And selamat haru raya korban semua. And selamat cuti panjang Selangor people. I'm working tomorrow though. Malas lah nak cuti. Bukan nak pi mana pun. Went back to JB for hari raya. Planned to slaughter a sacrifical lembu for Emma, huhu. Sekali budget lari daa. InsyaAllah, tahun depan ada lah rezeki Emma.
At Papa's 60th birthday dinner at Tera-Thai, JB.
At Rayyan Bubble Laundry.
1st- I have always cried at weddings. Once, I attended a church wedding of mummy's friend's daughter and I cried. At both my sister's wedding I cried. So naturally I thought I'd cry at my very own, but no! Zufri did, though. Heh heh.
2nd-When I was pregnant, I cried watching Rachel giving birth. I even cried reading about birthing experiences. But did I cry when Emma was born? Hell no. I mean I did try, but if I did succeed it'd just seem so fake, kan? Haha so I went with my instinct and laughed instead and said "Hello (bukan nak kata Assalamualaikum hehe), do you remember me?". Did not shed a tear.
3rd-When Ujie said her heart broke and how she bawled her eyes out on her way to work the first time she left Maryam, I prepared myself for an all out tear fest. After all, I am (or perhaps used to be) a Drama Queen kan. But again, no. I actually felt (jangan bagitau Zufri tau!) quite relieved to be able to be on my own for 8 hours daily. But of course I can't wait to get home to be with her, but whatever. Haha kejam.
Yelah, lain orang lainlah ragamnya. But so you know, I REALLY wanted to cry at the 3 most important events of my life so far. Too bad they didn't happen. Hahaha. Happy Wednesday!
p/s : Wednesday is my most favourite day.
Although I did find it cute and eventually bought one for her, hehe. Muka dia juga ada sedikit sebanyak rashes, probably from my milk.
Mooooving on, this is Emma nursing hihihi. Sangat comel.
The following two pictures are of Emma sleeping. I do not know why the heck does she sleep like that! The second picture makes her look like she's dancing, kan? Ni during afternoon naps, when she's not swaddled.
Ini seorang Emma yang sangat chubby. Macam Sin Chan pun ada jugak, kan? Hohoho.
Ini masa berendoi. Habis rambut Emma ditarah-tarah sesuka hati. Kami tak cukur licin. Ikutkan aku cukur licin bagus sikit, nampak kemas. Mak Zufri tak mau. Biarlah. Dia yang sponsor sume, ikut je lah. Hahaha.
Kikiki lepas cukur jambul kena pakai bedak sejuk. Bouncer tu moyang dia yang bagi. Semoga panjanglah umurnya.
And finally, a closest to smiling picture yang sempat ditangkap.
Selamat berpuasa kepada semua. Semoga Ramadhan ini lebih baik daripada yang lepas-lepas.
So we went to Alamanda instead. Hohoho. Then I'm cooking dinner for some friends tonight. Can't wait. Hope they like what I prepared. Hope they eat meat. Well maybe except for Anies. Dia can vegetarian.
7 perkara tentang saya..
1. I love red. And black. I bought a pair of bright red bootees and mittens for my baby. Hohoho. 2. I walk to and from work everyday, so I'm not really affected by the sharp rise of petrol prices. I am, however affected by the rise in global food prices caused by the rise of petrol prices.
3. I like sniffing my food. And licking my lips and fingers after purposely leaving saki baki makanan di situ to begin with.
4. I like starting a new hobby, only to abandon the hobby after say... one month. Currently on sketching. Previous hobbies include knitting (hohoho what was I thinking? Susah gila!), running (training for a half marathon, in fact. Had to stop due to pregnancy), gardening, cooking. Hahaha very domestic hobbies. No wonder..
5. When I die, Papa and Pipi gets my insurance money. Haha Zufri gets nothing.
6. I wanted to get engaged on my birthday, but it was a friday so I postponed to the 19th. And we had wanted to get married on Zufri's birthday (9th Nov.) tapi si Pipi pulak tengah exam! So we shifted to a week later, 16th November. Takde simboliknya tarikh tu.
7. I had trouble accepting criticism. I still have, in fact but only from certain people.
7 perkara menakutkan saya
1. Flying cockroaches.
2. Dying a tragic death, ie of a car accident
3. Suddenly being spontaneous and did something stupid that would land me in jail and ruining my whole future.
4. Giving birth. Hahaha.
5. Growing old alone. Yeah that and dying alone, only to be found by my neighbour a week after.
6. Aku takut kena buang keja. Hahaha.
7. Aku juga takut aku terberanak di ofis.
7 lagu buat masa ini
Oh, buat masa ni takde. But I have all-time favourites!
2.9 Crimes & Blower's Daughter - Damien Rice
3.Cocoon & Banana Pancakes - Jack Johnson (Well almost his whole album sebenarnya)
4.Happy Ending - Mika
5.Country House & No Distance Left To Run - Blur!! And their albums up till The Great Escape

7 perkara yang amat bernilai
1-5. My family (tak ternilai sebenarnya)
6. My good (Alhamdulillah) health.
7. Friends who truly understand me, and have been with me through thick and thin
Haha I don't own much expensive things lah. But I guess you already know.
7 pertama kali dalam hidup
Semua benda kenalah ada kali pertama kan. Tak faham motif soalan. Hahaha
1. Kali pertama bercinta, bertukar menjadi kali pertama berkahwin hin.(choy touch wood) meaning I married my first and only boyfriend.
2. Kali pertama aku rasa baby aku tendang was in my hmm fifth month kot.
3. Kali pertama aku beli album adalah kaset P.Ramlee. Muahahaha.
4. CD pulak Boyzone. Huhu. I still remeber listening to their album everyday without fail after sahur with Kak Peachy. Her's was ermm Soul Asylum I think. Hohoho who would've guessed, huh?
5. The first (and hopefully only) time I appeared on television was as an extra on RTM's short lived 'Man Digital'. Hohohoho. Seriously.
6. The first time (as far as I remember) I said I Love You to my mummy was at the airport. She wouldn't let me go unless I said I love you too. Sadly I didn't get to say it that often. In fact rasanya macam tak pernah cakap I love you to Papa, except on birthday cards. Pathetic, huh? But they know how much I love them.
7. The first time I saw my current place, I fell in love. Chewah.
7 orang bertuah
1. Pipi Doo
4. Wan Rose
Hohoho korang ni bukannya boleh harap, so I ain't gonna tag anyonelah.
Oh and by the way, during my UM years, I stayed in jeng jeng jeng..7th College! Yay! And 7's Nadia's favourite number! Andddd I wanna have 7 kids! Not! Gila.
1-I'm no longer a nine-o-niner! Sold of my whitey mighty kelisa weezer about a month ago, and received myvida loca 3 weeks ago (roughly). Went car-less for a week, but wasn't really affected because when do I ever drive anyway? Zufri's very anal about me driving, for some reason. I think I'm a better driver than him, but don't we all, ey?
Nobody offered me a seat in the LRT! Honestly, these people. Ughh. I could never catch their eye because everyone seemed to concentrate either on their handphones or at their reflection on the err cermin tingkap. Sheesh. Those who weren't diverted their eyes as soon as we made contact. Huh. Sudahlah. Tunggulah nanti korang mengandung mcmana. Korang tu hari-hari naik LRT pegi kerja.
Work's been the same. Can't complain. Can't praise, either. I don't feel I'm growing professionally. And I didn't get a pay rise or even a bonus. Sigh. Well at least I'm doing less job for more money, plus more time in the morning and after work, hee hee. Doesn't matter that I don't go out that much anymore.
I'm thinking of having a small get together with close friends for my birthday in two weeks, and I'm trying to think of a suitable menu. I'd welcome all kinds of suggestions, but preferably nothing like kari or asam pedas or gulai or anything like that because I truly suck at cooking food like that. I'd take ages, and something will surely go wrong. For dessert I can bake a cake and make some agar-agar. Maybe some alfredo for the main course and if nak local food, then sambal ikan ke, daging ke. Chewah. Ye ye je. Tengokla macamana. Apa-apa nanti aku inform korang ye.
So alritey then. Happy New Year and have a pleasant holiday!
I wonder what it'd be like downstairs. Will I lose contact with my friends up here? Will they even remember me? Well at least I'll be seated very near the stairs. Again.
I just finished episodes 1-5 Season 4 of Grey's Anatomy. Can't wait to finish season 4 and proceed to heroes before catching ANTM Cycle 9. Apa lagi ek ada. Oh Brothers & Sisters Seasons 1&2. Yang ni aku tak terjebak lagi. Tak taula menepati citarasa aku atau tak. Tak pernah dapat follow pun dekat TV. I reckon I'll finish watching everything hopefully by my birthday. Haha shamelessly reminding everyone of my birthday.
I'm not feeling as tired and as sleepy as the past few days, and I just realized why. Because I'm an Aquarius, and starting from yesterday I was in my element. Haha.
I was awe struck by the superb performances I saw yesterday. They have certainly gone a long way since my time, and their budget is much much bigger nowadays. My (ex)college was placed third, both for the Tarian Asli and Tarian Kreatif. Esok nak pergi tengok pop band pulak. Haha.
Today for breakfast I made sardin in cheese pita. Teramatlah lazatnya. Did I already tell you that I spend practically nothing everyday? I mean, I sometimes walk to work so I save on parking walaupun hanya RM2.00. I have breakfast at home, so I save around RM4.00. And I tapau my breakfast as both a snack and lunch so I save yet another RM5.00. So instead of spending RM11.00 everyday, I spend on RM1.60 on milo ais when I reach the office kerana sangat haus oi berjalan ke tempat kerja.
Sebenarnya aku taklah tergila-gilakan sangat berjalan ke ofis segala ni. In fact, I was prepared to drive to work today. Butttttt.....my sister lost the car keys, and I can't take the other car because it's blocked by the keyless car. Sighh..aku start jalan pukul 8:25 tadi. Haruslah sampai lewat.
About the lunch yesterday kan, lupa nak cakap yang rasanya amatlah melazatkan. In fact, I think I had two helpings. I took two portions of the fish head dan aku sebat udang dan sotong sampai habis.
And my best friend got pregnant. Haha now what are the odds of that ever happening?!
Wakakaka. Itu pasal tak boleh pegi rumah Kak Peachy selalu, pasal nanti loots tak banyak. Kumpul banyak-banyak baru best. Rasa macam baru balik shopping, padahal baru balik rumah dia.
Malam ni ada tarian kreatif. Yay!
Selasa haritu aku ngan Anies pegi tengok boria fest. seni kat DTC. Aku biasa je la tapi of course Anies sangat semanagt, pasal dia otai boria (kononnya lah).
Daripada dulu, sampai la ni (sketsa boria kena speaking utara) aku tak tau awatlah sketsa 7 macam haram. Bodoh piang. Kitorang duduk dalam kawasan penyokong kolej lawan, tapi sebelum start tu kitorang sorak gak gila-gila. Malu uih. Pasal sangat bangang. Lepas tu dia punya step boria nya pun macam taik kongkong. Lepas kitorang selidik, rupanya budak-budak tu buat step dan lagu sendirik. Dahlah ada intermission yang takde kaitan langsung dengan lagu!
Sangat buruk. Sangat memalukan. Sangat bangang. Sangat jijiks. But we had fun laughing like mad at the dancers.
Aku suka 9 punya sketsa, pasal diorang dari dulu memang sangat kelakar. 2nd pulak buat sketsa yang sama, year after year. Ada mak sorang, anak tiga orang. Sorang mat rempit, sorang amek dadah, sorang lagik jadik pondan. Lepas diorang ni sume pakai lagu dan koreografi yang sama je every year, so diorang polish jek lah diorang nya step.
Kesimpulannya, tahun depan pegilah tengok boria time festival seni because even if the performances suck, at least you still get a good laugh out of it.
Jumaat nak pegi tengok tarian asli pulak. Kali ni pegi ngan dancers pulak, Dayang & Alif (tapi takleh nak kutuk pasal Alif & Dayang amek serius. How boring)
Never knowing,shocking but we're nothing. We're just moments,we're clever but clueless,we're just human..
Aamusing and confusing. We're helping rebulding and we're growing. Never know.
Sila kembali dalamasa 1 bulan.
No no no. None of the above. I'm only 25, we've been together for only 4 years and I don't parade my love life for others to see. So why such a statement? And why am I making such a big fuss about that statement? I have absolutely no idea why. Just sort of pisses me off. I get pissed off easily nowadays. Especially to Zufri. Kesian.
Oh well. Back to JB for the (long) weekend.
ps:I have a new breakfast routine nowadays. Now I eat my breakfast at home, while catching the first season of the O.C. on ch 711 (8:00-9:00). Usually half of it because I drive to work at 8:30, but today I watched the whole thing and ended up clocking in at 9:15! So I have to go home only at 6:15. Hahaha. The O.C! I'm hooked!
ps2:Congratulations Nannoor. Baby kau sangat comel!
Hehe semalam time siap-siap nak pergi kerja, aku potong lagi fringe aku ni. Sekali terpotong terpendek, dan terbanyak sangat! Wakakaka. Bongoks sungguh. Tapi taklah sependek Pheobe (Charmed) pada satu ketika. Hehe.
I'm thinking of doing something to my hairlah, but what yeah? Dah 2 tahun rambut aku macam ni saja. Give me some suggestions lah. Apa-apa jua.
Cepat-cepat tau. Aku tunngu suggestion dari korang. Kalau takde suggestion jugak, aku call sorang-sorang. Ingat aku tak tau sapa baca blog aku? Hahahaha.
Have a nice weekend!
Geez how I struggled to complete that first paragraph! I'm so not a current affairs writer, hehe. I need to brush up on my politics and general knowledge. Masalahnya bila berbincang dengan orang pasal politik ni, diorang suka sangat conspiracy theories. Ada saja konspirasi itu dan konspirasi ini. And all the talk about this connection and that connection. And name dropping! What's up with that? Oh, Dato' ni dan Datin ni. Eurghh.
And then there are of course people who think they know everything, and always have an opinion about whatever. Like yesterday I was told by someone not to drink air kelapa. "Hek eleh. Apahal lak takleh minum air kelapa?", was my exact reply, hehe. Pasal air kelapa tajam. Huh? Ada ke bukti-bukti saintifik yang menyokong ayat anda? Never heard that one before. But then again, I don't know a lot of the old pantang larang tok nenek. Jangan makan watermelon lah, jangan makan nenas lah, jangan tu lah, jangan ni lah. Kalau aku tanya kenapa kan, mesti orang kata makanan tu tajam. Tajam mendenye?
Ngarut siot pantang-pantang larang ni. Ish tak relevan langsung kisah-kisah aku ni.
Anyway, besok dah hari Jumaat! Yay!
We have this tradition of calling each other up on birthdays at the stroke of midnight, not only to wish happy birthday, but to sing a birthday song complete with asking how old are you nowwwwww. And of course the birthday girl/boy would have to sing back (regardless of where they are) I'm 59 tooodaayyyy! And I totally forgot all about it!
Arghhhh!!!! I remember my birthday during my 3rd year, urmm, in 2004. I was at mapley 223 with anies and 7th futsal team together with Zufri. Tiba-tiba Kak Peachy datang bawak cake, then nyanyi ramai-ramai kat mapley. Wakakakaka. Tau jek lah orang-orang yang pegi tempat tu orang yang bagaimana. Gerenti kitorang mendapat kutukan yang kaw-kaw. Anyway, tu pun pasal mummy paksa. Hahaha.
So anyway, berbalik to Kak Yen, bukan saja tu. Semalam pun merupakan anniversary dia yang ke 3. Arghhh. How do I tackle this problem ey? Dahlah last year I even forgot Zufri's birthday. Is this a sign that nobody's going to remember my birthday?! Oh nooooooooo!!!!!!!
We were actually trying to come up with the deposit (3+1 OK! RM3,800! Gila ke nak deposit banyak-banyak?). Sekali yesterday as we passed "our" house, we noticed that the phone number's taken down and worse, some stranger was cleaning the house up! Sigh..
So back to house-hunting! I wish I could afford to just buy a house. Rent's just way too high here.
Anyway, how was your new year celebration? I was already asleep, but I woke up at 11:50, headed downstairs only to find the boys watching X-Men. Then when the fireworks started, the boys went bakar mercun pulak outside. So I got to see the fireworks on TV, but still hear the loud sounds live. Hahaha. Bongoks.
Alritey folks. Have fun!
Oh. And I love Britney's new single, Piece Of Me. Hahaha.
