Read between the lines

You need no search at the self-help shelves to understand life and your own self, even a simple folktale can be an ultimate eye-opener if you're just willing to read between the lines .

Learn and never ever stop

Don't count the profit by the amount of money you receive or kill to receive a certificate by the end of every undertaking. Learn sincerely, generously, you will never know when you might need what

It's simple

In a materialistic world in which everyone strives and chases after money, I'd like to work for satisfaction.

Old habits die hard

The habits that we pick up at some point of time once fossilized within us won't leave us. Just like a tattoo, we take them everywhere we go, for as long as we live.

Love Thyself

Just like a good book with a well-illustrated cover, the person you are should overpower youself more than your gorgeous hair and hour-glass curves (which is the ultimate stereotype surely), and that is the real deal!

Goodbye and Hello

2012 is just a few hours away and you all probably have guessed that this is going to be about the new beginning which is kick starting real soon.

Well I tell you what, you judged me right!

It's about time we reflect things and recall those good and bad moments that hit or maybe ran across us along the road. To laugh at those deadly dreadful curve balls thrown which seem to be nowhere at last, is indeed a great pleasure that can even beat the delight of having fries from Carl's Jr.

We came pass everything right? Finally!

The strength and patience that appeared to be out of reach at some nerve wrecking moments, certainly did arm us to the other side of the shore with sturdy stride. This moment call it a miracle, for we have captured something that appeared as lethal as pulling the trigger in a frame embossed memories. A heads up without a doubt!

Many say, the past is nothing but a series of events accompanied by lessons .

For me though, they all comes down to one. A lesson that jolly teach  us the most soothing fact about life, things get better and everything heals. Thanks to the medicine of no formula, the mighty TIME.
literally....

Let's move on to the part where listing and mind boggling activities peekaboo.
Resolutions!

Point blank, resolutions for me are overnight-formed-most-exaggerated-ideas that deserve to be stepped on and walked pass. It perhaps requires a spit as well but since I'm a calm human after a failure, I pass on that.

Lucky for those who are still swirling in my circle, I'm not judging anyone who makes a list of it because I know I might lose half if I were to activate such modes.

Well nothing so bad about resolutions and I totally bow to the idea of it. You know, making a change, transforming thyself, for a better year, for a loved one and all those yada yada that can put an insomniac into sleep. Everything is good and that insomniac thingy is genius , I know! Yet as the saying goes one man's meat is another man's poison.

Moot; The poison thingy sounds so serious isn't it? Creepy....

Not to digress further, back on resolutions. They are just not for me you know.. or you don't?

I'm the type who wakes up every morning ( like everybody else of course) with no plans or clear vision about my life and goes off to bed( just like everybody else) with the same attitude. Obviously I'm the least embarrassed about the published fact since I absolutely gloat my coolness ( selection of this word is made after clear understanding of its meaning from 3 different dictionaries) like a pair of Chanel boots. Believe it! Or else read the rest.

I live for today and That's me. I go with the flow but at the same time I do perform changes as and when necessary. I might not be the one who is all armed and shielded but my strategy still posses it's uniqueness, has its rationale and never miss the morale part.

I just want to always be myself, that's for 2012 and the 'upcomings'.

So let's welcome the new journey with a big smile and much passion , for when we say goodbye to it giving way to another awesome year someone's gonna cry soo bad honey! 'Nos' what? I think you got me!

However folks,the above is purely fictional about a non-fictional character who is probably waving from up above. Well it's kinda creepy but lets just wave back.

Just smile and wave!
And before I leave,

Happy NewYear!

Sophie Kinsella and love or vice versa...

Hello everyone! I'm back.

It's pretty hard isn't it to maintain a blog like a museum?

I know I know.

Now that I'm finally here after sacrificing many important tv series to dust it , nothing seems to provoke the words out. I'm so helpless peeps...( the 3 dots that's always a difference maker)

...( yes again)

Ok fine! Miss shopaholic here have decided to metaphorically yank about love ( long time no touch this subject.)

 A note by the author: Written in a Very-close-to-my-heart setting. Trust me ..( you can't separate my bond with'em stores and malls and yada yada =))


Love ( to not confuse the public, the word here signifies the one that nicholas sparks often narrates about).
 

Fine, one more take.




Love,

It's just like being lured into a store by the all spruced up mannequins that desperately seeks an awe from every passerby. Behind those polished windows, everything beams like your next possession soon to turn many allies into the green eyed monsters. The heart turns heavy rejecting all moves but harder it pounds glancing over the staple pieces that induces the itch to spend.

At that perfect moment without a doubt, a voice within soars,
Who wouldn't want that?

A question that indeed winks right at your magic cards, making the coveted sheen and silk of its own scent all yours as soon as you drop a sign.

Awwwww....(caught up by deja vu)

The priceless glow and smile on your face turns impeccable even beating that of Marc Jacob's signature doodle-Miss Marc,  paints a prime portrait to be forever reminisced. The proud owner it clamours ! (hmmm...let me have a moment)

..............

However ( *tearing*),
Little did anyone know, when the store lights are ripped off, the glamour of cost overthrows that of the mistaken worth.

Briefly ;
In love, admiration followed by possession still leads down to the renowned question, 'Is this worth?'

So, what do you think?
Is it a false equation or a fake emotion? * flustered*

That's it!
Hmm it's very non literal isn't it?

Well I just want you guys to tickle your brains a little. Long holidays uh?

Good luck with that pals. Anyway to not upset any party, I'm assuring that this issue doesn't relate to everyone's situation. I know there are true lovers out there who are indeed treasures that need to multiply ( to save the world) and pursued after :D

Ps I'm kinda attempting to be Jr.Sophie Kinsella here, I need support... Or help... Or nothing...

(Damn! I love'em 3 dots!)

Good day!

Happy 52nd Birthday !

Some are meant to be while the rest are mere delusions of our feeble minds. Yes that's my perception on the universal yet the most complicated subject, RELATIONSHIP.

With a concrete base of love is formed a relationship. It can exist even between two strangers of no similarity. Don't ask me why please, for myself like the rest of you have no say upon it.

As far relationships are concerned, I have experienced plenty and analyzed many that fell on my sight. It would indeed be a fact if were to say that none shares a mutual platform when a bond is up for comparison. Each and every relationships are certainly unique without the common label of good and bad.

Peeking at the world from my shoes, I rather blame on the base for the individuality of bonds we share. A relationship is polished gold according to the amount of love invested and of course who would dare deny the authority intentions have in making one more sacred and meaningful than the rest.

With a cup full of love and a hand full of good intentions, a forever strong base is made without much chemistry or physics. That's a no-brainer!

BTW Why am I going over lengthy about relationship?

Well tomorrow is my dad's birthday! As a good daughter it's apparently my utmost responsibility to honor the man I owe the most to.

Love and relationships can be eternal at times but the 'at times' in real encounters often synonymises 'VERY rare'. In a world that is ever evolving, the bond that connects us too is bashed up in the name of progress. Progress and changes in life that we can neither deny nor elude from. Am i I right?

But some relationships are just so strong that even Nostradamus can't crack or even shake. It comes from the heart and it's forever the same. Ripples are unavoidable, hiccups are everywhere. We are humans afterall right? Straight to the point, no matter how worse the base is tormented, it's ability to stand and support is awe inspiring not only to the eyes but soothing to the heart.

That's the bond between me and my father.

I love you a lot pa. I may not be the daughter who shares every single problem of mine and listen to your forever rewinded and replayed advices, but deep inside I know my father's expectations and how to live up to it.

Happy 52nd birthday pa! Never seen a love so strong and I have always known that nobody will ever be able to care as much as you do. Me and Uma love you soooooo much!

I know you are not perfect. Your pre, during and post parking still needs improvement. You panic even with a GPS map. You don't know how to enjoy life like myself and Uma particularly. But its OK, just like how MR GSM loves us despite our shortfalls, we will always love our darling father!!!! Hehe.

P.s Where's my christmas present?? :-p

Finally of his


Strawberry is the fruit I love the most and Marc Jacobs is the designer that amazed me in all ways. What if I get to combine them both ? 

What if it comes in a bottle?

Not a dream but just a small introduction to my new perfume Daisy Hot Pink by Marc Jacobs .

The perfume has a strong hint of wild strawberry and jasmine that awes and lures me into buying this creation of the fashion coveted designer.

I think you guys already know that there is another perfume in the name of Daisy by Marc Jacobs since it is famously known for its impeccable effect on women’s spirit and of course their ‘sniffers’. But now, let me explain the difference between the mentioned and mine. 

Both smells pretty much the same but their concentrations differ. Daisy by Marc Jacobs is Eau de toilette while Daisy Hot Pink By Marc Jacobs is labelled as Eau de Parfum. For your information, perfumes that are classified under Eau de toilette are lighter in concentration compared to those of Eau de Parfum. Therefore, Daisy Hot Pink By Marc Jacobs lingers longer than Marc Jacobs’  previous release Daisy.

Well about the price, Daisy Hot Pink is 345 MYR per 100ml bottle while Daisy is slightly cheaper by 23 MYR only.

Lucky for me, the purchase came with a free shower gel  which winks a hefty 165MYR without the promotion. BINGO!

I think this is the most expensive and expansive buy I made during my shopping spree in Pavilion. 

p/s The Christmas decorations are simply superb, particularly  the cake!

The unexpected and a friend

We can't always have it in our grip don't we?

There are some things that we craft for ourselves, and there are a few that arrives at our doorstep like a loathed guest.

It is often easy to identify which is which but who said its possible reject one and welcome the other ?

Life isn't a Ryan Seacrest production right?

No matter what, there is this one soothing thing about life that can keep us looking forward for another day, EVERYTHING HEALS. ( at least a little)

And to my dearest friend Yen,

I know you will recover real soon! I'm really sorry for being such an idiotic friend by taking a looong time to respond but seriously I just received the message after restarting my phone. Celcom 3G sucks! Considering the time which is 1am, I think it is more sensible to blog than disturb you with your meow tone. Whatever it is, get well soon Yen , take a good rest and you will be abso-freakin-lutely OK!

Remember this; the more you ignore the pain and keep yourself occupied and happy, healing speeds up like finishing up a scoop of Baskins in a wink... Or maybe a few..

Lotsa luv.

p/s that band suits your wrist pretty well =p

Makeup Primer; A beauty Essential

A support system is deemed essential for even tables and chairs. The only reason for us to have a sturdy physique is also the support system of ours that comprises of 206 bones which forestall us from sinking to the ground and mingle with’em worms and leeches.

Just like the aforementioned, even a  support system in makeup do exist.  However, it is neglected by many who are busy condemning the right foundation and concealers for not being able sustain the magic for a long time apart from bringing their flaws to the limelight. The underrated system is what called as the makeup primer!

The primer you pick up to support the layers of makeup soon to be placed can be a life saver if the right choice were made. It assists in smoothing your skin tone, crucial at keeping oil at bay, reduces the appearance of facial scars while making even an inexpensive makeup buys last all night long. Even the encounters with usual makeup faux pas like noticeable pores and redness can be avoided without much strain and excessive application of foundation just with a simple step after moisturizing. 

Not to prime is indeed a crime!!
Ladies, it's about time to stop suffocating your skin with layers of base and get a primer for a long lasting close-to-perfection makeup.

Assuming that I’ve converted many into a primer believer, let me introduce you to my primer;


Its by Revlon. If you think RM 63 is too pricy for a cosmetic product, I assure the buy  a great investment for sticklers of perfection!


BTW, I bought Estee Lauder’s Holiday Collection which is in collaboration with Michael Kors the famous designer who has more than what it takes to create a femme fatale bag ( not as great as MJ yet,admirable). The set includes a face palette, Pure Color lipstick and gloss and an eye liner and two brushes – one is a face brush and the other is an eye shadow brush. Not to forget the classy cosmetic bag by the legend which comes in silver, platinum and gold. 


It costs me RM 200 and since I was made aware that at normal price the combo alarms a hefty RM 500, I took the deal. Having always admired Estee Lauder’s mojo armed cosmetics in videos of Beauty Genius by Marie Claire, I’m looking forward to try these stuffs out real soon.

Believe in thyself

"Only when you believe in yourself that the world will start believing in you. "

This is an absolute fact!

If you start questioning your abilities & capabilities, you are expecting failure to pin you down forever and that is an absolute sorry statement isn't it? Prickly though, it's true!

Nobody is going to give that pat on shoulder reminding you of your own greatness except ye. Muster faith upon your abilities and work your way up letting grapevines reap defeat. That should be the way!

People who can't outshine or even stand beside you want to convince thyself on the harshness of a fall but that shouldn't trip you down.

A man of no self believe is nothing but a fragile glassware, I say. Once broken, forever in pieces!

Seriously, don't mirror that!

Remember, If you don't strike, you have no chance of getting back up, what more of kissing glory ( no pun intended)? So whatever is the circumstances thrown, always give yourself a chance, and befriend that habit!

Opportunity leads to success and in order to succeed you need to try, not hesitate.Don't refrain from chances that might open new doors by bleaching away your own self belief, that's certainly not an option for those who anticipate success.

Now, get moving!

Sad and the Sassy


I won't deny any allegations that summons me of excessive entertainment and extreme sedentary routine. Couch potato is the label pasted!  For so long 'they' locked me in, yes the kind you would describe as imprisonment. Point blank, I did go out to get my iPhone case and of course McDonalds (you know I can't live without it) but in this protest I choose to expunge such minor events  as I need to further stress on boredom due to redundant indoor leisure. Trust me, it affected me and my brain severely. Assuming I have justified the reason for the short hiatus, I hop back to the issue.

Imprisonment is a thing but even going out seem to the least excite me at this mentioned period. To answer the why, I choose the world ‘incomplete’. I’m not so known for hanging out with my ‘girls’ except if the case were to be in Terengganu.  Ditto, my days when I’m in Kluang are 100% spent with my family. Prickly though, lately in that few moments I spend outdoor I’m either alone or with my dad.  That is extremely sad and not even a percent enjoyable ( ok maybe a few when my dad is there). The one thing I’m anticipating is for sister to comeback for the weekend and morph the incomplete into a perfect day out!

Can't wait!

A little about fashion;
I've always had a very bad perception on denim shirts but this lady featured in Streetpeeper.com convinced me print skirt and the aforementioned piece can make a great elegant combo.

Acknowledgement with rewards

Call it an ultimate result of dependency,

To be rewarded and embraced for good behaviors,

To confide and strengthen the decisions made and
To forever trust the actions bestowed.

But what is there to deny when the beneficiary points at me?

As a notion speaks, what are acknowledgment without rewards?

Considering that I accept whole-heartedly what is given!

Finally mine..
 The credit certainly goes to Mr.GS!!! lotsa love!

Books and Mr. Hobby

There was a point in my life, I went head over heels about reading to the extent of listing it as my official hobby. I read basically every single orthographic thing regardless of its impact on my life and yea even ketchup labels were victimized in that mentioned period. I used to do what people regard as the 'sneaky reading ' , you know like reading with a torch under the blanket. Golden moments. But it's not like a decade ago incident, the sneaky reading just made me so happy that I choose to polish the act gold. I really miss it!

Truth be told, my hobbies are often like cravings. It's easy to appease and jumps to another after a good serving. I remember when I was a kid, I loved to collect stamps and to your surprise I even had an album to frame my hard-work. I tell you what, running out to the post box right after the postman leaves and be the first to tear off the stamp before the envelope is a tough one even without a competitor! As I grow older the hobby and of course the historical album gave way to a new leisure which I've forgotten completely.

The ever evolving chain of hobbies without a doubt connected me with a lot of things I'm glad I tried. The hardest part though is to bounce back to what is done. I have been too crazy about reading and now I don't feel for it anymore.

However, at the back of my mind I always sense the urge to read. Believe me if I say there were times I felt restless when I don't read. Yes restless and there is no confusion about the usage of the word. To further clarify, it's like I want to read but I don't feel for it.

I jolly have to blame the book then right? Currently my reads include The Oracle( I just finished reading the prologue and here I'm interrogating myself) and Me And Mr.Darcy ( currently at chapter 10).

Maybe the books picked are not of my preference.

What is my preference then ?

Ok before that,to not leave an enigma, the books I did 'sneaky reading' with were Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh and Eat Pray Love.

Perhaps inspiring stuffs are the ones that can glue me.

Or we can even put the whole thing this way; A bad reader blames her book!

While I figure it out,

Belt it up


Don’t let it wear you, let you wear it!

If you have a great body flatter and accentuate it at proper places.  Don’t let your baggy apparels sink your curves and experts mouthed that.

Do you remember those halcyon days we used to belt our loose pants for safety reasons? 

from Chicotopia
Lately though, belts have evolved to cater for more hiccups in the fashion world. From a shift dress to a blazer, we belt nearly everything. Or perhaps we should. Rather than waiting for the wind to unmask your puny waist, cinching an appropriate belt around does it more elegantly and that is one among the plenty of reasons to belt up!

The scattered trend at the moment is the belt-the-cardigan look. Did you watch Kaylee Defer  in Gossip Girl Season 5, if I’m not mistaken it’s episode 6. Well, I do realize that she ‘cardiganize’ nearly all her outfits in GG but I want you to focus her style in this particular episode, the scene in which she competes to become Blair’s bridesmaid. The 25 years old actress looked incredibly awesome in that A-line dress and a grey cardigan which was belted up right at her waist to flatter her figure.( sorry couldn’t get a snapshot)

But, I’ll let you watch how Victoria Beckham ‘spiced’ up her look!

Just because it is the latest vogue doesn’t mean you have to belt up every time you don up a cardigan! Plus, sometimes instead of belting the cardigan, it suits better to belt the piece underneath. 
 Let your fashion eyes do the judgement !

 Here's a video to assist you :

Perfumes to Perfection


New and yet to be tried...
As you all readily know, I’m a bit of a beauty junkie who takes a fair share in trying and certainly purchasing cosmetics and of course fragrances.  In just 2  years, I have tried oodles of fun perfumes of different brands and celebrities . Just like Lisa Snowdon,  I enjoy popping in to the Duty Frees at the airport and try out perfumes. It’s just irresistible to see and not try the new perfume in town! ( BTW, Have you tried  Burberry Body?)

Some say stick to one and never change but the rest supports having a collection of perfumes or in simple what we call as the ‘fragrance wardrobe’. Which one is your preference?

In my view, although you have already found love with that one scent that you can’t live without, building a ‘fragrance wardrobe’ is essential to cure you of the boredom that might attack you or a friend that sniffs it somewhere in disguise ( You will never know who is..).

Looking at the bright side, having a variety to choose from allows you to orient your perfume according to occasions. You could have one that is musky for a day out with friends and other tiresome events as it lasts longer. Throw the fast fading citrus-based fragrances for quick meetings or dinner with your family and don’t forget to save the vanilla and peach scents for that someone special!
My Favorite!!!!

The point everyone should note is that something that smells great on your bestie won’t leave the same delicious effect on your body and skin. Call it the cold hard truth but the fact being, the manner which fragrance oils act together with our natural scent and body oils varies. 

Dior perfumes are of absolute worth!
Next, how much do one need? When the talk is perfume, this is the universal question! I used to know people who drench themselves in perfumes and colognes that even a yearly or twice a year product end up like some weekly groceries. Less is more and  I can’t advocate further this absolute fact. Spray it at your pulse points and that is enough and remember, NOT ON YOUR DRESS as it’s still fragrance OIL! Don’t end up spoiling the hundreds worth garment to smell a ‘lil stronga’.

Now let’s hear it from the expert! 

According to celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe  it’s important to “try before you buy,” and give the scent time ( 5-10 minutes at least) to settle before purchasing. Rachel also suggests only choosing scents you love, instead of buying because of a celebrity endorsement. “ 

The last line was like "in my face!"

To end, perfume is nothing but a staple saviour of the fairer sex which adds oomph and contributes in finishing up the posh look with a gloss in the personality. The mother of fashion, Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future,” so let’s perfume hunt ladies!

Striped Tee + Blazer = Chic

Miranda Kerr is certainly a style icon who is proven guilty of awe-inspiring trends that are at the same time practical and chic. This Victoria Secret's glam shell is always snapped on the streets around NY by Glamour, Vogue and other Fashion mags for the mentioned envy armed crime.

Her recent snapshot on Glamour speaks nothing but a trend clamored and coveted by many fashion slaves.
You can't beat down her Aussie style

Ain't no gold digger for Balmain
Isn't that inspiring enough? You need not drain out more than you can afford as a striped tee and a staple layering option won't cost you an entire year of shopping! Speaking about the layering option, it is not solely about leather jackets or an expensive Balmain jacket. Even a moderately priced blazer or vest would do. BINGO!

According to my fashion eyes,  a blazer on top of the striped tee preferably from ZARA (their blazers are exceptionally nice, even better than Topshop's) is the best choice. To be on the safe side, don't risk it with bright colored pieces, especially yellow. Ok? But if your last name is Gaga, why hesitate? Speak your mind!

Whatever it is, DO NOT invest on a knitwear as a layering option because the pairing appears to be a cheap combo unless the aforementioned knitwear is of good quality and suitable color. If it doesn't fit the description, by all means wear it for sleep.
FYI the movie is worth watching!

This trend is all over the place for quite some time now, even in the movie Monte Carlo (not so new, i know) - Leighton Meester looked awesome flaunting the mentioned street style in the capital of  Italy.You know where.

It is certainly easy on your pockets and easy on your eyes. Not to forget, it is casual enough for a day out or even a date night. SO what's next?

Shopping Time!

Impressions, thou shan't penetrate

This is so true. Don't waste your time trying to impress people and true enough, those we spend time impressing are those who are of the least worth. Tough luck, I learned this the hard way. But no worries because, the lesson is taken and I moved on.

No efforts made to impress nor overthrow anyone's ability.

iPhone 4S; the Craved and Crushed on

After longing and crushing for years, I'm a month a way to become the proud owner of the soon-to-be released iPhone 4S.

Point blank, I love apple products to the extent of compromising all my chocolates, ice creams and french fries supplies for a decade to meet the payment!

Why Apple?

1. Their APP store is equal to a quintessential mall.
2. They allow my lappy to dwell and bond affectionately with the existing trojan and worms at a corner, somewhere in my house.
3. I'm the number 1 of devotee of Steve Jobs and I can assure that i've memorized his commencement speech at Stanford from the beginning till the end.
4. Apple Products look classy!
5. Don't you think everyone loves Apple?

I'm very contented with my abilities to convince my dad to finally agree to iPhone.Years long effort I tell you. Can't wait to explore the mentioned gadget and to your note Mr.GS it better be in WHITE.

The thing worth mentioned about iPhone 4S is Siri. She is your Apple-Assigned assistant and all you need to do is ask. For further information, Apple-Siri

The perfect addition to my Apple family at home- iPod touch and iPad.

Let's just wait till iPhone 4S comes to the Malaysian market! Fingers-crossed.

Silence is THE best answer!

Silence is the best answer. Agree?

It kills anger, it teaches the art of ignoring and is truly a best friend that never betrays when things get out of hand. 
Totally!

Silence, a weapon overleaped from the silo that is armouring human kind in a hush-hush way. It has neither an expiry date nor need to be manufactured with a high cost.  Though F.O.C, it is indeed a golden gift that many left out in the rat race in search of peace. 
All out...

Everyone seems to be too busy justifying their actions and behaviours without hearing the sniggers of the world. A forlorn attempt that appears fruitful to many apparently.  Couldn’t have put it any better.

Don’t you remember the last time you walked in those shoes? In fact, we all did right?  Or perhaps still doing.

Humans oblige and that is a fact that can’t be beaten down. We always try our level best to hold our ground and at times it gets overdosed.  Even though most of times, squeamish acts is treated with a cold cosh, not a tiny prove of shake is seen among us. 

Which human wants to be proven guilty?  Tell me!
In fact, each and every one of us wants that label ‘ I’m good’ in bold right on our faces, agree?*sighs*

Despite the noises...got it babe?
But truth be told, life isn’t at all a bed of roses, we hardly have it our way. Perhaps it can be turned into one if you are strong enough   Yet to accept the mentioned as the nature of life is foolish and certainly deceiving enough to make you an outcast in the fictitious society even of your own.  

Having mentioned the consequences of the true human nature, it is evident that the proverbial bed has high possibilities of morphing into a sack of thorns. And when that happens, ripping your emotions brutally without mercy, silence is the only thing or to be accurate the only ‘state’ that can be personified into your own superman or the legendary Puss in boots. Bank on it!

It comes without a call and rescues all, in an assorted society full of brawls.
Silence is the best answer!

Marshmallow vs Steel

There is this one thing about we girls that always winks an advantage for the stronger sex. Our soft marshmallowy heart!

Nearly every one of us know why we throw some things but most fail to grasp the reason we showed the doors to some people, especially guys! The moment they reappear all masked up to lure us into another bait, we give in. Like seriously, what is wrong with us? Memory loss or the sickness of the feeble-minded?

Leaving someone is not like routine goodbyes that we utter for no important reason. It is done after so much considerations, disputes and close to world war fights. The final blow has a concrete reason behind it and it is indeed concrete enough that changes cannot simply penetrate in like some black magic or mojo. Unless your ex is a friend of the master of illusions!

Really? Think again.

Don't fall but do doubt!

It's time to get stronger girls. XO

Hatred and Jealousy

We live in a place where hatred and love are equally in abundance. Love makes us too happy so just let the feel itself take its own course. Having said that, obviously we are now left with hatred to be talked about.

Have you ever been hated before?

Normal people would say yes and if anyone takes the opposite then I suggest you replace Saint as your first name. But truth be told, even saints are hated nowadays!

Just like love, it is like a over growing or perhaps contagious trend to hate without a reason lately. Agree? If you were to bring the why question here, I would say jealousy. Nearly all girls are affected by this war-inducing disease! Unfortunately, a cure is not found.

We hate people like we don clothes. Seriously! We change reasons to hate that someone, we go in search for them (the reasons) and we accessorize them at times to spice things up!

Like I said, it is contagious! As moments pass, days creep by ,the despised will pick up hatred as well landing the whole issue under a mutual platform. Why she wants to hate? The golden answer being; NO REASON. Or a better one would be, hatred is always mutual. Even though it started off by a spark from one side, it will somehow morph into mutuality. That is indeed a fact!

What do we do now?

The one thing that can come for your rescue is, your blind spot. Frankly speaking, it is not at all easy to erase hatred like a pencil mark. Obliteration is impossible in the short term, trust me! But if you can control yourself and wait for the mighty TIME to heal, of course it is a YES. The point being, how many of us can?

So girls, make damn sure that the someone falls on your blind spot.  Invisibility helps!

Miss Universe Malaysia 2011/2012: FAILURE

I’m pretty sure many of you watched MUM 2012 which was turned into a reality tv show with a big time money making agenda. Too much of show offs and votes and dramas we came across throughout the beauty camp that somehow mirrored America’s Next Top Model in its concept (except the sms votes). Evaluators armed by spicy words and challenges that are moot to a beauty queen were evident here and there from the start till the Gala Night itself.

I was indeed blurred on the whys! Seriously, why would a  beauty camp require the girls to do stand up comedies in public eateries! As far as I know, beauty camp or any sort of camp is for the purpose of building confidence and making them feel comfortable being themselves. What is this new concept all about?
Are we too free and rich for such shows? And having no history of winning the Miss Universe crown, what is this brouhaha about?

It is just like hopping on this reality tv bandwagon and making the ‘most’ out of it. Sucking the voters dry and deceiving them with the so called LOAD Miss Universe has to bear by frequently popping the golden question of ‘why Malaysia should choose you?’ Oh come on, Beauty Queens either vanish by time or make it into the entertainment industry. You do not need to convince Malaysia and Malaysians do not need to crack their heads to pick the right girl to do what mentioned.
Enough of the show offs!

Who watched the Gala Night? Tacky evening gowns that were poorly fitted on some girls. Stephanie’s and Lu Xanne’s dress, that is more disastrous than wearing a bikini! There is nothing wrong in showing some skin but which part is a BIG deal. The dress looked obscene and the one to be blamed is the designer. No offence, but I saw no extraordinaire in any of those dresses. Gabriella’s, poorly fitted. When she turned around, you could see that the dress is barely placed on her like a blanket that could fly with the wind.Not to forget the unnecessary cuts below at the center which looked as if the dresses were burnt. A sexy dress isn’t all about showing skin, get that right!

Overall, the whole show was an embarrassing one!

Less is more, keep that in mind. We have watched too much of what we saw and MUM 2012 is nothing but a failure.

Hatched plans and hovered paths

Hey guys, hope everyone is having a fun ride on this ever evolving circle. it's indeed great to shade under our own roof looking at the wonders life has to offer. But that is all moot here, I mean at this sole moment that a transformation is about to occur, yes it is absolutely the case of beating around the proverbial bush!

What is this sudden shift all about? You might consider it another (yes I did say 'another' meaning there were a plenty before) thought of the feebleminded that leads to nothing but a return journey to square one somewhere along the road towards execution. Well in that case, you are by all means allowed to calculate my future loss on this vision sculptured but being a pudding head i reckon it would be more decent to rather present a specious argument and get away with it like a serpent beneath the flower ( reminiscing Macbeth moments). Seriously,believe it!

Frankly, I'm not planning to paint or perhaps thinking more sensibly, 'disastrously doodle' any picture about the mentioned transformation or plan or vision or insert-any-proper-synonym/word. This post is merely for the purpose of making some grief for the loss of a great blog. Ceh-Wah! Haha!
ok MOOT!

I jolly well realize that this blog means so much to me than any other non living thing. Having said that, I'm accepting all charges against me of abandoning chipmunk, mojojo and mr.monkey. And I too realize the consequences of miss karma swallowing me up as whole in the next life for this honest, honest? Erase that! Again. And I too realize the consequences of miss karma swallowing me up as whole in the next life for my 50/50 honest confession! Phew!

Ok where was I? Meaning so much right? Nobody can ever deny that. It's a 4 years journey and I'm not kidding you since I don't josh serious issues ( serious means something nerve wrecking like that right? Double check.). I expressed so many things or shall I say TOO many things that at one point I found my own blog to be made a rubble of my life happenings. Point blank those times were not classy that it brought me to a final decision of leaving the rubble where it belongs- the trash bin. Now you can grasp the obliteration of some cheesy posts on my white picket fence which turn out to be a fence that should be jumped off (ok now I'm writing like a cat).

And a lot more beat downs and rise ups this blog bore till that day I took up this canvas seriously, taking it to a whole different level with better views and opinions and nonsensical humour which only myself felt funny. it shouldn't work that way right ?

Who cares. Hallelujah I can laugh at my own self! (What a happy kid..)

Rocks and peebles.My journey was not a smooth one I should say! Yes I do have it in my blood, my dad is a very good writer. However, being a couch potato sucked some part of that intelligence and made me nothing but a black sheep. Therefore( sorry for sounding like some SPM candidate),in hope of better posts and more readers, I took up reading to brush up my vocabulary and muster up vicarious experiences, not to forget my love towards shakespeare and literature which further injected motivation and positivity upon my ability and capabilities. Just like Oprah who crafted small lies towards big success, I won't forget the small steps that made so much difference in my writing.

Yes I'm quitting. Not on this thing I have a penchant for but this blog. In fact the 2 blogs I own at the moment. It's perhaps not the end because that sounds very dramatic and I'm not in that mood yet. It's more like abandonment, letting the dust and spider and bugs to rent it for some time. Do I need an apologetic line here?

Being consciously aware that karma is a b**** and she has got 2 concrete reasons now to attack me, I do want to promise a return. Hey I don't directly mean it but you folks just see. Who knows, maybe you are invited to watch my journey armed with positivity and big ambitions towards a commitment I've envisioned somewhere somehow.
Fingers-crossed!

Moot: I did read that book on Oprah by Kitty Kelly! Kitty Kelly is pissed for some reasons that she wrote a little too much and dug way worse painting a polar image of what is perceived and flaunted by many. Conclusion: Oprah too has a locker like Davy jones', trust me! The contrasting stories and accusations can give you a feel of reading a copy of Jeffery archer's.

Goodbye!

An encounter: Boredom

Have you ever known how it feels like to let your own imagination run 'over' you? So badly and deeply that the next moment all your senses turn off by itself throwing yourself into the dreamland of a fatigue minded? Boredom they call it. And it caught me by its sharp mighty arrow putting me under its mojo for a few long minutes (talking about sleep) just to indirectly alert me of its existence. It was indeed just an alert that I can ignore the next moment for it serves no importance to me nor any part of myself. Like seriously, who's minding the events of the subconscious? Unless I'm about to reenact 'inception' but that is far beyond logic as I didn't get the whole thing even WITH English subtitles. Point blank, the movie twisted my brain so severely that LDC himself looked like Tin tin to me! Just forget it.

Back to my encounter with boredom! I could have or perhaps should have ignored it, but the irony being it mattered most at that sole moment to think. To set aside or maybe pause everything else to jolly look at the issue closely, to analyze the alert. It matters and failing to admit the influence of the encounter might land the rest of my leisure at home in jeopardy!

Yes I gotta do something , even though it needs me to sacrifice my dates with chuck bass ,Dr House and not forgetting Pete and Nick the greatest lawyers of Vegas.

My condition ladies and gentlemen can fall under the list of toughest issues ever faced by mankind and is also capable of making headlines and be requested to be made a memoir that can beat all the stories of Elizabeth Gilbert and even land Jeffery Archer in such severe dilemma that he won't be able to solve his own mystery.

While waiting for the mentioned miracle, let me just sit and think thoroughly of the possibles that can be put into practice to shoo this boredom away and turn the alert given into nothing but dust on my Educational Psychology text book!

Ok folks that is all for now. Got a movie to catch in a few hours time, bathing time !

2nd of 8


End of 2nd semester of my degree programme!!!Weee!!

Isn’t that an indication that I'm about to reflect?? Yes I am! There will be cheesy explanations and lame sleep inducing sharing session so don't tell me you were not warned earlier!
Time flies just like that

First of all I want to talk about the exams. I’m definitelyvery satisfied of what I’ve done and good or bad the result is, nothing but my hard work justifies it. The previous semester everything was an abysmal mess and all I could do was play mediocre as it was not easy to stop thinking about the tragic happenings that were conquering my mind all the while. Since this time everything fell into place, I'm confident I have given the best . Hoping to see hike in my pointer!

IPG Stuffs.I promised myself when I started with my second semester, not to ever play mediocre! To my own surprise, I succeeded. My courseworks, presentations and exams, everything is something I want to be proud of. Not to brag, its just this self satisfaction making me talk and compliment myself.I hope despite the pressure semester 3 will bring ( I know it will!! You know the PKU thingy), I pray so badly that I will keep this up. Nothing is greater than looking at your own work and admiring it. Hey wait, my group mates!! Yes to those who worked with me in any group tasks, thank you so much. It was indeed a pleasure to work with you guys. To those who left and those who are still playing a part in my life, I choose to accept it as the meant to be condition till the next wave shows up.

NEW THINGS I did in semester 2! As you all readily know, I took up fashion blogging. Yes it went well and I gained more than what I predicted.When I say gain I'm not denoting the amount of money, its the pleasure and experiences. Reading articles about fashion is relaxing and informative at the same time. It contributed in making the right choices while shopping, layering options, the mixing and matching techniques and of course the fashion crimes. Well not to say I'm such a fashionista at the moment but it is always a good thingto learn new stuffs. Or perhaps I should blame it on my love towards blogging! What’s the point of writing just for the sake of it. I’m a believer of trying newthings and fashion blogging is certainly the first adventure I took up voluntarily to venture into difference genres of writing. What’s next?? Pointblank I'm still thinking, perhaps something more informative. Whatever it is, I will continue fashion blogging as and when I feel like scribbling something related to that specific column I have a penchant for. To Marie Claire, Company,ELLE and Glamour I will always stay as the no.1 devotee!

MEMORIES are to be treasured they say but some are just worth destroying at the right time. Sadly I missed it during that mentioned period but today since it caught my eyes, off it went to the ..you know where. Sometimes knowing too much just kills any sort offeelings isn’t it? I'm better off this way and this is also what we call as meant to be.

Holidays! My favourite part! After suffering severe sleep deprivation for days, the 1st thing I'm going to do at home is sleep! Seriously! But there is that one thing at home that will distract the consumption of this dreamy medicine of mine. TV! Perhaps I just have to do schedulingto balance between the two. And yes I’m going to do something beneficial this time ( I know the meaning of ‘beneficial’). I have something in my mind but since I need approval from the kind sponsor, we just wait and see okay? You know right, how can one just sit on the coach and rewind a million times gossipgirls just to see chuck bass walk. We need good hobbies! Like......... (to be revealed soon)
Byeeeeee


Lesson learnt: The world takes no justification. If you know what you're worth, prove it to your own self!


Happy Holidays.
