Hi all! I'm not feeling well today.. Eventhough I did looked well!! Hehehe.. Anyway, my hubby & I went to the Besteastern, Gadong Mall this afternoon to do some 'business'... Hehehehe.. We've met someone on behalf of someone. Of course we were trading items & money hohohoho... But too bad, I'm not in the mood to take even a picture of those items!! I need to sleep right now.. Rest assured, I'll post what items that finally in my posessions!!! It's been a while since I wanted to get my hands on them ;)

Good night people :) ZzzZZzzzz......

Underworld 3, You're My Destiny & NO MOJO!!

Underworld 3 - The Rise Of Lycans (Movie)

I watched this movie on last Saturday w/ my dear hubby. If you love Underworld movies, don't forget to watch this latest installment too! I gave this movie 8 stars out of 10. Beware: If you don't like vampires/werewolves, then don't watch this. Don't expect this vampires/werewolves movie to be like those Twillight, ok? Heehehe.. Just telling you that they are not the same type of movies in term of violence, I hope you get what I mean. :)

You're My Destiny (Taiwan Drama Series)


I've finished watching these 39 episodes Taiwanese drama. My verdict? I love it but then towards the end (especially when it reached almost to 30s episodes) I got bored... Why? The story was so long when it could be ended at 30th episodes! Instead it had been prolong so long unnecessary!! But still this is one of the best Taiwan drama I've ever seen!! :) So I rated it 7.5 stars out of 10. If it was shorter I might gave it 8 stars!! Hehehe.. Oh yes before I forget, if you do want to watch this series, you better keep a box of tissue near you! Hehehehe...

Okay that's all for today. I still don't have any mojo in scrapping & altering.. My mojo is ZILCH, NADA... Gosh eventhough I miss it but I can't force myself!!!!! Gggrrrrr Arrrrgghhh....

~~ Heal The World ~~



Michael Jackson is one of my favourite singer since I was still small. I love most of his songs. He's a very talented singer. This song always make me cry since the 1st time I heard it. I just don't know why, but this song really never failed to touch my heart over & over again. Just close your eyes, imagines your loved ones, your loving world, your great friends & sing along this song.. You'll see what I meant..

I really hope to live in a world without war, bloodshed, crisis, poverty... I really hope this world is a better place to live... Yet, we, HUMAN keep saying we are PEACE LOVERS when the REALITY is NOT AS WHAT IT SEEMS...

~~Heal The World~~Make It A Better Place~~For You & For Me & The Entire Human Race~~

Pray For The World.. Pray For Peace.. Pray For The Humankind.. Pray For Everything To Be Good In Every Way...

Aminn...

UNTRUE & MISLEADING FACT ABOUT BRUNEI!!

Salam to all. Here I am to tell you something extremely important. I just got a message from my sister about this site, which I found very insulting to our country Brunei Darussalam. I don't know how the writer could wrote something that is so UNTRUE & MISLEADING FACTS ABOUT BRUNEI. So I urge to all of you please read this article & respond to it. I don't believe in the crap that so called writer wrote! So please click here.

What I'm trying to tell you is BRUNEI IS A VERY PEACEFUL COUNTRY, IN FACT MOST EXPARTRIATE LOVE TO LIVE HERE. WE ARE VERY PEACEFUL CREATURES, WE ARE NOT AS RACIST AS THAT WRITER CLAIMED, WE ARE NOT AS CRUEL AS HE STATED. I DON'T SEE ANY REAL PROOF OR EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT HIS ARTICLE.. IN FACT, I HAVE SOME CHRISTIAN FRIENDS, BUDDHIST FRIENDS & FREE THINKER FRIENDS & SOME OF THEM I'VE KNOWN FROM MY CHILDHOOD..SOME OF THEM ARE IN BRUNEI & YES SOME OF THEM ARE OUTSIDE BRUNEI.. YES, YOU NAME IT.. CHINESE, IBAN, DUSUN, EURASIAN, CAUCASIAN (Sp?), ETC, THEY ARE PEOPLE W/ DIFFERENT RELIGIONS. YET I DON'T HAVE TROUBLE TO MINGLE W/ THEM. IN FACT WE RESPECT EACH OTHER.

I EVEN READ AN ARTICLE WHICH I'M NOT SURE WHETHER IT'S FROM A BLOG OR WHATEVER.. BUT I READ IT & REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART CAUSE SOME MUSLIM FRIENDS WENT TO THE CHRISTIAN'S GRAVEYARD IN KB (wearing tudung/scarf! The proper attire of a muslim woman) TO PAY THEIR LAST RESPECT TO THE CHRISTIAN DECEASED. SO TELL ME, IS IT AN ACT OF CRUELTY TOWARDS OTHER PEOPLE W/ DIFFERENT RELIGIONS? I JUST WISHED THIS WRITER CAN CLEAR THIS MISLEADING FACT ABOUT BRUNEI.

Brisingr

Hi everyone! It's almost a week since the reopening of school.. Yup I'm so busy w/ school... I miss holidays!!! Wawawa...

What did I do? Nothing!! Well, I finally finished reading my Brisingr.. Hehehe.. It's indeed a very thick novel.. However I love the story line.. I even burst into tears... :'( Yup there's a part which really touched my heart... I don't have to tell you which part, so go & buy that fiction book!! Christopher Paolini indeed a very talented story teller!!

When it's come to reading a very dramatic story, I love to imagine the places, imagine that I'm one of the characters, feel how they feel, sense what they sense.. Isn't it amazing? So it's very necessary for you to have a very creative imagination, deep emotions & dare to show your feeling, i.e. laugh when it's funny, cry when it's sad.. If not, you cannot enjoy the story as much as I do :)

I can't hardly wait for his latest book!! Okay people, I'll update my blog later sometimes when I have something to post hehehe.. Bye!!

Hello again. I'm back for my 2nd post of the year 2009.. This time I present you an altered mini house. Actually I've been meaning to join the challenge of altering Maya Road Mini House.. But due to some circumstances, I couldn't join it. Anyway, I'm glad that I was able to finish this mini house in about less than 2 days. :)


Home Sweet Home :)

Lastly, Cutie Merlion was posing!! I bought this Merlion keychain during my visit to the Singapore Zoo. :) Ain't it CUTE???

All the PP I used were from Basic Grey. I used Stickles to outline the door. I painted the heart shaped chipboard using MM paints & used Distress Stickles on top of it. The felt are from Fancy Pants. The green pattern flower is from Prima Marketing. I also used Tim Holtz Distress Ink. The red specialty paper is from KI Memories. The white ribbons & white flowers I bought from a local shop, Hokko.

Thanks for Looking!! :)

Good Bye Aki Boi... :'(

I just got a msg from my youngest sis this morning. She told me Aki Boi is dead... I was so sad.. Because he was like a family member to us. He was with our family for about 10 years & several months. So he was the centre of our attention..

Aki Boi was adopted from a local vet clinic, Ani Care. His master was an Englishman. His master couldn't bring him back to his country, so he got no choice but to leave Aki & his sister. But there was a catch... If no body adopted him & his sister in 3 days, they will be euthanised.. So my sisters were happened to be there (brought a sick cat of ours, who was happened to be our 'Jewel' in the house, Princess) & when they heard the story, my sisters feel sorry for them.. At the end my sister, Tina decided to take Aki Boi first & promised the doctor that they would take his sister (because they didn't have a cage that time only a small box).

But the next day, the sister was already gone!! But to our relief, she was adopted too.. :) When we met Aki Boi for the 1st time, he's the most friendliest cat we've ever met.. But the most fierce cat when he saw other cats!!! LOL.. Tina named her Frisky Boy because he loved to eat Friskies!! But at the end we shortened it to Aki Boi! Easier to call him like that!

What really amazed us was, he didn't understand what we said!! I mean we were talking in Malay to him (ahem, yes we do speak w/ cats, mind you cats are 1 of the most intelligent animals :) yes...). Then my dad tried to speak English w/ him.. Which he responded to!!!! Hehehehe.. He turned his head to my dad!!! So we decided to speak English w/ him!! Hahahaha that was so funny..

We had to say 'Come here, boy!' He would come. We would say 'You want fish?' He responded by meowing loudly & would follow us till he got the fish!! We even said 'Chicken boy?' Ohh yes that's absolutely his favourite!! He loved to eat chicken!! Hehehe.. He's the most intelligent cat we ever had.. He even love to sleep at my hubby laps!! Which really surprised us cause he rarely got friendly w/ stranger (well my hubby is not a stranger but he's not the original resident of the house, get what I mean?Hehehe..).. Beside he got more friendlier w/ my hubby than Tina's hubby!! LOL... Ironic huh?? I guess Aki Boi like my hubby better than Tina's hubby :P

He even put his head on Tina's feet, when he saw Tina fell down the stairs.. While he put his head on Tina's feet, he looked directly to Tina's eyes.. Aww.. He was trying to soothe my sister.. Ain't he sweet?? He understood perfectly well when we were angry, mad, sad.. I mean he understood human emotion better than real human.. I'm sorry to say this, but once you love the animals, you'll get their love unconditional.. Unlike some human like friends don't understand us well.. If you're an animal lover, I'm sure you'll understand how we feel.. :(


















Farewell Aki Boi.... We will love you forever, your memories will remain with us, we will always remember you.. I'm crying again.. I couldn't stop it... Love you Aki Boi.. :'(
