I'm The Lucky One

I cannot pin down the most beautiful or best song I have heard because I love so many songs for so many reasons.

Recently, I heard this song and I have to say I just loved it ever since it passed my ears; which no doubt I recognised the beautiful voice by Anuar Zain.

It really touched me, (even currently I am not emotionally attached to anyone) and yes, I am touched by its lyrics too..

It is almost magical..And I wanted to know the true lyrics... :)

I'm The Lucky One by Anuar Zain

Ku persembahkan satu citaku
Setulus hati hanyalah untukmu
Dan ku lakukan semampu aku
'Tuk menyayangimu
Hingga kau merasa jadi pujaanku


Meski bercinta kadang tak indah
Tapi 'tuk buktikan kau yang terindah
Dan ku pastikan
I'm the lucky one
Nikmati cinta
Lebih dari segalanya

Jiwaku dulu yang tak tersentuh
Kini terasa sejak bersamamu
Berikan hangat hingga ku tak mampu
'Tuk jauh darimu
Kerna kau yang bisa buatku bahagia


Caramu membuatku tak berdaya
Mata hatiku pun ikut terjaga
Kau ubah hidupku ini
Jadi sempurna

"In music, beauty is in the ears of the beholder"

Nature Healing

Can contact with nature relieve stress and anxiety, and help us to heal? As for me, it appears that it can, even when I am in the loosest way. For instance, passive contact with nature, like when I look at the sunset, ocean, waterfalls, beaches and lakes.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

Mirror Lake, Yosemite Valley

Sunset at Pigeon Point, Tobago, Caribbean

The Blue Lagoon, Fiji

Redang Island, Terengganu

So, with all the efforts to alleviate stress; from gym and yoga to anti-stress pills, maybe the key is as simple as a garden. In fact, from my own experience even a little bit of nature seems to make a big impact.

Therefore, I would take every chance to go to nature places so that I could minimize, or at least buffer the stresses of my everyday life.
Now that's what I call nature healing.

Finally..Harrods at KLCC!

Harrods is officially opened on 21st February 2009..see my updates here..

Yay! Harrods will be open soon at Suria KLCC. This will be the second retail outlet in Malaysia after KLIA.

It is located at the corner lot next to Godiva but the lot is very small.

I believe that this new outlet will be more into a flagship retail and food/beverages outlet. The franchise holder is Amtek International which operates Harrods brand products in Malaysia..

Beyond doubt, I have always mesmerized by Harrods' lavishness and its palatial fortress. Luckily it's coming nearer to me now.. :)

What do you want to say?

I disgust when it comes to job interviews—not only because of the nerves, but mainly on the dress code.

When it comes to fashion in general, I am a bit of a style renegade. As a type that always diversify when it comes to dress choosing; sometimes overdress or too simple, definitely not bluntly following the trend.

However, business is business, and if you're looking to land an office job, dress codes can be serious business. While many work places are becoming much more relaxed about dress codes, for a lot of companies, professional appearance is of utmost importance.

The way you present yourself on the day of your interview may speak volumes to your potential employer.

The common dress code that people must follow during interview is very conservative.

The traditional look for women includes a skirt that hits just above the knee, slacks and perhaps pantsuits, simple jewelry, a little makeup and polished flats or moderate heels.

For a guy is basically a button-down shirt. Polished black shoes .A blue, black or gray jacket .Slacks that complement the jacket. So boring though, unless when you see George Clooney or Brad Pitt wearing them!

Although you're interviewing in a creative field, you should still dress appropriately.

You have got the skills? So, who cares if your tongue is pierced and you have got tattoos down both arms? Will an employer be turned off by the tattoos? One nationally known employer insists on clean-shaven employees, but is that the rule for most employers?

If you succeed in your interview, you will have plenty of opportunities to wear outrageous fashions.

Dress as you want to be seen: Serious, professional, upward-bound and ready to meet clients.

When In Doubt – It is better to be overdressed than underdressed. You don't want your new employer to think you don't take the job seriously.

Trendy is fine, as long as you keep your style subtle. Clothes make a strong statement about us. What do you want to say?
