Sungguh kurang sopan..

I've been tagged by Cik Alia apparently, so here..
RULES: People who are tagged should write a blog post of 6 weird things about them as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says 'you are tagged' in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

1. Ants makes me itch. I'm not sure if it's a physical thing or more of a psychological thing because they don't even have to bite me to make me itch.. just looking at them gave me the strong urge to scratch my arms or legs. Ants-- are horrifyingly annoying like that.

2. I beat myself up when I forget about a TV show that I really wanted to watch. Really. Sometimes I feel like my heart dropped a few inches inside the rib cage. There were times when I actually cried for not being in front of the telly.. even though I was actually having a good time outdoors!

3. I cannot say how much I want a pair of Christian Louboutin's shoes! I must've pictured myself in one at least once a day! I don't know.. it is an odd sort of a goal I think. Something I need to achieve someday. Is it weird? I don't know. Maybe it isn't so weird for a female - wanting shoes.

4. I second-guesses people under the Scorpio sign. I know, that's almost racism but it's really not! I always have this feeling when I came in contact with a Scorpio. I don't hate them.. nor dislike them. My mom's a Scorpio! (and though we rarely see things eye to eye but 'dislike' and 'hate' is too much of a strong word.) I've had a good friend who was a Scorpio and she was nice.
But I don't know.. I just.. have this heaviness that if there is anyone that could murder me in my sleep, it'd be a Scorpio.

5. Ohh, everytime I meet a new person, I'd ask their zodiac sign. It usually came up first before their names. I also remember my friends by it. Date of birth - not so much, but I try.
My close friends knew me too well by now that everytime they told me about their other friends, and I asked "what is he/she?", they'd respond by the zodiac sign. (Instead of something else that actually mattered, like their job for instance.)

6. I have a hard time focusing on people's eyes when they talk. It's not that I choose to look at a different part of their body -- it's just hard. I always feel like there's a higher level of seriousness when I look into their eyes and it makes me slightly uncomfortable. I usually look at their lips. I don't mean to be somewhat-sexual in any way, but I find it amusing to watch their teeth. Plus, sometimes I need the visual aid since my ears are a little stubborn, they just refuse to focus on the other person's voice sometimes.

6 persons whom I will tag.. you know, it's times like this when I wish I had more friends! haha.
Bahijah, Ana, Aisyah, Hanis.. and Dar too since he's also my friend (not just Alia's! hahhaha!) Ohh! And Ablen so he'd have something to write on his blog.. maybe.. someday!

Anyway, just for notes.. I had spent the afternoon with Alia. We just hung out and had lunch (a late one) in Secret Recipe, SACC Mall.. and completely blew our purses! It's scary how much we spend when we're around each other! hahhahaha!
Good times, though.

OMG! It's almost March!!!

Back in Shah Alam.

I cried.. and cried. I just couldn't take it, pretending I was all macho and truly convince myself it was just a show.. last week's of Grey's Anatomy was friggin' intense!! God! It was unbelievable! It was.. painfully sad and I'm still tearing up right now. Can't wait to find out what'll happen this week.. I just.. can't get around Derek's and Christina's grief.

Hey everyone. I am now home, and so is my sister - for good. Or at least for the time being.

So you know when you feel like you're dreaming.. (I think I'm going famous with this "dreams"-metaphor stuff) It was 7 am yesterday.. (I think it was yesterday!) Anton was driving me and my sister through the streets of Holland towards Schiphol Airport when I just thought.. How did I get here?
Surely, I was in an airplane two weeks before but just.. how? Sometimes I feel like asking complete strangers, "Why me exactly?"

Like in dreams, everyone knew what they are going to do next - except you. You are the only person who decides what you're going to do. So maybe if there is any chance you could interact with everyone else, they could tell you what you're supposed to do. Maybe we could ask them life mysteries and actually get the answers, yeah?

Anyway, I was never good at interpreting dreams. I just note them down and wait it out until one day things just somehow clicked and those sleepy memories had somehow seemed like an epiphany in a foreign language of sorts.
So I say.. I will have no choice but to wait it out just like always. I'll just see what happens next, and I will keep you posted.

Oh by the way, just so you know I wasn't trying to sound ungrateful. This is my way of saying how grateful I am for my luck and that I am still disbelieving the ludicrousity of my life slacking.

I had a considerably nice flight. Food was terrible, for the first time I agreed with the cliche about airplane meals but I had a really nice seat mate so that makes up for everything in my book! His name was Greg, American, forty-nine (I swear I am not the "old man attractor" like Dida likes to say!) a Leo and spends 27 hours every two weeks on a plane from The States, transit in Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur and again to Ho Chi Minh city. I was over-friendly I think! I now even know that his wife is a Virgo! haha!

I saw Alia a few hours after I got home. We got lunch and on the way back we made a quick stop at Alam Sentral since Alia had wanted to send her shoes to be repaired. I stayed at the car... and fell asleep!! hahahahha! Alia had to shake the car to wake me up and let her in. (Sorry - again Cik Alia!!)

Okay, I have to go. Need to catch up on all of my favourite shows!
(Fine, sleep too..)

Back in Rotterdam.

Goede avond! (10:25 PM here!)

We're back from Frankfurt and Berlin.. and what have I learnt?
I believe that I am at the age of finding a good sugar-daddy since I keep attracting old men all over Europe!
One asked for my email address at the subway when all the while he had been talking to my sister! Seriously.

I like Berlin. We like Berlin.
Now I should probably start packing. We're flying back to Malaysia this Wednesday and good byeee Europe 'til God knows when..

Friday, February 16, 2007


I know it's just horrible (in a way) of me to say this but I am GLAD that I'll be coming home this Wednesday. I NEED my TV fix!!
Need.. need... need.. NEED!!
Especially now that I've read their reviews!! Aaaaaahhh!!! I want to watch House, Heroes, One Tree Hill.. The Office! And Grey's Anatomy especially!! Aaaaaahhhhh!!!!!
Why did Dida only get dial-up! If only she got dsl.. or what ever it is called. Aaaahh!! I just can't stop screaming and whining! I WANT MY SHOWS!!

On a different note, we are heading to Frankfurt today. Berlin tomorrow.
But I still want my shows. heh!

The search is over!

I found the dress! I found the dress I've been looking for the past two days! Cheers!! Dida was right about them keeping some clothes off the rack.
I went to Dordrecht earlier and didn't find the dress there. Tired (mentally), I went back to Rotterdam to do my "chores". (Y'know.. going to the market/supermarket getting groceries.)

I had just came out from C&A returning the earrings I bought yesterday since one of its stones had gone missing and went into H&M, with heaviness in my heart; preparing for yet another disappointment.. calculating how many H&M stores that I might have to look through when we get to Berlin.

I walked towards the part of the store where I saw size-42 yesterday and to my surprise, there were a couple of sleeves on the rack! The first one I saw was size 38 so frantically I flipped the hangers one by one.
38 - 42 - 40 - 42 - 36!!!!!
The last one!! *manic laugh* I grabbed it.. went to the paskamer (fitting room) just to make sure.. spent more time than I should in there satisfying my vanity.. and happily almost-skipped towards the cashier! heehee.
I have now lost any reason to shop for myself. (Except maybe.. for the perfect little shoes? ahhahahahaha!! Naah.) I am happily content.

Afterwards I had went to the market to find some coccles. On my way back, I saw this one old man dancing horribly to the song that was playing at the record stall. It was really horrendous; American Idol-worthy. But he was perfectly happy doing what he likes. Not a care in the world. Makes me think, I want to be like him when I'm old..
Tua ganyut tak sedar diri. ahahahahhahahahahaha!!!!!

22 Years and 2 Months.

I am officially -- that old.
So what have I learned so far?

1. Although many writers find smoking helps, it does not work for me. So happens that the lighter my head gets, the further ideas flew away from my thoughts. It didn't help that I have a history of asthma either. But I must note that somehow it manages to help my bowel movement -- same as coffee. haha!
This means that I shall continue on my quest to find the perfect vice.

2. I am a pretty good secret keeper. The question remains, how good is the secret for me to listen and take heed of it in the first place?

3. I'm pretty sure that I can't be bought. I make it a mental note when somebody got me something. Sure, I'm a little nicer to them -- but not too much. haha!

4. Even though I rarely put on anything in PINK, I still can't help looking when I walk pass them. It's a mistery, I think! I am like a fly and the colour pink is the light.

I am such a slow learner, aren't I? I could only think of four things.. how horrible.
Anyway.. this has been..the best weekend ever!

We went to Amsterdam yesterday and found a couple of things that we really liked. So we got them, ate at our favourite kebab place and also went to Hard Rock Cafe since Dida had wanted to get some tees for a couple of her friends.
Then there it was.. the cutest pin ever! *manic laugh* It's the Valentine's Day pin and I just had to have it!

Today I went on a search to find a particular dress that I saw in H&M while we were in Amsterdam. Unfortunately they ran out of my size -- in all 5 stores that we found! The same goes for Rotterdam.. I went to all 4 stores that I can think of and only one of them had that dress -- in size 42!! Urrgh! Frustrating.

I'll possibly head to Dordrecht tomorrow. Just going crazy..
I just checked.. there's 24 stores in Berlin. heh!
We had cancelled Dubai by the way.

Super Saturday Shopping!

Good evening!

It's 9:08 pm over here and I am trying to tend to my achy feet. Just "trying" because I don't really know what I should do with it..

jualan lambak di ZARA
Dida and I went to Antwerpen (also known as Antwerp) today for two reasons;
1. Belgian waffles,
2. shopping!!
It almost makes no sense for us to travel to another country to shop but that's what we did! -- and it was totally worth it, getting rained and achy feet and all.

Dida spent a LOT today and no.. it wasn't just for me. I just got a jacket (can't help myself, it was relatively cheap!!) and a pair of polka-dot socks. haha!
What's amazing about our day was the sale in ZARA. The prices were so low, it was beyond our comprehension! Can you imagine, paying less than €8 for a pair of corduroy pants?? It was crazy! Never before I see a tee in ZARA selling for €4.. that's less than RM20!! We just couldn't help getting pretty hysterical while we were looking through the rows of jackets. Dida bought one for me.. and Nina! (The tag was from Nina's jacket.)

Well, it was fun. It's not like you could shop in ZARA everyday and come out like you had just shopped in Giant Supermarket! heehee. We're probably going to Amsterdam tomorrow to shop some more -- depends on how well our feet recovers. We'll probably end up just catching a movie around here though.

Oh, remember the other day about the snow? Well, it completely disappeared the day after. Kinda sad actually. Wish it had lasted longer..

Just an update.

Hey there!

You know when some days things are happening so fast around you that you had to actually pinch yourself to make sure that you hadn't accidentally dozed off and dreaming everything up again? I am having that.
Yesterday I was a bum at home. Today, I am a bum in Europe.

It's 10:36 am, I have arrived, safe and soundly to my sister's place in Rotterdam. The wind was friggin' cold as we were heading towards the building that I almost lost every bit of feeling on my legs. It's -1 degrees Celcius over here and it had just started SNOWING!!
Honestly, with the snow and the strong wind.. it looked somewhat like a blizzard! But then again, this is only my first time seeing snow so what do I know! Just pardon me for the exaggeration. Can't help being amazed with this. Do people actually go out when it snows?

I found the train from Schiphol to Rotterdam Centraal quite alright. Somehow being a cow isn't on today's schedule. Then Dida came to pick me up a half an hour late which made me quite keen to spend a LOT of her money, shopping; and the amazing thing is, she's already given me the green light!!! *manic laugh*
Seriously, she's completely cuckoo.
Okay well, I will have to clean up those dishes and run some errands. Maybe after I have a bit of a lie down and the snow stops looking so much like a blizzard.

My flight here was alright. I was seated at the aisle, much to my dismay.. plus, the possibly-Russian couple that was sitting next to me was completely unfriendly and had very small bladders. At one point of the flight, the man next to me asked me if I'd like to switch seats to one that is a few rows behind, which I answered with "Why would I want to do that?" My horoscope was freakishly correct about that bit of my travelling.

But I must also note that my seat was actually right next to the kitchen; which sounded bad, but isn't really! Since I can rarely sleep anyway, the hustle of the air-hostess was not too much of a disturbance for me. It's even cool that they were all keen to cater to my needs! I was very well fed and watered the whole time. The fact that there weren't too many Malaysians on the flight, let alone around the section I was seated in, helps - a LOT!
Very lucky, I was.. heehee. Oh! I was also just three seats behind the exit. So having the boring seat-mates was not so bad after all..

Alright, enough of that.
I will write again when there's a need to. (On my behalf.. naturally!)

Leaving on a jetplane.


Firstly, I hope your eyes aren't swirling too much from the excessive PINK! You know.. February.. tends to get me a bit cuckoo sometimes. The fixation over red and pink is rather contagious!

Okay. So.. 3 a.m. yesterday my nutty sister called and asked me to come to her place (yes, she did make it sound like she's only 20 minutes' drive away) because she was on the verge of breaking down. Thus, after a very busy day for me and my dad; getting tickets, exchanging currencies..
I will be flying off to Amsterdam later today.

Now.. never, I say NEVER by any means.. underestimate the spontaneity of a Sagittarian.

I must also note that that Kabalarian Philosophy analyzation of my name had turned out pretty freaky. I am not complaining, of course.. but I'd hate to think that I will only get ahead by my influences. That's just.. Well, a pussy's way to live a life. So! I am definitely in need of a character change.

I wonder when Malaysian composers are going to start making songs that sounds like this. Again, don't ask me what the lyrics meant.. This is among the rarest songs that I love just for their tunes and this one is climbing up on the list.

Alright! I will need to collect my thoughts before I start pre-packing the things that I need to bring with me.
So.. be back in a jiffy! (That being in about 2 weeks..)

Of comedy and tragedy.

Went to see Stranger Than Fiction today. I really loved it. I have to say that I never liked Will Ferell but this film really changed my view of him. (Just like how Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind changed my view on Jim Carrey -- he can actually.. really act!) Anyway, Stranger Than Fiction is on my favourites' list now.

Been going back to Bukit Kapar this past few days; getting ready for Maya's engagement party (if you may let me call it that.) A few of us were sitting around at tea time on Thursday when my dad somehow pondered about how the children got so tall. (If you've seen the family.. we're not exactly in the height range of average Malays.) Then Adam said how it's sad for Tau since among the elder male cousins.. he is the shortest. The rest of us just laughed.
Mind you, shortest being 175 centimetres.
Just for notes: Maya, Tau, Adam (and Nadia) are siblings. They're the children of my father's 3rd brother, Cik Kamal.

Also.. later that day I found out that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be out this July 21st!! Naturally, I grabbed my phone and texted in such speed that it would have embarassed The Flash.
So yes.. I've made some plans for that day, assuming that Kinokuniya will be holding a launching the likes of what they had done for the past two installments.

This week's episode of House is my favourite so far. It's not as "medical" as usual.. but I just love all the conversations in it. Imagine conversations between House and Wilson being extended to the entire show; morality, philosophies.. ideas. My kind of thing.

Speaking of TVs, congratulations to Jo Jer and Zabrina for being the first all-female team to win The Amazing Race Asia!! I knew I wasn't rooting for them in vain! hahha.

Probably should sleep now. My dad wants us to leave the house by 7:30 am. I'm going to have to be the 2nd photographer for Maya's thing tomorrow, with Aris (yet another cousin.. we actually have a pretty big family) being the 1st. He's taking with his digital camera, while I'm going old school with the films - as always.
I probably should remind Aris that we should be taking a lot of photos of each other. If not, people wouldn't believe we were even there! Like the time when I took pictures for Cik Mi's engagement; even my father had forgotten to introduce me to the girl's family. It's incredibly depressing actually. Nobody knows that's how I feel - which is of course, making it more depressing to be doing this for the second time.
Then again, I should stop thinking about myself for one second.

Hey, can I say that I'm an Ugly Duckling? Well, the last time I went out with Alia, Farah and Zaki, they coincidentally wore white while I had my black top on. But now come to think of it, I am rather different from my family, character-wise. A little free.. a little wild.. and let's face it - I am not a grown up. So how ever can I possibly turn into the swan that I'm supposed to be?
(Come on, nobody thinks they're going to be a duck forever, right? Except of course maybe.. if they're the Mighty Ducks! hahha!)

Have a good one everybody.
