What is: MMO vs. MMORPG?

I’ll be honest with you. After putting in as many job applications as I could, I sat back and wondered what else could I do. Sure, I have also submitted a request to become a guest contributor on an online blog community (minus the pay because the community was new and they are still hiring…

Walking Down “Memory” Lane.

Drag and Drop Dragging and dropping files into a tiny piece of technology is often a pain in the ass to me because of the amount of storage that will eventually run out when too many things have been put into it. I have various storage devices ranging from 16MB to 128GB, with each and…

Healthy, Wealthy and Wise.

“Five more minutes, I promise… Zzz…” That’s what we always tell ourselves when our alarm rings at 9:00am in the morning, regardless of the day. That’s what we always say to the person who has been tasked to wake us up in the morning. And then you find yourself waking up at noon. OH NO!…

EPL 2016: Arsenal vs. Chelsea.

This season alone has seen Arsenal falling at the hands of Chelsea at both the Stamford Bridge and at the Emirates Stadium. And both times, Diego Costa had played a role in eliminating the Gunners, and had a hand in influencing players in getting sent off. Last year, the Brazilian-born Spanish striker was involved in…

A Peace of Mind.

Remember the lyrics: Silence is golden, but my eyes still see. Silence is golden, golden, but my eyes still see. Originally co-written by Bob Gaudio (of the American rock band, The Four Seasons) and Bob Crewe, the song was later covered by English band The Tremeloes in 1967 and Swedish singer Jim Jidhed in 1989….

Survival of the Fittest.

As many Malaysians would have known by now, times have soured and the economy is changing. The current situation of our ringgit has been deteriorating for many months now, the latest currency status puts US$1 against RM4.38. And that, my friends, is not a pretty sight. The economic situation is also changing, sadly, not for…

The “Other” Neighbours.

And no, I don’t mean the neighbours on your left, nor your right. I wasn’t referring to the neighbours opposite you or above you either. Let me ask you something, though. Do you sometimes feel like you’re being watched? Or that you’re not alone in the house or room? Do you sometimes wonder why you’re…

The Waiting Game.

Government offices and their employees, mostly those working in the customer service departments, often bear the brunt of irate and impatient customers and are subjected to verbal abuse. They are almost always on the receiving end of a telephone call with a customer whose product never arrived. Why do we subject these poor individuals to…

Book Review: Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand.

A lot has happened over the past week, with yours truly putting pen to paper and signing the release of my employment and termination of my contract at my current job. That was no easy feat (mentally and emotionally, that is). Not that I wanted it to happen, though. I was clearly and very much…

British Superstars Dead at 69.

When I finally heard the news… I thought, what are the odds? Two of the greatest superstars dead at 69 years old, both from cancer. David Bowie succumbed to liver cancer at 69 years old. Alan Rickman succumbed to cancer, also at 69 years old. David Bowie, as Ziggy Stardust: The Man and the Musician….

EPL 2015: Liverpool vs. Arsenal.

In typical Gunner fashion, the match between Arsenal and Liverpool ended in a draw. A 3-3 draw. While I’m thankful it wasn’t a goalless draw, as a fan, I was hoping and praying it was a win instead. Then again, which fan wouldn’t want their club to win? For one, Arsenal are on course to…

It’s ‘Nut’hing Short of Pure Bliss.

I finally did myself a favour and persuaded my husband to take us to this neat little artisan ice cream shoppe in SS15, Subang Jaya called ‘Sangkaya’. It can be found on the same lane as the DirectD Retail & Wholesale physical stores, and along the same row as the Fatbaby Ice Cream parlour too….

Slurpin’ It Up in Johor Bahru.

One highlight of my weekend in Johor Bahru, or fondly known as JB by the locals, was no doubt my cousin’s wedding. The spell-binding event had been meticulously decked out in a sea of purple, white and blue, and was planned and organised by my cousin alone, along with her then-fiance (now husband) and their…

Heads Up, Readers!

Hi guys, I just want to let you know that I won’t be blogging from Friday, 8 January 2016 to Sunday, 10 January 2016. My cousin is getting married in her hometown and I will be attending her wedding there. So I won’t be able to upload any posts on these days. I will be…

Book Review: A Summer Affair.

First, I’d like to extend my gratitude and relief for the introduction of Canva into my blogging life. With this free content software tool, I can now create and design just about anything for my blog. And never again do I have to “borrow” images from other websites. Though, I still do that from time…

I’d Say, You’re Already Halfway There!

As a child, you would have learnt the names of the seven days in a week in your first English class. As you grew older, you learnt that some calendars start their week on Sundays while other calendars start on Mondays. That was then. Nowadays, the seven days of the week are constantly being referenced…

New Year, New Challenges.

I’m sure many of you have Tumblr and/or Pinterest accounts at some point in your life, but would you have stumbled upon the infographics above for a reading challenge? I saw this on Pinterest but more often than not, I see it on Tumblr. I’ve never taken up the challenge as I’m not interested in…

The Right Plants to Beat the Bloat.

Today marks the fourth day of the first month of the new year. How was your New Year celebration? Did you party until the cows come home, and then party some more with the cows? Or did you have a small gathering with your family and close friends, stayed indoors and watched the fireworks in…

EPL 2015: Arsenal vs. Newcastle.

It took a defender to give Arsenal a win in last night’s match against Newcastle United. It took just one goal for all three points and move the club two points clear of Leicester City at the top of the Premier League table. It took a foreign player by the name of Laurent Koscielny of…

Word.

OMG. Yes, OMG. Short for ‘Oh, My God!’, this word was initially made popular by Lord Fisher in his 1917 letter (below, photo by The Smithsonian Mag) addressed to Winston Churchill. 2016 is literally just around the corner, waiting to burst open its floodgates for us in roughly 12 hours to go, so let’s welcome…
