Wow! The last week of 2012 proved to be a hectic one for me. I reckon all those prayers that some people do while sitting on their church chairs or temples succeeded in stopping the world from ending ­čśë and I was fortunately  busy not because of work but rather having a week full of fun and joy.

  1. I attended my niece’s wedding last Saturday and met up with many of my aunts and cousins.
  2. I met up with friends on Christmas eve and Christmas day
  3. I spent some quality time with mom, shopping and eating
  4. I, finally, went to Universal Studios Singapore last Thursday (more of that later).. Yeay!

Anyway, the new year is coming people. What are your plans for the countdown?

I haven’t been feeling well this past week. I’m sneezing all the time so I thought it was my allergies. After taking my allergy pills and the sneezing continues, I decided that it’s probably the flu. I took panadol for cold and that seems to do the trick although now my nose is dripping. I told Azaj that perhaps he should hook me up to a patient monitor to make sure I am alright when I sleep coz I am not breathing through my mouth. I hate being sick!

nikita

Me and Azwaj been watching this show called Nikita. It’s about an ex-agent that is trying to bring back an agency that has gone rogue. What is awesome about the show is how they trained all this agent in fighting and of course self defense. I mean Nikita is one woman you don’t want to trap in an alley. She does not need weapons.. she is lethal enough on her own but can you imagine when is armed with self defense weapons? I want to fight like her!

multifocal lensesI’ve been planning to get my multifocal lens glasses for the longest time. However I keep postponing it for no real reason. Then I decided that since today is “121212”, I thought what better way to mark the date right?

So I talked to Azwaj about it and he agreed so off we went to my optician. After trying on numerous pairs (apparently the frame got to be of a particular measurement) and taking pictures of myself at the shop (I am blind as a bat so Azwaj will take picture of me with the frames and I will look at it properly with with my glasses on), we decided on the one that looks best on me.

I can’t wait to get it but it seem since my prescription is sort of unique, they got to special order the lenses from the States which means I will only get my glasses in two weeks time.. Oh well something to look good in the New Year right?

hotcocoa-swiss-miss-singleserving-mini-marshmallows-boxI enjoy the occasional hot chocolate whenever I feel like I had too much coffee for day. So whenever I find swiss miss hot chocolate with marshmallows at the grocery shop, I know I got to get a few boxes for my pantry. Nothing like hot chocolate with marshmallow just before bedtime right? .. but then again marshmallows taste good with almost anything.. lol!

I really really really need to get some business card made.. PRONTO!!!

I was at an event yesterday and because I usually go as media, the organisers almost always want my business card and I don’t have any I always got to say.. I run out.. OMG!! so not professional right? Anyway perhaps I should get some nice cheap envelope printing done as well so that I can I send thank you cards for the invite on proper stationery..

Yeap.. definitely one of my todo list!

december

So the wedding that I was supposed to go with my mom actually turned out to be on 22nd December and not on the 2nd as told by one of my aunt. There goes my planning. But you know what.. it turned out to be blessing as I really wouldn’t be able to enjoy my trip this time knowing Smokey, my fur-kid, is not feeling well. God always does his planning right, that’s for sure.

So my USS trip is pushed back to 27th December (hoping for a sun shining day) and since 26th is my mom’s off day from her stall, everything worked out perfectly!

..oh happy December everyone! Ready or not 2013 is sneaking up on us!

I’ve always loved curtains.. what I don’t love is putting in those hooks before getting to hang them up. I dreaded doing so and even comtemplated just visiting TheCurtainShop.com for swags instead. However on my last visit to Singapore during Raya, I found some very reasonable priced ready made curtains (they used to be so expensive) that only required “buttoning”. No more hooks for me! Yeay!

I used to remember having to make dvd copies of our annual dinner and dance for my boss so that he can distribute them along to the staff. I remember waiting for hours to do that and how frustrated I would feel when the computer hangs or when I can’t do any other work because it will take up too much resources and slow down my work. I remember not many vendors were doing this kind of work then but now.. OMG.. it’s so easy to get this services done. With places like disc2day for dvd duplication sites, I will definitely not have been to stressed up then too.

I’m not sure why but my pc is running so slow these days. The thing is I’m not even surfing or being online much (except for email) because I am doing my coding off offline. After checking my pc, Azwaj thinks that it may be malware or spyware or whatever ware and he may need to go look for an online virus scanner or something.

I just hope this problem get solved quickly as I have a deadline and it’s getting closer! Yikes!

I was preparing dinner yesterday and while cutting the onions my knife slipped and I “think” I hurt my finger but since there was no blood, I didn’t think anything of it until I start washing the dishes and my finger hurt like mad. I stopped everything and upon inspection I found a part of my nail on my forefinger had broken and a little part of the skin was exposed and had turned red.

It’s not too bad but it does hurt a little when I used that particular finger.. the bad part is I don’t know what happened to that tiny part of my nail. OMG I think it got mixed up with my onion. .ol!

When my mom’s ceiling lights in her bedroom failed to work, she suspected it was the bulb. Because she couldn’t find anyone to help her, she tried to remove the cover herself using I reckon tools from places like Reid Supply. Unfortunately because of the height and because I guess she didn’t really know what she was doing, when she managed to open the cover, she lost control and dropped the glass cover. Luckily she was not hurt.

Anyway, after Goggling my heart out, I managed to find a place that sells lighting online and with a little fee they will do the installation as well the very next day. Problem solved!

A while ago, my cousin posted a picture of her and her hubby attending a wedding in Singapore. As I was looking at the photo, one thing stood out and that was her SHOES!

I immediately commented on how I love her shoes and when her husband answered I found out that was “Timberland Earthkeepers Rudston clog”. I love it so much and immediately Googgled to find how I can get my hands on them. I didn’t see the shoes on any of the local Timberland sites so not sure it I can still find it in the store :(…

So.. if anyone seen them around.. please let me know ASAP!

I love the ambiance, the pool, the comfy seat was awesome  and the food was not bad either. There was celebrities of course and  I wish I had the opportunity to take photos with them.

This month has been such a busy month that I may not have the opportunity to go back to Singapore. It’s my mom’s birthday this month and with the upcoming Hari Raya, I thought it will nice to spend some time with her. However seeing how I did go back last month and I am going back in late November, I may just cancelled my planning for this month. I also need to get some errrands done and also get Azwaj’s Ernie Ball guitar strings so I guess those things got to wait till late Nov…

Bring out the highly rated cigars coz if I was the smoking kind, I would have two since I lost 2kilo a few days ago. I am feeling so much lighter now and I think I lost inches on areas that I am trying to lose (I hope I am just not imagining them..lol). I have a target and that is to fit into that lovely dress that I bought a few months back. Get lost “FAT”.

All of us know the importance of intimacy in a relationship. For me, it is an ultimate extension of love that me and Azwaj share and that greatly strengthen the bond that we have as husband and wife. Some people may say that intimacy waiver as the couple get older as other responsibilities get priorities but we found that it just gets better with age.. lol!

Having said that, have you heard of “Empowered Products Empo Innovative Products For Wellness and Self Healing“. Well they sell sensual lubricants and libido-enhancing supplements. According to their website their woman product named “PINK” embraces the essence of what is female which is sexy, confident, playful, loving and of course unique. Pink lubricants, body care and sexual supplements promises each and every intimate experience is the most pleasurable and fulfilling it can be. The products for men called “GUN OIL”  offers men a line of high quality lubricants and sexual wellness products that turbo charge their sexual life and promote elevated sexual enjoyment and health.

With assurance like that why won’t couples give it a try right? Well why not take up their free offer and request for your  “HAPPY PACK” right tnow. I know I did.. lol!

I love home decoration ideas and always look for something different that will bring a wow factor to my home. I found some nice wall fountain here and I thought what a nice idea. I’ve ever seen something similar to a restaurant and I love how it makes me feel like I was by a stream while enjoying my meal.

I was with a friend recently and I was complaining about how much weight I have gained since I got married and how I simply hate my double chin. However this friend told me that although I am slightly over my ideal weight, I am in no way fat. I basically need to tone myself more than anything. She also told me that the “double chin” that I have is not because of my weight gain but rather because of aging. She recommended me a moisturizing cream that she is using and I am trying it out to see how it will help me.

There are so many ways to combat the process of aging nowadays. While most people only use over the counter products like creams and serum, there are others who wants fast ways to get rid of aging lines. Some people don’t mind going under the knife with their trusted plastic surgery surgeons while others prefer a less intrusive procedure that are non-surgical with minimal downtime for their transformation.

If it were up to me, I would prefer the less intrusive procedure every time (as in my keyhole surgery in May). Below is a video of Dr. Gavin Chan of the Victorian Cosmetic that shows how a dermal filler is used for cheek augmentation. Dermal fillers are used for a variety of treatment. They can revolumise areas of the face to non-surgically enhance the shape of the face, or to lift the face, as you can see from the video.

I must admit I was cringing away as I was watching the video but the patient looked really calm and there is any blood so that sort of calm me as well… and when I think about going under the knife for the same results, I think this procedure wins hands down for me.

As each day go by, my eyesight is going from bad to worse. Although I have two glasses now, one for reading and one for the normal living, I am thinking that I might need to get me bifocal lenses soon. This is because whenever the need arise for me to sign any paperwork when I am outside my home and I don’t have my reading glasses with me, I can’t read what I am signing (dangerous right). I could very well be signing my life away!

Anyway, they say bifocal lenses now does not have that line in the middle and the user need some getting used and I am trying to delay the need as long as possible but who knows.. in my impatient state, I may just get one tomorrow!

beach

I love living my current apartment. I have a great view of the city from my balcony and because we are so high up on the hills, it gets pretty windy. Sometimes I feel like I am holidaying in one of the Sunset Beach Real Estate enjoying the sun and the breeze although I am only in front of the television enjoying my sit down moments with Azwaj or the kitties.

Such bliss..

I am ecstatic today. I lost 2kilos and I didn’t even have to starve myself. I started taking this digestive enzymes to help with my digestion problems and not only does it help with all those unnecessary burping (which I do quite a bit), it also makes me less bloated. I will keep taking it and see where this leads me after which I will share with my readers what I have found.

One thing I hate about my marble flooring is that it stains so easily. Sometimes when the kitties puke (and me or Azwaj did not noticed in time), there will be a stain the next morning. Luckily most times we are able to remove it but we dread to think that we might not be able to clean  it one day.

Good thing the kitty room is a makeshift laundry area and has tiles instead. I would love to have like garage floor coverings there because they are much more hardy and can withstand the fur-kids scratches but I reckon anything is better than marble in THAT room.

Anyway, am off to bed now. Have a wonderful Thursday all!

As I mentioned in my other blog, I had a busy day today. I had errands to run this morning (again) and then it’s off to my aunt place in the afternoon. After having a hearty meal, we proceeded on to my aunt’s son place at Casablanca Condominium.

The place is really very nice. I love how the landscaping is done and the pool area is really awesome. Apparently each block have access to their very own pool area with Jacuzzi and barbecue area. Not sure if they have heated pool though coz I didn’t see any raypak heat pumps or anything like that. It was really too bad we arrived in the evening and it was already dark otherwise you will surely see some nice pictures here.

Anyway, we got an open invitation to come over again any time so I may just take up my cousin’s offer ­čÖé

rest_in_peace

 

I had guests today so when my phone beeped the sms notification, I didn’t pay much attention to it. It was only an hour later that  I realised it was from my aunt in Singapore saying that she and my mom was at my Mak Mah’s place. Mak Mah (my mom’s elder sister) had passed away.

I was in shock and immediately called my aunt. I spoke to my mom who sounded like she had been crying. Mak Mah had passed away this afternoon and she will buried tomorrow at 8am. I so wished I could be there but the timing just does not permit.

All I could do is recite lots of prayers for my late Mak Mah and pray that she is at rest.

One of the things that I would do if we have a patio (aside from having fantastic outdoor patio flooring) is to install either a big swing or a huge hammock like the picture below. I can just imagine sitting in it with my kitties all sprawl next to me while we enjoy the nice breeze and awesome view.. Sigh…

kourtney and kim takes new york

 

I was watching “Kourtney and Kim Takes New York” yesterday and it is an episode where Kim was offered to sing for “The Dream”. She was really nervous before the recording started and even more nervous as she sat in front of the microphone that she nearly gave up. Her sister persuaded her to continue with the project and she later managed to “sing” her lines. She came back a few days later after “The Dream” had completed the song and it was not bad actually. I wonder if “The Dream” had used melodyne guitar center equipment to mix the song to make it sound so..

Oh well.. will you be buying the single? lol!

I got some very talented friends who are sending out custom made Raya card and I can’t wait to receive them. However, if you are not talented as them but still want to send out customized card, why not check here for custom holiday greeting cards that you can send out to your family and friends. I mean a picture of you and loved ones on the cover of these cards can still be considered customised right?

Enjoy!

I was going my facebook timeline when I saw an offer for a phone call ASUS PadFone. As I love new gadgets I thought I’d give it check.

I’ve yet to check out this phone in detail as there are so many reviews out there but from what I can see this phone can be “docked” into its PadFone station and instantly it converted into a tablet.. then if you buy their keyboard accessory, it is instantly turned into a netbook! How awesome is it right? Three gadgets in one! I am loving the idea.

In case you are interested Ipmart is selling it at RM2,209.73.

I so love love love this phone.. lol!

I’m still having my bad tummy ache from yesterday. I suspect it was the soya bean drink that I had for breaking fast the day before.  The running to the toilet started yesterday as early as 2pm but since I was fasting and probbly coz there was nothing in the tummy to fuel it, it went on standby mode. The moment I break fast with just dates and four pieces of dimsum, the whole “get out of the way” on my run to the toilet started.

Anyway, I was planning to check out some life insurance without medical exam policy but instead I could very well be looking at medical policy instead.. lol!

Firstly I would like to thank you blogging buddy Emila. If not for her I would not have bought this package seeing how far away the beauty center is.

Anyway.. after a very satisfying spa day at Arowana Beauty Spa on 4th July, I was sort of addicted to spa-ing and after talking to Emila who said that she doesn’t mind going for the same kind of thing again, I set out to look for other offers. I found one at Sonia Beauty in Kota Damansara. That seems miles away but since Emila is family with the area, we decided to give it a go on 17th July.

eye spa treatment

The package cost us RM29.90 from Mydeal.com and it consisted of :

  • Intensive Eye Treatment
    • It was intensive indeed. My eyes were massage, masked and guasa (I think that is the right spelling) . Even my eyebrows was attended too!
  • Ultrasonic Facial
    • This was basically a basic facial
  • Upper body massage
    • I enjoyed this tremendously. The lady that attended to me was very small and petite and she climbed on on of my back and did some swaying motion on my bums.. I loved it!
  • RM100 treatment voucher
    • If the place was closer to home, I would have definitely made use of this one for another round of massage!

 

All in all, another worthwhile rainy afternoon.

Cheerio…

Whenever I look at lapel pins, it always remind me of my junior college days. I remember that I had one that that served as a school badge, one for being a school librarian, one for being on the Malay society and another one I can’t remember for what. Those were the carefree days. The days when I only had to worry about getting good grades in school.. Ahh.. miss those days!

Cheerio!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? With so many beautiful places in the world, we are definitely spoiled for choice.

I’ve never lived anywhere else apart from Singapore and Malaysia and to tell you honestly I think I would miss it too much to really move anywhere.

When I moved from Singapore to Malaysia, it wasn’t really a big deal as although most things are different, the sense of familiarity is still there. The language is the same (albeit a little different slang wise), the food is the same and well Singapore is only a few hours away. That being said, I wouldn’t mind owning overseas property perhaps in Paris (always fancy living there.. don’t ask me why coz the answer would just be .. because.. lol) or somewhere closer to home would be in Bali. I mean how awesome would it be to be able to live in your very own home while enjoying what that city or country have to offer. A home away from home.. .. that sounds so awesome!

Anyway.. yeah I wouldn’t mind owning a property in Bali.. I love Bali. I love the beaches, I love the people and their culture and most of all I love all that shopping! lol!

Oh quick shoutout to my beloved Azwaj.. Happy birthday my love!!! Love Love Love you!!

I just love my result for this quiz..


You Are Wall Street


You are the type of person who makes things happen. You are a doer.

You are multi-talented. Friends often wonder if there’s anything you can’t do.You are resourceful and capable. You have the uncanny ability to make it all work somehow.

You get results, especially when a pet project is involved. You can always find a little extra motivation.

My yearly social pass is due for renewal and while talking about it with Emila on our way to visit B in the hospital yesterday, I suddenly remembered that someone (not sure who now) had tweeted that the Damansara immigration office has moved.

So I googled it this afternoon and got the new address. Azwaj said he knows the place so that is big sigh of relief otherwise I guess I got to bring along cushion for chair to place under my bum in case we get lost.

Anyway, here’s the new address in case anyone needs it.

I absolutely love this piece of sterling silver necklace from Slane. However since the price is quite high, it’s gonna take a bit of saving on my end to make this wishlist come true.

Whatever it is, I am sure it will be worth every penny when it is in my possession. Sigh.. I’m gonna wish for it real hard.. who knows Santa might hear me this time.. lol!

Most times my furkids will play with anything we give them and that would probably unused paper bag, empty containers and strings. However sometimes, they choose what they want to play. That can be anything from my hanged towel to my vitamin bottles. At times we don’t even know what is missing till it’s time use them. Anyway cats will be cats but wouldn’t it nice if one day out of nowhere they start playing with an eisenhower dollar? hahha.. kaching!

My latest favorite habit nowadays is browsing (and shopping) at sites like groupon.my, milkadeal.com and mydeal.com. I have bought several items from them and so far am a very satisfied customer in terms of both products and delivery.

One of my buys was this spa package from Arowana Beauty Spa. It not only caught my eye because of its price  but also because of its location. Unlike some that are so far from my home, this particular spa is right up my alley so to speak.

[portfolio_slideshow slideheight=300]

As I getting excited about the package that I bought, I remembered my blogger buddy, Emila, who also lives nearby. I thought it would be nice to have company so I told her about the package to see if she was interested. She was!.. Before we knew it we were talking schedule and setting a date.

The RM39 spa package that I bought from Arowana Beauty Spa included:

  • 45-minute full body aromatherapy massage (RM78 value)
    • Love this.. the therapy room as very nice and cozy and my masseuse attended extra to all areas that I was complaining about (neck and right arm)
  • 15-minute ear candling (RM38 value)
    • I was a bit aprehensive about this after reading online how the wax can sometime do harm but after such a relaxing massage and seeing what exactly she will be using, I decided to give it go. No big deal there but I love that my masseuse actually massage my head and neck area while the ear candling was going on.
  • 60-minute face spa therapy (RM120 value)
    • This one was literally a treat for my face. My last facial was in 1999!  Anyway, I love the face and shoulder massage that followed after the facial. I’m not sure if it was just my imagination but I think I actually glowed and I could feel my face tightening after the mask and face massage.. lol! 

So to summarize the visit in one word.. FABULOUS!

Location:

Arowana Beauty Spa
No. 328, Ground Floor, Jalan Negara, Melawati Square,
Taman Melawati – 53100 Kuala Lumpur

Whether it’s December or July, it always seems the same. So many events and celebrations that call for gift-giving, and you send flowers or a gift card, perhaps a box of chocolates. Over and over. While all of this is appreciated, no doubt, it probably still caused you undo stress, agonizing over the right arrangement or store. No matter what, it seems you’re always scrambling at the last minute, because of course you don’t keep any of this on hand.

Which is where the savoir of the day comes in: Alcohol! While it might not be the right gift for everyone, it’s generally a pretty safe bet. Even non-drinkers often cook with wine, or serve it to guests in their home. Now that you can easily buy wine online for a great price (including shipping), there’s no reason not to keep a case on hand (as long as you can resist drinking it yourself!). Keep some generic greeting cards and wine gift bags in the house, and you’ll have an instant gift perfect for nearly any occasion. If this seems too impersonal, think about making your own cards. This special touch, coupled with the wine, is practically fail-safe.

If you’ve never ordered wine online, a familiar name that excels in wine and champagne delivery is Laithwaites.co.uk. You can mix and match and pick out wine based on best-sellers, grapes, region, etc. You could even have some shipped right to the gift recipient. An added bonus to keeping ‘gift-giving wine’ at home is that you save more when you buy more. And if purchasing a whole case (or more) of wine seems excessive, know that it’s become the standard for most wine drinkers because of the value. It’s only going to get better with age, after all!

Another fun way to turn wine into an easy but clever gift is to think of a theme. Maybe the gift recipient has always wanted to travel to the wine country in California. Select a wine from Sanoma Valley, and order a wine journal for them to take whenever they get there. If they’re celebrating a special occasion, give them an equally special bottle of champagne along with a sweet treat known for pairing well with champagne, like chocolate-covered strawberries. Most people just want to know you put some thought into their gift, and by following some of these tips, they’ll surely be raising their glass in your honour!

I am anxiously waiting for today’s episode of my fav soap opera, The Bold and Beautiful. I seriously can’t fathom how someone (Bill) can be so heartless to hurt Hope who has done nothing to him or his life just because he thinks that she is not good enough for his son, Liam. I mean if they didn’t get a dna paternity testing when they were trying to find out who Liam’s actual father was, I would not never have though that the two were related!

Anyway, can’t wait to see what happens today!

We all need work. So since work opportunity don’t come easy, we want to make sure we are ready and prepared to not only give an awesome interview but that we are also ready to dress to impress. So that is what the Mens Wearhouse National Suit Drive is all about. It will give candidates that can’t afford to look good for that interview the opportunity to give the best impression that they can give, attitude and clothing wise.

This year, Broadway’s biggest stars helped to support Men’s Wearhouse’s fifth annual National Suit Drive during the 66th Annual Tony Awards Backstage Creations Celebrity Retreat. Tyler Perry, Amanda Seyfried, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and John Larroquette were among the stars who personally styled professional suits to inspire looks to be donated to National Suit Drive. Their generosity will help men and women in need transition back into the workforce in each celebrity’s hometown.

Americans now can do their part to in this worthy cause. They can donate at more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse and Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores around the country from June 27 – July 31. So watch the video below and see how you can contribute.

The air quality where I live right now is less to be desired. It could be because of the no-rain situation making everyone complain of the heat but also because we are also experiencing very bad haze. I mean I can smell smoke whenever I stand on my balcony to dry to clothes. Of course that being the case, the drying now goes on inside my apartment and the sliding door leading to the balcony is not completely shut. It is good thing that the front of the apartment is facing the forest to at least I can open the front door to get some fresh air circulating in my home.

I was thinking that maybe we should get some sort of carbon monoxide alarm that or something that can monitors the air quality in my home. At least it can trigger some sort of alarm when the air quality is being compromised and I can get ready with my asthma medication.

Anyway, I hope we get some heavy rain soon.  I said “heavy” rain because although there the rain did come yesterday it was only for a few minutes and not enough to really made a difference in the air quality. ..sigh

I just loved the internet. Not only do I get my “morning paper, I also can get information on indexed annuities, stock price (not that I have any shares anywhere) and of course my favorite activity, shopping!

Speaking of shopping, Azwaj did some shopping too, on Ebay to be exact, and one (or two coz he bought one for me too) arrived today. It is a 5 in 1 wireless headphone. I am loving it so much coz now I can walk around easily while I am watching my “boldie” episodes..hehe.. Thanks Azwaj!

Have I told you I got a new phone??!! Well I did.. Yeay!!!

The phone that I am using for my Singapore number, the Sony Ericsson keeps hanging on me, so I reckon it’s time to get a replacement.  I wanted a good phone but don’t really want to spend too much on it but I do know one thing.. I wanted a HTC phone because I simply love the internet passthrough feature  (works like reverse tethering where you share your pc internet connection with your phone via usb cable)  that it has.

So I shopped around online like some sort of  yo yos, bouncing from one shop to another  and found a store in Singapore that sold the HTC Rhyme at SGD390 which is relatively cheap as even in Malaysia, the cost is still around RM1400 (thereby saving me  about RM600!).

Anyway, here she is.. I would have loved to get the plum color casing as advertised but the shop only has this greyish green one but at the price I got I am not complaining.

htc rhyme

htc rhyme has its own docking station

HTC Rhyme, made specially for women,  comes with a charm (that can dangled outside your handbag) that when attached to the audio jack will blink whenever you have a call. Handy to have when your phone is buried inside your bag somewhere. It also has it’s own docking station that can be used for charging and listening to your MP3. Super awesome!!!

Whenever I think about custom printed golf balls, I always remember this colleague I had at the last company I worked for. She loves golf ever since her hubby introduced her to it and has even joined her hubby in numerous gold tournaments. Her room is filled with medals and golf items. She was one lady easy to shop for… just buy her anything golf and you’ll put a nice big smile on her face..

Wonder whatever happened to her?

I am now in my Singapore home and recovering nicely after my surgery on 15th May. As I mentioned in my previous post, all went well with me only needing keyhole surgery. Although there is one more extra hole then the previous three in my surgery last year, I am thankful that I only have to heal from a keyhole surgery as opposed to a full bloom open one.

Anyway, I am thankful that this time I didn’t developed any fever that would need me to stay an additional night. As comfy as the hospital bed was with all the gadget, the frequent waking from the nurses to take my temperature and blood pressure and their mini ekg machine really get on my nerves especially if I was in my deep slumber. Getting back to sleep is such torture after that.

My bandages are due to be off on 20th and my appointment with the doctor is on 28th May. I am right now contemplating staying in Singapore for the whole duration especially since I don’t feel like travelling now and sitting in the bus for a solid 5hours but who know I may change my mind once my bandages are off. We’ll see.

In the meantime. I am taking it easy, making sure I walk around to get rid of all this carbon dioxide that they pumped into me for the surgery.. so.. don’t walk behind me.. lol!

My surgery went very well. Dr Wong managed to remove the cyst using keyhole surgery although I had prior surgeries before at the same place and susceptible to adhesion…. And no cancer as well. Yeayyyy!!

Recovery is also going as well as can be expected. My doctor told me that if all goes well I can go home tomorrow.. double yeay!!

Oh.. apparently for blood circulation purposes, my doctor prescribed me my very personal masseuse from 4am to 8am this morning. Awesome!

Meet her below..

So the day has finally arrived.

After numerous visit to my doctors and doing tests and countless blood drawing (I hope it’s not going to the vampires..lol), SURGERY DAY is finally here. I had a detox day yesterday which sees me running to the toilet every few minutes and despite that I still managed to launch my client’s website (pat pat on my back). Yeay!

I am getting ready now for my “check-in” to Kandang Kerbau Hospital. That’s gonna be home for the next three days or so (longer if the doctors have to open me up instead of keyhole surgery).

Can’t wait for all this to be over and maybe I’ll visit http://www.famous-smoke.com and get me some cigars to celebrate.. lol!

skinny pantsOn my last trip to Singapore, I did some shopping with mommy. We went to my favorite store in Bedok as this place never fail to bring in the kind of clothes I like.. light material and no ironing please.

This time around I asked to see if they had any comfy pants that I can use while travelling back and forth to Singapore. The sales assistant showed me a few and I feel in love on how one of them felt. It was so comfortable and sexy too.. I call it my sexy coach riding pants now (it looks somewhat like the picture on the right).. lol!

Time for a personality quiz this Wednesday. I found this Marzie‘s blog and because it is so easy and because the result is really really me, I thought I post it here for fun..



You are a rational, stable person. You have a strong head on your shoulders.
You are a good judge of character – and you don’t suffer fools gladly.

You are highly motivated and a bit of a daredevil. You crave success.Limitations and rules frustrate you, but you have enough savvy to overcome them.

You are about as tall as the average Korean woman.

I am failing miserably in my 2012 New Year Resolution. Which one? Well the one that says I would try to sleep like a normal person and be awake during the day. I am getting enough sleep just at hours that some people might consider abnormal. Because of my sleeping habits, I normally have very very late dinner and by late I mean like 10pm or so… and it is not always easy to find food at that time. Like tonight for instance, by the time we arrived at our favorite restaurant, most of the items on the menu was already gone and I ended up having t bone steak instead. Now I don’t really mind having steak coz it was delicious but I something else in mind for dinner tonight and left with no choice just don’t rub me the wrong way.

steak

Yummy !

Anyway, I will try to be more disciplined with my hours after my surgery next week. Here’s hoping I can keep my resolution ­čÖé

I am trying to rush out as much work as I can prior to my surgery next week. I got a client’s website to kick off on Friday and been so busy that sometimes I feel like a hermit not knowing what is going on in the blog world. I am also trying to not fall sick. When I went for my pre-op earlier in the month, I was sniffling away and the doctor was concern that I might be getting the flu but since there was no fever or no cough she told me to take care that does not happen as the surgery will have to be postponed if I do fall sick. This is even more so because I have asthma and if I am having cough or fever then I might get an attack while I am under anesthetic and they are worried they might be able to get the asthma attack under control and resuscitate me. Yikes!

Anyway, I’ll be so glad after all this over (God Willing). I can’t wait to be stress free from all this health issue that is bogging me down. Who knows.. I might even throw a party and get streamers and confetti by Artistry in Motion do all my decoration. Lol!  Also I love the idea of confetti raining on me as I do my celebratory dance.. I mean life is a celebration right?

Ok, back to work. Keeping a balance is not easy but I am trying for sure and so far so good..

Before knowing Azwaj, I have no knowledge of the musical instrument named Guitars. To me it just completes the ensemble of the keyboard and the drums to form a band.. lol. ..Now I have a much better appreciation of the instrument. I now know a little bit more of this instrument that my Azwaj plays and even knows that Rosewood and Ebony fretboard gives a warm, rounder sound while Maple has a bright and clear sound.

Azwaj has a few guitars that has the different fretboard and while he does not have any TASCAM Guitars, he has Fender, Ibanez, Hamer and Cort in his collection.

Now that my surgery date is finalized, me and Azwaj have a much clearer picture of when we can plan our vacation. It will definitely be sooner then later and I can’t wait.

Although some sort of Portugal holidays would be nice, this time around however, it’s more about the room or suite than anything else. I mean who wouldn’t enjoy a Portugal holiday with the wonderful weather, golden sand beaches, the luxurious hotel at economical prices and tourist attraction but since we would have already spent a bundle on my surgery, we wanted to keep this vacation local. Portugal would have to wait till another day ­čÖé

Having said that, we still want a local hotel that meet our wishlist. What’s our wishlist? Well we want a beautiful room for one as we also plan to take lots of pictures. We want a bathtub or a Jacuzzi if possible and on top of everything else, we want a private pool.  Unfortunately since the pool is not the heated kind (at least we don’t think so), we plan to go during a hot season so we can totally enjoy the pool. I mean one can’t expect to be able to swim too much if the water is too cold right?

Anyway, check out this beautiful hotel in Portugal. I hope the local hotel that we’ve chosen will be as nice!
