The 44th President of the United States of America


Barack Hussein Obama

Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States of America on today (20th Jan 2009). Millions are flocking over to Washington DC to witness his inauguration.

The theme of this inauguration is “A New Birth of Freedom”

The first African American President.


Hours ahead of the inauguration supporters from across the United States braved icy temperatures


Millions are expected to pour into the capital from across the country


National Mall, stretching from Capitol Hill to the Lincoln Memorial, has gathered an estimated two million people.

The inauguration will be witnessed on television by a massive global audience


With George W Bush's departure from the Capitol building by helicopter, a new era of American politics will be ushered in


The inauguration represents a milestone once unthinkable in a nation where racial segregation was practised in many Southern states just decades ago

Across the world, people are celebrating the presidential inauguration which will see Barack Obama being sworn in as America's 44th, and first black, president

Truly impressive.

And the dreams that you that to dream really do come true!

Indeed, anything is possible as long as you put enough effort and have enough faith in it.


If you listen to the rhythm of the pouring rain...

Personalisation- On a Whole New Level

Don’t we all love things which are specially designed and personalised for us? A lil something that differentiates us from others. We have personalised caller ring tones on our mobiles.

Personalised Adidas Sneakers


Personalised Ipods



Personalised golf balls

Now we’ve also got personalised ciggy packs

Although I am not a smoker but I just thought it’s really cute to get stuff personalised. It’s that lil something that makes it all yours and special.



It’s a Marlboro pack with YY’s name on it.


Proud owner of the ciggy pack.


The thing about smokers is that they will never quit. Despite economic downturn/financial crisis/epidemic they will still puff and puff. That is why I my next job will be in a tobacco industry! LOL. That way I would have job security and not have to worry about slowdown in business or retrenchment. When the economy is good.. people party and puff more.. when the economy is bad ppl get stressed out and puff more.. so either way tobacco sales will just keep growing..

Sorry's Not Enough

This song is from American Mall
It was Zwen that introduced this song to me and i am so liking ittt..
Totally my kind of music. Sad sappy love song.
ENJOY!



I'm sorry can't save a heart
When it breaks and scattered in the wind
How can two worlds cover the half
The others been living in

Oh I never believed I'd ever need
Any more than I did before

When sorry's not enough
There's nowhere left to turn
Too much to forgive
Tell me where is the answer
How do you find the strength
The strength to let it go
We need to just to leave
When sorry's not enough

Love can fall hard
Leaving the scar that remembers
How bad it burns
We won't pretend where next time begins
Cause we need just to live and learn

Although now I believe that I'm gonna need
A little more than I did before

Sorry's not enough
There's nowhere left to turn
Too much to forgive
Tell me where is the answer
How do you find the strength
The strength to let it go
We need to just to leave
When sorry's not enough

No there's no going back
And tomorrow is all we're gonna have
So we will have

Sorry's not enough
There's nowhere left to turn
Too much to forgive
Tell me where is the answer
How do you find the strength
The strength to let it go
We need to just to leave
Oh just to leave baby
Sorry's not enough

He’s just not that into you.

I have heard Oprah discussing about this issue over and over again on StarWorld and it’s finally coming to the big screen! It will be in cinemas in Feb 09 in the states but will only hit the Malaysian cinemas in April 09’. Bleh.. so outdated.


Here’s the movie trailer. Seemed like an awesome movie! A must watch!

Looks great right? He’s just not that into you is also a self improvement book written by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. The book is inspired by my all time favourite movie Sex and the City.


Cant wait to catch this movieeee~~~ anyone interested? Perhaps watching it at home on DVD and just casually chilling/lazing would be fun fun fun too!!


Hehe.. finally a love storyyyy!

Gotta be Somebody




This time, I wonder what it feels like
To find the one in this life, the one we all dream of
But dreams just aren’t enough
So I’ll be waiting for the real thing, I’ll know it by the feeling
The moment when we’re meeting, will play out like a scene
Straight off the silver screen
So I’ll be holding my own breath, right up ’til the end
Until that moment when, I find the one that I’ll spend forever with

Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There’s gotta be somebody for me like that
Cause nobody wants to do it all on their own
And everyone wants to know they're not alone
There’s somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There’s gotta be somebody for me out there

Tonight, out on the street, out in the moonlight
And dammit this means too right, it’s just like deja vu
Me standing here with you
So I’ll be holding my own breath, could this be the end
Is it that moment when, I find the one that I’ll spend forever with

Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There’s gotta be somebody for me like that
Cause nobody wants to do it all on their own
And everyone wants to know they're not alone
There’s somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There’s gotta be somebody for me out there

You can’t give up, looking for a diamond in the rough
The wind shows up, make sure you’re holding on
Cause it could be the one, the one you’re waiting on
Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There’s gotta be somebody for me, oh

Nobody wants to do it all on their own
And everyone wants to know the night alone
There’s somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There’s gotta be somebody for me out there
Nobody wants to be the last one there
Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
There’s somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There’s gotta be somebody for me out there

The love of my life

Is it possible for each and every one of us is allocated to one individual who is destined to be our true love? Do you think we have one person who would be the love of our lives? Would we meet in the craziest circumstances and fall so deeply in love and get married and have kids together? Will I ever have a chance to fall in love and grow old like Noah and Allie in the Notebook? If you didn’t already know, I am a hopeless romantic. Sappy love songs and epic love romance novels just excites me to no end. I know it’s cheesy and all but yet if a guy were to read me a poem or recite a romantic quote into my ears. My knees would instantly turn to jello. (Talk about clique!)


What if we never had the chance to meet the love of our lives? What if we end up marrying someone who isn’t our predetermined soul mate? What if our soul mate is standing right in front of our eyes and we don’t have the slightest clue? It would be totally pathetic, wouldn’t it? What if we’re secretly in love with this one person and we don’t even know it? Or worst, we’re in denial about it? *gasp!*


"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that's what you've given me. That's what I'd hoped to give you forever. I love you"


Love doesn’t have to hurt, so feel good!

The One with the New Toy!


Yes yes yes! I am getting myself a new toy! I have been saving quite a bit since I started working a yr plus ago and this is only my third big thing I have bought since (first was a Tissot watch and 2nd was my bed room set). *teee heee*


I have been wanting to get a new phone for sometime and I have been doing quite a bit of research. I want to get something that I really like and would be value for money. I am not the sort of person who buys stuff on impulse. *wink*

I considered getting an Iphone.


But I have read not so cool reviews about it too. It doesn’t come with a stylus which can make it difficult to use at times. The camera is only 2MP and it does not have a flash which isn’t cool for camwhores like me. It doesn’t have Bluetooth. You can only type comfortably with one finger, which cuts down on your typing speed. Using two hands is possible, but it's pretty crowded typing with both thumbs while holding the iPhone at the same time.. And it’s way too over priced- looking at about RM2+++k *yikes*

I considered getting Samsung F480 (Tocco)

A cool looking phone which isn’t too chunky. It’s super sleek and very lady like compared to OMNIA . It’s a touch screen phone with the basic phone functions. Camera is super as it comes in 5Mega Pixels and flash. However it does not support wifi. Cost :RM1700 which I think is super pricey for a basic phone. It also doesn’t have a stylus which makes it less stylo. :P I read that the interface is pretty laggy too.


After months of research I decided to get the LG Cookie KP500

LG cookie KP500

Super sleek and stylo it was the ad that I saw on TV that got me really really attracted to it. Check out this super cool ad! It’s like love at first sight. SERIOUSLY

The LG KP500 is a budget touchscreen phone.Comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera, a media player, an FM radio, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and a memory card slot, this phone has all the essentials. It doesn’t have 3G and wifi though.I guess i could live without 3G and wifi. I am practically online almost every night at home anywayz. It has most features that most people will want and it’s priced at only RM900. Pretty good buy don't you think?


I headed over to Queensbay the next day excitedly to get this new phone. But guess what?? Throughout the whole mall there isn’t a single shop that carries LG line of phone. (*wtf! It’s the mall which is terpangjang dan terbesar di pulau pinang and it doesn’t have a shop that sells LG phones?). I started thinking to myself maybe LG cookie and I are not fated and meant for each other and perhaps there are other better ones out there. And at that exact moment I got distracted and fell in love with the Nokia 5800 instead!


Super excited about my new toy coz it’s only arriving tonitee!!

Nokia Music Express 5800 (Tube)

This phone has got everything that I want in a phone. Touch screen and handwriting recognition, wifi, 3G, Bluetooth, 3.2 mega pixel camera with flash (essential for camwhoring), 8G memory, Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate, and other canggih manggih features! *heee heee* and it looks just as good as an iphone and it’s more user friendly. To top that off it comes with a cool stylus. What else could I ask for?

Related documentCost:Rm1400 which I think is super reasonable compared to the other models.


Will provide a review of the performance when I finally get my hands on the phone tonite. *Wink* Don’t envy me coz life is sOoOo good to me!

My Make Up Bag

Here’s a review on some of the make up and beauty care products that I am using to help you shop better. Opinions and recommendations are encouraged!


Item numuro Uno from my make up bag for this entry is my all time favorite facial wash

Vitamin C by Body Shop.


Was using this facial wash for the past 2 years. Absolutely love the tangerine scent. Very refreshing and perfect for a first-thing-in-the-morning scrub. It has the consistency of a thick cream, saturated with super-fine scrubbing particles. The micro particles are perfect for those who has problems with black heads (like I do) and the best part is it is not drying to the skin at all! However I decided to stop using it for a while coz I was getting bored with this product and was curious to find try something else.

Cost:RM50.00

Vitamin C eye reviver.

I have always have big dark eye bags and it gets worst when I don’t get my beauty sleep. I tried this product 2 years ago (the same time I tried the facial wash). I don’t think there was much difference/improvement after using it. The texture is creamy and it does not have the sweet orangey scent. *frown* stopped using it after finishing the first bottle.

Cost about AUD25. Not sure how much it cost here coz I stopped using it after I got back.


Body shop has got a wide product range of Vitamin C line. Such as Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer, Lip Care Stick, Intensive Night Treatment, Texturizing Peel( no idea what the heck this is) and bla bla bla. Have yet to try the rest but let me know if you did. Then we can share share on some beauty tips. After all a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do- ie. Looking good at all times!
