Introducing ... SugarButter

Despite a rather difficult economic environment right now, that, doesn't deter people to be a dreamchaser at all.

Probably, it's the difficulties in life which force people to venture into new things in order to make a few extra bucks.

Whatever it maybe, it is always interesting and exciting to see a new-borned baby. Well, in this case, it's a new business venture.

Introducing SugarButter, a wonderful boutique owned by 2 fantastic ladies in Ipoh. From what i've heard, this is what they always wanted to do for a long time. Not, entirely in the business to make money, (but of course, that would be nice if they can make loads of them) but, it's their mission, desire and passion, to share and to bring some fashion senses (albeit, an affordable one) to this small town of Ipoh.

Some says, clothes are everywhere, but it's very hard to find fashion.

Once again, ladies and gentlemen, introducing SugarButter.

Congratulations buddies. You guys are bosses now. Now go make some money.

The End and The Beginning

In another week time, i can officially say Bye bye to my good old wild boyhood days, and say hello to manhood.

(well, not like i wasn't a Man before...just that now im least in the eye of the elders...well, whatever, you get the point)

First of all, sorry to you all ladies out there. Im no longer LEGALLY available. (read between the lines please...)

Second of all, sorry to all outstationers who has to take an extra day-off on monday just to get to our dinner... Very much appreciated. Hope that you guys will have loads of fun next Sunday. Also, beside providing a fantastic venue for the party, loads of booze will be served too, so make sure you guys are all drunk!

Thirdly, sorry to those who can't get to sit with whoever they like or those who will be going to sit with whoever they don't like. Sorry mate, allocation problem / mistake so nothing can be done, just bear with it! (or you can increase the ang pau money to $X,xxx,xxx.xx, then can even consider putting you up on VIP table)

It has been a super hectic month in preparation, so not going to write a long one now. Remember, if you love me as much as i love you, remember to give me a nice and big angpau yeah?

Ciao! See you at the party!

er...something like this... i think.

Approximately 2 weeks after i came back to Malaysia, i got myself a blackberry bold 9000.

If you have been following my blog, you would know how much the blackberry had tortured me when i was at my previous job.

But then i realised, despite being bugged 24/7 by job-related matters, blackberry can be real fun too. The best thing is that you can surf the web, check your emails and hook yourself up to facebook, twitter, msn, google chat etc etc 24/7. i.e. stay connected to the cyberworld, for leisure and for work.

i found it particularly useful because i can check my stock movements via blackberry since i have no bloomberg access anymore these days, and not to mention how useful and wonderful the blackberry messenger can be.

Similar to others, before i got myself a blackberry, i was struggled to choose between the blackberry or the iphone. Millions of people are debating everyday on which one is better (like xiaxue and kyspeaks from the blackberry camp, Timothy from the iphone camp...) but i chose the blackie (a.k.a blackberry) in the end because i have this "special connection" with blackberry. Well, i like the QWERTY keyboard and the professional looks of it.

It's inevitable that you can't hide away from staying in connection with the world constantly to keep yourself abreast of the fast-moving world. The era of Web 2.0 does make wonders.

Read a recent entry by Sheylara (which is essentially from Davienne...) on how social media helped her to find her missing dog and the interesting part two here. It's quite interesting to see how the world has become. Interesting.

Morning Jog

Woke up at 5 a.m. plus today. Mum dragged me out of bed to accompany her and dad for their daily morning walk / jog.

Since retirement, my dad and mum have been religiously jog around our neighbourhood every morning (even if they are down in KL) in order to keep fit. My dad always say to me "boy, you better join us, else i will be slimmer and better looking that you". man, that's pressurizing.

Imagine when you go out with your dad, and people thought he's your brother. Younger one somemore. Die.

Back to the early morning torture. Mum was saying it's good for me to join them since i have nothing better to do (like sleeping till noon is not a "better" thing to do).

On the day itself, my alarm went off at 5am, and it just went off without me noticing it. It's 5am for god sake. i used to sleep at 5am during my summer break back in school, and now you're asking me to wake up at 5am.

The only time during the last two years when i was awake at 5am was back in Hong Kong, in my office, working my a$$ off for almost 20hrs in a row.

And the last time i jogged at 5am (yes, i did it before), it was back in form 5 when i was preparing for my SPM. I woke up at 3am to study but couldn't concentrate, so i went to jog at 5am, but it didn't last long as the dogs in the neighbourhood weren't too friendly to me.

So, i woke up, put on my gear, and walked out with my mum. Gosh. it's pitch dark alright. But it's super cooling and nice. Never really thought malaysia has such nice fresh air.

To much of my surprise, this morning walk thingy is super huge in my neighbourhood. Basically all the aunties and uncles in the neighbourhood were out on the street. Some were leisurely strolling, some were busy chatting, some jogged at a pretty fast pace (like they are training for marathon or something).

I was like the only young bloke there. The youngest, in fact. Everytime we bumped into another aunties/uncles, they always say "oh, your son?" "look like his dad!" "So tall!"

I have lost count how many times i heard those lines in the morning. Guess that's the standard opening line ("SOL") for Aunty-Uncle-Conversation ("AUC"). (other SOL for AUC are like "have you eaten?" "nice weather!" etc etc)

Our "jog" lasted for about 30mins, before it rained heavily. Without any raincoat or umbrella with us, we have to let it stopped there. Mum and Dad's normal routine walk could last up to 1-2 hours. Pretty hardcore stuff it is.

When i reached home, i bumped into dad with his A-team (Mum belongs to B-team, aka the slower team and the team which do lesser laps). My dad and his "teammates" all had an umbrella with them, and they kept marching on.

Mum said "nothing can stop the A-team from doing their daily routine!"

When i grow up, i want to join the A-team too. Haha. But before that, let's hit the sack. :)

It was a beautiful morning though. Nice walk
