The Circle

EAST ➡ WEST ➡ NORTH ➡ SOUTH ➡ WEST.

Hopefully the next is back to EAST for good to round it up.

Amin.

The End of Brangelina

Been scrolling FB newsfeed last night and news about their break-up was all over the wall.

So I guess it's just about time. Finally the most gorgeous couple (or should I say sexy couple) on earth is untying the knot.

I used to write about my favorite Hollywood's A-list couple back in 2010. And guess what? They're all divorced now.

Okay, enough gossiping 😝.

Till later.

That feeling..

I haven't been feeling like this since 10 years ago - it was when I moved to JB. It's so uneasy, so indescribable.

I remember crying in my room the first week after moving to JB.  Been away from home since I was 13 didn't ease the process. 

Last cuti raya my parents and me were reminiscing the story of my registration day in high school back in 1995 (feel free to do the maths, yeah, I know I'm old 😝).

When it was time for my family to go back to Kemaman, my mom cried. But I didn't. Not that I didn't feel sad. I remember perfectly how I felt at that time. I was scared, sad and felt like all of that was so surreal.

I felt like chasing and hopping in the car to go back to Kemaman with them at the moment.

Upon seeing me not shedding any tears, my mom told me that I'm such a strong-hearted person. I'm not sure about that because the thing is, I don't cry in front of others or with others. I always choose to cry alone.

Things got easier when I got into college and uni. It was approximately 10 hours journey of Kemaman - Penang, but Alhamdulillah I managed to be fine.

But today the feeling hit me back. The only difference is that I don't cry anymore. And this time, I'm old enough to understand that life is like this. There'll be a little twist and turn along the way. The only thing we can do is to move on.

The most important thing is to have faith that Allah's plan is the best.

Romantic #3

If your man helps you hang the clothes outside to air-dry them.

Because he understands that you have to put on some decent cloth and tudung if you're to hang the clothes.

The fact that he cares about that.

That's romantic.

Walking on Eggshells

English education from Mak Limah for today..

Idiom: Walking on eggshells.

Meaning: To be overly careful in dealing with a person or situation because they get angry or offended very easily; TO TRY VERY HARD NOT TO UPSET someone or something.

.....

On a personal note, I guess the eggshells have been living with the perks of being an eggshell since forever so they might not be able to realize the pain they have caused to the people around them.

Lucky (or unlucky) them.

Romantic #2

Things that are non-material.

Belikan coklat, bagi bunga, hadiah mahal and whatnot.

It's totally not wrong, it's just less romantic.

Especially if he can afford it, then what's so romantic about it?

PM culture

Makcik is on membebel mode again.

Tak paham sungguh dengan generasi zaman sekarang.

Sedangkan kalau kita nak beli baju online pun, kalau kita duk komen "PM" seller tak layan. (Ok, biasanya seller yang dah established lah kan 😝).. Itu kalau kita nak bagi duit kat orang.  Inikan pulak awak yang nak MINTAK kerja?  I mean, you must really have the nerve suruh orang PM awak untuk bagi kerja kat awak?

Makcik rasa "wow" sangat tengok budaya macam ni. 

Bila government nak bawak masuk foreigner ramai-ramai semua nak menggelupur. And some even talk about job opportunities LOL. Once in a while maybe we should stop complaining -  because in the first place, we did it to ourselves what we thought others did to ourselves.

Make sense?
