Kampua Talk: September 2006

Kampua Talk

Friday, September 29, 2006


Mid semester break officially started on the 15th September 2006. With that, it meant anything related to assignments, exams, homeworks, etc is out of topic for as long as the duration of the holiday! Heheh! And with that also, it meant famine had officially struck Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) as every taukeh also took break. As a result, majority of those who didn't balik kampung had to depend on Maggi Mee to survive till 21st Sept. I was not one of them. To stay alive, I consumed this:

The Spirulina Cereal.
A substitution for a meal. Contains all the nutrient that are needed by our body per meal. It's aromatic smell even before you add boiling water (that means once you tear open the packet) is enough to make you crave for it. With no preservatives, no colourings, no sugar at all, this is a perfect meal for diabetics, obese and those who want to go on a diet without actually starving yourself to death to have the satay stick figure~! Alright, enough said.

Apart from that, drought had struck UUM a few days before the mid-semester break. I heard that the water crisis swept from UUM till Jitra or vice versa. This, thus, made it even harder to survive. The drought and famine had actually prompted me to get out of this place as fast as possible.

And hence, I forced myself to wake up 7 early 8 early in the morning to catch the scrap metal (HBR Bus) to Shahab Perdana Bus Terminal in Alor Star which was about 1 hour from UUM. From there, I took the 10.00am Triton bus to Kota Bharu, Kelantan. Well, to make the long, torturing, winding, bumpy, nauseating journey short, I arrived in Kota Bharu at 6.00pm where my friend (also coursemate) - Ong Shin Khai - picked me up.

With stiffed muscles all over my body, neck, cramped legs (for sitting too long), exhaustion, hunger (since I had not eaten anything that day), dizziness, the first place Ah Khai brought me to visit was the General Hospital! .............-_-
Nah, things were not that bad as you might be imagining~! I wasn't admitted to the hospital or something. We went there to visit someone. That's all.

As for dinner that night, I had:
Green Nasi Kerabu, BBQ Chicken Drumstick, Rojak, Char Kuey Teow, Logan Juice, ...
Went to the Noodle Station for a lim teh session an hour later with Ah Khai, Ah Long (another coursemate) and their friend.
With all that delicious food I swallowed, my marginal utility for that night was overflowed! Hahaha!!!

A Simple Introduction


I was born on 27th August 1985 in Sibu, Sarawak. Which means that I was born in the year of OX. I am a Hakka (and my blood is most likely being polluted with Foochow blood judging from the place I came from). I just turned 21 last month. Being the eldest in the family, I am the most rebellious kid (including now) in the family history.

I attended Rejang Park Kindergarten at the age of 5, SRK (then SRB) Saint Rita at 7, SMK Saint Elizabeth till Form Five and SMK Sacred Heart for my Form Six. I am currently being lelong all the way up north to Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) in Sintok, Kedah Darul Aman doing my Bachelor's Degree in Risk Management and Insurance with Honours. I am in my second year now.

You might be guessing that I am knowledgable about insurance inside out and upside down but hey, I know no nuts about that certain topic except that I woke up from my daydreams whenever the lecturers say "Okay, we stop here first. We'll continue in our next lesson" and I know that it's time for lunch! Well, since I'm so far away from the nearest reachable civilization, I spend most of my time in Friendster updating my blog from time to time. I should start to blog here long ago but don't know why now I just started.

Apart from being rebellious, I love to criticize! Either constructive or destructive criticism could befall anybody, eg. from the person sitting at the next table eating Kampua, lecturers, the good-looking guy at my residential college with screwed attitude, the best friend who is so far away, the girl who loves to bitch around selling herself and her dignity, the cat with sleeping pattern, racial discrimination (I admit I'm a bit racist - who isn't?), exotic food I've tasted, how to make more money (can ask me if you want), current gossips, etc...but celebrity gossips are none of my business! Zilch!

I am a health-conscious person (only recently) even though I love to EAT! I eat almost anything. Especially those exotic food that can be found in Sarawak eg. wild boar, deer meat, crocodile meat, rabbit, bat, frog, sagu worms, snake, etc...I've tried the grasshopper and the butterfly (before the fellow become butterfly-I forgot what it's called) in Hatyai, Thailand.

Speaking of which, I love travelling as well as adventure. I've been to places around Malaysia for the past 1 year. Even thought the travelling actually burnt my pocket, I enjoyed myself very much. Besides, the experience was priceless.

I live in Sibu, Sarawak. Some ignorant people may never heard of that place before. Well, 'coz we live on trees and hunt wildboars for food. We wear nothing but the red loincloths like the pictures they put in the travel brochures. The vegetarians are even more kesian...they eat tree barks, leaves, grass, kulat, lumut, anything green!

Well, that's about all that I have to say about myself. You can ask me personally if you want to know more. I'm reachable at clarenic19@yahoo.com, same address for Friendster, MSN: clarenicng@hotmail.com

This is, then, my official blog-site.

And this is ME!
