Happy Friday

Most of us will be on a long holiday next week especially those who are working in the Federal Territory as next Tuesday is the Fed. Territory Day - including yours truly ! Woooo hoooooo !!!

Today itself, after work I'll be doing something I really hate that is driving & it's even worse coz it's gonna be a 3 hours drive. I'll be on a holiday the whole of next week & am taking the opportunity to spend it with my family in Kuantan. Home sweet home !

To all Malaysians, have a happy weekend & to my half clan, Happy Chinese New Year !

When The Dumb Gets Dumber !

Many Malaysian men still using women-only coaches

Kuala Lumpur (The Star/ANN) - The coaches clearly carry signs that they are for women only, yet many men get into them and race with women for the seats.

While some men claimed ignorance, others just did not care.......

( go here to read the whole story)


I was totally amazed after reading this news. Wow ! Guys are are really that stupid, arent they ? Their stupidity simply leaves me speechless. I know they are stupid but this is way, way far beyond that. Looks like all of my thoughts about men being stupid all these whiles are not a skepticism remarks after all - it's one hard solid fact. Woooo hoooooo !!!!

Guys, c'mon..... it has been more than 9 months since KTM launched the female coach services. Dont tell me you are so ignorant that you dont even know the existence of this special coach? Seriously, just how long do you guys need to make those cells in your brain starts working?

This is the thing with guys. For us women, no matter how ignorant we can be with what's going on around us - seeing a coach filled with guys, we dont even think twice not to step in. On the other hand, guys will react differently (tell me something new !). Even if they have to pull a stunt to get onto the coach, they are more than willing to do so.

The moment they saw the coach with only ladies in it, their thinking capability will automatically being taken over by their dicks. Simultaneously, their brain will immediately stop functioning, followed by the rest of their senses (which is why they cant even differentiate the right coach for them).

So guys, dont hate me for criticizing your species. It's clearly not my mistake. With all these male stupidos & stupidities around me, how can I not to? (~ smiling from ear to ear ~ )

Happy Friday

Frown and you frown alone, but smile and the whole world smiles with you. Smiling is a great way to make yourself stand out while helping your body to function better. Not only it improve your health & stress level, smiling can lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. But best of all, it's a natural way to make yourself and others feel really good.

Happy Friday & have a blessed weekend to all ! Muahhhhhh !!!!!

Do I Need To Say More?

Last year on the 28th April, KTM Komuter introduces the pink coach for the ladies. This special coach themed "Ladies Only At All Times" only allows ladies to be on board and boys aged below 12 if they are accompanied by a female passenger.

Similarly to KTM Komuter, RapidKL introduced their women-only buses on trial run yesterday. The Rapid Lady Bus service for seven routes with high passenger volume began on Dec 1 and will end on Dec 31. There are two bus services at 6.45am and 7.30am and at 6pm and 6.45pm daily.

With the current trend, I am not surprised if more & more public services like LRTs, cinemas, shops, banks would soon take the same approach too. Anyway, this got nothing to do with Malaysia being an Islamic country. Neither does it got to do with Malaysian women being given an extra privileges.

With the existence of these female-only coach & buses, what does that tells you? Simple. Men are perverts. Well, do I need to say more?

I rest my case !

Men After Marriage

Love is blind but marriage is an eye-opener. We often hear these kind of jokes every now & then about marriages. The sad thing is that it is usually women who's at the at the receiving end of all these jokes. How unfair is the world, isn't it?

Do men change after marriage? Absolutely, positively, and undoubtly....yes, yes, and yes! Men do change after marriage. When men read this, they would immediately says, women changed too ! Yes, we did but ever asking yourself why women changed? Simply becoz their men changed first ! They dont have the choice but to adapt themselves to the "new" men she's expected to spend her entire life with.

A friend of mine recently told me about her husband who would only caress & embrace her when he wanted sex. Well, doesnt that sounds familiar? I've often heard and even had the same exact experience before. Men are one just one selfish pig. It's only their interest & desires that they cared the most. To the hell with the womens' - after all they are made to serve their men !

What happened to the romantic man who’d be content to gaze at his girlfriend’s eyes for an eternity? What happened to the man who couldn’t bear to hang up even at 2 am? What happened to the man who just couldnt let go of his hand as if somebody would come & snatch her away from him? What happened to the man who hugs her even under the hot sun? What happened to that very man?

That man is now being satisfied that he already gotten what he wants. Now that he's already married to his woman, all he needs to do is to just sit & enjoy his conquest. There's no more needs to demonstrate his love as openly as before. He knows that she will always be around for him whenever he needs her. Hence, he tends to take her for granted - something men are really, really, really good at !

I pitied most of the women out there ( including myself). Why is it so difficult for you guys to show just a bit of your love & appreciation to us, women? We are not asking a bucket of gold or a briefcase filled with cash. A peck on a cheek welcoming us home or a warm hug while watching TV is more than enough. Is that too much to ask? All we ever crave for is constant catering & attention - and dont just do that when you wanna get fuck !

I know for the fact that not all men change in this way after marriage. There are still a handful of men who are doting and as loving as they were before, if not more. If you end up with such a man, hold on to him with metal claws - he is one rare species!

Below is a joke I would like to share with you readers, that shows how men changed after marriage :

The Love Word:
After 6 weeks: I looo-ve you, I love you, I love you!
After 6 months: Of course, I love you.
After 6 years: GOD, if I didn’t love you, then why did I marry you?

Back from Work:
After 6 weeks: Honey, I’m home!
After 6 months: I’m BACK!!
After 6 years: Have you cooked yet?

Phone Ringing:
After 6 weeks: Baby, somebody wants you on the phone.
After 6 months: Here, it’s for you.

After 6 weeks: I never knew food could taste so good!
After 6 months: What are we having for dinner tonight?
After 6 years: DUMPLING AGAIN??

New Dress:
After 6 weeks: Wow, you look like an angel in that dress.
After 6 months: You bought a new dress again?
After 6 years: How much did THAT cost me?

After 6 weeks: Baby, what would you like us to watch tonight?
After 6 months: I like this movie.
After 6 years: I’m going to watch PIRATES play, if you’re not in the mood, go to bed, I can stay up by myself!

Making Love:
After 6 weeks: Baby, I want you tonight?
After 6 months: Lets make another baby, my mother just called!!!
After 6 years: Please MOVE over to your side, I’m suffocating here!!!!

Honestly, I am also aware of the fact that not only men who change after marriage. Women change as well. Unfortunately, this blog is not about them - and forever it will never be !

Happy Friday

Life is not like a bed of roses. It needs to rain in order to get the rainbows. Everything in life is a lesson- what you take from what you learned is what is important. If something did or didn’t happen, it did or didn’t for a reason.

Sometimes the cards we are dealt are not always fair. Letting go doesn't mean giving up... it means moving on. It is one of the hardest things a person can do. Starting at birth, we grasp on to anything we can get our hands on, and hold on as if we will cease to exist when we let go. We feel that letting go is giving up, quitting, and that as we all know is cowardly. But as we grow older we are forced to change our way of thinking. We are forced to realize that letting go means accepting things that cannot be. It means maturing and moving on, no matter how hard you have to fight yourself to do so.

Sunrises are beautiful…but so are sunsets. Sometimes a sunset is so beautiful you never want it to end. With every sunrise there is a sunset.

It's Friday everybody ! Do have a great weekend & make sure it's filled with joy & laughter.

The Title-less Entry

I know I'm bad. I know I'm harsh. And I know I can be really mean too at times. - especially towards the other gender. My men-bashing issues have often triggered the anger from the opposite sex. Lots of the guys' tentacles have been flicked & egos being slashed.

People, generally men, hated me for what I wrote. They hated me to the extent of calling me sluts, idiots and 1001 other bad names they could come up with. Truths are forever painful. Rather than analyzing the facts, these men jumped right away when the truth are being thrown to their faces. They leave vulgar comments to screw me up for all the true facts I've revealed about them.

One of them could even asked me why am I still harping on the same issues. Why cant I write about something else and stop condemning the males? There are millions of blog out there in this virtual world. There are cooking blogs, food blogs, travel blogs, gossip blogs but men-bashing blog ? Well, it is something very rare & unique, isnt it? I'm just different from the rest and for that, I stuck out like a sore thumb !

For the hundredth of times, again I'm saying this : This blog is my own personal blog. Neither one of you are invited nor prohibited to read whatever I wrote here. If you think that my blog is one whole bunch of shit, by all means just leave. Even if I keep on loathing on the same issues every now & then, and even if I decided to be one self-obsessed bitch, it's my damn fucking business coz this is my blog, for crying out loud !

I am not writing to gain popularity. Neither am I writing to get any of those many blogger awards around. This blog does not generate any income to me. I wouldnt have to skip any meals if no one were to drop by at this blog. And my blog didnt owe anybody a single cent that I should adhere to their preferences. So, why the fuck should I write just to please some of you, sick readers out there?

I hope I've made myself loud & clear - especially to this shorty who left the following comment for my yesterday's entry, Tall vs Short :

hai knp la engkau ni sakit agaknya. bawa2 buat cerita lain. kau ni pesal takde benda yg senonoh yg ko nak buat. OMG please for heaven's sake. tapi nak buat mcm mana yer since well i hv lost words for you. i am so sorry for you. siannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Adios amigos !

Tall vs. Short

To all males who happen to bump into this entry, my thousand apologies if some of you get offended with the issue I'm about to discuss herewith. I am in no position to condemn God's creation, what else to belittle men in general though it does gives me some kind of satisfaction writing all these (you cant blame me for being honest here, cant you?)

Did any one of you notice that there are lesser and lesser tall guys around? The world is now dominated by shorties ! The amount of short guys in our country has been exponentially increased with time. Where are the tall ones? And I havent started talking about the good looking ones....duhhhhhh !!

I've made an observation whenever I am in the public be it on the street or at malls. When I looked around, all I'm seeing are the short ones. Out of 20, I cant hardly detect one...just one tall guy. Let alone finding a couple of them !

Ok, when I said tall here, it would means 5' 8" and above. Anything lesser that that is considered short by my standard - coz I am 5' 3". So, if it just 1" or 2" above me, that's considered negligible coz the majority of time when I'm out of my house, I'll be on my heels which is at least 3" of height. So technically, I am 5' 6" which is why my standard for "tall" starts at 5' 8". Fair enuff, isnt it?

Honestly, tall guys are slowly extinct from this part of the world. They have slowly becoming the endangered species it seems. Sometimes, when you are at the food court while having your food, you could see some good looking guys sitting across your table. Not bad, you said to yourself. But then, the moment he's standing all the interest you had earlier just died. As if they have been electrocuted - zapppp & it's gone. It's another shorty....huhuhu.

I dunno about other females, but for me, this is how I do the maths on tall versus short guys. For tall guys, they'll immediately earn extra 10 points for their height. It always starts with the height. Then comes the rest of the evaluations - face is a bit out, minus 1. Excessive fats around the waist & tummy area - minus 2. Flat ass - minus another 3 (to some extent, I'd even minus 4 or 5 - depending on how flat it is :P ). Great sense of humour - extra 2....so on and so forth. So, by the time you are done with your evaluations, tall guys still have at least 5 points left with them.

Now come the shorties. From the very beginning of the evaluations, 10 points need to be deducted from them due to the inadequate height - leaving them with only -10 (minus 10) for a start. With all the additional subtractions & add-ons of points during the evaluation process, they would end up with a mere 1 or 2 points the most & that's if their lucky. Some could even end up with minus points - especially those big headed cows. How sad, isn't it?

I know I am bad. I also know that it's something beyond their control or wish. Everybody is this world would wanna have a perfect look - tall, dark & handsome for the guys and voluptuously beautiful for the ladies. What does all those physical qualities got to do when you have a good heart, right? But the thing is, finding a guy with a good heart is as hard (or even harder) as finding a tall guy. And bear in mind that it's not the good looking ones who often messed up with their woman's heart & trust - it's those ugly ones, most of the times. Not enuff being ugly, they have to compliment it with their ugly attitude as well. Bravo !

A guy once told me this : the shorter the guy is, the bigger his ego will be - because they feel the needs to “prove” themselves to their taller peers. Do your own observation & surprise yourself with the result. I've done mine & all I can say is that, it's extremely true !

Why I Like Attending Weddings

Since I am still in the wedding mood, my next entry would still revolves around the same subject. I dunno about you guys but for me, I just love attending weddings.

1. I get to dress myself up. Though most of the days I do dress up to work but what makes weddings so special is that I've got to dress up in my traditional attire that is the baju kurung. Besides Hari raya, wedding is the only occasion I can be seen in baju kurung.

2. I get to use my fake eye-lashes. Weddings gave me a good reason to put on my fake eye lashes. I love using it so much but to use it on daily basis is very, very troublesome. I have to spend at least 15 - 20 minutes just to get it right due to lack of practice. Looks like I need more wedding invitations to specifically master this skill.

3. I get to meet old friends up. It's during weddings where some of my old & long lost friends suddenly appear before me. It's a great opportunity to catch up on each others latest updates and stories. And if I'm lucky, I'll even bump into my old flames too - which is why looking damn good is my top priority for the event.

4. I get to see lots of beautiful things. First and foremost, the bride would most of the times looks gorgeous. No matter how ugly they can be but on that very special day, you could see the glowing & radiance sparkled on their faces. Everything that revolves around weddings are beautiful. The bride, the wedding dress, the gifts & hantarans, the guests & even the canopies look awesome.

5. It simply makes me feel good. Weddings are a celebration of joy & happiness where everything & everybody around you looks & feel great. Being beautifully dressed up, looking pretty, having good food, surrounded with smiley faces everywhere - well, all these just lift up my mood & spirit instantly. And the best thing is, this feel-good feeling would normally last in me the whole day long.

Weddings are just too beautiful to be missed - be there & feel good !

Farrah's Engagement

Last Sunday was the most memorable day for my friend, Farrah as it was the day she got engaged to her handsome Mauritius beau. They are such a lovely couple who are really made for each other very, very well - as the Malays say it "bagaikan pinang dibelah dua".

Look how adorable they are !

The ceremony was held at Farrah's place in Cheras. The house was beautifully decorated with the presence of all her close friends & relatives to share the joy. We managed to get there on time after a few u-turns & SOS calls made to Farrah - Google maps really failed me this time.....where the heck is Jalan Kinabalu ????

Apart from Farrah being super gorgeous, I love the pelamin too. It's just so sweet & simple - which is how it should be as this is just an engagement ceremony. Being there I cant help it but to reminisce on my own engagement way back in 1993. I was still a studying at that time - so gatal isn't it?

I really have to upload this favourite pic. of mine as I looked as awesome as the bride herself (my apologies for this overly self-obsessed statement )

Back then, wedding itself is so simple with no such things as wedding themes, nice canopies, expensive hantarans, wedding planner etc. When the wedding can be that simple, imagine how the engagement would be. I still remembered the super plain beige coloured kebaya I wore that day which I bought at Globe Silk Store for only RM49.90 ! And that's about it - with just a talcum powder on my face & a streak of lip gloss on my lips, I waited patiently in my room for the ring to be inserted through my finger. Too bad the pictures are in my hometown - otherwise I could have upload it here for a good laugh.

Well, those were the days.......looking at how much it developed, I wonder how would it be during Marsya's time. Well, if she intents to have a grand event for both her engagement & wedding ceremony, she only have 12 more years to find herself a rich husband (this is based on her own wish to get married at the age of 24). Otherwise, she might end up like her mummy too - but since Globe Silk Store is no longer in business, Tang Ling would be the next best option !

Happy Friday

Reading the above quote, I could only hope. Hope that when that "someday" arrives, I would be able to open up to him. Hope that I would be able to trust like I used to. Hope that I would be able to love the same way I've loved before. Hope that I would finally be able to give my heart to him - though it wouldnt look that nice anymore due to the old wounds all over it.

And when that someday is finally here, I just hope I wont kill it with my own skepticism. These walls that I've built around me are not to keep people out but to see who cares enough to knock them down someday........if there's any.

Happy Friday to all & may your weekend carves a big smile on your face that would last for a whole week !

My Unfulfilled Dreams

As last year been a good year for me, 2011 doesnt seems to follow the same trend. Marsya dropped a bomb yesterday by handing me this letter :

This is how she gave me the letter (which was written in Microsoft Powerpoint, by the way - that's how advance kids are nowadays !). The moment she clicked open the file, she straight away ran into her room - quite a normal act from a girl who is very much aware of how crazy her mummy could be.

Actually, I already see it's coming - the fact that she doesnt wanna play piano anymore. I could sense the rejection through that tiny fingers of hers whenever I make her practice her music notes. I knew, somehow or rather she's gonna let it out and it is just a matter of time (or courage) before she could actually call it a quit.

She was quite surprised I didnt get fired up after reading her letter. Why would I? Though it was her who wanted to learn piano in the first place, but what's the point of pursuing it when there's no more interest left in her. I dont like putting pressure on my daughter to do something she doesnt enjoy. I myself would hate it very much if somebody force me to do something I dont like. So, I have to be fair to her also, isnt it?

Honestly, I am disappointed. Truly disappointed. Apart from the money I've invested in buying her the piano 3 years ago, what disappoints me more is the fact that she wont be able to achieve my dreams for me. I've always wanted to learn to play piano when I was small but obviously my parents cant afford it. So, when Marsya told me she wanted to learn, I was so thrilled & excited. If I cant play it myself, having my own daughter playing it for me is more than enough. ~ big sigh ~

Looks like I have to resort to Plan B. "Able to play piano" would be one of the specs. I need to add into my dreamed man's minimum requirement list - apart from being good looking, tall, rich, smart, six-packs abs, big bikers etc etc....hahahaha !

Farewell 2010, Hello 2011

Goodbye 2010 & welcome 2011. This year has gone so fast that I'm still not quite sure if I've had a good or bad year. There have been some ups and some downs, as usual. But honestly, it has been a great year for me. It was really good that I cant even think of any bad happenings for the entire 2010.

2010 started very well with me celebrating my fabulous 40th birthday - the best age anybody could ever asked for. Welcoming the big "4 oh" at a grand restaurant with my besties was really awesome. It was one of the best moment of my life. And just before that - I've actually won myself a lunch voucher from the local radio station. For somebody who rarely won anything in her life, winning that voucher is considered big. Huge !

Then, came the trip to Korea where I've got to spend the whole weekend there - which gives me the opportunity to visit all the beautiful palaces & gardens in Seoul while getting to know their culture & history. It cant get any better than that, isnt it? Or should I include the marriage proposal I got as one of the good things for 2010? Hehehe....in a way, it was a good thing, I would say (though it's not something I've looked forward to).

2010 has also been a good year for my tummy too. It's the year where I've explored lots of makan places with my dear frens - the celibacy club members to be specific. We had such great fun together trying out all kind of foods around KL. Good food with great company - simply astounding !

It is also the year where I've traveled to Kota Kinabalu with my family. There are 5 of us altogether & it was fun & laughter all the way. The KK trip was filled with tremendous sweet memories - except for the part where I've got a diarrhea on the last day of the trip. Terribly horrible experience !

Come to think of it, there are too many good things in 2010 that I just couldnt possibly list them all here. The Broga Hill adventure, Batik Fun Walk, Christmas party, making new frens with my own readers ( ct, anita, syaz, sunny and jenny to name a few) and not forgetting the newest member in my family - Ahmad Amsyar, my new nephew.

With all these in hand, 2010 has to be considered a good year. And for that, I am so grateful to Allah for all the blessings He has given me through out the year. I pray & hope things will be as great, or even better for 2011 and the years to come. Amin.
