Light Lunch At UPR Segafredo

2 weeks ago, CY and I decided to come out to have a light lunch together.
We went to Segafredo at Upper Penang Road because we didn't know where else to go!
Initially we planned to go to Sunset Bistro in Batu Ferringhi but apparently CY didn't like that place upon reaching there so we ended up in Segafredo instead.





CY looking good with her newly bought shades!




Dining alfresco just to feel the air although it was somewhat polluted but some sun is not too bad I guess. :)



Next is our orders!
CY ordered seafood lasagna!

CY enjoying her meal!




With lotsa cheese and 2 hug shrimps baked with mushroom, tomatoes etc.


That lasagna wasn't really appetizing for a cheese lover like me.
Maybe it was because of the shrimps which I thought were quite hard.
CY didn't even manage to finish it!


As for me, I got myself a sandwich panini.
Reasons for ordering: Cheese, mushroom and affordable! ohgodwhereismybloggingmojo




The panini was alright. No expectations on panini because I've never tried before until then.


After that we headed to Sunshine Farlim to get some desserts!
No pics though! :P


On our way back! Thanks for the ride! :)




Dolled up a bit so didn't wanna waste the moment!
Super vain what to do. :P



Oh and I bought a pair of ribbon earrings from Gurney the other day!
Very feminine looking but I don't think it was worth the price I paid for. :(





What do you think?


Abrupt ending of the post with my picture!





Don't know how to put caption for my photos these days because I just feel so tired everyday.
All I want to do now is to look forward to Christmas and be merry! :D

Are You Moist Enough (II)

Remember the Vaseline event I attended in Luna Bar, KL for the Are You Moist Enough contest sometime ago in September?

Well, everyone there received a goodie bag from Vaseline and one of the lotion they gave us was a hand & nail conditioning lotion!


It comes in a small pink bottle! Very handy indeed.



Just so you know, I'm not doing advertisement for Nuffnang or Vaseline (or will I ever get the chance to looking at my number of readers) but I'm just writing this because I've been a really satisfied user of this little small bottle of lotion!

Most of my close family and friends know that I was NEVER a fan of EDT perfumes, scented lotion, etc (I don't even know what does EDT mean beside there is a toilet word in it because I don't really bother).
Somehow the scents and the smell will drive me nuts and I'll probably end up puking in your car if you ever have a Ambipur in it.
Lucky for Babe because then he'll never have to splurge on perfumes for me! Hmmph!

However, the scent from this lotion is very feminine, it gives you that girly touch as you squeeze the lotion out!


It's pink!


I've been using it everyday without fail because every time when I feel stressed (thanks to exams), it manages to give me that relaxing feeling without having to go to spa!
It's currently selling at RM8.90 in Watsons.
For a stingy student like me, I'll definitely think twice before getting a small bottle like this (100ml) for such a price but thanks to Vaseline, I'll probably buy it again once I finish using this since I love how it makes me feel!
.

Anyway, being a not-so-active twitterer (if that's even the correct way to call peeps who tweet), I came across a link shared by a friend on twitter and it was linked to a blog which was having a hot debate about how Nuffnang has been treating its Malaysian blogger poorly etc.

I'm not trying to stand up for Nuffnang or trying to put any advertising agencies down but there's one thing I'm very dissatisfied about that post is that one of the commenters said that the title "Are You Moist Enough" reminds her of the dirty jokes about using Vaseline as a lubricant.
Worst, the blogger claimed that it could be the horny teenagers who thought of the title??

Come on, call me anything, but when I saw the Vaseline contest post on Nuffnang's page, truth be told, I smirked at it for seconds before continuing to read on what are the things that Vaseline was offering the bloggers for the contest.
Dirty thoughts? Lubricant? Nonsense la.
The only thing that came across my mind was using Vaseline as a lotion for the hand, body, lips, etc.
Never have come I across anyone who told me that Vaseline makes them think of anything naughty.
Perhaps the person herself was the one with the dirty mind.

I may not know a lot of things about marketing and its strategies, but I sure know it did attract a lot of Nuffnang bloggers to join the contest and who wouldn't wanna win a grand prize of RM3k if I'm not mistaken?
That's easy money ok!
And the reason I joined the contest was because I chose to join and I have used Vaseline before the contest so I know how reputable the brand is.
Nuffnang obviously has never forced any of us to join the contest.

And whoever ask you to write review/advertisement for something you don't believe la?
In fact, being a fellow Nuffnanger for 2 years now, I've come across A LOT of female bloggers that write about the same review/advertisement.
(Oh yes, before I was a Nuffnanger, I only read my friends' blogs.)
I must admit, some sound wayyyy too scripted while some wrote it with lots of confidence and humour, which are the qualities I love about the bloggers.

Some bloggers have poor English and were never convincing at all with their stories for the review/advertisement but why do people still read their blogs?
Because they are pretty and have nice figures for the perverts to stare at. Pffft.
That, I have to disagree with Nuffnang for choosing them to blog about reviews/advertisements though because when the stories are not convincing, then there's no point of asking them to do the reviews/advertisements because they (the products) obviously have no impact on the readers.

That's why I chose to read the blogs with real substance, whether they are doing reviews/advertisements because not only I enjoy kaypo-ing around to know about their lives, I also got to know a lot of different products in the market thanks to them.
And I don't give a damn whether they are doing it for Nuffnang or Advertlets or Google, etc. because all I care about is how they make me feel at the end of the day.

I'm Back!

So if you have seen my recent fb status, you would have known that I'm in the middle of my exam period!
But now that I have 2 weeks interval, I think I should revive my blog again (with my own posts that is)!

To kick things off, I'd like to thank Kokd for being the sweetest bf EVER !
I told him that I'll be busy with my exams from November onwards and I'll have difficulties in updating my blog.
So I thought maybe he could could be my guest author to entertain my readers while I'm on a hiatus.

So he did! And he did more than what I asked for! :D Thanks, dear!

Now that I have a new blog layout with feedjit counter and an awesome blog header, I feel so elated!
Do drop me a comment or two on your thoughts about my new blog layout alright! :)

I have another 2 more papers up my sleeves, so I thought I'll just do a quick post for the meantime.
One of the days during my study week break, I went out to....I can't remember.
And I decided to use the Majolica Majorca Mascara I bought last year (which I wrote about here).
Heck, in fact, I've been using it all the while! I love using mascara! :)




If you look closely at the pictures, I only applied ONE coat of mascara.
I never like applying more than a coat because I'll feel that my lashes get pretty heavy after that or maybe I'm just lazy.
And even with one coat, I must say I'm pretty satisfied with it!
Especially when I bought this mascara in February 2009!



Super heavy eyebags and dark circles now.
No thanks to exams. :(

Maybe I should try applying more coats to get a more exaggerative look. Haha.

My lips look very pale and dry here....that's because they have always been that way!
But lately I've been extra hardworking in making sure I don't peel my lips (mostly due to nervousness fml and itchy fingers) hehe.
Will probably do a post about lip care soon!

And a last one because I'm happy with the mascara! Hehe.




ps: Credits to my sister's room because she has a full length mirror in it! But I've recently bought one for myself too! Hehe!


Be back soon loves!

What's new in my blog!

It is not that you cannot be sweet even if you babe is 10,000 miles away. There are many things that one can do to show one cares. This included! Come November 2010, if you noticed, The Chosen One has:

1) A New header!

2) A New background!

3) A Feedjit counter!

4) A Popular posts section at the end!

Enjoy the new design!

Regards,

Kokd

PS. Don't so stress with exams okay? Miss you babe!

Good Luck BB!

It is that time of the year again... Exam!

Dread it love it, it is there to test us and our capabilities. For me, an exam is just another milestone in life and in some ways, how we prepare for exams will reflect how we prepare for the other larger hurdles in our lives.

Of course, we prepare for exams by going to lectures, reading notes, reading books, solving examples and doing exercises. Thus, we learn, In the end, what results befall us would reflect the quality of our preparation, the amount which we have learnt. Should we lose motivation and falter, or lose sight on what we are aiming for, our results will show it.

Here are a few techniques of keeping the motivation:

1) Breakdown the tasks
The only way to eat an elephant is one bit at a time. Even the tinnest bacterium can finish up the elephant! Split large tasks into manageble pieces so that you can bite it up a mouthful at a time!

2) When in doubt, sleep
The brain needs sleep to regenerate vital chemicals to perform its function. After a good nap or sleep, you are more likely to feel better and be more motivated! Go hug your favourite soft toy and relax!

3) Reward yourself
Yes, studies say that we respond positively when we get rewarded for something! Give yourself a treat after you get that piece of work done! A piece of chocolate, 5 minutes nap, a movie! Be creative

4) Attack from all angles
Unfortunately, no one is perfect and it is shown that not everyone learns the same way. Some people are writers, some are readers and some of us are listeners. Hence, to really make sure everything goes in, write, read and listen on the topic!

5) Ask and find out
No one expects you to know the answer, thats why you are studying! If you feel lost, ask a friend, ask your lecturer, ask a forum, ask me! You are bound to find some useful answers!

6) Blood Circulation
Yeap, all that sitting down is not good for your brain thanks to Newton and his gravity. Suggestions: Study upside down. No la. Exercise! To study well, you need to keep a healthy body! Get up, stretch, exercise la!

So what is the point of this post? Well read on!

Relationships are a little bit like exams in the real world, it takes practice, it takes some reading, and definitely takes learning. The same applies, we need motivation to keep in the relationship and we need something we are aiming for. The results will show it.

Now read the above suggestions again and you are sure to find that all of that applies to love as well!

For my next act, I will pull a happy bb out from a hat!



PS. Good luck to BB for your exams!
