Feeling Blah

I think PMS hit me really bad this month. I practically bite people's head whenever I'm annoyed! It doesn't help that I'm overwhelmed with guilt everytime after I snap. And believe me, counting the sheeps do not help either.

I woke up very late today. And since I was already very late, I decided to have lunch first before going to the office. I went to Bakerzin at Bangsar Village. I used to frequent the joint, as you might recall me talking about it, the salmon pasta and strawberry juice, as well as the sinfullicious desserts. Today, as I browsed through the menu, there was no creame sauce salmon pasta. There is aglio olio with option to add salmon for another RM6 and there is mushroom pasta with sauce.

I had to explain to the waiter twice of what I wanted because the first time he said they do not server such dish. After the second time asking his supervisor, he told me they are going to make the dish for me. He he he... When the pasta came, the first bite was heavenly as was the first sip of the strawberry juice. Although the juice is a bit more on the sour side this time around, it complements the creamy sauce that sauteed my tounge and palate.

Upon receiving the bill, I was surprised to see the total. I paid anyway. When the waiter came back with the balance I offhandedly asked about the price and told him I used to pay much less, and briefly explained that everytime I come over I would ask the same pasta and the same drink. I also said that there was no mushroom in my pasta when he was charging me a RM23 pasta with mushroom cream sauce with additional RM6 for salmon add-on. He asked me to wait and he'll check with the kitchen. While waiting I sipped the plain water provided, lazily. He came back and told me that I was right and he'll return me the difference. As he put the folder in front of me, he thanked me profusely. :-p

And Jade is a happy, satisfied cat. And the cat is sooo ready for lurve... :-p

p/s: To a certain someone who has been the receiving end for the past couple of days, I am sooooooooo sorry. *muah muah*

Song for Today

This makes me move. Seriously.

Finger Eleven

I hold on so nervously
To me and my drink
I wish it was cooling me
But so far, has not been good
It's been shitty
And I feel awkward, as I should
This club has got to be
The most pretentious thing
Since I thought you and me
Well I am imagining
A dark lit place
Or your place or my place

Well I'm not paralyzed
But, I seem to be struck by you
I want to make you move
Because you're standing still
If your body matches
What your eyes can do
You'll probably move right through
Me on my way to you

I hold out for one more drink
Before I think
I'm looking too desperately
But so far has not been fun
I should just stay home
If one thing really means one
This club will hopefully
Be closed in three weeks
That would be cool with me
Well I'm still imagining
A dark lit place
Or your place or my place

I have this sudden urge to eat Big Mac or Whopper. And then have chocolate for dessert. Don't ask me why. I just do.

I'm missing Red. The courtesy car from Nissan is a Sentra. And I have just got to say that driving Latio is so much more fulfilling. I hope things will get done quickly. I'm wishing it to be completed by this week. Haih.

Sometimes you just wish that people who are close to you, especially your loved ones and close friends, would be more supportive. Though you hate to admit it, it does hurt when careless remarks or response are being given. But because you do not want to make things worse by admitting that you feel bad, you keep quiet or just let it go. Does being aplogised to help? Well... yeah. A little. But the hole has already been made by the nail. Even if you put a plaster in it, it's there. So, what do you do? You make do. And move on.

Anyway, another cousin is getting engaged in two weeks. We had family meeting yesterday with regards to the event. Having an Event Director as one of your family members can be an answer to your prayer OR it can also be a huge headache. You see, based on his experiences, he has all things planned out. How the movement should be, where to put the dulangs, where people should sit, etc. And because of the experiences as well, they feel they know best.

When I suggested that we should take into account the space available and the people that' going to be crammed inside the hall, I was told that he's going to get it done as planned. And before I could say anything else, he said he already planned how MY wedding procession will be. *GASP* I didn't even know when I'm getting married and he has all planned already?! ROTFL. Man... I don't care. If and when I'm getting married, everything will be done as I want it to be. :-p

Mak came back from Singapore yesterday Just before we went to the family meeting. A sat down session with her last night made me realise how bad Pak Long's condition is. I will need to read more on the Big C after this. All I know now, if he wants to come back to Malaysia, then the family should support his decision. Make him happy. Who knows? He might be more motivated to heal.

Some people are talking about alternative healing process. I do not know how effective this is. If any of you have any information or experiences in this, let me know. I am planning to go down to Temasek sometime in December. I will need to get my passport done first.

Yesterday also, just before Maghrib, I received SMS from Toonie, my soul sista, that her mother is warded in Damansara Speacialist. She was having difficulty in breathing. I went to visit and on the way it strucked me that I am at the age where I have to prepared emotionally, physically and financially. Anything could happen. And honestly, I am NOT prepared at all. Not even close. And that makes me feel sad.

I guess, the burger and chocolate is definitely on the menu tonight...

Song for Today: Apologize

This has got to be one of the best songs I've heard these days. Wonderfully heart-wrenching.

Timbaland ft. One Republic

I'm holding on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground
I'm hearin what you say but I just can't make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you're sorry
Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...

It's too late to apologize,
it's too lateI said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I'd take another chance, take a fall
Take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
But it's nothin new - yeah yeah
I loved you with a fire red-
Now it's turning blue, and you say...
"Sorry" like the angel heaven let me think was you
But I'm afraid...

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late
It's too late to apologize, yeah
I said it's too late to apologize, yeah-
I'm holdin on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground...

Review: 30 Days of Nights

I went to watch 30 Days of Nights last week. I've always love the idea of being a vampire, regardless the blood drinking neccessity. But seriously, I hate the vampires in the movie.

Eversince I knew what vampires are, their mystique and sensuality. The movie did not carry any of those qualities. These vampires were viscious and cruel and evil. They do not hypnotise their victims to go under their spell they just attack and instill fear in them. In fact, I don't think they even have enough time to be frightened. It was horrible.

As far as the story goes, the story line is pretty straight forward. It's derived from the horror comic written by Steve Niles. It's a story of a group of vampires went rampage over a town in Alaska which was not getting sunlight for 30 days. Vampires. UV ray. So, it's basically heaven for the carnivores and hell for the townspeople. It tells you a story how these people survive, or not, the month of blood and terror.

Of course, there could not be a total happy ending in the movie. Being a vampire fan myself, I somehow knew already that someone will have to sacrifice her/himself to save humanity and beat the beasts. Of course it has to be the hero la kan.

The only question that I had was that, why didn't the vampire disintegrate to ashes at then end of the movie when the sun rised? He only went blackened like a pieace of wood that had been burnt. Liar, liar, pants on fire.

If you look for continuing the image of Dracula in Bram Stoker or in fact, Angel the vampire with soul, this is not the movie to watch. The way the vampires attacked the humans in the movie is similar to the way the virus-infected people cum zombie in Resident Evil.

I don't give stars or rate movies like these. I would just say, go and watch if you don't mind watching a predictable ending.

..and later in the evening...

So, my crown is bouncy and shiny now. Soft, smooth and silky. I sound like ad on TV.

Let's talk about money. No one in their right mind in the world won't be concern about 'em green papers. I know, I know. All harta dunia. But without it, it can be quite difficult. Because money talks.

Yes, Jade is being materialistic again. With a reason, of course. Besides, I'm just being practical. Why do you work anyway? For money right? And why do we need it? To pay our bills, house and car. To ensure our kids get the best education they can. To fulfill our parents dreams that they put aside when they brought us up. All that requires money. It's just practical.

So it all comes back to this. How do I get more of them? What should I do? How can I earn more by doing something that I like? Is there anyone out there who's willing to give me the opportunity? Those are the questions that I ask myself almost every day. I realise having nine to five job, or rather eight thirty to five thirty job will not be able to give me everything that I want. I need to do something else. But where do I start? How do I start? Can someone show me the way?

Owh by the way. If you have any MLM ideas whatsoever, let's not. I rather not. Please.

ps: I am thoroughly enjoying my new hair. Merci beaucoup, mi amor.

pps: I had it done at MonsoonID in Hartamas Shopping Centre. The damage? RM309. I went there instead of the branch in OU because they have lesser crowd. To quote the stylist, "Good for you, bad for us because less customer mah..." But he, the stylist, was very, very good. He's detailed and precise. I like his work. Capal Perak likes his work.

Saturday Outing

I'm in the midst of getting an upgrade. Courtesy of Capal Perak. Bak kata orang dolu-dolu, kecil tapak tangan, nyiru saya tadahkan. He said he wants me to feel beautiful. But I suspect it's his need to see his girl looking like the japanese models and artistes that he drools upon. Too bad I can't get any skinnier or fairer, eh? ROTFL. But don't tell him I say this, because he will be supremely insulted. :-p

I cannot keep still. It has been two hours and my legs are cramping. Duh. I am using his MacBook, blogging while waiting for the chemical to set. And I chased him out of the salon. Go la jalan-jalan I said. He went for about 10 minutes and came back saying there's nothing to see. We're in Hartamas Shopping Centre. Reason being, I'm running away from the weekend crowd. But seems like it does not do any favour to his lordship because there's nothing to amuse him.

Had to stop for a while just now to wash off. Saw his silhouette through the sheer curtain separating the washing area and sitting area. He left the salon to go out again. Kesian. I did warn him it's going to take hours. But he wants the adventure.

I'm bored. Seriously. More chemicals are being put on my hair. Mati la mak.

Tomorrow, there's a family gathering. BIG family gathering on my father's side. That means, all the aunties and uncles, the cousins and second cousins, nieces and nephews. All under one roof. This year it'll be in Setiawangsa. I'm thinking of cooking pasta to bring to tomorrow's potluck. Mak agrees because it's the fastest, easiest meal to do. Not to mention I make a very good bolognese sauce. Just throw everything into the pot.

I have the urge to.. urmm.. pee. Man... this is a torture. My hair is being steamed now. Ouch. Ouch. Auww... Can feel the hot air on the back of my neck. Should adjust my head a bit. Ouch. Okay, that should settle it, even if I look a bit short-necked. Ha ha ha.. Jade is getting cuckoo because she cannot go and relieve herself.

I wonder why the steamer looks different now. You know the hose to your vacuum cleaner? Hmm.... they attach that to the steamer machine and the steam is oozing out from it. I look like a cartoon character on Disney Channel. Steam is coming out from my head. All around my head, in fact. Ha ha ha.. ROTFL.

Hmm... come to think of it... it's minor facial too, since the steam sort of envelope my face as well.

He's back. He's so bored now he's plugging his iPod and reading. I am left on my own device. Muahahaha...

I shall update again later this evening...

Song for today

This song is too close to home... It's my current favourite! ;-)

Colbie Caillat

Will you count me in?

I've been awake for a while now
You've got me feeling like a child now
'cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tinglies in a silly place

It starts in my toes
and I crinkle my nose
where ever it goes I always know
that you make me smile
please stay for a while now
just take your time where ever you go
The rain is falling on my window pane
But we are hiding in a safer place
under cover staying dry and warm
you give me feelings that I adore

It starts in my toes makes me crinkle my nose
where ever it goes I always know
that you make me smile
please stay for awhile now
just take your time wherever you go
but what am I gonna say
when you make me feel this way
I just..mmmm

It starts in my toes makes me crinkle my nose
where ever it goes I always know
that you make me smile
please stay for awhile now
just take your time
where ever you go

duh duh duh duh duhda
duh duh duh duh dum
bom bo da da da da da bom
mmm mmm

I've been a sleep for awhile now
you tuck me in just like a child now
cause every time you hold me in your arms
I'm comfortable enough to feel your warmth

It starts in my soul and I lose all control
When you kiss my nose the feeling shows
cause you make me smile
baby just take your time now
holding me tight

Wherever wherever wherever you go
wherever wherever wherever you go
Wherever you go I always know cause you make me smile even just for awhile

First November

The sky is blue with patches of white cloud. It's going to be a beautiful day. The temperature in the office is so so low that I'm shivering at intervals.

I miss him. His new schedule allows us few minutes to talk over the phone everyday. And I miss him. And I know he misses me too.

He would wake up early in the morning and call me just before I go to work or when I was about to start the car. And I would immediately asked him why he woke up so early. In the beginning I think he felt a little akward being asked that way when I was actually worried that he wouldn't be getting enough sleep.

Today, I'm meeting him at noon though, for an errand.

The other day I caught him looking at me with that long soulful look of his. I asked him why but he just shook his head and smiled. Later he told me that he's getting dependant on me. He said he would feel something missing off his day and realised that he talked less with me on that day. I smiled and told him that I remembered telling him almost the same thing not too long ago.

We are getting dependant on each other. Our highlights of the day means we get to see each other or talk more over the phone.

It's sickeningly lovely that I do not know whether to feel happy about it or disgusted with myself. Disgusted in a good way, I mean.So it boils to the same thing. Being in love makes your eyes crossed at times you do not expect. Having someone to share this lovely feeling makes you smile even when you're feeling mad.

Half of me is wishing that this feling will last forever. Another half of me, the jaded half of me, knows that this is the plateau of the relationship; and one day it will all settle down, worse, dwindle down to nothing.

As I'm writing this, I wonder if I should leave this post in here or should I create another anonymous blog somewhere else. But, hey, this is me. I guess it's okay if my friends know my fears and joys, my sorrows and laughter.

Song for today

I am feeling a little melancholic today. Thoughtful sadness. :-p
But I'm not sad. I'm happy. Just that I pray this time it will really work out...

Only Hope (A Walk to Remember) movie soundtrack
Mandy Moore

There's a song that's inside of my soul
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
I'm awake in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands
and pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now you're my only hope

Sing to me the song of the stars
Of Your galaxy dancing and laughing
and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that You have for me over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope

I give You my destiny
I'm giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I'm giving it back

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope
