Finding a needle in a haystack

Trying to come out looking smart with an English saying for a post title. This is the sole purpose of this blog post. Nah! I'm just pulling your leg, I AM SMART! Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you the exact same thing. Hehe...

I always thought that locating something in a woman's handbag is like finding a needle in a haystack. Especially those who favours big handbags. I am one of those people. I don't understand how a woman can fit everything that she possibly need in a small bag aka clutch size.

Here are some examples of MUST have in a woman's handbag :
Wallet for paper money
Coin purse for those jiggly nonsense
Name card holder
Powerbank (for heavy smartphone user like myself)
Sunglasses (cool factor)
Notebook and pens (blue and black)
Umbrella for rainy days (the weather is super unpredictable these days)
Hand mirror (to check for food that's stuck between the teeth)
Tissue papers (to wipe mouth, hand and ass)
Digital, Lomography, Instant Camera (you don't want to miss those moments and I sometimes carry up to 3 cameras in my handbag, this is no laughing matter)

Alternative things that MIGHT be found in a woman's handbag :
Sachets of sugar (this is friend does carry sugar I swear)
Gums (for that fresh breath)
Mouthwash, toothbrush set (for after meal)
Hand sanitizer (to prevent germs infection)
Grooming kit 
Calculator (despite owning a smartphone, my friend still carries a calculator coz you don't know when you need to calculate big numbers...hehe)
Water Bottle (to prevent dehydration, Malaysia is a hot country)
Full make up kit (you just don't know when you need to attend an event and you wanna look fab)

The above is not the full list of items that a lady carries in their handbag. I did my research by interviewing at least 5 ladies (fyi).

So, the next time if you call your girlfriend and she did not pick up you call at the first attempt, she is not cheating on you. She just can't locate her phone >_< Who could? When there's a mini mart going on there.

I couldn't find a proper photo of handbags, so I thought that you might wanna say hi to my rabbit plush Mr Ding Ding Dong.

Beauty Box by Fabulous Finds

There are so many interesting things in life that I don't know about especially beauty products. I'm either ignorant or plain lazy. But I think I'm leaning more towards the latter. There are no ugly women in the world, just lazy ones - a quote by Coco Chanel.

Beauty box by Fabulous Finds was introduced to me by my bff Ms AY. She is an online scavenger and she said that she had too much time on hand. She is partially a "tai tai" now who owns a mischievious and naughty guinea pig.

She got me the beauty box subscription as a gift for my birthday back in August and so far I've received my 2nd box of surprise. To be honest, this is kinda exciting not knowing what you're gonna get the following month. This is a highly suitable gift for yourself and a girlfriend. You get to reward yourself with beauty products that you would not normally purchase.

What type of people should consider subscribing to a beauty box service :
- you're not sure whether a certain brand of beauty products suits your skin type
- you don't want to buy full size products in case you hated it
- too busy to scoure for new products but open to try new things
- you love beauty products (period!)
- you get bored easily but love surprises
- you love luxury beauty products but not willing to part with your hard earned moolah

What if I don't like the products that was sent to me ?
- give it away to someone who wants it
- swap the product with someone in exchange for a product that you want (bff's idea and it's brilliant!)
- use it on your pet (just kidding!)

Here are the photos of 2 of my beauty box :

My August beauty box.

My September beauty box.

So far I love it. And I love sample size products coz it's fantastic for travelling. Lightweight, compact and I can bring more variety. I am not paid by them to write about this. I just thought that this would be something great to share with all the ladies who love the same thing as I do and an idea for the guys who are scratching their head wondering what to buy for their lady love. is the website that my bff ordered for me and herself. There are many others offering the same service. But I love Fabulous Finds packaging and it's in pink!

Mortal Enemy Part 2

My panties has been caught in a bunch lately due to a dilemma that I've been facing at home. My mortal enemy is not backing down from its current position. It wants to be seen and I don't want to see it. 

I thought that things will change when we got back from our weekend getaway to Penang. But alas! I was wrong, oh so wrong. My leg washing habit after entering the house was rudely interrupted. Lo and behold, what was waiting for me when I walked into the bathroom? The bloody baby lizard was on all four and gave me the cock stare. Ahhhhhhhh! I screamed!

Mr Hubs was sent in to "handle" the situation. He felt that it's inhumane to kill it so he tried to flush it down the drain with water. Well, he did that and I dared to enter the bathroom after that but with loads of peeking around to ensure that his comrades are not around. Who knows how many of them are around eh?

That was yesterday.....
This evening after work, we got home at the same time and walk into the house. I normally do not detour into Mr Hubs' "office". But something caught my eye and I immediately stood still! A baby lizard is hiding behind one of his monitor. OMFG! What does this little shit have to torment us like this ? Don't it have better places to go ? Like the Lizzie Land or Lizzie in the Wonderland or something ? He was shoo-ed away (don't ask me how I know its sex..but I just think that it's male).

This has to end. And soon..... I've been having sleepless nights...TRUE STORY.

Trust issue

I am afraid of old houses. Not because it looks old and haunted. It's how the houses was built. Especially the bathroom and toilet area. In the old days, the shower and toilet area are built separately. Perhaps it's a matter of convenience. One and shower and the other could do it's business separately and due to the vast space available. The modern houses is more of a 2-in-1 concept, where one can shit and shower in the same area.

I am currently in my in-laws place and it reminds me of a story I heard of long ago. My parents live in an old terrace house. Built way before I was born and have the separate bath and toilet thingy. And my old neighbours has mostly kicked the bucket long ago and therefore their house are rented out to students in the nearby university.

In the old days, the bathroom and toilet door is not built full frame like the ones today. I don't understand why. Is it because people in those days were so trusting that there's no need for a full frame door ? And the materials used to build houses were of sturdier materials compared to today. (I pluck this information from my ass, I'm by no mean a specialist on building materials). It's purely my own thought and hope that this does not offend any developer.

Back to the story of trust. I heard from my old neighbourhood grapevine (kepoh aunties) that something cynical happened. A girl took a shower after classes and it was in the afternoon or something and she felt as though someone was watching her. When she turned her head, one of the male housemate was on the other side (toilet area) and was peeking at her taking a bath. Sick adolescent! She screamed and screamed and this case was not reported. How many students actually fall victim to this? Nobody knows. These are students from out of state, away from family to further their education in a foreign place and this is what happened to them. I feel for them and after hearing this story, I will look around when I take a shower if I happen to be in an old house. Not that I do not trust the people around me and not that I have a body that people wanna look at. But the thought of it is scary. I have trust issues with old houses.

Probably I was brought up to be weary of things and people around me. Or I could just be mental. And the modern developer feels the same way hence the full frame door for toilets in modern houses

Next time you take a shower, look around.

Mortal enemy

I had to face my mortal enemy in the eye every evening before my after work shower. This enjoyable activity had to be postponed because of its constant appearance in the bathroom. Despite its minute stature, it is the ultimate master of trickery. I have promise death upon it and see to it until it takes its last breath.

It will only grace its appearance when I'm home alone, catching me off guard. I will not fall for its trickery no longer. It will die before it grow any bigger.

I had to wait patiently (and naked too!) outside the bathroom (somewhere in the house) for it to leave. Then I peek into the bathroom stall meekly to ensure that it has left the area. Tip toe into the stall, eyes darting left and right, up and down before I breathe a sigh of relief and turn on the shower. It has been a stressful week, especially during bath time.

If it doesn't die, I think i will die soon from shock.

Black Monday

Today's tragedy brought new meaning to Monday blues. My version though is Black Monday. 

I woke up groggy because of the weather (it looks like rain) and was excited to go to work (i know it's uncommon). But I am normally super hyper on Mondays and the rest of the week my energy slowly die away. 

Drove to work as usual and traffic from home wasn't so bad until KL. It was badly jammed up thanks to the traffic police chatting away by the side of the road and not take charge. When 3 lanes merged into 2, it normally slows down traffic and this is when assholes try to squeeze their way in despite the narrow way. 

Being a cautious and responsible driver, I put on the signal as a sign that I want to go right but have not because there was a line of motorcyclist on my right. So I waited for my turn and this MF* motorcyclist came quite near to my Mother Teresa (my car's name) and kicked real hard on the door. Why ? Because I have the potential to hit his bike (yes, his stupid bike and I was nowhere near this MF*). Gave him a WTF honk and he flick me the bird or is it flip the bird? It's gonna take hours to have this argument of which is the right expression. Rude MF* and a bloody road bully! Anyway, I noticed that he has sausage fingers and not his number plate. 

Finally parked my car and was walking to the building with my colleague, complaining about what happened earlier and something fell on my head. My first thought was, "OMFG don't fucking tell me it's bird shit!" but it's not. It's some random dry stuff, could be dried poop or leaves. I breathe a sigh of relief.

Got to work a minute late, I can never catch a break! And got started on work and some chitchat on the happenings of previous weekend. By noon, the air cond stopped working for a bit and it got warm. Or maybe it was just me feeling hot over the earlier drama. 

During lunch, my colleagues got their meal except for mine. My order came approximately 20 minutes before lunch hour is over. Had to wolf down the bloody mee hoon soup. Got back to work and things went back to normal or so I thought.

My normal drive home after work is about 1 hr 15 mins (on a good day). This evening it took me 2 hours!!! 2 fucking hours and do I deserve this punishment ??!!???? I'm gonna go sleep off the bad juju and hope for a better tomorrow.

Lazy Sunday & Hello Monday!

All I wanna do every weekend is to lie down on the sofa and play Tetris Battle on Facebook. Please disregard the background image of the dustbin filled with tissue paper. It would be perfect if someone sits next to me and feed me food and drink at the same time. That is how lazy I feel.


This is my cousin's dog Heavenly Angel and I think her expression is how I feel about Monday. Welcome back to work everyone.

Garage sale & VW

Slept late last night despite extreme tiredness. Had my usual Friday night coffee at my favorite coffee joint with friends and went home. I was excited to get home to start working on my food blog. After many years, it's time to attempt to change the layout of the blog. I recently bought my own domain for it and it will be a waste if I maintain the page as per the usual blogger's template without any widget to enhance it.

After straining my already tired eyes to read through the 'How to' on uploading and make minor changes to the template, I finally made it happen. Someone once said, "if you want something bad enough, don't just think but make it happen". It's my attempt of stepping up.

Had 5-6 hours of sleep and off we went to a Lomography "Garage Sale" and was deeply disappointed as with any "so-called" sales in this country. There was probably less than 10 types of item on sale and it's the expensive shit. Other stuff that I wanted to buy was on regular price. Duh! 

Off we went to KLCC for lunch and to the " Volkswagen Show 2012 : The Icon is back" with Mr Hubs. It was my first time and I was pretty impressed. With some cool driving skills to showcase the new Beetle and some dancing by performers.

By the time around 8-ish to 9, I was pretty tired. Thoughts of lying on the bed became much stronger. Invitation for drinks are all politely declined as sleep is imminent.

Diana Mini Lomography Camera

My group of friends bought me a Lomography Camera ; Diana Mini to be exact. It is a cute little thing and light to hold. It's made of plastic after all. And I love it! Because I don't have to startup the thing, just load 35mm film and snap away. People who know me knows that I love to snap pictures but I'm damn slow. Hence, moments are usually lost when I'm ready to snap. Except for when I'm using my good friend's DSLR, that is cool but I can't afford to get one for myself yet.

Pretty busy and occupied now with old school film photography. I am very fascinated with the toy camera and am glad to be able to snap with films again. There's a lot of learn with loads of trial and errors. And this proved to be an expensive hobby.

Before I start, I watched numerous youtube Diana Mini tutorials on the dos and don'ts and general use. What I like about it is that it's not digital and you really have to learn to be patient and wait for the results from the photo lab when the roll is being developed.

Say hello to Buttercup!

Diana Mini in its package

Diana Mini with its booklet, Buttercup (you have to buy this separately), color gels and hot shoe should you need to use the flash on another camera.

My first roll of film is being developed by the photolab. Let's just hope that the photos turn out alright. I don't want overexposure. Fingers crossed!

Season parking

I finally took the plunge and paid for season parking at work. And I got sick the next day! I reason with myself that the reason why I don't buy the season pass is public holidays and days when I get sick and that's often and it's not worth it.

When I finally 'man up' and paid for it, I'm out 1 day. Fucking hell and I'm jinxed.

It could be a coincidence... I don't really know coz I've been suffering from sore throat since Merdeka weekend. And this morning really kicks in with a fever. Doc said that it look sore and infected. Hell yeah! How else did the bloody fever come on?

And when I'm not at work, the whole fucking world is looking for me. When I'm so damn available nobody wanna call me...cursed I tell you.

I will think twice about season parking next month!
