Completed the Twilight Saga

Finished reading the last book, Breaking Dawn last night. Happy ending. Somehow, I don't want it to end. There were still some things which I think Stephanie Meyer wants us, the readers, to imagine ourselves. Like not that Bella doesn't age, what will Charlie's reaction be? Or Renesmee when she grows up, what will she be like? What about the Volturi? How long will they rule? etc. etc.

Overall, I find the first book, Twilight the best, followed by the 4th book, Breaking Dawn. Something seems missing from New Moon, I can't put my finger on it however, I find it emotional. Eclipse was OK.

I know most people like Edward but I prefer Carlisle.

Can't wait to watch New Moon at the end of the year. Watch the trailer on

Going to read some of my friends' blog and then continue calculating financial ratios for Finance assignment.

Happy Halloween, have fun!

Nokia N97 mini

I saw the advertisement for Nokia N97 mini on my blog and decided to click on it to check it out. The only thing I could not find is the price which is the most important factor for me when it comes to not only buying a phone but to everything and anything.

One thing I like the Nokia N97 mini is that it has everything I want in a phone and then some. It is cool, isn't it? I would prefer a smaller phone compared to a bigger phone because firstly, I'm a woman. I don't find it womanly carrying around a big phone. Furthermore, I don't like oversized things like oversized bags, oversized wallets however, I prefer oversized sunglasses, better sun protection.

Ok, enough talk about something I can't afford right now. To check out the Nokia N97 mini visit: How I wish I have an oversized bank account.

Got to go back to analyzing financial reports for my finance assignment.

I'm never gonna do this

After reading Beyond Ugly by Constance Briscoe, I'm never going to do cosmetic surgery, ever. Unless I'm involve in an accident or something which requires me to have one.

Her detailed description of the surgery is so, well, makes me want to say "yuck!". And yes, it sounds painful. I have also read articles in magazines in the past on cosmetic surgery gone wrong, and the patient had to suffer blood infection, which kills.

The conclusion is, cosmetic surgery to me is costly and risky.

Never going under the knife

Do I really look so young?

I was walking out of the LRT station when one of those salespeople approach me, she ask me if I was in Form 4 or 5. I told her neither, I'm in college. She didn't believe me and said that I'm cute. I really don't like people mistaking me for looking younger than my real age, not at this age. But there's nothing I can do about it, all those creams and what not sold in the market are for anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anything that can make us look younger. There's nothing to makes us look older. At least, I haven't come across any yet.

I do want to look older at this age, look mature. That's why I put on make-up sometimes, so I don't look so much like a teen when I'm not. Maybe there are good things about looking young. I don't need to worry so much about looking old, at least no one ever mistaken me for looking like I'm twice my real age. And other reasons like being the one who is being look after not the one who has to look after someone.

OK, back to the salesperson in the LRT, actually she wants to sell me a product which cost around RM15 or RM35, depending on which product. So I told her that I didn't bring any money to college because I only plan to attend classes and go straight home, not planning to spend any money. So I don't have a single cent with me. It's kind of true, I have gone to college without any money before, usually if I only have classes in the morning and will have my lunch at home.

Speaking of looking after, it reminds me of the song by The Fray "Look After You". (

Will you look after me?

Horrible result

I took this Cyber Crimes Quiz on Discovery Tech which is part of Discovery Channel online.

Guess what my results was?

0-3: Horrible
Do you even own a computer? You should DEFINITELY put your credit card on ice, and then click on the "Take this Quiz Again" link below.

Uh-oh, I guess this means that I need to start reading news on cyber crime. Ignorance is not a bliss in this case, look where it got me. And yes, I'm not going to do buy anything online until my result on the Cyber Crimes quiz improves.

Romantic love song

I'm adding Longer by Dan Fogelberg to my list of love songs. It's so romantic and the music is perfect as in it suits the song. I sometimes feel that this is God's love song to me. Would be romantic if my future lover serenade this song to me.

Your Road Map for Success

I used to wonder what is success? I thought it was about accomplishing something, but I was wrong. I found the answer in the book, Your Road Map for Success by John C. Maxwell. Success is defined in just 3 lines.
Success is...
knowing your purpose in life,
growing to reach your maximum potential, and
sowing seeds that benefit others.
Another thing that stand out while I was reading this book is the code of persistence written by Harold Sherman, author of How to Turn Failure into Success.
  1. I will never give up so long as I know I am right.
  2. I will believe that all things will work out for me if I hang on the end.
  3. I will be courageous and undismayed in the face of poor odds.
  4. I will not permit anyone to intimidate or deter me from my goals.
  5. I will fight to overcome all physical handicaps and setbacks.
  6. I will try again and again and yet again to accomplish what I desire.
  7. I will take new faith and resolution from the knowledge that all successful men and women have had to fight defeat and adversity.
  8. I will never surrender to discouragement or despair no matter what seeming obstacles may confront me.
I had a meeting with the external examiner and someone from CIMA today and one of the things that they said which can help us in our learning is to read a lot. I can't disagree. You'll not only learn more things, your writing skills and thinking skills will also improve greatly.

I love to read,

Camp Rock

Watched Camp Rock last night. The storyline was so-so. But I like some of the songs in the movie. My favourite is "This Is Me" by Demi Lovato. I heard her name a couple of times, at least now I have seen her movie and know how she looks like. The music video is to wide for my blog so I'll just give you the link. I actually prefer the scene where she sang this song while playing the piano.

This Is Me:

Class started today,

Back from camp

Got back from CF camp few hours ago. Got bitten by a leech on the first day of the camp while playing games.

The games and stream-trotting was fun but tiring. My sports shoe's sole came out while stream-trotting and since I brought along only 1 pair so while playing the obstacle course, it was quite uncomfortable. My body is aching now especially my arms and legs and butt (I slipped at the waterfall).

The speaker was really good. His message was really straightforward and I can sense God speaking to me through him in certain areas. It's really a wake up call for me. Let's hope I don't press the snooze button after the camp.

Food was good too. I met many new friends there, and got to know old ones better. One of the session that I like is the "car wash" session, where we had to go up to our group members and say the positive things we see in them. A very encouraging and touching session for me.

I think the theme for this camp is unity and yes, I believe we managed to achieve that in the 4 days and 3 nights.

Had an awesome time at camp and now having problems downloading next semester timetable which starts next week,
