Five and a Half and Counting

Another 5 and a half hours to go, but I'm already thinking about f.o.o.d.

For those who knows me well, they would know that I have this thing for colored rice. Name it - nasi ayam, nasi tomato, nasi kahwin, nasi beringin, nasi beriyani.... I loike!



But my all time favorite would be nasi tomato. And I search high and low for the best nasi tomato during the fasting month (well, maybe I am exaggerating a bit here) And when Ramadhan came, I got an sms from a friend:-

"Its nasi tomato season again! Selamat Berpuasa!"

And I had a conversation with a friend at work:

Friend: So, how's puasa? Makan nasi tomato laa kan?
Me: Well, puasa's ok. Nasi tomato, not yet.
Friend: What? You haven't gone to the pasar ramadhan to cari your nasi tomato yet?
Me: Errrr.. not yet.

Guess I talk about nasi tomato too much :p

Work is Still Part of My Agenda

I am spending the first day of Ramadhan at home. The weather is cool and wet, just perfect to cool down the hot climate of ours. A perfect way of starting this holy month. Amin.

Last Saturday, the last weekend before the fasting month, I made a trip to the mall with the focus on just getting work clothes. I am still working and I need clothes, so I am not spending unecessary (I'm trying to make myself feel less guilty of shopping) :p

I managed to get myself a few items at G2000. In specific, 5 shirts and 2 pants. I'm happy with the amount I had to pay thanks to the sale. If they were not on sale, the total bill would have come up to RM1822. Money well spent! I haven't been doing any impusive buyings even though its the Mega Sale season (although it can be veryyy tempting), but so far, I'm doing just fine.
I only planned to get some shirts and pants, so that was done. After that, I got hungry and decided to treat my mom at Charms, and we got on the wrong floor, and I saw Cuffz, and you guessed right, I walked in. I've been to the store in BSC but that was my first time in One Utama. And the cufflinks were on SALE. All of them had a 30% discount from the normal price.
And I decided to grab these two.


For moi.


And one for Mr. H. Or should I just keep it for myself? hehe

J'aime Paris



I've heard quite a bit about Annick Goutal's fragrances; a top-end French perfume.

Price ranges from around RM350 (50ml EDT I think) to RM1000. A grand is how much you have to spend to own your very own beautiful butterfly bottle that is lacquered with natural pearls with a gold-painted butterfly on top. I heared that you can refill the bottle though. So that's a plus point.

But would I pay that much for a perfume? Definitely no. I don't know about you though :)

Anyway, I haven't really made it a point to pay their store a visit. They have quite a range of perfumes. 20 over if I'm not mistaken. As far as I know, the only one is in Le Meridien, KL, but this brand is also available in these anchor stores - Parkson, Pavillion and Isetan KLCC.

Tempted to try?

I do wonder how these expensive perfumes smell like.

Bulan Mulia Sudahpun Tiba



Saya ingin mengambil kesempatan ini untuk mengucapkan selamat menunaikan ibadat puasa kepada semua kaum muslimin and muslimat.

Semoga bulan Ramadhan tahun ini lebih baik daripada tahun sebelumnya, insyallah.

I Can Hear It Growl


I am fasting today.

I didn't have anything for sahur except some leftover chicken crackers from yesterday and a bottle of mineral water.

I am so hungryy! There was a farewell breakfast for a Senior VP that will be retiring the end of this month and a steamboat for lunch for the ones involved in the preparation of an assessment held last week (that includes me). Quite hard to resist the temptation, but proud to say, I am still holding on!

Now I'm thinking of what to have for buka, nasi with lauk or fast food. Burger King maybe? I'm a sucker for the Black Pepper burger and the Whopper. At this point of time, everything seems delicious.

Ok, ok enough about food. Let me get back to work. The best distraction over food!

Dinner East Coast Style


Last night my granduncle hosted a dinner party at his home in Damansara Heights to welcome some relatives of ours who came for a visit from South Africa. I know the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions South Africa are people with very dark colored skin, curly hair, basically you know what I mean.

But my relatives are Malays; known as Cape Malays and they have features similar to the Arabs. I didn't take any photos of them. The pics are in my cousin's camera. Sorry :)

Anyway, we had fun getting to know each other (there are my dad's second cousins) and of course, food was always part of the agenda. My grand aunty made her super-duperlicious nasi dagang Terengganu as the main course. I'm not a fan of nasi dagang at all, whether it's from Kelantan or Terengganu, but hers is excellent.

Nothing can go wrong with good food, don't you think? :)

Oh Why BB Why?



Something's wrong with my BB.

I noticed it last Sunday when a few calls that came in and the ones I made were interrupted by this annoying sound (the same sound you get when you're on the line and there's another phone nearby), but this time it is a constant sound with a 5 second pause in between. It went on for 5 minutes and the phone just went dead.

I thought it was my battery at first, but it happened again yesterday and today. All calls can't be more than 5 minutes, then my BB will just turn off. i tried reinserting my battery and SIM, but the same problem persist.

Since Sunday, I told Mr. H to call me on my fixed line at home and at the office, so I guess this 012-2010xxx I'm carrying can't be something I can rely on for now; until I figure out what's wrong with my BB. Good thing I have my 019 active - my good ol' office cellphone.

Up, up and Away

The movie I find really cute is 'Up' and it will finally reach our shores this weekend. Yeay!




Although I try to refrain myself from being in any enclosed area with alot of people as much as I can i.e clubs, cinemas, I'm still planning to catch this; wearing a mask of course. I'm a little paranoid with the swine flu pandemic. Every cough and sneeze gets my attention now (including my own).

I bought a bunch of masks from Guardian MV; I heard it's out of stock now last weekend. I'm not sure when they plan to get them restocked. Anyway, just a precaution and to be on the safe side. Better safe than sorry right?

I'm at the office now and I can't wait to leave work. 3/4 of the office are out for audits, courses and some are on leave.

Speed up oh dear time!

History has just been created! The first Asian born to win the PGA Tour!

I'm no fan of golf but I do understand the game. Nothing more than that. Mr. H loves golf, and so he called me this morning to inform me that Y.E Yang won! It was a big surprise as it was a 3 shot margin of victory over Tiger Woods.

What Can Go Wrong With More LVoe

I don't keep up with the trend when it comes to designer bags, but when I found out about this, I said to myself "God, this is so pretty!!"



The newest addition to the Damier family, I must say that this is definitely a good catch. Let's not talk about price here, since the Sistina GM is retailing at a hefty $2020 dollars!
I love its pleats, and the buckel gives it an elegant touch.

Beautiful bag, that's all I can say.

I'm not an LV collector, or any branded bag for that matter, but this little baby is making me think twice.

Sistina in my wishlist?

Maybe ;)

Christmas in July

This entry is long overdue. Anyway, my friends and I made a trip sometime last month to Kampung Kuantan, Kuala Selangor to watch fireflies!


And it was amazing! We couldn't catch them on camera though. We weren't allowed to take any flash photography and my Lumix digital compact camera didn't do any justice to the real thing.

I was in awe to be able to see these creatures light up to brighten the dark night. The most amazing thing for me was that the fireflies actually lit up at the same time. It was as though it was choreographed or something. And for those who have heard that they look like Christmas tree lights, I would definitely second that! Just beautiful!!

I've got photos of the pit stop we made before the 30 minute boat trip to watch the fireflies. We had a big, glorious meal at a nearby seafood restaurant to fill our hungry tummies, that is.


the sunset in Kuala Selangor


the dishes we picked...




It was a great trip and I had loads of fun!

Pissed with a capital P!

I am very pissed!!!

I hate it when people just point fingers at you without any basis what so everrr!!

Especially when it comes from a person who you regard as someone close to you!!

For whatever reasons you might have, I still think the approach could have been different.

There are better ways to get through to a person, and your way sure does piss me off!!

I'm not in a good mood now, and whatever I say might be out of anger.

Catch you guys later ~

Power Nap? Yes? No?

I was appointed to become an emcee of the launching of a new website for our division. I've prepared some key notes but now I'm sleepyyyy...

I'm thinking of taking a nap, but I'm afraid nanti muka sembap.

I'll take my chances.

I'm gonna take a 15 minutes nap.

Toodles!

It's Been A While

It's another Monday again, and official working hours are almost over.

The haze is pretty bad these days, I'm surrounded by friends with the cough & cold.. the thought of the swine flu does scare me sometimes! As a precaution I bought some head masks, just the cheap ones, I got 10 pcs for 11 bucks at Guardian Pharmacy. I haven't gotten the urge to wear it yet, but the fact that I have them handy somewhat makes me feel better :p

I went to watch the Tun Mamat theatre at Dewan DBKL. Yes, a bangsawan theatre. So unlike me, but I decided to join the clan since my grandma was given VIP seats that night :p

The main casts were:
Ashraf Muslim
Dato' Jalaluddin Hassan
Sabrina Ali


It was the first time I got to know about Ashraf (sorry, I'm not really into the local movie scene). He's cute, and friendly too. He sat with us over supper (we were served supper after the show).

Anyway, after that my cousin and I decided to hang out at Carlo's in Pavillion. The place is quite nice, but the crowd is not really to my liking. Perhaps because we encountered some weird people there. Other that that, I like the music! They played house!!

When a Box of Tissues Comes Handy

I watched two chick flicks these past 2 weeks..




One of the funniest movies this year! I likeeee! There were so many scenes that tickled my funny bone. Simply entertaining! I don't mind watching this movie again :) And Ryan Reynolds, you sure do have a hot bod! ~Drool~



And the other one I just watched last weekend was this.



It was rather dragging at first. But this movie had its moments. There were a few funny scenes as well. My favorite scenes were when Connor Mead talked Sandra into getting back with Paulie & Connor's toast on Paulie's big day. I couldn't help but shed a few tears. So sweetttttt...
Ok enough about the movie, I don't wanna spoil the fun, so go watch it!



So, when's the next chick flick? I'm game for one anytime.
