Because Girls Are Beautiful

So Valentine's Day has passed about more than a month ago and I've only had time to blog about it now..pfft.

Anyway, this year's V Day fell on the 5th day of the Lunar Year and if you're wondering how we spent it, it was in the car driving back from Penang to KL and oh, meeting Daphne Iking in person!! *fan girl mode*

To me, V Day is just like any other day of the year..except that florists get more business on this very day and girls feel like they should be more pampered on such an important date of the year - which I, of course agree because girls should always feel pampered, every single day!

To guys out there, here are some tips to make your girls feel pampered and loved (and these do not apply only on special occasions):

i) surprise her when she least expects it
   It is a norm for everyone to expect something to be done on a special day (eg: birthday, V Day, 
   anniversary), but if you carry out the surprise on a normal day, I believe she'll appreciate it even more than
   all those annual occasions.

ii) take initiative to bring her to try new things /do things she likes
    After some time, things will become a routine. Try to spark the feelings up by doing things she might like
    (yes, I'm speaking on a girl's behalf so it's gonna be what she likes) which you usually won't do with her.
    It can be as simple as shopping but just make sure when you shop with her, don't sit by the side playing
    with your gadget. At the very least, give her some opinions so that she can choose the exact opposite if
    she knows you have bad taste.

iii) do not use the word "Chill" whenever she gets anxious or nervous about things you do
     This is something I borrowed from Mynn from Red FM. Babe uses "Chill" all the time at me whenever I
     tell him that he's using the wrong road or he should not do this or that. It pisses me off every time
     because girls basically don't like that. He never changes anyway.

............that's all for now I guess. I need some time to complete the list.

But will the list ever end? I wonder..........

But of course, these are from my personal experiences and opinions which a lot of guys seem to be ignoring especially when they have been in a relationship for many, many years.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a great V Day!

Thanks for the bouquet!

Sight Seeing Sydney!

Back to my holiday post on Australia (all these photos are making me eager for my upcoming holiday!!), after we have had enough of Gold Coast (who am I kidding, how can I ever get enough of the beach!), time to fly off to SYDNEY, baybeh!!!

Of all the places we stayed in Australia, I LOVE the serviced apartment in Sydney the most. If I am not wrong, it's not as expensive as the apartment with stayed in Melbourne and most important of all, it's really nice, clean and cosy!! Hmm should probably adopt that kind of style in my future house!

Meriton Serviced Apartments at Campbell Street - totally RECOMMENDED!

TV Set


We reached Sydney at about 3-ish in the afternoon and we only had 1 night in Sydney..yup you heard that right. Can't afford to waste anymore time so right after checking in, we changed and ready to do all the touristy stuff which of course includes the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge!

Great weather to be walking around the city.

A bank in Sydney. Would love to work in such different environment! :P

In front of one of my favorite brands although I haven't bought any Burberry stuff yet. Haha.

One of the things on my to-do list in Australia is to visit Koko Black and Max Brenner, both are very famous chocolate shops in Australia. I managed to visit Koko Black when we were in Melbourne but I was dying to try the hot chocolate in Max Brenner! Lucky for me, we walked pass Max Brenner while on our way to the Harbour Bridge!

Someone looking smart~

Took a snapshot with the bald man.

Nice settings in the restaurant.

Lovely chocolates at Max Brenner.

Signature hot chocolate. Got it at last!! :D

After which we continued our journey to one of the must-visit spots in Sydney - Harbour Bridge!
Unfortunately, the walkway to the middle of the bridge was closed and we only managed to take some photos with the awesome-looking buildings.

One of the few best shots taken at the Harbour Bridge. #OOTD: Dress from Topshop.

Next place we visited was the Opera House! Love how the place was still pretty much alive although it was already kinda late..

Hello Harbour Bridge! You look stunning!

Waiting for my risotto.

Love the color of this photo!

If you notice the amount of people below where I was standing was crazy! These are the people who were just chilling and enjoying the beautiful scenery, ahh, my kind of people! :D

With dear.

Breathtaking Sydney skyline.

We spent a couple of hours at the Opera house and its surrounding area just to take in as much as we can before we left Australia the next day.

It's such a shame that our time in Australia was so short but nonetheless, it's left a big mark in my heart that Australia is hands down a nice place to live in.

If I were to choose, I'd prefer Melbourne because I love the hustle bustle of city life although it'd be nice to unwind once in a while in places like Gold Coast while Sydney...let's just say I need to come back to Sydney again!!

That's the end of my Aussie adventure last year! Can't wait to pay Australia another visit in the near future I hope! :)

When I Was Your Man

When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars

Same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio, but it don't sound the same
When our friends talk about you all that it does is just tear me down
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name
And it all just sound like uh, uh, uh

Hmmm too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours when I had the chance
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby is dancing, but she's dancing with another man.

My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes
It all just sounds like uh, uh, uh, uh

Too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
Should have gave all my hours when I had the chance
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby is dancing, but she's dancing with another man.

Although it hurts I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know
I hope he buys you flowers, I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours when he has the chance
Take you to every party cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done when I was your man!
Do all the things I should have done when I was your man!
