Narcissists

As proud as a peacock and that's exactly how we describe a narcissist. Never in my life  I  thought that I would like to write anything about this. Even though last year when one of my friends had opened a discussion about this issue on facebook, I didn't join in.

For me, it's natural for us to possess some amount of narcissism just to boost our self-esteem but when somebody is too obsessed about himself/herself, it becomes so annoying...not that I'm jealous of that person or anything the like, it's just plain simple pain in the neck to be facing this narcissist almost everyday in my working life......The recurring incidents that I experinced in the  past few weeks have prompted me to write this post...



I have come to a point that I feel I would burst every time she opens her mouth coz every single word she utters would be about her, her and her, and of course she is always right. Not only that she talks highly of herself but she also tends to look down on others .. I'm not denying the fact that this narcissist that I know is good and even one of the best around but I'm also not denying the fact that most of us, her colleagues are trying to avoid her every chance we got and she'll be all alone in the future...

You can read here to learn more about narcissists...


It's a deep and all but certain truth about narcissistic personalities that to meet them is to love them, but to know them well is to find them unbearable. Confidence quickly curdles into arrogance; smarts turn to smugness, charm turns to smarm. They will talk endlessly about themselves, but when they ask about you — well, never mind, because they never do.

What my zodiac says....


I'm not the typical kind of person  who reads and believes what your horoscope says about you, but today I stumbled across my horoscope and I think I like to listen to the advice....


If you have been experiencing any problems with your health lately, follow up with a doctor's appointment. This isn't necessarily an emergency situation -- it is probably your subconscious reminding you that you need to take care of yourself! On that note, how are you doing at taking care of your emotional needs lately? There is no crime in saying no to a friend's invitation because you'd rather spend some time alone, you know. Make yourself your top priority.

Beauty Foods

The Top 10 Beauty Foods

Dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, author of Forever Young, dishes on ten foods to eat to look delicious


1. Wild Salmon: It contains essential omega-3 fatty acids that keep skin supple, hair healthy, and nails strong.

2. Pistachios: Their high levels of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat help nourish the hair and scalp.

3. Watercress: The sulfur found in this peppery green will bring strength and shine to nails.

4. Cinnamon: This spice, rich in antioxidants, stimulates blood circulation, resulting in plumper skin.

5. Olive Oil: It's a healthy fat source that guards against inflammation, which can dull your dermis.

6. Green Tea: Antioxidants called polyphenols help combat complexion woes like rosacea and wrinkles.

7. Turmeric: This spice works as an anti-inflammatory, helping to heal sun-damaged skin.

8. Blueberries: Their phytochemicals (powerful antioxidants) keep fine lines and sagging at bay.

9. Dark Chocolate: Its do-it-all flavonols smooth the skin and decrease sun sensitivity.

10. Cantaloupe: For a dewy complexion, feast on this melon, which has hydrating vitamin C and beta-carotene.

Panda & co.


It's been a very long time since I posted anything about our pets... Well, they are growing in number now and I 've lost count of the number of baby hamsters....It seems every few weeks there would be new batch of babies....most are survived, some dead and some went missing. The twins don't really care much now about the hamsters cause they are simply too many of them to be taken of and there was not enough space...I'm thinking of giving them away....
On the other hand, for the rabbit it was not as prolific as the hamsters. the first batch of babies died at birth and the second batch was only four survive out of five...now they are about one and the half months and fast growing...

This cute black  and white baby rabbit named Panda by the twins for the obvious reason




There are drinking milk in a plate (the others are Fifi, Popo and Coco)



They were allowed to play in the house a couple of weeks earlier but now all are staying outside the house together with their parents...

An enriching experience...


It had been ages since I last followed my hubby to stay at a hotel cause this year things have been different and the timing also seems to be out of synchronization with my school activities...Thus, I complained to him one day and not long after that I received a letter to attend a five-day meeting in PD. (Actually, the letter was not directed to me but I had to be there on behalf on my colleague who was also nominated to attend the other event at the same period of time)...Then, I thought that it was my chance to be away from school for a while and spend my time leisurely by the beach....





The beach and the hotel was not bad while the meeting was suck and the food was even worse...(well, I'm not complaining since we got to eat six times a day). Luckily the meeting ended earlier so i got to get back on Thursday instead of Friday. Came Friday morning, off I went to school as usual following my routine and everything went on smoothly until I was driving back home... there were endless calls from my colleagues
 (three of them). 

I wondered what seemed to be so urgent that they could not wait to see me on Monday. When I answered one off the calls (there were a few missed calls), it broke my heart to learn that they needed me to go for another five- day course beginning on Monday. One of our colleagues had agreed to go but they needed one more person to fulfill the requirement of the course. Since all three of the remaining members of our panel were having some really BIG PROBLEMS leaving their family for one whole week, I was the only option left. Even though I was just coming back and my daughter was sitting for the PMR examination, it was nothing as compared to THEIR problems....

After some serious thoughts and a series of phone calls over the weekend, finally I had come to a decision and it was almost a tearful one, I must admit, that I was going for the course. On Monday, I reluctantly went to school to wait for the driver to take us to the hotel in  afternoon as promised. Then, it was another disturbing news when the driver called my partner saying that the school van had broken down and he asked us to drive there ourselves...It gives a chill just just to think of driving in the heart of KL, what more for my partner who had just had her driving licence early this year...

The last possible option was to call my hubby at work to fetch and take us to the hotel... luckily he had agreed to it without much hassle and I'm really grateful for that...Another unlucky encounter was when we arrived at the hotel. We had to wait at the lobby for about half an hour because the registration counter by the organizers was not ready (grrr...). After a few phone calls  and negotiation by the reception, finally we were allowed to check in...

At our room, my partner found out that the hotel was just a stone throw away from SOGO shopping complex. Although it had been a long day, I had agreed to accompany her there since I had nothing better to do....Anyway, the course started at 8.30 pm and it was a good introductory slot to warm us up...

To sum up my week there, I must say that course had been very enriching and helpful to all of the participants... We enjoyed the trainers Irene, Mdm. Ho and Audrey Lim (who is also a writer) very much who had shared new techniques and approaches (even though not all are totally new) towards our teaching...My partner and I admitted that we were lucky to have come to the course, it was such a blessing in disguise and I had no regrets of going ...all the troubles we went through before coming to the course was all worth it.....The hotel might not be a bed of roses, nonetheless, the course was superb and the food was heavenly that I seriously believe that I have gained 2 kg after one week....
