Can't Wait for the Next Long Weekend

Good weekend, most definitely.

I caught up with friends over lunch and a wedding dinner on Friday, a bit of body pampering and coffee after on Saturday and a little shopping and dinner on Sunday...........

Plus I attended a kenduri at my grandaunt's in Bangsar on Saturday night. After the kenduri we sat around and I was entertained by my nieces and nephews.
Hanna Montana, Taylor Swift & MJ in the making!
Didn't get the dancing and singing acts on camera though. But they were adorable :)

The spa thingy was a last minute thing actually, a good friend of mine will be getting hitch on Boxing Day, so she wanted to do another round of 'spa-ing' before her Big Day. I decided to join her and I was to decide on a place. So, I managed to come across Khareyana Spa by googling. I've never heard of the place before, but decided to give it a try since the place looked quite nice on its website plus it was featured on NTV7's Life Session (a show I've never watched, but since it has appeared on TV, must be something right?)



Khareyana Spa, Petaling Jaya



They are having a promo until the end of the year, so I got a treatment worth RM250 for 200 bucks :)

I wanted something traditional, so I opted for this treatment:

Traditional Balinese Body Ritual

This classic treatment originates from bali which is the center of the holistic spa experience whereby the treatment reflects the sacred balance of balinese culture. The elements used in the treatment are sourced out from the varied terrain of the island; salt, sand & seaweed from the beaches, volcanic stone & earth from the mountains and flowers, herbs, roots and grains from the ancient fields. Transport yourself to bali – it’s the best two hours spa you have ever taken!

120 Minutes RM250.00

Balinese full body massage.Clean and polish the whole body with bali lulur powder. Bali boreh body mask is applied to the whole body to lift out impurities and dead skin.Quick shower and application of moisturizing cream.


And yes, we enjoyed our session :)

Money well spent!

And the other happy thing is, on Sunday, I managed to reserve a pair of Aldo's I've eyed on in Bangsar Village on Friday!
They only had the display unit, which I didn't want. So the SA in BV told me they had a pair in One Utama (after I told him to check, he was pretty slow in service :p).
And so I went yesterday to OU. Little did I know, it was also the display unit!! But the SA I dealt with in OU was helpful. He called Aldo in The Gardens, and they didn't have it in my size. He told me to walk around and he'll make a few calls to the other outlets.

About 20 minutes later he called, he said there is a pair (brand new not display :p) in Penang.

Weeee!


They will be sending the pair down to KL in 3-5 days time. That really made my day.

Went home... a good friend came over... then decided to go 'Fatty Crabbing' with a few others.

Why did Sunday have to end so fast?

L.O.V.E



I came across this poetry.... sweet!


The Colour of My Love

David Foster and Arthur Janov

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Knowing that we'll never part.
I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn, so much to try.

I'll paint my mood in a shadow blue,
Paint my soul to be with you.
I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones,
Draw your mouth to my own.

I'll trace a hand to wipe your tears
And trace a look to calm your fears.
A silhouette of dark and light
To hold each other oh so tight.

I'll paint the stars in the evening sky,
Draw the light into your eyes,
A touch of love, a touch of grace,
To softly fall on your moonlit face.

And with this ring our lives will start,
Let nothing keep our love apart.
I'll take your hand to hold in mine,
And be together through all time.

The Third Month of Two Zero One Zero



Insyallah, in less than 4 months, this is how I imagine myself.

Online shopping. Body pampering. Travelling. Cooking. Dress Me Pretty. Studying again?

It will be a different lifestyle altogether, since for the past 6 years, my life has been pretty much about work from Monday till Friday, some family time after work, and on most weekends - hanging out with friends.

It's gonna be different, I know. It would take some time to adjust, but I'm looking forward to it :)

I've discussed with my boss, and all seems well. Alhamdulillah.
The reaction I got from my bosses was not what I expected, and I'm thankful they are quite supportive. I haven't official applied for my unpaid leave yet, but more or less, I think everything will work out just fine.

Except that the HR circular only allows me to take a year maximum throughout my service for the company. So that leaves me with a few other options - to continue my studies or to seek other work opportunities outside.. or become a tai-tai hehe

I haven't decided which path to take yet, but I've got a lot of time to think, at least not until the end of 2010.. It also depends on Mr. H. He hasn't decided on the offer yet, and if he says yes, we might be moving to the west coast. Warmer weather and nearer to Malaysia :)

I don't think I wanna go ahead with the Hawaii trip next month. I don't feel it's right since I'll be leaving just two month after. I've got to start delegating my work to my colleagues and I think it's best for me to be around.

Fiancee has been very supportive throughout the whole planning and decision making.. what works best for me is what's most important he said. *love xoxoxo*

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe


I'm too lazy to write these days, been caught up with a few things:

My TV!!

I noticed a constant purple vertical line on my LCD tv a few days ago.. which is not even a year old!
I called Sharp, and thank god that it was still under warranty, and they got it fixed just today. They changed the whole LCD panel!
According to the technician, if I found out after the warranty expires, might as well I get a new TV, cause the panel is really expensive, around 4-5K!
-Alhamdulillah-

Caterer

I've called Suri Catering 2 Fridays ago, and I'm still waiting for the quotation. The person in charge is still on raya leave -sigh-

Online Store

I'm busy updating my online store. I've got some new stuff in line. So check it out when you're free :)

Wedding Preparations

Still working out the details... 3 months to go! Yikes!

November 23, 2009

One Item Down


Singapore was great.

Although it rained most evening.

Shopping at Orchard was very tempting. But with the exchange rate at 2.45, I refrain myself from spending on anything other than what's on my wedding list.

The sales hasn't started yet, but the Christmas decos are all up. Be-yooo-tee-ful.

Anyway, I got my bedlinens! Yeay!
I picked Sheridan. Although it's expensive, (I can get an LV bag with it!) I'm satisfied. It's not the lacy type everyone normally uses on their wedding day, that's just not me. I'm a minimalist, so simple lines with the touch of elegance is what I go for. Boring as some might say, but I believe that less is more :)

Still working on this particular item on my list..... my wedding dress!

Mr. H has left for the states last night. I won't be seeing him till February..
Insyallah, the last separation before the wedding day :)

November 12, 2009

Why Hasn't He?



I've submitted my leave on 3rd November, and my boss hasn't approved my leave yet till today. I'm going to Johor and then to Singapore until Wednesday. Which leaves me with just one more working day - tomorrow.

Aiyaaaa.... why so susah meh?


This time I'll only be taking 3 days compared to the 2-2.5 weeks I normally take for my overseas trips.

I sent his an reminder through email this morning, I bet he noticed it. What's going on?

Grrrrrr......... let's just wait till tomorrow...

November 10, 2009

Achoooo!



I am having a bad cold and I've been sneezing so much that my eyes are watery and red.
All I want now is to leave the office, head home & take Panadol soluble before I sleep.

I've finish 1/4 box of tissues today, I think.

I don't get colds often, I think this is the first time this year, and when it comes, it can be quite bad.

Triple dose of vitamin C before I go to sleep tonite.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

More Pictures!


The door gifts


The hantaran from the groom-to-be


The hantaran from the bride-to-be.... Me!


The big day - less than 4 months to go!

November 6, 2009

Yahoo, It's Friday!



My weekend plans are:

1. Kursus kahwin @ Pusat Bandar Damansara

It's time.
I'm a little nervous coz I really don't know what to expect, but I heard good reviews of Ustaz Fauzi from the web...
Wish Mr. H & I luck!
Mr. H is back in KL for the course and his sister's wedding next weekend... his last trip to KL before our big day in March 2010. We're trying to squeeze as many things as we can before he heads back to the US.

Wedding prep mood - ON!

2. Another trip to the designer's

I'm gonna check out my wedding dresses' designs at Salikin Sidek. I went to his place last weekend with no clue on how I want my wedding dress to be - except for my nikah which I decided to be a modern kurung. And after some discussion, his designer promised to show me 5-6 designs this weekend. For the groom, I don't think it should be much of a problem.

Hope we'll like it! I decided to give Salikin a try, since some of you recommended him strongly. Thank you babes!

Have a good weekend everyone :)

Et Moi on a Monday

Today, nothing seems right.

I feel depressed,

disturbed,

and upset.


Has there been times when you feel uncomfortable about something?
And you just put it aside as you don't wanna be bringing up unnecessary issues?
But sometimes petty stuff does bother me.. alot.

Am I the only one who feels this way?

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Happy thoughts. Happy thoughts. Happy thoughts.

Aloha!



Destination is tempting. Plus I can shop for my wedding! Woot!

But............ I told Mr. H, 'kalo pergi, takut hitam...'

He said it's gonna be winter, and we can stay out of the sun. haha

It'd be nice to go, and this time there shouldn't be a problem with my leave since it's gonna be in January next year, so I'd have another 22 days...

The only thing is whether my boss will let me go for a week or two...

Maybe I could submit the quarterly report earlier perhaps??
Is SIRIM gonna be auditing us then? Hopefully not!

October 26, 2009

A Few Days Off From Work! *grin*

In November, I'll be going to............

Singapore!




I thought it'd be a good idea to go survey, window shop, and maybe shop, since soon enough I would have to start shopping for my Big Day!
So since I'll be heading down to Johor for my sis-in-law to be's wedding next month, I thought might as well I spend a few days in Singapore.

So one night in Johor and 3 nights in Singapore. Yeayy.



Shopping tips anyone?

A Fun Way to Do IT!

I watched Channel E yesterday, and they were talking about Madonna and how she keeps herself fit, and she owes it all to her personal trainer Tracy Anderson. It does look like Tracy's workouts seem to work really well!

And one of the things she uses for her workouts is.........
............... the WiiFit Plus!

I want a Wii Fit!







I told Mr. H about it, and he said yes, we can get it once I'm in the US. Yeay!! Something to motivate me to exercise :p

Anyway, I was supposed to hit the gym today after work, but I woke up late, and didn't have time to pack my clothes this morning (a lame excuse, I know :p)

I shall get my things ready tonight, so I won't have an excuse tomorrow!

October 16, 2009

TGIF!

It is the best day of the week, because in a few hours, it will be the weekend!

And today is a special day for me since it was my very first time trying nasi kukus!

It was a spur of the moment kinda thing actually. The initial plan was to eat at Nirwana Maju, since it has been a while since I had this good sinful meal. But my colleagues and I ended up at this kedai nasi kukus right above the Bangsar Village basement parking (not the one adjoining the mall, but the one that has a few rows of stalls above it).

--------

Here's the story:
After we found a parking spot, we were so hungry we were talking about food :p As as we were babling about food, food and food, my colleagues and I changed our minds to eat at 'kedai panas' instead. It's not the name of the place, but it's what I call it :p It serves good western food for very cheap. 10bucks for grilled chicken with sidelines in Bangsar. Cheap right? But of course, since it's not in an airconditioned building, so it can be pretty hot at midday. Hence, the 'kedai panas' name :p

As we walked pass a few stalls at the area, we changed our minds (again!). It was because of the aroma of seasoned chicken/ayam rempah from another stall. It was sooooo tempting. And this time we made up our minds to try the nasi kukus and ayam rempah instead!



The nasi kukus and ayam rempah was something we didn't regret. Simply delicious!

And the heavenly meal, we adjourned to BVII. My colleague wanted to check something out at L'occitane. While she was at it, I got something for myself too. Not at L'occitane, but at Haagan Daz! I tried the limited edition flavour. I think the name was berries & cream.

Gosh, I think I weigh a tonne now :p

I am so loving Friday! :)

My Big Project No. 2



The 2 most important things in my to-do list are:

1. Wedding prep
2. Learn how to COOK!

I'm bad at cooking.
Let me rephrase that.
I can't say I'm bad or not, because I don't know how. And I need to learn.... pronto!

I've got less than 6 months to learn, should be enough time, right? *worried*

Since I know some of you are your partner's personal chef, please, please, please share with me your secret!
I've tried googling 'resepi masakan melayu' and there were a number of hits. Not sure which one I should pick.
If you have any recipes you don't mind sharing with me or you know any websites that can help me with this big project of mine, your ideas and thoughts are most welcome!

Some of the things I want to learn how to cook:
1. Nasi lemak & the sambal too
2. Rendang ayam/daging (which one is easier?)
3. Nasi tomato (it's my favorite, so I must learn, right?)
4. Nasi ayam
5. Gulai lemak ayam/daging/ikan masin
6. Ayam masak merah
7. Ayam/Daging/Ikan masak kicap
8. Soto
9. All the other malay dishes you can think of!
10. Oh yeah, dal for the nasi tomato too :p

The simpler, the better. But of course, sedap :)

Cruise or No Cruise



What was suppose to be a cruise around Putrajaya lake, became a tour around Putrajaya city :p

--- On the final day before the delegates left, an arrangement to go on a cruise around Putrajaya was done by the Secretariat of the meeting. My colleague and I decided to take her car instead of going on the bus for no reason actually. Sajer jer.

So the bus went off first, we left Bangsar about 15 mins later by car - in her 335i, thinking we would be able to catch up with them in no time. But luck wasn't on our side even at the start of the journey and we couldn't find the new highway. The highway was suppose to take us to Putrajaya fast (I can't remember the name of the highway though) but we lost our way and we took the Sungai Besi highway instead.

And to add to that, a colleague of mine (who was already in Putrajaya) gave us wrong info, saying that we were to meet at the mosque in Precint 4, which in actually fact was Precint 1. It was actually the lake right smack in the center of Putrajaya; at the mosque and PM's office - a VERY important detail he forgot to tell us.

So we went round Putrajaya trying to find a mosque at Precint 4. The GPS didn't help much, since we didn't have any details whatsoever, except for Precint 4. No street name, no landmark, no POI (Points of Interest).

And so we spent 1/2 hour going around Putrajaya by land instead of by water like the others. What a day. We managed to find the lake at about 20 minutes before the cruise was over.

Cruise or no cruise, we had fun going on our very own treasure hunt :p

October 11, 2009

Good Food is Hard To Resist

Last Tuesday & Wednesday, I was out of the office to attend an inaugural meeting with the delegates from Asia & West Pacific to discuss a few issues on ESI Restructuring. The venue was the The Gardens Hotel, KL. A few of us (including myself) was given the duty as a rapporteur to put on paper the issues raised during the discussions of the country papers presented by the delegates.

So as always, one of the good things about these events/meetings, I get to indulge myself in good hotel food and 5-star accomodation on the company's tab.

It was my first time dining at The Spread. Food is quite good if you ask me. The spread was quite extensive which includes oysters too. Yum. I didn't wanna stuff myself too much as there was gonna be an afternoon session (can't afford to fall asleep) but yeah, 3 rounds of food + a bowl of ice-cream was what I had :)



After lunch, I went up to the room to freshen myself, and hopped onto the scale. I started to touch 50 kilos about 2 months ago, and I still am in the 50s. 51.5 to be specific as of last Tuesday. I'm quite happy with my weight, although some clothes I have are a bit tight now :p



Since the puasa month is over, I'm gonna start being a little healthier by hitting the gym!

October 9, 2009

A Year Old Tomorrow!

The Purchase



This was the purchase I made at Harvey Norman last month.
An off-white Belgium luxury shaggy 8' x 10' carpet for my bedroom.

Just Purrfect.

Sneek Peek

Here are a few shots taken by Mr. H's relative during our engagement ceremony....
I will post more when I get the photos from my photographer :)

Saturday, 3rd October 2009 / 14 Syawal 1430M
3:00 p.m.

Kelana Jaya, Selangor










October 5, 2009

Alhamdulillah

I am now officially Mr. H's fiance :)

September 25, 2009

Wait A Minute, I Need To Prepare My Checklist!

I was going to write about my purchase at Harvey Norman, but that can wait.

I just applied 2 days leave for next Thursday and Friday for the upcoming ceremony which is just around the corner! Yikes! Time flies!

Anyway, since the office is quiet (it's pretty much empty except for my big boss who is Chinese and another Indian colleague who are around), I thought of taking some time off to drop by at Choffles, a cake shop in Damansara Perdana. The cakes on their website look kinda pretty, so Mr. H, who just got back from Johor yesterday, wants to go check it out. So to Choffles we go.



Some of the other things I need to do before the ceremony:

1. To make an appointment with my dentist on the 1st
2. Mani/pedi on the 2nd - any recommendations for a good and cheap place?
3. To confirm/remind time with the photographer, and those doing my makeup, hantaran, and mini pelamin
4. The caterer will be taken care by my mom

I hope I didn't miss anything.

Tick-tock. Tick-tock.

September 24, 2009

Raya Purchase!


I've been looking for the perfect one for quite sometime. I did find a few I liked at Harvey Norman, Mid Valley earlier this year, but at that time, I wasn't prepared to splurge on one yet. I did go in a few stores to check out, but nothing really caught my attention. Plus, I was more focused on getting other stuff in my list.

And yesterday, I knew I saw what I wanted, and I got it right away :)

I'll tell you more in my next post :)

September 18, 2009

Raya Greetings



The office is pretty empty today. There are only 14 of us in my department, and half of them are already on leave. And at this moment I am in my L.A.Z.Y mode.
It's only 9:37 a.m. but it feels as though I've been sitting at my desk for a whole day.
Good thing it's Friday, and I have a fairly long lunch break :)

Right now all I can think about is the great spread of food this raya - rendang, lontong, laksa johor, kuah kacang, and everything else (can't be listing it all, it's gonna make me hungry!)

Anyway, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Eid Mubarak.

Selamat Hari Raya.
Maaf Zahir Batin.


September 16, 2009

Oh Dear!


I went to my tailor yesterday for fitting. I made 3 baju kurungs this year. 2 baju kurung modern and 1 baju kurung pesak.

And guess what?
I can't fit in 2 of them! Yikes! I gained 5 kilos for your info over the past 3 months. I thought I was gonna shed a few during this puasa month, but to no avail :(

And to add on that, one of my tops is a pink chiffon, and as I was struggling to get myself into it (in denial that I could actually fit into it,which I did in the end after alot of struggling), I ended up with lipstick and powder marks on the baju!
And to take it off was another problem, even harder actually!
Now I have to get it to the dry cleaners before I get to wear it for raya!!

Sigh.

My tailor will make some alterations and hopefully I can fit into them. I'll be picking up the pieces tomorrow.

Wish me luck!

Designer Dilemma

One of the things that would be on your to-do list, 6 months before your wedding is to find that perfect dress.

I know that I've still got ample time... but I have to start somewhere right?


I've started buying the magazine 'Pengantin', surf some blogs and websites, to get some ideas of what I like, what I want and of course, what is within my budget.

I haven't met any designers in person, except for Salleh, from Citra SACC. I've always liked the dresses from Butik Citra, but whether I want to part with my money to get the dresses here is something I have to think about.

I probably need 3 dresses for the ceremony I think, make that 4, including the 'majlis bertandang' but I'm not gonna think about that just yet.

Here are some of the designers that I came across so far. As you can see, I don't have an extensive list :p I haven't really done my homework on this yet and I haven't asked around.
So to those who've had experience or any recommedations, I hope you don't mind sharing!

Butik Citra
Nik Irwan Roseli
Rizman Ruzaini
Zery Zamry
Lynda Rahim
Salikin Sidek (I went to the boutique in SACC, but I wasn't really attracted to any of his designs there, but his price range seems reasonable, anyone knows?)
Hatta Dolmat (I've heard some not so good reviews about working with him, but I really don't know)

Hope you guys can give me a tip or two! Please!
Thanks dearies.

2 Weeks to Raya (Which Has Nothing To Do With My Post)


I haven't read the book, but I've heard so many good reviews about it. And that is why, I'm just gonna do it the easy way - just catch the movie (although they say the story line is a bit different, but never mind).

But I have to wait for another month, it's only gonna be out on the 1st of October!

September 3, 2009

Jangan Cha Jangan Cha


I was listening to FLY.fm on the way to work just now and the DJs were talking about Google Translate, something new from Google. So what the DJs did was translate a few English songs to Malay, and sang the malay version on air!

Totally hilarious!

Some of the lyrics that really tickled my funny bone was this!

The Pussycat Dolls - Don't Cha

[Chorus]
Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me
Don't you wish your girlfriend was a freak like me
Don't cha
Don't cha
Don't you wish your girlfriend was raw like me
Don't you wish your girlfriend was fun like me
Don't cha (haah aah)
Don't cha

Translation: English > Malay from Google Translate:

Tidakkah kau berharap pacarmu itu panas seperti saya
Tidakkah kau berharap pacarmu adalah seorang aneh seperti saya
Jangan cha
Jangan cha
Tidakkah kau berharap pacarmu itu masih mentah seperti saya
Tidakkah kau berharap pacarmu menyenangkan seperti saya
Don't cha (haah aah)
Jangan cha

:p

September 1, 2009

Surprise!



Mr. H is coming back earlier than planned. 2 weeks earlier that is :)
So he will be in Malaysia for 4 and a half weeks!

He will be touching down at 22:30 this Saturday :)
Yeayy!

The Heir to the Throne



I was reading 'Hello' and this was one of the highlights. Here's another update on Prince William's love story.............

LONDON - Prince of Wales William and his long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton, both 27, are said to have reached “an understanding” that their eight-year relationship will end in marriage.

Here's the fully story ---- Prince William & Kate Middleton

Five and a Half and Counting

Another 5 and a half hours to go, but I'm already thinking about f.o.o.d.

For those who knows me well, they would know that I have this thing for colored rice. Name it - nasi ayam, nasi tomato, nasi kahwin, nasi beringin, nasi beriyani.... I loike!



But my all time favorite would be nasi tomato. And I search high and low for the best nasi tomato during the fasting month (well, maybe I am exaggerating a bit here) And when Ramadhan came, I got an sms from a friend:-

"Its nasi tomato season again! Selamat Berpuasa!"

And I had a conversation with a friend at work:

Friend: So, how's puasa? Makan nasi tomato laa kan?
Me: Well, puasa's ok. Nasi tomato, not yet.
Friend: What? You haven't gone to the pasar ramadhan to cari your nasi tomato yet?
Me: Errrr.. not yet.

Guess I talk about nasi tomato too much :p

August 22, 2009

Work is Still Part of My Agenda

I am spending the first day of Ramadhan at home. The weather is cool and wet, just perfect to cool down the hot climate of ours. A perfect way of starting this holy month. Amin.

Last Saturday, the last weekend before the fasting month, I made a trip to the mall with the focus on just getting work clothes. I am still working and I need clothes, so I am not spending unecessary (I'm trying to make myself feel less guilty of shopping) :p

I managed to get myself a few items at G2000. In specific, 5 shirts and 2 pants. I'm happy with the amount I had to pay thanks to the sale. If they were not on sale, the total bill would have come up to RM1822. Money well spent! I haven't been doing any impusive buyings even though its the Mega Sale season (although it can be veryyy tempting), but so far, I'm doing just fine.
I only planned to get some shirts and pants, so that was done. After that, I got hungry and decided to treat my mom at Charms, and we got on the wrong floor, and I saw Cuffz, and you guessed right, I walked in. I've been to the store in BSC but that was my first time in One Utama. And the cufflinks were on SALE. All of them had a 30% discount from the normal price.
And I decided to grab these two.


For moi.


And one for Mr. H. Or should I just keep it for myself? hehe

August 21, 2009

J'aime Paris



I've heard quite a bit about Annick Goutal's fragrances; a top-end French perfume.

Price ranges from around RM350 (50ml EDT I think) to RM1000. A grand is how much you have to spend to own your very own beautiful butterfly bottle that is lacquered with natural pearls with a gold-painted butterfly on top. I heared that you can refill the bottle though. So that's a plus point.

But would I pay that much for a perfume? Definitely no. I don't know about you though :)

Anyway, I haven't really made it a point to pay their store a visit. They have quite a range of perfumes. 20 over if I'm not mistaken. As far as I know, the only one is in Le Meridien, KL, but this brand is also available in these anchor stores - Parkson, Pavillion and Isetan KLCC.

Tempted to try?

I do wonder how these expensive perfumes smell like.

Bulan Mulia Sudahpun Tiba



Saya ingin mengambil kesempatan ini untuk mengucapkan selamat menunaikan ibadat puasa kepada semua kaum muslimin and muslimat.

Semoga bulan Ramadhan tahun ini lebih baik daripada tahun sebelumnya, insyallah.

I Can Hear It Growl


I am fasting today.

I didn't have anything for sahur except some leftover chicken crackers from yesterday and a bottle of mineral water.

I am so hungryy! There was a farewell breakfast for a Senior VP that will be retiring the end of this month and a steamboat for lunch for the ones involved in the preparation of an assessment held last week (that includes me). Quite hard to resist the temptation, but proud to say, I am still holding on!

Now I'm thinking of what to have for buka, nasi with lauk or fast food. Burger King maybe? I'm a sucker for the Black Pepper burger and the Whopper. At this point of time, everything seems delicious.

Ok, ok enough about food. Let me get back to work. The best distraction over food!

Dinner East Coast Style


Last night my granduncle hosted a dinner party at his home in Damansara Heights to welcome some relatives of ours who came for a visit from South Africa. I know the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions South Africa are people with very dark colored skin, curly hair, basically you know what I mean.

But my relatives are Malays; known as Cape Malays and they have features similar to the Arabs. I didn't take any photos of them. The pics are in my cousin's camera. Sorry :)

Anyway, we had fun getting to know each other (there are my dad's second cousins) and of course, food was always part of the agenda. My grand aunty made her super-duperlicious nasi dagang Terengganu as the main course. I'm not a fan of nasi dagang at all, whether it's from Kelantan or Terengganu, but hers is excellent.

Nothing can go wrong with good food, don't you think? :)

Oh Why BB Why?



Something's wrong with my BB.

I noticed it last Sunday when a few calls that came in and the ones I made were interrupted by this annoying sound (the same sound you get when you're on the line and there's another phone nearby), but this time it is a constant sound with a 5 second pause in between. It went on for 5 minutes and the phone just went dead.

I thought it was my battery at first, but it happened again yesterday and today. All calls can't be more than 5 minutes, then my BB will just turn off. i tried reinserting my battery and SIM, but the same problem persist.

Since Sunday, I told Mr. H to call me on my fixed line at home and at the office, so I guess this 012-2010xxx I'm carrying can't be something I can rely on for now; until I figure out what's wrong with my BB. Good thing I have my 019 active - my good ol' office cellphone.

Up, up and Away

The movie I find really cute is 'Up' and it will finally reach our shores this weekend. Yeay!




Although I try to refrain myself from being in any enclosed area with alot of people as much as I can i.e clubs, cinemas, I'm still planning to catch this; wearing a mask of course. I'm a little paranoid with the swine flu pandemic. Every cough and sneeze gets my attention now (including my own).

I bought a bunch of masks from Guardian MV; I heard it's out of stock now last weekend. I'm not sure when they plan to get them restocked. Anyway, just a precaution and to be on the safe side. Better safe than sorry right?

I'm at the office now and I can't wait to leave work. 3/4 of the office are out for audits, courses and some are on leave.

Speed up oh dear time!
