What? Christmas is over ?

OMFG! Christmas is over! How did it happened?
I love Christmas especially the food. I am normally super prepared like buying gifts and at least organise dinner if there's none planned. This year though is a different story, I am caught off guard.

Once again, I shall not blame myself for being old and forgetful. I blame everything else. Haha I'm shitty like that, so what? I quit my job in August (burned out) and was jobless for 2 months (maximum enjoyment) and started work at a new place in November (love the office, hate the traffic!).

People remember to get me gifts and I did not return the favor, I feel shitty to say the least. Oh well, there's still next year I suppose. But dinner at Castell was wonderful, it was delish and among good friends. I was the only one working the next day, it was totally unfair!

Then on Christmas Eve, did not plan for anything and forgotten that all restaurant decided to have a Christmas set and are all fully booked. It was indeed not a good day for everyone except during the countdown to Christmas.

Christmas Night was the best of all. Delicious dinner at Aunt H & Uncle ML's place. A round of applause should be given to them for the wonderful dinner. Family members were there except a few did not turn up I wonder where there were. Anyways, most importantly I get to eat all the scrumptious food. And the kids (cousins) enjoyed themselves "murdering" the nice wrapping papers. Once they've started playing/reading their gifts, they don't have a care in the world. Sometimes I wonder whether they even care that we're actually there "aww-ing" and "ohh-ing" over the gifts they've got.

After that, we head off to BW's house for another round of Christmas dinner (konon-konon can still eat lar). By the time we got there, most of them are already drunk so scrap the plan of eating and started playing an "innocent" drinking game. It is always fun to see people get drunk.

I guess that wraps up what had happened the past few days. I need to put up some photos soon coz this blog is getting boring. I've got no time, big time career woman now (not!). Sleep is more important.

what happen next?

It has been a while since I've last blogged and a lot has happened. I've been so super busy that I abandoned my FB games. Yes, that is part of my life! my life dedicated to FB games...

Strict regime

Are 2 months worth of holiday enough for 5 years of strict regime at work ? I think not. At times, I do not know how to act & react. I've been adhering to strict operating procedures. The brain and body no longer know what to do.

The first thing that I did upon resignation was to dye my hair bright red. I can't help myself. I want to have control over something about myself before I turn insane.Followed by painting my nails dark purple, eventhough I look like I was poisoned but I don't care. I just want to feel alive.

People give me funny looks when I'm out coz knowing Malaysians kepoh-chi-ness, they tend to point and look unashamedly. I dare you to stand out and be yourself. Why bother about what others say about you?

5 years of being how to act, how to react, what to say and how to look is enough torture. We are no longer in school or a child. So why are we treated like a child? I'm not staying that there's not positive out of it. But sometimes, over politeness is way overrated. It turns out to look fake. 

I tend to shake people's hand when I see them. Some people look at the gesture weirdly. And I might have overdone it. Who knows what is the norm anymore?

The only good thing about the job is the uniform. I love uniform because I'm a lazy person. I do not need to think of what to wear to work. My clothes are all C-A-S-U-A-L because I'm tired from the layers on ICI slapped on my face.

Talking too much isn't a good thing either because you never know when you'll hurt someone's feelings. A lot of "child" still in the airline despite nearing to retirement age. Wherelse in normal society, it is okay to speak your mind. I am so lost!

It's time to re-learn how to be myself again~

Whatchamacallit

As I toss and turn in bed
The world is slowly waking up
That is when I realised
What an aimless life I have

Celebration in Progress

Last night (girls' night out) we had dinner, the 3 of us. Reason? Do we need one? I love to share stories coz of kepohness. But I won't go into details for P&C reason.

Ms CAV - successful trip and back. eventhough it was a trying time but she made it.
Ms JL or BBL - successfully found a new place and moving this weekend.
Me - found a job.

Ms JL or BBL came up with an idea to eat at a particular place in Subang which we were supposed to go on a previous occasion but we seemed to have lost track of what happened then. I was super excited because I've been craving for steamed fish for a while (no, i'm not preggers).

Name of the place Restaurant Brother Yat  Lot B1-765, Jln Subang 4, Tmn Industri Sungai Penaga, Ultramine Industrial Park. Contact number: 012-6846276



Eventhough the craving starts with the fish, this dish is super nice. I feel in love with the idea of it at a previous wedding dinner. And I've just realised that I ate the fish without snapping a photo of it first ...damn~

What they do is, the bottom of the pot is filled with hot stone of some sorts. Then they cover it with that thing you can see in the pic. Throw the raw prawns on it, pour in beer or some sorta liquor and cover the lid. Wait for a few minutes and your prawn dish is ready!

Mr BW thinks that it's cruel to eat it. My argument is that if we don't eat it, something else will eat it anyway. So why waste? hehe...Have an enjoyable dinner people~

Another wedding



I attended a wedding on Saturday night in Klang. It was my ex-colleague's wedding and I was excited because I know for a fact that the food at that particular restaurant is nice. I'm a sucker for good food but not a fan of wedding dinner. Reason ? Because it takes forever to start and end and normally there are a few "sohai" that got so drunk they tend to let everyone know that it's actually their wedding. They are such a disgrace to the society (sometimes all the time) and sometimes I need these people for entertainment.

Anyways, we arrived at the restaurant at an okay time. We were not the earliest "sohai" to arrive and not the latest. We, meaning me, Mr Husband and my friend LPS. We care about the environment therefore we car pooled.

The bride look fantastic and had 4 dress change throughout the night. I feel exhausted for her. There was 38 tables in total and everyone seem to enjoy themselves very much. It is the time for relatives to meet up and friends to rekindle their friendship.

What I like about this wedding though is the food (once again...) and I will share the photos as prove.

This is the first dish of the night 5 combo stuff. Generous portion too. Yum :) 


I think this is Buddha Jump Over the Wall kinda soup thingy. It was tasty. My favorite dish of the night. After drinking the soup, I felt full already.


Suckling Pig.. they are famous for it. It was not as good as I remembered maybe because there was too many tables to layan. But I still love it~

*Me with LPS shot with iPhone 4*

Me with Mr Husband. He show his usual "tu-lan" face but actually he's not feeling that at all.

And the finale, I saw some ex-colleague there which I was okay with when I was still with the airline. But Saturday night proved to me that they are bitches and I really don't want to see their face anymore. Therefore, you are no longer in my Facebook and I don't give a f&*^ if you know about this. Thank you.

Rancangan Tergendala

The title says it all. I've been on a hiatus due to "busi-ness" (OMG I've just realised that it meant very busy or business...pun intended). It's the effect of lack of sleep. My brain is overload with informations and ideas. WTH am I blogging about you ask? I'm trying to revive my online business because I am JOBLESS now. And at the same time, try to earn some pocket money.

For the last couple of weeks, I haven't slept well. And when I did manage to sleep, I won't be able to wake up before sunset. It is very unhealthy but what to do. I am on a different time zone. I no longer can use the jet lag excuse on Mr Husband. He thinks that I'm an alien with my weird sleeping pattern. I am special okay? There is no doubt about it so don't question me.

Recently, I saw a job advertisement online and the working hours are from 2:30pm until 9:30pm. My eyes went wide and my heart started thumping hard. OMFG! It's the perfect timing for me and it's near home but the job require the candidate to work during public holiday. Bah! Forget about it. One of the reason for me to quit the airline job was this reason. I'm not gonna put myself through that again. Nuh uh uh~

Goddess of Gambler

Few weeks ago, we made an impromptu trip to Genting Highlands. We, meaning me, my sister, my mom, my grandma and my aunt from JB. It was a cloudy Monday when we started the journey. As I didn't get much sleep the night before, I slept all the way there. Thank god for the 6GB worth of Podcasts on my phone.


The Goddess of Gambler went straight to the casino when we arrived Genting (duh!) wherelse my sis and I walked around The First World Hotel. We are not fans of the Theme Parks but since we had about 8 hours to kill we had no choice but to walk around. We had to line up for a "while" to get on the Motion Masters. It was a Monday (once again!) and it was packed with parents and their kids. I don't remember it as the school holidays season? Don't these people have to work ? The point of this was that when we got into the theatre, these people have no sense of manners whatsoever. They bumped into you if they have to and get the "best seats". No surprise here that my sis and I got on the first row. It was total shit!

Our expectations towards the "ride" was a tad too high. We came out feeling, WTF?! And vowed to ourselves that we will never get on it ever again. Coz it was RM8 per ride and there was less than 5 movements throughout the 10-15mins. And you call that Motion Master? OMFG!!

After loitering around for a good 2 hours and had an awful lunch at Mc D's we proceed to the casino. Why awful lunch at Mc D's? First off, the staff there looks like someone died in the family. Secondly, they look like zombies wearing the Mc D's uniform, dragging their feet and taking their own sweet time. And finally, I suspect that my Filet O' Fish is stale. (i was all drugged up on diarrhoea pills so i can't taste anything)

One thing we noticed is that time passes quickly while we were inside the casino. No wonder some of the people forgot to eat while gambling. Ahem ahem...you know who you are but I doubt she will read my blog.

We saw a lot of "interesting" things as we loiter around the casino.
  • a croupier that looks like Jay Chou
  • most of the good looking croupier's table have higher bets (min. RM50 or RM100)
  • a guy clad in gold jewelleries with helluva cash
  • old people with their best smiles as though they are still in their youth (their playground)

A successful dinner



Mr Husband went to Bangkok for work a couple of days ago and he got back on Friday. I missed him dearly and thought of cooking him dinner. It doesn't sound like a big deal but those who knows me will think so. Coz the thought of cooking makes me run the other way as quickly as I can. I am that lazy!
My thought of this is that if you manage to lower people's expectations on you irregardless of what and when you actually did something, people will go , WOW!" OMFG! You actually cook???!!! That's great!!!

I couldn't sleep the night before he got back (too excited) and was surfing through the web for the easiest cook Chicken dish. It is also important to check for recipes which requires ingredients that I have at home. Or else I'll have to buy some extra stuff which I might only use once.

However, I am surprised to find some really good easy to make dishes on the Net. Most of the recipes are shared by chinese ladies living overseas. And I'm surprised that they did not do to much damage to the original recipe or westernised it too much.



Nai Bak Veg (my fave)

Royal Chicken

Mr Husband was surprised with the home cooked dinner. He seemed happy and ate whole heartedly. I was beaming like a fool coz it was overall a successful dinner. Woohoo!

Another sleepless night....

I was out earlier tonight with some friends and I promised them that I'll sleep early and try to wake up at a reasonable time. Well, I did not keep my promise. I did not do it on purpose, it's just one of those nights when I had too much on my mind.

The time now reads 6:09am and guess who is in front of the laptop blogging.

**************************************************************

I really really need to jumpstart my blogshop again. I need to be able to finish what I've started. At this very moment, I am pretty much doing as much research as I can on the latest trend. I've noticed that some online blogshop reviewer are long gone. And a few new ones popped up.

I need to spend more quality time on this and hopefully things gets better.

There's something about weddings

Mr Husband and I attended a wedding this evening. Apparently today is one of those "hot" days where everyone decided  to get married. It was a lovely affair as I haven't seen the bride and groom for a good couple of years. They've moved to Singapore for work. God Bless the lovely couple.

It was a beautiful affair because of the mixed race marriage. The husband is Thai and his lovely wife is Chinese. They managed to have both types of ceremony which, to me is an eye opener. I haven't seen a Thai ceremony before.

The dinner was at a famous chain hotel from US. The food was great except the Glutinous Rice. The highlights of the night was a singing performance by the groom's niece. She has a songbird voice, it gaves me goosebump. I do experience that whenever I see something nice and hear something wonderful.

It was nice to see the joy and laughter of friend's wedding but we have yet to have ours. We are not inspired to have one "yet" because both of us are too comfortable with the way things are.

Facilities in the vicinity

Sometimes we take things for granted. No, let me rephrase that. We take things for granted every single day of our lives. Admit it ! We are all guilty. What happened was that I had a serious case of diarrhoea couple of nights ago and I didn't think that I need any medical attention.

And so I just left myself in a sick condition. Part of the reason was that I need to pay for it because I am now jobless. I also thought that I had some ORS (oral rehydration salts) left at home. In a way, trying to self medicate. (cheap skate mar!) Normally, I have some Lomotil at home because I am a diarrhoea queen. It has been a while I guess.

And so, by midnight my condition worsen. My ass felt like it's on fire due to the frequent trips to the loo. With no medication on hand, I felt faint. Mr Husband took a look at me and said, " Let's get to you to the clinic". I was like "OK" (if i had to choose between spending money and dying, i choose the latter)

We spent half and hour to andan hour around Puchong area to look  for a 24 hours clinic. We could not find any and decided to Google it. We found one (at last!) but it was closed. Can you believe it? A 24 hours clinic is closed on a Monday.

At that moment, I cursed out loud, "WTF?" People in Puchong cannot get sick in the middle of the night because there's no clinic open. The only options are the KPMC and Columbia Asia Hospital. No thanks! If you wish to be slaughtered, please go ahead. All I want to say is that I'm deeply dissapointed with the way things are in Puchong.

At last, we went to our neighbouring town Subang. We found one immediately. What a big difference the 2 places are. It is only divided by a village and a toll plaza. They have ample facilities and petrol stations there.


In Puchong, anywhere you want to go you have to make a big turn to get anywhere.

Contraceptions

Someone once asked me, "How do you prevent pregnancy?" This was a question posed to me by a married woman with 2 kids. She asked me this after she found out that I am married for 3 years and yet to have kids.

I was shocked to be asked this because I thought that it is universal knowledge that if you don't want to fall pregnant all you need to do is use a condom during sexual intercourse. We were taught that in school if I remember correctly. It is also widely advertised to be 99.9% safe. This sounding more like a condom advertisement by the minute.

This is what I think, if your man does not want to use a condom then don't do it at all? Why torture yourself by taking birth control pills? It does crazy things to your hormones. It causes water retention and in some cases pimple breakouts.

Safety comes first.

Turning 30

I turned 30 couple of weeks ago. It was a horrible feeling (to be honest). It was nothing like turning 21. I felt wonderful then. Everything is pretty much attached then, now everything's going south. There was really nothing to celebrate. Thank god for a wonderful husband, family members and friends. Or I wouldn't be able to pass through it.


Hanging out with my friends after dinner at Fatty Crab Restaurant. This is a new-ish place called "Upstairs" in ss2.

After turning 30, I dyed my hair red, paint my nails maroon (coz it's not allowed at work) and quit my job. So it was fantastic. I am free to blog whenever I want to now.

Sigh of relief

the whole of august was a bit fucked up. hence, no blog entry. finally made up my mind to leave the company. i think i've made a right decision. at the moment, i'm unemployed and loving it. except that cash is low and i have to think before i spend.

however, i met my goal post-company. dye my hair red and color my nails maroon. i know that it comes out sounded like a kiddy request but it is important to me. being able to achieve something so small yet means a lot to me. i'm rambling about nonsense now.

Decisions decisions

I haven't been blogging because I've been having a hard time with a lot of decisions. Been feeling emo for the past 2 weeks or so. But I'm glad that it is all over. The first turning point was turning 30 and feelings of insecurities. And after that it was more of a career move. Should I or shouldn't I?

A lot of tears had been shed and I feel much much better now.

Keeping my fingers crossed and annoucement will be made soon.

Verbal Diarrhea

When I was 18, I always had this dream that by 30 I'll be rich and fabulous. I will not need a man to support me financially but more of an accessory(eye candy). I'll have the most fabulous party ever at the hottest club in town with all my closest friends.

But alas.....

30 is coming in a couple of days and I am not rich but I am absolutely fabulous (in my own fantasy lar). I no longer have the urge to club or drink. I can't believe that I'm gonna say this but clubs give me headache and it's a waste of money. If I have to drink, I prefer to pay for duty free alcohol coz it's cheaper and there's plenty to drink without feeling the pinch in the wallet. (am i even using this correctly? but then again who cares?)

The important things in my life now :
  1. I have a place to live
  2. I still have a job. Gonna be jobless soon :)
  3. I have good & level headed friends to keep me sane
  4. I have a husband who sometimes loves me for who I am & hates me every other day :)
  5. My family members are mostly supportive of the things that I do
  6. Facebook is not banned in Malaysia
  7. Indy is old. If he has to go, I hope that he don't have to suffer and go peacefully. If given a choice, I want him to live forever.
  8. Contemplating whether to buy a dog as companion or not
  9. Wants something from Burberry, Gucci & Hermes badly
  10. World peace
I've been suffering from sleepless nights for the past couple of nights leading up to my big day. Is it pure anxiety or is age catching up with me? Old people needs less sleep. And I feel like an old cow.

Dreams do come true

It is not too old to realise our dreams. Why have regrets in life? You only live once, so why not live life to the max? Do things that makes you happy eventhough they whole world thinks that you're a dumb ass. Who are they to tell you what you should and shouldn't do? Why make yourself miserable all the time.

Someone once told me that anything can happen with positive thinking. The mind is a powerful tool if you dare to use it. Or remembers that you actually have one. She told me that her mom was battling brain tumour at the age of 70 plus. She had it remove and with a positive mindset, she is now a chirpy old bird. Happy with her life and her grandchildren.

If you keep telling yourself that you can't do this and that I betcha you will not be able to do anything with your life. It will be stagnant and you will forever be the loser that you are.

The epitome of positive thinking and realising your dreams comes in the form of a good friend of mine. Ms CAV believes in herself and do what she loves most. She told me once that she kept telling herself that she will see a rare sea creature ( i forgot the name of it coz i'm truly bad with it) on a diving trip and she did! No regrets and she went home happy. Apparently, it is one of the season diver's must-see sea creature and they've dived for many years and have never glimpse on one before. So I am truly happy for her.

Stay positive and good things will come your way.

Road runners

I'm proud to say that I am an ethical driver. I do not drive too slow or too fast. I always let people pass through if they want to. And when my mood says, "YES". Anyway, I've noticed a few times of drivers on the road in Malaysia and sometimes you just want to slap them.

Mother with children
They tend to drive big ass car and do not know how to manoeuvre the damn thing. They tend to cut in front of other vehicles just coz they are with child. They also like to double park and take their own sweet time to get into their car if someone honk them for attention to move their vehicle away.

Young man with spectacles
Their driving skills are as horrible as their looks. No offense to guys with spectacles but this is what I've noticed. They tend not to know how to drive. They either drive too slow or too fast and dangerously. Is it caused by their glasses? Is it in the way?

Modified local car drivers
Yes, I know you don't like the original general car specifications and you spent a lot of money modifying it. But have some manners when you're driving your lean mean machine. They go really close to other cars and just cut in front. WTF is wrong with you people? Not everyone in this world are car racer ok? Some are cautious drivers. You want to die, other people don't ok?

Overly cautious drivers
Some of them are so damn careful and drive so slowly they causes accidents to other vehicles. The road sign says 80km/hr not 30km/hr so drive as per the road sign. And there are a lot of cars behind you that are using the road too.


Bitches that don't let you pass
Some woman drivers are really shit heads. I really don't know what's going through their mind. When there is a traffic jam it's caused by them. You need to let other people pass through you coz if not, the jam will be worst. The thing is this let 1 car from each lane go once that way the traffic will be smoother and everyone can go home happily. By not letting other cars pass through doesn't mean that you will get home any earlier than them ok? Comprende?

Mind your manners

Most people who takes flight just want to get from destination A to B and don't really care about the things in between that or the people involved in the process. Have you ever wondered that if you were that great, why not fly the plane yourself? And land it wherever you want to be and be done with it? So if you don't happen to own a plane, can't fly the plane and need people to serve you food 35000 ft above the air, mind your manners and be a good citizen/flyer/human being. You catch my drift~

I'm going point form hereon for easy reading.

  • if you want to bring a bag that is not approved by the airline r&r and it weights like a tonnes of bricks, please put your own bag onto the overhead compartment. don't expect the crew to do it. fyi, not our job :)
  • if you can't eat certain food like you're allergic to all the food in the world, please pre-book your special meal. crew are not mind readers and we certainly am not a magician. crew cannot i repeat cannot conjure food outta thin air. and do not scream at us for leaving you with no choice. you do have a choice. either eat it or don't.
  • if you can't hold your drink. refrain from ordering alcohol from the crew. i know it's free. doesn't mean you have to take it. and if you need to vomit, please do aim your vomitus into the toilet bowl and not the sink. sink is for washing your hands. i'm sure you don't vomit into the sink at home unless it's a special made sink for vomiting then by all means go ahead. have a blast!



















Well, unless you have this sink at home, then by all means enjoy the vomit experience.

  • if you need to use the loo, please lock the door. i know that sharing is caring but too much sharing is not a good thing.
  • if you need to make a phone call, please don't have to shout until the whole cabin can hear you. i'm sure that you're a big time businessman. we simply dun give a F&*( and if the announcement have been made that all electronic devices to be switched off please comply. i'm sure you're not deaf.
  • if you demand for a newspaper and we don't have anymore left. it means that we really have none left. it is a complimentary reading material onboard. so if you happen to have a copy please don't bring it outta the aircraft with you coz it not yours. and don't get upset just coz you came in late and there's no newspaper left. if you're so desperate for it. here's RM2 take it and buy yourself a copy compliment from yours truly.
  • this is especially for cheapskate business class passenger. don't ask me for anymore teh tarik packets, the whole packet of peanuts and milo for you to bring down with the excuse your grandson, godmother, father, mother, neighbour, aunty and the whole village likes it. if you are cheapskate, just admit that you are one and i'll happily give it to you.
  • if you think that crew are cheap sluts, you are so wrong. just becoz we're in uniform and work up in the air, we're not airheads and easy. being sleazy doesn't pay. being nice and have good manners are added points.
  • don't tell the crew you're a doctor and expect and upgrade to business class and first class. if you have the money and need the comfort of the bigger seat PAY! we are not obligated to upgrade you and we can't so bye bye~
  • don't ask us to ask another passenger to shut up. we are not voice controller. if you have a problem with the loquacious passenger, just tell them off yourself. after all, you both paid for the flight tickets therefore you both have equal rights to tell each other off. however, if you make too much of a scene, the crew have no problem restraining you. so sit quietly and mind your own business.
  • if you have a baby travelling with you, and require a bassinet. make sure that your baby is placed inside the bassinet and properly strapped in as per the crew's instruction. i'm sure that you don't want your baby to be a "pan-baby" when turbulence hits the aircraft. a bloody mess is not a nice scene. if you cherish your child's life, you know what to do.
  • when a crew asks you what is your choice of meal, just answer what you want. nodding your head doesn't help. as i've said before, we are not mind readers.
  • when a meal is served, please have the decency to open up the table and don't fold your arms. i'm sure you are not a retard. even a retard will know what to do.
  • when the crew tells you what is served today please pay attention. don't look elsewhere and when the person next to you is served the meal only you turn around and ask again what is served. we are only human and at every sectors of flight we have to repeat & repeat the same god damn thing. we are also not your personal maid.
  • don't take your f&*(ing own sweet time to think of what you want to eat. the rest of the world are hungry too. they need food. unless you're in a hotel or restaurant you may take your time. and all aircraft food are the same. it's not healthy and it's not fresh. if you want fresh food, bring your own!
  • don't ask,"is this orange juice freshly squeezed?" coz i'll answer you this," yes, it is freshly squeezed from the box i got from the galley"
  • do not attempt conversation with crew while they are eating in the galley, coz you won't ever get a proper answer or attention. we need food. let us eat and we'll come and entertain until landing time.
  • do not make a mess of the toilet when you use it coz you were toilet trained as a child. i'm sure you don't mess up your toilet at home coz you have to clean it yourself.
  • do not keep pressing the call button if you don't really need anything. when someone else is really in an emergency situation, we might ignore it and that person might die and you are to be blamed for it. comprende?
  • do not ask stupid question like," is it free seating?" when you know that it's not and your seat number is clearly printed onto your boarding pass. i'm sure that you're not dumb. if you wish for free seating, please feel free to travel other airlines that have free seating. even the cinema have seat numbers, so don't try our patience.
  • do not compare us with other airlines. if you love the other airlines so much, please feel free to travel with them. if you choose to travel with XYZ airline, live with it!
That's all for now. When I can think of anymore nonsense I shall write about it.

The longest flight ever....

I recently went to New Delhi, India for work. It was an evening flight and most people will drag their ass to go for this flight coz it's a tiring flight. But not for me, coz I have a lot of things to buy. Mainly Himalaya products coz it's much cheaper there and the products are good.

When I got to the office, I signed in (reporting for work) my name in the system. And saw that I flew with one of the gal before and was happy. And one of the team leader. It's hard to find people who I've worked with before. So I was thankful. Entering into the briefing room is another scary factor coz 10 pairs of eyes will be looking at you. Speculating what type of person you are and whether you're okay to work with or not. Some are extremely friendly wherelse some think of you as a "disease".

This is also the time for the supervisors to check on you. From head to toe to see whether you comply with the company's grooming regulations or not. The checklist :-

  • is her baby hair sticking outta everywhere? is her hair neat enough? is her hairstyle approved by the grooming department? is her hair too short?
  • eyeshadow next. are there 3 colors? is it warm or cold colors? is she mixing the colors up? is it properly blended?
  • did she trim her eyebrows? is it bushy like a squirrel's tail? is it too thin? i forgot the name of the makeup style made popular by arabs woman where the eyebrows are too thin and scary looking. did she color in her eyebrows?
  • did she line her eyes ? is it proper? did she apply mascara?
  • is her foundation too thick or non-existent?
  • is her blusher too light? or does she look like a chinese opera? oh wait..chinese opera makeup is always welcome...WTF?
  • is her lipsticks too light ? she looks like she's ill or is she?
  • is she wearing a company's approved watch? is there too much bling bling? dat's a big no-no!
  • is she wearing more than 2 rings on 1 hand? does she think that she's a rockstar or something?
  • is her uniform properly pressed? is the color too faded?
  • did she paint her nails or buff it to shine? hey! dat color is definitely not approved by the grooming department. what is she doing with dat color. another death sentence!
  • is her shoe polished? until i can use it as a mirror and apply lipstick on it.
after that, there's the safety questions thrown at us. which is another scary thing to happen during briefing. and the supervisor will inform us on the passenger load for that day/night. and then followed by our working position.

i was given a cabin position that day and hated it coz the passengers are too demanding. i just like to shop in their country not serve the people on the way there. i was right as usual. once they are in the aircraft, we are at their mercy not the other way round.

water water water! that is something that will never stop. do i look like a water tank to you? this is one question that i have no answer to. they must have water. and ear plugs pls~ hello..it makes no difference if you out it on or not. if ur having the flu, yours ears will be blocked. then don't travel when you're sick!

anyways, i have this one particular gentleman passenger that irritates the hell outta me. he said this to me, " i want scotch with coke and ice. and keep it coming every 15 mins"
if i could i would like to reply him this, " do i look like your personal maid? if you love the drink so much, why din you buy the whole f&*&ing bottle of scotch and bring your own coke and pour it for yourself"

the flight was full and I don't just serve him alone. and i'm very sure that this guy doesn't have a maid at home. and if he do, i pity whoever she is. so i told him off in a polite manner. "sir, i've given you 2 cups of the drink. after you've finished i'll bring more for you. and as you can see the flight is full and the rest of the passengers need their drink too. so be patient and i'll come back to you shortly"

when i was serving the meal, he asked me for more of the drinks again. and i said to him firmly this time, " i need to serve the meals now. unless you don't want to eat. i'll get you the drinks!"
he shut up for a while and ate his meals. i gave him a "I F&*(ing hate you face" coz i can't stand it anymore. he tried to make amends and said this stupidly," hmmm, your food is so nice"

since when is aircraft food ever nice? he wanted to get back on my good side so that i can't continue being his maid onboard. i just ignore him and throughout the flight he kept grinning at me like an idiot.

***

later on, i was cleaning the toilets. yes! i am also a toilet cleaner. coz these people dunno how to use the toilets onboard and i sometimes wonder whether they do the same at home? after cleaning all the toilets (we take turn) and walked back to the galley (kitchen), my supervisor started screaming at us!

"i'm sick of this! how can you guys to this? you're supposed to be vigilant! how can you allow economy passengers into the business class cabin and disturb one of my passenger?"

*the said passenger is a cricket player. i suppose he is well known or else these people would not have went through all the trouble!

and she screamed at us while a few of the passengers are standing there. i think that's very unprofessional. and she did not check with us what we were doing at the time when the "incident" happened.

i wanted to tell her off. but i can't or i'll have to suffer the consequences so i kept my mouth shut and didn't look her way. ignorance is bliss! at that time, my zone leader was counting stocks on his sales cart. and he have to concentrate (of coz!) coz he's answerable for shortage of stocks and money. my colleague was preparing drinks for the monsters in the cabin and i was cleaning the toilets!! and guess who is the one who has the most free time? yes, you got dat right! the one screaming at us~

***

another incident was that the call button come non stop for these type of routes. and an experienced will know that. normally, the supervisors are very understanding about not answering the call buttons as per company's standard. however, our "queen" was different. she asked me to answer it as soon as it comes on and this is no easy feat as it's like a song. it is continuous. if i was a robot, then i don't think i have a problem answering the call buttons immediately but since i'm only human i can only do it as fast as my legs can carry me.

once again, since you are so free why don't you help us out a little? after all, you are our leader~
there's nothing wrong with doing your part.

actually blogging about this flight pisses me off. so i'm gonna end it here. the rest of the story i'll tell you in person if i know you. goodnite~

Accident Prone

I've had an injury week this whole week. First, it was the left ankle. I was told that I've pulled my Achilles tendon. It happened in my sleep. Whoever would've thought that this is possible to happen? I am puzzled!

And then yesterday I started experiencing pain on my right index finger. The veins below the cuticle is swollen and blueblack. There are a few suspects on the line; too much clicking while playing FB games, strained the finger while coloring my Hanjie puzzles or knocked on something without realising it.

After wrapping it with herbs and leaving it on for more than half a day the pain is still there. Is there no end to my injury? I need a break here. Thank you very much

Crossroads

I met up with my high school friend Ms JL the other day and we started talking about life and its turning points. She said that when a person comes to a certain age, things start to change for better or worse. It depends on your luck and stuff. Hers started 2 years earlier than expected. And it was a good lesson to be learnt. I think that she's a really strong person.

For me, my turning point will be this year, aged 30. Why do I say this? I might be unemployed by December this year as my 5 years contract with the company is coming to an end. Even with positive thinking, I don't think my contract will be renewed. It is due to many factors namely my age and my medical records. I do not blame them, it's part and parcel of life. And who I am. I am sick all the time. Money can't buy health.

Besides that, I am still clueless as to what I want to do with my life. Should I have my wedding ceremony? Should I change job? Should I get pregnant? Should I apply for another cabin crew job? I don't fucking know. I wish I do then it will make things clearer. I have always been someone who's clear on what I want to do or what I don't want to do. I don't like bullshit and wasting time.

And now I understand the meaning of crossroads. Indecisiveness and unsure of what the next step is. Too many pros and cons to be considered. Sooner rather than later, a choice have to be made. For now, I choose to relax and go with the flow. Too much stressing will only caused wrinkles. And wrinkles are something that are difficult to get rid of.

I choose to live in the moment and be happy. Who cares? Til I am truly desperate~

Yokoso Japan!

Eventhough I've been flying for almost 5 years, I've never been to Japan. However, when I was rostered for Osaka this month I was on top of the world. There are plenty of possibilities in Japan! I can shop for Rila! So far there are only 3 Rilakkuma Store in Japan (Osaka, Fukuoka & Tokyo) and none in Malaysia.

Anyway, the flight there was 6 and a half hours. I worked in the cabin and most of our passengers were students from Malaysia going there for a student exchange program. Each of them paid RM5k for the program (rich kids from private school). Thank god they behave themselves. But most of them carry a DSLR camera and IPhones.

While I was serving beer, one of the boys dare to ask me for a can. Obviously I din give it to him. I could lose my job (not really but just wanna be a bit dramatic!) I asked him, "How old are you?" (eventhough i know he's below 17). He did not answer me and just replied, "Nevermind lar it's okay." (what do ya mean by nevermind? slap ur head silly!)

Children nowadays really don't know how to appreciate what parents do for them. They work hard for the money to send them to good school. And this is what you do to repay them? Start drinking at 16? WTF?!?

We touchdown at Kansai International Airport at 7 plus morning (Malaysian time 6plus..1 hour behind). There was nothing special about the airport but it's clean and orderly. The airport was quite deserted as well.

I like the immigration department because they have finger print scan as well as checking of passport. They even supplied a bottle of disinfectant for hygience purposes. After that, we walked to the bus which will then take us to our hotel.

We stayed at Ana Gate Tower Hotel which is about 5-10 mins away from the airport. The hotel consists of 54 floors and attached to Rinku Station. (convenient) I was expecting the room to be small but it was quite okay for me. Coz I brought along a mother of all check-in bag solely for shopping. And it fit into the room quite okay. I dun have to close the bag to make space for walking.

The toilet seat intrigued me the most as it comes with a few buttons (bidet). They even warm the ass for enjoyment...haha...I love Japan!




















Enough of toilet talk.

I took a shower to freshen up myself and off I go to town. Cannot waste any time for shopping! I found a kaki to shop with me. And she's my supervisor.

The train to Osaka Umeda area come every 34 mins. And the journey takes about 62mins one way. It costs us JPY970 (approx. RM35.25). We slept all the way to town coz we worked the whole night.

Once we've arrived, we almost screamed but internally coz it's not proper. People might think that we're crazy or something. The shopping area is underground with a few shopping malls attached to it. Namely Hanshin Shopping Mall, Hankyu Shopping Mall, Dai Maru and etc.

First stop was makan. Coz we din eat much onboard. We got into a quaint little cafe. We sat our ass down and looked at the menu. It was all in Japanese. F&^*! The lady looked at us. She was like, "Oh!" And beckon us to the display window. We felt embarassed but were too hungry to care. We looked around and she came out to take our order.

I managed to order a Sukiyaki (thanks to Mr Husband's love for Jap food) and my supervisor (Ms J) ordered a ramen thingy with ebi tempura. One thing I noticed about the Japanese besides the loud slurping while eating noodles is that they eat fast. The patrons who came in later than us has already finished their meals and left. While we're still taking our own sweet time eating. There was also a sign that says "No Smoking" between 10:30 til 14:00. I wonder why? Is it because that is lunch time and it is not nice for the businessmen to smell of ciggy for the sake of their customers? I have no one to ask this question. It will forever be in my mind.

The main purpose of me going to town is to visit the Rilakkuma Store. Ms J & I walked to KiddyLand. (a big ass shop that sells all kinds of toys namely Hello Kitty, Mickey Mouse, Snoopy and etc) Rilakkuma Store is located 1 floor up.

The entrance















Me with Rila















Heaven!

I screamed in delight! Luckily no one was around. My supervisor thinks I'm crazy. But I spent almost an hour there. Bought a lot of stuff there. But I wished that the shop was bigger and stock more items that I saw online.

I was a bit upset as well coz I was a day early for the 7th Year anniversary. I saw the setup outside of the shop for the next day's event. The next one I want to visit will be in Tokyo. Start saving money!















The total damage in that hour (approx. JPY 18,000) I can't help myself coz I really really love Rilakkuma.

I will visit the store again once I've reloaded my bullet~

Rude awakening

My previous post was about loving thy neighbour. But I can't say the same for the people living above our unit. You see, I'm not racist. I love everyone for who they are except for some instances that they can't change and I can't take it. So I choose not to know that person or stop talking to them period!

I slept late last night or should I say most nights as I am a night person. And I enjoy sleeping in if I'm not working. Who doesn't right? And I expect to at least see Edward Cullen in one of my dreams but then again it's wishful thinking.

As I was still in dreamland, I was startled. There was screaming, shouting & banging of doors at the unit above. It was indeed a rude awakening!

The family lived above us are indians. What I don't understand is that why do they have to do that almost everyday? I'm sure it's not part of their culture. Normally when I have to work in the morning say 5am. They have already started shouting at the top of their lungs at each other.
The kids will be crying and I assume it's their parents shouting at each other.

I pity the kids! Why do they have to grow up in this kind of environment? I thought parents are supposed to show a good example to their kids? Or at least pretend to have a healthy and loving relationship in front of them.

Today's case is extra ordinary because the screaming match started around 11am. Til god knows what time. What I heard was the dad shouting, wife screaming, kids crying and a lot of doors banging. More doors banging than usual. So I assume that the case is more serious.

There was a lot of throwing things around and running around. I was afraid that the wife will jump down from the balcony and got stuck on ours. And there won't be any death coz they live on the 7th floor. The worst case would be broken bones and I suppose that would lead to more arguements.

I was tempted to call the police on them as they are creating too much noise pollution. I understand that it's normal to have heated arguments but do they have to share it with the rest of the world?

I believe that they can do anything they want if they lived in a bungalow with acres of land of their own where nobody have to hear what they are arguing about. They should be more understanding for the sake of other people's sanity.

What about those people who work at home? They need some peace and quiet too. So next time before you start shouting at whoever that you're mad at, think of your neighbours too. They don't need to hear that.

Love Thy Neighbour

It is so sad that people nowadays do not know their neighbours. One of those people is me. During my grandma and parent's days they know every single occupant living in their neighbourhood. I guess that in those days there were less baddies and people are more trusting. Wherelse people now are more selfish, workaholic and rather concentrate on whatever latest gadget they own rather than talk to people.

It doesn't help that most people now lives in apartments and condos. Once the grill gate is closed, so does all kinds of communications. In some cases, even housemates do not talk to each other. Why does this happen? What's the cause of it?

My reasons :-

  • they are always not around
  • communication problem coz they are foreigners
  • too lazy to talk coz i have to talk a lot at work
  • rather stare at the wall at home than loiter in the hallway and offer homemade muffins to my neighbours
  • prevent people from knowing too much about my personal life
The reasons for my parent's not knowing their neighbours so well now:

  • most of them went to heaven coz of old age
  • bought over by new owners that are not around only students who are renting
  • neighbours suffering from mid life crisis & hormonal imbalance therefore they bark more than talk
  • no longer fit to talk
Eventhough I tried to be nice and smile to my neighbours I guess they have the same idea as me. They rather stare at the wall than talk to other people. That sums up my thoughts on neighbours. Will you start to love thy neighbour or loathe them?

Eclipse of my heart

After a long hectic week at work, it is nice to wind down with a movie. I've been suffering a whole week long coz I'm not a morning person. But I have to wake up at the break of dawn. It is worst than any nightmare you would've imagined.

The movie choice was Eclipse. You don't need any introduction coz of the high profile actors and actresses. Despite a change of director, I am still pretty dissappointed with the movie. It do no justice to the book. But it is definitely better than the first 2 adaptations.

However, Robert Pattinson aka Edward Cullen (the swoon factor) do make up for the rest of the movie eventhough I can't say the same for his acting skill. He is just hot existing as a human being.

Kristen Stewart aka Bella Swan (the ABS - After Bong Syndrome) is pretty much the same with her expressionless acting. Thank God she did not repeat her screaming in pain for no reason nightmarish scene in New Moon.

And I think that Taylor Lautner aka Jacob Black (the Himbo) should be replaced by any other actor but him. Coz he's only in the movie for his 6 pack. His voice is squeaky and he can't act.

Besides, Mr Swoon Factor, my favorite actress is Dakota Fanning as the evil Jane. She is the only one who can act. And she don't even need to try. She is that good!

The director cut out a lot of scenes and the love scenes are unnecessarily long and there was too many close up scenes.

I hope to see more improvements in the next instalment "Breaking Dawn" coz it's meant to be more action packed. And I don't want to see screaming in pain again yet looks like a seizure when she's giving birth. Please go for more acting lessons ya?

We pay money for more quality movie and I'm a Twilight saga fan. Don't treat us like dumbass ok?

Nightmare holiday Day 2

We took the Causeway Link from JB to Singapore. It costs us only RM5 (1 way). The only setback is have to rush through the immigration department in Malaysia and Singapore. Once we get down from the bus, run marathon to clear immigration and board the bus again. I blame this to lack of stamina coz never exercise.














The interior of the Causeway Link bus from JB to Singapore.





















We missed the first bus and decided to wait for the second bus within 30 mins so pose for a while. Bro M was too shy to pole dance and capture it on film.

******

We arrived in Singapore at Jurong East station. Took MRT to Aljunied St (Geyland area) coz we're staying there. It's cheap, convenient and plenty of places to makan. The destination is Hotel 81 Lucky, I know it sounds cheesy but the place is quite nice.















Da bed




















Da Entertainment Box




















The doorway.

We shopped at Orchard area coz Singapore was having their annual sales. But alas, it was not a good day coz it rained the whole day. We had to buy umbrella and it just dampen our mood.




















Me and Cousin S dancing in the rain with our newly bought leopard print umbrella from CottonOn (priced SGD12.95 each)

The worst nightmare for a holidaymaker is rain, rain and more rain.
Sigh... all shopped out and I made this trip to buy Rilakkuma stuff but I did not managed to get the stuff I wanted.

Nightmare holiday

i've been looking forward to having a hols for sometime. the last one i took was during the chinese new year. to me dat's like centuries ago. i've been feeling shitty and tired the past 6 months. therefore the hols was set from 1st july til 4th july. destination : JB & Singapore.

a day before i was diligently cleaning the house, doing the laundry and clean mr indy's cage. coz i have to send him to dad's for caretaking while we're gone for the next few days. basically, prepare everything before a nice relaxing days ahead. alas! my joy started too early and i plunged to the deepest end of the abyss. (can anyone go deeper than dat? i guess the next step is death!)

Mr Indy was bleeding from his right ear. as he has snowy white fur, the color contrast was too much to bear. i panicked for a minute! who wouldn't ? maybe a vet won't. anyhow, i'm not a vet. then i sent Indy to the nearest vet. he was attended to immediately.

Dr Chan was the doctor that cleansed his wound and administer his meds. i had no choice but leave Indy there for the next few days. there's no one home to take care of him and apply his meds. i left with a heavy heart coz i was told dat indy has a few growth.. some big, some small but the biggest one is located around his chest area. Dr Chan told me that it's cancer. i wanted to cry out loud but public hysterical is frown upon.

so that pretty much sums up my preholiday. i din feel like going for the hols then. but i had no choice coz the hotel is already booked!

day 1
left the house around 7 plus and head towards parent's place but as usual it took us forever to reach coz of the jam. we forgot that the rest of the world needs to work. hehe...picked up the rest of the holiday gang and went for breakfast.

after breakfast, we went searching for a working atm to topup the touch n go card. after 3 attempts, we managed to reload. welcome to malaysia~ the journey finally starts at 10am...we reached JB at 1pm. thanks to my bro's fast & furious driving. mr husband was the navigator with the help of dad's instruction written on a piece of paper.

i slept 3 quarter of the way coz i din manage to get much sleep the night before. worrying about everything and especially bout indy. it has been a while since i visit my aunt's place in JB. to be exact, i think it was more than 10 years ago when they first moved in.

we had lunch at Cafe Tea Garden in Jusco nearby. the food's excellent & cheap. woohoo~












































A few pics of the food they serve. super yummy~

teatime at toast n toast. quaint place but the food is only so so. the most attractive part of the place is this piece of wall.















dinner was fantastic. seafood dinner. very fresh and yummy.








































after dinner, we went for a session of karaoke. it's cheap. only RM70 for 3 hours. there was 6 of us there. which we were singing, S got a call from her mom. she was told that one of our uncle just passed away. it was very sudden coz we've never heard of any illness from him. he was my mom's youngest sis's husband. he had a heart attack. din make it to the hospital. my aunt was devastated. we were stunned!

more to come...

Beautiful & Clean Miri, Sarawak

I went to Miri in Sarawak a couple of days ago for work. Arrived there around 3 plus in the afternoon. And proceed to the hotel which is located 10 mins away from the airport. Got into my room and saw this breathtaking view. I had to snap a pic. Normally the room I get is facing the main road which is Jalan Holiday (i just realised it) and this is like a chance of a lifetime.





















Believe or not I've been working with my company for almost 5 years and I have never step out to Miri town. This is because normally my colleagues are too tired to go out to town or I'm too lazy. Or it's too late in the night and the shuttle services are closed for the day.

Anyway, I'm thankful this time around coz most of them want to go out for dinner. And I was excited despite my tiredness. It was full flight all the way. Don't play play!

The specialty in Miri is Nasi Lalapan. And according to Mr Captain, it is actually like Ayam Penyet from Indonesia. But I've never tried any of those so it was a treat! I opt for the less spicy sambal coz I'm not so brave~ Or should I say my arse can't take the heat. Or it'll be on fire baybeh~





















After dinner, we chitchat for another hour while waiting for the shuttle service van to come pick us up. Sometimes it's a hassle not having a car to drive around. But beggars can't be choosers.

Mr Captain treat us this delicious dinner and we were soooo happy. I am happy whenever I don't have to pay. Who doesn't right? Free food is always nice and extra delicious.

Got back to the hotel around 8pm and I slept til the next morning. In fact, I slept like a baby. Didn't bother to turn on the TV eventhough it's World Cup fever now.





















I woke up to this beautiful view. Life is just so beautiful~

Would you go to the movies with me?

couple of weeks ago, mr husband and i went to a nearby cinema to watch 'the karate kid". eventhough we're married, we still go for dates occasionally. we're not the "stay at home & fester" type of couple.

back to the cinema issue. it was full house coz of jacky chan and it was the school holiday period. (it was packed like sardines everywhere). the crowd was pretty much a mixtured of any kind of human form.

the movie was so-so (expected) and it shouldn't be named "the karate kid". the more fitting title should be "the kungfu kid". anyway, the point of me blogging about the cinema is not a movie review but rather the weird cinema go-ers.

i would categorize them into 7 types of special individuals. let me see here...we shall start with :-

1. the unofficial commentator

i suspect that these people have no one to talk to at home therefore they grab whatever opportunity given to them and talk non stop. (preferbly during the movie). and they are not subtle about it either. they even put in their 2 cents about what's gonna happen later on in the movie and predict the ending. these are "sin kah lan" or SKL for short.

2. the loud muncher

must eat while watching the movie and make sure the world share it with them. somehow these people manage to chew their food like a vacuum cleaner sucking in dusts. if you're a fan of " how i met your mother"(the series) there is an episode on Lily eating like that. it is irritating ok? keep your mouth close and chew quietly.

3. the feet rester

somehow the cinema is like home to these people. manners and consideration are left at their own home. they think that their feet smells like flower. these people like to put their feet on the seat in front of them irregardless of whether the seat is occupied or not. maybe they're born with extra long legs. as though the space between the seats are narrow. somehow these people manage to do it. salute to them for being an imbecile~

4. the seat kicker

shaking your leg is fun! why not kick the seat in front and share the joy? enough said! next time bring your own isqueeze and place your legs inside and vibrate til you "song song" (hokkien).

5. the armrest hogger

i know you're big and macho and if the regular seat doesn't fit, buy the couple seat. don't hog people's arm rest. we pay for the same fare ok? whether i use the arm rest or not it doesn't matter. that is my personal space so please respect it. i don't know you that well!

6. the big time businessman

these people are either BTC (boh tak chek - hokkien) or big time businessman. direct translation for BTC is never go to school. they are forever on the phone even while the movie is running. if you wish to talk on the phone, then don't watch movie. we don't want to hear about your million dollars transactions.

before the movie start, the management had already informed everyone to put your handphone on silent mode. listen to instructions. those things are there for a reason.

7. last but not least, the snorer

i know you're tired and you love your girlfriend/wife or the movie is boring. but if you want to sleep, please do it in the comfort of your own home. it is not a crime to sleep but please don't snore like a chainsaw switched ON. we actually want to know what's happening on the screen in front of us. be considerate.


if you have experienced any of this, you'll understand what i'm talking about. if you're of the culprit, please stop and love thy cinema neighbour.

Hanazen

we celebrated father's day a day earlier not because of kiasu-ness . but yours truly is working on 20th june. yeah! it sucks to work on sunday. any given sunday for that matter.

we will normally celebrate it with the whole family, meaning uncles & aunties and grandparents. but since my grandpa passed away last year, we've decided to have a private dinner this year. it's just my dad, mom, brother, sister & hubby.

and knowing chinese family we normally go to a chinese restaurant and have a bloody 9 course dinner. thank god to my "open to change" dad, he suggested japanese food and he chose Hanazen at jaya one. i know where the hell the place is but have never set foot there before for many reasons.

  • i'm not a craze jap foodie
  • i don't eat raw fish
  • no money to eat coz it's normally expensive
  • no patience to wait for the table coz it's always full irregardless of which jap outlet
  • no jap chef. all chinese "mata sepet" chef only
however, this time i make the exception coz it's father's day. anyhow, when we got there voila! no available table (duh!) coz we didn't make any reservation.

the chefs are all "cina beng" (didn't see any good lookings one). and the bill came up to rm300 plus. so far i've been complaining but it was actually a fun night.

from the moment we go to the restaurant, we started cam whoring. it's out of boredom coz it took forever to get a table. if i'm lucky, i get to have dinner with my family once a week. sometimes once in 2 weeks. once again i blame the rostering department (gotta point my finger at something right?)

dad looked extremely happy and encouraged me to order the kobe beef but i decline graciously. coz it's expensive and i'm stingy. and whatever that goes into my stomach will eventually out down south so why waste it? my digestive is super efficient. so no-no don't waste good shit (pardon the pun).

i opt for sukiyaki instead coz it's soup based with lots of veg (good for health) and a few slices of beef (cheap ass stuff but taste good). dad ordered sushi platter but the plate is too plain and not decorative enough coz it's rm60 (a platter). can't remember the rest of the dishes coz i'm not fluent with jap menu.

it's great to see how happy my family is. i am grateful for the love and joy we have as a family. anyway, enough nonsense already.

Happy Father's Day to my dad (you may visit his blog if you're interested) and to all father around the world.

by the way, mr indy wishes mr husband a "Happy Father's Day" too. he is grateful to you for feeding him when mommy is not around. she must be busy gallivanting somewhere or busy sleeping. with love mr indy the cutie.

A very humble chef indeed....

met up with some friends last night for makan & talk cock session. as everyone's busy working, we only get to meet up once in a while. anyway, we met up at damansara heights (tepi jalan) and ate at a place called "the humble chef". to be precise, it is not a cafe or place or restaurant. it should be called "meals on wheels".

the place is operated by 2 guys and 1 girl. they are nice & friendly. basically, you'll feel very at home there. the place is simple with just a few tables and chairs placed by the road side. i experienced "cafe world" moments there (i know i'm a bloody geek).

according to JL, the place is normally packed with patrons and it'll take a while for the food to be served. but i guess that it was our lucky day(night...hehe) coz our orders came swiftly.

we had their specialty; lamb pita and spaghetti. we almost went to food heaven when we took our first bite. it was awesome! yes, i'm not exaggerating..they are really that good.

i will suggest this place to all who love food. the only setback is that they do not have a toilet. but what do you expect from the place?

lamb pita only costs RM 4 while the spaghetti is RM5. they even sell homemade chocolate chip cookies.

after all our tummies are filled and yummy, we went our separate ways (home) with a smile on our faces.

*too excited to makan & forgot to take pics...next time maybe~

Dream Job or Helluva Job?

when i'm alone i sometimes wonder whether is this really a dream job like what everyone says. it's fun and you get to travel. yeah, to some people it may be. but for me, well, i am home sick most of the time and i can't get a goodnight sleep when i'm put up at a hotel. maybe it's the bed, the pillows or the weird noises in the background, above the ceiling, besides the bed. maybe ghost stories from seniors. sigh who knows?

on the outside, we slab on layers & layers of ICI paint and look glamorous but anyone can look half decent with makeup on. like duh! anyway, putting on makeup is sometimes a pain in the ass coz it is obviously no good for the skin. flying tends to dehydrate the skin as well. and the hours spent walking, standing, smiling...too much of anything is not a good thing~

at times, even with all the bullshit i do enjoy my job. there are always good and bad days. it's a matter of how you see it and how you want it to be. just tell yourself that " i choose to be happy & cheerful today". it does make a difference~

what i like the most would be cloud watching. it seems so peaceful. just me and the clouds. flying higher & higher floating floating high up in the air~

A Love Story

about 2 yrs ago, i was having a hard time with my life. (drama queen mode ON) a walking zombie to be exact!

then one day mr husband picked me up from work and told me that we have a "visitor". as usual, i got excited coz i love company. (this is due to my kepoh gene)

"who is it" i asked.
"you'll know when we get home" replied mr husband.
"but i wanna know. is it mr x?" <---mr husband's good friend from his hometown.
"no, it's not him. don't ask anymore silly question. you'll know when we get home"

i frowned and yet excited inside, trying to guess who the mysterious visitor was.

when we got home, the lights were off and there was nobody home.

"hey! you liar~ why did you lie to me? there's nobody here!" (angry mode on coz kena tipu)
"it is inside the toilet. i'm not lying"

i told him that it's not funny.

"is it a snake or what?" I'll pee in my pants, scream at the top of my lungs and faint at the same time"

this is not a joke..i'm serious~

"you and your questions. can you just go in and have a look?"
"okay fine!"

i crack open the toilet door and peek. there's nothing in there...sheessh
*show muka beh syiok*

"look inside the pail"
i did and guess wat i saw?

a white furry ball was inside nibbling on a piece of biscuit. not just any biscuit ok? but those lotte biscuits i got from korea. i fell in love then. confirm that it is love at first sight.

it is the cutest thing ever. i called it "IT" coz i wasn't sure of its' sex.

"how did he get here? did u buy it? why only one?"

apparently, it came into our home from god knows where. mr husband got home from work and went into his "office" room, switched on the light and this small furry white ball scurry outta the room. mr husband caught it and imprison it with a piece of biscuit inside the pail.

i named him mr indiana jones-ooi or mr indy coz he is an adventurer and he has balls. he is a winter white hamster :) i stayed on the 6th floor of an apartment building so you can imagine his "ballsiness".

nobody claimed to have lost their pet so i adopted him until today.
he is my love and joy besides mr husband. from the day he came into my life up until today he is still my lovely mr son.

i love you mr indy and i always will. live long & prosper!!!

Rainy days are scary days

i was in kk yesterday for work and had to fly back to base in the afternoon after a minimum rest of 13 hours...on the way to the airport was jammed coz it was raining cats & dogs. it took us forever to get there. almost dozed off and went into dreamland.

when we finally arrived at the airport, we have to get our bags scanned twice. after that, we reached the bay and there was not many passengers around. good news~ light load. but alas! after checking with the ground staff our flt was full. damn! we never have such good luck as it is the school holiday season now and everyone is rushing into their holidays. sometimes i wonder whether these people need to work or not.

more bad news to come~
our aircraft have not arrived! and my colleagues went off for a quick lunch. they practically have to wolf down their lunch coz we had no idea what time the aircraft is arriving.
by the time we got back to the bay, we were told that the aircraft have not arrived due to heavy rain. that was also the pilots' guess. the sky was clouded by dark black clouds.

the airport was freaking cold with the full blast aircond and heavy rain outside. we sat there and waited closed to 2 and a half hours. a lot of passengers were stranded there. looking lost and so were we. some even took up their courage to ask us whether they are at the right place to board the plane. we told them yes and ask them to wait. it was like pigs waiting to be slaughtered.

after a long wait, we spotted an aircraft approaching. our hopes were up but it was an airbus 330. no such luck~ and a few more minutes after that another aircraft approach. it was another airbus 330. dang!

we saw some pilots coming out and kepoh our way over to ask the whereabout of our aircraft. apparently our aircraft was holding in the air for a while and due to shortage of fuel, the aircraft have to divert back to the previous station to wait for the rain to ease before another attempt of take off and landing.

***

finally when our aircraft has arrived, we board the plane and get to work (fast!) because we have another 2 sectors to go. safety equipments were checked and catering had arrived to load the meals for our hungry passengers. we put on our best smile (despite the long delay and exhaustion from waiting...) and greet our beloved passengers.

a man came in with his laptop bag and he stopped in front of me and asked me, "excuse me miss. is it safe to put my laptop there?" (pointing at the overhead compartment)

i smiled at him and replied, " well, the overhead compartment are for bags and that's where the rest of the passengers put their bags. however, if you feel that it is not safe, you may place your bag underneath your seat" (and smile a bigger smile eventhough i think he's a moron)

anyhow, the rest of the boarding was smooth sailing. and we prepare for take off.
after serving the meals, and 2-3 rounds of tray collections. we sat down to have our long anticipated meal.

a male passenger who had nothing to do and bored outta his brain came to the galley area to chitchat. we are really hungry and had no time to layan him. so we just ate. and he walked off. i know this sounds really bad and seem very mean of us but we are only human and need food to operate.

we ate in silence and for once breathe a sigh of relieve. our stomachs are once again yummy~

part of the job is to walk around the cabin to check on the passengers needs and wants. and this time a lady came up to me.
"excuse me miss. how come it's so cold today? normally the cabin is warm"
"well, madam as you can see. it rained heavily today hence the coldness. but i've already informed the captain to increase the cabin temperature. so don't worry it will not be cold after this."
"is it?" ( she looks at the windows)
(me thinking to myself...oh gosh...we're flying so high up in the air. how are you gonna see the rain)

i smiled at her and walked off.

sometimes, there are just a too many moronic people out there. and as a cabin crew there is nothing that we can do. coz we can't help this people to develop their brain.

Life As It Is

waking up at god knows what time and the sun has been up like forever. yawning and lazing around rolling on the bed til kingdom come. if i'm lucky, i'll get to do that for a couple of days a week. and i truly thank god for that. (we must be thankful for everything yeah...)

at times i have to wake up at the break of dawn, sometimes pre-dawn or twilight...(am i even using the right word here?) to go to work. when this shit happens, i blame the people working in the rostering department. WTH were they thinking? that is the best time to sleep and dream of flying drumsticks, yummy domino's chix wings, mao san wong durian and edward cullen (the yummy vamp...oh yeah baybeh u know what i'm talking bout...*grin*)

some days, i walk around like a zombie(only to work)...or zombie-like coz it's not possible to look like a zombie... does zombie even exists? anyway, u know what i mean... lack of sleep due to anxiety of oversleeping and miss the alarm blares. or too much food that causes indigestion the night before...damn those lok lok vans near home...

Start with a BIG BANG

i have been contemplating for a while whether to start blogging again. coz i'm not a someone who finishes what i've started. like the chinese saying, "sam fan jung yuet dou".

anyway, i've just finished watching the 3 seasons of "The Big Bang Theory". i have to say i love the tv series. it is definitely different from other series. total nerd nation and anal to the max. my fave character of coz is dr sheldon cooper. coz he's the anal-ess of them all.

can't wait til september coz season 4 is starting again...woohoo...

"Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait...
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries,
That all started with the big bang!"

Cool song by Barenaked Ladies....
