Cari Bilik

Since I am going back to Malaysia in April with Magnar I have been crazily looking for accommodations for us to stay in. And I now realize something, hotels in Malaysia is starting to costing a bomb!

Hotels in Penang cost roughly about RM 400 (a night) and above so I had to start looking for other options if I wanted to save money but yet be able to stay somewhere comfortable and lies in a good location. 

I thought for a bit and started to wonder what are my options when it comes to finding cheaper accommodations at the great location and the first hit of Google was CariBilik.

CariBilik is a portal where people can publish houses/apartments for rent both long term and short term.

I surfed around the page and I found that had quite a few good choices. They had hundreds and hundreds of different locations and with different price range!

And the best part is, you can actually view pictures of the location before deciding too!

For example this one at Miami Green located at Batu Ferringi Beach which you can rent for a day, a week or a whole month going for a fraction of the price would pay at the hotel across the street!

In addition, the website has loads of rental houses/apartments/hotel/etc all over Malaysia, which definitely helps when you are going to travel about. I know for a fact they have loads of different places to rent especially in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johore (tourist areas)

For example, this one. It is located at the Golden Triangle region which hotels prices running sky high, CariBilik has a room for only RM135! That is definitely a good deal!

So really, CariBilik not only benefits someone looking for a long term rental, but also really appeals to tourist looking for a quick getaway.

350. Christmas wish list.

So, this are stuff I wish (probably need to buy myself) list. Some superficial, some I actually really need but cannot come to terms with parting with my hard earned money. Fml.

On no order of preference what-so-ever.

1. A new camera! SLR, not SLR, Digital, Polaroid, at this point whatever. Something so I can click and stare at gorgeous pictures.  Have decided to buy this myself with my Christmas money. 

2. A camera bag to put my camera in. If am going spend all my money on the camera itself, where am I to find money for a bag too? So Santa, I would like a nice bag for my camera please, A Crumpler 7 million dollar home in Red would be nice as I definitely do not want a ugly regular looking camera bag.

3. Hunter Boots in Navy Blue colour. Which Magnar sort of said he would get it for me, but even if he doesn't I would definitely go get it myself when I head to Scotland. So Santa, you don't have to get me this. :D

4. A new running shoe. A Nike Free would be lovely. You have no idea how ugly mine is since I use it all the bludeh time. I live in my working out shoes I am desperately in need of a new one

5. YSL Arty Oval ring. This ring is simply uh.mah.zing. 
6. A new agenda/wallet preferably from Mulberry or Miu Miu. Actually Santa, what I really want is a new bag, but since they cost way too much money. I can settle with smaller things I use daily. And as of right now, nothing is more important than a good organizer. :)
7. A new knitted sweater, in beige or camel.
Santa I freeze often because I simply do not have any warm clothes. :P

Santa, I need to go now, but I will come back with Part 2.

346. A quick update

So I see there are still actually a few people that visit my blog daily though my updates has been very scarce. 

Its about 1.16 am now as I am typing this. I just finished reading a chapter of my Python Programming homework so I understand a little bit more in class next week. And now I am going to go watch some Mtv's True Life and maybe browse the Kenzo show from Paris Fashion Week for some eye candy! 

I haven't been up to much lately, besides the usual but today Magnar and I took a quick trip to Oslo for the sake of it and I must admit that I throughly enjoyed myself. 

First we went over to the Kunstindustri museum (Art Industry? Museum)
Which in my honest opinion was far from being anywhere near my idea of a good museum, there was a bit to see but nothing to really write home about.

The fun-est thing we did there was playing at the children section, colouring patterns. Yeah, we never really grow up really.

Then we went over for some vegetarian food at Vega (which happens to be the same place I have been before with a different name) Completely recommended. Might write a review on it if I go there again!

Then we headed to Pascals for some macaroons, then some Geo-caching then we heading to Lillestrøm, had sushi and watched James Bond.

So yeah. That was my 10.10.10.
Hope your day was great too!

341. The day

Almost a month ago.

The day I stopped thriving for more is the day I have failed. 
And with that said, I don't think I will ever be truly happy.

Doesn't life sometimes feel like a serious joke.

Haha. Enough life lessons for now.

 I got to go back to doing homework. Woo hoo!
I know I said I was going to change some stuff off my blog, but I really haven't had the time!
My days more often than not, work like a clockwork.
I get up, get to school, go to work, read, sleep.

School is really really hectic, but I love it.

I can't see myself loving it now, but I know that in time, I will come to love it.
It does get a bit overwhelming sometimes with all the new things you have to absorb (and they are quite difficult no doubt), but if I was doing things I knew from before and it isn't a challenge I cant really then say I am learning, can I?

330. I think this is it.

I dont know if my blogging inspiration will ever come back again. At least, not for a while.
Not as long as I have other priorities I need to get straight! (Read: School)

And, I really really really want to do a little more Photoblogging, and less about me.
My life is hardly that exciting to keep everyone updated daily.

Though I am starting to think that I would never be able to do my Photoblogging, because I still cannot understand anyone who would pay more money for a camera than a Alexander Wang Freja boots, which I also sort of want! 

But, maybe in time, I'll get my priorities a little straighter. Then I'll get my ass to the store and get a myself a SLR. 

But for now, I shall focus on turning 20,
and everything else can wait for another 2 weeks.

329. Tired

As of today, I am Day 5 of my 10 day work streak. Insanely tired.
I am starting to get very tired in the mornings, I am always moody by the afternoon, and by night all I want to do is to just go to sleep.

Eff my life.

I am getting so completely dark it is craaaaaaaazy. I never really did like the sun.

Anyways, guess this is what people have been telling me about the working life.

In any case, I am going to start school again soon so that is insanely exciting, and before you burst out laughing, from this August onwards, I am going to be studying Math and Economics!
Yes, you read right.


I really dont mind the Economics ( Heck, it was the reason why I choose that course ), but the Math ... We'll just have to wait and see on that one.

I am trying to remind myself that I got in to the course with the grades I have, and so in many ways I am "qualified" for it? I shouldn't feel like the other students are definitely going to be smarter, better and probably more sane than I am, right?


Anyways, you awesome folks that keep visiting my blog though I have no longer seize to exist any longer, thanks! 
*virtual hug*

Now, time for work! Toodles!

328. Updates

Magpie <3

So, I wish I could do some awesome updating about how amazingly happening my life is right now, but unfortunately... my life isn't that happening!

My week usually consist of 10 days of work, then 4 days off. And incase you are ever wondering I have the most unglamourous job you can possibly imagine having. I work as a parking lady. I think it might get better soon though because Johanne is going to start working with me soon!

Other than that, I have only been lazing around doing nothing entertaining my smelly sister.

And if this information is of any importance, the Hjelmstad brothers are taking me and my sister out to Fratelli today! Mmmm. I love Fratelli, so I can't wait!

Shall update later!

325. Hello!

Hello lovelies! 

So, is everyone caught up in the Fifa games?
Is everyone busy working? Making a living?
Entertaining smelly sisters?

Well, I am doing a little bit of everything lately really. :D

Anyhow, here are some pictures from the past weeks. :)

On the way to the Hjelmstads!

Deserts, Nam!
Kate's cooking needs a category on its own really. Insanely good.

Okay, I was going to do a proper update but then my Sister only have icky pictures of me on her Facebook!

So I guess you just have to check back sometime tomorrow! By then, I would have tackled wrestled my sister for more pictures! Woo hoo! 

But for now, time to treat my Magpie icecream! :D

322. I am such a working woman!

Woo hoo!
It is now my second day at work! And I am completely knackered. 
And I love it. Well, it might still be too early to speak really, but

I love the feeling of a day well spent! 

Strange because the job really isn't that difficult, but I think standing in the sun for such a long time going ...
"That would be 20 NOK for parking please, have a nice day"
"It was not my decision to charge for parking, please ask the commune"

I don't really have much to write about anymore these days. :(
Magnar and I have been great as usual, so no moody rants or anything.

That is part of the reason why I want to try to focus on a blog with a bit more oomph? A bit more direction?

Anyways, before I start ranting away.
I think I am going to go to bed now.

Toodles, lovelies.

321. A new job!

Woo hoo!

So yeah, after months of job hunting I finally landed myself a job!
Completely unglamorous, but I am working as a parking ticket lady. (Due to the lack of better term)
Basically I think what my job is to collect money and hand some ticket over to people in Nebben. :D

I will be working over at Nebben so if you happen to be around, come say Hi.
But what are the possibilities of that happening right. :D

Mhmm mhmm!

I got to run now, but I shall update you later and show you all the stuff I got from Malaysia! 

This is going to be a good week, I can feel it already.

Sunday, 20 June 2010

320. 2 days.

So, only 2 more days before I get visit from Malaysia!
And, it already looks like it is going to be a hectic month!

The folks are arriving on late Tuesday evening.

Wednesday the sister and I have got plans. The mum and friend would probably sleep off jet lag. :D
Or do whatever old people do.

Thursday is the big meet up with the Hjelmstads.
Omg. I think I rather die.

No wait, Maybe it will be okay?
Oh, Thursday I am sure is going to be exciting!

Then Friday we are going to do some sightseeing!
Woo hoo!

Phew. I sense a long week ahead!

316. Hello

So, I might need some help.

I want to make my Blogger template completely plain, white with the ability to post large pictures.
What template do I use, and how to I edit my HTML so everything fits nicely?


I have tried the simple white plain template but that didnt work, and the HTML was wayyyy too complicated to mess around with.
And above all, after messing with it, I wasn't able to revert to normal again. FML.

And I am trying to remove my background too, as I intend on using bloggers template.
How do I do that?

313. Change of winds

New white shirt. I love.
White shirt count = 5

I think I have decided that I want to change my "style" of blogging?
I think I have grown up a bit since I first started and blogging about everything and anything about my day, therefore I am going to try to compose them a bit better.

My idea is, I am going to attempt to a more, picturesque, guide post thinggymajiggy.
Its hard to explain for now, but you'll see :D

I just something new, something different. A progression.

So, stay tune?
I might do a total overhaul by the end of this week?

Have a great day ahead!

307. Grzegorz Neimczuk

I forgot an important bit of my dinner yesterday, I got to personally meet this guy.

Heck, I even got to make dinner for him! 
The Røkholts attract a lot of awesome people over to their home!

I had completely no idea who he was, until Ellen (Johanne's mum) made him play the piano, and OH. MY. GOD. I was completely gobsmacked. 

Completely gobsmacked.

I feel that the Youtube video doesn't do him enough justice, but you got to believe me he was amazing on the piano! His emotions, his movements, every note he touches, *squeals*

  And, I for one am a huge sucker for anyone who plays the piano!
And when you can play like that ... *le sigh*

You know what is more amazing about this guy, it is that he was also an amazing normal guy with extra ordinary talents. He was really friendly, very humble and completely well cute. :)

So yeah, that was a fun day yesterday!

And if you are wondering, yes he plays music for a living and has won countless of music awards. So, he isn't just an ordinary guy who plays a piano.

306. Malaysian Dinner!

Johanne's family invited me over for their International Dinner yesterday and it so happened that yesterday was International Dinner from Malaysia!

Om nom nom nom!

And so, I was asked/they suggested that I made dinner and so I did!
I made some lamb curry and Roti Canai starters, A Chicken Briyani entré, and Fried Banana Friters with exotic fruits and longan caramel. 
(Okay, exotic fruits is just really longan and laici's from a can)

Well, it went down well with everyone, so I guess it wasn't so bad? I am quite biased over my own cooking so, only Johanne can tell you if the food was okay!

Wonder if I can interest you guys with the recipe for the desert for it was amazing!

And since I do not have any pictures from yesterday, here is more pictures of me. Because I am mega yummy too! :P HAHAHA

PS: Johanne, why was there no pictures yesterday? WHY?

305. 20 minutes.

What can one do when they have to wait a whole 20 minutes for the hair to set?
If you were me, this is what I do. 

All that, and making the blog post only took a total of 5 minutes. Meh.

Bored already.

And don't you dare say that rollers are for old people, they work aweeeeesome!
So, what else can I do for the next 15 minutes?

Oh, and have you checked this site out?

304. Salads!


On my vegetarian day today, can you tell?

I realize, I am a usually quite a vegetarian (as a diet plan, not because I love animals kind of vegetarian) Anyways, I am usually a vegetarian unless I start meeting people and eat out or happen to be at the Hjelmstads!

*Le Sigh, why do I have no self control? :(

And no, I am not a healthy eater at all, just yesterday I had a chocolate cake, a chocolate sundae and Chicken Tika! Ahh, what massive calorie bomb! :(

My idea is as such, either I can drive myself anorexic trying to get the ideal body (which I would, if I could) or every now and then allow myself to enjoy a little bit of life's little pleasures, just a little more in moderation. 

Sounds like a good plan?

300. Exams!

So, I have been doing everything else but my reading, because it is seriously getting amazingly brain numbingly boring. 

So, is it just me, or whenever comes I do everything else that suddenly need to be done, so I don't do what really needs to be done.

So far, I have done my hair twice, cleaned my computer, cleaned my room, changed my sheets, and decorate the room.

Ahhhhhh, exam shucks.

297. Updates

I know I havent been the greatest blogger, it is just that there is nothing to blog about.
That, and I honestly like the idea of a Photolog more than I like blogging, but I lack... well, photos.

Magnar isn't too great at being fast enough to give me my pictures either. So... yeah.

Uh uh uh!
Did I tell you that I get to borrow a dog for the past 3 days!
His name is Pen!
Wait, i go take a picture for everyone to see! 

Only, after this 3 days, I realized...
Maybe dogs aren't exactly for me.
