1. crush the OREO cookies into very fine texture.. u can used food processor or blender for this
2. mix together the cream cheese

tambah menarik bila discount 70% so i paid about RM200++
tapi nak jadikan kisah sedih, the very next day me n family went out to run some errands - g Celcom amik SIM card baru, singgah Kajang town beli new school bag for Danial + my hubby is eyeing around to get Maman a decent secondhand car before he starts working... and i'm happily wearing da bangle.
after completing all the tasks (ceh mcm amazing race la plaks..) our final destination was The Mines.. apa lg, cari handphone baru la..
tp as soon as i got out of the car, lepas dukung Danial letak dlm stroller cos' he was asleep, i realized that my bangle was gone! cepat2 cari kut2 cicir dlm kereta... tp tade!
padahal all the time aku dgn danial duk dlm kete je masa hubby stop here and there dekat 2nd hand car-dealer.
the only time aku kuar masa g Celcom n kat Kajang beli bag Danial. I remember i still have it masa nak keluar kereta kat Kajang..
but lepas tu i'm not sure... :(
huhuhu sedih la... mmg tade mood dah time tu nak carik hp baru.
but after my hubby cakap2 skit.. ye lah somehow nnt nak kena beli gak hp cos' my old Dopod yg aku guna before my Corby dah uzur la sgt.
so at last, i got myself a Samsung Monte.. a new Samsung model.. masih hot, panas n publish price pon belum kuar.. according to orang2 kat kedai the new model just arrived last Wednesday..
ni scenario sama la mcm aku beli Corby dulu.. baru 1 week kuar.. harga promotion was RM600+ tp skang harga RM800.
in fact sampai la ni aku takleh nak register membership kat Samsung website cos' the phone model has yet to be listed for selection. it's under 'upcoming' model..
but wit all the missing things for the past few days.. it makes me think.. mmg bukan rezeki aku.. i still remember wat my mom told me. kalau dah memang Allah SWT tetapkan sesuatu benda atau perkara tu bukan hak kita, this is one way it will be taken away from us. perhaps this is one way utk membersihkan rezeki yg aku terima selama ini.. in which ada la tu portion of rezeki yg aku terima is not my right.
but at least all this happened masa bonus dah nak masuk... alhamdulillah tade la aku high and dry huhuhu. walaupon at the beginning mmg dah plan mcm2 bila dapat duit bonus tu..Apa2 pon innalillah to all the missing stuff... semoga Allah gantikan dengan yang lebih baik, insyaAllah..

I'm currently in Kuching Sarawak dan kali terakhir aku sedar yang handphone aku ada in-hand was last nite at about 7.30pm.. right before me and the team went for dinner at Top Spot.
Masa tu aku call Kak Ilya to tell her that everyone is already at the lobby waiting.
I'm pretty sure that the handphone was in my handbag all nite long and cos' i didn't take it out or use it throughout the night.
But the moment I'm back into my room, I realized that the handphone is not in my handbag.. abis punggah dah but still tak jumpa.
I went back to Top Spot in case I left it there (although I'm pretty sure I didn't)
But of course mmg tak ada la jugak..
Anyway, I know it has to be somewhere... tercicir n hidden cos' since last night until this morning, when we made calls to the number, the ringtone is available but nobody pick up..
So anybody out there who happened to read this.. especially people in Kuching, Sarawak if you stumble upon a Samsung Corby in yellow housing with a chain DELIENA dangling on it, I beg you please return it to Grand Margherita Hotel. Or you call my hubby at 012-3940918

dulu aku mmg tak pandai la nak apply eyeshadow n for ppl wit 'mono lids' like me, rasa mcm sesia je la nak letak eyeshadow cos' right da moment kitorg bukak mata, it's like.. ada pakai eyeshadow ke?? mane2?? it just dissapeared... hehe
but dat was years ago until few years back when i first stepped into MAC store in KLCC... for once aku nak tau how exactly one can do smokey eye look..
nice.. kan?? good for MAC, from the 1st day dat i step into the outlet, they managed to won over my heart with the customer service n not to mention the wonderful products. the lady promoter was great n provides good advice ever. from that point on, aku dah tak penah rasa takut2 nak apply eyeshadow :)
tapi aku pon penah rasa bad experience wit MAC. it was in year 2008 if not mistaken.. i went to MAC MidValley one Saturday to get myself a turquoise, teal kinda eyeshadow. Normally once a person walk into da store, a promoter would greet and assist you. But for me, masa mula2 aku masuk tu none of the promoter approach me... nak kata org tgh ramai tak jugak, cos' only one customer is having a make over n another lady yg tgh dekat kaunter. plus me, ada 3 customers masa tu.. n few of the promoters were just hanging around at one corner. aku tgh nak cepat masa tu, so all by myself, i chose the color dat i want and pick one terus je pegi dekat cashier to make payment. n still masa tu tade org nak layan.. so makcik sudah hangin, aku pon bersuara la -HELLO, I'M PAYING HERE...
pastu ada la sorang minah ni dari belakang, cepat2 keluar n apologize.. so nak dijadikan kisah, aku pilih color AQUADISIAC but the cashier pack the wrong eyeshadow instead which was HUMID (aku rasa it belongs to da lady customer yg sorang ni) n i just realized it was the wrong eyeshadow masa dlm kereta on the way balik. so definitely aku tanak patah balik kan.. a bit frustrated but the wrong shade was nice too.. so belasah je la.. cuma few days later i still have to get the right color n just pick Maybelline eyeshadow at one of the Guardian pharmacy.
i dont want to make a big fuss to MAC but a couple of weeks later i got a phone call from MAC customer service to confirm my contact details n asking whether i'm enjoying their products. dah ko tanya kan.. so aku pon jawab la pasal the bad experience at MidValley outlet. so the person online said that she will take note of my complaint and apologize for that. tapi aku tak kisah dah pon masa tu.. surprisingly, the following day their marketing manager call me up. she noted about my complaint and said that this matter will be highlighted to the outlet manager because excellence customer service is something important to MAC.
yg best part tu kan... a week later tetiba je aku dapat a bouquet of flowers that arrived at office with card n free retail size AQUADISIAC eyeshadow from MAC!!! the card said apologize and signed by the marketing manager :)) suke suke suke.. for me that was the best experience ever as customer.
aku ada get few great stuff from MAC recently.. it's Stacked 1! and Stacked 2! of the crush metal pigments of Spring Season... dah lama aku aim pigment ni, n the colors are great plus worth the money la. but at first aku nak carik eyeshadow ELECTRA, unfortunately it was out of stock :(
dah tu bila tgh tgk2 pigment, ternampak la da Stacked... dan sememangnya aku suka gila shades in gold so terus la sambar.. tak cukup satu, both Stacked aku cekup hehe
Oh ye sila abaikan background botol air n fries Carl's Jr tu ye.. makcik tgh tak sabar lepas bawak balik rumah terus shoot gambar ni kat atas meja makan :))
As for the turquoise bangle tu, itu bukanlah free gift yg dtg bersama2 product tersebut ye, tp cuma bangle yg aku pakai that day dgn tujuan nak mengglamerkan gambar yg di ambil..
last week plak aku telah pegi ke MAC Sunway Pyramid utk mendapatkan plush lipgloss (lupa nak beli masa beli pigment itu hari.. and again, plush lipgloss in AMPLE PINK is out of stock! (asyik out of stock je kat Pyramid ni.. sale diorg laju agaknye??).
I was just hanging around, killing time before 2.30pm movie (How To Train Your Dragon was superb!!!) so aku suh la promoter tu demo how to do shading n which color would look great on my skin..as usual, these ppl really know what they do n suddenly pipi aku yg tembam ni jadi kurang tembam bila dah buat shading.. i likeee
so aku pon grab few other things as well i.e few brushes to add into my current collection, sheertone blush for shading purposes, kohl eyeliner in SMOLDER, lipliner in DERVISH, n the wonderful eye n lip makeup remover (double thumbs up for this product - the best so far)
Despite of my obsession with MAC, there was one product that I'm not happy with i.e LUNA eye base.. it sucks big time! it makes my eyeshadow creasing, it's too light for my skin and it doesn't makes blending easily. There are few other brand that I found works better and does wonder for me besides MAC i.e ELIANTO's eye primer, URBAN DECAY primer portion (5 stars!), RED EARTH's liquid eyeliner (sturdy brush tip that glides easily on my lid!) and CYBERCOLORS eyebrow brush (works like magic!)
Aku baru je order few palettes of eyeshadow from eBAY... satu dah sampai n the quality is great and it's really a value for money! nanti aku citer lg di lain episode ya!

Me and hubby has decided since last year that we need to send Danial to school this year.
But due to my 'domestic problem' we have to defer the plan until the right time come.
So last two weeks we decided to enroll him into Harmony Montessori Child Home near our home.
Danial mmg selalu excited when talking about school.
He would keep on asking when he can go to school.
But when he realized that we going to enrol him for good.. dia dah start cakap - "Danial tanak pegi school lah"
Being his mom n knowing the inside out of my kid of course I have tons of concerns that I hope the teachers could deal with... Not that I'm freaking out or something but this is going to be a totally new experience for Danial since he has never stay in nursery before.
I wanted him to join school not so much for him to learn but to build his social skills n be more independent (being an only child n with maid at home, he got pampered too much!)
Not to mention to encourage him to response back in English when we talk to him... duk rumah dgn maid of course bantai cakap melayu jek..
After talking to the principal she let us to send Danial 2 days earlier FOC for him to familiarize himself.
So the 1st and 2nd day, my hubby took care of everything since he was on leave.
Since both of us is working we have arrange a transportation back n forth for Danial and he'll be taking the transport effective 1 April 2010.
I took over the 'pain-staking' task for today and tomorrow cos' dear hubby is started working today and Danial would have to adjust himself with the transportation.
Nervous myself, the morning routine went well cos' Danial is an early bird so takde problem nak bangunkan n siapkan dia pagi2.
But from the teacher's n hubby's feedback for the couple of days ago, Danial still cries on and off after we sent him to school.
And my weakness is that - I could not tahan if he's crying in front of me... i would cry too!!!
So, how do I prepare??
since his transportation will arrive between 7.40-7.50 am, I've started bring him outside at about 7.35am.
Dah tau yg dia nak pegi sekolah, the drama begins... he started crying, cranky, refuse to put on his shoe..
"Danial tanak pegi la ma.. Danial nak tgk tv" - crying :(
"Remember wat mama said, if u don't cry today mama belikan toy... u tell me what u want, n the toy will be waiting when u come back" - pancingan.. inilah gunanya borong toys during w/house sales n keep few away from him. Untuk digunakan di saat2 begini :))
So, when the car came by, they were 3 kids inside the car already. At the moment he saw, 2nd episode begins.. he hold my leg, pull my hand n refuse to get into the car.
Pn Lina - the driver, greeted us n bubbly, open the door and all the kids started saying hi and all..
But Danial cries even more and didn't let go of my neck when I put him inside the car :((
I just relax and try to pacify him.. Pn Lina said, nvm just leave him like that n he'll be fine..
"Mama ikut la.. mama ikut la... huhuhu" - crying while making some space next to him dengan harapan aku ikut sekali...tsk :( tahan air mata je masa ni.. tp mampu nak gelak2 lg (cover line weh)
I closed the door and the car left with Danial crying looking at me... moment captured... n I couldn't erased it from my mine.. it breaks my heart seeing him crying :((
I am positive n know that this is the best for him.
Tapi mak mana yg sanggup tinggalkan anak... kena plak bila dia menangis when u leave.. - accept those mom who throw away their babies, even binatang tak buat camtu (semoga Allah membalas perbuatan kamu syaitan yg bertopengkan manusia)
It's already 1 hour since he left... his school ended at 12.15... I hope he'll be fine.. ya Allah, Kau lindungi lah anak ku dan permudahkan lah segala urusannya di dunia dan akhirat Aminn..
