After planning to go out for breakfast for ages, Jenn and I finally went out for breakfast today despite our sleeping late the night before. Because we couldn't decide where to have our breakfast, we stopped in front of a restaurant (cum cafe) to check out their menu. We wanted to try something that we couldn't make ourselves so we just walked in and settled down for an Eggs Benedict and a Florentine. We shared half of each. By the time we finished our breakfast, we were sick of eggs. You'll see why. While waiting, we decided to take pictures to capture the moment of having breakfast out during exam period. =P The restaurant had red walls with blue pillars and paintings on the wall. It was a cosy place to have breakfast in the midst of winter (I think).

Eggs benedict
(Pouched eggs covered in a thick sauce on foccacia bread with ham & spinach)

(Toast with scrambled eggs, spinach, mushrooms and a tomato)

Combination of both =)

And we finished them off! o.O

That was the biggest breakfast Jenn and I ever had!! Ahhhh...Now back to studying! =(

It's times like these...

...that we need to turn to Him more!
Been studying non-stop (with occasional breaks in between) & now when I step into my room and see my desk, I feel like throwing up...
I'm sick of books already...
When will this all end?!

Went to church today, and during Praise & Worship session, I nearly cried while singing this song.
I've been striving so hard to do well in my exams that sometimes I forget His faithfulness to me, leaving Him out of my life & letting Him in during good times!
So, now, I just need to do my best and leave the rest to Him!

After lunch, I got a phone call from a friend whom I had a same class with last year. She asked me tips on exams as she's taking a subject that I took last year. After catching up a little, she asked me if I've seen Emma (another girl in our class) around. Apparently, last year she had cancer...was juz initial stage and she tried calling her last few months but no one picked up. I was quite taken aback actually...never thought that someone you have contact with would have cancer. It's quite unbelievable if you ask me. Made me think of Karen Cheng, whom her husband had cancer and survived it and now living a very fulfilling life with her and kids!! Really makes you think twice on how you wanna spend your lifetime eh?

So, here's the song I wanna share with all my readers! Enjoy! ;)

A Dating Guide for Women: "Man Talk" Translation

Was having one of those study breaks and I came across this article on Yahoo!
I found it rather interesting so I copied and pasted it here. =)

Sometimes it's not what men say, but it's their actions that are significant. It is necessary for women to learn to interpret men's roundabout way of communicating with them.
Here are 10 things that men say and do, and what they really mean:

He starts talking about how crazy all his single friends lives are, and then he tells you that he doesn't miss it at all. What most women will think if they hear this, is that he misses those days. This is not true. He says this because he is looking for confirmation that you feel exactly the same way. He also wants to communicate that he's ready to take the relationship to the next level.

Since you recently took him to your family's house for dinner, he can't stop talking about how much fun he had with your brother. What he means here is that he really likes your family, and wouldn't mind being a part of your family.

He teases you about things like how clumsy you are or about how you put smiley faces in every one of your emails. What he's really telling you when he does this is that he really likes you a lot. Remember that men are just giant boys... we tease the ones we love and ignore the ones we don't.

A man tells you he needs his space. So what does this mean to you? It means that you need to ignore him and not call him. Men love the chase. By not calling him, he'll start calling you and wondering what happened.

A man says that he really wants you to meet his parents. What does this mean in man talk? He's telling you that you are his girlfriend, and that he is ready to take it to the next level by getting you involved with his family. This brings us right to the next bit of man talk.

When a man calls you and says, "I want you to meet my friends on Friday night," this is as big as meeting his parents. He's introducing you to his pack. It means that he thinks you are attractive and sexy, and he wants to show you off to his friends.

After sleeping over at his house several times, he tells you that the next time you sleep over you should bring some things to make you feel more comfortable and a change of clothing. In man talk, that is basically telling you that he's wondering what it would be like to live with you. He also wants your things around.

You have plans with him on a Sunday, and you find out that he passed up floor seats to his favorite basketball team to keep those plans with you. What does that tell you in man talk? It tells you that he's hooked... and that you are his girlfriend.

He is watching one of your favorite shows on a night you're not together, and he calls you afterwards to talk about it. In man talk, what does this mean? By doing this, he's telling you that he pays attention to you, and he's interested in learning more about you and sharing more things with you. Men generally do not choose to watch "Project Runway" on their own. If we're watching your TV shows, we really like you.

He tells you, "I've cleaned today." What this means in man talk is, "I spent the day doing something I dislike more than anything." You need to realize that when a man says this to you, he really likes you. To most men, cleaning the house is just about the worst way he can spend a day.

p/s: what do u think? rather interesting and true huh? But I'm not too sure about the words I coloured in white though =S

My dream interpretation

Saw a quiz on Yahoo!7, so I took in since I've been having weird dreams since this year...the following is my dream interpretation. Please do not judge me. LOL
You may struggle to understand your dreams or are closed to the idea that dreams can be helpful. You may be experiencing a stressful period in your life or have some deeper concerns, which may need to be acknowledged. You may be very organised, perhaps mathematical and think in words rather than pictures. You may find that keeping a dream diary will help you spot any patterns in your dreaming and any messages being offered to you. You may have some issues surrounding power or control, perhaps over your boss or closer to home. You may have a sexual desire which you'd like fulfilled.

p/s: don't think i'll ever stop blogging...ROTFL

OK folks, this will be my LAST post before my exam. I have no time to lose/waste!! But somehow I find blogging quite relaxing...who knows, I might blog again to relieve stress =P For the meantime, this looks like the stuff I need to study in less than 2 weeks!

Knowledge packaged in strings of sentences compiled in books

Sometimes I feel so frustrated...

that I feel like killing myself by swallowing pieces of lego...

Sometimes I just feel like going to sleep and never wake up to this stress...

I'm so busy studying that I don't even have time for my beauty regime =(

But I know it'd be all worthwhile when the moment comes...

...And I'll be working as a psychologist, my lifelong dream since I was 14 =)

Counselling people with psychological problems...

...and not forgetting God's plan for me! exciting! I wonder what it is!

p/s: wish me all the best!! i MUST fulfill my dream..i MUST!

...I've finished reading Shopaholic Ties the Knot!

Well, I wanted to finish it so that I could return it to the library and concentrate on my revision.
Her books are all so entertaining...

The ending of this book was simply romantic!
Not just the ending actually, the way Luke proposed to Becky was romantic too but...

OK, I'll just shut up and show u the ending...
I'm melting to the ground!!

"Becky Bloomwood, I love you."

"I'm Becky Brandon now, remember?"

"There's only one Becky Bloomwood. Never stop being her. Whatever you do. Never stop being Becky Bloomwood."

Tell me, isn't that the most romantic thing a guy could say to his wife?!

Taking a break from studying

Came across this song while taking a break from studying.
Enjoy! ;)

Mariah Carey - Bye Bye
This is for my peoples who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby, your man, or your lady
Put your hand way up high
We will never say bye (no, no, no)
Mamas, daddies, sisters, brothers, friends and cousins
This is for my peoples who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head to the sky 'cause we will never say bye

As a child there were them times
I didn't get it but you kept me in line
I didn't know why you didn't show up sometimes
It's something more than saying "I miss you"
But when we talked too
All them grown folk things
Separation brings
You never let me know it
You never let it show because
You loved me and obviously
There's so much more left to say
If you were with me today face to face

I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like
"I wish I could talk to you for awhile"
"I wish I could find a way try not to cry"
As time goes by
And soon as you reach a better place
Still I'll give the whole world to see your face
And I'm right here next to you
It feels like you gone too soon
The hardest thing to do is say bye bye

(Bye Bye [3x])
Bye bye

And you never got the chance to see how good I've done
And you never got to see me back at number one
I wish that you were here to celebrate together
I wish that we could spend the holidays together

I remember when you used to tuck me in at night
With the Teddy Bear you gave to me that I held so tight
I thought you were so strong
That you can make it through whatever
It's so hard to accept the fact you're gone forever


(bye bye bye bye bye bye [3x])
Bye bye

This is for my peoples who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby, your man, or your lady
Put your hand way up high
We will never say bye (no, no, no)
Mamas, daddies, sisters, brothers, friends and cousins
This is for my peoples who lost their grandfather
Lift your head to the sky 'cause we will never say bye


p/s: I especially dedicate this song to Yee Huey who just lost her grandmother. *hugs* Love ya! Though I know you're feeling better now, just wanna let you know that it's not bye bye =)

I think I haven't blogged about this before...

I totally hate it when a person says "whatever" to me when I'm trying to make a point.

And I really mean it, I HATE it!

Wait, I DESPISE it!

It annoys me to the max and I never say "whatever" to someone unless I'm pissed.

So, you know what I'm feeling when I actually use the word "whatever" unless I say it in a bimbotic way.

When someone says that word to me, it makes me feel like what I'm trying to say doesn't mean a thing!

Like, they're just trying to brush you off.

And I totally HATE it!!

But it's weird, isn't it?

If I show my anger, people might just think "that's just a minor problem, why is she making a big deal out of it?"

But if I do not show how pissed I am, people around me will just continue saying that word!!

Screw it! Next time if I'm quiet and do not talk to you, you should know why.

Blood and scars,

Happy/Unhappy feet?

Well, after watching this video, I 'm just glad I always choose my shoes properly! So I had to share this video with everyone who reads my blog! =) It's advisable not to wear flip flops if you're gonna do a lot of walking. It's OK to not listen to me, but do listen to the expert. ;) Enjoy!

p/s: And yes, although I said that my previous post would be the last post before my exam, I just thought that most of our feet (and the problems that go together with them) are at stake! XP

Girlie Day

Where do I start? I'll make this post as brief and less boring as possible! XP Oh, and this will be my last post before my exam...gotta study full-time from tomorrow onwards! =) This is one of my rare posts with pictures in it, so do appreciate by showing me some love. XD

Because Jennifer, Jen and I haven't gone out together for ages since the night before my birthday, we decided to go out for lunch today at this new Malaysian Mamak Restaurant. So off we went, with high hopes and expectations since we miss mamak food so much!! Jennifer ordered a murtabak, Jen a roti telur and roti canai, and I a plate of nasi lemak and murtabak. Well, to cut it short, all our hopes and expectations shattered into millions of pieces! From the moment the food was served to the moment we walked out of the restaurant, we had already made 1001 comments/complains! The food was OK, acceptable...but it just wasn't worth our money. I'll just highlight the main points: curry was too diluted, no spicy fragrance whatsoever, just tasted spicy, that's all; murtabak has no "liao", only some pieces of potatoes instead of onions in it...the supposedly pickled onions that were served weren't fresh (probably from some supermarket pickled onions cause they weren't "crunchy"; the nasi lemak had only a tablespoon-full of ikan bilis (major disappointment) with less than a quarter of hard-boiled egg and a few pathetic slices of cucumber at the side.

Nasi lemak shared by Jennifer and I with the murtabak at the side

After lunch, we headed to Chocolate Bean! As the name suggests, it's a chocolate dessert place. Everything there just looks so appetising and yummy! Jennifer got a Toblerone, Jen a glass of hot mint chocolate and I got a Chocolate Vanilla Martini. The Toblerone tasted different from the one I drank at some pub called Fumo Blu during my friend's 21st birthday party. The one at Choc Bean doesn't have the honey and alcohol taste whereas the one in Fumo Blu, you could taste the chocolate, honey and alcohol. My Choc Vanilla Martini was whoa! @.@ The alcohol taste totally covered the chocolate and vanilla taste. I had to sip bit by bit cause the alcohol was kinda strong. We sat there having a super girlie talk over our drinks for hours!!! We reached there at around 2pm and left the place at 6pm! LOL We just talked and talked about stuff regarding guys, life, marriage, weddings, college days, ex-bfs, the future, pregnancy, birth-giving, health etc. Now you know how we could sit there for so long! XP

Having a girlie chat over our drinks

Since we left the place at 6pm and Jen was feeling a little hungry, we walked home to take a "rest" and to empty our bladders while Jennifer prepared to meet her friends for one of her friends' birthday dinner. I was so hungry by the time Jen and I reached Cafe Primo! I was starving (literally!). Jen ordered Garlic Prawns and a plate of wedges with sour cream and chilli for us to share whereas I ordered a Chicken Focaccia.

Chicken Foccacia

Garlic Prawns

Wedges with sour cream and sweet chilli

It's my "ritual" to take a picture with the food before eating XP
(Was kinda disappointed with this pic though cause the person who took this left out the wedges
AND left so much space at the top =( )

Love playing around with photoshop!
(Was feeling quite stuffed by the time I finished my last bite of foccacia,
so I decided to do silly things while waiting for my food to be digested...LOL)

Ahhh...As I'm typing this, I just wished I hadn't eaten like a true Asian (was trying to finish every single thing on my plate to make every cent I paid worth =.= Dumb, I know...we didn't even get our complimentary pancakes because we were too full! I was so full I could hardly walk! =S Anyway, I really had a fun day with the girls...We should do this more often! I love having meals/drinks while catching up with girl friends. Nothing beats that! ;)

So, till after my exams in July! =)

p/s: By the time I was done typing this post, it was already after 12 am. So the "today" mentioned in the post was actually 7th of June. =P


Speechless once again...

Well, I've heard about the deeds people in Saudi Arabia do since I was in high school and I naively thought that all of those things will be history in no time. But yet again, I'm left speechless as to why such things exist in this world.

Read this, this, this and this.

Have a great week ahead everyone!
