Quick update.

Oh my. Life is so hectic right now! So much are happening. Tsk. Remember when I said I hate changes? I still do, but life has to go on :) 

E is going to move to KT by next Sunday. I have to babysit El (his beloved cat) for a while. I also (kinda) adopted a new cat. A cute, naughty and hyperactive bob tail cat. Sangatlah nakal! But very cute though. Will post some pictures later ;)

Anyway, I'm selling clothes online for side income. Please visit my blogshop Wonder Apparel for more details. I am selling vintage, pre-loved & new old stock clothes. Doakan saya murah rezeki! Hehe..

Till then, goodbye!

Kota Bharu Car-boot sale!

So much is going on in my life right now, and I'm expecting some big changes will be happening as well. Tsk. How I hate changes. Within these 4 years, I am building my comfort zone bits by bits. Slowly, I added some friends, someone and new routines and of course I dread the thought of knowing that my life have to change. Sobs. So much of being a control freak, deep down inside I know I can't control everything. I just hope that things will be okay :)

Meanwhile, I am keeping myself busy! I'm starting a small business with a friend: Car-boot  sale! Can you believe that? I still can't :P And boy, it is a lot of work! We had to sort the good clothes out, and washed them. But we are satisfied since what we bought was a hugeeeee bundle of good clothes!


Location: in front of Tesco Kota Bharu

of English language

Just a short update. Yesterday I took an English test in a language centre in order to know which class is suitable for my level. Not that I'm interested in taking classes. Actually I went there to accompany E to survey that language centre office. Anyway, they said my level is intermediate level (the highest level available there). After discussing with E, I just realize something. I don't really understand grammar. I can't tell the difference between past continuous tense, simple past tense, or past participle tense. I usually get the grammar right because I'm very familiar with the language, not because I understand it. While this is not a big problem for me (since I'm in medicine field not journalism etc), E thought that I might get confused easily if I don't really understand grammar. Come to think of it, I'm also too confused with US and UK English! While Malaysia use UK English, my professor prefer US English. Ahaha..

So what's the difference between US and UK English? I find it's easier to write using US English. It's quite forgiving unlike UK English. UK English need to be very precise. I don't know how to explain. But it's very precise in describing things. Lemme give u an example:

US - I have a car.
UK - I've got a car.

(Please read this link for explanation)

Anyway, I notice in some US journals they can even start a sentence using the word "because" or "and". Hmm.. Or maybe academic writing is not that strict? I don't know.

Freedom of speech.

People who talks about politics in Facebook are annoying. There I say it. But it's their Facebook so who am I to tell them what to or not to write. Pft.

Anyway, about democracy. Some people should realize that every system has flaws. Many had bashed Saddam Hussain for his dictatorship (as labelled by the west). But can you say that Iraq is way better after Saddam? No.

Not that I really care, but freedom of speech should comes with great responsibility. Wait, not just that. It should comes with "please use your brain before you talk" sign.

Of avoiding reality.

Hello, here I am starting another blog after sooooo many blogs. But I intend for this one to be the last. I hope so.  I miss writing! I really miss it especially after having a string of readers. Sobs.

But I'm a grown woman girl now. One thing that I've learn from the past (in a hard way) is that sharing about your feelings in social/internet networks is never good. Because not every one gets you.

And I have soooo much to think about, some confrontations to do. But sometimes feelings and revelations will just have to wait.
