New Job

4th week into the job. maybe a bit premature to comment much, but so far, its been a roller coaster. i am blessed to be 'loaned' to this sweet man; my on loan boss for this huge project to manage. he's sweet, but a man of few words. 2 weeks into the job and the man falls ill. i did not get to learn so much. independant work is indeed huge here. everyday is a struggle now; trying to understand things, trying to answer my onsite client on so many random things that comes to her head, trying to report to my other superiors about whats happening to the project; all this, to fill my boss's shoes. i'm still trying to be optimistic about this, and am praying hard that he returns soon. kinda drowning. overwhelmed. kinda lost. hmm

I Got Engaged

Dear Diary,

A dear kind man finally came and got me hooked to him, and we got engaged recently on 31 July 2016. That date is exactly 6 months since we met online. It was an emotional day for me. I felt the loss of not having Ayah around and being skeptical of how my uncle would do as Mak's representative. I felt so happy that I am in the path of marrying someone I love so much and coz I've always wanted to get married. I felt agitated about how the house and setting looks like, with me upstairs and relying on my other sisters to make it look good. Good enough for my fussy standards. I felt nervous about the new Mak Andam Kak Dudi recommended, coz I didn't want to look overmade and crazy. I felt happy for Mak, for finally starting the ball rolling again in the family. My best friends all came, minus Parveen, Runiz and Marina, but that's OK, they can come for the wedding (they better)

Alhamdulillah, despite my wacko thoughts, I think it went well. Abe said that his family was happy and my family was certainly happy, and I think that's all that matters right? I think the setting was how I wanted it to be, the make up was a teeny bit crazy, but I looked good on photo, so I guess that's about right then, and Ayah Sulong of course did his job well. After all, there's about 10 of us cousins, and mostly he had to play the elderly role. Abe looked handsome in his pink shirt and khakis :)

The elderlies decided on few things; we are to get married in Feb 2017, hantaran of RMXXXXX, and 5 to 7 dulang. All as discussed with Abe. Photo sessions turned out superb thanks to Nita and Na, and everyone had a great time taking pictures with me. Yours truly forgot how tiring it was at that time, until night fell, and the exhaustion crept in. Adrenaline gets you hyped up I guess. I'm now in my second week post engagement, still getting used to wearing a ring everyday, and Alhamdulillah Abe has been such a great support to my emotional turbulence lately. I don't know if its my hormones, the way things are with my current job, or if its the dreaded 'darah manis' situation. Hope all goes well till February, may everything goes smoothly as planned. Ameen

Ramadhan Kareem Sahur

The Awesome and Gorgeous ADs decided that Iftar was too mainstream...and decided to wake up for sahur our jammies..I didn't exactly come in mine, of course, for reasons :p

Brought along Na, since it was at 3am. Had great fun even though most of us were 3/4 awake and eyes so red. Nora managed to down 2 nasi lemak and 2 pieces of chicken. But I guess baru worth the effort of coming down all the way from Shah Alam. Shuk brought along Sabrina from Bangi, whom we all love and has been made part of the group anyway. So we had 2 Sabrina sidekicks :) Missing Arnez who's in Germany and Kama who had set his alarm wrong and put his phone on silent..apala..may this friendship last forever and for more crazy sahur ideas in the future.

Happy Day

Its a good day today. My new toy got delivered to the office on time hence the update on my long lost blog (white 11in Dell which I adore). Job all done for the day, and will be having Japanese for dinner today with Marina, a colleague and close friend :)

Its been a while since my last post. I am now a much happier clam. InsyaAllah I have met the man of my dreams finally, and I think he may be reading this. Love you Abe.

More updates from now onwards, hopefully. Hmm..need to think of a name for this white baby. Happy Tuesday dear readers...if there's still any left :p
