Wrong Priorities

Exams are so near...

My assignments are piling up.....

And what do I do?

I re-read Hunger Games. XD

Yep, I got my priorities right :D I have never bought Hunger Games, the first time I read it, it was from an e-book. I want to buy this book so bad, with the cover depicted above. But unfortunately, all the books I've found have that bitch Stephanie Meyer's name on it  >:(  I don't wanna taint my room with that horrible name!!

Back to schooling matters...

My exam timetable came out. I would have

Biology - 8 June - 9.30am - 12.30pm
Chemistry - 9 June - 9.30am - 12.30pm
Ecological History of Humanity - 14 June - Final Research Essay Submission before 5pm
Informatics - 20 June - 9.30am - 12.30pm

Did I mention that I HATE mornings? (and exams too)

One thing that comforts me somewhat, is that exams are NOT a measure of intelligence, they do not determine how well you will do in life, how successful you will be or how much potential you have in yourself.

Hank Green puts it very well.

 Nerdfighters FTW! DFTBA!!

I gotta get away from school, thinking of this exams matter makes me lose my appetite. Ugh.


It's the French version of Jet Lag. Simple Plan sounds sexier in French XD

And since I haven't bugged you guys about Hetalia in a long time, Here's a Hetalia vid, featuring my 3rd favourite character (Prussia is 1st and UK is 2nd) :


I like Hetalia being depicted like this. It shows that the world we live in now was built on bloodshed.

That and I like seeing Russia being sadistic.

My anger's violent,
But still I'm silent;
When tragedy strikes at home,
I know this decadence, is shared by millions.

Missionettes Testimony and Eurovision Review

Hey, I’m Nicole. I have been attending Missionettes since I was 4 when the Rainbows program just started; it was during that time where I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Missionettes has been a wonderful journey. The weekly lessons have been useful and informative. Not only do we learn about God and the Bible, we were also taught God’s views on girly stuff like cooking and grooming and later, about studies, jobs and dating.

For many years, Missionettes has been my only contact with church. Since my parents only attended the 5pm service, I had to choose between service and Missionettes. Obviously I chose the less boring option! It was only when Missionettes was moved to 2.30 when I started attending the NX service regularly. However, despite not going to regular service, I have come to understand the word of God through regular lessons and how I need to apply it to my daily life. The open environment makes it easier to share and the sponsors were understanding and have instilled the love of God in my heart. I used to think that going to church was just a routine every Sunday, but eventually I looked forward to it each and every week, wondering what new things I would learn.

My proudest moment was in Missionettes when the Girls Only adapted a skit I had written. It really gave me a boost in my confidence in writing. Seeing my fellow classmates perform it on stage in front of an audience was exhilarating especially since it was my first written skit. I thank God for giving me the inspiration and also the courage to show my script to Sponsor Maryann who was supportive and most of all patient since I was a slow writer….

Right now, I’m studying in the University of Melbourne in Australia. It was a last minute decision that was only confirmed 2 months before the term was scheduled to start. Living away from home alone in another country is hard. Being a Malaysian, I miss the food more than I miss the people, especially Nasi Lemak, Roti Canai and Teh Tarik. The culture I can get used to but the food doesn’t feel the same. However, my hunger for God has remained unchanged. I still want to know more.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” This was the scripture verse for the Girls Only Club, I never really understood this verse when I first read it, but now the meaning is very clear. I put God first in everything I do, whether for my studies or my social life. There are times when I feel God has abandoned me, but somehow I know that that’s the time when he’s with me the most, all I have to do is turn to Him. God truly provides for his children.

Being so far away, I am unable to attend Girls Only this year and also I regret that I won’t be graduating from Missionettes with my fellow classmates. I wish all of you the best and I promise I’ll be there for the 35th Celebration.

This thing is one of the main reasons why I haven't posted in ages. This and about a thousand other assignments that I was procrastinating working on. And the worst part is I'm not even done!!! I still got 1 due this week, another due next week and one more 2000 word essay due next month!!!

I finally found something I hate more that exams. ASSIGNMENTS!!!!


And Finals are next month...... Damn.

Let's talk about something else shall we..... EUROVISION!! This year's winner was Azerbaijan. Yes, I know what you're thinking. WHERE THE HECK IS THAT!!?? I don't know either, and I'm too lazy to look it up on Google Maps...

Personally, I don't like this song. I preferred Georgia's One More Day (9th place), Macedonia's Ruskina (Russian Girl,didn't make it past the Semis) and Finland's Da Da Dam (21st place) even though I thought Finland's song didn't really fit in Eurovision.....




Germany, last year's winner, was a HUGE dissapointment. I liked their song "Satellite" last year and felt that they totally deserved the win. But "Taken By A Stranger" was an especially risky song, sure, it was a nice song but try to outshine yourself Lena, she was so mild this year....

Italy got 2nd place this year. That is all. Didn't like their song.

Of the top 5, 3rd placed Sweden definitely my favourite! "Popular" was such a cute song and I can picture 7 year olds singing to this. Also, cause Eric Saade is so @#*%#^*^ cute!

Special mention to 5th place Denmark with their song "A New Tomorrow". This song was really inspirational, sweet and so damn awesome! LOVE IT!!

AND CONGRANTS TO UK FOR NOT GETTING TOP 10 THIS YEAR!!! Seriously, the number of almost wins UK has you would think they would have given up by now XD I admit, I was a Blue fangirl back when they were popular, but the song wasn't that good. True, it had the same inspirational tone like Finland and Denmark, put paled in comparison to the other entries...... sad really.......

 THRONE OF FIRE COMES OUT TODAY!!!!!! (May 3rd in the US, May 4th here)


And I need to finish reading it then returning it to the bookshelf. XD

Dammit, I so want to buy the book but THE COST!!!!

Yes, I've complain about the high price of books everywhere. But if any government wants people to read more they should totally lower the prices of books.


Also, in the Children's Choice Awards recently, Rick Riordan latest book "The Red Pyramid " won best 5-6th Grade book AND he won Author of The Year for "The Lost Hero"!! Congratulation RICK!!!!!

In other news.....


The Jet Lag Music Video will feature Natasha Bedingfield and Marie-Mai, both featured artist of the English and French version of the song respectively .

And more Simple Plan News! Their latest Album is officially titled: "Get Your Heart On!"

From 1 to Awesome: I would rate this TOTALLY AWESOME!!!
So much Simple Plan on the cover XD

I can't wait!!! June 21st needs to come now!!! And they're going on tour EVERYWHERE!!! Fingers crossed they come to Melbourne.

They had a Live Chat Stream today which I missed because of stupid Uni. Grrrr.....

I'm so excited!!! First, Starship, then Kane Chronicles and now Simple Plan!!! I'm having the best week of my life! Oh, and I'm gonna watch the latest episodes of Glee, Fairy Tail and Video Game Reunion tonight too :D


P.S.: Chern Wei, you're a bastard for not knowing who Simple Plan is.

The End


OH YEAH!!!!!!

My last daily post!

I totally enjoyed it though XD I would actually offer to do a daily post for 1 year if it weren't for my exams or the fact that I have a life.

And I'm lazy and want to get back to playing Pokemon while avoiding my studies and assignments.

And the fact I conveniently ran out of things to say.


You know me, I want to have a post with quality each and every time. I usually spend about an hour per post. Minimum. Some post actually take up to 4 hours!

But that includes the time I spent doing something else XD

OK Time to go and kick my assignments ass!!! I'm losing currently but I'm weakening it!!

And play Pokemon.

And re-watch Starship.

Childish Cartoons and Space Bugs

I'm working on my Phillip Island post. It was more work than I thought so I decided to publish it another time. I was planning to work on it yesterday but something else came up. Tell y'all about it at the end.

So, for the time being here is a stupid little post about my favourite cartoons growing up!

PS: Animes aren't cartoons. Ask anyone who has watched hentai and they will tell you the same.

First off:

Winnie the Pooh

Go ahead. Laugh. But I won't change the fact that I used to love it!! Still do actually....

And who wouldn't! It's a bunch of talking stuffed animals!! I really loved all of the characters, they were the right amount of smart and stupid XD I miss this show, the latest WtP cartoons are nothing compared to the old ones, where the gang have REAL adventures and not playing some stupid detective game.

As an adult, however, you can say that Winnie the Pooh was based on psychological problems.

Pooh has an eating disorder, Piglet suffers from anxiety, Eeyore has major depression, Tigger has ADHD, Rabbit has OCD and Christopher Robin must be a drug addict if his stuffed animals talk to him...

Hahahaha!!! I love this show!

Next up,

Pinky and The Brain

Fffffff!!! What do you get when you team a super-intelligent genetically-engineered lab rat with another dim-witted mouse? Hours of hilarity!! I love Brain's harebrained to take over the world every other episode!! And Pinky! He's the perfect dumb blonde!

The Brain: This is the Earth. And this is Pinky. You can tell the difference quite easily. One is a lump of inert matter hurtling blindly through the void. The other is the Earth.

Is it weird that I still remember that quote after all these years? Nah. I'm sad that this show has ended, it ran from 1995 - 2001. But on the other hand, because it has ended, it is saved from "modernization" which will probably ruin the show like Winnie the Pooh.

I M Weasel

Another pairing of smart and stupid XD One of thoe series which I will proudly say that I have watched every single episode! No kidding. Every. Single. One. But it's not like there were a lot and I was a lazy kid.

It stars I M weasel, an internationally recognized genius and I R Baboon, his gramatically-challenged and self-proclaimed rival and occasional partner. And he has a huge red ass.

I. M. Weasel: Look what you've done! Because of you, every lawyer is now floating clear off the face of this planet!
I. R. Baboon: What bad about that?

I still remember that episode, one of my favourites too!

Ren and Stimpy

The world's most fucked up and disgusting cartoon in my opinion. Looking back I don't know why I even like it.

But I do. So much!!!

 I think this cartoon is responsible for my love of violence and gore. Seriously.n I wonder why I found it so funny when I was young. Looking back, I must have been a disturbed kid.

But they can be so cute when they want to. Happy happy joy joy!!!

Final Note.



From left: Brian Holden as Veto Mosquito, Jim Povolo as Sweetheart Mosquita, Jamie Lynn Beatty as Neato mosquito, Brant Cox as Roach and Joey Richter as Bug,

Like duh. It was a fantastic musical with songs written by Darren Fuckin' Criss!!! And it's so original as well. Who else but the great Matt Lang could have written a story about a space bug wanting to be a space human XD

From Top: Lauren Lopaz as Taz and Joe Walker as Commander Up


These two completely stole the show in every scene ! Lauren's spanish accent was epic!! Que pasa! Feliz Navidad!! And Joe as the ball-less Up, no balls but all heart!!!


If you don't know what I'm talking about.......... you suck.

Living Alone

Moving out of the house is hard.

But living alone. BEST THING IN THE WORLD.

I mean really, there is so much more freedom and I don't have to listen to my mum's nags to clean my room. By the way, my room is an utter mess and it doesn't bother me.

But it's not like I'm a complete pig. Only partially. I do vacuum occasionally but my room's mess is now virtually permanent. Clothes, papers everywhere, my bag, shoes, boxes, they're a mess. But it's an organised mess. Ahh, feels like my room back in Malaysia. LOVE!!!

And you cannot imagine the freedom! I go to bed when I want, wake up when I want and no nagging!!! Best thing about living away from home, freedom from nagging.

Also I eat whatever I want, whenever I want. Heck, I had potato chips for dinner once. I don't really miss my mum's cooking. Not that she was bad (except for her godawful porridge, glad I don't have to stomach THAT anymore), but I don't miss is for some reason........

I also notice I eat healthier while I'm in Australia. Back home, there are times when I go days without eating vegetables, but here, I eat vegetables/fruits everyday. My meals are healthier as well. Pasta with olive oil, beef slices and raw lettuce?? I don't remember ever eating that healthy. There are times when I feel my meals are too healthy and add copious amounts of cheese JUST to balance it out.

On the plus side, my jeans feel looser XD
