Today I burned my 5 years worth of memories away…


Those were my diaries from 2001-2006. I was a regular diary writer last time, since I was a little girl.

I first started to wrote a diary when I was in the 1st year of Primary school. After that, I kinda stop writing, then when I was in Junior High.

Looking back, it was so silly of me to have written all those stuffs, pasted all those stuffs given to me by the guy I like, all the secrets, hidden feelings, and all. Lol

I am not doing it anymore after I graduated from Junior High (if I am not mistaken la).

While I was doing spring cleaning, I collected these diaries (which worked as my daily planner too) and decided to burn them. Cos if I threw them just like that, there is still possibilities people might go and read it.Paiseh le!

So I burned them one by one…with mind flying away as the memories fade away…

Wth. I sounded so poetic! Ya ya I know I am talented. Lol :p

Ok la, I didn’t burn them all. It’s so mafan, you know. First I tried to burn some pages from one of the diaries (the one in the photo shown above), ya la it was easy, but it was so messy! The black left overs was flying around and made a mess on the kitchen floor and on the stove.

So I tore the pages instead. Not one by one la of course. If like that, I will die of boredom beforehand.

While tearing the pages off, I found some old stuffs inside that bring back the memories. They may not interest you, so you may as well point your mouse to the up right and click on the red cross button.

When I was in High School, my diary was like an all-in-one book. There, I wrote the upcoming tests, school homeworks, rants, and nonsense stuffs. I even paste photos and pictures there.

My diary is also a place for some friends of mine to pour out their creativity (I just remembered that I used to use an organizer as well. There are lots of my friends’ drawings there. But I didn’t take pictures of them)

Those two are Lisan’s drawing. She was one of my close friends in HS and she has a talent in drawing, especially in drawing manga. The cuteness of her character always mesmerize me and the other. She even drew a picture of me as my birthday present! πŸ˜€

This one is just a nonsense doodle of Erlin. Lol. No dear, I didn’t mean anything bad πŸ™‚
You see the curly-head there? I drew it, and wrote the name “Tugiyem” under it. Why Tugiyem? It’s a nickname I gave Lisan while we went on school retreat. It got quite popular among some of us, and even the pastor at the retreat place called her with that name. LMAO. It just sounded so kampung, okay? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…
Sorry la San, I’ve never meant bad to you about it πŸ™‚

My agenda (I use vocab other than ‘diary’, ok?) was also the place for me to write my tests’ scores.

That was my accounting tests’ score. I got 4.9 for the 1st one, 3 on the 2nd one, and a perfect score of 10 on the 3rd one. Am I just smart or what? Magic.

Ehhhh I found some old sticker photos of me and one of my best friends, Aponk πŸ˜€
I (we) look so ridiculous. Should I show you guys?


But promise me you won’t laugh! >.<

Cos I really looked….ermmm….

Promise me, k?

You sure you wanna see?

Ok la, here goes… *don’t laugh!*

Umm…I think it doesn’t look that bad, does it? LOL

Anyway, I have a habit of collecting tickets as mementos. Like when I go traveling, I will keep even the slightest thing some people may find uninteresting for me to keep as a memento. From Indonesia to Singapore to Malaysia to Australia to Hongkong to China to USA. I also collect hotel card keys. I guess hotels will have to spend extra money to make more card keys as I always steal one of them, sometimes even both of them! (they usually give you 2 card keys right?)

Don’t believe me? I have the KLCC’s RM2 toilet ticket. Seriously, I keep it. LOL

Yes I know I have a weird fetish other than shoes.

Last time I used to stick those tickets in my diary, but after that I just keep them safe and sound. These are the ones I found in my diaries:

Oi, you seriously still read this ka? After this I am gonna explain one by one about those stuffs. Are you sure you still wanna read it? Boring le.

Ok la, you are hard-headed.

Go on, read.

But don’t blame me if you die from high level of boredom.

I think that was the first time I went to Gedung Kesenian Jakarta (Jakarta Art Performances Building). I went to watch an Italian doll show by the Italian doll master, Mr. Mimmo Cuticchio. I think I went there with my parents and some family’s close friends. I remember it was very entertaining to see Mr. Cuticchio moving those dolls in the story (it was some kind of marionette on stage)

As what it says, this is a food vouchers’ book from the British International School (BIS), Jakarta. My parents and I together with some close family’s friends (erm..can be said our outing gang because we often went for outings last time, i.e: trekking, hiking, bird watching, jogging, etc. Basically sports and art) went for the BIS annual charity road race. We went there for the consecutive 2 years if I am not mistaken (2003 and 2004). It was basically a running race and the money went to charity. I wonder if they still held it now.

This was when I was taking violin course in Purwacaraka music school. We were having this home concert in Rendesvouz cafe (the place is so small for a cafe). Now the cafe has turned to a … ( forgotten. Forget it)

I love jazz! I remember going to this ‘Pasar Jazz (Jazz Market)’ and felt so bored in the middle of the show because of this couple who played sooooooooooooooooooo slowwwwwwwwww jazz music that my friends fell asleep. Not just them, I saw a lot who fell asleep too. LOL. But aside from that, it was quite entertaining. That was when my love for jazz has just started to grew.

I just realized that this concert was just 12 days before the ‘Pasar Jazz’! This time, it was a Symphony Orchestra from Nova Amadeus, a music school in Jakarta. My mum’s friend bought me the ticket because she knows I love music. So I went there with her and her 2 kids who are like my own brother and sister (both are younger than me).

Wahahahaha this is an accidental denim. There’s a story behind it. That day, I was waiting for the bus outside LUCT (Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, my uni-red) to go to KL for an interview in Kinokuniya KLCC as the Part-time Sales Assistant. It was cloudy and I’ve waited so long for the bus. To make things worse, it started to rain……heavily! Not like those rain who started from drizzle to heavy. This one was straight away pours down! I quickly took out my umbrella and asked the girl who was waiting for the bus as well to share my umbrella. Kasian la. And there were another 2 guys who was waiting also, and they didn’t have umbrella with them so they have to run and stay under the tree (actually it’s dangerous, isn’t it?). Lol. While waiting, My Levi’s was soaked. More because it’s too long for me and I fold up the end, so the folding part kinda ‘keeping’ water -_-“
Can’t help it tho. My jeans was all soaked. I couldn’t sit comfortably in the bus, feeling cold. Dammit! So when I reached KLCC, I still got an hour away to the interview. I went and look for a pair of new jeans. I had to la. How could I possibly went for an interview in a soaked pants, right? So I looked around and finally bought a pair in Topshop. And I didn’t know why the hell did I picked one size bigger than it should -_- I wear size 28 and I took size 30 instead (there’s no size 29 in Topshop). Maybe cos that time my thighs were quite damp from the soaked jeans and I felt comfortable wearing size 30….wrong decision cos it is too large for me I always need to wear a belt every time I wear it…

This is so memorable! Because that was the first time I went to watch a performance with Muchi! πŸ˜€
We went to watch Gamarjobat, a comedy show, and we didn’t regret, even a bit. It was super funny and entertaining and we laughed our tummies off from the start till the end of the show. Hahaha.

This is the ticket of my high school’s sports and art exhibition…

…Lap X…

Every year my high school (which is my junior high school as well, in case you’re wondering – which I think you’re not) held a sports competition and art exhibition (2 in 1), and it keeps on getting better each year. I once got invited by my friend to the 2006 one, and when I saw the poster, I was like…’Wow, Laurensia can arrange such an event’ . They even invited some famous musicians to perform on stage. The first time we had it, it was far from what it is now. Oh well, time’s changed.

Cosmo’s World Theme Park!!! πŸ˜€
That was the first time I went there, with Juan my housemate@tuwins πŸ™‚
No plan to go there at first, actually. It was just a spontaneous one. Lol
And we had fun πŸ˜€

Kinokuniya’s Christmas discount card. Buy RM50 worth of stuffs and you’ll get 1 stamp at the back. Collect 3 stamps and you’ll get discount. Hahaha I sound like some SPG.
I dunno why I keep this. Probably cos Malaysia’s Kino doesn’t have membership card so I keep this instead…What a pity (btw, I just want to say that I really enjoyed my time when I was working in Kino. It was so much fun, well at least for me :D)

Oil drums, brooms, pails, garbage cans, pots, pans, tins, wooden sticks, keys, and bells were singing harmoniously on stage. Yessshhhh it’s STOMP! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
I sooooo love STOMP man! They are sooooo cool!!
You don’t know what STOMP is? Go google! They are like the coolest art performance group ever!

STOMP, a unique combination of percussion, movement, and visual comedy
Taken from STOMP’s website

They are seriously sooo great! The way they combine the household appliances to make sounds and music, the way they move around in harmony, the way they crack the jokes using sound and music…just one word to describe it: COOL!!

Oh wait, make it 2 words: SUPER COOL!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

I straight away wanted to watch STOMP once I saw the poster in the newspaper. Angelica, another housemate of mine, wanted to go as well. So we went together to the Istana Budaya.

The show was totally interesting and she liked it too! It was definitely worth every single cent we spent on the ticket. I think the ticket cost RM 200+ each.

I remember it ended around 10:30 pm and we had Tom Yum before sitting on the monorail as the last passengers to KL sentral and took the KLIA transit to Putrajaya and asked our devoted taxi driver to fetch us there and sent us back to Puchong (we were still staying in Puchong back then).

I wanna watch STOMP again!

The Nici tag from Udong! My beloved cute giraffe πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
Yea yea, I know. What the heck right? Oh well, I just like the cute cartoon drawing and Udong is my first Nici doll before Ducil πŸ˜€

*I know by this time you must be thinking “what a weird girl”*

After (I think) 7/8 years + of not going to Dunia Fantasi (Dufan – Fantasy World), I finally paid it a visit with Juan and some of her friends (whom 1 one of them is my primary school friend). It was quite a fun riding those silly and scary rides. (Yes, it is a theme park in Jakarta)

When we were q-ing for the ‘Halilintar’ (the big roller coaster) for the second time, it was already around 5pm+. I remember feeling ‘dizzy’ while I was standing on the stairs waiting for our turn. It was only after the ride that my dad called me on my cell and told me that there was an earthquake just now…it was when I felt like ‘dizzy’! Luckily it was not a big one, otherwise….*I dunwan to even think about it*

This will make you go “what the heck?!” again. Hahahahaha.
Those are Rapid KL’s bus tickets. Why I keep it, you asked. Simply because they are dated August 17th 2008. August 17th is Indonesia Independence Day!

Oneworld club is an internal club of LUCT. This card allows us to get discount on food and beverages at Wings Coffee, LUCT’s own coffee shop. Nothing special other than that tho.

No no no, this isn’t a discount voucher for Quiksilver the clothing gear. It’s this Quicksilver. It’s the famous Quicksilver cruise of Bali. I went on board when I went to Bali with a number of neighbors last December 2005. It was a really fun time. Especially among us the teenagers πŸ˜€

Eh, that’s all ar? So little only? I thought I had quite a lot…
Ah well nevermind.
Ciao!~ ^^

p.s: Anyone wanna share their diaries with me? πŸ˜‰
