A day out with Crazy Caitlyn
When I say crazy, I really mean crazy.

It was Caitlyn's birthday and we were suppose to go to the zoo because she adores tall long legged giraffes, unfortunately the weather forecast that it was going to have a thunderstorm so we decided on lunch at Sushiya instead.

Birthday Baby Caitlyn.
So this is how we met, I work with her at the cafeteria and she is my supervisor.
As simple as that.
The thing that is not so simple about her is that she is crazy.

Would you believe me if I told you that she planted a bomb in her elementary school teacher's desk? I repeat ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. Imagine how young Crazy Caitlyn was?!

Would you believe me that she is banned from entering Washington DC?
She actually offended the PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES to do so... I don't wanna go into details on how she did it but yeah.
You readers ARE CONVINCED THAT SHE IS CRAZY RIGHT? :)
love love love her

We ordered an assortments of Japanese Rolls and chilled with some other friends Caitlyn invited over.

All of us indulging in the sushi

Caitlyn and I at the bar chilling

Then the boys left and we girls headed to a bar called Harvey's.
Stupid above 21 rule, everyone else has cider beer and cocktails except for me.
I had ice water :(
From left: Lynn, Tieng, Caitlyn and I

We were picking song from the music box and apparently the stupid machine ate our 50cents. LoL

Then we walked around Kalamazoo Downtown.
Strange as it seems, after being here for 10months we still never actually went downtown which was only 5 minutes away.
Reason?
I'm not being racist of whatever but this a fact. Downtown is near to the ghetto area thus more African Americans hangout there. Thats where most of the crimes are.
Including shootings.

Kalamazoo has a pretty decent cultural arts community. It has more than 3 theaters.

Caitlyn, Tieng and I fussing over a cute little car. And of course, the photographer of the day would be my dear big sis Lynn.

Random Update
So I am finally free from 7 hours of work, 3 hours of class and lonely dark 3 hours of practicum in a row from Monday to Thursday for the past 4 weeks.
Insanity!
Yesterday was our final show and I stayed back with the other cast members to fold Stage Curtains that are literally 5 times the size of my living room in my apartment.
Not to mention, we folded about 7 curtains that size and let me not forget to add on the little fact that those curtains are 14 years old and have not been washed since.
Can you imagine the amount of dust and crap stuck on those stage curtains?
*ewwWww......

Fortunately to say, I am finally free of all the hard work for this summer.
:)

*edited*
Mr. photographer DJstoneage needed to edit the quality of the pictures.
I'll need to upload those a little later.
Meanwhile, here's what Sidekick Lynn snapped from the mini shoot.

Not a fantastic background I know, but what do you expect from a last minute spontaneous shoot anyway? :)

Look at baby Ruffle, so adorable.

Introducing Jephster the Fat-Ass-Noob-Dawg

And he is cute!!!! :)

Looks like my blog is pretty dead huh..
Be patient readers, my busyness is about to be over in a couple of hours.
I am stuck in my practicum tonight till 12am because it is the last show and we'll clean up stuff after that.
THEN, I'll be free.

Good news is, I'm going to Detroit for a holiday next weekend, which means... more pictures!
God I can't wait for this to be over...

16 MORE DAYS TO HOME SWEET HOME!!

(took this picture outside the Music and Dance Building)

Well, I never really did miss home until a few months ago when I started thinking about the stuff that I wanna do. I do miss my friends and family but thanks to God-Give talents who created the Internet and Speedy Communication, family would be just a phone call away and friends are only a MSN message, Email or even a FACEBOOK Wall away.
Ain't that awesome?
Thank goodness I wasn't born 20 years ago... I swore I would have cried every night after leaving Malaysia.

I'm kinda worried that I wouldn't be use to everything back home.


The weather for sure would be definitely much more humid than the unpredictable weather here in Michigan. One thing I don't mind it being sunny and hot, but I remember working in the cafeteria in a Hot and Humid day a couple of weeks ago and that was not fun at all...

What else? The random passerby strangers on the street would be different.
And why on earth would they matter to me?
Hmmm... I seriously think I would encounter one of there scenarios at least once in my stay in Malaysia. I might have the possibility of walking in a mall waiting for the person in front of me to hold the glass door for me, and it would funny if s/he did not and I would smash my head on the glass door because I wasn't paying attention.
OR lets look at it this way, I might just hold the glass door for some random people behind me and they would walk through and give me the weird look as if I work there to usher people in and they wouldn't even say thank you.
HAHA.... =.=

I know traffic would be a HUGE difference!
There is no doubt we do see crazy white girls driving as if they don't have a driving license once in a while but then its been a while since I have heard any crazy honking coming from bumper to bumper Traffic Jams. So I might just freak out in the middle of the road if impatient Malaysian drivers honk at me. ALSO, pedestrians are always right on the roads and drivers are usually very much courteous enough to let you pass before driving down the lane.

Dang, I think I'll be getting a BIG TIME CULTURE SHOCK when I go back home



***** On a lighter note*****

When I was still in Malaysia, my mom would always ask me to practice my singing in front of her. Her excuse would be "Because I like to hear your voice and I am your number one Fan!!"
When I was younger she would even pay me to play for her.
"Yenn, practice for 1 hour and I give you Rm5"
*sho shweet right? ~blink blink~
I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for her and I owe all my improvements to you Mommy.

So mom, after 10 months of not hearing me play and sing from the piano, here is what I have for you. Enjoy!!!



A Change In Me from Beauty and the Beast The Musical
Please ignore my rusty piano skills :)



I Know The Truth from Disney's Aida the Musical

Tell me what you guys think about videos and where should I improve on!!! :)
Have a great weekend!!!

Lets add more to the Randomness!!!
Lynn and I decided to go to the Music and Dance Building after our work on Friday Afternoon.
While helping Lynn with her preparation for her Beginning Jazz Dance finals, I decided to play around with the camera that I had with me.

One of the Leap combinations I did in my Jazz Boot Camp Class last semester. :)

And Yes, I do know that I look short and fat... but who cares?! muahahahaha*

It's 12.15am...
I guess everyone is tired of coming to my blog reading about how boring my pathetic life is right now huh?
This is where we bring BOREDOM to another level.

Carmen was bored on one random night and after making her usual funny animal noises, she walked over to our white marker board, cleaned the entire thing, and started a list.
Well, since she didn't know how to write Chinese characters, she used what we called
*HAN YU PIN YIN* instead.
(For people who don't know, Han Yu Pin Yin would be the way to pronounce a Chinese Word)

Lynn and I looked at the Marker Board and then decided to help her out. Lynn then wrote Chinese Characters on the Board and then wrote down the first thing that she wants to do.
Then of course all of us joined in with our random compulsive wants and even added cute little stick men sex positions on the board.
*Which was of course Carmen's doing... *wink wink*

At the end of the night 3 of us Lonely Bored Girls had 3 wishes on the Wish List.
Guess which belonged to who!

*The winner gets a peck on the cheek after I come back ;)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On a random note, I went to the Health Center in the University today because I was having an acute pain on my lower abdominals a few days ago.
After a whole long list of questions from "Explain the kind of pain" to "When was your last Sexual Intercourse" and many other private questions...
After performing a medical check on me, the doctor told me that I might have a Kidney Stone.
0.0

Why wouldn't I be surprised, I practically pee every half an hour and I DO have the capability of peeing in my underwear whenever I try to hold it. I just didn't know it will come this soon.

Thankfully, after more analyzing she diagnosed me with a Urinary Tract Infection.
But I would have to go back for more tests after a week.
*scared :(

Daily Routine from Monday to Thursday

Start of early in the morning at 10 am with Jogging Class for 40 minutes
Go to work at 11am to 2pm for money's sake
Go to Dance Class at 2pm to 4pm
Then its either I continue to work from 4pm to 7pm at the cafeteria or I practice singing and go home for a quick shower or power nap.
The routine ends with my practicum from 7.30pm to 10.30pm at night.

No doubt, I am a busy lady.
I am just so tired right now.

**********

I'm looking for a place
searching for a face
is anybody here i know
cause nothings going right
and everything's a mess
and no one likes to be alone

Isn't anyone tryin' to find me?
Won't somebody come take me home
It's a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Wont you take me by the hand
take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are
but I... I'm with you
I'm with you

oh why is everything so confusing
maybe I'm just out of my mind

It's a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Wont you take me by the hand
take me somewhere new
I dont know who you are
but I... I'm with you
I'm with you

Take me by the hand
take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are
but I... I'm with you
I'm with you

Dear Daddy Dearest,
Thank you for being there whenever we needed you.
Thank you for supporting me through ups and downs although I am a spoiled brat pain in the butt.
Thank you for your encouragements and love that you shower Lynn and I unconditionally.
I do not need to ask God to give you anything because He will reward you Himself for being the world's best daddy.

I love you daddy,
Happy Father's Day.

hugs & kisses, The mischievous one.
I am so freaking frustrated right now.
I just don't understand what the hell is wrong with everything around me.
Sometimes I just feel like dying and probably people who so called 'love' me would live happier without me hurting them or whatever fcuk they call it.
Seriously, if it being a small little misunderstanding can make you feel so disappointed how do you think I would feel? Especially coming from someone who is so close to me?
What the hell?
I don't feel like going home.
I just feel like running away. Far from you guys.
Cut the freaking ties and just go to rot in hell all by myself if you guys hate me for who I am.
Really, I am so depressed right now.
I am who I am and yes I agree I have stupid selfish characteristics that need to be changed, but really everyone does have their own freaking annoying habits and why don't you just let me know mine and give me time to change instead of doing this to me??
I am so freaking disappointed right now, I swear if I was alone in a high rise building I'll probably just jump down because what is the point?
All these bullshit coming from the people who are close to my heart.

I just wish that I can run away.

Life without my dear laptop= B O R E D O M

Thankfully I am having my practicum now so I'll stay on campus till approximately 11pm every weekday night so I won't be bored without my laptop. But what do I do after coming home to the lonely apartment with Lynn feasting her soul laughing and crying away with predictable Korean Dramas and Carmen either chatting away lovingly with her dear Ken or girlfriends who are all the way around the globe or busy typing her assignments?
Its either I take a shower and go straight to bed, hangout with some friends while who are obsessed with the current NBA games, try to get Lynn's attention by updating her all my daily happenings or lie on my bed sing to myself till I sleep.
Pretty pathetic?

Boy I sure do miss my stupid Dell Laptop.
I was streaming Memoirs of a Geisha when I accidentally downloaded the freaking ZANGO program that caused my poor baby to be infected with annoying Trojan viruses which completely fcuked up my internal files and everything else.
And now I have to beg Lynn to sacrifice a few episodes of Korean Dramas for me to do my assignments and to update my blog to keep my blog from dying.
*Thanks Lynn*

Lesson learned: NEVER EVER DOWNLOAD ANYTHING REGARDLESS OF HOW DESPERATE YOU ARE TO WATCH A MOVIE YOU'VE BEEN CRAVING TO WATCH FOR AGES.
*DANG, isn't that common sense? I have always been so careful about downloading stiff into my laptop but this one darn mistake really screwed things over.

On the other hand, here's my update on our Chicago Trip last Saturday!!


The City View of Chicago

Awesome structured buildings

The outdoor auditorium in the middle of a park.
Check out the designs and artistic structures of the auditorium!
Missycheerio, I wish you were here to share this with me......

And...... American girls sunbathing in the middle of the park.
*eye candy guys? :)

The Bean and I.
It was said that we would see the entire city by just looking at the reflection of the Bean in Millennium Park. And we did!

Bigsis Lynn and I.

Love this picture besides the humongous group of tourists in the bean taking pictures of themselves

Then it came my turn to camwhore

My slouchy Big sis and I. Check out the view behind us!!

The sampat Malaysian group

Charlie's Angels wannabe?
*yikes... not sexy enough... especially Lynn. ahahah

Michael Ng and the city

Love the picture although its super noisy

Lynn and I playing peekaboo in the middle of the garden

I'm still getting use to my camera settings.
And apparently it is not working out as nice as i thought it would be for this picture.

And we went to the famous PENANG MALAYSIAN CUISINE RESTAURANT for supper at 11pm.
*gosh.. it totally reminded me of yumcha sessions with my dear CheeWei and ChengChoo.
Check out the price of Roti Canai...
3.50 x 3.2 (after conversion rate) = FREAKING RM 11.20 (BEFORE TAX AND TIPS)

Oh my goodness, I knew that it was expensive but then I never actually did the calculations till 2 minutes ago and I am still so darn surprised.
Thankfully I'm going back in less than a month.
No doubt, I'm definitely going to eat Roti Canai till I lausai!!!
-.-"

Till then, Summer lovin!

My Laptop has just crashed on me.
Its invaded by stupid trojan viruses that switched my folders and screwed up my recovery file.

What should I do?
I can't reformat it without the Windows and Microsoft Program.
Should I just freaking send it to the IT center and pay freaking 50 bucks for them to reformat it for me?

*I am so annoyed. I can't even type my assignment at home.
computer experts...... I need your help here.

I guess there won't be any updates in a while until its repaired

Marriage
*To young to think about it?*


First scenario-

Friend #1 : I just got engaged!!!

Yenn: Really? Yay! Congrats! When are you getting married?

Friend #1 : In 3 months.

I have never heard people getting engaged so often in my entire life until I got here to the United States. I did wonder why how come so many girls have big diamond rings on their ‘ring’ finger until it came to the point that I actually thought that it was actually fashion (which WAS NOT).
I mean how can there be so many people engaged at our age, am I not right?

The first person who told me that she was married was a 20 year old angmoh friend. She was flashing her diamond ring at my face while telling me about the wedding plans and who she was going to invite and all the other details.
While I was thinking to myself

“Whoa… I am going to be 20 in a couple of months and I can’t imagine myself getting married to someone at her age. I mean even if I really did love that special someone, how can one be ready to spend their entire lives together for the next 100 years at the age of 20?”

No offense but really, will they divorce in a few years for rushing in too fast?

Or maybe I still have not found that special someone that’s why I doubt their relationship will last. Or, I am just being a typical conservative Asian.

* haha… I bet some of you readers might be laughing when you read I AM JUST BEING A TYPICAL CONSERVATIVE ASIAN because Sue-Yenn and conservative just don’t match
But really, compared to the Americans I am pretty conservative.

Okay, back to the topic.

Second scenario-

Friend #2 : I just got engaged!!!

Yenn: Really?! Yay! Congrats! So how did you meet him?

Friend #2 : Its an arranged marriage.

Yenn: What?!?!?!?!


I didn’t know arranged marriages still exist?! Are you for real?

I wouldn’t want to be freaking forced to marry some weird guy. I would rather run away from home and marry a beggar that I am in love with than a guy that I have no chemistry with and am forced to marry. Who freaking does that in the 21st century?!

Third scenario-

Yenn: So how do you feel about marrying someone that your parents chose for you?

Friend #3: Actually it is not that bad, it is more like an ONLINE DATING SERVICE except the online agents are your parents.

Yenn: *looks at her with jaws touching the floor*
You’re kidding me right? How does it work?

Friend #3: Well basically we just tell them what we want in a husband and then they’ll search for the ‘perfect guy’ for us.

Yenn: Har!! So weird, I cannot imagine my mom choosing a boyfriend for me, let alone a husband?! So you marry him right after that?

Friend #3: Of course not. We’re living in the 21st century lah*

Yenn: Yeah right 21st century still need your parents to look for husband for you?

Friend #3: *looks at me as if I was super Kampung*
We date after knowing who the ‘guy’ is. My fiancé is in Australia now, we’re just exchanging photos and emails and we talk on the phone. We have been doing that for a while before we got engaged. It’s like a relationship.

Yenn: Wait, you still haven’t tell me how the parents thing work!

Friend #3: I told my parents that I want someone who can speak English and is tall. So my parents went and look for a guy who fits the criteria.

Yenn: Owh… Sweet.


I kinda think that the parents thing ain’t that a bad idea either because usually after getting together with someone special,
the most important people to like your partner would be your parents because they do play a big part ESPECIALLY after getting married.

PLUS, you get to date!! So if you don’t like him… dump!! *evil laughter*

You definitely can’t deny the fact that you know someone who are in bad terms with their Monster… I mean Mother-in-law, right?

Plus, I know that my mom would definitely find me a rich and handsome guy…

*Laugh my ass off*

Sigh… I am too young to think about all this wedding-I-love-you-forever stuff.

I’ve got so darn many years ahead, a steady job, a car, and probably an apartment to think about.

All I know is I want to have a wedding song written and performed by my future husband and I OR a kind of ballroom dance, either Tango, Foxtrot or Waltz.

Too demanding?

Lol, I think I just scared my future husband away… boohoo (if he ever reads this)

*smirks*

*

*

*

*

*

I think I’ll just marry a gay guy lah… so I can get my Green card.

Ps. just kidding

~xoxo~

A quick and short update on last week.

A new member has been added unto the PaiKia Family!

Presenting 8 week old Bichapoo Sir Ruffle Casper Chong
As adorable and tiny as he is , oh my freaking goodness he is so darn cute and smart!!

The Bichon mixed Toy Poodle is so small that we could fit him in Lynn's Madeline Coach Bag

Pity the picture is blur. I am still learning and getting use to my Sony T300

Loving him my little puppy boyfriend.
He really reminded me of Lucky.
They look almost the same except he is way tinier and Lucky's face is more proportionate.
(Lucky's eyes are bigger :)

Little Ruffle falling asleep on Wilson.
*love this picture

Camwhore with the T300

Yay to fat legs and arms

Baru bangun and mandi punya muka..

I think I have been working very hard for the past few months in the cafe and I thought that it was time for me to get my first Coach. And since I could not afford a bag and I need a new purse, I got a clutch instead. Just nice to fit my cards, house keys and even my handphone.
Plus it was 40% off!!

Yippeee..... I am officially pimply, broke and fat..
Haha.. cannot get married adi. LoL
