Every now and then I quietly reminisce the life of being a student. How we get to wake up late, rush for assignments, do research, take part in activities, sleep at ungodly hours, wake up in time for brunch, and occasionally missing a few lectures plus all the dramas (hahah I just had to add!) =P
Ohh those carefree days.

Watching the video that Luke shared reminded me why being a student was the best time of my life.
Just wanted to share bits and pieces of the good ol' uni and college days I'd like to remember.
Pictures tell a thousand words, I'll let them tell you my Once Upon a Time story..
#1 Meet my high school friends - Charlene and Charmaine (that I loveeee to bits!)
Once, the girls came all the way up to KL just to show their support in Project Superstar --back when I was..19?! Sorry, my gold fish memory gets in the way at times..
Here's one with my girl friends from primary/secondary school..
From left: Mel, Michelle, Dee and I
We became the "sisters" at our good friend, Jasveen's engagement party then:
This was when I had to get a Saree because we were told to dress "accordingly" heheh
But the Saree came into good use for the Fashion Show for Monash Cultural Night back in 2009.
Here's a video I found on YouTube of the fashion show:
#2 Things I have done or at least tried before I turned twenty one..
Meet Ken Chang.
This was taken at the Street Carnival back in 2008 after our performance as a dance crew =)
My attempt at hip-hopping in case you're wondering, this was the video that Luke shared:
..back in 2008 when I was only nineteen turning twenty.
Took part in a few competitions back then, it was the only free time I had and it was also through all these that I started modeling, emceeing and accepting photo shoot offers. But of course, not full time, it was merely for the experience.
There was the Watsons YOU Awards:
and then DG Color where I met a few wonderful people:
They gave me an opportunity at emceeing..
And then there was the Monash pageant when I was twenty..
Great memories <3
That was not long after my twentieth birthday.
Meet Jeffy the Teddy:
He too, like Ken Chang enjoyed tossing me in the air =D this was taken at my twentieth birthday.
I kid, Jeffy! =P
Of course as a student there were "stressful" times, when we stayed up late for assignments.
One thing I miss the most was being part of the council, organizing activities. My first project- the Orientation bash for new students - a trip to Port Dickson for 200 pax!
and the extremely tedious Orientation week for both semesters:
With Jee Van, the mascot from Science faculty.
My favourite mascot from the faculty of Arts:
With my hardworking team, who at times wanna kill me! =P
Shaz and I almost three years back.
Stumbled upon this in my old album. I was excited when my college published an article of my experience as a student in Monash.
hahah sounds silly reading it now.Of course with the hard work, comes the partying! =D
Been there, done that!
It was also then I met talented people like this guy here.
Meet Ray Cheong, extremely talented singer--he still has the best cover of Gravity by John Mayer.
Playing pool was my favourite thing to do after dinner.
Dawn and I also attempted our own stall selling pre loved items hahah
We called it The Bargain Haven - Dawn and I
Other things that I like reminiscing,
Another good friend's wedding- Xanthus and Lina where we performed all our favourite tunes for the lovebirds.
All these in just a couple of years, how time flies. I wished we were there a little longer, can I not grow up? =P
TIME SLOW DOWN PLEASE.
It's the beginning of July now, which means I still have another 29 days before I'm another year older -__-" so please allow me to reminisce hahah! Looking forward to my first trip to Langkawi in a couple of hours.
