I absolutely love. . . .

Posted in all things beautiful, Inspiring, Random but yet significant, the things i think of before i sleep on May 7, 2011 by jiunnli

1. Solitude sol·i·tude/ˈsäləˌt(y)o͞od/

The state or situation of being alone.

We are in a fastmoving world, where it is almost difficult to find time for yourself. I sometimes see solitude as a luxury.  It is among the weirdest feelings one can experience. Bitter sweet I called it and I absolutely love it.

The best part of being alone is that, well. . . .you are alone. You allow your mind to wander into the impossible, you hold on to your favourite book and read for hours, you take off your shoes and walk in the rain or even just spending quiet moments with God. We can be in awe of the beauty of the living world He has created for us.  How can one not appreciate their time alone? Go on, try for yourself =)

2. Cupcakes plural of cup·cake

I wish I could bake. Well, I can bake, but wait, I don’t think I can. A standard cupcake uses the same basic ingredients as standard-sized cakes such as butter, eggs, sugar and flour. Add abit of colour, a touch of your favourite flavour, a hint of joy and all things nice and all your sorrows will seem so far away. It is the little things that content me. Or least I want to be.  Give me a cupcake, you will know that you have added some sunshine into my day =)

My all time favourite? Red velvet cupcakes =)

3. Shop·ping/ˈSHäpiNG/

Shopping is one of my greatest pleasure and they never fail to cheer me up! Its the smell of the malls and how all the pretty things are laid on the shelf. Its that feeling you get when the lady pass you your shopping bag, gosh, it is so exciting. Each time after shopping I also enjoy thinking about the combination of the clothes I bought with the ones I’ve already got and how it would go with this and that and and and . . .  I can’t resist pretty dresses and shoes!

You know what absolutely works for me? Shopping retailing.  Doesn’t matter what and where, so long there is bargain… even better =)

4. Travelling present participle of trav·el /ˈtræv əl/ Show Spelled [trav-uh l]

I absolutely LOVE to fly. Traveling to someplace I’ve not been before is one of my favorite things to do though I am not exactly adventurous, as some of friends who has traveled with me before would claim. I love the airport and the planes. I absolutely love the feeling of stepping off the plane. I don’t know. All I could feel is freedom and the excitement, as you begin to wander where your feet takes you.

Furthest I’ve traveled was Australia. I am not surprised if I said thats my favourite place to be. Hoping to go to the States so that I can do what the things I love doing in no. 3 &5. I do think I would wanna do England one winter. Who wants a white christmas?I know I do!  Oh oh, not forgetting Italy- the vatican city, the Colosseum, the Trevi fountain where I am dying to throw a coin to make a wish, more museums, galleries, the historical buildings, theater, music, great restaurants, streets fun to roam. AAaaaaah! STOP!

So, where would you like to travel to next? Go see the world, don’t limit yourself. No matter how many places you have been in this world, you’ll find another and another and another still waiting to be explored.

5. Photography pho·tog·ra·phy/fəˈtägrəfē/

Don’t know much about editing and all the terms used in photography. I don’t know which angle gives the most light, or what aperture means. I don’t know which lens does what, and all I know I just wanna click away, taking photos of details, people, life, memories, creation and all the beauty I can possibly capture in my camera.

6. Dancing present participle of dance

I am naturally not a dancer. In my childhood, I took up music lessons. I play the piano. Mum gave us the best by sending us to the best piano teacher in the state. She did not see dance as how my sis and I see it. However, we were still very much blessed as it was equally amazing plus music is very closely tied to dancing. It was only recently that I took up dancing and why I love dancing? You learn to love your body and feel good about yourself. It sure is another form of therapy for you girls out there=)

7. Seven is a perfect number no?

How can I enjoy all these without my friend and loved ones, who stood by you through rain and shine.They are the reason why we go through life each day=)

So tell me, whats are the 7 things you absolutely love?

To bangkok with love….er, not really….

Posted in Friends, girlies and all that matters =), Travel on April 18, 2011 by jiunnli

The girls and I went to Bangkok for a weekend in February. We bought our tickets last november and the next thing you know, the weekend has arrived. I couldn’t thank Jovy enough for settling the accommodation because we couldnt decide if we should splurge on an expensive room.

It was an okay trip but rather tiring because we din really plan much beforehand. So everything was very much touch-and-go. I was terrible as i was not adventurous at all. To say the least, i din quite like Bangkok =P

Nevertheless, its a good trip with the girls and I would wanna do this again! but this time, lets go somewhere clean =P

See the happy faces!

Jo and I with Airasia. Thanks, now everyone really, really can fly.

Landed on a beautiful Saturday morning. Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Taylors Open Day: Taylors School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts

Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2010 by jiunnli

I am a final year student studying in Taylors Business School, School of Accounting and Finance and I wanted to know more about other schools in Taylors and hence I decided to attend Taylors Open weeks ago. I came across Taylors School of Hospitality and Tourism and I must say, what Taylors has was awesome! Besides the fact that I got lost in their huge state-of-the-art kitchen. . . . .

Station 1

Station 2

Station 3

Teaching classes with kitchen settings

I almost salivated looking at the dish created by the students (who were actually undergoing their final exams on that day itself). Nothing beats catching these students in action! They all looked so professional, running up and down the hallway, busying away. . . .

One of the student that were rushing down the hallway with four plates on him, managed to stop and pause while i take a photo. . .!haha!

It was funny, and I had my friend’s Nikon D70 and forgive me if some photos turn out really bad. My nikon wasn’t behaving like it should and it was difficult to handle it and hence, wasted alot of time on just adjusting the ISO and the shutter speed (seriously, I don’t even know what i am talking about now). Anyway, what took place last saturday wasn’t like any other Open day held by other universities. Read on, and you’ll see what i mean =)

So before I tell you more about TCHT, I am proud to say that Taylors Open Day last weekend was a HUGE SUCCESS!

We have. . . .

Hot air Balloon was a hit! (next to the commercial block)

Opportunity to test drive a student designed car built by Formula Varsity Race Champion Team (School of Engineering)

After learning more about this school,I think I should’ve taken up this course instead. Then, being in the kitchen wouldn’t be such a misery. That afternoon, I was given the chance to wander around the kitchen space without and restrain and I was introduced to almost every area of TCHT.

I know its cliche but I am going to say it anyway. Coming to Taylors has been the best decision I’ve ever made the moment I decided to do my tertiary studies here. It has been an incredible journey coupled with lots of  life-changing events and this I want for many, given other options available. All universities are similar in the courses they offer, and how fancy their building get each year or perhaps a less-frustrating parking system but its not what lies within the white bricks, its the experience, the people who will make a difference in you and the value of life that you yearn for. I’ve found what I’ve been looking for as I complete my final year in Taylors School of Accounting and Finance, what about you?

Break my heart for what breaks Yours

Infidelity, unfaithfulness and the violation of trust.

The fragility of human relationship.

Indescribable sadness.
