It's been days since the tragic bus crash at Slim River happened. When I first heard it from my friend, Pras, I thought it was another bus crash, just like the ones that usually happen around Chinese New Year period but when she said that one of her friends got killed in it, I gave it a second thought. I have never lost a loved one, and I would never want to go through the pain. I didn't know what to say so I brushed it aside, hoping that I could distract her from thinking about it too much. After all, when it comes to sad stuff, I have no clue how to console a person.

Didn't know how serious the bus crash was until I visited a friend's blog at Apparently, friends of one of the victims in the bus crash, Nian Ning, are coming up with a petition for safer bus rides to urge the authorities to take action in preventing future similar incidents from happening. Year after year, there have been only talk but no action. I guess although I can never understand how her loved ones feel, I bet it must be extremely hard. So I'm doing my part to spread the news.

The news article about the Nian Ning:

Bus Crash No More blog:

Since none of these people are bothered to do anything about it, it’s up to us to push for a change. Bloggers,

Please post this on your blog now to help:

Chung Lern and Nian Ning’s families would like all families and friends of the victims, dead or alive, in the Slim River Bus Crash to come forward and join them in taking action against the bus company. Stand up to seek justice for these three innocent individuals, who were all so young and full of life.

If you have a blog, please call out to ANYONE who

knows someone who survived or did not survive

the crash to come forward to join the Lee family.

Make a huge difference, make a huge fuss.

For now, you may contact Lee Chung Lern at or preferably on his handphone at 012-6670368.

What we can also do is boycott Konsortium express buses.

Pay a little bit more for Nice - is your life not worth that extra RM23?
Another solution that might not be the best, drive. Get 3 friends, a car, and at least the fate of your lives are in your own hands. But remember, drive safely.
Or if you can afford it - FLY. AirAsia and Firefly are making air travel a lot more affordable for us. Like I said - is your life not worth that extra money?

Nian Ning was loved by her family and her friends. Don’t let her be just another statistic to add to the current rise of deaths on the road. After all, we quickly forget.

But she was loved. Read Jien Ann’s blog, Pei Wen’s blog, Sookie’s, check out her boyfriend’s photopage or even her other friend’s blogs. Or check out the facebook group her those dearest to her created in her memory.

Stop being so ‘tidak apa’.

Don’t forget - it could have easily been me, or you, or your loved ones.

Rest in Peace, my friend.

~Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action. (1 John 3:18)

All words in blue were taken from Xinch's blog.

May Nian Ning and the other 2 victims R.I.P.

2nd post of the year

I still can't believe it's already 2008!! 2007 just flew by and I couldn't wait for 2007 to end because I felt so left out in a new place and underwent loads of unnecessary stress. Loads have happened in 2007, which when I come to think of them, they were nothing, no big deal. So, this year I'll turn 20 in May! The big 2!! O.o Oh no...time is ticking away, and I'm becoming older and older each year. So, should I change the title of my blog, or what?? Cause in fact I am a teenager at heart. Hmmm...

Anyway, was just thinking...

I was talking to a friend about C, only then I knew how much I've hurt him. I guess it was my fault I rushed into a decision and now I can't turn back time. C and I used to be very close too. Close to the extent that we could talk about some taboo stuff. Come to think of it, he's an extremely accepting guy. So this time when I came back for my summer holidays, I msged him to ask if he's back in Penang. I thought that we could meet up, like what old friends do. Little did I realise that he doesn't wanna be my friend (at least that's what I think based on how he treated me). So, N's friend is C's best friend and so N's friend told N that he was really really hurt. And it suddenly hit me that I never tried to feel how he felt that time. *sigh* Maybe it's a lesson learnt.

...if I'd rather not know what N's friend told N or know it and be a little depressed over it?

=S I'm a confused girl and always will be.

I've been tagged by Liz

1. The tag victim has to come up with 8 different points about his/her perfect lover.
2. Have to mention the gender of his/her perfect lover.
3. Tag eight other victims to join this game and leave a comment on their blog.
4. If you are tagged the second time, there is NO need to do this again.
5. Lastly, and most importantly, HAVE FUN DOING IT.

I have to list down the 8 qualities of a guy that make him my man. Of course, I have to be more realistic. So here goes...

  1. A sense of humour - I don't mind if he's lame, as long as he makes me laugh.
    Of course too much lameness will make the magic fade away. So...I prefer that he has every kind of humour in moderate XD I quote M, "a guy who has a sense of humour already scores 30% over a hundred".
  2. Not afraid to communicate - Communicate, in the sense that he can share his feelings and thoughts with me and vice that we can be honest with each other. In other words, there's trust between my man and I, something like the one between my BFF and I =)
  3. My source of strength - When I fall, he'll be there to give me words of encouragement and inspiration. Or even better, he doesn't have to say anything and I'll know that he believes in me to stand up on my own again (something like what Liz said in her blog). And when I need to be weak once in a while, he'll be there for me to run into his warm embrace. The most important thing of all is that he must always remind us of our faith - Lord our God is our ultimate source of strength.
  4. Knows how to act at different times - My man has to know when to be mature or immature. I want a guy who can be immature with me when we're having fun but can be mature when he's dealing with serious stuff.
  5. Complements me - A guy has to complement me. For example, although we have different personalities but we complete and get along well with each other perfectly!! (well, not perfect-perfect, but perfect...u know what I mean)
  6. Space - Although we spend time doing things together, I hope that my man and I could give each other some space once in a while...for me to hang out with my girl friends and him with his guys.
  7. Able to romance me - I don't ask for the super romantic, expensive restaurant kind...but the little things he does every day that makes me feel loved. He doesn't have to realise that he's doing it. =)
  8. Since everyone says looks count, I'll just say that he has to be taller than me (my head must reach at least his shoulder XD), not too bad-looking and is not too skinny/fat.
I tag:
Shao Thing
Kazu (if he ever reads this, which I doubt)
Esther Tan (which I doubt she'll ever see this)
Ghee Leng
Sze May
