Hello!!! The name's Mervin. Loves photography, shopping, coffee, and my friends. I can fill this little section with so much crap to scare you away, but... enough, I think? XD

Dead, My Ass! - 30.01.09

No, this blog is not dead. It's just one of my many breaks due to my studies. Speaking of which,


Wasn't such a tough one, despite this semester being one of my laziest. Details? Nope.

Pictures about past, present, and future? Hell yes.

The days BEFORE the exam, Part 1.

After spending almost everyday nerding at the library till 8 p.m., the thrill of exams is... gone. I can't believe it. GONE. Just like that. Didn't feel scared at all, no panic attacks, no stress, nope.

Still, life was on repeat mode during those few days.

Wake up at 8 something, catch the bus to Wangsa, go to Kin Wai's house, breakfast at Jie Jie, study, random lunch break at god knows where, study, dinner at Jie Jie, back to hostels and sleep.

Glad that's finally over!

Some random pics:

Loads of gay moments, too.

And what happened next, is up to your imagination.

He only stood that for 1 second.

HAH! If I didn't tell you that, you would've been deceived into thinking he was a breakdancer, right? XP

Oh yes. Genting Klang has a stall that sells veggie fritters. Gloriously yummy and cheap they are, we don't want them any longer.

"Uncle, 3 pieces please. Add more salad and mayonnaise ah, please."

And that was enough.

Ah, the guilt of a dull post. Sorry guys. Still trynna find that blogging streak in me after one month of silence.

Yours truly,
Mervin, desperado.

Chocolate Was In The Air... - 09.01.10

Straight up, Mid Valley's Chocolate Fair was a huge letdown. ZOMFG disappointing! I don't think I've ever felt so let down by chocolate, the sweet indulgence it is, ugh.

The day before, I came up with a fantabulous plan: TAKE AS MANY PHOTOS AS WE CAN, TILL THE CAMERA RUNS OUT OF BATTERIES.

Manatau, the whole thing was so stupid and so boring that we took less than 20 photos that day, seriously. It was THAT boring, believe that.

Rest of the day was spent (literally) treating everyone to good food.

Two cinnamon rolls for the 6 of us, all under my contribution. Huhu

FYI, Saint Cinnamon's Cinnamon Rolls are GOOD. They're like... even better than Cinnabon's or whatever other brand you have in mind. Plus, they're cheap, so how could we not?

Then, Kok Jun treated us all to Auntie Anne's Pretzels - sour cream is the bomb! Fun fact: I've never had an Auntie Anne's before, even when my mom has had one.


KL boy, PHAIL.

The shirts read "When I grow up, I want to be an ENGINEER." So suitable for us! If only they came in 18-year-old sizes.

For the record, I'm quite tall in my class, even though I'm considered dwarven in Subang. Screwed up growth spurt screwed me along with it. Peggy says it's a lack of sleep during my teenage years.

OH WTF I'M STILL A TEENAGER LAAH! I vow to sleep early from now on, ok? See if that adds up another 10 cm.

Yours truly,
Mervin, I'm dreaming, but so what?

P.S. Samson got us Beard Papa's cream puffs, too. The original ones are still better, green tea sucked like mad.

Shit, shit, shit. - 04.01.10

What a great way to kickstart the new year! In the library, STUDYING. Exams are like less than 2 weeks away. Am I prepared?

Shit hell no.

I've neglected this sem. Not because I'm lazy ok! It's because the lecturers aren't helping much, and the subjects are tough! Insanity! This is me speaking in exclamations because I'm so stressed just thinking about exams!

Doing the math, I realized I've like 2 more days to cover each subject. Okay la. Do-able.

So it's time to open up my books, except the one that has a Face- in front of it.

Gambateh! To myself, and to the rest of my class.

Yours truly,
Mervin, stress. Shit, shit, shit.

I See You. - 02.01.10

My verdict on the movie? One word. Simple, really.

The animations put Transformers to shame (BOOOO!), especially the wars between the Na'vi and the humans. Gobsmacking.

The storyline? Good enough, although I could've sworn I saw it on some Chinese drama. There wasn't much jokes, too, but when one did crack up, it's guaranteed to make you laugh.

What's it about, just go watch it youself, I seriously recommend it like I've never recommended any other movie. And you may just find yourself going "alalalalalalalalalalalaalala!!!!". Again, just watch the frickin' movie.

Cinemas rated the movie 13PG, but I'll give it an awesome 9/10. It really deserves it!

On Wednesday, there was a shit heehhll long line, and I couldn't see what the hold-up was all about. Samson (FYI, the tallest) told me what it was. I couldn't hear, and he told me to see for myself.

But how can I see what's at the front of the line, when......

I'M SHORT LAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! *sob sob*

Boys are supposed to grow till they're 21 or something, or so the Biology books say. My stupid growth spurt stopped at 16. S-I-X-T-E-E-N.

Puberty, my ass! *fingers up*

Here's something. Samson says Choy Leng's cursed when it comes to taking photos. Her head's either chopped in half, or totally invisible. And he's got a point.

Hahah. Maybe I am taller than I think. Yaaaaaayyyyyy!!!! =D

And he also goes on about me, wolves, and the moon. Above picture says it all. Go figure, lol!

But okay la. I ain't all that bad. So Choy Leng, I'm giving you your own photo, to make up for all the photos you terpotong in.

That one's a little blur. One more!

Went back to Wangsa for a drink at BRJ before going off for Kok Jun's house. Again. This time without his cousin, though, so the room was much more empty.

MY SPACE NOW!!!!! hahahah

What? His house is bloody bloody nice to sleep, okay! Don't look at me weirdly.

Funny how I, the boy who hasn't done much in Wangsa for a year and a half, suddenly seems to spend so much time there.

So Samson, Avatar or Prototype? Must choose one! =X

Woke up early the next day just for class. Sigh, it's hard studying when you've just had so much fun.

Is it them, or do I ALWAYS choose the same clothes as my friends? At night, he decided to wear sleeveless, while I brought my sleeveless shirt out. Next morning, I brought the only orange shirt I had. And then...

The only orange shirt he had.

"Woihhh, change your shirt laah!"


Yours truly,
Mervin, the blue sakai. *alalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala!!!!!*

P.S Samson's name keeps poppng up in the post. Maybe becuase we don't always go out with him, and we miss out on the stupid funny things he says. Samson, you don't wanna come out with us more often meh?

P.P.S. I think I look better in shades. To cover my flawed, sepet eyes.

Dilemma. - 26.12.09

I looooooooooooooove Christmas dinners.
But I don't like the
present that comes with them - few million calories.

Thank goodness for high metabolism.

Yours truly,

Gifts Santa Could Never Have Brought. - 24.12.09

Wednesday, Choy Leng brought chocolates for us. Wheeee!!! In Christmas spirits already. But don't you think it's good practice to see the expiry dates before you eat/buy them? :P

First time I've seen chocolates kept beyond expiry dates. It's never happened to me before. Whenever I get chocolates, it's usually in the toilet in... 1 day. Yep.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I gladly declare eating as my passion! Yeah, I rock.

Anyway, to celebrate, DMT2 decided to have a present exchange thing. Everyone gave a gift worth around 10 bucks, so all was fair. The simple thing to do was to get foodstuff, but I wanted better. Not that smart a move, though.

Though I keep telling myself it's the heart that counts, not the present (and definitely not the wrapping paper), DAMN CHEAP LAAH WE ALL! See the wrapping paper? They're newspaper. Spot the one with the foolscap paper, too.

Mine? Hohoho. I'm not gonna show the "wrapping paper" I used.

Along the way, shit happened (yes Kin Wai, there is this phrase). Awkward. I piss you off and you piss me off kinda thing. But it's okay, we get over these things.

What a joke, haha.

Look, I know I said the present doesn't matter. But I've got this obsessive compulsive thinking that I have to get a good present. And indeed, it was good. At least, it was for a few people I was targeting.

Waited, waited and waited to see who'd got my present, but the heavens demanded more suspense, and.... wait for it....


I felt my head drop off after that. Ugh, so suey. Could tell the recipient was not so happy with my present. That triggered the emotions out of me.



Today is Christmas eve *jingles bells*. And I was so desperate for a plan! You can't expect me to glue my ass at home on Christmas eve! Samson wanted to go to Sungei Wang to get his anata (inside joke, guys), and so, 4 sesat people decided to join him.

Dinner was at some random restaurant at the bottom of Times Square.

The soup was orgasmic. First sip = heaven! I crazily love anything honeydew flavored,but I hate the fruit like mad.

And trust me, the mee was good! And this's coming from someone who never liked wantan mee to begin with, mind you.

Long story short, Samson failed in his anata quest, so we wanted to watch Avatar. 3D some more. Samson led the way to some ulu cinema many people (even I) didn't hear of, somewhere on the top floors of Times Square. I've never went that high before, and I seriously never knew about a food court in Times Square, wth.

It's like we bought the whole mall for ourselves, and we were free to scream like idiots if we wanted to. Niiiiiice!

Okay, zombie apocalypse, I'm ready.

Manatau, the cinema was closed. Pfft. What kinda cinema closes at 11 on Christmas eve? Freaks. So we made a last ditch attempt, and went all the way back down again. Tickets were still available when we made it to the queue, but when we reached the counter (seriously reached it) , the cashier told us:

"Sorry, full already."

WTF!!!!!! We wait for half an hour, and there's no tickets. Dammit!!!!

So fine, when we can't watch a movie, what can we do? Imitate.

And still none of us wanted to waste the day, so we ended up playing bowling. Fun times, I swear.

What do you do when this happens?

You'll never guess what we tried. ;)

Called it a day before 12, mainly because Samson had to go to church early the next day. Fought through the crowd, got sprayed in the face a fair few times, and finally, the bus! Packed beyond packing point, though. Literally didn't have room to move.

Ended the night with a drink at BRJ, sirap bandung and Don't Mess With The Zohan before going back to Subang at... 2 in the morning.

Okay. I'm poofed. You can so imagine.

Off to sleep now. Buh-bye!

Yours truly,
Mervin, still wants to watch Avatar.

P.S. Merry Christmas, people!!!!
