Crazy people.

Sometimes I don't know whether to laugh or cry due to being stuck with my bunch of classmates in uni. To be honest, the first day I entered my class, I was sceptical about how would I be able to survive the 3 years with them in order to complete my degree programme.

I have to admit that I had a very high 'ego' and I refused to talk to anyone unless spoken to first. Things didn't get easier for me based on the fact that 90% of them were guys and came from very different backgrounds. Many of whom were foreigners.

After two weeks or so, I finally got to know this bunch a little bit better though the feeling of discomfort was somehow still there.

During our breaks, we would all go down to the cafeteria and play spin the bottle after Leeman finished his Red Bull. It was indeed quite a creative way to break the ice among us, although most of the questions were inappropriate. Lol.

The only disadvantage of being one of the few girls in my class is getting 'bullied' by them. They would hide my pencil case, wallet, handphone, bottle (and anything else visible to their eyes) and only return it to me upon the end of class. (It's not funny okay) There was also once when someone took my handphone case and threw it to another friend, and it landed on the floor! I thought my handphone was in it so I screamed! I was so scared I didn't know whether to laugh or cry (again).

Another example would be what happened just yesterday. We walked over to Summit to have lunch at McD's. There was some leftover fries and guess what did they do to that poor packet of fries? They put it inside a white paper bag and wrote my number and name on it and the message was somewhat like this:

If found please return it to:



P.S Be my hero

I know right. I'm speechless as well.

The next thing I knew, some random fella texted me, 'I have found ur fries wat do I do wid it'.

I started suspecting everybody in the class because I thought the guys might have used somebody's number to pull a prank on me. They said it wasn't them and asked me to reply back.

So I said, 'throw it away hahah'

Then the reply came back, 'So sad. I tot I could take it to u and meet u'.

Look at what my friends have done to me! Crazy bunch la.

If you're wondering, I'm still sceptical about the 3 years, though very much less. I think I can survive la. (But that doesn't give you guys the right to continue bullying me ah! I might just unleash my anger one fine day.)

I have PCS.

Yes, a syndrome. PCS for precordial catch syndrome.
I was devastated when I found out I had this syndrome. I didn't know what to do...

Thank God for Wikipedia, or else I would have thought I was abnormal/dying.

Read more to find out what is this about.

Children having children?

Got this from an e-mail. Thought it might be an interesting read for those of you who have not read it in the newspaper yet! Hehe.

Baby-faced boy Alfie Patten is father at 13

BOY dad Alfie Patten yesterday admitted he does not know how much nappies cost — but said: “I think it’s a lot.”
Baby-faced Alfie, who is 13 but looks more like eight, became a father four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth to 7lb 3oz Maisie Roxanne.
He told how he and Chantelle, 15, decided against an abortion after discovering she was pregnant.
The shy lad, whose voice has not yet broken, said: “I thought it would be good to have a baby.
“I didn’t think about how we would afford it. I don’t really get pocket money. My dad sometimes gives me 10.”
Little family ... Alfie, Chantelle and baby Maisie

Lee Thompson Alfie, who is just 4ft tall, added: “When my mum found out, I thought I was going to get in trouble. We wanted to have the baby but were worried how people would react.
“I didn’t know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good, though, and care for it.”
Alfie's story, broken exclusively by The Sun today has sparked a huge political storm with Tory leader David Cameron saying: "When I saw these pictures this morning, I just thought how worrying that in Britain today children are having children.
"I hope that somehow these children grow up into responsible parents but the truth is parenthood is just not something they should be thinking about right now."
PM Gordon Brown refused to comment directly on the story but said it was important that the Government did all it could to prevent teenage pregnancies.
Alfie’s dad Dennis yesterday told how the lad does not really understand the enormity of his situation — but seemed desperate to be a devoted and responsible father.
He wanted to be the first to hold Maisie after the hospital birth. He tenderly kisses the baby and gives her a bottle.
And Dennis, 45, said: “He could have shrugged his shoulders and sat at home on his Playstation. But he has been at the hospital every day.”
Maisie was conceived after Chantelle and Alfie — just 12 at the time — had a single night of unprotected sex.
They found out about the baby when Chantelle was 12 weeks pregnant.
But they kept it a secret until six weeks later when Chantelle’s mum Penny, 38, became suspicious about her weight gain and confronted her. Devoted ... Alfie holds and cuddles Maisie

Lee Thompson After that Alfie’s family told only those closest to them for fear he would be “demonised” at school.
Chantelle gave birth to Maisie on Monday night after a five-hour labour at Eastbourne Hospital, East Sussex.
Last night she told The Sun: “I’m tired after the birth. I was nervous after going into labour but otherwise I was quite excited.”
Chantelle told how she discovered she was expecting after going to her GP with “really bad” stomach pains. She said: “Me and Alfie went. The doctor asked me whether we had sex. I said yes and he said I should do a pregnancy test. He did the test and said I was pregnant. I started crying and didn’t know what to do.
“He said I should tell my mum but I was too scared.
“We didn’t think we would need help from our parents. You don’t really think about that when you find out you are pregnant. You just think your parents will kill you.”
But Penny figured out what was going on after buying Chantelle a T-shirt which revealed her swelling tum.
Chantelle admitted she and Alfie — who are both being supported by their parents — would be accused of being grossly irresponsible. She said: “We know we made a mistake but I wouldn’t change it now. We will be good loving parents.
“I have started a church course and I am going to do work experience helping other young mums.
“I’ll be a great mum and Alfie will be a great dad.”

Caring ... Alfie bottle feeds his little daughter

Lee Thompson Chantelle and Maisie were released from hospital yesterday. They are living with Penny, Chantelle’s jobless dad Steve, 43, and her five brothers in a rented council house in Eastbourne. The family live on benefits. Alfie, who lives on an estate across town with mum Nicola, 43, spends most of his time at the Steadmans’ house.
He is allowed to stay overnight and even has a school uniform there so he can go straight to his classes in the morning.
Alfie’s dad, who is separated from Nicola, believes the lad is scared deep down.
He said: “Everyone is telling him things and it’s going round in his head. It hasn’t really dawned on him. He hasn’t got a clue of what the baby means and can’t explain how he feels. All he knows is mum and dad will help.
“When you mention money his eyes look away. And she is reliant on her mum and dad. It’s crazy. They have no idea what lies ahead.”
Dennis, who works for a vehicle recovery firm, described Alfie as “a typical 13-year-old boy”.
He said: “He loves computer games, boxing and Manchester United.” Dennis, who has fathered nine kids, told how he was “gobsmacked” when he discovered Alfie was to be a dad, too.
He said: “When I spoke to him he started crying. He said it was the first time he’d had sex, that he didn’t know what he was doing and of the complications that could come.
“I will talk to him again and it will be the birds and the bees talk. Some may say it’s too late but he needs to understand so there is not another baby.”

Chantelle’s mum said: “I told her it was lovely to have the baby but I wish it was in different circumstances. We have five children already so it’s a big financial responsibility. But we are a family and will pull together and get through.
“She’s my daughter. I love her and she will want for nothing.”
Last night Michaela Aston, of the anti-abortion Christian charity LIFE, said: “We commend these teenagers for their courage in bringing their child into the world.
“At the same time this is symptomatic of the over-sexualisation of our youngsters and shows the policy of value-free sex education just isn’t working.”
Today Sussex Police and the local council's children services said they have investigated the case and pledged continued support for the young parents.
Britain’s youngest known father is Sean Stewart. He became a dad at 12 when the girl next door, 15-year-old Emma Webster, gave birth in Sharnbrook, Bedford, in 1998. They split six months later.

J & K + 8.

My current favourite TV show in the mornings is Jon & Kate Plus Eight. It's totally cute. It revolves around a family of 10 and what normally goes on in their home. The couple has a pair of twins, Madelyn and Cara. Madelyn is the sarcastic and funny one, while Cara is more of the reserved type. The couple decided to try for another one but ended up having sextuplets! Three girls and three boys. And they are all too adorable! They just make you go awww and it really puts a smile on your face just by watching them on TV.

The mom had to go for liposuction with all those excess fats at her tummy after birth. Now she looks so hot you cannot even tell she is a mother of eight kids. Amazing!

Being a mum, Kate is definitely the one who feels the stress most of the time and she is really strict with the kids. Jon, on the other hand, loves playing with his kids. There was this episode where the kids were playing dress up and then Kate told them that it was enough and they should pack everything up and get to bed. Jon retorted back by saying, 'It's only 6, party pooper!' Hahaha.

Then there was this other scene where Jon went rollerblading with the twins leaving the rest behind at home. His wife yelled at him 'Jon! You can't leave the kids behind like that!' Then she turned to the camera and said, 'Sometimes I wonder if I had 9 kids, now I know the answer.' HAHAHAH.

Them on the Oprah Winfrey show!

Don't you just feel like grabbing all of them and pinching their cheeks? Heheh.

Valentines Day is approaching. To all the couples out there, it's just another excuse to celebrate love. Don't get me wrong, I think Valentines Day is perfectly fine if not really sweet when you watch couples celebrating this day. It's just that, being single at this time does indeed suck. I'm trying really hard to put this in a right way, trying not to sound desperate. Hahah. I think if I were really desperate to get a partner, I would have so layaned those messages which typically go, 'Hi, my name is XXX, I'm from KL, mind to b frens?' But thank God I have not reached that point, so please refrain from labelling me as a despo, thanks.

Anyway, I guess those cliche lines about 'Who cares if you're single? Go celebrate it with your girl friends instead!' doesn't really work on me because somehow I think that's just...ah, I can't seem to find the word.

A friend who shall not be named, recently asked me, "So tell me, what's your type of ideal guy?" Before I could open my mouth to answer, the friend continued, "And please don't tell me ang moh or whatever ah."

Hahaha. I don't think I have an answer to that question yet.

It's okay. I'll get through that coming day like how I got through it over the years. Well, at least there is something I can be glad about, I get to skip the part of needing to spend money or worry over what would be the perfect gift to get for my partner.

Happy Valentines Day everyone, whether you like it or hate it. =)
