Talent Hub: La Senza Pin-Up store launch performance

Talent Hub: La Senza Pin-Up store launch performance: La Senza launched their latest Pin-Up concept store in One Utama on 3rd November 2011. Our 20 dancers performed an upbeat and exciting dance...

I choose you, Pikachu!

Say hello to Pikachu!

Bright, loud, and full of power!

I got this SE 1.5 Myvi towards the end of September and I'm loving it. Sure it took a bit of getting used to. I'm still working on the handling of the car, but at least, after her first service, she doesn't guzzle as much petrol anymore. I used to have to refill her tank within a week. But now it's definitely over.

It's funny switching from a 1k cc engine to this 1.5. The change in fuel consumption is very very obvious, and bear in mind that I've been driving my old red kelisa for 8 years before I got Pikachu.

The story of getting the Myvi:
When the new Myvi 1.3 was launched back in June, I placed an order for the sleek purple Myvi elegance. I wasn't too impressed with the exterior facelift, however, I was enchanted by the new interior design. Prior to this, I never had a GPS device, so I was bent to get the built in navigation system on the Myvi, which led me to the Elegance.

A couple of months passed, and no news on the delivery of the purple Elegance. Then they launched the 1.5. After being convinced to switch to the 1.5, I requested for the purple one again, or silver, whichever comes faster. Within a week, I received a call that my car was ready to be delivered. Since I sorta requested purple or silver, I asked what colour this one was. Imagine my surprise when I was told that it's yellow. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't hate yellow, and I think the yellow is a beautiful shade, and it really stands out on the car. But that's also the thing.. I didn't quite want to stand out. The colour is loud, and I didn't feel like being so obvious that I just got a new car.

I had like, two-three days to decide whether to take the yellow or not. Upon hearing several advices, I went with it since it's already available, wherelse there's no telling when the purple SE 1.5 will ever emerge. And here comes Pikachu!

The name Pikachu was suggested by Steven. People used to ask when I was gonna get my Barney (during the time I was expecting the purple).

I do know that there has been more purple Myvis out there now, but I'm glad I got my Pikachu. No regrets there :)

The Games I Play Lately

Ramadan and Raya came and left. If you were on my facebook, you'd probably know that Steven came by Malaysia to celebrate one of the most festive seasons in Malaysia :) I seriously believe men in 'baju melayu' look sooooo hot and dashing!

And now he's back home :( Can't wait till the next meet. But I don't know when yet... :(

Anyway, just wanna share some of the games I've been playing on and off recently. Some iPhone games is listed here as well, but not all.. there's too many. lol! But I say, iphone apps make waiting sooo much more bearable now.

  1. Dragon Saga: To me it's something between Maplestory and WoW. Lag is not bad, I probably have much better connection if I ever upgrade to Unifi. Steven found this game while looking for a game that both of us could play, since I can't play Maplestory anymore :( Stupid region block.
  2. Transformice: It's a simple game, but sooo entertaining. It's short 2-3 min rounds makes it a good time filler. But it's hard to get off it as well, making me procrastinate at times XD
  3. Epicmafia: Realtime mafia/"werewolf". Practise lying acting skills here.
  1. Plants vs Zombies: Used to play this a bit, till I got all the achievements. But now it's updated with tonnes of mini games and more achievements, it goes back to the main list :D
  2. Monopoly: On of my fav time fillers.
  3. Bakery Story: Cuz the food looks yum. Some colleagues were playing this, and now so am I :3
That's all I can think for now. Too many? I dunno :o *thinks about the outdoor activities I'm up to as well....*


  • When there's more than two ways to look at something, those who take things negatively all the time, will be unhappy all the time.
  • Little pleasant surprises are the best.
  • The waiting game is always the horror.
  • Sometimes, you just have to be really thick skinned.
  • One should sometimes be selfish to be unselfish to others.
  • Some things are hard to explain... and it's harder when no one's listening.
  • Don't judge others.. you have no idea what they've been through.
  • I still can't figure out, if emotions is a good or bad thing...
  • I'd be totally pissed if someone tells me to give up my passion...
  • Some say, it's the thought that counts. I believe, it's the intention that matters.
  • I love cats...
  • How do you stop yourself crying at places where you're not supposed to cry?
  • How do you focus when your mind is weighed down by the troubles of your love?
  • When will you seek to understand?
  • I still feel like I need a second job.......... hmmmm.....

The bittersweet Monday

The bitter: Monday blues. Nothing new. It was generally okay at work, with a bit of drama and wtf moments. There's still a bit of frustration of trying to pick up ppl's work that's in many many pieces. I do learn a lot still through that, but my slowness is not something I'm happy with at the moment.

The sweet: It's travel time again soon. A bit of of a bitter part is that I still have so much to do and I've not yet packed. As at now (near 11 pm) I just took down my big luggage from on top of the cupboard. I wonder if I can just travel with an empty back, come back with a full one ;D

Funny or sad thing, I'm not sure, but every time I blog the same old phrase comes to mind all the time. Time flies. This time it feels like it hasn't been that long since I last traveled. And here I am (albeit blogging instead of packing) packing my bags again.

Here's hoping for a safe, good and fruitful trip :) Steven's away to Scotland as well I think. Last I heard, he just arrived in England.

Let's do this!

Two Birthdays and a Car

Getting a car for a birthday is like a dream, isn't it?

Two birthdays passed since the last post, and I was "slightly" occupied with preparing for them. No, there was no car involved in any birthday gifts or so. They, my mum and bro, are already driving bigger cars than myself ;P

Anyway, I've been hunting for a new car, since my Kelisa has started to show many signs of aging. I still love my Kelisa. But I do know when it's time to let go...

I shortlisted some cars that are compact/hatchback as I am not keen into driving a much bigger car, not even the Honda City.

Suzuki Swift: I've longed for that car since I first saw it. I still do. But my wallet and monthly expenses disagree with my choice, and so I had to let it go... for now.
Hyundai Getz: Something about its back, I don't like.
Kia Picanto: A very good friend told me, avoid Kia cars at all cost. If it weren't for that advise, I was really leaning towards this cutie.
Honda Jazz: Another beauty that would break my wallet.
Perodua MyVi: The new one, not the old. While I'm not that impressed with the new exterior design, I am enthralled by its interior. I don't know why, I just am. :P The purple is a beaut as well. My issue with this car is the new back which looks like a bigger Viva, and I had a bit of ego which didn't want to drive a car so common. So I tell myself, while I'm driving it, I'll be inside, not outside. So the interior matters more. It's gentle to my budget as well.

So MyVi it is. I now just hope I get to book one from the first batch (only 8000 units, launched 16 June)

Total Blur Moment of the Day

And it's only 8.25 AM. Getting onto the Penchala Link, I realised that my office tag wasn't hanging on the mirror in the car. I was like dammit, I'd have to take the visitor's pass and pay meals with cash. (The night before, my pass was kept in my gym bag as I had dance class after work)

I pondered whether I require anything from my cabinet today, as the keys are with the pass. Then as I pulled into the office parking lot, again, dammit, I do need something from my cabinet. Therefore, I have to at least go back home during lunch hour to pick up my keys (pass).

It was only when I got out of the car I realised.. I've been wearing my tag the whole time. When did I put it on? Where was it? Until now, I haven't got a clue.

I've been better.

It hasn't been a week since I got so uptight.

And honestly when people ask me if I'm ok now, I don't know actually. Am I ok? How do I tell if I'm ok? I'm still my usual chatty self, but I don't know if I'm ok.

Sometimes, I also wonder if I'm in denial. If I really am trying to convince myself that I'm making the right decision. Actually, I may not be, and there may be consequences, right? But what's life without taking risks and making decisions?

Things will suck, and it's easy to blow up and complain about it. It's harder to fix it. It's hard, but it's possible. That's the challenge.

Why do we shout?

A good friend and colleague of mine shared a story via e-mail, which is almost like this story below. (The difference was that in his story, it was a 'guru' rather than a 'saint'). I don't know where the story originated, but it's nice anyway.

A saint asked his disciples, ‘Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?’
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.’
‘But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?’ asked the saint. ‘Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you’re angry?’
Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint.
Finally he explained, ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.’

Then the saint asked, ‘What happens when two people are in love with each other? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small…’

The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens?
They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’

MORAL: When you argue do not let your hearts get distant, do not say words that distance each other more, else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.


My first thought about why I shout when I'm angry, was because I felt like the other didn't listen. And I guess when you associate the scenario of someone not hearing you, you shout louder in hopes they will listen.

I think it applies the same for online chatting. You start using CAPS LOCK because you feel the other person is not reading what you're typing.

I need anger management.

Counseling, theraphy, whatever.

At least after that first line, I've mellowed down a bit.

Earlier my thoughts were jumbled up between stuff that I want to scream out, and stupid stuff nobody should ever think of.

Here's the jumbled 'mind':

Kick the door. Slam the car. Break something. Cry. I never listen to you. We never listen to you. If you say you can only do things when you're around, it's like I may as well find someone here. If you want to give and expect something in return, please don't. Run away from home. Can't run away from problems. Playing games make you forget the problems. You seem to forget how cranky you used to be after work, and you expect me to be so energized after? Why are you making it so hard? You don't understand, you think you know me but you don't. Why can't you do things yourself?? There's no initiative anywhere. Just because YOU like to snoop around, doesn't mean everyone else does. You always feel like there's eyes watching you. You have double standards. You don't try enough. There's always limitations. You're so into showing off to other people. What happened to simplicity, moderation and humility? Break something, break something now. Curl up in a corner, forget everyone else. Lose everyone else. Kick it. Alone, stay alone. DON'T make me choose. I need to talk to someone. I need to see someone. I have noone to talk to. NOBODY can comfort me. Nobody cares. They say they do. But they just want to control you. I'm stupid. So what if I am. You've been rude, that is not cool and I've lost a lot of respect for you. It's all about pleasing you, you don't care how I feel, how I felt. You're the one who left me to be like this and you're still continuing to do it. Because you weren't around I had to be there. Because you won't listen I had to. Who listens to me? You think I have so much money?? JUST STOP with that double standards. You raised me up to follow the rules and now you keep prodding me to break them. You won't listen. You're too stubborn with your damn narrow mindedness to push beyond. You're stuck in a room even when there's a door. It's always about what you can't do, and exerting your limitations. It's ALWAYS about what you can't do. How could you say things like that, I've never thought you to be that narrow minded. I'm so not surprised you had to find others to back you up. YOU DON'T care about my needs. I'M SURE you will always say that you care, BUT IF YOU REALLY DO I won't feel damn angry and fucked up. MAYBE I am meant to be alone. You want to be like all the people around you, why can't you just appreciate what you have? WHAT'S with all these clutter? Is it THAT HARD to reply? WHY DO YOU BOTHER? To pretend that you care? Why are you so easily influenced by peer pressure? Why are you so embarrassed by us? If you can't fulfill my needs regardless where you are, what's the point of the relationship in the first place? I like skirts. Don't freakin' forget and drop things like a hot potato. Screw it, I don't know what 'family' means. What happened to respect and diversity? Compromise? You CAN'T always get what you want. Can I smash this partition? Why so fancy? Why is it you care so much what other say about you, but not so much what we say about you? Do they really care for you? Why don't they ever visit you?

I need help. AND at this rate, I'm NOT gonna get any. Negative remarks will be ignored.

What can I write in 10 minutes?

I have roughly ten minute before I head out and meet up with Li Li :) It's been a while since we sat and chat, tho today is a little different.

She's going for her first manicure and pedicure :D Hopefully this may help curb a lil' bad habit of hers ;)

The weather this week has been quite bleh. It was rather rainy, like, raining the whole day for the first half of the week. Then beginning Thursday, it's hot. It's just so so hot. Barely any clouds in the sky.

Possibly because of the weather, I started feeling a little 'under the weather'. It started with some itchy/sore/dry throat, and non stop sneezing. Forcing myself to drink a lil' more than usual seems to help prevent any further sickness. Now I'm just headache-y. But that may have been attributed to other things.

Tomorrow's spa session with the mummy should also help me to relax. Everything's been so stressful lately, and there seem to be no refuge anywhere or with anyone. But I won't elaborate on that here, because it's private :P But still, spa is nice... especially when it's cheap :) (tmr's deal only costs RM36 per person!) Thank you group discount sites :)

Now that it's May.. I'm not sure what to look forward to next, besides the above and some work to do at home.

That's ten minutes.

(Including blank moments)

Insert Title Here before it keeps changing

There's a bunch of things I'd like to write about.

But when I sit at the laptop to write about it, I get distracted.

There are too many other things I wanna do at the same time. Likewise when I'm sitting at the PC.

Today's Steven's birthday. Happy Birthday :*

In my haste this morning to send him an e-card, I accidentally sent it to the wrong e-mail. Goodness knows if that e-mail address exists.. xD But I heard gmail doesn't allow underscores, so I may be safe from embarrassment :D

Just two weeks ago I celebrated my birthday. ^^ I get younger each year :D

What can I get for RM20 at most?

Almost a month after Christmas, my department's having a secret santa thingy with presents loosely capped at RM20.

Currently, I've no idea what to buy.

I also have no idea what to put on my wishlist that is within RM20.

So after pondering for a bit, I think I found some items that I want that may be below RM20. But I still don't know what to get for my recipient........

I need ideas!
