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-
