I Don't Love You

There's this song that's pretty stuck in my head lately. Can't seem to get it out, yet I don't know the lyrics to it. The humming rang all day. Now that I've got the lyrics all figured out, I think I'm beginning to appreciate it better now. In songs, it has always been all about the lyrics for me.

Artist : My Chemical Romance
Song : I Don't Love You

Well, when you go
Don't ever think I'll make you try to stay
And maybe when you get back
I'll be off to find another way

And after all this time that you still owe
You're still the good-for-nothing I don't know
So take your gloves and get out
Better get out
While you can

When you go
Would you even turn to say
"I don't love you
Like I did

Sometimes I cry so hard from pleading
So sick and tired of all the needless beating
But baby when they knock you
Down and out
It's where you oughta stay

And after all the blood that you still owe
Another dollar's just another blow
So fix your eyes and get up
Better get up
While you can
Whoa, whooa

When you go
Would you even turn to say
"I don't love you
Like I did

Well come on, come on

When you go
Would you have the guts to say
"I don't love you
Like I loved you

I don't love you
Like I loved you

I don't love you
Like I loved you

Happy Birthday Daddy!

"Tanggal dua puluh lima, bulan sepuluh, lima puluh tujuh...
lahir bapa saya, hari jadi dia,
sambut dengan jiwa yang merdeka....!"

I gotta admit, that's fits Sulaiman's Tanggal 31 song pretty well XD I LOVE IT!!
*syiok sendiri*

My beloved daddy turns the big FIVE-O. Psst, don't say F-I-F-T-Y, he said it makes him sound old... And so, in place of the traditional cake and the home cooked dinner filled with all the goodness my mom can afford to throw into the wok, we decided to make it BIG, as in REAL BIG~ So unlike our simple, chin-cai style, but people is turning half a century old mah!

With over 20 guests in total, we celebrated at the renowned japanese restaurant in Shangri-La Hotel, ZIPANGU.

Zipangu, by Nadaman.

The amazing array of wine surrounding us upon entry. The alcohol lover in me just can't resist it. If I were to rob anywhere once in my lifetime, I would rob this wine collection and I just know that I will die happily ever after.

We sneakily got the waitress to reserve a reclusive corner of the restaurant with a little more space for our monkey business privacy. Ironically, a high class restaurant like this does not offer any private function rooms for booking. We were seated behind some water feature decor, really far away from the food. I guess it allowed us time to digest a little between our buffet rounds =) I was so disgustingly bloated, after like 3 rounds.

Some of the yummy super uber fresh sashimi, 4 thumbs up (from both hands and feet, no kidding) for their fresh salmon! I such a glutton for raw salmon that I chowed down so much that I thought I was gonna suffer from diarrhoea later on for raw food overdose. To announce something that I'm very proud of achieving that day, I ATE FRESH OYSTERS! Without the least urge to throw up! This is only my second attempt and I finally get to savour the real satisfaction, the reason behind the incredible popularity of Oyster lovers worldwide! Okay, maybe the other reason lays in the aphrodisiac part of it. But taste too you know? Sucks to think that I sunk my teeth into not-so-fresh oyster on my first attempt, it was so horrible I shied away from the fresh seafood palate for nearly a year. Oh, I missed out on so much potentially juicy and yummy oysie babies!

Types of salad available are more than I can count with the fingers on your hand. Unless of course, your hands are actually live tentacles, then you wouldn't have any fingers to count with in the first place.

I didn't bother to take too many pictures either, forgive me. I become especially fickle when distracted by a yummylicious japanese buffet spread. Stomach more important, hehe. It has been tortured with Semenyih food long enough. Several times during the day, I reminded Bernard to take the pictures, and he too didn't take much. He's too occupied with his Salmon Head to bother about me I guess. Again, he has failed to give me the photos I need. To hell with the lot of it, I shall just blog without. It has happened so often that I've grown numb to it. That's what happens when he's too busy, with what I have no idea, must be something extremely important, more important than me of course...

My dad's birthday cupcakes! Cute huh? Yeah I know it's real colourful, and kiddie, and girlie... We're celebrating a 50 year old's birthday like it's a 5 year olds. Lol, he'll always be a little boy to us, let him reminisce the past 50 years of life with this. This is the future of birthdays I tell you. Not only are they so adorable, they are handy, no plates, no cutleries, no tissue, no knife, easy to take away and best of all, no arguments about wanting a bigger or smaller size! Anyway, these cupcakes were ordered from my previous florist boss, so far I've got some people really interested in these little cuties. They are definitely more affordable than those from Bisou or any other specialty house, but I guarantee they are as yummy, if not yummier! Hence, I shall give you all the contacts...

A last picture of myself, my outfit and the water feature. I really do think I look pretty tall here XD Too bad it didn't turn out well.

That pretty much concludes it. For those who attended, please ask me for the pictures directly, I'm too lazy to upload the high resolution ones =P Saving my fats for a better reason *wink*

Kimi Raikkonen, The World Champion!

The race started on a Sunday night, when I'm already in Bandar Sunway Semenyih. I long to watch the final race. Despite the many cold buckets of water that I've received, yea thanks so much guys, I knew I just had to watch it. The closest I got to watching the race was on 's Live Timing feature. Even that itself had me biting my nails in excitement. And then I found this article that says it all. Celebrate, for Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari is The World Champion!

"Finally, after two near-misses, Kimi Raikkonen has his very own world championship. It may have been a long time coming but what a one to win. By bettering double world champion Fernando Alonso and the sport’s newest superstar, Lewis Hamilton, Raikkonen has secured Ferrari their first driver title of the post-Schumacher era and denied former team McLaren their only compensation from a difficult season.

Back at the season-opener in Australia, Raikkonen was already looking like a champion-in waiting. Taking pole, victory and fastest lap to boot, he dominated the Melbourne race weekend. Of course, the McLaren duo were also in the mix, as was Raikkonen’s team mate Felipe Massa, but it was the Finn who looked to have the advantage.

Fast forward to mid-season, however, and it was different story. As Hamilton, Massa and Alonso traded wins, Raikkonen seemed to slip by the wayside. Struggling to adapt to the new Bridgestone tyres, the 28-year-old went six races without a victory. With less than half the points of championship leader Hamilton, his title chances looked decidedly bleak.

For one thing, luck seemed to have deserted him. An electrical failure in Spain and an accident during qualifying in Monaco were just two of the mishaps which seriously dented Raikkonen’s mid-season challenge. A faulty wind tunnel back at the factory was also wreaking minor havoc on Ferrari’s programme of development.

But just as matters looked to be irretrievable, fate moved in his favour. In France, whether down to clever strategy, hard work or just plain good fortune, Raikkonen began to look at ease in the F2007. Backing up his victory at Magny-Cours with another in Silverstone, a revival was on the cards. Even the hydraulics failure at the Nurburgring did little to dent Raikkonen’s resurgence. With the impetus on his side, the quietly determined Finn hauled in valuable points to close on leader Hamilton.

Although reliability problems continued to plague the Italian squad, it was Massa who seemed to bear the brunt of their effects with the Brazilian’s title fight eventually petering out after his suspension strife in Monza. Raikkonen’s charge, meanwhile, was unrelenting. With his title hopes further strengthened by dominant victories in Belgium and China, the Finn arrived in Brazil for the final race of the season still in the running.

Seven points adrift of Hamilton, and three shy of Alonso - he needed a victory to seal the deal. He had history on his side, however. Back in 1986 - the last time three men were still in contention at the season finale - outsider Alain Prost had taken the championship in Adelaide after a sterling drive for McLaren, pushing out Williams team mates Nigel Mansell and Nelson Piquet. In Sao Paulo, Raikkonen was favourite to win the race, but his title hopes would rest just as heavily on the performance of his rivals. But as with Prost, it all came together. He won the race, with team mate Massa protecting him in second. Alonso had no answer to the Ferraris’ pace and gearbox gremlins demoted Hamilton to seventh.

Despite Raikkonen’s title challenge taking some severe knocks in the early stages, the ‘Iceman’ has fought back with admirable determination. Against the odds, he has done it. By outstripping team mate Massa, taking on the might of the McLaren duo and muscling his way into the title showdown in Brazil, Raikkonen has shown himself not only to be a worthy replacement for Michael Schumacher at Ferrari, he has also proved himself a worthy world champion. Congratulations Kimi!"

Welcome Cronus!

Here I'd like to introduce a new member to my small family of technology gadgets. Meet my latest crush, my spanking new external hard drive, Cronus! It's about time I got one of these, to store all my sloppy series and camwhoring masterpieces, and for back up purposes. Probably the only reason I'm willing to spend a few hundred on this is because I just got some $$$ from PTPTN XD

Note to self: Keep large amounts of money out of reach, ie. in fixed deposit, because having money is a catalyst in stimulating evil shopping spree thoughts. Oh dear, I should forget about spending it on the perfume I love so much, new shoes, and new bags. People, please keep me away from shopping malls!

My beautiful Cronus. It contains a 120GB Western Digital HDD with 3 years warranty, Rm 235.

The beautiful, white, 2.5 inches Cooler Master casing Rm 75, that comes with a stylish insulating carrier, it's very own cleaning cloth, iron- meshed sides silent cooling design, shock absorbing features and 1 year warranty. Isn't it so shiny and lovely, that you just cannot resist it?

The total was supposed to come up to Rm 314, but the kind salesman let me have it at Rm310. Imagine that previously some mean salesman tried to sell me the same casing and Samsung HDD for Rm330. Evil Low Yat fella. I know I splurged a little on the casing, but knowing myself, a regular, low quality, ugly casing just won't do for a vain klutz like me. I need the extra protection, to protect the HDD from myself. Teeheehee~

Credits go to dear Fluffy, who drove me there, bargained, enquired and wasted time to entertain his dumdum girlfriend all afternoon =) I'm a happy girl.

Mom's recovery

I wish to send out a simple thank you note to all who have supported our family, during the past week or so. It is in these moments that we truly appreciate having real friends who help us go through the rough bits of our lives.

For those in the dark, lately, my mom has been diagnosed with hypertension, hyperthyroid and lumps in her breasts. This led to a major change in her lifestyle, and a recommended surgery following clinical confirmation of the lump.

Mom has recovered from the surgery pretty well, and is off running her daily errands as usual. There is basically no significant changes in her boob size =P Further lab analysis concluded that the mass removed is a normal fibroid, or a benign tumor that should not be of any concern. She's on other medications and supplements for her other conditions right now.

The recent body checkup at Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC) revealed so many underlying conditions, that we were previously unaware about. So I urge everyone to please go for regular checkups, for health's sake. Perhaps, being aware of all these stuff, has made everyone of us more conscious about what we're doing to our body. The food we make ourselves eat, the conditions we force our own body to go through. It's time to remember that we're not God, and our body really is very vulnerable. Now that she's eating better, exercising more, learning new ways to control her condition, she feel healthier than before, and feeling good about herself again.

Breast Cancer is becoming a freakishly common affair among us now. Recently, I received generous support from friends who comforted my anxiety with real life stories, about people around them who are survivors. It goes to show that everyone, even men, are at risk. It can be prevented with early detection, so please, advise the people you know to go for frequent mammograms.

Again, I'm so glad I have good buddies who hang with me through these times, especially my beloved Fluffy and his family, my wonderful housemates, and other close friends of mine. I love you guys so much, really appreciate your efforts and kind words. Muax!

Meanwhile, please, please, PLEASE eat healthy, live healthy! Don't we all want to live long enough to see who loses all their white hair (or real teeth) first?

Freakish Semenyih

I'm grumpy. Grumpy, grumpy, grumpy. Got woken up at an ungodly hour, 6 in the morning today! The house behind has a shrieking child crying his tiny lungs out in the wee hours of the morning. But boy oh boy, those are some powerful lungs, penetrating through walls and curtains into my previously serene room. Just to complete the equation, Mom scolded as loud, if not louder too. I like kids, but I'm not fond of parents that has no control over their child. ANNOYING~~~! Those cries sounded extremely awful, it sounds like abuse. It rang through my head all day, distracting my concentration in class, troubling my thoughts.

And that's not the only freakish thing happening in Bandar Sunway Semenyih. If you haven't heard, there was nearly a RAPE CASE in Phase 2. Apparently, some horny Indian fellow came disguised as a plumber in this house. The tenants, were mostly out, except for a female postgrad. That SoB tried to rape her, threatening her with a knife. Thank goodness she was a genius, by faking an asthma attack the guy was frightened to bits, and drop the knife. Our heroine then picked up the knife, chasing the criminal out of the compound. That, is really a close call. I can't guarantee that it's an accurate account of the incident, because when the words get around, people often tend to deviate from the truth.

On another completely different location, our university, there was also an accident, involving a Toyota Vios, which turned turtle right beside the homes of The Ducks of Nottingham. Some say it belonged to a lecturer, while the others suggest a female undergrad. That's a reckless driver for sure. By the way, there was no collision. Only one car that has managed to flip itself upside down. How many ways can you drive a car in the narrow, bump-full, windy road in the university? I don't understand how it happened, but it's freaky.

What is this place that I'm living in? I want to make it out of here alive... *cry*
