Happy 38th to Our Buddy - Fikar (^^)

I bet you should know what’s going on here once you see the subject of this post. Yeah, it was one of our BELOVED buddies – Fikar’s birthday yesterday!! He was asking why four BIG candles (one big candle symbolizes the increment of 10years in age) for him on his blueberry birthday cake?! Hehehe… This was just a birthday joke for him as we regarded 38th as 40th after rounding the number. Anyhow, I’m sure our buddy won’t care or even worry so much about his age. Instead, the age is simply a number to him anyway. He is absolutely an optimistic person, isn’t he?!

We celebrated Fikar’s birthday during dinner at Café Caffe in Perling, Johor. This was my first time to be there and the dishes served were really delicious!! *thumb-up*
Low ordered lasagne which did remind him about his university life in USA while Fikar chose baked fish wrapped in paper for his dinner. The soup tasted yummy while the fish was well marinated with special ingredient too. I had the seafood calzone for my selection which was really big enough for my stomach. Fikar and Low helped me to finish it at the end after they had done with their own dishes. The content (fresh seafood mixed with tomato, mushroom and onions) was slightly stir-fried before wrapped with bread for baking. We loved the tender taste of the bread and we thought it could be purely handmade bread as the taste was totally different from those made by bread machine. Some more the cheese was sticky and viscous too and thus, we kept playing around with this gummy cheese before we ate.

Here come to the posing show from these free-style models after wonderful dinner... Haha~ It's really FUN!!
I'm thinking perhaps we can be the part-time models someday as we have the potential in this field, don't we? *chuckle*

A Graceful Lady

Besides the normal daily basic works that I carry out everyday, I used to devote myself to both drawing and playing violin. Both of them, however, have became such important things that I don’t want to miss out in enjoying my life here.

Here is another piece of my artwork – a graceful lady, to share with all of you. Hope you all will like it… Cheers! *wink*

The First Blister in My Violin Life

Ouch! The first blister starts to appear on the 3rd fingertip of my left hand after playing violin for almost a week. This could be too much vibration of the strings.

Furthermore, I used to keep my finger fully down on the string everytime in order to get the string touched on the fingerboard firmly. My friend, Fikar suggested me to press the string lightly. I tried it out during my practice but the string was not touched on the fingerboard entirely and it tended to produce harsher and squeaky sound at the end. Perhaps, this is not the right way to press the string down. So I went back to the previous method and that’s how finally raised a blister on my fingertip.

I didn’t mind even though it hurt. In fact, I was even pleased because I could play a pleasant and better tune at the end. *wink*

Emporio Armani Sunglasses

I found an Emporio Armani sunglasses left without casing in BK’s car drawer unintentionally this afternoon. As normal, I simply pick up this branded glasses and did a try in front of the car mirror. It just suited and fitted to my head and I like my new image in this brown-shielded sunglasses.

I turned my head left and right in order to find out nice posing from the mirror. Hoohoo~ it definitely is the ideal sunglasses that I’m looking for so far. It is less classical but more trendy. I felt myself great in that and somehow it enhanced my appearance too. I know the oversized 60s-70s sunglasses is still leading the trend in fashion. Anyhow, it is all about how you wear it. I like this sunglasses because it makes me feel GOOD. *grin*

No doubt, the price of this branded sunglasses will surely be expensive, I expect it should more than RM300. Too bad BK doesn’t want me to have it else may be I can get a good bargain (RM30?! I bet he would say - You better go & rob from the shop!!) over the price from him. *sob sob*
