This is for you.....

Here’s a post about a simple lady,
Trying her hand at writing a story.

On the blog, Nuffnang's contest is seen visibly
Decided to try out, hopefully it's worthy.

First, from Realmart, I have to select a gift,
Then to decide whom shall I give.

Scratching my head almost the whole day,
Through endless choices, I searched my way,
Finally, Emergency Light, the gift that made my day

Dedicate it to dragon, a true friend I treasure,
Whose friendship no one can ever measure,
For he shines like a jewel during the darkest night,
Making every moment, every second ever so bright.

So, my fellow bloggers, what are you waiting for,
Click on Nuffnang Gift Ideas Contest and check out more.

P/S : I want to take this opportunity to thanks dragon for introducing me to the world of blogging. From here, I got a chance to know lots of wonderful blogger friends........YES, it's YOU. To all of you, thanks for your continuous support :)......

My Cherished Memories

People said 'A picture is worth a thousand words'. For me, a picture captured my most cherished memories. It is like pausing the time at that very moment and captured everything into a picture. Like an external 'hard disk' that kept the memories in place since the space in my brain is kinda 'limited' :).

YH asked me to sort out our previous trip photos cause he wants to have it developed. Ever since owning a digital camera, we have never really get the hard copy into the photo album anymore. The most that we did was getting it downloaded and burned into CDs. Hmm....while going thru those photos, lots and lots of sweet memories came flooding back.

Mom and me on the way to Lake Tahoe
One of the stops at Lake Tahoe. A very beautiful place
YH and me at Sausalito
Snoopy Land (Santa Rosa - somewhere near to where YH was staying at that time)
One of the trees in Redwood Reserve
Reno - just like a mini Las Vegas
Lombard Street, SF
Bodega Bay
Fisherman's Wharf, SF
Palace of the Fine Arts. Hey, we were not taking off our shirt ok, just adjusting it for the next picture. Ha ha. This place is famous to the local folks as a place to take their wedding photos. Nice beautiful buildings around here.

Ok..ok, GET BACK! GET BACK! I am still stuck at San Frans..ha ha. Better continue my pictures sorting before YH get back and start to nag me on the project which I have delayed since last year :)............

Cisco Certification

IT is the field that I selected when I first consider to further my study. Why did I select this subject? It was mainly because during that time, this subject was really well-known and I know that there are a lot of career opportunities for those IT graduates. With technologies advancement, almost all companies are running with the help of computers, be it for documentation or in house applications specifically for the company.

There are a lot of subjects that you can learn from IT. It could be hardware, software, networking, database etc. In the market itself, you can come across various types of IT related jobs. You could be an IT programmer, system analyst, network analyst, server or database administrator.

Being in a job dealing with IT myself, I found that having a degree in IT alone is not enough. The technology is advancing everyday, thus we need to find a way to keep ourselves updated with the latest IT information. One of the ways is thru training and certification.

So where can you look for those certification? Try visiting Cisco and learn more on how you can get Cisco certification. This site offers you various certifications related to IT, from entry to specialist. You can select whichever subjects that you are interested, whether it is related to your current job or for future career advancement. Having equipped yourself with the knowledge you get from Cisco certification, you will bring more values to the organization that you are currently working with and you may stand a bigger chance in getting the job you want from prospective employers.

Thousand Apology

Hello all, for those whom may be coming looking for new post, I am sorry to disappoint you cause I will not be able to upload them for these few days. I came home to stay with my parents since last week (thought of staying with them for a few days before I start work) and I can hardly online here (we don't have streamyx over here). When on my lucky days (like today) when I am able to grab the line, it will be 'crawling' like a snail :(.

So will only be able to post new things and visit your site when I am back to Penang :). Before I got cut off again, I need to quickly upload this post :). Well, see you guys later ya (most probably next week) :).

Take care everyone :)

Genting Highlands Trip #1 - Cable Car

For those who have been to Genting, you will know that there are 3 ways to reach Genting City, by car, by bus or by cable car aka sky liner.

Well, since there were too many of us that day so we gotta separate into 2 groups. I went up by car while my sis took the cable car. So, I past my camera to her knowing that the scenery from the cable car will be much much nicer.


So, here are some of the pics that my sis took. Thank sis...too many of them, can't post all, just pick a few to share here :)

Billboard

Hello All...Am back. Where did I go? Went to KL to visit my sis and took my parents to Genting Highlands. Am really tired but wanted to post something here :)

When you cruise along the highway / expressway, do you take notice of the billboard? If yes, do you really look at what is being advertised? Well, for me, when there is something interesting that catch my eyes, then I will look at those billboard.

Find that, nowadays, the advertisers are getting more and more innovative in order to get the attention of passer-by, consumers etc. Happened to spot those cute and eye-catching billboard when we were along one of the KL highways. Sorry ya, if those photos are not clear coz the sky is getting darker and darker (about to rain) at that time.

I saw this billboard first. Silly me, from far, I really thought someone is standing on top of the billboard :)
I know this is not clear but we were driving kinda fast so it is hard for me to take the pic. It was a bear on the top right side.

Well, we have the same sort of billboard in Penang too. Along the Jelutong expressway.

So, do you see this type of billboard? If yes, do share it ya :)

Mizi Bistro

When you read the title, guess you have known that this post it's gonna be about food again. Yeh, you are right. Went to have western food at this restaurant (Mizi Bistro) at New World Park, Penang during YH's birthday.

I made the 'hong kai tan' (simply translates to red egg) for him. Kinda conservative right? Ha ha. Some of you may be asking how we ended up with 2 cakes. Well, one was from by us (the left one) while the other one from his insurance agent who happened to know his birthday from the form she was to collect that day :). So sweet of her.

They have À la carte and set on their menu but if you pay additional RM6 or RM9 (forgotten which one) when you order the À la carte, then you will get to enjoy the soup, drink and dessert of the day (aka set lor).

I had this. Pan Fried Salmon
Combo set (Lamb chop, fish and chicken)
Seafood Kebab
Seafood King
salmon and steak
One of the soup available in the menu (pumpkin soup)

Well, the taste? Emm...normal western food, so so only lor.

Note : Sorry for some of the blur and bad quality photos. Ha ha, it was kinda dark in there and we are too hungry to hold the camera very still to take those pics :).....ha ha

My wish : Good Health & Happiness to everyone

Yesterday was a really happy day for me. Finally, after several months, my treatment completed. When I stepped out from the hospital, the sky was blue and clear just like the one below.

I don't really know how to describe my feeling that time. I am happy, thankful and grateful for being here today and enjoy life as it is. Though I have said this before in my previous post, I wanted to say this again here : I want to thank everyone, my hubby, my family, YH's family, relatives, friends, colleagues, doctors, nurses and hospital staff for your caring gesture and for being there always. I know some of you have been praying for me, I sincerely thank you for your prayers.

For now, I am just looking forward to this :

There is sunshine after the Rain
May there be happiness after the pain
