The Sky Is Everywhere

"It's the easiest thing to be lost if you don't want to be found."

Young Adult books are kinda lame with all their "Oh my god! I was, like,...and then he was, like,..." dialogues. But right now, I'm kinda, like, loving them =p! 

Open 24 Hours

Starting today until 2nd Nov, the Dubai Mall will be opened for 24 hours straight during weekends. This includes Dubai Aquarium & underwater zoo, Kidzania, Sega Republic (an indoor theme park), the cinemas and the ice skating rink. (If adalaa parents yg bawak anak dia gi Kidzania at 3-4 in the morning, pehhh tak taulaa den nak cakap apo.) 

Personally I think it's a little extreme, kot yea pun nak increase tourism kan, but oh well, this country is known for doing 'extreme' stuff - tallest building, palm tree-shaped islands, ski resort in a mall, white water rafting in the middle of the dessert - so I shouldn't be surprised anymore. 

But just for the heck of it, maybe I should go & check out the mall at 3-4 in the morning nanti hehe.

Keluarga Iskandar

Dear SRB and I are currently totally hooked on 'Keluarga Iskandar'. Back in Msia last month, I was a bit reluctant to watch it at first coz I didn't like the obvious fact that they tiru Modern Family's mockumentary style of shooting. 

But on my last night at home, there was really nothing good on TV and I was forced to choose between some lame, trying-too-hard-to-be-funny game show featuring Raja Lawak's rejects and an episode of this Modern-Family-wannabe 'Keluarga Iskandar' series. I chose the latter coz I just couldn't bear watching all those Raja Lawak people endlessly trying to prove how they can be funny at any given situation. 

Managed to watch it till the end (Zain Ruffedge was in it - didn't know that he could act!) and you know what? It's actually a pretty good show! Agak kelakar with sempoi and true-to-life dialogues which made it soo relatable. 

The usage of 'The Silent Treatment/Layanan Senyap' after an argument - relatable. 

Lines like "Alaaa nanti last2 memang semua kena ikut cara mak jugak." - very relatable. 

"Yelah, takpelah. Biarlah mak mati sorang2..." - ohh so veryyy relatable kehkehkeh!

Dance until your feet hurt.

Act until you're William Hurt.

The Psychopath Test

"Maybe it was the trying so hard to be normal that was making everyone so afraid they were going crazy."

Whoaaa...dark & deep, huh? Thought this book was gonna cheer me up during my lonely flight back to Dubai (the intro was witty enough and when I flipped through the pages I saw a chapter on Scientology. Psychopathology and Scientology? I was intrigued hehe), but turned out I was wrong hahah! Next time, go with chick lit Rina - you will never go wrong with chick lit =p. 

But it's quite an interesting book - kinda reminds me of all those psychology classes I took in college. And it will teach you how to spot psychopaths around you or maybe evaluate yourself hoho! But don't worry, "if you're beginning to feel worried that you may be a psychopath, if you recognize some of the traits in yourself, if you're feeling a creeping anxiety about it, that means you are not one." Coz if you are one, you won't be having all these feelings at all jeng jeng jeng hehe.

I Hate Goodbyes

Said too many goodbyes for the past days - to our home, family, friends in Msia and friends in Dubai who are leaving for good pulak. Personally, I think this is what sucks the most about living abroad. You're happy & excited to live this carefree life abroad but at the same time your heart breaks when you have to leave and say goodbye to your loved ones back home. As I said many times before, you win some, you lose some.   

These mixed emotions will usually leave you feeling confused and moody and overwhelmed - all in all, not a good feeling lah. And it usually takes about a month or so for me to sort of 'stabilize' my emotions back after balik from Msia. But oh well, as The Beatles said, Oh bladi oh blada, life goes on braaa, Laa laa how the life goes onnn...

I'm beyond happy to be reunited with dear SRB after almost 3 weeks apart but I'm also beyond sad to leave this cheeky little darling after spending 1 month constantly playing with her...

But on another cheery note, it's now time to catch up with all the new fall series yeayyy! HIMYM, The Big Bang gang, the Modern Family, hope you guys don't disappoint this season!
