California, don't stop the party #2

Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park

This place is claimed to be the first amusement park in America. I had tons of fun with my host family and Lizzy and Isabella here!
I'm so proud of myself for going on the Silver Bullet ride. I was so excited when I was in line, but I was like 'GEEZ GET ME OUT OF THIS PLACE' the moment I had my seat belt buckled. And then I screamed on top of my lungs thinking that I was going to die.

Oh and by the way, I love the boysenberry sauce here! It's so dang good. I had fried alligator bites (I know that sounds so weird) but it tastes so good! Kind of like a combination of chicken and shrimp. Dipped in boysenberry sauce. Yummmm! So. Good.

Here's a short video of the Silver Bullet ride from other user on Youtube:

It was tons of fun!!

Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal City

I'm really lucky because The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was opened to the public back in April 2016. Like the timing is so dang right I cry.

This. Place. Is. Definitely. A. Dream-Come-True. I cried that night because the feeling was too overwhelming. I'VE BEEN DREAMING OF THIS DAY SINCE 5 YEARS AGO WHERE I STARTED WATCHING HARRY POTTER. Thank you so much to the Pramshafers!!

Here's a video of us running to be the first in line! Hah.

Who's ready to meet Dumbledore?!

Buttered beer tastes so good!

w/ my American mom!

and my American sis!

Another studio tour!

Lastly, I present to you,

Disneyland, Anaheim

It was grad nite. Basically there's like two parts in Disneyland, one which is Disneyland, and the other is California Adventure. After 10pm, the park will be closed but high school seniors (or middle schools 8th graders lol) get a chance to stay at Disney's California Adventure until 2am with the grad nite special tix.

(Once again, thanks to my host family for giving me a chance to join the trip and also my parents for approving it! :P)

not-so-dab dab


So ayyy here's a video of part of the Disney Parade before the park closes! There's another video here, check it out on my Facebook!

The Hollywood Tower! This ride gave me the ultimate panic attack. I thought I was going to die for real. I was literally shaking and trembling with tears in my eyes when I got out from the 'escalator'. Dropping from 10th floor is no joke.
p/s: It's permanently closed now, so glad that I went on it even though I would never go for the second time.

w/ da girlz
There were raving sessions for grad nite. Kid me or not, somebody got so high he started throwing dollar bills. (but I'm too short to get it. Ugh)

The night ended with a musical fountain show!

I apologize for the bad quality of these photos. But that's all I've got and I think the stories behind them are what truly matter. Anyway, I have tons of stories to tell. I'll write about Zion National Park in my next post. Stay tuned!

Life as a Form 6 Student / STPM Candidate

Back in 2016, I joined Form 6 without second thoughts because

I didn't want to limit my options for the future (which is why I turned down a 100% scholarship for foundation in Xiamen University Malaysia)I didn't want to pay for A-Levels (I could only get partial scholarships)I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and I didn't want to choose a diploma yet
I swear to God, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

I was a straight A's student in SPM 2015 and yet I find STPM extremely challenging. If I say I worked 100% hard for my SPM, I definitely worked at least 800% harder for STPM. Like my friend once said, you won't know if you are really good in academics until you've come to STPM.
10A's in SPM is really nothing compared to 4.0 in STPM. 

I took Pengajian Am, Physics, Chemistry and Maths (T) in Form 6. Yup, "just" 4 subjects. If you are thinking "Oh come on, we took around 10 subjects in SPM! It can't be that hard to slay just 4 subjec…

Life In The U.S.A. #8 - Close to The End

Counting down 9 days till I leave Vegas...

Yes, I'm excited to go home and meet my beloved family and friends, but I'm really sad to leave my wonderful host family and my amazing friends.

I still remember how I felt during my flight. I was nervous but super excited that meet my host family. I was thinking how should I call them and what I can say if things get awkward. And yay I arrived. I remember the first thing I saw when I arrived at the McCarran International Airport - slot machines. Dang. It's Vegas being Vegas. *laugh* (And guess what? There are slot machines in the pharmacies too! No idea why but it doesn't matter. It's Vegas. That explains it all.) I remember my host mum was looking smoking hot at the airport :P And we went to... (Let's just skip it. I swear I can tell you every single detail that happened on my first day here but I don't know how long I will take to finish it.)

My exchange journey had been amazing. It's full of ups and downs. …

Koh Samui, Thailand

Sawadikap! Just got back from Koh Samui few days ago and I really had a blast there. It was fun, relaxing, and wild at the same time.

How to get there?
1. Direct flight to Koh Samui.
I flew to Koh Samui from Kuala Lumpur with Bangkok Airways. The flight was only 1 hour 30 minutes, but it costed me around RM790 (round trip). I did enjoy flying with Bangkok Airways tho. They offered 30kg luggage allowance per passenger and also free meals! (bonus: their food is delicious!)

2. Fly to Surat Thani, take a bus to the pier, and then get on a boat to Koh Samui.
The flight ticket is much more cheaper. However, it's very time consuming to travel all the way from the airport in Surat Thani to Koh Samui. It will take you approximately 7 hours. I'm not entirely sure about the details but you can look for more information on other websites.

How to get around on the island?
1. Rent a car or a motorbike
This may be the cheapest way to get around if you are traveling around the island. However, you…
