judicium & foto dekanat

Yalor I'm the only Chingko in my group which can be hilarious at times. Pretty not we all?


Weee!!


Remember them?? Oh how time has passed. Has it already been 2 years since my FUN time in OBGYN (internship)?? Cut to now: me graduating and them working as lecturers for my university. Crazy right? Ah Mang and Ah Nggun now lecture for the Biochemical department and I caught them just done with invigilating an exam.


Miss MasMas calls me perempuan Cina sesat *giggles*


Super cute right?


Miss MuniMuni and moi. Miss MuniMuni used to be as FAT as me. Look how much thinner she is now. Now I'm the only FAT one left.. boo!!


Mak-mak Datin (L-R): Shelbulous moi, Miss KosKos, Miss IyanIyan, Miss MasMas


My Indon colleagues. Me odd one out with the kerudung clan. Everyone hern happy-loh 'cos we all passed the judicial. Now all that' left is the real graduation day and the Doctor's Oath ceremony. Today is just picture taking session with the Dean and for our graduation book.


Miss HilHil says I put on weight *pouts* That's catastrophic. Moving on, they so cute yah. My really really good friends back at the start of internship: Miss RusRus and Miss HilHil. Couldn't locate Miss MuMu though.


Everyone getting ready for the camera. Since there were too many of us they divided us into 2. So while the first batch took pics...

The rest of us watched on.. anticipating our turn.


In the meantime we camera-whored. Ah Prada looks so handsome kan? In the end I got kinda blocked in the group picture by somebody's freakin' tall head and giant hat. Sucks to be short.


Hehe abit too Saloma-leh *giggles* Ah Sof and I doing our best P.Ramlee pose. Like my kebaya or not?? I picked out the cloth and designed it myself. Uber chic non?

got no water

See. Not that I wanna whine a lot yah but life just gives me SO MANY reasons to behave this way. Like today it’s so freakin’ hot and there’s no running water so if I wanna bathe I gotta fetch water from the well!! I can’t believe I have to do this AGAIN in my lifetime. I figured that Jatinangor would be the last of this kemarau business.

*frowns*

bon yum-yum: roti unyil!!

Oh Me Lordy!! These are the best cute lil' mini breads on the face of planet earth. Seriously. I mean for starters I have never had mini breads so small and cute. Then I've never had mini breads so yummy yum yum (arranged according to personal preference): Cream corn, Sausage & Cheese, Ham & cheese, Chocolate sprinkles & cheese, Chocolate sprinkles only.



These are as Shelbulous as MACAROONS-lho. Serious. I could finish an entire box in a sitting. Pointed my finger just to prove to you the magnitude of its fury lil' size. Worth a trip to Bogor!!

Love Miss KetarKetar for introducing to me the wonders of Roti Unyil *bisou*

you try to give away keeper

Remember this??

Miss MasMas and Miss IyanIyan has been ultra generous by allowing me to bunk in their room on days when I’m in Bandung and today is one of those days-lah. Obviously I have E! permanently on ‘cos it’s imperative I catch the latest bulletin regarding Britney Spears, me idol… yea she is u f*cker, since I’ve been out of touch with the world for so long. (What you mean E! isn’t really news? I don’t judge you for watching the *gag* ber-boring CNN or NBC so you don’t judge me)

OK-lah only 2 weeks but 2 weeks in Sumedang feels like 20 years in Azkaban OK? So anyways me was catching up with episodes of Kimora Lee Simmons’ My Fabulous Life (super-o lovin’ that show-lho) when Isaac Mizrahi’s show, Isaac, came on and guess who’s his guest-de-la-guest?? None other than my also favourite LISA LOEB :) I haven’t had the chance to catch the new season of Number One Single, Lisa’s Show on E! also I think, so it was lovely watching her come on as a guest on Isaac’s show. I was packing while watching (I seem to be forever packing, goodness save my Shelbulous soul) so I couldn’t focus 100% on what they were chattering about but I did notice a relatively decent bloke walk up on stage with a pink box in his arms. He’s apparently a music producer who is also in his own personal band, genre: umm.. let’s just call it eclectic. Isaac had the liberty of setting them up and boy did he make a good choice. The fella’s a lil’ nerdy but Lisa ain’t exactly Miss C-C-Cool either. Moving on to the MOST IMPORTANT POINT!



He brought her a gift for starters: “ding”. In a bloody giganto PINK box some more: “ding ding”.


Which turns out to be a Hello Kitty rice cooker: “ding ding ding”. Isn’t that the sweetest thing?? He gave her something she likes!! That is sweet.



A Sanrio surprise is more than sweet *sigh* I can’t remember the last time when a boy gave me something I truly truly like. Maybe never. Or at least not brilliant enough ‘cos I don’t remember getting anything monumental. A Hello Kitty juicer would be nice. Or a pink Juicy Couture bag. Or that Paul Frank jumper with attached puppet mittens. Or the new Daisy perfume by Marc Jacobs. Or a Polaroid camera. Or a Stella McCartney for Adidas sweater. Ahhh the list goes on: I like too many things.

can you believe it's been a year since the last puasa?

Well I can't. It's hard to imagine on this exact day last year we were bumbling about Orchard Road buying this and that which I've yet to use. Finally I got the remaining pictures off Miss KosKos camera so here they are... the rest of it, first part that is:



We had to get up at 5 in the morning to make the 7am flight. It was a bad idea after all 'cos shops in Singapore open at, like, 11am!! I like shopping back home in Malaysia 'cos everything's open by 9.30am.

We randomly roamed down the street in search of an open shop. Couldn't find any except for some Starbucks cafes.


A close up of the Hermes trapeze-print outfit. It's so lovely.


See!! Noone around but us.


Proof we really came.


Mood improved after some purchases. Glee!!
