Pitch Black

Kinda miss sprawling all my thoughts & feelings here like before when I would prioritized my very minimal leisure time for my diary corner. Sad to say that right now, I do rather slumber my day away just to feel alive. Now that you can tell how harsh my work life is. I'm falling here & there. Add a little mishap left & right. Sometimes I really did wondered why am I still living, like what the eff, this is no human being things. Beastly. Brutal. And whatever shit you wanna call it.


Lately, the latent stress I've been silently letting in has gradually building up the anxiety in me and gone worsen when it is made conscious on my physical. I hate to admit the fact that, I'm utterly weak & brittle right now. I'm dying for cares, loves & supports. A mortal without a soul is like a body without antibody hopelessly permeate insecurities in destroying one inside-out ferociously till the extend whereby living is the most painful option ever.


I let go my dignity, egoistic & reputation just for a hope, because I put all my heart in as I trust this is what I wanted. I was beaten down to disappointment when all I got was a word "choice-less". You've gotta be kidding me. After surviving from the frigging tornadoes, hurricane and tsunami hit, you just have to throw an apocalypse in. Like what the heck you want from me.

You can take away my everything, but please give me a good reason. I can be that generous if I think it's worth doing so. I was compelled to changed unwillingly to become a very not-myself person. Nevertheless, I sorta love it cause I got so brave. Brave to even take that bullet if I have to.


I can wait, but do not keep me hanging aimlessly. I need to know what I should be expecting and not till I got an empty shell. My heart is now dead. I wish to be vanished.

IsMe Beauty & Café

[Food Review]


Teas, coffees, desserts or pastries are my kinda mental therapy and I love lounging over a soothing ambient savoring every bite of that moist cheese cake & sip of tea. Together with Sharon, Kelvin & Jason, we visited IsMe Beauty & Cafe @ Jalan Walter Grenier. Never could I imagine there is such an exquisite cafe at the nook behind the alley of Lot 10. Ironically, I was late for more than an hour due to Friday evening traffic. That was outrages that I caught up in the jam for 2 hours. *rolling eyes*


With that said, I missed out some of the main courses & desserts. Well, that's okay, I tasted more than enough by the way. Before I get into the yummilicious part, here are some of the insights of IsMe Beauty & Cafe.

Coffee is delicious but do you know that it has a beauty secret? IsMe Beauty & Cafe has the idea of bringing together coffee & beauty into a one where you can get your hand on our range of beauty products to help keep your skin happy and healthy all year round, while having a sip on a fresh brewed coffee in a calm, but luxurious atmosphere space!

Let's get started.

♨ Creamy Mushroom Spaghetti

If you're darn famished, go ahead and order a course meal. Al dente spaghetti drenched in creamy mushroom sauce sprinkled with some dried seasoning. Give it a toss and go straight right into your mouth.

Cafe mocha

My cup of coffee. Smooth, thick & milky. I like it.

Chocolate Brownie topped with vanilla ice cream.

Every girl loves chocolate, my god. The richness of hot melt chocolate dressing all over the brownie & that twist of vanilla kick. That's heavenly good.


IMG_6272N

Blueberry cheesecake

Believe it or not, I finished this all by myself. Literally.

Us @ MTV World Stage 2014

I can already feel the aches all over my body the moment I got down from my bed. No, not just because it's MTV World Stage last night, again I was all packed with work errands & personal activities. Every night I came back home with this energy-drained-off body I can't even bother to clean myself up. Can you imagine that sorta knackeredness and it's been on like this for consecutive days. All that happenings came unplanned. I'm prompted for every of that sudden invitations. Say yes. Ok, let's get real, I needed some rest.


So that Friday night I got a call from my BFF that we're going for MTV World Stage to roll as VIP. That sounded so cool cause I missed out the one in 2012 when Justin Bieber was the hottest line up but I have to give out my tix cause I wasn't available in KL. This time round, I don't wanna miss out, not forgetting I was so tired after hanging out with my boyfriend the whole day and I still save some of the energy for the evening.

IMG_6441N
When the sun goes down, I got myself ready with a midriff top and some stick on tattoos on my waist & ankle. Funny or not, the BFF & I did those tattoos in the car instead of in the washroom. It's crazy when comes to the need of water to damp the stickers.


IMG_6434N


IMG_6407N
Here we go, ready to rock the evening like VIP.


IMG_6452N
Wasn't even packed that night. The performance started with Thaitanium, Boys Republic, Yuna and lastly B.O.B which was what everyone was waiting for. Oh well, we aren't familiar with the line ups that night so we were solely on our own joy.


IMG_6463N

Some photos of Boys Republic.

Us having the time of ourselves. Had some Sailor Jerry rums. It was a very dangerous drink when we were that tired already, can easily knock off.

Sweaty!!! It's hot and that's for sure. And my flats were full with sands I can have natural scrubs on my feet. #wtf.

Overall, nothing much to scream about this year's MTV World Stage. I wish they could have more Billboard artists on stage.


That's all for today. See yea.

In The Garage

Good day folk.


Like finally, I have a day off last Sunday. *hopping here & there* *screaming out of joy* *roll happy tears*. That taxing few weeks, 13 hours of work non-stop although it's Raya Holiday, I made it through. Obviously, I'm wilted. My body is currently like in the state without a soul. All that I need is a long eye shut to restore that energy to restart my overhauled-engine. At times, I do wonder, is it worth doing so, I mean like investing all my time & effort in my work just cause I'm that committed when it comes to work. Because of this commitment, time passed so fast before I could realize that year end is approaching and I have done nothing for myself but in turned I let in too much trouble to breach into my life. Argh, work-life balance, a very difficult principle to practice in life.


I love cars. I always do. I'm confident enough to claim that I'm good in driving, just a little reckless nevertheless. My passengers always complain how scary I drive, nah, I'll make sure everyone reaches safely.

Had a cup of their signature Mochatella. It was an amazing cup of caffeinated drink man. I salute their creativity by making a drink out of Nutella chocolate drenched with milk & a cubes of coffee made ice.

Yo!! I want my life back. I just wanna live a little.



That's all for today. Cheerios.

Teleport Back In Time

That Sunday morning, breakfast was good and I was all elated until I received a shocking news that my ex-classmate was involved in a dreadful accident and the most unfortunate thing was, she left us all to heaven. We were once close together when we were in high school although we have different skin colour and different races, but I lost contact with most of my classmates since graduation. Nevertheless, that doesn't excludes me from grieving for the lost of a friend. It's like a wake up call to treasure people around me before it's too late. To you my friend, rest in peace.


Something ancient, something exquisitely rustic can really catch my attention. One of my good friends did mentioned to me the wonder of this little museum and said that it's worth visiting and we shall check ourselves in someday. Before that can happen, I brought mum along so that she can reminisce her childhood or her days in the past cause after all, she's from the 50's.

The alley was narrow and every little corner was carefully stationed with antiques that it's so crowded I couldn't focus every bits. They were amazing by the way.

For the record, I love this picture most for some reasons. On a funnier note, after posting this up on Facebook, many friends of mine claimed that the scene/photo exude that kinda eerie feel. Well I think that many things that are old and under dim light, they create some sorta impression of cold & spooky. Don't you think so?


DSC02480N


The scene I fret most is, whatever things that I'm using now will be in the museum one day. For example, look what I spotted?
20140425_015NN
But I just left UTAR a year ago. Why is it on shelf already? #wtf

Those time.


That's all for today. Hope you enjoy the photos. Sorry if it's too spooky for some of you, rustic ma~
