suckers for romance, this is a must watch. (^_^)

have u ever watched something or read something, it left u with goosebumps & somehow ur eyes start to water without u realising it?
well that just happened to me.
i came across The Pink Stilettos while blog hopping & i immediately fell in love with her entry i just have to publish it in mine.
it's about a movie bound to be released here in October.
The Time Traveler's Wife with Rachel McAdams & Eric Bana playing the leads.

(oh i just love them!)
it's based on a best selling novel with the same title by Audrey Niffenegger.

(i m so getting the book!)

just in case u're wondering, the soundtrack is Broken by Lifehouse (i love it so much i have it on repeat).
seriously, i just had goosebumps. AGAIN.

brace yourself for traffic jams

starting tomorrow until the 30th, most major roads will be closed from 6am to 12 midnight in conjunction with the official launch of Kompleks Dewan Undangan Negeri & the 211th Majlis Mesyuarat Raja-Raja (MMRR).

on the 27th, the roads in particular are Jalan MacDougall, Jalan Wayang, Jalan Main Bazaar, Jalan Barrack, Jalan Masjid, Jalan Gambier, Jalan Power, Jalan Khoo Hun Yeang & Jalan China.

roads that would be temporarily closed would be Jalan Lapangan Terbang, Jalan Song, Jalan Tun Jugah, Jalan Simpang Tiga, Jalan Tabuan, Jalan Ban Hock, Jalan Bukit Mata & Jalan MacDougall.

from the 27th til the 30th, roads closed would be Jalan Tun Jugah, Jalan Simpang Tiga, Jalan Tabuan, Jalan Ban Hock, Jalan Bukit Mata, Jalan MacDougall, Jalan Tun Openg, Jalan Satok & Jalan Tun Abdul Rahman.

the MMRR delegation will visit Muzium Negeri on the 27th so there would be no access to Jalan Lapangan Terbang, Jalan Tun Jugah, Jalan Simpang Tiga, Jalan Tabuan, Jalan Ban Hock, Jalan Bukit Mata, Jalan MacDougall & Jalan Tun Openg.

later in the evening, the MMRR delegation would be present at The Sarawak Regatta so we all should stay away from the same roads mentioned above.

on the 28th, the MMRR delegation will visit Taman Orkid so during the visit, Jalan Lapangan Terbang, Jalan Tun Jugah, Jalan Simpang Tiga, Jalan Tabuan, Jalan Ban Hock, Jalan Bukit Mata, Jalan MacDougall, Jalan Tun Openg, Jalan Satok & Jalan Tun Abdul Rahman won't be open to public.

their visit to Kampung Budaya after that would see Jalan Lapangan Terbang, Jalan Tun Jugah, Jalan Simpang Tiga, Jalan Tabuan, Jalan Ban Hock, Jalan Bukit Mata, Jalan MacDougall, Jalan Tun Openg, Jalan Satok, Jalan Tun Abdul Rahman, Jalan Semariang, Jalan Sultan Tengah & Jalan Santubong unaccessible by vehicle of any kind.

Jalan Lapangan Terbang, Jalan Tun Jugah, Jalan Simpang Tiga, Jalan Tabuan, Jalan Ban Hock, Jalan Bukit Mata, Jalan MacDougall, Jalan Tun Openg, Jalan Rock, Jalan Kota Padawan & Jalan Puncak Borneo will be closed during the visit.

i bet we'll gonna spend time on the road a lot longer than usual.


klutzy me

notice anything wrong in this picture?
look closer.
see it?
ok fine.
look at the miniature hourglass.
the one i got for my birthday from my colleagues?
'where's the sand?' u may ask.
well, that's exactly my point.
i didn't know how i do it but somehow the thing came crashing down on my table and in a split second i had blue sand all over.
warning: please don't let me come near ur breakable valuables. u might hate me after that.

my battle of the bulge

yes, ur eyes aren't lying.
the fat ass on the far left is me.
correction: was
i had a total wake up call when i saw this pic.
taken back in Sept 2005, i was at my heaviest weight.
maybe i even reached 70++ but i couldn't be sure coz back then,
i can't even look at a weighting scale, let alone step on it.
just imagine, with my height of just 5 feet with that much load on.
i ballooned so much, i looked like im about to be blown out to space.
my feet constantly hurt and i had zero self esteem.
most of the clothes i want so badly to wear didn't fit me.
what's worst,
i can't even look at someone giggling or laughing without thinking,
"they must be talking about me."
that's when i thought, this really has to stop.
i had to change.
i don't wanna look like this forever.
and i definitely don't wanna feel inferior anymore.
fast forward 4 years later,
i've managed to unload 10kg of the excess weight i've been carrying around
& kept it at that.
just 2kg shy of my ideal weight.
it didn't come easy though.
i've tried almost everything.
u name it, i tried it.
and yes, i relapsed a few times.
but i'm glad & proud of myself that i made the choice to live a much healthier life.
to date, i must admit i m still struggling to keep the weight off coz i m constantly hungry. sumtimes i feel like im eating for two. :D
and like farah put it, food is bliss.
pure bliss.
so at times, i did give in to my cravings.
the likes of nasi ayam penyet, McD & ice cream are huge temptations for me to resist.
but once in a while in a small portion doesn't hurt right?
for me, better to eat a little bit of everything than depriving urself of some things.
but that's just me.
explains the relapses and why i don't look like Jillian, the trainer from The Biggest Loser.
footnote: pic was taken during juzz's convocation. notice the things missing from our heads now? ;p

are we love worthy?

last nite i went out to celebrate fieza's belated birthday with my besties, juz & bobet.
during dinner we reminisced the days we spent in KK and later planned for another island getaway some time next year.
the destination?
KRABI, fellas!
im keeping my fingers crossed on that one. ;)

we also had heart to heart talk about relationships, wedding plans & how our lives would change after settling down.
yes, we have these conversations very often lately.
blame us for being 26! :D
we focused on all the great stuff of course until one point, we started figuring out plans to prepare ourselves for the worst.
touch wood.

i found it scary that rather lately im hearing relationships that either had faltered or on the verge of breaking up.
aware of my status, i m looking forward to be in a relationship.
i might as well strangle myself if i said that i don't feel a thing when i see lovebirds giggling, holding hands, feeding each other like the world revolves around them.
just them.
i can be so green with envy i swear i would rip my clothes off & turned into Hulk (but with boobs.) :D

but thinking & seeing how feelings can easily change, can be his side or even mine, i m now having second thoughts about this thing called love.
i m pretty much comfortable with where i m now & it's just damn hard to find a decent guy these days.
the potential ones are either taken, gay or not responsive.
not even a twitch. nada.
im giving out hints & sending vibes but u still don't get it, do u?
seriously, do i have to write 'I LIKE U. LET'S HOOK UP' on my forehead to make it obvious?
guys. they just can't read between the lines.
we just have to say it straight on, out loud, in their faces.


if there are no such thing as rejection, i'd definitely do it in a blink of an eye.
i don't mind making the first move once in a while but only to some extent.
that is IF he is worth the trouble & the possibility of being turned down.
but in the end, nothing really beats the feeling of being pursued & swept off once's feet.

i know it's late but happy birthday, babe!

i know, this entry is a bit overdue.
please forgive me for i was deprived of internet access for the past 4 days.
but it's still never too late to dedicate this spot for a special someone.
and that someone is no other than my bosom buddy,
who had just turned 26 on the 7th of July!
she's one person whose smile could light up a whole room,
whose laughter is terribly contagious,
whose infectious love for food made us both heavier than we were in high school,
whose penchant for cute guys sometimes made me blush out of embarassment,
whose passion for life & in search of love is undeniably strong,
whose warm personality never fail to bring out the best in me
whose sincerity made me value our friendship more than anything in the world.
so babe, here's a whole bunch of pictures of us.
im glad the fondest memories i had,
i shared mostly with u.

i dont feel so good.. :(

i m feeling so not pretty at the moment.
more like disgusted with myself.
i dont usually feel this way but if u're in my shoes, u'd understand.
as of writing, while one hand slowly typing away, the other is scratching parts of my body incessantly.
because of this thing called HIVES.
it's also known as nettle rash, wheal & urticaria.
local folks will refer it to as 'kenak kemeh pontianak.'
it's a skin rash notable for being red, raised, swollen and itchy.
i mean VEEEEERY itchy!
just imagine having it spread all over your body, u cant even make urself look into the mirror. let alone others.
for visual, click here
kinda glad im not married coz wouldnt want poor hubby to be traumatized by this ugly side of mine.
