Superiority of the younger

i think my toes aren't as ugly anymore. hehe
it's one day before the new term commences and for the very first time in my life, i feel very well rested, that my break was well spent! :-) i'd probably only say that now, ask me again tmrw evening and it'd probably be a whole different story! but that aside, i loved my summer! it was amazing and while i can't list down a hectic itinerary to tell tall tales of adventure, mishap and mischief, the thoughts of summer brings a definite smile to my face and a warm feeling to my heart. my mother was amazing! and my dad and brother. and my sister, even when she went to india.

the flight back here was horrendous!! i decided to take the KLCAT to the airport this time cause i really didnt wanna trouble my parents with the long drive to KLIA and back. also, i figured who knows, the MAS ground staff at KL Sentral might just be kinder than the airport's. and by golly gosh (hehe!) i was right! when i flew back to Dublin after Christmas, i had a 24 kg luggage and the MEAN lady made me remove stuff till it was 20! but in KLSentral, the KIND lady allowed me 21.6 kgs and told me (after i bodekly apologised profusely stating honestly and sincerely that my weighing scale back home showed just 20, and, this i didn't tell her but imagine the horrors going thru my mind as to my real BODY mass!), she said MAS allows 25 kgs! so after bravely bidding goodbye to my beloved mummy and daddy, i was off to KLIA!

i made it to the lounge by 10, my flight was at 11.40. they didnt open the lounge till 11! crazy ppl. but the xray scan was ok. i carried one laptop bag and a carry on. i was seated beside this australian by citizenship, indian-welsh by genetics lady and her welsh mother. they were mediocrely nice, and they gave me a small kangaroo at the end of the trip! ehhe only whilst queuing up in Heathrow did i wonder what if they slipped some drugs in the cutesy kangaaroo??? hehe but thank goodness they didn't.

as we took off one hour later cause interestingly, the pilot couldn't get in touch with the air traffic control tower, i arrived one hour late with only one hour to spare before my connecting flight. the bi**h of an air stewardness dismissedly told me that everyone had a connecting flight and pretty much told me to stop making a fuss. I WILL BE MAKING AN OFFICIAL COMPLAINT to MAS once i settle in my own room! upon arrival, i learnt i had to squeeze one of my bags into another and make it fit the measurements stipulated with the latest stringent ruling. so i arranged and rearranged (i kinda had the inclination of what fitting a corset must have been like) and i got through!!! just when i thought my ordeal was over, the security xray. so i missed my flight. the groun staff had rescheduled another flight for me but BY GOLLY GOSH (hehe) was i worried about my cargo luggage. but i was pleasantly surprised when my bag emerged on the carousel. hehe i felt like my pretty bag was smiling up at me, and this time i had the inclination of what being a new parent must feel like! hehehe

after seeing the beach, i went to church on saturday. it was slightly longer but i figured it beats waking up early on a sunday. this time the priest gave a homily on how biblically, the younger sibling always emerged with God's favour. for example, Cain and Abel, Martha and Mary, the prodigal son and his brother, joseph and his brothers, Esau and Jacob, Rachel and i forgot her sister's name so on and so forth. (wah, at that point i felt so depressed and doomed for mediocrisy in life!). but the priest went on to explain some guy's theory on how the parents have the superior and another trait to pass on to the kids, and the older ones tend to inherit the superior trait (fixed leadership executive traits to handle and mind the younger ones) while the younger ones inherit the trait that allows them to be risktakers and more open to changes and criticism. so the priest concluded that we need to be more open. i inferred and here i summarise "Let Go and Let God"(this rainbow's for gracie!)
which reminds me, i went for mass in Good Shepherd setapak and i love it there! the homily, the priest (which ahem ahem is my mother's cousin hehe), the choir and cute slides. i commited one to memory

"I never said it would be easy, i only said it would be worth it"

With that, ladies and gentlemen, i rest my case. hehe
wish me luck with the new term! muax!

(in Ireland within just a few hours. i think it's just crazy)

pretty things in nice packages!

hehe i've known a lot of guys in my life, and i dont mean romantically. i just make it a point to know ppl, and how i'm linked to ppl. i guess i really like it when i find out that the world is actually very small, and it never fails to amaze me everytime i find a link. that's why, i guess, friendster's my fav website. that, and the interesting gossip updates one can get without even having to ask and sound like a nosy biatch. hehe

gosh, im so terpesong-ing. hehe well my point was that, i liked to scan and get a feel of the scene (i.e. cute eligible guys at a particular location), jsut for networking and sometimes to matchmake with my friends! hehe and melawati DOES have their bountiful share of hot guys, trust me! hehe so growing up, i've seen some guys grow out of their hotness, while some just nicely grow up. hehe but as time passed, i began to lose hope in mankind with the dwindling amount of hot guys with stellar personalities and intelligence to dazzle. i thought i had met them all, and that was it. boy, did things look bleak.

but guess what!?! i could not be more wrong!! hehe these guys are pretty much guaranteed out of my or anyone close to me's reach. but they're living proof that brains do still indeed come in nice packages! hehe

1. Wentworth Miller (they come in no particular order, i swear, looks or brains!)
those who read my more recent posts would know of my obsession with his eyes, his hands, his brooding looks. hehe the whole hot package! i think i read somewhere that he's some sort of intelligent fella in real life too. not just in Prisonbreak in which he's a topshot structural engineer. oh ya, if my memory serves me correctly, in REAL life he has a degree in English which he completed waaaay before even venturing into acting. talk about knowing his priorities! hehe just Look at him! who can say he doesnt have the whole package?? God IS kind! hehe

2. Wang Lee Hom
i always knew at the back of my mind that this guy's pretty good looking. but i thot he was another chinese pop singer who crooned in a language i didnt understand, what more attempt to groove to. hehe but this summerr, his face is everywhere! hehe kind like a "take a closer look at me" kinda msg (yes, wishful thinking on my part, i know.. ehhe ). he's on Fossil's advertisements, and his amazingly macho voice almost manages to tempt me to ditch my 7 year loyalty to DiGi for Celcom! hehe he's cut out as the golden heir of a medical dynasty with his dad a pediatrician, his brother some doctor too. he won some top award for being an outstanding high school student and was on his wya to study medicine in Yale i think, but followed his heart into music in Berkeley and he aced it too. he plays a multitude of musical instruments. hehe if he didnt, we wont get to swoon over him, globally! and since he is an American, he speaks English innately! PERFECTION!!!

3. Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor
hehe i read the news on our very first Malaysian astronaut and you can be sure i'd be tuning in really intently for updates on this astronomical breakthrough! hehe a Medical officer who lectures at HUKM whilst pursuing his Masters in orthopaedic medicine, he chose space travel and is putting his life on hold. he is really really HOT! hehe i mean, just look at him! hehe if i were fitter, and maybe a little older, i'd wanna know where to sign up to 'work' with him on his amazingly challenging pursuit of his dream. hehe i'd be his personal cheerleader! hehe
(p/s pics off the Star online!)

so there. 3 guys who restored my faith in hot intelligent men. hehe what do you think?
