Saturday constrictions.

We spent more than 4hours at the salon today and I came out looking the same and RM300 poorer. hahaha. I trimmed my hair (ok the back of my head's a bit different now... there's a V-shape sloping down), rebonded the sides and colour-treated it. O well... and NOW I can't wash my hair for 2 days????!!! Tian ahhhhhhhhh!!!

ANyway, before that, we went to Old Town White Coffee near our place for brunch. I had Ipoh horfun and Milk Tea with Ice and Alan had curry mee and Coffee with ice. We walked around the area and realised that there was a DVD shop which sold tvb drama DVDs at wholesale prices. We bought and bought and I stocked up on my Kevin Cheng... Ooooo Droolsome!!

After the 4 long hours (what a patient husband) at the salon, we grabbed some stuff at Watsons and Ace Hardware (new cones for Alan to drif his new remote control car he had fixed himself around) and then left for Jaya 33 Section 13 for some seafood.

As usual, the diet was disregarded and the husband ordered and ordered. We had a Geoduck sashimi + steamboat, long dan fish with taohu in claypot, kailan fried in 2 ways and some chilli mussels.

We ate the geoduck and downed it with a absolutely marvellous herbal soup. Before the other dishes arrived, I started getting chest constrictions though. hahaha Think the soup was filled with too much tonics. Alan also started feeling the heat after a while.

Of course, we couldnt finish all the food and brought it back for lunch tomorrow. :X There will be no way I can get back into shape before CNY!

Prolonged agony

As luck would have it, after postponing / cancelling my tuition classes, I am free the whole of today! Hahahah the presentation to Mr CEO has been postponed till a later date - hopefully early next week and the dinner with Dr Mahatilr till April possibly.

ZOoom ZoOm ZOom

Hello folks,
In another few minutes, I will be commencing my first class of the week. Both Alan and I had a slow and homely weekend. Basically, nothing exciting to update.
Maybe the fact that we watched the fashion parade that Uncle JimmĂ˝'s Chinatown Classic put up in the Centre Court of Mid Valley Mega mall last evening. The models were all at least a stately 1.8m (with high heels of course) and their gait reminded me of giraffes striding across a safari to pick fresh leaves from a nearby tree. The little boy model was abit awkward as well but all in all, the costumes donned by the models were beautiful and elegant. If I lose 10kg, I will consider buying afew :P

This week will be an interesting one. My student has recruited me as her marketing agent in a bid to acquire this big job from a well-known company which is redesigning its clubhouse in KL. My student owns an ID firm but is not confident of her prowess in the English language and therefore needs ME to do a presentation to the CEO and directors to win the contract. She is up against two other bigger firms. That will be on Friday probably.

Also on Friday is a dinner scheduled for Alan and wife to rub shoulders amongst the Who's Who in Malaysia. *sigh* it's yet another " entertaining session" for me again. At least I will get to wear my Daniel Yam (long time ago purchased but still hanging forlornly in cupboard). It will hopefully hide my bulging tummy (NO i AM NOT PREGGIE) with the chiffon folds.

Did I mention also that this old hag will be celebrating her birthday in Bali this year? Belated of course, knowing fully well my birthday iteself falls unfortunately on the FIRST DAY OF CHINESE NEW YEAR! shucks.. what are the odds of me spending my special day with throngs of kaypoh relatives asking the perenial question of maternity? Sympathies, you offer?

AnYWaYyyy, the dear husband will be digging into his piggy and bringing me to Ubud and Manggis in Bali, Indonesia to escape after the 2nd day of the new year, once we fulfill our obligations...It will be a 4 night package - 2 nights in Ubud (mountains) and 2 in Manggis (Beach). The package is aptly named "The 2 Faces of Bali" and both Alan and myself are suitably excited. He wants to buy Art pieces there and I just wanna savour Bali like I have never before.

Ok. Canned soup lunch beckons before I have to pry my eyelids open during tuition...Take care folks! Love.
