Every morning when driving to work i will listen to my favorite radio channel. This morning heard about this joke…

An old man bought a parrot who is very clever and talk active. So when they arrive at home, the parrot talks non-stop able…It’s not just random rambling but the parrot keep on swearing. Startled by what come out from the parrot’s mouth, this old man just give it a warning in a hope that the parrot will stop saying those nasty words….

So day 1 past by. On the day two the parrot still keep on swearing. So on the day three, losing hope the old man warn the parrot again.

Old man: Dear parrot, you are undeniable very clever and talented. But you use your talent in a bad way. Good bird didn’t swear nor a human. I didn’t swear, so please stop it.

But the parrot just ignore it and keep on swearing non-stop.

So this time, an old man said, “Ok, enough. I swear if you didn’t stop it i will put you in the refrigerator. I’m serious this time.”

But the parrot still stubborn and keep on swearing on his face.

Old man: Ok, you force me to do this. Don’t regret it.

So, the old man took the parrot and put it in the freezer.

So in about 5 seconds, the parrot still swearing happily. Suddenly, the old man didn’t hear anything and after that he heard the parrot said on the top of his lung, “Please let me out!!! Please! Please! Please. I promise, i won’t swear anymore. Please let me out.”

So the old man open the freezer door and took the parrot out.

Old man: So, what make you change your mind.

Parrot: I promise i won’t swear anymore. I have saw what you did to the chicken. It was so horrible.

Old man: See…you know what will i do if people didn’t listen to me right?

The parrot nods, “Yes, yes, yes…i will listen to you.”

Old man: Good……

Hehehe…..i laugh unstoppable in the car…clever old man…

New addition to food list

It’s been a while. I hate to say this but every time saying that life is hectic is just like giving a reason for some thing. Don’t you think so?

Every one has their own obstacle, task and routine in life. So take it easy and enjoy life…

Went out and try the latest eating place in town.

Nasi ayam penyet. Fried chicken with herbs, varieties of vegetables and sambal

 

IMG-20140928-WA0002This is the latest edition to food list. First time tried it. Nasi kerabu with fried chicken. Too spicy for me huhuhu…Kerabu is ‘salad’ which contain raw vege and grated coconut…

So there goes my weekend…

Kimono cardigan, the new obsession

I would like to say my latest obsession is kimono cardigan. It’s very loose, comfortable and very trendy. You will always the options to wear a blouse, singlet or t-shirt underneath. And when ever you feel like you just want to wear the ‘underneath’ cloth you can always take it off.

For me kimono cardigans have a lot of benefit such as to hide that after meal bump…Yeap…this is so far why i like it! So far did an online purchase due to busy life. Not one. Or two…but three…Yes, i have never been these crazy over an outfit…

Treasure

Look!!! What have i found among hundreds of stuff…it’s Madeleine Wickham’s books. Past few weeks i had made a trip to flea market. I lurveeee….flea market. Can get a lots of stuff over there.

Usually I always go to get fresh vegetables/fruits/fish etc…but on that day i accidentally stop at the second hand books/magazine stall. There…stack among the old used books, innocently begging to bring back home was Cocktails for three…it’s Madeleine Wickham or the other name which is Sophie Kinsella. She is my favourite author.

I have read all the books she wrote using the pen name; Sophie Kinsella. My favourite  of course the Shopaholic series. That are the best.

Ok, back to the story. Quickly i pick it. and guess what? underneath are another book from the same author. Grab that also and another one underneath is also another book. Without hesitation pay it directly. It’s a steal because it’s very very cheap…
