Wish me luck Guys...

1. What is the name of Taylor's 3rd album
a) speak now

2. 

3. I have become a fan simply because Miss Taylor Swift's songs REPRESENT!
 Who? 
Thousands of teenagers; the tubby, thin, tall, tiny, timid, talkative, tom boys, and tinkerbells all around the world. 
Every song is a story we know so well because it has happened sometime in our lives.
 Whether it is drooling over a boy in class, or discovering a first crush, 
I think that the fact that it comes from within her is so "jinx-you-owe-me a-soda" because the rest of us were feeling the exact same thing!

Liza The Dragon Slayer

I love it when I remember my dream and it is whole and complete with a proper ending as nonsensical as it may be.

I hate it when something or someone wakes me up when I WANT to know the ending. We all know that going back to sleep will NEVER finish that dream. It's gone...

I also hate bad dreams. When I was younger I used to dream about shark attacks and lions mauling me.




I just had a dream and I'd like to share it with you.


Up until last night, my dreams have been pretty grounded, nothing out of the ordinary, mostly about people I interacted with recently...(sort of like how facebook chooses your top friends)  lol

But this time, it was Epic.

I slayed a dragon. Full stop. Epic. Full stop. My brother died. Full stop.

not this little guy. that would be like killing a cicak.



it was like this! i was wearing that armor also!

 In my dream, Marc( my younger brother) and I were looking for swords, shields, helmets and armor for our battle with the dragon.

Marc suddenly wanted to be the one to kill it. 

I felt sad at the same time relieved that someone else was willing to do it, because I was terrified. 

MaRc went out first but his shield was made out of paper. The dragon killed him almost immediately. 

We battled in the dry river bed of the White River in Italy. (don't know if this river exists)

I've never had a more thrilling, adrenaline pumped dream EVERR!!!


What Does it Mean

This morning i googled dreams about dragon slaying and found this

Symbolism in Dreams


The Jung/Freud Approach

Dragon
(1) Is the dragon guarding a treasure, or a cave which might contain treasure? If so, the cave probably represents your unconscious, the treasure represents yourself, the dragon that stands between you and your true self represents the fearsomeness of the unconscious, for one who is still afraid of what may be lurking there. This is a repression of the unconscious contents

(2) For Jung, the first stage of the individuation process is the conscious ego's heroic struggle {the hero/heroine journey of mythology} to lift itself out of the orginal all-encompassing unconsciousness and to establish control of unconscious forces. This finds symbolic representation in the legendary dragon-slayer, St George (St George = the ego; the dragon = the unconscious).

(3) The dragon may represent the devouring aspect of (your relationship with) your mother. 'Slaying the dragon' may therefore mean putting an end to whatever in your attachment to your mother is detrimental to the process of finding your own psychic individuality. Once the individual has achieved liberation from the 'dragon', the feminine side of the man's psyche and the masculine side of the woman's psyche will no longer appear in threatening form, but as an indispensable companion and guide in further stages of self-development.




Interesting huh...

I think people need to pay attention to their dreams sometimes, but reading interpretations like the above shouldn't be taken too seriously.

The dragon could mean anything in the world, whether my mother, or my brains, or my soul...it just sounds better coming from the mouth of Jung or Freud.

The Tiada Taxi Tale

My Journey back to Klang



okay I simply wanted to alliterate the title, so ignore the weirdness. 

Hey folks I'm back in Klang ( not to sound celebrity-like or anything) haha. 

Right before I bore you to tears with the Taxi tale, A very HAppy CHINesE nEw YEaR to all my Chinese mates!! in Kedah and in Klang!...and all over the world! I thank you for this holiday the rest of us are enjoying!

Anyway, the man whom I called to take me to the bus terminal did NOT arrive. fifteen minutes to 10.45(boarding time) and I had no transport. 

I called everyone I knew, and for some reason they all were not available. adoiiii!!

So I started walking! with my travel bag and backpack 

at first I was just sad and wondered why all this had to happen today..

After tripping over my own bag twice, I kicked it and Then I started getting annoyed at everything led to this..




















After a while, I became progressively hateful, on the verge of madness I think... I felt like throwing my bags in the drain! I cruelly picked on random things and cursed them 


And at this point I started to resemble the picture at the top of this post. 

and then suddenly

Zooming up beside me, two juniors from IPDA asked 
"kak nak g mana?"

then I told them 

and they said 
"jom"

And I arrived on time for the bus, thanks to my new HEROES eh... Firstly thank God (knew he wouldn't just desert me)

By the way, the moral value here is Kepercayaan Kepada Tuhan... hehe

anyway those boys name's were Naqiuddin, and Syami...

Thank you thank you thank you. I said thank you! kind people can be found everywhere! they happened to be driving back to perlis and saw miserable me.

have arrived safely in Klang. 

I think the visuals accurately depict my thoughts, actions and expressions...

signing off for now..

Don't stop by. (you've been warned)

Hello again.
Laura and I
Firstly I would like to say that today something embarrassing happened to me, but then Lizamaria(me) is sooo used to embarrassing mishaps in her life, that this may be considered NOTHING at all. But when I told my neighbour, she nearly died. I kid you not. I bet my sisters would squeal if they found out!


 

*okay someone just walked into the room with the most dreamy perfume!* give me a moment to inhale deeply. haih....reminds me of my standard 3 days. hmmmm....hahhhhh...*

okayyy, where was I? 

right. 

Once upon a time, my family was about to go to a dinner, and I thought the blouse I had on looked good. It was yellow and had stripes. 

Anyway, since my sisters didn't give a sh**,  I asked my 18 year old BROTHER what he thought. 

                                                                              
 Im sure he didn't give a sh** either but I asked in my usual annoying way. Of course I wanted him to agree.


ME: Marc nice right this blouse?
MARC: errr...okay la
ME: YEAH its so bright! damn nice right!?!? (I'll only talk like this in front of my family)
MARC: emmm
ME: what!??! what are you saying. Look at it lah.LOOKK!!! *twirls*
MARC: can see-through lah!


haaaa ambik kau! so then I shut up la...lol...and anyway, Marc is honest like that.


Anyway, the brat is in NS now and he went in like an ikan bilis so hopefully he'll come back like boom boom poww!!

crosses fingers!

okay hang on, I'm almost done...oohhh my grammar essay about myself...Madam thinks it's too conversational. so major weakness on style there. Maybe its because of all this blogging! haha

too lazy to backspace. dont read that^^ up there...waste of space. Lalalala...

Ooh today I spoke to Syafwan Omar's girlfriend! 

I went jogging. Anyone reading this is welcome to join everyday at 6pm! hope to see you there!

okay, you can go away now. I have nothing else to say. thanks for staying this long with me. It means a lot. 

to reward your patience, heres a tiny game

a few faces that never change!

Replay Replay Replay

You have no idea how embarrassed I am to admit this, but the Britney craze has hit me again.

1. Hit me Baby One more Time

2. Oops I did it Again

3. Stronger

4. Born to make you happy

5. Overprotected

6. Bombastic Love

its so hard to find a decent picture of this woman


and they're on friggin REPLAY!! as in I don't listen to ANYTHING else now. everything else makes me annoyed. haha.

But what is it about these phases, where you just dig up your teen music and listen to them allllll dayyyy longgg???....I'm sure theres a psychological explanation to all of this. I'll figure mine out.



Anyway, I'm pretty nervous about or reading assignment, which I haven't started yet. Group work progress ZERO! 
and i absolutely hate to be the nagger, the one who bugs and annoys everyones life about the group work so hopefully we start soon. =D=D

SEMANGAT!!!

A funny story to end this.

Tonight's meeting was cancelled because zainy had to play futsal at night. "Zainy" and "futsal" shouldn't be in the same sentence in the first place! 

So to make him a bit guilty, I said emily and I had ridden a motorcycle to church and were now risking a traffic accident death to reach in time for the meeting. But Zainy didn't believe me, so I started blowing in the phone to make wind sounds. (we were actually in the van and zainy heard the karaoke music playing) so cheh that lie flopped. 
but he was confused at first! muahahha..

My Favourite Antidepressant.

 I was pondering about the goodness of laughing, and came up with all sorts of uncomfortable situations where a laugh is secretly hiding. Drag the mofo out!

"Laugh when you are laughed at!"
of course if one is having period cramps the exact moment a joker gets in your face, one is perfectly entitled to any violently explicit grunts or gestures. But on a period-free day (girls) bring out the smiles and it'll set the mood right for the whole day. I kid you not.

 Yesterday morning...

Arifuddin: Wah Liza  cantiknya.....

Liza: hehe Thank youuuu *sing song voice*

Arifuddin : Cantiknya beggg...nyehahahhahahhakehehkhekhekeh

and I burst out laughing as well, because (damnit!) I didn't see that one coming...and little Arifuddin thought he was so funny, that I couldn't help but laugh.


thats Arifuddin and I


"When someone talks about you behind your back, 
smile knowing they took time out of their pathetic lives to think about you"

this quote makes me LOL because the happy effect is instantaneous!

In 2008, we attended Camp Disaster from church. 
It was cut short because the priest got so angry because my parents complained about the discipline.
In one day, my two friends and I became PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER 1
Because of us, camp had been cut short, and everyone was sent home.

Anyway, 
the next week as we walked into class,
I heard a chorus of
  "BOOOOOOO"
"BOOOOO"
"STUPID"
"BLOODY PRINCESSES"

Pat was got really angry and overturned a chair. 
The whole class was tense.
But at that moment I just burst out laughing. 
and couldn't stop. 

In my  head I was thinking, 
"We affected their lives so much??? people actually booo their classmates??

(For the record, i hadn't done anything wrong at camp, and everybody is on talking terms now. Forgiven and forgotten)






" Smile. It irritates those who wish to destroy you."


Another amazing quote.

I have a good friend by the name of Syafwan Omar, whos main aim in life is to see if I'll get angry.
I am NOT joking.
I found out one day, when he succeeded in making me yell..

Syafwan: Yessss! akhirnya saya berjaya buat liza marah!!

and I burst out laughing because wow yes people like that do exist!

Not once have I forgotten to smile.
 Syafwan is a really good guy and beneath all those lame jokes there is a good heart.
syafwan and I 

"We are all inventors.
 Create one new thing to laugh about everyday"


Here I would like to introduce my funny buddies

Funny buddies are the two or three people whom you cooperate closely with to produce some of the best humour of the day.

My original funny buddies are back in Klang and India respectively and we make magic. Enough said
Pat, and Jes
And in Kedah, my funny team is made up of two girls called
Emily and Azie. They make class a bit more bearable. Azie is no longer in the same class but when the three of us do get together, there is LAUGHTER!

Me, azie, emily



"Every problem has a silver lining. Every problem. Find it and smile."


I admit, sometimes I do struggle with this myself. However I do believe in it 100%.

But one instance I do remember well, is when our LDV assignment was due.
It was group work.
Our lecturer was Pn. Ranjani Naidu whom I  love like But YOU DO NOT want to MESS WITH her

We finished it 20 minutes past the deadline.

And I remember thinking "the shit has definitely hit the fan"
"things can't get any worse!"

and we ran to the staffroom puffing, panting and LAUGHING all the way

I'd rather not repeat what took place after that,
but Pn. Ranjani doesn't hate us now
we WILL NEVER try THAT AGAIN!!


Okay people, thats all from me.
Go find something to laugh about

HAHAHA

Linguistics makes me sweat!

Okay  Mr. sapir-and his ex student whorf wrote about how they thought that our culture determines our language, and that our language determines our thoughts and perceptions of the universe and reality. 

but how!??!

I don't understand or see how this is possible. What does it meannnn?????? ( brain freeze)



Hey reader, a very good sunday morning to you too!

I have not been to church this week, because the aunty who normally sends me is in Penang and I didn't really put in much effort to find alternative transport. In times like this, I truly believe God is everywhere. =D =D (mummy if you read this, I prayed in my room)


To a friend who has started smoking again
I guess I'm not surprised!
haha=)

Guilty of neglect!


 I am guilty of neglecting Laura Ann. My little (form 4) sister. She entered the debate competition just like I did when I was her age, and just like in my case, my mother said she shouldn’t get involved in all this. But I think it’s very good for her to get exposed to debating because it boosts confidence, builds character and ultimately makes you a better and more objective thinker. So go Laura!


When I was debating, I had no elder sister to look to for help therefore we planned everything by ourselves. Teammates were none other than Jacinta Lopez and Elizabeth Hendroff. haha(good times).

But in little Laura’s eyes, chechi is there! Thank goodness! (chechi is elder sister in Malayalam)

So she rang me up and I asked her to get her team mates together to discuss their points and roles (for heaven sakes). I told her the role as 1st speaker. I had an idea of what she could say, but I didn’t want to tell her exactly how to say it because I wanted her to do some work as well.   

And at 11pm, we were discussing her point (debate the next day). Then I mentioned that she would have to take the reply speech. And she was like WHATTT IS THAATT???? She told me to stay awake and she would call later after writing out her point.

But I slept

And the next day I saw two heartbreaking messages “chechi you sleeping?’
And “chechi! how to do reply speech?!”
She can’t call me because Maxis is stooopid.
Sorry Laura. Hopefully, there won’t be reply speeches.

*********************
Living with a mirror the size of a tennis ball

Yes, the main reflective surface in my room is my compact mirror, which comes with powder.
Thinking about it now, its damn pathetic right? 

BUT 
 I hate getting stuff like mirrors because there won’t be a permanent place that it can be. Every time I use it, I'll have to put it away. So, no. My roommate hung hers and whenever she needs to look at it, the mirror will be swinging in the wind and annoying the crap out of anyone. 

Also, 
A compact mirror forces you to look at every detail closely, lol, because only one part of your face can be seen at any one time. HAHA

Okay where the hell am I going with this post?
~change of direction~

My cat caught a rat! Go Kachinggg
And we’re shifting house soon! So far, we’ve got a new dining table set. I’ll post up pictures of the new place when I get some. =D

My Muddled Puddle

Thursday, 13th January 2011


I came to class in a good mood!


I sat down for FIVE minutes and something happened that just switched off my happy. I'd rather not explain here in case feelings get hurt. Last thing I need. =S


But I find that in very delicate situations such as the one this morning, you have to refrain from pointing out rudeness for example or absolute insensitivity or risk blowing something out of proportion. 


There is not only ONE way to deal with everybody. That I definitely have learnt. 


My friend from home, said she rarely saw me stressed out if anything happened eg. "forgot to do homework/bring book" 


My other friend said I could be really insensitive and sarcastic at times.


Anyway in the spirit of Self discovery, 
I just took some universal personality test and scored high for stability- which means I'm relaxed, calm, secure and optimistic


and my overall comments are:


secretive, reclusive, messy, disorganized, introverted, unassertive, rarely worries, dislikes large parties, does not like to fit in, does not need to control others, solitary, ambivalent about chaos, tough, leisurely, does not respect authority, not aggressive, observer, abstract, impractical, dislikes leadership, daydreamer, bizarre, does not make friends easily, not a perfectionist, suspicious, rarely irritated, strong physical instincts, unsympathetic at times, risk taker, submissive, weird, sarcastic, strange


And many of them I do admit to be true! thats why I enlarged them.




When someone annoys me, I think of my family, God and a Transnational bus!


Oh well, its the weekend, I've got two new movies (thanks baqry) and I'm leaving Sunday to sort itself out. =D
