Update Your Bookmarks - Perky Has Moved!

Scribbled by Perky |

Hey everyone,

Just wanna drop a quick note here. I have moved my blog to The Restless Pixie, so do update your bookmarks to point to http://restlesspixie.com/The_Restless_Pixie/Blog/Blog.html.

My old blog here will remain here until the domain expires at the end of the year. But I doubt that I'll be updating it.

I'm quite sad to let this blog go but it just felt like it was time to say goodbye and start new. Anyway, I do hope to see some familiar faces at my new blog!

Ushering in the New Year

Scribbled by Perky |

Ok, so I'm like 15 days behind from wishing everyone a happy new year. So "HAPPY NEW YEAR, FELLOW BLOGGERS!!!!" :D

I ended 2009 pretty much with a big bang. I had never been so busy year-end but 2009 was pretty exceptional (hence, another long MIA from me... urgh.)

Anyways, I got myself some new 'toys' to play with, which has been keeping me occupied most times. I finally bought myself a MacBook Pro (which I HEART so much that I don't know how I managed to use Windows-based PC in the past. lol). I even bought myself a Crumpler bag specifically just for my Mac. lol.

To add on to my "Apple" family, I even got myself an iPhone. Now that I'm on the iPhone, I have no idea how the hell I'm ever going to go back to your average just-for-calls-and-SMS type of phone. I love the fact that I'm always connected on the internet. I love how supportive the iPhone communities are (we all share Application tips and what not). I love the cool and fun applications on the iPhone and how easy it is to download them (and I've recently discovered Podcast materials, mainly Stand Up Comedies... which is awesome entertainment btw).

Can you tell how in love I am with the iPhone? Lol.

So I ended 2009 with a bang.

And starting 2010 with an adventure.

My 2 girlfriends and I are doing our trip to Europe this coming February. YAY!!! We'll be hitting Paris, Vienna, Prague and Berlin on this trip. Planning for this trip has been really time-consuming as we're trying to keep within our budgets.

We've started our travel blog for this trip. So head over to We're Not That Lost in Europe: The Chronicles to read about our "little" adventure. And if you have traveling tips or know of places we should do or things we ought to try over there, just hit us with your comments! :D

The Thing About Size and Men...

Scribbled by Perky |

Spending an afternoon with a bunch of straight guys made me forget that I almost have to tone down my bitchiness honesty just 'cause straight guys 'don't get it', unlike my gay friends.

Anyway, I had plans to meet up with the boys, *Beavis and *Butthead, at a coffee shop. I drove up in the Ford Hurricane, which usually draws a lot of unwanted attention to me because of my hobbit-like stature.

*Beavis: Isn't that truck a lil too big for a tiny girl like you?

That drew fits of laughter amongst the boys, which, I'm not going to deny, shattered me emotionally.

Cheap shot, boys. You know that scene where a boy kicks a girl in the crotch and he's expecting the girl to react the same way he does when he gets kicked in the nuts, but that doesn't happen coz HELLO! girls don't have balls, and then he gets a knock-out punch from the girl in return? Yeah, isn't that some funny shit?

Oh hold on, did I just say, "shattered me emotionally?" Me, shatter emotionally? Must be the crazy pills talking.

Anyhoo, I felt that it was my duty as a servant of god, that I gave these boys a lesson on size and perception.

Perky: Hey *Beavis, that Audi Q7 is yours, isn't it?
*Beavis: Yeah. Isn't she a babe?
Perky: Yeah, totally. I guess you must get a lot of stares from people, right?
*Beavis: Oh hell yeah. That's why I got it in the first place.
Perky: Right. There's nothing like that high you get when people comment "Omg, check out that dude driving the Audi. Guess he bought it so people won't pay attention to his face".
*Beavis: I'm not ugl....my mother said I was her pride an...
Perky: Does it not bother you when people ask you, instead of spending all that money on a car, why don't you do something about your buck teeth and ape-like nostrils?

Then I turn to my next victim, *Butthead.

Perky: Hey *Butthead, you're slightly bigger than the average Malaysian, right?
*Butthead: I don't like where this is going, but yeah.
Perky: Do you not feel cramped up in your Kelisa?
*Butthead: Hey I fit in it just fine. I'm comfortable in it. It gets me to places. It's a fuel-saving car.
Perky: Wow, you actually have to psych yourself up every time you get into your car, huh? Doesn't it make you feel small when you see me driving in my truck? Think of all that leg room, all that height and all that power a truck has that a Kelisa doesn't.

My ultraman's bigger than your ultraman!

I would've stopped right there but I couldn't resist and added this for the final blow:
Perky: You may walk tall and big, but on the road you're just an ant next to me. And you're ok with that?

The silence from the boys was a sweet victory to me as I sipped my smoldering hot coffee. If it were not for the moment we were in, I would've squealed like a wuss for I had burnt my tongue while trying to maintain the macho look I had over the boys.

*Butthead: You're hungry, aren't you?
Perky: Yeah, I'm starving! And I think I'm PMS-ing too.
*Beavis: And I think you may have forgotten to take your crazy pills today.

[Writer's note: *Names has been changed to protect the boys' identities. I fear that if their actual identities are made public, they may never recover from depression if people knew that they secretly cry when watching chick flicks and that they enjoy long walks on the beach.]

*Disclaimer: No one got offended during this seemingly brutal exchange. That's just how we roll.

There's No Place Like Home

Scribbled by Perky |

As I sit here in my mother's living room, staring out at her beautiful garden, I can't help but feel so at peace. Some people may dread that it's pouring heavily outside, but I love it. The smell of rain touching the grass, now that's something you don't get in the big city.

And with a cuppa next to my laptop, I'm truly having a much deserved "me" time.

Gosh, there really is no place like home. Or in this moment, shall I say, mom's garden? There's plenty of space in her garden that we can have a backyard party. Oh but if we had a pergola, I wouldn't mind having my wedding reception in our garden.

Mom's beautiful garden is a real testament to the hardwork she's put into it. I can't imagine watering the garden on my own (which is something she does every evening).

And it's not just having to water the plants. You also got to fertilize and trim them. It's just way too much work if you ask me.

But still, it's nice to have a garden that's tastefully done and well taken care of.

Reviving My Lost Love

Scribbled by Perky |

My schedule has been so erratic lately that my blog has really taken a back seat huh?

To be honest, I haven't quite settled into the rhythm of having a puppy. I've started to take Sasha out for walks in Central Park, which should sound like a walk a park (no pun intended).

But I'm so unfit these days that walking for an hour literally takes my breath away. I'm so tired from walking my dog that I end up sleeping early! And Sasha, being like a 3-year old on speed, she never seems to run out of energy.

If you ever get the chance to see me beg my dog to be tired and go to sleep already, it's very likely that you'll think I'm the most pathetic dog owner in the world. I wouldn't blame you ;)

And yeah, it also doesn't help that I spend whatever available time I have now on Facebook playing Mafia Wars.

That game is totally evil.

But if you're playing MW, you should like totally ADD me on Facebook!!

It is sad to see what my blog has become. It's collecting dust. Even the dust now has dust. It's almost like I've lost my voice (or my mind, or on some days both).

Then I thought to myself, what can I possibly do to make me return to my first online love? All these while, it has been you, my dearly beloved readers (particularly Granny Twilight and Anton), that has been reminding me of my blog.

I can't keep getting nudged by my readers to update my blog. I need to take a proactive role here... afterall it is my blog.

So I'm thinking of turning my blog into more of a collaboration effort. I'm gonna post a weekly question in which you readers can either mouth off in the comment section OR you can submit your post to me via email and along with a link to your blog I'll post it up on my blog. In other words, you'll be a contributor on my blog.

Or you guys can ask me questions and I'll post my answer on my blog. (You may ask any questions except the size of my panties, you perv!)

On a side note: I can't wait for this Thursday. Am going to watch Michael Jackson's This Is It! in 1Utama's GSC. If you're a fan of MJ, you owe it to yourself to watch the late King of Pop on big screen with surround system.
