That Promise - A Short Story.

WHAT? IT'S HERE?

Yeahh. On the Youtube and on Facebook. It's been like what? Months since we did this thing. An adventure that we agreed in doing to help a good friend. I have to say that it's been fun and tiring. What I loved most of this whole experience is that I get to do it with him. I never knew that he is such a good actor. I mean, the camera loves him. Goodness. He looked so good behind those lens. Anyways, it was in the span of few days that we filmed this video.

At first, quite awkward because we both never acted before in front of a camera and we felt most comfortable being in our own element. So, this adventure for sure brings us to a certain level of discovering each other.

For some of the scenes, we actually spent quite a long time laughing our backsides off and trying to keep those giggles inside, boy that was the hardest. I think we laughed most and hardest at our arguing scenes. So difficukt to make out an arguing scene okayy! HOW TO PRETEND YOU'RE ARGUING!?! Then, when one of us just let out a very tiny smile curve on our lips, the other instantly laugh out d! SO HILARIOUS! Then, we actually had to stay away from each other for few minutes to calm down first then only continue rolling the camera. The photo on the right is the ONE SCENE that took us forever to film. The moment we open the door nia, we straight burst d. Quite an experience really. Definitely one of the moments we laughed so hard ever since we became buddies. Ahh..

So many beautiful moments also, like the proposal part. Photos hanged everywhere and petals of red roses being spread in and around the heart shaped candlelit floor. I've gotta say (said once in Twitter), that it felt real. Felt like he really is gonna pop it there and then. I mean, he did for the video sake. Hah. We realized now that these kind of things cannot practice wan la. I had to do the same reaction of saying YES so many times until I don't know how to react anymore lo. Haha. For him also I think he asked till so many times till numb d.

Then, the last part of the film shows that he's talking to the dead me at the ever famous Francis Light's graveyard. Don't know who's tombstone also. Some Ms Catherine or something. Favorite mentioned bucketlist has got to be my three dogs: Hock, Kian and Mee. And they are real dogs. Two brothers and a sister living together! Another favorite film moments was at the beach during sunset. That was just pure pretty. We took some walking scenes too but not shown in the video.

Ahhhh! I'm glad we did it in the end. I remembered being very reluctant in this but he said yes, so I guess that was a good call. For those who haven't watch them yet, CLICK CLICK! *points below*

Enjoy laughing at us :)

The Love For B.

Yesterday (and today!), I did some research on the latest Blackberry Q10.  The more I looked
at it, I kinda like it even more. The first time when I saw it was in Gurney Plaza. And I kinda instantly hated it. Didn't really like the look of it. Feel that not very nice compared to Blackberry Bold 9900/9930. But then again, I kept googling them and liking them even more.


Not only that, I just found out through watching a video on it that we can have the Instagram app through the Crackberry. SOUNDS OKAY TO ME! But then, I am still in contract with my current S2. So downzz okay. Want to save money for the house some more. I don't know what to do la!

Then, this morning tried calling Koay so many times but he never answer. In the end, had to call one of our friend who happened to work in the same company to call him. That also tak jadi. In the end, Aaron came down by himself to get Koay's electronic card from me. So geram okayy! Apparently, Koay's hp was in hang mode and didn't even get any calls from me. Wahhh! You have no idea how stress I was this morning! I was already late to work.

Anyways, later then he called and explained all that and stuff. Then, this sweet thing happened :)
Koay: My phone really gone case.
Me: You and your phone together gone case la.
Koay: Abo, I buy new phone?
Me: *keeps quiet*
Koay: I buy your phone then you can go buy your Blackberry lo!
Me: WHAT??!! How much you want to pay for my S2?
Koay: RM500. Actually your hp I see worth only RM400, but since you my gf, I give you RM500 la.
Me: Seriouslyy?? But got no Instagram app wor in Blackberry! (I haven't watch the video yet that time)
Koay: Too bad la.
Me: Nvm, the Instagram app in your "new phone" is my account la.
Koay: *laughs evil style* you ban ban tan.

HAHAHA. He rather settle for a second-hand phone so that I can actually get mine. Wow. Maybe he felt really bad for all the times I called him and forever no answer. But whatever it is, that made my day. Knowing that I actually have another option to getting the baby. Of course what also made my day is the fact that he's so sweet and thoughtful. Ahhh.. :)

But it's still so expensive leh! Ahhh. I should just shut this down and forget about it. Sadness wei.

On another note, it's winter wonderland everyday in office. I have no idea why is everyone else like numb to the temperature. I need two sweaters and that also, I still feel very brrr..

ONE MORE DAY TILL WEEKEND. YESLA! :)

Annual Thing.

Last night we discussed about Youth Camp 2013.

Yep, another less than six months to go, with so much lesser number of camp staffs.

We can do this. We will do this.

Let's do this.

Just A Day.

Good girl stayed home whole night yesterday. Not to mention cook dinner for the sick boy and fed him with cough syrup. And allow him to steal one piece of durian. Ooops. You must be like, "fed him with cough syrup?" "So old d, still need girlf to feed?" Well, hmm.. I don't know if I can even try to explain this. It makes the syrup taste sweeter? I don't know.. I always need people to feed me with medicine. It's just my way of taking it better. Not sure for him though. Hah.

And we stayed home because we actually had no choice. I wanted to just like hang out at Mugshot or Piknik but his condition doesn't really allow that. Ugh to falling sick and coughing his lungs out. Thanks Indonesia, thanks. Pffft.

So yeah, we cuddled on teh couch and watched "Mother's Nightmare" or is it "Mother's Worst Nightmare?" I'm not so sure. Cuddling and watching TV is something we so don't do often. Cos everytime we have some "free time", we would go hang out outside or watch a movie in the cinema or just something outdoor. I guess this haze condition allow us some bonding time at home :)

Alright, not gonna say much more today. Feels so sleepy today. Speaking of sleep, I realized that if there is one thing that I will really spend most of my money in, other than food, it would be my bedroom. My mattress and pillows and comforter and blankets. All must be made of MOST COMFY MATERIALS! MUSTT!

Signing off with a funny video and one of my alltime favorite youtuber.


Oh, and the boy is going to play for fireBRANDS in this year's league :))

Rode The Night Away.

Monday is here again. Waking up this morning was a lil harder than usual. Snoozed the alarm three times before I actually forced myself to get to the bathroom. It just seemed like the 7 hours of snoozing is not enough. Feeling a lil more tired compared to other weekends. Hopefully the boy hasn't passed his virus to me, and praying hard this body system is stronger to fight back those things.

So yeah. The weekends that flew all of us by. Quite a fun packed weekend I must say.

We went cycling around town at night, after trying to get the bicycle for close to an hour. I think we spent more time getting there, finding a carpark and renting 6 not very safely-functioning-bicycles. We went to few touristy spots and took some photos. RM15 for 24 hours. That's pretty okay if we actually used them for more than 2 hours. Will I rent and go for night cycling again? Definitely not. Unless I don't have to pay for the rent la. But, overall, it was a fun night :)


And then, I decided to go for a haircut on Saturday. A HUGE transformation that I have been waiting for one week. Supposed to get them done a week ago but had to reschedule that due to a family photoshoot. A year ago, I did exactly the same thing. That random and spontaneous feeling. Gotta do what I gotta do. Haha.

Sunday was pretty alright. Koay's family came to church for the second time :) We went to see the photos that we all did last week as a whole family :)

For now, please stay indoor as long as you can. Jerebu sudah datang ke pulau ini. And drink lots of water people. Stay safe and stay strong! :)

The New Craze.

I totally forgot about updating this amazing night at Mod-Em's. So yeah, the night that we all decided to meet up earlier than the usual time to prepare the ingredients and cook together. Some chops, some peels, some make drinks and some just relax and watch some TV. I can proudly say that I actually did some of all, maybe except the making drinks part.

The menu of the night was tacos/burritos and chips with homemade tomato salsa. I realized now that it is very easy to make them. If I can just have the ingredients, I can make those for dinner at home, by myself. Haha. Or I can try making them and serve Koay and see if he likes it. Hah.

All we need is some cooked diced breast meat, grated cheese, the burritos's wrap thingy and make some salsa to go with it. Oh and store some sour cream in the fridge!

This night made me realized that I love eating sour cream. It's too delicious. And I think it's fattening too. Yes?

I don't have a lot of photos of that night because once the food was ready, we were ready to jump at it. So, the one that I have here is thanks to Isaac Huang. And ever since I use Andrew's or Nicholas's phone to snap photos, I don't really want to use my phone's camera anymore. Okla, I gotta admit that iPhone's camera is a lot clearer and sharp.

And since this is food related post, I have decided to start my NO-SUPPER-PLAN effective immediately. My only rest-day/cheat-day is on Saturdays. Obvious reason is of course after youth how to NOT eat when 10plus people are eating. How? So yeah, I shall have a cheat-day!

I'm hoping that this time the plan will work. As in I will have the discipline to see it through. Time to get back into shape and not to mention also the stamina. Floorball All Girls League starts in a week. And I haven't been running or doing anything that constantly allow me to sweat or increase stamina. GG.com for sure.

Thailand Team Reunite.

So, we met up last night at Ps Jonathan's house for some bonding time together. It's been weeks since we came back and oh how much we all  missed that place, food and the people. So, Pastor and his lovely wife, Lydia cooked up a storm to host us. Amazing Tomyam soup and non spicy soup with Tesco roasted chicken of two flavors!

It's not the food or the coconut milkshake or Bella the puppy or the Digital Game that I won twice in a row (ahem for first timer!) that we played together that made the night so fun.

It's the people that was there. It's the family that has welcomed up into their house and boy, we were so loud and noisy. I am missing the random laughters already.

Thank you again Pastor Jonathan, Lydia, Joy and Liz for all the hosting you gave to us! We all love love you and your family! :) And I love your mini pillows, Liz! I actually "ordered" 10 pieces of her handmade mini pillows because they are so soft, cute and loveable. I felt bad but she said she love doing it! :) People, you want to buy pillows, you come find me. She's only 11 years old but her pillows are TWO THUMBS UP! :)

And we did discuss for next year's plan to Thailand already :)

Cockroach Trap Testing.

It's quite a long story why I decided to give this a try. There has been few occasions where these little disgusting things are caught crawling in my room. What i don't understand is that I never eat in my room or even drink. I won't let anyone do it as well. So, why are they still found in my cozy place? Must be Koay. The reason I say it's him because there was a few times he ate in my room and leave half full cup with water in them on my table. And yes, cockroach is kinda attraced to water too. Or maybe not. Hmm.

Anyways, did some googling and this is what I found: (apparently they really like sweet stuff like honey..)

"Cockroaches are one of the oldest groups of insects, indicating how successful they have been in adapting to changes in their environments. One reason for this success may be related to diet--they are scavengers and will eat anything organic. They prefer food sources such as starches, sweets, grease and meat products, but other items may include cheese, beer, leather, glue, hair, starch in book bindings, flakes of dried skin or decaying organic matter (plant or animal)."

So yeah, till today I STILL DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY COME FROM AND WHY!?

I was so pissed with the whole situation till I almost went into tears okayy. It's too frustrating. Then, after I calmed down, I managed to thank God for the whole "situation"!

I remembered my sister used this at her in law's place before and theymanaged to catch the "queen" of it all. It's really huge! Not only one, a lot went into the trap actually. So, I thought I wanna try and catch them too. Beware: if you look closely, it's seriously disgusting!



Let's see how we did with it this time.

Yed, we only manage to get 4 small ones. And all that were from Koay's car. Nothing in my house. NOTHING. We caught a baby lizard when my dad put a part of a cupcake on it. DOWNS LA.

I know they are there but why they no like my trap! But ever since then, there is no more crawlies that I see. If you happen to come to my house, you might see all these red triangular boxes at some hidden places. Haha. I am determined to get the queen out. Arghh.

For now, I am gonna keep praying no more all weird crawlies in my room. It's so mentally disturbing okayy!

I is signing off now.

It All Just Sounds Like Oooooohh.


I don't know how can anyone not like this song or the one who created it. I'm putting it on repeat for like almost like ten times already in the office while sending emails out to ten thousand people! LOVE LOVE LOVE Boyce Avenue's voice. Super LOVE.

On another note, there is no "indirect" meassage/meaning to post this here. In case if anyone of you start wondering/thinking that I might be referring the meaning of the song to the ex or anyone at all. Nope, it's not. It's just because I really like this version and want to share it here :)

Like I say earlier, HOW CAN ANYONE NOT LIKE THIS SONG!? HOW?!

Fast.

So, today Kelly and I decided that we would go for training as went there we did. Much fun of course. Came home with aching muscles as expected. Jelly legs however is totally not expected. Blah.

Spent whole noon looking after Sha Lynn as her left eye got viral infected. Poor girl. 

Anyways, I had salad for lunch! That's like super super yay! And pretty delicious I must say. Myzi's Signature Salad.

And now, the tummy is twisting and turning and something's going on in there. Ahhh..

Oh oh! And as I was cleaning baby's bum bum after big output, another small fresh yellow-ish one came out right after. Haha. Hot and soft literally! And no, not disgusting at all :)

Blessed weekend guys :)

Sudden Salad.

My goodness.

I do not know what is wrong with me today! Just all of a sudden I'm craving for salad so badly. Ahhh. Too sudden already leh.

I even just googled recipes to do salad.. More specifically Thai Salads. But no.. Too many ingredients to have to make the dressing. Stress.

Then, I started looking at more western style and it makes the craving even worse. Maybe I should try having salad as one of the daily meals. Either lunch, dinner or supper. Don't know if I can survive also or not. It's about  time to lose those extra not wanted baggages. Hah.

So tempted to just go get salad from somewhere. HOW! This is too mean! Ahhhhh!

Hate it when craving of such thing comes all of a sudden. And I'm not even pregnant or something. Could not imagine when I did, all random cravings is gonna hit like tsunami. No kidding. Let's not go there. So anyways, blessed weekend everyone! Oh, maybe I shall have salad for lunch tomorrow. I could grill some breat meat and raw salmon with it. Oh how yums just thinking about it. How yums. No need dressing also sure nice alreadyy.

So good that it's Friday today!

Toods.

Green Is The New Black/Brown.




This is still considered alright because he didn't send the actual green treasure to my phone :)

Lost In Lost.

I realized that if I'm going to update my blog everyday, soon I'll run out of things to talk about already. Or I can start talking about my everyday life, like a day everyday is Sarah's shoe. Well, that will be a bore for sure. My life is not everyday happening kind. Though I tend to want to have plans every night. Then, I realized that the body needs more rest than the mind. So yeah.. no going out every night.

Speaking of body and resting, mom insisted that I start eating pig's liver if my blood pressure doesn't normalize and if I still feel like there's earthquake in my brain every 20 minutes or so. God, help me.

Just today I was talking to my dad about getting a house of my own soon and stuff like that. And then he said. "I only got my first bought apartment when I was 3*" And I was like, "Whattt?" Noo.. For sure I know God's gonna help me with this. For sure :) No house.. No a lot of things.. Hah.

On another note, I am finally going into Season 4 of Vampire Diaries. It was boring at first and then it got nice and now, it's starting to be boring again. The Walking Dead and Pretty Little Liars ftw! Next, I will be looking into Lost. I'm gonna try finish all the season. No dateline though. Try my best to enjoy the series. The last time I watched it was many many years ago and that also the first two episodes, I cabut already. Haha.

Other than all this usual thing on my daily life, I am missing that so much! *points to the photo*

Kanom Jeen. Truly a Thailand's delicacy. Delicious and literally fingers licking good! Their fried chicken also like extra yummy eh lo. No kidding. Ahh. I can still remember it being super juicy and super crunchy on the skin. Superr! *drools*

If I ever venture into business, any business at all, I would love to open a Thai Restaurant that serves real Thai food and charge people cheap cheap so that a lot of people would come. Penang people will not go for expensive Thai food. Never ehh. So many Thai food places in Penang that is nice and cheap okayy.

Now I'm super craving for some Tomyam action and keng som steamed fish and freid chicken. Ahhh. Such torture. Alright, 8 minutes to going home. Toods.

Mind, Be Blown.

An old man was going for a walk, when he noticed a little boy feeding a thin, shaggy looking dog with bits of bread. He went up to the boy and asked him why he was sharing his bread with the dogs.

The little boy answered, "Because they have nothing. No home, no family, and if I don’t feed them they will die." 


“But there are homeless dogs everywhere," the old man replied. “So your efforts don’t really make a difference” 

The little boy looked at the dog and stroked him. But for this little dog, it makes all the difference in the world.”

Cameron Lyle, University of New Hampshire athlete, asked to choose between donating bone marrow to a total stranger with leukemia or competing in the championship he'd worked toward for 8 years.

He chose to end his athletic career to save a  28-year-old male cancer patient who doctors said had just six months to live. 

Female chimpanzee Dorothy died of heart failure. She was over 40 years old.

As she was being carried away, behind the fence together all the normally lively chimpanzees looked on in silence as their friend's lifeless body is wheeled away. Some even put their hands on the shoulders of one another.

Hop Hop.

I went searching for old blogs. Dead and rotting blogs. Found some really rotted ones and it kinda made my day. Looking back at those photos of how they looked like in the past. Past as in just few years ago. SO FUNNY.

Some started new blogs. Some just never came back blogging.

Just so funny how sometimes you get that feeling of wanting to start a blog, put some attempt to keeping it alive for few months probably one year and then poof! All no more blogging. So sad! Because I don't no blogs to read d.. Haha.

Please feel free to leave your blog address in the comment box below so that I can follow you back! I enjoy reading blogs like how I enjoy reading magazines or like how I enjoy eating spicy stuff.

Ahhh. I really miss eating Thai food. If I could, I would eat it everyday at least once. This is sad :(

Yay and Nay.

Rain on a Sunday?

Yay or nay?

Both for me. Today, I felt especially energized for some workout. And by workout I mean a few rounds of jogging around youth park and few rounds of captain ball. 

But it has to rain whole afternoon today. It just has to.

I slept through the noon anyways. So cold weather so nice to sleep in okay. So that's a yay for me.

Okay, maybe one more hour of nap will be good while waiting to go for dinnahh.

:)

Thailand Mission Trip.

If I can choose a few words to describe the one week long mission trip, it would be THE UNPREDICTABLE JOURNEY WITH GOD.

You must be wondering why UNPREDICTABLE. Though we knew the itinerary of this trip, everything kinda change when we got there. Most of the visits/plans were last minute being told to us, and it brings us to a whole new level of being flexible while doing God's work. It's a crazy ride with Him. It's a very refreshing crazy kind of ride.

From sharing our stories to feeding the poor with medicines and making sure the children swallow their de-worm pills, we all worked as a team for the glory of His Kingdom.

I have been to quite many of mission trips, but this one is one very different one. This is by far the most hardcore I've experienced. Actually, it's not that hardcore la. We stayed at a very nice place called Vineyard Orphanage. I'm not sure if that's the full name of the place. It's something like that. We stayed/ate/played with 24 kids in that huge blessed house. Then, we traveled around Chiang Rai to the mountain areas, to Laos where we ministered to the villagers, to Myanmar at one small church and Chiang Mai and Hat Yai.

All those travelling usually takes 4-6 hours daily for us to get to our destinations. It was tough as we all had to sit behind on a pick-up truck and mountain areas gave me quite bad of motion sickness. Probably because of my low blood pressure also, that's why I feel dizzy most of the time. 100 plus usually makes it feel better. Salt need to increase inside. Hah.

Other than all that, we get to taste the most amazing Thai food ever. Most of our main meals we had them with the village people and their local way of cooking them. Very simple yet very yummy. Not once was I craving for Penang/Western food at all throughout the entire trip. Told you I can live here forever. People there sumore so nice and polite. But not their driving attitudes la. Or manybe it's just their culture. If I were to be driving there, I would easily get offended with the way they honk at you. Haha.

I don't think words can be used to describe this trip. All of us had tears rolling down our cheeks. And all of us had that moment of missing the people there. All of us, seen the side of the Big Man that I believed we have never seen. A trip that I will forever remember, for sure.
