The Present

This jem of a book was given to me by Jie Hui for my 19th birthday. =)
(Thank q Kak~ ^^)
It has taught me a valueble lesson which is to be more aware of the happenings surrounding myself.. 

This year, i came across another book of Spencer Johnson's..

Learn from the Past,
Live in the Present,
Plan for the Future.

That is what I've learnt form 'The Present'.. I realised that i do not spend enough time LIVING in the PRESENT and focusing on the task at hand =P it's amazing how often I let my mind wonder during classes and even during conversations with others! XD 
Ding Dong~ it's high time for me to learn from my past, focus on the present and plan for my future~ 
This book has been a valuable wake up call for me.. =) 

 I highly recommend these 2 books to be read by those who have not.. since i am currently in possession of both, please feel free to borrow them from me as these books prove to be very quite costly.. =) 

Next book on my list is..

I was also reminded of this verse in the bible..

 弟兄们,我不是以为自己已经得着了。我只有一件事,就是忘记背后努力面前的,向着标竿直跑,要得神在基督耶稣里从上面召我来得的奖赏。(腓3:13 - 14)

 The bible has already written down these life lessons about 2000 years ago! In the book of Philippians~ How great is the wisdom God within the bible! =) Now, i wonder.. wherein did Spencer got his ideas from.. ? XD haha..

La Lasagna

Mum had to attend a Techer's Day Dinner in Putrajaya.. so, that made Chef Denise in charge of dinner for the 3 girls left at home =P It was a perfect opportunity to try something new that my mum abhores~ Lasagna~ ^__^ 

First, prepare the ingredients~

 4 lagsana sheets, half a bottle of prego sauce, a cup of milk, 6 pieces of Cheesedale Cheddar, 250g of minced beef, 2 tbs of butter and flour, oil, Parmesan cheese powder, oregano, salt + pepper, chopped half a carrot, 1 onion and 5 cloves of garlic.

Then, cook the meat sauce. heat the oil, sauté the onion, garlic and carrot, add the beef and cook till it turns brown.  After that, add the prego sauce ( actually people make their own tomato sauce from tomatoes and stuff, using prego is cheating XD ) and water and let it boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes. 

Next, the cheese sauce~ melt 2 tbs of butter and stir in 2 tbs of flour over small fire. Then, remove the pan/pot from the heat and add 2 cups of milk. Put it back over the heat and add in the sliced cheddar cheese. (Packets of cheese sold in supermarket are sooo expensive, so i opted for sandwich cheese which turned out ok too ^^) Stir the mixture all the while  (u won't want it to burn ) till it is smooth.

Lastly, we layer the it~ start with the meat sauce at the bottom, then layer it accordingly - lasagna, meat sauce, cheese sauce. Keep repeating the layers and end with the cheese sauce right on the top. I managed to complete 4 layers only as my baking dish is too small.. Used up only half of the cheese sauce, so will reduce the cheese sauce recipe by half next time. =P Sprinkle a lil cheese powder on top and walah~ it's ready for the oven =)

I added a lil too much cheese powder on the top, which surprisingly doesn't melt in the oven =.= anyways, preheat the oven at 200 degree Celsius and cover the dish with aluminium foil before baking it for 40 minutes. Only remove the aluminium foil for the last 10 minutes 



TaDaA~ ^_^

I'm a LEX student!

Remember my previous post bout how ready i was bout studying LAW? if u do, forget all about it!! Studying law is CRAP!!! The mountains load of information that we need to read and know is IMPOSSIBLE!! The acts, the case studies, the analysis! How could i be sooooo NAIVE~ How the hell am i supposed to write 12 pages of facts for my exam in 3 hours??? I didn't sign up for this Sh*t!! 

I QUIT!! Going back to UPM next week!


Seriously, do u think I'd do that? XD I'm not going back to UPM lah..=P just fooling around.. But the reading and exam part of the above was real.. XD So.. almost done with week 2 of my Lex (law in Latin~) studies and am somehow or another enjoying myself.. =P No maths~~ Am finally free of its 13 years of torture~~ ^__^ however, every page i flip now is all covered in words.. words, Words, WORDS!! Am missing the colourful bio cell diagrams and molecule structures.. XD Seriously, there's lots of reading to do, if u don't like reading its gonna be pure torture!! 

There's also one downside bout studying at ATC... No campus life!!! T^T all my friends who entered public uni posted on facebook about how they were torturous their orientation week was.. am so envious XD well, at least they've experienced it before.. most of the atc seniors are still on holiday.. they will only be back in sept.. 

Have not got my textbooks yet.. i have to be officially accepted as a student of the University of London External Program before getting my textbooks flown from UK.. am in the process of applying now.. in the mean time.. we're photostatting! XD talk about copyright infringement.. haha.. hm.. so far the lessons are.. fast? XD we've already finished the first chapter in Contract L and Criminal L.. O.O its seems that the higher up the academic ladder we climb, the faster the teachers teach.. have to get used to studying law.. need to find my style of studying~ XD  no more spoon feeding~ XD actually am still a lil in the holiday mood..XD have to jiayou orh~ no more procrastinating! =P plus, i got myself in a debate! XD Should UK adopt a written constitution? I'm on the supporting team.. hm.. think i better start doing research for the debate next week instead of blogging.. =P

Some times there is no next time, no second chance, no time out. Sometimes... it's now or never!

better start studying.. =P
