Car accident


It was out of my control, I wanted it to stop but it didn't. It continued sliding, and banged like a bumper car.

Yeah, it was drizzling last night, I was driving Yi-Shen's car, he was sitting on the passenger's seat, Li was sitting at the back and we were heading home after dinner. I made a turn and lost concentration on the cars in front as I was looking at the rear view mirror; in a split of a second, it was too late to realize that the cars in front all braked.

I stepped on the braked but the car didn't stop at all, the road was too slippery. I had time to recall Yi-Shen talking about how the brake locks the car tyres when there's a sudden hard step on the brake, so I released and stepped on the brakes again, but sadly that didn't work too. Maybe it doesn't apply on straight roads.

So all of us watched me bang into the car in front, surprisingly, all was calm too. There was no shout let out by Li, no instructions or terperanjat-ness from Yi-Shen. Nothing special came out of me as well, but I felt my legs a bit soft when I walked out of the car lah.

In the end, the car that kena bang said it's ok (after like 10 minutes of inspecting his bumper, which didn't even had a scratch), so Yi-Shen took over and drove back.

This is the second time I damaged his front bumper after he fixed it and repainted it. =( The first time was when I was alone and reversed out of a parking space and got a scratched (a bad one) from the pillar.

This time, I got his car a crack, and the whole bumper dropped down a little. Sorry!

I hate smokers!

Why is it that smokers are generally selfish?

From the bottom of my heart, I hate (almost all of) them.

Have you walked in corridors, along the road, crossing the streets and smell smoke from the person in front of you who is smoking while walking? Have you being eating your lunch and smell smoke from the person in front of you who is smoking after his/her satisfying meal? They (the smokers) say, I quote: “饭后一支烟,快乐似神仙”; we say “要死你去死,我可不想死”!

Why? Why? Why can’t they be a little more considerate and smoke only at smoking rooms? If you can't find one, smoke somewhere behind the bushes where less people walk pass! Non smokers do not smoke because we don't want to, so what makes them think that we would want to inhale their second hand smoke?

I know it is a free world, but we being non smokers also have the right to tell you in your face that we do not enjoy smelling the nasty smell; so do not get offended when we do so, because you did not care if we are being offended while you huff and puff.

Every since I joined this current company, coughing is my second name.

Being in an office where 2 smoking managers (before this there were 6, go figure!) kill our lives slowly every day definitely makes me hate smokers more. Imagine the smell lah, we are in an air conditioned room, come on lah!

The recent cough I had was so terrible that I almost had asthma, I'm not coughing already but I'll start coughing whenever I attempt to laugh out loud (which is what I always do). Am I being deprived of laughing out loud, I asked Yi-Shen. I'm afraid coz this is the first time I cough so badly and it is also the first time I experience this laughing and cough thing.

To conclude, I just want to say that they really should not smoke in the office, be it in their room or whatever. Show some consideration!

We're engaged!

Yeah, like finally, we are engaged! =D

I've waited long enough for Yi-Shen to propose okay? Although we have already talked about everything else, the parents have met and talked about it too, the only thing missing was the proposal.


So it was yesterday, Valentine's day. As usual, we had a super normal day, woke up, watched TV, went to The Curve with Li to meet Chyi. Yi-Shen made reservations to have dinner at Royale Bintang, but since I got all sorts of hints* that there will not be any proposal, I didn't want to eat at the hotel in the end.

*reason for hints (i'm writing these down for memory's sake as my memory sucks):

1. At first I though there's a chance of proposal coz when I asked Yi-Shen where are we celebrating Vday he said "m.m" and what is m.m? It's 秘密.. So, Li and I discussed, he has never planned any big surprises for me for Vdays, so this must be it! He is so going to propose!

Then, a day before Vday, he told me he made reservations at Royale Bintang. Which, means he was bluffing when he said m.m to me! The actual fact is that he hadn't planned yet when I asked him.

ok, disappointed.

2. On the night before Vday, I went out with friends, Li was home with him. The next day, while having Vday cupcakes (Li's present, so chweeet norh?), Li told me that he talked to Yi-Shen when I was out, asked him whether he's gonna do it that night, and he said no no no.. proposing on Vday is so cliche bla bla bla... and totally made Li believed and angry that he is not proposing.

So Li asked me not to have any hopes for the night so that I won't be disappointed. =(

3. He totally didn't dress up, and he wanted to wear crocs to The Curve lor.. taoyan! If got plans sure dress up abit wan right? Blah.....

4. His pocket also don't have anything protruding~ If there's a ring, sure can see wan right? Blek!

5. He didn't act weird at all, coz normally when he has any surprises, I can sense it!

Okay, enough of hints!

So 5 of us had dinner, we were happy but Yi-Shen was abit quiet lah, but he's not always chatty when we're with my sis coz we talk talk talk, he got no chance to talk mah... then after dinner, we decided to all go to my house; suddenly, I felt unhappy. Coz I was thinking, eh why no present for me wan? *sulk*

Don't want to walk already lah, want to go back home! So we left The Curve.

On our way back, Yi-Shen made a turn against the way back home, I asked him where were we going and he said bring me somewhere. I didn't feel like it coz I was abit unhappy already mah.. so I mm choi kuei (ignored him).

In the end, he brought us to where we first started our courtship and he started talking about those days where he finished work (we were doing our industrial training then, so I stayed with my grand aunt) and came and look for me. Sometimes we went for his late dinner, sometimes we stayed in his ol betsy (his old Proton Iswara) and talked.

I giggled all the way coz I thought he is being pretty lame, bringing me there just to tell me all those. Then he handed me my camera, asked me to look at a few pictures that he took which was very pretty. I knew he was bluffing.. =D 我在想,他一定是拍了别样.. when I switched on the camera, it was something else! It was a slide show done by Yi-Shen, a proposal slide show, finished off with a self recorded 5 seconds proposal video, heeh..

The ring leh, you ask.. got lah.... next time only show you all kay?

In conclusion, I'm happy that Yi-Shen has proposed! And it's darn difficult to tell this story.
