See see...cantekkan??? I have super straight hair for ages (except for a stint back in 2005 where I don soft curls ala Kelly Clarkson) and I see no point in curling it again because it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a healthy natural curl but then I can't help but wonder....
So last Saturday I got Mi to pull up my hair for Jo's reception at Eastin hotel, and she came up with an up-do with intricate curl details at the back which looks like this...
Oh sila jangan tanya how it looks from upfront sebab seriously, muka aku bulat cam tempayan. Rasa nak bunuh diri rasanya, but then I dont have a friinge long enough to cover the side of my face like I use to (thanks to my super short lady gaga fringe in June....sampai hari ni fringe I tak tumbuh balik) so it makes me kinda super cranky.....

...C&K is on sale!!!!!
And C&K is not the only one on sale. Most of the shops are starting to slash their prices because apparently, another mega sale had already started.
Walaupun tau tetiba je buat buat tak tau. heheheheh!
And since there's discounts I got more than just a clutch for Komala. I am 100% confident she'll be happy with what we got her sebab seriously, I pun suka and we both have the same taste.
*wink wink - great mind think alike*
Of course yours truly fell again on the "I fell in love with the new arrivals displayed under the bright shiny neon lights" trap today.....
Oh it doesn't look much on picture, but wait till you see it on you....do the catwalk for 20 seconds and voila, I bet you will fall in love with it too. It wraps the feet just nicely, I myself is screaming inside for it.
Too bad its not on sale. Otherwise I'll be happily creating a hole on my wallet. it doesn't come that cheap though....being in the signature collection and all.
*of course, its not as expensive as Aldo. so we can all still think about it*
Perhaps a nice addition to my wardrobe, what say you??

....especially when its designer's.....
....and end up falling in love with the new arrival.
*baru berangan about Burberry Black Label semalam. Mrs LVoe.....I am still waiting for your suggestion here*
After putting up a strong front for over a year now, I finally succumbed to the sale sign and walked in to Coach with Ika after lunch. Of course at first I don't see where's the harm sebab being the strong(er) person I am now (who no longer splurge upon expensive things upon impulse - wink wink), I bet walking in and out of the store will be no big deal until I saw this lil baby....

Phewh, I spent a good hour at the gym. The 30 minute run was good, and I got a loadfull of oxygen in my lungs from my practice sun salutation. yeay. all in all I feel good.
But then in reality is, I never made out of the door of my home once I came back for the padlock. Shame on you zuraida. Shame on you. I thought you're determined today.
I came back and my sis hadn't bathed the cats yet. I felt bad making her bath all 3 cats all by herself, so I drag one cat to the bathroom and start bathing. 2 hours later we manage to bath all 3 cats and clean them up really really good.
What? 3 hours??
Yeah, they're on intensive care. So mandi lama nak mati.
I kow Izzy felt good. She's been happy all night as she sat next to me and cleans her fur.
Oh yeah, that one is a clean freak.
And she kissed me twice!
Oh yeah I thought my cats how to kiss!
Its okay. We still have tomorrow.
Solex itu sangat berat. Everytime I clear my bag I'll put it out, and guess what...hari ni lupa nak bawak pulak!!!!
Camana ni? Kena balik dulu la nak ambik padlock tu.
Potong stim je. Baru ingat nak gigih terus pi gym after work.
Bobo - nampak kamera je mula posing. This cat memang camwhore. Compared to Izzy who couldn't care less about taking pictures.
See? I told you. One day I kena bukak Fb account for my cats pulak. Lagi-lagi Ani selalu online and he just loves to bug when she's on FB....
See....sibuk tanya IT questions?
In a curveball. I manage to take this a few minutes later....

Boleh? I tried waking him up a couple of times but he refused to budge. He simply turn and continued sleeping....
...for over an hour.
Penat sangat la tu.

Reading takes the edge off I suppose. And made me dream. Something that rarely happens these days cause I'm such a freaking sceptic.
A kept woman tells the story of a woman who gives her all for luxury by marrying a rich man, only to find herself in a foreign country, divorced with not a single dollar on her. She was forced to work her way up and finally realised that the life she use to think as perfect, is not perfect at all and that the life she use to look down to and detest, is not so bad at all.
This is a book to all the girls out there who thinks marrying rich is the easy way out.
Because its not.
Because being rich doesn't mean you're inhuman and being human, we are never shy of scandals and problems. Life is how we made it.
I find satisfaction that the heroin finds a nice and decent guy at the end who is also (secretly) madly in love with her. Seriously, it kills me on how proud a guy can be and could never say it. If you love a person and is so interested, why play games and not be straight? If you don't say it then she won't know kan? Dropping hints is not the same as expressing yourself.
Like some people I know. Ehem.
Its a great read. Its just too bad I can't enjoy it at the beach with the sound of the waves behind me.

Ye lah, after my "disengagement"....all food I cooked taste bad. Its either too salty, too bland....at the end it doesn't taste as acceptable as it use to be. So I end up demotivated, malas dah nak masak.
That was over a year ago.
Since my sis just move in and we were clueless on where we should have lunch today, I suggested that we just go grocery shopping and cook so we can save a bit of dosh. So there we were, at our local supermarket at noon and we grabbed stuff for fried spagetthi for lunch.
And the verdict was....
...hmmm, I seem to get my mojo back.
My cooking is now not so bad (again).
Cik shasha, now that I can cook again...boleh la u ajar I masak ye?
Jangan risau, we learn low calorie cooking so we wont bust our diet.
So I got Mi to give me a haircut to be just short enough so that I can not tie my hair. I know I know...short hair will only make me rounder and cuter...hahaha..but then what the heck. I use to rock it back then I will rock it again.
Both Jo and I have the same stylist , Mi, and we are a die-hard Mi fan for half a dcecade now and counting. To be frankly speaking I am so used to her I always feel that I'll get the layers wrong when I cut with someone else. Plus she really knows what suits me. So although sometimes I get to my nerves waiting at the salon to get my hair done, I just bite my tongue and smile, because as soon as Mi worked her magic I know I'll go home like a million bucks.
Kalau orang lain I won't hold my tongue. Heheheheheh.
Jo having huge waves perm done. I have to say I was a tad excited to see how it'll turn up, because I was contemplating a wavy do for quite a while but then to get the do you would need long hair and a lot of patience.
From experience I am not very patient.
Haahahahah. Though I know I don't look bad with permed hair.
I came equipped with my lappy and my newly downloaded TV series. Too bad I forgot my earphones. I was there for over 3 hours (oh yes, too long for cut and treatment right???) but at the end it was nicely done.....
Oh thats the curler machine. It heats up the rollers...funny kan???
After my Kerastase in salon hair and scalp treatment I felt totally refreshhed. This is the look after Mi's first cut....
Oh Mi took her time in 3 stages...that day alone she cuts my hair 3 times. She insist that I should root dye, but since I am still contemplating whether I should change my hair color so I told her not today.
To tell you the truth I have a love-hate relationship with this ash blonde color. At certain lighting mode its just so nic, healthy and shiny and just right stroke of color, you just have to love it. And there are days when I think what the hell where I thinking......isn't it too bright???
But then look at it....I have to say it has perfect match of color and highlights.
See....love hate thingy.
She finish me up sometime at 6pm so I can catch up with a house-warming party but then I didn't took photos then, so here it is, the second day shot....
If I go back to dark color would it suit the short hair do better?
If you're shocked, then trust me you are not the only one. The rest of my officemates were shocked. Hmm....maybe too much ke? Anyways, takpe2, wait till I drop a few kilos....

Zuraida's Food Log
For now there's nothing much there, just a few post on my HL days and pre-usana period. But I was thinking of sharing other stuff, like slimming product reviews there....so if you're interested in any of it just go and visit once in a while. You never thought I'm the kind of person who digs slimming pills and potions do you? Trust me, I have tonnes of those. I have tried a bunch of on the counter slimming products, detox herbal pills from Himalayas, even Pati Halia Mujarab okay, so if you want to know what I think about it, stay tuned.
What? Why bother opening another blog and why don't I just rant about it here?
It'll be too crowded. The blog will be diet specific, including reminders on my gym progress and all....and I can leave about the rest of the world here. Let's just say the blog will focus on my personal wellness, and there I will tend to link more on good food and exercise bits....and leave the travelling, food-bingeing and exploring life here. So life's more balanced.
Hahahah.....agak tak patut bila sibuk diet kaw-kaw then suddenly next post is about you food-bingeing in Thailand or Singapore or Philippines.
Have a good weekend!

Izzy gobbled almost a quarter load of the food before passaing the bowl to Bobo.
I suppose Bobo was happy to get his share. Lepas tu macam diorang suka suka je lari in the house.
But then Izzy still gatal buat muka merajuk.

Have you ever given an ounce of thought if you are ever to meet your arch enemy from high school again, and surprise surprise, she's soon to be family???
....robbers, Bonnie and Clyde death, minus the Bonnie.
....surprise surprise. At first even I myself thought it'll be Paul Walker, but Hayden is such a charmer...in a bad boy charming college frat kind of way...all suit up and nice with the hottest car among all....bila mati pun hensem.
Based on a true story, I doubt the original train conductor is as cute as Chris Payne but then whoever it was deserved a huge thumbs up because the 1 and half hour show is so nerve-wrecking to watch, it takes a real hero to go through what they went through....
The fact that Chris Payne is an eye candy is a huge bonus.
At first I have my reservations....but who can't say no to Josh Duhamel????
The baby knows how to act!!! Love it!!!

....nak kerja kat umah???
Anyways, went to Peek-A-Boo on Friday while everyone else is celebrating Deepavali and my hair turn out great. Despite the fact that my face now looks round like a mushroom, the girls love the new look and thats all that matters....at least I don't look so odd. Perhaps more gym time then I'll manage to rock the hair-do like Jessica Alba....
Oh yeah. That's the do.Same cut and length from before the "zuraida's boy cut era" in 2008. With a decent hair blow I have to admit it can be kinda hot.
Now....to work on the losing weight bit. Its such a bitch.
Since I can't do much about losing weight this very instant, I took a quick trip to Aman Suria and got my nails done at Nail Jewels yesterday. They are having a promo for first trial mani pedi (RM45 only) and 1 hour massage (RM40 only) and since I'm el-cheapo I grabbed both!I have to say the massage is so worth it. Hari ni badan ringan sajo. I suke. And I am rocking the baby pink nails.Though amante does better color. The finish is okay la. I hope it'll last for 2 weeks.
Its gonna be Hari Raya Haji soon. Gotta work out so I can fit back into the kebaya's.

I should thank Jo, because of her I am out of the office, had a proper sit down lunch and now sitting in a salon getting my hair done. To tell you the truth I am getting tired with my hair-do already. Seriously, the stress at work was mounting and most of the time I loathe looking at the mirror with my hair tied up in a bun all the time. Nak kata rambut panjang sangat pun tak jugak....tapi rimas....you know?
So since I still have one more round of hair treatment then what the heck, might as well get the hair done and got it trimmed as well kan? I wanna look my best for Jo's big day! *grin*Takkan la everyone looks great and tetiba there's me....all worn out and tired looking with bad hair day. No sireee!!!!!
Mi had already taken her first snip!
Let's cross our fingers and hope I won't regret a shorter hair-do.
To be frankly speaking I won't regret having short hair till 3 years later (which was the case the last time I had a boy cut hair do) tapi I am not going to go ballistic and opt for another pixie cut so I suppose it wont hit me bad. As long as I look more chic and less despreate housewives at work.....
....which reminds me.....
...I have to start thinking of a new wardrobe.
I have yet started with spring cleaning my wardrobe. Time was scarce recently that I haven't got even a minute to sit back and start re-organising myself. Anyhow I have to find time soon. I need to start trimming the stuff I don't use anymore and making up a list of new clothes I want to replace it with so I wont be getting those ones that I don't need.
ooooh, I need a new pair of jeans.
OMG, my eyebags is killing me.
Will buzz yo with the latest look. Go rock and party!
