Music & Lyrics ( 2007 )

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Talking abt Hugh Grant...Oh nooooo.... He's my fave star. His newest movie,Music n Lyrics,really makes me laugh.Thank God we did watch it on Sat nite. Gak rugiiiiiiii

Alex Fletcher is a washed-up '80s pop star who's been reduced to working the nostalgia circuit at county fairs and amusement parks. The charismatic and talented musician gets a chance at a comeback when reigning diva Cora Corman invites him to write and record a duet with her, but there's a problem--Alex hasn't written a song in years, he's never written lyrics, and he has to come up with a hit in a matter of days. Enter Sophie Fisher, Alex's beguilingly quirky plant lady, whose flair for words strikes a chord with the struggling songwriter. On the rebound from a bad relationship, Sophie is reluctant to collaborate with anyone, especially commitment-phobe Alex. As their chemistry heats up at the piano and under it, Alex and Sophie will have to face their fears--and the music--if they want to find the love and success they both deserve.

Feb 25th:Bday Party @Union,KY

After Ladies Nite Out,the next day was attending Herlina's son's bday party @ KY.Nia picked me.We were late.When we arrived,they almost finished having lunch. We met some new faces ( Erwin & Grace from Dayton, Tio n Diva from Hyde Park ).

I was really hungry. Herlina cooked delicious food. Nia was so excited seeing Asinan Bogor ( maklum org Bogor ).^__^. I like the Ketan Duren. Yummyyyy.........

We spent quite long time there.Chit chat with some friends and then having a bite of cake.Ziplock tidak lupa. ^__^.

Nia n Dennis dropped me at the bar around 6.30pm. Last word " Kenyanggggg ". Ha ha ha.

Thnks for the invitation,Herlina. Thanks for the transportation,Dennis.As Dennis said when they picked me," Taxi". Ha ha ha. Jadi maluuuuu.

Feb 24th : Ladies Nite Out ( China Garden Buffet & Cinema )

Cie Ira picked me up at the bar around 6 pm.We drove to meet Dece at Papadeux ( seafood resto ). Wuih... it's packed there.I called Dece whether she had reserved the seats.She said no.She's on the way to meet us.I check the waiting list,the server said 2.5 hours waiting. Oo... no way.

Dece arrived and then we changed our plan.We went to China Garden Buffet.I've never been there,but I've seen their flyer every week.

I didn't take many pics in that resto.So far,the food was ok.The service was baaaaaaaadddddd.

I was waiting for the snow crab leg.I asked the waitress to get some for me.She said," OK",then walked away!!!!!! She even didn't go to the kitchen bringing me some.Then again,after a couple minutes,I asked a waiter to bring me some.He went to the kitchen and yelled.

Waiting for another minute,asking for it again,nobody came with the crab.
I had enough.I went to the front door and complaint to the cashier.He went to the kitchen,and soon the waiter brought us a plateful of crab. Huhhhh!!!!!

When I had some more food,I saw another lady asking for something.The same girl said," OK",but went to the other direction.Pengen dijitak nih org!!!!

I saw the waiter was sweeping the carpet behind a customer.I heard him saying," Aw...I am eating here,he's sweeping behind me." He pointed his hand to the carpet. Kacauuuu!!!!!!!!!

Bathroom is so bad.The atmosphere isn't nice. Ya sutralah.....once , will never ever come back there.

Dinner was over around 9pm.Didn't know what to do,we came out with idea watching movie ( Actually it's Ronnie idea).He wanted me spending time more with my friends,watching movie.Oh well.... we went to the Cinema.Looking for a good movie that Gillian can watch too.

We ended up watching Music & Lyrics. Awesome movie!!! Makes me fall in love more and more with Hugh Grant. Lucuuuuuuuu.

It's still raining when we came back home.It's icy rain.Well.... I was dropped at the bar around 11.30pm.

Capekkkkk,but exciting!!!

Feb 23rd:Dinner @Kabuto

Last nite me & Ronnie went to Kabuto.He called me earlier from the bar and said,' Hey,baby..get ready.We'll have dinner @Kabuto.Make a reservation,pls."

Wuih... makan lagi...makan lagi...

I called the resto,Endang answered me.I had him reserve 2 seats.He said,"It's available,Mei2.I can save seats for you.Levi will cook."

I told him we'd be there around 5.45 pm.

Ronnie came home and got ready.Dani called me."Mei2,how far are you ?We're saving your seats now." I told him not too far.

Later,I texted him,asked him to go ahead and cooked for us. But,when we arrived,Levi had been cooking.Dani said,'We've held for quite long for you.I am sorry, Levi started cooking. "

Levi asked us to wait for another table if we still wanted him. But,Ronnie seemed can't wait.So,we had Frank as our chef.

Kenyang lagi... kenyang lagi... ^___^

Dynasty Buffet - Colerain Ave,Cincinnati

Mo review nih...

I love this restaurant.Since last Sunday,I've come to this resto for lunch.Ronnie dropped me last week and picked me 1 hour later.

Again,yesterday,after church,he dropped me there again. I love the mussels.

Once you walk in,you'll see the statue welcomes you and on the hall,you'll see a big aquarium.

The atmosphere is so good. You can choose wherever you wanna sit. The resto provides a small bar, big tv, cosy seats. Once in a while there's a band will entertain the guests in the evening.

The food taste good. It has more than 50 varieties. Many kinds of ice cream,fruits,sushi,dessert and cakes.

The special food it has is Mongolian Grill.

Prices are affordable. I paid 9.04 bucks for lunch.

It's not a big deal,since it's All You Can Eat.

Now,the resto gives another treats. Once eat,you'll be given 2 coupons. 9 times meals,you'll have 1 free meal.

Kenyang banget kalo udh keluar dari Dynasty. Couldn't walk at all. ha ha ha.

Feb 19th - Menu Makan Siang

Telat bangun.... telat makan... Lagi pengen makan Corned Beef n Tumis Buncis Telur.

Wuih...Hadn't I gone to CAM,I wouldn't have known it's Chinese New Year!!!! I saw some stuff on the table. Ups.... it's the day!!!!!!!

Dang..... since I came here, I really forget abt the celebrations. I am totally lost.

I shopped for weekly needs and went to the table.My eyes captured nice and cute Piggy Bank. .I rememberred Cindy called me on Sat noon and said,"This is the Pig's year." Aghh.. so it is.

I couldn't resist not to buy one. I bought the envelopes,too. . I laughed at myself.I keep the envelope and might give some money to my niece n nephew later.



Ronnie laughed when I showed him the piggy bank. ha ha ha.He's never seen one before. He said,' Oh Gosh........"


I really love the piggy bank.It's soooooooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!! It's a female. I said to Mom," I wanna save some money here." Ha ha ha.

She's Black!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Maria and Rick came to pick Taider.Rick brought his 2 kids.I was in the basement when one of his kids came down to the basement.I heard he said,"There's a girl here!!! ".

Then,I went upstairs,checking my cooking.Atik ordered some food this week. Everyone was there (but Ronnie,he's at the bar ). The younger boy (Jacob) said,"She's black!!!!!!!" She pointed me.

Everyone laughed.Maria said,'No...she's from Malaysia.She's not from here." Jacob said,"She's black!!!!!!!! Look!!!!!!!!!!!!" . Ha ha ha.

I said," Yes, my hair is black,even my jacket is black." Ha ha ha.

He was quite.He stared at me for a moment and I said,"See??? My hair is black,but my skin is white." I came closer and put my hand next to him.Rick pulled his hand and compared. Ha ha ha. Jacob said," Oh... her skin is white. But she's black!!"

Maria said,"She isn't.She's from Asia, like Malaysia,Japan,Singapore ect." Maria continued,"Mei2, I am sorry.These kids come from country,they've never met other people.One time they went to town and saw black people,they're scared to death." My gosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Pantesan.. ternyata ada juga bule yg kampungan. .

I remember when we met westerns in our country,we were afraid to death and some call them " look like a white pig ". . Now...they do that to me. Oh my.... ha ha ha.. My bad...

She's black!!!! ha ha ha.......




Feb 16th : So Long, Taider!!!!!!!!!

Maria picked Taider this evening.He's so excited,I guess.Mom gave some dog food to be taken with.

The only one who missing him is Lucky. He's quite rite now. I checked him in the living room,being lonely. :(

Ronnie said,' You know,Ma,I don't think Lucky like being alone.He never chewed his legs anymore since Taider was here."

I bet Lucky forgot licking his legs cos he's excited to have a friend for a while.

Well...we'll see you again,Taider.. So long!!!!!!!!

Feb 11-13th : Wintry Blast!!!

I hate snow. It drives me crazy. Monday midnite the snow fell down again.It's so hard.We had to close the bar early ( thank God the open mic was done around 12pm).

I drove the escort and Ronnie drove the intrepid.I almost made an accident.The car I drove was spinned and blocked the road. Ughhhhhhhh... I saw Ronnie's behind me and slipped me from the other side.I almost hit him. I couldn' t see well and tried to drive again. Oh gosh.. there's another car behind me. I had to stop and let the others ( abt 4 cars ) behind me to pass.

Ronnie took another turn and we arrived at home safely.I couldn't put the car on the driveway.I got stuck and had to try 3 times to pass the driveway. Finally I gave up. I parked the car on the side road.

Tuesday,Feb 12th,Ronnie and Mom were worried abt the weather.Ryan called me,he said he'd be at the bar tonite and celebrated his bday with friends.

Since he was confirmed,I cooked some food for his bday.Ronnie didn't want me to be optimistic to have some customers tonite.

I prayed it would be ok.

Oh well... we got some customers last nite!!!! ( I'll post the pics later abt Ryan's bday ).

Tuesday nite we used one car only.

Wed noon,Feb 13th.I drove to the bar.It's kinda scary.The road is so icy.Thank God I made it to the bar.

I stayed at the bar for a couple hours and then went to buy some stuff and stopped at the bank.

Goshh... why winter this time is so annoying?????

Feb 9th : Hunting Skillet n Jacket

Finally,Mom went shopping and took me, Steph n Tony to Mall.She's buying a skillet,meanwhile Steph's looking for a jacket.

Mom had a hard time to decide which skillet she wanted to buy. Gak mau denger cakap sih,,pertimbangkan harga, butuh tutup kuali atau nggak, masalah size dll. Alhasil, bsknya dipulangin lagi tuh kuali.

Eh, plg ke rmh,malah salah pilih.Terpaksa pergi lagi ke mall,pulangin lagi, pilih model lain.Ujung2nya jatuh ke kuali yg ada tutupnya juga.

Ha ha ha....

I forgot what day,but Ronnie got a surprise from PNC Bank. In the afternoon,I saw a box in the maibox.I thought it's our check book.But,when I  opened, o la la!!!!!!!  Souvenir from PNC.

I covered back the gift and waited till Ronnie came home.

He's surpised when I handed him the box. He said,'What is it ,hun ?"
I said," Just open it."

He said,"WOW!!! I got a clock from PNC."
I said,' Yes. They know you have lots of accounts and save some there.They appriciate what you've been doing with the bank."

He showed the clock to Mom n Steph.



Now the clock is put in the office at the bar.





Feb 6th - The Thickest Snow Ever!!!

Duhhhhhhhhh.. Tuesday morning the snow fell like crazy. I woke up at noon, made some beverages orders and was ready for Wednesday for the delivery.Mom said," Mei, snow is really thick out there. I don't think you wanna go to work tomorrow."

Ha ??? Snow ??? I went to the kitchen and peeped from the window. Alamak!!!!! It's crazy!!!!!! It's just like a thick rain.

I called the agents and moved the delivery on Thursday.

Goodness... all the street were covered by snow.The news said thickness gonna be around 6-7 inches. Wuih!!!!!!!

Tuesday nite,we went to the bar. Ronnie shovelled the snow around the parking lot.We didn't expect many people would come.Alecia,the karaoke lady called off.

The phone rang.It's the tuesday customer, they wanted to come to the bar. Good!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally one by one showed up.They played some cds and sang on the stage. Thank God we had around 12 people at that nite ( they still wanted to come eventhough the snow was really bad out there ).

Feb 8th - New Camera Canon A630!!!!

Ufhhhh... what a day. I spent all day long at the bar today.Cleaning the back bar,had deliveries and then ready to go to HHGREGG.Nia called me!!! We're chatting while I was warming up myself in the car. He he he.

I returned a portable dvd player ( I bought another one ) .When I was on the way,Ronnie called me.He wanted me to buy a new camera.He said,"The company will pay you back."

So... I arrived at the store,took my ATMs and paid the bill. When I was done,I couldn't find my key. Ihhhh..where is it ???

I went back to the store and asked the clerks whether they saw my key. Nobody saw it. :(

I called Ronnie.Ronnie had me check all the counters I've stopped. I told him I couldn't find it.

The only way was Ronnie came and gave me the spare key.I was cold. I went back to the store and looked for it again...nothing...

I walked to the parking lot. Hey!!!!!!!!!! The key was ON TOP OF THE ROOF CAR!!!!!!!!!!!! How could I not see it ???????????

I took out all my stuff from my bag before and put on top of the trunk,but I didn't see the key on top of the roof. Silly Mei2!!!!!!!!

Thank God I found it.I was glad, cos I've been in the store abt 20-30 mnts,and nobody stole it. ^___^

I called Ronnie and asked him not to come.He laughed.

Roads still snowy,I drove carefully.I arrived at home and was ready to have dinner.

Thank God it's our off nite!!!!

( Plant ) Corpse Flower aka Bunga Bangkai

Lah... I thought it is only available in Indo. In fact,in England,they keep it one in England.

The titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum) has the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world. The largest single flower is borne by the Rafflesia arnoldii; the largest branched inflorescence in the plant kingdom belongs to the Talipot palm (Corypha umbraculifera). Due to its fragrance, which is reminiscent of the smell of a decomposing mammal[1], the titan arum is also known as the "Corpse flower" or "Corpse plant" (in Indonesian, "bunga bangkai" – bunga means flower, while bangkai means corpse or cadaver; for the same reason, the same title is also attributed to Rafflesia which, like the titan arum, also grows in the rainforests of Sumatra).

I smelt it once when I was in Padang ( had a field trip from college for 1 week ). Gosh...smells sooo bad.

But,it does look good :)

- 14.5 C ( The Coldest Ever )








This is the coldest weather I've ever had.

This winter is the wierdest ever. After 2 years ago,we had the thickest snow,this time we have the most terrible weather.It's veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy colddddddddddddddddd.


Yesterday we watched tv,some schools and company have 2 hours delay,some are closed.

This morning Ronnie woke up and checked the temperature.He said,' -15C." Alamakk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to the bar ,picked some food ...Guess what?? It's freezing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Steph called and asked to be picked up from school.I was cold to death, struggled to fight the cold,held the steer so hard and push my back.I felt my head was so hard,too.

Tonite,the weather don't change a lot. It's -14.5 C.

Kalo udh gini,jadi kangen rumah. . Home sweet home... where sun is always there daily.







Meet Taider - The New Member









Taider... Maria's chihuahua dog was put in here for temporarily.
