All the world's a stage....

Yes....and all the people are the actors and actresses. I hate those who lied. I hate those who are so fake.

*Give me the strength*

Damn...mail server hang so unable to do any work and what's worse is, have tonnes of work to do....*cry*cry*

Hmmm....many things on my mind lately. But when I am in front of the monitor now, cannot seem to put my thoughts into words.

Lately, my dad's health is not too good. Age catching up. He doesn't talk as much as last time and his hearing is not that good anymore. I remembered when I was young, dad used to give me piggy-back rides. My dad is quite thin and I was quite a chubby it must have been tough on him. I remembered dad used to bring me to fun fairs. And amusement parks. My dad is someone very loyal to one thing. And he is the MOST consistent person I have ever known. He goes to sleep at 9pm, wakes up at 5 am EVERY morning, takes a walk and then eats breakfast (white bread with jam) for as long as I can remember.

I am scared actually. I think I have taken my parents for granted. And I feel I do not know how to love them anymore. All along, I thought I am a good daughter but now I realised that I have not done anything much for them. And I am very disheartened. My dad used to always praise me in front of others but I have disappointed him and my mum. And the fact that I will lose them one day is haunting me now.

I might not know how to pray correctly but I pray to God to give me the strength to be a good daughter that both my parents put hope on.

Petronas ad this year

A colleague forwarded this Petronas ad for this CNY. It's meaningful but not as touching as some of the previous years advertisements. And I personally the song very very much....

Happy Chinese New Year !!!! should I start this entry?

What about asking everyone the meaning of CNY?

Do you still feel the spirit of CNY when you were a child?

Honestly, I have never liked CNY. One simple reason, I do not fit in among my relatives.
Ever since I can remember, the first day of CNY will be spent at my aunt's house the whole day where everyone will gather. It is boring. Every year will be the same. Same questions by distant relatives, same topics of this and this. Well, I guess it's more to a tradition for us.

What I like about CNY is the preparation, the time spent with my family during shopping and cleaning the house, and the reunion dinner. It's nothing grand, just a simple dinner where mum will make the best vege and chicken. CNY will not be CNY without my mum's prawn and fish cracker and famous acar....:)

So wish all a Happy Happy Chinese New Year....Oink oink.....

Black Pepper Corn Chicken - Where is the corn?

Time : 1150am
Venue : D'Arif Restaurant in Streetmall

Had lunch with Mai the other day. We were happily eating away our lunch although the food were not nice at all....Then, was rushing to pay the bill as my 1 hour lunch break is almost up when we realised something missing....She ordered Black Pepper Corn Chicken....But.....
where is the corn? Somehow, I found it funny as we did not realise it while we were eating.....Sigh, but not enough time to complain....So, maybe the corn is inside the gravy....Hahahah.

BTW, food there is not nice. Not sure about other dishes but please do not try their special D'Arif Breaded Chicken Chop.....

I am such a movie-freak these days. Especially for romantic movies. Just made me cried.
Movies I've watched recently:

Death Note 2- The Last Name

Attempts to watch the first one was never successful because both versions I have, the subtitles are in Mandarin and French. But I really like the second one. The story is very interesting and like Chai Yee, I like the way they twist the story. Character I like most? Ryuzaki or L....So full of characteristic and style. I like....

The Holiday
A heart- warming story of two women, one in UK, another in The States, attempting to run away from the bad relationships that just ended. They found themselves an oppurtunity when they agreed on a house exchange programme. What captures me most is the character of Iris....:P
Anyway, the story could have focused more on Iris-Miles than Amanda-Graham.
Jack Black rocks and Jude Law is still hot....:)

Happy Valentine's Day .....

Sometimes I wonder, what is the meaning of Valentine's day nowadays. Does anyone know the story behind this day? Is it about over-rated celebration with someone you love? Is it about an expensive candle-light dinner at a fancy restaurant or the cut-throat bouquet of flowers or gifts?

Anyhow also, wishing everyone a very Happy Valentine! Muaakkkkssss.....

Happy Birthday
Story of a love not meant to be. Well, actually it could have been a very happy relationship but because of the lack of confidence and trust, it turn out not so good and in the end, it's all too late. Sad sad story and it made me cry so many times. Rene Liu looks a tad too old for the role she is playing....

Wedding Date
Tagline: Love doesn't come cheap.
About an escort hired by a girl to pose as her boyfriend at her sister's wedding. He's everything a girl wants. As expected, everyone likes him and he fell for the girl and they live happily ever after. Dermot Mulroney is so perfect in this movie....Every girl's dream man....

Blood Diamond
Tagline: It Will Cost You Everything
Make sure the diamond you have now are conflict-free. This movie shows us how greed destroy humanity. Gruelsome truth that we never know till we watch it. Leonardo is a smuggler and brilliantly brings out the role he plays. Watch it if you have the heart for the truth.
Rating: 5 out of 5

The Last Kiss
Tagline: We all make choices. What's yours?
We all will face mid life crisis, won't we? Story about infidelity, loyalty, trust and responsibility. We never know what we really miss and love till we have lost it. There will be temptations all around us, and it takes self control and will to resist.
