prayer answered

I haven't updated for so long! Oh gosh! Yes, life had been pretty chaotic since I left for Singapore. 

My trip was pretty decent, I did not manage to go to Universal Studios but there were some serious shopping and walking, till my legs nearly died! Haha! I also made some big decisions when I was there. So I have decided to move to Singapore to study and work. Looking back, I know I have whined about life, trying to get away and doing something I deserve, and now, it seems like my prayer has been answered. I feel very blessed for my prayer being answered. I have not been a very good person but I worked my arse off for the past 6 years to get to where I am today. So I guess it is about being at the right place at the right time with the right people, but at the end of the day, it is still up to us to recognize these traits!

Anyone who knows me well enough would have known that I always wanted to get away from where I am. Not trying to get away from my family or friends, but to have a bigger opportunity awaiting for me out there.  Remaining here in Brunei, I will always be restricted to what I love to do, people who grew up in Brunei and holding a green identity card can understand me. I never complained much outfront because I am very lucky to get jobs but deep down in my heart, do you think that I am not envious of my other friends who get much decent jobs, with obviously better pays?

For the past month I had been keeping myself busy with so much things going on in my head - ticketing, college enrollment, resignation, things to bring & etc. Yes, I am an extreme planner! Haha! Because I believe those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Oh well, despite all plannings, there are barriers once in a while, hence I have to replan my things. Not forgetting my exams which took place earlier this month. I only began my revision about a week before my exams. Prior to that, I did not have the motivation at all! Trust me, it is not cool at all to do last minute studying! I sat for my law and performance management papers. I do not dare to comment whether I did well or not, but seriously I hope I will pass, as I do not wish to go through the same notes again! Sweat! Results will only be out on 22 February 2011. Aah~ that will be a long wait!

At the meantime, I sincerely welcome my beloved godson to the world. He was born on 12 December 2010! I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. After that, every time I saw him, he will either be busy breastfeeding or sleeping! So, I guess the next time I see him next year, he will be all giggly! Awww~ so cute!

So I will be moving to a whole new environment soon, tentatively in 2 weeks' time! Wow... seriously? There are mixed feelings though. Excited and happy because I am about to have a new life, heavy in heart because I will be away from my family, my darling niece and nephew, my godson, my room and my car!! I miss my Hayden and Shane all the time even though they are only 2hrs drive away, and sometimes they are being too noisy, so imagine a 2hrs flight away? They will always be asking my parents where am I when my parents visit them! I was hugging my niece goodbye the other day, my heart was heavy! I know I still have 2 weeks to spend with my family but it is inevitable that I will miss them so dearly, esp Hayden and Shane, they just grow up so fast! And Shane will be in Year 1 next year and Hayden will be in Kindergarten! I guess I will miss all these special moments!

It is all for the best! Miss you all! Love!

P.S. Will be home for Chinese New Year! Hooray!!!

Just Because

I am tired. I read back to my previous post and I wonder whether I am happy or not. In one of my earlier October post, I said that guilt is chomping me from within because I felt that I have not been a good girl friend. So now I wonder whether the problem lies with me or with him?

If I do not ask how his day was, he will say that I do not ask him how it went. 
If I ask him, he will tell me that he does not feel like talking about it. 
So, am I supposed to ask him or just keep mum about it?

I told him about my cancellation of hotel booking in Singapore. He said that it is better that I do not update him anymore.
But when I made my first booking in Balesteir, he asked me why I never consulted him before making a reservation.
So, am I supposed to tell him everything or not?

Last year I told him I wanted to go to Philippines in Oct, he told me it will be rainy season and Philippines is not a very safe place. 
When I was sitting for my June papers, I told him I needed a good break after my exams. He said he will bring me to some where off Bintulu, which never happened, if you need to know. I checked out this place - Borneo Rainforest, about an hour drive from Miri and suggested to him, but he said that for sure I cannot stand the mosquitoes there.
I told him I want to go to Langkawi and Penang. He asked me why? For sure I will not enjoy my time in Langkawi because it will be very crowded and in addition to that, Penang food is not good. 
I told him I want to go to Bali - he gave me a funny look. He must have commented something bad about it too, which I have forgotten.
I told him a friend of mine is going to Taiwan soon, he said it is the rainy season. 
He then finally said it to me, if I wish to go traveling, I should just go with my sisters. With the reason being that maybe he is too old for this, though he enjoyed traveling when he was younger. 
He said that it is up to me to choose the place to eat, since it will be a belated birthday dinner with me, so I told him that I want crab from Miri. He paused for a moment, and nodded. 

I am always driving around getting him lunch and/or dinner, regardless of the weather and of my health condition. 
We are forever eating in front of the television. Normally he will finish his food faster than me, he will light up his cigarette in front of me, while I am still eating my food. 
I am forever the one preparing him hot drinks, cold drinks and whatsoever. 

He always tells me that he wants to send me off or pick me up whenever I am going abroad, I fell for this trap countless time, because I know that he will not do it. Always something has to come up. So my trip to Singapore next week, I never expect him to do it, so I never ask him. That was why I chose flight from BSB instead of from Miri. He then tries to set up the same ol' trap for me to jump in again. 

He knows very well that my flight will only reach the LCCT in KL, which is not the same as KLIA, which has Burger King. He actually told me to take a bus, cab or public transport to go to KLIA to buy him some burgers from Burger King, since my flight from KL to Brunei will only leave at 1.30pm. 

I am really tired of all these. I am being treated like a dirt, scumbag, doing all the things I do not like and yet I do not get appreciated. In addition to all the things I have done above, I actually drove all the way to SPARK just to submit HIS job application form during lunch. He compensated me by cooking curry chicken for dinner, which he was showing me his face just cuz he could not reach me earlier, when I was home on the phone with an ex-colleague for half an hour. I did ask him repeatedly whether he was tired during the day or not, he said no and in the end, he gave me this crap. 
Do I deserve this? 

Why is that when he goes back to Singapore, he can drive his wife (ex-wife?) and kid to KL without complaining of being tired? While he can just tick off just at the slightest thing I do - it could be just a wrong way of conveying the message in my head, something I am not able to do. My heart feels so drop dead cold. I am forever making the effort to go over to his place, and hoping there will be this day when he will introduce me to his parents or godmother, at least. But it never happened. He never went to my house to meet my parents. 

When I see Emily & Andrew being together, I am envious because I do not get spoilt like that. I did not go through the lovey-dovey stage like them. I want that. I am just a 25 years old lady after all. I want to go somewhere with him where we can relax and have fun. But it seems like it will never happen. 

Eating out with me is as if it is a biggest dread for him. We do not even eat in KB, unless it is in a remote place, and late at night. But with his colleagues, he can just join them every lunch and every tea break. 

Deep down, I know he is not the right guy for me. Perhaps I am scared of being alone. I want to walk away from this so-called relationship, I really want to. Just because I am tired.

A Day Came & Gone

Happy Belated Birthday to me. It has almost been a week since I have turned 25! Okay, the picture says 50, but personally, I think that this cake is too glam for a 50-yo lady, but she may have that special preference, you never know. However I personally would not mind. Recently I have this fetish on pink: I have a pink LG Lollipop, pink boots ordered from G-market and I want a pink cake too. But it did not come. It just came and gone just as another day. I was dreading for it to come by because it made me feel kinda old (imagine... 25...), it is indicating that I have lived a quarter of a century! Yikes! 

I did not do much on that day, however I received a lot of greetings & blessings from Facebook friends, a couple of friends from Australia. Perhaps it is the age thing, I only received 2 gifts this year: a lovely card from an MIA friend in Australia, so she is not so MIA after all and a practical gift, a bag hanger from a close friend. All the greetings put a smile across my face the whole day, while I just sat in front of the TV and spent my whole afternoon and night. 

So another week came and gone by, I have not managed to do any of my revision as well. Ouch. I did touch my notes to refresh my memory for about one hour, in the midst of gastric pain. I suffered a terrible gastric pain for the past 2-3 days, and I finally went to the clinic to get some medication yesterday. The doctor told me that I am not supposed to take any tea, chocolate drink, spicy food & acidic food. She must be kidding right?  That must be the saddest news. I did not ask whether that would be a permanent thing or a temporary stop, I guess I can try after the current gastric pain goes off. Some people just never learn their lessons eh. 

I went to my boss' house last night for dinner to celebrate her achievement in getting some award from the Sultan earlier this week. I was the one who ordered the food with the caterer, and that was before the massive gastric evil came to me, hence most of the food were spicy. Oh yes, I love spicy. 

There were:
~ Vegetarian spring roll & deep fried chicken wanton as appetizer. Plus home made potato salad too.
~ Fried rice as the staple food.
~ Oven roasted whole lamb leg
~ Green curry chicken
~ Deep fried fish fillet with mango
~ Mixed vegetables
~ Oreo cheesecake, Tiramisu in cup & fruit tarts as dessert
~ Beverage: fruit punch, red wine, beer & brandy! (Heaven? Yes...)

There I was, not supposed to take any food which may upset my stomach but I still took a little portion of all the food listed above, and that includes the beverage too. Two of my colleagues and I stayed back after everyone has left, talking to my boss while savouring her alcohol supply. 

So we talked about Lawas, Sarawak where one of a colleague is from, which led to Lawas Hot Spring. My colleague mentioned that to get to the hot spring, a 4WD will be needed, because the roads there are mainly meant for trucks carrying timber. 

I asked, "Then what was the point of building a hot spring there, when they are not intending to fix the road?"
Suddenly I find eyes looking at me... my boss said, "They didn't built it there, it's out of nature..."

Okay... that was a little embarrassing! Haha... because I remember the Poring Hot Spring in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah has all these cemented bath with pipes and mini hill to turn it into a tourist attraction. No worries, I was never really good with Geography anyway! 

7 days countdown for me to go to Singapore! I know... I know... I should be revising! But still very excited about visiting Singapore, not about the shopping, but more about R&R... not forgetting food and Universal Studios! I hope my next R&R will be in Korea by next May (that means, savings!!) and Langkawi & Penang by next October... 

Till then, take care everyone. xoxo...

Mode: Complicated

Recently I am suffering from a lot of complications, as in emotional wise. I guess the exam stress is haunting me again, I am back to where I was in May - June 2010. 

My exams is less than 2 months away. I want to do well for it, and I know I should start a study plan on it, slack less and work harder. But each time I reach home after work, I will feel tired. If I managed to open the books, I will feel like running away. If I fell asleep when I was supposed to do my revision, I will feel extremely guilty and I will keep reminding myself that I should revise that night but in the end the whole cycle repeats itself. 

On the other hand, I am pretty excited about my Singapore trip. The trip was never meant to be a relaxing trip at the first place. Just because I screwed up my law paper, I have to give up on the revision class in Singapore. But still, I am pretty excited... from hotel reservation to the budget, relaxing, Universal Studios and etc... I have not managed to have a getaway for quite a while, especially since I needed one badly since my last June exams.

I have had enough fun over the last weekend from Emily's birthday party, but I am seriously having trouble disciplining myself to study, to think that "work harder now and play later". Do I think that I can get away with it? 

To make life more complex, viewing from a bad side; to have a nice ice cream topping on my apple pie, viewing from a good side - I cannot get a guy out of my head. This is completely crazy. I do not even know him well enough but I like him enough to make me want to know him better. Screw those people who always say that girls shouldn't make the first move and crap, because in a way I am "listening" to this kind of advices. 

I want to know him better but I think he does not seem keen... so I am backing away a little... because of my pride, I do not wish to be too pushy. Maybe, I am just thinking too much... Should I wait for God to make his arrangement or decision... Like, if it is meant to be, some day we will be together & etc... *rolled eyes*

Really... in a confused state... do not like this at all... whatever test you are trying to put me through, you know I will survive through it but c'mon, just let it pass sooner.

The Hunt for...

In addition to my previous post, I am suffering from toothache too. Hence I basically lost my appetite to eat, but I bought two bars of Cadbury chocolates. They're still sitting soundly in my fridge. I do not have to worry about big "rats" since my younger sister isn't home! Yes, she has the tendency to eat my stuff, if they lie around too long unattended. While savoring my things, she can take a picture of the precise moment using my camera, and later denying that she has anything to do with it (note: photo still not deleted from the camera).

My toothache... I still haven't been to the dentist to get it checked out. It is quite a pain cuz my gum around the wisdom teeth is swelling, making eating troublesome. So these few days I have been eating quite a lot of porridge.

Normally I'll only get the HK Style Porridge from our local restaurant, Wywy. It consists of small cuts of chicken breast, two fried wanton (meat dumplings - chicken), one mussel, a few cuts of century eggs (the preparer will only add them in as and when they like) and a generous amount of shredded carrots & gingers!! I love this porridge, it is quite delicious if not for the gingers getting in the way of my savoring moment, and not forgetting the fried garlic too!! Why do they like to put the fried garlic in? I had to remove them one by one. Price? It costs BND 3.50 - for the quantity and quality as mentioned, it is quite worth it.

Last night I discovered another place, Tai Hua Restaurant along Jalan Pretty. They are selling quite a variety of porridge too. Don't get me wrong, Wywy has a variety too but so far I have only tried their HK Style Porridge. So last night I tried TH's Minced Pork with century egg porridge. Food is good, portion was more than I could finish which could be due to my loss of appetite. Price was B$ 3.00. Downside: It's fine if you dine in, but if you opt to take away, they'll wrap it in a clear plastic bag (note: not even some kind of white foam bowl like what Wywy would do).

Then again, I am not a very fussy eater. So I went back to them again to order Seafood Porridge during lunch today! It's good!! Fair amount of fish fillet, prawns, squids... I was in heaven. I didn't ask to add in century egg because I brought 1 century egg from home and added in myself. Save me B$1.00! Haha. Actual pricing for seafood porridge is B$3.00. Portion was same as the minced pork porridge with century egg!

If I still do  not have the appetite to eat anything solid for dinner later, I will be going for their fish porridge. Oh gosh~ how I miss the days when I had fish porridge at the hawker centers nearby Singapore HDB flats! Cheap and crazily good! I won't mind going there to have breakfast everyday! And not forgetting, the fish porridge Simon brought me to when we were in KK two years back! Normally I would've avoided anything fishy, like fish soup (with the exception to the ones my dad make), but that porridge was really good. Too bad my stomach only had enough space for one bowl.

Looks like I have already made up my mind what to have for dinner later. Cheers ^^

guilt chomping from within

I have been sick since last week. 7days - if I must specify the number of days. It started off with a weird numbness on my chest when I was in the gym on Friday evening. Being sick was the last thing in my mind, I thought I was just out of breathe on the thread mill. The virus advanced itself on Saturday and by night time, my body felt so heavy that I just had to hit the bed early after taking some medications left over from previous doctor visits. My fever was on and off, cough getting more severe as each day passed. 

I went back to work on Monday, still hit the gym on the same evening but it was one heck of a long day for me. The evil grumpy witch within me kept lashing out at whoever was in my way, or did the slightest thing to annoy me. The heaviness made me feel like perhaps crying will relieve all the pain inside. But no... I didn't shed a tear. I invited Uncle for dinner at Buc's because I really need a time out, to have a peace of mind. On the other hand, he kept reminding me that he had a lot of work to be done, and he had a long day, yadee yadaa... but why didn't he just say so when I offered him dinner at the first place? It's okay, I managed to get my way. 

I had Black Pepper Chicken Chop served with mashed potatoes, grilled corn on cob & several pieces of green cuts. Uncle had Rack of Lamb with Black Pepper sauce. His side dishes are basically the same as mine. We had Baked Oysters as appetizer. They were finger licking good. Would've been better if the oysters didn't shrink so much during the baking process. 

Tuesday came by = deadline for my work to be completed. Body status = more sick than ever!!
I went to work still, finished off all my work by 11am and rushed to the doctors. I was attended at this "Flu Clinic" whereby the doctor looked like he couldn't care less. He gave me some cough syrup and paracetamol. I took the rest of the day off, spent them sleeping. I really slept a lot throughout all these time. 

Wednesday came, body status = still feverish!!
I surrendered, I couldn't go to work at all in the morning. My head felt as if a train ran over it. I looked for my mom and told her to "gua sa" for me. Normally one is supposed to have full good rest after it, but my mom insisted on waking me up at exactly 1hour later so that I can send her to the Immigration office, wait for her and send her back to her shop! It really annoyed the eff out of me. I went back to work in the afternoon, though my boss claimed that I looked pale, and should go home and rest. I stayed till 5pm. Went to the private clinic after work and boy, that doc sure gives miracle medications. I took them and retired before 9pm, woke up this morning feeling really good. My cough is still there, but I felt much more better compared to yesterday. 

Today came, body status = not too bad but guilt is chomping me down inside! Why?
I threw tantrums at Uncle during lunch earlier. Because I got irritated for the fact that I still have to run around grabbing lunch while being sick, and the people on the road were driving like snails! When I reached his place, I did not even bother asking about his day and etc. I guess I am really self-centered. Apparently he had a busy day at work because there was an incident. Rather than being the dotting girlfriend I should be, I gave this crap to him. I am always trying to work on this but always failed! Why?

Today received a parcel from G-market Singapore, more than half of the items in this parcel do not belong to me and some of them were intended to be gifts to my friends, so I will not be disclosing what I bought! Haha.

Hope that I will get well soon and that my remaining parcels will come to me asap! :D
**Busy weekend ahead**

Perfume: a great gift or no-no?

Dear all,

Yes I noticed that I have disappeared for quite some time. Have been trying to catch up with my proper work and I am still getting over the fact that I failed one of my ACCA papers in the June 10 sitting. It was the Law paper. So I will be retaking it, on top of another paper, in Dec 10, and I haven't started any revision so far. Anyhow, don't have to wish me luck because I believe luck will only happen when there is sufficient preparation. 

I had F5 classes over the last weekend of August & I swear it totally drained my energy. The class was okay but the intensive hours of paying attention in class, which was followed by driving on the road for about 1.5hrs. I was only fully recharged after a week. And this is going to happen again this weekend. I am still thinking what I should do to make myself less tired. Age is really catching up. Haha! 
Back to the topic, I know a lot of people would like to give others perfume as a birthday gift. Honestly, do you know what kind of smell the other person loves or loathes? 

So far I have received 4 bottle of perfumes as follows. They are arranged in the order I received them:
Davidoff Echo

Davidoff Cool Water Wave
Armani Code
Dior Addict 2
First three perfumes were given to me as my birthday gifts, not the same year of course. I am grateful to receive them as a gift, as perfumes are not cheap. But this is where the problem lies, you are grateful to receive such presents but the scent is what the person who offers the gift likes, not you yourself. For sure they will not get you something which makes you feel like throwing up whenever you dabbed on them for the day. You know it comes from their heart, when they bought it for you, they thought of you, thinking that it suits your personality. But deep down in your heart, you will know immediately whether you like the scent or not. The scent may be bearable but it lacks the kick, the excitement, the confidence generated from deep within when you wear it. To be honest, I have seen friends who use the perfume given to her as a gift to spray on her shoes / heels. I will never do that because everything given to me is precious to me, even if it lacks the Omph! 

Personally I like scent which is vibrant, lively and has a hint of men's musky smell, like my all time favorite CK One. I have fallen in love with Dior Addict 2 for a long while, I think it has definitely been more than 12 months and recently, someone who owed me a gift (very much long overdue, btw) was going overseas, and she asked me what perfume I would like. See, this is the trick, if you want to get a perfume for someone, always ask for any preferences. So I told her to get me Dior Addict 2, complete with a Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream.

(The ice cream is out of the topic but it is making me drool again!Trust me, I got both the perfume & ice cream in the end...)

When I received the Dior Addict 2, I was overwhelmed with happiness, and whenever I wear it, I can feel happiness from deep within. Even if I am just sitting behind my workstation, being alone & idle, when I smell my wrist, I will grin from ear to ear. This is the level of impact your favorite perfume has on you & your day. 

Recently, I fell in love with this:
A Scent by Issey Miyake
Do I have to wait for another 12 months to have this sent to my doorstep? Haha. Honestly, I rather splurge on clothes and food, rather than perfume. At the moment of fidgeting in the store, I will always tell myself I have other perfumes sitting in my cabinet and I can always come back and get it. 

So next time before you buy a perfume for your friend or other half, it's better to ask first. Although you may have diminished the "mystery" but imagine how loved the person will feel while using his/her favorite perfume, it is all worth the trouble. 

Love. Eid Mubarak to all Muslim friends out there. Enjoy spending quality time with your loved ones. 

(I actually started this post about a week back but last week was a total crazy week for me, crazy load of work and had to help out with my mom in her shop after work. Was totally in sleep deprived mode.>

I started having loves towards raccoons since I watched Pocahontas way back in 1996, or was it earlier? Seems like all my memories are stucked in 1996. Haha! Then all these went to the back of my head until I watched Furry Vengeance, starring Brendan Fraser & Brooke Shields, last night. If you need a laugh or an animal lover, you can watch this movie. It's lovely - all hail to raccoon & skunks!

So here are some pictures of raccoons to be shared with you guys below. Apparently raccoons are wild, well.. they do not look cute when they snarl. I want to take a picture with raccoon some day. But they do not have them in Singapore zoo, only lemurs. 

Bleh.... how can it be so cute?

The last time I was in the Singapore zoo. Okay that was my first time in any zoo located on this planet, I even dragged my sisters to the Jurong Bird Park and they complaint non stop. Haha! Then we were in this enclosed area in the zoo where we can walk into and they had lemurs walking around.. There was this all-black Lemur walking towards our way & we said "Oh... so cute *camera snapping*..." then out of the blue it snarled at us... I think we practically screamed and ran for our lives! So unglam... 
Some more information on raccoons can be found on Wikipedia.

I posted this comment about wishing to take pictures with raccoons and Edwin K suggested me to make a girl do thick make up & make her cry. Then I'll take a quick snap of it. Haha. I think it's really feasible. Shall try it out some day... Who wants to be my volunteer? 

Till the next time, take care. *Cough cough* yes... I'm sick now... 

P.S. Found this cool picture on Flickr, credits to sakuranym:

I just received my new toys after waiting since end of June, but the long wait has been paid off. I don't exactly know the name of the lens, they tend to come with really hard-to-remember names.Ok, just wait while I browse through the internet for the names. Ok, they are Wondereye Pink (left, but the bottle said EOS right? :confused:) & Geo Angel Grey (Right).

I couldn't wait to try them on after Jen Frmheadtotoe had a review on her pink lenses. So I took good rest the night before, and made the effort to wake up earlier the next morning. Ok, I have only used pink lenses so far, haven't tried on the grey ones yet. This is the problem you may get when you get more than 1 pair of circle lens at once. Or... maybe not, I just want to use my lenses wisely ;)

So I got my lens from this lady from Facebook. I am pretty impressed with the product and the service, so I placed order for the Winter Barbie series. Then all of a sudden you notice so many on Facebook selling lenses, one cheaper than the other. So you're now stuck with choices. As for Lens Shop, I must say that I love her service, and she only requires 50% deposit. Wow.

So here is one of the many shots: 

The colour is only obvious when you are under the sun. Else, it'll blend in to your eye colour, in my case, it did and gave a hazel looking colour. The other hazel looking picture is in my phone, so got to wait till I transfer it to my picture. 

The circle lens which I bought are not too dramatic as I've tried once with the Freshkon ones, I looked like a lizard, as per Emily. That time was an accident, I bought a shade of brown too light. I am trying to refrain myself from getting those again cuz my boss seemed to have a thing about super big & black iris. She once commented about this girl working in the local bank used the dolly eye, must be the super black series and she doesn't really like it. I am not trying to please her but I just want to get to wear my lens to work :)

I know there are reports commenting that circle lens will lead to blindness but really, if you use them in moderation, and be wary of your hygiene, you should not worry. Though I love my pink lens to bits and pieces now, I am now using my glasses looking like a nerd. Hehe.

Have you noticed the watermark on my pictures? Ok I know all my watermarks look different in all my posts :lol: but I wanted to point out the font I was using. It's called Arabic One Night Stand. The name sounds so kinky. :lol: If you're interested, you can get it from this site

Today has not been the greatest day of all but right now I am sitting here spending some personal time, it's not too bad too. Just had my dinner in our local restaurant, WYWY. The food are really good today, either it is because I skipped lunch earlier or because everyone is going for the buffet for breaking fast, and I ordered ala carte, so service is quick and food is good. Perhaps only locals understand what I am having here: Kolo meehoon with wanton & Sea Coconut de Longan. Yummy <3

Till my next update, take care & have a brilliant weekend ahead. Love.

Imagine: *fighting cats*

Happy Ramadhan to all my Muslim friends & families. Do not worry, it is not raining in KB, in fact it is a bright sunny day today, perhaps in conjunction with the public holiday today. It is only raining in my world today. Why?

> Because I am working today! Weeee~ *sarcastically*!! Today is a public holiday for all, except me. 
Remembering when I was flying off to KK with Simon & the guys back in Dec 2008, I had some problem with my AirAsia ticket, Alan quoted AirAsia's slogan: "Now everyone can fly... except Nana..." but I managed to get into the flight in the end. =)

> Because I was supposed to begin my ACCA F5 & F9 classes next week, and I only found out yesterday that F9 classes are not confirmed yet because I am the only student who signed up for it. And since I only found out about it yesterday, I cannot take up P2 classes because P2 has already started on 7 Aug 2010! I can only get confirmation whether F9 classes will still be ongoing after the June 2010 results are released (i.e. 23 Aug 2010)

> Because the project which I am working on does not seem to be working out rightly. Perhaps I am targeting at the wrong group of consumers. Maybe I should do some marketing or promotions... In fact, I have not finished uploading all my pictures yet, and that is only for a particular brand. The other brand, I am still awaiting for my supplier to come back from her vacation.

> Because at times it seems to me that having Mr Uncle as my bf is as if I don't have one at all. Okay, I won't drill much into it otherwise I will get emo for the rest of the day.

> Because sometimes I do thing which I have no exact explanation for.
Like yesterday I stayed back in my office after 5pm, till about 6.30pm. When I was warming up a car, I saw some "theft" going on. I quoted them cuz I cannot confirm whether it is theft or collusion happening within the company. Mr Uncle told me I should not get too upset over it cuz it may not be true, but then I still feel that perhaps I could have done something? Intervening, perhaps? 

I will be meeting up with dear Jacinta for lunch. We will be having duck rice, it has definitely been a while since I last had duck rice. Perhaps I will take a snapshot of it. 

Hope the day will get better as the hours pass by. What shall I do tonight? Hopefully mom comes home with my lenses! Pink & gray... <3 and I shall continue with my Beethoven Virus. 

xoxo, Na.

BBQ @ LLRC 20100808

Last Sunday my colleague organized a BBQ held at LLRC beach for a get together before the fasting month. It was a good bonding time with me & my colleagues. Although I did not eat much but I enjoyed myself, it was a sunny day with clear sky. There were lots of big trees as shades, so no worries about getting too warm. Hey, LLRC swimming pool is only a walking distance away, just in case you need a quick rinse after playing by the beach. They have toilets for you to change into clean clothes before you head home. Don't tell anyone you learn it from me. 

The Food:

The Beach:

The Co-operation :)
1. The recreational club is only a 5min walk away, so you can get nice chilly drinks to refresh yourself or dine in Kate's Catering over there, if you don't like BBQ-ed food.
2. What can I say... you can either enjoy playing in the sea or in the pool in the club. There's a toilet where you can clean yourself.
3. The trees there are huge. No need to worry about being fried under the sun at 12pm.
4. It is a pretty clean place.

1. Sand getting into the food. In my case, the sausage i ate was sandy.
2. Sand flies! I got bitten twice!! Their scars tend to stay for a long time, I am not sure what the remedy is, mosquito repellent perhaps? Heard from Mr Uncle that you just have to use the sand beach to rub all over your feet and the culprit will leave you alone. Try it and let me know.

So if you're planning a weekend getaway with your friends & family, you can check out this place. Don't forget your sunblock!

to feel what it is like

This is my first entry and I will do an introduction about myself. I have always wanted to have a proper blog but never had the inspiration. If you need to know, I just got this inspiration on what I should blog about when I was in my shower. =)

First off, this is Yuna from Brunei. I am turning 25 this year and I earn my bucks by crunching numbers. That's right, I am an accounts supervisor. Not an accountant just yet as I am still earning my qualifications. So I am a part time student too. So early Junes and Decembers will be the busiest time for me as I will be preparing for my exams. Hopefully it'll only be so for the next 2-3 years.

Hobby... this is a little difficult as I love anything under the sun. So this will be more of a combination of my hobbies, likes and dislikes. I bake. I love K-pop, that include certain dramas. I have very few close friends but they are very dear to me. I love food and I tend to have very bad cravings. A friend commented that I am a Facebook addict but I think I am still alright. I am learning how to be use make up better.

So I will not be specifically blogging about a certain thing under the sun, it could be really random. Perhaps a movie or drama I just watched, life inspiration, food I just baked (which I have not done in ages), products which I just tried on, restaurants which I just tried out, or even just a random update on my day.

I hope it will turn out all good and I seriously hope that I will have the time to update more often. To share bits and pieces under the sky with the rest of you.

Till then, Love.
