Jun's farewell + Je's 24th @ Zouk KL

Saturday night was the second night in a row that I stayed up late to go out eversince my healthy lifestyle commenced. It was a night out at Zouk KL with my brothers, cousins and also friends. Why did I go to a club when exam is so near? Shouldn't I be cramming at home? I know these questions are making me guilty too, but my brother is flying off next Tuesday for a job training in Luxembourg, I won't be seeing him for a while, plus this is the first time I will be hanging out and just having fun with so many people that I love and related to.

It's all farmiliar and at the same time comforting :). I love being in my comfort zone.

 My brother, Jun whom I won't be seeing for a while.

I haven't took a proper picture with him in a while, even the one we took were kind of blur because of the lighting problem. Even so, I'm grateful to my cousin, Min (: Thanks to Min, I have a recent photo with my brother whom I won't be seeing for a while (: 

It was a legendary night in Zouk, glad Jun had fun during his farewell and god knows where they went and what they did post-Zouk. Not forgetting that, happy birthday to Je and also to those having hangover or had hangover, get well soon! I personally am struck down with fever and sore throat. All my long lost friends a.k.a sicknesses had somehow found their way towards me once again. I must get well soon because if I don't do well for exams, somehow or somewhat the blames would be put on the sickness itself and it's so totally UNCOOL ):

Last but not least, whatever happened in a club stays there (:

Yours truly.

Heading out xoxo!

An evening of live jazz with the Patrick Terbrack Quartet @ No Black Tie

I have a weakness for good music and of course, great company. My classmates and I have been talking about attending a live jazz performance for a while,  since even before our mock exams. Finally, one of us, the kind Grace, got around to checking the website out and after much discussion, we booked a table for yesterday night, the 22nd of April 2011, to watch the Patrick Terbrack Quartet play in No Black Tie.

Below is the official poster for the event.

The quartet, not including the pianist in the picture because he was sitting far far left.

Notice the white shirt drummer? I think it's quite impressive because he's a JAZZ drummer and he's only 18!

sax & trumbone duo, complement each other so well that my jaw dropped.

It was a very impressive and fantastic performance I must say.

They started at sharp 10.30pm and  I think it went on until 1am++. I left at 1am though. Their performances were very relaxing and carefree, they totally know their stuffs! I was blown away by their creativity with the sax, trumbone, drums, bass and of course piano :). I didn't enjoy myself very much because I was struck with tummy problem around 11pm :(. It's like I only heard like 20 minutes of their performances and then booom! I was in pain until 1am++. Kind of it's my own fault la, shouldn't have drank the alcohol before taking my dinner, but they serve my dinner so late lah :(. I was thirsty, how was I supposed to know a sip of tequila would do that to my poor tummy?

Okok, enough of the whiny stuffs, back to the awesome quartet. It was held at No Black Tie, a small double storey kind of house on Jalan Mesui, located in the hearts of KL I shall say. Inside, it's quite small and it could accommodate up to 40 pax I think. I also think that jazz is not everyone's cup of tea, that night itself, the crowds consist of mostly classy caucasians and chinese.

We were the odd one out, we looked like 14 lost law students found ourselves trapped in a jazz concert XD.

Shall share some group pictures we took :)

from left to right : Me, Jack, Grace and Rachel a.k.a the gossip gang :P

me and Jack the mimbo LOL.

Group picture yo :)

Everyone dressed up so nicely for the night :)

We left around 1am even though the performances were still going on, that's because some of us have curfew :(, and I was in so much pain that I think i'd be a nuisance with my head down on the table while the quartet is performing two tables away from my table :X.

I wanna thank everyone for making this awesome outing happened!

Also, would like to thanks Faiz for driving me to and fro even though he lives temporarily in KL now.

mmm, ALSO THANK YOU SO MUCH JACK, for walking with me to the mini market to get my tummy medicine in a sea of clubs and people from various backgrounds.


OH, thanks Rachel for bunking over at my house, had an awesome sleepover withchu :D

So people, if you have a thing for Jazz, or you would just like a change of environment, or just wanna try something new, maybe can head on to to check out their events date. It's not a bad choice to choose to spend an evening listening to live jazz you know :). They are really awesome at what they do, however cover charges may differ and time of the performance varies.

For the one we went, it was RM30 per person for the cover charge and the food & beverages were a bit expensive. However, you can opt to just order a drinks there and listen to jazz all night then head out to the mamak for food after the performance XD.

Yours Truly.

Thank you for reading :)

Premiere Screening of Fairly Legal @ Ecoba

I was one of the ten lucky winners for the premiere screening of 'Fairly Legal', an english legal series by the Diva Universal and the MSN Entertainment Malaysia. I was allowed to bring a friend with me, so I decided to bring Felicia with me :), always my kaki hang out XD.

This is the poster for the series. 

  "Fairly Legal" is a television series starring Sarah ShahiMichael TruccoBaron Vaughn, and Virginia Williams. Basically this series is about Kate Reed (a really attractive woman) changes her profession from lawyer to mediator and works at the San Francisco law firm her father started. Well, to know more, do tune on Ch702 to watch the premiere show at 9pm on May 5 (Thursday)

Oh guess what, we bumped into Caroline Ng there :), was great meeting her for the first time. The world is such a small place really, I just commented on her pan mee post like a few days ago, and then there i met her for the first time. She's a really sweet girl I must say. 


The emcee of the night was Serena C, and the screening kind of started late. I didn't take many pictures, mostly was Felicia with her compact camera and Caroline with her fancy DSLR :P. She was invited by Kelvin Tan. Then, later their friends, whom I only recognized one of them as Rebecca Saw came and join us. 

Oh well, not much food were served. We only got to have the chips, breadsticks and also some gourmet finger food.

Drinks were free flow though, only three choices, beer/wine/orange cordial. Needless to say, I drank orange cordial LOL.

The event was ok la, kind of crappy la because NO DINNER :(. SAD RIGHT. but ok la, the show kind of nice la, I left at 9pm sharp though lol. Ok la, time to steal some pictures from Caroline's blog LOL, because I didn't take any :(

Serena C as emcee

Us :)

Oklah, that's all for now :).

I'm inspired by TED, are you (:?

''Seeing is believing, but what if you couldn't see?"

Let Caroline Casey tell you how she did it :)

"Why are you fighting so hard not to be yourself?"

Don't let anyone tell you that you can't, believe in yourself and believe in your ability.

 I learnt so much from her in this 15 minutes and still have so much to discover, about myself, the world, everything and anything. I feel so touched after hearing her story. She's really just passionate, limitless and so full of life.

So INSPIRATIONAL, I'm not that dead anymore now. I can see the hope again.

Thank you Syahirah for blogging about it :), that's how I found out about this wonderful lady here, and many other remarkable people here at TED.




I first viewed this from Syahirah, then I found another one on TED.

"What exactly is keeping us from taking part in our communities?"

It's not apathy that's keeping us even when we truly care.


 "Redefine Apathy :)."

Get involved in local politics, engage in our communities, redefine apathy (:

P.S At first when I saw TED, it makes me think about Ted from 'How I Met Your Mother". Oh just how wrong was I (: Nonetheless, I'm thankful that I click the website and watch the videos. So readers, head on over to TED now, and view all the videos, get inspired like how it happened to me (:

Of KLCC, LOP and good company.

lost the omph to blog. lost the will to live. NOT.

and I'm balding I think, hair loss speed = hair growth speed. Thus, I still have lots of hair but top of my head thinning d, gahhh stress!

am really tired of all these :(. it's holiday now. everyday same routine. sigh. been doing lots of thinking. came to no end. sigh what wrong with me?

Nevermind, anyway had a great day today :). I went for a massage this morning and then gym after that. I won't forget what my instructor said during that 1 hour session.


wahlao, really lor -.-, everyone pedalled til breathing like dogs like that, but it was worth it! I rushed home after gym to bath and get ready for P to come pick me up.

We were going to watch Rio 3D in KLCC.

Rating : 4.5/5

(The movie was really that good :), go and watch it!)

Oh did I mention I FREAKING SAW Asha Gill in KLCC?! Within distance only, she's even prettier in person! Apparently V knows her, so V walked up to her and chatted with her for a while. I was with V, that was how close we were standing! Asha Gill looked elegant :). After that, we were also planning to try and go for the concert in front Philharmonic. It's a two days concert, actually nothing much, there were Wondergirls and Hoobastanks yesterday though, today just Mizz Nina and Colby O'Donis. So ya, after our movie, we were all starved to the core! Decided to follow E's idea and have dinner in Nando's :). First time eating in Nando's! Excited much. Our food arrived fast EXCEPT for P's. He waited for like about an hour for his Chicken Espetada. We complained to the manager, but he couldn't do much as well because the waiter keyed in later -_-' Really don't know how they train themselves to deal with crowded situation, so freaking messed up! Think am not going back to the Nando's in KLCC anymore.

We had our dinner and paid then we tried to go for the concert. Epic PHAIL anyway. Cannot enter from anywhere. I think they closed up the entrance. So we stood outside and watch the screen for a while. Then P came up with ideas of where to go, either Bintang Walk, Changkat or Look Out Point. We agreed on Look Out Point, so off we went to Look Out Point. The journey wasn't that long surprisingly, just a bit congested. Walked for a bit and settled down in Cloud Nine Restaurant.

P and R shared a grape & mint flavoured shisha. The rest of us just sat there and chit chat. I really had a great time sitting there just not thinking at all, and crapping with my friends. Really needed time off for things like that. That's how I remind myself that how simple things are still able to create happiness. Just chillin around, not doing anything, not thinking anything. If it was the me few years back, I wouldn't make spontaneous decision like that to just go to places like that at night. Hell no, I think I would have been a good girl, abide by the family curfew rules and stayed home. I'm glad I chose to go out tonight :).




Here are some really cacat pictures I took with my lousy phone D:

P staring at Twin Tower 

* I think he didn't know I took this picture*


& then we arrived at Look Out Point.

P and E running up XD

tada~ KL Nightview!

So what's there to do in Look Out Point after you have finished enjoying the night view?

Time to settle down somewhere!

P played PvZ on my iPad while shisha-ing -.-


E and V's artwork lol.


V got to the point of drawing E out on the envelope.


LOL, FYI yes, we were all THAT bored.

After Look Out Point, they sent me back :) Enjoyed the ride home, who needs to go to some crowded concert when you have your very own DJ E and DJ P in the car lol? We could have whatever songs we want to hear, I swear P has the longest playlist ever. It's like he has every songs! Once and again, I'm really glad I chose to go for the movie today and also to follow them for Look Out Point after that.


From this moment onwards, it's back to reality :),

back to all the stress, quitting is not an option :).
