So, here is the post that everyone been asking me about, my KL trip.

I spent 2.5 weeks in KL, spent most of my time in the banks with my mom, sorting out all the accounts stuff and also going round to try different food. Believe it or not, I was roaming around KL alone most of the time, did the shopping alone, had breakfast/lunch alone and watch dvd alone. Hahahaha a relaxing holiday indeed.

One of the highlights would be my phone got stolen while I was shoe shopping in KLCC, happened in the NOSE shoe shop. I am pretty sure I knew who stole my phone because I noticed them the moment I stepped into the shop, there were two of them, one guy and one girl. I was smsing baby while browsing the shoes, spotted a pair, threw my phone back into my bag (I didn’t zip my bag), picked up the shoes, signalled a sales girl, stretched my hand into bag to pick phone, phone was gone. All happened in less than 2 minutes. Pfft.. so I went back to my mom’s office, called my mobile, a Malay guy answered and hang up quickly. So I smsed him “Please return my phone, I will pretend nothing’s happened and pay you some cash”. No reply, then my sister told me “Iyoh, those stupid Malays, you wrote in English, they wouldn’t understand, must write in Malay!”. I totally did not realise that fact!

Sigh… so I spent the money that I prepared to buy 2 PSPs, one for me, one for Matt as Xmas present; to buy my phone (N95). L now I have to think what to get baby for Xmas

OK... will stop here. I will post Part 2 later, I have to go to bed now.. yawn

I am now sitting at Dome KLIA, waiting to board the flight back to Perth in 5 minutes.

A few incidents happend at Dome while I was having my tea, crying children, spilled drinks, broken cup. Very often, we would expect these incidents are caused by those Malaysian from the lower socia economic group that hardly travel. Surprisingly all the incidents happend at Dome 10 minutes ago were all caused by western foreigners.

Haha... maybe because there were hardly any Malaysians here, maybe they still prefer mamak stalls and their Kopi - O..

Ok, I wish myself to have a safe flight.

I got some really bad news yesterday, my godmother's son is diagnosed with cancer. He is only 42 year-old with 3 young kids, the eldest is 12 and the youngest is not even schooling.

Lately, I came acrossed many incidents that taught me to treasure what I have and live like there is no tomorrow. To be honest, Asians (especially Chinese) are brought up to plan everything. Before we were born, our parents already thought of our name, who should be our godparents; after we were born, they plan which language should be our mother tongue, which kindy to go; then when we turned 4, which primary school should we attend, Malay or Chinese school; should we learn piano, painting; sports or tuition. Then when we finished primary school, we have to decide what do we want to do as career because you have to either pick science stream or art stream; in college, we had to pick to do either local uni program, Aust prog, British or USA prog. And the planning goes on......

Right now, people who are at the same age as me are planning about their future, such as marriage, housing, retirement. Most of them are thinking of how to save enough money so that they don't have to work and achieve financial freedom. And they are doing a tremendous job to move forward to their dreams.

For the people who told me 'to live like there is no tomorrow' are the people who hardly make ends meet, or people who do not have anything to guarantee their debt-free home and retirement.

Maybe you can argue by saying living like there is tomorrow can be applied on other things, such as relationship. But I also believe that you will be thinking things like 'I want to plan a trip together to improve our relationships', 'maybe we should start saving more so we can rent a better place to live together'; all these are plannings. Of course there are short term plannings and long term plannings

For me, I could never live like there is no tomorrow, because I believe if I live like that, there will definitely be no tomorrow that I wish to live.

Went to this Vietnamese restaurant with my mom. We ordered one of the chef's special, 'stuffed quid'.

The squid is stuffed with mince pork, potatoe and yam. Taste ok but the squid is damn tough, felt like chewing rubber band.

Sorry, my hand shook when I took this picture. This is my favourite, "net spring roll", not those ang mo spring rolls we get in Perth.

The spring roll wrap was like a net with holes, stuffed with fresh mince pork and vegetables.

The wrap is so crispy that taste soooo yummy, crispy yet it melted in my mouth.

I have eaten a lot of good food back here in KL., i.e. rice liquor crab, seafood, durian and many more. surprisingly I haven't gained alot of weight so far, phew! Maybe I did but I am in denial..bluek

Anyway, the hot thing in KL now is 'China girls'... * eyes rolling. A couple of my parents' friends have kept China women as their mistress. One has a permanent mistress and he keeps her in an apartment, another one will travel to Seremban to find this girl who works as a prostitute.

The amazing thing is everyone in the neighbourhood knows about it yet his wife doesn't know (the one who goes to Seremban). This bastard was so bad that he even took a photo of the girl and showed it to my mom! Erm.. the girl was semi naked. So I questioned my mom, why didn't she tell his wife, my mom said it is not right to break someone's family apart. My mom told me the wife heard the rumours yet she didn't bother to verify. I guess she was just afraid to know the truth because they have been married for so long and now only the husband decided to f*** someone else.

This particular bastard even told them that he has to take viagra with Guinese Stout before he has sex witht he girl and he doesn't use condom. EEeewwww....

So no wonder majority of the Malaysian women hate China girls so much.

I better ask Matt if there are any China girls at his mine site... pfft

Sometimes I do wonder how does 'death' feel? Sometime I lie in bed and wonder how does it feel to slit my wrist and let the blood flow.

Sometimes I feel that I have endured too much that I wish to see the finishing line.

Sometimes I doubt that the tunnel has an exit.

Sometimes I doubt that there is heaven.

For sure I would indulge in some shopping back in KL. Have a look at the things I have bought. :p I refuse to check my bank account in Perth :s

Sony Vaio FZ15G. Loving the sleek and light-weight design. I didn't go for the top end specs because I didn't think I need them thus I refuse to pay another 2k for things I didn't need.

Sony Cybershot, 8.1mp, light-weight with touch screen features. It is actually for my parents and I am keeping my devoted Canon Ixux 4mp. I am not complaining about my canon ixus, the camera never failed me once, still giving me clear pictures.

Unfortunately, my parents haven't mastered in using all the features that come with this new camera.

Met up with one of my buddies today, went to a mamak stall to have the authentic 'roti canai' and 'maggie mee goreng'. The food was so cheap, 2 roti, 1 mee and 2 drinks cost us only RM9.20, which is AU$3. Wahaha.. I LOVE good deals

As usual, we talked about our bfs, I believe there are problems in every relationship. She is worried about her bf's future, how are they heading; I am worried about 'our' future, where are we heading.

Often, we see our friends or people around us happily in-love and we think they are going to be happy forever. However, there could be some problems that we don't see; who knows what's happening behind closed doors?

It is within human nature that we only see what we want to see, we see the good sides of a matter and we would like to have it; totally ignoring the short coming, self asssure that we can be as good. Are we in denial again?

I admit I often compare my relationship to others, I know I shouldn't but I just couldnt help it. I often tell myself, I ain't perfect so I do not expect my bf to be the perfect person.

Sometimes, I see my friends being so in love and happy, I will then compare Matt to their bfs and think 'sigh... why can't he be that sweet and loving'. Then when my friends get upset with their bfs, I will think 'Wow, I am glad Matt isn't like that'.

I know I know! I am a total hypocrite because I am expecting Matt to be perfect. I am glad I know my weakness and things that I am doing wrong and learn to appreciate Matt more though he still likes to tease me and sees me getting angry. Pfft.. !

Whenever I am upset with Matt, I will share with my best friends, I am surprise they can always remind me the good things that Matt has done for me. I think it is also within the human nature to pick up negative things when we are upset and totally forgetting the good things that have happened.

Sometimes I do feel scare that our relationship may not last, I think the more I treasure it, the more afraid I would get. I love Matt, thus I believe that's why I am afraid to lose him. No, I am not afraid to admit that I love my bf. So if you feel this is too much, you can f*** off now.

I am trying to learn to compare less and ignore what others comment about my relationship because I know better than anyone else that Matt and I are putting in effort to make the relationship works and we try not to give up even when we feel like killing one another.

They wouldn't know what is happing to us behind our closed door!

I know this post is totally irrelevant to my KL trip, but heck, this is MY blog.
