Great concert!


Went to Leo Ku's and Miriam Yeung's concert on last Saturday. A very great concert indeed as both of them are very talented singers and their songs are just great. Miriam is really a very sweet and pretty girl and she was very funny too. Leo Ku is cute and handsome. Oh "just deeply in love" with both of them. Two thumbs up for the whole concert. Justin was the guest of honour for the concert. Anyway, too lazy to write too much. Didn't blog for quite sometime, too many things that I would like to blog about but I just don't have the mood and the time to blog it. For the time being, enjoy the photos that I took in the concert...hehehe.

Namo amitabha!


On Friday night, Chun Nee, Cheng Ghee and I went to a very virtuous place, which is monastery. The purpose of the visit was not for praying or anything. Just got to know from Cheng Ghee that the monastery was nicely decorated for the past Chinese New Year celebration. The purpose of the visit was to have some snapshots. The monastery is called Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zen Monastery is located at Jenjarom, near Banting, Selangor. It was about 30-45 minutes drive from Bukit Tinggi, Klang. Before reaching there, my mind was still thinking that the monastery is not much difference with any other monasteries that I went before, either in Malaysia, Singapore of Australia. Upon reaching there, I could see the lights that were decorated on the roof. By just looking at the lights, I could imagined how big the monastery is. Chun Nee and I were really mesmerized. Both of us were huge! Ok, to be honest, I never put any high hope before I went there. So, I was really fascinated by this monastery. Thought this kind of monastery can only be found in China. Two thumbs up for this FGS Dong Zen. Here are some of the pictures that we managed to take. No much time for us to walk around as it is closed at 10.00pm and we only arrived there at around 9.15pm.

One of the building which is decorated with all the tang lungs.

The moving Buddha. These Buddhas will run on the rail and stop at certain point. See the kuan yin on the left? The kuan yin will sprinkle "holy" water to the crowds.

The wishing candles. It is said that these candles will bring harmony to the family and it is also said that if you often lit these candles, it is believed that your eyes will look very nice.

Hoping that my family will live peacefully.

The lotus shaped candle that I lit.

Tang lungs, tang lungs and tang's just everywhere.

The big Buddha at the back.

The big Buddha again.

Life is so difficult


My dearest LKC is too smart in calculating every cents and dollars. Before he left for Phillipines, we already had a gift-meal system. So, what is this gift-meal system? It is a system whereby when he purchases something for me, I will have to pay him back a meal in exchange of the present. During the CNY, we went to purchase Leo Ku's and Miriam Yeung's concert tickets. The tickets cost us around RM500. In exchange of the tickets, I have to pay him back 3 meals. So, when we came back to KL after the CNY holiday, I already paid him back one dinner at the Esquire Kitchen. So only left 2 meals that I need to clear off. today, I had to bargain with him for the meals that I owed him. Here's our conversation for this evening:-
LKC: I bought you 3 Guess T-Shirts, costs around RM200. So, this will be your valentine's day presents. What did you get for me for valentine's day?
Me: Eh...I haven't got anything for you. Why not I treat you a dinner.
LKC: OK. One piece is very nice one, I like it very much, I'm sure you'll like it too.
Me: What if I don't like it?
LKC: I'm sure you'll like it. If you like it, then another 1 meal for me.
Me: Cheh...I can choose not to tell you even if I like it.
LKC: If you wear it, that means you like it.
Me: Huh...where got such thing. 1 meal = 1 meal. Like that I don't want the shirts go and sell it to other people ler.
LKC: You're sure you don't want ar...very nice one'll like it one wor...
Blah blah blah...yada yada yada...So, the conversation went on until I managed to bargain for 3 shirts = 1 meal. So, in exchange of the 3 pieces of Guess T-Shirts (Valentine's Day present from LKC), I will have to treat him for a dinner. But in this morning, I "purposely" deducted one meal from him for blaming him borrowing my notebook to his colleague without my permission. So now has became 1 meal left over (from the concert). From the balance of 1 meal being carried forward, I'm owing him 2 meals now (1 for concert, and 1 for the v day dinner).
LKC: I bought a lot of dried mangoes, 6 packets. I'll give it to you in exchange of 1 meal. Ok? So, now 4 meals.
Me: Where got 4? Just now only 2 meals.
LKC: No ar...3 lar.
Me: 2 lar...minus off this morning, you borrowed my notebook to your colleague.
LKC: lan si. Ok ok. 1 pack of dried mangoes in exchange of 1 meal. I'll give u 2. So another 2 meals. I'll give your mother another 2. So add another 2 meals. So become 6 meals now.
Me: Wahh..your dried mangoes very expensive ar?
LKC: Ya lar...very tasty one. The phillipines export the dried mangoes. Really very nice one ar. You try one, you'll sure ask for more.
Me: You give me some discounts first.
LKC: Ok lor...2 packets in exchange of 1 meal. Deal?
Me: No...3 packets for 1 meal? How much is a packet?
LKC: Around RM10 lor.
Me: Ok, then just nice. 3*RM10. Just nice for a meal.
LKC: Wah...cannot give you all. Later not enought to give your mum. I give you 2 packets, then 2 for your mum.
Me: Then 4 packets for 1 meal lor. I treat you a bit more expensive meal. A bit only ar.
LKC: Ok deal, to you like fish market. Have to bargain. So now 3 meals ar. Deal...seal. Hey, what if I give you coins, pens and souviners, can I exchange for 1 more meal?
Me: I give you back Australia's one. We exchange the sourvenirs.
LKC: Huh...I don't want Australia's one wor.
Me: You cannot choose.
Oh gosh, it's so tiring "bargaining" with this too smart LKC. There are some bargaining sessions after that, but I'm just too tired to write it somemore. Sigh...luckily, after all the bargains, I only owe him 3 meals. It's worthy to fight with him...hehehehe

Love is all around!


It's the time of the year again, it's 14th February today -- The Valentine's Day. What are you guys planning to do tonight? Happy Valentine's Day to those who are going to celebrate it. To those who are not going to celebrate it, don't be upset as you are not alone here. I am not going to celebrate this year's valentine's day as well. What's the meaning of valentine's day? Here are some comments about Valentine's day that I read from somewhere:-

"It's just another day for marketer to sell their soon-to-be-expired chocolates to the public over-priced."

"Isn't Valentine's Day is sharing how much you love your love ones? It really doesn't mean a partner. I believe all our parents would want a valentine's day gift from us. hehehe. So sweet isn't it. No one is a loser on Valentine's Day."

"There's only 1 Cupid and there are so many ppl around...Give him a break, have patience and wait for your turn."

"A day of joy, date, happiness and Love for those who are attached/ got gf-bf or married.. Let them have a great time with their Love! Enjoy ppl. "

Sometimes why do we care about this kind of occassions so much? Why can't we just stay at home and don't bother it's Valentine's day? Everyday can be a valentine's day if you are rich enough to go out for candle-lit dinner and being a santa-claus that will never run out of ideas of what gifts to buy for your loved one. Guys, please read the blog at the bottom which is copied from Xiaxue's blog. Totally agreed to what she wrote there.

"Feeling panicky because Valentine's day is so near?Well, if you are not as lucky as me to be female or single, then I guess you have got to buy some gifts for your loved ones.I hate stupid men who go like, "Eh, you know I love you, and flowers are just flowers, they can't prove how much I love you anyway!" and conveniently don't buy their girlfriends any flowers.Well here's a piece of information for you my dear boys...It's a secret...Girls do not actually like flowers.I KNOW RIGHT?! You gasp, but it's true! I mean yes, flowers are pretty and they smell nice, but they are but some dead plants.So why do girls still want flowers on V day?BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IS HAVING IT. And not getting flowers means your boyfriend treats you inferior to how the other boyfriends are treating their girlfriends.And that sucks - because every girl wants to feel special. :)So, if you want to make your girlfriend feel like she is the most loved among all the other girls (make her happy and you might get some V-day sex - or not), you just HAVE to get her flowers.The bigger it is, the more "face" she has. :DSadly enough, all the flowers are sold at exorbitant prices during V day!"

Guys, what are you guys still doing here? Go and get your gf a big bunch of flowers even though they said they don't like flowers. Just go and get it....hehehehe

The End of CNY


Yesterday, 15th day of CNY and also known as Chap Goh May, was the last day of CNY. No more ang pow can be collected, no more excuse to gamble, no more CNY songs playing on air, no more excuse to buy new clothes and shoes...sigh. There won't be anymore holiday mood (although, I didn't feel any since started to work last week) but at least you could still tell people that it's still CNY, sigh...not for today onwards. Checked on calendar...the next holiday will be on 11th April. Oh my gosh, what a loooooonnnng way to go.

I found this very interesting and would like to share with you guys.

Imagine yourself driving along on a wild stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:1. An old lady who is about to die.2. An old friend who once saved your life.3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life,and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However; you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again.
Answers could vary depending on the personality. However; there is a perfect answer. If you are a person who would think "out of the box" you would answer: "I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the old lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman (or man if you are a woman) of my dreams."

I would like to choose the old lady as she is going to die. But when I read at the answer...I was liked...yeah hor...why I never thought of that. I showed this personality test to some of my friends and their reaction was just exactly like me. Isn't it amazing? Why didn't we think of this answer?

Happy 4th Anniversary!


Today, 8th of February 2006 is the 4th year I'm attached to my dearest LKC. The 8th of February 2002 was the day where we went out officially as a couple. It was the first day where we held each other hands. Went for a movie on that night. "Marry a rich man" is the first movie that we watched together. Cannot really recall what else we did on that night. Oh yeah...something to add on. LKC reminded me after reading this blog. He said "Sure you don't remember what we did after movie? That was when you fell into the trap and got cheated by me for four years...muahahaha". It's already 4 years. Time really really really flies. To be honest, we had never celebrated our anniversary or valentine's day before. We never get the chance to celebrate it together...very sui. Something will happen on this day for sure. The first lips were swollen cause I banged myself to the glass sliding door at my home. Luckily the glass didn't not break, if not it was not just my lips got swollen. The second anniversary...we were separated thousands miles apart. I was in Australia on that year. The third anniversary which was last year...hmm...cannot remember what happened. I got Diarrhea or fever or something like that. And for the fourth chance to celebrate it again. We are far apart again. He's in Phillipines now...sigh. What a "tragedy".

Sigh...I'm back to work after a week of holiday. 1 week of holiday is never enough for me. Time flies...with just a blink of eyes, it's the 10th day of CNY. Everyone was busy preparing for the CNY since a month ago, the CNY just passed without you could even notice it. Had a great one-week holiday. Basically, done nothing much. Eat, sleep, drink and gamble. Met some friends whom I only meet once a year. Had some great chats with them. Came back to KL on Saturday evening and went to 1-Utama for dinner. Walked around and bought this. Nice? That's me and my LKC... hehehe

On Sunday morning, LKC left to Phillipines for 2 weeks training. In the evening, went to Chun Nee's place for a small gambling session...hehehe won RM32...thanks to Cheng Ghee for the "donation"...hehehe. Everyone was a winner except Cheng Ghee...kekeke. I don't think I lose or win any money for this Chinese New Year. That's great...well, at least I didn't take friends' money and my friends didn't take money. As long as everyone is happy, it is more than enough already.

This is the photo that I took with my niece on the first day of Chinese New Year. Oh my god, I look so fat in the picture. Wonder how many KGs I gained for this CNY...sigh. By the way, does my niece looks like me? Everyone says she looks like me....hmmm...

Do we look like a match-made in heaven? Hahaha...I'm too perasan....hehehe. Just too bored, don't know what to put on this blog. Ok, I think enough for today. Signing off. By the way, it's still Chinese New Year. So Gong Xi Fatt Chai everyone!
