Of Starbucks & Hoegaarden

Image
It's finally 31st of August! Malaysia's National Day! Means public holiday. Yay to everyone cos we can sleep til no time tomorrow morning~ Remember to off your daily alarm alright? Hehe =) So while everyone is partying outside, I am sitting at home trying to update my blog to my latest daily life. I realized I've been really slack this year. My number blog posts are so......................pathetic!
So what is it with Starbucks and Hoegaarden? Let's talk about Starbucks.
I received a tweet few weeks back, on a Friday night, asking for drink session. Starbucks has always been Fahriee's favourite hangout place. So I joined him that night together with Cyril. Just the 3 of us and our Starbucks. Be it ice blended or frappe or whatever they have in the list. I didn't want to go for coffee so I had my very first Chocolate Cream Chip. 
My first expression when I took my first sip? AWESOME! Forgive me but yes, that was just my 2nd time stepping and sitting at Starbuck…

Sematan Trip During Raya

Image
3rd day of Raya, also the last day of Raya holiday. In the morning, I followed Sui Yin and the rest to visit an uncle's house. None of us know him except Yin. Haha! We were there just for the sake of rendang. But what disappointment splashed onto us. No rendang =( Only cakes and cookies. Nu! I've been craving for rendang ever since Ramadhan started. Didn't get to visit Fahriee's house cos he was away. Haiya! So sad there's no rendang this year.
After the visiting, the guys sent me home and they went for lunch at Siang Siang. Initially I didn't want to follow them go Sematan for day trip. But the kids pestered me so much that I had to give in. Hehe =) Yes kids can always make me nod my head. Never ever use kids to ask permission from me =P
And so the guys came back to pick me up after lunch. We all went up in Martin's car. The poor Vios. Skirts were all ruined after the trip. Hehe =)
Sisters! Look like me or not? Haha! So I'm being corrected by Kim. The…

First Fruit Cake

Image
So, Raya has finally arrived! How did you spend your 4 days holiday? As for me, I tried to pack my schedule with as many activities as possible. But in the end, what I did was only to stay up late til 2-3am every night =.='''
A week before Raya arrive, I asked my mom if she wanna bake cake. I've never bake fruit cake before. If you followed my blog, you will know that I only bake butter cake. Mom has yet to teach me how to bake fruit cake. Though as estimated, the recipe should be about the same except there's fruits being added. 
Mom agreed. On the second day of Raya, my mom was also on leave. We decided to do some baking in the afternoon. Ingredients were all being purchased 2 nights before. I won't write out my mom's recipe. Hehe =P
After about an hour of preparation, the cake is ready to be baked!
Mixture of sugar, butter, flour, cocoa powder and of course, dried fruits. The smell of cocoa powder is very strong which I kinda like it. Makes it more choc…

Shopping Is Happiness

Image
There was a phrase that says "Whoever that said money can't buy happiness, doesn't know where to shop!" Well, I kinda agree and disagree. Haha! Of course, pure happiness such as love can't be bought with money. But then again, there are just some types of happiness can be bought with money. Such as SHOPPING!
Last weekend I shopped almost all over Kuching. Friday night I went for grocery shopping with mom at the newly opened Everrise at 4th Mile. It was renovated til so nice! The lights were so bright and the place feels much bigger though it's actually the same size. After mom bought her stuff, we went opposite, Boulevard.
I wanted to look for shoes and my computer mouse. And since mom has yet to see Boulevard's new phase, I suggested us to shop there while waiting for time to pick my bro. There, I managed to find myself a normal looking mouse. Friends all told me Logitech is good. Oh well, since the price is reasonable, I got myself one at Boulevard IT …

Yong's 15th Birthday

Image
Finally I managed to transfer the photos that were stuck inside the Fuji camera's internal memory. There was no cable so the photos had been stuck there for months. Until, suddenly my brain decided to work and I transfered them into the memory card. Ho ho ho! 
Yes! Delayed post since May!!! 3 months! Heck!
Right. So it's my bro's 15th birthday. A simple one at home. I wonder how this boy grow up so fast. It's like it's just yesterday he walked into St Joe primary school. And today he's preparing for PMR. Time sure waits for no one eh. 
There you go. He must be wishing for straight As in PMR. 1 more month to go before the big day! Yooo!

Happy birthday there little brother~

I know I've been procrastinating about blogging but I will try to update as often as possible. Past few weeks had been busy with dance performance. Shall write another post tonight if the Photobucket allows. Somehow the system went a lil haywire. The edited will not appear even though it&…

15th July 2012

15th July 2012. The day everything ended in storm. The day I never expect to come so soon. Way too soon. Way too fast. Way too short. Way too sudden. It could have been any other day. But because of certain stuff that I did, it happened on that day....

Exactly 8 months ago, we started to talk as friends for the first time. You sent me the first sms. And since that day, you text me almost everyday. At first I was kinda reluctant to contact with you. But soon after, we tend to get closer. There's this spark that existed between us. Yes, existed. Because it's no longer there. Not for my case but for your part.

I remember the first time we spent the whole day together. Well not exactly the whole day but from noon til night. At Sunday market. It was then that we both realized we had this common bridge in between. I can replay everything that happened there and then as if it's just yesterday. No strings attached. Just friends. Merely friends who knows nothing about each other b…

Rainforest World Music Festival 2012

Image
I've been procrastinating about everything. Way too many stuff happened lately. I'll be posting about them later. While I'm just here to update about my first time at Rainfest. After so many years, it's my first time partying at RWMF but sadly, it leaves the worst memory ever...
Story cut short. I went with Kent to Rainfest. Ticket was bought online few months back. We head up after having lunch. Um...more like lunch in car cos we were running out of time. Reached there when the hot sunny sun came out, nevertheless, we walked from Santubong resort to Cultural Village.
A photo just to prove that I was there =)

First stop: The theatre. We were glad to found air-cond room. It was burning hot outside. There, we get to play the angklung. Angklung is a traditional music instrument made of bamboo and originated from Indonesia. It's carved according to different pitch then tied onto a frame. How do you play? You shake the whole thing!

There, er....can't see the angklu…
