wiki rox!

I am trully amazed at what we can find in wiki..

Casual relationship (FUBU)

Ah Beng
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ah Beng is a term commonly given to a member of a group of young Chinese men in Southeast Asia, particularly Singapore and Malaysia. These Chinese men, whose age ranging from their early teens to late 20s, usually centralise in the busier and more developed cities in the region, but are usually seen as originating from smaller or more rural towns. Ah bengs typically speak local slang, which is Hokkien or Cantonese mixed with English and Malay, such as Manglish or Singlish. They are often stereotypically portrayed to be anti-intellectual, superficial and materialistic and shallow. These values often lead to a lack of culture or indulgence in criminal activity or being involved in brawling or arguing out of disagreements with other people. Ah bengs are also sometimes associated with extensively-modified or zhng-ed cars, [1] and are stereotypically seen as being excessively flashy and show-offs. Ah Beng commonly are seen in gaudy patterned shirts, loafers without socks, gold jade rings and gold often counterfeit Rolexes .
The term 'Ah Beng' is also sometimes used to describe young Chinese men in Southeast Asia who cannot speak fluent English and/or have graduated from the secular Chinese education system of the region.
In Malaysia, the term 'Ah Beng' usually refers to males who have unusual styles and tastes. And the term 'lala-zai' refers to males involved in stereotypical gangster activity or fashion such as the dyeing of hair.

Can't decide on my hair.... Black? Long? Curly? Short? Brown?

pressure = rain = against the flow..

Ok Ok. Everything will be okay.

That's the beginning of the chapters of very famous - Sophie Kinsella's series. My very first series book that I have all the collection :) and actually reading them.

I've read all already - now I'm back at the book of the sister :)

I think about meeting my Luke Brandon. Every gal have their fantasy dude.. I have a confession to make...

Long distance isn't easy ... Yes. yes. i know some of you would be shouting there "SEE? I told you so!" Firstly, I salute to all of you who are in long distance... wow!

Ok. Pressure? Yes. It's not exactly the simple thing "I love you"... what i'm building is a foundation - to be quite honest... I've not even held his hands @_@... (a lot of you would go "OHhh ohh~~") What I'm trying to say is that... maybe things would be different if we were next to each other... as much as the emotional / mental chemistry that we have.. Physical chemistry needs to be part of it. I guess these tough times are just bumps in every single relationship - well.. Jolene Loh - Buckle up! There would be more bumps than ever... (hello? 77 more days only)

You maybe laughing reading this... or saying "WHAT THE HELL IS SHE TALKING ABOUT?" or.. no time... this is tooo deep. THAT's how i feel... funny, confused, too deep in thought... is this what they say about love? mmm...... suddenly remembered what my fortune teller said "Go with the flow ~~ You always try to swim against the current all the time - that's why you find life HARD!"

Was reading my old blog entries... i find myself amazed with what i wrote.. haha guess this is the motto of the week "sunshine will come after the rain!"... go with the flow ~~~

I'm an addict!

I'll talk a little bit about addiction today.

We all love wiki for a reason : the Unified view or a good reference when we need some definition... (that's addiction too)

Addiction was a term used to describe a devotion, attachment, dedication, inclination, etc. Nowadays, however, the term addiction is used to describe a recurring compulsion by an individual to engage in some specific activity, despite harmful consequences to the individual's health, mental state or social life.

I often get this "Do you smoke?"... some people even offered me ~ here u go.. and seeing their eyes grow big when i said "I Don't smoke" is quite funny~ I have friends who are addicted to smoking until they have collection... So is this a bad addiction?

Was having breakfast with momz this morning - Coffee was her addiction she mentioned shyly.. She said something about it's all about mentality - one of my aunt is addicted to these pills she takes to avoid car-sick. But when my mom sat with her and kept her occupied - she kinda forgot to take the pill @_@

Last week, Rudy & JJ went missing.. duno what happened - somehow.. it was like a week without his trademark laugh... Am I addicted?

So I wonder... is there such thing as bad addiction? is there such thing as good addiction?

Guess what I'm addicted to... I'm addicted to Mr. J's voice... Called him 4 times yesterday ^_^

Word selection

The wonders of word selection...

Like i previously mentioned... I now attend a part time interest, during class ... lecturer drew three lumps...

"What do you guys think this means?"

A lot of us laughed... "Cowboy hat, Mountains, Bird-eye view of Elephant, Banana, etc"
None of us said what we laughed about...

He started to say that in many cases, our brain would consider other influences - Environment, Circumstances, People... and we tend to choose what we would "re-word" what is appropriate.

On the other side of the world, we have people who would just say anything at all... without thinking. Some people even loves to speak down to other people just to make themselves feel good. Some even to the extend just to piss someone off...

Words are just words, it can be a powerful tool how we use it. - Jolene Loh

You stare at the blank wall, your heart aches, you walking blindly - dunno where you're heading to... you just want to walk up to the special person in your life... and get that special hug.. and hope to hear "Everything will be okay"...

Professionally... top 10 do's and don'ts of depression

1. Don't try to manage it on your own. Ever.
2. Don't isolate yourself. (Doing so guarantees a bad case of "stinkin' thinkin'!")
3. Don't assume it's just your life's circumstances. (It can easily be a chemical imbalance in your brain combined with circumstances.)
4. Don't listen to angry, dark, upsetting, unsettling music. Ever. (It is counter-productive. It feeds depression... feeds it all those things that are not healthy for you: angst, anxiety, fear, anger, rage, melencholy...)
5. Don't eat unhealthy. Ever. (Unhealthy, a.k.a. junk food, fast food, prepackaged food.)

6. Do seek out "good friends". (The internet is not a replacement for some good old face-to-face with a close friend, compadre, or loving significant other.) Don't create MORE problems for yourself by chosing someone who feeds the monster.)
7. Do seek (professional) help if you're DWD and it's obviously more than just the occassional "blues".
8. Eat healthier! (More greens. Less burgers and fries. Healthier body, healthier mind.)
9. Listen to instrumental music with upbeat tempo and rhythm.
10. Watch a lot of comedy. Belly laugh! (Laughter really is the best medicine.)

Jolene's Top 3 resolution:
1. Don't think of food as sex.
2. Don't resort to alcohol or drugs.
3. Do take Tiramisu. (Think happy food) or strawberry or chawan-mushi or salmon~~ yumz ^__^

Worry is a misuse of imagination - that is soooo true... my word of the month!

Mr. J - Happy 2monthisary~

Went to KL Bird Park recently - coz of one of my Upcoming Charity Event - BIRD QUEST FAMILY HUNT 2008 (if you are interested to contribute in any ways - let me know!)

Anyways... in KL Bird Park - was planning some treasure hunt - and saw the "NURSERY" awww...
keke.. did you notice one chic was looking at the camera? cute huh?

On March 23, 2008 - our youngest member in our club joined us ~ Welcome "Ming Xuan"!

That night I drove with this question "Would you rather be the father or the mother?"

Rishy said "Father ... for obvious physical reasons" @_@?

Then attended my mom's good friend's Grandson's Baptism -- Cute Francis (son of Little Kev)

Yup. They didn't bathe the whole baby - and being me (Short Term Memory) - I forgot to ask whether the water was warm or not... my bad..

Check out his cake~~ aweesome - it has a hand-made crown & baby boots!

Don't ask me why I have this entry --- AND NO.. I'm not pregnant!

my little manja

Funny that I've never blogged about my cat ~

Grab your pillow, and I'll tell you the story.

3 years was almost Christmas, that I've suddenly made my mind about ADOPTING a cat. We all know the CONSTANT radio ads of SPCA did affect some people (ME).

Driving with full excitement and guilt (coz mumz didn't agree) to SPCA, it was something that I told myself to do before my trip. Was there "window shopping"... and there and then.. I saw this cage with 3 kittens "awwwww"...

"Tu kitten comel ke?"
"Yes yes.. very cute"
"Well.. let me open the cage for u"

Soon enof.. 1 super hyper active spring out... *no.. too hyper*
White one came walking out.. like super model... *mmm female...*
1 came out straight to my leg... and start manja-ing *heart-melt!!*

I fell in love with him immediately ~~ wanted to take him home - but I still need to "discuss" with mumz...

"Just to let you know... these cages are to be put to sleep tomorrow.. we are running out of spaces..."
"WHAT? you mean.. omgg..." *speechless.. heart beat went up*
"but.. i have a holiday trip to go... can I pick him up like next week?"
"Unfortunately, you have to take him with you today..."

thanks to my beautiful eyes .... my momz agreed... she loves him so much now... hehe
Until today... he's still doing the Manja-ing at my leg whenever I come home...
