Rainy Season

My heart
get visited by a rainy season
since cold november

o why do rain has to come?
may be
just like the plants need water
my soul need it to grow stronger

so I believe
after the rain
there will always be sunshine
& when it comes
I will treasure it, cherish it, & make the most out of it

and she is soooo happy till she forgot all bout her birthday, so we decided to throw her a surprise birthday dinner. The gang ask me to ask her out to 1-U, without letting her know the rest of the gals will be there waiting for her. Since she got her mind full of *ahem, u know who he is... its not so difficult when I ask her to go 1-Utama with me to buy somethings... & when she ask me what I wanna buy, & I cant answer, she dont even suspect anything, hahaha...

幸福的女人, 祝你永远都那么幸福哦... 生日快乐

A nice malay song

a nice malay song... introduced to me this afternoon by a colleague of mine

Kenangan Terindah by Samsons
Aku yang lemah tanpamu
Aku yang rentan karena
Cinta yang t'lah hilang
Darimu yang mampu menyanjungku

Selama mata terbuka
Sampai jantung tak berdetak
Selama itu pun aku mampu
Untuk mengenangmu

Darimu kutemukan hidupku
Bagiku kaulah cinta sejati

Chorus :
Bila yang tertulis untukku
Adalah yang terbaik untukmu
Kan kujadikan kau
Kenangan yang terindah dalam hidupku

Namun takkan mudah bagiku
Meninggalkan jejak hidupmu
Yang t'lah terukir abadi
Sebagai kenangan yang terindah

Darimu kutemukan hidupku
Bagiku kaulah cinta sejati

p/s: see the mtv & listen to the song in youtube here =)

My first in 10km run =)

Joined the Subang Jaya 10km run yesterday morning... This is the first time for me.. & may be the last time also? haha. Still remembered when Sharlene ask us to join, I thought why not? Should not be a problem for us, coz we always go to the gym, now I know how wrong am I. Anyway, its not really 10km for me.. coz im too excited when I see the MPSJ building, so I ran straight in, actually I suppose to run further down & make a U-turn back to MPSJ, hehehe..

Am totally exhausted today, physically & emotionally. Cant walk properly today coz my legs are so sore...& yup... emotionally also, my frens who know whats happening to me would know why...

Ya, that's life, full of ups & downs...

This is a song from 阿桑(Ah Sang). & this is how I feel now...


你走了我的计算变差了 微笑在我脸上又被僵住了

如果那天病了 约会换了 我们就不遇上了
勉强是不对的 我们都知道的


一个人的下午 也是美好的

In general, it just means.. love is like driving a car, dangerous & happy. But we have to stop when we see the red light. We all know that its not right if we have to force. The only difference is who will get down the car first.

p/s: sorry, the tranlations is not very good =)

Holidays over! back to work!

Back to office today! So Sien, after a long holiday...

Looking back, I didnt actually do a lot of things.. mostly sleep & rest at home, went movie marathon at 1U (two movies in a day), & joined the usual group of TC *short form for tham chiak* members from FF gym to the historic city Melaka for good food.

Its really not a good choice to visit Melaka on a public holiday! All the restaurants are crowded with ppl. All these ppl are willing to queue outside the shop under the hot sun for dunno how long just for the food... Aiyoh... That's why we missed the best 'lap lap kai fun'in melaka, the shop just opposite OCBC, & have to settled for the 2nd best in town. And its a relief when we didnt see a queue outside the satay shop. The pineapple sauce is really nice. We then decided to let our stomach takea break, so we went to a newly opened shopping mall. Actually the main purpose is to get away fromthe hot sun, & enjoy the free air-con, hehe, in the end, everybody got something.. (hai, what to do, nike got sales, & it just looked too tempting). Initial plans for dinner is satay celup, but alas, the queue is there again, & this time with umbrellas under the rain..omg.. So, we decided to turn around & had portugese food for dinner instead. Hmm, I would say the best I had is the fruit juice from a road-side stall just beside tan kim hock shop, kekeke.

Now, just lepak2 in office for two days, then its weekend again! The much anticipated event of this weekend.. David Tao concert in Bukit Jalil this Sat!!! woo hoo hoo...just cant wait...& someone is coming back next Monday!!! ;D

the making of... tau foo fah

Since I have a long 5-days holiday, with not much things to do, so after a lazy afternoon nap, I went to ah sek's house to learn how to make the tau foo fah!!! When I reached his house, Ah Sek, the tff sifu was waiting for me with all the ingredients ready, hehe... Under the sifu strict & patience guidance, *those who knew ah sek will know how strict he is :D & the fact that he is a tuition teacher* ....tadaaaa.... here is the results

Cant believe it! Tff is ready in about 1.5 hours... Altho my sifu said I already took too much time, but then im excused since this is the first time =) Im not praising myself here, coz the credits goes to the sifu & also the recipe owner, the tff standard is really upto par with the nice tff stalls out there... texture is extra soft with nice rich soy bean smell...

p/s: wanna take this opportunity to thank the sifu for being patience with me.... who seldom got her hands dirty in the kitchen, kekeke...

A lovely weekend..at the Sea Horse land

Last weekend, im presented to a relaxing & wonderful 2 days holiday. We had good food, good rest & a good massage....Read on..

On a fine & sunny Saturday morning, with our empty stomach, we headed to Hole No.9 shop for our breakfast. Actually the shop does not have a name, CB n frens called it Hole No.9 shop coz its opposite the hole no.9 of a golfcourse. As we woke up quite late, we prayed that the famous fried chicken wing have not gone down to otherpeople's stomach :p As we arrived, its a relief to see the shop is opened, & chicken wings are served minutes later, hehe.& So we happily enjoyed our finger-licking good chicken wings, with a golf course view, & lush greenery all around us. Now I understand why Miri ppl dont like to live in KL. They have a peaceful life here, unlike the hectic KL lifestyle. We then drove to another place for their home-made ice cream. Its really yummylicious, rich & smooth. I think it tastedbetter than the big famous brand like Haagen-Dazs & Baskin Robbins, and its super cheap!

After our stomach are satisfied, we shopped at the Boulevard & did some chores before we headed out huntingfor some food again, haha. This time its a shop selling mixed HK & malaysian style food called Double Star.We had pork chop with rice & fried rice with salted fish. The food is not very special, but delicious, althoughthe pork chop is a bit too dry to my liking. Luckily they served all rice with a bowl seaweed soup =)

The 'main-course' of the day arrived as we then checked-in at the Miri Marriott Resort & Spa. Its a nice hotel with a sea view, a big swimming pool and the mandara spa. The bedding is extra soft & with the thick comforter, you dont want to get out of the bed once you get inside, haha. While the sun setting down, We took a stroll along the coastline which lead us to the swimming pool. Its full of holiday-makers, most of them 'ang moh'. The ambience is cheerful with the hawaiian music playing at the background, children's laughter & adults chatting voices..The only dissapointment is there are no beaches here.

around Miri Marriott

We then headed to the Mandara Spa to get ourselves pampered & our first experience of the Aromatherapy Floral Bath & balinese massage. The decor of the spa is purely balinese. Once we stepped into the Spa, we immediately felt relaxed, by the smell of the massage oil & the cozy settings of the spa. We were welcomed by the friendly staff &a cup of cool ginger tea was served. We were then urshered to a room & asked to change to the sarong provided. We enjoyed the 30 min of the aromatherapy floral bath, with candlelight & again some biscuits & hot ginger tea were served, followed by the balinese massage. Its great that once in a while we engaged in such indulgence =)

Mandara Spa
The day ended with a sumptious seafood dinner at the Sea Horse restaurant. (Been wondering why a lot of shops here isnamed sea horse or hai ma - means sea horse in mandarin. Later, I found out that sea horse is the mascot of Miri, ha, tat's why!). We had rice with spicy & sour Tom Yam steamed fish & deep fried garlic prawns. The fish is super fresh, & prawns is savory with just enough tinge of saltiness on the shell. It was indeed a nice way to end our Saturday excursion around Miri.

Hmmm, you may have realised by now we are the gluttony people :p so Sunday is another day of goin around Miri hunting for food, kaka. We had a big brunch at the hotel, then some ice kacang & again another round of the home-made ice cream, & a nice dinner at the Piasau Boat Club (PBC). The crowd at PBC are mostly 'ang mohs', coz its located in the Sarawak Shell housing area for the expat. Food is so-so, but I really like the environment there. PBC is overlooking theSouth China Sea, & its surrounding area planted with big, tall trees. The open-air restaurant is located on the 1st floor of the main building. Its very romantic to have our meal under the yellow lighting, feel the cool sea breeze brushing against our cheeks, & listen to the sound of the waves hitting the shores..

brunch @ the hotel

This is really a fun-filled weekend for us, more like an eating spree though, haha. Well well,I got my well-deserved holiday, thanks to my hero.. =)

This trip have definitely changed my impressions on Miri. It is quite a fine city to live in, & yes, in case you are wondering, Miri is a city! The street is clean, no jam, nice beaches, impressive scenery & most importantly, they have good restaurants too...

p/s: Ever since my old schooling days, I have not wrote such a long 'essay' on something, haha... hope you like it.I think bloggin is good for me, it helps me to be a less ignorant person...

White Balance

Learnt a new thing yesterday, about white balance, & I experiment it by taking the picture of this fruit (aiyor, I dunno the name of this fruit in english, tell me if u know, keke) at nite under the incandescent (tungsten) bulbs from my kitchen ceiling.

The pix on the left is taken with my camera's AWB (auto white balance), which came out quite ok, but the color is too orangie. The pix on the right is taken with my camera's preset tungsten WB, & tadaaa..., the image gives a truer representation of the scene...

Read this from the photoxels website:
The reason that pictures turn out with a yellow/orange cast in incandescent (tungsten)
lighting and bluish in fluorescent lighting is because light has a colour temperature. A low colour temperature shifts light toward the red; a high colour temperature shifts light toward the blue. Different light sources emit light at different colour temperatures, and thus the colour cast.

This is where the concept of "White Balance" comes in. If we can tell the camera which object
in the room is white and supposed to come out white in the picture, the camera can calculate the difference between the current colour temperature of that object and the correct colour temperature of a white object. And then shift all colours by that difference.

To help us in those special situations without having to go through the trouble of manually
setting the white balance everytime, cameras provide preset WB settings such as, Tungsten, Fluorescent, Cloudy, Sunny, etc. Using preset WB can improve on a picture, especially under indoors lighting.

Explore your digital camera, & you will find wonders!

Day by day, am improving my photo shooting skills, hehe, not bad huh..

I still remember a phrase I read from the net --> People took great pictures, not digital cameras =)

Mom & Dad's Kitchen

I'll let the picture do the talking =)

from Mom's Garden

Mom like flowers. She plant all these flowers around the house, nice heh =) Never appreciate these flowers last time when I was a kid (in fact, I always complained when I was told to water the plants) Now I do, they are really pretty, arent they!!

Introducing... pulut durian

I had pulut durian for dinner just now. I am not really into 'durians', but then I enjoy pulut durian once in a while. We learnt to eat pulut durians from the thais, but Im not sure whether its origin is from Thailand. Anyway, Im quite shock to find out a lot of ppl didnt know about this delicacy, even my fren from penang ;p who like durians. Pulut means glutinous or sticky rice. Pour some coconut milk (with some salt added) to your pulut, then eat it with durians. If you dont like durians, you can try mango. Eat it with your hands, the malaysian style, it tastes better that way =) Here is the picture of what I had just now. The picture quality is not very good coz I took it with my cell phone..

This is another version from the Star newspaper. But I think the santan is too much to my liking.

this time... with color!

Its a Sunday again.. wow, time flies! Remember my new hair-cut last week?! Today I went to Ivan's place again, to color my hair, & with highlight. This is all Ivan's idea, he didnt even tell me what color he choose for me, & tat he's gonna highlight a bit of my hair to light gold color! Strange, when he color my hair, the dye looked purple, so I tot its purple color, in the end, here is the results! Tell me if you like it or not =)

台灣很流行冷笑話. 甚麼是冷笑話? 就是一些不太像笑話的笑話.. 有些聽起來很冷,有些聽起來卻還蠻好笑的哦!

呵呵, 你們知道我在說甚麼嗎? 給一個例子吧, 像昨晚我就從一個台灣電視劇聽到一個還蠻好笑的..

一支火柴棒, 頭燒焦了送去醫院急救之後, 會變成甚麼?
答案竟然是…… 一支棉花棒, 頭纏著紗布的棉花棒!!
