A couple of weeks ago, my friend helped me to buy a bag which she was getting one herself. It was 60% off and a pretty good deal I must say. When I got the bag and keep it in my room, I realized that I have many bags, some of which I haven’t used yet. Bad, bad, bad. I laid some of the bags out and took a photo. Notice that I just wrote ‘some’? Yup…still many more inside a big box and some in my closet. Bad, bad, bad.
This is where I keep some of the bags- on an unused chair.
I bought this bag organizer from Daiso. It can hold about 9 bags.
I really must stop buying. Feel guilty for spending so much on them. I really don’t need so many bags.
Two Christmases ago, I asked Santa for this …….
My wish was granted and I was happily doing 8 to 10 km on this baby 5 days a week. My weight didn’t go down despite this exercise but my legs and calves are firmer. It was pretty boring to exercise on a stationary bike. An excuse? Haha..
Then I started running these few months. Actually I prefer running to sitting on the bike because I get to go out of the house So what happened to my exercising bike?
Now, my bike still in my bedroom, for me to throw clothes on. My training bike is now an expensive clothes hanger
are all the “you-friend-me-i-don’t-friend-you-because-you-are-not-a-real-friend-and-you-are-using-me-for-favours” or you-don’t-friend-me-because-you-get-mad-that-i-don’t-have-time-for-you or i-friend-you-you-don’t-friend-me-because-you-are-jealous-of-me crap. Please, don’t think too much. Things are not what you think they are. Don’t flatter yourself, ok. To me, it’s really simple. If you can get along well with someone, then cherish it. If not, just get over it and MOVE ON. I think you will be happier if you do that. There is no need to go on and on about this. Don’t hold grudges. Enough drama already. The only dramas I am interested in are TVB dramas
I was blog-hopping last night and came upon a “Something True About Yourself” post by one of my favourite bloggers. Thought I’ll borrow the idea from her and do one too. Below are something true about me :
* I am starting to get pigmentation on my face….due to age perhaps?
* I am a worry-wart!
* I have oily hair and there is nothing much I can do about it. I inherited this genes from my dad.
* I suck at maths (that’s why I’m sending Ashley to mental maths)
* I’m scared of walking on bridges. I have this fear of falling.
* I am very impatient.
* I get p*ssed when I hear people brag.
* I don’t know how to accessorize with belts.
* I get super cranky when my house is in a mess (which is like all the time).
Would you like to share something true about yourself? It can be anything, big or small, something that makes you happy or otherwise
Have a great weekend peeps!

Sorry for not updating my blog more often. I have sort of lost my blogging mojo. I have used free article writing services which help me when I have a writers block. It started slipping away at the end of last year. I seem to be without words or inspiration to blog anymore. I am also not concern whether I am making $$ or not with my blogs Unlike last year or the previous years where I would be chasing after advertisers, waiting in front of the computer to grab paid posts, logging into my accounts to check for work, hope that my blogs have ranks, etc. Things are changing and that is good. I haven’t given up on blogging yet. I’ll still blog but not so frequently I guess Been pretty busy with lots of other things … good things. The Year of the Water Dragon is going to be a great year for us. I just know it In the meantime, if you have seen my mojo, please bring it back to me.

and I have yet to get these ….
Lin Kao (sticky rice cake)
am thinking of getting the Lucky Bamboo too
waiting for some unique Angpow packets (Red Packets) from the banks so that I can fill them with money
So much to do, so little time ……
Thank God It’s Friday already! This week is the 2nd week of the school holidays. I still haven’t done much with Ashley There are many things on my list that I would like to do this holiday like starting her on swimming lessons, doing crafts with her, taking her on a holiday, going on road trips, decorating for Xmas, etc. Blogging has been slow too. So much to do, so little done. I guess I am getting lazy and I think I am losing my mojo. I need to get everything back in gear soon! Have a nice weekend peeps!

Just a thought. Don’t you find it annoying when people brag about themselves? I have met people who boast about their achievements, their kids’ achievements, their new huge flat screen lcd tvs, the new car in their driveway, the vacation they took, how much they spent on material stuff, announced to everyone that their mortgage has been paid off, or what they have done for others. The list goes on. Tooting your own trumpet so loudly that no one else can hear themselves is just awful. I try to steer clear of people like that.
Then they are those who love to put a price tag on everything. There is a couple I know who do not fail to inform their friends that they have just spent $$ shopping for clothes, $$ for presents and etc. It has become so bad that friends are avoiding them. Worse is that their only son, a 10 year old, is beginning to sound like his parents. Many of us were taught from childhood that it is not nice to show off, brag or boast about yourself.
Braggarts are everywhere. I just wonder why they brag? Is it because they are insecure so bragging make them feel good about themselves? Or do they want people to think well of them?
How do you feel about people who brag? Do you speak up and silence them, act that you don’t care or do you tactfully change the subject when they start going into their bragging mode?

Last Friday, I needed to call AirAsia regarding a mistake on the name of one of the passengers. It was not a pleasant day for me. In case you do not know, you cannot amend the name of the passengers on their website. However, if you need to change the flight bookings, i.e. the date and time of the flight, you may do so online. There is no other way to contact their Customer Support except to call their Premium line which cost RM1.95 per minute.
After spending close to RM100 on phone calls (because I was put on hold for a long time), talking to the Customer Support who promised to amend the passenger’s name, it was not done at all. Lesson learned :
* Always double check the online flight bookings before you click OK.
* It is better to go to AirAsia’s sales office at KL Sentral to do the necessary changes than calling the Premium Line.
Anyway, I am so glad that he managed to get it done. If not, I think I won’t be able to sleep well and may need to get over the counter sleep aids.
During Chinese New Year, I like to buy some CNY decor for my house. I like to get Mystic Knots to decorate my porch and smaller ones to hang on the doors of my home. There is a slight problem hence, the reason for this post. My MIL also likes to buy stuff to decorate my home. When she sees me buying something, she’ll get something too. For example, I bought a butterfly knot to hang outside my home. When she saw what I did, she went out and bought a huge knot with a Chinese word for me to place outside my home. She said my butterfly knot is too small. Just so you know, we don’t have the same tastes. We are like night and day. This is just one of the things she bought. Anyway, we have more things in the house now because of this. All I can do is……
I’ve been told that when I take a deep breath and chant Om, it causes a very calmful effect. It helps to draw my attention away from other tensions in my mind.
