Bamboo and Wooden Chicks?

We were at the traffic lights on Jalan Pudu and took the opportunity to check out all the dodgy looking hotels along the road. What caught our eyes was the shop (pic above). They sell Bamboo and Wooden Chicks, what on earth is that? Seriously, what do they actually sell? If anyone could read mandarin please do translate it for us.

For one moment, someone in the car suggested they are probably selling blow-up dolls made out of wood and another asked "wouldn't that cause splinters?", "Oh, no said the other. It's eco-friendly and made out of good splinter-free wood". Yeah, we had a good laugh as we drove past.

What ever Mr. Thye Fah Liki is selling surely got us interested. Unfortunately, the number on the sign board is old...hmm...perhaps I could call up TM tomorrow and get the latest number just to find out what do they sell.

Oh, could it be the bamboo mannequin chicks? You know those that tailors use to model their clothes, this is used way before plastic mannequins were invented.

You're Leaking!!

Not too long ago, my best buddy Jason and I went to Bangsar for lunch. To solve the frantic search for a parking space we decided to park at Bangsar Village instead and since it was still 11am it wasn't a problem finding an empty lot.

We happily parked our car and was walking towards the exit. About 100 metres from where we were, I saw something that caught my attention, a couple walking in the opposite direction, very loving and clingy. Well that wasn't that interesting to watch, what actually caught my attention was the little paperback that the guy was carrying, no it wasn't unique or pretty or good to look at or anything like that but the interesting factor was leaking.

Whatever that was in there is obviously not meant to be carried the way he was carrying it, he was happily swinging the paperback as though he wasn't aware what's in it.

As we approached, I pointed to his paperback and said "Excuse me, you're leaking", he peaked into his paperback and exclaimed "Oh shit!!". It was his coffee that was spilling all the way from the entrance/exit to where we were and it's about 50 metres. Oh well, at least he only lost half a cup of coffee and he can still see his cup half full and not half empty.

I mean, really if you know you are carrying liqiud that could possibly spill why on earth are you swinging your paperback??

Jason then pointed out "Did you know, you just told him that he was leaking" hahahaha I know I realized how wrong that sounded, but that didn't seem to bother him though.

Note to self :
If you are taking your coffee/tea or whatever drinks on the go. Hold them with your hands and not in a paperback or bag or whatever that could make it spill.

The return....will it be for good??

I have been missing for almost a year now, a lot has happened in the past 11 months and now I'm finally back. Just imagine I started this blog same time last year and it went well till March and I went missing. Now I'm back!! I hope I can continue with it till end of the year hehehe....

Let me just fill in some insights of what happened in the past 11 months....I quit my job and started my own company. I work from home and I spend more time with Sparkle. If you have forgotten who Sparkle is, she is my doggie, my best friend and my daughter. Business is doing fine and I'm able to sustain. I have great clients, they are aware I'm operating from home and they are very supportive.

We visited Melbourne and Adelaide in December. It was more like our 4th wedding anniversary, my hubby's bday, our long awaited honeymoon and my sisters' graduation. It was a all-in-one trip. We had super fun, I'll leave our story about our trip for another day.

I received a good news yesterday, our house we bought in Seri Kembangan will be ready for us to move in just before CNY. Anyways, we've heard this before throughout the year last year. It's always before this and before that but it never happens. But this time, the developer is pretty sure it's ready.

When I move I'll be missing my good neighbours, my next door neighbour Jacyn that we rarely meet but always chat on msn. Ahh yes, we are neighbours and we meet on msn more often that in flesh....hehehe...I now have a new neighbour in the opposite unit. They moved in about a month ago but only saw Ric twice and last Tuesday we managed to exchange more than a Hi. Which is good and now we are chatting on

I got myself busy with cleaning and packing all excited to move to my new house!! Yippee!! I just hope it's not another let down.
