The Blogger

Hey! My name is En Qi (pronounced as En-Chee) or you can call me Angie.

I was born in this beautiful place - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia back in 1998 but grew up in Selangor. I went to SJK(C) Sungai Buloh for primary education and SMK Bukit Rahman Putra for secondary education. Blessed enough, I was given an opportunity to live in United States of America for 5 months back in 2016. Hosted in Las Vegas, I went to Palo Verde High School, Summerlin for a school semester as a scholarship exchange student. I graduated and received my Malaysian Higher School Certificate (STPM) from Desa Mahkota Form 6 College in 2017.

I would love to be immortal if given any chance because there is so many things to do in life. I learned a little about piano and guitar in the past but ugh I'm still terrible at musical instruments. Started dancing back in December'14, I am really proud to say that I am still working hard on it. I dream to travel solo in the future, so I've been picking up martial arts lately just in case. I've been trying to be active in volunteerism as well so if you have any volunteering event just hook me up!

If you have any question regarding being an exchange student or you just simply want to talk, feel free to reach me at my email : or go to my Facebook | TwitterInstagram.

Tons of love, xx

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. …

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…

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…
