who knew that watching ombak rindu on youtube could be so much FUN even when you have so many things to do & errands to run..
I was so pissed off with dude S that I thought that I need to blow off some steam by taking some nap. people who are close to me know that I hardly take afternoon naps.. to me, resting is visiting malls, watching dramas & reading.. when I noticed that ombak rindu is already on youtube (which means it's the DVD is already out.. hehe..), I thought that I'd watch for a few minutes and would soon doze off since I know the whole story (as I've watched it twice at the cinema).
but NOOOOOOO!!!! i had to watch the whole thing and this time, i can really focus on the romantic scenes as there aren't any kids running around, screaming or crying in front of me..
I didn't really like the song THAT MUCH watching it the first two times but now that I've focused on the scenes & really 'listen' to the lyrics of the songs.. they are very inspiring & beautiful.. ehehe..
my favourite song would definitely be 'ombak rindu' but i personally feel that if the guy were to sing it alone, it'd sound nicer.. not a big fan of the girl's voice.. mmm..
'Tuhan lembutkan hati dia
Untuk terima ku seadanya
Kerna ku tak sanggup
Kerna ku tak mampu
Hidup tanpa dia di sisi ku'
oh my god! my favourite scene will always be.. hehe.. minute 20 something2 where Izzah tried to give some kuih to Hariz but he's already asleep.. ala.. that scene!! haha..
okay.. why am I writing this entry when this movie is so few weeks back.. LOL..
If the characters from my school were characters from gossip girl, there would be a character that's a mix of JENNY HUMPHREY + VANESSA + JULIET.. not as conniving as irritating as the combination of the three characters.. and the character is a HE!!!
S.. U!!! now instead of saying FU I'd just say SU cause S is just oh-so-annoying!
I have just finished watching some episodes of Hart of Dixie. A new show for CW. I'd say the show is worth to watch as it's different from other shows who only focus on lives in New York / California. Life's different in Bluebell, Arizona. This show has a mix of drama & medical.
I cannot believe that my favourite character in this show isn't dr Zoe (rachel bilson BTW, she's too skinny in this show!). my favourite character is Lemon Breeland (Jaime King). Her character can be so ANNOYING but I don't despise her. She is so pretty and a natural actress. I like how confident she is even when her arguments are not that strong. I guess that is due to her abandonment issues. She can be manipulative at times. And I like how vulnerable she is especially around Lavon even when she appears to be in control of everything (you have to watch the show to understand better).
In the spirit of knowing more about Asian culture, I'm determine to visit Angkor Wat (btw, I just knew the existence of this place yesterday). It must be amazing as it is one of the seven wonders in the world! Am I the only person who is this ignorant?
Me: I want to visit Angkor Wat.
Him: Angkor Wat? More like Wat the f**k?
Me: It's one of the seven wonders in the world!
There is more to life than getting psyched over JPO. :b any of u been there?
I was in Cambodia for only 2 days. I don't think I could stay there any longer. The weather there somehow reminds me of Auckland during summer and the things are cheap but the transportation system is bad bad bad.
I'd kill myself if I have to ride the tuk tuk again. People there drive like orang gila getting into people's lane suka2. And even when you're in the wrong it's still acceptable to honk at others! And they'd constantly honk! The worst was the six-hour bus ride to HCM! I can't sleep as the driver honks every minute without fail and they decide to honk even when there are no cars around! I feel so proud that Malaysian drivers are more courteous! And as much as I am an impatient driver, I promise to refrain myself from honking!
I have just finished watching some episode of this show ringer. I've been meaning to watch this show for a while now as I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sarah Michelle Gellar in Buffy the Vampire Slayers. However, I didn't watch that many episodes from that series as it used to clash with my 'study time'.
Anyways, in this series, Sarah (we're on first name basis btw =b) stars as twins: Bridget, a former addict and stripper, and Shiobhan a New York society wife. The twins met up after six years and after spending the night together, Shiobhan disappears. Bridget decides to disguise as her twin sister as she is having problems as herself but she realizes that Shiobhan's life isn't all that pretty after all.
This is definitely a different tv show but somehow similar to revenge. I'm easily pleased but I'd give slightly higher marks for the show revenge. hehe.
It's been awhile since I've written a post on tv shows. I've just finished watching the first 8 episodes of the show revenge.
This show is mainly about revenge. Amanda Clarke (Emily VanCamp from brother& sisters who is so beautiful) disguises as Emily Thorne and moved to the Hamptons to destroy those who have destroyed her father.
Do watch it!!
Oh btw, I'm having a two-days Kursus kahwin & thanks to the newly FREE blogger app, I might be posting a few more entries. Hehe.
I put my make up almost everywhere. sometimes, i'd find my lipsticks in my bags, than my powder in my sis room & sometimes things magically disappear under my car seat.. =b
Since my make up could vanish easily, I've decided to collect them & categorise them so that I when I see them, I'd wear them more often...
I have to see them, cause if I don't see them, I'd never use them.. hehe..
oohh.. and i just realized that I only have one blusher & I never like to use it!!
my brushes / eye-liners / mascaras
my lip-glosses, lip balms, lipsticks.. i feel like there are more but can't seem to locate them =b
my make-up basics: powders, foundations, concelears, primers, etc.
my eyeshadows, coloured eye-liners from VS (never seem to know how to wear them =b). hmm.. i need to put more colours on my eyes..
ooohhh and the bobbi brown & VS eye pallete are my makeup saviors.. so many choices & it's a lot cheaper than buying only one shade. (though I've always dream of buying all the colours of eyeshadows.. a girl can only dream...)
now i've add in an entertainment section in my room. since i like to watch TV from my bed. =))
Oh my god! Can you believe it? It's already december.. (such a cliche. i know) I'd love to get excited on thinking of my new year's resolution, wanting to save more money, trying to improve on my time management and eating&living healthily etc.
I think that for this year's resolution, I want to be a better individual by learning to ZIP UP my mouth.
Sometimes, when i could not control my emotions, I would speak my mind without thinking first. That could sometimes get me into trouble & I have learned quite a number of lessons beginning from my teen life to working life.
What I've learned is that all the 'I hate the way she...', 'she's so...', 'I don't like her' could backfire.
I've always known that all these 'he said, she said' can be untrue! (this person hears from that person who heard it from another person and oh god that person could possibly just be making his / her own assumption!)
Gossiping can be FUN but when you are the topic of the gossip, it is not that fun anymore. Everyone has feelings and what's funny / interesting to you may not be the same to the person going through it. After meeting all sorts of people, I have come to realize that everyone has their own reasons in doing something that may be 'wrong' to you. It is really none of our business.
In fact, everyone has their own strengths & weaknesses. Instead of finding others' faults or comparing yourself with others, you should spend time & reflect on your own mistakes. Believe me, that can go on FOREVER.
After this, if I'm really pissed off with someone, I would confide in people whom I really trust and would love me no matter what.
Fatin, this year, please just be NICE =)
P/S: I have to be thinner too as I am getting married. That has got to be on my new year's resolution as well. =b
ishhhh.. i'm so easily distracted... i was happily reading to have & to hold.. then i googled the book review... then only i realized i've read the book!!! the title for UK edition is SPELLBOUND... ishhhh!! haha..
anyways, my friends & i have started a friendly business.. do like us on FACEBOOK!! please, please pretty please... =))))
no need to search here and there for our page as the link is as stated below: ;)
I have been promising myself that I have to read.. I feel so stupid as I have not been reading (as if I read 'smart' books =) )... It's not that I no longer love reading as I do spend a lot on books but I no longer have the drive to spend hours just reading... The books are just as interesting today as it was when I was younger...
I simply miss the moments when I can't wait for exams to be over so that I can read my latest Sweet Valley book or READ them AGAIN!!!
This holiday, I have been trying to read them ( I have more than 30 books that I haven't read yet!! *gasp* & I keep stocking more!!) but as I reach the bookshelf, I would notice how dusty my books are and I'd get distracted with my dressing table that I would be cleaning & throwing stuffs out..
I HAVE TO START READING AGAIN. Urghh.. I think that I should start with my favourite genre of books: Chick Lit!
Can you guess which book would be my first read? hehe..
I've been craving for something sweet & buying some ice creams / cakes would be to easy.. and not CHALLENGING at all.. heheh.. i decide to make my own brownies! hehe..
This recipe is not as easy as the cheesecake as you have to actually BAKE your brownies but it's still doable.. ehehe..
150g digestive biscuits (I used Jacob's wheatmeal)
150 g walnuts
125g unsalted butter, melted
Crush the biscuits & walnuts. Stir the melted butter into the mix. Spread it into your cake dish and set your base!
125g dark chocolate broken into smaller pieces (I just used cadbury cause I never like cooking chocolate.. =b)
75g unsalted butter
400g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g choc chips (i chose the black&white ones)
preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius
melt chocolate gently (hot water bath --> if u were like me thinking that u need to add water & boil it *slaps forehead*, go and google 'hot water bath baking')
Mix butter & sugar. After beating the eggs, mix it with butter & sugar. Pour the melted chocolate & vanilla extract. Pour in the flour & half of the choc chips. Spoon your mix onto the biscuits mix & spread them. Sprinkle the remaining choc chips on top.
my brownies =)
hehe..there was an incident. i do not know how to use the oven at home & i asked my maid to preheat it for me & long story short, there was a fire.. hehe.. we managed to catch it early on so only the top part was burnt and we scraped the burnt layer off.. luckily it turns out okay (at least according to my standards!) hehehe.
the smallest piece ever cause i'm supposed to be on a diet!!!
oohhh.. two weeks ago i made chicken parmigiana.. sounds so fancy but so easy.. hehehe..
sometimes, whenever i'm not doing anything, i like to think of the past. i know living in the past is not a good thing but i like reminiscing on good memories.
this would be one of the boring things that i miss about NZ / uni experience. what i miss the most about 'dating' while mark & i were still students were times when we celebrate our little achievements.
i work better when there's REWARDS / INCENTIVES compared to INTRINSIC MOTIVATION. he knows me so well that whenever he needs me to complete my assignment earlier so that he can refer to it as a 'guide'. i'd usually finish my assignment at least one day prior to the dateline as it'd only take him one whole night to understand the task and complete it. *cough* another similarity with FINA.. hehe..
i never attend classes on days after working SO HARD or during SPECIAL DAYS like raya etc. that's y i hate local unis. abroad, it's okay to attend only half of the lecture without having people to stare at you and the lecturers always upload their notes online! both of us would be too lazy to submit the assignment and usually i'd be the one climbing through the hills to get to the uni to submit our assignments.. sometimes i'd even singgah nab&myto's to submit their assignments as well... just because i never take afternoon naps and i don't sleep late... hehe...
after that i'd usually be glued on my laptop to catch up on my TV series. when mark would wake up he'd bring me to celebrate our achievement my bringing me for late lunch cum dinner and if it's not to late he would allow me to enter as many stores as i want on queen street.. (FYI, he always wants me to PLAN my shopping!!! he needs to understand that i would only realise the things that I NEED when I'm in the shopping mall / street).. hehe...
oh and if it's to late, he'd bring me to FOODTOWN as I love to go through the products and read magazines there..
went with mark to watch ombak rindu just now. oh my god. i love it! would love to watch it over & over again.. corny movie but i love it!! i've never like maya karin but from the movie, i love her! she's so natural! hehe.. so happy =))))))))))))))))
Because of the Big Bad Wolf book sale, I have bought a lot of recipe books.. I thought that this Cheesecake In A Glass recipe is very simple & doable for a lazy person like me.. =b But instead of using fancy martini glasses like nigella, I just used ramekins..
the recipe that i managed to find online... hehe.. but i didn't do any measuring as i'm too lazy to do so..
my chopped strawberries... hehe.. it doesn't look so pretty..
my shortbread biscuits... i simply used my own fingers to crush them =b
distributed the crumbs equally into each ramekin...
the mixture of cream cheese, whipped cream, lemon juice, vanilla extract & icing sugar...
distributed the cream cheese equally...
and finally top it with the chopped strawberries!!
i'm so doing it in a glass next time.. but it's so so so simple and delicious!!!
