Unexpected

Five years ago, I stepped foot into University Malaya. Definitely did not see that coming when I received my second STPM result which allow me to study a degree program in a public university. It is more surprising when I got myself into Malaysia top public university. What make things better is University Malaya is just fifteen minutes drive away from home. I am blessed with great luck.

I was so determined to do well in the university. In addition, my mind is set to represent the University for basketball. I easily got selected to be a varsity player. However I did badly academically in my first semester. I withdrew myself from my first MASUM competition.

When I got back on track academically, I started to have conflict with the basketball coach. Knowing that when your coach does not agree with you on certain matter, you know that you will not be featuring much in games. Decision has been made. I opted out.

I started playing netball. Netball is well known for being a sports which is played by women. The surprising thing is there is this male category in the University. I first played netball when I was in my first year. I remember my first competition is an embarrassment. I could not put in the ball into the net even though I am just underneath it. My team was third that year.

The next one was even worse. I never like losing.

My very first unexpected experience was going on an exchange program. Korea was the destination. That experience easily became my best hundred thirteen days in my life.

After coming back, I started playing semi professional netball. It is something that started off unexpectedly when my all time favourite sports is basketball. However playing for an amateur netball club in Malaysia is quite an experience. Due to my first embarrassing experience in my first Sukmum netball game, my style of play is like basketball. I do lay ups more often rather than the conventional way. I realised netball can be as exciting as basketball.

In 2014, I was given the opportunity to represent the club in Australia annual prestigious netball competition.

We were competing in Brisbane that year. We played against teams across Australia. We were competing in the reserved category although we are considered as one of the top club in Malaysia. I like it there. From the weather to the people around, I am very much enjoying myself when I was in Brisbane. Netball is very well developed in Australia. They are all really good netball players. We only managed a win out of the ten games we played. We drew when playing against a strong Queensland team. In addition, another unexpected accomplishment was achieved. I was awarded as the fourth place MVP for the reserved category. It is definitely an unexpected award. I certainly never see that coming when competing with other good players.

I bumped into a netball player who is as tall as me!


She looks good too!

The following year, I was fortunate to represent the club again in Australia. This time around it is in Sydney. One of the major city in Australia. I enjoyed myself in Sydney but I must say I love the experience in Brisbane more. I made more friends this time around.

She is cute!

Sydney was not as fun due to the fact that I have to spend my time at the bench more often. I never like losing but staying at the bench is much worse than losing games. This experience taught me a lesson and I am not letting that to happen again.

It took me six months to become a better player and I proved it when I finally managed to win Gold in Sukmum Netball this time around. The elusive Sukmum gold medal is finally ours and it is more memorable winning Gold as a team. I have never won a gold in the annual Sukmum meet till 2015. It is sweeter when my tenth Sukmum medal is a Gold.


I am glad for the achievement and I am thankful for the people I met along this unexpected netball journey.

Varsity Netball Players

They are the few people I met along my netball journey. Pek Xian who is the girl at the left. She is a state player. She represents KL team.

I was happy to meet her at the first place. I have never expected that I got to know her. She is a humble person and she always strive for success. She is a very nice person too. I enjoyed spending time with her :)

Looking forward to more unexpected in 2016!

Friends Again

Time flies and my first post of the year is on the final day of 2013. It has been a great year although there are some downs in it. Nonetheless I am thankful with what had happened and I have learnt a lot throughout the year. Highlight of the year would definitely be Lee Hom's concert in Genting and this time around I made sure I get to shake his hand. It is definitely a dream come true and the icing on the cake would be attending the concert with Sarah =)

Couldn't ask anything more than that. Later in April we actually had some conflict. It took me about six months to let things cool down. I must say time is the best cure to any conflicts.

Thankfully this semester things go to place by itself. Monkey run was the start to a good semester. Met her at the sports centre. Attended the sports award night with Sarah and threw an early birthday celebration for her. Great that we are friends again =)

My First Flight

Exactly one month ago on the twenty ninth of February which only happen once every four years is a memorable day for me.

I finally get to board an aeroplane. I am heading to Korea for an exchange programme.

It would be greater if I were assigned to a seat which is next to the window!

Checking in

So close to the aeroplane =)

Boarding the plane

me and the plane =)

It took about six hours to arrive in Korea! Korea is very cold!

Flashback for Twenty Eleven

I must say twenty eleven was a great year and I believed I have enjoyed myself throughout the year.

On the twenty first of May, my family and I had one of the best buffet dinner at KL Tower. At the Revolving Restaurant. It was pretty much a cool experience when it comes for free!

From the month of June till the month of August, I had one of the best working experience ever! I was working in the airport and I have met a lot of nice people.

Went to Ipoh for a day trip with Moon and friends.

Third semester began in the month of September and at the same time I got promoted. I became a Supervisor. No more promoter job for me.

Being a Supervisor is definitely not as fun as being a promoter!

Learnt a lot as a Supervisor! Got to know more people!

Fall for someone that is brilliant and influential.

Next to nothing seventeenth of December became the best day of my life.

Had a great time with her!

We ate Taiwan Sausage and Snowflake.

For the first time I felt that Taiwan Sausage is sweet instead of spicy hot!

Tried Snowflake best seller for the first time.

We talk like as if we knew each other for a very long time when we only got to know each other better on the day itself.

Won my third Sukmum medal on the eighteenth of December. Silver in the power walk event. Lost to the Champion by the most ridiculous time!

Sukmum Gold Medal remain elusive for me!

Meet new people in the Track and Field event!

Twenty Eleven definitely was a great year for me!

Astro Star Quest 2011 Finals

I have been watching this programme for ten years.Back then it was called the Astro Talent Quest.For the first time top three were all females.In addition to that, I got all five position right although I didn't come up with a prediction post for this time like what I did back then.

Geraldine as expected was crowned Champion!

First runner up goes to Jie Ying.

Second runner up goes to Miko.

At first I thought Miko would get second because when they were going back to their respective home town to perform, Miko was second to go back to her home town to perform.Nonetheless she was pretty good apart from the final performance for the night.

Jie Ying started poorly that night but as the competition went on she got better!She just couldn't let her fans down.The final song she sang was the best for the night.She sang Eason's Chan " Fou Kua " and according to one of the judges this song is a very good song for competition and the way Jie Ying perform it was just the way it supposed to be perform in a competition.That might very well be the reason why Miko got third.

Geraldine deserved to get the Champion because she was consistent throughout the night.I like the part when she sang Siti Nurhaliza's Bukan Cinta Biasa and Ding Dang's " Wo Ai Ta ".

However I think she lost quite a number of fans when she thanked her boyfriend when she was crowned champion.

That night there were five very talented kids were invited to perform on stage.Their performances are awesome!

After the first performance by two of the male kids, the host actually pointed to their fans.She was trying to indicate where was the exact position of their fans that were mostly at their age but she used her middle finger while she was indicating.
