Five For Fighting - Superman

Five For Fighting - 100 Years

Five For Fighting - This Dance (mp3)

I couldn't find Five For Fighting original version of This Dance
in Youtube, this is the closest I could find. Not that bad,
but of coz not as good as the original sung by Five For Fighting.

Looking underneath my feet is the weighing scale,

Which the needle pointed at the figure that tells me my weight,

My jaw dropped open looking in disbelief,

When I look clearly knowing it's a mistake,

"Ahaa! Weighing scale rosak!" I said,

Come down, go up again, take deep breath, look down,


"Nevermind.. Maybe I just had my dinner, will try some other day"


Tried getting up the weighing scale again this morning,

Can't help but feeling sorry,

That everytime I have to fulfill my cravings,

With friends that never tried to stop me from being silly,

Whatsmore realizing that none had warn me that supper is fattening,

Should tell me there are some food that although is yummy,

But worth avoiding,

And me resisting,

Although I know but I couldn't help but eating,

Still, they should at least give me a warning,

Some of them even bought chocolates ice cream and snacks for my pampering,

Bad ass friends they are, as what I'm calling,

Now I'm scared to death everytime I'm weighing,

Hoping to the left the needle goes pointing,

To the gym is where I'm going,

As there are some weights need losing,

Now I am self-declaring myself a FATTY !!!

fat quote

You people sending me
ice cream

How can I let it sit there in my room
just staring at me???


Chocolates from hippo - I haven't finish it yet.

Ice cream from Barry - just finished it.
And now struggling with Gelare ice cream from hippo.

Snacks and chocolates from bro, Moon, Vince.... omg omg omg!!!

Marshmallow from Michelle, yummy white coffee from Kai Lee and the rest is fat fat fat!

Yummy, sweet, fattening..

And we have heard million times
that supper is fattening..

To maintain / lose weight, strictly no food after 8pm.

But still???

Was hungry late at night and Barry brought me for supper.
Hooii... fast food loaded with cheese.. FAT!!!

New Year's eve dinner with Vince & Rachel - late night shouldn't have ice-cream ady.. :'(

Our new year's eve dinner. My hotdog with lots of fries. Fattening? U say lah..

Rocket leaf with smoked salmon salad and almond flakes for supper..
... this is healthy but what comes next?

Cheese melting pizza. Cool for supper???? So noootttt!!!

Very late dinner at Bubba Gump, The Curve with Barry

Seafood - where everything is deep fried.

Prawns... yuhmiee...

Straight to my favourite waffle Gelare at e@curve after Bubba Gump.
Stuffing my stomach to the max.

Stomach was practically bloated when this photo was taken.
But can still fit a waffle and a good cup of cappuccino?

Recent lavish dinner at V Garden Restaurant where dinner starts at 8.45pm,
and ends at 10.30pm. Lots of food, but only this is yummylicious!

Got a sudden craving for satay when I wake up from an afternoon nap
where I dreamt about having buffet with yummylicious satay!
Roam around the town with Vince and finally found
my satay at the fourth stop.
10 sticks of chicken satay, 5 sticks of satay babi,
fried lala with egg and 3 pieces of grilled chicken.

Vince as usual over-ordered.
Asam ikan pari and sotong is nice, and I wallop it all !!!

See what's keeping my food hunting going?

How could one resist such good food the world has to offer?

No wonder I'm FAT.

No more snacks and supper for me!

You guys better stop me whenever my food craving is back !!!

Yay! The photos are finally up!

Thank you hippo for the Mickey Mouse balloons on my birthday!

The balloons that comes in different colors and images is a truly wonderful gift!

It did not go to waste coz before it pancit,
I took plenty of photos of it!

The idea to make the balloons photos more interesting,
is to have me in it!
Kekeke... and of coz, it is with me
wearing my Mickey & Minnie Mouse t-shirt collection.

And thanks Vince for being my unpaid photographer.

Holding his Nikon DSLR looking like a pro,
taken 300++ photos of me!!!
And with him editing the photos like a pro, 
most of the photos turn out looking super cool!

Now i have lotsa photos of the balloons for remembrance.


The black Minnie Mouse shirt.
The cartoon was supposed to be in gold color,
well it still is,
but then it got faded due to mum's mishandling while doing the laundry.

In the lovey dovey mood after attending Kevin & Sidney's wedding yesterday.

Cute couple. Really nice people. Wishing them a blissful wedded life. :)

Since I'm in the mood, would like to share a song.
This song is from my "favourite wedding song" list which I've compiled years ago.. (I very han ka one)
A song that I would love to play on my wedding someday.. (if I ever get married, oh choi choi!)

Everytime I listen to this song, the lyrics made my heart melts thinking how great it would feel to have finally found that special someone you could spend the rest of your life with... especially after a long and winding journey in life.

Enjoy the song!

(the MTV is kinda boring though.. but I chose this instead of the lyrics MTV so that we can admire his afro hair.. since that's his trademark during Americon Idol)

Guy Sebastian - Angels Brought Me Here

Guy Sebastian - Angels Brought Me Here Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It's been a long and winding journey, but i'm finally here tonight
Picking up the pieces, and walking back into the light
Into the sunset of your glory, where my heart and future lies
There's nothing like that feeling, when i look into your eyes...

My dreams came true, when i found you
I found you, my miracle...

If you could see, what i see, that you're the answer to my prayers
And if you could feel, the tenderness i feel
You would know, it would be clear, that angels brought me here...

[Verse 2]
Standing here before you, feels like i've been born again
Every breath is your love, every heartbeat speaks your name...

[Bridge 2]
My dreams came true, right here in front of you
My miracle...

If you could see, what i see, you're the answer to my prayers
And if you could feel, the tenderness i feel
You would know, it would be clear, that angels brought me here...

[Bridge 3]
Brought me here to be with you,
I'll be forever grateful (oh forever Faithful)
My dreams came true
When I found you
My miracle...

If you could see, what i see, you're the answer to my prayers
And if you could feel, the tenderness i feel
You would know, it would be clear, that angels brought me here...
Yes they brought me here...
If you could feel, the tenderness i feel...
You would know, it would be clear, that angels brought me here...

This is the 3rd blog for the past 24 hours!!!
I'm in a blogging spreeee!!!

If you're wondering, no, I'm not overdosed with coffee.

But it has been days that an important piece of technology
called the PC is absent in my home.

And now that I've got my office laptop at home,
I have the luxury of fully utilizing it for my own pleasure and leisure.

And so.. blogging it is!


Few months back I purchased Groupon vouchers for
dinner at Coffee Chemistry, First Subang Mall.

Groupon Deal:-

"[Up to 53% Off] 2-Course Western Meal: Grilled Salmon Steak,
Classic Roasted Lamb Shoulder, OR More + Dessert at Coffee Chemistry Signature, First Subang Mall for 1 (RM22) / 2 (RM40) / 4 (RM76) People."

Coffee Chemistry Signature at First Subang Mall

The purchase is with intention to create an
opportunity to have a nice dinner with my closest friends.

But I was way busy with coping with life till I forgotten about it.
Finally set the dinner on the very last day of redemption period.

Highest gratitude to friends who manage to leave work early and
squeeze some time out of their busy schedule just for me.

Coffee Chemistry cappuccino
Barry ordered a cappuccino which was okay, he said.
Nothing spectacular to my dismay.

Coffee Chemistry rose cappuccino
My eyes was affixed on the coffee section when I saw this.
Rose cappuccino?!!
I gotta try this!!!

Was eager to try but the excitement quickly turned into
disappointment coz it tasted like bandung.
Rose syrup flavor has covered any little possibly imagined
coffee taste in that cup of cappuccino.

Coffee Chemistry chocolate ice blended
Vince with his usual love for chocolate, ordered
ice-blended chocolate with ice cream.

He's not that picky, and he finished the drink.
Good, I guess?

Coffee Chemistry grilled salmon steak
This is my 180g grilled salmon steak served with mashed potato and vegetables.

My salmon was well prepared, but the lemon sauce that comes with
it tasted like an odd pairing.

With the salmon already fresh and nicely grilled, perhaps they need
a more subtle sauce to let the salmon "shine" instead of Mr. Lemon here
taking the credit all by itself with its tingling lemony flavor?

Coffee Chemistry classic roasted lamb shoulder
Vince's 130g classic roasted lamb shoulder served with mashed potato and vegetables.

The lamb is soft and the thick gravy is delicious!
No complaint on this... yum yummm...

Coffee Chemistry seafood pasta
Barry's seafood pasta consist of mussels, prawns, squids and fish.

Aside from the fresh seafood and creamy sauce,
one thing that I'd like to highlight here is that the heavy
usage of capsicum makes it the dominant taste in this pasta.
Lesser or maybe no capsicum at all would be better.

Coffee Chemistry fish & chips
Alicia's Coffee Chemistry Fish & Chips with side salad.

I did not try the fish fillet as I'm trying to avoid fried food for my sorethroat.
Alicia says it's nice. So I'll take her word for it.
Side salad on the other hand was entirely mine.
Finished it, nice light dressing.

Coffee Chemistry affogato
Our Affogato (Espresso topped with vanilla ice-cream)

Concentrated coffee with ice cream - superyummylicious!
I love the dessert and finished it, and with the rose cappuccino I had earlier,
those two kept me awake till 2am that very night!

brownies and ice cream
Coffee Chemistry brownies and ice cream
Brownies and ice-cream

Ain't that good.
Brownies ought to be soft and chocolaty.
Best when it's warm. (personal preference)
These brownies are kinda hard, and I didn't go yuhhmm nor licking my spoon after!

Then... It's photo taking time!!!!

Overall, this is a pretty good deal from Groupon.
The serving is just nice.
None of us were overloaded from the dinner.

yummylicious! ;)

 Oh no.. it's almost 3am!!!
I've got a facial appointment tomorrow, plus cake collection,
plus a wedding dinner and then rush to dad's 71st birthday dinner!!!

Plenty of things to do, so little time to get it done!!!
