Twilight is Upon Us as We Fall Irrevocably in Love

Finally, after MONTHS, I watched Twilight for the very first time. Yes!

Obviously, I am experiencing belated exhiliration over the movie and of course the book. In fact I have the book but I have not the time nor the chance to read it yet. It's still in it's plastic packaging!! Anyways, I know of the book even before the movie came out. Last year, I got hooked on Youtube and one of the people I subscribed to was an avid Twilight fan in the US. About that time, the movie was just getting it's buzz in the movie scene. So when the movie did come out, I was totally excited about it. Especially when the main hero was the dude who played Cedrig Diggory on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. At the time, I hardly even knew his name was Robert Pattinson. *swoon* Unfortunately, time didn't permit me a chance to watch the movie. So I missed out on it on the big screen... with Robert Pattinson totally in your face with all his charms. :(

BUT, that's not the only reason the movie had it's appeal. It was just the whole "ambience" and "feel" of the movie that captured me. It wasn't a typical teenage love story and it also wasn't a typical vampire movie. It had both. A totally punked out teenage chick flick! My cuppa tea.

After the movie last night, my head was absolutely buzzing. I liked the movie and yes, after watching it, you can't help but feel the love in it. Robert Pattinson managed to bring Edward Cullen to life and by the end of the movie, viewers could almost believe that there was only Edward Cullen. He lived! By the end of the movie, I didn't necessarily swoon over the actor but just that figment of imagination that came to life who was SOOOOOO enamoured with Bella that you just wished you'd be able to feel just a smidgen of that feeling in your lifetime.

So what do I do about it? Simple, I Wikipedia-ed Twilight and found out that the story is going to turn out just nice throughout the course of the series. Hence, I am going to get all the four books of the Twilight series and immerse myself in their world. Yay!

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…
