Great 2010!

Dear Readers,

To date, I think I have drafted quite a few entries on various occasions but unfortunately; they remain in my head. I never did write them down nor share them here with all of you.

Whatever it is, I hope it’s not too late to wish everyone a Happy 2010. I hope this year will bring more joyous things and happiness to us all. May it be the Best year yet! As usual, new year is the time to actually rejuvenate with all kinds of promises made, goals to achieve, resolutions and resolutions... I announced to the world via Facebook that I have 3 goals that I will put my best efforts to this 2010.

First, is to travel abroad with my beloved husband. Yes, we already had our honeymoon last year immediately after the wedding; and it was magical time. Surreal most of the time but “memang giler best”! So this 2010, we want to go even further away, try looking at a different culture, simply ‘jenjalan’ to other parts of the world. This will be Zukry’s first time travelling abroad (Brunei doesn’t count) and my few times... Very few times. We are very excited. We have planned line up, we contacted everyone we know to find a spot to pitch in, Google-d everything we need to know, calculate things, basically – really just preparing ourselves for it. I for one, has not been spending that much since we made our commitment that was when we bought the ticket!

Oh except when I bought this Mini Pink Dell last weekend! This is almost essential since my HP decided to quit on me due to motherboard failure.

Moving on to my second goal, living together. We have already thought about this even before the wedding, but at that point of time of course making it all legal is more important and this could wait for maybe 6 – 12 months. 12 Dec 2009 marked our 6 months together and we just got to start the efforts to find ways to somehow live together. I’ve already talked to many people on my movement to KL, so that I could be with my family while Zukry maintains in Labuan. At least I don’t have to pay rent when I stay in Ampang. Kan, Mak?  Many also have looked at it as a big risk, with all the rumours on appraisal will be affected lah, ‘considered new’ thus susah nak naik lah, etc. So, we thought let’s give SKO a try. That is bringing Zukry from Labuan to Miri. As of today, according to a manager where Zukry is interested to be in; no vacant position for him to fill in except maybe a spot in Bintulu. But hello, if he has to be in Bintulu; might as well stay in Labuan aje. At least, the island is duty free. Hehe...So next week, I’m going to meet her personally again. See what she has to say when she received his CV (agak gempak CV mamat ni *proud)

Next up, Baby... a baby of my own. Building our family, after maybe a year of enjoying each other’s company; we thought of moving on to add another. This I think we have to be at our healthiest, which sad to say; I definitely am Not. Must work harder on this! Some people say it’s a piece of cake; some just don’t go through the same kind of luck. As for me, i guess the first thing is to get the menstrual cycle right. I have already start ticking my calendar since our wedding last time, consult a doctor, read articles (not much, I even bought a book already! ape ek nama buku tu... sama cam Rachel from FRIENDS read “What to expect when you’re expecting”), etc. In my eyes, Zukry could be a really good father; not sure about myself though. Again, must try harder. I enjoy spending time with Iman Iffah, KakLaila’s daughter. I didn’t pamper her as much as her father did, but I just really like the fact, she enjoys my company too. Iman Iqbal is not a bad too. Now that he can finally walk, he’s just growing to be such an adorable boy with that smile that only shows his 2 out of 6 teeth. Hihi... I called them, the Imans. (I must start finding names too.. ngengada pulak~)

So, those are my 3 major goals this year. I understand the fact that I have to work on the little things to reach these 3 goals. Like eating healthy, exercise, read more, write more, love more, practise self discipline, save more, plan and follow what was planned, etc. I think these 3 are achievable. I just need support, and I’m pretty sure that also will come from my loved ones, kan? insyaAllah, amin...

This 2010 also marked another wedding year. Two of my good friends are almost definitely getting married. Tahirah & Zalina were both engaged last year, and planning to get married this year. What month again? I have to buy tickets already! And my dearest friend, (a great school teacher, kan?) and dearest housemate (who’s playing Sudoku beside me, oh BTW; I’m writing on AirAsia from MYY to KUL) let’s find the best guy for you gals, this year...!

My birthday is coming. In 8 days, I’m turning another year young-er. Huhu. What do I ask this birthday? It is for Zukry to be in MYY on the day itself. But already confirmed he’s coming on 15th, instead of 14th. 14th is still a working day anyways... hehe. Other than that, I welcome USD, Euros, and Pounds if anyone plans to give present. (Grin - :))

I think that will be for my post on 2010.

Signing off,
