Cactus for Your Desk.

I’ve always wanted to add some colour to my work station, perhaps a dash of green or a collaboration of soft pastel colours that are gentle to my eyes after spending hours staring at the harsh light of the laptop screen. But I never know what type of plants are suitable for the office and…

Coffee Variants, Personal Opinions.

Many independent cafes have been mushrooming all over Klang Valley and in other popular cities such as Malacca, Johor Bahru, Ipoh and Penang. These cafes provide more than just specially-brewed coffee, from the ambience and atmosphere to the wide selection of pastries, cakes and other food-based items on their menus. While each cafe is unique…

The Voice in Your Head.

Do you ever find yourself standing in an aisle of a supermarket, wondering what to buy? If you have a shopping list, you’re safe. But if you decide to do your grocery shopping without a list, chances are you will end up buying out the whole supermarket. Does that ever happen to you? No? Perhaps…

An Icy Sensation.

Venue: Sushi Tei @ Tropicana City Mall. Order: Real ice grape dessert. Price: RM9.80 A delightful dish of grapes and ice in the shape of little balls. Twelve real grapey flavoured ice balls that sent positively chilling sensations up my head and down my throat. It was so good, and rather worth the money that…

Time to Converse.

For many years since learning of its existence in Malaysia, I’ve tried (and failed on many attempts) to convince my mum that Converse is wearable by both men and women. To my mum, the design and colours look very much ‘male’ (although I’m not so sure how she got to that conclusion, though, mothers being…

Adrenaline Rush.

We all need some excitement in our lives, don’t we? We all need to have some adrenaline pumping in our veins to feel powerful. We all need to take risks once in awhile to further excite our lives. After all, what’s the point of living if there isn’t anything to look forward to? But when…

My Macabre Thursday.

*not inserting any images or photos of anything macabre because I tried to Google for some and it freaked the hell out of me!* Sometimes, the Internet can do funny things to you. One minute, you’re surfing through the chains of the World Wide Web, doing your work. And the next minute, you find yourself…

Currently Reading.

It was all the rage, all the hype that was trending on Tumblr. I followed a few voracious book readers and it kept popping up on my Tumblr feed. Until one day, I could take no more of scrolling through my feed, and I downloaded the e-book version for my Kindle 5. ‘All The Bright…

My Husband: The Kleptomanic

Walk into any clinic, post office, or government office and you will find a pen provided for the convenience of their patients or customers. These pens are usually attached to a mass of rubber bands tied at each end to form a long thread to secure the pens to a clipboard or a holder which…

For God’s Sake!

Before I launch into a summarised version of my opinions on religion, I’d like to leave a disclaimer that what you will read here are basically just that: my personal opinions. Staunch religious followers can rest assured that I won’t be touching on sensitive issues on specific denominations. It only covers a discussion I had…

Festive Cheer: Going Home for Raya

Many people will be taking to the road and driving back to their hometowns this week. The reason for this festive cheer is Hari Raya on Friday, 17 July 2015, and Saturday, 18 July 2015. The highways will be clogged with vehicles going up north, down south, and anywhere in between to enjoy the off-work…

A Hot and Spicy Affair

Copa American 2015: Chile vs. Argentina It was definitely a Chilean affair. Chile held on for dear life throughout the entire competition right until the final match against Argentina. They were probably the least expected country to win the cup, especially since Argentina had always been favourites to lift the trophy. But Chile “made history…

Technology at Your Fingertips

That was then. Once upon a time, there lived a girl in a modest terrace home where she grew up and was constantly surrounded by books, words and pages. Books have always been my constant companions for a long time now. I usually wind down after a hectic day at work with a chapter or…
