Pu3's 1st vlog - My Speech Problem

I have trouble trying to speak clearly since I was a kid. 
 Possibly its due to my overcrowded crooked teeth that makes me harder to pronounce properly (note that I have a great phobia for dentist that stopped me from wearing braces when i was 13)
.. or maybe I am just plain lazy. 
I thought I should have gone for speech therapy when I was young = =
But I didnt have trouble talking out loud in public all my life until recently since I got into Uni in a foreign country
Okay okay, I still talk a lot, but not in class ok! 
Somehow I have lost my confidence to speak up in class  (where im the only one asian there). 
I stuttered everytime I tried to talk - which was super annoying cause my course mates couldn't understand what I was trying to say.

So I thought having a video diary would help me improve my speech. 

My Vlog 
(I have no intension to post this up in public at 1st actually)

I apologize for changing my voice all the time (= =') but I don't like hearing my own voice lol..secondly, it's my 1st time playing around with the clip adjustments in iMovie 11 :P
  Funny thing is I didn't plan to put any accent, but it somehow automatically switched on everytime I tried to say it out loud and clear. 

What I'm actually disappointed about myself about is... how my english speaking is getting worst over the years.
I listened to my old cassette diary recorded when I was in primary 6 (yes, I used to record my daily activity using a walkman too!).. and I'm seriously shocked to know that I sounded better back then! 

When I was a kid, one of my dreams was to be a reporter ToT
Now, I can't even speak properly in front of a recording camera, I even lost for words easily and started saying nonsense... Not to mention, my front crooked teeth that will drive people crazy.
Daymn, Li'l Pu3 must be really disappointed to see me now.
No no! I should not let myself down!
Practice! Practice!

So Exhausted!

Here's the latest photo of me taken in Queen's Mother Library last night. 
Yea~... this semester sucks.

Jeri got his new ipad just a week ago, and I tried drawing on it (using Art Studio app). 
Even my drawings are.....

Setting that aside, 
I am currently addicted to one of Jeri's ipad games. 

Do you know Jubeat
It's a series of arcade music video games and it was somewhat new to me last summer when I went to Hongkong (photo below).
I don't remember seeing one in japan eventhough it was released 2 years ago.
So anyway, 
And I've been playing with it during my whole free time :P I mean come on, they even have Studio Ghibli's song! (Totoro♫ Totoro~)

Have you ever played Jubeat? Love it?

Moving on
The macaron I ordered from Macaronique (12 for 22pounds) arrived last night. ^^

The flavours are Madagascan Vanilla, Heavenly Dark Chocolate (my  fav)Rose & Lychee, Milk Chocolate & Passion Fruit, Simply Pistachio (good very good keluar janggut) and Piquant Lemon.

Aaahhh colourful macarons, you make me happy.

But it does still makes me wonder.. 
Why are macarons that expensive ah?

MIlan Part 2

1st of all,
 I would love to thank Jeri for the lovely roses he has given to me during v-day. 

I love flowers ^^ and I guess my favoarite would be the Sunflower (huh?). 
Jeri bought me roses because I told him that roses are romantic hohoho. 
Now the entire room smell like roses :) 

Okay moving on.
Let's continue the second part of Milan post!

So if you could remember, we were searching for a place to eat lunch that time. 

See during that time also, I was actually already traumatised by the forceful African dudes. The new place there was again, filled with them, this time, carrying books (they carried friendship bracelets in Duomo). Again a number of them approached us and so I ran away from them into a cafe, where we, ended up having our late lunch.

This was my lunch that day.

 ......But I didnt enjoy it = = 

After food, we walked around
Didn't take any good photos there. 
The weather was dull and freezing. And there were many of those crazy dudes around so I didn't want to take out my camera or I'll be their target point (= =) (arrgghhh I hate it!!!)

From the castle, we walked straight to Sempione Park that led us to the Arch of Peace.

The weather was such a mood killer that time. 
Fortunately, they sold delicious roasted chestnuts. 
And guess what?
That was our dinner :P

We walked straight back to our hostel after that - too tired to go for a proper dinner.
 That's the end of Day 1 in Milan.

To be continue...
