letting lose

its great to finally be able to let your hair down (not literally of coz) and relax a little, when you know you're on track with your project. i don't need to go to the company daily anymore, since we have managed to arrange all that is needed for the week. a lot more needs to be done, but i think it could be carried on by the company themselves. i now need to focus more on the studies and matching cases to my current one, to be able to see how i could help improve.

so with all this time in hand...what do i do? nothing much, unfortunately, coz fasting is around the corner, i have only 2 more weekends from this coming one. im going to leeds next week, for a weekend for a sleepover at dear cousin's, and expecting guests from malaysia on d following weekend. then fasting comes, which will be horrendous, since its all 19 hours of no food and drinks in the summer...woohoo... guess who'll be d next american top model. hehe. porah!

so ill be left with about a month after that, so that's when i need to come down to london for that last kopek and for the bath, salisbury and windsor tour! then its back to liverpool till end sept and hello malaysia!

doing my thesis is not so bad after all...

foodie lost in non-foodie land

i just realised it...i'm a foodie in a land where nothing is good to eat! sheesh...no wonder d happy hormones are nowhere to be seen...jalan la 100km pon...no hormones coming man...today i was disappointed yet again with the crappy cakes they have here in Liverpool...omg...can't they make decent cakes for once...i thought cakes were born in England...no? crap man...victoria sandwich, red velvet, simple vanilla cupcakes...all nonsense..i mean, can eat la, but nothing satisfying my need for good cake...malas nak buat, tp gamaknya kena buat jugaklah nmpk nya...sigh...smoking d chimney this thursday with grandma's butter cake with lemon butter icing..

missing my homie

never thought that i'd be this badly affected about not having Ada around...she went back home today for 3 months, only to meet me again in september...i know i have another one in the house, but its just not the same...Ada was there for me at the times i most needed her...which is almost every hour between doing my assignments, or reading the numerous journals...she's such a positive energy, one which i lack especially lately, with her silly dances and funny intonation and loud skyping with her bestfriend and boyfriends...gosh...this will be tough 3 months...

I keep repeating the same mistakes I make with guys...being clingy...and worst part is, this guy's not even my boyfriend! 

Sheesh...

I need to take a breather...

I need to think...

Then if I still find the need to open my big opinionated mouth, then it shouldn't sound too bad this time...

OR just bloody shut up for once, and get on with life...

Need to remember that the world does NOT revolve around me...

6 years on..

Came across my older posts...Sept 2007...Lets update this shall we? Blue is new!

1. what’s bothering you right now?
the fact that i'm at work now, my eyes are heavy, and i could hear the soft faraway calling of my comfy bed.
having the knowledge that i have a thesis to settle, but all im thinking about is how desperate housewives would end...and how annoyed i am with a friend who im not too sure of at this moment...

2. describe your
wallet:brownish grey (warna kulit gajah la...i know what you want to say, but i'd defend myself by saying that i didn't know any better then, young and foolish), full of cards and receipts and teeny bit money....light turquoise with a beautiful peacock details in the front from NEXT...got this 2 days ago from my friends for my birthday...
wallpaper on pc: i have 2 logins here, so one is gamba haziq in towel (my adorable godson), and the other is something my system admin had set...dunno wat it is....adorable cats pictures i've colllected over the years, under the folder 'penceria hidup'...its so ironic that i'm actually allergic to those adorable fur balls...

bckgrnd on cellphone: my gamba (hehe..poyo)....a heart shape i scribbled on this app i have..its pink (surprise...surprise...)
jewellery worn daily: chain n locket, earings, and recently, i got this rose quartz from dear sis, so i wear that religiously now...chain and rose quartz locket i got from Mekah...
eyes: blue (yeah rite)...black brown
life: wats dat ya?okla...im loving it now...great friends, family's fine, i go out...ok la tuh kan? confusing, fun, kinda empty and adrift...

3. what are you:
doing this wknd: hmm...no plans just yet...maybe bukak puasa somewhere nice with family...carbooting and report-writing...
wearing: Proton shirt and pants...skirt and my fav laos t-shirt :)
wanting: getting away alone to a comfy hotel, with a book, and my phone playing my fav tunes...go home...as in Malaysia...
listening: high and dry - radiohead...my iTune listing...mixed artists
smell like: rose and lychee...well, at least i think i do...that's what d salesgirl said when i asked for this perfume; eternity moment...almond from bodyshop...i just love the shower gel and body butter...

4. do you:believe in soulmate: yes...i think...i hope...i still do...
believe in miracles: yes i do! i still do...
burn quickly in the sun: very much...especially around water...i just did 2 weeks back :)

Being 33

I'm officially 1/3 of a century...hoorah! Well...its not so bad, actually, and celebrating it away from home was not as bad as I thought either...


I had 7 extra hours of 6th June, thanks to the time difference between Malaysia and UK...
I had 2 birthday cakes...One for the day we celebrated both mine and Anis at Red Hot restaurant...and another one on the day itself...which was a total surprise!
I got great gifts and cards from Anis, Ada and Shabz...teared me up a little...
I got sushi made with love from Mini...
We made pizza from scratch...
We had 2 movie nights...
I almost got heart attack when Anis screamed happy birthday! while watching a movie...And got powdered up as punishment of being a birthday girl...
I got a birthday banner hung up in my room while I was dragged to Tesco to buy grocery...cute way of getting me out of the room...Prior to that, they managed to make me totally bored by being on Skype and the rain didn't help either...
I had to walk around in public with a party hat from the restaurant, through shopping area, and all the way home...Which got some Mat Saleh singing and wishing me and Anis happiest of days...
I got a brilliant gift from a friend halfway around the globe...


And being Olyn, the sad part was...

I didn't have Mom around...
I didn't get my annual hugs and kisses from my sisters...
I didn't have my bestfriends around...especially Nik, since we're almost sharing a birthday!

Despite the sad things, I think I was really happy yesterday and the day before...It was fun, it was unexpected...This moment is something I'd remember for life, and I owe everything to my dearest housemates for making it so special...

Rest A Bit ;)

Its great to finally have time to breathe...even though its for only 4 days...I had my last paper for my program, it was hell, but heck with it...InsyaAllah, its fine...

After that dreadful day, we went shopping downtown...Most of my shopping now are to satisfy a certain gift list I made few months ago, for everyone...I mean everyone, even to the details of little baby Zara :) They're not much...I was telling a friend the other day, how I hope my friends would even like the presents I got them, on my student wage...He keeps reminding me that its the thought that counts...Wise man :)

So, its June now...my favourite month of the year, when I'd usually celebrate my birthday with my sister and Mak (my fellow-family Gemini mates), with Nik (my fellow-bestie Gemini mate) and the Proton Gemini babies for a short weekend trip...Its just me and housemates this year, with mostly everything on Ada's shoulders...hehe...We bought something for Anis today, which I'm sure she'll love...We'll be celebrating Anis's and my birthday on the 5th, since I'll be working during mine...Yup, the job of trying to get a messy little factory into shape and into being better managed...phew...2.5 months for that! Anyway...I look forward to the days coming, and I hope for the best for my effort of writing 15,000 words starting on my birthday!
