Late entry for the birthday guy.

Only gotten the chance to update as I had at last found the wayar for the camera. Ye, ye saya memang letak barang merata then forgot about it.

Jumaat lepas was my husband birthday. Sempat baked him a choc cake. 

Verdict of the cake : Macam tak berapa jadi. Hahaha. The icing is a bit bitter because I salah copy berapa amount of sugar I need to put in. And the cake itself, the second batch was fine because I modify it a bit, but the first batch lack of flour because again I must be going blind, I didn't weigh the flour properly. 

Ah well, I can always give it another try. Boleh la, the cake. Because the icing is a bit bitter, I paired the cake with vanilla ice cream and peaches, and it is kinda yummy. Sweet and bitter come together nicely. Tapi next time kena sukat betul-betul.

For the birthday dinner, I treat him at Mandarin Oriental. Mistakenly believed that there was dim sum. Bah! Dim sum ade time lunch hour je ok. Noted. Nampak gaya lain kali la pegi lagi.

I posed for the camera and then asked my husband to pose.

So we ordered some food of the menu, some veggies, chicken, prawns, fried rice. I started to take pic of the first 2 dish, then got hungry and proceed to eat until habis semua. I can't be a food blogger. Terrible.

The highlight of the dinner is the durian pancakes, or said in the menu durian bla bla crepes.. bla bla.

It was incredibly good.

Its basically durian filling with cream wrapped with crepe. But the durian and cream were very nice. It is worth it to eat here just to get this dessert. 

But of course sebab dining at a hotel is not exactly things we can do weekly. Monthly pon aku rase macam tak mampu, so I can get the next best things at Midvalley je. There is some stalls (in Midvalley and Ikano I noticed) that sells these durian pancakes, bukan setakat durian. Got mango, green tea and cempedak. RM10 for 5 of these, compared to the RM18 for 3 above. The one sold at these stalls, taste pretty good too. I want to try their cempedak pancake next. 

Altogether, the meal albeit delicious, was nothing special except for their signature dessert. I will try the dimsum later, but for Chinese dinner food like this, I rather go to Cheng Ho or Haji Sharin Low for its quite nice and cheaper selections. Sheema, Seri and Gohan! We need to go there pronto!

Bawah ni entry tak related tapi aku malas nak create post baru. I went to BookXcess earlier that day. Nothing really special, mostly books by obscure authors selling at RM2 and RM3, which I bought  2 to see if it was any good. Bought myself a Dan Brown book, because it is selling at RM10 and I can't help myself but bought Gregory Maguire book Mirror, Mirror. Something like a retelling of the fables Snow White. It is a hard cover book and very lovely which is why I can't help myself.

Just hope the characters in there is more likable than Elphaba in Wicked. I was looking for another of Maguire's book 'Confessions of An Ugly Stepsisters'  everywhere but couldn't find it.

My Tuesday post.

ladida. Also. Don't you ever find yourself itching to eat something after you have a particularly bad/tasteless meal. Macam trying to wash out the bad taste out of your mouth and to make your taste bud satisfied walaupon perut kekenyangan?

A piece of furniture. A lot of things to say.

I bought an armchair last Saturday. Nothing expensive. From IKEA actually. I kinda hate having LOADS of IKEA products in the house, macam there is no other furniture place out there. But there is no arguing, many of IKEA products are nice, have a modern look, you can easily assembled it yourself (in my case easily assembled by my husband) and more importantly, affordable especially for a young starters in life. So IKEA it is. And, my husband love IKEA to bits.

I did looked around a few places. I had my sight on some really lovely Urban Culture armchair yang sangat sleek and modern and lovely, tetapi I loathe to spend more than 1K on a piece of chair. Because basically, it is just a chair kan. While I do have the cash, I decided to also picked up some other things that is necessary to the house, so lain kali la aku beli mende-mende meraban mahal macam tu. 

So on Friday aku pergi la kejab furniture window-shopping. Basically my furniture shopping is whizzing around the place to see if I like the piece or not. The salesperson can hardly keep up with me. The only thing I like is a leather armchair that is really lovely and very 50ish retro looking (which reminded me that I would love to ransack my late grandma house and take a few things out of the house rather than leaving it to the reckless renters there). Tapi leather is a no-no in a house that have malicious and sharp clawed cats. 

Once my husband and I went sofa window-shopping at a particular place and mentioned that we are not interested in leather because we have cats. The salesperson reply to that comment was " You know you can de-clawed or always potong their kuku maaa". I looked at her like her a bit disbelievingly and replied 'No' while smiling tapi dalam hati ... "wah.. wah.. suke hati je ko suggest nak suruh aku buang kuku kucing aku." . I mean it really....really? If you want to sell your product, adakah suggestion kau dengan suruh potential buyer itu tukar their lifestyle, preference or in this case clipping off their pet cats claw? I have nothing against cats that were declawed, but if your cat is declawed then your cat must need to be a fully indoor cat. Kalau kau suke let your cat out, then it would be terrible for the cat to not have its claws.

Back to the armchair. I always dream of an armchair as a place to read my book, padahal my favorite place to read a book is lying on my stomach on a sofa while munching on some food. Cuma nampak lagi dignified laa kalau baca buku atas armchair kan.

I was torn between 2 armchairs. One that is more expensive and more comfy and another one is less comfy but cheaper and fit in with the whole look of the house. Sebab aku cheapskate and the other chair is more expensive than the other one, I chose the cheaper one while consoling myself that when I can have more expensive chair in later years because the money is needed elsewhere. 

Sebab rase macam saiko je nak amik gamba dan tepek di sini sebab its not one in a million kinda thing and chances are you guys have this too, I took the pic from IKEA and showed what I bought.

That is basically what I bought, except the cover is red/white stripes. Boleh la, kinda cute and it didn't break the bank. Betulkah saying itu?

And the funny thing is, we can just load the armchair into my tiny car. Tak payah bayar delivery.

Awalkan sikit random rambling session sebab esok aku cuti. Horey!

That is my breakfast for today. Awesome for giving you that sugar buzz early in the morning and tooth rottening. Courtesy of the friendly bai roti of the neighborhood.


Tomorrow aku cuti. Saje2. And kebetulan pula there is some World Book Day promos ongoing at BookXcess and I am so going there tomorrow morning to haunt their new bookstore. I am hoping for some good deals, and a bit excited if I can find some books that I had been itching to read at half of the price as the one in Borders. It always kinda irk me that Kinokuniya and Borders don't offer membership cards for their frequent customers. I do like Kinokuniya stores better than Borders though. A tad bit cheaper, bigger selections and they blared out great music. Also Borders placed their books haphazardly, author with surname start with K ade kat J, M ade kat L. Confusing. But given the choice, if I can get cheaper books elsewhere, I'll go there instead.

Speaking of books, I had started reading that trilogy Inkheart books. I am not sure if I can deem it as boring, but it seems to be by the first few pages I read it ( I can't seem to get past chapter 2). But the thing is that, the characters are extremely unlikable. And I hate how the author seems to hit the readers on the head repeatedly on how the characters seems to REALLY LOVE BOOKS. Really? Mr/Ms Cornelia Funke? Like I didn't get that, the last 50 times you mentioned it! Maybe I'll need to read another book first before delving further into Inkheart. Who knows, it may get better after the first few chapters.


Besok is my hubby birthday. Barf. Hubby. I had to laugh out loud when Taqi used "your hubby boo". That is the most sickening thing ever. Husband. I'll use and be using that. Senang kata, ni haa laki aku dah makin tua esok. So, besok birthday dinner! Yeay! Kalo aku rajin aku post pics.

And yesterday was James McAvoy birthday! Happy belated birthday and may your blazing blue eyes be blazing some more at the cinemas nearby for me to gaze adoringly at! Eik, and I am giddy!

Bloody Idiot

That's me. 

Damn fool. 
Me also. 

I wish I was a little bit less melodramatic. Turn down the melodrama a bit down would then prove beneficial for my overall common sense and dignity. 

Do you know I like to talk to myself when I am embarassed? Fun fact no. 1. But that can also happened if I am bored. Ok, that no 2, is just a cover up just in case you find me talking to myself and know that I am embarrassed because I am mentioning it, so I am throwing fact no 2 which maybe true or not so I can disguise the fact if it does happened and you people who reads this blog and remembered this and found me in a situation where I talk to inanimate objects deduced that I am embarrassed. Why do I have such thought process?

God. I am such a bloody idiotic fool. I just can't get over on how much of a total idiot I was. That word is becoming redundant. I wanna Shift + F7 at Words a bit to get a little variation. By the way, I always totally did this when writing an assignment and sometimes this blog, hitting Shift + F7 to widen a bit the vocab. 

Let see what it had to offer. 
unintelligent - nope
dim - true!
thick - true!
dense - true!

I tire of typing and copying so the above: dim, thick and dense all apply to me. 

You, yes, you must be agreeing and saying to yourself I brought it upon myself. True that. But I ain't going down alone.
This nonsensical entry does not make sense, but it does to me. In a way. Maybe I'll look up this entry and thought to myself, yeah, this thing does not make sense. I just need to VENT!

On how FOOLISH I had been. 

It is one of those mood swing Adek been talking about that I have which seems overdue.

Oi balik la Dila.

You know what

Writing about the below post, I remembered something else and looking on it back objectively I am freaking hopping mad.

So, the next time you want to dump someone, say it clearly and concisely. Not with songs that can have multiple meaning according to the listener. Because that is just fucked up.

Called this delayed anger reaction. Now I am feeling nauseous because I am just so freaking angry and resentful.

Damn it, I am going to write about my tiny man in a hole and bring him up appropriately that he won't give any tiny ladies mixed messages.

Macam biasa lor.

I spout random stuffs on Friday. It's becoming a habit.

Damn! Is this a thing now? Is blogging becoming a thing so difficult for me to do? Even spouting off nonsense things? Bah! So I am giving my fingers free reign to type whatever things they want. Ok, fingers. Be free!

1. Eh. My man in a hole story had evolved to another paragraph. He had now 'homified' his home a bit, and dig tunnels to make rooms. I only started on the bedroom and lounge though. Kitchen next.

2. I had ran out of perfume. I am waiting for my mom to get back from Qatar and bring me the perfume I asked from my sister. In the mean time, I am searching for my other perfume laying somewhere around the house. So right now I am not smelling wangi which makes me sad. I do have my Annick Goutal though, but I can't bring myself to spray that everyday. That shit cost RM500 per bottle. I am wearing gold jeweleries that cost less than that. Shit, and now I sound like the bloggers that parade around their LVs and 'Couches' in the blog. Erase this from your memory. But I do have to add Annick Goutal perfume is super amazing. You sprayed it the night before, bangun pagi esok tu pon you are still smelling like you just sprayed the perfume. And I will still parade around my Sungai Wang bought bags in the blog. If I bought any. I haven't. But I did bought new clothes from Sungai Wang! Squeal! Oh God. I need to stop typing this paragraph now.

3. I am thinking to watch movie alone tonight but my husband frowned upon the idea. Not that he is afraid that anyone will hit on me or maybe I will hit on anyone. More like his tone of voice is like when I wave off the idea of asking anyone to join me, "Can't you be any weirder." But he doesn't mean in it in bad way, more like in an exasperating "Why you don't enjoy the company of people like any normal people do?." Oh, I didn't asked my husband because he already have other plans. Eh, how about we organize some movies outing on Friday. Who wants to come, come, but everybody buy their own tickets and sit anywhere they like to sit and no asking somebody else to buy your tickets unless you can come on time. BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT I HATE? Missing movie trailers. And secretly, I think people who hang out with me don't really like hanging out with me because I either bored them to death or irritated them to death.Or they plain. Just. Don't. Like. Me.

4. There's a career fair in Midvalley, perlu nak pergi ke?

Was not in the mood

for blogging. Don't know but my mood was a little bit depressed. Probably because I found that I can't seem to breath going through the difficult project been assigned to me. But LETS (with a hysterical note) forget that for a moment, ok! So at the moment, I am listening to Devics which is always good at soothing me or lulling me to sleep. And do you know that Devics is considered as a dream pop group. Awesome genre. If I ever would fall in love with a group, the group SHOULD fall into a dream pop genre. Just seems apt. 

Oh, I started a story about a tiny man living in a hole, and so far he still lived in a hole because I only got to one paragraph. I have no idea where the story will lead to or if it will ever continue. 

I am always making stories in my head , very rarely it made it to paper because I just have too many damn interests including laziness occupying my time. Sometimes, I paused the story in my head and the characters will tap their feet waiting for me to remember them. Then after a time, when I am beginning to forget them, they will turn hazy and are lost wandering the land of Nothing-Absolutely-At-All-Is-Happening-To-Me. Then I too get stuck in that land. Which then I meet these characters again and they begin to tell their stories again. If I am feeling generous I will fabricate them a hasty ending. Some does not seems satisfied on the ending being given to them, but away they goes. Some, got lost so long forgot their stories and disappear as a mist of whispered words and promises of a rebirth in another character.

Ah, such is the life of an imaginary character living in my head. 

I think tomorrow I will put up a post with pics! I think!

Random Rabbles

I think Taye Diggs is kinda hot. Idina Menzel is a very lucky woman.

I hate breaking in a new shoe. But my new shoes look hot anyway.

I had finished watching HIMYM Season 1 - Season 4. It is indeed legend-Wait for it-ary. 

Went to the Sony Expo just now. Its fun if you like hanging around playing games and stuffs, and not if you're in a hurry.

My mouse is stupid. Malas betul nak beli mouse baru ok.

Ok. I am kinda bumming out that we had ran out of HIMYM eps to watch. Decided to wait for Season 5 to finish, so can marathon it. Just because Barney Stinson is not meant to be taken in moderation.

I run out of idea, and want to go home now.
