The Smurfs

As the title says all...Hee hee...Anyone remember this cartoon?

The Smurfs are a group of small bluish creatures who live somewhere in the forests. The Smurfs live in houses that made from mushroom or houses that looked like mushrooms and their village is called The Smurfs Village.

It used to be one of my favourite many cartoon character and series during my childhood time...Still remember the time when Im still a kid. I used to stick around the TV set to watch the cartoon series. Theres a lot of cartoon series aired on TV that time but its getting less now adays.

What is your favourite cartoon character or series during your childhood time?

New York = Big Apple

Ever wonder why some people called New York as the Big Apple? Ever wonder whats the reason behind it?

Well, I do. I dunno why but lately I`ve been this kinda thingy.For example, why 7-11? and now this. As usual, I ask Woofy and he gave me the same answer " Go search at Google" . Ish...So lazy...=.=

So, here I am again. Searching at Google for the topic and this is what I get.

According to this website,beside being called as the "Big Apple", New York is also called as "Gotham". Anyway, stick to the topic.

The "Big Apple" was given by this guy called John Fitzgerald who is a horse-racing columnist back in 1920s. Apparently, Fitzgerald heard the term from stable hands in New Orleans who lovingly referred to New York City's racetracks as "...the dream of every lad that ever threw a leg over a thoroughbred. There's only one Big Apple. That's New York." and n the 1930s, the term was adopted by jazz musicians, when Harlem was the site of all the choicest gigs. ( this source I get it from here.)

Conclusion, I still dun have the clear answer on why New York is called the "Big Apple". Can someone tell me the main reason behind it?

I aked Woofy and my mama this question yesterday nite : "Ny(this is what i call Woofy, Heehee) , why they named 7-11 as 7-11 geh? Got special meaning?" and to my mama " Mama, y 7-11? Kenot other names 1 meh?" then Woofy answered me " Go search at Google laa.." and my mama " How i know? Find out urself laa"

Cheh...ask them but no answer...So, I go searched at Google for 7-11 and i got this....Hee hee...

Apparently, it was known as Tote'm then they changed the name to 7-11 because was to reflect the stores' new, extended hours - 7 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week.

O.o That the meaning of 7-11 but why they open the store 24 hours instead of 7am to 11pm? Izzit in Malaysia only operate for 24 hours? Hmmmm.....

But anyway, now i know the meaning d....If interested, take a look here. ^0^

What is friends to you and how you define them? Have you ever met someone that you consider as your " friend" but they make ur life miserable? What are the roles that played by a friend in one's life and is there any category that differentiate types of friends?

Hmmmm...for me, there are few types of friends that you`ll meet in life. For example :

(i) True friend : friends that will support you, stand by ur side, care for you, etc throughout ur ups and downs
(ii)Childhood friend: friends that you grew up with...share alot of ur childhood times...
(iii)Hi-Bye friend : friends that are temporary in ur life...doesnt influence much in life
(iv)The strayer : friends that mix you with for sometime and good with you but after certain time, when they found someone new, they stray away from you and eventually, forgets bout u....

Well, those are the few categories that based on my own theory....I dunno why but I just have this in my mind since this morning...

Suddenly, i feel like missing something....Well, I used to have a lot of good memories with this friend of mine. I knew her since my kindergarten days. We shared alot of our ups and downs and we consider each other as best friend and vow to make it forever. We attend the same kindergarten, primary, secondary and even during our form 6. We also attend the same tuition class and also art class.

But happiness does not last long, when we attend our secondary, we seems to stray from each other alot. We doesnt communicate as much as we used to. She has her own group of friends and same goes with me. From childhood friends to best friends....and now to hi-bye friends....Sometimes, I wonder, what if we didnt stray from each other and keep maintaining our friendship like we used to be? Its sucha waste....

Its true...Nothing in this world is permanent...People come and go...World keeps changing and so do human...If you're lucky, you meet true friends and you're not, then its the other way round.

No matter where u meet your friends,may it be at primary school, secondary school, workplace or etc but when u have find it just appreciate it n care of the friendship. It may not b last forever but at least, they leave some "memories" or " impact" in ur life. =)

The day we bought a Ferrari F430

This evening we went to the showroom to see cars, because we felt that we have the need to add a car into our collection. We saw the Ferrari F430, and we really love that car. We negotiated with the salesperson for so long to reduce the car price because we really wanted to buy that car. Hmm... After some time, finally we got a great deal from the salesperson, with some undertable money of course. Paid him RM50 for that.

After getting the official documents, we bring that car back home. Wahh.... She's sucha beauty!

This is the one that we actually wanted to buy. Too bad, the owner insist not to sell it.

This is our car. It's in red colour. The curves of the car is so sexy, innit?

The rear view of the car. 4 exhaust pipes, 2 on each side. And there's a huge rear diffuser between them.

Side view. Awwwwwww, pretty......

Hmm.... Nice, isn't it? Or is it you feel very wierd after looking at those pictures?

YES. IT'S INDEED WEIRD. It's a Ferrari F430, but it's a model car. Yes it's a great deal, at only RM7.99. The salesperson? Shell petrol station. The undertable money? It's actually RM50 for petrol for our car. Keekekekekeke.....

The Arrival of My Baby....

Last Thursday, I went to Gurney Plaza to buy my baby. Don't think sideways, it's actually buying my new laptop... Hehe.... Been looking for a laptop for some time already, and finally I bought this 1 - Compaq Presario V3000. Actually I have been favoring this model since end of last year, and after some serious considerations, in the end I got this laptop. YAY~~~

This is the packaging for the laptop. It's quite compact than what I expected. It's powered by AMD Turion 64 x2, which runs at 1.6GHz.

The laptop bag and the freebies. I got a 1GB pendrive, a mouse pad and a blardy malfunctioned IBM mouse T_T

Yep, this is the baby. Shiny, isn't it? =)

Taa daa~~~

My shiny lil' baby. Running on Microsoft's hot new operating system - Windows Vista.

Bukit Tinggi : French Village

Continuing from the previous post. We drove for a few minutes and we reached the French Village. Well, at the time we`re the village, there's nothing much happening except for few tourists walking around and some having a break at nearby coffee houses. Maybe due to our weekdays visit but during weekends, there'll be a lot of activities there.

In side the French Village with X'masy deco.

Top view

We stay there for a few minutes. After that, we walked around the village and we saw these cuties.....

White swan which they kept under the bridge.There are 2 white swans actually.

Black swan

The couple (i think)

Then, we look see look see around and we saw black clouds. Sign of heavy rain which means, we needa leave Bukit Tinggi already.

Look at the sky.Dark Dark liao...

BUT, before Woofy headed to the highway, i asked him to stop at d foot of the hill as i want to have a look at their "mini-zoo".

Too bad, the "mini-zoo" closed by the time we reached there. SO, we sneaked in using the back gate..(heehee)

The donkey. So busuk nia...Ewwwww

Another view of the donkey

Then we reached to the deer section. There this male deer naik miang (you know what i mean) and we saw it going around chasing the female deers to *ahem*. Caught the pic, but guess not so appropriate to post here. Hee hee...

A rather small size deer

A bigger size deer

I want to visit their section where they kept rabbits but was closed too due to the time. Next time maybe...We went back to KL after that.

On our journey back, the sky was so gloomy.And we even caught in the jam on the highway

Dark clouds

Jam but take a look at the mist

From afar, it looked like smoke

As for the jam, it turn out to be a truck had turn-turtle.

Bukit Tinggi : Japanese Village

We went to Bukit Tinggi on 11th Dec last year during my short stay at KL. It's a one day trip for us.

On that day, Woofy need to attend his morning class. So, Im left at home to prepare our needs for the trip. I made some tuna and egg sandwiches for us as breaky and eat it in the car during our journey.

The tuna and egg sandwiches. (my first time prepare this)

After Woofy's back from his class, he went for a short shower and we start our journey. When we reached the highway to Bukit Tinggi, it started to rain heavily but we still proceed to our destination.

~*~*~*~*to cut story short~*~*~*~*

The first place we visit when we reached Bukit Tinggi is this Japanese Village.

You`ll see this fish pond upon reaching the Japanese Village.

The little Japanese hut.

Scenery of the Japanese Village.

Anyway, didn't manage to take much of the scenery at Japanese Village due to the raining weather.After that, we proceed to the Colmar Tropicale,French Village.

Today, 22 years ago, a baby girl was born to a couple who lives in a small town, Penang. She’s their 1st born child and the only child. She was given the best of everything that the couple could afford. They give her endless care, support, love, attention, protection and concern. When the girl is unhappy, they will try their best to make her happy and when she is happy, they will be the one who cheer with her. When she’s sick, they will be the one who worried her the most. She’s like the gem or diamond to her parents. She gets everything that she desire.

During her school days, her parents will be the one who gets more excited than her during the 1st day of each year. When she can’t do her homework, her parents will be there to guide her and support her and even help her to do her homework. When she fails in her studies, her parents will not scold her but rather give her advice on what to do in the future.

Now when she grew older, she vowed that, she will give the best to both of her parents in the future and to repay back them for they had done to her even thou it is impossible to repay everything that her parents had done for her. She tries to be the best daughter to her parents and wants to make her parents proud.

So, here I am today, the baby girl who is 22 years old, I know I still haven’t done anything that make my parents proud but always make them worry. But, I would like my parents to know, that I trying hard to study well and to become a better person in the future. A person who can provide the best for them for what they had done for me. A person who they rely to. A person who will take care of them forever. A person who love them forever. A person who support them like how they support me through out my life.

I would like to thank you my parents for giving me the best of everything. For their love, concern, protection, care and support. For their time and tolerance when I’m throwing tantrums. Thank you for bring me to this world and give me the chance to be your daughter.

I would like to say this to both my parents,

"Mama and Papa, I love you."
