#Whatchuwant is to Pimp My Ride, Xpax!

I went for my first drivers' licence theory lesson on my birthday. Then, for the entire duration of my SPM trial examinations period I went for my practical driving lessons in the afternoon. That was how badly I wanted to learn how to drive and to start driving as soon as I legally can! When I officially got my driver's licence, I was ecstatic!

Of course, parents being parents, I was given the permission to only drive the oldest car we own - my first love Saga! 

Also my faithful camwhore companion for five years
I've been driving this car for years and I love it, it's been with the family for so long and it's more than 15 years old! It wasn't until very recently that we got another addition to our family because my parents fear the Saga can't handle my long distance travels and the horrors of KL's traffic. Wouldn't want to break down in the middle of the notorious Cheras-LokeYew traffic that I'd have to go through everyday! So my dearest Saga baby is now used by my mom for driving around the neighborhood when I'm at work. I'm actually surprised it's still working fine today, except for the fact that we'd have to send it to the mechanics every couple months or so for serious maintenance.

While minor imperfections like these are often left alone, or temporarily DIY-fixed..

Of course, on the exterior it's no longer in its glory shiny perfect days but as long as it takes us from A to B, right? Right? Not really. The exterior should never be compromised, and I hereby call out to Xpax Whatchuwant MTV Pimp My Ride contest for my dear Saga to be pimped out to the utmost glory that it never had in its
21 years of service!

But that's just one of the awesome prizes that Xpax Whatchuwant is exclusively giving away to all Xpax users.

- Samsung 40" Smart Full HD LED TV   (high definition view of Arashi's faces on TV, whoots!)
- Pioneer Blu-Ray Front Surround System   (can pretend to actually be at an Arashi concert!)
- Samsung Galaxy S3.  Samsung. Galaxy. S3. S3. S3. Need I say more?

Best part is, these gadgets worth RM10,000 are part of the prizes given out daily! DAILY! EVERY DAY!

All you need to do is pick any of the packs above that are specially catered to your needs! There are so many because Xpax knows everyone has different lifestyle and communication needs! I'm going for the Talk Suft Pack because I'm talkative and social-media addicted like that!

Now back to Xpax Whatchuwant MTV Pimp My Ride! :D
 See, the dude above has already got it! Cannot, I must have my car pimped out max too!
I mean come on, just look at my Saga! Practically everything is peeling and fading off! 

Don't even get me started on how it sounds when the engine is turned on!

The old scratches plus wear and tears are screaming old age!

Now Xpax Whatchuwant only offers the MTV Pimp My Ride prize on selected special days, means you never know if you're going to win a huge-ass Samsung 40" Smart Full HD LED TV or an all-expenses paid makeover for your car. Bonus: If your car gets pimped, you're going to be filmed and aired on the MTV! INTERNATIONAL (Okay, Asia) FAME HERE I COME. Ahem. So here's how I want Xpax Whatchuwant MTV Pimp My Ride to sprinkle awesome fairy dust on my rundown ride. See it to believe it! 

I've always thought I'd like a flaming red car but I saw this pic on Tumblr once and I love it! 
I want my car to be turned into a cream coloured convertible with a vintage edge! 
I love driving in the mornings with my windows down so a convertible would be so awesome!

Luxurious cream leather seats with dark brown hems and lacquered wood-like touches. 
(Damn, I don't know any car terms. I don't even know car names!)

Next up, tiny details but oh so important - skull accessory because I love it, and a build-in lifesaver GPS!

Let's not forget a kick-ass audio system for me to play my Arashi CDs and imagine myself to be at their concert. This is super important because the total of three hours I spend stuck in traffic jams everyday are my solo karaoke sessions that need to be accompanied by good music! That's about it, really. See how undemanding and practical I am, dear  Xpax Whatchuwant MTV Pimp My Ride and start thinking about pimping my ride!  :D

☆ Little Miss Sunshine ☆

My favourite colour is yellow. The colour yellow reminds me of my favourite things in life - sunshine, lemons and Ninomiya Kazunari ♥ Mind, just because I said I like sunshine doesn't mean I like to be under  the sun hahaha I just enjoy the brightness associated with sunshine! :) I love bright spaces, I'd turn on all the lights at home if it wouldn't be bad for earth and my electric bill. The brighter my room is, the less gloomier it feels! I guess it's just something I'm comfortable with, like having a brightly-lit house with the television turned on no matter what I'm doing. It just makes me feel better and more relaxed.

Anyways, here's a little self-appreciation post. I haven't been vain (at least not online) in a while, so just let me okay hahaha these pictures were taken just now as I was stuck in the jam on the way back. Went out with Terri to meet Arththi who will be flying off to the UK for a year, in just a couple hours! Thank goodness for WhatsApp, Line, Skype, Viber and all the other wonderful inventions to keep us in touch! You'll be sorely missed, woman! ♥ I'm so thankful that our friendships have survived these few years after high school, it's such a comfort to be able to be bitchy and relax with such familiar faces. Gosh I miss the beach in Kuantan. I miss being with these people in Kuantan and just living such a laidback lifestyle. Where I can go out wearing the same thing I'd wear to bed hahaha and not bother about heels and makeup! Not that I don't enjoy heels and makeup, because I sure as hell need love it like anything, but know, sometimes it gets too complicated. Just sometimes.

My Number76 Experience!

Last night, as I lay in bed and going through things in my head, without realizing it, a prayer formed in my train of thoughts. Before I knew it, I was full-on praying, something I haven't done properly in months, perhaps even up to a year. Okay maybe not that  long. But anyways, yes, I said some things and then I fell asleep soon after.

Then came morning afternoon. Don't judge! This is the first day after my last day of working for the past three months, and it felt goooood to just sleep until I wake up when I wake up! :)

I have not had a hair cut since forever as well. Don't even get me started in how terrible my ends are - splitting and wiring zigzag all over like nobody's business! I HAD TO GET A HAIRCUT no matter the cost before my new job starts next week! Off to Number76 I went, convinced by a colleague who showed up to work couple weeks ago looking so friggin' fantastic I did a double-turn, no kidding. She said she got her hair done here, and so booked an appointment at the Mont Kiara branch just before I left home today haha! As luck would have it, as fate would have it, as the unexpected are bound to happen, the Squid's meeting got cancelled and I absolutely had to zoom off to get her to come with me! :) Okay so we got a little lost and I might have almost killed the both of us on the way there, but hey we got there still, albeit a tad late. How was Number76, you ask? Absolutely worth it and damn right I'm going there again next month to colour my hair!

Here's the story - When I made the appointment was for a cut and treatment, they asked whose my stylist and I just said it was my first time there. So they arranged Deji-san (director's cut oooh!) for me. I told him what I wanted to do with my hair- keep the length, different style especially the overgrown fringe - while he listened and looked really deep in thought hahaha but after messing around with my hair he said I actually didn't need a cut since I want to keep the length, because my hair's already nice teehee (SHY OKAY) so he suggested a fringe cut for free instead, and to go ahead with the treatment. Wow, when's the last time your stylist declined to cut your hair and missed the chance to earn a couple extra bucks?

This left a deep impression, and made me feel so much more respect for him as a professional. Went ahead with a hair wash (psst, Shiseido products) and the treatment including a scalp tonic which left my hair in fantabulous health! It took just no longer than half hour and I haven't seen my hair so soft and alive since..well I don't remember! Then my hair was blown dry and curled with a tong, as stylish boys brought over some warm green tea to sip on. Next comes the haircut time - Deji-san asked me first if it was okay to cut my fringe to the length he showed, and paid full attention to every small detail as he worked seriously hahaha he even grabbed the curling tong to style some more strands here and there. Meticulous huh? :)

Sprayed some hairspray and I'm done! Such an amazingly positive experience! I'm actually reaaally anal about hairstylists and pretty much sit in fear every time I get my hair done because I'm afraid they don't understand what I want and get it terrible wrong hahaha that's why I don't often get my hair done wtf /paranoid  Left the salon really happy and satisfied, even made a pact to come again with the Squid next month to colour our hair after asking so many questions and looking through their awesome hair colour menu!

Makannnn time! Eff our lives two Japanese restaurants nearby were closed so we crossed over to the other Mont Kiara Plaza and found out there's a Boost juice stall hahaha rushed to it right away and surprise surprise, the happy hour where each drink costs only RM10 nett was going to end in literally three minutes! Made a quick decision under tremendous pressure hahaha I got myself a cup of delicious strawberry smoothie. The berry blast smoothie was so friggin' good too. Took our drinks to Zanmai upstairs where we enjoyed such a good meal of salad, salmon, handrolls and sushi! Yums, what a tummy-fulfilling day! :)

All in all, it was such a happynyappy day and it felt really good you know. 

I'm glad I get to experience so much positive vibes today and I really appreciate it. 
Also, I was recently gifted a really good book by someone special and it made me see things a little more differently.

Let's hope this feelings lasts. Please.
