Tada!

Tuka template sempena new year! Which is why I tutup jab blog.

Though, I don't particularly like this green color. Tapi it is clean and simple and I like its retro pic. So perhaps I will test it out a while. And if my eyes just can't stand the green, I will change it. Took it from a lovely site, that have all sorts of beautiful templates. Though I did change the girl sitting coquettishly at the header from blonde to brunette. Because I'm a brunette! So its kinda like me, sitting in front of a computer, minus boobs that big.

So in the mean time, the link list will not be filled out yet. As penat la nak duk add satu2. Tunggu confirm and by then bits by bits.

Oh!

Yesterday decided to go to KLCC alone and catch a UK movie called "Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging". I always like UK movies, they have a fun sense of humour. And their movie is not too preachy. And I was right, it was hilarious. This movie is basically a tween movie about girl (Georgia) like boy, but boy like someone else but kinda like her too. You get the drift. Its kinda like Mean Girls, UK version.

Though I do think at times I feel way too old to watch this kinda movie (it is produced by Nickelodeon! Gad! I felt old when I saw that!), but the movie had its high moments. It was hilarious to see the kissing lessons. By the end of the kissing lessons the girl and the boy are covered by saliva. Saliva-ville!!! Yeuch!. And of course the sorta silly moments usually made by girls trying to impress boys.


I also like that the 'heroine' is just your typical girl next door. And when she turned gorgeous, it is a very stunning transformation. Tak la macam "She's All That", masa tak lawa because only she is wearing some frumpy clothes and glasses. Gah!

Also, I finally watched "Shaun of the Dead".



What? Yes, yes. I know as someone who loves zombie movies, your freakness is not complete without watching the hilarious "Shaun of the Dead". Oh and I was laughing and jumping. Yeah yeah. I still have that weird habit of jumping up and down whenever I watch a particularly..... what's the word? Exhilarating, spine tingling? When you know the monster is right behind that door and the girl is opening that door. Ah! So usually, that particular moment makes me jump up and down.

Oh, but I love this movie. Though it does have a lot of reference to British humour which I don't know, but its so side-splittingly funny. Favorite scene is that acting lessons on how to be a zombie as I like Di character. When watching, I kept on thinking, she is sooo familiar. Movie over and few clicks at IMDB.com makes me realize she is the droll Sara in Reaper. Heh. No wonder.

Well, this movie makes me all excited to watch for Simon Pegg other movie "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People" The trailer looks fun. Though I do hope they would not make it preachy la yek. Eh, but it had been released yek?

Not enough of a bargain

So I read that Malaysian Film Producers Association is proposing to up the price of Hollywood movie at the cinema at double the price.

Wow! That is just preposterous.

First of all, I do understand they want to protect local filmmakers. But putting the price at RM20 per ticket is kinda ludicrous.

It would seems like instead of protecting the local filmmakers, they are punishing moviegoers for not making the 'right' choice. There are all kinds of outrage, and some even avowed to avoid local movies altogether if this proposal is being made into reality.

Maybe they just up it to a few ringgit, is a bit OK (not more than half!!). It would give local filmmakers an advantage. Or try to increase their screening time, meaning, usually it is around 2 to 4 weeks that a local movie got its screen time at the local cinema. Some I notice only 2 weeks or less! Words of mouth on how good a local movie is kinda a slow momentum around here... Like I heard about a movie that is good, pastu bile nak tengok, not shown anymore! So they should actually increase it.

And of course the usual argument, make better movie! Which in our local filmmakers defense, they had heard us plea and gave us quite quality film even though with some holes in the middle. Though believe me, some just continue to spurn out nonsense. I watched Cicakman at cinema dulu and regretted it til my dying day for spending such an amount of time and money at such rubbish. And they expect us to go and see that sequel? Ugh. (Tho I don't really hate its soundtrack... kuar topic!)

I read some US study that shows, people are going to the movies while cutting on other leisure or entertainment activities during recession such as in the depression times because it is an affordable entertainment to be had and of course that feel good feeling. Increasing the price when times are getting tough just seems like punishing local viewers who also continue to watch local and Hollywood movies. And it would certainly make the 'underground pirated' clans clap their hands in glee.

Jeeeezzz. There are some movies I would fork out rm20 for Hollywood or not Hollywood, and I notice ramai je duk kelompok at local movie. Sometimes I really doubt it that it is the viewer faults. Kalo camnih, 'acquiring' je la yek.

Nak frolick, frolick

So I am at work today.

The mood in the office is a holiday one. The one who didn't get holiday are boringly poring over programming or systems. Of course not for long, as the connection here decided itself that it should be on holiday mood too, as it keep on doing its disappearance act.

It's very boring when you open a system and it keeps on getting disconnected ok. Make you feel like just packing up and go back home and play with my cat.

What's your plan for the 3 days holiday?

Nothing much for me. A whole lot of kemas-ing rumah and probably a movie later on with some japanese food. I kinda missed going out alone. So thinking of doing it alone nanti. Tataw lagi biler. Hehehe.

Ingatkan nak post gamba Melaka. But I left my camera at home. Nanti la. Nak kena edit jugak tu.

Haih. Malasnye. Nanti la update lagi. Jom lepak!

Congratulations to Ja and Remy

frameJaM

Gon, Seri and I (and also Seri's cousin) make a day trip to Ja's wedding last Saturday. Fuh. 10 hours in the car. Gon the driver mesti balik weng je rase.


Ja looked sweet but of course she still retain her 'kebrutalan' even on her wedding days. *groans* Everybody during tepung tawar was laughingly asking the pengantins to look ahead and smile and be still for the cameras. Hoho. Bole tak the groom duk kumat kamit kumat kamit mulut membebel while the bride siap angkat2 tangan lagi bercakap dengan orang while on the wedding dais tengah orang nak tepung tawar. Hehehe. Takpe. Sebab itu memang MekJa. Tapi masih sweet ok. Huhuhu.

So after few shots of pics, dapat jugak gamba die org yang ala-ala ayu. Yeay! Anyway the food was delish, daging adalah sangat sedap. Wooo... woooo. *lapar dah plak*

SDC10782

So on the way back we decided to singgah la kejab Ipoh. Sebab semua dalam kereta itu kepingin sizzling mee kat Jusco KC. It is not exactly as what I remembered it. But probably because of my fond memories of this sizzling mee, I just over exaggerate the delish taste in my mind. But last Saturday, I found it a bit cair and the egg ohhhh.... the egg had turned to fried egg. Before this the egg was delishly bubbling merrily whenever we brought the sizzling mee tray to our table. But now its just a boring fried egg. Bah! Takpe. Masih sedap.

SDC10803

Huhuhu, well we were laughing when we reached KC. There are a many bittersweet memories there. Gohan and I were wondering how the heck during uni days, we manage to spend 1 whole day there, without getting bored. Then keep on going back weekend after weekend, frequenting the same shops, looking at the same things. Huhuhu. I also wondered that its a miracle that the whole lot of UTP students are not wearing the same things as everyone else. Though I did remembered that most of the girls are wearing the shoes from Vincci or Nose at KC and we always would spot some UTPian girls wearing the the same shoes we bought there.

Ah well.

Macam la sekarang very shopping savvy pon. Hehe, but I guess we would be hard pressed to find somebody wearing the same shoes that we bought.



p/s: Gamba-gamba selebihnyer ade at my fotopages.

Its not just this

Perbuatan Jerit cabul hak asasi kanak-kanak

KUALA LUMPUR 21 Dis. – Tindakan pertubuhan tidak berdaftar, Jaringan Rakyat Tertindas (Jerit) menggunakan kanak-kanak dalam programnya di Bangunan Parlimen minggu lalu, mencabuli hak asasi golongan tersebut.

Pengerusi Lembaga Penduduk dan Pembangunan Keluarga Negara (LPPKN), Tan Sri Zaleha Ismail berkata, ia bukan sahaja melanggar Akta Kanak-Kanak 2001 malah menyalahi Konvensyen Hak Kanak-Kanak yang diamalkan di seluruh dunia.

Bekas Menteri Perpaduan Negara dan Pembangunan Masyarakat yang bertanggungjawab mencetuskan idea penggubalan Akta Kanak-Kanak 2001 berkata, hak yang digariskan di bawah undang-undang dan konvensyen itu tidak hanya tertakluk kepada kanak-kanak sekolah rendah tetapi meliputi bawah 18 tahun.

“Kanak-kanak ada hak asasinya sendiri. Sesiapa sahaja termasuk ibu bapa atau mana-mana pertubuhan yang menggunakan kanak-kanak dengan membawa mereka ke majlis seperti yang dilakukan oleh Jerit adalah satu perbuatan mengeksploitasi kanak-kanak,” katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Herm, they should also be concerned regarding children being used to ask for donations for charity. It pains me every time seeing kids asking for donation for certain charity or school or badan in the sweltering heat or around midnight walking from shop to shop, table to table or patron to patron asking to buy a certain product in the name of charity.

Especially during school days. But nothing is ever said for them.

Diet Pftthhhhhhh..... (sambil makan ayam goreng)

During the past months, I had been dieting. Intensely. Just to get into that wedding dress. My effort was rewarded as I manage to not look so pudgy and gabak in wedding dress. My baju kahwin also needs to be re-altered quite considerably due to this, and one baju tak sempat nak realter which cause it to look like baju pinjam. Ugh. Tapi it looked fine enough la. And you all seen the after pictures kan. Before picture? I was too depressed to take any pictures of meself. Hahaha.

Anyway, my dieting consisting of eating almost healthy food, thwarting the evil complex carbohydrates which I love dearly and reducing my food intakes. The first 2 months was pure torture cause those who knew me, knows I can wipe off 3 plates of food easily. However aging women (semuanye aging la kan, mane de immortal) all around have to admit that as they grow older, their metabolism sucks more, so food intake needs to be controlled. So there I was, not chewing lettuce nor carrot stick, but lunching solely on manga and jambu. Sampai rase nak pengsan pon ade.

Before other health fanatics shakes their fist at me, I do exercise too. Of course I know that dieting is not enough. *scoffs scoffs*

My aim is not to be anorexic nor to look like Charlize Theron. I set realistic aims which is at arr.. well my realistic aim is to shed off 5kg. So after that aim is satisfied, what is 3 kg more right. Then that aim is satisfied. Then what is 2 kg more right. So, I lost around 10 kg in about 3 or 4 months of usaha diet dan exercise.

I am beginning to think like an anorexic and it scares my fiance. Sampai cincin yang dah dibeli pon longgar ok. But I am not that afraid, as I know that an anorexic is a one thing I will never be. During that 'diet' pon I allowed myself some downtimes, I eat rice everyday. Just reduce the intakes. I still eat chocolates dengan banyaknyer. I decline myself from chips though. And I still enjoyed fast food and steaks and chicken chops and carbs quite indulgently. Just afterwards I exercise like mad.

But also during that period lah macam orang mengidam kan. Macam-macam la tetiba nak but I said to myself, nanti dulu. Therefore I think I can let go somewhat and begin to indulge meself quite normally again, cuma just watch more closely and maintain exercising (which I haven't done yet in a while) because I do like to see my somewhat slimmer self in the mirror and I love being able to fit into jeans without considerable breathing exercises. Though I do find afterwards, that I can't eat as much as I used too. Also that I kinda like salad. Sometimes salads lagi sedap dari the main course. Apakah~

Hurmph. No matter. So the list of foods yang kegianan kengidaman yang perlu dan mahu dipenuhi.

KFC Meltz Done
Sausage ESSO letak banyak2 relish Done
Wendy's milkshake Had a taste, didn't like it too much. I may try its burger later.
McDonald Milkshakes. Milkshakes are evil.
Prosperity Burgers.
Chillies Lamb Shoulder
KFC Snack Plate. Tanpa dikongsi dan dilapah sehingga licin termasuk la kulit ayam.
Fruity's Strawberry Cake
Burger King Whopper
Onion Rings
Nasi Lemak Bekfes with paru goreng yang sedap lagi ranggup.
Nasi Lemak City Garden
Nasi Lemak Mali Done tapi I don't know la, I went last time, gile tak sedap.
Domino's Pizza eaten while watching a movie at home.
Chiken Hartz Buffet. Hahahaha.
ABC Cekelat. Only in JB. Kak Chics jangan jeles.
Yong Tau Fu yang nyaman (bak kate orang Sarawak). Only in JB also. Hehe, tapi last time masin sikit. Nak lagiiiii....
Lidah masak pedas. Haha. Terpengaruh tengok belog orang. Nak rase la jugak.
Bento box set at Kiku Zakura or Kampachii or mana2 lagi la restoran jepon.
Megi goreng.

And I think banyak lagi laa. These are only what I could think off. Haih nanti kan sesia je diet kan? Hehehe... maybe maybe. Tapi you would do the same jugak kan?

p/s: Tapi agak cuak la kalo naik. Takpe takpe. I know I can't relentlessly did that strict regime of dieting macam dulu, but we can control and try to maintain ye?

Life Goes On

When I was a wee girl, I thought to myself that at 25 I should be a VERY grand lady, where dining and wining (ala sparkling drinks je) is a norm in life. There would be a few movie stars personas worshipping the ground I walked on while I pined away for someone truly awesome like James McAvoy (hihu) or Cary Grant (masa die muda2). If the guy is a small country prince is even more awesome. Anak2 datuk tak main la OK masa time berangan. If you can dream, dream big right?

Berangan over kan masa kecik2. What I want to be in term of career is of course somewhat vague. But from all the movie air stewardesses seems to have a lot of fun in my 9 year old mind so I used to think I would like to be that so movie stars entering the plane can easily notice me and worship the goddess I should be. Of course the notion of being an air stewardess is never serious as I continue to be short and get motion sickness very often. And of course it was deemed uncool among the 'smart' kids to be 'pramugari', so it is entirely just a fanciful whims then, though I do suspect even nowadays that air stewardess still get to have lots of fun (even more fun than what my innocent 9 year old would think eh).

Well, so my ambitions seems to be always somewhat vague, even today. But a guy that should worshipped the ground I tread upon is always in my mind. I dreamt of love in a grand scale when I was small. I declared (in my mind but still quite loudly) that no ordinary love would settle in my life. And always, always... I would end my dream as such most fairy tale end their stories. "So the maiden marry her prince and thus they live happily ever after".

How laughable. How pitiful pon my dreams are. So years later , past 25. Here I am. Certainette not an air stewardess. Most certainly not living a grand life. Fine dining and wining make me uncomfortable. And I certainly cannot see how any movie star even the local independent cikai made by college students one, would notice me much less fall for me. And love stories in my life, though some are somewhat quirky and some are just blergh, but nothing really extraordinary happened or do not happened. So my life somewhat summarize goes on boringly like studied, worked, get married.

So perhaps my 9 year old self would wrinkle her nose in disgust when she saw me now. But I got a husband whom I believe love me wholeheartedly in spite of all my failings and whinings. Its no love in a grand scale but it is somewhat daunting in itself as new experience goes. I was then thinking, so there, a chapter close. The fair maiden marries and ..... . Happily ever after does not translate to life. How much more time do I need to stress this.

I was thinking, what is next? What is in store for my life except kids, work, more kids, more works? Oh... I guess I am hanging by the little things in life between mundane life routines, work and kids. The hanging out with friends. The weekend outing with the one you loves. The laughing on the antics of your own demented self and others. The hope of getting little wish lists fulfilled. And dreams. Oh... let me be 50 and never get tired of dreaming.

Picture worth a thousand words?

Really? But I do not think that it translate to camwhoring pics, right? Ah well, I would still love word laden post more I think.

Hehehe... Sebab I had bought myself a spanking new camera as part of the wedding hantaran, it would be totally useless if I didn't put some bad photos in this blog wouldn't it. And of course I know, Dila would love it. (Kamon, you like post yg ade gamba kan...)

So went around town today, for some food tasting around Bintulu and some shopping. Decided at last to bring along my camera and snap pics like some camwhoring crazy bloggers. Hahahaha. Jahat.

SDC10545

Teh C Ais Special. Only in Sarawak. Tasted like air kathira. Blergh, pelik la. Ade syrup pandan in teh ais. I like Sarawak because of inside its Ice Lemon Tea are actually lemon and not lime. Tapi pahit sangat la orang di sini buat lemon tea.

SDC10550

Mee Kolok Sup. A bit bland. Taste like megi ayam. Patut pon orang Sarawak yang I know suke megi ayam. Now I know da reason lorrr.

SDC10552

Mee Kolok 'kering'. This one is nice I think, from the 1 suap that I ate. I think the meat played a huge part in its taste. Without it, its kinda bland. Maybe that's why the non-halal version that used pork is very much gushed about.

SDC10553

Chicken mushroom pau. The bakery there is noted for its delicious egg tarts, steaming bun and soft tasting bread. And of course you know I love pastries and breads with a passion. The memories of spring onion chicken bun from that bakery can make me drool. (Tapi yang tu tak amik gamba plak ) The pau here is not bad. But you can have only 1 I think. Because the chicken mushroom sauce is a bit thick and the bread macam kenyal sikit. Not the best I ever tasted, but OK enough la.

The best pau I ever tasted is still at a kampung in Ipoh. Nobody ever recommended it, we just happened upon it by chance. I doubt we would ever find it again. The best pau chicken I ever tasted anywhere. My husband and I would love to go to Ipoh and find it again.

SDC10556

At the same bakery, I bought egg tarts. Delish enough with enough filling to fill the insatiable. Kurang manis sikit je I think.

Oh and of course the spot of shopping I did here is just a tiny one. I had to buy a book! Had to! The book that I brought here which is Emily of New Moon had finished being read by moi and I was feeling pretty down when I realized I only had 1 chapter to go last night.

As I had been contemplating to buy this book lama dulu dah. Beli aje la. Itu pon took forever. I was tempted to buy 3 books! This book, that somewhat new Sophie Kinsella book and a compilation of horror stories by Horowitz. Tapi macam la tadek kedai buku je kat KL. Buat ape la nak beratkan beg. So I bought the cheapest one, and yeay! This book that I bought here is cheaper than the ones I had been eyeing at several bookstores in Peninsular. Wheee~ (Nasib ade diskaun kan).

The other thing that I bought is tikar Sarawak. Hehe. For our somewhat imaginary new tah bile home. Nope, tak amik gamba.

Gamba wedding? Ah. Tiada. You can head to my husband blog for 1 or 2 of the pictures though.

Maybe you would like this joget lambak sambil berpantun di malam gendang (bermukun) scenes. Its a sorta tradition there. Lively. Lagi lively kalau pukul 12 malam. Tapi I had already been asleep by then, kata esok nak bersanding.

Nah gamba orang yang berpantun dan bergendang. The black chick (somewhat) is called "Mak Gendang". In reality adalah she-he. Tapi suara kalah perempuan merdu die. This pic is taken from my husband camera and edited somewhat crudely by moi.

dlaphoto

Adalah perlu jugak amik gamba abang-abang ipar and adik dipaksa joget lambak kan. Tapi asik duk pandang mak gendang je. Susah betul nak dapat face shot.

SDC10528

Ewah-ewah.

Hehe. Ok. Yar, adalah belog ini tidak akan menjadi camwhoring blog because I never could bear to put my up close shot of my face in here. Takpe, mari kite akhiri blog post with some cuteness. Here are my in law's kittens with its mother looking balefully up at me while I am snapping this.

SDC10538

Rase cam nak kidnap je yang oren tu masuk dalam handbag, bawak balik KL. Geram.

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

Oh...

Been so busy the past days before cuti, that I didn't get to schedule my other blog posts. Ah well. The memes and the photos are at my laptop at home so lagi la malas hapdet.

Still at in laws house at Bintulu. Currently am using my husband laptop while he is snoring beside me and the battery is just about out. Will be back on Thursday, but will still be holiday-ing. So malas mode still rampaging on.

Later. Adieu.

The Generation Y tag

1. They spend around RM300-RM500 a month on entertainment and leisure
Hoh. Kaya tul. I never keep track of my expenditures, but I am pretty sure it is around RM200 a month. Lebih sikit je mula la kena ikat perut time lunch.

2. Their love for shopping has earned them the label of "dream consumers"
Maybe maybe. But I am not too excited on shopping ever since this whole getting married business. Sekali sekala when the mood strikes eh.

3. On a good day, they hang out at designer coffee outlets and indulge in good food, which easily comes to RM15 per meal
My boss likes to pay for our coffee at Starbucks. He usually held meetings there, so 'designer' coffees for free! But I never really like coffee so I don't frequent this place. But I do like to indulge in good food occasionally and it does surpass RM15 per meal. (Helllo... nasi ayam for 2 pon dah lebih RM20 ok sekarang)

4. Many own the newest handphones, equipped with the latest technology. Doesn't matter if they are not technologically savvy enough to utilize all the functions; what is important is that they own something at par with what their peers have.
Not really. I just like the design of a phone. I never care about 3g ke, bluetooth ke, because honestly, I don't use it. So I choose the cutest phone with the most affordable price.

5. Two-thirds know the price of an iPod, but three-quarters have no idea what a carton of milk costs.
I know how much milk cost OK. And I do know somewhat the price of an Ipod too.

6. They have hundreds of illegally downloaded songs
*grins*

7. One in 20 spends more than RM200 a month on mobile phone bills
Nope. I spent about RM30 - Rm50 per month. For prepaid. Yeah, people don't call me much nor I call them.

8. A number of them have more than one phone
Hoh. 1 handphone pon asik tertinggal and rarely by my side. If 2? Ish ish ish.

9. Many do not read the newspapers, or watch the TV news
I like to read the Star on Sunday sebab ade cartoon strips and ruangan advise, hehehe. I watch news only when there are some things that piqued my interest such as watching the Taj terrorist attack live.
10. They are heavily dependent on 'helicopter parents' who hover protectively over their offspring
Ar? Ye ke? I don't think so. Though I do think sometimes I depend on my husband too much. Die la rajin nak service kereta and bayar insurance and whatsnot. Which remind me of my car insurance that I need to renew.

So, now I will officially start the tagging game. Hereby, I tag:
Sheema Aku taw ko bosan
SeriAs Kamon seri jangan malas.
Adek. Hehehehehe
Dueng (sebab Dueng and Adek mesti ade strong views about this also...)

Ah 4 je la.

Points in paragraph

Itching to blog with no apparent topic in head.

Will be going to Bintulu for the 'bertandang' session on the 4th of December and will be gone for about a week. Fear I will not be blogging in about a week too as I am not too sure on the internet connection there.

However, prolly I will schedule some meme I owe from Sue and also a few memes I just like.

My husband brought his PS to the house. Just gotten myself acquainted with Guitar Heroes (without es or with?). Kinda see how you can get yourself addicted to it. Didn't play it much as my bro-in-law was hogging it. Macam best je kalau beli guitar die.

Even I am kinda hooked on Piah Zadora, hehe. But most of the time, I have no ideas which blogger she meant. Macam baca Pancaindera nye blind item rasenyer.

I feel fat. Need to start eating healthy / exercising or whatever again. (Tetapi milkshakes di Wendy masih belum di rasa... hmmmmmmmmm )

Last Friday had a sorta company dinner at Hotel Imperial, then after that I had to rush straight to Pavilion for dinner with my family at Tony Romas (had the most delicious salad dish yang sampai sekarang leave my tastebud tingling for more). Then on Saturday, went for my project team BBQ feast then rushed for Ranhill company dinner. Now you know why I feel fat. Maybe I will update the pics of those artist tomorrow. Didn't bring my camera.

I am still feeling sluggish. Ohhh... macam tingin nak main Guitar Heroes pulak.

Ok lah. Cukup panjang la tuh. Kalu rajin I'll update more.

Kembali

The only gamba bride amik yek. Tadek masa nak camwhoring. Taken after wedding dah habis, before wiping the make up off.

The wedding went well. I was "gorjes" (quote seri's word). Cewah. Bole tak puji diri sendri. Hahahaha.

Anyway, it all went well, almost. The cake was disaster OK. Hahha. I ordered a 3 tier cake, but the top tier fell down in a splat. I only knew about it after the wedding, though I had my suspicion semasa upacara memotong kek ituh. Tapi time tu, you can't sweat the little thing la kan. Kang muka bride macam Bride of Frakenstein pulak.

Ni gamba kek yang time die tengah disaster. Kesian tul. Rugi taw. But my sis proceeded to repair the kek with bunga. Haih. Rase nanti lenkali balik JB macam nak komplen je kat kedai tu. My mom cakap patutnye bawak gi kedai kek yang jatuh tu, saying that your support thingies doesn't work nak ganti. Huhuhu. Takpeler. Mende dah lepas, my auntie pon sponsor cake. (Mesti my auntie hangin je). See the below for the cakes disaster chronology.

These cake pics are sponsored by my 2 pupu yang manyak menolong masa wedding

Semasa kek masih cun

Splat!

My sis put on some flowers to cover the cacat cela. But it still looks OK afterwards, and is quite delicious.

Anyway, wanting to say thank you for all who came and also those gives 'berkat' (pressies) to my family and us. We appreciate those especially yang jauh from KL, Nilai dan tang mana2 lagi la that came for our kenduri and shared in our joy on that special day (Macam ayat dalam Hallmark kad pulak.)

Thanks also especially to Sheema kerna menjadi pengapit dengan jayanyer. Hahaha. Also kepada Rani jua.

Yang lain-lain tu thanks banyak2 la kan, for the wonderful pictures, your presence, your well wishes, lambaian2 yang menggelakkan aku (I was not a graceful bride), dan segala pertolongan yang dihulur.

Thanks again. Also sorry if there is any kekurangan semasa majlis. Hope you guys had a nice time.

Okeh. Ucapan terima kasih dah habis. Kena buat kerja dan kira annual leave. Anyway, I like this pic. Credit to Iyayy.


Updated:

Meh letak my second favorite pic from Iyayy, featuring the bridegroom (kasik previu sikit bridegroom, kesian terlupa). Thanks Iyayy! (walaupon ko tak baca belog aku)

Its my birthday!

But how unbirthdayish I feel!

Ye la, kate the BIG day tomorrow kan. I almost forgot my birthday, and that's a rare occurence. So with henna still damp on my hands, I am writing this today, to remind myself I am 26 today. Man. 25 sounds better aight. But I will like it better when I am 27 I think, as I like that number.


Hahaha. Okay. There's a lot things to do. Hish.

Hmmmm. I do not think I would get my 1001 Nights of Snowfall. :(

What's ahead...

kasut-1

This blogger may or may not be posting in about a week. She is busy trying to be a bride. (kenapa ade trying...)


Posting will resume depending on the internet connection back at home and how hectic it would be. Safe journey to friends heading this way (JB) this Saturday. Hope to see you there! I will be the jittery one wearing a beaded baju kurung trying in vain to make sure her dress would not be torn asunder by her usual blunderness and blurness.

Until the next post, this bride-to-be wishes you a good week.

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Say what?

On the way back from Shah Alam, I heard "Love is only a Feeling" from Darkness.

I still hate that song.




p/s: Shit. Banyaknyeeer keje aku. Kenapa kalau nak cuti je, mesti keje banyak. Time takde sibuk nk cuti tadek plak. Haih.

The last week of being called Cik

The wild bachelorette night turned out to be a staid event. Ala. Macam we are the type to get wasted and kissed some random guys on the street pon. (That would be cool, but bukan senang nak cari kissable random guys). The main thing was that the girls get together and had slumber late night talking about idiotic but occasionally some serious stuffs. Man. Getting older kinda sucks. Even trying to have fun seems to be such a chore.

This weekend will be the big day. As so many people reminded me.

It felt weird to get married. Life goes on smoothly. The sun will rise and shine. It occasionally rains. Only I would have a man in my life who would be responsible to gimme some lunch money. Hahaha!

Ugh, but selagi coding ni I can't do, selagi tu la I can't seems to focus on the wedding things. Dah malas keje. Nak cuti.

"Semua dah siap ke?"

A question often directed to me these past few weeks. That question make me panic taw. But I gotten decidedly calmer when people asked me that as time comes nearer. Insya Allah, if God willing, hope everything will turn out OK. There are something needs to be settle or tweak if you might, but nothing really dastardly turrible if its not there.

Thank you for the well wishes and congratulations. Another round of thank you will make it round next week. So prelims thank you dahulu.

I will be missing my single life. I like my single life. Kalau boleh nak single jeeeeeee. With the occasional dating. Hehe. Tapi life is not suppose to stay the same. People are suppose to change, evolve but not necessarily improving ... but change none the less.

Hmmmm.... does this mean, I would have even less time to watch my tv series? That kinda blows.

Asking for rights

Okay. I am a little woozy from gadding around town today... so maybe I am not making sense. So bear with me as I untangle my thoughts.

There are some people that are talking about gay rights. These are the issue that the Americans face nowadays because of the Prop 8 thingies. Those who don't know, google je la ok. Malas nak explain.

Its hard for me to comment on the gay rights thingies and of course in Malaysia the issue is almost non existent. But if we would be asked like generally regarding the gay rights on how we view it, it would be kinda difficult. First of all, I am a person who believe that people should have the right to choose their own happiness and way of living as long as they do not harm others. However, I am also brought up as a Muslim where Islam prohibit same sex relationship.

I wondered if this question if being forwarded to me or you (my Muslim friends), by 2 different people of different faith, would your answer differs? Would you say, gay should have the right of marriage when you are being asked by 'omputih' who's a Christian or atheist. Or would you say, "die orang sume tu akan masuk neraka so tak peduli la ape die orang nak pon kat dunia" when you are asked by a strong practicing Muslim.

Do you 'filter' your answers by the person who asked them? There is no need for me to ask if you would need to ask yourselves the answer you believe in since I believe each of us have our own answers. But are we afraid if our answers would make us look like someone who do not believe in human right to happiness and also at the same time afraid if they would think Islam is not a tolerant religion. Or if we are afraid that people would labeled yourselves as a non believer in the holy commandments dictated by His messengers.

What my thought exactly on gay rights? Aku macam malas nak type since penat la ( Cewah... macam mengelak pulak). But that itself prolly should have a post on its own.

Fall 08 Shows : My Kinda Thoughts

Enough of wedding prep's post I say. Here is a long post on TVs series! Yeay!

This post is kinda overdue eh?

Usually I would somewhat recap or tell what shows I am gonna watch. But laziness pervades and I got kinda busy and too many people are hogging the computer at home, so it left only the laptop at work where sometimes I am too distracted to click on "New Post".

Anyhoooo... don't you guys think that this Fall 08 show is kinda dull. Last season is like series galore. Then the writers strike kinda put a damper on the whole thing which left some of my favorite shows in a convoluted storyline as the season have to be shortened and not to mention some had been mercilessly axed.

Looking at the list before seasons start, there is one or 2 that is kinda promising but nothing really make me all hype up. Well maybe 90210 because the appearance of Shannen Doherty. Also Dollhouse. But that is reserved for midseason viewing. GILER LAMA.

Thus since I do not have so much time to spare nowadays. I chose to watch these:

1. True Blood


Plot summary taken from IMDB.
The series follows Sookie Stackhouse, a barmaid living in Louisiana who can read people's minds, and how her life is turned upside down when the Vampire Bill, walks into her place of employment two years after vampires 'came out of the coffin' on national television.

Starring Anna Paquin. All it need are the words "vampire" and "Anna Paquin", I will be watching without caring whatever it is the story they throw at me. It is not that bad. Only really graphic. 5 years back, prudish me might think SATC is a really nekkid show. But compare to SATC, this show is like soft core porn flick at times. Not only I thought of that. Some guys tell me the same thing.

Aside from the consistent nekkidness, it is a pretty engaging show. It push the cliffhanger at the end of each episode a bit too hard a bit, but the storyline is kinda interesting. The vampires lore. The serial killer mystery. The twisted way the town people are really like. And Sookie story herself. It come together quite nicely.

2. Fringe


Plot summary taken from IMDB.
A television drama centered around a female FBI agent who is forced to work with an institutionalized scientist in order to rationalize a brewing storm of unexplained phenomena.

I only heard about this show after so many people rave on how incredibly marvelous this show would be coming from the creator of Alias. That same people turned out to be disappointed as the show seems to be mediocre.

I am never a fan of Alias. And I don't have any expectations of the show, so I like it. Its not the best of show. It doesn't have the "Omph" factor such as Heroes did in their first few episodes, (but hey... looked how incredibly lame it is now). But I think I like to settle with mediocre and their build up is kinda OK. Also I don't hate Anna Torv as much as other people. I think she is pretty likable and like what she brings to her character. So stop comparing her to Jennifer Garner la weh. Both are very different characters. I would think less of Abrams if he would try to emulate Sidney Bristow character again in another show.


3. 90210


Plot summary taken from IMDB.
A Kansas family relocates to Beverly Hills, where their two children adapt to the infamous social drama of West Beverly Hills High

I have to say that their premiere episode kinda sucks. The girls are ridiculously skeletal (these also include their moms), the boys are just OK excepting for the hot Rob Estes and Shannen Doherty don't look at all fine ( Remembered her in Charmed? She was incredibly hot. Hotter than the overrated Alyssa Milano). I guess I was expecting something edgy and got something totally wholesome that makes my teeth hurts.

However from episode 6 it gets a bit better. The storyline and dialogues are still lame, Jessica Stroup still looks like she weight about the same as my cat, and that Annie girl still makes me feel like I want to strangle her with a scarf. But it did improve a bit. Brownie points for that!

Not my favorite show, but it is one of the show to watch when I want some totally light and fluffy thing to watch when I am distracting myself with some other things.


4. Privileged



Plot summary taken from IMDB.
A Yale-educated journalism major reluctantly becomes a live-in tutor for two spoiled grand-daughters of a Palm Beach cosmetics business magnate.

This show is one my favorite. It is really cute and I guess I love the characters. It's the usual fluffy show, but the main characters are depicted with so much flaws that I like it when I see a character on tv that hit close to home (character wise laaa).

It is a show that is targeted at girls, so guys would rolled their eyes at this. Altogether, its a fun show and I found myself looking forward to it every week. Also Rose is totally cute. I think I am enthralled the whole episode just by watching her eyes. Never had I seen such a big expressive eyes in a real person. Macam dalam anime.

The show however do not have a bright future ahead. The ratings kinda small and there is a very probable chance that it would be canceled.


4. The Ex List


Plot summary taken from IMDB.
A woman explores all of her past relationships after a psychic tells her she's already dated her future husband.


Plot written there is not entirely correct. Its more like a woman met a pyschic who tells her that she only have 1 year left to meet and wed the man (THE ONE) she once had past romantic entanglement with. So she went and explores all of her past relationships.

The Ex List had been axed after just airing 4 episodes. I haven't even manage to watch the first episode yet when I know it had been canceled, but I decided to watch 2 episodes first. Just so my effort on acquiring this is not all in vain.

To tell you the truth, I was not very taken with the idea of this show (macam agak ludicrous), except the earlier critics seem to favor it. Watching 2 episodes so far,its a breezy , casual show. An OK show. But it seems a bit backdated. Like I said, I like a show with a little edge in it or at least very likable/interesting characters. It doesn't have both. Maybe these are the reasons they are axed so quickly?


5. Samurai Girl

Plot summary taken from IMDB.
A teenage girl tries to balance a normal life as the adopted daughter of wealthy parents with the Samurai traditions of her ancestors..

The Plot above is not entirely correct too, but I could not care less to rectify this as I am sure many of you could not care to watch this show.

OK. This is not a new series. It's more like miniseries. But I watch it together2 with all these new series. I have to say... this show macam series or movies spawned by Disney. Too many romanticized Eastern mythology with the predictable Caucasian hero. *Groans*

It's not very engaging, nor good, the dialogue are a bit painful at times. Unless you are 14, I do not think you would enjoy this. But I guess I must have a tender spot for bad show, so I just keep on watching. Or more prolly is that if I start watching a show, no matter how bad it is, I want to know the ending. Sick right? But hey... At least got 3 parts je. Brendan Fehr is still hot, thank you very much. It makes my hour and a half watching this show more bearable.



So itu ajeeer. Tapi let's not forget a whole lot of other previous series I am watching. How do I manage the time to watch it all, I have no idea myself. A lot of series, I only manage to watch 2 or 3 episodes je. But I will catch up. No worries.

The Mentalist is another new series getting rave reviews, tapi sebab aku malas la nak tengok cite depressing (kinda like procedural crime solving thingies. A bit like Psych , minus the wackiness) so I am not acquiring it. If it is on TV which I think it probably will be, maybe I''ll take a peek.

Blabbety blah blah blah...

OK. Let's get all these preparation off my chest. Sorry if you guys are getting bored, but nak cerita jugak la as this is me blog.


So, there are some things that still left unsettle. I am in panic regarding that. But it seems like I am the only one to be so. Gah! Ugh... there are still cards still need to be sent, baju to be paid and dry clean, things to be ordered and reserved and stuffs to buy. *PANIC MODE ON*


It felt like it is time went by so fast, and I can't wait for this wedding to be over. I do not particularly excited on the wedding. More on the holiday! I want long holiday! Even though the holiday may encompass preparation and crazy dealing with people of all sorts and packing and repacking.


The wedding borang is happily finished. I took a leave and went to JB with fiance to settle it. Its been a crazy running around town that whole day. The last minute saksi signing. Thank god for old classmate and nearby relative. The surat perakuan bujang needed to be obtained from ketua kampung where he is only available after lunch hour.

Also there is an incredibly garang makcik behind the counter at JAIJ yang approve borang permohonan perkahwinan ni and basically make me feel like a a petrified 8 year old kid with snot running down her nose. She basically shouted at me (not just me yee.. everybody in the room also) "Awak tak dengar ke saya marah orang lain ni. Pasal kena fotostat borang. KENAPA AWAK TAK DENGAR AND PEGI FOTOSTAT". GAH! You think I would hear what random people shouted at other people kee... dah la tak cakap dalam borang. Nor anywhere else stated that we need to provide a photostat copy. Hish. Aku pantang kena marah ni, tanpa sebab. Tapi time tu cuak je laa.


Hahaha..... And my borang dihantar just in the nick of time. Dah anta je kat makcik garang tu she said "Dah tutup" dengan kasarnye, but I quickly said "tapi tadi suruh bagi balik lepas dah betulkan balik borang ni" (which is indeed true). Terus die amik borang tu and approve and put it at the tray kakak yang akan interview candidate pengantin plak. Fuh!


Then also suddenly my HIV borang tu tetiba missing. I was baffled. I already triple checked. However, thank goodness that I also submit the salinan HIV borang which also was signed and cop by the nurse at the time. So the staffs there pon nak balik, said this was acceptable enough. Called my mom today, and seems that the imam thing is also settled, thank God too.


You know what? This post is not fun at all. I hate this post. So I am ending it with a picture of me enjoying roti kari while walking to Kotaraya at JB. Sangat best ok. Fresh out of the oven, still piping hot curry buns. Nyum Nyum. (Well, maybe just the pic of the bun)

p/s: Huh.... I don't know what else to P/S about... eh... byknye grammatical and nonsensical errors in this post. I would usually have those, but kali ni mcm over plak. Sorry la yek.. sometimes biler nak cepat my thoughts run faster than my fingers.

Oh the controversial baju...

The issue is somewhat solved. Well not entirely, but its not as disastrous as I thought it would be.

First of all, thanks all for your concern. Huhu, I am very touched indeed by all your concerns.

Well, I finally got my wedding dress. Baju kurung la more specifically. Bile cakap wedding dress, gowns and frills comes to mind.

Last Friday, I had already hardened my resolve to go and buy a new dress or beg some seamstresses to jahit me a new one. However luck as have it, come early on Saturday morning. The tukang jahit, SMS me apologizing (not profusely enough I think.. hehe) saying that she was very ill and had closed her shop for a while. (Tapi kenapa tak letak notice ek?). I was really relieved that I do not admonish her. (Kang die bakar baju aku sape nak ganti...)

She said that she will ask her husband to give me the dress on Saturday. It do not come. Then on Sunday. It do not come. Then on Monday, it do not come. I am beginning to be jittery and start thinking again on Plan B. Then yesterday, she finally gave me back the dress. Ingatkan nak tegur la, lain kali letak notice ke ape ke kan, but her husband pick an inopportune time to give me back the dress (I was in training at the moment so time tu pikir ambik, bayar, naik opis balik cepat2), so no admonishment came forward. Hurm.

(tapi I am like that, kenkadang time tu je marah lebih then I totally forgot)

Well, so I got back the dress after all eh. The dress itself was OK. The beads was nice enough, however the baju is a bit besar (SAYA SUDAH SLIM! Cewah!). Her husband did mention just call her back if any alteration or nak add beads lg kan. Tapi macam tak berani plak. Takut nanti tah bile lagi plak akan dapat the baju nanti.

So I brought it to one of the seamstress that I also upah to jahit the other wedding dress, since she seems to do quite an excellent job on that other dress.

Kiranye dah ada la solution. All ends well I guess, as soon as I got my dress and probably brought it to dry clean a bit as ade lg kesan2 chalk kat baju. Ugh.


p/s: Obama dah jadi President. None of our concern eh?


Justify Full

I am cursed!

Warning: This is a post full of expletives and swearing. If you think your sense and sensibilities might be offended, go elsewhere.

Fuck! Fuck! Double fuck! Double fuck does not even cover this. This is like a humongous loads piles of fuck waiting to just flatten you. Or already had.

The thorne of trauma in my life now is the boutique that supposedly to be handling my wedding dress had fucking dissapeared. Gah! Gah! Gah! This is a situation so fitting to panic. I want to panic. Maybe I am panicking. God! I need a paper bag to breath through.

The gist is, the dress should had siap like last weekend. But I went back to JB. So I decide to go back on Tuesday to amik the dress. Then it fucking close. Ok enough. Then I went back on Wednesday and Thursday. The light is on, but the door is locked. You also have no idea how many times I called and called but the calls went unanswered. On Thursday (yesterday), it seems like the shop is in dishevelled state. Magazines piled up in the middle of the stores. And most of the rack of clothes is gone is except for 1 or 2. I left a note. The owner didn't yet called. I came again just now and the kedai is fucking empty! Only last month I went and jalan-jalan in front of the shop it is operating per usual.

OMG! I feel like puking. I called my fiance to inform the fucked up state of this situation. I also quickly made up my mind to go to Plan B is which buy a ready made dress or sewa one. Oh God. My friends would know how I loathe to sewa a dress. And I feel I may rage on my wedding day if I have to wear a sewa dress on my freaking wedding day. Contratry to popular belief after finding the shop empty, I did not have an epic bitch moment or lose my shit right there and then. I went walking. The upside of working at Jalan TAR is there are loads of kedai kain, so I walked around in daze and walked around and around in Harrisons and Alina's like some dumbwit trying to sort through an acceptable alternative to this horrible situation.

It is too late to make a wedding dress. But it can happens via loads of money! But I couldn't find yet any acceptable kain or baju on that particular color to ganti back that baju. And I traipsed all the way to Kuala Terengganu and dragging Lini while berpeluh-peluh to search for my kain. And bukannye murah ok kain tu! And this is what happened! If I could sobs here and now, I would.

Why would the owner would do this? Apakah die sudah bangkrap and mahu tutup kedai? Wouldn't it be possible to call all her clienteles to give back their kain? And their deposit is such sungguh mahal ok for them to treat their customers as such? OMG. Adakah die pindah kedai or renovate? If that's the case wouldn't you put up some kind of note on your premise saying you had moved and such such and give your contact details or forwarding address so fellow customers would not go berserk! Takkan tak reti buat business kut. Orang jual todi pon tulis notice kalau die nak gi cuti or move elsewhere!

Or adakah die telah give up menjahit and probably say "Fuck this, I am selling all these fuckers clothes off and quitting sewing. I want to jet off travelling around the world". Or could she possibly died??? If she did, any contact number or notice of death would also be necessary kan? I do not have any sympathy if I do not know the real reason ok!!!

Fuck la kan. I am so pissed. Miranda said in SATC "There's a 'shit motherfucker, fuck shit' situation?" . This situation warrants a Shit. Motherfucker. Fuck. Shit.

Oh and save your preaches. I am here to complain and would calmly proceed to see what can be done in the next few days (and if you guys have any suggestion where or who can help us would also be very helpful). But this is the place for me to rant. And probably to my girlfriends later where we would rant together. Ugh. I need to lie down.

Pening la

Gah!

So currently I am distributing my kad kawin. And it is becoming a bother on who I want to invite and not invite or who to distribute card too. Pening laaa.

So I turned to Friendster, and that does helps a lot but not so much. I mean la kan, if somebody change their name or nick to something like "SweetGirl", ade aku pedulik ke nak click-click banyak2 names tu to check who you are. Then they choose to be all witty kekononnye and put nonsensical thing in place of schools and workplace dan tak upload gamba plak tuh. Tension.

And there's a lot of people (relatives) that I have to give by hand tapi macam tak sempat je. *Run around in panic* Gah! Gah!

Pastu kan.... kad macam tak cukup jeeeeeee. So kalau sesiapa yang tak dapat card tu and got the online version or SMS je (mmg nak kena pelangkung), mintak ampun yaa. Gomen ne. Jangan majuk2 yeee. I am prioritizing on the cards and any one of you who are getting married or had gotten married will surely understand if I said I run out of card ok. The priorities are of course the relatives, the jirans, the somewhat relatives (my BFFs) and of course those who had sent to me your wedding invitation cards.

Thus I am not actually extending an open invitation in my blog. Silly la kan. Its like inviting the whole WWW which encompasses billions. (While the reality is my readers are like less than 10). Wahahaha. Anyhow to my 10 or so readers, do drop me an email on your address for the cards.. Of course these include only for readers I know of (That also include you Jannah, I am inviting you! Drop me an email!) or people I already knew. Don't be mad if I send you the online version eh?


p/s: One ofmy BFFs just told me she can't come because of work. I am very, very, very sad! But I totally understand of course. But she'll try to make it before or after the wedding to see me in a while :) Happy!

Kitty Woe is on Me

So my fiance went to Miri for a couple a days, so I was being given temporary custodial right for our kitten.

However I totally phailed at the job as she is now at a vet under observation as she fell from the first floor to the ground floor. I was playing with her and stopped for a while. Before this she was playing around, running around madly at the first floor near the stairs. Then she stood still for a while in front of my sister's door. I took a step toward her and guess that she took it as a sign that playtime start again she went around running madly that she didn't realize the gap near the stairs and fell right through.

Oh, oh, oh. My heart breaks even remembering that horrific sight now. My brother called out "Kucing kau jatuh! Tengkuk die macam patah" (Your cat fell. Her neck looks like broken). I rushed downstairs and found her writhing around in pain, her neck looks stiff and kinda twisted. I was in sobs. I took her upstairs and lie her on top of me. She somehow twist back her neck and still yowling painfully. Then I took her back to my room and call a vet. He told me what to do and I rubbed her with gamat and bundled her up in towel and kain batik. For a while, I was just staring at this tiny wisp of a kitten fearing that she would die right in front of me.

Somehow she just lie there so still that I keep on checking if she was still breathing. She make a sudden movement once in a while, but it is apparent all she wants to do is lie still. I guess I was in tears so much that my sister persuaded my brother in law to give me a ride and brought her to a 24 hour vet. Where she is still there now :(

She had been given X Ray and blood test and so far things had been good. But not better. Her movement is still shaky, she is so stressed out that things had not improve and we are fearing she might have some spinal injury that may cause her hind leg to not function properly and the doctor tell me with all her serious face "If that happens, the prognosis is not good". My heart dropped further.

I am so so so sad. Perhaps not many people understand why anyone would pay so much or worry so much about a pet, and I only have her for a couple of weeks. But she is so precious and lovable. She feels like family :(

Ok. I am even in tears writing this post. My fiance is not so much :P He said it is weird to see me yang hati so kental to cry. Gah! What do men knows. Hahaha. (Tah2 die pon nangis ok... )

Anyway let's hope she gets better aight! Pray for her and cross your fingers! We will be going to the vet later on to see her again.



Oh and her name is Fasha Sandha. Hahaha.

I am a glorified freeloader and loving every moment of it

Boss nak blanjer dinner tapi kena tolak sebab kena jumpa photographer hari ni. I can't postpone again la kan? ( Dah postpone before as kena stayback at office for a while) Nanti orang cakap janji Melayu and even though I am Melayu and usually I am on time and try my damnedest to be there, so tu pon janji Melayu jugak tu. Cuma yang ni adalah, janji Melayu yang bukan hampesh. Hahahaha... tak masuk sense.

Gah! SO I MISSED OUT CHILLIES FOR PELITA MAMAK? You! Yes, you yang komplen bile I cakap ade dinner FREE. Tremble for your life (or ears) tonight.

:P . Pelita makanan die tak best.

Owh... btw. Bestnye able to meet again the lovely buddies. Can we do that every week? Hahaha. Susah la kan especially nowadays everyone seems to be so busy. I am so sad! But rase lupa trouble in life when meeting up with the girls again.

And at least I manage to singgah at Yong's open house on Friday to distribute my wedding invitations. Before stepping onto Yong apartment complex, I took a deep breath. Then after stepping out. I let out a big breath that makes me dizzy with relief and.... and ape? It's always hard to meet up with old friends again. Especially those that we haven't seen in the longest time. To put up a smiling and jolly facade. And especially to those that had seen your life topsy turvy. Or the one that make your life topsy turvy?

But like I said meeting up with the girls and laughing like a hyenas ignoring all disapproving eyes seems like the next best thing to receiving a billion dollar or perhaps mind shattering sex? Hahaha . But the gist in this paragraph is, all it takes is for some really uproarious laughing and all is well with MY world now.

p/s: Pelita makanan die tak best.

Glowing

There's a scene in the Stardust movie that I love, where Yvaine dance with Tristan. While Tristan whirl and whirl her around in his arms, Yvaine kept on glowing brighter and brighter.


I guess some glow the brightest where only the blind remain unseen. While some only those with the keenest eyes can detect that glow.

Hmmmm. I want to watch Stardust again.

p/s: Bosannye kena keje hari ni. Kalu tak dah habis dah 3 4 rumah round beraya.

Tataw nak letak ape kat sini...

Well, seems like it had been some time yeps, when I last update. I can offer no excuse. I just don't feel particularly typey.


Oh... my weekend was spent on watching Angels and buying some things. And I guess trying to watch the series I acquired. So much to do, so little time. Even with so many things to watch, I am still trying to see how I can get myself a Felicity box set. And that 70s show. Huhuhu, and perhaps some collection boxsets of BBC period dramas? Heeeee.


Damn it. I feel like going back to Vietnam to just buy dvd box set. Its crazy cheap there. Here, we have to pay more than RM50 for a season. Over there, its less than RM150 for the whole series seasons. Usually around RM 120 or sometimes less. Depends on how many seasons are there, as the more they are, the higher the price as it only means there would be more DVDs.


What's more, they stored the whole season in 1 DVD only. Gile best OK. And in such a nice lovely compact case... See my Angel here.

SDC10043

So nipis one for the whole freaking series seasons (Season 1 - 5). I bought these box sets on my 2nd trip there. The first time I bought my series dvds in Vietnam, there is no slim box sets. Most of them are kinda like the one we can get in Malaysia. But still cheaper! And they gave you a box. Unlike here where...

SDC10152

Nak amik gamba pon cam tak bermaya je kaver camni


And Malaysia put themselves as the no 1 provider of pirated stuffs? Ptuiii! I am so tempted to buy a ticket to Ho Chi Minh for just buying DVDs. Sape nak join??


Tagged Raya pulak from Some and Kak Mel


Berapa pasang baju raya anda tahun ini dan kaler apakah?
Baju Raya tahun ni ade 2 - 1 is actually for the office, alang2 pakai je time raya. I like baju kurung. One is kain yg telah diberi oleh fiance's mom so buat je la. Nanti raye haji pakai kat sana. Both is baju kurung. Tidak bergitu gemar baju kebaya.


Apakah makanan raya tradisional kegemaran anda?
Sayur lodeh. Especially laden with sambal kacang and sambal sotong. Satay goreng mak adalah sangat best apabila dimakan bersama ketupat or nasik impit or even in sayur lodeh. Also Masak Lemak Perut adalah semestinye dimakan banyak2 with sayur lodeh or ketupat. Beriani my mom made for raya pon sangat best. Especially dhalca and ayam panggang. And acar rampai. Laksa johor where I would topped the laksa lavishly with sambal belacan. Lapaaaanyeeeee tatkala menaip ini. That is what my mom usually cook for the first and second raya and alllll is favorite la. There are a few other dishes too but kate favorite kan. Mana tak berat badan bertambah balik raya. Gilo.


Dulu ade soto and lemang. But dibeli or dibuat oleh arwah nenek and datuk. They are both gone now, so the raya food lessening. Sedih kan?


Apakah biskut raya kegemaran anda?
I used to like Bahulu. But not many places yang ade sedap. So dah kurang gemar. Tart nenas sangat suke. I also like ALL kuih raya at rumah Mak Nah (I am kinda vague on the exact relations). Almost all are homemade and very delicious. Adik beradik sume macam excited je bile pegi umah Mak Nah thinking of the biskut raya there. Bile balik dari situ, balang2 kueh raya rumah Mak Nah are either empty or almost empty. Gile mentekedarah and tak taw malu betul.


Berapa banyak duit raya anda dapat n spend untuk bagi kepada budak-budak?
Anak buah dapat lebey dr RM10, sometimes RM50 pon. Bergantung kepada kekayaan. Tahun ni sume decrease okeh. Makcik tadek duit. Kazen mazen either got RM10 or Rm5 depends how big and small they are. Yang lain2 tu RM2 cukup la kan. My mom, maids at the house tu tinggi sikit la dapat.


Apakah aktiviti malam raya korang?
Duduk umah tengok dvd.


Nak tag kat.. sesape yang nak jawab dalam my comments box.


p/s: Pictures taken from my new camera. My first camera. Squeal! It is for hantaran though, so testing2 baru. Habis la. Lepas ni jadilah camwhore blog (CB). Haha.

Thou shalt have flood in thou abode

For the second time.


Ugh.


So, my brother and I manage to avoid the massive jam known as the long public hols crawl on the North South Highway. Just when I think I can jump onto my beloved bed, alas its not to be. Because somehow karma thinks I was a bitch and gave me retribution in a sort of a flood. In my room. Only in my room. Somehow the water pipe overhead of my room is feeling leaky and decided to leak itself all over my room.


Hmmmm... Understandably I am feeling crap. Pissy at no one in particular. Incredibly frustrated at this happening again in a different house, different time, same circumstances. Did I mention again how crappy I am feeling? Let me just say it once more with a feeling. Crap.


However my sister asked me to be grateful. I, of course did no such thing and proceeded to bang and clatter and throw everything in sight. Did I also mention that I can have a pretty epic bitch moments whenever certain opportunity arises. Well... I feel this situation is a fitting opportunity indeed.


So after the meltdown and 2 or 3 episodes of Angel. My particular feeling of ravaging the world somewhat subsided. So I guess my sister is right that I should be grateful.


Let me count the ways on how grateful should I be.


1. Unlike last time, I am grateful that the water is not as deep and travel as far as the other rooms (my room enough should be dandy k) and floor is not ruined completely compare to the last time it happened at the apartment. To my sister who's the co-owner of the house, the floor is somewhat ruined, but not so bad la. Maybe we should take pictures?


2. The water only covered somewhat half of my room and only half of the flooring is somewhat ruined. It also covered a quarter of the landing area next to the staircase.


3. The leaky pipes is kind enough only to leak water on top of cupboards which it then proceeded to soak my clothes and underwears. Gah! My wonderful and some kinda expensive clothes!


4. The clothes are only damp and not discolored (I may need to check that out thoroughly to make sure). Half of my wardrobe are currently being dried out. I am grateful that half of my wardrobe are stored elsewhere or I may be forced to go to work in inappropriate clothes.


5. I am grateful that I do not store my bags there. Clothes can be dried up. Bags leceh sikit and have 70% chance to be ruined.


6. I am also very grateful that I do not store my barang hantaran there.


7. My brother in law was present to uncover this disaster and proceeded with the maid to clean up my room. I actually needed to do the post cleanup only. So yeah, I am very grateful for that ( I meant that in a non sarcastic way).


8. I have a fiance now who will help me to move heavy objects around and some intense scrubbing and mopping this weekend for post cleanup galore!


9. Perhaps this a way of exercise to burn some hari raya lemakness.


10. Unlike last time, my books are spared. Which I am very, very grateful. As books will be completely ruined when come in contact fully with water. Not to mention my books altogether macam sama mahal dengan my clothes.


11. My bed is not damp but only my comforter and some pillows are .

12. My room smelled all damp and musty. But with the help of some industrial strength air freshener its not so bad. Only occasional musty smell pervades sometimes. Maybe I can imagine I am in a cave.


13. At least I am not the person yang pening2 who have to fork out money for the repair works. Hmmm... but I am not looking forward for the repair works. Barang2 di bilik adalah sangat banyak untuk dialih.


Hmmmm... and also some of my sheeps and baby lambs are also victims. Sobs!

See here. This is Saiful. He had been discolored by the mini flood. I didn't post the before pictures. So I gave him a little bath to make him all whitey again.

Hmmm... oh.. and why did I called him Saiful?

What did I do during the 1st Raya?

I watched the first season of Angel. Oh. I love Doyle. I think its the Irish brogue accent. It seems the character was played by Glenn Quinn who's an Irish. Hmmmm... I seems to have a thing for guys with Scottish or Irish accent. Well, Doyle character was not long. About 9 eps. Why, why, why did his character have to be killed of?

Then I looked in imdb.com to see what other movies and series he had done, I was stunned to find that he died of heroin overdose few years back. It seems that he was having problem with drugs and this is one of the reason he had problems getting/committing to work. Pity.

I feel like rewatching Angels eps with only Doyle episodes in it. Must not be that mad...

Hmmmm.... I doubt I will be so free today as at my home, people start visiting during the 2nd Raya.

Selamat Hari Raya Orang Qatar!



Macam banyak je tahun ni kuih raya as ramai duk kasik... Tahun ni my brother and moi will be driving sendiri balik JB. Horrors! As I never drive more than an hour before and out of KL. Hehe...

Still at the office feeling immensely bored. Menaip blop sambil main game worms at my phone. Game Worms ni tak adil. Ade ke patut bile tiba nak kasik weapon je, my team punyer mesti masuk air. Hoh!

Still haven't paid my zakat fitrah yet. Will be doing this today, obviously. I like to procrastinate.

Selamat Hari Raya Alisha, akak and abang adam.

And to all others out there. Abid dah balik Changlun dah. Tsk. Tsk.

Le sigh


I had just finished watching Penelope.

Oh my, oh my. James McAvoy. I was insanely jealous of Christina Ricci. Hukhukhuk.

The movie was sweet. It wasn't great. There are something that I guess that can be improved. But I like the overall whimsical tone of the movie. Reminded me a bit of The Royal Tenenbaums meet Amelie. Love those movies. And this movie is so sweet that it brought a blush to my cheeks.

Heh. That is what I called it. The feeling of giddyness. Like when you finally meet the guy you had been wanting to meet and you could feel your cheeks getting hot. Its a little bit like this. So yes. I like this movie. Though there are scenes or plot-holes I found myself questioning.

Nevermind those. I guess perhaps I love it more cause of James McAvoy. But Christina Ricci is sweet, though her character is kinda weak. I found myself liking Reese Witherspoon character more. Heck. I even like that Edward Humphrey Vanderman III character more. But there's nothing really grating with Penelope character, only something that I feel lacking. But of course, let me just say his name once more. James McAvoy. Ah Ha.

Le sigh.


p/s: Oh yes. Selamat Hari Raya. Have a safe journey to wherever whenever. Mintak maaf jika ada silap (only).

If you can't win. Don't even try.

A month or so back, I had an IM conversation with one of my ex. Before that, we split somewhat unamicably with me furiously wanting to leave him. And he furiously do not want me to leave him. Haha. I remembered that he said I would regret it. Bah! I hate it when a guy said that. I would proceeded to try my damnedest that I would not regret it. So even today I NEVER regret it :P

Anyway after a while he was cordial and friendly back to me. Because he found another lady that win his love. I couldn't care much less nor more. But its fine anyway and I rarely hold a grudge (rarely not never ok) so I am friendly enough. But our conversation are limited to like once or twice a year.

Back to the first sentence in this post, I can't remember if I IM him or not, usually we talk vaguely on how you doing and how's work before ending it with a 'later'. But that day we were a tad bit chatty per usual before he was asking me this question " So you are never going to get married eh?"

First of all, I was rather taken aback. I mean I got the usual question probing in the dark of "when are you getting married" from the exes or friends or scandal. Tapi ini macam memerli la weh. Hahaha. So I got my defenses up and just replied "What? You think I am not the type to get married ke"

Which he then quickly proceeded to make excuses for the questions and steering the conversation away from relationship questions. ( Kalau aku marah agak hebat jugak la kan) But from that question I got curious and asked him regarding his relationship status. See? Be direct. You will get an answer. And his answer is he is in a relationship but it seems like there seems to be some bump in the road. I listened and gave my worthless thoughts on it and don't think much of it later except he is rather too reminiscent during that conversation.

Anyway, a few weeks later we got back in the usual IM conversation on how things are blabbety blah blah, before he ask me a question

Him: "If you don't mind and free, maybe we could have a berbuka puasa together?"

Me: "Erm... well.. I wouldn't mind exactly if my fiance do not mind".

Adalah a very pregnant pause di situ. Hahaha... Honestly I have no qualms in meeting a guy or my ex for lunch or whatever unless my fiance have problems with it and of course preferably if he (fiance) would be there. Saya tunang yang baik ok! Wheeeeeee! I would mind if he would meet his ex hahaha, but do not mind as much if he meets other girls. Tetapi I DEMAND HADIAH BESAR if fiance do that ok.

Well, he then proceeded to reply back, " But you said the other day you are not getting married. I asked you!"

I was getting sizzlingly irritated because first of all, I do not like to answer probing question. I do not like to give them the satisfaction. I would usually evade the question unless you asked me directly. Contoh2 soalan yang agak puaka " Tadek cik abang ke yang pick you up after work?", "Weekend ni tadek plan ape2 with someone special ke?". Gah! Tanye je la single ke tak or if you got a boyfriend? Tak susah pon kan? And why should you be so accuse-y about it. Suke aku la nak ke tanak bagitahu kat sesape yang aku nak. Ade yang aku bagitahu. Ade yang buang masa je aku bagitaw.

I just replied that he didn't ask the question and I apologized for his assumption (aku malas nak memanjangkan cerita and I am basically a nice person. Hihu and still... he did asked me if I am never going to get married in a very hypothetical way which looks kinda insulting which insulted me tapi malas la nak bring that up)

He then proceeded to ask me when the wedding and I answered. He didn't ask to come, and I macam malas nak invite.

And after that, rather laughably he proceeded to tell me what he and his girlfriend will be doing in the next few months and how he missed his girlfriend. (Baru je 2 weeks before kau cakap kau ngan die bercakap pon jarang and you are getting sick of it and mahu end the relationship. Adakah ayat kaver line beginih!!!)

Hahaha. Guys are so transparent. Tak payah la cakap pasal how happy you are with your girlfriend if you had been talking problems about your relationship before kan? Macam dah agak terlewat? Bukan? Just say you are happy for her, offer your congratulations and ask the necessary question then move on to another more pleasant topic je la kan? Huhu... mengapa perlu transparent and top it off with your own relationship bliss when its not particularly blissful or its not going to happen (It is now Oct and I haven't heard a wedding yet. I would kill myself before asking his best friend if he is indeed getting married or not)

Ah well. Tah hape2 la kan. As for our next pleasant IM conversation? I predicted that he would IM me again.... never.

Update: Eh, I spoke too soon. He had just IM me. Heeeee!
