Update : Passed! THANK YOU DEAR LORD! Passing each of my paper is like winning a lottery every single time.
because of my hectic study schedule, I have neglected my blog every three months. Which is approximately the period of each of my semester. Which also means one post in every three months this year.
Lets do a little recap over the past few months shall we?

CFAB Exchange Lunch @ the Atrium Cafe in Sunway's Hotel and Resorts
With all the lovely ladies :
We planned to all dress up together for this event! First time dressing up with the girls! The night before we were spamming each other on Whatsapp to decide on what to wear! Lets do it again soon girls! :)
After the free lunch from Sunway TES, we headed down to Kuala Lumpur! The ladies sat in Quan Xin's car while the guys had to take the bus and then the LRT all the way there. Privilege of being a girl yay?
Caryn had gotten a free room at the Swiss-Garden Residences. A little getaway before hectic November starts and also a great time to throw her a surprise party while at it! Her birthday was the day before. I however didn't slept over with the gang :( Oh well, it was an absolutely fun day nonetheless!
Swiss Garden Residences is located near a LRT station. or is it a MRT? I have no idea. Anyhow, lets just say that public transport is easily reached. We walked from the Residence to the Station is minutes and off we went to Lot 10!
Kai Wen bought coupons from LivingSocial to eat at Teeq Brasseries! It was pretty worth it considering that we only need to pay half the price! The environment was lovely too! Its located on Lot10's rooftop.

We spent a lot of time taking pictures and just enjoying the night. We decided to go back to the hotel at around 9:30PM?
At that time, the LRT station was packed with people! The first train came and it was already mad full! Couldn't manage to squeeze in and had to get left behind with Quan Xin and Foong Junn. Sad kids we were haha. After a few minutes passed, the next train came and we were all reunited again.
We did the most YOLO thing that night, well at least I did in my life haha! We forgotten that we had to take the bridge to cross to the other side of the road and we were too lazy to climb up the stairs ( the boys only ) Never in my life am I going to jaywalk on KL roads. The roads were zooming with cars and we decided to make run for it. We made it out alive. Adrenaline rush! WHOOP.
When we came back to the Residence, we had to go up in two batches. Hoping that they won't stop 8 people squeezing into a room hahaha. Which was what we had planned because we had a little surprise up our sleeves for Caryn!
In the afternoon, we managed to ask the Management to help us safe keep the cakes we got for her. We actually took quite long to get everything done, thank goodness she didn't even suspect a thing! Our excuse was actually pretty good too, camwhore mah!
While everyone was chilling, I managed to sneak in the cakes without anyone noticing. HEHE.
Caryn and her 'first' cake.
This is actually the "fake" cake. QX, WT & FJ planned to surprise scare her with a cockroach. So while she was making her wish, FJ placed a fake cockroach on the edge of the plate. When Caryn opened her eyes, she didn't notice it at first till she look down. Her reaction was priceless! Sorry Caryn! We didn't meant to scare you so much, just a little fun okay? Look back to this later in the years and laugh alright!
After that, QX, WT & FJ said they had to go to bed already because they have a marathon in the morning. So she thought that that was the only surprise. Little did she know, they were preparing and arranging the 'actual' cakes in the other room. The girls called us in one by one leaving Caryn alone in the living area until she came curiously. When she came, we started singing Happy Birthday and she literally fell on the floor and was filled with surprise! I bet you didn't had that coming!
Hope you enjoyed the surprise!
Cakes from Komugi !
Fun day indeed!

After class, a few of us stayed back to give Quan Xin and Wan Jin a surprise birthday. Quan Xin's birthday was actually on the 12th of November and Wan Jin's birthday is on 14 November. The plan was to surprise QX first while making Wan Jin think that no one remembered about her coming birthday and then after making her feel sad, only surprised her. It was pretty successful! Hope you had fun and like the gifts girls!

Went to an event held at KPMG. Later found out it was titled as ICAEW Student Network 2013. But the talk was mainly about ethics given by Michael Izza, CEO of ICAEW.

Guess what day is today?
Management Information Mock and my 18th Birthday. What a combo.
Started my day off bad. Didn't manage to get through my mocks by ONE questions. It's my birthday and this is the kind of luck I get? I'm praying with my life that I'll get through my Finals. Please Pass!
I was pretty emo after the exam. Man, lets not talk about that, its suppose to be a happy day for me!
My classmates are the sweetest! Thank you so much all you lovely people! Thanks everyone for the wish! Much appreciated! ♡
Them singing Happy Birthday to me from the ground floor while I was standing on the first floor! HAHA WHY SO CUTE ONE!
By now, you should know that my classmates love throwing surprises! Well I was pretty surprise actually! I didn't even expect this at all! After mocks, everyone said they had to rush back and I was actually pretty sad. Thought they forgotten that it was my birthday today and wouldn't be celebrating it with me.
Yik Ming asked me a few days before if I was free on my birthday because he said Kai Wen, Caryn and him confirmed that they wanted to have lunch/celebrate my birthday after mocks. I actually thought it was just four of us having lunch. How naive can I get man! But that was the point right? haha! I'm a sucker for sarcasm.
After I thought everyone left and went back home, four of us went to Pyramid with Kai Wen's car. Kai Wen parked at the furthest side and made us walk. I don't know if that was intentionally or not but it was pretty funny. Either he wanted to time or he just wanted to make all of us walk more.
They planned to have lunch at OverTime. OverTime was at the other end of Pyramid when we got out from the carpark. So to drag time, Caryn pulled me into shops after shops! Not that I mind, shopping is my muse. We visited the newly open H&M at Pyramid. Lot 10's H&M still wins hands down.
After I dunno how long of window shopping, we finally manage to make our way to OverTime. I was mad surprised to see the other group of my classmates all sitting there! They started singing Happy Birthday when I came in. Either I'm a bimbo for not seeing that coming my way or they're really good at throwing surprises. HAHA
We chatted while we waited for our food... Suddenly everyone started singing Happy Birthday again! I turned around and saw Quan Xin, Wen Ting & Foong Junn bringing three slices of cake towards me! Mad touched! I love you guys ♡
Cakes! I was to my heart is through my stomach! This was the only cake I got this year. Cherish it! ♡
My wishes are gonna be the same for the next few years. Please come true!

Thanks for the cute gift QX, WT & FJ! How did you guys know that I'm an inner alcoholic? Hershey's Chocolate in Wine Glasses! ♡
Thanks for the gift Wan Jin! ♡
Thanks for the lunch too guys! Paiseh make you guys pay for my meal :/ After lunch, Kai Wen dropped me and Yik Ming back to college where Yik Ming had parked his car. When we arrived, an asshole had double parked his car and didn't leave his number. Hello, common courtesy please! I should have used a maker and wrote on his car. After 5-10 minutes of honking and waiting, we decided to try and squeeze out. Luckily YM's car was a Myvi, managed to squeeze out without a scratch!
Reached home around 3PM. I was happily going through the pictures then suddenly Kai Wen texted me asking if I was home, which I was. He said he and Caryn were coming over to pass me my birthday gift! OMG GUYS! ♡
Mad cute Ice Cream! Mad yummy too! ♡
At night, had dinner with the family at Decanter at Section 17. Nice place with good food! Recommended! (Y)
