the beach is a magic I can never comprehend

our first ever all-couples trip
it was a totally different experience
I can't say I liked it, but I can't say I hated it as well.
maybe I need some getting used to. lol.

it's the beach!!!
yeaaaaaaaa... .lml
 这短短的旅程让我看到了我们和别人有多不同 而我非常喜欢我们这么的不同






那个平安夜前夕,我们在海边 =D


how was your Christmas? =)

Saturday, December 28, 2013


I mentioned about the fashion showcase way back, RIGHT??
so in case you didn't know, I picked Costume Design, a subject from the Cultural Faculty as my elective.
Firstly, because it has no exam and fits perfectly into my timetable (NO LATE CLASSES!)
Second, I have always loved making things, and we all know that. (maybe only me haha)

I sort of regretted halfway because it didn't seem as enjoyable as I thought it would be, but had to stick up to my own choice, because add and drop week was over hahaha. and also because only losers quit. #badass

it was a solely assessment based subject, and our final and also biggest marks contributor is to design a costume for a fantasy character, to be worn on the showcase. I thought I was going solo until Misaki saved my life and asked me to join her XD, but up until today I still have a lot of imagination for the Bella's wedding dress that I initially planned to do.

too much ranting, I'm sorry, took me long enough to come back blogging again so I guess my ideas and words accumulated and are threatening to burst out now, lol.
this, is the development of sketches. oh, if the title hasn't made it obvious enough, we were doing Pease-blossom, one of the fairies in A Midsummer Night's Dream.

we had a lot of prettier ideas but all easier drawn than done. so here's the final sketch!

Our model Huiwen on stage!!
she really looked like a doll and it seemed like the character was tailored for her =D

tadaa! close up of her makeup, done by Misaki and her course mate who came to help


Fishtailed her hair and blue spray!
we wished to find Tiffany blue hair spray but once again were defeated by the world. haha.
we can finally have the hairstyles only seen on tumblr and Instagram!
I was super excited. lol

with my partner and our model. both so beautiful, which explains my sad face. haha.

and the lovely friends who came to support =D

the costume which we made out of scratch.

not really scratch, but all we had was the black corset!
still a great achievement right? yay!! thank you!

a last photo before ending the night, isn't the flower crown lovely?

someone approached us and asked to borrow our costume for Pharm night next March

thanks a lot to my partner who helped a lot in things I totally cannot do, and also the model who sacrificed a lot of time which should be used to study/ complete assignment T.T.

successfully got myself into ultra bad mood again and tried to blog about my happy outing with course mates weeks ago but even the wifi has to fail me. =.=

1 oral test without any practices before with new group mates on Monday
1 final exam on Tuesday
1 fashion show to go with the accessories and makeup not yet finalized on Thursday
1 2,000 words individual assignment on Friday

I just can't wait for all these to be over T.T

I finally tried IKEA MEATBALLS!

it cannot get any more obvious, about 2 months back, I finally tried IKEA meatballs.
oh wait, I can't believe it's been 2 months T.T
om nom nom nom nom
it was really yummeh, and I thought I would be disappointed for expecting too much, I was so wrong!

for chicken wings, I prefer Pizza Hut. hehe.

broccoli also so-so only but it still felt good to have veggies =D

cinnamon roll, should had tried the cakes, Yihhai said they were VERY NICE!

something salmon.

fish and chips

the winner of the day was MEATBALLS! obviously. haha.

we then rushed for the last Mayday Nowhere 3D movie

me: Oi, can you stand in front ar? I always look so big in pictures ==
zhangqijian: ok lo

and then I was gone. haha.

so that's my first ever Ikea meatball and first ever 3D experience.

where have I been recently?
well, if you could just look around more carefully, you would find me beneath a whole stack of assignments.
caution: might require some serious digging.

unrelated post title, it's going to rain again.

what actually happened after the PTUM cultural night is that a whole row of spot light fell down to the audience seats because one side of the string snapped. the performers and most of the members of PTUM were outside having a wrap up session in another room. we suddenly heard a loud crash, and I did something which I wouldn't normally do. I rushed into the hall. it was chaotic and I couldn't get anything at first because I thought it was the props on the stage. then I saw a familiar shirt, Yihhai was standing near to where the spot light crashed. I walked nearer and saw Chyemei and Nyak Hong, both not moving. Huiwen said she heard Nyak shouting very loudly but I guess I was too shocked to hear anything. before I could react, we were chased out and soon they were rushed to the hospital. when I finally registered the fact that my friends who were waiting for us just to take photos on the stage with the props, were hurt, I couldn't stop crying and I couldn't shake off the image of them on the seats. it was only until later on when we were more calmed down that we got to go to the hospital, Nyak was being treated, Yihhai was still recovering from the shock. but I really thank God because all 8 of the casualties are now discharged, and thank God it didn't fall directly on their heads.
it is always during the rough times that we learn to appreciate the things that we so easily take for granted.
these are the very best things I have in college and they are the very best friends anyone can wish to have

and of course, I called back home the next morning because I have been far away especially since I started getting busy with final practices, so busy that I forgot to reply their good luck messages before the performance.

life is so unpredictable, and I really have to keep reminding myself to cherish everything I have.

the day after PTUM

the Cultural Night is finally over.
this whole day I have been sleeping, waking up, scrolling my phone and sleeping again
I am not sure if it is the post PTUM syndrome but I think the bigger part is shock and fatigue
all I want to do is shut out everything and sleep

then after I woke up, I decided to do something I have been wanting to do for long.
I cut my fringe.
but because of my very blur mental state, I made a huge cut
it was a HUGE mistake

and now I have no idea how to face the whole world.

December 01

so fast
it's December already!!

no matter how much I wish I weren't, I am still just a girl with an unstable mood curve
no matter how much I wish I wouldn't, I can't help thinking too much
no matter how much I would hate myself for saying or doing certain things, I still do so


unhappiness aside, happy 23 months or 700 days baby. =)

wished I were a boy.

have I ever mentioned about the new cafe in campus?
I love the ambiance and the salad there =D
at least I get to eat something green!!
but despite my love for salad, I have been really moody lately, maybe because I haven't been eating ice-cream for long. haha.

nah, ice-cream is a big part of it, but stress definitely comes up second. =/
I enjoy the dances more and more but I can't wait for the whole thing to be over

1st, need to get my fringe back
2nd, assignments piling up, though it's mainly the result of my own procrastination
3rd, need rest, oversleeping so much I find it scary
4th, back pain, leg pain, pain every where, body needs rest!
5th, need sleep
6th, need sleep
7th, need sleep


oh, if you were wondering about the title, boys are less emotional. lol.

the creepy thing named age

I remember earlier this semester when I was packing for Year 3, I told myself I would dress nicely to class. I wasn't aiming to look fancy and fluffy, but at least something decent and presentable.
but as time passes and activities and sleep get in my way, I forgot whatever I have told myself
and here's one of my very common outfits to class, with flip flops some more.
why? because there is practice at night and I don't wanna wash another set of clothes!

I didn't really find this change bothering until yesterday, a course mate of mine looked at me with 'sayang' eyes, or at least that is what I got from her look, and asked "Melody, are you very tired?"
I was kinda shocked because I didn't see that coming, and asked why?
She said oh, it's from the way you dress up, or dress down. T..T

once upon a time, a few course mates of mine would ask me where I got my clothes from
and now all I put on is some club T-shirt or activity T-shirt which I wear to sleep

yeaa, I got up from bed and rush to class in my pajamas.
I really need a change. T.T

and this, is my face NOW.
pimples, pores, cracked lips.
thank God I am still fair though, I have given up on sunblock because I rather catch another 5 minutes of sleep.

I guess all these show that I am not a good juggler of time, activities and personal ties. ==

two months back I looked so much more youthful and radiant T.T
 and most importantly, there were no pimples T...T

it's really time I make some changes
but I have hard time trying to sleep before 2pm now.
HELP!!! =/

Coffee Stain by Joseph @ Fahrenheit 88

being a professional stalker, of course I am familiar with the new places people go.
one fine day we decided to have a tai tai session to pamper ourselves since PT training is so tiring and we deserve to treat ourselves better (excuses, excuses everywhere!)
I love all these cute wooden, vintage stuffs.

Red Velvet =D
which I think was overpriced. because I could've gotten something better with that price :3

Huiwen's dark chocolate.

and Lily's mocha or something.
which was surprisingly the best, although I love chocolate as well. haha.

throwing back, how I wished there was Chocolate Obsession sample.
after 6 days as La Cremeria promoter, I think it is very possible that I had eaten close to a tub of samples
the Almond Pecan Praline is the best so far, oooooh, lovely.
and ahem, salary is coming in very soon =DD!

what have I brought upon myself? T.T

this blog is insanely taken over by FOOD, FOOD and FOOD.
how not to get fat laaa? =/
joined the Red Bull Monkey Run a few weeks back

with certain expectations, of course.
shit, fat. ==

you have no idea how nervous I was. hahaha

and off I went
and poof!! I fell. ==
the pain was excruciating all I wanted to do was lie there
imagine plunging down, with the momentum gained from the beginning of the rollers, with your body bent an inverted V shape. it really hurt and tears immediately came to my eyes @@.
when I stood up, I couldn't help but keep bending my body because that was about the only thing which made me feel better. T.T

rested for about 10 minutes, I mustered all my courage and stood in front of the evil rollers again
but I failed, and fell again. T.T. thank God this time I was no longer folded when I landed.
the dumb games at the side were about the only games I passed.
YAY, I could stand a numbed left hand for 40 seconds. ha. ha. ha.

the devil. I wasn't the only victim. actually most of the people got hurt at the rollers.

and I stupidly thought I could at least get to the Jumbo stage. T.T

and there. I paid RM10, got myself a new T-shirt, a bottle which I haven't got to use yet, a can of red bull, 4 tubes of Code 10 hair gel (who still uses hair gel? O.O it's 2013! lol), some shavers, and a hurt back/waist. T.T. things which were once so easy for me can barely be done without feeling the pain.

I know I sound so negative, but it has been weeks, and the pain is still there.
nonetheless, I would still go for it next year. hahhahaha.
yes, some people never learn. ==

plus, I had dessert to end the painful morning! I guess that more or less compensates for a little of my grief.

and yea, FOOD again. hahaha.
