run away fast

I saw this in the Malaysian Airlines ad, 'Journeys Are Made By The People You Travel With'. And that is totally true.

If you are surrounded with good people, then you are safe. Because positivity and the not so nice, negativity will rub on you. Unknowingly. Us, human beings gravitate towards others.We can't really help ourselves.

If you care about your soul, and would wish nothing than for it to be in a good away, with all your might towards the other end if you don't want yourself to be called bad by others someday. Lets have great journeys together with people we want to emulate, and say goodbyes to those we rather not.

Now you don't

The Great Gatsby posed such an attraction that drew me to watch it. The first one is because of Leo DiCaprio, the main character and also the story was about people during the 1920s. Tiffany&Co. also had a part in the movie, which is also a big thing.

I love everything about The Great Gatsby, the costumes, the jewellery, the colors, and even the pretty scenes. But it was a sad movie. It is such a loss, and I blame Daisy and her husband for everything.

Next movie is Now You See Me. You see, this movie was chosen on impulse. I wanted to watch the movie KIL, in which Redza Minhat starred. But since I was going to work after the movie, I had to choose another one. KIL would be too close to the time I need to enter for work. Now You See Me was chosen because of Mark Ruffalo and Isla Fisher. No review, no nothing.                  

And I am glad I did.

It was a great movie. At first I thought it was about a bunch of thieves, planning a heist. But it is about a magician's son, now a magician himself who planned a revenge for his dead father. I always thought the French Interpol lady was the hooded person, but it was not. This one is a MUST watch.

A wedding I would not miss for anything

Yesterday was historic, and I'm thankful that I get to see Zara on her big day. I would be devastated if I did not attend the event.

Well, actually I was late - I intended to go early in the morning. In time for the solemnization. But the schedule got messed up, so I only arrived at her house after the solemnization. But I still managed to catch them on the dais. It was hilarious, with all the directors behind the cameras telling them to do this and that. But they are a cool couple, and I can't stop smiling. I'm sooooo happy for her.

Mostly I just stood there in her room while she was getting ready for the reception. I did not help much, but I hope my presence there brought some good to her :p

Rare these days.

This is cute.
Were you still nervous at this time?

You, my friend is the best!!!

And I am surprised that her mom still recognizes me. I think the last time we met was the last day of matriculation. Yeah, around 8 years ago. May our friendship continues 80 years more.

Business partners

I had thoughts about going to answer The Apprentice Asia call back then. Haha. The hype about The Apprentice was so huge, although I was never a big fan. I would catch whatever episode was on at that time, but I did not really follow it.

Who knew years later, I'd be choosing this field. Maybe I was drawn to it because of the show. Kudos to Donald Trump then.

I happened to notice the first episode of The Apprentice Asia, because I followed Sazzy Falak's Instagram. She is the wife of Nash, one of the contestant from Malaysia..if you are wondering. And I stumbled across one of the reruns while surfing the channels. Lucky me, I guess.

I think Alex has advantages, although we have yet to see everyone else's. He speaks four languages including Mandarin AND I just discovered that he's French.

I dislike Hendy when he brought to light that it was his pricing partner's fault and also Alex's fault that they make more loss than actually breaking even. It was apparent that he could not control his team members and he lacked of strategy. So, thankfully we can say bye bye to him.

For Team Apex, I am going for Andrea. Nik is showing some things that could tell a lot, but let's just sit back and enjoy the show.

Drools alert!!

One month and nothing can be heard from me. By this rate, there would only be less than ten posts in a year. I have plans to go on a long vacation - which exact date and duration have yet to be determined. Mom have been voicing out her wish to get me back to school. Both can only be done if I am to work in another place.
And that also means more time to get my thoughts out here.

All this while I can only soothe myself with food. Yeah, Operation Getting Me Fat. I have two partners in crime now.

Partner A is as adventurous, eat as much (sometimes more) and have a penchant for Korean/Japanese same like me. So we go to eat sushi and Korean food, plus everything else we'd feel like having. But she has yet to get permission to go out of this state.

So that's where Partner B comes in. She can join me for outstation excursion(s) - making me a happy kid when I can eat all those things not available here.

Lunch at Nandos today

Three cheese spinach lasagna

Pizza lover's request

Seafood curry something

Salmon sushi

Ikea meatballs

Love this Double Choc latte

Sukiya's teriyaki chicken rice

My current wish is to have my own food program. I don't even need payment, just give me all the food for free ;D
I'm craving for Salmon sushi now. -__-

East Coast

It had been one month since the trip to the East Coast, and what makes it funny is that we didn't even take the scenic coastal route. I really miss the long stretch of coconut trees and the expected bright fires at the Kerteh area. Again, it also means that I did not have any chance to eat the fried seafood I've been wanting to stomach since forever.

But all we did was eat and eat. But we forgot to go eat at Kedai Nasi Kak Wok, and I just realized it when fellow Instagrammer posted a photo. Well, save it for next time then.

One of my favorite was Nasi Ulam Cikgu, Kampung Kraftangan.

And of course, the yummy kueh spread at Pasar Siti Khadijah.

The trip also made me eat a lot more when I came back. *sigh*

Saturday, March 16, 2013


I have been meaning to write for quite some time. But things have been getting in the way, especially my phone. I am hooked too much to Instagram and Twitter now. Most of the time, it's Instagram. You don't even need to ask what am I doing, at any given time. If I'm not working, I'd be scrolling down and checking the photos like mad. Now I feel like a freak, who checks out other people's lives incessantly.

Today marks the 10th day I'm wearing braces on my teeth.

On the 6th of March, I went in to see the doctor in a rush, as I tend to be a bit late for most of the appointments (especially after dad stopped coming along because of work) :p
But that day, I felt a bit more guilty. Because usually there would be other patients, who could go in first before I arrive for my turn. This time, it was only me. Okay, apparently he cleared some slots just for me. Never thought of that. Sorry again, doctor.

I opened my mouth, and automatically closed my eyes shut as usual. He asked me something, but I forgot what was the question. It was not about the colors of the braces, because I was ready with the answer. But he never asked the much awaited question. I felt like a school kid, ready with an answer..but the teacher simply skip her and taught something else instead. Oh, never mind. It was not important, really.

I was ready to grip my own hands if the pain came. But actually I never felt pain. He applied composite(?) to my teeth and stuck the brackets on them. Then he put on the wire. It was a bit uncomfortable when the wire was left unattended on one side. The wire poked me in the cheek. Fortunately the doctor realized just in time :p

I was ecstatic with the prospect of eating as normal as possible, because I felt like nothing was different even with the braces on. I was even thinking of having lunch. But after two hours (I think) I started to feel the pressure on my teeth. I felt like my teeth were all glued together. Soooo normal, pfft.

Then I had ulcers in my mouth where the brackets made contact. That hurts. Especially when it's the hot and dry season, and I had to talk a lot. Another thing that came up was when I foolishly ate a bite of hot, hot pie..out of the oven. Serves me right. Now my throat is still wounded and I cannot simply eat everything. All food with hard edges are a no-no. It even hurts when I ate rice sometimes.

Maybe that's a sign that I need to cut down on my food intake..haha.

p/s: I dreamt a weird one last night. I posted a photo up in Instagram of me being in a car with someone. And I was posing like I was going to light up a cigarette. Then someone reported about the photo to mom. I think maybe I was under influence, after what happened to Zara.

Life update

I am going to face the moment of truth tomorrow, bracing myself when all the gory images kept pouring in my mind.

Help me God.

Haha, I feel like such a drama queen. There have been a lot of people wearing braces already, and none of them looked like they went through hell and back.
But mom is already thinking about cooking porridge when I arrived at home just now. Okay, I was thinking about it too. I was having a bowl of laksa at Calanthe Art Cafe, and I kept thinking this is the last day I'm going to enjoy eating. Tomorrow will bring a lot of pain to me - not being able to eat normally.

My own view

Love the angels
Well, I have been having a new diet these past few weeks. Starting from when my teeth were removed, and wearing the platform for my palate right to this moment. Now that reminds me of the last couple of weeks, I could get sick again when I can't eat properly anymore. 

I need to calm myself down. I'd have to sleep early and rest all I can tonight.

Maybe not, though :p

Family time

My sister came back home, so I took some time off from work. A very much needed break, I would say..considering my health condition.

We went to Legoland down south, with youngest brother out of the picture. It was the first time we went anywhere without him. But USS still trumps Legoland any day, to me and mom.

Enjoy the pictures.

The entrance

The Taj Mahal

Wishing we're in Singapore

Do I need to step on this thing?

Mom and Dad putting out the fire.

Then the next day we went to visit my youngest brother, and we went berserk at Candylicious. 

I should have gotten these huge Pepero for myself.
