I liked this week, till today came

I had a wonderful week this week. I came in on Monday, managed to do quite a lot at the office and settled many major issues that's been mushrooming lately. Anyway, all problems aside, I was sent off for the next 3 days by my company's training centre to learn how to make plastic parts. I've been to numerous mould trials, but I never knew what the operators actually do. This time, I not only know what to do, what to know, how to calculate for that perfect output, but I now also know how to set up the mould machine itself. Cool OK. Best part bout this training was that I managed to make many many plant pots and cups for the house.huhu..Of course with the help of my lovely groupmates. And to top it all off, Thursday nite was spent with my school loves. My favorite classmates in the world during my whole 10 years in school. Even though I only got to know you guys since form 4, you guys made my school days complete and blissfull. Love you, Najah, Saza, Shikin and Hazreen.

Today, however, came and took my smile away. I'm having a headache now, just thinking of my future, and how it can change forever with a mere mistake I'm about to make if I decided wrongly. I need guidance, but I don't know from whom I could get it from.

I AM SINGLE

The title may seem to some, as a desperate calling for a relationship or for that special someone. Ever since last week, I know I should somehow set the record straight, in case you heard otherwise. Yup, last week, a certain someone had asked me one of the biggest questions of my life. 'Are you married to ******* ***** *****? WTF la kan...No way I am married to that freak, and Alhamdulillah, God loves me enough to show me the light, at just the right time. So here I am...telling everyone...I AM SOOOO SINGLE!!!

Salsa

No, this is not the sexy salsa dance that you might think it is. This is pretty sexy itself, considering how easy it is to make it, and how much of an impression it can make on others having it with their roast chicken, steak, spaghetti or just about anything that needs the extra refreshing sweet and sour taste. There're lotsa versions to this, but this may be my very personal favorite, considering its impact on taste, yet so simple and cheap. This is for 6 pax.

Ingredients:
2 red apples, chopped
1 green apple, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
a handful of chopped coriander (daun ketumbar)
1 tsp ground cumin (jintan putih)
a pinch of salt

Method:
Mix all ingredients. Refrigerate till needed.

Acting Mom

Mak is recuperating from her recent operation. We're all so glad that everything went so smoothly. There was only a hiccup along the way (operation reschedule), but Alhamdulillah, Mak is well on her way to wellness. So I'm wearing now, my 'Mom Hat' and taking charge of the house.

Beamin' and Singin'

Sambil tengah syok sendiri, menyanyi with all my might to Sarah Maclachlan's Angel (sipi-sipi teringat final year dinner) kat bilik with Youtube, tetibe terasa agak happy kebelakangan ini. Adakah mungkin sebab kerja di ofis yang kelihatan semakin bererti?Atau adakah kerana something great is about to happen soon? Someone please slap me now, before I get too happy now, but very sad later.

Beautiful Friday

What day could be better than Fridays? (excluding Saturdays and Sundays of course). I'm sipping away my second coffee of the day, while waiting for my design to run slowly, knowing at the back of my mind that I'll be on my way back home in only 2 hours. I've done quite a lot today, and I think I deserve this 5 minutes of babbling in my blog. My colleagues are mostly not in yet, due to the heavyly beautiful downpour and Friday prayers. I had a good lunch, watched 2 series of Scrubs, and had a quick nap, before the lights went on. This is just too perfect and don't anyone dare to ruin it. TGIF...lalala

Bali Bali

Bedugul - tasik di gunung berapi

Breathtaking Uluwatu
Seronok shopping di Art Market Kuta
With the talented artists
Barong dance at Batubulan

Me and Mak having our tea before leaving for home sweet home

I'm definitely coming back. Bali is fantastic. I love the people (they love us Malaysians back), great relaxation (massage, warm beach...oo la la), breath-taking views (and not forgetting utter solemnity) and fantabulous shopping!!huhu...We went on the Kintamani Tour, Bedugul Tour, Half-Day Uluwatu and Kecak Dance package, and the rest was all on our own two feets. 5 days went by too quickly. Must-sees are the Kecak Dance during sunset at Uluwatu, the view at Kintamani and Bedugul (highlands unlike what I've ever seen).

I must recommend that first-timers like myself, should stay in Kuta, just like my cousin recommended. I stayed in Hotel Legian Paradiso, a modest yet like the rest of Bali, detailed with its delicate beauty. Very convenient, about 30 minutes from the International Airport, 10 minutes walk to the Legian Beach - get the cheap massages they offer here, while cuci mata on cool surfer dudes, 5 minutes walk to its Arts Market (very good bargain here) surrounded by good shops for your shopping pleasures, 2 minutes walk to 3 Minang Muslim restaurants, 2 minutes walk to the best CD shop I've ever been to (Rp10,000 each only!!), and endless flow of taxis that'd take you everywhere (but be extra careful, they cheat sometimes). This hotel also has its own spa, so you only need to step out of your room, walk a few steps and into the spa at any time (they even do room service). Oh yeah...did I mention they serve Halal breakfast as well?
For your shopping pleasures, best bargains would be at various places, for various items. Get gorgeous beaded slippers at Ubud (especially towards nightfall), leather goods at Goa Gajah, clothings at Kuta and Tanah Lot, cheap souveniers and home deco at Denpasar Art Market, exotic aromatherapy and spa soaps, oil, scrubs at Kuta, beaded accesories at Kuta, original paintings at Ubud, stone carvings at Batubulan and the list goes on...I like I like I like! So...here are some of the shots of Bali.
