Lalala before Bye-bye Sunday.

Learn to recite "Alhamdulillah" whenever you feel empty in life. There are so many who are going through so much compared to what you're in, Hartini.

Before i say goodbye to Sunday, Alhamdulillah...
Tomorrow is going to be better, InsyaAllah.

Kenapa cepat rasa tak puas?
Kenapa banyak sangat yang tak cukup?
Kenapa semua pun nak?

First weekend after Raya Holidays.

i was thinking if i am in KL during the weekend, i might be all around the town berhari raya - attending open houses and what not. well, i could always go window-shopping or SHOP at my favourite malls.

unlike here. Miri, i have to find the fun. the fun won't just appear out of nowhere. :)

I'm liking the companionship of my housemate Aishah. we get each other, not all the time, but we do. aishah, if you're reading this, thank you!

attended PETRONAS Ramah-Taman "Sentuhan Kasih" - Open House. it was in Eastwood Valley Resort. OK, not that bad. definately for people to mingle around and say selamat hari raya to everyone. stranger/not.

went to KakLaila's house. my neighbour. house neighbour and workstation neighbour. she's a great perso. She is. Never cares what others think, as long as she's happy. which i should take a good lesson from her nih! her daughter Iman, who is just so damn cute. she was just so quite but she smiles a lot!

This picture was taken when she was here for buka puasa last month.

Kawan-Kawan Saya.

Over the weekend, i get to meet 'ramai' important people in my life. at least some of them. :)

There's Zukry obviously. On Friday right after prayer. Picture - tak amek. ehehe. then, the next day, despite was at work malam tu, Zukry beraya with me. First stop, Haniff's engagement ceremony. tapi dah terlewat.

orang sumer dah balik, Hartini baru sampai. Both, Haniff & Naim glowed in pink. "Macam orang dah kahwin" - the first thing thing that popped in my head when they were rushing to the tent sebab Hujan. tengah bercanda ria mengambil gambar. Mane gambar? Apsal nak sorok-sorok plak??? dah lah tak amik gambar tetamu-tetamu yang hadir... sabar jelah. Adli, Sarah tu GF you ke? cam teman tapi mesra je. i don't think Adli is reading this. Haniff lah tolong jawab kan... :P

Nilah orangnyer. picture them in pink instead of green. Ni masa Teman & Mesra lagi... i curi gambar you haniff.

Mawarni of course, datang sampai dua kali. at my request. first was on Friday, lunch time. she was with her two friends. one from Kelantan and the other was from Tawau.

Mawarni - bile nak g umah u plak ni... malam ni Ok kot. tengok dulu camne.

Then, yesterday she was here again with Sajidah! my long-time-no-see friend. she was in Ohio for 6 years kot. we send cards, emails, (taklah banyak mane) but we manage not to lose contact. Mawarni is being her usual self. everyting is in order. even though her job is a 6 months contract, she seems to enjoy it. She's always very calm and acceptance towards things. Complaints but not too much. and of course, we can't stop talking. she will talk-talk-talk non-stop. Huhu! :) Love ya, Warnie. As for Sajidah, You pun tak banyak berubah lah... i thought she'll attack with some American twang, tapi she was being modest ke ape, somehow yeah... cam dulu :) hehe. i like! We took sewing class together right after SPM at chow Kit, kan Sajidah? lawaks sungguh.

Sajidah - masa dia beraye di Ohio.

Panjang and Suraiya joined Sajidah and Mawarni after about 10 mins or so. first time meeting them both at the same time (togheter lah). Before this, i only met panjang at KLCC and Suraiya in Brunei/Miri. Like i told Panjang in SMS, nampak sepadan :) they are also going to be engaged. Next Sunday, 28th. theme color, Lilac. unlike Haniff, Panjang refuse to wear baju melayu. By the way, mak masak Laksa Johor and I have my special hot-from-the-oven carrot cupcake yang sungguh yummie!!! I don't have panjang's and Suraiya's pic. so takdapatlah nak tunjuk... nanti kita mintak gambar from their engagement plak.

Sambung crite ari sabtu balik, right after Haniff's engagement, Zukry & I went to Tahirah's house at Bukit Rahman Puta, Sg Buloh. So taklah jauh sangat from TTDI umah Naim. cuma jalan Jam tak hengat. Zalina and Mawarni joined us in a while. so being us, of course, non-stop talking again. a year story, aduh macam2 lah. oh, Halim was also there. Tahirah's Teman & Mesra. Hehe. khabarnyer dah dapat cincin. semoga berbahagia ye. by the way girls, trip to Miri next year? visit lah i yang kesepian di sana. Huhu! :)
so, papehal pun, amek gambar. Mawarni, Zalina, Me & Tahirah

Went to Zalina's house yesterday with Sajidah & Mawarni as well. Arif was already on his way back. za ada amek gambar tapi it's not in my hand lah. Zalina is happy with her job as well. tak banyak cerita... she was rushing on Saturday because of P. Ramlee the musical.

Finally, last night; Kak Ijat decided to stop by. She also being her usual self, came in cute pink cotton baju kurung. banyak crite kan? but honestly KakIjat (if you're reading) i was very tired already last night. but hey, you are always all jumpy everytime we met so i couldn't help but join you being jumpy and all excited to share a one year story together :) KakIjat is helping her father with some projects. Art stuffs. Planning for her future is all there. tinggal nak buat je lg. KakIjat is also following Haniff and Panjang is going to be unavailable next year...

Kak Ijat - photo courtesy of Friendster. haha!

arini, nak pergi pos barang ke Miri. barang2 i bought from IKEA. Da!

The Family Pictures

Maktam and family. Paktam, Emmy, Ika & Fadhli. We are supposed to have two kind of pictures. One is very conservative, proper, very formal... and the other one is the fun one. the not-so-formal, weird pose, Lalala... so this is a fun pic. very rilex but still in raya mode :) Maktam choses Red for 2007. Pink, maroon...

Here's me and my family. Mak, Bapak, Abang, Mizan & Baby. we don't have a family theme for Raya. It's been so long since we last have a mathcy-matchy baju raya. Hehe. We all were divided into the ladies and gents. The ladies were wearing Thai Silk, and the gents chose yellowish color. Gambar ni conservative pose lah. Actually all pictures of us are alike. Baby was the one who posed like a celebrity, the others KAKU including moi :) i have nice smile, memadailah... HAHAHA! :P

Makngah's Family! KakLong, KakNgah, Epit and PakNgah. The ladies punye baju, the materials KakNgah beli all the way from Singapore. Jauhnye... Epit was the one who "melemang" for us all. Sampai tengah malam!

Daddy's little girls with Mummy. Shining kan our baju? Love Thai Silk! I have two. One is royal blue and 2007 = Yellow! Baby pakai baju kurung Kedah. just to show the Utara in her, now that she's studying in Changloon. Hehe. We were all in Estee Lauder's make up. Mum bought before Raya. ah, sungguh best meng'apply' make up. hihi. And the curls on baby's hair, thanks to KakLong.

OK! The girls with our parents. i love this picture. sungguh happy, sungguh senang... :)

I want to take pictures of my house. and post it here. nak tunjuk all the good things my mum dah wat. hehe. Kalau semangatlah, harap2 semangatlah jugak!

Aidilfitri Celebration @ Kuala Lipis, Pahang

I'm posting here the "suasana" of celebrating Aidilfitri in Kuala Lipis, Pahang.

Basically, the morning of raya the gents are the first to dressed up for Solat Sunat at the mosque. Complete with Songkok & Sampin. Aduh, everyone is just so dashing! :)

The girls will take turn to dressed up afterwards. Inai is already on our fingers, Baby & Ika curled their hair this year (KakLong & KakNgah need no help in that area. Hehe), while i was just there excited about all that. Haha! I tried to keep every raya a lil bit more exciting that the previous one.

After "Salam Raya", pose for the camera "click,click,click!". and then, head to Kuala Atok to Visit kubur our grandparents... Raya-raya to like 4 houses until maghrib and then, back to Lipis.

I bagi duit raya this year. That's new and sungguh tak terurus. I think it is all so kelam kabut. Unfair. Sometimes berbeza Uni, sekolah menengah, sekolah rendah, anak saudara, dua pupu, whatever - Lalala, rezeki masing2 lah ye :)

Alicia Keys - No One

Belos is the lyrics to Alicia's new single from her new album coming out in November.

Eveyone knows about Beyonce cancelled her show in KL, kan? i'm disappointed, alright. But whatever. she cancels because she was asked to cover up - of course, i understand to sing "Deja Vu" covered up - macam tak kena :P Hehe...

Better not come than throw crappy shows or being cynical about the cover-up thing during the show like Miss Carey did (according to mum, Maktam, KakLong). Alicia Keys did really GREAT show when she was here in 2004. thanks mum - front seat! with corset and tight pants. no problem whatsoever! U rock, Miss Keys. Couldn't wait for "As I AM".

"I just want you close
Where you can stay forever
You can be sure, That it will only get better

You and me together
Through the days and nights
I don't worry 'cuz
Everything's going to be alright
People keep talking
They can say what they like
But all i know is everything's going to be alright

No one, no one, no one
Can get in the way of what I'm feeling
No one, no one, no one
Can get in the way of what I feel for you, you, you
Can get in the way of what I feel for you

When the rain is pouring down
And my heart is hurting
You will always be around
This I know for certain

I know some people search the world
To find something like what we have
I know people will try try to divide something so real
So til the end of time"
