My Little Sister is All Grown Up

The sad but inconvenient truth is that I had to know this through Facebook. How ironic, the thing which actually brought people closer could actually lead to ones eventual downfall. But the reason I am writing this post is not to express distraught (like how I usually do) but to rejoice. The status blared across my Facebook News Feed:“Tricia Gan is in a relationship with Leong Chia How” Tonnes of comments swooped across the page as if it were greased lightning. A bit ‘paiseh’ that I was one of the last to give my congratulations. After more than 3/4 of a year since you became my lil’ sis, you finally got into a relationship with a person whom you truly love and I am sure he will love you just the same. Goodness gracious, time does really fly. It seems like just yesterday you were pestering me with your adorable little smile and big bulbous eyes. As much as those seem like a pain in my neck but they made me grew fonder each time. You really behaved uniquely as opposed to many others. Y…

Onward to AMERICA!!!

AMERICA!!! Land of the free and home of the brave. That’s what they all say. Well, it’s been precisely 1.5 years since I first heard of the American University Transfer Programme (AUP) in INTI International University. Quite an interesting programme filled with interesting individuals. Seriously, it’s you all of you who make this programme worth joining. Though we may not have been the closest of buddies or even friends who hang out 24/7, it was everyone of you who made quite an impact in my life.Hence, in your journey to a foreign land, allow me to dedicate this post about you in my perspective. I’m sorry if what I have written is not to your liking but please do accept my most humblest apologies. In addition to that, congratulations on the opportunity of furthering your education overseas. You all have definitely earned it.Well now, without further ado:Darren Cheah, you seriously have brains which pack one hell of a punch but yet, you look extremely calm and relaxed. I still don’t r…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JON JON!!!

Today is a very special occasion and it’s barely even 2 days since my previous post. Anyway, there is only a few minutes left before the day ends but I would like to say:It’s that time of the year again, big guy^^Jonathan Teh, my brother who is half my mass and weight but with a heart that outweighs mine by tenfold no, a hundred folds. I guess that everything isn’t dependent on size and strength. Sometimes, even the smallest people have the biggest hearts (go watch Captain America!). In addition to that, I don’t reckon I’ve ever seen you sad before, only happy, bouncing around everywhere with your signature, “LOL!”. It’s true that it’s already a year since you left for America and my oh my, does time really fly…oops…I mean, does time really crawl. This one year has been a real testing phase. I lost friends and family but gained new ones along the way. It’s true that I’ll never be able to be you or come close to what you have done. You gave me a family away from my family (home away fr…

The Girl of Little Words but Many Thoughts

It’s that time of year again, but it’s not the one where I say, “Oh damn! I’m so sick and fed-up of this.” Before I continue, I would like to show you something:Ain’t that the cutest cake you have ever seen?That’s right folks. It’s the birthday of a very special girl to my heart. So, I’d like to give a really loud shoutout:HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY DEAREST CATHERINE!!My oh my, does time really fly by faster than the speed of sound. Nay, the speed of light I have to say. It seems like just yesterday when we celebrated the birthdays of the August babies and today, another year has passed. Don’t feel old though. With age comes great wisdom (that’s why grandmothers know the best. XD Joking only). What amazes me is your progress since last year. You are a girl who everyone knows as a girl of little words but many thoughts as the title of this post suggests. You were always a person who was never the socialite but you always had what you wanted to say inside your mind. Throughout the year, what re…
