Love For My First Bootz

Lately, I have this mood for boots.
Well, I should say I’ve fallen in love with boots ever since my first visit to Perth, Australia during in the month of July. Gosh! This has reminded me about my long postponed plan to blog about my Perth trip. Oh my.. =X


My mum got me these boots for $19 (after discount). Thank you mum! It costs about RM62.70 in Malaysia ringgit. I don’t know are they consider cheap but my friends said they are! So, I assume I got a good bargain for a high heel with fish mouth booths! ^^



That is when my interest for boots begin and I like seeing myself wearing one because firstly, it makes me look classic. Next, I feel myself look stylish. Lastly, it make my feet look smaller (I have square, wide feet).


Another thing is, I start to learn wearing lagging. I know I might sound funny to some of you. Frankly, I didn’t dare to wear lagging because it looks somehow weird when seeing a pair of black, tight object from the above. Don’t you feel weird too? Anyway, it matches well with a pair of boots. I learned this fashion from the Australian. Guess, I can call this cross-culture ;)



Seriously, they look great in their winter outfit! I mean the Australian! I love their dress up which is simple and stylist. Too bad, I can’t wear that in Malaysia or I will be killed by those thick and warm material under the hot sun~


I love my first boots from my mum. Again, thank you mummy =D


P/s: Although high heel boots are pretty, they can be very painful to your leg muscles when they’re wore in a long period of time. They say, no pain no gain – which is true =/


Sorry for my wrong calculation. The boots price has been corrected. It’s about RM62.70.

The Gan Cheongness Is Attacking Me

I don’t know why but I really feel gan cheong.
In case if you don’t understand Cantonese, it means nervous.
I can’t help, seriously.


I woke up feeling nervous since morning till now. I have no idea why I even wanna blog about it. Guess, this is one of the good way to release my stress.


Better prepared myself with all the long to-do-list. I need to get them ready before the institute which is this coming Sunday! SUNDAYY!!!

Cute Earring Collection

Earring is one of my favorite types of collection and I owned quite a number of them. I find wearing earring is one of the fun ways in expressing the uniqueness of one’s personality. Sometimes, a personality is shown out when wearing the right type of earring even with a plain tee or singlet.



Normally, I will prone to looking for unique and medium-size of earring. I like my stand out earrings but not too dramatic.


Of late, I found these set of earrings at a mini shop and feel proud and happy in owning them. I love the color and the of the design. I mean those 3 set which are still hanging on the brown cardboards. My short bob hair suits these type of earring at the moment but not sure how will it look like when my hair is getting longer.


earring collection

At normal days, I like wearing button earrings.


Aren’t them cute?
I am really happy wearing them ever since I bought them.
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee… I feel so lucky =D


How about you?
Do you like collecting earring too? If yes, any particular color, size or design that you fall most for?


P/s: Oh ya, the 3 pairs of earring which I bought cost only RM10. Good deal!

Masterpiece On Water Bottle

A month ago, Calvin and I attended an art exhibition at Central Market, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) after receiving an invitation from Yi Sin. She is Calvin’s friend who is passionate and love making art.


I have been hearing a lot about her from Calvin and I am glad that we had finally met for the very first time in the exhibition itself. This art exhibition is organized by BROS and the theme is called ‘Cheers 2 Art’.


Seriously, I am always a fans of BROS! I love their bottle design.



What actually attracted me to attend this art exhibition is the involvement of our young local artist, besides Yi Sin herself. I always have the heart for art although I am not in the path for it. For me, art is a way for the creators to express themselves with the use of various mediums. Isn’t it wonderful?



I like this idea :)


And here are the 8 masterpieces which are printed on BROS BPA free water bottles together with their canvas and short description on each work.


bros exhibition trailer


Among all the 8 masterpieces, I personally, without bias like Yi Sin’s work on polar bear. The work is simple but very meaningful.




The message which Yi Sin want to send out is our polar bears are enduring the global warming effect. Their habitat is affected. The article stated that it took 9 days for a polar bear to search for ice – which is an alarming message to all of us.





Instantly, it reminded me about the movie ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ where the whole world is flooded with water. Isn’t it scary? What have we done? And how can we save ourselves and future generation? All those studies from Biology and Chemistry came back to me and I remembered. Gosh! I don’t know what else I can do other than using reusable water bottle, recycle bag and reduce the use of electricity.


So, this is Yi Sin with her polar bear work.


She is such a lovely and friendly girl.
Also, she has a very creative mind! =D




During in the exhibition, Yi Sin personally explained and showed her work to both of us (so lucky!). She told us that besides the idea of the polar bear skating on ice (which I think is already very creative and inspiring!), her design is very special because you can see a 3D effect at the back of the bottle.

What you will notice is that you can see a polar bear swimming in front of the ice berg with fishes both in front and back perspectives. She told us that this is a new concept which she brought out and BROS company really impressed with the idea. WOW!

She is even the pioneer of this idea! Good job girl!


You can find her at her website. Check out her work on children books at www.byyisin.com


This was Yi Sin’s booth:

I even received a small, thoughtful gift from her. Ahhhwwww.. So cute~


Here are other works done by other ‘Da Vinci’. They are all good too!
I am really impressed and thrilled with their works. Oh gosh.

Aren’t they beautiful?
I can instantly feel that water that filled in either these bottles taste better. LOL! What am I taking about. Probably you can gain inspiration in each drop you consume. wte =P


Well, I must say, the idea of this exhibition is wonderful and impactful. Maybe, not many care for the message of the global warming effect but I do. Besides, the idea of immortalized all these messages onto attractive and reusable water bottle is brilliant. User will be reminded and encouraged to make the world a better place from time to time. Lol.. suddenly I sound so noble – which is good :)


Probably due to the above reason (besides showing our support for Yi Sin’s work), Calvin bought me the pink polar bear bottle! Frankly, I love this sweet pink from BROS so much. The color of white, brown and pink blended so well and it gives this sweet girlish feeling. Thank you dear! I love it soooooooooooooo much <3


bro34 We are showing the support for our Young Malaysian Independent Artist *proud*

bro35 RM16 per bottle. Special price for visitor who went to the exhibition.


Yi Sin’s signature! So cool!


I think, this concept is brilliant and it is a good effort in sending message to the society about the global warming effect. Also, this is a good way in supporting our local artists’ work. Let’s do something about this.


P/s: I heard, these bottles are limited edition. Probably you can still get them in the selected shopping malls. If you do, please buy and support them! After all, they are too adorable to be missed out, right? ;)


P/s/s: There is a 2nd part of this exhibition. More craft work from other artists in the coming blog post… :)


P/s/s/s: Do share this post around with your friends as I think it’s one of the good ways to support our young local artists. They need more exposure for their hardworks.

Which Comment Systems Better?

Dear readers,


Lately I’m playing with the blog commenting system but not aware that I’ve changed the setting. Before I thought of correcting my mistake, I found a number of quality comments where my readers responded to the question with their personal sharing. I am really happy and excited with comments I received lately from you!

I am serious!!! =D


It’s been a year I’ve not received much comments and I thought you don’t love me anymore… *sob*

However, from this incident, I realize I might be wrong (please prove me wrong and tell me you still love me) *desperate mode*


I remembered that there were several times I received complain from my friends that they couldn’t comment because the system failed to post their writing. After several attempts, they gave up and chose to sms or send me message in FB instead.


I don’t know if this happen to you too? I really wish to know so that I have an idea on how to handle this matter. So here is the question. Which comment system below is better?


1. Disqus


Example of this system: Have I Made You Smiled?


2. Blogger



comment2 copy

Example of this system: An Effort Exchanged A Smile


Here is a poll to on these 2 systems and I really hope to hear from you. Please help me to figure out which one I should use in the coming blog posts. I am really undecided at the moment.



I can’t deny that each of your response mean a heaven to me although people keep on saying, “blog for yourself and not for others”. Well, yes and no for certain extend. For me, blog works both sides and the experience is more meaningful when there is ‘give and take’ situation.

Looking forward to hear from you soon. Thank you dears~


P/s: Coming post on Cheers 2 Art. Stay tune.

Life Is Short But Worth It

Life is short but live it meaningfully. That’s what has been one of my favorite quotes whenever I face challenges.


Sometimes I am thinking:

Why regrets when you have made a decision?
Why love those who don’t know how to treat you right?
Why hate life when there are various ways to love?
Why not pursuing dreams and do things you love when life is so short?
Why limit yourself when you can do better?


Why, and why?

An Effort Exchanged A Smile

When I was young, I wish to have a grandfather.


I wish that he will play with me, buy me candy, hug and throw me in the air, then of course catches me, safe me when I’m being beaten, pat me to sleep and hear me squeaking.


But then, I never had a grandfather. Unfortunately. I mean, I do have but they left before I could speak ‘gong gong’ (means grandpa in Chinese). For all this while, I have this perception that grandpa must be looking like Santa Clause or ‘Chai Sen Yeh’ ( Chinese’s God of wealth) which now to think about it is kinda ridiculous. Or.. maybe he looks like Albert Einstein? Lol.


eggie9 This has reminded me of my play on chicken eggs. Link.


Guess God must have heard my little secret and borrow me Calv’s grandpa where I could make and give birthday present to him, for a grandpa. It is just a simple card and I never expect for any return.



There are Chinese characters which wrongly written. Forgive a banana who doesn’t know the right way to copy write >.<


Well, I received return and it’s a very warm and happy smile from him. The moment is so wonderful and even after 2 months, I am still  happy with what I’ve done for gong gong. I feel lucky =)


Do you ever have the chance to play with your grandfather?
What are the experiences that your grandfather gives you?


I am curious to know.

Have I Made You Smile?

They say, nothing beats a beautiful smile.
I say, nothing beats a funny look.

Often, I don’t like to admit that I have cute or funny face because that adjectives don't impress me. Somehow, after 24 years of makan nasi dan membesar, I have to agree that.... I do have a very funny that can make people smile.

Playing with my camera's smile detection function. It will automatically snap when it detects smile. I think i look like a retarded person more. Oh my.

I grow up and have this new perception that, life doesn't have to be all serious and dull. Ones should relax and add in some humors in themselves as I believe we have enough stress in everyday life. Bringing out the playful side once in awhile even at the age of an adult (who cares!?) wouldn't do harm. In fact, it allows the happy hormone regulate the body - and you will become more cheerful!

So my question now is, have my funny face made you smile?

Birthday Celebration At Zen Japanese Restaurant, Sunway Pyramid.

It has been one and a half month ever since my 24th birthday. I would say, I have a very fulfilling and fabulous birthday celebrations and it happened for 5 times before it last. My first celebration was with June and Letchu. Second with Irene. Third with Calv. Forth with May. Fifth with the surprising groups.


It sounds crazy, doesn’t it?
5 times and they were all well-spent.


This happened when everyone is getting busy with work, unlike me… :(
Anyway, I am glad to have spent one Friday night with Mamak this year as most of the time, we skipped the chance.




Mamak or who known as May brought me to Zen Japanese Restaurant at Sunway Pyramid for authentic Japanese food – especially for raw salmon! Roooooarrrrr!!



My favorite bowl of raw salmon with avocado and salad. They all mix well, surprisingly! =D

may4 Yum… ^^


Seriously, I have fallen in love with Zen’s food. They are all fresh and taste really awesome! Their salmon sashimi is so thick with beautiful texture. Each bite is so springy and you will find your tongue playing with the food before they melt on your taste bud! Oh my… I miss my time at Zen Japanese Restaurant and I swear with all my heart!


may5  may6  may7


I like the ambience here. They have this Japanese feels. Unique and cozy. But kinda packed when the crowds is too big.


This is Mamak who will appear occasionally in my blog.. ^^


may11   Simply gorgeous~



We purposely dressed gorgeously that night in order to celebrate our day together besides for my birthday. We believe that dressing up is one of the ways we appreciate, respect and love ourselves. Also, it’s a way to boost up our confident as a lady (ah! I’m a lady by now. Call me beautiful and not cute k? tqvm >.< )



We were lucky to have one of the waiters to help us snap a picture during billing (that’s one of the best time to get help. lol..)


I always say that, happy time passes fast. You wouldn’t aware the night ended so fast when you spent quality time together with your loved one, including your buddy. And I still agree with my statement.

Portraits style. Creative.


We both actually very reluctant to end our night that soon because it’s hard to meet each other. Thus, we spent time wandering around the mall and continued chit chatting although all shops were already closed. Like usual, we did some photo shooting sessions in the mall. She always says, “This is so curryegg” and often, I just smiled naughtily at her… =P


The results are good and I love what we got.

I love my heels seriously! I have never owned any gorgeous heels before this because mum discouraged me to have one. She said it will hurt the legs. Well, I do agree but still, girl needs at least one pair, right?


Mamak, I know you have heard this thousands of time. Somehow, I worry you will forget. Thus, let me berleter sekali lagi. Thank you for the treat (I know it’s pricey!) and time you’ve reserved for me. I am really happy till now. Recalling those wonderful moments and blogging them now curve a smile on my face. You’re truly an angelic friend I have. Thank you for being my friends. I love you for whoever you are (and I am sure you know it).






Looking forward for more quality time with you.
Love you!


P/s: Zen Japanese Restaurant serves quality food with good service. Wish to go there again but then, it’s kinda pricey. Ahhhwww… I miss their fatty raw salmon!
