This is what I believe happened: I took out my UPass and got onto the bus. Then I put it back to my bag. And due to the low quality of my card holder, UPass and UBC Card slipped out on their way into my bag and no one, myself included, realised that they were somewhere on the floor. When I got off bus, walked to my door and reached for my keys, I realised that the card holder is completely empty. A natural conclusion: cards are in the bag. Then I emptied my bag, they were not there. Whoops.

Told mum what happened and what is about to happen: $60 bucks to replace them. Mum said, it’s good that you didn’t lose something more important, and from now on you won’t lose anything until next term.

Kind of true. I do have this lovely habit of losing something each term. First term first year, rez card. Second term second year, credit card. First term second year, keys. Second term second year, bank card. Now it’s UPass and UBC Card’s turn I suppose.

And losing all those things made me realise that once they are gone, they are gone forever, not like when I was in Singapore, the only thing gone forever would be cash, everything else gets returned to me unharmed.

Well well well…off to UBC Carding office tomorrow then. Pat pat and off to eat some fruit.


I am from — a little something from GALA training today

I am from reading poetry and novles

watching clips from Broadway and Westned

from all the memories I have kept

and those that were lost


From endless wheat field and running horses

blue oceans and white beaches

From wiggling tails and paws

bright rainbow and yummy biscuits


I am from seeing Dad designing homes

Mum cooking my favourite stew

From the laughters and tears in school

ups and downs before my dream came true


The similarities bring us together

The differences make us stronger

That is my life

and it is always true



It’s all worth it after all.

I have absolutely no idea why, but today, from 8am till 11am, was the most stressful moment of my life.Felt sick (probably due to a few cups of coffee and no sleep) and helpless. And I was the only one in the test centre taking the test, so had no one to talk to while waiting and that solitude added onto the stress.

Though after all the struggle, the results are more than spectacular and that’s a huge relief.

When someone told me the future is predictable, I doubted. But now, after memorising god-knows-how-many words and read random random paragraphs, I started to believe.

Keep trying, and I make my own future. Fingers crossed.

Hail a brand new year


Haven’t been to church for quite some time but attending mid-night mass was indeed great.

“Our family is the greatest blessing from God and when our family is there, we know that our prayers are answered.”

I guess that is true and exactly how I felt every time I saw my mom online or when she picked up the phone. I got really upset and nervous when she switched her phone off, no signal or busy, probably I am just too afraid of being left abandoned.

What’s past is in the past forever and the future is yet to come. Hail a brand new year and I will not dwell in the darkness of the past but move on to a life that is truly my own.

Happy new year my dear family and friends. Thank you my lord for keeping them safe and happy. Amen.

Finals in Holiday Season

The whole town smells holiday. Even buses have changed their sign to Happy Holidays, and here I am, three finals and one paper next week. And two more the week after.

Then that would be it~~!!! If I can settle down and start studying for things. The problem is, however, I cannot seem to find the time to do much revision. There are two parties coming up this Saturday and I don’t even understand why I signed up to go in the first place.

Hopefully this won’t be too bad as that is gonna be 6 hours of my time. So the only important thing to do here, is to stop watching videos and playing games and focus on my study~~!!! I can watch videos and play games after!!!

Now or Never Gal!!
