Funny realization
Monday. 1.1.07 9:13 pm
I was checking my yahoo mailbox this morning and I realized something; someone didn't reply my email. I won't really miss this person's reply but I realized how sad is this person. This person is a guy I met in a shopping mall in Wellington, New Zealand. We happened to be in front of an Asian department and he approached me because I was wearing a hood. He found it funny for a person to wear a hood in a heating environment. So we chatted and chatted for like 2 hours. But within that 2 hours, I'm frightened. Frightened because of the topic we discussed. He's a guy in the late 30s looking for someone to settle down. And he wants an Asian partner. I'm fine with that statement but he was hinting hinting *me*. Yikes... I thought he was just joking with me. Yea because of that, I thought it would be harmless to keep in touch with someone like that. Yea we did contact each other via email but there was something wrong with the email. He kept on saying he misses me so much or he's so crazy over me that he wanted to marry me. Wah ... that scares me until the last reply I received from him. He might have noted that I never replied him about the 'love' messages so he asked me if I have any man in my life. Haha .. as a strong willed girl, I replied him that I don't need any man and I'm enjoying my life as a 20 year old girl. That was the last reply from him. To be frank, I'm so happy that he decided to stop befriending me and sad that people could just discard a friendship just like dirt. Oh well, I'm so much relieve.

It's New Year Eve, people.
Sunday. 12.31.06 11:41 pm
As the title says it all: today is the New Year Eve and it's like 20 more minutes to a brand New Year. So what did I spend my day?

Yesterday was Eve's Eve and I spent it by doing shopping alone for 12 hours in the city. I went to watch the Night at the Museum movie and it was a good laughter and joy thing for people to kill time to welcome the New Year. Speaking of that, thank god, the stray dogs at my home have finally given up in welcoming the New Year. Yes, the residents of my area do not need an extra sound effect or some kind of reminder ... After the movie, I went to KLCC to shop for my neighbour's newborn. Attempt I would say. I thought I could watch Cicakman but I just ran out of time. What an adversity for me since I was already in front of the cinema. In fact, three cinemas to be precise. So do check out for my movie review for this movie.

Today I spent my day, again, doing shopping. But in prior to that, I went to the hair saloon and they really kept me there for 3 hours. I had my hair treatment for the second time. It's amazing to see some big improvement of my scalp; I don't scratch my head anymore like a cat that needs some anti flea medicine and I got no dandruff fluff on my clothes. Amazing isn't it?? Yea after that, I just went to Subang Parade. I thought of skipping Parkson but luckily I didn't because I got a few new apparels for next year. Yay... and they are 50% off. What do you think?

Today is not only about shopping but also some crazy things I have not seen. Before I finished shopping on my agenda, I was supposed to buy Baskin Robin's ice cream since I would get 31% discount. And you know what? People were just too frenzied about the ice cream, which sent the staff speaking really loud to call out our numbers. My number was 518. I seriously have not seen Malaysians being so wild about ice cream. It's just ice cream for crying out loud. If it's just ice cream, why did I bother to line up as well? Oh well, that's because my mum told me to be kiasu [afraid of losing] to fight for our ice cream share. Right. And of course I got my share which I don't even know what flavour I bought. XD

Though I was happy with the way I spent my 2 days, I was also sad because Yurikamome site for anime, japanese drama and manga has just closed down. I'm not sure if it's for good or not but it's just a waste since this site has strong reputation. It's actually more than that; I now lost one of the best place to download anime. What a headache.

I thought of doing my New Year resolution but I don't like to do it when I'm crowded with people. Argh ... this is indeed a pain in the neck.

Happy New Year people. Let's maximize our time eating and sleeping together.
