Sigh. This is the 2nd time I've lost my battle to a cold in a month. I just recovered from bronchitis 2 weeks ago, and now here I am, coughing and  aching all over the body. :( Why oh why...

But I only have myself to blame for cycling under the rain last Saturday. Sigh. Didn't expect it to rain, it just poured suddenly, and I had no where to stop and hide. However, I never regretted my ride that day. Firstly, because I get to ride with my ever-so-adorable aunt; and 2ndly, I get to see so many road bikes on the road, as it was the Penang Pesta Cycling Open Championship!! :D I almost hit a divider 'cause I was busy staring at other people's bike. Hehe. And one of the cyclist thought I was one of the contestants and asked me where to get the jersey!! Hahaha!! I must have had the cyclist pro look! :P
[Sexy. All 3 of them. :P]

Went for lunch with parents in the afternoon after the morning ride, and I was immediately down with fever. My fever must have fried my brain 'cause I bought this pretty pricey little t-rex plush toy which I initially thought was a cute crocodile. =.="

Please get well soon... Christmas is just around the corner... Don't let the coughing spoil this wonderful season...*Fingers cross*

You're Only 18 and 2* Once

I am again and again reminded by this little girl, who never fails to make me laugh, that I only live once. :)
Yesterday, Natasha and I were at 1st Avenue Mall. After a movie, as we were about to go home, we came across this super tall pink Christmas tree in the middle of the mall. Apparently, 1st Avenue was having this contest where any purchase of RM10 and above in a single receipt from any shops in 1st Avenue, you're entitled to participate in this competition, which you write your wish on this pink candy cane, and the 20 most creative wishes stand a chance to win a Ralph Lauren perfume. :)
[Pink candy cane]
I'm the kind who usually ignores such contest, 'cause.. What are the odds right?? My chances of winning are probably 1 in a million, so I usually don't waste my effort. But Nat being Nat, she was so excited about it so I just went along with it. :) 
 [My wish. HAHA!]
 [Nat :) ]
I convinced Nat to hang our candy cane at the highest peak, hoping that the organizer would see how sincere we are and we'd probably get chosen. LOL. When Nat climbed to the highest peak, the guard ran to us and shouted at us in hokkien: "Mai pek ah neh kuan!! Ka teng pa to lok lai tu cham!!" (It means "Don't climb so high, later you'd fall!") Haha. He shouted so loud that almost everyone in the mall were staring at us. 
Awesome dy la...famous dy la both of us. Probably got black listed for doing monkey business dy. Pffffft. :P
[That's how tall the Christmas tree is]
One candy cane wasn't enough for that day. So we went into another shop, spend another RM10 and had another candy cane. This time, it was Nat's turn to write her wish. Which I won't tell you what it is here, later she sue me for blogging about her wish without her consent :P Hehe.
That's it for now peeps! Will write soon. :)

First Ride

Went cycling with the boys for the first time yesterday. I was really, really nervous and scared 'cause it was my first time cycling on Penang roads. And if you've been to Penang, you'd know how crazy our traffic is, and how insane our drivers are, and how narrow our roads were made.
We started off from Gurney plaza at 7am. Weather was great, not too hot. Perfect for cycling. :)

The boys were really nice for waiting for me along the way and not leaving me behind though I was really slow. Haha. Deswyn was worried that I'll be bored cycling without someone in front of me (as the rest of them were already way ahead), so he overtook me and let me follow him. (But I know he secretly wants me to check out his b**t. HAHA.) Which made me even more depressed 'cause he made me realize how slow I was. =.="
Jason and Deswyn didn't manage to finish the route 'cause poor lil' Jason's tyre puncture along the way. =/ So Des had to cycle back home to get his car and fetch him and the bike home.

Overall. it was a good ride for a newbie and first timer. The hike up to Teluk Bahang dam was manageable. *Prouds* Dreamer did well too. *Double prouds* :)
[Calvin & Benson]

[Yours truly & Dreamer]
Special thanks to Deswyn, Calvin, Jason and Benson for making this ride a memorable one. :)

The author of this blog has been really sick these two weeks. :(
And being a pharmaceutical rep., I see doctors everyday, to the extend I don't feel like seeing them when I'm sick. Heh. But I've been coughing so badly that I finally couldn't take it anymore, so I went to the doctor yesterday. And guess what? I was diagnosed with Bronchitis. 

Bronchitis is inflammation or swelling of the bronchial tubes (bronchi), the air passages between the nose and the lungs. More specifically, bronchitis is when the lining of the bronchial tubes becomes inflamed or infected.
People with bronchitis breathe less air and oxygen into their lungs; they also have heavy mucus or phlegm forming in the airways. Taken from

No wonder my coughing is so bad. :(
And the funny part is, I sell antibiotics for the treatment of AECB (Acute Exacerbation Chronic Bronchitis). Haha. Irony. 
The doctor gave me antibiotics, meds for my cough, meds to clear my thick phlegm and for flu. He said I must have a caught a virus or a bacteria. And I suspect I got it from the hospital when I was seeing my doctors. Work hazard. Gah.

Anyhow, I do feel better today after taking a day off, and resting more. Finally!! After 2 weeks of coughing. :) But my medications are making my fingers tremble like I've got Parkinson's. Haha. And I'm feeling weak and tired that I have problem driving due to poor judgement. Sigh. But nonetheless, thank God I'm feeling much better today. Can't wait to get better so I could bring Dreamer out for a ride. ;)

APBIM 2012

I remember my first half marathon in year 2011. It was horrible. I was limping due to cramps on both legs, and crying when I cross the finishing line. Dreadful.

Last Sunday, 18th November 2012, was my 2nd half marathon. It was also my first and last Penang Bridge Marathon on the old bridge. :) So I would say it's a memorable one. Because according to others, next year's marathon will be on the new bridge. So I assume they're gonna rush to finish up the new bridge by 2013. 

I wasn't well prepared for the marathon at all. Neither physically nor mentally. It was raining every evening since 3 weeks before the marathon, so I couldn't really train, all because I was down with a cold. I'm still coughing like mad right now as I'm writing this post. :( Couldn't sleep the night before the marathon 'cause again, my throat was irritated and I kept waking up and coughing, to the extend I had to sleep in the living room, afraid of waking up my family and Captain Awesome (he was gonna run full marathon so I know how important it is for him to sleep).
Woke up at around 12.30AM, feeling horrible and having a thousand thoughts of just quitting and not going for the marathon. But nonetheless, I dragged my lazy a** to the marathon site. After saying goodbye to Captain Awesome, as his full marathon flag-off time is at 2:00AM, I sat there alone, day dreaming, looking at girls with skinny muscular legs; at guys with tight 2XU pants (sadly no handsome ones); and watching Mr. Siput warm up beside me (He was the fella who wore a snail suit and ran half marathon, I think, and written on his shell was "Run Like A Siput). Haha. Then I went to the portable toilet booth to ease my bladder, wondering if the whole booth would actually tumble over if I push it hard enough from the inside. Then I visited the different different tents, warmed up with the aerobics team like a malfunction robot 'cause I couldn't follow the steps. Yea. That was basically what I did in one hour and 15 minutes until it's time for my flag-off time, 3:15AM.

It wasn't an easy run, especially running with a dry, phlegmy throat, and coughing all the way. It was tough. I couldn't breathe properly. Then the first nightmare came, a pain on my left ankle starting from 9km. But I told myself, just keep running, and if it becomes too unbearable, just walk. So that's what I did. I ran and walk, ran and walk. I stopped at every St. John emergency "pit-stop" and asked for them to ice my left ankle. It didn't help. But I continue to ran.

Then came the 2nd nightmare. The urge to bang sai. =.=" Every portable toilet I see by the road side was so tempting. But when I imagine what I would smell and see when I open the door, I just tell myself: "Screw it. Just tahan til you finish the race and get home."
Then the image of the toilet bowl in my house suddenly turns to shinny gold. Hehehehe. 

I finish in 2 hours and 48 minutes. My strongest run was the last 4km. Probably because I want to bang sai so badly. Haha. Went to the APBIM website today and found my ranking: 360/1876. Lousy. Haha.
But nonetheless, I think I did pretty well this time even without proper training and bad physical condition. 2013 perhaps, I'll finish it in 2 hours and 15 minutes. ;)
Credits to Deswyn :)

[Finisher medal: Medals last longer than pain. ;) ]

Lastly, I wanna thank God for giving me the strength and determination to finish my half marathon, and also for helping Captain Awesome to finish his full marathon way before his time limit *prouds* and also for helping our friends too. Til next year. :)
[Captain Awesome and his full marathon finisher tshirt. :) ]
You did well, hun.

The New Ride

I've waited for this moment for years. And it finally came true.
[ Meet my partner in crime ;) ]
 [ Every hero needs a helmet to protect their heads :P ]

I'm still getting used to riding this stallion. It feels different because the tyres are really thin and thus needs more control. I haven't found a name for my bike yet. Any suggestions peeps? :)
And Penang Bridge Marathon is in 3 days time. I really signed up for sh*t this time. =.="
Dear legs, be strong this Sunday. *Fingers cross*

Because Of You

Because of You,
I learnt how to forgive others when they hurt me.
Because of You,
I was able to love those unlovable.
Because of You,
I learnt to show kindness and gentleness to those who don't deserve it in men's eyes.
Because of You,
I was able to give generously to those in need.

Because just like them, I've hurt others, I am unlovable, I'm undeserving...
Yet You love me unconditionally, and You never gave up on me.
And as Christmas approach, I hope I will be able to share this love with someone who needs this grace just as much as I do. :)

Comfort Zone vs Struggling

Everybody enjoys being comfortable. A comfortable seat, comfortable working environment, comfortable bed. Ahhhhh... Who doesn't want right? ;)
But the truth is, being too comfortable isn't gonna do us any good. Comfort zone, is one of the most dangerous places a person can be in, especially if one doesn't notice it.

When we're in our comfort zone, we don't strive to be better. Our thoughts, our efforts, our character is not being challenged. Our faith cannot be stretched. We become so well-fixed that we tend to stay at that moment, not wanting to move forward.

We think we're good enough. We think we're the best.
When someone asks us to do something beyond the ordinary, we complaint;
When someone else comes up with a better idea, we turn it down immediately without thinking it through, just because we feel uncomfortable about it.
And most of all, when we become too comfortable in our own comfort zone, we forget about God; the one who provides us all we need, from the daily meals on our table, to the safety of our home and loved ones.

So I always pray, that my life would not be a bed of roses. 'Cause I don't want to sink into my comfort zone. I don't want to forget about the wonderful hands that fed me and protected me. 
It doesn't matter it life gets a lil' rough at times, or if it bring a little discomfort.
Because when I struggle, I remember of the Lord.
I remember that God is in control, no matter how bad the situation is.
I remember how to hold on to my faith in Jesus during hard times, and I remember where my help comes from.
And because even when I struggle, I know that His grace and mercy is sufficient for me to carry me through.

So my question to you today is, "Are you in your comfort zone?". Time to get out of it.

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. " -Neale Walsh

Merdeka Cup

I was supposed to blog about this since 2 weeks ago, but I haven't had the time to do so. Blame it on my job. :P Hehe. For most of you who know me, or follow my blog (which is rather rare nowadays but oh well), you'd know that I play floorball. And the Penang state team has been training really hard for the so-called Merdeka Cup, which was supposed to fall on Malaysia's Independence Day, but ended up being postponed to 13th-14th October. =.="
[Penang State Team 2012]
It was supposed to be a game between Penang and Selangor, but unfortunately, our opponent decided to import a few ang mors into their men's team. It was a disadvantage for the Penang Men's team, but nonetheless, the boys put on a good fight. 
And as for the Penang Ladies' team, I'd say we don't deserve to lose, but yet, don't deserve to win. :) We don't deserve to lose because we played a better game than our opponent. We had the game under control and we forced them to play at our pace. However, we were unable to convert our chances and opportunities into goals. :/ Sad, but true. But if you ask me what I think about the Penang girls.. I only have one thing to say: I'm really, really proud of them. :) 

[Blessed and proud to have played with each of them :)]

[Anybody knows who's the one in the white glasses?? Very cool ler she...
Most of the girls in our team were very young, and thus, less experience. But they ran, and they fought. And I believe, if we put in double the effort and commitment, when we go back for Merdeka Cup 2013 next year, we WILL conquer. :) No doubt. 
 [My little pride :)]

It was a really good trip. Had so much fun. Really. :) I've never been the talkative kind of person, but just by listening to what the girls have to say, I could laugh my a** off. :D And not forgetting the night Winnie, Natasha and myself had to sleep knowing that there's a cockroach crawling somewhere in the room (I still think it went into Winnie's ear and came out dy. HAHA!), and also getting to meet the first Malaysian lady to win an Olympic medal! Pandelela Rinong. :) 

[The 2 monkeys in my room: Nat and Winnie]

[Potential circus performers]
And oh oh!! I get to try out kick boxing for the first time!! Heheheheheeeee. But ended up getting a bad headache for a whole10 minutes after the sparring session. Serene punched my head well. HAHA! :)

[Eeleen & Serene. We both have the same birth date. ;)]
[And this is the best!!! Watching the two sisters fight each other!!! Hahaha!!]
 Sharron *punches Serene*: "That's for stealing my food all the time!!"
Serene "punches back Sharron*: "And that's for telling mommy when I secretly talk over the phone whole night!!"
Okay. I'm being lame.

Floorball. Not a sport that is as famous as badminton or football in Malaysia yet. But it's not just about fame. It's about the passion. It's about helping the younger teammates to grow into a better player, even if they may end up outdoing me. But that's the point. They have to be better. So that the game grows, and so that they challenge me to become a better player myself too. :)

Money Not Enough $$$

I remember when I received my first summer job pay check, I felt like the richest person on earth. Serious. I had no commitment or whatsoever, so after giving a portion to my parents and also tithes, I had more than enough to keep and spend. It was an awesome feeling. And I remember telling myself, if I could do so much with this summer job pay check, imagine what I could do with a real salary!!

But sadly, that's not the case. LOL. As you grow up, your commitments increase. Car loans, phone bills, credit card bills etc. GAH. Why oh why......................... Sigh.
I guess it's just part of growing up la.. :(
HOWEVER, if I sit down and reflect upon my life, I actually have all I need. :) It's the "wants" that is burning a hole in my pocket. Hehe. For example... TAAA DAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Oakley Jawbone. It just spells A.W.E.S.O.M.E. 
Like me. Bwahahahahahahahahahaa.
Awesome sun glasses for awesome people. A must have. Hehe.

And then, there's my road bike. Another bomb in the pocket. 

And my new Unihoc stick finally arrived!! Can't take it seriously with its color but I'm sure it'll kick ass. :D
Player + 1.5 Curve :)

I guess I just have to work harder la that's all...:) 加油!! 加油!!

Malaysia Day

Happy Malaysia Day, peeps! :)
For years, we've been questioning how much Malaysia is providing us, 
maybe it's time to be asking ourselves this instead: 
How are we contributing to our country?

Should She Stay Or Should She Go

I was driving to work this morning, and as usual I switched on the radio to listen to Mix FM. And they always have this program known as "Should I Stay Or Should I Go". Basically, if you have a dilemma about whether you should stay or move on in a situation, you can just call up and talk to JD and Dilly and they'll try to get you advices from the audiences.

So today, this lady called up and mentioned her situation, that she's been separated from her husband for a year. And within that year, she met this new guy. At first it was just a fling, and after that, it got serious. And when she thought it's time to move on, the husband came back and said he wants to work things out. So now she's kinda stuck in between, deciding whether to try to work things out with the husband or just move on with the new guy.

What surprises me was this, out of 10 audiences who called to give their point of view, 10 asked her to move on. I mean, logically, yes, you should move on if you're not happy in a relationship...but my question is this: 
Does anyone still respect and understand the meaning of marriage? What happened to marriage covenants? What happened to "Til death do us part"?

I guess many of us would try to tell ourselves that we all have the rights to be happy.. and I don't deny the truth about it. Who doesn't want to be happy right? But marriage is not a game. It's not something you give up easily just because you're unhappy about it.  
Ask any married couple, are their relationship always smooth sailing? Is it always easy? I'm sure each and every one of them would give you a 100% "No" for an answer.

To the lady who called in this morning, if you're reading this, my advice may be slightly different from the rest of the audience. To be honest, if you were not married, I would say, MOVE ON!! But in your case, try to work things out. You married him for a reason, find back that reason and give yourself another chance to fall in love again. Good things don't come easily, it may be hard, but it'll be worth it someday. I'm not saying that it'll work out for sure, but at least you try. And you'll never regret when you've tried your best.
All the best. :)

The Golden Girl

The first time I noticed her was when I saw her super huge poster on 1Borneo's Adidas outlet. And I was like, who's that hot chick?? Then not long after that, I saw her Adidas micoach ad on Youtube, and she was no stranger to me after that.

Jessica Ennis:
2012 Olympic Heptathlon Champion and also 2010 World Indoor Championship Gold Medalist in Pentathlon

Some people are crazily good at one thing. It's like they were born to do that one thing. Take Usain Bolt for instance, his name is bolt for a reason..HAVE YOU SEEN HIS 100 METER SPRINT?!?!?!
Then let's look at Serena Williams; that super muscular arms that gives super powerful serves...Poooooommmmm!!!

But to be good at 5 to 7 different events?? I call that AWESOMENESS. And a little bit insane. Hehe.
I think Jessica definitely deserves the golden medal in the 2012 London Olympics. Imagine the stress and pressure she had to bear on her shoulder with a whole stadium of crowd expecting her to win gold for the country. It takes alot of courage.

So there you go! Jessica Ennis, with that well toned, sexy body and a really, really adorable smile. :) Makes me want to smile too.

Ma new role model. :)

Broken Chain

I'll never be the same after this.
You can fix a broken chain, but you can never fix what happened when the chain broke.
That consequences of a broken chain......
A cyclist might trip and fall because his bicycle chain broke;
A crane might drop its heavy load because the chain broke;
A dog might get lost and run away because its chain broke off.

You can get a new chain for all the above, but you just can't undo what follows.

Busy Busy Busy = Sick

Suddenly feel like 24 hours is just not enough. But I'm very sure even if God gives me 36 hours a day I'd still be complaining that it ain't enough. HAHA. :) So I guess it still boils down to proper time management.

Haven't been feeling well for the past few days. Thanks to the horrible hazy weather, caused by the peat forest burning in Sumatra. Sigh. It hits Malaysia every year without failure. Why can't they think of a better way to clear their forest instead of burning it?!?! I know it's cheap and easy to burn, but they gotta think for those who suffer from asthma or those who have weak respiratory system maaaaaa...pffft. :(
But anyhow, I'm getting better dy. Can take on a tiger dy. :P Hehe.

I've officially signed up for Penang Bridge Internation Marathon. Half marathon. *Dreads*
I LOVEEEEEE running. But to be honest, when it comes to a distance of just spells...
Haha. Well, what's done is done. Hope my legs won't cramped half way like it did last year. And maybe, if my body allows it, I'll try 42km next year. ;)

As for now, I've gotta concentrate on my floorball. At least until after Merdeka cup. 
Then after that, I'm gonna save this beauty from the GIANT Bike store and hit the road with it and run away together to some paradise...

...and then ride home safely each time. I hope. :)
Gonna go for a run now. Adios peeps!

A Letter to Myself

Dear Eeleen,

I hope you're reminded that the fact that you've come this far could only mean one thing: 
That you're special and you're meant for something great. 
Remember how many times you've cried? Remember all the times you've felt like you can't go on anymore?
Remember how you've got your heart broken so many times and didn't understand how can life be so unfair?
And the bazillion times you've failed yourself and those who love you? Failures after failures, mistakes after mistakes. And do you remember how often you told yourself that this would be the last time you'd screw up and realize that it's just a lie you tell yourself?

But look at you today, Eeleen. You're still here. Still pushing on. Still fighting. Still believing. 
That's how it should be. 
Life ain't a bed of roses. It ain't all smooth like pure yoghurt.
Things happen. Sh*t happens. Circumstances change. We meet people who drive us up the wall. And some eventually break our hearts though we gave them everything we have.

But remember one thing, the harder the struggle, the more glorious the triumph. Everything you go through is a story that could help someone someday. Every mistake and teardrop is a lesson learnt. Or like how some people like to put it, there is no mistake. Everything happens for a reason. 
I believe that one can only understand if he or she has gone through it and come out of it with victory. How can you understand someone who felt hopeless if you've not been at that state before? And how can you say you've loved someone, if you haven't been at the situation where his/her happiness is the most important thing, even if it means letting them go? 

Keep believing, Eeleen. Have a leap of faith. His mercy and grace is always sufficient. 
So don't give up. When things get tough, look up. Your strength comes from above.
Do what you love, Eeleen. Don't let the world define you. Don't let them kill your dreams and destroy your passion. I know you feel scared sometimes. It's normal to be afraid. It shows that you're human and it gives you a chance to have faith.
And you deserve to be happy. Don't settle for less, or good enough. Your heavenly Father wants you to have the best of everything in life. So why settle for anything less than that, silly?
Be patient and wait. Let it be His time, His will, His way. 
Til then, always believe.
"A quarter of a century year old now". HAHA. But to be honest, it's just a number. Yes, it comes with responsibilities. But it doesn't mean you have to be all serious and boring. Be young at heart. Be crazy if you have to. As long as you don't get anybody killed, or break any biblical laws. ;)

And ALWAYS..always remember to appreciate those who have been there through thick and thin. Life is short. Make sure you remember to tell them about how you feel before they're gone. You'll never know when. Regretting over something you didn't do or could have done, it the worst feeling one can feel. Don't ever let that happen. Once again, Happy Birthday. :)

Beauty & Perfection

Perfection - Something we all look for, yet know that it's rather impossible to find.
We might not be perfect outwardly, but we can always strive to be perfect inwardly in terms of character, personality and attitude.
Because this beauty inside you, is the one thing which will be reflected when someday your physical body fails you; or when you scar your face; or when your legs can no longer walk or run. Beauty and perfection will be seen through your character. How you treat others, how you handle a tough situation, how you talk to someone who is trying to pick a fight with you.

Stop trying to look for beauty and perfection out there. Try looking for it from within yourself.

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I couldn't agree more.
Like the quote in Mulan says: 
"The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all."
So did the bible: ...because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into out hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Roman 5:3-5 (NIV)

Whatever you're going through right now, whatever sh*t you're in, remember that at the end of the storm, you'll come out a better person; 
A step closer to being perfect, a step closer to being truly beautiful. :)

Mr. & Mrs. Harold Chung

This was supposed to be up a week ago but I have been superbly busy ever since I came back from Sabah. Heh. Sorry for the delay ah..:)
Yes. I flew to KK two weekends ago for Captain Awesome's brother's big day:
Harold and Doreen's wedding. :)

I missed the church wedding 'cause it was on a separate weekday, so I could only make it for the dinner. Nonetheless, it was full of surprises, with a crazy wedding entrance dance (exactly like the one I danced for Matthew and Madalen's wedding dinner), a very cute and funny video of Harold trying to save the world while his bride was anxiously waiting for him to get married LOL, and also a young band performing pretty good music.

The band was seated at our table and Captain Awesome told me that the lead guitarist kept staring at him. So I suspect that he's gay 'cause he had hair twice the length of mine, and he had mascara and eyeliner on, and earring on his right ear. But oh well..I wouldn't mind letting him feast his eye on Captain Awesome for a while 'cause he played good music. HAHAHA. :D
[Table gift. The fake forrero roche was just styrofoam ball inside. Bwahahahahahaha. ]

[The scene before everyone arrives]

[Pretty cake :) ]

[How can you not love roses?!?!]

[Eeleen, Doreen, Harold & Shawn]

[HAHA. I should wear this while running the 2012 PBIM. 
I'll definitely be on Star paper the next day.]

[Like a boss]

[He farted. Hehehehe.]

[Nah..the band. You can guess who checked Captain Awesome out. 
No prize for guessing correctly. Teehee. :D]
And the most epic part of the night is when I was mistaken as Captain Awesome's escort. WTH.
I think it's his aunty. She thought I was only 15 or 16 and thought Captain Awesome hired me to be his escort. WALAO. Pffffft. Captain Awesome felt super insulted, but for gotta be really attractive and smart to be an escort right?? LOL. So I take it as a compliment. HAHAHA.

In the end, I was assigned to give out these roses, since Harold has already paid for it. Plus, it was only few days after Valentine's. So it'd be nice to give the ladies these roses. :)
[My Valentine's gift from Shawn. A paper prawn. How nice of him. LOL. 
But then, I gotta compliment him for his origami skills. I suck in origami. Suck big time.]
And no. He didn't give me a paper prawn for Valentine's. Haha.

This is Leopard. Cutest cat I've seen so far. :D]

[Look at her adorable pose!! I've never been a cat person. But Leopard's just too cute!! :) ]
I was in KK for barely 48 hours, and had to say goodbye dy. Sigh. But it's okay. I should be seeing him soon. Flew back to Penang early in the morning, and straight away head to Vistana Hotel for my company's annual dinner. I was in charge of the event and was also the emcee, so I had to be there by noon to make sure everything was alright and also for rehearsals.

[Caroline-Eeleen-Ewa. Colleagues from KL.]
Totally knocked out after I reach home. Tired. But it was all worth it. :))
