To-Do List

By the end of 2008, I intend to achieve all these.

1. My Chinese characters vocabulary should widen significantly.
I'm having Chinese class lesson with Tiew Mee. By the end of this semestar, I aim to finish the Year One Chinese syllabus and move to Year Two this July. I'm giving myself eight years to be fluent in Chinese reading. Then to politics, here I come!

2. Should be able to swim
As a teacher, I do not know where I will be posting to. Might be rural area or near beach area, where the possibilities of drowning is very high. Learn extra skills to equip my life is good also, right?

3. Watch TVB drama series
I have downloaded tons of TVB drama series thanks to the fast wireless connection in my room. I might move to a room where there won't be anymore internet. But do not sweat, I found a plan - Celcom broadband with an affordable fee every month, I can have unlimited download! Then I will never miss out on TVB series anymore.

4. Learn er-hu - a Chinese instrument
I found the class, thanks to Christine and James. Alpert also willing to lend his er-hu to me. Class begins next July.

5. Learn hip hop dance
Next July starts. A good way to exercise.

6. Gain lots and lots of experience through CSSUKM
To grow spiritually. I am already starting to love the activities and the people in there more and more.

7. At least one vacation with Alvin.
Seriously dear, we need vacation. I give you time till the end of 2008 to plan one, ok? :-p

8. Blog frequently - at least five posts every month
Although with such low rating of readers, I aim to continue to blog. So that years later, I can read back and laugh at myself.

So can I achieve all these?

The Magical Experience

I love music.

Therefore I started to learn guitar when I was 17. Then two years ago, I learned basic keyboard skills from my younger brother.

I enjoy instrumental music. Because it is only music without any lyrics, I can have different interpretations towards it every time when I listen to it. It brings out different emotions and feelings in me.

In UKM, I get to know Christine and Brian through CSSUKM (Yes, both are Catholics!). Christine learned piano at the age of five. You can press a key on the piano, and she will immediately know what key it is - C or D or A or etc. (Damn amazing...) Brian meanwhile learned violin when he was in Primary One. Decades of experience, skills and practice, they are the greatest musicians that I ever get to know in my life.

They are practicing for CSSUKM annual dinner this coming Saturday. I get to record their practice. Here they are.

Simply amazing...


I need to promote CSSUKM.

CSSUKM means Catholic Students' Society UKM. It is a group of Catholic students studying in UKM. Due to its small number of students - roughly 60plus, but during meeting only 25 to 35 will be present - you can't hide. Everyone knows everyone.

Because CSSUKM is not as big as PERKEB (another Christian society in UKM) it was at the verge of being 'dibubarkan'. Hence, the need to promote.

Anyway, last Friday, it was the Annual General Meeting. Old excos are retiring and new excos replace them. The new board:

President : Joyce
Vice P : Stephanie
Secretary : Jeanette
Vice S : Ernie
Treasurer Controller : Hilary
Yet to be decided : Excos for Outreach Ministry, Liturgical Ministry, Website Publication Ministry and Music Ministry.

Joyce and her first speech as the president.

Meanwhile, I am one of the excos as well. (just not sure which ministry will I be serving)

To become an exco, one simply needs to sign a form saying they are willing to serve. Clearly, I signed.

And I never look back since. I will give my all for CSSUKM. In that way, I am giving my all to God as well. I do not want to become only Sunday-goer, I want more. I want to serve Him more.

Are you deep in? Cause I am.

Friends are God's way of taking care of us.

Tonight, I had just spent hours of chatting with my hometown friends in their hostel. We started with simply talking about our current life, how our family and boyfriends are doing, etc.

Then of course, the best part comes. We talked about our secondary school's life. I had forgotten a lot of things, and they reminded me of it. I had a good laugh at my own ignorance and stupidity in the early years.

Some friends come and go. Some friends are there only during the good times. I am blessed to find friends that know the 'stupid me' in the early years and still accept me for who I am now. I can't go back to secondary life anymore, but I can always revive it when meeting up with my schoolmates.

I love Sarikei. I love the people there. I love the fact that despite so many years, we still are together as friends - through the ups and downs.

Next year will be our last year in UKM. And Kim Ling will be joining this July. I sometimes wonder how it will all turn out for us after graduation.

But one thing for sure. During my wedding day, please do come back from wherever you are and help me bully the groom. I promise you a big packet of angpow. :-)

Missing You

I am feeling terribly down right now.

I just had a wonderful weekend with my sister and her husband. It was really really really great.

To the point that, when I need to leave her at Wangsa Maju LRT, I actually started crying in the LRT - much to the curiosity of the people around me. I did not want to leave her that soon. There is still so much left unsaid...

Now, I miss her terribly. She has been everything to me, my best friend, my mentor, my everything.

I never miss anyone this much.

Kampong Ah Liang

Hi. My name is Lee Mei Fon and I am 22 years old.

I was born in Sarikei. Then my family moved to Kuching, Kapit and back to Sarikei when I was 11 years old.

When I was 15, I was baptized with the name Bridget. Half a year later, I was confirmed with the name Patricia. Hence, my full name is Bridget Patricia Lee Mei Fon. But no one call me that.

Years ago, my nickname is Sarikei Sakai or country bumpkin. I do not know a lot of stuff. I was 18 when I fully understood why people giggles at the number 69.

Anyway, I was packing my stuff when I saw this.

I bought it months ago, and I never have the chance to use it yet. So, at the age of 22, I owe my first sunglasses. Pathetic...
So when wanna go beach? Anyone?

Lent Season

We Catholics are now entering the Holy Week of Lent Season. We have one last week before Good Friday arrives. I reflected over the four pass weeks. Have I been obedient? Have I fast and pray enough? Have I been a good example? Sadly, all those questions do not have positive answers.

Hence, on Friday, after the CSS talk, I decided to go to the Adoration Room. It has been years since I last stepped into one. Adoration Room used to be my favourite hang-out place after my SPM. Now, that was years ago... Too many things burden my mind lately, to the point that I seriously need some comfort. I ended up spending an hour - talking to Jesus. Pouring out my everything. And I definitely feel a lot better. Love overcomes everything! And with God's love, so much the better.

Anyway, that was days ago. Feeling much better now. Besides, with assignments mountain piled high, I don't really have time to worry about my insignificant problems. Last night, I went to church with Mark. There was a reading - let me type it out for you.

Matthew 26:52 (the High Priest's slave's ear was cut and Jesus said)
Put your sword back in its place. Don't you know that I could call on my Father for help, and at once he would send me more than twelve armies of angels?

Since I was currently at that time busy doing the translation assignment for Comparative Literature course, I try to translate it into Malay this.

Letak pedangmu balik ke tempat asalnya. Kamu semua tidak tahu kah? Saya boleh panggil saja Bapaku untuk pertolongan. Dan dengan segera, dia akan hantar lebih daripada 12 pasukan askar malaikat.

and the Chinese version...




Sorry, sorry. I forgot I'm Chinese illiterate. Anyway, read back the Malay version, and try to use it in daily conversation. One thing popped into my mind.

Wow...Jesus sure is showing off...

That sentence is show off. Not humble. Couldn't he just said, "Henti, tangkaplah saya." That's all. Why need to put that extravaganza details?

But Jesus is the most humble person you would ever find on earth. He doesn't mean to show off. And a realization hits me.

What is showing off? What is humble? All these are abstract concepts. I might feel that Jesus is showing off, but he is definitely not. We look and judge based on the concept that we learn from the human around us. And that is how it is with human relationship. The things we say, the action we do, we might meant no harm, but others might have interpret it the other way round. They might have feel offended, malicious and discomfort.

So what to do? I don't know also oh. If people wanna think that way, we can't stop it right?

In conclusion, live simple, be simple. May your Lent Season is a fulfilling one this year. And wishing you an early Happy Easter!

My hair

I used to have really thick and bushy hair. I loved that hair a lot. It's very black and very healthy. Very easy to get oily too. And got lots of dandruff. But still, I love my thick hair very much.Disaster strike after I straighten my hair. Following the steps of many other Ah Liangs, I straighten my hair. I remember I sat for six hours just to get my hair done.
Then, strands of hairs started to fall down everyday. Lots of hairs.

And so i started to be afraid that I will be bald. It has been two years since I last straighten my hair, but clumps of hair still fall down every morning, after washing my hair etc etc. What if I become like this? Ok lah, I know I dun look bald, I look like I have some kurap disease. But it is hard to do Photoshop with pictures, the two colour tones are not the same, I am simply suck in art.

However, back to the point. What if I become bald? Huhu...

Happy Day!!

I am very very very very the happy today.

Are you wondering why?


I just bought 45 mini Doraemon comics from The Mines.

It's in Chinese and I am not Chinese educated. However, I am very motivated to read it. I am also very motivated to study Chinese. :-)

Yeah, can't wait to read it all!!

You're green, the color of growth and vigor. Good-hearted and giving, you have a knack for finding and bringing out the best in people. Green is the most down-to-earth color in the spectrum — reliable and trustworthy. People know they can count on you to be around in times of need, since your concern for people is genuine and sincere. You take pride in being a good friend. For you, success is measured in terms of personal achievement and growth, not by status or position. Rare as emeralds, greens are wonderful, natural people. It truly is your color!

Try this out at

It's cool. It's good to waste our time. Especially with so many assignments to do now, it is a good place to chill out, as well as to get to know more about ourselves. However, don't believe everything it said. If our whole attitude and lives can be known just by answering some questions, life would have been very easy. But we all know it is not. Anyway, happy trying out!

Xandria the coward

I seldom check my friendster, especially my comments and testimonials in friendster. Hence, when I check my account, I am surprised to see a hate testimonial from someone called Xandria.

Well, we all have the freedom to speak out our mind right? I accept the fact that he/she hated me, but hell, tell me why la... But on the other hand, Xandria is nothing but a coward, only daring to complain about me behind a fake identity. From the grammar that Xandria wrote, I can somehow connect it to someone who wrote the same way, but then it's not good to make unclear assumption. Later the consequences will be worst.

So Xandria, use your real name, your real identity and face me. Stop being a coward!

What does the future hold for Malaysia?

I heard a shocking news today. There are rumours that riots might happened after the election. The news figuratively makes my heart stops beating. I felt like I had just receive death news from someone closed to me.

Apparently, according to my source (if it was correct la), the current situation is that the opposition holds a stronger chance of winning this general election. These few days, I have been reading newspaper fervently, and I notice a glaring question. Where is he? Our current Prime Minister seldom hits the headlines lately, which I think is critical with the election days just around the corner. He should say something, do something to promote BN and to build confidence among the people. But hell,where is he now? Hence it is no surprise that the opposition currently holds a stronger chance of winning.

I am not into politics. I think politics is full of lies, conceit and avarice. But I am definitely into Malaysia's peacefulness. After the election, I am scared that 1969 will happened again. I am scared that we won't be able to enjoy the peaceful life we have now. I am scared that we won't be a multicultural and multiracial country anymore. I am scared that once the evil is unleashed, people life will be taken for granted and killing will pursued. I am truly scared.

Friends have advised me to stay in my room for this weekend. It is simply too dangerous to go outside since we won't know what will happen this weekend. My wish now is that, whatever happens, it is for the best for Malaysia.

Ungku Omar Karnival Varic-C

It was 1445 and I was learning Chinese. Yesterday, I had my first Chinese tuition class with Tiew Mee and I wanted to do my revision. Chinese characters are so confusing...

Suddenly, I heard a very familiar voice calling out to me outside my room. It was Hakim. He asked me to go watch him sing at my college. So I went lo.

Anyway, before that, this is how Ungku Omar is now with the carnival in full swing.Ayamas booth. Last night, I hang out with Jaime, Pris, Cat, Jey and Emm at here till almost 1am. Some of the food is nice, some not. I found Hakim practising his song here. He was very anxious for his turn. :-)

Rumah puaka. I so wanna go in and experience it last nite, however only Pris obliged. So we ended up, sitting at the Ayamas booth while listening to the screams. It was only opened for one night.

Ok, back to Hakim. So here before he sang.
And while singing.
As predicted, he is in the top five. Tomorrow, he will compete in the final with the other four finalists. Good luck!
