Hi guys. I have to admit something: I haven't been on LJ for weeks now ... I just lost interest in posting and am focusing on other things now. :( So after a lot of thought, I've decided to stop posting here permanently. I’ll still come by to randomly drop comments on your journals every now and then LOL but this will most probably be my last post here.
I’d just like to thank all of you for being such a great flist. I have never met anyone here in RL but I’ve gotten to know some of you a little better over the years and I’ll always be grateful for that.
Okay, enough sappiness.
I wish everyone all the best and take care, you guys. *hugs*
Signing off for the last time,
I'll do a proper post sometime soon, but for now I just want to wish m'dear flist:
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS + A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
May 2008 be a good year for all of you. *hugs*
Tiny update: I'm doing well and I'm starting my new job next week which I'm getting nervous about but hopefully *fingers crossed* it will go okay.
Bleugh I'm sick. And tired.
March + April basically = no life for me so once again, I'll be taking a break from posting until early May. I'll probably log on once in a while and leave random comments when you're least expecting it LOL but other than that, I'll be MIA for these two months. Please wish me luck for this horror period of time which should sufficiently torture me and inflict lots of stress. I'm going to need it. XD
So flist, please don't cut me for not commenting, take care and be good. *hugsyouall*
I am currently enjoying a four day weekend (yesterday was a public holiday and I’m on leave today). Bliss.
New header and user profile
. Me, obsessed with PB? Nah. XD I can’t stop staring at my WeSah profile because it is teh pretty (I didn’t make it, of course. =P). <3
I just watched the pilot of Heroes last Wednesday. I don’t really have any opinion on anything yet because I’ve just watched one ep so far but for now, I’m more interested in the storylines of the following characters: Claire, Peter, Hiro.
Oh, I also made a lot of icons too. I always say I’m going to stop making them but they’re such an addiction and I can’t stop myself. *sighs*( The purse girl hits everything on my check list. Creamy skin, straight teeth, curly hair, amazing breasts. Not for me, for my children. The Schrutes produce very thirsty babies.Collapse )
I think I've found THE most kickass and perfect
PB video EVER on You Tube. LINK
Even for those of you who have never watched Prison Break
before and have no clue what it's about, I can (almost) guarantee that you'll at least be curious about watching the show after this video. It's that
good, IMHO anyway. The timing of the clips and the clips themselves fit the lyrics so well
and it literally gave me goosebumps. GOOSEBUMPS, people. That hardly happens. So yeah, hope you guys will watch it because of its sheer awesomeness. Warning though: it has tons of Season 2 clips and spoilery stuff. :)
This video, plus reading the new spoilers on amber_protocol
's journal ... PB so owns me at the moment. <3 Season 2 needs to start airing, like NOW.
- listening to:Chris Daughtry "It's Not Over"
Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. :D I had a quiet, but nice birthday so yayz. My cake was yummy (chocolate fudge with chocolate chips and walnuts) but it made everyone feel a bit ill and swear off cake and/or chocolate at least for a while, lol).
*counts* Six days until my exam. Ack! *headdesk* I'm taking a mini hiatus until end of next week, I think. Gotta get my head in the game.
- listening to:Anastacia "Heavy"
*points to pretty, new Danny Messer moodtheme* <3
Is anyone else having problems accessing Fanforum
? It’s being a major pain in the ass at the moment and won’t load at all.
I’m having a five day weekend at the moment and I can’t even enjoy it because I have to study for my mock exam which is next weekend. And I’m pretty sure I’m going to SUCK in this exam. *sighs*
I made more icons... shocker! right? ;)( … I really like you. A lot.Collapse )

We would like to know who really believes in gay rights on Livejournal. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights, then repost this and title the post as "gay rights". If you don't believe in gay rights, then just ignore this. Thanks.
Okay so far, I’ve only watched 4 eps of The Office
but OMFG, SO MUCH LOVE
. It reminds me a lot
of (R.I.P!) Arrested Development
. Both shows are understatedly hillarous, and the jokes are so subtle in its humour but yet SO FUNNY. The lines do not sound
all that funny, but the actors/actresses deliver them so well. Honestly, if anyone isn’t watching these two shows, you are seriously missing out.[/end pimping] And Jim/Pam? They’re one of those couples you kinda want
to hate just because everyone LOVES them but you just can’t because they’re just so damn adorable together. Also, can I have my own Jim Halpert please? Pretty pretty PLEASE? Question: How do you stop your comp from converting all images into BMP images? My lame ass comp has been doing that recently (and even better, so is my work comp) and it’s driving me crazy. For JPG and PNG images, it’s fine because I have PSP and can convert it back from there but I hate not being able to save oh so pretty GIF icons. Help!
I’m on leave today so I went to get my hair rebonded and then tomorrow, I’ll be going out with my work friends. Yayz. :D I am SO broke though (the rebonding is pretty expensive and I spent a lot on work clothes this month). Sunday will probably SUCK though, because I took my first exam a few weeks ago and at first I *thought* I did fine, but I found out a couple of mistakes I made so the results will be given out and I will feel like crap. Ugh.
I bought a bunch of DVDs during my trip but so far I’ve only watched one : Brokeback Mountain. Pretty good/intense movie. Jake and Heath played their characters so well. I have yet to watch:
(a) Pride and Prejudice
So… which one should I watch first?
And yeah, I made icons. A LOT of them. I actually really like this batch of icons. *g* Many thanks to the icon tutorials (all listed in the credit section of my site here
). Please comment
if taking any. Credit is nice but optional:
Arrested Development (25)
High School Musical – Cast (10)
The Office: US (23)
Veronica Mars (5)
One Tree Hill (7)
Brandon Routh (2)
CSI: New York (8)
**Disclaimer about the Naley icons: I basically loathe the pairing but strangely enough, I find James/Joie very photogenic and hence the icons. So there.( Can I trust Jim? I don't know. Do I have a choice? No. I think, I don't. Will I trust Jim? Yes. Should I trust Jim? You tell me.Collapse )
I have a new layout. Woot. Check it out notofthisearth
. My new OTP are so unbelievably adorable together: Danny/Lindsay from CSI: NY
. Their chemistry is amazing and what can I say, I’m a sucker for bantering, snarky couples. AND they like to eat bugs together. <<3 Funny, I ship other CSI pairings but this is the ship that I’ve definitely fallen hook, line and sinker for.
Okay sorry guys, but I have to vent about something. Yesterday, when I was driving to work this complete moron of a driver pissed me off so much. First he was tailgating me. Fine, no big deal because I saw that he could signal into the fast lane and overtake me. But no, this genius had to overtake me and then swerve dangerously back into my lane, and make me freak out and brake a little. *insert multiple curse words here* And if that wasn’t enough, he (I think, on purpose) slowed down a LOT. When I say slowed down, I mean he was going like 40 km per hour. GAH. And then I cut out to the fast lane to avoid the moron and then guess what he does? The exact moment I cut out, he very abruptly overtook me again
, just to piss me off. I’m telling you, people like these induce a violent streak in me.
BUT this brings me to a more positive note, yes I have been driving. On my own. For a grand total of a week. I know this sounds lame but this is big for me, because for the longest time I’ve been paranoid about driving alone because driving just seemed like such a dangerous thing. Putting your life on the line, especially with the kinds of drivers out there. But I’m glad I finally got over it and even though I’m still nervous on the road, at least now I don’t have to depend on other people for transport and I can get to work on my own. And I *love* my car. I can definitely see how some people are attached to their car. It's perfect and I feel like I'm in total control because it's not too bulky but not too small either. One downside is the disturbing amount of money I'm going to spend on the car. The installments, petrol, parking and toll are going to cost me nearly a thousand each month, I think. Good God.
Other than that, work is fine. I am slowly warming up to most of the people at work. At first, they were like, “Sarah why are you always so quiet?” Me, quiet? *bursts into laughter* Well, that’s how I am in the beginning. Little do they know that once I start talking, I never shut up. :P But still, there are certain people that I’d gladly spend as little time with as possible. Ahem.
Lastly, I made tons of new icons. Most of them are textless because well, I suck
at text and anyway, I think some of these actually work better without text. The usual applies. DO NOT HOTLINK. Comment. Credit.

.( What’s to see? It’s wheat.Collapse )
I'm posting from the office on a Sunday. Nuff said.
I'll come on once in a while but in all likelihood, I'll be gone from the Net until early May. So... don't cut me for not commenting, take care and be good! :)
CNY is over. *sobs* More importantly, the holidays are over. Overall, it was an okay week. We got visits from relatives and friends, the open house went well and I probably put on a few pounds from all the sugary goodness I had all week LOL. And oh, we got so much chocolate as gifts! There are about 6 or 7 different types for me to choose from. Mmm.
Oww. My shoulder hurts. :( Again, I don’t know why that is, but it’s been pretty sore on and off for a while now. It feel okay right now but I just know the pain’s coming back soon. Argh.Things I Did With My First Salary
• Bought the Garden State
DVD because I saw it at Movie Magic
and remembered hearing about how brilliant it is. I haven’t watched it though.
• Gave my parents RM250 each. Obviously, that’s nothing compared with what they’ve given to me over the years because they’re such amazing parents but I still wanted to give something
back to them. And I made them promise to spend it all on themselves and NOT my siblings or me LOL.
• Bought four tops, a jacket, a pair of pants and court shoes for work. The tops were so bloody cheap (less than RM80 for all) and I picked them out in 10 minutes or so. Heh I love bargains.
• Got two birthday presents for my friends. There’s this really great shop in Wan U
that has beautiful jewellery so I bought two necklaces from there.
Speaking of my friends, we went out on Tuesday. I got there early because I hadn’t had any time before that to buy presents. So I did that, met Suet Nee and we walked around a bit while waiting for Maheran to turn up. We went to Chilli’s
for lunch and everything was delicious and we were opening up presents like it was Christmas LOL (I got my very belated present from Maheran… a pretty sequined turquoise top and I finally gave her the souvenir I bought for her in Australia) when POOF! The whole mall had a blackout. Terence was in the cinema watching the geisha movie so I called him and luckily he had watched most of it when the lights went out. He had some lunch and went home first since there was no way he could watch the ending. The lights came back on after about 15 minutes and we resumed exploring the mall and shopped for stuff. I miss just hanging out with them because now we’re all busy and can’t see each other much so it was awesome to catch up with them.
I think that almost everyone in the LJ fandom has heard of this already but if you didn’t… This person
) faked her death in LJ, so people actually believed she died of tuberculosis and mourned over her. But then someone got suspicious and did some digging around and found out that she was faking all of it
. Her journal was filled with (presumably) so many angry comments that she had to close it down. *sigh* LJ can be such a weird/disturbing place sometimes. That’s all I’m saying about this.
Could David Anders look any finer in a suit
?!!! *drools uncontrollably* More pics here
He makes me want to watch Alias
again. Almost.Meme time.

1. What's the first word that comes to mind when you think of me?
2. Go to http://images.google.com/
and search for that word.
3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results (don't tell me the word right away let me guess at it).
4. Put this in your own blog so that I can do the same.
Does anyone watch Las Vegas
? I’m slowly but surely starting to love the show, although Delinda= much dislike. She annoys the hell out of me. She doesn’t do much, and her oblivion to almost everything around her usually gets the other staff into trouble and I’m sorry but a grown woman who still calls her father “Daddy” just seems childish. The rest of the cast are awesome and non-annoying though. And it doesn’t hurt that the lead male character is possibly one of the prettiest/hottest guys ever to appear on television. Mmm Josh Duhamel is so fine.
I’ve made another friends’ cut
… a pretty small one this time though. *feels all guilty again*
Ugh. I’m almost completely satisfied with my flist right now. Okay. Off I go (soon). I shall go attempt to
read some Public Rulings that I have to know for work purposes.
- listening to:Garbage "Push It"
I'm at work. But I have nothing to do right now. So. This is long overdue anyway.
Between work, chores, time with family & friends, I really don’t have much time to be online/on LJ anymore so I’ve been finding it hard keeping up with you guys
. And I don’t like that because I’d rather have less people on my list if it means I can read most of my flist entries. If I’m lucky I get back home at 7-ish, have dinner then plop down on the couch until 10 something when it’s time for bed. So I basically don’t come on LJ until the weekends or unless I’m still awake on weeknights.
To everyone I cut, I’m sorry. I just have to trim down my flist … like I’ve said before this isn’t personal but for some reason, we never clicked and that’s the only reason for this.
Argh I SUCK at this.
To people still on my list, I have this sneaky suspicion that some of you want
to take me off your list but feel obliged to keep me for some reason or another. Please don’t. I won’t hate you if you remove me from your flist.P.S
: Kasha 4eternity
the only reason I’m removing you is because your entries here are duplicates of your posts on GJ so I read them all there. :)
That is all.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
Made a new layout
. I figured I’d better change it until I was really satisfied because I wouldn’t have time to do anything else after this. And ooh, new mood theme and icons as well.
I didn’t do anything special last night and I’m not going anywhere today I guess. I lead such an interesting life don’t I? ;) But about 20 of my relatives are coming over and we’re cooking (and buying) lots of food and hanging out and catching up so that should be moderately fun. :P I can’t believe it’s 2006 already. Wow.
Much thanks to you guys for the congrats on my job. :D I start on Tuesday and although I’m very excited about staring this new chapter of my life (okay corny I know), I’m also uncertain and a little nervous because I have no idea about what’s in store for me.Recent pic of me…
I actually look halfway decent in this one. Heh.
I’m taking a new pill for my sinus… it’s a little blue pill and of course, my mum is joking around and calling it the Viagra pill. Ha. Ha. ;)
We made cookies again!
This one is called sarang semut
which when roughly translated into English means er, ant nest? Yeah don’t ask… don’t know why that is either. ;) It’s so easy to make… just batter and then some coloured rice sprinkled all over it. We just made a small batch just for fun.
Lookie what karmaontherun
made for me. Aren’t they so pretty
Meme: Name a fandom and I'll tell you:

Another meme: Take the first sentence from the first post of each month of 2005. That's your year in review.( The year that was… 2005Collapse )
OMG!!! Someone bought me a paid account! And yet, I don't know who it is.
Whoever you are, THANK YOU SO MUCH and please let me know who you are so I can thank you.
:D A million thanks to genevieve
!!! *hugs* Because of you, I can use pretty icons like this one. *points to Sark icon* *g*ETA
: I got a call from KPMG today! My interview is on Wednesday, which means that I have interviews on two consecutive days. Whoo!
OMG!!! Arrested Development got cancelled!
CURSE YOU FOX. BAH. Anyway, for AD fans living in the U.S, the contact info for NBC
(which is supposed to be the best option right now for picking up the show) is ( under the cutCollapse )
WHY do they cancel everything that's half decent? Huh?!
<--- My icon is the result of me finally watching (after a few years of putting it off and watching halfway through the movies before giving up) at least one of the HP DVDs I co-own. I watched POA
on Saturday night and part of COS
yesterday and today. I know it’s still too early for me to consider myself a bonafide fan but I really did enjoy watching the movies, especially the shippery scenes. Was there ever any doubt I would? ;) Haha. Anyway, it’s clear to me that by shipping H/H, I *am* among the minority, but meh. Also? Is it disturbing that I now find Daniel Radcliffe pretty hot? *drools* Now I know what you guys mean when you feel guilty for lusting over him LMAO.
Ulcer= immense PAIN. Ugh.
My resume has just been sent in and will probably be received tomorrow. *bites off fingernails and crosses fingers*
Now onto the actual reason for my post.
I’ve thought about this for a while now and although I hate to do this, I’ve decided to do a … FRIENDS CUT
. This is completely NOT personal… I don’t have issues with anyone on LJ. It’s just that I’m going to be working (hopefully) soon and will, from what I’ve heard over and over again, have to bust my ass and work until 11/12 at night so I’d probably have little time to even be on the Net, unless it’s the weekend. I just can’t deal with an 80 something flist anymore. Sucks but oh well. I want
to do well so this is something I’ll just have to give up. Anyway, feel free to keep me on your flist or delete me immediately… either way is fine with me.
Short recap of last few days:Saturday
- Went to Wan U
. Did some more shopping. Well I needed a handbag for interviews etc. since I’m need a more professional looking one since I'm all grown up now. *coughs* And a top… but I paid most of the money for both so I didn’t feel so
guilty about it. Bad, bad me. I really need to stop buying stuff. Also? Made a cake with mum and sis. The end result:
The cake itself was a little dry (we haven’t figured out the microwave yet, heh) but the fudge was YUMMY
. We melted a whole cooking chocolate and spread it over the top.Sunday
- Went to visit my grandpa and grandma’s resting place because of All Souls’ Day. Officially sort of started packing.Monday
- Watched last ep of Wonderfalls
. *sniffles* Was sad. Liked the last few scenes though. Yay for gooey shipper stuff. *sighs happily* Finished most of packing.Tuesday
- Followed mum and bro to officially hand over keys to the new owner of my old house. Aww. :( I’ve lived there ALL my life so it’s a little sad.( Ack! Rory/Jess Season 6 (sort of) spoilery promo pic... *flails* “You looked it up.”Collapse )
Ooh BTW another round of icons. ( Tada.Collapse )
Well I’m off to:
Eeeeee!!! Can’t wait to go. Sun, sand, FUN! See you guys in about a week, give or take because of long flights and stuff like that. *hugs* Be good LOL.
Brr. It's cold. It's been raining heavily and windy the last couple of days so I'm in my sweatpants and a baby-T that says, "Still not sure?" <--- oy, the story of my life.
So. Guess where I’m going to be in two weeks. No really, GUESS.
Do you give up?
I’ll be in Gold Coast, Australia. Eeeeee!!! *insert girlish squel here*
I’ve never been out of the country, except for Singapore and Thailand so this is AWESOME.
Even better: my mum, sis and me will be traveling there by business class (which I’ve never been on). Yeah babyyyyyyyy. (Psst amber_protocol
I brought up NZ but it’s too far and slightly too expensive :( ) I've known for about a week now but didn't want to get too happy until everything was confirmed. Today. We’re leaving on the Raya week so that’s why the flights are hard to get and all hectic right now. I’ll probably be there for 5 days, 4 nights or something. I’m still not keeping my hopes up too high and not getting so excited yet though… until I’m actually in Australia. *crosses fingers*
:P I’m going to try not to spend a lot there or at least use my own money because the trip itself, even with the 3 free tickets, will be like RM15000 minimum. Holy crap. But still? Can’t. WAIT.

Made another HUGE icon batch so:( Icons galoreCollapse )
- listening to:Watching CSI
I collected my results at campus at 4 p.m yesterday.
Squeeee!!! I didn’t do as bad as I thought. Whee!!! My mum says I’m too pessimistic sometimes and I think I totally was, when it came to this. I even told my friends not to call me yesterday because I was sure that I’d be crying too much to talk to them. LOL, it sounds stupid and dramatic that I’m acting like this over test results but this is crucial to me getting a good job so I DON’T CARE. ;) I am now a (almost officially) proud graduate with a BBSDP Accounting degree – Second Class (Lower) with Honours
. I know it isn’t that good but I expected the worst: Third Class and plus, there were only 2 people who got Second Upper and NO ONE got First Class which is so surprising because I expected at least one of us to get it. Anyway, it’s weird… my major is Accounting but I did better for my Finance papers. Hee. Maybe I should work in Finance… in banks instead. I shall ponder that.
Whew. It feels like a huge burden is off me because I’ve been worrying for days about this, about not wanting to disappoint my parents, or screwing up my chances to get into the Big 4 accounting firms (they expect better results obviously)… and now I feel better/more optimistic. And I’m actually pumped up (well, more than usual) about getting a job soon. I have to prepare my resume. And work on my interview skills and presentation. My transcripts are ready to be picked up in a week and I’ve already formally withdrawn from the college. YAY.
I made some really, really random and simple text icons.( More hereCollapse )
There's a stray kitten outside my house that apparently has a grudge against my family for some reason. It keeps mewing very angrily LOL.
Be back later. Off to watch Apprentice 3
and attempt to watch Alias
Season 4 aka the season that apparently really, really sucks.
Have you ever had a really, really good dream where you managed to get the guy AND piss off a girl you hate all at the same time? And then wake up to realize none of it actually happened and feel crushed? Pathetic I know but that was me this morning.
