Y was so nice that he chauffeured me around today in his super beautilicious Ferrari 360 Spider. I always wanted to know how it feels to ride in a fast car like a Ferrari and today my dream came true. It was indeed a powerful car with loud engine roars and the speed control of the car was excellent. However, it's not for the weak-hearted.

I will never accept a marriage proposal for the sake of the rock eventhough it's big enough for me to reject my sanity because in the end, it's the man you're living with for the rest of your life and not the rock. So isn't that a big sacrifice to pay for a piece of useless (but expensive) rock on your finger?!! That's not happiness.

I have almost forgotten that I did donate to Shelter, a voluntary welfare organization for children and teenagers who have been abandoned, neglected, orphaned or abused until they sent me this wonderful letter days ago. Then I remembered that I have donated RM100 through Razim's KL Marathon Charity run. I can't run 42km either but I can certainly part with RM100.
This Shelter is so wonderful because not only they send me an official thank you letter, they also sent a handmade card! It's really very kind and thoughtful of them. The best of all - it's income tax relief too! So isn't it nice to donate money yet be appreciated and income tax deductible too?!! All in one!

After almost being missing in action for the whole weekend until Monday, I felt so refreshed and energized for the week ahead. The short break was so good, it's almost like spending a weekend in the skies. And yesterday's dinner calling from Mr.L was the seal of the greatest weekend of all times!
And the Beluga caviar is best paired with a Krug Champagne!
Krug served in a unique Champagne glass.
Perhaps the greatest name in the history of champagne that lives for many years in a bottle is none other than KRUG. And to drink a truly great king of champagnes, Big E brought some wonderful limited edition glasses that she has been keeping for god-knows-how-many-years! On the palate, it has a very creamy bouquet, fine bubblies, a little toasty and has a long and lingering crisp finish. The Krug Grande Cuvee is a real mosaic of flavours with a blend of 40 to 50 wines, 20 to 25 crus and 6 to 10 different years. It's easily above RM600 a bottle. The Dom Perignon pales in comparison.
Oh, the food is a little different from what we have been having most of the time in Imbi Palace. This time, Mr.L decides to do without the sharksfin & abalone (due to obvious reasons) and we have a number of light dishes. We started off with some fresh oysters, a bowl of chicken and sharks bones soup which is so flavourful and satisfying. Then we have the boiled beef (chinese style as opposed to the ones I had at La Suisse), steamed fish and also the Kobe beef which is pan seared to medium rare. To finish things off, we all had a bowl of birds nest as dessert.
Mr.L being a man of his words did not give me my 20 bottles of Mouton but rather something even much better to make up that number. He offered us two bottles of the very sought after Burgundy which both of them is in my Wine Dream list and I'm so estatic that I can finally proclaim that I had drank it!
And yesterday night, we had 2 bottles of Burgundy by DRC. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, often abbreviated to DRC, is an estate in Burgundy, France. It is widely considered among the world's greatest wine producers, and DRC bottles are among the world's most expensive.
The expensiveness of food and drinks did not just stop there. The last ultimate digestive for everything good has to be Mr.L's private collection of this 1958 Glenfarclas single malt whisky!
I don't know exactly how much dinner costs but one thing for sure - I cannot afford this! This is really better that what I've bargained for so thanks Mr.L for all of these! When can we start betting again?
Doesn't the "e" fits into this post very well? Eiling, expensive, and eighth heaven.

Finally, I'm fine... The temperature checks for these few days have been normal and my cold is gone. I've suffered for a week without dinners and alcohol but I was glad at the same time because I've lost some weight due to eating less!
So it's Friday again and I'm going to talk about
Let's just start with, how do you kiss a guy for the very first time. I'm not talking about your first kiss but the first kiss to a new guy everytime(it can be your fourth or fifth). How do you create the right moment to kiss a guy? Well, you're damn bloody lucky if you have always been kissed first by the opposite sex. So if you always have been the receiver, have you ever wondered how the other partner initiated the kiss? This is kinda intriguing because I've always thought that it's better for a guy to initiate things and as girls, the
Well, I can tell you it's WRONG. We should not sit and wait but we should initiate the first move if we are interested. This is the 21st century my dear fellow girlfriends and to make things right, we will show the guys what we want and when we want it. We do not sit at home and wait for you to come and smooch us because if we like you, we'll walk straight to you and blow you away with a deep passionate kiss you'll never forget. Pheww....
So, how to create that moment? When do we know when to plant that kiss? Surely I wouldn't want to risk missing his face when I'm about to kiss him. That would sent me into the embarrassment hell. If you're going to buy a 60-page book telling you how and when to kiss, you might as well forgo the chances of kissing a guy first. The right moment to do exactly just that is when you're confident with yourself and that you think that's the right moment. Follow your heart and your instincts. Women always have a better sixth sense, don't we?
I've spent too much time waiting for a guy to come and swept me off my feet and so I thought, why don't I sweep the guy I like off his feet? It just happened that I'm lucky for every guy that I wanted to kiss, they will kiss me back. It'll be kinda embarrassing right if you kissed an unwilling guy huh? I can totally understand that. So to avoid embarrassment 101, I have devised a plan. Don't kiss the guy you like on a first date. Try out this simple step:
1. On the first date, shakes his hand when you meet him. If everything is good, and you feel attracted to him at the end of the date, give him a hug and a light peck on both cheeks and call it a night. This is called testing the waters.
2. If you called him for a second date and he agrees, give him the same peck when you meet him and when you leave. Nothing more than just a peck.
3. And so, if the third date materialized, you can find the right moment to plant your passionate kiss at the end of the date.
It might reduce the feeling of awkwardness and embarrassment if it does fail. For me, if he's the right target, I might even do it on the second date! I have no qualms walking up to a guy and plant kisses on his cheeks but if I were to do a passionate kiss, I better like that guy or no way I'm going to do it. That's call principles. Starting with a hug is always the easiest. Then with your hands, rub his back, move you head back and reach for his lips! There, and you're done! Easy right? So if he kisses back, congratulations and you may continue kissing.
So far, I've successfully pull it off and it works if you put a little effort in getting to know the other partner before you plan to blow him away (literally of course)! If your partner is a shy person, you might have to work harder. But seriously, it feels good when the person you kiss kisses you back. Like I said, it's good to try but don't misuse them. A kiss is not just a kiss.
Have a great weekend peeps. I'm going on a short trip where the 3S (Sea, Sun &

Anyways, let me introduce you to one of the prettiest Geoscientists around whom happens to be my dear friend Jasmin whom I've known her since primary school in MGS Ipoh. She's working with Petronas now at Tronoh and I'm glad we are able to meet up last weekend.
Btw, I'm not trying to pimp her as she is already attached to a handsome doctor! Huhuhu...

This place used to be a shack under the big tree with falling leaves and thus the name "Tai Shu Geok". Now it has turned into a mini coffee shop with a few different food selection. But of course the only reason I'm there is for it's famous fried "liu" which is what they called "yong tau fu" in KL.

Jealousy aka Green-eyed monster lives in all of us. It's is something that we have to dealt with everyday especially if you're in a relationship. Seldom I find a couple whom is in a relationship has never felt jealous for one moment over something. It could be that hot receptionist or the colleague at his work place or it could be his ex-gf whom is calling him or it could even be a girl he checked out at a club.
Jealousy should not be confused with envy. While the latter can be a positive feeling, jealousy is actually destructive. It's a feeling of fear, insecurity and the anxiety over an anticipated loss of something. So, it could be that you're afraid of loosing your other half to someone else which the basis of the feeling is unfounded! But if you're envy, it's a different story. When you're envious over a person or a material possession, you might work towards the target and hope to be better but not when you're jealous.
Let's face it, jealousy destroys relationship because the very foundation of a relationship is trust. When you are jealous or imagining that your partner is seeing someone else, you felt that he/she has breached that trust and without getting an explanation from the "accused", you kept it to yourself and one day you erupted and you find that the relationship will never be the same again. Many people denied their jealousy by hoping that it will evaporate or disappear but you know it will not, unless you get your answer.
Therefore, it's very important to communicate. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. If you don't want your partner to be jealous, keep an open communication. Talk to your ex/colleague/whoever in front of he/she if it's not a top secret or a national security threat. I know some gfs or bfs actually do check on their partner's mobile or history calls and texts. It's a way of declaring that you are "innocent" when proven guilty or finding out before he/she decides to kiss and tell. But honestly to me, it's a bad idea.
First of all, his/her mobile is her private possession. To respect oneself is to respect the other person as well as their personal belongings. I don't scoop into anyone's mobile and I don't plan to do so unless I'm threatened (as in if I don't check, I'll die kinda feeling). But of course I wish that the day would not befall on me because I want the other person to respect my privacy as well. They say, a couple should not hide anything from each other. I say, it's bollocks. Whoever teach you that is definitely hiding a lot of things. Everyone is entitled to their own secrets and the chinese says "the less you know, the better it is".
And thus it's easy to control jealousy in a monogamy relationship than in a polyamory (which I have written earlier) relationship because too many parties are involved and no one wants to get hurt. If you can't handle jealousy well in a relationship with one person, don't even think of two or the results could be quite severe. Some severe cases might be loosing a prized-possession like your manhood and for ladies, maybe your face (physically).
My advice is, detect that green-eyed monster early whether be it yourself or your partner. You can't kill it or take away insecurities straight away like a panadol acti-fast but you can take proactive measures to control it. The key word - communication. Hope it helps if you happened to be living with one or you're one.

I realised it's been quite a number of years since I last went up to Genting in a cable car @ Genting Skyway. If I could still remember, the price of a ticket one way is RM5 and if you're a silver/gold Genting Worldcard member, it's free!
When I was there two weeks ago, the weather was kind. It was kinda foggy up the hill and it's really cooling, ok maybe cold. Going up in a cable car was a breeze. I think it's much better than driving up but then again, if you could only trust your little reliable car and own driving skills in getting yourself uphill safely, by all means drive!
After that, we just end our trip up to Genting with a hearty lunch at "Good Friends". I've been to that restaurant for years since I'm in primary school if I could remember and that restaurant is still as good. They serve very good pumpkin tofu and pork tripe soup.

Joseph Drouhin Meursault 2006. The wines of Meursault are famous in the entire world that reveres their gilded color, the excessive flavoring of honey, butter of hazelnut and sometimes chamomile. This is my first time having a white burgundy and I do have to agree that it's good. The colour is in luminous gold, intense and it makes a great aperitif.
The best dish of the night was this plate of boiled beef served with potatoes and carrots. It was boiled to perfection and every drop of the beef stock was all licked up. Many would have thought that boiled beef would be tasteless or bland but no, it was very flavorful and the beef is so tender. Not to mention it's very healthy to eat this you know?!! This is not on the menu and in fact many of the dishes we ate was not on the menu too. You need to let Mike know 2 days in advance if you want to eat this boiled beef.
For the reds, we had a bottle of Chateau Lascombes 2002 from Margaux and it has a very fruit-driven nose and has nice tannins. Then, we had the Le Bailly de Camensac 2005 from Haut-Medoc followed by Aromes de Pavie 2005 from Saint-Emillion.
