useless and stupid me

Am feeling so useless and stupid today....which is so unacceptable since I have a lot of menial tasks on my plate to deal with...well, maybe it's just the fact that we're going to have a long weekend back home...just plain lazy to work....

Was browsing through some interesting mails in my mail box...and look what I found!!!
my comments are in red... ^__^



BEST POEM EVER (the writer's claim, not what I think of it)




A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE...

enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own,
even if she never wants to or needs to... (I am renting a place because I NEED to)



A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

something perfect to wear if the employer,
or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour... (I don't think I need to dress to PERFECTION to meet my employer, but maybe if need to, I'll dress for SUCCESS, if I'm on a date with the man of my dreams, I'll try to be myself as much as possible but keeping in mind to give the best first impression....after all, it might be the ONLY chance for me)


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ..

a youth she's content to leave behind.... (I haven't exactly left my youth yet (youth is below 30, right?)...but if I've left it now, I think I'm already content with what I've done...had a lot of enjoyful/sorrowful/eventful/meaningful moments that kind of mould me into what I am now)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to
retelling it in her old age.... (hehehehhee....my past is surely JUICY....nyummm!)



A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ..

a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra... (I have all of them + spanners + pipe wrench + high pressure water pump + black lace panty to match the bra )


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

one friend who always makes her laugh... and one who lets her cry... (proud to say that I have one each of those friends...but then those girls also never fail to irritate me...ha ha)



A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ....

a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family... (errr...my bed?)



A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

eight matching plates (ada), wine glasses with stems (wine is HARAM),
and a recipe for a meal (ada),
[color=darkblue]that will make her guests feel honored...




A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

a feeling of control over her destiny...
(no, I don't...trying not to be flustered by that lack of feeling)



EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

how to fall in love without losing herself.. (errr...I thought, losing oneself is part of the process?)



EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

how to quit a job,
break up with a lover,
and confront a friend without;
ruining the friendship... (I need a lesson on all three)


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

when to try harder... and WHEN TO WALK AWAY... (I hope Allah will always lead my heart to make the best decisions)

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

that she can't change the length of her calves, (40 inch)
the width of her hips, (50 inch) or the nature of her parents.. (each 5 ft xx inch and care about me a lot!)


EV ERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

that her childhood may not have been perfect...but its over... (ermmm...should I say, growing up is optional...and sometimes I think I'm still child at heart?)


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

what she would and wouldn't do for love or more... (I think I know)


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

how to live alone... even if she doesn't like it... (I don't like it but have to, that's why I have all the screwdrivers and spanners)


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW..

whom she can trust,
whom she can't,
and why she shouldn't take it personally... (most of the times my instincts help)



EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

where to go...
be it to her best friend's kitchen table...
or a charming inn in the woods...
when her soul needs soothing... (yeah...been there done that)


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

what she can and can't accomplish in a day...
a month...and a year... (I'm a realistic idealist in this matter)

hi bloggie....looking at how busy I am with my own life nowadays....I don't even have time to write what I think of in my friendster blog....most of it are stored in my phone (either recorded or written --> and disappear when my memory card got corrupted) or on whatever bits of paper I found at that particular moment - which usually will end up in the trash can. It's a waste since I might have written some high quality literary pieces and then throw it away (we're talking high self confidence here...he he )....

anyway, enough of my rambling....actually what I want to do is to keep my fotopages as some sort of travelogue for places that I've been to. So, next time when people ask me, "mana gambar? uploadlah kat friendster..", I will just direct them to this page....easy measy....

so here are the first few of my Korea snippets...These pictures were taken by Ji Heun, a really nice Korean girl we meet during the trip. I will update with more pictures once I have the time. These pictures are from our trip to Gyeong Ju, the historical city of Korea.

(my next entry I will write more on the places I go)

A weekend in Paris

My weekend in Paris was too short….so many things to see, so little time…

Yasmina met me at Gare du Nord, in front of my train…it's a good 3.5 hrs journey…we made our way to Champs de Mars, where the Eiffel Tower is… we queued for more than 1 hour to get the tickets to go up… we didn't buy the entrance to the top though, it's too expensive for nothing, and as the air is thinner and wind is stronger the higher you got, I was concerned about Yas who's having a cold…

We bought the tickets to get a lift to first floor and made our way by stairs to the second floor…there are about 350 steps from first to second floor….and it's a great spot to view the beautiful Paris, city of love….I can't get enough pictures of the tower, I took a lot of them and had trouble to decide which ones I want to put in my fotopage…

A little bit of history of Eiffel Tower…it was built in 1889 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of France becoming a republic…. From Yas' information, I think it's also a symbol of humanity and equality and liberty…there's also a statue of liberty in Paris which was a gift from the American community in France…it's a smaller version of the statue of liberty in New York…

I went to Champs Elysees and then to Arc de Triomphe…went up a long and winding staircase (had to stop few times to catch my breath)….and watched the Paris sunset from above….

after that we went window shopping in Champs Elysees...Yas bought few winter stuffs and I bought a pair of jeans...Paris souvenirs are very expensive here, so we went to the Notre Dame area to get some souvenirs..the atmosphere is lively...there's a brass band playing and I would love to hang around longer (I didn't take any picture with gargoyles, thinking I'll have time the next day)....but we have to make our move since the train journey to Yas's house is about an hour....

the next day, we woke up early and made our way to Musee de Louvre, to see the most famous woman in the world, Monalisa... good thing we arrived early....because when we went out, the queue at the ticket counter is very long...

final event before I left for Den Haag is the lunch on a boat cruise, passing some major attractions of Paris along the River Seine...it was Yas's belated birthday present for me... I get to taste the oh-so-much-talked-about French cuisine (no snails-eating, however)....with a good view along the cruise

next to our table is a couple in their mid forties....they are very romantic...holding hands along the way and dancing to the romantic French songs sang by the live band....we thought they are celebrating their 20th anniversary or something like that....but actually they were celebrating the 1st anniversary when they first met....daym, French men are romantic creatures...

Yas told me to look at it this way...it's never too late to find love and when you finally found it, it will be worth the wait... in God we trust....so, to all those makciks asking me when is my turn to get married (they always ask, especially in weddings)...I will just tell them to bugger off or better yet, if I ran into them during a funeral...maybe I can ask them back, when is your turn??

ha ha ha......it's Farah's idea...I don't think I can say that to an old lady....

anyway, whoever I ended up with, he will be worth the wait (but hopefully not that long ).

snippets of me in London and during the field trip to Belgium...

Belgium is divided into two parts - the Dutch speaking part and the French speaking part... Namur is in the French speaking part of Belgian...so, by default, they almost don't speak any English... and my French is only limited to Bonjour, merci beaucoup, excuse moi, oui and few other words...courtesy of Yayee and Sutie...

didn't take any pictures in amsterdam though...still have a lot of picture from last year...it was summer and a hell lot better for piccies....
