Air Asia

I love this airline.. I think Tony Fernandes is a genius.. they are one airline, who are living up to their tag line, now everyone can fly..

So now that I spend three quarter of my life in the office, whenever I'm really exhausted, my immediate reaction is to take a break by visiting their website and checking out on some holiday plans.. its rather lame I know.. although I can't afford (not in terms of money, but no leaves etc) to go on a real holiday, but checking out destinations, and knowing the fact that I could actually visit these places if I have the TIME makes me happy... :)

they have promotions like every other day.. and checking out dates and prices and finding one that really fits into all your plans n something really really cheap is like hitting a jackpot! but of cos, when I send it over to my friends or bf, and someone doesn't like the idea, I pull a face.. Yet, I check their website like every other day and I'm like their unofficial ambassador now... everyone in my family who wants to fly, asking me to check price la, book for them la...

so anyway, I just like finally booked one! hooray! we are going to Yogyakarta! weird place I know... but look at these pics... aren't they so beautiful? convincing myself

Sometimes, don't we all feel this way??

Dedicated to Lilo and Nemo ...



I'm tired.

Really really fucking tired.

And mentally exhausted.

I've been working so hard, I don't know why. Waking up early and staying back late at work is torturing me. I am not forced to and I do have an option. Yet, I do it. Again, I don't know why.

I just hope all this pays back one day.

Small world!

I realised again it's a small world (and freakishly so!) last weekend.

I went to a relative's wedding reception with my cousins and aunties. Getting there was a hassle by itself because of the traffic jam caused by the police road blocks which were the result of rival gang fights that left 4 shot dead. Seriously, what is happening to KL?? First my uncle gets held at gunpoint in a case of mistaken identity, now this!

Anyway, we get to the reception, managing not to be too late, get our places and start eating. Than, as I'm speaking to my cousin - both of us checking out this obviously vain, good looking kid (sadly no good looking men, so I had to settle for second best), I spot this guy in the crowd. Hey, I know him! We played cho tai tee at Old Town Coffee on New Year's Eve!

So I go up to him...

Me: Hey Ram! (who by the way, through the result of his parent's mix marriage, looks like a Cambodian)

Ram: Oh Hey! Oh My God! (jaw dropping to the floor) What are you doing here??

Me: Erm, are we related?? You're here as a friend or relative?

Ram: I'm related to the bridegroom (picking up his jaw from the floor, after the shock of seeing me)

Me: (LOL!) So am I!

(Than we attempt to explain to each other how we're related, I'm not going there again - too complicated!)

And finally the conclusion was....

Ram: So cool! We're cousins!

Weird names...

My colleagues think I am weird. But I think my boyfriend is weird. He gets weird ideas at weird times. Now that's an understatement. Anyway, yesterday he was watching Alvin & The Chipmunks, when he suddenly had the great idea to have 3 sons in future! (Absolute ridiculousness, I know)

After arguing back and forth of him having 3 SONS =nightmares with whoever the unlucky wife is, and after convincing me how cool it would be to have 3 sons etc, although, i'm so not convinced he decided to come up with names for his 3 sons!

And of all the names on earth, he proudly announces that he wants to name them,

John - a plain, male dog
Johny - if i hate the dog
Johnathan - if the dog is really cute

Seriously.... Leave the uncreative-ness aside, but I would even think twice to name my dogs that..

So after putting in more thoughts, and wanting the names to be more meaningful and named after his idol, he chooses another set of three.. And this time, it was

David Billa - Why???
Baasha Bai - Nooooooooo!!!
Aaru Padaiyappan - Suicide, Die!!

Speechless already.. but the next set of names were beyond all that...

Vetrivel - WTF?
Saktivel - WTF??
Veeravel - WTF???

So is he really weird? I'm sure no further explanations needed.

V-Day - hate it or love it?

Hate it :
It's the one day in the whole year that just makes it glaringly obvious who's single and who's not. Last V-Day, Hitz.fm came up with their own version of a V-Day special and christened Feb 14 as Singles' Awareness Day (S.A.D). How ironic is that?

Years ago when I was at school (damn, it has really been years ago!), V-Day used to be a very very big deal. My school used to have all kinds of gift and flower delivery services during V-Day and I remember feeling little twinges of jealousy when all the popular girls used to get bouquets. Lucky I had good friends back than (read S.A.D) and we'd give each other gifts. In hindsight, I realise now it never really was about the giver but about the gift.

Another thing that pisses me off about V-Day is how the people that stand to benefit from it financially, manipulate the masses. Suddenly everything costs 3 times as much. One year, one of my good friends in university managed to get a real bargain price for a dozen roses for his girlfriend. Considering it was the day before V-Day, and he paid less than RM30 for those gorgeous blood red roses was a miracle! Anyway, he brought his roses to the florist to ask if they could make a nice bouquet, you know, with the nice wrappers and stuff. And they told him it'll cost him RM120. WTF?! RM120 for wrapping paper?? I'm so glad my friend had enough sense to walk out of the shop.

But I do love V-Day too ...

It's still significant to me but not in the way it was before. There's no more dreadful anticipation about "he likes me, he likes me not" because 7 years ago, I found out that he really does like me when I got my first meaningful V-Day gift. A gift that has lasted those 7 years although it's looking quite aged now.

And these days, the little twinges of jealousy are not about other girls getting bouquets. It's about other girls being able to go for V-Day dinners with their other halfs and spend time with them - in person! Yes, for a person who has the guy and the ring, I lack one thing - a date. But I know what would make me feel better and not S.A.D (ehemmm *hint* HINT*!!), a nice bouquet of flowers ;)


Cool site..

I found this cool site that I wanted to share as part of my charity effort.. The site is called thehungersite. All it requires us to do is to click on it daily and we would be doing our bit to do charity for free.. this is how it looks like, all we would have to do is click on the link and we could be part of feeding a kid out there..

Here's how it works.. "The staple food funded by clicks at The Hunger Site is paid for by site sponsors and distributed to those in need by Mercy Corps and Feeding America (formerly America's Second Harvest) . 100% of sponsor advertising fees goes to our charitable partners. Funds are split between these organizations and go to the aid of hungry people in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America. "

And the site does not only serve hunger, there are more options to choose, such as BreastCancer, ChildHealth, Literacy, RainForest & AnimalRescue.

I think we should save this site as our homepage, so that every morning we would remember to click to donate.. what better way to start our day than seeing a message like this on our screen..

There are lot of options to help us donate better like signing up to receive daily reminders to donate, and you can also help more by shopping in the hunger site store.

So peeps, let's make use of this. After all, it only cost a few clicks or a few seconds..

This week...

It’s been a hell of a week. I don’t think I have ever been this busy. I had no time for myself this week and it was all about work, work and work. I guess this is what promotion with no frills means. Sucks man!

To summarize how busy I have been this week:
  • I haven’t had time to write a single blog entry..
  • I had no time to chat with any of my friends... though they were all blinking in green in my gtalk... I hate not talking to them!
  • My table has huge pile of papers and everything falls every time I turn.. I hate it.. I am usually very neat and I keep my table clean…
  • I haven’t unpack clothes to wash from my last weekend trip to Tapah..
  • I haven’t had time to buy chicken that I usually cook for dinner this whole week..
  • The only words that I spoke to my mom this week is, during my car engine warm up time in the morning..
  • It’s the 4th day of my fuckin period and I haven’t had time to drop by guardian to buy some pad (since the 1st day ok!) I am amazed how I survived…
So yeah, it’s been hell of a week... Sorry if I annoyed anyone of you unintentionally this week... maybe this is what “In this tough current global environment...” sentences I write in my research papers means..
