Sakai Ourselves-lah!

If you speak Hokkien, you'd probably understand my title. If not, think ~knocking on your own head with your knuckles~...

I've lamented the quality of this Japanese place before....last Sunday, for god only knows what reason, I had the clever idea of going to eat there again - this time the outlet at The Curve.....I had already been quite hungry from 10am but waited til 11.30am for this place to open.

Sigh, I took the exact same thing I complained about before - the sushi that only had topping on one piece and the other one was an empty or rather 'topless' beancurd rice.

JH ordered some scallop newbie and we had some other stuff.....the bill came to RM60 over for the two of us (do we overdo things???). Sigh, things have NOT improved - we've decided to award it with the 'AEK' prize. From now on - JH and ET's 'AEK' list.....

So far the awardees are:
1. Sakai Sushi
2. Pizza One

(all names are changed to protect the privacy of these establishments). AHEM!

Cry-worthy song

I just heard this tonight on my Ipod....I Loved Her First by Heartland.

Here is an excerpt of the lyrics:

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each others face
So much in love your alone in this place
Like there's nobody else in the world
I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one
She told me so
And she still means the world to me
Just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl

Time changes everything
Life must go on
And I'm not gonna stand in your way

But I loved her first and I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she'd find you someday
But it still hard to give her away
I loved her first

How could that beautiful women with you
Be the same freckle face kid that I knew
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time.......

It's one of those songs that can make me cry - much like 'Butterfly Kisses' by Bob Carlisle from way back, THAT one I cried EVERY TIME I heard the song. This one by Heartland, at first I thought it was talking about an ex-love but then when you listen carefully, it's actually about a father's love for his daughter.......well, the phrase 'the love of a father' kinda gives it away...... hahah

Globeshopper to the rescue?

Where to buy Victoria's Secret in Malaysia????

PRIVACY for some but not others - the ironies of life!

AIyoyoyoyyo - since the phishing scam - I've been paranoid and changing my passwords and logins everywhere and forgetting what I put in! Sheesshhh!

I actually don't have much to write about, just checking in and fooling around... Oh yeah! I should mention something - you know when you get your bills for utilities that you use like credit cards and handphone bills and usually the organisation provides you with a reply 'Cheque' envelope duly addressed back to their payment centres and free postage?? Well, I've just recently started using a new bank's credit card - an international bank and guess what! I realise they provide a blank envelope AND no postage!!!!!!!

I was thinking it would be much much easier to pay them since they only have one branch in the whole of KL and even so, located in a terrible far away place (from me).....but no! They're too cheap to even be friendly with customers like that! Sheeesh!

What else do I want to gripe about - let's face is really spotty! I never really had a problem with acne before in my entire life, but perhaps due to my 'bragging' nature about having gone for only 10 facials in my entire life and not having bad skin during this or that time of the month.....I'm getting payback! And IN A BIG WAY!!!!!!!! Ever since the wedding, I've been having these quite terrible breakouts with big zits right on my cheeks, near my eyeline.....sian! I really look quite fugly now with my glasses, bad hair, bad skin, fat body....... :(

I've been on youtube recently - voyeuring, not posting......and I don't know if I've mentioned this but I found kandee the makeup artist who is quite cool and another girl - aubrey who looks Filipino but lives in the States.....the first one I saw of her was a bad one where she was trying to curl her short hair.....I think she wasn't in the mood for a shoot so the chemistry was off, the charm was missing and witty banter? Elek! But then I saw some other ones.....and she can be quite addictive! She's got 4000 subscribers! I mused out loud to JH - wonder if I just sat in front of the camera, people would subscribe to my channel.....just sit there and look pretty - oh, sorry, fugly now....perhaps I'll be the digital circus freak?

Anyway, I like to watch youtube for great singing talents like Charice (whom I've blogged about before....but is scarily MATURE for her age), Project Runway episodes and make up and hair how-tos.....though I never use the tips but I love watching 'the magic'!
