I think its really cool that Google would spend time to do a simple change like this to reflect the festive season.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

YouTube was definitely in the mood.

Pleasures of Life 3: Spaghetti with a Twist! (Literally!)

November 9, 2007

It’s been a while since I wrote about my little pleasures of life. Here’s another one!

Pleasure of Life 3: Your Mom Asks You For Help

Isn’t that fun? :) When your mother is in distress… She calls you for help! And gives you the authority to play around. Muahaha. I found out my mom’s secret today.

She doesn’t know how to cook a plate of spaghetti. o.0

Naturally she asks for my help. Hehe. So I did.

And cooked up this for my brother:

spaghetti

Spaghetti + tomato sauce + Twisties! XD

This is a packet of Twisties:

Sounds icky? Tastes great. :)

Happy Birthday Malaysia!

August 31, 2007

Today we celebrate Malaysia’s 50th year of independence!

Its been 50 years since Malaysia was released from the British occupation in 1957.

I’m glad they changed the theme for this year, ‘Malaysia Gemilang’, which means Outstanding Malaysia. The past few years have always been ‘KeranaMu Malaysia’, which means Because Of You, Malaysia. The ‘Keranamu Malaysia’ song is still sung, and I’m not surprised if a new one titled ‘Malaysia Gemilang’ comes out soon.

That pic up there is one of the most seen pictures in Malaysia history. It features our first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman shouting ‘Merdeka’ (Independance) for 7 times at the Merdeka Stadium.

Today at the celebration, Prince Andrew came to see the show. I’m sure he was quite bored…? Hehe. The king and queen looked very entertained though.

Even Google is joining in the celebration:

Ironically, today’s the day Princess Diana died 10 years ago in the infamous car crash. But thats by-the-by now.

Hope this year will bring more prosperity! Happy birthday Malaysia! And Selamat Hari Kemerdekaan to all Malaysians!

21-07-07: One of the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.

July 24, 2007

Oh wow. I still remember that wonderful day. I woke up at 8.00am, wanted to continue sleeping but just couldn’t cause my head is buzzing. HP!!

So I woke up, bathed, ate and prepared to go to the bookstore at 11am, which by then it only opens. It should open at 7am, and sell “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ at 7.01am, which was done by most bookstores nationwide. But some hypermarkets is selling the book at RM69.90, which is much cheaper than the agreed RM109, a price set and agreed by the 3 major bookstores: MPH, Popular and Times. But the hypermarkets sold it at a lower price and the bookstores battled and created a controversy. So the 3 major bookstores are boycotting the books, not selling them for walk-in customers. Luckily I pre-booked my copy. Whew.

So I went to the bookstore and saw everyone carrying an orange HP goodie bag and I go ‘Oooooo’. When I got my bag, inside was THE BOOK, and a complementary T-shirt.


The HP bag. Cute right?

The shirt.


Backside of the shirt.


The books of all books.

My dad was going ‘whats all this potter mania so good about’, until he saw his colleage buying her own copy too, walking along with her sister, herself another copy. My dad was flabbergasted and we went over to chat a bit. My dad was shocked they needed to buy two copies and not share. Turns out adults can be big fans too! My dad had second thoughts and I bombed him with ‘Harry Potter is for all age groups’ talk. Hehe. So he got mildly highly interested and even wanted to read it from the start.

Then in the afternoon (I remembered I had lamb chowder for lunch, Mmmm) I went to watch “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” with my friend and my brother. I was wearing the t-shirt under shirt so it was visible. People was staring and pointing and I told my friend ‘whatever let them stare all they want real HP fan coming through!’

I have to say the movie was pretty satisfying. In the beginning, I was like ‘okay, please be better than this,’ but as it advanced to the middle part I was really liking it and in the end I went ‘WOW’. Its not very very good, but I’d say very good. I like it a lot! Now I have became a Harry/Luna shipper. I know, I know its Harry/Ginny and they have 3 kids bit whatever. Hehe. The people I really liked in the film was Bellatrix, Luna and Umbridge. They really left me an impression. Umbridge was so horribly evil but her acting was so good! Luna is very Luna-ish! She’s got style. Bellatrix is this monstrous woman whom I really enjoy watching. Pity she died in HP7. My overall rating is 9/10.

I was so hyped I even brought back the popcorn holders. Its very cool with all the characters on it.

But I threw it in the end cause my brother bit and chew his while watching the movie and it was all torn and wet. There were also popcorn stuck to the bottom. Hehe.

I wanted to start reading the book at 7.21pm, (7.21, lol) but I had to have dinner first so I only started at 8.00 and read on until 12. My eyes were very blurry then. So I went to sleep with a smile on my face. Loved this day. :)

Pleasures of Life 2: Guavas!

May 18, 2007

WTH? Guavas?

Yes. Guavas. :) I enjoy eating them so much I decided to put them on my list.

This is a guava, for those of you who dont know what it is.

Why guava you may ask? I’ll tell you why. After you so took so much effort in peeling and cutting them (okay maybe not so much, still), you just cant resist but enjoy it.

1. Peel off the skin and cut in slices

2. Put them in a pretty bowl

3. Take a packet of somboi (asam, or whatever you want to call it) , cut it open, put in a pretty little plate, and set on table.

4. Add somboi to your guava, and put it in your mouth.

5. Say, ‘Mmmmm…’

It really is very yummy! Not to mention crunchy (well for people with hard teeth like me, the seeds are quite enjoyable to bite)

Thats why guavas are on my pleasures of life list.

♥Guavas! :)
