There Goes My Only....


I heard a "plak" sound when my best buddy, Tam, leant across the table to get something.... and the next thing I knew, it was my favorite pair of specs. I have forgotten I left my specs on the table and it was covered by a cardboard. Tam also didn't realize it was there and her arm crushed my poor specs till the right "arm" came out.... sob...sobbbbbbb...

I can see my RM400 flying away..... (fly, money, fly.. up up to the sky.... )

my poor specs...
the other day Andy broke his..
today mine broke..
i guess it is time to get a new pair for my birthday..

so... any donations here? no?
sponsors.... no?
charity? no?
*dig own pocket* YES, no choice!


  1. Hey Reanaclaire, quick...check out that Chinese book of dream numbers for broken glasses. Two in one week?
    So add a 2 infront or behind....never can tell. Ha ha.
    No need to buy designer ones, just ones that looks good on you okay....

    Have a BIL wear a designer frame, he was here, lost the joint screw, I told him to chuck it away, buy new one.
    I almost choked on my coffee when he said it was a Prada, cost US $600!! Holy Smoke! And I thought it was a Pasar Malam one, ha ha.

    You know, why not same time change personality....try out those gold rim ones? Or slightly half tint ones? Or...try those ladies RayBan Aviators? I bet looks real nice on you....very stylish.
    Have fun....and keep well, Lee.

  2. U.Lee, how i wish it was that simple.. buy and strike.. only in movies it happens... hahaha...

  21. having a spec is really troublesome huh..
    i am trying very hard to protect my eyes now coz dont know why sometimes the words are blur.. cannot see clearly now..

  22. hey lucky u still can see things without spec...if me, once without spec, apa pun tak nampak. No need to drive back home dy from office....hehehehe

  23. marly: yes, $8 only but i m looking for a frameless one, got to check that out..

  25. Hmm, broken 2 spectacles must be something least it is not mirror. I understand English think it is bad omen for someone to break a mirror.

    Well, I guess it is time to change into a more trendy type. :p You buy Andy his for xmas present and vice versa loh...

  26. j2kfm: i will try with the UHU elephant glue first.. but i think chances are slim...

  28. ohh.. reminds me of my younger days..
    i used to break my specs.. felt so baddd.. =P

  29. Wah, Claire. I remember U bought from Menglembu, and now broke it! I never wear glasses until only recently...reading glasses. Dekat dekat the words all blur blur! And now I know your feelings because I broke one too.Luckily it was only RM20, pasar malam style albeit Thailand style, haha. Quick quick buy 4D and like U Lee says, get an expensive one. I bet you will take extra care of it then! Have a nice day. CY

  30. alamak... now breaking glasses is bad... somehow i nver roke my before... but touch wood, touch wood.. i don't want to jinx myself :/

  31. ah ngao: that is a good idea... now in fashion? but i want something light la..

    CY: mine is not only loe far, kan see also .. so mar farn, right?

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
