week recap:my 1st week of holidays...

I am still on with my plans to Bangkok...flying on Christmas day instead...

My first week of holidays passed by like a I am left with a few days of freedom because me M0m decided to help me apply for work at her company (yes, she did all the paperwork and enquiries, obviously, because it is not a mutual agreement between me and her regarding me working in this bloody short holidays of just ONE month).

I enjoyed hibernating at home. All the excitement of last week left me very much exhausted and looking forward to just some R&R at home. Still trying to finish reading "Shopaholic", a book that I have been reading on-off since last sem break but most of the time I fall into my temptation of...Korean dramas.

Let me get this straight...once upon a time, I was a K-drama fan ever since I watched "Autumn in My Heart" and fell in love with Song Seung-hun and Won Bin but as time passes, I soon realized that all K-dramas follow the same run-of-the-mill storyline and I got bored of it (just like I get bored with everything else) so I digress from that phase ever since, until just recently.

I found out that some kind soul uploaded all the episodes of this drama onto and I have been hooked on it. This drama I am speaking about is...


I watched this few years back but I love it so much (then and now) that I cannot help but watch it all over again. I love that the protagonist, Kim Sam-soon is such an unconventional character - she is plump, rough, tomboy-ish, and vulgar, unlike the usual female characters which are weakly and needy. Of course, the male protagonist, Jin-hyeon, fit every woman's Prince Charming (well, mine at least). Okay, so that character is not unconventional but he definitely serves up some amazing eye candy.

I can go on and on about my fave K-drama of all time, but let's keep it for another post...

A book that I am dying to read but I am also afflicted with my love for Sam-soon...

Okay, that was totally random...

As some may know, I had plans this holidays to fly to Bangkok for 5 days with Waiyin, LiLing and Pearl. Some (except those who do not read newspaper or watch news) may also know that the airport in Bangkok have been closed due to anti-government protesters.

On 26/11/08, a day before our flight, all of us (except Pearl) went to the AirAsia ticketing counter at KL Sentral to enquire about our flight. We waited a freakin' one and a half hours before it was our turn. The lady said that she cannot postpone our flight unless it has been cancelled by AirAsia. If we were to postpone it before the flight is confirmed to be cancelled, we will have to pay the forfeited charges.
So what can we do? We went back, waiting to see if our flight got cancelled or not.

On the way home, however, I stopped by LeisureMall to buy my fave idol's latest album...

Look what I bought

For some readers who have read my blog a long time ago, probably would know that I am crazy about David Cook

I have been waiting a long time for this and I don't always buy a lot of original music CDs unless I am really in love with the singer

I saranghaeyo this part of the CD leaflet

Oh, did I mentioned I think Korean/Hanggul is one sexy language? Especially when it comes from the mouth of Hyun Bin?

And so, our flight eventually got cancelled (since the airport is still closed till now). On Friday, 28/11, the four of us went again to KL Sentral to postpone our Bangkok flight.

This time we waited 3 bloody hours for our turn because the counters were jam-packed with people! Only when it was finally our turn, we found out that there was a special queue just for cancelled Bangkok flight passengers and that we need not take a number and wait for our turn! WHAT THE FREAKIN' HELL???

Waiyin and I initially planned for some shopping but got delayed because of our KL Sentral affairs. By the time we reached Sg Wang, it was about 5pm.

I have never seen 2 people shop that fast. Yup, we did some express shopping. So fast that by 6.30pm, we were broke and settled for some ice-cream at this new place opposite the cinema called Kindori.
They specialised in yoghurt fat-free, all-natural ice-cream.

At RM7-10 per ice-cream, it is pretty pricey but really darn good;)

I had the golden kiwi flavor. They asked you to choose a fruit and make it then and there for you

Me, looking really tired (and dark)

Waiyin's pumpkin flavor

Waiyin, the poster girl for Kindori

We are promoting Kindori without charges...lolz...

The pic of the shop in case anyone wants to know (in case-lar)

Oh, btw we saw ChunHong at KL Sentral and we had McD's lunch with him. It turns out that he was supposed to leave for a camp in Pahang that day.

And now we come to Saturday, 29/11. M0m went to get her hair done so I wandered aimlessly into shops at Sg Wang and Times Square. Got myself a pair of flat sandals.

After that, we were off for lunch at Kampachi for Equatorial @ Pavillion.

My first time here

On the way back, we stopped by the bustling packed Niichi Fashion store

Where I thought this dress looked cute but too expensive for my liking

Btw, I am doing the Karen Cheng pose (I learned that from!)

whoever said that blogs aren't educational?
