And these are just a fraction of the pics, loads more at Seriously, why would people even come up with these stuff? Everything is mostly heavily deep-fried, loaded with appalling amounts of processed carbs, sugar, fat and sodium. Not to mention the portion sizes are ludicrously huge. Caloric content would be through the roof and each would probably contain enough calories to kill a baby elephant. And most of them don't even look edible to me. In fact, most, if not all of them look REALLY disgusting. Looking these absurd 'franken foods', I can't help but think that they are inspired by mindless, irresponsible gluttony.

No wonder the world is eating itself to death...

Yes, Chikus is the term my good friends used to describe the type of guys I 'supposedly' like or am drawn to, which is the CYTs (Cute Young Things). I don't necessary wanna adhere to that coz I wanna keep my options open mah. Let's see from the trend this year... first started with Bobo (19) late last year, then there was L (21), Terry (21), ES (20) and YZ (20). Oh shit, it COULD a bit true. But, if life hands me those, then I gotta try to accept right? =P

In my defense, my 1st ex was 3 years older than me, k? And now that I'm 29 d, it's harder to find guys older than me, k? So must find younger than me lo. I've been hoping to find someone around my age, but life wants me to have the CYTs, not my fault mah =P

Sooo, if you hear me dating someone below 23 25, don't judge me XD

Sooo, I shall further indulge search. I might start playing the field a bit, feeling a tad lonely nowadays. Maybe coz end of the year approaching? Or my T hormones are acting up again?

Tired, Tired

Ugh, I need a life. Lately I feel as if I'm so lazy to do anything sometimes, even go out. I've been analyzing what's been going on and it's my erratic late nights that are really screwing me up. I've been so tired sometimes, that even the thought of doing something feels tiring. My colleague have commented that my eye bags are getting darker and bigger. Zits are multiplying again. I feel de-motivated and emo more often.

First of all, I seriously need to spend time some time OFF my PC. I wasn't this obsessed since I started WOW'ing. The gamer in me is kinda messing up my life. Gotta get more shut eye coz lack of sleep is messing up everything, from my thoughts to my emotions and my life. I'm spending less time doing things I oughta do and more time gluing my eyes to the screen killing monsters, people and completing quests. Gotta remind myself there's a life out there too, and the brain needs to shut down more often. I'll always have a love for gaming, reminds me of the good ol' days. Bad thing is, I go VERY overboard, putting everything aside to satisfy the gamer's lust. Like everything else I preach, I need to do it in moderation. More importantly, allow myself to rest more.

Secondly, I'm working out a little too hard lately. My body feels like breaking down sometimes. Instead of feeling better, I feel like crap sometimes, which is bad coz it might be indicative of onset over-training, however mild it might be. Need to rest more and de-load on my weight-training. Striving to make better progress is one thing, but breaking down your body too often while it can't recover won't get me nowhere neither. I need to remind myself that more is NOT always better and start listening to my body more often. I used to be alright, but I think I've crossed the fine line between dedicated and obsession, which is unhealthy. I need to remind myself that too much can cause me to move 2 step backwards, instead of 1 step forward.

This is all really self-inflicted stress, as if what I get from work and daily life isn't enough already. I'm getting really fed-up and frustrated of being perpetually tired, from lack of sleep and added stress from working out too much, which are both physically and psychologically unhealthy for someone as young as I am. Sleeping late has always been a weakness of mine. I've always adored the night and not a morning person, but that has to change. I need to go on a 'wake' diet and tone down my workouts. Hopefully I'll be able to bounce back in a week or 2...

Where Are You?

Where are you? Why haven't you come? Why haven't you appeared at my doorsteps? What's taking you so long? Did you have trouble finding me? I tried to look for you but in vain. They say that there is always someone for everyone. I'm beginning to think that they're liars.

I can't see you. I can't hear you, nor feel you. The road is dark, there is no light. It is cold and lonely. Sometimes it feels so bitter and empty. At times it feels so hard, so overwhelmingly tough. At times I feel like I'm adrift in the vast ocean, under the silhouette of the moonlight. Alone without a compass, without a breeze to carry me anywhere.

I need you. You have no idea how much I need you. Sometimes it feels like I can't carry on. Sometimes it feels like my heart is caving in. Sometimes it hurts so much. I yearn to feel your warmth against me. I yearn to listen to your beating heart. I yearn to feel the gentle caress of your breath. I yearn to hold you in my arms so tightly, at the risk of suffocating you.

Don't you see how much I need to love you? Can't you feel how much love I have to give? I don't wanna go on alone. Please come into my life. Everyone is telling me to wait. As patiently as I'm trying, at times I'm silently falling apart. Only hope is gluing me back together, to wake up one day and find you beside me. But that hope is starting to dwindle.

Everywhere I go, almost everyone I know, already has that special someone. When will it be our turn? Leave your footsteps in the sand, leave your lingering scent in the air, mark the trails of your life, to help me find you. When will our paths cross? When will our vines entwine? Will we ever find each other? Only time will tell, but here I am to announce. That I'm ready and waiting.

Where are you?

PS: Just feeling emo tonight...

Going GaGa Over Bad Romance

OMG, you have to check out Lady GaGa's MTV of her song Bad Romance!~

Seriously, this is one of her sickest MTVs ever! I love her so much. She's so different, isn't afraid to express herself in her work, fabulously and fashionably weird and she makes it WORK. Who handles her fantastically eccentric outfits? They are just so out of this world. And you gotta wonder what goes on in her head! I can't seem to shake this song outta my head. It's gonna be an awesome clubbing song too XD

Being Too Hard On Myself?

I've been looking back on my life. I'm already 29, and what have I really accomplished? The truth is, sadly, not much. In fact, I haven't managed significantly improve the quality of my life to the level that I wanted. Ever since I moved next door with dad so that I can have my own room, I haven't been able to save. I've had more responsibilities like bills and insurance to pay for, on top my study loan, monthly allowance for my dad, repairs for my car and other unpredictable misfortunes that pop up. My job doesn't pay well for the experience that I have. I don't feel appreciated as an engineer and the pay doesn't justify the workload.

I haven't managed to save to buy a better car, own a better PC, buy better things for myself or finance my own place. Shit, I barely did any shopping this year, coz I was afraid of spending. You might say that I'm currently evaluating the quality of my life based on my financial means. I'm very dissatisfied, even borderline in despair that financially, I'm still not where I want to be, and I'm still struggling. At this point, I should already have the financial stability, not keep worrying about money. I really need a new job and a better life. And it's NOT just for me, it's for my mum and sis as well. I don't ever want mum to work so hard in her older years, which is rapidly approaching. I REALLY NEED that job in SG or AUS. However, most engineering jobs in AUS involve civil, mechanical, structural or electrical engineering that focus on construction, railways or even water facility managements. And those aren't my major or what I currently do at all. So, SG would be a better target at this point, since they have jobs more relevant to what I'm doing. I COULD consider an internal transfer to SG, on top of other companies I'm currently applying to in SG as well.

My love life is a bomb, and nothing to talk about right now. Still alone and single. Being single has it's perks, coz you have all the time in the world to do whatever you want. But ever since YZ, I feel even more lonely. I really do miss him, but it wasn't meant to be. Once again I'm in the market, but not sure if I'm still wanted T.T

I don't look better than before. In fact, lately I look worse since I haven't been getting enough sleep. Sometimes I'm just thinking too much that falling asleep is becoming difficult. I know I might be too hard on myself, but I abhor being stagnant and not moving forward. If I'm moving backwards, it frustrates me to no end.

I remember when I started my job as an engineer, being a professional and in charge of my own financial means. I was saving quite a lot too, especially in my first year in the job. I had also just returned to Penang permanently and being active as a PLU, making a lot of new friends and really socializing to make up for what I missed in my younger days. I really felt that I was making something of my life and going in the direction I wanted to be.

Now, I just feel like a failure. What have I accomplished so far? NOTHING! No savings, still looking like crap and no BF. What a way to end the year.

I'm not meant to be a still lake, but a river that keeps flowing forward, not backwards. Am I being too hard on myself?

Awesome Movies in Nov!

Lately, I'm either caught up in work or just plain tired or lazy to step foot out of the house. I haven't been clubbing for more than 2 months. I haven't met anyone new for quite some time. Only activity the past week was lunch with some friends and 2 movies, both of which are Thai.

Last Friday, a couple of friends and I watched the new Thai martial arts movie, starring Jija Yanin, whom you might remember from her as an autistic girl turned kick ass martial artist in Chocolate, which was pretty fucking awesome!

Her latest movie now is Raging Phoenix:

What's not enjoyable? The choreography was mind-blowing and there's plenty of action. However, the story was kinda corny with dungeons and rooms that were setup in a rather mystical or medieval sense, plus long bridges under the city traversing a seemingly bottomless pit (where a really good fight took place). Acting was just alright, although I felt there was a small bit of over-acting. Having said that, this movie would still kinda blow your socks away. Action was practically NON-STOP towards the 2nd half of the movie, where chair-gripping violence coupled amazing choreography was abundant. I only have 2 quibbles with the fights; some of the characters felt like they were indestructible and could take TOO MUCH violent pummeling than humanly possible before either collapsing or dying AND Jija seems a little too petite in size to be dealing enough damage to fall her opponents obviously much bigger and stronger than her physically.

Sunday was lunch at Sakae with Isaac and ES followed by a belated movie treat by ES for the both of us. Oh, we watched Phobia 2, which was quite scary.

Seriously, you shouldn't eat a full meal before watching a movie that makes your heart jump repeatedly. My lunch almost jumped out along with it. Having said that, it was a GOOD watch. It's just basically 5 scary story stories all rolled into a single movie. Good thing about that concept is that each story won't drag on for ages before it hits a climax. Plenty of good, creepy scares and some gore too. Although, the last one (which I think is the best) should be regarded more as mix of horror and humor, but focuses more on the latter. I should also mention that in each story, there IS a cute guy to focus. So cute I just wanna...ok, let's move on =P

Two more movies in my MUST WATCH list this month are Ninja Assassin and 2012.

Seriously, I've been craving for these two movies ever since I saw the trailers, like a dog anxiously waiting for its master to throw the damn ball! 2012 looks really promising and it's directed by the same director for Independence Day, which is one of my ALL TIME fave mass destruction movies XD

I can't wait for Ninja Assassin coz there's Rain (Bi) starring in it *screams like a schoolgirl* and the choreography in the movie should be awesome too. Check out Rain's practice and training!

Ah, Rain...sigh =P

Early Birthday Weekend

Last Friday, Isaac.R and JL came down from KL just to celebrate Isaac.Y's belated birthday and my early one. I thought it was really sweet of them and I really appreciated it. Thanks for coming guys! =)

Saturday started off by Isaac.R and I taking JL to several places he had never been to the first time he came to Penang last month. Isaac.R actually took JL to Kek Lok Si in the morning, but I met up with them at Tesco at noon and together we proceeded to the Snake Temple at Bayan Lepas.

Isaac.R pointed out that the guy in grey walking beside him was kinda cute. He's Malay but looked kinda mixed and yeah, he's cute =X

Oh my, there he is again. 'Accidentally' took another photo of him, but he's quite cute leh. Should've taken a close-up one =P

Once inside, JL was kinda squeamish about the snakes and wouldn't try to touch 'em, which was kinda funny since he was the one who suggested to visit that place.

After that, we proceeded to a beach called Sungai Batu (I think) that is ONLY accessible through some remote kampung area with REALLY narrow and bumpy roads. It was so bumpy, luckily none of us ate yet. If not, we'd be redecorating the inside of his car, if you know what I mean. If someone in the car was pregnant,
heshe would've had a pre-mature delivery, or terus 'gugur' leh. And we got slightly lost along the way (it's not like that kampung place had signs). Eventually, we found the place, which turned out quite nice.

Wonder what caught their attention...?

Isaac.R and JL (standing)

JL and I =)

After that, we proceeded for a looo00oo000ooo000oong ride to Balik Pulau. Kinda reminded me why I never go to Balik Pulau. Plenty of narrow, winding roads along the long journey. On top of that, the car was almost empty on fuel the whole way, adding to the suspense lah. So, JL got bored, took my camera and started taking random pics and camwhoring.

Isn't JL cute? =P

Why to Balik Pulau? For the laksa of course (durian season is over, cannot get good ones d T.T)! Why else would someone travel miles and miles if it were not for makan, especially Penang makan? =P

Asam laksa...JL and Isaac.R had this.

Laksa Siam or Lemak. I was the only one having it but after they both tasted, they ordered it also. It was quite good XD

You can only get this in Balik Pulau now I think. They don't sell this anywhere else on the island. If got, please lemme know k?

After that, we headed back to Tesco coz we needed to do some additional shopping for the BBQ that night. Fast forward, the BBQ on Saturday was just a medium one with less than 15 people. Nevertheless, it was good times with good friends =)

These were taken quite early when not many people had arrived yet and it had just started. Too busy eating and talking to snap the rest later =P

Oh, and remember I said that Brendan was baking me a cake? It's a marble cheesecake with luscious dark chocolate coating and thinly sliced kiwi fruit. It was absolutely DELISH!

Introducing Brendan, my fave foodie and baker XD

ACTUALLY, we had 2 cakes that night and the cake above was the second one. The first was a creamy crepe cake that Isaac.Y had ordered and it was really good too. We demolished it before I remembered to snap a pic =P


I got a lucky cat, an aromatherapy set for my room, a MP3 wireless FM modulator for my car (how practical), a cute angel pair and A FRIGGIN' ELECTRIC OVEN (which also came with a Winnie the Pooh envelope and card that you see on top XD). Apparently, someone IS listening to me when I yap about not having an oven and wanting to learn how to bake XD

So, my friends pooled some cash and got it for me. I think it's really sweet. Good lord, I was so excited, I think...I THINK I jumped up and down like a kid *embarrassed* OK, MOVE ON!

Ah...lastly, Isaac.R got me this locket which means prosperity while we were at Balik Pulau from this uncle, who is apparently a living heritage and has made a living his entire life out of carving and molding silverware and accessories.

Guys, thanks SO MUCH for everything. Thanks for spending the time, making the effort and the meaningful gifts. Love y'all loads ^^
