I guess I should, by now, start cleaning up the home shoe rack and weed out all those old shoes. Those need to go. I just want to say that.

So, probably not many people know how I really love Clazziquai's music, ever since Instant Pig. In fact, Instant Pig is always one of my most favourite albums of any artists, Korean, Western, local or aliens. Anyway, Clazziquai has just released a very beautiful album appropriately called 'Blessed'. It's been a very long time since Mucho Punk.
Clazziquai is very much jazzy house music. The also experiment in electro. However, I love their jazz-house music the best. My most favourite songs off Blessed are:
- Still (여전히)
- Brown Gold Eyes
- Love Right
In fact, this album is full of gold. This is rapidly coming to become as, in my personal opinion, one of Clazziquai's best album so far. The songs are just entertaining and beautiful!

Went to KL Festival City and found this cute little treasure at Kaison:
Excuse the fat fingers. They belong to an alien.
I think I can never ever go to Kaison. Kaison has like the cutest and prettiest stuff I've ever seen! And their products are also of good quality and affordable too. It's like almost 60-80% cheaper than their counterparts like Kinokuniya etc that sell notebooks, boxes and other paraphernalia.
So, yeah, go to Kaison when you are depressed. It will surely brighten up your day!
By the way that cute notebook will be my annual daily planner, I haven't bought one since ages. I've been such a practical girl and use planners gifted to me from friends and family which are from companies.

If there is one thing I hate the most in the world (well, there are more than one thing, but I need to use this to emphasize on this issue) is how Malaysians love to kowtow on so-called VIPs aka those Datuks, Dato's, Tan Sris and so on. Why am I talking about this? I am not, by all means, anti-establishment or anti-social or anti-whatever. However, I am against the Malaysian idiocy mentality of 'must-treat-these-VIPs-more-special-since-hey-I-don't-even-know-what-they-contribute-to-society-but-they-are-indeed-rich-enough-to-pay-for-those-Datukships'.
Why am I saying this and what does this have to do with the name of the restaurant mentioned in the subject? For one, my family and I have received numerous secondhand citizen treatments due to stupid Malaysians and their ass-kissing attitude. Oh and not forgetting those so-called VIPs who are all about red carpets, police escorts, give-way-even-passing-through-red-lights-and-causing-almost-accidents-on-the-road-and-traffic-congestion and more special treatments.
My family and I happened to make a day trip to our beautiful albeit confusing Melaka a few days ago during that one day holiday. We took a short boat ride along the river that cut through Melaka town. Wait, the river should be more appropriately called huge drainage. It's filthy and smelly and full of rubbish like plastic water bottles. Anyway, we saw this huge, almost Malay traditional-like gray building next to Morten Village (Kampung Morten) with a huge sign that says 'Restoran Melayu' (Malay Restaurant).
So, we decided to have dinner there since it looks welcoming and comfortable. And we'd love to enjoy the river-view. Alas, after more than 30 minutes trying to find the place in Melaka's twists and turns (Melaka township seriously need to re-assess their road signs, it's stupider than shit and they are of no help to those who are unfamiliar with the town), we found the restaurant and with our hungry tummies, proceed to take a seat in the almost empty restaurant.
The almost emptiness should've given us a huge clue of how shitty the restaurant is. First, it's not that clean. The table have stains and the floor has rubbish and food stuff. Secondly, service is almost pathetically shittier than shit. Now, why am I being so vulgar about food? It's because we get to eat about almost 1 hour later, and while we could stand the wait, it's the service staff attitude that pissed me off the most.
After we proceed to order, our drinks came like almost 20 minutes later (how difficult it is to make drinks when the restaurant only have the VIPs, another 3-4 people in a group and us?). While we stave off our thirst, a stupid waiter came and proceed to tell us, 'Oh wait people, we have a bunch of VIPs so you guys are the least of our priorities and will be served when we feel like it'.
This stupid guy didn't say it that way but yeah, he did say that they need to serve the VIPs first, we will be served later. I was already past my limit point and I felt like shouting obscenity to them already at that point. Then, the best is, when the food came, for the price of shit, my father and brother-in-law were served 5 small pieces of chicken meat in their soups. I repeat. 5 small shitty pieces of chicken that can barely feed a child. And these pieces have lots of bones too, as if we can chew off those bones.
And. Apparently, they've mistaken our order and served the table that came after us first, making our orders the last order of the night. And we were given a measly 5% discount that couldn't even cover that 6% governmental tax. This restaurant and their service staff are a joke.
So a lesson here guys, if you are visiting Melaka, stay away from Restoran Melayu near Kampung Morten. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever be deceived by the design of the place and the atmospheric view of the river and decide to experience first hand the shit they gave us.

Right now, right at this moment, I'm supremely angry and pissed. But I have to hold it in. I will. Just another 22 months to go and all hell will break loose. Never underestimate with my patience and how deep a grudge I can hold. Just you wait. Things will come to light and justice will be served. And revenge is best served cold.

May Allah SWT protect Mama from all bad things especially unfairness and cruelty and may Allah SWT grant her happiness, health and ease of heart forever!
I love you Mama and I always have your back, no matter what!

I went to a shopping mall with my little sister B and my parents a few days ago. I wasn't even planning to shop for goodies, since my budget is not permitting and I'm preparing to go to Teluk Intan for my 4 postings this year.
Alas, while I'd like to blame this on B, it's 100% my own fault for buying these ridiculously cute stuff. My shopping haul includes - 2 sleeveless chiffon top (one in light beige and another in black) a pair of really really really cute red ballet flats, a black skirt (okay, this one is a regret-buy since I didn't test it and it didn't fit me), one dark purple tank top, 2 dress pants (one in black and another in dark brown) and 2 pant-leggings (in light apricot and black).
I notice I am buying lots of brown, blacks and neutral colours these days. Is this a sign that my taste has gone awry or that I'm getting *gasp* OLDER?
Anyway, my really really cute shoes!
I also gotten a new pair of prescriptive glasses! I haven't changed mine in 2-3 years and it's time to get a new one since my vision is not getting any better.....
Aren't they just too cute? They are very light and I love these!!!

I'm officially on break since forever. And what do I do? Waste time. Didn't even help my Mama with house chores TT___TT SO LAZY! I'M A TERMINAL COUCH POTATO!!!
Anyway, I'm really addicted to these songs this past few days:
I have my love-hate moments with Wonder Girls. I love lots of their songs off their albums, but not most of their title tracks. Girlfriend is such a good song. And this Wonder Love really reminds me of Christmas. While I don't celebrate Christmas, I love the feelings the song conveys. Simple love. I love it. Btw, WG followed me on twitter, that really made my day (such a kpoper, that I am LOL!).
2PM, as most probably know by now, is my only love from kpop ^^ Been listening to them since 2009 and these days, most of the members are venturing into composing their own songs. By now, 4 already released their self-composed songs, via digital release, concerts, albums, singles, OSTs and songs for other artists.
Lee Junho (I call him my Ho Bitch or Nuneo ;p) and Kim Minjun (aka Jun.K or formerly known as Kim Junsu) have released lots of songs (I think I'll make a post of 2PM's self-composition later) while Nichkhun Horvejkul and Ok Taecyeon are just releasing their songs. Well, Khun is the newbie here, since Taec already shared 3 of his songs in their concerts.
I have to say, I really love Khun's song 'Let It Rain'. The lyrics are simple yet so meaningful. And in FREAKING ENGLISH! So, it's one of the rare times I can actually understand the song without having to wait for translation.
Taec's song, the one I am sharing up there, is just awesome. The beat. The lyrics. I especially love the part when he sang, 'Your class, down below. 2PM, up in the sky'. Way to go Taec! Tell them what it's like ^^

It was my birthday, my 22nd birthday, a few days ago and my BFF Ms. Princess (BFF is the new word of the day, it's disgusting, but it's easier to type ;p) brought me to the place of my choosing, so naturally, I'd choose Levain, a new place I just discovered thanks to dear Rini. It's a really nice place tucked in a middle of hustle and bustle of KL city.
Anyway, we shared some desserts and I had a really superb Japanese chicken curry rice. As usual, I asked for extra hot and man, do they redefined the word spicy there. So many little bits of birds-eyed chillis to get my eyes crossed. Ms. Princess got the special menu dish called....Wait, don't exactly remember but it was a dish of aglio-olio pasta, wedges and lamb chop. The lamb chop looked pretty chewy to me, but alas, I didn't taste it since I'm allergic to food other than vegetables, seafood, chicken and occasional beef.
The ambiance of the place is pretty cosy and can be romantic at the corners with the lights down low and comfy sofas. We sat smacked in the middle of the place (the air-conditioned area since I am also allergic to fresh air), so hash that romantic setting. It was fun, we had a nice talk and the food is plentiful and not as pricey as one would expect from such a nice place as this. The staff is also cheerful and nice. Not to mention, the other facilities like tissues, fork & spoon, condiments and cold drinking water are never in short supply here.
My only rant would go to the parking fee. We didn't even parked at the allotted parking space of Levain's (parked somewhere else) and the stupid idiot parking attendants charged us RM5. What the hell? Unless it's Levain's or you parked our car, why should we pay you idiots?
Strawberry.....Well my memory fails me. It's a strawberry dessert made of light sponge cake, whipped cream and strawberry coulis.
Japanese chicken curry rice. Yum yum!
Beryl's chocolate truffle cake. It's a slice of heaven.
