stpm 2007 time table..

Just came back from taking a stroll at the night market. Bought some junks and sweets. Today does not seem to be like Independence Day but more of a normal day for me.

General Paper is on Monday. So much facts yet so little time. I can't wait till 29 November 2007 to come! After that, I can have a good rest from all those killer papers.

Here's the STPM exam time table for this year. Had trouble downloading it so click on the site. =)

Part I and Part II

golden anniversary of malaysia..

Another eleven minutes, the skies in every single state of Malaysia will be decorated and at the same time polluted with fireworks. This is the only time when air pollution is allowed!

I love tomorrow so, so much. Everybody knows why. It's one of the days I enjoy being a Malaysian. =)

50 years is actually a long time. I don't know whether I would be able to be a 50-year-old, wrinkled woman in future. It's an achievement to be 50! So, what more can I say...

crystle the poser..

Crystle is the potential contestant for Malaysia's Next Top Dog Model. Below are the photographs from her portfolio.

Had fun dressing Crystle with a piece of cloth and a curtain strip last Friday. Notice how the strip was tied into a bow. I can even give her away as a gift during Christmas!

And this was the result of the 'photoshoot':

'Hey, I thought I am supposed to be Little Red Riding Hood?? How come my hood is BLUE?'

'Oh, can't complain much. I have to be the wolf so I can't wear the red hood.'

'Faster give me my food for being a good poser!'

'Phew! The awful costume is finally off!'

'What? Want another shot of me? This will be the last one. No more, okay?'

'Oi! Don't try to cheat me! One photo does not mean four shots in one frame!'

'I love sitting in the car! Okay, you can snap me since I am so happy!!'

That's about it. We took her to the vet yesterday and had her vaccinated. The funniest part was when the vet inserted the thermometer into her butt. She jerked so much she nearly fell off the table. Funny dog, she is.

save our rhinos..

Extra class for BM is on tomorrow at 9.30 a.m.. Feeling lazy when exam is just two weeks away. I am kind of worried though. Everything seems so unimportant.

I need a lot of sleep. Sleeping off my problems seems to be the only way to get me away from them (that is if they do not start appearing in my dreams and turn diabetic-inducing dreams into nightmares).

On another note, I am supporting Honda's Campaign in Protecting the Almost-Extinct-Sumatran Rhinos.

So, if you are a great animal lover, do not hesitate to put the Rhino logo on your blog as proof of support towards the campaign.

crystle's first bath..

Crystle had her first bath yesterday! Look how wet she is!

'Oh, I can't believe I let them do this to me! Now I look so UGLY...'

'I am going to eat your hand. Yummy, delicious looking fingers. It's paw licking good!'

Crystle's in delusion after her bath. Maybe we accidently soaked her brain and her nerves gone haywire!

Anyway, she still looks fabulous, doesn't she? Her fur needs trimming though. What style should I give her? Skin head? Punk style? Or maybe Botak Chin style?

the greatest place for your delicious meals..

This happened two days ago. The restaurant was so 'fantastic' and it blew me away.

So, there is a new place in Jusco. Formerly it was Wooden House and now it's Food and Tea Restaurant. So inartistic for a classy restaurant, right? My dad was planning to try out a new place since we were late and so, there we went. We could not complain more after what we, I in particular, experienced.

The sesame-filled glutinous ball with gingerly-weird soup.

It tasted like the one which pregnant ladies drink.

Red beans dessert

So thick like glue. I think if I need glue, I can use this. Beautiful coloured glue.

French toast, half-eaten.

My sister ordered this and it was surprisingly quite delicious since the rest of the food looked like they came from Mars and Jupiter.

The environment inside the restaurant

Now I truly understands what it means by the proverb, 'Do not judge a book by its cover'. It may look authentic, but the service and food and pricing said otherwise.

Don't know what Shanghai shredded noodles

Okay, the story started like this. We went into the restaurant at 9pm and my dad ordered pork chop rice and my sister ordered French toast. I ordered the simplest food: kaya toast. I thought I would be the one to get my order first. After all, toast is not so difficult to make right??

The orders came without my meager kaya toast.

Okay, never mind. I waited longer.

Finally it was 9.30 pm.

WHERE IS MY TOAST?? I was getting hungrier and my dad and sis were now two bloated creatures. At that point of time, a waitress asked us whether we have any second orders since they were about to close.

To which, my dad gave a clever reply: 'First order also hasn't arrive. How to have second order?' Good one. Then she hurried away saying she will rush my order. Another waiter approached us asking us the same question. I suspected they have the same script to talk to customers. Again, my dad repeated his answer. He hurried away too giving the same assurance to rush the order in the kitchen.

I was at my boiling point when one man in suit came over and told me something unbelievable and almost impossible.

He spoke in Cantonese saying, 'I'm sorry. We have got your toast ready but we dare not serve it to you since we have some problem with it.'

What problem?? Their kaya turned rotten? Or they ate my order??

They can actually tell me the truth! I can accept if they say they buy expired kaya for their customers. I wondered what they had been doing in the kitchen with my toast since they did not even have the courage to tell me that I could not have the toast. Were the cooks standing around the toast shivering and didn't know what to do? And made me wasted half an hour of my life waiting for it?

So in the end, the man in suit asked me to ordered something else. I deliberately mentioned something like, 'I think I want McD porridge.'

I seriously wanted him to hear that. And I think he did because he looked rather uncomfortable after that.

I ordered the Shanghai shredded noodles which has mediocre taste. The dessert I ordered was not thirst-quenching so I drank the soup of the noodles which was undoubtedly full of preservatives.

The banner of the restaurant located by the escalator

I got so angry that I snapped this photo to warn the public about not going in there. I am sure the food court is a better option for meals.

The full banner

Yeah, even I am on the verge of dying from starvation, I will not come here. I would have died with my eyes opened sooner waiting for my kaya toast.

My rating of this fantastic restaurant? 0.5/5.

P/S: I give 0.5 for the layout of the restaurant. Not because I love it very much. Oh, all of you who would like to know what it's really like can go there. You might be lucky enough not to have to wait for your food, but the mystery of the kaya toast remains unsolved.


I will never find out.

rest in peace, nano..

The demise of Nano, a friend of Nani and the rest of his great chums.

Nano's little coffin

Nano's freshly dug grave (left) next to Nani's (right)

Nano returned home to the Lord
on 12 August 2007,
leaving behind his loved ones, namely
Yvonne, Mork, N, Mindy, Nana, Dada, Didi, Kaka, Kiki
two strangers, Light and Missa.
May you rest in peace in the kingdom of God.

Cause of sudden departure remains a mystery. His shell turned soft yesterday itself and lost his appetite. We will always remember you, Nano.

It was by fate that we found her. Never would we expect to take her home as we were strolling at IKEA. See how skinny she is?


She had been the company of an elderly lady. Then she was sent to the Dog Pound where she was supposedly be dead by now. The story that I heard from Shu Ying, the girl who saved her out of the horrible place, was full of cruelty. All those memories that she had must have been painful. No doubt, she endured her sufferings and she had no one to turn to. That shakes her personality a bit from being a bubbly, fun-loving dog, to a shy and more passive character.

The previous owner dumped her into the Dog Pound where she was starved before supposedly being put to sleep after seven days.

It is really sad to know there is such a place. Whoever works there must not be a dog lover. I have a mission to accomplish:
