hiking at blackforest...

the most beautiful place and i felt as if i were in paradise, the different greens of the trees were juz so beautiful, indicating tat new life begins from now onwards... it was raining the whole day on friday n saturday n i nearly pull out of the hike for the fear of getting sick... it doesn't help when i woke up on sunday morning only to find out tat it was fogging outside, which was quite thick, but i went anyway... the trip was organized by the senior service of my uni and it is open to all international students, the group was really big, there were 30 international students from all over the world n 20 ppl from senior service... this is the first time i went hiking in germany and together wif so many ppl... we took a train and literally pack the whole train up... it was quite interesting to hear so many languages spoken at one time and in a train... ppl juz automatically strike a conversation like it is so normal, unlike in ehem class coughs wif hem germans... haha... and i was even amazed when i met a former malaysian student who works wif the uni branch now... we went like "malaysia!!!" n start talking bullet-train-malaysian-english... we also manage to converse in german wif the other member of senior services, although most of them were kind enough to explain more detailed stuff in english... i learn a lot about plants from them, i learn how to differentciate different fruit tress by the colour of the flowers and also by the shape of the tree bark... since coming to germany, i've grown a passion for plants here, esp since it's spring now n it is juz so inspring to see so many colours lighting the whole place up... we also manage to make friends wif other international students and to be able to understand jokes that they make is simply wonderful... for the first time i can actually join in the joke no matter how lame they are and laugh my head off...

now you might be wondering y this post is all words til now... n u might think that they might be photos posted up real soon... no, u r wrong!!!

because being a smarty pant *as always, i forgot to bring my camera!!!!!!!!!!!! n to make things worse, i even forgot to bring my handphone... seriously i feel like jumping down to every river tat i pass by n freeze myself to death or jump down from every slope tat i climb or knock my head agains all the beautiful trees... haih...

France...

the place which i've heard so much of but never actually been there and the place i nearly applied to instead of germany... well, from my point of view, i do think tat language is not a barrier there, so much for wat ppl say bout France, english actually can be accepted if u got the oriental looks... haha... here are some pics of Strasbourg, the capital of Europen Union... the architecture is totally mind blowing

p/s : it is juz 30 mins away from Offenburg...

This is love...

Easter holiday is just around the corner and easter is quite a big thing in Germany because of the religious background of this country but i guess many ppl dunno the reason behind easter anymore... now it's all about the bunnies n chocolates n colourful eggs...

although i might not be religious on the outside and i do not fast during lent, one thing i know... that thousands of years ago, love came n conquer sin, tat all who believe shall not perish n live eternally...

click here if u r wan to know wat easter means to me...

anyway, one question here... is easter meant to be celebrated? got ppl die wat... can celebrate meh? haha... typical chinese thinking...

happy or not happy?

"eh, u look very happy there hoh?" (there as in Germany lah)

tat is a question i found really hard to answer sometimes when ppl keep asking me over n over again... the problem is, it is really hard to see my unhappiness wif all the facebook pics circulating around... even during cny, when there r relatives visiting my house, my siblings will automatically click onto my facebook profile n show them my pics...(i famous mah, so ppl will ask about me naturally... ahaha) and of course, all the pics will depict happiness in a more visual way, which is more impacting... usually, the reaction wud be like "wah, so fun there, visit mercedes benz museum, go munich drink beer n eat pork leg, wah so nice..." of couse it wud be nice when u were treated like kings (queens) with all ur needs being taken care of... but that is only the first month, i repeat FIRST month ONLY in germany, then slowly n gradually, the excitement fades n confusion starts to seep in...

i wud be really n truly happy if -
i can understand whatever my lecturer taught in class
my lecturer can understand the questions that i try to ask in class
my classmates start talking to me
i dare to step out of my comfort zone
i manage to overcome the fear of both my german guy housemates
i can express myself freely without worrying bout vocabs n grammar mistakes
my allowance comes in april instead of may

those, u can't see in my facebook pics...

p/s : i lost count of how many times i edited this post... yer... so many grammar mistakes... it is bad enough wif my german, now my english... sigh
