Happy-Stop Turned One!!!

"Happy-Stop", a blog that had made greetings/ wishes to everyone. Greetings/ wishes from encouragement to farewell, from farewell to events, from events to birthday. Now it's time to make a greeting for the blog itself! =D

Happy-Stop is turning ONE year old today on the 8th June 2009! From ground zero entry to 73entries posted online including these one. At first, I'm still there doubting whether I can last these long, what can I bring to others and etc. "As long as there is efforts contributed, there is always outcome" that after a year, I'm here still blogging and it'd turned ONE years old! Time really flies~

Thanks to Food-Hungry.com that played a role in bringing me into blogging. Hahaha! And the virus is spreading. From food-hungry to happy-stop then to josh's cafe. =D

Andy [He drives her around for food hunting]

Jestina [She does the blogging] "Here we are to follow their path and reveal their secret wonderland" :) Andy & Jestina, the owner of food-hungry.com

What's like after blogging for a year? What's the feeling?

Ermm... At first, it's HOT that I wrote llloooonnnnngggggg entry that filled with tons of words! Someone complained that ...

it's very TIRING to read my blog because it would take such a long times & efforts to read finish one entry. Hehe!

Before we're moving any further. Let's meet the one that first said that it's very TIRING to read my blog. =D

HO WEE! Hahaha!
Ho Wee: "Geng, chin chuan ahh!!!" [hockien]

I myself do find it tiring in writing such a long post. We're gotta be "Cepat, Tepat & Selamat" Hahaha. In order to be cepat, tepat dan selamat, we need to be creative that a lot of thinking need to be done.

There are times that we need to squeeze out the brain juice to post one nice entry. Aaahhh~ Going crazy! hehe/ :p

Overall...

Blogging is FUN!!! Yiippppeeee~ Hahahaha! :)

Thanks for these little machine here that you guys got it for me...

It's celebrating its ONE year old too. Hahaha! With that, I can capture all the moments/ experiences, peoples that come along into my life and share it all via internet. That's why I quoted the header as "Living Moments By Happy-Stop". [It's the stop where smiles gather] :)

There is always gain & lose in life. Either we gain these then we lose that! Within these 1year since the day I started blogging. There is lost & gain in me!

I'd flunk my academic grades because I didn't put much efforts in trying. Ended up working but gained experiences that we all need when it comes to society. And finally gave myself a chance again that I applied to go study again. I'd lost you, but I gained supports & encouragements from what we called it "friendship". I'm a big spender when it comes to foods & drinks, but in return what I gained is all these happy moments I spent it with you all. The moments that money & time can't buy because there aren't any turning back time. Hehe. And of course...

I'd gained FATS too! Hehehe. Ohh God!!! Save me Buddha!!! hahaha~

Let's us have a flashback on what we all had in happy-stop. Let's see how much passengers & smiles had happy-stop accumulates here! Little by little does the work... A day a smile, add it all up in a year time. It'll be 365 smileS! =)

First of all, I'm starting it with...

my families & relatives [one big family I got here] because they are the one that watched me grow from one puny baby into one MONSTROUS hunk!!! Hahaha... =P

Arrrgghhh!!! You wouldn't like me when I'm Hungry!!! Hehehe.

You all had done one great job in taking care of all your nieces & nephews "anak buah" escpecially during the Chinese New Year that we all kids love! HAHAHAHA~ [money face!!]

It's a nice thing that we're able to spend time together during any occasions or events. It's always a huge pile-up whenever we have gathering. Imagine all the noises created...

Thanks for the foods that prepared all these time since I'm small. I enjoy eating all the foods cook by you all that each of you have your own signboard dishes!

From left to right! [5th auntie that makes laksa, 3rd auntie that makes dumplings & kuih, 4th auntie that makes kuih too & nasi lemak, 1st auntie that makes Char Kueh & Egg-Biscuit, my mum drives us to my aunties' house and eat their foods! Hahaha! there is 2nd auntie in Singapore & 7th auntie in Lawas.

That's what we all get from the older generations in our families. [Love, Care, Guidance]

Jia Yi [one of my niece] who still study & Ah Qi [My cousin] who is working as accountant! Kacchhiinggg! $_$

My nephews & nieces with their auntie.

Nana, one straight-foward girl that comes with nice personality too. The cousin that collects the whole albums of Jay!

Kojack & his little brother [Kok Hau] The cousin that drove me out when I'm still small. Brings me go watch movies, hanging out with his friends, watching football games & etc. The cousin who is a big fan of Louis Koo & have many collections of ZeroX's spectacles. [Brand created & design by Louis Koo]

Kent Loh, The cousin that makes good marinate in bbq foods and he's the chef around us when it comes to barbecue. Working as draftsman since the day he finished his study.

Ah Liang, my little brother! A stubborn one I want to say. After bumping each other in one restaurant, his friends find that it's hard to believe we both are siblings! =.=!! hehehe. Totally an opposites of ME. Let's make few comparisons.

Me: Tall as in 180cm. Him: Taller than me a few more cm.
Me: Fat Him: Thin but he's the one that got the nickname "Pui" Well, only I called him that. =D
Me: Got my skills rusty in basketball Him: Getting better each day.
Him: people said that he's handsome Me: Errmm, haven't got the compliment yet. Haha. But the word "CUTE" always mention in me instead of "Handsome" =.=!! [kns]

Other than my families, I get to know my friend's families too that...

I was invited to celebrate for the celebration in their gatherings! Above is Andy's families & relatives. Been to his house for barbecue, steamboats, open house & birthday's party too.

Relatives. Hehehe. Above is Jestina's 21st birthday party.

Eng Lun & his family members.

I feel lucky & bless that until now I'm still able to keep in touch with the friends that I made since I'm small. Some had known each other for more than 10years, some are more than 5years and etc. To make friends is easy but to maintain a strong & healthy relation between friends is hard because misunderstanding is always there to make disturb. To know someone for such a long time, it's really something and "appreciate" is what we need to do to hold these bond.

Other than capturing the moments with family members, relatives & friends. I myself had approached the strangers a few times and requested to take pictures with them. I'm lucky that no one had ever turned me down. Hehehe. Biasalah... Apa nak di kata?!?! =P

Thanks to one of my friend's school project. I get the chance to stand out of myself and approached the public to take pictures with them. It's one nice experiences that I get to understand bits about them, get to know their cultures and all those. No matter how good have we learnt about the theory, when there is no any practical action taken. We can't hardly know the things that we are trying to learn/ understand.

That's Jes on the left & forgot your name on the right. Hehehe. That's the first attempt that I tried and a successful one. Until now, whenever I go to the mall and have some window shopping. I still can see you~ Memang ada jodoh lah. Hahaha.

The shufflers. It's been so long that I didnt stay up late in Gadong that I hardly see you all anymore. Any thing that you do, best of all and try your best in studies!

The kids that stay up late night. The energy I have now can't compare with you all. Whenever I stay up late in one place, I'll sleep at that place that I chill which I ever slept at De Royalle Cafe, Coffee Bean B.S.B & Sampoerna Gadong.

And you, don't worry. You wouldn't appear in newspaper. Hahaha. But you had appeared in Happy-Stop TWICE. That's my friend's little brother, the one that stood just beside me. Hehehe. Answered me that will the picture taken appear on newspaper when I requested a picture with him...
