>I was on my way back home and suddenly i received SMS from Vincent.

“Hey, u gt heard that tsunami wil come 2 kk? japan thr gt tsunami js nw, macam wil affect sabah here”

What a damn shocking news when I read that while driving. [Warning: Don’t read SMS while driving. It’s dangerous]

Thenafter, I heard from Hitz.fm saying that,

“Penang will not be hit by Tsunami. I repeat. Penang will not be hit by Tsunami”

OMG~ Seems like tsunami is back again after this natural disaster hit Aceh, Indonesia and other nation few years back ago. And right now, Japan is hit by earthquake and tsunami.


The beautiful city of Japan I took last year.

Let us pray for Japan and all of the places affected by the devastating 8.9 magnitude earthquake that happened on 11/3/2011. Is this sign that the Earth is actually dying? The end of the world? I have no clue. Only God knows 😦

Tsunami Alert for New Zealand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Hawaii, and others.

Hopes that Sabah will not being affected by this. Not forgeting, other nations too.

After Sailors’ Cafe, Wawa was craving for Mango with sago while Pat was craving for avocado. So, we decided went to Fruits Monster as the night is still young. For us, the night always young one. Looks like a surprised from my deariest when in Fruits Monster.

Sweet and adorable cupcake from non other than Boutique Cupcake

Thanks to my cute, pretty, lovely, sexy and smart but crazy deariest

The ladies and the cupcakes

See how crazy and madness we are? Playing with the cream and loud non-stop for that night.

To My Dearies:

Wawa, Pat Foo, Shing Wei and Jane. Thanks for the celebration. Every year, you all sure won’t miss out to celebrate my birthday. Really glad to have you as my crazy deariest. I love You. You love Me. We are Happy Family. =D

Wawa ever suggest to have “Ladies Night” at Sailors’ Cafe which located on the 2nd floor of the back building of Millenium Plaza. So last Sunday, I brought them there for my ideal weekend. =D

Reminds me of Popeye, the Sailor’s man. Puuupuuu IMG_2533 IMG_2553 Sailors' Cafe Love the cafe’s decoration

When I stepped into this cafe, I love the feel that the cafe brought into me. It gives me an inspiration to open my dream cafe, maybe… in future. I love the interior and decoration within the cafe – from the huge teddy bear (I so into bear bear recently) to the photo frame hanging on the wall. Most of the photo are the photo of the sea which makes you feel like you are sailing in the middle of the sea.

My meal – Grilled Chicken Chop with Mushroom sauce and frieds

At first, I plan to order Tom Yam Fried Rice, but Pat comment that I should order something that is Italian foods but I didn’t. Mainly because I want order grilled chicken chop but from what I saw in the menu, only grilled lamb is available and I DON’T EAT LAMB. However, maybe because I talked to loud, the friendly staff informed me that they do have grilled chicken chop by the way. So pai seh lah.

Wawa just had her mouth operation recently, so she wear mask. But what caught our attention was check out her T-shirt!

My deariest and I decide to visit Sailors’ Cafe again for our another round of “Ladies Night” as the place is so comfort to hang out with. Between, the price is so reasonable. Imagine, total cost for that night dinner – 5 main meals, 5 drinks and a dessert just cost RM80. The portion even so huge. A great cafe to hang out with your family and friends around KK town.

innit

A top, a belt and a sandal which I grabbed last Sunday while shopping with my Queen =D

What a lovely day I had when accompany my mom for shopping together on most weekend. Well, you tell me which lady doesn’t like to shopping, right? Both of us shop from the head to the toe but we never shop till we drop. Just too bad, sometimes the clock tick tock too fast and the shopping hour is so limited as my mom need to go back home early to prepare dinner.

So, what is my best ideal weekend? Besides shopping, my best ideal weekend is enjoy relaxing at home by sleeping continuously. Before I start to work on Saturday, if the time do not reach till 10am, I won’t wake up one. Its a big NO for me! Unless I had appointment with someone. But now, too bad I can’t lying more longer on my bed on Saturday because I need to work. =(

Wonder why there is only 2 days in weekend and now my weekend seems like not enough because of the half day working on Saturday. Apart from that, I keep wondering why there is only 7 days per week and not 8 days per week, so that we can have 3 days off on weekends. Here goes my day dreaming again. Lol~

For a working individual like me, every weekday is like a mathematics to me. Starting with Monday, sure non-stop countdown to reach till Friday or in my newest case, Saturday. Seems like everyday will countdown for the day to past by with my colleagues.

Let’s back to the story. I also love to spend my weekend by dating. Yeah, baby! Even me and TTM always meet each other and even sometimes almost 7 days a week but we never really had the real time for the just 2 of us only. So, weekend is the best time by hanging out, watching movie and etc. *wink*wink*

Not forgetting, having the wildest moment with my crazy deariest on weekend is the best moment to get rid off all the pressure, tension and stress that I had for the past 5 days. In deed, they are truly and madly crazy deariest I ever had in my life. Sharing the madness laughter and also funny but sexy stories. You go, gals~

What irritating me the most is sometimes, my weekend distract by something which I’m not interest with anymore. How can I shopping with my mom when I need to do something between 2pm – 4pm? Every Sunday, it’s my family day where my family and I would have breakfast together. Or I can said brunch together. So, most probably our brunch ends around 12 pm and we will do whatever we want. My dad will either sleep, watch TV or read newspaper meanwhile my 2 lil bros will playing game. Then, my mom and I will go for shopping. With the inconvenient time, how can I shopping if like that? My mom is a busy woman. She is only free on Sunday as she need to work on Saturday too.

Sometimes, I even asked to apply leave purposely just to attend few events which I don’t think is important in my life currently. As standing in my current age, the most important now is to have a stable career and in the stage of building strong and stable relationship. But, I just don’t get it why that related party doesn’t try to understand and tolerance with my current situation? Even when I’m seriously sick, I still being forced to attend or join whenever she asked to.

The main problem within myself is I don’t know how to say “No” to that related party that I don’t feel like I want join or attend anymore. Haiz. Don’t know why it seems like so hard for me to open my mouth and tell that party honestly regarding what I feel. Hopefully one day I hope that party will understand.

Starting from this month until the end of August, we need to go back office and working on every Saturday. So, today is our first day of working on Saturday for this year but we only work for half day.

Me and TTM start our “Japanese food hunting” for this month at Fukurou Japanese Restaurant as our lunch. You see, he is really addicted with Japanese foods. Although Fukurou is so near to our office, but he never had the chance to have meal there. Finally, he decided to have lunch at there.

Opposite of Wisma Damai Point, where we work
Most of their foods are not available. I was so desperate to order Tori Teriyaki Maki but too bad.
At the back of the menu, they even included the nutrition information

As for today lunch, both of us intend not to order heavy meal and just order sushi and maki.

Everytime we successfully held an activity such as Company annual dinner and trip, boss sure will spend us as an appreciation for all the hardwork that we had done. For previous appreciation lunch, boss spend us lunch at Fukurou Japanese Restaurant for the company trip and also at Upperstar for the previous year annual dinner.

This time around, he decided to spend us at Le Safran, a French inspired foods restaurant located at 3rd Floor of Suria Sabah, which opposite of the Eu Yu Sang.


A comfortable environment restaurant

As this is spend by the boss, so he do the all the ordering for us. Not sure what is the name of the dishes we are having, hence I just simple guessing to introduce the following foods.

The Drinks

It’s red in colour. When we taste it, seems like Ribena but it is less sugar type.

Appertizer / Starter

I guess this must be the mushroom soup. It is so creamy.

Main Course


Salmon served with cheese sauce. The fish is so soft and taste perfectly with the cheese.

Our meal end with the dessert – fresh fruit platter. That’s why no picture of it because it is just 3 slice of watermelon, honeydew and pineapple.


Enjoy your meal, ladies?

By the way, before I almost forgot, today is my OFFICIALLY 2 years annivesary for working in this Company!!! Yeahhhhhh, baby~ Never thought I could stay that long in this industry. But too bad, maybe there won’t be a chance for me to annouce my 3rd year anniversay of working there.

Thanks to my boss for teaching me and guiding me, not forgeting my manager who always backup for me, my colleague bla bla bla [Macam lah I want resign liao…LoL]

>If not mistaken, the last time I met my very best friend, Kai Wee a.k.a Chris was during Eunice Meow Ling’s convocation which held in KL last November of year 2009.


Kai Wee, me and Jenny in Pavilion. Damn miss them so much.


That’s me and Kai Wee


My bestie during my college life

Last few weeks, she reminded me that she will stopby at KK from Miri before took off to Taiwan on the next morning. She told me about that once she bought the ticket last year and she had to remind me again because of my STM sickness. ==lll

Something stupid and funny soon to be happen if she didn’t remind me.

DT: Hey, Kai Wee! Reach KK airport yet? I reached airport liao and waiting for you outside.
KW: Huh??!! I’m at home lah
DT: What??!! Your flight not reach KK from Miri at 1.30 pm meh?
KW: Abuh!! My flight is at 11.30 pm lah. The 1.30 pm flight is when I about to back from Taiwan!

You see, this will happens if she didn’t remind me regarding her flight schedule. Somemore, I had apply my half day leave just to fetch her but her flight is at night. Luckily she told me earlier or else, I will be like an idiot people waiting for her and I will be wasted my annual leave too. Lol~

In between, there is funny story happens with my leave form. After I knew about her flight schedule which did not crash with my working hour, immediately I cancelled my leave. I requested from HR department to return the leave form to me. Yes, she did that and I took it with me. Before I left the office, I couldn’t find my leave form. That is on Friday. So, on Monday morning, I searched for the leave form again and told my colleague who is in Tax department regarding my leave form had lost. Not until after lunch time, he told me that he knew where was my leave form. Guess where’s my leave form? Is it with my boss? Nope. Is it return back to HR dept? Nope. The answer is I accidentally passed my leave form to my client. So silly am I. Such a careless lady. Shame of me. Luckily, my client is a nice and kind lady that she even offer her office boss to return the leave form to me. The whole office laughed at me when they heard that.

Then at night, Kai Wee’s flight safely landed KK airport from Miri around 11.30 pm.

Kai Wee with her huge luggage

Brought her to Fook Yuen, Damai to have supper, in case scare she is hungry ooo… Morning at Damai, then night at Damai again. Really another Lol~ Actually, I sucks in thinking where to bring friends and relatives where to eat. So, simply bring her there to taste of Fook Yuen infamous homemade bread.
They call this as Roti Kaya. I prefer the original 1 because it is so soft.

Reached home almost 1 am and both of us talked talked until almost 2 am. She asked me to apply leave on the next morning but I refuse because I told her that I had no problem to work in the next morning even sleep for 3 or 4 hours.

Woke up around 3.30 am and send Kai Wee to airport at 4 am. After accompany her to wait for her friends to reach airport, I went back and the time is almost 5 am. Since there is few hours left, I decided to sleep back until 6.30 am. What Kai Wee said is true! I really can’t woke up at 6.30 and at the end, I decided to message HR dept telling that I am OFFICIALLY taking half day leave. Cancel the leave on Monday noon but replace with Tuesday morning. Lol.

Looks like I am not proactive compare as previous time. Even I sleep for less than 4 hours, I still manage to wake up and go to work but now I can’t. Seems like I’m getting old.

Anyway, even I managed to met Kai Wee for few hours only, but I’m glad and damn happy as this remind me of our time during in college life. I can’t wait for her to come back from Taiwan on 8th of March.

Oh ya! Since TTM knew I was at home, he went to my house to have lunch with me and my family before both of us went to office at 1pm. So coincidentally, he was in field audit today and his client went off early before lunch time. 🙂
