What will you do?

... If you witness an accident. Not a huge one, but there are casualties.

I was on my way back from Puchong. That was around... 11pm? and when I was about to reach the turning to Sunway, suddenly a motorcycle lost control and fell. 2 guys fell. One guy hit his head at the divider walk way thingie (sorry, dont know what is it called) and another guy got up and tried to wake that guy up. 

I drove passed...

My grandma's 80th birthday

After decided to have Grand Imperial Restaurant as my grandma’s 80th birthday celebration location from the hunt, my aunt went ahead with some discussions among the siblings and daughter in laws. We increased from 2 tables to 5 tables initially, but some couldn’t make it. So the final amount was 4 tables. 

Once I reached, my grand auntie said I slimmed down d! wahahahahaaa! 

"slimmed" me

Tipsy Brew O'Coffee @ Setia Walk, Puchong

Went Tipsy to try their coffee. I had become a coffee joint freak. Not because I love coffee, but I like cozy environments.

Dinner location hunting.

Grandma’s 80th birthday dinner is coming soon! Me, my aunt and a cousin of mine went around looking for a place suitable for a banquet. Initially we wanna have 2 tables only. Just our side for the dinner and organise something else for grandma’s siblings in Jinjang.

this is my grandma. lol...

At first my aunt and my cousin went Imperial China Restaurant in SS17. I didn’t go along as I need to run some errands. After I was done, I went over and picked them up.

Once they got in the car, they complaint right away. 1, the service sucked. 2, the restaurant condition is not well maintained. Lol…

So, we went USJ 19 instead. The one in USJ 19 is Grand Imperial Restaurant and boy were we impressed. The manager’s service is good. Explained in detail and the condition of the restaurant is impressive. Very clean and the rooms are nice.

Of cos our choice is weighing towards Grand Imperial, we just need to choose the menu package now. :D

I’ve never been good with money. I spend every single cent I earn from my job, not leaving a single penny every month. Oh… how can we forget, credit cards? After spending every single penny in my bank account and it is not even pay day yet, what we do? We spend using credit cards, making what we spend negative from what we earn. 

This was me for the past… I don’t know… almost 10 years? And now… the effect kicks in. Although I can say not much comparing to those who need to declare bankruptcy. But still... and I have cut off all my credit cards at the moment until i get myself right on track again. So, yea... it made me quite suffocating every end of the month. 

About a month back, I learnt something from a friend of mine. Every month, set aside some money and categorize them what u wanna save for. Even if u need a folder to make sure they are categorized, do it. And I did, I actually got myself a small pocket folder to sort them out.

For example, I always struggle for money when I need to pay my car insurance every year. So I set a category for car. Be it I need it for the insurance or a little car pampering, I will use from that category. Maybe I need to have a getaway to somewhere near away from the busy city I would use from vacation category. And of cos, there will be many more other categories. But I just started this month, so I concentrate on car first bcos my insurance is due soon. Although it wont be enough to cover the whole amount, but at least my wallet wont have a big hole, unlike the previous years. 

So, I was reading, 13 money tips from the ultra rich and I am glad that I am practising most of what was listed. No, I dun aim to be a million or billionaire. I just aim to live not wanting to worry about if I am able to survive every month. 

What’s your way of saving and advise?

Wedding in Ipoh

No, it’s not my wedding. Not yet… LoL. 

A while back, I went to Ipoh for a friend’s wedding. A high school friend. Really glad she tied the knot. She said she didn’t want to and it’s all purely pressured by parents. LoL…

So, I was doing all these plannings to explore alone cos I will be driving there alone a day earlier. At the end, none of the plans worked out. Lesson to be learnt, don’t plan. 

I left KL kinda late due to some unforeseen circumstances. Along the “adventure” driving alone to Ipoh, I saw a kinda bad accident. At first I thought it was a motorcycle that is on fire but NOOO! The whole car was on FIRE! Then, I stopped at the RnR and had Baskin Robbins and bought some fruits to munch on. :P 

I arrived Ipoh at about 6 or 7pm with heavy rain. I didn’t have an umbrella with me in the car, so I kinda waited for the rain to slow down. 

The only thing that I am glad that I did research and plan on is the hotel. I booked Golden Roof Hotel and I am amazed. Well, if u expect 5 star experience, please look elsewhere. This hotel apparently is new, the lobby is spacious, it’s absolutely affordable and most importantly, it doesn’t look dodgy. 

Once I walked into my room, the space is quite ok. Mounted LCD TV, queen sized bed, no cupboard tho, but they have hooks for you to hang your clothes. The toilet has rain shower! It’s definitely clean and no disgusting smell. AWESOME! 

Looking out the window is a school, so do expect some noise in the morning. If you are a DEEP sleeper then you got nothing to worry about. 

all freshen up!

After I got myself checked-in, I freshen myself a bit and off I drove out and went to my friend’s house. One of the girls and her husband were there alre. So we sat, ate and chatted a while. I even did mehndi on both hands! Amazed how she can draw freehand! 

When I was about to leave, the bride accompanied me to my car along with her cousin and her cousin’s husband. We talked a bit and then I realised the cousin’s husband is actually working the same company as me… small small world!

Went back to the hotel, showered and laze on the bed… and I can’t sleep at all. At the end I had migraine and I didn’t make it for the wedding at the temple. 

After I had enough rest, that’s when the rest arrive and about to go for lunch. We went out for lunch, hung out a bit then went back to the hotel to get ourselves prepared for the wedding dinner. 

The wedding dinner was really grand. We actually joined in the entrance with the bride and groom behind them. Then we sat down, then the usuals… makan minum. 

After the dinner, we went to an Irish pub nearby and drank some more. At first, the top floor was packed… and suddenly everyone left! The whole top floor belonged to US! Well, of cos, everyone went crazy on karaoke, darts and pool. LoL. 

The next day, we went for the famous dim sum at Ming Court Hong Kong Dim Sum. Then, we walked over to have the famous Funny Mountain Tau Fu Fah. Then we took our car and drove over to collect our salty chicken… and we all went on our separate ways. 

Glad to see everyone happy during the trip. Although something happened at the drinking session, but it’s all good. LoL… Saw on FB, another one of them got hitched. From the pictures, it really looked really nice wedding. I hope everyone will remain happy and healthy with their other halves.

Of health and career

Wootz! I can sleep a lil late today cos tomorrow I don’t have to wake up at 4.30am. Haha! I got training tomorrow! I have to get stuck in the jam TO and BACK from office ah, but what the heck, as long as I get to sleep slightly longer. 

This training, to be honest, I totally didn’t expect it coming. To get that position, there are certain expectations to meet. All this while, I always thought I suck at what I do. Of cos there’s incentive bonus and what not that we all get to know how we perform, we even have a list to see where everyone is standing at. But still, I always think that I am not good enough, even if I score above 100%. I thought that score, if I can do it, I'm pretty sure others can do it too, or do it better. So I always brush it off and never expect it to be me. 

I have colleagues saying, that’s the position they want and they aim for. I respect how they are so determine to know what they want and confident. Whereby me… I always have this thinking “What is yours, it’s yours”. I guess I’m just letting fate deciding by itself. 

On that morning, when we were called in to the meeting room so that our Team Lead can announce it to us, I kept thinking “ohh… what did I do this time?” Then my mind kept thinking and thinking. Well, of cos nothing came out from my mind cos I won’t know what shit have I done even if there is any. I am too blur to realise it anyways. Hahaha! 

After she announced it, I was surprised. To the extend, I went speechless. When she asked, any questions? My brain cannot generate any questions. My brain just kept on and on “what have I done to get it?” I am happy and glad that I got it. Like I said, I always got this thinking that I am always not good enough. So, when I got it I was kinda overwhelmed. Like… “Ma! I made it!” that kinda feeling, and this is not even a promotion to TSL or TL. =.=””

So, tomorrow is the training. I hope I’m able to understand and absorb. :P

Now, onto health. 

My uncle has the machine to measure blood pressure. So, after about 2 weeks plus medication and eating healthy, my blood pressure is now 141/90. Still high and of cos this reading is still depending on the med. Anyhow, it is a good relief to see it went down from 190/120. He got the weighing machine as well. I didn’t wanna weigh myself cos I didn’t think that I lose any weight. My pants and clothes are still fitting. Not loose oso. But then… I realise my limbs are smaller tho. Last time when I grip my wrist, I can feel it’s tight and it can stop the blood flow, but now… It’s just nice! So, I went on the weighing machine. I was 70kg…

Jeng jeng jeng… 

It shows 64kg. I asked my uncle, “how old is this thing? Spoil d wan la!”

My office is organizing “The biggest loser”. Awesome or what?! But I didn’t join la. If the thing started from 2 weeks ago den probably I will join la. Don’t know if it’s true or not. When you wanna loose weight, usually at the beginning will have drastic change. After that, it will slow down. True ah? 

Those who are joining, GOOD LUCK! Those who are not joining, don't tempt them with nice food k? :P

Sabak Bernam, Selangor

I am a KL city girl. All my life I never had the chance to know what is it like to go back hometown during Chinese New Year. This year I had a chance to make a trip to Sabak Bernam.

Once we arrive, there were prayers. If I didn't remember wrongly, that day was to Pai Tian Kong.  

Lighting up the candles and josticks. 

Looking at it, it looks like a sea. It's actually not. This is just a river. 


This was my first time seeing people letting go Sky Lantern (Kong Ming Lantern)

Writing down all the wishes... ^^

Breakfast! Everything tastes damn awesome! 

After lazing around in the house whole afternoon and also not to miss out their mahjong session, they decided to make a trip to Sekinchan!

It was not that hot and really windy! You know Outbound Love? This was the beach they came and film. :D

Wrecked Sampan... 

Kite! It looks like chasing after the moon!

Bye bye Sekinchan! 

After that we went back, and have our dinner. It was steamboat! I super love steamboat! After makan, we hang around and then went to sleep. 

The next day... 

We went and catch baby crabbies! SO CUTE!!! 

After we rest a while, we made our move back to KL. 

This is how I spent my time in a kampung. LoL...

The experience was not bad at all. It was really relaxing and definitely will come again. Awesome way to get away from the hectic, boring, filled with buildings KL.
