WICKED!!

Guess what my lovely aunty did? She purposely drove ALL THE WAY from SG to MY to deliver my birthday present!!!! My Wicked tickets!!! The pack came with 2 front row seat tickets, 2 drink vouchers and 2 gift vouchers!!!


Wicked is a Broadway musical that tells us about the story of Wizard of Oz and before Dorothy and Toto dropped in and her house crashed on the Wicked Witch of the West or in this case, Elphaba. I enjoyed Gregory Maguire's novel titled Wicked which I picked up many years ago.

I kinda like "fairy tale" history. It's like, the movie, Snow White: A Tale of Terror. Anyways, will be flying into SG and I have my whole itinerary mapped out. I wanna visit H&M, Abercrombie, Kinokuniya and my "must visit" Vivo City. I love that place!!!

Can't wait to be done with my work load so I can take a few days off and enjoy my holiday! I still cannot believe that I'll be watching Wicked up close and personal!!! Super duper stoked!!!! I don't mean to sound corny but I think I'm defying gravity already.

GROUPON: Buffet at Temptations, Renaissance Hotel.







Bought another Groupon for a buffet dinner at Temptations at Renaissance Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. This time we went with the law firm. We went with Shila, Izaati, Yan Yan, Kala and Madrekins.

If only I checked foursquare before spending 65 MYR on the vouchers. There were 20 over comments on foursquare about this place. The food wasn't good, etc. The place was impressive or maybe anywhere with a chocolate fountain is impressive to my standards but I didn't even touched the fountain because it was white chocolate.

The food was moderate and I tried most of the food and was stuff. The most delis food was the chicken bao, prawn salad, coleslaw, chicken salad, raspberry jelly and I can't remember anything else. The food wasn't that memorable.

We definitely will not return. The original price was 160 MYR, which is sooo NOT worth it!

Kant, Hobbes VS. Cunt, Calvin & Hobbes


I know that life isn't easy. I know that it things were easy, it's not worth it. I know that I should be writing my assignment and not blogging. I know I shouldn't be complaining and I should just "suck it up". I know I should be doing a lot of things, but, I now know that continuing my MA is very, very hard.

I haven't been sleeping, and when I do manage to fall asleep, I dream about Kant, Hobbes, ASEAN, Perpetual Peace, Leviathan and I wake up. I've been short tempered too. Flying into rages of fury especially when I'm driving.

My life is just Uni and assignment. LOML complains that I make LOML do his assignments as well. I'm almost always tapping away in front of the computer and LOML tries really hard to make my life easy. LOML makes sure that I eat and does the assignments next to me. I guess, it's just the companionship that makes keeps me sane. The only thing we do, is assignments.

Almost all my due dates are back-to-back. Here's a look at my loco schedule!

REGIONALISM IN ASEAN:
Essay 1: 2000 words (31 October)
Presentation: 500 words (14 November)
Essay 2: 2500 words (12 December)

THEORIES IN INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS:
Essay 1: 3000 words (09 November)

GLOBAL POLITICAL ECONOMY:
Essay Proposal: 1500 words (17 November)
Essay 1: 5000 words (6 January 2012)

What do you think of my "wonderful" life? I do however feel blessed that Madrekins is so supportive and understanding. She makes sure that I eat, and she never once pressured me with her expectations and she keeps finding ways to keep me sane.

She keeps "mi alma" strong in her own way and I'm grateful. I guess that I'll be more appreciative once this is over. I thought working was stressful but one thing about work is that, after 6pm, my stress ends and I enjoy my weekends. Studying means never ending stress and stress even during the weekends.

MA teaches me that everyone around me loves me very much. I'm surrounded with people who loves me. Thank you Lord. Amen.

Photobooth Fun!!!








Was playing with Photobooth (iPad 2) over desserts at delicious, Ms. Read and we kinda got carried away. I'm sure you've seen her in my posts before but those who do not know her, this is my sista from a different motha!!!

She's cute and kind and pretty and my sister in every way possible and I LOVE HER AND HER FAFOOOS TO BITS!!! We were the "Old Lady Ghost" and "Colgate Commercial"

I always have fun with her, even just eating. I miss her sooooo much! Since I owe her 1 blog post about how awesome she is, this blog post is dedicated to Shini Kumar.

Shopping Trip /Halloween


For Halloween, LOML got me these cute and extremely delish Godiva Caramel Apple Truffles! Really miss Godiva!!
The Cocker Spaniel was feeling really cold since it's raining nowadays. He got the blanket and I got the flu.

L-R: Mini pastries, Coleslaw and Hummous. Not bad, since it comes in a set.
This the the Chicken Lebanese Wrap. I love Middle Eastern food. Huge fan. I love Shawarma and now, Lebanese Wrap!
This was during a Halloween deco fest at 1 Utama. This is as close as I get to Halloween. This part of the world, don't really celebrate Halloween, i guess.
My feet has been aching for 2 weeks now. Decided to invest in a proper shoes such as Fitflop. Quite pricey, so I intend to wear it everyday for a year to cover the cost!


So, how was your weekend???

GROUPON: Frontera, Jaya One








Again, we recently purchased a Groupon voucher for Fajitas at Frontera in Jaya One. I love everything Spanish/Mexican but I don't quite like Fajitas. Anyways, the chicken is tenderly cooked with peppers and onions and it was delicious! I was kinda filled with Al Amar Lebanese food from Pavillion.

They seem to have a few exciting items on their menu. Will definitely give it a try. Food was good, service was moderate and ambiance was good. Makes you feel like drinking Sol: Cervizas Importadas. Too bad, the waiters don't speak Spanish though!

GROUPON: Murall Beauty House





Couple of months ago, I purchased a Groupon voucher for Keloid Treatments. Those of you who aren't aware, I have really bad keloid on my ears. It's 1cm in diameter and it's bulging out of my ears. I've lived with it for about 6 years now.

Been to many beauty clinics and sought treatment. Most of them always, almost, recommends steroid jabs. I have hormonal issues and I don't like the idea of steroids being injected into my body. Anyways, I found this offer and decided to try.

Met Kelly, she's really nice and friendly and she told me that my condition was hereditary and after 3 treatments, I will never see the keloid again. I saw the difference after 1 session. I have to stab myself in the ear and it was bleeding and after all the messiness, my ear lobe is much better.

I can finally tie my hair up and expose my ear lobes. Kelly doesn't use steroids, instead, she uses liquid nitrogen at -196 degrees sprayed directly on the keloid. Will update this post with the picture of my dried up keloid.

GROUPON: Harmony Energy Beauty, IOI Boulevard






Purchased a Groupon voucher for Harmony Energy Beauty that includes Deep Sea Mineral Salt Scrub, Steam Bath, Aromatherapy Jacuzzi and Massage lasting for a blissful 2 whole hours!!! My whole body is overworked and I was experiencing pain and lethargy in every part of my body from head to toe.

The minute me and Yan Yan stepped into the place, we were welcomed by a dimly lit, woodenly peaceful and serene ambiance. We were then ushered into a room to change into our bikinis and my plump body got wonderfully scrubbed and the scrub smelt so nice and relaxing.

She generally scrubbed me from shoulder to feet and no time to feel shy as I lay there naked, fats and tummy exposed. Then, she ushered me into a steamer. I felt like a chicken being steamed over and over again. I felt every pore being opened and my layer of fats on my skin.

I was sweating like a fat women doing push ups but i was just sitting there in the steam. After that, I enjoyed my relaxing time in the jacuzzi!!! I love being submerged in lavender smelling water until i turn into a wrinkly dry prune.

The last and final part was the massage. I throughly, immensely enjoyed my massage. The massage was done by a nice Malay lady and she massaged me real good. I was having a slight runny nose and within 3 minutes of her massaging my nose, it was gone miraculously.

For those who knows that I was suffering from a bad feet for almost 2 weeks, can be rest assured that it's gone!! Just like that!!! Gone with the wind!! You can literally hear your bones creaking and she realign my veins and blood flow system.
