A Lazy Update

it’s my second post of the year and we are nearly entering the third week of 2012. dang! when i track back my blog statistic last year i calculated that i only blogged a total of 63 posts where January was the most with 12 posts and July was the most pathetic with only ONE post. kns. then i remember, in July alone i had been to four different places either on holidays or work. i hardly have time to blog. okay. hear. hear. excuses!!! but after subtracted the total into 12 months i did blogged around 5 posts a month. wasn’t that bad afterall. it’s like once a week with 1-2 more extra. and why do i mention all this statistic again? digressing much!! and now i’ve forgotten my purpose of this post. kns!!!

i have been so busy with work since the first day of working day this year. hardly breath. hence the lack of updates. even as i am composing this post right now i have to refer to my diary for what has happen the passed weeks. not much i can use here cos they are all work related T__T sigh!

hmmm…. what about a stupid incident? for the first time in being a hand phone owner of my life, i dropped my phone into the toilet bowl one day. yes. i dropped my Iphone4 into the toilet bowl after flushing!! my reflex action worked a little too slow that it already touched the bottom when i picked it up in that split second. i got panicked! the first thing that came into my mind – HAIRDRYER! but knowing the not so smart phone, how can i open it up without the specific screwdriver? *cry* the casing was all wet. thank goodness my casing was the type that covers the whole body. but still…. what about the headset and charging port? water still can go in from there right? i went frantically to the nearest phone service shop but kns the person hasnt report duty. went to another one. they dont fix Iphone. kns!!!! so i had to drive all the way out to town….. went to Apple Boulevard and another phone shop. they both adviced me not to open it up due to warranty whatnots and assured me that Iphone4 design is so tight that water wont go in easily. i had my doubt and feeling skeptical on them. ‘what if they are only lazy to layan me?’ i did try charging and using the earphones at home before i went to the shop. both worked perfectly. and that strengthened their notion even more. and fyi, my phone is fine till this very moment. so yay!! Conclusion is, Iphone4 has high tolerance to water (or i was lucky) so can go get one yourself. or the 4s :p

pheww… that was a long one.

i just finally received D&G’s actual wedding day album. it arrived in less than a week. i was impressed!! the colour for some photos were a bit off unlike the one that i see and satisfied with on my laptop. but i am very very happy with the outcome. fabulous! and i cannot wait to share their photos here.

on a more stressful side, the ceo finally added me on google talk. our co’s mode of communication. and we had a good chat. ‘good’ means i’ll have to say bye-bye to my carefree lifestyle and be prepare for sleepless nights for the rest of the year which has already started though. i can feel 100 tonnes of weighs on my shoulders right after our chats. sigh! and i know my ‘2011 holiyear’ will finally lead me to this. this exaggerating expectation is the price i have to pay. so this year is a year of redemption and to make up of all lose time. #challengeaccepted

met up with girl friends last week end. and for once, i felt so left behind in errr…. the relationship department. my girls are either married, have kids or expecting baby. well, suck it up buttercup!! it’s your choice!! me!!! T__T so i’ll be meeting them again next week on CNY. yay!! and talking bout that, i was planning to drive back but since the ferry is full and i have no companion, i might as well wait list for flight instead. its the same thing.

owh, i have finally sold my Nikkor 18-105mm f3.5 dx lens to a friend. thought of using the money to top up for a new lens but i am still torn between a new lens Nikkor 85mm f1.8 or a canon G12. haihh…. how ah??!

ok, a photo to end this post.

nexus karambunai 🙂

I didnt know bout the existence of this photo until now. must be my sister’s creative work while i was having my massage at the Massage Hut. i was browsing through my album to scout for a photo to be uploaded here and this one made the cut. because it reminds me of a wonderful relaxing and pampered time enjoyed with people i love and sponsored by people who love me 🙂

btw, i am on twitter most of the time nowadays. and instagram. this photo social network is addictive i tell you. tell me if you are on in and add me @leanoval ok.

be blessed, friends!

before Christmas!!! YahooOO!!!

i’ll be driving ALONE >.< back to Lawas this afternoon. Been asking the students or anyone going back to Lawas if they wanna join me. But till this very moment, no respond at all. I guess they all have their own ways already T___T sigh~~ THREE FREAKING HOURS lerrr…..

but anyway, a quick update before i indulge fully to the festive final preparation (which i volunteered to offer the easiest contribution – to sponsor drinks beverages!!! LOL)

done with my assignment to capture my friend's wedding last week. which was my one and only wedding of the year. was on my heels all day. yes i am that vain!! must live up to my status as 'the photog in heels' and 'glamorous photog' (i know i perasan here but that’s what they say lerrr….. they said ‘wah, your photographer so glamor wan? -__-” so i’ll just take it as a compliment la, can?) after the event my feet sore like they were not gonna make it to press on the accelerator when driving home. and the next morning, my right arm also sore and ached due to lugging my heavy gears. but all were good because I LOVE MY FREE LANCE JOB as much as i love my day job!!! 🙂

my excitement grows day by day as the days passed. in four more days, i’ll be on top of Malaysia’s highest peak. i can say that i’m all set and ready physically and mentally. i’ve been lobbying some friends to join me a month ago. many wanna climb but mostly cant make it at this time of the year. i dont blame them. some of them want to celebrate Christmas and some needs extra time to pump up their stamina. as my friend said, ‘only ppl as crazy as you will go for the climb during this festive season!’ tet!! so that left me with 3 other crazies!! 2 guy friends and my sister. haha!! dragged her last minute :p cos my gf Jane couldnt make it although she had tried all ways to get her leaves approve that includes trying to ‘bribe’ her colleague. LOL!! my sis and i will drive to KK right after Christmas service on 25th and meet up with the 2 boys. and the next day we all will venture up the legendary Mount Kinabalu!!! I. CANNOT. WAIT!!!!

so by now you should know that my excitement towards the climb is more than the excitement to celebrate Christmas. LOL!!

i only started packing last night. dang!!! the jacket alone has occupied half of my luggage bag. but thank goodness i’ve mastered the art of packing (both in short time and maximizing space) i managed to squeeze in everything i need. and at the same time, i was also decluttering my room. that’s when i found a lot of random, weird and funny stuff in between everything that’s in the drawers, the wardrobe, on the desk and side table. LOL!! the most random things so far were two wind chimes i bought from Langkawi and a Gangway ID from my job onboard Otto 3 barge a year ago!!! hahaha!!! i will blog about that in another post. promise!

i guess this all for now. The Boyfriend just asked what i want for Christmas and Birthday present. i am still considering….. :p he mentioned a new lens 😀 but…. i’ll think about it kekeke….. *tamak*

so to all my dear readers, in case i wont have the time to blog again during this festive season here

WISHING ALL OF YOU AWESOME PEOPLE A JOLY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!!!

be blessed, always!

ola!

remember this?! i’ve finally completed the mission. except for Aug. boo!! my travel partner couldnt make it at last minute due to work. i was so tempted to go alone but haihhhh….. i was more worried to make my loved ones worry about me during the vacation to safe my sorry ass!!! iskh!! menyesal!!! T____T but at least i’ve accomplished the rest. and i cannot wait for next year’s travel plan!! *nervous*

that’s it for the traveling department. no more this year!!! unless i’m being sponsored or business related.

as in the photography department, i am sick of landscape already. i am now so itchy to shoot anything other than landscape or any traveling related. so starting from last month i have been asking around if there are people interested hiring free lance. i am so grateful too because there are people approached way earlier this year for my humble service. THANK YOU! but i am aslo free at the moment so I AM UP FOR HIRE!!! any taker?!

woke up earlier than usual this morning hence reaching the office earlier than usual. i think the boys from the car wash shop downstairs were surprised too but they greeted me good morning with their hearty happy voices as usual.

because part of my heart and mind is still in Thailand, i’m wearing this to work today.

Monday Musings

hello from a lazy blogger! T__T i know!!!! dont tell me about it kns. july has been very super mega ultra hectic (with travelling) for me i hardly find free and comfortable time to just sit back and blog. and the photos?!! arrrghh!!! nightmares i tell you. they’ve been piling up each month that i myself can no longer catch up with all of them. ask my friends and family. i’ve yet to post up my photos since errrm… march?! kns. and now i have yet to unpack my luggage since my return from my most recent trip. it has been a week plus now. this is so unusual because i am that kind of weird person who will unpack everything immediately right after arrival NO MATTER HOW TIRED I FEEL LIKE JUST FALL FLAT AND FAINT. because i cannot stand seeing luggage on the floor where they doesnt belong. OCD?!

on a sad note. ceh! (suka betul berduka!) I AM SUPPOSE TO BE LYING ON THE SANDY BEACHES OF PHUKET TODAY AND THEN BANGKOK 2 DAYS AFTER!!!!! but look at where i am now. stuck in the office with NOTHING MUCH TO DO. Grrrrr…. not because i’ve utilised all my annual leaves of this year. not because the boss couldnt release me. but because my travel partner couldnt make it this time. uhuk uhuk uhuk….. i know one of my resolution of this year (konon) is to travel solo. yes. i am so tempted to go by myself but so many loved ones are too worry for me to go there alone *WAILS* sigh!! i guess i am more worry to let them worry about me than i am worry about myself being there. i really dont want my phone to keep ringing during my vacation lor…. not only waste the caller’s bill, waste MY own bills too cos i’ll be paying both ways. but actually that’s not to worry even a bit because Thailand has the cheapest local sim card to call back home. i am not so sad for not be able to be in phuket. i am just VERY SAD for not being able to be in bangkok!!!!!! T______T i want shopping!!!! *hides in corner and sobs*

howkay…. i guess i’ll just have to deal with it already T___T not everything goes as planned. SUCK IT!! ME!! so on a happier note, i’ll still be going to phuket next month. YAY!! and one of my gf is going to tie the knot end of this month. very happy for her and i’ve been very kiasu i’ve booked my ticket to go back because she of all the dates has to pick a date where it would be the most peak season/ date of the month where seats will be very sought after because it will be on the 1st day of school holidays and Hari Raya.

streamyx has been installed at the house. i know what a tortoise, right?! with that all the more reason to blog diligently. please…. give me some moral support if not no post for you to read kns.

i hit the botanical garden yesterday. and i am going to start running daily from now on. because there are evil people who said i’ve gained a tonne! and had too much unnecessary tan *exaggerating* so watch me! by end of this month i will fit back in that skimpy LBD and those skinny jeans that dont show me any love recently T___T

to ease my sadness for not being able to be in thailand today i’m posting this photo below as a reminder of the land of smile 🙂

this is The White Temple of Chiang Rai.

The White Temple (Wat Rong Khun), Chiang Rai Thailand

i’ll see you next month, Thailand.

happy monday and be blessed, peeps!!

the room is hot. but i am blowing my nose *mystery* i was hit by another round of evil flu and mild fever last week hence the blockage of idea to blog. oh yes. i heard you. full of excuses. i know. i am recovering well (oh it better be) because i am going for another long trip and leaving tomorrow. wow whee!! *slides down rainbow* oh, Ha Long Bay is in the itinerary, babeh!! 😀 stay tune for the beautiful photos. next year. *i kid…. * so the state of Sarawak has just had its most talked about state election. the hype of the 10th Sarawak State Election last Sat (16/4) was never before seen. i didnt go back to vote though so i played my role just by lobbying people to vote wisely. the result, not pretty. but again nothing happened without the consent of our good Lord. He has every reason for everything that has happened and He has His reason for Baru Bian to win although the party has lost severely. one of the many FB status, my fellow sarawakian friend’s (who is abroad) caught my attention and deserved pondering ‘a leader who has a messy life or a leader who mess with you life?’ so, to each his own i think. *shrugs* i am not a fan in fact i loathed politics but in recent days as i grow older wiser i couldnt help but to chirp in my irritation towards the players. damn those media persons also managed to raised my temperature with their one-sided tone whenever they comment or anchor where they are supposed to be neutral. and with that i decided to end my rant about that topic. so i am officially a sampat who carries three phones up and down where i only have two ears. kns! one of the ‘fruit phone’ really keep me engrossed with my games, Fashion Story and Smurf’s Village. haha!! i am currently reading the girl who kicks the hornet’s nest. the final series of the millenium trilogy. ohya, i have a new assistant who is hardworking, self-initiated and clean. *tiba-tiba* plus, being pretty and good sense of fashion is always a bonus. now i can have lunch partner 😀 *irrelevant* i am still (and i dunno when will this end) playing the catch up games on all my photos. i have been to three places and all i did was sneak peek. wth! and starting tomorrow i’ll start to add to the tonnes of ‘pending for process’ photos. *sigh* why am i so lazy?! T___T talking bout laziness i have neglected my running routine for almost a month now that it’s killing me. huhuhu…. blame it on the weather for 1) being so unpredictable every time after work it will start to if not rain, it drizzle. 2) making me sick! what else?! T___T i promise i’ll hit the park again once i return from this trip. the other day i was craving for bubur kacang (what is bubur kacang in english, again?) it’s one of my favourite dessert and my mum makes the best one. but now that i am away from the comfort of everything home-cooked it strucked me that i never watch or even bother to learn how to cook it from her T___T so sms-ed her (in her midst of queuing to cast her vote during the election day… hehehe…) for help. and it was my week end project! yesterday, i successfully cooked my yummiest bubur kacang without burning the whole kitchen *proud* i will blog a separate post for this one some other time.

i like this photo. it was taken from a moving van from clark airport to manila city of the philippines. i dunno. maybe it’s the clouds. or the sun. or the beautiful country side view. or the fact that the truck was carrying a farm of pigs. or maybe the feeling i had then. it was a wonderful feeling. it was happiness.

Happy Monday, peeps!!

i wanted to clip my hair up one day because i didnt have a hairband so i asked The Boyfriend to find one around the house. he went searching around and returned with none and with a i-seriously-want-to-help look he asked “can you clip with those clothes pegs?” HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAA!!! i replied in between laughter and teary eyes “hair clips are for hair. clothes pegs are for clothes!! ok?!” HAHAHAHAHAAA!! he turned away with a face like a tomato. then that evening my monthly red visited without warning so i wasnt prepared so i had to asked him to help me to buy sanitary pads. he returned with 2 packs of pantyliners instead!!! i refrained myself from laughing but HAHAHAHAHHAAAA!!!! he has to return and get the correct ones. my oh my……. guys with girl things!!

Post Proposal + Midget Feet

so i am free. so free but tired max after the whole hectic crazy rush of meeting the deadlines that stole my beauty sleeps away from me since the last three days. for two days in a row i had been working late at night in the office and a day before the submission i went home at 1a.m. @_@ the proposal has to be submitted by hand so i had to fly (return) to kk yesterday just to drop the freaking heavy box and a giant envelope to the counter. i was in the mood of dressing up (for no apparent reason like usual) and for a moment i thought that i must ‘create’ a reason for my effort to doll up. so i turned into a bimbo and this was what i posted on my twitter and fb. “I hope my effort to dress nice2 n did hair nice2 just to submit this bid will give a point for winning it :p *bimbo* this box is heavy n I lack sleep @_@” i think i passed to be one, no? and it only took me 15 minutes to drop the whole thing at the submission counter!!! i could have taken the next flight around noon but i had bought a night flight so i had one whole day in kk all by myself. week days suck!!! nobody can entertain you. but thank goodness i met a long time friend on the flight so we had sushi together before we parted. and for the first time ever i had to kill time by watching movie – the mechanic, alone *cue for akon’s lonely song* but honestly i quite enjoy the lonesome though. the only bummer i sat near a young couple who whispered too loud to each other T.T i am on a mission to hunt for the perfect shoes (if you know what i mean) i saw a perfect heels that i’ve been looking for a long time but wth, horror of all horrors, they didnt have my size!!!!! *glass shattered sound* why??!!! why???!!!!! why must i always always encounter such heartbreaking and hope-wrenching moment when buying shoes?!!! why do they never consider foot for midget like me??!! what make me even disappointed was the fact that the heels were considerably cheap for its class and design. and i cannot have them!! *cry a river* i read somewhere from a fashion magazine once that asked, ‘are you a shoe person or a bag person?’ my answer is definitely the former. that explains the emo-ness ok now shut up i am still mending my broken heart over the pretty heels….. i know, i is emo but still…. *drama queen sobs silently in corner*

huhuhuhuuu….. the shoes….

T_______T

*sigh*

i have so many photos in the folder waiting to be processed now that just looking at them i feel sorry to all the people who are awaiting for them to be posted up. haihhh…. i might as well start doing that now so that’s a hint that i’m gonna leave now and start slaving myself with the photos. tonnes of them. gambateh to me! and please stay tune for my next photo post. i hope.

so are you a shoe person or a bag person?

tak habis2 lagi.

happy thursday and be blessed, peeps!!

happy monday, and be blessed peeps!

Secret of The Moment

oh wait a minute. *dust off spiderwebs from the blog page* i know i know. it has been a while. but i have reasons to neglect my blog and being the owner of this respective blog i am allowed to appear and disappear as i like. there are so much i wanna update. like. my vision. no. not my vision in life but my eyes. i think they’ve increased in prescription. as i am typing this. i am squinting so hard to look at the words i type. and sometimes it gives me migrain. ohno!! i just got my new sets of contact lenses and now??! huhu T__T then my health. gosh. i have to admit i am growing old. tsk! macam2 penyakit. the most shocking one was two weeks ago when blood was coming together with my urine. but i’ll spare the details of my gross pepe story. ohya, about my opito sea survival course last month that i cannot believe i am still here to get a refresher. wow. i still can’t get myself away from the sea aei. and the new friends i made throughout the training course. been too busy with work that i dont want to talk about it but since i’ve touched the surface. heck. why not? so let me tell you things i hate about office now. PRINTERS!! they sucks!! like donkey balls!! or at least the two at my office currently. i think they conspired to go against me since the last two weeks. out of 5 reports (3 copies each) they only managed to produce one complete report. kns! evil evil machines! but i still have times for facebook. browsing at friends photos. and of course emo statuses after malaysia lose the Thomas Cup. and the funny comments that came after it. one of the funniest status so far is from wendy that goes “haha,very funny,gt 3 ppl come to my salon to cut their hair,1 said wan to cut ‘butterfly’ style,then another one said cut ‘ikan baong’ style,n then the last 1 said wan to cut ‘spider’ style then ‘lion’ a bit(lion mean layer),wakakaka… funny!!!! the funny one is cut ‘IKAN BAONG’ style,hahahahaha” LOL!! then stalking at my many many favourite photographers blogs to get inspired but my lazy bum just refuse to get up and go for a shoot. poor labo sitting at the corner of the closet begging for freedom. time will come dear. but on the bright side. i am saving my shutter count :p *kiam siap* but the that voice behind my serebelum just shouted. ‘without practice how do u think u’ll get better u lazy bum?’ lalalalala…. and there’s a wedding to shoot in three weeks time! *shrieks* but before that i am so excited for next week. next week will mark my very first roadtrip with only one companion. jane. she’ll be arriving friday and we’ll drive to a FUNtastic holidays labuan-kk(4D3N)-lawas-limbang-brunei-miri. and talking bout that i shall now announce that i finally got my new BABYYYYYY!!!! a handsome, dark, black, rugged (almost like labo) baby. and i’ve name her errrm…. ok him Thunder. dont hate :p kns la.. now i have 2 babies to fund i’m gonna eat grass alone at the back of my kitchen from now on T____T and talking about eating grass i am dying to kill the excess kilos by trying to go without rice but failed terribly i almost fainted in the office last week due to gastric. a very bad one since a very long time. i guess i cant live without rice. and later that evening instead of feeding myself i bought these…..

can these cure my gastric?! no. but they sure killed my boredoms 🙂

ok now for the BIG SECRET OF THE MOMENT!!
