Instant Mood Lifters

Sometimes all I need me is some HAPPY. What do you do when your mood is down and you know you need to get it up again ASAP? My emotions has been on a rollercoaster ride lately, not sure why but naturally I blame it on PMS. Mostly lol. That is like the best excuse for me when I have my mood swings in front of 자기야. Kesian him I know.

So before I throw my princessey tantrums at just about anybody, I will try with all my might to calm my inner storm down first. I will try with upbeat, positive songs. And if that fails, I guess my next best alternative is probably some alot of chocolates? Hehe.

Just wanna share some songs which can lift up my mood almost instantaneously and I hope they will do wonders to yours too, if you ever need it of course. Enjoy :)

Pharrell Williams- Happy (My latest addiction!)

BJ Thomas - Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head (Oldies like this does the trick for me)

Barry Manilow - Can't Smile Without You (more oldies hehe)

Bobby McFerrin - Don't Worry Be Happy (this is perfect, trust me)

Nat King Cole - L-O-V-E

Anthony Neely - Wake Up (a mixture of English and Chinese lyrics, great lyrics)

Last but not least, a new lift-me-up song I have just heard over the radio today. Love it. Gonna make this my new addiction soon haha.

Peter Marsh - Stop The Clock

Go be HAPPY!

Till then, x!

Twelve Cupcakes And A Double Movie Date

Been quite some time since I have been on a real date with 자기야, probably because we are basically dating everyday considering the fact that we work together. And while it may seem a good thing to be able to see your boyfriend everyday, better than boyfriends whose whereabouts are often unknown (yes, I have dated someone like that), it does have its downside also.

We got lazy :( Lazy to plan for date nights. Lazy to be oh-so-romantic. It has even become hard for us to decide on what to eat. Sigh. What's worse, dates have become rather expensive these days. Even a simple breakfast of eggs and toast can cost up to MYR20 :(

But luck got on my side one night when out of boringness, I stumbled upon the Maxis Rewards app again in my phone. Why again? Coz I had it in my phone for a while now ever since Maxis sent an email notifying me about this app. And I had used it to redeem two Buy One Free One TGV Cinemas movie tickets before this.

 Maxis Rewards

Well.. even though Maxis' data connection sucks once in awhile and I have made several complaints through Twitter, undeniably the deals in this app has really helped me in saving quite a bit. And through the night, I have downloaded quite a few passes. But of course I wouldn't missed out the TGV movie tickets deal again since its promo end date is 31st March. Hehe.

Two movies, two persons for the price of MYR20 only. On weekends somemore. Never mind that we were unable to snuggle on a couple seat like we usually do :P Normally a standard seat ticket alone will cost MYR16 each. So we managed to save MYR44 on movie tickets :D

Started off with the movie Need For Speed, which was all about cars, speed and races as deduced from the movie title itself. Movie plot was pretty predictable, hence other than admiring those beautiful and powerful cars, nothing much to shout about for me except that I've learnt of some new models of Ferrari and Lamborghini that are different from the ones I usually see on the street. And I love the white Hummer! 자기야 said it appeared just to be banged. Lol. I m so goin to own one one day. Definitely.

As for 300: Rise Of An Empire, only one word to describe: VIOLENT. But somehow as violent as it was, I seriously believed the movie was too violent until the extent that my fear was nowhere to be found during the whole movie. Nevertheless, I was in awe of the CGI that was considerably flawless and truly admirable. Both movies are some of 자기야's favourite genres hence he should have more valid comments than me. Lol.

And.. I finally got to buy Jamie Teo and Daniel Ong's Twelve Cupcakes! Been following their Twitter regularly, knew that they were expandin to Malaysia but not sure when and where until I first saw it at Sunway Pyramid. Hesitated and ended up not buyin. Saw another branch again at One Utama and didn't buy it too. Until this time, finally bought it with Maxis Rewards deal; Buy Two Free One. So three cupcakes for the price of MYR12 :)

 Twelve Cupcakes

Pretty Much? 
Top: Cookies and Cream; Middle: Red Velvet; Bottom: Chocolate Chocolate

Instagrammed the pic and also tagged Jamie and Dan, was so surprised when Jamie replied. Nice to know that she's friendly :) And the cupcakes are delish! The cakes were so soft and when combined with the topping, the sweetness was just nice. Perfect for me, as I m not someone who fancy really sweet stuff. Some other cupcakes I had tried before this were really sweet.

So in between the movies, we walk walk around, bought the cupcakes and also Juice Works. Maxis Rewards also have this promo for Juice Works: buy any drink of Power size and get a Midi size Lychee Cooler for free. Of course we wouldn't let go of this awesome deal, haha.

And then, we saw this.

Vintage Ear Hook!

Fell in love almost immediately but guess what, I didn't buy. Not upon seeing it. It was only after 300 ended before 자기야 dragged me back to the same shop as it was closing and bought it for me. He said it would be my belated White Day pressie. Aww.. how sweet. Hehe.

Wore it out the next day and I love love it!

And this summed up my weekend date :D Thank you 자기야 for being so patient with me and pamperin me as always. Days automatically become brighter when you are with me.

Love you

From Friend to Stranger

I m currently feelin a lil upset now. I wish I can find out what happened to my friendship with you but I just cannot seem to fathom the gap now, nor can I understand the difference in our relationship right now.

It has since been for four years that we are friends, so why only now we notice the differences? Is it then considered irreconcilable? Is it because of me gettin attached? I still remembered when you said he's not good enough for me. You judged before you even tried to understand. I was so pissed back then but I let it go. Then again, I was in and out of relationships the entire four years we are friends. So that cannot be the reason already right?

So is it then because of your chosen lifestyle? That differ from mine and all traditional views? I m not sure what to think anymore. If it was not because of your hypocrisy, we might still be able to save this. We might still be able to go back to the past. Though not entirely the same but at least, we can still maintain the closeness.

If only you have been honest from the start.

If only.

Nails Nails Nails

Been addicted to DIY manicure for a few months now, especially since nail stickers are readily available, almost everywhere. Being the thrifty (read: cheapskate) person that I m, I got all my nail stickers from pasar malam lol; MYR10 for 3 wtf. Quality is admittedly shitty but I don't mind though coz I don't believe in buyin expensive ones that I will eventually get bored of. Hence I'd rather buy cheaper versions so I can change to different ones anytime I like and also can save money in the process. WIN-WIN for me haha.

First nail sticker that I have applied during Chinese New Year :)

Pastel colours!

The quality of this particular one is the worst among all though I really loved the design ><

Last but not least, my own DIY manicure! Did this without much effort, wanted to actually do the floral one I saw on Pinterest but ultimately failed haha. So I came up with this design! Sorry about the heart, I know that it is very out of shape lol.

Still got two more nail stickers left in my collection. Will post them up after I have applied them kay? And definitely will buy more as I love how easily I can apply them and have pretty nails in no time :D

Till then, x!

Origami Flowers

Goin to 자기야's younger sis's convocation next week. And as everyone knows, just like V-Day and Mother's Day, flowers' prices will be hiked up like nobody's business. So instead of buyin a bouquet for her, I have decided to unleash my inner creativity and love for origami and make her one! :D

Armed with packets of beautiful origami papers from Daiso, fake stems/accessories from Art Friend and various Youtube tutorials, I m proud to show off my creation at first attempt. And I really really love it! All in all, it took me almost one night and uncountable times kena burned. Well I guess, I will still do this again. Hehe.

Got origami butterflies somemore

Before cutting off the additional 'stems'

Drew on a blank brown paper bag to put my gift into it

Pretty? Let's just hope she likes them too!

Till then, x!

Love You 1314 ♥

Today is the 1st of March 2014 which is equivalent to 1.3.14, which in Chinese language it will be loosely translated to 一生一世 due to its similar sounds (homophone). According to my beloved Google Translate, 一生一世 is translated to English as 'for life'. So this 1314 is often seen as an auspicious combination of numbers, for the Chinese believe that it will bring good omen in blessing a relationship to last a lifetime.

I m not so much of a pantang (superstitious) person and neither is 자기야 therefore you can trust me when I said I totally forgotten about this date as well as the supposedly lucky meaning behind it. The only time I took notice of this date was when Windi told me she had wanted to hold her wedding on this day. And that was in 2012. So how would I remember?

Woke up a lil later than usual, it's Saturday c'mon haha. 자기야 went to have his car fixed as he will be headin back to his hometown later on so I was waitin for him to be done so that we can grab lunch together before he goes back.

Was walkin towards his car when he reached. He came out of his car to get me, as though I needed some kind of bodyguard protection when it is really like only  10 steps or so away. He hurriedly walked in front of me, somethin out of his norm. Suspectin nothin though, thought he might be in a hurry to head back home.

Now I m startin to believe that it is the most romantic when it is unexpected. For instance, when I saw this :">

자기야, YUSO sweet?? Even though you'd be leavin me alone later, I hereby forgive you for this. HAHA.

My Love

"The rose that you gave me has faded, and wilted away. But, the love tucked in deep inside remains in my heart forever."

Happy 1314 everyone! 

Till then, x!
