D-Day is coming...nearer and nearer...

I am officially engaged as of yesterday. Am I supposed to act differently now?
I don't feel any different though. Prolly a bit scared. A lil bit excited.
I can still taste the sugar which thefiancee's mom had fed me. A teaspoon full of sugar. My grandma said it's "adat orang utara/Penang". It's to make the bride-to-be sweeter till the wedding day it seems. What? Am I not sweet enough? Muahahahaha....

Superdzu made the nice box which contained the nice-looking cuppacakes!

The gift from my side to his : cuppacakes & choc chip cookies, a fruit basket and a moist choc cake. Yummers!

Last but not least, the Ring...Me loikes the ring.

p/s : Happy Belated Birthday Alex! It was yesterday right? :-)

pp/s : Congrats on the arrival of your newborn baby Inconditus! :-)

"Sering kita terlalai
Mengejar apa yang
Belum pasti
Kita lupa meraikan
Satu-satunya perkara
Yang menjanjikan



I cried buckets watching scenes involving Rashidi, Rita Rudaini and their daughter like when Rashidi cried himself to sleep hugging the crumpled pieces of sketching he made for his wife…or when he sent his daughter back to the wife and she wanted to follow him back and be with him coz she said he no longer smiles like how he used to…or when he left a note for his wife telling her that he’s happy as long as she is happy and that is the most important thing for him, for her to be happy…

I cried buckets watching scenes between the brother and the sister…the fights they had…the promise she made to her brother to always support him, how frustrated she was being in a relationship with a married man, a relationship that is going nowhere…the sacrifice that she made for her brother in the end…

I cried buckets watching Rahim Razali act as a person with Alzheimer and Fatimah Abu Bakar, a total stranger who was willing to take care of a person she barely knew…how accommodating the whole town was (the barber, the guy who sells newspaper) towards a teacher who had contributed so much…

The soundtrack is excellent too! Everytime I listen to Anuar Zain’s “Perpisahan” I will shed a tear…Such a sad song…Thanks for lending me the soundtrack Zureen!
ku mengerti perpisahan ini
bukan kerana kau membenci
tapi kasih yang pernah ku beri
tiada lagi bersama
sering aku terlihatkan mu
impian nan indah julang bahagia
ku harungi hari demi hari
bersama wajah tak mungkin akan
tapi hati masih tak terima
ditinggalkan sengsara
keraguan ini bukanlah padamu
perasaan hati masih rindu
kekalutan ini hanyalah untukku
tercari-cari bayanganmu
tak sanggup aku kehilangan
oh... oh...yea... yea...
masih tercari-cari
keraguan ini bukanlah padamu
masih tercari-cari bayanganmu
tak sanggup aku kehilanganmu

P/s : Sapa tak tengok lagi, gi tengok cepat!!

Guessing Game Part One

This post is especially for the music lovers. The young and the ahem…not so young. It’s for those who listen to all genres. Try and guess the name of all the songs and the singers okay. They’re my all time favourites and I know they’re some of yours too. If you’re a music enthusiast then it’ll be a piece of cake! DON’T cheat by googling the lyrics okay. Sapa yang dapat semua correct (or most of it) dapat free dinner on the 4th February 2007. You can bring a partner too. Heheh…

1st song

“So your walking on the edge,
And you wait your turn to fall.
But you're so far gone,
That you don't see the hands upheld to catch you.
And you could find the fault,
In the heart that you've been handed!
For though you cannot fly,
You're not content to crawl!...”

2nd song

“Sometimes everything is wrong.
Now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
When you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on”

3rd song

“I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough”

4th song

“You see everything
you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here”

5th song

“Hey mister I really like your daughter
when I'm horny like thirsty she's a bottle of water
hey mister, how'd it get so bad
you raised her so well now she's calling me daddy
in the back seat naked of her new Volkswagen
the perfect little gift for high school graduation
Its not what you did, its not what you didn't
God gave her the perfect body now I'm all up in it”

6th song

“Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either.
Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.
Enjoy your body, use it every way you can.
Don’t be afraid of it,
or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own”

7th song

“When someone said count your blessings now
'fore they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever…”

8th song

“On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he knelt above me with a rock in his fist

On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
She lay on the bank, the wind lied as a thief
And I kissed her goodbye, said "All beauty must die"
And I lent down and planted a rose between her teeth…”

9th song

“He says when you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gonna CHANGE so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change my dear…”

10th song

“On an evening such as this
It's hard to tell if I exist
If I pack the car and leave this town
You'll notice that I'm not around
I could hide out under there
I just made you say "underwear"
I could leave but I'll just stay
All my stuff's here anyway”

After A While...

Dear Aliyah, time will heal all wounds. You'll get through this tough time..

After a while you learn
the subtle difference between
holding a hand and chaining a soul

and you learn
that love doesn't mean leaning
and company doesn't always mean security

And you begin to learn
that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises

and you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead
with the grace of woman, not the grief of a child

and you learn
to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
and futures have a way of falling down
in mid-flight.

After a while you learn
that even sunshine burns
if you get too much

so you plant your own garden
and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn
that you really can endure
you really are strong
you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn
with every goodbye,

you learn...

Sibuk bangat!

Gosh! Sorry for not updating the blog. I’ve been quite tied up with work, not to mention the preparation for my engagement and wedding.

We have finally fixed a date for my engagement. It’s on the 17th Dec 2006. Theboyfriend’s parents are flying in from Kuching on the 15th Dec. It will give them enough time to settle in and do some last minute preparation. I’ve already ordered cuppacakes from Superdzu. Will send u the “dulang” later kay, Dzu. It's going to be a very small affair. Only family members are invited. I have not invited any of my close friends. Hopefully they will understand and none of them will "merajuk" with me.

Just came back from Jakarta yesterday. Arrived in KL around 2 am! Stupid AirAsia, there was a delay for about 2 hours! Anyway, went to Jakarta with Mom and Aunt on Friday. We stayed at Ibis Mangga Dua Hotel. The hotel was not bad at all. Plus it was near to Pasar Mangga Dua. Went to sooooooo many places and saw sooooooooo many nice looking “kain”. They were very cheap too. I bought the kain for all 3 occasions i.e. nikah, kenduri on my side and kenduri on his side. Now I just have to find a good tailor to make the dresses.

Thank god we decided to come back on Sunday since President Bush was scheduled to arrive in Bogor on Monday. The security in the shopping complexes in Jakarta was very tight. There were policemen everywhere. Traffic jam was horrible. Was stuck in one for about an hour! And people drove like madmen in Jakarta. The drivers especially the taxi drivers honk all the time, people crossing the road like they’re invincible and I could not fathom anyone having the courage to ride on that 3 wheel car they called a “bajjai”. But shopping there is the best. Plus, we had avocado juice morning, noon and night. Simply delicious!

I’lll post pictures soon kay. I don’t feel so good today. My head is aching, I’m sniffling non-stop and coughing like mad. This is what you call “Shop Till You Drop”!

Later peeps! Eh Pijah, where have u moved your blog to? How come I can’t get access to it?

I think my friend had overdosed on these pills...

I've a friend who keeps whining about how sucky her life is. There is only so much I can take you know.

If you dont like your job, quit!

If you dont like your parents lecturing you on how late you come back every night, move out and get your own place!

If you think your bf is a lying sonofobitch, cut his balls off and feed it to the wolves or simply put an end to the relationship!

I'm not a bad friend. I'll lend my ears for anyone who needs someone to listen to. Ill gladly lend my shoulders for anyone to cry on but if you keep on whining and blaming everyting bad that has happened to you on EVERYONE else but yourself and dont even bother trying to change the situation to make it better then what's the point?

How do you tell someone i.e a friend to stop whining and do something? U can only listen for so long but if everything you say "masuk telinga kanan, keluar telinga kiri" then what else can you do?

Selamat Hari Raya Y'ALL!

I will be going for a long Raya break and will be too busy stuffing myself with food (my grandma makes the best rendang...i bet you EVERYONE will say the same thing...hehehe) and watching lotsa crappy e.g. Gerak Khas The Movie or Cinta Mesin Basuh or was it Cinta Fotostat (who cares) and not so crappy (ader ke yang not so crappy?) malay movies like... (oh crap cant think of any! oh wait! those Mamat Khalid's raya movies are not so bad)...Aaahhh Bliss! Makan and watch tv, then makan, then watch tv..Pure Bliss!

I look forward to hari raya every year. This is the time where all my aunts and uncles and not forgetting over 60 cousins (I kid you not! After raya I usually pokai giler) will get together under one roof and the happiest of course would be the kids because they will be getting duit raya. Usually my mom's side yang paling meriah coz my grandparents have 11 children so it's not surprising la that I have over 60 cousins. On the 2nd day of raya my uncle will buat open house and we'll have a "sports day" where there will be events like makan buah epal, tarik tali, tiup gula2 dalam tepung, bawak bola ping-pong etc. It's more for the kids actually. Sapa menang dapat hadiah hamper. As usual yang jadi event coordinator is none other than Yours truly la kan. I'll have to make sure all 60 kids took part in the event and all of them dapat hadiah. Each and every ONE dapat hadiah, mind you. It's a stressful job because u do not want to get in a middle of a fight on who got a bigger or better presents or answer questions like "apesal faiz dapat coklat cadbury tapi syamil dapat lolipop jer? Tak Aci la macam ni!!!" then wails for 30 mins non-stop.

After the game, the kids will usually take a nap (tu pun kena paksa) then at night they will perform some nasyid songs or songs from boyband/girlband (siap ada dance routine lagi kay! hahaha), lepas tu lawan sapa lagi terer. I tell you, masa I kecik2 mana ader semua ni.

Then on the 3rd day we'll go to Penang and visit all my granduncles/grandaunties and then at night pegi makan kat Padang Kota. Oooouuuhh! I have to get them cheap dvds this year at Feringhi. I already know what to buy. Full season of FRIENDS and Sex and The City!!
This year will be my last raya as a singleton. Come next raya it will be Mr. TheBoyfriend and Mrs. Cosmic raya together-gether. Somehow I feel sad coz I know I wont be able to celebrate Hari Raya with my family every year after that...sniff sniff...I always tell myself that i am going to cari anak yatim piatu as a husband coz then he has no kampung to go back to and every year I dont have to worry where we should beraya. Oh well, you dont choose who you fall in love with I suppose. Punyalah tak nak yang outside KL/PJ, sekali dapat East Msia terus. Amik ko!! Theboyfriend tells me that raya in Sarawak is very meriah. You can just go to a stranger's house and they will serve you food and drink, no question asked. Errmm..I dont think ill do that la i do look forward to experiencing Raya there but at the same time im scared that I would cry non-stop in my room coz i miss my family so much and i just hope my husband understands and not make fun of me.
So dear friends/bloggers, I wish you all Selamat Hari Raya and Maaf Zahir Batin, if my writing ader ter-offend anyone or lawak2 I mengguris hati insan-insan kerdil spt Superdzu (sbb I seronok kutuk minah ketot nih...muahahaha..ooppss, see there I go again. Sorry Dzu darling!).
Usually every year I buat open house but tengoklah budget ader ke tak this year, u know with the wedding and all...If I buat i'll invite you guys kay...

African Princess? Moi? I don't think so!

I have this thing with African men. No wait a minute, that doesn’t sound right. African men have a thing for me. That doesn’t sound right either. Let me start over.

I have been a member of Friendster since 2004. That’s where I met theboyfriend. Apart from that I have been receiving tons of messages from African men. Some were lewd, some were weird and some I don’t even understand what the person was trying to say. Whenever I get these messages I would forward them to my fellow colleagues and we would have a laugh and they would tease me mercilessly about how only African men are attracted to me. Like hello???!! I don’t send out vibes that shout, “Oh please marry me and take me into your tribe and let me give birth to 15 children!”

I posted my picture but dammit I don’t look like an African Princess so I don’t know what the attraction is! Below are some of the messages that I had received. It’s only Tuesday (time is craaaaaaaawling). I figure u folks could use a good laugh.

1st message

4th message

What a beautiful picture u have here, I believe that the life we all are living is so short that we need serious attentions from the opposite sex, That is to say, My life is full of love and i'm looking for someone to share it with. I hope you will also believe with me that AGE ia all about numbers and figures and it gat nothing to do with love and friendship. if you will agree with me, the strong fundation of any relationship is based on trust and mutual understanding between the two partiesinvolved. Let me enlighting you a little more about myself. my name is EBY, and i'm from Africa. i'm 6"3 tall with black hair and brown eyes. yeah least I forget i'm 28years old don't mind the age that is in my profile my friend put it there. i'm single, never marry before. i believe in living life to its fullness and by sharing my joy and pains with that queen that is lacking in my kingdom, who will understand me, whom i'll treat like a queen.

I'm intelligent, easy going,open minded and above all i have sense of humour. if all i have said about myself is what u are looking for, my dear don't fall to drop me a note,so that we will start from there. my e-mail contact is hoping to hear from u soon. i promise u, u'll not regret it. i'm in KL to and this is my number XXX-XXXXXXX


5th Message

These are only a handful of messages that I have received since 2005. There are funnier and weirder ones like this Namibian guy who told me he has a lot of money and when I didn’t reply his message he wrote, “I now know money is not everything and that you are not looking for men with money”. Like WHAT THE FUDGE??? LOL!

Holy Moly Guacamole!!!

y parents have finally fixed my wedding date and the venue!! Phew. That is one thing I can cross off my checklist.

I have got less than 3 months to do everything, not to mention loose a kabajillion kilos! Sigh…

Where can I get a good tailor that charges reasonably? Don’t say Radzwan Radziwill coz I cannot afford him. What about the colour and theme? Lilac? Pruple? Oy vey! I can’t decide.

Oh yeah, I wonder if u guys know why my blog address is and not I was in hurry to type “purple” properly and misspelt it. Gobs kan? So now I have to live with “pruplelillies” forever. Unless I move this blog to another address which I won’t even bother coz it’s too much hassle. Got more pressing things to worry about.

I’m digressing. Anyway, I am so lucky to have great friends (you know who you are) who gave me a little push (a lot actually) and made me do a wedding journal. Thanks for wrapping it Nooby! U’re the best!

I feel like this 2 girls right now…OH SHIT!!

The "Eeekkk" Song

The boyfriend sent me this song called “Selimut Hati” by Dewa 19 a while back. I didn’t really listen to it properly then because…well, it is not one of Dewa 19’s most popular song. So this morning he told me that he had e-mailed this song to me again and wanted me to listen to the lyrics. He said that he meant every single thing that was said in the lyrics and that he sometimes feel like it too.
I will produce the lyric for you guys here. I think the song has a very nice melody but at the same time, reading in between the lines of the lyrics I feel bad because I think the boyfriend thinks that I compare him to my last ex-bf, which I don’t! Honest!

Aku kan menjadi malam-malam mu..
Kan menjadi mimpi-mimpi mu..

Dan selimuti hatimu..yang beku..
Aku kan menjadi bintang-bintang mu..
Kan s’lalu menyinarimu..

Dan menghapus rasa rindumu..yang pilu

Aku kan menjadi embun pagi mu..
Yang menyejukkan jiwamu..

Dan ‘kan membasuh hatimu..yang layu

Tinggalkan sejenak lalumu..
Beri s’dikit waktu..
Kepadaku..tuk meyakinkan mu..
Aku kan menjadi malam-malam mu..
Kan menjadi mimpi-mimpi mu..

Dan selimuti hatimu..yang beku..
I want theboyfriend to know that I don’t want him to be someone he’s not. I don’t want to change him (although I did manage to change some of his annoying habits like singing out loud and waving his hands frantically in the air and moving his body in the car while driving. Malu orang tengok okay! But I let him get away with it sometimes, when he’s usually stressed about work).

I want him to know I love him the way he is. I mean that’s what made me fall in love with him in the first place right? I don’t want him to feel insecure about how I feel for him.
How can I assure him that he doesn't have anything to worry about?
My last break-up was not one of those bad break-ups where we can’t even talk or see each other’s face. He didn’t cheat on me and I didn’t cheat on him. We didn’t have a big fight. We broke up because he was of different religion and was not willing to convert. He had a lot of issues. I respected his decision. I don’t hate him. I don’t want to be with someone who is forced to convert just because he wants to marry me. I was angry at him but I don’t hate him. After the break-up, he went off to do his Masters degree in Australia for 2 years. He is now back in KL. He now has a girlfriend and I am happy for him. He calls me occasionally (like once a month) to say “Hello” and I appreciate that.
So you see, I think the fact that I didn’t have a bad break-up worries theboyfriend. I think he thinks it’s abnormal NOT to hate an ex-bf.
Is it normal NOT to hate an ex, isn’t it?

My Very First Birthday!!!

Can't believe it's been a year already since I started blogging. Time flies fast when you're having fun eh? I never thought I could last this long. Face it, I am not a good writer. I don't write as funny and interesting blog as Leen Ash Burn (whom by the way I have met and think she is the most lovable gurl who has a voice of an angel) or Pseudo (yeah, I am one of your reader who doesn't leave any comments).
I have met a lot of cool, crazy bunch of people from the blogland.
There's the cute CikPijah, adorable but crazy Superdzu, Miz Da Bomb PMS, Lil' Miz, Gorgeous AngelEyes, Miz. sweetiepie Suzequatro, Mr. Macho Desparil, Miz HighCheekbone Wegra, Mr. 2nd macho Ifzan (hahaha...sorry Ifzan, Desparil is No. 1 Machoguy), Mr. Kaisersoze (how come ure so quiet now?), Mr Alex the CookieMan, Mr. applepie Agus and of course our talented Mr. Photographer Zuhri (U still around boss?).
There are also those whom I haven't met yet but you guys are very special to me. I know people say you write for yourself and who cares if no one comment on it but I have to admit I look forward to getting comments from Shopper Mom, Trueblue, Freak N Geek, Princess Waffzonkle, Gravtkills, Pugly, UglyButAdorable and 9. Maybe it's because we've been in each other's lives virtually and share so many stories with one another. I bet you that if we ever meet each other in person there won't be any awkward moments...I hope...
So Happy 1st Birthday Cosmic_GurL...I hope there will be many more birthdays to come...You guys inspire me to write and for that I thank you.
p/s : Thanks to my silent readers as well. You know who you are :-)

Penang Oh Penang!

You wouldn’t believe what happened to me these past 2 weeks. Drama betul. So anyway, 2 weeks ago I went to Penang for a holiday with my parents and my darling but oh so notty nephew. One fine afternoon, mommy dearest decided to go on the jetski with my cousin. My dad had his doubts and decided not to go on it but of course he didn’t wanna stop my mom coz he said my mom looked excited about it. So my cousin drove the jetski with my mom clutching her from behind. They were on it less than 5 mins when this stupid arab girl (we later found out she was 15 years old) purposely tried to hit my mom’s jetski. My cousin managed to swerve but this stupid bitch came at them again and this time she hit my mom’s jetski. Both my mom and cousin fell off into the water. Luckily they had their life-jackets on. The stupid girl also fell in the water. Then this stupid girl’s brother came on another jetski and saved her. My cousin who was 17 years old and couldn’t swim shouted for help but this stupid girl just laughed and happily left my mom and cousin in the middle of the sea and went off on her jetski. OMG! When I heard my cousin telling me the story after they were saved by a fisherman’s boat, I was trembling with anger. My mom had to be carried on a stretcher by the hotel’s personnel and her left leg was all bruised. My mom had polio when she was small so one of her leg is smaller than the other and she limps when she walks. So that leg was bruised. We put some ice on it to prevent it from swelling while the hotel personnel took down the information from my cousin. Think they went looking for the jetski and half an hour later, the sister and father of that stupid, inconsiderate, “otak-letak-kat-lutut” girl came and apologise to my mom. They said they would pay for the hospital bills. Like that would make everything alright lah. The fact that that stupid girl purposely hit my mom’s jetski and then laughed and left my mom and cousin in the middle of the ocean is just too much! She didn’t even come to apologise. When I told the stupid girl’s sister what had happened and how upset I was at her sister, she just smiled and urut-urut my back and said sorry. Wei! Sorry naik lorry lah!
We brought my mom to the hospital and doctor said there was a small fracture but she must not put any pressure on the leg and thus the doctor asked her to use crutches. So now my mom is on MC for a month and using crutches to walk around. So sad seeing her like that especially when she wants to go up the stairs. Thank god the other leg or “the good leg” as she calls it didn’t fracture. If it did then she wouldn’t be able to move at all. I tell you, I curse that stupid idiot arab girl. When I heard the story from my cousin, I was so mad sampai cakap to myself, “No wonder la people think you arabs are terrorists! U sure as hell act like one so maybe your country deserved to be bombed!”
I know, I know terrible of me to say things like that but I was sooooooooooo angry at that time! Im still angry and upset over what had happened but I am happy to report that my mom is doing well although she did swear never to get on a jetski ever again. See? Stupid arab girl!

So anyway, not only my mom had an accident. I too had a accident. I somehow twisted my right knee while I was coming out from the pool. I swear I could hear my knee “POPPED!" I couldn’t bend my leg. It was soo painful. My dad brought me to the clinic and the doctor had to give me a jab on my butt. Think he said it was pain killer, or was it muscle relaxant. It doesn’t matter. He gave a bunch of painkillers and after taking them life got so much better. So if someone were to ask me whether it was a good holiday then the answer would be “NOOOOOOOO!”
Last week I was in Penang again (tak serik2 budak ni kan?) but this time not on a holiday. Cik Pijah was. Hehehe…Borong banyak dvd Pijah?

I was in Penang for a very special project i.e. Project Tekad Penang which was held in USM. We had 13 schools if I am not mistaken all comprises of Form 4 students who participated in the programme. I love Tekad. I miss all the other coaches and my champions (that’s what the students are called). It was the last Tekad. I just hope we could continue the project in other states like Johore, Trengganu or Kedah. It’s such a good feeling to be an inspiration to the students and I too learned so much from them and from the other coaches. We took the photo below after the programme ended. Posing baaaaiikkkk punya! Hehehe...

You Get What You Give in Kalumpang??

I simply love the lyrics of this's called You Get What You Give by the New Radicals. It's an old song but it has got such powerful lyrics.
It's true you know. When you feel everything is just shitty somehow a cosmic force will pull you out of the rut you're in and you will be okay. If you're good to people then your good deeds will be rewarded. That's wht they meant by "You Get What You Give"...check out the lyrics kay...
Wake up kids
We've got the dreamers disease
Age 14 we got you down on your knees
So polite, you're busy still saying please
Fri-enemies, who when you're down ain't your friend
Every night we smash their Mercedes-Benz
First we run and then we laugh till we cry

But when the night is falling and you cannot find the light
If you feel your dream is dying
Hold tight
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget you only get what you give

Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile
were flat broke but hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God's flying in for your trial
This whole damn world can fall apart
You'll be ok follow your heart
You're in harms way
I'm right behind
Now say you're mine
Fly high
What's real can't die
You only get what you give
Just don't be afraid to leave

Health insurance rip off lying
FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion mag shoots
with the aid of 8 dust brothers Beck, Hanson
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in!
Don't let go
One dance left
Championed by a soulless media misleading
people unaware they're bleeding
No one with a brain is believing
It's so sad you lost the meaning
Never knew it anyway
Human natures so predictable
I'm a fool to do your dirty work whoa, whoa

Happy Birthday Nik & Nooby!

Last Friday we had a Bazaar at my office. I sold cakes and some of my colleagues sold jewelleries. I baked the dark moist chocolate cake friend baked the Blueberry Cheesecake and the Peanut Butter Royale cake. Don't they look gorgeous and to die for?! All the cakes were Sold out okay! Shared the booth with fellow colleagues, Nik (who baked the Carrot Cake--huge portion and it only cost RM3.50 per piece!) and Catlady (who baked Prune cakes and Victoria Sandwich - both are yummylicious!)

Free promotion for Noobs, Pinky & Athena aka the Batu Gurls Inc. (that's wht they call themselves). They make really good costume jewelleries and all of them are reasonably priced. Not that expensive. So if any of u guys are interested to look at or buy any one of these, please let me know okay...SuperDzu & Pijah, maybe we can have selamba party and I can show u these jewelleries..hehehe...

When You're Mad

U think this is cute?

Why is it men find it sooo amusing/funny when they make us angry/mad or upset us for no apparent reason?

This is what Barenaked Ladies said in their song "One Week"...
How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad
Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad
I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
Can't understand what I mean?Well, you soon will
I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve
I have a history of taking off my shirt
Then Ne-Yo wrote an entire song (When You're Mad) about how cute it was to see us cuss, throw things and yell! What woman would look sexy when she's mad? And you men want to have angry sex with us when we're mad? Sheesh!
It's just the cutest thing
When you get to fussing (cussing)
Yelling and throwing things
I just wanna eat you up
I don't mean no disrespect
When I start staring
Knowing that it makes you mad
I'm sorry that seeing you mad is so sexy
Could it be the little wrinkle over your nose
When you make your angry face
That makes me wanna just take off all your clothes
And sex you all over the place
Could it be the lil' way that you storm around
That makes me wanna tear you down
Baby, I ain't sure, but one thing that I do know is
Every time you scream at me
I wanna kiss you
When you put your hands on me
I wanna touch you
When we get to arguing
Just gotta kiss you
Baby, I don't know why it's like that
But you're so damn sexy
When you're mad
Baby, don't think I don't take you seriously
But I just can't help the fact that your attitude excites me (so exciting)
And you know ain't nothing better
Then when we get
Mad together and have angry sex (I'll blow you out)
Then we forget what we were mad about

The Break-Up

“It's not about doing the things you love, it's about doing things with the one you love!”

That’s what Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) said to Gary (Vince Vaughn) in the movie “The Break-Up”. We’ve all been there. Doing something we don’t really enjoy doing but we still did it anyway because it is something that our significant other loves.

Things like watching his favourite football team playing on the television together with him (even though you are not really crazy about watching 22 grown up men kicking and chasing after one ball or you don’t really fancy the team of his choice) or accompanying her to the hospital to visit her friend who had just given birth.

Why do we do it? The answer is simple. Because we want to be a supportive partner in the relationship. We want to do anything to make our partner happy. That’s what being in a relationship is all about. It’s about making a commitment and sticking to it. It’s about compromising, learning how to give and take and most importantly it’s about learning to live with each other’s idiosyncrasies. That is why you need to watch that game with him to see how he will react when his team looses the game i.e. whether he would sulk and refuse to talk to you the whole night or he would just shrug it off and say “oh well, it wasn’t their night. Life goes on. Let’s watch a midnight movie now”.

That is also why you men need to know when your gf/wife would be having her menses so that you can be more careful and sensitive to her feelings as that is the time when she is most sensitive and moody.

There was one part in the movie where after dinner, Brooke and Gary got into a fight about Gary’s desire or lack of it to do the dishes. Brooke got upset because Gary didn’t want to offer to do the dishes but instead only wanted to do it because Brooke had asked him to do it.

She said something like, “I want you to do the dishes because you want to do it, not because I had asked you to do it”.

Some may think it is a trivial matter but I bet you if you had asked some of the married women who had faced this kind of argument before then you would know it is not as trivial as it can escalate to something even more serious.

Women want to be romanced and appreciated when they do something special for their bf/husb. When she cooks your favourite dish after coming back from work, the least you could do was say “thank you”. You don’t need to buy her flowers everyday to show her your appreciation (once a year on her birthday will do just fine). We can’t be telling you all the time we want you to say “thank you” now, do we? I know we can’t expect you to read out minds but how hard is it to show your appreciation to someone you love for doing something nice for you. I know a friend of mine who sends flowers to his wife every month with a simple note that says, “Happy January”, “Happy February”, so on and so forth. She is of course envied by all the women at her office.

There is nothing spectacular about the movie “The Break-Up”. But as you are watching the movie, you will be reminded of every single fights you ever had with your partner, it is all so dejavu-ish and surreal. Exchange of words like,

“How come we always do what you wanna do and never do what I wanna do?” or

“Why can’t you just tell me this to my face instead of expecting me to read your mind?” or

“I am tired of being the only one who is trying to work things out in this relationship” or

“I just want you to say “thank you”. Is that too much to ask?”

I think every couple should watch the movie. Or rather anyone who has ever been in or out of love should watch this movie. At least you would have a general idea on how Aniston must have suffered when Brad Pitt left her for Jolie and broke her heart to pieces.

Tuesday, July 18, 2006 pussy, pussy, pussycat dolls!

I started going for concerts when I started working. You know the drill. Make your own money then you can spend on whatever you want sorta thing. My first concert was Bon Jovi’s (though I don’t think I paid for this. Think FAMA paid for my ticket. Hehehe). Aaahhh…those were the days. Back then, Bon Jovi was a kewl band! They had really great songs and I had a huge crush on Jon Bon Jovi.

So anyway, I was on lying on my bed last night, wide awake at 1.30 a.m., humming to the song “Fix You” by Coldplay when I decided to rummage through stuff I had kept over the years particularly concert ticket stubs. I think I have been to more than 10 concerts in my lifetime and the best one so far is of course Coldplay. Second on the list would be Sting. He’s such a hottie even though he’s ancient. LOL!

Think Alanis came to Malaysia in 1999. I thoroughtly enjoyed her concert. Whatever you may say about Alanis (she looked like a horse), I think she's a brilliant songwriter and a good singer. Plus she was engaged to Ryan Reynolds. Enuff said!! Her 1st album was so full of angst! If you ever break up with a guy and you wanna get your spirit up then you should listen to "You Oughta Know". And who could forget "Ironic"? That song defines how one look at life. The lyrics, "It's meeting the man of my dreams and then meeting his beautiful wife". Who hasn't been there?? And another favourite song of mine is "Hand Over Feet". From this song I learned what "Best Friend with Benefits" really means.

Aaahhh Jewel...sweet adorable angelic Jewel. She also came to Malaysia for a concert in 1999. She mesmerized us with songs like "You Were Meant For Me" and "Foolish Games". When she strummed her guitar while she singing "Pieces of You" which incidently contained some errmmm rather not so politically-correct words like "faggot", she actually apologised and said that she didnt mean to offend anyone by singing that song. The lady has got class.

Who can ever forget Hoobastank's hit song "The Reason"? Plus the lead vocallist Doug Rob is kinda cute too! Heheh...

Another great band. INCUBUS. Came to Malaysia in 2005. Brandon Boyd is hot without his shirt on. HOT I tell you! Love the "Morning View" album!

Another show which I enjoyed myself immensely. The Riverdance. They were here in 2005. Love the dances, the songs, the costumes! I love Celtic music.

Aaaaahhhh Sting...Mr. Gordon Sumner. Mr. "you-can-sting-me-anytime" Sumner. My favourite song is "Fields of Gold". Love the part when he sang, "I never made promises lightly...And there have been some that I've broken...But I swear in the days still left...We'll walk in the fields of gold". My friend, Mrs. Jacque has a huge crush on Sting and I dont blame her. He is in fact no. 2 (no. 1 was her husb...awww...) on the list of men she would die for.

Sebenarnyer, konsert ni best tengok if pegi ramai2 with friends. I mean no point shouting, "I LOVE YOU CHRIS MARTIN!" or "I LOVE YOU STING!" alone. Cam bodo jer jerit sorang2.

I am sooooooooo looking forward to see Pussycat Dolls in concert at Sunway Lagoon this 26th July and INXS (only because of JD Fortune) on 16th Aug.
Before I die (drama skit), I would like to see these ppl in concert :-
  • U2
  • Madonna
  • Boyz II Men (though I think it's highly unlikely)
  • Il Divo (for obvious reasons...hehehe)
  • Destiny's Child (Also highly unlikely since they've broken up)

    WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN CONCERT? Don't say William Hung!!!

Coldplay Rocked!!!

The bus trip to Singapore

I bought Aeroline tickets which costs me RM165 return. It was an okay looking double-decker bus, quite comfortable, well-maintained and thank god the seats are made of leather so there were no visible stains and no funny smell. I was so excited about the concert that I had printed out all of Coldplay’s lyrics and was singing in the bus. Hehehe…geek I know! I have to thank Princess Sparkle for “gently forcing” me to go, Athena for booking and paying for the tickets first and Mrs. Jacque for being my roomie (will not tell anyone I heard u pumping yr u-know-wht in the toilet kay...hehehe). It’s not that I don’t wanna go in the first place, it’s just that well, I have this habit of making up my mind at the very last minute. So there we were the 4 of us in the bus at 8am. I think the minute we got on the bus all of us went to sleep. Ni semua pasal World Cup lah. Errmm..not that I am complaining. All of us stayed up to watch the game and I have to say it was all worth it. *Grin*

We arrived in Spore around 2.30pm and checked into Elizabeth Hotel which is on top of the hill. It took us about 10 minutes to walk down to Paragorn. Not so bad going downhill but believe me carrying all that shopping bags up the hill was simply daunting. After we checked in, we decided to do a little bit of shopping before going to the concert. Went to Charles and Keith and I got myself a pair of sandal and a black handbag! Then I bought 2 pairs of earrings from Chomel (my goodness, the clothes there are really “comel” and could only fit “comel” people. Hahaha!)

Went back to the Hotel around 6.30pm. Got ready and went with Athena and her bf to the National Indoor Stadium to get the tickets. Then waited for Sparkle to get to the Stadium. Lama giler tunggu minah ni okay. Bersiap mengalahkan anak dara! Hehehe…While waiting for Sparkle to arrive the 3 of us queued up to go into the stadium. Then all of a sudden everyone who were in the queue dispersed and there were no more queues. Like whoa! Everyone just rushed in to get into the stadium. Bermulalah kejadian tolak-menolak and I am sure adalah yang kena raba tu.

The Mind Blowing Concert

We went into the stadium and I was amazed of how huge it was. The speakers were hanging from the roof and the lighting was excellent! The stadium was packed! Full house okay!

Around 8.45pm, the projection screen lit up with a countdown and Chris Martin came on stage. Oh My God! The man’s voice was superb! Don’t ask me what his first and second songs were coz I forgot. I was too mesmerized by his voice that I forgot the set list! He played his guitar while singing the songs and then he sang the third song which was “Yellow”. Oh yeah bebeh! I know this song by heart! He sang and jumped around and suddenly lotsa big yellow balls were flying around the stadium. He poked one with his guitar and it burst. There were golden glitters all over the stage and on him. It was mind blowing!

The man is really funny. And crazy. Think I now know why Gwyneth fell in love with him. He’s funny in a quirky kinda way. British humour. He just couldn’t stand still. He was dancing around, flailing his arms like a madman and this man’s body is so limber okay.

After “Yellow” I think he sang his hit songs like “Speed of Sound”. He even ad-libbed in "Got Put A Smile..." singing "...God let us tour the Far East..."

The he sang “What If”, “How You See the World”, “Ring of Fire”, “The Scientist”…

He also quipped that "Till Kingdom Come" was about waiting for your favourite band to return (making reference to their first joint-gig with Travis in Singapore). He slipped in a reference to The Backstreet Boys mid-song too. This man is seriously funny!

After he sang “Talk”, Chris said goodnite and left the stage with the band but of course we knew he would come back on coz he did not sing my song! I mean how could he not sing “Fix You”, right? That is a must song after all their concerts.

As predicted, after waiting for 10 minutes he came back on stage for the encore and sang “Swallowed in the Sea” followed by “In My Place” and “Fix You”.

That’s it!! I was deliriously happy after that. I was standing, shouting and screaming throughout the concert. It was all so worth it. “Talk”, “White Shadows” and “Clocks” created an incredible energy whereas “In My Place”, “Yellow”, “Trouble” and “Fix You” had the entire crowd singing along.

Absolutely mind blowing concert, the lights, the music and most of all, Chris Martin's voice. He sounds a hundred times better live and the kind of energy he has on stage and the way he gets the crowd going is incredible.

I leave you good folks with lyrics of his song called “warning Sign” from Coldplay's 2nd album “A Rush of Blood to the Head”…
A warning sign
I missed the good part then I realised
I started looking and the bubble burst
I started looking for excuses
Come on in
I've got to tell you what a state I'm in
I've got to tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign
When the truth is
I miss you
Yeah the truth is
That I miss you so
A warning sign
You came back to haunt me and I realised
That you were an island and I passed you by
You were an island to discover
Come on in
I've got to tell you what a state I'm in
I've got to tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign
And the truth is
I miss you
Yeah the truth is
I miss you so
And I'm tired
I should not have let you go
So I crawl back into your open arms
Yes I crawl back into your open arms
And I crawl back into your open arms
Yes I crawl back into your open arms
