This post has been in my draft folder for the longest time. I think a short one will be better than nothing at all.
I think the hype for this white curry noodle has died down a little now. Rewind a month back, I see people posting this on facebook and instagram, searching for it as its constantly sold out. Thanks to my friend who generously gifted me with a packet during the hype, I get to taste it.
I have never been a fan of curry mee even-though I’m from Penang thanks to the sight of pig’s blood (black pudding) and other stuff in it. But because this is instant version, I can customize the ingredient! I think I actually cooked it the wrong way -__- the red packet should be added in last, not into the saucepan. Anyway, it taste really yummy and finally i can understand the popularity that comes with it.
I believe it will be such a great hit in other part of the world with Malaysian who misses home… This will definitely be able to satisfy the craving!
After another long hiatus ( I should seriously stop this trend), here I would like to share with you my humble eye-liners collection. A blonde post .. hehehe
I’ve been meaning to do this post for quite some time, but yea, procrastination got the best of me -_- I’m pretty sure I have more eye-liner that the above but just find them.
If you are interested, then read on..

Recently, I learnt a new word – Career Break. And that is exactly what I am on right now. Almost a month of being on a break and I’ve never been busier. Who would have thought -__- There are endless errand to run everyday yet, I try to put some “fun” time aside. Just some highlights from the past weeks. First up, spend an enjoyable day with these lovelies on a little pilot project. Also, as it was raining/drizzling, we got to board a cruise from Straits Quay to E&O all for ourselves. Woot! Private cruise trying to live the high-so life!
The arrival of my duckface nephew! So cute. Been spending everyday with him ever since and he is such a high achiever! Achieving milestone on the daily basis #crazyauntie
Took Marvel out to meet some of his doggy friends in the park. Arent they cute? Too bad its such a bad photo :(
During the public hols, I went to Sunway Lagoon for the first time with the gang! That’s one off my bucket list. Truth be told, it wasnt a really fun park. It was fun because I went with these folks Vuvuzela, DONE!
Last Friday, I joined my cousin for some drinks over at Helipad, KL. We were lucky because KLCC was in pink that night only. Just right before we left the house, it was pouring like mad, and we were like praying and crossing our fingers and toes that it will STOP RAINING PLEASE! It finally did just before we decided to leave the place and the staff allowed us to go up to the helipad. While up there, you can’t help but just say Wow at the view. Maybe due to the rain, the air was cold with soft winds, and a 360 degree view of KL, it was amazing.
My wish to sit quietly with a cup of coffee, reading a book seems to be quite far away at the rate that I’m going. There’s a few things I would like to do for myself prior to going back to the rat race. One of it is to update my blog more frequently which i am failing miserably at now -__-
September seems to always be a trying month for me as I remembered blogging a couple of jiwang post, mostly falling on the month of September.
Now we have officially enter October, it is again a month that had turned the pages in my life. I came across this saying sometime ago while reading some random travel article
”The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” —Saint Augustine
And had held it true to myself when it comes to the travel side of life. However, if we look at it in a different light, it can applies to different aspect in life. Say, if you are not willing to move out of your comfort zone and keep doing the same thing over and over again for fearing what’s out there, that will be all that you know. I’ve spoken to a handful of such “1-pager” people, and they sure can give you a lecture on stuff they haven’t seen/experience before, just because they know better. It’s this exact know-all attitude that is stopping them from exploring beyond the line. The sad part is, most of the time they will convince you with the same reason they convince themselves or rather comfort themselves that, they are happy enough, no point exploring more.
Which leads to me to this short story that a friend, Kurt shared a few years ago. Whenever I stumble in life, I will remind myself of this story. So here it is, I hope it will bring you a more positive outlook to this thing we call Life.
Good Luck, Bad Luck, Who knows..
Many years ago, in rural China, there was a farmer who lived quietly with his family on a small plot of land. His family was healthy and happy, but did not have much in the way of material possessions. They worked hard, together, tending to their garden and plowing their fields.
One day, the farmer awoke and discovered that his old quarter-horse, a horse that he depended on for years to plow his fields, had escaped through a broken fence and was nowhere to be seen. A neighbor came by and saw the farmer in his plight, and cried out at the bad luck facing the old man. The old man calmly replied, “good luck, bad luck, who knows,” and went about his business.
A few days later, hearing the thundering sound of hoofs outside his cottage, that farmer looked across a far away hill and saw a whole herd of horses making their way to his horse pen. His old trusty quarter-horse has indeed returned, and brought a few friends! The same neighbor, bearing witness to this amazing sight cried out “wow, what great luck you have!” The farmer calmly replied, “good luck, bad luck, who knows.”
The farmer’s son, seeing the wild horses sitting in the pen, decided to start breaking them in. It was tough work. One day, a stallion bucked and knocked him to the ground, terribly breaking his arm. It was a busy time of year, and his support was desperately needed to work the land. The neighbor saw the plight of the family and cried “wow, what bad luck you have,” to which the father replied, “good luck, bad luck, who knows.”
While his son was recovering, the father was out drawing water for his horses. He saw a battalion of men marching down the lonely road. The captain of the troop came up to the home, and asked if the old farmer had any able-bodied men in his household. The region was at war and they were conscripting all men to fight!
The father could not hide the fact that he had a son, and the captain walked into their home. Upon seeing the state of the boy, with a broken arm, he decided that the boy would be of no use to the military, and the troop kept on walking. Upon seeing this, the neighbor cried out…”what good luck you have!” to which the father replied….”good luck, bad luck, who knows…”
..and so the story continues…
We never know what positive outcome might eventually come from a seemingly hopeless situation. Sometimes the silver lining will show in the course of a few minutes or even a day. Other times it takes decades. We just need the patience to see things play out over the long-term
Last year, around this time of the day, we had to make a very difficult, almost impossible decision. It really doesn’t felt like a year had passed. Ever since you went away, the house has been so quiet, and seems empty. So we bought Marvel, a dog that’s totally opposite of you. Even though we have Marvel running around now, rarely a day will go by without mentioning you. It just seem so natural to bring up your name, your smart-almost-human antics and alertness.
Sometimes I pity Marvel. He is such a sweet sweet dog, so innocent and unaware. But, you know how much Dad love you, so Marvel got compared to you in all aspect. He had such a difficult start with Dad -___- Now he accepted the fact that Marvel will never be at your intelligence level, he’s treating Marvel like never before. Mom always say she dislike pets but love you nonetheless. You taught her to not hold back the love and she is pampering Marvel soo much !
In substance, you have left us. In reality you are always here with us. Will always love you and love you so much that I name by car after you
