Is What We Want Really the Best for Us?

There were many, many circumstances when I thought my world is falling apart, or I felt like the whole world is against me when I didn’t get or achieve something that I wanted. (Don’t worry guys, it’s not something I’m proud of.) But yeah, I am pretty much a determined and persuasive person should I really want something.…

Oh My Bahasa Melayu!

The other day, my colleagues and I were talking about our difficulty writing letters and proposals in Bahasa Melayu. A simple letter could take me almost half a day to complete. To be honest I think my Bahasa Melayu 20 years ago (that was the year I took my SPM, and I was pretty good…

Fill in the Blanks

I must say that I’m grateful that CheeseBoy is doing all the blog post this week instead of me.That is, of course, after he grew tired of me complaining about his absence from the blog. I’m having writer’s block (and working late many nights), so it’s time for CheeseBoy to fill in. CheeseBoy also made…

Shake It Off, Shake It Off

T-Swift’s latest single, “Shake It Off” has gone on top of the charts. Wondered what the fuss is all about. But then I looked into the lyrics. Yeah, she has a point. A few good points actually. A very positive song. Sums up what I’ve been saying for the past year. No matter what people…

Game junkie no more!

Those who know me well know that I’m a certified game junkie. My iPhones and iPad are full of games. (Exactly why I’m famous with younger cousins and my friends’ children 😀 ) But guess what? I have not been playing games for more than a month now. I know some (which includes my darling sister)…

[Must Watch!] Best Hari Raya 2014 TV Commercials

Wow. Time sure flies by. Really felt like we just started fasting a few days ago. Now it’s almost Aidilfitri. After a long hiatus of good aidilfitri television commercials, I think this year we’ve gotten a few good ones. Below are some of our favourites this year (in no particular order): Petronas Raya 2014 :…

New Public Holiday

Being a multi-racial country, we are definitely blessed with so many public holidays.  I believe we are one of the countries in the world with most public holiday. Recently during one of my get-togethers, a friend highlighted that 15th July will be declared as Federal Territories public holiday. Unable to relate any festivity or event…

Salam Ramadhan!

To all our readers, we would like to wish everyone a very spiritual and productive Ramadhan. Let us take this opportunity to remember those who are less fortunate, be it Muslims or non-Muslims. There are many who don’t have enough to eat, or roofs over their heads, or living in oppression, or fighting for their survival. Let…

Master of the Kitchen

I hope it’s not too late to congratulate our Ipoh born Catherine Chin Wan Ping Coombes,  over her victory winning MasterChef UK with Nasi Lemak and Wantan soup dishes. Yay! Reading the articles about her winning, I can’t help but to notice of her intriguing statement where she said “My mother will be really proud I’m sure.…

Pink Cravings

CheeseBoy is super busy these days, he is even doing office work on Friday night 😦 So here I am looking blankly at my computer screen thinking about my current peculiar obsession. I am currently craving for PINK stuff which is really odd because, those who know me knows that my favourite colour is BLUE! This is…
