My hubby owned a car and a motorbike… but to be honest I prefer to ride the motorbike any day, except when it’s raining of course. The reason?

Traffic Jam!

Traffic Jam is a major problem here in Kuala Lumpur, because it seems everyone owns a car and is driving it somewhere. A short trip that would have taken 15 minutes can turn to 1.5hours for no apparent reason. It gets worse when there is an apparent reason like traffic accidents or a car breakdown. Then you wish you were on a motorbike because then hubby darling will swerve left, swerve right, and we are home free.

As we having dinner at the IL’s tonight, it is the bike again… vrooom vroom and away…

Listen up women, I may just have found the secret to a happy marriage or so according to this email I got this morning..

A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.

For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside.

She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents. “When we were to be married,”she said, “my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”

The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness. “Honey,” he said, “that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”

“Oh,” she said, “that’s the money I made from selling the dolls.”

Do you agree folks?? hehehe…. i would die of stomach ulcers first… i think… lolzzz..

Seriously though, open communications has always been important to me and my hubby. Confrontation is sometimes the best way to get rid of unwanted feelings harboring in our hearts and poisoning the mind…So talk your heart out to your significant other and you’ll have a happier marriage… that’s our formula :-)

To a happier marriage… cheers!

Obviously it does to some employers or those cheeky ones that it.

A friend of mine who recently returned to Singapore from a short stint in Bangkok is currently looking for a job. She attended an interview this afternoon for a part time position and was told that she was over qualified (although the position had actually requested for someone who has experience). However, as the interview progressed the male interviewer who is obviously the owner as well, owned up that he was actually looking to find a younger girl to fill the position and he would not mind if the younger (and prettier) girl did not have as much experience as he will “helped” her.

Lucky for this chap, my friend found his words and expression quite comical and actually had to put up a straight face because when he told her of his requirements he had a “kodak moment” kind of look going on…if it were me… hmmm not sure what would have happened to him though.

Sigh… such is life… toughen up gurlfriend. If you’re reading this.. good luck on your job search ya…

I was over at my in-laws today and was watching Oprah Primetime. She did an interview with Sarah Jessica Parker about her new line of fashion wear officially called “Bitten Sarah Jessica Parker”. What attracted me to the particular product was not only was it stylish but how affordable it is. All pieces are going for less than $20. The selections range from tops to pants and from sweaters to office wear for all ages and all sizes!

I went like WOW!!!

So I got home, what do I do?? I went surfing of course. According to the website’s FAQ, the line is exclusively sold at Steve & Barry’s stores in where else, but the US of A. Hmm… and not sold online either…. shoot, there was a piece that I particularly liked… oh well….. that’s life….

I used to love to dance. In fact if I think about it, I still love to dance. I remember going dancing with colleagues and friends back in Singapore till the wee morning when I was younger (hmm I sound so old don’t I) The body swaying to the music, singing along with the band – ahhh those were the days ;-)..

Recently though in Malaysia, a new trend has emerged. The belly dancing. My SIL’s friend took it up and she performed at one of her company’s function and she was good. Then I was chatting with an online friend of mine – that has quickly turned to be off-line friend as well – that she took up belly dancing for a while now and has even performed for her family and close friends fully geared up with the costume she got from ebay..I went WHOOOOAAA! Awesome!. She sent me a video of her dancing although she did say she sue me if I post it here! Lol!!!

Anyway, this trend is sort of growing on me. Hmm, now I need some guts to sign up.. Anyone game??

A friend of mine was involved in a car accident with her family recently. They were on their way home from the beach – a beautiful picnic. They had a very good time and tragedy was the last thing on anyone’s mind.But tragedy did strike. Although the weather had cleared up, it had been raining that afternoon and the road must have been slippery. The drive was smooth though and the kids, contented, was sleeping in the backseat while mommy and daddy was just talking about the awesome day that they had.

Then suddenly daddy said “look at the lorry”… and the next thing they knew, “that lorry” – which was on the opposite direction was heading towards them! Daddy did not manage to avoid a direct hit as the lorry was travelling at a crazy speed. The car spun off the road and stopped at the side of the road. Two other cars were involved.

Luckily help came fast. While mommy and daddy exited the car, someone carried the kids out of the car. They were all frantic and traumatized but otherwise fine. No one was injured.

Alhamdullilah! – Thank GOD!

Moral of the Story: Appreciate and Treasure what you have. You never know how long they are going to still be with you.

Each day we go through our lives thinking that things would always be good, we are going to be healthy all our lives, nothing bad will every occur and we are going to live another day. If only they are true.

The truth is, we will get sick at one point in our lives, sometimes bad things happened and one thing’s for certain, death will visit one day. The question here lies, are we prepared for those times, emotionally and financially? Do we leave enough for our dependents? I can’t say much for emotion as that would really depends on your state of mind and your family’s. Financially though, we can do something.

One word – Insurance.

With insurance comes the feeling of security should something bad happens. With insurance you know that your dependents would be covered for a short duration while they adjust to the present situation. With insurance you are covered.

Coverage comes in all form. Companies offering Term Life Insurance and Affordable Insurance Quotes for Families are easily available. They come in all sorts of package and the decision to choose which one should be made together as a couple. Evaluate your needs to determine how much coverage would be needed and consider this factors when deciding :

  1. Is your house fully paid for?
  2. How many kids do you have?
  3. What are their ages? Are they still schooling?
  4. How long more do you have to support their education?
  5. Are there any special medical condition or requirement?
  6. Your budget
  7. Etc, etc.

Get a good agent and discuss further to find the best policy that would suit you and your family and be reassured that you have taken the best decision in toward guaranteeing a solid financial future for those you love and care about the most.

Here are some natural ingredients for your beauty regime…

  1. Use lemon to lighten age spots or mix with equal amount to create toner that will effectively remove soap residue
  2. Apply full-fat plain yogurt and apply all over face to remove dead cells. Let set for 10 minutes
  3. For oily skin, remove a tomato’s skin and using cotton ball apply the squishy innards to clean face. Leave for 15mins then rinse with warm water. Tomatoes contain oil absorbing acids which exfoliate the skin naturally.
  4. Soak cotton ball in warm salt water and press it on a pimple to dissolve the head.
  5. Use olive oil to treat damaged cuticles
  6. Vanilla extract can be used in your bath as aromatherapy while salt in your bathwater can sooth muscles

Well, happy to report the eye twitching is gone. That full body massage from hubby and eight hours sleep on Thursday night really helped ease the stress – hehehe. Now, I can once again enjoy my cup of coffee without any guilt. I guess the body is just telling me to slow down, not the young girl I used to be you know ;-)…plus, the lack of exercise does not helped either.

I’ve been wanting to start on that regime for the longest time, it’s been on my new year’s resolution since, hmmm, two or was it three years ago?? The gym next door to my hubby’s office is beckoning every day, and looking at the ladies of different ages, all decked out in their exercise gear have got me motivated.

Now, what I need to do is get off my lazy @#$ and start taking some action and get fit again or perhaps I should just start with these few steps first??

Arghhhhh! I hate exercise. Anyone else feel the same??

The weekend is upon us. With that comes one thing – weddings. I just love attending weddings, and the thing that I always look for, besides bride and groom, of course would be food, bridal dais and especially the wedding favors. Also known as “bunga telur” in Malay, I always enjoyed bringing home this token as a memory of the wedding and it amazes how from a simple beginning of “egg in a glass with some confetti” can evolve to something beautiful and creative like the ones you can find at Little Things – Wedding Favors.

I just love these selections. Don’t you?? And the prices are also so reasonable that I believe it will fit the budget that any couple might be working on.

Check it out will you :-)

I’ve got this irritating twitching on my right eye since yesterday. If I were the superstitiously kind, I probably thought I was either going to cry about something or I was going to see someone that I’ve not seen for a long time. Not sure which eye stands for which though. However, since I am not the superstitiously kind, I just hope it would go away soon. Can’t have the neighbour thinking that I’m winking at her husband can I?? Lolzz ;-)

Seriously though, I went surfing (like it’s anything new), and this website says that it is normal and generally harmless. Causes for it could range from :

* Fatigue or lack of sleep (guilty)
* Over consumption of caffeine (guilty)
* Physical or emotional stress (not so much)
* Anxiety or phobias (not really)
* Brain damage or other neurological disorders (hopefully not)
* Associated with temper tantrums (am i a child??)
* Eye stress associated with extended viewing of the computer screen (guilty)
* Epilepsy (yikes – touch wood)

Ok then, so am going try to get enough sleep, cut down on my cappucino, relax more, try not to get too excited when there is no opportunity available on PPP, cut down on the tantrums (hehe), and definitely shortened hours on PC. The epilepsy bit, hmm, stumped on that one.

Do you know??:
A perfect wifi setup would not be complete without a wireless phone, a wireless camera and a wireless keyboard. Even wireless internet providers recommend all this while seting up wireless internet booster. Only then can one have business wifi set up.

A leaking ceiling is no funny business, especially if the leaking party is my unit! Oh dearie :-(

This has happened before but it was a false alarm or so we hoped coz it kind of stop and the neighbour downstairs stopped complaining, then this morning my mom had this knock on the door and “alamak” it the man from downstairs – if it’s the lady from upstairs then she won’t panic because the “amoi” probably only wants her t-shirt or her shorts that had fallen from her drying area into ours – but the neighbor from downstairs, now that is something to panic about! And true enough, it’s the same problem except now his ceiling is already quite wet and his cornices are falling off – (somehow that don’t sound right..lolz)..Anyway, lucky for me HDB has a very good and very comprehensive website so I was able to explain to my mom what to expect and what to do.

Hmm.. perhaps I need to make a trip back to the homeland ;-)

Take the following test and determine if you are losing it or are still “with it.” (Don’t peak at the answer ok)

OK, relax, clear your mind and…. begin.

1. What do you put in a toaster?

scroll down

Answer: “bread.” If you said “toast,” then give up now and go do something else. Try not to hurt yourself.

If you said, “bread,” go to Question 2.

2. Say “silk” five times. Now spell “silk.”
What do cows drink?


scroll down

Cows drink water. If you said “milk,” please do not attempt the next question. Your brain is obviously over stressed and may even overheat. It may be that you need to content yourself with reading something more appropriate, such as Children’s World.

If you said “water,” proceed to question 3

3. If a red house is made from red bricks, and a blue house is made from blue bricks, and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?

Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said, “green bricks,” what the devil are you still doing reading these

If you said “glass,” then go on to Question 4.

4. Twenty years ago, a plane was flying at 20,000 feet over Germany. If you recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany. Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines failed. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure….. Unfortunately the third engine fails before he has time to attempt an emergency landing, and the plane crashes smack in the middle of “no man’s land” between East Germany and West Germany.

Where would you bury the survivors?
In East Germany or West Germany or in “no man’s land”?

Answer: You don’t, of course, bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else, you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane crash.

Your efforts would not be appreciated If you said, “Don’t bury the survivors,” proceed to the next question.

5. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60 of a degree every minute how many degrees will the hour hand move in one hour?

Answer: One degree. If you said, “360 degrees” or anything other than “one degree,” you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you are obviously out of your league. Turn in your pencil, and exit the room.

Everyone else proceed to the final question.

6. Without using a calculator

— You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales.
In London, 17 people get on the bus.
In Reading, six people get off the bus, and nine people get on.
In Swindon, two people get off and four get on.
In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get on.
In Swansea , three people get off and five people get on.
In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on.
You then arrive at Milford Haven.
Now the question…

What was the name of the bus driver?

No!!! Don’t scroll up…
just think hard…
and scroll down

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don’t you remember? It was YOU!

I made close to USD$300.00 last month from paid to blog and paid to click programs!! After not earning for soooo long, it feels good to be able to see some nice balance in my personal bank account. With the forthcoming PR ranking by Google this month (or say say the experts) I foresee more opportunities for me to write about at Payperpost and with a bunch of new paidtoclick sites that are mushrooming like mad now, more earning potential there!

No news from the Malaysian Immigration on my Permanent Residence status and what is it they say about “no news being good news?”… so I guess the workforce just got to do without my presence lahhh…lolz ;)

In the meantime, the internet connection is my new best friend and the blog is my new office which makes me the boss …Life’s good… WOOOOTTT :-)

Announcement from Petronas MLYS,

Please call 006281316411159 to claim your prize.


Duh!!!… Petronas is a Malaysian company. Everyone knows that and since I’m living in Malaysia, why would I need to call an Indonesian mobile number to confirm my prize (if any!)

Don’t fall for this crap peeps!
