Gonna celebrate a day before my actual birthday with TTM because birthday is meant to be celebrate with my beloved family. Decided to have dinner at Suria Sabah but 2 options; either dining in Sushi Tei (2 of us are Japanese foods maniacs) or in Secret Recipe. Finally, he choosed Secret Recipe because of one and only reason, he never try have meal at there. Hahahaha…

Since I am the princess for that night, so I ordered whatever I want and he paid for the bill. Thank you, my dearest TTM. Everytime we went out for either lunch or dinner, we just ordered a drink and 1 main course. But this time around, we ordered from starter, main course until dessert.

Princess and the cake

Our night ends with movie. We watched “I Am Nunber Four” and you know what, it is my favourite English movie for the year 2011. It is better than Avatar. Wondering why many people think Avatar is better but I think “I Am Number Four” is more interesting and exciting. Not till, when I went back home and searching for the trailer from youtube to post in FB and telling all my friends that “I Am Number Four” is great movie, I noticed that the producer is Michael Bay. If you are Transformers fan, you will know Michael Bay as he is the director of that movie. No wonder most of the scene in I am No. 4 similar to Transformers. And now both of us impatient for the next sequel of Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon and also sequel of “I Am Number Four”

MOVIE FOR THE NIGHT

Not-to-miss movie for the year.

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.

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]

>

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
