Yoghurt...Yogurt...Yoghourt...

Whatever you call it..it'll still be my fave dairy product=)
Oh how I love yoghurt. The word yoghurt is derived from the Turkish, yo─čurt, which literally means dense or thick. Every weekend, it's a must for me to buy my favourite frozen yogurt in town, Sour Sally. But it's also a must for me to have at least one cup of yogurt everyday..strawberry yogurt has always been my fave. Why do I like yoghurt? For sure because it's fat free (yeah!), has a low calorie, it's good for your digestion system, have other benefits more or less the same with milk, considering it's also a dairy product. I always order the same size of plain yoghurt but always change the fruits...strawberry, kiwi, banana, mango...maybe this week I'll try to mix it with lychee.

Like the flowing river


I've never read any of Paulo Coelho's books..afraid I might not like it. But a cousin of mine suggested that I should read it. And I said to her (considering there are lots of title of Paulo Coelho's books!) "Which one should I read first?"..."Like the flowing river (Ser como o rio que flui)" she said. Why? Because it's a famous collection of thoughts and short stories of Paulo Coelho. By reading it..people will get a broad idea of Paulo Coelho's writing. I guess this will be my next reading.

Love Scene

Have you seen the movie Love Actually?The setting was in UK...on Christmas season...probably it's the right time for you who hasn't watched this movie to see it. Not to mention to those of you who has already seen the movie. I've seen it hmmm more or less six times. And still love it. One of the scenes is this scene..In which a guy actually falls in love with a girl...who actually has been married to his bestfriend...The best part is when in the end after the girl kissed the guy...the guy says "Enough...enough now"

a Poem...

So this is how it feels like...
to finally have someone who you can always count on
So this is how it feels like...
to finally be able to show the real you
So this is how it feels like...
to finally have someone to share your dreams with
So this is what it feels like...
to be in LOVE

Switzerland

Switzerland is a small, steep country, much more up and down than sideways, and is all stuck over with large brown hotels built on the cuckoo clock style of architecture.

Quote of the day

One's home is like a delicious piece of pie you order in a restaurant on a country road one cozy evening - the best piece of pie you have ever eaten in your life - and can never find again. After you leave home, you may find yourself feeling homesick, even if you have a new home that has nicer wallpaper and a more efficient dishwasher than the home in which you grew up.

Shoes...

Presenting you...Hollywood's most stylish...most expensive..most unique and craziest shoes. When I think about it..hmm..I would probably think hundred of times before actually decided to buy (or splurge to be more precise) on something that I would not wear often...I would rather spend it on Clothes and clothes and clothes or maybe with bags also. I'm more into Bag&Purse fans rather than Shoes fanatic. But yeah...Hollywood celebrities...they can buy and have almost everything they want...

Gossip Girl xoxo

Last night I watched Gossip Girl season 2 with my sister..Oh God..I love the fashion!I like Blair Waldorf chic and sophisticated style but personally My style is more into Serena Van Der Woodsen who always wear effortlessly gorgeous clothes. A kind of girl who always ready to just go anywhere and being confidence with whatever clothes she's wearing. But if I can choose...a mixture of both style would be very chic and fashionable.
