Department's Drinkout

Half a bottle of Heneikken, 2 glasses of white wine, 2 glasses of champagne, 2 glasses vokha, and what do you get?

A drunk Melissa.


Yesterday I have attended the department's Christmas Party at Boulevard, Red Dot Building.


The theme for the night was Masquerade Night.


Before the office


Suppose to wear this hideous mask but a bird told me not to, "Get a decent mask!"


Thankfully my super nice senior has got an extra mask, so I got this instead



My fellow teammates at Hong Leong Finance audit.

Then the night finally arrived!

Fellow colleagues!


My best bitching partner, Sandy... too bad Lee Yen has gone Brunei... sob sob...miss u girl!


Lobster whisky! I thought it was pumpkin soup, but turns out to be some minced lobster dipped in whisky. Fantastic combo!




Okay, not really in a mood to blog... still pretty dizzy from last night's drinking... wanna see more pictures? Head down to my facebook!

Merry Christmas ppl!

Do you have supportive friends, families or colleague that brings out the best in you? Sometimes at certain point in life, we are so inspired to make an impact in the world, be it in career, society or life. But things don’t run smoothly because of circumstances and exacerbated with lack of support, the inspiration just gone done the drain.

Since young, I have managed to show a certain degree of curiosity and motivation which I believe may bring me to greater heights in life, but sadly such has not worked to my advantage. I thought I knew what I wanted in life but when I come to my senses, I realized the drive behind me was just pure talk without much substance.

I have always wanted to achieve something in life, something extraordinary or just for the sake of showing off that I am different! But that something is still a mystery to me.

One of my desires in life is to provide the best for my family, shouldering some of the burden and be a role model but in the end, the burden sometimes too overwhelming and cause of that, my personal goals were not achieved.

I never blame fate; in fact, I was told that fate is a lousy excuse used by people who doesn’t bother to do anything with their life, which I found it to be very true. Certain people work hard all their life, but yet they are still at the bottom of the organization and they said they are fated to be as such. Excuses? Perhaps yes, Perhaps not.

I am fated to bear responsibility of the family, fated to be born into a medium working class family where money doesn’t come by easily, fated to be the eldest daughter. No, those are not fate but facts, I am the steward of my own destiny thus I take control of my directions.

Gosh, what am I talking? Don’t bother if you don’t understand, I am not answerable to you but to myself.

Read this blog as suggested by Kenny Sia,

"there are only two ways to live your life, one is as if nothing is a miracle, and the other is as though everything is a miracle".

Albert Einstein

Powerful Quote.

I shall live my life as though everything is a miracle.

"Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem more afraid of life than death".

James F. Byrnes.

Will you grab the opportunity when it comes knocking on your door? To leave your comfort zone and take the road less travelled?

Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood,
and I--I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

Just when you have everything in place, a plan, a formula to success, a burning desire, capital and support but

everything gone with a single answer,

"Sorry, we don't sublet half of the shop"

and the line went dead....

My heart dropped, my world almost collapsed *Metaphorically* and the desire to be an entrepreneur is gone with the wind...

Life is not a bed of roses, without failure, you cannot taste success.

Okay maybe it is not even a failure to start with since i haven't even started it. I can still pursue but now i need bigger capital and be bolder.

When the time is right and when I have executed it, I shall tell you what I am into. Small and insignificant business but if it pays the bill, it is still a business.

God, I know you are testing my endurance, strength and will. I shall persist and handle it differently for I know there are obstacles ahead of me. Thank you for the test, for I know life is not easy and I need time to grow up. Amen.

P/S: Bless my parents who are going Macau/Hong Kong tomorrow. Amen.

7 Days

Seven more days, I shall kiss my P3 paper goodbye and hello freedom.... for a just month >.< before January kicks in and start yet another round of hectic adventure of studying, working and spending times with love ones.

These few days I have been thinking of setting up a business, a real conventional kind of business, brick and mortar not online. My online blog is running okay, with an average of sales of one bag but since everyone is picking up the trend and given the low barrier of entry, orders are pretty slow.

I slept at 4.30am this morning, no, not cause i was studying but I was too engrossed in the planning of my new business. Yesterday, i called up the suppliers and made appointments with some people who are already in the business. My budgetting is almost done but am sorting out the location. Got a few agent's contact but am hoping to sublet a small portion of the shop rather a whole shop by myself.

As i was preparing my business case, I thank Mr Marty Windle!, my P3 lecturer, somehow all the business model that i've learned suddenly makes sense! Hahhaha

I've talked to Alec about this, and he supported my decision but he sure doubts if this fire in me will keep on burning. One thing though, I wont be here to oversee the business. But if this really worked, then I have less one burden off my shoulder. I sure pray it does cause I would be investing my life savings in this, a risk that I must take or risk not taking it.

If I failed *touched wood* I still have plenty of time to rise again.

God, give me the strength and wisdom to tackle this, you have been there all this while, guiding me to the right path, now give me the strength to be brave and confident in what I see a future for my family. Amen!

Got a shock of my life when my sister told me that one of my student has married. (I used to be a part-time tutor).

The most unbelievable thing is that, she was one of my brightest student but subsequently dropped out from school when she was 16 years old.

I taught her for 2 years, when she was still 13/14 years old. But I stopped tutoring her when my classes clashed with her timetable.

Sigh, wonder what would it be, if I continue to tutor her, am pretty sure she wont fall into the wrong crowd. She was like a sister to me.

This student of mine is a very pretty girl and it is not surprisingly that guys constantly try to court her. She does her homework diligently and did very well for her science subject. If my memory doesn't failed me, she even topped her class the first year I taught her.

Not sure what's got into her to take such drastic move to stop schooling but such a pity to have abandoned her education when she has so much in herself. I remembered when I was offered scholarships from UTAR & Nilai International, I wasn't quiet sure which to choose, and showed her some pictures for comparison. Obviously she chose Nilai, (Who wont? Given the resort-feeling kind of place)

Well, all i can say is just "Congratulation and great years ahead with your love ones".

P/S: She is not pregnant and she is 18 this year.

Why is everyone getting married in 2008??
1. My cousin sister - Lai Kuan
2. My ex-colleague - Syaridah
3. My colleague - Danny
4. My manager - Sarina
5. My ex-student - Xxx
6. My friend - Yu Yen (Soon to be :))
7. Myself - 2015

Have been busy

Yes, I have been busy with work and studies.

Been religiously studying after work for at least 1.5 hours. Not much I know but at least am doing it.

Oh gosh exam in 3 weeks time and Alec keep assuring me, still got 3 weeks la! -_-!! Cant blame him, he studied like 3 days before the finals.

I still have 48 questions to practise and 100 more pages to read.

And an audit file due Thursday morning...

iba iba andele!

Can I have this dance?

Can I Have This Dance Lyrics

Take my hand, take a breath
Pull me close and take one step
Keep your eyes locked on mine,
And let the music be your guide.

[Troy, Gabriella]
Won't you promise me (now won't you promise me, that you'll never forget)
We'll keep dancing (to keep dancing) wherever we go next

It's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you
It's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do
And with every step together, we just keep on getting better
So can I have this dance (can I have this dance)
Can I have this dance

Take my hand, I'll take the lead
And every turn will be safe with me
Don't be afraid, afraid to fall
You know I'll catch you through it all

[Troy, Gabriella]
And you can't keep us apart (even a thousand miles, can't keep us apart)
'Cause my heart is (cause my heart is) wherever you are

It's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you
It's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do
And with every step together, we just keep on getting better
So can I have this dance (can I have this dance)
Can I have this dance

[Gabriella And Troy]
Oh no mountains too high enough, oceans too wide
'Cause together or not, our dance won't stop
Let it rain, let it pour
What we have is worth fighting for
You know I believe, that we were meant to be

It's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you (like you)
It's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do (way we do)
And with every step together, we just keep on getting better
So can I have this dance (can I have this dance)
Can I have this dance

Can I have this dance
Can I have this dance

Owww...... so sweet, too bad Alec cant dance...-_-!

I. Almost. Died.

Alec got his bike today, and he asked me to wait for him in Bishan.

I almost died cause I was so excited to meet him that I practically forgot my basic road crossing rule

"Look left, Look Right then left again",

instead, I just

"Look at Alec, Look at the Bike, Look at Alec again".

So as I was crossing the road ... suddenly i heard a loud honk behind me, as i turned around the car hit me, a little la, not painful, in fact I didnt really feel it. Macam tak kena jer.

I apologized profusely, thankfully the driver was okay with it.

So, there you go, my close encounter with death today...

My Bf

Do you have a bf who sacrifices an opportunity to further his career to greater heights with a lot perks & $$ offered when you just say "Don't leave me alone?"cause his new career will required intensive travelling and a long period away from each other.

Do you have a bf who nurse you to health when you are sick for 3 weeks, preparing meals, soup and medicine for you at 3 o'clock in the morning, not for a day or two but for 3 freaking weeks. At the same time, had to endure your annoying cough that last for 2 minutes at any point of time when he is in a deep deep slumber.

Do you have a bf who purposely travelled all the way from Serangoon to Raffles Place to get you this wonderful bonquet of chocolates then travelled back to Bishan just to surprise you.

Do you have a bf who has just sent you home from KL to Kajang in the afternoon, then surprises you again by knocking at your door at night (travelling from Kepong to Kajang) cause you said you were hungry and wanted to eat supper but lazy wanna drive out to eat. Not once or twice but a number of times, now I dare not Dare him to come down to Kajang anymore, cause he makes good of his promises.

Do you have a bf who forgo his love for durian cause you cant stand the smell?

Do you have a bf who asked his mum not to cook pork or chicken drumstick/wings cause you only eat chicken breast meat?

Do you have a bf who puts you first, ahead of everything else and by a ring of a bell, he comes right to you to attend your whatever nonsense.

Do you have such a bf?

I do. :)

A Proposal

Friday 31st of October 2008 started out an extremely tense n stressful day, as it was the day of my final CPA exam after 2.5 trying years. Jim had his own stresses as well.

That very afternoon at 12pm when i was on my way out for the exam, Jim msged me and said "dear, can you take a cab to the botanical gardens after your exam. There's a flower festival there and its supposedly very nice".

Me, being a rather suspicious creature, started getting suspicious. So i replied him to say "Hmm i'm getting suspicious." Then he replied and said "Since its ur last exam, i wana make u feel relieved and relaxed. And since u complain i hardly take u out (which is true hehe) and there's a flower show, thought we can check it out".

So i didn't think much of it. And anyway, i was busy thinking abt my immediate exam.

So after the exam, i took a cab and called him to ask where he was. He said he was already there, saving seats for the flower show. So i got there and called him. He said "i can't get up frm my seat, otherwise we would lose our seats". So he asked me to get a map frm the reception and get to "palm valley".

Well, my directions aren't particularly good so i took pretty long to get anywhere near "palm valley". So Jim called me to ask where i was and eventually guided me to where he was waiting. At the bottom of the slope of Palm Valley.

When I found him, he said that he got someone to reserve our seats so he could find me. So we walked up the slope (it was a wide open field) and he kept talking on how it was really hot but ppl were saying that this flower show was really something. So as we walked n talked, we approached little white flowers on the grass which spelled my initials "YY".

I was shocked and said "errr....what is this??" "Where's the festival?" And he kinda just ignored what i said and we kept walking. As we kept walking, i saw more flowers in pink spelling the word "WILL".

Then further up, "YOU" ........... "MARRY".......... "ME".........."JJ" (His initials). The words were all made up of different coloured artifical roses. He later told me he bought 150 of them.

Then he asked me to turn ard, with my back facing him. He asked me to close me eyes so i did. then he handed me a bouquet of red and white roses. Then he asked me turn ard facing him. Then he took out a small ring box and he opened it and said "This is for you".

I was stunned that the box inside had the brand imprinted on it "King Fatt Jewellery" (Something like that, can't memba the name specifically). And the ring looked like a 1 dollar mood ring with white spots ard it. Rather ugly and a cheapo chinaman brand!! (Trust his humour hey) :)

Then finally, he took out the "real" ring and went down on one knee and proposed. So i said "yes" and he put the pretty diamond ring on my finger :)


Congratulation Yu Yen!!!!

Saturday, November 1, 2008


It is such a contrast between the East and the West.

The seventh Lunar month is such an inauspicious month that the Chinese avoid getting married, buying or moving house and staying out late during this particular period to fend off any unwanted spirits following them.

While the West parties all night long and even dresses in ghostly attire to freak each other out.

The decision to attend the Halloween party yesterday was an impromptu ones. EJ came down for the weekend and so we thought of going clubbing together. And not wanting to be under dressed, Alec and I hurried away to do our last minute Halloween costume shopping.

Actually to freak people out, all I need is just a baggy shirt, a messy hair and NOT PUT ANY MAKE UP ON, am sure I will win the scariest costume.

So here are my step by step to create my halloween look.

My trusted dolly eye contact lense. To make the big eye effect/

My make-upless face and messy hair, I know, Ugly.
one eye with the dolly eye contact lense and the other without. See the difference?

Now both eyes with the contact lense. Sparkling **

Next clip up the fringe.

Put on some toner to minimise the pores. I have super huge pores.. -_-

Then liquid eyeliner, I love missha eye liner. Easy to remove and put on.

Fake eyelashes, a must for typical chinese like me who has super short eyelashes.

Almost there.

Concealer, to conceal the ernormous pores and blemishes.

Almost there.

Unclip my fringe

Now put on my mask...


hahaha.. nola.. not going like this....

Put on my costume...





Princess Athena - The Greek Goddess of WISDOM... MUAHAHHAHAHA

Okay.. ready to partay!

Wait, I need a date.....

Mr Beast

But after I kissed him, he turns to this

Mentally Challenged

Today I saw a mentally challenged kid on the bus on my way home. He looks normal, no visible sign that he was mentally incapable and probably in his teens. The thing that draws the crowd's attention was that he keeps clapping and being overly excited once the bus moves. He was laughing and smiling from ears to ears as the bus speeds up.

Perhaps he was happy looking at moving vehicles, moving objects and people on the streets.

Perhaps he wasnt allowed to go out very often hence the excitement.

When it was his turn to alight, his elder brother dashed out just like that, the kid realising his brother had gotten down, frantically ran down the bus to catch up with his brother.

How could an elder brother just leave his incapable brother behind? I just don't get it.

If you cant take care of your brother, don't bring him out.

If you cant be a good leader, dont bloody lead.

I hate bad leaders, just like how I hate Msian 'Gahmen' Leaders.

Bubble Tea

I have just moved (again). After months of searching for the perfect home (or room), finally I have found one! Strategically located in Bishan, just a few stops away from Junction 8, plenty of buses to J8, wet market, convenient shops, salon, ATM machines, bakeries, food court and last but not least, my favorite BUBBLE TEA stall.

Bubble tea is still a craze here maybe because it is relatively affordable compared to Malaysia, a dollar to dollar comparison, $1.50 to RM3.00. When bubble tea was first introduced in Malaysia many years back, it was priced at around RM2.50 to RM3.00 for premium mixed. My sisters love bubble tea and usually after our tae-kwon-do training, I would treat them to bubble tea. That time I was just 14 years old, and I can’t afford to buy two cups of bubble tea so the three of us would share one cup of bubble tea.

Then after the little treat, they have to wait outside the Yamaha school while I attend my piano class. Michelle was just 11 years old, while Madeline was 7 years old. Sometimes, they do get restless but since both my parents were working, I have no choice but to care and bring them along for my activities. Then after my piano class, the three of us would walk to the bus stop to wait for bus and after alighting we have to walk about 1.5km under the scorching sun or heavy downpour. If my mum was to come back early, then I would bring them to the Kajang Library to wait for her.

Looking back, this is how my parent trained me to become the eldest daughter, a role model to my sisters. My parents gave me full authority over my sisters and my sisters were frightened of me than of my parents. Thankfully over the years, my tough love seems to produce results. Michelle developed from a slow learner to be one of the top girl in her college, Madeline, on the other hand, still lazy as usual but has developed great charisma and leadership skill by spearheading her cheerleader team, being a dance instructor for her dance school and the selected as the Youth representative for our Church.

Ah…. so much for a cup of bubble tea. Hahaha…

Pretty Surprises

Few days back Alec and I had a slight misunderstanding, so I gave him the silence treatment to torture him. Everyone knows that I can’t shut up even for a while, so Alec realized that I won’t give in despite apologized profusely finally resort to sending flowers to me.

Oh, not flowers per se, but this:



And I forced him to do squats in public.

(I’m sorreee)

Now, how can I not forgive him?

Just got a few feedbacks from my colleague and friends.

1. You look different these couple of weeks
Yes, cause I just rebonded my hair and added a few dress to my collection.

2. Your friendster/facebook/msn picture damn hiau! (Slutty).
Hahaha, having that nerdy look for the past 22 years, I think it is time to shed that nerdiness in me.

3. Are like changing your career path to become a model.
I wish!!!!! If I have the look, the height and the confidence, I wont be a Corporate slave by now. Those potraits are just for safekeeping, plus I got it for free. You know Melissa cant reject free stuff.

Btw, Alec has been requesting me to audition for some freelance modelling job,

I think Alec needs to have his eyes checked.

4. When are you resigning from Audit?
Not yet my dear. I love audit, having to profess my love for audit don’t make me a technically sound auditor. I am still learning.

5. Hardly see you on MSN nowadays, busy?
Yeah quite busy, left my laptop in office most of the nights.

Any more feedbacks?

I'm coming home!

Yesh people,

I am coming home on 25 October.

Please make your reservation to meet me asap as the slots are filling up real quickly.



I will be around Damansara on 25 Oct and Kajang on 26 Oct.

Don't say I didnt tell you guys in advance!

Reservation is on a first come first basis.

I miss Mama's cooking... I want to eat Mean Fan Cha Guo. I want to pinch Snowy's cheek. I want to nag at Daddy and listen silly jokes from my sisters. I want to buat bising at home.

I miss the bisingness back at home minus the barking of Snowy n Lucky.

I miss Kajang Town.

Why is my nick name Chess Gal?

I get this all the time, from forums to chat rooms and to new friends that I meet.

Why is my nick name and email is named as such. Truth is, well, you could have easily guessed it. I was a Chess fan when I was younger or maybe not too young, 14 years old?.

My bunch of classmates were Chess addicts, Jui Kenn, Nazmi & Paul were my then Si-Fus. They would bring along chess sets to play during recess or just at any point in time when teachers are called for 'Mesyuarat' or just MIA.

The three of them trained me on the fundamentals of Chess AND that's all, honestly! Especially Jui Kenn who is sooo selfish to share his strategies with me and refused to teach me despite I offered to be his GF!!! Hahahah.. then I bought a few Chess books to learn on my own. Those books are not cheap, RM60 for one, the cheapest that I've found.

I guess, the books served me pretty well. I won my very first individual tournament on my very first attempt. My team mates and the three sifus who also won their respective individual event were dumb-folded. Melissa??? Noone even know who I was that year. I was a newbie in this arena.

In the first game, I was paired to play against a Convent Kajang girl, her name was Cindy Foo. Convent Kajang team was one of the favourites, and Cindy was the prior year top three girls. My team mates were pretty new and one by one they were slaughtered by the Convent girls. I was the only one left battling on the first table (First table is like the best player table). Seeing my team mates being beaten senselessly, being the Captain, I cannot let them down. I played my very best and checkmated her in a damn stylo manner. Her King was forced to the corner of the board and my double rook checkmated her defenseless King.

I performed really well that year, won 4 games, drew one and lost my final game to the champion. Was also selected to play at the State level, trained with Siti Zulaikha (The National Women Masters in Msia) and met a lot of great players.

But guessed I ran out of luck in the following years. I still win medals in each tournament nevertheless but it was team event, no longer individual. (Cause I trained my teammates ;P). Winning as a team was better, no one gets left behind but sadly, I no longer play at the State level.

Ah... those were the days. Oh yeah, I played for my college too and won twice at the IMU-MAPCU Chess Tournament. That tournament not only was my last in college (few days before graduation) but was also the medal that gave me the edge to be choosen as the Valedictorian, apart from my ahem CGPA 4.0. (Alec is so going to kill me for keeping bragging on my CGPA).

Oh yeah my nick name. Since my first tournament, I signed off as Chess Lissa on my scoresheet. Scoresheet is piece of paper where we note down our move and once the game is over, both players sign off, keep the carbon copy and pass the originals to the Arbitor. The copy is for players to analyse where they went wrong or right.

My email address was that time until it got spammed with junk mails so bad that I decided to open a new email account. So I name is Chess_Gal.

Singapore Motorshow

Just back from the Singapore Motorshow.

And guess what, I was in one of the stuntman's car for a spin, not one but several spins!!

Ohmygawh,... such an adrenaline rush! The moment the driver starts drifting, or sort of drifting, where he speed up then jammed brake... my heart almost fell out..

I have never been in a sports car before, the sportiest car was my mum's V6 Perdana and my %$#$!!@ ex-bf's Audi. But they have never drove like this before (obviously).



I have recorded a few video of the stunts performed, will upload it later cause my lappie just got reformatted and I dun have the programme to run the videos now.


There were obviously a lot of pretty chicks around and Alec cant help but keep snapping pictures of the 'cun' (pretty in malay) babes away, leaving his dear companion aside despite dressing like a peacock.


Then there was a simulation cycling competition, Alec being a bicycle freak when he was younger decided to give it a try, curiousity gets the better of me, so, I also signed up for the competition despite am wearing a super tiny micro mini skirt.

AT the end, Alec won the men cycling event for 1.5km in 2 mins 33 seconds, whereas I won the ladies event for 1.5km in 3 mins 25 seconds. Not too bad for newbies like me who doesnt even know how does the bicycle gears work.

Sadly the prize won was only t-shirts, caps and bottles, but the pride of being crowned the champion... Priceless.. hahahha...

Will upload more pictures later... need to get some beauty sleep now...
