We got a lot of time here, thus we killed it slowly "tick-tock tick-tock" drove up and down and up and down. For example, we went to the kampung bukit tinggi to buy vege and fruits lah, we explored the Bentong town lah etc.
This walk reminded us the Tropical Spice Garden in Penang. Over here the atmosphere is much cooler, thus it wins!

egg white + coconut oil + lime juice (half)
Basically, here's the three ingredients to be mixed together. Coconut oil is about 3/4 to 1 table spoon for 1x egg. If you put more then you'll need more lime juice later. Lime juice is about half piece (this is a quite big one, see?). You got to do a few times in order to learn how to justify.
ok, after stirring them up, apply and massage onto your scalp and leave on for 1/2 to 1 hr. Wash with shampoo later.
Thank you, YC! hehe.....I got somemore 'new' clothes loh! :)

Pocket bleeding again! The si gin na hand so damn itchy leh, broke the fax machine this morning! Today I drove past the the same road to and fro 5x ! Firstly going to get banking and poslaju delivery done. I only managed to get it posted when finally came to the third post office (the MINI post) near my house! Secondly going to PISA to search for a fax machine but they were all PC related with canggih version, so wasting time nia lah. It ended up I went to BJ's SEC 3 times lah! Aiyoh.....really si gin na! I was so damn tiring that I managed to sleep for > 1 hr in Saturday's afternoon! Hardly one you know!
We 5x went to Qbay to have dinner (go my foodblog to read lah ya) then so happened when we were forwarding to Jurlique, we managed to grab the 3x HK stars on stage. They were 胡杏儿, 汤盈盈,谢天华. I only managed to capture their back lah haha!
Later on we dropped by Jurlique and managed to get some samples for trying before it closed.

After I was back from Taiwan, there went another 2x (HTC touch (see pic below) & i-mobile) before I settled down with another one Nokia 2630 (after I traded in the 'sucks' phone (which I bought b4 going Taiwan) at a very ultra low price, OUCH! pain!) . There went a total of 8x. Yoho! I am good in learning up new phone now, aint' I?! Cis! Don't you believe it k? In reality, I f* hate it!
After borrowing for ~ 2 wks, I helped to sell away this HTC touch. Due to one potential lelong buyer stood me up late of the night, I 'for kwan' already and sold it to colleague at very forgiving price the next day. I didn't want to sacrifice another few nights of sleep liao lah. see?! Well, after all, it's a pay lang cheng (hokkien) price to the phone's owner and to this colleague too, no profit gain. Happy for both parties! I am the middle man that kepoh nia.
OK, after 8x phones of learning curve, here's another one. Teng teng teng teng, a new camera. If you were to ask me whehter I love it or hate it?! ARGH! Both also got lah! This learning curve gonna beat the HTC touch, I guess!
All of you should know that the pathetic old nikon camera of mine was not in good shape for nearly a year right? I had put on hold several times of urge in buying one to replace it. I put a rubber band to tie up the battery compartment, I bear with the loss of AA battery power for THISSSSS long and I even had to sacrifice the food pic quality of mine (a big SORRY , in fact!) . So here now came the chance for me to get it :)

It's been kinda disturbing for a few months lately on my right eye. The mosquitoes seemed to be increasing to some times 3x instead of the old 1x. It's kinda haunting me every second that I started to blame that perhaps it was because of the staring-at-pc time has increased a lot lately due to workload.
Argh! this type of checking ah, ai....do it once enough lah! So geli...
My appointment was set at 2.30p.m. I reached there at ~2p.m. As usual, visual checking was done by the nurses before the DR arrived. It's fine. (yeah, I am glad to hear that again! after about 8 yrs). At first they put some 'eye drops' on my both eyes to check and OK. At that moment my eyes were already felt weird...like the eye balls got swollen already.
Then later on, the Dr said gonna put somemore eye drops to open up the 瞳孔 to check more thouroughly etc. I told him to do both eyes lah since already come mah. There were two types of eye drops, the first one was kinda like 'lemon' type ('see see' = hokkien) lah. I hate this loh! The 2nd dripping of such eye drops was about 20 min away. so.....you waited and waited..and gradually your vision got blur.....it's like lao lang bak, you see far still clear, but when you try to look near, ah ha! BLUR...
So there went the 2nd time of checking...this was the process that was geli lah, to me! The DR put the some kind of like 'hair-gel' thing on top of one eye piece (like the microscope eye piece), then fix into your eye lids there...you can feel that the gel was actually in contact with your eyeballs now. Then he one hand holding that eyepiece, another hand rotating the scope, so that he can see your eyeballs all around. At one time the eye piece dropped due to I blink kut..so he tried to FIX again (meaning to open up your eye lids and get that eye piece plugged onto your eyeball again loh, argh!). So after the right eye, same process went to the left eye.
The result was "it's OK!" ...........yes, that's the most pang sim word to hear from Dr. :)
The paling syiok one was, the cashier managed to get ING approved my guarantee lettter and thus the the consultation this time was FOC! Phew~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!!!! it's not much lah I know, but RM65 is 'something' nowadays.....er.....that could mean a 4/5 tank of petrol (?!)
The effect of blur eye sight lasted about 2 hrs oi.....whatever I saw e.g. the traffic light, the street lamps, the back lights of cars etc...all got spiky shapes one like durian! As time passed by the spiky shape became smaller and smaller.

3.11.07 (星期六)光明副刊 男女配
<倒贴的爱> by 韩美云
一个OL朋友平时埋怨忙得没时间收拾屋子,洗晾衣服, 可是, 她却能腾出多余的时
恋爱中的女人为何喜欢倒贴自己的时间和精力当男人的妈, 或女工? 这是一种非常
传统的观念, 因为她认为男人只爱贤慧的女人; 因为她认为男人是生活白痴, 没
有了她便失去生活自理能力, 而自动的启动了自己的母性本能; 因为她想从这些生
有一次也放下身段, 委身的蹲下身抹地板,被黄先生看到了而热泪盈眶, 对这位明
但是,聪明女人必须知道,在细水长流的婚姻生活中, 在适当的时机 "抹地板" 是
女人如果认为替男朋友做家务是出自一片体贴和爱意,那平时吃饭休闲的消费就干脆AA制,因为现在百物涨价, 男人赚钱也不容易, 所以在交际费上应该互相承担,
同时也可以证明女人的经济独立, 更可以避免有一天不幸分手时, 接到对方一张长
长的交际费帐单, 成为'被追账' 的一方.当然, 只有小男人才会认为,'与女友
男女相爱不应该在"倒贴" 的天秤上失衡, 因为当"倒贴" 逐渐深化就会变成"牺

IF A MAN WANTS YOU
If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.
Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.
Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourselves for a relationship that's not meant to be.
Slower is better.
Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.
If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve, then heck no, you can't "be friends." A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.
Don't settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.
Don't stay because you think "it will get better." You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?
Always have your own set of friends separate from his.
Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.
If something bothers you, speak up.
Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within.
Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are...even if he has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into aquasi-god.
He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never let a man define who you are.
Never borrow someone else's man.
Oh Lord! If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.
A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is a two-way street.
You need time to heal between relationships...there is nothing cute about baggage... deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you...a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals...look for someone complimentary...not supplementary.
Dating is fun...even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.
Make him miss you sometimes...when a man always know where you are,and your always readily available to him- he takes it for granted.
Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.
Share this with other ladies..... You'll make someone SMILE, another RETHINK her choices, and another woman PREPARE.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them and an entire lifetime to forget them.

Everytime I watched S&C, I learnt new words / phrases / terms. :) I still remember this jing1 dian3 one "absofuckinglutely". Ha!
Some quotes of the 6th season S&C (till episode #12 only).
...which proves my theory that the only thing a girl needs to get a date is...ANOTHER DATE! (Carrie got another guy asking for a date at the same time when she has just started the first date with Berger).
The sooner the better, may be the later the better, or better yet, the never the better! (Carrie wished not to talk about THEIR ex-thingy so soon in the beginning of their relationship)
He has a past, I have a past, do our past need to have a present?! (this was when Carrie finally got to discuss the ex-thingy with Berger)
"There's a type of date that you can't wait to keep, and a type of date you both know you will never keep!" Carrie met his ex, Aidan. Aidan said" we should get a coffee sometime for catch up!"
Alright I'm not going to sugar-coat it for you, but he's just not that into you. (Berger enlightened Miranda on her date!)
Carrie was angry at herself for picking on things with Berger that ended up spoilt the whole thing. Miranda said,"All of us pick on it! It's in our DNA. It's our way of showing we care!"
The best statement in episode 9 ("The post it always sticks twice")
Carrie said," Berger broke up with me on a post it!" It was written as "I'm sorry. I can't. Don't hate me." Samantha and Miranda said they had too with sort of similar experience aka breakup through a phone call, or by one's doorman.
Later on Carrie met Berger's friends in a pub and started talking about her breakup with Berger that ended with a post-it.
One of the guys said," All we're saying is there's no good way to breakup with someone."
Carrie couldn't help but provoked," Well, you can have guts and courtesy to tell a woman through her face that you no longer want to see her. Call me crazy or what, but I think that you can make a point of ending an relationshop in a manner that doesn't include an email, a doorman, or a missing person! I think you could all get over the fear of looking like a bad guy and actually have the uncomfortable breakup conversation because....avoiding that is what makes it a bad guy! and here's what you should know, Allen...ah ha, Andrew..most women aren't angry irrational psychos, we just want ending to our relationship that is thoughtful, decent and honours what we had together. Now, my point, Billy, is this, there's a good way to breakup with someone and it doesn't include a POST-IT!"p/s: I believe only those who have had such kind of experience appreciated this scene!
