I got fed up with my credit card of 10 years with the same bank.
It is due to expire on Apr this year.
I then decided to sign up from another bank.
I downloaded the form and prepare all the necessary supporting documentation.
Since the bank is just like walking distance from my office, then I just drop by and pass my application in envelope to the banker there.
I was told the lady in charge was on break time.
I asked for the in charge person name and inform that lady to pass to her.
The same day the lady called and said the form is not the correct one.
I told her I downloaded from their website.
She told me there is a new form.
Fair enough! I asked her to email to me.
She said she will right after she put down the phone.
Evening back home, check my email there were no form coming through.
The next day waited again.
Her phone always engaged. No way to connect to her.
No way I am going to walk there again just for one bloody form when they don't have a courtesy to update their website.
The next day, I feel that I had enough!
I walk to the bank to retrieve all my personal supporting documents.
I determined to withdraw my application since there were no form and they are like not interested to have me as their customer.

I walk in the bank ...and was told to meet her right at the end of that room.
When I introduce myself politely with a smile on my face....
That Woman (cannot call her Lady anymore) with a stone face said this to my face....

Woman : aaaarrrr...the form ?
Me : Yes. I am waiting for your email but it seems that nothing came from your side. Can I have my personal supporting document so I could bring my application elsewhere ?
Woman : nahhhhh.... (with that bloody rude face)

Seriously, this bank just lose one potential customer.

The same day, I wrote my complaint through their website and request them to upgrade their customer service and how I felt to that rude incident. I also mentioned they just lose one potential customer because their staff just treated me as if I am worthless. I also give my piece of mind to lecture them on how competitive bank industries nowadays.Sales people are dying to sign up people for credit card.It just I am one person who are particular and chose to walk in and sign direct with bank rather than signing up at the road show or on the street. Your bank staff treated me like....damn!
If she know who she just lost...she freak out! I am good paymaster and spender. You just lose me! How your management should re act now? Damn!!!

After 2 days, I received call from the branch manager of the bank personally. He apologise for the incident. He said he will email the credit card form personally and will drop by my office to collect it personally at whatever time convenient. 

Sorry to say, NO THANK YOU!

As I said I put my application elsewhere who will treat me better!
That staff of yours , please teach her how to smile at least.
Smile won't cost her a dime!

I just replied his email and said noted and thank you. That it! You will not hear from me again!

Lady : "Ya lor...cannot like that like mad dog all sweat and tears ..oh i forgot blood money too..cause pms every month ma..."

Me : " Ya ya...blood money"
Lady and me laugh out loud....trying to hide both worrisome on what to do if not working.

Then both of us silence for a while...busy thinking...what to do after not working.
Then ...

Me : " Aiyahhh!!!! cannot be we continue life waking up...donno where to go newspaper..then do what??? watch korean drama ar???"

Last weekend, I was like craving for red velvet cakes.
When it come to cakes...I am very picky.
I don't eat just any matter how delicious it is.
I have certain cakes that will suit to my classy or so attitude problem huh?
That is why...when it come to birthday...friends around will have problem with my birthday cakes...and I prefer with no cakes.

Oh well...the story for this post was about my craving...
I found this cafe opposite Merchato, Pavillion.
Newly open call Chapter Two.
Just a humble small cafe.
They serve fresh red velvet cakes.
I seriously give this Red Velvet Cake at Chapter Two Pavillion....5 stars!
So generous with my Stars!!!!
This Red Velvet Cakes seriously bake with love and passion.
The cake texture...really moist and solid. Not dry and crumble type and not too spongy.
If that passionate baker could add in more cocoa powder in the will be more KICK!
Its not sweet and you need to eat it with delicious cream cheese.
Cream cheese has that clean taste and refreshing.
Not the normal cream cheese that give you that yucky feeling after one bite.
I enjoy every moment of this red velvet cake at Chapter Two, Pavillion.
Thank God! Chinggu stop me...if not this greedy fella sure go order another slice of this red velvet cake....muahahahaha...

Chapter Two @ Pavillion
Delicious Slice of Red Velvet Cake ...bake with passion and love
Refreshing Cappucino with love art...
What else you need???
Lovely tea time... 5 stars!!!


Same day...just like less than hour after my first slice of Red Velvet cake at Chapter Two , Pavillion.
I went to ParkaMaya @ Fahrenheit 88 and found this Coffee Stain Cafe.
They serve Red Velvet Cake.
I decided to try theirs.
mmmmm... my verdict for Coffee Stain Cafe , Red Velvet Cake.
Cake to dry and crumble...and taste as if lack of some ingredients.
Cream Cheese...too thick taste and sweet...the feeling like you don't want to have another bite.
Just not my taste!!!
I give 2.5 stars!

There you go.... 2 slices of red velvet cakes....does this fulfill my craving????

Chapter Two, Pavillion...I will visit you again for more....

Have a good weekend all!!!! live surrounding with lots of loves  always...

I love to read fairy tales...most fairy tales I read end with...and they live happily ever after.

When my friend announce she found her love and on the way to wedding thinking was like...and they live happily ever after.

When my friend said her bf is getting back together with her after long ugly break thinking was....and they live happily ever after.

Too naive... imagine that there will only be happiness ahead.

In reality, that happily ever after ending is just a mere single moment in a never ending story.
I need to live out the remaining part of that story....and this is life story!

I am not living in fairy tales but as reality's life main character.
I am the lead actress in my own life story.

The life story that I don't even know what moment may be waiting for me....

This is a show where the celebrities Dad brings their kids on trip.
They have to cook for the kids too.
One of the Episode..the dad cook this omelette and add in seaweed on top..then he flipped it over to become half mood shape.

My attempt to fry my own seaweed omelette.....

LEE MIN HO FAVOURITE FOOD nicely done..hor???

I am proud of myself....


OMO!!!! Oh My God!!!!
This is what happened after my attempt to flip it into half moon shape...and I am ashamed of myself because my omelette turn into burnt omelette...haissshhhhh!!! should have just dial dominospizza!!!!

I am glad today is Saturday!!!
Enjoying morning black coffee after morning running...totally my style!!!!

Yesterday, I feel I took the longest lift ride down from 20th floor.

There was this couple in the lift together with me.
They really made me feel like I am 'Lamp Post'!

I will refer them as Boy and Girl...

Boy : Cutie Pie! where you want to go for dinner?
(Pie Comel! mana awak nak makan malam ni?)

Girl : Ah! Pumpkin! you choose la... (with very babyish tone and she really made my hair strand stand still)
(Ah Labu! awak pilih la....)

Boy : you choose la...
(awak pilih la...)

Girl : aloooooooooo..... (she made this sound with the nasal voice ok...and it was damn long..aloooooo)

Boy push girl and girl push boy and kekekekekekeke sounds of childish giggle from both of them.

I may sounded a bit jealous because they have each other....but seriously....I keep thinking myself as Ally Mcbeal... you know that comedy series in year 1997..and that famous Calista Flockhart...that lunatic witty lawyer who always imagine herself singing Broadway.

Serious, when both cutie pie and pumpkin talking to each other...I feel like singing " Only You " to them......or should I start singing and dance like that Kpop Girl Group...may be that A Pink, No No No song???

Seulpeohajima no no no honjaga anya no no no
Eonjenanana naege hangsang bichi dwae jun geudae
Nae soneul jabayo ije jigeum dagawa gidae
Eonjena himi dwae julge

Here goes another lunatic post from me... :)

Have a good weekend all!!!!

I am at this stage...reaching to the eruption level.
I hope I don't explode that bad...
Trying my best to control my speech...not to hurt people..not to make enemy...
Trying my best to love instead of hate...
Trying my best to control my bluntness....

Arrgggghhhhhh!!! this is killing me softly!

I am praying hard my temper don't explode and make me an ugly person.
I am praying hard ....I don't regret on my act!

By holding all this ...I think ...I am going crazy...the anger is like boiling hard!
I wanna let it go...but I keep thinking about it and this make me more angry!

Seriously, I am not adorable when I am angry!

step 1 : Chestnut
you can buy the pack chestnut from hypermarket or 7 Eleven.

Step 2 : Crushed chestnut until become like this
I don't have food processor...and I am lazy to wash my blender.
I just put all chestnut in plastic bag, then took my hammer...repeat again hammer...just hammer it down..crushed it until like that! I have good time crushing this chestnut...good to release stress with that hammer!!

Step 3 : standby disposable plastic glove...then make that chestnut powder into small balls like that....but mine hor...not small ball...make it big ball because I want to finish it soonest possible..impatient!!!

Step 4 : rolled over your chestnut balls with your favorite flavor. In my case , I have black sesame and soy bean powder I rolled my chestnut ball onto that two flavor powder.

Mind that ball shape...not that Artistic to make everything so perfect round....hehehehee this is the impatient type of ball...made by impatient woman!!!
As long as this is edible!!!

If you have that cupcake paper bowl will be nice to put the ball in it...look presentable..but I don't have that!
If you like your chestnut ball look pretty...can cut jujube to small pieces then decorate it nicely on top. I have it but...too lazy to cut into small will go into my stomach...why bother to make it so damn pretty...muahahahaha...

There you healthy chestnut snack!

Where did I learned this?

I watched Joo Won made this in Happy Together Late Night Cafeteria Ep much of Korean Variety show influence...hor!!!
