When we got there the place was packed and the line was so, so long. I told ABE to look for a place to sit and I would stand in line. It would not take long I told him....maybe 10 minutes or so.
I stood in line for almost 20 mins
Queuing for the donuts was quite sensory yet tormenting. You could actually follow the beat with every almost-perfect dough churned out by the high tech donut machine placed closed just behind the cashier counter. That got my lips dried up and hunger building.It was a good 20 minutes queue when my turn finally came.
Found this on Wiki about J.CO Donuts. It is a bakery retailer in Indonesia specialising in doughnuts and coffee. The company is owned and managed by Johnny Andrean, a famous Indonesian hairdresser.
When took my first bite of the almond & sugar donut...it's different...it's soft, less cakey, very light and very delicious. The topping was a real sin....yummy...yummy....sedap nyerrr!!! And...we both sat there for sometime satisfying our sweet cravings.

These comments came from 60 Minutes Correspondent, Andy Rooney (CBS).
As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.
If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game , she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.
Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.
Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons.
Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress.
Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?", here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!
Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

MALAYSIAN men prefer Indonesian women for wives because they are more pleasant and enticing, a lecturer told Utusan Malaysia.
Oh... really ka??
According to Prof Dr Ahmad Atory Hussain of Universiti Utara Malaysia said Malaysian men were attracted to Indonesian women because they were slimmer and more charming. The report also mentioned that many Malaysian men choose to have Indonesian women as wives. The hantaran to marry an Indonesian woman is cheaper.
No kidding?? To all those dear men desperately seeking for their "Susans", I just have this one comment.
Consider this.......women are like apples on trees.
We are a confident lot who have the ability to do anything we set our minds to. We are health conscious, independent, opinionated and self sufficient. We command respect in the hearts of the men.
So to all you knights in shinning amour out there….get the message? Cut that macho crap..be brave, work harder.
Pick your apples right. Go get yourselves those good ones!!!

She will be seven this March. Where has the time gone? Every time her birthday rolls around, I reminisce about the day I got to know I was pregnant of her. After many years of trying to conceive, I sort of gave up on trying to get pregnant. I remember having this conversation with a friend. "Aku rasa aku ni dah mandul kot...after having 2 kids." And we laughed our lungs out over that remark. And then, there I was...pregnant!! Oh nooo....a baby on the way!!!
When my gynae, Dr Haris told me..."Yup..you are pregnant alrite. And baby is due in March" Waaaa.....didn't know if I should cry and scream or leap with joy. The last time Dr Haris said this same line to me was a long, long time ago....8 years to be exact.
Nissa - 3 years
A baby would be nice...but the 9 months would be a challenge. Both of my earlier pregnancies had been awful. My morning sickness would start from the time I knew I "got knocked" and would prolong till the day I delivered.
A good 7 years have passed since that visit to the gynae. And now..before we knew it, our "little baby" Nissa is getting on the bus and heading off to school. Tears welled up in my eyes as I became nostalgic, and marveled at my sweet little cherub who has grown into a pretty, young girl.
