Couple Rings

I bumped into a couple during my most recent trip to the East Coast. I just arrived home at midnight, by the way. I find this couple really loving in the sense that they are always spotted wearing couple t-shirts. So, even though at first I didn't know that they are husband and wife, I could soon tell!

I came across this pair of couple platinum rings from joyjewelers.com just now and instantly thought of them. I want to let them know about it so that they could match these rings with their tops. That would be so funny. Don't you think so?

Flying On A Boeing 777-200!

Yahoo.... I got my tickets and I will be flying end May, on a Boeing 777-200. Yup! My travel plans for April and May are almost set. I'll be heading to Terengganu for a week very, very soon, where some of the places that I'm visiting are Redang Island and Kenyir Lake! 

But between this trip to the East Coast and that international trip, I have time to fit a couple of more trips. The question is, do I have the energy? 

I have already declined a four-day trip to Penang, as it follows soon after the week-long East Coast trip. Besides, I was in Penang just around New Year's Eve and that was only some 3.5 months ago. 

Anyway, am so excited. Yabadabadoooooo!!

Remembering MH370

The Prime Minister of Malaysia made a sad announcement last night that the flight MH370 has ended in the Indian Ocean. Although many had a foreboding sense of this outcome, the finality of the statement dashed whatever hopes that we had clung on to that somehow, there would be survivors.

To many of us, MH370 which went missing on March 8, 2014 with 239 passengers and crew on board, it is just a piece of news, or just a number, but it's a tragedy that has affected thousands of lives, whether directly or indirectly. 

With this post, even though there's nothing much that i could personally do, I hope that the families of passengers and crew members will find peace of mind and come to terms with reality soon. One could only imagine the anguish of going though such a catastrophe.

Sad About MH370

Although I am not directly affected by the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which at this point, more than 50 hours since the plane lost contact, is still declared as "missing", I too feel sad about the incident. 

I am sure that it also strikes fear in many people's heart, especially those who travel frequently or have family members who do so. 

Based on the Air France flight which also disappeared in a similar manner in 2009, I think that for those who are affected, especially immediate family members, have to try to move on. The mystery of the Air France crash took three years to resolve, and this will probably take just as long. 

Meanwhile, all we can continue to do is to pray; for the recovery of the wreckage, and for peace in our hearts.

Charm Bracelets

Many of my girlfriends are quite caught up in designing their charm bracelets. I thought that these are charming, especially when each charm has its own story, and I was tempted to get a bracelet for myself. 

However, after giving it much more thought, I decided not to get one for myself. I don't have the time nor money to indulge in charm bracelets, and besides, I am a no-frills person who don't fancy accessories. 

I appreciate the concept, though, and am planning to help my friends in adding more charms to their bracelets! That would be more fun, I think.

Tablet Rosak

I am upset... my Huawei tablet that I won in a contest some 1.5 years ago is out of order. The touch screen doesn't response anymore, although I still can turn the tablet on.

Well, I went to a tablet repair shop, and they say they don't have spare part and that they need to take my tablet along to China to get a replacement. Can't they just take along the model number? 

So, I came home and found that there is a Huawei service centre in Ipoh, but they also said that they do not stock spare part and I would have to wait FOUR weeks. 

And they can't even tell me how much it would cost me to repair it. So, I said, find out and get back to me. I hope it's under RM200. Otherwise, it's beyond economical repair. 

Sad!

Kenny G

My friend told me that she had the opportunity to watch Kenny G live in concert not too long ago, and I tell you, I am so, so envious! 

I used to like Kenny G a lot when I was younger. It was definitely a long time ago, but I remember that at one point, I really thought of taking up the saxophone too! I was reminded of it when I came across a selmer saxophone from musicians friend.

I wonder how much he has changed physically, after so many years...hahahah. According to my friend, he is still HOT. Yummy!
