It's time to share

It was indeed great to be able to contribute....Whether it's time, energy or money, it's a great opportunity to give something to the society. We visited an orphanage last Sunday and it was indeed a good ending to year 2006. Well said Andy....Visit http://wewewawa.blogdrive.com/ for more pictures.......

Mai's open house




Mai's open house

Of BKT and BR...

BKT= Bak Kut Teh.....

Yes, Klang is the place to go for some really good BKT. I never really loved BKT before as I have never tasted good ones but in Klang, I've tasted one of the best BKT. Thanks to that special friend who has introduced it to me. But up till now, I do not know the name of the shop. :P
Eaten with rice and fried onion and I personally love to dip 'yau char kuey', it's best eaten when it's steaming hot.....
Dengkil used to have one very good shop but it was a disapppointment the last two times I went there. The taste is not the same anymore. So, guys and gals....anymore good BKT shops to introduce?

BR= Baskin Robbins....

Do you know that BR has 31 flavours to choose from? I prefer BR than Haagen Daazs, maybe because BR has a lot more meaning to me....I want to try all the 31 flavours....:P...Anyone interested to go for BR every 31st of the month?

............................

When the feeling of being betrayed and being cheated is so so strong and the hurt and damage has been done, there is a point when your heart and feelings go numb and you do not feel anymore. Can't cry, can't scream, can't express it. Can't do anything anymore. It never fails to amaze me.....Nothing matters anymore. Nothing can matters anymore....End.....

TRUST NO ONE

I just ****ing hate people who turn against their word. Hate people who never keep their promise. Hate people who never meant whatt hey say and I hate people who never shuts their big mouth when they should have. Relationships are all about being loyal and what is the point when there ain't no trust left? I am so so ****ing pissed this moment. But having said that, I myself did not keep my mouth shut sometimes. Sigh....people are just so fragile....and not trustworthy...I will not let anyone see the weaker side of me anymore as it might be used against me one day. Stand by Mulder's rule...TRUST NO ONE...

Is it too early????

It's almost Christmas everyone....I have always loved Christmas....There's something in the air that makes this time of the year special...I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...Enjoy and have a blast..More importantly, do it with people you love and care about....For those who always have New Year's resolution (well, whether you achieve it or not, it's another story) it's time to get the thinking cap on....Like a friend said, review what has been this year and what we can achieve for next year. So....count your blessings and have a ........

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR...

I might have never said this before but I treasure the friendships we have.. Thank you to you all .....

More food....

Hmmmm....more food reviews...

1. Stesen Kopitiam @ Berjaya Timesquare
Situated near to the cinema and it's not a recommended place for food. It's like a clone from Oldtown Kopitiam and Uncle Lim's minus the standard of nice food.

2. Secret Recipe's Brownies and Toffee drink
Brownies has always been my favourite....With melted chocolate on top...perfect for teatime on a wet evening....Their toffe drink is rather disappointing. Rather spend Rm 2 extra for Starbucks anytime...

3. Sri Melaka (TTDI)
Errrrmmm....Had the Nyonya Fried Rice. Not as nice as expected...Maybe other dishes on the menu will be nicer...Nice environment and good service though...
4. Old Town KopitiamWorth trying are their specialty- Old Town White Coffee and their Xi Mut tea...Had curry toast and it was nice....Their Polo Bun also recommended but it's a bit too small....:P

5. Chendol and rojak (the best in town)
Yes, those who want to have some really nice Indian rojak chendol should head down to Pudu Pasar area. It's just behind the shop houses at one of the entrance to the market. Hard to find nice chendol and rojak nowadays...and it's considered the best in town....

Recently I have this craving for peanut butter and jam and I have been eating that a couple of times during this two weeks of night shift. Damn nice...Lots of peanut butter and jam...

Anyone wants to share their special places for nice food? Comment please.....:P

Porridge, anyone?

The best porridge I've ever tasted:-
Location: Cheras
Exact location is the row of houses apposite the building formerly known as FIT.
House number 66. Heheheh...yes, my house because the best porridge I've ever tasted is from my my mum. Two of my fave is the 'kacang' porrigde and the 'pei tan' porridge. Imagine steaming porridge with 'kacang' and 'hou si' and 'yau char kuey' and spring onion....I seriously recommend my mum to open a stall to sell porridge only and I bet it will be the best porridge in Cheras...Hehehe....

Random thoughts on a boring night of work.........

Someone commented that I should not post lyrics anymore. True enough it's lame to post lyrics but all those lyrics represent my feelings at some points of time. Really meaningful if you try to feel it.
Can someone tell me if I am a stubborn person? :) I used to think I am not but then why can't I listen to myself? Why does the heart does not follow what my mind says? Why am I so stubborn? Sigh.....
Many times I know it is not worth it but yet, why do I listen to my heart? Am I really trying to prove something to myself? So many questions I want answers. Can anyone provide me all I wanted to know? And why do I still want to know if I know the truth will hurt?
When I was jogging yesterday morning, I suddenly felt this feeling when I was in New Zealand. The weather- sunny but yet with cooling wind. Really wish I am there again.
Currently listening again and again to 2 songs:
1) Jay Chou's Shan Hu Hai (which means Coral Sea)
2) Shayne Ward's That's my Goal (brings a certain meaning but it is indeed a nice song)

Food blog....

Well......I've decided to blog about something more useful from now on. About something we need everyday. Yes, foodddd.......Heheheh......So, will be blogging about special food and reviews of restaurant now and then.

Let's start on.....

28th Nov 2006
Was on leave so had lunch and dinner at special places today.
Lunch: Went to Beef Noodle....the one we always had occasionally. Something in the soup makes us really addicted to it. To me, I will always recommend it when the weather is cold. Hot soup + nice tender beef = satisfaction. The shop is directly opposite Lai Fong restaurant near KotaRaya and at night it is open in the back street in Petaling Street near to Popular Bookstore. Still like the environment in Petaling Street because it's the feeling I get. It's nice to be eating at stalls like this at night with people around you. The aunty is nice and she recognizes us...RM 5 per bowl is worth it.
Dinner: Planet Hollywood....Environment is just so so but what I like most are their beverages. Interesting mixes and I had cranbery with coconut juice. Nice.....Food wise, they are famous for their burgers but it's not as nice as I had the last time. Their dishes are in very big portions though. We had Buffalo Wings which is very tasty....Recommended. Price range affordable but seriously I think The Coast in Alamanda serves nicer burgers.

1st Dec 2006
Wanted to eat beef noodle but it's not open....(*#&@(^$&$.
So had 'ikan bakar' and claypot chicken rice at the junction of Jalan Sultan and Petaling Street. Quite famous as a lot of customers but theit claypot is not nice...My mum make nicer rice than them...Hehehe....But their 'ikan bakar' is damn delicious. Recommended. Different type of fish to choose from, We took ikan pari and it costs RM 10.

2nd Dec 2006
Tried Coffee Bean's Peppermint Ice Blended. Comes in different flavours like vanilla, chocolate but with added peppermint. Too sweeetttttt....Definitely not for those who doesn't have sweet tooth. It's too sweet till I have to add some water but yet it's still too sweet. So no more a second try...

Soemone still owe me the black sesame ice cream ar.......I still remember.....Hehehe...In return I will get you mua chee if you get me the ice cream. :P

Keep a look out for more food blogs...Best things in life are shared.

It's a luxury

Beautiful Sunday morning. Went for a jog and felt so peaceful. Suddenly remember the time when I was in Penang, by Feringhi and Gurney, how it felt so calm and peaceful early in the morning by the sea. Taking a long stroll along the beach. Watching the morning sun rise up. Sitting by the beach and reading. The smell of the sea......It is indeed a luxury to live by the beach.

It has been a while....

Almost a month since my last entry....time flies past so damn fast....:P
I noticed I tend to blog by looking back at pictures taken during outings...well, since my last photos upload...there definitely has been quite a number of events....Let's see....actually lazy to blog of them....hahahha
Anyway,went to a few places since Aug....Went to Penang on a solo trip...Yeah, not anywhere too far but it was a great few days alone.Lazing at the beach and doing anything at your own pace.... It was great.Then, there was the the trip to Genting, to Singapore, to Cameron which we took a lot of craziiiieeeee pictures and had real fun, to Kuala Selangor for seafood which caused me one day MC the next day because I reached home about 2 am. And went to the 9 wong yeh temple in Ampang twice this year...It was so full of people....First time experience.
Went back to SMKBTR some time back and met up with of of the teacher. Really brings back a lot of memory. Those school days....I still remember way back in Form 1. Well, used to be quite wild but then starting Form 2, have to study hard because of peer pressure...heheheh. But I am really really glad and feel blessed to still keep in touch with most of you, yes, you know who you are...Friends forever k?
Well, I got 6 months free in California Fitness. Won it in the treasure hunt a few months back. But no time to go yet or rather, lazy me...Hehehe....But will make an effort to stay fit and healthy. And be slimmer? :P
We had our annual Raya gathering that day. Venue and time and participants is almost the same every year. Will next year be the same Mai? I hope it will, for the rest of the years to come....Hmmm....two of my dearest friend bought new cars. Myvi and an Evo. When want to take me for a ride? Hopefully up all the way to Genting? or little Genting also can la....Coming up trips? Langkawi and Penang? Looking forward to that. And Melaka maybe? I am craving for real Cendol with real gula Melaka......
Well, please refer to http://ncy.blogspot.com/ for the Cameron details....And all the best to you , Su and to the rest you, work smart k? People aways crave for something they see in others but bear in mind others will feel the same way. Be cool and do your best and you will see the rewards soon...

Illegal - Shakira

Who would have thought that you could hurt me
The way you've done it
So deliberate, so determined
And since you have been gone
I bite my nails for days and hours
And question my own questions on and on

So tell me now, tell me now
Why you're so far away
When I'm still so close
You don't even know the meaning of the words "I'm sorry"
You said you would love me until you die
And as far as I know you're still alive, baby
You don't even know the meaning of the words "I'm sorry"
I'm starting to believe it should be illegal to deceive
A woman's heart

I tried so hard to be attentive
To all you wanted
Always supportive, always patient
What did I do wrong
I'm wondering for days and hours
It's clear it isn't here where you belong

Anyhow, anyhow
I wish you both all the best
I hope you get along

You don't even know the meaning of the words "I'm sorry"
You said you would love me until you die
And as far as I know you're still alive, baby
You don't even know the meaning of the words "I'm sorry"
I'm starting to believe it should be illegal to deceive
A woman's heart

You don't even know the meaning of the words "I'm sorry"
You said you would love me until you die
And as far as I know you're still alive, baby
You don't even know the meaning of the words "I'm sorry"
I'm starting to believe it should be illegal to deceive
A woman's heart

Open heart
Open heart
It should be illegal to deceive a woman's heart

Open heart
Open heart
It should be illegal to deceive a woman's heart

The Rose - Westlife

Some say love it is a river
That drowns the tender reed.
Some say love it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed.

Some say love it is a hunger
An endless, aching need
I say love it is a flower,
And you it's only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance

It's the one who won't be taken,
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying
That never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long.
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong.

Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun's love,
In the spring, becomes the rose

Love....


“Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous, love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offense, and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end.”

Waiting in line to go up Twin Towers' bridge

These past few months......

It's been some time since I really put my thoughts here. I know it's a bit lame to put lyrics in a blog but those lyrics are representing my heart and emotions at times. A lot of drama has happened lately. Things that I would not imagine myself doing, happened. Things I regret doing and things I regret not doing.It has been a very turbulent ride and I nearly did not survive. A very sincere thank you from my heart for those who stood by me through thick and thin.

These past few monhs, I have learnt that I do not want anyone to cry for me now. But to cry for me when I am no longer here. When you watch people you love cry, you feel the pain and hurt they are feeling. I am sorry for making all that loves me cry.

Well, guess it's time to start anew. My heart is very very restless and wants to travel all the time but many things are pulling me down-expenses, job and companion. Since my last update, there has been quite a number of outings-Melaka makan trip, Bagan Lalang seafood trip, karaoke sessions (I am totally addicted), treasure hunting in Golden Triangle area....Will definitely post the pictures later.

Upcoming events? BBQ, more karaoke sessions, Cherating maybe? And I am planning a solo trip to somewhere...:P

And I won an IPOD Nano!!!Cannot believe my luck. Thanks to Foong Ling for everything. Owe you a meal.

Damn sleepy now.I am working shift now- 4pm to 1am. It's not as easy as I have expected. I cannot sleep past 830am everyday and it has taken a toll on me. One thing good is I manage to loose some weight doing this shift....And I want to loose more.Driving home late at night daily has become a norm. It's nice actually. To see the city so quiet. Going to miss all these soon. Well, time to concentrate on work though it's so so tough. Good night and sweet dreams.

A breath of new life

Lately, life is really a roller-coaster ride for me...Quit my job, got a new job that I realise I do not really like, lost someone I really love....Well, sometimes i feel that throughout my life, I have always made the wrong decisions. But no point regretting as it is the past. I should look towards the future. Learn from my mistakes. And I want to live life to the fullest. I told a friend that my ultimate dream and wish is to travel the world. So I will hold on to that to keep me going and hopefully I can realise my dream one day.

You'll think Of Me-Keith Urban

I woke up early this morning around 4 a.m.
With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate
I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep
But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake

And ever since you found yourself in someone else's arms
I've been tryin' my best to get along
But that's ok, there's nothing left to say, but

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need 'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me, you'll think of me

I went out driving trying to clear my head
I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left
I guess I'm feeling just a little tired of this
And all the baggage that seems to still exist
It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
Is not knowing what we could have been, or what we should have been, so...

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need 'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cap and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me

Someday I'm gonna run across your mind
But don't worry, I'll be fine
I'm gonna be alright
While you're sleeping with your pride
Wishing I could hold you tight
I'll be over you, and on with my life

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need 'em
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot betterbut you’ll think of me

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need 'em
Take your space and all your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we got nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me,

you'll think of me, yeah
And you're gonna think of me oh yeah
Ohh someday baby, someday
Ooohh…

Keep having faith....

sometimes at certain points in your life, you just have to go through a stage of frustations and disappointment to really grow up......a stage or well, stages that makes you realise that what you believe and what you fight for prior to that is all bullshit....people betrays on you, your most trustworthy pal turn against you.....but we all know that we can't give up on anything.....just to keep fighting and keep having faith....soon, something better will come up...each of us will go through all these moments and the outcome actually depends on how we face and deal with it....to all those special ones who has been there for me, remember that I will be there for you as well...keep having faith....

what lies behind us or what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us- ralph waldo emerson

What could have been....

What could have been
If you are still here
Could life be more wonderful
More beautiful
What could have been
If your love is still around
Guarding this fragile heart
And not letting it shatter
Like now
What could have been
If your arms is still around
Protecting this weak being
From loneliness
And not letting it suffer
Like now
What could have been
I wonder
Each and everyday
What could have been
If one day
I will not be here
Will you miss me
Exactly how I miss you
Like now
What could have been
If true and strong love
Is still around
Nothing to be done
Except to wonder
What great things
That could have been
But not happen
Anymore

Food and more food....

Yup....Humans live to eat while we eat to live......Familiar? The previous months has been more on food and more food.....

To be with you-Mr Big

This heart captures my heart today....

Hold on little girl
Show me what he's done to you
Stand up little girl
A broken heart can't be that bad
When it's through, it's through
Fate will twist the both of you
So come on baby come on over
Let me be the one to show you
I'm the one who wants to be with you
Deep inside I hope you feel it too
Waited on a line of greens and blues
Just to be the next to be with you
Build up your confidence
So you can be on top for once
wake up who cares about
Little boys that talk too much
I've seen it all go down
Your game of love was all rained out
So come on baby, come on over
Let me be the one to hold you

Chorus
Why be alone when we can be together baby
You can make my life worthwhile
And I can make you start to smile
When it's through, it's through
Fate will twist the both of you
Come on baby come on over
Let me be the one to show you

Love you both....

Have I been a good daugther? Have I hurt my parents? Have I disobeyed them? Sometimes I feel I have not given much to my parents. Not spending enough time especially for the past year. Not given much happiness to them. Sometimes, when I look at them, I will feel sad as I know they not be with me anymore one day. I am scared as all along, I have them by my side. My dad has gone through a lot since the war days. To hear him talk about those days, I feel we are so blessed. My dad is someone who is very loyal man. For as long as I have known him, his daily breakfast is bread. He has been working for the same profession and same company for the past 20 years. He never fails to go for his morning walk every morning unless it is raining. I wish I can learn to be like him. He doesn't really care what other people say, as long as he knows he is doing the right thing. And my dad is a wise money spender. Every cent counts....
My mum? I inherited her personality of being "over-worried". Tend to think of every detail before doing something and when something goes wrong, we both will start to panic...She nags but it's all for my own good. So many times I wanted to tell not to worry as I am old enough to take care of myself but she will always be worried....Which mother does not, right?
I am blessed to have such wonderful parents. Will try to make them happy and show them that they have successfully raised a independent girl. Mum, dad although I never say it much, but I love you both and always treasure both of you.

India....

India...What is the most common thing that comes to your mind when it comes to India? To me, it will be the people, lots and lots of people...It was an eye-opening trip to India a few weeks back. I was there for about 1 week for a workshop. It is not as bad as I had imagined but some things are just unexpected like the driving culture. Cars without side mirrors are a norm. Even those with side mirrors never bother to flip it open. Reason? Easier to "squeez" through the heavy, heavy traffic. It takes a lot of courage and aggresiveness to drive in India. No joke...
Tasted a lot of different India food, some are delicious but some are a bit weird. Thanks to one of my colleague there, we were able to have a few last hours of pure Indian culture on the day we left for KL. Imagine, riding a tiny trishaw with two adult guys. Yes, it was an experience but pity the guy who pulled the trishaw. Must have been hard for him...
Bargaining is a must if you are to shop here. Prices can be lowered up till 80% but no guarantee the product is genuine or not.It was quite a disappointment that I did not get any Punjabi suits.
It was really a great experience. We went to a few historical monuments around town, the parliament house, the India gate, Qutab Minar...So, if given a chance, i will go back there again and that time around I will not miss Taj Mahal, definitely...

Edison with India Gate...

Yes, this trishaw can fit me, my local colleague and Edison...

Was forced to pay RP 50 for taking this picture...

Me and Qutab Mina at the backdrop...

Morning view from my room...Quite dusty because of the constuctions all around the city...

Bus station? Nope this the airport...In Delhi

People....lots of people...

Life?

Sometimes in life, you feel you have lost everything. You gambled and you lost. At that point, everything is meaningless. But it's how you stand back up and have the courage to gamble again that makes life interesting. I am no fighter, just a normal girl with a normal life and always try to find something interesting to carry on. Always searching for that missing piece...
Sometimes in life, we only live for certain things. Life has become so routined...So so predictable, it as become boring...It is not suppose to be this way. What can we do but? Simple: change the way we think...It all depends on how you chose to look at life...
Live life to the fullest because it only happens once...

Walk the line

Just finished watching 'Walk the Line'. A very heart warming true story based on the life of Johnny Cash, a legendary musician in the 50-60's and his love June Carter. It's amazing how this story potrays the love of a man to a woman. Johnny and June had overcome so many difficulties along the way and finally they are together for a strong 30+ years. Both passed away in 2003. Johnny wrote in his biography:

"What June did for me was post signs along the way, lift me when I was weak, encourage me when I was discouraged, and love me when I was alone and felt unlovable. She is the greatest woman I have ever known. Nobody else, except my mother, comes close. "

And June wrote two beautiful poems to Johnny.

Ain't love such a beautiful feeling?
