Is it a bad omen or a curse...

Two person called me plump with no reason, via virtual tool.

One called me a human puff, another one called me plump.

Caught me off guard!

Especially who have not met me for a long time, judging me from my photos, it means injustice!!

Anyway, it is just size anyway.

You two... Next time I met you, you have to treat me an expensive meal.

I don't mind being a plump lady. So I will try my best to eat as much as possible when I met you two. I will fast a day before I met you and make you go broke.

Picking up tin can

Yesterday, as early as 7.30am, what I saw was very surprising. Stopping at the traffic light, across a car beside the car I was in, a motorcyclist get off from his bike and ran to the turning road. It turned out that he was aiming for a tin can beside the road. Picking up the tin can in style, rushing back to his bike, crushing it with his feet, throwing the crushed tin can up and catch it with style, and he saw me smiling and laughing at his action. He gave me a smile and salute. He looks like just come back from exercise, with a torn helmet. Not handsome but interesting. Green light! Time to go.

Who would notice a small tin can beside a busy road? When the mind is set on looking out for something, only then we can detect it. Without knowing what we are looking for, it is easy to be out of focus. A tin can is a rubbish, it can also be the source of income. Different mind, different perspective.

Now, who left the tin can on a bush?

Cat's whiskers

Have you heard of 'misai kucing' (direct translation: cat's whisker)? It is a type of herb. It is also known as Java tea.

So it is not whiskers belong to real cat. just a plant.

As you can read it is a herb that is beneficial to our body. 

'It is trusted for many centuries for treating ailments of the kidney, bladder stone, urinary tract infection, liver and bladder problems, diabetes, rheumatism and gout. And, it is also used to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. It is believed to have antiallergic, antihypertensive, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties. Furthermore, it is used as a remedy for arteriosclerosis (capillary and circulatory disorders), kidney stones, diabetes and nephritis.'

Last month, my mum went for blood and urine tests. The test turned out that level of glucose is high. After drinking misai kucing for 2 weeks, my mum went for another test. The level of glucose greatly reduced to normal level.
After I drank it, I noticed that the perimeter of my tummy also reduced. Not bad.

[SK], it is good for you.

Toastmaster speech

I need to prepare my speech for Toastmaster.

It is so hard to come out with a topic, and good beginning.

As kiasu as I can be, I don't wish my speech begin with 'Once upon a time', or 'Today I am going to talk about my hobby'.

I can't write any blog post as long as I have not finish preparing my speech. I need help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Once upon a time, there is a little girl who likes to read. She is special because she only read horror stories. Whenever she looks into your eyes, you can sense the dark vibration that reminds you of the monster in your closet. Remember to lock your door before you sleep. Or else she will come knocking.... Knock!...Knock!...Knock!"

"Good night! Remember to dream of me.....", said the dark girl.

10 Most Annoying type of Blog posted by Chris

10 Most Annoying type of Blog posted by Chris is very interesting. Although I read many version with this topic, his way of expressing his annoy is impressive. Maybe because his post came with examples. 
Lesson to be learn : Examples in essay make it interesting and realistic.

Last month, accidentally I bump into a blog which made me felt I am very noob a.k.a stupid. It is fine to be in love with ourselves. But if.... too much photos of ourselves, posts with no contents, might as well open a flickr account. I still remember the feeling of reading that blog. When I was reading, I felt like as I am saying to myself, "I am noob", "I am noob",  "I am noob", "I am noob", "I am noob", "I am noob", "I am noob".

Law of attraction is important to make our life happier. We attract what we vibe.

*adjusting my vibe*

Actually that blog is very powerful, with a strong hypnotizing power. It is able to convert its reader into whatever she wants. I felt so SMART after reading it.

Suddenly empowered with feeling of self-loving.

Oh, I am so cute.

Don't you feel smarter now?

Kids in love with me - Sunday

Last weekend, went out with a friend for shopping. We end up buying nothing and took nothing home except McD in our stomach. So call window shopping. 

When I was standing at the entrance of a shop, standing and looking at something, someone beside me pat my handbag. It is the little girl who was with her mother, standing there, giving me a sweet smile, as if she knows me. I looked at her mother, maybe I know her mother. Her mother didn't even noticed that she pat my handbag. I gave her a sweet smile, and she and her mother left me standing there in confusion.

At evening, while having dinner at  restaurant, a little boy suddenly stand apposite of me, across the big table, shouting bye to me. No one is behind me and he is looking at me. So I am sure he is saying bye to me. Then his dad suddenly appeared behind him, ushered him to go home.

Those kids makes me wonder maybe there is someone else who looks like me. Or they think I am familiar because I am as cute as Dorami.

or maybe I look like their classmate. :P

Semporna trip July 2010

Disappearance with a reason, and not an excuse.

Last week, I went to Tawau and Semporna with Miri Photographic society. It is my first time to that part of Sabah. When we were in Semporna, we rent boats to have offshore experience. We rent a boat for RM350 a day. When I came back from the trip, I get to know that can actually rent a boat for RM 150 +RM 70 (fuel). If you would like to get the contact, I can get it from my friend. Just contact me by clicking the icon CONTACT.

Although we were near Sipadan and Mabul and many more popular islands, we didn't get to go due to limited time. So near yet so far.... We only get to go to Bintang Biru and Omadal Island. Bintang Biru is very nice place. It is an island during low tide, and is an flooded island during high tide. People who stays at Bintang Biru are from Bajau Laut ethnic.

When we were at Bintang Biru, we saw lifestyle of Bajau Laut. Kids with natural bronze hair, ladies with Bajau's SKII. For those who have not setup a house on the water, stay in a small boat.

In the small boat, they cook and sleep. Accidentally, we saw a mother breastfeeding her baby. Although many of my photographer gang took photo of her nursing, exposing her breasts, I refused to take a photo of her. If I am in her shoes, I won't want my photo to be taken in such pose.

one day, Malaysia remained outdated, when some countries succeeded to establish a nation who lives on floating ground. When the nation came to visit us who still lived on earth ground, I am sure they will have the same feeling like us when we saw community of Bajau Laut. When they saw us breastfeeding babies, they will also want to take photos of the us through our house windows.

I don't want this to happen to me. I believe in karma. If that one day come, I don't want they took photo of me breastfeeding!!!

Cat or dog? - Cat shakes its tail like a dog

This cat is unique. Wonder why?
See the video to know the answer.

Saw it? The cat shake its tail like a dog. So is it a cat or a dog? Or it is a dog in disguise?
Being different is not weird, just unique.

My mother went for it. Remember don't write a big amount of income at the form to get the subsidy. The lady even told me that many 'datin' went for it. So don't be shy and go for it, if you are 40 years old lady, or bring you family members for it. Don't save money for the government.

So beware when taking photos with your friends!

Beware! Beware!

There are many thing to beware of, because nowadays there are many social network. Even if you are very careful when you post your photos online or write anything too personal online, you still need to beware of virtual world.

I am sure all of us have friends, and our friends also have online social network. Even if you don't post it online, your friend may do it for you , without your consent. Everyone have their own rights to take photos, and everyone have their own rights to post their own photos online. Unknowingly, the photos not only contain the camera owner's face, but also owner's friend face.

Recently I joined swimming class with my friend. My friend is an extreme camwhore. Always carrying camera around (asking people) to take photo of herself.

As usual, with her camera, we took a photo with our coach, wearing our swimming suit. Not long after that, she uploaded it to online social networks.
LUCKILY!!! When I took the photo, I covered myself modestly with a towel. IF NOT, I don't know how to face the world!

As Danny said, Less Cloth not necessary SEXY! 

The photo actually is nice, it is suitable posted online because I look modest with the towel. Luckily I didn't listen to her advise to remove the towel and let all see my ........ ahhh malunya (shy).

So beware when taking photos with your friends! And also beware of my camera! Snap snap snap!

Tagged: 8th Photo in my 8th Photo Folder.

When I first tagged by Caroline, I am very curious of what will I find in my photo album.
Instructions of the Tag:
1. Go to your photo files, select the 8th photo folder
2. Select the 8th photo in that folder
3. Post that photo along with the story behind it
4. Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same!

8th photo of my 8th album is the journey of demobilisation from Zafarana Hotel, Red Sea to Baltim, Mediterenean Sea. This photo taken from moving car driving through Port Said, Egypt. Clearly I was trying to shoot ladies crossing the bridge. Want to know the bridge's name? Read the Arabic words on the bridge.

One photo seems like not enough. This tag is all about 8. I guess only 8 photos can satisfy the tagging.

photos. Have fun!

Once I found the photos, I seem have so much to write, might as well try new scripting. This is the process of immobilisation from a project to another project. Finally settling down at the new location.

Is it interesting?

What kind of man will I marry?

After being away from Toastmaster for a while, I am back again. 

In the session of Tabletopic. In this session, topic will be given randomly and had to talk about the topic on the spot for around 2 mins. 
Unluckily, the topic I get was about, 'what kind of man will I marry?'
Should I just show this photo?

Criteria of A boyfriend
-knows how to cook
-Able to bear the expense of my life
- have luxury car
-have superbike
Please email or MMS photos of your cat, luxury car and superbike to me

Of course I didn't show the photo to them. I only said the most important thing is that the man has to be a man. With the current advance technology, you will never know for sure.

Everyone must have their dream spouse in their mind before they go poaching for one. I am not sure about my dream guy. Even if I am sure about my dream guy, I won't write it here down for all to see.

Maybe someone like Harrison Ford (younger version) is my dream guy..

Judging from the word 'dream guy', it is only available in dream. 
In reality, it is hard to pursue perfection, in term of looking for a spouse.
