Working Hard Before Raya? - Not so!

I have work pending for submission tomorrow. (Yet again!) I don't know, Zukry thinks I can't say NO to assignments. Maybe I have this syndrom of wanting to please everyone especially seniors and bosses. It's very dangerous! The funny thing is all these assignments are in my KPIs. I should revise the KPI perhaps. See the burden compared to others. Blame it on something else, as usual.

People, look at these cute pictures! Maktam posted this two pictures of me on her facebook account. Ahhh, I am cute. Was, am, will always be! My blog, so I can go all the way with this "angkat bakul" thing. Hihihi :P Maktam, thanks for the effort of scanning all these. One of the best thing when I'm at your house is browsing to your ever-organized and clean albums. :) Love, love, love them!

CUTE kan??? :) Yesterday I had my hair trimmed into a six year old me again. Hehehe.. The best thing is that I was questioned "You pernah buat rebonding sebelum ni?"... and I get to answer "no, My hair is natural like this" ah, what a feeling! Hahahaha. Perasan lagik! But i have to say during facial, mak sakit!!! This time I went to a different place. Chinese beautician. Again, the korek2 time - mak datuk, giler sakit! But i have to clean the bumps and what not on my face ni... I wish to go facial again before the 11 Oct ceremony :)

I can't wait to go get my baju raya! This year, I have a two-toned (blue+peach)chiffon made into a modern baju kurung with a bit of twist and yet again, thai silk but this time, the checkered part as top, and the plain one as the sarong. Oh, the kain is courtersy of dearest Zukry. Terima kasih tidak terhingga ye :) Ah, taksabarnye nak parade the baju raya, playing dress up the night before and the morning of Raya!

But ah, I have two meetings (which of course, I'm the secretary) that I have to make sure "berlaku" before i go back for Raya holidays. Then I can "Beraya" oh so peacefully. I hope!

Current favorite song

Jason Mraz. I'm Yours and Lucky with Bubbly's Colbie Callait. I always have the tendency to visualize that Zukry was the one who actually sing the songs to/with me. Well, only visualize since the actual Zukry has no voice like Jason Mraz. Siapa marah, kena jual :)

I already have the album and love all the songs. But currently in love with these two hits. I mean, I'm Yours has already been into the air since a few months back and I still can't get enough of it. Even Zukry has this song in his collection (without me passing it to him... hhmmmm, bagus-bagus. Makin lama, makin faham lah tu. Hehehe...)

Oh how i wish i could play the guitar, strum and sing my heart out to these songs. Soothing, it makes me feel all loved. sigh.... :) Oh well, it's the weekend. It has been a very long week!

here's the lyrics to I'M YOURS.

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
and now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
Nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
We're just one big family
And It's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

Scooch closer dear
and i will nibble your ear

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
My breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what i be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
this is our fate, I'm yours

To IZZA, happy birthday dearest. Hope you enjoy your time with me at our first trip to Miri's new Secret Recipe. yes, Secret Recipe is here in Miri. YES! Orang Labuan/Bintulu, diharap bersabar dan jangan dengki ye. Hihihi... Oh not-so-great news today, Kak Ada decided to move out of the house after the contract ends this year. Izza suggest that we move out to a smaller house because it has been a hassle maintainig a huge house that is not ours. The tenant seems to charged us every little repair/work he's doing to his own house. Not fair ma!

But yeah, I don't want to move. I'm too settled here. My room is huge. I have a lot of stuffs! Piles of magazines, drawers and boxes of clothings, files, TV, lalala... it's going to be a tiring day - moving.

ah, don't think about it.

Tomorrow, off to hair salon. Trim my hair, scalp treatment, massage, stim, whatever. and a trip to facial. wajib to do both. oh, and find kek lapis masam manis for maktam. and a few smalls ones for balik kampung. It's 19th day of Ramadhan. Monday, must play raya songs. :)

Kejut untuk sahur. Selamat berpuasa. Nite :)

Hi! :)

I have no idea what to write as the title. Just want to let you all know that I am in KL and I am loving it. Once reach KLIA; then I realize, it has been only a month since my last trip back but somehow it feels so long...

Tanker meeting was super. In one meeting, i get to meet people from various OPUs and even companies. The only thing that i find a bit embarrassing is that my name card is not updated. There's no handphone number! I have new extension number! And the job title is definitely change as well. So when people are exchanging theirs, I was like "Em, thanks!" tu je! So poyos and yeah, memalukan diri sendiri... Reminder, ask clerk to renew.

The host has arranged a Majlis Berbuka Puasa at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, so I was so there! :) I had buka puasa at Ancasa Hotel the night before (the day I arrived, the day i fast 2 hours longer than usual. Hehehe...) And last night I buka puasa with Mak and Abang at Novotel Hotel: Chinese Muslim Cuisine, Qing Zhen Restaurant. Dumplings - love, love, love... Sushi, super love! Chocolate fountain, please no more inches added at my hips or else takmuat baju raya!!! Must eat Tom Yam Kung tonight at Secret Recipe's with Sajidah and Mawarni & that apple juice with asam boi - ape nama dia??? can't recall!

Off doing some pending jobs due last night! And then, off to Jalan TAR to shop for.... em, stuffs :P

Trip to Labuan?

Probably in Nov. Nak tau lebih lanjut? Zukry ada post 3 videos of Destinasi Budget at his blog. Go see! :)

Macam Miri je, tapi ada Zukry. So, that is major. Kena start browsing for more.

Ramadhan, so far so good II

So far, Alhamdulillah. The weather here is surprisingly very cooling. Rain almost every night until early morning, so the day seems not as hot as the usual. Izza and I went to Pasar Ramadhan at Saberkas yesterday. We were soking wet by the time we got home and as expected, nafsu sungguh melampaui kemampuan untuk memakan makanan yang dibeli.

Today for buka puasa, I cooked. I am not a good cook, never been pun. Good Luck, Zukry. He loves cooking! Ayam masak ntah hape2. Hehehe... tapi sedap. According to Izza lah :)

Have I mentioned before, selawat tarawih in Miri is not the same as in KL. It's not wrong, it's just different. Buka puasa has always been very quiet. Again, Izza and me would plan whether to cook or just buy food and enjoy them together. Nasib baik ada Izza, kalau tak KESEORANGAN lah haku!

Anyway, tomorrow I'm off to KL! Yipppeee! Apparently, TYT's birthday has changed to Ocotber! WHAT???! so Friday is no longer holiday! I have to apply for leave on Friday. If not, rugilah! Actually if i don't have meeting on Wednesday and thursday, I already bought myself a ticket for this long weekend. Many of us dah beli tiket pun, pakat mintak cutilah semua orang -

So, can't wait. I have to pack! :) Again, hope all is well. I miss people. (As usual. People who never has to be apart with families, won't get this feeling. trust me.)

Time (tick, tock, tick) Vs. Money ($$$)

I'd say that I'm an independent person. I do things myself. Of course, I would not reject any help from people but I do pretty OK doing my own things too. Why am I yaking about this? :)

I was just thinking while driving pass Pasar Ramadhan at Lutong this evening. Around 5.30pm. I have no guilt whatsoever going back earlier than my senior or even my boss today. Because it's Ramadhan. People are much more considered. It should be this way more often! :) Anyway, what i was thinking?

I was thinking, Nak berenti ke taknak? Nak park kereta, jenjalan at the mini PARAM or just drive away and stop at the gerai sebelah Masjid Lutong aje? So, i decided - let's not loose time parking, berasak2 - instead just settle with whatever makcik gerai sebelah masjid offer. What do i get? Kueh2 yang kureng ke"sedap"an nya...

Still that was not the point writing. Actually I want to point out about Nak loose time, or loose money. OK, more appropriate example. Taking the bus pengantara (to the LRT) or naik teksi?

Dulu2, masa universiti (cuti kat KL) - nak gi meet girlfriends/dating, if there's no kelisa/wira/perdana at home, sometimes opt for public transportation. So, to ride the LRT, i have to go to the LRT station. To go to the nearest LRT station, I have to either take the bus or the taxi. OK, so the question here is "Nak naik bus, murah (only RM1 to Jelatek/Datuk Keramat) but I have to wait for a gazillion hours. But naik taxi, for RM5 every 2/3 minutes, there's 1 taxi passing by? So nak loose the time waiting, or loose the RM4. Mane yang lebih precious???"

So itulah dia sebenarnya... I just want to highlight, I always have this in my mind. mumbling about whether I should waste money over time... So ape kena mengena dengan cerita beli kueh kat Makcik gerai sebelah masjid - I have lost its connection! Hahaha!

This thing keeps on playing especially during my online shopping spree. Nak beli sekarang and dapat in 2 days but pay extra for the delivery charges or wait next month, balik KL and baru beli? So u can pretty much guess which one i chose kan? hehehehe...

So, salam everyone. Hope all is well. Miss everyone at home and couldn't wait for next weekend! Weeehooo!!!
