Dede's Birthday Part 1

It's already July. Dede's birthday falls in early July, which means, celebration! Haha. We have all got a bit bored with Korean food. Hence, we shall then settle with Western. Dede then suggested The Hill. In fact, I heard quite a bit about this restaurant too.

So yeah it's called The Hill. It's located at a hill side, where parking is horribly bad. There are no parking spaces and no proper parking lots. People just park at the road side. The valet cheats people money, they charge you 10 bucks, and they park at the road side too. They are actually getting money for a public parking space. Like, what da hell, right?

From these settings, you can tell that the price is not gonna be cheap. In a place like Damansara Heights, you wouldn't expect anything to be cheap there, right? But, it's still affordable.

Then it's us. We have known each other for 6 years, omg, I just can't believe this. I miss the studying years the most.

Uh-huh the heart shape watermelon. It's not purely juice. It's actually cocktail where I find that the alcohol is a bit too strong considering that the watermelon juice itself at times may taste like some cough mixture already.

This is also a cocktail. This mixture is much better. This is dangerous though. You can drink and drink, and you wouldn't know how much you drank and boom! haha ...

Nature Republic in 1 Utama

It's actually not difficult to serve me. Sales assistants are there if I need any assistance. I am just as happy if you just ignore me. I will ask if I need to. Most probably, I don't need your useless help anyway.

But, what I really dislike is you being RUDE. I can't take rude people, and that includes sales assistants. Don't come telling me you have a bad day, because I don't take that as an excuse. In fact, the moment you're being rude, there's no way it can be reasoned. I was in a front line, and I know exactly how those kinda job felt like.

I was in Nature Republic in 1 Utama. I know that I should have boycotted that place before. Please do not misunderstand, I like this brand and there's nothing wrong with this brand or the products. From previous experience, I have a very strong dislike for that particular sales assistant there. I believe he's the only male sales assistant there. I have not liked him from my first experience stepping into that shop.

I did not step in until yesterday when my friend was the one who wanted to buy something.

Friend: Do you have tester?
He: That's why I asked you just now whether you wanna try or not. *in a very hostile tone*

Dude, that's  not funny. I am very particular in politeness and him speaking in such a way is absolutely unacceptable. It's not my freaking problem if you are tired after a long day, or you argued with your boyfriend. You should have just ignored me and everything will be fine. If you don't like serving us, just do us a favor by not approaching us. It will definitely turn out better than it had been.

When he was explaining the product to my friend, he was actually looking elsewhere too. I'm not asking for a five star service, if you wish to be rude, I will appreciate if if you could just keep your mouth shut in one corner.

We left the shop, and my friend wanted to buy it at a later time. So, we went back after that. Guess what? He didn't serve us, which I am glad, but it doesn't make much of a difference.

The girl was nice, she was explaining and all. But, I was very much irritated with him counting the money in the cashier. Yes, I know it was already 9.30 PM but you don't close your shop until 10 PM. It's just counting money you don't need half an hour to count. It's either you are plain lazy or that you are not interested in that job. If so, why not just quit. I am more than happy because when you quit, then I can start going to the shop whenever I want. Yeah, we all can hear you counting, you don't want us to be there. If that's the case, why don't you close shop at 10.01 AM? Like d'uh? Or that you are so incompetent. Since you are so unfit, just get lost. That brand does not need you there.

Whenever I wanna buy something from Nature Republic, I don't go to the one in 1 Utama though I am practically there 5 days a week! I rather travel further, such as Times Square or Sunway or just anywhere else except the one in 1 Utama because I despise him.

This dude here had literally tarnished the whole brand name, just because of his stupid attitude. When I was in Nature Republic in Korea, it was just so professional. Him? Heh, my foot. This is not the way you should be talking to a customer, no matter which industry you are in. You should just be fired since that you are not doing the brand any good.

Punctuality

I do, honestly feel that Malaysians in general should be punctual, whether it's an appointment with friends, colleagues, dates and etc.

Of course, who am I to say if your gf/bf has not said a word about you being late. I know that! In terms of friends, or even colleagues, I feel you should be punctual, and be on time. You don't agree on a time then you can't be there at the promised time. That is so uncalled for.

This needs a change badly. Everywhere I go, there's like this one or two asses who will always be late, like always. It's so frustrating when you made the effort to be on time, get all stressed up to be there ON time and those few fellas can laugh their way out.

Seriously, what is so difficult with being punctual? This is a form of respect you show towards the other party. Hence, if you are late, and you do not have the courtesy to inform, I take that as an insult.

I am not saying being late for 5 minutes and I get all fired up. It's about half an hour, 1, 2 or even 3 hours. It happens. Maybe, once or twice you just can't make it, okay! My rule is, inform the people involved. If you don't, I feel we should be distanced away from each other. Seriously.

If you feel that it's not necessary for me to be all worked up, think again and put yourself in the shoes of the person waiting. How irritating can that really be especially if you are alone.

I'm actually not emphasizing into anyone's fault or direction, it's a general horrible attitude that a Malaysian possess. I hate this, really very much. We can do so much more things in life when people are punctual. Really and truly.

I know generally Malaysian time is when you promise at 8am, they will be there at 9am. However, of late, it's getting worse and worse. It's much later than that. Seriously, people? Are you gonna be so laidback til this extent that it makes people irritated? Give me a break please.

The Danger

We were informed that the crime rate has decreased. But, knowing it from how many years we have been living here, that's certainly not true.

If you wanna know about the truth, login to Facebook and read your newsfeed. You have a few people reporting that and spreading to their friends how dangerous it is outside there, as their friends or someone they know had been a victim of snatch thefts, robberies or etc. That's what has been happening on a daily basis, I'm not exaggerating even one bit.

When the unfortunate happens, you know that you gotta report this to the police station and that is a duty and responsibility of yours to do so as a citizen even if you escape unhurt. When you finally arrive and do the reporting, all you have been told is that "it's common these days, don't bother us with all these petty things, settle if yourself." Now, it isn't just one person that had told me that, there have been quite a handful of people. Let's just say that they are really good at something, but not good at the other and the cons so happens to be your safety. So, let's just not expect anything. But, to rely on yourselves. Take extra precautions and don't take anything for granted.

That's really helpful, thank you very much. You know too that sometimes you just can't avoid that as all these can happen at anywhere and anytime. Even your own house might not be safe. Shopping malls have taken an extra role offering to shoppers an escort to your car, especially to single female shoppers. It's good to know that rather that when it happened, you report that to the authorities in charge and you have been turned away as if you wanted that to happen.

Whatever it is, it's just not safe. Please be extra careful wherever you are. You might be with your friends, but don't get too into it that you forget your own safety.

Seriously, I don't know who in the world feels paranoid in their own country. Really, I don't know who. I do. All of us do.

Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin

2 days back I bought a book with the title Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin which was then made into a movie. It depicts a story about a 30-year old lawyer working in a top firm, has a best friend who is gonna get married to her old friend back in law school. On her 30th birthday, an affair took place between the protagonist and the best friend's fiance. The writer had brought the readers explore the meaning of true love, jealousy, friendship and betrayal as well as ethics and if it's worth what you fight for.

Sometimes, things aren't always so clear in life, that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and at times, you need to risk it all to win true happiness. From a society point of view, things could be just wrong and that it's not right to do certain things as such as it has been regarded as morally and socially wrong, but if that's your true happiness and you need to sacrifice something, there's only one chance in life.

Of course, in the book, Rachel and Dex ended up together eventually, but I wonder how will it be like if Rachel ends up with Ethan instead since that he's like the one that knows her in and out including her deepest and darkest secret. In fact, I really would like to have a friend like Ethan. He's interesting, a very supportive friend and he doesn't judge! His only concern was that Rachel will end up hurt. Most guys will like Darcy more as she is the more fun-loving, feminine girl but to him, he prefers Rachel that seems to be in Darcy's shadow and Rachel gotta tolerate every single shit about Darcy. Damn! I know how this feels! It will be even more interesting if Darcy had caught them red-handed on the street or something.

It's so interesting I have finished the book within 1.5 days during working hours only.

When The Shoe Fits In Perfectly

"Just like a shoe, if someone is meant for you they will just fit perfectly. No forcing, no struggling, no pain."

Yeah, that is exactly how it works. You don't have to try too hard to win someone over and over yet not succeeding, it just means that person is not meant for you.

In the other hand, if the person wants to cheat, no matter how you stop him or her, that person is still gonna cheat eventually. There's no use stopping, prohibiting, or forcing someone to stay because if the heart says stay, they will. They don't have to be reminded of in any way. If they are loyal enough, it will never even cross their mind to even do anything out of the belief, and out of the norm.

If you feel pain, torment and struggle in the relationship, leave. It's the best solution because that's not how it supposed to be. You can stop a person once or twice, and not your entire life. Once you have been betrayed, it takes a lot of courage to actually trust that person again. Things will never be the same, ever again.

To those that cheat, why go cheating when you have the option to end one first, then only go with the other. That is totally unacceptable. If you wanna have a back up, you should back off from people's lives. What is so difficult? "I found that I don't feel the same way anymore, and so I am ending this." So go ahead with your new life. Things will not turn out as ugly as cheating. You will never have an excuse for cheating. Never ever. It applies for both genders, not any particular one.

The same goes to third parties, an outsider. You don't have to remind that they are without partners, and it's time to find one because when the right one comes along, they know. As the quote had mentioned, they will fit in perfectly in your life.

Lost Innocence - Susan Lewis

I have just finished this book. Lost Innocence by Susan Lewis. It's about 2 families where affairs were involved which then leads to betrayal, lies and all. The turning point is when an incident happened, these fractured ties had then lead to the next generation. Betrayal, trust, jealousy, lies ... and this is what we face in our lives. I love reading all these kind of complicated stories, I don't really like reading happy stories. haha. Happy things don't always happen, so in these stories, you might learn a thing or two, in the event you were to face this in your life.

Socially Unaccepted

The nights of insomnia, sleepless nights, nightmares had all ended.

Now, is a whole new thing. For the past one week, I am getting really irritated with someone who has a similarity of someone from my past life before.

I really despise people starring, second I really dislike people talking rubbish. First of all, please don't try too hard to be socially accepted because no matter how hard you try, you will definitely be socially unaccepted. So, don't worry. Be happy. As you know, you will need to be who you are. Don't worry again, no matter what show you put on, or you are the real you, I can't accept both. Don't bother trying to talk to me because for obvious reason, I ignore you completely.

I don't entertain people talking without brains. Act dumb or real dumb, you're still dumb. That's what is a pure turn off. Not even friends, dude, we will not be friends, and never be friends. I choose my friends. I don't simply take anyone as my friends. Well, I have been proven right anyway.

In just a matter of days, you have done an absolute uncalled thing that people will not be able to accept it. In social value, you're definitely wrong. You might think it's okay to be doing certain things, so you can go ahead to do all the things in the world, but I will not. I will definitely not agree on such things because only lowlife will do such things.

If you know you have been despised or disliked, please read it clearly and move away. No matter what you do from now on to try to make things better, it will not happen. I hold my grudge. People who have their skin as thick as yours is just really damn pathetic. To be honest, you have literally been blacklisted, all from your God damn freaking actions.

You asked for it, and so now you deserve it. Everything will come back to you. It will be such a paradise not having you around, like really. It's my privilege.
