Feeling Down With Love - My Romance Book Short Story

Hello there ;) Mimi's here.

At my age, I gotta admit - I want so much things in life. You know, things like money, home, financial security, romance, cute bf and all those stuff a girl should have. But as much as I like to dream, real life is much harder. For instance, I just started studying and it's still a long way for me to go to have my degree and find a job. 

This might sounds lame: but the only place where I can find several of dreams come true is through reading. My complete lack of relationship with men make me desire something else and the only safest way (without getting my heart break) is through fictional book, one in particular is romance. Whenever I pick romance novel; that's when everything started. I like it when that main male character ask the girl of his dreams hand for marriage and when they kiss, is like all those unrequited dreams of mine are automatically restored. Every love fantasy and dream are being fulfilled in here and my feeling is.... indescribable. I felt like for each moment and money spend is absolutely worth it. Just imagine if any of those incidents mentioned in those novel comes alive, there must be full of love in the air... And I know the world would be a better place for someone...which namely ME.

I think I might pick up new romance book soon to read... 

Thank you for reading this entry. Goodbye for now.

An example of my favorite selection for romance book.
Ms. Jude Deveraux is one of my favorite writer of all times.

Hanging out at Popular bookstore!

Hello there ;) Mimi's here.

Hari yang membosankan pada mulanya telah menjadi hari yang paling menyeronokkan apabila aku, bro aku, and my dad bercadang untuk pergi ke Jaya Jusco Ayer Keroh, Melaka. Kami bertolak tu adalah dalam 8.00p.m, then sampai lebih kurang pukul 9.00 p.m. Ya, memang aku tau agak lewat time yang di pilih tu, but bila hati sudah berkeras mau pergi juga, who can change my mind right? Selagi Jaya Jusco ni tak tutup gi, selagi tulah takde alasan bagi aku untuk tidak menapak... Hehe, nampak jelasnya ketegaranku di situ untuk melopong tengah-tengah malam buta kan? Well... dah aku ajak pastu ayah aku setuju. Nak wat camne kan?

Takkan nak di tolak peluang keemasan sebegini? Itu satu kesengalan namanya...

Besides, aku datang sini memang aku ada tujuan pun. Tujuan utama aku dalah untuk beli the latest English romance novel. Kalau korang nak tau, aku semenjak masuk matrik ni dah die-hard-fan balik, novel-novel english ni semua. Dulu time high school pun suka gak baca, but taklah serious sampai nak berbeli-beli ni semua. Selalu pinjam from library je. Itu pun pinjam bukan under nama aku (nak buat card kena bayar RM1.00 ke hapa, tak kuasa den), but one of my member girls punya. Untung aku leh wat penjimatan 100% camni. Dahlah nak pinjam buku satu sen pun tak bayar, buku tak/lambat pulang pun bukan aku yang kena. Kih kih.... Boleh je nak pedajal member I tu guna cara ni, but tak buat pun sebab I ni baik okeh? Jenis pinjam je buku, pulang on time. Orang berbudi, kita berbahasa... ye tak?

Alasan aku je. Nasib jelah member tu rajin nak melayan kerenah aku yang kedekut nak mam@#s ni.

Okay, berbalik semula ke cerita Jaya Jusco tadi.... Pemandangan pertama aku yang ku sebaik sahaja melangkahkan kaki masuk ke dalam Jusco adalah.... Supermarket! Vege, fruits, meat and all other foods stuff you all takyah cakaplah - sudah mula melayang-layang di depan mata ni, but aku tak heran pun tu semua because aku dah ada matlamat yang lebih utama. Book hunting! So, instead of jejakkan kaki masuk kat dalam Supermarket and start capai-capai barang, mataku busy mencari escalator untuk ke tingkat atas. Nasib orang tak ramai pun, so cepat lah sikit kami sampai kat depan POPULAR Bookstore tu...

Bila masuk je dalam bookstore, mula lah kan aku melangkah ke favorite spot aku untuk mencari buku. Terpaksala aku meredah manusia sikit yg rata-ratanya orang Chinese. Kagum tol aku ngan golongan ni. Rajin betul mereka ke sini untuk beli buku, kan? Patutla pandai semacam je. Tak macam aku, baca 1 buku pun sebulan sekali. Tambah-tolak, setahun cuma 12 buah buku jer... haha... anyway, tak kisahlah kan? Yang penting I masih rajin untuk mengangkat dan membaca buku, ye tak?

Since Jusco tutup adalah dalam pukul 10 lebih gitu, lepas beli buku je - kita orang terus belah building. Dah dapat kehendak hati kan, so apa mau tunggu lagi? Dalam perjalanan balik tu, mulalah kan hati ni nak girang tak terkata-kata sebab tak sabar-sabar nak balik dan baca buku. Tetiba terasa pula diri ini bagaikan 8 tahun lagi... Haha... agak pelik perasaan ku ini... tapi itulah ceritanya kalau dah hanging out di POPULAR Bookstores.

Thanks for reading this entry. Goodbye for now.

Perfect Jazz Singers In My Ears: Norah Jones, Renee Olstead, and Melody Gardot

Hello there ;) Mimi's here.

Okay, so I gotta admit, when I'm bored or lonely... I found music as a great way to break free. Thus, its no wonder for an eighteen year old like me to have her own preference in music and musician. Lately, I found myself listening to these three musicians. Here they are....

1.) Norah Jones

Born: 1979 (American Singer & Actress)

Beautiful, super talented and a Grammy-winning artist.... That's what I could come out with when I think about this first singer; Norah Jones. I been listening to her since I was twelve years old and I never could quite forget about that beautiful big sister who plays splendidly at her grand piano before she starts singing her songs. Actually, forget her great piano playing - her soothing singing abilities alone can sway you for miles and miles away. As an avid fans of JAZZ songs, I would say, she's by far - my absolute favorite. p/s: Do you know that not only she can sing a good jazz, she also acted in a movie called 'My Blueberry Night' (2007)? Check it out, the movie is sweet just like her!

2.) Renee Olstead

Born: 1989 (American Singer & Actress)

As a new addition to this list, I didn't know know that Renee Olstead is a talented jazz singer! Sure, I seen her act in a sitcom "Still Standing" many years ago (acting her part as an obnoxious teenager) but never, in a million years I would take her as a serious singer. Therefore, it's mind-boggling how this talented actress-turned-singer doesn't become a singer first. Her voice is amazing! If you take a time to hear her voice, you know that she sounds like a legit jazz singer. If you don't know where to start, than seek for a song called 'A Love That Will Last', an OST from Princess Diaries 2. She surely doesn't disappoint. 

3.) Melody Gardot

Born: 1985

Sultry voice, incredibly luscious body and sweet whisper, there nothing that Melody can't do that wouldn't make me fall more in love with her.  Her first video music ever, "Baby I'm A Fool" really are one of the first songs I like which showcase me a different type of kind of musician she is. I had heard two of her albums so far, and many had become my favorites. I'm looking forward to see her drop next album and fall in love with her again!!
