.one sweet day.

I had a long but very good day. :)

Jimmy's car broke down yesterday,
and Sherman went to rescue him.
So today,
I got my bro's car and helped Jimmy sort out his stuff.
I drove to sOo many places I've never driven to before,
and had so much fun.

oH.. and something reli special happened today too.
I met Jimmy's parents.

The initial plan was to go to his parents' house to borrow his mum's car.
But when we got there,
His parents ushered us into the house and we started talking.
First, we stood around the kitchen,
discussing Jimmy's car and etc...
Then we moved it into the living room,
where I got served with Kahlua and Milk,
and chocolates and peanuts.

It was awkward (in a good, fun way) when his dad,
in the midst of telling his son what a crap car he's got,
said something like:
"well, your car broke down, but at least we get to meet your girlfriend."
Just felt really sweet.

I noticed many cute things about his parents.
They were definitely a happy couple,
and its just so sweet to watch.
We talked and laughed alot about everything.

His mum and I talked about cooking and food,
and Belacan and speaking french and Indonesian/Malay,
and how she gets upset when she watches people lose money on (TV) "Deal or Not Deal" becuz of greed...
And it was reli cute when his dad told me how difficult it is to put up with his wife when she gets upset becuz of tv shows.
... and then Jimmy put his arms around me and said,
"Hmm... that reminds me of someone I knoww..."
(referring to my Man Utd frenzy)

His dad also took interest in my horoscope and chinese zodiac,
and tried to use that to see if me and Jimmy would be a good match.
He said a Capricorn would be good for their son,
cuz Jimmy needs someone who would ground him,
and keep him focus on his goals...
(Capricorns and Aries are SO WRONG together btw)

And then when I told him Im born in the year of the Rat,
his dad raised his eyebrow and said I could be cunning.
haHaa then I laughed and said,
"yeaaaa... i have my moments..." ^^
They laughed.

Jimmy said they liked me.
I hope thats trueee...
Its not like Im gonna marry Jimmy or anything,
(havent even thought about that)
But its always nice to know that parents liked you.

It was funny when we were walking out the house,
His dad said,
"You're a nice girl"..
then added,
"-at least I hope you're a nice girl."

His dad also gave me some heads up about his son,
he said,
"he's got a bad temper and he's very stubborn."
heHhee I smiled and said,
"He's a good guy." - in responce.

And before I left,
his dad kissed my cheeks and said,
"Thats the french way"...

Nice day.

And what made things even more perfect,
Cant wait to take him around!!

.me; after exams.

I was suppose to go clubbing tonite.
Club Kandy event... Tie Party.
Then I decided I wasn't really up for it...
So I stayed home,
and I ended up doing laundry, vacuming and cleaning the toilet.
(Im yet to clean my room,
but maybe not tonite)

Selina left for HK on Saturday.
The house has been very quiet since.
Sheman's still having exams on,
so he goes to study at Uni every night...
Sheena's exam ended on Saturday,
So she's been chillin' and relaxin' with Reza.

Well, Jimmy has been around quite often.
And frankly,
its great that he is cuz the house can get a bit too quiet when he isnt.

Im currently sitting in my living room,
Frustrated at Cyrus' pirated "Love Actually" VCD,
with an impulse body spray next to me.

You may wonder whats up with the impulse?
It could be a psychological thing,
But I keep hearing noises around the house.
AND cats (that I never usually hear) are making reaaally scary noises outside.
Im trying to convince myself its their "horny" noise,
Instead of their "I see a ghost" noise...

SoOo... I just thought,
With the impulse next to me,
I can spray it on whatever that bounces or hops on me or something.

Its not ghost or stuffs like that that Im scared of.
Im more worried about people breaking in,
and robbing or raping. :(

So yea.
The impulse gives me a bit of a sense of security.
Like a weapon. *sigh*

I was suppose to be having lots of parties and fun after my exams!
But so far, I've had NONE.
Its kinda sad when I think about it.
Then again,
Like tonite,
It was my choice NOT to go for the KK event.

Well... Partly thats because Sherman isn't home,
and I havent told him I will be going out,
and I didnt wanna go out without telling him,
soOo... hmMm...

ooH... Melissa and Allen is here!!
YAY! Im not alone nemore!!

.why i would be a successful lawyer.

First of all,

Next thing:

Well, I was thinking,
Do I really have what it takes to be a lawyer?
Then I realised... I just might.
After all,

I've already got the lawyer/client handling skills ready. ^^

Check me out:

1) This is my "Hello, Im your legal adviser, Sherlene Lee" face -
(sweet and not too serious, yeaa? - it makes them more comfortable ^^)

2) This is my "listening-to-your-case" face -

3) This is my "are-you-sure-you're-telling-me-everything?" cheeky face -
(although this face could be mistaken to say "are u married? ^^")

4) This is my "are-u-kidding-me?-you-dont-stand-a-chance-buddy!" face -

5) This is "reallly?-you're-a-millionaire-and-would-pay-me-anything??" face -
(no reason to NOT keep a generous client, rite?)

6) These are my "thinking" faces -

7) Then this would be my "Im-so-frustrated" face -
(cuz my client is probably a d*ck who deserved to camp behind bars)

8) Then I'd put on my fake-laugh and tell my client to wait for my call -

9) Then after he leaves,
For sure...
I'd bitch about him with colleagues -

10) And then, because I am, after all, Sherlene Lee...
I'd still have my "dreaming-about-my-sweetheart" face whenever I get spare time -

.email from daddy; which of these "farters" are u?.

Types of farters
A person who loves the smell of his own farts
A person who loves the smell of other people's farts
A person who thinks his farts are exceptionally fine
A person who releases silent farts and then blushes
A person who boldly farts out loud and then laughs
A person who tries awfully hard to fart but poops instead
A person who farts regularly but is only concerned about pollution
A person who stops in the middle of his fart
A person who admits he farted but offers good medical reasons
A person who farts and then blames the dog
A person who suppresses a fart for hours and hours
A person who has several good farts in reserve
A person who excuses himself and farts in complete privacy
A person who conceals his farts with loud coughing
A person who farts in bed and then fluffs the cover over his bedmate
A person who can determine from the smell of his neighbor's fart precisely the latest food item consumed
A person who farts at the slightest exertion
A person who would truly love to, but can't fart at all
A person who farts and then starts crying
I reckon I can be Shy or Impudent,
depending on who Im around...
I can also be Foolish...
Hate being foolish.
But I guess sometimes you dont have a choice.
oooH... and Im definitely Thrifty.
You guys probably didnt need to know all that, huh?

.hangin' out; loving the laughs.

My Friday was in the pits until Jimmy came over last nite.
We hung out and studied, until the next morning.
I made pancakes for breakfast. :)

There was something about last nite,
Everything spoken and done felt so real and sincere.
And he makes me laugh.
I like that.

June 15, 2007


This is me procrastinating -

This is me after finding out I got 2/15 for my tutorial participation marks -

Yea... Im depressed.

.so much for a happy ending.

Suddenly I had the urge to listen to
Avril Lavigne's My Happy Ending.
This song holds a lot of memories for me,
and has always worked as a reminder.

Everytime I listen to it,
It reminds me 'bout how easy it is to get hurt.
And how, as soon as you allow yourself to believe,
Thats is also when you're most prone to being let down.

I guess sometimes it better not to think at all.
Especially in the "dating game".
I think,
One day you could feel like he could be Mr Right,
and the next day,
He could just as easily walk out the door,
and you never see him again.
And all you're left with is probably thoughts like:

"Did I ever know him at all?"
"How did I allow myself to believe he could be the one?"
"Why did I let him so close, that he could hurt me?"

Love is about taking chances
so some may say.
Speak for those who has,
and got burnt,
and Never Recovered.

.sharif; my infatuation.

I clicked to enlarge this picture from my previous post;
and I just had to re-post it just to say:


and the 5 o'clock shadow...
And the fact that he sings and plays guitar.
And how he's so blur and soft-spoken and shy...
Need to stop.

...and by the way,
This was the dude she chose. (Banks)

Its funny how this reality show brought out Selina and my difference.
You see, Selina chose Banks.
The stable and ready-to-commit guy,
which you'd happily bring home to mummy and daddy,
and tell them this man is ready to love u until u die.

(cuz apparently him and Jackie broke up 2 years later cuz he wanted committment,
and she wanted to "find herself")

While I on the other hand,
I chose Sharif...
A musician who would serenade me with love songs,
and would probably care more about planning his tour dates
and recording his next album

than really being in a relationship.
(But Im being stereotypical. U never know, Sharif could be da' BoMb.^^)

And mind u, this isnt just about looks.
We've watched these guys throughout the series,
so we've seen a fair bit of their personality.
And even personality wise,
Selina chose Banks, and Im crazy bout Sharif.

I need to see something in Banks if I ever wanna get married and have kids and my own family.


.wish i could chose mr straight.

I watched "Playing it Straight" tonite...
It was the Finale.

Basically a reality show where one gal gets find "love" among 14 guys.
The twist is,
more than half of them are gay.
Every week she eliminates one by one.
(sometimes two)
And after they get eliminated,
She'd say:
"Before u go, I must know,
Are you gay or are u straight?"

Anywaaaay tonite,
She picked the final guy...
And yea, he was straight.
(sorry if I lack the enthusiasm - you'll see why in a minute)

Well, the 2 finalists....
Banks and Sharif,
She picked Banks...

(personally & looks wise - he's so cute!)

And Sharif was straight tooo!!!
And he really did like her!!

He was so heartbroken when she told him it wasn't gonna be him.
*heartbreaks* (MY heart breaks)

So anywaaaayy...
I went to look Sharif up. :)

He's on Myspace!!
Did I mention he's a musician??

Check him out:

ooH... and here's some good stuff to check out too:

(some candy for the eye ^^)

.me; half dead.

Im still up.
Its been 24 hours.
I feel myself dying slowly.
I cannot survive without sleep.

This memorandum is eating me alive.
Again, I wish I started earlier instead of killing myself at the last minute.
(like I always do - and regret)

Spent my night studying with Jimmy.
And I found out whats really his real name... *lol*

"Judicael Gaillard"

Now thats French. :) - I likeee...

June 8, 2007

.its today again.

8th June...
That only says one thing:

(wherever u are)
To people who dont know who Mahfuz is, no... he's not dead.
Sorry for making it sound like that.

June 7, 2007

.test addict; me & relationships.

This is the last test Im taking.

(at least for today)

Your Five Variable Love Profile

Propensity for Monogamy:

Your propensity for monogamy is medium.
In general, you prefer to have only one love interest.
But it's hard for you to stay devoted for too long!
There's too much eye candy to keep you from wandering.

Experience Level:

Your experience level is high.
You've loved, lost, and loved again.
You have had a wide range of love experiences.
And when the real thing comes along, you know it!


Your dominance is medium.
You tend to be the one with more power.
You aren't a total control freak in relationships..
But of course you don't mind getting you way!


Your cynicism is low.
You are an eternal optimist when it comes to love and romance.
No matter how many times you've been hurt - you're never bitter.
You believe in one true love, your perfect soulmate.
And if you haven't found true love yet, you know you will soon.


Your independence is high.
You don't need to be in love, and sometimes you don't even want love.
Having your own life is very important for you...
Even more important than having a relationship.

.test addict; i guess i do flirt.

You Are a Super Flirt

You love to flirt, so much so that it gets you in trouble.
In almost any situation, you find yourself flirting - even when it's inappropriate.
You tend to embrace all flirting styles too.. from coy to sexy to playful to serious.
And if someone flirts back, you'll crank it up even more!

.test addict; i didnt expect this.

You Are Most Like Charlotte!

You are the ultimate romantic idealist
You've been hurt before, but that hasn't caused you to give up on love.
If anything, your resolve to fall in love is stronger than ever.
And it's this feminine optimism that men find most appealing about you.

Romantic prediction: That guy you are seeing (or crushing on)?

Could be very serious - if you play your cards right!

.what can i say; i gamble with my heart.

You Are the Ace of Hearts

Youthful and playful, you love life and the world.
You have a kind spirit, and you bring happiness to everyone you know.

Artistic and bold, you see the world in bright colors.
And you certainly aren't afraid to express everything you see and feel.

You are sentimental, and your emotions are very deep.
You are easily swept away and easily hurt.

A gamble you should take: Blackjack

Your friends would describe you as: Unique

Your enemies would describe you as: Weepy

If you lived in Vegas, you would be: An up and coming chef or fashion designer

.here's what i think.

Everyone has their own problems.
Everyone has their way to express how they feel about their problems.

Why can't I accept that?

When people tell me about their problems,
I cant block out the voice in my head that says,
"exaggeration! exaggeration! exaggeration"
"drama queen/king!!"
"attention seeker!!"
"soOo pretentious!!"
"oHmyGod r u serious bout what u're saying?"
"oooH come oNnnn... seriously?"
"Do u hear yourself?"
"You cant reli be thinking thaaat..."

Maybe its a good thing I didn't study to be a psychologist.
I know its wrong to put down other's problems,
and make them feel as if their problems are insignificant.
I'd hate it if someone did that to me...

But sometimes...
You just cant help feeling/thinking,
"exaggeration! exaggeration! exaggeration"
"drama queen/king!!"
"attention seeker!!"
"soOo pretentious!!"
"oHmyGod r u serious bout what u're saying?"
"oooH come oNnnn... seriously?"
"Do u hear yourself?"
"You cant reli be thinking thaaat..."

Sorry for being disrespectful.
I guess, as a third party,
Its always easier to look inside and see things troubled-people can't see in their own lives...
And its also easier to advise them regarding their problems,
cuz we're not as emotionally driven as they are.

And dont get me wrong...
Im completely ok with people coming to me with problems.
But when their version of their story is soOoo overly exaggerated,
to the point that they dont even mean what they're saying,
I just cant help thinking they're being ridiculous.

(which very much demotivates me to give them helpful advise.
Cuz somehow I get the impression that they're enjoying the drama,
seeing that they even bother to add extra "spice" into it...
just to make things sound more "waaaa"...)

Im sorry again.
I need to be more understanding.
And also to shut up.

But really!!
Think about it...
If you're one of the people that subconciously tell your stories,
with extra bits that you somehow find necessary to exaggerate,
Maybe your problem, minus the exaggeration,
really isnt that bad after all...
Ever think about the logic of that?

.jimmy jimmy jimmy.

Jimmy dragged me out for lunch today.
*not complaining*

I learnt something new about him.
His name isn't really "Jimmy"...

He's French-Indonesian,
and so he owns a french name.
When his family moved here,
they changed his name.

I dont know the exact spelling of his name,
but its something like "Judikayen Gaillard"...
haHa dont quote me on that,
I will update that when I get confirmation.

While we were out today,
He passed me his mobile to show me his wallpaper.
It was the picture he took of me yesterday,
posing in front of his car.

:) So sweet.
n Im such a girl.
We're not THAT hard to please!

June 5, 2007

.the cherry on top.

Just had to add something rather sweet to my 5th June post.
While hangin out with Jimmy today,
He suddenly said -

"You know, its a month since we met"

And then I said...

"How'd u know? Didn't I meet u on a Saturday?"

And then he replied...

"Im going by the calender.
We met on the 5th. So today is a month."

:) He remembered.

By the way,
6th June... Happy Birthday Janit Labit!

.DFO rocks.

I drove Selina to the airport to send Cyrus' brother off today.
It was a fun drive cuz there were 4 of us,
All girls and all chatty and blah.

Well then,
I dropped Selina and Cecilia off at the International airport,
while Sheena and I went to the Direct Factory Outlet!
We were two happy little gals. :)
Shopping is always fun...
Although Im sure Sheena still wishes to go back and shop more,
cuz we had to rush off at the end,
and we didnt get to really see everything we wanted.
But yay! I bought two skirts!

SoOoo after that,
I met Jimmy cuz we made plans to study today.
We met up around 2.30pm,
and he had to leave at 7.30pm for futsal.
And well... thats... 5 hours in between?

Hmm... Ok... well...
No, we didn't get to study.
But we did enjoy each other's company alot.
Yea... I enjoyed those times.
I think he did too.

oH... and Im learning French now.
haHaaa not exactly learning,
but Im picking up a few words.

Jimmy said this to me today:
"je t'aime beaucoup"...
Hmm... or was it "je vous aime beaucoup"...

ANYWAY... :) Im happy.
Just need to study.

June 4, 2007

.exam exam exam.

Need to focus on exams.
To those who are slacking off like Me,

Final year students,
Dont be stupid.
You don't wanna be left behind.

Non-final year students,
Don't think its fun to do catching up.
Enjoy now, Pay later.

I need to graduate end of this year.

June 2, 2007

.the little things that counts.

A couple of sweet-little things that made me smile the last few days-

1. The girl talks. (plus emyne - haHaa)

2. How Lalat was comfortable enough to walk into my room in the morning while I was still asleep.
(goes to show how close we still are)

3. How I learnt that Ryan and I have freakishly so much in common.

4. How I had a sudden realization that my blog needs some cleaning up.
(which reflects alot on my current emotional state)

5. How Mouzam and I love our Gloria Jean's Iced White Chocolate,
and watching nice romantic comedies together.

6. Making new friends and feeling good about the impression you left on them.

7. Being able to lay on a bed when your body aches all over.

8. How Ivan can come to my house and although my family is in the middle of a family discussion,
He fits right in. :)

9. How 3 hours of work flies in a jiffy when you're in a good mood,
and striking random conversations with strangers.

10. Walking home with Selina and Ivan,
and holding Selina close cuz she was cold.
(and I miss cyrus)

I should be thankful for many things...
Instead of wasting so much time thinking of certain things/people,
who probably only see you as...
I dont know...
Lets just say,
Not as what you wish they would see you as.

Therefore, the things/people that arent worth it...
They need to be blocked out.
