funny t-shirts

That day I went to 1 Utama and saw a shop selling funny t-shirts. Bought two of them.

This is mine... Some more it's a plural, "men"... Haha...
This is Mr. Chin's...
"You dumb shit"... Haha...

Funny leh... Haha... We had such a good laugh simply by looking at the t-shirts in the shop.

Too bad guys' t-shirts are funnier than the girls' ones. Got a lot funnier ones some more. If looking for cute and naughty t-shirts can go to this place. It's near 1 Utama TGV. The t-shirts sold are mostly black. Can be easily spotted. =)

Dream No. 1

I try to look far. But my view is blocked by the sun shade above the boat. Or is it a ship? It's more like a miniature ship, I think. I'm not sure though.

I'm on a ship with Mr. Chin. I look at him and smile after reacting to LingYue's excited voice. He kissed me tenderly on my cheek. He doesn't do this very often in the public. Feeling a little embarrassed, I ignore him and look away. The sea is blue and crystal clear. The ship is sailing smoothly. Or does it run on a motor? I'm not so sure.

I look down and saw a few people swimming near our ship. One of them is dressed in black suit and tie. I wonder why are they swimming here. It's deep sea. Aren't they afraid they'd drown? Anyway, so that's why the ship is moving forward slowly, to avoid clashing into the people.

The ship then sailed into something like a lagoon, only narrower, very much narrower. There are beach at both sides of the ship. Weird, I think. There are sea turtles resting at the beach. Some are in the water. Their sizes range from baby sea turtles to giant adult sea turtles. I'm amazed simply looking at them. The ship then halted to a stop. LingYue jumps into the sea without a second of delay.

Before I know it I'm already in the water, with Mr. Chin right beside me, together with another Caucasian girl. She's also with the snorkeling team. I'm not very sure though whether we're here to snorkel or other activities. Anyway, her grandma just passed away recently and... Yeah, basically that's all I know about her.

At some point we somehow dived into the water. I can even open my eyes and hold my breath when I'm underneath. Amazing. The girl, for some reason she is holding on to a rope (which is tied to the ship) to pull herself up to the surface. She pauses a few seconds with her head above the water, then she sinks back down, looking stunned. But she then recollects herself and swims away.

I'm curious as to why she reacts that way. So I ask Mr. Chin to pull me up to the surface to take a look. I'm shocked when I see what lies before me. Floating on the water, is the girl's grandma. I know her because I've seen her picture before. Grandma looks at me and smiles gently. And then it's time to go back. So I wave at her. She waves back. I look at Mr. Chin and realize he is looking at me as though he doesn't know who am I waving to. And I understand that he can't see what I see.

And before we can reach the ship to embark on a journey back, I woke up.

Yes it was a dream. I woke up feeling disturbed on a Sunday morning. Mr. Chin was the only person I got a chance to tell about this dream. And he, too agreed that it is peculiar and disturbing, especially the part about a man dressed in suit swimming in the sea. How weird.

Anyway, I just thought of sharing this. My posts in September are mostly for sharing, I realized. And this post is entitled "Dream No. 1" because I'm actually looking forward to dreaming more of these scary and weird dreams.

Call me a weirdo but I kind of like strange things. ;)

I'm recruiting people to learn this dance with me. =) Haha... It's actually a closing song for a Japanese animation that I used to watch back in college. It's called "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya". This is the first season. The second season is actually released and I'm downloading it now. Looking forward to watching it. =)
And ya, whoever interested to learn this dance please get in touch with me. Hehe...

Oscar Winner Labrador

I saw this touching advertisement on a Taiwanese program in Astro Channel 317. The dog was so cute and I personally think his performance worth a Oscar. Just thought of sharing it with you. Enjoy. =)

A Dream

When I was in high school, I took some time wondering what is the meaning of life, what is the sole purpose of human's existence. My friends called me crazy. I was a little weird, and a little depressed I guess. Of course, this kind of philosophy stuff is not my thing, so my wonders were to no avail. Then I proceeded to making vows that I do not want to live my life like everybody else - study, go to college, graduate, work, get a husband, get married, have kids, THE END. I wanted to live my life differently. I wanted to go travel around the world, backpacking, stop whenever I want, and wherever I want. Live the real life, I thought. I said it with much pride, with much determination, though knowing very well that it is not going to happen. I do not have the courage to do so. It requires me to give up almost everything.

By the time that I finished high school, the thought somehow subsided a little. My determination gradually faded because I was studying like mad to score my STPM. That time my only thought was to enter the best university with the best bachelor degree course. (Talk about not wanting to live like everybody else... *roll eyes*)

Then I got into UPM, Bachelor Degree of Chemical Engineering. During my first and second semester I was, again, busy studying. Thoughts like "what am I doing now?" and "what do I want to do with my life?" and "is that all to life?" popped up once in a while, only vaguely. Too vague for me to pay attention to them. During my second year, I moved out from the university campus and stayed with some housemates. We had so much fun together. And in third and fourth year, I was revolving around exams, projects, assignments and most of all, having fun with Minlon people. At that time, life wasn't much of a routine, and thus not as boring. We were crazy enough to drive up to Genting at 9p.m., spent a sleepless night in the casino and smoking (only the guys, I did not smoke) at the garden, then drive back to KL at 5a.m. after a McD breakfast. Life was full of surprises and unexpected endings.

When I started working a 9-to-5-job, the thought surfaced again. I was again, begining to wonder, do I want to live the rest of my life like this? A routine? At that time I was feeling rather depressed. Not because of this, but because of some other issues I had. I was crying almost everyday. Then Mr. Chin appeared. His sudden presence pulled me out of my depression. I felt important again, I felt love again. Until today we were together for almost one year.

And all out of a sudden, today, there it was again. The "is that all to life?" thought, it just crept in, as if it were there all along. It's not that I'm unhappy about my current life. In fact, I feel it's quite complete. I have a family (though broken, but still a family), friends (good, good, loving friends), a boyfriend (who loves me as much as he loves himself, maybe even more), a job (at least I have a stable income), and a blog (though not many readers). But I still think I don't deserve to live a routine life. At least not now.

So I thought it through, and I've made a decision (with the help of a friend). If I can't make my dream come true, I will change it. If I can't spend my whole life backpacking, I will spend a fraction of it, say 2 to 6 months, apply a working holiday visa to UK, or New Zealand, or Europe, anywhere. I will either do it alone or with Mr. Chin if he's interested (I'd be much happier if he is).

The purpose of this post is to mark this day, and set a reminder to myself this dream of mine. I will work towards this from now. Wish me luck, you guys! ;)
