In a nutshell, my life in 2008 has been 30% gorgeously & amazingly incredible and 70% really hard labor :) Especially in the last 5 months of my life which has been the most intense of all. I think having a job with The French quickly put things into perspective. And re-discovering the buzz that comes from it while enjoying this crazy life at times :)

GOD has crafted many new experiences for me this year – they have been Scary, Beautiful, Mind-numbing torture, Magical, Bleakness, Tender, Precious, Panic, Painful, Mind boggling, Wisdom and Pride moments. Part of me jumped for joy, the other was utterly floored as I choked back the tears. Ah… Such bittersweet colors of my world.

My 2009 Resolution - Enjoy Life, oh...and throw in some work once in a while! :)
Plus Go Fresh - Celebrating Fresh Moments; Keeping Your Life Fresh & Exciting, Being Cool & Staying Cool :)
The idea behind it; is all about being – having the passion to live a balanced, energized & happy life and finding fulfillment in the everyday moments.

As for the 28 Points above – it only meant more responsibilities on my shoulders, but it’s also about building myself in every aspect possible, it’s all about planning for the future...and is all about increasing my personal VALUE. See on how I’m doing in various areas in my life. Take a little time for myself. Concentrate on myself. I don’t mean being self-absorbed or selfish. It’s just for self-improvement :)

No one really knows what to make of this whole mortgage-crisis-credit-crunch-financial-meltdown-political turmoil thingy; so, in the face of these uncertain times - let’s lie low, hibernate and enjoy the pleasures of domesticity. Continuing uncertainty is the only Malaysian certainty :)
Family, Friendship, Good Food, Love & Prayers will get us all through.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped - living the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own, inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary” - unknown.

Happy New Year 2009 :)

The Shadow of the Wind

Chelsea drew 2-2 with Fulham.
And the best part is – Liverpool thumped Newcastle 5-1 :) Yay! Top of the table.

It’s been a good year for The Reds.
And this year also mark Steven Gerrard’s 10 years of Liverpool first-team football. He was given the Liverpool Captaincy at the age of 23. His career really flourishes when Michael Owen & Robbie Fowler – the 2 big beast of the Anfield dressing room had gone. And over the years, Gerrard has developed a specialization in getting Liverpool out of trouble in those critical stages.
This lad is the most complete, excellent & absolutely world-class midfield player in the whole wide world. Everywhere the ball is, he seems to be there. He’s got that unbelievable engine, desire and determination. He is influential, he is a player who commands authority and can lead by example on the pitch & inspires the team with his humility.

2009 – Go Reds! You can win the title :) We are just this close.

a slice of peacan danish

It’s a fact – it’s a Big Bad World out there…but we need to have Hope & Faith…we need to believe in the Magic, we need to believe in Happy Endings :) Even more so for me; come next year…2009.

This movie is hilarious, adequate story line and the cast was brilliant & engaging. Not to mention the producers have gotten some big talents on board as well – from Courtney Cox Arquette, Keri Russell, Guy Pearce to Lucy Lawless.

Even though it was copy & paste kind of thingy and lack of real originality from an adult point of view (the first bedtime story was set in Medieval Times, follow by the Old West, Ancient Rome and the final showdown in the Outer Space) however it still entertains – your typical predictable Disney comedy. Which all kids will love and enjoy.
Adam Sandler the goofy comedian was down-to-earth, random, fast-paced, witty and simply charming. His humor in this movie is not cringe-inducing, it’s not too in-your-face, not too intellectual, it’s just great everyday humor – just nice :)
The children (played by Jonathan Heit & Laura Kesling) are so adorable, so sweet and so whole-heartedly absolute. I want them as my own :)
Upstaging the dog for comic relief, there is Bugsy; the guinea pig with this huge pair of cute eyes. Either you love it or you find them eerie.

So, don’t stop believing :)

Catch 22

Head Office Annual Dinner & Dance, Lagoon 1 SunWay Resort Hotel & Spa: Around The World In One Night - it was a nice dinner; and it was great meeting new people, getting new perspective on things. I only knew a handful of people there, and worked my way around the table. I talked and talked and talked. The performances were outrageous, hilarious and drop dead silly. FUN!

I’m so sick of talking about work for now :)

baby love

Poor me…Iron Butterfly betul-betul torture me today.
That buyer got problem – yes, I’m a problem child. Ended up feeling like a total loser. Sometimes I wonder how foolish I can be.
I have a major problem – the heart is not at the right place at the moment. It is no longer there. And I have to fix it – quick.
One hell of a ride…but it opened up my world.

I hate to write about my failing and disappointment here...I know it is my blog and I should be able to write what I wanted...but I don't know…somehow opening up too much doesn't seems to feel right...life is a mess...I can't cope with the rest...am falling behind...am lost and confused...again! My blog revolves a lot of my life negativity isn't it?

My Baby – the Tropicana City Mall project.
Kena hentam teruk-teruk from Iron Butterfly today :(

Didn't meet the high expectations.
I’m willing to move mountains to make it work…but I still touch wood.
I’m commited to it…whatever I can do that’s humanly possible, I’m going to do it.

'Twas such a journey, took so long...*too* long, in fact. I'm glad it’s going to be over soon.
Work is a priority but not an obsession. I love it, I make sacrifices for my job and I wouldn’t put anything before it. But there are times when you have to get work out of your system.

New Page View

The sun was warm and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky!
I met the HeadHunter. I don’t consider this as an interview session; more of like an appointment to further discuss about the industry that we are in. We had coffee. It was all very casual and tongue-in-cheek. Very funny.
The HeadHunter spoke. She’s a good talker, a fine PR lady. I find her lovely, hardworking and an inspiring young woman! And we share the same name :)
I asked her various casual questions about this and that. I tried to be a bit particular and difficult. Then I asked her a lot of hard questions. She answered them well. I think she rocks. I know the English very well, too well; better than her. Therefore, she cannot con me into the job that easily :)

Work Tales – my Pa is right…I will give myself another 3 more months, if I still can’t perform…I will ask for a transfer or I will submit my love letter to Iron Butterfly. I mean, there is certainly no point in wasting my time & energy and at the end of the day, all I get is nothing. I can’t perform, I will get demoralized. Then I will feel terrible enough on my own without being made to feel terrible by someone else who’s of more superior intellect than me such as Celtic, Iron Butterfly or Rufus. I just hope my own stupidity does not kill me. I know exactly where I stand in all of this. I’m not too concerned about it. Nor am I stressed, sad or upset. Maybe you could say, I’m just a little bit impatient.

The other thing is that I feel as though there are not enough of hours in the weekend to do the stuffs that I like :(

Callum was in town for a week before leaving for Italy again. I didn’t spend the whole day thinking of him but the possibilities of us. I shouldn’t be thinking about these things - but I am.

silent killer

If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I'd roll out of bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted and go
Drink beer with the guys and chase after girls
I'd kick it with who I wanted and I'd never get confronted for it cause they stick up for me
If I were a boy I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man
I'd listen to her
Cause I know how it hurts when you lose the one you wanted
Cause he's taking you for granted and everything you had got destroyed
If I were a boy I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it's broken so they'd think that I was sleeping alone
I’d put myself first and make the rules as I go cause I know that she’ll be faithful
Waiting for me to come home, to come home
If I were a boy I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man
I'd listen to her cause I know how it hurts when you lose the one you wanted
Cause he's taking you for granted and everything you had got destroyed
It's a little too late for you to come back
Say it's just a mistake, think i'd forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you, you thought wrong
But you're just a boy
You don't understandand you don't understand, ohhhh
How it feels to love a girl
Someday you wish you were a better man
You don't listen to her
You don't care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted cause you're taking her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed
But you're just a boy

(Beyonce: If I Were A Boy) - I’m officially addicted to this song :)
