1. The Enchanted - Rene Denfield
Tuna Meltz
Saturday, February 21, 2009
I had a fulfilling dinner tonight at a very unknown restaurant 10 minutes away from my home. The menu was very simple and I was actually not impressed. I thought the menu could have more varities, but I was starving so I just picked their today special: Tuna Meltz. The description of it was very simple but it was neatly done, I must say, when it was served. I first thought it as quite pricy but I was so full after cleaning up the plate. I changed my mind again.

As I was eating, it suddenly struck to me why no restauranteur tries to specialise in serving soup? Yes, just mainly soup served with garlic bread. How's that?? Of course, can serve with something else la but along that idea.

Clean ears

I have been busy reading Tony Buzan's The Power of Social Intelligence recently. Correction: rereading since I lost track where I have stopped. Buzan listed top 10 listening habits that would damage your listening skill and weaken your Social Intelligence. I would only highlight no 2: Trying to do other things while listening. Good that Buzan highlights this. Because I would able to whack my friend the next time he tries to read newspaper just because our conversation suddenly decides to "take a break". I wanted to talk continue talking about a certain topic but he suddenly takes out a paper like a magician fetching a white rabbit off a hat. He never even bothers to engage me in the news he is reading... Just laughing to himself while reading. It happened twice. Thank god. I decided not to have tea or coffee with him anymore because I don't want to be neglected during our conversation...

P.S: Thank you all for keep coming back! Internet was too slow for the past few days for me to update the blog!

Please remember your position

A little incident broke out in KLCC's lrt station.

There was a foreign couple lining up at the wrong side of the queue to the train. The line has two red straps for passengers to walk out at KLCC's stop. Somehow the couple were standing inside the red line, not outside like the rest. And there were other people queuing behind the couple. Later, the LRT security worker told the couple and the behinds to "line up". Everyone behind them, dispersed. The couple instead of lining behind the others, overtook the first person's spot who was lining up correctly. That first person told the couple to line up and a ruckus broke out. The lady of the couple increased her voice "We were lining up here" over and over again. The security guy came and told the couple again to line up. And again that lady raised her voice telling the guy and that person and the people behind the first person that she was lining up. Everyone was staring at them. Before it become an ugly scene, the security took the couple up away from the crowd. I last saw them going up on the escalavator....

I don't understand if it's so difficult to accept and acknowledging a mistake. The couple were obviously not lining up at the right allocated space. That is a fact.

I sometimes just don't understand is it that hard to line up.

Happy Valentine!
Friday, February 13, 2009
Other than spending Valentine with my pillow, I will be joining my friends for a reunion but somehow... it is quite quiet about the confirmation but anyway I have another appointment in the afternoon so it's alright if no one shows up.

Out of curiosity, I played with my tarot cards. And somehow I got weird reply. I have two tarot cards but I used the Magical Unicorns by Doreen Virtue, because it's easier than the traditional tarot. I just think of a question while shuffling the deck and then ask the unicorn how many cards I should spread and I got 4.

So I did.

The card reply was:

Pet - You love and understand animals

Explanation: Animals and pets love me and appreciate me. This makes me think back of the cats that scratched me and made me bled... Ish ...

But I was touched with the last paragaph of the last pragraph in the book. It also says it could also be a message from animals who passed on... It reminds me of Dai-chan, my friend's cat who died of cancer. Though he liked scratching me but I was truly sad to see him grew skinny day by day until patting him was painful to his body.

Simplicity - Put your energy into the basics, and let go of excess

Explanation: Things have gotten too complex. It's time to ask myself what I really want and what I really know that I don't want.

I drew this card because there's a need in life to clean out some part of life - cleaning the room or even a messy relationship. When you clean the space around you, the mind will feel clearer and more focussed. Energy increases too.

This card also means you have been trying too hard for a project. Focus on the simple areas, and the complex area will take care of itself.

>> Wow. This says a lot bout me.

True - Yes, what you're asking about is the truth

Explanation: This card wants you to know that you're correct in what you are thinking about this situation. You already know the truth, even if its knowledge thats held deeply in your heart. Your body also knows the truth ... You can also hear the truth from your angels ... Your angels always tell you the truth ... even if you don't want to hear like telling you to make a life change. This card asks you to tell the truth to yourself and the others.

>> Oh. I have decided on this: change jobs.

Teamwork - Work with others to make rhis situation come about

Explanation: The situation you've asked about will resolve itself with the help of other people. You need to be part of a team to make it happen in the best possible way. Teamwork means that everyone shares in the work and the fun. It also means thinking about other people's feelings, as well as the group's goal.

This card asks you to be a good team player. First, be open to asking for help. Second, when people try to help, let them do so! Third, you will need to offer to help others.

This time reading is more relevant than the last time I had. Or maybe I understand the cards better this time.

Do you believe in tarot reading?

Love song~***

I'm here to present you the third series of the Valentine Day songs [recommended by renaye]!

Have you all heard of Rimi Natsukawa? She is a Okinawan folk singer from Japan. I got to know her through one of her songs called Matsuri no Kaze at listen.fm. I really like this festival song. You could hear the traditional drum [I assume] in the background and listening to it makes me feel like I'm in those Japanese summer festival, minus the yukata.


Though Valentine day should be a happy moment, I decided to post a sad love song for today's entry. After all, there's always heartbroken people out there. And there are also not heartbroken people who don't mind to listen to heartbroken song!

Hope you guys like it! And unfortunately it's another Japanese song! It's a soundtrack to a Japanese movie called Nada Sou Sou. I have never seen it though it was aired on Astro, a cable tv in Malaysia.



Romanji and English translation are in the video. Happy viewing!

Love song~**
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
To be frank, I never like Ai Otsuka after listening to one of her hits where she spins and spins 360 degrees in the PV and I almost puke. That was the first and last time I watched her pv. But her song "Chu" is quite cute. That was my her first song I accidentally heard online.

Pocket by Ai is the second song I listen - stumbled across on someone's blog about this song. I listened to this song and thought it as quite boring because the tune is quite bland but not until I read the how much that blogger likes the lyric. And so I searched for the lyric translation and ... I really like the lyric because I can feel how touching it is! You can read a translated interview here about this song.

Hope you guys like it! It's the second song for the Valentine series!



anata no POKKE ni ojamashite
futari wo tsunagu te no himitsu wo
dare ni mo shirarenai you ni

kawaru koto shiranai

kono saki nan nen tatta toshite mo
anata wo itoshiku omotte
sotto ai wo fukameru wa

anata no omo ni to ka ja nakute
are yasui anata no te wo

anata no POKKE ni ojamashite

miageru to massugu mae wo mite

ganbatte tsukuru atashi no ryouri

anata no futan to ka ja nakute

futari de aruite yukou
futari de suteki ni narou

sekai de ichiban
suki de makeru ki ga shinai yo

English translation:

Sneaking my hand into your pocket,
Our fingers intertwined in secret
As if we were hiding it from the light of the world.
Softly then, I fell deeper into love.
Of things changed I do not know, but my feelings are
That throughout the next however many years
My thoughts will only be of loving you.
Gently then, I fell deeper into love with you.

Giving warmth to your delicate hands,
I rest reassured that I am causing no burden
In staying always by your side.

Slipping my hand into your pocket,
My eyes follow your tall frame, looking up
At your face that leans towards mine.
At times, I still giggle shyly to myself.
I know too that you always make sure
To finish those dishes that I try so very hard to make.
Time and again, your gentle thoughtfulness
Has me chuckling to myself, embarrassed.

Resting in the comfort that I am not a responsibility,
Let us walk together anew again from here.
Hand in hand, we will shape ourselves a dream.

With my hand in your pocket, I am warmed in
Knowing that I can never lose this love ?a love above all love.
Always, I will be at your side.
Always, I will remain by you.
