我想我会像阿桑一样...

上个星期发生了点小事,我奔波劳累了一番。

在为某人奔波某事劳累之时,我突然有种感觉,如果/万一有一天我病了,我想我会像阿桑一样...

阿桑,是我人在中国享受着交换生和第一次在雪地里奔跑时传出噩耗的。那时,我很惊讶;可是让我印象深刻至今的,是那时候读到一篇报道,她身边的人都不知道她病了,师兄张智成更接受不到要她回来... ...

一直以来,都会听到一些人说我太强了,有时我也真的自我感觉超级良好地认为我很强。所谓的强,是指我的生存技能都不赖,就像蟑螂一样打不死...

会变这样,可以算是被锻炼出来的。家人,朋友,前男友,等等,都是我的教练。

就这样,有时我情愿独来独往做独行侠来得快活些,不被身边人左右,做起事来比较利落干脆。

所以,莫名其妙地,我觉得有一天我病了,可能会自己开车去医院入院开刀吧。
(话说,我还真的有这么一位朋友是自己开车去医院开刀的)

病了,就只让家人知道*,然后悄悄地藏着病痛,快乐地过着生活,直到...

*得到吾娘许可了,身体发肤,受之父母,一定要让她知道!
话说,也因为这个原因,她不赞成我报名做organ donor...

Weekend in KL

Image
Went to KL few weekend ago for some personal business and family gathering, since everyone including the baby was in town too.

Shir-B-Lyn went to KL to visit her grandma who is sick and stays with her aunt in Puchong. There's some miscommunication on our side, that resulted me drive from North-South Highway, exit through Kota Damansara, to Danau Kota Setapak through Sprint Highway, then went all the way to Puchong via Duke + Penchala + LDP later. Luckily the heavy traffic didn't cramp my clutch-pressing leg -_-

Shir-B-Lyn is still as cute as a button, but she was quite cranky at the time, I bet it tore her grandma's heart apart when she cried so loud towards her grannie. Bad bad girl

After a few while, she's back to the smiley phase, and we played roll over in the bedroom.

Her aunt treated us dinner at a restaurant in Puchong.

The next day, sisters bought me a Mille Crepe cake from Humble Beginning as my belated birthday cake, and oh it is so yummy!!! ^^



Got super no …

互补 (?)

人家都在说,找伴侣就要找个跟你有些不一样的,才能起‘互补’的效应 ;然而,伴侣是可以选择的嘛,那父母和孩子之间该怎么算呢?这是我的故事...

话说,几个周末前持着几个任务去了趟吉隆坡;巧合地,全家大小小也去了,所以顺便搞个家庭小聚会。

 毕竟我是一个人从北下南,所以沟通非常重要,对吧?

可惜,咱爹时不时会搞出一单沟通问题出来,好巧不巧,就是这个时候搞出问题...

其实,也不是什么大事啦,也只不过让我这样走了一轮: 南北大道 - Kota Damansara - Sprint Highway - Danau Kota, Setapak - Duke Highway + Penchala Link + LDP - Puchong Perdana
(有吉隆坡地理常识的人自己计算里程吧)

虽然我现在已经脱离KL地头虫*的绰号,有很多路哪一条通哪一条我已经没那么熟悉,好家在我有个一直指引我去荷兰的Papago和还过得去的认路技巧,奔波劳碌一番加上jam here jam there一下终于都到了小宝贝黄智菱的小姑家。

*我只是虫nah...我很小一只罢了

 当时有向咱爹发一轮的脾气,只是后来想想,驾了这一‘大’圈的路,不是又帮我复习了吉隆坡路吗,何乐而不为呢?

 吾娘每次都说,咱爹很庆幸地拥有不止一个,而是四个女儿,起码比较有能耐‘忍受’他那时不时会爆发的无厘头/无可理喻的小脾气...在这件事情上呢,如果咱爹可以问多一次,我就可以少转一圈了。当然,你也可以说为什么我就不能直接去问当事人...因为这是我的地方,我爽就好。

所以,与其说伴侣间要互补,我觉得亲情间的互补更重要,因为毕竟你不能选择你的父母和兄弟姐妹。

Zumba October La Fiesta

Image
Two weeks after the 'tremendous' Zumba Party, we were in Penang again last weekend for another Zumba Fitness party - October La Fiesta.

It was at the Che Hoon Khor Moral Uplifting Society (德教会紫云阁). Since three of us didn't know the way (I am still a Penang Island noob), we tried to ask around for directions, and since the address on the invitation card is in English, no one knew the place! We were out of the way until we entered the cemetery area (seriously), an angelic uncle guided us the correct way.

The beginning of the event wasn't a good one, as they let us in very last minute, with separate lucky draw papers, very slow ticket-checking causing long lines outside the hall, and it was late! The event supposed to start at 2pm, but the slow process slowed it down, plus a dance demonstration made it slower to start...

Ok enough rant, let's hear the fun part! Finally when the demonstration finished, Cassie from Australia came up to the stage and started moving her …

Women's stuff: Skin Care

Image
The idea of this post is based on a blog I read once, where she wrote about how many products used as part of her daily skincare routine.

Besides hair, another proud achievement of mine would be my skin/face.

Ever since puberty, my skin has never been in the tip top excellent (or even just good) condition for as long as I can remember. Mom, being the casual type, would advice me to wash my face with tap water ONLY and apply Hazeline ONLY. So she's not the best person to refer to.

Now, miracle happens!! ^^ I love my skin so much, I can look at the mirror and smirk =)

This is the skincare regime I have been sticking to for the past one year, and the result is superb!

Every-two-days routine:
You can read the review for Paris Caroline products here, with one extra product included - deep cleansing milk as make up remover - sunscreen; and one product off the list - refining cream, it's too oily for my skin. So far, my paid-off investment of P.C. products a…

Women's Stuff: Hair

Image
For the first 18 years of my life, I had been a short haired girl. Although my mom has four daughters, she isn't the 'groomer' type of mother, so we were not the 'victims' of putting on heavily laced dresses, braided hair etc. Plus, my primary and secondary school had this rules of 'no long hair' - hair must be above your collar, and bangs must be above your eyebrows! I've been short hair my entirely school time!

My initial intention of keeping a long hair was quite simple and random. There was this one time during Form Two, I stayed after school for volleyball training, and when I was alone in the class, two of my classmates, Zafarul and Ying Lik (for those who know, understand my meaning of 'random'?) came into the class and said:"Woah HN you know what? I think you would look very pretty if you keep your hair long.", and that was it! I even tried doodling my picture just to see how I look with long hair, and trust me it is creepy LO…

For The Love Of Speed Trap

Recently there's hot news circulating around Facebook and word of mouth about the speed traps installation all around the country. Rumour has it the number of speed traps installed in Klang Valley alone is 200++!?? Duh~

In addition, rumour has it that the speed trap installation is to 'boost' the number of summons, to cover the financial holes 'they' have been digging all this while allegedly(a nice vocabulary learned from White Collar)...

So, in my long distance driving time, I have be nothing but a decent and rule-follower road user. The speed is within the limit, except some short distance of over speeding, especially the Sungai Dua-Juru road. Come on you have to back me up here... How can you stay 90km/h there right? LOL

Along North-South Highway, I kept it 100-110, and since there was heavy rains along the way, speeding is dangerous! Still, I hate the 'brakers' - those who drive at 100-120 and brakes at every slight curves. I mean, just release your ac…

+1 Celebration: 4th Oct 2012

*Happy Birthday to myself*
Yeepie yay yay!!! ...
...duh...

Years gone by, and birthday is not as excited as it used to be already, especially there's something happened recently (birthday celebration issue, very minor stuff, but sounds kinda speechless stupid and doesn't make sense).

Early in the morning - OK not that early, 9 something? - I 'forced' my two furbrats to wish me a happy birthday.

Had a birthday lunch with SJ and WW at Secret Recipe. Tried the pan-grilled dory with lobster sauce for the first time, and it was nice!


As I was freaking full, so cake was a take-away. The staff introduced me the newly available Turkish Indulgence. The appearance is nice, and the taste is better! Not too sweet, creamy, the lower layer of chocolate is embedded with pistachios, marshmallows and soft Turkish candy. I forgot to take the picture of the whole slice, and only remembered it when it's the last layer's left, so... LOL

Birthday dinner at night, treat from SY - …

Hi New Bye Old: Xperia S(exy)

Image
Bought a Sony Xperia S with an online trader, GneX, after a prolong consideration, research, surveys, and financial re-adjustment. Purchasing something worth RM1k++ freaks me out and makes me paranoid! Finally got my hands on the phone last Saturday, seller was very cautious in packing the item because I had troubles opening it! :)


It's my first Android phone, and I get so nervous and excited at the same time. Almost 5 days of using it, stressing it all out (play with all the 'offline' apps at home, play with all the 'online' apps at work via WiFi), I must say, I finally understand what do they mean by "when you start using a smartphone, you have to expect a battery charge at the end of every day".

I don't actually know what to show about the performance, but I can at least show ... pictures?

Who else can there be when I need models for my phone?? My two furry cowards of course!!



 The pictures have noises here and there, but for my standard/level, it…
