I’m not a James Bond fan, especially not into Daniel Craig. But I felt the sudden urge to collect the full set of these:-


AaaaaHhhh! So much satisfaction!


Creativity for Annual Dinner

It’s a pleasurable experience to witness the creativity or courage of people to be outstanding during annual dinner.


There is this one guy who is always eye-catching during my company’s annual dinner every year. He had been crowned as the best dressed for the past 2 years and his creativity or should I say “courage” always surprises me.


For the 1st annual dinner I attended in year 2006, the theme was “Pearl Paradise”. The said creative guy wore the full diving suit! Oxygen tank included!


Dun play play! Full set of diving set!


Pearl Paradise: I purposely bought a hair band with counterfeit pearls for the dinner to suit the theme


Then it came the 2007 annual dinner with the theme of “A Walk down the Memory Lane”. The guy again surprised me by wearing the uniform of primary school, coupled with the nostalgic canvas schoolbag and even brought the bicycle along!


Paiseh.. I only snapped the projected image. He brought the bicycle all the way up to the grand ball room of Hilton, KL!



A Walk down the Memory Lane: I dressed like 陈宝珠!


Next, “Mystery of D’ Oriental” was chosen as the theme for the annual dinner this year. I was in anticipation to witness the creativity of that guy. My guesses were that he would dress up as a Ninja, sumo player or Chinese zombie. Guess what? Those were exactly what we had on stage as finalists for the best dressed award!


I think the sumo guy’s the most creative of all. He made his own costume!


What did I wear for this year’s annual dinner? Well, it’s gonna be my next blog entry…

Sushi! Sashimi! Wasabi!

If price is the first dictating factor (which means I can afford to visit more than once per month ) and followed by deliciousness/freshness, then my favourite Japanese restaurants around Kepong would be:-


1) Sushi Zanmai @ 1 Utama (salmon sashimi @ RM2 per slice only!)

2) Sakae Sushi


What say you?

Caviar???? @ Sushi Zanmai, 1U


A brand new nickname for my hippo:-



Remember the huge male hippo in Madagascar 2?

I wish to have….

A bridal shot like this!


Hopefully by the time I finally have the chance to get married, I won’t be too bloated and too heavy to be carried and to be spun around like this…

Something I forgot to do at the peak of Mount Kinabalu…

Sue wrote this in her Kota Kinabalu travel log:-


“sam bought a bottle of bubbles.  kononnya wanna blow it at the peak.  i can tell u she totally forgot about it haha..”


See! Even blowing the bubbles outside of my house also so nice mah!!


Seriously, don’t you think it would be a terrific scene if my blowing-bubbles-plan were to be materialized at the peak of Mount Kinabalu????


It’s too bad that I have a memory like a sieve! I totally forgot about the bottle of bubbles until I came across it while I was trying to tidy up my room just now…

I think my bosses sure suffer headache whenever they think of me…

People always advise: don’t fight with the boss. I guess I never learn….


Boss 1: You said you are very busy nowadays, but I heard you already went jogging at 6pm the other day.

Me: I wanna emphasize, I’m not free at all. I’ve done the calculation, instead of falling sick & suffering for migraine and go for MC so often, might as well I go off from work earlier for exercise.

Boss 1: I’m just kidding, don’t worry!

Me: It’s not funny, boss.


Me: Boss, do you understand what I’m trying to highlight in my email?

Boss 2: Yea, I know! You are trying to be sarcarstic!

Me: ……

Boss 2: Boss 1 and I think that you must be very free.

Me: Trust me, I’m not free at all. Instead of keeping silent about this issue, I choose to voice out.

Boss 2: Yea, I know! We are just kidding!

Me: It’s not funny, boss.

I spot you, creativity!

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
