Torn between Italy and France

I can be very indecisive when making decisions.

And when it comes to choosing between these 2 options, I'm stuck again.

Option 1: Acca Kappa
This brand name that hails from Italy has been around for decades and I've been wanting to try their products since I got to know about it.



I haven't sampled the Hibiscus range yet, but I'm so tempted to! I've got a kenduri in Seremban this weekend, but maybe I'll make time to swing by KLCC or Pavillion to check their on it. How does hibiscus smell like? I'm so curious!

I'm imagining it to be sweet and fresh... but I could be wrong.. I so wanna try? The Wisteria range is another one that I wanna try...



Option 2: L'occitane
This is a more familiar brand since we have a number of stores here in Klang Valley. I've tried a few of their products before and I have no complaints. I like it.



I went in their store again yesterday in MV, and tried the Peach Blossom range and also Lavender. I like it!!
A plus point for Lavender is that is has quite a number of products; ranging from body lotions to scented candles :) Very tempting.



And the Peach Blossom is sweet and fresh. Pretty in peach color too.



Acca Kappa or L'occitane?

Spoilt For Choice!

It's been a while since I made time for this humble blog of mine. And I thought I'd spend some time to write something today.

I've been busy surveying, getting quotations, meeting up with people and scouting for items for a small ceremony that will be held at my little shack in PJ. I'm getting engaged! The date has been set, and it's gonna be in the month of Syawal.

And of of the things that I have been doing homework on, is on my engagement ring. Girls and sparkles, what can I say? ;)

I'm planning to get my ring from the US. I've checked a few big diamond retailers online like Zales, Kay Jewelers & Heizberg, and I'm blinded! I'm looking for certified ones, IMHO even though you have to pay a little extra but at least, you get to know what exactly you are paying for.

I went to Tiffany in KLCC last weekend to double check my ring size. Yup, it's 4.5. And since I was already there, I decided to take a look at what they've got to offer and the sales consultant help me out a bit based on my preferences, and she is amazing. Her name is Anna and she will pick out the ring that suits you best. And so much so, I must agree :)

And now I have something on my wishlist... I have a rough idea of what I want, and Anna got me stuck on this particular one. hehe



I have some time to decide on which one to choose, but this particular one at Tiffany is definitely one of my options :)

Ouch!


I have ulcers in my mouth!!

And this time one of them is on my tongue!

The pain is killing me. I can't talk properly and I can't enjoy my food much :(

I used to apply Bonjela those days (I used to wear braces in school and mouth ulcers was a normal thing) but that was more than 10 years ago :P

Any new stuff in the market that I don't know of?

Putting butter over your ulcer is one of the traditional ways my mom would recommend, and also gargling water with a bit of salt in it.

I've even tried putting salt directly over my ulcers one time, and I couldn't help but cry because the pain was unbearable. Don't think I wanna do that again. EVER.

Music & Donuts For The Soul

Last Sunday before heading out from Midvalley, I made a pit stop at Krispy Kreme to get something for tea. So, I bought a dozen donuts - half of the original glazed (my favorite!)and another half of the others. I can't remember what I picked, but 2 of them were the ones with Hershey whatnots.



And.... I purchased a dvd of MJ's concert in Bucharest. My first ORIGINAL dvd purchase after god knows how long. I am a loyal supporter of pirated dvds :p


I haven't gotten the time to watch it yet. I thought of doing it tonite, but I just remembered today is Tuesday and "Desperate Housewives" will be on tonight.
Tomorrow night then.
MJ, May God bless your soul. I love your music.

I'm so happy because it's a Friday!

Wooohoo!

I've been very busy this week in the office and out of the office, (I've been working from home for the last couple of nights), and I'm glad that the week is almost over. Although next week will be another busy week, I'm not gonna let it spoil my weekend. I've got a few things lined up and I shall put work aside for just these two days :)

Have a good weekend peeps!

Tick Tock Tick Tock



I have been waiting since 9:30a.m. to present some materials to my VP. However, due to an unplanned situation, she has postponed this meeting and I'm left waiting for her to call me once she is back in the office. I don't mind waiting since I have more time to tidy up my presentation but then I am having a horrible period pain right now and the last thing I want to do is work!

Out of the 12 months in a year, I take about 6-7 MCs on the first day of my period. My period pain can sometimes be unbearable. Right now I want to lie down with a hot water bottle on my tummy. I don't want to be at the office.
Urghh.
I'm not taking painkillers this time, but when it gets really bad, I take a capsule of Ponstan 500 and one Panadol Menstrual. This combo was what one of the doctors at my panel clinic recommended when I went to get an MC a few months ago.
Anyway, I'm hoping this will pain will subside soon.

Weekend With The Family

My initial plan was to take last Friday off, but since my colleagues decided to have my ex-VPs farewell tea that day (she was only available that day), I cancelled my plan. After work, packed my stuff and head down to PD with my parents. We had a big family gathering from my dad's side of the family. Almost all my dad's siblings were there including my uncle who is working in Dubai.

My grandma (from my mom's side) called me earlier that day, and wanted to treat me for dinner. Since we were heading to PD, she decided to meet us at PD Yacht Club (it was my birthday and this was really an impromtu thing). My parents & I checked in at the apartment and straight to Yacht Club to meet my grandma. My birthday is not a big hype for me especially at this age, so yeah, we had a small celebration. We left KL at 730p.m, so it was a bit of a rush with the traffic and some construction work, but my grandma insisted so we went anyway. I got an evening bag from her. I don't have many, I normally borrow them from my mom, so now I have a gold one to add to myvery small collection :)

Thanks Tokmak!




We had brunch the next day at the club as well, don't know any good restaurants in PD, so as always the default would always be to the nearest club. That's my favorite fruit drink - honeydew.

It was great to spend the weekend with the family (I don't do this often, ya know). There were approximately 26 of us, ranging from 84 years old - my grandfather to lil cousin Faiz who is 2 1/2 years old. More birthday songs for me and cake cutting from daddy's side of the family this time :)

Thank you all for making my day :)

Behind Every Great Love is a Great Story

This movie is an all-time favorite of mine. Being in love is the best thing in the world and I'm sure it's something all of us agree. I'm feeling a little mushy today, so please bear with me ;)



I am no one special. Just a common man with common thoughts. And I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect, I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived. I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and for me, that has always been enough. - Duke



I'm gonna watch it again tonight. With a box of tissues right by my bed of course.
