Should I be getting…

Posted: October 31, 2006 in mi vida loca

this?


the seductive clamshell

or this?

the compact mobile living

or this?

xpress music or any other Nokia model, maybe a N70, I’m spoilt for choice!
However, at the moment I’m basically thinking of getting a sony ericsson instead of a Nokia mobile, partly because of the price and the design.

Come on Adam & NB, should I get a made in Finland @ a Jap-Swede mobile phone?  

A scary thought

Inflected Form(s): ogled; ogling /-g(&-)li[ng]/
Etymology: probably from Low German oegeln, from oog eye; akin to Old High German ouga eye — more at EYE
intransitive verb : to glance with amorous invitation or challenge
transitive verb
1 : to eye amorously or provocatively
2 : to look at especially with greedy or interested attention

Have you ever been ogled before? No matter the gender, well it all depends on their sexual preference. Whatever it is, no matter by whom, such actions do make the target feel insecure and maybe at times self-conscious.

I often question myself, Do guys go through the same thing? Or only the ladies. If so, they may not go through as much as us.
Sometimes such harassment do lead to personal trauma etc.

It’s a little different, this year, we celebrate Eid without Irfan, he is dearly missed by all.

so we decided to break our fast at IKEA, haha… I don’t know what got into us, but we felt that we should give it a try. It was rather cheap but the queue was very long. No wonder they told us to be there by 5.30. We reached at 5.45 and the line was growing. By 6.30 most of the tables were occupied. Food was great, but I don’t eat much.

Take a second or two to ponder on this. While we are happy, at home with roofs on our head, food on the table. Others are suffering, tears in their eyes, heart torn into pieces. Homes crumbled into rubbles, future uncertained. A lesson learnt for all of us. Let’s make love not war, lets pray for peace for all. Let us be strong no matter how much suffering we have to endure.  So, this Eid, let us not forget those in Palestine, Lebanon, and other places, let us not forget that we would have been in the same situation, but maybe luck is in our side. We may be the fortunate one, but for how long?

Once again…

Happy Eid ul Fitri

… quali & race of the season. So, will Alonso reign as the Youngest Double Champion? Ahh, time will tell, and that time will be tomorrow or early Monday morning for those living in this part of the world.

The 18th & final race will be held in Brasil, one of the toughest race tracks to drive on especially because of it’s bumpy surface and even a very skillful driver would need to be very alert  with great hands control to manoeuvre an F1 car.  (I’m sure, I’d drive my car into the barrier if I’m placed in such a situation!) What is even more challenging for the drivers is that this is one of the very few race cuircuits which runs in an anti-clockwise direction. More left turns (9) to right (4) would  pose much pressure to a driver. No wonder, F1 is a sport only for the FITTEST.

There are a few questions still to be answered. It’s still hanging in the air. I, for one, wonder if the silver arrow will win this final race. This year’s car is a far cry from last year swift & speedy McLaren. Driver errors and mechanical failures have  hampered them from any chance of  winning a race. This must be a sad, sad year for them, a season to forget. With that, I hope they have made so much progress in the development of next year’s race car since it will be revealed to the public in January. Let’s not disappoint Alonso & prove to Kimi that he has not been missed! ;P

With the weather being unpredictable lately, who are we to blame but ourselves for the depletion of the ozone layer due to our own selfishness & which has lead to the sufferings of others, there is no clear winner for Sunday’s race, a Michelin or Bridgestone runner. Michelin a winner on wet while the latter on dry. Mishaps may occur to anyone, so the race is open but the pressure will be on both Schumi & Alonso. Who is the stronger one amongst these two? Who is more resilient? Both has the hunger to win the race for themselves & the team but sometimes one would have to rely on pure LUCK.

p/s Is Mother Nature livid with the way we treat her beautiful abode? It seems she is, torrential rain have caused havoc yesterday evening as water level rose and flooded roads in and around the city. Cars were damaged trees were uprooted. Some may have lost their belongings.

But, the haze has not disappeared! Humm, it has not rained today!

I want this

timberland boots
I have got no idea if they have this pair of boots in store. Will be checking it out tomorrow!
********************************

coloured my hair again, but I guess this time it’s a bit too dark (L’Oreal Permanent dark golden mahogany), it was much lighter before (L’Oreal Permanent medium brown No 5), different colour of course, before that, it was even lighter… looks good & daring (who else will complement about my looks, if not me, myself! haha), I ‘ve tried medium beige blonde, bleached my hair. I may recolour it in a week @ two.

UPDATED 21/10/06

I didn’t get the boots (pretty surprised that the item is available over here), tried it on, it looks great with jeans but not high enough, so I ended up getting slides/wedges. 🙂 Did some shopping to… oh satisfaction!

When was the last time I paid you a visit? I can’t remember the specific day, what more the date. It was so blurry, I’m sorry. ;( You know I love you, both just the same. You both held my hand, when I was in pain.

Oh how I miss you both, I must admit.

The last days of your lives, still vivid in my mind. I never got to say “I love you”. I was only 9 when you left me, you nearly broke me as the next day was my birthday. But I survived! At 17, I lost you too, Grandpa. You both were there, by my side, you were the ones who sent & picked us up from school. You sacrificed your time for us, unfortunately you weren’t there to see us grow up to be what we are today.

I was there earlier today, to see you both. I’ll be there again, tomorrow. I know I’ve shed my tears for both of you, it’s not something I’m able to control. My emotions are all over the place.

“In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.”—  Tao Le Ching

Preparations

Posted: October 20, 2006 in Eid, mi vida loca

I haven’t done anything. zilch. cero. My hands & feet were tied in the last few weeks, with assignments, work, presentation & God knows what!

So, I’m finally free now, I can spread my wings since I’m off from work today. I’ll need to list down the things I need to do:

  • shopping for shoes
  • ingredients for kek batik
  • withdraw some cash for duit raya, token sum of money given to children (my cousins) and my aunts & uncles & parents, which are placed in small green packets.
  • clean my messy room, too embarassed to take part in the messiset room competition organised by Roba. (I don’t think my room is that bad, but still…) and the rest of the house.

Happy DeepaRaya

Posted: October 19, 2006 in culture, Eid, islam

Never heard of it? Ahh, this can only be found here, this side of the world. We are known to have creative minds & to create new words etc so by combining Deepavali & Hari Raya (Eid), hence a new word has been created! Why DeepaRaya? Deepavali @ Divali will be celebrated on the 21st of this month and Eid on the 24th. So, obviously it a long week of festivities, sale etc.

More about it, go here: Deeparaya

To my Muslim friends (those who know me personally @ in cyberspace)

Selamat Hari Raya AidilFitri,

Maaf Zahir Batin

p/s: as usual I’ll be away on the 24th & will be back on the 26th @ 27th. I’ll be heading down south, so hope to snap loads of pictures!
