This post is about the money I spent recently! On shopping! hehe... It's the mega sales here in Malaysia so during this period, everything should be on big discount and great sales! Every mall is participating, so basically every store in the mall will have signs of "Big Sales", "Up to 70% off", "Buy 1 free 1", "Lowest price from RM30" bla bla.. All of this excites me.. And the sales is going to be over soon, and I haven't even start shopping yet! I can't do this to myself, I knew I must walk around, even if I end up empty handed. I feel so guilty to myself if I didn't throng the mall at all and just let this "big event" slip by me..
(By now, you would have thought I would have splurge on everything) :D

It started on a Thursday, when I take the shuttle bus from Bangsar LRT station to Mid Valley... I waited for about less than 20 mins, and the bus came, most people that were waiting there went up the bus, it's decent (I say this because my impression of the KL buses, are like the dark gloomy crazy driven Metrobus) and I've got a place to sit. The schedule is that, there's a bus every 30 mins, it's about 8++ and during Ramadhan month, so I'm lucky to hop on the bus. The driver waited for a few mins, and we reached MV south court in about 5mins.. Also lots of people waiting to board the bus, back to Bangsar LRT.

So, i started walking around, basically I'm satisfied to have 'visited' all the stores I wanted to in that 2 hours.. but till now, I really ended up with nothing. I got tired, imagine walking from North to Center to South court for few levels. I'm carrying my laptop, and a handy bag that contains my empty lunchbox in it. Still it's heavy.. and I get nothing! I'm restless. Why did I get nothing? Maybe because I'm not the impulsive buyer type and I think twice before I part with my money.. The other word for it is stingy. Maybe I love window shopping more! I love to see the people, the decorations in the store, the pretty stuffs on discount. Now, not all that we see, we must own it. It's about the process... This the fun thing I love about walking around the mall.. And preferably alone. Cause you can stop and admire, walk away and stop again before making a U-turn and move on to the next store, before trying some silly clothes. It's such a good exercise for the mind, soul and body!

I went in to the last store of the night, Uniqlo feeling a bit exhausted. Yea, when you least expect, you will get something. That's almost always true when it comes to shopping. I think I literally got my energy back, I like the clothes there, it's so comfy, and casual. I bought 2 tops.. a singlet and a T shirt. Both are very comfortable and of course cheap, total spent, under RM40. I'm happy! 

That's MV on a Thursday, next was Bangsar Village on one of the weekdays. I never walk into Peacock normally, but it's just instinct I need to go in and take a look that day. Of course what attracted me was the word Sales up to 70% again. I bought 2 tops! A yellow flowery top and a simple Nautica blue tops. Total spent, under RM70.

Now I've got 4 new tops, and at the time of writing this, I've just worn 1 of them.. But real soon, I will wear all of them! :D

Next? ZALORA! Yes, somehow it seems to be the big thing now, with all the marketing they are doing.. S was talking about the TV advertisement with some songs and dances which her kid dance along too? But I've not seen them yet.. Hmmph.. Some friends bought from ZALORA, I did too before! And this is the 2nd time, I bought another 2 tops, total spent, under RM100. That's with a discount coupon from Boost Juice, but the promotion ended on 31 Aug. And it's free shipping. Actually I think I made a mistake, I don't really like one of them, but heck.. I will learn to love it! I know I will.. My fashion sense is not that great!

Seems that everything comes in pairs.. I've got a total of 6 tops from this megasales spree. You would have thought, gosh just 6 and make a fuss of it? You may get all 6 in a go in 1 store. Yah? Yah, but for someone like me, it's a very happy, exciting and contented moment, getting the stuffs I like with a small price.

Ok, we are done for tops, let's move on to skirts.. Hehe.. Nah... I'm joking... I didn't get any skirts..
But I did bought a beige heel, 1 casual and 1 dri-fit shirt for Otto at Mines, all coincidentally at RM27 each, and a exercise wheel at RM39.90 which we must put to good use, this is to train the abs and shoulder part..

I'm happy, that's why I need to write this down. The money I spent are not a lot.. but it is a lot of money to the poor I'm sure and not worth mentioning at all to the rich. It's just the little things that can make me, or every other woman happy. And we need to stay happy for ourselves, because life is about being happy! If you're too stressed out from your work and life, give yourself a break! You deserve it.. Go shopping, go for a hike or go out for a drink and have some me-time.

*Just in case you are wondering why I put the picture above instead of my shopping loots, don't you feel like it's smiling happily? Yah.. just put in some imaginations there :D

Thanks for reading. I hope you will stay happy always!

Food for thoughts

I always loved mangosteen, though it's a local fruit, but it's not really cheap.. Mum normally buys it only when we are buying durians. Why? Because it counteracts for the heaty durian, as it is of a cooling nature.. So if we eat loads of durians (love it very much too), we can eat loads of mangosteen.. Yin and yang..

On normal days, rarely get to eat it..

What I like about it is the outlook, it's a dark purple fruit with a cute cheeky collar at the stem, a round body and a reddish, bit yellowish small butt.. Isn't it elegant? Of course the taste is superb too.. Very juicy, sweet and refreshing..

Its hard on the outer, very hard, but we don't need a knife.. Just put it between your 2 palms and squeeze it.. But be careful when you are opening it, as the purplish rind from these mangosteens are bit hard to wash off if it sticks to your clothes..

Then reveals the bouncy and juicy white flesh.. (Well sometimes it's yellowish caused it's spoilt)
It's quite a contrast, hard and dark on the outside, soft and white on the inside.. I'm soo craving for the fruit now...

It's amazing what mangosteen gotta offer.. Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour agent, so yes, it can possibly preventing cancer.. Of course it's loaded with heaps of vitamins..

Life's like a mangosteen..
Some people looks tough on the outside, but they may need some TLC in the inner self..
Some days we see darkness but once we go through it, there's another bright day ahead..

Hope it's a bright and happy day ahead for u...

A click a day

When I get the time to hook on Internet, there's 1 website that I'll first open up. Whether I connect from laptop or mobile. This one website is

It's been a norm for me to click on the "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button.
Apparently after clicking, sponsors will pay for mammograms for women in need. I believed in that, just like how I believed the importance of mammograms. Mammography is a low-dose X-ray examination that can detect breast cancer and the earlier it is detected, the higher survival rate it is. It is advisable that women age 40 onwards start going for mammogram test. We may be fortunate, that we can afford to pay for the fees, but not all women are blessed with this privilege.

I hope this click can help them, wherever they are.

Smart Casual

Just as I reached office today, I saw an email that made me jumping with joy! 
After more than 1.5 years in this company, my wish came true!

Yes! I wished that I can wear jeans to work one day, just how I used to in previous employments.
With immediate effect, ye! Smart casual is the way to go! 

I can forget about the formal attire (not that I adhere to it strictly before this but I did tried).

Na na na, I smiled on and off and when no one's looking. I was already thinking what to wear and feels excited about starting work again on Monday! Time to dig out my jeans! 

I feel so motivated to start work again next week! 

Thanks company, that's +1 point to you!
