Binge eating

Current mood: Emotionally f*cked up and stuffing myself silly to feel good.

I come to dread Saturdays, really! Saturdays is for cleaning the house. Well, it can stretch over the weekend or the whole week or whatevs!

I have sort of posted on the wall of "notice" for the house for "gotong royong" chores that needs to be done weekly or worst come to worst monthly. You know those sweep, mop, dust and vacuum thingy. So, apparently living with grown adults is actually a lot harder rather than staying with a bunch kids. Why, because you can't boss them around because they are so used to having their mother cleaning up for them. I mean come on, you can't possibly don't have time for anything? Maybe just one thing done from the list. Just maybe. But no!!! Hell no!

I am torn between letting the house rot and collect dirt and dust to the ground or just do the honor by checking off the "gotong royong" list. Guess which one I chose?

Anyway, I am ranting here just to keep my sanity because I know this blog is dusty anyway and am practically talking to myself. Therefore, there is no one to be "terasa" or anything. On a concluding note, hot and pretty girls are useless unless they can do housework. Ok bai!

Hot Hula Fitness

Hey hey hey! 

Besides being a Zumba Fitness and Zumba Kids instructor, I am also a certified Hot Hula instructor. My first class will be next week, so I really need to prepare well. Kinda nervous actually. I hope I can do well.

The beauty of Hot Hula is a low impact, toning and fun Polynesian inspired dance. It is a different dimension of dance fitness that I am trained for. I hope my class will like this new flavor of dance fitness.

You want to try?

Petrosains Science Show Competition 2015

Last week, I went to DBKL auditorium to support my school in the Petrosains Science Show Competition. This is our third year competing on a national level stage. On 2013, the team managed to get a special award for being the promising star. Last year, the team won first runner up. The teacher in charge of the team is Cikgu Ernest. A hardworking lad, who sit next to my table in the staff room. It is actually inspiring to see such determination in a teacher like him.

Riding on a wildcard ticket to the national level this year is a different feat since they did not win the state title in order to reach the national level. Nonetheless, they got awarded the wild ticket card and they fought back!

Our school won first place this year! The moment when the results was announced, we were just cheering so loud and I really cried. OMG, the elation!!! Being an underdog in this year's edition made us feel a bit intimidated. But we finished strong and on top! Congratulations my dear kids, the team and Cikgu Ernest has a lot to offer for the school and the community.

As for Cikgu Ernest, the last competition that I blogged about was another competition in which they emerged as a national champion. Again this time, another competition; national champion again! Two trips to KL for two different competitions and this teacher bagged two national titles. Kalau next year he is not in the Anugerah Perkhidmatan Cemerlang list, that will be a mistake. 

Saya tumpang gembira. I hope I can always be inspired and dedicated like my friend here. He is a real good teacher. Truly inspirational.

Have a good day everyone! Always be positive!

Cat Cafe Craze

So, yesterday we did an impromptu plan to visit Purradise Cat Cafe in TTDI just because during brunch after church, there was a cat who go manja-manja at our feet. Then of course it triggered the missing-the-cats-back-home feeling.

Since staying in a city especially in high rise buildings, animals are not allowed, so I kinda miss the feeling having pets around.

Here is the exterior of the shop, the signage is clear and you cannot miss it.

The cafe is on the first floor and the staircase leading to it is next to the 99 Speedmart. Even the staircase is decorated with cat images. Very cute!

I went there with the mister and my sister.

It was on a Sunday and we thought we were the first to reach there, but hey these kids started their day early with playing with cats. There are about 15 cats there. All of them are rescued cats. Some are young and playful but some are grumpy especially when they encounter loud and rowdy kids. Yeah, if I were to be the cats, I will also be hiding when there are kids around. 

I must say the decoration and layout of the cafe is very spacious and nice but to those who are allergic to cat fur, you better stay away from this place because all the bean bags there is actually full of cat fur. Haha. Anyway, if you are allergic to cat fur you would not even want to go this kind place anyway right. So, it's alright.

Manja manja with cats. The cafe provides free drinks of your choice at MYR 15 plus an hour to spend time with the cats. They have to limit the amount of time so that the cats won't be stressed out. And hey, with the steady stream of people coming in after noon on a weekend, this place is buzzing but I guess the cats won't be so happy. Everybody wants to pet and play with them and some people are just ignorant on how the cats will be feeling if they are forced to do something. Give them a break will you? They are not stuffed toys. At some point, I think this is more like cat prostitution (minus the sexual aspect of it).

This is Snowy, one of the cats who is playful but very much a diva too.

It is a nice cat cafe but if you plan to come on weekends, just come early. The place is busy on weekends and it is always parents bringing in their children to play with the cats.
