So, Where Can You Find Me Next?

Hi everyone.

It has been a while, yes. I am aware of that. Things have been extremely hectic over the last few years that I have neglected my me-time to write in here.

However, good things come to those who wait.

I have created a new blog, a more of grown-up sort of blog called The Fickle Mind of A Foxy Chick. Feel free to drop by and read all my rants on my everyday life through my oh-so fickle mind, okay?

This blog will now be officially stopped from any new post starting from today onwards.

So, see you there then.

What Can I Write On Hedonism?

Hey all.

It's a group assignment and we have agreed to do this paper on Hedonism. Truthfully, genuinely, honestly... I have not been exposed to this eight letter words, H-E-D-O-N-I-S-M up until the gang decided to proceed with this topic. How interesting!

And to the betterment of my understanding (I suppose?), I was given the task to complete the essay on 'what is hedonism' and 'where does it originated from?' How refreshing!

And after few hours spent on the web, I have come across many philosophical websites and articles, and each of the confusing words and sentences are now boggling in my head! Oh, and I have come across this photo while searching on Hedonism online! *grins*

Hedonism it is. Oh dear.

Let The Countdown Begins

Today is 12th June 2012 and let the countdown begins? *wink*

I will be a year older in 6 more days and truthfully, I think this year is the worst year for me. All the mean-and-not-so-fun things are lined up just before I'm turning 31 and that is just simply greatttt! Not.

Let me list out 'em so we can have a look at it and decide how bad it will affects my life? Haha...
  • I am unemployed, therefore, it means no work for me (yayy!) but at the same time there is no money for me to spend on new shoes or fancy little knick knacks whenever I am in dire need of glorious retail therapies (yikes)
  • My final exam  for this semester falls on the 16th, 17th and 23rd of June (unfortunately - no parties for me this year, I supposed. As I will definitely be partying with zillions of law cases that I have to read for exam - well, pretty sucks I must say - Anthony vs Belle, Brendan vs Catherine *yawn*)
  • I have gained a bit of weight - which, at this stage of my life (in my 30s), I despise every additional pounds shown on the bathroom scale everytime I stepped on it and it is beyond worst than ever when what I do to stop it is, err... NOTHING. (I've got to do something to overcome this. I know. But, I am just too lazy. Any suggestions?)
  • My love relationship? Haha... This is undoubtedly out of the question! It's an unspeakable topic for me recently, since I have nothing to talk about. Perhaps, I was desperately looking for a job that I totally forgot all about this matter? One thing for sure, I am definitely going to find one great job then only I will think about getting myself stuck and tangle in a love relationship; pun intended.
In order to overcome this knotty and destructible problems of mine, I have come out with a list of things I wanted you to get them for me my birthday wishlist! 
  • Keating on Construction Contracts 9th Ed. - I know I have gone insane when an educational book is one of the item listed in the things-I-want! But this book cost about £400 for one book! 
  • A treat to hair salon - I have not done anything to my hair for quite a while now and I think my hair is hating me at the moment that sometimes I hear them talk among themselves how they despise me! 
  • A new mobile phone perhaps? - My Blackberry is acting up lately that I was so close of throwing it to a nearest bin only to realize that is the only phone I have. Haha... I sort of been contemplating to get an iPhone, but... hmm, anyone? *wink*
  • A new job? - Simple as that.
  • A manicure & a pedicure treatment - It is always fun to be pampered, once in a while? No? 
  • Cash - Yes. It is just not fun to be skint for so long. Trust me on this. I know. 
  • A pair of new  heels? - This too, has been a while.
  • A fare ticket to someplace in Europe? I missed Europe. I really do.
Well, that is all I could think of at this very moment. :) I will add in more when I have come across more things that I want! In the meantime, block your calendar - it's on the 18th June 2012. *wink*

Let the countdown begins!

Let's Go Bananas!


I love bananas! I think it is a good snack on the go. It is good for an energy booster for you to start your day in the morning, after a tiring workout session, on your break for a quick snack before getting back to work and many other great benefits of this yellow fruit!

Not to mention, I love the fact that this fruit contain many nutritional facts that undoubtedly is good for your health and well-being (if consume in moderate amount, of course).

So, what are you waiting for? Let's go bananas! *twirl, dance & dance*

What's It Worth?

Hello, people. It has been a while since I last posted, but alas... even though it is, I am still at my current status of being unemployed. Things have been tough. Or was it because, I am being over-dramatic in choosing the right job specification?

I mean, we have to choose correctly in order to settle in with the best working environment and not to mention, the appropriate pay altogether? How would it be possibly right to be in a position where you ought to work like there is no tomorrow but only earning, err.. pennies?

Since I have officially becomes 'Mom's maid' as I am the one who is preparing dinner, well... I must say, I have the excellent skills that one could never imagined! On the other hand, I think I have been putting up weight and that is all mainly because I have been cooking yummy, deliciously, unbeatable home-cooked cuisine for the past month and a half! *grins*

I suppose, say, if the footballers are out of footballs for their game in World Cup that is coming soon, then they are welcome to use me as one of the ball! See. I have become rounder, closer to a portrait of a football!

I have entirely giving up in looking for a job, at least for this past two days. While I was browsing through the jobs offered; let it be in the newspapers or even in the jobseekers website, it is all then filtered to this one simple question; what am I looking for in a job, really? Up to this point, I don't even recognize anymore of who I wanted to be, as in what kind of job am I dying to do anymore. That is probably the biggest challenge that I have to date. I don't even know what I want to do!

I mean, yeah. I know I was a Quantity Surveyor in a consultancy firms all these while. But do I really want to continue working in a consultancy line, like until death do us apart? I would be delighted to be offered to work in an oil and gas stream, that would be awesome and the thought of me being in that industry, already gives me a mini-orgasm, but then again... will I be qualified and worthwhile for them?

See. I have been to an oil and gas industry's interviews, twice! The first one, well... let's just say, I failed miserably. It was a 45-minutes phone interview, and it was the shittiest day of my life not knowing what else to talk about while the HR executive on the other line was giving me silent responses everytime I answered his God-knows-what-sorts of questions!

For the second interview, luckily it was a face to face interview. There were three panels altogether and at least, this is great as I can see if they smirked or frown if I did not answer them correctly! It went alright, I must say and it lasted for about an hour. I was having the best of my time blabbering and chatting away things I know would interest them, work-wise. Unfortunately, they did not come back to me and it has been a week and two days when they were saying that they will let me know in a week time. Or less. I have queried them by email but sadly, they don't even bother to reply me at all! I mean, how difficult for them to just send me an email and let me know whether they are processing it, I did not get the job or they will proceed my application for the second interview? At least, reply and let me know what is going on! Or maybe, I was not worth their time at all and therefore, they decided to just ignore me like a dead plant in a pot? This is so heart-crushing for me, most definitely!

So, there you go. This is why I am not that happy for these past few days. In fact, I am still not happy now. Well, there goes my extremely lengthy post for this week! *grins*

Take care and have a nice day! xxx

Saturday it is.


After all, it is Saturday and you have all the reasons to smile, don't you? *grins*

Do you know that it takes more muscles to smile than it does to frown? And I have stumbled upon Meganmooren's Blog with her list of How To Burn Calories - Without Even Knowing It.
It's a good read. I had fun reading it and I am sure you will too. Go and find out!

So, a smile eh? What about that? The sight of anyone smiling in front of you is addictive. A smile is, undoubtedly addictive. Your smile will bring smiles to others around you. A smile creates sparks of fun that happily explodes in you that creates funny feeling inside the heart and it soothes the body, mind, and soul. No matter how sad you are at that very moment, try to smile and trust me, somehow, you will release the negativity and bad vibes inside you and then you will be happier and relaxed altogether!

There are millions of reasons to smile but here are some general ideas that will put a smile on your face:-

Photo credit: Me
  •  it makes us attractive (would you rather approach a person who is smiling at you or someone who frowns at you? See! When you smile, it attract others. People will be drawn to you! So, start smiling, but make sure it is a genuine one though! :) )
  • it changes our mood (whenever you feel low, try to smile and see/feel the difference!)
  • it relieves stress (it has been tested and found in a medical documentation that a smile is in fact, a natural relief for a stress. So, why don't you smile for a second? Beside relieves stress, it makes you healthier, and can help you live a longer and happier life!)
  • it lowers your blood pressure (the best and inexpensive cure, don't you think so? What more could you ask for?)
  • it makes you happier (it is a natural drug, if some of you didn't know that!)
  • it makes you look younger (probably people will thought that you are much younger that you are! How cool is that? :) )
 In case any of you forgot how to smile, here are some suggestions of how you can do it! 

Thus, why wait? Smile! Why don't you give it a try to the one next to you now and see how the magic works!

Happy Saturday, people! xxx

Flu Attack

I am officially down with flu. *sneeze*

Photo credit: GoesHealth
It's torturing and irritating when you are caught with this infectious disease, for sure! Plus, you will not be the most favorable person to be with - chit chat over coffee, watch telly, gossiping, shopping and all of other thinkable things that you would usually do with a friend, mother, daughter, sister, girlfriend or even colleague! None of the above can be done without having to blow your nose every, err... nano second?

Here, things I can't live without when I have a "flu attack":-

1) A stack of fresh tissue paper (preferably one box of Klennex would do for a day!)
2) A dozen cups of yummy hot honey lemon (the hotter the better!!)
3) A telly remote (it is excellent if you could have it all by yourself so you have the privilege to flick through channels whatever and whenever you want to!) 
4) A couple of DVDs - when you had enough with whatever is shown on telly (best if you could stocked up on chick flicks & sappy romantic movies - so that if you feel like you want to shed some tears to the storyline, people won't notice anyway, they'll think you are just having a severe flu!)
5) A pack of flu pills (this is great especially if you are facing those runny-nose-moment-that-feels-like-a-niagara-falls-rushing-down ~ it helps you to have a calm and an uninterrupted sleep. Don't take more than the prescribed dose, though... or you will never wake up!)

Yes. That are most like it. Are there any other things that I have missed? Enlighten me with your suggestions, I would be delighted to try 'em out! *grins*

Take care and speak soon!!! xxx *sneeze*

Guten Tag ~ Good Day

Do you speak German?

Well, I don't. *grins* But, I have once had a German housemate once and I have told him my interest on the language! I mean, imagine if say, me... I am a girl from Malaysia, who can speak German language fluently? That would simply amazed people from all over the country, I'd say?

What do you think? *rolling eyes*

Therefore, for a start... let's have this, shall we?

Order a schadenfreude movie on DVD now!

Now, well said... isn't it? *twirl*

Demoiselle en Détresse

I just came back from sending my brother to a workshop to get my dad's car. It was sent there few days ago due to a broken window. The workshop is located in Petaling Jaya. Being me, a demoiselle en détresse when it comes to roads and directions, of course I obviously, have strayed from the flock and went the opposite direction from home!

Photo credit: Me

Based on some relevant studies made, it has been said that we use only 10% of our brain. Is that the reason why at times, (or is it most of the times?), that I could not find my way out when I am nowhere to be found in an unfamiliar neighborhood? Or does that has something got to do with me being a lefty? *grins*

I have been told about this myth millions of times before, (especially when I got myself lost in the middle of nowhere!), that lefty crowd are very hopeless when it comes to their sense of directions. Shockingly, there are even forums created just to discuss on this matter! Maybe it is not just a myth, after all? Or maybe it is just another reason for me to point out so as to cover my clumsy idiotic self? Me being a complete fruitcake with a cherry on top! Haha...

While I was typing this entry at this very moment, two of my cats are sitting down in front of me and cleaning themselves off. They lick their paws clean. Then roll on the floor, flailing their tails and meowing. Cats. Oh, and don't forget their cute, innocent faces looking at you!

Photo credit: Me
And at that very moment, I thought of; how would it be to be as happy as a cat where you don't have to think about anything at all and just be worried about which part of the fur that need to be extra groomed? Which paws have I not cleaned earlier? Or, when should I meows to get the attention to be fed. Instead of not to get lost in a maze of streets and signboards?

But then again, I am happy with who and what I am now. I don't mind being stuck in a traffic of a God-knows-what-street-name have I got myself lost into ~ who knows, while I was searching for the right directions, I will somehow meet that adorable someone whom I soon be with? (in your dreams! haha...) Or being a lefty. Truthfully, I have discovered that lefty, in fact, has so many phenomenal characteristics, which I strongly believed (or I'd like to make myself believe!) that the righty are extremely envy me for! *grins*

What about  you? What do you think?

Got to now. Until then, take care. xxx
