Through the Wire...

I wrote about my journey to a perfect line of teeth before,
To update (thou I know people couldnt care less), but nonetheless Ill keep writing about it. Hehe

So the wire is now attached
Can you see it?
Its ceramic - Radiance braces anyway.
The doctor told me the chances of people noticing that you have braces on is 5%
Ive tried it yesterday, talked to my friend and he didnt even notice it.
Mission accomplished!

* can you?

* this picture maybe you can

On that note, I am now 7k poorer.

Off to Cambodia for backpacking trip tomorrow. Kinda sexcited but financial problem makes it less sexcited.

Have a good weekend people!!!!

Joyeux Anniversaire à Moi: Cafe Cafe KL

Le meilleur anniversaire jamais...
I was blessed with a thoughtful man in my life
For the effort made despite crazy schedule and long list of 'To Do' in his organizer
Merci beaucoup le chéri

So we went to Cafe Cafe yesterday,
Thou at first I really bought his lie that we are going to some Ikan Bakar place
At first I was like "aaa, ikan bakar ke?"
But nonetheless, off we go to Stadium Merdeka area kekdahnya...

But when we passed the turn to Stadium Merdeka, he did not take it
Hurm this is fishy fishy...
But I decided to just wait and see
Until we reached to this one dodgy street..and I was like errrr....pi mana ni
He kept smiling until we reached one restaurant and wallaaaa...
simplement stupéfiant

We were at Cafe Cafe rupanya.

A very romantic place with nice and cozy ambiance. Candles everywhere...and fresh flowers too. We were seated and there was the menu...full of names that I cant even pronounce.

Nonetheless we ordered these...

* his Duck Confit

* my Lamb Rack

Je l'aime!!!!!

What I can simply conclude is

Je l'aime!!!!!

Merci beaucoup le chéri...

27 and more...

Today I am officially old

I know to some age is just a number,
and ageing is one of the most natural process that every human being go through,
Some love to grow old,
and some even fight it by doing all sort of stuff,
By having some kind of midlife crisis,
or as simple as taking a Botox injection per month

I take comfort of growing old...
I dont take it personally
Some may like to hide their age
That will not work for me as I love the progress of being mature
Thou I wish as much I grew over years, my heights will do the same thing too
I guess that would be the wish that will never be granted

I received tonnes of birthday wishes today
Some are genuine, some were just fake wishes...
One of the sweet wish that I received this morning was from SB
My good friend when I was in Uni...

"Believe that life is worth living and your belief shall help create the fact because life is half spent before we know what it is...Always remember to forget things that made you sad, but never forget to remember the things that made u glad and once happy thoughts get started, you cant
help to feel warm-hearted"

Thank you for all the birthday wishes...
May 2010 be a great year for me

Baby all I want for...

Often when the day is near,
Friends and family longing for this,
So they dont have to crack their head,
Searching for a perfect gift...
A list of what their love ones desire/wish/want/hope for...
A long list of what we call a 'Wish List'

I usually have one,
Not meant for it to be advertise
But more to my own personal checklist of what I want vs what I should get,

This year I don't have any,
As for now I only wish for one thing to happen,


Men always get caught with lies
but Women?
Women always get caught when they follow their bad instinct instead of follow their mind
When they get carried away with emotion instead of using good judgment

I neither can retract my words
nor explain why

I wish I was dreaming
So when I woke up this morning, it did not happen

But I guess this is the moment when I should
"I am screwed"

and not even a screwdriver can fix it

and that makes it double sigh

Sahabat...mengapa kau pergi
Tinggal aku sendiri
Kau tahu ku tak sanggup

Sahabat...ingat lah kau slalu
Jadi yang terbaik
Walau kau tak disini lagi

Sahabat...aku rindu padamu
Datang walau sesaat
Ku ingin kan kau hadir

Aku disini dan menunggu
Diam tanpa dirimu
Kau tahu ku tak bisa
Beranjak terbang dan melayang
tanpa diri mu ku tak bisa dan kembalilah

Sahabat - Aizat

The pain of losing...unbearable

Goodbye Kev!

My fav contestant in TBLA has been eliminated. Kevin was voted out tonight due to lowest percentage of weight loss this week. But come on, how can he beat David and others, his starting weight was already 215kg. That's like 5x of my weight.

His determination is truly inspirational. His sweet personality, one shy guy and went through a lot in his life.

He was denied entry to university due to his weight issue. He only went out at night because he can't stand the insult and people mocking him. His only exercise was when he chew I.e eating.

How can you vote off someone who clearly need this more than anyone? And the blue team motto "Blue all the way" is sickening. They think they are the controller of the game. Blue team are just taking an easy ride.

I am truly heartbroken with this result. I was rooting for Kevin to at least be in the final. My only hope now is for Carlo to win this. Cause I don't want someone like David be crown as TBLA.

1 Suara?

I always love concerts, pretty much actually. Whenever I heard about concerts in town, I will be the first person to check out the info.

Concert gave me this satisfaction, that I honestly can't explain. Some may complaint much; "too many people, too loud, etc...etc" but I don't seem to care much about those. My adrenalin strikes high everytime I heard the word concert.

So when I heard about 1Suara concert @ Istana Budaya, I got pretty sexcited! First of all, AIZAT!!!! Yours truly never like any male singer, Malaysian singer to be exact. But aizat is different case. I'll tell you why...

Never in my 27 (well almost) years of life, I adore male singer in malaysia. Well except M.Nasir...there are some singer whom I think talented but there's always something that will make me no longer interested to adore them.

Aizat has a powerful voice, good personality and good future ahead of him. I like him since his AF time. Yah I watched AF. When he sang, he managed to make me want to at least sing along and there's one time I burst to tears after I heard him sang anuar zain's song. Huhu

So I guess the concert would be the golden opportunity for me to hear him sing; live. And its worth it. Even though with sucky seats, swollen gum and etc etc, I had fun!!!

And the best part was when he sang "Lagu Kita". It was beautiful...

All in all, I love the concert except the part when siti was on stage. Get your own concert laaaaa

Time Will Tell...

I am a person who values time. If you know me well enough you will know that my patience tolerance can only tolerate 15mins delay in anything. Max!!! Once, I broke a relationship when I was made waiting for 2 hours. I figured if he can't value time as much as I do, that he can kiss his sorry ass goodbye.

After almost 6 days hibernation period in mi casa, I value time even more. The 15mins I was out buying some 'Glo' and bread were a truly great time for me.pathetic you may think; sigh...if you are in my sorry shoe you will understand

Hibernation also taught me how to balance out patience and emotion. I failed to strike a perfect balance in the beginning but now I guess its all has been sorted out quite good.

Its amazing when you have so much time in your day but there is nothing that you can do to fill it. You've tried this and that, but still you feel as if you did not accomplished anything.sigh, I wonder why...

The long weekend is not something that I look forward least not with my condition now. Nasib ada concert aizat esok but how can I sing my lungs out with this stiff and muncung lips. Double sigh...

I think I better stop writing now. Its not good to implant such a negative and bad aura in people's mind especially through reading. They tend to get carried away...

I'm reading The Time Traveler's Wife far I'm loving it...

The excruciating pain

Day 4:

Have your ever has someone punch you like right smack on your face?

I have not...

But I can imagine the pain and sort of feeling it now.

Yours truly underwent some major dental surgery last Sunday, and doc Julin I wasn't some bravo and cool girl who ran a race after a dental surgery. Hahaha. That would be too much. I had the surgery after the race, the next morning to be exact.

So after 4 days, my face is still swollen and looks like I have one bloody big goose egg in my mouth. I have pictures but I dare not to show. I fear for anyone who has a heart problem might have a problem after seing those.

The only food that I ate for the past 4 days were bubur MekD and Campbell Soup. Once it tried eating nasi with soup, it went haywire. My jaw hurt so bad and hurt so bad.

From 3 days mc extended to 5 days mc. If I am in a good condition I will be very thankful for the extension which allow me to go IKEA, watch movie and stuff but NO. I was and still am my cheap couch best friend and my TV's new gf for these past 4 days. You may ask, "why so lazy? Go la kemas rumah ke, knitting ke?" Sigh...the pain is unbearable. Once I tried to mop my kitchen floor, I only managed to get it half done. I can't bend too low, as I will feel my jaw was hit with 1tonne of rocks.

Haih. Who would have thought that it can be this hard. Pity bootak for his energy drenched to its last drop everyday driving back and forth to get me my meal and stuff that I needed. Its not like I'm lazy to drive, but doctor said "jangan, nnt terhentak gusi ke apa ke its not good"

Double sigh...

Last check made on my gum noted another bleeding area, again. Haih...

Putrajaya Night Run 2010

Venue: Precint 3, Putrajaya
Time: 9pm
Date: 6 February 2010
Distance: 7.7km

It is not even a marathon. It is just a short distance run. But I figured why not just run the Malaysia first night marathon. Would be fun I guess. But I was totally wrong.

The starting point was located in front of Perbadanan Putrajaya, where there was 2 separate starting grid for the categories where the real marathon runners were at the left side and the fun runners at the other side.

I didn't see the flag off for the 42 and 21km as we were busy running around getting ready. By the time we came back to the starting point, it was almost gun off for our category. This time we ran with big group of friends, najib + farah, atietot, zam + soraya while hassan running for the 5km race.

The first 2km was easy. Bootak decided to do his PB so he took off early. I was left with tot and I left her when she waved her hand and said "pergi je dulu"

So I did, I ran with 5.5 pkm for the first 2km and I felt slightly uneasy on my knee. I was like "damn not this soon" as I wasn't wearing my knee guard today. I slowed down and try to maintain 6pkm. My head felt little bit dizzy, I figured this must be the heat. Haih...I continued my run and when I reach the first water station, I didn't stop. Figured my power bar endurance lime drink is sufficient for now.

Suddenly I felt something on my ankle. This must be the reaction due to my knee as when I'm running with injured knee, u tend to carry your weight with the other side of your leg. Gosh, I still have almost 3.7km to go at that time. There was the second water station. I took the mineral water and sip it only to realise that by doing that I put more burden to my bladder. Huh, this is not good. (Port - a - loo at starting grid was a disaster so I decided to keep my urine with me)

I passed by one junction where lots of car were honking, waiting for their turn to drive off. And of course no police traffic around. One BMW almost took off at a bad time where runners were still crossing the road. I feel like I want to throw some rocks to the front mirror. Chill man!!! can't really blame those who don't understand why we run these kind of race.

My hamstring felt diff. I was literally limping. This is not good. I guess 3 weeks without training at all has finally bite me. This is the cons that I have to swallow for not practising.

I finished the remaining 2km with a sore feelings knowing there's no way I can secure the medal. Haih...and I did the unforgivable act. I walked. was at least for 5mins before I think this is ridiculous.

I think I've lost it. And when I saw the finishing line, the least that I can do was smile and did the 'peace' thingy to almost anyone with camera along the road. At least I win the photo right? As I ran towards the finishing line and enter the lane for N category, one marshall gave me a card. So I thought okie maybe this is for the meal, only to realise that I actually finished at position 300++ I think. I can't really see the number. So I asked "uncle, I got medal ke?" And he with his big eyes rolled at me "ya la, first 400 what"


That was the highlight of the race tonight.

It was my PW I guess.
But nevermind, ill try again for energizer. This time real business, 21km

Sunday, February 7, 2010


I've done the process, the initial phase of my journey to a perfect line of teeth. The surgery to remove the 'hidden teeth' underneath my sinus bone was done this afternoon. After that, the removal of 52, 63 and 64 took place. It was a gruelling 2 hours.

With 7 shots of local anaesthetic, my upper lips was literally numb!!! I can't even feel my lips let alone to gaggle. There's some pics taken by bootak but I rather keep it personal. The image were unbearable.

Now I am resting and recuperating. My gum are really sore; feels like someone just punched my face. Haih...

I hope tomorrow will be better...

Don't Stop Believing!

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Paying anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

- Don't Stop Believing -

I am now officially addicted to Glee...
The season that strike a bomb to US viewers recently
This show was nominated for 3 category in the recent Golden Globe Award
and aced themselves the Best Television Series Comedy or Musical

When the world when hoo haa about it,
I wasnt interested at all to know about it,
Now that the Golden Globe recognize it,
It has now turned me into DVD Box Set sucker for episode per episode
My last weekend was all about Glee
2 days back to back episodes of it, where I was literally eat Glee, drink Glee, shower Glee and all about Glee.

To those who has yet to watch it
Pls do so...
Cause it kick ass!!!!

Run, Run and Run

I have not run my LSD for so long already
The last time I ran long distance was 21km, which was during PBIM
Ermmm like what 3 months back?

I have been such a lazy ass all these while
Not even the usual Saturday run
I have skipped that for couple of times already

So, when I registered for 21km for this coming Energizer Night Race
I have second thoughts
"can I run the distance again?"
and can i drag my sorry ass to finish the distance within qualifying time

double sigh

I have to start again, so I guess this Putrajaya Night Marathon can be the kickstart.
Thou it is only for 7.7km
I believe its better than nothing

So to those who participated...
Good Luck and see you there

Attention, pls!!!

Okay I am not announcing anything here...
Instead I would like to draw your attention to something that requires your attention, crisis!!!

Often when we deal with crisis, we tend to know whose with you and vice versa. When dealing with all sorts of crisis, we tend to be highly dependent on people's opinion and views rather than our own. Believe it or not we don't even have the energy to think while dealing with crisis.

This does not mean that we let people to decide for or rather be influenced by others. Of course own view prevails. However, like something which is nice to have but not necessarily must have, other's view is like the glittery candies on top of birthday cakes. Sweet to have, but when its too much, its weighing you down.

I like to be at my own feet when it comes to decision making. Hence sometimes I do not take into account people's view but of course in a certain situation only. However, recently I feel as if people's view matters! Especially in huge decision making thingamagic.

So when people who matters questioned my decision, it got me into thinking whether I am making a good decision...a good choice in life for that matters. Whether I am fully prepared to embrace accountability with me, and whether I am confident enough to carry huge responsibility as my middle name.


I personally don't know what to do...

And my crisis mode people are not here

So that makes it double sigh
