went to Penang last weekend for my bridal gowns trying. i've tried on about 15 pair of gowns and chosed 7 of them for my bridal photography which has been postpone to December and 2.5k was gone due to gowns upgrading =__="" i seriously think bridal industry has a bright future. imagine a pair of so-called brand new arrival/design gown charges you about RM 800. and if you want to wear it during your actual wedding night, the price to pay is RM 2500! what the.....
it was a heartache, but EK said its a once-a-life-time thingy so its worth to invest on it. i even saw a few really nice gowns there but i couldnt wear them :( blame it to my beautiful body line. hahaha. what to do? i'm originally heavy bottom.

anyway, it took us 3 hours++ to finish trying the gowns and some further discussions. thanks to Cr…

8 Powerful Ways to Release Pressure from Your Life

1. Don’t listen too much to others.
Or worry about what they might think. Or getting their validation. If you use too much time and energy to focus on these three things you may be heading down a pretty harmful road. An important part of this is to not to see yourself through the eyes of others. Doing that can build a self-image and expectations that become very hard to live up to. It can make you end up filled up with negative feelings and that won’t help anyone.

(yea, believe in yourself, believe in whatever you're doing)

2. Forget about perfectionism
Perfectionism is pretty pointless. It's just you putting unnecessary pressure on yourself and thereby reducing your ability to do excellent work. Take a look at the next point to find a better replacement for perfectionism.

(i STRONGLY agree on this. nobody is perfect! i always keep this in mind)
p/s: i would like to dedicate this point to that someone

3. Focus on the process, not on the outcome.
Detaching from the possible outcomes an…

九皇爷游行

今天是九皇爷诞的第七天,也是我开始吃素的第一天。我每年都会在九皇爷诞的最后三天吃素,从大学开始就酱了。也没什么特别原因啦,一开始是为了玩玩而已,所以就跟妈妈一起吃素。后来觉得,其实久久一次的吃素也是很好啊。没有肉类,只有素菜水果,身体也觉得比较健康。哈哈!
昨晚,Kampung Boyan 有九皇爷游行。kiasu的我们,七早八早就在Prima cafe 边吃边等着看游行。但是东西也吃完了,游行都还没到叻。。最后,游行终于走到Prima cafe 这里了,那时已经是9.30pm了。很多妹妹和aunty都有丢糖果,面包给我。哈哈,不错吧?都那么老了,还有得拿糖果。。:p

热闹的印度神游行



看得出这座神不轻咯,每当停下来时,他们就快快把椅子垫在下面


美丽的花车

相片不是很美啦,因为是用手机拍的。。别见怪哦。。 游行在十点左右就完了,而我们也各自回家睡觉咯。。 p/s: 第一次读我的华文部落,是不是很不惯呢?;)

Lose weight while you work

Not sure if any of you see this at Yahoo front page yesterday. i was attracted by the title ;)

here goes how:

1. Just add water

Keeping H20 at the ready will give you something to put in your mouth besides sweets from your neighbor's candy bowl. And when you're hydrated, science has found your body does everything more efficiently—including burning calories. Fill a reusable water bottle with ice water before you leave home, and refill it throughout the day
(as for me, i'm using a one liter water bottle and sometimes will refill it. but to me, i prefer warm water than cold one)

2. Set an exercise meeting

Protect your exercise time by putting sweat sessions in your calendar just as you would meetings with your most important client. When the day gets busy or you're tempted to surf gossip sites on your lunch hour rather than take to the treadmill, seeing your commitment in print will motivate you to get to the gym.
(well, i cant slip out to workout during working hours, but i at…

The ugly truth

I know, this is an outdated movie. i just bought the clear version of DVD and watched it few weeks back.
its a typical love comedy. Abby(Katherine Heigl) is a morning show producer and Mike(Gerard Butler) happens to be a love guru/host for the TV show called The Ugly Truth. they started knowing each other with hatred. Mike then taught Abby on how to win her neighbour Colin's heart. and when Abby is dating Colin, she realised she has fallen in love with Mike too. the ending?? of course both Abby and Mike are in love. otherwise, i wont say its a typical love comedy ;)

2-3 mangoes
50ml condensed milk (i use Teapot brand)
50ml whipping cream (i use dairy cream)

Cut mangoes(preferably full riped) into cubed size. blend them until they become pureed.


add in condensed milk and whipping cream and keep blending. pour them into moulds/containers and keep in freezer for at least 1 hour before serving. super easy right?

tada!! slurppp~

Surrogates

The story tells about the high end technology in the near future. everybody has their own surrogates while the real self can be stayed at home, controlling and watching every movements and actions by their own surrogates. agent Tom Greer (Bruce Willis) takes the mission to stop the operation on destroying every surrogates.

its amazing to see what graphics and computers can do these days. however, the story is abit dull in the beginning. the climax is almost towards the end of the movie..
