I See RED!

*Warning! A Total Narcist Post!*

I have never really attempt classic red look before, coz I'm nervous of how it'll turn out. Orang selalu kata, the secret in making the look works is to find the perfect red lippie.

Got a couple of red lipsticks during my Stage haul the other day, saya rasa macam dah jumpa lipstick merah idaman hati, been experimenting at home but still haven't got the confidence to wear it outside.

Hari ni entah kenapa rasa gedik datang, tetibe je macam feeling diva pakai lipstick merah pergi opis! Dari dalam kereta dah dok baca Bismillah banyak-banyak. Hahaha...

Senang cakap, dari pagi lah orang dok cakap, "Wowwwww! Bibir mengancam!"




Me likey, the red lippie!

A Day at the Museum!

Was in Kuantan over the weekend to visit my brother who's studying there. Since he's in last semester and he ought to complete his exams by the end of the month, so we figured, marilah melawat dia buat kali terakhirnya. Hehehe...


Mom has always wanted to visit Muzium Perlombongan Sg Lembing, which was once the biggest, longest, deepest tin mine in the world! So off we went...


Muzium Perlombongan Sungai Lembing



Sungai Lembing is a tin mining town 42 km northwest of Kuantan in Pahang, Malaysia. Lembing is Malay for spear, and "sungai" means river. Per local legend, the local ruler saw a vision of a spear in the nearby river and thus named his town after this vision.


Until the 1970s, Sungai Lembing was a major producer of underground tin. Sungai Lembing town developed in the 1880's when the British set up the tin mining industry, although the history of mining in this area extends much further back. From 1891, the Pahang Consolidated Company Limited, (PCCL), which was under British control, had a 77-year lease to mine the area. PCCL managed the mine from 1906 until its liquidation in 1986 when world tin prices collapsed.


The pit mines were closed in 1986 due to high operational costs and low yields, but during their heyday they were among the largest and deepest in the world. The total tunnel length is 322 km, with a depth of between 610 m and 700 m. A museum highlighting the tin mining industry was opened in 2003. The museum is housed in an old bungalow once used by the mine manager. The museum houses a collection of mining artifacts.


Today the town of Sg Lembing is in decline although it was once the richest town in Pahang, known as El Dorado of the East. In the 1940's about 1400 people worked in the mine. Today many of the wooden shoplots are closed and people are moving away. The town straddles the river, and the main street on the right bank is split by an avenue of majestic trees. At the end, an old wooden building overlooks the padang where games of cricket and other social activities were held.

Found this blog by Euniceta who wrote a lengthy description of her experience visiting the museum. I couln't have written about it even half as good as she did. Go check it out!

If...


"If he misses you, he’ll call just to hear your voice. If he wants you, he’ll say it. And if he cares, he’ll show it. If he has a thought about you, it will come out of his mouth. If you are on his mind non-stop, he will do anything he can just to see you. If he truly likes you, he won’t let get anything in the way and fight back just to keep you in his arms. If not, he can’t be worth your time because you’re obviously not worth his."

Empty


Promises made up of empty words
Trust betrayed by lines and verse
Precious moments couldn't be reversed
Life seems like a never ending curse

Time slips away, couldn't be caught
Buses and trains provide my transport
Your plane takes off from the airport
Unspoken words unable to teleport

Clouds fill with rain and thunder
Thoughts of closeness only drift us further
Hopes for sweetness only proves bitter
Changing season calls for surrender

Heart useless clutching on for years
Dark rings circling eyes full of tears
Longing and waiting but you never appeared
Fate's interpretations remains unclear

Living life without a purpose nor a goal
Orange summer turns winter cold
Have sympathy for this tired soul
Fore you have left me a burning hole
