Confessions of a Shopaholic

Juz got back from dinner with Sue, who will be going to Hanoi this Saturday for 9 days (so jealous) for business & leisure. I am so happy coz she lend the shopaholic series to me:

Tonite I will start on this :

Mcdonald's Drive-Thru

There I was, driving through the SS15 Mcdonalds to pack something back to office.
After placing my order, I drove to pay.

This "pondan" asked me:

P: You nak set atau burger saje? (with a very angry tone)
Me: Set

He then made the clicking tongue noise and gave me a very annoying look that said "YOU ARE STUPID"

That's it lah. He sure gonna KENA from me. I have enough crap from customers to be shown a black face when I am in turn a customer.

So i asked him.

"What's your problem?"

He kept quiet and continued to calculate my change and hand it back to me abit aggresively, all the while giving me the bitchy look.

So i told HIM.

"Kalau ada period, MC lah"

He turned red. Before I drove off to get my order, I gave him my most evil and bitchiest look.

Nope, I am never going to take crap from black faced stupid waiters who can't hear an order properly. If you have the tendency to show your anger, then you are not fit to be in the customer service line. How many times have a customer scolded me in the past but I still have to keep my temper to the minimum and smile?

Up next on EPL

I juz checked the MU website and this is what i saw:

MU is playing Liverpool & Chelsea back-to-back?
And both are AWAY games ??!!!

Which idiot set the schedule of these fixtures ???

Hot & Cold days...

What kind of weather is this ? It's been raining daily since I've forgotten when.

Nowadays I keep 2 jackets in the office. And loads of hot drinks. It's just too damn cold and everyone is getting sick. Some have flu, some sore throat, some juz fever out of the blue.

On top of that, there's so many moody people around.

It must be the weather. Gloomy weather creates a gloomy atmosphere?

I dun't mind snuggling in front of a fire during cold weathers. But which house can I light a fire in Malaysia without attracting the attention of firefighters or the police or doctors from a mental hospital?

It's so difficult to dress appropriately too. You can't wear long sleeve and thick jackets coz you do not know when it will be hot and when it will turn cold. The weather changes is too extreme. I remember having lunch at Oldtown today and it was so hot. 1 hour later, it started to rain and people start sneezing.

Now i feel feverish. Blah.

Help ! The fanatic fan is online now...

I am trying to escape the question of whether I am gonna watch the match later... hehe..

I'm looking for my tattoo design now...

The meaning:

The image of tulip tattoo is very captivating and makes your senses to rouse. The tulip tattoos signify a perfect lover filled with
passion along with fame. The tulip flower symbolizes enchantment.

The best part of having tulip tattoos is that it is non controversial and has great meanings attached with it. A women having design of a tattoo looks sexier, feminine and attractive.

I want !! Googling now.......

Tulips Tattoo

The meaning of tulips is generally perfect love.

Like many flowers, different colors of tulips also often carry their own significance. Red tulips are most strongly associated with true love, while purple symbolizes royalty. The meaning of yellow tulips has evolved somewhat, from once representing hopeless love to now being a common expression for cheerful thoughts and sunshine. White tulips are used to claim worthiness or to send a message of forgiveness.

I am thinking of getting a tulips tattoo. hmmz.... Red ? Or Purple ? Or Pink (what does pink means?)

Forensic Heroes II

I am spending my quiet weekend watching this :

Cheng Kah Weng is so gorgeous ! I find Charmaine's acting slightly weird especially after "The drive of life". She does not seem fit to potray those serious lady role.

Anyway this is like the chinese CSI, so it's kinda entertaining.

I've been nursing my sick bug. For the first time, I actually sleep without my a/c for 3 days and finished my antibiotics and now I can feel my sore throat going away. It's like a miracle =)

Mikael Silvestre to Arsenal

Bye Silvestre.

I don't know why you choose Arsenal but good luck.

Thanks for all the contributions to the squad & don't forget an own goal gift to MU when we play Arsenal *keke*

Friday, 22 August 2008

In this political world..

I'm sick of all the big mouths. Why can't everyone stop the assumptions and do their work ?

Stop saying one thing and mean another !

Stop the 2 face facade!

Stop the discussion-behind-the-back boldly but stutter when facing the real thing!

Shut up !!

Fever @ Genting

Have you ever had fever in cold weather ? The last time I experienced this was back in Perth during winter. It was the most terrible feeling ever. Imagine ur already having the chills, the cold weather just makes it 10 times worse.

I had an appointment at Genting today which I couldn't afford to skip, so I went to the doc for those damn antibiotics that make people so weak. My fever didn't go away completely, I am still feeling the after effects this morning. I wore my thickest winter jacket but I can still feel the cold seeping through my bones ! I should have worn gloves and scarfs and maybe boots! No joke lah, it was like 0 degrees.

Luckily the medication and a cup of hot chocolate (which cost RM10) makes it all better. The best thing is, we stole cups from Starbucks. LOL ! It was a classic the way my colleague juz carried the cup and walk away casually. Mine, I stuffed it in my handbag. I'm a thief ! SHhh !

And you know what, while we were on our way out from the car park, there were some police inspection just before the exit. We were wondering if they were looking for the 'criminals' that stole 3 cups from Starbucks ? LOL

Birthday Celebation @ Scarlet 160808


We decided to celebrate together since our birthdays are all so close to each other. Ryan's on the 10th, mine is the 11th and Ad's on the 15th. Our buddy, Des offered to planned the party for us (thanks!) and off we go to Scarlet @ The Curve.

Drinks + Dancing + Friends. Nice!

A collage of that night:

The highlight of the evening, presenting Mr Norman:

..... who did a strip tease for us (by force) *keke*

Thanks for all the red gifts.
I'm very touched & very very happy that my friends know my colors and team =)

Manchester United 1 - Newcastle United 1

The only good thing about this match was the solid performance of Ferdinand & Vidic in the 2nd half. Other than that, the finishing was poor, midfield was in chaos and the youngsters were still inexperienced. I guess that by drawing the first match, we have handed the title over to Liverpool ? LOL

Cookie's EPL Prediction for 08/09

Can Man Utd retain the title with no new players ? They say Berbatov is on his way but this news is almost as annoying as the Ronaldo staying or leaving fiasco. I'm slightly excited with the new reserve players but I said that with Chris Eagles last season and he didn't get the chance to shine.

As usual, in accordance with the tradition, we have those Liverpool fans (back from their disastrous season) dishing out threats of winning the 3 cups. *Yawnnnnn* Maybe they will win one lah (the league cup) Must give face coz benitez did buy some English players.

Arsenal seem quiet but they will always be there.

Chelsea have another big-mouth coach. I think they can be the main title challengers.

My prediction:

1) Manchester United
2) Arsenal
3) Spurs
4) Chelsea
5) Man City
6) Liverpool


I'm so looking forward to this Sunday's first match - Manchester United v Newcastle United

Found My Lotus Domino Notebook

The quiet one hid it ! Tsk tsk.

No wonder people say quiet ones are the most dangerous ones =P

Here comes the blues

Go away !

Tuesday, 12 August 2008

The people that test my temper

My top 10 list (not in any order. Well, perhaps No 1 *keke*)

1) Liverpool fans with the "Which English team won the most European titles?"chants and still thinks that they are currently better than Manchester United. Get over it pls! That was so in the 80s era and its already more than 20 years ago!

2) People who likes to show off and brag about stuffs they know, but in reality, they do not know what the heck they're talking about and doesn't realise that we just are too nice to burst their bubbles.

3) People who latch onto you and rant about everything they can think of until your ears bleed. OH MY GOD, shuddup will you ??! Want me to gag you ?

4) People who keep commenting that not eating vegetables is not good and giving a lecture on how vegetables is so beneficial to your health during most meal times. You know what. I actually read somewhere that that eating too much vege will make your skin yellow and if your skins turns yellow, you get yellow fever and if you get yellow fever, it means you have yellow disease. (yes, i made that up...)

5) People who throw stones at dogs & thinks that dogs are dirty, evil animals. Now, how is a dog dirtier than a cat? I just do not understand this theory. Is it because dogs bark and cats meow??! Oh and if I ever catch you throwing stones at my dog, I will make you swallow them.

6) People who show their anger on their sleeves for the longest periods of time. I hate it when someone is angry and show their "black face" to the entire world. No, we do not want to know what's wrong with you. Why don't you lock yourself in a private room and get over it instead of unleashing it on poor beings like us ?

7) People who thinks that you want to know the ending of a movie or book before you have even seen it or those who keep talking to you during a movie.

8) People who 'dissapear' totally from earth after they found a bf/gf or got married & only return when they fought with their other half or they want something from you.

9) People who thinks it's so funny to tell others your personal stuffs. Will you like it if I tell your current crush that you drool when you're sleeping ? Can we all be a little bit more mature here ?

10) Negative people. When you cough, they say you have lung cancer. When you have a headache, it means you have brain tumour. When you feel slightly faint from the heat, it means you are gonna die soon. Give-me-a-break.

Where's my Lotus Domino notebook ?

I went through one week of sufferings for the notebook.

Where is it ? *sobs* :(

How to deal with Annoying People

the mooch

This is the guy who has a very close relationship with his money. Actually, he's so attached to it that he won't even use it. He'll borrow money for a table dance, he'll pretend to have lost his wallet when the bill arrives, or he simply won't be there when it's his turn to buy the next round of drinks. He always claims to be broke and constantly tries to get others to provide for him.

Solution: If it's getting out of hand, start by letting him know that you are on a tight budget too and that you can't afford to keep covering for him. If that doesn't do the trick, your only option is to take a stand. Let him know that you've reached your generosity quota and that the stream has run dry.

the showoff

This guy is not necessarily the opposite of the Mooch, but at least he won't be asking for money. This guy will never cease to brag about what he has, what he's done, or with whom he's done it. He'll demand that you pay attention to his stories, actions or possessions.

Solution: Fundamentally, he's insecure and that's why he needs you to seem interested. For him, the only way to be worth something is to surpass others in the fields where he can indeed outshine them. So you can brush him off and tell him how you feel about this annoying habit of his, but it will hurt his feelings. Do so only if he isn't a good friend otherwise.

the motor mouth

The great thing about being a man is that we can be among our male friends and not have to talk about anything irrelevant. But there are guys who suffer from this troubled personality. They talk and talk and talk and never shut up. They'll tell you about their leaky faucets, marital problems, and painful hemorrhoids. You really don't need that much information.

Solution: The easy solution is to nod and say uh-huh every once in a while to show that you're listening. Whilst you do this, think about what kind of hamburger you're going to order or how you're going to manage your next mortgage payment. Since the motor mouth is harmless, doing this will get you through the torture without making him an enemy.

the rumor mill

This annoying person will usually wind up being a woman, as guys are by and large not known gossips. Similar to the Motor Mouth, the Rumor Mill elevates yakking to an art form, by only talking about others.

Solution: Dealing with this person must be done preemptively. You have to squash the rumors before they can be used by this person as ammo and never give this chatterbox any personal information that could be spurred into gossip about you.

Get rid of a leech and tell the bully to chill...

the bloodsucker

Also known as a Leech in some circles, the Bloodsucker is one of the most infuriating personalities out there. No matter what you say to him, you're his best friend. He's absolutely convinced that you care about him as much as he cares about you. Remember Bill Murray's character in What About Bob? This guy is needy and will literally suck the life out of you.

Solution: Things can get worse when he decides to follow you around. It can even fall into the realm of stalking. If things get out of hand and he starts to seriously intrude on your personal life, set him straight. Let him know that you don't feel the same way and that he should respect your privacy and your space.

the opportunist

This person has an agenda. He may hang around you, pretend to be your friend, but deep down he is playing an angle. Perhaps he has his eye on your girlfriend or maybe he just likes to come over to your house and use your satellite TV system.

Solution: What you can do is shroud yourself in secrecy, and not let him know what's happening in your life so that he can't take advantage of it. If things go south, simply exclude him from your inner circle.

the incredible hulk

Okay, you might not actually know a guy that turns green and beefs up when he gets a paper cut. But I'm sure you know somebody who gets extremely angry, extremely fast. This guy has a temper and it might only take an ill-received comment to trigger it. This guy is dangerous because he can often get himself into more trouble than he can handle -- and take you along for the ride.

Solution: Tell him he should chill out (okay, in nicer terms) and that nobody did anything to warrant this kind of attitude. As well, don't take his outbursts personally.

the thug

The proverbial bully has a huge inferiority complex. He'll make jokes about you, get you to do things for him without any possibility of reward, and amuse himself with your pratfalls. He doesn't necessarily have anything to brag about so he'll entertain himself by tormenting those around him.

Solution: You have to realize that the Thug feeds on weakness. Like any other living organism, if you take away the nutrients, he will die. When you first realize that the person is a bully, take an immediate stand. They are like those old toy cars that drove around on their own but changed direction when faced with an obstacle. As soon as you identify the signs, set him straight and tell him you're not a pushover.

the knower of all things

Some folks are just so cocky that they think they know everything. In fact, and I'm sure you'll agree, they're the ones who are most often wrong. The reason is they are so sure of their own invulnerability that they never bother to check the facts. Only, you watch the Discovery Channel and know that aliens did not build the pyramids.

Solution: Never say: "you're wrong." Don't sink to the depths of the am-too/are-not variety. Tell him that you disagree and why. Point out explicit reasons with verifiable evidence that refute his position. Do so politely and without taking pleasure in it -- not noticeable delight anyway.


I am so scared to sleep tonight coz I dreamt of ghosts last night! There were so many of them crowding around me and I think I was trying to escape. I thought I heard children playing and laughing outside at 3am too! I do not know if I was still dreaming or it was real. My fear is of course intensified with this being the Hungry Ghost Festival month. I even imagined ghosts looking at me in my room which turns out to be my stupid black suit. In the end, I had to sleep with my lights on.

I googled for the meaning of my dream:


In general, ghosts symbolizes aspects of yourself that you fear. This may involve a painful memory, guilt, or some repressed thoughts. You may be afraid of death and dying. Alternatively, ghosts are representative of something that is no longer obtainable or within reach. It indicates a feeling of disconnection from life and society. This dream may be a calling for you to move on and abandon your outdated modes of thinking and behavior.


To dream that you are being chased, signifies that you are avoiding a situation that you do not think is conquerable. It is often a metaphor for some form of insecurity.

Chase dreams may represent your way of coping with fears, stress or various situations in your waking life. Instead of confronting the situation, you are running away and avoiding it. Ask yourself who is the one chasing you and you may gain some understanding and insight on the source of your fears and pressure.

Wtf lah. So what does it mean ? Ask yourself who is chasing you and you may gain some understanding.... ??!! I dun't even know who those ghosts are ?

I admit I am fearing something. One of them is being unable to have any recollection of the things that happened on Saturday night. I hate losing my memory.
