new year, anything else new?

today's the last day of 2009..time really zapp by nowadays. it feels like the year 2008 was just yesterday. almost everyone said it like that, but i really feel it was just yesterday that i started having new classmates and everything. it also means we're getting old faster, yikes..
how are you ushering in the new year? waiting for the ball to drop in NYE times square? watching fireworks display at the London eye? attending the countdown party in Singapore? in front of CentralWorld, Bangkok? partying at ClubCOD or TimeOut in Seoul?
1 Utama 2010 countdown concert - central park avenue? mutiara damansara new year's 2010 concert countdown? new year's eve countdown at Maxims Genting? firework display at Solaris Mont Kiara? Dataran Merdeka?
or spending time with ur precious loved ones? 
whichever it is, i wanna wish all of you..a Happy New Year!!! ;)

going thru the flood

we went to Kuantan on Saturday and on the way there it rained heavily, the road near Kuantan was submerged in certain places..not really the real flood tho. i think those who live on lower grounds were very much affected, only leaves were seen on the trees by the roadside. after checking in the hotel we went out to the beach, but the weather haven't change much so we went back to town. but the wind was so tempting, if only it wasn't raining..
we spent some time in ECM, typical weekend crowd were there. i wanted to eat dinner there and just get back to our room to rest, but my brother wanted to bring us to this restaurant that he always frequents. it's Sara Thai Kitchen, opposite the Grand Continental Hotel..we meant to eat there the last time we were in Kuantan, but somehow we ended up eating at Santai that night.
this Sara Thai Kitchen is better ;) the food really spells Thai, and i can't wait to eat there brother even teased me saying that after this i'd prolly relocate to Kuantan for good..haha. we had seafood tomyam, sotong goreng tepung (a la tempura), chicken cooked in green curry, kerabu mangga, mixed veggies and kerabu kangkung. it's the first time i had the kerabu kangkung and it's actually dipped in batter and fried..yummy. and what really surprised me was the amount we had to pay for the's cheap and for that  delicious food, really really worth going there ;) next time we eat there i'm gonna order steamed fish coz i heard it's delish too, owh and not forgetting the noodles..everything seems to be good :p

perfect proposal

i haven't watch this show before this, coz whenever i saw it on the info i would just skip it and choose to watch something else (coz i never thot it would be really interesting :p)
then somehow when i read that in this particular episode..Jeff, an animator who did something for his girlfriend, Natasha in order to propose to her, i decided to watch it. he spent like 3 to 4 months just to do the animation with the help from his friends and then TLC helped him in making everything else ready..including pretending there's this screening of the best romantic comedy based on ppl's votes and that Natasha won the red carpet treatment. he's so sweet and the proposal's totally nice..they even made me cry ;p

the much awaited..

after waiting for sooooo long, i got to watch New first i thot of watching Mulan today with my sister and will prolly watch New Moon with my brothers on Monday. but all of us decided to watch both. we arrived early at the ticket booth and we are fortunate to get kind-of-okay seats. usually i wouldn't choose the side rows, but then my fave seats are booked already. never mind..edward's the most important thing ;p
yeah, the book will always be better..but i love it no matter what. i'll watch it again and again and again..hehe
Mulan is something that i would totally recommend to everyone..well, we are the only 'non-pure' Chinese watching the movie..the others are all Chinese. but do go and watch it, it's well worth. i didn't even know Vicki Zhao acted as Mulan herself..i just sort of liked the ads i saw when i was at my auntie's house earlier this week. i think it's the real version of it, coz it didn't turn out as i hoped it would, being a romantic movies' fan myself. but still, Mulan is a good movie

the trip that we decided at the last-minute

my grandma wanted us to go to my auntie's house in Penang coz she's there for the that was what we did. 
it rained heavily, twice on the way to Penang..really heavy downpour, i was worried when we couldn't really see what's in front. only the hazard lights were visible. thankfully nothing bad happened.
we arrived there around 5 pm i think. after resting for a while, we went out for dinner at Key's. this time there's only one section left, there used to be other food offered..but now, there's just char kuey teow, satay, ytf and kerang rebus. and the service was really bad. i don't think we'll be going there again after that one last time. and the ytf, so cannot beat Taiping's..:p
the next day we went to the island, first stop was Chowrasta market. we got there when they had just started their business in the morning :p not many ppl around yet, can take picture..if not sure segan one..hehe.
after making the purchases, we made our way to Feringgi Beach. we went around and took some pictures, and had laksa and prawn mee by the beach, at the stalls near the Spice Garden. 
the prawn mee was a letdown, but laksa was quite good..owh, but i wish we stopped by Taiping to have the laksa sold by this pakcik at the foot of Maxwell Hill. his laksa was nicer.
after that we went to Queensbay Mall coz my mom said she wanted to buy some stuff for my cousins. i noticed there was not that many ppl there..why eyh?
that night we went to a kedai makan..maybe it's Siew Bee Chin, i couldn't recall the name much..huhu. it's stated that they offer hailam food. but i think they offer practically everythg..and all the races go there to eat. you can see Chinese patrons, Indians and Malays. really 1kedai 1Malaysia ;)
as usual, since we're already up north and so near to Alor Star..we stopped by Pekan Rabu. 
this stall is a must, every single time we are at Pekan Rabu. there are a lot of kuih to choose from, but the kuih bingka and lepat are really nice. a lot of things are sold here..pekasam, ikan kering, dodol, all sorts of kerepek, clothes, etc. there is a bazaar along the sides too, i guess coz today's Eid Adha..there are cakes and festive cookies offered. 
next stop, Kedah Padi Museum near Gunung Keriang. everyone else already went there, so my mom took me inside to show me the revolving painting. it was awesome..the painter's work was really detailed and he portrayed everything in vicinity of the museum. when we were there, there were 5 buses of Chinese school kids which made it really crowded. dunno why they're so interested in that particular museum, but according to my auntie, a lot of Chinese schools' students made trips to there. 
when it was time for lunch, we decided to go try for ourselves the Radix fried chicken. 
it's like KFC, but everything is locally made by this company HPA. i think it's great for a local product. yeah it need some changes, but i'd say keep up the good work..and when are you opening a new outlet here in Melaka? ;)
another stop, Masjid Zahir..the state mosque..i like the designs too.
that night we went to Bukit Mertajam, to my grandma's bestie's house. they went a long way back, when they were both living in the same area, when my mother was younger. she was really excited to see us coz the last time we met was when i was a few months old and my mom was preggy with my brother. they had a lot to talk, but sadly i can't understand anythg..*sigh*
with grandma and cousins
me with cousin Fernice
then the next day we came back and stopped to pick my sister for her Aidiladha holiday on the way home

after all..

been hearing everyone saying this particular movie was so good, so i decided to watch it..what movie eyh? it's (500) days of summer..even tho it's not the kind of movies that i would like coz of what really happened to the girl and the boy, but it's good. the narrator also said it wasn't a love story, it was a story about the boy, tom fell in love with the girl, summer. sadly, the girl didn't believe in love. that's the reality of's saying when u think or expect everything to turn out okay for u, it seldom does.
but still, don't give up on's out there waiting for u ;p
owh and i love this song zooey deschanel sang for karaoke..

p/s: for my friend who had the courage to let the guy know about ur feelings, u did a great job already. don't fret much and get well soon :)

long distance is the hardest

or maybe being a time traveler's wife is waaaaaaaayyy more difficult..hurmm..lotsa stuff to think about.
can a relationship withstand the heat, even after knowing each other for a long, long time? there's so much coming, and u can only go thru so much..does love prevail?

the book's of course better than this..i dun think who hasn't read it wud understand much of the movie pun. but it turned out okay..the kids who acted in this movie mmg cute2..both Alba n clare(as a kid)..okay, Henry jugak..even tho my friend thot he's a girl at first..haha..

something reminds me

my mom watched 'all about eve' yesterday and i had sneak peaks of it, coz i was, as usual, sitting in front of my lappy. i was transported back to the time when i heart JDG..owh just looking at his boyish face again makes me smile ;) 
owh, he looks hot even when he's smoking 
he looks like a triad leader like this
and his character in the drama said.."i promise after this, i wouldn't drive fast, i wouldn't make u worry again and i won't leave u"..something along that lines..
that would be enuff..don't u think so? when u love someone, u would feel sorry if u'd ever make them worried over u. and when u said promises like shows that u love them, that's what i think..owh, but only if they're delivered and not just words..
it's all the little things that matters..

p/s: i'm a bit disappointed when i realised that my first final exam paper is on the same day as the one that TTTW will come out..da la lpas 1st paper tu bnyk reading subjects..

in deep thoughts

this is the 2nd time i didn't get to experience the earthquake's tremor. the first time was in late March 2005, it was at nite and i went down to call my bestie on her birthday. if i was upstairs in my room (in Tangkak) most prolly i would feel it. all of us had to go down and stay out of the building before we were given the green light to go back to our own rooms. this time i was attending my drama class, and knew about the earthquake thru the radio..i heard Adi from Era talking about how he ran and then turned around to fetch Burn. then my friend said she felt the tremor too coz she was staying in her room that evening. 
i've been wanting to experience those kinda things myself, but then it's nothing to be really proud of eyh? everyone would be really thankful if they live to tell..and i think myself would shudder everytime i talk about it, if i'm one of them. i mean those who experienced it firsthand, not the itsy bitsy shakes. 
and tonite as i watched the prime time news, i was deeply those visuals shown. usually, watching that kinda disaster i would only be in awe of the aftermath. but this one brought tears to my eyes..maybe coz i'm thinking of the Malaysians stranded there. to hear them talk, it really is scary..
lets help them with whatever we can spare..there's no telling when our time would come.

most of my family planned to go back to their own place today, so we decided to have them for lunch here at my house. we cooked ayam masak kicap, sambal sotong, tempe goreng cili, asam pedas, ikan belanak goreng, sayur kubis..

asam pedas ngan sayur x smpat nk amek gmbar..sume pun licin :)

kjap je die da peluk2 Adi tu, nk kne leraikan da..kalau lmbt abes la Adi. Adi duduk je kat my lap, Isya wud pull his hand and suruh die bangun..jeles la tu. sometimes Adi tu nanges gak bile Isya da start pgg die..fobia kot :p Aiha lak tido je, mase nk dkat balek baru die she was a bit cranky. i pgg Adi kjap pun die da ckp "eyh tu baby kte la". da la Adi ligat gler..nk lari aje. i dpt pgg pun kalau bawak die jalan2 pusing satu umah smpai keluar tgk pokok and bugs kalau x mmg asyik struggling nk turun from my lap...
