Praying for the best

My thoughts are with the people in Bangkok Thailand. Even after days since the flood, things seems bad and the whole situation is terrible.

I've never been to BKK before but it's definetely in my places-to-go wishlist. I've heard so much about it and I really plan to go! The food, the shopping and everything!

Now it's time to stop complaining and think about how lucky we are here (At least we face lesser disasters than other countries in the world). Let's pray things will be alright soon!

Random post

Happy Diwali and happy holiday! (Which almost comes to end soon....)

Just came back from Penang, spent hours in Neway singing my lung out, ate like there's no tomorrow, and took a walk at Straits Quay which I've never been before (jakun).
That's how I spent the Deepavali holiday.

I could have had a few photos to share but I dint take any photos this time and the camera was sitting nicely in my bag. I think I really lost the mojo to blog because last time, I used to take photos everywhere =_=

Enough ranting, time to bed now. Good night everyone!~

Just won't give up

Facebook is being widely used these days so I think we all should exercise precaution when accepting friend's requests and also not revealing too much personal information.

Surely we'll receive friend's requests on and off and for myself, there're these several people who came requesting as friend over and over again, even after I've rejected the requests =_= Til the extend I directly delete the request when I see it's the same person (even though we have some mutual friends).

*for illustration purpose only*

You see I don't simply accept requests (call me one kind, lansi or whatever) unless I know that person or he/she leaves a personal message of who he/she is (may be he/she is a friend of my friend or may be we've seen each other before). And I won't simply add others as friends just because they're popular but in actual fact we don't know each other (or I'll at least include a personal message).

I mean, no doubt FB is a great way to keep in touch with people from everywhere but if too much, that's not the meaning of it already. It's not that we're competing to see who has the highest number of friends......

And one more thing I'd like to share is, some people are just weird. They came requesting as friend but they keep their profile limited (so you can't see their infor and other photos of their faces), and worse of all, the profile picture is a cat/dog/scenery/a celebrity face/a quote and you-name-it! And they also don't include any message telling who they are. Funny don't you think?

Have you encounter similar cases? What's the key thing that make you accept that request if you don't know him/her? Mutual friends?

p/s: This post is just to share my personal experience and not intend to offense anyone.

Latest addiction

I'm currently addicted to cooking programs showed in Astro channel 703 (AFC) and 711 (StarWorld). Here are my top 3 favourites:

Licence to grill

Image taken here

Though some of the episodes are of few years ago, I love watching how Robert Rainford prepares and grills all the dishes. Of course most of the dishes he cooked are of high cholesterol, but I wont gain any weight just by watching, LOL. He's really a good host and good cook, I always think that man who cooks well is very sexy! :P

Masterchef US

Image taken here

Host by Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot. This is another exciting reality show to watch. It's fun watching how the contestants compete with each other and come out with their own ideas, as well as back stabbing and critic about others. Sometimes I really salute the contestants because they are so creative in cooking even though the time is short, and they know lots of cuisine! I will definetely fail, haha :P

Hell's Kitchen

Image taken from here

Host by the famous Gordon Ramsay, I enjoy watching this very much! He is just too strict and fierce in front of the contestants, don't make him mad because 4 letter words would come out from his mouth anytime! Whether they do it on purpose for the show, as long as the audiences enjoy, I guess it doesn't really matter.

I love these shows, but when it comes to cooking on my own, I'll probably give some excuses and run away, LOL. Well, it all depends on the mood la actually :P

Anyway, weekend is here, enjoy yours! ^^

Yours truly with the lovely bride, Annie. We are friends for 20 years already!! ^^

Quick shot with the bride before she gets busy!

Stepped into the restaurant at 8pm sharp

You'll agree that, friend's wedding is the best time for friend's gathering like this, when we take lots of lots of photos!

Best friend's wedding: Morning session

Just realise that I have not blog about my best friend's wedding which happened a week ago.

Went to her bachelorette night, she served buffet dinner which I think most people does...

The next morning, we arrived at her house early to get things prepared.

Obviously, the theme color is purple ;)

Single shots with some of us. Love her make up and hair style

4 stages of games for the brothers (heng dai)

This is none other than the best part of the whole session ;)

Porridge with Guinness Stout, the taste was horrible =_=

The bridegroom, WN, is a joker in our gang. He sang the declaration of love to his wife, instead of reading them ^^

Yay finally! ;)

The newly wed with their handsome heng dai and pretty ji mui :D

Hubby and I with the wedding car

Later on, we moved to the groom's house and took more photos in their room.

Love this shot!

Flying kisses

Some final photos before leaving the couple to let them take some rest. I understand how tired it is. Attended this reminds me alot of my wedding last year ;)

Hope you enjoy the photos and I shall blog about fun wedding dinner next~

Real Steel 2011

Image source

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Dakota Goyo, Evangeline Lilly

It's a very sci fi movie where robot boxing is so popular and an ex boxer, Charlie (Hugh Jackman) fights his way to become champion using all types of advance robots. Joined by his 11 year old son, Max (Dakota Goyo), they amaze the world by using a discarded robot found in the trash.

I like the idea of robot boxing and it's really excited watching them fight, though I'm not sure how feasible it is in reality. Anyway, I think the director really worked it by featuring Hugh Jackman as the main actor cause he fits the character so well!

Personal rating: 4/5

Combating flu/cold

I caught a flu lately and it's really irritating. Well actually it's not really a serious kinda flu, just that I sneeze alot and thus cause runny nose. I know taking Vitamin C is good but apart from that, there're lots of natural common food which can help combat flu too. Here's what I found from this website.

1. Black/Green Tea
I dint know green tea helps! Now more reason for me to drink green tea! ;)

2. Garlic

Image from here

I love garlic and I can top it with plain rice, seriously. And I think you'll agree that garlic is the best thing to eat with bak kut teh ;) The only bad thing about it is, have to deal with a smelly mouth later :P

3. Oyster
Oyster? Seriously? Well, I don't think it's a common food anyway, and I only eat cheese baked oysters cause I'm afraid of the raw taste.

4. Yogurt

Image taken from here

Yogurt has been my favourite snacks, Imma stock up my fridge with lots of them now!

5. Orange-fleshed vegetables
Pumpkins and sweet potatoes are 2 great sources! Not really a pumpkin lover but now have to try to love it.....

Burfday 2011

Birthday this year was a blast, having to celebrate it with the whole gang of good friends and best of all, it's the same day as my best friend's wedding! Such a special celebration!

My ex colleagues had given me an advance celebration as well, they treated me to a good lunch and bought me a cake. You can read about it at Yvonne's blog. Thanks and really appreciate it, ladies ;)

Anyway, on the actual day, apart from helping out my friend Annie on her big day, she arranged a birthday celebration at a leisure house at Taiping, after attended her wedding dinner.

Birthday cake from the bride, a 1.5kg blueberry chocolate cake

Before the clock strikes 12, the whole gang sang song for us (another guy friend celebrate his birthday on the 9th) in 3 different languages, LOL

And I wished myself a happy birthday too

Hubby was as happy as the birthday girl that night haha

A candid shot

Make a wish

Ready to blow the candles. The guys got crazy and started to play the icing cream on people's faces =_="

A group photo with the ladies and the bride (in denim vest in front). The guys were having their party outside while us chit chat in the room

It's been a while since I last receive so much presents.... Cause to some of us, the older we get, the lesser presents we receive, it feels a lil odd to receive presents when we are actually growing older (unless from closest family and partner).

Angry Birds biscuits from a guy friend (so cute I actually plan to keep it :P)

Lovely travelling photo album

Little black dress

Sun block

Sleeping mask

Souvenirs from Bali and swiss rolls all the way from Singapore, from Evelyn

Now you must be wondering what did my hubby gave? Haha, sorry no special present from him cause I get cash from him daily so I guess that's the best present, LOL.

Anyway, it is definetely a memorable birthday celebration and I would like to thank you (you know who you are) once again for all the wishes, celebration, thoughts and presents! Muacksss~
