is age just a number ?

It feels like ages since I last updated.
I have been busy growing old. Hehe.

So, I turned 26 two days ago.
As I am aging (gracefully, hehe), I no longer can pull an all-nighter, be it to finish my work or just to stay up and watch my favourite DVDs.
These days, my bedtime is almost always before midnight.

So as the morning of my birthday arrived, I was already zonked out as usual.
My eyes could barely open when I felt someone shaking my body.
I thought I was dreaming.
It was Mr Sunshine, of course.
I could hear Happy Birthday by The Beatles playing, which further convinced me I that I was in a dream.
But the shaking did not stop.
I tried my best to open my eyes, and I saw a cake right next to me !
Almost three quarter of the candles had already melted. It took that long to wake me up. :p

So yes, another sweet surprise by Mr Sunshine, which I was not expecting at all.
I was already happy with my Elliptical bike. :))

Sleepy yet happy me cutting my cake. πŸ™‚
 My blueberry cheese birthday cake ! β™₯

He even downloaded loads of birthday songs to play at that hour. πŸ™‚

I could not have asked for any other way to kick off my birthday ! :))
Thank you Mr Sunshine ku !

Mr Sunshine and I took a couple of days off last week to head up to Genting Highlands !
The plan from Day One was to go to Cameron Highlands but after checking out the rates and considering that will be a 8-9 hour drive from here, we moved to Plan B. πŸ™‚
Why Genting and not any other places ?
Because I was craving the cool hill breeze. πŸ™‚

We had super loads of fun up there !

Showed off our muscles.

Trying out our luck. Did not have much of that though.

Practiced our shooting skills.

Mr Sunshine got addicted to the basketball game. I don’t blame him. He was pretty good at it.

I was terrible at almost everything, except for the kids’ shooting machine and kids’ cycling machine. No kidding, I was so good I actually wanted to go on playing for hours, but then I got a bit embarrassed. Haha.

We collected a huge bundle of tickets which we used to redeem a picture frame, a cute coin box, a Genting magnet (haha) and a whistle. Yes, a whistle because we were left with a balance 20 points and that was the only item which costs 20 points. :p

We had a blast at the outdoor park too.

Don’t have pictures of us on the rides lah kan.
I have always loved rollercoasters and being able to get on the Corkscrew and Flying Coaster again was so exhilarating !!
There was also the Space Shot. Getting on it reminded me why I told myself I would never be on it ever again back in the year 2000. I hate it when I can’t scream properly, which is exactly what happened. I opened my mouth and nothing came out except funny sounds because I was trying so hard to place my butt back on the seat at the same time !
Was that a bit too hard to comprehend ? :p

I went on the Sungai Rejang Flume Ride for the first time. I was bowing down so that I would not get so soaked but I ended up being thrown towards the front of the ride. I knocked my head pretty hard. It hurt for the rest of the day. πŸ™

Entered SnowWorld for the first time too.
Maybe we weren’t properly covered up but we were out of there before wayyy before our session ended. My jaw was frozen. And Mr Sunshine was already sneezing.
Macam mana nak migrate ni, sayang ??

Of course all that energy needed fuel.
We stuffed ourselves to the max !

Steamboat buffet at HotPot. The tomyam soup was a bit too oily for my liking. I don’t think I’d be going back there again.

We had Marrybrown. No photos of the food there because it was lousy. We still found ways to entertain ourselves. :))

Baskin Robbins was heaven. I rarely get to eat my favourite Pralines and Cream these days. πŸ™
And Wednesday was Pink day ! Anyone in pink gets two scoops of ice cream for the price of one ! I felt so lucky !

It’s good that I brought my tripod along, so that we could take shots like these.

On our way back home we stopped in Kuantan to catch Kick Ass, which was pretty funny. Though, I think it should have been called Hit Girl because she was awesome. Hehe.

After that we did not go straight back home, out of the blue we decided to spend a night in Cherating ! We were fortunate enough to get a room at Suria Cherating Beach Resort at a very reasonable rate.
And again, we put the tripod to full use before checking out. πŸ™‚

Hai Peng Kopitiam in Kemaman was our last stop. πŸ™‚
I used to go there every time the family and I made trips to Cherating, so it brought back good old memories of when Mummy was still around.
I love their kaya toast buns !

That pretty much sums up the whole (happy) trip. :))
There are many. many more photos but I’m just too lazy to torture all of you today. πŸ™‚

Before I end, I would like to thank everyone who took their time to call and send me birthday comments, messages and tweets !
You guys are great ! Thank you for making me feel so loved ! ;D
Smooches from me. πŸ™‚

an early birthday surprise !

I am beaming from ear to ear while I am typing this.

Last night, Mr Sunshine told me he wanted to play a game with me before he leaves for Port Dickson today.
I seriously thought he was kidding, so I smiled and nodded.

Then he handed me a small blue envelope.
In it was a piece of paper and the letter A.

Yes, the letter A.
The piece of paper read “American Idol@8.00 pm Wednesday STARWORLD.”

It took me a minute to realize that it was a clue to something and that I was on a treasure hunt !
Mr Sunshine had hid 6 other clues and I had to look for them !

I suck at these kinda things. Seriously.
And last night proved me right.

Did you get the hint to where the next clue is ?
I was looking under the Astro decoder and remote. -____-

The second clue was actually behind the telly !

Got it ?
For some odd reason I thought the next hint was at the balcony. -____-

The answer was in bed !
You know when you go to bed you can dream about anything and everything ? πŸ™‚

Next !

Ok so this was obviously easy.
The next clue was stuck behind the sofa. πŸ™‚

When I read this, I immediately ran to the kitchen because the window there was the only one we did not hang curtains on.
*slaps head*

Did any of you guess computer ?
Then you’re absolutely right !
Tingkap = Windows (XP, 7, Vista). πŸ™‚

I rummaged through all the shoe boxes we had.
I was about to give up when I decided to look in my Power (from BATA) running shoes.
And there it was !

Ok, this was tough.
I watched Doraemon when I was (much) younger but I do not remember that much.
Especially not about a time machine.
I was sweating and itching for running all around not knowing whether I was on the right track.
I pouted hoping Mr Sunshine would give me a heads up on where to look but he kept giving me the ‘lips-zipped’ sign. -___-

I resorted to googling up “mesin cahaya masa Doraemon” and I got my answer !

Click to enlarge please.

Thank you Wikipedia Bahasa Melayu.

I started looking in all the drawers in the house.
Then, I found this in our closet drawer.


Next I had to rearrange the alphabets that came with the clues, to get to my BIRTHDAY PRESENT !!!!

Yes yes, my birthday is still a fortnight away but Mr Sunshine wrote in the card that he had to carry this out wayyy early due to unexpected turn of events.

Managed to solve the puzzle ?


Both Mr Sunshine and I went down to his car.
I did not want to go alone, biasa lah, mengada. πŸ™‚

A nicely wrapped box was placed on the car’s dashboard.
Mr Sunshine drove me around Kuala Berang while I excitingly opened the gift.

Again, in it was a piece of paper, this time it was a bigger piece.
In my head I was going, “Oh no, I thought I’m done with running around !”
But it was actually a receipt.

FOR AN ELLIPTICAL BIKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The people from the store called Mr Sunshine yesterday afternoon telling him that they will be sending the machine today so that’s why he had to bring forward the surprise.

I was in tears lah as usual.

I am getting something from my wishlist !
(Not the same brand but it’s still the same thing !)

I am so happy !!
I am so touched !!
I am so so so in love !!

And yes, it arrived at my doorstep about half an hour ago. πŸ˜€
It’s a two in one elliptical bike, with a body fat, BMR, BMI and calories burned calculator.

I can get a workout while watching my favourite TV shows !
Now there’s absolutely no excuse for me not to exercise ! πŸ˜€



P.S: Mr Sunshine is already on his way to Port Dickson. He also left me with Season 7 of One Tree Hill to keep me company while he’s away. ;D

you make me happy.

Happiness comes in many forms.
In the company of good friends,
in the feeling you get when you make someone else’s dreams come true,or in a promise of hope renewed.
It’s ok to let yourself be happy,
because you never know how great that happiness might be.
Sometimes pain becomes such a huge part of your life,
that you expect it to always be there,
because you can’t remember a time in your life when it wasn’t.
But then one day you feel something else.
Something that feels wrong only because it’s so unfamiliar,
and in that moment you realize you’re happy.
(Lucas Scott)
