My own 40 days of mourning

Like the state of Negeri Sembilan, I am also having my own '40 days of mourning'. Of course this is me, figuratively speaking. There is hurt, tears and lots of unanswered questions but I am not wearing black. Instead, I am on the way to a quick recovery, hopefully living life better and to its fullest. Because I have realised the reason behind the incident and am feeling much better. However, I think that this '40 days of mourning' is essential in order for me to 'break free', so to speak.

Dede, thanks lots.

On a lighter note, it's new year's eve tomorrow! but i have no friends to go out with. Sob..I do not know how to celebrate it in my own way. anyone wanna go out? just give me a holler.

Of a Birthday, Phuket and a manly-woman mannequin (?) PART 3

M and I went to KLCC yesterday. needless to say, we enjoyed ourselves. oh, and twilight..first it was a bit boring..but then it becomes interesting and the cliffhanger at the end of the movie makes you want to know what happens next..u guys should go and watch it la..romantic, funny..did i just make it sound like a girl's movie? but you all should go and watch it.

so we were in Isetan doing some shopping when we came across this mannequin. it got us thinking whether we were still at the ladies section. but we had to be cuz it was wearing a dress. why did it puzzle us?

I don't know if it was just us cuz the mannequin looks manly..the shoulders are too broad for a woman. don't you think so? it looks like a man wearing a woman's dress. and it wasn't just this one, the others looked like this too..M said that maybe they ran out of woman mannequins so they just took the man mannequins and chopped the head off and put a dress on

My family and I then went to Phuket for a long-deserved holiday. personally, i was excited cuz i got to sit on an aeroplane after god knows how long. except for some family who i'm not sure whether it was their first time on a plane or theyw were just plain weird, the flight went well. we stayed in the Mariott Vacation Club in Khao Lak Beach. the hotel was amazing, the staff were friendly (which they are supposed to, right?) and the room was gorgeous and H-U-G-E.

In the Plane..poor vic..she looks like she just got

Poor subjected to our pic taking session

when we reached the hotel, the staff gave us some hand garlands which were so beautiful. the white flowers which they used were so unique and unusual.

yes those are flowers. coudn't get a clearer shot. they just look like some popcorn right..anyone know the name of the flower?

we were served fruit punch while checking in


we (well, my sisters and I) had a nice time exploring the room. did you know that they even provided us with a microwave, rice cooker (lol), washing machine and dryer? we were eqipped with everything and saved us some money hehe..

we were greeted by a cute towel elephant.

the view at night

so here are some interesting things i saw when i was there..

when we went to Tesco Lotus just to have a look around, i came across a baby powder with a very strange name..

Natural and mild ???

sweety pink???

I'm not sure if Thailand is rich or something but it seems to have pure bred dogs as strays..

such a cute and adorable shih tzu..but no owner?

I also saw a poodle and it was also a stray..hmm..

after having lunch in a restaurant, we came upon this funny signboard..

can't read it?


what's an island without a beach?

you can't see it here but the waves were huge and scary

those are just some of the pics we took in phuket..i was glad to be home. i had enough of the "sawadee ka". not in a bad way..was just happy to be back in a familiar place with food i know the names to..hehe..

(Note: no offence was meant)

Of a Birthday, Phuket and a manly-woman mannequin (?) PART 1

You guys know about my struggle to find something exciting to do for my birthday (and yes people, i am 365 days older but that doesn't mean I'm a year wiser lol ) . So on THE day I woke up looking forward to doing nothing when my sisters surprised me with a little something..

hehe..they got my age wrong buy it's the thought that counts right..the small words at the bottom of the card says "PS will get your green tea ice-cream later. hehehe". I kinda told them one day in HaagenDazs that I would love to one day try the green tea ice-cream. so I think they made a pact that day to get me the green tea ice-cream for my birthday. how cute of them!

Mum gave me this. it was at the right time cuz I really needed to get some perfume. lol

Then my saviour Des called to ask me whether i wanted to go out. of course i did and off to pavilion we went. We wanted to watch a movie but the choices were kinda boring so i decided to go have something to eat (Des- "it's your birthday so you decide what to do today. i can do anything and eat anything. you just say and we will go." how sweet..). after like, 30 minutes of mind boggling thinking of where to eat (can you blame us? we're both blur as blur can be), we finally went to..oh what was it called?..Rain nudle house izit?..cuz we haven't been there before. Found out that it was mostly thai food there. Poor Des had a hard time cuz she can't really take chilli. We talked as though there was no tomorrow lol. we went window shopping and gossiping about alot of things. (Remember to read more of CLEO des hehe..). we decided to lepak somewhere to rest our feet so we went to JCo. I had to go for dinner with my family then so that's how our little outing ended. i thought that we had lots of fun cuz it was quite awhile that we went out like that and for that long. hehe..

it's just now that I realised that we didn't take any pictures! a lot of candid moments were wasted..

Des ur the best!

Since I was already in pavilion, my family and I decided to go to TGI Friday's for was most embarrasing when my dad told the staff that it was my birthday..and they made me stand on a chair and sang happy birthday and so like the whole restaurant knew it was my birthday! they also made fun of me which made it that much fun!

Tina, Vic, Mum and Dad

all of us

all I can say that this was definitely a better birthday than the last..enjoyed every moment of it!

Einstein's back!

my dear little einstein is staying with me for 4 days! im so happy cuz haven't seen him for soo long..get to be his mommy again. all was well until we went out for dinner and when we came back we found out that he pee-d all over..that got my mum furious! he wasn't the cute einstein anymore cuz we were all in a &%#$^ he was relegated (can i say that?) to the back balcony...poor guy..but all was well cuz he's just too cute to be mad at. and it wasn't entirely his fault cuz he wasn't used to the place yet..he did all the look cute and make big puppy eyes thing at us..come on! who couldn't resist that?

here's some pics of einstein (note: he looks much better in real life. i just didn't know how to take the pics from the best angles)

here's he's looking at my mum who's eating some keropok..look at the longing in his eyes...

now he's sleeping snuggly in his blanket..he looks so peaceful.. :-)

oh yeah this afternoon had to drive to lcct cuz had to pick my relatives who juz came bak from sabah..i was so excited that i could actually drive long distance for once..followed my father and pepole who have seen me driving know that i don't like going fast..i prefer to be a snail(yes, i;m one of those kind of drivers) but i was like driving at 120-140 km/h!!..u may scoff at it but that was toooo fast for me..i was like "i'm gonna die! i'm gonna die!!!" but enjoyed the thrill anyways hehe..even at the corners i was like 120 and still! thank goodness i came home in one piece. but first time on the highway and going that fast...only god knows how fast i will drive if i have my own car..

time is running out and i still haven't figured out what to do! i'll just hv to succumb to watching reruns on tv...shit..

Cookie Madness!

I had nothing to do today (again) so finally decided to bake some yummy chocolate chip cookies! was very know, to see my creation begin to take shape. i was so excited when i put the chocolate chips in the mixture...had a few like that (hehe). when i finally had to bake them the recipe said to put large spoonfuls of the dough and flatten a bit with a i put a huge dollop and flattened it with all my expertise...lo and behold when i put it in the oven it sort of melted because of the heat and turned into like this flat expanse of cookie that looked like a chocolate chip cake than chocolate chip cookies..i was like..oh shit what have i done..disaster! i thought to myself that i can throw away any aspirations of being a baker out the window! then i strated to panic when the sides were already brown but the middle wasn't...u could imagine the amount of thinking i put my brain to today (and this is amazing considering the lack of brain cells i have been using lately). and it was all soft. aren't cookies supposed to be hard? oh well..i thought my cookies looked like they were inedible so that really made my day.sob..

this was what the first batch looked like..

oh god it's all out of shape and looks like some omelette or really really not an, with the experience of the first batch of cookies being way out of size and porportions, i became a little smarter and made the next batch much much smaller..

now this one looks more like delicious looking cookies! yummy!! not bad huh for the second attempt. sometimes i become like an 'over-perfectionist' so i didn't like it when the top wasnt brown enough so i put it in the oven toaster ( :-P) just to make it look that much better..did i cheat? oh well...but it tastes great! my sis was like waiting to devour it ( and i mean devour). and the advice i got from a 9 year old was "it has too much chocolate". that's funny considering she loves chocolate and she was the one who asked me to put that much of chocolate chips inside.. i guess we all just like to comment on something especially when that someone really didn't think she did well..that's my sis!

is making cookies really that tiring..cuz i was beat after cleaning up..i don't know how people can say they enjoy's hard work!

maybe i'll just visit the bakery next time..c ya!

A Quest!

i have got no idea what to do for my birthday. it usually shouldn't be so hard to think about- who wouldn't want a day full of activities with a fabulous birthday party that never seems to end. unfortunately, this broke (SOB...) lookin for cheap alternatives but everything that so far i thought might be cheap costs at least 200-300. !!!..i've hit an absolute low. i thought of going for paintball but..yup u guessed it..still too expensive for me right now.

there goes my fun-filled day of activities...

however, i won't give up so easily and am still finding for alternatives..right now, i only want the experience of a fun birthday rather that the glamoures-ness or the expensive-ness. it has not been easy though. i don't want to just sit at home and watch tv! movies is fine but i still want something out of the ordinary.

anybody have any ideas?

maybe i should go for a picnic at the lake..or watch both sunrise and sunset..or go bungee jumping (i really want to do this! but there i go again, asking for too much)..maybe i should just go and bake some cookies like some old granny..

i don't want a boring birthday!

a try..

seems like everyone is blogging...isn't blogging a kind of diary writing except that it's for the public?
well..this is a first attempt after 'henna'...kinda got a shock after doing that cuz of some unforeseen circumstances but am now brave enough to face the challenges of thinking-of-something-to-write-for-the-sake-of-updating-my-blog.

philosophical thoughts from me? only when i'm in that "ting" (lightbulb) moment but hey...don't underestimate me, i can write things that will make you sit up and wonder..

other than that we'll just see what comes..

happy reading!
