Love out of pain

I sit tight, don't want to miss the show
I hang on, don't want to miss my prime
Cos time flies, when your heart meets mine

Stay a while, stroke her to sleep
Stay a little longer, watch her breathe
But tide rides far, watching his shadow
shrink and
desire distant

So I walk along
this deserted path

He peeks
He shadows me
Walks behind me
Walks with me

A smile
a laugh
a kiss
a touch

Fingers intertwined
Skin touch lips burn
Breath me in
Gaze deep
Hurt deeper

Dance with me
Dance while we can
Dance out of pain
Dance cos we must

Come a little closer
I'm in thoughts
I write you
I'm in love

You will be the sun
and I will be the sea
and love, the shoreline
where you and I meet

Let Him
sweep us away
to somewhere

to somewhere
only we know

Watch my back so I make sure
you are right behind me
as before
the night before

Dry my eyes so you won't know
Dry my eyes so I won't show
I know you are right behind me

And don't you let me go tonight
Don't let me go tonight
Just don't let me go tonight

Walking the surface of this town
with high heels above the ground
figures past
quick steps
wind slurs
scent smoke carbon
unpleasant uneasiness

Keep me safe
until the night
falls, till
My heart falls
My strength fails
My hope falters

We know them all
I know it all
Stay put and play along
Cos I'm looking for my friend

I dry my eyes
I dry my eyes
falling deeper by the hour
don't make me fall deeper now

Just let me go tonight

'Red carpet'

This was taken at the Pre annual dinner. I was the first of the 9 to be ready.
JW Marriot is fantabulously awesome :) The beds were ultra comfy and had a double door toilet.
We licked ourselves to sleep after a long night!

Red carpet?

So, I turned to the back to check you out.

Check the mock set-ups in the background!

Giuseppe Zanoti. Took hell lot of convincing to get mum to get this bag! Look how well made it is!


I just had to end this post with a pack of Cigars. I love how it juxtaposes everything I blog about.


Be yourself or be a unicorn

A Typo notebook from a wonderful friend as an early farewell gift! I 

I love my little Isaac. He's such a doll :D

And last but not least, my purchase of the day! 2 toned, brown hue with the signature Michael Kors logo at the side. Just the perfect combination.

That's all! more updates coming up soon!


Best Tom Yum in town; Best Nasi Lemak at home

As promised, I would post Kuala Lumpur's best Tom Yum, situated in a hideout, right smack in the city. Those who don't work in the city might not even notice or know where this place is situated. When I brought my colleagues and friends from Singapore to this alley, they gasped in unison, 'so INDIE'.

I secretly 'umchio'. Because, honestly I feel cool knowing the existence of this place!


FIRSTLY, it is only RM6. I have always been on a hunt for cheap and good food in the city. Since I'm a temporary staff in the office, I don't have the luxury to spend like how some of my colleagues do.

SECONDLY, it tastes so authentic with the richness of all Thai spices come together and saves you the trouble of travelling to Thailand for a taste of the wonderful Tom Yum.

THIRDLY, it is in Fahrenheit 88. Yes, in a mall in between Starhill Gallery and Lot 10. Take the escalator and go up to the second floor. There is a make-up store right in front of the escalator. Walk past the make-up store and walk all the way till you see a money changer on your right. Walk a couple more steps and you will see what looks like an emergency door on your left. Step in and you will be overwhelmed with the smell of food. They have a huge array of choices- Chicken rice, noodles, mixed rice etc. The first stall right at the entrance serves Tom Yum soup. You've got to try it.

Boss decided to give us a treat! So she brought us to Capriossa at Pavilion, on the same level as Food Republic. We had an amazing time there because not only was it cosy, and gave us the privacy to gossip, service was quick. To top it all off, the pizza was heavenly. We had salmon pizza and a free Hawaiian pizza.

Vivo pizza is one pizza place to look out for. If you are on a hunt for a nice and modern place for lunch or dinner, Vivo is the place you have to visit, be it for a quick meal or with a whole bunch of people. Every single dish is cooked to perfection as the recipe is sourced from a very profession chef (from Italy, correct me if I'm wrong) More pictures will be uploaded soon!

And so my kakak at home cooks the best nasi lemak in the whole wide world (I'm not kidding). Even better than Village Park at Uptown where all the ministers go to! Where else serves mouth-wattering food like this and offers the comfort and cleanliness of a home?

That's all! See you again!


The Differences Between Dating a Boy vs a Man

I found this incredibly fascinating write-up about the difference between dating a boy versus a man and it is written by

When I was in my early twenties, if a guy acted aloof, called back only sometimes and showed minimal interest, I would get hooked. You could say I was addicted to the bad boy/ unavailable boy/ player. I was drawn to what psychotherapist, Ken Page terms as “attractions of deprivation” – when we are drawn to people who embody the worst emotional characteristics of our parents. Basically, the theory explains that we are attracted to people who can wound us the same way we were wounded in our childhood, as our psyche tries to recreate the past void and save us by changing its ending.
“The child in us believes that if the original perpetrators — or their current replacements — finally change their minds, apologize, or make up for that terrible rupture of trust, we can escape from our prison of unworthiness. Our conscious self is drawn to the positive qualities we yearn for, but our unconscious draws us to the qualities which hurt us the most as children.”  - Psychology Today
So games used to work on me because 1) I had unresolved daddy issues and 2) At the tender age of 20, I was trying to figure out who I was and to top it off, I was ridden with insecurity and a low sense of self-worth.
But somewhere in between the passing of a decade, something changed.
I learned to love myself.  I became independent, confident, and started to value my self-worth. I went through hardships and heartbreaks and picked myself back up which built my strength and courage. Instead of relying on beauty as my source of empowerment, I focused on basing my empowerment on my intelligence, successes, values, contributions to the world and how I helped others. In a sense, I finally grew up. I went from being a girl to becoming a woman. And as a woman, you are attracted to very different things than you are as a girl.
A girl is attracted to boys. A woman is attracted to men. Now, this has nothing to do with the actual age of a person. I’m referring to maturity, life vision and stage of life. In fact, some people regardless of their age, will never really grow up.
If you are a girl (lack independence, are ruled by insecurity, lack self-respect, throw tantrums, have princess syndrome, don’t have strong values or boundaries and can’t hold yourself on your own) then expect that you will attract only boys. However, if you are a woman (independent, ambitious, knows your worth and value, has a strong moral compass, is considerate and an able communicator and doesn’t let insecurity dominate your psyche), then you should be dating a man. And if you can’t spot the difference just yet, here are some pointers.
1. A man knows what he wants, and goes for it. A boy may have somewhat of an idea, but not really. He doesn’t think too much about it, and even if he does, doesn’t exert much effort to get it. A boy is passive, a man is assertive.
2. A man plans for his future and is working towards building a foundation and infrastructure in order to have a family (at some point in his life).  A boy lives only in the moment and his plans are mostly around which bar he’s going to hit up on the weekend.
3. A man looks for a woman with intelligence, who is supportive, grounded and encompasses a shared set of values when choosing a partner. A boy cares mostly only for girls who are hot, wild and exciting.
4. A man knows a good woman when he meets one and will take initiative to get to know her. A boy may make an attempt if you’re lucky, but gives up before ever really trying.
5. A man has the courage to have uncomfortable conversations. He is honest with his intentions and lets people know where they stand. A boy avoids. He ignores confrontation or any serious talks about feelings. Instead of dealing with a situation, he runs away from it or creates drama or excuses to mask the fact he’s not that into you or a relationship.
6. A man knows when to invest in a woman and jump in with two feet. A boy is always “testing” – he doesn’t fully commit because he never knows if he is quite ready. But the truth is, because he is a boy, regardless of who he meets, he will never be ready due to the stage of life he is in.
7. A man knows how to have a good time and be social, but is often busy making strides in his career and building his life. A boy is getting crunk with his buddies at the bar every weekend.
8. A man takes the time to reflect on the type of man he wants to be, the example he wants to leave and the vision for his life. He has put thought into his values. A boy has not established his moral compass or values and consequently, is often inconsistent.
9. A man has integrity. He means what he says, and says what he means. He has follow through and actions his promises. And if he can’t he has the guts to tell you why. A boy makes promises but doesn’t follow through.
10. A man is afraid of rejection but will put himself out there anyway. A boy is afraid of rejection and acts passive so that his pride and ego won’t ever get too banged up.
Now, a lot of these differences require taking the time to know someone to figure out if the apple of your eye is indeed a man, or a mere boy. However, one of the quickest filters that you can notice from the beginning is this:
11. A boy plays games. A man doesn’t.
*To clarify, when I’m referring to “games” I mean mind games.

There will be a few times when you will be caught between having to decide whether your guy is acting like a boy or a man, but all you need really is to get a pen and paper and write boy/man down on every point.

Happy discovering! :D

Thinking about you

A tornado striked
right when you walked out
In this painted house
where you left your keys
locked to my heart

My eyes don't shed tears
but they run in streams
till they run out

When I'm thinking of you
I know
you still think of me
and it scares me
to think how hurt you are
how scarred you are
and the emotional trauma you had been living in

Do you think so far ahead?
Cause I've been thinking about forever
Do you think of me still?

And yes, I remember
How could I forget?
How you feel?
And though you were my first time
A new feeling
Will never grow old,
not in my soul
not in my spirit
not in my heart

We will go down this road
and part at the crossroads

Till the end of time
when we find love
once again
