So, today was another normal day in the office where I wander around the world wide web. And today, I stumbled upon a dance crew called, Elecoldxhot, on Youtube. Well, I already know them a while ago from Astro's Battleground show. Yes, they won that competition back in 2008 as ECX and again in 2009 as Elecoldxhot. Little did I know they actually won Showdown 2011 too! 

Okay, back to my main point. Yes, I came across a few of their videos in Youtube today and gosh, they have already went international! Malaysian pride! These guys are dancing machines! The best part about them, all of the crew members are equally good and equally important. Imagine, if any of them did even the slightest mistake, the whole dance routine will be ruined! And pay notice to their routine, all members get their time to stand in the center or even perform their own specialty! I love how the choreographer has no bias and let each and every member shine in their own way. 

Oh, and their style is pretty versatile too.

I already embedded 3 of their latest performances in Champions Tour Perth 2012! Be amazed!

p/s : i personally love Set 3 the most. :)

Blogging about the LG party and Standard Chartered Fun Run soon. Pictures are in process :)

The Penang Stay.

I don't know if you know, that I went to Penang for USM's interview regarding my undergraduate study. 
I don't know if you know, I was offered Communication. 
I don't know if you know, I was pretty reluctant about going and i actually blogged it too. 

You can read it back here

Anyways, I went for the interview and experienced a 3-day life of a university student. If you guys applied for USM but your course does not require you to go for interview and you are worried you might feel lost when you go there, you can read about my experience here.

I went by flight and reached Penang on 1st May at around 9am. I was considered lucky because I have seniors studying there that were able to guide me around throughout my stay.

partner for the trip- Miss Lynne.

So glad that we took the flight because if by bus/car, it will take up to 4 hours to travel from my place (Klang).

Safely touched down in Bayan Lepas Airport.

My lovely senior and his girlfriend that took care of us throughout the trip!

Alright, so first of all, you definitely need a car to travel around comfortably. And I'm glad my senior picked me up from the airport with a car. Haha. He brought us around as though we were tourists. Traffic was pretty crazy itself. And gosh, if you were to drive in Penang, please be safe because Penang drivers are pretty reckless I would say. :/

Lynne and I were supposed to stay at a rented house with my friend's dad. But the location of the house was not strategic enough so we ended up staying in USM's hostel! The one I stayed is called Desasiswa Tekun! It was one out of three hostels that is loacted outside USM. And heck, it was better than my sis's in UM!

The hostel was pretty comfy because they allocate 2 students per room but it was spacious enough for 4! Okay, this might sound pretty racist, but senior said they will definitely allocate you with the same race and in case you don't get the same race, you can ask to change room and your request will be handled almost immediately! O.O 

Interior of the room.

For Day 1, we almost went around the whole Penang and also a tour around USM campus. The environment was really good.
Since we are staying in the hostel, we had dinner in a mamak around the campus like a university student too. 

Next day, it was Lynne's interview session. So we woke up early and took the campus's shuttle bus to get to the Communication faculty. They basically labelled their shuttle bus by colour - Red, Blue, Purple, Yellow. And different colour shuttle has different route. To go to Communication Faculty, we took the Purple one! 

the bridge that connects Desasiswa RST with USM.

view from the bridge. Fyi, you'll enter USM after making a left turn at the traffic light.

this sign was found at every stop in the campus, asking the people not to stand at the road. LOL

Btw, coincidently during our visit it was their Expo Keusahawanan day. It is a subject where every university student have to take and learn how to be usahawan. LOL. 

supported my senior, Bella, by buying from her stall.

On second day, we actually have the guts of exploring Penang without my senior's guidance. Took shower and off we went to take the public transport.

Heading out.

In the bus to Komtar.

KOMTAR is basically like their bus terminal. Once you reach there, you'll see 1st Avenue, Prangin Mall, Komtar and i don't remember. 

After wandering around for like 2 hours around those shopping malls, we took another bus to Queensbay Mall! It is very important for you to ask people when you are away from home. We almost took the wrong bus and went only-god-knows where. But, we are smart enough to ask the bus driver and locals there. Apparently, the route they hang on the bus is not accurate all the time. So make sure you ask!

Maybe because its a work day, the mall was pretty dead. But, saw this place that I really like ::

The Borders! 
Best part of it, it has a Starbucks Coffee Shop inside.
Imagine, reading a book while having a cup of coffee, heaven!

a real lame store name!

After much walking around, we took another bus back to USM. Senior had class in the afternoon and met up with us during evening for dinner. We headed to Georgetown. Penang has the most awesome food ever that cannot be found in Klang! 

Kueh Chap, checked. 
Char Kuey Tiow, checked. 
Laksa, checked. 
Har Mee, uncheck. :( 
couldn't eat anymore.

My personal favourite - Kueh Chap. It is a dish where it has something like cheong fun plus the herb sauce and some duck meat plus herbal egg. You can also request for some internal organs but I don't eat that, so yeah..

Kueh Chap.

Char Kuey Tiow.

I forgot the name of this. 
But it is similar to our Leng Chi Kang.

So basically, thats all about the Penang trip. University life was pretty simple actually. As for a life as USM student, everything is pretty nice too because the public transport in Penang is clean and comfortable. Btw, right outside of USM, there are a lot of restaurants, stationeries and convenient stores. So, it is really convenient.

As for my interview, they ask pretty standard questions and I assume I did okay since I've been through numerous interviews thanks to Form 6! And well, I am talkative, so I can talk. Haha. My interview mates were pretty awesome people too. One from Perlis and another one from Alor Setar, Kedah. I can already imagine how all-over-Malaysia my friends will be in the future! :D

Review : Korean Food Dinner at Seoul Palace

As you guys know, i'm working for a company running a online purchasing site. Hence, I'm addicted exposed to buying deals online. Recently, I bought a Korean dinner deal with Kehpohs and Pang. Sad but true, this is my first authentic korean meal. BBQ Plaza is not authentic Korean food! :(

I'm not sure whether this is the first time for the rest of them too but we were all quite awed at the utensils used. So excited about it especially when i'm so into Korean stuffs recently! 
Fyi, i'm dreaming planning of migrating over to Korea in the future. 

Yeah, people have been calling me crazy and unpractical. But, lets wait and see.
One day, imma prove you wrong!  Pfft.

Seriously, recently i'm very into snapping photos of food. So yeah, the coming pictures are all about foods.
No human photos were snapped that night! I slacked :(

Had desserts in McD after that!

Korean BBQ.

Kimchi soup.

Mixed rice.

Side dishes that came along.

after meal.

Reviews ::

Honestly, the foods were just.. Meh. Not as good as expected. As this was my first try at authentic Korean food, I can't really compare much. But, Pang said he tried the BBK branch's before and it was better than the one we went (Bukit Tinggi branch).

My favourite was of course the grilled porks. Second will be the kimchi and third goes to the Kimchi soup. The mixed rice would have tasted better if it was spicier. 

The size of portions were quite disappointing too. Can you imagine, someone as skinny as Kim, complaining that she's not full after the meal?! :O

The price were not too friendly too. This meal cost us RM143.20 for 4 person. But I bought this from deals so we managed so save some money there.

Rate : 5/10

Sis turned 21!

My sis turned 21 on 10th May! She is finally a real adult! I hope she get to vote on the coming general election! Hope its not too late to register. :/

Aww shuck, why am I saying such thing in this post.

So yeah, since its the 21st birthday, it meant something to us, chinese. So parents decided to throw a dinner and invited relatives and few close friends. It was just a real simple dinner. I invited Sen Chen, Pang, Kim and Siew Lye! In the end, Sen Chen ffk-ed. LOL

To those who came, thanks for coming!

Now, pictures will do the talking ::

her cake!

sis's current coursemates.

sis's primary besties.


A lot of my relatives and sis's friends and bro's friends assumed that they were couple.
Well, I'm declaring it on my blog that THEY ARE NOT COUPLE!
But, we won't know about it in the future.
Lets wait and let things happen by itself between them :D

Make a wish!

Photobombed by sis's friend. 
Blurred him out.

my sis is getting cheeky recently, really.

with Lay Hoon.

Lastly, a family picture for the night!

Fyi, my parents are featured in my blog for the very first time!
*pops  confetti*

Hey sis, if you happen to see this, Happy Birthday!
Blessed 21st.
Take care of yourself and strive hard in your studies!
I know you're gonna be someone awesome one day!

For more pics, kindly refer to Facebook! :D

Personality test.

Stumbled across this personality test from Kim's blog.
Since I am free, gave it a try.

Results :

Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:
You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.
*oh my, when is this right person gonna appear?*

Your views on education
Education is less important than the real world out there, away from the classroom. Deep inside you want to start working, earning money and living on your own.
*partially untrue, education is important to me! But I do think experience worth more*

The right job for you:
You have many goals and want to achieve as much as you can. The jobs you enjoy are those that let you burn off your considerable excess energy.

How do you view success:
You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous.
*speaking my thought! shed tears*

What are you most afraid of:
You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear.

Who is your true self:
You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.

Overall, I find this personality test quite accurate. 
It leaves me thinking about my future path again..

Note : this is a long overdue post from April.

This flashmob was a promo for the movie "My Way" that is scheduled to show in all cinemas on 19th April.
Did you watch it?

Flashmobbing was fun. Especially when you're doing it with a bunch of great people. Thanks to Jess for bringing us to this gig! I had fun :)


Milo, my superior :)


Fyi, Alam was the host of this flashmob and he taught us the dance! 

We did the mob in 3 places - e@Curve, Pavilion, Fahrenheit 88.
Since I appeared most in the Fahrenheit's video, am posting that here. Spot me!
 p/s : my shirt was folded half and I'm wearing grey!
