A photoblog about the first week in my new place. My new house is only a kilometre or two away from the university. That aside, I’ve made a major accomplishment in recent times.
Miraculously, on Monday morning, I woke up at 7.49am and could not go back to sleep.(I usually wake up at 9am and class starts at 9.30am -_-;. But nothing can beat my A-levels’ days where I’d wake up at 8.20am for 8.30am classes). I even had the mood to go downstairs and pour myself some koko krunch and milk and read the papers, go online to satisfy my morning internet fix and finally change into something that looks the least crumpled among my un-ironed clothes. (Procrastination is a common disorder among young people).
I was awake for more than an hour before my classes started. I managed to copy every single damn thing the bullet-train Indian lecturer blasted at us and woooohooo my notes were in demand man. MY notes were in demand.
This might not seem much, but coming from the girl who falls asleep for more than 10 minutes in almost every class(but I’ve got a digital recorder to back me up, no worries)…this is a major achievement. So just humour me, can?

My carbonara.. bleurgh. Not great.
On Thursday we had a 5 hours break before our sociology class(yes, why do I even need sociology classes is beyond me). And it was the opening day for Final DestinationÂ 3. This marks the first ever movie I’ve watched in Kedah!(scribbles date in diary).
And this is how the opening day of Final Destination 3 in Sungai Petani looks like. 9 of us went for the movie and we had one whole row to ourselves plus the luxury of putting our legs up on the row in front and screaming and clapping without being a nuisance. Final Destination 3 is all about decapitating. Lovely pattern this time around though. Everyone stayed far away from my camera after the movie.
A little something to decorate my room with. I brought this photo to show my housemates quite sometime ago and forgot to bring it back to the photo album. This is Mervyn at 0 years old. Fat and heavy. Like a lump of pork! His digits had yet to be formed(See the Doraemon like hands).
I know it’s quite transparent. Will buy curtains soon.
Blinds=RM30 each. Chair=RM150. Blue plastic Ah Pek table=RM36. Bed frame=RM100. 8 inches mattress=RM300(i need a good sleep). Bed side table=RM55.
Oh!! Our first catered meal. Lovely stuff. It’s like homecook food, only better!(heh, kidding mum!) But there’s even herbal soup, herbal egg, poli sang choi, chee yuik etc. All we have to do is leave our tiffin carrier on the pillar and we have dinner at 6.30pm sharp. RM5.50 per meal.
It glows oh so brightly!!
After our first catered meal, we decided to check out the playground next to our house! Some boys from uni were playing basketball there. They play there every evening. Yeah, the housing area that I’m in has ALOT of students from AIMST. I’d say about 20%.

While I was doing sit ups(no photos, later my market value go down like shit), Lie Yuen peered at me and asked me whether IÂ wanted to go home already or not. I saw the moon behind her and snapped this picture. So nice right!!
Perhaps one of my best shots to date. The effect is damn nice!! I asked Lie Yuen to stand behind the yellow glow of the street lamp, and the tree and the evening sky as a backdrop on slow shutter speed worked wonders!
