July 2012 - Narcissism is Necessary

hey it’s my birthday!

Exactly one year ago I was in Bangkok. Today I am in Bangkok again :)

This is one of my favourite cities and I can’t be any happier to celebrate my birthday here.

At first I thought I was only tagging along Gareth on his company retreat in Krabi. However, while having a casual chat with one of his colleagues, she innocently asked me about our trip to Bangkok.

I was like,”Eh no lah. Where got…we are heading home”. She looked confused.

Anyway, I told G about our conversation and then he confessed. He forgot to inform his colleagues not to mention BKK as he was too caught up with work lol.

But it’s okay, I am really happy :) I love you so much babyboobydoo. I love you more than myself.

To be honest, I am really excited about getting older. Yes I may not have the effortlessly flawless skin I had when I was a teenager anymore but I am continuously acquiring other things like empathy, humility,peace of mind and most importantly, love.

I am learning to love myself so I can effectively love my friends and family back. Love is not just sharing or gifting of wealth/material, but sharing good, caring, kind, genuinely positive energies in form of words and thoughts and and actions. And sharing of time too, something I seriously need to improve on (sorry mum).

I have learnt to let go of negative influences (people, gossips, complaints, etc) whenever possible and wow, it is absolutely therapeutic.

I am so glad at this point in life I have finally discovered this way of living. I wish I had discovered this earlier so I would have more practice but hey, better late than never. It’s never too late to accept something good in your life anyway.

# – Checked in to our beautiful room. Unrelated…just want you to see the bed. Love it!

Thanks for all the nice wishes and I hope you are as excited about growing up as I am too :D

Blogging from Krabi!

Hello from Krabi! I just woke up and now enjoying a cup of tea on our balcony.

# – Pick me up.

This trip is Gareth’s company retreat actually, but I get to join because I satisfy his company’s conditions of either being a spouse or having co-habitating for more than two years, and being straight/gay.

# – View from the lobby upon arrival at the resort yesterday.

# – Hanging out on our balcony after checking in. OK, just an excuse to post this because I look deceptively slim albeit a little sombre.

We slept most of yesterday away, waking up at dinner time for some local beef noodles.

Not before we nick some wifi at the lobby though.

# – Data addicts.

image

We have complimentary wifi in the room now though so yay!

# – First Thai meal. So delicious!

image

Then we snacked on stuff we got from 711. Even in a small place like Krabi, the sheer variety of stuff pwns our 711 in KL.

# – Munchies.

image

Found a hilariously named beauty product too.

# – Ahemm.

Well, right now we are contemplating lunch options – whether to have a beach picnic trying out more goodies from local 7-11 or a bus ride to town for some local food.

Decisions, decisions!

Dedicated to Tom Cruise.

I know exactly how the girls that love Robert Pattinson feel because I felt exactly like that after I had watched Interview with the Vampire (which coincidentally got me to hate Brad Pitt for many, many years for being a wussy, rat blood drinking vampire. For the record, I don’t hate Brad Pitt anymore).

At 10 years old I was in love and wanted to be a vampire.

A couple of years later, I watched Jerry Maguire and I decided that I wanted to become Tom Cruise’s wife. Instead of hating Brad Pitt I chanelled all my energy into hating Nicole Kidman instead.

Also, around the same time, I had just gotten my first access to the world wide web so I was able to find a lot of information about Thomas Cruise Mapother IV (which explains why my old hotmail address is kimberly_mapother@hotmail.com).

It was also the time where I found out about Scientology. Even at that age I was trying to figure out how I could become Tom Cruise’s wife. The best chance for me was to either become an actress or become a Scientologist. I quickly realised that the latter was far more achievable. I signed up at a Scientology website for more information.

A few weeks later, I got a stack of documents sent to my house from a Church of Scientology. In the documents were information about Scientology, how to set up a church in Malaysia and how I could spread the wonderful teachings of L. Ron Hubbard. I was 12.

Luckily for you all, I was too lazy otherwise today I could have been a badass cult leader with Tom Cruise as my husband, of course.

# – I don’t own this one.

I admit, my affections have been divided through the years….Christian Bale in American Psycho, Alex Skarsgaard in True Blood.

Lets not forget my latest object of lust – Michael Fassbender in Shame. Why? Imagine a naked man standing with his back to you. Now, can you seen the end of his flacid fun sausage between his legs??? IMAGINE IT! CAN YOU!?

Because with Michael Fassbender, you can.

Sorry, I digressed.

I know in the past few years I have sort of denied liking Tom Cruise because of his OTT behaviour but deep down inside I still hold a torch for the man. And for heaven’s sake I have never even caught a glimpse of his naked butt!

Anyway I don’t know why I’m blogging this randomness, maybe because I feel a little sorry for Tom after reading about his impending divorce. I feel so bad for Tom I just want to hug him. If you’re reading this Tom Cruise, I want to hug you and stroke your hair. Still, always and forever.

# – Gareth made this for me some years ago <3



++++ADVERTORIAL BREAK+++++

I was at the National Zoo last Friday for the launch of Celcom First Voice plans, a range of superior voice plans that will let Celcom customers (such as myself!) step up to more innovative and advantageous services for an optimum customer experience.

Pretty good stuff, the plans have features such as real time calculation of charges, auto upgrade of lower rate when usage hits the next tier, smart menu and many more. Check out for yourself at Celcom’s website.

# – Launch of Celcom First Voice.

In conjunction with the launch, Celcom has adopted an elephant named Teriang, a 32-year-old Asian elephant that symbolically represents the new direction of Celcom First – power, loyalty, and a desire to always reach for the top.

# – Hi Teriang! Or “Accidentally Happy”, according to Celcom’s CEO, Dato’ Sri Shazalli Ramly.

The most awesome thing about the adoption of Teriang is that RM0.10 from every new customer of Celcom First’s voice plans will be contributed to a fund for Teriang’s upkeep. How nice :)
