What's the meaning of Merdeka to you?

 For the past 2 years, I have participated in directing 2 sketch performance for our MSA annual event - Merdeka Night. Really enjoying gathering with more than 30 friends, filming all those short clips, rehearsing for the performance and together we showed our cares and loves towards the country.

So fast 1 year has passed and now I am considered alumni for MSA already. After the last production for CNY this year, all of us have been very busy with our careers and accommodation matters. There is no time and opportunity for us to produce another production anymore. Let's just keep this as memories and I also hope that for those who were involved in these 2 years will remember it forever. =)

For the Merdeka this year, it's just another working day for me. Racism continues, lies and those funny jokes which will only happen in our country spread all over the world. I am still waiting for miracle, though most of the people already accepted that the chances are diminishing. Hopefully by the time I go back, everything will be fine, just like how it used to be 53 years ago.

Happy Birthday Malaysia.

Not to forget, our 相识纪念日 on the 29th Aug 2009. =)

Hello, it's not a scam !

It's my honor to be featured in the Alumni Giving after working in the phone room for 2 years.
This is the first time (probably the only time) I was featured in newsletter, this year together we achieved more than 70% of the participation rate, which is almost doubled the result of last year.

Friends told me that they saw me on the newsletter, some even introduced to their parents that I am their friend. Callers in the phone room paste the article on the notice board in phone room and start calling me the unsung hero.

Thanks for everyone in the phone room, the supervisors, the callers, the manager and the special "pretty young boss". Really miss those time that we spent together in phone room, calling up the alumnus and final year students, trying to get more pledges to help more students ...

Officially A Graduate

The last day for me being a student...
The first time I feel that I am a more important person, because parents came all the way to Singapore, sister took afternoon flight on that day and she took a day off from her part time to attend my convocation.

During my 4 years of studies, I was absent most of the time. So actually I don't have much feeling on this day. I know less than half of the people in my course and I believe less than quarter of them actually know about me. End up the whole day I sticked with my parents, took photos with them and whoever that I met.

Took pic before putting my gown
Like father Like son
Choon Cheah working as usher
Purposely gave Jocelyn a call once I reach there because I requested her to pin up the "igave" pin for me.

Pretty boss
Sis arrived just on time before I went into the convocation hall.

Boon Ming had his convocation 1 session earlier than me
The whole convocation last for 2 hours and finally I got my transcript !!

Graduated !!
Also received a special gift from her..with my name on it !!
Let's welcome BuBu ~~
And now I am officially a graduate !!

Homeland 国家

In conjunction with the National Day of Singapore, all the shops are trying to boost their sales by having all kinds of promotions. On this day that is worth celebrating for all the Singaporeans, I saw this at the entrance of a Chinese cuisine restaurant. The word 国家, which means "homeland" is written on the advertisement board.

When there is harmony in the home there is peace in the land
I hardly agree the description above because I believe that the real situation should be the other way round. “国家, 国家……有国才有家”,When there is harmony in the land there is peace in the home.

It's just like asking the question "Does egg exist before chicken?". What do you think?

My first Nuffnang Cheque

After being "actively" blogging for more than one and a half year, finally I received my 1st Nuffnang Cheque this week.

I always remind myself not to blog to earn and remain this blog as a personal diary, update about my personal life while sharing specials things that happened around me. Perhaps that's the reason why I earned so few through this blog because I won't purposely blog and I believe I don't have any reader who is interested in my blog.

But well, since now I am working full time already, it will be even more difficult for me to update my blog as frequent as before. Just treat all the money that I've earned from this blog as some little pocket money and hopefully I will be able to earn more before my next cash out. Thanks to my friends who always inspire me and motivate me to blog.
