Journaling: you have been going through so much for such a tender age. From the moment you were born you have been struggling to survive. With everything that has happened, I am so happy that you are in my  life. I don’t know what will I do without you. I love you...

listening: Unwritten by NATASHA BEDINGFIELD
eating: plain rice with curry chicken
drinking: Milo
wearing: black shirt
feeling: disappointed because I have to work during weekend
weather: hot
wanting: my day off so badly
needing: more scrapbook therapy and a facial
thinking: how to creatively handle and dealing with people you can’t stand
enjoying: American Idol Season 10
wondering: if I have the guts to just quit my job

I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

***Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
Oh, oh, oh

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Project Love Me: Prompt#4 Words of Wisdom

This week prompt: Words of Wisdom

Project Love Me: Prompt#3 The Flip Side

This week prompt: Dreams: The Flip Side
”Welcome to Week Three of Project: Love, Me!

So far we’ve covered our current dreams and dreams from our past.  This week, we want to focus on dreams that were lost along the way.  For better or worse, not every dream becomes a reality but sometimes the loss of a dream contributes to the person that we are today.  This weeks prompt is:

Dreams Unrealized

Scrap a layout about a dream that for one reason or another will never come true. What was your dream and why have you given it up?  How do you feel about that?  What have you learned through the process of not realizing this dream?” excerpt from Project Love Me Blog.

The kit: Stitches by Wimpychompers Creations
The layout:


It took me awhile to scrap about my Dreams Unrealized. The dream I have to let go. Finally today I got the courage to scrap about it.

spreading the love

It's a public holiday here in Malaysia for some states and I am really really happy for the day off. That means I have a chance to do things I love which is hunting the galleries for inspiration. I found a few that really capture my eyes. Here are 5 of them in no partifcular order. Enjoy the eye candies!!!

#Day 6 - A picture that makes you laugh

Suddenly Peekingsuddenlypeeking-web

  credit: MY CT Rocks kit Quickpage (2009)

Journaling: When we were having dinner at my friend’s wedding, Hazirah was busy playing with her candy hand phone toy. She kept on eating the candy until the candy couldn’t dropped out of the hole. She shake the toy and she could her some noise coming from inside the toy. She really was curious about the sound. That was when she took a peek at the hole and made that funny face. I couldn’t helped but laugh and snapped a picture of her.

What I think? : Faster

“An ex-con sets out to avenge his brother's death after they were double-crossed during a heist years ago. During his campaign, however, he's tracked by a veteran cop and an egocentric hit man. “

starring: Dwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thorton and Oliver Jackson-Cohen


What I  think ?
* Not one of Dwayne Johnson best movie. It was good but it wasn’t great.
* The plot was simple enough, revenge and redemption.
* It’s a little bit dark and twisted for my taste and the ending is a little bit predictable.
* the action part of it was great. I just love it when he looked at the guy and just shoot him in the head. No talking and no question asked.
* make me think of my own hit list. heheh at the moment the list seems to grow a little bit.
* Surprisingly I don’t even remember his name in the movie. All I remember is his brother’s name Gary (the one that got killed)
* if you love pure action movie , then this movie is for you.

my random Tuesday


# I woke up early in the morning to send my eldest to school. Oh boy the early morning traffic was quite bad
# I can’t believe that I’ve been talking the whole day today.
# I am a bit disappointed because nobody pick up on the assignment. I just wanted to test them if anyone of the will take the initiative and do what is necessary. Majority of them failed. Hemmm
# I don’t know why I am working like crazy when she is not around and feel like running away from work when she is. Is it me or is the organization who is getting out of control?
# The demand is getting higher and there’s not enough of us to provide  the services and the supply
# Working is not as much fun as it used to be. Something get lost a long the way and nobody is doing anything to improve the work environment. Stress is every where!!!
# Since when work has become my whole life! This is not what I sign up for.

it’s all about Nikita

I've finally got a chance to watch Nikita. This is totally going to be my new favorite. I love the old TV show La Femme Nikita and was very disappointed when they cancelled the show. I am glad that the new show continue where the last one left off. I’ve always wonder what happened to Nikita when she left Section One.

Overall I enjoy the show but somehow it has Alias feel to it but I don’t really mind.

3 reasons why Nikita is like Alias

#1. Double Agent
Alias:  - Sydney play a double agent in SD-6
Nikita – Alex play a double agent in Division

#2. They lost someone they love because of their job
Alias: – Sydney’s fiancé was killed by SD-6 cleaner
Nikita- Nikita’s fiancé was killed by Division cleaner

#3. Women that can really kick-ass
Both women in these shows can really kick-ass and can be very resourceful when it comes to protecting themselves


New Episode is coming this January 27th 2011. I can’t wait!!!

#Day 3 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show
I have so many favorite TV Shows, but Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my all time favorite. I was so sad when they ended the show after only season 7. I think they can go up till season 8. I love all the cast in that show – Buffy,Willow, Xander,  Angel, Spike, Oz, Cordelia, Mr Giles, even Dawn and Anya. They have so many colorful characters and so many layers.

30 day photo challenge: Day #2 16.01.2011

Day 2 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest


I don’t really think I have been close with anybody for a longer period of time. I used to think I am a little bit weird and different from anybody else. I used to keep things to myself and always let things slide and move on. Hence the come and go of friends.
I’ve meet her at NRE a few years back and we have been friends ever since. I think that’s the longest and closest person I have ever been with. She helped me through a lot especially during my blackest moment.
