Japanese food

If there’s one word I would use to describe Japanese cuisine, it would be peculiar. Everything - from the food itself to the eating etiquette - is very peculiar and although Japanese isn't one of my favorite food in the world, I find the whole eating experience very fascinating.

I have only been to Japanese restaurants for about 5 times or so sepanjang hayat saya (the recent one was yesterday at SJ), so it's not really surprising when everytime the food is served, I would go "okay, how do I eat this thing" bcoz seriously I don't know. Like the California roll for example. What is the right way to eat that thing - makan dari atas ke bawah, or dari bawah cone tu ke atas, or even- using fork and knife? (oh and why is it called California roll anyway? Knape bukan Hiroshima roll ker, Osaka roll ker kan).

Another thing, I didn't know that you're not supposed to eat soup using a spoon; you should lift the bowl to your mouth instead. Banyak lagi pantang larang yg haku main langgar jer. Makan tempura guna tangan sbb senang nak cicah2, and pouring soy sauce + wasabi from the dipping bowl onto my rice (sbb soup dia tasteless).

Anyway, I love salmon and salmon and tempura and err, salmon and California rolls and salmon and hmmm... salmon. I still don't have the guts to stuff myself with unagi and baby octopus tho, bcoz I'm afraid of throwing up. I would rather have the green tea ice-cream, however pelik it tastes.

A Blast Weekend

Last weekend's STS was one of the best bcoz:

- it was at the Ritz-Carlton so during break times I get to feast my eyes on those ever-so-gorgeous bags at Fendi, Givenchy and LV,
- there were lotsss of new people. Like more than half I think,
- this time, ramai Melayu dah participate (which is a grrreat thing bcoz the previous STSes, about 70-80% of the people attended were omputih and Chinese),
- the banana and chocolate shake that was being served for lunch was yummy! (I drank 2 glasses and was so full like a balloon. I never liked banana and choc before),
- the tickets for next month's STS were all sold out in just one night. It's getting frenzy I'm telling ya!

And here's the bestest part:

My other half was one of the speakers, which makes him now an Herbalife celebrity! Heee....

Seeing him talking on stage for the first time was highly excitable, seriously. I was both so excited and nervous terlebih2 for him sampai haku sakit perot. I knew he can do it, but the part yg dia kne ckp depan hundreds of people for 45 minutes yg buat sakit perot tu. Tapi sakit perut ku berbaloi juaaa.

Annndd being the love of his life (ehem), yours truly got a bit of the attentions too. His uplines kept on saying to me, "you must be so nervous. I remembered I was too when *her Belgian partner* was on stage for the first time. In fact I was more nervous than him" and "you must be very proud!" and "he did a great job, didn't he? It would be great if the two of you are together on stage" . I ammmmmmmmmm! (I mean, I am proud. Bukan nak jadi speaker yer. Blum lagi ;p). He's the youngest speaker so far, and I'm so very proud of him! It's like an honour, you know. Adalah tidak wajar jika tidak berbangga kerana bukan calang2 worang yg bleh diiktiraf utk jadi pencakap. huhuu. But seriously after seeing him on stage that day, I have this sudden urge to be an Herbalife speaker too one day. I want to talk on stage, I want to share my success, I want to be able to lead people, to help people. Afterall, I am an Aries and Aries are natural-born leaders. I have to start somewhere kalau nak jadi President's Team kan kan (or rather, the wife of a President's Team. teehee). I just need to learn how to get rid of sifat2 penakut + pemalu yg maha kronik ini that have been residing inside of me eversince I was a baby.

Anyway, I managed to record a few videos and here are the first two excerpts.

Profound lesson learned today:

Some people MAKE things happen;
Some people WATCH things happen;
Some just WONDER what happened.

White is my new black

I can't remember the last time I bought shoes. Black shoes to be precise. It seems like agessss ago. Do you know that I have zero black shoes? Yup- none. Nadaaaa. (I've given away the black ones so they don't count). I've been looking for the perfect pair of black shoes since forever (just so you know, my definition of a perfect shoe is 3.5-4" heel, peeptoe and slingback). It's either they're affordable but none came to my liking, or they're dead gorgeous but cost an absolute bomb. And I mean Louboutin's kinda bombs.

Oh I give up!

Anyway, I'm kinda excited with this season's shoe collection from Eclipse! None of the blacks caught my eyes tho, but my eyes are especially attracted to this white beauty. Kinda like love at first sight. And somehow it reminds me of Chanel's.

I must get 'em!

And oh hey, those limited edition designer shoes for Eclipse are on sale now. I love the one by Gillian Hung with straps all over it, but too bad takde hitam.

Bling It On!

Here's how you can glamourize your handphones, without costing a bomb:

Bling it!

Those are cystal stickers btw, so they won't stick forever - especially if you talk long hours on the phone coz the heat would eventually melt the sticker glue. You might wanna stick 'em with super glue then, just in case.

Anyway, I've also added my own personal touch to his umm.. accessory. I loike! I think he likes it too *grin* (although he was silent for a few seconds before agreeing).
