I was thinking it over while taking a shower a little while ago.

I have decided that I want to close this blog.

It is time to move on.

I have made new friends in this blog. I have rediscovered old ones here.

It had been great. It had been the best year of my life.

Thank you all for coming by regularly to offer words of kindness and support. I appreciate all that you've done for me. I really do.

But for now, it is time to move on, time to grow up.

PS. I thought I'd share this with you. My shamrock pendant is finally on the way here to me. All the way from the US to Australia and then here to Malaysia. To me. I'd been wanting a shamrock pendant for a long time, so that I can feel lucky everyday. Only one month to go.

Need to sleep

It's late.


I have a headache.

I can't sleep.

The funfair at the 1 Utama carpark pretty much rocked my socks.

They had this in Sunway Lagoon and they called it the Sky Flyer. I went on it once when I was about 13, I think.

The rides there are pretty pricey, ranging between 2 to 4 tokens per ride (each token costs RM2). But, well, once you're there, I don't think you'll just pay for the RM3 entrance fee and walk around to take in the sights, right?

The ferris wheel was huge. And I can't believe we all forgot to take a ride in it.

So, anyway. I was pretty excited about the Sky Rider thingy. It's like a baby swing suspended on long chains except that it spins really fast. Really fast. Very good. I like.

Josh and Quant were very adventurous. They took a spin (literally) on the Vortex. Mei Mei and I were feeling nauseous just looking at them.

Ohkay, fine. I was actually afraid.

Moving on. There's this one other ride that was just spinningspinningspinning and it gave me a backache. I don't like.

And ohhhhhhhhh. We played bumper cars, too~. I don't remember the last time I played bumper cars, but I figured this is a pretty good way to tame the road bully in me. I was attacking leftrightupdowncentre. Die, you all~

I was bumping everyone in sight. See, bump. Don't see, still bump. I like~


And Elaine, just so that you know you're still my friend, I went on the Challenger. And I did not throw up. You can ask Josh or Mei Mei *grins widely*

To be fair, I was feeling woozy the whole night after that last ride. No good.

I needed to take a breather after the Challenger. I had to swallow my screams.

I have one major gripe.

Why isn't there any cotton candy?

Mei Mei took this picture of us. It's supposed to resemble Winter Sonata. Ha ha.

I was stalking Xiaxue's blog, you see. Out of sheer boredom. Absolutely.

And then I don't know what possessed me. But I read all the comments in her latest post.

One link led to another.

Oh dear.

Whatever happened to Dawn?

Land of not that many wonders

See, these are the kind of pictures my mum and dad used to take when we went to Genting. I don't think that seesaw thing is there anymore.

I remember going to Genting when I was a little girl.

I was probably at most 3 years old.

At age 3, everything's exciting, everything's fascinating.

It didn't matter that kids weren't allowed into the casino. Why would I wanna go in there anyway?

Plus, I had a colorful poncho to keep me warm.

This is one of the three pictures we took in Genting. Yes it was in the room. We don't pride ourselves in being original.

I went to Genting a couple of weeks ago with Josh.

I didn't have a poncho to keep me warm, but I was excited about finally being old enough to walk into the casino.

But all the same I had to show my identity card.


And I lost 30 bucks to the slot machine.

Josh lost about 150 bucks.

Maybe Genting ain't that fascinating after all.

Oh How I've Grown

Phang took some pictures of Hooi Yee and I last week for his assignment. We passed the playground on the way to his place and he suggested that Hooi Yee and I crawl in to those bright tunnels for a picture.

We obliged.

Oh dear. We've grown so much and it's so cramped up inside we can hardly breathe properly...

We were glad that it took less than 5 minutes before Phang got the shot he wanted. Good. Or we'd have died in there. Of muscle pulls or something like that.

When I got out, I realized just how much I've grown over the years. Gone were the days when I could play hide and seek in those tunnels, crouching, crawling, scraping my knees.

Gone were days like these when those tunnels looked like double storey houses to me.
