oh, how honourable that you actually replied! Haha... I once tried to write a blog, but just couldnt continue as I myself not a good writer anyway.

What amaze me the most is the way how you both enjoy and appreciate food. Being brought up in a small island called Labuan, life there is rather slow and steady. People there are less educate on so called 'fine dining'. If u ask me, I still dont know how to dine in the proper way not to mention tasting of good wines. Hell I really dont know how. :)

In my wildest dream, I would dream seeing myself in your shoe, enjoying what u called LIFE. That's why everytime a new entry of yours, always put a smile on my face as you are one cool and hell funny chick! Not to say notti~~ :D

Guess that is why Terry is so madly in love with you. Wish u both living happily ever after ok?

Shall wait for ur Ipoh post then!

Mee Mee: Thank you for the wishes. :) U got Teofu the coffee machine already? Did u also get him to solve the maze/puzzle? hehehe.

Elly: Don't let anything hinder u from writing/blogging. If u dun start somewhere, u will never will. Right? :)))

I started this blog to document my journey aka online journal and learnt a lot along the way. Remember u blog for your own, not for ppl. Then u shouldn't have much problem. :))) Good luck there Elly!!
