Twenty Fourteen in a Nutshell

Wednesday, December 24, 2014
i guess it is time to stop and look back at all the highlights of twenty fourteen for me.

twenty fourteen start off in the simplest way possible. there wasn't anything special besides me being at camerons for the first time for company trip (oh i left that company already btw). did one of my proudest work for Kenny for Valentines this year too!

first impression is always important. you wouldn't want to wake up looking like a ghost to meet someone new or attend an interview underdressed and not looking your best would you?

#JxY_ | How It All Started

Monday, December 15, 2014

it takes two hearts to beat, two souls to go on a journey, two hands to cling on to each other, and two knots to tie each other. it took us to a whole new adventure.

Of Relationships and Mind Games

Friday, December 12, 2014

so i was watching this video by Jinnyboy earlier today. and here's my verdict on relationship and mind games.

it's a fact that these days, many of us tend to play mind games before getting into an official relationship. it all begins by adding each other on social media after meeting for the first time. perhaps not even meeting at all by using dating apps such as Tinder / Paktor and so on. u wait for a couple of days, mayb months before you approve their Facebook request or say your first "Hi". while the other person takes a couple of hours before replying u. and it goes on and on...

u don't reply a long sentence coz u think it may sound desperate. or you opt to wait for the other person to start the conversation.

for goodness sake, if you're already on social dating apps, are u even that shy or embarrassed in the first place to make the first move?

u probably might not get it that there are shy guys as well. girls, why can't u make the first move? no one is gonna call u a slut if u act first. there's no harm in dropping a hint in letting the other person know that u are interested. drop your first "Hi" to start the conversation, find mutual topics, send a random funny image, anything u can think of!

[TAKE A STEP] Hello Kitty Town JB

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Had to be the specky girl coz my contact lens died from the rain during the marathon and I forgotten to bring extra disposable contact lens along for this trip. We left for Hello Kitty Town from Singapore after checking out from hotel and nommed at Puteri Harbour before we heading in to the "town".

Marathon | Hello Kitty Run Singapore 2014

Wednesday, December 10, 2014
sorry for the backlog post! i know i've not been updating frequently enough! please forgive me.

so anyway earlier last month i've headed down to singapore for Hello Kitty run. i'd say it was massive. there were thousands and thousands of us doing the run.

upon arrival, i got in touch with Jyuri first to get my race pack from her and then got myself changed for the run. guess there were just too many of us, it ended up being a standstill and walkaton instead. mehhhhh....

*this post is non-halal. sorry if you are a malay reader. :)

personally, i've not tried Boat Noodles / Big Spoon or anything similar like that. i did drop by Boat Noodles once but the queue was so long i gave up.

of being judged.

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

waking up to a brand new day knowing that from the decision made and posting of my latest update yesterday would have upset and shocked many. i'm pretty sure that there are many that would have started judging me with their very colourful eyes. words like childish, selfish, bitchy, show off, disrespectful would come easily.

humans are naturally selfish. especially when it comes to emotional feeling. who would want to be hurt? who would want to experience heart pain? neither one of us want to. but there will be times when certain decisions have to be made. to stay put or to move on.

who would have guessed things like this would happen so easily. even i myself did not prepare myself for any of these.

at least im here to face and bear the consequences of my decision. rather than hiding in the dark.

for those who have known me and understood me would know that i am someone who have always been worried and upset whenever being judged. i could have managed the settings, and hid them away from some of you but i chose not to. so, it is quite a huge decision for me to do something like this and . but heck, this is part of life.

i guess people grow up and change. so did i.

there isn't need for explanation on the decisions that i've made, on whatever that had happened because no one else would know what exactly had happened and understand besides us. whatever had happened was a beautiful memory which i will always keep with me with no regrets.

for whoever that feels sick and disgusted looking at my photos or updates, feel free to remove me from your friend list if it makes u happy.

at the end of the day, i've chosen to go on this brand new adventure and there wont be any regrets.

so go ahead, judge me. i will take them in as a learning to strengthen myself even better.

Darts | MSDO Championship 2014

Thursday, November 27, 2014

it was the event of the year that i've been anticipating and training hard for. this year, the number of players doubled up, which means even tougher fights for me and everyone else who played last year.

クリスマスの意味。The Meaning of Christmas.

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

it is the time that i've been waiting all year long
it is the season that i love most
it is the festive that i'd want to be with that special person

it doesn't really matter what we'll do
it doesn't really matter what gifts or if there will be any
what really matter is the time that i'm gonna spend with u

tis the season to be jolly and merry
the season of love for family
the season of love for the loved one

for christmas is the most meaningful day to me
it is the most beautiful celebration to me
and the most romantic of all for me

for if i've said i wanted to be with u on this day
u should know how much u mean to me
for if u've decided not to be with me on this day
i will understand that i may not mean anything to u

for all that i want for christmas
u will have to find out
for who i want to be with on christmas
for u should feel it within u

a wandering wanderlust
with her mind wandering into space
a space of empty thoughts

probably there was too much on her mind
probably she wanted to take things off her mind
probably she didn't know what to do with her mind

let her wander
let her fall
for that she will find her ways
ways to stand up once again

for she is no one
for she wants to be no where
for she has lost her mind

far far away
on a wanderlust journey
let her be


Take A Step | On the land of Bangkok 1.0 Episode Five

Take A Step | On the land of Bangkok 1.0 Episode Four

Monday, November 10, 2014

Woke up to day three and headed over to Siam area which we started off with lunch at Siam Paragon. lunch was at the food court of course. Since it would be pretty fast. We also did the stupid poses outside the food court acting all scared inside the shark mouth.


Friday, November 7, 2014

tomorrow never knows.
zutto. zutto.
never give up. on your dreams.

it is un-explainable.
it is indescribable.

it happens as when it happens.
it leaves as when it leaves.

sometimes it happens so fast.
so fast that you're unable to think before reacting.

sometimes it is not how long you've known each other.
because when it is the right time, u just have to hold on.

sometimes it is not how much time you've spent with each other.
because not everyone waits. not every fate waits.

the only explanation is...
when both held on to each other.
when both appreciates and treasure each other.
when they learn to accept and compromise with no force.


we cross paths on many occasions.
we brushed pass each other at many places.
yet. we did not meet.

it is fate that brings us together.
to have known each other.

may it be friendships.
may it be a new relationship.
may it be soul mates.

may it be an ending.
may it be enemies.

it takes us through many new challenges.
some may not pull through it.
others may end up with the ending they always dreamt.

always believe in it.
always have faith in it.

because if it's meant to be, it will be.
if it's not meant to be, it will never be even if by force.

appreciate it.
treasure it.

何ですか?What is?

Wednesday, November 5, 2014


two souls walked as one. 
bracing on different challenges.
venturing on a journey that they own.

two souls loved as one.
accepting each other's flaws.
with no complaints, with no rage.

giving their all.
appreciating the times that they had.
sharing and loving.

protecting each other.
not letting go when one was falling.
zutto. believing in fate.


there were many mistakes made.
that were never fixed.

there were love given.
that were unappreciated.

they did not understand each other's needs and wants.
they expected return. they forgotten on giving and not just receiving.
they forgotten it was a two way communication.

there were barriers. huge barriers that could not be broken.
there were issues. big issues that were never resolved.
they were overlooked as small matters.

these two were unaware.
unaware that they have both took different paths.
paths that would have led them to a different ending.
to an unexpected ending.


it comes to a point where these two souls can no longer hold on together.
with all the mistakes made throughout their journey.
with all the hurt and pain. all the selfishness.

and they..

embark on a new journey. when one fate ends, another new journey begins.
always have faith in fate. because fate will bring u to a new adventure.
an adventure that you will look forward to experiencing.

this is the end of a journey of three years.
this is the end of it.
it has been some time.and not many have heard of it.

it took some time but
i am ready.

those were beautiful memories.
memories that will be kept safe.

there will be questions.
there will be many WHYs?


all that could be said is...

heads up. move on. step forward.
there is no point standing at the starting point.
stop dwelling in the past.
time will not turn back.
even if there are or will be regrets.

this is life. but remember. to always believe.
there will be someone out there. 
waiting for you.

There are times in life when there's something u have to let go although u may not want to. There are times in life when u don't have a choice. There are times in life when u've got to smile and move forward. But the fact that this is life.

Perhaps there are many things in life that you're not willing to let go off. Perhaps you are stuck somewhere in between letting go and holding on. At this point of time, the best thing is to do a little something different from your daily routine. Instead of hot coffee, perhaps a cup of iced tea. Or you could embark on a brand new journey to somewhere new. You might just see things in a whole new different perspective.

Sometimes you have to walk away from what you want to find what you deserve. Sometimes you have to make that decision in life. Even if it is so harsh that you might end up regretting it some day. Even if you have to be the mean and hurtful person. But there are these times when you just have to be that person. Even if it takes to be judged.

There's one thing to always bare in mind, that no matter what you say or do, there will always be someone judging you. Because you can never please everyone in the world.

So stop trying so hard because you don't have to impress the whole world. You just have to be you to take what it takes and do what it makes for your own future. Yes, this may sound a little on the selfish side but basically this is human nature. We tend to be a little selfish especially when it comes to emotional feelings. We put ourselves before anyone else.

Don't let the words, actions and attitude of others affect ur emotion, smile and life. Because you live your life.

And as time goes by.... we travel a little further on a different journey.

We have different mind sets, We took different paths. Without realizing it. At the point of realization, it may be a little too late to turn back time. We've walked our journey differently. We've set our journey differently. Yet we did not realize we were doing it together. Yet there was a huge misunderstanding that it wasn't the way it was expected to turn out.

It is a risk. A risk so high it is worse than forex at any point of time. Yet all of us would take our chances.

Once taken, there will be one who might end up in pain....

The only constant in life is change. Human changes. Their way of living, mindset and feelings change. Some would remain as who they are but most change as they grow older. Some change for the better. Some for the worse. But remember not to change yourself for someone else. Change because you think it is for the best of you. And appreciate every person and moment before anything changes because this is part of life.

Enjoy life to the fullest, and make the best out of it! As so I've said it. :)

Dream Trip to Macau

Sunday, October 26, 2014
I've been to a couple of countries in Asia including Hong Kong which was 7 years ago but yet to have the chance to visit Macau! there are so many reasons for me to go which i am already saving for. and here are my top 3 reasons for dreaming a trip to Macau!

1. Historical Buildings & Guia Fortress

This is pretty cliche but when u visit a country, you'll definitely have to see the best of them! Having to see my besties and other friends selfie-ing with these beautiful architectures always turn me into an envious green monster. Plus Guia Fortress is located at the highest peak of the Guia Hill! simply gorgeous!

2. Darting with Macau Players

and as my readers know I love darts and there are so many awesome darters in Macau that I would like to personally meet and learn from them! I was supposed to go earlier this year for a tournament which I had to skip due to work reasons. :(

3. Jumping off Macau Tower

Look at that beautiful Macau Tower. It has always been on my bucket list that I've been longing to do! To jump off Macau Tower with that awesome scream while enjoying the awesome view from up above! and me being a scardey cat would really want to do it right NOW!

i guess i really am craving for that crazy adrenaline rush right now looking at these really awesome jump photos! and they say when you're craving for it, it is the best time to do it. else you'll be over with it and not able to do it ever again! :(

biggest bonus would definitely be all the awesome yummy good street food! om nom nom nomssssss!

and with these three reasons, I really do hope that  Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) and Nuffnang Malaysia would make this crazy dream come true for me!!! pretty please~~~~

Take A Step | On the land of Bangkok 1.0 Episode Two

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

After a quick shower and change, we head out for dins at Cabbages & Condom which was one of the popular spots in Bangkok. and of course you wouldn't be able to find something like this in KL. The thing I didn't like about taking the cab from the hotel was most cabbies would give u a flat rate instead of running on the meter but it would be so much cheaper if we got 1 with meter.

Bad tip indeed.
