take me shopping.

Currently feeling: Bored
Currently listening to: Nothing


I am in desperate need of a new pair of jeans.
I also could do with a nice new big black bag.
I would not mind having a new comfortable pair of sexy heels too.

I am so bored and so hungry but am in constant denial of the latter (of course).

my himalayan quest.

Currently feeling: Hot
Currently listening to: Nothing


If any of you still remember, I complained about how I was losing hair a couple of months ago. It was really really bad. I was sweeping heaps of hair from my lap every time I sit down. I was so ashamed of going out into public especially on public transportations which requires me to sit and sweep my fallen hair of my body. My hair was so thin, my scalp was visible. Honest. You can ask the sister if you think I am being dramatic.
At first I thought it was due to stress and bad diet, but then I decided to try changing my shampoo. Lene suggested the brand Himalaya for it's supposedly natural herbal ingredients.
I saw and felt the difference from the first time I used the shampoo and conditioner. My hair was not falling ! Well, not as much as it used to.
It has been two months since then and I dare not part with their shampoo and conditioner. They smell great too !
I was running out of conditioner a few days ago and I told Lene to try to help get it from the Himalaya store outlet in KLCC but it was out of stock. It was not available in Guardian there too where they usually have Himalaya products. She asked the salesperson whether it would be available in MidValley and the salesperson said yes. Being the paranoid person that I am because I just have to get my hands on a new tube of the conditioner before the old one finishes, I decided to go to MidValley after work yesterday night. I should have known that the KTM Komuter would be super super packed with people, all heading back to their hometown for the Chinese New Year holidays. So there I was, standing and sweating profusely in the middle of an ocean of people waiting for the train to arrive. That's was not so bad. After pushing and pushing to get on the train, I was stuck. Stuck and sandwiched in between three men and a pole. I did not have to hold on to anything. I was securely sandwiched ! I was still sweating madly OK.
Huh, all that for a tube of hair conditioner.
When I arrived at MidValley, I rushed to the LG floor with much anxiety only to hear the salesgirl cheerfully say, "Oh, it's out of stock right now, probably would be available next month."
OH MY GOD.
My heart sanked. Oh wait, it actually stopped beating. I wanted to cry as I was texting Lene to tell her that erm, I wanted to cry.
But then I saw Guardian which was opposite the Himalaya and walked into it.
Ahhhhhh there they were, six tubes of Himalaya Hair Detangler and Conditioner arranged nicely on the rack waiting for me to bring them home. I honestly stood there and thought about buying ALL six OK.
I almost jumped in joy. I know I was smiling to myself because the girl next to me was looking at me with a worried look.
I only bought one tube just in case any of you were curious.
But yeah, Guardian saved me from a heart attack.

OK cukup lah drama malam ini kan ?
Goodnight.

i am a lousy blogger.

Currently feeling: Bloated
Currently listening to: Stronger Than Me - Amy Winehouse


I think it's about time someone declared me the lousiest blogger around.
It's nearing the end of January and I have only written ONE post this month and it's not even noteworthy.
Sigh.

The thing is, nothing much has been going on in my life these days. It has been work, sleep, eat, a few parties, and a few get-togethers. That's pretty much it.
I am too freaking lazy to upload any photos here. Most of them are in my Facebook anyway.
I have two and a half weeks more in Tanglin, then it's back to hell HPJ (Hospital Putrajaya) for another eight fucking months. I am so dreading the 6th of February. Arggghhhh !

Lene just started working at La Senza, KLCC today.
I'm gonna have to go pick her up at the LRT station later tonight. But I am already feeling sleepy. How ? *yawns*
Oh yeah, I have been driving quite a lot I might say. The furthest I have driven to so far is to Kajang. I consider that an achievement. Haha. I can't wait to drive Mr. Sunshine around the next time he comes down.

Lene named my car Coconut. I forgot why.
Hmm, because I love chocolates too much and that I am a nut ?
I've gotta remember to ask her again.
So yeah, my car, Coconut or affectionately called Coco. Haha.

Lene got through to the finals of the KLPac Idol 2009 which was yesterday. There were 8 finalists altogether. Her performance was awesome but unfortunately luck was not on her side. I was in tears (and hysterically shouting) as I was sooo proud to see her on stage rocking the crowd. *smiles*

I have bruises on my thigh and arm from Bryan's birthday pool party last Saturday night. I honestly do not know how I got them.

I am slightly sunburned from sitting at the side of the lake at KLPac yesterday afternoon. My face is stinging OK.

Believe or not, I am gonna be 25 and I have never gotten a manicure (or a pedicure) and I think I need one. On the LRT this evening this girl who sat next to me had such lovely nails, unpolished, but lovely ! Unlike mine with all these dead/dry cuticles (or whatever these ugly things at the side of my nails are).
My feet are full of ugly blisters. Yucks.
Why is it so hard to find shoes that do not torture my feet ?

My back's aching (age catching up ?) so I am gonna lie down for a bit. I hope I don't fall asleep.
Goodnight people.

a food filled start to 2009.

Currently feeling: Flabby

Hello all.
This would be my first post for 2009.
Before I go on, I hope it's not too late to wish you all a very Happy 2009. Hope all of you had a smashing start to the New Year and here's to an equally smashing year ahead.

How did I usher in the New Year ?
Well, I was wrapped in the arms of my comfy blanket and was far far away in dreamland.
I dozed off early on New Year's eve night, after a couple of rounds of sparkling wine with Daddy and Marc. Lene was in Penang with her friend's family.
We were supposed to join Faiz, Faizal and the rest of the cousins but Daddy did not feel like it so we stayed in to keep him company.
I still remember those days when I used to feel like a loser if I had no plans for New Year's/Merdeka etc. Nowadays, I am content even if I do not get to watch the fireworks or stay up until midnight.
Boy, I feel old.

Mr. Sunshine came down to see me on New Year's day and we spent almost 3 full days together. I had help from Sal to drive me to LCCT to pick him up. We went shopping, watched Bedtime Stories and indulged in a sinfully huge amount of food from buffet breakfast, TGIF three course meals, Swensen's baked rice and ice cream, McDonald's Prosperity Burger meal and (unnecessary) snacks in between all weekend long. Crazy, right ? I gained 2 kgs over the weekend.




Oh oh, we also made a trip to the Zoo last Sunday just before he headed back.
He did all the driving.
I had a panic attack on the (one) night he let me drive in Damansara. I was crying (shrieking, to be exact) all the way and I was only at the wheel for 30 minutes.

I miss him so much already.

My driving skills have slightly improved. I actually drove to KLPac, Sentul to send Lene to work and also to pick her up after she finished. Sentul is a car-crazy place !

I was on medical leave yesterday and slept halfway through work today. I have been feeling a bit under the weather since Mr. Sunshine left. Sobs.

I have a couple of resolutions this year but I am not planning to disclose them, just don't wanna jinx anything. Haha.

xoxo
