"Marley & Me"

Few days ago, me & my hubby went to watch the movie "Marley & Me". I'm not going to write about the story here and you may find out more details about the movie from the link. I like and enjoyed the movie very much.

It has the love and the romance for a relationship. It reminds me that I've been married to almost a year. Time flies! I do enjoy the couple life at this moment (exclude the housekeeping & ironing). We do enjoy the freedom of life every moment. With just 2 of us, we can plan for anything with no hesitation. I'm very excited and so looking forward of my upcoming trip to Bangkok in March. That is to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary cum my birthday! Hope I'll have a great time in Bangkok! At the same time, I also hope that I can have chance to visit Bali this year!

This movie also has the passion, love and caring towards the dog. The puppy is so cute. My family used to have a dog at home but due to some reason we have to send the dog away after few years. It was very sad and from then I told myself that I will not have a dog on my own. It's really kinda hard to let go when you have spend all the happy & sad moments with. It can really become so close to you and be a great listener. Yes, the dog will never argue with you! :)

When life moves on, of course family commitment will start to kick in. The couple in the story then have their own kids later in the part of their life. It's so true about juggling between family, work, and your own life. I think argument, fighting, etc are definitely no exception in ALL families. Parenting is never easy, especially for the working mother. I grew up in a family that full of love and I also want my kids to have the same/better experience when they grow up. Hopefully I can be a great mom and not to spoil my kids so much! God Bless!

Hope you will like this movie too!

bad service @ one of the stall @ PJ 19 food planet

due to the rain, me & my hubby went to the neighbourhood food court that has a shelter car park for dinner. i had ordered a 'kum heong pork rice' from this 'specia rice stall'. while my food being served, my hubby paid the staff RM10, the cost of the food is only RM6. So, of course we were waiting for the balance of money to give us back. When I was about to finish the rice, my hubby asked me whether we have receive back the change. I told him no. Usually it will not take a such a long time for them to give you back your change. Once done with dinner, i waited for a while more. I saw the staff served food to others and she din't stop by at my table. So while my hubby still eating his noodles, I walked to the stall to ask for my change.

I approached the chef @ boss of the stall. I told him the situation. Then he asked the staff and the staff told him that she had given me back the balance. I was shocked! At that time, there were 2 customers trying to figure what to order from the stall. So the chef @ boss told me he is just in change of cooking, the rest of the matter he doesn't know. And the staff insisted that she has pay me back. I then asked when, where & how much? Then she wasn't able to asnwer me back. I told the boss i paid RM10 and the food only cost RM6, and I don't have my balance back. The boss asked me to ask other people. I was like "what?, why do I need to ask other people while I order the food from your stall and your staff served me the food & took my money!" I think then the boss not happy and don't know how to deal with the situation, he then at the very unfriendly tone & gesture, he said "kasih dia balik duit!". He repeated twice to the staff. After I got my money and i walked away with a furious mood. And i swear that I will not order the food from him anymore!

marketing gimmick?

a friend informed me that there is a promotion by a japanese restaurant in town from 21 feb till 29 mar. it offers 50% discount for lunch on sunday and dinner on saturday and sunday. so it took me few days to consider and finally i rang the restraurant yesterday and i was told that all the slots from 21 feb till 29 mar have been fully booked! I was shocked to hear that and the person over the phone repeat again. I then informed my friend about it and we were quite disappointed. But well... what to do?

I am wondering whether do they set a quota for this promotion? Or they capacity is not big to cater lots of people? Or we do have tons of japanese food lovers out there?

so my advice/suggestion to my friend is in future, without second thought, we should call up and reserve first, being kiasu rather than sorry later when there is no more vacancy! hahaha...

starting point as a blogger

BLOG? YES! what about blog, blogging & bloggers?

i've many friends into blogging since few years back and it did not trigger me to start my own blog. Until recently, there is a power behind me to urge me to start blogging and so, here I am now!

It's not that easy to write especially when you do not have anything specific in your mind that you want to share with people being known or unknown to you. I think it's a good way to start this blogging trend to express myself from the pressure of work, marriage life, my family and yet to be parenthood!
Do pardon me if there is any mistake being made for a beginner, be it silly or serious. I do open & welcome comment/suggestion. FYI, this site of mine has no intention to harm/hurt anyone out there! :)

To start my blog, i had difficulty to think of a distinctive name for my blog so that it's different from others and meaningful to me. I believed using my own name is unique enough and hence here's my blog Congrats to myself on the first move and i wish to share more about myself with you out there! Nice to meet you :)
