BlackBerry Bold 9900


Set to be out on 15 September but I've been seeing a store announces in FB they're having their stocks coming in today. Also saw on twitter some are already using it. Definitely going into my Wish List. Will save up and get it after the wedding! Or maybe when my current BB contract ends, whichever comes first.

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the first Bold to feature a touchscreen interface and it is quite possibly the best Bold ever. At 10.5mm thin, it’s definitely the thinnest Bold ever. In fact, the 9900 is the thinnest and most powerful smartphone BlackBerry has ever produced with a much improved BlackBerry 7 OS, a 1GHz processor, 8GB of on-board memory, NFC support and a 5MP camera with 720p video recording capability that’s the best we’ve seen on a BlackBerry device.

The happy Van

Not so happy but still definitely is a VAN! We made a trip to Miri from KK on Monday using this van to bring over all my boxes of wedding stuff we've bought. We couldn't use flights to carry them over all at once. Actually we can, but the overweight charges would be good enough to buy myself a new plane. We can't really use a forwarding company because most of the things are fragile, everything might arrived shattered in pieces.

The van was surprising comfortable (or I'm just too Sakai). Came back on Tuesday. The trip was really short because we had to rent this Van and rental is quite pricey. Plus, my brother had to work and we'd be in Miri again this Sunday anyway for Hari Raya.

The journey was about 8 hours per trip so the past two days, 16 hours of my life was spent on the road! Glad I had my pillows with me.

I curled my hair for the first time EVER!

I've been wanting to curl my hair for years now but don't really have the guts to do it. Not a risk taker when it comes to my hair. I've been on the same hairstyle almost all my life, just longer and shorter (but it has to be below shoulders). Mom disapproves me spoiling my hair with all types of chemicals too so she's not into me doing any coloring, straightening or curling of any sort. Though I managed to color it once 2 years back but didn't get around of doing it again. Maintenance is such a fuss and expensive!

I finally did it yesterday. I opt for digital perm and the whole thing took FOUR hours! It was that long cos I have thick hair and since my hair is still a *ehem* virgin, it takes a lot longer time to absorb the chemicals.

Saying my last goodbye to my straight hair

Chemicals spread evenly on hair.

The thingy that makes the hair curl! My hair is long and thick. Add in those rollers and sponges I felt like I was carrying two heads instead of one. Super heavy! I couldn't even move my neck.

I came to the saloon prepared. Brought along a book I purchased yesterday. At least I didn't have to spend the FOUR hours reading some past issues of Seventeen and Cleo, or flip through pictures in the Chinese mags.

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. So far so good! I'm going really slow and taking my time to read this one. Don't want to finish another book so soon.

The result!

So what do you think? While doing my hair, the hair stylist asked my age and when she found out, she said I have baby face. Yes you can see me grinning from one ear to the other the whole time! But when I was done and my hair was all curled up, she then said "No more baby, big girl already!" LOL! Some commented I look more matured now. I personally like it but I'm still not used to styling curly hair so I'm a mess right now.

Not only it was FOUR hours, I had to carry those heavy curlers on my head, now I can't wash my hair for the next three days. What women are willing to go through in the name of beauty -_- No pain no gain!

Woman sustains burns in acid splash

Woman sustains burns in acid splash -

This news saddens and terrifies me all at the same time. Terrifying because this case happened so near to my home! I'm so sad how inhumane people can be. Enough with trying to rob the person, they're making the victims go through a life-time of suffering.

These idiots must have watched too much TV and news to follow the acts of the acid splashers in KL. Really, what do you get? The only way to get these people pay for what they've done is not just some time in jail. We should shower them with acids up to their bones! Better, make them drink those acids and go die.

Motive is still unknown. Be safe people. The madness has reached our land.

Where Rainbows End by Cecilia Ahern

When we reached the airport yesterday, our flight is still 4 hours away and we were so early, our check-in counter was not even open yet.

I got really bored and I didn't want to drain my phone's battery from emailing Zech and checking on facebook/twitter all the time so I went to the book shop hoping to get some magazines because they are a a few ringgits cheaper there compared to here (or how they like to refer it as East Malaysia).

So there I was in the shop going through shelves of books and magazines when I saw this book, Where Rainbows End by Cecilia Ahern. Now who doesn't know Cecilia Ahern! If you don't know her by her books, then you know the movie that they've adapted from her novel, P/S I love you. I glanced through the summary and I thought the story was cute.

Thing is, I haven't been reading any books for so many years now when people ask me if I do like to read, I'd say only magazines. Truth is, since way back in primary school and all through my high school years, I love books! If you can't find me at the CD store (there were no mp3s and I was a big fan of buying my boybands original CDs. You know, N Sync all that), you'd find me in a bookstore. I'd go out shopping and bring back 3 different books and 3 different CDs. No clothes, shoes or whatsoever in that category.

So I was quite hesitant in getting the book, not sure if I still have the interest or vibe in reading. I know the author is famous for great novels, the story from the summary is something I know I would love to read. With the thought of spending another 4 hours waiting? I grabbed the book, took the latest copy of Women's Weekly and Her World, purchased!

Where Rainbows End by Cecilia Ahern

Guess what? I bought the book at 4pm yesterday at KLIA, 4pm today I'm done reading it! Done in less than 24 hours. I still got the vibe after all. Still a bookworm at heart! Event slept at 2am last night cos the next page can't wait for tomorrow.

All I have to say is, I love the book and was quite sad that it had to end. Yet I was so excited in getting myself another book! Most probably also by Cecelia Ahern. Any other suggestions? I love romantic comedies be it for movies or books. Sappy romance with hints of humor.

Sazzy Falak and Cameron Diaz on magazine covers

Sazzy's post pregnancy look is unbelievable. She's as gorgeous as ever! I want to have babies and look like her please please please?

Anyways, I'm definitely going book hunting again soon.

Busy Bee

I am way busier while I'm on a break rather than being in the office! I've taken the month off before starting work at the new place after Hari Raya to help out with the wedding preparations and maybe get some mental rest while I'm at it.


Other than not having to wake up really early, my time is occupied with so many things to do and not to mention the traveling! This month alone I've been to KL and Miri both twice. I just got back from Miri last night and I'm heading to KL again tomorrow to accompany my mom and dad for a medical checkup. Then back to Miri again in two weeks for Hari Raya. How time flies! We're half way through Ramadhan already.

Some good news though. Our honeymoon plans are ON! We almost canceled any plans to go anywhere after the wedding due to the time constraint but Alhamdulillah thanks to Abg Boy and mom for their HUGE and generous wedding present, we're going ahead with it.

I'm not getting my London trip but that's okay. This is just as equally exciting if not better! So where are we heading?


We've been wanting to visit Universal Studios Singapore so this is definitely a dream come true! We'll be going two days after the wedding. Now I just need to draft out a really nice and awesome letter for my leave -_-

Image googled.

Dior Addict Lip Glow

I'm not a big fan of lipsticks so I tend to purchase lip balms or sometimes lip gloss instead. I usually would buy one because I thought I need one, then I'd usually forget I have one and ends up not using it anyway. Goes out on a different day, sees a lip balm and again I thought I need it and it gives a nice shade, bought it then chucked to the corner of my makeup bag.

Unlike most girls, I don't have the habit of re-applying my lipsticks or lip gloss after a few hours or after a meal in a day. I would put it on before I leave home and that's it. I won't remember anything about it until my lips starts cracking.

This is all before I found Dior Addict Lip Glow. My friend Dina recommended this while we were on our usual girls-day-out. It was out of stock in KK so I bought mine while I was in KL last week. I now simply can't live without it! I've even cleared all other lipsticks or lipgloss in my daily makeup pouch.

It moisturizes the lips while giving this subtle hue or shades according to your lips! So different people who puts it on, it'll generate different color according to your skin tone. I now have beautiful gorgeous lips all day long! I would like to believe so lah...

Color Awakening Lipbalm

A made-to-measure lip balm that beautifies and durably enhances the lips’ natural color. A customized color result : thanks to its Color Reviver technology, Dior Addict Lip Glow reacts directly with the unique chemistry of each woman’s lips before releasing its color ingredient. Lips seem revived from within, amazingly fresh, full and radiant. In addition, its SPF10 formula enriched with wild mango and luffa cylindrica continuously protects and moisturizes. A universal balm for all lips. (

I would highly recommend this to those who are not all fancy about makeup but would love to enhance your look, not leaving your face looking too pale throughout the day.

You can get it at any Dior counters for RM88.

My wedding invitation cards

Now I'm in the midst of going trough our guests list and distributing the cards and it sure is giving us headaches. We started distributing the cards after receiving them to our families there in KL and Zech is in Kuching for the next 2 days to extend the invites to his side of the family while Mom & I try to settle with the invites for our side.

Our wedding invitation cards and 'thank you' tags are done by

I once praised and applaud my wedding invitation designer for her patience towards me being too detailed on A LOT of things for the cards, I can't even remember the amount of time I change the fonts alone!

I found out about them after trying to source online for possible companies or individuals who are able to do hard cover cards with great quality yet with a reasonable price in Malaysia. We know how Indonesia are famous for their really cheap hard covers! But we couldn't possibly travel that far and spend that much money just to get our invites done.

So I bookmarked the site and fast forward to a month ago, we went over to their office to meet up personally and discuss about what we want, what they have and what they could come up with. They actually do online orders but I can't risk doing my cards with an unknown person. After the meeting, we further finalize everything via emails.

We agreed on hard cover invites design for our Akad Nikah, while postcard type card for our Reception.

I've said it in that same post and I shall say it again, I give them infinity stars and an A with multiple plus (A+++?) for VERY GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE. She attends to my every single email with very fast response and make changes accordingly with no sighs and Sorry we can't do that but always with a Sure! and a No problem!

We went to KL to collect the cards (explains the absence). I personally asked a favor from them to drop it off at our hotel and again, I get a Sure! and they sure did. I'm not sure about you brides-to-be out there, but not many companies (or maybe none?) would go to such level with their customers so I was indeed lucky to have chosen them to do our cards.

Anyways... Mom, Zech and I were so happy when we saw both our Akad Nikah and Reception cards as well as our 'thank you' tags! We get exactly what we wanted and it definitely meets up to our expectations. Thank you Najah!


So to those who want hard cover cards for their wedding in Malaysia, try them out. They also do good quality postcard type cards, soft cover cards and thank you tags.

I am not paid or sponsored to write this post. Just a sincere review to share because I was so happy with my cards!
