Confimed.

Sha Lynn is confirmed to be Sha Lynn.

No more thinking that it might be a boy. Sister just sent me a picture of "confirming" that Sha Lynn is a girl and I have no idea how anyone can see and then interpret the picture. I just spent half an hour looking at it and still had no idea what and where to see. But I think I saw Sha Lynn's face partially.

Apparently, she's one kg now and have chubby cheeks. Oh my goshness. I need to see you soon Sha Lynn.

Not gonna post the picture here. Cannot embarass her just yet. Muahaha.

Thank you whoever you are for keeping my sister and her baby in prayer.

Here's to hoping smooth delivery (WITHOUT EPIDURAL) and a fast one too :)

Monday Blues NOT.

Such great feeling going to bed on Sunday knowing that the next day get to sleep till lunch time. Not just any normal lunch.

The Mod-Em Hangout Lunch and Movie!

So, what Monday and what Monday blues?

We waited, walked down the escalator, ate McD, vained with the brand new iPhone5, teared in The Impossible, laughed hysterically, shopped, i love yoo-ed, "spretzel-ed", stalked half japanese hald angmo babies, choo char-ed, starbucks-ed, and monopoly dealed :)

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.







Food tastes better when you're having them with people you love and genuinely care about.

Social Media.

So I opened up the food blog and saw that we have past 20,000 viewers! And we're just days away from the first date ever since we started it. A W E S O M E.

I have to say that the experience of food blogging is one of a kind. It's pretty fun but there are also days when you just want to eat and relax the minute you reach a new place. But no, being one you'll have to take pictures and stuff like that. It's not that it's so annoying that it's a drag. It's not. It's okay for us cos there's two of us doing it. For other food bloggers who goes solo, *salutes*. I don't know where you find your hardworking-ness! :)

Anyways, I did not access into any social media in the weekends because I was away in an encounter weekend with the Big Man. Boy, was it great! And last night a friend popped the question if we can survive not using social media for a week. And without having to think so long, I nodded. I think it's because of the encounter weekend. If not, I would have answered no. 

So yay to me for not being a socialmediaaddict. Haha. 

Last day of my long holiday is about to end. So sad. Gotta start working tomorrow. WHY SO FAST?

Can't wait for Chinese New Year to come. I have missed that time of the season for so long. 

COUNTING DOWN! :D

Blessed One Year.

The best boyfriend isn't the best-looking, the funniest, the strongest or the richest. It's the one that makes sure you know he loves you.

I never knew you would become someone this important in my life. Someone who changed my world, literally. Someone whom when I'm with, I do things that I never thought I would ever do, ever! 

It's crazy. It's weird.
It's funny. It's extreme.
It's insane. It's strange.
It's unpredictable.
It's madness.
It's out of the world.
It's loud. It's full of surprises.
It's you and me.

And I think that kinda describes us and this adventure that we got ourselves into. From the beginning when we first became friends, I thought you were the 'guy best friend' that I'll have for a long long time.

You know that kind where I teach you how to"properly"go after girls (not that you don't know how) and checking girls/boys our together in college's canteen, hear your stories after each dating sessions, cheer loudly in your floorball matches, eat with you when you had no one else to eat with, fill you in on yourcuriosity of Christianity, bring you go church and introduce you to all my friends and say that you're

actually gay, like my gay best friend kind-of-gay.Then one day, everything changed. My life, changed forever. Zillion of thank yous won't do it. All those midnight phone calls I made to you when I couldn't sleep, you being a driver and drive me around whole day, teaching me how to play gin rummy and got me hooked on it, letting me bite on you when I was upset, pressured me to study for exams, cooked (sort of) for me, go for last-minute trip together to Hatyai, taught me be-more-tough-in floorball (I was in a skirt!), introduced Mee Kuah at Abu, and being super patient with me the whole entire time.

 And all that before you even asked the question (this is the part where you will tell people "you forced me to ask one!)! I'm just very grateful for you being you and being that one dude that I can rely on completely. Love all that bang chang koay moments, love all your forehead kisses, love it when you snore (NOT!), love it when you   play with Kelly, love it when you satisfy my food cravings, love it when you would come into my house like its your own, love it when you put that extra effort to coming church even if you just slept for few hours the night before, love it when you sing (out of tune) out loud and confidently in the car, love it when you dance like no one is around you, love it that you have such a good heart and love it (a lil) when you passionately tells me about your love towards Manchester United. And today marks our one year as a couple. It's only one year? It feels like years already to me! :) 

Cheers to many many many more years to come and the many more roller-coaster rides that we will conquer.

Blessed 1st, babe.

Just Cos.

I don't usually update or want to write anything on weekends because you know how weekends are very precious for someone who works Monday to Friday. 

Since I'm still awake and he's still playing dota, I might as well do something. 

One of the many things that we talked about (passionately) is Twitter, which we have been on this issue since days ago. I tend to take twitter as my "punching bag" where I update my emotions constantly. Angry. Sad. Excited. Lazy. Disappointed. You name it. And then, he made me realized that it's all pointless and not very mature, which I find it true. And how he also explained an incident/scenario/circumstances in another perspective that I never would be able to see even if it was gonna hurt my feelings. Well, it''s true that truth hurts. Speaking about being thankful to have that someone to be THAT honest to me :)

Must. Use. Social. Media. Wisely. From. Now. Onwards.

On another note, if you haven't LIKE us on our Facebook page, let me help make it easier for you. Just click here :)

So far, we are enjoying every bit of food blogging. We might be getting our own domain real soon! Do keep up with us :)

Goodnight yous.

Money Issues.

Money:

can buy you a house, but not a home.
can buy you a bed, but not a good sleep.
can buy you a clock. but not time.
can buy you a position, but not respect.
can buy you blood, but not life.
can buy you food, but not a good appetite.
can buy you insurance, but not safety.
can buy you a car, but not safe journey.

Money, in fact isn't the ultimate goal in life. It should not and must never be. Money isn't everything.

Of course money makes most things in life more comfortable. So, I heard one of the famous saying "Would you prefer crying in a Kancil or a Ferrari?" My thought is that, when you are already crying, would it matter what car you're in? Not for me at least.

Money makes the world goes round. Money separates the rich and the poor in such a sad way. The rich will never be satisfied with whatever amount of gold that they already have and they will dig more and more.

"Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless" (Ecclesiastes 5:10)
Well, I'm not saying that the rich people should stop and not continue to do whatever they are doing. Of course not. It's just rich people face higher chance of getting obsessed with money than poorer people, I would think. They become more critical in being thankful for the little things. Or at least that's what I have been seeing/hearing. Just a thought..

One of the things that I have been really thankful towards God is the fact that I was not born with a silver spoon. And I was raised knowing and believing that money isn't everything. I grew up believing that money must not be an issue that separates people. And I'm thankful that I became a person who is easily contented with whatever God has given to me so far.

Nick Vujicic said "You can either be angry because of the things you don't have or be happy of the things you have". Two choices. And I chose the latter one. It's not difficult, really. It's a choice that everyone (at one point of your life) had to choose.

I could be upset that I still don't have my own car, or a house (now that I'm 2X.. Okay, nvm..) or pay for a good holiday for both my parents, bring my grandma to China etc. But right now at this point of my life, I am thankful for all that I have. I have a mother that shares her car with me. At times, she rather walked to Kelly's school under the hot sun so that I could use the car to work. I am thankful for that. I am thankful for a father that supports me in all my decisions. Two sisters that I know at anytime when I needed them, they would drop all their issues and run to me. A brother in law who ever-willing to give me a hand in anything. A boyfriend whom never fails to make me smile. Kelly, who makes me see beauty in everything. I am thankful.

"Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have" (Hebrews 13:5)


Then when I first got this job, many people have looked at me in disbelief and they couldn't understand why did I settle for this career when I have more than just that. Of course working in finance related path pays more. No doubt about that. But when I hear all the stories about my collegemates earning a lot, first question that I would like to ask them was "Are you happy with your job? Is it stressful?" Yes, I want to have a stressfree job (and got it) Well, for me, money isn't the ultimate goal. My liking towards the career, my happiness matters more.

On another note, I like the new Ringgits la. I prefer it than the older ones. The colors are like so bright and nice. It's like fake money. Haha. Malaysia is not a perfect country. Nowhere near perfect. But I am thankful that I'm here and not somewhere else. I'm proud to know Bahasa Melayu (it is a foreign language to others). It's like learning French or Japanese and people usually brag about oh how they are loving it and how its a special skill bla bla. Bahasa Melayu IS a special skill also what. It's not like the whole world knows how to speak in it also. So people, be thankful that we know not just English or Mandarin or Hokkien. And also the fact that Malaysia is a summer all year long. Gotta love the sun.

God never make mistakes what right. So, it is the right thing that you and I are born in this country. Let's look at the bright side of Malaysia too :)

Ze Ring.

You must be wondering, this one also want to blog ah. Yes, I blog anout anything that excites me, sort of.

So, I finally got the ring.

Nothing big la. It's just I saw it few weeks ago, dropped it and took a while to find it back and return to the grumpy seller. Went home and kept thinking about it. Returned to the shop few weeks later, straight buy it and gave my widest smile to the grumpy man. LIKE A BOSS!

This is the perfect example of love at the first sight.

I kid you not.

First Love Letter.

First saman. Another 'reminder' that I'm all grown up and have to pay by myself d. Haha. 

Just because I felt so lazy to park behind the lorong this morning, so I ended parking beside Infinity. And few minutes later, tadaaaa. I parked for like 30 minutes only and I was gonna leave office d. Joke la :D




Okayla. At least the person's handwriting is very nice.
I smiled the moment I saw this huge paper.

Life's good like that. All the ups and downs.

2D1N Kuala Lumpur: HTT's Annual Dinner 2013.

My very first company's annual dinner. 

Because this year they are having it in the HQ, we all get to make a trip down to mad city for 2D1N. Really short getaway but no one's complaining, right. 

So, let's get it started (WARNING: LOADS OF PICTURES AHEAD)


must-have-things-in-long-rides: fav smelly pillow, sweater, toilet paper, shades, socks (yes, i need to cover my feet to not freeze in bus)

the very confy seats we've got to enjoy.

two hours break at One U before proceeding to Sepang Gold Coast (which was like 2 hours away) Hersheys galleria, only in Mad City.

Arrived safely. Got a room all to myself NOT! Haha. Four peeps to one massive room. 

You will know it when Penang lang arrives. Very noisyyy!

Alicia, the person I sit next to in office.

The structure of the whole resort is a palm tree, hence the name of the resort.

The many pathways to the so many rooms that they have. 

View from ze room. The picture just doesn't do the justice la. It's breathtaking. The chalets were literally on the water. Can't see any beach area from my side :)


Door gift that was given :))

What I see from my bed.

More balcony's view.


I opened the closet and saw that the color was pretty so decided to be 'artistic'. Tadaaa, my party dress, necklace and bracelets. So colorful rightt.



The bathroom so huge. 

Dolled up for the event at the beach. 

My roomies, Alicia and Vivian, head of corporate sales.

Goofy-ing around with their props.

Alicia and Malik.


The weather was at its best. Not too sunny, and not too windy (so no hair flying everywhere)

I thought the table set-up was pretty decently classy. Gold always makes thing a lot classier.

The colorful set-up of the canopies. 

With so many guests, around 300, that is one small stage.

Face painting: rose (fav flower)

4 newbies of the company.

Vivian and I.

Food was just alright. Nothing to shout about. I've had better bbqs anytime.

Breakfast was heavenly, especially at this bakery section. I'm not a big fan of flour-y foods but their pastries were WOW. And I had yogurt. You would know if you have followed me on Instagram (which is so weird cos Salaku doesn't touch yogurt)

Breakfast with infinity pool's view. Too bad no time to swim in it. 

Each got an instant photo print-out.

HTT's Corporate Sales Team. Youngest in the team yo :)

Raining when we left. Gonna miss the place. Oh and they have the softest pillows and most comfortable blanket ever. 

Won a travelling bag and sunscreen from Singapore Airlines. Not that bad. Most of the prizes were return air flight tickets to Bangkok, Paris, Hatyai, Jakarta, Korea, Taiwan and any Europe destinations. All fully sponsored by the giant airlines: MAS, Emirates, Etihad, Singapore Airlines, China Airlines etc. Good thing I didn't win any of those air tickets. If not, go alone ma very sad. Of course we also have Iphone 5 and Samsung smartphones and Ipads for giveaways. And of course I didn't win any of those. If not, Instagram and Twitter friends sure know d. Haha. 

It was a great bonding time with my fellow HTT-ers. Here's to a good start for the company! :)
