Night view of the exterior of glass temple.

 

It was my very first experience to enter an Indian temple and joined their prayers. Thanks to my friend, Su. The prayer started around 7pm, there were live prayer band playing the music for praying. There was a man who conducted the prayer ( I dunno how should address him). He would pray to each god and goddess with flowers and waters and sing the prayers.

 

There were many gods inside. So the prayer took approximately 1.5 hours to 2 hours to finish. Other than the gods, there were many other statues from other religions at display.

The interior of the temple. From ceiling to the walls, they are all made of glass. It is all glittery inside.

 

So if you have not been there, it is worth a trip to experience and understand different culture. It is interesting to join the prayer, if you are worried that you do not know how to pray, just follow what others do!

(* a very friendly reminder:  Make sure you drink less water and use the loo before u travel to the temple. The toilets there are quite awful T_T)

十一月15-珍惜所有

贫乏简陋的空间, 内心很平静。 因为一切很简单。

慢慢老去, 慢慢领悟, 原来活在自己的世界何尝不是件乐事?

———————————————

今天想分享一位朋友的故事,主题就定为“人生如戏”。其实,我没有看戏的心里,也不是要嘲讽他还是什么。只是就像我们常常感慨那样,我们看戏时觉得很戏剧性,但是戏里的一切其实都是从我们的生活中发生的事而来的。

———————————————

故事的主人公简称为T君。T君是接近三十而立年龄的人,被公司调派来了南部。 因为是建筑与工程的公司,在南部的site office清一色是男生,只有几位友族女同事。 人在异乡,难免日子苦闷。 机缘巧合下认识了冰小姐,冰小姐呢就决定尽尽地主之谊,带大家吃吃喝喝找美食。T君呢,就偶尔会聊聊自己私事。冰小姐不以为意,觉得可能这T君性格原本就比较负面,况且又一个人生活在异乡,就安慰他,希望他能正面点。

常常T君言语间就充满负能量,有一天突然提起自己很难过,和前女友分手,可是一直放不下。他说和前女友在一起九年,分手三年了,却始终无法释怀。最近前女友说要结婚了,他的心情更是低落难过。冰小姐听了当然也希望他早日走出来,就告诉她说既然前女友都要结婚了,他真的是时候死心了,如果怕看到她的结婚照什么的,就unfollow她的fb吧,然后把全部以前的东西都丢了,舍不得的话就全收进一个箱子,就不要一直看着了。其实冰小姐就把他当朋友那样,希望朋友能过得好些。

话说不知怎的,男人就是很容易滥情。一个月的时间就好像恋上冰小姐了。送茶到办公室(因为冰小姐不喝咖啡)。有一天匿名送了 fragrance diffuser,冰小姐是有很surprised,因为冰小姐的房间最爱放这个味道的香氛。但是冰小姐也非常懊恼,因为只把T君当成一位朋友。 匿名送礼物后两天,由于冰小姐也没提起收到礼物了,T君很是着急,忍不住自爆(自己爆料)送了礼物。冰小姐逮到机会,马上表明心意,说明没有进一步发展的意愿。也回绝了未来发展的可能。 本以为事情就此结束,没想到。。。之后T君送来了99朵玫瑰花,外加情书一封。当然冰小姐很佩服他的勇气和坚持,因为冰小姐正和其他好友一起吃晚饭,他就这样抱着一大束貌似拿来求婚用的花过去了。全餐厅目不转睛瞪眼等着看求婚大计划。 (当然最后没戏看,因为不是求婚大计划)佩服归佩服,但是感情不是只有佩服就行的。那之后冰小姐拒绝后还是没办法,因为太懊恼了只好避而不见。T君更为着急,不停打电话传简讯。 更之后出动mutual fren。 简称此mutual fren 为ZY小姐好了。

重点来了,ZY和冰小姐说其实T君真的很用心也很可怜。

ZY说“其实你知道吗,在送你花的前两星期,T君的前女友去世了。 ”

“什么?不是才说前女友要结婚了吗?我还advise他要放下了” 

“不是的,他前女友真的去世了!” 

“他都不是这么跟我说的” 冰小姐不自觉地觉得自己好像在被人整的感觉。 (T君明明说前女友爱上别人的,因为自己以前只顾工作没有顾虑前女友的感受,对前女友也很不好)

“他前女友三年前患了子宫颈癌,不能为T君生小孩,希望T君能另外找个女朋友过幸福的生活。所以她才要求分手的。 T君不知道这件事。然后前女友今年癌症复发,不久前去世的。去世后前女友的朋友才联络T君,告诉他这个消息。前女友还录了vcd,看了真的很难过。”

“你看过那个video?” 冰小姐继续抱持狐疑态度 (这女人就爱怀疑,都不相信人)

 “看了,哭到不行。T君也狂大哭。他前女友还有给他食谱教他怎么做菜。真的很感动也很难过。T君真的是值得托付一生的男人。他之前一人打几份工,又兼职读硕士,很努力存钱只希望能和前女友开间会计楼。他是会为了给你未来而努力的男人,你就给他个机会吧。。。”

“唉。。。” 冰小姐只有叹息的份儿,却也不能做些什么。

*******************************************

当然后面还有很多的对话与故事,就不多说了,因为还未完结。

但是我觉得呢,可能是因为尝试了失去的滋味,所以才给了T君奋不顾身、坚持到底的勇气。因为如果失去了,就真的失去再也没有了。 我们当中有多少个人明白呢,明白了这个道理的人,又有多少人拿出勇气来做不让自己以后后悔的事呢?

我们都明白“且行且珍惜”, 希望大家都能做到(当然也对自己说),反正嘛“时间就像乳沟,挤一挤总会有的!” 哈哈哈!

Cats Cafe. Cats at their Sanctuary @ JB Town

This is a place where all cat lovers will love!  The Cats.Cafe!

(Well, im not a cat lover, but i love all small furry animals ^^)

This is a cafe where the cats are able to move around freely, you can touch and pat the cats while eating, having high tea and chit chatting with friends! (They have house rules to protect the cats, such as  you cant frighten the cats, cant chase the cats and etc. They will give you the house rules once you are seated). My friends and I gave it a nickname, the miaow miaow cafe. haha!

Exterior

The cafe is a single-storey bungalow house. (It is a bit hard to find becos it is hiding in housing area)

The menu of Cats Cafe. The cafe serves a variety of western food. The food tastes generally good. Since there are currently so many cafes in Johor Bahru, and most of them serve western food with very standard and similar taste. If others considered as average, then I would rate Cats Cafe’s food as slightly above average which means it tastes slightly better and different from the other “general & popular” cafes in Johor Bahru.

The price is on average side for cafes. When I first saw the price for platters i was shocked but the portion of the platter is for 3 to 4 servings.

 

IMG_20151110_133238_副本

This is their Signature Tokyo Chicken Chop. I like the sauce, it is sweet but not too sweet, match just well with the grilled chicken chop and my favourite, mashed potato! (apparently something different from the chicken chop offered in other cafes, provided you love sweet stuff).

老巴刹炒粿@笨珍 Fried Carrot Cake@ Pontian

IMG_20150916_185935

My favourite char kuey stall. The stall was a trishaw ^^

The char kuey is fried with sweet dark soya sauce, dried radish and some spring onion, the taste is salty and sweet!

I always like to ask the boss to put more dark soya sauce, so it tastes sweeter with slightly burnt flavour, nom nom~

我最爱的炒粿!! 从小吃到大,很有古早味,滋味非常美好!

黑的甜酱油,菜脯和些些青葱,香咸甜!每次去都会跟老板说,炒黑一点,这样会比较甜一点点。 又咸又甜又香,又有一点焦焦的,简直就是完美组合!赞!

地点是在笨珍老巴刹 (只在晚上开哦!)

Location: Pontian Old Pasar-  Jalan Bakek Jaya 2, Pontian, Johor. (open at night only)

life@sept15

达啦!一眨眼 blink blink, 哇, 九月过了一半了!

钱不够用。钱不是万能,但是没钱却是万万不能!

什么让我压力大叻,没钱让我压力很大啦。。 。

———————–

D君离开了,又被调派去另一个城市了。原来时间就是过得那么快的。wanwan说他离开了也好。想想也对,唉。。

然后经HS呢,又认识了yk…然后世界那么小,yk又是俺家豆腐卜的朋友哦。。很妙厚。。。但是,我真的有努力地要试试,但是。。。应该是我的问题吧,感觉不能勉强自己。竟然又重施故技,实施消失策略。 好啦,没有啦,还是偶尔会回复啦,久久一下酱啦。。。我真的很努力努力啦。。。不过,豆腐卜说的很对,不适合我呐,我是有听进去的。

其实我也在想,既然要我努力地去适应配合,感觉有点勉强,就。。。唉。。咯。。。

我想说呢,大概我跟D字开头的比较有缘。 之前不是说很惊讶某某突然结婚了吗,就是因为突然把别人肚子搞大了。但是,话说,他还是会对我说类似意思,要孩子不要娘的话,一直处于分居状态的样子。那可怎么办,谁叫你去搞大别人的肚子 , 唉。。。

———————

俺的爱wanwan要结婚了,爱情长跑十年,终于结成正果!耶!!!

但是这个月,荷包破洞了 T_T

除了红包大,还有请吃饭。

还有自己买了不多东西,但是价钱。。。然后又还有其他喜酒。。我已经透支了,快疯了!omg! 怎么就没人塞点钱给我啊 T_T (垂头丧气)totally没安全感的生活啊。

请给我钱吧~~~

我看我是结不成婚了,我只好爱钱了 T_T

———————

对了,这几天狂发恶梦,梦里哭到我半夜惊醒。接着睡,又梦到继续哭。

真的是疯了

到底是哭毛

慢跌。不露。 没重点

一个对的人,会让你充满自信与正面思想。

如果你身边的人让你觉得正好相反,那不如放手。

D: Now we r both jahat.

B: ……. (OS: we r both sinner.) -_-”  (my eyes just keep looking at the cartier ring that i always want to have,but still dun have T^T)

我们每个人都有罪,犯下不同的罪。

有几个不离不弃的女人们,真是我几世修来的。什么都能说,不会唾弃鄙视我。还会帮我担心,顺便鸟我两下。都不知道我几感动 (哭,好像抱抱你们)

虽然会酸小我,但是我稀饭啊~ 你们永远最好~~~~~ (曾几何时,我变得这么肉麻)

对你爱爱爱不完~ ❤

(请原谅我的废,废一下能抒发情绪)

人生废废不无聊。

Palsaik Koean BBQ 八色烤肉

Korean BBQ is very popular in JB and there are like hundreds shops around.

Everybody just loves Korean BBQ, especially meat lovers!

There is a relatively new Korean BBQ in town- Palsaik Korean BBQ (八色烤肉). The name of the restaurant directly points out that they offer  eight colours of pork belly for BBQ! The eight colours/flavours ranged from non-spicy to very spicy one. I personally prefer the herb one as the meat is with some light but nice aroma. The meat is fresh, vegetable is fresh, but there are not many choices on the menu as compared to other Korean BBQ restaurants around the area. The restaurant looks very clean and kind of spacious. The presentation of the food is very attractive. The food priced moderately higher than surrounding Korean BBQ restaurants, however it becomes very crowded and reservation is strongly suggested during friday and saturday nights.

We ordered the premium set of Korean BBQ which costs about RM 200++. It was shared by 4 people and it was just nice (becos we have two big eaters!)

IMG_20150711_194743_副本

Each table is compulsory to order at least for a set. Other than the sets, the choices for side dishes are very little, less than 10 items i think (mainly rice, noodles, porridge or some mushrooms).There are three types of sets.

  1. 3 colours (for 2 persons)
  2. 8 colours (for 3-4 persons)
  3. premium set (for 3-4 persons)

(photo taken from other place)

For the 3 colours, there is an option to choose either kimchi or grilled deodeok while grilled deodeok is served with every premium set ( there are only 4 pcs of deodeok for premium set, which means each person will get one only). What is deodeok? It is also called Lanceolate. is a flowering plant. It originates in East Asia. It is a variety of bonnet bellflower. The roots are used in Korean cuisine. In Chinese, it is called 沙参. Give it a try, it is abit crunchy and tasty.

IMG_20150711_195743_副本

I love their vegetables, they were so fresh. They provide different varieties of salad leaves to wrap the grilled pork belly such as red and green coral lettuce, romaine lettuce and mint leaves. There are also raw garlic, green chili and enoki mushroom.

别是一番滋味在心头@kkll

是离愁,别是一番滋味在心头。
(无法解释这种滋味,很复杂的那一种)

很舍不得,只是想那样一直靠在一起抱在一起就好。我也是觉得很奇怪,真的怪怪的。
呃。。。success rate 0% 的fate -_-” ( 很妙,竟然有这种fate) 可是感觉上只要你在身边就很好了,不需要做些什么就很足够。 (姐是有啥病 T_T 我有病是吧,神经病。因为连自己都无法解释 )

可是,你是不是很不习惯?很多年没见,我好像变成另一个人了,好像不再可爱不再单纯简单很市侩?(呵呵!其实是想回去自己觉得自己720○的不似那个自己。虽然常常还是一样傻,我应该是人格分裂出来的另一个人) 感觉比脱胎换骨还厉害。

You only live once. 有一个人看到了跟我说,yes, we do only live once. No second life. “其实它就serve as reminder,当我觉得幸苦痛苦的时候,看到就会跟自己说搞不好下一分钟就不在了,现在还在就要💪。那you only live once有提醒到你还有什么想做却还没做的事吗?哈哈!

你很温柔,为什么我不记得你是那么温柔体贴的人?几温暖两下~还是我变成强势女了,特别能衬托出你那么温柔?哈哈!

现实中并没有ted。
(其实我根本没看过ted的电影,只知道它是女主角开心伤心难过时,不会离开一定陪伴在侧的熊) 谁不希望有个人永远都在。

Ten years.
喔 第一次我 說愛你的時候
呼吸難過 心不停地顫抖
喔 第一次我 牽起你的雙手
失去方向 不知該往哪兒走
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
今晚要去见很久很久不见的朋友,我想我已经练到脸皮超厚到子弹都打不进了,我应该不知道尴尬为何物,哈哈! (连自己都佩服自己)。 有点期待,但是不确定是不是会有话题聊,拜托希望他们不要白目聊到我不想听的话题哟!因为姐怕会即时脸僵,还要硬硬假笑。可是我的心会揪很多下,很可怜的。
(圆滑姐 :p)
————————————————–

散場的擁抱 我還在燃燒
但妳心裡的浪潮 拒絕讓我看到
妳煎熬 不肯定什麼是最想要
愛才又像樂園又像監牢

明明面前是答案 卻撕掉 不要

在陷得太深的海底
我也只剩下我自己 能依靠

7月15拜六早晨~

起个清早,滑滑手机。看到个塔罗牌测验for 下半年运程就随便玩玩。其实有没有觉得random有时候就很准?

其他跳过,它说我感情运不佳,可能会被有对象的人告白,或是被要求当小三,容易对情感价值观扭曲。

well well….准!就昨天嘛,就发生有人告白,被要求当小三的事。(唉,俺是小三命吗?)

此人表露心意已多次,昨天非常坦白露骨的告白。男人嘛,有钱有权就爱作怪。拜托,老婆我也认识的好不好,大的孩子满月我也有到的好不好? 拜托,我已经拒绝n 次了好不好,不要不死心好不好?determination不是用在这种地方的好不好?男人嘛,就是有病! 越得不到越想得到,你得不到就是得不到,接受现实吧。 还说通常结了婚的女人都会选择原谅的 -_-” 是啦,因为女人都傻的嘛。就算你老婆可以原谅你,继续爱你,你不觉得她会很痛吗。我有我的原则的厚,所以你就接受现实吧! 反正就不可能!不要再用金钱啦,还是照顾我之类的话来利诱我了,虽然我真的对BMW虎视眈眈。不要跟我说还记得我们多年前第一次见面,我穿什么我说了什么,我自己都不记得了。虽然我爱钱,可是不是这种钱!我爱,我要,我会自己去赚!(虽然会很辛苦)。不要说什么照顾我,我有爱我的家人和朋友们,我一个人也活的好好的,累的时候,他们会让我依靠。

男人们,听清楚了!

人生,不是你想得到什么,你就能得到所有!

(真是的,怎么越说越生气)知道这个故事前段的人,应该就懂我在说谁嘛。。。不要告诉别人哦,等下一发不可收拾,给我麻烦。俺讨厌麻烦。

唉,俺真的是小三命吗? (晕倒)

是不是已经到了这个时候,我应该就随便接受个人做我男友吧,好摆脱这种被人家要求做小三的命叻?

我。。也很哀怨好不好,都还没等到对的人。

(明明我去ktv已经被禁止唱“错的人”了,只能唱“对的人”.对的人还不来噢?)真的要骂 F***了咯!
