Happy Tanglung Day!

Yesterday was exactly one year and a month that we’ve been classmates. What other way to celebrate but walking around the residential area totting tanglungs?
We went to Lagenda Heights, were the other half of the classmates are currently staying.  

We MAY appear to be kids at heart, but I believe the true reason is that most of us are arsonists at heart.

We had our first class gathering when we celebrated the mooncake festival exactly two weeks into our course a year ago.

So much has changed since.

Before getting your modem killed again, check out this video we made! 🙂
I don’t want to spoil the gist of the story. I’ll elaborate on it at the bottom of the post.:)

RM25 worth of lanterns and candles. 

We were running late as we were supposed to meet the rest of the classmates at 9pm. It was a Bring Your Own Tanglung(BYOT) session.. so we scoured around for lanterns. We checked out almost every chinesey sundry shop to no avail to the point of even checking out an Indian grocery store. If we don’t have tanglung, those Indian deepavali clay cup with flames would do! LOL!

We went to Taman Ria and was disappointed that almost all the shops were closed. Then we passed by a shop that sold praying things(joss sticks, idols, the works) and Lie Yuen was like, “Com’n lah! This kind of shop where got sell one?”

I was indignant and said, “I’m sure got lanterns, I’LL SHOW YOU!”

So I went into the shop, full of confidence and found an entire box of lanterns. I took a packet out and went outside the shop and started jabbing at the packet of lanterns with the most lanci face ever to the rest of them who were still in the car. Wahahaha. Somemore don’t believe me.


Second problem: Sticks. This is Andy. The mutated unicorn.

Fortunately, outside Nien’s house, there was a tree. Which was without many leaves. And then we had Joe, who is quite tall. Joe snapped off the branches for us.


And then we could have sticks to hang our tanglungs on. Thank you, Joe!


Jimmy was being a little more innovative.


The many tanglungs.


Another angle.


Chwan Hong and his lanterns.


Camwhoring with mine.

Floating lanterns.


Preparing for our walk around the taman!


I asked Andy to stand far far away to get this lovely shot.(yes, my tripod came along for the occasion)


I like it when the tanglungs gather together. Makes a very nice photo.


As we were taking photos along the empty stretch of road, three touristy types were walking towards us. They were like, “Hey! What are you guys doing?”

So nice to see intrigued foreigners who are curious about our culture. Jimmy was explaining to them about the lady who drank her husband’s youth potion and flew to the moon after downing the entire vial. They listened intently and were very very interested! We even gave them some of our tanglungs and they were so happy. 🙂

We forgot to ask them what on earth are they doing, coming to Sungai Petani for a holiday. They were staying at Swiss Inn, which was a stone’s throw away from Lagenda Heights.

We came to a conclusion that MAYBE they are newly hired lecturers to come assist the overworked school of dentistry staff.


Strangers in the night.


The girls!

I can’t decide which photo out of the tree that I took of the exact same scene that I want to put up. That’s Swiss Inn in the background.


We were standing on either sides of a bridge.


A close up.


So nice right! I go and make spoil the photo soemmore. Haih…


Oh look! I’m so special. 😀


Ee Chean gets illuminated.

Zhu Zen and Nien


Sett and Steffi. So nice lah the colour.


This is Chee Wen. He is not a vegetarian.(less hands)


This is Chwan Hong and he is a religious vegetarian. Hence the many hands to signify his purity.

Damn nice right! Can block the other boys so nicely.:D


Awwwwwwwwwww!


Ken and I illuminating ourselves.


l-r: Lie Yuen, Brenda and Me. Love the background too.


Another one of Steffi and Sett.


Me and my lanterns.


Lie Yuen and Chwan Hong


I didn’t edit this photo because I loved the colours of this one as it is.


I already told Poh Yee not to move so much!


Nien and her lanterns.


An end to a fun lantern festival.


And so, the seventeen of us went back and shared four mooncakes. Expensive wei…somemore we’re only students.

I’m inviting Poh Yee to lie on my cushions. She looks traumatised though.


Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam…………cha.

-_-

Oh right!! About the video.. hahahaha.. The eerie background noise is actually Chee Wen’s ring tone. Yeah, like what kind of ring tone is that. LOL! And Sett was controlling the camera. Chee Wen was swinging a lantern above my head and I was supposed to scream blood curdlingly.. but the first video had a better scream. However, Sett didn’t manage to record the scream, so the second one would have to do! 🙂

Merdeka And Some Alcohol

I had some pitiful plans planned for Merdeka eve.

I was supposed to carry it all by my lonesome. For a couple of years now I’ve been wanting to catch the fireworks(which is at Sunway Pyramid) from the overhead bridge near my old school. It has got a pretty good view of the entire Sunway area! Or even sitting at the steep slope of grass at the corner of my school compound would have been a romantic idea – problem is my boyfriend is running around a round-a-bout in NUS 49 times to commemorate Merdeka with the other Malaysians in Singapore. -_-. Nus tradition apparently.

But it seems that Bryan was having a mini gathering, so I had to shelf the fireworks from a bridge plan for another year.(provided I have plans for this year’s New Year eve).


Penny and I were supposed to go together, but due to some miscommunication, I ended up in Jasiminne’s car and we followed Penny down to SS2. Then Jasiminne ter-overtook Penny and then we got lost. -_- For awhile.


I keep thinking that Bryan’s underwear is like a dick-sock of sorts. Oh, you know the type. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’ll try my best to explain in the comments later.


Penny made extremely sweet cupcakes. Damn sweet wei Penny..


Jasiminne was going around with her new Lomocam.


And I finally got to meet Asyraf. At long last!


Rightt.


Yee Hou and I camwhoring with the fishies.


Cheryl has the exact same earring as me.


Kelli and I. When I was with Chee Kiang at the Curve on saturday night, we bumped into her, cheryl and bryan. Seems that chee kiang knows kelli since their leo club days. Oooo! .. But alah, Subang Jaya know each other also no big deal lah. Haha. We’re all connected!


Ivan. I’m supposed to guestblog for you kan..:( Coming soon, coming soon. Don’t give up on me.


Albert and his two lower deciduous central incisors. The permanent central incisors never erupted. Strange boy, he is.


Hey, that’s me.


Why, hello there~. 😉


Another pic of Cheryl and I.


LOL LOL LOL!!! Angle only…


See Penny’s face like naik syok only.


SO cute!!! Wanna take a guess who’s the girl ar?


Kelli and I reenacted our raping Bryan scene. Damn nice to pull his pants. But he tied his pants so tightly.

Someone started to make drinks for everyone and I had like Bacardi, Chivas, Wine and Beer….. i think. Already it doesn’t sound like good news right? Read on lah.


I can’t remember who suggested we took class photos. Hahhaa. Damn funny.


A prim and proper one.


Someone said to Penny, “Oi!! Where got teacher smoke one??” and then she said, “I AM MRS. WONG! The school principal!” and she took a big puff like damn tow kei like that. I laughed so hard. Still laughing now actually. Penny,penny,penny. You should have seen the expression on her face.. so authoritative! Tai ka cheh! *shakes head*


HAHA. Damn red.

Kelli thought us a game called “the Honest game”. We all sat in a circle with a drink in our hands. We were each supposed to admit to something ie. “I’m not wearing a bra today.”…then those who are not wearing a bra, will have to drink. Guys also don’t wear bras right? So it’s applicable too. So it goes on in a circle with each person admitting to some secret of sorts. QUite fun!

The things we got to learn about each other……..*evil laugh* Some of you are very naughty indeed. Very naughty.


Seng Meng and i! He was also damn red. I think you were abit tipsy, Seng Meng! 🙂


ooo!! Oo!! Mikel!! When I first started blogging, he was one of my very very first blogging friends. I dare say even the first blogger friend that I have.

You can see from the look on my face that I was abit red and not quite myself. It’s all in the eyes, look closer.

I went up to him and said, “Mikel!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN YOU BEFORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” and hugged him tight tight and camwhored with him immediately. And like I have mentioned, I would never have done that if I didn’t have anything to drink. I don’t get all touchy-feely when I first meet a person. So not me.


l-r: Mikel, Slinky, Shawn, Yee Hou, Jack


Look at Yee hou!! HAHAahahaha.


Jasiminne and I


Penny and Mikel


Our gracious host.


Sherve and I! Such a hot chick!


LOL! Check out the faces! Yo penny!


Another one of Sherve and I.


Joh… memang weird adi.


Check out Yee Hou’s lips. It’s like the centre is connected to each other leaving two holes at the sides. Heehee.


hehehe. Damn hiau por face.


And I climbed up the wall which separates Bryan from his neighbours and sat there.


Yee Hou and Cynthia


I was then joined by Jasiminne and Penny.


One more.


wooops. See, told you I was wayyyy off tangent. I’m very very very straight, for the record. No hint of bi-ness in me. I’m sure it was the alcohol. *nods vigorously*


Not missing a photo opportunity, that Albert. -_-


I love this photo. I don’t know why, but the lighting is just so dramatic in this one.

Penny and I lying on the hood of someone’s car.


shawn and i

After a vague and foggy drive back to Subang(thanks Jasiminne!), I met up with Mun Teng, Ben Shyen, Sze Hsiung, his sister Jennifer, David and Kelvin Lim at Suku.

Apparently they also decided to go up a bridge to catch the Sunway fireworks and so we adjourned to the overhead bridge in SS15.

I remember being deep in conversation with Sze Hsiung and he was very friendly to me …in fact very layan as I tried my best to keep a straight head. Ehehe, thanks for  layaning me despite my slightly weird…weirdness.

ben Shyen and I. See my eyes wei…see my eyes. So…pelik.


Mun Teng came in.

Another cuter one! I think Jennifer looks really hot here! Reminds me of Adrian’s girlfriend, Delene. Speaking of Delene, I was watching Sush’s uni’s Malaysian Night Video and Mun Teng and I were drooling over Delene’s body.

*whacks Adrian on the head* You lucky bastard!! (and good luck for your anatomy paper today.)


Why lah Ben Shyen never smile….


Kelvin and I! He was showing me a pic of him in which he used to have pink hair on top of those blonde spikes.

I went back home and went online and must’ve spoke alot of crap on MSN.

I vaguely remember taking my hands and pretending that my keyboard was Mahjong tiles.

the effect ended up looking like that:

kslajdiuhiuehr734y23475dsf;dsf”;dds345$#%3$%./;d1~1Dg

I felt really sick when I went home. I honestly can’t really recall what I crapped on on MSN that night.

So imagine the laughs I had when I opened my chat history a few days later. Hahahhaha. Now you can laugh with me too.

I know I caused Esther and Chee Kiang to call me all the way from Australia and Singapore. LOL.

I cried on the phone to Chee Kiang and wailed that I was hungry and nobody wants to cook for MEeeeeEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeEeeeee….

Gees. *shakes head*



See, even booze also spell wrongly. sheesh.

LOL, oklah, don’t know about you guys, but I didn’t remember parts of the conversation so I really burst out laughing here and there. Hahaha.

I know my so called drunk experience is not much. Crying, making out with a girl, not walking straight, manja-ing, puking twice and being random and crude is NOTHING…but cut me some slack lah, I’ve been couped up in Kedah and hardly get to go OUt anD AboUt.. so……..this is still something different for me.

Happy Merdeka!

I wonder what our forefathers would be thinking if they know that their great granchildren celebrate the country’s independence by getting high. Hehe.

Oh! Oh! I was checking my statcounter last night… and I went WTF!!!!!! when I saw this:

Like what exactly was going on in the person’s head who googled MY name, Douglas Lim’s name, and KLPAC????

?!???!?!??!?
