Am proud to announce myself as a Sarawak Blogger now. Well, I have always been a Sarawak blogger. But now I'm more. I'd decided to checkout the new Sarawak Blogger team when I saw the logo up at Irene's blog.
Turns out it really caught my attention. Always wanting to be able to attend events. I just missed out one. The go-kart demo at Hills. Why no one inform me????? Sigh~
Although I'm categorized as a Casual Blogger but it's alright. I'll just have to do some little touch-ups to my posts and I should be fine. Probably I should write with more proper english =) Being under the Prime Blogger category will be more fun cos you will be their priority at inviting to events and parties!!!
So my target now is to try and brush up my english to meet with their criteria. Wish me luck!
Anyway, calling all you Sarawakians out there!!! Just click below and hop on to the site for a visit. Support us ya~~

Why girls need make-ups? Why guys like pretty girls? Hahahaha!!!! I like to make-up but not the heavy type for dinner. Always suck at putting on foundation, concealer and whatever powder needed. So nope! I don't use all those.
I think an eyeliner pencil is good enough for me. Haha! Lazy pig here~~~
But I can't just go with an eyeliner to a grand dinner!!! Have a very very grand dinner to attend next Friday. My head is now filled with lots and lots and lots of questions!!!
How to do my hair? How to make-up? What dress to wear? How to put on fake lashes? Or do I even wana put it on? How to this how to that???? So yeap! I am now watching YouTube for tutorials =.='''''
Last night went Spring to buy some 'needed' stuff. My mascara had dried out so I bought one just to replace it. I don't wana smudge my eyes during the grand grand night, so bought a liquid (said waterproof) eyeliner. This time, I feel like enhancing my lashes so I bought the glue cos I do have a pair at home. Hehe =D
I don't go for branded make-up stuff. So don't introduce me Revlon or Maybeline or Kate or Anna Sui or MAC or whatever lah~ It's just way too expensive for me.
I just hope everything works out fine for me. Guess I'm not going to the salon anymore. Do my own hair at home. I applied half day leave on that day just to prepare myself for a 3hours dinner. Hahaha!
Now, do I wana go with smokey eyes or gold make-ups????? And!!! Lastly!!! How to keep my face dry and fresh??? Always gets oily and that's why I have smudge eyes =(( Sien arh~~~
This is what I mentioned in my Plurk yesterday. Hehehe =DD Let the pictures tell the story~~~
Want a set of these? Hehe =D Head down to your nearest Sports Toto outlet now!!!! They're giving it FREE if you buy the new games!!! Grab it fast while stocks lasts!!!!
Last weekend, Popular had a huge book fair at Tun Jugah food court. It occupied about half of the food court eh. The sale was up to 70%. I guess they were trying to clear some stocks. Hehe~
As a novel reader, surely I can't miss this opportunity. So I went to Tun Jugah with darling on Sat night. Made 2 purchases. Yeap! Spent RM57 for 2 novels~~
Bought this two novels by Sidney Sheldon. Actually I bought the wrong one on that night. I read wrongly. Then the next day I went to exchange, luckily the staff is nice. So I manage to get my book changed and now this 2 is added to my collection.
Now my next target is the latest novel by Cecelia Ahern. Can't really remember the topic. Spot it at MPH already but then it's rather expensive. So am waiting for sales now. Hehe =P~
Haven't start reading this two yet. No time so far. Busy busy busy~~~
This year we celebrated our 2nd year anniversary a little earlier cos the actual day falls on a Monday which I have class to attend. So we celebrated during the weekend before it.
Darling kept asking me where to go. We're kinda out of places to try in Kuching. Haha! Probably we should fly out of Kuching just for a dinner eh? Kekeke =P~
Well, I said since Silhouette had been opened for quite some time and we haven't try, so why not? Though we both know it's expensive there, but it's a once in a year thing. And it's a memorable sweet date. So we both agreed to splurge a little on the day.
We were there quite early I think. There were no one in there. Except for a few man sitting by the bar for some drinks.
Now I can have this picture of my own. Hehe =) Always spot it around people's blog.
And then I realized that the wine shelf is like super huge and nice! Dang I wish to have one just like that at my home. Full of wines~~~
Quiet huh~ Is it always this quiet or only on that night?
I find this chair very unique. Guess what hopped through my mind? Remember those old school table whereby you sit by yourself and you have your desktop connecting to your chair? Hahaha! I know I've sat in one before. Forgot where dy.
Time to order. Darling seems to have a thing with the soursop drinks eh. He said it's nice. And has been drinking it lately. Hmm....
While I....ok fine. I forgot what drink is this. It's green so I guess it's apple? Can't remember!
Darling wanted to try out their pizza as he had seen alot from other people's blog as well. And we didn't know it came out this huge! Couldn't finish of course. So I tapao'ed home. Hehe =D
While I have my first taste of lasagna. Kekekee =DD Well I expect more cheese though. Haha! This is a huge portion for me. Darling can't eat beef so I had to swallow all of it by myself =___=''''
My comment of the place? A good try. Not bad. Service is good. Food taste well. Price? I only go to expensive places about 3 times a year? Hahahaha! So probably I won't be back there anymore~ Unless someone is there to sponsor me. Heee~~~
And ah~ Please feel free to drop some comments about where else can I dine in Kuching. Seriously I feel like flying West for our next anniversary.

Ok so here I am to show off my first birthday present this year~~~ I know it's early. And it is SUPER early!!! Hahaha! Actually I received this present last month! February!!! Someone very nice gave this to me cos he saw I posted in fb saying that I want this thing to accompany me during office hours.
And yes, you all should know my office pc is super hyper lousy that I can't even plug in a pendrive! And the most stupid thing is that, it doesn't even have a Windows Media Player! What a waste~!
So here I am. Not going to reveal the nice person =) Cos of a little personal matter.
Yeap! It's original Sony stuff~~~ Wana guess more? Hahaha!
Don't have to guess that hard lah. I'll show it anyway. Oh the cap is a free gift by Sony. Heee~~~ I now have a cap! A black one! A Sony one!!! Honestly this is my first cap!!! I never own a cap in my life~ I mean this type of cap lah. Now I can go jogging with my cap AND MY WALKMAN~~~~~
Ok I know the price tag is still there. Hahaha! It's cos I already know the price so I guess he didn't bother to take it off. Reeeedddddd~~~~ See that reeedddd???? Hehehe =DD He got it in my favourite color too!!!!
I love the lighting! I love the shape! I love the color! I love all of it!!!!!
Now this I will declare as my current BEST gadget!!! Hp stands on 2nd best cos they're getting old already and full of scratches. Though my Samsung is still new but it's not as user-friendly as Nokia. I still support Nokia!!!
Now I can have music in office while I work~~~ Heeee~~~ Yes I brought it EVERYDAY to office and have more than 200songs in it!!! Keeps me entertained when I'm bored and quiet in office~~
Ok continue from yesterday's story. Hehe =) Today my grandpa got into newspaper again. It is a full page story today. So in order to put all the stories and pictures up here, I had to cut them out into pieces so that will be able to scan. And I know my cutting is cacat. Kekeke =P~
My grandpa is now known as the Jin Mian Ren of Kuching. Hehe =) Oh and today West Malaysia's newspaper also got publish. Fung at JB told me about it. Hehe proud leh~~
Pic above shows my grandpa took some of his Hindi movies collection. He happens to like to watch Hindi movies. I guess I got the genes from him. Haha! Cos I used to watch them every weekend when I was little.
Sitting to my grandpa's right is my 3rd uncle, Uncle Ling and next to uncle is my Aunty Cindy. The other guy is the reporter I think. Cos I wasn't there that morning. Regret!!!!!
How did my grandpa found out about his 'mirror image' structure was when he had the appendix operation. The doctor couldn't find is appendix when they did the xray. So he had to open in the middle of the abdomen to look for it. Hahaha!
Now this is my family portrait. Picture was taken about 8years ago I think. I can't really remember already. My grandparents have 11 children which consists of 3 sons and 8 daughters. Then their 11 children gave birth to 32 grandchildren! Hahahaha!!! So you can imagine now that our family have all the sons-in-law and daughters-in-law. And few years ago, our family increased by a few more granddaughters-in-law and also great grandchildren! Hehehe =D Big kan? Hiak hiak~~~
You may think that big family doesn't have good connection. But no you're wrong! We contact each other quite often and we always have those family gatherings. My mum and her siblings are really really close to each other.
This one's about my grandpa's health and love life. Haha! The story goes....
My grandpa and grandma doesn't have any dating or love feeling among them. It was during my great grandma's time at China that she brought back my grandma. My grandma was somehow being taken back by my grandpa's mum cos the family too poor. She was only 7years old when she came to Kuching.
When she start to grow as teenage girl, my grandpa likes her. Say my grandma pretty worh~ Haha! So they got married under bit match-making. My grandma is 1year older than my grandpa. They got married when grandma was only 20years old. Hehe =) A very simple love story. Hehe =)
It was the life after, that has lots of ups and downs cos of the world war. They had to run to Indonesia. And that was how my 3 uncles and 3 aunties plus my mum was born at Indonesia. They only came back to Kuching after the Malayan Merdeka. Mum said she was about 3years old when they came back to Kuching.
Mum said this picture is about my grandpa still have the Indonesia pass. Or something like that.
This is about his life after marriage. My grandpa used to be a fisherman. Always goes out to sea and only came home once in awhile. Sometimes didn't even go home. Only asked friends to send money or fishes back. My grandma used to sell kuih by cycling around the Malay kampung.
There was one time my grandpa's boat got crash by the storm. He was on sea for I don't know how long until one man came to save him. Then later the man who saved him became in-laws with my grandparents because his son was married to my 2nd aunty. Hehe =)
After grandpa no longer fish around, he and grandma started the 'vege car' business. The one that brings vegetable in a van to sell around. Life was definitely tough back then. Poor and had to feed so many kids.
Due to financial problem, my eldest aunty only studied until Primary 5. 2nd aunt, 3rd aunt and my mum only get to study until Primary 6. Whereas my uncles get to go to university.
When my 3 aunties and my mum started working, they paid for the school fees of my younger aunties. So yeah, they get to go to university as well =) But then it was worth the toughness. It's paid today as my aunties are manageress and my uncles are engineers.
Anyway, always remember and do trust the saying "what goes around comes around". All of my grandparents hardwork is paid off now. They're eating good and living good and are very healthy except for my grandma who can't walk on her own. Cos she cycled too much last time. Her knees couldn't support anymore.
Oh well~ That's about my family. From time to time, I'm sure we will have more shocking and interesting news~~

Hola!!!! I purposely put the pictures for this post super big so that you all can read as I don't do translation. Hahahaha!!!
The story is like this, my grandpa is born naturally with his body structure and system different from all of us. His heart and I think other parts as well, is at the opposite side of the normal person. For one I know is, his heart is at the right side instead of the left. Hehe =)
And then, as research says, this type of people actually won't live long BUT my grandpa is already 80years old!!! Remember we celebrated his 80th birthday with my ah ma on 3rd day of Chinese New Year?
Oh and it was on the 3rd day of CNY morning that the reporter went to interview my grandpa. My aunty, Cindy arranged the reporter for him. Hehe =)
Well in order to show that his body structure is really that way, they need my grandpa to go for an xray and show us all. Hiak~~
My proud happy 80years old grandpa!!!!!
This is the doctor showing the xray of my grandpa. Ok I don't know how to read xrays. Hahaha!!! So you doctors out there, help me read ok? Heheheh =P~
Do not ask me to translate cos I don't even ask my mum to do it for me. Hahaha!
Oh but I know this one!!!! It says, this type of people, those with their body system on the opposite side, is call "Jin Mian Ren" which means mirror image people. Cos when you look at the mirror, your body is the other way round right? Hehehe =D
Ok that's all. Just wana share something with you all about my proud grandpa! He is a one in a million!!!!
4th day of CNY, also is the day to have fun with my cousins before they left Kuching to go back home. So since they all wanted to go sing some songs, I booked a room at Popwave Banquet for 8 of us. Hehehe =DD

Come to Chinese New Year Day 3. The big day for my grandparents. Why?
Because on that night, we whole big Ho family celebrated my grandparents 80th birthday and 60th anniversary!!!! We have tons of games that night. Check out my photos~
This is my 2nd aunty. She likes to take photos. Haha!
Me and my cousin, Wen Kah. She's a grown up now. Pretty pretty~~~
The trios again =P~ Why do I look so tired in every photos?
Before we get to the programs that night, everyone ate at my big aunty's house. Potluck dinner.
Me and cousin, Ing. A soon-to-be doctor for ear and nose. Hehehe =D
There. The birthday cake that me and mum ordered from Taka Cake House. But then to be honest, I was rather disappointed at the design. I wanted the "shou" word to be as huge as possible but it ended up so small.
My Ah Kong and Ah Ma. Already 80years old lor. They were married when they're only 20years old. So young hor? Unlike us now. 40years old still don't want to marry. Hahaha!!!
Cameras all up! And video cams too!!!
Audiences getting ready to watch the programs of the night.
Host of the night. My 2nd uncle and 3rd uncle.
Audiences getting more and more. Hahaha!
Everyone so concentrated eh? Mum says this one feels like the old time cineplex. Front row 50cents, middle row RM1 and the list goes on. Hahaha!
This is where one by one of my uncles and aunties telling stories about how their life was when they were little.
For your info, all of you! I'm a China-Indon-Kuching girl. Hahahaha!!!! My grandma is from China and my grandpa is from Kuching. They went to Indonesia for a certain period of time after married and gave birth to my 3uncles and 3aunties and also my mum there at Indonesia. For the rest, they're born at Kuching. So yeah, I'm multirace. Hahahaha!!!
While waiting for the rest of them to tell stories, took some pictures around. This is my little cousin niece, Xi Xi. Cute hor? Hehe =D She is part China-Kuching also. Her mum is from China. Hiak hiak!
Ok. My mum's turn to tell stories. Hehehe =D Wana know what she tells?
Nah you see she laugh until like that. Hahaha! Ok lah. She told us that last time, my grandpa used to buy her lots of durians and langsats. And everytime my grandpa bought it home, he sure go to kitchen to find my mum and ask her eat first. Hahaha! So now my mum's favourite fruits are durian and langsat. Hehe =D
Dia banyak action! Hahahaha!!!!
Then it's time to blow of the birthday candles. Ah Ma's foot not that good so only Ah Kong bend down to blow off.
See Ah Kong so happy that night. Hehehe =D
That's my big aunt and 2nd uncle giving angpows to my grandparents.
Happy Birthday to Ah Kong and Ah Ma!!!!! May both of you live long long life!!!!!
Up next, performance by every single family!
HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Me and my mum sings some Hokkien song for my grandparents.
Then we also wishes Ah Kong and Ah Ma some nice nice wishes which I kinda forget. Oops!
These two are sisters. My dearly cousin, Wei and Jun. They performed dancing.
Everyone enjoys their dance alot!!!! Seriously entertaining!!!!!
And that was how they ended their performance. Hahahah! With the mother and brother joining in to make lots of fun. My aunty's position? WAS AS THE COCONUT TREE!!!! Hahaha!!!
After the performance for Ah Kong and Ah Ma, we then bring out cakes for their 60th anniversary. Do you call it the Silver Anniversary? Can't really remember though. The cakes are all also from Taka Cake House.
My cousin, Wen Kah drew a photo of my grandparents. She uses the wedding photo and transform it into a drawing. She's real good at drawing stuff.
After the photo session and all, we then had lots and lots and lots of games. Hosted by my aunties, Cindy and Kim.
This is the Henghwa language games. Each family to send a representative. But the representative had to be chosen by aunty Cindy. Hahaha! She purposely chooses those who doesn't know how to speak Henghwa at all. We really had a good laugh for this one.
And yes, for my family, my dad got chosen cos he's the only one who doesn't know Henghwa. Hahaha! And guess what, he speaks Hokkien instead of Henghwa. Hahahaha!
And then? He got disqualified lah! Hahahaha! These are all the looooseerrrsss~~~~ Kekekeke
Cousin Dr Tan won the Henghwa competition. He's the only pure Henghwaian but doesn't know how to speak Henghwa.
Aunty Nancy and cousin Han got 1st and 2nd runner up. Hehehe =D
Next is the kids game. Wonder what are they doing?
There's I-don't-know how many things inside this big plate. They were to memorize all of it and write them on a piece of paper. Hahaha!
And my bro suck at memorizing. Hahahahahah!!!!
3 of my cousins won the memorizing games.
While my aunty and her kids won the performance competition. Remember the coconut tree? Hahaha! I should take a video of it lah. Seriously funny.
There's actually lots more competition. I too won some. Hehe =D I won the Sudoku competition. Miahahaha!!! And I also won the multiplication competition.
