An experiment with jello led to this rather intriguing piece of art.
BTW...I'm now the proud owner of the new Archer book. Saving it for the weekend. Perhaps I should finish it before the new year. 3 more days folks before 2006 comes a knocking.

When you've set your eyes on a book, listen to your heart and buy the damm thing. Don't compromise with other books. This is exactly what I did the week before christmas and since then I've been wading through my present book. I can hardly blame the present book for failing to entertain me to the fullest. I suspect it's my subconcious mind, preventing me from enjoying my book. I intend to rectify this problem by buying the very book which I've been obsessing over ever since I turned the first page in the bookstore... False Impression by Jeffrey Archer,
And by doing this, may I finally be allowed to enjoy a good read and be transported to another world...instead of the jerky visits I've been made to put up with.

I think of myself as an optimist...to the point of pollyanna-ism. And so I look forward to this christmas break quite a bit. Apart from the obvious eating I'll be doing...there's the reintroduction to my own things at home. I hope one day to be able to ( like ALICE of the wonderland ) think of ten impossible things before getting out of bed.

We lepak In a good way. This is us on a cool saturday afternoon in the KLCC park doing what we enjoy. Sitting down and enjoying the very moment we're in instead of hurrying through shopping...talking endlessly on my handphones or even chatting incessantly to friends. This is us doing what we enjoy.

I love telur mata kerbau. A little poke and the yoke squishes out and oozes. When we were younger, my brother and I had half boiled eggs for breakfast every day...until the brother convinced mum he saw a chicken's wing in his morning breakfast. Being younger and impressionable....I opted to believe him. Our morning menu changed to bread and cheese instead.

It is hard in a few words to describe the exact taste of roti tissue. I shan't waste your time by indulging in a namby-pamby description two paragraphs long with no substance in between. If the overall enjoyment of meal, I need only say ....it was extremely satisfactory.There simple, womanly and refreshingly honest.Pictured above is Adda......whose wide smile confirms the delectable taste.

You will enjoy "The Chronicles of Narnia" as much as I did, because it really is a lovely movie to have watched. One of the rare times I thank my shoddy powers of retention. Despite having read the book...many parts were refreshingly new to me. Of the 4 children....my favourite is Lucy. Edmund is a real stinker and I don't much care for him. Oh yes and I quite liked the Faun as well.
We had a good meal at "Little Penang Cafe" this afternoon. Between the four of us, the wee table we were seated at looked full of plates, glasses, forks, spoons,chopsticks and elbows. I opted for a cleansing glass of chinese tea whilst the others had more diabetic-inducing drinks. It was hard to decide on what to eat. ( At this point, having 4 stomachs seemed appealing.)
My feet hurt. It's those awful heels. They say women withstand great pain in the name of beauty. And whoever "they" are...they're absolutely right. I'm now seated slouched at the pc with my poor feet up. There's a nagging ache from the ankle down and a very definitely wincing-type pain from the left ball of the feet. *oouch* Oooh just had a thought, would manolo blahniks cost less pain?

Guess what's in the papers this morning?? That's right, an article about healthy eating....the japanese way. The next obvious step for any sensible being who has aspirations to live to 89 years old...is to find the nearest Japanese restaurant and be a frequent diner there. ( And for those of you who cook...buy a book on japanese cooking ) Guess I'd better get used to the odd pong every now and again. A small price to pay for clear arteries and botox-like wrinkled free skin.

I went to KLCC with a purpose. And no it wasn't to spend money on self. I'd promised to buy cookies as a backup plan just in case we're hounded with guests ( a high possibility ) over the christmas holiday. Not only has Liz Claiborne ( refer to other blog "snob" for further details ) disappeared from the face of KLCC.... the cookie corner has now been taken over by Haagen Dazz. As much as I'm a fan of HD ice-cream I was miffed to return home cookie-less.
Dinner was Nippon blah blah japanese. Interesting although there was a small bowl beside me with strands of pickles reeking of wet socks. That certainly put a damper on the appetite. No complains re salmon. Once again salmon and wet socks don't go at all well together.
The picture above is of the other bowl to my left. Looked dodgy but it tastes extremely delightful. I savoured every morsel and ignored the wet sock pong to my right.

Some days you just feel like yelling your head off. Today is just such a day for me. Now I'm off to do some reading and sip guava juice. For 15 minutes I'm going to pretend I'm in some far away resort with no stress....no bloody handphones...just the sound of waves splashing on the shore with the light cool evening breeze caressing my cheek as it makes its way to the other end of the world.

A quick trip to Body Shop ..... became a prolonged visit. I sniffed my way through most of the essential arometherapy oils ( my sensitive nose denies me the pleasure of having this contraption at home) . I mulled over the idea. The salesperson politely mulled over the idea together. The pace changed somewhat when faced with shower gels. ( Not allergic to them..therefore..potential buys make the heart go pitter patter )Furiously worked my nose through them all. After 4 consecutive sneezes....I decided on these three.
