we greedily gazing the little cozy space, it is small but it gives a rustic romantic kind of atmosphere. Decorated with the crafty painting, the unfeigned and delicate homemade embroidery , and not forgetting the worn off wall expose the red brick embellishing another artistic element, apparently the owner is really good at recycling his stuff that collected for many years.
We wanted to order the highly recommended chocolate mud but it wasnt in the menu so we decided to try on the black cherry chocolate cake and the coconut brownies with coconut ice-cream, with the cuppicino and orange lassi.
The first bite of the warmth cake that matched perfectly with the icy cool of ice-cream literally melted in our mouth and utterly tickles the taste buds.
We exchanged a little chat with the female boss before leaving, from the conversation, it isnt hard to know the owner pursue arts ardently which can be shown from every details in the cafe or even shown from the quality of food served, even if it isnt making too much profit from the business but the appreciation from the customer on their food means alot to them.
Stepping out from the same door that we walked in moments ago, I realize my mood has changed 180, like a kid who just discover a great treasure I was really happy to have visited this new inviting and homely space, lingering in the heart isnt just the contentment and pleasure you had after a delectable appetizer but that 2 hours spent somehow appease the weariness of a busy life.

I don’t intend to make this blog schmaltzy albeit I was bidding a friend adieu. For my 5-6 years in Intel, I have met lots of wonderful and great friends who joined as my badge or slightly older or younger and I was lucky that we could really live like a big family. But when the old faces gradually seceded from the same life cycle year after year, shifting in are those younger fresh grad whom I hardly mingled with, slowly life doesn't seem to be so fun anymore and that is when we felt ourselves grow older, and dull.
Jul is always a very decent nice girl who you can get very comfortable with, she has the nicest skin complexion but what makes her different is, she is a very mellow and humble kind of person and looks extremely sweet with 2 visible natural dimple on her cheek that divulge so effortlessly when she smile.
I will remember all the midnight rendezvous in clubs and dancing away our youth with not a semblance of regrets left.
and I shall cherish all the fun and laughter we shared and felt blessed for the friendship as long as i could remember.
Seriously, I think I must have lost a friend who contributes so much fun in my life though we are getting older and wiser that we only partying when “ necessary”.
and so, clubbing for the final time seems to be the best decision ever to sum up the whole chapter of this friend in
The 20++ of fun loving people ensued their saturday night from a wedding dinner to UPR and after spent almost an hour doing the club surveying and bargaining over the price, we finally decided to binge into Fame since most of us hasn’t clubbed for ages.
Honestly, the club doesn’t impress us at all and the song wasnt that fun to gear up the mood but you wouldn’t care much for those details when you are partying with the right crowd.
See you again Jul!

anyway, I had a good thanksgiving this year too. And I believe he was too.
I am glad both of us made the effort to be at home earlier to prepare the dinner together. :)
Our scrumptious black pepper steak, which is also our first attempt on grilling steak.

*Heads up to whoever reading this, this is a private post so if you are going to read, please don’t be judgmental*
maybe I am started to feel free or what. i really have lots of time for my blog now.
Anyway, I am not trying to pinpoint anything nor anyone saying they didnt do their duty well. I just want to vent my despair, I just want to feel liberate again!(why should I explain? I dont know..haha)
There are times like this time, when I am stale and having times to ponder over my future, my mind will mechanically reload back itself on our problem that we never weary to avoid facing it, and once I started to accelerate the engine and let the issue slowly infiltrate into me bits by bits, i will feel the same old agitation, lost and even questioning the worthiness again.
To thread towards a wedding, I must say I have lots of requirements to please. And yes, some people are always judgmental and kept asking me " you said you are not prepared do you mean you don’t love him?" HELL NO!
I love this guy whom I know will stand by me no matter what happen, laminate me through the rains and fall ( or maybe not everytime =.= ), and most importantly he always seems to have the psychic power to read me.Simply because I know he understand me and yet still deliberately procrastinate the commitments that had promised for years,hence that is when it started to make me feel that maybe I am not ready for a marriage at all.
To born as a Christian, I always want to live in Christian life and I want my husband to be one too. I am not afraid to say, and i dont care if you think i am too demanding or despotic, but everyone has their chance to choose what they want in their life. And before we get along together, he had made that promise that it is something that he will commit, by free will. And merely if he wants to.
But seriously, what fretted me now is a part of me knows I can’t tell if this is true anymore.
I never like to act like a pushy partner who keep on reminding her partner of what he should do and what's not because I want to hold to my principle, that somebody who seriously wants to do it will eventually do it. No force, no push and of coz something that you perceive through an argument isn’t as genuine as its original intention anymore. But sometimes, it does get to my nerves that I need to give a push and query, but as usual the answers will always be " i was busy..." " i was doing this and that..." " i was going to do it..." blah blah. I know we are getting too complacent with our life sometimes that we forgot what is important and start taking thing for granted, and I am fear of knowing the fact that I dont want to start a fight so I will always keep myself busy to shun the same topic that rile us up again.
But, a part of me was protesting and saying this is unacceptable, this is nonsense. If no time, make time!
we, both of us, to be honest, had indeed spent too much time on work. He and I worked from morning to sometimes midnight and even he had to report to office during weekend for the whole day which doesn’t seem healthy anymore. I hope his hard work paid off well.
Honestly I don’t feel good to complaint, and it doesn’t make me remotely happier even after I vent. But i just hate a moment like this when I am having some time to reflect on my life, and the schmaltzy side of me suddenly pop out and conjure up the reality again.
In this moment. Nothing seems right anymore.
I decided to change my title to something more intellective.
But she might not stay long enough to witness the end of the world, which is 2012..emm..or 2011?
Anyway, "If the shoes fit" served her master well for the good 3 years and it is time to withdraw from reality, officially. As her ungrateful master thought her name is too trite to continue considering many aspects like feng shui and ba zi (translate in Chinese please) and she isn’t making much sense to anyone, or maybe except me.
So to commemorate the respectable "if the shoes fit" I shall reveal the story behind its title.
"If the shoes fits" is named after a movie I watched when I was in pre-puberty age and I can't really recollect what year was the movie taken place. But that is a very emblematic love story that a poor girl like Cinderella except she didn’t have a wicked stepmom but replaced by a very great mom who worked as the dressmaker. So ultimately Cinderella met with a heartthrob charming rich guy and they fell in love. The falling in love didn’t happen without any solid reason to justify, actually the girl was wearing a dress that her mum tailor-made and that made her standout because her mum is a great tailor and can make cloth that you cant see whether the dress is branded/not branded and make people fail to distinguish if u are poor or rich. Anyway, I made it up when I was in age 12. So they fall in love and the girl started to cringe in shame with her meager background status and having a mother( maybe the father died early so i only remembered the mum.) who was old and poor. So she didn’t want the guy to know her background and played lots of antics to hide it. So the cliché storyline involves telling people the mum was not her mum but her servant, something like that. Audibly that hurt her mum’s feeling and she finally dawned with consciences and realize the big mess she threw and eventually trying to break up with the guy because she felt herself too small to claim a tie of kinship with the guy in such a high social status but of coz la, the happy ending always end with the guy didn’t mind and they lived happily ever after.
dozeeeeddddd ooofffffff yyyeeet?????????
Anyway, I kind of like the movie because that was the first time I ever imagine what if I have such a wonderful love story and I can live like a princess with my prince charming in my castle forever and ever.
Good thing is...the reality doesn’t run too far this time when I grew up.
I have a my prince caring – CHECK
I am still my mum's little princess though i am way too old to call " little" –CHECK
All are right, EXCEPT
My prince caring isn’t charming enuf carrying his singular abdominal that gets rounder –UNCHECK!UNCHECK!UNCHECK!UNCHECK!!
and too bad, i don’t have a castle. :'(:’(:’(
What a slothful morning with the drizzly long-winded rain.
So you think i am going to talk about my ex-bf? OF COZ NO!

If they were just a sheer coincident, then I would chop my head down for the sacred oblation.
Every time when I extol on how wonderful my days was merely when I felt good that day, some busket thing would surely come along my way rile me up and make me felt like a shithead again. Seriously I was totally awed and amused with that quirk of fate that so ever precisely chose its timing to crush the optimist me entirely. EVERY SINGLE FXXKING TIME.
I was amassed with a gust of motivation and feeling all positive that day so therefore posted the happy post and just the day after the night of the post, my day had changed abruptly in 360 degree like being thrown off the cliff. Dont get me wrong, I might excessively make it sound catastrophic but come to think of it, nothing disastrous ever happened, at least it didn’t manage to happen at last but the process of waiting for it to happen caught me off guard for a short interim and ensuing with a day of complete bad mood.
Speaking of bad experience.
My friend was rambling about nobody accompany him for dinner/lunch and the whole world dumped him without any better reason but just swoosh and disappear when he ask for having a meal together. It reminds me of somebody when that somebody had a very scornful character that basically makes everyone despise him, I never talked to him before so i cant judge, but imagine typing your name in google and search, how many entry that matches your name can you find? too bad, i only had 1:( So this guy..he has 1,2,3, ....7...10 ..or 98654348904 entries that he was the protagonist in all the stories which basically give people a perception that he is mentally disorder or split personality kind of freak. So backstory, my friend isnt that extreme compare to the legendary one (I love this word, legendary, regards after one blogger who wrote on that somebody)or maybe not even a little like him. But he is like a wimpy little kid that crave for people companion, care and perhaps...love? this gives me a goosebump anyway:S. A big size person like him but looks really small to me, i dont demean him but I simply mean, he looks like a little brother. So dont get me wrong. ohya..so he is rambling about his life and blah blah...not the first time i heard but definitely the first time I divulge my heart out so barely that I didnt know if I hurt his delicate little heart or...maybe pride. Anyway, i was asking him to grow up and stop whimpering like a baby. Life isnt sunshine all the days and people has no obligation to keep you company every single minute you need them unless they are true friends and family. Speaking of which, it sounds so familiar..emm..alright, i was telling myself the exact same line some while ago. Digging very very very further down my heart, I did know how does it felt like being deserted by good friends. Believe it or not, I was walking souless in ROSS shop and cooped up in my room and cried on my last day in US because I felt like isolated from the whole world as everyone always deserve a big farewell dinner on their last day, isnt it? And the saddest thing of all is....i rang him and he sounded so busy that even make me felt so wrong to be exist in this world. But anyway, not that i blamed him. Or maybe yeah, for a little :)
anyway, time to hit my bed!!OYASUMINASAI XOXO!

I have good memories on Kimchi when i was in US. Talking about kimchi reminds me of a friend in US, ah fang, whom we always share to buy a big bottle of kimchi from HMart for just 6USD, and of coz my korean friend who was an intern when i was in US and recently converted( congrats!!!! ) anyway, he always packed kimchi for his lunch like almost everyday=.=. I swear i will sick of kimchi if i eat like him.@@
anyway, fang and i lamented over the difficulty of finding kimchi if we were back to
Everything doesn’t happen so fast as I was too lazy to make it at first, instead I tried to buy it from Jusco but guess what, 400ml of kimchi was selling at RM10.60 in Jusco!! so i abruptly gave up the thought and tried making it on last
Saturday and waited the whole paste taking the 2 full days to ferment until i store them up in fridge.
Honestly, I think my first kimchi wasn’t 100% perfect as I added too much ginger as the smell is strong but overall, I am really happy with the outcome. I expect a failure in first trial but they came out all good and tasted just like kimchi though with ginger smell:p
So tonight I use it to do the kimchi jigae that i craved for long long time.
and for the first time also, i was trying out my own recipe to cook the japanese pork mayonnaise that i always love to order if going to Yataimura.
Indeed, nothing gives more sheer happiness than doing the thing I really love and knowing that I have learnt something new again.

I have a few beauty plans ongoing because I really think I need those la..i hate flipping my old album and see how perfect my skin was and how boney I looked. And thing gets worst after I came back from Bali which basically i have nothing to flaunt except my darker skin and freckers So here is one of the millions beauty plan that I had In mine. ( The first one is of coz my sunblock la)
I spent the last friday lunch with a bunch of girlfriends, munching away our lunch at my favorite Pappa rich café before we headed to Tesco to grab some steamboat ingredient for his birthday party.
We stopped by “yu ren sheng” shop as one of them wanted to checkout the price of something that i couldnt recall, as usual I have a very terrible memory and things that I remember cannot retain long, the most will be 2-3 days. So there I spotted a vast selection of vinegar made by a mass of natural ingredient very neatly drawn up on the rack. I always
wanted to buy the vinegar as I heard drinking vinegar has become a trend for quite sometimes but due to my laziness to walk into any shop and do the survey, so I never really take any initiative to find out more. so now was the chance for me to get a close read on what are the goods it could bring.
Generally vinegar helps us in digestion and detoxification, and if you are a long term constipation sufferer, it provided the dissolved fiber that can help to relieve your constipation Besides I was educated that it helped in improving our immune system and revitalize or improve our skin texture, so if you are having a dry skin it will help our cell in absorption so the skin will be less dry. ( I made up this one /boo)
My first vinegar drink in honey and apple flavor. tasted nice and acceptable
Anyway, there are too many benefits that it could bring and i couldnt find any reason not buying it.^^
Especially when they are doing the promotion now as in buy 3 can get the vinegar in RM33 per bottle where the original price is RM52++. So we grabbed 3 bottle and shared among 3 of my girlfriends.
I never like drinking the plain water, i love water with taste and smell. So this seem to be a great chance for me to drink more water and stay rejuvenated. :) *WEE*

到达巴厘时已夜幕低垂. 迎接我们的是一个看上去很年轻很老实的到地司机。开离Denpasar 机场
在巴厘有两个非常著名看黄昏的旅游景点， 一是uluwatu二则是tanah lot.
第三天的路程更简单了。从早到中午我们只在市中心和海边闲逛。傍晚， 我们来到了这间位于Seminyak算是高级的La Lucciola 法国餐厅用餐。
上次错过了kecak dance 这次说什么我都一定要来。Kecak Dance是巴厘的其中一个民族舞蹈。说的是邪灵被制伏而皆大欢喜的故事，也是老掉牙的童话故事。
