Unlikely customer



I got a surprise this morning when I went to the supermarket. There was this little bird wondering around the place looking for food....hahahaha....it must have had a hard time finding food outside so it decided to find something to eat inside the supermarket instead ! Poor thing! huhu!

Morning Glory



I love all three actors above. Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams. I saw this movie for the first time today on Astro and I wanna watch it again. Just love it!! So inspiring, so funny, so intelligent, so everything. Just love everything about it. 

I knew it was a good movie the minute I saw the cast and I just had to watch it. I'm glad I did. The character played by Rachel McAdams in this movie, is super awesome. I can relate to what she is going through. Having a mother who doesn't see her potential and wanting her to change jobs.....and her believe in herself that is so great that it doesn't matter to her what her mother thinks coz she knows her own potential and what she can do as long as she is given the opportunity. She knows that she can excel in the job she loves doing most.

It's about going for your dreams and never giving up no matter what. I can see the passion, the drive, the hard work, the strong heart that she has in this movie. Delivered beautifully by Rachel McAdams. :)

Glitterati no more


I'm pretty upset with Nuffnang right now. Just found out that I'm no longer a Glitterati member of Nuffnang and now I'm just an ordinary, non exclusive member and I have no idea why. No clue whatsoever. They didn't notify me why I have been reverted to this status.

I thought that if I get visitors to all my blogs everyday, then there wouldn't be a problem. But perhaps ....(ok, this is just my guess) , perhaps, it's because I don't update on one or two blogs often enough. I am more focused on two blogs and the other two I only update once in every few months or so. So maybe....just mayyyyyybeeeeeeeee......THAT'S the reason. I don't really know. And I also guessed that it's because one of my blogs sometimes have no unique visitors on certain days......only on certain days ok.....not to say that it doesn't have any unique visitors for the whole month. So that's why I think it's unfair for them to do this to me. 

I can't sacrifice the other two blogs by removing them just so that I'll get my Glitterati status again. I worked too hard to create them in the first place and I just can't simply remove them from the list all because of this issue. 

I've already wrote to them and addressed this issue.....hopefully I'll get an answer soon enough and hopefully they'll help me get my Glitterati status back. :( If not, then........LANTAKLAHHHHHH!!!! (Geram giler) hahahahaha. :D

Tosei Tandop



I went to have breakfast in town this morning at a new place located near Ukir Mall. It's location is just right beside Kopitiam, Ukir Mall. The place was recommended by my Mom's friend. They said that the tosei there tasted so nice, so me and my Mom went to check it out after our visit to the hospital. 

And to our surprise, it was really delicious. The tosei itself was just nice in taste....not too sour like some I've tasted before and the chutney was good too....but the best of all was the dhal! Special recipe from Kerala, India it seems! Well, that's what the tosei guy informed us. He said, his wife is from Kerala and in Kerala, that's how their dhal looks like and that's how they make it over there. Thick and light yellow in colour mixed with it's special spices. It tasted so good that you can even eat it on it's own.....(sounds like Gardenia's tagline doesn't it????  hahaha). :D

The couple are actually from Tandop.....and they were invited to do business at the new place by the owner of the restaurant because they are so good in making tosei. It seems that back in Tandop, their tosei are usually sold out by 8.00am!! So fast! That's how good their tosei is! I really think that they are God sent. :D Thank you God for sending them here to serve us yummy tosei haha! :D 

The only thing missing in this wonderful tosei is it's lack in crispiness...I like my tosei crispy and hot. But this one is a bit soft on the inside and lightly crisp on the outside. Oh! How can I forget the podi!! Yes! If there is podi, that would make a huge difference in the tosei eating experience hihihi! I haven't had podi with tosei in a long long long time. Miss it so much. We told the tosei guy that if his wife can make podi for us, it would be so great! So great I tell ya! haha! 

Hope to get the chance to go eat there again one of these days ;).

The good mood is back!

I was thinking writing "Nothing - Part 3" just now, coz then I could have a trilogy post or something hahahaha..... but naaaaaaaaahhhhhhh.......I definitely have something to write about for today's post. :)

First of all......I am deeply touched by the support I've gotten from from friends and readers of my blog for all their concerns whenever I suddenly can't write. I'm honestly very surprised. I didn't think it would be such a big of a deal if I wrote anything here or not. Your support and motivation is deeply appreciated. I can't thank everyone enough for this loving support.....you guys are just so kind to me ;). Ooohhh....I gotta mention this.....someone did offered to buy me a scooter just to cheer me up, coz I was such in a bad mood the past couple of days........ain't that the sweetest thing? Well, I sure thought it was....for me, it was not the offer, but the thought of it was enough to cheer me up the whole day. ;)

Kinda funny thinking back......I did told myself last year in Facebook how I felt like my life was too simple and I wanted to complicated the hell out of it this year. When I said that , I never knew that my wish would actually come true. Seriously......life is getting more and more complicated. And today I got a mail from the postman that will  make my life even more complicated if I choose to take the challenge. I can't share the info with everyone here just yet. I have to keep it a secret for a couple of weeks before I can share it here. It's going to be a tough decision to make and I pray to Allah that I whatever it is......it will be the best decision for me.

I gotta say.....I had a really good day today. From early morning till evening. Fully packed. I took the day off.....which is quite rare since I work almost 30 days a month....no break.....so it was nice to remove myself from my working room and go out and see Alor Setar. As if that was such a GREAT thing to do.....but believe me....I did enjoyed myself today with all the site seeing on my own. My feet hurts so bad right now from all the walking and driving though huhuhuhu. 

It rained so heavily in the afternoon....and I was trapped in the supermarket. I wanted to go home earlier coz I was already tired but couldn't. The car was parked so far away from where I was at......and yes....I forgot to bring the umbrella with me. I didn't want to walk to the car in the rain and get wet...so I just window shop some more till there there was nothing left to see. Thank God the rain stopped just in time. Otherwise I don't know how I was going to walk to my car and drive home. I always sound so pathetic and exaggerated don't I?? haha....but....I am telling you the truth here....haha :D. 

I received a wonderful news today that someone from far away is coming over to Malaysia....and better yet, coming to Alor Setar just to see me and learn how to quill from me. It's confirmed! She's coming next month! Yay! I can't wait to meet her! I feel so honoured that someone like her is willing to take so much trouble just to learn how to do quilling....I'll definitely blog about it hihihi! ;)

So many good things happened today......BIG SMILE on my face right now. ;)

Sleeping styles



I got this photo of sleeping styles from my friend's Facebook post today. It's so interesting to see the different types of sleeping styles. 

I like to sleep in different styles depending on my mood or depending on the situation. For me, it would be number 1, 3, 8 and 10. 

I used to love sleeping like number 1. But now, it's not possible anymore. Because of my health condition, I would suffocate to death if I would sleep like that these days. How I miss sleeping like that with both my arms spread across the bed like that. Same goes with number 3. Both sleeping styles are so comfortable........but not anymore nowadays.  :(

I used to sleep like number 4 way back when I was a little girl but ever since I found out that it was bad for my diaphragm....for my lungs....for my heart.... if I were to sleep like that, I never slept like that again....EVER.

Then there's number 8. I sleep like that a lot now. It's the only way I can breathe while I'm sleeping. Although it looks something like number 7, I can never sleep like number 7 because it looks like too controlled....too ladylike.....too stiff....not relaxed like number 8.  

Number 10!! Yes......I have been sleeping like that since God knows when. I remember when I was little.....my Dad used to come into my room just to check if I was still alive....hahaha....coz I would cover myself up with the blanket up to my head. All closed up...all wrapped up in the blanket. All because I was so scared of the dark. He would pull the blanket away from my head so that I can breathe better.....and the minute he leaves the room, I would pull it back up...hahahaha. He gave up checking after a few years LOL! :D. I would normally sleep like that if I am sleeping alone in the room. Otherwise, number 8 would be the best choice of sleeping style for me :D.

So what is your sleeping style like? ;) Can you find it at the photo above or is it totally different? :)

Thinking too much




My own personal view: I hate to admit it.....but I have to say that what he is saying is kinda true. :P I have realised this a long time ago  about myself and have been working on trying to not over think things too much. Because I know for a fact that not only guys can't stand it when girls do that......but I can't stand it either. It's exhausting and annoying.

Scooter fever


Since I can't afford to get myself a Mini Cooper anytime soon or anytime this year......I am seriously thinking about getting myself a scooter. I don't know what came over me the past few days but I'm just so fixated about getting one this year. 

I would need to go and get a license first to ride a bike. Sigh. Lots to do if I really want to do this. >.<

I would love to get a scooter that looks just like the photo above. I wonder if I can get something like that here in Alor Setar. I want a new one.......not a second hand scooter. That scooter looks so retro.....so cute....I can just imagine myself riding it in town. It would be so cool! haha! If I can't get something like that.....perhaps I can get something else....another type or brand of scooter ......but I still haven't the slightest clue of what's good in the market these days.......any suggestions?? :)

Weather report

The weather lately over here in Alor Setar has been pretty extreme. Extremely hot during the day and raining extremely heavy during the evenings till late in the night. Even as I am writing right now the rain is getting heavier and heavier.....and I have to write as fast as I can because I am afraid of the thunder and lightnings. Afraid that it might effect the internet connection. If it continues to rain heavily like this everyday I might have to blog during the day instead.

I'm just worried whenever it rains so heavily like this....worried if it floods. Hopefully we will be safe from that this year and in future. Really don't want to go through it again. Phobia. The heat gets very bad especially in the afternoons. Feels like my skin is being cooked slowly if I am directly under the sun. I try to avoid going out at that time but sometimes it's unavoidable. Gotta make sure I put on enough sunblock for protection. But to be honest, I never use any. :P I only put on lots of aloe vera gel on my face and hands.....wonder if that would be sufficient. >.<

Looks vs real age

Last minute posting here for today. I've been really busy today. From morning till night time. Fully packed! Had great fun since morning. Especially great this morning because somebody thinks that I am much younger than my real age. This kinda thing been happening a lot lately. I wonder why. A lot of people think I'm still studying.....I was even asked recently at a bookshop if I was going to pay for the things I bought using the school voucher. I was like totally shocked. Must be something wrong with their eyes?? Or maybe it's my mannerism that plays a part too and not just my looks? I don't act my age?? Perhaps. ;)

2 posts per day

I suddenly realised that I have to make another post for today all because I missed the post on the 14th. So I already posted one at midnight and now I have to post another one for the actual 15th. If you are reading this and finding what I'm saying is confusing you. Please stop reading. Hahahaha! Don't try to crack your head figuring out what I'm trying to say coz only I understand what I'm trying to say sometimes. Yes....sometimes. Sometimes, even I don't get what I'm trying to say......coz I'm just too smart for myself. LOL! :D

Current situation......I'm feeling like I'm in a freezer coz the air cond is on in my room and it's a good thing coz I can't concentrate on work if it's hot here and as usual the working table is a mess. If it's not in a mess, then it's not my table. Got it? LOL! :D I just had to have the air cond on coz the weather here these days is freaking hot. I start to have hallucinations if I don't have it on. :D

It just hit me how stressful posting here each day can be especially if I have nothing much to tell other than how much paper I've shred since morning. :D Believe me.....I shred a lot of paper since morning. A LOT! Thousands and thousands of them. Got some deliveries to make tomorrow too....that's why I've been shredding a lot of paper.....it's like never ending......it just keeps coming....and I just can't stop.

My body is aching all over. Don't feel too good today. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be ok. Got lots to do tomorrow. I have a feeling that tomorrow is going to be a very exciting day :). Perhaps, tomorrow I'll have much to write about here.....hmmmmm.......we shall see hihihiihihi.....till then! ;)

About driving

Owhhhh God.....I missed the date!!!! Now this means that I have to make 2 posts for 15th of February to make up for the post I missed on the 14th. :( Ok.....below was what I was writing about before I missed the time to post it just now huhuhuu.........

Post for 14th of February 2012

Now I get it. Things are beginning to seem so clear to me now. Now I know why my Mom was so upset with me before.

When I was staying in KL years ago, I didn't drive much. I did try to drive there. But was a bit scared of the traffic in KL. Ok.....who am I trying to kid here......I was damn scared of the traffic there! haha!                        

I did have a drivers license and I was already driving around in Alor Setar before I went to live in KL so I thought that I was good enough to drive there. But I let my fear get the best of me. So for years staying in KL, I didn't drive and my driving skills went rusty.

When I moved back to Alor Setar in 2009, at first I didn't drive either and that really upset my Mom a lot because that means wherever I needed to go, she had to take me there. So annoying right? I didn't have the guts to drive again. It's been so long that I stopped driving that I felt so scared to drive again.

But when she got really sick, that's when I was forced to drive again. It was so damn scary at first. I had to pull myself together and just do it! No matter how scary it was....I knew I just had to do it. Somebody had to take her to the doctor.....somebody had to get food....somebody had to go and pay the bills and bla bla bla.... And I'm so glad now that I did it. Now I got my skills back and am no longer scared of driving. 

I can go wherever I want to, when I want to, at any time of the day. No more issues. 

So you see.....you see how important it is to know how to drive? How important it is to be mobile? To be independent?? You can't keep depending on others to take you to the places you want to be. And honestly, staying in Alor Setar, with the public transportation being so lousy unlike in KL where I can get around places with their LRTS and buses, I need to be able to drive here or otherwise, it would be hell for me.

I'm so thankful that my Mom pushed me to learn how to drive so many years ago. Because I just can't imagine not being able to drive now. It's huge loss for those who don't. Seriously.

Hahahaha....I put today's date as the title post again hahahahaha.......though it's not a pretty number, do I look like I care? hahahaha :D As long as there is a title for this post, it's fine with me ;).

Seriously so tired today but feeling so satisfied because I managed to finish my swap project today. They are all done! Yay! Now I can concentrate on other projects for this week. I can't wait to post about the swap this coming Thursday. Haven't taken photos of them yet, will do all that tomorrow. :)

I gotta say....whoever invented the automatic washing machine is a genius and I love you! hahaha! If it wasn't for the invention, I probably have to waste a lot of time washing clothes. And honestly I just don't have the energy to spend on washing clothes manually anymore. I need to conserve my energy for other important things in my life...hahaha. So thank you very much, whoever you are. :D

I haven't been doing laundry for......errrrr.......for quite a while and I noticed a lot of empty spaces in my drawers. I've been taking and taking and taking clothes from my drawers and not washing and washing and washing them. Then I realised I have to wash them today otherwise I won't have anymore pajamas to wear tonight LOL!! So I'm glad I have something to wear tonight :D.

I've been neglecting a lot of things lately. This is a reason why I can't have pets. Was thinking of getting one this year. But, now I know I really can't. I would probably won't have time for it. I know what it's like to have pets. I've been there, done that years ago. And they need your full attention. Attention I can't give them right now. So....getting a pet this year is a big no no.

Ok....that's all for today. I'm just too super happy and excited about my new project that so much so that it's all I think about lately.  I can't wait to blog about it soon! ;)

Here I am....not able to concentrate on what to write right now.....coz my brain is so focused on the swap project I'm doing for my students. I've already finished one and I just got one more to do. I'm pretty happy about it because suddenly I just love what I did for the swap. It's something I've never done before. And suddenly, that's all I feel like doing for the rest of the year! Hah!! I don't feel like making cards anymore all of a sudden. What's wrong with me???!! I guess I just got distracted? Perhaps. Hopefully not for long. 

But seriously......I don't feel like making cards at all right now. :(

Crochet video tutorial

It's all about making someone smile. And that someone happens to be a very good friend of mine, CC Peyton. I made this video just for her because she was curious to know how my aunt did the criss cross crochet pattern on the pouch that my aunt made for her last Christmas.

In the beginning I was thinking of scanning the pattern from the crochet book but since my aunt made some changes to the original pattern, it would be difficult for me to explain to her how my aunt did it. So, we thought that it would be a great idea if I would do a video tutorial instead. All I did was took a video of my aunt doing that criss cross pattern for my dear friend to see. It's just that particular part that she is curious about so that's all we did.

Hopefully she'll get the idea once she views the video and will be able to make that criss cross pattern for her own crochet project soon. ;) All the best to you dear CC! ;)

If only you could see the mess on my working table right now. I dare not take a photo of it and show you coz that would be truly embarrassing. It's full of shredded paper!! There's shredded paper everywhere. On the table, on the racks, on the floor, on the computer, on the lap table, on the boxes, on my pajamas, everywhere! There's bits and pieces of the shredded paper all over the house. Can find it in the living room....in the kitchen and in the bedroom. 

I'm in the midst of preparing some orders for next week's delivery. It's getting pretty chaotic here trying to prepare them all by myself. Funny thing is, I'm used to the chaos. It's the adrenalin rush that makes it more interesting I suppose. The panic look on my face, the shaky hands, etc....it's what I do best hahahaha! :D

Snap your fingers

What can I say for today.

Definitely a lot of surprises.

One of the many many surprises was.... Emir was here!! Met him today with his cute mother, my dear Aleen hihihihi. Such a nice surprise indeed. Didn't think that I would meet him again so soon. Anyways, it was a good surprise :)

Then, came another surprise. Emir actually remembered how to snap his fingers whenever he sees the fish at our house. I taught him to do that last year. I don't know what I was thinking when I taught him that. Who says that you have to snap your fingers if you want to attract the fish??? Who does that anyways??? hahaha! Silly Aunt Lin! And now he seems to remember it so well and kept trying to snap his little teeny weeny fingers whenever he sees the fish swimming in the aquarium. Although he tried very hard, his tiny fingers are not capable of making any sound whenever he tries to snap it. So in frustration, he claps his hands instead to attract the fish. Awwwwwww......he is so cute!! I melted again. ;)

Birthday lunch


Was out for lunch today, celebrating my aunt's birthday. Ooooppps.....I can't remember  exactly how old she is. But I do know that she is in her late 60s. Had lunch at a new place. A new hotel in Alor Setar called New Regent. It used to be called the Regent. It was small hotel before, my Mom's friend used to run the place but now with the new owner, they expanded the hotel and did a full renovation to the whole place. It looks great! They are open for business for quite sometime now after the new renovation but only now do we get to go and eat there. I love the new place and the new interior looks pretty nice. I like it. I also like the food there. I think I'll be going there again hihihihi....definitely!
