Malaysia is uncontrollable slangs, rojak language and even more rojak people. Happy Independence Day! Let us all cherish the #freedom that we have, unite in our similarities and work together with our differences. Happy 57th, Malaysia! Tanah tumpahnya darahku! #inimalaysiakita #freedomfestpg #love #peace #respect
'I've learned that the first rule of grieving is that there are no rules. Grieving is neither neat nor orderly. There's no clearly defined path of timetable to follow. Different aspects of grief (the painful separation, disbelief, anger, guilt, hopelessness, etc.) fade in and out of our hearts with no discernible pattern. And there's is no way to know how many times we'll experience any particular aspect or so-called stage of grief.'
—Jeff Olson, one of the writers of ODJ (Our Daily Journey).
Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.

So below is the bucket list I’ve been talking about yesterday. It’s not quite complete yet, but I have a separate journal for this so I’ll add anything that I think is worthy to be in my bucket list. Here goes nothing:
1. Be a tuition teacher for at least a month
2. Get a job a Starbucks (preferably a barista!)
3. Eat Spade’s with Jon (my brother)
4. Eat Marshall’s with the ‘food gang’ a.k.a. really close classmates.
5. Bungee-jump off KLCC (tallest building in Malaysia whoo!)
6. Have a vaca in Aussie and bring back nougats!
7. Bake macaroons. (Don’t ask. I also don’t know why)
8. Drive around Penang Island with Jon.
9. Spring clean during winter (even tho there are no seasons here in Malaysia)
10. Buy a stranger a drink
11. Write a short story and finish it
12. Get someone to edit the short story
13. Publish the short story under the pseudonym ‘Holly Eckhart’ (Again, I don’t know why)
14. Go to Kuching, Sarawak and check out what’s there
15. Take random selfies with even more random strangers
So there you have it! My bucket list! So if you happen to stumble into this post of mine, feel free to tell me what other interesting that’s there to do here in Malaysia after I graduate high school.P.S. I’ve been a tuition teacher before for one whole year but it’s a one-on-one tuition. I’m hoping to teach a whole class of students (: P.P.S. I might be applying for March or June intake instead of the January one (: So yeah
Whoever that’s out there if you happen to stumble upon my blog, do not panic, as it is almost dead.
A few updates of my life:
1. Mom’s currently fighting cancer. YOU GO MOM! Praying for her every day (:
2. Trial exams for a major public exam (SPM) are coming up in less than a month and I’M SO BUSY! GOSH.
3. I’ve decided to make a bucket list of things to do after SPM and most of it are promises I’ve made to my brother, Jon.
4. I could drive now. YAY!
5. In fact I just drove to tuition and back alone. Feels good to be still intact and alive.
6. I know more about the Holocaust, Osama bin Laden and the Navy SEALs, and Africa over the past couple of years. LOL. That’s how long since I’ve updated my blog right?
7. I’m currently very much alert right now and I don’t know why.
8. I’m doing my homework and trying to finish everything so that I’ll have time to study for trials.
9. I’m going for a movie and then futsal tomorrow (YAYS!)
10. I have this rash on my right hand for like 3 days now. I think a bug bit me.
So yeah that’s it. There are many many more updates but I can’t possibly list them out. Coz I needa finish my homework without time travelling. That’s it for now!
P.S. Will be posting my bucket list soon (;
The past few days have been pretty cool. Sometimes it’s hard to believe we actually get to do this… so thank YOU. Alright, we’ve still got a lot further to go. Hold on tight!
