The Band Perry - If I Die Young




If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh, uh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

And I'll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little, cold finger, I've
Never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand, there's a
Boy here in town who says he'll love me forever,
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
The sharp knife of a short life, well,
I've had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh (uh, oh)
The ballad of a dove (uh, oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save them for a time when you're really gonna need them, oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls

Shaggy - It Wasn't Me




(Yo', man) Yo'
(Open up, man) What do you want, man?
(My girl just caught me) You let her catch you?
(I don't know how I let this happen) With who?
(The girl next door, you know) Man
(I don't know what to do) Say it wasn't you
(Alright)

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this, we were both butt naked, banging on the bathroom floor

How could I forget that I had
Given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

How you can grant the woman access to your villa
Trespasser and a witness while you cling to your pillow
You better watch your back before she turn into a killer
Best for you and the situation not to call the beaner
To be a true player you have to know how to play
If she say a night, convince her say a day
Never admit to a word when she say makes a claim
And you tell her baby no way

But she caught me on the counter (It wasn't me)
Saw me bangin' on the sofa (It wasn't me)
I even had her in the shower (It wasn't me)
She even caught me on camera (It wasn't me)

She saw the marks on my shoulder (It wasn't me)
Heard the words that I told her (It wasn't me)
Heard the scream geting louder (It wasn't me)
She stayed until it was over

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this, we were both butt naked, banging on the bathroom floor

I had tried to keep her
From what she was about to see
Why should she believe me
When I told her it wasn't me

Make sure she knows it's not you and lead her on the right prefix
Whenever you should see her make the giggolo flex
As funny as it be by you, it not that complex
Seeing is believing so you better change your specs
You know she not gonna be worrying bout things from the past
Hardly recollecting and then she'll go to noontime mass
Wait for your answer: go over there
But if she pack a gun you know you better run fast

But she caught me on the counter (It wasn't me)
Saw me bangin' on the sofa (It wasn't me)
I even had her in the shower (It wasn't me)
She even caught me on camera (It wasn't me)

She saw the marks on my shoulder (It wasn't me)
Heard the words that I told her (It wasn't me)
Heard the scream get louder (It wasn't me)
She stayed until it was over

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this, we were both butt naked, banging on the bathroom floor

How could I forget that I had
Given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

Gonna tell her that I'm sorry
For the pain that I've caused
I've been listening to your reasoning
It makes no sense at all
We should tell her that I'm sorry
For the pain that I've caused
You may think that you're a player
But you're completely lost
That's why I sing

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this, we were both butt naked, banging on the bathroom floor

How could I forget that I had
Given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

Butter Cake

It's a baking Sunday!!! Yep I went back to baking. Hehe =) I used to love baking so much cos I helped out my mom with baking when I was lil. Brings back old memories back at the shophouse we stayed. Mom will be the one weighing all the ingredients needed and doing the mixture while I'll help with beating the egg whites. Hehehe =D

I enjoy baking but I just dislike cleaning up. Haha! Who likes to clean up anyway =P

So, last week I asked mom for the butter cake recipe. Then I got all the ingredients except for the baking sheet and flour. So I asked for mom's help to get those ingredients. Mom is awesome when I'm lost. 

Today bf came over to help me with baking. It's my first time baking a cake without mom around to tell me what to do and how to do it. Cos I'm so used to baking that I already know how to mix the ingredients and how it should look like after the mixture so it's my turn to ask bf help with beating the egg whites. Hahaha!

After about one and a half hour of preparation, the cake is ready to bake!

Mixture of sugar, butter, egg yolks, flour and lastly egg whites! This was put into the oven and baked for an hour. Had to constantly check it after 45mins of baking just to make sure it's not over-baked.

One hour later. The yummy aroma filled my whole house. Bet my neighbours are slurping away. Hahaha!

A lil overbaked at the side but the center of the cake is just right.

Time for nom nom nom!!! Want a bite? Hehehe~

Til my next baking session~ Not giving out recipe cos it's my mom's recipe =P All you have to do is just google it up~ Hehehehe

Random Updates 12-07-2011

I feel like a lost lamb now. I just want to crap everything out and off. You know how life can be at crossroads at times? But man, mine isn't at crossroad now. It's as if I walked into a dark forest and can't find my way out. I've been feeling down and stressed and I don't know, maybe even depressed. I don't know who to talk to about this stuff. I can't talk about it to people around me cos they will all say about the same old stuff. What am I talking about? It's my career, my future.

Previously I have goals and aims and future dreams. But it seems to have shattered into pieces cos certain reasons keep pulling me back. Back in secondary school, I dream of becoming an accountant. A chartered accountant just so I can do the easy job. Sign the documents and get paid for my signature. How easy is that and how stupid I was to even think that it's an easy course. So off I went to major in accounting and my life was peaceful. It was until college that everything went down the drain. Not because I couldn't score my CAT but because that stupid love life screwed my life! If you were to ask me what do I regret most in my life so far? I will say it's that stupid decision back then. How foolish I was to thought that it's the right love. Oh love sucks! Anyway, my college life was screwed the minute I met that person. Everything seriously went down and down and down to hell. Eventually I quit the course and went to work. I had 9 subjects. Passed 4. Failed 2. The rest I didn't even bother to sit for them cos I quit myself.

And after a year and a half working with 2 different companies, I realized I wanted to go back to study. Yeah I got sacked from my previous company due to management stuff. Oh bad luck! My life wasn't that perfect you know. Even my blog was controlled by my previous employer. How sheesh was that? Nevertheless, I do not want to dirty my blog with those stuff so I did erase those blog posts off. So after I got sacked what did I do? I cringed at home for 2 months. 2 freaking months which was supposed to be the notice of termination period. During that 2 months, I told myself that I must go back to study cos certificate is important. Yeah it is indeed important in my family. Pressure is everywhere when you see 30 of your close cousins going into medical, engineering, accounting and are all doing very fine except for me who suck so much that my highest achievement was just SPM.

So then I enrolled myself into Sunway College Kuching and took the LCCI course. I told myself that I must study and get that damn cert. So I did. I made a few friends. I kept things to myself. Not socializing with people just so I can focus in class. Level 1 I passed with distinction. Proud of course and it is expected. Level 2 again I passed with distinction. This time 3 of my friends quit. Those were the only 3 I talked to. Oh wait there's another girl. Yeah she accompanied me until Level 3. Now we're just sulking here and waiting for our result which will only be out by August or September. I said I must graduate. And I know I will this time. But then, it's just a Diploma. How much can you get from a Diploma?

Back to my career. It's been 2 years since I started to work with this legal firm. I've got a very nice boss. Except that she can be a lil stingy. Which boss isn't kan? But she's nice. My colleagues are ok too. We get along as time passed. But it's already 2 years and my course is finish. The reason I stick to this boring job is cos it's so free that I can study in office. It's a really free job. Plus, I get my own room. So I can do anything I want there. Of course provided my work is done. Now I have a problem.

My goal to get a Diploma is done. What's next?

I don't know. I really do not know what to do next. After working from 8 to 5 everyday for 2 years, I'm kinda sick with this working hour and the hours I wasted in office doing nothing. I can't online. So there's lots of stuff that I can't do. Unless those stuff doesn't require internet connection. Everyone had been telling me to get a job with accounting firm, or work as accounts related post in any trading company. All of these spells BORING! I get bored easily. I can't do schedule stuff well. When I get bored, I go astray. I'll find a way to have fun. But my brain is stuck now that I do not know what kind of fun way can I get with my future career? I don't want to keep changing job after 2 to 3 years in a firm. I want something that can last me til I retire probably?

I did found something. I found tourism. Remember last year I had a family vacation to China and Hong Kong? Yeah only until last year that I realized there's a job called tour leader. And the job is easy. It's as if one gets paid to travel. Except with more responsibilities and a few stranger as company. People said I'm tall and I should go for air stewardess. But problem is, I do not want to serve people on air and I do not like aeroplane. I dislike the smell and the pressure. My blood pressure is near to low so yes I get dizzy all the time.

Back to topic. I went to ask about the tourism course. It's not the normal tourism course that every college or university offers. It's the tour leader course that I'm looking for. And I found one. Located at Jalan Tun Jugah Kuching. It's the Global Institute of Tourism. But what a cold water splash disappointment. The course is not available at Kuching yet. Only available at West Malaysia. Ok going to West Malaysia to study is a problem to me. Oh that's gonna link to another problem and I won't finish talking here.

The problem. I have a brother. Only 14 years old. He does not help with house chores, is very lazy, and do not know how to take care of mom. My pap is working at West Msia. While mom is here with us but as time passed, she aged and her health is already not at its best. Now that is the reason why I can't leave home. What if something happens? Who's gonna drive them around? Who's gonna help my mom with so many house chores? Ok I'm lazy too. But at least I helped when it's laundry time and cooking and washing the dishes. My bro? He helps when he's in the mood and most of the time? He's not in a good mood. So you can expect how life is gonna be like if I'm away and only left mom and bro at home.

Yes I know I said I wanted to be a tour leader and that requires me to leave home every now and then. But if I do get that job, at least my pap can come back and work here cos I already can help to burden the financial side of the family. Mom kept telling me to work with my uncle once I got my cert but I do not want. I do not want to live a boring life. Not working from 8 to 5 everyday til I retire. No way! I need something that keeps me alive. Something that keeps me going on and on and on. Something which is on the road. But I can't do sales. I'm not tough enough for sales. I don't like to persuade people to buy things that they do not want.

So in the end I'm back to square one. Being lost and do not know what job I want next after I get my cert. There's no way I'm going to continue study ACCA cos it's way too tough and the salary at Kuching will only drown a chartered accountant.

I think I'm done crapping? Just wait til the next time I crap again and we'll see if I had done anything good to my current life. I want to post something that SelmC wrote on Facebook note just now but without permission I can't do it here. But I did share the notes on my wall so if you have my Fb then just go ahead and read it. It's 'Please don't stop the rain'.

Ipoh Town Kopitiam

The weathers are so crazy these days! It's as if the sun had turned around and our country became the desert =.= Even staying home also it's so hot. What's best to do during a hot day? Yummeh ice cream? Or ice kacang? Hehehehe =)

I went for car wash!!! Looks like it's gonna be until tomorrow or the day after for the rain to come. And since my car haven't been showered thoroughly for long, I sent it for washy washy at B4 Ten car wash just opposite Betong Flat. Surprise surprise! I didn't know my dance teacher's dad opened his ice kacang stall there and named it Ah Yeo's Ice Kacang 2! Hehehehe =P Of course the one at Chung Hua No.3 primary school is still available. This second stall is under the management of his son. So now I get to enjoy ice kacang while waiting for my car to get washed~ 

After car wash, I wanted to go around the new shoplots at Stutong area cos I've never been there. I feel so sakai =.= There's so many things to see but I felt as if I'm walking into the shops around Matang area, if you get what I mean.

I love some improper meal on a lazy Sunday. Took my breakfast at 10am, had a light lunch at 12pm and then yummy tea break around 3pm. Hehehehe

Me and bf headed over to Ipoh Town at Brighton Square for some tea break session after loitering at Stutong. Didn't buy anything, Just wanna walk around.

Some nice toast, spring rolls, polo bun, ice plum juice and of course, when you're at Ipoh Town, how can you ever miss the white coffee kan? =)

Happy Sunday peeps~

Ling Loong Seafood at TopSpot

Last weekend me and bf decided to celebrate our monthly anniversary at a special place. Nothing exquisite or expensive, neither is there candlelight or roses. Just a simple seafood meal and it's our first time having seafood meal together! Believe that! We never go for any seafood meal before. Well mainly because I'm not a big fan for seafood. But why this time? Only one reason: I craved for assam fish!!!

So one week before the dinner, we drafted our plan for the night. Get several options and then hit down to one. The famous Ling Loong Seafood located at TopSpot. We even wrote out the dishes that we wanted to order. Hehehe =)

As a first timer ordering seafood, we were kinda lost. Haha! It's funny how the order session went. I wanted so much for assam fish but I never bother what fish they use or how they even cook it. I only know I want assam fish! When the waitress asked, "What type of fish do you want?" we looked at each other and went blank! My eyes screamed for Help! Hahahaha! I think somehow the waitress realized it and gave us her choice of fish. LOL At that moment I felt like I'm such a fail housewife (Well that's what I always tell people). Hahahaha!

Here is my man! I love to see him in his white Polo shirt. Handsome max! Hehehehehe =P

First dish: Oat chicken. Ok this one is definitely a wrong choice! Not nice at all! The chicken is so hard that my teeth felt like they're gonna fall anytime soon =.=

Second dish: Baby kailan cooked with oyster sauce. Superb!!! I love how other people cook the baby kailan. I think their oyster sauce must be like super cheap =.='''

Main dish of the night: My assam fish!!!!!!!! Yummmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeehhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! It's a little too spicy and bf doesn't really like spicy food. So I told bf to finish off the baby kailan and the oat chicken while I'll finish this dish. Hahaha!

Result after one hour of finger licking good! Slurps~~~~

The meal is awesome especially the assam fish!!! Love it to the max!!! And hey it's not even expensive! I was expecting it near to 100rm since the portion is kinda huge but I was so shocked when the bill came. ONLY RM51!!!!! Man I'm so gonna go back for more!!! This time I'll order oat prawn instead. Haha!
