Okay, so it could have been that USA was able to score a goal in the last few minutes and bring it into penalties. But sadly, no. My beloved USA soccer team is out of the World Cup. And my nerves were not ever considered. D: I think it was a great team effort at the end, they tried so very hard, and although it wasn't their day, I still love you USA. ♥

I mean, this isn't just a soccer thing and I chose USA to support. USA is where I grew up, where I practically learned how to speak, read, spell, the place where I experienced my very first day in school, my first friends, basically first for everything. It's definitely the place I'd say is my hometown. I am mentally attached to it. Hearing the anthem before the game brings pride into my heart because its the only anthem I actually know. American English is the only language I can actually speak. (Not including like a 100 words of French). Its my home, and I don't only support it for the sake of supporting it, I love America.

So evidently, I'm very disappointed that they lost to Ghana, but good effort, you guys played your hearts out. Donovan and Bradley, you are still my heroes. :)

As for the MLB, I can hardly understand a single line of the scoreboard, but lets hope the Boston Red Sox are doing okay. :) HAHA.

And omg, watch the trailer. :)

stone throw away

Landon Donovan,

You are the man.


Yes, watched the game last night. Thank goodness the mamak store in Centrepoint showed both matches. At the 91st minute, I went absolutely bonkers. :D Screamed like crazy and jumped out of my chair, everythingg. USA, you are amazing. :) There was a big crowd of Americans screaming with me too. :D We made more noise than the England supporters.

But honestly, USA shouldn't only score at like, the 3rd last minute. It puts too much pressure on my poor nerves. D:

Okay, so I'm hoping, praying, that Mexico beats Argentina and England wins against Germany, and and South Korea beats Uruguay. I don't care what you guys think. I don't like Argentina's uniform and Michael Ballack has a weird name. HAHA. :P

School has been pretty okay, with all its drama and everything. I've been holding up. Moved to the new Resource 4, under Uncle Kevin now. :) It's very quiet and veryy cold. I almost froze today. And very isolated. Its like, I hardly talked to the people in Resource 1 nowadays.

My math has been such a pain. On 1201 now, and its complicated. Not exactly hard, just complicated. :P And since none of the supervisors are familiar with it, its very hard to get help.

Uncle Kevin shared a good devotion today. Jeremiah 1. Go read it. You were put where you are right now for a reason. Just like how God knew Jeremiah before he was even formed in the womb. Just like how Esther was placed in the palace for the very reason of saving her people.

Scenario for the week : It's tough being a woman thrown a giant-sized weight. (Esther - Beth Moore)

#o1. I cannot believe school starts tomorrow. D:
#o2. The Celtics lost. Gosh, that is just saddening.
#o3. Despite all the comments that the Red Soxs are doing badly this season, I still have faith in them. :)
#o4. The WC keeps me awake up to 4 in the morning. It's totally worth it.
#o5. USA seriously should of won their last match, the referee disqualified their 3rd goal for no reason whatsoever. What a bummer, I know. You guys still can win the next one. ♥
#o6. My eyelids feel like they are weights holding them down.
#o7. I am currently in the middle of reading Sense and Sensibility. Jane Austen is seriously such a hero. I'm wondering though, what is the difference between sense and sensibility?
#o8. I should go study for a LPT tmr and do my evil Essentials of Communication projects. D: Evil evil, indeed. I have to pick one of the three pairs (Peter and John, Philip and Nathaniel, and Thomas and Matthew) and make an essay on why they were paired together. Greeaattt.

piglet and pooh

"Pooh, promise me you won't forget about me, ever. Not even when I am a hundred."

Pooh thought for a little.

"How old shall I be then?"


Pooh nodded. "I promise," he said, "and if you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you."

Enter title here

My holiday has been the definition of boring, but I'm still glad for the break. All I've been doing is staying at home and working. Seriously, I need an outing. Who's willing to arrange? :)

The World Cup started last Friday, and it's gotten me all hyped up. USA all the wayy. ♥ I am a loyal person. HAHA. Random note: did you know that the players exchange their SWEATY shirts at the end of the game? I think that extremely disgusting, but cool in a way.

On Saturday, my sister woke me up at 1am when the game starts only at 2.30am. :O I was so tempted just to stay in bed. Anyhow, the game was crazy intense. AND I'M SO GLAD THEY TIED. Better than England winning.

Jo is going to bake on Wednesday. I have great pity on the cookies that will most probably burn in the oven. :P

If this blog post was an essay I had to write for an English paper, I'd probably get comments from my English teacher such as, "Lack of clarity, conciseness, coherence, unity and logic. Badly written." Like I care. This is only being published for the sake of keeping my blog updated. Happy, jo? :)

don't forget

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...

I'll always be with you.

-A. A. Milne

lampposts and teddybear-shaped pancakes.

Daniel is beyond the world's definition of cheeky.

So I just came back from Fraser's Hill, and I tell you, I hate windy roads. It made me feel so sick I threw up into this plastic bag that had holes in it, and yea. It wasn't pleasant. D: You imagine for yourself. Use your little brain that is probably on the process of rotting ever since school holidays started.

To start off, I haven't gotten bored yet so that is a pretty big accomplishment.
And you should be proud of me, I haven't done work for like, 5 days. :)

Anyway, Fraser's Hill was pretty fun. We stayed in a friend's apartment, okay take that back, in a friend's apartments. They have two that are in the same complex, just different floors. So my sister and I slept in one and went to the other one to eat and all. I was in the other one most of the time, because my life basically revolves around eating 24/7. :P

This is. what. happened.

Sunday. We walked to the waterfall and it was at least a 12km walk. I was soooo exhausted.
Monday. We went for tea at this smokehouse, and after that... walking back, we got caught in the rain. It was pouring cats and dogs and my sister and I were running like madman.
Tuesday. I got carsick.

Is that not eventful or what. Plus, I indulged myself in movies.

Free Willy - Love love okras. They are so loyal and kind. Since the plot is rather like the Animal Ark series (and I love Animal Ark), I'll give this a 7.5/10.

You Got Mail - typical plot. It got so long-winded I was like, "Hurry up and admit already!" 5.5/10.

River Wild - I tell you, it was so intense I sat for 30 minutes after the movie trying to recover my senses. Yes, my tolerance for drama is very low. I'd give this a 6/10.

Pride and Prejudice - Watched this again. Love love love it. Love the book like crazy too. "Sometimes the last person on earth you want to be with is the one person you can't be without." Jane Austen is such a hero. 9/10.

The Prince and the Pauper - old classic. It has a beautiful moral. Amazing how adults just don't believe the children even when they are being perfectly honest. 8/10.

Ready for the pictures?

On Sunday, we had a little "photo-shoot". Put on our sundresses, and headed off for a walk. :)

We passed these gallow thingy-ma-jiggs that scared the nerves out of me. D:

And yes, I have an obsession about lampposts. ♥
It reminds me of Narniaaa. :)


On Monday, we headed off to the smokehouse. They have amazing scones and strawberry preserve. And the tea was really good. :D I loved the setup though.

Pretty, I knowww. :)

And this morning, my sister made me.....

A teddybear-shaped pancake! Nomnom. ♥
(which I threw up on the way down)

So that's what I've been doing the last 4 days of my holidays. I'm definitely thinking of going to 1u one of these days and make the most out of the Padini Sale they're having. :) Next Saturday (or more like early Sunday morning), I'll be watching England vs. USA in the World Cup, go USA all the way. (Although England will most probably win.) I'm looking forward to July 8th when The Last Song finally comes out in Malaysia. I have plenty of things to keep me occupied, not to mention school work.

Oh, and on a random note, the amount of people who visit my blog has diminished greatly. I am heartbroken. :P Haha. And c'mon peoples, you very well see the LEAVE A COMMENT button below, don't you now?

That was a long post. Till later, have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious 12 days till the end of the holidays. :)

pies, quiche, and tarts.

No words can describe how thankful I am for school holidays. :) :) I don't actually hate school, but it gets pretty stupid sometimes. So yeaa, give me a 'yippeee' for the 2 week holidays! :D

Today was the usual, messy, party day where I had to cut cake, watermelon (some smart person brought an entire watermelon - uncut), and run around cleaning up people's messes. We had some short speeches about our supervisors and sang 'One Voice'. I think it went very well considering that we only had one practice.

I also labored 3 hours yesterday to bake my delicious lemon tarts that were a total success. Shoo yummyy. But those 3 hours were like, a lot of time consumed so therefore, I shall stick to my policy - only bake when necessary.

Well, this is a short update just to keep you content that I do update my blog. I'm off for Fraser's Hill tomorrow, so when I get back, I'll update about it with plenty of pictures. :D

Time to paint my nails, wear a summer dress, and put those shades on - cause its SUMMER TIME. :)
