Cry while you listen

Ever cried listening to a sad song ?

Me ? Of course-lah...If not, why would I waste my time asking such a question wor ?? 
I think my case is a bit different than the majority. 

First of all, I do not understand the lyrics at all...cuz the song is in KOREAN.
How could I even feel sad when I don't know what the singer was singing in the first place ? Was I being disturbed by some problems in mind? NO...

The thing is the melody sounds so pitiful until I feel sad myself. Somemore, the singer must have sang and conveyed the sadness through his voice so well that it made me feel heavy in the heart...

When I listen to a song, I focused more on the melody than the lyrics. What for I want to understand the lyrics if the melody is no good??? 

Call me weirdo but THAT's me. I think I have not told this to anyone except my sis...
Now the whole world knows..kyahaha..

I guess this is one reason why I don't mind listening to songs of any language as long as the melody is within the genres which I like.

 ** I do not cry everytime I listened to a sad song...Im not up to that stage. However, tears might start flooding the eyes if my mood was slightly down that very day !!

Unwanted promises

I dislike it when people give me empty promises. Even if it's a minial thing, I will always bear in mind what people have promised me.

There have been many experiences where I was given empty promises!!
These people include relatives, friends and my EX as well. muhahaha

I understand some of these people are forgetful enough to remember that they did promise me such things. I dun blame them...However....

Too much promises increases hope and anticipation ...Once broken, they all come crashing down. It's painful inside and this type of wound will never be seen from the outside.

Due to constant disappointment, I try not to thorouhgly believe what others say / promise me UNTIL they really do it. Then I will sincerely thank them..

"Why did you naively believed what people said?" You might be thinking this right now. Yeah, maybe Im naive after all but Im changing dy.

What I want to say is ....dun say things lightly just for the sake of sweet talking !!
Dun tell me if you know you can't do it...

* Dun misunderstand me "beh song" u ...Im juz stating out what I feel. I do not 
  hold a grudge against you. 

Packed Work Desk !!

Yup, I have posted before and showed you how my tiny little work corner looked like. 
Around Aug - Sept 2009

Right now, there are several differences compared to what it used to look like-loh:-

1. Table looked empty and I was given a laptop to use. One fine day, it was warded into   
    the hospital and never returned.
    So NOW..I am using a desktop already. With the desktop and CPU around, my table 
    definitely has less space-loh. 

March 2010

2. A few months back : very little documents / papers 
   Now                      : almost everywhere around me. Huh !! Im definitely not conserving
                                 the environment. Mother nature will hate me for that.But it is not 
                                 my fault also bo...Most of my work requires paper ma.
3. A few months back: No personal stuff
   Now                      : Brought in a few personal stuff loh. Looked more home-like. 

More paraphernalia on the table dy..

4. A few months bck:  looked tidy everywhere
   Now                    : Not like it used to be ..

Will I be assumed as someone untidy ?? I hope not cuz im not that untidy ...of course im not a 100% tidy person. Maybe 60-80 % ?? hehehe

Tanjung Aru (Sunset Quest - K.Kinabalu Trip 2009)

A trip to the seaside nearby K.Kinabalu's airport popped out of nowhere after my parents,Aunt JJ and I dropped off Sis Marina to be on her flight back to Pen. Malaysia.

Tanjung Aru is the name of the place .
And we have been recommended to watch sunset there lah....

The place was occupied with a few food-courts with stalls mostly occupied by Malay / Indon tenants...

Investigating the place...

We simply chose one and ordered some 'snacks' since it was quite some time before the sunset moments came...

BBQ-ed Chicken Wing & Satay as snacks

Some time later, the rest of the gang came to join us. They too, came to watch the sunset which I suppose is famous looooo...

I, was busy snapping some memories of the sunset ....

Looked like some spaceship wanna land down...
The sun was swallowed by the clouds as minutes passed...
The whole sky turned red ...
I even thought I was in MARS . haha!!
The fiery colour slowly died off...
That's the final scene!!

Too bad the clouds were in everybody's way to watch at a magnificent sunset ...
If not, it would have been better..

Then everyone left the place and continued on another venture !!

* Comments on food / snacks = OK OK Lah !! I prefer Kampar/ Lawan Kuda's Satay more...

First Dinner of 2010

DINNER TIME !! People, come grab your seats ....

2 aunts (supposed to be the 2 main cook-lah) plus Kak Supin (I suppose) cooked these dishes for 2010 New Year Day's dinner. It was nice having dinner together at aunt's place rather than scratching our heads off not being able to decide where to have our dinner. Some more, there were quite a lot of ingredients left from New Year Eve's BBQ Dinner.Y put them to waste & throw them into the bin ?

The busy bees setting up the makan table:-

The food as served :

Sweet & Sour Fish                  Fried Mixed Vegetable 

                                             Fried Fishballs           Long Beans with shredded meat ??

                               Fried 2 Kinds of Fish Fillet      Stir Fried Mushrooms (home recipe)

The Most Important Thing that Can't be Left Out :
Mixed Belacan Sauce 

I was extremely full after the dinner as I was asked to finish some of the food so that they won't end up in the rubbish bin....
