Trip to Cameron Highlands.

Last week, on the 16th of September 2011, me and another eight friends of mine went to Cameron Highlands just to have fun. It was a great experience and I had great fun with them. ^^

It was raining that time so the temperature dropped really fast. I was sweating in the afternoon but then as it went dark, the rain came and there you are; a stiff coldness on the air. Hoho
Not that cold though. I was wearing a sleeveless dress, knee level, and yet I still can stand firm. Ahahaha except for some of the times when the wind suddenly blow really strong wind with cold air. Fuiyoh!

Me and my bestie ate a lot of strawberries. Strawberry steamboat, strawberry ice cream, strawberry choc, fresh strawberry and so on until I felt like throwing up. Ahahaha  yet, they tasted amazing!!!

We also met the drummer of Estranged band; Andy. I didn't recognized him as I don't really know about this band but when he passed by, I signaled my friend to look at him and said, "look at that fellow! So handsome!" Then my friend turned and looked at him. She was speechless. Then she turned to me and said, "don't you know him?? He is Andy!! Estranged's drummer!!" Ahahahaha

Really wished I can go to Cameron Highlands with my family. It must be a lot of fun too. :)

Chinese Moon Festival.

For the first time in my life, I celebrated Chinese Moon Festival. Some call it Mooncake Festival, some call it Lantern Festival, some call it Mid-Autumn Festival, but whatever you call it, as long as you understand which festival am I referring to then it should be fine. Ahahaha

So, I am a Chinese but an ABC Chinese (means has already mix with other races. Not pure Chinese. ^^).  My family still celebrate Chinese New Year. It's a must. But I don't remember celebrating any Chinese Moon Festival. I've no idea why. I don't even remember holding a lantern. Well, mooncakes, of course I've eaten before. It's a must to buy it  every year. But lantern, I've always seen it from afar. Sometimes I really feel like holding it but I don't have the chance to. At last, I managed to play with it this year and to be specific; today. I had a lot of fun!!! Thanks  to Lee Kaw Siang who invited me to join them to celebrate this festival. If not because of him, I'm sure I won't know what I'd miss. Thanks Kaw Siang!! ^^

We went around with the lanterns and sing and dance and laugh. It was a great experience. I even ate mooncake today. Eugene Lee gave me and it tasted so good! Thanks Zhe Rui. :)

Another amazing thing that happened to me today is that I got a Cheongsam from my lecturer!! Thanks Madam Jennifer! You don't know what it means to me. I mean, getting something from your beloved and respected lecturer is like WOW and plus I've been wishing to have a Cheongsam all this while so it was like a dream come true right? Extremely happy!!!!!

In conclusion, God has been good to me lately. I guess I know why. ^^
Thanks, Father! ^^

Forgiveness.

I believe yesterday all the churches around the world talked about forgiveness. Why? Because of the 9/11 tragedy. My condolences to the families who'd lost their family members in that tragedy. May their souls rest in peace. Amen.

Talking about forgiveness, I remembered an anime I used to watch when I was in lower secondary school, Jigoku Shoujo. I still watch it now and then. To those who watch this anime, you know this story very well. It's about revenge. I repeat: REVENGE.

I used to think how good it was if it was real. I can take revenge to all the people who'd hurt me, physically, mentally, and even emotionally. I wanted to send them to hell so that they won't even have the chance to hurt me anymore. But now I realized, I was wrong. Totally wrong. Seriously, will you feel relieved knowing that you had took your revenge? Knowing that the person you hate is suffering? Well, I don't. And I believe you don't feel good too. What's the point of taking revenge? Do you get anything good from it? Obviously, no.

Someone once told me, what's broken is broken. Never try to put  back the pieces together or buy a new one to replace it. Instead, move on. When someone breaks your heart and you try to cover it up; pretending everything is going to be alright or find someone who you think can make everything alright again, it makes  everything harder, trust me. You just need time to heal. Move on before you clear things up. People say that they can forgive but not forget. Here is the fact; if you really forgive that someone, you will move on. It means, you will let go. And once you really let go, then it's time to FORGET. It is hard, believe me. I know. But all you need is time.

There's time to forgive, time to be angry, time to calm down, time to stand up and fight, time to cry, time to laugh, time for everything. All you need to know is when. When is the right time to do the right thing.

My last word is, these things, which I wrote here do not mean any harm to any of you who reads. I don't mean to hurt anyone's feeling. I just want to share my real thoughts with hope that anyone who reads this will understand what I am trying to say and think about it. Not only think but also act accordingly. Being a human being is not easy. That's why we are called complex creature. God loves you. I love you. That's why we want you to lead a happy life. :)

P/S: I want to apologize to each and everyone of you whom I had hurt conscious or unconsciously. I never meant to hurt you. But if I did, I'm really sorry. Please forgive me. And to those who thought they had hurt my feeling, and you want to apologize to me but you don't have the guts to, don't worry. Your apology is accepted.

Sincerely with lots of love,
Lydrielyn Koh

Safe Haven.

Another novel by my sweetheart, Nicholas Sparks. ^^
I bought this novel last week at book fair in KL. This novel is the latest by Nicholas parks. Most of his novels made me cry but not this one. I'm not saying that this one is not as amazing as the others but this novel is different. It is just different.

It is full of mystery. All the while I was reading the novel, I can sense myself kept on asking what, why, who, how, and so on. I kept on turning the page as I wanted to know more. The other novels made me read slower because I was mesmerized with every story he brought me in but this novel made me read faster as I wanted to know more and more.

The ending is power. I had goosebumps while reading the last few chapter. That shows how great his novel is.

Here is a bit about Safe Haven:

When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town on Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children; and another with her plainspoken neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.

But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles  with the dark secret that still hunts and terrifies her. A past that set her on a fearful journey across the country, to the oasis of Southport. With Jo's support, katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.

Work as if you don't need the money.

You can only become truly accomplished at something you love.
Don't make money your goal.
Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people
can't take their eyes off of you.
-Maya Angelou

I'm a workaholic.
People used to tell me that but I keep on telling myself that I am not.
Until few days ago then I realized that it was true.
I am.

Once I start working, it's hard to stop.
The other day, I worked for more than 16 hours.
Non-stop.
And the work I'm doing is not the one that just have to sit down and face your laptop.
I need to stand up for that long hours and lift heavy things, go here and there, still have to always put a smile on my face, all sort of things.
I keep on working that a friend of mine couldn't stand it anymore and force me to stop. I refused at first but then after hearing he nagged for few minutes, I stopped.
After that long hours, I worked with my laptop for another few hours. Fuh!

I don't know why but I have fun doing works. I enjoyed it.
At fist I thought I work because I need money. But then I just realized that I work because I just love working. It gives me satisfaction. I made money my goal but eventually it changed as I start working. The goal will then be to keep people satisfied, to keep people happy, to let them have fun and also for my own sake - to make myself happy.

Minesweeper

Do you know this game?
My friends told me that it was a lame game.
It wasn't interesting. AT ALL.
But for me, it was a game full of mystery.
Just like our life.
You never know what your next step may bring you.
You never know what happen if you do it.

This game has been cruel to me since I was in Standard 3. I've been addicted to this game since then. Can't stop playing it once I start.
Then I stop the addiction when I enter Form 1 because of my new environmen. I didn't play that 'lame' game already. I played  a lot of new games. Little did I know that THAT game returned to me this sem. Ahahaha

I start playing it again since I'm now using my netbook and I couldn't install much game with it's low speed. So I played it again. And here I am stuck with the game.
I just couldn't understand why I can't find all the 99 bombs!!
Today I was so close to find them all. So close!!!!!!!
One wrong mistake and BOOOMMMMMM!
Exploded.
I found all the 98. 1 bomb left. I just had to make a choice, whether to open the upper box or the other box. I clicked the other and all my hardwork ended right there at that moment....
I was dissapointed.
Clueless.
Speechless.

But, it's okay. I'll try harder and get it done! ^^

Amazing!

I felt amazing!
Why?
Only God knows. ^^

It's been a while since I uploaded a picture of mine.
Well, I haven't change much.
My hair is still of the same length. Sigh.
Feels like want to cut it short back again but then I really wanna have a long hair.
It's been like forever I had kept my hair short.

Today, again I read the novel 'A Walk To Remember' by my sweetheart, Nicholas Sparks. It just amazed me so I can't help it but to read the whole story over and over again. Trust me, you won't regret reading it.

This is the novel cover.

Me with A Walk To Remember ^^
Don't judge me, judge the book. Ahahaha
The story is about high school sweetheart. Also about the bonds between the family and frinedship. I really wanna tell you the story but it will be much better if you read it yourself. Before I read the novel, Nicholas warned me that if I proceed in reading the novel, I will cry. And I did. So now I'm warning you; you will cry after reading the novel. Don't believe me? Well, read it. :)

Funny.

People keep on asking me,
"Lala, what happened to your blog? I can't enter it anymore. You deleted it?"

Ahahaha
Just because I changed the domain of my blog, all the posts I posted are not available anymore through the link last time I used which is http://lalakoh.blogspot.com
I wanted to change back my domain to how it is before but I don't think it is needed. Maybe it's just time for me to disappear slowly....

Hohoho

A Walk To Remember

This is another book from my favorite  author - Nicholas Sparks. He wrote this book in 1999 or around 2001, I'm not sure but it had been a major motion picture in 2002.

This novel - A Walk To Remember - has been with me since I don't even remember when. But I just don't have the time to read it. Today, I just don't know what to do as I woke up early, I took the book and started reading it. The last few chapters made me cried, frankly speaking. Not just tears rolling down my cheek but I cried like really loud. The story really touched my heart. It wasn't a surprise because all the books I've read by Nicholas Sparks had really made me cry. T.T

Now I'm waiting for another book which I asked a friend of mine to buy at KL's book fair the other day, Safe Haven. Couldn't wait to see what Nicholas Sparks have for me next! ^^

P/S: Seriously, you gotta collect all of his books!!

Holiday?

While everyone was busy having their own sweet  time, having fun and hanging out with their friends while eating 'kuih raya', I was busy doing tons of work and attending seminars. Well, I wouldn't say that it's such a waste. I collected a lot of experiences in just a week.

Last weekend, I went for a trainee teachers' camp. It was awesome. Do you know how long have I dreamt of owning a presenter? I got it for free there. I was extremely excited and super happy with it. FREE, man! I saved my money for that and I got that for free. Amazing!! Ahahaha
I even met new friends there Not only from other institutes but as well  as my own institute. I never know that I don't socialize much in my institute. Sad, don't you think? :(

I also met new friends in McDonald. Don't ask me how. Ahahaha And also met AC Mizal and Wahid (Senario). WOW!!!!!!!!!
Why on Earth don't I own a camera???? Haiz..... camera is going to be the next in my wish list. Since I don't have to use the money to buy a presenter anymore, so I can use it and of course top up a bit to get a camera. My sister asked me to ask from my dad but hey, I am a big girl now. And you expect me to ask from him? Embarrassing-lah...... Plus it feels good to use a thing which you buy it yourself. Right??? ^^

I feel like telling you about all my experiences but I just can't. Words alone can't describe the  whole lot of story. (Well, if you know me you would know how I tell a story -- with actions and all sort of hand gestures. Ahahaha)

Btw, I miss my family.... T.T
