I'm gonna get this in 10-15 days! Can't wait.. can't wait.

Thanks to Donna who gave me the link to the website! It is kind of pricey for a hair straightener but i heard so much good reviews about it. It cost me RM175 (including shipment) but i really want it so, i'll just make it as a present for myself this month hehe.

I'll show it off to you guys when it's finally in my possession!

Have a good day (or, good hair day) you all!!

Visited By A (Local) Celebrity.

Yesterday morning someone came to our office and it was a big surprise to us all. Who you ask? It was non other than Adam AF. At first all of us were like, "why is he here?" "what's his business doing here? he wants to enroll kah?" Well actually it turns out he happens to be the nephew of one of our work mate. That work mate of ours brought him to the college to meet his students. For what, i have no idea but everyone (students and staffs) took advantage of his presence there. Everyone wanted to take pictures with him. I am not a fan of him but he is a celebrity and it's not everyday a celebrity comes to the college.







Okay, my boobs look extraodinary bigger in this picture. It looks like a G cup LOL! Honestly it's not that big. Maybe it's because of the turtle neck blouse and the color: bright pink!

I've Never Felt This Way About Loving.

So i said in my previous entry that i will be making my own rendition of Brian McKnight's song. I did some recording last night and here it is! But it's a little bit short though because i used Alicia Key's version.



This is my first recording in months and i have just recovered from a really nasty flu that i had for almost a month.

Feel free to comment. I'd like to know what you all think of it.

Never Felt This Way.



I have always loved this song. I've even made my own version of this son but i used Alicia Key's track because it's shorter hehehe but i've deleted in in my youtube channel. I'm planning to do a new one.

Will post it when it's finally recorded.

Craving For Cakes






I have been exercising (everyday since monday night) and taken extra care of what i eat and now i am craving for these. Those who know me well know i have a soft spot for cakes. I know i can go out and buy a slice (or two) of devil's food but i'm restraining myself from doing so. My friends have even given me chocolates but i kept it away in my "chocolatebox" that i have on my table. I won't be looking at those stuff until i lose some weight!

Yes. That's how determined i am :)

1st Ever Bridal House Tour.

Selamat Hari Raya to everyone celebrating this joyous celebration!

I've had my 1st session of Beraya this year at my boss' house on the 1st day of Raya.
I have nothing to complain, the food was scrumptious, the company was great. Most of my colleagues were there.. I really enjoyed myself since this is the first time i went out Beraya with my colleagues.

Anyhoo, after the eating session me and a few colleagues decided that the day was too early to go home so we went to the beach at Tanjung Aru. We went to this place called, Tanjung Aru Bridal House. It was kind of unique. Unique in a sense where the building itself appear to be old fashioned, which i like. It is still old fashioned looking inside and i even told my friend that this is how i'm going to have my house built one day. I like things with an old fashioned touch to it. I guess i'm just one of those vintage people. I even own a few vintage dresses.

Ok, enough talk. Here are some pictures of that day. I didn't took any picture at my boss' place because i was busy stuffing food to my face hehe. I can still taste the oxtail soup. *droool*


Tanjung Aru Bridal House






The lady said no personal photography allowed inside the building ;-P


Me and my friends, who also happens to be my colleagues at the premise of the bridal house.


Us, again at the beach. The log of wood that we're on kind of looks like a dinosaur's skull.

Bad Hair Day

Me and my friends went to KK on wednesday for lunch and the jam was crazy! why do people do their last minute shopping every year? It's the same thing every year for every occasion: Hari Raya, Christmas, Chinese New Year.. I promise i won't be one of those people shopping at the very last minute this year!

Anyway, back to the story.. So we were at KK for lunch and since there were no parking available nearby the restaurant at Gaya Street, we ended up parking at KK Plaza and we walked ourselves to Gaya Street. We even had to park at the rooftop of KK Plaza! I wanted to take a decent picture of myself (camwhore style) but failed! the weather did not permit me to do so.

These rare photos of me sporting chinky chinky eyes!

Chinky.

That day, wasn't my best day in photographs.

Battles To Conquer

I just had a heated argument with my mom just now about exercising when you're menstruating. I told her it's perfectly okay but she went on and on and on about giving myself a break because i'm having my period and everything. I even lied to her saying my period is ending already but the truth is, it's still kind of heavy, the flow.

Ok, so why am i ranting about this? on a weekend? heck, i don't even blog that often on weekends!

Well, it all started when me and my family went to our relative's house for raya this afternoon and while i was eating lemangs with the sambal kacang, that jerk told me how much i gained. If anyone should know if i've gained or not it should be me. It's my body i know better. He kept going on and on and on about me and my weight infront of everyone. So imagine how embarrassed i was there with my plate full of lemangs and sambal kacang. Lastly i said "It's ok, as long as i'm happy" and walked away.

The truth is, I AM NOT HAPPY! not an inch! So that's why i felt the need to exercise tonight. I even canceled karaoke because i was feeling down about myself because of the weight gain. On the weighing scale, my weight have reached the number 6X. All my life, i have been in the 5X and even that time i felt overweight and now all i want is to be in there again. It's such a nightmare being in the 6X zone.

I should be losing weight easily to tell you the truth because i know this road. I have been here many times. All my life, the same struggle. I don't want to sound depressed in this blog, i know you don't want to read about it and i'll try not to be depressed. I'll take this as a challenge in improving myself.

I have been eating junk alot and that's the first thing to go. No more junk in my system. I even thought of drinking Herbalife again but i know it can't help me in the long run. Plus, it's expensive. It's now RM300++ a set? i remember it was only RM200++ a year ago. Of course it could make wonders to my body in a short time if i religiously drink it but do i really want that? i mean, i want to have a normal life not based on liquid every night and day. Remember, i was on Herbalife a year ago and it was a nice ride but it didn't last me that long because i was off it and maybe i didn't have much discipline back then that's why the weight gain happened. This time around, i think what i need is a permanent life change in my eating habit. I've been eating too much of oily stuff, biscuits, keropok.. you name it, i've gobbled them up. I believe that if you want to look good, you must first feel good about yourself and in my case, if i want to feel good about myself i need some lifestyle change. I need to alter my eating habits first. About exercising, that is no problem because i exercise 3-4 times a week sometimes 5 times if i'm really pumped up. So yeah, i guess that's the problem of why i can't seem to lose weight. The weighing machine keeps going up and up and up never down.

Let's see how this progress. I'm giving myself a month and this change of life style is starting effectively tomorrow, 12th October 2010. But don't expect me to lose 10kg because i'm taking it slowly i don't want to put my body to shock because like i said, it's going to be a permanent thing :)

Happy good feeling... here i come!

Scars.



Look at my leg, filled with scars. Most of the scars were from mosquitoes and from the grass. Yes, grass. They're like paper cuts but only it's from grass. It has been very itchy and i have been scratching until it bleeds. Some say, it's itchy because the skin is mending itself back together. It's a good thing it's itchy, right? the only thing is i can't hold myself from scratching it. I have put ointment on it (the cuts from grass) and Mopiko on the mosquito bites. There was a lot of mossies last month.. and i guess i'm their favourite victim :-/

It was horrible to wear skirts to work, i was so embarrassed because there were swelling red bite marks on my leg but since i don't have that much work pants, and baju kurungs.. i had to wear skirt to work. But Good news, it's healing.. the red, swelling marks are all gone but there's still marks of it. I haven't healed 100%.

Oh, by the way the picture was taken after a session of working out. I was sitting on an exercise ball, by the way :) The swelling and the redness have receded a bit so that's why there's no redness or swelling hehe. I don't think any of you would fancy looking at that, right?

We LOVE Sabah, No Matter What You Say.

I was going to make a post of the Biggest Loser challenge at the office but it all changed when i saw how big the topic of a guy with the name Luca Lucas condemning Sabah on Facebook. One click led to another, i reached a facebook page called 'KAMI BENCI LUCA LUCAS KERANA MENGUTUK NEGERI SABAH' (TRANSLATION: we hate Luca Lucas for condemning Sabah)

This is what i first saw last week but i didn't really gave much attention to it. I thought, ahh this guy just wants fame, this will go out in no time.



Today, i was sent a link again. This time to this one:



Is he an idiot or what? he dare say Sabahan doesn't use standard BM? Excuuuuuuuse me. We Sabahans say the most proper BM. Let's go back in time. Waaaaaaayyy back when we were in Standard 1. Did the teacher said S-A = SA, Y-A = YA.. SAYA or S-A = SA, Y-A = YE.. SAYE? Who is using the standard BM here? If SAYA is supposed to be pronounced as SAYE, im sure we all (Sabahans) would've known and be speaking Saye instead of Saya. I'm not saying the usage of BM in the East of Malaysia has no standard, no i am not saying that. I have no objections whatsoever to slangs. But that doesn't give the right to that idiot for saying our BM has no standard.

And about him saying Sabah has nothing except Mount Kinabalu, Sipadan Island, Mabul Island... hello? doesn't he know Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain in all Southeast Asia? Does Johor have a mountain? NO. Sipadan Island is also one of the top five best dive spot in the world (as voted by divers all around the world). IN THE WORLD! A world-renouned oceanographer, the late Jacques Costeau have also described Sipadan Island as 'untouched piece of art'. Does Johor have any of these? NO. Mabul Island also is reputed to be one of the best places for underwater macro-photography in the world. Again, IN THE WORLD!

You see? although Sabah has been said to be the 2nd pooorest state in Malaysia Sabah is still a world-class state. Tourist come here for the tropical islands, lush rain forests and her majesty, The Mount Kinabalu, something that can only be found in Borneo.

I also came upon one user of Facebook who claims to be as Sabahan but hates her own State. She even said it proudly. This what makes me embarrassed to be in the same country as these people. There are more of what have been said about not just Sabah but the people living here but i'm not going to mention because they are embarrassing and a waste of time to write it. They think they're better than us but anyone with a good mind knows that they're not.

They are SCUMBAGS.

Will You Love Him More?

I have been on MC for 2 days (thursday & today). I can't believe i'm saying this but i miss work! Anyway, the weekend's here so Happy weekend to everyone and a very blessed Sabbath to all Adventist worldwide!

I'd like to share with you this simple song by FaithFirst, a simple yet meaningful song. Just read through the lyrics you'll know what i mean.




I feel quite sure if I did my best
I could maybe impress you
With tender words and a harmony
A clever rhyme or two

But if all I've done in the time we've shared
Is turn your eyes on me
Then I've failed at what I've been called to do
There's someone else I want you to see

Will you love Jesus more
When we go our different ways
When this moment is a memory
Will you remember His face
Will you look back and realize
You sensed His love more than you did before
I'd pray for nothing less
Than for you to love Jesus more

I'd like to keep these memories
In frames of gold and silver
And reminisce a year from now
About the smiles we've shared
But above all else I hope you will come
To know the Father's love
When you see the Lord face to face

You'll hear Him say "well done"

I'd pray for nothing less
Than for you to love Jesus more

Come What May

This month, on the 19th my cousin will be getting married and i have singing duties. Not 1 song but 2 songs to sing on duet. One song will be "When God Made You" - i have always wanted to sing this song and now this is my chance! I will be singing it with my super extraordinary singer cousin, Bandy Pijolin, who won RTM's Suara Emas (golden voice) in um.. i forgot what year. Another song that i will be singing is "Come What May" - the moulin rouge song. To be honest i'm not really into the song. Heck, i didnt even watched Moulin Rouge! but a cousin of mine wanted to sing that song with me.

Hmmn.

I haven't even listened to the song :P but i think it'll be okay since there's still 18-19 days to get familiarize with the song and practice. My cousin, who is singing with me is in Thailand and will be in KK on the 15th. But he's well familiar with the song, so i think we'll be okay. I don't like the song, but we'll be okay. I can't practice right now because i'm still having sore throat. I hope i'll be 70-80% recovered by this weekend :) *fingerscrossed*

While making this post, i was browsing through youtube and i came across this:



Kailangan Kita by Regine Velasquez

I've heard many versions of this song, but this is my first time listening to Regine's Version. If i had a voice like hers, i would be singing all the time. And when i say all the time, i mean ALL the time!!
