Words Don't Come Easy To Me

Sitting here staring at the screen...

These days... my mind... the brain.. my grey cells... is like "blank!"

I looked through folders after folders... screening through photos to bring some ideas... but.. no avail...

The song.. "Words... don't come easy to me.... how can I find a way... to make you see... "

Funny it is tonight... words really don't come easily these days....

Should I blame it on my work pressure? Not enough rest? From 6am till 12midnite daily... my mind is working non stop... but then if it does not work or think, I would be in Happy Hospital, Tg. Rambutan... right?

I guess it is one of those days again... blame it on PMS....

(quote from Desperate Housewives)


  1. take care.. hope your words be back soon..

  2. claire, it is menopause ! Mood changes , taste changes , then health changes.I can feel i grow old overnight. Oh it's frightening.

  3. cyn: perhaps.. or it will be loose like this..

    may: hey there!! now i know why.. i think it is all bec of you.. cos i miss u so veli muchi!! :0

  4. At this stage, having mood swings is absolutely normal ... just take it easy. I always remind my students to be more understanding when their mothers are experiencing similar changes. Think positive and everything will be alright.

  6. Same here.. words don't come easy. I think I was affected with a very personal problem that I only stare at the computer and read and read blogs even if I have to write a blog. It will pass, I assure you :)

    Namali yung link kaya dinilete ko hehe

    Take care and God bless!

    Walk Through My Notebook

  7. Ah, I know the feeling well...have been through all that many times! I have experienced the "what did I come into this room for" blankness, "oh gosh, who am I calling" as the phone is ringing, etc.,etc. Hope all is well with you!

  8. pam: actually i m not sad or what.. it is just that i cannot administer what i want to write about.. blank!

    lisa: sometimes i have lots to write.. sometimes i have to think deeply.. and sometimes, i do not want to think at all.. :)

    cheryl: oh, those are very familiar.,, hahhaa..

  9. Sometime I'm like you, I think the only solution is switch off the PC and have an early night.
    Have a good rest Claire :)

  10. Go get a good rest. Maybe tmw u'll experience blog diarrhea. hehehe

  11. I've had weeks like that. One things I have learned is when the inspiration strikes, I write as much as I can and stack the posts up as drafts so I don't get stuck. I only learned this the hard way though! I found you through VoiceBoks and am now a follower!

  12. I'm sure all bloggers have this experience once in a while. On such days, either you take a break off blogging, or simply post a YouTube song or even just a picture! Haha!

  13. hmmm, i don't think so it's gonna do with menopause lah, sometimes we just get mind-block, it happens to me sometimes also having totally no idea what to blog about..

  14. LOL.. last statement.. ^_^.. but.. may be?? nvr knw.. :D

  15. Maybe you need a short blog break to re-energize yourself? Then maybe things will start coming to you really fast? Just a few days to see what happens. Maybe your brain is overloaded.

  16. I'll give you a tip, Claire. Drink Lipton tea and get inspiration. No kidding wan. it contains Hirameki to help the brain to relax and be more active. I drink that... very often. LOL!

  17. i hope that you'll feel better again soon ;)

  18. You need a break - go to someplace where you can do nothing,just laze around...enjoy the good food...and the good company...and you know where that is! Hehehehehe!!!

  19. ann: i did that last night! :p

    slavemom: i like the word.. blog lai si.. hahaha..

  21. Poor thing! Dun worry sis, I come back and bring you out makan makan , ok ?

  22. Maybe you are too tired? :D Have more rest and everything will be ok again.

  23. claire, dont ikut cleff..drink tea at night later malam kenot zz cham lo.

  24. Are you pointing fingers at MEN to give all the MENopause and MENstrual problem? hahaha. Sorry MEN said you NO PAUSE woh...~;).

  25. May be you can take 5 to 10 minutes to do some meditation. Very simple, you just tell yourself softly that you love yourself, you are sorry to yourself, you forgive yourself, and you thank yourself. This is the self healing theraphy. It works on me.

  26. why want to put stress on yourself? if u got nothing to write, just skip it.

    Another thing...why not save money n buy ipad? i m sure ipad can cure ur urge to blog, n keep ur mind really alert!!!!! REAL ONE!!!

  27. so u watch desperate housewives..!!??

  30. Oooops...tired mind! I think you are just overworked. You are still young. I think you need a good holiday somewhere...and good food, too! :D Please take care. Sleep early and I'm sure we are going to hear lots of interesting stuff from you :D

  33. Up and down,, may be you are at the down mode now,, let it linger for a while,then it will soon be replaced with all the UPs ya..........

    PMS,,,, no prob... take more iron, magnesium, and vit c,,

    take care now ya

  34. LOL... Ha ha ha ha! I love that word Menopause On Pause!! You seem to be creative in words and should work as copywriter for advertising agencies. The salary is often highest!!

    On serious note, you might need to visit a spa OFTEN for a good massage to relax and rejuvenate! Also, do yoga!!

  35. Im like you sometimes, ha ha ha. No words will flow our from my mind.

    So, am I having early menopause? I reckon not?! ;)

    Take some ginko biloba, I heard it helps.

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…
