..Vindicated..

Another favourite song back in uni time - "Vindicated" by Dashboard Confessional. Best kan lagu ni.




Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in
So mesmerizing, so hypnotizing
I am captivated

[Chorus]
I am Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I'm right
I swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed
But I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

So clear
Like the diamond in your ring
Cut to mirror your intentions
Oversized and overwhelmed
The shine of which has caught my eye
And rendered me so isolated, so motivated
I am certain now that

[Chorus]

So turn
Up the corners of your lips
Part them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment, fall forever
Defense is paper thin
Just one touch and I'd be in
Too deep now to ever swim against the current
So let me slip away [3x]
So let me slip against the current
So let me slip away [4x]

[Chorus]

Slight hope
It dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption...

P/S : Vindicate means 'to prove that something is true or that you were right to do something , especially when other people had a different opinion'

..Count Down..

Mak Abah will be coming back this Thursday :)

Bila tengok berita pasal jemaah haji yang dah balik rasa teruja, tak sabar nak jumpa Mak Abah.

Mak hari tu siap pesan nanti jumpa kalau boleh jangan cium-cium dulu, takut ada jangkitan..

Comel je kan :)

..Me and my messy stuff..

Sometimes i think i am more 'organized' with being messy. Because saya ni jenis yang campak-campak je barang and campur je semua barang without categorizing it. And 'magically', I normally manage to find the thing when it's needed - it'll just take longer time :P

And i think i proved it right when i tried to be neat and organized - letak barang-barang di tempat yang sepatutnya instead of atas sofa, instead of dalam bakul baju post-washing, and now i lost them all.

Dah berbulan-bulan barang-barang yang hilang tak dapat dijumpai. I totally forgot where is the 'tempat sepatutnya'!!!

Adoiyai.. I should have just let my messy things as they are...

..The Break-Up..

These two are splitting up already...Sayangnya, because they look so sweet and 'loving' together. Apalah Tony Parker ni - dapat wife yang cukup gorgeous and funny macam tu pun still nak menggatal dengan orang lain. Tak paham betul...


Well, good look, good personality still don't promise happiness. Then whatelse do? *sigh

Btw, these are my other favourite couples *who are still not splitting up ;P Let's hope they wont la kan?

Chris Martin & Gwyneth Paltrow
Ben Afflect & Jennifer Garner

..The Positive One..

I really admire this America's Next Top Model season 14's runner-up.

Raina.

I think she's pretty, but the more interesting fact about her is her positive attitude.

She didn't cry, didn't crumble over her losing. Instead, she managed to still think positive that although she didn't win the competition, she had learned and gained a lot from it.

And she can still smile and congratulate the winner - so sweet lah this girl...

I hope I can learn to be that positive.

..The Long Weekend..

Tomorrow is Sultan Johor's birthday so it's public holiday.

Tetiba rasa macam nak berjalan so last Friday, I spontaneously proposed to En Hubby to go to Melaka. And he agreed!

Semalam bertolak ke Melaka around 2pm, arrived Melaka at 5pm. Will update pictures in the next next entry. Dan hari ni dah balik JB dah.

Btw, hari Jumaat before cuti someone told me "Cuti lagi. Penatlah cuti" - although a few days before she was so excited counting down the days to the long weekend. Saya yang kehairanan tanyalah "Cuti pun penat?"

Jawapan dia : "Yelah, saya cuti bukannya boleh baring-baring, tidur-tidur...Anak-anak saya bukan reti duduk diam..blabla.."

Ok. First - saya pun tak de baring-baring, tidur-tidur time cuti walaupun saya tak de anak.

Second - Can't you just let your kids play, instead of yelling at everything they do? I think, then only you can 'rest'.

..Number 3..

Last 13 Nov marks my 3rd anniversary of working in V******.

Honestly, the number makes me uncomfortable and nervous. 3 years but still I don't think I've gained much skill. And I'm not even a senior pun T_T


Me in the 'uniform' - in a smock actually. The color is ridiculously green and the sixe is XL. Huh!! And the pretty girl beside me is Mei Tsu (hope I spell her name right), the ex-trainee from UM. This is the 'best' picture of me in uniform so far - but standing beside pretty and stylish girl just highlighting my sloppy-ness. But, tak kesah lah tu, haha.

..Salam Aidiladha..

Me - beraya di JB. Dan saya sangat terharu dengan adik-adik yang pandai membawa diri beraya tanpa Mak Abah di tanahair. I think I do not need to worry about them too much anymore, they are big boys now...

As for me, I tried to make a decent Raya meal *kunun-kunun, but yet, we still ended up eating in McDonald. Rupa-rupanya ramai je yang 'beraya' kat McDonald ni huhuhu.

Nak dijadikan cerita siap masak pagi tadi around 10am (huhu, lewatkan? contrary to my officemates yang petang semalam semua rushing nak masak after balik kerja). Masak nasi kunyit dengan rendang ayam. And owh, that was my first rendang ayam ever :) Tengah siap-siap nak serve untuk dimakan, mangkuk yang saya dah isi nasi kunyit tu tiba-tiba pecah - by itself. Tak pasal-pasal kang ada yang makan serbuk kaca, makanya, terpaksa buang. Arggh..Nak masak lagi sekali makan masa - 2 kali kukus tuh...Perut dah lapar, so the fastest choice is McDonald.

Btw, presenting my first Rendang Ayam (tak dapat carik daun kunyit, letak daun limau purut saja). Mintak resepi from my aunt di malam raya.



SALAM AIDILADHA TO ALL MUSLIMS.

..Recipe Card Box..

I don't cook that much, and in fact my One Week One Recipe project sudah mula terbengkalai.

But anyway, I just love the idea of having a Recipe Card Box, you know, the one like Bree, Katherine and Angie in Desperate Housewives have. Nampak macam cool je flipping over cards when searching for recipe.


Besides, recipe collection will be more organized because normally, everytime I call my mother for a recipe, I would just scribble the ingredients on any paper I can find at that moment and of course, lepas tu hilang.


Or even if I write it down in my organizer, every new year when the organizer needs to be changed then the problem occurs again.


So I went to Yahoo and found a few examples:
I love this one the most:



I think I need to find one. Maybe that is another way to motivate myself to cook.

..Welcoming Airiss Soffeya..

UPDATE : CORRECT SPELLING - AIRIS SOFFEA

Arggh, entri tertunda lagi...

This is Buyan's second daughter. This lil' angel was born on 31st October. And this pic was taken when she was almost 2 hours young. *I was among the earliest ones to see her..bangga2. And she looked exactly like her sister, Aisya.


Dear Soffeya (or Soyya as per Aisya calls her),

Welcome to the family. Can't wait to see you grow up ad team up with your sis, being cheeky and adorable together. Really can't wait :)

You also can call me "Kakak" like your sister calls me - I won't mind heheheh.

And you should know one thing, you're the reason my fever got 'kebah' that day. Yup, the moment I heard about your birth, suddenly my fever all went away :)

Right now, I can't wait to see you this 2nd Dec.

And to Buyan, walaupun berpantang sendiri, jangan mengelat-ngelat yer :P Takecare dear...

..Muslimah Salon..

I think nowadays it's hard to find a salon to suit the need of not showing-off our hair to the mahram. Normally hair saloons (even those that owned by Muslim) are unisex saloon and see-through types where people from outside can see us.

But luckily here in Taman Universiti, Skudai, there's one muslimah salon which is solely for woman and 'closed' enough not to be seen from outside. Bila nak masuk kena tekan buzzer kat luar tu then only the staff will open the door for you.


The hairstylists there are skillful, too jadi memang puas hati datang sini. And they also have one more branch in Bandar Baru Uda.

The addresses:

No 116-01, Jalan Pendidikan 7,
Taman Universiti, Skudai

&

No 29, Jalan padi Emas 3/1,
Bandar Baru Uda, JB

..Inspira..

Our favorite pastime activity during weekend - car hunting (belinya tak jugak hehehe)

Today we went to Proton to check out on the new Lancer-look-alike Proton Inspira. I don't really know about cars, so let's just take a look at the pictures :)

Btw, this is the 1.8 model. We're looking foward to come again when the 2.o model is available in the show room and for a test-drive.

..Love The Way You Lie Part II..

First time dengar semalam masa balik kerja. Seriously, I love this duo.

Best gila! The lyric is crazy but I love it!
Like "You'll always be my hero, even tho you lost your mind"? Haha.

Enjoy the song :) And owh, click to watch the video clipof the so-called part I ..

For this part II, can't find the official video clip...




On the first page of our story, the future seems so bright.
And this thing turned out so evil, I don’t know why I’m still surprised.
Even angels have their wicked schemes and you take death to new extremes.
But you’ll always be my hero, even though you lost your mind.

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn,
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts.
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry,
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie.
I love the way you lie.

Now this gravel in our voices, glass is shattered from the fight.
In this tug of war, you’ll always win, even when I’m right.
Cause you feed me fables from your hand,
With violet words and empty threats and it’s sick that all these battles are what keeps me satisfied.

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn,
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts.
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry,
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie.
Ohhh, I love the way you lie.

So maybe I’m a masochist
I try to run but I don’t wanna ever leave.
Til the walls are goin’ up in smoke with all our memories.

[Eminem]
This morning, you wake, a sunray hits your face
smeared makeup as we lay in the wake of destruction
hush baby, speak softly, tell me I’ll be sorry that you
pushed me into the coffee table last night so I can push you off me
try and touch me so I can scream at you not to touch me
run out the room and I’ll follow you like a lost puppy
baby, without you, I’m nothing, I’m so lost, hug me
then tell me how ugly I am, but that you’ll always love me
then after that, shove me, in the aftermath of the
destructive path that we’re on, two psychopaths but we
know that no matter how many knives we put in each other’s backs
that we’ll have each other’s backs, ’cause we’re that lucky
together, we move mountains, let’s not make mountains out of molehills,
you hit me twice, yeah, but who’s countin’
I may have hit you three times, I’m startin’ to lose count
but together, we’ll live forever, we found the youth fountain
our love is crazy, we’re nuts, but I refused counselin’
this house is too huge, if you move out I’ll burn all two thousand
square feet of it to the ground, ain’t shit you can do about it
with you I’m in my f–kin’ mind, without you, I’m out it

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn,
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts.
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry,
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie.
Ohhh, I love the way you lie.
I love the way you lie.

..Perihal Bookmark..

Bila semua page di-marked as "Bookmark This Page" last-last jadi berjela-jela dah list itu.

Nak search favourite website kat situ pun dah tak pantas lagi, especially bila tak berapa nak ingat title website.

Last-last kena search kat Google jugak. Adehla.

..A Night Without Armor..



This was released long time ago back in 1998.

Tetibe teringat balik. Macam mana nak cari buku ni. Help...

..Arabic and Syrian Cuisine..

Ada satu tempat makan baru buka kat Taman U, just opposite Ani Sup Utara for Arabic and Syrian Cuisine - Bilal Alsham



Tapi nampak restoran tu macam tak berapa nak ramai orang, mungkin orang tak berapa perasan kewujudan dia.

We went there masa saya tengah demam so I didn't really enjoy the food.

Here was what we had:

Chicken Kebab


Dah lupa nama nasi ni, tapi bagi yang dah biasa makan nasi beriani akan rasa nasi ni serba kekurangan rasa:
This one tasted more like Begedil, with potato and beef:

Fruit cocktail:

.Ibu Mertuaku.

Last 2 weeks I started to have fever. Isnin start demam. Selasa MC. Rabu & Khamis pergi kerja walaupun tak berapa nak kebah. Khamis macam makin teruk. Masa tu En Hubby dah beli tiket bas balik kampung untuk interview for Friday. (*pelik kan kilang kat Terengganu kerja hari Jumaat?)

Mula-mula saya memang plan tak nak ikut sebab sayangkan annual leave. Tapi hari Khamis tu bila demam tak baik-baik, saya memang nak ambik MC la Jumaat tu - nak rest sampai betul-betul baik. Bila pikir-pikir dengan keadaan lembik macam tu - tak berani nak tinggal sorang-sorang kat JB. Maka saya suggest En Hubby jual balik tiket bas dan balik ngan kereta
sebab saya nak ikut balik. Mengade betul kata En Hubby :P

Sebenarnya nak cerita pasal Ibu Mertuaku kan..lari topik pulak.

Sepanjang dekat kampung, my MIL jaga saya dengan baik sangat. Saya memang tak tolong masak langsung pun - my MIL suruh saya berehat je.

Ada sekali tu, saya batuk teruk tak berhenti-henti, rasa macam nak terkeluar isi perut dah, then my MIL ketuk pintu bilik kata nak tolong sapu Vicks kat belakang dan urut-urut.

Pastu pagi-pagi hidung saya berdarah, my MIL pergi petik daun pokok bunga raya. Dia rendam daun tu dalam air dan mandikan kepala saya dengan air rendaman daun bunga raya tu.

Mula-mula saya nak basahkan sendiri kepala, tapi dia kata "Biar mak buat, kalau buat sendiri nanti mesti ngelat.."

Terharu sangat saya. Memang dia jaga saya macam jaga anak sendiri..sob sob.

Terima kasih Mak :)

..Johor Food One Stop Centre..

Kalau datang Johor dan tak cukup masa nak try makanan-makanan Johor, maka datanglah ke sini:


Lokasi : Belakang Stesen Bas Larkin, bersebelahan Plaza Larkin.

Semua makanan Johor yang famous ada kat sini - mee bandung, mee rebus, asam pedas, soto, nasi beriani etc etc

We had breakfast once here and tried Kacang Pool - cicah roti dalam kuah - sedap, kuah dia rasa macam sardin.

And also Mee Rebus (kalau kat area Selangor mee macam ni dipanggil Mi Jawa).
Yang ni Mee Rebus Special - ada Udang celup tepung.

I think this is the best teh tarik ever. Teringat-ingat sampai sekarang.

..Entri Tertunda : Mak Abah's Departure for Haji..Part II

Ok, sambungan.





Aisya & Tok Abah

Friendly Aisya pergi tegur and salam-salam kawan baru :)

Of course there were teary moments which were successfully captured by the paparazzis tapi tak nak letak gambar-gambar itu.

Add Image



Mak Abah on the big screen.



Later that evening, I went to the airport (with En Hubby, MIL, SILs and BIL) again when Mak Abah informed that there were 'rumors' the flight will depart at 640 pm, which was not. Sapela yang buat rumors tu ek..

Ramai jugak orang yang nak tengok flight berlepas ni hehehe.


That was my hand, waving at the plane :(

The plane took off at 8pm.

Mak called the day after at 630am Malaysia time to inform they had safely arrived in Jeddah and will be taking bus afterwards to Madinah.

At this present moment, Mak Abah already in Mekah. We all miss our parents so much. Last Friday I called Mak, she was having flu. Really hope Mak will get well soon.

Mak Abah will be coming back on this 2th of December. Until then, let's pray Mak Abah diberikan kesihatan yang baik dan dipermudahkan semua urusan.

..Entri Tertunda : Mak Abah's Departure for Haji..Part I

First of all, I really appreciate if anyone's reading this doakan Mak Abah diberikan kesihatan yang baik sepanjang menunaikan ibadah haji dan dipermudahkan segala urusan di sana dan selamat pulang nanti.

This entry contains a lot of pictures and a few captions. The actual date was 16th October'10 but as usual, i had to take about 2 weeks later to update things

Bertolak dari Kemaman ke Kuala Terengganu at about 7am.


Azan



Singgah dulu rumah nenek di Kuala Terengganu. Pukul 2pm, bertolak dari rumah nenek ke airport.

Rombongan ke airport sebanyak 5 kereta. Ni dekat Masjid Seberang Takir solat Zohor. (Owh, actually it was 6 cars- but my family-in-law balik solat kat rumah since rumah dekat-dekat area sini)

At Kuala Terengganu Airport:

Saya sebak sangat bila tengok Abah dukung and cium-cium Aisya because I know he'll surely miss Aisya so much...



Hmm..Aisya tak senyum..

Mak baru siap registration.





My family-in-laws..

Aisya sudah moody...

En Hubby and my FIL


Another touching moment - Tok Ma peluk Aisya.

Tengokla Mak Buyung yang dah 9 months masa tu...Tak nampak macam sarat pun :P

Rombongan kami..

Ery, Pali and Pami with Mak & Abah's luggage

This kid just have to do what every adults do - including angkat beg...

And tolak troli despite her height

*we are so lucky to have a few paparazzis in our family to successfully photograph the moments.



To be continued....
