Nora Elena @ Kasih Yang Suci

I'm never a Malay drama fan. Infact, I'm never a drama fan. I hate the waiting, episode after episode. I hate watching life conflicts, office politics, love triangle, betrayal, etc, etc. I only watch movies- chiclit or romantic comedy. Which will left u in cloud 9 or in fantasy world, feeling good for the rest of the day.
But I do watch TV series- CSI, NCSI, House & Glee. Hmm.. That's about it that I can think of.
Anyway, reason that I talk (or rather, type) about Malay drama, is that, there are a big hoo haa everywhere about ' Nora Elena '. It's the latest Malay drama, that being aired every Monday til Thursday, 7 to 8pm, in TV3.
I don't remember when was the last time I watched a drama, a Malay drama to be specific. But curiosity kills the cat. So before the cat is dead, I rather kills the curiosity first :D
And so... I... googled.
I read the novel.. The last time I read a Malay novel is 20years ago, seriously. Then I start to watch the drama series online. All 24 episodes.

So here is my take on 'Nora Elena', it's the loose adaptation from the novel 'Kasih Yang Suci'.

1- Aaron Aziz is one hot man. But I don't really like the character he potrays in this drama. Seth Tan, from a Malay, Chinese parents, who is a very good mannered man, romantic, patience, bla, bla, bla. Who.. raped a highschool girl 10yrs ago! Huh?? The way he talk, 'mcm ayam berak kapur' (I'll look for the English version of this proverb later). Forlorn, sad. Pathetic 'innocence' looking. It'll be better if he's more cheeky, and smile once in a while.

2- Seth Tan loves Nora so much, and he has to take care of Nora. When asked why, he said, he can't tell the reason yet. And somewhere in the mid episode, he reavealed, or rather Nora found out, because, he raped Nora. So, all his extra 'romantic'ness are justifiable.
So, ladies, don't go around and nag your husband on why he isn't romantic enough. For one, he didn't raped you when you are a teenager.

3- Yvonne. OMG!! She is one f*#king Bi#ch! But I don't blame her that much. Seth Tan is giving her hope, indirectly. He treat her as his best friend. Huh?? Didn't he knows..universal rule (at least in my universe), man & woman can't merely be best friend.

4- The house that Nora lives before she got married, & Malik's bachelor pad- come on, those places are so nice. Can you imagine, someone who works in bookstore, can afford to live in that house, moreover in Setiawangsa! (well, may be it's her parents place- I might have missed that part).

5- Seth Tan is one bad-ass. He 'steals' people's fiancee.

6- that car in that colour looks awesome ;)

7- most of the scene were filmed around my place, but why I never come accross Aaron Aziz??

8- thank God my plus one rarely wear white to office, it's difficult to wash white shirt.

9- FYI, 'life' do start after 10pm. Businessmen like to have business meeting at night, in coffee house, mamak stall, and lounge. Whatever their reasons are. @_@

10- I've realised the reason that made me watched 'Nora Elena'- curiosity and I'm running out of books to read!!!

There you go. :) These are just my two cents opinion, don't be furious if you don't share my thoughts.

Daddy's Closet

2weeks ago was my other half birthday. As usual we can't celebrate it together. He was away, as he usually does.

The kids wanted to get their daddy a birthday present. We discussed and discussed and discussed. They came out with a lot of ideas, ranging from a ball pen, handkerchief, keychains, to a new car.
I tried to encourage them to focus on what does daddy really need. Listen to his grumble & complains. And sticking to our budget (which is not much base on the 'job' that I have now ;) ).

So, we bought him a chest of drawers. :D
He always complain that my stuff crowding his space in our current wardrobe. And how his things get disorganized.
Now, all his small stuff, can go into those drawers. It's very well organized there, he can easily reach for his things every morning, while he rushes to prepare to go to work.

But now, he still complaints! He said his things are 'lonely' inside that chest, and he still has a lot of space. He wants to share the space with me. Wouldn't that create the initial chaos? :s

Anyway AB, we know that you also need a new sunglasses and a wallet. But those are way beyond our budget. The thoughts do counts though.

I wanted to write about something, but I am seriously sleepy. So I will keep this short.

I'm suppose to finish 'spring' cleaning the house. I know, it's very unlikely of me to get it done. Especially with my 'mess-making-machine' aka the littlest muchkins.
I planned to make some macaroons and cakes.
And prepare the ingredients for tomorrow's breakfast scones.

But, I'm very sleepy now. Might as well 'postpone' everything until tomorrow.

Before I shift from this blogosphere to my dreamworld, just a note, that last Wednesday, was my wedding 10th anniversary :D

Friend But Not Friend

This blog must really hate me for abandoning it for years. Anyway I'm always in cyberspace, through Facebook and a few others.
But the thing is, I'm having some issues with my FB friends in my friendlist. Not that they 'disturb' or doing any harmful thing towards me. Problem is, some of them are not doing anything. They never comment your status updates. They neither say hi nor being a friend for benefit ie. farmville neighbour :D. They never say any words of encouragement when we need them. Why are they still in my friend list?
The worst is, when they added us as friend, but they block everything from us, photos, can't write on their walls, etc. As if we want to write there everyday.
I should remove them right away. I don't need lots of 'friend's that are not a friend. But then, here come the guilt. What will they say if I simply remove them?
Argghh..there are surely a lot to think about when you are being nice.

Today, I already have what to blog about. All in my head. But when I walked up to my room (it's where the desktop is), I made a mistake. I stopped by to watch Cougar Town. And 'poof'.. I forgot what I want to talk about.
Anyway, it was a fun-to-watch sitcom. So that forgetfulness is forgiveable. :D
Have a nice day XOXO
