I was on the fed at that time. I looked around at other cars, and no one seemed to give me that 'look'. I was actually looking out for that as a sign that something was really wrong with my car. But no one did. So I guessed there wasn't anything wrong with my tyres and I'll just pay a visit to the workshop near my house before I head home.
Not until a red Proton Wira honked me right before the PJ Hilton exit. The traffic was heavy so we managed to exchange a few hand signals which then I was pretty sure he was telling me that my tyre was going flat.
Stopped at PJ Hilton's exit (nearby the outdoor parking), and rang up my dad. Good thing he was at home and he told me he'll be there as soon as he can. I know I can ask some Tom, Dick or Harry to help me out, but I have this phobia of men on bikes and didn't bother to look for help from those nearby. I knew there were a few people who I think intended to give me a hand after realizing that I had a flat, but I just looked away and stayed in my car. I might be overacting but I've had it with bikers after I was mugged and I don't intend to take any chances.
After 20 minutes my dad came to the rescue. He asked me whether I was covered by AAM, in fact I was. Totally forgot about calling them since my car has always been realiable and I've never used its services. So I rang AAM up and they told me they can only be there in a hour to an hour and a half. My dad decided not to wait and try to change the tyre himself.
And here's the outcome. My car with a spare tyre.
spare tyre saves the day
Tuesday, 9:30 a.m: I sent my car to get my tyre changed. I didn't feel good about going to work with a spare tyre so I waited at home till the workshop opened and head there first. I wanted to change the 2 front tyres and the uncle at the workshop advised me to do the same. He told me that I didn't run over anything sharp e.g. nail, glass, etc. but the tyre was swollen and was too worn out. I guess it's due time since I had all my 4 tyres changed quite a while ago (3 years I think) and I only bought second hand ones that time :p
So this time round, I decided on two brand new Barum tyres for my car.On a different note, I managed to get hold of tickets to watch Transformers! I called GSC to make bookings for shows on Thursday and tried twice but they were fully booked. I gave up and decided to head down to The Gardens (with the mind that they won't be too many around checking out there) but how I was wrong. The line was short but the tickets were mostly gone.
9:00 o'clock which was just perfect for me were all taken up. The Gold Class were all taken up too. The midnite show was still available, but a bit too late for me since Friday is a working day for me. They last bet was the 6:00 o'clock show and they were still available but not many.
So 6:00 o'clock it is :)
I can't wait to watch my favorite Autobots!

Since we were already there, mommy and yours truly decided to get a few pieces for ourselves too.
And a few pieces turn out to this!
I got a few suits of French lace, Italian silk and Italian cotton. This is my first time buying Italian cotton. I'm thinking about making them into baju kurung in attempt to cope with the super hot weather these days!
So looks like I have enough for work, raya and other special occassions :)

Anyway, we had a conversation sometime last week about a friend of ours, who used to be pretty close to us, especially to Ms. Lee. However, now she seemed to be avoiding us, well, that's how we feel at least.
It doesn't really bother me since we only keep in touch once in a while, but for Ms. Lee, I kinda feel for her, since they have been pretty good friends for the past few years. It all started when Ms. Lee left the country for a year. She came back sometime last year and until today, Ms. Lee has never gotten the chance to meet up with this friend of ours. Ms. Lee has made several attempts to get in touch with her; in fact more than enough times if you ask me, but she didn't pick up her calls nor did she answer her msgs on Facebook etc.
She did answer her call once, and told Ms. Lee that she was busy and would return her call back. But the call never came.
Why do some people turn out this way?
But giving the benefit of doubt, we assumed that she was having some personal problems and that she didn't want to be around people or specifically around her schoolmates. But then again, we just found out that she turned up for several weddings of our ex-schoolmates and we also found out that she's pregnant! And this was from a girl she was never close with at school, or even after.
I dunno. Isn't good news like this would want to share with your best friends?
Ms.Lee, I know you've done your part to keep the friendship alive. But if the other party doesn't intend to do so, don't stress yourself too much. You know you still have friends who care for you :)
We all lose friends.. we lose them in death, to distance and over time. But even though they may be lost, hope is not. The key is to keep them in your heart, and when the time is right, you can pick up the friendship right where you left off. Even the lost find their way home when you leave the light on." ~ Amy Marie Walz

This guy caught my eye since the movie "He's Just Not That Into You".
I wouldn't categorize him in any of these categories:
1. Tall dark and handsome
2. Drop dead gorgeous
3. A total hunk
But more like the average joe or rather the guy next door that has this cute and decent face. And this guy, he just knows how to work his charms!
I watched "Drag Me to Hell" last Saturday. Probably my second or third midnite movie this year. I try to avoid watching late night shows, since most of the time the screen normally watches me instead :P
It wasn't really the plan at first, Mr. H and I wanted to watch Angels & Demons. (I know we're behind time), but the tickets were all taken up and we decided to catch this film instead. Quite a good watch, s.c.a.r.y. but with bit of humor here and there. I like it! Definitely entertaining!
I'd give the movie 7.0 out of 10.
Anyway, back to Justin Long, he played 'Clay' in the movie, and he is cute.
I like! (Here I am repeating for the second time :p )

Just to share with you that FJ Benjamin sale is on!
Selangor 1 Function Room, Basement II, Shangri-la KL
10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Bell & Ross
I quite like Bell & Ross men watches; known for their distinct square design, but I prefer Panerai. It's bolder and more masculine.
Anyway, for those planning to shop, enjoy! I don't think I'll be making it to this sale, someone's onboard MH 091 and will arrive early tomorrow morning :)
Have a great weekend!

I'm a fan of Transformers since I was a little kid. I try and not miss any of the episodes if I'm at home when I was a little kid. I even had some action figures of them. I think I was probably about 7 or 8. Anyway, I can't wait for the 24th of June!
I plan to catch this at the cinema, if I find some friends to go watch with that is. I went to watch the first Transformers movie with a few of my guyfriends from uni. I can't seem to find any of my girlfriends who are into robots.They don't seem to find them interesting :p
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past and Harry Porter are also in my 'must watch' list.

Anyway, feeling a little less stressful this morning and before I head down to Bursa this afternoon to attend a talk, I browsed through s.h.o.e.s online.
So I'm just gonna go virtual window shopping for now...
June 9, 2009
I try and stay indoors with full air-conditioning these days. Oh Mother Earth, what has happened to you? Btw, I am using the Panasonic Envio at home which is earth friendly :)
Anyway, Melbourne is one of my favorite cities in the Land Down Under. I absolutely love the weather. Sydney is too busy for me and.... hot! eventhough the last time I was there it was the end of summer.
We rented a Camry especially for our trip to the 12 Apostles. You don't need a car otherwise, the tram is convenient if we plan to go a lil out from the city. Everything else was in walking distance from where we stayed. Our apartment was in Lil Lonsdale, right in the CBD (Central Business District). Shopping, night life, and everything else is there. But of course, besides the city, you need to discover other places too, and Chapel St. and Vic Market is not something to be missed :)
When I was there, the Comedy Fest was on. I took the oportunity to check out one of the night comedy shows to see some talents performed. The talents were from all over the world. Bo Burnham from the US of A really impressed me!

Monday. The least favorite day of the week for me, and probably for most of us who has to work.
I left my house at 7:35, a little late than usual. I normally leave about 7:28 to make it just in time for work and to secure myself a parking space (I have no designated lot, you see).
After driving about 5 minutes, I realized I didn't have my office keys with me. Upset at myself for being so gatal to change my handbag (the keys were in my other bag I brought to work last Friday) and turned back. I rushed in the house, grab my keys, and got in the car again. It was already 7:42. I start work at 8, and there I was thinking to myself that I won't be able clock in in time. What a bad start of the worst day of the week.
To my surprise, with my usual driving speed I made it in time. In fact, I clocked in at 7.55 a.m.
Thank god for the school holidays.
I guess today is not gonna be a bad day after all.

I had some questions for my doctor on the treatment I plan to do and gave a quick call to his clinic just now. And as always, I would have to go through the receptionist. The thing is, I don't like her.
I told her I wanted to talk to him but she insisted to know what I wanted to ask about and asked me 1 question after another. And the way she talks is so irratating!
A blabbermouth. Full stop.
I like the one who worked there before, a Filipino. Very pleasant and polite. I have nothing against the person's race, but this Indian lady has spoilt my day before, and she just did it again!
I'm still going there because I am satisfied with my doctor's services. He is this nice, well-mannered Indian man in his mid-40s. Very cultured, nothing like his receptionist. I am so waiting for the day she quits!

Mathematicians figured out the perfect ratio of between hips and waist that puts the sway into a woman’s walk is 0.7. So a woman with a 25in waist and 36in hips would have just the right proportions to carry off a sexy swagger as she walks. Based on these figures, Jessica Alba ranks on top beating hotties such as Kate Moss, Angelina Jolie and even Marilyn Monroe who reached 0.69.
I am a 0.76 - hahaha
I'm gonna start working on my neglected abs and loose all the extra fat I have at my mid-section!
I started doing crutches last night. I did 2 sets of 10 repetitions. I'm gonna work it up to 3 sets of 20 before the end of the month, or more. It depends on how dicipline I am, and I hope I won't loose focus.
I had the similar vital statistics as Cameron Diaz before (I just got to know as I was google-ing celebrities vital stats a while ago) and I'm gonna try and get it back again!
Cameron Diaz's vital stats vs. Yours Truly
Boobs: 32A --- Mine hasn't changed, unless I opt for plastic surgery...
Waist: 26in --- It was 25in, now it's 27.5! Yikes! ---- I need to loose here!!
Hips: 35in --- Mine's 36in
Thighs: 22in --- Mine's 19in
I don't plan to loose any weight, so not too much cross training for me. Just some exercise to keep fit. Maybe 20 minutes on the threadmill/cross trainer would do, once a week. I don't want to burn too many calories. I'm now 48 kgs, and still underweight for my height. This is the heaviest I've ever been all my life and I'm happy! Although I've gotta chuck a few pairs of jeans due to this :p
I want sexy abs!

I bought another book, 'Sisters' by Danielle Steel, and that one I finished in a day and a half.
It was a good book. I would recommend this book to you ladies :)
And the most recent one, I got from Tullamarine Airport, Melbourne. I bought it for 20 Aussie Dollars. 2 books in 1 - in paperback. Both by Lauren Weisberger. Good deal right? It was suppose to accompany me on my 8 hour flight back home.
And it did.. although I only read 3 chapters of 'The Devil Wears Prada' on the plane.
I spent more time sleeping :p We took the late night flight, so it was my normal sleeping hours anyway.
I got the book off the shelf yesterday (after it has been on my bookshelf for almost a month) and plan to do some light reading tonight. I enjoyed the movie and I think I'll enjoy this. About the other novel 'Everyone Worth Knowing' - I'll keep you updated. One novel at a time.

I only noticed this when I was about to get in the car to leave from work yesterday.
And there it was. It was much bigger than a man's fist, more like two.
It can't possibly be made by a bike or a car who took off the moment he/she hit me, because the location of the bump was a little too high, very near to the boot.
Maybe someone was mad at me or for some reason , and wanted to get even with me by doing this? Maybe he/she did it with a steering lock or a golf club?
I was pretty pissed but I knew it couldn't be it.
Then I remembered that on my way to Baskin Robbins the other day, I did hear a loud sound like a knock as I was driving, and I thought I hit something; like a big brick or pipe. I pulled over at a gas station (about 50 meters from where it happened), but my car was just fine. I checked all my four tyres, as I thought one of it bursted or something.(I don't know the sound of a bursting tyre, but it just crossed my mind that it could be that). The sound was pretty loud, but I guess I was too focused on finding something wrong at the bottom of the car and I didn't look around to check the other parts of the car. Plus, Baskin Robbins was already calling me :P
So on the way back home yesterday, I followed the same way I took and my guess was right.
There was a medium-size coconut tree right by the road where I heared the loud knock during the incident.
If only I was 5 seconds early or 5 seconds late, the coconut would have missed my car.
Anyways, I guess these things happen and I'm not gonna fret about it.
But if it were to happen to my DB9 (I don't have one, it's just my dream car), I would.

As I was lazing in bed after a day out, I played around with my BB to plan my month or more like week.
M.O.N.D.A.Y was just a few hours away and I was really excited - NOT.
Anyways, when I realized it was the 31st yesterday (only at about 6:30 p.m.), I knew I had to go get a tub of Baskin Robbins ice-cream. The perfect solution to the hot, hot, hot weather!
So there I was at Baskin Robbins Damansara Uptown. It was quite a long line when I got there. Not suprising. I took my number - 414, and waited for them to call out my number to pick out the flavors I wanted.
Cookies & Cream was gone. I was no. 414, what do you expect :P So I opted for Chocolate Chip and another tub of Butter Pecan. I took 2 quarts, I was tempted to buy two half gallons at first, but I knew I had to control my temptation!
When I get home from work for the next few days, this is where I'm gonna go look first :)
