Don't forget to just drop by
If you ever stray afar
there is always Angelstar :)

The much awaited movie...erm...correction, MY much awaited Disney animation movie is finally out!!!
Hehe....I was out the week of its release but fret not, I finally watched it last weekend!! YEAY!
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Don't worry, I won't be doing a full-length review here....you can check out my Movie Bugz blog for that;)
*Furthermore, I want no spoilers for those who have not watched the movie yet:p

As a Disney fan, you will not expect much bad criticsms from me. However, that being said, it doesn't mean that I will provide such a biased opinion:p
Anyway, I must say...it was really cool...hehe, funny!
Another thing...it was a little gross come to think of it...especially with those mass of rats scampering all around...YIKES!!
I couldn't stand that:p

A gist of the storyline; there is this rat who was different from the others...he had an exquisite culinary skill and also taste.He is definitely not just ANY rat that will eat ANYTHING...haha, and he dreams of becoming a chef...a dream he harboured all his life and he spent his time admiring his idol, the famous French Chef Gusteau who had a restaurant in the world's romantic city, Paris.
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Gusteau died, and in a twist, Remy(the main character...the extraordinary rat) found himself in Paris and soon on his way to becoming a chef through the hands of Linguini, a kitchen boy who just wanted a job.

Okay, enough said...or else you guys will say I spoil it for you:p
The thing about this movie is this; the animation and 3D graphics...quite realistic...
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
You can even see those hairs on the rats.....eeeewwwssss.....
I never did liked rodents and I wouldn't say it changed much even after a Disney movie:p
But hey, it was entertaining and the graphics and animations were kinda real.....
I enjoyed the movie...although I must say, it wouldn't really be that suitable for young kids...the meaning and the experience depicted in the movie may be too complex for a kiddy's story:p

For full details and more dissection into the movie, gotta check my Movie Bugz;)

Monday,Kulim and...

Now that the skies are clearer (why NOT earlier??? rain when I am at work or something....:(
I gotta get myself out of the office and drive to Kulim.....SIGHS...BIG SIGH!

Monday = :(
Monday + Kulim = :((
Monday+ Kulim ++ RAIN = WUAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
(shakes head vigorously....not good to bang head on the wall...may lead to possibility of brain damage:p )


This morning was getting ready to go to KM; the dreaded first day of the week (or was it second:p)....only to be greeted by a heavy shower out there!!
I was thinking; hey, no biggie, just drive through the rain real slow and it will be fine....
BUT NO......
the minute I exited the main gate of the condo, the rain was pattering so hard on my screen that I could barely see and also, it was really hard on the screen that it felt like it was gonna break the screen!!
And there were so much water everywhere and the wind felt so strong...(not exaggerating although I was in the car!!)
Most of the cars slowed down or turned on their hazard lights and stopped by the roadside...imagine that even cars were freaked out by the rain, I wonder about motorcyclists....
I was debating with myself until I finally decided to turn back to my place to wait for the rain to subside....
It was too scary to drive out there...and imagine the long drive...the open space across the bridge....the dark roads of the highway....*shivers* ( I was slightly phobic of rainy days when I drive to KM coz there was this time my car almost spun near the roundabout about 2 years ago:(
Decided to work from PG office first; and will have to head over to KM office later....
Even my boss is late today!!!

I love the rain...but WHY oh WHY....Mondays??? KM???
Bother.......thanks for "cheering" those Monday blues.....sighs...BIG BIG BIG SIGH!!!

It's Friday again!!!

Gosh...how fast time flies when you are busy...
I need to really slow down a little...but no....schedule times are tight!!
And I only have a pair of hands, a pair of eyes and me, I am only 1 human being!!
I only have 24 hours.....and and and........

Whatever, am still glad it's finally Friday again!!
Thank God it's Friday:D

Coma Screen

The night before (Wednesday night I think), I got home and found that my laptop was kinda overheated....really hot...and I meant steaming/boiling hot type!
Then when I turned it on...the screen didn't show anything....but you know the processor is running!!

Sighs...I left it to cool overnight and still to my dismay, the next morning was the same, the screen just wouldn't show me anything....sighs....I packed and went off to work and had to connect to external monitor to get on with my work while waiting for the service center to commence with their day.
Anyway, I got the LCD changed and it's now working again.....
Hmmmm...wonder when's my turn to change the whole thing:p

Happy Birthday to Big Jie!!

As mentioned, today is my Da Jie's birthday!!!
Haha...I think there's a couple more friends celebrating their birthday today....but dedication goes to Big Sis first!!
We celebrated with her since Wed and she has had her calendars lined up with invitations and celebrations with her other friends...so, we jee muis from work managed to squeeze in a be-earlieth celebration:p

She's out on leave dy today.....but we wish you many many happy returns of the day and lots of hugs and kisses from all of us:D

Hope you enjoyed the dinner last night....haha:D

P.S: This was an old photo; she just layered and straightened her hair last night:p

Gathering with Jee Mui

I had a fun time with jee mui's last night...haha, and also the guys lar...but dunno whether I should refer to them as heng tais...LOLz....
I will post some pics up soon, once I get around to uploading them; didn't take too much pic as I should have...must have been too tired after work, so passive:p
All in all, I do miss these gatherings and it's been some time since I hung out with them...haha, they are a hilarious lot!:D

I also miss my KL or Kepong gang a lot ler....and also the MMU jee mui/siao link...haha...and are you still here, Bitch Club President (which I never joined)? Haha...it was still fun listening to you guys....:D


This morning there was a downpour when I was in the midst of preparing to go to work.....
Anyway, it was still drizzling when I got into my car to drive and funny how when I revved up the engine, guess what song came on?

UMBRELLA by Rihanna....hahaha......guess God is trying to remind me to get that umbrella down from the car and into the office so that I don't drench myself after work!
Haha....I got the message...loud and clear....:D
Umbrella...a.a.a.a......Under my umbrella...ella ella ella....:p


I am so sleepy ar this morning!!!
But weird thing is I didn't really sleep well either last night:(

Sighs, slight deviation from my usual bedtime due to me being obstinate to finish that book I was reading ....ahhhh, back to those good ol' childhood days when I would never put down a book for anything (adamant to finish off everything the minute I started:p)
Anyway, I was also out last night with my jee muis gang for a birthday celebration and by the time I got back, just wanted to catch up on my book and then it was getting to the climax...so....haha, you knw the rest:p

Now, I suffer the consequences....so SLEEPY!!!
Hope I don't doze off...I still have this file to stare at....all the wiring, bla bla bla....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Darndest things

I just attended my staff meeting and they were updating on the upcoming teambuilding...
It's gonna be hiking and after the organizer finished presenting, it was time for Q&A and one of the questions was so funny!
They included the photo session in the agenda; you know, after all the activities and such...
And it so happens that they were supposed to bring additional change of clothes as they will be sweating and getting themselves messed up...
So this funny guy asked, "What kind of attire is expected for the photo session?"
The room roared with laughter and my naughty boss actually answered; trying to be solemn at the same time(keeping a straight face and holding back his laughter)
"Well, formal....guys should bring along suits and ties and ladies, do bring along an evening gown"....

And at the end, the organizer reminded everyone to be punctual and also to bring the items required and my boss had to add in, "And remember your suits and gowns for the photo session!"
Hahaa....and who says only Kids say the darndest things?;p

50 years of glory

Woww....I didn't realize that it has been 50 years since my country's independence!
(Okay, I am not that jakun:p)

But it was really a nice number, ain't it?
50 years of independence; freedom from foreign rule!
Politics is often or not a topic of interest or to be avoided; as it is sensitive.
But nevertheless, you can never deny your own roots :)
Bak kata pepatah; Di mana bumi dipijak, di situ langit dijunjung
(not bad ler; still remember my Malay phrases pretty well:)

Being born a Malaysian, I myself have grown to be familiar and used to the lifestyle in the country that sometimes we ourselves tend to take things for granted.
And sometimes, we may find ourselves gettting bored of life here and wishing that you were somewhere else; "The grass is always greener on the other side"
However, whenever I travel out of the country, I start to see and experience different cultures and sometimes, I just feel that I want to be back in Malaysia, where my home is :)
Nothing beats home, really....Home Sweet Home....

Malaysia may not be the greatest country on earth, but hey, it is pretty much its own paradise as well, and at least, we never had to worry about earthquakes, typhoons, tornadoes, cyclones, volcanoes, frostbites, etc.
Of course, we recently had the tsunami threat....:p
But apart from all that, Malaysia is like the safe zone to live in due to the strategic geographical location...okay, I am not going into geography lessons...

Haha...just being patriotic huh?
I am working on a departmental communication/PR email for the Merdeka Day party and also the knowledge sharing....fun :D

Where is Angelstar?

Whoa.....I was surprised by the responses from all my friends out there; my blog's readers who bombarded me with questions when I finally posted my blog after my MIA for a week!!!
It was really touching lar....I didn't realize that I had regulars to my blogs...am really happy and thankful to you guys lar...BIG HUG!!!:D

And too many questions on where I went, bla bla bla....hahaha......felt like a celebrity pula...(Cheh, perasan.....LaydieBug's favourite phrase...still remember gal?)

Okay, to answer all questions and to avoid repetition, I was out for vacation (will update, so be patient, sabar lar....must be more mysterious mar)
Then I was sick....yeah, weakling me!
I was down with a very high fever and also a serious bout of food poisoning and I was like, couldn't really get up much for 3-4 days.
I just felt tired on the first day and didn't suspect the hint of fever; only slept like the whole day (you know me, I only sleep at night, I am really a light sleeper and I cannot take afternoon naps else I will face a sheep counting night:p)
I was sleeping and was awakened by very hot temperature; mind you, my room was closed without the fan on and the windows were closed as well.
I was having a very high fever; burning temperature and I hastened to swallow the Paracetamol pills and proceeded for a quick shower. And then acute stomach pains at night....went to the doctor twice; and still no improvement.
By the 3rd day, proceeded to hospital for check up; didn't want admission so was put on medication looor....
And slowly recovering ....
Don't worry, I am fine right now.....

At the same time, my granny was also hospitalized due to her health problems as well; mummy and daddy were already really worried about gran....and then me.....
But I am really fine now; still on medication...to complete:)

But I am really thankful for all the hi's and how-are-yous and also where-on-earth-have-you-been....hahaha....
My absence is felt....haha, feel really cared and loved....
Okay okay, back to the ground, float too much dy:p

But thanks to y'all!!~

Happy Day

Somehow everyone was in a happy mood yesterday; happy happy which actually reduced a lot of stress and stiffness at work:D
Happy happy day! :)

But I must be reminded I have a list of stuffs to work on......sighs....

Freaky Housemates

Life really drives you crazy sometimes....
You get tonnes of stuffs to work on and on your head for the day at your workplace; driven by all the deadlines and also the stress and pressure from co-workers and having to deal with everyone and everything and then looking forward for a peaceful end and relaxation back at home once you step out of the office.
For some yes, we do get that but for me, sighs, I need to face the wrath of meeting my housemates aka people who stay under the same roof as me but not of family relation.
I am at a loss of words; I don't really know how to describe anymore....
One is really extremist and kinda self-inclined; prefers everything to be done her way and exerts her authority (sometimes) as the anchor tenant of the house...perhaps like most people say, the kiasunism exhibit.
The other; okay, she started off okay, nice...and then slowly became moody and don't really care about stuffs around anymore.

Remember the cleanliness issue I mentioned earlier?
You know, Housemate #1 stuck a piece of paper on the kitchen window and proposed that we start a sweeping-the-house schedule, said she noticed that the floor was rather dusty and that she has been sweeping every Mon and Wed and that we ought to do the same.
I was the ONE who mentioned that and I was the ONE who sent out the email and now she made it seem like she's the noble one who started to realize things are getting out of hand and need to get a grip on it???
Wow....pretentious and such an artificial snob!!!
And this is not the first time she has done this; claiming undue credit to herself...(Sticks out tongue:p)

The 2nd one; okay, she is also another snob recently....I know you have a great bf who drives a nice car and who takes good care of you but that's no reason to think that you are such a great person and that everyone needs to bow to your needs.
First, the bathroom; there's hair and they don't clear it after their shower....
Recently she has been asking for the card access to the carpark (FYI, each condo unit is allocated a carpark and also a card to permit access to the condo premises; usual stuff as in all high-rise residential areas).
Housemate#1 doesn't drive; so she has given me the card and the parking space. I gotta pay her for that and also signed an agreement and I made her promise that I will not rotate nor give that car park under any circumstance which makes sense since I moved in first.
Housemate#2 requested for the card access recently because the security guards have been tightly scrutinizing the cars entering the premises; of course I can't give it to her; I need to go in and out for work.
Okay, then I was out last week and she called me; asking whether she can park her car in my place because she needs to travel home.
So much more stories...suffice to say that it is not really a pleasant stay....

With my work stress and such uptight situation at home.....how can I achieve a relaxed state after a long day at work? :-(


I just got back to my office today and wowwwww, I am greeted by a massive torrent of emails in my inbox!!!
Seriously, I was really stressed to see all of them and me jotting down the number of items I need to work on and follow up; sighsssss
Sometimes you do love vacations but at times, you do feel that daily routine should not deviate too much:p
There's so much to do and start and wow, I have been assigned tonnes of work....guess, I'll need to take a deep breath...and back to work!!!

I am back!!

I am back; been away for a while....vacation, out of office...sorry for the MIA from blog:p
More update soon;)

Not a great day

Sighs...today doesn't seem to be so great after all...
Actually it was supposed to start out great...haha, at least my allergies' not that bad anymore :)
But then stepping out of the house...everything seems to going the other way round....like a twist of Just My Luck:p

First the car incident...slow driving and blocking and my car was this close to being clamped by the barrier!
2nd, I was trying to update another blog of mine and took so much effort and time to write that post and then when I click Publish, BAM!! Siao Siao Blogger just didn't save it for me!!!
Oh my....what happened to the blogger's auto saving feature????!!!!
Nothing, no drafts....so down!!!!!

Then....somebody mistook that something happened and I was the cause when I was totally doing it right....work jargons:p
Great...and I am going down for lab tour later...let's hope and pray that I don't get sucked into a machine or eeee.......stop cursing myself!
It will be better....
What's that...Today will be better than yesterday...can I change it to afternoon will be better than this morning? :)

Fake Buns?

Now I am not sure about the authenticity of this piece of news but a friend has forwarded this to me and it seems that there are even bogus buns out there!!
Due to certain policy issue...haha, I will not reveal the name of the country or anything or else I may be liable for defamation charges.

Anyway, suffice to say that there has been way lots of similar fake items which have been sprouting or rumoured to originate from this place.

This is the latest; in one of the recordings of this bun manufacturing factory, they were found to use waste paper and cardboard; which made up about 60 per cent of the bao and mixing it with the fatty meat to produce what they call as the "bao zi".
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
How did they manage to capture this?
It was actually done by the reporters of the particular broadcast corporation in line with the current scare of their continuous discoveries of bizarre and dangerous stuffs ranging from toxic toothpaste and toys painted with lead-based paints!!

This was done in their desperate efforts to cut down cost; and the owners didn't think the consumers could tell a difference:o
They used caustic soda; a toxic solvent used in the industry to soak the cardboard to produce that consistency taste and then mixed it with 40% of fatty meat and monosodium glutamate (MSG/flavour enhancer) before putting it on market shelves.
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
The owners do not consume their own baos!!
Woww....these crazy and inconsiderate folks!!

Don't they give you a new perspective of eating baos?

Morning Misters!

This morning I drove out of my condo heading to work and I was in line behind these 2 cars; a Getz and a Wira which was scanning their security access card.
(My condo provides us with a card...something like a Touch&Go type that you flash at the point and the bar will lift to allow your entry and exit from the premises).
Okay, so the first car, the Wira was so slow and he turned left.
Then the 2nd car, the Getz flashed his car and after his bar lifted, he drove out...and then it was my turn and when the bar lifted; I wanted to move out, but that Getz was just right there; undecided which direction he wanted to go; right or left (by right, it should be left since the right turn was against the traffic flow).
I had to flash the lights at him or else risk the barrier crashing on my car!!!

Oh bother!!!
Anyway, I proceeded with my left turn and drove until I caught up behind another car which was crawling; and I really mean crawling!!!
It was that first Wira.....
Oh my.....
I overtook him and drove on my way....

On the road to my company as well, I bumped into another car which was crawling and another bus which made the right signal and turn left....

Awwww....great start to a day....:(
Are they all awake??!!!
Hey...Good Morning Misters!! Please wake up when you are on the road!!!

Dusty Office...

Here I was talking about the haze in my previous post and stepping into the fully air-conditioned office area oughta provide some relief to the polluted and choking environment out there which is causing me breathing difficulty when I had to practically smother myself with a cloth hanky.
No no no....the office area where most of the cubicles are located has this hint of dust in the air....
Dusty and musty.....
I guess this carpet endowed area must not be vacuumed very often.....
Ugggghhhhhhhh........where can I get some fresh air....
Suddenly the fresh Swiss or Welsh mountain air sounds appealing.....

Knock knock*
Back to reality.....1,2,3.....back to hanky buddy...

Back to KL....

News...one of my friends here in Penang; or rather, my ex-housemate from uni who was also here working for about a year will be moving back to the city soon.
Yeah...am happy for her....we had a great talk yesterday and I was glad that we still had this bond and trust with each other...
Thanks gal, for asking me....I appreciate that you still trust me to share your doubts and stuffs with me:)

I guess she did manage to come up with a decision and it was to go for it, proud of you gal!;)
How did I find out?
I received a message from good ol' friend from KL...
Hey, your good friend is also packing her bags to come back down south dy...when's your turn?
I will, as soon as I get a BIG FAT offer as well....:D
Great....and we Kepong-ites will always welcome you back:)

Hehe...thanks...and I won't quote your name...otherwise, you will say I am like a paparazzi again:p

But 2 good things in a day....all courtesy of my good ol' pals in KL....which made me felt really cared and remembered all the time...
Despite the frustration yesterday at work, etc.....I must really say that you guys have made my day...

Thanks for making me feel cherished and remembered when I was feeling slightly blue....
And reminding me that I am still loved and on your minds....
THANK YOU...and I love this word, Kepong-ites...haha:D

Maybe it's time I should head back to my KL life...hehe...back to Civilization....
ERMmmm.....I meant, back to City Life...hehe:D

Haze is back...

It's there...I know it, it's just there....nobody wanted to believe me...
I can smell it; it's evil.....and that explains why I have been so restless these days....
Furthermore, my skin and nose are so sensitive that I can just sense and smell it....and it's really affecting me...it's so hard to breathe and my health's not really great either....skin allergies and nose allergies.....
I think I am not in my best looks; more like crappy looks these days....

Go AWAY.....you're no good....
Nobody's believing me...
They think I am out of my mind...
And then, yesterday the radio announced the API reading again....
See...I told you...it's definitely back and I HOPE, not for good!!
Everyone out there...take care...and believe me, there's haze out there

Barbie's Dance

Another movie review?
Haha...yaya...Angelstar just happen to be in the mood for movies these days instead of series:p
And this is another animation I watched:D

I have always loved Barbie...which girl doesn't anyway? It's always a beautiful dream and the sweetie and girly pastel pink colours are just enough to make you go ga ga when you were a little girl in ponies and pigtails.
It's inexplicable; just the way guys go wawa over Transformers:)

I always have been fond of Barbie animations (by Mattel) since it was shown on TV3; our local TV channel. I think I have watched more than a couple of them; from Swan Lake to Rapunzel,Nutcracker, Magic of Pegasus,Fairytopia,Princess and the Pauper and to add to my list is the recent 12 Dancing Princesses.
Actually not so recent anymore; it was last year's release

So sweet and I was enchanted once again by the magical world and also reminded of my love for fantasy and fairytales with all the promises of an always happy ending:)

Not too long and a simple adaptation of an old story; the 12 Dancing Princesses.
This animation was just so pinky and sweet; as in all Mattel's animations.
I just loved it; not much review about the movie before I bore everyone out of their wits:p
*dreams of fairylands*
