For some crazy reason, my last post has been playing a weird disappearing act on me. Oh well.

Maybe posting this would help.

Itching to Write

I am so itching to write. I’m currently at the “Intsik Net Shop” (note: not the kedai‘s real name) with Ate Grace and I know that we would be leaving anytime but — I am so itching to write!!!

Well, let’s see how much I can write given the indefinite amount of time I have di sini.

Quick Scribble #1. Wondering why we’re back at the Intsik Net Shop? Sigh. Broadband hasn’t been working since midnight last Monday. I really don’t know why. It could be because of the payment or — something. UKM Jaring’s still Jaring, but we haven’t seen each other since Friday (LOL!) when I checked out of Za’ba. Sigh. So, it’s been hard to connect with people these days. Oh well. Keri lang naman.

Quick Scribble #2. I have a pile of laundry waiting for me at home. Hahaha. Masipag talaga ako. Di ako nagkukunwari!!! Hahaha! Ate Grace and I tackled the ref this morning (ugh.. defrosting madness) and we’ll go back to it this afternoon. Be fixing up the house again in preparation for tomorrow and next week. Hahaha. This is great! Housekeeping madness! Woohoo!

Quick Scribble #3. I’m bringing work home. Sigh. Okay, okay, so the news is out. I’m going home. May suprise-suprise effect pa raw. Oh well. So it might be a suprise for the non FB and non FS community. But oh well. Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yeah. I’m bringing work home. GRA stuff. Sorry. Have to. But I will have fun. I will. Keri naman. :)

Quick Scribble #4. I am sooo sleepy. Malaysian food has too much MSG? I don’t know. But I always get this way after eating a hearty Malaysian meal. Hmmm. Craving for Sisig. For siomai. For — the red sugo, proven, butterfly bread, fishballs and tokenene! Wehhh! Hahaha. Who wants to go on a food trip with me? :D

Quick Scribble #5. N days to go! N days to go! Hahaha! At least I can keep that a secret. “No one” knows the date and time of her arrival. Hahahaha! Oh my. Am I gonna commute all the way back to elbi? Pwede rin.

Quick Scribble #6. Ang lakas lang ng loob ko. Of course I still have to get my passport on Tuesday. But my faith tells me I’m getting it without any more probems or concerns. Hehehe. At bigla ko nanamang naalala ang comment ni Ate Ahl sa FB. Sigh. I am so, so, so thankful for the grace and the favor. (And the grace and the favor… and the grace and the favor… and the… hehe).

Quick Scribble #7. Grace-filled week up ahead. Super-grace-filled weekend as well. Oh, I am so, so, so excited for the weekend. What does God have in store for us? ALL THINGS WORK OUT FOR THE GOOD of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

Quick Scribble #8. With everything that’s happening and with everything that’s still to happen — I wonder how on earth will I be able to write the next pdf file? Hrrrmmm. And how would I send it? I need closure! Hahaha. I need to send that file before going home! Arrggg.

Quick Scribble #9. There I go again. Oo na, oo na. Uuwi na nga eh. Totoo nga ang balita. Hehehe.

Quick Scribble #10. Hay. May batang sobrang excited lang no? Well, I guess I’ll just end this entry here, before things get crazier.

See you all soon. Jumpa lagi!

Non-Technical Random Scribbles

Time for a breather. I just finished my last final exam (is that redundant???) for the sem this (err, yesterday) morning. Will have to pore over heaps of research papers today (and tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, and the day after that). I really need to get my lit review and research proposal done by the 15th. Anyone in for an extra round of grace?

Well, since I’ll be reading and writing technical stuff for the next few days, I just thought I’d write out some “non-technical” random scribbles before the madness starts.

Non-technical Random Scribble #1.

My goodness. It’s 12:43 on my clock right now and I’m still awake. Ugh. Insomnia? Well, I’ve been “resting” for the most part of this day, so I guess that explains why I’m still awake at this hour (but when you think about it, I’m always up naman after midnight, even if I hadn’t spent much of the day resting. Ugh. Whatever.)

Resting. After my exam, I just sleeepptt. Read Donald Miller. Took another nap. Watched Twilight for the first time (hahaha, ooohhhkayyy.) Battled it out with Jaring afterwards. Proceeded to enter another battle after that one. With who, lah? With my new-found friend-slash-fiend, the washing machine! Can you believe that I’ve been staying in this dorm for more than four months and it was only yesterday afternoon that I discovered that my block actually had a coin-operated washing machine on the third floor? But all the instructions are in Bahasa Melayu!!! OMG lang.

I took another nap after my encounter with the malay washing machine. I was actually waiting for the drizzle outside to subside so that I could hang my clothes. But since it was still raining, I decided to sleep it off. Woke up to find that the pitter-pattering had not stopped. So I spent much of the night trying to transform my room into a “sampayan” area.

Craved for coffee, so I drank a cup of Nescafe 3-in-1.

So now it’s already 1:07 am. Now you know why I’m still up. Ugh. Must. Get. To. Sleep.

Non-technical Random Scribble #2.

Whew. It’s the 11th of November. My fifth monthsary in Malaysia is coming up in 13 days. I should be getting my passport (with my student visa – yey!) that day.

I have mixed emotions about this whole thing.

On one hand, I’m really so happy that I’ve already made it this far. (Rephrase: God has enabled me to come this far. Sigh. He knows all the “dark and stormy nights” that I had to go through. And the ones I’m going through. And — well, you get the idea). Being the melancholic person that I am, I have been counting the months since June 24. Pretty soon, I’ll be counting years. Time sure flies, doesn’t it?

Which leads me to the other hand. My sem’s already ending. December’s approaching. Now I’m thinking, “God, may nangyari ba sa mga unang buwan ko dito???

Well, I had a sudden flashback of the Airport, Sungai Buloh, Keselamatan, Embassy, Jabatan Imigresen, and PPS episodes. Oh yeah. Madami rin namang nangyari. Like crazy, right?

Pero alam ni Lord that I wasn’t asking about that.

Lord, may nangyari ba?

Well, I believe something has. And there’s still the rest of November. The stage’s just being set.

Non-technical Random Scribble #3.

The stage is set. I had a great weekend, by the way. Getting lost in Taman Merdeka, getting lost in His embrace, feeling the Melaka sun once again… Sigh. I want more weekends like this! Minus the pagod, yeah, but that’s part of the package.

I want to write more about this!!! But friends, you’d have to wait for my pdf document. Hahaha. Dunno when I can get around to writing that, though.

Oh no. Which reminds me! I have a borang that needs submitting. And some minutes that I haven’t gotten around to writing yet.

I will not panic. I will not panic. I will not panic.

Kalmado lang, Mari.

Non-technical Random Scribble #4.

Hahaha. Anybody noticed how I’ve been mixing Malay words and Tagalog phrases in this little piece of writing? I’ve gone tri-lingual! Haha. BMTalgish? Boleh.

Let’s add some Ilokano kaya? Mabalin?


Non-technical Random Scribble #5.

(Ano daw???)

Non-technical Random Scribble #6.

I have run out of non-technical random scribbles. I guess it’s my brain falling asleep.

I’m craving for something salty right now. Or something sweet. Like teh ais. Or bandung susu. Or Kapitan’s chendol.

Mmmm. Like, I can really go out and buy something from some Mamak Stall at this hour.

The craving would have to wait for tomorrow.

Right now, I guess I’ll be a good girl and catch some Zzzzs.

Enough of these non-technical random scribbles.

Bitin ba ang blog? Well anyway.

Good night, everyone.
