Kimi ni negai wo

Kimi ni negai wo - Miyavi. Nice song. Like it since the first time I heard it, especially the guitar.

Kimi ni negai wo (English translation)
Even in the dream of that fading day,
even the dusty figure of the future,
because you were always there looking on
even on the most fragile days
even on the road which only detours
I'm getting over it, and am able to exist here even now.

Just what am I lifting, I wonder?
Just what couldn't I lift, I wonder?
Although ever since then I've tried questioning myself,
No matter how many times the door to my heart is knocked on
Even if deep inside my chest my heartstrings are pulled out to look at
all that will come out will only be pleasant memories of fun..
It's simply that, I have always loved you.
That's all, although it's just that,
that was all that was in me.
And even now, I love you unchangingly.

There was a day when in the pretty starry night sky
we lined up to make our wishes
although those wishes have already been forgotten
it would be good if this moment could continue
and we remembered only all the things we thought about.
Now if you think about it, making that wish was good wasn't it?
However, it seems that God isn't here.
At the moment you became a star, I made a vow.
I do not need a God.
You over there, if only you had stayed.

Even today, the town without you
was as its usual rushing, restless self.
It was quite like doing nothing, coming to an end.
With the months and years that trot past
and in the middle of the softly moving seasons,
suddenly I think of going to look up at the night sky.
And then, I quietly made a wish.
A wish upon you who became a star.
「It's alright now, because I can stand by myself」"
But then hey, it's because I'm not alone right?
That's right, I'm living your share too.
You also, have always been living inside me.
That's why, again just like that time
Always be by my side to watch over me

When I wish upon you

left specs at home

I forgot to bring my spectacles to college today. Good thing I didn't have Business Economics, Tamadun or Financial Accounting Practice today. It's just Company Law.

I don't need to look at the board during tutorials while for lectures, what's on the screen is the same as the notes.

I'm still looking for internships, preferably in the accounting field. Anyone have any suggestions where can I apply too?

Best wishes,

results out!

Yesterday, I was worried, even during CG about my exam results that I'll find out today. I predicted that I can't sleep at night, but somehow I did. My CG leader, James, told me not to worry about my results, David added that since the exam is over, I can't do anything about it.

Today, I went to check my results, since a lot students are checking theirs too, so I guess the system had faced a higher traffic than normal so I had to reload a few times.

Finally, the moment I was waiting for. I passed every single subject. Now another tick in my answered prayer list. Praise God!

Separate legal person

"A company is a separate legal person" I don't know how many times my Company Law lecturer repeated this since the first lecture. I lost count. And guess what? For my Company Law assignment I have to analyze this "a company is a separate legal person" thing.

It's not that bad actually. Get resourceful. My notes sucks, I didn't buy the textbook because this subject is for 1 semester and the only time I ever read the textbook is when doing research for assignments which won't be very often.

So, I used the Company Law textbook Bernard gave me and also his notes. Bernard, if you're reading this, thank you so much. Both your textbook and notes helped me a lot in getting information for my assignment. I hope you're enjoying yourself in China and that we can have a conversation in Chinese when you get back.

I need to submit my assignment and present in front of the class by Week 5, which is like the 1st week of November while the rest of the class can submit and present later because I got the first question.

My exam results will be out this Saturday. To all my coursemates, all the best!

CIMA Conference 2008

Was at my college for CIMA Conference 2008 for almost the whole day.

Like usual, it didn't start on time but ended earlier than I expected. The game, was interesting, fun and challenging at the same time. Some of the things I learned in the classroom can be applied.

We had to make paper aeroplanes according to the client/facilitator's specifications. My group did pretty well even though we didn't win the top three prizes. Every member of the group were given positions like engineer, CEO, QC manager... I was Finance Manager.

We had to make the targeted number of aeroplanes within a given time limit and then the Finance manager will calculate the cost and profit.

After games, an ex-Tarcian and soon-to-be CIMA member gave a talk as well as another guy working in Shell.

By the way, the ex-Tarcian is currently working for Shell in Miri. I must visit Miri one day. I have friends there and my friend keeps on asking me to move to Miri. He must have love Miri sooo much that he keeps promoting Miri to me. One way I can save money while travelling is to stay at a friend's place.

I think I'll most probably choose CIMA after I finish my diploma which ends next year, February.

Hope that I'll visit Miri one day,

80% complete

Sometimes when on the way to college, on the LRT, I realized that my MP4 had ran out of battery, so for the whole 45 minutes journey, my mind can play songs on its own. Amazing huh?

My internship application is 80% complete. All that's left to do is:
  1. Find out who am I suppose to address my application to.
  2. Send in my application.
Throughout those times of writing resume and cover letter, my aunt guided me.

Grateful for family members,

Makes me happy!

I heard Leavin' while eating in Canteen 1 today. It makes me happy every time I listen to that song, even though it sounds wrong. By the way, I had a piece of Big Apple doughnut today thanks to Mr I-forgot-how-to-spell-his-name. Bump into Andy and Chris, complained about my company law lecturer. He sucks. He has a good track record of students complaining about him, my name can be added to the list. Help!! I don't want to fail Company Law, not in my final semester.

Anyway, another song that I chill out to is...
Why don't you kiss her also by Jesse Mac.

Jesse McCartney Lyrics
Why Don%27t You Kiss Her? Lyrics

This song is really smooth(that's how Chris described it). Something about Jesse Mac reminds me of someone, I can't put my finger on it. But anyway, forget about that someone already, it's time to move on.

Man, I really do need to relax before I burn out.

Japanese here, Japanese there

I'm currently listening to Japanese songs. X Japan is a really nice band. I don't plan to buy their album yet, because I've already exceeded my budget. At the beginning of every year, I will prepare a budget for my expenses and I try to spend within that budget. This year, I amazingly exceeded that budget and I plan to buy Lee Hom latest album as well and I've been waiting for it to come out ever since I first found out that he's coming out with a new album.

Besides that, I had homemade sushi for lunch made by my sister. I helped out a bit but had to study for Financial Accounting Practice. Man, it's theory, theory, theory.

At least in Business Economics there's still some calculations. I like this subject.

I'm going to buy textbooks later. I usually buy textbooks and read them especially the case studies when I have nothing to do. I'm not the type who can sit around doing nothing.

Last laugh

I'm suffering the same thing as Jonathan.

That is the "no time to blog" syndrome. For the past hours, busy with college stuff. Attending classes, re-typing out notes so that my messy handwriting won't add on the stress when exams are near. Not forgetting preparing for CG's worship this week.Yeah, we do sing songs after icebreaker. Last week was an exception.

Anyway, what's wrong with me? I'm starting to listen to X Japan, a now defunct band (I think), they had disbanded and one of their guitarist committed suicide. I'm also starting to like watching Japanese movies. Preparing for Tamadun Jepun, that I'll be learning about soon, perhaps. Or maybe it's something else.

I reading Bible today, and the comment about that message is about letting go. Something I need to do, something I find hard to do. It's tough to let go of past hurts, disappointments and regrets but it's good to let go.

First Day

Today is the first day of my final semester. Had Company Law lecture today. Didn't know that law lecturer also can tell lame jokes. His jokes are so lame that I forgot to laugh.

Anyway, went I got back home, I wanted to file my notes properly and guess what, I forgot to buy colour paper to use as the cover for my notes and also rings, to bind my notes. I totally forgot about it, must be enjoying my holidays too much and forgotten about college.

I received my student bill today. I to pay RM60 for Award Assessment. What's that? Why RM60? Why not just RM10 or better still RM0? Is it tax-exempt? Anyway, the total of my bill is less than RM300 partly because I'm a scholarship holder, partly also because I'm studying at TARC.

So if you have financial difficulties, study hard for your SPM and get good results and later study at TARC.

Rainy afternoon

It rained for hours today. I stayed inside the house, in front of my computer improving my resume. When I'm done with that, I watched Moon Child.

Most people watched it for Gackt and Hyde. I watch it because of Lee Hom. It's a Japanese movie but Lee Hom spoke Mandarin in the movie. He's really cool. It's an action movie. The fighting part is interesting a bit like Matrix. Even though it's in Japanese, the one I watched had English subtitles. The lines are not 100% Japanese, there's a mix of Mandarin and Cantonese as well.

Lee Hom's song, Last Night, in this movie is nice.

Watch Last Night MV here

A game of badminton

Normally, when my friends ask me out for a game of badminton, I would usually turn down their invitation.You see, I'm not really that good in badminton, I think I'll be picking up the shuttlecock more than hitting it.

Last night, I went to church for cell but only 4 people from my cell turn up so after "icebreaker" we decided to head over to the badminton court to watch the other CG play badminton. In the end, I ended up playing badminton with them until 10pm.

So I played in jeans, barefooted because I was wearing heels. I was also worried that my mascara would run. Amazingly, even though I was sweated a lot, my mascara still didn't run. :). I used Skinfood Chestnut Volume Mascara, so here's one wonder mascara that doesn't run even when you sweat buckets. I'm going to stick to this mascara.

Anyway, back to the game, I played much better than I expected. As in, I managed to hit the shuttlecock more times than I picked it up.

Had fun playing with Noelle, Carmen, Su Shan, Andrew and Adrian and thanks for lending me your badminton racquet!

How have you been lately?

I really like this song when I heard it on the Taiwanese drama series - Dou Niu Yao Bu Yao. I can play it on my guitar already, it's really simple, not too many chords.

S.H.E. - Ni zui jing hai hao ma?
