I'm taking train to work today. Like always, the infamous KTM always cancel their train causes the next train to be packed like sardine can. Today, one of the lady being pushed out of the train as it is so packed, she smacked the door, screamed curses and called the train station and curses some more. Sigh... what a scene!
Living in KL surrounded with all the concrete jungle sometimes I am clueless on where to spend the weekend. National Zoo, Bird Park, Museum, Aquaria, watching movies, its like wearing off on me already. I need some new place where can give me new refreshment on spending the weekend. So I did a little research on some of the interesting place that worth to try nearby KL area.
1. Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, Kuala Gandah, Pahang
This is the home of homeless elephant, just 45 minutes drives from Kuala Lumpur. The fun part of this place is there is no entrance fee if you go by yourself (No tour agent), but you are most welcome to donate if you want as this elephant is in need of milk and so on. Visit (here) for more information on how to go to this place.
2. Batu Arang, Selangor
This former coal mining town is situated in North Selangor. There are one big goats farm here where you can see how milking process happened, how goat cheese is produce and so on. You can also stay overnight in this goats farm as they have guest house available for rent. Here is the address for more detail.
Sheeptrade Enterprise (M) Sdn Bhd
Pusat Ternakan Haiwan (Rusa)
R4 Jalan Ladang Caledonia
48100 Batu Arang, Selangor
Tel: 00-603-6035 2808
These are the only two that I find interesting. Maybe you can suggest to me other places that I never heard off?
Today after lunch, when I got in the office it's like I am in Bollywood, with loud Bhangra music playing on the radio in the restaurant at the back of my office. So I wonder what is the occasion, turns out that today is Vaisakhi day. So I take this opportunity to wish all my Sikh friends, Happy Vaisakhi!
This week elimination for American Idol as everyone know is Pia. Actually I already quite suspected it. Pia seems to be only good in ballad. Last Wednesday proved that she can actually sing other genre but maybe that is not enough to keep her in another week or maybe too late.
I read in yahoo today about few fashion statement that we women love but it's a turn off for men. I have few says on it to share with you guys.
1. Ugg Boots
I saw these in one of shoe store in Sunway Pyramid, I think it's cute. If we have winter here in Malaysia, I'll definitely wear these. I can understand why men hate it though, it looks like one of the boots the construction worker will wear, or probably children. Definitely not sexy but it's CUTE!
2. Over sized Sunglasses
This is my biggest crime, I cant live without big sunnies. I like the facts that they can make woman look sexy especially if you choose the one that is perfect for your face shape. I feel like, it make me mysterious and people cant tell whether I am flirting or I am just sleeping. But I agree that most guys don't like it, few of my friends (guys) told me it make me look like a grasshopper.
I love Jumpsuits. You can wear it formally and casually. And with jumpsuit, you don't have to worry about matching your tops with your pants. I don't understand why man don't like it. Its practical and trendy. However, one of my friend which is a girl also kind of dislike jumpsuit, she said it makes woman look like a maid! Totally ridiculous.
4. Red Lipstick
Really? It never occurred to me that guys don't like red lipstick. For me red lipstick is totally a sexual things. I don't really wear it because it screams daring and power of women. It takes courage to wear red lipstick. Overdoing it make you look cheap. However, I do wear it for certain special occasion. I like the facts that it make me feel sexy and make my teeth appear whiter.
5. Harem Pants
I remember the days that Harem Pants used to be big. MC Hammer is the father of Harem Pants. As a matter of fact, I own Harem Pants. Only wear it once though because my boyfriend totally hate it. He said I look like a granny! What a shame because Harem Pants totally comfortable. I love it, really! It has this funky and folk look to it. What a shame..
6. Socks with sandal
I never wear those. But I think if you really know how to pull it off, it definitely look trendy. What do you think?
Here are few more trends that I fond off, do you think it is sexy or no-no.
I've been having muscle pain on my feet few days before. I think it is because I didn't sit properly and there's not enough space for me to stretch my leg at my desk. This morning I just moved all the file on the other side, problem solved!
Whoever follow American Idol Season 10 must be shocked that Casey got the lowest vote last week. It is unbelievable. I personally think it is because last week he is unwell as the effect of ulcerative colitis (sore of colon and intestine), which required blood transfusion hence he is barely there during the competition and was totally absent on one of the elimination night. I think it is definitely the right time and very wise that the judges used their only say to save him. I just a bit worried that it will happen again this week. Hard to say when it comes to people's vote. I really hope that Casey will make it to final or at least semi-final. He is totally unique to be missed off.
After so much drama for the past few weeks, Master Chef US finally came to an end in Starworld yesterday. I am so pleased that the title goes to sweet little Whitney. This is a bit disappointment to me because I am so hoping that Lee Knaz would be in the final but nevertheless David and Whitney deserved it. It such an interesting final competition (Whitney dropped her entrée on the floor 10 minutes before the time) and I am amazed at how they manage the time and emotions. Anyway, cant wait for the next season!
Note: do you think that the judge, Joe; is a bit sexist?

I love Nuffnang, really! It makes blogging interesting. I know lots of blogger through it. Wonderful, young and talented bloggers. But lately I feel disappointed on how Nuffnang justified bloggers. I am not talking about how they manage the advertisement in our blog. It's great, fair and square. No complaint about it. But on how they justified bloggers on contest i.e movie tickets give away.
I normally don't complain about things. And for this small contest, it's petty for me. But I do feel that some of the bloggers, especially students they deserve some recognition. I see that Nuffnang have favors for certain bloggers. They get movie tickets over and over again. (You can see on Innit, some people updated that they get movie screening few times in a row). I did also send few (more than 5) entry for those contest, and as you can see I never got one.
Maybe some people will say, this is word of jealousy. But honestly, I am not. I am not talking about myself but for all my other blogger friends. We all support Nuffnang, Nuffnang is in that level now because of each and every single blogger that register with them. Don't you think that it's fair to give a small credit to all of us? Think about it. I know Nuffnang started to give movie tickets for birthday, I will see into that. Lets hope Nuffnang keep their words. Or maybe it just for certain people???
