Just Because

Today, I was woken up by a phone call at 545am. I was startled, since I am a bit paranoid about phone calls early morning ever since my house was broke in few months back. Anyway, I missed the call since I put some eye ointment for my eye infection, so it was a bit blurry and I cant even press the call button. hahaha. so anyway, once i pulled my lids open with my hands, lol, i saw that it was from my friend, T. Only one thing came on my mind, she's in delivery. So i called her back, and, I was right, she called to inform that she has given birth to a baby girl at 1:07 am. What a way to wake up, huh.. a happy news. I always love to hear about people giving birth, especially those closest to me. Can't wait to see T & her baby!

Anyway, today I am going to Lumut, again, for like the zillionth time for these past few months. However, today's trip is going to be a bit different, as I am taking bubuk along. Really looking forward to spend a little bit of time with her away from the city. She has to study for the finals this weekend, so it would ber perfect for her too, to study at the hotel, while I was away for my meeting. I can't wait to show bubuk around the place, if we have time. Might jump on the ferry and off to Pulau Pangkor :P

Well, hope the day gets better. Peace out. XOXO

Morning Stroll With My Bro

I woke up at 545am today. When I got a text from my brother last night, saying that he'll pick me up at 615am, i was like WTH was he thinking? He told me that he's going to bring me to the Lake Gardens, KL, I thought just the usual walk around the housing area.. so I guess the timing was alright and I was pretty excited about it.

So he came exactly at 615am, and we reached at the Lake Gardens, around 645am. Oh boy I was glad we started early, because it was beautiful.. the day is stuck between night and day, the sun has not risen, the lamps still on, but its not dark anymore. The air was clear.

We started walking, quite fast.. and I really enjoyed the quality time spent with my big bro. What suprised me was, I never thought I was in KL.. with the lush greens surrounded us... it was amazing, really. It was also the first time I went there. I thought we were the crazy ones.. but now to my suprise, there were a lot of people there, walking, jogging, doing taichi. Some came alone, some with families, from kids to old people.. this was really an eye opener. A place where u dont really need to spend any money, but you can have fun, spent good time with family.

I dont know the route we took, i just follow Upiq, but there were uphills and downhills, not just flatlands okay.. so it gets pretty intense all around.. it was pushing the limits for me on some of the tracks. we walked up and jogged lightly to descent. the tracks were pretty good there. so anyway, there was this LONGGGGG stairs and when abg fiq said.. JOM.. i was like.. WHAT? are you kidding me? he said... the speed/pace is not important, u can stop as many times you like. the aim is just to get up there. I was like okayyyyy.. so we climb. and climb. and I SURVIVED! i felt like Rocky. i would do that Rocky dance on top but i was so tired. hahahahaha.. so anyway, I think we walked about 5km, according to Upiq.. we started from Bukit Aman, up to Carcosa where i saw kl central and muzium negara, back to the lake then to the the planetarium, the bird park, Tun Razak memorial, Pusat Islam, Masjid Negara and back to Bukit Aman where we parked the car and it took us about 1 1/2 hours. Yeah.. the slow me. Upiq said it would take 30 minutes if we jogged. Like that going to happen. haahaahaha. Oh yes, on our way, near the Planetarium, we saw this structure from afar that looked so much like Stonehenge. As we came nearer, it was a replica of the Stonehenge. I never knew we had this. Who knows, Stonehenge in Kuala Lumpur. haha. Well, its "Stone Hence" LOL. typo. how can they make such mistake.

Morning well spent. Had a really great time. Really looking forward to do this again. Great acitivity with friends and family.

Here are some pics. I didnt take much cuz i was too busy breathing. LOL.

When we started, the lamps were still on

Look at the uncle, he cant even walk properly, but he were there ya know. I was so inspired. NO reason to be lazy tau!

Some old people doing tai-chi

Bro Upiq at the Stonehenge

The Day I Hate Shopping...well at least for awhile ;))

I've been searching for a red handbag for awhile now. I am a bit fussy in finding the right one because it's red and I want something that I can use all the time not just for fashion.

My friend at work told me Guess is having a sale. So S & I went to the Guess boutique in Pavillion. Damnnnnnnnn we were crazy!!! hahaha. I LOVEEEEE this one polka dot bag, a hand held bag in green/olive colour with white polka dots and with huge G logo with diamantes. OOOHHHHHHH i likee!!! its' RM369 less 40%. After less, still pricey but it's oh so beautiful i like. hahah. but the material is this satiny like, so that put me off a bit. I was really tempted to buy it. So I was browsing again, then i saw this one bag, dark blue and white.. then i was holding this one red bag, i didnt really like it but its kinda nice.. then the sales clerk told me that the blue and white bag has red. I was like, oh yeah?? Bring it on.. then as he pulled out the bag from the store and out of the plastic to show it to me.. i can tell that I fell in love at first sight. It's just the thing i was looking for, the size, the design, the red shade.. i love everything about it. I was holding on to it and don't want to let go. It's RM399 and it's among the ones that has 40% off. Then the sales clerk dropped the bomb. He said that the 40% is only applicable if we buy another item from the shop. DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s purchase with purchase. There’s nothing in the shop that I can afford anyway. Lol. I only want the bag. Takkan nak beli 2 beg kan? New arrival and the one with 40%. For the amount (the bag & the other item), I would rather buy the Lesportsac bag I’ve been drooling over, which of course I could not afford.

So I put the bags back on the shelf and went out of the shop empty handed. But at least, my money is still in the wallet. There’s always another bag, right? Right? Errr right??

Friends etc.

A friend of mine is away for work. Her name is Ain. Hahaha I know this post is similar to her post about me. lol. But seriously, I felt lost without her. We talked to each other everyday, and while at work, we e-mailed each other all day long, since both of us don’t have the luxury of using any chatting programme. So my days pretty mundane without her. I MISS YOU NOORAIN!!!

Thinking about friends, I am blessed that I’ve been lucky to have found many great friends. What I love most about friendship is that, age, distance, background doesn’t really matter. When people clicked, they just clicked. Friend, as defined by my loyal dictionary is a person you know well and like. So it doesn’t matter where you are, where you are from, you still can be friends.

I don’t like to put labels on people as I’ve learned that labels are not important. What matters is what your heart says. However, I do call those friends who are very close to me as my best friends. Simply just because, they are the best of the friends I have. Those who stick with me through thick and thin. Those who accept me they way I am. Those who understands me. Is it wrong to call these people my best friends? These friends don’t need to be with me all the time, but somehow, when we get together again, it’s like we were never apart. Knowing that the friend is around is enough.

Does time measure friendship? Friendship evolved through time but people can get close a short period of time. So what if I call a friend I only know for 2 months a best friend? For me, time doesn’t measure friendship. Friendship is like wine, it gets better through time. Not that I know that, but just as an expression. Maybe we can use curry. Lol. Curry tasted better after a few days :P. Anyway, sometimes, it is more frustrating when you’ve been with someone for years, but at the end of the day, she or he is the one that don’t understand you at all.

And who says that we can’t be friends just because we are far apart? Friends don’t need to meet everyday, shop together, etc.. but if we can, that would be great. I talked to my friend Amoi who is in Texas right now, everyday, and I think I talked to her more than my friends here. I made friends with people all around the world.. and sometimes, I feel closer to them than some of my friends here. I used to be active in those pen-pals thingy when I was in school, and it stuck to me but now its with online friends. Some people say online friends are not real. Why are they not real, tell me please? I agree some are phony, but what if those who are not? Are they not real? Those we talked to webcam everyday, whatever they do in their private life, is their own concern, but the person who talked to us everyday, in front of you is real as your friend sitting next to you. We might not now their background, but as long as they don’t trick or trying to take advantage of you, I think it’s fine. And sometimes, if you think about it, even if your friend is sitting right next to you, you still don’t know who that person is, right?

So anyway, people get close for lots of reasons – maybe because of the same interest, maybe because we experienced the same incident, maybe it just because we just clicked. There is always something that makes people connect. Do you think it’s fair when people question you on your relationship with another person?

What I am trying to say is… friendship doesn’t care about looks, about age, about background, about distance, about time.. all you need is honesty, trust, understanding and a good heart.

Details in the Fabric

There's one thing about me that you should know is that i love songs. and I love lyrics. sometimes, I dont like the beat or the music for first time i heard it, but when i listen to the words, I will fell in love with that song. ;P

I love when people introduce me to songs. I love sharing songs. I listen to most types of music. I found great friends, just by having the same taste in music.;-)

I am going to share this one song that I keep on playing over and over again. It's "Details in the Fabric" by Jason Mraz featuring James Morrison. It is a beautiful song and has a meaningful lyrics. The first time I heard it, i feel like I am in my own world, thinking, relaxed and calm. The song soothes me.
The song talks about having a problem or feeling down.... and jason sang that he is trying to help. At the same time, you shouldnt rely on people, hold on your own, know your name and go your own way. It will take time to heal, whatever thing that trouble you but it will be fine in the end. Don't fuss on the details in the fabric, as it is futile, the things is too small too think too much about it. There's are other things to think about than the details. Beautiful isnt it, another lemons and lemonade song. :-) Well, that's my interpretation anyway.

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling all your threads saying
Breaking yourself up

If it's a broken part, replace it
If it's a broken arm then brace it
If it's a broken heart then face it

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your own name
And go your own way

And everything will be fine
Everything will be fine

Hang on
Help is on the way
Stay strong
I'm doing everything

Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And everything, everything will be fine

Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?

Are the things that make you blow
Hell, no reason, go on and scream
If you're shocked it's just the fault
Of faulty manufacturing.

Yeah everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all

Hold your own
And know your name
And go your own way

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling? (Go your own way)

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic (Go your own way)
Is it Mother Nature's sewing machine?

Are the things that make you blow (Hold your own, know your name)
Hell no reason go on and scream
If you're shocked it's just the fault (Go your own way)
Of faulty manufacturing

Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Hearts will hold

~ Details in the Fabric, Jason Mraz feat. James Morisson from Jason's new album "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things"

Music Emotions

I don’t know about you but I can say that my emotions are controlled by music. Hehehe. It changes with the songs I listen to. If I am sad and would like to be emotional that way, I’ll listen to those songs that just can prick my heart. Hahah what a way to torture yourself. Lol. Anyway, if I am sad and want to forget about it, I’ll play the song that I know will cheer me up. but today something happened, even the song I usually play to make me happy made me sad. The song reminded me of a friend that gone MIA these couple of weeks. So listening to that song, made me miss my friend more. Come back soon, please! Oh well, nevermind.. heheh just blabbing.

Sour Lemons, Sweet Lemonade

I haven't been blogging in such a long time. Feels good to write again. I had this phase of not wanting to share my feelings. So, now, I am going to start afresh. This blog is about my life. Sometimes, its great, sometimes its not. It's not perfect, but it's my life and living the best way I can. Sometimes sour like lemons, but put in some sugar and ice, it can be sweeeeeeetttttttttt like lemonade. Loving it!
