big day is coming in exactly 2 weeks :o its really shocking realising how fast time flies... i started to somehow, feel the mood of getting married. its a real mixed feeling of excited, happy, nervous, scare and sad...
excited and happy because its a once in a life time event and ok, wedding is suppose to be happy la right?
nervous and scare because as a bride-to-be, i dont know how well can i perform during that time.. will i be ok? will i look good? will everything goes smooth? and the list goes on.........
sad because not able to stay a little longer at our new home which we've moved in in March last year :S
anyway, i hope everything will be smooth! all the best!

i'm sure many of us are often down with works and most of the time, getting frust and upset with users/works/bosses etc etc...
perhaps we can try these simple ways of making ourselves happier at work:
1. Never say “yes” on the phone; instead, say, “I’ll get back to you.” When you’re actually speaking to someone, the desire to be accommodating is very strong, and can lead you to say “yes” without enough consideration.
(i never know this simple way of replying people can make me happier! should have done it long time ago...)
2. Go outside at least once a day, and if possible, take a walk. The sunlight and activity is good for your focus, mood, and retention of information.
(yea, usually we'll go out during lunch break. thats the most valuable moment we all looking forward to)
3. Let yourself stay ignorant of things you don’t need to know
(good, this is so important. sometimes, not knowing something is way better than knowing something...)
4. Say “Good morning” to everyone.
(a simple greeting can put a smile on people's face =) )
5. Periodically, have lunch with co-workers. This can be a time to talk about personal life, and so become better friends, or to talk about work, so that everyone has a bigger picture of what’s going on in the office—both good results.
(we do this almost every working days. we either going to have lunch or window shopping. you'll surprise how fast we do it within that short 1 hour :P oh ya, not to mention, gossiping is a must-do too :P)
6. Lighten up
(i think this is the main important tip of all...)

on the 3rd day, hubby and i went watching 14 blades during lunch time. right after movie, Boon called up asking us to buy some BBQ thingy which he missed preparing =_= the traffic in town was heavy but we got no choice but to help him. perhaps last minutes shopping is more fun? :/
late in the evening, we arrived at Boon's place and started preparing the food.

Donnie Yen, Zhao Wei, Wu Zhun, Kate Tsui, YuWu Qi
this is so far the only movie i've watched in cinema during CNY. Taiping Sentral was jam pack during CNY and needless to say, there were always long queue at the cinema.
however, EK wanted to watch this as he's always a big fan of Donnie Yen. he likes nothing but Donnie's real kung fu.
i have to say his kungfu is really nice to watch! ;)
full synopsis please click here
CNY has come to fifth day. i had a very busy CNY this year i dont know why, because basically all i did was just those typical CNY activities like friends gathering, visiting relatives, eat and drink. somehow i feel that time is not enough! and i definetely dint have enough rest these few days.. zZz...
dint took much photos this time, weather is freakingly hot i dint have the urge to make up and camwhoring. worst, there was no electricity at home during the 1st and 2nd CNY midnight. i heard several areas in Taiping were affected too =_=""
will update more about CNY soon. since today's the first day of work, i wish everyone and myself, hoi kong tai kat! 开工大吉!! ;)

CNY is getting closer! i'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of you, a happy chinese new year! gong xi fa cai! wishing you abundance of wealth, health and fortune!
Also, wishing everyone out there, Happy Valentines Day! <3
i might go on a short hiatus and will be back next week!
til then, have a great holidays!! :D
ok i admit, i watch it because of leng zai Louis Koo too! *blush*
anyway, i am abit disappointed with this movie. no doubt it's funny, but the story line is totally driving me crazy. it's not logic at all, but i think thats what Raymond Wong's movies are all about. not really recommended unless you dont really mind.

last Saturday, i accompanied EK to attend MCB Industries annual dinner. FIL was supposed to attend this but since he needed to attend other dinner, so he assigned us to go. the dinner had already started when we arrived, so we were assigned to sit with a table of all MAN. to be honest, i was the only girl so i think those people will somehow draw their attention towards me. but just one glance is enough, right? but there was this guy(about my age) who's really irritating! not only did he keep looking at me, but i think he even snapped my photo using his hp! i hope its me who is sensitive, but EK did felt the same thing. damn irritating you know! i did my best to turn my face to the stage. i was very uncomfortable the whole night, sitting there with a group of male strangers, and whats more this physco who's really irritating! so i urged EK to leave the place earlier.
damn, i still remember his pian tai face!! >=(
i only came to know about this annual dinner on Friday. if i knew it earlier, i will definetely reject. EK could attend by himself or drag SIL along or whoever la, i dont care! it's very boring to attend such functions and now, this physco has left even worse experience to me :(

Cryst had signed up her wedding photography package so i think her BIG day is coming real soon! :D
Annie is also planning her wedding and mostly will be held next year :D
a couple of friends have got their own house so i bet i'll get their red bomb soon too! :D
speaking about cake, i now realise that the common 3 layers wedding cake cost about RM 200++ (from Ipoh Bakery), and about RM 700++ if we order from La Promise Bakery. did you notice? it's RM 700++ for a 3-layers wedding cake!! call me jakun but i really dint aware of that. he said most of the ingredients from La Promise bakery is imported from England thats why it's expensive. but i have to admit, cakes from this bakery is really tastier compared to other bakery. but on second thought, i think we're not going to order such an expensive wedding cake. i mean, its important to save as much as we can. furthermore, its not that we dont have other alternatives right? plus, how many guests will actually really savor the cake? :S

i found an interesting topic this morning, gift ideas for your partner based on the length of your relationship.
1. Less than 3 months
If you’ve just started dating, keep your gift casual. At this point, anything expensive or too personal will send a scary I-like-you-a-little-too-much message. his favourite DVD or books is nice enough ;)
2. 3-6 months
This is a tricky in-between phase: You’re an official couple, but are still getting to know each other. Impress him by finding something creative that’s totally him. for example, if he's into taking pictures, buy him a tripod or camera gadgets.
3. 7-11 months
Okay, things are starting to get serious (even if he’s yet to admit it). A fun gift for this stage in the relationship is an experience you can have together, so you’ll build more shared memories. Try tickets to a concert or a football game.
4. 1-2 years
You’ve crossed over into the long-term commitment zone, so this is a great time to commemorate your relationship or show off how well you know him. Frame a cute picture of the two of you (have it printed out nicely, in black and white), or find something that will remind him of a fun time you had together. You can spend a bit more now that you’re pretty serious ($100-$200, depending on your budget) on a big-ticket item.
5. More than 3 years
After years of birthdays and holidays together, it gets tougher and tougher to come up with surprising gifts. A lot of women just grab stuff he needs, like socks or new button-downs, which is nice and all...but boring. Instead, get him a present where he’ll learn something new. If he’s adventurous, book him an exciting experience, like a flying lesson or hang gliding.
details please click hereso, anything in mind already? ^^

to be honest, i dint really know how it'll be after having kids. but i know i'll get to know that soon. both EK and I love kids, but we somehow have different point of views. i still wanted to experience some couple life together after moving in with him, but he wanted to have kids quick. we'll both end up with no conclusion whenever we come to talk about this topic. sometimes, his egoism really irritates me. i know he loves kid and want to have our own baby but then, i believe we need some planning. may be he's comfortable with his financial and have no worries but what about me? i think it's not easy to cope with the pregnancy thingy... :S
anyway, i've promised myself to be a better wife so i will try my best. i hope so does him. the upcoming life will be more challenging so i hope we can both face it together. we'll talk, respect and tolerant with each other, right dear?
early Happy Valentines to you! <3

unlike Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga has a total different kinda sense of fashion. her look is somewhat special, but... not those kind that i can accept =_=" especially her shoes.. anyway, i still like most of her songs. she's so young but yet already a shining star. even the late MJ wanted to work with her

Peanut cookies is one of my favourite during CNY. since it's only 2 weeks away to CNY, i've decided to try baking it on my own... actually it's really easy! all you need are:
then add in oil and mix everything evenly. when the dough is ready, form them into small round doughs
