the bullet test

As i'm getting married soon, i've also been thinking more about love, life, the institution of marriage, soulmates, et cetera et cetera, you get the picture.

So during lunch one day, i asked my colleagues this question :-

"Will you take a bullet for your husband?"

For their children, not necessary to ask, definitely, on a heartbeat, but for their husbands?

Most of them said dunno, never really thought of it....

Then V said maybe she will, hard to say....

After thinking really really hard, J said maybe she will too, maybe only...

A said, hahha, hahaha...didnt really answering...

Then they asked me whether i will, which i answered....well...i think i might....

But then B said...NO, I definitely wont! What for take a bullet for him, if i die liao, he will thank me by just re-marrying another, dont be stupid lar....

And then everyone said ya ya, true... do NOT take a bullet for your husband!!!

I was thinking bout that (yeah, our time is spent thinking deep and meaningful thoughts like these) for a bit when another friend pointed out this story that happened during the Sichuan earthquake in 2008...

This man was photographed carrying his dead wife on his motorcycle for a proper burial and made headlines around the world..and he was declared the perfect husband..true love, bla bla..

And then not more than 2 years later.....

yes, blissfully re-married another..

So....would you take a bullet for your husband??

So not pretty

Remember how i predicted that Blake Lively would be the 'IT' girl way back in 2008..

Yeah, i still watch Gossip Girl every now and then, me being the idiot in front of the idiot box. Blair/Leighton is also quite pretty, would love to have her lips...muaks..

But this is who i hate in the show...

This Jenny/Taylor girl...yucky, Madona has got no taste in picking her to be the face of her new fashion line...Btw, yucky girl is the one in the middle, the other girl is Madona's daughter.

Anyway, happy Friday.....!!

Bridal diet recipe No. 2

So the unhealthy sausage is still ever present, but at least there are more greens right...

This is a no brainer dish that is bland, unexciting to the taste buds, and of course, looks unappetising.... and therefore, ta-da, is bridal diet recipe no. 2....
Enjoy....or not...just be glad that you are not on a diet rendering you to eat stuff like this!

Yeah, how...

This came in the mail...


How do these people survive?


Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets. 'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter. 'You don't?' I replied. 'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply. 'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?' 'That's right.' So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets (Unbelievable but sadly true.)


I was checking out at the local Walmart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed. After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it. Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?' I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.' She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left. She had no clue to what had just happened.


A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.' (keep shuddering!!)


I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you need some help?' I asked. She replied, 'I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?' 'Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked. 'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk....' PLEASE just lay down before you hurt yourself !!!


Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier', the secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies. Brunette, by the way!! SIX A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer......' Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to emergency!'

Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid!!!!

I have my own addition to the list:


I bought this 'drain clearer' from Daiso the other day. Instructions to use were to pour 3 tablespoons of the product (in powder form) into the sink, then pour 2 cups of water (40 degrees celcius) into the sink, then then let the normal tap water run for a while. [Instructions were all in Japanese, but since i had a 7 days trip to Japan in May, it's piece a cake for me to figure it all out]. [oklah, got pictures!]

So step 1 done, step 2 was the tricky part. I got no thermometer, but i was thinking, boiling water is at 100 degrees, so it should be slightly (40) colder than the temperature of water half boiled (50). I dunno how exactly to know that lar, but somehow i had faith in my fingers' natural sensory powers...haha, aiya, anyway, cincai larrr...

So, i poured the boiling water into 2 cups, then I ....waited....for the water to cool down....wait and wait and feel the temperature and wait and wait.....(if at this stage you think i was on the right track, then i worry for you as well)...Heck, suddenly the bulb was lighted! CANT I JUST ADD SOME COLD WATER INIT, INSTEAD OF WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING!

Real brilliant, who can top that?......

Counting down...

Approximately 17 days more before the word "(near)" needs be taken off the title....

Thursday, September 9, 2010


I've been ill the past 2 days. Suddenly was just stricken with fever and sorethroat for no apparent reason. I've been diligently drinking lots of H2O, taking my Vitamins, not much fried foods (really!), carrying an umbrella in the rain, and suddenly, wham bham hello inflamed throat in the middle of the nite. Fever quickly followed in the morning and rendered me unfit for work the next 2 days.

I'm now much better, although my colleagues say i still look 'face green lips white'. Oh well, at least i'm better. And oh, i lost some weight too, my skirt is a bit looser. (bridezilla says yeahhhh!! :-) some good did come out of it.

And CY has been sweet as well, driving all the way down to KL to drive me to the clinic and then return to Shah Alam to work, and bringing me dinner again that evening. But of course, the sarcastic and critical voice in my head will still say things like "Oh, he's got flexi hours with work" and "He drives far to see his friends too". How ungrateful. Sometimes, one really need to silence that critical voice and just be at peace with life's simple offerings.

Okayyy, i've lost the plot...gotta go take my medication now...truly, i'm still taking antibiotics.....and peeps, do take care of your health, we take health for granted really, until we get sick, and we cant drive, we cant work, we only eat wholemeal bread for lunch, dinner and supper....ok i shut up. Now.

The ones that didnt make the cut

We went to choose the 65 pics that will make it into the album without much fanfare. It was pretty easy *sarcastic*, with cy keeps saying cincai to everything i ask his opinion on. So we had chosen our main frame, the parents' frames, the jimui pics, the album design, bla bla, in just under 2 hours. We had the soft copies of all the pics to choose aforehand, and therefore made things easier. Not that many 'wow' pics to choose from made it even more easy. Hmmmm....lucky or not...*shrug*

And so at the end of the day, we only added something like rm120 for 2 new designs, i managed to keep it at 65 pics without adding any extra poses. Very good job, Denise!

Anyway, these are the ones that didnt make the cut, they're in the bad category. No matter how much i enjoy poking fun at myself, my self-depreciating humour still has not gotten to the stage where i'll put up the worse and worst categories' pics yet ya.......Heh.

Weird head angle. Guess i'm not that much shorter than cy.

Big face and bigger arms, although everything under, above, centre, left and right of the sun can be photoshopped these days.

I think this is somewhat cute, with my pretty woman wannabe smile and cy's fake one. I did enquire whether ppl will photoshop 'away' the cleavage and was dismissed with a 'chisin, where add cleavage got lar!'

Stiff and stiff

Like Sylvester waiting to pounce on an unsuspecting Tweety.

Cy's bitten by insect just behind his ear. I got bout 6 bites too on my arms.

Funny leaning pose.

This is not in the bad category actually, i quite like the genuine toothy smile when sharing a laugh with Shirley, my very nice MUA.

Cy was blowing air into my mouth and made me laugh

The really bad pose aside, I'm a pd girl but i didnt know such a bridge existed! I asked a few of my pd frens, they knew of it and even went there to pakto before! Wth, pakto never call me...haha..
