M.I.A, Where have i gone missing?

10 Nov

Hmm.. it’s been a while since i last updated my blog, when first started i promised my self not to neglect it because i easily get distracted, once i stop updating even for a lil’ while, it’s easily for me to lose interest , so for the past weeks i’ve been forcing my self to update it but due to  few obstacles (work+family+sickness+errands+laziness) i failed to do so, until now.

Here’s are some things i did during my missing not so in action periods.

I went back to Malacca for a short holiday, no i’m not a Malaccan i’m a pure K.L  town girl born and grew up in K.L but since i know Cary shes have been the bestest friend in the universe for me (like i have any alien category friends) we’re very close, i basically know her entire family from her mom, grand parents, uncle, aunties, cousins, even her neighbours and most of them know me too, cary is very blessed with a caring and loving Peranakan family, they were all very kind-hearted to this Malay girl, and i feel very lucky to know them, each times when i joined her relatives for makan session they will choose a halal joint just because they wanted me to join them, they are really sweet people, that’s why i mentioned “i went back to Malacca” instead of “i went to Malacca” the place have been like a home to me it doesn’t feel strange anymore whenever i’m there.

I came down Malacca specially to celebrate Nancy’s Kitchen 10 years Anniversary birthday bash, like i mentioned on my previous post, Aunty Nancy (Cary’s mum) is a proud owner of a well-known Peranakan restaurant in Malacca, i have a chance to make my short trip as a memorable ones by helping aunt Nancy to do some preparation and became the unofficial photographer for the function, i pretended to look busy snapping tons of photos, yes i’ll definitely update it on a specific post later.

It’s was such a wonderful event so many people coming to congratulate aunt Nancy for her achievements, there is some unknown people crashing the function for the free food and beer but aunt Nancy was really cool about it. Check out my new nyonya kebaya i was forced to buy this specifically for the function, but well it’s about time for me to own one, cost me whooping Rm180 just for the top.

i wouldn’t miss taking advantage of the cheap and incredibly delicious food in Malacca, so indulging and pampering my tummy is always my main mission in Malacca.

this is just some of the food that i have, peranakan kuehs from Baba charlie stall, halal dim sum fare in Renaissance Hotel, and chainese food fare from dragon deluxe.

I  gained 2 kg just from that trip, can a person really gained that much weight from all that eating trip in just 3 days?

oh before that trip i was forced by jenny to come up with a Halloween decoration at work and we made this gory looking mummy on just less that an hour using only limited office supplies, plastic, loads of news paper, and rolled tissue paper.

it looked more like a pocong than a mummy, huh i wished i have more time to add some ageing effect colouring to that mummy but that was good enough, thanx jenny for helping me.

Went back to my parents and spend time with my family, i had a great lunch at the new restaurant called Cozy Place located at Mangsa Maju,  great food with an english theme ambiance, very posh place to dine in. we opt for local dish really delicious you gotta try this place, thanx to my aunt Mak Tam for the treat.

Giordano was my fave brand during my teenage years, it was colourful, simple and affordable brand, well like i said “it was”, looking at their latest design campaign, does that smiley icon looked “cheer up” to you? wasn’t that supposed to be a “dead icon”, that lame design cost RM40!! seriously, so unoriginal ok!!

dead_smiley_sticker-p217560802465223378qjcl_400[1]This is a proper “dead” icon even if you put a smile on it doesn’t change the message of the icon, because X on the eye means R.I.P got it.

This is rather interesting and a  lil bit funny, me and cary looking for a place to chill and have a light bite, i spotted this place and very excited to try, hoping for a nice dessert or cakes, from afar it does looked like a cafe’ but man we got duped, nothing there is edible it’s all just an illusion to tricked us to go there.

Banks came out with more creative debt and flexible payments plans  now days, is it to benefit us or them? if we are not on debt, banks will call us to take one or more? are we working our asses off every month for ourself or for the bank? how much portions of our paycheck goes to pay debts than savings??? 30% 50% 80% sheesh!!! i really gotta cut back on my spending habit. Dear, bank seriously stop call me, i don’t want anymore debts with you guys, leave me alone, if i want debt i’ll look for you, ok!!

BTW i added that “pay forever” to be more dramatic, Maybank don’t sue me ok!!!

Torn love, between cats and furniture

9 Aug

PETS RUINED EVERYTHING, well almost everything, i always wanted my own pet when i was young, i once had a family pet, it was a Persian breed cat and we named him Dobi, i was so young as that time and didn’t know how to love  a pet, i always have love/hate relationship with him. I remembered i often bullied him, the worst thing i did (that i vaguely remembered) was i threw a small knife at him and he was bleed (just a small cut). Seriously i don’t know why??? i blamed my age and mind because i was 5 at that time. Although i did menn things to him, he always came back. Dobi never hurt me, he always accepted and love me, he was a very good pretty Persian cat.

He have long gone now and left us countless fond memories, we buried him at the backyard of our family home. Now as i grew older, i can say that I’m a changed person at least toward animals treatment (seriously i am). Like i said i always wanted  pet and to think again…hhmm… i can’t even take a good care of my self, how can i take a responsibility taking care of another life. So i put it off. Until one fateful day when i’m leaving my mum’s place heading back to mine, i saw a really little  (infant) kitten crying loudly. I do not have the heart to leave there, so…little…so…fragile, that’s when i decided to take it home with a plan taking care of  it until it big enough to let it go. Later my mum saw me leaving and gave a BIG surprise, there is actually 2 of them, a pair, a male and a female (motherless) they just looked so little and dirty, little kitten like this can’t be able to survive without their mother (the mother died, my mom buried her), they can’t even drink by them selves. So with the consent from my roomies (carol & shira) i took them in.

They’re 6 month old now, grew so fast, i’m not sure if they’re kittens anymore. From little helpless kittens they grew bigger everyday running and playing with each other around the house, climbing on every possible furniture, scratching and ruining my sofa. That’s the reason i said PET’S RUINED EVERYTHING come to think a bout it. pet’s are kind of a liability.

Don’t believe me, keep on reading.

1) They’re high maintenance- some can be very costly- food, vets, meds, supplements, grooming products, poo place, playthings and etc.  

2) Time consuming- pets needed to be trained, how to poo properly, how not to ruined your furniture, how to obey their master.

3) Even with constant training they will keep on ruining the furniture, tend to disobey you.

4) Dirty house – Since having the cats, my house is always a mess, no matter how often i cleaned it they’ll always find way to messed it up again.

5) Loosing my freedom (almost)- Having pet is just like having a child, you have to feed, play and clean them, in another word to keep the alive so you do have to be around most of the time and more if  i planned to go for a vacation or to be out of town i have to find somebody to take care of them, luckily i have a very reliable roomies or i can begged my mum to do it if this fails you have choice to send them to the pet hotel which could cost you a bomb.

So cute when they little, but when they claw grows and puberty hits everythings goes haywire

Don’t get me wrong i do love my cat’s deeply if arch and bub can read this they probably sulk, my point is having a pet is such a BIG responsibility, i could say that having them in my life has made me a better and a loving person. a BIG thank to CARY, SHIRA and her sis SHALIMAR, for lending a hand, taking care and raising them while i’m not around. this was supposed to be a temporary thing, but now looking at them growing happily, i don’t have the heart to leave them abandon on the street. Now, I love them dearly same as my roomies, we love them so much even though they spoiling the furniture, messing the house while archie loves sucking whichever part of our body he can find.

Everyday whenever we comes home from work, Arhie and Bubble never fail waiting for us by the door meowing eagerly like they welcoming us happily, this is one of the perks having pets when you treat them right they will be loyal to you and make your life extra special. I love to snuggle and softly wrestle with them, i don’t think i can give them up even though my mom always nags me to release them freely living dangerously outside the street (for the sake shelf life of my furniture).

To Bubb and Arch, we love you dearly, you will always be apart of our life, this is your home as much as ours.
