It is true what people say. 

"You never know what you have, until you lose it. 
And once you lose it, you'll never get it back".

I'm glad that we are still friends. 
And that he still loves me, well, in a way.

You never know what you have, until you lose it. And once you lose it, you'll never get it back

After 7 years, I'm still getting bracelet from him. 
Most of the time, he would choose ones that disperse negativity, 
promotes good luck and improve communication and social life. 

I admit that these are the qualities that I need to get rid of / lacking of. 
I take full responsibility of my weaknesses. 

Wearing the bracelet he gave me, gives me bravery to face the new year
with a bolder attitude, and it gave me a feeling that I'll have a blessed 2014.

A song dedication for the special someone.

Bon Jovi - Thank You For Loving Me

It's hard for me to say the things
I want to say sometimes
There's no one here but you and me
And that broken old street light
Lock the doors
We'll leave the world outside
All I've got to give to you
Are these five words tonight


Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes
When I couldn't see
For parting my lips
When I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me

I never knew I had a dream
Until that dream was you
When I look into your eyes
The sky's a different blue
Cross my heart
I wear no disguise
If I tried, you'd make believe
That you believed my lies


Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes
When I couldn't see
For parting my lips
When I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me

You pick me up when I fall down
You ring the bell before they count me out
If I was drowning you would part the sea
And risk your own life to rescue me


Lock the doors
We'll leave the world outside
All I've got to give to you
Are these five words tonight


Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes
When I couldn't see
You parted my lips
When I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me

When I couldn't fly
Oh, you gave me wings
You parted my lips
When I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me

Have you ever been ignored for a long time by someone u considered a good friend?

Ignoring as in have not been bugging you as often as they used to, messaging you irrelevant stuff just their way of saying "HI", dating you out for a meal etc?

And this happened out of a sudden. Without warning or hint that something is wrong. How does it makes you feel?

I can answer that. It SUCKS.

Coz in all those time that they have ignored you, comes an ultimate question... "WHY? DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG?".

I've been in the exact same situation for numerous times last year. And with my attitude for always in need to keeping things straight, would seek for clarification.

In all the situation that I've been ignored, the answer is that they did it on purpose due to some "complicated situation" that they are facing. But I'm glad that we cleared things up and instantly became friends back and turned out to be closer than ever!

But I'm forced to deal with this situation again now. WHAT DID I DO WRONG?

I wish that people could just talk to me. Taking this step is just as good as breaking a friendship, forgetting all the bonding and trust we have built all these while as friends.

What does friendship mean if you can just delete them away from your life?

I figured that my blog needs a whole new look!
Revamping in progress!

(I'm actually in deep shit. Adapted a new template but the rest of the function went cuckoo. How to change title of my navigation bar? Why do I need a 'Business' and a 'Parent Category' for?!! Where is the rest of my widgets? What the *toot* is a CSS snippets?!! OMG I'm freaking out... Helppzzz!!! )

Facebook, as a social platform for everyone to share almost everything - from a photo of a roti canai made glamorous using Instagram, to uncommentable status such as "haha I'm so drunk" (wow I'm impressed... drunk still can use FB), to hundred photos of the same rainbow on a particular day, still, Facebook do has its own drawbacks.

In Facebook, we can practically say anything or everything we want! Without having to be responsible for any of it! Yay to freedom of speech!!!


One disadvantages that I can deeply relate to especially today...

Is that... there are things I couldn't say because this genius here added too many office associates!!!

... and I just couldn't find in my right mind to say this out loud... "I REALLY HATE MY JOB!"

So in this case, announcing my REAL FEELINGS for my job do have its consequences. Either I get sent to a boring motivational bootcamp, or I get a not-so-lovely memo.

Well, we can always put our status on PRIVATE. But then, it wouldn't be fun anymore isn't it? Afterall, things are posted for an ultimate reason - ATTENTION.

And I'm amazed by how much attention one could get in FB. How did some FB user's "GOODNIGHT!" status hit 30 likes from fellow FB friends?

Ahhh shooot! Goodnight!

2013 has been quite a year for me. 
Starting off pretty harsh taking into consideration of the sad trail of end 2012.

Nevertheless, it was the pain, the sadness, the harsh truth of life,
that put me up into the very best of 2013.

It was the most productive year of my life - yes it is! 

Early 2013.. I was looking for a distraction.
And I thought it was merely to distract me from my negative feelings,
and somehow one thing led to another and I am getting more excited
of knowing new things, and doing things I never thought I would do!


FAILED. Still intended to learn freestyle and thread water. 
Any patient coach that wouldn't vomit blood teaching me?


Proud to say that this is a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
It all started from overcoming my fear of water which was scary!
I then forced myself to take up license for my OWC,
and finally, to dive at the much-talked about diving paradise, Sipadan.
It was beautiful. Haven't get to blog about it yet.. time time time... 


Hell yeah I've conquered the mountain! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! 
It took months of preparation and training, and I've realized
that it's all bullshit when people tells me that I'm always sick and thus,
too weak to be climbing any mountain, needless to say Mount KK.
Now I'm a living proof that the mental strength overcomes all the physical weakness in you!


This is a little hard to judge. I am happy now. But I could be happier.
I'll never give up on this, and in 2014, I'll be heading for it with 
my bull's head running furious, hard and strong! 

5) 42 KG !!! 

I figure how could this end up in my resolution 2013 at the first place?
It is impossible for the petite me to lose 3kgs! But in a year? FML!
Fine, I'll get this done in 2014 - hopefully.
More carrot sticks, no fries.
More push ups, no bumming around.
More sleep, no zombie-ing.

Now that I've got some unfinished business to do, it shall be carried forward to 2014.
Leaving me ample of time to laze around for awhile before working my arse out again. Tee-hee!

Aside from 2013 resolution, there are also some turnaround of events
in terms of my career, friendship and social life.

During the good and bad times, were also times when I lost 
some friends, and realized who are the one who genuinely cares for me. 
Friends who always stood by me as my pillar of strength.
I thank you all for accepting me for who I am.
And could I just selfishly request that we have more of these years to come?

Second half of 2013 has hit me hard as I've lost a dear friend.
I've known Jebsen for 8 years, he was Vince best friend.
He was my foe-kind-of-friend. 
What best described us is that we're like cats and dogs.
We would fight whenever we meet.
Cancer took him away from us. 
And all I could wish for him now is that he rest in peace.
We misses you dearly my friend.

Photo taken when we were relatively young at age.. hehe!

Crawling towards end of 2013, I was getting a little anti-social.
Losing faith and trust in friends especially men, believing that each one has their
own agenda and hidden intention, I was afraid to give.
Spending time with them was like giving them opportunities to expose me,
to look into what's inside me, and to use it against me.
So I decided to just stay home and mingle with those I called close friends.

This has also affected my relationship with my family.
Was too sad and disappointed that I kept myself behind closed door. 

And then the end of 2013 proves to be a challenging year for my career
as well as there were much uncertainties waiting for me.
I seemed to be pushing the wrong buttons everytime I make a move.
It could be lacking my sense of judgement, or perhaps I'm getting impatient?

That said, I'm looking forward to a better year. To be a better person.
Shoosh the snake and comes the horseeyyy!!!

Working out on my bucket list and hope I'll conquer all it!

Ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no river wide enough for me! :)

Following to the dinner at Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf
we made another first-time visit to Coffee Mania 
which is just a stone throw away from Bangsar Village.

Coffee Mania brave entry to Bangsar which is now dominated by Coffea Coffee
is definitely an admirable move and I ought to try it out!

It was a very quick change of mind when I was left unconvincing 
upon entering the quiet outlet. 
There wasn't much patron compared to other busy neighboring outlets.
Does it mean that it's not good? 

Flipping though their extensive menu, 
I was greatly surprised that affogato is NOT in the list!



Being astounded by this, 
I asked the waiter if they have vanilla ice-cream at all.
Confirming that it is a yes, I ordered double shot of espresso 
and a single scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

The espresso tasted good but the vanilla ice-cream melted
before I could take a perfect scoop of it.

The dinner-mate ordered himself a Kopi Luwak, which is widely known as
the "cat shit coffee" - well, that's the disgusting way to put it.

In a more informative way, civet cats (luwak) loves coffee beans and they
picked only the finest coffee beans to eat, which is then excreted in 
a partially digested formand the farmers would collect
the feces from the ground for roasting

A cup of luwak coffee cost RM40.00 in Coffee Mania.
Looking at the processes involved, and the fact that it
is "specially made" by the cats, we deemed it is reasonable.

The dinner-mate tasted it and it was too light in body.
One unforgettable comment was "Kopitiam kopi-o taste better".

If childhood memories didn't fail you, you may have remembered being told of a tale 
starting with "Once upon a time, there were 3 little pigs... and a biigg... baadd.. wolf!"

Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf @ Bangsar Village

As the tale goes on, the pig managed to build a brickhouse and being forever safe from the hungry wolf.

The tale in this eatery somehow, ended quite sadly for the pigs.

Well, one will know how it ended when the dishes are named...

"The one that didn't get away"... 
"The wolf's favourite"...
"Piggies rolling in the mud"...

This little place in Bangsar Village draw alot of crowd recently
and it wouldn't harm wolfing down the piggies, ehhh??? 

Greeted by queuing patrons, we took our number and amazingly only had to wait 
for 15 minutes before being seated despite no reservation being made. 
Bur don't risk it. For important dinner, do call for a reservation.

For starter, we had Garlic Roast Pork which is undoubtedly well marinated
and topped with fried garlic, made us wanting for more. One turned down by the dish was,
the roast pork skin, which I would prefer really crispy!

Garlic Roast Pork - RM15

Caesar Salad served with pork bacon and fried poached egg.
What? Fried? Yumzzzz.... :)

The Wolf's Favourite
Now how could I resist my favourite carbonara which had just made better with pork bacons?
Seated on the perfect plate of carbonara is a poached egg.
Once I make a light cut, huff and puff comes the runny yolk! Voila!!!

We were indeed very satisfied wolves that night.

A quick verdict

Ambiance - 7/10 (seating were quite close and crowded)
Food - 6.5/10 (probably some ribs and burgers would bring this up a little)
Price - 6.5/10 (a little pricey for something that I wouldn't grade an astoundingly delicious one)

The best month of the year is always N.O.V.E.M.B.E.R.

It's my birthday month!

So what?
I get to celebrate!

There's plenty of birthday treats.... food for me.. for freeeeee!!! Yippiieeeee!!!

The G3 Kitchen & Bar is the very first stop of my birthday treats/
Brought by Vince, I was told that they serve pretty good breakfast.

So here goes...

A healthy person picked a healthy cup of juice consisting of orange + ginger.
An odd combination and but the heck, it tasted just fine and refreshing.

Healthy juice - RM12

Vince got himself a typical breakfast drink - cappuccino
I wouldn't say that it's great, and it tasted just like an average cappuccino.
Probably they should have add a little more hint of coffee in there.

Cappuccino - RM9

For starters, we ordered grilled scallops with orange and carrot salad.
For a RM26 starter, we were served two huge scallops and it were fresh and juicy.
Love the unique combination of salad with a slight taste of fruit dressing.

The scrambled eggs with salmon however, was a disappointment.
The eggs tasted bland. And the existence of salmon was almost unnoticeable on that dish.
The only consolation for me is the hash brown, which wouldn't have gone wrong.

Scrambled eggs with salmon - forgotten the price.

When Vince ordered the Spiced Lamb Burger with Tazaki, Feta and Fries
I was thinking "why larhhhh?".
I wasn't impressed by my first try of lamb burger at Antipodean, and it
somehow left me uninterested to try it again.
I was lucky as G3 shed a whole new light about lamb burger.
The patty was thick and not too dry. Love the little spiciness in it too!

This place is probably another eatery that I may want to try again.
There are also a whole list of wine selection and amazing wine display for one to choose!

A quick verdict for G3

Ambiance - 8/10 (Service was good and it's a comfy place)
Food - 6/10 (Scrambled screw it up, sorry)
Price - 6/10 (A little to the high side, especially for the starter)
