Only seven days left until Chinese New Year? And you still haven’t finished or started shopping, yet? Well, you’re not alone. In less than a week, I will be going home and I haven't even started shopping yet!

What if I can't find the red high heels shoes that I like? What if I found the shoes that I like but Size 6 is out of stock? What if I can't find the sexy red dress lovely and not-so-sexy outfits? What if I can't find a bag to match the new outfits? What if I can't get anything at all after spending the whole day in a shopping mall?


Yes, it’s true.

Shopping with ladies can be very, very difficult, sometimes. I feel sorry for mybb. I really do.

But, but..., at least we can spend time together!

A bowl of bee hoon with FULL of prawns, chicken strips, bean sprouts and omelette strips.

Simple yet tasty.

That is Ralph's own version of Sarawak Laksa. Simply satisfying!!!

"What do you mean "one" of the most violent movies of all time? It "is" the most violent movie of all time!" -Sylvester Stallone.

We were invited to the special screening of Rambo 4: John Rambo To Hell And Back, filmed in Chang Mai (Northern Thailand) and directed by Sylvester Stallone himself. He looks really awesome in this movie. Who cares if Rambo looks older now! Stallone looks good at 60, better than most people at half of his age. Hell YES!

It features the Hollywood action hero going into Burma to rescue trapped Christian missionaries. No humour, no long dialogue, just pure combat, pure 1 against 100 sh*t in a jungle which contains extreme violence, tons of explosions and bloody-as-hell. Holy sheeet!! A great movie that totally absorbed all our attention. To those who are not into the genre, go watch some Disney cartoons or some romantic comedies.

It is just a movie but people should reflect on with the reality. He tries to tell us something, about what is happening (Right Now) in Burma. I faced death threats, says Sylvester Stallone.

At the end....

Go watch it! Is releasing today.

This movie, I am sure it will be a hit and a definite MUST WATCH! No question about it. Trust me, you'll be more excited for this than other action movies.

Wait! Wait!

This movie is classified as Restricted, ONLY for those who are 18 years and above. If you are under 18, wait until next year! *wink*

Oh, just one more thing. If those so called movie critics you don't agree with the story, just remember "Don't F*CK with Rambo… or he'll rip your f*cking throat out". "When you're pushed, killing's as easy as breathin."

Enjoy the popcorn movie!

Just to show you, some pictures of your favorite celebrities the power of makeup.

First, look at these pictures:

Now, go and look at yourself in the mirror. I bet you look good than...emmm...right?

With a good hairstylist, good airbrush, good fashion consultant, good lighting, and good photography, you can even look much "hotter" than you really are.

I think those amazing makeup artists deserve a great prize!

What's Hot? What's Not? Long and flowing? Medium and trendy? Short and punk funky? Sedu and sexy? Sticking up on Saturday night and slicked back on Monday morning? Heavy bangs or side bangs? Straight or curly? Gwyneth Paltrow or Victoria Beckham? (But be realistic!) Brown or red? Pink or purple?


The list of questions can be endless. Whatever hairstyle you choose, you still have to spend all day a few hours in a salon chair and burn a hole in your wallet even if you hate your new hairstyle. Yes?

Now, I'm ready to give it a go and find a new hairdresser. Hopefully, NOT end up with a horrid mullet.

mybb brought 100 sticks of satays back, not from Kajang, not from satay stalls by the roadside, but all the way from Sibu!

Everything was homemade, prepared by his mom who marinated the chicken and beef for many hours. *Thumbs up!*

Tasty peanut sauce.

Juicy chicken and beef satay.

And, NO flabby chicken skin threaded in between the meat pieces. That's the BEST thing!

I am one of the Glitterati Nuffnangers.

Thank You Nuffnang!!!

What can I get you bab' ?

*Ralph asked, a few weeks ago.*

Nothing could be finer than some cakes from Secret Recipe.

My only dilemma was deciding which one to try first.

Apple Crumble Cheese (RM5.50)

Spirulina Pineapple (RM5.80)

Hi Fibre Cream Cheese (RM6.50)

Tiramisu (RM5.50)

Yogurt Cheese (RM5.50)

I love all EXCEPT their 'Health Cake', Hi Fibre Cream Cheese.

These days, shoppers are spoilt for choice in shopping venues with three more major shopping malls launched last year in Malaysia; The Pavilion, Mid Valley The Gardens and Sunway Pyramid extensions.

We went to Mid Valley Megamall to buy some gifts for mybb's family and had a chance to check out The Gardens, second phase of Mid Valley which connected the both shopping mall with a roofed bridge. Like Starhill, it caters to a different market, the high-end market with exclusive international fashion labels. Isetan and Robinsons are the two main anchor tenants of The Gardens.

We wandered around. People are everywhere at the first phase, but not here. There are more security officers (dressed nicely in a full suit) patrolling inside than shoppers.

It also has a cinema on the 4th floor. We wanted to watch a movie but we were quite surprised as there were no cinema-goers around the ticketing counter. We found out it is a new boutique cinema concept with only Gold Class and Premiere Class halls, under the branding GSC Signature. There was this nice and friendly gentleman who is also working there offered to give a tour by showing us around. "Tour?" Wow!

As we stepped into the Malaysia's first 'boutique cinema', we were treated like royalty greeted warmly by all the staffs everywhere we went. Impressed. There are three internal food & beverage establishments within its premises – Cafe Caro Lounge, Restaurant Paradiso and a dessert bar.

GSC Signature will consist of only two Gold Class halls and five Premiere Class halls. The Gold Class halls equipped with full leather recliners seats with electronic reclining controls to allow you to adjust your seat and fall asleep lie back. Personalised service will be provided with just a touch of a button located at individual tables located in front of the leather recliners. While the Premiere halls equipped with the Paragon Milano twin seats with individual tables for your snacks.

This new concept in the movie going experience, however, comes with a price. Each ticket at the Premiere Class costs RM20 per seat while the Gold Class is RM60 per seat (inclusive of a complimentary drink and use of a blanket and cushion during the movie screenings).

After shopping, we watched National Treasure 2, of course, the ordinary cinema-goers like us won't pay RM60 each for a movie, where I would rather spend for a buffet dinner. What do you think?

Is there any other tea to reduce heat from the body or before the urine becomes rainbow dark orange color, like beer or to detoxify your body besides the super duper BITTER Wong Lo Kat Herbal Tea?

I forced myself to swallow it but the taste it left behind in my mouth was awful. Aargh! I cringed with every sip basically. I don’t know about you, but to me, it made me suffer a lot. OMG!!! Nonetheless, I kept reminding myself, a good medicine tastes bitter. Evidently, the Wong Lo Kat in can doesn't work as it tastes sweet.

I hate sore throat!

I guess I must eat more fruits too.

Like, this....?

Masako and Youki invited us for dinner at Pantai Seafood Restaurant (Non-Halal), in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara. Youki made a reservation because according to them, this place is always crowded.

Indeed, it was packed when we reached there last night and we didn't even know that there is a nice and huge restaurant in a place with many wooden houses, Malay food stalls and workshops.

You can find all the expensive crab here. Alaska Crab (RM 230++ per kg), Snow Crab (RM 183++ per kg), Live Mexico Geoduck Clams (RM 152++ per kg), Lobsters, Live Abalone, Japanese Snails....

Claypot Butter Crab with thick milky cream sauce.

Ostrich meat (It was our first time eating Ostrich meat. Very delicious. Tastes like deer meat).

Steamed Garoupa Fish with Soy Sauce.

Stirred Fried Asparagus.

Overall, good food and good company made the night!

Thanks to Masako and Youki. We had a good time!
