Weekends!

Well many things happened this weekend.  Starting with yesterday (Saturday), went to look at a RM 1.2 million Double Storey Bungalow Show House.  One word:  Awesome.  Six Words:  I wish I could own one.  

The house is big enough (duh), simple landscaping but it is to my taste and overall it's very cozy and heart warming.  It really have that 'house quality' that many houses that I've seen before lack.

Fast forward to evening time, went to watch Looper.  It is a MUST watch movie.  Trailer might seem so-so but that's because the trailer does not do the movie justice.  It's like dat INCEPTION movie of year 2012 because it's just simply awesome.

Today is just plain shitty.  Why?  Simple.  I laundry washed my iPod.

YES, I FREAKING LAUNDRY- 45- MINUTES- WASHED MY IPOD WITH DYNAMO!



T_________________________________________________T



This time I really got to cry for real because I freaking WASHED AN IPOD.  How many idiots out there on Earth who washes their iPod?  Probably less than all my ten fingers added together.

I am letting it air dry now, hoping it will work tomorrow ._.

Other than that, I also tried the Kentucky Fried Chicken new Double Show Down Zinger Burger.  Verdict:  Samurai Beef Burger is much better (for those of you who can eat beef) because it's just way too meaty and the meat just ain't juicy.  It's like eating a two huge ass chunk of jerky because it's just dry and chewy.  And oily.  Yuck.

Samurai Beef Burger's patty is tender and very very juicy, coated with yummeh yummeh yum Teriyaki sauce.

Then, shared a Double Chocolate Truffle Mooncake with a friend.  Oh talking about mooncake, I must also be one of the rare idiots who went mooncake hunting at 2 Aeon Jusco and 2 bakeries for mooncake and failed to buy any because all Mooncake stalls apparently disappear on Mooncake day!  So disappointed and so sad ;_;  So if any of you know any place that sells mooncake, DO LET ME KNOW!

Other than that, I spent my day mourning over my iPod.

Just hope it's going to work tomorrow.  It will.  It must.

One Can Never Be Their Own Judge

Stop being the judge and start acting like the contestant!

A lot of times, when competing for something be it dance competition, drawing competition or even your CV for a job interview!  Stop looking at others work or performance and then compare them to yours because what's the point in that?

You will then start thinking that the person is much better than you, have a thicker CV than you but you are totally missing out the point!  The REAL person that you've got to impressed at the end of the day is the Judge of the Competition or your future boss, NOT the person competing with you!

You can't say 'Oh that person got awesome line art!', or 'That person's dancing style is so awesome!' because at the end of the day, YOU are NOT the one hiring so don't judge things too quick and kill your own chances because you never know what the real judges are looking for!  You could be just the right person for the part but you could also kill it by either taking yourself out of the competition or changing your original style.

BE CONFIDENT.  BELIEVE IN YOUR WORK, just like how I believe in my blog.  I could post my ugliest picture online but I don't give a damn because I am born like that, happy like that.  If your talent or style is in a certain way, appreciate it.  Love it.  Because it's yours and no one elses' but yours.  One person didn't like it so what?  9 others might love it <3

Stars of David and a 5 Pointed Star is Different

Did you know that?

Okay lets take a little test.  Do you think picture A or picture B is the Star of the Satan?

Choose!  A or B!

..
Answer is:  Picture B!!

I am not kidding!  Most of the time, people mistaken the star in Picture A as the sign of Satan but it is the 5 pointed one, which is most commonly drawn by children (taught by adults) is the star of Satan.

To prove my point, there is this person on the Internet who 'carved' the Star of Satan onto his skin.


This picture was originally posted by loyalkng.com with the exact comment below:

"This is how you epically fail at putting a satanic star on to your arm! LOL as you guys can obviously see this is the star of David, so “WOW” is all I can say."

So, next time before you decide to ink yourself or do anything permanent to yourself, think twice and research.  Just effing Google it for information that you want.  Don't be this guy.  It's humiliating

See you next round <3.

One Letter Makes All the Difference




I am pretty sure many of you experienced bloopers like this before.  You were typing or writing a sentence in a hurry and you hit enter before you know it and when you realized it's already too late.  Or, you submitted that assignment of yours to your lecturer without double checking because you did it last minute.  Well, it's a lesson for you to never do last minute work again, ever!

My tuition teacher once told me that she submitted her assignment without proof reading it and when she got her grades, she not only got an F on her paper, her teacher also took the effort to make her the scapegoat in front of the entire class.

Her paper's title was 'Public Services'.  What she submitted was 'Pubic Services'.

Enough said.  She said she really wish to just die on the spot.

True story bro. 


Second true story.

Happened to me like just 3 days ago.  Went to the dentist and after registration and all, went to grab a seat.  It was a little crowded and the only seat available was a bench where a young couple was already sitting there.  Afraid of intruding, I went over and asked politely but what came out was 'Excuse me, can I shit here?'.  I blinked, excused myself and went inside the toilet to hide for a full 5 minutes.  Well maybe they really think I wanted to shit badly since I was in the toilet for 5 minutes.  Just to clear things up, I wasn't shitting.

Third true story.

I saw my cousin online on Facebook so I pmed her.  She replied me with 'Hellllllllllp'.  I was like O.O Wait what?  And I was thinking to myself what happened.   Then she told me she meant 'Helllllllo' but she made a typo since 'P' is situated next to 'O'.

So guys, before you sent any text messages or submit a piece of paperwork, it's worth that double checking.

:D

Trolls

Definition of Troll from Google:



troll/trōl/

Noun: 
  1. A mythical, cave-dwelling being depicted in folklore as either a giant or a dwarf, typically having a very ugly appearance.
  2. The action of trolling for fish.
Verb:
Fish by trailing a baited line along behind a boat: "we trolled formackerel".

Definition of Troll (internet) from Wikipedia:

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[3]extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[4] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.


So, which troll are you?

The ugly green one?  Or the one with the pea size brain?  Or maybe, you are both.  Ugly green pea size brain person.

They are one of the most hated person on the Internet because they are the perfect being.  They see fault in everyone else but theirs.

Every other person on the Earth (which is roughly 7 billion people) are wrong.  They are dumb.  No one else can think the way they do and say the things they say.   Well that's because you are the only one with the pea size brain apparently.

I absolute hate hate hate and hate them.  They make my blood boils.  They think they are all so smart and witty.  It's not because I am afraid of 'butt hurt much' situation but they just get on my nerves.  Especially in games.  With lots of other people.  Why can't they just cooperate when it's their turn?  Instead, they 'troll'.  They are just wasting every one elses' time except theirs.

I would love to say I don't care about them but that's merely most of the times.  There are of course times where I really wish I knew which idiot is behind the other side of the screen so that I can strangle that person.

So, are you a troll?  Do you like being a troll?  Why?  Let me know.


Come on baby.  I'm waiting.

Is it Asian Eyes or Just Mine?

It's always, always, ALWAYS the case whenever someone is trying to take a picture of me.  They will take my picture (group photo, passport photo and even during my IC picture), after they take they will say 'Hey mish didn't open her eyes!' or they would ask me to open my eyes BEFORE taking the pictures.

                                                            __  __
SERIOUSLY, MY EYES ARE OPENED O.O <- LIKE THAT



BUT WHAT THEY SEE IS THIS -> = u =  (extra stroke for the eye brows)



HAROO, IS IT BECAUSE I AM A ASIAN? (being Chinese in particular) or... IS IT JUST ...... me?

I refuse to believe it's the second reason.  Absolutely refusing to believe that.  NOT BUYING THAT!

It happened to me many, many times like since forever.  And it just happened again few hours ago  Lol I have no hard feelings for those who says that to me but I should really consider getting a double eye lid surgery huh?

Then I could finally look like this >D





#1  Picture(s) credits to my Godbrother who magically painted this picture for me when I requested him to do so, even when he is overseas >D  Under 10 minutes!  Wow what, he named those pictures Michuhasnoaiiz.  THANK YOU BROTHER.  YES, I get the point!

You know, I've tried opening my eyes real big and my friends who saw that told me to never do it again.  I think.. I am just not suited with big eyes ;_;

I had a nick name last time.  Remember when Naruto was the in thing at one moment and there's this skill call 'Byakugan' ?  'Gan' basically mean eyes in Japanese.  My friends called me 'Chisaigan' for many months.  'Chisai' stands for exceptionally small.  I've translated the last word for you so that you can put 1 and 1 together pft.

Some of them even went to the extent and asked me:  Are you able to see when you are laughing?   I don't know, judge for yourself.



#2 Photo credits to my talented photographer, JY Photography.  You can contact her via the page <3  And that's Mayyie who's next to me <3


The real answer is:  90% of the time I can see even when I am laughing.  10% of the time when I am laughing really hard, yes I can't see.  Happy?


Come on, it's not because I really have small eyes, I merely have larger cheeks that gives the illusion I have smaller eyes because, because- er, because erm, because... I think I need to get myself an eyeliner.  And some Youtube tutorials on making eyes look bigger.

OR

Maybe I should start taking advice from this guy here.  I mean he looks so much better than me D:  Flawless skin and awesome make up skill.  I should totally go for the Korean look.


# Video 1 Super cute looking guy in the video is Ivan Lam.  Visit his page to look for more of his (future) videos!

Well, I am not sure if it works or not but I am pretty sure this is counted as 'got eyes' alright?



#3 So obviously GOT eyes loh

This was taken this evening at my balcony, so no cheating :D SEE, GOT EYES!

<3  Tonight I will be able to go to bed and sleep soundly because I have convinced the world that I've. Got.  Eyes!

Never be in denial.

Bubbuhbyee!

Driving with Parental Guidance Is an Absolute Horror for Me

They shriek, they scream and they put their hands on your hand brake.

How do they expect me to drive safely when THEY are acting like that o.o

There's such a big difference when you are driving with your instructor and when you are driving with your parents in a car.

Have this ever happened to you before? (let me know in the comment box below!)  It's not that my driving skill is (thaaaaaaaaaaaaat) bad but it just feels like they have absolutely no trust in you at all, especially right after you got your license!

They warn you of every existing car on the road and at times they crank their head left and right so much that they complain of a neck ache at night.  Or when you are trying to come out from a road, they block your entire left mirror view because the only thing you can see is your parents' hair (afro?  bald?  lots of white hair?) because they have decided to look for you instead of letting you do it.

They shriek and point at every road bump which is like 50 metres ahead of you.  Remind them, you are the one with the better vision, not them.  You can SEE what's in front of you especially when it looks like a giant flat bee.

It's also good to always remind them gently that you are the one behind the wheels therefore you should have full control of the entire car.  You can't just share that responsibility with them >:O  Too many cooks spoils the soup.  2 drivers in a car is simply asking for trouble.

Assure them.  Re-assure them.  Assure them again.  You will drive safely on the road.  You won't drive past the speed limit and you will absolutely not show off when you are on the road.  Both hands on the wheel if possible.

Put on some light music to clear the mood up.  Allow them to give you tips on driving and overtaking cars and etc but when they are crossing the line, let them know that they are not helping but making things worst because they make you feel nervous.

Bear all of this in mind and you should be good to go! Vroom -vroommmm!

More iPhone 5 Updates!

I know some of you are getting your iPhone tomorrow (which is less than 2 hours time to midnight on my clock) which I would delightfully cross my stubby fingers around your little neck (which I won't) BUT, for the rest of you who STILL HAS TO WAIT, LIKE ME, here are more updates (or should I say a compiled version) to let you have something to ga-ga over before you are able to have your own physical iPhone 5 firmly grasp in your hand.

Without further ado, I present to you an image grabbed from a Facebook friend!




Oh wait, wrong picture.  But er, well Samurai Burger seems fine too.  To curb my hunger for the iPhone 5 temporarily :D



THIS IS IT!  TA-DA!



Abortion vs Active Murder

Both abortion or actively murdering them are absolutely not right so is there a possibility of weighing which is the lesser of two evil?  Or are they equally evil?

Going for an abortion or killing their babies seems to be the in thing other than Oppa Gangnam Style in Malaysia nowadays.  You might perceive me as saying this in a light manner but not because I think it is a light matter but rather, the teens or the ladies seems to be dealing with unwanted pregnancy in a light matter.  They seem to be removing a life from their body as though they are merely removing a pimple from their face.  Nothing more nothing less.  Is this what our Malaysian society believes in today?  Rape is not a serious business.  Abortion is like eating cendol.  Throwing babies everywhere is comparable to dogs taking a dump everywhere.  For those of you who are hearing this for the first time, I suggest you start reading newspaper be it in hardcopy or via the Internet.

The first few cases, it shocked the nation.  What about after 5 cases?  Then 10?  Then hundreds?  It does seem to spark outrage from certain people (like me) but what about the people who've done it?  Those who are considering to do it?  Those who are about to get themselves into this situation?

It would've always been easier to just turn a blind eye and not talk about it because what's the point?  Sooner or later people will forget about this until the next case and who knows how many would care?  Wrong.  This type of thinking is very wrong.  It's tiring yes, but it's worth your time to read this and to understand how important it is because it could happen to anyone at all.  It could happen to your sister, or your cousin, your friend or..... yourself.

It's always easier to take the higher way up.  To just look down on those who has been through this and mock them, scold them, criticize them, brandish them.  If it works, it would've worked by now but judging by how things are going, this is not likely the case.

For those of you who are not from Malaysia, let me fill you in with a bit of summary of what has been happening lately.

Lets start with 6th July 2012.  On that very day, 2 accounts of dead babies were found at two separate State.  One was found in a knapsack (delivered by a 16 year old) while the other was found in a shoebox (mother not found).   If you wish to read more, you can read it here and here.

2 months later, on 8th September 2012, another 16 year old flushed her newborn baby down the toilet bowl after 'unexpectedly' giving birth which resulted in getting the babys' head stuck and having to break the toilet bowl to retrieve the body.  She claims she is unaware that she is pregnant (and mark my words I will have some nasty comment about this below) I am not making any of this up, you can read it here

Unsurprisingly, barely 2 weeks later on 17th September 2012, a 20 year old tossed her newborn baby down the 3rd floor of her flat with her umbilical cord still attached.  Once again, parents of this 20 year old says they are unaware of her being pregnant.  You can read it here

You should know that I am merely taking those reports from July until September this year and disregarding all the earlier reports from January 2012.  3 months and 4 cases of (reported) active murders of their own babies.  What about the unreported murders?  What about abortion?

Abortion (strictly speaking for those who are pregnant not via rape) is made illegal in Malaysia hence it makes all the difference.  If it's legalize in your country, I have nothing against that but where abortion is made illegal here, there is all the difference.

First things first, why abortion?  Is it a backup solution for those of you who 'party first suffer later'?  Second thing, can you live with it?  For those of you who have done abortion, please understand that abortion is not about not having that child you never had.  It is about that child that you've murdered.  Third, do you EVEN KNOW what are the after effects of abortion?  Or did you went and abort your child without knowing any consequences?

Here, we have to look from 2 point of views.  One is from the lady who went for abortion.  One is for the doctor who performed the abortion.  Should the lady has done it?  Or should the Doctor has done it?  That, I leave it to your own good judgment.

I will also not touch on the good side or the bad side of abortion because it is an endless argument.  It is as much as asking if I am pretty or not because different people will always and never fail to give two sides of the argument.  I've got people telling me I am attractive and I've got people calling me a troll (as in Shrek).  The message that I am trying to bring across here is:  Never put yourself in the situation that leads you to abortion.

And this message is to all the ladies out there:  'Be. Smart.'

The time has change where men no longer exist to protect us.  I am also not touching on gender equality over here.  My message is simple and clear:  Ladies, learn how to protect yourself.  You can have (because no one is able to stop you if you really want to but this are not words of encouragement) pre-marital sex, heck even underage sex and we all know that you are perfectly capable of involving yourself with sexual activity from age 12 onwards.  You could be curious, you could be more mature than your peers or you are just so fazed by that guy you are seeing now.  You could be doing it based on the novels that you have read (E.g. Twilight or Fifty Shades of Grey) or movies that you are exposed to.  Some of you even saw your parents doing it and you are dying to know what sex is like.  There is no need for a volume of Dummies Guide to Sex because every one with sufficient and reasonable intellectual will recognize sex.  I say they recognize, I did not say they understand the importance or the symbol of it.

You are going to have sex and you are going to do it without your parents knowledge.  What I am merely pleading and begging you to do is to just at the very least, practice safe sex especially when you are not even sure of what you are getting into.  For those of you with children or with younger sisters, please let them know the existence of condoms.  This are not gestures of encouragement but rather as a gesture of last hope.  At least if they are doing it, they are doing it with protection.  Getting pregnant is one thing, getting disease is another.

Another thing that all you ladies should know is, before you have sex, do this one last thing for yourself (because this is not for anyone else).  Look into the eyes of your partner and ask him with a straight face:  Is he going to take responsibility with you IF by luck or by chance you got pregnant.  It's one very simple question and I expect him to answer you with nothing but a 'Yes'.  By taking responsibility means marrying you and taking care of the child together.  Lets not consider his/your background or even the possibility of you guys getting married.  Just ask him that.  If he fiddles, says he is unsure, convince you that nothing of that sort is going to happen because you guys are using protection or you are taking pills or he won't come into you, it's time to get dressed and walk out of that room.

You HAVE TO UNDERSTAND that he will be walking a free man and you are the one carrying a life in you if you do get pregnant.  YOU will be the one sheltering all the guilt.  YOU will be the one carrying all the shame.  YOU will be the one facing your parents.  YOU will be the one who has to make a decision of killing it or letting it live because if you opt for an abortion, YOU will be the one who will have your insides being ripped off you.  You could say that both you and your partner bears 50/50 percent of sin but let me tell you, it does not work that way.  No one could have that child out of you other than you yourself regardless of what others says.  So if he is not ready to be responsible for you, why should you let yourself go through this?  Don't be naive for one second and think 'it won't happen to me' or 'bleh I won't be so lucky' because you will never, ever know and by the time you do know, you would've wished you never did it.

Say if you DO give birth to the baby then what?  Fatherless?  You are going to bring the baby up alone?   Again, it all falls down on your shoulder, not his.  So if he could not bring himself to say 'Yes' in comparison to what he could cause you, do you think this guy is worth it then?  Always remember, it takes 2 hands to clap.

If after all this you still think it's the right choice for you to get an abortion, the choice is yours.  For those of you who does not want to get an abortion but you are unable to keep the baby, please do not attempt to leave your baby any where.  Malaysia has opened its first 'Baby Hatches' Program modelled based on similar programmes from Germany, Pakistan and Japan by a Non-Government Organization (NGO) where mothers are allowed to leave their babies anonymously in a hatch.  You open the hatch door where there is an incubator bed and after you close the door and leaves, the detector will set off the alarm to notify the staffs.  I've already searched the necessary details so all you need to do is just share this piece of information with anyone at all:

No. 6, Lorong SS 1/24 A
Kampung Tunku
47300 Petaling Jaya
Selangor Malaysia


Tel:  +603 7876 1900
Fax: +603 7875 1900
After hours emergency number:
(after 6.00 p.m.): +6010 2830 528

I am not sure if they tape the phone call or anything but just try this place out alright?  Give yourself a chance, give other people a chance as well to adopt your child.  Just remember this message below.



Or, you could make a difference and turn this burden of yours into happiness for someone else.  There are tonnes of couples who wants to conceive but they are not able to do so.  Give yourself a chance.  Give others a chance as well.







Useful information are up till here only so you can stop reading now.  Below are merely rants.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY YOU DON'T KNOW YOU ARE PREGNANT?  Dumb is not even the right word to use to describe you because it is apparently not stupid enough.  You are bloody 16 and you don't know you are pregnant?  You know what is sex but you don't know what is pregnancy?  You don't know what's period?  As far as I am concerned, you passed PMR (Sec 3) or if you had matriculation class, you are CURRENTLY in Sec 3 and you don't tell me you are not taking Science because as far as I know, Science is a compulsory subject in PMR.  I chose not to believe that your teacher fail you by not teaching you what is period.  You DID NOT have period for 9 effing months.  Normal girls would be panicking to think they are either pregnant or something is VERY WRONG somewhere and you think it's NORMAL and go around telling 'woops baby fell from Mother Stork'

And WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOUR DAUGHTER IS PREGNANT?  I've heard of the saying that a man won't know his wife is pregnant until her tummy covers the TV but even a guy cannot be that thick.  A KID can tell if someone is pregnant because pregnant means putting on at least 20kg and above despite how small frame you are and ESPECIALLY if you are small frame, putting on 20kg is a feat, especially if its concentrated around your belly and AS PARENTS YOU EFFING SAY YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOUR DAUGHTER IS PREGNANT?  Are you high for 180 days x 24 hours a day or are you blind?  If you are neither, you deserved to be slapped.

Which is Worst? Nightmare or Reality?

Waking up from a nightmare itself is another nightmare as it leaves you feeling nervous, anxious, scared, sweaty and every other emotional feeling because nightmare is never a good dream no?  Unless you are a masochist that enjoys horrible dreams then you will most likely be like the rest of us who dreads having a nightmare.

Nightmare being horrible is one thing.  Waking up and finding yourself in a nightmare is another whole new level altogether.  This morning after I woke up, I was still wasting time rolling around the bed as it's still early.  Time on the clock is 8.20 a.m. and my clock is usually faster by 15 mins so it's tentatively 8.05 a.m.   55 more minutes to work and the drive to work is only 15 minutes away so rolling around for 5 minutes wouldn't hurt.

Then I heard my cellphone ringing and I thought who would call me so early in the morning.  Before I could answer the call, the phone had stopped ringing and I saw that it's from my colleague.  I naturally thought if she called to ask if I wanted breakfast as she does that once in a while - calling me at 8+ to ask if I wanted bread or dim sum for breakfast.  Before I could digest all those in, I received a message from her which says " Are you on leave today?" I was puzzled and THEN, it STRUCK me.  I look at the clock on my cellphone and there it was:  9.35 a.m.








9. 35 a.m.
.
.
.
.
.
9. 35 a.m.
.
.
.
.
.
9 FREAKING 35 A.M.




If I could jump as high as a giraffes' neck, I would.  Instead I stood rooted to the spot while braining all this in and then scoot all over the place to shower, brush teeth, wash face, dress and ran (walked) to my car.  Must be record breaking because by the time I reached my car, it says 9. 44 a.m.

As if that wasn't enough, 1/3 through the journey (which means 5 minutes into driving) it started raining h.e.a.v.i.l.y.   Maybe Rain God wasn't clear enough on this matter.  I am already late and he has to make it rain at that very moment?  Why can't it rain before I go to bed or when i am IN bed?  Why must it rain when I am on the way to work?!

At least there's one good thing in this >.>  I didn't have any appointment or meeting or anything scheduled for this morning if not, I am screwed.  By a clock.  By MYYYY clock.

Gonna go back and kill it.  Strangle it.  Throw it off my flat (look on the bright side, at least I am not throwing a baby down the flat).

Well I guess for me, nightmares are dreadful but actually living one, it's hard for me to walk in with my head held high especially when I was slightly drenched and I was late.  For an hour.  And there I was thinking nothing could go wrong since I woke up early and all.  Lesson of the day:  Have TWO clocks so that when one decides to screw you, at least you've got another one to unscrew it.

Hoping for a sweeter dream tonight and a sweeter reality tomorrow.

Buh bye <3

P/s:  On another thing, after I tightened my braces last Saturday, one side of my upper jaw is hurting (teeth) and now that the pain subside, every time I drink a glass of warm water or glass water, it gives this weird hurt-ish sensation.  Is that suppose to happen?  Anyone knows?

Oh Crab!

Hey guys, I am so sorry that I haven't blogged for 2 days ;_; Internet connection has been down and I couldn't blog at all.  A lot of things happened and it sparked few inspirations for future blog post so I hope you will continue to revisit my blog every now and then but lets leave that for the future posts.

For those 28 of you who still continues to view my blog today despite me not posting any new posts, thank you so much for revisiting my page.  And of course, I am truly grateful to any of you who've read my posts and to those that left comments on my posts as well.  That is a truly sweet gesture and I really appreciate each and every comments that were left by you guys.  I can't even describe my thanks to every viewers on my post because you guys simply give me the reason to continue blogging and it does not matter if I get 1 view or a 100 views a day.  As long as 1 person is interested to see what I have to share, I will very happily share my thoughts and experiences through this blog.

Other than those 'Grammy Awards Talk', today's post is very light and simple:  It's basically what I've been doing this few days (mainly lazying around and eating) :D so here are the pictures to describe my days <3




#1  Fishtail half braid



#2  Absolute Chocolate cake!

#3  Lamb Burger (yes, L-A-M-B) and the patty is just so juicy!


#4  Sirloin Steak with Honey Mustard Sauce!


#5  Greek Dressing Salad with cheese and chicken cubes!


#6  Infamous DURIAN Cendol (darn good!)



#7  Butter-Sauced Crab (goes perfectly well when you dip it with bread)


#8  Hugeeeeeeeeeee Prawns!


#9  Stir Fried Crab with Special Sauce




#10  LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THE PINCERS



#11 Steamed Crab!  Looks so pretty right?


All this gourmet food are thanks to godparents' friends who came from overseas and godparents were treating them to all this fantastic meals and fatty mish got the chance to enjoy all this food as well! (here goes the diet plan).

Other than that, I've been re-reading Harry Potter for the 11th time (from book 1 to 7) and if any of you are interested in testing my knowledge of Harry Potter, fire away! (You can simply leave me a comment or email me via mishberries@gmail.com).  Tonight I didn't do anything productive again except hanging out with Godbrother and his partner while catching a quick dinner and we were going through few very interesting topics such as Zombies, Werewolfs, Aliens so who knows?  I might have a post about them one of this days because I've always find this areas highly fascinating.  How bout you?  Are you fascinated by all this fantasy based beliefs?  Or are you more into real life mysteries like Bermuda Triangle or Jack the Ripper thing?

Before I sleep tonight, I guess I will be burying my nose into more Harry Potter books AND also, this other book titled 'The Zombie Survival Guide' by Max Brooks.  Don't know if any of you have read it but I will let you know soon if the book is indeed a good survival guide or just a nonsensical book which claims to give you the 'complete protection from the living dead'.  That's it guys, tatata :D

So broke!

Whats with people nowadays and managing money?  I believe I am not the only who is broke before the middle of the month simply because of the proof below :D


#1  Within minutes after I posted this status, look at the amount of people who is broke AS WELL!


WHAT ABOUT YOU?

What are you guilty of for being broke this month?  Did you went on a guilty spree shopping?  Obtain a gadget that you have been eye-ing on?  Jewellery pieces?  Phones?  Cameras?  Gazillion friends birthday, especially during year end?  Cosplay clothes?  Cosplay accessories?  Materials for cosplay weapon?  Or maybe you went on a food-splurge?  Maybe that short vacation trip that you have been planning since half a year ago?  Whatever the reason is, we are left dry.  Very very dry, as dry as my grandmothers' skin and as cold as the weather in Alaska.  Brrrrr.  Like this.


#2  Grandma's Dry Hand

It's unbelievable that my money management skill is so bad and to think that my Want-To-Buy-List is at least another foot long is pure insanity.  Middle of the month and already living off instant noodle or the cheapest, nearest economy rice stall is very bad.  I guess it's because I feel like this every month during salary day.


#3  Salary Day

However that voice nagging at the back of my head on the things I want to buy is not going away!  With a depleted bank account, what is my solution?? To continue to be as thrifty as possible until pay day and THEN continue checking off things from my Want-To-Buy-List.  Is that what you do?  Then you my friend, are going through a circle of 'so-broke' illness and you are not going to recover anytime soon because this was exactly what you did last month and the month before that leave you in the state of penniless that you are now! 


#4  How I literally feel by middle of the month >.>


So what can you do to lighten up this burden?

1.  Eat less expensive food.  You are already doing that.
2.  Eat lesser.  Hm, maybe.  But you shouldn't do it if you mistaken your stomach growling for                your twitter alert from your phone.
3.  I know there are lots of things that you want to buy but you got to be able to keep a straight mind, look at your list and start crossing off things that you don't really need.  It's painful to cross them off but at the middle of the next month, you will start to feel better about yourself because your wallet isn't as empty as it is currently!  Don't hesitate!  Take that list out now and do it immediately while you still have the courage *channels courage via blog*!  Don't look like my grandma by middle of next month!


#5  Me Attempting to Cross Things Out My List!

4.  You might have crossed 20% of the things off your list.  *Claps hand*  You've done a very good job.  Now I know it's hard but after the first time, the second time should be easier.  I want you to dive back this instance to that list now and cross of things that you really, really don't need.   At the end of this post and you've crossed at least 45% of the things on your list, good job.  Give yourself a reward by doing this.

Or, my own interpretation of success - like this:


#6 SUCCESS!
That being said, I hope I am able to accomplish this.  You know how they say things aren't always what they seem to be?  Well, the person giving the advise now might not be able to do this =P

Just try your very best to tone down your spending alright.  Make lesser phone calls.  Go out lesser with your buddies therefore not succumbing to temptation.  If you want a difference in the thickness of your wallet and the size of your bank account, you are the one person who can make that difference because no one else can tell you how to spend your money correctly except giving you pointers here and there.

I shall try and experiment with this and let you guys know at the same time next month to see if it worked.  Everyone, try it with me!  Lets not be broke by middle of the month the coming months!

Some behind the scenes pictures:


#7  Hahaha getting ready for picture!


#8  Ending this with a self shot <3

Have You Experienced This Before?



I don't understand some people and why they behave the way they do.  Have you ever encounter this type of people?  Most of the time they are not some random 'person' but often it is from someone from your friend list.

Scenario 1

Weirdo 1 has been in the same class as I am for 5 years and we even hang out together at times - go shopping, catch a movie and Weirdo 1 is very friendly and warm.  Then there was this one day when I saw her at a mall and she acted as though she didn't know me or didn't see me when I was walking towards her.  One of her overused tactic was to look into her handbag and rummage through her things as though a blackhole had suddenly appeared inside her handbag and sucked up whatever she was looking for.  At first I thought she was just really searching for something but after numerous accounts and also what other friends told me, I realized she was just 'avoiding' me at that very moment and the following week when I see her again she will be as friendly as ever - coming over to hug you and all.  I don't understand why she does or maybe it's the "It's not you, it's me" thing where I am so embarrassing to be acknowledge in the eyes of public that she has to avoid me.  I don't know.



#1  Do I really embarrass you that much that you gotta run and pretend that you don't know me???!

#2  Hmm.



Well maybe she has a point.  Oh well, moving on :D



Scenario 2

This happened to one of my friend, Roses* who has been working with this assignment mate for few assignments and recently when she saw Weirdo 2 coming out from the mini mart, all Roses* wanted was to wave hi at her but Weirdo 2 avoided her gaze, crosses the road to the other side of the lane and after that person walks pass her, Weirdo 2 crosses the road and comes back into the row of shops again.  I am not joking.  She did it so deliberately that it's quite unbelievable.  Funny even.  Roses* never declare the path that she's walking on was her grandfathers' road and that Weirdo 2 have to give a right of way to Jessica*.  Or Roses'* not telling me something.  She is secretly Moses and she parts people out of the way when she walks.  

OR

Scenario 3

Assignment mate again but this time it happened to me.  We had some beef going on because she wasn't performing well and I was just acting based on the orders given by our leader and that I have to monitor her work.  Its not like I want to give her a hard time or trying to act big on my own.  The fact is if I don't do it, I am gonna get screwed for not performing my 'duties'.  The 2nd day after the 'monitoring' work started, this mate can just walk pass me without so much of a blink or a nod.  She reminds me of Professor Snape but walks around in a dress instead of a robe.

I mean what the fart?  If there was something that I actively did to offend you or get you into trouble and you are angry with me, that I can understand but this is just making sure you perform for your own benefit and also for the benefit of the group as a whole and you are giving me this A-hole attitude.  Thanks but you can keep this attitude very much to yourself because you are going into that hole way faster than me. I hope you fall and you are buried so deep that no efforts can be done to dig you up :D.  Just kidding, not that vicious.  I do think you can change your attitude and treat your assignments more seriously as it affects yourself the most at the end of the day.  We are merely there to help and if you think you do not need our help, you either buck up to the standard that we need or  leave the group.

Have you ever experienced this?

or

Are you guilty of doing this? >D


And no, I do not walk around with that kind of face around town.

iPhone 5 - Like Finally

#1  Picture from money.cnn.com



Official iPhone 5 Trailer released by Apple


2 words:  Not impressed.  For someone who has been anticipated to get their hands on an iPhone or rather, the NEW iPhone (which obviously does not involve iPhone 4S), all we get is a longer version of an iPhone.  It's like Dark Knight went wrong.  Instead of seeing a whole new design of Batman after such a long time, all you get is a Batman with incomprehensible vocal cord (wait that actually happened).  What I am saying is, I am disappointed with the look of iPhone 5.  I would rather a wider screen instead of a longer one.  It feels like Tim Cook fed viagra to the iPhone instead of enlarging it.  I don't know, maybe some of you do like it longer.

Anyhoo, bout the specs- overall it's quite impressive considering its something so small and so light which you can carry everywhere.  iPhone 5 is 18% thinner than iPhone 4S which also makes it the current thinnest phone in the world (before someone else comes and make another thinner phone).  The Retina display expanded from 3.5" to 4" and that means 5 rows of icon for you users instead of the old four rows.

iPhone 5 also sport a better anti-glare screen but that does not give you an excuse to text or play games while walking and toppling into the next fountain in a mall (it really happened you know).  Another thing bout iPhone 5 which is a huge improvement in my opinion is the back of the phone.  Apple has decided to fix this flaw by replacing the glass back (which many of you has broke this part of your iPhone before) to being a metal back.  Thank goodness it's not the same type of metal as iPod 2nd Generation cause you can trace a criminals' fingerprint using that.

The new A6 chip used in the New iPad is sported in iPhone 5 as well, which means your phone works 2 times faster that the current A5.  Web pages and music loads faster naturally.

Oh for all of you camera lovers, get ready for the big thing.  When Apple released its first iPhone, we were all horrified by the camera resolution cause its plain dreadful.  Today, one of the best portable 'dslr comparable' device is your iPhone 4 or 4S and what do you know, Apple actually put in an effort to further enhance their iPhone's camera experience.  Even though the primary camera is still 8 MP, it features a f2.4 aperture and also a 28 MP panoramic picture to make your photos turn out amazing.  Below are some sample pictures released by Apple.

For a phone that weighs 112 gram, imba speed in surfing the net/play games/call etc etc and it provides such pictures with its camera - what else can you ask for?  (perhaps a bigger screen)

Anyways, the phone features better audio, smaller dock connection, iOS 6, more carriers but one thing that did not change is the battery life.  I mean it did, Apple sort of gave it a 'longer' battery life than iPhone 4S but now that it has a bigger screen and faster processor, it means giving you the same poor battery life spotted in iPhone 4S.

For those of you who can't wait to get your hands on it, congratulations if you are living in this 9 countries namely:  United States, Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong - You can get it by 21st September 2012.  The rest of the world can just wait for its presence to arrive.

Now the question is:  16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB?  And Black or White?

Quick Updates!

Quick updates for today :D




 First of all, the one that you all have been waiting for.  iPhone 5 release in another 14 hours 39 minutes (WHY SO LONG!) for those of you who are living in the GMT +8 time zone so no, technically it's not being released 'today' though it's September 12 for us.  The event at San Francisco will be launched at 0000 our time on the dot.  For those of you who are super excited and you think you can't go to bed without knowing what iPhone 5 will be like, fret not.  Follow this blog who will be covering live at the event for those of you die hard fans (me included)!


Second, I've seen this picture circulating around and I begin to wonder, are imported products always better than local products?  I mean, I saw this picture and I can't help but think - do different countries really produce such different quality of product?  Look at the above picture.

The rumour that has been circling is that the above car is an Audi (because the official Audi USA has released a statement with the above picture saying that this is a hoax).  If the above car is indeed an Audi, then you should know that some of the parts of Audi A6 (C4), (C5), (C6) and (C7) are assembled in Changchun, China.  The second thing you have to know is, the above bike is not made in Germany at all.  Gamma X is a purely China made bike.  So one myth busted today.  DO NOT believe what you see in the internet!



Third.  Planking level:  Caucasian.  It's just pure wthbbq + awesome in some sense.  I do wonder if this is photoshopped or not because logically thinking, if the escalator is going downwards, she should have rolled over and fall + getting some serious injuries.  If the escalator is going upwards, hmm.  What do you think?  She reminded me of "Look Ma, no hands!"



Fourth, whoever thought you can find such talented dancers from a rehabilitation centre.  This flashmob is done by 1,500 over inmates at the Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Centre situated in the Philippines and by far remains the most notable Michael Jackson inspired flashmob.  The song that they were dancing to is Michael Jackson's "They Don't Care About Us".  I believe there is a double meaning to this which makes it altogether more meaningful.

Fifth, it's raining again.  Perfect day for steamboat or anything hot and steamy.  Noms.

See you guys soon!

Britney and Ellen Doing Gangnam Style

This intermission is brought to you by mishberries on a slow-moving Tuesday.

Yes, as per the title says.  WHAAAAAAAT?!!!

Sorry for the double post on Gangnam Style but clearly this viral has gone all the way to America and even made it to such famous celebrities!  In the following video you will see Britney Spears and Ellen doing Gangnam Style while SIMON compliments!  Now I really wonder who else has been doing this dance - both secretly and openly. Major facepalm yo.

I kid you not.  Check this out.



Britney looks funny though lol, or maybe this dance is supposed to make you look funny.  I mean comparing this to her old style, hm.  One does wonder where did all her dancing genes went but Ellen does a perfect job lol!  She also seems to be thoroughly enjoying herself while Simon just sits at the side and laugh >D

Have fun!

The Wonders of Driving

Paddington is really cute because he is small and he is white but he often grunts and creaks and make a lot of weird noise, probably because of old age.  One side of his paw is already injured and its not functioning well =/

He looks like this <3


Illustration courtesy of kuroya_ken


If you do see him on the road, please do not come too close to say hi because he is really old and fragile.  And small.  Like comparing a Chihuahua to any other dogs in the Kingdom of Dogs.  Smallest of his kind, slowest of his kind and most fragile of his kind so please do not come and give him a scare.  He might not be able to take it.  Worst, I might not be able to take it as well.

Paddington is my 16 year old white colour Kancil inherited from my cousin.  For those of you who have no idea what a Kancil is, it's basically a smaller size of a VolksWagon Beetle but always remember to divide the price of VW Beetle by 10x with a 660 cc engine and my full tank fuel does not exceed RM 43.

For those of you who has never driven a Kancil or those smaller vehicles, you will never experience this.

The wonders of driving a small (old) car.  You could be the first in line at the traffic light but as soon as the light turns green, cars beside and behind you mysteriously disappear within 5 seconds.  If you are at the back row while waiting for the light and as soon as the light turns green, cars in front of you disappear from your sight and cars appears out of nowhere from behind, zaps past your car and disappear out of sight along with the rest.  This simply has nothing to do with me driving slow.  I do not drive slow.  I just didn't want to give Paddington a hard time.  This is to all of you who says I drive very slow T^T

If you drive at 80 km/h in a Kancil, you will be able to experience first hand of how Michael Schumacher feels every time he is on the racing track..  First is the vibration of the steering wheels.  Then the vibration of your window.  The rattling of your car door.  The rumbling noise from your car engine AND you feel like you are moving at a really fast speed because of all the surreal surrounding 'sound' it gives as though you are driving very fast but in reality, you are barely touching 80km/h and when you look out, cars are still disappearing from every direction but that might further add to the illusion that you are really driving very fast and zooming past other cars for a change!

On the other hand, the wonders of driving a big car (four by four) tends to make you flip your finger at everyone else on the road and you will be thinking that this people has not been eating because they do not even have the energy to step on their pedal at all.  Everyone seems to be crawling and trying their best to block your path.  

The wonders of driving those really big cars - Trucks, Containers, Buses.  This are the elite group of those that runs on 4 wheels because their entire family practically owns all the road in Malaysia.  They have more than 4 wheels kay.  They honk at you to force you to move out of the way.  They can stop whenever they want at wherever they want or they simply tail you so near that like it or not, you better move away if you don't want to get butt-hurt.

However, nothing beats the wonders of the classic 2 wheelers class - the bike.  Most bikers (applicable only to a certain age range) or especially in Melaka - "Mat Rempit" is by far Malaysias' proudest product.  They are all made of Iron Man or Superman quality (or so they think).  They can ride in the middle of the road, planking on their bike and zooming in and out from some random alley or field that you believe its not meant for driving without the single fear of being run over.  They call themselves Mat Rempit, I call them pea-brain.

This are the wonders of driving (applicable only in Malaysia).

Ciao-ciao :D
