Saved by a smile

Truly, it has been sometime since I have actually seat down to seriously right a blogpost - this blog is covered in much more than dust :p Although, I have been active on instagram and of course taking the hobby of journaling using the Midori Traveller’s Notebook (I shall share some of its wonders in further blogposts). Also with work coming along - I have been soldiering on in this not so new place now and I'm glad things seem to be taking a good turn after a year! So, with things going steady I can take the time to catch up with things that I miss doing.

Well, my new team (less than a year old) at work is a full fledge female team ~LOL! Imagine all the fun that we have, and guess what all of them have great smiles – in fact, I truly believe that I am the only one with a horrendous smile. Even the youngest in my team has gotten her braces, and I totally give up by disclaiming very loudly "Ok, I give up - I do not have the guts to get braces, and so I’ll just settle with accepting that I will never have a sexay hot smile and accept that I'll forever be cute with my smile".... Long story short - I have a case of bunny teeth - like seriously, I could easily shave of watermelon *now, imagine that and laugh*

Anyway, as faith has it I stumbled upon Nuffnang having this contest on Invisalign treatment, and boy am I interested to win this *small hope of getting a glorious and beautiful smile*
Imagine looking like this for the rest of your life!!!!!

You know my bunny teeth was really a blunder by my dentist when I was way younger, my new sets of teeth were growing before my baby teeth were off - So, I was force to pull of four (yes, you are right - FOUR healthy) front teeth to make space for the two new ones coming out. The dentist had told me to push the two new teeth daily using my tongue to ensure that it will be in line with the rest as it goes - what he didn't tell me? When to stop. So, I over pushed it and taddaa! glorious rabbit teeth that could easily scrape watermelons! Anyway, since then I didn't really know how to smile and was not confident smiling at all - I grow up with tons of awkward looking pictures or pictures that makes me look grumpy. 

...and one fine day, I realize my cute lil bunny teeth smile saved my ass during Piano Examination

I don't really remember how old I was back then, but I was really young - having me wait for an examination at a very quiet and long hallway of a hotel to enter a hotel room with an examiner is scary as hell - low self confidence? Not helping. Anyway, I needed to pass the piano examination all because I have an Asian mother (like failing is a choice *sarcasm*). Anyway, I entered the room with tears in my eyes and nervous as hell. I remember messing up quite bad cause I wasn't listening to the piece that the examiner was playing which I was suppose to sing the tune/beat back. After the second piece, he realized that I was breaking down cause I kept singing out of tune - it was embarrassing as I have been practicing day in and day out for the examination and taking up extra classes for singing. He then stopped and smiled at me - being the nervous wreck that I was I didn't know what to do but to show him the full fledge of my rabbit teeth smile with tears in my eyes. 

He, then realize that I was failing so bad because I was too anxious and eager to pass - but he did comment to say that I was brave enough to smile at him through my tears; it was a good start for trying to keep my composure. So he gave me a glass of water and tried to calm me down - in the end, he gave me a second chance and needless to say I passed the test! But since then, I learned to work my rabbit-teeth-charm every time I'm at a lost - and recently my boyfriend has learned to recognised it since I’ve used it so many times! I've used it when we were in Taiwan, when I didn't know what the rest of the people were talking about around me. I've used it when someone is asking for direction and I don't know shit, and most importantly I realize people let me off the hook easier when I smile and told them to wait while I figure out an answer to their question. 

There you go~that was how my rabbit toothy smile saved me the first ever time!

In the spirit of Christmas - Being Thankful

This calls for a celebrating, two blogpost consecutively. Ha! just because once I get the mojo it'll last for a week or so, and begone for a few months :p


Remember the new workplace that I talked about? Oh well, I'm proud of it I tell you- despite the culture might not be one that I like, when i say culture here I meant the formal-ness and the dressing know how much I hate dressing up in office wear. Anyhow, I'm proud in the sense that the company owns up to its own mistakes, and also won't hold back in giving back to society.

One fine day after lunch,as we (colleagues and I) are walking back in our lobby & found a project being organized where wishlists of underprivileged children were hang on the tree. People at our workplace could pick one (or more) of the wishlist to fulfil - we just have to buy the present and leave it under the tree with the wishlist attached so that they will know who's present it is. So my colleagues and I decided to take one each. Simply because of the spirit of giving...and well - the wishlist has really thought me to be thankful for what I have.

Be honest, I was to ask you for your wishlist - it would be somewhere along those lines of, you know, buying you an Iphone, Ipad, new laptop, game console..and the list goes on and on and on....BUT, things that these kids asked for? It's basic simple necessities - shower gel, and the only extra request they asked for is just for it to be fragrant.  God! the moment I saw the wishlist - I felt like I was the biggest most greedy asshole in the entire world. Gah! So anyway - the department that I was in got to know of the project and majority of them took part in it. So proud!!!! :D OK la~ I get going....

So people, if you can afford to give to others - remember its a blessing. Practice this whenever, wherever - the spirit of giving. Do it because you can and everyone....HAPPY CHRISTMAS! 

A long overdue sincere blogpost: A New Environment

How long has it been since I've sat down and written a honest & sincere blogpost - LONG! I've started work with my new company for a few months now: say close to three months? It's very different from my previous working environment as this is a corporate company - imagine this: from a very relaxed based, wearing jeans and t-shirt to work and *poof* 180 degree change of a corporate culture and wearing what? formal clothing. Of course it takes time to adjust and adapt!

But hey, I ain't discarding what I've learned from my previous working experiences- and hey, you will be surprised how much of it came into use.

I've met many wonderful & interesting people in my new place- and each of them have different stories to share. It's funny how some of us has similar backgrounds or have had similar experiences but yet different stories altogether. Some have taught me to watch my back and to watch what I've said, and some have taught me not to hold back - cause hey! there's no interest gained in holding it in (credits to: you know who you are).

Frankly, in my short span of time in this company - I've said many hellos and even more goodbyes. But, one thing to keep in mind is that it is not forever... It's all our own efforts, don't be happy by the hellos today if you can't keep it up till tomorrow. I mean, yeah, be thankful that u even made that first "hello" but what I'm saying here is that - if it is not a hello that would last to the few days or a few weeks after, then well... would the goodbye be necessary? I guess I'm just not good a putting down my thoughts, so yeah, that whole paragraph that you just read - discard it if you don't understand it, don't dwell.

I've been really crazy in this new working environment of mind, I'm seated with people who don't mind my sudden outburst of verbal diharrhea, laughing fits, or even my need to be vulgar. This person has taught me to be as true to my feelings as I can - of course we'll also have to see the environment we are in. For that, I thank this person from the bottom of my heart. Please know that the workplace is more bearable and motivating because of your presence.

Pastryville, Hartamas

Sometime back we went to hartamas to hunt for this pastry place my mom saw in the papers - and so coincidentally there is water disruption on the exact same day we decided to go food hunting.  So..upon arriving, mom and aunt went to hunt for a saloon to get their hair washed. While there were doing so, dad, Jackson and I went to hunt for food/snack/whatever you want to call a in between meal...and tadaaaa! found Yik Mun (cause it's right next to the supermarket where we want to buy mineral water from)
The Menu
They are so awesome that they have their own PAU!

I don't know how famous this Yik Mun pau is - but damn, they have their own frozen Pau - like you could just buy it and heat it up at home to eat!!! Ok ok, sorry I jakun-ed a bit.
Interior of the Yik Mun
After a long long long wait for my mom and aunt - finally there were done and we have done our own shopping and what not - PASTRY TIME!!!!!
Interior of the place

love the idea of the divider

counter facing the door

close up of the divider

now you know the name of the place


the deco


The place was awesome, and has a very cozy feel to it - to the point I didn't want to leave but we would be hogging the area---> so yeah

Actually it felt very atas lar, but at the same time the place feels warm and all. I could literally just stay there and read a book. Aaaa~I want to go back...but - I have no idea how to get there :p it feels really far when I was sitting in the car..

Hungry just looking at the pics - why do I torture myself so? I'm going to hunt for food now~

CNBLUE "Blue Moon Tour Live in Malaysia 2013"

CNBLUE Blue Moon Tour Live in Malaysia 2013 - here I come!!! LOL~ So, you I went to a concert yesterday night (after a very long time of not going to one, the last time I went to a concert was in 2008 I guess - for DBSK). I"m actually still feeling the high of it right now. The boys were totally awesome in bringing the crowd the hype ;) 

Thanks for bringing me to the concert and sponsoring everything that a CNBLUE fan could ever need. I really had a lot of fun during the concert- and I must say that it is a very good de stressing therapy :p So, thank you for offering me the tickets! 

Seriously, the concert was so much fun that I can't find the words to describe it at the moment - I'm usually not into very loud rock-ish music, but CNBLUE is the exception ^^ hehe
Farrah came over to my house to get me, so that we could go to the stadium earlier (if there is a need to know, it's Stadium Negara). She also very kindly did my nails to this very galaxy-ish feeling theme - which also fits the theme of the concert. Picture below is Farrah's nails- I have similar ones done just that in alternating colours. We did grab a few bites when we arrived at the stadium knowing that there is no dinner *sadness* but the concert was worth the hunger. There were tons and tons of stalls selling food, drinks and even merchandises (but, I wont know if there are all official/original merchandise). There were also official Samsung booth to intro the new Samsung S4. After eating, we did a lot of picture taking! 
Yours Truly
As you can see in the picture below (and also above lar, have this need to draw your attention to the above picture cause yours truly is in it :p), the crowd were just crazy...and not one bit organized. There was no official queue; I was just loitering around the entrance area (actually quite far from the entrance), and suddenly I was just pushed towards the entrance...and tadaaaa! I was in the "line". There was this particular fan boy that was so annoying that both Farrah and I wanted to punch - the area where we were being pushed into by the crowd is very very near the glass door/panels. This particular boy kept pushing his friend ..and we know that he was pushing because:
1) I got so annoyed being pushed by the crowd that I turned behind to look, and what greeted me was that pushing boy pushing his friend forward on purpose using the stance below.
2) In the end, I think he ended up behind Farrah and was pushing her, so she kinda yelled at him to stop it...apparently he did a shrug and went "what?!" like he's innocent and done nothing wrong - and to tell you, after listening to that story I felt like I needed to hunt him down to teach him manners. 

Honestly, he looked younger than me - and he does look like those loser nerds who is trying to fit in and please friends. But, I don't really know, cause well obviously it's because I already don't like his actions - So, obviously I won't have positive thinking of him. Anyway, at one point in time I was pushed against the glass door, and the security was kind enough to pull me out before he close the entrance again. So to the random kind security guard - I thank you. 
Pushing boy stance...Credits to Google? i google image this >,<

The pushing crowd

The Stage before Concert

The earlier crowd from my point of view
Boice Malaysia is just so awesome, I've been reading their post on FB and even on their website about the fan projects that they are up to. I feel like there are so dedicated and loyal to CNBLUE - omg, I feel so inferior, cause I didn't want to spend money *hides in shame* So, one of the Boice Malaysia members (actually later on I saw a few of them) distributing these fanpacks to any fan who would want to participate in their project; so, to make up for my lack of loyalty and support (as compared to the official BOICE-s? I'm not sure if I should add a "s" cause there are so many of them)...I asked for a pack!! and I did that fan project thing ok~* sudden proud-ness* 
Fan Project! 
Oh, oh! not to forget I was also sitting near a group of fans and I can't help but to notice the fan that they were holding - it was just calling out to me. After much glance stolen, I braved myself up to ask if I could take a picture of their artwork. It was so creative of them, and damn was the fan cute! 
Dedicated and Creative Fans! 
Yeah, we were kinda tired from all the walking, and standing, and being pushed - and to think we have to stand for 3 hours during concert, we decided to sit down like anybody else. But, being the kiasu us - we die die also dunwan to give up the nice place; so, we just sat at where we stand - voila! the view :p I did loudly exclaim "I hope nobody farts, that's like the worst case scenrio" in hopes that if they hear me, they would be kind enough not to do it? I don't know, if I hear someone saying such a thing, then I'll try my very best to not do it on my end lor..don't know what other people will think though.
My very nice and pitiful friend,Farrah - LOL
I'm a Happy Girl! 
So, after much waiting the concert begins!!! I did not have pictures of the opening act as I was still observing my surrounding -,-ll Anyhow, the opening act was good; I really like the beat boxing - and he was good at hyping the fans as well. however, I didn't know who he was and I found out later after reading someone else's blog that he is known as "Koujee Beatbox"? I'm not very sure though, so go Google it if you are keen on knowing :p Anyhow, the concert was too awesome to describe in words - or someone with my talent just couldn't find the words to describe the concert's awesomeness. So, I'll let the pics do the talking...

Yong Hwa~!

Drummer, MinHyuk!!!!

The End
Oh, and the best part of the conert (minus seeing CNBLUE live) is that I met two new friends!!!! I we took Polaroid pics :D hehehe Keep in touch gals, and nice meeting you twoooooooo~
New Friends~
