Malaysian Airlines vs Air Asia

I have just booked my ticket back to Malaysia in Jan next year, need to go back for Chinese New Year so that my parents will not be too lonely. Since I moved to Perth, I have missed KL CNY twice, and my mom hated celebrating CNY without me. So now, I always try my best to arrange my annual leave around CNY.

Anyway... so Air Asia started to fly to Perth and I have heard good and bad reviews about them. I am pretty skeptical to be honest because my parents and sister had terrible experience with Air Asia when they went to Macau early this year. However, Karen assured me that Air Asia is fine.

I did some research, MAS is going to charge me $1250.00 for a economy return flight while Air Asia is only charging $583. So, Air Asia fare is definitely a lot lower and I decided to give me a shot.

To be on the safe side, I booked the 'business' class, which cost me $740. I just want to make sure that I don't suffer freaking 5 hours on the plane. I wouldn't mind being uncomfortable for 1 hour, but 5 hours is difinitely a NO NO. So this is the 'business' class seats, lookds pretty good, hope they are as good as they look.

Then, I saw an ad on the web 'Fly from KL to Brisbane from RM149'. I got excited! I thought, hey maybe I can fly to Brisbane from KL for a short holiday there then fly back to Perth. So I went to check it out, I got even more excited when I saw similar offer to fly from KL to Perth!!!!

So that means my parents can come to visit me at very very low fare, and I can pay for them if that's the case. So..... there you go, i did a quick search and tada!

WTH...... RM149 + RM149 + fucking tax = RM1507.00.

OK, it is not that expensive if I convert it to Aust currency but to someone who is earning normal wage in RM, it is still a significant amount.

I seriously thought it would be something like RM700 per return ticket ><. Guess I was too naive.

Lazy Saturday

UPDATE: Today turned out to be pretty productive actually. I studied, cleaned my car, spent 30 mins on Wii Fit, cleaned out my make up tray and also my jewellery. Now I need another box to keep the jewellery and man... I have to revamp most of my jewellery. Time to go back to jewellery making I guess.

Today is a super lazy Saturday for me. Woke up at 9am, then 10:30am and then finally got out of bed at 11:30am, which was totally out of my normal routine, waking up at 9am on weekends. Oh well, I went to bed only at 2am this morning, after 4.5 hours of mahjong and $35 losses.

I was bored last night (AGAIN!) so I decided to make another yogurt cake, just to use up all the thickened cream I have in the fridge. I promised I will post the recipe up on my food blog but I am just trying to adjust the ingredients and the size of the pan that I use to get the best result.

So after waking up this morning, I decided to make somehting for brunch. Having my diet plan in mind, I had a soft-boiled egg with one slice of toast.

Then I did my washing...... beautiful day today.... but I just wanted to rot at home.

So what's my plan for today? Is time to catch up with my studies and definitely watch all the movies that Matt downloaded for me and I want to watch Kung Fu Panda AGAIN!!! Watching Sex and The City as I type this entry :)

Alright, I know this is a super boring post... :p

I am in one of those mood again that got me rather depressed. Matt is back at work so I am staying in alone tonight with Mylo, my loyal companion though he seems more depressed than me most of the time. Feel so lonely suddenly without Matt jumping, yelling, cheering, dancing (recently he always show me his robot dance that never fails to make me laugh) in front of me.

To cut back on mobile phone charges, we agreed to email one another whenever Matt is at work so he only has to call me once a day when he is off duty. Works pretty good so far. Then I realised, bugger my phone is absolutely quiet without him smsing me.

Does that mean I am lifeless? I mean when I was single, my phone rang all the time with sms’s and calls, with guys asking me out all the time. Now! ZzzzzzZZZzz. I know it could be the fact that I have changed my mobile# and I only gave the new number to close friends and family. Hey, I do not mean that I want to go dating with other guys now. I am totally not interested besides my botak (he shaved his head AGAIN!). I didn’t give my number to any business contacts at all (even my ex-boss), call me stupid but I am just so sick of the ‘business’ social circle that I had last time.

And of course, those guys who tried to ask me out do not have my new number at all. I am a good gf, pfft! Or.. should I?

But it definitely feels good when there are guys trying to ask me out and hit on me in public places. /Grin.

Kung Fu Panda

I LOVE this movie, or should I say cartoon.. hehe. This cartoon is so funny that there wasn't a dull moment. Ermm..except a short conversation that almost put Matt to sleep. Well, we were watching it on the bed before we went to sleep, so I didn't blame him.

The panda was sooo adorable, his tummy is so round, and his butt! Love the section where the master trained him using FOOD! Hahaha...

Please go to watch this movie if you haven't seen it. Highly recommended!

Matt: We have to start planning our trip to Sg. I was thinking of going to Sentosa for the day? We didn't go there the last time.

Jane: Oh yea, that will be nice. I heard that place had some upgrades, I need to check.

Matt: Yea, you want to bring your bather along and we can have a swim there?

Jane: Er........ (Staring at my stomach)

Matt: *Grin


Sex and The City

(Only read this post if you have seen Sex and The City, else this will be a super boring post)

I LOVE the movie, I love it so much that I watched it twice at the cinema alone. (I am a wierdo that enjoys watching movie by myself).

I believe every Sex and The City fan would enjoy the movie as much as I did. The movie did give the drama a good wrap up and ending, an ending that every Sex and The City fan is happy to see. Believe it or not, this movie did teach me a lot of things.

I came across a blogger who mentioned she couldn't understand why would Carrie forgive Big for leaving her right before the wedding after only 6 months. When I was watching the movie, I felt the same thing. And how could Miranda forgive Steve for cheating?

However, we should never judge one's relationship with someone. Carrie and Big been together for over 10 years, things that they been through could not be wiped off just like that. Love is not Mathematics, 1 + 1 may not be 2. So we may never understand why did Miranda forgive Steve, only they know why, but does it matter? They are happy....

Then Samantha asked "Does loving a person mean you mention his name 50 times a day, more than you mention yours?" "Does loving a person mean his needs come before yours?".

I thought about the questions, I do mention Matt a lot in front of my friends and colleagues (not 50 times a day for sure) and I always care for his needs, sometimes I may even put his needs before mine. Is that stupid? You may think I am, but I am happy to do that. Why judge me when I am doing something I enjoy?

Then you may ask me, does Matt put my needs before his. Yes and No..... depends on the needs I have. But Matt will let me do whatever I want as long as I am happy. So you see, 2 happy souls here, it doesn't matter who comes first, how we 'run' this relationship; there are no rules, as long as every stakeholder is happy. We do not have to report to anyone why we do this or that... and one should never judged us.

In the movie, Samantha loves Smith but she was not happy. She was not happy that his needs come first, she was upset that she was no longer who she was; and her misery was affecting Smith as well, so she left. I admired her courage for walking away from the one she loved for 5 years. She is a good example of "Be happy, life's too short".

Then Miranda forgave Steve in the end. Before she forgave him, they had a discussion with the marriage counsellor. Steve said he thought marriage was about 2 persons be together for the good and worst. They had the good times and Steve created the worst incident........

When Matt and I were going through a pretty rough patch, I said the exact line to Matt. I told him the day I said YES to be hig gf, I have made up my mind that I would be with him through the good and bad times, I wasn't going to walk away when the road gets rocky. Let's just say, after that incident and the 'talk', our relationship has gone to another level and we are still very happy together.

What I am trying to say is, when it comes to LOVE, there are no set rules. Outsiders will always judge us, there is nothing we can do but prove to them that we are truly happy.

Once in a while, I will crave for books. I will buy a few books at once from book store or ebay. Then I will take my time to read them through.

I am currently on a books shopping spree again, looking for some books to read. Matt bought me 'Bringing Down The House' the real story behind the movie '21', about cards counting and such. I did not finish the book because I was not interested in cards counting really, and after I read how they count the cards, that's about it I guess? Cause that was the most important thing in the whole story?

I always go for books that are either inspiring or entertaining, in a nutshell, books that make me think and think about my life or make me laugh and laugh.

I enjoy reading Marian Keys book, currently looking at buying one of her bestsellers, 'Sushi for Beginners'. I was browsing and came across another book called 'Love the One You're With', seems very interesting. Unfortunately, it is very new thus ebay doesn't have this book on sale yet :(.

I have a problem now, I don't have space to keep my collection ><

Wii Fit

Last year, Matt bought a Wii Fit because I was so crazy over it. Then my excitement and enthusiasm died down a lot because the games became very boring and they were all the same.

Then Wii Fit was released and I was lucky enough, I managed to grab the second last Wii Fit in store (EB Games in Carousel). I was suprised to see Wii Fit is pretty accurate when it comes to measuring our weights, determining our postures and such.
According to Wii Fit, my BMI is ideal but I can lose another 5kg ( o.O ) to reach the perfect BMI of 22. Yea, tell me about it. Now, Matt will remind me to use the Wii Fit everyday to reach my goal weight.

I believe I can drop 5 kg if I use it religiously because my muscle are so sore now after a few sessions with Wii Fit, especially the Yoga and Muscle Workouts. :p

Study AGAIN....

I haven't mentioned, but I was recently promoted and now taking over the whole branch administration and accounting. My workload has increased tremendously but definitely makes my days go quicker. :)

Part of my promotion includes an accounting certificate course through TAFE. The course has just started and I have been busy studying. My next Feb pay review will depend on how well I do in this course. It is a 2 year course but I am expected to complete it within 10 months o.O.

Wish me luck!

New hair cut

New hair cut I got in late April. Somehow, it wasn't 'new' because it is pretty similar to my old hair style (before my perm hair style). Just that this hair is a better cut (I reckon).


Oh well, at least it is something different from the curls.
