See you next year

Only at this time of the year when someone says 'see you next year', it sounds funny because next year is just... tomorrow.

Read a few blogs today - Missed out a lot due to the trip to Brunei and excessive reading of Twilight Saga. Discovered that the common topic is all about reminiscing, setting new year resolutions etc...

Should I also do the same?

Maybe not.

Feeling so empty at the moment. I immersed myself into the Twilight series. The third post about Twilight again. I have got to stop mentioning this. I dont have anything to continue the feel-good factor. Darn...

Please let the time move faster so that I can go away and shop till I drop

The Twlight Series Saga Journey

Ok, I finally finished the saga. 4 books. Done.

Book 1 - Approximately 6 hours. Very rough estimation because I stopped in between.
Book 2 - Took me about 5 hours - possibly less. I finished the book at 4.30am.

Book 3 - About 8 hours. I took a lot of breaks in between - was chatting online and watching tv at the same time.

Book 4 - Also about 7 hours. I started reading at about 11.30pm till 5.30am. Woke up at 7am to go to work. Yea, it is crazy. The book is a lot thicker - does this explains the longer hours?
Conclusion(s) from reading these books :-
1) I am way faster in reading if I dont have to keep stopping. Way faster.
2) I get really absorbed in reading.
3) Although I said that I will not spend a dime on these books, I changed my mind now. I might buy them if my budget actually allow me to. 'Cause I dont mind re-read the books. I can already imagine the wrinkly book cover and possibly a few dog-ears. The musty smell of the book.
4) My English is certainly much better after i read the books. Maintenance Work.
5) I just realised that I will have to tell the whole story to someone whom I have told the entire Book 1 story. Gee...

Back to Brunei again

25th December is a date of many meanings. Well... Actually I can only think of two annual events but this year, this date also holds another meaning - my dad's chinese birthday.

Mum and Yuanz want me to follow Dad to Brunei without telling Dad that we will be celebrating his birthday that night. Anyways... we had Excapade - seems that none of us can think of any where else we want to have dinner. Limited choice even though Dad and Yuanz are sick of this place. Haha...

Ok..another meaning of 25th December is the anniversary of my blog - the 4th Anniversary. That long. Gosh...

Then... of course, it is Christmas. Nothing special whatsoever. :p

Btw, my trip lasted me for 3 days 2 nights leaving me feeling totally out-dated - behind - slowed. Also, I have been reading the Twilight Saga and loving it. I just can't put down the book. In fact, I stayed up till 4.30am last night this morning to finish Book 2. Ah! The anguish and sadness that the heroine was feeling.

Another thing - I just watched Twilight the movie. I am just a bit disappointed because it is too condensed. It is a movie and you can't expect it to be exactly like in the book - otherwise, it will take way too long.

My extended holidays are almost over. Back to work again on Tuesday - a bit reluctant. I hope I can finish the saga before returning to work. Just so that I will not be too distracted. My English seems to be improving after reading two books. Haha...Seriously, I need to read more to improve my English or at least to do maintenance on my English.

I know this isnt much

Took this picture this morning. Used my handphone to capture it. I like the clouds forming around the beach... Fluffy clouds...

Winter Solstice

Went back to Brunei for Winter Solstice - which is last night. I thought that we will dine out but instead we dine in. Mum and Dad invited their friends to come have dinner with us. Ermm.. Mum's friend has two kids with her and I do believe that my parents is starting to have the "Grandparents Syndrome" - They love playing with the kids... oh no...

Anyways... the next day, Mum and I had brunch at Hua Hua Restaurant, a restaurant that we used to go to often in the past. We seldom go nowadays because of two main reasons - I am always not in Brunei and the location of the restaurant is too far from our current home. As soon as I entered the restaurant, I ordered Singapore Style Beehoon and Chee Cheong Fun - and ordered some more dimsum when the girl pushed the cart over.

Honestly, the dimsums are not really good. Cant say that it is not nice - just so normal. Definitely has dropped its quality. Then...the beehoon was horribly late (because they just happen to do gas refill at that time) and so we take-away the beehoon instead.

Ah! One fo the highlights of going back to Brunei is that once I arrived there, my Mum put me into this machine and I started to sweat.... well, not really. I didnt sweat much. Mum said that it is because my pores are all clogged and that I should be able to sweat more the second time I use it. Yes, people. My Mum bought this home sauna machine so that she can sweat at home. It is all for the health la....
And then... I also made a purchase while shopping in Hua Ho - Choco pie!! Haha... Damn happy to see this. Must buy!
Ok.. that's all... I just have to finish writing this so that I can publish it... Dont want to leave it too long in the draft.

Back pain

Suffering of back pain. I suspect it is the high-heels I am wearing... Hopefully after one week of not wearing high heels next week, I will feel better.

My Mum was back from KL last Sunday - She attended a 9-day meditation course with Burmese monks, gained mental peaceful-ness and lost 2.5 kg. Now she wants me to go to this meditation course too. Gasp!

Yesterday, during lunch hour, while walking in Bintang Plaza, I stopped and let out a fangirl scream. Joanna asked me what happened and then almost immediately her face told me that she knew why. Mirotic was playing loudly in the air. Aaaaaaa....! Sorry.

I officially start a 10-day off from work today - Combination of two weekends, two public holidays and four days of overtime leave. I will probably grow some cobwebs at home.

Internet connection has been super sucky for the past few days. I want to die...

I heart Neslo Shake

There is just something so therapeutic with eating crunchy peanut butter straight from the jar.

Bought two jars of peanut butter today :- Crunchy Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter with Chocolate. Expecting myself to get a loaf of bread tomorrow to make breakfast and lunch. why tomorrow? Because I thought my Dad will be in Miri today and so I will have free father and daughter breakfast tomorrow. But then, my Dad is not here so... I will have to have breakfast the usual way. The bread will probably be delayed if my Dad does arrive in Miri tomorrow. Sigh... I actually cant wait to have some peanut butter with bread...

Ah! Almost end of the year!!!

Early Christmas Present

Isnt the box a bit christmas-y?

Dad left me the money to buy the handphone on the dining table - expecting me to get the handphone myself. During my handphone history, I have never purchased a handphone at the shop. Dont get me wrong. The handphone I used is either a pass-me-down handphone or a lucky draw handphone with the exception of my Motorola V3i (which I traded to my dad for RM 300 and an agreement of instalment payments for the total cost of the V3i). You have no idea how nerve-wrecking it was for me. I was so worried of making a mistake of getting the wrong handphone because I will have no one to blame but myself if something is not right. I have to absolutely sure that this is the handphone that I want.

During the process of finally confirming that I will definitely get a phone, I almost strayed from C902 and nearly opted for LG Cookie.... which Yuanz strongly rejected due to its lack of 3G function. ah! LG Cookie...not only the name is cute but it is something like LG Viewty that I was drooling over a few months ago... then again, LG Cookie only has 3 megapixel camera... A downer but it has something like the Haptic feature... Gee.. I was so tempted...

Did I mention that I choose the red colour? As shown on the box. Red... Cassiopiea~ Cough... Cough...

Erm.... Still in the process of getting the hang of the phone. Erm... Should I give a small confession? Oh well... I shall miss taking stalker pictures... I can no longer take pictures of stuff as discreet as I can with my V3i. I shall have to openly take pictures. Sigh...

Anxious... anticipation

Yesterday, Dad promised said that he will buy me the handphone on Friday.

Today is Friday. It seems that other people are more anxious than me about getting the phone...

Hmmm... Just read the review on the handphone online. Ermm... Ok la... Somehow, I am worried. Worried of the change. Sigh...

I was a mummy

Errm.... Dont be paranoid la. I was almost-mummified just now.

I confessed that I bought a slimming starter package from Mayfair almost 6 months ago. It was an impulse purchase. I have plenty of such impulsive thing. :p

Anyways... I finally got to use it just now. The Mayfair people has been calling me to come and use my package and sign up for more.

Ah! A side-confession - I never intend to reveal this impulse purchase. Dont judge me. Dont!

So...I went there after work... Did the whole slimming package thing... Including getting all wrapped up with the wrapping film and then sweat in a heating blanket. Felt like I was mummified...

What can I say? Well, it was strange to let people look at my body and then keep encouraging me to lose weight and they seems so confident that I will definitely lose weight. Hmmm....

After the treatment process, comes the let-sign-up-for-more procedure. Well, I have made up my mind that...

I WILL DEFINITELY NOT SIGN UP FOR MORE BECAUSE IT IS SO DAMN EXPENSIVE LA! I think every slimming centres offer this kind of price...

Like I have mentioned, the slimming package I signed up for is something like a starter pack. Something to let you try and then get you started. So... not very expensive. :P

Darn... I still need to wait for another half an hour before I can go shower. Sob...

I feel lucky today

I am considering myself as lucky because I was wearing a reasonably ok to be seen t-shirt when I read Selene's blog post. If I am in my usual house clothing... it is not a pretty sight. Phew...

1. Take a recent picture of yourself or take a picture of yourself right now.
2. Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair... just take a picture.
3. Post that picture with NO editing.
4. Post these instruction with your picture.
5. Tag 5 people to do this

So..that is me in my 4 year old t-shirt. Still one of my favourite t-shirts.

Ermm... Saw this something at my office parking on Friday afternoon. Can you spot it?

I took a zoomed shot of the lizard... and went out of the car, wanting to take a clearer shot of the lizard but the poor little thing decided that the sunlight is too much and went into the hole...
It is a long weekend with Monday as public holiday. Not sure of what I will do tomorrow but today has been...blurry.

Errmmm... bah.

p/s: Not tagging anyone... Forgot that I am actually doing a tag.

Should I or Shouldnt I?

Out of the blue, I decided to check out Yesasia for the latest merchandises of Dong Bang Shin Ki aka Tohoshinki aka TVXQ. Well, I am pleased to see that they will have a Japanese single at the beginning of 2009. Then... I saw that there is discounts on K-Pop items. So, I browsed through and selected a few items. Within half an hour, my shopping cart is filled with the above-listed items.

Ah! Nanotay, do you notice the Big Bang album? Breathe! Stop screaming if you are. Remember to breathe!! Breathe in! Breathe out!

After staring at the shopping cart... After thinking of my Paypal balance... I tidak sanggup la. Really... I can't cut down any of the items because there is this minimum amount for free shipping. So... I shall stop here.

Just now... Had a drink and a bit of makan with Lynthia & Lynna. Errmm... yea. Not good for my waist...I am not getting any slimmer... instead getting fatter. Shit!

Hmmm... I should watch tv now. Hehe... I have not been watching tv recently.. Missed a number of episodes of drama series... Will have to catch up by watching online. Bah... I wonder if there is any Korean entertainment news tonight. :P
