i baked cookies^^

Boredom at home can sometimes lead to wonders (although it usually causes me an insatiable hunger and desire to munch and munch till my belly bursts -_-'')

Well, for today, boredom brought wonders to me!

I baked cookies!
To be exact, I baked DELICIOUS chocolate chip cookies!!

I swear its the truth!
My brothers came back from school and grabbed a bite of the cookies AFTER eating lunch.
And although they were already full, they gave thumbs up for my cookies!!

Yeah!! Cheers to me for baking wonderful cookies!

Unfortunately, I didnt take any pics of the process *sobs*
Actually, I dare not take any pics because I usually screw up the cookies I bake.
They usually end up super-hard and are hardly edible -_-''

Amazingly, I did a good job today!

Maybe it's the recipe, or maybe I'm getting to become a better cook

Rain is the MAN!

Finally, the night where Rain performed live in K.L arrived!!


Let's start of with a little details
before the concert started.

First a picture of me on the concert day^^

We got freebies from the sponsors of the concert;

1. Hotlink
- a poster

(ya..its the one where Rain has this 'not-so-cute' facial expression *sobs*)

- the gigantic hotlink hands to wave along to the music

which unfortunately wasn't fully utilized because no one can see 'the hand' in the dark

- a keychain which came free when I purchased a Rm10 reload card

2. LG
- free postcards with Rain looking super cute!!!!

3. Clear
- free shampoo samples

Well, its not much least its better than nothing.

Inside the stadium, things were pretty messy.
As my tickets are free ones from Carlsberg, I had to go to a special section right at the top of the stadium (3rd tier which means the furthest from the stage *sobs*)
Yeah..I was duped to believing my tickets were worth Rm402.

^the supposedly worth rm402 ticket..^

BUT, thankfully the seats were directly facing the stage and NOT at the side so the sound effect was fantastic!

Anyways, at 8.45pm, Rain came on stage to a horde of thousands of screaming fans!

Though I couldn't see Rain's face (unless I look at the screen),
BUT, at the very least, I got to see the whole picture of Rain performing with his dancers and the visual effects on and off-stage!!

Maybe I since its my first time attending a concert, I was totally blown away by the loud bass which resounded in the entire stadium. And since I was at the highest tier, I could feel the floor pounding with every beat of Rains' songs!
Sometimes the bass got so loud that I actually feared that the entire upper tier might fall off and crush the ppl beneath! LOL^^

To get a feel of what happened indoor,
[click here] to watch Rain performing 'It's Raining' from his 3rd album.

For every 2 or 3 songs, Rain would have a short break and chat with the audience. Well, its not exactly chatting, but yea..he was talking to the audience. And it was then that we all became his 'babies'!!

Ya..u heard me right! I'm Rain's baby!! (let's just ignore the fact that there were thousands of audience in the stadium, and imagine I'm the ONLY ONE there..LoL >.<) Not to mention, I got a kiss from Rain! (yea..a flying kiss XD wahahaha but a kiss nonetheless!)

Rain can really dance! His moves are slick and made every single girl in the stadium melt, because he is so HOT!!!
He danced to every single song and I salute his showmanship!
Imagine the fire on stage, the lightings, the laser beams, the multiple screens, and etc... I mean the props that they used on stage were amazing, the effect was breathtaking! And Rain's dance moves left the girls screaming (the screams went to a higher decibel when Rain does his Michel Jackson-like-crotch-holding-move! Wahahaha >.< ) Well, I have a few pictures of Rain taken from afar..*sobs*
^Rain putting on his sunglasses to the song Escaping the Sun^

^He's dancing!!^

Oh ya, let's not forget the moment where it rained in the indoor stadium! Actually I was a little disappointed because I had expected Rain to go topless on stage, and sadly that didn't happen *sobs* (and i blame the tight rules and regulation the gov impose on performers )

^pic is super-blur as its taken using my phone -_-'' ^
(In case you can't figure out the picture, the bright shining thing is where it rained on stage..)

So, I guess at the end of Rains' concert, all of us; the audiences, were left feeling high and happy ^^ (especially me) BUT i think some of them were left with half-deaf ears due to fanatic-high-pitched screaming from fans i.e those who sat around me. Hahaha^^
It's like sometimes when you get annoyed when someone talks loudly on the phone on the train. And in this case, I was the the annoying person screaming like mad and my high pitched voice caused much more damage to the ears..but it's a Rain concert, so please forgive my actions. Hehehe^^

Yeah~ Problems Solved!

I finally got my laptop fixed!

Both problems; virus & audio has been settled!!

How did I do it?

Problem 1 -Virus
Solution : Reboot the entire windows.

Yea...I had to deleted the entire windows and reboot the reformat the entire system. Well, of course my brother helped me out with this. My bros are such sweet creatures^^

Problem 2 - No Audio
Solution : Re-installing drivers and utilities after reformatting the system

Haha^^ I guess every dark cloud has a silver lining. Bcoz right after I reformat the whole windows, I had to re-install all the drivers for my laptop. And this time I did it without the help of my brother.
At first I thought the audio driver wouldn't load properly like the first time, BUT to my amazement, it did!!

I can't express my excitement when I heard the sound of a pop-up or the sound of windows shutting down! Lol..

So right now, my laptop is all good!
This time around, I'm extra careful as not do download anything from the net. All the programs that I need were all taken from my desktop at home and transfered to my laptop.

Now, the only thing my laptop lacks are games!!
But then again, games aren't really my thing. Unless its some RPG game like Final Fantasy..

Virus Alert! has only been a few days and my laptop is already infected. Guess I shouldn't have used my laptop to download stuff.
The next time i'll leave the downloading to my bros with our trustworthy desktop.

Although I have and antivirus running, I still got infected!!

Why?? Why oh why?

AND to make matters worse,
I wasnt able to delete the virus!
It has been running around my system since yesterday night, right after I had downloaded Rain's songs from some website -_-''

So my dad said the only thing to do is to reformat the whole system. Easily said,
BUT I don't even know how to reboot the system!!!
Let's pray my laptop will be fine.

Anyways, I broke up with the new guy 2 days ago.
It was the 2nd time I tried to break up with him and thankfully, this time it was successful.

Although I do like him, but due to my parents disagreement and 'emotional blackmail'
(they asked me to choose between them or the new guy, or something like that)
So, the obvious step I could take was to break up with the new guy.
But I must admit that I miss his calls, especially the long late night calls. Yet, it is wiser to break off before the feelings got any stronger.

After all, like my friend told me, parents will always be the one who loves you the most, so we should do our best not to cause them hurt and disappointment.

And now after I've broke up with him, I really got the time to think about what has been going on in my relationships.

Its hard to admit this, but I guess I'm really immature and selfish when it comes to relationships, I just wanna have fun and enjoy the moment(which is eerily similar to the love profile in the previous post)

Now, I think that what I have felt and done in the past few weeks after new year was a total mess.
My feelings towards the new guy was infatuation, not love.

Due to the infatuation that I felt, I hardened myself against feeling any emotions to my ex-boyfriend who is overseas, and caused him so much misery.
I am indeed the worst person in the world.

I still remember when I had my first boyfriend, I was so excited and told my friend about it. She congratulated and gave me an advice which goes,

LoVe iS NoT a GaMe

Back then, I thought I was fully aware of the meaning behind it. But now I realised that all this while I had played love like a game.
All this while my thoughts regarding relationships were,

If the relationship doesnt last, its ok.
But if it can continue, I would definately want it to make it last.

I guess that's a wrong thought to have in relationships. If a relationship isnt started to last, there's no point in starting it in the very first place, right?

It's Raining!!

I think everyone is well aware that korean-pop star RAIN(bi) himself is coming to Malaysia!!! And he'll be performing LIVE IN KL at the Bukit Jalil Stadium on the 27th of January 2007! (which is exactly 1 week away!!)

Gyaaah!! I jz cannot control my excitement! Ever since I watched the korean drama 'Full house', I have fallen in love with him!!
He's super kawaii in dramas, yet when he's on stage performing...He's HOT!! *drools*

I mean like look at his body! If that aint spelled H-O-T, you better get ur eyes checked!! BcozRain is THE MAN!! Wahahaha *evil laughter*

Anyways, this whole Rain-mania started while I was still working in Subang early this year where I found out that Bausch & Lomb was giving out free passes to watch Rain live in KL!

Well, being the usual me, anything that has the word 'free' definately catches my attention. AND, when its coined to RAIN!!! I was estatic! I knew there and then that I definately have to take part in the contest!!

But yea..there's a catch to it (after all, ntg in this world comes free)
To take part in the contest I had to purchase either a box of contact lens, or 2 bottles of Renu Multiplus Solution, and get attached the lids with an original receipt with the contest form.

So...I bought 2 boxes of lens and 2 bottles of multipurpose solution,
just to get 3 entry forms which = 3 chances for me to win a Rain concert ticket!

But it isnt that simple, I still had to put a creative signature to stand a chance to win! Since i'm not gifted in arts, my chances would be near to 0%...(at least I had thought so)

However, right now I have 2 tickets to watch RAIN!!!
Hehehe^^ I myself am going to the concert!!!

Instead of being all sad and gloomy when Rain performs in Malaysia, I'll actually be IN the stadium to hear Rain sing!!

I'll be there to actually witness his oh-so-hot-body with my own pair of eyes!!!

Whoa...that is jz amazing! I'm already so excited even before the concert !

I can imagine myself amidst the legions of fans in a packed stadium, screaming my lungs out till my voice would end up a off pitched the very next day.

Ohya, I forgot to mention that the 2 tickets I hv arent from the contest. They were given out when I asked my family to purchase 2 cartons of Carlsberg!!

Yup, my parents bought 2 cartons of beer jz to obtain those tickets!! But honestly, if it weren't for my friend, Meow, whom I knew when working in Subang, I wouldnt hv gotten those free tickets!

Anyways, regarding the Bausch & Lomb contest, someone called Miss T contacted and asked me to go to their office in Petaling Jaya to pick up my free ticket! (which means somehow my creativity is appreciated by some! Either that or very few ppl participated in the contest -_-'')

So all in all, I have 3 tickets!!

Thus, my whole family would be there at the stadiumto catch Rain!!!
3 tickets = Me, mama & papa
Bros = 2 part-time helpers at the concert bros somehow got jobs to be usherers during the concert night. Hopefully they wouldn't be stuck backstage when Rain is performing! Hahaha...

When was the last time u rode a bicycle?

This whole day has been yet another unproductive day.
I spent more than half a day wondering in MidValley with my dad doing nothing in particular; we were mainly walking around without an purpose. But I guess that's what window-shopping is all about; walking around doing nothing. -_-''

Anyways, I met my supervisor, Angie ,who got me my previous job as a promoter in Subang Parade (i.e the promoter for the 'I want a car' Contest) while I was there.
Guess what??

Of all things, she said my dad looks young! Kinda like my older brother. Then she added, some ppl might also think that he's my sugar-daddy!

Wha?? @.@

DO i seriously look like that kinda girl?

Wait a minute, now that the term 'sugar-daddy' came into picture, I can't help but to get
reminded of some experiences that are related to this term.

Back when I was working in Osim, there's always this 'uncle' who would always come into the outlet for a 'free' massage. Being a regular 'customer' he would always talk to me, and ask a lot of questions. Simple conversation with an old guy is not a problem with me (as long as u dont bore me with grandma stories)

BUT this man keeps asking whether I need a lift back home after work. SAying things like,

'Wow, u work the whole day here? Then u dont go back and bathe?'

Now that I think of it, he seems like someone who fits the 'sugar-daddy' profile 100%!

1. He likes talking to 'sweet young things'
(like me, of course! =P)

2. He likes buying things for girls
( he bought me a drink once)

3. He phones girls jz to chat.
( ya..he calls me once in awhile eventhough I've already stopped working in Osim. And I cant even remember why I gave my number to him the 1st place)

4. He must definately be a dirty old man.

Now that I'm talking about D.O.M or Dirty Old Men, let me jz share a story about ANOTHER old man I met when I was working in Subang last december.
I can still remember that this happened before christmas ( in fact the incident occured during my first week of work in Subang)

To begin with, let me explain the duty of my job. I'm kinda like a person-in-charge of the contest in Subang Carrefour. SO all I do is create awareness that there's such a contest going on, and help participants to fill up their contest forms

So imagine this,
I approached the D.O.M without knowing it, telling him about the conditions to take part in the contest. Since a conversation had already began, the D.O.M used it to his advantage and asked questions like

'Ur working part-time ah?'
'Do you have any off-days?'
'No? So you're spending ur Christmas working?'
'So pityful. Dont worry, I'll come visit you and bring u out..'

I was like err...@.@
'how do I get rid of this annoying man..'

Thankfully, someone wanted to take part and wanted a form. So I quickly closed all conversations with the D.O.M without saying bye bye (kinda like how u close down the msn conversation tab when u meet an annoying person)

Lucky for me, the D.O.M left the scene and never came back to visit me on Christmas.

Back to the title of my post,

When was the last time u rode a bicycle?"
For me, the last time I rode mine must have been more than 6 months ago. In fact it could have been more than a year!
The reason why I mention this is because I was spending this 2 days finishing the anime called Honey And Clover

Its a really nice and simple anime about love n life.
And as I completed the whole anime, I came to a realisation that life is very plain. The only things that really happens in our daily life are limited to :-

2. family
3. friends
4. love

And yet, there are times when we'll feel empty even though we have all 4 aspects above.


I think its purely because there's a 5th aspect to life which differs according to individuals. It something that I believe everyone has to find out for themselves.
Some find it through religion and god, others...
others like me jz waste time living life as it is.

And in the anime, this search for the answer is equated as a ride on a bicycle,
to see how far we can go without turning our backs.

Also, there is this episode about letting go.

In this case, its about letting go of an unrequited love.

A broken heart is kinda like a flowering plant which stem is half-broken. Initially the leaves and flowers on the upper part are still green and nice.
BUT, if u do not break off the upper part, the whole plant would wither because of its own weight. If the plant had been broken of at the point of injury, it would have continued to grow and bloom.
In love it is the same, if we have been hurt, had our hearts broken, there's no point in holding on for too long. If you do, you might end up like the plant. At least that's what I believe in.

But, love isnt that simple is it?
Oh well, life isnt simple. Its rather complicated.

the longest break

More than 1 month of not blogging! That has gotta be my longest duration of not blogging, EVER!

Over the past month and a half, I went through lots of things!
I met many many different people and forged new friendships.
The happenings in my life during this period has lead from one change to another, and I think that I'm constantly changing; personality-wise, mentally and a bit of physical changes (no..its not a boob job, but I think I lost some weight while I was working the last month^^ )

1. I broke up with my bf

This is the major change in my life. More than 3 months ago I was in love with someone. I shared and cared for him. I would say that I have had given my best to make him happy when he was still in Msia. I was a really good gf. (I know it sounds like I'm exaggerating about how good I am to my ex, but my close friends back in college would know the truth behind this statement. I think only they saw how good I was to him and all of them had intially thought I was being too nice, but now that I hv broken up with him, I think they were reather shocked.
None of them saw this coming, neither did my ex.
I know I'm an evil being who jz left a good man devasted in a cold land hundreds of miles away from Msia. But there's nothing that I can do to change the fact. I've already made up my mind and I shall remain adamant on being ONLY friends with my ex.
This change has brought upon concerns and advices from not only my family, but also my friends.

Back when I had initially broken up with him I was a complete mess, not bcoz I couldn't let go of him or anything like that, its jz that somehow I kinda got lectures from my parents all the time.
The reason I got lectured was bcoz I was being chased by another guy whom they deem is unfit and un-matched for me..i.e someone who is jz UN-everything to me.
But being borned under a sagittarian star makes me stubborn, and so i insisted in seeing the guy. This lead to a big hoo-ha in my family and all. Every night after work they would lecture me, talk me out into being too 'close' with him.
It was a whole mess. I'm telling you, back then my mind was never at ease. I was always under stress, thinking of solutions.. and to add on to the whole stress, my ex couldnt let me go.. I was mentally drained back then..

Thankfully now that I've finished working I have more time to myself; time alone to think about what has happened to me, time to analyse and think through the who I have becomed and also time for me to blog out my feellings.

Anyways, I got a new laptop which hopefully will serve me well^^
So this indirectly means more time for me to surf the net!!
