please, god..

am going back to Melaka tonite..

i havent packed a thing..

am nervous.. am stressed.. and am in a mood.. a black one.. sigh..

mr. and mrs. smith

i sooooo want to be mrs. smith last nite.. sorry yang..
he was oh so cute.. and she was gorgeous!!!
but the movie was ok to good.. not as WAH!! as the 95% of War of the Worlds but not disappointing either, although, its kinda strange that the couple did managed to get away from flying bullets from all directions (with them smacked in the middle of the foray) without a scratch.. but hey, rather that than they conclude with a narration..

War of the Worlds aka "The Ferriers' Journey to Grandma's House"

we saw the movie yesterday..

i dont know what to say..

i didnt want to be a spoiler but here it goes..

95% of the movie was WAH.. WAH.. and WAH!! it was as good as the trailer made it to be.. tom cruise was as cute and droolly as ever, and the effects were nail-biting and hand-gripping (sorry yang..)

and the last 5% was... was... eh?

maybe it should be called "The Ferriers' Journey to Grandma's House" instead of "War of the Worlds" coz it did seem like that was the highpoint of the movie..

forget getting the dvd.. i will look for Independence Day dvd instead..

dear mr. spielberg,
i understand that its the ending in the book but could u at least twist it a bit so it'll be as dramatic and as 'punching' as the rest of movie? u changed most of the story-line from the book, why not the ending.... why not the ending??!!!

disclamer: this is a personal opinion.. hehehe

something smells shitty..

god, its hot.. the later in the afternoon, the hotter it gets..
i just got back from Coop, a version of Cold Storage, planning to get only chocolates for martina and dishwashing liquid (yes, periuks and pans and plates in the sink) but i ended up with 42 bucks of groceries; i got sugar, eggs, margerine, sayang's fav chocolune, chocos for martina, more choco's someone pesan from home, dishwashing liquid and sayang hair gel.. and i brought only 2 small pastic bags (paper bags at supermarkets are not free..) mak datuk oi.. heret lah balik rumah..
i was sweating like a pig, and the area smells like shit.. apparently, they spray manure somewhere when they expect a rainy day the next day.. man, tomorrow's gonna be hot, wet and shitty.. thank god, we're going out of town tomorrow.. sigh..
one more load in the dryer to pick up..

up and down

oh man, i left the vacuum downstairs..

yes, sayang's not-so-new apartment has a loft of somewhat, that has a bedroom, bathroom and a balcony.. downstairs are the kitchen, living room and a yard.. it's cool actually.. but not when u realized that u left ur ciggies downstairs early in the morning.. and then, it's my only exercise over here.. up and down the stairs..

boo boo baa baa

we had leftover lontong from dinner last nite for lunch just now.. i wished i hadnt eaten too much, now, am sleepy and feeling really really heavy..

tonite we are having dinner at erich's house, sayang's boss.. which reminds me, i have to go get some chocos for his gf.. man, i havent even showered and there's another load of laundry waiting for me..

yes, i have a thing with doing laundries, especially when there's a dryer and am not paying for electricity and water.. i cant wait to have dirty clothes so that i can do laundry again.. hahahah.. u must think am joking, but i am not.. the only thing that annoys me with doing laundry is having to fold or hang them in the closet.. sigh.. sicko..

nasi beriani resepi made easy

so that i wont forget how i cooked the nasi beriani.. it was dang good and easy!!!!!!!!! hahahaha!! the resepi on the packet suggested that u cook the chicken along with the rice, but i only eat beriani gam for that.. so, i'd substituted it with chicken stock instead to maintain the chicky taste in the nasi..

oh, thanx to maggi for a vanderfuul creation...

Ingredients
1 paket rempah nasi beriani Maggi
2 cups of beras - washed and drained
1 bawang besar - cincang
1 cube chicken stock
2 tablespoons (or more) margerine / mentega / ghee etc
different kinds of rempah ratus, amts are as per ur on taste (u have to know that i have no idea what they are called.. the easiest is to just get the already mixed ones at carrefour)
- some bunga lawang, 1 kayu manis, some cengkih, little green pods thingies, etc..
some raisins and green peas

Steps
1. Put margerine in a heated pan. Stir fry bawang and rempah ratus till golden brown.
2. Add in rempah nasi beriani and chicken stock till wangi.
3. Add in beras and stir fry till completly mixed
4. Transfer the mixed beras (rempah ratus, oil and all in the pan) into the rice cooker pot.
5. Put in water - i have no idea how much water u'll need.. for me, it depends on the level of the beras, something my mom taught me.. Stick in ur index finger till the bottom of the pot and measure the height of the beras level. then, lift ur finger and stick it in again but this time only up to the top of the beras, measure the height of the water on top of the beras. the height of ur water level should equal the height of the beras level. confuse? well, cook it as u would cook ur normal rice in the rice cooker..
6. when its cook, and the rice cooker clicked to warm, add in the raisins and peas and stir to mix well.
7. leave for few minutes and serve with rendang ayam or ayam madu or kurma, made also from either adabi or maggi... eh, at least i didnt use brahim and just pour in what's in the packet..

BMW Sauber?

BMW Sauber announcement imminent
Press conference scheduled for later today. BMW expected to unveil Sauber plans...

After months of rumour, BMW will later today hold a press conference in Germany where they will announce its plans ongoing plans with Peter Sauber’s Swiss-based F1 team. Prof. Dr. Burkhard G√∂schel (Member of the Board of Management of the BMW AG, Development and Purchasing), Dr. Mario Theissen (BMW Motorsport Director) and Peter Sauber will be present at the press conference.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! uuurrrrggggghhhhh....

NO SHIT!!!!!!!! i thot i'd slept in today coz when i woke up i was sweating and feeling so icky (the usual condition when u woke up after 12noon in malaysia) and rushed to the bathroom to bathe.. and then i saw my watch, huh? its only 845am??? r u serious?
oh well, more time to laze around and do nothing.. well, actually i have to go and do laundry.. then i might go to migros but then again, since i've forgotten what little i've learned of german language, i better not.. hehe..

no mowing..

i suck at mowing lawns... hahaha..

if we were to have a garden, yang, please get me a heavy duty motorized lawn-mower.. but then again, cutting off the grass with a gardening cutter (i have no idea what those 'macho' version of an ordinary scissors are called) can be quite therapeutic.. chomp chomp chomp.. and u see them fall down...

da da di du..

i arrived safely friday morning.. no problem with the immigration this time hehehe.. i did make the best effort to have my "sembab" face made up so that i dont look "pasar" to the finicky swiss officials..
this time the weather is terrific.. it was warm enuf, with a slight "air-conditioning" coolness effect and the sun is marvellous.. i have to say that the sun here is more "terik" than in M'sia..
so, anyways.. goddammit, i have to get used to sayangs keyboard again.. yes, its the german version where the y and z switched places, along with some other alphabet, and there are tonnes of other little signs and they have this other "shift-like" function called Alt-Gr for those extra symbols the people from this area must have loved using.. emm..for all its trouble, its pretty cool k++ (ok, that's an example where they switched the exclamation mark from shift-1 to some other place after the alphabet P) the keyboard is cordless and so does its matching mouse...
hehehe..
men, they can barely get their socks to match but when it comes to their techie stuff, by god, they have to match.. sorry yang, i just can resist.. and next time remind me to bring a keyboard from m'sia k.. love u

to see sayang

FOUR MORE DAYS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yea! yea!

bleak monday

it's a bleak, bleak monday..
somehow the tune of the original song got stuck in my head the moment i saw how cloudy the freaking sky.. and how warm and snuggly my comforter was.. uurrrggghhh.. monday.. i was late again, as usual, but it's worse nowadays coz they closed the u-turn intersection (for the other lane) after the traffic lite (somewhere at my place) and now the cars from the other lane had to make a u-turn at the traffic lite which in turn made the red lite longer and the traffic at my side of the lane worse..
i know am rambling but what the heck.. i have a pounding pain at the side of my right jaw since tuesday last week and it hurts real bad whenever i open my mouth wide.. up till now, i have three thoeries to go by; one: i have an ear infection which affected the ENT mucus-way or something, two: my right lower jaw is mis-aligned (i have no idea how this could happen since i was never involved in any jaw-misaligning-fights) and three: my wisdom tooth is peeking out..
I have a strong suspicion that it's number 3.. but WTF?? i'm reaching 30 and u're just coming out? does this mean that i can grow a little bit taller? oh, like around 4 inches more?( of my legs that is, not my head or any other part of my body) pleeeeeaaaasssseee? hmm.. fat chance, ya..

i know u can be much much faster than me if u choose too..
but until u do (choose to be fast, that is) MOVE to the left lane!!!
