Living better?

Friday, June 29, 2007


I had a mini argument with emak on the same topic again...the reason why I ditched my fulltime job and decided to live a miserly life instead. I almost laughed out loud when she said the miserly part. She also asked me the same question which has been asked 16564x before. Don't I have a dream of living better like having a car like my cousins? I won't bluff anyone that I'm getting much much lesser that I used to but in my definition of living better, I am not living miserly. I still can eat good food and I have a shelter over my head. I don't need to pay road taxes or worry about the petrol price hike. It doesn't mean I don't wear jewellery that I cant afford it. I am not a typical woman who likes to accessorise myself. But I have a good camera and the xbox360 and ps3 to make me happy. hehehee. :P

I'm sorry to sort of disappoint you, emak, but I'm sticking to my decision to work on my own. Well, maybe ask me the same question again in a few years time. In the meantime, I hope you'll support me.

Operation Gain Weight

Monday, June 25, 2007


In the recent wedding assignment, the bride's mother told me I look smaller now compared to the last time I was the photographer at her daughter's engagement. A lot of people had been telling me the same thing too. I realised this myself especially after seeing through my pictures.

I've been to a dietician before I got married and did a weight-gain diet program which was successful a while but I lost more than I gain after that.

And pls don't start on weight-gain formula. The herbalife weight-gainer formula was yucky and I hated it so much I felt like puking everytime I drank it and I won't have any appetite to eat after that which totally defeats the purpose.

I think I'm going to start the same diet again:

- Tuna and half boiled-eggs for breakfast/in between meals consecutively
- Buttered bread for breakfast
- Soyabean milk
- 2 servings of fruit
- More sleep/relax
- Exercise lightly thrice weekly

I'm starting my soyabean milk intake already since last week and trying to eat more fruits. I am slowly incorporating more food into my diet while Aisyah's playing or watching teevee. I am so used to just eating two or three meals a day that trying to eat more is just making me sick. But we'll see how it goes. Just more food (and donuts too! heh), more often. And I better start exercising too. hehe. I've been lazy.

So yesterday was the kanda's birthday. We didn't exactly celebrate it...well, maybe a whisper of 'Happy Birthday...' and some sweet nothings in his ears. heh.


I’m fairly awkward about celebrating even my birthday on most years. Maybe it’s that I am already pleased when my friends and family remember my birthday but am not sure how to respond to a hearty “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” But really, it’s okay. I don’t expect anyone’s world to revolve around me, not even on my birthday.

the thing about marriage

Sunday, June 10, 2007


A good friend tied the knot after 10 years of courtship. I am one of those who believe that weddings can be dull affairs that generally kill a whole weekend. But this is one those weddings that I really enjoyed and felt glad that I attended. It's really a wonderful feeling to be married. :D

A friend once told me that when its time for people to get married, people generally talk about what kind of food to serve the guests and the number of guests at the wedding. But they don't talk about kids and family and whether they honestly discussed about money and finances. I guess there's some truth in this. Of course, these issues arent romantic in the first place but these are the things that can save the hassles in future. Hard times will come. Love alone won't get anyone through. At time, it takes mutual commitment and lots and lots of patience.

enjoy your new journey, mrs yusry. ;)

amazing!

I always think that differences in family, religion and cultural beliefs irregardless of race are all things that make the world wonderfully diverse and beautiful...don't you think so?

too late always

Wednesday, June 06, 2007


I love taking streetshots of people but I've always been self-conscious when taking them. Sometimes my thinking process is too long that when I decided to take it, the opportunity is all gone. shucks. So now I'm practising my streetphotography when I go to the market with my mum-in-law. Everytime I go to Tekka market, there's sure something new to shoot. Love that place.

pushed and squashed

Sunday, June 03, 2007


I managed to visit the PC fair 2 days ago. I thought it wouldn't be too crowded since it's a working day but it was full of people. It wasn't that great but I managed to grab 2gb sandisk ultra II CF cards which was less than what was selling outside. The queues were disorganised and people just pushed through the crowd. I don't understand how people can go to such places with their small kids getting squashed. I was literally 'pushed around'.

gahhh!

What were they thinking?! other than surfing the web and emailing/organizing, there is not much use for the Foleo. Watch movies on a bigger screen? I would rather get a notebook for the price. Heck, I can do all those on my handphone and it cost a fraction of the price. They should come up with a revised Treo with at least a 2mp camera and wifi. That will be a killer.
