Where should I start from? Okay, I woke up at exactly strike 12 pm. Not public holiday given by my Company neither or I purposely take leave just to celebrate this V day. Now it sounds more like I anti Valentine’s day. No, I’m not, okay. Just I am seriously damn sick and pay doctor visit on the night before Valentine’s day. So, the doctor ask me to have a good rest and giving me MC. Yeahooo, this means I no need go to work on Monday.

As usual, either on weekend or public holiday or when I’m not working like yesterday, I will directly go to my living room. That’s where my laptop is. But wait, I saw parcel from Pos Ekspress written my name on it. So, i turned to the back to see who is the sender. Quite surprising when it was send by my ji mui, Ling Liong Sung. Oh yeah, “he” version type of Ji Mui. Hehehehe… Never expecting anything from him by the way. So I immediately opened it to see what’s inside.

Recipient: Me 🙂


Sender: Ling Liong Sung; all the way from Sibu, Sarawak

So, what’s inside the parcel. Tadaaaaaaaaaaa…….

A cute teddy bear from Korea and earring from Russia


Love this one especially, Teddy bear with Korean costume

He went Korea last month from Russia before stopby Malaysia for CNY. For your information, he is currently working at Russia (which I ever post this during his farewell) and how sweet to receive such a wonderful Valentine’s gift from him during this day? Thanks a lot, my friend and I’m feeling pai seh (embrassing) at the same time for not giving him anything when I was travelling to Hong Kong, Japan or even Taiwan last year.

Since I woke up late, it’s time to eat lunch before eating medicine with empty stomach. How wonderful to know that every time I’m sick, my mom will cook porridge for me. Somemore, my favourite porridge; pork with egg. Good thing of being sick was you will be treat like a princess. 🙂 After finish the whole bowl, now it’s time for the worst part of being sick which was eating medicine. 😦 No one ever like to eat the medicine.

After eating the medicine, I feel so sleepy. Forget to mention that the doctor told me that after eating it, it will makes me sleepy. So, I continue to sleep after watching drama on Astro on Demand. Try my best to awake before end at episode 4. Sleep until 6pm, then I heard I had received sms. When checking my phone, I realised I had a missed call from TTM. OMG! My SMS ringtone is much louder than my caller ringtone. Should change it. And I’m totally forget I promised to have dinner with TTM on the night of Valentine’s day.

DT: Hello! Sorry for answer your phone. I was sleeping like a pig.
TTM: It’s OK! So how’s tonight?
DT: Tonight? Your mom cook?
TTM: Nope
DT: Erm, did you ask for tapao?
TTM: Nope

Looks like I can’t fong fei kei him or else he will be in deeply hungry for sure. So, immediately I rush to clean up myself before ready to have dinner with him. By the way, this is just a normal dinner like we have as usual. Both of us plan to have Japanese food as our dinner. Oh yeah, both of us like Japanese foods recently. We decided to have dinner at Sushi King, Citymall but too bad, it’s full house. From what I saw, it’s not crowded with couple but a group of family. Looks like Valentine’s day is not for couple to celebrate but family do so. I love that feeling.

Since Sushi King full house, so we decide to try our luck at another Japanese Restaurant; Recipe House at Damai. Seems like most of the Japanese Restaurant are full house including Hana Japanese Restaurant, Citymall. Looks like Japanese Restaurant is the best place for couple to celebrate their love during Valentine’s Day cause Paparich and Old Town are not full with crowd. So lucky for us that we able to get a seat in Recipe House. Or else, we don’t know where should we heading to.


Notice his T-shirt? Ninja which I bought for him from Japan 😉

After dinner, went to his house to watch movie. Before stepping to his house, there is fireworks again around his house area.


The fireworks is for the celebration of CNY or Valentine’s Day??

Then, I went to his room and guess what? I saw a colour cube box made out from paper on his table. I’m guessing that he is so damn free and got nothing to do, so try to make a cube box using colour paper. With surprise, he turns the cube colour box into THIS:


Origami Magic Cube Rose with my favourite colour on it, Blue

I was stunned for a while and totally speechless. Although it’s not a bonquet flower but this is sincerely from him. Like my friend said, love is not meant to be burn a hole in the pocket. It’s all about sincerely from the heart. Somemore, a real flower won’t last for long but this origami magic cube rose did. Hahaha…

Thanks to you, TTM! Although I’m sick, he managed to cheer my life with giving me a little tiny surprise.

There goes my superb duper long story on the day of V day 2011. It’s just a normal day which I’d been through everyday. Like I said in my previous blog, EVERYDAY IS VALENTINE’S DAY. So, how’s about yours?

>

14 February – It’s Valentine’s Day which lovely couple will celebrate it tomorrow. Most of the couples are busy doing preparation such as the guy side will busy selecting flowers for their love one and the gals side will busy browsing present for the guy. I guess that most of the elegant and classy restaurant is crowded with all the lovely couple and not forgetting the cinema too, it will be totally full house.
As for me, I’m really dilemma now. You know for a gal like me, a special day like this would mean a lot to me to celebrate with the love one. In fact, I also wish to receive a bouquet of flowers, being asked to a dinner and movie. But when think back, is it necessary to celebrate this special days when everyone had the same thought as mine and in the end, this makes all the restaurant and cinema full house?

Honestly to say, I wish to receive a bonquet flowers from him but in the mean time, buying flowers during Valentine’s Day could be consider the most silly things to do because it is extremely expensive. I would rather he buy flowers during my birthday as my birthday will be coming soon. =P


Would like to receive this bonquet of lilies from him *wink*wink*

Most of my friends are asking me “Diana, how are you going to celebrate V Day tomorrow with your dear?”. Erm…Honestly, I don’t know. Like I said, I just love to have it simple like going out for dinner (Japanese Restaurant will be my main choice) and watching movie. But I’m guarantee everywhere is crowded with lovely couple. Thanks to one of my college friend for telling me;

“EVERYDAY IS VALENTINE’S DAY!”

It’s true by the way. Why should I need to bother too much of what will he do for me and what will both of us heading to tomorrow? If I only wait for V’day for him to do all those for me, however the other day? Then, what’s the difference on the rest of the day?

Love is all about passion and care of 2 person. So, love is not only to celebrate on 14 February but every single day is LOVEDAY. There shouldn’t be a specific month to express our love, care and passion for our loved ones. As long as it should be sincerely through our heart all the time.

Lastly, I would like to stress here that I am not encourage couple not to celebrate V’day. Yeah, you still can enjoy ur lovely and wonderful moments with your beloved one tomorrow. This is just some sort of sharing and thoughts from my truly heart.

And finally, wishing everyone HAPPY LOVING DAY!

First, what will you see from the place where I spend more than 8 hours per day and 5 days per week?


Blue blue blue…

All in blue colour; calculator, mechanical pencil, pen knife, staple, ruler, paper punch and even computer mouse

For your information, blue is one my favourite colour.

Mostly, FOODSSSSSSSSSSSSS……

Foods are everywhere…

In the drawer

And even the A4 paper box

No wonder my diet plan never works. Keep taking unhealthy snack most of the time (-_-)

The year of 2010 is the year of tiger in chinese calender, which is also the year I was born. This year may seems to be a good year but too bad there are some not. Here is the recap of the my 2010 history:

It starts with a bad beginning of the year. My family and I lost the closest family member; which was my beloved grandfather. He is the one who closest to me as he stayed with my family and I since the day I was born. Maybe God loves him so much. I’m really miss him until now. He never scold or even beat me. The thing that I regret the most was I promised to buy a 3R photo album for him but I failed. Sorry, my dearest grandfather. I will always remember and love you. Both of us have similarities which are both of us love taking photo and camera. I bought camera more than handphone.

However, I met someone special and cheer my life since then. I start a new relationship and there is a cheecky story behind. It’s all regarding to a dream.

Then, it’s Chinese New Year and it falls on the same day as Valentine’s Day. Double Celebration! Due to the sad incidence, my family and I didn’t celebrate CNY as merrier compare to previous year. But thanks to TTM, it was my first ever Valentine’s celebration.

Surprised Valentine’s Bear from dearest TTM

The following month is the month of Pisces, and its my birthday. Early on the month, a really blast and surprised birthday from my *deariest*. I won’t forget that day at all. There is a video being recorded but too bad, the size of the video is too big.

Besides that, it’s my officially one year working in my current working place. Works start to overloaded. Oh no~~~

For my globe trotting, I went to 3 countries in a year.

1. Sweet Summer Getaway to Hong Kong and Macau with my beloved TTM and my collegemate, Vincent and his colleagues. Its my third visit to Hong Kong but first visit to Macau.

2. Adventurous Autumn Japan Trip with my university friend, Nicole. Thanks for the invitation. By the way, Japan had never in my 3 years travelling list as Japan is famous for the higher living expenses and most of the things is so so so expensive. But since got people invite me and it’s a one in a lifetime opportunity, I grab this chance and backpack with my university friend, Nicole. Most of them thought we are joining the travel agent but we are proudly to tell u, that we’re not. 2 brave little ladies are backpacking by their own. I’m really enjoying backpacking and this reflash back of my Europe trip.

3. Wonderful Winter Taiwan Trip. Celebrate this year X’mas with my family in Taiwan. Love Taiwan so much. That’s end of my year end trip of 2010

Last night, it’s New Year Eve. My boss invite us to his baby full month celebration in New Wong Kok Restaurant.

End my Year 2010 by went to TTM house to watch fireworks from his house. Thanks so much on the last day of 2010. Although it’s just simple but it means a lot to me. 🙂

A New Year
A New Start
A New Chapter
A New Beginning

Forget the Bad
Cherish the Good

Wish You All Happy New Year 2011

I saw a shoutout from my friend in facebook:

“Love is like a chewygum. It’s sweet at the beginning but tasteless at the end. But friendship is like a chocolate. It’s sweet till the end.”

I agree with this statement. In my real life, I love chewy gum by the way. Almost everyday, I will chew a least 2-3 tablets of chewygums in my mouth. However, I not really like chocolate as I have a worst nightmare ever after having chocolate. I easily get sick once I have chocolate.

Many things happen recently. Especially this year. The year of tiger, which is my own chinese calender year. Beginning of the year, the people I love the most in my entire life, left us. He always by my side since the day I born until that day he left us. He never scold me, beat me but he loves me more than other do. Everyone in my family know that I am his beloved granddaughter. Until now, I still can’t accept the fact and I still feel he still around me. However, I know that he want me to stay happy as always. My beloved grandfather, I miss you and I will always love you.

Anyway, he did not leave me alone by myself. I think he send something to me. Something special. Maybe its sound insane but for me, I know its something special from him. But recently, I start to feel like chewygum. I wish it could be like chocolate but maybe sometimes, its beyond my control. I had try my best to do everything I can but yet, what I can said is “HAIZ”. Tears keep coming out and sometimes I can’t find the reason why. Ever thought of giving up? YES, I did by the way. My heart is so fragile and I am the type of person who easily give up in everything including relationship. I don’t mean to complain but hardly to believe, I don’t dare to share my sadness with my family and friends and even including the main person.

Holy gosh! Tears is coming out again! Any solution to this? I still can’t find out yet. Maybe all I can do is just keep it inside my heart.

I came across one of my primary schoolmate’s blog and I’m absolutely fall in love with everything she done with her own hands. She made, decorated and customised any kinds of handicraft things especially greetings cards using all different kinds of materials. This reminds me of my favourite past time when I was in high school. I used to make some cards and bookmarks and sold to others during school time.

Suddenly, it reminds me of the presentation which I had during my Intensive English Course in KCC which was to design and present the card that we made for Valentine’s day.

The idea came out from nowhere


The design at the back of the card

A poem of love
The 2 versions of the card; Left hand side is for the presentation and the right hand side is which I sold to students

Now I kind of missed those times where I can design and decorate cards and sold to earn more income. But as years passed by, my creative and innovative thinking start to fade. Besides that, no available time for me to do so. So anyone interested to take order? =p

1st March 2010
This was the biggest surprise birthday celebration I ever had. Not only 1 surprise or even 2 but it was 3 surprises in a day. At first, I thought it was just a normal celebration which almost I had every year but it was totally out of my mind and I speechless for for few minutes. Tears almost falling out at that moment. Without thinking any further, I thought that this celebration is only between me and my best buddies but never thought they will invite someone special =p

Celebration at BB Cafe.

Thanks for the best ever birthday celebration

10th March 2010
Second cake from my Company; Chocolate Cheese Cake. Thumb up for this and I really damn love it. Cheese cake is not my choice but for this, I really can’t resist to take it

27th March 2010

At first, I thought that we gonna celebration Jon’s birthday as his birthday falls on the next day. But once, they took the cake, I saw my name. It was another surprise. They are celebrating 3 of us birthday; me, Jon and Steven. Really thanks to my college’s friend. W’ere having a delightful dinner at The Hut, Citymall.

>First and foremost, Merry Christmas to everybody especially to the bloggers! Wish you all have a wonderful and joyful celebration with your beloved family and friends. Well, it’s time for me to crap again. It’s been almost ages I never had the chance to crap. What had I been up to this few days?

P/S – This is lame and dull post. So if you feels irritating reading the story of my life, please don’t carry reading on =P

21st December 2009

4 days before Christmas…

In day time, everything seems normal. Working working, documents documents and clients clients. That’s my routine activities. At night having dinner with my 2 “gay” colleagues. Hahaha..If both of they found out, sure I unable to proceed on my onwards post. Just kidding. After dinner, shopping alone at City Mall due to last minute announcement of exchange gift with my colleagues on the next day. Too bad.. This day seems is not my day. I’m not in the mood as something happens. The feelings and emotions that I thought had gone away came back again in a sudden.

But thanks to my lovely and funny collegemate, hostelmate and also housemate in UK, call up for yam cha. Yeah, I damn love yam cha. Everytime when I’m not in the mood, he always there for me. Really thanks to you, Tsun Hin aka Vincent. We were non-stop talking regarding our working environment. He talks his and I talked mine. Feelings so envy of his career but mine also not that bad at all.

22nd December 2009
3 days before Christmas…

Early morning, I’m quite worry regarding my 6 days annual leave as I am the only staff who haven’t being approved by my boss. Is it she not satisfied with my performance or what? Will my annual leave being forfeited? I don’t wish these to be happen. Indeed, I still not in the mood. I’m really having a bad hair day by the way. But everything going well around 4.30pm when my boss told me that she had approved my 6 days annual leave. Besides that, I’m also successfully claimable of my 3 days study leave for my previous attempt during June sitting. Yeah! Feeling relief at last.

In the night, it’s movie time. Watched The Bodyguard & Assassins with my “Wrong Hole Gang” at 1 Borneo. Thanks guys for cheers my day! It’s one of the sadness and pityful movie I had ever watched. I cried non-stop at the climate of the story.

23rd December 2009

2 days before Christmas…
Today is my first day on leave. But I’m still going back to my office as we are having luncheon as well as exchange gift. Actually, I’m back to work like normal day. Sounds insane right? Well, I had to complete and finish all my tasks before I am officially on leave. During night time, having a catch up moments with my best buddy. Yeah, Matt is back from Melaka! A lil ladies talk at Frenz cafe. It’s feels great to meet up with my best buddy from high school.

24th December 2009

Christmas eve today. Everything going well until I play a game. I changed some of my friends’ plan. Sounds like I a drama queen, right? Sorry guys but I’m not in the that mood. But everything also not going well as what I planned. That time, I feels like I’m riding a roller coaster. But thanks God, everything is back to normal.

Yup, at night dinner with my “TTM”. Thanks for the dinner although at first both of us plan to eat at Upperstar or Brass Monkey but ends up eat at small but famous noodle cafe shop. After that, I moved on the next plan which was my favourite. Yes, it is time for movie again. This time around with my college mate at 1B once again but another movie which was Sherlock Holmes. I’m getting more and more impress with Robert Downey Jr.’s acting. After the Iron Man, he never failed to act perfectly in every movie; Tropic Thunder especially. I just can’t wait for Iron Man 2 to be on screen next year.

25th December 2009
It’s Christmas. Where did I do the countdown? Inside the car…Sounds funny? I know you guys out there must be laughing now. But I really having a wonderful and sweet feelings by the way.

In the day time, shopping at Centre Point with my family but ends up hanging out with my 2 best buddies, Shing Wei and Pat Foo. Both of them planned to watch Alvin but unfortunately it’s full house. So, we went to having a lady talk again at Hong Kong Restaurant, Warisan Square.

In the night, having dinner again with my “TTM” again at Nagasaki. Yes, our Christmas dinner! It’s my first time experience having dinner at there. However, I still prefer Wagamama if for choices of bento. Then continue catch up with my colleague, Lee Hung at Ren Ai and watching movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks 2. They are totally adorable and awesome.

26th December 2009

A day after Christmas…

Gathering with my collegemates at K Box, Waterfront to celebrate Phui Loo aka Aloe Vera birthday who falls on that day and also early celebration of Apple’s birthday who falls on 31 December.

It’s feels like the time we were having fun in hostel

At nite, it’s “Ladies Night”. Four of us; Wawa, Shing Wei and Pat Foo, who were my high school best buddies as I mentioned before having dinner and movie together at 1 Borneo. It’s not complete picture without Matt and Linda. Hopefully we can meet up during next year Chinese New Year. After the dinner, we watched Jay’s movie; “The Treasure Hunter”.

27th December 2009

Second days after Christmas

Let’s us skip the daytime story coz I’m in bad mood again! Recently, my emo keep on and off. I’m easily get angry without knowing why. But thanks to “TTM” for cheering up my day. I’m spend almost half of my day in Sutera. I’m feel relax everytime I at there.

Blue sea, blue skies. Took it when chatting with him. Damn love this pic

At night, dinner time with “TTM” where he brought me to have chicken chop. Later, went to meet my best buddies, Wawa and Shing Wei at Lintas. Fuh!!! Almost everynite, 2 outings at 1 night.

Exactly 1 week non-stop outings with my friends. Well, it’s really tiring but I really having a wonderful time with them. Indeed, it was month of celebration and new year 2010 is coming soon. Hardly wait to celebrate this coming holiday.

Once again, may your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, laughter and goodwill. And may the year ahead be full of contentment and joy. Have yourself a very little Christmas.

Finally, the day that I’d been waiting had arrived. My ACCA exam day! Can’t wait to end at 6.15 pm and from there onwards, I’m back to my normal life. Working, hanging out with friends, and etc. I’m so excited that my miserable life will be ends soon but at the same time, quite stress, tension and breathless when thinking will I able to answer with confidence and smoothly.

“Best of luck and success to myself and to all my friends who are attempting ACCA papers”
Feel asleep when everytime seeing the notes and books…

Current PM: I had try my best to avoid but seems that I had been addicted too much

>

Tick tock tick tock. Had you ever heard Madonna’s Hung Up? The song start with “Time goes by so slowly” and its repeat for many times which I like to stress here that I’m not agree with it. Without realising it, now is the middle of September and 3 months plus to go, we will enter to the new year again. I had been wasting most of the precious time doing those silly and nonsense things. Sleep tv sleep tv..That’s what my routine activities after back from work.

In the mean time, myself have 2 months to go for my worst nightmare again. ACCA exam!!! And yet, my study mood still in turn off mode. No mood at all. Many things to consider. Study? Career? Health? Relationship? Friendship? Future?

Anyway, I still remember on this day but year ago, I was in Paris. Damn miss that place and I wish I can go there again.


One Night in Paris
