Trip Back
This was the most 'bestest' flight back to Malaysia ever. I got to sit on the newly refurbished Boeing 777. Leg room was INCREDIBLE...i actually had to stand up to reach the magazine holder!!! Seats could be adjusted to lay flat like a bed...comfy duck down doona and pillow. Excellent food and drinks....good service....All that made the trip too short!!! Gold Class..I'm Lovin it!

Dino Dog

Muffin was in a doggy hotel while we were cruising. The first thing I did when he got home was to give him a big scrub. Being silly me....I made him into a Dinosaur complete with spikes on his back. COOL but definately an UNHAPPY looking pomeranian. Sorry Muff..
Must go Shopping

I love to shop around even in a teeny weeny town like Echuca. Thats the Victorian side of the Murray. There was this really cute but overpriced lolly store with a christmas tree decorated with candy canes. Can't do that in will turn into a tree full of ANTS! Yikes! Nasty little buggers.

Christmas decor everywhere in that town. Wanted to buy the cinnamon sticks but can't carry it back to M'sia ( i wanted the HUGE one...its just me being greedy).

The little worms and cookie man are from Beechworth bakery... Yummmy looking. Didn't buy them (I don't need more visits to the dental clinic).
Boat Trip

I was away last weekend with some friends on the Murray on board the Bella Casa houseboat. The houseboat was GREAT! Didn't even felt like it was afloat. I got to drive the houseboat as well..not that hard. We had chinese, aussie BBQ, authentic Thai and saucy mexican food all in one weekend. It was a relaxing and Oh-too-much food getaway. Checkout the breathtaking sunset, MEAT galore and the houseboat (with a Jacuzzi on the top deck).

Taxi Dining (Not that great afterall)

Finally we got a seat! But we think the food is over-rated. Looks good but taste crap! I definately won't be going back there... The crab gyoza wasn't delightful because everything just seemed like it was BLENDED and wrapped together on a bed of seaweed. The sushi was nice though. Maybe sushi bar next time?

Here comes Daniel Henny

Adriana Googled his name and found topless pics of Dan! She's not a fan of muscular men. Hey me too but this one is exceptional..... Model for Tom Ford Gucci....

Is it wrong to secretly hope that my future son will grow up to be this smoking hot?

Oprah on Men

If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.
Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.

Always have your own set of friends separate from his.
Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.
If something bothers you, speak up.
Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.

You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within.
Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are...
even if he has more education or in a better job.
Do not make him into a quasi-god.
He is a man, nothing more, nothing less.

Never let a man define who you are.
Never borrow someone else's man.
If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.

Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.

No food pictures today...

I totally forgot to take pics when I went out for an Indo lunch today with the gorgeous Adriana. We had Mee Ayam, Bihun Ayam, and two Es Nangka. Yuuummmy. We talked on and on (evil laughs in between)... and went around the city shops doing girly stuff (smelling moisturizers, trying on this and that, even played around with hats....hehhehe....) It was so much fun. Childish^^ Ended the day with Koko Black Ice Choc/Coffee. Bliss.

These two guys were performing outside Fed Square 2 weeks ago. They were wearing suits before they tore each others clothes off to reveal AUSSIE undies!! WOO HOOOoo... Joe thinks I'm a bit of a pervert taking pics of them. I didn't ZOOM in la... but I guess you can see it. Have fun perving....

Can meal (NO NO NO)

Saw Adriana online and we chit chat a bit...before jumping offline to catch OPRAH. It was a REPEAT! Seen it before..the one with Queen Latifah and her Beauty shop makeover. But nevertheless, it was good. Lunch straight out from a can...Green curry (note: never buy this thing again...EWWWWWWW). Therefore to comfort myself after the scary curry, I sunk my teeth into this cute strawberry tart from Laurent. Oh they make the "BESTEST" things.... abit overpriced!!!!! Can't wait to meet up with Adriana for lunch at Es Teller 77 tomorrow. Gossip time^^

My favourite instant noodles. Kimchee noodles with egg. So simple. 3 minutes? Not too sure about how good this is for my body..who cares.

Upper Restaurant

We couldn't get a table at Taxi Dining so we ended up going to Upper/Lower. This place is really good too...... the food was awesome.....and the wine list was impressive too. Will definately go back soon. Lower restaurant is a bar...with loads of bar food and looking from the crowd its attracted I assume its equally tastebud tantalizing. A must try.

Scallops with avocado/shallots/etc; fresh osyters with something...

Wagyu beef; some fish with lentil.... oh so tasty

Key to good health and looking swell is to.....EAT WELL. Haven't exactly been eating properly these days. Some days too much bread, too much meat, too much snacks yum yum, too much leaf (facial colour turning green). Can't seem to find a day to exercise! HAHA.... lame. I did go the gym twice last week. Running on the treadmill makes me think I'm a hamster....going fast but not going anywhere.
Sizzling Day 2
Strappy tops and shorts today.....31 degrees AGAIN. Did some cleaning in my closet..and dug out some flower clips. Bought them when i was in Year 11 which was yonks ago. Put them on my hair...aww PRINCESS...

Ate half a tub of frozen yoghurt.... Gotta cool down my brain before any more brain cells melt. Yummmy...

Received my monthly subscription of 'O' magazine and can't stop staring at Nate's pic.. He's so good looking. WHY IS HE GAY?

Makybe Diva Wins....

She's did it! 3 times in a row to win the prestigious Emirates Melbourne Cup. There wasn't much stuff to watch on telly today so I had to watch it.... Didn't bet though but I seriously think it was the Diva's day... so if I did..then I'd be a couple bucks richer than yesterday! DOH! moment...

Can't seem to put a pic of the DIVA up...

The temperature hit 31 degrees today...oh my...TOO WARM. Its like I'm back in KK. Think I'm coming down with a fever...... need my Mr Fever-Remover...My Appa's favourite cooling strip.

Snacks tonite...Peanut/green tea/red bean mochi + Krispy Kreme fresh from Sydney..... Such nice friends....

Van's Book Corner

I am a SADIST. Yeah so I like to read all stories that are heart-wrenching, tear dropping and all. Most of the time I pick books that have strong female lead roles. Women that have been abused by loved ones etc.. This one I bought on Sunday...A story of a little girl Samira, brought up to be Samir (a boy's name) because her dad was ashamed that his firstborn was a girl.... then she had to choose between her desire to be Bashir's wife or betray her family and reveal her true identity... Apparently its REAL.... A must read.
An Italian Nite

Bye Bye to the last Tenor.... He stood behind the piano all nite. Didn't once move a spot! The conducter/pianist was amazing...and our Melbourne symphony orchestra was delightful too! Bravo Bravo.

Rice Addict

Been gaining massive weight on my hips since I got my part time job SITTING DOWN the whole day. Partly also due to the fact that I eat out more.....Aiyoooo.... So...I packed my own lunch this morning. Ume Rice Triangles. Carbs are not that bad for the body.

The Attack of the Muffin

Had pizza for dinner last nite. Left the leftovers on the coffee table. My dog couldn't resist the smell and decided to chew a hole through it while we were out....and ate all the pizza toppings!!!!!

Kimchi Chigae

Silky tofu hotpot with loads of kimchi (SPICY to the MAX!!!!!) and mushroom. Presentation not too good but its soooo good with white rice. These are the kind of stuff I eat when the fridge is empty and i couldn't be bothered to buy anything from Safeway/Coles.

Go Healthy!

Had this grilled chicken thing on a bed of 'iron-ful' baby spinach, cherry tomatoes (my favourite!) and avocados. Chicken was tasty but too much avocado....made me sick. Avocados don't have any taste!
