White Noise

Recap: It was like 4.50am in the morning, and I'm having a very hard time to sleep. If there's a book of 1001 position of sleep, I definitely sure that I've might tried 1002. Still wide awake.

I always sleep with my shirt off, and short pants (cause this is Malaysia, you know how the weather is). The stand fan is always on 2 or 3 because cold air makes me sleep faster. But this was not the case. I was still awake. At first, I thought like, "Mehhh, gonna fall asleep soon", but when it last more than two hours, my mind is getting fucked up, because damn I was sleepy, but my body refuses to shut down.

So, I reach out for my phone and turn this app I downloaded from PlayStore like 4,5 months ago. It's call White Noise Lite. Okay, I don't really know how to explain white noise, but I'll try my best. EXCLAIMER; this definition is from my own word, it's not really the real definition.

So, white noise is somewhat sounds that you often hear when everything is quiet. For example, in a quiet place like the library, very little sound but you can always hear the buzz from the air conditioning. Or, when you are alone in your house with t.v and radio switched off; you can always hear the sound of the wall clock ticking and ticking. It's noises that somehow helps us to relax and calm down.

There are a lot more examples of white noises. For instance, the rain. When it's raining, everything seems more relaxed and much of the time, if you are at home, you would have the sense to go to sleep, right?? Like "Yeahhh, hujan, sedap tido nie bohhh!". Or if you live near "hutan" area, you can always hear the sound of crickets, or when you lay down on the beach, close your eyes and listen to the sound of the wave of the ocean. ALL OF THAT is categorized as white noise. It helps you to cool down, relaxed and of course helps you to fall asleep.

Back to the White Noise Lite apps, it have collective sounds of these white noises, and I uses this as a measure of helping me to sleep. My favorite tracks are the sound of the rain and thunder. So back to my case, I grab my earphone and plug it in, tune in the white noise of my choice, adjust the right volume... and wallah! Suddenly it's afternoon already. I didn't even realize when I finally asleep. 

And the sounds are still playing when I awake. The best part of the app is, it didn't drain my battery. I do believe it only uses a small part of energy. I think it drains only 5% of the battery which is so little for a old phone like mine. So if you uses high end smartphones, it really doesn't effect your battery usage.

So if any of you guys are having trouble sleeping, I really recommended you to download a white noise apps. It doesn't have to be like what I've installed in mine, just look for something that suit your preferences. And it does not limited for sleeping purposes only. If you are trying to relax, or to study or just get away from stress and tension, you can just plug yourself to these sensational voices right from your phone.

It's so amazing that simple noises can creates such harmony and can help you to relax.

Trust me, okay.

To Swallow or Not To Swallow

I do not know why I have issues with food and drinks.
I do want to believe that there are other people in the world just like me.

The thing is, I love eating and drinking (the act, not the getting drunk kind of drinking)... but, I love eating the SAMEEEEEEEEEE thing, and I do not like so many other food and drinks. 


Eating out, always mean a tea o ais for me. No other drinks would cross my mind but these heart-melting tea o ais. Why? I do not know why. Probably because I see it the as the most common drink in my life. Growing  up, mummy always make tea. For evening drinks, or picnic, or sesi makan jepput, or right after some heavy house work, there it is, tea; hot, warm or cold. Another drink that I love to consume is Sunquick, but apparently there so little to none restaurant in Shah Alam offer Sunquick. So I'm quite bummed about that.

My momma, she sometimes makes coffee, but honestly, it's too bitter for me and it's always bitter no matter how much sugar or creamer I put in it. And I, don't do bitter... Anything coffee beans related drinks, I hate it. Besides, I have trouble sleeping if I drank it.  So that's is probably why I have such limited choices over drinks. 

To make it clear, I also drink other beverages aside of tea and sunquick. I am open to sirap bandung, milo, susu strawberry flavored (Dutch Lady only), vanilla flavored drinks, chocolate drinks, plain sirap would be good too. And I also enjoy teh tarik. That is probably about it. These are the only drinks I consume. Really, and seriously. 

Soft drink? I didn't forget about soft drinks... I HATE SOFT DRINKS. How on earth can a normal person swallow that junk through their throat?! It's like swallowing needles. Be it Pepsi, Coke, 100 Plus, Sprite, and any kind of the same shitty carbonated beverage, I DON'T TOUCH 'EM.

Fushion drinks... Hrm. A tea is perfectly fine, why would someone throw a lime or lemon inside it? Why? Why would there be Ice Lemon Tea? Why? It's ruined the whole flavor. Tea is exquisite enough, for me it didn't need enhancement. Any kind of enhancement, rusted out the originality of the product. Really guys? And this is teaaaaaaa. Then there sirap bandung cincau, bandung coke, limau ais, and all the weird things u fused together, doesn't seems normal to me... Air kelapa, it's like air ketuban or something. It doesn't look appertizing at all...

And this is about drinks alone. If I want to tell all about food, it would take three hour to finish writing this post. However, what I can tell is...

I hate vegetables. It ruined the flavor of any food. It's healthy, sureeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee... But it yucks. That is the only reason I don't eat them. Oh god, sawi, benci nya aku ngan sawi... However, I do like brocolli, cauliflower and carrot. Tomato? The inside of it seems like the tomato bernanah or something.

And I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee meat...... any meat. Except pork meat. If I have one day to live, I would be eating meat, meat, meat and butterrrrrrrr. :) Oh! Seafoodddddddd, yummmmmmmmmm!!! Prawns, shrimps, crabs, stingray... yummmm sedapnya!

The thing is, I probably have imagination about food wayyyy to much than any other people. I saw something, then I would imagine it into something else and my brain would translate it into two: YEAY or NASTY. So, mostly it went to nasty. But it's okay. I find it perfectly fine. I am fat, so it means I do enjoy life by eating. Just, not by the same thing other people had... That it...

Take it or leave it...

Being Tall

Being a tall person, I always have some advantages than the shorter ones. Like, I can look around easily, have nothing blocking my view. I can hide, put or take things at higher places, I can be a model (hehe) and so on. I think it's cool and I am so lucky to be a tall person.

However, sometimes being too tall give so much troubles and disadvantages. Thanks to 9GAG post today, it now expose to many people out there that being tall isn't always fabulous. I mean, just look at these pics I took from 9GAG.

Story of my life... :)

I'm An Alien.

Superbowl the other day, or Ellen Degeneres would say it as "Beyonce's Concert" for non-footballers fans. There was this commercial, a Calvin Klein commercial, debuting their new concept for men's underwear. So, the rating during the Superbowl games is peaking high, so good job CK to put commercial on such a prime time, bet they paid a lot.

Anyway, seeing the commercial... Hrm. I can honestly say, I feel like the most ugly person in the world. The dude in the commercial, he's a robot or something, with his hair pulled back in what ever the hell grease or oil or gel they use to stick his hair with; he looks like a freaking electronic machine, like a perfect specimen of a male human being, I've ever seen in my whole life.

This dude, is so perfect, with his ripped body and muscles, with that annoying "I'm so cool for doing CK" eyes, and I feel like, well, I am alien. I look nothing like him. And the model is younger than me. He's a kid. If he is the typical look of all men in this world, well, the rest of fat people like me, we really are maybe, in fact, an alien.

Go ahead, see this commercial. Girls, I know most of you probably gonna bounce and jump around seeing this, probably. The boys, hrm. If you have extra body weight and do mind about being obese, do not watch it. Or you going to need therapist afterwards.

Told you.

Double Celebration!

Today is my mum's birthday.

The woman who hold the name Zainun binti Yusof, were born in Kampung Dura, Hulu Terengganu on the 10th February of 1958 (Monday).

55 years later, happens to be a great daughter, a great wife, a great mother and a great role model to her four kids. My father who hold the heart of my mum is indeed, a lucky man.

I love you, Mok!

So last night, at midnight was awesome! My parents are in their bedroom, having some pillowtalk before sleeping, while me and my sisters were sneaking at the kitchen, setting the cake and thinking how to get my mum out of the room.

So my sister go get my mum, and she doesn't even have a clue of what is happening. Then we showed her the cake and we all burst into laughter! Haha. Good one! My mum don't even remember it's her birthday so it's awesome, her reaction is genuine.

Hopefully, she will have a great year ahead, a great health, and great time. :)

Also, it's Chinese New Year as well, and I sincerely also want to wish every Chinese out there, a very Happy Chinese New Year! It's the year of the snakes, and of course, a day before CNY, I saw a snake outside the gate of my house. So, is that a good luck or what, please somebody tell me what it means.

Happy Chinese New Year, once again!

Images mostly from Google Images. The cake is from my own collection!

:) That's all for now.

See Me Inside.

A friend asked me the other day. What's "seemoinside"? Why I use that word to name my blog, and what does it mean?

Great question. I haven't thought to explain this before, and now that someone finally ask, I can explain it and another post for this blog.

So the first word; SEE

The word "see" clearly means to look into something or at something. It's the vision that I see and experience and I translate it to my writing and I hope to share my vision to as many people as I can. Some people can relate to my story, but some can't and some might disagree, have negative thoughts of me, and that's the risk I am willing to take by putting myself in this blog. 

Moving on to the second word; MOI

"Moi" is a french word, which basically means "ME". This blog is mine, and the writings is by me and all the things I wrote here is what I experience and how I adapt and think of every thing that go revolves around my world. That's a lot of "and" word in a sentence, isn't it? Hahaha. Sorry about that. Different live, different stories. I have my own stories. Some are great, some are happy things and some just sucks. And by writing this blog, I honestly want to tell all my readers that everything happens for a reason, and it will shape our personality and mentality for future advancement. 

Last word: INSIDE

I purposely connects the last word of "MOI" and the initial of "INSIDE" because I don't want to repeat two letter. "Inside" is a way for me to ask for reader to click on the link and read my blog. If you want to read my  writings, you have to see and read it "INSIDE" my blog. Got it yet? I'm sure a lot of you do.

Well, yes. That's about it.
