Thank You

This year Syawal, open house is the main agenda every weekend to the last drop! Last was yesterday. I had a wonderful time eating here and there, furthest destination would be Bangi. Thank you everyone for your invites, InsyaAllah I will do my best to make one next year. Halal makan minum. See you next year or earlier OK? Selamat Hari raya!

A day after Deepavali...Post Holiday Symdrome?

Happy Deepavali to all who celebrates this beautiful festival of lights, and Happy Holidays to all others!!!!

A day after yesterday (today) however, I took half day leave, and many things happened.

Firstly, a bit of whining. Bear with me. I took leave, actually, due to my beloved Savvy Baby, who needs the extra attention of replacing its rear wheel spindle. I was called to come, at 8.00am and the procedure should be done in an hour or so. Yeah, I know I should be thankful that it WAS over by 9.15, but what's with the attitude la?I am very punctual, so I arrived by 7.50am, and I waited without a blink of irritation to 8.00am, to find that I was asked to come back at 12 noon. What the heck la kan...Yours trully DEFINITELY DID NOT give in, and was on the edge of screaming, but patiently and gently explained that she took only half the day off, and it's NOT possible to come back for another month or 2. So they said, OK, maybe they could do it after all (????) Anyway, I was grateful, and asked for the nearest mamak stall to lepak in while they do their work. They courteously showed me the way, and I walked happily to the food kingdom, only to find that the guys were trailing me behind, for THEIR meal as well!!!Get why I'm pissed? Anyway, all ended well on time (well, if they started straight away, I could drive back home at 8.30 kot!)

Secondly, gratitude to gentlemen on earth. Especially to truck drivers who always have the time to give me and my gendermates way onto the road. Kudos to you guys.

Thirdly, I felt like choking a certain someone who had asked me to back to the office just because they forgot the keys to the office. I don't mind the hassle, but to scream at ME for your own carelessness? I think that's just plain unfair man...

Fourthly, I must stress that I'm really beginning to worry about my youngest nephew. He didn't say much today, except 'Gi tak comel hari ni' (yeah, they call me Gi...don't ask why) but whatever..hehe..The thing that worried me was the fact that he thinks he's beautiful today, after wearing MY tudung...ayoo...

My Latest Obsession: My Nails!

Check out these home manicured and buffed nails! Not bad aye for an amateur...I use Body Shop's Nail Block, and swear by it. Only RM19.90 for shiny, well-groomed nails. Its been 2 weeks and my nails are still oh-so-shiny.

Raya and Beyond

Its the mid of Syawal already, and a lot of things had happened since my last entry. Lets see...

Cherating was something I really needed to just let go, and free my mind from the constant stress I go through daily now at the office. As I always say, it is much much easier dealing with machines and computers than dealing with people. What do I do? I manage people to ensure my projects run as smooth-sailing as possible. Try that for a change...Anyway, as all of our earlier trips here, we chose to stay in a simple chalet, right on the beach itself, so that we could hear the waves day in and out, and get to lepak on the verandah as long as we want. Myself, with a book and the wind from the sea. Such bliss. And what is a trip to near Ganu without the delish kepok lekor, satar and otok-otok, and not forgetting Hai Ping! I felt like staying there forever...

Wonder what's with the mouth...Na (with the mouth and Mak dearest) Not posing, I can assure you...This is what the beach can do to you...day dream away...

The one and only crab that agreed to pose for the camera...Others were too shy


On the verandah...Jealous tak?

Lily, my closest cousin (other than El :)) gave birth to another beautiful baby boy, Rayyan Iskandar. I wish you only the best my dearest, and may baby Rayyan grow up just her his mother; smart and beautiful inside out.

Baby Rayyan, sleeping soundly in Mama's arms

Ayah's family came down from Ipoh just last week, to visit us in our humble home. We had great dinner (prepared by Mak; yours truly was at work, and joined after) and chit-chatted till almost midnight. Its been a while since we gathered like this, almost 2 years, since Makcik Shikin got married, and all of us had such a great time. Nenek is not quite well, but still very chatty throughout the night. They left back for Ipoh the next day, and we promised to visit.

Raya Day Two

I'm back in my sarong (yes, I live in KL all my life, and I wear sarong just like any kampong girl you can think of) after a long long day of entertaining guests (family jer, friends InsyaAllah in 2 weeks time OK) and serving them with my family's specials. Pakistani Beriani and lotsa lotsa cakes. We have this thing, my sis and I with cakes. We had Brownies, Cupcakes, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Cake and Fruit Cake. Weird? Maybe...huhu...Some of the other stuffs that has happened...

Did you know...apparently, in the 70's, the word 'kinky' means that you're stylo milo...huhu...My sis got that from an aunt...I couldn't stop laughing..woohoo...Na is kinky...Na is kinky...

I had food from 4 houses in a row...felt like being bullimic last nite, but too tired to walk to the toilet, so just slept off with the extra fat I gained in a day...

My 2nd nephew is a nutcase...He just HAS to say anything on his mind especially about other people...Its kinda hard to write up on what he says, just that I need to get it out of my system...hehe...I love you anyway baby...

That's it for now...Tomorrow I'm off to Cherating! Later aligators...
