Hey guys!
So, today, since it's Father's Day, my dad brought us all to Miri. Well, most Bruneians, especially those from Kuala Belait, often spend time with their family members by going to Bandar or Miri, either to catch a movie or just shopping. Bandar, the capital, is about an hour and a half's (or less, depends on your car.xD) journey from KB. And Miri, takes about an hour, if there's completely no traffic, it could be less than that.
We went to Popular book store at Parkson (Bintang MegaMall) and I met Wiagil and her sister Widya. I saw my ex-classmate and best friend Christina too, with her family as they ascended the escalators to the highest floor after we descended FROM the highest floor. I also saw my ex-English teacher Mdm. Yong with her daughter Cynthia and her husband crossing a pedestrian. 
I also saw the twins David & Daniel at Popular. And my mum met her old friend.

And after that we went to eat seafood at Meng Chai restaurant which was located by the roadside. And my dad had told me that around seven-thirty or earlier every night, the whole restaurant would be crowded with people.

We ate 'giant' prawns, some random plate of veggie (I never pay attention to veggies, sorry veggie :P), 'bamboo' clams in curry sauce and fresh fish. It wasn't enough to fill up my tummy so after eating dinner there, we headed to the Desserts shop located in town, a rather huge area with tons of Kopitiam (Coffee shops), stalls and stuff like that. 
Desserts sell the best ice-creams! You should try the Cookie-&-Cream flavoured ice-cream. It's fresh and creamy and mmmlicious!
As me, my sis & my mum enjoy a scoop of ice-cream and cone each in the car, my dad drove us back to Kuala Belait.

Here are the books I bought at Popular:

Catching The Sun by Tony Parsons is a story about a family having a little getaway to the island of Phuket in Thailand, thinking that they would find 'paradise' there but it turned out to be the other way round. I flipped through the book and saw that it has positive reviews from the Sunday Telegraph, New York Times and etc. So I decided to buy it!

Jasmine Skies by Indian author Sita Brahmachari won the Carnegie Medal, and many other awards particularly regarding children's book awards. 
I decided to buy it because 1)The cover was attractive. 
2) The text inside was just the right size, and I don't like books that have small texts. They're just so hard to read for me.
3) This book won the Carnegie Medal, I know many other books did too but not ALL & EVERY book did! So it proves that this book IS good. It has lots of positive reviews too. And she's a bestselling author (Same goes for Tony Parsons!)

I guess it was a huge mistake for me to buy the Shiver Trilogy, which has three books. When I was at Popular, it was wrapped in plastic and we're unable to rip the plastic open, of course. So I guess today I judged a book from it's cover. These three books contains romance and is about werewolves. == Ughh. I hid it in a box in my room just in case my parents found it or something. 

That's all I have to say for today. Thanks for reading, guys!
And don't forget, visit my Wattpad and please read my stories, especially Angel With A Shotgun!

Listen Or Regret.

It's an unfortunate thing that not many of you guys heard of the band The Cab. Last year they recently released their new album Symphony Soldier and a few of their singles ROCK ;).

The Cab- Endlessly (Co-written by Bruno Mars) 
One of the best songs by them! ^_^ And I'm still in love with this.
This song sorts of describe a guy saying that he isn't that rich or affordable to get EVERYTHING for the girl he long dreamed and awaits for. But he just hopes that this girl appreciates his love. This song is so meaningful.
Especially these parts:
"There's a shop down the street,
where they sell plastic rings,
For the quarter apiece,
I swear it.
Look I know that it's cheap,
not like gold in your dreams,
But I hope that you'll still wear it."

"There's a house on the hill,
with the view of the town,
and I know how you adore it.
So I'll work everyday,
through the sun and the rain,
until I can afford it."

Touching if a guy sings this to you? ;D HAHAHA. YES. TOUCHING.

The Cab- Angel With A Shotgun (One of their best singles)
I LOVE THIS SOSOSOSOSOSO MUCH! Even though I got so bored of listening to it non-stop for continuous hours each day. But not today. I've got bored to the core. I'm now addicted to the next song by The Cab that I shall introduce. 
So, My Wattpad story (Wattpad is a place where people show their potential in writing and share their stories) title Angel With A Shotgun, is about war, and it's based on this song as well! 
So, I could as well say that...
I'm terribly sorry Directioners, but I 100% agree that their band is better. And don't argue with me because I'm speaking out my opinion. It's just that The Cab doesn't have as much publicity as One Direction gets. And plus I know the One Direction guys are wayyyyy far moreeee good-looking. So that's also a reason why.

So this is the song I mentioned previously that I am currently addicted to! This is one of their best singles too.
When I was on Youtube reviewing this video and stuff, as I scrolled down, one of the top comments said:
"Animal- Co-written by Adam Levine
 Endlessly- Co-written by Bruno Mars
 Angel With A Shotgun & Bad- Their best singles"
True Story.
But Endlessly was also a GREAT song. 
Animal is too...well 'wild', maybe?

When I asked my friends, among all The Cab's songs, they love this the most. For me, at that time, I was still in love with their Angel With A Shotgun song. So I did sort of disagreed to them on my opinion. Haha.
This song is rather catchy too. And I did not say that I'm not in love with it.

This is ONE OF MY FAVOURITES! Wait-no, huh?- They are all my favourites actually. I honestly, can't pick the best. 

You guys MUST listen to all these songs above that I had recommended, all sang by the same & amazing band, The Cab!
I'm dedicating all these songs above (Maybe except for Bad & La La), to my story in Wattpad Angel With A Shotgun. These songs are going to be dedicated to my characters, and Angel With A Shotgun will be dedicated to my WHOLE story, the rest I leave for the characters.
Psst, here's a spoiler: Living Louder will be dedicated to one of my characters (Guess: Girl or guy?) when she/he DIES. 
And...the rest are for you to feel clueless about and guess! ;)

1070 guys are amazing X.X I never expected the views to increase much due to me----> being idle at Wattpad.

Four Hours.

Hello people :D
I quite missed blogging since I've spent so much time sharing my story on Wattpad, and I officially published my second latest story, it's a collaboration of Sci-Fi and romance. It's a story about war. Check out my Wattpad on my Google+ profile. 
It would help me a lot if you could read my story, and I know I don't have an extremely high command of English. But I hope that'd be okay for you guys.
On Friday, 9th of June, I went to my bestie Amril's home.
Since it's a day before my most awaited moment (HOLIDAYS (:<), we could easily sit back and relax. Fiyah came along too, and it's great to see her again even if I just went over to her house for a group study a day ago on Thursday. 

At first, we literally had no idea of what to do. We just sat on a mattress in her 16 degree Celcius room and chit-chatted. 

Before Fiyah came, Amril showed me some of the books she and her sister had bought at the SMSA Bookfair last Sunday & Saturday.
And since I haven't used my Lumix camera for quite a while, I snapped some random shots of her stuff and some plushies.
And this is Amril's Canon Powershot G12.

We got quite bored as we waited for Fiyah to come so Amril read me out some funny quotes and rules about stray cats from a book called The Cat Fanatic which is pictured above. 
And leaning on her head is her Build-A-Bearville teddy bear named Muffin!

After Fiyah arrived, we took some random photos before heading outside to see Amril's cats and walk around her house.


Meet Momo! The oldest (and is a young grandma cat) cat in Amril's household. She loves taking afternoon naps in Amril's mother's facial room on the sofa, as you can see on the photo above. She's really adorable and quite lovable, too!
But you can pat and stroke her fur on some certain times because sometimes she goes into a bad mood and hisses.
She has two daughters, yeah, daughter cats, the others were all given away and her two remaining adult daughters are named Cit-Cit and Ubi. 
Cit-Cit's eyes are yellowish-golden. Her body is grey and brownish with nice stripes. Amril loves her the most because you can simply cuddle her anytime you want or feel like! But she doesn't like being taken in pictures, and those 'Snap!Snap!' sounds of the cameras quite annoy here, judging from what Amril had told me and a small, short experience too.
Ubi is shy, cuddly and fat! She's very cute and I love her a lot. She is white in colour with black spots all around her body, head and tail! She has gorgeous green eyes.
This black cat is Silky! She is either Cit-Cit or Ubi's daughter (Amril had forgotten). She has slightly thick fur compared to the other cats in the household and she's perhaps, as fat as Ubi! And her tail is fluffy! 

There's still quite a few more of cats but I haven't took any photos of them because either my camera wasn't with me at that time or something else :P.
We walked to a next door house where Amril's relative owns it (So it's okay to walk aroudn the area) and I was being random again, snapping more photos.
Me, Fiyah and Amril had a group photo before heading back into the house and playing a game of dare. Whoever laughs will have to complete a dare. And I was the first one to laugh and I had to fulfill an extremely hilarious but stupid dare. Next was Afiyah's, and Amril's one, she had to dance while Fiyah played Wannabe by the Spice Girls.
She didn't dance. She practically sat on the bed and did some 'hand' moves and roll around or something. Haha.

That was most of what we did for four hours at Amril's crib. The photos above are taken by my Lumix, whereas most of the nice and awesome photos were taken by Fiyah's Nikon and Amril's Canon. But I have no idea when will they donate their photos to me >< HAHA! I guess that's all about that marvelous day! 

See you around, readers & bloggers & randomers.

My Facebook account forever remains private but I guess it's damn easy for you guys to find me on Google's search. ._. But I will never add strangers.

You may check out some of my friends' Wattpad accounts though a few of them haven't published their stories since some of them are new.
Credits to Wiagil for making all the covers for my stories and for introducing Wattpad to me! Otherwise I would've been dead for days from holiday boredom.
