Is it me, or am I getting the feeling that with each passing year the New Year becomes less exciting?
I went for work,
and they had a Lucky Bag event.
What frustrated me so much was the fact that there are such customers who not only ignore your instructions but just frustrates you with questions where the answers had to be repeated.
Lucky Bag - A bag which contents are hidden and disclosed and BY RIGHT should be opened only AFTER you've bought it.
So it's like a Christmas Present. Only that it's a New Years present to yourself.
So let's think about it this way (I don't mean to insult or point fingers or anyone. It's just an observations. If you feel hurt, either you PERASAN, or you did it before but never thought about it), a Lucky Bag is like, a gift. A wrapped gift, with a surprise.
If you were to open it, isn't it RUINING the surprise, or potentially ruining someone else's?
If they were clothes, how would you know if they were of good quality and the correct sizes and has nice patterns etc?
That's the point. It's a LUCKY BAG. It's not right if you would purposely CREATE your own luck by peeping inside.
The sizes are written on the piece of paper OUTSIDE the bag. If you're still unsure then ask about what size would fit you best.
However the clothes look are ENTIRELY up to your LUCK. Please la, don't ruin the fun :/
I know this sounds like some spoilt person saying things like she herself has not done it or sinned (I have never bought a lucky bag before) but the thought of having lucky bags are meant to be fun and not troublesome.
Giving or selling the lucky bag should be a happy experience and not a troublesome one, for those who do follow the points about not opening them and peeking in them, don't you think they'd feel like it's not worth it anymore to have lucky bags since everyone's just opening them like cannibals? :/
On the other hand, HAPPY 2014!
I am not angry or anything at these people, just disappointed.

So we decided to go to The Curve for a change.
My sister heard of this place called Johnny Rockets where the entire layout was like a diner in the olden times,
WHO WOULD WANT TO MISS THE CHANCE TO TRY THAT OUT?!
So we made our way to Johnny Rockets - The Original Burger :P
True enough, its layout was like those diners, they even had a JUKEBOX! :O
So they opened at 11am and we made it there quite early and had put our names on the waiting list.
They opened the "diner" with a dance. ALL THE STAFF DANCED. TO A SONG. FROM THE JUKEBOX.
It was a good start, I must say. A good way to get the customers all excited to try out the food!
They then started seating hungry customers who were on the waiting list, chronologically.
We were number 13. After we heard the person before us being called, we waited for our turn. And waited. And waited. For half and hour.
The worst part was that there were STILL empty seats. And sure enough, customers started complaining. They explained that this was their way of quality control because they are not a fast food restaurant, but half an hour.
How did we know though, that we waited half an hour? Oh, they had a very good clock! Another performance was given at half hour intervals. Again, that was a good feature of theirs, but the least they could do was seat the people first. Instead of entertaining the crowd (they probably were entertaining the already seated ones but not the ones waiting), they should just fill up their booths first.
So after the wait, we were finally seated. But because we were waiting in line for quite a while, we already decided what we wanted to eat.
Sis and I decided to share a milkshake and I decided to order their Bacon Cheddar burger.
Again. Guess how long we waited for the food? Another half an hour. We watched another energetic performance from the staff and even though it was a catchy tune and dance, it was starting to get on the nerves.
LUCKILY, the milkshake was DELICIOUS. There was just something about this milkshake that was really good, and it brought the excitement back up as we waited for the food.
*Do note however, even though the service time was really slow, the service that the waiters give are really good. They were really friendly and were constantly smiling and helpful.
And my Bacon Cheddar Burger came not long after the milkshake! It was like a "Finally!! Can't wait to try!" moment. The waiter also drew a smiley face with ketchup on a dish for us to eat with our fries! :) Things were looking much better at this moment.
I bit into it, it was good, but not as good as I thought.
My opinion was that it was just a normal burger, and honestly for the price I was paying, it wasn't worth it. BurgerLab was probably more worth it. They did have something I have not tried in a burger before though, they used potato buns.
The ratings I would give is:
Service: 8/10 (the waiting time took points away)
It's not a place that I would frequently go to, but maybe once in a LONG while. If you have not tried it though, at least give it a shot. The experience of the staff dancing and the environment is something to look forward to!
You can find them at: G52, The Street, The Curve, Mutiara Damansara.

So I have a Churpie.
AND I'M LOVING IT.
It's adorable-ness just makes me feel like hugging it and never letting go.
I've been wanting this every since I saw it.
And the fact that you can't buy it makes me want it even more.
I know this blogpost is unrelated to society and how life has been.
But I feel guilty for leaving my blog unattended for so long due to assignments and such :/
I PROMISE I WILL TRY TO BLOG MORE
As the year starts to come to an end,
I realise that it starts to get more hectic
and assignments are just so many.
So now CHURPIE WILL ACCOMPANY ME >=]
I missed the Nuffnang FoodFest because I thought that I couldn't eat anything without the app :/
But I only found out that I could after I got home...
But I will try to go for the Churpout2013 AND I AM EXCITED!!!
I went for Churpout2012 and I had so much fun meeting all the bloggers,
hope that one day I'd be as awesome as them *crosses fingers*
So see you guys there? :)
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY CHURPIE ❤

Greetings from CPU in Taylors!
Classes are really light today, so I decided to blog and resurrect this for a while :3
It's suppose to be cross-dress day,
but I sorta fail trying to be a guy,
there are some hot girls today HAHAHA
There's been a craze for this video,
named "What did the fox say"
Trying to figure out what to do with my life now,
it's been such sleepy morning's.
What to dooooooo....

So ever since I started Media Arts,
I've been playing around with photoshop.
Recently I learnt how to use Illustrator, now moving on the photoshop.
(I'm sorry that I couldn't really learn just from YouTube, but I did try)
This was when I was really obsessed with Despicable Me 2,
I still didn't get the chance to watch it :(
But I was also just beginning to really try out photoshop :)
And this was what I did for my assignment for Media Arts,
in case you couldn't see,
It's meant the write J Designs.
The white space forms the "D" hahah
(But do let me know whether you can see it or not :) I would love some feedback!)
And, you would've seen this because I used this for my TEDxKL event :)
Simple design, but looks nice enough for me :D
Amazing what photoshop can do!
I'm learning more now because my cousin is really good at it too!
We now have so much more in common and our bond grows closer :P
I'm sorry for having nothing to post about lately
been pretty caught up with college :(
But if I do have any more designs I would really love to post them up here!! :D

The banner says all :3
I've been trying my hand at designing and photoshop,
so YES. I made that.
But the background picture was taken from the website itself :)
I'm sure you Malaysians would've heard of this event,
because I overheard some people saying they were from Penang and came all the way just for this
btw, this took place in Mid Valley Megamall Exhibition Hall :)
It all starts out with registration, and the counter was open at 10.30am and there was already a giant queue ._.
But we were actually already fortunate enough to be one of the early ones cause the line just got longer.
There were about 1.8k people!!!
Since the event ACTUALLY starts at 1pm,
there were booths set up so you could check them out,
or just sit on a DOOF beanie listening to these people singing.
Each participant were given a goodie bag!!! :D
I chose red :P
and HiSHOP were giving out free gifts too!
Talk about awesome :3
There was also a "BEFORE I DIE" wall,
where you just get chalks and write down your wishes :P
At about 12.30pm,
we decided to go wait at the entrance.
This was what we had to go through ==
This was the problem.
PEOPLE. WAS. JUST. SHOVING.
They didn't even follow a queue.
People just rushed in like they were escaping from a zombie apocalypse!
(Okay, over exaggeration there :x)
found ourselves some satisfactory seats
and just waited while staring at the screen.
p/s: It was my first TEDx event, so I was really REALLY excited!!!
There were three sessions,
and 12 speakers.
I did not know any of them.
But they still caught my attention and ideas and inspirations were still flying across the room.
Each speaker had their own "SketchPost"
I think they had someone sketch while the talks were going on.
I only took a photo of Zung's because...
1. There were TOO many people just... crowding x.x
2. His talk was one of the most inspiring, showing you that as long as you have the passion, everything else will come :)
When he talked about his life,
I teared when I saw the pictures.
(THANK GOD THE ROOM WAS DARK)
But seriously, I teared :')
the other speakers were just as amazing.
There were all sorts of ideas:
1. Rubber Recycling
2. Curing Brain Cancer with NDV
3. Glowing Plants (IT'S REAL.)
4. Space based Solar Panels
5. 3D printer
and so many many more!
This is an artwork from another artist,
which amazed me and she showed me that you don't need to follow the rules.
Use your out of the world ideas and you can create the most beautiful pictures :)
psst: She did that scene on the place out of cucumbers btw :3
There were plenty more artwork and honestly,
I was hoping that I got the chance to get a headshot,
but.. 1.8k people wanted to as well,
so I gave up queueing :(
Looking through all their artwork and photography was amazing.
Don't ask me why,
it just magically connects :)
Hahah I sound so.. philosophical @.@
But I'm not. I just like the works.
Everyone has their own tastes right?
That was TEDxKL for me.
A real great experience.
Can't wait to go for TEDxYOUTH now :3
If you are interested, you can visit their youtube page and watch videos of all the talks :)

I know this is late,
but I went for Bon Odori FOR THE FIRST TIME.
I've always wanted to go and see what it was like,
cause I like Japanese culture :3
So here's an awkward smile for the day xD
I went with 2 friends,
and met up with a few other people too! :D
Who knew so many of them were planning to go~
Met the guy in a yukata~
I wish I wore one, but I didn't have any and I had no cash :X
The lady who brought me here :3
By the way,
The Bon Odori festival was held at Matsushita Stadium in Shah Alam :)
Or Panasonic Stadium.
The rest of the photos were taken by my camera,
and I'm sorry for my bad photography skills.
There were so many cute kids wearing yukata's there I can't even...
The kids wouldn't just stay still for a picture though :/
There were a taiko performance too!
I have never seen such HUGE taiko's because I've only played the ones in the arcades
there was the stage where the dancing takes place *plays grand opening music*
For those who don't know,
Bon Odori is a festival that is somewhat like the Chinese "Ching Ming" festival,
where they celebrate their ancestors etc.
So you can't cosplay or be disrespectful by overexposing your skin or something lid dat.
There will also be dancing where the dancers will be up on that stage and the people are welcome to join in as the moves are quite easy to follow.
You can just go and dance with your friends and family,
ITS REAL FUN!
You can just bring along a picnic mat and sit on the grass chatting and bonding with your friends while you watch the dances and performances :D
Though I would suggest bringing along your own snacks/meals cause
some most of the food there are quite expensive.
Though this year's festival is over,
you can always go next year :3
It was a great first experience for me~
Hope to see you there next year! :D
