Meraban sibok....rasa nak balik!!!!!

Yeah... aku nampak gumbira....did u guys notice that I am gaining weight???

I have to admit that the food here is superb.

*sebenarnya, the courtesy of the Bangkok office is superb. They treat us first class ok. Ni kira makan sedap, tido sedap, relaks bangat!!!heheheheh!!!Nampaknya sudah terpengaruh dengan rakan2 indonku...*

Anyhow, just a quick one. Life is a breeze except that as 3rd day of training kicks in, I start wishing non-stop that Missy will somehow dissapear.

Not only that, I wish that someone else could have had come with me instead, and that it'll be great fun.

Coz you see, after training hours are a bore and its a shopping killer to have her around.

So I keep on tagging along the other groups, in hopes that I can somehow blend away and manage to ignore her the next few hours before I hit the sack. So far I have been rotating to spend time with the Singaporeans (on Monday), the Vietnamese (thank God, they hollered us midway...on Tuesday) and yesterday, the Indonesians...

*where I caught my demam Indon*

Teruk kan??

I know. But by now aku dah malas dah nak torture diri sendiri. Sigh...

Tapi tak pe la, at least aku ada cameraman...takde la asyik tangkap gambar close up. Here's one with pink cabs...

So far I haven't been travelling much. Apart from the spa (Health Land, smacked right in front of the hotel), Siam Paragon (twice!can u believe it???But nothing there though....except shoppings malls like the Pavillion in KL) and PatPong (did I get it right??? Its the red light district *wink wink* with a lot of bikini clad girls *or men...hahahahaha, yet to be advised*.....we are going back on Friday to experience the fun...woohooo).

*PatPong is not my idea...its the indonesians...hahahahah.But what the heck, we don't get to do it in KL everyday anyway right??*

At the moment we are grilled to complete a case study report. Sangat tensi.Aku rasa nak give up je.

Hopefully we are released half day tomorrow...boleh pi shopping kat Suan Lum ke, Siam Centre ke...

The Flight to Bangkok...

So far Bangkok has been great.

What's not to like?? Training is fun, you get to meet new interesting people, in a shopping haven and food is endlessly good.

*Plus its free.Sangat diet blunder. Lantakla. I prefer not to care*

The wait in KLIA is brief. I checked in my luggage, got my boarding pass and an hour later, already seated at the waiting area for my flight..

But it was delayed coz it needs to be refueled.

Jeez. In virtue of my day of chaos and clumsiness....I happily snaped pics at the waiting area..

And as I boarded the plane, forgetfully left my coat at the waiting area seat....and realised it only 2 hours later when we have touched down at Suvarnabum (pronounced by the flight attendant as so-var-na-bom, what the heck??) airport...

Sigh....pure case of bad luck.

Prior to clearance at the immigration counter I got missy to snap me this...

P/s 1 : Nasib baik tak kena jerit dengan immigration officer...

P/s 2 : Alhamdullillah, masih belum berlaku Perang Dingin atau Perang Dunia ke-3

I was tired, and exhausted.So we headed straight to Ascott @ Sathorm, where we will be residing till the end of the 5 day course.

*yeah, 6 star hotel. bilik dia sangat cantek!!!fully equipped with all the facilities (washing machin, kitchen with microwave oven and cooking hub and fridge, as well as state of the art AV equipment).but no flat screen tv's. bummer!*

What made my day was this...

They give out L'Occitane as toilettries...wakakakakaka...

Tiap2 hari aku kumpul shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion set.

*Its ok. Missy didn't bother to open even a bottle of it, she sticks to her May shower gel.So I got all the pleasures to sapu all the toilettries till Saturday*.

I am definitely loving it!

Tina's Bridal Shower....

Post yang agak dah basi....coz I bet most of the girls had already posted the jiz of the event.

Before that.....GREETINGS FROM BANGKOK!!!!

*huge grin...though I felt fat at the moment, I am happily content!*

Back to what I'm suppose to write...

Last Sunday had been a hectic day. After a full day shopping with Komala and settling bills (as well as packing), I have again rise as early as 8am to shower then later pick up Liza (my partner in crime), so that we can both pick up Tina's cake...

There you go....the two main organisers...

In between picking her up and being at Redbox (where we had the party), we got lost in deep down town old Ampang (somewhere kat Ulu Langat there) for half an hour, the rush to Bangsar for threading & waxing (and wash & blow at Rich's salon....Tina, ur fav guy dah potong rambut pendek, tak jambu dah) and rush back to change and make-up before Arif pick us up at 12.30pm.

We ran a bit late (coz of my hair), which later translate to (very) minimal make-up. Tapi tak pe la, not the girl of the day, so kalau aku comot2 pun takpe.

*owh, the pink top is from cats whiskers....nampak cantek, tapi rasa macam boleh terjatuh bila2...agak menakutkan*

In the process, I forgot Tina's gift (and since she hasn't got it yet, I practically can divulge further details) and totally forget the cue cards for activities....so we end up just eating and singing.

*OKla tu...nasib baik buat kat karaoke*

Here are some pics of us having a great time...



And this is the cake that made us go ding-dong between PJ to Ampang and lost at Ulu Langat...

*Liza dear...kalau aku termoody masa kita sesat tu, aku mintak maaf ok. PMS seh.*

Next...me with the girl of the day...

Babe, you are getting married soon!!!!! Congrats!!!!!

*ok ok, hadiah u i bagi u next Sunday ok?*

And though I have to say early goodbyes, I do hope all of you guys had a great time!

Janji bapakku

Kata nak datang pukul 6 ptg, ni dah 7.30 malam baru dia call kata odw.

Sigh...

Ntah pukul berapa aku sampai KL balik malam nanti.

A quick one...

Banyak betul benda kena buat hari ni. But at least most of the things need to be done is cleared, including the arrangements for the bridal shower on Sunday.

*Aku sangat excited. This is the first shower I organised. Hopefully it runs smoothly*

I still need to go and pick up my laundry, get stuff for scrapbooking, pack for Bangkok....

And in amidst everything, my dad decided to pull out the "DAD" card and pick me up later after work to make sure all of us balik kampung tonight for my nenek's kenduri.

*Yeah, nenek decided that she wants to do a kenduri arwah cum doa selamat tonight...among all nights, and tell the rest of us at the very last minute. Arif busy and can't make it, so at first I have that excuse to miss the cue, but then now with my dad suddenly becoming so noble.....*

Sheesh. Dia tak pernah datang jemput aku ok. Datang my convocation pun tak pernah.

*Nasib baik daddy dearest decided that he will give me moolahs to beli barang hantaran kat Italy. Ngehngehngeh.....harus la jadi daddy's favourite girl this next couple of weeks*

With that I'll be missing my Friday night drinks with my officemates, but what the heck, we can always have it some other time...

*Which later led to me offering to host a barbeque when I get back from Italy. Suicidal kah??? Aku tak pernah host barbeque...but then, it would be fun, heheheheh!*

Anyhow....I'll be clutching my laptop close to me the next couple of days and if Ascott Bangkok has free wireless, you will definitely hear more from me.

Till then, have a good weekend peeps!

Drooling Over Spa's....

I know, I am suppose to be in training in Bangkok and not on holiday. But it does not hurt to be well informed of the spa's that I can go to for R&R...

So far the cost is mindboggling. Kalau tak cecah RM400 tu tak sah. Tapi aku silap google ke???

Whatever it is, here are the picks that came up when I google "Bangkok Best Spa's"...

1. Divana Spa @ DVN and next to Emporium mall. Signature recommended treatment is the hot stone therapy.

*I suka hot stone therapy. After treatment rasa lega je urat2 semua. Sangat best. Sometimes I had it done kat Urban Retreat @ Curve*

2. Mandara Spa @ Bangkok Marriot Resort & Spa.

Ini sudah memang terkenal famousnya. Tapi since harga lebih kurang, I will reserve this till dater Italy, so that I can utilise the RM50 voucher per treatment that we got during the Estee Lauder sale.

3.Ananda Spa @ President Solitaire, Sukhumvit 11.

Jeez...gambar spa dia sangat cantek!!!Its claimed that this is a garden of Eden in amidst the bustling city. No spa menu, can't actually gage how much damage it will cost me. So I will have to KIV (again).

4. Spa Botanica @ Sukhotai Hotel.

Gosh aku tak tau kat mana ni, tapi its in a hotel and the pics looks fabulous. Buat air liur mula meleleh.

5. Spa I Am , also located in the Sukhumvit district. Ini terlebih pricey. Can dream, can never happen.

*Plus the spa menu is in Thai, so aku tak paham satu patah perkataan pun*

Sigh...

Takpe la, maybe nanti bila sampai kat sana baru decide.....

Buat Rakan2ku Yang Beranak Kecil...

Baby anda hanya boleh pakai lampin mahal????

Takpe-takpe, inilah masanya nak jimat kos....

Apa tunggu lagi??? esok amik cuti sekerat hari.....

Yeay!!! Sudah Thursday!!!!

I refuse to feel negative today because it's my last day of living in training hell, and it will end in a few minutes or so...yeay!!!!

*Even the course evaluation form is already at hand....ngehngehngeh...should be I be an angel and just pretend not to care, or be devilish and list down most (or all) of the pitfalls that makes the course obviously NOT successful??? I believe the objective have been failed miserably*

But then whatever la. Yang penting in 3 days, I will be hopping on a flight to Bangkok and spend a week training there. And after 5.30 pm (when working hours endZ), I can feel free to indulge on whatever Bangkok has to offer...

*Hey, jangan fikir kotor okeh. Obviously I am more interested in shopping, shopping and shopping....*

So later after lunch, I am going to google on "places to go" and "things to do". I am soooo excited!

*Lantakla if I have to bunk in with Missy. Sigh. Over the past few days, I have come to terms with hellish stuff that my heart somehow soften, and for a minute I feel like I may be nice to Missy next week. I hope it's not spoilt halfway through or anything. I hate to treat people badly*

P/S: See, betapa lembut hatinya aku???

I wish money grow on trees....


If so I would like to have my own money growing lab (macam those weed factory they have in Weeds) so I can be a millionaire overnight....

*And hopefully the money grows overnight...mak cik kayo!!!*

Kalau banyak duit boleh la bershopping sakan...

But then...

August ni kan nak pergi Italy.Sigh. So kena berjimat....otherwise I will have to kiss (more) LV bags goodbye. Plus, nak kena start beli barang hantaran kahwin untuk cik abang tunang lagi.

Kopak la gue...

Money matters aside, August will be a blast! With Tina's wedding coming soon (08.08.08 : aku pulak yang tak sabor!) and my long holiday confirmed (boss dah approve my leave from 16 August to 1 September...gilo bila balik September nanti aku akan kelihatan fresh and glowing tahap dewa Guanyin, heheheeheh!)... I can't help but felt eager and excited...

Sigh..

Next 3 days will be hectic. My officemates wants to have our occasional drinks and fling on Friday, and we agreed on Chillis. ohhh, tak sabar mau rembat nacho's (lagi!).

Then Saturday mesti busy packing, cleaning, catching up with yoga...

*I think there are other stuff I am supposed to do that day. What have I been forgetting???*

Then on Sunday (my flight day), we are throwing Tina her bridal shower! It's all set....adrenaline pumping and all...tapi ada insan2 yang masih membisu....

*babes, if you are reading this, you know who you are, reply my mail please!!!!*

And yes, the blogger babes are part of the guest list. Aku tak sabar mau berjumpa mereka....

Too bad I can't stay till late coz I have to catch the 5.50pm flight from KLIA, but what the heck. At least I am there, and we have loads of fun!

Ooooh....makin excited.

Later will have to go through my list of things to clear before I leave for Bangkok. I don't want to leave any loose ends that can make me go bonkers when I come back.

And yes cousin Elisa dearie, I will email you my Italy flight arrangements by tomorrow so that you can arrange to pick us up in Milan...

My cousin Elisa.....I miss you loads since last Christmas re-union!

Ok, got to go. Mau isi the course evaluation form now....

When Lost in Limbo

OMG...I have no idea what's playing in my head. It definitely doesn't jive with anything that I am suppose to learn today...

*Not that the topic is anything new. I knew most of it already from years back while doing my profesional paper. Just can't recall even a single piece of shit since morning*

I think I totally shut out once Miss Kay stepped in. I am definitely not in the mood, and irregardless what she says (or do), I have stopped caring...or even trying to fake any form of interest. It's third day through the course, thank God it will all be over by noon tomorrow, otherwise I just might as well kill myself from boredome.

There is nothing new being in Miss Kay's class....standard bragging, down-grading and deviating from topics exercise that (by now has) turned somewhat sour. I totally quit participating with the excuse that I am never good with consolidation topics, and simply lay the burden of getting the answers to case study queries to the rest of my groupmate.

*yeah, call me spoil sport...whatever....it won't bother me coz I don't care. I still get my CPE hours at the end of the day...so chill okeh!*

Came out for fresh air in between breaks and lunch hour with a face that's totally demented. Somehow the lack of oxigen in the crowded training room and my mental block had translated to an empty face. Gosh, so not good.

This is the worse training ever.

Something need to be done. Fast.

Kalau Pemalas Nak Buat Kerja Tu Bagitau Je, Meh Aku Komplen Sampai Ko Diberhentikan...

Macam sial je akak cleaner tadi...

Yours truly have to admit that I visted the toilet a lot, because I drink a lot of H2O's. So last 5 minutes I went to the loo to relieve myself. As I step in there is a sign "Wet Floor" and a pic of an orang lidi slipping, so naturally what I understand from that (stupid) sign is that the floor is wet.

It so does not mean "No Entry, Toilet Cleaning".

That's two different sign...supposedly. Coz the latter has an orang lidi cleading picture.

Ini bukan first time aku nampak both signs ok....aku bukan naive (or bodoh).

As I go out of the loo, the cleaner suddenly shouted at me.

"Kotor la...pijak sana sini.Tak nampak ke tanda tak boleh masuk??"

Aku paling anti orang jerit jerit ni.

First of all, buat ape la ko bitch nak jerit2. Papan tanda tu tak kata No Entry, dia just kata Wet Floor.

Dah la ko silap guna papan tanda, ko nak marah marah aku apesal.

Ko ingat aku nak bagi muka ke???

So aku jerit balik.

"Yang ko pakai papan tanda silap tu apesal???"

Pastu boleh tak dia ada hati nak jerit balik. Then jeling-jeling.

Apa lagi, aku pun blah then cakap...

"Kalau tak nak kerja, cakap je la pemalas. Aku boleh suruh cleaner company berhentikan. Baca tanda senang pun tak gheti, pergi balik belajar macam mana nak jadi cleaner la dulu!!!"

Ambik ko. Mau lawan aku time aku tgh sakit hati....

A class with our very own Dolores...

Miss Kay came to class today with her very own 'Professor Dolores' uniform...

Imagine that in light pink.....u will get her exact look today.

*Tapi dia bukan caucasian ye....but yesterday she got her hair permed in big curls....so macam the hair lebih kurang la, cuma panjang sikit*

Baru 30 minutes in the course, she is losing somewhere at "I know what everyone is doing......does that measure efficiency" and there goes blah blah blah of how efficient my team was and there were pointers and such on how to improve efficiency....

Ironically it does not impress me...since the talk of efficiency doesn't really jive with intangible assets. But what the heck. Plus, the fact that she goes on and on about how efficient you can be if you focus with work then there is no need to stay late...yada yada yada...

*Which maybe explain why she once ditched her senior in amidst a job in a middle of broad daylight to get a hair perm....maybe she's damn efficient. Too bad later the job turned sour and all the blame rest on her senior. Pure case of bad luck*

I lack respect to people who does not practice what they preach. My heartrate is racing faster and the temperature up to a point of no return...

Soon, I will be somewhere in la la land...

Before I ramble non stop of how I hate this course, I better stop here. I wish Ms CeeCee to continue teaching us, but then we are graced with our own Dolores, so most probably we are stuck here the whole day...

If only I can magic my way through things like Harry Potter...

Back on the ciggies...

Teruknya....sudah lama berhenti hisap ciggies, sebab tension yang amat semalam aku rembat sekotak dari En Tan....

*Do not fear. I bet this is a temporary thing. It will stop as soon as the one kotak yang I rembat semalam abis. Macam sayang je nak donate....sebab itu ciggie free*

Anyhow, the course this morning is conducted by Ms CeeCee *bukan nama sebenar* instead of the infamous Miss Kay. Ms CeeCee's class is way better...I like, so aku sangat suka hati all morning sampai ada jugak kadanag2 I participate in team discussion and answer q's.

*As if participation is not compulsory...hhehehehe...usually aku buat bodoh je*

Sigh....

5 days to my flight to Bangkok....tak sabar rasanya. Lantakla stuck with Missy pun, I will deal with that when the time comes. Just the thought of going away for a while is blissfull...

OK, gtg. Nanti aku tulis panjang2 kantoi pulak.

P/s : I know some of you are waiting for pics. It's still in my camera and the battery is still not charged. I'll get to it tonight ok. So have a little patience...

At a state of a blur....

I was enthusiastic to go to work today. It's first day of training and I am eager to finally get out of my seat.So I woke up as early as 7am today (despite not having to cook lunch...I use being in training as an excuse) and by 8.30am sharp, I have stepped in the office.

I was the second person to settle down at my 'super-hiway' common area.

That's how enthusiastic I was.

But then things change within the first hour in the training room.

My instructor is the infamous "Miss Kay" *bukan nama sebenar*, who has a notorious rep in my ex-firm. The thing is, the rep was so well known that as she step in and spent the first 30 minutes prancing her credetials, you get suffocated to the point of puking because all the bragging is simply empty words.

It was not as great as she painted them.

At first it was bearable, then I went off the radar when....
  • Miss Kay started deviating from one topic to another then go back to totally unrelated topics when she provides explanation....that at the end of the day leads to something pointless that in the first place does not address the initial point she's referring to;and,
  • Reads from the slides and then again, repeat the above....which at the end she spent more than 10 minutes to (again) explain a totally unrelated matter. Kalau setakat baca slide je aku boleh buat sendiri okeh...
  • Taken my training time to advertise (over and over again) on upcoming training courses (organised and fully coordinated by yours truly) so we can push our clients to attend;and,
  • Providing crudely remarks such as "this part of the course is more advanced, so we are not explaining it now because we only explain it at partners level"....wtf, are we that dumb that you can't even teach us the basics of its?; and
  • Insufficient time to address case study questions, and when the mere time given is up, says " I know you can;t finish it in time...I'll give u 10 more minutes". Duh...dah tau tak cukup masa, kenapa impose the case study in the first place???Planning of activities sangat mengelirukan...

I can go all day whining. halfway through the morning session I felt absolutely helpless, lost (because of reason 1 and 2 above) and I have almost practically given up...

I felt attending the course is pointless. What's the point of teaching if you can't relay the message effectively???

*ohhh..i lopa. she did it because she can't actually do the actual job herself*

Miss Kay's course suck big time!

And I have 3 days to go on the course. Wish me luck!

What a tiring weekend

The weekend was a tiring one,but i have loads of fun.I want to show off pics but i somehow has to figure out how to change my opera mini settings first.

*damn i hate IT tech stuff.its mindboggling*

So everyone have to hold their horses and wait...

Anyhow,went to Lea's wedding in Klang today with Farah,Liza and Sheena.The wedding is so beautiful...she must be one very happy bride.

*I wish mine will be as good as hers.But damn she can fit in a size zero dress.I envy lots!*

Somehow the wedding makes me forget of the bad hair trim I got yesterday.Dah la aku tak cukup tido,tension je everytime I see myself on the mirror.Nasib baik the hairsolor is ok.Otherwise tobat la aku tak pergi sana lagi..

*No,the cut ain't done at PeekABoo,aku kini sangat menyesal sbb berpaling tadah.Now I have to live thru this horror till December*

Ok,I am going to stop whining now.

Sigh.

Esok my courses will start.So will only update at the end of the day.

Have a good monday ok.Nak layan Supernatural jap then catch up with my ΕΊ's.

Hugs and kisses!

Cool...

Cathay Cineleisure's Platinum Lounge is so cool...

Aku kebosanan kat umah tadi, so I blackmailed Arif to taking me here to watch the Dark Night. Hehehehehe.

*Dah la manja, spoil lagi aku nih. Sigh*

He didn't want to go at first coz he's tired, but he can't resist me. Heheheheh.So we got tickets and march in the lounge by 10pm to catch the 11pm movie.

Damn this place is cool....
- it has free wifi...which explains why I am blogging now.
- the ambience is great
- it comes with complimentary drink while you wait. I am not sure if its refillable, will remember to ask
- it has 2 OSIM massage chairs....hmmm...someone is hogging it now though. I hope she leaves soon so I can get a few minutes ride.

I have pics...will upload on Monday okay!!!

I heard this movie will take up around 3 hours, which means it will end sometime at 2am. I hope I can still wake up early to go to the Estee Lauder sale.

Till then, ciao peeps. I am going to go and enjoy my extra plush platinum seats ( and calamari rings...tonight is an exception...heheheh).

Jumping Yippee

I missed my daily dose of Ezora yesterday coz Arif picked me up at 6pm to go to KLCC and get these..

*huge grin smacked in the face*

I am truly blessed. My eyelash batting and scrooning worked!!!

Thank you so much dear!! Yeah yeah...I know u love me....

*Shot to the moon and won't be back so soon*

What a good start to the weekend.

Berjinak2 dengan opera mini

I finally found something more stable that allows me to surf the web from my hp.Sometimes nak guna hp i utk surf and blog macam agak lancau sket sebab dah la asyik tersangkut2,selalu je terdc.

The new downloadable opera mini software from maxis manage to ease the stress,and guess what,i am liking iy so much, you will be able to hear more from me next time.

ok la.need to explore this thing and watch saka at tv3.cya peeps.

On babies....

I was down with a fever yesterday. I slept till almost 12 noon and watch gory DVD movies at home that makes me feel even more sick as my stomach churn with uneasiness...

* I watch Long Khong 2 and Timber Falls. Thank goodness I didn't have a heavy lunch. Otherwise I'll puke*

But that's not what we are going to dwell on today. My enthusiastic blogger friend Wawa, had just given birth to a bouncinhg baby girl today!

*I think so la, coz her post are all made today, and the newborn looks fresh. Otherwise it must have been sometime yesterday*

Congrats babe!!!Now you can buy more girlie clothes and Umar and Hamzah will have a baby girl to be amazed with.

*Brace for more queries that might blow you to the roof...and do blog about them, I find it amusing...heheheh...wait till I get my own mini me's*

Over the radio today I heard about Jessica Alba's birth...

*yeah, I (finally) installed my radio and sent my CLK for a treat at the workshop. Its on a tip-top shape (minus the engine mounting that needs to be fixed ASAP). And the radio is great!*

She got a normal childbirth. But it was said that she was such in good shape that the labor process is so smooth, she didn't even scream. It like the baby just came out on a water slide...wooosh, and there you go...hello world!!!

I envy her.

Moral of the story.....I am so gonna stick to mommy yoga classes even when I am pregnant. tak kisah la kalau orang kata those kind of classes is useless...but I believe as long as it makes me practice good breathing, by the end of the 9th month I shoukd have pefect breathing in check and have a wooshy labor like Jessica Alba's.

*Me soooo into hollistic birth. You all rasa ada tak those kind of clinic in town???Kalau ada I should have money stashed for my labor....coz it'll cost a bomb*

Don't worry peeps, aku punya lambat lagi...hahahahah...

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

Going away....

In exactly 12 days, I am scheduled to fly to Bangkok on a course. Yang ini confirm. Flight itinerary and hotel bookings are in place. But the I am going with the last person on earth I expected to be with, Missy.

*ala, yang panggil aku cheapskate tu....sigh*

That's why lately I have tremendous motivation and discipline to go to my yoga classes. I am in fact hoping that my body will get in tune with the poses and (lucky enough) remember how i get from one pose to another so I can practice when I am in Bangkok. Looking at past history working with her, I might need a high level of patience if I am to be in the same room with her for a whole week.

So recently I received a mail from the course coordinator confirming my dietary requirements, then I asked about the room.

She replied...

"We are not sure if Ascot has a twin sharing room. We will advise you shortly once we can confirm the details"

Tak ada twin sharing room???

Happynye. I might get my own room...in which I can happily go in, out and about quietly....

Sneaky...

*Crossing my fingers and praying hard*

The thing about weddings that made me buzz...

Sigh. Everyone is getting married. Everyone is excited to the max.Hahahahah...I suppose its fun and adrenaline drenching to have so many things "to-do" (mind you, the long list....hmmm, I am yet to even cover anything in it, tapi agak extensive jugak. Tak percaya pergi look at Tina's list).

Ok...let's not babble to much but go straight to the point. Things that I look forward to (come my wedding day) is...

1. The Bridal Shower/ Hen's Night
Non-stop girlie time.Hahahahaha. If men have bachelor parties, then why can't we bachelorette have one? So far the ones that I have been to is quite toned down and not-so-out-of controlled ones, and being Malaysians, that is quite understandable.

*Not that I wanted to be in any rowdy ones...but it will sure be exciting to try new stuff kan?*

But the point is, we have fun with friends that matter. Tak kisah la rowdy ke, tak rowdy ke.

*I have in mind a belly dancing type of bridal shower with organza flowing everywhere, sexy song and dances and lots of people I know. Hahahaha. Laid back yet sensuos....ehmmm...*

And of course, the time I eagerly wait in a bridal shower/hen's night is the gift opening. Hahahaha. U just might never know how kinky your friends can get.

Enough said.

2. Lingerie shopping.
I love shopping. Period. So anything involves shopping excites me....and I can definitely spend hours in a lingerie shop.

Too bad we don't have lingerie outlets like the ones in the US. Siap ada tempat lepak semua. Sigh. Maybe kat Pavillion ada....should ry and check them out.

3. Meeting the Designers
Yeah, and choosing and outfit. Which will later turn out to be gorgeous. No cinderella-like woosh there you go outfit's done.....I believe that I will have a blast going to fittings after fittings and fittings...

4. Picking up jewelleries.
Tipu la kalau u kata u hate the blings.....trips to the jewellers can shoot me up to the moon, apa lagi la if the desired blings are within reach...

*praying hard for the Bvlgari jewels....and Tiffany's....*

5. Spa, spa and spa
Need to say more? Sape tak soka pampering and loving?

I have came up with a list of spa's around town that I want to visit during thr month to my wedding...among them are...
(i) St Gregory Spa @ Park Royal KL - went to the one in Penang and it was heavenly. The body bliss aromatherapy massage is to die for.
(ii) Villa Manja @ Chulan - heard good reviews on the spa packages, where it was said that you will be treated like an Egyptian queen. wah wah wah....agaknya apa la rasanya jadi Cleopatra??
(iii) Cemburu Spa @ Cyberview Village Lodge - this is mainly because of the place. I just love the chalets....stayed there once and it's heaven just lazing there over the weekends. I so wanna go back!
(iv) Thaan Sanctuary Spa @ OneWorld Hotel - macam best je. Voted best spa in asia. Eventhough its practically at my doorstep I have yet to test the place. It should be fun then ain't it??

Sape la aku nak heret for all this treats??

6. Of course...the honeymoon...
Sape tak nak pergi honeymoon lepas kahwin angkat tangan!!!!

Heheheheh...see, sorang pun takde.

I see sand, sea and blue skies. I see me in ahot bikini (yeah, if only I can tone my abs and hips). I see me lazing at the beach with a book.

I see me shopping.

*ok, that's uncalled for.Maybe not too much shopping and more of something else*

*Huge Grin Smacked On The Face*

There are lots more...maybe if I am free later there will be a part two.

Ciao peeps.

Pretty quiet...

Its almost 11am and the morning has been quiet so far...

Where is everyone???

Anyone free???Buzz me. I am really really bored...

Sigh....temptation lagi pagi2 ni!!!

I have a simple life.

Every morning I wake up, shower and go to work. At work, I will down my HL shake while browsing through emails. Then I get to whatever I need to do for the day.

In today's email from CoachNMuchMore, I am (yet again) tempted with some of the Juicy Bags...

*me = sucker for Juicy Couture stuff at the moment. I wish I can transport the whole Juicy shop (including the staircase) into my own mansion (if I have one, in which I don't, coz at the moment I am living in a shoebox)*

What caught my attention??? These does..

*Juicy Couture Velour Bowler*

Sangat keji!!! I have been eyeing this for months. I especially love the one in pink...tapi aku ni agak comot, so maybe the black one suits me better.


Its going for RM675 a piece....OMG, aku sudah menggigil.

*Macam mana nak save duit pergi Italy ni???Aku dalam dilema...*

But then as I scroll through the email, I found this...

*Juicy Couture Key Lock Soft Leather Hobo Bags*

Aaargh!!!Another piece of heaven!!! Aku ah la soka bag dengan lock besar2 ni. This is a bit pricey, it goes for RM1,050...but its leather, so its a good investment kan??

*Dunia ini sangat tidak adil okeh....bila time2 aku tengah ada matlamat (so called purpose in life) mula la godaan2 macam ni datang...benci!!!*

But what makes my heart mealt is this...

It comes in a pink dustbag!!!!

My willpower is running at its all time low. Maybe I should discontinue all this emails, tapi if I do, then I won't be buzzed if there are great offers (like this!). Sigh. Its okay. Maybe its a blessing in disguise. Sigh (again).

So what's up with you guys lately??

Masih tak cukup handbag...

The day I say that I have enough bags to live by....that will be the end of days.

Sebab trust me....I am a serial bag-a-holic. And I felt like every season ada aja bag yang aku nak. Nak buat macam mana ni???

Sigh.

And no matter what my cik abang tunang says....no, my bags are never enough. And it won't hurt to have more...

So as I was browsing through the net, I found this...

*LV Trevi Damier...another bag dropped from heaven*

Need a review??? Click here.


I am very very tempted....

Monday again...

Weekend is crappy when you are broke...hehehehhe....

But then thanks to a dear friend (who I haven't seen for ages), I still manage to have a great weekend....not that the weekend ain't great if he's not around...hahahah...tapi ada orang belanja makan and tengok wayang kan, obviously la great....kan???

So after lunch with my cik abang tunang and future MIL, I went back home, freshen up and put on my new purple stripe dress....

I have no idea kenapa la lately I keep on buying stripey dresses...but then, this is not as bad as my beetlejuice dress...so I decided to shoe you guys the full length view...


Not bad at all....dress bought at Cats Whiskers during the shopping escapade with Alina and Fiona the week before.

So he picked me up at 6pm, and we went for dinner @ Marche and movies later....dia belanja tengok Journey to the Centre of the Earth!!..

Ok...that's my long-time friend....and our bread pudding, with a generous amount of white milk....sangat la yummey...

*bukan my friend ye yummey, the bread pudding yang yummey...besides, I know him since I was 14....that was like ages ago ok....sangat tak de perasaan*

The movie was fun!!!Too bad we didn't get the 3D glasses.....so tengok macam biase je la. I heard that they gave out the 3D glasses at Mid Valley, and it was awesome watching it on 3D. Takpe la, I'm not that keen to see dinosaurs jumping out of the screen anyway.Tapi baetul cakap Liza, the movie is quite entertaining...

At least its way better than Hellboy! Enough said. Aku tunggu the Dark Night and Mummy 3 pulak lepas ni.

Yesterday I went to my mom's bestie, Auntie Fizah's, one year old daughter birthday party.

*Happening seh, satu tahun dah ada birthday party. Aku rasa dulu masa aku setahun pun tak macam ni. But then I wouldn't know, right?*

There was so much food!!!!I makan macam nak pecah perut (literally) then balik umah tido....

Heavennya dunia.

Haahahhahaha.I wish today is not Monday....

3 days with La Mer...

*Ini post takde kerja...whereby I ramble not stop over nothing*

Well, you guys must have read the post when I got my bday freebies from La Mer.For those who had missed it, click here. U will get the full blown account of it.

Usually one sample bottle can last me around 1 to 2 weeks or so. That is based on my past experience hacking samples from over the counter.

*yeah, I have to admit I am a sucker for samples, and this is my 4th mini bottle of creme de la mer....kalau aku jadi salesgirl aku dah chop diri aku ni sebagai cehapskate...hehehe...asyik ambik sample je tapi tak pernah beli product*

**but then again I never met the same salesgirl twice.hehehehe!**

Anyhow, since I got my mini set I have been religiously drowned into my beauty regime. (yeah, harus tayang kegigihan kalau mahu prove to cik abang tunang that I REALLY REALLY NEED this set). Sangat keji.

And guess what???In three days, I found out that...
*yeah, inilah akibatnya bila tak buat apa2 kat umah, then ada cermin besar dalam bilik, habis semua aku belek!*

Jerawat makin kurang .... yang mana ada dah mula kering...
*segannya, dah tua bangka pun ada jerawat*

Pori pori makin rapat....yeah, itu penting. Kalau boleh hilang terus.Biar invincible.

Muka terasa makin tegang. Ini mesti effect lifting serum tu. I like!!!!!.Ada garis2 kat leher ini yang ingin kubuang, u all rasa sempat tak hilang before botol cinoni tu abis??

And my face is now a bit lighter.

Sigh. Bila la cik abang tunang will come to his senses....lagi 7 bulan nak kawen ni, and kalau start sekarang there will be ample time to transform me into a glowing bride.

*I think!!!muahahahahaha!!!super evil laugh*

Debit Card vs Credit Card...which is better??

Korang ingat hidup orang yang takde credit card macam aku ni sangat dandy ke???

Hehehehe...ye la. Ok la jugak agaknya. Sebab at the end of the month kurang sikit fikir pasal hutang. With the rising cost and everything. not having a credit card actually helps me to curb my spending extravaganza....so at night tunang aku tido dengan nyenyaknya because I complain less of an ever increasing debt.

*Apa kaitan tunang aku tido nyenyak bila aku tak de hutang???hehehehhe...obviously yourstruly kena la jadi hero bila cik adiknya kesesakan....paham paham je la*

But then, all the convenience of having a credit card pun takde la.

No online shopping.

No cashless purchases.

No extended credit line....(hehehehe, the one I miss the most, yet hate to face when the bill comes).

Menggelupor bila dapat tau bos nak hantar pi outstation. Then have to over and over again remind the secretary that a fat advance is required, coz all my dealings are in cash...

*ceh ceh ceh....macam bitchy je. Padahal duit takde tu...*

So my last resort arrives in the form of....


And so I dengan gigihnya cepat-cepat pergi transform my ATM card (yang kaler kuning tu) to the new sassy Visa Maybankard semalam....so that in case aku stuck kat mana2...aku boleh SOS sape2, masukkan duit dalam bank and voila, swipe swipe, as long as ada tanda penyelamat bertulis VISA.
*Sangat keji niatku ini...*
Tapi....
I just got wind that if we use it at petrol pumps, no matter what the amount of petrol is pumped, it will automatically deduct at least RM150, in which later when the transaction has gone through and verified, the remaining balance (of what is not pumped in) will be cordially returned.
Apa ni???Sangat tak efisyen as compared to the normal ATM card, yang approve the exact amount on the spot!!!!Aku tak soka!!!
Nasib baik dah boleh buat online shopping since June....kalau tak mau aku menyirap2 naik darah kat sini meroyan memikirkan kenapa aku tukar kad in the first place...
Dah la kena jaga bagai nak mati. Coz it's linked to your bank account, and if hilang and si pencuri swipe semua your account balance, then that's it...
*Harusla simpan number Maybank on speed dial, or somewhere easily accessible...so that if the worse thing ever happen (touchwood!!!) boleh la call Maybank asap*
Now I miss my credit card(s) bagai nak mati!!! I wish it was never cut in the first place!

Kembali bersoka-ria di pejabat

As I browse through my emails in the morning, I was enlightened by the news that my middle eastern job is not put on hold due to unforeseen circumstances..

*visa application aku fail ke??*

Hati yang sudah berdebar-debar excited nak pergi ke negera orang ni kembali ke normal heart rate. Sigh. What to do. Takpe la, takde rezeki.

Alamatnya next week aku dok dalam training room la seminggu. Bosan seh.

Anyhow. Again, its a blessing in disguise. Hujung minggu ni boleh la bersoka ria bercanda ngan cik abang tunang. Hehehehe. Umah pun dah kemas berkilat, baju semua dah abis basuh (tinggal nak lipat saje, aku ni memang sangat malas nak lipat baju) so weekend ni macam ala2 laid back gitu (lagi!).

Arif dropped by to pick up documents for our Italy visa application during lunch. Sian dia, muka macam penat je. Since its early (and I am farking hungry...perut berirama jazz tadi). So he drove me to Taman Tun and we had lunch at Selero Nogori...

*Aku suka aku suka....gulai jantung (lagi), masak lemak ikan keli salai, terung goreng (lagi)....itu sume favourites!*

Sigh...

I dig good food.

Oh yeah. I bought tickets to Helboy II tomorrow.

*bukan Gold Class...couple seat aje....melampau la tiap2 kali tengok wayang pun mau pergi tengok kat Gold Class je*

I hope it'll be good...

Wandering....

The Day I heart La Mer more....

I soka freebies!!!!

*who doesn't?*

And because I sign up for La Mer's flyers and such after purchasing their product (so far La Mer foundation and La Mer Gentle Cleansing Gel - i like!!!!), they wish me happy birthday every year and give me birthday freebies as well....

Sebab aku mula berjinak2 dengan La Mer akhir tahun lepas (missed my bday!) , this is my first time claiming the gift. So yesterday after work, I dragged cik abang tunang to KLCC's La Mer counter untuk bersocialise dengan the salesgirl and claim my birthday pressie. Inilah dia...

*La Mer Cleansing Oil, La Mer Lifting Serum and Creme De La Mer (gel type, i found out I like the absorption better than the cream type) and a cute pouch to fit them all*

Hatiku berbunga-bunga. Sampai umah terus buat facial with my new freebies....ikut step by step what the salesgirl, Azura, thought me.

I have to say that now, I heart La Mer even more!!!It makes my skin feel so supple, lifted (yeah, you can feel instantly the lifting sensation all over your face, and I just wore like 2 drops of it on me) and clean. Sampai pagi pun rasa fresh je....i like!!!(for the xxxth number of time!)

Cik abang tunang witnessed my kegigihan towards clear skin at the counter last night...and I was batting my eyelashes like mad showing how interested I am. Tapi one full set (including serum, eye gel, radiance water what not) will cost me RM3,600.....woohoo....bila la aku nak dapat bonus setinggi gunung???

Sigh...

With such pleasure aku dengan happynye menemani cik abang tunang makan di....

* Melting Pot Cafe @ Concorde*

I have expected this anyway, and since its been quite some time ago that we had dinner together, I purposely skip my HL shake and went for dinner.


Tada!!!!Cantonese Kuey Teow and Hot Chocolate.....the marshmallow...yummey!!!

It has been a good day....

Tuesday, July 8, 2008

Tiba-tiba aku emo sorang2....

It has been a great day. In fact, the day was a buzzing day that I don't feel like time even moved, and suddenly its already 5pm.

I didn't even get to blog (or bloghop) much, since I was busy with a lot of things...

*hehehehehe...you know what*

And it was only recently that I manage to find time to read my favourite pages...and I so heart the wedding of Juliana Ibrahim (ala, yang jadi Isma dalam darama Saka tu). She look so beautiful! I wish that I will be as beautiful as her on my wedding day.

*And because of her I dah go gaga over her photographers...sigh. tapi aku takut aku tak mampu.Ye la...me not so rich...sob sob*

So as I was reading on I found this poem at her blog....and I found out that she read it during her reception.

I felt so touched. Tiba tiba rasa macam nak nangis je....

It is just so lovely.

Mari masak spagetti....

Hahahahaha. You all mesti ingat I dah give up with my lunch cooking habits kan???

Sangat silap okey. I masih gigih memasak. Kadang2 saja ja tak update sebab tak ambil gambar..

But then ada banyak request...so mari memasak bersamaku...

Time memasak pun kena sexy....ni practice untuk bila kawin nanti...so that hubby lagi berselera nak makan...

Tapi jangan risau, masa aku memasak semalam aku sendirian di umah tengok the Sarah Connor's Chronicles kat 8TV...

So menu hari ini ...pan fry chicken spirelli...

Ini la rupanya from start to end. Its damn simple....just tumis bawang with a bit of oil, then splash the diced chicken (already lumur'ed with mixed herb spices) sampai garing...

Then dish in two tomatoes (cut into cubes) with a bunch of tauhoo....i like the one yang dah digoreng...macam garing garing gitu...

So, here are the champions yang mesti ada...

Garam (obviously, secukup rasa), herbs (rosemary, grounded pepper and paprika) and the spagetti sauce...

I masih ada some leftover Kimball spagetti sauce from my last cooking session. So lepas dah masuk the spaghetti into the pan fried onions, chicken, tomato and tauhoo....I just added a few tablespoon of the spagetthi sauce, then rencah with pepper and paprika...

I love paprika. It makes my spagetthi sangat sedap....

Inilah hasilnya....
Ish...terbalik pulak. I thought I rotated this pic. Anyhow...tada!!!! Dalam kuali je la ye....I didn't move it to a tupperware till hours later...

The Weekend...

Saturday...

As planned earlier dengan gigih aku bangun pagi2, had an hour of yoga session at the gym (coach Foo, Vinyasa Yoga, 11am to 11.50 am......I heart you!Next time I will definitely rajin turun gym on a Saturday morning) and later joined Alina and Fiona at Mum's place for lunch...

*gambar diorang takde...mereka pemalu orangnya*

Mum's Place @ Damansara Perdana is one of my favourite restaurant. I instantly fell in love the day I first came here (thanks to Lady Bos, she infected me with the soft shell crab).

Sampai2 je I had this...

Bubur Chacha...

Gosh sudah berabad okeh tak makan benda ni. And it was so yummey, the taste, the condiments, semua cukup...


See...happy face!

*muka ala sepoi2 macam tu...sebab takde make-up, takde lipstick semua....ini muka suci baru abis yoga*

Abaikan kawan aku dalam gambar seterusnya okeh....yang penting gambar food....

We had nasi putih, with ikan jenahak masak asam pedas, soft shell crab and terung goreng....muahahahaha...sangat sedap. Aku soka hati...

Lepas puas makan we went for a shopping spree at a few boutiques in Damansara Perdana. Gosh I am tempted to buy so many....but I ended with only 3 tops....

*ye la...aku kena jaga budget. Nanti pergi Italy takde duit apa kes???*

Setelah penat bershopping sakan...I bid farewell to go to Puchong to attend baby Ryo's 4th Bday Bash.Ryo is my ex-deskmate, Anna, firstborn. Dah 4 tahun....dah besar.....aku masih anak dara...hehehehe!!! Foohoo...bunyi macam sangat happening je for a 4 year-old. Heheheheeh.

This is taken while waiting for Elle to pick me up at Giant Puchong. Aku ngan Puchong tak jive sangat...I don't know a thing on how the road works in that area. Sigh. Baling la aku kat tempat lain (Ampang takpe).

We arrived at Anna's house sometime close to 7pm. Ni Elle punya pasal la, buat aku ternanti-nanti...

*acah je babe, jangan la sedey*

This is Elle at Anna's pumpkin patch....

Yeah, dia tanam labu. Imagine bila labu tu tumbuh melingkar-lingkar....mesti happening!!!!!

Aku nak labu jugak!!!!

This is us....the lady posing in tudung top right is Anna...
Yang best tu kat umah dia we get to have bubur pulut durian!!!!

Macam tau2 je aku mengidam...ehem ehem....sedap!!!!!

Sunday....

Hari ni pagi2 buta aku dah bangun....hehehehe....tipu la tu. Actually, Fiza woke me up!She had to come by and pick up her HL stock from me (yand sudah bersawang, literally). Don't fret. It's actually a blessing in disguise. Hadn't she buzzed me I would have missed my 11am Gold Class show at OU....my dear fiance bought as Gold Class tix to make up for his temper tantrum the other night (ngeh ngeh ngeh...me, spoilt?maybe).

Its my first time at a Gold Class cinema....and I am liking it. I enjoyed Hancock over Coke and fried calamari.

*Sangat keji, macam tak ingat2 that I am suppose to be on a diet. Perut kempis sikit je mula la on rampage eating spree....NOT GOOD!*

Anyhow...Hancock was okay. Its quite funny though, having a superhero who suffers identity crisis (and amnesia) and struggling to belong. I suppose everyone needs loving, even the superheroes one.

*Tapi kalau Will Smith la inginkan chentaku akan ku beri sepenuh hati. Hehehehe. Funny, with supefrhero power....heheeheheh...freat in bed???*

Lets not go to far.

After the movie we had lunch at Selero Nogori (owh, i dig the terung goreng, ikan keli bakar and masak lemak jantung!!!dub dab dub dab, akan ku impikanmu sampai ku balik nanti) and later went to Sunway Damansara to shop for houses...

*cheh....cakap macam beli umah tu senang macam beli baju*

I know...we have a unit already for settling down after the wedding. But arif thinks that we need something bigger (heheheh, i like) and he's scouting for options. But I made him stick to the one we have for now, just in case that I might not like what he found. So he promised that he won't make rash decision till we both agreed on the house.

*Sweet kan???*

Anyway, I like the condo unit that we have now. It had high ceilings (at least that's what it looks liks kat showhouse la) and I love high ceilings.

Sigh...

We later visited baby Amber, daugther of Kay & Lutfi (very close friend of Arif), at Puchong later. Dia sangat comel. Sangat puteh gebu. I jadi sangat geram.....tapi dia tak mo ambil gambar. Tiap2 kali nak snap je dia pusing. Snap je, pusing lagi. Maybe tak suka I ambik gambar dia sebab takut nanti dia glamor! Hahahahaha....so I took these instead....


Gambar goreng pisang tinggal secubit je...yang balance nye tu aku abis makan....heheheheheh....

Anyhow...I had a great weekend. laid back, but great. *huge grin*

Friday Night Free Dinner

Hari ini amat busy....actually not so la, tapi macam ada kerja la jugak. So this is like a long-delayed post that have been outstanding since morning....

*sebenarnya excited mahu terbang di awan biru..ngeh ngeh ngeh....mengada-ngada*

These are pics from the last department do...I have to say that the food is good enough and I am happy..heheheh. For those not around due to oustattion jobs - guys, u missed the barbeque!. Takpe-takpe, your outstation allowance sangat banyak. You guys can go there yourself anytime..

*p/s : Boss depan meja aku ni ada OneWorld card, boleh pinjam for discount!*

So here it goes....

That's Kas Sarah busy hogging over food. heheheheh. No pun intended. Dia first to arrive. So I don't have anyone else to pick on..

The following are among the choices of food that we have that night..

Fresh seafood & barbeque. Actually we have western and japanese as well, tapi aku dengan kejinya sibok nak makan...this is my plate...




The desert nampak sangat sedap kan?? Actually memang sedap pun...

Komala, we ate them for you, no worries....

The following are faces I meet every day (minus those yang takde sebab pergi oustattion) .....

*ala, kebanyakannya semua familiar faces kan??*



To end it all we celebrated the July birthday party boys & girls....

*okeh la, a bit matured for boys and girls..hehehehe...i have to admit*

It's creme brulee okeh!!!!

The weekend that follows, though I thought would be pretty slow, was definitely not!
