True? *nods*

Work today officially started at only 4pm.

Meetings in the morning, lunch, team meeting at coffee bean @ Chinatown Point (Our ac broke down! gasps!) and got back at about 4pm. That was when I realize it is almost impossible to finish that much work. I sulked.

Fashion: Booties

Recently, I finally bought my first pair of Booties. Nothing too fancy, something black (haha, as usual) and may I quote my bestfriend, "with a hell load of holes. :D

I'm not adventurous with my choice of shoes but that pair's so comfortable and yes, it was calling for me. I don't know what is it about women and shoes - you don't find them, they find you. And allow me to humbly comment, it's like love.

Booties are so hot this season. You see it on almost every runway. Why? Because they can be worn for any season! But the best part about them is that they're so easy to wear, because their streamlined design means you could pair them with everything from jeans to skirts and pants to dresses.

They've got the ones with open toes, with bows, in suede and even in lace. Absolutely sexy. But of course, we're spoilt for choice. There are actually no tips on how to wear them. You can't possibly wear them wrong. Well, just be careful with one thing - Girls who are vertically challenged, like yours truly, you need to make sure you don't wear them with outfits that shorten your legs or look stubby. Go with jeans or a mini skirt. You can never go wrong with that combination.

Anyway, before I turn in for the night, here are some booties for you girls to lust on....






Movie Picks: My Sister's Keeper

My Sister's Keeper Pictures, Images and Photos

"You don't love someone because they're perfect. You love them in spite of the fact that they're not." - Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper.

I remember when I first read the book, I knew from the first few pages, I was going to feel extremely sad about life and it was almost definite that I'd cry; which was why I walked into the theatre prepared with kleenex.

Anyway, the plot in a nutshell: Anna Ftizgerald was born to save her sister, Kate's life. Kate was diagnose with Leukemia, a very rare cancer disease and the doctor decided that maybe if her parents gave birth to another sibling, Kate might have a chance to live. This was how Anna came about. After 11 years, Anna decided that she couldn't do it anymore (trust me, there were complications...), so she filed for medical emancipation against her parents.

I've read reviews and saw clips of the movie before watching it. And also read an interview 8days did with Cameron Diaz last week. (She looks amazing on the cover, btw!) And I must comment, for once, Diaz is not making you laugh. She is making you cry. She must have not slept for days for the show to get those crazy eye bags!

Sorry, I digress. In the interview, Cameron made a very interesting statement which even myself couldn't have agreed more, "I think that we're all warriors. The passion that we have is the thing that feeds our ability to be a warrior." It is true. Too darn true. Everyone in the Fitzgerald family is constantly fighting. Fight against their fears. Fear of losing someone close, fear of death, fear of giving up... But being as a family, they've learned to sacrifice for one another to keep the family from falling apart. They're warriors. True warriors.

Sofia Vassilieva, who acted as sickly Kate, is an upcoming rising star. She does not possess sweet, cute looks but she has a certain charm in her that makes her shine throughout the movie. I look forward to her future gigs. Abigail Breslin is as usual, being at her best in every film she decides to partake. From "Little Miss Sunshine", "Definitely Maybe", to "No Reservation", Breslin is a young starlet I find hard to resist. She's like an adult trapped in a young child's body and at the same time looking as cute as a button.

Of course, the Movie is nothing like the book because the book is 100 times sadder. But at least the movie followed very closely to the book without changing much details. Readers who enjoyed the book will most likely enjoy the movie. I'm not going to spoil it for you because I want you to watch it and tell me how you feel about it.

The movie is definitely not a feel-good movie. I teared so much, I feel embarrassed. However, go watch the movie and you'll realize how blessed you are sitting right where you are munching on that popcorn where there are many other people who's suffering and wondering when's their last day of sunshine. Oh yeah, bring your kleenex, you will need them.

Girls and Shopping *beams!*

.. I know, right?


Haha, I get very excited when I see an interesting article.

Read it here:

Yes, you're reading it right. This is a Men's guide to shopping with their girlfriends! I find it absurdly interesting because do men really need such a guide? Is shopping with your girlfriends such a pain you actually need a 'Dummies guide' to get yourself through it? Ha, interesting. Very much.

Here's my take on shopping with your girlfriends, fellas. So listen up.

Trust me, you don't need a guide or steps to please your girl. Just understand this very important point: Girls look good for boys. Your girlfriend wants to look good for you. She can have 10001 excuses to buy a new pair of shoes, a new bag or a new dress.. but ultimately, she WANTS you to think she looks good enough for you. Yes boys, it is that simple.

If you try to go through the process with a almost-bitter smile, giving not-even-trying comments like - 'Yeah, it's nice", you're not going to make it out alive. This is how a girl's mind work: If you don't care, she gets upset at you for not caring because she feels she's doing all of these for you. She wouldn't want to put you through this torture, but she feels because she's doing it all for you, you should have a say! So, practice to have a say, have an opinion. We don't see you having a problem with opinions about the latest hike in petrol prices, crap food they serve in the hawkers near your place..

If you can comment on how tight an ass this hot babe in a short mini skirt who just walked by, I'm sure you can afford to give your 2 cents on how your girlfriend look in that dress. Or even 1 cent.

I'll probably be writing about booties in my next update. Maybe tonight!

Have a good weekend!

PS: LC made me say he's has master the art of shopping with women. Girls, what are you waiting for?

Music: Chris Brown - Crawl

Yes, I'm home on a friday night (again), blogging.

I don't know if it's pure coincidence that both Riri and Chris Brown released their new singles for their upcoming albums at the same time but it sure is amusing. Like the both of them are trying to say something.

Chris Brown's latest single, "Crawl", is his usual ballad number. Sounds a little bit like 'No Air' (duet with Jordin Sparks) to me. Sounds a little desperate to me too. No doubt his vocal adlibs at the end was pretty good but still, nay.. Chris Brown's gotta try a little harder to get anymore brownie points from me. The score board right now says a -10000000000.

I'm looking forward to his new album, though I can almost imagine most of his ballads will be trying to tell his fans how apologetic he is about the whole situation.. blah blah blah..

Check out 'Crawl' here -

Music: Rihanna, The wait is Ova

Riri surprises me, over and over.

First, she cut off her long hair to a short pixie crop. Next, she allowed boyfriend Chris Brown to hit her, sued him and then forgave him. This time round, her latest single, "Russian Roulette" exudes a dark and depressing vibe (looks a little SM to me too..). Well, we all know how Russian Roulette is played. Somebody gets hurt, somebody dies...


I'm a little excited for her brand new album, "The Wait is Ova". C'mon, Riri, why are we waaaaiting?

.. Really I am.

Few things I've done terribly wrong this week:

1. Bought my mom an mp3 for her 51st birthday
2. Bought my mom an mp3 knowing she wouldn't know how to fucking use it
3. Bought my mom an mp3 knowing I'd be the one to help her put songs in
4. Bought my mom an mp3, ripping 1 of her CDs, and now the CD's stuck in my new MAC

Oh baby, I'm so sorry. :(
I will bring you to Dr. Azhar tomorrow and he will fix you, ok?

Dear Mom,

You've done it this time! I'm finding it hard to forgive you!
I'm going to throw a bitch fit if my baby doesn't get that metal out of her body!

Your daughter.

Upcoming Movies: New york, I love you


There are so many great movies coming this fall. And I personally can't wait for this one.


Movie Picks: Julie & Julia

It was a last minute decision, Lala and I decided to go a late night Movie (Sarah joined us too). Lala get to pick the venue and I get to pick the Movie. My mind was fixed on watching "Julie & Julia".


Right after Devil's wear Prada, Meryl Streep still surprises me every time I see her on the big screen. She never fails to make her audience laugh, cry and think. This time as Julia, Streep is a huge bundle of joy. I know, I know - it is hard to imagine her that way but she totally is. She was extremely theatrical in this one, it was a little hard to watch at the beginning because she was laughing too much (and often) and so easily excitable - hardly even how I imagined her to be; but as we watched on, she becomes so irritatingly adorable.. she grows on you. And without surprises, Streep has outdone herself. Again.

Both Streep and Adams were 2 women in different times and place, sharing many similarities they're facing in their lives. They both needed something to do. Though, Adams being in a more recent era, needed something to do with her mundane and almost failing life. Both started a regime with cooking. Cooking opened up both their eyes and heart to things they could have never encountered. Like what they said, "The first step is always difficult".

However both of them were fearless women with so much determination to make it happen. And they did.

Like most things, we all need courage (a lot of it, in fact) to make something that seemed impossible to master, happen. So, with a little love, faith and some imagination, anything is possible. I enjoyed how I was so engaged in both their lives (felt like I was time-traveling every 5 minutes!) and feasting my eyes with french delicacies. Sometimes the movies just make everything seem so easy.

I say, follow your heart... Make the best out of your life. Bon appétit!
