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 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.

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.
