Sudah khamis dah?

How time flies...

Just reached home from having drinks with my chill babes at the Curve.Gosh its late and its suppose to be a working night.Whatever.I am (still) on holiday..heheh..it shouldn't matter.In fact,my eyes are still wide open.So I think I will stay up and watch DVD's like non-working people do.

*very huge grin*

I did nothing till 3pm except hogging my opera mini.I had a facial scheduled at MTM Japan @ the Cocoon, Gardens MV, courtesy of Covershots Bridal.I was very excited.Not only because it is free,but also because it comes with a skin analysis.

Ni yang those type of analysis yang keluar kat TV screen tu,uber cool.

Rupanya MTM does personalised skin care,so they do skin analysis before every treatment to determine the best course of treatment.

Seriously,it was embarrasing.My skin was so dehydrated that it looks like granny skin, the skin at my arm area is wayy better.Plus I have blackheads everywhere,when they blow up the visual at the screen my facial surface nampak macam nenas.Berbintik-bintik.

Damn it. nasib baik not im public.

At the end I had the oxygen purifying facial,where after cleansing the face and extracting as much blackheads out as possible,my face was sprayed with high velocity oxigen spray yang amat sejuk!Sangat nyaman ok especially lepas the torturous picit jerawat activity!I sampai tertido tido.

I step out of MTM with a clear face,I like!I am definitely going back there next month!

Then,I had my tresses tended to at Centro Salon,since I get to utilise yet another free wash and blowdry voucher. Mak ai...satu hari free pampering,kalau tiap tiap bulan macam ni kan best.

Sigh.

It was late when I finally left Gardens MV,but I was again,happy and relaxed. Sigh.Miss la yoga hari ni.Lantak.We make up tomorrow before my spa session at Villa Manja,mesti best lepas yoga pergi scrub badan dan berurut.

And as u guys expected,after all the pampering I had dinner and tea with the chill babes.Sigh. Lama dah tak melepak after work,I kinda miss it.Dulu bolehla,satu tempat kerja and all,and we use to meet every day.But it's good to be able to catch up,and with the wedding (finally) going to happen in March,everyone is excited!I felt so happy that my friends are happy for me.

It will be great!

Ok,gonna go watch dvd now.I have Legacy and Meet Dave..hmm;which one should I watch first?

Another Fruitful Day

The thing about being on holiday is that my body clock starts getting so disorganised,its like its on a perpetual relax mode.Yet again I woke up to my fiance's call at 11am,and had to make him wait for another half an hour before we head to Covershots Bridal office in Kelana Jaya.

Arif had been excited in meeting CB today,since he wanted to have our prewedding photoshoot in CB's ampang bungalow.Unfortunately since they open the lakeside unit in Kelana Jaya,the bungalow had been closed.

Sigh.

Seriously,aku pun jatuh chenta over pics taken at the bungalow.But then the new lakeside venue is quite cool too,and since I am already eyeing one of the gown's,we decided that we should go ahead with it anyway.

Hehehe.Yuhoo!Great.I like!

Date of the shoot is set in December,and I am taking one of the girls for goen fittings and makeup consult in November.It will be fun,I can't wait!

We left CB at noon,had lunch and part ways coz Arif had to work.Hehehe.Me being lady of leisure head straight to OneUtama to do my manicure and pedicure at The Nail Salon.

*anyone of u nak buat mani and pedi this is THE place.the work is great I neer went anywhere else since my first visit there last month*

Since the mani and pedi is not till 4pm (sebab ramai gila orang),managed to catch up with my collegues and did a little shopping (in which ended up not so little,ish ish).Aku soka sale!I can go crazy. I keep on reminding myself on my appointment at Villa Manja on Friday so I wont overspend.

Nanti takde duit nak bayar spa aku pulak mati tension sorang2.

Sigh.

The day ended well.Went to the movies to watch WallE after the hand and foot work and boy,it was great.Hahahha.Betul kata mereka...rugi kalau tak tangok.

Aku gumbira.I bet tomorrow is another happy day.Hehehe.I have facial and hair appointments lined up all evening tomorrow and they are all free!Courtesy of CB!

I love free stuff!

I better go and clean up now.And get ready for agood night.

*smiling contently*

A Good Day...phewh!

I woke up at 10.30am after a few missed calls by si cik absng tunang...i was really feeling the toll of the yoga class the night before since both of my instructor pushed me on a lot of abs poses.Man,i really hate those days when they say 'today,we are gonna focus more on your core muscles'..damn it my core is so weak i wish i could run away.

Sigh.

But that's not suppose to be the rambling of the day.

Nevertheless,I rose and got ready and was on the road to Seremban by 11.30am.

Boy I hadn't driven so far in a long time.

I was so happy to meet zie.I missed her.Her baby is söo cute..I want one myself!Hhaahaha.If babies were ever sent in via storks and we could order via the internet I would want one.Hahaha.But it requires a man and 9 months in the making,so maybe I'll wait.

*huge grin smacked on the face*

What?Baby pics?

Tak adil la kalau i sibuk2 publish the baby photos when zie hadn't done it herself.So u all tunggu la dia letak gambar baby dia.Tapi dia memang sangattt comel.

*Haven't I said that already?Aren't they all cute?*

Haaa.I am on baby mode.I stayed till 6pm till I bid my farewell.

To sape2 yang tak percaya aku visit zie..ko boleh tanya dia sendiri.

*ye la,orang saiko tu kata she felt a sense of duty to correct/trash people's blog who she thought were bragging and doesn't tell the truth.Eh,ko tak kenal pun orang mana ko tau betul ke tidak?Lagi la kata ko tinggal kat London and aku ni kat Malaysia,what makes you bagus sangat boleh judge hidup orang yang you tak kenal?Kalau setakat for one minute of attention to bad la,sangat la pathetic hidup you sampai the only excitement you get everyday is by slamming people you don't know*

Eh tersasar pulak.

I reached home by 7ish, had dinner and watched the news..then later caught Oprah's Give Big at NTV7.Sangat touching that show,I cried macam orang emo.So that to not get too carried away,I started cleaning my living room.I ended up cleaning my kitchen and dining area too,hehehe,and redecorated the whole place.I even hung picture frames on my wall.

Bravo!!

Now I just need to clean the third room to make space for my new bag wardrobe.Hehehe.Cik abang tunang had already approved,maybe we will go to Ikea on thursday or friday to get it!

I can't wait.My own bag wardrobe.

Sigh.

BESTNYA!

Penat La Labu

Its midnight and i just got home from dinner.Not that I was hungry,but si cik abang tunang wanted to check out the new restaurant nearby my house,so, despite being tired after 2 hours in the gym, I hit the showers and again..went out.

I was slightly dissapointed with myself.I end up with a bowl of mihun sup and cendol at such wee hours close to midnigt. Now I am tired but can't sleep coz my tummy's too full.Demmit.

*and that's the exact same reason I am blogging now*

Sigh.

Too tired too clean either.

*Me and cleaning...sounds like a new paranoia*

Sigh.

I better find a way to get some rest.Don't want to miss my date tomorrow to visit zie and baby aisya qistina.

Life resumes as usual

The past few days had been great.On top of meeting friends and catching up over a cuppa,I spent my days shopping.And it was heavenly.Hehehehe.

I am progressively cleaning my house to the very last bits.Since I have all the time in the world,I scrubbed clean and moved furnitures around.When I get tired,I just stopped and do sthg else.So far I'm done with my room,and I have the living room,dining room and 2 guest rooms to attend to.

Thats why after paying a visit to a few choice locations around KL for my upcoming wedding earlier in the morning,I went straight to Ikea to get ideas for by bag rack.

*Yeah,I need a bag rack for my overflowing number of handbags.Sigh.Otherwise the third room will be a bag jungle*

I am still in Ikea at the moment,content having a few options in mind,yet I can't commit to anything till thursday when I have settled all my dues coz otherwise I can forget about my La Mer facial and the trip to Villa Manja.Which I wanted so bad.

Its getting late.I bette get on the road to the gym,otherwise I will be stuck in a jam and miss my 7pm yoga class.

Mwahhs!!Cya tomorrow!

*Though I would love to attach pics,it's gonna be impossible over the next few days coz I am on opera mini and I am still trying to go about the settings!So bear with me*

Moody...

Si cik abang tunang had a lot of making up to do...ye la, dia ingat senang-senang je nak ambik cuti pastu tak buat apa2...tipula kalau i kata i tak terkilan dan rasa nak menjerit-jerit. In fact, I spent two days mopping at home and avoiding calls from him...



Tapi I takde la inconsiderate. I have come to terms that he cancelled the trip because of work, and somehow the benefits in cancelling it is more than the loss. I don't have to explain why and what, its enough that I know and understand. Bak kata Lea, kita kumpul je to the next trip, boleh spend lebih sikit....kan???



Despite being tensed and frustrated, I DID NOT resort to the one thing that calms me down...



Yeah, merokok itu membahayakan kesihatan....plus I can do other stuff with the dosh and since I have all the time in the world now, I can just do yoga, kan????



What surprises me is that ada la pulak insan2 yang tak dikenali suka-suka hati je menyaikokan diri over the situation.Macam diorang pulak yang tak dapat pergi holiday. Dah la aku tengah sakit hati kan, if you guys noticed, minah ni pulak lebih-lebih....


Aina.....It is so not cool.


Maybe I tak patut panggil dia gila, sebab its not classy of me to stoop to her low tapi aku tengah moody kan, whatever la.Sigh. Hilang pertimbangan yang orang busybody macam ni patutnya tak payah layan je, and that they did that out of envy. Dah la dia tak kenal kita, so they don't have the right to judge and if they do judge, it weights nothing, so its just a waste of time to even bother.


I am still taking my leave. I have decided to take the time off to focus on me, head for a head to toe pampering in KL spa's...in which I didn't do much of late....and focus on my yoga. Dah lama tinggal, so over the last few days I have been taking two classes a day at my gym (yeah, dua kelas ok, sumpah tak tipu) and do more beathing exercise. It helps me calm down. Hopefully by bulan puasa I am more balanced, calm, aligned.


And I am also taking the time to catch up with friends...


Today I had breakfast with Liza and Farah.....this is consolation selepas panas terbakar dengan komen Cik Aina yang sangat tak cool.


*Maybe that's why I never knew her.People who knows me are never like her. They are never that low and inconsiderate.*


Sigh...


Whatever...I also plan to visit zie and her *newborn* baby girl during the weekday...sangat tak sabar.


*Ye la, better go and visit when tak ramai orang visit kan?Boleh borak lama2 sikit. And with the school holidays over, so jalan mesti clear*


Anyhow, the last few days ain't a waste. In between mending a broken heart and neutralising my breath with yoga, i paid a visit to Mid Valley's La Mer counter for "the La Mer Spa Experience" and got these....


Basket of chocs and lemon drink, with a La Mer pouch filled with La Mer's Loose Powder - given away free!!


Did I tell you I love goody bags?? It made my day ok! I had always contemplated on getting the loose powder, but I still have my MAC loose powder and La Mer's cost a bomb.


Now I have one free!!!


I didn't know that they are that G.E.N.E.R.O.U.S!


On top of that they serve you cuppies and champagne (if you don't drink, they have sparkling and mineral water just in case)....coupled with friendly salesgirls (that seem to remember me from my last visit...good memory...I LIKE!!!).... I have to say taht my spirits are lifted and was happy that I was there.


*Dah tau macam ni hospitality dia, next time I got those invites, I will definitely drop by lagi!!!*


Ok la. Got to prep for an early morning tomorrow. Have a good night folks!

Kissing Italy GoodBye...

Setelah bersemangat berkobar2 nak pergi Italy esok, boleh la laki aku drop bomb besar hari ni...

"Yang, trip cancel. Ada kerja"

Boleh tak??? Dah la trip Boracay aku cancel sebab aku nak extra days pergi Italy, sekali itupun dia cancel???

Aku dah bengang tak hengat....sehari moody gila.

*I ni susah nak moody ok.Tapi sekali moody ramai yang ter"kena" penangannya....mintak maap la ye kawan2....wtong day wrong time la ko mintak benda2 mengarut hari ni*

Dah la mula2 postponed!!!!Sekarang cancel!!!!!

Tak tau nak buat apa dah. I still have a bunch of dosh set aside for my pocket money. Rasanya nak book any flight to anywhere and just dissapear. Lantakla kan!!

Nak pergi Boracay sekarang its already too late. Bailey said its raining thunderstorm there in the Philippines, so its definitely not a good time to be in the islands. Damn it. Damn it.

Alternatively he invited me on a shopping spree, coz apparently manila would be on public holidays on Monday. Yeah right. As if I am going to enjoy shopping when my heart is already smashed to pieces in mortal dissapointment.

I don't feel like talking about it.

One month with La Mer...

Jeez, sudah sebulan ke? So kena la cermin-cermin sikit for the changes kan???

So far the changes haven't been prominent, but I realised a few things....
  • All my "jerawat pasir" purges out. The first week was great, the second week was hell on earth, coz it breaks out under my eyebrows, my chin...practically everywhere. But after the third week when everything soothes down, it doesn't feel as bad. Now semua dah kering, and hopefully it won't come back for good.

*I have been having the jerawat pasir for ages ok, and it felt as if it is never going away. Is it gone for good now???We have to wait and see*

  • My skin tone is getting more even. This works to my advantage because nowadays, my skin looks okay and i don't need to use powder yet still, ppl think that I have my powder on. Great. I love.
  • My pores are getting smaller. Yeah. Aku mempunyai masalah liang roma terbuka (not to forget acne scar yang berusia seabad lamanya). My oily skin has not made it any easier. But I noticed that it's closing up now, not fully, but slightly...macam tengah regenerate. Bagus bagus....hopefully by month 6 make-up artist tu boleh kata "yang, ur skin is so flawless u are such a lucky girl!!"......as if he/she knew the skin hell I have been through in my teensy years...
  • In pics, my face look damn clear.Hahahaha..Silky smooth skin here I come..

No need to say so much coz the difference ain't that glaring. But I received comments recently that say's I look more glowing , and they were saying that maybe sebab I nak kawin tak lama lagi. Heheheheh....yeah, put everything on the upcoming wedding.

Anyhow, I hope I write enough to temp u guys. Huhu. As for me I am definitely liking what I am going through right now, crossing my fingers that the miracle broth actually works its wonders by the time I say my vows...

*Glowing...once the purging effect clears I believe like will be more beautiful....heheehh!!*

Morning Talk...

As I step in the pantry this morning I was relieved to see that my two besties are there...yeay, now I can have a conversation to kick off the day...

*huge grin*

So we were joined by two of the department secretaries, in which I love coz they are such a groovy bunch (when I say groovy, I meant GrOOvY ok...hahahahah) and we were talking about how we are looking forward to have glowing skin and graceful ageing when Kak Z (heheheh, not me...we just have the same letter of the alphabet at the beginning of our name) shared a secret of having a lasting beautiful skin....

SUNSCREEN AND EYECREAM.

Damn it....two things that I am laziest to even think of ever....

Well, she reminded us (mostly 2 decades her junior) that the benefits of both sunscreen and eye creams will only be languished much later in life (like in 40's or later) when it is already to late to even lift a teensy weensy bottle of either of them. Apparently one of my partner (who is blessed with wrinkle-free skin...at her late 40's now) sworn over the importance of sunscreen and eye cream in her "must have must do" beauty routine...

*kena la dengar cakap akak akak otai!!!kalau tak macam mana nak pick up pointers kan??*

Sigh..

I haven't hit my 30's yet but I wish I can age with full of zest and energy, and wrinkle free skin (of course, who wouldn't). Despite being blessed with good genes (I believe so, my mom seems to be ageless till see went for radiotheraphy), I hope that I can win my battles over acne (and acne scar!I hate!) and have beautiful supple looking skin...

Heeheheh....I wish!!!!

Tapi biasala...I malas!I am not so dilligent with my beauty cleansing routine. I tried. But over the years I realised that I missed a lot of things here and there...that explains the breakout, raging oily face etc.

*Apa aku meraban ni??Back to the point*

And now the kakak secretary dah takutkan aku dengan wrinkles.....damn it....

Point today : JANGAN MALAS GUNA SUNSCREEN AND EYE CREAM. DRILL STARTS NOW!!!!

Friday Barbeque Party...

Enough gloating about my ex's misery...hehehhe....let's share pics of the last barbeque party (in which I missed my PwC alumni for...sorry ya pare, party buat kat umah gue).

So here it goes....
That's our teeny weeny barbeque pit....hahahaah....takpe la, asalkan kitorang 10 orang semua boleh makan. The party starts at 8pm, then memasak sampai 2am in the morning....damn tiring ok...


Me trying to pose with the pit....

My fiance pun turut serta....see betapa manjanya saya????

Itu ayat untuk menjeleskan ex saya...

Komala and wen chu at the kitchen preparing the goodies. Bugger, takde sorang pun nak amik gambar aku...

So aku amik sendiri...hahahahaahha!!!!

These are the end product of our hard labor....



In which sekejap je sudah abis!!!

Usaha Chef Don harus dipuji...barbeque dia memang sangat sedap sekali. Kalah ok semua barbeque yang pernah I attend before this...

But before we get to eat, we had to sweat it off.....

En Haresh sibok menghidupkan api....diala hero malam ni, without him don't even dream about eating that night....makan kek je la.


Marinating.....uuh, tengok je dah excited...

The following are all aksi2 bila aktiviti pembakaran terbuka bermula....



Sangat gigih si wen chu ni...hahahahah!!!

Tapi bila dah penat tu la baru makan best kan..

The above is my hand made corn...sedap woooo!!!!aku pun tak sangka ia laris malam tu...

Ini gambar muks, yang datang lambat and lepas tu sibok nak makan chicken wing dia, so since dia tak sabar dia dia sendiri keluar bakar...hahahah...in his working clothes and all...


By 12 midnight, one of the birthday boys dah sampai tertido-tido kat couch..so eventhough he
look cute hugging my pet moose and all, I deliberately woke him up so he can cut the cake..

Itu dia...rise and shine....happy birthday blokes hahahahah!

And lepas potong kek tu biasa la camwhoring time..

Dan akhir sekali....harus la ada gambar ala2 Gossip Girl kan....


We had a great time!!!!!Me loving it a lot!!!

*Eventhough my couch still reek of smokes till now and I had popped two potpouri sets out of the can and it still smells.....*

Over lunch

I spread the news to Arif over lunch.....

Arif : Dah break dah?? *huge grin smacked in his face* Patut la dia meroyan last few weeks masa tengok gambar u....

Keji betul tunang aku ni.

Tau takpe...

News that made my day....

Remember my psyco ex's girlfriend that request friend access at FB a few weeks back???

In one of my blur moments, I sent her an email asking her whether I know her, I had recently received a message and this is what was written...

--------------------

Sudah break???

Hahaahahahahah.... *gelak keji tahap Dewa Mahabrata*

Well well well, nampaknya tepat sekali jangkaan aku. Ingatkan selamat bertunang, rupa-rupanya fail jugak!

I bet she dumped him.

*huge rin smacked on the face*

The week starts pretty well, I am definitely very excited!

Friday, August 15, 2008

Aih, macam haram je connection hari ni...

Bila aku excited nak buat kerja....

Bila aku tetiba je ada urge nak research pasal Italy yang selama ini kutunda-tundakan...

Bila aku ada keinginan untuk berYM/chatting/sosial dan apapun yang seangkatan dengannya...

INTERNET HARUSLA BUAT PROBLEM.

*Sigh...Liza, esok still on. Seperti yang dijanjikan we will meet at 8.30am kan?? Apa-apa ko kena call aku sebab hp kena bar....so esok aku tunggu sana terus. Kalau ko tak datang by 9.30am aku angkat kaki okeh???*

P/s : Ada sape2 lagi mau join breakfast session? Obviously Tina tak dapat datang la, so kalau nak jumpa Mrs Ajib kuburkan je la niat tu, dia tengah berhoneymoon sakan sekarang ni. Kalau nak jumpa I dengan Liza boleh pergi CB Bangsar, party starts at 8.30am...

Chewah chewah...party....hehehe...tak abis abis aku ni....

*Another thing, jangan lupa gambar2 tu...and my RedBox card....and my sunnies...heheheh!Banyak la pulak requestnya*

Anyhow, di saat-saat hampeh ini I can't help it but be reminded over some of the affairs I've been burrying at the far end of my closet lately...

*Jangan risau. Bukan skandal seks ke apa...apa la korang ni, cakap je affair terus ke situ???Nauzubillah....*

It dreads me that the condo I bought two years ago has been terminated. I mean the construction has been terminated. Damn u MK**anD......penat penat aku bayar interest tiap-tiap bulan tiba2 ko nak terminate agreement tu??

*There goes my bali dreamlike home that I have been expecting over the past 2 years. Not that I need it now that Arif and I are getting another one but still, I want my own place!*

Now, I am back to square one.Shit what a mess to sort out.Benci la.

So far, I am still at square zero. I still need to go down to the developer's office and check out my options. Then I kena pergi hire a lawyer and terminate all this shit.

*Nyampahnye...nyusahkan aku je!!!!!*

Tak pasal2 aku emo petang petang Jumaat ni!

Sigh...what to do.

Takpe la, maybe its for the best. Maybe without it, I can get a bigger home later when I settle down and have kids.

See...ntah ke mana ntah aku menyimpang ni.

OK, before I start rambling nonsense, I better get back to work. Less than 2 hours till the end of the day.....

Zombie Day

Komala : Zue, are you okay?
Me : Why? is there something wrong??
Komala : U look like a zombie (while making the zombie face) since morning.....u must be really tired or something...

*WTF???*

Yeah, to tell you the truth, I am feeling slightly washed out. Not that I do not have enough rest and sleep, I have lots of them.

Maybe I had too much to a point that my body just feel luggish.

*Luggish - is that even a word???*

Today is not such a bad day. In fact, it will be a great day.Why? Hmm....there are many reasons to it....among them are;
  • We are celebrating Wei Liew's bday today!!!!!And we are having barbeque and drinks by the pool...woohoo!!!!....finally, I am putting my jacuzzi to good use *hehehehe, as if the jacuzzi is mine and mine alone.....*
  • It's Friday, and it's the last working day of the week ;P
  • It get's one day closer to my long awaited Italy trip.....though it was rescheduled to 3 days later than expected, its no big deal.I am still flying a whopping business class seat to the city of love, and its 100% leisure, zero percent work!!!
  • Arif's business partner, Ryn, just invited us to a 4 day 3 night holiday in Bali next December....in which my cik abang tunang seems keen to go. Wow...second free trip of the year???I am crossing my fingers...hehehehe....tak jadi pergi Hong Kong (coz of my photo shoot in December, long story for next time) and now he's replacing it with a Bali trip??? Haruslah aku gigih kuruskan badan....I want to fit in a size 8 bikini!!!! Realistic ka?

See...my zombie day ain't so somber. Though I look dead upfront, I am very much alive inside...

3 hours or so till the end of the day...can't wait....

Thursday, August 14, 2008

Digoogle lagi..

Sigh...

Aku paling tak suka bila orang start google nama nih, macam terasa tak seronok je sebab all of a sudden orang yang tak dikenali cari...

I ingat nak tukar url. So peeps, gimme ur email address so i can inform you guys when i change them ok.

Love,
xoxo

On Wedding Favours

I was online with Liza earlier and we were talking about wedding favours, so instead of just talking and leaving the ideas to imagination, I actually googled for top wedding favours ideas over the internet...

*Because its definitely more tempting if we can see the real thing right????*

And god, did I find a handful of great ideas, rasa macam nak semua je...heheheheh!!!!

Anyhow, these are my top picks, in which should be revisited when I go favour hunting in January....

1. The cute ribboned boxes....

Well, we can never go wrong with ribboned boxes kan? But then I found this color extremely delighting...The Tiffany Blue Box color.....the classic intriguing color promoted in Breakfast's in Tiffany's, can't help but blow a girl's mind away....especially if there is a diamond ring inside it...heheheh.

The thought is nice kan???

But then I know I can never go with that color. Unless I am in white...and all the rest are blue. But I ws thinking more of a red reception???

Sigh....

2. Cuppies


Apakah yang berbeza dengan cuppies ini compared to all the other cuppies we go crazy about recently? Ye la, cuppy giving is kinda the "in" thing lately....

Tengok betul-betul....its the wrapper la.....personalised cuppies wrapper, as opposed to the normal white wrapper we use. Kinda cute and sleek though...tak payah mintak intricate designs on top of the cuppies, a simple swirl will make it look nice already...

Kan???

Definitely something that can be considered....

3. Personalised candles

This is definitely unique...comes in the shape of wedding cakes and guess what, the wedding bouquet as well.

4. Personalised candy jar...

This I like!!!!!Tapi satu hal pulak nak isi ngan candies sampai penuh jar tu...

Maybe it wont be so bad if its a small jar...

5. The romantic "hugging" salt and pepper shaker.

I saw one of this masa kat Chattucak market kat Bangkok dulu, terus terjatuh chenta....and today guess what I found over the internet??
The bride and groom salt & pepper shaker!!!! Cute cute!!!!

6. Other personalised food stuff.

These are other cute items i found, kalau buat pun orang macam geram2 je nak makan....


Apple dipped in caramel and chocolate bride & groom...


Personlised bride & groom cookies...


While browsing through the internet, I also found some very nice favours ideas for the bridesmaids....mestila, obviously I have to thank my bridesmaids (and yes, groomsmen as well) more than other guests, at the rate that I will be drilling them later..heheheh....so I was also thinking of something to surprise them for all their efforts...

*obviously I can't afford a La Mer goodie bag and facial for each and every one of them ala Daphne Iking, so I have to resort on something else*

Among the fancy ideas are...

Personalised bridesmaids cookies

Oh...ini aku suka. Hahahaha....siap ada thank you note written on the cookies....

Heart shaped measuring tape...

Good for the vain...hahahah...like me!

Personalised bridesmaids pouch

Manicure in a box - cute slipper edition

Anyone seen this sold anywhere before???Buzz me...I nak!!!

And last but not the least...

Tissue to Dry Your Tears...

Comel kan????I think if I wanted this I can get it at the Curve, I definitely know they sell personalised memo pads in this design....

At the current rate I am going, I will definitely have to go back and review my budget.

*LOL*

So any say on it anyone????

What I did Against What I am Supposed to Do...

It has been a long day....

I was suppose to survey for my italy trip...in fact I am supposed to do that all week but what did ya know...I end up blogging (heheheh, banyak benda nak catch up ni) and chatting (wohooo!!!!I finally found an e-msgr. Anyone interested to talk, buzz me!).

*Rinie I'm back!!!!esok buzz akak ye!!!Life is miserably boring without you*

In which made me think back and felt like screaming because...

1. I haven't even touched my "Learn Italian in 30 days" book and CD i bought 2 years ago...wtf???Now that I am leaving for Italy, the only word I know is Bon Journo (means good morning!) and Andiamo (means hurry up!!)....two of my cousin's favourite word....demn it!

*how am I suppose to survive without knowing how to bargain for a lower price???I am so in the need of help*

2. Haven't even touched (again) my tour book that I bought six months ago. Seriously, what the hell is happening to me? Am I in an anti-travelling-book mode?

3. Peeked into my bank account and its not at the level I wanted it to be.

*I am NOT happy about it. But what to do??Maybe I need to bat my eyelashes at my cik abang tunang later. I DO WANT that LV bag!*

And that's only part of it...

Lately (actually since we have finally decided on a March wedding), my mind starts buzzing like a bee on what kind of dream wedding I wanted. Si Cik Abang Tunang had already agreed that I can have the kind of wedding I want (heheheh...suka la tu!) and I have been sitting at home yesterday sketching (yeah, practically lukis the whole idea okeh, macam designer pulak) on how I want my wedding to happen.

So far I have ideas for the kenduri doa selamat that I will have in Tampin. Its gonna be so romantic, and I will shock my relatives to the grave.Hahahahaah.Suka hati aku la nak buat macam mana kan....

But then I also want them simple and sweet, so i try not to go overboard. Nanti banyak sangat clash of ideas kang susah pulak.

*See, now I am diverting from what I am suppose to do (like think of Italy) to the wedding*

Sigh...

Anyhow, its still a long way to March. So hold your horses.

Yang pastinya we are going to get some of the hantaran stuff during the trip, and I am sooo looking forward to it. Hopefully he'll pick up good stuff.Heeheheheh.

Anyhow, its 10 minutes to goodbye's so I'll holler you guys tomorrow ok!!!

Ciao!!!

*that's another Italian word...so that makes a total of 3 words that I know so far. 6 days to Italy and counting....*

Kat office...sambil terteleng2....

Akibat suka sangat main cotton bud, ha...kan dah kena infaction telinga..

Sakit seh...berdenyut-denyut!!!

So tadi pergi klinik kat tingkat 2 OneWorld....owhs, doktornya seorang doktor muda yang sangat ganteng!!!hahahaah!!!

*Ini akibat banyak sangat tengok cerita indon semalam*

Anyhow, I came out with antibiotics and ear drops...and sebab dah tak tahan sangat gatal and denyut2 nya, I pun letak eardrop kat ofis.

Sekaang aku separa teleng. Memang sah balik nanti i tido je.....

Tina's Wedding....

My bestie is finally married!!!!!!

I bet all of you have updated, and ini adalah cerita basi...heheheh...tapi gambar aku tak semestinya ada kat korang kan??? Nak tengok gambar banyak2 pergi blog peeja.

The Nikah Day

The newlyweds

Tina look so lovely that day, I was shocked and awed...hahahaha...never have I seen her as beautiful as that day. She is definitely a very happy bride...

Tina dearie....I wish you all the best, many blessing and make cute little babies...asap!!!!!!

So peeps, here are snapshots of the nikah day....

Hantaran, bilik and what not
Girls, girls and girls

Nampak tak itu Peeja duduk bersimpuh???Comel ok, hahahahah

Me and the bride

Well, what to say? The ceremony was simple and sweet...but since I don't get to sit with the bride masa dia menikah (sebab ramai sangat orang), aku takde la emo tak tentu pasal...hehehe...sebab I dok je diam2 dalam bilik pengantin yang ber-aircond...

*keji keji*

Anyhow I love the food. It was good...

The Reception Day

Hari ni, I sampai awal....pukul 12.30 tgh dah sampai, coz I thought I need to help out. Tapi eventhough early I sempat la run my weekly errands, then later put on make-up and what not. Takde la nampak serabai like on her nikah day...hehehehe...

*Sorry Tina, that day I terbangun lambat, then tak sempat nak letak make-up....pastu I drive to your house pun macam hantu.heheheheh*

Guest that I know.....the rest of the blogger babes came way later, in which I can't stay to meet coz Arif kena balik awal, ada kenduri lain katanya.


The drink of the day...pun color purple biru biru macam tu to match the theme color...


I just have to love the pulut kuning cake...sangat tradisional, yet I found it lovely...
Ini cik Peeja kita...siap berbunga-bunga lagi rambut dia...i like!!!
Mana sah pergi kenduri kawin tapi tak tangkap gambar dengan the newlyweds???Thats Liz, myself and my cik abang tunang terchenta...

*over pulak*

All in all it has been a good weekend. Tak sabar nak tunggu Tina balik, boleh gossip honeymoon stories....

*boleh ke???did she use the dice I gave her???The question still remains a mystery to date...obviously the honeymooners are unreachable kan!!!*

Bangkok Pics!!!Finally!!!

Apa Elle, blog aku dah bersawang ye???

Bukkannya apa, saja malas nak update...hahahaha...dah la internet lembap nak mampos. Anyhow, the long awaited Bangkok photos are finally published, so read up!!!

The training ended well... I had fun and the crowd was great, so despite me feeling a bit down for not being able to go out shopping the first three days in Bangkok, I still have fun getting to know new people and enjoyed the food and drinks!



All the Things I did After the Work Ended

Everything ended by noon on Friday, so we had ample time to go shopping. Earlier, we made plans with the Indonesians to hit Platinum Mall to grab tops and dresses...

So we changed, and later got stuck in a massive jam...

Ng....tired and practically sleeping in the cramped taxi cab. Thank goodness cab meter dia go by mileage, kalau by minute macam kat KL ni memang sah sah la kita mampos kat sana bayar cab fare.

That's me and another Indonesian collegue, posing in the cab..

By the time we arrived at Platinum mall dah pukul 4.30pm (yeah, stuck in the jam for more than an hour!!!Ni semua sebab *toot* (aku malas nak complain la)....

So tanpa membuang masa aku pun bershopping sakan. The mall is like those Jalan TAR bazar yang jual kain tu....tapi instead of going on a never ending one storey shop, dia bertingkat-tingkat naik ke atas. I spent around an hour there and end up satisfactorily happy...

*But then I knew if I had gone alone I'd be happier.Sigh...*

Halfway through I bumped into the Singaporeans, and since the Indonesians are heading back to the hotel, I switch groups and join the Singaporeans to CentralWorld, that house designer stuff...

*Not that I am going to buy anything expensive, but then there is no harm in just looking around kan??*

That's me at CentralWorld...the Thai's are so superstitious they have a shrine at each corner you go, this is one of it...

They say if you pray and ask for something, and end up getting it, you have to come back and pay your dues....so I stayed away, heheheheh.

Coincidently there was an open air bazar at CentralWorld that day. They sell those handmade stuff. Quite interesting actually, if I have spare cash to burn...

While shopping at the open air market, I found this...

Strawberry slush!!!!For only 30 baht!!!
An interesting sign board I found in during shopping...



U guys get it???

Penat jalan, I had dinner with my Singaporean buddies at Zen's supermarket Food Loft - an upscale Marche kind of eatery with great ambience...

Actually we are not allowed to snap pics, but nobody seems to bother, so I got to get a few shots of my own...



I had sushi and coconut drink.....

Sorry, no sushi pics. Dah abis makan before I sempat ambil gambar.Lapar sangat seh. But then their sushi was to die for....I sanggup makan sushi the whole week kat sini, they were all soooo fresh!!! I soka..
That's my sticky rice pudding!!!Sangat sedap!!!Not mango sticky rice though....its santan and longan.

But I still love them...

People, that's me with a tired (but happy!) face. It was 11pm and we are taking the skytrain, and please mind the sexy cleavage...heheheh...that is so not the lace of my bra, its the lace of my spagetti strap top, ok?


It's a day well spent...hahahaaah....for less than 3k baht i get to grab two sets of gym clothes, a few dresses, 3 tops and a bunch of bags at Naraya...

*Those bags are not for me...trust me*

The Day I Go Crazy Over Home Deco Items - The Final Day!



The last morning in Bangkok was not wasted to the bin, I manage to pull myself together as early as 6am, had my shower and hit the breakfast buffet....and by 7 something am, had immediately rushed to the BTS Skytrain heading towards the Chattuchak Market.


I have to say that the market is heaven for home deco items.I can see myself flaunting in and out of the market in search for decorative stuff for my future new home....

*That time harusla aku bawak Arif sekali....dia mesti ada, takkan dia tak contribute towards our home kot??(heheheheh...wink wink, paham-paham je la okeh)*

While I was there I sempat ambil name card of a few artist that paints very tasteful acrylic paints, next year when I come back I will definitely holler these people and get paintings yang ala2 zen.heheheh.

But then we can't stay that long coz we have to rush for our flight (and sebenarnya nak spend time checking out Bangkok's duty free...heheheh....).So we left the market by 11am, that time tourist were pouring in like rain, and the heat is picking up, so mental note to self - next time kalau nak datang balik kena datang awal2 pagi, kalau tak mesti aku naik rimas!!!!

We arrived at the hotel before 12 noon, then had the chance to shower, and change and again - repack my stuff that seems to be getting heavier and heavier by the second.

That's me while Missy was checking out...

Painting macam ni la yang aku nak kat umah nanti...penuh satu dinding, ala2 zen. Rasanya kat Bali pun ada kot..

*Nasib baik la si Arif tu ikutkan aje perangai aku yang ntah hape-hape ni, kalau tak mau aku naik gilo*

That's us leaving for the airport....in the Ascot's Mercedez Benz....hehehehe....talk about travelling in class *huge grin smacked on the face*.

That's the Suvarnabumi airport...the view is breathtaking at the light of day ....



My luggage - minus the blue one, that's Missy's. Banyak kan??? Hahahahha, masa packing I realised that there's not enough space to hover all my stuff after the spree at CentralWorld and Platinum Mall, nasib baik aku beli extra bag (yang checkered box tu..)....so tanbah lagi one more handcarry bag.

That's me waiting for my flight...we were farking early okeh...takut line kat immigration unbearable. nasib baik awal, sebab despite being early, we still have to spend slightly more than an hour to check in our bags and go through immigration...i tell you minah kat counter check in tu sangat lembap ok...

That's my 100 baht bracelet...adorned with sequined and faux pearls. Cantek kan???

That's me in the duty free zone. Hehehehe...sempat lagi posing. That thing is damn long we only manage to get half of it. Sempat jalan2 kat designer boutiques there, sigh, nasib baik takde credit card kalau tak selamat la duit melayang beli barang..

Penat jalan, I sempat grab a Black Canyon ice mocha latte - sangat sinful sebab I suruh dia letak banyak2 whip cream, heheheheeh!!!! I don't know what's their fascination over BC coffee, pergi mana2 kat Bangkok tiap2 ceruk tu mesti ada...

That's it folks.....bila sampai KL sudah tengah malam, dah tak larat mau tangkap gambar......
One day I will definitely go back to Bangkok for a shopping spree...heheheh....tapi that time aku pergi sendiri la, takde tension2 lagi....
