After the long break

It's already after midnight and I'm watching AC di sini. Ada Siti Nurhaliza. Shuk is already sleeping.

I just came back from my Johor and Melaka trip. Though there are lots to tell, maybe I just don't feel like writing at the moment...maybe tomorrow since I'll be on leave. Chow dulu..

Gambar Sape ni??

Who is this? Keep on guessing because I am not going to tell.

Roti Bakar, White Coffe & Teh Tarik

We went to Bangi Kopitiam recently after having confusing time on thinking what we want to eat. Shuk finally chosed Bangi Kopitiam and it turned out to be a perfect choice. We have ordered toast, white coffe, teh tarik, half boiled eggs and roti John. I don't know why but everything seems perfect. Just look at the butter melting out..mmm. The eggs were perfect too but the roti John was a little bit salty. Maybe we will go again someday and order the same thing. he he

Sekuntuk Bunga Mawar di Taman Opah


He He He..cantik tak bunga kat atas tu? striking kan warna dia...

I went back to Perak last Saturday to attend a wedding (Shuk's side). As usual, Shuk's sibling will create activities to fill up the time, and therefore, the whole ceremony ended only before 8.p.m. Luckily Shuk and I could stop by at Opah's house and spent the night there. In fact I was so ready to retire for the day after I had my bath. Anyway, my abang misai would still want some hot nescafe so I prepared some. I ended up eating my mom's bread and biscuits stock. Hmmm, dekat kg semuanya sedap kan.

The next day we woke up early and as usual Shuk went to his favorite coffee shop to have his breakfast and read the newspaper. He spent almost two hours there but finally came back with nasi lemak for mak and I.

We went back after having lunch. We reached home at around 4 p.m. and start to rest. We will start our holiday on Wednesday but before that we have loads of work to complete. Please Allah, please let us finish our work on time so that we can have a jolly good time in JB..

Ehh, fasal bunga kat atas tu, lupa la plak, taken from my bedroom in Chemor..Opah's garden, Opah must be very proud of it..

I think I am like Siti Nurhaliza Because....

Title tu memang gempak kan???...he he...

Actually it is about me. I just heard that my sister in law (Shuk's younger sister) who has just got married last year is now pregnant...hmmm...sedihla pulakkan...

I tried to tell myself that it's alright and Allah has granted me so many things and I should be thankful...yeah, I am thankful, but why am I crying then?

Anyway, while I was admiring Siti Nurhaliza's photos this afternoon, I just realized that Siti is still without baby now...he he, and for that matter, Siti & I are having the same problem...I am like Siti lah...he he

There's always reason why you are not granted with something that you really want. I am sure there's a reason, but I am not sure what. At the moment, when I forgot to cry or being sad, I just live my life the most.

As for now, I am determined to loose weight...be healthy...maybe this blog will be renamed .. it will be named as : The Journey to the slimmer me..(sesuai tak?)..chow dulu

Mee Udang Kuala Sepetang


Since the story about Mak Jah's prawn noodles appeared in TV3, I have always wanted to go and try the food myself. Though the idea was brought forward to Shuk several times, it was always being shoved away , for me Shuk just think that it is not important. But yesterday (Sunday, 29 November 2009), Shuk has finally decided to take me there (by suprise, since I was not so familiar on the jalan)..hmmm...


We were alerted earlier on the poor service . Knowing this, Shuk and I have brought along our newspaper so that we could fill the waiting time reading. We were also informed that the soup/gravy is not that tasty, but they do serve fresh prawns, well, let's see...

The moment we reached the place and took our seat, the waiter came. We decided to order one special mee udang which cost us RM11 (mee udang biasa RM7). Shuk was having headache and decided not to eat.

Once we ordered, another waiter came in less than 5 minutes to deliver the mee...waa...very fast

and..the taste..walaaa...delicious! One thing for sure, the prawns were fresh! There were 7 big prawns in my bowl..I think next time I will order the mee udang biasa only since I cannot take too many prawns in one go. Too much for me.

And, if you ask me whether you should go and try?..Yup, do go...we plan to go again one day...

By the way, for those who have no idea where Kuala Sepetang is, it is located approximately 12 km from Taiping...chow dulu

Kisah seorang yang kuat makan & iman kulit bawang

Today, I was awakened by this song sung by the Independence Group Hujan (aku scandal) at 5.15. a.m. I have always find Hujan's Songs very...I am not sure how to put it into words, but the sad lyrics combined with the very energetic music seems sooo...unappropriate and really funny

If you are to watch them perform, listen to the introduction music...whoaaa...they are good man, and you can feel the energy, thenn, Noh will start singing...aduhhh!! His voice is soooo...'I really don't know what to say' and Shuk and I just cannot help laughing...the lyrics is funny too...they try to sound 'puitis' but maybe due their lack of experience or knowledge in writing lyrics, they ended with some very harubiru story...yet, the younger generations adores them!

anyway, since the impact of this song isss...so kelakar, do use it as your alarm. he he...it works for me anyway

Let's get back to my original story, the reason why I woke up early was to take sahur. I planned to fast today.

Unfortunately, due to some unforseen circumstrances i.e. a friend has brought a big tupperware of karipap, I decided to breakfast early, at 8.30 in the morning...hua hua hua

I even went down to my old division and join them for breakfast (eat roti and tumis ikan bilis/serunding)...now I know how the fat accumulated around my body, please pray that I will insaf and eat less, please!

Alfatihah

Baru-baru ini, 11.11.2009, genap 29 tahun ayahanda saya meninggalkan saya. I was ten years old when ayah passed away. Now I am almost 40 years old.

I remember Mek Yah was not around when Ayah passed away, she was on her way to Chemor for school break from JB. She was taking the 'keretapi mel' which took her almost 24 hours from JB to Chemor. There must be a reason why it happened that way but I just cannot imagine if I were in Diah's position...to miss the last moment with your dear father.

I was very young then but the moment I remember most was the time when ayah's body was to be taken to the cemetery. I remember standing at the window facing the stairs (the one with the palang besi) and thinking that I will never see him again, ever. I cried.....

After that, during the school holidays, we spent our nights reading the quran. My father is/was lucky to have many children and a strict wife. Emak has monitored us and made sure that we never missed to read the surah yassin every night.

huh...29 years is a very long time, Al-fatihah. Semoga semua dosa ayah diampuni dan rohnya dimasukkan ke dalam golongan mereka yang mendapat balasan yang baik. Ameen.

rumah cikbib


Ok, these are pictures of the house I live in now with Shuk..this blog is actually dedicated to Anis, who has never been to the house. Cikbib hope you like it.

The picture above was taken to capture the roman blind for the kitchen window..he he...langsir je cantik rumah ni
This is the dining hall. We maintained the old dining set. You can also see the Ikea table lamp at the corner. The lamp was given by Mek Yah for my wedding.
Living hall..he he, this time the theme colour is yellow..a little brown...earth colour..
The hall again, from another angel
This is the house from outside. That is cikbib's new car Anis (in case you don't know). We have two cars now, the black wira and pesona.

For those who has visited my house, you can simply skip this post guys...he he

The pictures were actually taken shortly after we moved therefore it's a little messy. We have done some touch ups and it looks a little bit better now. Do come over whenever you have the time kakak..see ya

Old Promise

Despite of her old age, my mother loves to travel. She has been wanting to visit JB many-many times. I have not really make any promise that I will take her there but I did make a little wish that if I were to have a bigger car (I was driving a Kancil then), I will take her to JB.

Hmmm, now almost 5 years has past (after I bought my black WIRA), and yet...I never had the chance to take my mother to JB...

I have actually told Shuk about my wish before we got married and he fully believes something like that must be fulfilled (provided if you have the time, money etc.), especially if it is something that concerns your mother. We have jokingly raised this matter during our conversation with Kakak and Abang Hatta a few months back, and last week, I received a call from Abang Hatta to confirm that yes, if everything goes on as planned, we will be going to Johore on 23 Decemeber 2009, Insya allah.

We will be spending 2 nights at Desaru, which is approximately 100 km from JB. On the way back, we will spend one night at Malacca. I hope everything will turn out as planned and I pray that there will be less rain...insya allah.

Of course report on the rest of the journey will be posted later...ada saper-saper mahu ikut? There will be satu tempat kosong (teman Opah!)

I need help

I need help here. I want to post pictures here but I could not do it the way I want to. If I were to post pictures, my options are limited. I could only post in on top of my post (I could not do it in-between the sentences). If I were to post many pictures, I could only insert notes for the last picture (the one located at the bottom).....ada sape-sape boleh tolong? Cik Atim bole tolong?

We had a great time hari tu, except make-up I je tak menjadi..kih kih kih

and...semalam birthday pijah yang ke...24 tahun...dah tua dah, dah nak jadi emak pun.

cepatnya masa berlalu kan....






ulat bulu








Shuk & I went back for our monthly visit to opah's house last weekend.

We were informed that there's a wedding reception at Abang Kodon's house, so, why not, we decided to go.
On our way to the kenduri's house, we stopped by at Cikgu Taufik's house and saw this green ulat bulu...it just got me excited so I decided to take a few pictures of it.

Oh, about the kenduri...mmm, food was good but this time we spent only a short time there, tired lah sebab baru sampai.
But kakak was having a good time, well, her good old friends like Faizan & Faizah were there...as for Shuk, unfortunately, Mohd Noor Manuti was not around...as for me, I was friendless..hua hua hua

Hani's Engagement



Another hectic weekend for me and hubby..whoosh...

It started off on Friday night, I have literally planned my evening and that was to prepare the house since Shuk's sisters and mom were coming. But then, the moment I opened my car door, Shuk informed me that we were invited to have dinner at his brother's house.

Luckily my house's condition was not so bad..yup, it was maintained quite well after Kakak left, I was not very worried then.

We had dinner and have only gone back after 12. Once I arrived home, I quickly prepared the rooms so that my visitors can go straight to sleep once they arrived. They left Kulim quite late (after 10 pm) and according to my estimation they will only arrived after four a.m. and I was right..they have only reached my house after 5 a.m. Ergggg I cannot imagine how tired they were.

On the next day, the engagement ceremony was held at 3.00 p.m (Saturday) and I must say I have always enjoyed myself witnessing the discussion between the bride&bridegroom to be representatives ... yuppp, they made me smile

as usual, the family gathering on Shuk's side prolonged...we only left kenduri's house at 8 and we were not going straight back but instead we decided to go to Cheras (Shuk's brother's house). Though at that moment, all of us were not fresh anymore (we need to bath, badly) we just feel that since it's not easy to get those outside KL to come, let's just take the opportunity to bring them around...fresh or not.

At least this time we left for home before 11 (very early for Shuk's family's standard). Once home, we bathed and Shuk and his sisters decided to go to Shah Alam's uptown at Section 24. I was glad that I did not have to go since I was so damn tired... he he, I have to stay and baby sit.

The next day, we were invited to have lunch at Abang Halim's house (again)... Shuk's mom was there anyway.. We had lunch, talked and only left the house at 4.45. Since we need some rest, we decided not to join the group to go to Cheras again.

We reached our beloved house at around 6. Huh..we changed and started to get some sleep...

Oh, as expected, BN won the election...

Tomorrow, I will be attending a seminar at PICC and therefore I could not attend the Hari Raya Party at my old Division (ITS). Have a jolly good time guys..sorry because I could not attend!

Jamuan Raya





/>

Gambar-gambar diatas diambil pada hari Sabtu baru-baru ini, 3 Oktober 2009 bertempat di rumah saya di seksyen 7 Shah Alam. Siapa yang datang? Ramai, Kakak & family, Kakcik & family, Abang Hab & family, Mek Yah & family and my own mother. Meriah? mestilah...

Saya belajar tentang banyak perkara hari ni, antaranya adalah, jangan beli cili kering yang mengerekot tu. Rasanya tidak sedap dan sangat pedas. These chillies has really spoiled the taste of my ayam masak merah that day...tak pe lah, lain kali saya masak yang lain ye.

Oppsss...about the gathering, ada banyak bende yang berlaku sebenarnya. Ada tahlil, ada makan-makan dan ada birthday celebration but the most important thing is to be able to spend time together with your relatives. And of course we were so lucky because kakak, abang Hatta, Fatihah & emak were also present.

Menu...huh..ayam masak merah, sayur goreng and ikan goreng. Opah asked me to prepare sambal belacan, tapi belacannya nggak ada...soooo...

The whole ceremony ended at around 11. Everybody were tired but we had a good time. Let's plan for the next gathering ha...maybe we can do it somewhere else...pergi pantai ke..pergi Muara ke (ada orang yang ambil PHD tu dulu janji nak belanja kat Muara...)...

By the way, if you are wondering what is actually written on the cake (second picture), it was Happy Birthday Malena. It melted and became like that...he he...tapi sedap.

Jamal Abdillah

Here I am, at home and feeling bored while hubby is watching Jamal Abdillah's concert on muzik aktif channel...

He adores Jamal...as for me...okaylah jugak, but I simply dislike his rambut palsu..please la Jamal, do something about that hair, I would rather see you bald.

I started working today. The moment I stepped into my room I was informed that I have to attend a meeting in MITI...isk..

The Hari Raya Celebration was held today, so does the closing of Innovation Day. These occasions makes me eat and eat and eat...

I have already received invitation for tomorrow's Hari Raya party and this will continue till Shawal ends..Tolong Allah, janganlah saya makan banyak sangat, tolong, kuatkanlah Iman saya.

Selamat Hari Raya






I have a lot to tell and many photos to post, unfortunately my handphone cum camera has got some technical error (or whatever error which I do not understand). As a result, all the pictures taken cannot be uploaded..hua hua hua

Anyway, the hari raya was celebrated merrily in Chemor with the presence of almost all family members. And...whether you believe it of not, after counting, it turned out that more that 10 chickens were sacrifice to feed all of us...huh...banyak bona

I am still trying to get photos taken to be uploaded and as for the time being, I decided to post photos of twin and Fatihah making their favorite cornflakes with honey.

Happy Raya everyone and maaf zahir batin.

As for Ari, Afiq, Ira and Ima, Cik Bib wish you all the best for your coming PMR exam. Insya allah cemerlang.

It's almost holiday

I do not feel like working this week actually because I am already in my holiday mood. But then, yesterday, my boss sent me a note saying 'Please finish up your minute as soon as possible. I would want to see it before the raya'. Goodness! I have two minutes to finish and one minit ceraian to complete within less than 2 days. In between there are boxes of checks which I have to sign. And I must say I am new in this 'minit ceraian' and 'meeting minutes' thing. Ask me to generate figures, tables, statistical analysis, I can do it in no time, but then to write.. seriously... help.

Anyway, I decided to take home the work and if I'm lucky maybe I could get Shuk to assist me. Shuk said minutes is easy, just report everything..huh..

..................................................................................
Since we are going back to Chemor on Saturday, we decided to prepare whatever we could remember from Shah Alam. We went to TESCO last night and bought thousand and one thing, from rice to toothpaste, butter, detergent, everything that came to our mind. Tomorrow Shuk is going to buy some chicken, the chicken will join our journey to Chemor on Saturday.
.................................................................................

After coming back from TESCO, I forced myself to look at my minutes. I forced Shuk to look at my minutes. Shuk who boast that minutes are easy suddenly chickened out..He said, yours are complicated cikbib, but I know you can do it. Let me just give you some moral support, I accompany you! Huh! (let me get this clear, accompany is to sleep beside me while I was doing my work)

The tired me managed to maintain my eyes open until 2.30. Yup, though not complete, it was 80% done.


I finally have had everything ready before lunch. Encik Mat thanked me but he hasn't got the chance to go through it yet. He asked me to forward him the softcopy...I am sooo relieved.

and as for the other minutes yesterday (which I managed to complete earlier), Encik Mat has returned it full with his comments...I could not help but smile, how could I compare his standard of language, who am I. I just would take this as an opportunity to learn and enjoy it somehow. Thank you Encik Mat, just bare with this girl who has spent 13 years of her life doing nothing else but Statistics.

09.09.09

Cantikkan this date. I used to wish that I could get married on 9.9.99, but Allah has given me better thing...he has given me to opportunity to visit Makkah..jadi tetamu Allah, Alhamdulillah.

I remember I was sitting on my hotel bed then in Makkah and watched the sky. I wanted to remember that moment and I still can remember it clearly today. Insya allah, akan ada rezeki pergi Haji pulak dalam masa terdekat.

I would also like to dedicate this post to my dearest friend Meen. I think we do share some silly wishes/dreams..he he. I hope yours will come true soon..insya allah

Lipas

Ada banyak lipas la dalam bilik sekarang ni..if I'm not mistaken Izham (one of my officer) has already carried out the usual maintenance exercise to make sure all lipas are gone, but somehow all the very small lipas are still around, erghhh

I woke up late for sahur today, 5.34. he he. Kalu ada budak kecik yang puasa, sian budak-budak tak sempat sahur. Anyway, I only have one budak yang tak berapa budak dah, so, I went straigt and woke him up, no more pujuk-pujuk, Bangun!!!

He only wanted some drink so I made milo panas. I still manage to eat some cold nasi, he he...well, biasa lah tu kan, mesti ada termiss sekali sekala.

I managed to reach office early today, before 7.45. Managed to take a nap lagi..bahagia! and was able to jot down this rojak post...

Hari ni hari jadi Yong

Kalau yong masih hidup, mungkin kita akan try call and wish her happy birthday. I used to do that. Yesterday was abang aziz's birthday..hmm..I will sure miss her during hari raya..anyway, what she needs most now is our prayer...alfatihah.

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Izzat & Athirah

We have visitors last weekend, yup, Izzat & Athirah came.

They spent two nights at our house. The first day (Saturday), we break fast together at home. I cooked ayam kg masak merah and some fried vegetables. We ate the same food for sahur.

The next day, we were invited by Mek Yah to break fast at her house. Sian Mek Yah, she looked a little tired that day. Anyway, we had fun.

We have also discovered that Mek Yah's mango tree is already producing many-many mangoes..we decided to pluck and took back 3 mangoes..hmm..it was yummy. Maybe we can go again and get some more..

Insya allah Ajim is coming this week end. I am also planning to invite Mek Yah's family to come to my house for break fast..is it okay girls? do ask your mother and let cikbib know the answer ..

Early in the morning

Have you ever heard that song? I have heard it somewhere very long ago, it was from a movie, but I could not remember what movie. Since I am now sitting on my bed, facing the windows early in the morning after my suboh prayer, the melody just keep on coming back.

Having to go out of my house early in the morning every day and only to come back when it is almost dark, I just miss being home during the day light. I miss looking at my windows, enjoying the moment sunlight coming through (maklumlah, ada langsir baru kat tingkap tu, he he)

Shuk is beside me, asleep. He purposely turn on the air-condition as to make sure that he can still be asleep comfortably at 9.00 a.m., if not, it will be too hot.

As for me, I could not sleep since I have had my bath. I have to wash my hair. I realized that I have to wash my hair everyday if I were to stay home. The whether is hot and I sweat easily.

hmmm, this post is really for my own reading..it's me talking to my self.

Oh..Izzat and Athirah are here, to spend their weekends. They came all the way from Bangi and Serdang. Their visit remind me of my visits to abang's and mek yah's house when I was single. He he. It's nice to have them around. Insya allah Ajim will be coming next week..I better think of the menu again then.

I called Malena last night. I am not sure whether she was already asleep or not, but we managed to change stories. Her SPM trial is next week and I wish you all the best kakak. I did remember to pray for you this morning, but now, I just remember, why didn't I pray for Huda, Faiz, Afiq and Ari as well? I better pray now before I forget...I pray that all of you will perform in your exam, insya allah.

Huh, I plan to cook fish curry for buka puasa today. I hope Izzat do eat curry.

I better stop and try to get some sleep because after this we have a long list of activities planned. Chow!

Oration Competition

I am so relieved today. What a great feeling.

For your information, we (the organization which I'm working with now) are now in the midst of our Innovation Month (replacing Quality Month) and one of the activity is Oration Competition. My task was to handle this competition which was held today..just now.

To started of, the rain was pouring everywhere around KL valley early in the morning and due to the heavy rain, many of officers arrived late and that includes the officers who are incharge of handling the competition with me.

The butterflies in my stomach rumbled, the backdrop program is with these two officers who are both late. I started to raise my voice!

I am not sure how it happened but somehow things just turned out fine. Though very late the boys managed to have the backdrop ready on time (luckily we have had rehearsal the day before).

Since it was mentioned that attendees will get free credit hour, many turned out and the hall was almost full. And there we go..the competition started and ended smoothly...alhamdulillah.

I did pray last night for this occassion to go on smoothly and for that, Thank you Allah!

rupa-rupanya...

This is a continuation of my earlier post..

I was not acting professionally just now right? I was mad because my name was not included in the final e-mail but I did not ask my boss, I was angry...he he

Anyway, when I was calm again I went to his room and asked, apparently there was a mistake, he said of course he wants me to be there...I need to learn..

he he he...huh, mengabiskan tenaga je merajuk kan...betulla!

sedih!

I have just received bad news...my name was not included in tomorrow's session (tender selling for my organization's new building's ID)..I just don't understand..

I have been representing my boss in almost ten meetings and I have spent one whole Sunday (from 9.00 am to 11 pm) in Le Meridien for the same discussion and yet, after everything is finalized my name is dropped..what a challenge! HuH!!

New handphone number

I was given a new 'old' handphone with a new sim card recently. Well, the timing must be wrong because feel like rejecting it, I would like to stick to my old hp and number...hmm...macam tidak bersyukur pulak kan.

Yesterday abang called and asked me to inform my other siblings to send him (again) a copy of their ic. I keep on wondering why in the world he cannot do it himself. Just write a message and send to 'many' (create a group - adik beradik)...isk..

Anyway, as the youngest, I must obey my eldest abang..and I have sent the same message to the others, cc to abang. I received acknowledgements from all accept kak cik and Echah. I decided to call them today.

Kak Cik apparently has changed her number again (but she cannot give me her number, forgotten..he he). According to her, the new one is more economical. I hope she will forward it to me as soon as possible, just in case of emergency. And maybe, this is the right time to delete all Kak Cik's other numbers in my contact list...I don't know exactly how many, but I remember having Kak Cik 1, 2, 3, final...bla2...

Echah has also decided to change due to the same reason as Kak Cik's...well, at least Ecah's has got her old number for quite sometime already.

I remember Yong used to changed her number quite often those days...without informing others...and it was really frustrating when you fail to reach her...now the tiga dara is changing their number consistently also, but atleast they do inform kakak...

Anyway, people do change their number for certain reasons, but I think your loved ones would really appreciate it if you could inform them. Communication is important especially in time of emergency.

I am movin

Freak Out!

Yupp! That's what I did yesterday, why? Because of the news that Yasmin Ahmad collapsed because of stroke.

Yasmin is not overweight and she's an active person but still...she had stroke due to bleeding in the brain, her blood pressure must be high at that particular time then.

The exact same thing happenned to Abang Aziz (Ika's father) and he did not survive long after that. But then, one of my friend's mother had survived and is still alive and living fully after more than 7 years she had her first stroke (Yasmin had her first stroke 4 years ago).

I am not going to write about stroke here (you can find the defination in wikipedia yourself) but I pray that I really do not have to suffer stroke in future (please). I know that I am overweight and I really am a big eater (big appetite)and I remember my father had hipertension..and I may inherit that from him, and I really look like my father, my mother said I walk just like my father, abang said I move just like my father... and I am afraid to see the doctor just like my father and my husband is not helping at all since he is so scared of doctors himself and...I am damned scared man! I freaked out...

I am almost 40, I have learned to love life nowadays, I have many plans which can only be achieved later in life (sekarang tak cukup duit lagi). I just have to take care of my self more..consume less, but burn up more..please god, give me strength

Orang Ipoh dah Mai






Last Saturday, Kakak, Abang Hatta, Fatihah & Hazim came. They reached Shah Alam at around 1.30 p.m., 1 hour and 30 minutes earlier than planned..he he..

Well, since they came early, we decided to bring them around town, but first of all, we brought them to visit our new house which is still under renovation. After that we went to Mek Yah's house to pick up the twin (mana seronok kalu twin tak join...kan??).

After that we brought them to Bukit Tinggi Jaya Jusco. Little that we know, the shopping centre was totally irrelevant! No fun at all. While kakak and I went around browsing, the kids and Abang Hatta suddenly dissapeared...yup...they went to the food court..twin and Fatihah had each ordered chicken chop...huh..we can have that in Shah Alam also right...anyway..all of us decided to sit and order something. After that we went straight home.

At night, Sara (Abang Hatta's niece) came with her hubby and baby. Amalena & Ari have decided to join our night activities too. Yup, my small apartment was soo meriah (alhamdulillah) with so many visitors. After Sara left, we went to dine at Pelita Section 9 and after that, we went to the famous 'night field' near the Shah Alam's museum.

As usual, I took the opportunity to take a short walk with Malena while the kids were playing badminton. Ari played until his t-shirt was drenched with peluh and he was panicked when Shuk jokingly said he must walk home, smelly...tak leh masuk kereta

We left the field at 12.00, went to sent Mey Yah's children and hit the bed straight after that. I hope kakak and the family did get a good night sleep..

The next day, I woke up at 6.30, solat subuh and went to the kitchen. Hazim's registration is at 11.00, therefore we will only make our move from Shah Alam at around 10.00. I decided to make nasi goreng and fry the instant popia/otak2 which I have brought back from JB. We need energy babe, to stay strong for the day.

When we arrived at UNIKL, we found out that the registration has actually started at 8.30..if only we have known earlier. Since it was already peak time when we arrived, the time spent waiting was almost 3 hours..UNIKL should really improve their registration system.

Once ready, we went to Bukit Endah Bangsar for hostel's registration. The whole process completed at around 5.20.

Kakak had a hard time saying good bye. It's the same for Fatihah and Abang Hatta. I just look from far since gue pun kuat menangis gak. Abang Hatta pun telah meninggalkan beribu-ribu nasihat..jangan tinggal sembahyang, jaga diri baik2...bla bla bla...Shuk pun tinggalkan satu nasihat gak..ngoratlah seorang cikgu dari Maktab Perguruan kat depan tuh...he he, cerah masa depan, ada pencen!!

after that we headed to Amjal's stall..we were so damn hungry.

Abang Hatta ordered nasi putih, sup tulang & telor dadar, kakak could not wait so she ate the nasi lemak in daun pisang (readily available on the table), Shuk ordered nasi putih & paprik, Fatihah ordered nasi goreng (nasib baik lapar sangat, if not sure tak lalu makan sebab sedih) and I ordered mihun tomyam.

Alhamdulillah, kenyang perut senang hati...lepas tuh, kami pun hantarlah abang Hatta balik, masuk tol Jalan Duta ajalah, lepas tu dia pergi Ipoh, kami balik Shah Alam.

Malamnya, Shuk lena terus lepas Maghrib. I stayed up for a little while to watch final Mentor. Tak habis pun, lena separuh jalan. Esoknya baru cari dalam internet siapa yang menang.

welkamm..are-mae-are-rep

betul ka ejaan tuh? anyway, I have just realised that I have a new follower..amir arif namanya...WELKAMM...

I just remember, Opah was telling me that amir and his siblings has helped opah to clean/wash her flowers recently..she is very happy.Thank you Amir, lain kali buat lagi ye.

SELAMAT DATANG

Kata orang, kalau rumah kita selalu diziarahi orang, maksudnya murah rezeki.

I am living in an apartment which is located on the 6th floor. It's a nice cute apartment but for visitors, they will find it hard to find a place to park their car. Due to this, we seldom have visitors.

But somehow, di hari-hari terakhir kami tinggal di sini (insya allah akan pindah in August), ramai tetamu hadhir. Semuanya untuk menghantar anak-anak ke universiti/kolej.

Abang Shuk ada datang on 21 June...bersama lima orang anak-anak nya dan saya telah buat caramel (caya tak?) and goreng popia segera. Hmm...mendapat sambutan.

On 27 June, Abang (Cik Mat/Pak Ngah) pula datang bersama-sama lima orang anak-anaknya...huh, meriah jadinya rumah. For dinner saya masak udang tumis dengan sayur campur...for breakfast the next day saya masak nasi goreng...Good Luck Athirah...Semoga cemerlang di UKM dan kalau ada peluang, carilah jodoh yang baik juga.

On 30 June, Kakak Shuk pula datang (Kak Maton). Dia datang membawa suami, anak (5 orang), menantu and one cucu....lagi meriah...tapi tak tidur...singgah sahaja. Since saya kerja, saya cuma buat air teh aja and hidang biscuits & ice cream. Malamnya kami pergi rumah Abang Shuk di Taman Equin untuk dinner.

and Insya allah, Kakak & Abang Hatta will be coming minggu ni, 11 Julai. Ajim akan mendaftar di UNIKL on 12 Julai...dah excited ni...tengah fikir nak masak ke atau bawak jalan...Abang Hatta tu suka keluar kut.

Anyway...Selamat Datang Semua Orang ...WELKAMMM...WELKAMMM...

Semalam..

We went back to Chemor on Friday, reached the place around 1 and went back to sleep.

Actually it has been a tiring week for me and also Shuk. To manage my things and move to new division really tire me. Due to this prolong tiredness, on Saturday, we continue sleeping after our Subuh prayer and only woke up at 8.00 (he he...imagine how marah opah is).

After that, my eating marathon started. Opah made some nasi goreng with kacang panjang that came straight from her garden..sedap. Shuk and Izzat on the other hand has also brought some nasi lemak from their favourite stall. huh...rasa berdosa makan.

Emak has cooked some fish curry for lunch. We had a late lunch (at around 2.30) since everybody was full already.

At around 3.00 Shuk went back to Ijok..kononnya ada durian.

Kakak arrived at around 3.10 andddd, aktiviti di meja makan diteruskan. Kakak brought along some goreng pisang and kuih...I made tea..and there we went, we touched all topics, family, artists (Michael Jackson), everthing, you name it..and ate.

Maksu (anak opah demam)came at around 6.30...she has some important discussion with Emak..Kakak went back at 7.00 and surprisingly Shuk arrived back from Ijok at 8.30...mesti bawak laju tu

Shuk dapat 6 biji durian..alhamdulillah...ingat hati nak makan banyak, tapi tak larat pun...kami buka 2 biji sja.

Esoknya, kami keluar rumah pukul 9.15 pagi. Singgah sekejap rumah Mek Yah hantar cempedak..sian twin, they can smell durian, but there were no durians...nanti suruh papa beli ye.

After that, we went to visit our new house at Jalan Ferum.

My husband and I are now busy with our new house (the old house that we bought). Since it is not so new, there's quite a number of things that we need to do to improve the condition of the house.

We have chosen the contractor and they are now doing the renovation work. Based from the proposal, the total cost would be RM25K and that does not include lights and fans (Yesterday we have spent RM1,500 for lights and fans...huh...) and other hidden cost that does not appear in the quotation.

I visited the house yesterday to check on what the contractor has done. The upstairs floor was almost ready and so does the ceiling. Hmm...I think my husband/contractor has made a few decisions without consulting me (the boss/queen of the house, he he)...which I really think they should...and, being me..I just ask them to, please.

I am a little bit sad to see how small the kitchen has became once they built the kitchen cabinet. It is almost as big as my Baiduri's kitchen. But then, let's look at the bright side...less space would mean less maintenance/cleaning to do.

I wanted to enlarge the kitchen actually but that would burst my limited budget, so, we decided to hold the idea as for now. Maybe later, insya allah.

The process of buying lampu and kipas was not that simple either. First you have to find the best shop (we visited 5 shops and it was tiring). Once we decided on the shop, we have to choose the type of lampu/kipas that we like/can afford. After that, my husband will do the bargaining (he is very good in this). The time spent it the selected shop was almost 1 hour...and I was soo hungry.

Since we only managed to finalize everything at around 7 pm yesterday, we just have to go back for Maghrib first instead of going somewhere for dinner. Once we reached home, we decided to have dinner in instead of out. I cooked kerapu sweet sour with sayur campur. As always, sedap ke tak sedap ke, semua licin.

We were so tired last night that at 10 pm, both of us could not open our eyes anymore. Only this I morning I heard that Federer won the Wimbledon..and I am so happy!

Well, today Shuk is suppose to see the contractor again today..to clarify on a few things...I hope everything will go as planned, Insya allah!

congratulation abang Hab

I received a call from Kak Lina on 18 June 2009(thursday night) where she invited Shuk and I for a kenduri kesyukuran. I did ask her the kesyukuran is for what..she did not answer, she said ' I'll tell you later'.

We were not informed on the 'aturcara majlis' earlier and simply do our own planning. We planned to perform our Maghrib prayer at Bukit Beruntung R&R therefore we started off from Shah Alam at around 7.00, solat kat Bukit Beruntung and went straight to Sg Buaya.

We arrived at Sg. Buaya at around 8 only to find out that the Imam was already about to finalize his doa'..ada baca yassin and tahlil rupanya. If we have known, we should have came earlier.

Anyway, Mek Yah's family (plus Along) and of course Kak Ina's family..her kakaks, abangs and everybody were around. We ate until we cannot ate anymore and sembang-sembang. We were actually waiting for Kak Cik yang tak sampai-sampai.

Mek Yah went home at around 9.00. while I decided to wait for Kak Cik. Bukan senang nak jumpa adik beradik ni, so I guess since I was already there, why not wait.

Kak Cik arrived at about 10.00 but it I think it was really worthwhile to wait. The whole family except for Amal & Amir were around. Since most guests have already left, Kak Ina & Abang Hab could afford a break and we spent some time sembang2 and had some nescafe tarik.

We went back to Shah Alam at almost twelve...and, I was right, the kenduri was for abang hab's long awaited promotion..he he...congratulation lah Leftenan Kolenal Abdul Wahab!

DONE!!

I have moved to my new division, 100%. And how do I feel? *?*$!%

The last few days was very tiring. I became the shredder machine, tearing all those papers with confidential info. Thank god it's over. I am determined to be more organize and do spring cleaning more often in future.

I actually have started to sort out my things last Friday. I did not really do anything on Monday because of the afternoon meeting. I managed to get 98% ready by yesterday and yes today, I am already in the Corporate Division.

How do I feel? It remind me of the time when Emak & Abang left me at MRSM Terendak in 1983. I was lost..alone.

Actually the feeling started when Zul & Shahril sent my things to my new room and said goodbye...he he...believe it or not I started crying (but they did not see lah)...goodness.

After that I cried again in the toilet...I sure hope this will be over soon.

I just heard from Zai that I will not be attending the WGFDIS meeting in Melaka on the 14th July...though I understand why, I still wish that I could go..he he..because I have been excited about it since last April...tapi takpe,as Shuk said, Melaka dekat je, nanti kita gi sindri..tq beb

wokay..that's for today. Itulah padahnya when you are stationed at one place for too long..I hope this is a start for me, maybe I could go somewhere else from here, Insya allah

And there goes the legend..MJ

I wanted to write about this last Friday but could not find time. Anyway, better late than never.

When I was on my way to office last Friday, almost all radio stations were doing tribute to the legendary Michael Jackson. I think the most interesting one was from Hot FM where the topic of the day was how Michael Jackson influenced your life.

He he, one guy was telling a story how he and his frieds would wear a pair of white stockings to work, with their black shoes..he he...that made me smile because I sure remember those days...

As for me, listening to MJ songs will bring back school days memories. I was in MRSM Balik Pulau and I remember one morning when I was awakened by this loud song..yup, it was the introduction on MJ's popular song..Beat It...huaaaa...I think that was among the best year,..Total Eclipse of The Heart..the one from Boy George, For Your Eyes Only...these songs will bring me back to 1984...

Even my mother is amazed by him...she loves his moonwalk. I do think that nobody can dance as well as MJ. Hmmm..tapi dah meninggal pun.

I have just received this one story about Nabi Muhammad S.A.W. The story is about the time where Malaikat Maut is about is take his life...I imagine if I were there, during that time, I must be very sad too. Attached is the the story which I like to share..

AIRMATA RASULULLAH SAW...

Tiba-tiba dari luar pintu terdengar seorang yang berseru mengucapkan
salam. "Bolehkah saya masuk?" tanyanya. Tapi Fatimah tidak mengizinkannya
masuk, "Maafkanlah, ayahku sedang demam", kata Fatimah yang membalikkan
badan dan menutup pintu.

Kemudian ia kembali menemani ayahnya yang ternyata sudah membuka mata dan
bertanya pada Fatimah, "Siapakah itu wahai anakku?"
"Tak tahulah ayahku, orang sepertinya baru sekali ini aku melihatnya,"
tutur Fatimah lembut. Lalu, Rasulullah menatap puterinya itu dengan
pandangan yang menggetarkan.

Seolah-olah bahagian demi! bahagian wajah anaknya itu hendak dikenang.

"Ketahuilah, dialah yang menghapuskan kenikmatan sementara, dialah yang
memisahkan pertemuan di dunia.
Dialah malaikatul maut," kata Rasulullah, Fatimah pun menahan ledakkan
tangisnya. Malaikat maut datang menghampiri, tapi Rasulullah menanyakan
kenapa Jibril tidak ikut sama menyertainya.

Kemudian dipanggilah Jibril yang sebelumnya sudah bersiap di atas langit
dunia menyambut ruh kekasih Allah dan penghulu dunia ini.

"Jibril, jelaskan apa hakku nanti di hadapan Allah?", tanya Rasululllah
dengan suara yang amat lemah.
"Pintu-pintu langit telah terbuka, para malaikat telah menanti ruhmu.
"Semua syurga terbuka lebar menanti kedatanganmu," kata Jibril.
Tapi itu ternyata tidak membuatkan Rasulullah lega, matanya masih penuh
kecemasan. "Engkau tidak senang mendengar khabar ini?", tanya Jibril lagi.
"Khabarkan kepadaku bagaimana nasib umatku kelak?"
"Jangan  khawatir, wahai Rasul ! Allah, aku pernah mendengar Allah
berfirman kepadaku: "Kuharamkan syurga bagi siapa saja, kecuali umat
Muhammad telah berada di dalamnya," kata Jibril.
Detik-detik semakin dekat, saatnya Izrail melakukan tugas. Perlahan ruh
Rasulullah ditarik.

Nampak seluruh tubuh Rasulullah bersimbah peluh, urat-urat lehernya
menegang. "Jibril, betapa sakit sakaratul maut ini."
Perlahan Rasulullah mengaduh. Fatimah terpejam, Ali yang disampingnya
menunduk semakin dalam dan Jibril memalingkan muka.

"Jijikkah kau melihatku, hingga kau palingkan wajahmu Jibril?"
Tanya Rasulullah pada Malaikat pengantar wahyu itu..
"Siapakah yang sanggup, melihat kekasih Allah direnggut ajal," kata
Jibril.
Sebentar kemudian terdengar Rasulullah mengaduh, karena sakit yang tidak
tertahankan lagi.

"Ya Allah, dahsyat nian maut ini, timpakan saja semua siksa maut ini
kepadaku, jangan pada umatku."
Badan Rasulullah mulai dingin, kaki dan dadanya sudah tidak bergerak lagi.
Bibirnya bergetar seakan hendak membisikkan sesuatu, ! Ali segera
mendekatkan telinganya. "Uushiikum bis shalati, wa maa malakat aimanuku"
"peliharalah shalat dan peliharalah orang-orang lemah di antaramu."


Diluar pintu tangis mulai terdengar bersahutan, sahabat saling berpelukan.
Fatimah menutupkan tangan di wajahnya, dan Ali kembali mendekatkan
telinganya ke bibir Rasulullah yang mulai kebiruan..

"Ummatii,ummatii,ummatiii?" - "Umatku, umatku, umatku"
Dan, berakhirlah hidup manusia mulia yang memberi sinaran itu.
Kini, mampukah kita mencintai sepertinya?
Allahumma sholli 'ala Muhammad wa baarik wa salim 'alaihi

Betapa cintanya Rasulullah kepada kita.

I am now belong to nowhere

Sodih den...I am suppose to move to my new division today since my current boss's request to retain me till 17 July was not answered.

Anyway, I went to see my new boss today but apparently he was very busy preparing the minutes for this afternoon management's meeting. He apologised and said he will come back to me tomorrow.

So here I am, sitting in my old room, doing my old job still...he he...

BERITA TERKEJUT!

I received a memo from Human Resource office this morning, and guess what?..I have to move to Corporate Division and it is effective next week, 29 June 2009. Hmmm, I have mixed feelings about the whole thing..sad, happy, worry...

Everyone in my division are equally effected. They are not sure whether to be happy or sad. Maybe this is a good opportunity for me (career wise) but at the same time I shall miss the division, the team that I am in now.

I have no choice actually, I have to go and therefore I decided to welcome the changes and I pray hard that I will perform in the new division. Wish me luck!

Monday, June 15, 2009

hey!!

Nothing much actually. Now is my lunch break, I went out early, and therefore manage to come back early. I have to to settle many things before flying to JB this afternoon, there's some work to do.

I can't get into Amalena's and Hanisah's blog today, well I assume they don't want people to read whatever they post there, so, be it.

Hmm, to my husband, you must think about your own dinner tonight while I berpoya-poya di JB..he he, jangan lupa basuh baju (kalu rajin kalu).

okay for now, chow chin chow

Haze

When I woke up this morning, I could not see Sultan Salahuddin mosque anymore. Haze is everywhere and limited your view. The temperature is hot yet we could not open our balcony door...

While I was driving to office, I imagine the situation like the one in 'mist' - the movie...he he...but there's no evil creatures around ringht?..but I must say it is very bad.

Hmmm...human's wrong doing. It's all because of that. I only wish for a heavy rain, to wash away dust and haze

ADAKAH ANDA PENYABAR??

LAST NIGHT, I HEARD OUR PM'S WIFE MENTIONED THAT 'NAJIB SEORANG ISTERI DAN PEMIMPIN YANG PENYABAR' HMMM

I think my 'tok bomoh', 'mat misai', 'driver', 'personal assistant','sleeping parter', 'dearest friend' and 'everything you can name it lah'...he he, I am sure you know who you are...you may not a 'pemimpin yang sabar'..tapi I think you are very sabar with me lah...thank you....

I'm back

Yup, after a long break, I'm back working!! Mencari rezeki yang halal.

The holiday was fun (but the whether was extremely hot). I went back to Chemor on Friday night, spent my night there and started off to Ijok the next day.

We went for this 'meminang' ceremony on Sunday. The house is located at Kg Sirih Bukit Mertajam. The best part was of course during 'makan-makan'. They served mee rebus, karipap, agar2 milo & agar2 jagung. All were delicious. If only my tommy could spare a little bit more space...he he, I'd surely tambah sikit mee rebus tu. (alhamdulillah perut tak besar sangat, if not, I may have to undergo that perut punye bypass, like shanie, sekarang ni pun tgh dok pikir2)

On Monday, Shuk & I went to Alor Setar to visit our friend. Anas is having cancer. I pray for his recovery, insya allah.

On our back from Alor Setar, we stopped at Sungai Petani (umah abang). Best giler jumpa semua orang, but then abang was not around, he was on his way back from Sarawak. We bathed and had dinner. Ifwat did ask us to spend the night there, but since we have other arrangements, maybe next time. Kak Nak served mihun tomyam (sodap) and the girls prepared cucur ikan bilis...and ayaq teh panas. Hmmm semuanya sedap. We left SP at around 9.30 and reached Chemor at 12.00. We went straight to bed.

The next day, we went to visit Acu & Paksu and Uda & Mak Uda. They live next to each other now, which makes it easier for us to visit. Paksu looks more cheerful and I think the condition of the house is much better, no ayam and no kucing..he he

We went back to Shah Alam after that and rest. When I think back, why didn't I take any pictures (a picture speaks a thousand words - Imaan said this)...maybe next time

Today is Atim's Birtday

I was just being scolded by my boss. As usual, she will ask questions that I could not answer. He he, this time I was just too tired to find out the answers though I know she will ask, I have too much to do with so little time.

DG is going to China and Korea. This was not in the original timetable, I found out later that PM wants her to go. The preparation then is as usual, tergesa-gesa. But then, due to past experience, we'll manage.

Hmm, when I was filling up the request form this morning, I realised that it's Atim's Birthday (my good old friend). Happy Birthday, makin tua you, he he. You have your new house as a present..hebat tuh.

Okay, I got to continue working...chow dulu

Friday, May 22, 2009

a short call to emak

I have to call emak at the right time because if not, she will sound so not in the mood to talk.

You must not call at around 11 a.m., that is the time for her to teach the children read quran, you cannot call at around 3.00p.m, that's telenovela time, do no interrupt...do not call at 6.30 p.m...another telenovela...so, it's not easy to find the right time when you and her are both free.

But I called her at the right time just now and she was happy talking to me. Hmm, she said there's two pineapples that is about ready to be eaten, and she asked me to buy some chocolates...he he...sape-sape balik, tolong belikan ye.

Happy Birthday to you

Happy Birthday to Fatiha

Happy Birthday to YOu...


From : uncle shuk & cikbib

my boss is back today! Lega sungguh, jenuh jadi boss selama 8 hari...huh.

I was called once on my way back home by Datuk DG, I had to make u-turn and go back to the office. Luckily I was still in Brickfields.

The office was huru hara sikit sebab I was the boss, he he, luckily tak pecah.

Anyway, welcome back boss, I am soo happy that you are back.

Big Spender

Last Saturday (16 May 2009), I went shopping and goodness, I did spend a lot.

We went out at around 11 a.m. The first location was the PKNS complex. We wanted to visit the pusat zakat to clarify on this one problem which we are not sure about. Unfortunately the office closed (only open on 1st and 3rd week of the month), so, we just have to go another time.

After that we stopped at this one electric shop, to find replacement for our washing machine 'penangkap habuk'. They do not have it readily available, so, we have to make on order and come back next week.

Since we decided to buy ADIDAS shoes to replace our old jogging shoes, we stopped at one shop (still in PKNS complex). Instead of two pairs, Shuk has kindly decided not to buy but instead will wear my old one, and therefore, we managed to save a few hundreds.

We walked to Alam Sentral after that and went looking to this one shop that sell BIODEX product. We found out about it in the internet. Almost one hour was spent there listening to the instructions and almost RM700 was spent. Phuhh...Please do pray that this will work, I must admit that I'm afraid, but I still hope that I can conceive.

We could not go back to PKNS after that since it was raining. We decided to stop and and had some drink outside Alam Sentral. While having drinks, we saw these two children (dkk, beggars) were having nasi ayam. Shuk made this remark where 'peminta sedekah pun boleh makan nasi ayam'. I kept quite because they are still very small and I know they must be supervised by some other people (sindiket). After that I remember seeing the girl wanted a big portion of her food to be wrapped, I just thought that her body is so small, she must be a small eater.

Once the rain stopped, we continued our walk to PKNS complex where the car was parked. Again we spotted the presence of the two beggars playing outside the HOTEL..(is it BLUE WAVE?)..nama aja orang Shah Alam...but this time there's another boy, and he is blind. The little girl who wrapped her food just now was giving her food to the blind boy and I was soo touched. Rich, poor, beggar or not, they are as human and they love and take care of each other.

The next place was Section 18 this. We went to the bank first to pay our car installment and after that we want to buy new handphone. Being a paranoid person, I really have had it with my not so old handphone (Nokia E66) . The battery can only last for approximately 12 hours. What if I were to go outstation?

With my understanding husband (kih kih kih), we went to this one shop at Ole Ole. Eventhough my earlier plan was to buy a very basic handset, somehow the one I bought was a 'TOUCHED SCREEN'. Shuk will use my E66. Fortunately the adik had advised us to use a much powerful battery and alhamdulillah, my E66 batterry this time did last for 2 days.

We reached Baiduri at almost 4 pm, rushed for our zuhur prayer, had bath, solat asar and went to Subang Permai. Ada house warming.

Since both of us are so lapar, we just ate! Orang lain I tengok makan sikit aja, tapi I dengan Shuk...huh. Shuk siap tambah lagi nasi.

There were soo many type of food, nasi tomato, nasi lemak, laksa, roti jala, bubur jagung, kuih yang banyak and sedap (they ordered from Chili Merah apparently, no wonder sodap) and the most important thing our empty stomach.

Huh, we went back full and half sleepy. Malamnya nak tengok AF...

At night, AF ntah ke mana, Shuk and i ntah ke mana...kami ZZZZZZZZZ....We only woke up around 11, managed to watch Hafiz won our dream car (huwaaa)...we had some drinks and biscuits (got hungry again)...solat Isyak and managed to watch tv for a while and hit the bed again....but it was fun

Friday, May 15, 2009

Do you remember me Amirah?

Esok harijadi Amirah..I just wonder whether Amirah remembers me at all, whether I am in her memory database at all...but she is in my database memory, if she is interested to know.

I do not think that this wish does have a meaning to Amirah at all since everything changed TOTALLY and I'm sure there are more important people around her these days, anyway...dari kejauhan ini, dari kesayuan ini, I would like to wish Amirah Happy Birthday, dan semoga ditunjukkan Allah jalan yang benar dan semoga di dalam keasyikan kita bergembira di dunia ini, kita akan tetap dikurniakan pengakhiran yang baik, insyaalah...

nukilah : gagak di rimba
(peminat filem mat laksa sure tahu nih)

Birthday Abang Hatta (Pak Yang)

Today is Abang Hatta's birthday but I am not sure about his age. If he reads this, wishing you the Happiest Birthday Abang Hatta. I am sure after everything that you went through you are a much better person now than before. Semoga dikurniakan kesihatan yang baik dan dimurahkan rezeki selalu..Thank you for everything

today...

Ainaa's & Imaan's blogs really cheer up my morning, it's really funny. Tukar Tiub was even funnier, please read on Isham's BM lesson, the one posted on Friday was equally funny.

It's Monday, and I really pray that the week will go on smoothly with the absent of my immediate boss(with me being the substitute boss, it's freaky)

I went back to my hometown on Saturday and I must say it was a nice one. Izzat was there and kakak came in the evening. Since kakak has brought enough food (pizza & mee rebus), we simply lazed around the dining table the whole evening. Maybe due to the heat, everybody loved my teh-o(ahmad tea-earl)

At around 10.p.m. we went up and continue watching tv, cerekarama. I managed to stay till the end of the story, I guess it must be a good one then..interesting enough to keep my eyes open.

The next morning, after subuh, everybody helped opah to clean the compound. Maybe due to the dry season, the amount of dried leaves were plenty and no wonder opah requested us to help. Anyway, it was fun, good exercise and the amount of time spent was less since 5 of us worked simultaneously.

After the cleaning session, we had breakfast and once again we assembled at the dining table. My earlier plan was to go back as early as possible, but we only managed to leave the house around 11...we will have to go back to Shuk's kg one 31 May..his anak menakan nak bertunang...

On my way to office this morning...

On my way to office this morning, I cried 3 times..uwaaaa..why? Apparently the topic discussed in all radio channels were on your mother (emak saya).

The first song I heard today was Ibu from P.Ramlee and I must confessed, this morning the song sounded soo menusuk jiwa. After that there were calls, each caller will have different stories and the sad ones really made me cry.

I have to admit that I am not actually a good daughter myself. I am stubborn and till now I will always say my prayer whenever I am about to visit my mother. I will pray that each visit is without any small fight/disagreement. Urggh...it's not easy I tell you..but, even though I'm stubborn, I still remember clearly when I will make sure that I apologise after my Maghrib prayer whenever I think I had done something wrong (waktu kecik-kecik la). I was so scared that mak would marked me as 'anak durhaka'...tak cium bau sorga beb...

I seldom ask for mak advice and never ask for money also (he he he), especially nowadays, but I had always ask her to pray for me, everytime..like when I am about to make presentation, I will ask her to pray that I could make a good presentation, if I'm demam, I will call mak to pray for my recovery, I asked mak to pray that I could afford to buy a house on the tanah (I'm living in an apartment now, after that please pray that I will have enough money to renovate the house, please pray for....everything.

But I wonder whether mak did pray for my jodoh...if she did, it really took a long time for that prayer to be granted, he he.

Well, being the youngest and the one caused the most problems, I try to spend more time with mak nowadays. I just do not want to be like one of the caller this morning (a guy), where he regretted the fact that he did not have the time to really take care of the mother when she was sick..it haunts him.

Semoga mak dipanjangkan umur, dimurahkan rezeki dan diberikan kesihatan yang baik, insya allah. Happy mother's day

Untuk semua kakak-kakak saya...and kakak2 ipar saya..happy mother's day to all of you.

what if you are rich?

Azizi Ali, a personal finance coach and author was asked this question (have you read his books?) : Do you think it's possible to become wealthy and not be changed by all that money?

his answer was : I read some time ago that money amplifies what you already are. If you are nasty when you have little money, you will become nastier when you have a lot of money. if you are a good human being when your pockets are empty, you will become even better when you have a lot of money. And I have found out this to be very true.

Interesting answer? What if all of a sudden you become a billionaire...hmmm, would I changed?..I just hope that if I were to change, it is a change to become a better person.

PESTA BUKU - PWTC - 26 APRIL 2009

We decided to visit the Pesta Buku yesterday, after Hishamudin Rais announced in his blog that he will be there to promote his book...he he he, but the timing was off, we went there earlier, Isham was only around from 3.00 to 5.00.

Anyway, that's not the main purpose we go there of course, we just only want to find good books to read.

Once we walk out from the Putra Commuter Station, we could see cars and busses parked along the road..I guess we made a right decision not to drive but to take the train instead.

There were so many visitors that made it almost impossible for us to browse and enjoy the books. But still, we did buy four books (all religous book). I bought one on Cerita Rasul2 (to refresh my memory), another one on Khalifah Umar Abdul Aziz (Lim Guan Eng has read, so I just think I should/must myself) and I have forgotten the title of the other two..

I have again sprain my big leg, this time it's the right leg. It was painful but alhamdulillah I still could get up and walk and come to work today!

hmmmm

This was actually written earlier, but I guess rather than to delete and waste, maybe it is best to post it anyway...eventhough it may not be so timely (statistically speaking)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I am at the office, but since I'm feeling a little bit sleepy, I decided to write something..but what thing...hmmmm

It's Friday and if not tonight, I'll be going back to Chemor tomorrow. It's my monthly visit, to give opah some money, to do some marketing and...maybe to take opah out.

We will have to stop by at Kuala Kubu to visit Atikah on Sunday, this time I'll make sure I have some food with me..he he..sian Ika,Cikbib bawa perut sendiri aja. I have also bought the things Ika asked me to buy, some special soap (for her skin), lip gloss (hooo) and.. that's all actually but I decided to buy for her Johnson & Johnson perfume.

I am driving nowadays so I am less stressed (but more money to spend). I have this book which I kept for the purpose of recording my daily meal intake (my slimming journal)..but lately the book is used to culcalate my income and expenditure, as to make sure I have enough for my daily life and also my LOAN!!

Recently, after coming back from Singapore, I told my husband that I feel a little tired and is a little bit lazy to work, and Shuk has simply warned me that I better work hard again because the total amount of loan that I have to pay is $450,000.00, and that is almost half a million. Tulonnnn!!

Atikah is now a wirawati




I have taken some pictures on the day I sent Ika to PLKN. Photos were taken at Shah Alam's stadium.

Ika was okay, cool. She did not shed a tear..only I did.. he he..I was just imagining if Yong was there.. I think she would be very worried.

Mek Yah and I went to visit Ika on 28 March. We were so hungry but we did not prepare anything. Fortunately, one of Ika's friend's parents invited us to join them for lunch and we (muka tak malu), simply hantam saja...lega...alhamdulillah.

I called Ika yesterday and she was on duty (she was the receptionist). She asked me to buy for her a few things..maybe I shall drop by on my way back from Chemor next week.

The Wedding







I have never actually enjoyed any wedding event before my own wedding day. Only at the age of 36 I realised how enjoyable and important a wedding should be. Everybody will be around doing activities together. Kenduri held in our side of family should be more fun since we have less thing to do. Everything is being outsourced and the only thing that we need to do is simply sit and do little and enjoyable things like preparing the room, door gifts etc.

Eversince my wedding I have been looking forward for my nieces' & nephews' wedding. I look forward to attend the engagement day, or the day where all of us would go and pinang anak dara orang lain...I have attended one on my husband side and have always looking forward for my side to happen...

I have imagined giving assistance in anything like choosing the cadar, bunga telur etc and I guess finally it has happenned recently, in it's very own way.

I must congratulate Kakak, Abang Hatta and of course Abang Hatta's family to make the event smooth and 'memorable' one. Except for the weather (how could we control this)...everything went as planned and I must say Fizah look extremely happy ... Fatihah and twins are as cheerful as ever but unfortunately Ari was not around...(cian Ari...)

During the kenduri I have really lost my strength to avoid food.. everything was delicious, the gulai nenas,sambal belacan, ikan masin, ayam bakar & the delicious kuah asam, rendang tok and not forgetting the dessert...he he he...mek yah pun makan banyak gak kan? I still remember the taste of the black coffee during the night...

And...for my other nieces & nephews...in case you don't know, your acik bib here is really looking forward for the day of your wedding...let us meet again in...maybe Anis's...yes!

Langkawi Trip - 2






Langkawi trip part 2 : I just have this urge to update my blog today, now...so here I am.

We checked out from our Hotel (LPP) at around 9.00 am. We went for breakfast and headed off to Gunung Mat Cincang.

We did stop at two shops selling Gamat products though. A short visit became a long one since Abang Hatta, Kakak and Opah befriended the shop owner and had a political chat...then they got discount, so I guess it was worth it.

The journey continued and during the journey Kakak was having this doubt on whether or not to take the cable write. I prayed she would and yes, my prayer was granted, alhamdulillah.

All of us went for the cable ride and it was a lot of fun!!

The weather was soooo hot. Once we came back we stopped at the cenderamata shop where opah bought almost 5 fridge magnet. While waiting, Shuk, Fatihah, Ifwat and me bought some ice cream and rojak buah. Then we decided to visiti the deers and after that we finally decided to go for lunch.

We found out that the aircond, the one at the back of the van we rent was not working and due to this, the two chilren who sat at the back of the van, Tiha & Ifwat were suffering...he he...I heard Ifwat was telling Fatiha that he would want to go straight to sleep once we reached the hotel, he must be damn tired.

We ate at the same place for lunch, Shuk ordered the same ais kacang. We have ordered the same ikan bakar. Fatiha must be really tired that she refused to eat (strange??). Even Ifwat could not finish his share (even stranger?)..he he . After that we went to search for TNB bungalow which is located at Pantai Tengah.

We love the TNB Bungalow. It is located near the sea and is spacious. Once we reached the place and settled down, the adults all decided to take a nap...

At around 4.30 pm I woke up and found that the house was in complete silence. I assume that everybody is asleep (shuk was sleeping at the balcony). About 5.00 o'clock kakak woke up and asked where's Fatiha...I thought she's sleeping with you...jeng jeng, apparently both Fatiha and Ifwat were missing.

I woke Shuk up and asked whether he has seen the children..but no, he was fast asleep himself.

We were a little panic but we are pretty sure they went to the beach and therefore all of us decided to go to the beach (except opah, she was still sleeping). Ifwat and Fatiha were at the beach...there were not so many people so we decided to join them and yes, we had a lot of fun.

We went back to the bungalow and around 7.00 and it was raining...I was so happy to be able to mandi laut and mandi hujan at the same time.

At night for dinner at around 9.00. Since Ifwat and Fatiha requested for chicken chop, we went around for a stall that sell chicken chop.

Apparently after dinner, everybody was tired and decided to retire early for the night except the two children. I have no idea what they were doing but when I woke up for my subuh prayer the next morning, both were sleeping on the sofas...

Everybody went for another round of mandi laut the next morning except for Shuk and I..we continue sleeping. We checked out at around 11 since we booked the 12.30 ferry.

Our plan to do some shopping at the jetty was limited to less than half an hour session since we only reached the jetty at around 11.45. I bought some chocolates for Mek Yah and Shuk bought some for her adik.

Everyone was quite during the ferry ride. I was feeling rather sad since the holiday is going to end....

Happy Birthday Shuk

Yesterday was Shuk's birthday...Shuk turned 45..don't worry, you look very young lah, with moustache and all,...

we did not really celebrate but I have cooked his favourite dish, siakap sweet sour and sup sayur...everything was finished up so I assume my cooking was superb..kih kih kih..

I'll buy your birthday present later ye..Happy Birtday and May Allah bless you always..luy ya

SURPRISE!!!



Huwa Huwa Huwa..After our dinner and shopping session in Langkawi, Shukri has suprised me with a birthday gift..uwaaaa...Shuk bought perfume..according to him it is a lot cheaper in Langkawi..Thank you Shuk...nanti birtday Shuk pun saya beli yang belated gak ye...

Langkawi Trip -1






These pictures were taken at Kuala Kedah Jetty and during our ferry ride. The picture if Ifwat and snakes was taken at the aquarium


This is the first part of my report to Langkawi, I have to break it into parts since I could only write during my free time i.e. when boss is not around? he he no, during lunch time.

We decided to leave for Sungai Petani on Sunday evening after sending Ecah and the girls plus Ziyad to the Bus Station at Medan Gopeng. We met kakak & family at her house and headed to a stall and had dinner. We have only reached Abang's house at around 1 am and we were still tired (from Fizah's wedding and all), we decided to hit the bed almost immediately.

The next morning we started off at around 9a.m. and reached Kuala Kedah approximately one hour after that. We booked the 11.30 ferry and reached Langkawi at 1.30 p.m. We booked a van and went to search for LPPs Training Centre. We checked in, went to refresh ourselves, solat and went out again to get something for lunch..we were so hungry but we should be thankful that Kak Nah has prepared a heavy breakfast (nasi lemak)earlier.

We finally had lunch at 4.00 o'clock and it was among the best meal that I've ever had since I was sooo hungry. We only had some sayur and ikan bakar..but we ate heartily. After that we went to the Aquarium which is located opposite the food stall.

Well, the children (Tiha & Ifwat)really enjoyed themselves. Ifwat had even decided to take picture with the snakes (ulaq sawa, dua ekoq)..when the picture was taken, the adults have all scampered, running everywhere as long as we can get far from the reptilias. HUH..Congratulations Ifwat, you have overcome your fear which is not an easy thing to do.

Since it was already after seven when we finally finished touring the aquarium (almost 40 minutes was spent at the souveniers shop)we decided to go back to the hotel first, bath, rest and solat.

After Maghrib we headed to Kuah town for some shopping. We bought kain batik, t-shirt, chocolate and correlle (kakak beli satu, gue beli satu gak). The van is already full..he he...

After that we went around to find a place to eat. We had dinner and headed back to the hotel to get some rest.

I'm back

Hullo guys..I have been away for more than a week but today I'm back. I was quite surprised (or maybe thankful is more appropriate) when I found out there are very few outstanding tasks for me, but then, I was still very busy and did not have a chance to update my blog. But still, I managed to visit Malena's, Maisarah's, Imaan's and Ainaa's blogs...it seems that all has been updated while I was away, keep up the good work

As for me, today is the first day that I'm driving again to work after 3 years. It was not bad but different..I enjoyed it anyway.

I will try to write something about my trip to Kedah & Langkawi later, also on the outing I had together with Mek Yah and the children...I have to log off for now.

Happy Holidays...

I shall be on leave from tomorrow till 20th March 2009. I shall only be back on 23 March 2009...I am soo happy.

Anas Fikri (Kak Cik's son) has actually responded to my blog and for that I would like to thank him, I really appreciate it. He has also left some comments on Imaan's blog. Anas said, since everybody have their own blog now, it is high time for him to have one himeself and I could not agree more..because Anas, only then we can call ourselves bloggers..hua hua hua

As for me, I do think that having this blog helps me to improve my English..I start to think in English. As much as I could I would try to write in full English because I realise that when we speak, we tend to use BM whenever we are running out of English words he he he,...and as for my BM, I will try to use a proper one..if not perfect.

I have read this one article in the Sun yesterday and I would like to share this statement : 'Language allows a person to formulate thoughts and generate ideas and then put them into action, either in speaking or writing. A person who does not know the language is therefore unable to think clearly because he or she does not have the tools (the words, grammar, sentence structure, etc) to originate thought. Naturally, not knowing the language sufficiently makes a person a poor communicator who will be unable to truly succeed in school, at work, or in personal life'

Hmmm...so, Dear Anas and all my other nieces & nephews..have your own blog, start to formulate your thoughts and practice to put it across.....

It's the month of March...

Hello March...soo many things happened in March...

1 March..the day Yong passed away (al-fatihah)

7 March ...my besday laaa...how was it celebrated?..Shuk wished me Happy Birthday the moment I opened my eyes, thank you Shuk..itu je ke..tak de hadiah?..he he he..better late than never babe, still waiting...

The first SMS I received was from Mak Cik Fizah..so sweet of her..she got to know my birthday from my facebook lah..I got to find her birthday la plak lepas ni.

We planned to have high tea at Concorde Hotel. Shuk has made reservation but better thing happened, he he, Kak Cik & Abang Radhi came to visit us...well, they came, solat zuhur, have some drink and cake and chow...abang radhi was driving an Audi car..if only Kak Cik could drive..

So, since it was too late to go to Concorde Shuk suggested that we go to Serai in Section 4. Unfortunately even Serai was closed for lunch and will only open again at 6.00..sooo...what else..we went to Viccuda laa...we ordered Siakap 3 rasa and sup sayur..since we were hungry and it was almost four o'clock, we finished up everything..la la la..kenyang betul, sampai tak larat pergi TESCO after that.

8 March - Mati-mati I ingat hari ni Birthday Faiz...rupa2 nya esok..anyway, I wished him happy birthday (in advance) and he wished me happy belated birthday..I let him know that I hope he would be able to join us on our trip to Langkawi...he said he'll think about it.

9 March - it was a holiday (maulidurrasul). I went to PKNS and bought a new pair of baju.

Balik Ipoh Lagi....



Hari minggu yang lepas Shuk & I balik kampung lagi...it's Chemor actually, but since I would like to share this picture with all of you, I think Ipoh would be more appropriate...tengok nih..waaa...mercu tanda baru di Highway, ala-ala Hollywood lagi..

Hmmm...before we reached Chemor we decided to stopped at Restoran Ramli and eat first so that mak do not have to cook anything..I had nasi ayam, Shukri had mee rebus and we ordered mihun sup for mak...since we plan to visit kakak in the evening, that would mean I do not have to cook...what a blessing....kih kih kih..

When we reached Chemor Izzat was there...and that would mean tumis petai mesti ada...hish..makan lagi, menyesal giler sebab makan nasi ayam earlier

Anyway, Shukri was having a headache and went straight to sleep, so, when mak and Izzat were having lunch I just could not resist...I ate and ate and ate...isk isk isk..itulah masaalah...

It was quite a hot day and I decided to get some sleep at around 4.00 pm. Shukri woke me up at around 5.00 and asked whether there's anything to eat...actually he smelled it already...there's tumis petai..

After Shukri had his very late lunch, we decided to visit Atikah at her new house. Believe it or not Mak decided not to join us because 'Assalamualaikum Cinta' is on...bagut punye priority..kih kih kih..before we left for Atikah's house, the wind blew very hard and a tree near Asiah's house fall..luckily not on her house..but on the electric line..there's no electricity for the night for them then..

I would also like to highlight on the condition of Asiah's house. They have been living without electricity for around two months..imagine...maybe we could kongsi and help them out...I think we should

hmmm...Atikah's house...well, I must say that their house in Bercham is much better, but I guess they just have to stay in Tg Rambutan till they become a little bit more mature...sabar ye girls..

Oh..they served us blackcurrant tea...sedap tapi a little bit too sweet for me..and all three has put on a little weight..indication of their happines to be together..also an indicator that they are consuming more chocolates..watch out girls, though people cannot see you eat, people could see that you are growing..

After Maghrib we went to visit kakak...she is doing her preparation for Fizah's wedding..it should be a joyous event, something which all of us were waiting for...an event where the whole family will be together...isi bunga telur...makan, gossip, it should be that way...how could we think otherwise...

Anyway...we had discussion on our trip to Langkawi and decided to go to eat the same chicken chop...but only to find that the chicken chop sudah abit looooo....guano mu...oghe date daghi jauh mu bole kato abih...isk....terpakse la makan bende lain

we went back and slept like a log..so sejuk..woke up the next morning, had breakfast and started off early to visit Shuk's sister in Ipoh.

Shuk's sister (Kak Maton) and her hubby (Abang Asmad)are selling roti canai in Ipoh(Kg Temiang)....Abang Asmad is actually a policeman but he will help out Kak Maton during weekends.....to improve family economy laaa...I respect the way they handle their difficult situation..they never complain and infact they are happy people...they strive together, that is the most important thing right?....I hope their life will be better in future.
