White noise....

Been working late nights over the past couple of days....I suppose I'm running at my max capacity - with back to back meetings and endless number crunching - to a point that now all I can hear is.....

This is so not healthy.

I need a break. This should all stop. For at least a minute.


Not that I am complianing but it worries me to think that I have yet to attempt my assignments that needs to be ptresented in class over the weekend.


Channelling all the faith in me that this is temporary and somewhat will never be permanent.

Beautiful Creatures - To Watch or Not to watch?

If your a fan of supernatural movies - WATCH!

If you want another love story - WATCH IT IN PLATINUM SUITES/GOLD CLASS!


I enjoyed the movie. I definitely enjoyed the quotes. I am contemplating on getting the book - when I finish my 50 shades trilogy (if ever....banyak gila buku tak baca lagi ni!). But then I always love stories that revolves around witches and magic - my favourite witch novel is Anne Rice's the Witching Hour - I bet kalau itu buku bikin movie confirm hit! But then the story will be all tangled with the Vampire Chronicles and whatnot and it might get a little confusing but hey - thats the best witch story ever trust me.

Back to Beautiful Creatures.....

I suppose there's more installments coming and I don't think the Lena-Ethan love story will end just there. There's hope definitely. Nanti cakap lebih lebih spoiler la pulak....since the movie baru keluar sehari kot.

My favourite witch in the movie???.....

* Emmy Rossum who plays Lena's cousin Ridley - wicked and superbly hot! Matila pi gym setahun pun takkan dapat badan macam tu*

To all the guys out there who hated Twilight but still have to endure it for the sake of their loved ones....get ready to go through the exactly same ordeal all over again. To all the girls and dreamers out there....enjoy!

Matikla dah sangkut tengok cite korea.....haih....

My sister had been crazy over this for weeks but I myself had recently jumped into the bandwagon since I am bounded to the couch later due to my ankle injury. Its like love at first sight, borderline addictive to watch this bunch complete task after task in the hour-long gameshow.....

*The Running Man - yeah saya lambat tengok sebab saya takut tersangkut tapi alas - tetap tersangkut jugak*

Obviously one episode became two, then three, and it goes on and on till I am now at my 23rd episode. Guess what, its not gonna stop there, my sister says the actual series had gone up to over a hundred - abis la - tengok apa yang ada pun rasa nak pecah perut gelak kan ni kan pulak ada 100 lebih.....

.....yeke? Kat wiki kata ada about 50 je. Anyways....hopefully it won't drive me insane.


I never understood why others love watching this show in the past. I remember a friend of mine usually rush home on weekends with her husband just to watch the show on Astro. 

I suppose now aku pun same la. Kalau ada astro.

My favourite star is Joong Kok (the commander), Haha, Ji Hyo and Gary - overall diorang ni adalah sangat la cute to a point aku tak tahan la - their actions is totally tak masuk akal punya funny sampai sakit perut kot the next day tengok the show.

*yeah madness*

Cut things short, if you need a laugh go give the show a shot. Sape nak copies holler me and bawa your HDD.



Sprained ankle and being couch-bound....

I got myself injured after a two-day training session at Equatorial last Tuesday....

*yeah - accident dia sebijik macam ni. pics courtesy of Encik Google. Seb baik I was on 2 inch heels rather than a 4 incher*

OMG its super painful.

I manage to drive myself home though. Thank God the roads were clear, no traffic whatsoever. By midnight the whole feet had swollen and it started to get very very hard to move.

I end up sleeping with my hot pack till I manage to pull myself together and head to the clinic the next day.

The doctor says I should be okay since there's no significant bruising. It doesn't turn all blue ke apa. The fact that I can still stand on my feet shows that there's no fracture, so consider myself lucky. But it's not advisable for me to move so much so for the next couple of days I'll be bound to the couch.

The key to getting better is simple.

Rest rest and rest. I was told to just let the swelling runs its course and with adequate rest, I'll be okay in no time. The thing is there is no guarantee as to when I will get better. I am just told to sit still so that I won't aggravate further swelling.

Bagus....just when I am all set in a routine of daily gym run. Ntah bila la nak shed the weight kan? The moment I get my mojo je mula la benda-benda macam ni happens.


Maybe this is my cue to continue watching Running Man.


xoxo. Laters.

Wedding adik alia di bangi....

Its been ages since the last wedding don't you think? Ye la....semua kawan dah kahwin, so tinggal la the very few of us yang still single mingle ni. *grin*. Anyways I ajak Shasha to come with me today so I don't have to go solo....nasib baik la I didn't miss it because the food is super nice. 

Especially the lemak cendawan! If it ever has a name for that dish lantakla I wouldn't know.....its still lemak cendawan.

Hari ni pakai baju merah and contact lense turquoise....what do you think? Cantek tak??


I went all bonkers last month when I get to borong colored contact lenses for only RM40 per box - so I tried colors I never tried before like turquoise and grey...remind me to show off the grey contacts later.

Itu dia cik Shasha at the buffet table.

Jangan malu malu!!! Kalau malu lapar.

They serve this kuih on the table but I can't recall the name....dodol beras?

Oh my, sangat la I ni disconnected with local food. Nampak sangat terperuk at home lama sangat.

There you go...me and alia. We've been friends for so long its amazing how we still look the same like when we were in school. Okla, kat sekolah dulu kulit hitam sikit sunburn and kurus keding sebab selalu kawat kat kompaun sekolah but then being 30 something I think we still look as young as when we were 13.

Just saying. Perhaps even better kan?

*huge grin*

Obviously it would be great if we still weight as light as we were in school. hahahahah! Ok, let's not start with our depressing weight issues.

It was a hot sunny day (perfect for an outdoor wedding) and alia look all cool with her sunnies and whatnot - jeles aku sekejap. Why la I tertinggal my sunnies in the car? Tapi agak saiko kot kalau pergi wedding orang tetiba mengada pakai sunnies? Hahahahahh!

Itu dia lunch hari ni - I had the daging kicap and the masak lemak cendawan with fried chicken - I tell you I wish I boleh tambah banyak banyak sebab sedap sangat.


Thanks alia dearie for having us. Lain kali jemput lagi.

Federal Territory Day Break @ Avillion Port Dickson

The last couple of months had been exhausting....all work and no holiday makes Zuraida a very very very dull girl. Usually Dec-January month is the time for holidays and celebration but then tahun ni was very different - I was couped up in the office instead. Boohoo. But to be honest I had fun - my new officemates had been kind (so far) and work is somewhat fun and something to look forward to again - so there's a lot to be grateful for.

*yeah, I'm happy at work. :p. Despite the workload*

Considering that we're expecting to be busy for the next couple of months, I decided a last minute road trip to de-stress and rejuvenate my tired mind (chewah!~!!!). Tak jauh pun, kat PD je - gebang macam pergi oversea. Hahahah. Shaddap hahahahah, at least tak dok umah tido je kan?


Since takde la apa sangat kan the journey to PD (since it's only 1 hour so and so drive) so tak payah banyak cakap - get ready for a lot of photos coming your way.

*Grin - lama kan I tak post gambar?*

As usual my roadie partner in crime of late is non other than Cik ShashaBlackKatz. Elok la dia ni rajin memandu - if its up to me I hate driving long distance. Ini pun aku kidnap dia last minute. Thank God she has flexi working hours , otherwise I would have been taking the trip all by myself.

Everytime I pergi naik kereta dia I must snap her pics this way. Ye la, kena la tangkap gambar driver!

There you go on the road to PD. Sebab I usually don't drive there myself, I macam ingat ingat lupa the way to town, but what the heck, I read signs and I am not shy to ask around if I'm lost - so we're all good.

We pushed off slightly after 12 and arrived at the hotel right at check in time....

Ho yeah! Since I can go anywhere far, the place nearby should be really good. For the price we're paying we were not dissapointed because the place is so awesome...

Once dah check in and dump the luggages so obviously snap a couple of photos at the verandah dulu la kan. Oh my, the scenery is as if I am kat some exotic island or something (well hey, Malaysia is an exotic country aite??? what was I thinking??).  We had the garden chalet at the far end of the resort, which faces the water chalets and endless beach that seems to stretch out for miles away....with no sight of a single crowd (mind you) so oh my - it was breathtaking.

We had a quick lunch at town (in which I had nasi campur...yums....the kind yang tak ada kat Publika), we went back to the room (sebab matahari atas kepala) and indulge in books...

Well, I read my book with view overlooking the beach, thats not the case for our friend there.

Left the room later at about 4pm for a stroll around the hotel, a swim and a walk at the beach....

I love the hotel!!!! Plus they have activities for us to participate and guess what???

Beach Tai Chi!!!


We had seafood for dinner.  I wish there is better seafood. Its ok la. Nothing comparable to the spot at Kuching Fieza usually takes me. 

The next day we woke up early, enjoyed the buffet spread and gossip over breakfast.

Can it get any better? Perfect weekend kan!

Its a short stint, we only spent a night at the hotel. Lepas checkout we hit the Teluk Kemang beach in search of ole-ole and ice cream kon.

Ice cream kon?

Ye? Ice cream kon yang orang jual atas motor tu.

See what I found??? Gula gula kelapa and udang... time tu macam terbayang bayang all the junk food we had as a kid and dah lama tak makan last last I bedal bawak balik a few pack of these for my officemates.

And guess what? It was a hit ok!!! Especially the gula-gula with the prwan pics! hould have got more of those....

Of course at the end kitorang wajib jumpa our ice cream kon kan....

Itu dia! Kalah BR!


Singgah makan asam pedas before we hit the road again....

Too bad everything's so short aite???

Till next time!
