So updates.
Remember that Hsua Wen Hua hair treatment I tried?
Well it’ll be unfair for me to give you a fair assessment since I am hopeless in keeping to a beauty regime so since this tub has an expiry date (yeah I know, it’s made fresh, that’s why), I’d have to “up” my game and be a bit more disciplined
Upon first try, I did it overnight, it’s kinda the same to be honest
Maybe that’s why they asked to do it consistently over the course of 6 weeks (I think)
Till next time

Okay, this year has been, hmm to put it in a simple word that encompasses all the twists and turns of this first half of the 2014 rollercoaster ride, it’ll be ‘interesting’
and maybe, ‘different’
okay that’s two words, but whatchu gonna do? 
I have had friends over, like 4 times and it has been such a ball to have them over and just catch up over old times (and new times of course)
I have done things which I never ever would even think of doing 
nothing bad, just out-of-character
I am the shyest person in a big crowd so I tend to just find a corner and pretend I’m part of the wallpaper or something (in 3D, wut? #lame)

During our weekly seminars, we’d have question time, so usually the PIs/postdocs that’d be the one who would ask all the questions.
If you know me well, I never ask questions in class, like ever.
I had a teacher once in college who didn’t like me, because I didn’t ask anything in class
(yeah, weird I know, I know)
So last week, I actually decided there and then that hey, I need to start somewhere
if I want to make a positive change about myself for myself, I need to get the frack out of that shell/ivory tower
so yeah, I asked a question
The build up to the actual question-asking was so so so silly weird
like I could actually feel my heart pumping (in slow motion), I felt like I could feel the blood just rushing through my veins and my palms got sweaty and all
(no over dramatisation here okay? I am that much of a scaredy cat)
But like a band-aid, ripped it and done
And to show how much of a big deal it was, my boss actually congratulated me (lol)
Popped that cherry yay!

Onwards now, no looking back 🙂


I am very curious as to what the second half of this year might bring
I’ve got quite a few things lined up 
like my first conference! super excited for that
I hope it’ll go okay (which it will, *monologue*)


last but not least, WORLD CUP
I miss the times where I’d watch with my family at home, we’d all be sitting in front of the telly, picking sides and just watch the game 
One of the memories I had was when I was 10 (I think) and the final was between France and Brazil in ’98, I was struggling to keep myself awake to see the whole game
Guess what? 
I fell asleep and woke up to Ricky Martin’s song lol
France won (I was for Brazil heh)
This year, as you may already know, unless you live underneath a giant rock, it’s in Brazil
and thus, the time difference SUCKS
there’s a game Germany vs Portugal tonight, which I’d love to watch but I don’t think I’ll manage
Sokay, ada app boleh la track kan?
and I’ll just watch the reruns

damn, that was a long post
dah namanya update kan?
