I don't usually do quotes but this one is an exception because I really agree with it ...

Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere.But sometimes, in the middle of nowhere you find yourself.

A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.~ Anonymous

Quite "chim". Have a great week :)

So, what do you think of the movie?

It was not bad. In fact, I like it.

Really? All that cos of some weaving machine that tells a person if he/she should die?

But, the message was beyond that, you know. I think it can be related to religion, in this case, the Fraternity is the religion and if you believe in a religion and its teachings, you are sort of "brainwashed" by it. The villain, or rather the "fraternity leader" in the show is the person who manipulated the weaving machine's codes and instructed his followers to kill the people based on his whims or at times for his own sake ie money.

Hmm, so "chim*" wan.

Yeah, and it is quite ironic, too. And I think because of that, Fox decided to kill herself because she had been manipulated all this while. Besides, I thought James McAvoy was very good playing his role as the geek who turned hero. I also dig the special effects (super cool effects)


Our conversation on the movie, Wanted, was left as that. I was apprehensive at first to watch 'Wanted' after looking at the super awful movie poster (yes, I judge), but then I thought there's James and there's Angie, it can't be that bad, right?

It wasn't. Trust me. Go watch.

*Chim = Profound (in Hokkien)

"Angels" (and there are everywhere)

Whoa. I felt like I haven't blogged for ages! Fact is, it has been 13.5 days since the last post. And, this whole 13.5 days I felt like I had done so many things and achieved quite a fair bit, too.

There was the product launch and then the Home Fair which is still running. I must admit it has all been very exciting to say the least. And, I enjoyed every bit of it although I've got blisters from walking too much and chapped lips from ... talking too much? Nah. More like lack of kisses from .... LOL

I promise to write more in the next weeks to come. Meantime, time for some photos - I think it's been a long time since the last. xoxo

"My Boos"
I feel like the papz shooting these. Shot during Father's day a couple of weeks ago.

Some hot shots from the Home Fair @ Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur

PS: My definition of "angels" are the people I've come to know of and had helped a great deal for the past 6 months and more. Look around you there are there *smile*

What'd you do?

What'd you do if you received a text from some unknown person on your mobile phone?

I've just received an sms from this person, X saying that he/she is X and how am I.

Baffled for a good few minutes there. Of cos, I am never one to like surprises or pranks. I hate pranks if you asked me cos I think it is plain childish. I've a MOF friend who pranked me once, I got so mad, I made him apologised profusely and sorta psychoed him, too.

So anyways, back to X. I replied asking which X are you cos I do know quite a no of X.

X replied saying he/she had met me in a party.

Whoaaaa, ok, X. This is a mistake. Clearly. For once, I hardly party - never a circuit boy, if that's what they call it. Second of all, the last event I was at, it was not even an event nor was it a party. So no way I had met someone at a party.

But, I politely asked which party?

Not only I did not get an answer, he/she went on to ask for my, get this, PICTURE!

W.T.F, rite?

So i replied, I'm sorry. I don recall knowing you n no, i'm not sending you any pic. No offence.

m just kidding only. Give me a call when u r free la. We can meet up for a tea. K? Hope to c u soon.

Err. , again no offence. I don remember anyth so don think der's any future meetings. Cheers

Yes, Cheers?! I told you I'm a polite person. But, what'd you do? Actually make an appointment to see this person? What if he turns out to look like Master Oogway?

No, then, that's kinda cute. Or, some psycho? Hmm, I'm as baffled as Po

PS: Kung Fu Panda is super! I love every bits of it.

Eat, Pray, Love

When my friend text me that petrol price will be increased yesterday, I didn't think much of it much less prepared for the absolute effect it will have on people's lives. Like, instantaneously.

I didn't think of immediately leaving office to queue at the petrol station to just fill up my half empty tank. I didn't think of the vicious cycle it will have to all the other costs directly or indirectly related to crude oil. I didn't think that to drink a cup of my favorite brew from the local (but a tad overrated, I must admit) coffee joint will become a luxury of yesterday. Literally. I didn't think that it will have an adverse effect to my live. Like, at all!

O.k. I may have been a little O.R (over-reacted) but really, I didn't think that much cos there was work. And, so I left the office at a little after 8.00pm thinking that yes, I could get on the road with as little "peak hours" traffic as possible. Prior to leaving the office, I received two missed calls from K. I returned his call.

K: "Hey what's up."

Me: "I'm queuing for petrol."

He let out a laugh I thought it was quite funny, too. Kinda like a hyena in heat laugh.

K: "I called earlier to tell you that."

Me: "But, how much? You know?"

K: "I think by 75 cents to a ringgit."

Me: "Fucking one ringgit per fucking litre? That's crazy!"

He laughed again. Tho' I seriously didnt think it was funny and I do not want to be a bitch.

K: "So. You are really in the petrol station?"


"Yes, and I'm using my mobile while talking to you cos I am planning a suicide here."

What happened after I put down the phone and drove out to Jalan Bukit Bintang was not laughing matter. I had to detour a few routes, changed a few CDs, honked a damn lot, chewed a lot of gums, and finally reached home. A total of 1 hr 45 minutes.


Petrol hike. Yes. The entire Klang Valley was out to go to their nearest even if not their favoritest petrol kiosk to fill up. It was far out - quite like watching "The Day After Tomorrow". Our "beloved" Prime Minister said we can't subsidised for the dear "rakyat" anymore, hence, we (the beloved govt) should kill all of us. Sloooooooooowly. Especially the low income to mid income families or individuals. He also said not to worry because if you are driving a car that is 2000 cc and below, you get a yearly rebate of RM650 per annum.

Right, that is real joy. We should toast but using plain water with ice.

J just text me she was happy with her new job and said she wants to finish off her book, "Eat, Pray and Love" before she knocks off.

Yes, that is exactly what all of us here needs now. I told her.

Vulgar or Couture

If you are Tom Ford, you can get away with almost anything. Even if your latest ad campaign is a little risque, attention-grabbing and quite pornographic.

Yes. I'm talking about the kind where mothers, religious or not, will march down the street holding up placards which say, TOM FORD IS PORN! BAN TOM FORD.

But, you know what. After looking at it in a different perspective, I think his ads are very effective. Seriously, you will start noticing them clothes .. boobies and erm, flacid penises aside. My fav are the last three pictures.

Another kudos for TF. This will go down the fashion history well... well? Very well if it hasn't already.
