split variable values into array

i have these values inside variable $blah

Code:
BUNGA TERATAI 3    5055     ITH      1     0     0     0     1     1
JADE TRADER    143W     ITH      4     0     0     0     4     4
MOL SPLENDOR   0307A     ITH      3     0     0     0     3     3

so how do I split them into array with the new line as the delimiter?
