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?

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.

I have never actually used my Lenovo Y410's webcam before.

And now that I need to use it, it won't work >.<

Just my luck. I hate computer problems.

Deep Down You Are Sensitive

You're the type of person who notices everything and forgets nothing. You are very in tune with the world.

You feel deeply, and sometimes the silliest things can effect you. You are easily brought to laughter or tears.

You don't show the world how fragile you are. You instead show people how insightful you can be.

You are good at anticipating what's going to happen in your life. You are often the first one to see what's coming.
