HEYA PEOPLE! I know you guys are half hating me now. Sorry peeps, my laptop was down for the past 3 weeks as most of you would know if you read my blog in the past 3 weeks. Don't blame me, blame the "professionals". Even after I got it back, I recovered my C drive back to the original factory settings cause all they did was to install a new OS over my last one. WTF.

Anyways, I shall leave that behind me and make a note NEVER EVER to go back there again even if it's the last repair shop in the world. I'd so much rather look for Yan Hao or Joe (taiwan guy here that knows how to fix laptops, and I only knew the day I got my laptop back.....).

Well, the past few weeks were rather boring, I don't think I will be putting up many pictures at all, cause half of them are in my mum's laptop as my camera ran out of space in gold coast and I had no where to store the photos. Gold Coast was totally awesome!! Didn't really go anywhere other than Sea World and Movie World. Loved sea world to bits! But MW was rather boring to me. I spent the rest of the time sleeping, eating, toilet-ing and just enjoying the company of me parents.

Then I went to sunshine coast with the school the other day. Not gonna elaborate about it though, rather boring, but if you wanna know, just ask. ^^

Rushing through the english seminar project now. I have to edit some scripts by correcting any mistakes and making them shorter. That's not much either. Then my Physics assignment is due tomorrow at 8pm and I only have 7 questions left. Had 2 weeks to do it, but cause of my laptop, I only started like...yesterday or something. Gotta hand in the Biology research plan too, and let me tell you. I haven't even started. XD The plan would take probably an hour of my time doing relevant research.

And some photos that I uploaded onto DeviantArt after I settled my laptop. (Yan Hao says I am siao. XD)

Let's celebrate my 500th post!!! ^.^"

LOLS. I know you guys looove me alright. Don't deny it. >.<"

Anyways, that was taken when I was bored on the bus as you can probably tell. And they are also up on friendster.
Today's the last day of school and I have holidays for a week! WHOOTS! Then I have Bio test on Monday! ">.> Then on Friday I have Maths test! <.<"
Hmmmm, so totally bored. OH and thanks to Yan Hao I got a free chocolate bunny today. Cause my English teacher (Duncan) was asking us to finish the quote "An eye for an eye..." and some people guessed a tooth for a tooth but it was wrong so I remembered what Yan Hao once said to me and went "MAKES THE WORLD BLIND!!!" so it was correct and I got the chocolate bunny. Which looks like this:

And that is not my finger! It's Vanessa's.

Well, that's about it for the update. Bye!

New blogskin is up people! I think you all probably noticed right? Hahas. Well, I was supposed to be working on a skin for someone else, but then, it became a little too girly, so well, I made it into my own cause I am in need to a blogskin change. Any comments ya'll?

Well, the left side is smaller than usual by about 20px? It doesn't make much of a difference except to the video size cause it has to fit in there. I rather like this and I think it's gonna stay fo at least half a year. ^.^"

Anyways, tomorrow is the last day of school! I finished my Chem and Physics assignment today. Many thanks to Jessica, Wing, Isabel and Tham for helping me!!! Now, I have to start working on my projects for Phy, Chem, Bio and English. Let me tell you the topics I am working on:-

Physics- Optical Dating Vs. Carbon Dating
Chemistry- Fireworks and how the colors are formed, which chemials are used (and so on)
Biology- Single-gene mutations
English- Euthanasia. Which is like a vet putting a dog to "sleep" only that this is to humans.

Pretty happy with these cause they are quite interesting to me, especially Biology and English.

And if you haven't seen the google map on how to get from New York to London, click on this LINK HERE. Pay close attention to step 23. Hahas.

Well, that's about it now! Going to see mum and dad on Saturday! WHEEE!!!!!

OH, and a shot I took today in my Homestay house.

I was laughing my ass off yesterday when I went to SIA to book my plane tickets for July the 1st. Cause we were like "Hmmm, where is Chiang Mai?" And Jessica went to the world map and looked for Chiang Mai, then she looked for Brunei and then Singapore and her reaction was this "EH! KARIE KARIE!! Singapore is wiped out! It's missing?!!!!!" I was like "Whha?" And then I saw that Singapore was like a big white space on the map cause people kept pointing to it or something and we were literally wiped out by fingers, and then the only things left were "G-A-P-O-R-E". So Jessica was like "GAPORE!!! Karie! You have a country! GAPOUR!!!" -.-"....

Then when I paid for the ticket, I paid most of it in cash and wanted to play the rest by EFTPOS (NETS in SG) but I exceeded my limit for the day so I end up paying in cash, then 100 by EFTPOS and Jessica paid the rest with her EFTPOS. So we were like using 2 cards and cash just for 1 damn ticket that costed $1325.20 or something.

Then while having dinner, I saw this new broadcast that there was a tsunami at the Solomon's Islands and I think it's near queensland so some people that lived nearer to the coast were like packed and ready to leave and the schools were closed for the day. And my mum called me and went like "YING XUAN! GOT TSUNAMI??!!!" And I went "Errr..ya, but not here..." and my mum was like "YOU NEVER CALL ME to say you are okay!" "BUT NOT HERE TSUNAMI IS SOLOMON THERE!" LOLZ.

So fun yesterday. And I have not finished my Chem and Physics homework that is due tomorrow. CRAP. BYE!

Hi! Welcome to my blog.

This is the area where I rant and rave about everything and anything going on in my life.

If you are looking for recipes, the links to each single recipe will be located before the archives, just scroll down a little.

Usually, I talk about what's been going on in my life, my cooking, or my latest buys/holiday trips.

Time to time, I will introduce new websites that I find interesting, and online shopping haunts.

I make my own blogskins, and I do submit them onto You can find them HERE

Thats about it!
