What's up, Doc?


Just to give you some ideas on what CFM is about, and what I am going through right this moment…

                          This is the book. Feel free to click on any picture for a clearer view

In class, this is what we all do...

                                 See the guy on the left? See the one on the right as well?

At night, this is what I do ...

I've decided that I am just hopeless where math is concerned. Anything to do with figures, math formulas, calculations, accounting, finance, etc, etc.. it's ALL beyond me. Just not my cup of tea. Period, and having said that, I am psyching myself up for many re-sits for this paper, and still not pass.

So, how have I been faring lately....? This is how....

Uh… see the CPU that is on fire? That's how my brain feels right now, ok. Thank you very much. 

This week, I have a friend who highlighted to me that between studying and working, studying is not that easy after all. Well, just in case he forgets, I am working and studying at the same time, except that I now have a much more flexible time compared to working for others. And if I reflect back the time when I was working for others, I shiver, and thanks to this friend, I am glad that I am doing what I am doing right now. Unless all the modules that I am taking are finance related, otherwise, I would be happy sticking to what I am going through at this moment.. :-D

A gift in the mail
3 ½ weeks ago, I was stressed to the max with information overload doing MIS assignments, when ST informed that he needed to go back to Penang, for work as well as to visit the parents. So I was working on my assignments all alone at home, and nearly went “bongkus”, when he text me and told me that his sis decided to pass me a Fossil handbag, which she originally bought for herself but decided she didn’t really like it. 

When he came back from Penang, he told me that his sis also bought me “something” from Paris. And he passed me a package that looked like this…

When I saw the word on the package, my jaw nearly dropped open, but I kept my cool, thinking it can’t be, coz that is a very expensive brand. So I thought, she is probably re-using the LC gift package.  Maybe she bought a LC for herself, it came with the wrapper, hence, she is using it to put my “something” inside.

So I pretended to look cool.... 

                                                      Picture taken from here

while I opened the package. Imagine my expression when I saw what’s inside…




It was indeed a Longchamp, from Paris….!!! And oh, how I love it….!

This is how it looks like when folded up.

This is how it looks like when opened up.

And it's in my favourite color blue...........!!!

I know, I know, we can now get one that looks exactly like a Longchamp from Brands Outlets within the price of RM 30-50 depending on the size, but hey, mine is ORI and it's FREE.........!

Thank you! You made my day...!

Mascot gone missing!
I was at our regular pet shop few afternoon ago, coz I needed to book a place for my two furball, when we head back to Penang. As I walked in, I noticed that the petshop mascot was missing.

This is the mascot...

                                                 This picture was taken in early 2008

She would normally walk up and greet anyone who steps into the shop, unless she is sleeping somewhere in the shop. Friendly and playful lil' fella. The whole neighborhood knows her, including my nieces. She's fat too..! She sometimes walk around in a Korean outfit, more glamour than a Korean princess.

That afternoon, not seeing her around, my heart skipped a beat, thinking that something might have happened to her or something. So I asked the owner's daughter where is Meow Meow.

She pointed to a notice on the wall. I slowly looked over, thinking I'm gonna see a picture of her and a notice of her demise pasted on the wall. I almost had a heart attack you know, until I read the notice.

Good grief..! That wasn't funny, I tell ya!

She's been kept grounded in the boarding area. Poor meow meow!

My lovely kitchen clock

This is the clock that I have hanging on my kitchen wall. Don't you think it's pretty...?

My Thursday quote

"I believe in pink. I believe laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing; kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." - Audrey Hepburn

Came across this quote of hers and love it so much I would like to share it here.

Have a great day, everyone!

Happy Days!

Last Sunday, after a tough exam the day before, I decided to head over to Amcorp Mall’s flea market. ST had been bugging me to go there for months and I thought, since I needed some distraction, I agreed to his suggestion this time round.

I complained to him before that I found the so called “flea market” at The Curve (if it is actually categorized as flea market at all) to be more like a day time “night market”. And he told me that I should check out the one in Amcorp Mall.

And true to his words, I found a lot of the “really” old stuffs being displayed there by mostly passionate and enthusiastic collectors. You can find items ranging from antiques, records, collectibles, arts and crafts, household products, homemade food, toys to second hand items.

And wow, what a great time I had, though it was a little too noisy to my liking. Maybe it’s because of the fasting month, they had stages and people singing and shouting over the microphone, later in the afternoon, performing some stage show or something.

Anyway, I took some pictures, those stuffs that attracts my interest and attention and I would like to share it with you here.

All sorts of old looking stuffs, though I am not sure if they are really old. See, they even have horse shoes on sale. These are real ones, ok! Can’t see? Here’s another clearer picture.

                                   Want to know what attracted me to this picture?

See the axe on the right? That was used to chop off human heads before. When I heard that, I almost fainted! And it is REAL heavy, I tell ya! If not properly handled, it can just drop down and chop off your feet. 

Eeerm... knowing how clumsy I am, I almost did! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

I love bells, and these are OLD bells, with really intricate design as handle, really nice…!!!

And this...! My nephew, little Jet will love these…………!!!

Used for wayang kulit. They look rather new  to be old though..

This is a radio, very unique looking, eh..? And I like the miniature figures in front of it. Click on picture if you can't see clearly here.

Amongst the flea market, there is a tiny little shop that sells all the imported items for kitchen and study use, brought in from Europe. Oh how I love all the things inside. The shop is called Brunelleschi, operated by a Malay lady.

 I would love to have this kettle clock on my kitchen wall..! It's so unique and cool..!

                                                                 This is nice too! 

                                               And this....!!! I want them all....!

                                                         Love this little cabinet

                                                             And I want this too..!

Stamps, old old stamps from all over the world..!!!

 These are old, you can be sure...

                       Not sure if these are old, but they certainly look old from far..

I am not sure what they are, but they look impressive. Here’s another larger picture.

                                      Old cameras...!!! Where to find them nowadays...?

Geeee, don't you just love those old irons..? Don't think I am envious of those people using it at that time, but I do appreciate their "old-ness"...

                                               Would like to have this train...

                                              Don't you just love this type writer...?

There were plenty more stuffs which I would love to highlight here, but I wasn’t allowed to take pictures. Stuffs such as old intricate tea spoons (that looks like it was used by the people living in the Victorian era, Elizabeth era, etc), lovely fridge magnets, etc, etc..
