A Short Story to Share-Family

I read this forward mail the other day and found it very meaningful so i decided to share here. Usually i'll just read and delete those forward mail but this particular one really caught my attention.

:. I ran into a stranger as he passed by. Oh, Excuse Me PLease was my reply
:. He said: Excuse me too, I wasn't watching for you.
We were very polite, this stranger and I. We went on our way and we said goodbye.

At home a different story is told. How we treat our loved ones, yound and old.Later that day, cooking the evening meal, my son stood behind me very still. When i turned, i nearly knocked him down.
:. Move out of the way, I said with a frown.
:.He walked away, his little heart broken. I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken. While I lay awake in bed, God's still small voice came to me and said,
"While dealing with a stranger, common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse."

Go and look on the kitchen floor, you'll find some flowers there by the door. Those are the flowers he brought for you. He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue. He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise.You never saw the tears that filled his liitle eyes.

By this time i felt very small, and now my tears began to fall. I quietly went and knelt by his bed.

:." Wake up, little one, wake up" I said. "Are these the flowers you picked for me?"

:. He smiled, " I found them, out by the tree." " I picked them because they are pretty like you.I knew you'd like them, especially the blue

:. I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today, I shouldn't have yelled at you that way
:. He said, "Oh, mom that's okay, I love you anyway."
:. I said, " Son, I love you too, and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.
Morale Behind the Story:
Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the comapny we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family we left behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than into our own family, an unwise investment indeed, don't you think?

Dinner @ La Casa with Family

The only day that all my family members are available to meet up will be Saturday or Sunday since my younger sis and myself are not staying home. So these days will be the only time we could actually sit down together for some catch up from each other. Friday night, i texted my elder sis that i would like to have western food for dinner on Saturday. Minutes later, she called me up asking where i want to go. I suggested it would be easier to have it somewhere near my place. Then she suggested a few favorable spots but at the end we have reached a concensus, which is Ken's Cafe @ Menjalara. It's a cafe where we used to hang out few years back. So it's all set and i informed my parents about the plan.

We have planned to meet up there at 7 p.m sharp as my elder sis would have to come back from Bangsar and i will be going there with my parents. It's sad to say that my younger sis was not able to join us cos she has to stay back in hostel and busy preparing for her coming finals. Gambateh neh~

As soon as i approaching the cafe, i was shocked to see the name of it has changed to La Casa. It is more obvious to me that the cafe has changed ownership after me and my sis analyzed the menu. Each of us ordered drinks then started to place the order.

We ordered those food to share around. We ordered this Caeser Salad as the appetizer. The vege is quite fresh, and there's my favorite boiled egg being sliced and small sweet tomato. It's just like any other ordinary Caeser Salad that you could get in other western restaurants.

After the appetizer our main course was served, the Dory Fish Spaghetti. This is ordered by Stanley. Personally i like the fish coz it's very fresh and smooth. The fish just seems to melt in my mouth~ HEAVENLY!

After the first main course, the second main course will be the Grilled Black Pepper Lamb Steak. There's 5 pieces of grilled lamb steak and it is served with mashed potato as well.

Mr. Stanley is serving us the lamb steak and he asked me to take a snapshot of him.Thanks alot.

Here comes my order, the Tomato Marinara Spaghetti. The reason i ordered this was because i am a seafood lover, from the menu i can see that the spaghetti was served with fresh prawns, clams, fillet, mussels, yummie~

Definately there will be pizza since we are here for it's famous cuisine. We ordered one 9'' pepperoni beef pizza to share around. The cook was preparing our pizza and the oven was just next to our table, so i could see clearly what he was doing and he smiled when i wanted to took a snapshot. He was kind enough to ask whether i need to take a closer shot with the pizza in the oven. I rejected coz it would be very troublesome.

Ta-dar~our freshly baked pepperoni pizza. It is very thin and cheesy, totally different from the pizzas selling at pizza houses in M'sia. This is what a real pizza like and taste!

Our last dish for the dinner was Lasagna. Hm,that's Garfield favorite! I would say the Lasagna here is not that good as I have tried much better Lasagna elsewhere.

Soon after we finished the meals, we decided to buy back some chicken wings from the restaurant nearby as we're still not getting enough of food :p My dad suggested to open a bottle of wine while eating the chicken wings. Had a great night with my family, planning to go some other places for "makan" again. So stay tune for my "makan" blog~haha..

Heart Of Greed

Nowadays, my only entertainment after a long and tedious day of work will be watching series either using my notebook or my darling's pc. After a hot shower, both of us will be holding our plates filing with our dinner and cutlery, and start watching the series.

The recent one that i have finished was "Heart of Greed". ( Chinese: 溏心風暴 ) It is a high-rating 40 episode drama series which aired from April 9 to June 1, 2007 in Hong Kong by TVB. I think some of you guys have already watched it before i do, coz i'm too outdated :( No more downloading series after i start working. It's worth watching and thanks to my younger sis for getting me the series from her friend.


Tong Yan Gai owns a sea-products store. He has 4 children; On, Yat, Foon and Yun. He is married to two wives; Hau and Kam. Together, the Tong family run a happy family, full of laughter. However, Kam thinks that she has no power in the family and becomes a woman full of greed. She seeks the family fortune and in order to do that she causes trouble in the family. Hau, a wise lady pulled the family back together and turned their frowns into smiles. Unfortunately, Hau's cancer comes back and she dies leaving her struggling family behind. On likes a girl named Sheung Joi Sum but she always loved Alfred, a lawyer. She soon starts working at Lau and Kwan (where Alfred works) and they became very close. Yat dates a model named Jackie, which was married, but soon after a lot of difficult challenges and with Hau's help (before she passed away), they became couples and Jackie gave birth to a baby girl, Sam Tong. It seems like a peaceful family, but Kam starts planning evil ideas with Sum's brother Sheung Joi Duk and together they cause a lot of trouble in the family. Their evil plans begin to work and at last after Gai died from stroke, they challenge the family at court for the family fortune. The family is in mayhem for once and they have only one person who can help them, Sheung Joi Sum.

Home Sweet Home

During May, my house had undergone renovation after the one we had for my room 1 year ago. Now both the living room and kitchen have changed to plaster ceiling, new lighting and air conditioned. Besides, we also rearranged the positioning of furniture in the living rooms to make it look more spacious and cozy.
The whole renovation process took around 3 weeks time, from wiring, plaster ceiling ,installation of new lighing and air conditioner to re-paint the house. My parents purposely chosed that period of time so that my younger sister and I were forced to supervise the whole process because we were on holiday.
Despite all the noise in the days and the dust all around the place, I like the new look of my house. I have taken some picture during the renovation but the camera is not with me so i cannot upload it here now to share with you guys. But, i managed to ask my sister to send me 2 pictures that she took with her SE of the finishing work. For those that have not been to my place before can now take a peep :p Soory guyz because the pictures just show part of it only. If you are interested you can come over to pay me a visit. *winkz* Not to mention, we, 3 sisters were given the authority to choose the lighting and the color of paint. We were very satisfied with the outcome after the renovation. Good job,sis!

My elder sis bluetooth me this song through her SE to my SE, ever since then i'm addicted to the song. Especially the prelude piano part, it's just simply amazing and my fingers move as if i'm playing the pieces my ownself :p Guess what, my darling super like this song too! After watching the video at YouTube, i decided to share this video with you peeps. Enjoy!
P/S: lyrics is attached as well.

In the light of the sun
Is there anyone?
Oh it has begun
Oh dear, you look so lost
Eyes are red and tears are shed
This world you must've crossed.

You said,
You don't know me
And you don't even care
Oh yeah
She said,
You don't know me
And you don't wear my chains
Oh yeah...yeah...

Essential yet appealed
Carry all your thoughts
Across an open field
When flowers gaze at you
They're not the only ones
Who cry when they see you

You said,
You don't know me
And you don't even care
Oh yeah
She said,
You don't know me
And you don't wear my chains
Oh yeah

She said I think I'll go to Boston
I think I'll start a new life
I think I'll start it over, where no one knows my name
I'll get out of California
I'm tired of the weather
I think I'll get a lover and fly 'em out to Spain
I think I'll go to Boston
I think that I'm just tired
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind
I think I need a sunrise, I'm tired of Sunset
I hear it's nice in the summer, some snow would be nice
Oh yeah...

Boston, where no one knows my name
Where no one knows my name
Where no one knows my name
Boston, where no one knows my name

Time Flies my surprise my last post was day before my 22nd birthday! Which means it is almost 5 months past without any update from me! Well, the only way to explain is time flies :p

Trying to change the template of mg blog but guess what, i'm way too bad in coding. Hence, after trying a few times i surrender and decided to stick to this old template until i figure out how to change to the one i like. Or, if there's anyone who is kind enough to help me out.

Will try to re-post some of the events in my past few months if i'm available k..
