before the world ends

I figured I should blog before I never get the chance to do so ever again.

a few weeks back, I lost a dear friend to a car accident. it was unexpected and shocking, to say the least. close friends felt the lost.. there was, and still is, I’m sure, an immense feel of sadness and grief amongst friends. his friends flew in to see him one last time, no matter where they were. friends dropped whatever they were doing and rushed back for his wake and funeral. despite the grimness of the atmosphere, I felt the love that everyone had (and still have) for him. it was, suffice to say, quite inspiring.

Each day I pray for friends and his family to find the strength to get up and move forward. not to forget him but to move on with their lives, and face each day as if it’s their last. he would’ve wanted us to be strong. he would’ve wanted us to celebrate his life by living ours the best way we can. the best way to mourn for a person is not by crying that he died, but by remembering the great times that you’ve had together.

so here’s to you, Dennis Chua. may you rest in peace. thank you for blessing me with your friendship and everlasting smile.

wid and i were walking aimlessly in one utama the other day and decided to just stroll into dorothy perkins. “just go and see lah.”, not expecting to find anything nice in particular.

and then we saw it.

the bag. no, lemme rephrase: THE bag. the one i have to have.

the downside?
it’s rm136.

and all i have with me now is less than rm50.

can die like this. sigh. goodbye, Bag. it wasn’t meant to be.

she’s heavy and she ain’t my sister.

the golden rule of surviving a 1-hour school assembly: never choose to sit behind a weight-challenged teacher. just because your good self, who’s also slightly *cough* “weight-challenged”, knows how to properly sit without taking up people’s leg space, doesn’t mean the said teacher who is “slightly more” challenged in the weight department knows how to as well.

that said, it’s only 5 more days til i leave this school.

handbags and gladrags.

May 5, 2008 at 11:49 pm (random) ()

i don’t really feel like talking about uni stuff now. so i’ll just talk about what i love best (next to good food of course…)

i’m a sucker for handbags. the only thing stopping me from collecting handbags is the fact that i can’t afford to buy too many of them. like many hobbies, it can be quite expensive. especially when the ones i like happen to be the expensive ones. mum says i cannot afford my taste (no, really?). “you’re always spending my money buying things you cannot afford,” she would say. what she doesn’t get is the feeling you get after purchasing something that is worth every cent. i know you can get a bag that is as nice at a cheaper price, but it’s just not the same anymore, is it? (and i am by no means suggesting that everybody should splurge on a bag that costs you half a year’s allowance.. really. i love bags and all, but i’m still practical and level-headed.)

Gryson’s “Sydney” Bag
i’ve never liked handbags with long sling straps before, but i’ve been wanting one since last year. out of the blue, yes. i guess i got tired of hobo bags and tote bags. i just love the look that a handbag with a long strap gives you. so chic!

Marc by Marc Jacobs Softy Messenger Bag
this marc jacobs softy messenger bag is out of this world! it’s simple and yet the design is so intricate, it makes the bag pop and stand out.

Miu Miu Ruched Frame Bag
and this has got to be my most favourite look so far..and the fact that it’s a Miu Miu bag just doesn’t help. do you have any idea how much a Miu Miu bag costs?? don’t even go there. i just wish i can get my hands on some cheap knock-off or something to remedy my obsession for this bag! sigh. it’s purple. it’s gorgeous. it’s got character.

and of course, every girl has her obsession for shoes. the only difference is the degree of obsession. i must say my obsession for shoes is still under control because i don’t buy shoes on a whim and just because they look nice. i don’t know how long that will last though, haha..

recently i’ve had this sudden incline towards peep-toe flats. i had a vincci one before, i loved it so much that i outwore the poor pair of shoes til they were frayed at the sides. they’re now on vacation in my shoe closet at home.

Loeffler Randall Cinched Peep Toe Flats
because you can never have too many black shoes that will look great with just any outfit. owee.

Loeffle Randall’s Embossed Snakeskin Flats
this peep-toe flats has suede and leather lining which can only mean one thing: ultimate comfort. and trust me, the number one thing i look for in a pair of shoes is whether or not it’s comfy. and i just love the design. x)

the only sad thing is that it’s hard to find handbags and shoes that are half as nice with an affordable price. makes me wonder: is it fair that only the rich can afford to look good? sucks how the world works, eh?

May 1, 2008 — “Touch My Body” singer Mariah Carey got secretly hitched to her 27-year-old boyfriend-of-one-month, shocking the chart-topping songbird’s family and friends, The Post has learned. Carey married little-screen actor Nick Cannon at the home Carey just bought in Eleuthera, the Bahamas, a source close to the singer said. — New York Post online.

Mariah is 38. Nick Cannon is 27. 11 years her junior. DAYMN! she’s joining the ranks of hollywood cradle snatchers. she mah nu hero now. :p

there weren’t any pre-nuptial agreements between the two because mariah reportedly didn’t want to sign one. what? woman, i know you’re rich and shit, but does that mean making a huge mistake like that?

let’s see how long this one lasts. but regardless of what happens, i’ll still love you mariah. nyeee.

p/s: so. wid. do we stick to calling her miss mimi or do we have to call her Madam Mimi now? hm.
