tongue twister - which is harder?

Was reading through some tongue twister on the web was wondering which is harder... here's a few... Try it yourself... test yourself how far can you go without making any mistakes or getting confused... (do take note of pronunciation and phrasing) Have fun!!! ^^V

first... school basics to get started to warm up...

If two witches were watching two wristwatches,
which witch would watch which wristwatch?

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
How many pecks of pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick?
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

What do you want? Fresh fried fish? Fish fried fresh? Fried fresh fish? Fresh fish fried?


How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
A woodchuck would chuck no wood since a woodchuck can't chuck wood.
But if a woodchuck could chuck wood and if a woodchuck would chuck wood,
how much wood would a woodchuck chuck?
If a woodchuck could chuck wood and if a woodchuck would chuck wood,
should a woodchuck chuck wood?
A woodchuck should chuck wood as long as a woodchuck could chuck wood and as long as a woodchuck would chuck wood.
A woodchuck would chuck as much wood as it could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.


She sells sea shells by the seashore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I'm sure she sells seashore shells.

Now try the finale... if you can pronounce this sentence clearly and understandable nothing could trouble you in English. haha...

The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick.

Now I'm wondering if this was our aural examination in UPSR, PMR, SPM or SPTM or any other English examination... I would say a majority would actually fail... After the last sentence I'm already tongue tied!!! :P LOL

some dumbass... ignorant racist

I am very offended, displeased and angry at this person sbh.fm(ahsoy) on friendster.

This person randomly message me trying to be friends and this is the content I get for the 1st message


kalu la kite bole berkenalan kan best....tapi memang x bole bab org cina mana mau berkwn selain cina .....tk bye

translation in English:-


wouldn't it be great if we could get to know each other... BUT Cannot because CHINESE PEOPLE WOULDN'T WANT TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH OTHER RACES BESIDES THEIR OWN KIN... take care bye.

Now ...

No 1: If you want to be get to know someone don't judge or assume what they are.

No 2: Telling People indirectly that they are a racist even though you don't know them at all? WHO ARE YOU TO SAY?

No. 3: Just because one person who is a Chinese behaves like that doesn't mean that entire race is like that! [at this rate sbh.fm(ahsoy) the your acting out I don't blame those people not wanting to be your friend!]

So I gave sbh.fm(ahsoy) a piece of my mind

time in life

My childhood friend, Wai Mun came back today from her uni for study break. So I decided to pay her a visit after dinner. By the way her house is just beneath my apartment. Her mom was my baby sitter and I grew up with her and her cousin Wai Ping. 10 months ago I received news that her cousin Wai Ping is getting married and today she tells me that Wai Ping is giving birth to a baby boy by the end of the month. I wonder how time flies. *having flashbacks*

Even mom told me that its was just yesterday that she saw 'us' girls running around, screaming and playing; today she gets good news that Wai Ping is going to deliver a baby boy soon.

All of a sudden, I just got a random thoughts.

What actually have we done and achieved all these years?

When did we actually grow up?

What did we grow into?

With so much to do in our lives time just slipped passed us silently.

Did we actually make full use of time?

Looking back through my life, I'm proud to say that I did achieve something everyday of my life and still am. Thanks to my mom, she gave me all the opportunities and thought me to seek life; to learn and experience life in every manner. Good or Bad it serves as a lesson. Every moment counts.

last solo performance

I just completed my final solo performance assessment on the piano.
I ended it with Chopin's Prelude in E minor.
It's a very solemn song.
I did great with it. Very proud of myself.
Finally I performed all the way through without stopping and being a nervous wreck on stage and NO Humiliation.

I have always been afraid to perform solo on the piano.
And, somehow 5 out of 7 performances things just went wrong.
No. 5 was the worst... I broke down on stage.
But Today...finally... all the hard work
I ended my last solo performance in uni with big smile on my face!

So What Kind of Mentality Is This?

Ignorance or Stupidity?

Inspiration struck....

past month I was going on and off on a music piece that I was composing.... I just couldn't make it right...

So last sunday I said to myself "that's it anne marie! your going to stop waiting for ideas to arrange this piece of music. you can't do anything about it!"

And I took a crazy bold risk I started a new piece of music... came up with the melody in on monday and on tuesday I did the arrangements. Wednesday present it to my supervisor. [yea i know its like signing my own death sentence, right?]

I'm very happy with the arrangement and it was what I wanted!
my supervisor (professor) is happy with it too... ^^

Now on with the other 3 original pieces...

courage to be criticized

A lesson learned today:

As Eleanor Roosevelt said:

"Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be dammed if you do, and dammed if you don't."

At times someone just has to be the one to be dammed by others.
But when look upon the situation again he/she has just done a great deed for others and for themselves.

People who are courageous enough to take that step forward;
To Speak Up for what is Right and True has just made a difference in life.

the race of life...

- thought for the day - the race of life -

"Don't Run Because You Want To Get To Your Destination Faster.

But Keep Running Because You Want To Be Better."

sarcasm from a newspaper man

Got up early this morning to go and buy newspaper from the stall with mom then go have breakfast at the kopitiam.

So we approach the newspaper man (he recently got rich)

mom asked him: "You don't like me giving you coins for the newspaper, is it?"
(my neighbour told us that the man complains of us giving him RM 2.50 coins)

newspaper-man says: "You know I find it very FUNNY you give me coins all the time!" (with a sarcastic look on his face)

Mom and I was stunned and don't know what to say. (we are thinking what is so funny about giving coins???!!! It is money, Right???)
He's like looking at us up and down like we got our money from begging or picking it up from the street.

So Mom said: "You don't want coins never mind, I give you paper money loh." (mom pulled a bunch of money from her pocket and payed)

Then an auntie came by and said: "Wah...!! give you coins also you don't want ah??? If it was me I'll happily accept it mah... IT'S MONEY!"

Newspaper man said: "If like that don't buy newspaper from me la!!!"

Mom said: "Ok loh..."

Newspaper man said: "Make sure you keep your word!"

Mom said: "Don't worry..."

(He doesn't know my mom once she says something she means it)

So the newspaper man lost a customer today and by the looks of the other auntie she wouldn't want to buy from him also. (he's not the only one who sells newspaper at the area)

(literal translation means the "Nut forgot its shell")...
it doesn't mean you have extra coins in your pocket you can forget that you are actually standing on the ground.

Today he lost a customer for life and a friend too...
And with his attitude He's going to lose a lot more and soon his pockets are going to be empty.

Just because a person dresses shabby and comes with coins and money wrapped in a plastic bag doesn't mean the person is a beggar. People just want to be simple and live under the radar.

a place for us all... Malaysia... if only...

nowadays everything is about race...
wish Malaysia would portray once again what we actually advertise

This is what the advert says...

Because when I first open my eyes the first thing I saw was you.
Because inspite of all our differences; inside we are the same.
Because even though our clothes are the most colorful in the world our children are coloured blind.
Because if we strive we could be our best when times are at their worst.
Because of all these I believe there's a place for us all in this land;
- My Friend.

innocence makes things simplest in life

I was just browsing through youtube and I came by last years Petronas Independence Day advert directed by Yasmin Ahmad.

The title is Percintaan Tan Hong Ming.

charity race

Its the 2nd day of Raya and the church did a charity race for the church building fund.

The event started at 7am for registration. Then the race started about 8am. Mom and me entered just for fun. Mom was in the ladies veteran (4km) category and I was in the ladies open (6km) category. The event was at the Tasik Permaisuri.

= beautiful morning to have the race =

I haven't been there in ages and it has changed a lot. It was like a weekend family resort. Pretty good environment for outdoor activities. The trail was tough. As there was like 45 degree hills to get through. It wasn't just around the lake but it went on Up Hills and into forrest and valleys as well. Really good for cardio training. I had no idea my church members was so fit and healthy. LOL.

Anyways, a pretty good number of church members turn up. Even the priest joined in for the race. Mom won the silver medal for ladies veteran (4km) category and I won the bronze medal for ladies open (6km).

= the bronze and silver medals =

= What a mother and daughter pair we make ^^V =

= anne mary (gold medal) and anne marie =

= brother david (silver medal for men's veteran 4km) and me =
