I’m back for the time being. It’s been a month since I’ve written anything. For those who sensed my absence, that is.

Life’s a bore, honestly.

My fingers are pressing the ‘Settings’ button back and forth.

Can give a quick guess Mei Lean?


Boredom Strikes.

No, nothing to fascinate you today either. Besides cleaning and rearranging the furniture in my room. It looks surprisingly spacious right now. And yes, there’s room for you to waltz as well.

Anyway, I found something something interesting when I was reading my dad’s blog:


A traveler once came to the masjid to see the Prophet Muhammad ( S.A.W) after greeting the prophet, he was asked where he was from. The traveler replied that he came from very far just to get a few questions answered.
Following is the dialogue between the traveler and the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH ),SAW;
Traveller : I do not want azab (punishments) to be written in my account.
Prophet : Behave well with your parents
Traveller : I want to be known amongst people as an inteligent person.
Prophet : Fear Allah, always.
Traveller : I want to be counted amongst Allah’s favourites.
Prophet : Recite Quran every morning and evening.

Let’s say you’re too lazy to prepare something fancy for dinner and you’re hungry. Here’s a simple dish that would satisfy your taste buds. Very quick, very easy.

You need a pumpkin, some turnips, carrots, Holland onions, garlic, rosemaries, salt, pepper and some olive oil. So, what you do first is you dice some pumpkins, slice the turnips and Holland onions, and cut the carrots into any shape that makes you happy. I would prefer the carrots being cut into thick matchstick figures. Cut all these ingredients (The pumpkin, turnips, Holland onions, and carrots) according to the amount that you want. Put in a baking tray.

Next, the garlic. What you do with the garlic is you take the side of the knife and just press it down firmly. Make sure you cut the top and the bottom of the garlic but don’t worry about its skin. Just mix it all together with the previous ingredients in the baking tray. The garlic leaves a fantastic flavour to the dish. Then, add some rosemaries, and sprinkle a bit of salt, pepper and olive oil. Mix everything and just pop it in the oven.

And there you go, it’s done.

This dish is absolutely healthy and fast to prepare. So, why not give it a try?

Caught Up.

Who knew manga reading can be so exhausting. Been juggling with two different ones for the last two hours. This is what happens when you can read ’em online.

I’m a sucker for shoujo mangas. -_-;

Good day, mate!

For once, I had the pleasure of watching the Spaniard’s bottom being kicked hard by an unseeded Frenchman, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. I’ve never seen Tsonga play in any of the matches in the 2008 Australian Open before but this guy can seriously give one hell of a brilliant forehand. Fantastic shots throughout the whole game. He delivered such a strong performance against Nadal. To top it all up, he didn’t even drop a single set against the number two seed. It’s amazing to see Tsonga maintain his level of play throughout the two hour game (It was more or less two hours). Tsonga took every single ball that was given to him beautifully and gave a total of more than fifteen aces. In a way, it looked as if Nadal was playing against himself.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga celebrating his victory after defeating Rafael Nadal; 6-2, 6-3, 6-2.

Anyway, the Spaniard deserves some credit too I suppose because he didn’t screw the game that much either. He played fairly well. But to see him lose three straight sets was a little surprising, I have to say. I expected a tough battle since it’s Nadal we’re talking here. But then, only one can go to the finals isn’t it? No need to shed tears here people, there’s still plenty of opportunities coming soon. Don’t take this newcomer too lightly though! Honestly, you gotta have some serious guts to face one of the best tennis players in the world. Nadal of all people.


Anyway, a big congratulations to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga again for a spectacular game. Kick some ass in the Finals today.

Three Days (Part II)

Alright, it was last Tuesday. Carol invited Han Lyn, Samantha, Jiun Mei and I for lunch. Both Jiun Mei and Carol will be heading to Australia on Thursday to further their studies there. I’ve never hung out with this bunch of people actually. But seriously, they are rather interesting. And it was the first time I had an outing without watching a movie. Usually it’ll just be movies with friends, grocery shopping with my dad or shopping with my mother.

I was about half an hour late. I still had a chance to sneak in Coffee Bean and give Atiqah & Fatimah a quick visit. Met the rest of the group later and decided to have lunch at T.G.I Fridays. So, when Carol mentioned T.G.I, there was just one thing that crossed my mind. It’s expensive. There was a big invisible sweat dropping from the side of my head (Imagine the ones you see in animes). But what the heck kan? Since everyone’s up for it. We then started doing what we do best. Pictures! All cameras were out but before that we had to place an order first. We had to browse the menu several times. The cheapest dish was about RM21.90. The waiter asked us to take our time selecting and we most definitely did.

Han Lyn had an issue though. She claimed that her fettuccine looked like puke and that instantly half-killed her appetite. So, we tried switching our food. I had two large sandwiches and was quite full after finishing one. Actually there’s nothing wrong with her fettuccine. The sauce however tasted extremely rich and left an aftertaste at the back of your tongue which makes you crave for more water. God knows how many boxes of cream they put inside the sauce. Carol tried helping as well, but we just can’t swallow it.

Han Lyn delivered the pictures already and I’ll be posting it soon. You can check her blog for the time being for some photos. So, we spent the rest of the evening hanging out and menceroboh Forever 21. We browsed around and tried some shades that simply made us look like a bunch of Willy Wonkas! Coffee Bean was our last stop for the day. We enjoyed some good coffee and company there.

All the best in Australia Jiun Mei and Carol. Gambatteh! =3
