loose vs lose

okay..im not THAT good in english..but i got a thing where i cant stand when people make mistakes with the english language..it sounds harsh, i know..but i meant it in a good way..so here i am, layan-ing twitter, when i read one of the post.."I cannot loose her..she's all ive got"..i mean, what does that supposed to mean??

a lot of people are mixing up lose and loose..in particular, a lot of people are writing loose when they really mean lose..here are the definitions of the two words..got from an online article..

loose
[lOOs] adj not fastened or pre-packed; not tied up or confined; able to move freely; not tight, not firmly fixed; not close-fitting; careless, inaccurate, vague; dissolute, immoral; not closely woven; flabby; (of bowels) inclined to diarrhoea; l. box stable or van in which an animal can move about; at a l. end uncertain what to do next; unoccupied ~ loose adv in a loose way; play fast and l. behave rashly or unscupulously ~ loose n release; on the l. free from restraint; on a spree; ~ loose v/t untie, undo; release from confinement or constraint, set free; detatch; fire (gun); shoot (arrow); (eccles) absolve.

lose (p/t and p/part lost) [lOOz] v/t and i no longer have; be deprived of by accident or misfortune; mislay, fail to find; fail to get or win; be too late for; be bereaved of; waste; be defeated or beaten; suffer loss, become worse off; fail to hear, see or understand; cause or allow to perish; (of clock or watch) go too slowly; (refl) miss the right path; become absorbed in; l. one's head become flustered, panic; l. one's temper grow angry; l. one's way fail to find the right path; l. out (US) be defeated after a struggle.

still confused?? well, maybe these examples could help you..

Examples : This knot is too loose.
Please do not lose my book.
I had better not lose that file.

possible bday present from my mak..

hm..how should i start this..well, my mom was just coming home from her school when she said.."Adik, nak kucing tak untuk hadiah hari jadi tahun ni??" and i was like..WHAT???? huhu..so she started talking about how her colleagues bought the so-called-senang-jaga persian cats and they were happy about it..since i LOVE cats so so much, my mom thought she would buy one for my upcoming birthday..

well, all of my close friends would know that i love cats..in fact, i used to have one when i was in college..called her manja..miss her by the way..anyway, back to my mom..so, i was of course, ecstatic!!! i mean, is it possible that my long-live dream will finally come true?? i was feeling that way until i asked her the cost of the persian cat..and that was when i felt like this big, huge rock crashed my heart..wouldnt you if the cost is RM 900++??

i immediately said no..not that i dont want it..i mean, i WANT it..so so bad..but almost rm 1000 for a cat?? that's just ridiculous..my mom of course said that she wouldnt mind buying it for me..but how would that make me feel?? she worked hard for the money, and would i be okay if i knew that she spent it on a cat?? for my freaking birthday?? that would haunt me forever!!

so right now, i honestly dont know what my mom will do..will she buy it?? if she does, i swear i will pay her back when i got my own money someday..if she doesnt..well, i'll buy one for my 40th birthday..hehe..the idea of buying a persian cat really intrigues me..can you imagine how cute a persian cat could be..maybe this will help you..(^_^)


omona!! so so cute!!


oh how i miss em!!

cant sleep..all of a sudden, i just remembered my close friends in college..gosh, i miss them so so much..(T_T)..ya Allah, peliharalah persahabatan kami~

A Farewell to False Love..


A Farewell to False Love
By : Sir Walter Raleigh

Farewell false love, the oracle of lies,
A mortal foe and enemy to rest,
An envious boy, from whom all cares arise,
A bastard vile, a beast with rage possessed,
A way of error, a temple full of treason,
In all effects contrary unto reason.

A poisoned serpent covered all with flowers,
Mother of sighs, and murderer of repose,
A sea of sorrows whence are drawn such showers
As moisture lend to every grief that grows;
A school of guile, a net of deep deceit,
A gilded hook that holds a poisoned bait.

A fortress foiled, which reason did defend,
A siren song, a fever of the mind,
A maze wherein affection finds no end,
A raging cloud that runs before the wind,
A substance like the shadow of the sun,
A goal of grief for which the wisest run.

A quenchless fire, a nurse of trembling fear,
A path that leads to peril and mishap,
A true retreat of sorrow and despair,
An idle boy that sleeps in pleasure's lap,
A deep mistrust of that which certain seems,
A hope of that which reason doubtful deems.

Sith* then thy trains my younger years betrayed,[since]
And for my faith ingratitude I find;
And sith repentance hath my wrongs bewrayed*,[revealed]
Whose course was ever contrary to kind*:[nature]
False love, desire, and beauty frail, adieu.
Dead is the root whence all these fancies grew.

finally..dato ct nurhaliza has a twitter acc!!

yup..she's my favourite celebrity here in malaysia n she now has a twitter account..hee..so so excited..what are you waiting for..let's follow her!!! ops, by the way, happy 32th birthday to siti nurhaliza..may Allah bless you!!

8 tricks for boosting your metabolism..

read this article a few days ago..thought i should share it with you..enjoy!!

1.Do Intervals

Mixing in fast-paced intervals raises your metabolic rate higher than doing a steady cardio workout, and will continue to do so up to an hour after you’re done, says Kristin McGee, a trainer and Pilates instructor whose client list includes Tina Fey and Bethenny Frankel. An Australian study also found that women who did intervals while they were biking lost three times as much fat as those who worked out at a steady pace. If you’re a walker, simply walk at your normal pace for 1 to 2 minutes, then speed-walk for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat the sequence 10 to 15 times.

2. Opt for Caffeine
It’s time to hit Starbucks. A study published in the journal Physiology & Behavior shows that coffee drinkers have a 16 percent higher metabolic rate than those who abstain or drink decaf joe, because caffeine increases your heart rate and stimulates your central nervous system. Spread out the cups over your entire day to keep your metabolism running at a boosted rate—just be sure to have your last cup by early afternoon so you can hit the pillow with no problems later on.

3. Add Some Ice
Though the increase is modest, there is some evidence that drinking cold water can cause a slight surge in metabolic rate. Since your body maintains a core temperature around 98.6°F, cold water will be brought to that temperature after being consumed and calories are burned during the warming process. Discovery Health deduced that you can burn up to 70 extra calories a day if you follow the common rule of drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of cold water per day. Need another reason to up your water intake? Researchers at the University of Utah found that participants who drank half of the recommended amount of water per day (four 8-ounce glasses), not only showed signs of dehydration, they also experienced a 2% decrease in calories burned per day.

4. Eat a Big Breakfast
It’s time to nix the oatmeal with skim milk. Instead, start your day with a fatty breakfast, including eggs and even a piece of bacon, suggests Molly Bray, PhD, lead author of a recent study showing that a fat-filled morning meal will jumpstart your metabolism for the day faster than a lowfat, low-calorie breakfast. Another study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that people who eat 22 to 55 percent of their total calories at breakfast gain 1.7 pounds over four years. That’s not bad considering those who eat 0 to 11 percent of their calories in the morning gain nearly 3 pounds.

5. Drink Green Tea
Not only does green tea contain enough antioxidants to keep colds and the flu at bay, but it also does wonders for your metabolism, according to a study published in the journal Phytomedicine. Researchers found that people who drank the equivalent of three to five cups daily for three months shaved 5 percent off their body weight. Green tea contains ECGC, a plant compound that stimulates your metabolism, says Rania Batayneh, MPH, a nutritionist in private practice in San Francisco and Portland, Oregon, and founder of Essential Nutrition consulting.

6. Don't Skimp on Dairy
Calcium-rich foods and drinks, including milk, yogurt and cheese, increase the rate at which fat turns into waste, says a study by researchers at the University of Copenhagen published in the The Journal of Nutrition. It doesn’t matter what form of dairy product you’re consuming as long as the serving size is adequate (keep it lowfat!)—either a full glass of lowfat milk or 6 ounces of yogurt is perfect. Also, the study noted that you have to actually ingest the calcium in its natural form; supplements don’t work due to differences in the chemical makeup.

7. Build More Muscle
Gaining lean muscle mass boosts your metabolism and makes losing weight much easier, McGee says. If you add just 5 pounds of muscle to your body, you’ll burn up to 150 more calories per day without even working out those muscles. And, you can burn an average of 600 calories per hour during your cardio workout thanks to that extra muscle mass. “Muscle burns more calories than fat does, even at rest, so any strength-training activities to build lean muscle are excellent,” McGee says. The key is to challenge all your muscles and do a full-body strength-training workout, hitting your core, arms, legs, back and chest.

8. Pick Up Heavier Weights
By using heavy weights at a very slow rate—twice as slow as would feel natural—you break down your muscles (you’ll know the weights are heavy enough and the workout slow enough if you start to shake after just a few lifts or squats). Researchers at Wayne State University found that when your body repairs those overworked muscles, it causes your metabolism to increase for up to three days after the workout.

for the bad boys out there..


Run Devil Run
By : SNSD a.k.a Girls' Generation

Behave. You’re too much of a bad boy.
You’re too curious.
I was cheated on at that time,
all because of you.

No fun, no manners.
You, devil, devil, you, you.

You changed one letter (one letter)
of all the girls’ names
in your cellphone.

I can smell the abundance of perfume on you.
Explain to me, (explain to me), who’s it is.

(Hey) That habit, of you meeting girls
without me knowing, still didn’t go away?
Even if you run, it’s obvious.

You better run, run, run, run, run.
I won’t give in, I’ll just kick you.

You better run, run, run, run, run.
Even if you beg me not to leave, I don’t care anymore.

(Hey) I’ll come back even better
and i’ll get revenge. Don’t forget it.

You better run, run, run, run, run.
You’re caught, and i’m angry.
Run, devil, devil, run, run.

Even next to me,
you’re with another girl.
When i’m not here, (not here)
you’re a super playboy.
Raise your chin, and respond to me. (respond to me)

No fun, no manners.
You, devil, devil, you, you.

You better run, run, run, run, run.
I won’t give in, I’ll just kick you.

You better run, run, run, run, run.
Even if you beg me not to leave, I don’t care anymore.

(Hey) I’ll come back even better
and i’ll get revenge. Don’t forget it.

You better run, run, run, run, run.
You’re caught, and i’m angry.
Run, devil, devil, run, run.

No fun, no manners.
Run, devil, devil, run, run.

There’s no one else like me, anywhere.
You made a mistake.
I’m so much better than all of those other girls.
What do you want to do with all that? Do you think you’re that great?
Didn’t I tell you not to play around?
Didn’t I tell you to be good to me until I stopped loving you?

You better run, run, run, run, run.
I won’t give in, I’ll just kick you.

You better run, run, run, run, run.
Even if you beg me not to leave, I don’t care anymore.

(Hey) I’ll come back even better
and i’ll get revenge. Don’t forget it.

You better run, run, run, run, run. (you better run, run, run)
There’s so many guys in this world,
so it doesn’t matter if you’re not there.
Until the day I find a boy that only cares for me,
I’ll wait by myself.

video



By Myself - Tiffany

please, just pass by pretending like you don't see me
please, don't even give me a glance
in the days that are like the sandy winds
don't give anything to me

folding away my one heart
hiding my one tear
like it's the first time we've seen each other, like we're strangers
just pass by. it has to be like that.

by myself, i say my love, send away my love
in the folds of the lonely accumulated memories, the tears hang

even if you're far away, i hope that you'll be happy
i bury my love deeply within my heart

in the next world, when we are born
then, we'll look at each other face to face
let's be born so that we don't lose weakly in front of fate again

so that i may be a flower in front of you
i'll sing a song for you
as one's girl, as one man's lover
i want to always live by your side

by myself, i say my love, send away my love
in the folds of the lonely accumulated memories, the tears hang

even if you're far away, i hope that you'll be happy
my love, deeply within my heart...

though it hurts, though it will hurt, i will never cry
because there is no such thing as farewell in my love

when this life ends, in the next world, us two
let's love, for sure. let's love, for sure.
us two.

hepy new year..welcome 2011..

Happy New Year evryone..may the dawning of this New Year, fill your heart wit new hopes, open up new horizons and bring for you promises of brighter tomorrows..

♥ kay ♥
