寫給男人的信

我對你毆氣,是盼望你的溫柔體貼。

我把痛怪於你,是期望你伴我度過掙扎。

我的不講理,是期待你的包容寬恕。

我要你離開,是希望你不顧一切堅持留下。。。



想聽你道歉,是測試你的誠意。

持續的爭執,是考驗你的耐性。

我的野蠻任性,唯有靠哄而不是責備來溫馴。



別說你了解,女生的痛終究超越你的想像範圍。

當我承受如此痛楚,唯一渴望的是你的疼愛呵護。

而你。。。你切悄悄的棄我而去 ,:'(



你勸我一個人冷靜,是殘忍地讓我獨自流淚。。。



分離無法解決困擾,而是讓彼此的心逐漸疏遠。



說好的明天,也許因命運的掌控永遠無法到來。


也許哪一天我不再對你毆氣。。。
那天,將意味著我對你的絕望死心

10 Unacceptable Facts About Being in Mid-20s

1. Meteor Garden which used to be your favourite drama was released 13 years ago. Now you simply feel slightly ashamed for having owned a F4 clock.


2. Your sister who was born in 1996 is already going to college this year. Last time you checked, she was still an annoying child who used to run around the house naked.

3. You have now come to the age your parents got married. Yet marriage is still something fearful you dare not foresee.

4. You force to keep yourself awake in the afternoon as afternoon naps have become a luxury you can't afford on week days.


5. Your biggest concerns are no longer assignments and exams but your bonus and increment.

6. You adjust your sleeping hour from 3am to 11pm. Waking up after noon time is now a past habit you have gotten rid of.

7. Your latest purchase of apparels consist of blazers and collared shirts instead of jumpsuits and floral dresses.



8. Petrol price which used to be a boring adult topic has now become one of your major burdens.

10. Your mother no longer lectures you about how being in a relationship could affect your studies. Instead, she pressures you to seek for a stable relationship as she worries that you might end up an old spinster.


Responsibilities and commitments. Who would have thought being in mid-20s could be so scary?

Judging and Being Judged

I have always been a judgmental biatch.

Can't help it. I am a virgo. My horoscope says that I am the master of criticisms. I am always judging and neat-picking on everyone, regardless whether they are the people I love or those I feel indifferent towards.

But being judgmental is bad. More often than not, our judgment does not entirely reflect the truth. Instead, they are hurtful and detrimental to the parties involved.

No matter how much you believe in what you see, there are always 2 sides to the story. It is unfair to have your conclusion made based on your one-sided tales. Open your eyes and try to understand things from various perspectives. You will realize that what you have seen or heard are exaggerated and distorted from the reality.

I have judged and been judged by others. I put up my strong ego and told myself that I couldn't care less about what others think, that I am least affected by what they say. But face it, no matter how strong you are, you still can't help but feeling slightly hurt and disappointed by those judgmental criticisms.

Sometimes they call you names. Names that would make your mother feel ashamed and cry. They label you names on social media even though it was done subtly. It was not meant for you to see, but you still discover it anyhow since you couldn't get rid of your curiosity.

Words of accusation that speared through your heart and made you doubt your worth. It could be uttered by acquaintances, strangers or family and friends of the one closest to you. Regardless who they are, their poisonous words haunt you night and day until whenever you truly let go.

No, I dare not publicly declare that I will stop judging from now on. Wouldn't want to be a hypocrite who go back against my own words later on. But I will learn to be mindful of my judgmental criticisms, not that I gave ascertained its impact.

The next time you judge, keep it to yourself or at least prevent it from reaching the ears of your innocent victim.

Or better still, focus on how to improve yourself to avoid being the preyed on by those vicious tongue! :)

10 Important Rules in Life


1. Learn to love yourself better. If you don’t, no one will.

2. Do not be overly bothered by what others say or think about you. Those destructive criticisms are meant to bring you down.

3. Remember that family comes first. They are the only people who will stand by you forever no matter what happens.

4. Do not lose hope despite failures. Stand up and do it better instead.

5. There is never a dead end, but many ways out for everything.  Your only concern is to figure out the best way.

6. Be independent. The one you often rely on might not be there for you the next time you are in need.

7. Buy an insurance policy. Be responsible to the next-of-kin you love.

8. Travel and see the world. There are so many new and great things the world has to offer.

9. Achieve financial freedom to enhance your happiness in life.  Money can’t buy everything, but it could surely buy you plenty.

10. Every success has a meaningful story behind. Be patient and determined towards achieving your goal in life!


The above shall serve as my self-reminder, my motivation to go on. 
I am not exactly at the best state recently. I guess this is what they call quarter-life crisis. 
I feel lost and helpless, unsure of what I desire in life. 
I could not see my future, whether I am heading towards the right direction. 
I am on this little wooden boat, sailing further and further into the mist. 
If only someone could tell me what great things awaits at the end of the horizon. Or could it be just a deserted village I am headed?

Bali Ayu Hotel & Villas - Traveller's Review

This is a short review on Bali Ayu Hotel & Villas, the place where we stayed on the first 2 nights of our Bali trip last year. Located at Jl. Petitenget, Bali Ayu is of walking distance from Potato Head Beach Club and surrounded by many other restaurants and bars. Very convenient I would say.



Let’s start off with the morning view of the villas. These were taken from our balcony in the morning.

Bali Ayu is made up of a few 2-storey bungalows with wooden interior. Our room was located on the higher floor which gave us a better view of the villas. Moving our luggage upstairs wasn’t a problem as the hotel would send someone to assist. Just make sure to tip them reasonably :)



Refreshing welcome drink upon arrival.



The passage leading to our room was rather dark. I remember Angela accidentally kicked on a cat one night when we came back after dinner. She couldn’t stop crying out of fear! Not sure whether to feel sympathy or laugh as it was rather funny XD



Our bed with a pair of swan towels and rose petals scattered around just as shown in the photos. The room was way bigger than we expected. Love the high ceiling made of cooling wood. 



Bath tub – one of the important criterion I seek for when booking a hotel. You never know when you would need a hot bubble bath.  But we didn’t manage to use it in the end la since our schedule was quite packed. Teehee.




Our shower was open air concept. Quite intriguing especially in the daytime when the sun shines upon as you shower.



Our room at Bali Ayu does not come with a private pool but the next villa we stayed does (will blog about it next). Used the public pool that night we checked in and fortunately we were the only guests!





Cheap Bintang beer from the mart.



Day bed next to the pool.



Just chilling on the lounge contemplating whether to go for a night swim.



Did I tell you that Bali is a mosquito infested island?? Thank god for repellent spray which was highly effective.





Had a quick dip at the pool before heading back to our room to reenergize for our second day.

Over all it was a pleasant stay. Breakfast was provided at an Australian football bar in front of the hotel with the choice of continental or local food. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. And not to mention, the room was definitely up to standard for the affordable price we paid!

Crazy Crabs @ Oasis Square, Ara Damansara

Crazy Crabs, a casual crab restaurant at Oasis Square, Ara Damansara is the newly opened by the guys behind Tom, Dick & Harry’s, Ali, Muthu & Ah Hock and The Royal Flush.



Located right opposite The Royal Flush facing the beautiful fountain, Crazy Crabs has a more casual setting in comparison.



Thanks to Crazy Crabs, we had the privilege to try out a variety of cuisines served in their menu.



Ice cold Asahi Super Dry to pair with the crabs we were about to taste! (RM24 for a big bottle)



The first dish of the night was none other than Yee Sang as it was right before Chinese New Year.

Salted Baked Crab – RM80/kg


No doubt my favourite style of cooking as it preserves the crab’s flavor. You could really taste the sweet and juicy flesh contrasting against the salt.


Kam Heong Crab – RM80/kg


A popular Malaysian stir-fry style which was really delicious too!


Butter Milk Crab – RM80/kg


There is generous amount of creamy milk sauce for the crab and you could even order some toast bread to dip it with!



Fried chicken wings – RM3/piece


Lamb – RM20 (small), RM40 (medium), RM60 (large)


The lamb was very well marinated!


Curry Fish Head – RM60 (small), RM80 (medium), RM100 (large)


Cooked with those fresh fishes from the aquarium, the curry was rich and full of ingredients. Best to go with some rice!



Lala Mee Hoon – RM14 (small), RM18 (medium), RM24 (large)



Anchovy Fried Rice – RM12 (small), RM16 (medium), RM25 (large)



So much food for so few of us! Pampered like kings and queens! LOL. Of course, there was also kangkung served as a recognition of the government’s effort in ensuring the low kangkung price XD



Dessert of the day which varies from day to day. It was shaved ice over lime jelly this time. Very refreshing after a heavy meal!



Full and satisfied bloggers together with the bosses of Crazy Crabs. Thank you for the crazy feast!
