hehehhee...

hehehe... i think i'm in love with the white one..

sayang said it looks like a brake-disc... eeeiihhh..



oh, i forgot..

in my homedec post kat bawah tu, i actually wanted to tell you that eventhough the prices in homedec are amazing, we found this online electrical store that offer almost the same amazing price.

the difference may be about 50-100 bucks more, but u can get it all year round.

the bad thing is, the brands are a bit limited.

the address is http://jintexelectronics.com. i havent purchased anything yet but my brother (the kedekut one) swears by it.

so, just a note..

casual day friday

tomorrow the Co will start its pilot implementation of "casual day friday"..

oh goody...

do u think u're giving us a treat with letting us wear casuals?

but in any case, how will this affect me? HAHA!

me, the casual day everyday..
last weekend we went to Homedec.

at first, we thot of just going on saturday and get everything done in one day. but then i told hubby that that just wont cut it. we need ONE day to survey all 5 halls of homedec, that is if we survive all 5 halls, and then go home, decide on what to buy and return on sunday to seal the deal.

true enough, by the 3rd hall, i was ready to go home. oh good god, eventhough the crowd is not as big as the pc fair (which i've sworn to never ever go again) but this crowd is as trying. and the most trying thing is the fact that they bring their "whole kampung" including newborn babies in their baby strollers!!

i mean, come on! baby pun nak pilih dapur mana nak beli is it?? and while u're pushing the stroller tu, tgk lah sikit tolak kat mana, jangan dok gelek je kaki orang!

eeeiii!!

i'm bored with my iphone. i didnt even know why i bought it. oh yeah, i forgot. i bought it coz i wanted the twinkle2 casing. sigh. do u know that i'm bored with the casing as well?

urrrggghh..

one of my colleague, who is a diehard nokia and got wind of my boredom, emailed me the 3 new nokias that are coming out this month; the n8, e7 and c-something. he'd already placed an order for the n8 despite the not so cheery review and while everyone else is queuing up for the iphone 4.

my eyes went wide at the sight of the e7. i waaaant...

and then i remembered all the lights, air-conds, fans, water-heaters and zillions other stuff, not to mention the furnitures, that we need to get for our new house.. and i whimpered..

I saw them clearly today.

Wrinkles under my eyes.

Oh god...

lately, i have been obsessed with these stupid lines under my eyes. Yesterday i had a meeting with client's lawyer. i hoped she didnt noticed coz i kept looking at her face thinking how smooth her skin is [no, the tikus operating system is still the S version]. i wondered if my skin was ever that smooth when i was her age.

and then we went into discussion of PIPE, the Co's induction course for new execs and she was complaining that she'll be bored stiff there coz everyone wud be like high-school leavers. without thinking i asked how old she is.

her answer depressed me further.

she's older than me, i didnt quite remember how much older coz at that point of time i just wanted to pout and whimper.

i need to stop smoking *taking a huge drag and puff*

october

i havent post for so long. the last full post was like in feb and now it's already october.

yes, ALREADY october..

funny how time moves so fast.. it's already the 10th month of the calendar year, 3 more months to go to december before i have to start thinking of new year resolutions, again. and six more months to go to the end of the cycle. crap.

it's also already the 10th year i'm in the Co. yes, ten blardy years.. jeez, where did the time go? what did i do in the past ten years? i remembered my job interview and i remembered i had plans. what happened?

i'm bored. i can feel the boredom making me restless, irritated. things, even smallest things get on my nerves with the speed of a rocket. nis once told me that we can choose what bothers us and ignore the rest.

nis, i'm a scorpio. being emotional is like only second to being alive.

but i guess she's right too. if you let everything bothers you, if you fight all the battles, when are you going to have energy for yourself and the ones you really care about?

take a deep breath, exhale, smile and just let it go.

sometimes, somethings are just not worth it.

Its raining, its pouring.. Do i really have to go to the gym???
The tikus has a secret guilty pleasure...

Oh god, what have i done... *heheheh*

Saturday, February 27, 2010

thing are moving at a fast rate but for once i really dont mind to just sit back and watch... the truth is i am tired..

ok, the tikus will hv her condo empty come end of march. My darling tenants are mvg out to their newly (daddy-)purchased penthouse.

Yes, yes, am not only green with envy but sad like hell. They hv been the perfect tenants for the past 3 years.

So, if anybody is interested to rent a 3r2b condo at tiara ampang (at one of the lowrise) pls let me know.
i think my nokia E71 will be on sale soon, like mebe in 2weeks.

It's abt a year old white color, excellent condition. Am using it for surfing, facebook, blogging and ofcourse calls and stuff ;P

I think it'll be RM800 negotiable.
hey u mamat lembek, aku tau lah ko beli iphone. Tak payah lah nak cakap kuat2, gelak besar2, tayang2 iphone ko tu kat sini.

Bawak balik ghumah, install, cuba belajar macam mana nak guna and stop blardy irritating me, boleh tak?

3 more numbers to go.
4 more to go...

Tic... Tic... Tic... Tic...

I can feel my ears ringing..

good god, why is dis taking so bloody long????
i hv to admit that i have no patience at all for waiting - be it waiting for people, waiting for the washing machine or even waiting for food to be cooked. I cant stand it.

So sitting here at maxis klcc WAITING for my number to magically appear on the screen to get service is an excrutiating pain. A slow torturous wait while being surrounded with a bunch of pretentious loud-voice arrogant mamat lembek almost made me want to quit this place.

Sigh.

Almost...
i'd almost forgotten why i so dislike you, thank you for reminding me.

Cinta Sari Tradispa

located at the commercial center after the horribly jammed intersection of jalan cempaka and jalan ampang is the cinta sari tradispa. every day, usually after work, stuck in the jam with nothing to do but twiddle my thumb and wait, i always wonder what is it and how was it. but it never cross my mind to actually stop by and try it out. mainly because after the wordings of "Cinta Sari", the next sentence is "Tempat Istirehat", all at the same sign board.

so, me being me, of course, i would think "Tempat Istirehat" must be nothing good. i dont want to accidently enter a "men's only tempat istirehat" and embarassed myself profusely. one day, quite accidently, while surfing through my facebook notification, i came across one notification that said that one of my friend is a fan of Cinta Sari Tradispa. curious, i clicked and "OHH!" came out of my mouth.

yes, people, it is actually an actual spa and even more wonderful, it's exclusively for women only.

more curious, i went googling for it.

yes, there is a webpage: Cinta Sari Tradispa. *isnt internet wonderful?* cintasari tradispa has full range of services from massages to scrubs to facials to mani&pedi to waxing to pre wedding packages and even post birth packages! interesting huh?

so guess what did the tikus do? ;P

i called and booked myself a Vanilla Mocha spa package and mani&pedi for early Saturday morning - yes, 1030am is early morning pour moi, ok! kononnya so that i would be nicely scrubbed and massaged for the special dinner that night. *grin*

from the outside, the spa itself is very unassuming. the location, though smack in ampang, is not very strategic as it is located in the worst area of traffic jam at jalan ampang. the entrance to the commercial center is very confusing and the parking doesnt look very easy. it took me quite a while to figure out how to enter the commercial center and i thank god that it's early sat morning that the parkings are still available.

the interior though, is quite tastefully decorated. u would not have noticed that it is actually a shop lot. there are quite a number of rooms and they are all nicely decorated - yes, i peeked -the facilities are clean and it smells heavenly, well, for the lack of better words. i was pleased.

my package began with a foot bath, then a massage, scrub and milk bath. one word of warning, there are no spa panties provided. yes, you are full monty :D i dont know whether u can request for one, maybe u could..

overall, the treatment was good. the massage was better than good, or rather my masseusse is excellent. the massage is mainly balinese traditional, i think, long strokes. however, i honestly felt that the scrub was not as thorough as it should have been but the scrub itself smelled so nice that it made me crave for one of those san fran coffee vanilla mocha ice blended drinks.. the milk bath was just OK, mainly because i dont like milk that much :) hehehe yes, i know, i should have chosen something with a flower bath instead..

the young ladies working there are friendly and helpful. i got from them that they are opening another branch in setapak sometime this month due to customers' requests. but they are not closing this one in ampang because they have significant existing ampang-based clients already.

sorry i have no pictures but u can go to their webpage and get everything u want to know from there. from a client's point of view, it's worth a try and could very well be your favorite spa. except for the location, what's not to like? the price is reasonable (excellent, in fact), the facilities are nice and the treatments are better than good. for me, for sure i will be going there again :)

Legion


yes, despite maklongnye bedah's review, the tikus went to watch the Legion, sometime last last weekend.

actually, i was already ready to wait for the dvd, tak sampai hati to see hubby's face cringe or worse, out right snores in the cinema out of boredom.. but out of the blue, my sweet baby blue told me that he already reserved movie tix for us..

acho... tak sampei hati la kan nak bagi tau review dia macam kurang menarik..

but actually, i found it not quite bad..it was not good, but not that bad either.. ok, ok, like si ateen, i do have a thang for bettany ever since wimbledon.. shweeet..

and of course, sayang hated it. OMG!! it was so funny the way he described it.. it was not that it was boring, but it was just too warp-y for him.. the fate of mankind is dependent on a group of people in a god-knows-where truck-stop-diner with only an angel defending them? right... could have made it a town instead.. lolx!

Siam Body Works

sayang has, apparently, another new hobby...

he loves, LOVES, going for a massage...

*sigh*

ever since our last hols - oh, forgot, i didnt post that huh? - where we, literally, woke up, sat at the beach, went to spa, lunched, sat at the beach, dinner-ed (yes, another NOT A WORD but do i look like i care?), slept and repeated all of the above for 5 days in a row - no, i kid u not - sayang has gotten fixated with massages... oh! dats y i didnt post the hols, there's actually NOTHING to post coz i was, well, half asleep for the 5 days we were there!! kah kah kah!!! it was actually the best 5 days of the whole year of 2009.. sigh... do we really have 10 more months to go???

anyways, yes, sayang just loves massages now..

so just now, or yesterday, after whimperings of "yaaaang, jom la gie massage" for the past two weeks, we went to try Siam Body Works at Ampwalk in Ampang.. i have no desire to go way across the country to hartamas and since i have no idea what spas are good in ampang, we just picked one out of the internet, and voila, Siam Body Works..

I have never tried thai massages before.. coz one thing i know FOR SURE, thai massages HURT like hell.. a good kind of hurt, one of my colleague used to say, but hey, i am not a masochist! err, did i spell that right? but since my neck and shoulders are all achy from the meetings, papers and presentations and OMGWTF other stuff that could literally give me a doctorate in MS office programs, i relented and braved myself for this good kind of hurt..

the outlet - sorry, but i cant really call it a spa coz i equate spas with a place of sanctuary for women - is small, on the 1st floor of Ampwalk. the receiving area is simple with a small set of sofa in front of the cashier and small area for you to browse stuff (oils, chinese teas) to buy. we were brought through the door to the massage area where unbelievably is about the same concept as Zen Soul!!

the rooms are not rooms but small cubicle-like areas with curtains separating each massage area. and of course, again, the mattress is on the floor. oh no, i feel a cringe at my neck. but if i were to be objective - and put my need for creature comfort aside - this is actually an excellent economical model of facility layout - yes, this is the industrial engineer speaking - and operational model. emm...

anyways, the treatment. there are not that many choices of treatment, just a couple choices of massages and reflexology. if u're looking for scrubs, bath or mani pedi, definitely not here.. for us, i chose the aromatheraphy massage and sayang went for the thai traditional massage. the experience? oh dear god.. the good part of the good kind of hurt better be damn good tomorrow coz i'm still hurting now!! lolx! but to be seriouly frank, it does hurt, especially if ur shoulder knots are like ours, huge and extremely knotty! the masseurs will not hesitate to use her entire arm especially elbows to squish those knots into oblivion IRREGARDLESS of how much u squealed.. at least my treatment came with oil that i thot lessen the pain quite a bit. sayang's treatment is sans oil!! he told me he felt like he's being pinched and elbowed and squished and twisted!! HAHAHAH!!!

but after all that, we do feel a bit looser and achingly good - if ever there's such a description.

i would recommend this if u're really stressed or have sports knots - there's a special massage for golfers!!.. if u're like me, where massages are supposed to be pampering and relaxing with soothy songs and sweet smells, this is definitely not for you!

would i go again? i think so.. yes..

i'm so P.O.ed today..

hubby took me to out today to get curling iron in an effort to cheer me up - yes, otherwise i'll still be one smelly tikus.. i have one already but i loaned that one to nis and since at that time my hair was horribly, irritatingly damaged and at a ridiculous length that i couldnt do anything with it, i told her she could keep it. yes, it would serve her oh-so-gorgeous hair better than mine...

*sulk while swearing that i wouldnt subject my hair to anymore chemicals*

lately though, i'm itching to do something with my hair.. someone, once upon a time ago, suggested to me that maybe i change my hair a lot has something to do with a subconscious need to change something else but i couldnt and so that need transfered to changing my hair.

i told him to FUCK OFF.

if there are any subconscious needs that are still smoldering inside me that i have yet to fulfill, they do not translate to my hair.

i have one so very conscious hair problem since before i hit puberty: i hate my hair. and if u're my ex-primary schoolmate or my ex-boarding schoolmate, you would know. i have horrible hair, well, at least until i met rebonding. LOLX! yes, yes, gag y dont u..

so anyways, since my hair is bordering recovery already *another 4 inches of damaged ends to go*, i'm itching to do something to it. i made appt to do this one process called cosmy or smtg but i cancelled it last minute because yes, chemicals. i cant color it, i cant cut it even shorter. so i wanted to curl it and hubby offered to get a new curling iron for me.

so off we went this afternoon to get one. then we stopped by mcdonald's for its fries for snacks, to guardians for toilettries and back to the car to go home.

tikus: sayang, where's the plastic that has my curlers??

sayang: not with me..

tikus: oh shit! i left it at mcdonald's!!!

so the tikus ran back to mcdonald's and lo and behold the orange plastic bag that held her newly purchased VS ceramic curling iron is not there any longer.

BLARDYVOSTOK!!!

i asked the cleaners there and that farking amah was so rude, not helpful and dismissive *may u be hit by a bus*. i went to the counter, asked for the manager to make an incident report and also to leave my details so that if anyone found it they can contact me. this one cibai lady named faridah *may you be hit by a truck* who's the asst manager was so fucking rude gave me a scrap paper to write on and left me there and disappeared.

one, i was so upset my stuff is gone and most definitely stolen [baru beli k!!!], and second, i was so angry at how, not only unhelpful but RUDE these people are. it's like they are trained to be polite at one thing only "hi, having here or to go?", for other things, u can fuck off.

i was going to make a fuss or more aptly go to war but hubby, my oh-so-very-patient husband told me to just forget it and lets get another one.

huh?? HUH?? ala... dah lah aku rasa bersalah sebab hilangkan barang yang dia baru belikan tak sampai sejam pun, lepas tu dia nak belikan lagi satu???

alaaaaa.... nak marah orang pun dah tak de mood..

Saturday, January 23, 2010

the tikus is sleeping early tonite, mostly because her tummy is still pounding, though a bit numb-ly [if there's ever such a word - oh, do u know that "irregardless" is actually NOT a real word?? i just knew k!!], from my pill-popping episode this afternoon..

i actually planned to do A LOT of freaking things today including watch the legion tonite. but of course, i spent my time curling with blankie, licking peanut butter and jelly from a spoon - yes, gross, i know but HEY! P-M-S!!! - and "fight" people in FB.. that was actually soothing, except for the fact that i still dont have a freaking bangkok passport to play in bangkok!!!

dang..

ok, where was i? oh, yeah, sleeping early.

well, good nite peeps!!
the tikus is not feeling well today..

why?

its the time of the FARKING month, dats FARKING why. yes, pls dont pardon my french, i do intend to swear, A LOT in this post, today and for the next 7-9 days..

uurrrrgghh..

it's not just the pain that's frustrating, it's the FARKING irritating and sooo irritable mood, the strangest need to eat all the BLARDY chocolate in the whole wide world and of course, the OMGWTF mother of all zits on the face!!

i mean, COME ON!!
there are some things in life that you just have to face alone, without help from anyone, not your family, friends or even your dearest partner..

and sometimes, you just feel like screaming out loud and for the tikus, most likely, crawl into her blankie, close her eyes and postpone facing whatever she has to face just a little while longer..

well, she can hope..

oh no..

hubby has a new hobby lately.. well, actually, it's an old hobby revived. i bought him a mountain bike for his bday last dec since his old one was stolen back in zurich [yes, i know, theft in zurich? strange, right?]

anyways, this morning, he went for a bike ride with another friend on a trail at the local forest research institute compound. and me, of course me the CITYkoos stayed at home with all my creature comforts - and smelly blankie and nice aircond - than trying to venture anywhere near a forest. and then, when i woke up, i saw his sms..

"sayang! next time u have to come! ramai orang k.. nanti i go buy u ur bike"

errr...

right....

Fact 1: i have no idea how to ride a mountain bike. no, rpm classes at the gym do not count.

Fact 2: track in the forest??? oh god, save me..

The Blind Side

i watched this movie a couple of days back. it was probably the best sandra bullock movie that i've ever watched and the one that moved me the most.

at first i thot the story is too good to be true, like some kind of a feel good movie.

and then i found out that it's a true story.

it's just amazing.

14 sticks to Day 1

today, the carton on the shelve of my cabinet is empty. i have opened the last remaining box - and of course currently chimney-ing my way through this post..

why is this important?

coz i told myself when that particular carton is empty, i will not buy another, box or carton or stick.

and honestly, i'm terrified like hell. that feeling when u saw ur last box and kept thinking whether the sticks are enough to get u through until u hv the time to get another or two boxes or better yet, lets get the whole carton. yes, that feeling, multiply it by maybe a million..

and the questions in my head now - what will i do without my ciggies? how would i forego stress? how would i get pass my mental blocks?? - are killing me.

i dont know whether i can do this or not but i'm not one who'll quit without trying.. or in this case, who'll try to quit??

HAHA, buat kelakar la pulak..

Zen Soul

we went to Zen Soul this afternoon for a little massage.

Zen Soul is a small spa in sri hartamas, yes, that alien planet and thank god for GPS [HAHAHA!] it was introduced to us by one of our friends and we wanted to try it out since the price is not that bad. an hour massage is from 65-75 depending on the kind of massage that you choose.

the spa is on the 1st floor in a row of shophouses near karma. the setting is quite simple but unique. unigue because the massage rooms are not really rooms. imagine a wide floor space being divided by wall partitions to make "cubicle-like" massage rooms with heavy curtains instead of doors. and for the first time in my life, the massage err bed(?) is on the floor with actual mattress and pillow.kinda funny and uncomfortable a little bit coz your head will be turned either to the left or right to avoid being smothered by the pillow! but everything was done tastefully with laminated flooring and romantic lighting. the only thing bad about the configuration is that we could hear our neighbours quite clearly!

we chose the aromatheraphy massage which is actually a mixture of malay, balinese and swedish massage. as a whole, i would have to say that it was quite nice but a teeny bit painful! HAHAHA! i always go for aromatheraphy for my first time in any new spas to test the masseurs because it's always the most relaxing and soothing and NOT PAINFUL!! but apparently not here. i was quite disappointed with my masseur coz i think she's a bit lazy. even sayang thot so too coz we actually faced each other [ye lah, heads have to be turned to one side kan?] and he could see that my masseur macam buat cincai.. and no, i did not complain, yes, i did wonder why since i am the master complainer..

all in all, it was ok. on a scale of 10, i would probably give it a 6 mostly because the price is fabulous and it was quite easy to get to [despite being at an alien planet]. would i go there again? emmm.. ok, maybe. but just for the massage [definitely not the aromatheraphy] or the mani pedi and not for the lulur coz the shower is at the back of the receptionist, meaning that you will have to cross the sitting / waiting area to go shower. like, eeiik, no thank you.

15 days later..

i just noticed that i havent written anything this year in this blog.

not even "happy new year".. sigh..

last year i thot i would write everyday and i would have at least 365 posts for the year 2009. it was a couple of hundred short :) i blame it on the internet connection, the job and most of all, i blame it on the little addictive games in facebook. yes, i have to admit that. my lappie, for the past months, has become the instrument of "destruction" HAHAHA!

anyways,

this year, honestly, i have no new year resolution, well, it's kinda like 15 days too late to make any huh.. but looking back to last year, i would like to have some minor life improvements this year. i wont call it resolution coz then i'll just forget about it coz hey, there's always the next year's resolution, right? so calling it life improvements seem a bit more lasting and hopefully permanent.

to all my frens out there, happy new year, may God bless you and may you have the best days and years ahead of you.

and for some frens whom i just heard, or more correctly, read, whom are hvg trials in their lives, i pray for the best for you. be strong.
