The Rainbow Dance and All Things Lovely

When I was little, I used to have an imaginary friend named Margaret. Margaret and I had so much in common. We love to play hide and seek, scare away frogs, giggle at young boys passing by the house, and get excited when it rains. When we spot a rainbow after the rain, we would do the “rainbow dance”. We also called it the “Dance to a Pot of Gold” hoping that a pot of gold would just slide down the rainbow into our arms. Yea, blame the leprechauns for making us believe in it!

One day, I asked her why does she love the things I love and how come we have so much in common? Margaret claims that she knows what I like because she came from the future. I never believed it until I stumbled upon this letter she wrote me almost 20 years ago while cleaning up my drawers yesterday.

See what I mean??! How would she know about Sloggi products if she wasn’t from the future?? The letter just solved all the puzzles I had before. I know what you mean now, Margaret. I promise you I will take good care of our mother nature because you just pointed out all things lovely about the world!

If Sloggi can do it, I can do it too! *winks*

I remember clearly that dreadful morning on September 11, 2005. I woke up from a dream and had a bad feeling about it. Then when afternoon came, I got my first bad news. She was very sick and I was told to fly back home.

She passed away peaceful at 3am, September 12, 2005. Almost exactly one hour after my arrival at the hospital bedside. No doubt, she waited for me.

Honestly, I've never been to the graveyard to visit her. I know where she was buried, but I never had the guts to step inside. I've passed by the road several times, only to look away and cry within my heart. When people mention her, my heart sores. If she crosses my mind, I WILL CRY. Her influence on me is THAT strong. 5 years down the road, and I still can't cope with this feeling.

Happy Birthday Grandma. I wanted you to see me graduate, earn money, own a car, buying my own house, start a family and most importantly, to return your love for me, to take care of you, to stop people from hurting you.. but I guess God has other plans, huh... Well I hope God has prepared a gift for you because I can't send you anything but my prayers. I love you and I miss you the most at times like this.

Gatsby Deodorant Street Fair

For those who had missed all the fun (yes, you have), more than 500 bloggers participated in the Gatsby Deodorant Street Fair in Times Square, KL on Saturday, 17th of April to be part of the “Largest Gathering of Bloggers”. And since this is the first largest blogger gathering in Malaysia, we made it into the Malaysia Book of Records! Yeayy to all!

That’s not all coz we had FUN bebeh! There were just so many interesting games to play like shooting cans, snake & ladder, gladiator battle, rodeo, inflatable wall climbing, coconut bowling, dart throwing, and mini basketball. Ok, I may have made up all the names, BUT that is, among others, what we played!

We manage to play ALL the games and some played for several times! Haha. The boyfriend and I fought in the gladiator ‘battle field’. We both agreed that we should whack the hell out of each other and NO MERCY whatsoever. But I didn’t know I should not hit the face coz I was doing that most of the time. LOL. But I fell first anyway! Dang.

And what d’ya know, the organizers were just SO AWESOME AND GENEROUS, that for every game we played, we can collect points and redeem Gatsby products with the points accumulated!

Below are some, I repeat, SOME of the Gatsby products that we redeemed with the points. So damn generous of Gatsby wei!

There were lucky draw as well. But I wasn’t expecting anything *lie* coz I’ve never been LUCKY with lucky draws. LOL. But I had a great time, hanging out with my besties, met some bloggers and all.

A big round of applause to Nuffnang and Gatsby for making this happen and HAPPENING! LOL!

Picture credits to the boyfriend. Huh.

Colmar Tropicale, Berjaya Hill

I’ve been wanting to go there for quite some time because I heard so much about the place. So on Sunday (since we don’t know where else to go to spend time together), we decided to just go and see what’s so awesome up there.

But honestly, there isn’t really much to see except the VERY FEW French buildings, a rabbit farm, the botanical garden and the Japanese village. The food is very expensive but it did not come as a surprise. The only other thing that might interest you is paying RM25 ( i think) to be wrapped in kimono for 30 minutes. Or trying out the spa which costs a few hundred ringgit.

This is a quick update since I still haven't found the mood to blog seriously. So, I’ll just leave you with some MUST HAVE pictures from Colmar Tropicale. Trust me, you see this in every Colmar Tropicale photo album in your friend’s Facebook.

By the way, entrance fee is at RM 10 per person. Sheesh.

p.s. Puthaandu Nalvazhthukkal to all my Tamil, Sikh, Malayalee friends and family. May your dreams and wishes come true this year!

Be among the first to try iTalkWhoa!

Psstt. As I promised on Friday, I’m gonna tell you WHAT is iTalkWhoa and HOW you can stay connected with your friends abroad with minimal charges on calls and SMS. Plus, you can also send e-mails, SMS, check your friend’s Facebook and Twitter updates and even read your favorite news! You can do all that in just ONE portal without the hassle of logging into several websites.

Sounds interesting? You bet it is! Be among the first to explore this portal -->*

I was lucky to be the first few who found out about this portal and as one of the early birds; I received FREE RM 5 iTalk prepaid! Since there isn’t much hoo-haa on iTalk Whoa yet, I suggest you sign up NOW as I heard that the FREE prepaid will be given to the first 8000 users!

Some of the interesting features of iTalk Whoa and I would say useful to many of us are as below:

iTalk Whoa Mail
Once you sign up to iTalk Whoa, you will get your own e-mail address that ends with Cool! It also allows me to integrate my Yahoomail, Gmail or MSN into one webmail server, and I did configure one in my ‘Settings’. This application also has push capability so you can push your emails to your mobile phone!

Voice Call
This is also a web platform to use your iTalk prepaid and make calls! Local calls are charged at 10sen (fixed line) and 15sen (mobile) per minute.

Try calling the number on the screen if you dare.

You can make international calls to fixed and mobile line too. I know quite a number of Malaysian studying in Indonesia so this is pretty useful for mums and dads, boyfriends and girlfriends. Calls to Indonesia are charged at 26sen (fixed) and 33sen (mobile) per minute. Some international calls are dirt cheap! Call Singapore, Australia, USA and China at 5sen per minute! Oh man. Why didn’t this exist when I went to China last year?! I could have saved ALL MY MISERY of missing home and the boyfriend! T__T

Yep, you can send SMS to any phone (local mobile/international mobile/fixed sms). The charges are cheap too! AGAIN, WHY DIDN'T THIS EXIST WHEN I WENT TO CHINA LAST YEAR??!!!!

Just using this ONE portal, you can check your mail, make call to your loved one, send an SMS to a friend, and TWEET for the world to see!

Instant Messaging
Yep, you can log in to your Yahoo Messenger, GTalk, MSN, and many more via this portal. I’ve logged in to my YM and tried chatting with some friends. Got to improve on the interface though. It looks plain and dull. Huhu.

CikPin learns some vulgar words for her daily curse.

Above are just some of its features. Takkan you want me to spoon-feed everything kan? So hurry while you can still register and receive your FREE iTalk prepaid! Registration is free. You just need to verify your ID and you’re all set to try out this new portal!

Once you have tried the platform, send me your feedbacks as I might send some of my own feedbacks to the developers too. I am somewhat skeptical about the things it said it can do and I will send them up for a challenge or two! Cewahh!

Ok lah, let’s bombard the now!

Where is the freaking blogging mood??!!!

I was at Borneo Rainforest on Wednesday night. I was there to attend a compulsory event but lucky me two parties happened at the same venue, only at different times!

The first party was to celebrate the launch of TM’s new product, the iTalkWhoa. Guess what I got in the goodie bag? A brand new headphone with mic attached!

As usual, almost any TM event will see Bunkface coming on stage and perform a few songs. They were simply awesome! You could feel the energy and vibe that they have on stage. Not because I’m a fan, but these guys don’t come on stage unprepared. They ALWAYS look prepared. They know what to say, they know what event it is, they know who to greet, they were just awesome, okay?

Ailapiu bangpes!

After the iTalkWhoa party ended, we hung around until the FlyFM Champur Chart Goes Live took over the club. Performing on stage were Tilu, Law and Meet Uncle Hussein with their new vocalist Hazama; also featuring Black MENTOR. I really, really HATE to admit this but Black does sound good during the live performance. Oh man, how much I despise that poor guy before! LOL.

You might have notice by now that this entry title and the content do not relate at all. Oh well, the mood to blog has not come back and I can’t explain it! Don't bother the grammar. Was not even bothered to check. Some of you might even wonder what is this iTalkWhoa that I just ranted about. Will tell you soon. How soon is soon? Next Monday, okay?

Ape punya kemalasan ni?

Taktau apa punya kemalasan ni, aku malas betol nak update blog. Tapi kesian punya pasal kat lu orang yang asyik kuar masuk blog ni tanpa mendapat sebarang manfaat, aku update-kan juga lah apa-apa yang aku rasa menarik terjadi sepanjang ketiadaan entri.

Ada orang cakap kat aku dia tak suke karok. Bukan sekali, tapi berkali-kali dia cakap sampaikan ada sekali tu boleh buat gaduh. Tapi bila dah jumpa bilik karok, lupa diri terus. Cess.

Dari 10 orang dalam bilik karok, 9 orang merokok. 1 orang yang tak merokok tu adalah aku. Bila aku balik rumah, aku cuci rambut dua kali. Bangun pagi, cuci lagi sekali. Kalau paru-paru duduk luar badan, dah lama aku sental jugak.

Sabtu malam Ahad, pegi MARDI tengok drift. Aku suka tengok drift tapi aku tanak orang yang tersayang jadi drifter for one reason only: I do not want to and cannot lose you.

Falkor dah pasang tinted baru dan telah mendapat windscreen treatment utk mengeluarkan water marks dan windscreen coating utk membuang minyak serta melihat dengan lebih jelas semasa hujan. Sekarang windscreen sudah cantik, menarik, tertarik Falkor memang da bomb. Tapi aku tak puas ati betol dengan si Falkor nih sebab harga treatment utk windscreen dia lagi mahal dari harga treatment rambut aku selama ni! Melampau betol!

Minggu depan Falkor jumpa lagi mamat kat dalam gambar tu yer. Nak tambah layer hitam. Kali ni dapat free worr...!!

Wahh. Serius tak tau nak taip ape lagi. Chao dulu!
