One step closer

Every success begin with a small step. Whenever you take a small step,

You are one step closer.

Our goal is far away and every small steps

seem totally insignificant. 

But if we look on how far is the goal away, and not

how many steps we have taken,

Disappointment is what to be expected.
Tell your self that every small steps you make,

You are one step closer.

Life is Good now =)

Although this is my holiday and I need to get up like 7am everyday and join the crowd to jams the road all the way to my oracle class at UM and later on join the crowd again on the road all the way back to my home.

But I am happy and xinfu  =D

I do not need to set my alarm clock as my sister who was getting up for work will wake me and my little brother up. Being call up is always sound better than annoying alarm from phone.

After that, I will go to kitchen and greet my grandma morning. She was doing morning chores at kitchen. Everyday, my mom will fried two eggs and leave it on the table before going to market. That is my everyday breakfast and lunch box.

Usually I will ate the first egg with a slice of bread outside of my house because I love to see my dog dancing around me to get a slice of what I eating.

After my mom coming back from market, I will be watching hokkien tv-series in living hall with my grandma, mom and my younger bro who soon going to work. My sister had leave to work by now.

My class is at 9AM everyday. But I only start moving to prepare myself at 8.20AM. Every time before I leave the house, I need not worry of leaving stuffs behind as my mom and grandma will do a check on me.
My grandma will ask me if I forgot my drinking water and lunch box. My mom will remembered me of my wallet, phone and swimming trunk. It is so nice to have people reminding you.

And I start my journey ahead and contribute to the traffic jam knowing that I will be late to class. As always =)

24 Hours Movie Marathon

Yes, I did that 24 Hours of Movie Marathon. It is an event held by

I get to knew this event from Jun Yen and without hesitation we pull along few buddies and rush to Ikano Power Centre to register ourselves.

Why we so eager to do this ? As quoted from YC, "Uni Life is about doing crazy thing".

And I am so agree. There was once I saw a short video shared in FB. It is a short video showing slides of photo about University Life by one of the China's University. To be honest, I am envy of their life. They seem to do so much of crazy stuffs during their uni life. Most of uni friends here were quite passive and prefer life that doesn't divert much from their usual routine. Doing extraordinary activities such as men dressing like girls and walk around campus or sneak into faculty and start tossing toilet paper around the main lecture hall are seriously unacceptable.

But of course, I am not dare enough either to do such thing if I will be doing it alone. So, watching a movie 24H and standing a chance to win a 32 Inch television is a very interesting stuffs to do.

None of us had ever done this before. But we are going to have our very first try.

And we come here prepared.  At first, we thought that we will be sitting on cushioned chair whole day in cinema watching movies. But it turn out we will be sitting on a hard plastic chairs and watching past old buster movies on 42 inch television in a small confined room.

Oh mai...

But we come prepared.

I brought 3 bottles of Red Bull and 2 bottle of Chicken Essences which I believe can help me to stay awake. I purposely wore a sleeveless shirt in order to force myself awake by shivering in cold.

But soon, it proof that it need more than that.

The rules were like this, 

1. If your focus is out from the screen (playing phone, talking with friends, staring at ceiling, etc) and after a silent count of 5, you are out of game.

2. You got a 15minutes break for every end of movie.

3. At the end of the last movies, remaining survivors will be test on Q&A session and whoever get the highest points won !
Simple and straight forward rules for a tough game.

And below are the list of movies we watch.

1. Iron Man 2
2. Morning Glory
3. Star Trek
4. I forget
5. Despicable me
6. Wolfman
7. Megamind
8. Wanted
9.  I Forget
10.  I Forget
11. Star Trek

At first, I thought that 15 minutes of break within each movies are more than enough. But later on, it is so hellish never enough. Just walking to and back from toilet already took 8minutes and the remaining 7 minutes are used to nap, rush to nearest store for junk foods/ meals or stretching around.

For the first few movies, my momentum was still strong until I bump into first Star Trek movie. 

Nightmare !!! Dead Boring !!! Help.....

My nicely build momentum put into full stop and I have to bottom-up the first Red-bull. And the marathon goes on.

The hardest part is at 4-7AM where my eyes were so heavy. I have to stand to watch the movies. By that time, half of the participants were either kicked out or give up. 

Ikano Power Centre had totally closed after 12am. And left us in the silent building.

Haha, It use to be my imagination to stay inside a big shopping complex and stuffed myself with foods from supermarket and playing toys at will from any stalls. Hmm, for this case, I forget that there are guards watching us and not to mention that CCTVs are around ><

Long story short, 5 of us survived ! The clock at 12pm Sat - 12pm Sun. And we braced ourselves to endure the last movie of the competition, which is another Fucking Star Trek. 

Out of 30+ participants, 15 left.

They are asking deep questions about the movie we watched ! We had struggled so hard to stay awake and now we required to remember things from the movies ?

We thought it is hard, but not for those movies fanatic around us. We are so surprise that those leftover survivors could actually answer those questions like they have been watching for hundred times.

4 of us get kicked out and left Jun Yen fighting for the big TV. But as expected, he is not fanatic enough and only get a consolation prize. Haha, but he is better than us la who only get a goodies bag as a token of appreciation.

And to be exact, I have been awake for 30 hours before finally get to faint on my bed. 24 hours movie marathon is hurting myself mentally but I have fun ! Though the movies, chairs and only one meal provided, but I am not regretting this because this is a Uni Life. Doing crazy things with friends without thinking too much on the self-benefits.

Mid Valley Pet Fair 2011

It sucks.

After such a long time since I do shooting, I have been looking forward for this event. I imagining pets like dog, cat, iguana and other exquisite pet would be display over there like car show model. And they were actually charging us for entrance fees.

RM 5 for adult, and RM2 for kid.

Well, I am ok with it as I am expecting a good time photo-snapping action inside. But it turn out to be a real disappointing moment.

Where is the fancy dogs, cats, iguana, pony bla bla bla ???? All I see is stuffs... pet's food, toys, shampoo and junks. It is totally different from what I have been imagining.

Well, there do have pets. But in Cage !

The best that they can offer is pathetic puppies and kitten kept in small cage with a hefty price tag. I do not see happy face of those pet which smash my mood to take photos.

Every photos are looking sad.

And more pet's food on the way.

And the only happy pets are those pet that brought by walk-in visitor.

They get loved and treated better than human being lolx. And their photos were so hard to snap as they were so agitated. In-door lighting was poor which result in low shutter speed and high-ISO. Most of the photo were either blurry or very noisy.

They do have some event going on. A dog competition I guess. Whereas it is a competition to see whose dog get trained better.

At first, I thought at least there are something to ease my regretness over the entrance fees. But it turn out to be a really boring event. Only 4-5 participants involved. And the challenges were plain simple like jumping over the low barrier and etc.

I get bored as my lens cant zoom that close to take a good photo, and continue wandering. Though it is a shitty event but people were crowding in. Maybe there are just like me, get cheated first time.

Apparently they have a section for pet adopting. And to my surprise have good species of dogs ready for adoption. But, most of em if not all are female. Well, truth is harsh.... most of people prefer male than female.

There is one black dog who catch my attention. A female black dog that is very active and responding. I can see that she can be easily trained. Argh ! how I wish to adopt her. Hey, for anyone who wishes a dog, this can be a real good choice. Rush to Mid Valley now !!!

After that, We got out from there feeling sorry for our RM5 and headed for lunch @ Noodle Station.

Dry Noodle with Black Pepper Drumstick @RM8.60, Iced Lemon Tea @RM3.60 and French Fries @RM3.80.

The noodle is nothing to brag about but the black pepper drumstick is quite good. And the french fries is tasty as well.

My kind sister treated us a dozen of Big Apple.

Gotta try the IceBerg. It is goood !
