Yes,I have four eyes....

Pardon the weird title....Image Hosted by

And no,I have not sprouted an extra pair of eyes from my head...The four eyes I meant were my own two eyes and. . . . my spectacles. (Don't start throwing rotten eggs at me in your imagination please.... XP )

I was having a conversation with a friend a few days ago and somehow the subject of spectacles was raised up. I happened to comment that I needed to replenish my contact-lens stock;and this made my friend so,"What???!!!!You wear contacts????!!!!!" and after a short pause,she added," mean you wore spectacles????"

I'm pretty bemused that some people can actually forget I wore spectacles. And I'm speaking about people who have known me for at least a year (I switched to contacts a few months back...) We were talking about the increasing popularity of specs and how some people actually buy spectacle frames (without any 'power' in the lenses) and wear them as fashion accessories. What a change from the time when people who had to depend on the wire-rimmed glasses were teased as 'nerds','bookworm' or 'four-eyes'. Mind you,the funny nicknames never bothered me...I'm a self-admitted bookworm.(I LOVE BOOKS!!!!!)

So,for those of you who're guilty of forgetting the specty Joyce...and to satisfy the curious people who can't imagine me with glasses;here's a picture:-My polycarbonate,unbreakable,anti-crack,rust free,rimless specs which has been through a lot of free falls from my nose to the floor,accident drops and the occasional,"Where's my specs??Oh!!!I'm sitting on them."

And here's me with my contact lenses:-

Which do you prefer???

However high the craze is for 'fashionable' spectacles are now,there's such a thing as overdoing things.Like this:-

I borrowed Mei Theng's cool glasses..ahahaha...

But seriously though,if you're planning to frame your eyes,please choose a shape that matches and compliments your face. I've seen people who look like they're vie-ing for the World Record for 'heaviest-rimmed black specs on a human's nose","weirdest pattern on the spectacles rim"....(okay...check the sarcasm)

I'd go on and on with weird awards but I had better end this post since I'm typing this in college and before the 'lala' fellow with weird white rimmed spectacles (some fellow I don't know) who inspired the awards ceremony suspects something... (I'm so mean...)

On and ending note...My exams are around the expect a draught of updates here ya...
But do stay with me people...!!!

What happened????

It seems like I'm always filling up holes in my blog.

Sorry computer is unstable and. . . .complicated.I won't bore you with the details. Anyway,just a quick filler on what went on during my MIA period where I couldn't log in here to update.In no particular order:-

1. My parents attended a conference in Sabah and came back with a load of seafood. Seriously a LOT!!!!! As soon as they reached home,they started unloading ice boxes and iced packets into the kitchen and started trasferring the contents into the freezer. HUGE fishes,prawns(with sharp 'mouths' that poked my fingers..*OUCH!!!),scallops,anchovies,crab. . . .its going to be seafood days ahead for me!!!!

My mum cooked fish head curry with one of the fish heads they brought back.The SIZE of the fish...Look:-

Bigger than my head....

I'll show you more pictures next time if I manage to snap while my mum's cooking anymore of her awesome dishes with the sea creatures.

2. The last few months of the year seems to be the month of birthdays. I hope I remembered the birthdays which I am supposed to and if I forgot..I'm sorry!!!!Pictures of Vemal's birthday.He turned 18 on the 18th of November.We had lunch in Coco's Cafe:-

As usual,the food took ages to arrive since we went in such a big group.I played Stack-Up blocks (similiar to Uno Stacko) with the people at my end of the row.Somehow this game makes everyone really tension.Haha!!!:-

3. Sze Haw and Chrys came back and didn't notify in advance me as usual. (Surprise konon..=.=") We went EATING. Haha!!!! Chrys was playing hostess to two of her Sabahan friends;Tya and Arleen,and Sze Haw I joined her on a pasar malam excursion and dim sum breakfast.I didn't snap any pictures so can't show you the gluttoness we all unleashed during those times.

4. I have been eye-ing a particular keychain in Tesco which is so cute and I finally bought it!!!!Look:
Left= mine,right = Yin Yep's

Yes,I'm serious...KEYCHAINS = not real= not with the size of a 20cent coin...

They're mini and they look so realistic.Especially the red bean tong sui one.

5. My exams are coming and I am (as usual) not prepared and am so dead. *Sigh* I have 3 papers back to back from 1st to the 3rd of December. As I was saying to Stephanie the other day;ACCA is turning me into a nervy,exam freak.I'm trying to be optimistic,but I'm really scared.Oh ya,SPM is going on now...ALL THE BEST TO FORM FIVES!!!!!!!! and same goes to those who are facing exams too. We can do it!!!(I'm praying hard)

6. I suddenly had this urge to look through old photo albums containing my baby pictures. Nostalgia to the max!!!!Here's me when I was about 2 years old:-
I was a cute kid!!!!

On this pleasant note.I end my post.

My 19th

Yes...Joyce has turned 19.
I've hit my last year as a -teen.Gosh..all of the sudden I feel old.
My birthday fell on the 23rd of October (yea,long belated post...blame my server for not letting me sign in to update.) but my awesome friends threw me a surprise party on the night BEFORE my birthday.Ahahaha....
They had it in Benaz Cafe.
It used to be Ice Ice Baby (yes...I'm serious). The interior was maintained my the current owner so everything looks more or less the same.The current owners are relatives of Talvin and Satvin (brothers) here:-

Satvin (younger),me n Talvin (older and more jahat)
Only the menu is different.As the name suggests;Indian food is on the menu now.Gosh..I'm gonna miss the chocolate fondue that was on Ice Ice Baby's menu:-
(picture taken on Chrys' birthday last year)

The place had just opened when we arrived and we made it look very full indeed when we all sat down and picked up the menus.(THANKS YOU GUYS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CELEBRATE WITH ME!!!!)
I'm sorry I did not take any pictures of the food because I was too busy eating.Haha!!! I ordered Naan with Masala Chiaken,Lamb Curry and Nasi Briyani.The food was totally good.It burned my mouth and I had to gulp down some weird tasting orange juice to cool down.Thumbs up for the food but the drinks were weird.I ate til I was stuffed...Su Nyen ate til she couldn't sit up straight.AHAHA!!!! Okay,notice from the picture above that I sat at the head of the table. This is what I saw at the other end of the table:-
Ahahaha!!Scary man....
After everyone had eaten what they could,my birthday cake was taken out. They got me my favourite Oreo Cheesecake from Secret Recipe. Happiness....Image Hosted by ImageShack.usHere's a picture of me looking super happy about the cake (=.="):-
Joyce: The cake is mine.All mine.WAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
Okay,that caption was a joke. They went through the birthday cake ritual of singing 'Happy Birthday' and I was about to blow out the candles when DEAR Sasi and Talvin started chanting 'Joycie Joycie!!!' using the Chelsea chant and made other people turn around and stare.Football maniacs... Image Hosted by
Candles out;everyone started lining up waiting impatiently for me to slice the cake and distribute it out.See...:-

Bavanee(left): Mmm...cake...
Su Nyen(blue shirt):Faster lah Joyce..

QuingQuing:That BIG slice is mine...hohoho...
Talvin: Oi!!!Don't cut the line.Get back.Shoo!!!

Yin Yep:Joyce!!!!!FASTER cut the cake!!!Bavanee's pulling my hair to throw me out of the line!!!

Actually,what REALLY happened was I left the cake-cutting to my more capable friends and went around snapping pictures.I didn't want to mush up the nice cake.HAHA!!!
Pictures pictures pictures:-

Yin Yep (the organizer) and me.

Mei Theng was so tired of being photographed she couldn't keep her eyes open for this one:-
But she managed it in the end!!!:-

And her naughty older sister bunny-eared me in this photo:-(Su must set better example for Mei Theng!!!!tsk tsk... XP)

I tried Su Nyen's trick on the guys but they wouldn't stay still.Resulted in blur picture....:-
Haha!!!Me and Bavanee

Vinita and me...

The lighting in Benaz wasn't very ideal for pictures and I had to put most of the pictures through the photo editor to adjust...

Well,after the bill was settled, we exited Benaz.We were all so full and didn't want to go home yet so we decided to walk one round around the Padang Ipoh which was just outside.
Sasi:Let me warm up with some tai chi first....huik!!!hah!!!huik!!!

Weird posing pictures ahead:

The guys were making fun of Mei Theng and my attempt to pose Bollywood style at the tree...But look what happened next:-
Just admit it,guys,we looked better next to the tree....blehh...

While we were walking our round around the field,we saw many couples at various spots. Before you start constructing romantic images of sitting-on-benches-holding-hands..they were sitting back to back with laptops on their knees. kidding. There's free WiFi in that area and these people actually purposely drive there at night and sit at the benches around the field to online. How romantic huh...Perhaps this is proof how important online-ing is in some people's life until they would drive out at night to sit in a mosquito infested,deserted field where there's huge risk of getting robbed and also soaked by rain. Or maybe its just the FREE WiFi. (Just airing my personal offence meant)

Anyway,it was a totally awesome birthday party.I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!
And also...thanks to all the rest who weren't around to celebrate with me but still remembered and sent me birthday wishes.I love you too!!!!!
