Yikes. It's been two months since my last update. How y'all been doing? Work's been kinda hectic for me. I don't even pop by LJ / DW much lately. So I humbly apologize for not very up-to-date with all of you *hugs*

Although that might change once I get over these two weeks. I'm currently taking a two-week intensive course on radiation protection at Nuklear Malaysia. So after the class is done, I'll get myself registered for the exam and hopefully (fingers crossed), I'll be able to obtain the certification to become a Radiation Protection Officer (RPO). I have a mixture of in awe + happy + freaking out that I'm taking such a qualification. I think it's a good career move, though. Especially since it's a professional qualification, and I think Malaysia is well on her way to have more nuclear based applications in the future, especially in medicine.

So anyway, here are all the other updates:
  • Kalafina's third album. I HAS IT. Haha... yeah, I think I recall posting that I'd be pre-ordering this CD. And that I certainly did. It just arrived today, so I'm still in the process of listening to the songs. Unfortunately, I'm still in training period (every day 8.30am - 5pm) so I don't have time to scan all the lovely pics from the booklet. If say.... by this weekend (?) or next week, I find nobody sharing the album over at jpop_uploads, I'll rip mine and post it there. I plan to scan the booklet anyway for my own keeping, so if I upload it, it will most definitely include the booklet scans.
  • Oh yeah, I got the First Press Bonus, so I got this mousepad. It's pretty, but it's kinda small  ><
  • Decided one day to randomly watch an episode of Natsume Yuujinchou San. And got hooked instantly XD And began a Natsume Yuujinchou marathon of the first 2 seasons. And bought Natsume Yuujinchou manga Vol 8 at Kinokuniya (haha... yes, I'm extreme). I have a penchant for this type of slice of life anime... even if it does involve youkai :P
  • Talking about extremes... I got hooked reading this manga called Black Bird. Finished reading whatever is scanlated, and I got hooked, bewitched, enchanted, mesmerized, and all the other similar meaning words you care to list from a thesaurus ----- to go download all the raw scans I could find of this manga. Found out I could only get until Vol 12 of the Japanese scans, so I went and bought Vol 13 and 14 (the latest) from Kinokuniya so that I can read the story. And yes, it's in Japanese. The Viz releases are only up to Vol 10. I can't wait so long for the official English version, so I bought the Japanese ones. I'm amazed at myself sometimes ><
  • Went to KLCC a few weeks ago, and managed to spend up to a few hundred ringgit on just books --- at Kinokuniya and Bookfest Malaysia (they were holding it at the Convention Centre there). Cheap books on sale. I just went @_@  oooh, what to choose, what to choose? And bought like, a bunch of stuff + manga. No idea when I'll finish this bunch XD

Uh, so sorry. Felt like in my absence of posts, I'm making it up with these incoherent updates. Anyway, I'll try to catch up with what everyone's up to :)

Dear Mierin,

Reading fanfics while there are more urgent things to do is not cool. Seriously girl, get your ass moving.

Yours sincerely,
Your concerned Self

. . . Is what I'd like to tell myself at the moment, but these fanfics are just NGGGHH so much ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ I wanna read more XD

Okay, I don't read that much anyway, but somebody MAKE ME STOP!

*sigh* Can I have another extra day off, please?

OMG multiple new chapters of Gakuen Babysitters?!


BRB enjoying the cute little kids XD

Happy Valentine's Day to those celebrating it! :)

I'm not sure what's the current price of flowers and chocolates currently, but I suppose the price for flowers especially, would probably be at least double the normal price range? I'm always surprised at how much flowers cost nowadays. Of course, it also depends on what other accessories/decorations you put in the bouquet, as well as shipping them off to the recipient if one requests to have it delivered instead of handing it yourself.

But still, I wish it were not simply a tactic by the proprieters to get us to spend more than we should.

And speaking of chocolates, I suddenly have a HUGE craving for some good quality chocolate. I wonder if there are any patisserie here in Kuala Lumpur that specializes in chocolates. Or a chocolatier, really. In Japan, I believe the ladies are the ones who give chocolates to the person they like. Or just simply giving out chocolates to acquaintances they are friendly with [the difference between honmei chocolates and giri chocolates, but let's not get too in depth about that... and yes, I have been watching too many animes and reading too much manga, couldn't you tell? :P  but it's a good learning material for my Japanese language studies! *is shot* XD]

Thanks to a certain series, I now have the crazy idea of going out to buy some good quality chocolate couverture, and make something special with it. Yeah, I wonder how much it would cost, and then I would have check what kind of ingredients are in it, in case there are some things that I can't eat. It's not like I care so much about celebrating Valentine's Day anyway. I just want to eat chocolates.


But it would be nice if I could get some really good and delicious cooking chocolate, so I can make chocolate pear pudding. Tomorrow is a public holiday here, afterall. Buy some canned pears and choco powder, get home and start making the pudding, melt the cooking chocolate and drizzle a really generous amount over the just baked pudding.....


Is getting delusional. Time to go out for lunch.

Allow me to spam you with the latest tunes I've been hearing.

Suddenly had an impulse to listen to Gundam Seed Destiny songs and had a very profound "Ara, natsukashii~~~~!!!" feeling. And it also surprised me that even though I used to love this song so much, I'd actually never seen the PV before! Hence the post XD

And I can't believe how absolutely hooked I am with UxMishi right now! It's crazy! The fact that I think Nojima Kenji sounds awesome is so not helping. I find myself resisting the urge to check if he had actually done any anime songs. I am so, so rooting for a second season to Kaichou wa Maid-sama right now. Because then we might get more UxMishi :P

And I am also amazed that I'm actually crazy enough to type out the whole romaji lyrics of the album (because I couldn't find any lyrics posted at that time... or was I looking at the wrong place?)

I barely even log in to Dreamwidth anymore nowadays. Terrible, I know. Haven't been on LJ much either.

Less than a week left and September will come to a close, and I find myself with a growing list of to-do things, with a sinking feeling that it's going to take a hell of a long time to complete >.<

And come October, I will also start freaking out about my upcoming piano exam. Wonderful, self. When are you going to start practising more regularly instead of just the weekends? I even paid for the exam fees myself (about RM300+), since I've already started working and thought if I paid for it with my own hard earned money, I might be more motivated to actually work towards practising the exam pieces more.

Tough luck. Barely touched my piano during the weekdays. I don't have willpower for this kind of stuff.

On the fandom front, finally watched the end of UraBoku, K-On!!, and Kuroshitsuji S2. Was very happy with UraBoku and K-On!!'s endings, although I am secretly wishing UraBoku will have another season. I need more Reiga/Kanata, please :3

Kuro 2's ending surprised me. And for a while it gave me a WTF?! feeling. Will there be some kind of OVA airing anytime soon? Of course, I don't think it will warrant another season, given how things ended. But still... it left me feeling unsatisfied.

Thank goodness the manga seems to have been done with the Sebastian Holmes arc (lol :P). Hope we'll get a much more interesting arc after this. Not that it wasn't interesting, just that it doesn't seem to pique my interest all that much.

On work, my contract should end this September, but I've extended it to another 3 months. A colleague will be undergoing surgery on her spine soon (she has a slight scoliosis, making her spine curve like a C shape, although you can't really tell under clothes), so I'll be helping them out, since she'll have to go for rehabilitation after the surgery, and won't be coming in to work until January 2011.

Even though I'm happy I won't be jobless anytime soon, I'm kinda sad cause I probably won't see her much until my contract ends. Still haven't done any serious job hunting, and it's one of the things in my untouched to-do list right now. Really, I'm pretty hopeless at keeping deadlines >.<

Trying not to make my LJ and DW inactive by posting after such a long period of just logging in occasionally to read my Friends Page.

Sorry for dropping out for such a long time. So many things happened lately that I just lost interest to write much.

In summary, this is pretty much what happened:
  • Piano exam schedule and registration mishap. Totally ruined my Saturday by making me in a bad mood.
  • Mid-sem tests - which was a disaster, sadly, despite studying :(
  • Career fair at uni last week - was on the lookout for potential companies I could send resumes to.
Basically, I can't believe I'm going to start working soon. Need to send out my resume more now. If only my CGPA was higher... >.<

More updates when I feel like writing.
