Sweep me off my feet baby

Oh my...it'll be swell if I can make it to the Jason Mraz's concert this Tuesday and sing a long to all the tunes and just get swept away (ho yeah....kalau nak duet Lucky with me instead of Colbie Callait you can call me anytime baby!) but I'll be out of the country....


*awat la hang tak bagitau hang nak mai?*

Sigh. Eye-candy kan?

Nevertheless, I just won't let it go just that easy....

....and I am all ready to be swoon over his romantic tunes while I soak in the sun and the sand way way way up north....


I heard its good. Please don't dissapoint me.

*grin*

Ever wonder of how I look in class???


There you go....*grin*

Finally, a class that I can relate to. Numbers!!!!. *dance!*. Its like I'm at my very own personal playground...not that lost little girl in a middle of almost nowhere.

I have to say that for once I am not confused. My DBA classes is usually the most depressing bit of my weekends since it never fails to make me clueless. (Even worse when one of the lecturer label you an undergrad for a stupid draft agenda....I was like duh???? But then nevermind la, should I care? Not!!! Exactly!).

Anyways....

1 dah to t-off to Koh Sa Mui.

Love. Peace. And sandy white beach.

:)

Counting down....


Its been a tiring week. I have been trying to juggle work and classes and the house refurbishment, and I never thought I have collected so much rubbish and junk. Sigh. Time to let go some of the things I own and start making more space.

I think its about time to do some cleaning up anyway. All the clutter is cluttering my personal life, in which is a bad thing. I can use some decluttering, especially now that I have a lot of things to look forward to.

Like the Koh Sa Mui trip due on Monday...

...tick tock tick tock.

I am definitely excited. Its my first trip away (alone) and I plan to use it to my very own advantage - scheduled a cruise, looked up for recommended yoga spot, planned for spa time - since I have done a bit of reading and there's nothing much to do there besides relax.

*grin*

Just got to love it.

It'll be my 31st birthday on Monday. Leaving the country to a place with lots of sand and sun is like a dream come true. - at least that was what I thought when I first arranged for it in March - but then I can't help but wish for that one person to be there with me.....

....for without him, no matter where I go, my heart will be left behind.

2012 so far - in snapshots.....

Oh my...how time flies la kan!!!! Pejam celik its already June and usually, we party in June coz it's my bday month y'all!!!! But my life as a DBA student is making it totally impossible for me to even meet my closest besties lately (ho yeah...salahkan DBA, patutnya salahkan.....grin!) and while doing the course have been a blessing so far, I kinda have to admit that I miss my free time and less-confused self - the one that doesn't have to bother what makes dependant variables, independant variables, intervening variables (see....camana tak gila? apakah??) - and wished that I can somewhat sit back and enjoy a good mid year break.

*Grin*

But still I tried my best to do other stuff so that I will NOT lose grip on life. It is at these kinda times that I must hold on to what I value in life so I don't go bonkers!

*Remember The Hatter in Alice in Wonderland????I would be Miss Hatter ok kalau I lose grip...totally insane*

I kicked off the year with a quick trip to Bukit Tinggi with Shasha sometime in January.....


We got the most gorgeous pics of the higlands (including my personal favourite of the pose at the steps of Bukit Tinggi which was made me look (as if) I have model-like legs.....) and we joined some of Shasha's relatives who happened to be there as well during the short CNY break......so I get to  Oh meet Shasha's favvy niece Raanya! She is definitely a doll!

Okay, her nephew Adam is cute too!

Soon after in February, went to Langkawi (for the very first time in my life , can you believe it???) with Geng Ying for a short R&R (short???Like 5 days of R&R okay!) at the Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort.


The place was sublime. Me likey! I fell in love over and over again with the islands during the island hopping to Tasik Dayang Bunting and enjoyed driving around the island and just soaking into the sun and the sand.

A place I am definitely going back to! Next time I'm there I will look out for the trip to the Andamans, I heard from the GM of Frangipani that its simply to die for!

My bestie, Rafirah got married in February and we got crazy with a make-up artist for her wedding reception....




Expecting the brides photos aite? I was carrying my super heavy GF3 and halfway while waiting I simply got lazy. The downside of having a nice but heavy camera. I should get a compact for special events and on the go....

Another mini break to Grand Lexis PD in early march......


Oh tak abis berpantai pantai aku nih. I so wanted to try the private pool in the water chalets and finally manage to do so. But then I was a tad dissapointed with the service. The staff ain't that accomodating and room service ends at 10pm...bummer kan???? How could you end room service at 10pm???

Shame on you Grand Lexis. Breakfast buffet was so pitiful its a far cry from my Langkawi stay at Sheraton.

*oh I officially love Sheraton Langkawi....call me bias but I was treated like a queen for the 5 day stay, it almost broke me to tears even thinking of it till today.

Enough of beaches and the sun.....I took a short break in April to attend Nieza's wedding in Kuching with Cik Kiah.



We went all touristy the day we arrived and strolled around Kuching town hunting for kek lapis Sarawak and mi kolok. It's Cik Kiah's first time in Kuching so we went crazy taking tourist like photos to amuse ourselves.

*grin!!! Babe, you are such a cool travel companion I want to go places with you again soon!!!!! Buzz me!!!!

Nieza's wedding was something different for me. First of all I have to say they are very prompt in terms of timing and it finishes in a flash! Secondly, I enjoyed the kompang group coz they groove and dance as well during the wedding...hehehe...so value for money okay, tak payah hire girls in tutu's for entertainment....


There you go.....a picture of the wedding couple! Relieved aite finally ada gambar orang kawin????

Fastforward 2 weeks after the Kuching trip....you'll find in Bali with my favourite girlfriends, Shahnaz and Komala.....


May 2012 - Tanah Lot. My most favourite photo of the day and look at Shahnaz's face when the waves hit us! 

Priceless!

Bali was magical. Truly, heaven on earth and the people is very hospitable. I wish I never have to leave Bali and just stay there and immerse myself with the culture. It was drizzling mostly during our 4 days stay so instead of bumming by the beach (which was totally impossible to do because of the mild rain), we spent quite some time shopping (oh love love love their markets - all of them...Ubud, Tanah Lot- and the rows and rows of boutiques in Seminyak) and pampering at the local spa (because its el-cheapo to pamper yourself - why not go bonkers!) and Komala had been so resourceful she found cool hang out spots to chill (like Kudeta - heart big time!....so yeah, I enjoyed myself a lot.

While Komala, Shahnaz and Loges were going crazy bargaining for jewelleries and clothes, I spent some time looking at paintings and sculptures. They have quite an offering, I was so awed with the art, I spend hours staring at painting...I even got back 4 of my own to add on to the new painting I got from HomeDec a week earlier.

I was so happy in Bali I decided what the heck...let's do a lompat bintang y'all.....



Semangat much? Hehehehe!

2 days later I hit the road once again...now with fellow collegues....to the Pearl of the Orient, Penang....


The journey was gruesome. They made us all took the bus and I tell you....sangat tak suke.....

*okay, not good to complaint. sebab tak bayar satu sen pun. be grateful.

The break was filled with a tiring treasure hunt around Penang town. We had to take the bus and public transport, or otherwise the whole team will get disqualified, and complete tasks at each checkpoints for clues.


And while doing so, we were all clad in red so it's like a sea of reddies hitting Penang like a storm.

Despite being massively tired (since my team finish last - at 4pm on the dot!), we cleaned up for the themed dinner at the hotel.

And guess what?

The theme was back to school....



Ada macam student tak?

Imagine that lot, inside one of the most happening weekend night spot in Feringghi....


Takkan pi Penang tak tangkap gambar dengan MJ kat HRC kan?

*grin*

I said goodbye to May with a small pot luck gathering at  Zu Lyn's place where I get to (finally!) hang out with my ex-KPMG collegues....


And guess what?

My Wen Chu will be flying to Hong Kong soon (for 18 months - sob sob) and though I am so happy for her for getting such a good opportunity to grow, I am definitely sad because she will be far away and that I can't simply drag her at whim whenever we throw an event or a chill time-out. Not that we do it that often these days, we are all busy leading separate lives but hey, I'll still miss her.

And guys, look...Wen Chu lose weight kan??? Tercabar la ni!!! Penat okay cari angle baik so I don't look huge next to her.

Muahahahahh!

So next stop....HK? *grin*

Looking back happening jugak hidup aku ni ye....

Okay la, tak sehappening hidup Mrs Dot (babe, bila nak tukar tv series ni??? Drop Dead Diva dah start balik okay!) tapi actually I did travel like almost every month and I love travelling.

So now....what next?

Because I simply felt like it....

*dedicated - Lady Antebellum's Just A Kiss - hati berbunga coz of you? Definitely! Winks!*

Lying here with you so close to me
It's hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile

I've never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back when I'm holding you in my arms
We don't need to rush this
Let's just take it slow

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No, I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't wanna push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright
With just a kiss goodnight

I know that if we give this a little time
It'll only bring us closer to the love we wanna find
It's never felt so real
No it's never felt so right

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No, I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't wanna push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright
With just a kiss goodnight

No I don't want to say goodnight
I know it's time to leave, but you'll be in my dreams
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No, I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't wanna push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright 

Ooooh, let's do this right, 
Just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight

Somebody save me......

I must be stressed...or I must have gone mad....because after months of self-restraint, the shopaholic in me had re-emerged.....



Help!

It started a few months back - and I think expedited sometime last month because of HomeDec and the Bali trip...and now I think it has somewhat grown out of proportion. Not that I don't like what I get...its just that I think I am now having too much of it and had over-indulged. All the restraint and control I have been practicing is all trashed in the bin and I simply get whatever I wanted.

Sigh.

Not good. Especially when I just got a new ride, and took up a financial commitment.

Must be all the pressure at work and in school and whatever not. There's just too much in my mind at the moment, and I feel at times.....lost.Confused. Shopping is a drug I missed for so long, every purchase gave me the high and constant feeling of relief and it somewhat made me ease up a little bit.

I know. This is a temporary high. It's a bad bad idea to overdo my shopping indulgences and it'll soon be a headache I wished I had avoided at all cost in the first place....

Sigh.

I should find a new source of high. I should make time to do more yoga. I have been so lazy these days to even make time for a class a week, perhaps that's where I start to lose my foothold. I am getting back to what I use to be and its so scary I am not liking it.

Oh but I love the stuff I got to bits! Hahahaahah! Guilty yes, but for now...definitely happy.

*these love-hate relationship is confusing aite???*
