silence my love
Tammie says Smile!
Hello there, Stranger!
Welcome to my humble little blog.
The name's Tammie, but friends call me Tam (not 'thumb').
Who am I, you ask?
I'm not that smart top-scorer girl in your class.
I'm not that pretty lass you always see on the streets either.
I am passionate, stubborn and emotional.
My absolute most favorite thing to do is hanging out with people I care & love.
My passion burns for Jesus & photography.
I wish to travel more and see more.
This blog was created so I get to jot down my feelings.
Happenings in life.
That is, if I'm not too lazy to update ;)

Day 3 of Home QuarantineI'm editing my layout. I'm rotting at home.
So I resort to trying to fix my classic html layout I've been working on lately.
I can NEVER get the comment part right.
I can change layout colours, I can add new coloums but not the comment part.
Which is freaking vital to me.
That's why I'm still using this (Mary & lamb) layout now.
SO someone, anyone, please, if you are reading this lame post- and if you understand classic layouts- TEACH me O Great One.
I seek your guidance on how to fix my comment tag.
<-- been reading too much Eragon
Chii, no need to feel bad (I hope you don't feel bad) you're busy and I understand :)

Day 2 of Home Quarantine
I've decided to blog down everyday of my quarentine life for this whole week.
Thanks to inspiration from Robinson Crusoe.
I realize I will probably bore some of you to bits but I think it's a good way to get over my boredom.
I've spent a good deal of my time since being quarentine, reading Eragon.
Yeah I know, I'm suppose to be reading any books but this.
It's not STPM related.
Somehow, this novel struck me as impressive.
It's even more impressive that a 15 year old boy- at that time- wrote it.
What's even more impressive is that this boy, or should I say man, is kindda cute XD
Jocelyn where are you?
Is this guy cute or what?
Okayy.. boredom kills.
I'm trying to keep myself sane by indulging in Christopher
Not him. rofl.
In another unrelated to
that means I'll have to spend the rest of my holiday with brother at home. Oh joy.
This flu is getting more and more serious.
There's news that a person died from it today.That'll mark the 1st death case in Melacca.
I hope everyone try not to go out that often and stay healthy. Please.
I can't afford to lose any firends, alright :(

I hate having to stay away from internet for so long.
So much updates from friends I cannot read and so much I wanna update.
But here I am now - blogging :D
For some serious updates, my wish came true (OMG!)
School's close for a whole week.
And I'm stuck at home for no good reason! They (athorities) quarentined us after our school has students who was suspected to have caught the H1N1 flu.
7.30am that morning
A friend came up saying "Have you guys heard? There's 4 students suspeted with H1N1."
we all went "ZOMGG!" and started bombarding him with questions.
somewhere around 11.30 am
An announcement was made asking every student not to leave the classroom, not even after the school bell rings.
You can bacially hear every class going "Awwwwww...." followed by "Noooo..."
around 1pm (I think)
another announcement was made to make sure no students try to go back. They said they'll be a talk on H1N1.
I didn't stay back long though. My mum came so I had to go. But as I was walking out to school gate, I can see the whole school was in a havoc (sort of).
Studnets everywhere..students from morning sessions and evening session are mixed up.. Teachers can be seen wearing mask.
To me they either look like: A. Denstis B. Surgeon or C. Terriorist
I'm not allowed to go for tuition.
my Sir blocked us from attending tuition, until after 1 whole week.
I'm not allowed to go watch movie.
my friend warned us that if we get caught, it's bye-bye RM5000.
I'm not allowed to go anywhere for that matter.
All I can say is thank God for internet!!XD
I tried going in Nuffnang today and hello hello
I'm sure I'm not the only one facing this right? What is going on?
I basically don't understand what they wrote there.
Speak in English if you want me to understand.
Well, if you have any idea why I can go in Nuffnang, please tell. Thank you.

It's amazing how much funny labels we can find around us.
I saw this cute lil pink skirt of my sister.
such a sweet lookin' skirt
So I took the skirt for a better look. Nice fabric, nice cutting..
Then I checked to see which brand is this skirt from
and I couldn't stop LOL-ing at what I saw
*Keep Away From Fire*
Who in their right mind would put their clothes anywhere near fire?
The other day, I going through my brother's things and spot this Brylcream tube
and the instructions are funny, if not creative
"Better things to do then read boring instructions? Put it on your hair, style it, go out! Effortlessly Cool."
Brlycream assume their clients are too cool to read.
Like, I'm too sexy for my hair gel?
I searched for more funny labels online and I got these:
Apple Cider Vinegar
'With the Mother'
It's definately a man that wrote the lable.
but still, it's funny XD
"They didn't fit."
Ahh.. that's enough laughing for one day.
til the next post, cheers!

It feels good to be over someone.
It's like being free from a prision.
To stop liking someone isn't the easiest thing..
but it's still possible.
How sure am I?
well, found out today that you're in a relationship and I felt nothing.
No pang of sadness, no regrats, no jealousy.
In fact I felt that you deserved all that.
I'm no longer a emotion slave.
And let me tell you
it feels M.A.R.V.E.L.O.U.S
Who wanna celebrate? XD

Shop til You Drop
Malaka is facing the yearly shopping fever now as
It's Jusco. Their having their annual J card day.
And since Malaccans have nothing to do- always stay at home, go to work, then come back home again- we are invading Jasco at full force.
Of course, our shopping fever is nothing compared to our state sisters in KL and Selangor.
But for a state that has only 1,650 km² (compare to KL's 243.65 km² or Selangor's 7,956 km²) of land, our shopping spirit is impressive.
I have a *Malaccan* friend who told me her sister took a entire day off from work, just to join Jusco's J card day.
She reached Jusco at 7am that morning and returned at 3pm (again this is nothing compared to some crazy shppoers who can list out 1,000 reasons to come home after 12am- yes, from shopping)
I regrated not taking a picture (didn't take camera with me) of how the traffic looks like on my way back from tuition today.
Anyway back to topic. Malacca is a small state, mind you, with a population of only 7333,000 people.
But in spite of this, Malacca manage to house roughly about 7 shopping complex in her tiny body.
Tesco, Jusco, Melaka Mall, Dataran Pahlawan, Makotah, Giant, Bintang.. oh and the latest addition- MyDin.
I'm not disapproving Malacca form building up anymore shopping complexes but it is getting kind of annyoing watching each companies fighting over costomers.
They've came up with ridiclouse advertisments that look like they have mentailty of 9 and 10 year olds, fighting for parent's love.
The Cold Storage Vs Tesco Ad
The Giant Vs Tesco Ad
The Giant Vs Tesco Ad *again*
Eventhough I'm not into advertisment, even I know better then to make lame advertising like they did.
Never make it too obvious who your competitions are.
It just makes your own componey look pethatic to your would-be costermers. Putting them off.
So all in all, I'd say that Malaccans rock when it comes to shopping.
Or should I just say Malaysians in general..?

The glass bottle incident
See this bottle?
It's a glass bottle.
Karnee intorduced me to this drink - it's Ribena sparkling juice! and it tates better then wine.. (for me lar)
The original look of Ribena sparkling juice
I stiped off the plastic wrapper around the bottle cuz I thought it'd look really nice as a glass bottle.
We sldom see drinks being sold in glass bottles nowadays right? That's why I kept this Ribina Karnee gave me.
My mum filed it up with drinking water and left it on the table.
I was in the middle of doing revision yesterday when my 7 year old sister saw the glass bottle and being a nosy girl,
she askd me 'Jie, what's that?'
I jokingly answerd 'Why? It's Beer.'
She may not know what colour beer is but she sure knows what beer is.
So she looked at me in amazement.
She couldn't take her eyes of the glass bottle for the next 15 minutes.
At last she asked 'Can I try?'
*I've warned her a 1000000 & 10 times not to touch my things so she's smart enough to ask me..hehe*
I wanted to do something fun so I said ' Okay, you do me a favor then I let you drink'
After doing me a favour, I let her have a drink of plain water.
The first thing she said after finding out she was tricked was 'IT'S WATER!!'
(Very smart girl..! That's why mom warned us never to take sweets from stranger when you are so easily tricked, even from your own sister.)
But that's not the end of this story.
Apparently, my sister was so amused that I manage to pull her leg that she took the bottle outside and the next think I heard was a cheeky voice shouting
'Hey *Elmer look! I'm drinking BEER!!'
*Elmer is my sister's friend.
My mum heard all of this and she turned to me and said
'Very smart la.. Teach you sister nonsense somemore.'
It occured to me later that some of the neighbours are outside. Especially Elmer's mother.
Lesson of the day: NEVER joke with your sister about beer.
Thank you Rachel. For making my life more
I *heart* you.

the crazy things we did
Imma so excited for August to come.
it's because my cousin is gonna come back from Scotland! Woot~
and he says he's got me CHOCOLATES! *OMGOMGOMGOMG!!*
and perfume *dance*
gosh. I have the best cousins ever XD
I've kinda lost contact with Ben(<- cousin) since he went Scotland.
But I manage to catch him on msn yesterday and he told me about coming back this Aug.
I got him to read my blog and he went "How come you didn't update your blog?" at me on msn today.
Fine, so I'm gonna update it today and it's gonna be about YOU and me and the crazy things we did when we were kids XD
Ben is probably at some
Drinking beer and wearing kilts. Speaking in broken Scottish.
*shhh* I promised not to tell his mom (my aunt) this XD
So since Ben's not here now, I'll tell you guys about the crazy things we -well, mainly Ben- did.
I remembered there's once when I was 3 and Ben 7. We were eating chocolates happily at his home when his mom said "Let's go out shopping!"
Ben and I looked at each other in horror.
We were in the middle of eating chocolates!!
How can we stop and go shopping now?
So after some deep thinking on how to smuggle the chocolates out of the house.
Then Ben came up with a brilliant idea. He taught me to tuck the chocolate bar in my pants.
Here's how it looks like:
You know.. when were are kids we do stupid things and yet don't feel so stupid doing it.
(DISCLAMIER: THIS IS NOT MY TUMMY!! lol)
So we felt so smart and glad we found a way to smuggle chocolates to shopping malls without the grown ups knowing.
I can feel the chocolate bar pressing on my tummy. Gooey, soft and creamy. LOL.
But I didn't dare to take a look at how my chocolate is doing until we reached the shopping complex.
Me and Ben decided to open up our shirts to see our chocolates and SURPRISE~!
We saw a huge mess of chocolate on our tummies!
and that's not the gross part.
The gross part was we manage to lick up every single drop of chocolate on our tummies.
Yes, tell me if you still want to be my friend after this XD

Dead LappieFinally, I got to go online after 3 days of not being able to..
at grandma's house basking myself in the glory of the internet world now.
Mum's laptop kena virus. It was so bad. I don't think anyone can revive it.
Lappie is dead now. It was a faithful laptop. But it's time is up.
RIP, Lappie.I'm trying to get my mum to buy a desktop cuz their shelf life are longer then lappies
You served well.
I shall give you a moment of silence.
*after a moment*
and I'm hopping get my own lappie once I enter U.
That's the plan. <--- * recover so fast.Unfaithful girl.*
I suddenly realized that my internet deprivation has gotten into my brain, damaging some brain cells.. becuase I'm paying respect to a laptop.
I have no life.
Dang. I got to get myself out of this silliness.
But I'm not the only one right.. *wink* you know who you are XD

Packages. A girl's dilemma.A girl simply cannot balance study and beauty at the same time.
It's like impossible to keep up with both. Both requires time + patience + understanding.
If we pay a little more attention to beauty, we find ourselves doing poorly in tests and exams.
If we turn around and pay more attention to our studies, we find pimples & zits poppin' out of every corner of our faces.
I have a theory, that girls look 5 times more terrible then they usually do, when they are in the middle of an exam period.
Next time you find yourself back in school again, take a look.
It's like a package.
The Studies Package comes with pimples, eye bags, dark eye circles and possibly even hair lost but perfect scores of A'ssss.
The Beauty Package on the other hand, comes with not enough time to finish your homework/assignments which will result in falling behind in classes, the inability to answer questions in tests/exams which in the end results in failing certain subjects. But because you sacrifice your time for beauty, you get a wonderfully smooth skin, and beautiful clear eyes.
It's unfair T_T
Why can't we excel in both??
But then again, unfairness is Life's middle name.
So suck it up, Tam!

Fun little brainteasers
I did a left hander research few days ago since I was blogging about it.
I ended up finding these pictures:
Picture no 1.
Let's see if you can see what this picture is
So tell me, what did you see?
*answer at the bottom*
Picture no 2.
What do you see in this picture?
If you can see a white triangle - the one with its apex pointing up - it's because your left-handed brain (right brain) has created that triangle to unify what is otherwise simply a collection of angles and PacMan shapes.
Lefties are able to see the white triangle the first thing when they see this picture.
Right handers may also see this triangle, but it'll take awhile for them to see it.
The answer to the first picture is of a dog drinking from a stream, with its head in the middle of the picture facing down to the water and its tail off to the right.
Of course, the image is only hodgepodge of disconnected shapes.
But put together, a lefty is able to connect all these shapes and form a picture.
Right handers can't make out much of this picture.
That's because our brain works differently.
A right hander's brain will break down a problem and solve it step by step.
A left hander' brain on the other hand, will solve a problem by whole.
Meaning, they see a problem and solve it as a big picture. No steps by steps.
That also explains why right handers can't see the 1st picture.
They try to break down the image one by one but can't connect it together.
Lefties have a holistic kind of thinking, so they can make out a little of that picture.
When I first saw the 1st picture, I was blured as well but I can make out a dog and some trees the the top left corner. It turns out I was only correct about the dog part. Can't see no stream tho.
As for the 2nd picture, the imaginary white triangle just stands out once I see it. It's far more dominate then the black-lined triangle below, for me. The white triangle is like sticking out whenever I see this picture.
I also want to make a correction. I gave the wrong information in this post.
Apparently, lefties aren't good at maths. Because of that holistic thinking thing again.
I'm not blaming my disabled maths brain on this but still...... haha.. it's pretty obvious that left handers suck in maths. Me and my brother are living proofs.

Happiness comes in packets!
Surprise with chocolate, made Happy by chocolate, In Love with chocolate
Whoever said we can't buy happiness is so wrong.
Happiness is found in packets that looked like this:
So you get what I mean.
Happiness is for sale.
(psssst.. these wonderful happiness costs less then RM10 each)
They just turn into fats and go straight into your tight/cheek/tummy/arm area.
Happiness comes in all shapes and sizes.
There's the long ones
With creamy cream inside, omgggg~!
Take a bite!
there's the round ones + bear head shaped ones
and of course there's the tear drop shaped one.
I was eating Kisses one day
when I made this,
'cause I realized that the phase 'Hershey's Kisses' could be made into a sentence.
and the golden heart is made from the kisses aluminum wrapper.
I know, I've nothing better to do @.@
Anyway what I want to say is, Happiness is all around us.
All we have to do is go to the nearest 7-eleven, fish out some cash
and there you go.. happiness in the palm of your hands.
You're right, I'm crapping.
You don't get happy eating chocolate. That's what your brain tells you.
But in all seriousness, the milk in chocolate gives you pimples, and add kilos in your weight.
So think before indulging in chocolates.
The person who said Happiness can't be bought is right I guess :)

Lefties aren't dummies
I caught my mum trying to convert my sister to a right hander yesterday.
That's discrimination, I tell you.
I was utterly offended.
(I know I've got excess emotions until I even care if my mum is making my sis write with her right hand.)
Hoi. Left handers are left handers. You can't make them change hands.
Do you know that left or right handedness is controlled by genes?
I used to think it was because of environmental factors that makes a person want to use left or right hand to write.
My parents said I used my left hand the first time I grab a pencil.
Many people would go "Oh your daughter is a left hander?" though it sounds like they were saying "Oh your daughter just came out of prison?"
In the same tone.
The same you-know-what-I-mean voice behind that question.
Heck, it's not even like a question, it's more of an accusation.
I may be a small girl then, but I can still sense meanness when I hear it.
What the heck is wrong with being a left hander??
The more these people look down on lefties, the more I'm proud of being one.
We are unique.
According to Wikipedia, lefties only make up of 7-10% of the world's population
We are survivors.
They used to persecute left handers in the olden days. They used to FORCE lefties change their writing hands to right hand. I have a aunt who was forced to use her right hand.
Basically, the whole world is against us. Humans, right handed humans invent right-handed guns, cameras, scissors, knife and chairs for everyone.
But conveniently forgetting the 7-10% of people who are lefties.
We struggle to adapt to these.
Yeah, this is my worst enemy.
You can bet the person who invented this was an ignorant right-hander.
*Thanks for making my life in school a really tough time, I thoroughly enjoyed leaving my left hand to dangle in mid air whenever I have to write*
Lefties are know for their creativity in arts and music. Some even say maths but I suck in maths.
In case you didn't notice, his guitar is costume made to fit a left hander.
Cuz LeeHom's one of those amazing lefties XP
Of course, I am grateful that discrimination towards lefties are a lot lesser now compared to centuries ago. But still.......... why la all the right-handed inventions??
If you guys are going to invent something, please be considerate.
Sorry about the rant. I feel much better now :)
P/S: I text messages faster with my left hand. I feel so cacated using my right hand to text.

Wonderful way to start of a morning
We did the craziest Bio experiment yesterday.
I repeat. CRAZIEST. And maybe even gross.
Guess what we need to do?
Maybe some of you had done it before. But it totally made my hair curl when I heard what we had to do.
We're told to produce silva.
Oh that's a piece of cake. I thought. No problem-O.
But my expression went like this
when I heard that we had to donate at least 10 ml of it.
10 ml of SILVA??
You've got to be kidding me!
Yes. The gooey, sticky, bubbly liquid in your mouth.
The same liquid that you'd want to share with anyone except when kissing.
The same liquid that will make us wipe viciously away, when someone accidently let some of their holy water fall on your face.
And that's AT LEAST (our teacher made sure we understand, she kept repeating AT LEAST, AT LEAST!)
You're welcome to salivate more then 10 ml into that cute lil beaker :)
10 ml is also equal to 2 teaspoon. Okay, that's not so bad, I thought.
But it's weird how our body functions.
The more you make yourself salivate, it seems that we produce lesser silva.
I knew I can't do this. Not 10 ml at a snap of your fingers.
I made my lab partner do it.
So I was happy that tough part was over.
But no it wasn't...
I forgot about the part where I had to look at the 10ml (or more) sliver on the lab table.
Oh the liquid inside that cute beaker was staring straight back at me. I felt great >.>
P/S: You know, I can stand tiny spray of silva(s). A drop of silva. And even a huge splatter of silva.
BUT... 2 teaspoons of silva.. in a beaker.. staring back at you.. it gives me goosebumps.
P/S/S: I can still eat after that episode. I must have some super powers. So does all of my classmates :D

First H1N1 case in Malacca..?
People all over the world is worried sick about this relative new pandemic.
The H1N1 flu.
and as if that's not intimidating enough...
I just learnt that I'm living in the same taman as the girl who just came back from UK for a swimming competition.
She is also the same person who was warded to the Malacca GH for suspicion of being a victim of the infamous H1N1 flu.
I'm actually pretty calm when I hear that we have a suspected case of H1N1 in Malacca.
I didn't even scream. Well, secretly I was hoping to be the first one to catch H1N1. Imagine the 3 minutes of fame I'll get *_* Okay~! I kidding!!!
I am not as worried as my classmates who immediately cover their mouths with their ties and backed 5 meters away from me, like I'm some sick person capable of spreading my infectious disease, upon hearing I live in the same taman as the girl. (Haha okay I was exaggerating. But you can see fear in some of their eyes.)
I certainly don't have that panicky feeling towards this sickness... yet.
Our Health Minister is urging us to take precautions and not take H1N1 lightly.
On top of that, H1N1 is already rate 6 on World Health Organization scale.
But here I am, actually having the nerves to even fantasies about being the 1st person in Malacca to get H1N1.
What kind of sick person am I?
P/s: The girl who was warded is now well and declared free of the virus. So there goes my dream of skipping STPM. LOL.

One of a kind. Out in stores now.
This is what happends when you mix your white pants with other coloured clothings when all you wish to do is wash them.
You'd think that after 18 years, 1 month and 33 days of being alive, I'd be smarter then commit this fashion disaster.
Well, the only thing I can say now is, I'm so happy this isn't my favorite pair of pants! HA
Now I think I can probably take this pants to Africa, put it on, hide in the bushes and the tigers won't even notice me there!
Isn't that awesome?
Maybe the tigers will probably think I'm their cousin or something.
tiger print pants. so sexy.rawr.
or is it
tiger print pants. so Rosie Phua. yuck.
