I've reached a crossroad...

Yesh, yesh, I am aware I haven't been posting anything here lately... try a whole month... something I have not attempted since I started this whole thing!

'Nywho, regarding this blog... um... see, thing is... I don't think this is working out. In the beginning, it seemed alright... Already a li'l time-stealer this blog was as a toddler, but back then, I had time to spare... Time I could give away without regret... However, I can hardly say the same for the time I have in hand in my "right now". Sitting here typing all these out is already getting my head to spin around the idea of me sitting here wasting time on this when I could well be using this few minutes to do something more productive.

Honestly, before I commited to this, I already told myself I just MIGHT not have the time to update and nuture this "online diary" in months to come. But to my surprise... I managed to give it attention for slightly more than a year... a period of time I never thought I'd be able to pass and commit to. Brava babe! ...BUT... (there's always a but in'it?) ...BUT... I think this blog's "expiry date" is waaaayyyyyyyyyc overdue.

There's sooooooooooooooooooo much going on in my life and I'd be more than happy to share it with those who have the time to read about it BUT the "problem" is that I don't got the time (anymore) to sit down and blog about everything... things that make me happy... things that upset me... random things that have no significance but yet can easily be an inspiration to my next blog post. ...IF ONLY blogging is as simple as pushing a button and literally just telling you about what happened! I just might have continued blogging then. (...Oh wait, THERE IS laa, Ru! It's called: Vlogging.)

'Nywho, it seemed like a beneficial thing to invest in (post-SPM) as it not only served as one of my pastimes but it also was a way to ensure that my (written) English never went "karat" (rusty). BUT it's different now... I have (other) more important issues to deal with in my life. Yes, I totally agree that blogging is FUN FUN FUN!! (Teehee...) I still am thankful to a dear friend, Ming Wai, who indirectly "pushed" me to start a blog. I honestly didn't regret starting this. I had fun while developing it, I had fun watching it grow and flourish and I enjoy the fact that it made other people smile and laugh and feel many other different emotions.

I have put in too much heart, sweat and effort into "Too Young To Die, Too Drunk To Live" to heartlessly DELETE it just like that... I'd be lying if I said, "I won't feel a thing if you deleted this blog... Not a pinch, not a sharp pain in my chest, nothing... Not a damn thing I tell ya!" ...So, y'know, maybe I won't literally delete it... Maybe I'll just let it sit here in the realms of the cyber world... And I'll pop by every now and then to do some 'dust-blowing' and reminiscing. Maybe... just maybe.

Now you know how I HATE blogging without pictures!! Hehehe... so, in collaboration with my official-signing-off from being Bloggerella, I shall leave you on a good note, by sharing with you, a few of my recent preciously happy moments!

Thanks a bunch for all your support all this while... I appreciate it!
Do take care and be good.
God bless, cheers!


On Merdeka eve, my girlfriends and I went for pool at Brew Ball's.
It's very fun when it's been months since you last hanged with yer best buds!

Snapshots for memory!!

Ru working during BULAN RAMADAN:

I started off with the Kitchen Department... I was the noodle lady!

"Ahhhhhhh... Am soooo gonna miss you guys!"
"Come buka puasa with us..."
Okay, this is just me camwhoring in the ladies after service...
Fine, fine... Lalala...

Cause like, I too am tryna figure it out.)

So, few weeks before Semester 2 ended... I became the godmother to a friend's child... (Suh Shien is his real ma, btw... Ahaha.) Everyone, meet my godson (kai zai), Monkey!

Ru and godson, Monkey...
He's just the cutest bundle of joy...
Aww... I so DON'T see the resemblance...
But that is a good thing! (HAHAHA!!)
Towards the last few lessons of F&B...
Chiang had time to let us play a few games... to perk up the class energy!

*Lifting and descending connected straws gether-gether*
Yeay, we did well!!
Look at them big ol' smiles...
Oh is it thaaat obvious that we won?? HAHA!
Okay, so recently, Bin Bin finally turned 18!
...And well, naturally... he got C-R-E-A-M-E-D!
("Happy 18th, boy! ...One you'll never forget o!")
Few days later... we C-R-E-A-M-E-D yet another Birthday Boy!
Muahaha... It's FUN when you're not the one getting creamed!
"Happy Birthday, Chiang!"

So this basically wraps up my Semester 2... Now, I am to prepare myself for yet another semester. Yung and I are gonna "breeze" through Sem 3 together... hopefully! AHAHA... But am glad he's gonna be there with me though. At least I know I have someone to turn to if and when I feel like I wanna yank out some of my hair! HAH!

Yes, Ritz-Carlton... Expect the unexpected.
Yung and Ru are storming in this November!
Kwang kwang kwang...

Personality Tests (...ain't half bad.)

So, ahaha… today’s supposedly the day I complete all me “pending” assignments. Howwwwweverrrr… my concentration could only last that long. HAH! Soooooo… naturally, li’l miss Ru would have gone elsewhere in search of excitement and laughter. I went to the living room (but it felt so empty). I also went to Shan’s room (but she was getting ready to leave the house for a date). There was the toilet (but there was only so much I could do in there) and last but not least the glorious kitchen (sadly, the only thing I walked outta there with was a refreshing glass of cold water). *pouts*

So ‘nywho, I went back to my notebook and tried to continue where I left off. …BUT got distracted (again) and went to reply my blog’s Cbox. After that, I went to read blogs (…Yesh, I know I know!! I’ve drifted even further! Gaah~~!)

Marilyn’s latest post is what inspired my current post. She had this link where we can take a personality test to like, y’know, tell-us-about-us kinda thing. Gotta admit, at first, I was a li’l skeptical not to mention doubtful that site could ever read me right. Despite all that uncertainty, I went for it. AND TO MY SURPRISE, the results were sh!t-creepingly-accurate!! Well, sorta laa, to some extent. Like prolly 88% accurate! That’s a lot of %! Like whoa~~!

I took the “Get to Know Yourself Better” one first before proceeding to the “The Clothes You Wear” one.

I am not going to share the former because I feel that some of the information is a li’l too personal for publishing. (Heh! …So jeah!) …Well, initially I thought to myself that I wasn’t even gonna share the results with y’all (like, at all) but then, wokay, fine, I won’t be such a meannie—I’ll share my results on “The Clothes You Wear” one. *Ru smiles*

What others see from your style?

You're a romantic at heart. Sensitive and polite, you don't reveal your feelings to the world and prefer to contemplate your thoughts alone. Nevertheless, you care about others and make a loyal friend.

What your nightclothes reveal?

You are friendly and always in good mood. You are candid and helpful, and can be sexy at times too.

What others see from your ties?

You enjoy being alone. You like to life the simple but good life, and you cherish your freedom. You are thoughtful, confident and uninterested in glamor.

What others see from your belts?

You are a lonely and demanding person. You are hardworking as well as intelligent, and can be passionate when in love.

What others see from your shoes?

You like to be the center of attention. You like to look good at all times and probably never leave the house without makeup on. Although you may be intelligent, you're also insecure about your looks. (SO NOT! I DISAGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT lehh!) You care about others, and will always listen to what they have to say.

What others see from your earrings?

You are a sweet and talkative person. You are sociable, energetic and interesting, and get easily bored by the same old things. (Hmmm...) You are always looking for adventure.

The last analysis:

You are probably a clever and adventurous person. You love to learn new things, and enjoy socializing with friends. Although you enjoy your freedom, you cherish peacefulness and like to spend time alone with your thoughts.

As mentioned, I am not going to say that these tests are a HUNDRED PERCENT TRUE because it isn’t. However, there are percentages of truth in it and that is why I think it’s relevant to share it with y’all. Nonetheless, don’t just take my word for it… Go take 'em for yourself and then come and tell me whether or not them darn tests analyzed you right, aight? You’d prolly be as knocked for six as I was! Enjoy!

“Get to Know Yourself Better”:

“The Clothes You Wear”:

A special thanks to Marilyn darling for sparking inspiration for this post.
