From the 1st day of Chinese New Year til today, I've been feeling tired. I have too many friends as my mum pointed out to me on the 2nd day of Chinese New Year. The moment someone stepped into the house, non-stop until the last person is all my friends.
I didn't expect so many to come as I didn't really send out any invitations. I just assumed that those who came last year would automatically come. Guess I underestimated the number of friends who would actually come. As flattering as it is to have a lot of friends but everyone in 1 day is a bit tiring for me. Next time I should be clever and schedule all my friends. =P
I remembered I even had to tell a friend of mine, Ivan to come a bit later as my house was just a bit too full for me to handle. There were people in the living room filled to the extend people had to sit on the floor, the dining table was full and my mum had to entertain some more guess in the kitchen! Pai seh, Pai seh...
I managed to pop out for 30 minutes to Feli's house and then rush back home again since people were calling me and telling me there were coming. *sweat sweat* Rush rush..
The moment someone leaves, just as I thought I can take a break, another group shows up at the door. Never assume you have too little friends or never assume that everyone else is busy at home. Some more I was the one who told my mum to not buy so much or cook so much cause I didn't think that many would come. Luckily, mum still insist on the whole open house thing.
Until today, I have only been to 4 houses. The moment I step out, I am only able to visit 1 house each time before rushing back home. That equals, not many ang pau for me. *sad sad*
To those whom I have yet to visit, I'm not sure if I can this year. I'm so sorry if I end up not visiting. Some more I don't drive so it is very limited for me. Everyone else I know have done their group visiting. =(
Some pictures taken on the 1st day of Chinese New Year. That is my sister's Godfather. I used to spend so much time at his house. Those were the days. Going back to that house seeing everything now, it is so different from when I was young. Now everything doesn't seem that big anymore. Hehe~

So mood equation with all the pain after work was...
Ultimate piss off mood + time at work + ang pau + goodies = Not bad mood~
Although butt was in a sort of pain, I still went out. Since Wade made it sound like it is a MUST to go out. Plan was to go out and meet up with Ryan and MarineGirl . I didn't have work last night thinking that would move the plan up forward by 2 hours but it was only moved up 30mins. Good thing mum was in a good mood to let me off.
Wade came to pick me up, but no one was in the car except him. Puzzled, I asked him where are all the other humans. Ryan couldn't make it due to home stuff and MarineGirl said she would meet us at Senso.
Wade found a parking space which I didn't even see. Apparently he was too close to the car behind him so I told him to let down his car a bit. So I went in front of his car to help out. The dude just let go his hand break and let the car roll down. Then in my head, I was thinking... "OOOooo, kueh lapis~!" Wade suddenly pulled his hand break and his tyres were sreeching to a stop. I can get heart attack, man!
I was telling Wade, earlier I was rolled over by a trolley. I don't intend to get rolled over again by a car. If that happens, I will be super squashed~~ So we got in and took a seat. I always have trouble ordering a drink. Wade will always settle for his Vodka Martini so he recommended the Caipirinha, a Brazilian drink. It is just a mixture of vodka, lime and lots of ice cubes.
Although it was only the two of us. We managed to have a few spur of laughters and giggles regarding our small little tiny crush on the hunk. Haha~ Imagine that, a guy and a girl fighting over the same guy. Hrmp~!! As usual Wade would finish his Vodka Martine and go for a Hoegaarden.
MarineGirl finally came. It was a pleasant surprise to see Jean with MarineGirl. I went to the entrance to get them. The hunk was there too. MarineGirl was saying, "I thought it was suppose to be in Caffe Cino." The hunk helping to open the door looked at me and said, "What?" Those blue eyes looking straight at me. I just smiled. Peng~ If the place was brightly litted, I think it would have been real obvious that my cheeks were going red!! I could feel my face going hot! Wade! I still remember those eyes!
It took MarineGirl quite some time to make a choice on a drink. The waitress came back 3 times. She finally made a choice on Margarita and Jean had a coke. MarineGirl also had a cheese cake from Cino which according to her tasted really nice. MarineGirl was wearing CROCS! She let me try it and I must say, it is quite comfy in there. =)
We had lots of laughs, not to mention the tickling session which any chance I had to hook up with the hunk went down the drain due to Wade. The best laugh we had was when Jean thought that Wade was really gay as I was telling her how Wade and I are actually after the same guy. Her expression? As MasterCard would say it. PRICELESS! Hahaha! MarineGirl played along too. It was uber fun. Hilarious~
MarineGirl and Jean had to leave early. So Wade and I stayed just awhile longer and then left. Sometimes I like going out just one on one but sometimes going out in a group is just uber fun. Especially if since we don't get to see each other much. The ingredients for a good-fun-meet-up is the company itself!
Not bad mood + those blue eyes + MarineGirl's crocs + Jean's expression + Wade's gayness = Priceless! =P
The day started out bad and then ended up real bad. When you think real bad is bad, it turns into super bad but then suddenly everything starts to get better and by the end of the day everything just turns out good~ Goody!!
On another note, it takes 24 hours to know the real pain from an impact of a fall. I woke up with a sore butt, sore back, sore neck, sore joints, sore legs. All that equals to a sore head!! So pain!~! Me need massage!!
Don't mind the language but I do mean it literally. It is totally forbidden to shout at me when I'm sleeping. It will send my mood straight to the drain early in the morning. Mum bugged me to go out with her to her office and then do some last minute shopping.
Early morning + bad mood + sitting hours doing nothing in the office = Piss off mood~
The traffic was horrible during lunch hour. Mum wanted to go to Saberkas and you know how hard it is to find parking during daytime in Saberkas. It took my mum like a many levels up just to get a parking spot. I counted and estimated how many cars were there in Saberkas alone. 50 cars per level. There must be at least 10-11 levels which means... Saberkas can easily fit 500 cars!!!
Piss off mood + traffic jam + no parking spot available = Super piss off mood~
Last minute shopping was to do grocery shopping. This year I didn't do any retail shopping for Chinese New Year. =P I'm sure my sister has something nice for me. WEe hehe~ So mum bought like a few cartons of drinks and some other groceries. So since mum's car is like so many floors up. We pushed the trolley up the escalator and then use the elevator.
Then mum left me with the trolley while she goes to get the car. *wait wait* Busy with phone. The ground was uneven. Then.. trolley roll one side and rolls me over. *piak* I was kueh lapis-ed! And because I always break my fall by falling on my butt and palms, me was in a lot of damn it pain.
A dude was watching the whole thing and he didn't even help me. Hrmp~!
You wait one day, when you fall and no one helps you! Another guy, all dressed up smartly with nice black shoes came to help me. I noticed the black shoes first because I was down on the floor trying to push myself up.
He helped to put the trolley back up and put everything back into the trolley. I couldn't find one side my sandals. Guess where I found it? Some 50m away from me. Amazing how far it flew. The moment my mum came, I quickly helped my mum put everything into the car and sat in the car. It was literally, my butt so damn pain! My palms were like super dirty. Yucks~ I didn't dare to even touch my phone for that period of time.
Super piss off mood + being squashed by trolley + pain in butt = Ultimate piss off mood~
Got back home, I thought I was gonna take a rest and only get to work by 6.30pm when suddenly, I got a call asking me if I can come earlier so I don't have to work at night. WEe! I was thinking, "Yay, I don't have to be so pressured about going out late right after work!" On the other hand, it was... "Pain~ I feel pain~ No rest~ Pain~~~"
Ate my lunch only at 3.30pm and then rushed over to work. Due to the Chinese New Year season, I was let off after 1 hour of work only. *big smile* I fell the second time on my butt from a chair!! Two kids were busy pushing my chair and turning round and round when suddenly, I splat flat on my butt on the marble floor. *Pain~@!!* I ended up chasing both these kids and tickled em'!! They are so mean! Cause me so much pain! *sniff sniff*
I got my first ang pau already which comes together with Bak Kua and Cadbury Chocolates! Weee~ The note so pretty some more~ I love my job~! Did I mentioned, I got a whole packet of carrots yesterday. I was telling my mum, "Tonight I become bugs bunny and munch all those carrots!" =P Last week, I got a whole packet of biscuits and spices from Hong Kong! Yummy stuff!
Ultimate piss off mood + time at work + ang pau + goodies = Not bad mood~ =)
Home~ Butt still pain and I hear myself saying..
"Butt is pain, pain is butt, is pain butt, butt pain is, pain butt is"
Trying to twist the 3 words around.
My mum heard me and she was like..
"Butt so pain still wanna go out?"

For the 6 months when I was back in West Malaysia. I was full of negativity. All I could think of was how everything was just wrong. How the place was wrong, how the people were wrong, how much I hated the place and just wanted to leave, how everything manage to take a nasty turn and make life a living hell. It came to a point that everytime I entered a church I end up crying or even the very thought of God made me cry.
But that 6 months taught me a very important lesson in life. Whenever in a situation where you feel most vulnerable, you find ways to put the blame on something else. No matter what it is. Just because you feel so insecure, you get so paranoid that something is going terribly wrong somewhere.
Everyone at that moment of my life told me to look at the brighter side of things. People said to not complain so much and instead of thinking of everything upsetting, think of anything that cheers you up.
You know how it works, someone tells you to do something like that when you're feeling down, the normal response in your brain is
"What do you know about how I feel?"
Little did I know that those words actually helped me. It was starting last month that I realized I couldn't stand listening to negativity. When someone starts saying something bad about another person, I somehow will start feeling really agitated.
When someone complains about how sucky life is or studies, I start seeing a whole different pattern from the complains. The person complaining focuses on all the negative points while I search for all the positive points of it. I guess if I dwell in the sorrow that my friend is going through, I will also fall into that sorrow.
Lately, I start to feel it more and I'll be honest, I actually feel pain when listening. I get very agitated and if possible I would tell the person to stop especially when the person is just insulting or saying bad things about someone even if I don't know the person.
I wish I can help people when they are upset like how I used to years ago but now it seems like I can't listen to someone complaining or talking bad about a person without feeling agitated. Now, I'm not even sure if it is a good or bad thing to be feeling like this..........

I was out with Ryan and Wade last night. First time in like many months since the last time I went out with them. It was totally a wicked night! Never had I laughed so much throughout the whole night.
Talk about checking out hot guys... without my eyes on! Argh! I'm still so feeling bummed about it! I totally forgot to put on my contact lenses since I just got back from work and rushed to get out since Ryan and Wade arrived at my house even before I got home from work.
So we arrived in Hilton and headed towards Senso Bar. Well, on a Friday night.. I must say it was rather full compared to a Thursday night. Caffe Cino had lots of folks sitting outside which made the place looked lively. Upon entering Senso Bar, I caught a glimpse of this rather cute face
boy guy. Mind you, he looked rather dashing in a suit. I was telling Wade how the guy seemed underage.
Moving on, Ryan had a Hot Chocolate. Wade had a Vodka Martini while I had Singapore Sling. Singapore Sling, a ladies drink. A mixture of lemon juice, cherry brandy and gin. Ryan said it tasted like perfume though none of us actually tasted perfume before. Didn't manage to take any picture of those though or even those yummy nacho chips served with mustard and olives. Ryan and I were like so totally into the mustard.
Then there was this really hot looking hunk. I mean since I didn't have my eyes on but I could see his physique and oh-wow face. He got us hooked from the very first moment we laid eyes on him. Many of the times he walked pass us, he turned and like looked at us which afterwards resulted in huge burst of laughters from us. Totally hilarious~
Wade ordered more nacho chips for us and we just munch munch munch away. We made a few request of songs but they didn't manage to get to ours before we left the place. Too bad! We even dedicated it to a special someone! =P
We came to a conclusion that Ryan can have the hunk and I'll have the dashing cute face guy but leaves Wade all alone without anyone. Awww~ Poor dude. We'll think of something Wade! Don't worry~ We're nice people!! We won't leave you alone in the dark. Right, Ryan??? =P
Ryan and Wade wanted me to check out if there is a TV in the washroom. First time in history, I went a washroom for the sake of seeing if there is a TV in it. Yap, there is TV in the washroom but it was not switch on. So much for checking out the loo.
We left the place feeling really happy~ Each of us left with a souvenir though I think Ryan has more souvenirs than Wade and I. Wade's Hoegaarden Grand Cru , a French beer was on the house! Maybe the dashing cute face guy does like us or the hunk likes Wade!!~ Hahaha~! *wink wink*
Totally a wicked night out! Now that's what I call fun! Cheers to more great night outs!

BYO = Buy Your Own (food and drinks)
Then it came to man picking flowers from gardens and giving it to the woman he loves as a symbol that he finds her as beautiful and wonderful like the flowers. When it was known to men that consuming chocolates releases a chemical called serotonin to the brain which is the thought to produce the feelings of pleasure, chocolates became the popular gift idea. Then there was..... rings, teddy bears, lingeries, etc...
And what might be the gifts from women? Let me think ya, em... normally it will be a tie, shirt, socks? or hair gel? or boxer shorts? Mainly what the guy needs but not necessarily what he wants. Men and gadgets. They love it. There is the handphones, mp4 players, PDAs, bluetooth ear piece, eletronic shaver, Playstation 3 ?... practically anything that requires batteries or electricity.
That would be the gift part, what about the plan of the day or night? Those who are on holiday or on leave on that day would most probably have lots fun. =P There's always the beach you can head to. Check-in to a hotel and spend all day with each other. Then there is the quiet dinner. With candles, wines and roses. Dim light settings, nice, slow music playing in the background to make the whole evening romantic.
The after dinner part is for your own to plan. Hehe~ Depending on how far are you in the relationship. =) So for those who has a partner to spend Valentine's Day with, you better make sure you have something planned out and for those who don't have anyone special, call out your friends and have fun. Don't spend time at home being lonely and thinking how sad life is on Valentine's Day.
Or you can do what I do most of the time on Valentine's Day... Wish your parents and friends Happy Valentine's Day, give out cookies and chocolates to anyone you know, and be happy!
So in advance, Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!! =)

When you're out with a friend who loves to flirt or thinks that flirting is an art to master, you can be sure that he or she will be at it at any given time. He was trying to feed me the olive with the toothpick. Peng~ It was a sweet gesture but when you know your friend too well, in your head you'll just think... "Being a flirt again~~" *sweat*
We didn't stay long. I think we sat only for about 30 - 45 minutes. We went to Scoops opposite and had some gelato! The strawberry yoghurt is yummy! Not there for even 20 minutes.. then we left and went driving around Kuching. We went to Links and he has yet to see the interior of it. It was a slow night, barely 10 people there only.
Drove around Kuching and ended up across river. My friend wanted to check out 'Kuching' from across river.
I suggested, "Lets go to the beach!"
He was like, "Its 11.30pm already, if we go and come back will most probably get you home only by 2am. Too late..."
I made him turn towards Bako instead. Now that is one straight road with lots of huge houses. He just simply turned into roads.. luckily my sense of direction across river is quite ok. If not, we'd just get lost in there during the wee hours. Scary~ *shivers*
'Sight-seeing' ended up 12.30am with me reaching home. Weee~ It was fun driving around whole of Kuching. Cham le.. hahha~ peng~ anyways, gotta go. Adios~
