For those who remembered my birthday, thanks for the birthday wishes. I would like to thank everyone... no need to list the names ya.. too long.. will end up a few pages. I was only upset that my best friend did not remember my birthday even though we chatted for some time in the morning. *weak smile* It's a small matter.. you're still my best friend. Yah... you down there... looking so fierce... how could remember yet forget my birthday... I'm so sad... :( *Just kidding* Chatting with you everyday makes my day a happy one... Cheers, pal!! You're the best!
My father has never bought a piece of cake for any of our birthdays. I can consider myself really really blessed as he bought not only a piece, but 12 pieces from Secret Recipe to make it a whole. It was expensive and I really appreciated it.
Look how the 'vultures' attacked my cakes...
This was how my cakes looked like after 15 minutes...
Thanks for being there for me! It was the most wonderful birthday I've ever had!!! God bless everyone!
Lunch was duck rice. Loving it! Crispy skin. Succulent and juicy meat. Tasty.
By now, I was totally bored. Bored until there was no words to describe how bored I was. I wanted to watch 'The Gem of Life'... no.. not on AOD but on dvds. I was not up for all these drama series so I ended up in front of the computer again. Doing practically nothing yet I felt that I had done something. There were a number of messages that I needed to attend to.
Dinner at youngest aunt's house. Hahahaa.... mouth-watering, better than satay Kajang. I only ate that plus cousin-in-law's yam rice... both also yummy-licious!! 'Tua Pek' ....we can be eating buddies since my favourite food is also your favourite food! Both of us ate at least 50 sticks of satay per person... whoops!
Tried a sip of Japanese 'sake' brought by cousin-in-law.
Cousin bro got the lion dance to perform in the house to ward off evil spirit.
Grandma wasn't really in a good shape. No appetite. Sleeping time totally out of our zone. Love you, grandma! You're the best and you're not useless... just old and wise.
When your cup of iniquity is full, let God decide. We love you as who you are... not what you're able to do or not able to do. Your disability will be compromised with our abilities. What you can't do, we will help you. You may forget and ask the same questions again and again, yet we will answer you patiently. I'm actually glad that nobody raises their voice against grandma for asking the same questions repeatedly. We love you, from the bottom of our hearts. We are glad to have such a loving grandma and we are proud to be your grandchildren. You have proven that education is not everything even though it may play an important role in this new era but love, patience, discipline and endurance are able to build a strong family. We will never neglect you no matter how bad your health deteriorate. We will care for you and shower you with our love till the end of your days. Your tears and physical aches etched deep into our hearts.
Left Penang with a heavy heart. I have the art of consoling myself. Drove to SP with a smile.
Went to get my lovely niece and nephew CNY clothes. Really last minute shopping.
My lovely prince...
Ahaks!! He was given a stern warning by his class teacher for kissing a girl in school... woots!! You're great! I love you, handsome prince! He's only seven, yet he has attracted sssoooo many girls... two thumbs up for you!
CAMERA! No one has done it. I don't see any camera around during family reunions or gatherings. Let's do it a different way this year. START SNAPPING! It's something to be remembered. Capture every moment. Look at the facial expressions. A picture tells a thousand words.
I had a pre-birthday celebration as I will not be around in Penang on the day itself. I love the attention that I'm showered with. Lunch is superb... I'm not talking about the food. I'm talking about the person I'm with. It is better to be loved and pampered than to love someone who's not even bothered about you.
We spent 7 long hours in Queensbay. I was given an early birthday present, too. A beautiful, white, lovely and lacy elegant dress from Elmstrends Boutique. The dress definitely cost a bomb or should I say, a hand and a leg. I love it very much.

Cheezy wedges.. after one to two pieces it didn't taste that nice anymore. Kinda salty but I still enjoyed the wedges...

I shouldn't have demanded for...
I shouldn't have asked for...
I shouldn't have forced...
I shouldn't have said...
I shouldn't have typed...
I shouldn't have voiced out...
I shouldn't have been so...
I shouldn't have pushed...
I shouldn't have pestered...
I shouldn't have hoped...
I shouldn't have think about...
I shouldn't have stepped into...
I shouldn't have looked for...
I shouldn't have entered into...
I shouldn't have been so stupid...
I should have remained quiet
I should have controlled myself
I should have kept it to myself
I should have known where I stand
I should have realize my mistake
I should have seen it coming
I should have built it
I should have been more positive
I should have let time tell
I should have been more understanding
I should have listened
I should have known I don't deserve to have him

Went to Tesco Extra to get groceries. Parked the car... then saw something shocking... a man came down from a motorbike, went to a car with the front passenger side window down, half of his body went through the wide open window, grabbed the lady's handbag and then hopped onto the motorbike and sped off... It took less than 30 seconds. This was the third time already. Reminder to myself... not going to carry a handbag.. just stuff everything into the jeans pocket... if the guys can go out without a bag, why should girls carry such a heavy handbag? Stupid skirts... no pockets. Then again, if skirts got pockets then it will slide down to the floor after a few steps of walking or worse, it will tear. Come on... think.. think of a way where I do not have to carry a bag out. My wallet can't even fit into the pocket. How to stuff three handphones into the pocket? Easier.. no need to go out. Stay at home. That's the safest unless it's time to die then even the roof will cave in or the ceiling fan will just drop on you or the tv or computer will explode in front of your face.
I'm looking forward for Chinese New Year and my birthday! I wonder how much will my red packets shrink... but I'll have a great week... SEVEN DAYS OF HOLIDAYS and EATING non-stop. Got my 2 kg of prawns from Teluk Kumbar, ordered directly from the famous prawn-catcher. Big ma bout 3 kg of reared prawns... not as tasty though... I can definitely survive with so much prawns. Steamboat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Hopefully I don't have to crash into Old Town this year to have supper. Hahaha.... it was fun though to crash into a restaurant... demanding for food! I should try going to the banks and demand for money... eh.. that will be robbing the bank in the broad daylight...how long will I be jailed huh?
Prayerfully all plans will fall into place. Sis and HB, both of you will miss all the fun this year... and we will miss having both of you around. I'll be so 'lonely' even though I'll be surrounded by the huge crowd of family members... too many relatives. Mostly, I don't know how to call them... just call as soft as possible since they don't pay much attention. I just want the 'ang pow' then I'll make myself disappear among the sea of relatives.
*Screaming out of frustration* I won't be able to get my JL drug fix for another whole week until I come back... *sobbing* Crying crocodile tears... hahaha. I LOVE YOU and I'm gonna MISS YOU A LOT!
Penang is ranked the 2nd a must-visit place. I've been staying in Penang for about a quarter century and I'm complaining there's nothing o'er here. Just shopping, shopping and shopping. There's no Disneyland, no water theme park, no Legoland, no ice-skating rink anymore, no Snowhouse. Char koay teow is the best selling hawker food... and yet I detest it! I won't even eat it if there's no other choices. Yikes... I complain too much.. should learn to be contented with life. Penang is indeed a peaceful place. Can find anything in one small little island unlike Langkawi. Still remembered how I drove around and ended up in the supermarket just to buy drinking water.. the hotels don't want to supply me with drinking water. Drink their water I'll be penniless... so expensive! Nothing to eat in Langkawi...
Signing off now... going to work out in gym.

A RM 200 birthday voucher. How kind of Goldheart... really the sales and marketing team has a heart of gold. How naive I can be.... turn to the back and read the whole lot of terms and conditions... I have to spend a minimum of RM1000 to be able to use that voucher. Hey!! That's not sincere... you'll still make mega bucks out of that sales... You think I don't know the cost price of gold, white gold, platinum, diamond and titanium? I'm into these stuff... forget it then! I don't plan to buy any diamond this year unless other people buy for me...
Ash... : You just need to hold on to the pot and you'll get all the luck.
Wei... : Eat a lot of pork and get lucky.
Fiq... : The luck is in the pot.
Ying..: Look for the pot filled with luck.
Sze... : There must be something in the pot which makes you feel lucky to find.
Hong : Is there such a thing as a lucky pot?
There's more but I can't remember them. All of them ended up in fits of laughter so can't really get the words out. It's fun to hold a job where there's a lot of laughter.

Chicken... also my favourite.
Imagine me at the wet market... you'll never see me in any of the wet markets in Penang. It's too dirty, too smelly and I have no idea how they weigh their items. Use gram and kilogram lar... I cannot understand kati and ounce. Remembered trying to buy pork once, the aunty asked me which part of the pig... I only know the head and the tail, the rest... it was history. I never buy pork anymore and I don't eat pork except for the 'bak uan' and 'bak kua'
I was not the least tired even though I've worked round the clock coz' I was looking forward to... at the last minute I decided not to.. but in the end I still... Couldn't control the car... it just veered towards that direction... I wanted to go but at the same time I didn't want to...I was fast. It was done within 15 minutes... It was the fastest I've ever done... now I feel bad... I ended up with...1 beautiful, soft, pastel-coloured blouse, 1 white blouse and a dark brown Hush Puppies t-shirt.
It was the fastest trip to Gurney. 45 minutes only. Within 15 minutes, my pocket had RM200 less... will not shop anymore for this month. Change spending style. Shop whole year round then won't feel the pinch in the pocket. No need to shop till I drop during the Chinese New Year. This year's SALES is lousy. Nothing nice on the 70% discount. Merchants out there, I think most of you have felt and are feeling the pinch of the economic meltdown. It will be in full blow immediately after the Chinese New Year. God, shield me please! Anyway, just charge it to the plastic card. The cash didn't go anywhere... I think that's how ppl think when they swipe their plastic cards and when the bill comes... ho! Ho! HO! *faint* I tried that before so I know...
Had dinner in A&W. Coney dog was not so nice anymore... but enjoyed the chicken sandwich. Oi! No product control manager arr? Root beer always finish or said machine spoil! How to do business like that? Want to hire me to run your fast food restaurant?

Wednesday - Anything soupy with noodles
I sound jobless.. but I'm not! My working life starts when most people are looking at the time and feeling happy that they're going home after a few more hours. Then, when most people have reached home and resting... my engine just started running at full speed... but it's FUN!!
