All I want for Christmas is....

Hi folks!

I wonder if you are busy choosing or thinking what Christmas gift to get for your loved ones like I do?

First in my list is pressie for my children ;)

And top on my list for my kids are decent and comfortable shoes! 

DH & I have been shoes-hunting as much and as many outlets as we can remember. Almost every shopping malls we went, we would check out the shoes section!

Our kids have "fleshy" foot, for KY, for e.g. those princess-like shoes looks real pretty but they are not comfy enough for KY. Each time was like fitting and scouting for Cinderella :P and KY did not fit into those princess glass shoes!!

Same goes for Shone. His first shoe size when he reaches one year old was size 5! A toddler size. I only found a suitable shoes after visiting 3-5 shops. And guess what that shoes only lasted less than 4 months and it can fit his feet anymore!

And now, Christmas is All I want for Christmas (for my kids) would probably be a comfy and practical shoes to wear so that they can accompany mommy for more adventure outdoor(including shopping :D haha)

And, what's more with the crowd at the shopping malls, shopping online is so much more comfy and manageable. And as I browse around, I found this particular site that has range of Baby Shoes  that fits the bill. It has such great varieties of design and some of them looks exactly like what I have worn when I was a kid.

I simply love such shoes because it is very durable and very practical to wear to many different functions. Actually, choosing the right shoes is very important not only to adults but to children too.

Below is a video that illustrate the measure a right fitting shoes.

Wow...Santa is answering to my wishes! Now folks, Have a lovely Christmas time with your family and friends...I am off shoes-hunting and pressie-hunting now...

Gemini Reading for Year 2011

Hi folks!

This is the time of the year again...reflection time and also projection time :) haha...

It's been a habit of mine to check out the reading for the coming year whether is my Star sign or animal sign.

It's more for fun and reference. (I take note of the warning and beamed at the blessings :D)

So, here's my Gemini reading for year 2011 taken from TheStar Horoscope:

Year 2011 Outlook for Gemini

Overall Fortune
Gemini expects to have a smoother year in 2011. For Gemini born before the 10th of June your efforts will be eventually appreciated and you will get promoted. Overall Gemini will encounter less stress in 2011 than in the previous years. Remain confident and industrious.

You expect to see your efforts pay off in 2011. However Gemini should remember to keep a balanced attitude. Do not get too proud.

Everything expects to be in favour of Gemini on career development in 2011. Keep your eyes open for new opportunities and deal with difficulties with a calm attitude. Do not get too impatient. Learn to pay attention to what you do and avoid doing anything that might bring you trouble later.

Relationship and marriage
Gemini might feel at loss after a relationship. Remember that relationship is mutual. Do not get too impatient and anxious. Keep cool-headed.

Money management and investment
Gemini should learn to take one step at a time. You expect too much at the beginning by making risky decisions. Do not become too changeable and do not follow the trend. Learn to think and act cautiously. Improve yourself and try to make friends with similar interests. Gather your fortune with an honourable manner.

One can not make good achievements by changing his goals continuously.

Ok this is an important one....time to set my goals(recycle the ones yet to achieve this year as well! :P ) now and stick with it throughout the year! Wait till I cross check my 2010 goals :D


Discounts on all highways until Dec 31

Hi folks!
Saw the above title at The Star Online here

All 22 highway concessionaires(do you know which are theyt?) are currently giving between 5% and 37% toll discount in the form of cash and rebates until Dec 31 in conjunction with the Christmas and New Year celebrations.

I think they should offer till 1 Jan 2011... :) who knows the queue might be making the time drag till next year....??!!
Cheers and wow..can't help expressing it's new year soon!

Winter Solstice (Dong Zhi)

Hi folks!

Today is the annual Winter Solstice (Dong Zhi) festival
celebrated by Chinese. For many families, Winter Solstice (Dong Zhi) is
even bigger than the Chinese New Year.To Chinese, it is traditionally
celebrated at the beginning of winter to remind of another year gone by, and
for one to look forward to the new year. We are considered older one year
after each Dong Zhi.

Typically, on this day, we will make Tang Yuan (glutinous rice ball). My mom
will make the the sweet syrup either from rock sugar or brown sugar and add
pandan leaves and ginger.

Nowadays, Tang Yuan can be bought in supermarkets. They are available in all
sorts of fillings, e.g. in black sesame paste, red bean paste, groundnut
paste, etc. Some stalls would also sell ready-made Tang Yuan dough where you
can just purchase and roll into ball shape for those who still like to
experience the making of Tang Yuan ball without spending time to make the

So, how did you spend your Dong Zhi? Did you make your own Tang Yuan or buy

No matter how we celebrated, I hope 2011 will be a better year for everyone,
a self-awakening year and a proactive year whereby everyone believes in the
power and the role we can play to make this earth a better place to stay!
Every single steps and thoughts we generate affects this tiny earth we all
call our "Home".

Hi folks!

I am truly glad to find that the theatre development in Malaysia (in particularly in Kuala Lumpur) is getting more and more vibrant!

Recently came across another performance called Octopus at The Star Online here.

Venue: Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre

Date: Now until Dec 22, 2010


Content: It starts off with Kevin and Blake, a young and good-looking couple, invite the older and more experienced Max and Andy to their place for a night of fun.

Despite their reservations, nervousness eventually gives way to excitement, and after some initial awkwardness, the two pairs click. Before they know it, some clothes come off (to the delight of many of the women and gay men in the audience) and a night of pleasure ensues.

For more details of the story, check out the write up at The Star Online here.

Starring: Malik Taufiq (left) and Will Quah

'Octopus' is on at Pentas 2, KLPac (Jalan Strachan, Off Jalan Ipoh, Sentul Park), until Wednesday.

Showtime is 8.30 nightly and tickets are RM38 and RM25 (students). Call 03-4047 9000 or visit

 Cheers to the theatre and art performance in Malaysia!

MAS flights to London disrupted

Hi folks!
Christmas is approaching and many people are heading back to their hometown to celebrate Christmas with their family and friends...
Today I read about the news that two flights to London's Heathrow airport.are cancelled and passengers are requested to re-book their tickets on other MH flights. They are MH2 from Kuala Lumpur to London scheduled to depart at 11.55pm yesterday and flight MH3 from London to Kuala Lumpur scheduled to depart at 10.50am today.
One of my UK friend (Charlotte) is heading back last Saturday to visit her family and friends. I hope she managed to catch the flight and arrive safely.
For more information about the flight disruption, passengers taking MAS airline are advised to check their flight status at or call MAS Call Centre at 1-300-88-3000 within Malaysia or +603-78433000 outside Malaysia, before proceeding to the airport.
However, AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer Azran Osman Rani said all AirAsia X flights would be operating normally.

He said the Air Asia X D72009 had to land at Birmingham Airport on Saturday as Stansted Airport was congested when planes which were supposed to land at Heathrow were diverted to Stansted, resulting in passengers being delayed for 20 hours.

A statement issued by Stansted airport's website,, said the airport is open and does not have any periods of snowfall forecast for today.

Hope the heavy snowfall will back to normal soon.
Merry Christmas to everyone and have a safe and bless homecoming!

Power CEO Vegans

Hi folks!
Today is 15th day of 11th month on lunar calendar and many Buddhist will practice vegetarian diet today.
I started from having vegetarian meal every 1st and 15th with my mom when I was 8 years old. And ever since turning into full-time vegetarian diet when I was 14, my gastric problem gradually  reduced to zero. 
In recent years, there are more and more people adopting plant-based diet for eco-conscious reason.
I read that in US alone, 17% of the population are on plant-based/vegetarian/vegan diet! Below are some notable Power CEO Vegans!
Power CEO Vegans
.1. Steve Wynn, American casino resort and real-estate developer who has been credited for re-surging and expanding the Las Vegas Strip in the 1990s
2. Russell Simmons, co-founder of hip-hop label Def Jam and creator of clothing lines Phat Farm, Argylculture, and American Classics
3. Former President Bill Clinton, who now runs the William J. Clinton Foundation
4. Bill Ford, Executive Chairman of the Board for Ford Motor Company
5. Biz Stone, co-founder and creative director of Twitter
6. Joi Ito, venture captalist, CEO of Creative Commons, and General Partner of Neoteny Labs
7. John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market
8. Mort Zuckerman, real estate magnate
9. Mike Tyson, yes the Mike Tyson, who has traded ear-biting for pigeon tending in Arizona
10. Alec Baldwin, who plays a CEO in 30 Rock, but also keeps a public profile off-screen in animal rights activism
Now, being vegetarian or adopting plant-based diet is no longer consider a taboo, but it's very much the healthy and environmental-friendly trend now.
Everyone can start from a single step by taking a pledge to reduce meat intake, a meal per day or one day weekly! For the sake of this earth and your health too!

BlackBerry narrowly beats iPhone?

Hi folks!

Before I start using iPhone(much thanks to DH who gave me an iPhone as my birthday present), I am not so much into smartphones, gadgets and apps. And, for all you know, I might not even change my Nokia 3210(also a gift from then boyfriend and now hubby) if not it starts malfunctioning then.

After using iPhone, I am marvelled at how user-friendly and the enormous applications that comes with it. And, it did not stopped me from checking out BlackBerry though, being curious I am over the nearest smart phone rival....

I got to know Blackberry is adopted mostly by business executives while iPhone is mostly to geeks. But if I(and my kids) were to make a choice between iPhone and Blackberry, it would be iPhone.

Now, coming to the news I read few days ago..."BlackBerry narrowly beats iPhone??!!"...of WOW!!! That must comes from the purchasing power of the Business people....and of course the fact that it is doubtless quite good for e-mailing....and chatting amongst BB user.

Now,Out of curiousity..hehe..if your phone starts malfunctioning now, which smartphone would you choose to buy? Will u pick iPhone or Blackberry?

Like to hear from you all! :)
