Today I was about 5 inches away from getting hit by another %$#@! car. I had the bageezus scared outta me. My first thought when I saw that car inches from my side of the car was “I’M SCREWED!!! I GOT HIT.” STUPID @#$%!@#$% driver!!

I was on my way to Crowne Square for lunch and I used the Foochow Road route after Uni. So I was heading towards to the traffic light and this white Kenari was in front of me. It was a double lane way so I decided to use the left lane as there were less cars on that lane. So, I drove past this Kenari (who was on the right lane) and when I past it half way, he (DAMN YOU!) decided he wanted to use the left lane as well.

Without looking OR signaling, he decides to swerve left and almost damn near killed me! (okay, maybe that’s too melodramatic). I looked to my right and saw the front of this DAMN white Kenari just inches away hitting me, exactly on my door! My first thought was HONK like hell and stepped on the accelerator in hopes I could avoid the collision but in my mind I thought “SHIT!! I’M DOOMED!!” Seconds later, I heard nothing (except my honking) I stopped and opened my door, looked behind me and this IDIOT looked at me and then away and continued talking to his friend who was with him as if NOTHING had happened. I was PISSED FURIOUS!!!

I will admit that it was scary and I was shaking a while after that because it was THAT close. I can still remember looking to the right and seeing how close the headlights were to me. It could only be around 5-6 inches.

So people, the next time you decide to change lanes while driving, PLEASE check first to see if any cars are coming. Not only are you risking your own life, you are also risking the lives of others such as me who wants to get married, travel the world and enjoy life with her loved one. Thank you in advance.


I just got back from dinner with my mom at the Japanese Restaurant at Crowne Square. I’m not too sure of it’s exact name. I had my favorite California Maki *DROOL*. I didn’t bring my camera so no pictures of the mouth-watering-deliciouslylooking-scrumptious food.

It was a nice dinner with my mom. We talked about things, especially those about the family. Lots of things are happening. I have a cousin getting married early next month. She decided not to have any bridesmaids or maid of honor which I was kind of glad because last year she wanted me to be one of her bridesmaids. To be honest I was excited then and was all hyped up on losing weight so I would look good in “The Dress”. Unfortunately, instead of losing weight I’ve gained some weight from when Rob was here. We ate a lot and hung out at the apartment watching TV a lot. LOL So I am kinda glad that I don’t have to do it because the last thing a beautiful bride needs is a fat girl ruining her pictures HAHAHAHAHA

But I do have a problem though. I have a dress for the wedding. It’s a light blue lacey halter dress which I bought from the last trip to Australia. It was half off for AUD$49.90 which was a very good deal for a dress like that. Since it’s a halter dress, I have one HUGE (every pun intended) problem: My HUGE FAT FLABBY like CHICKEN SKIN arms. *sighs* I seriously doubt I can make them look small in about 3 weeks so I guess I will have to make do with what I got now which is actually nothing. Hehehehe

Oh yes, another reason why I get frustrated with myself today. As said earlier I went to Uni this morning because I had a meeting with a professor. The purpose of the meeting was to distribute work among us before our class in June. He plans ahead really good. Hehe Anyway, what we had to do was choose 2 from a list of these books and read them so that we can talk about the points and contradictions and our opinions on the books. We were to choose the books we wanted to read and he’ll go get it for us. The books are :-

  1. Francis Fukuyama. State-building: Governance and World Order in the 21st Century
  2. Robert Cooper. The Breaking of Nations: Order and Chaos in the 21st Century
  3. Robert Caplan. The Coming of Anarchy: Shattering Dreams of the Post Cold War
  4. Jeffrey Sachs. The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time
  5. Jagdish Bhagwati. In Defense of Globalization
  6. Ted Fishman. China Inc: How the Rise of the Next Superpower Challenges America and the World
  7. Clyde Prestowitz. Three Billion New Capitalists
  8. Amy Chua. World on Fire

Initially I chose #1 and #7 because I felt it was related to my thesis. Professor says #1 and #7 don’t go together as they are not related to each other. Okay, fine I’ll take #6 and #7 then cause I have book #6 (I thought I was doing him a favor by mentioning that so that he doesn’t need to get me the book from the library). BUT I had to say it! I had to tell him I had the Ted Fishman book. *UGH* Professor goes “Actually #7 and #8 are a better combination. Tell you what, why don’t you do 3 books. Read Fishman, Prestowitz and Chua and we’ll talk about it when we meet for class.” I sat there DUMBFOUNDED as to what I had just done. I HAD to open my BIG FAT mouth! I practically asked for it. Sometimes I just don’t understand myself. Why do I put myself in such situations???

I know, I know. It’s reading not dancing naked across campus. Yeah, it’s not THAT bad. Actually, it’s a good thing for me if you look at it in a more optimistic way. I’ll gain more than loose…..I…think. *Wonders if I’ll be able to watch TV as oppose to reading. Bleah* But why am I not estatic then? I just can’t believe I did that to myself. I totally set myself up for it. It’s kinda funny when I think about it. Heh

I think I’ve rambled enough for today. I don’t think I’ve written a post this long in a while. Enjoy it while it lasts my “readers”. Tata
