Carbonara Yumm

I should have more faith in my sis from now onwards. Last night, I had one of the best Spaghetti Carbonara ever! Its not her recipe, most definitely, but it was basically perfectly coated with the creamy, yummy sauce, with just the right amount of salty beef (she forgot to buy beef bacon and we - being Mak and I, suggested that she fried the beef we had with teeny extra salt). Its from Martha Stewart, and this proves that her recipes are safe to try. Cost for overall cooking - RM30. Cheap aye, for 8 plates! Try this!

Social Contract

Some forget, some do not know, and some just don't care. Do you really not care? I'm extremely worried. Read this.

Hats Up!

What type of a driver are you? Are you the kind who, if given way, would pass with your hands high up, to show how thankful you are for their kind gesture, or is the type who'd keep a straight face, and move on like nothing had happened?

I was in the car with sis, after a short pasar malam trip, where we were putting up our hands after another, coz of the traffic, when she related to an incident that happened with my mom's friend. Something like this...

Friend: Yan...you kenal ke orang tuh? Siapa tuh? Kawan Olyn ke?
Mom: Siapa?
Friend: Yang tadi you angkat tangan tuh...
Mom:Erm...tak...dia kasi jalan tadi...
Friend: Ooo...ingatkan kenal td...

Hehe...weird...no wonder lesser people are saying thank you's nowadays for simple courtesy...For your info...yes...it's good manners to say thank you...no..you don't even have to shout it out, hoping the other kind driver to hear...a simple nod (and a smile if you have any) and a hand gesture (not the finger dudes) would do...You'd make someone's day, and you'll feel good...Trust me...What goes around comes around...Have a nice day!

Back in Gear

I'm happy again...after all the thinking and confusion, fate had answered, and I now know where I'm heading to for the next few years...Thank you God for your all your blessings and direction...

Green Getaway

I can't wait for this trip...It would be about 2 weeks after the Bandung trip, and only my family (cousins and aunts and all...the Zubaidah clan) will occupy this 3 acres land for the weekend...huhu...Ayah used to organize these kinda trips, and I guess having his blood, my elder sis is organizing this beautiful one-nite stay...I know its gorgeous not just through the web, but we got to peep in on the way back from sending off my lil sis to Pahang last weekend...I mean it...its gorgeous, especially if you love natural landscape and appreciates the tradisional feel to this place...We had tea with the owners (beautiful Fred Suria-she's French, and her hubby Zaini) and she toured us around the compound, and told us her story. Her story reminds me of one from a story book...This is a place where you could just sit back and finish up your novel or bathe in the cool clean river Janda Baik is famous for...Jom gi Zaini's Guest House nak? It's sooo lawa...

Just Friends?

Have you been through this? You get to know a guy...They start messaging you every night...They start calling you baby, darling, dear etc...They talk intimately with you...They keep on asking for your photos because they love to see you...And in the end they say you guys are just friends... Is that actually normal? I wonder if its just me, being easily swayed by simple affection, or it really is an act of insanity on their side...If that is friendship, I wonder how it'd be like with their loved ones...

Confused

I am seriuosly at a junction.

One part of me would love to just pack up and go somewhere far away from this superficial life; go travel like the female nomad whom I know is hiding beneath this layers of crisply ironed shirt and pants. I have so many places to go to, it makes me sick to be reminded that without this job, I could never do so...

Another part of me would just like to quit, and cook and sell all my goodies...Seeing people smile after a bite of my creation tops any kinds of worries and sickness in the world...

Another part of me would just like to settle down! I'd love to feel resposible over myself and my loved ones...building up a family slowly, spoiling my hubby and my cute children...Going out with them..Mana my guy nih??

Another part of me always dreams of being an Ir. maybe partly for the sake of making the most of what I've achieved so far or maybe because it is what's expected of any engineers to achieve in the end, or maybe because I know that this choice is one of the most logical choice I have in life; considering I have a family to take care of...

And lastly, another part of me would love to study overseas, just like I wanted to 10 years ago...

You see how confused I am right now? And how much I want in life? At this age however, I wonder if its not too late to be thinking of these choices...
