..Last Working Day for 2011::

I don't really know how to summarize my 2011 in terms of career path. 

But, anyway, for my office calendar, I always choose the one with motivational words.

So here goes some thoughts to end the year and to begin a new one.

My Dec'12 motivational words:

''You have to learn the rules of the game.  And then you have to play better than anyone else''

And Jan'12 says:

''It takes struggle, a goal and enthusiasm to make a winner''.

That's all as a wrap, I guess.

..Lada Hitam..

Malam tadi pergi beli groceries kat Jusco. 

Dekat bahagian rempah-rempah tu, berlakulah conversation ni:


Hubby:Cari apa tu?

Me : Lada hitam..

Hubby: Hmm..kenal ke lada hitam tu yang mana satu?


Argghh...mentang-mentanglah hari tu tengok Masterchef yang teka bahan tu dia tahu lagi banyak dari I..huhu.

..A Cry for Help?..

I understand some people are just too proud to be taking any form of help from others, despite the needs.

I, on the other hand, am not a persuasive person.

Is there a way to help others without making them feel insulted?

..Problem..

My superior always ask me, ''Do you have any problem?''.  ALWAYS. 

Yes, my problem is that I'm not inspired.  I am so de-motivated.

I wish I can just tell him that.  But then again, I can't stand the almost-2-hours 'lecture' over the phonee.

..Getting Emo or Being Dramatic?..

After one week having my parents around, memang terasa 'sebu' sangat bila tinggal sorang-sorang kat rumah petang tadi.

Bukan kena tinggal lama pun, lebih kurang sejam lebih je pun. En Hubby terpaksa masuk kilang pukul 5pm tadi to settle whatever problems kat production line tu.

Actually, I don't have problem with his work routine at all. I understand his work well tapi tak tahu sebab apa petang tadi emo semacam huhuhu.

Lebih kurang pukul 6 lebih - bila En hubby call, tiba-tiba sebak dan menyebabkan dia agak panik.

"Okay, saya balik sekarang. Malam ni kita gi makan Subway yer?"

Ngeee................ *you know I'm not that 'critical' when you can cheer me up with food :p

Owh, by the way, about Subway - unfortunately, bila dah sampai Sutera Mall tadi, Subway dah tutup sebab 'kehabisan roti'.. Kempunan!

..Masterchef..

I just started watching the beginning episodes of US Masterchef Season 2. Last time it's aired, I I only got to watch it at Top 8 episode. *Big thanks to the re-run :)

What I love about Masterchef US is the inspiration from most of the contestants. The guts to pursuit their real dream - quitting whatever they're doing - just believing that cooking is their passion. That is true inspiration to me.

And there's one contestant who cooks for his sick wife, EVERYDAY, for 16 years - seriously, I cried watching that couple. They are so damn sweet. *apa hal tengok Masterchef pun nangis nih?
I quote him:

"My wife was down to 78lbs at 35 years old. I had to basically force-feed her. She wouldn't eat if it didn't taste good. So I have to learn to cook food that tastes good"

Huhuhu, dahlah ada usaha pergi belajar masak, masak pulak tiap-tiap hari for his wife, still stick around for his sick wife - for 16 years?! Hundreds 'awww'..

Malaysia version? I don't know.... I mean, Maggi? Seriously?

Inspiration-wise? I don't get that at all. But I still watch it, though, because I just love food (*to be precise, EAT food, not COOK).

..Friendster..

Tiba-tiba teringat that I have a Friendster account and wondering whatever happens to that, and decided to delete it.

And of course, having problem recalling the password, had to request for a new one, blabla..

Terkelip-kelip jugaklah tengok Friendster sekarang, it's so colorful with avatar-lah, games feature and whatnot.

Btw, officially I have deactivated the account.

..Puss In Boots..

The truth is, I was quite disappointed. It's not as entertaining as I expected.

The first half an hour dah rasa macam ''Macam tak best jek. Tak kelakar mana pun''

I just don't love the storyline. En Hubby felt the same way, too.

So I keep on telling him afterwards, ''Rugi jek tengok cite ni. Baik tengok Twilight'' hehehe, sempat lagi berpolitik.

However, I still love the all eye-thing Puss did to melt people's heart.

And to compare with the last animation movie we watched, The Smurf, this one is definitely better.

..Twilight:Breaking Dawn vs Puss In Boots..

So which one wins?

Of course the Puss In Boots -since this is the favourite genre En Hubby and I have in common.

Too bad he does not fancy modern vampire movies :( *kalau movie 'vampire-van helsing' yang lama tu tengok 10 kali pun tak pe, ish ish..

But I will try to make En Hubby want to watch it *nak tengok Bella and Edward kahwin....

So we'll have a movie-date tonight :)

..Diskusi Ibu-ibu..

I got stucked in the middle of moms' discussion regarding their kids' academical achievement.

Si ibu A cakap anak dia top in class..
Si ibu B tak nak kalah, terus bagi tau anak dia score A untuk semua subjek..
Dan ada si ibu C siap hantar anak pergi tuisyen, yang menurut ibu B, kalau dia ada duit lebih pun akan dihantar jugak ke tuisyen.
Dan juga cerita anak-anak itu dijanjikan dengan hadiah yang macam-macam kalau score in their exam......

Saya yang tak ada naluri keibuaan ni terasa macam kelakar. *Hahaha, nak gelak dulu...

Sebabnya, yang tengah dibincangkan itu adalah kanak-kanak tadika. Sungguh competitive dan hopeful dan bersungguh-sungguh ibu-ibu ini nak anak mereka belajar di tadika seolah-olah macam dah nak ambik SPM.

Deep in my heart, I feel sorry for the kids. Patutke umur 5, 6 tahun tu dah dipaksa belajar, siap tuisyen segala? I really don't understand why is it such a big deal for the kindergarten kids to achieve 'good grade' what-so-ever?

But then again, that's just my opinion. Like I said - I don't have that motherly instinct yet.

Ok, enough being mad at blogger-droid. Hehe.

Actually I posted a pic of my first sup ekor attempt. Together with the sambal kicap which was also a first attempt.

Tapi sup ekor tu saya pakai resepi yang biasa buat sup tulang je pun. Ni pun campur sekali dengan tulang, sebab ekor dapat sikit je masa korban hari tu :p

..The Garbage Issue..

When I 'promoted' my friends to use reusable bag to shop, one response I got was - "Nanti tak ada plastic bag nak buat buang sampah"

Well, I don't really have the solution - but I think, instead of we giving excuses NOT to use reusable green bags, why don't we find a way of how to reduce our daily waste, right?

Besides, it kinda scary to read everywhere about how the world now is not enough for 7billion people -I don't think we could afford any space for dumping site, so it's really time to not be wasteful.

..Salam Aidiladha..

Dah malam baru nak wish hehehe..

Btw, semalam and hari ni belajar buat laksa johor dan Alhamdulillah, berjaya :)

But of course lah tak buat sorang-sorang. Kat Kemaman, team laksa Johor sampai 4 orang. Kat Kuala terengganu, team laksa adalah 3 orang. Lebih kurang 3 jam jugak preparation+cooking time. Nak sediakan bahan-bahan tumis lagi, tumbuk udang kering + ikan kering, buat sambal belacan lagi, blend ikan dan udang lagi huhu. Kalau sorang-sorang rasanya tak ada kekuatan kot saya nak buat :p

Lepas tu, Masterchef malam ni Uji Rasa laksa Johor pulak tu, bolehlah berlagak konon-konon tahu ingredients tu *padahal bawanh merah dengan bawang besar pub tak reti nak beza rasa dia macam mana

Gini lah rupa laksa Johor *courtesy of Uncle Google.

..Taking Chances..

''More often in life, we end up regretting the chances in life that we had, but didn't take them; than those chances that we took and wished we hadn't''

I have these few regrets in life that are still with me up until now.  All those chances that I let it slipped away still sometimes bugging me. 

I wish I had more guts and courage back then.

And I wish someday I can live with the decision of not taking them :(

..Romantic #2..

En Hubby called just now - to tell me that today's date is such a beautiful date 1/11/11. 


In fact, he'd always call everytime he sees or acknowledges something interesting or extra-ordinary on his way to work/home. 


Some of my friends heran tengok, ''rajinnya husband ko call.  dah kahwin and dah duduk sekali pun masih call2'' huhu.


Tapi bukanlah bargayut lama-lama pun.  Setiap kali call tak sampai seminit pun. 


Anyway, I find it very romantic and sweet that he thinks of me everytime he sees new and interesting things :)

..2-1..

Huwaa...sedih jugak altho' I didn't really watch last night walaupun memang duduk depan TV *I found my newly-bought magazines were much more inviting than the game.

Tapi jeling jugaklah time Terengganu scored the first goal. Excited jugak but that time, it was too early to celebrate kan - baru minit ke-58 je. And bila N9 scored, makinlah malas nak tengok. Bila dengar second goal from N9, arggghh, frustrated.

Btw, hari ni baru terhegeh-hegeh nak tengok balik detik-detik gol tu, especially yang gol pertama N9 tu. Memang - "Haa?!"

Adoiyai...

Ada yang kutuk-kutuk Terengganu's goalkeeper kat Facebook, but I'm sure he did all his best. No one on his right mind would do that on purpose kot? *mari menyedapkan hati.

Kalah menang adat pertandingan.

However, one interesting info for me is that - the victory goal for N9 was contributed by Terengganu-born player - Hai-O, so, ok lah kan hahahha..

..Nothing Happens..

Suatu pagi yang malas, bila si isteri mengajak si suami menikmati sarapan pagi di luar, si suami cakap nak tengok berita pagi dulu.

Maka isteri yang kelaparan berkata "Tak yahlah tengok berita, tak de apa yang berlaku kot"

Ngeh3x..

Berita pun bermula dengan headline "Jangan terlalu memberi harapan kepada pakatan rakyat...blablabla.."

"See, I told you - nothing happens" kata si isteri.

Hahaha.

..Demam Piala Malaysia..

Well, not really.

But when it comes to Terengganu be in final game, yes, I'm all fevered :p

I hoped T-Team made it to final too so that I don't have to have to watch the final game because it doesn't really matter then which team wins since they're both Terengganu team. Ngeh3x...

But of course, it won't be interesting, right?

Btw, peteh Terengganu peteh!!

..Ayat-ayat Cinta..

Okay, the title is the total opposite to the content.

Nowadays, from facebook to face-to-face daily conversations, ayat-ayat ni makin banyak orang guna - have you noticed?

"Ade aku kesah??"

and

"Kau ade?!"


I don't know about you - but to me, they are annoying! Makes me wonder whoever come out with these in the first place?

..Being Perfect..

When I was 10 - 12 years old, my definition of being perfect was - cantik, bijak and anak orang kaya. Lame? Haha. You bet. And there were a few girls in school whom I considered as perfect back then. *And of course I envied them.

When I was in high school, the definition was basically still the same. Haha. And there was this one senior of mine who I think defined the word perfect - she's pretty, super-smart, good in sport, was in debate team, play music instrument, was a prefect some more, very well-mannered...Well, such an all-rounder.

And I couldn't envy her. I could never never be that. Not even close *sigh.

But now as an adult - my definition of being perfect is just "being happy for who you are and what you have". That's all it takes to feel perfect for me.

Well, of course I haven't gotten there yet, I mean, I still have all these (ridiculous) dissatisfaction about myself and my life, but I'm trying my best to be 'perfect'.

Insya Allah.

First of all, getting tired already to put up with the slow Internet connection and yet not able to upgrade due to the contract. Argghhhhh.........

Huh!

Anyway, I have this problem.

When I respond / react to some rude or conceited remarks with such politeness, most of 'other' people tend to disapprove me *as if I need their approval??!!

And most of them will tell this to me: "Kau ni baik sangatlah. Kalau aku, aku sound je balik..blablabla"

Why is it a problem to them that I am totally not like that. That's just not how I am built <--pinjam ayat Dorothy from Jerry Maguire movie.

Period.

..Re-visiting Childhood Memory..

When I was 12, I was so in love with these 2 comics. I borrowed from library (the one near to Padang Astaka) but never got the chance to read the endings. They were Japanese comics but the ones I read was in Bahasa Indonesia's translation.

Hmm, actually I think there were 3 comics, but I can't recall the other one.



Now, anyone know where can i find the complete series?

It's true, indeed. Patience does pay off.

..Reality Vs Fiction..

Sometimes it does make me sick - watching typical drama Melayu. Bila orang-orang jahat ditimpa kesusahan/musibah, terus mereka-mereka itu insaf dan menyesali perbuatan jahat mereka.

Do you know things just don't work out like that in real world?

Sometimes I watch people (in reality) just do bad things to other people, without feeling any bit of guilt. And then, when bad things continuously happen to them, they just go on blaming everything and everyone else, instead of themselves. And even blame the fate - "Kenapalah nasib aku selalu susah macam ni?"

At one point, I just don't feel sorry for these people anymore. I feel like shouting at their face "HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF KARMA?!!"

But still, I know, who am I to judge people *sigh.

I really hope Allah will always guide me. From the ignorance of my own mistake.

..Run..

I actually first listened to Leona Lewis cover version but never really liked it.

Until I watched Charlie Saint Cloud movie recently, which featuring this song by the originator band, Snow Patrol - I think this song is awesome!!!






"Run"

I'll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You've been the only thing that's right
In all I've done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we'll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say

Slower slower
We don't have time for that
All I want's to find an easy way
To get out of our little heads

Hush Hush my dear
We're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days
Making up for all this mess

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

..Romantic #1..

Caution: ini entri syok sendiri. Not recommendable for people with low romantic tolerance??


Masa buat makan-makan last Syawal, ada a few incident where En Hubby's friends mistakenly guessed his age as 30-something.

Which reminds me of masa mula-mula bercinta dulu. Masa my friends back in USM met him, semua cakap muka dia matured sangat, tak macam umur 22. So I told him that. I don't really remember his exact words tapi lebih kurang macam nilah maksud dia - ''Okaylah tu, sebab saya akan ditemukan dengan awak''

I was so touched by his thought. He looked at it as a good thing - to balance my older age.

Sweet tak... hahaha. *sengal*

Yes, it's all up to me.

I can choose to whine and go on like this all my life:

"Why do I have to struggle for this while others have it naturally?"

Or I can choose to tell this to myself, instead:

"I'm starting with the simplest and working my way to the scariest".

..Another Wonderful Lips Product..


First of all, thanks a lot to my sis for giving me this efficient product as one of my last birthday's present.

I did mention here that it was quite problematic for me to wear lipstick/lip gloss because after 10 minutes applied, the lipstick/lip gloss layer will dry out and and become flaky.

With this Lips & Cheek Stain from Bodyshop, I can wear lipstick / lip gloss with no worries now :) *ewah, ni betul-betul macam iklan ni :p

Just apply this before lipstick and lip gloss

And it works as a blusher, too!

..Nasi Kandaq?..

This is weird. And gedik jugak.

I've spent almost 5 and a 1/2 years in Penang, but during those times, I had never tried Nasi kandar. Not even once. Not sure why, but I just didn't feel like trying. Maybe I didn't really like the idea of curry food.

But this year, around May, masa ikut En Hubby training kat PJ, ada ternampak satu kedai Nasi Kandar Pelita, hati saya melonjak-lonjak nak cuba.

Nasib baik En Hubby layan kan aje bini nya ni.

Sotong:


*Yang ni En Hubby punya nasi, dia tak request kuah campur-campur tuh..Rugi, rugi :P
Ini saya punya :)


Turned out - "Menyesalnya dulu duk Penang tak pernah try...."

Hmmm.

..Macaron..

Since the first time I saw the pictures on internet, I couldn't resist the temptation to try this:

*sorry for the blurry pics, taken via handphone

So since yesterday ada buat makan-makan sikit, early of last week I pun propose lah kat En Hubby - nak beli untuk tetamu-tetamu (padahal tuan rumah ni yang nak sangat rasa). Harga dia -mak aihh, tapi nak rasa punya pasal order jugaklah 50 bijik. I google "Macaron in JB" maka terjumpa blog ini.

Saya order dua flavor - cheese and blueberry in mix colors, size lebih kurang syiling 50 sen. Rasa dia manis, which I like :) between cheese and blueberry, I prefer cheese flavor. For 50 pcs tu, harga die RM75.

Tapi bila susun macam ni, almost everybody ingat perhiasan haha.

Thanks to En Hubby yang sanggup layan saya pergi ambik sampai ke Permas sinun.

Nanti nak order lagilah, but En hubby dah bagi cabaran untuk saya buat sendiri. Erk?? Tak mampu nak menyahut cabaran itu rasanya....

..Tips Murah Rezeki..

Got this useful tips this morning from Ikim.fm on the way to work - tips supaya Allah murahkan rezeki kita.

1. Bangun awal sebelum subuh
2. Jangan tinggal solat 5 waktu
3. Buat baik pada ibubapa - sentiasa memberi dan jangan berkira dengan ibubapa
4. Zakat dan sedekah

....and then I got distracted due to sudden traffic jam on the road - ada accident pulak kat depan so I wasn't focusing to the radio anymore, so I'm not sure there's a no.5.

So if anyone ada terdengar jugak, please share ye :)

All in all, the key point is - the more we give, the more Allah will give to us. Insya Allah.

..Ramadhan Tahun Ini..

I know, I know. It's Syawal already.

But still, I must 'show-off' my GRAND iftar ;P

Of course not as in the-5-star-dining-place but 5-star-beloved-people :P. Since this year's raya turn goes to En hubby's home, maka saya dapat kelebihan 2 hari buka puasa kat rumah famili saya hehe. Tapi satu hari je pun ambik gambar.



Yang ni masa berbuka umah family-in-law:
And as a summary, the only better-than-last-year improvement thing to me is - berjaya mengawal nafsu makan. Kalau pergi bazar, saya cuma aim for main meal (which is mostly Nasi Ayam Penyet) SAHAJA dan tidak mengarut nak beli tu, nak beli ni.

Owh, one more thing, saya berjaya bangun dan sediakan meal for every sahur (walaupun 'sediakan sahur' tu mostly adalah bermaksud panaskan meal yang disediakan terlebih dahulu pada malamnya).


But to be honest, Ramadhan this year to me - saya sangat terkilan sebab tak begitu manfaatkan bulan ni sebaiknya. Semoga bertemu lagi tahun depan... Insya Allah.

Tapi agak tak reti nak packing untuk cuti panjang (well, 9days kira panjang lah kan, cuti kahwin dulu pun ambik tak sampai seminggu), rasa macam semua benda nak bawak balik je ish ish. So far, two bags are loaded, banyak lagi tak packing ni, rasanya nak kena tambah bagasi lagi ni.

Balik kampung nanti for sure dengar ayat ni ''Macam nak balik setahun'', haha, well, dah lali dah. Memang kami jenis kalau balik 3 hari pun bawak barang macam nak balik sebulan, apatah lagi 9 hari?

So officially mode balik kampung is ON. Macam manalah nak 'pura-pura' kerja esok ni....

..When I have nothing to write but still want to write..

There's so much I wanted to write about, but every time I hit the keyboard, I keep on deleting every first word I type.

I don't want to write negative thoughts although that's mostly what I feel at this moment. There are two incidents today - one pissed me off and one saddened me. I don't handle my emotion well lately. I guess I'm running out of wisdom words to cheer myself up. Eh, okay, enough about that already. *kata tak nak tulis tapi tulis jugak ish ish

I have one more baju raya which is still with tailor, which she promised me to get it done by this week. Tolonglah siap, kalau tak, makin celaru lah saya.

On top of all that, sebenarnya tak sabar nak balik kampung. Cuti raya dah approved! *ok, bab ni memang boleh senyum sampai telinga :)

My sister e-mailed me her doter's latest picture today - how I really miss the adorable kiddos. Can't wait to 'buli' my niece *or the correct phase is actually 'dibuli' by her hehehe.

And this year, I don't really eager to listen to raya songs.

..Ayam Organik..


Now that we have the choice, let's go for the healthier choice.

Saya memang seboleh-bolehnya beli ayam kat HPA for their organic chicken. But I guess the demand exceeds the supply, so most of the times, the chicken is out of stock. Frust jugak, because I totally support HPA products. And bila tak de, terpaksa jugaklah beli ayam tak organik kt pasar.

Harga:
*Harga pengedar tu maksudnya harga untuk member. Saya tak jadi member pun, tapi saya guna member number ayah saya je hehehe

Copied from HPA website:

"Ayam organik yang diternak sendiri oleh HPA ini dijamin bebas daripada vaksin kerana menggunakan herba sebagai makanannya seperti daun mambu, kunyit dan Tongkat Ali. Tanpa enzim tumbesaran, tanpa vaksin dan di sembelih mengikut tatacara syariah"

"Ayam organik atau dipanggil ayam sihat kerana pemakanannya datang dari sumber yang bersih seperti temukut, jagung, serbuk ikan dan sebagainya. Ia benar-benar bebas daripada sebarang makanan yang bercampur dengan bahan kimia. Ayam organik HPA turut diberi makan daun mambu yang cukup baik untuk kesihatan"

Sejak bulan puasa ni, inilah nasi favourite. Kalau pergi bazar ramadhan, memang tak cari nasik lain lah. Padahal sebelum ni tak heran pun dengan nasi ni.

First of all, I'm lucky that my birthday falls on this holy Ramadhan which hopefully all the wishes and prayers from dearest family and friends will come true. Amin.

Although it's scary to become 30 soon, but I don't want to be the woman in denial of this age thingy. So, okay - I'm 29 years old this year :)

And at this age, I'm very thankful that I've achieved some of my life target before 30, so I can say I'm doing fine. Well, generally.

''I don't fear old age. I only fear being at old age and not accomplishing anything''

..Geng Mengaji..

Time sahur biasa kitorang akan tengok cerita ni @Astro Prima. Sangat kelakar.


Masa awal-awal puasa dulu, saya ada gak terfikir kenapa sekarang bulan puasa tak de cerita macam Diari Ramadhan Rafiq yang tayang kat TV3 dulu tu? Walaupun saya tak follow sangat cerita tu, tapi cerita budak-budak macam tu adalah sangat entertaining walaupun tengok sekali-sekala.

Bila ada cerita Geng Mengaji ni, memang terhibur waktu-waktu sahurku :)

..Selamat Berbuka..

Boring sebenarnya tunggu nak berbuka depan makanan macam ni....

Btw, Alhamdulillah atas rezeki hari ini :)

..Nilai Seringgit..

Semalam pergi bazar ramadhan Kampung Melayu Majidee. Both of En hubby and me were so excited to be able to find our favourite nasi and kuih. En hubby dengan nasi tomatonya and me with cream puff - yang memang tak dapat nak jumpa kat bazar Taman U.

Tapi dekat bazar Kg.Melayu ni, duit seringgit dah kurang nilai dia. Kuih semua jual RM2 for 5pcs, dah tak de yang RM1 for 3 pcs.

Rindu nak pergi bazar kat Kemaman. Kalau kat Kemaman, saya memang rambang mata pilih juadah berbuka sebab boleh dikatakan semua makanan yang dijual tu pun saya suka. Jadi, hikmah duduk JB ni: jimat sikitlah masa belanja kat bazar sebab kuih kat muih kat sini tak berapa kena dengan selera maka tidaklah rambang mata.


My favourite cream puff (pic is googled):

..Cubaan Silhoutte..

Satu pagi di Kampung Pasir Tumbuh:

..Good or Bad?..

A lot of times I feel I don't 'blend' well with others because I don't have the anger and the hatred. And because I have too much emphaty.

Makes me wonder sometimes, is it a bad thing? :(

..Ketam Masak Cili dengan Telur..

Last Friday went to Kampung Pendas, PTP with En Hubby and two BILs. This time we ordered crab - Masak Cili.

Image is google-ed

And I found the recipe - simple saja rupanya, boleh cuba nih untuk berbuka *tapi bukan hari ni lah kot :)

1. Tumbuk bawang merah, bawang putih dan halia. Tumiskan.
2. Masukkan sos cili dan air.
3. Bila mendidih, masukkan ketam. Biar mendidih lama sikit.
4. Masukkan telur yang dah dipukul terlebih dahulu.
5. Macam biasa - garam, gula dan serbuk perasa sesuka hati.
6. Siap!

..Doa Ramadhan..

"Ya Allah, jadikanlah puasaku, puasa orang yang benar-benar berpuasa. Dan ibadah malamku, ibadah orang yang benar-benar mengerjakan ibadah. Dan jagalah aku dari tidurnya orang yang lalai. Hapuskanlah dosaku wahai Tuhan sekalian alam. Dan ampunilah aku wahai Tuhan Maha Pengampun daripada segala dosa"

Untuk semua muslimin dan muslimat:

'SELAMAT MENGHAYATI KEINDAHAN BULAN RAMADHAN'

..Cedera Lagi..

Got hurt again yesterday.

Boleh tak pakcik taxi yang langggar tu kata ''Awak dah nampak saya nak reverse, awak berhentilah'' huhuhu. Pakcik, I may be soft, not yelling or anything, but I am so not stupid. Saya jawab je ''Saya memang tak nampak pakcik nak reverse, saya tak pernah tengok pun ada kereta nak reverse ke tak kalau saya kat jalan utama''

Kawan saya yang ada sekali masa tu cakap ''Engkau lembut sangat, pakcik tu nak buli kau''.

Maybe sebab tu pakcik tu banyak kali cakap ''Orang lain tak payah campur, saya nak dia yang bagitau macam mana nak buat'' walaupun tiap-tiap kali dia cakap tu jawapan saya adalah ''Kalau pakcik tak nak setelkan, kita pergi report polis''.

Saya dah ada dua kali pengalaman macam ni, so saya tau dia yang salah, and I have nothing to lose kalau pergi report.

Maybe dia tengok saya lembut, dia harap saya bodoh jugak kot.

P/s : walaupun kawan saya banyak kali sound saya lembut sangat, sebenarnya saya ada rasa bersalah sebab saya rasa bercakap macam kurang ajar dengan pakcik tu. Macam mana tu?

..Job-Hunting Tips..

Well, I'm not an expert what-so-ever, but I just feel like sharing. So, for all soon-to-be fresh graduates, I hope this will help. I'm not to talk about what skills you need to have, confidence level or tips for interview - I think you had that lecture enough.

So, the two things that fresh graduates need to equip themselves with:

1. Driving license - although most of us won't have car once we graduate, but I found it essential to have driving license, I mean, at least you are prepared to buy a car right after working for 3 months (well, since most banks need 3 months payslip and most of car dealers have free-down-payment promotion for fresh graduates).

Yes, you'll suffer for the first three month of your career but at least you don't have to worry about taking driving class or passing JPJ test at this stage of your life. So please get the license while you're still studying, before you graduate. Get a job during semester break to pay for the license fee, or whatever, figure out the way, no excuse!!

Because I once involved in employing new staff, the question my superior asked when I recommended a friend "Does she has transport?", "Does she has driving license?" and "Can she drive?". A "No" answer to each of these questions definitely decrease the chance of employment.

2. Be flexible - this one is crucial. If you can't stand being away from home sweet home, then just be prepared for the unemployment world. Do whatever it takes, , be far away from hometown on your own, rent a room even with strangers, well, just sacrifice first. Once you have the experince then most probably you can apply a job anywhere you want. Eventually.

These two reasons I always hear from those who are yet to find a job that best suit their qualification "Tak de transport" and "Jauh". Sometimes they decided to turn down a job offer just because of these two things. Sounds trivial to some of us, but believe me, some people let these trivial things stop them from what getting what they deserve.

So, in case you just googled "Job-Hunting Tips" and found this blog, good luck to you :)

..Don't Complain, Just Work Harder..

"Too many people go through life complaining about their problems. I've always believed that if you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you'd be surprised by how well things can work out"

-Randy Pausch, author of The Last Lecture-

..Embracing Ramadhan..

A friend of mine posted a status in her Facebook recently, reminded to settle all raya preparation before Ramadhan so that on Ramadhan, we should only concentrate on ibadah. Which I agree and I will try to do this year.

Although certain people might say "Puasa pun belum dah sibuk nak raya"...

And, ada satu kebiasaan yang saya perasan - the day before puasa, orang akan sibuk hantar (or more precisely, forward) e-mail mintak maaf kat semua orang sempena nak menyambut Ramadhan which always make me think - where's the sincerity?

..Appreciation Lunch at Le Grandeur..

This was on last week, but as I'm writing this, it's weird that I don't remember whether it was on Wednesday or Thursday. Hmm, most probably on Wednesday.

Lunch treat as a token of appreciation for us, - the ISO 9001 & 14001 internal auditors. This was at Le Grandeur Palm Resort, or previously known as Mercure Palm resort, and more previously known as Sofitel. *annually tukar nama :P







The food to me was so-so.


*This is an auto-published post.

..Kitty Cat..

This is out of terrible guilt.

I ran over a kitty cat this morning :(

I didn't know she's under my car - I never cheched that before. I thought it's a cats nature to get away from the car when they hear the engine started.

I feel so bad, crying all the way to work.

Although I really don't keep it, but having her around did make our day.

A few days before En Hubby found her twice in his car's engine bonnet. As we laugh hillarously, she looked at us as if wondering what are these two human laughing so hardly at. I wanted to take picture of that, but Hubby said 'next time'.

But there's no more next time :(

..Before Sunrise & Before Sunset...



I watched "Before Sunrise" movie in You Tube after watching its sequel "Before Sunset" in HBO recently.

I really love these two movies especially Before Sunset which I feel is very realistic and like most of the critics say 'the characters are older and wiser'. And I can't believe watching a movie that's all about talking can be entertaining. The conversations seem real and natural, or maybe it's the actors factor - Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy - they are so watchable haha. I can watch this like, everyday :P

Btw, I just want to quote a line from Before Sunrise

"You know what drives me crazy? It's all these people talking about how great technology is, and how it saves all this time. But, what good is saved time, if nobody uses it? If it just turns into more busy work. You never hear somebody say, "With the time I've saved by using my word processor, I'm gonna go to a Zen monastery and hang out". I mean, you never hear that."

Doesn't that sound just right? I think I'd probably be quoting more soon :P

..Tak De Kerja??..

Entah sapa lah yang suka sangat buat prank macam ni kan..

Owh, I'm talking about the so-called 'latest' McDonald coupon yang GCB Buy 1 Free 1 tu.

Rumors spread like wildfire and apparently nowadays, McD coupons, too. Even the fake one. Well, not that I care about the GCB pun, cuma rasa geram kat orang yang 'bersusah-payah' edit gambar untuk tengok e-mail tu merebak.

*Talking about Photoshop geeks, huh.

..Early vs Late..

When I go to sleep earlier than usual, the chance of over-slept and waking up late is BIG.

But then, when I get up a little later, the chance of getting earlier to office is BIG.

How-lah?

..Lip Treatment That Works..

Hmm... Agak tak percaya - me reviewing a beauty product?? I even have to add another label "Beauty" for this blog hehehe.

But good things need to be shared, right?

I think I've mentioned a few times in my previous posts that I have this flaky, dried and chapped lips since - forever. Dah banyak jugak lips products yang dalam affordable range saya cuba - Vaseline, LipIce, Banana Boat, Maybelline, but nothing works :(

I even tried Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie, tapi sama jugak. The applied layer akan jadi kering dan mengeringkan lagi bibir saya.

Lipstick was a big no-no for me.

Plain water memang saya minum lebih kurang 3liter satu hari, but still my lips are not improved at all. Sedih sangat and rasa give up :(

Sebelum jumpa produk yang OK ni, I tried Aloe Lip Treatment from BodyShop, but sadly, tak jalan jugak.

Tapi I dh tak tahu nak try apa lagi, so I decided nak beli jugak lagi for the second tube, but fortunately that time, the promoter at BodyShop suggested these two when she looked at my super-dry lips. So I guess I should give it a try.


Lip Care:


LipScuff:

Alhamdulillah, the LipCare works wonder on me. It moisturizes my lips well, no dried layer anymore, unlike the previous lip care products. Normally, every morning I apply Lipscuff dulu to remove the dead cells, then only apply the Lipcare. Tapi I selalu kena apply Lip Care tu, like every hour kalau duduk dalam air-cond. But that's OK, asalkan tak kering lagi. I dah try ni dalam sebulan, so far memang OK.

Since I have the worst lips problem in the world, I think whatever products that work for me would work well for others, too.

..Jurulatih Pertama..

Hubby went out-station last week. Pergi customer plant di Shenzhen, tapi dia stay kat Hong Kong. Sebelum dia pergi saya dah pesan tak payah nak belikan saya apa-apa, berjimatlah 'kononnya'.

Hari pertama dia sampai Hong Kong, katanya first day belum pergi China lagi so jalan-jalan kat Hong Kong dulu. Malam tu dia text saya. Owh, conversation agak sengal sikit so feel free to skip eheh :P

Hubby : Syg ngah wt pe?
Me : Tgk fb...pasal BERSIH.abg mkn dh ke?syg xmkn pn lg.xselera.pastu sakit pala dr pg td.....
Hubby : Sian. ni abg ade beli sesuatu kt syg.pakai utk raya.mesti syg suka giler.abg anta mms xdpt.xtau npe.huhuhu
Me : Abg beli handbag yer...tulke?
Hubby : Iyer.....handbag kesukaan syg
Me : COACH???
Hubby : Aaah.die macam clutch.xbesar.sederhana.leyla pakai raya.
Me: Uwaaaa...terharunyerr..rse cm baik trus sakit pala hehehe..tq boo boo, sayang boo boo :) Eh, ni hok ori ke hok gred aa?
Hubby : Ori la.ade warranty 1year

Seriously, memang terus baik sekejap sakit kepala malam tu. Hehehe. And yang comelnya, dia tau clutch tu apa, so cute *ye, sila muntah.

Memang saya ada banyak kali cakap kat En hubby yang saya berazam nak beli jugak one of the designer handbag, at least sekali seumur hidup jadilah, tapi taklah berniat nak dia belikan pun. I actually would prefer to save money and buy it myself since this is just a 'want' thing, not 'need' thing.

But anyway, I'm so thankful he always take note of every silly things I say. Thanks Boo-Boo :)

..Politik?..

I remember on 9th july, I got so engaged in front of this lappy, browsing facebook, you tube, twitter and what not, trying to review and understand things from both sides.

And I guess En Hubby found me so serious that day, he asked ""Buat apa tu? Seriusnya dari tadi". So I answered, "Berpolitik"

Haha.

I know some people don't care, but I do. A little too much, maybe. Owh, it's actually one of my 100-things-to-do-before-I-die things. To be involve directly/indirectly.

And on the other hand, thanks to BERSIH event, photography wise - I have an idea of what kind of pictures I want to capture. I kind of lost interest once I bought the DSLR, but now I think it's quite clear to me. But I'll talk about that once I start capturing 'it'.

Good night (or morning).

..A Little Thought For Today..

"Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end up by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it in the beginning

..Tutti Frutti..

Went to Tutti Frutti yesterday at Sutera Utama, kedai ni sederet dengan PappaRich.

So, the frozen yogurt adalah sangat sedap, walaupun agak mahal. The green cup is big size, the orange one is the small size. Ada jugak pink cup which is for medium size.

Harga adalah rm5.30 per 100gm. Macam yang saya n En Hubby punya tu dalam RM35.

According to the staff, the flavor will be changed every week. Masa saya pergi, flavor yang ada - coklat, vanila, papaya, laici, coconut, original tutti frutti n delima.

Topping pun macam-macam ada :) rasa macam nak pergi lagi

..........

I think as we grow older, we'll find things to believe - for whatever reasons, and we will decide to stick to it. And at some point the belief would be so firm, it's hardly get moved by anything else, regardless it's wrong or right.

Somehow or rather, we'll interpret things relatively to what we believe.

Contoh. Cuba kalau cakap kat orang-orang yang join 'certain' MLM - yang bisnes diorang tu pyramid scheme ke apa ke, nanti dia akan jawab "Carta organisasi company untuk orang yang makan gaji pun pyramid scheme jugak"

See? Our judgement will be bias, I guess we'll believe only things we want to believe, we'll only see things we want to see in the end.

So, seriously, there's no need to argue. Tak berbaloi kata orang lain bodoh. If you're smart enough I guess you won't label others as 'bodoh' kot.

Why bother trying to persuade others to believe the same thing that you do?

It's a free country.

Or not.

Whatever.

..Dark of The Moon..


Dasyat kan penangan movie ni.. Mula-mula we planned to watch 3D version, tapi semalam, survey punya survey, almost all cinemas are full-house, then we have to settle for non-3D at MBO Taman U.

Since we bought 1230 am ticket, dah macam nak balik kampung pun ada - siap tido dulu sebelum pergi cinema hehe.

For me, I enjoyed watching it despite my interest nowadays are no longer into action-pack genre. But I don't adore the heroin (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) much since she's all that supermodel type of girl - I find that character is not real. With all the sci-fiction characters of Autobots, Sentinel, Megatron blabla, at least I wish that the human characters would look more 'real'. Even En Hubby said Megan Fox is more preferable. *And dia dapat cubitan percuma selepas komen itu dibuat haha

Lepas ni maybe kami akan pergi tengok 3D pulak bila demam Transformers ni kurang sikit nanti.
