Happy Chinese New Year!

You could have a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eye.. 
but only a true best friend  knows that you're really about to cry...  

Happy Chinese New Year guys!! :)

Today, I spend most of my time hanging out with my brother who's gonna be graduated as a young doctor this June. Despite the fact that i used to grab
red score for my high school biology (that's why hate bio, hehe:p), i'm addicted hearing his story about medical. I wonder how he explains all about i-should-know-general info about health in a way like my mom storytold cinderalla bedtime stories when i was a child. (Oh..I love my brother so..hihihi)

He told me a case from his professor:
Suppose you are a doctor in a small clinic in a remote area. What will do if you have an emergency patient while the medicine left is expired?
a. going out to town as fast as you can
b. looking for herbal medicine in a forest
c. do nothing
d. let him drink the expired drugs

What's your answer, readers?

I answer A but i was wrong
He said that the correct one was D
and screamed "WHATTT??"

then he explained:

The expired drugs is not a poison.
The expiry date's really just there as a mark that start from that day, the power of the drug will begin to degrade.
Like sailormoon with her moonstick light. Before the expired date, the light is 100% powerful to make the evil turn into dust. But after expired, it will only make the villain faint...then after will only make them weak...then it will become useless. 
The conclusion is: with or without her sailor power, sailormoon is not dangerous. In other words, first emergency treatment by letting the patient drinks a less powerful drug is better than not giving him medicine. :)

Tiba2 aku teringat teriakan ini: Sailooooorrr Mooooonn...dengaaaan kekuatan bulaaaan..akan membunuhmuu :p
I miss my babyboy....

It's Yellow :) today i'm gonna tell you a story...a nice story that i've read some times ago,

i forgot the detail, but i think it's like this :
So, there was a good and talented carpenter who was ready to retire from his current job. He told his boss of his plan to leave the business and try to live a more relax and enjoy his life. The boss was sorry to see his good and talented worker go.

But, before the carpenter gone, he asked if the carpenter could build just one more house, consider it's a personal favor from the boss to the carpenter. The carpenter said yes...but when he is working, his heart wasn't there at his work. He worked with lack of craftmanship, lack of attention to details, and he used inferior materials. When he finished his work, the boss came and inspect his work, and suddenly the boss asked for the key of this house, and the carpenter gave it to him.

Surprisingly, the boss handed back the key to the carpenter and said
"This is your house now, it's my gift to you"...
The carpenter was shocked, he build this house without putting is heart to his work, and without knowing that he was building his own house. If he had only known it, he would've done it all so differently. So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then with a shock we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we’d do it much differently.
We cannot go back. You are the carpenter for your own life. Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Life is a do-it-yourself project. Your attitudes and the choices you make today, build the “house” you live in tomorrow. Build wisely!

"Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt.
Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth."

Hello my lovely readers.. :)

So today I read an inspiring story and I just can't wait to share with you all..

Happy reading ♥

In 2007, I was an employee working with a great company. My boss was intelligent and inspiring. My coworkers were amicable and worked well as a team. The office environment was entirely casual; no suit and tie required. The pay was acceptable and vacation time fair. The work was adequate, with some days more challenging than others. Office communication was radically transparent, as the staff would often meet weekly to review the recent triumphs and discuss the goals ahead. By most accounts, I should have been content with my career. But something was missing. It started during my morning commute. I would suit up for my bike (depending on the weather) and pedal along the streets, admiring the sense of aliveness that comes with breaking a light sweat. Upon arriving to work, I removed the lock from my backpack and secured my bike next to the rear office entrance, and gazed at the steps leading inside. Suddenly the tiny voice in my head piped up: are you sure this is your path? The statement wasn’t critical or mocking. It was merely asking my opinion on this seemingly natural routine of heading into work every weekday for the requisite 8 hours.
Yes, i told the voice. And headed down the steps

Making Excuses
As the weeks wore on the voice didn’t disappear. Instead, while I typed up reports on my computer, designed a new web page, or printed another document, the question continued to reverberate in my head.

Are you sure this is your path?

I found myself forcibly silencing the voice. I reasoned that a steady paycheck was worthwhile, the experience invaluable, and besides, what else would I do instead of this job? True, I had always been somewhat of a self-starter. In high school I coded websites for extra cash, wrote short stories for the love of writing, and even animated cartoons in my free time. In fact, my wife’s first exposure to my personality came from browsing my photos, video clips, and essays posted on my website. After graduating university, I felt it was time to gain experience in a “normal” 9-5 career. I felt I lacked the knowledge and business network to try freelancing full-time. As a compromise, I started a travel blog Brave New Traveler, and developed it as an outlet for the creativity I felt wasn’t being utilized in my current job. I continued to ignore the voice.

Taking The Leap
A year passed. My employee contract was up for renewal. Nothing had really changed in the job itself; I was still doing similar tasks, not hating my work, but neither inspired by it either. On a day like any other, I remember sitting in my home office, answering a few emails from friends. I found my mind wandering to the impending employee contract; what I should ask for, how I should negotiate. Underneath this mental noise, I felt the tiny inner voice asking its question: Are you sure this is your path? Immediately, I smothered the voice with excuses as to why I should stick with my current career: the money, the stability, the team. After all, many people hated their jobs, and I actually liked mine…most of the time. Suddenly, it hit me: I was afraid. I was inventing reasons to avoid the uncertainty of making the leap and becoming a freelancer. The unknown is scary. The known is predictable. Yet if I actually listened the voice inside, I realized it was telling me to trust the unknown. It was telling me to follow the path that made me afraid, excited, curious, elated. It was telling me to follow the path with heart.

The Path With Heart
At some point in their lives, many people ask themselves this same question:
am I doing what I should be doing with my life?
Am I on the right path?
And more importantly, how do I know the right path when I find it?

Don Juan, quoted in the book The Teachings of Don Juan by Carlos Castenda, believes the right path is always apparent, if you know how to look.
Look at every path closely and deliberately. Does this path have heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you. A path without heart is never enjoyable. You have to work hard even to take it. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy, it does not make you work at liking it.

For me, the path with heart was to make the leap to freelancer. So that very night, when earlier I had been pondering the next year’s employee contract, instead I wrote an email to my boss. I explained how grateful I was for her mentorship and for the opportunity to work with her company; that the position was absolutely right for someone else, but it was ultimately not right for me.

The Road Ahead
Since that fateful decision, I have never looked back. Freelancing has provided me the space to create the life situation that I enjoy most, combining work and travel to develop projects that I infuse with my full passion and energy. Certainly, the unknown has been stressful and more challenging than a regular 9-5 job. But the rewards are felt everyday. First of all, I’m happier, and this happiness trickles outward in all aspects of my life. (Anyone who loves their work knows this to be a fundamental benefit). And second, I feel okay with uncertainty, since security is ultimately an illusion anyway. (Just as Wall Street).This was made possible because I listened to my inner voice. I stopped making excuses and embraced the path with heart. Of course, not all inner voices speak the same. But if you quieted your mind, took a deep breath, and really listened…

What’s your inner voice telling you?

Be happy guys!! :) Pink ♥ U

Live your dreams and be happy
learning english 101

Hi, its Y this time :D
Just like the title, today i want to take you for an english lesson. Actually, i want to tell the story with inglish (english that written just like the pronounciation, e.g : just like the title; jas laik de taitel) language, but it's so hard, and i'm afraid the funny part will lose...but i'll try my best to keep it funny.

So, there are 2 persons in a small car. they talk about "Nothing" (really, literally Nothing). Let's call this 2 persons as John Doe and Jane Doe. The conversation start when Jane asked John to pronounce "Nothing" in front of her...

John : Nothing (with the sound of "h")
Jane : say it again
John : Nothing (again, still with the sound of "h")

Jane : louder
John : Nothing (still...with an "h" and now let's add some "confusion")

suddenly, John opened the car's window and shout to outside "NOTHING" and at this time, Jane is laughing hard (this time without that "WTH-are-you-doing" kinds of look)

Jane : now say "Something"
John : Something (still, with "h")
Jane : now, "Anything"
John : Anything (whats wrong with Jane today??)

and Jane told John that she usually speaks fast, so she didn't give much attention about pronounciation to what she said. the "problem" (that shouldn't be a problem actually) is the "h" pronounciation in "nothing"... ooow, so that's the point of this conversation...really simple, let's try it again. okay, this next conversation should be the funny part of this:

John : how do you pronounce "Nothing"
Jane : Nothing (this time, without an "h")
John : ow i c...that's the problem...let's say "h" you should say it "Nothing"...not "Nating"
Jane : Nothing (attempts #2, still failed a bit, but it's getting better and better)

John : yes...there, you actually can do it. say it like that. N-O-T-H-I-N-G
Jane : okay N-O-T-H-I-N-G. got it!
John : great! now say it
Jane : NATING!
John + Jane : ...let's change the subject...

okay Jane, just like an old saying..."Practice makes PERFECT"...keep practicing, Jane!

ps: it's inside joke, but i'm still grinning and laughing when i type this story. the last part of the conversation was made by me myself inspired by the points of the conversation mixed with some funny stories that i remember. but hey, it's still funny :p whoever know the true identity of this John and Jane...just keep it for yourself. and for Jane...whoever you're truly a funny person! Merdeka! Read more :)
Mac: fun @ office

That pic is just another way of having fun during our hectic day. A friend of mine wondered how naughty we were, sneaking out office time for doing that. But, He is totally wrong! Those aren't a long digital imaging. Guess what, We only need 1 minute and voila! :)

Those are an add on effect for Macintosh Photo Booth. Just in one minute... Our face is stretched up, fresh and we're ready for the HARD work *again*! Well, It's not fun to have fun alone. We'd love to invite you too. So quick..grab it here :)

Our tips is: Use 4 multiples shot in 3 secs instead of single shot. The icon is in the second down left of ur photo booth. You will have a more natural candid fun pose. Also, Apple will auto layout it for you in a square row like our pic above.

So tonight, I was re-read all the articles that've been written here, somehow, it's just fun and interesting whenever i read it. I'm inspired and wrote this as a supporting article for 2009 : time for a better life . Did you ever heard some old-saying said "Dogs are men's best friend" ? (okay, i'm not saying that all men's best friends are's just an old-saying). Just like any other relationship that happened between human, every best friends must have something to share, right? Did you ever wondered what we could learn about enjoying life from this kind of "best friend"?

let's take a look..

1. When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
2. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
3. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
4. When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
5. Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
6. Take naps.
7. Stretch before rising.
8. Run, romp, and play daily.
9. Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
10. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
11. On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
12. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
13. When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
14. No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout… run right back and make friends.
15. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
16. Eat with enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
17. Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you’re not.
18. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
19. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.

How about that?
feeling better now? :)


Ms. Blue is noticing that not everyone love the job they are doing.
But surprisingly, a lot of them simply decide NOT to leave and keep staying miserable.

She understands that each of them might have a different reason..
Some might be necessity. No job, No salary.. OMG How do i live..
Some might feel it's their fate. This is my family business. I don't want to have dat ungrateful-rebel-child-look if i escape..
Some might be status. Leave it means good bye to my lifestyle..
Some might be anxiety. I don't know where else to work..
Some might be fear. I can't face all those gossips and judging if I say bye to my job..
Some might be sacrificing, or salary, or 'sungkan' mode or else..

But as they continue to go through it.
They're suffering the exasperation everyday while wishing..
that one day it will make sense..
that one day day it will worth it..
then they will begin to doubt whether the sum of good is just equal to the pain..
Well, What Ms. Blue is trying to make you aware is that:
She learns that the burden will hug you tight
just as long as you have the courage to cut it off.

As what Johnny Carson said:
"Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy in what you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health,
you will have had MORE success than you could possibly have imagined."

ps: Don't you love being paid for doing what you really love? :) ♥

weekend's thought : Men VS Women

Hi, it's Y again,
Some times ago, i've read interesting fact about women's word and what they means. i don't know how much it is close to truth, but from my personal thought it's about 80% true (no offense to the ladies). and for the women, don't worry, i'll share the men's words with you too :) just remember, it's just a joke (only if you want to see it as a joke, but if you think this is serious, i'm not responsible to your relationship after reading this :p ).
For men, don't misunderstood women, sometimes they only say what's inside their mind and their thought...and for women, we, the men, are not mind reader, so just talk and say what you want to us, don't worry, we'll try to understand :)

{for men's reading}
9 words women use to hide their feelings :
1. “Fine”
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. if your girlfriend asking you about how other girls look, DO NOT use this word (it usually ends with an argument and you'll receive this "fine" word)

2. "Five minutes"
If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3. "Nothing"
This is the calm before the storm. This means something,and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end with "Fine".

4. "Go ahead"
this comes with 2 type of go-ahead:
a. with raised eyebrows This is a dare! don't do it. this is the one that will result in a woman getting upset over and will end with the word "Fine"
b. with normal eyebrows This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will get a "go ahead (with raised eyebrows)" in just a few minutes, followed by the combo of "Nothing" and "Fine"

5. "Loud sigh"
This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of "nothing") but if the women do the Soft sigh, mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content. just don't push your luck at the time like this

6. "That's okay"
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. (Y's note : i don't entirely agree about this one :p)

7. “Thanks”
She is thanking you, do not question, just say “you’re welcome”. (unless she says “Thanks a lot” - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say “you’re welcome” … that will bring on "Whatever").

8. “Whatever”
Is a women’s way of saying "shut up and stop it!"

9. "Don’t worry about it, I got it"
Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking “What’s wrong?” For the woman’s response it with "Nothing"

{for women's reading}
9 words men use to hide their thoughts:
1. "Fine"
Literally means that's just fine, unless SHOUTED LIKE THIS!

2. "Five minutes"
It depends on what are you asking them. "five minutes" means 30 minutes if you ask them to do house-work. "five minutes" means "just a sec" if you ask them to make love with you. preparing to leave? "five minutes" means five minutes, and if you're not in the car in exactly five minutes you will find yourself under a veritable barrage of honking until you rectify the fact.

3. "Nothing"
He forgot what he was going to say. seriously.

4. "Go ahead"
Permission granted. Do what you want before he changed his mind!

5. "Loud sigh"
This is a sign of frustration, and means, basically, "I so don't understand what do you (women) want?"

6. "That's okay"
Perhaps what are you've been doing is not perfect, but that will do. But if "That's okay" being followed with "Loud sigh", that is a sign of dissapointment.

Thank you, really, it has nothing behind. just watch the intonation.

8. "Is it OK if I...?"
He's already done it, so it doesn't matter if you agree or not. it's up to you if you want to use "Go ahead (with raised eyebrows)" (see #4 on men's section above)

9. "Don't worry about it, I got it"
This isn't often used by men, but when uttered it holds the same connotations as "Stop asking if I need help, I am a MAN, I am more than capable of handling this shit myself". Women often challenge this, which can result in a combo of "Go ahead" and "Loud sigh"

Do you agree? as for me, i can agree at some points :p (which points?that's a secret i won't tell you...hey, sounds like gossip girl). just remember, men and women are born different, that's why they should complete each other :)

2009: Time for a better life

Hello everyone.. :)

So here I am, Miss Pink with her first post in this blogging world... Yay for me... hehehe..
And for today, I just want to share some tips about how to live a better life in 09 :)

Here we go!
1. Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day. And while you walk, smile. :)
2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
3. Sleep for 7 hours.
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
5. Play more games. (ow yeah...)
6. Read more books than you did the previous year.
7. Make time to practice meditation, yoga, and prayer. They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.
8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
9. Dream more while you are awake.
10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
11. Drink plenty of water.
12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
13. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
14. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
15. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
16. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
17. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
18. Smile and laugh more.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
20. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
21. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
22. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
23. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about. Don't compare your partner with others.
24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
25. Forgive everyone for everything.
26. What other people think of you is none of your business.
27. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
28. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
29. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
30. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
31. The best is yet to come.. always....
32. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up!
33. Do the right thing!
34. Call your family often.
35. Your inner most is always happy. So be happy. :)
36. Each day give something good to others.
37. Don't over do. Keep your limits...

Time is the coin of your life.
It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

"Friends are like bra, close to your heart, and always there for support"

So, yesterday, when i was delivering snacks to my friends, they asked me create a blog for them (what a coincidence, since i've just made my own blog last night before). The reason is simple : to have fun and make a journal of their thoughts and experiences. but the process to making this blog is not that simple as it looks! (trust me, you should be there with us when we create this). okay, so i sit in front of the computer (with "fruit-bitten-by-something" logo), and showing off my (amateur) skills on blogging...that's when the first problem occured...the NAME!

Before i came, they've already pick many names, such as rainbow, happy, happy rainbow, etc. etc., but some peeps already picked them...let's think about different name, something nice like bitter, sweet, bittersweet (hey, i become more expert in word-combining) , sweetnsour, sweets...and guess what? the names has been picked too! hmm, let's try something unique (i prefer to call it unique, rather than weird) like : hahahehe, hahahihi, hahaha (it's the name! not a laughing, we're no crazy yet)...and believe me, we couldn't use them either! wth! okay, let's keep trying...we combine our fave, blue, and yellow...pinkblueyellow (haha, i showed-off my word-combining skill again, peeps)...and Voila! it worked! the pinkblueyellow officially born on 15.01.09. thanks for my partners support! and thank you too, siomay, pisang molen...haha

Actually, we're planning to take this blog to new level...let's see, we'll try to maintain this blog as a space for us to share our thoughts, experiences, journal, travel and living (reminds me to Discovery channel :p), foods, fashions, anything! we would love to share it with you, readers...even our craziness and madness.

You can see the author's faces above, yes 3 retarded persons (okay, 2 retarded persons actually...what?okay okay, 1 retarded person, there, happy? hahaha). The founder of pinkblueyellow, and also 3 close friends. So, enough for introduction...and the first post...can't wait for another posts.
