December has been...

5 years of 'Against some or all odds'
The ride hasn't always been smooth or enjoyable but there's definitely something worth holding onto. This year's celebration is somewhat different but memorable. No flowers, no champagne, not even a little 'It's our anniversary' card.

Have we grown out of it? I hope not... we were actually too bogged down with some serious decision making that comes with a hefty price tag, a brand new home. As i've blogged about it previously, we were still deciding on which area we can somewhat imagine ourselves living in, and after days of countless calls, findings and viewing, we have decided that Indah Residence is for us.

So last weekend we brought my parents there to get their opinion and they liked it as much as we do, especially the gated and guarded compound. After spending some hours thinking and comparing, we finally decided that this is it for us.

No.7, the number of Perfection.

If all goes well (the renovation, furnishing and every single detail of making a home liveable) we should be moving in next June. Hubba and i are currently excited just looking for inspirations to design our home without burning a hole in our pocket. And i must add that calling up my mom's old friend to be our agent is probably the smartest thing i've ever done because he has been super duper helpful and efficient in getting our lawyer paper work as well bank loan options all lined up for us to choose. The 2nd smartest thing i've done is probably taking this whole week off to enjoy this whole home buying process.

On another note, here are also some recently accomplished X'mas DIYs for my lovely friends & coworkers. I've been planning them for the past few months as i didn't really want to do the last minute thing i always do every year! So this year i took the whole personalizing to another level by shopping in advance and designing little gift tags for the gifts!

I also slaved myself in the kitchen until 1.30am in the morning baking cupcakes and decorating them for our small little lunch party in the office. Flavor of the day - Orange Poppi Cupcakes with mint butter cream icing! I got rave reviews for it as it's not too sweet for 2nd and 3rd helping! ;)

Infact, i gotta sign off now to make a 2nd batch for some family friends. Here's wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year! XOXO...

Mission: House Hunt

So yeah, hubba and i are finally making plans to move out from our cozy little den to something landed because we needed the space for an impending family expansion. Hubba has also been deligently doing his homework online to find something that is within our budget and also working area. And after reading what Mr.Kok has to share from his finding, i thought i'd do a little review on mine too! :p

We actually went to check out a couple of developments but my personal favorite amongst all would be Indah Residence, Kemuning Utama by Paramount Homes and Topaz, Putra Heights by Sime Darby.

(Top) INDAH RESIDENCE (2,126 sq.ft) , Kemuning Utama by Paramount Homes (Lower) TOPAZ (2,100 sq.ft) , Putra Heights by Sime Darby

I haven't got any photos of the IR houses because we thought we could visit some showroom units to see the built up but the guards told us that all showroom units has been SOLD OUT and we will need to contact the agents to take us to the selling units for viewing. So we drove around the area somemore and saw a FOR SALE unit with an agents name and contact number ( Francis - 012-3739929 )

So i called the number to inquire the price of the unit that he was advertising for and proceeds to ask him if he have other units for us to choose from. He then said he has a few other units and the price is at RM430,000 onwards. So i asked him if it's possible to set a day for viewing the unit and he started to talk 'funny' and said:

"I actually brought someone there to look at the unit earlier, and the viewers wanted to negotiate the price... i mean if RM430,000 is not really your budget then i think it's really no point la~"

DIU&@^!&#@#* since when agents can talk to their customers like that?! I literally went WTF that very instance and blasted back at the motherfucker: "Yes, i asked you for the price FIRST right? And now i am asking you to take us there for viewing because i want to see what RM430,000 LOOKS like if i were to PAY for it right?!"

All i know is that he can kiss his business goodbye as we got another SUPER efficient and friendly agent to deal with right now, infact hubba and i have decided to let this agent sell our apartment too! And a last note to Francis: "Pick up some PR skills for goodness sakes!"

Okay, back to our house hunting again. We then proceeded to check out USJ Heights and ended up at Putra Heights instead. And our meandering drive led us to the discovery of Topaz & Amber houses by Sime Darby!

We found a unit with it's price listed online and are planning to get our agent source out more options for us. The workmanship of the houses are pretty good! And although it's a link house, we really like the amount of space around the area, the roads are wide and the back lane is of a good and comfortable distance. Fingers crossed that we will get a great deal from either sides soon! *excited*

A Long Winded Post

So what's me been up to during the month long disappearance?! I've been busy catching up with all the good & glorious things in life that coincidentally begins with the letter "F" - Friends, Family & FOOOOD!!! Will share some of my little discoveries with you and since i'm not some pro food blogger, forgive the personal, direct and point blank reviews!

Secret Recipe's
Apple Cheese Cake
*** Stars

Some Thai Restaurant @ Kepong
Thai Dishes
**** Stars

Gasoline @ Look Out Point

Kampar Claypot Rice @ D'sara Jaya

**** Stars
Verdict: Never been a fan of claypot but after tasting this i went back for the 2nd round the very next day only to be disappointed because they close on Weds!

Tony Roma's @ E-Curve
Ribs, Seafood & Steaks
***** Stars
Verdict: SUPER BIG ASS THUMBS UP!!! I'm so totally INLOVE with the Shitake Mushroom Beef Burger!!! It was huge and i actually finished the WHOLE thing myself because it was seriously YUMMY! Hubba ordered their ribs and was still mumbling on how great it tasted when we were going to sleep!

Yup, that's about it! Besides that, i finally got my other wisdom tooth extracted along with RM600 from my wallet *bleeding gums & pocket* I finally decided that i've been procrastinating long enough and that i'm gonna get this over and done with. Shockingly, the last i've checked, my first surgery was exactly a year ago!??! OMG... and i thought i only did it like a couple of months ago!? Anyways, this extraction is so unlike my first, everything about it spells P A I N !!! From the injection to the whole ordeal of drilling, sewing and post surgical pain. After 3 days now my right jaw is still sore as heck and the 5 course antibiotics is making me sick to the core! :(( Even my tooth is fugly that i couldn't show anyone without making anyone cringe and gag. Ah well... *switches to happy thoughts*

Over lunch last weekend a colleague asked if i've heard about this Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition in KL. I was like; *HUR* you sure?! How come there's no promotion whatsover?! Funny part was, someone actually asked if he got it wrong for the VINCCI shoe instead! So i googled it and to my surprise it was really true!

Being skeptical of the limited promotion on the event and having to actually pay for it, i googled a little about some people's feedback and most of them actually commented that it's worth visiting despite the overall science centres poor maintainence and un-scientific-ness! Without any high expectation hubba along with some friends decided to go check it out last Sunday irregardless.

So off we went... and upon arrival at the entrance of the Science Centre we immediately felt like we have traveled back into the 80's in a time machine. There was this squeaking robotic penyu amongst the dusty fake jungle as you enter and every single thing in there was extremely LOW TECH and OLD! I mean, where can you still find poster colored exhibits being used these days?!

Anyways, there is this one very important thing i thought i should share with you and that is the ticket charges of the exhibition. Being Malaysian, i am always suspicious of the charges implied especially when it's locally organised. I don't know why but i always have this gut feeling that they are there waiting to cheat my money! And despite doing all the findings and research about the ticket charges this time, we're still in a way - cheated!

Yes, i dare use the word CHEAT because i feel the organisers deliberately hid the special rates information from the public just so we would all stupidly pay a flat RM25 each. A lady even mentioned in her blog that she was charged RM90 for her entire family when she could have just paid RM70 for the family package for 2 adults and 2 kids. At the counter i asked the guy in charge about their "Group Purchase" and he shove me the card that was hidden behind the counter (click to enlarge)

We were like "WTF?!" Astro and TM subscribers gets to BUY 1 FREE 1?! Why the heck did they not say so in their website?! By that time we already bought our tickets and could only stare stupidly at each other. So we sucked it up and cursed our way in anyways. So people, BRING your Astro and TM Bills there if you intend to visit the exhibition!

We had to take a little walk to see Da Vinci's great work but along the way our appetite were pretty much ruined by the ticket purchasing experience and the whole poorly maintained so called science centre. We try to console each other that we still get to buy SOME of their merchandise for 50% off. And this is what you can find amongst their range of items.

Yeah, pretty lame. They have some kinda contest to win some money if you purchase and take a lame photo of yourself with the ruler of Mona Lisa's seductive stare. But you gotta pay RM3 to get your photo taken on top of the RM? you need to pay for this plastic ruler. Again, beware of that 50% discount deal, not everything is entitled the discount, only RED MARK items aite!

Okay, back to the main focus of the visit; to see Leonardo's great inventions and work of art. I must say that eventhough the featured work are all replica's it was still worth it. It's amazing to have the opportunity to take a peek into the mind of an inventor, artist, scientist, engineer, sculptor, anatomist, biologist, musician, architect, philosopher; all in one Rennaisance Man!

My favourite part of the exhibition was definitely the Mona Lisa section. There was SO MANY hidden secrets and details in the painting and even the back of the painting holds a whole lot of history! Yup, you will also get to see the replica of Mona Lisa there - front and back with at least 90% similarity to the actual one i was told.

Spent a good 2 hours in there marveling at Da Vinci's masterpieces and also pondering on his great quotes and state of mind through all the amazing things he has done. All in all it was an exhibition truly worth visiting! *Unlimited Stars*

“People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can't do it. You want something? Go get it.”

Almost too often, i find people telling me just that. I guess i wasn't wrong to not believe in these negative remarks. As i am learning the art of providing positive and constructive criticisms, i am also learning to art of rejecting negative downers which comes with nothing but bashing critiques of a personal view. And these personal views are often associated to one's lack of believe, not just in others but also in themselves. The quote from the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" couldn't have been more spot on.

I learnt a whole lot today by just observing the high and positive team spirit in my students and colleagues. I like the scene a whole lot better than the four walls settings. The highlights for me was probably seeing what everyone's capable of without having to measure their assignments standards; no pressure and no comparisons made. It definitely changed my view about so many of them and they have a voice in my head now.

The Pursuit of Happyness is a film about the value of resilience. While playing basketball with his son, Chris Gardner (as played by Will Smith) tells his son to forget basketball and do something useful. Realizing the mistake of what he just said, Chris tells his son, “Don't ever let someone tell you, you can't do something. Not even me.” He wants his son to know what he knows, that a persistent pursuit of your own dreams is the best way to bring a sense of happiness to your life.

Resilience is the ability to keep going when things get difficult. It is the ability to ‘bounce back’ when faced with life’s difficulties. Resilient people persist when others pack it in. It is the key skill to success – good old grunt work. You differentiate yourself when you’re tough and committed to whatever you have set out to accomplish. You’re the last person standing. The majority hope to achieve independence by purchasing lottery tickets. Resilient people create their own freedom.

Will Smith portrays resilience without glamorizing it. His character isn’t perfect; he struggles with his continuous failures. But he is mentally tough. He gets up every morning and starts again. The most powerful metaphor for his resilience is his dogged commitment to selling a bunch of high priced scanners that he has pre-purchased with his life savings. Faced with selling a Cadillac product into a VW market, Gardner persists in a sea of rejection until he finds a buyer for every one of the machines. This is the cold truth that grain-fed people don’t want to hear – in most cases, financial and emotional success is earned one hard day at a time.

Every one of us has been told by someone that our dreams were unattainable, inappropriate, or just plain silly. Some of us believed those people and went another way. Others were more committed to their personal goals. Gardner’s advice to his son is something we all ought to remember, “You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can’t do it. You want something? Go get it.”

You cannot know if your dream life can be attained. You have to pursue it to find out. It is the resilient pursuit of a meaningful dream that sets the table for those moments of great “happy-ness” when they arrive. A resilient approach to life is something everyone can do. It just takes a deeper need to succeed. Is it in you?

Sole & Soul Searching

I woke up to a beautiful Sunday morning with a mission to alter the start of each new day; begin with a prayer for wisdom and stability with the plans that are laid before me. I felt a breeze of love. Like the light weight wind that touches your face after the heavy rain or storm; calm, gentle and soothing.
"Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble"
Matthew 6:34

God always has His way to get His message across. We only need to ask. I am feeling tonnes lighter emotionally and spiritually today. And i know it because my love for craft is coming back to me effortlessly. It's been awhile since i have been feeling passionate about something personal - making art with love and now it's all coming back, slowly but steadily...

Plain FAB shoes

Not so plain FAB shoes (in progress)

Completed version coming soon - i promise :)

Making an Eternal Pledge? (I will try)

Overheard the DJ saying something about asking all Malaysians to make a pledge to make this country and whatever good that it has left a better and safer place for ourselves and our future.

*Laughs cynically* but proceeds to listen on give this suggestion some thought.

My best friend from the hood is due to bring/brought a new life to the world today. I was equally excited and haven't been sleeping well the past few days just being anxious and excited for the mom and dad to be. In fact, quite a number of my pals are having their mini me's and one guy even said that from the day his son was born, he and his wife immediately vowed to be better people themselves. Talk about a life changing experience.

I can't say i can relate, but i think i understand the impact of responsibilities one willingly holds to protect the ones they love. Having said that, i think we should all think about love in the aspect of respect and appreaciation, not just the flesh and blood way.

"Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself"
Leviticus 19:18

This verse has always been behind my head but never quite gotten out until today. I think Ms Ang, my Year 4 class teacher planted it in there somewhere along with other verses knowing that it will come in handy for me sometime in life.

I won't deny. I've been so consumed with bitterness the past few months due to a pebble in my shoe which won't go away.

Unfortunately, not all big ass pebbles are this comfy and useful.

The result of the bitterness has led to me to the lack of thoughts, inspiration and motivation in every single thing i do. Of course, i am only wallowing in self pity. I know my dad will surely tell me that there are a million other people who would want to trade for my so called burden and i am allowing a pesky individual eat me up?

Ah, almost 30 and still not that wise.
"When we meet horrible people in our lives, it teaches us only two things; To be a better person or be twice or more horrible than them."

I often end up with the second one only to feel horribly bad and incompetent. I wish i could firmly make a pledge to change my ways, and what better day to pick than this auspiciously date that represents eternity. So for the sake of the future of my family, friends, loved ones, their loved ones i pledge to be a more patient and forgiving. I'm done with this angry battle and i think i'm finally winning.

Finally, a post on shoes!

Since my on and off disappearance due to this never ending life sucking routine called work; i think my shoe fetish spark is finally making a slow and steady come back. If you've read a really old post of mine about CROCS, you will kinda have an idea about how much i despise their fugly round clumsiness. But since then, they have been working hard to please CROCS bashers like me and have designed a broad range of more decent styles. Just like this one below:

The Malindi range selling @ a hefty RM129

Anyways, i thought they are pretty cute, and i can imagine the comfort because i own a pair of Sketchers pumps which i got for a pretty good price at Taiwan 2 years ago.

But then again, you know me. I am the probably the cheapest shoeaholic in town/universe. I can love something to death, but i love my money more. With commitments of bills and mortgage i guess i'll probably not come close to Jimmy Choo's and Louboutins any time soon. (I said -soon, not never)

So being me, i always go for more affordable alternatives and this time i did it again at the second best shopping haven besides Petaling Street. I present you...

The Pasar Malam
(Night Market)

Yeap, it's ALL 'Crocs' alright! Made for cheap asses like me, wrapped in pull string bags and even tagged with the brand label! I was kinda dazed from the broad range but only one caught my attention and that is the Malindi leopard pumps!

Oh yes, they feel deliciously comfortable for RM35~ Will definitely go back for the Rio range next round!

Sucker for Sungha Jung

Okay, i will admit that after watching ICE AGE 3, 'Alone Again (Naturally)' is the only song that is looping on my playlist now (so sue me!) and my will to collect the best versions of the song led me to this swooning cloud 9 guitar version *jaw drops & knees weak* i wanna marry him when he grows up... oh wait, i'm already married tsk, oh, well... i'll have my daughter marry him!

Gone too soon

The skies were grey and teary this morning; in absolute contrast to the day before as if to join us in mourning for a great lost - Yasmin Ahmad; an inspiration to many Malaysians in the art & film industry who has relentlessly spread love, joy and hope to bring our countries shattering racial unity together. Over breakfast yesterday, i noticed a loving family sitting beside me; indian father, chinese mother and their little toddler whom many would label him as 'chindian', but he is infact a true blooded Malaysian of no ethnic divides. I know for a fact that such awareness would have slipped past my consciousness if it weren't for Yasmin's messages and lessons in all her work - Love, acceptance and forgiveness without descrimination.

Dearest Kak Yasmin, your passing will be greatly missed and we will wonder why you are taken away so soon. Rest well, rest in peace and wherever you are, thank you for everything.

Yasmin Ahmad (July 1, 1958 - July 25, 2009)

Like A Comet
Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon

Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon

Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon

Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon

Can i Pray for you?

You sure can Mr.Mantis - Thank you! :)

Today's Direction

Success Can Lead to Failure

You can learn a lot by looking at the mistakes of others. The Bible never glosses over anything. It shows you the good, bad, and ugly in people. It particularly shows you how people did things... the right way as well as the wrong way.

King Uzziah was an extraordinarily successful king. He was smart and popular. He ruled well. His kingdom was industrious and powerful both commercially and militarily. He was so successful, it went to his head. Where did he go wrong? He thought he could do whatever he wanted even if it went against what God ordained.

"But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall"(2 Chron. 26:16NIV).

Obviously pride marked Uzziah's downfall, but notice that he became prideful only after he became powerful. Be wise. Success can lead to failure. The Father wants you to succeed, but when He blesses you with success, remain in a position of humility. Satan will tempt you to exalt yourself. Pride leads you to break your faith in God.

Before it's too late, swallow your pride. It won't choke you and neither will it make you fat! The best remedy for pride is two bent knees.

"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time" (1 Peter 5:5-6NIV).

If there is a reason to be hopeful

Yasmin was the reason.

Malaysia is not ready to carry on without you, please hang in there and stay strong.

Monday, July 13, 2009

It's July, What's New

Not much. It's only been 2 weeks and i find myself ranting away to the entire planet about how broke i am this month. Wait a minute, i've always been broke, but i am extra broke this month because my wheels just turned 1 and the roadtax and car insurance bills are whispering to me during my sleep. Total nightmare.

At times like this i could only wish for a financial miracle of some sort. You see, i've been so desperate that i am actually trying my luck with a radio contest in attempt to win some cold hard cash. No kidding... am truly hopeful.

But hubba being the skeptic as always said there's really no such thing. He thinks the winners are probably orang dalam. I told him i'm gonna prove him wrong. For almost a month now, i'm still trying to prove him wrong despite the fact that i was usually ".." this close of getting through the phone line or nobody picks up my call! *sigh* i'm sure everyone who's trying to call in claims to know the answer and so do i... Infact i am about

90% certain!

because NO ONE has mentioned the name i'm guessing. So i shall remain hopeful and wake up deligently in the morning to try my luck! JD & Dilly... please lemme thruuuuu.... sobs....

Upside on the Downside with and Upside (repeat)

No, this is not Japan...

This is the recent view from that murderous jammed up road along Jalan Tropicana Utara i would drive through almost everyday. Usually only a few trees would occasionally blossom from shades of dark pink to white, but this time around almost all the trees are blossoming at the same time - without leaves?! (probably due to the super duper heat wave)

Who would expect an ever so depressing weather could have an UPSIDE. *enjoying the view*

There will never be another

August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009
-Forever to be missed, Never to be forgotten-

On 29th October 1996, i was amongst the 80,000 other privileged MJ fans, screaming his name and singing along to all his songs. My uncle who was a die hard fan got my brother and i the most expensive tickets to 'witness' the King of Pop because, "it's now or never", he said.
I won't deny the fact that i'm saddened by his passing. I was only singing to 'Billy Jean' two days ago and hubba attempted a corny 'Loh Lei Jin' parody. I grew up knowing his music before i could even recite my ABC's. My first introduction to Michael Jackson was from 'We are the World' and the rest was history. Having the chance to watch him perform live was unimaginable, I couldn't sleep the entire night after having seen THE one and only Michael Jackson LIVE and i failed my commerce papers the next day with superb flying colors (so worth it!). I believe i was left awe-strucked for a couple more weeks and the experience still seemed surreal to me until this day.
Anyways, I hope you find eternal peace now MJ, rest well and thank you once again for everything! xoxo.

Flowers, check! Shoes, check! Dresses...?


was my initial reaction when hubba asked me this question after driving for about 2.5 hours away from home and was about to turn into Tangkak toll upon arriving at Muar.

Yes, i forgot to pack my dresses into the car and i am the maid of honor for Vincey's wedding. Incidents like this only happens in dreams or nightmare rather... not to real life situation and certainly NOT to vain dudettes like me. But it really did happened and i spent a moment of silence in attempt to not throw a crazy 'bf' or leap out of the moving car.

After overcoming the difficulty in breathing, i started thinking of a backup plan of not having to attend the wedding in my PJs. After making some frantic SOS calls, i was saved for the evening with Lil's help by passing some dresses to Jo who will only be leaving for the wedding the next day. So half my dilemma solved and upon arriving Muar town at approximately 8.30pm, hubba and i explored every visible boutiques to get me a dress that must fall within the wedding color scheme... Pink, Peach, Salmon.

The experience to shop under pressure and limited option was super intensed and not recommended for the weak hearted. I could almost feel my stomache churning with an impending IBS attack! Too too much! After about 3 shops, i found a magenta pink slightly oversized dress that made me hubba RM100 poorer. So not worth it but i was hungry, tired and emotionally drained having to accept the sad fact that my lovely dresses are sitting lonely at home with no where to go... sigh. But i got over it pretty quickly cause it was afterall my buddy's BIG day and the last thing i want was everyone to fuss over me while we should be fussing over the bride. So, one great unforgettable story added to tell her kids next time... "Neh... that aunty there forgot to bring her dress to mummy's wedding!"

Taking my time

"My obsession for flats continues despite life's daily commitments and struggles."

Over the week, 3 more pairs were added to my foot vault. Amongst the 3 lovelies, the left was redeemed with cash vouchers and the right was a super duper generous gift from a buddy while the one in the middle was bought for 50% off. I was asked numerous times of the amount of shoes i have; to be honest, i really don't know as i never bothered counting them cause it's not like i'm attempting to break any record. So it'll probably remain a mystery for awhile ;)

Besides the new shoes addition, i also had another digit added to my age (along with the usual suspects).

For some reason, i'm a little (just a little...) perturbed by the fact that i will soon fall out of the 20's category. Did some check-listing of my achievements thus far and am feeling the intensed short of time and stamina to catch up and catch on. Some friends of my age had steadily started their family of little ones while i am still steadily doing freeze jumps photos and leaping off boats. I guess i've subconciously given up on chasing time and have decided to live as though everyday's the last. I think I've been laughing alot more lately, feeling loved and loving more. It's a good feeling to have the ability at times to place all of life's unpleasantness in the misery box and put off with a wishful yet harmless hope that it will eventually dissappear in time. People often think that one will instictively grow up as they age. For me, growing up means learning to take control of our emotions, weaknesses and making decisions that we are willing to bear full responsibilities of. I think i still have some distance to go but we all have our time, and i think we all deserve to take our time.

Ending = New Beginning

Finally, a new banner and shouts 'HOME' for me. It took me approximately 15 minutes to throw some of my fav shoes about and take a photo of it with my bloated feet.

I'm feeling more like 'it' now, i think i'm finally getting my voice back.

I was Lost...

But now i'm found.

My brief disappearance led me to do some serious 'sole' searching. I am going through 'that' phase in life; opting flats to heels because i'm starting to enjoy comfort to elongated legs. People tell me that they didn't realise i am actually this short. I think they meant 'petite'. Still, i am unperturbed.

I continued my journey of flats and soon i find myself wearing just that. I looked at my abandoned heels, not a tinge of sadness or urge to slip them on. I suddenly find myself walking faster, walking further, walking more. Sometimes i dance my way up and down the stairs (Audrey style, because she rocked the pumps and flats like no other).

I have to admit that i once feared wearing flats and pumps because i thought it will eventually lead me to granny panties. (But the granny panties do come in such range of fabulous embellishments and colors, i really don't mind splurging on 'em one day!) Meanwhile, I hereby present you my top favourites! :D

I'm back, but not for long

I've been so bogged down with work and all sorts of happenings in life that it's not funny anymore. I don't find myself smiling, crying or complaining. Just zooming with time and savoring every precious moment in life. All the speeding time had me made some serious decisions too (well, not really actually) I am at serious crossroads now. Still so, so, so... undecided about certain stuff as a matter fact.

So, in the midst of being fickle, i went ahead with other decisions. Got the sudden haircut (which not only i didn't regret but ended loving soooo much) and bought a trip to Phuket end of April *jumps and prance in joy* The thought of it makes my heart flutters like i'm surrounded by a dozen of pretty shoes. Meantime, gotta catch my sleep so i won't end up like that dude at work tomorrow morning!

And i thought i had a stressful day

Hubba says i've been grinding my teeth more frequently when i sleep. I'm quite sure it's stress related, but i sure hope i don't end up like the doggy down there.

If i could lay my hands on these babies

I actually did! Guess which one! ;)

I can't stand it anymore. The variety of shoes in KL are boring the heck out of me and my desperation has led me to an alternative shoe shopping source; online shopping. I have gotten some stuff online before but never shoes because my feet is a fussy lot. But hey, if the style is as good as the price offered online, i really don't mind giving it a go. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it FITS and looks as good! *nervous*

The Sunny Side

The shopping season has arrived! Walking through the mall for lunch is a hazardous task to my purse as the sales are so very tempting!

Yesterday i did the first official damage, a chiffon 3 tier sunny cocktail dress that caught my eyes, my heart and then my money *sigh* But the dress was just too 'happy' to be missed and as i was trying it, it made me sing...

Oh Shite!

As i was mundanely going through my mails and monthly bills i was shocked to find a PINK letter. Literally the 'shit' bill reminder of an overdue Rm100+ payment since April 2008.

Why did i say i was 'shocked' leh? Because i ALWAYS pay all my bills on time. But juggling so many bills monthly and manually, i thought i might have unintentionally left this one out by mistake. But still, how could i have overlooked this for so many months?! But i didn't think much about it and quickly logged onto the online banking to pay up.

As i was just about to hit PAY, i noticed that my registered bill number is different from the printed one, suspicious as i already was, it suddenly hit me that the nameless bill could be a mistake...

and i was RIGHT!
The one digit difference that almost robbed me broad day light!

Fuiyoh *wipes sweat*... i almost paid RM144 for another fella's 'shit'. It pisses me off when people don't pay their Indah Water bills because they are the reason we are not drinking our own crap. Anyways... i thought i'd anonymously leave a little message before sealing the mail back and returning it to the rightful unit.

And while everyone keeps saying we can ignore Indah Water because they don't seem to do anything, i on the other hand beg to defer. I remember reading a full spread article about the nature of their job and that is to clean up our SHIT and crap like wrongly disposed sanitary pads and gazillions of condoms that gets clogged in the sewage tunnel. They do the job to make sure our water resources are not contaminated by our own crap! So people, unless you can put a cork to your "x", you better pay up k!
