❤ I almost forgot how much I love them. ❤

It has been a while since the last time I carefully take out my stickers collection from the same old corner in the cupboard, slowly flipping through them one by one admiring them, before placing them back carefully into the box and back to the cupboard. I am telling you, it was an obsessive-compulsive stickers disorder and the stickers was like a drug, giving me the push to do something every now and then. Thinking back those days makes me laugh, how silly and crazy I was (or I am?) Anyway, I'll still keep those stickers carefully and hopefully one day I'll pass them to my daughter(s) lol slap me please.

Oh I almost forgot, I had an obssession over kawaii stationeries too and Barbie doll and Hello Kitty, which Xinyun always used to laugh at me during the secondary school days. Calling me childish omg Barbie doll hahahhahaha how I used to spend all the money I get from drawing competitions to buy Barbie dolls! Oh well, another something for my daughter(s), my Barbie Doll collection :)

Secret to getting good results,
have a set of cute stationery to keep you motivated and entertained throughout classes of the day.
At least that's mine!

Alright, going off to Queensbay mall in a bit and off to the airport for Jia's arrival!!!!!!!!!!!
Me is gonna be happy long long hopefully singK sessions many many before Jia leaves for Singapore :)

I'm such a cliché!

Long emo post you don't wanna read.

Seriously, I'm such a cliché for being easily falling for cute guys I hate myself!
Seeing the Taiwanese group Fahrenheit upclose was an example of what a loser I am infront of cute guys. After that I was thinking to myself, do I really have to? All the wasted energy oh puhhhleeeez!

Enough of hallucinating the perfect guy to appear there's no Gu Jun Pyo nor Edward Cullen in this world, the reality is harsh and hard which always gives you twists and turns which slap disappointments after disappointments into your face!


I've actually decided to just "save as draft" for this post and let it disappear as time goes by with my many other drafts in my blogspot where all of the emo posts are written and not published for if I were to publish the post, that would amplify the negative energy in me and the law of attraction will attract more negative force which I don't want please thank you until I read Sweat Lee's recent blog post (thanks xinyun for sharing the link) about her having a dream too, which lead me to continue writing this post but I don't know how far this may go, it may end up being "save as draft".

I guess many of us are facing the same problem, being in the crossroad in life, jump into the rat race or go for the road not taken? No doubt being an architect assistant, working from 9am to OT-til-duno-what-time is part of the road to being an qualified architect, gaining experience before getting Masters degree and more years of experience before being able to take the PAM exams for the AR title. That's what everbody hopes for me, which they believe is the best, getting the AR title at the end of the road. Yes, having the title is oh so glamorous, being able to sign plans and approving projects and dealing with big big bucks but hey, those are the surface part of being an architect. Do they know that we actually have to go through tough processes, needing to tender and redo again and again which doesn't involve design anymore. People say architects design but then again, in the real world, no design are to be built unless your creativity are being appreciated by clients who are willing to churn out ka-chings for that.

Indeed I've chosen to take the road not taken but it seems like everything is not going at the right direction as expected. The desire of wanting to make the best out of something inside me which hasn't really got the opportunity to shine is slowly dying off. I'm beginning to lose faith in what I used to believe in, as long as there's the will, there's the way. I'm trying my very best but there don't seem to have any pleasing results. The desire of pursuing my dream and become Leona Lewis singing "A moment like this" was so great, I gave up the final opportunity to be in Japan before Jia leaves for good, and now seeing sakura flowers and fuji san in the newspapers makes me feel sad. I used to believe there are no dreams that are too large to be dreamt, and everyone should dare to dream, but it seems like reality is hitting me one by one, urging me to let go of everything that I used to believe. What happened to all the desire and enthusiasm?

Time is ticking and in no time, it'll be the month of April and looking back of what I've done throughout this 4 months, the only proud thing that I've done is having my FashionTECTURE launch, the thing that I spent effort and excitement on. And I used to believe that once effort is inserted, you'll see the result but it's sad to realize that all the enthusiasm is draining off by day.

There are 2 options right now laying in front of me, going all out for FashionTECTURE, or getting a job and work to live. Seriously, I know once I've chosen to take that path, my life will only evolve around work and everything I do is not about me but pleasing those above me. Yes you say I can climb the career ladder and be the head one day, what if that day finally arrives and I'm an all-mighty-professional but a person who has already lost her true inner self? Of course that's not a bad path at all, considering I'll end up being a professional rather than a nobody who might be caught up with wanting to pursue her dream but end up being a taylor in her own sweet little so-called-i-am-doing-my-dream-job-world

omg are you still reading coz I'm not sure what I'm actually writing but anyway,

in a total different perspective, everything can be upside down and I could be caught working 9am to OT-til-duno-what-time in the architecture firm trying to please my boss but if I choose to take the road not taken, I could be a business woman with my own fashion brand in hand, just like Zang Toi or Jimmy Choo.

There are just so much possibilities in life and tomorrow, I might have a heart attack or whatever accident and die, just like that.


Anyway, I'm already sick of not knowing what to do in life but not wanting to be in the rat race. I really want to achieve so much more than just being stuck behind PC screens with AutoCAD or SketchUp, but not wanting to do that and having so many big dreams is so energy draining it's slowly taking my toll. A woman who secretly dream large is very sad and lost at the moment. However, I'm still secretly hoping that everything and the life that I've ever wanted will actually be realized. And then there's part of me that actually believes that life is actually all planned out ahead of us and we are just to walk along the path until our dieing day. But that will be too sad coz I wouldn't be striving for the best and give excuses in whatever I don't get is meant to be. No no no I cannot let myself believe that I must keep thinking about Lady Gaga!!

Oh well enough theories, let's just see what tomorrow brings, and enjoy every moment we live.

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."

What a dream.

Dreamt of buying a white HERMES birkin last night and had to pay for the orange box are you kidding me. And in a separate dream in the same night, I had major hair loss and was literally balding where I still have a faint image in my head of me looking into the mirror with the littlest hair I could ever imagine T__T

What's happening?!!?

There are just too many things bugging me and omgness, somebody save me!

Anyway time for more packing AGAIN blah blah blah and more samples are dug out which I have no idea on which goes first. Enough of Korean and Japanese!!>_<"

Yer I wanna go Japan for Jia's graduation ceremony!! T__T but I guess there are bigger things to achieve than to go Japan for pink pink sakura para para sakura just imagine the pretty cherry blossoms!! *slap*

Okay til then, xoxo.

Wacom Lovin ♥

It may seem that I've got nothing much to do lately just lazing around but why am I always occupied?!! There are many many things to do in such a short time which I don't even understand why am I such a busy lady! Went to singK in Redbox this afternoon and my oh my, I almost forgot how I used to be part of the enthusiast bunch of secondary students! Time really flies how many times have I got to say to prove the point and with this double 2, I figured it's time to really do something in life before it's too late. I keep telling everybody I want get involved with investments, starting my own business, be a millionaire by the age of 25 and huhuhu all of them seem so unattainable, and you even have such courage to type them all out here lady. =___=" I guess it may be time to privatize this little space of mine so I can just spill out whatever I want to say whenever wherever we shall see, or nobody's actually reading this? :| oh whatever and current craze: WACOM LOVIN'! :D

I've always wanted to attempt portrait fashion sketching using wacom but I know fashion is not only about sketching but fabric management and assembling the pieces together to structure the creativity into reality. Can I go to New York and be the next Zang Toi please, see another dream which deserves a tight slap huhuhuhu.

Aights enough crap and here are some pix taken when I was in KL.Met up with the baboosh twins plus one, which I am yet to adapt both of them are very cute and loving please :)

Us with the tea set for 2:

Jessmine plus one.

Jesslyn baboosh.

Somebody please explain how on earth can 2 person gluttonise this amount of food?

Next day was going over for my job interview which turned out to be near where rar-rar-rar-mah-mah-Hayden Loo is working at and of course we met up and hello hello telephone non-stop! :D

Only half of Hayden I know left!


And then another sms from JiannLih and poof, off I went to Pavilion right after interview and lucky me, I was the lucky number one to be taken with his new f1.8 4mm (I think that's how they call it) portrait lense.

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, well for me,

a pretty picture a day gets LiYinism blown away. lame.


I want GUCCI.

I want PRADA.

Ultimately, I want HERMES BIRKIN.

And please pronounce HERMES correctly yes it's a silent "H" with

エ(e)ル(ru)メ(me)ス(su) in katakana, get the drill?

Hoping for the very best in life.

♥ Give me a Chow Chow please ♥

I want a Chow Chow!!!
(pardon my amazingly squeeky irritating voice please.)

Yes I'm finally updating my blog!!
as you know the crazy going over to KL for an interview all of a sudden and starting working on Thursday and rushing back on Saturday hoping to make it to Li Yang's JSPO concert but freakin oh so great Malaysia road system and Malaysian time, bus came an hour late and broke down huhuhu siao or not which wasted another hour, resulting me reaching in Penang at 10.40pm FML max sorry Yang boy T__T.

Now I'm in my beloved home sweet home at the same old spot after a little shopping in Queensbay Mall for a COD delivery for FashionTECTURE and well oh well, I managed to make a new friend Meigi who's studying architecture in USM!!! What a small world or I should say, great mind thinks alike, and has great taste! lol..

And yes, me being a Gisele Bundchen Ipanema freak,

Calories Overdose Day Out, me ♥ TAO + Penang Hawker ♥

Since our dear Xinyun managed to pass all her subjects which apparently is a big success for her, time for TAO outing at Autocity omg I almost forgot how much I love eating all the unagi I can!! Having said that, there's one thing that I've been wanting to find out!!

I remembered seeing Tao道 at Red carpets and events while watching E! Channel, is it the same company all the way from the United States opening a branch in our small city Penang?

TAO, New York VS. TAO, Penang.

Hmmm I guess they ain't the same afterall, maybe a sub just like MIU MIU being the sub of PRADA? No MIU MIU is not a Japanese/ Asian brand but is by PRADA, by the name of Miuccia Prada now you know :)

It's surprising to not find TAO anywhere else in Malaysia other than Penang, not even Kuala Lumpur, I guess that's something we Penang lang should be proud of, being able to be pampered with streams of yummy, fresh, and well-displayed dishes with only the price of RM38++!!
Okay RM45++ with Sashimi but please, RM55 the most for a heartful satisfying meal it's only AUD 15 after converting, which always makes us happy as though we are actually earning AUD =-="

Okay enough talking and some pictures.

Looking back at my old blog posts reminds me of how much I loved blogging, pain-stakingly edit every picture and water mark them as though people out there would actually care to steal my photos and post the pix one by one and describing every move I made *gasp*

Wow I really admire my-previous-love-blogging-self.

To be honest, I don't remember taking most of the photos and Joe, Herng, Xinyun if you are reading this!! Spot the photo 4 of us took in the pool in N park (Evidence 2)!!!

Any idea where is the file now???? :D

Anyway, here are pictures taken yesterday definitely calories overdose for the day, read on and you'll know how many freakin stops we actually made on food!!! me love :)

To start off the day with 10 orders.

At the salad bar while waiting for our orders.

Cheese Battered Salmon.


Unagi and Salmon Volcano with crispy inner layer,
which adds scrumptious substance for munching ♥

Definitely a MUST-TRY!

Credits to JiaWen, our many many cawamushi!! :)

Tuna sashimi.

The carefully battered tuna piece that's hiding within.

Unagi Tofu very very healthy dish~

Ebiko, dear xinyun it's not my favourite but my bro Tatt's.
Mine is ♥ UNAGI ♥

Now the MUSSELS is added into my must-take-list-in-TAO.
Yeap it's the same sauce as the previous ones they served with the scallop.

Xinyun's favourite scallop with their new sauce, not the usual spicy one but still very cheesy yummmmmms~

Loving the mussels!!

very thin fish with sweet soy sauce, recommended for order although you are already half way there coz it's just a very small portion.

Look how thin it may look crispy and hard but fret not, the fish meat is still very tender and succulent with outer thin crispy layer.

Unagi + Rice which xinyun insist in getting although we were already full ka pua si.

Poor tiny crabs and shrimps.

Crabstick mania.
Very succulent and rich in taste :|

My all-time-favourite-Butter-Fish.

At this point we were already sipek full.

Time for photo-shooting session while waiting for the food to digest.

And then after the Coffee-Vanilla-ice-cream, we gladly declared all those as a meal ♥

Lazing at Jia Wen beautifully decorated interior designed by Jia Wen herself.

After shopping at Perangin Mall with lots of online garments spotted, off we headed to New Lane, Penang (below Sunway Hotel) for my FAVOURITE Penang Hawker Food!!!

Great location to get whatever food you want from Penang, you name it, they've got it.

Curry Mee.

Jiu Hu Eng Cai i鱿鱼.
Jia Wen with red red lips after eating the 辣椒不用本Curry Mee.

Xinyun decided to stop for the famous Belacan 鸡 Chicken when we passed by Taman Sri Rambai and I'm lovin the chicken gizzard :)

So now you tell me, was our day overdosed by calories or what! Okay have to stop here for the time being and off to the dentist I hate going to the dentist they say certain people have different experience as their childhood phobia and I guess going to the dentist is mine T_____T
