A memorable night with Sandy

28 NOV 2009: If there’s a question on the hottest HK female singers on 80s and 90s, I’m sure Sandy Lam would be one of them. I wouldn’t say that I’m a great fan of her, but I do like most of her songs especially the 伤痕 album. Well, who doesn’t like that album right?

Thanks to my friend, Fredrick who called me last minute and gave me a complimentary pass to Sandy’s concert last Saturday. I said yes without second thought and reached Bukit Jalil Indoor stadium within 30 minutes. Furthermore, it caught me by surprise that it was a RM368 pass where the seat was pretty near to the stage.

Few minutes after I seated, K6 presented their new songs. I felt bad that I didn’t aware Danny Gaga was one of the dancers. Good performance though I didn’t pay much attention, LOL (Too many distraction from the crowd; like an annual gathering).

Sandy gave a spectacular performance throughout the night, with great selection of songs I would say. At least I knew most of the songs. I enjoyed very much over the 3 hours concert even though I was sitting alone. Great performance and songs, and wonderful crowd that I couldn’t keep my eyes from scanning around throughout the night.

P.S.: I’m now listening to Sandy’s songs in office, imagining I’m still in the concert.

Penang Bridge Marathon 2009

20 NOV 2009: The once a year Penang Bridge Marathon is around the corner again (22 Nov 2009). I will drive up tomorrow with some friends. We plan to start our journey from KL at 6:30am, stop by at Ipoh for dim sum and reach Penang at around 1-2pm for hotel check-in and to collect our goodies bad at Queens Bay Mall.

This is my 2nd time joining Penang Bridge Marathon where the 1st run was 3 years back for the fun run (10km). But I will run for 21km this time. A little nervous I am as didn’t really practice much for this run. Hopefully I can finish it within the time limit of 3.5 hours.

Anyone else join this event? I will be in Penang till Monday though, any recommendation for makan place? Hm..maybe I should ask TZ on this.

Novel vs. Movie

Friend recommended to read the novel (Time Travelers’ wife) saying novel is better than the movie itself. Therefore, I watched it and came out from the cinema with a smile on my face. I wondered why…

The storyline is pretty simple that the husband is a time traveler who couldn’t control when/where he would travel to. But he can only travel to major events pertaining to his own life. Nothing fancy about the character apart from starring by hunky Eric Bana and some topless/naked shots. However, I was deeply touched by the wife character starring by charming Rachel McAdams. The passion and belief that she has over the man she loved ever since they met when she was a little girl, has struck my head lightly. Felt like something that I’ve lost over the years, and wondered whether such unconditional love still exist nowadays? Another lovely fairy tales it must be, I thought of this while putting a smile to myself.

People tend to say that novel-based movie isn’t normally as good as the original novel. What do you think? Can you think of any great novel-based movie?

Fun Time with Cups and Cakes

12 NOV 2009: Wanted to bake egg tart initially, but cousin came over to my house over the weekend. So I thought it would be fun to try cupcakes instead. It didn’t take me long to prepare those ingredients like butter, flour, sugar, lemon etc with help of my cousin. Being a lazy her normally, I was surprised that she has been very attentive and helpful for the whole process.

Cousin was a little worried initially as it was our 1st time of baking cupcakes, but it turned out nicely on par with those selling by bakery..LOL. With a little creativity on the frosting, the cupcakes even looked more appearing

What do you think of the cupcakes, considering it was my 1st attempt of baking cupcakes?

Beautiful Nightmare

9 NOV 2009: As you might wonder that I have disappeared for week, I went to Bali for 5D4N holiday and it was awesome. It was a very nice place with fantastic culture, food and people.

Anyway, the weird thing was that I had a dream during my 2nd night there. You know, I don’t normally remember my dream after woke up unless it’s really that unforgettable.

The dream started where I was having family dinner. It was a nice dinner until my dad suddenly asked when will I get marry. As usual, I just ignore it but it wasn’t ended like just that this time around. All my brother and sisters who normally wouldn’t say a word about this were looking and pointing fingers at me, asking the same question repeatedly. Fortunately, I was frightened and woke up from the “nightmare”. What’s the indication of this? I’m reading a book about dreams but still, seems like the doctor couldn’t cure himself!!

Can you recall when was your most recently nightmare encounter? How bad was it?
