To commemorate Women’s Day 2007, The Body Shop and Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO) put together a ‘Walk of Love, Celebrating Women’ event at The Curve. For RM30, members of the public could sign up for a limited edition t-shirt, a 1-2km ‘walk of love’, dinner and an all-women concert. For working in the media, my [...]
…a talkative person. I know it doesn’t sound like a particularly exciting revelation, but truth be told, I was a little surprised to finally realise that about myself. Between all that talk about how women are the talkative species and even more talk about well, just anything, I guess it never crossed my mind that [...]
I can now officially say I’ve seen Gwen Stefani in concert, live and up close. Obviously, an interview and photoshoot with Gwen, Gavin Rossdale and Kingston would have been the ideal, but a million dollars ain’t gonna fall on my head when I walk out the door tomorrow morning and we do [...]
Of late, I have been struck by an urge to be more socially active. I look at people who fight passionately for a cause – Darfur, World Vision, Make Poverty History… the list is endless, really – and in fleeting moments, almost envy them.
I’m no Paris Hilton, but I live [...]
If there was one person who could have become a great actor and made the rest of us famous, it would have been Bec. Of the four of us siblings, she’s definitely the most melodramatic, by far the most intense, and she can actually act – I’ve seen her. Plus, being an actor would [...]
I got real lucky today – a bird pooped on me! The poop didn’t land right on me (thank God for that!), but just to the side of my chair. At least, the bulk of it did. The rest landed on my hair, black top and handbag. A couple of errant drops splashed onto my [...]
In a fit of I-don’t-know-what-to-call-it, I looked out the windows of my taxi one day last week as I was going into KL city centre, and I thought, if I spent three minutes for each person I saw and listened to their story… I don’t know how the sentence ends.
But on very rare occasions, [...]
As I type, I am watching The Sound of Music on Star Movies. I accidentally stumbled across it while channel surfing, and it completely floors me that a three-hour film made in 1965 keeps me stuck to my sofa in 2007, forsaking all other channels and a much-needed shower.
I must have seen this movie [...]
When I finally got a cab yesterday morning (the ten minutes I waited is the longest I’ve ever had to wait for a taxi at that particular bus stop/taxi stand), the cabbie, who had seen me try one other cab before him only to be turned down, gave me some advice:Offer cabbies an extra RM2 [...]
Some guy from UAE tried to pick me up today in a Coffee Bean queue. He insisted on paying for my food, even after I pointed out to him that I was married. I think it was an ego thing. And of course, he hadn’t noticed my engagement ring and wedding band before he started [...]
