Hedonistic weekend this is not, but damn it was good!

What a blast!

Unexpected long weekend turned fab & FUNtastic! A much needed change after lonnnnnnnnng period of blahness (yes, even with the business high), kept forgetting that my SOUL is bitching about me ignoring her. No wonder the pesky black moods, the restlessness!

1st up, Friday!

1st purchase, tasted blood :P, on with my spree!

Since my allocated budget doesn’t allow any last minute short get away, I did the next best thing- attempt to see if shopping will be the therapy. Heck, I need to SPEND my allocated Play $ ok! (to those who’s curious, it’s my money management system which works excellently well, I get to not only save, but invest and PLAY as well)

On impulse, I remembered my wanting to buy Swatch courtesy of their latest ad in The Sun- so damn colourful! And yes, I’m a sucker for ads. Ditto for Mcd breakfast & coffee ad. Works for me baby, works for me.

(Don’t ask me how I got insane, and dare ventured into Mad Valley on a public holiday, seriously)

Amongst others…3 tops, 2 nail polish, eye masks…

Then, impromptu meet up with long time gal pal for a pint (HAH! A pint?!). It was an emo ride that night coz 3 of us, Min, Jen, Mel used to be so happy together (cue: music) till Jen uprooted herself from Msia. We missed each other so much. Seriously, I’m thinking how on earth, and where the heck can I find such gal pals that can drink as much as i can (no, that’s not right)…where the heck to find gal pals that knows each other as we have. (cue: emo tears coming up!)

Sat nite- tonight’s gonna be a good night.

Let’s get ready with a mani & pedi…

And it doesn't cost RM60!

Then, a mmmmmmassage.

Finally after the dinosaur age, I dragged my sorry ass to get myself an overdue massage. A solid 2 hours of massage with one hour solely focusing on my battered neck & shoulders. So gooooooood.

All set for a hot night!

Date with darling & a certain hot Jap!

Cheers to Sanuki!

Forgotten the name- but yes, they serve sake! Hooray!

A happy cat!

Grease

Er…after more drinks at Changkat. Yes, it’s a must have, Ramly/ Otai after drinking session, best combo ever! (That explains why I don’t go crazy and drink regularly, please calculate how many hours I have to work out to burn those buggers off!)

Round it all up Sunday!

Well rested and with loads of happy energy to boot, I went around ‘prettying’ up our home.

Bought outside our fav veg indian shop Chat Masala in Brickfields

Planned my work for next week. And will attempt my very first home made fruit mask! (No, that photo is the one u won’t c)

DSCF2810-1

Oh, even made my bday wish-comes true note well in advance (Ok, ok, it’s my to do reminder la)

I’m one well rested, happy cat ready to face the week again with gusto, yes I am, wheee!

Extra time, what do I do? What do I do???

19.5.2010 8.10am Wed
If u have been wondering like I do, why on earth this bloody blog doesn’t have any pictures, videos, well…one day, WordPress decided to somehow screw with this non tech knowledge gal and won’t let me upload any photos at all.

I have been wanting to get it fix- ie: Pass it to Jen- my more tech friend.

Have the ‘privilege’ of sending 3 kids to school today. (Hubby/driver not feeling well).We do the car-pool thing with our neighbor  to <ohhhhhhh> (do the God-like sound here) save the environment…but I suspect hidden somewhere, is actually to save our sanity coz we get to take turns sending the kids instead of the daily madness. Yay! I don’t know the joy of polluting the environment with one kid in the car, and braving the daily traffic every single day. I really don’t know, you tell me.

So, yeah, I woke up half an hour ish earlier, didn’t kill me. In fact, felt damn good. (The quietness after the kids have been dropped off that is).

Presented with sudden extra time on my hands, I’m like a kid in a candy store! So many things, which one? Which one?

Should I write? Should I Fb (er). Should I go out for a long, lazy breakfast (my fav!!)…should I start work earlier? (Yes, even that is an option). My gym routine today will be in the evening rather than morning…so gym is out.

So, now I’m going with the flow and write, I mean typing down my ramblings in the morning. Treating my poor neglected soul squashed aside with increasing To-dos.

Looking forward to a productive day at Coconect. Missing a bit of fun last week.

Would be nicer if i can post up some photos though!

Eat Sleep Breathe…Coconect

I am utterly in love!
With my work, that is. What a difference from those long gone employed-and doing something that I don’t love days many, many moons ago.

Where being able to take a medical cert was a joy! (those days were gone during my last days in advertising where if I’m not dead, I better drag by sorry ass to work).

Now, sensing a wicked flu is sneaking up on me on a Sunday night, I’m more filled with dread than yay! Whipped up all theVit C I can get from the kitchen, loads of water…and yes, sleep sleep sleep!  Coz I’m looking forward to some kick-ass work week and lots of fun!

Flu begone! Shooo!!!!

Man In The Mirror

This tune kept running in my mind for past one week. And especially today.

If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change

Nothing can be more profound that this. Be it to be the first one to smile, when the others are frowning; Be it to give, when you don’t think you have enough to give; to love, when there’s no guarantee to be loved back; be it to be open, when you feel vulnerable.

We are all children of the world. Make That Change.

Man In The Mirror (complete with the ows, oohs, crotch grabbing and what have you-s)

I’m Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin’ My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See
Their Needs
A Summer’s Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man’s Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya’ Know
‘Cause They Got Nowhere
To Go
That’s Why I Want You To
Know

I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
(If You Wanna Make The
World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change
(Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change)
(Na Na Na, Na Na Na, Na Na,
Na Nah)

I’ve Been A Victim Of A Selfish
Kind Of Love
It’s Time That I Realize
That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me,
Pretending That They’re Not
Alone?

A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody’s Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
(Washed-Out Dream)
They Follow The Pattern Of
The Wind, Ya’ See
Cause They Got No Place
To Be
That’s Why I’m Starting With
Me
(Starting With Me!)

I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror

World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself And
Then Make A Change

(You Gotta Get It Right, While
You Got The Time)
(‘Cause When You Close Your
Heart)
You Can’t Close Your . . .Your
Mind!

Mind!)
That Man, That Man, That
