lonely

Feel lonely, especially on a festive eve.

How do I adapt back to the lifestyle before he jumped into my life?

So used to be around him.

Hanging out with him.

Chatting with him.

Looking at him.

No more now.

Staring

Staring at the big bear that he gave me for my birthday 8 years ago.

Staring at the bunch of mini bears bouquet that he gave me for my birthday this year.

Staring at them without a reason.

Just wanna stare.

But the thing is, the more I stare, the more my heart aches.

so difficult

Why is it so difficult to not to think of someone?

Even when during normal conversation, I will always mention him.

Even when I am doing something, I will always think about him.

Can't stop looking at our photos together.

My brain just couldn't let me stop thinking about him.

Forgetting someone is never easy, isn't it?

Gosh, I miss him.

Tough moments

Had an argument with him last Wednesday.

And I thought going to KK on weekends can make me forget him for awhile, but it didn’t.

During the trip, I have thought about a lot of things.

I wonder he really doesn’t want to hear my voice anymore.

I feel that he is bored of me after all these years.

I think he will be happier without me in his life.

I ponder about our time together. Good and bad.

This is worst time that we are going through. Everytime we argued, we settled within 2 days. But this time, it is that bad. He never call since last Wednesday, except for hacking my facebook account.

There is no future that I can foresee at this moment.

Maybe we need some time-off for each other.

I am trying to adjust my life without his presence now.

It is not easy, but I will try.

La Yosh - Plaza Damas

When I see Japanese Western Food, I immediately thought of Pasta Zanmai. There is another restaurant located in Plaza Damas that has similar concept. But to me, both have their own distinct taste.

It was almost 9pm when we reached there and the restaurant only have one table occupied. It is not big though but the ambience was cozy with dim lights and nice settings / decoration. They also have an open kitchen concept where you can see the chef cook.

I ordered Chicken Steak Mushroom (RM21.90), couldnt resist anything with mushrooms (must be influenced by my sis). It came in a really small plate / portion and it was just nice for me. The spaghetti sauce was just nice, it was not overly creamy. The chicken steak was nice too, but I took out the skin, too fatty for me. Wish they could give more mushrooms and vege though.

PB285067


Boy boy ordered Set Dinner (RM38). It came with salad, soup, main dish and dessert. The salad was normal. The soup that day was clam chowder. A bit powdery (I think all clam chowder is like that) and a little bit clam in it.

PB285066


There have 3 main dishes for you to choose from (if I am not mistaken), boy boy chose grilled salmon. I am very particular with GRILLED salmon as it has fishy smell whenever the salmon is grilled, I always prefer it to be fresh. This La Yosh version too was no exception. I took a bite and there was some fishy smell. I like the carrot though, nice taste.

PB285069

The set comes with green tea ice cream. Normal.

PB285070

Maybe I will come back again with my family to give it another try.

Hurt

I really couldnt take some many emotions at one time. I will go crazy!

He just told me that I am freaking noisy, better dont talk at all.

These words coming from that someone's mouth, hurts me the most.

I pondering a lot things.

F**king EMO now.

frustrated

5 words to describe my feelings today:

Upset

Disappointed

Frustrated

Pissed

Annoyed


These 5 feelings would never occur to me all together, but it happened today.


I don’t feel appreciated at all. Whatever effort that I have put in for the past 2 years and a half is all useless from your point of view, judging from what you did to me today.

Fine. Well done. You managed to push my fire up to another level. You have prompted me more to move to another step. You bear with the consequences. You deserve it.

Period.


Damn EMO now.

My day at TCM bazaar

Last weekend was our very first bazaar at Tropicana City Mall. My partner and I were excited. We were quite kelam-kabut during the arrangement of items on the first day.

PC045082

After settling down everything, we were ready to serve the customers. The only thing was there was no crowd. =.=" If there are people walking by, the just see see look look, and some dont even bother to walk till end, they U-turn when they almost reaching our booth. We were quite disappointed.

In the evening, Michie Gan came and visit us with her family, we were so happy to catch up with her.

During the whole day, we saw our neighbouring booths complained to the organizer that there is no crowd, there was no business for them etc. The organizer didnt come to our booth and say hello. My partner was really angry.

At the end of the day, I went up to the organizer and requested to change our booth to a better location, and she agreed. Thanks.

So, the second day, we were just in front of 7-11, some sort of near the entrance of TCM, which was good enough. At least people will come and flip our clothes.

This is PY, who was so kind to help me jaga booth on weekends. Thanks dear, muacks!

PC055088

During some free time, I took some photos.

PC055100

PC055098

Second day was good enough for us, although we still wanna complain a lot of things ie. the band who kept on repeating the 5 songs every 2 hours (i.e again Pixie Lott). The band was totally not up to par.

The bazaar was until 10pm, but most of the vendors packed their things starting from 6pm. Our perception was since we paid for the rental fee, mai suai we waited till the end. Around 9pm, there were only 3-4 booths left (out of 40 booths). The organizer came and chat with us. We gave them our honest opinions, no hard feelings ya! We do hope for improvements in the future.

We will be participating in the same bazaar in January, and we hope that the response is good.

Bone & Pot

Even before this place was opened, there were a lot of banner along the road in Taman Mayang. Initially we thought it was some chinese 'dit da' center, but after it was opened, we found out that it is a steamboat place.

The place was incredibly packed at night. So, the day when my bro left to SG, my parents wanted to try out this place. They picked me up at LRT station and we reached the restaurant at 6.30pm, and there were only 3 tables occupied. Please come early if you wanna try out, because by 7pm, the restaurant was packed and that day was a Friday night.

PB264995

The waitress there was very friendly, she introduced their special dishes and assisted us in ordering the food. We ordered fried sotong as my mum wanted to try. The sotong was fresh and it was really crispy and not oily. The only complain was the portion was too small for 3 of us! We wanted more!

PB264999

There are no set menu. You pick your broth and dishes. We picked beef slices, it came in a rather big portion. My dad was really happy with it and said it was really good (note: my dad is picky with beef).

PB264998

Oyster mushroom, vege, dumpling. yee mee and pork meat balls. The dumplings were filled to the brim, it has prawn pieces in it, it was very tasty. The pork meat balls as well.

PB264997

We picked 2 types of soup: Pepper broth (left) and their signature pork bone broth. Honestly speaking, my parents and I prefer the pepper broth as it was really peppery. The pork bone broth was so-so only. The pepper broth was diluted after they added soup in it but didnt add pepper. So make sure that you drink more during the first round.

PB264996

They have 5 different sauces for you to choose. I personally like the fried garlic. Let me warn you first, the chilli on the bottom right was really spicy, not for the faint-hearted.

PB264994

Hot boiling soup with lots of ingredients.

PB265000

The food was enough for the 3 of us (not a big eater) and the bill was RM80. It was a bit expensive for steamboat considering that we do not order any seafood (except the fried sotong). Nevertheless, it is worth a try if you are willing to splurge on good steamboat, their ingredients are fresh and the broths are nice. Will I go back again? Yes I will.

Random

Ok guys, I am getting my new laptop tomorrow, hope that my blogging entry will resume as usual. I am still blogging from my dad’s laptop.

Updating my status in this post.

**

Brother has gone to SG last Friday. That morning itself, when I sat beside him and waking him up and told him that I am going to work ady and asked him to take care, my tears almost wanna flow out. Sigh, what a useless sis. Is always like that. Last time when we sent him off to Australia (that was like 8 years ago?), everyone was ok (no crying) until when my bro hugged me, my tears uncontrollably flowed out, and made all the people there cried. Luckily that morning he was still blur blur, haven’t wake up, so I left quickly, dem emo lor me.

Nevertheless, he settled down in SG now and he just booked tickets to come back during CNY. I am planning to go SG in June for their Mega Sales. No worries bro, every 3 months you can see us. Hahaha. SG not that far lar, First Coach / Airasia also very cheap only. Is just the hotel stay is expensive lor.

**

Yay! My sis is coming back from Australia for holiday this Friday. Guess my sis is the most excited person to see my bro back during CNY. She misses him a lot, she even dedicated a blog post for him. My sis misses her dogs too!

**

Today 5.30am received a sms, I have half expecting it to be a spam, it appeared that my cousin, Yen has just gave birth to a baby boy at 12.22am weighing 2.7kg, and she sms us to say that she is fine. She will be resting in my grandma’s place. Woo…I get to see the baby for a month.

Expecting another cousin of mine, Martin’s wife is giving birth around this time too, but her one is a baby girl. We are just waiting for the time to come. So, 2 babies have teman to play with each other during growing up stage. Same as my bro and I with Jojo, Ray, Yen, Wohlut and Mart, all of us are around the same age, we had good time together. Hope the next generation will have too!

**

Now, that’s one tiny problem, when people around me starting to get married or give birth, my emotion become unbalanced again. Sigh, thinking that why I couldn’t get marry … I want a baby too! When I have a lot of makeup jobs all packed together, I wanted to be a bride too. But now I already get used to the feelings or maybe numb already. That’s a good sign though, I still can play around for a few more years, no one can control.

**

I am going to Tao Cuisine to celebrate boy boy’s mom 60th birthday this Friday night. I have heard lots of good reviews and bad reviews for this buffet dinner. Good from Boy boy, bad from NCE. Guess I better try it out and see it for myself because NCE claimed that it was really really bad.

**

Starting a business is really hard. The amount of time and money spent on it is un-measurable. Sometimes, during Emo time, you will feel very depressed. However, Dad, mom, Boy boy and partner are really supportive. Guess when you never try, you never know right. Let me try to venture into this business and see whether am I fated to be in the fashion business.

I am having a booth in a bazaar at Tropicana Mall this weekend. A lot of things need to be prepared. I was in the sales line before and I have no idea why am I still so nervous about this. Need to buckle up my mood and attract more customers to stop at our booth.

I will also be displaying some accessories (necklaces, earrings) made by my mum (mind you, she went for a course to learn how to make accessories ok). Maybe I can try to sell cookies or cake made by my mum hor. Wah, what chap ba lang things also I wanna sell. Hahaha. If my partner read this, sure she will get shocked.

**

Mum will be giving me her small working table for me to put my new laptop and some fengshui stuffs to activate my business luck. Can’t wait to decorate my working table.

**

End of report.

The Next Three Days

The movie was about Russell Crowe’s wife, Lara was accused of murdering her boss and was put in jail. Russell Crowe talked to an ex-convict who managed to break out of jail 7 times on how to escape from jail. After that, he plans the whole jail-breaking thingy to save his wife out.

The movie was around 2 hours plus. The story was a bit slow for the first half (indeed it was really uneasy for me to sit through the first half), and it started to pick up when RC save his wife out.

The whole story was indeed a bit fake as you may say, but no doubt that RC’s character is very smart, I didn’t expect him to plan until so far away (the detective searching the map part). Plus some luck, the whole plan works really well.

MIA

I am really sorry for abandoning my blog for quite some time. As some of you may have guessed, I have started a blogshop with my friend. For the past 2 months I was quite busy with the blogshop, and hence the mia-ness in here. Everything has been quite hectic since then.

I have yet to write about my Taipei trip and a lot of food posts pending. Update will resume this week and will try my best to update at least once a week ya.

I am foreseeing December to be a busy month for me again as I will be participating in a bazaar this coming weekend (4 & 5 December) in Tropicana Mall. First time having a booth in bazaar and I am very very excited, and at the same time nervous. If you guys are free, please drop by and visit me ya.

Not to mention that my company trip will be on the 3rd weekend in December. Busy busy, but still manageable.

Stay tuned!

Bee Ho Steamboat - Subang Jaya

Another Pulau Ketam Steamboat in Subang Jaya, similar to Ho Ho's concept. This Bee Ho was priced at RM13.50 per one pax set (if I am not mistaken). We ordered 2 sets and wine-steamed clams (RM20 I think).

The ingredients were not stacked as high as Ho Ho and slightly little compared to Ho Ho. They also have one type of soup only. The soup was clear but not as rich as Ho Ho. I cant stop but to keep on comparing both shops coz they have the same concept.


P9123976

We ordered the clams as well. BIG fresh clams, boy boy loves it. with lots of ginger and a hinch of wine. This was priced around RM20 plus I think.

Unstoppable

This film was inspired by a real story. It talks about unmanned train that is carrying harzardous materials that went unstoppable. Until a point that veteran locomotive engineer, Denzel Washington and rookie conductor, Chris Pine works to stop the train. Similar incident with Keanu Reeves’ movie Speed.

This movie will glue you to your seat and keep you from breathing when the people trying to stop the train and the stunts they are doing. Especially they release a man from a helicopter to land on the train and Chris Pine kicking the lock pin down. Plus, when the train taking a critical corner turning, I did not blink my eyes at all. It was this intense. I grabbed boy boy’s hand very tightly during these scenes.

Denzel Washington did a great job portraying the veteran engineer. Well, we can’t question Denzel’s acting capability, cant we? I have no doubts on this acting capability. His character was very farnie, cracked some jokes. He has gotten fatter though. I think he is jumping into the same banwagon as Samuel L Jackson gang.

Rosario Dawson deserves a thumb up too! She was really really good.

As for Chris Pine, so-so, nothing to shout about. I think he shines more in Star Trek.

Megamind

After sending my parents and bro to the airport, I went to One Utama to catch the movie – Megamind alone. Since boy boy don’t like to watch cartoon show, I decided to watch it myself since I have nothing to do at home.

It was 11.30am show and the whole cinema has one couple sitting on my right and 3 different individuals seated few rows in front of me. There are people who likes to watch movie alone one wor. I am not the odd one out ya.

Standard cartoon movie with some lame jokes. I tried to laugh since I was supposed to enjoy the movie. The movie is about this super-intelligent alien who was raised in a prison and turned out to be villain when he was discriminated by his school mates while his nemesis, Metro Man gained fame as Metro City hero.

So both Megamind and MetroMan has been fighting numerous battles until one stint finally killed MetroMan. Without the presence of MetroMan, Megamind feels bored, so he created another hero, Tighten, and he turns out to be a disaster.

There goes the story. I would prefer How to Train Your Dragon or Toy Story movies anytime.

Phai Lin Thai - damansara uptown

Cravings for Thai food on a raining day. Decided to venture into this new restaurant. When we reach, it was around 8.30pm and the restaurant was empty. I was a bit skeptical when I entered the restaurant. The restaurant space was really big, I think can cater more than 100 guests, but it was empty. When fly flies past also you can hear.

Nevertheless, still wanna drink the tomyam soup. We ordered the set for 2 person (around RM52++, I think).

Spring roll.

PA034043

Salted Fish Kai Lan. Huge amount.

PA034047

Tomyam seafood. The tomyam taste was not strong enough, I tasted quite diluted. It was sour but not spicy. The ingredients were a lot though.

PA034046

Green curry chicken. I love this! The green curry was thick in flavour and it was sweet to my liking. Lots of ingredients as well. I ate more green curry than the tomyam soup.
PA034044

Dessert.

PA034048

I think I will go back and try other food, maybe the steam fish, despite the tomyam was not up to par. The plus point is that they are not stingy with the ingredients.

Takers



When I saw the trailer of this movie, Hayden Christensen’s character caught my attention. I am not a fan of his (not a fan of Star Wars either), but I surely like his look in this movie, with a hat and a bow tie and a vest. Cool like mad.

The starting of the movie was interesting, it described how they rob a bank efficiently and done it with super uber coolness. After that, it has some talking scenes. I was a bit tired and I felt asleep. The eyes really cannot open muh.

Then it was like ¼ of the show, the actions started to come in i.e the boming of the road, the blasting of gun fires, the chasing sequences (Chris Brown must be exhausted while filming this movie), the Russian mobs shooting scenes etc. All these scenes came non-stop and I stayed awake till the end.

Storyline was so-so, the characters lack of dept, they emphasize a lot on the life of Gordon, Jake and the two policemen. I have no idea what Paul Walker and Hayden Christensen’s life was about.

I think they will have a second sequel on the survivors or even a prequel to describes Paul Walker and Hayden character.

Tiny Verdict: 8/10 (the action scenes are enough to glue you to the seat)

Pizza San Francisco - Bukit Jelutong

We were at Nikky’s house that night. So we went and try out this new restaurant called Pizza San Francisco.

Mushroom Soup (RM5.90)

PA024036

Calzone (RM19.90)

PA024042


Lamb chop at a promotion price of RM12.90, which was very cheap, so we kinda expect it would be a tiny portion. But they proved us wrong by giving us 4 big pieces of lamb chops! Huge amount of it as well as …. Lamb fats. Too fat la the lamb, I have to cut off lots of fats. Then there is certain parts of the lamb chops were very red in color, I don’t dare to eat. I only eat well-done lamb.

PA024039


Suyin ordered Carbonara (RM15.90), she said it was tasteless.

PA024038

Santa Barbara Chicken (RM26.90). Quite a big portion but lots of rough chicken breast meat.

PA024040

Ice Lemon Tea (RM4.90) and Drinking water (RM0.90). They offer quite a variety of western chops and pastas. Can give it a try though but not too high expectations.

Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh

On a Saturday, we went for house hunting with Nikky and Suyin. Before we start the hunting, we went for lunch at the famous Pao Xiang BKT. The Pu Er costs RM5.

It was a quiet afternoon for them. The price was expensive and the food portion was small. If you are dining 2 person, make sure that you order AT LEAST 2 types of meat, if not you wont be full.

The advantage of the restaurant was that they serve the meat on top of a burner. So your meat and soup is always hot.

Sui Kut Tang Ki (RM9.50); Pai Kut (RM9.50); Luan Kut (RM9.50); Sum Chan Bah (RM9.50). You can ask for additional soup. I didn’t see them charge for this additional soup.

PA024017


The soup was sweet and the meat was tender.

We ordered some Yao Mak (RM8.50) for the greens.

Then, the Yao Char Kuey / Oil Stick (RM4) was strongly recommended by Nikky and Suyin. We ordered 2 bowls. Indeed, it was really crunchy and not oily as the other YCK. It was really good! If you are going there, make sure you order one bowl of this YCK just for yourselves, no sharing! This was THAT GOOD.

Sun Ban Lee Bak Kut Teh - Seapark

Whenever we passed by this place, it was full of people. So on a rainy Sunday night, we decided to try this BKT. At 9pm, the restaurant was empty. We ordered one dry and one traditional version BKT.

This is my first time trying dry BKT. The sauce was sweet. I hope they give more lady fingers though. Not bad actually.

P9254009

The soup version came boiling hot. It was ok.

P9254011

The yaocharkuey was a bit soggy, not nice at all. Other than that, it was average BKT shop.

Carnaval Churrascaria

Managed to ajak Yweng couple, Nikky couple and my bro to try out this brazillian buffet restaurant on a Sunday. The restaurant offers 15% discount on Sunday, so we paid RM48 + RM1.20 (refillable plain water).

We were giving 2 types of condiments to eat with the meat.

PA104121

They offer different types of grill meat off the skewer. So when the waiter brings the meat to you, just say 'Yes' if you want it and he will cut it for you. Throughout the whole night, they will keep on bringing out different types of meat.

PA104122

Chicken Ham and garlic bread. God knows how many pieces of Garlic bread that me, my bro, mich and scott took, more than 10 pieces for each of us. Although it tasted slightly sour but it smell so nice and tasted good.

PA104123

There is also an area for salad and some vegetables.

PA104127

Chicken sauge, lamb leg, and beef.

PA104131

Curry fillet: so-so only. The grill chicken tasted awesome, it was well-marinated and full with flavour, the only downside was it was really salty. I was so tempted to take another piece, but I scare of the saltiness.

PA104128

They have gizzards and pineapple. Oh ya, the grill pineapple is a must-try too! very very juicy and sweet, we ate quite a lot of that.

That was the day we celebrated 10.10.10.

Overall, it was a good dining experience. If you loves meat, definately must come here and try. Now my dad wants us to bring him dine there after hearing our good reviews.

Mezze - Medan Damansara

Thinking hard on where to celebrate our 8th anniversary dinner and finally settled with Mezze, a Mediterranean food. I am not new to Mediterranean food as I have tried before elsewhere and I find them tasted unique.

At first I was targeting for a quiet and romantic place for us and not too far from my house. I thought Mezze was not a bad place but I overlook the ‘bistro’ setting. The moment I step into the restaurant, we were seated in the middle of the restaurant and there are a lot of tables occupied by uncles who drink wine and very noisy.

This aside (still tolerable), the restaurant allows the customers to smoke under air-con environment! This I couldn’t tolerate. I hate people who smoke in air con environment. Please la, be considerate a bit, I don’t wanna have lung cancer like you ok. Boy boy said there is no sign in the restaurant said ‘smoking is not allowed’. I really regret my decision of coming here.

PA114134

We placed order for 2 starters, 1 main and 1 dessert. The waiter told us that they will serve the food in sequence. He specifically mentioned, “we will serve the 2 starters, then the main and then the dessert” We agreed.

Portobello mushroom (RM16). I love Portobello mushroom, this was juicy and together with some garlic paste with pine nut, I think this was good enough.

PA114139

Goat cheese salad (RM18). This dish was on the chef’s special that day. It came with a splash of goat cheese, slightly melted on a piece of bread, some salad in the middle with some sprinkle of bacon. It tasted very new to me coz I have never eat a splash of goat cheese, the smell of cheese was bearable. Eaten together with the fresh salad and crispy bacon, it was nice.

PA114138

After we were finished with the starters, we waited 20 minutes before they serve us lamb pilaf pie and brownie, TOGETHER. Both of us stared at the waiter and hope he noticed that these two things were not meant to serve TOGETHER. He didn’t do anything.

“So what do we do?” Boy boy asked.
“Hm…. Tak kan we ask the waiter to take back the brownie?”
“Erm, isn’t it weird to eat the brownie first then the pie?” Boy boy asked.
“Never mind lor, what to do?”

So, unwillingly, we ate the brownie first. Brownie with a scoop of Hagen Daaz ice cream (RM19.50). Luckily the brownie tasted delicious, it was not moist enough but it was good enough to satisfy my cravings for chocolate cake. I really wish that I finish the night with this dessert.

PA114140

OK, let’s eat Lamb Pilaf Pie (RM33) after the dessert. We were looking for some lamb shank or lamb shoulder to order but the menu doesn’t have it. They only offers Lamb Pilaf Pie and Lamb Moussaka. We went with the former.

PA114141

When we break open the crust, it was basmati rice and the lamb with herbs were embedded between the rice. The crust was good and the lamb was good. I feel like this dish that I am eating Arab-style rice.

PA114143

We were full at the end, not to mention that we were soaked with smelly cigarette smell. I pushed my half-drank Melon berry More mocktail (RM9) for boy boy to finish it and before he sipped, he saw a baby fly in it. I really sweat big time. More points minus off from this restaurant.

PA114144

Overall, I was just really disappointed with this restaurant and I really do regret my choice of choosing this restaurant to celebrate my 8th year anniversary. I totally do not recommend families or couples to come here.

8 years together

It is our 8th year anniversary today. When we got together I didn’t even think that we could last this long (actually I didn’t expect him to be so loyal, hehe).

This is the first pressie he gave to me during our first dating and it is always beside my bed.

When PY and I were shopping in a bazaar, we saw a stall that sells cards. PY and I bought this card. I thought it is a butterfly at first but when I look closer, beneath the 2 butterflies, there are two characters that resemble the first gift that he gave me. Immediately I bought it, to remind both of us that how far we have come.

I have the urge to tell you guys how we got together, not many people knew about it, but I think it is a classic story that I can share with everyone.

After we graduated from secondary school, we lost contact (not to say lost contact because we don’t even talk to each other during secondary school, same class for 1 year some more). 3 years later, he added me through ICQ and we started chatting. Then he started to tell me all the sweet sweet things (which I chose not to disclose).

After 1 month of online ‘flirting’, he still didn’t ask me to be his gf. I was wondering whether we are a couple or not, or does he really like me, or he is just being nice to me, or he does not want to proceed further to a relationship?

So, finally, I asked the one million dollar question, “Would you like to be my boyfriend?” not through phone, it was through ICQ. Dem daring.

He didn’t answer me though, he asked me back, “would you like to be my girlfriend?”

That was how we got together, through ICQ.

Then, we went for our first date. He didn’t hold my hands. When I got back home, I complained to him that why he didn’t hold my hands, isn’t couple supposed to hold hands? He said that he was scared that I fling his hand away, and I said I wont do that.

So, on a second date, we walked for 30 minutes in the shopping complex and yet he still don’t wanna hold my hands. So I pissed off a bit and asked, “you wanna hold my hands or not one???”

Then he quickly hold. That was how we started of pak toh.

At the blink of eyes, it has been 8 years. Sometimes I wonder whether I am a replacement for her 3rd ex or not coz he entered into the relationship with me 2 months after the breakup. But time proves me wrong, because I know that he really loves me, he is the guy that I really want to be with for the rest of my life.

To Boy boy:

I truly appreciate the time and years that we spent together and celebrating all important events together.

Thank you for tolerating my fluctuating mood.

Thank you for your support in everything that I do.

Thank you for accompanying me when I am sad.

Thank you for having me in your life.

I cherish every single seconds with you.

Happy 8th Anniversary!


p/s: note that I did not bring the marriage issue up here coz I am beginning to think that there is a purpose why I am not married until now, maybe is an arrangement from God and I have started to accept it. The time will come, and I will just have to wait patiently for it without any forced actions that can damage our relationship.

10.10.10

I am happy for a friend Carolyn who is registering her marriage today.

She booked me for the makeup. Whenever I have morning makeup job, I couldnt sleep well the night before. Indeed, it happened again last time. Slept at 10pm, woke up 11pm and 1am. Finally, I woke up at 4am and went to her place at 5am and did her makeup. Luckily my finger did listen to my prayers, it just haltered my 2% of the makeup movement. Other than that, it was doing fine.

This is Carolyn in her beautiful ROM dress with a nice big ribbon at the back. Envy!

Anyhow, the gang of us (my bro, Nikky couple and yweng couple) also celebrated this special day in Carnaval Churrascaria for brazilian buffet. Just came back.




Index finger update:

The wound close already. I didnt let water to touch it for one week until today when I washed off the hair spray on my hair and it didnt feel pedih. Minyak gamat (sea cucumber oil) really works miracle! Sometimes you need to rely on some traditional medicine.

It happened that my mum's malay colleague gave her a bottle and she kept it until I told her that my colleague recommended me minyak gamat. I applied minyak gamat for 5 days, 'kiasi' (fear of dying) a bit, 3 times a day.

I think the wound needs time to heal. I cant bent my finger like the other left index finger do, cant straighten it like the other one. It do have sudden pain when I tried to use the force of 5 fingers.

And one more thing, I phobia foldable umbrella already.

Yu Ai - SS2

PY was super eager to try out this curry noodles after reading from a blogger's blog. She wanted to go to segambut for this but I said they have a branch in SS2, which is very near to our location. On one fine day, both of us went there for lunch.

I have known the existence of Yu Ai ages ago but I have only tried once few years ago because I am not a fan of curry noodles and seafood that time. That time it was priced at RM13 for small bowl and RM15 for big. Now, they have increased it to RM15 for small and RM17 for big. Pricey to eat I can say, but once in while, never mind la.

You can choose the ingredients that you want, if not they will just give everything to you i.e sotong, clams, prawns, mussels and fish slices. My bowl of curry noodles look simple coz I exlcuded the clams and mussels.

P9103968

The curry soup was really thick and the ingredients were super duper a lot! 5 big prawns without the shell and lots of sotong. The fish slices were very fresh too. The curry was not that spicy but it was rich and creamy. PY said it was nice but nothing comparable to her hometown curry noodles (I have yet to try). At least it was good though that she didnt complain about it coz she is very very fussy with curry noodles or tomyam noodles.

Speaking of tomyam noodles, Yu Ai offers it too! We didnt try it that day, but one week later, I went back to Yu Ai with boyboy coz his turn to request that he wanted to eat curry noodles. So this time, I risked my stomach and ordered tomyam (PY, make sure you read this sentence ya coz you asked me to experiment).

I took a sip of the soup, it tasted slightly sour and a hint of lemony taste. Erm, not the typical tomyam broth that I tasted in the steamboat stall and Cozy Corner. This was darker in color. Still eatable though.

P9194002

I mentioned to PY about it and she said the lemony taste tomyam is what she had been looking for in PJ. So she excitedly went and try few days later but she said it was not on par to her standard. Hm... different people different taste I assume.

By the way, you can order curry mix with tomyam broth in Yu Ai. I dont wanna risk my stomach for that version le. PY, you go eat and tell me.

accident or careless?

Yesterday, AL and I planned to go Citibank for lunch. After I stepped out from the office, I opened my umbrella (sort of new because I got it from my mum 2 weeks ago), and suddenly I slipped my hand through it. I felt a bit pain, so I look at my fingers. And I saw lots of blood flowing out from my right index finger.

I thought it was just a small stratch, so I was quite calm at that moment. But few seconds later, the blood was flowing so fast until it dropped onto the floor like water flowing out from the tap. Then AL and I panicked.

Took a piece of tissue and covered the wound, the blood immediately stained the whole tissue. Took another piece and applied pressure on it. Still the same. Took the third piece. Still the same.

We were struggling whether to go back to office or go to clinic. AL’s opinion was to stop the blood myself first. So when we walked back few steps, I opened the tissue and see again, the wound was quite big then I told AL that I better go to clinic. I don’t think I can stop the blood myself.

When I was in the clinic, I told the nurse that I cut my finger. Then she said, “potong dengan pisau?” I said, “bukan, potong dengan umbrella”. Then they all laughed and kept thinking how the heck I cut myself with an umbrella.

Luckily doctor said no need to stitch, but need to jab. I panicked again, jab on the finger??? Dem pain wei. But the doctor said jab on my arm, tetanus jab. Oh, I felt relieve. After bandaging my finger, she asked me to always point the finger upwards. She added on, “One Malaysia ma”. I swt. AL jokingly said luckily is not the third finger that kena cut.

Doctor gave me antibiotic, pain killer, anti-swelling medicines, and most of all, a half-day MC. Woot! I didn’t ask for it, the doctor gave me one.

Now I realize that the index finger is very very important, especially I am right handed. I cant hold a pen, cant hold chopsticks, cant hold knife etc. So when I am ordering food I need to think back n forth i.e easy to eat with just one hand, no seafood, no eggs etc.
Furthermore, I cant click properly on the mouse, heavily relying on my third finger, until one time my third finger cramp. I even use my third finger to type. Now, my third finger very tired lor.

Bathing time is the most horrific part, I have to wrap my hand with plastic bag to prevent water from sprinkling to my wound. Wash my face with one hand, apply soup with one hand. Oh gosh, what a difficult task.
Today when I went to the clinic to change the dressing, doctor open the dressing and there was a little bit of blood still flowing out. Sigh, I guess the wound must be really deep.

Tonight I need to wash hair somemore, I have no idea how am I going to do that. PY suggested that I go to salon and wash hair. I think that is a good idea. Will think about it.

I hope that my wound will heal by Saturday coz I have a makeup job on Sunday morning. I cant afford not to hold the brushes properly.

it was just weird

Boy boy and I were having dinner in Sushi Tei, we were seated in front of the sushi conveyer belt. While waiting for our last dish to be served, we saw a lady at the counter has some bad taste of fashion: polka dots shorts, transparent sleeveless top with black bra showing and a bit plus-size. Her back was facing us but from the side of her she was around my age.

Both of us were criticizing how bad the lady’s taste was, and being a plus-size, her big thigh was so obvious with her shorts, and her bucket-waist was also obvious with her transparent top. I am not discriminating plus-size people but the fashion sense of this girl. Some plus-size ladies dress very elegantly one ok. This is not the main topic.

While we were giggling and looking at the lady (she was at the counter quite long), the guy staff (the one who make sushi or whatever behind the conveyer belt) saw and maybe heard our conversation and he smiled at me. Then I was a bit malu already.

Boy boy didn’t notice the guy staff’s reaction and he kept on criticizing the lady. Then the guy staff looked at me and asked, “so, what’s your comment on it?” signaling the lady. My face straight away turned red and said, “no la, nothing”. Then that guy laughed. Dem paiseh (‘malu’) lar.

Boy boy didn’t know that the guy was talking to me and he still continue looking at the lady and comment. I was abit embarrased already coz that staff kept on listening to us condeming people.

When I told boy boy about it, he said I should have ask the guy back, “what’s your comment then?” You go ask him yourselves.

Resident Evil: Afterlife

I have been a small fan (not the die hard type) of the RE series, coz I love to watch Milla Jovovich kicks @$$. Actually I love to watch movies with a lead actress can kick @$$. So, I was eager to watch it, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I only got to watch it yesterday.

My parents and bro had watched the movie and told me that do not waste my money for it. Even though the ticket is RM6, it is not worth it. But me being a fan, I don’t care, still insisted that I watch, and I am glad that I did.

At the start of the movie, I got to see lots of Alice clones in action. Her body-hugging suit with her tied-back ponytail fits her character perfectly. I think there is no one can replace Milla as Alice, coz she IS Alice. Even after Milla gave birth, her body still is hot.

After that starting scene, the story started to slow down. But who the heck cares about the storyline. One thing that is disappointing to me is that she lost her T-virus ability, so she is back to normal human, cant do anymore terror terror stuffs. Hmm…..I wish she could get back her T-virus ability in the following series. However, Wiki said that Alice might still have the T-virus ability coz she has no injury after crashing from the plane à regeneration ability?

Then, there are some scenes that look like Matrix slow movement bullets-avoiding scenes. Even the unnamed Nemesis (the big guy with a mosterous axe) waved his axe has some slow movement to it. This Nemesis was really farnie lor, showed up for 10minutes then died liao. So lousy. Give Alice and Claire some monsters that could not be killed with a gun!!!

At the end credit, Jill Valentine made a short appearance. But she looked totally different from RE 3. This time she has blond long hair tie into a pony tail, which is totally different, I couldn’t recognize her at first.

Let’s hope the director, Milla’s husband wont take too long to release RE 5.

Grumps - Plaza Kelana

On a Sunday night, bro was lonely as dad n mum went for a dinner with friends. So Boy boy and I picked him up and went to Plaza Kelana for some porky affair. Plaza Kelana looks dark from the outside, but the parking space was brightly lit, and there were ample parking space, which I like.

While walking towards the Grumps, we noticed that there are a lot of restaurant here in this place. Maybe we can try out other restaurants next time. We entered Grumps through the back door and the restaurant was not packed. We found ourselves a cubicle. We decided to share the food since the pork knuckle is for 2 person.

Grumps Crispy Pork Knuckle (RM38.90). The skin was really crunchy, love crunchy skin. The pork has some porky taste, slight one, still tolerable coz the taste can be masked by the apple sauce.

P9043927

Cheesy Crumbed Pork Loin (RM22.90). The pork loin were fried with bread crumbs, it was slightly crunchy. The pork loin meat was a bit tough though. We were looking for the cheese but couldnt find, dont know where it was. The mushroom sauce was really good and they gave lots of mushroom too, we dipped the plate clean.


Apple Crumble (RM8.90). The nuts on top of the apple crumble tasted a bit like 'lao fong' (masuk angin). If the nuts are more crunchier, it would be much better coz the apple fillings were very nice, sweet and slightly sour.

P9043929

Not a cheap dinner, but it worth another visit to try out other dishes. I am eyeing on their Osso Busso, not many restaurant offer this.

The set lunch they offer is really value for money, can give it a try.
