Hmmm...i had my E-test 2 for Tamadun Islam & Asia (Islamic & Asian Civilization) yesterday and i can say that i'm pretty impressed with myself! =) Well, considering the fact that i only started studying the night before the test and i dint attend the lectures, I did quite well! well maybe good! hehe! so far I got 40/50 for the 1st E-test and i got 46/50 for my 2nd E-test! and that means i only need 7 marks to pass my final paper, which of coz i will try my best to score more! who doesnt want to ace their finals isn't it? so after the test, groups of friends and i went to celebrate and went for movie! we watched '12 Rounds'! DAMN! I LIKE THAT MOVIE! it's full of suspense and that's what i like in a movie! =)

I love ém FOOD!!!

Yup you got it! It’s food that I’m going to talk about!!! Well who doesn’t love food?!?! Tell me? With the right way of cooking and occasion, food can be something that is very special and indeed something to treasure. What am about to share is food that I love and…food that I least like. I, myself specifically love the Chinese food! Growing in a Chinese community it’s hard to say that you don’t like Chinese food!

Secondly, I would say the Arabic food! Ever since I came to KL and tried the Arabic food for the 1st time, I just can’t get enough!

I kept craving for them and keep asking my sayang to bring me to the Arabic restaurant nearby. So here are some of the Arabic delicacies that I love!!!

مسقعه (moosa'kaa)

باميه (bamya)

مضغوط (maghroút)
Lamb Kabsah

Mutabal *the humus*

And of course, thirdly I really love my own home cook delicacies which are specially cooked by my mom and my sister for me every time I’m back in Kuching…(well I don’t really cook at home coz my sis and my mom do most of the cooking… ;-p). Oh yeah, another dish that I would never say NO to is the ONE AND ONLY the ‘Laksa Sarawak’!!! It’s the BOMB!!! I have an Iranian friend who used to visit Kuching and tried the dish and ever since then he kept telling me that he’s been craving for it! And wonder if there’s any in KL…so I told him, I, myself is looking for ‘Laksa Sarawak’ in KL coz I’ve been craving for it too!!!

Sarawak laksa

another one =)

Well there go my favourite food…and now for my least favourite. I don’t really like Malay food coz of few reasons in particular. The main reason would be coz they put TOO MUCH SUGAR in every meal they cooked! I remembered watching a show on ‘Asia Food Channel’ (can’t really recall the name of the show though) whereby a chef from England whose hosting the show came to Malaysia and tryout some of the food here. And she did comment this ‘they do love sugar in their food’… so yeah… they really do love sugar in their food. I mean it’s ok to have sugar in your drink or your dessert like pie or pudding or cakes but not in your curry or rendang or some of the fried rice and noodles! I find that a bit too much! Some of the other reason would be they put too much coconut milk and cooking oil in most of the dishes.

Hmmm…I don’t have much things to say about Indian food coz basically I don’t really go to Indian restaurant that much but if I do, I make sure I go to the North Indian Restaurant in Bukit Bintang coz their chicken massala and chicken tikka is just so crazy! Makes you want more!!! Especially the chicken curry! I’ve never tasted something like that before! It’s superb!

But I don’t like any ‘mamak’ restaurant! Coz it’s really a waste of money! Their charges are ridiculous. I mean considering the fact that they serve lousy food but charged you like crazy?!?! That’s insane!

mamak restaurant

But then in KL you don’t just come across Malay food that’s sweet. Some of the other food some of the Chinese food where they put extra sugar in their ‘mee soup’ (the one selling in my college), ‘the sweet and sour pork or chicken’ (well understood it’s called sweet and sour but that doesn’t mean they had to put like a kilo sugar in it till the gravy look so sticky coz of the sugar or the honey that they used) Seriously? How can you eat the food that is naturally NOT suppose to be sweet but some people tend to create their own recipe by putting extra sugar in it and it becomes extra sweet? Imagine people putting sugar in the pasta or the lamb chop? Would anyone actually eat that? I personally would be the 1st to say NO to that kinda food.

Oh yeah that’s the reason why I don’t like TGI FRIDAYS! The pasta sucks and they cost so much! And yeah they put sugar in whatever that Jack Daniel’s lamb thingy…it’s so eww!

this is the Jack Daniel i was talking about! yeah it looks nice but then i just dont like it coz it's sweet!

Maybe that’s why I stick to Arabic food and some Chinese food or cook myself (I discovered that I’m quite a good cook myself…lol!) or if I’m desperate then I’ll opt for the fast food like McDonald’s when I’m in KL coz I don’t wanna ended up getting frustrated in the middle of eating and start complaining coz it’s too sweet..

DEPRESSED?!?!? What did you do? EAT!!!

Noticed that obese people are actually related to being depressed before? And the society always looked down on these people…? I just don’t know why but I actually pity them coz some of the problem they’re having is just not what they want and there is just nothing they can do about it! Well now I know how it is to feel when you turn to food for comfort or joy.

When I moved to KL for my studies (about a year ago) I find it tough to adapt and making friends. And still…I don’t really have that many friends till now... I can say I’ve got a lot of acquaintances but very few good friends. When I say few it means only 1 or 2. So there are times when I felt really down that I’ve got no one to turn to. So what did I do? I turned to food!!! I eat and eat and eat…!!! Well I sort of feel good after that coz after you eat you’ll feel sleepy and when you sleep you can at least forget about your problems for awhile and the reason you’re sad or depressed until I realized if I keep doing that I’ll turn into an obese person within a month or two…

not so sexy ehh? i know...

Well my point is that, I actually understand how these people feel and why are they doing so coz the world is such a cruel place to live in and food is the only way that can make them feel happy (even if not totally happy maybe just glad). And if u guys know anyone like this just try to help them in every ways possible and helping doesn’t mean in financial way coz what they actually need is moral support and friends.

yeah it's definitely not a laughing matter!

Dancing studio nearby...? Belly dance perhaps?

Since I came back from Kuching last month I’ve been looking for a dancing studio here in KL coz I figured out that I need a hobby here to release my boredom! There are times when I feel so bored I felt like jumping right out of my window!!! Well I wouldn’t die but I guess I might fracture some bones and ended up on wheelchair for the rest of my life! How do I know? Well there was a case where an Indian guy jumped out of the window from the block next to mine coz he was in his gf’s room and it happens that the security guard was on patrol…being scared that he’ll get kicked out of hostel??? So he JUMPED! And it happen that I was on my way to college when I saw everyone was there and he was laying in the ground…the next thing I knew…he was in the hospital..ICU...

Back to the point… does anyone know if there’s any dance studio near wangsa maju area? Coz I need to register myself a.s.a.p!!! Plus, I need to shed off this few pounds I’ve been gaining… ;-P
Sadie (in the pic) one of the most talented belly dancer...should see her dance the drum solo thing here. She really knows how to shake those hips with the music!

Since few years back I’ve always been wanting to learn belly dance coz it’s soooo cool! (Well I did attend the class once and it was really fun! And the instructor actually asked me to join the advanced class since she said I was a fast learner!! *wink wink*)
Belly dance class being conduct.Imagine moving your hips and belly without moving the other parts of the body!!! And all those ‘snake-looking’ moves are just so sexy!

I’ve been doing some research online and I found out that belly dance can give a lot of benefits!!! And I mean ALOT!!! Belly dancing benefits both mental and physicals. Dancing provides a good cardio-vascular workout and helps increase both flexibility and strength, focusing on the torso or "core muscles", although it also builds leg strength.
Belly dance is suitable for all ages and body types, and can be as physical as the participant chooses. The art form tones the arms, strengthens and tightens the abs and obliques, and improves flexibility.
Rachel Brice, another talented belly dancer that moves like a snake... and that is why she's given the 'snake charmer' name. can check her moves here.
Notice how she actually moves her tummy!

On top of that, belly dance can reduce the risk of osteoporosis and offers just minimal stress on knees and feet. And here’s a good news for women out there who really want to try belly dancing…not only it gives a great work out but it is also believed to be able to relieve menstrual problems and has been shown to be very useful during pregnancy and childbirth. This is due to the movements associated with belly dance can strengthen the abdominal and pelvic region.
I personally love the colour of the costume.

And I seriously just adore their costumes!!! So beautiful!!! Especially the details on the costumes!!!

So what are you guys waiting for?!?!? Sign up for your belly dance class today!!! Coz i'm gonna do that too...well..soon! =)

People are such an ass these days…!!!

Seriously how can people be so mean! And I’m not talking about people you don’t know or strangers but I’m talking about people who are/were your friends!!!!!!!!! I used to think that there was such thing call ‘BFF’, ‘friends forever’ and bla bla bla…but those are bullshit! If a best friend of yours can just suddenly ditch you one day after 5 years being your bestie and start bitching about you out of nowhere to the whole world and making you look like you’re the bad one, so can the others!

That is why I just find it hard trust anyone these days. And worst case even, when you call your friends and they didn’t pick up the phone. Well you’ll say to yourself, it’s ok maybe he’s busy and I’ll call again later…an hour later…still no answer…the next hour…still no answer…the next thing you get tomorrow…sorry vina, yesterday I got no credit to reply you. Like wtf?!?!?! HELLO???!!! I CALLED YOU NOT SMS YOU!!! AND I CALL YOU THRICE!! NO CREDIT TO REPLY MY ASS!!! Seriously if you don’t want to talk to me, why bother texting me the next day saying those craps? If you’re avoiding me and don’t want to talk to me…JUST SAY IT RIGHT TO MY FACE AND I’LL FUCK OFF!!!
My point is I hate two-faced people who act like nothing happen when they are in front of me and then start bitching behind my back! I hate those kinda people coz I personally won’t do that! If I don’t like you, I’ll show it to you…sometimes I don’t say it straight but my body language is enough to describe that I’m just annoyed with you..well that’s why it’s called ‘action speaks louder than words’..

Since this is my 1st time writing a blog…please pardon me if it’s not really catchy or that interesting…would really try to make it interesting later…*wink wink*

Why did I actually plan to start a blog?? Well that idea came after I’ve been following this blog called hegab rehab’ and some of the other blogs….should really check it out coz its super duper interesting…

Well that might be my 1st reason…the 2nd reason would be coz I’ve got NO life!!!

Class…hostel…class…hostel…well that’s pretty much about’s getting more boring especially when the schedule is really really free…as in 1 lecture a day…your class ends at 10 am and you’re free for the rest of day….*sigh* so here I am in this virtual world of my own blabbing about my life and all this things that I really find…interesting…just to share…

And some of the other reasons might be coz recently I’ve too much anger inside that I just don’t know how to let go but by writing… (well since I’m still a student and I can’t actually afford my own psychiatrist so here I am babbling about my problem here hoping that there are actually people who can relate to it and tell me what should I do..)

I came across a blog called Rebellious Arab Girl and the blog really inspire me to write and complaint all these shit that has been happening to me and around me. Something she said about letting out your anger by doing something creative…write…create new things…paint…draw… basically just about anything!!! Well I chose to write since I’ve no talent in painting, drawing what-so-ever and writing seems more like me coz the words will just come out through my fingers that are typing.

I remembered few years back when I asked a friend why did he blog…and how he got any idea to blog about….and he just answered me this… ‘just write and write eventually you’ll know what to write and you wouldn’t stop’ and yeah he is absolutely RIGHT!!!! =) Emmanuel, thank you so much! You’ve always been such a darling to me… So here we go….my very own 1st post…*oohhhhh im sooo excited!!!*
