Things That I Do #2

Ever since I started working, I have less time drawing. Not only that, because I need to bring my laptop to work, I seldom on my laptop when I'm at home. I will only take it out during the weekend. I still draw during the week, just need my laptop to put color and stuff. So I think from now on I can only finish up my comics on weekends.  Do bare with me until I get myself another laptop, which will not be in the near future I guess.

Anyway, here you are, Things That I Do #2. 

I think this is funny, but somehow my drawing don't show it. So the story is this, I went to a bank the other day and there was a very long queue. Then suddenly out of no where I got a stomachache. But banks being banks have no toilets. So out of desperation, I went out and look for a toilet. Thank God there is a fast food restaurant next door but I was embarrassed to just go in to use the toilet because the counter is directly in front of the entrance. So I went in and pretended to talk on the phone saying stupid things like "Where are you?!" "What?! you are not here yet?!" "okok! I wait for you" and acted like I was waiting for someone in WcD. Then when no one was looking, I ran into the toilet. hahahahahahaha! So much acting just to go toilet. Stupid! But after that, I just walk out of the restaurant like nobody's business. What done is done, what can they do right? XD

Does the drawing make sense now? Haha~ I will try harder next time.

I'm a fish! I can't climb trees

“Everybody is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it’ll spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

Always find this quote interesting and meaningful. Is just so very true you know. Some people spend their whole life living, thinking that they are not good enough but actually they are just placed in the wrong place.

Ever wonder if the thing you are doing is not what you are really good at? My philosophy is this, what you learned might not be what you do best. What you do best might not be what you have learned.

I always feel that passion is the key to every success in life. I'm always amazed by stories or testimonies about people that insist on their dream and really work on it. They know their goal, they know what they want, even when people say is impossible, they would say "I'm possible"! And that really impresses me.

But the journey towards your dream or goal is not always easy, no, I think is never easy. Others will tend to say "No!", because what they see is impossibles and road blocks along the way. But the question is what do you see?

I'm no expert in chasing dreams, but there is this fire inside of me that somehow cannot be shower off. No matter how many times I've given up in the past few years, it always come back. Nothing has changed about that dream throughout the years, it remain the same and it remain unachieved.

I don't know if someday I'll say my dreams came through. But I know and I know that if I never give it a try, I will regret about it and wonder what will happen if I at least give it a try. Successful or not to me is just not important. I want to be able to say "at least I tried" when I lay on my dead bed.

So please, I asked, do not say that I'm stupid when you ask me to climb a tree, I'm a fish.

Side track a little bit, life is just too short to be concern what other people think. Just do what you want to do as long as it does not hurt or harm others. It might cause someone else to be disappointed, but hey, is your life! You gonna try what you wanna try! Reputation, judgement and opinions does not matter that much. Don't you think so?

And my dad says, these 2 are daughters!

Went to Malacca for a short family holiday with sis and my papa and mama for the weekend. We decided to stop by my dad's friend's restaurant to have lunch. When my dad was paying, the below conversation took place:

Casher: You have two daughters?

Dad: Ya! 2 daughters!

Me: And one more son!

Dad: Ya, I have another son.

(Pause for a while and look at me)

Dad: But these 2 are daughters!

I gave my dad a look like below.

Hahaha! Sometimes I can really look like a dude! With my assets being so limited, is not difficult for me to look like a boy (if you know what I mean). But I don't mind looking like a boy or being misunderstood as a boy. Well, most of the time.

When I was in Singapore, it happens to me every time! When I give up a sit to an aunty she say "Thank you, ah boy!". When I go to the hawker centre, the aunty asked me "Ah boy, what you want to drink?". Some of my classmates even mistaken me as a boy on our first day of school. It was until I went into the girl's washroom only they realise I'm a girl. LOL!

Oh! I wore something like this when I was in that restaurant! Look like a boy meh? I kinna love this outfit combination!

By the way, Sorry guys! Didn't notice that the video in the previous post was not there until I check it this morning. If you guys did not watched the video, I encourage u do so by viewing my previous post here.

To make myself more relax so that I could sleep, I went on to YouTube and watch my recent subscribed channel "ilikeweylie". And I got to say this, I really really like her!!!! She's super funny! Especially in this video below that she did around 2 years ago to teach people how to get over a guy. Hahahahaha

Hope you guys enjoy it too!!!! And if u like it, go ahead and subscribe her channel!

Things that I do #1

Wee!!! This is my first comic ever!!!! hehehehehehe~ I've been wanting to do this for a very long time already. But I always give up because back then it was just too difficult for me to make it happen. Somehow I just find it difficult to draw using software, or maybe I was using the wrong software to draw. I don't know.

But this time around having my iPad, it make things easier. I draw using iPad, color and edit using my computer. Is easier than I though, just that there is some details that I need to take note of. And many thanks to my sis, because with her support and nagging constant reminding, I finally got it done! 

So this is it, "Things that I Do #1". 

So the other day me and my sis went to the supermarket. And as you guys might notice, somewhere nearby the entrance there will be some sort of rack full with their brochure (or something something, those paper full with their promotion items). The rack was empty, but with the sign of "please take one" I can't help but to make a joke out of it. I went forward and took the rack. My sister was stunned! But she laugh too!

When I went back again after a few minutes, the whole rack was gone. My sis told me that those guards saw what I did. Do they really think that I will steal it? Owh please~

Hope you guys enjoy my first short comic. I will try to draw more. Already had one idea in mind regarding what I just did few days ago. haha~ I do silly stuff, is my thing! XD

Fats donor wanted!! anyone?

Since I got a job already, I have another reason to go shopping. To get more working cloths and fill up my boring wardrobe. Besides that, having a job means I will have income, which also means that I got money to shop!

But honestly, being skinny sucks! Yeah~ You read it right! It sucks to be skinny like me! Is super duper hard for me to buy cloths. Normal brands don't have size for me. Normally the smallest size they have is S, which is also too big for me. That's why I have no choice but to go and get more pricey brands. Is not at all fun being skinny. Is very costly, do you know that?

So to those out there, trying to slim down. Please don't slim down to my size. Is not worth it!!! I can't even shop for brands that I like just because I'm too small size. Why la?! why?!!! Uniqlo! why you no sell XS for me? why?!

Haih~ It seems like having money is not all that it takes, but having the right body size/shape is more essential.

It took me around 4 hours just to get a pair of pants and a shirt. And both of these I get from the same old brand that I used to wear. Want to buy something new also cannot. TT I tried on more than 20 outfits today, but it does't suits me at all. Is just too big.

That's why I started my plan of gaining weight by eating peanut butter. hahaha. My mom say I should eat butter instead, but I refuse to because butter have no taste. Anyway, I still can't see any sign of me gaining weight yet. And I do pray that I gain weight equally throughout my body, if not I might just have big tummy. Just from xs to x will be good enough! XD

How I wish there is some machine that can transfer fat. I sure there are many donors out there.

Be alert! No longer safe in Condominium/ Apartment compound

I went back to my hometown last weekend and my sister was left alone here in the apartment. On Saturday night when she came back from church, she almost got robbed. But thank God she is safe and nothing was stolen. This was how it happen. I hope that you can share it with your friends who stay in apartments or condominium. We always thought that having guards in the condominium compound means we are safe, but sadly this is no longer true.

As I said, I went back to hometown therefore my sister went to church alone on Saturday night. When she came back from church, it was around 8.00pm and it was raining. As usual she drove to our parking lot and came out from the car. Suddenly, a black car drove near and a Indian guy came out from the car. We always had our car washed by some of the Indians that offer car wash services, so my sister thought he was one of them and came to ask us to pay for their service. But to my sister's surprise, the first sentence utter by the men was "Kunci kereta mari!" (meaning: give me the car keys). My sister was stunned then the guy repeat the same sentence. When he saw my sister still did not do anything, he tried to grab her. But thank God my sister was fast and she quickly squad a little to avoid his hand then she run towards the guard while shouting very loud. There are 2 other girls that saw her, but unfortunately they were stunned too and did not do anything to help my sister. When my sister finally reach the guard, he looked blur and seems like clueless on what he suppose to do. It was my sister who told him to contact the main guard house to stop the car (which is at the entrance of the condominium), but instead of doing that, he asked my sister to walked to the guard house with him. At the guard house, my sister asked them if they saw any black car went out, but they say they did not notice anything. Which make us to think whether it is an inside job. Because come to think of it, if the guy succeed to steal our car, he would need a car pass to get out (since there will be no visitor pass for our car), therefore we believe that there is a high chance that it is an inside job.

So please friends, be careful! Do not think that as long as you are in the apartment/condominium compound you are safe. But for every minute and every second be alert of your surroundings. And friends, if next time you see someone shouting, please try not to just leave them alone. I know you might be afraid that it is some scheme to hurt/ harm you. But the least you can do, for yourself and the victim is to shout and get more attention.

Is sad, but the truth is we are no longer safe. So please be careful and alert.

I really believe that it is God protection that safe my sister. Is kind of supernatural for a girl to react so quickly in that kind of situation. And I thank God that when the car came (there were more than one person, one driving and another came down from the car), they did not stop it directly behind our car, if not it might be impossible for my sister to get away. I also thank God that the person did not chase after my sister after she ran away if not who will know what might happen. I'm truly grateful that she is safe.

If 2012 is end of the world

I don't know about you all, but these few days I've been seeing posts after posts on FB about a video. I tried finding it in YouTube but I think it is uploaded via other website.

Basically the video is about this group of people call Maya. They are very good in maths and astronomy and somehow with their intelligence they could draw the other side of the moon in their ancient temple which scientist could not figure out how they did it because only one side of the moon face the earth. So the thing is this, they say 21 December 2012 is the end of the world because the moon, sun and earth will line up in a straight line and have something to do with the black hole. Which they say will affect the balance of the earth and natural disasters might happen and thus the end of the world.

Phew~ so the thing is this, what if 2012 is really the end of the world? Will I have any regrets before I die? Think about it for a second, I most probably will not think of what other say bout me before I die but I will regret not doing those things I wanted to do. Can't let fear be in the way! So I've decided to dedicate this month (since still house-sister)  to do whatever that I planned but have yet to start on it. Have a few ideas in mind already, so stay tuned!!!!!

"Do whatever you like" line

The word "unemployed" sound so negative, that's why I've found ways to describe my current position. The other day when all my CG members were introducing themselves and what line/industry they were in, I told them I'm in the "do whatever you like" line. hahaha. Stupid me, come out with all sorts of silly ideas. I thought of another one too! Next time I'll introduce myself as a full time "house-sister"(inspired by the word "housewife"). Since I'm cooking for my sister, it sounds appropriate right?

In the end, iPhone 5 is still not launched yet. Sigh~ Sort of expected it though, but is ok, is good for me too since I'm low (very very low) in income for now.

Saw the below video on FB the other day. Man! Samsung is becoming a game changer! (Maybe like what Apple did long ago?) Just be viewing this video makes me want to buy it already (since I want to have a smaller camera). I LOVE their expert mode! Man! is like using a DSLR with preview of it. It will be way much easier to control all the settings. And I do have to say this again, is super light and small compare to DSLR!!!! Argh!!!Mister Santa Clause, I've been a very good girl this year, can I have this for Christmas??

Just in case Santa Clause isn't real, I better practice more and take more photos. Hopefully by the time I hit 2000, they already come out with something better, lighter and more user friendly. Hm... maybe when the time comes, the price would be lower too? XD

Here's some pictures of my nephew! Cute little guy, not afraid of strangers and don't cry. But also hard to entertain, he don't smile at all!!! Act cool! XD

New Proton Preve Review

Since coming back from Singapore, I've been having some problem on transportation. My sister is studying part-time now so she will need the on certain days. Besides that, there are times that we both need the car. With me not having any job yet is still easy for us to make arrangement, but I can't help but to think what if I start work soon? I would definitely need the car.

So I can't help but to think that maybe we should get another car. And on the top of my mind appear is Malaysia's auto website carsifu. Got to know this website few years ago, and since then whenever I want to browse through cars, I will visit their website. Mainly because their website is easy to use and they have different types of cars. Other than that, is easy to compare the price of different type of cars. For those who is on tight budget, second hand cars are also available in the website. So to me is just all in one, easy and simple.

This time around my focus is on our national car - Proton. My knowledge on Proton cars are minimum. I think the latest model I know is Gen-2 which if not mistaken was launched years ago. So I find it interesting to see so many different types of proton cars available that I’ve not known before.

One of the cars that caught my attention is this brand new model by proton, Proton Preve.

I did some small research on this car (by research I mean google! XD), and apparently Preve is the first Proton model ever to receive a 5-star Malaysian Vehicle Assessment Programme (MyVAP) rating by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety (MIROS). Good to know about that! I need as much protection as possible when it comes to driving, even my friends from Singapore say that my angel need to work double to keep me safe on the road! ><

One of the features that caught my attention was how spacious the car is. Even with 508L of boot space, the car still has a very spacious rear’s leg room. I think with the traffic jam in KL is better to have more leg room, if not is will not be good for our back posture. Trust me on this, I have back ache for years already.

Other than that, they also have functions like average fuel consumption, distance to empty tank, battery health and faulty bulb indicator (and so on) which my current car have none of it!  Why la!!!!

From what I read, I like this car. Would really consider about it when I got a job! Teehee~ If you are interested just go to their website and search for Proton Preve for sale!

Y u no launch iPhone 5???

Maxis!!!! Y u no offer iPhone 5???!!!!

If not mistaken, iPhone 5 was officially launched in September. 2 months passed by but still there is no news of it coming out any soon.

I've heard so many rumours, seen so many so called 'indicators' of iPhone 5 launching in Malaysia soon. But needless to say they all bring nothing but dissapointments.

At first I heard they say iPhone 5 is going to launch in end of October, then some genius found this thing in Mid-Valley website or something saying it will have iPhone 5 promo in  the beginning of November. And now, they say is going to be out by tomorrow (29/11). I don't know if is true or not, just got to wait and see.

Seriously, why none of the companies is offering iPhone 5 till now? If really there is a reason behind it, then why none of the companies give us a estimated date of when they will launch iPhone 5? Why let customers wait and dwell in rumors and get disappointed?

Some of my friends who said will get iPhone 5 previously get fed up and they end up buying Samsung. I'm not saying Samsung phone is bad, I'm just saying letting your potential customer wait like this make you lose customers. Bad marketing strategy!!!!

Me too a bit sick of waiting and can't wait to get myself a smart phone. So Maxis, please be smart, at least let me know when can??

Road Trip!!!!

My parents came up to celebrate my bro's belated birthday last weekend. From what I heard from my sis, the sky became dark when they were having lunch. So my parents just quickly pack their stuff and go home to avoid the rain.

That same night when me and my sister were fooling around in her room, I saw my mom's license on the dressing table. We quickly call her up and after her discussion with my dad they decided to meet us up at the middle point between our place and my hometown, that is Seremban. My sis took this advantage and persuaded my parents to bring us  to this restaurant which is famous for their crab. My parents being my parents agree to that, since my dad will not say no to his daughters (quote this from my mom).

Thus begin our road trip. (Ok la... We only meet them up the next evening, not like there is any restaurant that still do business in the middle of the night. Duh!)

It was a very fun trip, we played some music in the car and have our very own karaoke session. Then we saw smoke coming out of no where and pass by the lorry that was on fire.

After that, we saw this guy riding the motorbike in a funniest way ever!!! I literally laugh till my stomach pain like no body's business. And to top it all, we have a really really amazing dinner!!!!

We weren't really sure if we went to the right restaurant. My mom was convinced it is since their signboard have picture of crab on it. So we just went ahead, and when we saw Ah Xian's board there, we were all convinced that it was the right place! 

We ordered 4 dishes. Taufu with vege, stir fried kang kung, coconut chicken soup and of course marmite crab (their signature crab)!!!

Nothing much to say about their taufu. It doesn't taste bad, but it did not impress me either.

Their stir fried kang Kung is the best that I ever had!!! Normally I prefer kang Kung belacan, but their stir fried kang Kung impresses me a lot! They use a lot of garlic to cook with the kang Kung and you just can taste that the fire is big enough when they cook this dish! Yummy!!!!!

This is the first time I tasted coconut chicken soup. Is something different, very smooth and you can taste the sweetness of the coconut in the soup. I don't really love it, because I'm more towards salty taste when it comes to soup.

Last, the crab!!! By far, this is the second best crab I've ever taster! (Number one is of course my mom's la!) you can clearly taste the freshness of the crab. I couldn't stop eating. The meat's texture was so perfect, every bite of it is like heaven inside my mouth! Oh~~~~ I'm hungry already.

I don't know the exact address, but do search for this signboard if you want to have a taste of it.

Missions I'm Possible!!!

When I was young, I always wanted things that others have or just things that interest me. My mom, knowing me since I was born will not simply buy me something just in case the "hot-season" of that particular toy will end soon. So she came out with this idea of trial run. How does it work? Is very simple. For example, I remember this one time that I wanted an alarm clock soooo badly because my sister bought a new one. So I insisted to have one myself and asked my mom for it. My mom knows why I wanted one, not because I needed one, but because I just want it for the sake of having it. Besides, if I'm not mistaken, alarm clock can't really wake me up. To make sure I will really use it, my mom lend me her alarm clock and let me use it for a week. The trick is this, for the entire week, I will have to get my ass out of my bed when the alarm rings. With a brand new alarm clock in mind, I survived that one week. But I don't remember if I was awaken by the alarm clock after my mom bought me one.

Years passed by and I'm still the same. I want to get things just to be trendy, just because that particular thing looks cool or maybe because others say is good ( and it look cool). But with those kind of past record, I dare not simply spend my money just on things that I want. So with the inspiration from my mom, I decided to put my "wants" into test before getting them. Therefore, I came out with 2 missions ( hopefully not impossible). 

1. Mission "Melody 20"
I saw a white guitar in church and I really like it. It looks super cool and nice and most importantly my friend, who is a musician told me that the sound of the guitar is very good too. So I wanted it, having the mindset that I will be motivated to really learn how to play guitar. But the thing is, I already have one at home. So, to make sure that i will use it, I'm determined that I will only (consider) get the guitar if I've learn how to play 20 songs. 

So far I've learned one song and I must say it is a very good experience. This is my first time ever finish learning how to play a song. Normally I'll give up after few days. 

The completion of a song is determined by my sister who apparently have more talent in music than me. 19 more to go!

2. Mission "2000"

I wanted a semi-pro camera for a very long time already. I feel that it is lighter for me to bring it around compared to the DSLR that my dad bought me yeas ago. "Inconvenient" had been the excuses for me not to bring my camera out. But I figure if I really gonna buy a new camera, I better learn how to take good pictures first. So I came out with this mission of snapping 2000 presentable/ nice photos before getting a more convenient/lighter camera. Of course, the judge of these photos is not me but my best friend/ personal assistant/ fashion consultant. By far, she only approve one. Hu~~ long way to go.

When the word "sales" appear

Somehow I can't help but to believe that there is a magic spell in One Utama that will attract me there and spend money shopping.

I went there on Monday night to have dinner with my sister since she say she wanted to have sushi. I insisted to go to Hokkaido Ichiba, One Utama because compared to the crowd, food and service that I experienced in other outlets, Hokkaido in One Utama is the best! (I will remember to take picha next time!)

After dinner and on our way to Jusco to get some grocery, we past by one of my favorite shop with very attracting and evil word that lure my attention - SALE! Puma was having sales! And a very big one! They were giving 30% off on selected items and 50% off when buy 2 and above. I can't help it but to go in to have a look. Because I wanted a pair of shoes for a very very long time but I haven't bought it yet. The last time I enter into Puma, I almost bought a pair but persuaded myself not to because I somehow felt that new designs are coming out. Although I don't really like the new designs, but my patient pay off, the shoes that I wanted was on sales!

Having that in mind, I immediately text my "fashion consultant" and book her for Tuesday since is a holiday and she do not need to work.

So we went there yesterday and man! The sales in Puma is bigger than I thought. At first I thought buy the first item on 30% and if I buy 2, the second item will be 50% off. But when we asked the promoter there, he told us is when you buy 2 or above items of the same categories, all will be 50% off! I was shocked! And there they were, displaying in front of me. One was the one I wanted previously, and the other was the one I was determined to get. My brain started to move and I calculated how much I need to pay if I buy  both. I only need to pay an extra RM30 to get the second shoes if I buy the first pair at 30% off. Long story short, I buy both shoes without any promoter assisting me to get my shoes. Hahaahahahaha!!! When you have sales, you just need cashier! XD

So here are some picha of my shoes. Will post me wearing them sometime later~  wee~~~

It was smooooooooth~~

I've been in a very very very bad condition since last week. My emotions hit rock bottom after facing countless disappointments and 2 rejections from the companies that I really really hope to get in. My plan for a oversea trip next year was flush into toilet even though I tried my best to make it happen and I bloody got lost in KL. (p/s: I hate it when guys are so full of their ego and don't even bother to say sorry)

Come to think of it, I'm just being stupid. But thank God that in times like this I still have a bunch of crazies that I could hang out with. They are my Uni-DJ club mates. Some of them was there for me in times of sorrow and pain. I'm super duper glad that I went out with themlast Saturday. If it wasn't for them, I might sink myself with endless emo-ness. 

We went to have a drink at "The Sanctuary", The Curve. I don't really like to drink after I was drunk in Langkawi few years ago and since then I can't really stand alcohol smell. So when they order liqueur, I order cocktail. But they insisted me to try it out. I didn't like the first one they ordered, but the second bottle was smooooth!!!!!  It was so freaking smooth that I keep drinking! XD 

I was so high that day that my dear friend Epink said she will never ever  bring me go drinking again because she have to take care of me. Well, I have a confession, I really wasn't drunk that day, I can remember every single conversation that I made. I was being silly and stupid. All I wanted to do was have fun. And I really did have fun. That night (Or should I say morning? XD), I went to bed with a smile!

I'm really really grateful to have a night out with them at time like this. 

Before I end, here's a combination of my singing and drawing as promised in previous post. Prepare your hearts too ya!!!!! (Please mute the video and see my drawing if you really don't like my singing~~~)
