another random day

Finally! After being so busy with my school projects, I had some time to chillax on a lovely Sunday. After church, J and I went to watch the highly recommended 'The Expendables'. After watching the movie, I think I should rephrase that the movie is highly recommended BY guys FOR guys. To all my guy friends out there, if you're into action movies, then this is something you'll like with all the big names. Watch it for all the firepower and huge explosions! My personal rating is 1.5/5. Cheers!

Sorry that I had been MIA for so long as I was pretty hooked with my schoolworks. Despite that busy schedule, our class had a pretty fun BBQ at Sonny's place last Sunday. Would like to elaborate more about it when I get my stuffs done, maybe in a day or two. Stay tuned!

I had came across a meaningful passage in the leaflet that I had received last Sunday in church. It's about the definition of true friend, and it's written in an interesting way. This is how it goes:


Accepts you as you are
Believe in you
Calls you just to say hi
Doesn't give up on you
Envision the whole of you
Forgives your mistakes
Gives unconditionally
Helps you
Invite you over
Just enjoy being with you
Keep you close at heart
Loves you for who you are
Makes a difference in your life
Never judges
Offers support
Quiets your fears
Raises your spirits
Says nice things about you
Tell you the truth when you need to hear it
Understands you
Values you
Walks beside you and
Xplains things you don't understand
Yells when you won't listen and
Zaps you back to reality.

A true friend is the one who walks in while the others go out. If you want to know who your friends are, just make a mistake.

the story of a cup of latte

I was hooked with latte once again after making a batch for everyone to pair with the panna cotta dessert (oh ya! Grace still owe me pictures! :p) that I had brought over to Grace's house. In the first place it was the thought that we wanna use up the beans that J bought from the US few months ago before it goes expired, but the latte came out to be quite pleasant to my taste buds and I had seen myself making cups and cups at home for the past few days. Could it be this special Pike Place Roast that had made the whole encounter so beautiful? It could be the faint cocoa and nutty flavor that lingered in my mouth and stimulated my urge for more.

Anyway not to beautify the whole encounter too much, in reality another reason that I had been injecting myself with doses of coffee is to keep myself awake. I am having a serious problem of falling fast asleep whenever I hold my revision book for more than 15 mins.

Well... I guess it's time to grind some beans cook some coffee foam some milk and hit my books again. Mind to have a cup of latte?

Test is around the corner and I guess I will need to put "Friends" aside for now. Just realised that I actually didn't have much time to do my revision due to the long hours in school and the neverending house chores at home, so I have to do my revision whenever possible, during break in school, in MRT and even during dinner. Anyway it had been 5 years since my last exam and it feels awkward to be in the whole study-for-exam situation again. Ahh.. nostalgia.

Life had been quite hectic lately. At a glimpse it's already week 3 since school started and it feels weird to me that I am still constantly having that kinda holiday-ing mood. Sometimes I woke up being confused of whether I should get myself ready for work or for school. I guess I will still need some time to adapt to the drastic change from the intense engineering work life to a much more relaxed study life. Anyway working in a kitchen is certainly no joke and not as easy as people usually thinks it is, as it really requires perfect discipline and a lot of common sense. But I think I will be okay.
