MasterChef US:)

Never ever before in my life I watch a cooking tv show. So many people talked about Jamie Olliver, Chef Wan, Hell’s Kitchen, etc, but I can never watch the whole show. I can only watch no longer than 5 minutes and will switch channel. I guess my interest was not there.

But during my exam leave, I indulged myself in tv (payback time hehe..). Somehow, I got hooked on MasterChef US…Seriously hooked haha. The show was definitely different with other cooking show. 

I think this one was interesting to me coz firstly it involves amateurs – they come from all different field: doctor, contractor, financial planner, etc. Tapi masak terrer woo….

Then the judge – they really know how to make both contestants and audience suspense… Gordon Ramsay tu siap boley buat orang nangis laa kan. Emotionally wrenching – it’s like watching ANTM! huhu…Anyway, I really like Joe Bastianich, very cool man. Muka die stone jer bila time food tasting tu huhu…

But did you know that he was actually obese and due to health problem he exercise and successfully reduce 45 pounds. I googled and found his picture 8 years ago…amik ngko, montel kan.

Picture of 8 years ago of Joe with his mom, Lidia (a well known chef herself)

Now his looks ~ wow!!!

tall & handsome:)

Thus proves the benefit of exercise:)

I think another interesting thing in US version of MasterChef is that their editing is very good- it makes you feel connected and understand the contestant hehe…

So during my so called ‘exam leaves’ I watched all the episodes including audition yang ala ala American Idol tu:). Btw, I think Sharone should be in the final instead of Sheetal, but too bad he had to compete with Whitney in the semi-final pressure test.

Another tv series I’m hooked – How I Met Your Mother. It reminded me so much of my ever favorite series F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I especially love the characters of Barney and Lily. Tapi tak sempat babe nak marathon. Kena cuti lagik nie! huhu….

Enjoy the last few days of year 2010. Create the most beautiful memories with your loved ones =).

I’m back peeps!

Hi peeps!

Oh wow looks like I’m away for almost 1 month. I was away coz I was busy doing my assignment (1 week), exam (1 week), & jalan jalan (1 week). Those who knew me surely know how I procrastinate to the last minute for the assignment – that’s why I really need to be MIA from doing any other thing.

The exam I thought was okay, until about 1 hour before the exam ended…I’m doing this calculation essay worth 15 points. Where half through calculating some probability Qs the calculator gave me answer like 3.45678^-3 whereby the answer I need should be in the point form. It’s okay if that’s the final answer but I need the answer to calculate something else, thus it makes me so nervous. I tried to change the format but to no avail (I borrowed the scietific calculator from my nephew 1 day earlier). After 15 minutes trying and tangan dah menggeletar, I borrowed someone else calculator. So in those panic moments, I’m not sure my answer is right or wrong. I can either get 15 points or zero. I’ll let you know next month when the result is out. Moral of the story:  make sure you know the calculator’s function!!!

We went jalan jalan to our high school reunion in Perak, with strolling down the memory lane theme. It was great to flashback all the wonderful bittersweet memories. Then last week we went to Yan, Kedah for my nephew’s wedding. Alhamdulilah everything went well. Now husna is officially our family member:).

Other than that, last month I said goodbye to my loyal SGH D500C as dearest hubby got me Iphone 4. I’m not a tech addict, but I really truly love this new gadget for so many reasons, though I have not explored all of its functions worrying it might distract my study.

my faithful servant for 5 years

It was actually only my 2nd handphone (seriously I’m so not tech savvy) so please don’t ask me to compare with android, htc whatsoever. My SGH D500C above hold so many loving memories of love notes and joyful pictures (plus it was ‘hantaran’ gift from hubby), and I hope this Iphone 4 will continue to capture our journey:)

See ya!
