Jangan biasakan sangat "weekend" bersama

Yeah, sekarang ni; akak dah selalu sangat dapat peluang jumpa Zukry. Almost every weekend; mesti dapat that chance (On my ipod right now "Take a chance...." - Abba, Hehehe...)

Last week, Zukry was in Miri; transit before off to Bintulu for his second ACD. The plan was to study, mengulangkaji teori2 yang sepatutnya tahu sebagai seorang Chemist. However, we ended up planning for our second honeymoon; abroad! Since the first one was a bit too short and well; domestic. Huhu...

This week, i was supposed to have the weekend in KL because of the opportunity haveing a meeting on a Thursday and Friday. Tapi apakan daya, abis semua tiket. AirAsia tinggal tiket yang RM700 je, gile mahal. So there goes my plan to stay. So immediately thinking of diverting to Labuan instead. Bought the ticket and tomorrow morning, off to meet dearest Zukry. (Whom BTW wasn't very keen on his surprise plan. I guess his plans with his PML friends were ruin kot kalo I datang... Kecik hati jugaklah being second tiba2. But whatever-lah, merajuk jelah. ape lagi)

Next week, balik KL together (not in the same flight) To attend a BFF wedding, Huda & Hafiz in Sg Ramal, Kajang.

And then, the next weekend, off to KOTA KINABALU. bercuti jugak.

and then, the next weekend, in Miri together lagi...

Come January - bila takde peluang ni lagi - menangis sorang2 kat Miri....

Argh!

Teeny is back!

I'm alive and heavier by seconds :)

Hi everyone, it has been quite a while. I was up and about these days. I won't say that work has consumed me; I was just invisible in the WWW. I have time to facebook, read blogs, online shopping, but I was just not in the mood of writing.

Anyhoo... I'm in Miri, just waiting the laundry to be done. Visu is inviting me for dinner tonight, i had said NO to her yesterday, so I don't want to disappoint her again today. If not tonight, it'll be next week because tomorrow my husband is coming! :) Although, i should be eating dinner nowadays. Kilos / pounds are just adding up, fatty-fatty bom bom!!!

Oh, one thing that is exciting is planning on a second honeymoon. Huhu. I want to see how that will go this weekend. But Zukry said he needs to study for his ACD - howlah! hehehe...

Going back for even the weekend is just exciting

I'm going back at 6.20 AM today. I was supposed to be enjoying myself at Beyonce's concert this Sunday but it turned out that the concert was postponed or was it cancelled? Em, not sure already but I am still going back tomorrow... Ticket bought for RM240 return MAS/AirAsia - so why waste? :)

Apparently the plan was to go to Lembaga Tabung Haji to open an account. Yeah, Hartini hasn't register - agak melampau but I'm doing it tomorrow insyaAllah. Mak is picking me up at KL Sentral so; yay! I think shopping is going to wait as i am not "rich" anymore and is hould be spending a little less than before now... asyik berbelanja aje - ape cite? Ntah...

Oh, and i won't get to meet my dearest husband this week. He was not keen on joining the concert despite pujukan demi pujukan; so i aje yang balik. He'll be in Labuan doing nothing? No plan at the moment, but he just to Futsal again after so long just now. i guess no PSP means Futsal lah kot, if not 24/7 dengan PSP aje. (BTW< i have the PSP with me now. Playing PATAPON non-stop! fun-fun-fun!!!

My friends in Miri (you know who you are) are going to have a fun and exciting weekend too... Wishing them the best weekend EVER too! i know i may able to top theirs but at least i'll be in KL...

BTW, wiht the FY ending this March i have been forced to think about leaving Miri. and with the new policy and what not; i really got to make a decision fast and do something about it. statt thinking and doing things baby!!! don't wait for anyone or anything... it won't happen that way, you know that... susah lah adulthood... sape cakap best????

What is up, Teeny?

Dearest Reader,
Thank you so much for still clicking to the blog, I’m sure to find out what Teeny is up to. But, to even my dismay there was no update since FOREVER... well, that’s alright. I’ll try to fill in the gap of about a month leaving the space at status quo.
There was the Shawal. The first Shawal as a wife, going back to both Lipis and Batu Pahat was fun. I didn’t have to really introduced Zukry as most of the people I visited were already at the wedding last June. The best part was actually the night I reached KL, where we stopped at Jalan TAR to find a matching Kurung as apparently the glamorous chiffon modern kurung I tailor made was not going to be ready by Saturday (a day before raya) A first trip for all of us (Baby, Zukry and me) and yes, it was packed!!!
But it turned out; my dress was ready as promised; therefore the RM80 Kurung turned into my 4th Raya dress. I get to parade the new dress matching with my husband baju melayu. The materials were a gift from each other during our engagement exactly a year ago on 11th October 09!
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy. I’ll keep on updating soon...


Berpuasa at Bagan Serai. Everyday Pasar Ramadhan. And so cheap too!!!


Matching-matching with Mizan before MakTam's doa selamat kenduri and buka puasa


Giler-giler remaja tua


Stuck in the lift. Trying our best to not panic, took pictures!


Pterigyum Removal at Ampang Putri Specialist Centre. Seram sejuk, but all went well.


Suami bersiap utk berhari raya.

Third Ramadhan in Miri, Sarawak...

Third ramadhan is different in Miri

One... is because I'm now residing at a different house. With only Izza on weekdays and with Zukry every other weekends. Which is fine insyaAllah... The distance is somewhat bugging us at the moment. We have been in our Managers radar for coming in about 15 mins late every other day! Yikes...

Two... is because I'm now with a reponsible of a wife. Not sure if I have been delivering that well enough. but judging to the ever increasing kilos, I'm happier somehow... Haha!

6 days fasting, I'm just missing home more and more. Kuala Lumpur, panggillah daku pulang! :) BTW, Izza and I opened our own Surau at our little house last 2 days for terawih. We have to go to Lutong, which is the whole way to the office; to get to the nearest Masjid. So instead of driving back, Izza "imam"kan solat terawih. I bloghopped and searched for the bacaan selawat after every 2 rakaat to become the not-pro Bilal. Hihihi... Izza is fantastic, she recited all kind of surah! I'm just amazed and felt so little as a "makmum"....

Tomorrow is Friday, yay! That means another day to pass before I get to meet dearest husband again. This time, we are meeting at KLIA! But we will not be around KL, straight to Penang and then, heading to Perak; to his mum's. Yeap, puasa at Bagan Serai; so that raya will be on my side KL-Lipis-Bt Pahat. Smart tak? ;)

Haze in Miri

The haze is getting worse here in Miri. Particularly at my house area in Desa Senadin Phase 5. Apparently, according to Kak Ada there were some kawasan lalang/terbiar terbakar. The smoke is really just intolerable.

I had to wear mask to open my house gate! That is like a few meters away from the door. Sigh... I think good move that the HSE dept is providing mask (not that i could not afford one, i bought my own for H1N1 before at Guardian...)

If terbakar sendiri, i tak kesah sangat. Tapi kalau bakar sendiri, sakit hati betul... tak paham2 ke?!

TeenyrkuZ : Together and Apart

I miss my flight. My flight to Labuan on Friday evening. Zukry was really pissed off, I guess he was even more devastated than I was. I cried the whole night thinking how this procrastination somehow just grew bigger without me realizing it.

I knew i had a meeting that evening. A meeting that I was the focal person, the secretary, the presenter, the Everything to make it work but I never pack the night before... Even with that someone religiously reminding, I never actually pack anything.



So I missed my flight. My 1910 flight.




Woke up really early yesterday, went off to the airport. I think I reached the airport at 6 AM! Everyone I know is still asleep, i think! Bought a ticket at the counter, immediately checked in, bought a cup of Starbucks coffee for Izza (THANK YOU!) who is my airport driver EVERYTIME and flew off to meet dearest husband.

As expected, Zukry was really devastated about me leaving a day after. I mean, yeah - (I) wasted one night in Miri alone when I could have been there with him... I understand. I get a lot of nasihat, motivational talk from him. He’s just being him. All organized.
Weekend was always great with Zukry. A gazillion times of merajuk –yang-dipujuk... Well, the long-distance-relationships doesn’t really help in “pujuk-memujuk”; might as well lah. But Labuan is still with the water problem. It’s challenging to become a wife there. So, most of the time I acted almost like the girlfriend, not the wife. Lepak aje memanjang while the host masaklah, kemaslah, itulah, inilah... :P But he had my Mee Kungfu yang yummy lagi rangup... Cukuplah kan.

Work has been really consuming. I think I have been working my a*s off since I came back from the long holiday (wedding leave) Like it’s never ending, I finished one and I have 20 more waiting! Crazy... Zukry was really frustrated with the fact that my duty phone keeps on ringing even when I’m there. But work is work. I can still deal with it right now, I don’t know if I will ever explode!
I’m going to mark my calendar this week.
Monday : Work in Miri; Zukry in KL
Tuesday : Work in Miri; Zukry in KL
Wednesday : Work @Kidurong Club, Bintulu; Zukry at Labuan
Thursday : Work in Miri; Zukry at Labuan
Friday : Work in Miri; but most importantly, GET TO PICK ZUKRY at the airport!

Yap, we are meeting again next weekend!!!
Alangkah indah di waktu malam, burung bersiul ... lalalala (from Ali Baba Bujang Lapuk) I would have been wearing COACH handbag from all the money I spend for MASWings tickets!!!

I have been hogging him with questions “sampai bila...?, what is our next plan? Should I be in Labuan? Should you move to Miri? Do you want to continue with your PhD? Shoud I continue my study, just because...?” and there are really, no straight answer to that.

For me to be asking my boss, “Hey boss, you think you can let me go because I need to be with my family” will invite to answer like “Tu pasal ada this new policies... rugilah...”

I guess I’m too chickened out to go and actually seize any opportunity! WHY???!

ACD

I'm missing people lesser nowadays. It worries me, somehow... I don't want to. Whether I was too occupied with everything that has been happening, or the fact that I get to see Zukry every week... I don't want to miss others any less. Maybe I should call other people / start emailing for no reason.

This week was supposed to be about attending Accelerated Capability Development (ACD) Assessment. It was supposed to be the IT of the week. I wasn't really paying attention to it until this week... My session was even cancelled because of my negligence, lucky that I sources to undo the cancellation thing. Phhewww! Even with knowing and fully aware of going to be ACDized, we had a mini house warming party on Saturday! Hihi... Zukry was here, brought kilos of prawns and squids - so Izza made Mee Goreng and our guests were all girls... ;) Kesian Zukry, takde kawan.

My assessment was not due until today morning. But yesterday, I was informed the assessors wanted me to slot in for their free session in the morning. I was shocked and surprised, but so 50-50 about going/not going. I can talk to them, negotiate about it's not fair to just call me up like that... but eventually, I agree with people who mentioned will there be much different today/tomorrow. So yay, I am just so done and deal with it now... I thought i did better than my last assessment, so atleast that's something.

I'm off to Labuan tomorrow to celebrate. Haha! Pathetic kan? macam takde cerita lain. if not work, zukry, lalala - boring.

Oh I'm GYM-ing now. Lunch hour. Wish that i could sustain the energy and motivation, yeah...

Ayam-ayam yang telah di"ayam"kan

Whenever Zukry told me that he was going for futsal game or training, I was always in not a good modd thinking that he would leave me and not calling after or before the game (which is actually the usual thing)... So i was thinking, he must be the star. He loves the game so much that i believe that he is somehow among the best player.

But Zukry dalam Team Ayam B last weekend. Apahal??? Hehehe... rupa-rupanya his passion tak sampai dalam permainan. Tapi dia tetap hebat beraksi, ada wife kan luar court kot.

Team Ayam B tak kemana pun. Team Ayam A pun setakat tempat ketiga. So mereka inilah ayam-ayam yang telah di"ayam"kan ;)

Ayams, jangan marah. i know you played your best! I was there.

Awesome Weekend

My weekend started off perfectly. A wake up beside him, a breakfast at the best nasi lemak, that is at AU2, Taman Keramat (Sebelah AEON Jusco) drove off to KLCC for Black and White theme family gathering, drive to Anis wedding at Rawang - drive to KL Tower - busy, busy, busy!


The not-so-new-pengantin yang giler serabai with the newly-weds. Congratulations ANIS! Za is next? Or Tahirah? Or MAWARNI? No, no... must be Huda... :)

My first visit to KL Tower. How was it? It was great! I didn't know that KL Tower has a lot of other activities than the view and the thrill of eating up on a tower. We were the second last people. Driving back from Rawang, change and drive back out; yeah... we weren't that hungry but I was just thrilled to see the faces again. Faces whom i have missed for about a month.


Casually sedondon. But then again, no hype since everyone is in Black and White. the reason behind the theme (just realized!) : bendera PAHANG! Ni sumer orang Pahang belaka!

Happy 1 month, Zukry!!! :D

I'm in Miri & he just landed in Labuan.

I hope friends and families (especially) understand what we are going through at the moment. Like yesterday and today, i feel terrible for having to be with my family in like minutes and if in hours - shared with others. Zukry and I have only these few days to meet, and at the same time - i would want to share with EVERYONE. I'm greedy at this point of time, but to love and be loved; i think greedy is necessary.

So basically, whatever it is; we'll try to arrange as much of meetings as possible. It's fun & somewhat calming to be with Zukry nowadays... :) Like facebook, I LIKE THIS!

Books

i have the weekend to myself this time. A first after a month with my husband, Zukry (yes, my husband!). Hehe. i got really sad when i had nothing to do, so instead of doing nothing; i keep myself busy.

Just got out from POPULAR, a bigger, newer, better bookstore now that Plaza Bintang has expanded. I bought RM250 worth of book!!! One of it, i wonder if its too soon to read... ;P KakLaila, you haven't answer my SMS.

Another Greetings!

It’s surreal. I’m just still adjusting with the fact of becoming a wife. This long distance relationship easily allows us to forget that we are married. Well, not exactly FORGeT; but overlook/ignore/miss.

I’m married. I’m actually married! It is official, no denying about it. Like I’ve mentioned to Maktam; the whole kenduri and all were like another family bonding like we usually have at our house... and that I happened to be the highlight of the whole thing. Surreal but true, I’m still overwhelmed with joy.

I’m currently in Miri. I’m just enjoying every bit of things that I’ve missed for about 3 weeks. Of course, work is a never ending thing; and that I have to continue whatever I’ve left before... But all in all, office is just the same as before. The good ones, remains good and even better and the bad ones; not going to change? I don’t know... Not yet at the moment. Hehehe...

My laptop can no longer detect WiFi. The hardware is no longer working, at least that was according to that dude who sold me this laptop at HP centre beside Low Yatt Plaza. He gave me two options (1) to send it to their technical service – which may take a lot of time and money (2) to buy a USB thingy at Low Yatt – which I haven’t check out. Next week, maybe... So, even though my housemate is already equipped with a broadband, I can’t simply enjoy sharing the device with laptop Deng-Dong like this. Sigh...

Have I forgot to mentioned that we (as in my husband and I – oh yes, my husband!) both are the owner of Nokia E71 in hopes to get to do video calls/MMS/facebook besides the usual phone calls and SMS each other for effectively. Hehehe. It was a belated birthday gift for him and a gift to me after a long period of not buying my own phone. My last one was in year 4 or was it, 3 in UTM; the rest were all subsidized. Thanks to Bapak.

Oh, in this Bliss... I’m also affected by the loss of the KING OF POP, MiCHAEL JackSON. I was 13 when I went to his Kuala Lumpur concert with Mak. Yes, Mak went to Michael Jackson concert with me!!! :) I went crazy about him, had a scrapbook about him – newspaper cuttings and magazines which was later; ate by anai2. Sabojele... Rest in peace dear Michael. You are in a lot of controversy still THE KING & a LEGEND. Gone too Soon...

Greetings from Zukry's wife

hi all. I'm so sorry for having to keep this page idle for about a month now. You have no idea how much things i wanted to share but never got to have the time to sit down and properly write everything down. Now that I'm happily turned into Zukry's other half, still very busy adjusting to becoming a wife. I have a lot of stories; i just don't know where to start. Pre, wedding, post, honeymoon, wife, everything! I guess, i'll start by Thanking all who has made my wedding the most exciting thing in my life. I was overjoyed that tired means fun during the event...

Saturday, May 30, 2009

I'm away - Sorry

I'll be updating from time to time, now that i'm connected to the world again. sabar ye.

Fun weekend

I have not been writing nor blogging for many-many days now! I have two more pending things - work related which is driving me crazy! Yet, i'm lepaking berfoya-foya with my family, lipat-lipat kad kahwin (yes, dah siap!) and today... I have to pack my bags and be gone! back to Miri where the oil fown under there is my reJeki.

and tonight, it's official! My alamat will no longer be Lutong Baru, something else. From a double storey semi-D to a single storey terrace house. My things are all there. This is quite exciting! Going back to a new start! :)

Nadia, thanks for yesteday. absolute greatness! jangan lupa photog thing.

Papehal, nak keluar check in at KL sentral as everybody is busy - takleh hantar gi KLIA. Sabo jele... Zukry, koling2. Dah sampai Labuan blum. dia ada bachelor party at Kota Kinabalu this long weekend. agak melampau kan, but whatever...

Bagan Serai, Here I Come!



* The kebaya is now on-going a beading process. A little wedding-y do :) Glam it up. Can't wait. Next week, must go for fitting!

hari ini hari sabtu.

I'm moving out from this huge house to a much smaller one with Izza. I'm 100% excited about this actually. I was waiting for a big change this 2009. Last year was about me performing in a different section, this year as part of the wedding plan; i'm moving to a new house... ;)

Today, i woke up to a shot of Rajin-ness! I sweeped, mopped, scrubbed carpets, moving chairs, sofas, tables, all by myself and i'm very proud of that. That really was a rare sight! Mak must be proud too. Haha! Now I'm segregating all things that are mine in the kitchen. I gave up with my room already last week but must start with it tomorrow.

I have lots of baju i want to give aways, but i don't know to who. Siapa yang teringin dress up like me, sila contact. I bagi for free. No kidding. Of course, mana yang i taknak aje...

Today - Back to Miri...

Hey All,

There are photos for yesterday’s activities, but haven’t been uploaded into the pc yet. But here are some pictures from my first trip to Gua Niah 2 years ago with my family…


That's me behind my dad. Without my shoes on. I was wearing my PUMA sneakers, but the socks were too low and my feet did not survive kemelecetan... Terpaksa buka kasut (only on the way back)


Mizan yang menggayakan moto "Usaha Tangga Kejayaan". Look at his feet, those are Bally shoes coming all the way from Europe tau! And it survived Gua Niah, he is still wearing them now. Tahan!


Ladies that survived the trip. Mak, Baby and Me before the boat trip back to the head quarters. Phewww! Look at our jeans. Please don't wear jeans for Gua Niah trip!


And lastly, my parents. 30 years anniversary in 2009!

What kind of Employee are you?

He sent me this before he left for football:

Capricorn Employee Profile
1. A Capricorn employee with too much to do is a happy worker. They need plenty of projects and responsibility. There is no sadder sight than a Capricorn worker without a sense of responsibility. They need to be needed.
2. They are covertly ambitious - usually not flashy or obvious about it-but you will usually know that they are serious and determined about advancing themselves. They are completely scrupulous, so much so that they can be self-disparaging. But they are no pushovers. They can wear down even the toughest customers.
3. Their persistence is incredible. Once they set their sights on a goal, they work away at it until the bitter end-whether the goal be that hard sell or the new hardware release.
4. Capricorns don't work for free, however. They expect to be paid handsomely and be given more and more responsibility. They need to come out ahead of the pack in the end, and they see the work environment as their primary vehicle.
5. They won't go in for the typical office gossip and politics, though. They want to get down to business at work and see it as no place for fooling around. With a strong sense of duty and respect towards their superiors, it is rare they will join in on boss-bashing or knocking the system. They can get frustrated, however, with blue sky management schemes that lack common sense, and they will interject their dry sense of humor in the most critical ways.
6. If they want change, they will be unyielding. If all their effort leads to naught the result will be deep moods of darkness and depression with a sense of hopelessness.

So… dear company; Keep your Capricorn employee happy by paying them fairly and giving them plenty of hard work. Arrange for a path of advancement within your organization for them. If you don't, you might find them looking for other opportunities.

Mekaseh…

Where was I? Part II

I am currently in KL.

After a tiring but very beneficial trip to Kerteh, on Sunday - Tuesday, I was at Trader's Hotel KL. Had monthly meeting with our marketing peeps at the ever tall KLCC and yesterday, had designed my dress for Majlis Bertandang at my favourite (but a whee bit expensive) tailor... Today was again a very busy day for me. Non-stop driving, berjalan, everywhere!

Was at Puchong for finalization of wedding card design. Pretty happy to see it all happended in front of my eyes. But Mak made comments on the "mempersilakan" sentences and some amendments on the map still, i had to email him again and hope to say; "PRINT" by Wednesday! Jalan TAR in the evening to find that perfect box for chocolates. Guests, we'll give you a sweet surprise.

My bertandang dress was supposed to be ready for fitting tomorrow before extreme beading follows. And the cake lady appointment with Makteh and Maktam, early morning too!

Yosh, I'm just everywhere these few days. I should post more photos but i don't know why i didn't take any. Must take photos on events tomorrow! Remind me. hehehe... 63 days TO GO, dear TEENY!

And tonight, Zukry is at some Labuan padang, main bola. Sigh......

Where was I?

Tennis lost two games both at 6-0, 6-2. I know it looked pathetic but my motivation was low and my grip of the racquet was extremely bad plus my self confidence went down the hill when I knew who I was playing against. But before the ladies who played against me want to smug about winning, I think I played better than you girls... Sorry! ;) Hah, gile kejam lagi angkat bakul! I am not going to play tomorrow, I've decided that I won't have enough time to catch my flight should i played against PRIMAX. So, this morning game ended the SKO Games for me as that is the only sport I can contributed. In this case; better one, than nothing. KakLaila and Iman showed up after the game, thank God. So, both didn't get to see me "disayurkan" oleh Julian. Hehehe... Since the game ended earlier than expected, I went to pick up Haniff and Naim at the airport. Had breakfast at Hole No. 9 with all of them and later lend the car to the couples as they were heading to Brunei.

Tomorrow, I'm heading to Kerteh. My flight will be around 11 and i'll be arriving in KLIA at about 1300 hours. I have 3-4 hours time to fill, and definitely will be searching for Breaking the Dawn tomorrow. I finished Eclipse last week (Finally!) I've read some of the part of Breaking the Dawn because I wanted to know if Bella is ever going to become a vampire like she has always wanted. So i spoiled the end myself there – nevermind. I can't wait for New Moon the Movie. More than Harry Potter #7, I think! I'm such a traitor and can't get enough of Edward Cullen. You're my life...

I'll be in KL next week after the Kerteh learning trip. So people, let's meet up. When I say people, mostly referring to people that would help me with the wedding preparation. Cards, cakes, flower girl dresses – Tinn tinn; please reply my email!, Peggy the tailor, Yati the wedding planner, Bapak, Mak, Baby, KakLong, MakTam, MakTeh.. lalalala....

Shady, you made my day too...

I just got to post this. Like Shady said, The smallest gesture can be the sweetest thing!

"Teeny gave me an email a week ago and I felt so happy to hear from her. The smallest gesture can be the sweetest thing! She's getting married to Zukry, and I really laughed out loud when she mentioned 'i'll tell u my ding dong jokes' (can so imagine her saying that). You made my day baybeh :)"

My game, Tennis

Visu mentioned this today. "It's OK if you don't want to encourage, just don't discourage" She said this of course, regarding to whatever drama that was going on in our office. This was obviously in regards to do something good, not like she wanted to menipu/start merokok/things like that... It was a truly genuine good initiative. That's all.

Anyway, SKO Games started this week. Mach 5 – Netball has already over and we won the gold medal. This year, I ter'left' behind because of my 1 week-leave. I didn't get to see the opening. I heard it was quite something though... Never mind that, I'm still playing tennis this year! Yeah! When you like it, you don't make up reasons not to go. Even though, no one close to me actually played the game; I still went for the training and up for our games next week!

I was surrounded by wannabes and pro players, men mostly. You will hear Teeny with her "Yay", "Whee" every time she made her in ball! I hope the men don't mind though. Tergedik2 kat court. Haha! My stroke was alright, the serve still very soft but what the hell; yang penting main! ;)

Cerita Hantaran

No, not the duit hantaran… the gifts. Well, not the gift; the accessories to decorate the gift!

Last year, after Zukry’s family came for ‘merisik’; I started to really get on with having a wedding in a year or so. Of course, during these period until even now; I was obsessed with bridal magazines be it local like Pesona Pengantin, (Nona-Perempuan-Wanita – these I usually bought cheaper at Pasar Malam Miri) or foreign ones like Modern Bride.

I was thinking that bunga dip and bunga stokin is the only way to go for bunga hantaran or bunga pahar. I can’t think of any other options would make the perfect (in my case then, engagement) bunga hantaran. Not until KakLong bought a few stalks of black and white flowers from Thailand. Not until I went to SSF Jalan TAR and see a zillion of other flower that was neither made of dip nor stokin. And I thought, without those two, I prepared a grand hantaran for Zukry still. :) See KakLong (at shafrinashaaban.blogspot.com) entry on her effort to make them. BTW KakLong, you can brag about it in your blog. Afterall, you made them! ;) Thanks for the one extra bunga. It was use for MakTeh’s Secret Recipe’s cake (last entry!)

Now, for my hantaran kahwin; I have zilch interest in bunga dip and bunga pahar. Well, not zilch; but not as much as before. Hehehe… Mind you, I actually bought a CD from Kahwin.net for four flowers made of dip and stokin. That was when, “I-must-make-these-flowers” moment hit. Girlfriends please let me know, if you want to borrow it for your wedding. I’d be happy to lend it (Pinjam je tau! ;))

This time for hantaran, we are going to still use artificial flowers. But the flowers are not from Thailand; from SSF, Jalan TAR. It’s going to be girly-girly even though the trays are for Zukry. Sorry, dear. But people say; we give what we like most kan? Hehehe… KakLong, everything ada kat bilik bawah eh. If you have no time to pick them up; I will be back in 2 weeks time (insyaAllah) A friend of mine did offer to made the hantaran out of fresh flowers, but I don’t know – I thought nobody is going to use the flowers up, why waste such good money. Saya bukan pengantin kaya. Haha! :)

Oh, we are going to re-use all bases from engagement last Oct. We (KakLong and me) simply ask Zukry to bring back all bases (the one that was made from polystyrene) as he claimed that they were not use. I realized 1 set of flower form hantaran was used inside his bros car ;) Berguna jugak rupanya…

With good ribbons, the simplest alas dulang (which I made myself with Huda the night before the engagement!), a lot of ideas and creativity, soft and lentuk tangan yang ikhlas; memang cantiklah the decorations of my hantaran… Best! Can’t wait to see the hasil for kahwin nanti pulak ;)

Just a little reminder to all fashionista

Hi. I know it's a craze over tight nowadays. But ladies, please be mindful. I saw a girl in KLCC (while shopping for Zukry's watch last week) who thought her tights was opaque but it was NOT. It was purple and she dressed it up with a not-long-enough tshirt/blouse/whatever; not noticing that she actually showed a little not-appropriate-place of hers to the public. Sebagai seorang perempuan, agak malu melihat perkara sedemikian. Make sure your tights are really opaque. Ask your sister, friends, family... or wear long tshirt/blouse/whatever, as in long lah. Don't try to be clever/funny/fashion victim by just following the trend.

And I have to say, it's a definite NO-NO to those who covers their head. I mean, OK; i too wear Jeans. Tight or not, jeans is actually made of denim; so the effect isn't quite like tights. Be it lycra, glossy, shining, 80's type, colourful, see thru whatever... I find it really, just not suitable. Just my innocent thought. Hehehe...

I remember some of my friends wear the arm stokings. That was supposed to make sure, whenever their sleeve were accidently pulled up, stuck on something, terangkatlah kesimpulannya; the stokings would still covers their hands. I just thought that the stokings was not the answer to "i-can-wear-short-sleeve" tshirt. Kalau angkat tangan, nampak ketiak babe! :) wahaha... So, no point.

You may want to be fashion forward, but just be careful of what you choose... :)

The wedding preparation...

Suraya. One of the identified Flower Girls for reception. My mum was trying the flower thingy she bought during her recent trip to Indonesia. I settled for a total of 6 girls. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings (especially the mums) but I don't want to be broke before my marriage starts too :)


Checking out flowers for Zukry's hantaran. Can you see me in all those beautiful flowers? It's hard to shop here (even with Kaklong), but given the limited time and not-so-helpful-but supportive-fiance presence; we made it in less than 2 hours! :)


The chosen lace for Majlis Bertandang. Nice kan? Reason behind the color, hiding the unnecessary things. Haha! But most definitely because it's a rich color and NOT boring; plus we LOVE it!




That's a blurry picture of the ever sweet (maybe because of the darah manis) bride-to-be... I love doing this. Preparing for my wedding with Zukry. Miss him so badly already.

Where am I?

Chandler :    Who walks in a room and asks to see a person's hand?
Phoebe    :    Well, a palm reader, a manicurist, a hand doctor.....
Joey      :    Glove Salesman...
Phoebe    :    Good one!

You can bet you a** I'm in Miri again. Sigh...

Due Comments to Comments Made

Apis, asyik takdapat nak upload the video. Believe me; I've tried so many times... I ni tak terer computer sangat, I'm sure I miss something... Hehe. Baby, get the video to Apis. But since we were not the champion; you best tengok the champion punya moves! Hehehe...

Whitelighter, Selamat mempersiapkan diri jugak ;) jemput datang majlis I di KL.

Hey there Shady Shades, I emailed but no reply yet so far. I hope you get it though, I sent to your yahoo account. If you never receive any; let me know. I have to update my address book then. Anyway, yes; please mark your calendar. Zukry and I are getting married. Whee! :) hehehe... 13 June is the reception insyaAllah. Pass this news around to MRSM peeps kay. Cards will be sent out soon. Baru nak tempah next week :0!

Wahai Naim, Di manakah Atiqah Songket? We need more for other ceremony jugak kot. Ntahlah, taksure. Tapi yang penting; nikah punya InsyaAllah dah settle. 1 down, and many more to go...

Wani, Selamat dating ke blog Harteeny in 2009! Hehehe... kaya jugak dapat beli broadband sekarang eh? I sendiri taksempat lagi nak membeli wireless. Later when I move to a new house lah insyaAllah... How you've been? Minggu depan, you'll be in Melaka je eh? Can jumpa2 meh? I'll be in KL until 15.

The Greatest Ship of All

Friend-Ship :)

I was talking with Visu about it today. Visu and I didn't share the weekend together but we went to watch The Pink Panther II on Friday night, had a plate of lasagne and the best coffee afterwards at Coffee Bean. Anyway, while we were on this topic today (over Chapati, yum!), I was reminded of failed friendship I have encountered my 26 years living. Of course, when it has failed; it was just a bad thing/feeling/stressful/simply negative vibe all over but the real question was WHY it has failed in the first place?

Really, I couldn't remember the exact reason. I remember two (2) different failures which I am not going to state with who. But really, the reason was really vague or it was simply stupid/silly... I don't want to regret it, but I am pretty sure, if I was a little bit wiser + a little less pride/egoistic + simply have this I-don't-care attitude; these two very good friends will still be contacting me until now... When I think about it, I was then a very proud and sensitive person at the same time. I would be stressing about it non-stop, crying without a reason and still be hard-headed; just didn't want to deal with the person or the distance already created. Weird but so true!

So, the very friends I have now; please know that you're treasured. Really, no kidding. If I was still in MRSM now, I'd be writing this down in my journal and nobody gets to read it. But with this blogging world technology brought us, I'm confessing here that I treasured all of my friends especially the closest ones (you know who you are :P)

I can't wait to go back to KL this Saturday. My flight would be really early in the morning, so I get to start my day in KL really early. ETA at about 8.40 AM... Tak sabarnya! BTW, my cousin; Nadia is performing at The Apartment, KLCC this Saturday night with her group Luscious. Anyone interested to go, please let me know because I want to go too... Zukry?

Oh, the birthday present I got from Zukry. The digital camera... It was the PENTAX Optio M60 like the pictures I GOOGLE-d below. I have no photography skill like everyone is acquiring nowadays, so really; my pictures were same-old2. Hehehe... Despite the little merajuk2 I am having now, (it started 30 minutes ago when he already bought his ticket to go back to KL this July, while I was bragging about; I-have-a-meeting-in-Singapore-that-time-so-I-don't-have-to-buy-one); he is just the GREATEST :) Wait for me at Arrival Hall, KLIA ah this Saturday?

Today is the last day of February

Time passed really fast. It's already the end of February! and I thought i just celebrated my birthday... :) Anyway, i'm now no longer in a dark room with a non-functional light. The house owner came by today and fixed it. Yay! I was with KakLaila and her children today at the park of KRP. Berfoya2 with my yummy brownies and teh tarik resipe Visu. Hehehe...

Oh, I have finished New Moon. Yeap, just finished reading it from all the waiting from a lot of travelling last week. Best ah, tapi kat KLIA; takde pulak the 3rd and 4th book. So terpaksa tunggu lagi. Takpe sket je lagi! Hopefully next week will pass quickly. No more office drama please. I'm tired of being stressed about handling stress itself. Work no problem, people - a lot of problem :P Hish...

reading this, you'll know my life is somewhat tak organize because ntah hape2 yang keluar from my mind.

Sampin, Oh Sampin

A sampin is the price of my whole baju nikah! How super expensive has sampin become? I blame this all to the politician who has somewhat commercialized this. Enough with the duit hantaran, to buy own sampin is like half of my earnings! No wonder the gentlemen think a gazzzzzillion times before they get married. Hihi

I was in Pasar Payang today. so, with Mizi's help; i bought Zukry's sampin there. I think he will be satisfied with my choice. Not sure about my Mum and aunts though... But anyway, bought it; so we have to live with it, I'm sure I have great taste :) I want to show it, but taklehlah. Kena datang kenduri baru tahu. Hehehe...

I can't wait to go back next Saturday. People is making me nervous bombarding me wedding preparation questions... Yikes! Takbuat ape lagi. sabar ye, akan balik seminggu utk bersiap2. Tunggu...

Monday, February 23, 2009

In KCH with the almost die laptop. Hope to survive KLIA without laptop. Hehehe...

I travel with a smile

Hi. Appraisal is ready and submitted. I experienced the longest 2 days of 2009 to date. That is the procrastinator that I am and will always strive NOT to be. Hehehe... I have start the last week on Feb 09 travelling to Bintulu. I'm now staying for a night at New World Suite. It's em... pretty impressive for its price, I must say. I have a short presentation to make tomorrow at our crude oil terminal here. Wish me luck for that! J I don't know, but I'm not truly nervous about this. Or maybe, not YET! I have been excused from wearing the coverall since I'll continue travelling again tomorrow at noon so it will be a bit cumbersome since it's pretty heavy with the safety shoe and what not.

My journey does not end in BTU. I have to then proceed to Paka, Terengganu. The thought of finally getting to attend skill group training, made me go Yeay!!! But the distance, the routes is somewhat melemahkan semangat sket. But I'll sacrifice this time! At noon tomorrow, my route will be BTU-KCH-KUL-TGG! That means 3 different flights tau. I hope I have the strength. Let's pray for that. I'm just excited to be out of office for a training... it's been so long.

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Not sure what I'm doing...

What do i write in my appraisal? Em... I have to think long and hard for this. I'm definitely better than my first year of working. That is a certain, at least to me it is. Hehe...

Without the light in my room, sudah rosak and takdapat nak baiki sendiri (what kind of an engineer am I? haha!), I am now residing downstair in front of the TV. I was supposed to have this "Think long and hard" session but ended up typing stuffs in my blog. I'm just so easy to be distracted. Give me a cup of good coffee to top this writing blog thing, i'd say yes to coffee :P

I want to share with everyone the camera and the pictures i've captured during my second trip to Labuan. Tetapi, kemalasan utk amek kamera kat atas melanda. Haha. Sila mintak Zukry post because he has all the pictures already. Hihi.

Oklah, enough merepek. toodles.

Today is going to be a fine day!

Hey everyone, it is not raining today in Miri! Oh my God, this is such a fine day. It's no longer wet and cold like Forks; oh how I miss Edward Cullen! I haven't get to have the 3 other books! Anyone care to buy for me? No? Hehe... I'm at Coffee Bean with Sree and Visu enjoying coffee and bitching about people. One very specific person; only one, so I think this sorts of reducing the "dosa". (Istighfar) Mak and Baby are now at Jakarta, and their agenda today is shopping. I'm trying to forget that but I couldn't. I hope they know what I want.

This week, work wise seriously suck! The suck-ness of it; hadoih! I can't even hold my patience towards everyone. The emotions were just so obvious; people were already thinking "don't bother Teeny. She's occupied with annoyance" Hehe. Close friends and wedding preparations were the only things that were/are keeping me sane these days. I'm overwhelmed with lectures + cynical remarks + boastful people + "I'm much better than you" attitude! Please, go straight to HELL. Don't bother stop and live on earth. Ooops, sorry! :P Terover!

I'm still at Coffee Bean with Sree and Visu. Talked about everything! It's so easy to slip and think that you don't have any friends... Well, life goes on. I'm going to Penang next week! And I'm going Labuan too, during the weekend. I bought the Scratch and Go ticket in Jan, and I have to use it before it expires, next week seems to be the best date :) Then, I'm off for a week of Wedding Preparation!

I realize my Family Day 2009 entry was without the video. I don't know what's wrong. Probably because it's too long. But accroding to the details, the size of the video is still within the range. Hmmm... Taktaulah.

Thanks to who dropped in to give comments on my recent craze of Edward Cullen. Now that Zukry is here, the Edward Cullen fever is somehow less than before. Even though I haven't had the chance to read the 3 remaining books, I already know the ending. Hehehe...

OKlah, i'll write again soon.

Landslide in Miri, A Belated Birthday Celebration, A Proposal and Kursus Pra-Perkahwinan Part I

Today is the first day of Kursus Pra-Perkahwinan at our office auditorium :) It was OK. I mean, I was not sleepy or anything like that. In fact, it is rather interesting. It's been quite a while since I attended any lecture; so it reminds of my university years somehow :)

The ustazs were cool. The first one was a little bit contemporary, the second one is a little bit ustaz-ish but I like to listen to his experiences and what not but the last one, despite the heavy topic [Pembubaran Perkahwinan] and the last (evening) session of the day; but with his clear voice and the depth of the knowledge of the topic added up with real life weird incidences that has occured in Miri, I find his session the best one, today.

It's been raining everyday since I arrived from CNY holidays. Heavy rain, cats and dogs - non-stop! There was a landslide yesterday nearby the city itself, rumah tepi jalan ranap... Kesian kat diorang... We (Visu, Sree and me) passed the area for lunch, when we came back an hour later, the area was a chaos with police, bomba, people were just crowding the place! The rain is making everything so gloomy.

With the gloomy weather, I hope Zukry is enjoying his stay. This time he stayed at a different budget hotel which he thought is so much better that the last one despite the same rate. At least that's a start. Hehe..

The belated birthday calebration : Yesterday after he checked in; we had dinner at Lalapan. He was so frustrated that his last visit, the restaurant was closed. After a lot of "mane hadiah saya?", we singgah at Secret's Recipe to have a belated birthday cake but never got one because all were finished. Well, not all; but yang tinggal only the basic cheese cake. Not quite for my liking last night. We ended up having coffee and he gave me my birthday present!!!

I got my camera. My own camera. I'll show it to you, soon. Probably in next two weeks once my schedule is little bit free. Pending and procrastinating!!! Bahaya! MY CAMERA. It's not the huge camera that people are craving for these day but a digital camera definitely. Yay! Thank you, Zukry! :)

Oh, the proposal... This was a little bit lame of us. Lame of me actually because I asked him to be as creative as he could to have him proposed to me, The Will-you-Marry-Me thingy. And Zukry, always fulfill my wish to whichever level that he could did this yesterday when I was jakun with my camera... First he asked if I have a pen. I always have a pen with me. Hartini's bag was never light and small... :P Then he gave me 3 envelopes that was TO : Me and 1 envelope addressed TO : ZUKRY. The three envelopes were the proposal and the last one should be my answer. I was supposed in writing and give the last envelope back to him... Extreme Poyoness, I know!

We all know that Hartini and Zukry is getting married in June, so the answer is a definite YES - lah. So, I think people in general can see the difference in me with/without Zukry in Miri.

OKlah, korang nak muntah dah agaknya. It's alright. I'm off... Getting ready for dinner. Toodles!

Family Day 2009

Hello! Happy Chinese New Year to everyone. I just came back from a very tiring but great long weekend spent with my family. We had our Family Day last weekend! The most exciting thing is definitely the Sehati Berdansa competition. Like I've posted before, the song chosen this time is Beyonce's Single Ladies. See the video to watch me attempt to dance like her.

Wahai sekalian famili yang membaca, on my defense (Baby takyah defend lah, sebab dia dah mahir joget2; practise kat UNITEN kot. Huehue...); we didn't have time to practice properly like we did last year. I arrived at 2PM, abg picked me up then head on to PD immediately where the Poco-Poco and telematch already started. By the time volleyball finished and we were done with makan2 tepi pantai, then only me and Baby were in front of our laptop (BAWAK LAPTOP nih!) and the big mirror to practise the steps! When i was on the stage, I was like "Ikut ajelah Baby joget... redha!" This year, the crowd judges the competition, and there were no extra (sympathy) mark for the distance me and Baby faced. Hihi... thus, kekalahan... :) It was just too much fun dancing around and receiving cenderahati and what not - tak kesahlah kalah ke hape! Yang penting, I was dancing to "Single Ladies" tau!

Oh, we won Juara Karaoke (Kategori Duet) singing ABBA's "Chiquitita"... Baby off key 2-3 kali, tapi kami tetap juara. Huhu! So we got each a blanket and tuala mandi. Whhheee!!! :) I also have the video of us singing, but it's taking a lot of my time to just upload the video into this post, i just can't wait any longer...

I don’t like it cold and wet

Quoting Bella from Twilight, "I don't really like the rain. Any cold, wet thing, I don't really..."

Miri is like Forks in a way nowadays. Of course, there is NO Cullens here. (There might be a family of the same kind, who knows! Hehehe... But I still want Edward) It is raining almost every day in Miri. It has been really cold and it is like winter in the office. It is just so damn cold! Everyone is covered from head to toe, some have their socks on. Even sweater/pashminas is part of our office attire. Sigh...

2009 Birthday Entry

Happy Birthday to me!

That's right, I turned 26 last Wednesday. My god, I feel so "old" – really! Past 25, was a real goodbye to teen years! Adulthood is scary... Anyway, I was away in KL on 12-14 for a meeting so I get to have a birthday dinner with Mak, Bapak and Mizan at TGIF, Pavilion & a birthday lunch at Dome with Mak. The Caesar salad was really yumm-eh! I also received about 20 birthday SMSes. Thanks everyone! A birthday email were spread into my whole department too, thanks to Jeng-jeng.

Someone important surprisingly forgot about this 14 Jan until I mentioned "Itu je?" like a million times before ending our usual morning call. So, it was a huge drama and 2 nights of tears until last night [My eyes were swollen but I had them covered in smoky eyes. Thanks to black eyeliner and eye shadows]. That was typical me being so emotional and just, so fragile. Well, a promise to re-celebrate and a lot of "I'm sorry" sealed off the drama. Hehehe... I'm still waiting for a birthday present despite the "I don't want your hadiah" yells I made. I know you know this already... You have about 2 weeks to prepare so better starts now...

About all the birthday wishes I made in my previous entry, I was all out searching for Twilight saga books the moment I reached KLIA; I just want these books for my birthday! First stop was the book shop in the departure/arrival hall! That was how desperate I want to know about Bella turning into a vampire or not. Hehehe... [I know she's a vamp, just came back from checking out twilightsaga.com] Kinokuniya, KLCC – Sold out! Times, Pavilion – Sold out! MPH BB Plaza – Sold Out! Is this really the truth or the publisher asked to keep the book/jangan jual lagi kinda-thing? I want my very own copies of Book #2, 3 and 4 just like I bought Harry Potters; except for #5/6 when Bapak bought a copy in Thailand. We have 2 copies of #7! So, there; I want the 3 books for my birthday too. I wouldn't mind paying for them, just let me know which bookstore still have them... I'm that crazy about Edward + Bella, I'm sorry. Haha!

Next trip to KL is in a week time where our Family Day will take place. That means I have only a week to really study the steps for the "Sehati Berdansa". Baby and Me are going against a group of <12 years old girls! Adil ke pertandingan ini, urusetia? I have to get ready to lose... Takut extra kecewa... ;) [Bella is engaged to Edward? For real, God bestnya!!! – i'm still on twilightsaga.com]

Well, anyway – to end my entry, my birthday was a real biasa-biasa one. I wish to meet Zukry for my birthday too, but oh-well. We've registered to attend a kursus together in Miri. Kursus ape? Kursus persediaan... hehe. To my surprise, our YPC arranged this kursus for free inclusive of meals lagi. Bought his ticket, registered... Attend lah. So, kursus Pra-Perkahwinan – checked!

Saya demam

Demam Edward Cullen tak abis lagi. Sedang menonton filemnya using CetRom... The trailer is so much clearer. So much! Duh! It is the CetRom. The last picture is the quality of the movie that I was watching... My God, I can't help myself. Edward Cullen is my own personal brand of heroine... Hihihi. "You are my life now..."

Actually I have just finished reading Twilight. I was at Popular today, after the heavy rain, to buy New Moon but apparently all Stephanie Meyer novels were sold out. I don't know for sure because they were packing to move so I supposed it's just easier to lie. I'll buy one when I get to KL. Anyway, I've learned so many other things about Edward and Bella who wants so much to be a vampire...

The introduction to the next book in Twilight is so tempting, that was why I have to buy it today. After learning that and Pesona Pengantin was sold out, I was so bummed out, takjadi grocery shopping! Hehehe...

Edward, datanglah jengok I kat Miri. Haha! :) You all must think I'm crazy. But whatever, I admit... I'm crazy about Edward Cullen.







I just realized I didn't post I want a sewing machine in my birthday wish. Kan? I posted that one in an email to my family. So, yeah... Anyway, I went to sewing classes after SPM in 2001 but I didn't actually finish. I stopped because... well, University called kot. I forgot. There were 4 types of blouse, baju kurung, baju kurung kedah and baju kebarung with kain of course yang sempat I belajar... Not bad lah kan? It's just that I never get to practise it. I wore a self-made baju kurung putih for my orientation in UTM though. Kira BERJAYA la!

Among 2009 resolution was to bring back this sewing mania lah... I love it. I have the time in Miri. So why not? Oh, i know why... it is because my "Raleigh" sewing machine is at home. I throw the box out already so I wouldn't know how to wrap it and bring to Miri. Plus it's a great reason why you should buy me a new SINGER sewing machine (It's just my preference and kat Miri ada kedai SINGER. Hehehe...)

Homemaker, Who? Me?

Hi.

It has been a week of settling down in Miri. I was way off this 5 days working. I hope my boss or his assistant won't read this, but if you do well... at least I'm telling the truth and you caught me! Hehe... It is pouring rain outside. Super heavy rain! I was planning (read this, planning) to go out for an-hour swimming at KRP but well, it's raining. So it's a perfect reason to stay inside, enjoy a cup of hot not-so-great coffee (I miss caramel latte) and blog.

I grabbed my "500 cupcakes and muffins" recipe booked which I bought in Dec 2007 and started browsing for sinfully delicious recipe that would cause me a day of healthy shakes only (which I have never successfully done!) and to my surprise there are quite a lot of flour-less, egg-less, dairy-less, lalala – less recipes for people who are watching their weight. (Like ehem..., yours truly. Watching je... Haha!)

This brings me to the thought of my little cheapo oven in the kitchen... (The kitchen is out of light since recently... Uncle, please change the light... and in the living room too, please. We are living in the dark here, Uncle. Please help. ) I want a microwave oven just like the one at home. (Home is always the one at Ampang ye. House is in Miri) So, anyone who is really generous; who don't know what to do with their load of money, please take note. The birthday is in 4 days, wedding gift pun boleh... Wahahaha. We got registry system in Malaysia, meh? I want to register!

Let's see why i need this microwave oven:

  1. To bake more chocolate chip cookies
  2. To bake more super moist carrot cupcakes with cheese cream topping
  3. To bake more super moist chocolate cupcakes. Yum!
  4. To bake brownies (provided I found shops that sell walnut. Tak jumpa2 lagi!)
  5. I can easily heat lauk malam tadi. Haha! Or lauk yang dah sejuk from cafe. Big grin :D
  6. I can easily steam fish/veggies. No fuss. Towards healthy living. If atas dapur, al-Malas.
  7. Grilled chicken and salmon (I love salmon!) I finished 2 salmon cut at home last two weeks. Mak, ada lagi 1 je dalam freezer. The other 1, akak sangat tamak; termasak jugak, tapi bagi Mizan. Hehehe...
  8. To try more baking/grilling/steaming recipes before kahwin. Zukry tak kesah sangat. Kan? [Pekerja terlebih rajin, he's at the office now]
  9. It's super chic gadget. A must in every career lady kitchen. Haha!
  10. I just want one!

So, on top of the sewing machine, I want a microwave oven. Support me on becoming the uber-chic homemaker! Wahaha! J

Goodbye 2008, Goodbye KL

Today is the LEAST favourite day of my 2 weeks holiday in KL. This is the day when I have to pack and go back to the land where I earn my money. Hehehe... No family whatsoever but my rezeki is there. Again for like the millionth times, I'm having the I-don't-want-to-go-back syndrome. A syndrome that has never fail to come each time I have to leave home (Well, except once kot; when I leave home for Geneva. Bilakah it's coming again? Hmmmm....)

Anyway, i'm here writing and feeling "why lah i have to work so far away from my family?"... "why lah I always has to be off the ampang house to achieve something that oranglain can achieve here around KL sahaja"... Why lah... So bad of me!

Great news about the coming of a new year. I'm celebrating 2009 with going nearly backrupt. Yes people, YES has not been helping this girl. I have to go out and buy things. The funny thing is I'd like to think that the money spent were all for other people. Tak bagus kan? Mulalah rasa macam "aku dah belanja semua orang" so aku memang best. Padahal ape sangatlah yang dibelanjakan tu.

Anyway, KakLong, KakNgah, Ika... Happy Birthday! I know it's not much I hope you like my gifts. KakNgah, the shoe was worn only twice for less than an hour each time, Please consider it's new :) Plus it's Lewre. KakLong and Ika, I hope you enjoy the Twilight Saga. Ika, please let me know if Bella is forever a vampire or not. Mekaseh :) Before you all forget, my birthday is only 11 days more. Here are some of the things I wish this year:

materials dulu ye. yang not-materials tu kena extra pikir...

1. Camera for daily used. Compact (takyah extra nipis pun takpe) bukan yang besar gabak everyone is crazy about these days...

2. Package for monthly facial treatment. of maybe Package for twice in a month facial treatment to get the best complexion for the Big day. I know i don't have the best but it can be save people. So pleaselah... belikan. Huhu! Kat Miri ada Dermalogica. any takers???

3. Flight tickets.
(a) To go back to KL in February for our little trip to Jakarta. Thank you Bapak for the CNY holiday ticket. I owe you so much, and I have to start paying with materials not just Kasih sayang yang berbahagi-bahagi aje kan? But i know, you don't mind because you're the greatest! :)
(b) To go back to KL whenever.

Sape2 yang nak beli yang lain selain ini, dialu2kan... No problemo :)

4. Buku cerita pun OK gak since I'm trying to bring back this habit back. Chic Lit preferably.

5. Magazine subsription ke (Prefers: CLEO, Cosmo, Eh!)

6. Dan lain-lain

Movies watched during the holidays : BOLT (with Ika), Bedtime Stories & YES MAN (with Zukry). YES MAN, is definitely the movie to end you 2008 with. It motivates me somehow. We both agree that we should do more spontaneous thing like the Niah trip last month. Hmmm... best gak tu.
