Corny and cheesey but oh, so TRUE...

9.29.10 Hardcore Apartment Hunting

Half of me is in a panic to call/shoot 100 emails out to potential apartment owners, but the other half is picking and choosing according to budget and flexible requirements. Some of them are asking for ridiculous requirements like you have to make 60,000 per year, or you have to have a guarantor who earns 80 times the rent!? You gotta be kiddin’ me right? Sheesh… Deep down inside I know that perfect apartment is out there for me, just waiting. God has put it aside just for me. Just like meeting a soul mate, if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. I’m so excited to move out, that I can taste it. I can’t wait to have a peaceful place to come home to. Finally…
~ Apartamento Hunting hardcore!!!!!

A Series of Unfortunate Events

It was a dreary rainy day from the start, with matching moods from the people walking by. True enough as I step into the office late, I get a call from my baby saying he had fainted at the 125th Street subway station while waiting for the 5 train. If that didn’t start my day off bad, I then received a call from my colleague’s sister and church friends from Malaysia of her mother’s passing. Plus my other colleague didn’t come to work because she was so worried about her father who had to be admitted due to an emergency dialysis. So there I was carrying a doom cloud but yet picking up the phones with a smile. Wow, that’s life for you...
No matter what it chooses to throw at you, it depends on how you catch it.

The Green Eyed Monster with a Rotten Black Heart

I feel like this Palestian boy right now, but instead in a violent and deadly war zone; I'm in an office.

365 Cleanse

Tried a 1-month cleanse but don't worry it's not one of those liquid diet types with only lime, and pepper juice. 365 cleanse was on sale at non other than, Wholefoods, and it cleanses while you still eat your regular meals. I was long overdue for some kind of a cleanse so I just bought it. At the end of the trial, I did feel a little bit more "cleaner". Going to need to remind myself to do it every 6 months if possible.. Need to flush a lot of crap from the system if you take a lot of crap in!

New fashion links found in Teen Vogue

I think one of the best resources for new  fashion links are of course fashion mags. Take Teen Vogue for example. Check out these new cool brands:

More Cushion Pushin'

Big props to full bodied vocalists like Adele and Beth of the band GOSSIP. It gives young girls, and even grown women a big boost for their self-esteem as they don't feel pressured to look a certain mold that mainstream artists protray in the media. And not to mention they are bursting with talent, too!

P.S: My fave Adele song is 'Chasing Pavements'

Gimme a Break

Websites such as Underground Station give us middle income peeps a chance to get at those to-die-for boots. Like these Baby Phat Nicole boots, in grey! [I'm crazy over the color grey at the mo']

Not Just for Show

Not only am I crazy about stuff to wear, and decor with; I'm a cosmetic, skincare, and beauty freak, too! Back in KL I used to go to Strip ( religiously to wax all the unsightly strays. I blame my dad's genes for the hairiness I inheritated - thanks non-present father in Bangi! Anyhoo, with waxing, there's bound to be ingrown hairs. To get rid of those pesky itches, I used to use Strip's X cream, which worked wonders. To think I was going to find it here in the US was an high expectation from my end, as I never found it or anything equally as good. Until I found Tend Skin liquid. I used some of my boyfriend's mother's stash when I was over for X'mas, (shhh!) and it worked even though I used it only once. So, there you go yet another item to add on to my endless shopping list. Phew!

Brokeback in Malaysia

Way back when I was in high school, or sekolah menengah, in KL; I would only dream of things that I wanted to own. Even when I started working I couldn't afford the better, branded stuff like say these white-framed Ray Bans I always wanted. And now I can *happy tears*... Sorry for the sop story, but honestly that's the hard knock life for you. Working hard, perserverence, and patience is worth it. Trust me ;) You will get that dream top, accessory, car, house, man - whatever - you will get it if you don't stop believing!

Speaking of which...

Since my lease for the apartment will soon be over in June, I have to start looking for more furniture, no? Don't you love bean bags, how they just follow the shape of your bottom as your crash down their cushy soft-ness? I was think about getting a Sumo bean bag, it's like a bean bag with frills! Especially the Omni :D

Confessions of an online Shopaholic

I discovered online shopping early 2009, and since then I can't stop! It's like giving yourself a present every once in a while (which is once a week in my vocab). I'm trying to stagger the purchases, and sometimes just sometimes I tend to slip and go on a shopping spree. Everywhere I look I see something that I want, and it's a plus that the stuff that I'm attracted to give to a charitable cause, which gives you more reason to just buy, buy, buy! Afterall, it isn't all in vain? Well, I must admit that some are for sheer pleasure of owning something new and different, or just plain pretty :) Like these links that I came across. God (Allah) please give me the strength! It makes me wanna bling up my phone, but the thing is I don't have a flossy phone like an iPhone, or a Blackberry. So, that gets me thinking, seeing that I'm on a roll on everything new in 2010; that a new phone is in the near future, perhaps? hehehe...

Never too Late to Start Anew

Back in 2001/02 or somewhere around there, I remember my close girlfriend N had given me the most simplest yet wisest advice that I needed to hear at that moment. I was in, I think the most darkest age in my life. I was caught up in the whole rave scene and had a very unhealthy lifestyle of recreational drugs, alcohol, sleepless nights and mal-nourished days. By that time the side effects had been full blown and I was feeling bouts of paranoia, insecurity, and depression. I confided in N at a once popular club in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia called Movement, of all the negativity that I had been feeling for what I felt was the longest time, was simply: "Just put it in a bubble and blow it away." And... I did, something so simple helped me heal from what I once thought could never be cured. The cliche is true: it's all in the mind. Even though some may say that it may be a bit too late to start a blog now, but frankly, I don't really care, Y can't I?
