Inside the pamphlet; various arts from various artist


Gallery Petronas has been my favorite place to hang out. Firstly because it is easily accesible via train and it is in the middle of city. Secondly, I love looking at arts. I am not trying to figuring it out what and how it is been interpreted like most arts critics do or art lovers do. I just simply love looking at the beautiful and creative creation that the artist has created. Some of it feel very personal and some of it just merely beautiful splash of colours dancing harmony on canvas, waiting to be adored and worship.

artist- Khairul Azmir Shoib "All of a Sudden I Missed Everyone"


This art exhibition is a compilation of best artist in Malaysia and thus every art works are mainly towards culture. As Malaysian, we have strong culture beliefs even though some of it hate to admit it. so, if you are in Kuala Lumpur and you love art or just simply want to kill some time, head to Gallery Petronas. It is free anyway.

I love people watching but I love more watching people in canvas with colors. Less talk more colors.

There is a lot of things that makes me proud to be Sarawakian in Borneo. (Ok I may not be speakingthe native language that fluently anymore due to my family moved in KL when I was younger).

This beautiful layered cake really makes cake making a whole new level. The way it is structured with vibrant colors makes people love to admire it rather than eating it. Surprisingly, it is not as sweet as it looks! Another bonus for anyone who doesn't like sweet.


This is a very famous layered cake whenever we celebrate Aidilfitri or Hari Raya. It
will be in every house in Sarawak, Borneo. This is one of them. I am excited to show you this because it is so pretty!!!




This is how most of layered cake been made. I can't find anything to do cake above but you will get the idea. ^_^

The Devil and Miss Prym by Paulo Coelho

(photo credit: Wikispace)

I dont usually review about books and I pretty much doesn't know how to review books but I will try to give my simple and honest opinion. Thank you.


The Devil and Ms. Prym
Paulo Cuelho

Plot: A community devoured by greed, cowardice and fear. A man persecuted by the ghosts of his past. A young woman searching for happiness, In one eventful week, each of them will face questions of life, death, and power and each pf them will have to choose their own path. Will they choose good or evil" - Back cover plot.


I've always been a fan of Paulo Coelho novels. From the day I read the famous "The Alchemist", I am pretty obsessed with his wisdom and take it to heart. I am not an avid reader who read just about everything. If I found the story line is boring, I will stop reading it all together and perhaps just perhaps will re-read it again when the times come.

It doesn't happen to Mr. Coelho novels, it will keep me reading it until finished and when it is finished, I want to read more.

Same goes to this story, "The devil and Miss Prym". I was puzzled and intrigued of Who is the devil in this story. I want to know what happen next for Miss Prym. Is she going to take the gold and go far away? Are the village will kill Bertha? Mr. Coelho certainly knows how to keep reader under the hot seat and half the way of the story, I do begin to wonder that we need to do a bit of Evil (or in this term, Selfishness) to make us happy in our lives. People usually made decisions not because
for great good for other people but mostly for themselves.

The storyline keeps you guessing and makes you think Evil in every of us. It is always struglling in every decisions we made in our lives.

Though it is included some supernatural and spiritual aspect to it but the main message of this story is we have a choice to do Good and Evil. No matter how much reasoning to put for being Evil, perhaps makes people appreciate life more, Evil is just evil.. there will be no good coming out of it. People will always get hurt in every decisions we made.It is up to us to make it less harmful to others.

Thank you, Paulo Coelho. Thank you for making me read again.




Harry Potter : Deathly Hallows

Thank you J.K Rowling for this adventure of my life time. Harry Potter gives me such pleasure more than chocolate.


( photo credit: Thank you so much. )


I admitted that I don't read the whole series, only Deathly Hallows because I got it cheap for 2€ at Sokos but I am truly amazed by your amazing imaginations. For the people who bring this piece of magic to silver screens, thank you.


It has been truly a magical ride all through this years and I have always looking forward and waited with enthusiastic every year..

I do not have any special preference on which Harry Potter's movie I like the best, I love them all equally. The end was spectacular. I've read it before the movie is out and I can say,the movie was done almost accurately and beautifully. Just like in my imaginations when I read it. Of course, there are some bits and pieces couldn't fit into the movie because that would make the movie
length up to 4 or 5 hours? Even so, I will be sitting on my bottom and watch it diligently as I put popcorn on my mouth.

For Harry Potter fans, I think we both know that this is a tragic day for us all..no more boy with lightning scars to look forward to... no more charming prank twin brothers... no more clueless Ron and uptight Hermione ...

There is only 2 things left for me to do now,

1. visit Harry Potter park at Orlando, USA

2. spend the night at Castle Hotel.

I will keep this magic within me for the rest of my life and perhaps pass it down to my future children.

Thank you again.




Captain America: The First Avengers

(photo credit: poster)

For those girl who doesn't like guys wearing tight shirts and beating the crap out of people while looking good, you are a lesbians.
For those man who does like guys wearing tight shirts and running around shoeless and get the villain, you are..who you are.

The Avengers consist of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and other superheroes and surreal beauty put together in a team and get the villains that always want to rule the world...like they don't have any thing else to do...

I've read somewhere there will be The Avengers movie consist of these superheroes. Yes, meaning that Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and more stars will be in the same movie showing off their godly abs.. even Scarlett Johansson will be playing Black Widow. I can't wait!

For girls who love the Captain America, we both know that we only like the scene where he "transform" inside this cube. From frail man to super abs man..which in real life, he would eat 6 times a day, working out like crazy, lifting weights until he feel constipated , doing cardio , stretching, jumping, martials arts and whole lots of sweatness...but of course, it is a comic book and to make things short, a serum that makes him look like Adonis with God like body.

I bet some guys are wondering if they could get their hands on that serum.. eh? eh?
I guess nothing comes in cheap or lucky like Captain America...

ok, enough with superficial features, lets move on to the movie itself.
I don't want to elaborate what is the plot of the story because I don't read Captain America comic books and I don't know
how it should go.
Judging from the movie, it is purely story about how Captain America become Captain America.
There's nothing more to it. It is neither great or bad. It is just feel like an introductory movie.
"LOOK, I HAVE BIG CHEST NOW, GREW COUPLE INCHES TALLER AND SAVING THE WORLD WITH STYLE, THIS IS HOW IT ALL BEGIN" kind of movie.

( photo credit: Captain "yeah, keep staring, bitch. I have bigger tits than you now" )


all movie have romantic side to it and I like how comic books really put an excitement in romance department such as Spider man kissing Mary Jane upside down and Captain America kissing a girl in a speeding car before going to hop onto a villain jetplane.

Overall, it is an eye candy movie.
Love it or hate it, it doesn't exist. Indifferent, I would say.
