I had SO MUCH FUN DANCING last Sat!
We almost didn’t go cos we were feeling full from dinner and lazy…
but i couldn’t bear the thought of missing out on everyone having fun at THIS ONE
and once we caught a cab there (cos we were gonna DRINKKKK) i was all skippedy hop
I had one of those quite-terrible days where lots of things were going wrong… but i’m okay now!
I knew i’d be okay by dinner time, and just had to LET OUT all the ANGER and FRUSTRATION i had in me earlier.
At one point i felt like throwing a glass at the wall JUST to see it shatter and feel its reverberations as if that might somehow make me feel better.
Oh, and scream. I wanted to scream for a bit too.
I don’t think it’s a bad thing that i wanted to feel that… violent, for awhile there.
I NEEDED to FEEL it so i can expunge those emotions and get on with my life and deal with it.
The thing that got me MOST today was finding out from my family mechanic that my gearbox decided to conk and he quoted me RM5-6K to fix it. I was like, ”WHATTTTT”
I knew there was something wrong with the acceleration since early May, and even kept on pointing it out to Clem who insisted he couldn’t hear it. Only i know you best baby… *strokes car lovingly* So i thought well, if something was gonna happen to the gearbox, let’s just anticipate it to cost around RM3K… 2K if i’m lucky. RM1.5K if i’m luckier.
But it’s fine. I can’t be lucky all the time.
At first i couldn’t help thinking of all the things 5-6K is equivalent to.
It’s almost 2 months mortgage!
It’s a plane ticket to South America!
And mostly, cos i’ve just pumped half my savings into a small business and this just made me feel extra poor.
For something i can’t even see!
Serve me right for buying this car -_-
It’s okay it’s okay! I’m FINE! Just venting.
I’m putting it down to Universe Taxes again. You know, how the Universe gives you so much sometimes but then taxes you when you least expect it. I’m counting my blessings that at least i can pay for it and that… i’m not gonna die.
So after the mechanic took my baby away to heal, i took a taxi.
The thing about driving myself around all the time is that i rarely communicate with other people to travel, and it’s always interesting when i have to. My conversation with taxi driver today (all in Malay but i’ll just write it in English) >
“Are you studying?” he asked
“No, i’m working!”
“You look like you’re in college.”
“Wah! Look so young!”
“Are you married?”
“No, but i have a boyfriend.”
“How many? Three?”
“Are you sure not three?”
“No!… JUST ONE.”
“With a young face like yours, you should have three. If not, two.”
“Yes. Boyfriends are like cars. If one tyre pancit or the car spoils, at least you have another car to drive.”
Oh man, i laughed so hard.
Where did this uncle learn things like this?!
He kept on insisting everyone has 2 or 3 partners, and pointed at a BMW driving by and said, “I bet this fellow has 3 girlfriends. For sure! For sure!”
And i was like, “Nooo laaaaa, nooooo”
I asked him whether he was married and he said no, it’s hard to find someone especially if you’re a taxi driver.
I felt kinda sorry for him when i heard that.
I hope Mr Taxi Driver finds love! (Tho his views on partnerships are a bit dodge hrmm)
Ah i digressed. I wanted to talk about all the bad things that happened to me today, but i ended up hoping the taxi driver finds love -_- See, i AM feeling better!
After all the other crap that happened today (water got cut, blog server went down, allergic reaction popped up on my leg), things can ONLY GET BETTER after this. At least the Universe chucked it all into one day so i don’t waste time! Too much to do!
Have a great week everyoneeeee. I’ll leave you with Yuna’s latest music vid called “I Wanna Go”, shot by Didi and Julian.

Sergio Rossi just launched their new concept store last night and it’s so beautiful, you have to pop in to have a look when you’re next in Starhill. Celebrating womanly beauty and power, the store’s furnishings are inspired by the high heeled shoe’s curvaceous silhouette.
I love this simple yet electrifying wall of shoes
Ping, me, Aizat and Jacky.
My hairstyle has been refreshed by The Met; and my make up by May at Shu Uemura Pavilion.
The staircase between the “The Front Stage” and “Back Stage” has double-storey floor-to-ceiling mirrors – really gorgeous. Perfect for camwhoring :p

Prolific German DJs Cosmic Gate have released 4 albums, 28 singles, 46 remixes, and played at 1000+ international gigs with clubbers in their millions. More than twice placed among the Top 100 DJs by DJ Magazine, the duo’s trance sound is subtle, yet energetic, and absorbs the soul entirely.
Discovered when her music videos went wildly viral, Australian hip-hop artist Amethyst Amelia Kelly started rapping at 14. With Iggy Azalea as her stage name, she became the first female and non-American rapper featured on XXL’s annual Top 10 Freshman cover issue.
Israel-bred, LA-based electronic legend Infected Mushroom’s rampant experimentation infused styles from heavy metal to classical music into its sound. The group pioneered the “psychedelic trance” genre and was twice ranked among the world’s “10 Best DJs” by the UK’s DJ Magazine.
A big name in British electronica in the 1990s, Orbital’s pulsing rhythms and live improvisations were a critical success. The English brothers contributed to the soundtracks for films “The Saint”, “The Beach” and “Mortal Kombat”, with the latter reaching platinum status in 1995.
With their 2010 single “Club Love” receiving popular air play at clubs and music stations and the their song “Like a G6” hitting #1 on the Billboard charts, American band The Cataracs’ hip-hop indie-pop sound is instantly recognizable.
Rapper Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu revived the British pop landscape with new sounds born of mixing dance, house, hip-hop and other genres with sharp lyrics. His debut single, “Pass Out”, struck number one and he won a Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act in February 2011.
Malaysian star Yuna’s “laid-back, positive, lush pop” is charmingly poignant. “Deeper Conversation”, from her first EP, achieved massive success and was lauded Best Local English Song at the 2009 AIM Awards. In 2010, she played at MTV Iggy’s Best New Band in the World concert in New York City to a full audience.

I was out with Clouds and Kubz one night as we left The Bee to walk to our cars.
Despite it being quite late at night, I suddenly remembered that there was SOMETHING fun i could do that would make the walk to my car a little extra ordinary.
I switched on this app on my phone and started skipping.
Kubs even managed to get a shot of me.
Because i already started the timer on the app, i didn’t wanna stop skipping so i’d bounce and bop up and down while exchanging our last few pleasantries before heading off to our respective cars. Luckily there weren’t many people around Publika, cos i was skipping quite properly all the way to the carpark.
I even skipped down the steps of the motionless escalator, causing an unexpectedly loud “thump! thump! thump!” which scared a few girls who were camwhoring at the bottom of it.
They ran away squealing thinking it was someone chasing them… and i heard one of them say, “I thought it was a guy!”
I called out chirpily, “No it’s not! It’s just a girl!” while skipping around to the next escalator to go down.
I bounced down the steps thinking, “This must be what Tigger feels like.”
When i got into my car and locked the doors, i checked the app on my phone to see how well i did.
I skipped for 2 and a half minutes! Which was not bad… i thought.
As for the distance, i skipped for 0.06 km? Darn, it sounds much less when put that way… skipping is like half-flying, it’s active work!
Still, skipping 0.06 km was better than nothing, cos every tiny measurement counts!
Sikit-sikit, lama-lama jadi bukit!
The app i am using is called Rexona MOVE, designed to measure every little activity women do so that all the kilometres we complete are converted into donations for underprivileged children!
Our collective efforts have to measure up to a total of 10,695 km in order for Rexona to keep to their promise to fund the social cause!
It’s a cool way to be more conscious about how active we are,
while contributing to the community in a different yet healthy way!
Just look for Rexona MOVE on your Appstore/GooglePlay,
and register with your FB account, so no forms to fill in.
The app also uses my phone’s built-in GPS to track my distance as i move from one point to another.
Even if you’re not a sporty type (like uhhhh me) you can select activities like shopping and dancing to pitch in!
If i used this app while i was traveling, i’m sure i could pitch in around 50 km from walking and shopping alone :p
To spur us on further,
we can unlock badges,
and win prizes i.e. 30 iPad minis!
So many reasons to move!
You get active, while pushing a brand to help underprivileged children in every state in Malaysia,
and at the same time you could win a prize including one of 30 iPad minis?!
Check out their website rexonamove.com.myto find out more about the campaign.
Malaysians have really come together to make this happen,
by moving to reach Sarawak in just 3 weeks after the launch!
That doesn’t mean you stop moving! The more you move, the more children you will help.
Even Sazzy Falak and Nash Idrus is in on the campaign! >>
To get started yourself, search for ‘Rexona MOVE’ on your Appstore/GooglePlay!
If you don’t have a smartphone, you can still get in on the fun by playing the online game at www.rexonamove.com.my/game
Uni students can also watch out for some activities and prizes to be won on these dates! >
