Read my horoscope on Facebook for today. This is what it says:

Some recent financial troubles could turn out to have a silver lining.
That electronic device or toy you or your partner wanted has suddenly gone on sale,
or a friend has a used one they are looking to unload,
or perhaps someone is willing to trade."

What the hell is "that electronic device or toy" means? Horoscopes can be really misleading and confusing. I bloody do not understand what does my horoscope says about me. Can someone please explain it to me in a more simpler manner. That's the first time, I do not understand my horoscope. Has nothing to do with my life, or for any matter. Electronic device!?!? Toy!?!?
It could mean various type of Electronic Device/Toy:
- Mobile phone
- TV (does anyone wants to unload my TV)
- Camera
- iPod
- A dildo? (how can one trade a dildo)
- Are shoes considered toys? (i wish)
if I keep listing, I won't end this post.

Aiyo, I give up!

in the idiot box

Another unproductive day. (sigh) Went for class. Had meeting for the upcoming carnival, organized by us (UniSA Yr 1 Sem 2). Will tell you more when everything is on the rolling. Stayed home and declared myself, DEAD. This is why.

Parents went to Republic. They didn't bother waking me up from my deep sleep, sadly. Thankfully, Azim was nice enough to take me out from my misery. Went to drink and that was it. I'm so f*cking lazy to do my assignment. Presentation next week. Assignment due next week. I need more days for next week.

Anyway, last Saturday a dear friend, Ling text me, "I see you on TV. Haha!". As I read it, I was wondering whether it was a joke or I'm on TV for the wrong things. (laughs) Then it occurred to me, THE FIRM, duh! The Firm is a Malaysian version of The Apprentice. And no, I am not one of the contestants but I'm working for Team Asset as a promoter. How cool, aye. Earn money and at the same time, get my 15 mins of fame. By the way, you can catch the rest of the episodes on NTV7 every Saturdays at 8.30pm! I'll be appearing in some episodes (winks).

Check it out (some other familiar faces are in it too!):

of lazy days

Is raining, yet again!? Blimeys. A wet day, to begin with. Been feeling lazy lately. It has been a week now where the rain just keeps pouring non-stop. Rain. Stop. Rain. Stop. Rain. Stop. Hate this weather as it does not permit me to do anything productive or fun. Today has been a very low day for me. Woke up in the morning and felt the weirdest feeling in my throat.
Oh crap.
It hit me.
I am sick!

Complained to mum, she touched my forehead - and she nodded, yes you are sick. So there I was, 7 am contemplating whether to head to Uni or stay in bed. But I decided, Uni it was. In that way, I won't have the thought of feeling ill and just go by my day happily. Annoyingly enough, I was coughing and sneezing the entire day. Everyone asked me, "Lish, is it winter?" People, I am sick. I was shivering the whole day in class. Excuse my winter-y outfit, please. (smiles)

Went for class till 4pm and immediately, rushed for a meeting. Got home and my sickness worsened. Right now, I'm beyond speaking. Can't seem to articulate anything out besides coughing and making quizzical hand motions to my family. Slept till about 9ish pm and here I am, lazing on my comfortable bed, flat on my tummy. (sigh)

Well, besides the so-called very "fun" day I had today, yesterday I went out for a decent outing with my good ol' lecturer, Ms T and a couple of my Unimates at Sunway Pyramid. My lecturer left to Sweden for 3 long weeks and she's back. Needed to catch up, so we went for a movie: Forgetting Sarah Marshall (Note to everyone: Please don't bother watching it in Malaysian cinemas. They censored every god damn thing. Irritated me! For this, I suggest piracy!) and had good lunch @ ThaiThai. Oh, and we visited the tattoo parlour (grins) because Ms T wanted to get a touch-up on her tat.

We had some free time to kill. And guess what we resorted to?
We played with wigs.
Imagine yourself in a Mullet, guys?
This is how you'll look!
Amir going for the straightened Mullet.
As for me, I decided since I never had long hair, let's try it!
And so I did.
Don't laugh, promise?














I know, shoot me please!

Don't you just love tattoos? (smiles)

I need to get better.
I hate this feeling when I'm hopeless.
Unable to eat properly.
Unable to go out.
Unable to talk.

"Take care of me, please?"

will somebody stop me!

I'm having the weirdest-most-craziest craving ever. Firstly, I'm dying for an ice cream for the whole f*cking day. Stomach has been screaming at me. Telling me, I'm such a lousy caretaker. Anyhoo, that's just one part of it. Another craving that I'm encountering is the urge to get "inked" again. Yupe! I want another tattoo. I don't know where, I don't know what. I just want another one! (sigh) Ideas, anyone? They always say, "Third is the charm!"

Tattoo is one thing. My other craving - TONGUE PIERCING! Goodness me. I have no idea what's wrong with me. This is the time where I need some consultations. People, help me decide! I'm afraid if i pierce my tongue, I'll lose my tastebuds forever. And hell no, I would never want that to happen. Also, after piercing my belly for four times and it still got torn, I think I'm pretty much traumatized with body piercings. Geez. Wonder whether it hurts!?



or both?

And would somebody please take me out for ice cream?
I need to kill my temptations! Anybody?

Live Unbottoned Levi's 501

Yesterday was the Live Unbottoned Levi's 501 event hosted by obviously, Levi's Malaysia. The purpose of the event was to promote their new line of denim that's apparently very flexible when worn. Anyway, that's not the main part of the event. The highlight of the event was the kick-ass performance by my dear friend, Jeevan who performed 3 songs in front of a huge crowd at Ruums, Kuala Lumpur.

Sadly, we - Azim, Trevor, Khoe, Sheng, Acap and I the supporters did not get to witness his performance. Thanks to our lack of punctuality (grins). Sorry, Jeevs! But I reckon, his performance was amazing and outrageous. Arrived at Ruums at approximately 9.25pm, when Jeevs called to say "I'm done!". Shit! The main purpose we were there for, and we did not accomplish it. Nevertheless, we stayed there to hang around. Had some beer. Watched some performances. And left at 11.30pm.

Headed back to Subang for some mamak session. The night ended young (smiles). Let's just say some were exhausted as others were "eco-ing".

about alicia chow rue huey

This posts is a tribute to Alicia Chow Rue Huey.
I repeat.
Specially for her as she requested VERY nicely.
First and foremost, we both share the same name. How ironic, isn't it? She always claim that my mother named me after her, which somehow I was born first. Duh. So now its all out, Alicia Chow. You were named AFTER me!

Something about Alicia Chow. Weirdly enough, we share the same name, our birthdays fall on the same month - March. The most important thing to differentiate the both of us is that, one has the nicer nickname whereas the other is funny enough. People call her "Ali"! Yes, I repeat ALI! No, not Ali Baba, but ALI (laughs)! Poor child must have a traumatizing childhood to be known as Ali. So now you know who has the nicer nickname (winks).

Ali is a year younger than me. Thanks to her oversize brain with a large amount of knowledge capacity that enabled her to "jump" straight to standard 5 after PTS. How smart. Anyway, since Alicia Chow has requested oh-so-very-nicely to blog about her. I shall do so. In future, please do not get us mixed up.

Name: Alicia Chow Rue Huey
DOB: 29 March 90
Height: Short (duh! I don't know the exact figure)
Weight: She claims she's fat. Go figure.
Smartness: Uber genius
Ambition: Accountant?
Hobby: Facebook
Marital Status: In a relationship with Ezwan (congrats! Sorry boys)

Physical Appearance
Face: Round
Eyes: Droopy
Skin: Quite fair-lah, quite
Hair: Short - black
She loves: Her shoulders?
She hates: Her arms
Piercings: 3
Tattoos: None, for now (grins)

That's all I can think for now, Ali. Sorry you asked me to do it instantly and this is what I've come up with so far. Will continue tomorrow. I'm tired (yawn)! Aren't you flattered? The post is about you only (laughs). Enjoy reading about yourself. Not bad, I know you quite well!

there is always moment for goodbyes

This time around the "goodbye" isn't about another farewell to a friend (I miss you, Tiffy) or to my loved ones. I've ended my service in Starbucks Coffee Malaysia, SS15. In short, I've quit. And in two weeks time, I'm officially an ex-barrista. Been faithfully working for Starbucks for a year and a half now and I guess, I got tired with the internal politics and
obviously, thanks to the "well-labour-abused" pay, RM4.75/hour.

Oh well, aside from the low pay, everywhere has politics and drama which I can't runaway from (sigh). Hence, I've decided to send in my resignation letter tomorrow. The month of August will be the last time for me to put on my Starbucks gear and work the bar with great enthusiasm. Of course that simply means;
No more free frappuccinos.
No more practicing latte art.
No more 30% DISCOUNT (shucks)!

It's been hell of a great time working with whacky partners, hipped bosses and friendly customers. Surely, I'll miss it. This is my Starbucks journey; it begins here:

First, there was the 3-day training course. To drill and to teach every aspiring barrista the tricks on how to make the perfect espresso shot, latte, mocha and what not.
After fully graduated from the training, I begun my service.
5th June 2007 to be exact (smiles).
Tiffy, remember this?
And then, there is always the proud moment when you have to make your first Caramel Macchiato. This is mine. Doesn't look like how it's suppose to be. But let me tell you, it taste better than the "supposed" Caramel Macchiato because love and effort has been put into making it.
Not to forget, the people behind Starbucks SS15 - Us, The Barristas aka the partners.
They bring the outburst and hype into the store.
Meet Ashraf Dev and Vanee.
The store manager aka THE BOSS, Jason.
A surprise birthday party for him.
Best moment began here. My first Starbucks store trip. We went to Penang for 3 days. Did everything we could do there. That is eat, eat, eat. And oh yes, drink, drink, drink. Shared ghost stories and funny momentos.
Meet Reza and Alvin.
These two are my mentors.
They were my coaches.
Meet Chin the latte art king and
the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) dude.

This is the behind-the-scene of Starbucks SS15. The infamous smoking alley. Been there, done that. Meet Hadey, Alvin, Raja and Arvin.
Year end, every Starbucks in the Klang Valley hosted a Christmas Cheer Party. I was the Santarina but somehow, my costume was an angel (laughs). Just a fun day filled with lots of joy and love, which is what Christmas is suppose to be. My duty was to keep the orphans and customers happy. Also, to spread the cheer by giving food and inevitably, my smile.

The After Party of Christmas Cheer 2007 - Maisons.
Meet Michelle.

Come 2008, we still had our outing traditions.
A small BBQ gathering at our store manager's condo.
Meet Livon.

And this is where my journey ends. Unforgettably, marked by me.

Don't be dismayed at goodbyes; a farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends. And for that - you'll always be.
