I cant help but Miss you

Although it has been exactly 1 month since you were no longer ours, I still miss your voice and your presence. I cant help but feel sad whenever I come back from work and you are no longer there to greet me with your meows. I miss your cute button nose and your curious eyes. I miss how you leap straight onto my lap for scratches. I miss you, little Tishu.

I hope that you are happier with your new owner. I heard that they adopted a little friend to play with you now and you are no longer locked up in a cage most of the day, free to roam the room as much as you want to. It is sad that we couldnt give you such a life, but we would if we could.

Although I know that you are much better off now than you were with us but I still wish that you are still mine. I used to feel that having you is such a burden because I worry day and night about you whenever it rains or gets too hot outside because we have no choice but to have you out on the balcony. If we could have just found you when we already have a house, you will have the whole house to yourself and I will not trade you for any other cat in this whole wide world.

isnt she pweettty? =D

With all the love, baby Tishu

Your Human

I am a Hopeless Romantic

I first cried to a movie was when I watched Armageddon (1998 film) a few years back. The famous scene where Liv Tyler was talking to Bruce Willis when he planned to stay back on the meteor to sacrifice himself for earth. I found that part extremely sad and before I knew it, I burst into tears. More like, major sobs and the most interesting part was that I couldn't understand why he had to die, probably not realising the fact that it was a movie and that movies are not real and that people do not actually die in real life compared to in the movies.

Before that happened, I always couldn't understand how some people tend to cry just by watching a movie. A Movie is A Movie and it is not real at all but it hit me that sometimes the person watching the movie might tie the story back to their life or past experiences. Therefore, they cry when it is sad and laugh when it is funny.

So, after that incident, I started feeling all these mix emotions when I am watching movies. Especially sad ones. And the worst that I've ever cried to was P.S I Love You.

I cried through ALMOST the whole show. You have no idea how much it touched me.


The movie is about how Holly played by Hilary Swank, goes through her life without her husband, Gerry played by Gerard Butler, who had just passed away from a tumour. Came Holly's birthday, she received a birthday cake which was signed off from Gerry and it came with a letter which was written to her, when he was still alive. Gerry who knew he was about to die, had plan a remarkable journey for Holly and with that, he gave her the strength to be on her own again, this time, without him by her side. A truly remarkable and touching film I found it to be, if you've not seen it, please go grab a dvd or something.

P.S I Love You is originally a book written by Cecelia Ahern in 2004 and was made a movie in 2007. I am probably gonna buy the book because I heard that it is so much more better than the movie.

I have not cried reading a novel before, probably this would be my first. :)

Tulip Fetish for Shopping

Recently, there's a surge of demand for tulip dresses. Especially those which can be found at Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Forever 21 and Zara. Most of them are printed in floral , while the rest are all made out of denim.

Well, among the rest of the shopaholics out there, I am one of those who go crazy over tulip dresses, especially tube like ones. They are simply gorgeous and to die for because the cutting of the dress instantly shapes up the body figure of a female and this drives all the girls crazy. Apart from that, the upper part of the dress has the shape of a heart or a tulip and this enhances the upper body of a female. Probably to complete the total package of an amazing female figure.


Therefore, I hope that I will be able to get myself more tulip dresses, or tops, whichever I am more in love with, to relief my itch in shopping for tulip like designs.

malaysian dogs deserve better

My heart is all broken reading about dogs on Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better. Dogs being physically and mentally abused by their owners and random strangers. Dogs being thrown out to an Island to fend for their lives. Strays which didn't survive because rescue was too late. It is heart wrenching to know that we are more than a million in Malaysia and there's only 5% of us who are dedicating our hearts to be the voice and support for these animals who cant speak for themselves.

As I was reading the articles on MDDB, it is so unbelievable that humans can be so cruel to a certain extend. Being in the working world myself, I have encountered numerous people who tend to take advantage of any given situation, even if it means breaking the law, in order to be richer or a step up from where they used to be. We might not realise it but we are no better than the carnivorous animals in the jungle which feed on their own kind in order to survive. What a world we are born into.

Here, organizations such as MDDB (Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better), PAWS Malaysia and SPCA Malaysia are trying so hard to speak and protect our human companions and on the other hand, there are more of us trying to get rid of these animals because they are like pests to certain people. My heart is all out for the people who are trying to reach the world by making a point that humans have no rights to take animals for granted or to abuse them just because they have no home. They have feelings too and we don't get to feel it because they cant speak our language.


Dogs and other animals deserve to be loved. If you have a blog or some other way you can spread an awareness such as this, please do help to do so. I hope that Malaysians will open their eyes and be ONE, as all the media are bragging about, to help each other create a better world for us to live in.

This weekend Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better will be at Trift & Green Bazaar by A Shopaholic's Den located at 32 Square. Be there to support them!

The Review of The Proposal


A brief intro:
The Proposal is a romantic comedy directed by Anne Fletcher and was officially released on June 18, 2009 by Touchstone Pictures. However, the film reached Malaysian theatres much later that its original release date.

The Proposal brings together Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock (who have worked together on a number of films before) as the 2 leading characters in the film.
Sandra Bullock plays Margaret Tate, a Chief Editor at a book company who is soon to be deported to Canada for a year. As a means of avoiding her fate, she spontaneously lies to the company’s management about her coming faux-marriage to assistant Andrew Paxton.

Ryan Reynolds plays Andrew Paxton, the hard-working, kind-hearted, assistant who is forced into the marriage scam created by his boss. He is initially reluctant, but soon takes advantage of the situation for his own career advancement.

The film then revolves around the many consequences of their actions, how Margaret Tate is forced to follow her faux fiancĂ© back to his hometown of Sitka, Alaska, slowly realizes her actions after meeting Andrew Paxton’s family and how inevitably, they end up falling in love.

What we liked…
The on-screen chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock is definitely one of the better partnerships in recent times. Not to mention the fact that The Proposal represents Sandra Bullock’s first number 1 movie in 10 years and marked her biggest opening weekend. Not bad for a simple romantic comedy.

The humorous sequences are portrayed remarkably well by Reynold’s signature comical expressions and Bullock’s sophisticated yet funny mannerisms. And you do also get a glimpse of Ryan Reynold’s and Sandra Bullock’s “physiques” in very funny fashion.

The way the 2 lead characters’ relationships develop throughout the show is also portrayed well and is one that can definitely be related to.

What we didn’t like too much…
The romantic element of the film, although existent, was just slightly insufficient to create that sense of “falling in love” for us. In a way, it felt more like a “comedy that was romantic”, than a “romantic comedy”.

Apart from that, there really isn’t much that you can fault the movie for.

If “What Happens in Vegas” is your cup of tea, then The Proposal will most definitely be one as well. It may not be as emotionally involving as say “P.S I love you”, but it is still more than worth watching.

So don’t miss out on it, and in case you do, be sure to get a DVD.

Our rating.
