A tree..finally....

The first year we got married - Broke! A month after the wedding... NO allocation for it!
The subsequent year - just got pregnant; hence wait for the baby's arrival!
The 3rd year - Zach's still so young., he probably doesnt understand what Christmas is all about, let alone a tree? So, no need to get it!
The fourth year - Christmas in Spore. No point getting it!
The fifth year - "I think it's about time we get that free we've been thinking about since 4 years ago!," I told hubby. "Zach, do you want a Christmas tree?" "Yes!"

So off we went hunting for one! First to Ikea for all the decoratives....was told it was cheaper there...maklumlah, semua benda mahal mahal sekarang....boleh jimat tu, jimat la setakat mana yang boleh! Couldnt find any tree there except for the real ones! No way! And buy another one next year? A waste of our precious money, isnt it?

Then off to One U for the perfect tree! Found one which I fell in love with but unfortunately "Stok habis la!" was the reply from the guy at Living Quarters. How dissappointed we were....sigh....Things dont always go our way, do they?

Well, so we settled for a not-so-nice tree...or so we thought. Slightly cheaper but looks alright...a tree is still a freaking tree!!!!

There! Nice and steady.....a seven-footer...I'm a kiasu.....saw the 6 footer and thought it was too small....decided on the 7 footer! Now we are all towered by the tree in the house! It's a 8-footer plus that huge star!

Must admit that I miss those time we had decorating the tree at mom's place. It happens every single miss!!!! We would excitedly take the tree out from the box and put up the decoratives one by one until the whole tree is full and nice. So being unable to do so for the past 4 years since I got married really got me missing the excitement of putting up the tree.

So there I was...sitting down there patiently opening up the leaves one by one and finally getting all the decoratives up and about! Not with some disturbance from my lil rascal every now and then and not to mention, some voice-raising on "Zach! Dont throw the balls like that. You are gonna break them!" "Zach! Stop pulling those leaves!" "Zach! dont shake the tree like that!" "Zach! don't touch those light bulbs!".....well....the stress about putting up a tree with a toddler around!

Finally! Our very own golden Christmas tree!

I'm all geared up for the celebration! Pressies to buy and wrap (the best part of all)..but before that....the agonising thoughts of what to buy for whom....urgh! It's never an easy task! Worse still for the men the family! It is just so difficult to find the right gifts for those guys! I've gone through the phase of getting belts, shirts, wallets, perfumes, towels, socks, key chains......any other ideas anyone? Nevertheless, I've always enjoyed buying gifts and sharing the love around tis's just so nice and fun to be giving and sharing during this joyful time of the year!

Why Why Why?

  • Why are there ppl who are just so bossy that they cant leave other ppl's life alone?
  • Why are there ppl who just like being envious to whatever others have and not be content with what they have themselves instead?
  • Why do some ppl just like hanging around asking questions about other ppl's life?
  • Why cant some ppl leave others alone to live their own lives and not asking too many personal questions, esp monetary matters?
  • Why must ppl be so engrossed with other ppl's life that they forgot to reflect on theirs and be thankful for their own lives?
  • Why is it that certain ppl just like harassing weaker ppl thinking that they will not retaliate and make them eat their own words?
  • Why is it that some ppl just think that because they have contributed to other ppl's life that they have the right to question them in and out, up and down, left, right and centre?
  • Why is it that ppl can become so jealous and envious of others' life that they go around gossiping, making false statements and telling tales around?
  • Why must the weaker souls bow to the supreme ones and be trampled by them?
  • Why isnt there any justice for the unfortunate souls who obviously didnt wish for the misfortune that befell on them?
  • Why do some ppl help others voluntarily at first and then expect much much gratitude in return much later?
  • Why must we be answerable to others on the decision we make in our lives?
  • Why cant these ppl leave others alone to get on with their lives?

WHY WHY WHY???????????

To school...

Not me of course!!! MY BABY ZACH IS GOING TO SCHOOL!!!! the feeling is just awkward and I just feel like crying.... My baby is finally taking his first step into the world filled with jargons like:-
1. teacher
2. classmates
3. principal
4. canteen
5. books
6. exams
7. timetable
8. PE
9. .......urgh!!!! the list goes on and on.....

why do I feel like crying? well, I have to face the fact that my baby has grown up and he's leaving his nest soon to explore the world and find his own mind. The day will finally arrive for me to watch him let go off my hands and take his own steps into the world on his own.... Ok..I know I'm being dramatic here and all....but the feeling after we registered him into his kindergarten yesterday just left me with a sense of funny feeling which is definitely not proud that he's entering school next year.......but the feeling of seeing him having his own space without me around to see what's gonna happen to things around him just sort of left me with a tinge of sadness..... What ever it is......I wish my baby would just remain a baby all the time...OK I know that's ridiculous......but I cant stop feeling this way!!!!!!!!

I-Vee: Eh, why do I have problems sending message in Facebook?

I-Ling: You can go to Facebook and see the picture of my new house.

Samantha: How do to add Zach into Eli's Facebook?

Facebook Facebook Facebook...everyone is so into Facebook's like it's the main topic of conversation and the hub for communication with this sudden craze online. I have to admit that one of the main reasons for me not being posting anything in my blog is also because of Facebook! Sometimes I just dont realise the time I spend in Facebook...sending nonsense to friends and exploring what it has to offer in there. There just so many new things to explore everyday and it doesnt seem to be stopping. This is indeed a phenomenal thing that is happening in the virtual world nowadays......
and do you know that Facebook is worth USD15bil?????? by just creating all the nonsense that they are there now........these people are really smart I must say....and they are so successful that Microsoft is considering acquiring their company - info from a trusted source! a whopping USD15bil!!! pity Friendster...they are such an obsolete now that Facebook is such a huge thing in the net! would you excuse me, I've got some drinks to enjoy in my Facebook!

Poor sis...

We were having roti canai for breakfast early in the morning at around 8.15am when hubby received a call from my SIS! The minute he told me it was her ,my instinct told me straight away that it must be something bad. True enough! Damn! I hate my intuition sometimes.........

Sis has met with a bad accident at Federal Highway! Her car (WIRA.....mine previously) has been sandwiched between two cars after an emergency break accident! - All thanks to a young couple who was busy chatting in the car with the boyfriend speeding his Kelisa all the way in the fast lane without realising that sis has stepped on the break on the bumper to bumper jam on the highway. Worst of all......they weren's wearing any seat belts and according to sis.......the windscreen was left with a huge crack - a result of the impact from the head banged against it!

Needless to say, our beloved Wira is the worst casualty of all...front and back badly hit! Let the pictures do the talking!

I didnt think it was that bad until sis sent the pictures to me! Boy! My first reaction??? - Thank goodness sis is not hurt and of course.....THANKS to the seat belts! I dare not think of the consequences of the impact should she not fasten the seat belts that day! Well, it's gonna take months before the car is completely fixed...what's with the way how our beloved JPJ work! I was told that it takes up to 10 days just to get the police report out! It would be fast for the workshop to get the car fixed...but it's the paperwork that's killing! Urgh!!!!!!!!

The headline read "My Baby"........a huge picture of a devoted father giving his baby a final kiss goodbye...... That 'baby' is 8-year old Nurin Jaslin whose disappearance made hot news in the media since last month and with the recent discovery of her naked and brutally murdered body found in a sportsbag, made even hotter news to the nation. And to know how her parents twice denied identifying her as their daughter made it an even bitter pill to swallow.

My heart goes out to Nurin's parents for their anguish and pain. Words cannot describe how I feel for them for as a mother, I dread to think how I'd accept the way my child is being treated that way.

The whole nation cried along with Nurin's parents upon the discovery of her tragic death. I had tears inside me too for I could feel how the parents must have felt upon seeing their innocent, beautiful daughter being brutally tortured and killed in such manner. And how her body was discovered too! Poor Nurin's body was found in such a dignity-less way that even a stranger will find it difficult to accept the manner in which her body was positioned.

I can write thousands of words to describe my anger towards those who did that to her and I just hope that that person will be brought to justice soon. In the manner of which Nurin was treated....if not.....100 times worse than the way Nurin died!

We can all just wish and pray harder that the culprit be caught so that Nurin will rest in peace in heaven knowing that justice has been brought upon her tormentor!

Malaysian Police......Time to buck up and prove it to us that you deserve what you are being paid for!

Nurin Jaslin - May you find peace and solace in heaven. You are finally free from all those torture you've been put through and May God continue His kind and merciful blessings upon you~

There will always be candles lit for you in our hearts....

China Chinese

Received a call from Rachel from NY and she was complaining to me how badly behaved those Chinese are in New York! Her colleague even claimed that he actually saw a woman stripping down her pants and shat (yes! pang sai!) right in front of his eyes! It could be exaggerated but then again, why would someone said such thing if it didnt happen?
Spitting, picking their noses and talking out loud have been the most common bad habits of Chinese people seen around the world. They are just that bad mannered and they carry these habits with them wherever they go! And it's not only found in China but everywhere in the world!

There's a saying which goes "You can take them out of China but you can never take China out of them!"
I've heard stories on how rude Chinese people can be. How they think they dominate the place wherever they go. Rachel said they are known as the ADAPTORS! They can just adapt to anywhere they go, even in foreign land far away from their Mainland!

Rach also told me that Chinatown in NY is the dirtiest place in the city and she concluded that Chinatown anywhere in the world is the dirtiest place to visit. Sigh......well, the only Chinatown I've been abroad is the one in Melbourne and I have to admit that it was pretty dirty when I visited.
The phone call left me ponder....are Chinese really dirty people as what claimed by most people?

My 'other' new babies

My much beloved new 'babies'!

Mini Lin Zippy Wallet~

Damier Azur Pochette Accessoires

Needless to say...I walked out of LV store @ Starhill, KL a much happier, and satisfied pregnant woman! .....but not with the intention to get back again some time later to get my hands on the Damier Hampstead bag (a spontaneous try; thanks to the sweet talk of the salesperson in there) my beloved hubby offered to get me earlier with the choice of forgoing the wallet for the much bigger and worthier bag! Errm.....I wouldnt use the word 'worthier' though cos Hampstead costs more than double the price we paid for the small lil wallet!

.....Neverfull???? 'a thing in the past' now that:-

1. I have tried on the sample available and realised it's not what I had in mind prior to stepping into the store

2. It's out of stock globally and they are not promising when the stocks will be available cos it's sort of a current madness worldwide for LV lovers.....hence, not meant to be for me!

3. I'm an impatient person. No such thing as putting a deposit for something and wait for months to own it!

4. I seem to have a connection with Damier Hampstead instead....hmmm, they rhyme!

Well, I settled for the wallet for I desperately need a new wallet to replace my much much old one and not to mention, to get myself prepared to match it with my new aim - Damier Hampstead! hahaha...who says a retail therapy is a good stress reliever? Well, it might work 'at that point of time', with that short moment of excitement but it can never last for long! We women can never have the word 'enough' engraved permanently in our vocab......especially when it comes to getting your hands on the things that you adore!

My next aim ( if I don't change my mind by then)

- Damier Hampstead GM

"You just have more things to get, don't you?", hubby questioned.

"Oh yes.....just look around..... these people are just brilliant creatures to come out with such wide range of collection!.....there's always something in the store which lure me into believing them with their voice calling out - "come, come come...come and get me!"

.... well, LV to me (and I'm sure to my other LV enthusiastic frens as well...u girls know who u are!) is just like sex to most men.......I can never get enough of it! muahahahahahaha....

...and there I was few weeks ago vowing not to spend too much anymore...tsk tsk tsk tsk tsk.....but then again, I'm pregnant! I deserve some pampering, don't I? That's my craving! *wink*

A new beginning has begun.........

40 Degrees Celcius!

My baby was feverish late Tuesday night, resulted from the water he played earlier in the evening, I suppose. Anyway, he was at 38.1'C at night and I didnt take it seriously thinking that after some Paracetamol given, he will be alright in a day or two!

I wasnt prepared to see a big 40 on the thermometer and I got panicked right away! He was alright at 2.30am when I got up to check on him. Thinking that his temperature has gone down, I didnt bother setting alarm to wake up again to check on him. Boy! I was in for a surprised when he woke up giving me some sighing sound asking for milk. But he didnt even finish an ounce before he dozed off again. That's when I got panicked after giving him a mere touch on his forehead. Boy! It was burning hot! I took his temperature again and was either 40'C or 40.1'C..the lowest was 39.8'C. That's when I know I could not be wrong anymore.
News or stories I've heard about how fever can affect a child's brain came flashing into my mind. Call me a paranoia, panick freak or whatsoever.....I'll do anything in the world to protect my baby from the pain/sufferings he's bound to face!

We did not waste any more time to decide rushing Zach to the ER in SJMC at 5.30am! By the time we arrived at the ER, his temperature went down to 38.3'C, still at an alarming level for a 2-year old! After being checked, we were told that his fever should go down in 2 to 3 days, otherwise he would have to be sent for a blood test should his fever continues.
Well, I wouldnt say that I've sighed a relieve upon knowing that he will be alright. In fact, I've became more worried and told myself to be more alert and observant in monitoring his temperature for the next 48 hours.

It's been more than 36 hours since his first detected fever on Tuesday night. Up till 2.30am this morning, his fever has not made a comeback and hopefully it will stay that way.
Being a mother to a sick child is not at all 'a walk in the park'! Something I wasnt prepared for when I first learned I was carrying a baby inside me! Guess no time is the best time to be prepared for anything until you experienced it first hand!

The nation celebrated its 50th year of independence with a huge bang..not to mention huge expenditure as well! Millions of Ringgit were spent throughout the nation for this celebration! Talk abt paying tax for a good cause....well, it was indeed a huge and extravagant celebration seen throughout the whole nation!

Well, while the focus was of course on the mega, gigantic celebration in KL itself, we were tucked back in a much rural place in Kuala Terengganu, having a smaller scale of the Merdeka celebration at home! Well, not a realy celebration...just being part of the KL one from the black box! yeah...the TV which aired live telecast of the celebration in KL! Hubby, Zach and I were back in KT fr 29th Aug til 1st Sept. The whole of KT city was lit up and it was truly an ambience of patriotism seeing cars decorated with flags and building draped with huge flags. Well, I'm not one who is patriotic but somehow the celebration this year gives me a different view towards our nation's independence gained from the British colony.

I had some self-reflection back in the room before I dozed off......thinking how would our country be if not for the ever-loved Tunku Abdul Rahman's effort in gaining independence from the British colonisation. How would life be without this independence gained? Will the Bahasa Melaysia ever exist? Or will we be called the Malay Land instead of Malaysia? There were so many questions running through my head at that time.......well, there were merely thoughts reflected from seeing how happy Malaysians are from foreign colonisations, free from being ruled by others, free from being supressed by the ang mos!

There was a huge performance done by school children from around the nation on the past Prime Ministers who led the country to where it is today...first of course is the beloved Tunku Abdul Rahman whom we call "Bapa Kemerdekaan", then Tun Abdul Razak whom we labelled "Bapa Pembangunan", followed by Tun Hussein Onn who was fondly called "Bapa Perpaduan", n then the 4th and my all time favourite Prime Minister...not to mention the only Prime Minister I've ever known since I understand the term "Perdana Menteri", our beloved and still well respected Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed, the much deserved "Bapa Permodenan"!

It was indeed a touching moment seeing the performance by the school children carrying out tasks done by Tun Mahathir during his leadership as our PM from 1981 till 2003. A total of 22 years leading the nation and putting Malaysia on the world map as one of the fastest developing country in Asia! He was indeed the most loved PM. The PM who is hailed as the Father of Modernisation. The PM who speaks his mind and never repeat what he says twice in all his thousands of speeches! The PM whose speeches never failed to deliver with much enthusiasm and prolific thoughts. The PM who is never afraid of what others think of him, as long as he knows what he does will eventually bring positive outcomes!

Well, I can go on and on on how I love Tun Dr Mahathir! I was actually quite worried when I first read the papers last week that he needed to undergo a coronary bypass surgery in his 80s years of age. I quietly prayed for his recovery and was glad to read the papers the next day after his surgery that he's doing well and recuperating in the hospital. I cant imagine the day comes when he leaves us one day and how I'm going to mourn his passing! Well, I know it's not something nice to say here...but we can't escape death, can we?
Eventho Tun Dr Mahathir might not know me personally, I hope to see him well again and I hope he will be with us for many more years to come and to witness how our nation continue to prosper under Pak Lah's leadership.

Well, this is another part of me which is not known to those around me. How I love the beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohd. Well, hubby does of course! He actually said "Hey dear! Your idol is on TV!" when Tun was interviewed in one of the TV programs aired on Aug 31st. I actually left what I was doing at that time to catch the program and loved what I saw....Tun in his ever smiling and relaxing manner in answering all questioned poised to him during that interview.

I love you Dr Mahathir! Malaysia loves you! May you have a long life and May you be blessed with all the good things in life, especially a healthy life!


Oh....I can't stop loving you....No I cant stop loving you.........(lyrics fr my current Fav album - Keith Urban (Love, Pain and The Whole Crazy Thing)

Well, It's a cover version of a very old song but Keith just hit it at the right note and makes it sound much much more soothing than the original version....he's such a gorgeous buttercup........Lucky Nicole!

Anyway, I have my own meaning behind those lyrics...I just cant stop loving Benefit! Yes my new found (not really new but definitely still my current fav brand of cosmetics) love for cosmetics! And I've burnt quite a hole in my pocket a couple of weeks ago with these purchases:

This is what I read from the catalogue to help fight dark circles! Am diligently using it every morning n night now and hopefully I can see the result soon According to May, results can be seen from as early as 3 weeks after using it. I'm into my 3rd week now.....well, the dark shades under my eyes r turning lighter but r still visible.....perhaps I need longer time? Keeping my fingers crossed that I've invested in this for a worthy cause!

Recommended by my friend who's been using it for quite a while now. It gives the complexion a sense of glow and at the same time not creating a very visible pink blusher-like look cos I hate using blusher. This is just perfect to give my cheeks some natural glow of healthy-looking complexion. I was actually considering between getting this and 10 (in my wish list in my earlier post on Benefit too) - 10 is another complexion enhancer (dual-colored) and I guess the salesgirl just succeeded in persuading me to get Dandelion instead!

Need I mention further on this???

Those three lil things.....which hardly fill up big portion of my handbag cost me a freaking 400 bucks!!!! I know May must be quietly telling me..."See! I told u! U could have saved quite a lot if u order online!" I know wht u mean May! But purchasing it online just doesnt give me the thrill of getting it over the counter. I"m a very impatient person. Wht I want I'll make sure I get it right there n then. Cant stand the wait of ordering it today and getting the products 3 weeks later. The wait is just too excruciating for me! hahaha!

Yea..the foundation faker is my 2nd I said earlier...I just cant stop loving you.....N it's truly the best foundation I've ever had so far....Still loving it..!

As always, I have a wish list here for my subsequent shopping spree at the tiny Benefit Counter at Metrojaya, MidValley Megamall. Here's wht I'm planning to get soon........This is said to work as a face blotter to eradicate those shiny looking complexion caused by oily skin type. I was actually desperately tempted to get this together with my 3 purchases but felt the guilt deep down inside me to have fulfilled the quota of my credit card allocation for the day! much for trying to save a mere RM145 or is it RM129? hahaha...well at least I dont have a RM500 mark on one bill! That makes quite a difference!

....3 weeks ago....

"Dear, I think u need to tone up your body a bit. It used to be much toned and solid before"

Hint from the beloved hubby about my recent untoned body since I terminated my gym membership at Celebrity Fitness in May!

Alright alright.....I've noticed it myself much as I hate to admit it...I've stopped working out altogether since the gym termination. No motivation at all, whatsoever! First it was the determination to make good use of the gym at the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club. Then it's minimised to using the swimming pool for a total body tone-up effect...then came the excuse of having my hair damaged by the chlorine. Sigh...I know, I'm just finding 1001 excuses to avoid working out!

Anyway, since hubby has given the most obvious hint of all...guess I'll just have to do something about toning up my body before it gets saggy and all.............what's the solution?......I've came up with a perfect one (or so I thought so far). Being able to work out at the comfort of my bedroom, and at the same time saving the time/money of gym subscriptions and all......I've bought these..........

Well, this happened about 3 weeks ago and I'm happy to say that I've been diligently working out at home using these helpful workout DVDs, especially the Fat BlastingDance Mix routine which is my favourite! Cant say much about Yoga cos I dont think it's my cup of tea in workout regime. Too slow yet not much effect as compared to the sweaty effect of dancing my butt off! And of course, the additional 100 sit-ups that follow after each dance routine!

...Now....(3 weeks later)

Hubby: "Wow! I can see that you've been working out! That's quite a difference in your body now!"

Me: "And you think that I was joking when I first showed you the DVDs that I've got!"

Well, I secretly hope that I can continue to keep up with this home-based exercise routine and have a well-maintained toned up body! least at the abdominal part, which is the most obvious part of all when I stopped exercising! Sigh...guess this has got something to do with metabolisme and the fact that age is catching up! It takes so much effort to lose just a bit of those calories! urgh!!!! Well, A woman's gotta do what a woman's gotta do to stay pretty and good looking! Something the make-up department will never be able to work its magic on........ haha!

'Tai tai..."

Phone conversation by a rich 'tai tai' in Hokkien...

Hello, ya, yalor, getting that new LV bag lor.....(pause)
Ya lor. Out of stock liao.... (pause)
I don't know la. So getting another wan lor...It's the box box wan la.....but in white...(pause)
No need to order wan la...this one sure got stock wan (pause)
Ok la...I'm doing my facial...Bye!

I was having my facial beside this lady when she got a call on her mobile.
It was obvious that she was talking to her caller about the new LV bag that she was getting.

"the box box wan la" - meaning the Damier Collection
"but in white" - meaning the new Azur Collection

My summary/analysis on what was that all about:
LV or Louis Vuitton as we all know has made a name in the fashion industry since the 19th century, famous for its handbags, luggages, shoes, and many other fashionable accessories. Well, what I find it amusing is that you do not need to know how to pronounce or even know the exact names of the products by LV to afford one. It boils down to whether you have the means to get it or not! In short, you just need to have the $$$$ to own an LV product! Forget about recognising their names!

If I were to have a conversation with my own circle of friends on the similar content of the conversation had by this rich 'tai tai', it'd somehow sound something like this...

Eh, I think I'm getting a new bag from LV....(pause)
Ya, wanted to get the Neverfull range but unfortunately it's out of stock....(pause)
(I'm just guessing on this one cos I know that the latest range - Neverfull is all sold out in Malaysia)
So I think I'm getting the one from the Damier Azur Collection instead....(pause)
Well, they definitely have stock for that, I'm sure (pause)
Eh, talk to you later. I'm having my facial now.Bye

I just wonder if this 'tai tai' even knows how to pronounce Louis Vuitton!
Well, dont get me wrong. I'm not looking down on this lady or whatsoever. I just find it rather amusing ......on her conversation and the way she described the bag that she was getting. Well, at least she can afford to have one! It was just something to ponder and talk intention to ridicule anyone.......but then again.........

Simple yet touching

"Careful! Car! Mommy!"

Those were the words blurted out by my beloved 2-year old son while I was driving a few days back! I was stunned yet amazed...touched yet surprised!

I believe your children are what u mould them to be. I used to say such words whenever I foresee that he's gonna trip, fall, or hurt himself. So it's only natural for him to forewarn me about the danger on the road when I drive.

Amazing....absolutely amazing....

Spending $$

I have to stop spending money!!!!
Gosh, I was just rummaging through my wallet to get rid of those receipts that I realised how much I've signed on my credit card this month! It's almost a whopping RM1700! Well, it might not be a lot for some people...but it's definitely quite an astonishing figure for me...cos apart from the card, I'm also kinda running out of cash in hand to last me til the end of this month! Damn! I hate myself for being such a spendrift! But I cant help it!!!

I was already telling myself that I shouldnt be spending that much money anymore cos I am planning to save some extra money to fulfill a desire that has been dwelling inside me for quite a while......that is to bring my parents for a holiday overseas...I really hope that this will come true in less than 2 yrs time! Well, can I do it???? tough mission to accomplish! But I shall make it happen anyhow!
And here I am spending like nobody's business! I really have to do something about fighting the urge/temptations/ or whtever shit that is prompting me to spend money!
I've even tried avoiding going out with friends/making plans to shopping malls just to avoid having more holes in my pocket but I cant seem to stop the urge altogether!

May, Xiu and I were just in One U on Sunday for a make-over session by Stila and I spent a total of RM260 for a freaking makeup/photography session and purchased some make-ups which I dont really need! And to add in salt to injury, I didnt really quite like the results of the pictures taken. Quite a huge regret! Damn!

Sometimes I would really feel the guilt of signing the card given as a supplementary by hubby. I know he meant well by giving me that card for emergency use and all....but I tend to misuse it every single month and end up having the worst guilt inside me and wishing that I didnt get too impulsive when making my purchases!

I think I'm a born with the shopaholic bug inside me! A disease which can never be cured and will continue to get worse instead! Hubby has been giving hints to me to cut down in the spending department and I'd make a vow every month that I'll cut down on my habit the following month but it never seem to happen.
Well, like every other month, I'm just gonna make the same vow now.......Spend less, save more!

I hope to accomplish this simple yet complicated mission next month and hopefully I shall have a higher increment in my savings account next month! *fingers crossed*

Note: No harsh comment needed tho. Save all your trouble. This is just an insight of my feelings right now!

Benefit from BENEFIT

I'm sure most ladies out there have heard of this new cosmetics/skincare brand from the US - BENEFIT! I'm so in lurve with their products that I wish I owned every single product from their collection! *I know it's impossible tho*

Well, they are freaking cheap in the US! As low as USD18 for a cake of an amazing concealer! Imagine if it were to be priced at RM18 here! Anyway, I've got 2 products so far from their range and I fell totally in lurve with them the 1st time I used them! Yup! They are just magical and truly understand our needs in having something created to make us look better, and feel better!

They have cute names for the products as well!

Ok, I shall stop here before anyone thinks that I'm giving free publicity for BENEFIT~

What I have and have no regrets having.....

This totally works as the ultimate foundation for all skin type! I was searching for the right foundation to suit my complexion and have tried many brands and yet still not totally satisfied with their results until I found this - Some-kind-a-gorgeous Foundation Faker! It leaves my complexion totally smooth and naturally blended to create a flawless look, unlike others which give me a look like a porcelaine doll all made up and having the different shade from my neck!

This is the answer to having a lasting make-up! It works as a transluscent layer to prevent our make-up from smudging! I've always had the problem of having my eye-shadow being smudged after a few hours and then having my eyes looking like panda, especially the under circles. So this She-Laq is totally helpful in keeping my eye-shadow in place with a touch of gloss on them! It not only works on the eyes, it's also applicable for lipsticks, blusher and mascara! Isnt it great? To my understanding, it's the only products in the world to have such purposes!

What I'd like to have soon.....

eye con - (eye cream with fading action)

realness of concealness (all in 1 concealer mini kit)

Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer

10 - Sexy Sweep (*the name of the product is '10' itself)

Well, I've truly benefitted from BENEFIT! More to benefit from I'm sure!

I know myself pretty too well! I'd be tempted to get more! Think I've caught the shopping bug that is hard to rid off! Wait a minute......I think this bug has been parasiting in me for a very long long time.......well, it's still there happily sitting inside me and I'm sure it's not gonna leave me for a pretty long time.......

Back to Basics

Why do holidays have to end so fast? It's always like that isnt it? Time crawls when u have something to look forward to and it never seem to tick the way u expect it to be...but when the day/holiday u've been looking forward to finally has to zoom past u like the Concorde! With just a blink or two of the eye........the holiday is over and we are back to basics once i'm looking forward to my next holiday end of the year!
Nevertheless....our trip to Club Med Cherating was indeed an enjoyable one with lotsa quality time spent with hubby and son. 29th June - We started our journey at 10 in the morning and made a brief stop at Maria's parents' house in Bentong at around 11.30 for lunch and some durians....Continued our journey to Cherating and finally arrived at our destination at approximately 3.30. We were greeted with nice views of greeneries from the path leading to the reception area and where the village is.

The next 2 days filled with total relaxation for the adults and fun and play for the kids. We spent lotsa time by the beach and just breathe in the fresh sea breeze along the Cherating coast, listening to the caliming sound of the waves. It was indeed a well-deserved short break for hubby who's been working his ass off since the CNY! Well, the food was great! The night entertainment was fun! The whole experience was marvellous that the only consolation we had before we finally left the village on Saturday was that we made a pact and plan to come back every year!
So, hopefully that'll materialise once again and we shall be greeted once again at Club Med Cherating same time next year! Well....let the pictures do the talking!
