Durian cheesecake is the BOMB!!

Hi all, as promised. The durian cheesecake was delivered to the concourse of IBM Towers after my working hours (I don't work in IBM... just in case you're wondering =p). Getting into my mum's Persona, within seconds, it was filled with the pungent durian smell.

Everybody say, "ewwwww!!!".

Anyways, once I reached home, I put it in the fridge to chill. After my mum's simple but yummy fried spaghetti with mince pork and vege that was served for dinner, my mum, sis, bro and I had our fillings of DURIAN CHEESECAKE from Cheese Tease!!

Simple but yummy fried spaghetti!!

The three of them really liked the durian cheesecake! In fact, they preferred it over the Kookies and Kreme. However, I beg to differ! I still prefer the Kookies and Kream over the Durian Cheesecake. Then again, I am biased. After all, Kookies and Kream is aptly named after me.. a Kooky gal! Ok. enough corniness already!

The guinea pigs (ie mum, sis and bro) raved about how the durian cheesecake tastes very durianish and yet with some cheese taste. DUH!! It's a cheesecake! They like the fact that it's not super sweet, too. The cake texture is smooth and my brother kept repeating that it tastes as if you're having durians and not a cake. They actually kept popping pieces after pieces into their mouth.

I, bravely cut a really tiny slice to try. After all, what is a review if one does not taste the food one is reviewing about??!! I made a cup of Ribena ice on standby and soldiered on, gulping a piece down. It was quite alright, actually. Not as bad as I had imagined. However, it has not won me over totally to the the dark side.. I mean, the durian side! =p

I immediately went to my fridge and took out the remaining 3 slices of yesterday's Kookies and Kream, finished them and felt guilty for indulging!! How to lose weight like that??!!

Presentation: 4/5 (Simple and yet classic, "need to add a bit more almond to the sides" my sister quipped. I think strawberries on the top as per Cheese Tease's 1.5kg cake looked cuter)

Taste: 4/5 (Yummy according to my family! They actually had no complains unlike the K&K)

Pricing: 4/5 (RM40 for that size, plus, for a cheesecake, is pretty much alright.)

I bought the 800gm cake but if you fancy a larger cake, don't fret, Cheese Tease offers 1.5kg durian cheesecake at RM69 but now it's going at promotion of RM58.

So, people, if you guys are interested to know how a durian cheesecake tastes like or someone's birthday is coming up or you just want to indulge in a little guilty pleasure... Head on to Cheese Tease and order away!!

Don't hesitate and waste anymore time... YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT!!

Yummy cheesecake...

My friend and her partner recently started out their durian cheesecake venture and being her friend, of course must five some support, right??

Few weeks back, she brought some to office for tasting and had pretty good feedback on her yummilicious cake. So, despite not being a durian fan whatsoever, I went ahead and ordered one! She, however decided to surprise me with a different cheesecake as I was suggesting she could attempt making strawberry cheesecake or oreo cheesecake and even try a hand at baking Tiramisu!!!

So, I excitedly rushed over to her place after dinner today for my surprise cake.


The outside.

Overview of cookies and cream cheesecake.

Does look mouth watering, eh?

In smaller pieces...

My family and I had our helping to 2/3 of the cake and I am bringing a few pieces to office tomorrow for my colleagues to have a try.

The cake is not too sweet (which is good for those who don't have a super sweet tooth!) nor is it too cheesy. Some people would prefer it to be cheesier like my family. However, I think there are those who don't like too rich a cheesecake. At the end of the day, it's a matter of preference. Ooooh.. yeah.. one more thing to gush about, I love the cookie bits at the bottom of the cake!

The cake weighs at 800gms and is going at a price of RM35. I think that it would make a nice birthday cake for a small party say, about 10-15 people. Although only a petite piece per person. Then again, most girls ALWAYS want a smaller piece with the exception of me. Making me feel like a hippopotamus for wanting a generous slice! Bleh.

Presentation: 4/5 (Simple and yet classic, just lessen some cookie bits on the top)

Taste: 4/5 (Yummy! but would prefer a richer cheesy taste)

Pricing: 4/5 (RM35 for that size, plus, a cheesecake, is pretty much reasonable.)

Anyway, I can't wait for the durian cheesecake tomorrow!! So, stay tune for the next review!

By the way, check out her blog, CHEESE TEASE (on the left side of this blog underInteresting Sites) for more information.

Ps: I am not getting paid for this review nor am I receiving any commission. It is my humble opinion and of the other guinea pigs which was my mum, sister and brother! Ordinary people like you and me.

Annoying ticks and antics of a family....

I don't see why my family has to talk the way that we do. Sometimes, it makes me wonder if other families are like that, too?

No.1 favourite is to Yell or talk REALLY loudly.
It's annoying and it doesn't make me feel like listening to whatever is being yelled about. Would you like it if someone constantly yells at you? Talking to you rudely as if you're not worth their time and patience? Talking condescendingly with that annoying "rolling eye" look as if you're just bugging them?

No.2 is Lecturing, Nagging and Scolding.
I am not a small child anymore. Lecturing and Nagging and scolding isn't effective as when I was a little girl and had NO choice in my say but to listen! =p

No. 3 would be the "i-ignore-you" silent treatment.
Gosh. Are the words from one's mouth worth gold? Sometimes, when I ask a question and obviously expecting an answer and I wait but... *SILENCE* Seriously, what the *toot*??!!! Such a big deal to answer? Even if perhaps I did not hear the answer and repeat the question, just answer la!

Somehow, it seems that we tend to react first. It really kills my mood when you guys yell, talk impatiently/rudely or ignore me. We all have our ups and downs but please be considerate and not take it out on me!

People say that friends are family that you get to choose. However, at least with family, no matter how much you scream or yell or piss each other off, at the end of the day, you're still a family. Despite irritations and annoying habits and all, I believe that we do love each other... in our own, funny way.

Now, if only we can put it more into actions. After all, action DOES speak louder than words!

Michael Jackson and Aaron Kwok's nudity

"You only realise the value of something when you no longer have it,
and by then, it is too late."

Everyone seems to be blogging or talking or FB-ing about Michael Jackson's death. Most of the celebrity bloggers such as Perez Hilton, Pink is the new blog, Timothy Tiah, Pink Pau, Kennysia, Jojo Struys and even Nuffnang regular bloggers such as Pamsong, Nicholas, Evon, Emeryn, Mike Yip to name a few have even written about him or at least his works and something related to him. Even radio stations were playing his songs ALL day long.

No offense to all you hardcore MJ fans but I just don't feel affected by his demise, not even by a bit. True, he was the King of Pop and had lots of good songs. He even had a lot of troubles and worries and stress like us ordinary people. Well, except the pedophile part.

But still, so what? Seriously. Even so that I love Backstreet Boys, 98degrees or even Josh Groban, I wouldn't mourn over their deaths. Once again, seriously?

It's really sad how someone can make such drastic changes that probably left a scarring permanent damage on oneself and to live with it??



Why is it that we tend to only appreciate or acknowledge a person when they die?

Look at the older days famous composers such as Mozart and Beethoven. They all died as poor men. Famous Bach's music was unpopular for 100 years!! But now, their music is renown throughout the world, played in many versions and renditions and even incorporated into movies etc!

Despite my lack of emotional state regarding MJ's death, I sincerely hope that he does finally rest in peace. But I can't help but wonder where did he ended up.

Up with the heavenly angels and eternal happiness?


Down to the hot, burning abyss forever??

ps: When I was reading Kennysia's blog.. I came by the below pic... *haha* Only Kennysia would write such a post and linked such a thing... =p

UPDATE @ 27/6/2009 1:25am
I just got off the phone with my bf who is ALL the way in the land of sleepy koalas and punching kangaroos!!

I was saying, "Seriously, what is the big deal with MJ's death??!!" and yada yada yada... Thinking that he would agree with me.

-_- Mana tau, tak support me.

My bf, the traitor treacherously said, "I have always wanted to see him make his comeback and so, was happy with the news that his concert was sold out! But probably the strain of the concert caused him to suffer a heart attack."

"Then again, maybe he's not dead. You know MJ lah... weird fella. Or who knows? it's just a gimmick?", he quipped.

Bah. Another MJ fan! =p Just don't play his songs at my wedding or start moonwalking during the ceremony, mister!!

I missed my date with Megan Fox

While I sit here at home, surfing the net and blogging, 80% or probably 90% of my colleagues are at 1u's GSC watching Transformers 2. Yup, without me! It's considered somewhat as a department outing. You see, I didn't really asked around who was going for the movie few weeks back and just informed my department secretary that I wouldn't be going.

Pic taken from here.

Right after that, my "closer" colleagues one by one mentioned that they were going for the free movie. Since it's free PLUS it's TRANSFORMERS!!! But by then, it was too late for me to change my vote. Then again, if there were people who really wanted me to go for it, they could have tried to get for me the tickets. That is what I would have done for a friend. Anyhow, almost towards the end of today, a manager sent out an email saying that he couldn't make it for the movie and thus, a free, available ticket. Somehow, I just didn't have the mood anymore.

Lately, I feel rather antisocial when it comes to office related matters. I feel invisible at times and just another fish in the sea.
Somehow withdrawing into my shell.A lot has been happening this past 1 year to me and it's not something I can really go around telling people in the office unless you're really that close to them to the point of being friends than just acquaintances. And sometimes, you may regard ie Colleague A as your bestie or a good friend but in reality, he/she just views you only as a colleague.

My company used to have 8 audit departments but since last year, we've merged to 4 as part of our move to the new office in PJ from Damansara Heights, KL. The merger was so that a stronger department (which was mine) could help out the "weaker" department, by integrating and balancing out the long working hours and shitty portfolios. Hence, my department (which once upon a time, was
deemed as the golden department whereby everyone wanted to come in to) had to adapt to a new culture, the weaker department's culture.
pic taken from here.

Most of us felt that instead of our stronger department being the dominant one (since we had a better working environment with better portfolios), we were somewhat taken over by the weaker department. Mergers and integration are always a messy business if not handled with care. Even more so if management do not anticipate and cover
all areas of potential disgruntlement or at least rectify when it does arises.

To cut a looooong story short, sometimes, you can have your ideals, your opinions and your beliefs but when you come into the working world, it is "Welcome to reality". You have to follow what your bosses wants and says.
Your daddy and mummy no longer can hold your hands and be there to bail you out especially when the going gets tough. What you sow, you will really reap. If you step on someone's toes, be prepared to face the consequences.

Then again, we seem to see a lot of new graduate joiners resigning even just after 1 month of working citing that, "This job is not to my liking" or "I don't want to work the long hours" and so on and so forth. Honestly speaking, this was never what I wanted to do. In my first year itself, I hated it. I did not like my job, the hours, my life and I still don't!

Instead of the luxury of being borne with a silver spoon in my mouth, to chase my dreams or at least pursue a course of my own interest, I had to be practical. That's why I took up an accounting course and now, in audit line. I had to be a realist that whether I like it or not, I had a financial obligation to my family that lots of people don't seem to have.

I have to constantly remind myself, "Hey, look here, mum has done so much for me already and it's time I do my part. Stick it out for 3 years. Get my CPA. My work experience, then move out." Even if it feels like some people aren't pulling their weight, I just have to keep pressing on.
pic taken from here.

My general self development has actually been spiraling downhill these past 2 years. But seriously, enough is ENOUGH! I am already reaching quarter of a century. I don't want to still be living with regrets when I am 30years old.

Hence, I am trying to push out of my cocoon by not dwelling so much on the negative and instead, to focus more on good stuff in order to break free into a beautiful butterfly. It's not an easy journey. Let me tell you this, dwelling on pessimistic thoughts can be emotionally draining and exhausting. Especially when you feel you're on this journey alone. But if He is there for me, walking along beside me, this is a journey that will be the ultimate adventure of my life.

And I hope you, too will also have Him to guide you through the journey of your life!

Puppy Flushed Down Toilet prompts rescue operation

As per Jupjunz...

A PUPPY in Britain had a lucky escape after a four-year-old boy accidentally flushed it down the toilet when he was trying to wash it, the Daily Mirror reports.

The cocker spaniel pup's young owner, Daniel Blair, thought the puppy needed a wash after it got muddy playing in the garden, so he put it in the toilet and flushed it.

But his plan went disastrously wrong when the animal was swept away and became trapped in a waste pipe for nearly four hours.

Firefighters and animal welfare officers could not reach it, so Daniel's mother eventually called a plumber, who found the dog lying upside down in a pipe about 20 metres away from their house in Northolt, west London.

The dog - which has been named Dyno after the plumbing firm which rescued it - is now safe and well and back with the family.

Daniel has apologised, blaming his twin brother for getting the dog dirty and saying: "I had to give him a wash. I'm so, so sorry. I won't do it again."

How on earth did such a thing remotely even occured??

Poor cocker spaniel.

Taylor Swift's love story MEETs Coldplay's Viva La Vida

"Some people are just talented. Gifted. Naturally."

Remember how I have mentioned before that my brother always likes to play music off his Nokia E71 when he's around me?? Well, he did it again. As we were on our way home after him fetching me from office, amidst the slow traffic, one of the songs playing off his handphone was "I've got rhythm" and I just got so hooked on to it and kept playing the beginning part over and over. The tune was light, chirpy and the variations were just awesome!


I am now surfing the net and my brother's lying on my bed, we started "battle of the music" with me playing songs on my laptop and with him playing youtube songs and videos off his canggih handphone. Then, he intro-ed me this guy, Jon Schmidt and his friend's version of Love Story (which was made famous by Taylor Swift) meets Viva La Vida (by Coldplay).

The clip below shows Jon playing the piano accompanied by his friend, Steven on the cello. There's only one word to describe their version, billiant!

My brother was browsing through youtube videos on his handphone when he said, "Must look for more annoying songs."

And I was like, "For what?".

"To irritate your mother with!!" he cheekily replied.

When you're desperate during or nearing exams...

This post goes out to Laikepo.

On 15 Jun 09, 14:17 in my c box (on the left hand side of this blog), he left this comment...

laikepo: When you desperate during exams, what will you do?

Firstly, if you're talking about DURING exam right when you're ACTUALLY sitting for it, DON'T you dare to attempt peeping at people's answers!! It's not worth it to copy people's answers and compromising your integrity in the process. Seriously, I would rather fail than cheat. Then again, that's just me.

However, if you're talking about preparation for the exam and you get desperate, it's probably due to several reasons.

1) Well, we tend to experience panic attacks when we're not ready due to:
- Procrastination
How so?? by studying/doing work at the very last minute or rather at the 11th hour!
- Plain laziness to study
Waiting for the answers to pop up in one's dreams.. well, DREAM ON!

2) You feel like you're running out of time and you STILL have SO much more to study! and with so little time and so much to study, you start to panic! and when you start to panic, everything that you actually studied flies out the window!

3) Sometimes, one does not procrastinate nor are they lazy. It's just so that not EVERYONE is naturally smart. Hence, difficulty to grasp what they're studying. And when you DON'T understand what you're reading, it's harder to retain it in your memory posing a problem in answering questions.

There are so many other possible scenarios that the three stated above. Tell me more if you can think of any. So, when one is in either of the dilemma mentioned above, what can we possibly do to ensure it doesn't sabotage us in our exams??

1) Make sure you do ample studying ahead of time by:
- NOT procrastinating
Run through your notes at least once BEFORE and another time AFTER every lecture and tutorials. If not, make sure you start studies at least a month before finals!!
- Be hardworking
After all, "NO PAIN, NO GAIN!" In life, if you want something so badly, you got to work for it. Nothing comes easy. Ever!

2) TELL your brain to STOP panicking!! Calm yourself down by taking a couple of deep breathes. Your mind is seriously a very powerful tool. We are so easily brainwashed and influenced by advertisements (for example clothings, electronic gadgets like cameras and handphones, food & beverages like Mc Donald's and KFC), media such as movies, tv series, news, MTV, radio programmes and even our friends!

Sometimes, you may think it's not so cool to do something or that something doesn't taste or looks that great. However, if majority think otherwise, you probably would just revise your opinion to follow everyone else! and don't bother denying it... tsk tsk.

So, tell yourself to STOP panicking, to FOCUS and that finally, YOU CAN DO IT! Just keep saying it in your mind or outloud. And you have to believe in what you say if not it won't be effective.

3) Don't despair if you fall in the category of not so smart people. Make it a point to ask for help. Don't shy away from seeking guidance/help! and don't belittle yourself or looking down at yourself. Of course, it also helps if one does not judge oneself too harshly. Be realistic when you set your goals may it be studies or just about anything.

If the person you approach for help doesn't seem to want to help. Don't give up. Ask another person may it be your lecturer, your friend, school/college/uni/work mate. Keep asking and you'll definitely meet someone with a heart of gold who would lend a helping hand. This, I speak from experience.

So, this is my advise that I have for you, Laikepo and anyone else who may think it's relevant. Hope it is helpful and useful. Feel free to share any comments/opinions. =)

Pooped out... Gym Part 3

Last week, I had a blast in gym or rather the Dance Revolution class. I could follow the steps and I felt alive, refreshed, happy after the work out. Today, during the dance class itself, I was literally half dead. My right side tummy hurt, was out of breathe, my limbs felt achish, flulike symptoms. The dancing bunny instructor taught new steps and at a faster pace than usual.

After the class, or rather 15 minutes before the end of class, I was pooped and super drained. But kept pushing on, seeing this one super slim girl dance effortlessly, my inspiration. She was wearing midriff top and you can see her FLAT tummy. So annoying. Bleh.

Anyways, I had so much I wanted to blog but now that it's sooo late, everything seems to have flown out the window. I'll probably update tomorrow if there's more to add.

Okies. I am off to bed. Tomorrow is another day. Everyday, I have Monday blues.

Once upon a time

The times we used to play
I long for them
and I'll cherish them
Smashing lights and paper boats in the rain
chatting instead of studying.

Friendship is like a relationship
It takes two to tango
It goes both ways
One reaches out
and the other, should
Grab on for dear life.

Flirtations, puppy love
those were the days
where things seemed complicated
but in comparison to the present
It pales in comparison.

Laughter and friendship
Those were the days
Getting pissed when you started smoking
Upset when we drifted
Moving on to new sights, new paths
New journeys

Trust and faith
hand in hand
In abundance I had
Now in vain
lost in pain

Left with
what ifs and if onlys
To turn back time
Change my mind
Beliefs and dreams
fade away

OMG. This is too good that I have to share it with you guys!!

It's about a flight attendant who couldn't do the normal typical announcements well, the normal way. He rapped instead and it's just so-freaking-awesome. It'll be cool to ever experience something like that first hand!!


Imagine Airasia flight attendant doing this...

This is flight 372 on SWA
The flight attendants on board serving you today
Teresa in the middle, David in the back,
My name is David and Im here to tell you that,
Shortly after takeoff, first things first
There's soft drinks and coffee to quench your thirst
But if you want another kind of drink, then just holler
Alcoholic beverages will be 4 dollars
If a monster energy drink is your plan
That'll be 3 dollars and you get the whole can
We wont take your cash, You gotta pay with plastic
If you have a coupon then that's fantastic
We know you're ready to get to new places
Open up the bench, put away your suitcases
Carry on items go under the seat
In front of you so none of you have things by your feet
If you have a seat on a row with an exit
Were gonna talk to you, so you might as well expect it
You gotta help evacuate in case we need you
If you don't wanna then were gonna reseat you
Before we leave, our advice is
Put away your electronic devices
Fasten your seatbelt, then put your trays up
Press the button to make the seatback raise up
Sit back relax have a good time
Its almost time to go, so I'm done with the rhyme
Thank you for the fact that I wasn't ignored
This is Southwest Airlines, welcome aboard

Part of her life

She just cannot fathom how such a person can be. A person who may very well be a part of who she is. The possibility that she could very well be, too. For a person to spew such hateful words with such blatant disregard. Nary a thought for anyone's feelings. Repeating over and over callously those contemptuous words as part of a conversation, with glee it seems, at times. Not seeing, not caring, the very effect his words imprinted in their minds.

She will not take sides. If this is how marriage is like, she wants no part of it. How can two join, become one and yet be world's apart? How can you say, "I do" and mock those vows, the rest of your lives and be cruel towards your supposed one true love?

Love is really blind. Truly blind.

Opposites attract but at the detriment of those surrounding them. Those who are the consequences of such a union who will then bear the consequences of being the results of such consequence.

What makes a person be malicious and mean to a person they had vowed before God to love and cherish, the rest of their days? What makes a person listen but not hear what she says? Is it a result of all those years of disappointments, hurt and pain? Can there never be a turning back? A turning point?

She feels bewildered. Lost. Confused. Aimless. The people she thought who was supposed to be there, to mean something, to look to, for advise, for guidance have appear to forsake her. Drowning in their own murky world of dark days leaving her to fend for herself. Thinking that she is strong. Thinking that she will survive. But how can she, when she has no pillar of strength? No support to a shaky foundation...

In times of despair, she turns to the one. But the one she seeks remains silent to her.

Perhaps, it is time for her to bear the consequences for the wrongs that she has done. Maybe this is the consequences to all those moments of weakness. To be punished for the wrongs that were done.

Megan Fox, a MAN???!!!

OMG. I bumped into this dude's blog and apparently it seems that Megan Fox is a MAN!! Can you believe that? If you don't know who she is, she's one of the lead cast in Transformers. The sizzling hot babe. Most guys fantasy??

It is true at certain angles and pictures, she does rather look like a tranny as mentioned by Weekly World News.com.

Does she look like a guy to you?? Will you still date her after knowing that she used to be a guy?? So many guys hearts are being broken at this news, eh?

Sweating it out at true fitness... Gym, part 2

I just got back from gym about half an hour ago. GOSH. I felt really good after today's Dance Revolution class. We really worked it man. I was literally sweating like a pig! Not that I know how pigs look like when they sweat!

and it felt really good to know the steps and be able to execute them without difficulty... or rather ineptly.

Anyways, as part of my improve-my-looks process, I joined True Fitness, Jaya 33 branch for the month of June due to the promotion that they were offering. It was a pretty good deal I would say plus the fact that I am not so busy at work. Hence, I get to leave office early to make it to gym. I am ! proud of myself so far for the efforts that I have made. Now, if only I would see a difference

The offer includes:
- RM99 a month (excluding 5% tax)
- 4 spa back massages (which i have yet to go for!)
- 4 personal training sessions (need to start booking for this)
- 4 yoga sessions (i think)
- unlimited access to all it's 11 branches (if not mistaken)

So far, for this month, I've been for Meei's Dance Revolution on Mondays (my 3rd class with her today), MTV Jam with Lily on Tuesdays (it's interesting but I hardly sweat!) and Funky Line with Bernard just last Thursday (this one, i was SUPER confused. Felt more like I was excercising my eyes then my body!).

Meei can be rather naggy as she keeps pushing us to pump it out, to just groove with the music and not blindly do the steps. Some ppl might not be able to stand her but I am alright with it. I think I enjoy her classes the most cause I seem to be able to grasp the steps and I tend to sweat A LOT after that!! She doesn't look that young wup close. However, she has the energy of an energiser bunny that i mentioned before over here where she just bounces around the room while we struggle to keep pace.

Lily is sweet and patient. Bernard's rather fast including the speed he talks!

Before you sign up with True Fitness, I suggest you Google them, check them out at forums and make sure you read the agreement, stated terms and conditions before signing. My plan was only a one off for a month plan. The normal one requires you to be bonded. Make sure you ask the consultant everything clearly and bear in mind, sometimes what they say may not be true.

This person commented that True Fitness sucks!and another was annoyed by no classes which was reported in Malay Mail.

The consultant that I dealt with kept saying that the offer he explained was only valid for a short time and my friend and I had to make a fast decision on whether we wanted to join. I checked out forums and the deal that he kononnya offered us, was the same from 2007!! Not only that, later on, trying to get me to join, he says they have another offer as I mentioned my budget is only RM100 and below. It's a long story.

Besides that, comparing to other gyms ie Fitness First, you have to bring your own locker padlock. There's no other drink except water. In Fitness First, they have soft drinks and even coffee!

For a conservative and modest person, I was rather dismayed to discover that True Fitness' shower cubicle has no door! Instead, they use some clothe as a curtain door. Gee...

Oh well. Most girls seem to be rather comfortable stripping in the locker room itself. Even walking around in their bras and panties. And 80% of them are HALF my size!! Skinny freaks! *hehe* Makes me look obese in comparison ok!! =p

I have yet to see someone walk around semi nude though! Hopefully my comments about lingerie clad girls walking around the locker room won't encourage peeping toms!!

If only I looked like that at the gym. Period.

Mad by Neyo

I heard this song on the radio like ancient years ago and liked it a lot!! However, I didn't know the name of the song and who sang it. I kept asking if anyone knew a song with the words "nothing.. nothing" but no one did.

And everytime, it plays on the radio, I tell myself, I'll remember the key words to go back home and google it and I always reached home only to find that I had forgotten those key phrases!

Bengang betul.

And today, I finally did... THANKS to my brother's help!!

Artist: Ne-Yo
Album: Year of the Gentleman (2008)
Song: Mad

Lyrics :

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh...
Oh oh oh...

[Verse 1]

She's starin' at me,
I'm sittin', wonderin' what she's thinkin'.
Nobody's talkin',
'Cause talkin' just turns into screamin'.
And now is I'm yellin' over her,
She's yellin' over me.
All that that means
Is neither of us is listening,
(And what's even worse).
That we don't even remember why were fighting.

So both of us are mad for...


(Fighting for).
(Crying for).
But we won't let it go for
(No not for)
This should be nothin' to a love like what we got.
Ohhh, baby...

I know sometimes
It's gonna rain...
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(Cant sleep through the pain).


Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Ohhh no no no...

[Verse 2]

And it gets me upset, girl
When you're constantly accusing.
(Askin' questions like you've already known).
We're fighting this war, baby
When both of us are losing.
(This ain't the way that love is supposed to go).

[What happened to workin' it out].
We've falled into this place
Where you ain't backin' down
And I ain't backin' down.

So what the hell do we do now...
It's all for...


(Fighting for).
(Crying for).
But we won't let it go for
(No not for)
This should be nothin' to a love like what we got.
Ohhh, baby...

I know sometimes
It's gonna rain...
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(Cant sleep through the pain).


Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Ohhh no no no...


Oh baby this love ain't gonna be perfect,
(Perfect, perfect, oh oh).
And just how good it's gonna be.
We can't fuss and we can't fight
Long as everything alright between us
Before we go to sleep.

Baby, we're gonna be happy.

I know sometimes
It's gonna rain...
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(Cant sleep through the pain).


Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Ohhh no no no...

Impending father's day

Father's day is around the corner. What have you decided to do for your dad? Do you even know when is it???

Yesterday, at Uptown in a camera shop, a lady at the counter asked my friend and I, "Excuse me ar, when is father's day?" And a smart me quipped, "should be tomorrow." meaning today, Sunday!

My friend looked at me dubiously "Are you sure it's tomorrow? Cos I think it's next week as everywhere I've gone, shops are announcing father's day on 21st or is it 3rd week of June??!!"

"Well, I am not too sure. Thought it was the second week of June." I felt rather mortified not knowing when was father's day!


Anyways, am thinking what to get my dad. Most probably take him out for dinner somewhere if he's around.

Hailam kopithiam @ SS2

In a week, I went twice to SS2's Hailam Kopithiam! Before this, I had been there once and if my memory serves me well, my first impression of the place was mediocre drinks and not-that-great roti bakar. However, few days back, Mel suggested we go there and HEY! the roti bakar and cham peng was pretty alright!

At least, better than my initial misgivings. You see, every kopithiam that I go to, I make it a point to taste their roti bakar and cham peng and that somewhat serves as my yardstick.

So far, although Old Town seems to be sprouting EVERYWHERE, I no longer patronise their kopithiam as it's quality of roti bakar has fallen by A LOT! Firstly, the bread is hard, dry and too thin. Secondly, they are rather miserly with the amount of kaya spread and thirdly, they don't spread the butter on the bread but instead, they serve long cubes of butter. How can that be satisfying at all??!!

Uncle Lim's at Ikano Power Centre serves a pretty decent roti bakar. The bread is slightly thicker and toasted to perfection that the bread is slightly crisp on the outside and not overtoasted to the point of it being hard. Besides, they are rather generous with the amount of butter and kaya spread. What more can I ask for?! =) Even the kopithiam in Atria that is next to KFC and the dvd shop serves a pretty satisfying roti bakar including the kopithiam in Genting's casino!!

Ok. So, back to Hailam Kopithiam. It seems to be managed by a Chinese (Probably explains the quality of food and ambiance that are maintained). The kopithiam appears to be doing pretty well as the night that I was first there, the place was just bustling with people. Not just youngsters or working people but even elderly people!!

It was a little hard to converse with my friends as the place was rather noisy with all the hustle and bustle of the crowd. Nevertheless, we still enjoyed ourselves. Right Mel?

Hence, me dragging Gill there the following day! I borrowed Mel's Canon Ixus 80is to test the camera as I am thinking of buying that model as it's within my budget. So, there I was just fooling around with the camera.

Which do you prefer? The shots with flash or without? I personally prefer those with flash where else Gill prefer's those without only that it's a tad too dark. The ones without flash tend to look a bit grainy.

Gill with the signature "peace sign" pose!

looking cheeky and mischievous!!

Playing around with the colour accent feature whereby everything is grey except the colour you want to showcase.

example of colour accent is.. see the pink on my sister's shirt?? the browny orange-ish colour of the roti bakar is more obvious!! the blue strap of my bag on my bed!! and the background is all grey.

but i am in a dilemma of whether to get this model or the Canon Ixus 110is??!!!

Any suggestions anyone??
