October's Here!

Wow! The months just fly by so quickly, don't they? Before you know it, there's only 2 more months left for 2011. That's pretty nuts, if you ask me!

So far, I'm pretty much on track with my resolutions, believe it or not. I won't say what it is yet, but hopefully by end of December, I'll make a post and show what resolutions I've managed to accomplish and which ones that I have not. I would say it is pretty much 60% at this point. I'm pretty happy with that number, and I still have 2 months left for the other 35%!

I know there are a lot of people who think resolutions are silly but I think short term goals are a great way to make yourself become a more disciplined and motivated person and keep yourself in life with your dreams and ambitions. I honestly don't believe, no matter how old you are, that you can say you no longer have anything to strive for. We all have dreams and when we DO achieve our dreams, there are always new dreams to make, right? Perhaps you've always wanted to have one of those Cocktail Server Jobs? No?

"When you cease to dream, you cease to live" - Malcolm S. Forbes

Anyways, I have found some people to be quite patronising when they find out I still have resolutions that I keep. I don't understand why people these days are so cynical. Granted, if you don't find it easy to keep to your resolutions, then don't try to rain on my parade. Go shower your rain elsewhere.

Oh well, I hope my journey for the rest of the year is only going to get even more exciting.. and I hope yours does too! :)

Feeling Sick-ish

I have been feeling a little bit feverish today. I think I maxed out my energy source the whole time my mother was here. We went out almost every day they were here and ate a whole lot of wonderful stuff (read: durian)! hahah . Now that they're safely back home in KK, I am left here feeling sick and bloated and exhausted!

I need some major R&R time.. but I don't feel like staying at home either. I think what I need is some time out chilling with my friends, grab some pool cues and shoot a game or two. I used to be good at playing pool. Nowadays, I think a 10 year old can play better than me.

Plus, I really wanna go watch THOR this weekend! EEKS!! :)


Yes, maybe that's exactly what I need! :)

RTT: Between Tumblr, Polyvore, Sniffles and Haunted Jelly


I haven't done Random Tuesday Thoughts in a loooong while and although technically, it's already Wednesday (30 mins past midnight), I'm still gonna go with it anyways.

I love Tumblr. I'm addicted to it because they have a plethora of awesome landscape photographs as well as other inspiring photographs that just make me smile. Especially photos of the ocean! I looove looking at beautiful pictures and that's one part why I love it so much. They also have the most hilarious gifs I've seen. So if you're on tumblr, feel free to follow me! I always follow back! ;)

I haven't polyvored in a while. One of my last Polyvore sets was this:

RockinRolla
Let It Rock

That was made over a year ago!! But then again, between blogging, doing blog assignments, tumblr, and twitter, do I really have the online time to do Polyvore? I don't think so. My online time is limited these days.. after all, I do have a family and home to take care of.

My mom and baby sister is coming over this weekend!! YAYYYYYERSS! I'm always STOKED whenever they come even though they turn my home upside down. :) I miss them!! It's been almost a month!!

I haven't stopped sneezing since this afternoon when I caught a whiff of the neighbour downstairs doing some paint work.

Photobucket

My nose is very sensitive to strong scents. Usually chemical-based like paint, deodorant and gasoline. Also Perfume, strong smelling shampoos.. you catch my drift? Ciggie smoke is the worst for my nose, too.

Tonight I saw a haunted dessert. Yes, my friend Caroline, like other fellow bloggers, love taking pics of her yummylicious food.. and she noticed something peculiar in her dessert. Judge the pic for yourself peepz! :) http://pikchur.com/AeSC

I became intrigued when Caroline was asking friends to check out her pic and she said there was something inside her jelly but she didn't say what it was. So here, I am, stupidly looking for a bug or an insect.. and I just couldn't SEE it. So I leaned back in my seat and suddenly, it "APPEARED". Front, right and centre. Beyonce was right. I wasn't ready for this jelly!!

Photobucket

That will definitely make an interesting addition to Caroline's Wordless Wednesday posts. :)

For now, I'm trying to put "jelly girl" out of sight and out of mind. Besides, I'm done being all random!

p/s: To submit your Random Tuesday Thoughts, head on over to Life According To Me by Ane Fallarme.. She's taking over for Keely (she's on hiatus!) for the time being.

New Phone, Please..

I deserve a new phone.

Family and friends complain so much that I don't answer any calls or reply any messages because my phone is hardly around with me. (And when it's with me, I don't get a single call all day long). Sucks, right? Also, my phone battery is a bit zonky and I didn't realize it died on me, therefore it didn't get to remind me of my husband's birthday. *pulls hair*

I don't know how much telephone batteries cost these days.. but wouldn't it be better if said family and friends pool some money and get me an iPhone or something cool like that. I will promise you for sure with a cool phone, I'd have it with me at all times!! LOL! :D

Okay? Deal?

Sunday Evening Blues

I never really quite understood my sister's mood change whenever Sunday evening came around. It normally hits when she feels that Monday is creeping up on her way too fast. I didn't used to feel it because when Buddy was in kindergarten, Monday's weren't such a big deal because his classes start at 8.30pm.

Now that Buddy is in Primary 1, I too, am beginning to feel what my sister feels. After the whole weekend of us sleeping in, getting up at 6am on Mondays is just not my idea of fun. Perhaps it won't be so bad if Buddy actually doesn't FIGHT me every morning because he feels like he doesn't get enough sleep. Even if he does. *rolls eyes* He'll argue that it's still "night time" (6am is still dark out).

I'm also still feeling a little bit under the weather. I don't know WHY that is. It's been like what.. 2 weeks?? I've done all the right things, drink loads of water, get plenty of rest and taken my supplements religiously. As religious as if I were working in one of those healthcare jobs.

Maybe what I need is... FUN, FRIENDS, FAMILY...



and my other favorite four letter word...

......... FOOD!!

Ribeye Steak @ TGIF
Eton Mess @ Serai 
Hope you guys enjoy the remainder of your weekend!

Busy Mode ON

Wow.. it feels so foreign to blog again.

I'd like to tell you guys that I've been away on a vacation and enjoying my spa weekend somewhere....

Unfortunately for me, that was not the case. Despite waking up at 6am daily, I find I don't have as much time now to go online. I feel that things are still the same, my workload is still the same, but life somehow is just not the same now. My priorities have certainly changed and blogging or going online has taken a backseat to everything else. As it should be...

But that doesn't mean I'm gonna stop blogging.. there will be sporadic updates (like this). As of this moment, I have lots of things to do.. things to do with my brother's upcoming wedding. I also haven't bought my flight tickets for my friend's wedding back in KK this February.

Argh! So many things to do, that I need a WireBind machine to compile all my to-do-lists. Also, did I tell you that I babysit these days? Yeah. I've got Buddy's classmate that I babysit regularly. So, that keeps me busy too.

Hope all this busy-ness brings me great business. :) KACHING! :D

See you guys when I see you! LOVES!

Lazy Level = High

I feel so bad sometimes at how badly I neglect my blogs. Even though I have so many things to write about and share, to get started "writing" about it.. well.. it brings on a whole different level of lazy.

What with my mom and sister being here for the past 2 and a half weeks, I've been having too much fun going out daily and enjoying their company. After they went back to KK, I've just been too busy getting used to the whole "Buddy going to school" schedule. It feels like I'M the one that's going back to school. Hahaha maybe it's high time I check out an online university, eh?

Anyways, as seeing it's a Sunday, I decided to take the initiative of at least writing a little something something just for my blog's sake. Hopefully my ramblings will open up the door for me to write more and write something more substantial. :P I just need to get the blogging ball rolling.....


We'll see how it goes, yeah? Peace out, y'all!!

p/s: Anyone know a good and reputable online university for me to check out?

Chaos Reigns!

My home looks like total and utter chaos right now. I am officially banning my mom and sister from doing any more shopping until they get rid of the shopping bags and pack up all their purchases from their recent shopping escapade. Things are everywhere and no amount of cheap flowers at Proflowers can liven up the atmosphere at home. It'll just make it look even more chaotic than it is right now -- not that I think it's even possible.

I think my sister has bought everything possible from accessories, clothes, shoes and bags.. so I know I'm justified in banning them from doing anymore shopping. I just hope they don't have to pay for excess baggage on their flight back to KK! Well, serve them right, if they do. And as long as they help me restoring my home back in order, then I have no problem. LOL! :D

Okay, I've gotta go and TRY my best to get things as tidy as possible!

LATER, GATORS! :D

Lazy Day Sunday

Whenever Sunday rolls around, my body just automatically shuts down and becomes incapable of doing anything productive. Perhaps, blogging is the most productive thing I can do but when it comes to household chores, Sundays really incapacitate me.

Last night I had a lot of fun, though.. I joined my sister and her friends to the launch of the new La Bodega outlet at Empire Shopping Gallery. Free flow of Tapas and drinks, whole night long!! Ooooh it was so good! We ended up staying there pretty much the whole time eating and drinking and playing Monopoly deal. :)

So today, I am gonna relax, put thoughts of Moen kitchen faucets behind me.. and probably get some more blogging done before I launch myself on the couch and catch up with my favorite TV series..

Still Here..

Woww.. it's been almost 3 weeks since I last posted anything here.. FYI, I'm just super busy what with my son's Sports Day last weekend, a wedding to attend the following day and helping to plan a wedding too (my older brother is getting married!! YAY!!)

So, basically, I'm up to my eyeballs with things to do!! Anyways, I just wanted to let you guys know I'm still alive.. and oh, if you noticed, there's a new addition to my sidebar! Anyone looking for jobs, whether it's in retail, teaching or IT Jobs, just check out the Jobberies.com feed on my sidebar!! :D

Anyways, it's Friday!! Hope you guys are geared up for an awesome weekend!! :D

Midnight Ramblings

I know I should already be asleep by now, since I need to get up early to send my son to kindie. Yet, this past week, I haven't been getting much sleep due to "over thinking"... Plus, the weather hasn't been too kind.. it's sweltering hot!!
Don't bother asking me what I've been thinking too much about. If you've been reading my blog, you would know me well enough to know that I would be only be thinking about 4 things..

ways to make more money, losing weight, going for a vacation.. AND losing weight...

*sigh* I've got a couple of wedding invitations in November, and I have a MAJOR event in the near future as well and as you can see from some of my pics, I could do without those extra pounds.. Not to mention, "Washington". Oh don't you dare, mention "Washington"! More on THAT in the future.. stay tuned! :P

Soooo... time to hit those sneaker stores and finally get me equipped with some snazzy shoes, huh?? At least something to get me motivated and inspired! :)

These Cat Kraze sneakers by Baby Phat are pretty sweet!! Though it doesn't look very suitable for jogging.. but for only $39.99, why not?? FYI, you can get this at JimmyJazz.com!

Like A Virgin, You're Madonna


There was talk about "virginity" today while I was tweeting with @TurnUOff, @ladyjava and @mimiahmad. Earlier in the afternoon, I just found out that the 2 former ladies have never eaten at Chilli's restaurant before.. hence the term, "Chilli Virgins". And just an hour ago, I was tweeting with @mimiahmad and found out that she just ate "tosai" for the first time.. So "Tosai Virgin" no more!! Awesome!

After all this "virgin" talk, I remembered that I heard the song Soul Sister by Train on the radio today (Mix.fm) and when it came to the song's lyrics "like a virgin, you're Madonna", I noticed that the word virgin was censored. The word "drug" from the line "watching you was the only drug I need" was censored as well..

Okay, I know there's no winning against the censorship board of Malaysia. The word "suicide" from Edwin McCain's I'll Be, "i'll be love's suicide" was also censored. Fair enough, the word drug and suicide has negative connotations associated with it, so fine. I won't argue with that. (Still how are you going to have a "Say No To Drugs" campaign on air?)

Please make me get it. Tell me how "virgin" is a negative word. What with all the baby dumping cases, and the lack of sex education in schools, don't you think the word virgin should be thrown out there more often?? If people don't know the meaning of it, which I highly doubt, they'll look it up and it's still a good thing, is it not? Look at the Jonas brothers and their purity rings and all their virgin talk about promoting abstinence and NO sex before marriage? How is that negative (even though they get ridiculed for it)??

So please.. If you're from media broadcast or the censorship board, please tell me and make me understand why we can't have the usage of the word virgin on the air. My husband thinks that if the censorship board censors the word "virgin", might as well not play songs like Usher's "Make Love In The Club" or Akon's "Smack That". He has a point you know.. that is, if you wanna go THAT far.

I'm not trying to spark an argument. I just want to get it. Like how I want to get why the The Daily 10 show on E! was canceled, why Coyote never wins against the Road Runner, or why people add me on twitter and I can't follow them back 'coz they protect their tweets and don't approve my request (I feel stalked!). I just want to get it.

Anyways, for this Music Monday, I leave you with a song that I grew up with, a song from the 80's and a song with plenty of "virgins" in it.



p/s: remember that movie years ago, The Virgin Suicides? How do you think that will sound on air.. "The @#$%^& @#%^&*(@"??

Sweet Nothings..

It is 12.10am here on my side of the world.

It's pretty darn quiet right now.. except for the sound of some machinery from across the building. Sounds like a truck being loaded or something. The children and the husband are asleep and my sister is out partying! TGIF!!! Tomorrow I don't have to wake up early to get my son ready for school! Can I get a YEEHAHHH??

So anyways, here I am, doing some online research for nuphedragen an article and I can't help but think of my own struggle with weight loss. I am glad to say, though, that in the past 2 weeks of cutting out some carbs (mainly rice) and some exercise, I have lost some 3kgs. Can I get a HOOORAAAHH???

However, between working out, keeping the husband/children/sister happy and Mafia Wars (the only game I am currently playing), I find it quite hard to get organized enough to update my 3 blogs. That being said, I am not throwing in the towel to blogging just yet, though.. I think for the past few weeks, I just ran out of steam a.k.a. ideas. But fret not, a recent retail therapy fix has certainly put me back in the mood! Can I get a WOOT WOOT????

Anyways, I know I'm rambling right now and nothing makes sense to my readers.. but I gotta say, it does feel good to be back to blogging and ramble about random nothingness... Glad to get my mojo back!

RTT: The Act Of Being Random

randomtuesday

It's Tuesday again.. that means it's time for Random Tuesday Thoughts! Thank to The Un Mom for giving me a chance to be random for no reason.



I wanna watch Kick-Ass again. It was super funny. Violent, obscene and vulgar. But hilarious, touching and fun at the same time. Chloe Moretz was suuuper adorable. My sister wants to adopt Hit Girl. As for Aaron Johnson, I can't believe a hot 19-year old like him has a 40+ year old baby momma.

Both my cell phones are almost dead. I can't read any text that you guys send me so don't bother. I can still receive and make calls though. That's what's important.

My friends always ask me if I know any fat burners that really work. Gosh, if I knew, I wouldn't be bursting out of my seams now, would I?

True friendship is like sound health, the value of it is seldom known until it be lost. - Charles Caleb Colton

I feel like eating toast all the time.

My son's birthday is coming up this Friday. He'll be turning 6. I don't have anything planned yet. He last had a party when he was four years old. Here's Part 1 and Part 2 of his 4th birthday celebration photos. I didn't realize how small Allie was back then!

This is my 1, 243rd post.

I haven't Polyvore-d in a couple of days.

I'm going to cook cabbage for dinner. The second time I'll be cooking it today. My kids love it. I have a new specialty. huh. Just cabbage.

The lady who teaches piano in my building charges RM50 for 30 mins once a week. That's RM200 a month. I can't afford it. :(

I wanna watch Kick-Ass again.

Stress vs. Happy Thoughts!

These past few days I've been a little bit busy doing some personal stuff and it's got me stressed. I'd rather not get into it here.. but I've gotta say long distance moving is stressful!! Poor Debbs, she has to listen to me whine about it and getting all tensed up about everything.

p/s: I'm so grateful to have a friend like Debbie who listens to me and who hears my problems out. Unlike some people who pose as a best friend but never even takes the time to find out what's going on in my life and drops their problems into your lap ALL the FREAKIN' time!! sigh

But yeah, no use getting riled up over selfish peepz. Just got to think more HAPPY THOUGHTS! Speaking of which, that's the theme for my new MSE template makeover! So excited!

Random Tuesday Thoughts: New Look, Desires and More..

randomtuesday

Okay so I'm a little late in publishing my FIRST Random Tuesday Thoughts, but don't be mistaken, this was written on time but it's been rotting in my drafts for a while. So anyways, let's get it movin', shall we..

Monday started off well and although I wanted to keep with my usual segment of Music Monday, I totally forgot about it and in the morning, the songs I thought of posting just didn't feel "right" anymore.

I've been working on a new header for my blog! Yay.. My Sweet Escape is getting a new look! FINALLY! I've been meaning to change my look for a while now but I just keep putting it off. But I'm happy to say that hopefully by this coming Monday, MSE will have a different look!! And yeah, this time, it's all ME! No one is helping me out with this new look! LOL!

Debbs and I have been going crazy chatting all week about everything and nothing in between and one thing's for sure, my desires to own my dream house is just getting stronger.. and I learned that we should avoid the Pottery Barn website and every other interior design sites if we want a good night's sleep! sengihnampakgigi (I've been dreaming about log furniture ever since)

Despite having a lot of friends getting married left and right, believe it or not, I have only received 3 invitation cards to my name. The 3rd card, I received today. Some have invited me through Facebook, but honestly, I'm happier to receive an invitation card. Anyways, that means I have a wedding to attend in April and have nothing to wear. sigh

Last but not least, I've just gotta say this. I personally think that a person needs to earn the right to be called someone's BEST FRIEND. You can't just take things for granted and call yourself a "best friend" based on the longevity of one's friendship. Heck.. even Paris Hilton needs a reality show to find one. So it's not easy being a best friend and if you want that title, you've gotta earn it. Just sayin'.

My Heat Escape Plan

My husband and I are supposed to go out and buy a cooling fan since our ceiling fan went bust! And in this heat, well, if I don't get a cooling fan soon, I am definitely going to melt before your very eyes..

Since today is the hubby's day off from work, I hope that we not only get a fan but spend some time at the mall, catch a movie and escape this terrible heat! Unfortunately, my husband has an aversion towards malls.. and he knows that I love malls alot. So in times like this, one has to be super fast to get first dibs on the day's plan.

This time, he beat me to the punch and said after getting the fan, he needs to deal with his auto insurance and he needs to bring his car in for tuning or something like that. merajuk It's just an excuse to not spend time at the mall.. I know it! I can feel it in my bones!

Oh well, it's not like I can go shopping anyways.. maybe next week.. When I withdraw my earnings... sengihnampakgigi


What A Dim-Wit!

When I first moved in here to KL and went shopping for furniture and such, I was adamant about having an allergen free mattress that protects us from dust mites and bed bugs because the children and I are allergic to dust and the children's skin are very sensitive.

But I just realized, like, TODAY, how silly I was because I didn't get allergy mattress covers for my mattress!! Now what exactly is the point a mattress that is allergy free if my bed covers are not??

I think I'm having an airhead moment.

Million Dollar Spam

I am so sick and tired of getting those lottery ticket winnings being e-mailed to me.. Fair enough, they go straight to spam.. but I check my spam since some e-mails do tend to go astray. Thing is, don't these guys ever give up?? It's so ridiculous! To date, I am a multi-billionaire 10x over! around Yeah. Right.

Aside from "those" spam e-mails, I also get loads of health e-mails.. some are worth reading actually, like how to lower your blood sugar, or articles on breast cancer.. even an article about the cure for hemorrhoids. But of course, I also get my fair share of "enhancement" or "the little blue pill" e-mails!

So annoying.. luckily for us though, all it takes is just one click to send them all to OBLIVION!!

Wishing and Hoping..*

Today, the hubs and I submitted the application form for my 6 year old son's 1st grade (Primary 1) school. After running around half the day yesterday getting all sorts of forms filled and documents photocopied, I can't help but be taken back in time to when I was applying for college.

Seriously, I never thought registering your child to 1st grade requires so much.. I was so wrong! Not only were applications open since back in 2009 for the 2011 class, a place into the school isn't guaranteed either.

The Education Department will have to review your application before giving the thumbs up. If your application to that particular school is denied, then they will list other options for you to register at.

It might be old news to those of you with schooling children, but I felt like a tanduk , not knowing the whole application protocol. I sure do hope that Buddy gets in though, 'coz it's only a 10 minute (tops!) walk from home. It's so convenient considering I don't drive..

Anyways, we will only be receiving an answer by mid year. Till then, it's just a lot of WAITING...




...and wishing and hoping and thinking and praying and planning and dreaming..



Note: The vid has nothing to do with my rants, btw..
