Bilingual, Trilingual or Multilingual?

07:16



It was a jaw dropping moment when I saw this video. It hits me when this boy can speak 20 languages while I'm struggling in balancing my two languages. Besides, being surrounded by multi-linguals is depressing too. It does motivate me but somehow at the same time it does demotivate me.



Vivien, a multilingual who speak English, Malay, Mandarin, Hokkien, Iban, Limbawang and a few more languages which I forgot but the last time I checked she can speak 8 different languages.

Vishin, an Indian boy who master Tamil, English, Malay, Mandarin and Cantonese.

Nita, a Malay girl who can teach Mandarin besides her good proficiency in Malay and English.

Rinna, an Indian girl who is a bit different. She speaks English most of the time and she can speak Malay with clear pronunciation. She is also good in Mandarin but she doesn't speak Tamil much.

Chuin, although she does speak English all the time but she will surprise you with her ability to write in Malay. Since she is a Chinese, she does speak Hokkien and Mandarin too.

and the list of multi-lingual friends goes on. 





When my friends acquire more than two languages, my lecturer is still correcting my pronunciation and I always discover my intolerable bad grammatical errors. Sometime, I feel like I don't want to tweet at all since I always spot grammatical errors in my tweets. It does bug me, why my grammar is sucks nowadays?

Is it because of lacks of reading?
Is it because less movie marathon?
Is it because of too much exposure towards Manglish?





Yuna?

15:00

I went to a camp last week. It's normal to get to know to new people including the people from the same university. So there was this one guy from sport science course. He asked me, "Does TESL student always dress up like this?"

I was aware that I wasn't dress up at all.

The thing that made him asked that question was, this one cloth on my head which was pashmina. That was one situation. The second situation was, when I was in English Language 4 class. In this class we mix with people from other faculties. 

I was concentrating on my work book but I heard someone was calling a person with name Yuna. "Yuna! Yuna!"


I ignored them since it wasn't me but then I looked at my lecturer.  She told me that the guy behind me was calling me. I turned my back. He just wanted to pass the attendance list. That's not my main concern but people tend to label me fashionable since I always wear pashmina.

They don't know that this girl who loves to don pashmina is the laziest person alive!

Pashmina is the easiest head cover to be worn. Why?


  1. You don't have to iron it.
  2. You can reuse it for more than two times in a week but I usually wash mine after a single use.
  3. You need less than 2 minutes to complete your look.

Guidelines Towards Signs

Eheh! These are not originally from me, since you know, I never involved with guys. Actually, I watched a movie this evening, the title was He's Is Just Not That Into You. It was a good movie since it somehow "educated" me to not easily get swooned by guys. Sincerely, I am the type that can get attached easily. My bad.

But,

Since I learnt the lessons, I will be more careful. So girls! We are actually were programmed wrongly. We believe that if a guy acts like a total jerk that means he likes you. This is totally not true! If he acts jerk, then he is a jerk. Period.

  1. If a guy is giving you his phone number instead of taking yours, he is not interested.
  2. If a guy doesn't call you, he doesn't want to call you.
  3. If a guy wants to see you, believe me he will see you
  4. If a guy treating you like he doesn't give a shit, he is genuinely doesn't give a shit. No exception.


Got it?





Random thought: Strangers

21:28




These pictures were taken two years ago. The day before the last paper of PASUM. We "studied" English at Mc Donald since the last paper of PASUM was English 2. Glad that the authorities decided to have English as the last paper because right after all of the science subjects paper ended, we hung out.

Randomly, I posted this photo since it has been a week since my last post. I cannot abandon you dear blog, you have been with me since I was 14 years old. I'm growing up with you. From the very basic English entry and till now, I'm sure I have improved a lot.

One of the reason why I blog was because I wanted to improve my English proficiency especially the writing part since right now I seldomly write an essay and I can see the impact when I'm doing my assignments. Among the four skills that are always tested which are Speaking, Reading, Listening and Writing, writing is the worst skill that I can handle.

Although there are less people reading my blog nowadays, (since I don't do the automatic synchronization post on my Facebook anymore) but I still love you dear blog. Why I did that? Because I find out that there are too many strangers on my Facebook. I'm okay if strangers who are bloggers or someone who loves to blogwalking come from anywhere to read my blog but if you are on my friend list and you are strangers in real life, I am  a bit uncomfortable with that.

Why?

Because, I hate being judged.
