She can still smile despite being sad

Hati terluka

Waktu kita bersama indahnya ku alami
Waktu kita berdua, janji2 bersemi
Apapun rintangan dapat kita harungi
Apapun persoalan dapat kita jalani
Namun semuanya berubah dalam sekelip mata

Hey stranger

I don't even know your name.

Married with 2 kids?

just in case you are reading this.

High cat is high

This is for you Megat

Oh, squiggly line in my eye fluid.
I see you there, lurking on the periphery of my vision.
But when I try to look at you, you scurry away.
Are you shy, squiggly line?
Why only when I ignore you do you return to the center of my eye?
Oh, squiggly line, it’s all right. You are forgiven.

-Stewie Griffin

Skin Care

Remember the good old days when all you need to do to get a good complexion is

cleanse - tone - moisturize

well.. that days are long gone my friends...

Go to any beauty counter, I mean literally... And you'll be bombarded by all the product that supposed to be NEEDed by you skin. We now have

cleaser - toner - eye serum - eye cream - serum - moisturizer - sunblock - mask - overnight peeling cream - night cream  

anti-aging skincare - whitening skincare - pore-minimizing skincare - even-skin tone skincare

And don't even get me started on cosmetic product. It used to be just a face powder and a lipstick and you are good to go.

now its primer,base,foundation,loose powder, eye shadow, eye liner.....

the list goes on.

All this while I thought I got good skin. Not prone to breakout. No allergy reaction so far. 
And all it took is one beauty consultant to point out how dull my skin look for me to run to the skin care counter.

Please excuse my vanity. I need to put on my hydration mask now.  

P/s: Please go ahead and tell me I'm gorgeous. You know you love me.

Perv on bus

My friend and I was on my way back from Pavilion. Took a bus from Kl Sentral to go home. An elderly man sat in front of us.

He was watching porn on his hand phone. I saw it through the reflection on the bus' mirror.

He also stop at the same stop as us. 

Have to wait until we saw where he was headed before walking home.

Free Treatment

Got a call from a beauty center regarding a free mini-facial. Thinking back, yes, I did filled up a form of some sort regarding this facial. I'm a contest-junkie, I join everything, irregardless of the prize. And I also like free stuff.

After setting up an appointment, went for the treatment.

upon entering, I was offered a strawberry(?) tea

Fountain at the waiting area. Rasa macam nak terkenc dengar bunyi-bunyian air itu

I guess upon seeing my body, the beauty therapist suggested that I go for the slimming treatment instead since it is also free for first trial.

HMMMmmmmmmmmm....... (I'm really not sure whether to be offended or thankfull??)

Anyway, decided to go for the slimming treatment. Here is the breakdown of the treatment:

  • Stand on a machine with a vibrating plate (ala yang macam Ogawa tu) for 10 minutes
  • Spot treatment with a machine to sculpt and suck the fat (said to have a 'vacumn' effect) for 20 minutes. Was told that it would be a little painful. Felt like being pinched.
  • Body wrap and hot blanket for 45 minutes

Then the sales talk come.

First they ask me if I want to add RM250++ for another treatment. I said no since I said I have sensitive skin so I want to wait and see if my skin react to the treatment. They said their product has no side-effect. I still tell them no.

Then they ask me if I want to add some serum for the spot treatment so that I can get double result. They have three serum, each cost rm68. When I said no, they said at least take one, its 'only' rm68. At this point, I started to feel harassed. The consultant went in and out of the consultation room, probably to consult with her boss about any other trick to push me into parting me with my money (or simply to mengumpat).

When I said no for the serum, they start pushing another trial treatment for RM49. I felt like walking out of that door. I said I do not bring enough money. They said not to worry, they have credit card facility. I told them I got no credit card, they said they have maybank right across the street, maybe I can withdraw money. I said NO again. Honestly bukan sebab aku kedekut, tapi sebab memang aku tak ada duit. And kalau aku ada duit pun,. aku tak akan habiskan untuk benda-benda yang macam ni.

Finally the consultant said that I could pay a deposit of RM10 and pay another RM39 at the next appointment. Doing anything to make her shut up, I paid for the RM10. She straight away took out a receipt book and said cash, right? Remember, all this is before the actual treatment. Why do they push their product up in my face even before I try the product? Why so dodgy? Don't they believe in their product? Or is it all about the money, money, money?

Anyway, onward with the treatment.

The first treatment was nice, but I do feel that anybody can do this at home. Just buy the Ogawa machine. Coz trust me, the people who are rich enough to go to this place, are rich enough to buy this machine.

The second treatment hurt like hell. Pinching sensation myarse! The pain was indescribable. All I can say is I rather put hot wax all over my face, put a piece of cloth on it, and pull out all my facial hair in one go.

The body wrap was ok I guess. I did manage to relax in the hot-blanket. But after the session finished, I did felt a little nauseous and almost throw up. The consultant said that is probably because I have an empty stomach before I came for the treatment. But honestly, who eat first before getting your whole body wrapped? Mesti muntah terus lah. Tak adanya setakat nak mual mual ni.

To wrapped(pun intended) it up, I think I just wasted RM10. Because no way in hell I'm going there again.

Oh... I forgot to tell you, I also receive a free gift:

terbaik lah dia punya lebam. besar tapak tangan aku.

For the comment

Spa Fiasco part 2

After successfully making an appointment. I waited for my first spa treatment with hati yang berdebar-debar.

Then, a day before the appointment, I received a call reminder reminding me of my treatment the next day.

Me: Hello.
BLSpa: Is this Nurul. I'm just reminding you that you have an appointment tomorrow for 2 person.
Me: Yes.
BLSPa: If one of you didn't show up, we consider your voucher no longer valid  and you would not be able to make another appointment.
Me:  Yes. (Kenapa macam rude sangat ayat dia ni)
BLSpa : If you are late also, we will consider your voucher no longer valid.
Me: Ok. (Yup, definitely rude)

After receiving that "friendly" reminder, I make sure I set my alarm clock that night.

The next day.......

*phone ring*
Me: Hello. 
BLSpa: Hi. This is BLSpa. I'm afraid I have to cancel your appointment for today. 
Me: *brain suddenly woke up* WHAT!!!!!! I've called you three times before. Now when I finally have an appointment, you cancelled it at the last minute. May I know why? 
BLSpa: One of our staff took emergency leave and one more is MC. 
Me: How is that my problem? 

(It's not that I'm not sympathetic, but after the rudeness I received yesterday, my tolerance toward them is weaning)

BLSpa : We can replace your appointment to another day. Is Friday ok for you?
Me: No, I'm working on that day

(Seriously, do they think that I don't have a life and all I do is laze around all day????)

BLSpa: So when are you free?
Me: Hold on *check planner*
BLSpa: When are you free?
BLSpa: Ok.
Me: I'm free next week Tuesday. But my voucher is expiring this Friday.
BLSpa: It's ok, we'll extend the voucher for you.

Ok. so another appointment has been set.

On the day of  the appointment, I came. Saw that the "spa" is empty. Further proving to me that the keep saying that they are fully booked story was a scam. For that one hour treatment, I received 30min body massage and 30min steam bath. To me, half hour body massage macam tak cukup je. Kaki kalau aku pergi urut pun sejam. Tak puas! And upon entering the spa also, I was greeted with dagger eyes. Mesti diorang sakit hati dengan aku kan?

P/s: I was right. Diorang urut pun macam nak tak nak je.

P/p/s: First time kena pakai thong. Segan gila. Tak nak dah body massage!!!!
