:: yellow flicker beat ::

im done with it (ohh)
this is the start of how it ever ends
they used to shout my name, now they whisper it
im speeding up and this is the
red, orange yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
thanks for pissing me off today.
it made me think.
it self-motivated me to be the better person.

after all, 
karma's a bitch,


:: no monday blues ::

this is not an often thing for us. and by us i mean me and #bestlovefriend Sue. semalam kitaorang outing. and by outing i mean jenjalan with a mission. mencari barang spa.

so as planned, to Sg Wang we go. the last time i was in Sg Wang was more than 6 months ago according to my Swarm App but i think i was there recently with LVDV and Gegurl cari barang jugak. tak ingat bila. dah park dah cari kedai dah beli barang...we were famished. so we decided on sushi and the nearest was Sushi Zanmai in Low Yatt.

daripada atas turun paling bawah. belok kiri tak jumpa. berhenti jap tanya budak kat Aunty Anne's tu and she showed us the way. 'sampai hujung turun bawah dik' ...amboih!?! ko panggik aku adik?!?! woah!! so we did, sampai hujung turun bawah. tak jumpa. turun bawah lagi. takde. naik balik ke kiri plak. jumpa toilet. okay fine..naik atas lagi. terus tanya information counter. can u imagine kitaorang dua ekor sesat nak cari jalan blakang keluar from Sg Wang to Low Yatt?!?! wtf!?!

finally jumpa, i concluded, bukit bintang is not our turf anymore. brapa kali setahun plak aku jejak kaki kat Sg Wang nie haaa..but Sue said 'kita dah tua babe' ...pffts. hello babe, bdk Aunty Anne's tu just called us 'dik' kot. *rolling-eyes* secretly i half-heartedly agreed. kalo takde sebab nak cari barang memang takde sebab nak datang sini pon.

then we had lunch. i drank green tea yg GREEN for the first time. it was yummy rupanya! Gegurl would be proud if she knew. takde lah aku kene bahan dah asyik order watermelon juice bila dine-in japanese. the closest to green tea i had was all those ones yang mix with flavors. u know..those kat Petronas ones. hehe.

then Sue wanted to cari another barang. Low Yatt was the best place. agaknya. so naik atas. atas lagi. atas lagi. atas lagi. tak jumpa. turun balik. then kat hujung of one the escalators we saw what we hunted for. beli. but we needed speakers pulak. naik atas balik. and atas lagi. who know there's like a million USB speakers in Low Yatt? huarghhh...pretty sure we looked like lost bimbos dalam kedai gadgets sampai someone came and attend us. tak tahu lah apa nama abang tu tapi dia baik. showed us around the kedai and recommended the speaker yang sesuai. guess what? he doesnt even work there. dia pon shopper. bhahahaha.

then it was dessert time! since it was noon, ice-cream sounds nice. Sue wanted a hipster place. ada ke ice-cream parlour yang hipster in KL? anyway, we opted for mengopi at VCR je. loved the place, loved the cakes. didnt love the parking though. kisahnya mencari parking berpusing 3 ke 4 kali tawaf tak jumpa jugak. naik bukit uturn turun bukit dengan harapan ada la manusia yang keluar parking tapi takde. sudahnya, we parked atas tepi jalan. kengkonon bole nampak la kot2 DBKL lalu. elok je turun kete, tow truck DBKL lalu tengok kitaorang. but they didnt stop so Sue assumed they've made their rounds. we had our cakes outside at the porch...sambil2 leher panjang macam zirafah kejap2 tengok kete.

borak punya borak. gossip punya gossip. discuss punya discuss. terlupa about the car. when we were almost done...like seriously almost...tetiba ada bunyi siren! melompat #bestlovefriend aku!!..terus capai bag and ran towards the car!! zasss...tow truck DBKL lalu. but it was still empty. i panicked too. tak abis kunyah cake telan je terus. didnt even finished my water and ran ikot blakang Sue. only half way then i realised everything was okay...yang kelam kabut kelibut was only us two! LOL!!

terus balik umah kauuu! 

next time, we cari another hipster place yang senang parking laa okay babe?

:: ponytail ::

bila sorang kat Bukit Jalil, sorang kat JB and sorang lagi in Sydney. 
saturday night and this happened:

this is some sort of a normal sisterly conversation for us. you know in between the po paw penguins and fat cat mat and other discoveries that we are excited to bagitau each other time-time tu jugak...one thing to another then it lead to this:

that's my sister singing by the way.

then it was my turn to You-Tube Badanamu Ponytail.....and tak yah susah-susah. im sharing it here for you guys. im TOO excited. 

comel giler kan?
like comey tersangat amat kan? kan? kan?

"pppppppp ponytail"

yups...i end up singing to my sisters.
then my nephew Aydin sang it back to me.


okay tu je. kbai.

:: #moviereview Cinderella ::

i grew up watching all Disney princesses cartoons movies. im an 80s baby...like hello! so when this came out (or any princessy-movie) i was excited! in my mind, dah embedded with the original storyline...u know...Cinderella waking up singing with the birds, Gus-Gus demok gedempol pakai t-shirt nampak perut, ugly step-sisters sorang kuruih tinggi sorang gemok pendek n her scary rambut uban step-mother who was old. well, she looked really old to me at that age, but nope. nan-hado dalam this version. 

this one, didnt have much singing as i would expect but it's definitely a fairytale. 'have courage and be kind' is Cinderella's mantra. no matter what people do to you, always be kind. and owh, believe in magic. who knows one day in time of need, you have a fairy godmother to the rescue. turning pumpkin into a beautiful golden carriage, mice into horses, rags into one of a kind dresses and flats into glass slippers. i bet in this millenium, she can turn paperbags into LVs. hehehe. minus the bibbati-bobbati-boo! eh!

Cinderella was pretty of coz. the step-sisters were not ugly but omg-annoying. the stepmom was evil-face elegant but she had the prettiest wardrobe. wearing all shades of greens. the prince was very prince-looking. hahahaha, with the hair and the charm. the cartoon version punya prince lagi handsome actually but this one was okay-laaa. my advice, girls if u wanna meet a prince, go and masuk hutan, i think you're bound to meet one. most fairytales ends up like that. into the woods! 

my favorite part of the movie, anytime watching Gus-Gus makan. he always ada food in his hand. comey! and one time the goose busybody jengah tingkap tengok what was going between Cinderella and her fairy godmother. hahahaha. if that was a selfie moment, he was totally trying to photobombed the picture! hahahahaha. but paling paling paling favorite part among all.....was before the movie. the 7mins Frozen moments with Anna and Elsa and Kristoff and Olaf and mini olafs! paling paling paling best sebab habis je i ols tepuk tangan. excited. i felt like i was 5yrs old for 7 and a half minutes. *grins*

well, you'll be leaving the hall smiling. happy ending obviously. i didnt cry watching this...phew! i suggest, have a girls-day-out session to watch this. then after that go for a coffee n cake session n girls-talk away from guys to love to fashion to make-up topics. mesti best! have fun! 

:: #moviereview Run All Night ::

i dont know what is my problem but the last few movies i watched, semua pon aku nanges. dah kenapa kan? i suspect it's a faktor umur thingy but im assuming hormonal imbalance sajo. kuangsam betol.

the other day, screening Run All Night. if ure a fan of Liam Neeson, you'll definitely love this movie. kalau selalu tengok dia selamatkan anak dara, this time dia selamatkan anak teruna. yang botak. and handsome. ehem.

technically it's a one night stand story. literally, memang dia run-all-night. hehe. it's about friendship and family and confessions. like really hard confessions. what got me was the friendship part. i mean, having your good friend dying on your lap..that's tough. especially when u were the one who shot him. oppss..

sengaja or not you will somehow compare this to the Taken series but this is different. sebab for the first time, he started off as a loser. dia tak jahat, just a loser. it took me a while to digest that. i was like...'why are u so weak?!!?'...but the moment anak dia masuk scene, terus sedap mata memandang. walaupon comot2 kene pukul. hahaha. okay fine, i have a thing for botak-men. kau kurang ajar pon ill be okay takpe...you're like kurang ajar n handsome. bhahaha. okay enuff of him, back to the movie....it's action packed all the way so there's no time for toilet breaks tau.

im giving it a 3 stars rating so weekend nie go watch! 

:: #moviereview CHAPPiE ::

do u love robots? i love robots. i think they're super cool. 
well, if u do love robots, you will definitely love CHAPPiE. he's cool and cute! he is also probably the only robot gengster in history. who wears chains. u know, those thug-life ones macam dalam video clip hip-hop tu. yups, he's cool liddat! 

what's so special about this Ai machine is that CHAPPiE is r.e.a.l. and by real i dont mean humanly-real but it's as close as having his own human-like mindset. which means he feels emotions. since he is made out of titanium, CHAPPiE nie kira kat luaran keras tapi dalam hati ada taman...permainan. hahaha..comel giler. when he was activated he had a mind of a lil boy. he acted like a lil boy. he loves books and has a chicken-toy. he was born in a...err....acah-acah gengster family. im not sure if you know what i mean, but nanti dah tengok mesti korang paham lah! >.<

CHAPPiE 's self-claimed mommy is Yolandi and self-claim daddy is Ninja. i believe Yolandi's fashion style icon is Lady Gaga mungkin. her brother Ninja, was one of those kepala gengster yang berlagak pandai padahal ...nan-hado. if i were CHAPPiE's friend, ill definitely try and convince him to find another adopted parents. bhahaha. but CHAPPiE had no choice. they are so-called acah-acah but CHAPPiE loves them dearly. 

now, CHAPPiE's creator is Deon (Dev Patel). he's obviously a genius. he is also CHAPPiE's bestfriend. mungkin. yang tak bff dengan Deon is Vincent played by Hugh Jackman. now he is the not-good-we-no-friend-officemate-guy. he is also the i-jealous-boss-suka-kau-guy jugak. so u can imagine how hateful he is right? phewwww! i had a hard time menerima kenyataan Hugh Jackman as orang jahat. huwaaaa! im so used to his heroic characters. in here he's just like a mat rempit yang sado! pffts! 

overall, robotic or not bila scene sedih, i tetap kememe. apa nak jadi ngan aku nie..some says ending doesnt make sense but in an Ai world, i think it does. it has a lot of F-word and there was a blurred-porno on one of the gengster's tv screen. konon tak nak tunjuk laaa...censored. but hello, u didnt censor the sound they were making! *rolling-eyes* it's rated 18 guys...jangan bawak kids. they will be scarred like CHAPPiE masa budak. hehe. 

it's out this week at your nearest cinema! enjoy the movie! 


:: a thousand years ::

got excited over Christina Perri the other day, so i posted this in my lovedbyluvtanya ig. i mean, my caption was saying the truth right? everyone basically knows that song. and once upon a time that song was dedicated to the person you were with AT THAT TIME. come on, if you're denying the dedication pon, well at least your partner must have perasan syok sendiri it was dedicated to him/her. self-claim gitu. or wish it was dedicated to us. we've all been there. there's nothing to be ashamed of.

then i tweeted this: "bila dipikirkan, mungkin bole jadi punca gado nie tapi...nahh, what a waste of time" ..and LVDV replied me this: "ok xyah pikir2...saya otw!" ..gilo. 

then i realised one thing, we have always been like this. from day one. playful. im pretty sure this part was developed during our friendship days. sebabnya, dulu...bebila akan terjumpa, the moment i see LVDV from a far i have this habit of jalan sambil ala2 skipping ke arah dia. dengan dia je aku buat perangai nie wehh...tak tahu la kenapa. couldnt remember masa zaman skolah i was like that ke tak. hahahaha. dulu jugak, bebila lama tak dengar khabar berita, tiba2 LVDV will call daripada office and berlakon jadi customer service punya orang. u know, just for fun. tanya aku dah bayar bill bulan lepas ke blom? dia kalo tak bully aku memang tak sah budak nie. tapi the moment dia tergelak sket je i knew who it was. pffts! my next ayat would usually be "u mimpi eh semalam?" ...pastu dalam berani tak berani jawab "haah"...ecececehhh! dalam tepon brani arrr!

even-though our status has changed but really there's something really strong about our friendship base which has brought this relationship to another level. seperti contoh, LVDV will never believe i have taken a shower (siot je..) or that im a mix breed of vampire+witch+fairy...kah!kah!kah! i will never believe everytime LVDV cakap takde anjing. sebab sometimes anjing tu ada sebenarnya walaupon it was sleeping. i should not get into much details takot ada yang terbelahak karang but what im hoping is that this playful traits will always be there between us.

while watching the concert, Christina Perri did sang the song. the crowd obviously sang-a-long...including me. then LVDV went "hah! teringat lettew!"..eleh, nak kenakan orang. "eh kau pon sama kan..,twillight was the last movie marathon YOU had".....krik.krik....sambung nyanyi. kan dah cakap mungkin bole jadi punca...tapi we laughed it off after a short while. we both know without the past, there wouldnt be any present moment to cherish and lagipon, who the hell cares anymore? hahahaha. i blanja a short videos i took dalam my keek - @peluvtanya okeh...u ols can go sing sesama. tapi jangan jadi punca tau!

:: #luvcooks Ayam Bercili Nenek ::

every week i have a session of sleep over at nenek's house. we take turns to jaga her through-out the night and early morning, lepas mandikan nenek and serve her breakfast we continue balik to our daily life macam biasa. every week without fail, i dig in some first hand recipes from her as well. bab masak nie i think i am more like nenek sebab i love simple dishes. the lesser the ingredients the better. hehehe. bukan malas ye..tapi anything mudah and ringkas has always been my thing in cooking. and baking too for that matter.

recently, i cooked dinner. sambal udang. actually nenek yang teringin, i just bought the ingredients. we cooked sama2 kat dapur. gigih nak jenguk jugak kuali even in her wheelchair. every week when i come over, if berkesempatan ill just cook something n bawak to her house. last week, dia teringin nak masak for LVDV. i gotta tell u, everytime time (without fail) she layan us makan sambil borak she will mention dia suka tengok LVDV makan. sebab bila LVDV makan sangat berselera. memang betol pon. tapi pelik, LVDV doesnt gain any weight at all. hoh!

so while cooking, i got hold of another recipe. i call it Ayam Bercili Nenek.

chicken cubes or ayam setengah sekor potong kecik2
cili boh or cili giling
bawang merah
bawang putih
asam jawa

how to:
1. bawang merah + bawang putih + halia + air skit ...blend all.
2. mix together with the cili boh/ cili giling dalam mangkuk. tumiskan skali dengan serai sampai naik bau and macam pecah minyak a bit.
3. bila cili almost garing add in chicken cubes n gaulkan rata. biarkan sampai cili garing.
4. masukkan air asam jawa pekat. if nak extra kuah, cairkan air asam jawa. garam utk sedapkan rasa.
5. bila chicken cubes are all empuk, it's ready!

brought some to nenek masa weekend. nenek kata 'ok.pass!'...woohoo!! she used to make this everytime celebrate birthday sesapa or during any kenduri masa kat umah keramat dulu. now, i can continue her tradisi. im a one happy cucu. *big-smiles*

:: #moviereview Focus ::

first of all, this movie is rated 18 for a reason. please do not bring your underage kids if u dont want them to see Margot's titties. *opps! spoiler alert* i mean, Will's hot bod is just fine but Margot is wayyyyyyy hotter! 

Focus is movie about penyangaks. okay kidding. a more nicer word would be con-man. tapi they are con-mans yang tersangatlah ohsem! literally, jaw-dropping ohsem. i mean, if u have an ambition to be one, watch this movie 50mil times. lotsa tricks i tell you. lots. 

but janganlah bijak sangat nak jadi con-man ye tak? the storyline is twisted between work + emotion. how feelings can actually effect oneself in work too. it's about distraction. it's about cheating. it's about lying. it's about trust. it's about letting go. it's about choosing. it's about love and family ( u will not believe who is the dad!) and how zalim u can be bila terdesak. it makes u think. what would you do? 

tagline: it's about focus. the brain is slow and it can't multitask.

dont worry u will not fall asleep watching this. it's a romantic comedy and it's witty. memang keje gelak besides amazed with the chemistry between the actors. i major love every dress Margot was wearing especially the floral one she wore in Bueno Aires. i need that for my beach trip. eh? 

catch Focus at the nearest cinema now! nah i ols blanja u ols the trailer:
