Kiasu? HNGGGGG!!!

Busy busy busy.

I've been busy for the past 3 months and for God's sake time passes so fast! I don't even have time to go exercise which i planned to. I was so rajin last time that i went swimming after classes everyday. Yeah EVERYDAY.

Now i am fat as a panda bear who only knows how to hibernate and eat. Of course with my signature dark eye circles.

ARGH all because of the tiring classes and clinical postings i have to attend every single day! >.<

The main thing i wanna blog today is KIASU-ness of people nowadays. For those who don't understand what kiasu is, Kiasu (怕输) means scared of losing in Hokkien. Hey don't laugh, some people really don't know what the hell kiasu means even though they are Malaysians. (HAHA Ken don't know about this and my reaction was OH MY GOD FOR GOD'S SAKE HOW CAN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT KIASU MEANS??? Ok i forgive him cos he's a Cantonese and apparently he seldom has Hokkien friends.)

I'm pretty sure among of our friends there are kiasu people. Ok i think there's a little element of kiasu-ness in everybody, i admit i'm kiasu too. Hoho. But what i'm trying to say here is the super duper holy mama kiasu people that will fight to their death in order to win something miserable, well in other words to win something that is insignificant. As long they don't lose to people. OK as long as they are not number 2 in the list.

HELLO, we are all humans you know? Equality? Win or lose doesn't matter? Never heard of these before in your entire life? Haha of course i am referring to those super kiasu people.

I give you an example. I'm still a student and we are doing individual projects to fulfill our quota. Everyone has to finish 25 quotas before the semester ends.

Haha i admit i'm among the laziest group of people in the class, but i will surely finish up my quota before the last date of submission. So we have a total of 8 weeks in two semesters to finish the quota. That, seems a looooooooooooooooooong time for me. For sure everyone will finish up their quota before the submission date, fast or slow.

There are certain people that tend to finish faster because they just like to do so, i'm used to it. At first i can not stand the way of them finishing all the things in one shot, but then i realize later, it's their freedom to finish it fast. Cos they just like to do so, just as simple as that. We can't point a gun to their heads and say "OI stop finishing the quota so fast, or else i will shoot your bloody brain out!!!" , am i right? It's their right to do what ever they want, as long as they don't irritate other people. So i won't give a damn now for what ever things they do.

But the thing i can not stand the most is, the super kiasu people that always COMPARING themselves with others. Sorry it's comparing OTHERS with themselves. They will check everybody's quota like an inspector, investigate how your work progresses and how the hell you finish your every single quota. Even my parents didn't investigate my daily life as frequently as these mini investigators. VERY ANNOYING OK???

As for my case, i'm a lazy person. Sometimes haha. I always lacking in finishing my quota. But my concept is everyone will finish the quota at the very end, no matter fast or slow. So i emphasize again, no matter what is your speed, everyone is gonna finish every quota at the end. So why the rush? Yes i admit i will be a little bit panicky when my work is too lacking behind, but Karma always does her job, i finished my quota in a short period and i am able to cope up with the rest of my classmates.

This is when the annoying part starts to happen. Few of my classmates, started to ask me how i finished my quota since i am a zero at the beginning. OMG do i need to explain to these fellows that i am doing the same thing as them to finish our quota? That is a freaking stupid question i ever heard. Everyone is doing the same whole thing, is whether you are doing it fast or slow. I notice I've been repeating the previous sentence. =.=

They didn't ask once, they ask so many times as if i'm doing magic to my quota and *KABOOM* my quota finished by itself! Woohoo! I'm a great magician in class and i know it.

Come on la, so coincidentally i got a lot of samples to finish the work, that's why i managed to finish a number of quota in a short time. I got lucky. Just that simple. And after explaining to them, * haiz i had to explained so they can stop asking me the same whole thing over and over again*, they give me the "OMG i gotta finish my quota as soon as possible before i lack behind like you" look. What the f*ck. Hello even though i am lazy but i am not stupid you know. Oh well i just ignore them at the end.  :P

Oh that's not the end of the story. They will work harder, or even snatch other people's sample just to be at the peak. Holy mama they are the ultimate kiasu people i have ever met. You know what? When they are at the peak, they will find you and boast it in front of you.

"Ohhhhhhh, so what?"

"Haha no la, just wanna let you know," they replied.

Wa at this moment i feel like Sun Goku in Dragon Ball. Flames all over my body, flames. Oh God why am i surrounded by childish people? HELLO we are already grown ups ok?? Maybe i forget that age is not the real factor here. Yeah i have met many kiasu people, but not as 欠打 as these people. For once I also felt like finishing up my quota to keep their bloody boastful mouth shut but i didn't. There's no point in doing so as i only get myself stressed up until the end, and what's the difference between me and them if i do the same way as they already did? I choose to ignore them completely and i believe in Karma. :) If you know what i mean.

The moral of the story is, don't compare yourself with others. LOL i sounded so wise here. Haha joking la joking la. You can be kiasu, but don't overdo it until you irritate your friends by boasting around. You will lose your friend if you do so. True story. And to those who encounter the same thing as i am now, my advice is just ignore them and do your daily job as you planned to. Just fulfill your daily responsibilities and be happy. It's not worth to stress yourself up by competing with these childish people.  :)

Okay time to go to bed.

Good night and sweet dreams everyone! :3

Pedal towards Live Heritage

Hello awesome peeps! 

Sorry for the one month delay cos of the stupid and slow internet connection here at Butterworth.
The whole condo was having this problem almost for the last whole month, especially at night. 
Of course for a frequent online user like me sure can not stand the stupiak connection!!!!!!! =.=
Turned off to blog last few weeks ago.

But thank God Ah Boy (my batch mate) found an charity event for us to kill our time! :D
It is an cycling event at Penang Island in conjunction with 4th Anniversary George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site celebration. 

*LOL i thought George Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since a decade ago, buay paiseh me*

The event's theme is "Pedal towards Live Heritage".  :)

AHAAAAAAAAA i love cycling, even though i had a hard time cycling at Pondicherry in India last 3 years ago. LOL
Very unstable cycling and i kept falling down. :P

But still i love it! I immediately agreed to it when Hooi Thang invited me. 

Ah Boy helped us to make the payment, booked the bicycles and cycling helmet for us.
We gathered last Friday at Padang Kota Lama at 7.30pm for briefing and the starting point for the cycling .

[We took our bicycles and helmets, and cycled to Padang Kota Lama. p/s: look at the boss who is talking over the phone! XD]

I can tell you, cycling at Penang roads are AWESOME.
I never cycle around the town especially in town with lots of vehicles roaming around. Yeah it was kinda dangerous but the feeling is awesome. (Pondicherry in India has less cars on the road, so cycling at that area is more or less safer than Penang)

Haha sorry for being so sua gu (like coming out from a kampung) cos i always drive my car around! :P

At Padang Kota Lama, HOLY MAMA there are around 400 plus of people there! Mostly with their own bicycles. OMG I SO ENVY THEM! ><
The event is so cool cos everyone looked so sporty and energetic that day!

While waiting, photo taking session starts! :D

 [From left to right : Si Jie, Hooi Thang, Ah Pek Li Herng, me, Isaac, Jet, Rachel, Joanna and Ah Boy]

 [Hooi Thang and me. Haha love this picture cos i looked slimmer here! <3]

 [Rachel and Jet]

And here is my personal pictures with each one of them! :3

Haha very happy during the cycling cos my make up looked nice that day. LOL
Just kidding la, i like happening places so joining this cycling event with a bunch of friends is very exciting and enjoying too! 

Too bad Yik Ming can't cycle, i must teach her how to cycle already so she can join this type of event with us next time! :)

[This is my cycling helmet with fiery flame "HOT WHEELS" design! Love it to the max!]

[Me with messy hair >w<]

So we started to cycle at around 8pm.

Here is the route :

START → Padang Kota Lama → Jalan Tun Syed Barakbah → Lebuh Pantai → Lebuh Victoria → Gat Lebuh Melayu → Lebuh Pantai → Lebuh Gereja → Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling → Lebuh Farquhar → Lebuh Leith → Lebuh Muntri → Lorong Love → Lebuh Chulia → Lebuh Carnavon → Lebuh Buckingham → Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling → Lebuh Farquhar → Lebuh Light → Padang Kota Lama END

It looked freaking far right?

But we took only half an hour to finish the route. LOL

At the beginning it was quite tough for me to cycle as there are too many people in front of us! 
Cycling at a very slow speed is very hard and i kept falling down (almost)!

Even the uncle behind me told me "Don't panic, cycle slowly". OMG how to not panic when your bicycle is not stable at all??? =.=

But after awhile my cycling was ok cos not many people in front of us, and thank God Isaac was always beside me while cycling. LOL thanks a lot Isaac for being so nice! *Although my cycling is so sucky*

The night scenery at George Town was beautiful. Enjoying the night view while cycling is one of best experience ever. The weather was nice, the wind was cooling and the traffic was ok. Perfect night for cycling.

Too bad can't take pictures! The night view was very captivating! Great for pictures but oh well... >.<

On the other hand, we found many small stalls or food shops with yummy food while cycling! That is the best part during cycling! Haha really no lies! Almost all the road that i mentioned above have at least one or two shops with a lot of people lining out side for dinner! OMG we also can smell those food ok? 

There are many different cuisines to choose from and the food looks yummy! LOL all we think about is food. XDDD

Must really go and try out all these food stalls or shop next time! :)))

So at the end we reached Padang Kota Lama after half an hour. The cycling experience was cool. I love it! :)

Haha the organizers also held a lucky draw event after that.
Li Herng told us he was feeling luckay that day. Haha so Hooi Thang and i kept hoping him getting the lucky draw prizes that he doesn't want! :P

Initially his number was announced and we thought he got movie tickets that he doesn't want!
OMG unexpectedly he got a high tea coupon at Strawberry Hill worth RM160!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cannot tahan you lor AH PEK!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO LUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TT^TT

Hooi Thang and me got a RM50 voucher at a boutique shop in Penang island. But we wanted the microwave oven! T^T
Nevermind la, at least our numbers are announced during the lucky draw. :)
We went to eat supper after that and went home around 11.30pm.

It was a irreplaceable experience for me. LOL i even fell down ok! TwT
If there is any charity event like this, for sure i will join again! Way to go Penang! :)))

Getting a cool metallic pink bicycle is on my things-to-do list right now. HOHOHO.  :)

More updates coming soon and stay tuned! :D
Have a great day ahead!

*Special thanks to Rachel for the great pictures! Love ya! <3 *
