Can you survive with RM50 for a week?

Yes,it's my new determination.
I don't want to draw my saving and don't want to use my ATM card too.
The challenge will start next week,only RM50 a whole week of 5 days of my working days.
I live about 4 km from workplace and need gas too.My gas will be RM30,then the balance only RM20.
My plan is to fasting on Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday.There will be no more goodies buying for my kids.I will cook for the meal (the groceries still left for a week meal).
I had been fasting for most of my weekdays recently and I can see a huge difference.I feel not tend to buy junk food and unnecessary stuff.


Here's some comment and like to post here for my own motivation.Most is a funny comments:

~I had tried to survive with RM100 per week. Life suck.

~This is one of the way that you can survive.
1. Breakfast - oat meal. (RM1. or less)
2. Lunch - Any meal around RM 4.
3. Dinner - eat salad, or boil potato with baked Bean or Tuna (RM 2)
a day = RM 7/- * 7 RM 49. Ok or not?

~No,
$50 per week I would surely mati,
$50 per day boleh.

~No Money! I'll lend you RM 15.10, ok ah?? can tahan or not?

~yup,i can
but u must have determination to do that
plus u must organise ur meal etc very well

~breakfast RM1 butter bun
lunch RM2 nasi lemak
dinner maggi 0.60cent
=3.60 *10
=RM36
50-36=14

~Yes, but not for many weeks. You won't die, but would wish you are. You can have maggi mee plus egg every day three times. Cost RM1.50 *3 per day=RM4.50 per day. One week=RM31.50. Extra RM18.50 you can have extra, like nasi lemak, or Nasi rendang lembu...once or twice a week. For drink,use boiled tap water.

~No. No. Non!
i need more than rm 50 weekly to refill my car gas tank! :(
I don't care much about meals though..i rarely have more than 2 meals in a day. Always in a rush, busy busy busy
Oh don't get me started on weekly shopping
I think I'll die at an early age.

~I can.. no, my elder sis can.. They are in campus, and my mom gives them RM50 everyweek, they do not get scholarship.. I guess, we can always fast, everyday, only eat big breakfast(4+) and light dinner(3+), but, this is only food, others like bills and rent not included..
~Tough!
Unless you still live and eat at home, and your Dad/Mom/boyfriend sends you to work/school. And the boyfriend to pay for your dates as well. Poor chap! He'd better have more than RM50..

~can...
breakfast-salad
lunch-salad
dinner- plain water

~I have done it before during my "unemployed" day.
Yes. You can survive. If you are a lady! You can even save th penny if with a packet of instant noodle. How ?You should buy bread . Dip the break into the instant noodle. It taste good but don't over do it for 3 consecutive days.
Alternate and be creative with your food.

~breakfast-roti canai or nasi lemak rm1
lunch-chicken rice,etc-rm5
dinner-maggi+eggs rm1
drinks-with plain water)
=7*7
=rm49

~once,i had only rm10 to spare for almost a week cos my parents couldn't send me money,they went to indon or something and i had to eat maggi for every meal for a few days
same as dying la,it was horrible
never want to go through that again

~RM50 per week...
let me see
morning, breakfast at home = free*
lunch = RM4
dinner, at home = free*
RM4 x 5 = RM20
balance RM30 can belanja my kids 2 Happy Meal.
ok, lah.
* free, coz not out of my pocket.... hubby bought groceries, I just cook, no need to take out my own money.

~Morning - Eat bread - Rm1.50
Afternoon - Chicken Rice - Rm4
Night - Maggie Goreng + Roti Canai - Rm3.80
One day = 9.30
One week = 65.10
Aiyo tak boleh lah......

~i don't think i can survive unless i eat bread everyday, need to pay for transportation, notes and book -if you're student
but i'm also lack of money now
money...money..where're u?

~if down to that situation, then have to lor..

~can... if you tapau from home... wait i do calculation again... err may be can kot

~Impossible unless you walk, prepare your own meals & do not own a cellphone, maybe then it's possible to survive on just RM 50 for 7 days.

~can..
coz i live wif me parents..only pay for lunch in the office..
huhuhu~

~Milk + Oat biscuits, mixed.
Eat 3 meals a day. Not only save money but can also slim down.......

~i think i can..
opis just near by my house..
bfast/lunch/dinner/supper almost everyday at home..
fuel rm10 per week oso enuf..

~yup..there's nothing for me to worry about, even when im in college cos everything is provided at home..food,electricity,water,internet,et...

~yup..i leave the rest to my mom..hehe..and she'll fix it for me

~Haha..impossible now.
If you own a bicycle and very stingy type of person..yes

~no money
hahahaha i sure die

~I can.. RM10 per week also can..
errr... wait, I just figure out I'm not in Big enough City.. ~lol~

~Fuel a week is RM15..i lived very near to my workplace.
bfast RM1.80 , lunch RM4.00 = RM5.80/day
RM5.80 x 5 days =RM29.00
RM29.00 + RM15 = RM44...only lorr
aiya...but still i have to buy pampers la, susu baby la..vitamin la...how to survive..
~ohya
hardly u can survive... unless go beg for some food ....

~The results=
I can't survive with Rm50 a week.Coz had to buy milk,fill up gas,top up hp credit and buy groceries.
I can survive if I don't need to buy the item more than RM10.
RM50 can do if just for lunch and buy breakfast a week.
Somehow I had manage to live with RM60 and still able to bought a milk,fill up gas and top up credit coz i had been fasting for 4 days a week.
I can survive but felt terrible and think about the money and budget all the time..no peace of mind.

Bantahan Terhadap Penyiaran Drama Bersiri Nora Elena

Saja aku copy paste email ni...

The cast in the drama..
Nowa,
Kakitangan Kajaan,
Putrajaya

TV3
Sri Pentas,
No 3, Persiaran Bandar Utama
Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya

Tuan,
Per : Bantahan Terhadap Penyiaran Drama Bersiri Nora Elena

Adalah dengan hormatnya saya merujuk kepada perkara di atas dan drama bersiri Nora Elena adalah berkaitan.

2. Dimaklumkan, bahawa saya, Nowa dengan ini membantah penyiaran drama bersiri Nora Elena yang disiarkan setiap hari, jam 7 petang di saluran tuan. Antara sebab sebab pembantahan saya adalah seperti berikut.

i) Membuatkan jiwa isteri isteri terganggu. Mana ada suami gitu sabo dalam dunia ini? Logik tak bila Nora tanya Seth, asal Seth tak penah marah dengan apa saja perbuatan Nora? Seth jawab, sebab Seth terlalu sayangkan Nora. Jadi kesimpulan, isteri-isteri mula curiga dengan suami mereka yang sepanjang masa marah marah. Ni laki aku sayang ke tak ni?

ii) Jiwa jiwa suami juga turut terganggu. Ini kerana, apa bila tiba scene scene romantik dan tidak dapat diterima akal, seperti Nora terpeleot, Seth siap dukung bawak g sofa, tingkat bawah..(gila gagah..aritu aku nak branak, laki aku gendeng henbek aku, beg kain aku, pastu tunggu aku kat grill depan umah, aku la terkedek-kedek jalan sendiri..pastu pegang lengan aku je tau..bila suh dukung macam biasa drama atau filem buat, laki ckp, "ah gile mung, patoh pinggang!" Pastu sampai sepital, lari lari amik wilca..kalu dukung macam drama melayu kan bagus??)
Oh pasal part romantik tu, biasanya isteri akan menjeling kepada suami, disertai dengan kata kata sinis, "dedi mung ni masa dulu geletak nok ke mami, masa mami begetoh je belanar beli bunga, minyok wangi, cekelat bagai..leni doh dapat mami doh haghammmmmm!!! asal besday ke anniversary ke, pakai tektik, hadiah ai pada yu adalah sebuah cinta yang murni dan ikhlas"....itu je?? harharharharam!!
Paling koman, selepas jelingan tajam, cubitan kental di lemak perut pasti akan singgah di bahagian perut suami.
Jadi, sebagai lelaki melayu, suami, mereka juga merasa hangat dengan penyiaran drama bersiri ini.
Kebiasaan jugak, malam malam yang sepatutnya diisi dengan aktiviti sukan berair akan berlalu begitu saja, pabila sang isteri makan hati, lelaki melayu dalam drama lagi romantik dari laki sendiri. Saje saje wat merajuk, ingatkan si laki pujuk cam si Seth pujuk Nora, tapi tak tau laki sendiri penat, dah, amik kau, sampai ke pagi tak dapat apa apa..laki tak pujuk satu hal, laki horny dibuat bini gitu pun satu hal..Sian Johnny!

iii) Memberi harapan pelesu kepada gadis gadis yang belum menikah.
Apabila pengaruh Seth Tan mula menular, maka ramai gadis gadis mencari pasangan hidup yang romantik nak mampus macam Seth Tan. Selepas menonton siri itu juga, kajian secara rambang mendapati kebanyakan dahi gadis gadis lebam. Ini adalah berikutan dengan tabiat sebelum tido mereka yang gemar meletakkan belakang tapak tangan ke dahi sebelum tido sambil berangankan lelaki seromantik Seth Tan, walau sebenarnya, Non Ada lelaki MELAYU seromantik itu. Yang romantik cumalah, lelaki Bangladesh, lelaki Lombok, dan Shahrukh Khan sahaja.

iv) Pasangan-pasangan bercinta kerap bergaduh.
Sang aweks memaksa jejaka untuk kerap membelikan bunga. Sedangkan boipren tu keja Kerani je kat Kementerian Kewangan. Gaji pun RM1500 jek. Kau gile sekuntum bunga brape hengget?? Kalu nak 3 kuntum sebulan, takpe jugak. Ni nak 21 roses everiday?? Kau gile, ko nak mamoh kelopak bunga ke? Kau ingat kau cantik macam Nora Elena nak demand-demand? cess

v) Tak logik punya citer..Brape lama kawen baru bole 'bersama'?? Ada ke lelaki sesabar Seth tu.. Ok, takde ke tunjuk scene Seth 'tumbuk sambal'?? eh, kalu betol ada lelaki tak penah sentuh isteri, kira mesti dia 'tumbuk sambal' kan? hahahha...takut awak sakit belakang konon..padahal ajak tido skali..mood cameron suda mari..eh, tetiba teringat Jay....kahkahkahakha

vi ) kari hangus, nasik hangit
Duk sibuk berkejar dari dapur ke hall, pastu ke dapur semula, pastu part ehem ehem, part ada pelangi, dah teralit, tengok sambil berangan, jeling laki, dah lupa kari kat dapur..hangit gitu je..

vii) Mengganggu tumbesaran anak kecil.
Pabila seorang isteri, terpengaruh dengan apa yang dilihat di kaca telebisi, nak perli secara derek kepada laki sendiri takut kena penampo, jadi, anak kecil dijadikan medium untuk menyampaikan isi hati
"tengok tu Alya, dulu dedi mung semart gitu ah, nok g dating siap bukak pintu bagai sume? leni? mami terkedek kedek bawok barang dia hon siap siap doh"
"owoh Alya ork? napok ngat nipu..mana ada orang kawen doh romantik gitu ork??"
Kesian la budak kecit tu terkebil kebil tak tau ape mak dia bebelkan

3. Sekian dimajukan untuk pertimbangan dan kelulusan pihak tuan. Dan semoga dengan ini, tiada lagi kekeliruan dan kecelaruan minda penonton penonton lagi. Mana ada lelaki romantik gitu dalam dunia..kalu ada pun sebelum kawen, lepas kawen, bagi setahun, atau dah dapat anak sorang, jadi kayu la semuanya..Jadi, dimohon pihak tuan agar tidak mempermainkan perasaan kami, dan memberi harapan pelesu kepada gadis gadis diluar sana

Sekian,
"BERPIJAK DIDUNIA NYATA ADALAH TUNGGAK KEHIDUPAN BAHAGIA"

Nate Berkus's Chicago Home

Nate Berkus's dogs, Henry and Emma, meet us at the door. "I live in a beautiful vintage building that was built in the heart of downtown Chicago," Nate says. "Do not be surprised by the lack of color in this place. I like to keep things really simple."


Nate's living room is a good example of what his design style is all about. "Everywhere in my house are these little things that have meanings and make me think of great memories." Nate found the pair of gold and green chairs in a flea market in New York.
 
  After Nate helped a widow incorporate memories of her late husband in a new room incorporate memories of her late husband into a new room—including a feather that she said had personal meaning—he realized everyone has a "feather" of their own.


This is the most important thing in Nate's house. "Everyone always asks themselves, 'What would you grab in a fire?' For me, my dogs and then this, which is a woven photograph that was a Christmas present from Fernando." Fernando Bengoechea was Nate's partner, a photographer who passed away in the tsunami tragedy.
  Nate's home is filled with items he picked up on vacations or got from Fernando. This table he picked up in Mexico and the little horses used to be in Fernando's apartment.
Nate's house is truly a doghouse. Henry and Emma are sitting on a sofa that Nate designed years ago. "It is upholstered in plain linen, which is one of my big tips for everybody," Nate says. "Buy a simple sofa and you can change pillows when you change your mind about color.
 
 
Nate loves the industrial look of these shelves, which he says came from the basement of a French bank.
 
  From the dining room, you can see one of the best features of Nate's apartment—the view of Lake Michigan.

Nate designed the concrete dining room table himself. "The main use for this is takeout Thai food, pizza and anything that can be delivered when I am done with a day of work." And he's not joking!
This is Nate's kitchen. "It's a great old kitchen," Nate says. "In fact, these are the original cabinets. I just had them painted army green, which is one of my favorite colors.'
Nate has a beautiful commercial oven, but here's the truth: "I have never boiled a pot of water on this stove."


This is Nate's office, where he spends a lot of time when he's working from home. It's bright and sunny and filled with stuff that makes him happy, including this piece of folk art. "It's some sort of mathematical equation that neither me nor my friends are smart enough to figure out."


Nate says he spends the most time in his library.
Nate loves the architecture in this room. "The wood paneling was here when the apartment was renovated in the 1950s. I actually added leather with baseball stitching to make the room feel even warmer."


Nate Berkus added leather with baseball stitching to the wood paneling in his library. "I love this room for so many reasons," Nate says. "Books are the heart of any home, and I spend hours going through books for design inspiration."
The 300-year-old rug from the border of China and Russia also adds additional warmth. "It just makes me happy. There are crazy birds...and I love the design."
Among the things Nate fell in love with in his apartment are the closets. "I am very organized, so you can see I've got my stuff exactly the way I want it," Nate says. "I am a neat freak, this is a bit embarrassing."



Well, America, it's the room you've been waiting to see! In Nate's bedroom, he has crisp white sheets.
Nate has a nightstand filled with books, but he also created a little memory area filled with pictures and items that hold special meaning for him
Nate also has a memory wall in his bedroom filled with photography from friends, a close-up of a camel that makes him laugh and a framed song list from a James Taylor concert in Chicago.

Nate has a TV in his bedroom—one of Oprah's biggest decorating pet peeves. "I am busted," he says. "I rarely watch TV, Oprah, I swear, and it only gets two fuzzy channels, but it is in here. I am busted."


Nate Berkus's Manhattan Home

In May 2005, designer Nate Berkus invited The Oprah Show into his spacious Chicago apartment. Now, he's taking us along as he tackles New York City's tough real estate market.

"The truth is, I'm really familiar with the city because I've been working here for so long," Nate says. "Between visiting private clients or seeing my attorneys or having meetings with the people at Linens 'n Things [where he has his own line of home decor], I've been coming here at least every other week for the past few years."
The time had come, though, for him to put down roots. So he found a real estate agent online and called to say that he'd be in the city in a week and would have a day to find an apartment. "I knew what I could afford," Nate says. "Plus, it had to be old. It had to be a one bedroom. It had to have high ceilings. And it had to make me feel happy."
Nate says his new neighborhood, Manhattan's West Village, is the perfect place for him. "I love the sounds, the sights [and] the energy," he says.

In just two months, Nate transformed his sparse living area into a space that oozes with personal style.
First, Nate decided to paint everything white—the floors, the walls and the ceiling—to make the apartment appear larger. "I wanted the boundaries of this entire space just to go away," he says.
Then, he furnished the living room with a 1960s Danish sofa and a '60s Milo Baughman armchair. "If you actually keep things very organized and clutter-free, you can have more furniture than you think you can in a small space," he says.
Nate says people living in small homes shouldn't shy away from big artwork. A large piece—like Nate's bird painting by Michael Hainey—actually makes the home feel more spacious, he says. The art on the back wall is by Ross Bleckner (left) and James Brown.
He also mixed new and vintage purchases from his favorite resources. Practically every other object on display is a gift from a friend, something made by a friend or a souvenir from a trip he took with a friend.





Nate updated his kitchen with a French limestone-topped bar (made out of an old conference table from his former Chicago office), 1950s bar stools from Center44, a stainless steel backsplash and a new coat of paint on the existing cabinets.
The paint is a high-gloss blue-black, the same color that's on every door in the apartment. "That adds architectural interest to a space this small," he says.
Then, Nate replaced the cabinets' knobs with small brass latches that he found in Greece. "That was a beautiful detail for me that changed the entire feeling of the apartment," he says.
To save space, Nate bought a refrigerator that fits under the counter and slides out like a drawer.

When Nate bought his Manhattan apartment, he knew he'd have to completely overhaul the bathroom. The original pink tiles were not what he had in mind.
First, Nate replaced the colorful ceramic tiles in the shower with white subway tiles. Then, he tiled over the floor with marble. "If your floor is in good condition, you can tile right over the entire thing," he says. "It will save you a lot of money or time in labor."
He also installed a steel mirror from urban antique store Scout in Chicago, a light fixture from Circa Lighting and a shower curtain from the Nate Berkus collection at Linens 'n Things. "I made a mirror super tall in this room because that makes the space seem much, much bigger than it is," he says.
The pedestal sink was also swapped out for a less contemporary one
Nate turned one end of the living room into an office and entertainment space.

What was once a closet is now a media center. "Think about the inside of a closet," he says. "It doesn't necessarily have to be just for storage."
The desk is a factory table he found at Scout; the chair, a 1950s Fratelli Campana. The jute rug is from Pottery Barn. The porcelain Nymphenburg rhino was a birthday gift from a friend.
  Nate tore down the wall between the living room and the bedroom, replacing it with custom French doors by 3-D Laboratory. He designed the bed frame and his bed linens, which are from the Nate Berkus collection at Linens 'n Things.

"In a small space, you want to keep the bedding as simple as possible so it looks clean, calm and collected," he says.
Next to the bed, Nate used industrial shelves he found at a Paris flea market to create his mini desk. The shelving unit above the desk goes all the way up to the ceiling. "Take advantage of the height in a room that's a tight space otherwise," he says.
To give the bedroom more character, Nate replaced the ceiling fan with a vintage chandelier.
"If you have a small space, you can still make it great," he says. "And most of all, make it really comfortable."

10 Pieces of Advice to Get You Through a Terrible Day

By Lisa Kogan

In the past ten years I have survived an asymmetrical bob, a high-risk pregnancy, a malignant melanoma, a sneak preview of Shutter Island, and diabetes. I've watched someone I love die of AIDS and someone I most definitely do not love sit in the White House. I have become acutely aware of the fact that bad guys often win and nice guys sometimes finish last and the karmic wheel takes its sweet time to spin around and set things right. My rent has been raised, my enthusiasm has been curbed, my kid has been bullied, and I can't find a pair of silver sandals to save my soul.
But here's what I've figured out about putting one unsandaled foot in front of the other and trying to move forward in the midst of sorrow and chaos:

1. People have vast reservoirs of tenacity and resilience. All those days and nights that I was so sure I couldn't get through have come and gone. I'm still here and so, my friend, are you! It turns out we can only eat chicken potpie in our underwear and watch an endless loop of Law & Order reruns for about a week before a better angel urges us to say goodbye to Sam Waterston, shave our legs, and get back out there.

2. Find yourself a friend, a shrink, a stranger at a bus shelter: It doesn't matter who, as long as it's a person who doesn't have an agenda. We all need that one someone in our lives who doesn't hear what we have to say filtered through the prism of his or her own needs. Think Switzerland. Okay, that's a bad example because Switzerland only pretends to be neutral while hiding the money of war criminals and forcing jet-lagged tourists to eat fondue...but you get the idea.

3. Do something—anything—for somebody else. I promise, it'll help you feel a little bit better.

4. Do something—anything—for yourself. I promise, that helps, too.

5. If you're going to rent a movie, shoot for something frothy. A screwball comedy that revolves around a plucky, maribou-wearing, Champagne-sipping heroine who ends up with Cary Grant will do a whole lot more for your sense of well-being than Lars von Trier ever could.

6. Step away from the lasagna, ma'am. It is your God-given right to splurge from time to time (see aforementioned potpie), but if you've lost your health insurance, your home, your one true love, you do not want to also lose the ability to tuck in your shirt.

7. Never underestimate the power of a perfect comeback. Sometimes words aren't even necessary. I've spent years perfecting a simple smile that says, "Please know that I plan to systematically destroy you when you least expect it."

8. Let's face it, if you don't have anything in your life worth crying over, you probably don't have much of a life. So crying is definitely allowed, but (and lord knows, this is easier said than done) see if you can't keep the whining to a minimum.

9. Dwell in possibility. Only the limits of your own imagination (and a restraining order) can keep you from deciding that Benicio Del Toro is your destiny.

10. Forget about what you can't do. The other day I overheard a snippet of conversation my 6-year-old was having with her pal. "Wait," she asked, "what are my superpowers supposed to be again?" We all have superpowers (I myself happen to look very nice in navy), and we all forget them from time to time. Meet an old friend for lunch and have her make you a good, long list of yours.

10 Life Lessons You Should Unlearn:
by Martha Beck



In the past 10 years, I've realized that our culture is rife with ideas that actually inhibit joy. Here are some of the things I'm most grateful to have unlearned:
1. Problems are bad. You spent your school years solving arbitrary problems imposed by boring authority figures. You learned that problems—comment se dit?—suck. But people without real problems go mad and invent things like base jumping and wedding planning. Real problems are wonderful, each carrying the seeds of its own solution. Job burnout? It's steering you toward your perfect career. An awful relationship? It's teaching you what love means. Confusing tax forms? They're suggesting you hire an accountant, so you can focus on more interesting tasks, such as flossing. Finding the solution to each problem is what gives life its gusto.

2. It's important to stay happy. Solving a knotty problem can help us be happy, but we don't have to be happy to feel good. If that sounds crazy, try this: Focus on something that makes you miserable. Then think, "I must stay happy!" Stressful, isn't it? Now say, "It's okay to be as sad as I need to be." This kind of permission to feel as we feel—not continuous happiness—is the foundation of well-being.

3. I'm irreparably damaged by my past. Painful events leave scars, true, but it turns out they're largely erasable. Jill Bolte Taylor, the neuroanatomist who had a stroke that obliterated her memory, described the event as losing "37 years of emotional baggage." Taylor rebuilt her own brain, minus the drama. Now it appears we can all effect a similar shift, without having to endure a brain hemorrhage. The very thing you're doing at this moment—questioning habitual thoughts—is enough to begin off-loading old patterns. For example, take an issue that's been worrying you ("I've got to work harder!") and think of three reasons that belief may be wrong. Your brain will begin to let it go. Taylor found this thought-loss euphoric. You will, too.

4. Working hard leads to success. Baby mammals, including humans, learn by playing, which is why "the battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton." Boys who'd spent years strategizing for fun gained instinctive skills to handle real-world situations. So play as you did in childhood, with all-out absorption. Watch for ways your childhood playing skills can solve a problem (see #1). Play, not work, is the key to success. While we're on the subject...

5. Success is the opposite of failure. Fact: From quitting smoking to skiing, we succeed to the degree we try, fail, and learn. Studies show that people who worry about mistakes shut down, but those who are relaxed about doing badly soon learn to do well. Success is built on failure.
"If all my wishes came true, right now, life would be perfect"

6. It matters what people think of me. "But if I fail," you may protest, "people will think badly of me!" This dreaded fate causes despair, suicide, homicide. I realized this when I read blatant lies about myself on the Internet. When I bewailed this to a friend, she said, "Wow, you have some painful fantasies about other people's fantasies about you." Yup, my anguish came from my hypothesis that other people's hypothetical hypotheses about me mattered. Ridiculous! Right now, imagine what you'd do if it absolutely didn't matter what people thought of you. Got it? Good. Never go back.

7. We should think rationally about our decisions. Your rational capacities are far newer and more error-prone than your deeper, "animal" brain. Often complex problems are best solved by thinking like an animal. Consider a choice you have to make—anything from which movie to see to which house to buy. Instead of weighing pros and cons intellectually, notice your physical response to each option. Pay attention to when your body tenses or relaxes. And speaking of bodies...

8. The pretty girls get all the good stuff. Oh, God. So not true. I unlearned this after years of coaching beautiful clients. Yes, these lovelies get preferential treatment in most life scenarios, but there's a catch: While everyone's looking at them, virtually no one sees them. Almost every gorgeous client had a husband who'd married her breasts and jawline without ever noticing her soul.

9. If all my wishes came true right now, life would be perfect. Check it out: People who have what you want are all over rehab clinics, divorce courts, and jails. That's because good fortune has side effects, just like medications advertised on TV. Basically, any external thing we depend on to make us feel good has the power to make us feel bad. Weirdly, when you've stopped depending on tangible rewards, they often materialize. To attract something you want, become as joyful as you think that thing would make you. The joy, not the thing, is the point.

10. Loss is terrible. Ten years ago I still feared loss enough to abandon myself in order to keep things stable. I'd smile when I was sad, pretend to like people who appalled me. What I now know is that losses aren't cataclysmic if they teach the heart and soul their natural cycle of breaking and healing. A real tragedy? That's the loss of the heart and soul themselves. If you've abandoned yourself in the effort to keep anyone or anything else, unlearn that pattern. Live your truth, losses be damned. Just like that, your heart and soul will return home.

no entry

Bulan ni satu apa entry pun aku tak create lg.Sebab..lappy aku rosak dan takkan aku nak jadi penulis blog di ofis?Tak ke haru kalau ada officemate yang sibuk mengintai dan gelakkan aku sebab jadi blogger.
Nampak je ganas tapi dalam hati ada taman,ceh.Rosak reputasi aku kalau nak bagi arahan kerja nanti.
Lappy rosak,sb screen problem.Kena rm500.Hampeh,kalau guna hantar kt Compaq Service Centre,kena Rm700.
Blogger kalau dulu adalah seumpama wartawan-mengkritik dan menulis komentar bagi hal-hal yang dirasakan memberi faedah dan mengajak pembaca berfikir.
Tapi sekarang ni sesapa pun boleh menulis blog,asalkan rajin dan suka reveal kisah hidup kat orang lain.
Jadi untuk manusia macam aku yang dulu zaman remaja bercita-cita nak jadi penulis (tapi tak berjaya sebab tak berbakat langsung),bolehlah guna blog ni untuk menulis secara sukarela biarpun takder sapapun nak baca melainkan diri sendiri jua.
Lepas tu aku obses nak tgk trafic flow blog aku..haha hari ni berapa orang view,konon macam popular blog lah.Masalah kronik ni.Untuk pembaca blog aku,terima kasih sebab sudi jenguk hatta sesaat cuma.Mungkin nak tgk tuannya cukup waras ke tak,tu belakang kira.

Dah bulan Jun,apa azam yang dah tercapai?Sepatutnya dah mission accomplish dua tiga azam ataupun separuh dah tercapai.Aku??hehe adalah yang dah tercapai.Cuma nak increase saving tu yang agak sukar melainkan pi korek saving semedang.


In my mood to detoxince my body
Been fasting for 3 days.
My meal to break my fasting is something like nicoise salad..
Then,revolution nak kurus..yang ni tengah diusahakn.Oh God,aku asyik makan,makan dan makan sahaja.Meeting,makan.Gathering,makan.Keje,makan.Sampai satu tahap aku rasa diri aku macam tong pengisar  makanan dah.Seluar jean pun agak ketat dan baju aku yang seksa-seksa pun dah risau nak pakai.
Jadi,sendiri mau ingat ok,bulan ni aku plan nak buat detoxin.Dah berjaya seminggu.Asik makan salad dan daun mengalahkan kambing.Pastu makan sandwich je...konon..semestinyaaku nak jadi kurus mcm dulu balik.Body tone dan ala-ala Pamela Anderson gituuu.
Dan yang bestnya,bila aku berazam macam ni,body boleh terima dan taklah rasa lapar macam orang gila.Mind is the most power tool,it tell the body to adapt the situation.
Then,azam nak ikuti kelas aerobik secara berkala..hmmmpppeh  yang ni pun satu lagi.Dah 2 bulan aku tak pi kelas..sebab?balik keje,tengok TV dan membuta jek.Tak ada gaya hidup yang sihat langsung..tapi berangan  nak body macam celebrity hollywood.
