Escaping From Your Boss - Within Your Cubicle!

Don't think I'm gonna try this anytime soon :P

Men Shave While Driving?

I've never seen a man shaving while driving until this morning on the LDP. One hand was on the steering wheel and the other clutched a razor. The best part is he looked way too casual and didn't look like he was dressed for work (made me wonder if he was gonna change into a shirt and tie while driving).

Alright, sure. If you wanna shave while driving, fine. But don't hold up the traffic on an already conjested road. I thought we women were bad enough - with the makeup-applying, daydreaming and sms-ing while driving but I guess men are not so different after all?

I Feel Like a Laddoo

The one thing I've always loved about the festival of lights was the muruku and laddoos that I get to munch on. Up till now, I think I've eaten some truckloads of laddoo that I actually feel like one (sigh..)

Anyways, to all those who are celebrating, Happy Deepavali! :)

Twenties Girl - A Kinsella Bestseller

The minute I saw this book at MPH, I just knew I had to have it. A Sophie Kinsella enthusiast, I'm a big fan of her Shopaholic book series and I was sure Twenties Girl had to be a good one. I wasn't disappointed. :)

The story basically revolves around Lara, a woman in her 20s who suddenly gets frequent visits from the rebellious ghost of her great-aunt Sadie - who's all about flapper dresses, headbands with feathers, swizzle sticks, "Tally-ho!" and the Charleston (basically, the epitome of a 1920's girl).

Meanwhile, Lara's this gullible but quirky 27-year old who's going through quite a few hiccups in her life. She just got dumped by the "perfect" man and her BFF/business partner has ditched to Goa. To make matters worse, Sadie haunts her persistenly to help find a missing necklace of hers. Apparently, she can't "pass on" without it.

Naturally, the book is filled with dosages of Kinsella's Brit humor at every corner. There are hilarious scenes that will have you rolling on the floor with laughter including, the one where Sadie gets Lara to ask this handsome stranger out on a date, everyone thinking Lara has lost her mind when she's seen talking into thin air and especially where Lara - all decked out in complete 1920s gear, walks into an average London bar to meet her date.

I've read this book twice and sometimes when I feel the need for some humor, I would turn to my favourite parts in the book. Trust me, if you loved reading the Shopaholic series, this is a must-read. Twenties Girl should be every girl's best friend :).

Join the Terry Fox Run KL 2009!

Yep, the Terry Fox Run is on again this Nov 1st at Tmn Tasik Perdana (Lake Gardens). I attended last year's run (can't believe a year has gone by!) with my colleague and it was overwhelming to see the amount of support people gave for a cause I feel strongly about - cancer awareness.

I hope the support would be even more at this year's event. No registration or donations are necessary. However, if you would like to donate, you could purchase the official T-Shirt for 25 bucks each. The t-shirts will be sold at the event itself so if you couldn't get one ahead of time, don't worry. Check out this year's design below.

For a recap, here are the details:

Where: Tmn Tasik Perdana (Lake Gardens)

When: Nov 1 (Sunday)

Time: Flag-off @ 9am (You should be there by 8.45am)

For more information on the Terry Fox Run 2009, head here.

On another note, parking will be a problem. You may not be able to find parking inside Lake Gardens (even if you do, you would get stuck in a jam heading out). So I recommended you to park outside the area and walk in. It's a long walk so come early! :D

Da Vinci - The Genius Exhibition @ National Science Center

Like most people, I was never bothered to know much about Leonardo Da Vinci until I read Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code'. Before this, my only knowledge of Da Vinci was that he was gay and he painted the world-famous Mona Lisa.

Dan Brown's book made me do some research on Da Vinci and his controversial 'The Last Supper' painting, and as it turns out, he was not only an artist but also an inventor, scientist, engineer and much more. To learn more about Da Vinci and his work, click here.

If you're an enthusiast, you'd be glad to know there is an exhibition at the National Science Center, which is showcasing Da Vinci's work and probably a history of him. Thanks to Daniel, I've now got two tickets to catch the Da Vinci - The Genius Exhibition :D

If you'd like to get your hands on free tickets, head here!
