[ mood | calm ]

Just wanted make an official announcement for the website in here. Come and check it out and I'd appreciate your feedback!!

Been trying to advertise myself quite a lot these days and more to come - so apologize to people who've seen this way too often. I also got a few tips from people that already exist in the business. They said I need to be active in the wedding forums! So I did and gosh can you believe most people have organized their 2011 wedding?

As for myself, I was planning to tie the knot a year from now but according to the 'good dates calender' I should get married in June! which is only about 9 months away. Fyi I haven't organized a single thing except I do know I'll be fine in bomboniere field ;)

So guys please help me spread the words! If you know anyone is looking for bomboniere, let me know!!

Persepolis - 8.5/10
Highly recommended for you Miss D (if you haven't seen it). Very witty, smart, original, and sad at once. Very engaging black and white cartoon. I called my parents once I finished watching it - I'm sure I'm not the only who could somehow feel related with the character.

Harold and Kumar escape from Guantanamo bay - 3/10.
OKay maybe it's not a fair judgment since I've only watched the first 10 mins plus it's not normally the type of movie that I'd keen to watch. But I liked the first one for some reasons hence I had a fairly high expectations for the sequel (expectation kills).

I have Sweeney Todd and Savages waiting for me tonite, can't wait ;)

Sharing is Caring. Or that's what they said.. [02 Jul 2008|07:33pm]
[ mood | thirsty ]

Work has been busy and busy. I guess it's good in a way but on the other hand I kinda missed my good old days..I even had a dream last night that I took back my old job, how sad is that.

And oh in being random, I know I might not be the best position to say this, but I wonder how often could people change their mind?
I'm aware that I could be indecisive sometimes, but most of the things that I've put so much considerations are actually the small stuff. (Do I have to wash my hair this morning or later at night, which shoes I have to wear, should I get the chop chili or the normal chili, etc etc). You know just stuff that make you raise both of your eyebrows or just simply annoyed.

But I guess I just want to make a statement, that I do know what I want in the bigger picture. Sure I throw a random poll now and then but I know at the end of the day, I'm still the one who has the last say and I do try to work out the best I can to reach that 'say'.

Oh well, that's it..I thought that I just wanna give a lil update that I still exist in this beautiful LJ world. And a lil thank you note for all of you that've already been there since day one to see my ups and downs..(it's been 5 years now can you believe it?!). You betta..coz there would be so much more to come ;)

The first and the cliche.. [11 Feb 2008|10:40am]
[ mood | excited ]

1. Well yg ini rada cliche sih, but i really ate too much this sincia! mana yg kemaren sincia ala indo nya digabung ama anak nya temen g bday lagi..gila dah..bener2 food kingdom!! sigh..kapan g diet nya oh ibu bapaaakk!!

2. Travel! hehe i started to plan my next trip for this year. It'll be only a small trip though. The original plan was Korea, Japan, Singapore/ KL, and Indo. But looking at my saving I think I'll pass Japan this time. But it's still a 'woohoo I can't wait' trip, I've never been to Korea!! But since that trip is still 6 months away, at the mean time I'll focus to plan my first camping trip to Jervis Bay for the Easter holiday =)

3. My friend has just asked me to be her Godparent! whoah that would be my first time to be anyone's godparent. Whoah I feel so mature now hehe

Golden gay time [02 Feb 2008|01:08am]
[ mood | content ]

I've just realized now I don't have many gay friends as I used to anymore. Some of them left the country. Some of them are 'busy' and the rest are just M.I.A.

So it was quite a good surprise when BC called me today for a catch up drinks at his place. He's just got back from 5 weeks holiday and got so many juicy stories to share. FYI juicy is literally juicy in gay world. Things even got juicier when his flatmate joined us, damn I can't remember when was the last time I hung out with them. Good time. I thought I'd only stay for a drink, but as always, they've always managed to make my stay longer than the plan.

Oh I miss you guys, sorry I couldn't join the after drink party. A woman who suffered from period cramp shouldn't drink too much whiskey. That's just the rule. Sucks I know.

Wew. I still am a gay magnet. I thought I've lost it.

Glorious food over the weekend.. [21 Jan 2008|01:02pm]
[ mood | full ]

Indian
Took the Last Train to Bombay for my friend's birthday dinner. What a catchy name hey? Beautiful food and wonderful service (Note: I don't normally give a generous comment based on the past bad experiences with Indian). But yes, I definitely will come back for this one.

American
What could be more American than burger and fries? (yeh no chips for them). Had a lovely lunch with ce_no1 at Bite Me, followed by a quick stroll to Paddo's market. Unfortunately the weather was not too friendly, but next time we should meet up longer yah Hil! (and sisqa, lain kali ikutan ya! how's yesterday's shopping btw?)

Spanish
The Barrio. Cool funky resto with delicious food!! We booked the hallway for the dinner, which connected us straight to the bar. Very unique decor, very...different. Hehe or maybe different not the quite right word to use. mm..erotic? =p

Oh the resto gave us the fresh strawberry cake and a complimentary salt and pepper squid dish for ruining our gelato birthday cake. Buy hey it's all good, the gelato's still..edible. By edible I mean 20 people still tried to slurp the half melting gelato straight from the box..

Thai
It is hard to find a good Thai resto without queuing these days, especially at dinner time. Let alone queuing in Spice I am for 9 people. But patience is virtue my friend..

Where's the Indo food? Hm..I got 3 rissoles for the snacks so there you go =p
Ergh..I think I'm still full until now..

AS IF!!!

The perfect Sunday errands.. [06 Jan 2008|11:40pm]
[ mood | sleepy ]

I might not get a chance to do this every Sunday, but today I've been privileged to tick everything on my list. So..here we go:

1. Get up late. Sunday, the only day I could let myself to wake up late..
2. Stayed on bed doing nothing until my tummy made funny sounds.
3. Laundry. (Gah..!)
4. Visiting my fav bookstore to pick a random book - while waiting for my laundry. Oh have I told you they've changed the name of the bookstore and renovated the insides too? well they took away my fav couch but they made a new seat by the window so I can't complaint. It's a purple window too!! How wonderful. There I spent 2 hours reading Too many men by Lily Brett. Quite an interesting book, but I believe the book itself has only little to do with the title.
5. Church (yes, church. this is the perfect sunday remember?)
6. People watching at CQ. Oh and I also met this singer again. This is my second time I heard her singing, and I'm still amazed! It's her voice. It's the opera house background. It's the tourists. It's the birds. It's the Sunday! It's just perfectly amazing..
7. 2 scoops of ice-creams. Yep, can't miss them out.

Tomorrow will be my first day going back to work again..ugh..
Good night.

Fuzzy street party aftermath [06 Jan 2008|12:02pm]
[ mood | geeky ]

Well it was fun fun fun - minus the good food and the good weather. There's no much variety of the food and the rain was so friggin annoying!!! But there's definitely a hell of variety of the music, from punk to jazz. The swing dance lesson in Hyde Park was fun! The DJ in Martin Place was mad! Missed the chance to see Brian Wilson in Domain, but anyway maybe he's too old to sing on such bad weather (not mean, but that's just very possible..)

Psst: After the swing class, I feel like I want to take a proper ballroom dancing class!
Any takers?

Sugar hit! [05 Jan 2008|01:18pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

I spent the last day of my holiday just reading in the park yesterday. Damn it felt so good. Well technically I still have today and tomorrow off. But you can't count the usual weekend as part of the holiday rite?

Today is the first day of Sydney Festival. Wee I'm excited!! I love festival. Food, music, grass, fun fun fun. Hopefully it won't rain though..

Kiss kiss.
Bang Bang.

Someone is on drugs.
Nutella is a drug. Wee!

The eternity of the bitter sweet.. [03 Jan 2008|12:27am]
[ mood | awake ]

I refused to pay $17 just to watch Enchanted!! But my friend really wanted to watch it and I got no plans today. So I agreed to watch it as long I could sneak in for a second movie, which in this occasion was the sequel of National Treasure. Well not that I was interested to see it either, I don't even know what's the full title of the movie, but still at least I didn't spend $17 just to watch a fairytale in the cinema (great way to start the new year hey? =p)

Well it is as cheesy as I expected. The witch. The prince. The princess. The kiss. The happy ending. But oh well..as I said, it has been expected before so I can't really complaint about it.

But then it triggered this convo again. The big question of having a happy ending in the real life. My friend's suggestion for my 2008 NY resolution: to start believing in happy ending.
In my defense: 1. I don't do NY resolution. 2. Even in the movies, sometimes the princess has to save her own ass, and maybe someone else's ass too. 3. Hello, this is 2008? get real.

But well you know what, maybe there is a happy ending. It's just not in the same form that we expected it to be. As time goes by, the happy ending changes. And I guess that's the fun part, to be involved in deciding our own happy ending.

Damn it. Sometimes I just hate this responsibility to be a grown up. To realize life is not a fairytale. The tolerance you have to give to other people just to be exist in this world. The secrets you have to keep. The bill that you have to pay. The this the that, it sometimes is just too much. But then you talked to someone whom you thought will never encounter any issues in their life, then you realized you're not alone. Everyone has their own issues. Everyone, including this person who's just bought a $50,000 bag (yes they do exist apparently). Everything changes. Everyone changes. Whether they want it or not. Whether they like or not. There are too many things in this life that you don't have control over. But again...I guess that's just another fun part..

So..this time, I do want to believe in the happy ending. And you know what they said, when you believe, it'll happen. (really?) Okay..one step at a time..

I'm not gonna give up rambling, that's for sure, so warning: as much as I want to share my happiness in this beautiful life, this LJ will still contain more of my random venting moments. Yeh you know what they said again, old habits are hard to break. (but I didn't say it's impossible! ahh...optimism, wee!)

I'm staring at the ceiling.
(Kok banyak used sticky tapes ya..)

I think I'm this close to blow up.
But it's okay, I can handle it.

The this is not that this.

Wake me up in 2 hours. I shall welcome my fave dark choco ice creams from Lindts..

My December.. [13 Dec 2007|09:33am]
[ mood | working ]

Dec must be the shortest month in the year! (well technically Feb is, but this is my lj yo!)

I don't have a clue where the first 13 days of Dec went!! I even haven't started my xmas shopping..(talking about the art of procrastination hey?)

Also I have nominated the 22nd of Dec to be my busiest day in this year.
I have lunch engagement party, xmas/ farewell dinner party and a birthday night out. I wonder if I could use only one dress for all the occasions..

Or is it just a lame excuse to grant myself another dress?
(hey I got 3 engagements and 1 wedding and 2 birthdays and 3 xmas parties in 3 weeks time!!). argh. what to wear. what to wear..
Hhhhmmmmm....

btw capeq dah..
dah capeq2 dandan eh ujaan..ga bawa payung pulaq..busuq dahh!

For the greatest true love I've ever known.. [10 Dec 2007|09:26pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

It's been a week since my grandma passed away..my grandpa is still crying ever since..
They have been married for more than 60 years.
They are my marriage idol.
They are few who I've witnessed still holding hands after so many years..

I..
lost for words.

God please bless them..

Things that I'm good at [03 Dec 2007|11:55pm]
[ mood | loved ]

- My boss fixed my mobile! He's a CHAMPION. He is I tell ya. I gave him a big hug and a santa clause hat :)
- My cousin will try to fix my laptop in indo. I've booked the dinner for us at Kingsleys, but at the end he took all the bill hehe. He's the best cousin I tell ya. I don't have an elder bro but I always wanted to have one. But really he's just the best bro I could ever ask for. He always there for me when I need him (including 2 am call when I was still in high school and tried to sneak out on saturday nite hehe). Gonna miss him when he's going back to indo on wed..
- My friend will try to fix my towel holder hehe..have no idea how I did it, but I've managed to make a big hole on my bathroom wall. My agency wouldn't be happy to see it. and I don't think I'm gonna be happy to see the bill too. So finger cross my friend could perform his magic show tomorrow.

So yes that's the thing I'm good at. BREAKING STUFF. And making friends with people who are good at fixing it :)

Weekend update [02 Dec 2007|02:48pm]
[ mood | thirsty ]

My mobile seemed to have a sixth sense that I'm gonna replacing it soon. Its screen just suddenly went blank. Not sure what happened there, I still can receive calls but the screen is just..dead. Hence I can't retrieve all of my contact numbers!! WTH. well I did try to sync it to the computer. But now that I'm using Vista, the program has became incompatible (aaagrhh stoopid vista!). Lucky my friend lent his spare phone so I can still communicate with the world..

Watched Blades of Glory. I swear I didn't pick this. Well I laughed a lot, mostly because half times of the movie I can't stop thinking 'why did I need to watch this again?'
After all it's a good silly laugh. That's the joy when you had no expectation whatsoever.

The next day was better, we watched the premiere of Hunting and Gathering (Ensemble, c'est tout). I mean it's better from yesterday. I didn't say it's good. Well it's not a bad movie either, but I've seen Taotou's better movies. That's the agony when you had an expectation. 6.5/10.

oh the 2007 Annual Tour Ministry Of Sound last night..was...M.A.D
-TRENTEMOLLER (LIVE IN CONCERT) WAS O.M.G-
Imagine the feeling of you having your second day of period and dancing all night long (10pm - 6 am) with thousand of people in a warehouse. If you can't, ask me...I know exactly how it feels.

Deal or no deal. [29 Nov 2007|08:29pm]
[ mood | nerdy ]

I'm getting a new mobile phone! yay and not yay!
Yay because it's love at the first sight with the nokia 6500. Not yay because I am currently still on another plan for another 6 months hence I could not keep my current mob number (plus I also need to pay 2 plans per month..more bill = no good).

My current mob number and my current work phone number are so similar so it's so easily remembered. Oh well, it's not like I'm gonna work there forever, besides people changed their mob numbers all the time, right?

So a girl gotta do what a girl gotta do.
I am not gonna get sentimental just over a mob number!!

Or maybe I am..a bit, I used to keep my first Indo's mob number for more than 10 years, even though most of the times I'm not even in Indo - my mom used to recharge it every month hehe..
And I have only changed my OZ mob numbers twice for the past 8 years and that's because I lost my mobile once and the other one was when I went back for good to Indo..

Btw the sales executive is pretty funny, she said if I got bored with my current job she'd like to employ me...LOL

Anyone needs a new mob plan? Let me know, I could hook you up with her and maybe she could give you a good deal too :)

Shit and faith. [24 Nov 2007|01:52pm]
[ mood | numb ]

Things change. We all know it. Moments that we did something stupid and we wished we could turn back the time. Or anyway, it doesn't have to be us who did the shit. It's just that like it or not, shit happens a lot of times, just like that. And shit, it changed a lot of things.

Maybe it's the faith that we're lacking of. Maybe we should just close our eyes and jump off the building and take a leap of faith that we will all survive somehow. Nah, that's not faith. That's shit.

So I guess there's just one point that you're forced to realize. If shit happens, no one will clean the mess for you. So you, yes you. Go take a deep breath and move on. Have a lil faith that you don't have to understand all the shit.

We are all tired and scared. Denying it doesn't change the truth.
Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world head-on, guns blazing.

-MG-

I heart... [15 Nov 2007|02:14pm]
[ mood | high ]

1. Armin Van Buuren.
I haven't listened to this type of music for a while, but since I'm going to MOS in 2 weeks (yayyay!), I thought it would be a good idea to refresh my jiggle a bit =p

2. Edith Piaf.
I only have a couple of her songs that I d/l randomly, but seeing La Vie en Rose last night made me want to buy the whole album!!

3. Copperpot's dipping.
It's inside the goodie bag last night. We got 2 boxes, one is Guacamole with salsa and the other one is Smoked trout with wasabi. Best dipping I've ever had. I love mixing up stuff -literally-

4. Outdoor cinema.
The stars. The grass. The ice creams (always?). Well not so much for the flies...

5. Thursday.
Coz that means tomorrow is Friday. Hence..it's THAT close to the weekend!!

weeeeeeeeeeee.

I don't understand, I tried so hard to be tan on my holiday -didn't work-, but now I got burnt on my shoulders just because I ate lunch in the park -for like 20 mins-? Ouch - wasn't prepared for this!

But anyway here I am again, back in the game. If it doesn't work, then hey what's new.
At least I tried :)

Oh I'm gonna see 'La Vie en Rose' tonight (finalleeyyy!!)
