Thoughts of 2010

I know it's not 31st of December yet!!!
But I'm afraid I'll miss it
(maybe going somewhere else...just maybe...)
Therefore, I would like to record some useful thoughts I obtained this year.

1. Life is never hard till you said so
After departing to Australia, I start to REALLY feel the stuffs that need to be paid attention to in our daily lives. It's totally different from the time when I was still in KBU or anywhere else in Malaysia. It's really tiring and of course the reward is never disappointing (not to mention the disappointments we had before the reward XD ). Even for something like eventually found a place to really 'TUMPANG' , is very rewarding. (I know you all won't get it >_< ) Anyway..... I still remember the time we got a house, yes... a 'HOUSE'. At first, I don't really feel it. But when I heard my housemates' weeping in the silence, when they're praying during the first evening we got our house...... DAMN!! I just can't hold it........
haha..... nevermind, once in a while. (o_O) I just can't forget the process of getting the house.
感恩·惜福 (o^~^o)

2. Don't let your religion tie you
Please, I'm not trying to spread any propaganda or asking everybody to be free thinker. I have a religion as well, okay~ Just that, I've talked to many people and some are strong in their own religions and some are free thinkers. What I can conclude is, you can be a free thinker if you think that your life is complete without any guide. But that doesn't mean free thinker is no good. Both, being religious and free thinker has good and bad, just the way you see it and live it.

3. Never ever stereotype anything
Stereotyping is never a good thing, no matter you're thinking in a good way or the opposite. The moment you start stereotyping others, you'll either end up stereotyping even more and eventually feel disappointed with it, or you'll straight away eat the shit out of it. Staying neutral is never a bad thing to do if you're not sure.

4. Smile, no matter what happend
Smile is really a useful tool in life. I remember smiling to a local couple (I mean Tasmanian people) during a exhibition in the city which I was alone at that time. Surprisingly, we ended up chatting for the next 20 minutes..... haha..... not a bad day at all. =D I think I can say "You'll never know who's going to fall in love with your smiles"

5. Stock up more on banana and chocolate
You will never know when you will feel depressed or demotivated. So, it's best to have them on the shelf all the time. XD Even if you're not depressed you can always grab one and eat! Banana can make your shit slip out smoothly like it never does, and chocolate..... erm....erm......hmm....
it makes you FAT and HAPPY!!! =D

Happy New Year to all!

First time ...

First time celebrating Christmas overseas with a local family.... what can I say....
hmmm.... Nothing more but a decent
It's not a Christmas dinner, but it's a lunch on Christmas day. There're nine of us, the father, mother, 2 sons, Gran (granny in short), the uncle, the aunt , little cousin and me. It's my first time ever being invited to a local's gathering, not to mention my first time experiencing X'mas in Aussie. The feeling was awesome! =D

The photo is blur..... haha
From left: the mother, Gran and me in the kitchen

Rudolf, the red nose raindeer by Robbie

The angel barbie and Christmas ghost (I think) haha...
all done by Alex

The 2 photos above are some of the interesting deco I found on the Christmas tree. They may looked silly to most people, but, they hold great sentimental values respectively. They're mostly done by the two sons- Alex and Robbie (who are already 18 and 16), according to their Mum. It reminded me of my Mum as well.... =') My brother and I used to attend drawing classes when we were very young, and my Mum keep all our drawings... yes.... all of them, including those which are fugly as well. =D Sometimes, things don't need to be beautiful to be beautiful, got me?

Oh ya! I even got a prezzie! XD
(T___T) *touched*

Even though it's just a simple gathering, but I do learn many things from it.
Love you all and may the Frost family will always be showered with joy and love.

Merry X'mas again everyone!

Christmas looo!

It has been some time since I last updated about my recent life.
It's officially summer few days ago!

(I don't know why, I love only and only summer)
\(^____^ lll)/
the feeling of being able to sweat is so nice! haha... weird huh?

Life during holiday is much more compact, busier and more tiring. But it's a good thing to be continuously tiring =] Nothing much but the work at the farm, attended my seniors' graduation and fishing.

I'm sure those in Malaysia are wondering about Christmas in Tassie. Nothing really special, no white Christmas. XD But I do noticed something special about the 尾牙(in Mandarin) a.k.a lunch session held by companies to thank the employees, at the same time, kick off the Christmasy mood to the MAX! At the afternoon on Christmas eve, you will see all the restaurants in the cities crowded with employers and employees. Sure not a common sight in Malaysia.

On Christmas day, I'm going off to a local family for a lunch gathering. Hope everything is fine! First time Christmas in overseas!

Merry Christmas to all who celebrates it and HO HO HO!
Don't forget to hang up your socks beside the hearth! Who knows, right?

Sing along with me...

Life as a farm worker has already started 2 weeks ago and nothing special about the job, just some apple thinning (which means getting rid of the small apples on the tree and reduce the competition among apples, so that the average and big apples can grow bigger in a shorter period)

The farm is located around 25 minutes drive away from the place I currently staying. It's not really that far, especially when you use the highway.

Hmm.... lets talk about the workers in the farm then. There are around 40 workers in the farm and mostly are locals. We are generally paired up with some one else in the work, so that we can speed up the work progress. There're quite a number of trueblood Aussies, a French, a few Kenyans, some Africans, 2 Malaysians and a Korean.

For the first few days, I had no partner (due to the total odd number of people in our group). When people were moving a head, fast; I was left far far behind..... certainly don't like that kind of feeling, alone in a farm and left to work on your own. =<

Luckily, a few newbies came, and I was paired up with the Korean guy. His name is Seung Huan or normally known as Chuck. He looked like 21 the most, but is actually 26. And he said he thought that I'm at least 26, or more than that. haha.... I think I do need some extra dose of botox and 24/7 using SK II. XD

The funny thing is he learnt Mandarin in his Uni and had a Chinese girl friend. haha.... and he told me "Faster go and find yourself a sexy hot babe before they're all grabbed up!"
(-_____= llll) haha..... what can I say? "sure~" XP

We did something unusual in the farm today.... F*** those who have dirty minds. haha...
We actually sang in the farm.... Just imagine, a piece of land with two ends vanishing in distance that can't be seen... and two asians are singing. So what did we actually sing?

Due to language inefficiency, we had a pretty limited song list.
Song list:
-《对面的女孩看过来》 (he started it first.... haha...and the pronunciation is not bad though)
-《Gee》 he said no Korean guys are not crazy with Girl Generation... I agree...hahak!
-《Selamat Hari Jadi》and Korean version of 《Happy Birthday》
and the playlist just repeat for the whole day... haha
*I almost sang 《Negaraku》 and ask him to sing Korea's national anthem. XD

Cloudless sky
Scorching sun
Towering trees
Boring job
another day!

Bargain Hunters




The word 'shopping' is always said to be women's nature.


Happy?? SHOPPING (again?)

Frustrated? SHOPPING!!

Conclusion: SHOP Till You Drop XD

In Tassie, I found myself started to love that too.


It totally different from the shopping that girls do, kay~
My territory only lies within GARAGE SALE.
It's a sale normally held at the garage or just outside of the house.
You can find a range of useful and dirt cheap stuffs, for example furniture, kitchen equipments, guitars, shoes, sandals, hats, computer, piano, sewing machines, machine used to cut tiles, goldfish bowl, table lamp, BBQ pit, futsal table, make up, bed, mattress, exercise machines, dictionaries, drawing paper, photo frames, clocks, lawn mower, wallets, TVs, microwave, toaster, wok, dictionaries, toys, X-box, PS, fishing rod, tents, trampoline, i-phone, fans, crayons, monster motorbike, cars, helicopters, jackets, speed boats, door knobs, clothes hanger, cutlery, camera, speakers, undies, boots, slippers, washing machines, fridge..... end less.... they're simply endless.

However, it all depends on luck. Sometimes, you will come across lots of bric-a-bracs, which is normally useless.. haha... I think antique collectors would find it interesting. XD

I somehow feel like playing amazing race. It's very common for the locals to go to garage sale during weekend. We normally start hunting at around 8 am, and there're normally 1 driver and 1 map reader.... haha... like in the car race. It's a good way to explore the surroundings as you might find yourself lost somewhere and some how manage to come out of it.

Definitely go again next week.... it's almost christmas and people are buying new stuffs while the old need to go .... and lucky to the hunters.

The fruit thinning job started from yesterday and goes on for around 4-5 weeks.
For my first day, the weather was fine, even though it drizzled, stopped, drizzled, stopped, drizzled again, stopped again.... and repeated like for more than 10 times. XD

Had a tired day.... but okay laaa =)

Goodye everybody!

It's been almost half a year since I moved into my current house. Fast huh?
This post, obviously, is going to be about my fellow neighbours.

On my left is a blonde woman (probably in her thirties). I've never really talk to her yet, the most is just "Hi! .... Bye!" (=_____= lll)
But, what I noticed is that she owns a female Golden retriever. The height of the fence between my house and her house is not really high. Whenever I'm free, I will go to the fence and call her golden retriever..... and it will come and lean against the fence. Then, I would spend my whole morning petting on its back. Even though my mum used to rear 16 cats, I still prefer dogs as company. They're loyal, loyal, and loyal, unlike cats who adapt to new owners in just seconds.

I miss my pets X(

On the right of my house live a lovely old couple - Mr and Mrs Duke. They lived by themselves and their daily routine is go to the market (supermarket) and gardening, an easy and slow pace life. By the way, Mr Duke owns a garage filled with all the basic gardening tools and some cutting machines. When the grass in my house touches my eyebrows, I always ask for the help of his grass trimming machines.

My housemate always jokes that he actually is a psychotic serial killer.... like what you saw in "The Saw" XD This is because he's always busy sawing something in his workshop and it sounds like somebody sawing human bones or something that is hard.

Across the road is a family migrated from Bhudan. I always see the grandparents walking around Launceston, and I think I've met them more than 10 times in a same supermarket. They obtained their Permanent Residence status 2 years ago, and now the whole family is here and they now owned two houses at the corner of the road.

hmmm..... just as a record.

Random.... random...

Few days ago, I switched on the TV, and jumped from channel to channel.... suddenly, I heard somebody's talking in Mandarin and Malaysian HOKKIEN some more!!!
At that point, my instinct told me to stop and stare.....

ohhh.... it's the movie "20, 30, 40". For those don't know about this, it's actually a Mandarin movie which revolves around the life of three women, who are at the different stage of their life.

李心洁, a 20 year old Malaysian Chinese girl who found herself caught between her dream and the reality. Her parents asked her to find a mundane, monotonous job which offers a stable income. However, she insisted to venture to Taiwan, a country which she believes she will find her stardom. That's the final straw of her dream
However, things are not that simple... (=_=)
My comment on this character : 梦想与现实是能共存的,你确定吗?

刘若英,an air-stewardess in her early thirties and still single. She has no confidence in men and relationship. However, she still try her best to find her Mr. Right... ... a middle-age doctor who is other's husband at the same time? or a young artist who has an unstable career, but still single?
My comment on this character : 如果你相信,你就得耐心等待

张艾嘉, with a '4' hanging infront of her age, she owned a happy family and her own flower shop. However, her marriage ended with a shocking discovery of a third party...... A woman with a heart broken.... what's the remedy?
My comment on this character : 天底下最可悲的人是抛弃自己的自己

Actually, I noticed this movie long time ago (it's produced in 2004, which means I'm already in secondary school), just that I thought it is another brainless movie, with tonnes of women flaunting their gigantic boobs and exaggerated body figures in front of innocent viewers. However, I found this movie rather tauntingly meaningful and made me think a lot.

Someone told me before :
"You'll have different opinions on your previous act, especially when you viewed it after some years, when you are more grown-up and tasted more of your LIFE"

currently enjoying 《把悲伤留给自己》

call me part time fisherman

My Uni holidays have commenced since last Friday and even though I got myself 2 casual work, life still seemed to be pretty empty and soul-less. hmm... perhaps going to find more jobs ($~$)

Besides eating, sleeping, breathing, shitting and working, life without Uni would be
FISHING!!! (you've no other choice in Tasmania)
and today, I went fishing again with some friends.
The special thing about this fishing trip is that an old 'pak cik' joint us this time. If not mistaken he's someone's father, and grandfather of 20+ grandchildren. bahagia nyer~~

nothing special actually, just that he reminded me of my grandfathers when I helped him to change his fishing line (because they get tangled up too often and I suggest him to change the whole line)

我就在淡水河的 旁边
我看着太阳 慢慢不见

方言 a.k.a. local dialect. I still remember we used to have poster drawing competition with the topic "多讲华语,少讲方言” when we were in primary school.
(if in Malay, I think it would be "Berjinak-jinak dengan Bahasa Baku, Mengelakkan loghat masing-masing" I'm not sure the translation is correct or not) XD

But, after listening to a programme by a Mandarin radio station in Malaysia which discuss mainly about the essentiality of local dialects and their roles in present and future society,


The DJ asked a very impactive question :
"Does local dialect really posses the reason/s to be kept alive?
Or just plainly a way to preserve some particular cultural heritages?
Does it play any significant roles in the economical point of view,
like how English and Mandarin being encouraged nowadays?"

The answer is very simple : "There's no answer to this"

Even though people may say local dialects work really well in tying the local communities together, they might as well forgotten that dialects not only created a language barrier among that particular groups of people, but also those who don't understand it.
You might say : "We still have the main languages"
But, do you think a group of people will really be able to communicate freely and stress-less when there're groups who're whispering around in their own dialects while others are talking in the main languages?
Don't you feel kind of awkward when you're in a group of people who speak language that you barely understand?

I used to struggle in that situation when I first went to KL, when English is spoken throughout the place. From my comfort 100%-MANDARIN-based kindergarten, primary & secondary schools, I forced my self to converse more in English.
From never-more-than-5minutes to around-5minutes, 10 minutes, half and hour and so on... ... till today! =) and

I've met somebody who yelled

"BASTARD! Can't you just talk in English, which all of us could understand?!"

at me when I talked to my friend in Mandarin when we're in a group of "rojak" (black, brown, yellow, pink, blue, green.... you name it, you got it) haha... I felt really furious and embarrassed when he harassed me at that time. But, I'm really glad that he did that and I didn't reconcile and mess up the whole thing. XD

recently, I like to dig up some of the old songs which I used to like
but don't really understand in the past.
It's fun to view it from other perspectives XD


random.... random .... and more randomness coming up!
because it's HOLIDAY!!!

p/s: "Trick or treat? treat? Come'on! Trick laaa... haha"

"Just calm down a moment," says the operator. "Is this her first baby?"

With the up coming history & theory in Design test, my first year as a Uni student is going to be called an end. fast... so fast.... DAMN DAMN FAST!

Still remember how we used to struggle during PTS, UPSR, PMR, SPM and the interview that change my life...... later, the matriculation studies.... till now.

Time's walking on a kitty's legs .... =l

I think I should identify the differences between the education in Malaysia and Aussie.
Or should I say 'before-Uni' versus 'during-Uni'

In Malaysia, the first thing that the teachers/lecturers will say during the first class is
-how much you need to cover
-how difficult it's going to be, to cover all of them
-how pathetic you will end up if you miss the class.
-how ridiculous you may get if you didn't keep a consistent work
-how horrible you'll end up if you fail this and that, that and that, and that and THAT!

In Tassie/Uni, you'll hear lots of things except those mentioned above. It's simply more to the Happy-go-lucky and self-directed type.
In Malaysia, lecturer will warn you : "Happy? Lucky? GO DIE LAAAh!" XD (kidding...)

I've no idea why I wrote this post.... haha


Oh ya! BTW, I just went to an Indian Restaurant for trial a.k.a probation, as a kitchen hand (that's what they call) I would call it dish washer and minor preparation work. It's better than facing the pan & wok, which is sizzling hot.
About the pay? $40 for one night (7pm-10pm~11pm)

I told the manager I will ring them up if I decided to stay ... who knows?

Done our final project, which requireS us to build something functional in reality.....

My personal reflection on this project:
- Open your eyes when you're choosing a group (O_O)
- Just do whatever you think is necessary
- It's better to work like a horse and sweat like a pig,
rather than letting the whole boat sinks (but there'll be no next time)
- it may appear unimpressive to you, but when it actually functions, you will get something more than SATISFACTION XD
- eat less salt (to control your blood pressure when dealing with 'always-changing' situation )
- eat more banana and chocolate (they bring you happiness and supply you with energy when you're F-ucked up with all the F-ucking things XS
- Architecture doesn't mean insufficient sleep, it means very-effective time management.
- Don't think, just simply think will carry you NO WHERE!!
Lastly, put faith in yourself.

Lips on the tulips....( ^ )3

Life as a student can never just revolves around books and assignments,
and for students in UTAS, you have only 3 choices : Uni, Home or Nature. I would prefer Nature though.....if I have the monneyh!
It has been weeks since my last outdoor activities (the previous post).

This time, it's about a trip to the tulip festival 2010. Again~ it's an event organized by the Singapore Student Association (SSA). It's spring now and pretty girls flowers are everywhere, and it rains more frequent. About the trip.... ...

We departed from Lounnie at around 9am.
Along the journey, it's not hard to be amazed by all the flowers. Even bushes that seemed like "non-flowering" were busy blossoming besides the highway. Pity those flowering plants in Malaysia..... bukan saja badan kecik, malah bunga lagi kecik macam nak mampus XD

In Tasmania, it's hard to find normal bikes on the road. You can only see cars, huge trucks and super bikes, and the trucks are like those in Transformers (o__O)

The journey to the festival took us around 2 and a half hours. It's located at the North of Tassie, a place called Wynyard (first introduced by my uncle) and the tulip farm is located at a cape called 'Table Cape".

The journey was rather time consuming and butt-flattening.
However, when you see the water front, you are not far from the destination... ...

Walking to the festival... and it's already tulips everywhere!!!
(Adrenaline shoot up immediately!)

Minutes later, we reached the Farmers' Market, where the locals sold some local snacks and crafts, with some performances by the local artists.

"Why there're only knights walking around? Where's my princess?" l(>_<)/

erbs..... I'm not that desperate till getting one who is so tall.....
GOsh~ girls are hard to find nowadays, especially good one
(no offence girls, don't be so sensitive kay? Or I haven't met you?) XD

Mother & Daughter: Can you hold our hands?
Me : 对不起。。。我听不懂英文..但我看过"The Ring" XP

Since it's a sunny day (yes.... supper SUNNY!!I should have wore my shorts),
I bought myself a mixed berry ice-cream. Yum~Yum!

The German Shepherd is so NICE!!! I felt like riding on it!!!

Be careful....when I'm boring, I stalk on others... including you.
BTW, don't you feel like the couple somehow completed the whole picture?
Blue azure sky with the gentle breeze....
sea with moderate waves hitting against the barrier...
Sea gull skidding along the clouds... shoo-weet!

When people are in pairs....
Few Many unfortunate ones are still on the wait
(me too~sad...but LONG LIFE TO the SINGLEs! 单身万岁!haha... this is what you say when you're still single)

When the guys were busy throwing their attention on HOT CHICKs and girls drooling on the handsome+muscular hunks who walked pass hours ago, the kids were caught in the "Tulips throw-away" competition. Winner will get a tray of tulips XP

My friend: 吃饱没事做?haha...

Since I'm not good in girls-fishing nor tulips-throwing, better get my self some thing more realistic. FOOD!!! We live to eat, not eat to live!!
I found my self attracted to a stall selling scallop pies.

When I asked the scallop pie seller what's inside, he said "scallops!" (with a smile on her face)
Me :"... ...ABO?" (totally blank) (=___+)

The I asked again what ELSE is inside the pie besides the scallops, she replied "the filling"

Me: "... ..." (this time I'm TOTALLY JAMMED!!..haha)
But I still ended up buying it...haha

After spending another one and a half hour at the market, we headed towards the
TULIP FARM!!! It took us another 15 minutes to reach the farm.
From far.... it's like "Anneh nia?" ('just like' that in Hokkien)
Brother, don't judge a farm by it's gate size.

But when you get nearer, you'll absolutely loose your breath....... (suffocating....)

and when you figured out there's another piece in a walking distance..... (fainted)

Indulging myself in the sea of tulips.... I wish I could swim around the farm....
ahhhh~ breatstroke, freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, doggiestyle... X))

My companion of the day - Aqil a.k.a Ei-Kill.

Red arr!!! ONG arr!!! HUAT arr!!! haha....

However,I'm totally speechless when I'm found this...

Tulip MASSACRE !!!



Later, the whole troop went to a beach to have our BBQ dinner....
The cape can be viewed clearly from the beach and nothing can defeat the beauty of that. Agree?

While waiting for the BBQ to start, I explored the beach which was in the state of low tide.


ARRRRrrhhhh!!! The dinner still haven't started after we have strayed around the beach for more than half an hour.... That's when the devil came in X)

Aqil :"Song, jom naik helicopter!"
Song: "WHAT? "
Aqil :"I said H-E-L-I-C-O-P-T-E-R! Pandai!"
Song :" Crazy~ I dah pokai laah... But nevermind, I watch you when you naik"
Aqil :"OK!"
Without noticing (I'm innocent, okay?) , I paid the money and there we go.... haha
For your information, my wallet went totally flat after that.

me and the pilot!

God~ it's worse than playing the flight simulation !!

When we were in the air, I didn't notice that the microphone is actually fucntioning.... and I keep
"Wahhh....... Wahh....Wow...Wow....Walau.....Walau... (trying to suck in more oxygen)..... Amboi..... Amboi....." *repeated at least 20 times*

Those are the only things I said throughout the whole 10 minute flight.... and my friend asked me "Do you know the microphone is switched on throughout the whole trip?"

ALAMAK... haha... paiseh~paiseh
After the helicopter ride, we went back to the beach and continue my
'Sea-RA the adventurer'

Hi Crabby Baby!
It looked like cockroach, don't you think so?

After the BBQ, we waited for the fire works before calling it a day.
Tonight Showing: "One night stand of TOMATO sauce and BBQ sauce" (18sx)
(sorry... too boring at that time)

Thanks to the fire works, I managed to crawl onto my bed around 12am.

I actually bought some souvenirs from the farmers' market.... just some stones XD

It's a wonderful trip after all....
1st time seeing such an enormous wave of tulips
1st time touching them
1st time on an actual helicopter


second time being wished "KONICHIWA!!"
(infront of me)
looked like I better learn some Harajuku girls' language.

Cheers everybody!
