in a state of shock and denial.

Everything comes to an end. Even the good stuff. I wanted to rant, I mean blog about this sooner because I know I just have to say something, but I had to finish up my assignments first. Priorities people. now everything is all said and done, I finally have time to wail and cry my hearts out.sobs*

As most die hard fans would probably know by now, our beloved 1N2D will be ending after six months....excuse me....(tissue break). I really don't know how to respond to this news BUT I do know that it is better to go out with a bang than dying a slow and painful death.

Its a sad sad day in variety land, but we still have six months. After that, get ready to watch re-runs of our favorite ajusshi's and seunggi oppa.

I personally think the kpop scene is filled with cheese and cliche's. Although, I have to say, thanks to all the plastic surgery they got, the industry is filled with pwetty and gowgeous people. And those close to me know that I am like a moth attracted to the light when it comes to eye candies. BUT, this show genuinely captured my heart because of the real reality and the fact that its not a scripted show at all.

All the best to the members and production crews. All of you will be missed terribly. WAILS*

I will survive this. Miki, we will survive this together girl! New and better things will come, but none for sure will replace these six crazy people in our hearts. keep it together teng! *runs into room. slams door.WAILS*

Reflection Entry Five

My Funniest Moment.

Truth be told, for the past 20 years of my life, I have had so many moments that were funny, sometimes hilarious and down right embarrassing. Some were forgettable, some not so forgettable. If I had to choose one, well let's see, which one would it be?

I guess it would be the moment(s) when I pulled a prank on my younger siblings. More than once I pulled the same prank on each of my siblings especially my youngest sister and little brother. You see, my idea of a prank is scribbling Mr.Potato mustache on their faces, and adding a Jack Sparrow eye liner, and then snapping picture of them and posting them on Facebook. Yes, I am that kind of big sister.

There was this one time, I just got back from Kuala Lumpur, so of course I was missing my siblings so much, but when I arrived home, it was very late, and they were all asleep already. So, I looked around for a marker, but couldn't find one, then I went through my sister's makeup box, and found an eye liner. The rest, as they say was history.

I was trying so hard to laugh quietly because I didn't want to wake them up, and went to bed happily. When they woke up in the morning, they were so happy to see me, then all of a sudden everyone else laughed at my youngest sister because of her face. It was truly a happy moment for me because not only was I reunited with my family, but we also had someone to laugh at. And that someone was not me.

This may not seem funny enough to some, but to me, I laughed so hard it felt like I was burning more calories than when I went jogging. I wish I could post the pictures I took, but seeing that my siblings are all grown up, I'm afraid they might sue me for public humiliation. Am I not the best big sister, or what?

Reflection entry Four

How do you learn from others?

Learning is a never ending process. We began when we were toddlers and still continue to this day. It doesn't matter how old or how young you are, learning is something we all have the rights to do. For most of us that were fortunate enough to be given the chance to learn, cherish it. Knowledge is the one thing that can get you through life, victoriously.

Having said all that, HOW do you learn? Scratch that. Let me revise my question. How do you learn from OTHERS? We may not see it, but most of the time, we learn through others. The easiest example would be, learning from our teachers and lecturers.

Unfortunately, people have been divided between the ones with good grades and the ones with bad grades. Which is very typical all around the world. Which is also something that needs to be changed. We were all born with a brain, therefore, we were all born intelligent. No one is born to be stupid. It is just a matter of what kind of intelligence you posses.

Take me for example. If you ask me mathematical questions, it would feel like you're asking me to solve the hunger crisis. But if you ask me to make a rhyme or read out loud a tongue twister, it would feel like eating a piece of cake (not to exaggerate, but I'm being very humble here). Why? Because apparently I am a linguistic person.

So, how do I learn from other people that posses other intelligence? Free tutorials. By free tutorials I meant by observing them closely. That's how I do it, at least personally. Also, never shy away from asking questions about anything that you cannot understand. Trust me, it is better to ask than forever be in the dark. A simple "How do you do that?" might result in you being able to bake a cake. Or being able to drive a manual car. Do not be scared of 'stupid questions'. No such thing.

Even after graduating from college, the learning process will still go on. Never stop learning because knowledge is a man's ultimate weapon.

Reflection Entry Three

Natural Disaster.

Contrary to popular beliefs, the world is not made of cotton candies and puppies (my inner three year old self might have died reading that line). The reality is that our world is a harsh place and can be really mean to us human when it wants to. Can't say we blame it since we are the ones living off from it, right?

So when disasters like earthquakes, tornado, volcanic eruption, and many more happens, what more can we do than adapt to it and try to avoid death and loss as much as we can? It's not always rainbows and sunshine. We sure have learned that the hard way. Mostly through recent incidents like the 2006 tsunami, and March 11 earthquake that struck Japan.

Natural disasters are a thing of nature. Mostly it cannot be stopped, but massive lost can be avoided, if we just take the time to implement necessary precautions. Sometimes, that's all we need to save a life.

Us Malaysians should feel grateful because our country is spared from most natural disaster, but that doesn't mean that we must not be on our toes, because nature is unpredictable, we never know what its got in store for us.

All we can do is, treat mother nature, the way we want her to treat us back.

Reflection Entry Two

Growing Up.

And YOU thought life was hard?

Nick Vujicic will forever be an inspiration for me to strive in life and keep living to the fullest. I absolutely cannot imagine being born into this world with no limbs, but he was, and somehow he managed to live a life much more meaningful than most of us with a perfect pair of arms and legs. Shame on us.

Growing up, all I can say is that I am one lucky girl. We may not live in a mansion, but we are not living in a broken down hut either. We may not eat lavish dinners, but we are not scrapping for a bite to eat either. We may not have a Ferrari, but we are not walking on foot either. All in all, I have a pretty darn good life, and I'm certainly not complaining. Especially after I heard the story of one Nick Vujicic.

Growing up, I have met a lot of different people. Some I respect, some I cringe even at hearing their names. Growing up means you grow out of your old habits. The bad ones. When you get older, you are suppose to act more mature. So when I meet someone older than me, but acts worse than a five year old, I cringe for that someone and hope to dear God for them to change before it gets too late.

When I was younger, I would say when I grow up, I want to be this, I want to have that. Now that I am older, I see myself changing and now I want to be that and I want to have this. This realization made me realize that the world is a stage, and we are merely its players. We can plan and want all we want, but it all happens only if God wills it.

So, when you meet people like Nick, don't feel bad for them, cause they never did. In fact, feel bad for those that cannot cherish life and live a meaningless life. When you meet ungrateful people like these, say it to their face, get a life and count your blessing.
