I'm not sure how you feel when reading this but I definitely smells some discrimation here....

KOTA KINABALU: Some foreign women may be too pretty to work in a plantation at least that is what the Sabah Immigration Department thinks.
Its officers are taking a closer look at work pass applications from foreign women for jobs in the agricultural sector.
If the women are perceived to be too young or pretty to be working in plantations, their applications are given extra scrutiny and may even be turned down.
Department director Mohamed Mentek said the move was aimed at ensuring that foreign women allowed to work in plantations did not end up in any other job.
“We will request for a picture of the woman besides the photocopy of her passport. If this shows her to be too young or beautiful for menial work, then we will likely reject the application,” he said.
Mohamed said the department was keen to find out how some women who were allowed to work in the plantation sector ended up “doing something else in air-conditioned rooms instead”.
He said syndicates were likely to have been involved in arranging for foreign women to get work permits in the plantation sector, but end up at massage centres in towns.

Is this the government's way of resolving issues?

United Buddy Bears

Everytime we pass by Pavillion, I can't stop laughing. Dear would say they are 'tao hong' bears (aka "I'll put my hands up, don't shoot me, please!") because of their pose. Little did we know that they are the 143 life-sized United Buddy Bears, the first of its kind in South East Asia. They have a very important mission: "Promote living together in peace and harmony".

Drop by Pavillion and take a pose with your fave, they'll be here until 15th Feb only.

Food Review:Yuzu, Gardens (revisited)

I had the chance to organize a team outing recently. Was thinking of a place to eta in Gardens as dinner will be followed by bowling, thus it's more convenient to have eat in Gardens.
After much consideration, Yuzu was chosen again. I must say, their beef is still as good. Love the food there, but not the price. We got shocked when the bill came but it's paid by the boss, so it doesnt really matter.

Sunshine came for a while

Few days before New Year, our house has a visitor. This tame kitty just came from no where. He was very tame and likes to be cuddled. Everytime I open the back door, he will come running and leaped on my lap whenever I sit down. He was sunshine that brightens a gloomy day. Sadly, he's no more here. His owner came looking for him after a few days. The aunty said I am welcomed to visit her house to play with sunshine anytime.
I so wish that I can keep a pet again. A dog. A cat. But my parents and dear doesn't allow. I am too depressed if they pass away. I still remember vividly the time spent with Lucy. I miss her...:(

Give a little

It was my first time.
Donating blood that is....
I find it funny that they give you a cert after you donate. Why waste money printing it? Do you really need a cert to make you feel good in giving a little to the society?
I plan to do this every year. This is a way to give back.

I found some benefits of donating blood. Not sure how valid they are though:

1. No doubt the first and foremost advantage of donating blood is the exalted feeling of saving someone's life. If we donate the little excess blood in our body, it could save someone's life without creating any problem for us. Instead it would help to alleviate some major health problems like heart diseases

2. Blood donation is an excellent way to get rid of excess iron accumulated in our body due to its overconsumption. Excess iron in the body can stimulate the formation of free radicals, which are responsible for causing damage to body cells and tissues. Free radicals are also associated with many diseases like heart diseases and cancer

3. Iron overloading is also thought to increase the risk of heart diseases. Besides, iron oxidizes cholesterol, which is harmful for the arteries. Hemochromatosis is a genetic disease characterized by excess accumulation of iron in the tissues due to impropermetabolism. The disease can cause damage to many organs like pancreas, adrenal glands, etc. It may also cause diabetesliver diseases and heart diseases. So, donating blood on a regular basis would help you to regulate the level of iron in your body. Studies have shown that donating blood regularly can be beneficial for the heart and circulatory system and can reduce the risk of heart diseases, especially among young people.

4. Besides, blood donation also burns the extra calories and reduces your cholesterol level. After donating blood, the count of blood cells decreases in our body, which stimulates the bone marrow to produce new red blood cells in order to replenish the loss. So, it stimulates the production of new blood cells and refreshes the system.

Resolution failed!

One of my resolution is to post a blog entry daily but given the fact that I missed the last two days, so it's a failure! The hiatus is caused by the amount of work I am suppose to complete and also because I was down with flu the past two days. I'm almost 90% recovered and just went for a game of badminton. Feels nice to sweat it out. I wish I can say the same for my work. I hate doing reports!! Sigh, looks like I will have to work tonight to finish it off before I resume work next Thursday. :(

No more cutie

He's 3 and has gone to day care...
So no more cutie around the house. I used to rush back from work sometimes, just to play with him. :(
But honestly, if I am to look after him for a whole day, I think I will faint! :P Still not reach that stage of taking care a kid for a whole day. Play play a few hours can la...

Every year, my mum will make prawn crackers. This year is no exception. I didnt manage to help out as my mum made it on a weekday without waiting for me...-_-".
Anyway, my dad was helping to fill up the tins with fried prawn crackers. I am curious why all the tins have been labelled with an 'F'. There's no fish cracker this year, so it does not stand for 'fish'.
So I asked my dad, what is the 'F' for. He 'selamba-ly' replied 'F' for Fullhouse....-_-"". I find it so funny!!!! Every tin is full house ma...except one with half a tin of crackers as not enough to fill it up. Hahahahaha.....

Was running this morning when this song played in my MP3. Even with my limited knowledge of Chinese, I know I want to use this song as one of my wedding's theme song. Particularly love the chorus....

啊啊 我要和你一起走過一千個世紀
每次誕生 我都要與你相遇
每次輪迴 都為你

I have a dream~~(or rather a nightmare!)

It was a beautiful day. I was at my dear's house, and his family invited some of the relatives and friends over for lunch. All was going well until the guests start arriving. To my horror, one of the family's friend is one of my ex-BF's family!! It was such an awkward scene. I somehow feels guilty. They've treated me very well in the past and when the relationship didn't work out, it was not a very pretty situation. Needless to say, I woke up in sweat! What a nightmare~~ or is it telling me something?

Food review:Sweet Chatz

So, on days when I am lazy to write much, I will just post pictures of food! :P
Sweet Chatz is actually owned by TCRS Restaurants Sdn Bhd., the same company who owns The Chicken Rice shops chain. There are mixed reviews on Sweet Chatz but I personally thinks that their signature Durian Pancake is not bad at all. This time round, I ordered:
1. Chilled Pulut Hitam Paste with Durian
2. Nasi Kunyit with Curry Chicken
Love both dishes as they are flavourful and the portion is just nice for an afternoon snack!

Shop till I drop

Every girl loves shopping. I might be a little shallow to say that but I am very sure that most people will agree. Personally, I love to shop. I do so very often few years back. I will just take a day off and wander around shopping malls.
However, the past year or so, I managed to curb this interest of mine. Few reasons -
1) Save money - I don't know why my taste got more and more expensive nowadays...:(
2) I got more than I can wear in my closet - everytime I want to buy something, I will always think of the less fortunate who desperate need new clothes
3) I got lazy :P - couple of hours walking in the shopping mall is so TIRING.
And then there is this thing about online shopping. I totally agree with Su on her thoughts about online shopping. It's just so easy to click click click and buy. But being the size I am now, there is no guarantee that the items will fit me nicely. I've return a few pieces and the courier charges are not so cheap! Some quality are not up to expectations as well.
I'm refraining from buying online but the clothes/shoes/bags all look so pretty in the pictures!!
CY has this policy - only buy something to replace another which is spoilt. I like this theory and is trying to adopt it.
With CNY around the corner, we have this tradition of buying new clothes. But is it really necessary? Honestly, I do not mind not wearing new clothes. But sigh, contradicting that, I just bought few new clothes last weekend. But then, that's because I need to utilise some vouchers which are expiring soon. LoL!
I went through my mum's closet the other day and some of her clothes from her younger days, fits me well. And it's the trend now for vintage clothes. Hence, I got more 'new' clothes to wear. Yay!

Saturday, January 07, 2012

I am supposed to T.R.Y to blog daily but I think I am going to give weekends a rest. I am just too tired! How come weekends are more tiring than weekdays? Aren't I suppose to rest and get more sleep? -_-"

chik chak

I like taking photos but I can't get myself to learn all the camera jargons. Different types of lenses, setting apertures, ISO and all. I only know how to point and shoot.
A colleague once told me, photography is not all about talent. It' a number game. The more you practice, the more skilled you become. 
But still I would like to learn more!

I also realise that I like to take pictures of object more than of people. I find it hard to capture the moment that involves people. Does this mean that I am not a people person? :P

I know it's not auspicious to start the year with complaints but I can't help it! The condition in KL Sentral is getting worse and worse everyday! To add on to my disgruntles from last year:
1. It's blardy flooded when it rains! And because of all the contruction going on, the buses have to move very close to the pedestrian walkway, causing splashes of water on it.
2. The lights are turned off before 7 am. It's still dark at that time making it feels unsafe to walk.
3. Narrower walkway for two way traffic causing inconvenience especially for the blind. It's tough to navigate as when I am rushing, I need to dodge people from the other direction! Not good at all....
4. The elevator is still not working. Not to say that I would use it, but I really pity those who are carrying heavy luggages.
5. Poor air ventilation. I think I inhaled a lot of fumes from the buses and taxis for the past few months. :(
6. The pedestrian crossing light turns too fast. Imagine old people/the blind crossing the road.
7. Bus drivers shouting, trying to lure passengers. Come on la, if we want to take your bus to LCCT, we could have just ask or read the big sign on the bus. Worse is when they call me ah moi!

My dad sprained his ankle about a week ago. Being a stubborn person, he wants it to be treated the traditional way. I am nothing against the traditional 'urut' or massage but often wonder how effective is it. I accompanied him a few times to this shop in Pudu Pasar. The exterior of the shop is plainly decorated with a few wooden chairs for customers and a counter for payment. There are old wooden cabinets and on it are jars among jars of traditional medicine.
When it was my dad's turn, we were brought to a room. The 'doctor' rubs the chinese medicinal massage oil on my dad's ankle. I thought he is going to use a lot of pressure and strength but he said that is not the correct way. Instead he uses a big handheld spot light which emits heat and points it at the injured spot. I am still a bit skeptical but then my dad can walk again after two treatments.
Bottle of own made traditional massage medicine

Anyone who knows my dad, knows how he cannot be house-bounded. He must go to the market every morning and he must take his walks, either morning or evening. I can feel that it's a torture for him to sit all day at home. When I went to the market with my mum, many people asked about my dad because they missed his jokes and humour.
During this period also, I felt the pressure to really take good care of my parents. I admit that I took them for granted. Small details like knowing what pills they take daily, paying attention when they mentioned that they feel pain anywhere, and even my mum's cracked heel problem, are all very important. 
So, another resolution this year is to spend more time with my parents. I hope they'll stay healthy and happy always.

Happy New Year!!!

2012...the year that's suppose to be the end of the world, if you believed it anyway. For me, it's not the end until it really happens. It's just another prophecy.
Well, what I can foresee, 2012 will be another exciting year *wink*. So many plans and so many timelines to meet. But as the saying goes, we can only plan so much.
To kick start this new year, I am going to set another long list of resolutions. Long list of realistic and achievable resolutions. And this time (hmmm...same with many other times), I will T.R.Y to stick to it.
So, yesterday morning's 'char kuey teow' will be my last for many months to come as the first resolution on my list is to LOSE WEIGHT. You'll be surprise if I tell you that I have to lose 10kg to be in my ideal weight according to BMI *gasp*.

Enough talk, I better put on my jogging shoes and run all those 'char kuey teow' off.
Have a good year ahead everyone!!! And remember, if you feel like you'r e in shitty situation, there are many more people out there in deeper shitty situation. So, count your blessings!
