Sunday 12pm is the time of the competition. Finally a big event here in UBC.
We are gonna rock the wal!!

Think back to those few months I was here, I actually tried around 50 restaurant all over Canada. Thats a great number I guess. Shall increase the number more.
Everything is fine, so far so good.
And most importantly, happy because spring is here :)

42 days =)

So it is a raining day, which is not a strange day for Vancouver.

The showers doesnt make the day cold, its like 6°C.

So I went to run in this 33 trails park which cover as big as 763 hectares of land.
The name of the park is Pacific Spirit Regional Park.
Its always wonderful to have a park or beach around your campus because you can always find peace in this kind of places after the torturing of those midterms and assigments.

I must say that the park is big, even bigger than UBC itself.
So I started off by going into one of the trail, which i dun even know which trail it is.
So it goes, one trail after another one trail after another and on and on and on.
Coz I feel like if I want to stop, there must be someway out for me.
And even if I meet an dead end, I can always turn back.
That apply to life as well isnt it?
Then I recalled a time when I was still in Secondary school and the first Gold Medal I ever got in my life. I admit that I am not a good runner, I never was.
The day before the competition was tough for me, I even count the probability of me winning then race.
It comes out zero.

Because I am the youngest runner among them all, physically and mentally.
At first I was aiming to become the second runner up of the race. Which at least I can still get a medal anyway.

But when the harsh word come to my ear, I know that I shouldnt be so scare.
"Those who dunno how to run better leave the field now."
It stung.
I know I was the one who was "being not knowing how to run but still on the field".
So I said I must win the race.
Well, it turns out that I managed to win those well-experienced runner. And for the 800m race the next few days.
They dare not to show up anymore. Because they know they have made a mistake.
Big one.

This moulded me.
I am not a very big fans of luck, and I know the more I do, the more I will get.

I always love the feeling of being in a team.

Every accomplishments starts with the decision to try
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?

And there is a very great quote that I love
"If you cant excel with talent, triump with effort"- Dave Weinbaum.

For my frens who just get their STPM and SPM result, good luck in everything.

And oh ya! 49days away from home.

River Flows In You - Yiruma

I had never posted any song into my blog, because I think the autoplay function will make people feel bad when they are in my blog.

But now I do
The song is so like me
Its kinda like my mood right now.
Lost the direction of life and kinda in limbo for everything, what do I really want in my life?
The music is sort of like a people struggle in a forest, sometimes he sees hope, sometimes he dun.

And thats me right now.

The river flows is in me, so calm in the surface, but yet there is turbulent flow underneath.

Something happened this few days that inspired me to write this post

I always want to thanks my mum, she is always the most important figure in my life
I remember a time when I called her after the english test.
I told her I am definitely not going to pass it.

She told me "Its ok, A is not everything, make sure you give ur best in every test then its enough"

I dun have the courage to tell the world that I failed the test that time. Because I know I can never put the blame on anyone but myself.

And yet, I am glad that I have family members that never put pressure on my studies. Not like they dun care. But they want me to enjoy my life and study whenever I want to.

I guess this is one of the reason why I am me. I study whenever I want to and enjoy my life whenever I feel like it.

Because I know life is short and in one blink, or maybe one next second, we wont be in this world anymore.

I always wanted to do something in my life. I try to be different.
Or should I say I want to be different?

Whenever there is obstacles in life, I will say it will lead to good things in the end. I applied it even in some small matter in life. Its all for the best

Ask my friends,

If I missed a bus, I wont curse the driver and blaming myself for not running faster to catch the bus. Instead, I know it will change the whole story of life. I know everything happened for a reason. Thus, regret is not in my dictionary, because I know regret will do nothing good for your life, even a little.

As KP say "We have to live with our mistake"
When mistake is done, what we need to do is accept it.
Only he/she who does nothing won't makes a mistake
here is to you,
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

This remind me of a close friend of mine,
he failed a test for three times and he doesnt say no to life.
He told me
"I already did my best"
Thats the spirit we should have in life.
So go for it. And make sure you wont hold any regret of your life.

For better or worse, I am sure it will lead to something unexpected, and maybe, better

Well Well, should post some pictures of what I was doing for few weeks before this.

I finally went to Vancouver not-so-tall looking tower. I mean thats the only thing you can do to get to know one city right? Go to a higher place and have some sunset photo, then go down again. Well, It might not be as tall as other building, but I got some special feeling about this city night view because I had spend half year in this city and still counting!

This is probably the best shoot of the day, the white egg like building is BC place Stadium

You might say its pretty tall, but not after u see the comparison between this tower with the other tallest buildings in the world.

Yes, not even longer than your little finger

I tried one of a new thing in my life, LASER TAG. At first we thought we were the oldest among the people there. But it turns out that there is an older guy in his 50s who named himself as "terrorist X" won the game. Yea, older ginger is always hotter. Guess he spent a lot of time there shooting children.

Good thing is, I keep on improving in those three games, it ended up with I ranked as 4th place among some old wolves. Frankly, kids are easy target. And it was fun fun fun!
We four stay in a group and kept shooting whoever came into our territory, its a better way to win the game because some random guy will just bump into us and we will earn extra point by shooting them. Pity them.

The ranking make me so proud. lol. After all, its not really expensive, three games for $18. Each game for 20 mins

So here are some random pictures.
Like seriously random!

I managed to impersonate 盧廣仲, its kinda good to share. I guess.

This one was inspired by my brother. He said middle cut hair will make you looks like Yoga lin
No comment on this picture please, its just for fun

Tell me i dun look like 林亞珍 anymore, please. I change my hair line to the right already

Just some quick update,
I feel very very contented here. Its just couple of weeks more from going back to Msia.
Some people ask me why I go to classes that I am not into
And the reason is I like the feeling of knowing that I am still not as knowledgable as I thought.
Looking at those unknown formula on the blackboard make me realize that I had so much to learn in life!
I set up quite a lot of travel plans during this summer because I know there might not be chances for me to go those places again.
Once I graduated from U, I will need to work, work, work hard, harder, hardest.
Then I will have family, need to strive for promotion, no holiday, OT on Sunday. Then what?
I am old and I cant walk anymore.
Whats the point of that kind of life?
So now I remind myself always:"Wake up you, you are missing out! There's something called life"
Till then, good luck every SPM-ians and STPM-ians.
Especially you, and you :)

Being in this world well-known University, I always questioning.

First thing first, what can be more compliances than grades in University?
The purpose of University had changed from an institution of exchanging and sharing knowledge to a place that marks is everything.

Coming to this University, I found out that some people are just too busy to conform themself. For example the second generation Chinese here, their parent are too busy to suit into this society where they forget to teach their children about their heritability. And so they lost their own culture by trying to fit into this land in every possible way.

There is a very old opinion inside everyone's head

"if you behave properly, you will get property"

I did have some sleepless nights thinking about what I want later in my life.
Its kinda funny that from the start I dun even know how to spell psychology. I used to spell it as "physcology".

By choosing this way, I know I can't build physical bridges to connect Penang to Seberang Perai.
But I can build mental bridges between people.

By choosing this way, I know its impossible to count how much material needed to build another twin tower.
But I can help the worker and the construtor to do better and faster.

Being here, I always try to think ahead of my age, understand the system, and conform when it suits me to conform. I never admit that I am a loser in my life, even once.
I see how different people act compare to the place where I was born
I see how different people talk compare to the mamak language I used to heard a lot.

I have seen so many things here even I cant believe that I got the chance to see it in my life. I see how cruel people could be when they have no choice. I see how people betrayed me and thinking that its not a bad thing at all.

I also see how people devalue other's property and feel like its something they can take for granted.

When people ask about what is the definition of FRIENDS?
I would say I dunno last year, I guess they are the people who treat you good and love you.
But then this half year changed me

The formula in my heart had changed.
I used to treat everyone good in every possible way without hoping any payback.
But now, I will only treat people who treat me good double good. And in turn treat people who treat me bad double bad.

When I am in class and sitting in the front row, I will concern about whether or not the people behind me can see the lecture note or not. Then I will try to stay still as long as I can because I scare that one movement will distract them. When something bad happen, I will offer my help first because I know sometimes its hard for people to ask for help. I dun really care when people are taking advantage of me, but if that action push me into a self-harming situation, I will resist. I was living for others for such a long period. And now, I wish to live for myself more.

I dun give a damn in those friendship anymore, because I know it doesnt worth it anyway.
And in the end, love is not always truthful, it need to be deceitful sometimes so that people like me will eventually realize and say,

"I was such a dumb"

And now, not anymore

Here to share a line in Harry Potter that I found very meaningful

"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up against up to our friends."

Professor Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Malaysia Singapore Night 2009 was great. The performance overall is good. I mean how often will you get to hear Malay song in white dominated country right?

The food is not bad too.
Mee Hun goreng, Lemang, Rendang chicken......
And of course most importantly, the main course for the day is. This little thing.
It does taste like Mamak. I mean seriously.
