After class, we went out the building and *Eek* the sky was dark! It was only 5.30pm and it is dark! Scary! We walked real fast back to our halls as it was chilly. I showered and went to prepare my dinner as I was already feeling hungry. I baked the chicken with quite an amount of butter (I didn't get oil =p) and more honey =) It was a tough job trying to bake it as the butter heats up and the hot 'oil' flies when I move the chicken around! LOL! I ended up smelling like food when I'm done with cooking it! I boiled rice to go with it and also made long beans (they call it fine beans) and onion omelet.

Sunday morning we had to turn back an hour for daylight saving. It was so weird having the chance to experience 1am twice on that day! LOL! So I basically watched finish the whole season of Forensic Heroes (No thanks to Nick for telling me!!!). It is crazy! I finished it in two and a half days! I think I'm going mad! LOL! Anyway, just to remind you guys in Malaysia it is now 8 hours difference between Malaysia and London.
The extra creamy baked chicken I made came in handy! I ate it with a Cornish pie for lunch today and it reminds me of Dome's Gourmet pie (and Secret recipe's) but of course there is a difference =p Then I finished the last portion with some ham and bacon ravioli. The creamy sauce is just the match! Not forgetting the creaminess of some cheddar slices I added =p
Halloween is on Wednesday. Wonder to what extreme will the craziness go...

I thought it would be more interesting to put in cheese and so...*flap* there is the cheese =) It melted and made my dinner more creamy =)

The Building and Car park (empty because it is late evening)
I love this picture =) By the way, this is the 'happening field' where people have their picnics, sing and shout, throw their 'used' stuffs and exposing themselves! The room with three windows on the ground floor is the launderette.
My flat corridor.

Anyway, these past few days I was busy doing something...something special for my dear friends back home...two of them =) Guys if you're reading this and you know what I mean, just act surprise =p Anyway, yesterday I went mad. I watched Prison Break till 4am in the morning!!! LOL! It is addictive! Considering we DON'T have access to a TV, http://www.watchtvsitcoms.com/ is our friend =p
This morning I was awakened by Ching at 12pm but I wasn't mad because she brought me something nice. HAHA! Thanks Ching. Anyway, I'm going out again to explore a little bit more about this area and also to try looking for jobs =)

Anyway, I went for a walk after class today. First I walked to PC World to find out about the pricing of the USB cable for the printer. The cheapest was 14.99 pounds!!! Crazy! Then I walked to Argos, where I bought my printer and is just next door to PC World. The cheapest was 2.94 pounds! Sadly, I walked out empty handed as there was no more stock! Feeling the urge to go back with something, I decided to walk to Morrisons. It is another supermarket but of higher class compared to Tesco. I walked around like a 'Si Lai' looking for deals on food and value buys. Then I reached the cheese section!!! Heaven! LOL! I have always wanted to get a block of cheddar cheese and some crackers for my supper/tea-time meals but never got the chance to. After an hour of circling the cheese counter, I finally decided to take the Canadian Cheddar as it was a value buy (1.10 pounds). Then I went to get Ritz crackers...best of all is that it is only 84 pence a box AND buy one FREE one!!! Coolness! Then I went to Tesco to get a box of tea bags...I bought the Tesco brand tea bags, 80 bags for 32 pence. The cheapest you can get really! Come to think about it, it is kinda crazy that I went to so many places in 2 hours! Oh well, it has been quite some time since my last excersice...it is really fun walking in the breeze at my own pace and catching very cool cars passing by =p
Anyway, after finishing this block of cheese which is very soon =p I will attempt to try the cheese with apricots and mango (i think), a sweet type of cheese! Can't remember what it is called. I tried it before in Australia courtesy of my Aunt Janet =p It is another heavenly delicacy!!! LOL! Feeling hungry...going to nibble on some cheese and crackers now~
*It is 6 degrees now...in autumn...hmmm...

That is Boon Choo...and her home =p
Chicken wings in black soy sauce!!!
Chinese style omelet =)
This is one of the craziest thing I did in my life! My flat mate, Subo was eating lunch with Kuan, one of our classmate, in the kitchen. I was there eating my porridge too. So they asked me if I ate 'Pate' before and I say no. I don't even know what is that! Then they say it is pork liver! I was like "urgh!". I don't even eat pork intestine, pork liver or any other parts of the pig other than the meat in 'Bak kut teh' back home! They say they don't eat pork liver too but this is nice! The enthusiasm coming from them convinced me. I decided to try it as we only live once =p Kuan spread some Pate on a small slice of toasted baguette and passed it to me. As I slowly land my teeth on half the slice of the French delicacy in my mouth, both Subo and Kuan was staring at me! Then I chew and swallowed! It wasn't that bad really =p I thought it would be horrible! I finished the other half slice and then I started to taste the 'pork's blood' (maybe it is in my mind)!!! I quickly shove a spoon of my porridge in my mouth! I was fine then...LOL! I am happy I tried it =p now I have another entree to put in my menu! LOL! It is kinda cheap really...a huge box that (I think) can last me three meals and only cost 98 pence excluding the cost of the baguette. Cool! LOL!

-busy opening the printer and trying to fix it to see if it works-
Ok...this is the weirdest thing ever! The printer doesn't include a USB cable! WTH?!??!!? Then how to connect to the laptop?!?!? They easily print on a paper...'Purchase a USB cable separately if it is not included'. RIGHT!!!! Thanks for telling me now! SWT!!! So I shall have a new quest tomorrow...looking for the damn cable! Wait a minute...it is Sunday tomorrow! Darn! I guess I shall leave it alone and if I can't find the cable or it is crazily expensive, I'm returning it!!! LOL! I wanted to upload a picture of the printer but my laptop can't read the camera's memory card. It is nice looking...Grey and white...classy!!!
Owh it is so quiet here...most of the students went missing...abducted by aliens?! LOL! In my flat, there is only two of us left!!! Creepy~

I got these two in another shop...both for 5pounds =)
It is simple but LONG! Malaysia ones are so short!
I bought a jeans...because both pair I brought with me is very loose...
This beauty is for 7pounds =)
The details on the back pockets...no idea what it is =p
After a tiring day, I need to make pasta for dinner...I have been eating this 5days in a row for dinner as the label on the bottle of pasta sauce says "Please consume within 3days after opening". I tried but I keep having extras =p Yes, two of the days I was having 'expired' sauce...but it tasted fine and I did not create any 'slushie' in the toilet =p
*PS: Mum, don't kill me...I am still within the budget =p and I need more clothes to keep warm!!! =p

I was all happy and glad to meet them and thinking about this Saturday. Then I went back to my room and shower. Then I decided to make dinner. In the kitchen was someone whom I thought was a kind soul. Sadly, I am not good at judging people yet. The first words shooting out from her was
Trying to get over the damn b*tch's accusation! Yes, loud trance!

Then the day went by pretty fast as I was packing my room, trying to keep myself busy. Then it was dinner time. The thought of having to prepare the food and borrowing Tony's pan kinda make my butt heavier. I got up to make dinner anyway. Coincidentally, Subi was also entering the kitchen to make her dinner. Our cooker (four burners) doesn't work so we had to share a mini cooker (two burners) which Jenevive brought from her house. We have been using that since we got here! Sad! Anyway, my meal was simple for tonight. I heated up a frozen pre-packed Cornish pie in the microwave oven which we all chipped in to get (I paid 4pounds for my share...yea it is kinda cheap =p ). It smells beautiful! Basically it is beef, carrots and onion stew topped with mashed potato and cheddar cheese! YUM! I have loads of raw Chinese cabbage so I cooked a little side order for myself. A Chinese dish....stir fry Chinese cabbage with carrots.
I ate while chatting with Subi and I think I am fitting in better than expected. I guess it is always the first time the home-sick part is the worst. She kind of told me a lot about her background and about Dubai...a country that has a lot of advantages and weird disadvantages. We had fun. Then when we were about to leave, Jenevive came in. We chatted in the kitchen for a while. Then I asked her "Are 40 denier tights suppose to see through your skin?" That question ended up to a 2hour conversation! LOL! She was friendly...she showed me her tights and we talked about fashion and make up and she let me in her room to see her make up collection! LOL! So she showed me her make up and yes she has loads of it! "I just like to put on make up", she says. She's a drama student by the way so it explains. I think we can click as we have some similarities in the things we like =) so yea...we'll see how it goes!
*PS: Tights are UK version of Malaysia's pantyhose but it is thicker and the material keeps you warm so you can wear skirt in this horrifying whether =p
