The King Is Back! (Warning! No Pics!)

Oh wow! It's about time I blow away all these layers of dust that buried my blog. Well, I'm finally back after a year of hiatus. It's an amazing year (2010) and what 2011 awaits, I have no idea, and frankly, its a bit shaky now, but all will work out well. I believe it will be! =)

Let's pick up the bits and pieces that I have left behind, my year in Canning College was just amazing and definitely a memorable one. I did fairly well for my Foundation Program, which eventually led me here, in Canberra. For the last couple of days, these few lines kept on finding their way to my head, 'It's all good in Perth, why Canberra?', and up until recently, these came up, 'Ahh..How I wished either my brother or sister is around to help me out' , and of course, 'Peng Hooi, it sucks to be alone!' I have only one answer to them all, 'Peng Hooi, what is the one thing that will differ you from the Peng Hooi that decides to stay put in Perth? , Independence!' I guess I'm to afraid to admit that I'm always the 'child' of the family, the highly-dependent one. For now at least, I can finally say, I am starting to be independent. I do know that if I were ever to fall, it is gonna be a real mess and the safety net is pretty far away. Guess my life had always been involving people taking more responsibility over myself. Honestly, that felt good, like really good. You'd only feel the pain of it once you're on your own. Guess who's in that shoe now. =( Well, it's about time to sober up, and to start taking more responsibilities.

On a more appetizing note (not), I realised what it really meant by a good cook. A good cook is a person that can cook reasonable meals even if the crowd is not quite there and the cook's assistance are not up to standard. All these years, I knew that I can cook, and that I will never starve *touch-wood* , but now I know that I can cook well, because I've been watched over. Cooking is the easy part (this comment has no intention to undermine others, at all), the tough part is to prepare the ingredients to cook and to plan the meals ahead. That means the backbone to become a good cook is to always have stuffs planned ahead, which includes the whole planning part. That is when I realise that I'm not a good cook, not well-qualified yet. FYI, I'm still surviving for now, my current staples include milk, muesli, almonds, yogurt, grapes, and bread. My breakfast, lunch and dinner are pretty much the same, they have only slight variations. Oh btw, I have added Tiramisu to my arsenal of recipes. Gotta say, I'm AWESOME!

Hmm.. let's see what's up recently. I've been spending a lot, on food, transport and rent (a real killa!!) It really defines 'dagger to the wallet'. I've submitted a cover letter and an attached resume (do I have one?Hell yeah!!) to apply a job as an Administrative Assistant in Australia National University Students' Association (ANUSA) (Truth, I laughed when I first saw this abbreviation). Their reply was really a prompt one as I've sent my application at about a quarter past 4, and they replied 5 mins to 5. That's really quick! =) Also, I've been moving around quite heavily lately, getting to know places, and still looking for a perfect jogging route.

My brother and I made some sorta deal/challenge, which is to have the ultimate guns (arms) and a ripped body. I've started on it by controlling the first factor to it, diet. I plan my diet as carefully as I possibly can. Wish me luck on it =) Also, another deal with my sister was if she loses a dress size, I will fully sponsor her wedding gown for her registration on the 11th of Nov 2011. I will keep to my word, and for that, I've gotta work even harder, to pay my rent when I'm back in Msia during the 2011 break (I have loads of stuffs here now 3 huge check-in bags, 1 check-in box, a hand-carry bag, and a laptop bag about 60 kgs + of stuffs that I brought over. To purchase my air ticket back to Perth, then back to Msia, then back again will be hefty too..

Well, more on me crapping on with my life tomorrow. I'm really sleepy now, its 10.50 pm currently. Long and hot day ahead. Take care peeps!
