Menara 238

 You are too reserve Shida… damn! I’m indeed reserve to stranger…

------------------------------

We went to Raya open house at Menara 238. I’m MADE to go… I’m so regretting for not fasting today… it’s not that I don’t fancy those fancy and free foods... it just that I’m dress too casually… I’m more like going to a movie instead of to office… definitely can’t do fishing today…huh!

Everyone there was in their best form… with baju kurung and baju melayu… ME? Just pretend to not to look awkward…

-----------------------------

Zaleha: You are from where?
Me: Erm, we are from such & such…
Zaleha: So, are you are one of the client?
Me: No. I’m a social escort… We are consultant…
Zaleha: What you guys do then?
Me: I'm escorting those who can write me a cheque… we did some liquidation work for them…

It was indeed the first and only so called business contact I made so far… I think I did quite well BUT

My boss who was just next to me might think that I need to open up a bit… flashing back the conversation I had with Zaleha, it did look like an interview session… LOL! Zaleha is a Financial Controller for a public company… but, she was kind enough to say hi to me…

I don’t want to say wrong words to a wrong person… those people I met during my ‘escorting’ session are not nobody. They are people with lots in their hands. The big fish they call. There is this guy sharing a table with us. Luckily I don’t say a word to him while my boss chatting with another guy. He is a partner of some international audit firm. Gosh… he doesn’t look like one!

I just don’t know what to say to these corporate people… So, Mr.such & such, do you know that Paramore is coming to town? Or do you have a handsome & eligible son? LOL!


Menara 238… it’s previously known as Menara Marinara… but why 238? The address explains why… quite unusual name i guest...

---------------------

Next time if I ever have to do this ‘escorting’ session again, I should do what those corporate people do… pass the business card (to everyone, cause I have a lots)… and read theirs. Start with asking things about their job or company.  Hopefully the next time is not so soon.

p/s: there are plenty fish in the sea… too bad, I forget to bring the bait today.

it all started with that tauke ice cream...

Back then when I was in primary school, I love Fridays… because my two friends and me would lepak at our neighbor’s bench and wait for the ice cream van… the uncle was so damn nice…  Initially, we bought ice cream from him… a regular customer I might said. Then, he started gave discount to us… and gave us ice cream we never could bought with our allowances. So damn heaven… the fun ended on the last day I wear my primary school uniform… my ice cream partners and me didn’t really lepak together then…

So,I used to tell my friend that I want to marry an ice cream tauke… so I can eat as much ice cream as I want… 
then; I want to marry chocolate tauke. For I’m so mad with chocolate. 

Then I think I should married to KFC tauke. Because I love their Kolenel’s burger so damn much… 

then, I should marry potatoes tauke, Beemer tauke, Tiffany tauke and ……

Then, because I quite love our mamak’s curry, my colleague told me I should marry the mamak’s son.

I guest that the reason why I haven’t met my tauke yet. Too many tauke that I wish for…

I wonder if the uncle is still around... how is he doing now... the one and only 'my ice cream uncle...'

What inside my Birkin?

Nothing much... Just another Birkin…

I just envy this one and only Mrs.Beckham because she has lots of Birkin… sob... sob… sob…


Ladies, click on the link on more info about Hermes Birkin…. Something for the eyes I guest!

Put aside Mrs.Beckham and Birkin, here is a story about BAGS and WOMAN.

For woman, the BIGGER the HANDBAG is the BETTER. Like the saying that said the more is the merrier. There are bags for everything… for coins, make-up, keys, hand phone or anything she might have… There might be BAGS inside that BIG HANDBAG. I know someone who has 4 to 5 bags inside her handbag… I myself would have extra bag inside mine… Most of the time, there are more ‘rubbish’ than useful and good stuff inside one’s handbag. Rubbish as if last month Guardian’s receipts, bank transaction slip which the printed already faded, used tissue and such. All scattered around inside those handbag. There were no different given the handbag is BIG or SMALL… there’s always a place for everything inside those handbag… as long as it can fit.. LOL!

I love handbag with 2 or mare compartments. So, I don’t need those extra bags. But I do have lots of those extra BAGS. More than 5 just in case… the MUST HAVE ITEM would be hand phone and the charger, wallet, keys, business card, umbrella, handkerchief, my mini first aid bag, a pen and a hand lotion. Great, it’s not more than 10…

That justify why woman need BIG handbag… to fit in the MUST HAVE item, the NOT SO IMPORTANT things such as a second wallet and the RUBBISH.

To conclude, it’s not that we really love those BIG handbags… it just that it’s in our blood. And we don’t really expect man to reason with our NEED for handbag. Cause we knew you would never understand it…

If she have that BIG handbag and LOTS of it; don’t complaint. It’s the thing of being a woman.

p/s; BIG and LOTS handbag is VERY NORMAL for a woman. Just like how we understand man. It’s normal if he love checking other girls, liar or unfaithful… LOL!

Have we met before?

Do you know why I heart you? Because I once have someone I loves that look like you…

Cliché

Have you heard the say that you are closer for closure if you meet all the other 6 people who look like you? SUPERSTITIOUS.

My science teacher when I was Form Two told me that I look like his sister… that explained why he  gave me an extra attention…

There are few other who told me that I look like their sister or friend. A lot actually… it makes me a bit sad sometimes… as if I’m not as special as other for my common face. LOL!

But luckily I haven’t met any of she-who-look-like me because it sure will be awkward… just imagine if you bumped into someone who wear the exact same clothes like you… I’m sure I’ll pretend I did not notice the other person and will try to disappear quickly.

I haven’t received such comments for quite sometimes until just now. It could be a pick-up line right? But I think he is for real…

Those 12 days…

I was walking down the staircase to catch the train on my first day after a long holiday… and I was thinking ‘what I’m doing here?’

Queue for the morning train… packing the breakfast and lunch, late night works, missing the sunset, catching the night train to go home… go to bed thinking of tomorrow which would probably another today.

Those 12 days off was not that great… it was tiring for lots of traveling and doing nothing much. But I was home…

HOME.

I wish it’s raining and… just raining…

Catching dragonfly

picture from:  www.dphotojournal.com

It’s like yesterday that I caught the dragonfly with my bare hand. Wait for it to park itself onto a tree’s branch or leaves. Walk damn slowly and catch it by the wings. It’s fun. Catch them and make them lift some stuff using their legs. Small rock, small pieces of leaves and such. Feed them and some other thing I should not have done. But, I was a kid back then… forgiven I guest.

The other day, I’ve tried to catch one for my little cousin, Kimi. I’m as excited as him… he never knew one I guest. So he kept saying ‘firefly… firefly… firefly…’ So adorable. It was so hard to catch one. Damn real hard. We patiently wait for it to park itself, I walk slowly but it flew before I could reach them. Even Kimi was in silence mode every time I make my move. Half and hour but we did not managed to get even one dragonfly. So, I take him to visit some chicken and cats instead…

Has the dragonfly evolve since the last time I have fun with them? LOL…

But, do kids nowadays know how to catch the dragonfly? Or did they know that it's fun trying to catch one? Maybe… in Play Station if there such games.

a beautiful smile...

My boss said to me ‘smile Shida, you have a beautiful smile…’ but I thought all smile is beautiful…’ indeed!! I felt guilty tho… because there are times when I’m all frown, gloomy or cloudy… but what did he expect? I’m not on vacation here…

He share with me a story... So, I'm sharing with you guys the lesson I've learn;

Life is more than cursing at the traffic which keeps you on the road more than it should. Life is more than complaining about the price increase of sugar. Life is more than your getting confuse over which car to buy. Life is more than your unsolved mathematical equation…

Life is bigger than all the worried that your mind has before you go into that temporary dead… 

We knew it but still...

GAGA'


I thought I could just watch her in TV without feeling anything… but my thought is wrong. I felt so ashamed to myself for watching her…

She is phenomenal… she creates a great music so they says… people are always wanted to know what she will wear or will not… LOL! She is lady gaga….

For me; She is disastrous. She is on her way to create a new way of life… in a bad way. She is on her way to make less than less as something acceptable. Thinking of her make me feel sick. Little did she know that she is a moron, she look as if she is from the time before ice age and apart from her over-rated too-much-skin revealing-costumes, she got nothing.

I just could not reason with her too much revealing costume… it’s sickening and I’m so shameful that we have to watch her in such condition… by ‘we’ I mean our children... 

the modern women...

take it or leave it...

All that a woman wants......

...A plain looking husband

...normal simple ring
...small wedding party

...honeymoon at any place

...small house for the kids to run around

...husband is a family man

...but work hard

...small car for shopping

...another car for kids

...some collections

...shoes for each occasion

...overseas trip once a year

... Presents occasionally

...finally, some securities.

That's it... WOMEN ARE NOT DEMANDING AT ALL!!!!!
