Shopaholic goes movie!

I remember my girl friend, reynna introduced the Sophie Kinsella’s books. Since then, I couldn't put down any of the Shopaholic series. ngehehe..and my sister told me that the series now goes movie yay! why I always be the last to know a good news? But anyway, another hilarious-super fab movie (erk..for a fan like moi!) now filming. Though we know that the movie will not be exactly like the book ( like always) but I can’t wait...best..best sgt!..hmm..but the movie is filming in NYC, when the actual story was set up in England…or maybe they are combining the books?

Deal..Deal..Deal

Deal ..Deal..Deal

I have started my day earlier than other weekend and we rushed out to meet my future tenure. At first, I felt a bit uncertain to agree with the contract because there was some problem with the payment and the condition of the unit. But after some discussion, and hubby was concerning my extended travel (because my office was shifted to Bukit Raja), we then have the deal! So by tomorrow I will packing my stuff to move out to our first own house..hahaha..ok..

i love choc muffin


To celebrate, we had our lunch at Kenny Roger’s. Surprisingly, one boutique owner called and with half an hour notice, he wanted to have a meeting with me. gile..Luckily, I always have my sample of piece in my car. So terpaksa la makan cepat2 kan..


The tauke seems like my collection, but he wanted to take a look some more. So, by next week I have to get ready with more collection. I do really hope will have the deal. Amin..

At the afternoon, hubby pula has his discussion with contractor at Cyberjaya. Although I am not so familiar with this place, I have promised to accompany. I didn’t know any of the animals they are discussing or maybe I have heard something like ‘papan tanda’ /road / or bridge? (hubby is working at Road Department, Public Work Department) But I hope hubby will have his deal. So, boring la kan..tapi keje saya dah selesai.kena la teman die pula..




sedang meneliti peta cyberjaya..tgk pun pening.






Actually at the same time, the BIG boss also lepak kat sini. When I say Big Boss, thats mean the Minister of Work- Dato'Ir Md Zin (successor Dato' Seri Samy Vellu), saw him and other members kat meja lain..rasa nk je snap gambar (excited biase la..excited jumpe boss hubby) tapi, since nanti poyo, takpe la. But we pass by at surau sebelah Padi Hse tu.

good bye PJ office

Today is my last day at office PJ. We will be moving out to our HQ, effective this Monday. So I was busy contacting all my suppliers to inform this news. Of course most of them said “ alaa..Bukit Raja ke? Jauhnya..” and I replied “ tu la Mr Alex, I pun jauh nak travel ni..” hehe..
Certainly, I will miss this place..cheh..all this while rasa tak nak je masuk office..but I dunno why today I feel a bit cheerless...

the exhibition area

Because of workload, I did my packing last minute. Terkocoh2..tapi muke selamba je..and adalah a bundle of paper yang saya tinggalkan macam invoices / company profile yang lama2 tu.. and I found the copy of my first letter ( I think it is a Certificate of Practical Completion) to contractors. Ingat lagi, inila first assignment yang my supervisor minta buatkan.hehe..kelaka sangat masa tuh, CPC pun saya taktau And I notice the date was 7th September 2005...gosh..Time goes really fast. Suddenly its reminds me when I was called for this position interview, my friend bagi instruction and I translate it to maps..hehe, rasa kelaka sangat masa tu..and my first day pun memang blank sangat..tak pernah kenal medical equipment ni, kena study balik..but it was a nice experience..


tshirt ofis, mcm hari keluarga

So today we did the last checking, to ensure that nothing left out..alaaa..I will miss this place for several reasons;
1) My office yang selesa..lepas ni kena duk kat lab..Amcare Lab namanya..erkk..
2) Oldtown PJ
3) Parking yang selesa

Speaking about parking yang selesa, guard kat building ni baik2 belaka..ada sorang guard, budak mude indonesian semua parking orang pun dia letak tanda kerusi..hehe..rajin. I told hubby, and I was suggested belanja la die..So ade la sekali tu bagi die kuih pagi “beli untuk kamu” cheh..saya terasa baik hati.

teddy wanna say bye2


So, after all the stuffing, takde keje..lepak je la hari ni..To celebrate my last day kat office PJ, I had my lunch with finie..kat food foundry, seksyen 17. The food really fine, western menu. Kedai ni biasa2 je, tapi ada branch kat US..www.foodfoundry.us . Yang kelaka nya, chef dia asik memantau kitorang makan..dah la macam bonzer. Tak sedap pun, jadi sedap..tapi memang sedap la..(p/s recommended)

hope everything will be just fine..good luck to my team!

i saw a rainbow

The traffic was crawling, very slowly when I was about heading to workplace. But the sun shines so bright, not as usual. Perhaps, it was raining cats and dogs last night. 'catadoupe'. Whatever.

Suddenly, I saw a rainbow..yes..a R A I N B O W !
It was quite some times that I didn’t see this gorgeous spectrum of colors
Hehe..hehehe..
The rainbow made my day!


Somewhere over the rainbow..
Skies are blue...
And the dreams that you dare to dream...
Really do come true ..

It's a little gift from heaven.
Life is beautiful.

Hello Fantastico

Forget about medical equipment stuff..Hello Fantastico..

I never thought building a website would be this fun. And I am really into it! Especially playing (I am trial and error) with softwares / products in Fantastico . I am residing myself with this project (my baby project) for the past 3 weeks. After my domain hosting was activated, naaa I start challenge myself to build this website on my own..But we will see..how much time it is gonna take for me to launch the website..hihi

But frankly, I never heard Fantastico before. When I browse Internet and found this package I know that it will benefit me. I love this virtual universe so much! Always give a benefit to everybody. Anyway, Fantastico will automate installation of various web applications;

1) Photo Sharing <-- image galleries
2)E commerce <-- Shopping cart software
3) Scripts <-- php and the family.. Uninteresting..
And so forth…
Please be inform that Fantastico runs on cPanel platform (memang byk kena ingat) So,I will zoom and concentrate on stuff that I will use for my project aje.. E- commerce.

Fun..fun..this is cool.. I modified the template with colors (why all the templates using boring design, so yesterday!) .. and I paint here, there and oopss careful with the brush.. I think I love decorating. Gifted..ngehehe..Browsing some flowers image..this gonna be spanking..The box should placed here..or there..and when I preview it..weh takkan pink sangat..Must amend some part..will added other pastel c o l o r s..ernie! hahah..

Wallla.. my templates are now ready..It is time for me to configure it, so it will look like a store..(not a flower store though) an online store. Store ape, rahsia dulu..So, I am dealing with constructing an E-commerce website. No more painting or decorating now. At first, I am blank. Blur and I have no knowledge at all! So I take initiative to learn through the tutorial. I browse again, search for Zen Cart tutorial (because I am using Zen Cart – a shopping cart software). The tutorials give me the step by step understanding (and headache) on how to configure the online store. From adding product attributes, to payment modules..and shipping tax ( I don’t think I need it for this time..takde la hebat sgt kan..biase2 je dulu) and I must be aware of my future database..I have to master on how to house-keeping them.

Honestly, memang agak memecahkan kepala..no wonder people employ other to build their website..even a simple web yang ada company profile je..Me? I am the one yang beriya2 nak buat sendiri. So I believe anything that we choose to start, we meant to finish..sed.. but, I'm proud of myself.

So guys..wish me luck..and here is a little preview..


why is it hard to say "No"?

can you...

can you....

can you....


No..sorry... I cant.. I am fully occupied...


Yes...anything?

Earth Hum

My sisters and I have the same curiosity and at all times share to each other. Often, we send sms..If you had the chance to open my inbox, the senders name semua nama dia je la…(du uhh) * Xpax maaa..

If you ever notice that after some time, our Yahoo search bar logo will turn to look like this;


Love Our Earth! Do Recycle!


Cute one isn’t? And suddenly I remember one of my sister’s msgs, she told me (she probably just watching Discovery Ch) earth have a mysterious sound, that completely imperceptible to the human ear. The sound is something like “ hummm..” erk…eww..haha..ya, at first, I thought it was disgusting but the curiosity still drive me to google the fact. This is what I found..

Competing with the natural emissions from stars and other celestial objects, our Earth sings like a canary -- it drones on in a constant hum of a gazillion notes. If it were several octaves higher, and hence, audible to the human ear, it could probably drown out the noise from a hundred TV talk shows.
In recent years scientists have used seismographs to sort out these subsurface sound waves from earthquakes (all seismic waves are, essentially, the in-ground equivalent of sound waves). But what causes the hum, which researchers call the background-free oscillation, has been a mystery.

A space symphony?
Because Mars and Venus are both solid bodies with atmospheres, our two nearest planetary neighbors are probably humming too, creating a miniature symphony in space.Because the density of these atmospheres is different, amplitudes of the 'sound' might be different,The sounds are below 10 millihertz, whereas 10,000 millihertz is about the lowest audible to the human ear. Which means you can't hear the hum. Good thing, because the discordant sound has been described by one geophysicist as "a very messy noise."
<-- cute nye!

(for more visit http://www.space.com/)

By reading many version fact of the Earth hum, I am starting to imagine, if Earth is a human, how does she look like? Sedangkan zaman Rasulullah (SAW) bumi di ibaratkan wanita tua..jadi sekarang ni, cane la ye..No doubt, she has gracious heart..Memberi tanpa meminta..isn’t she?
Love our Earth!

Good Luck Honey

Hello everybody..
Tomorrow is hubby’s exam day. At last, after 2 months (been telling everyone about his PTK exam) so in less than 24 hours from now..he will sit for the boring exam..and we will have more time to hang out ( I already find my list of vacations) He was much occupied with the exam pressure.
Before, I left hubby with pizza (that we ordered the night before) and went out to plaza alam sentral with lynn for some work..and as I arrived home at late evening, I saw him still make some revision. Ahh..he must be jaded with road works design/geotechnical/bridge assesment/whatever.. huhu
While he is struggling with the theory, my support is preparing the good and comfortable attire for the day! Hehe..Shortsleeve shirt.Not as usual. But I forgot the good luck card..will think some idea by tomorrow la.
It was my plan to have the Oldtown tonight. I think he really needs some refreshment (walaupun hubby kate poyo study kt kedai makan..but I really crave for the curry sticky rice.sebenarnye)For the first 10 minutes, I was eager ordering some food..and as I finished.. ouh..and I became bored..haha..hubby seems so quiet..cant bother…
Suddenly everything appear so loud.. I can listen to everyone’s topic..some talking about money (must be MLM) and I heard the mother telling off the kids for being manners ( do I act like that too?) and of course there are couple having their time..huhu..(me too, except the books)
What’s in my head?
1- Breakfast tomorrow
2- Traffic jam tomorrow
3- My new pink handbag..tak pakai lagi..nanti lupe la tuh
4- Buy a cat, so that I can name her Miley Cyrus..Abigail also nice.. Clemantine?
5- CheckUEM share
6- Google sample of resign letter
7- Can I try a hair rebonding?
8- Visit my tailor
9- Contact my hosting agent..when can I have my .com.my?
10- Transferring some mp3s with my sister..I want Rihanna- Take a bow
11- Da..da..da..
12- Buy the Lancome lipsticks offered by Lynn..its cheaper that the mall counter
13- Alamak..my bedazzled (refer to my phone) beads dan byk tercabut, must hide from hubby
saya sangap

yay.. at last hubby ask me if I want to go home..YES..in minutes I will have my pillow and bed..and my Yo Te Amor (my lullaby song)..so Good Nite everyone..or Good Morning..hehe

Good Luck, honey.

unhealthy?

hello folks.

Today I get to federal highway sooner than usual. I felt like want to reach office earlier. Not because of the 830am meeting,(remember our GM had just left office, we might not have the meeting..for a while ..yay!) but I was looking forward to have my breakfast at Mc Donald..boleh tak tibe2?
As the traffic was still congested, I think I better called Mc Donald as an alternative.

“welcome to Mc Donald delivery services..press 1 to continue..”

hehe..in 45 mins I will have my Mc Muffin..yay..I was thinking to ask the crew to cancel the Arabica coffee (which I dislike) but she probably will say that it’s in package. So, but nevermind..I will put that aside then…
So today, I will punch my card earlier.. and I might be the first to come in my department.. I can park my car in front of the building..my bos will impress..

In a minute I changed my mind.. I called Fizah..hehe, selalu dia mesti dah ada around here.. maybe I can cancel the order, and have our Mc Donald together..boleh borak2..mesti lagi best

Me : fizah..ko dah kat mane tuh?
Fizah : (suara ngantuk) aku EL ari nih..
Me: (sed..erk anyway..) aku dah sampai sebelah rebung..hebat tak..(consider it was 8.10 am)

…and we continue till I reach office)…






by the way, this is Fizah..
I always envy the nose








and this is me and fizabelle..
so that you can differentiate my fizas




so, from my story it quite show I am not so determine.
But anyway, my meal was ready as I reach office.hehe

ya i know, i start my day with unhealthy meal but..i promise that i will have some balance meal later for luncheon.

I had KFC.
Unhealthy.

*****************************************************
Why I always be jealous? Or maybe all girls have their own stupid jealousy?..

haha..after I read fiza's blog about Copacabana (she is organizing her boss’s trip to Rio)..and all the places that she mentioned (especially Paris. ever since been always in love with Paris) I have the thought that fiza is going to the same places too..and I start imagining fiza’s nice pictures from her vacation..haha..(ok bertindak saiko disini..tapi series ni..)

dah dengki dah ni…

and I remember after a vacation, I ask my girls to lepak so that they can have the souvenirs I bought (kitorang mmg suke tukar2 hadiah..we are thoughtfulness!) After my sms, one of my girlfren replied

ernie..simpan souvenir aku, jgn tukar ngan f*za tau..

see.. girls will always have their jealousy.
So are you will consider this as unhealthy?

But still, I believe this is cute! We are born to act cute..hahaha

xyz

hello everybody,

xyz je title..blur.
perjalanan ke ofis tadi membuatkan saya memikirkan beberapa perkara yang saya rasa tak best, tak best langsung ..dan saya percaya sangat la tak best.
antaranya;

1. mengapa sejak akhir2 ni saya sering mengalami kecederaan yg tdk sengaja..clumsy! atau terpaksa disengajakan..
yg tak sengaja


ouch..dats hurt! kecederaan terkena besi tajam, yg
tibe2 je muncul kt tepi meja pc ketika saya sedang leka men'online.parut nih kompem tak hilang.
yg terpaksa di sengajakan





seperti yg saya ceritakan sebelum ini, saya telah masuk wad dan di smbg air..hasilnya my body is itching..nape eh?tak selesa!

2. saya berfikir cane nk lari dr traffic jam? ofis masuk 830. duk ampang tapi bertegas kuar umah kul 8 pg, dan beberapa kali di gelakkan oleh fizah.walaupun perjalanan mengambil mase 45 mins dan fyi, kitorang exec kt sini (exec la sgt) everyday ade meeting at 830 am..hasilnye, saya selalu lambat..GM pula yg tggu saya..dan yg lebih sedih, arini last day GM pun saya tak tau.tapi ade farewell party..yay!

selamat bersara Mr Michael Loh



berbalik pade keadaan jam,tempat yg kronik ade la ;
SAB (sek aminudin baki) ke bulatan kg pandan
Jln Sg Besi ke Jln Istana
Federal highway..sokmo la congested

ini la yg saya harungi hari2..zzz

Dan dlm kete pula beberapa perkara yg saya terfikir utk buat bg memenuhi masa lapang, antaranya;
a) menyumpah kete depan
b)berduet ngan org kete sebelah
tapi end up, selalunye saya menambah volume radio ke 30. (fizah tau sgt la nih) kuat gile. nak nak pula lagu ' i wonder if u know , how to live in tokeyooo' (lirik sendiri je)


3) hari hari saya belajar term baru barang2 spital..kate meniaga medical equipment..kalo nk listkan package pun, ahhh..byk sgt..itu belum termasuk items kt dlm tuh lagi..

oleh kerana MMU bg saya degree IT, dan hari2 saya terpaksa berdepan ngan pharmacist la, bdk biomed yg hebat2..director2 mane2 ntah..maka saya terpaksa membuat muke selamba dan confident mcm saya tau sume brg2 tuh..and i did it well..huhu


4) 25 april ni kami dengan rasminya shift ke HQ, kt bkt raja nun...nak nangih! jauh gile tak ingatnye..rasa mcm nk balik kg fizaroosli je..so, beberapa perkara saya dah pikir utk menghadapi tempat baru, antaranya;

a) mkn place
b)reschedule wakeup alarm..kena lebih awal la..dan tmbh volume alarm..sed!
c)traffic jam kt federal tu ..aduh..
d)alaa tak dpt nk borak ngan akak cleaner a.k.a kak linda lagi pasal indonesia kt pantry ofis pj nih.
aahh..nk resign pun susah..sebab?
a)saya adalah pekerja kegemaran dan harapan bos (sebab kurang pekerja la..takde pilihan lain) so, nk cakap minta benti pon rasa serba salah..cane nihhh???
b)saham UEM tgh jatuh gile..jual sekang, rugi pula..tak boleh..tak boleh lagi nk tender nih..

so saya tensen

ouh hang on.. i think i should change the heading..ade satu perkara dat really make my day! ehehe..

last night dlm pukul 2 camtuh, my sister khairieah sms me. she made it woohooo..congratulations! die dpt tawaran masuk ke matrikulasi sains labuan..one step closer to moscow! huehuheue..die pon gembira sgt..sila layari blog die nih..tak sabar nak shopping utk die ni..

hmm..tu lah, dlm saya membenci benda yg saya harungi hari2..sebenarnye , tibe2 je dtg bende yg menggembirakan..hmm..ok, saya happy utk itu..mungkin saya kena bertenang dan think slow..atau plan ape2 yg patut..

anyway..itu yg bole plan..cane pula benda yg tak leh nk plan..atau takde jawapan yg pasti??hmm..byk juga benda kena pikir akhirnya.

It's All Coming Back To Me

It was raining when we visited one of our colleagues. Her mother has passed away. Al Fatihah.

Later when I drive back home, the gloomy sundown brought me to the past years. Suddenly it’s all coming back to me.
There was me in hospital ward together with the other family members, standing beside our beloved. She was in critical condition, unconscious. In about 30 minutes the doctor and few nurses confirmed that we have just loss her. And I was begging the doctor to allow the oxygen to be supplied for at least a little some time. I just can’t believe.
It was Ramadhan 2005.
At the graveyard, I just let myself alone. From the hill I can saw our bendang. Yesterday I was playing with her, my granny. Yesterday I was 9, usually after school I walk myself to bendang and fool around with her and my late grandpa. I don’t have so many friends when I was a kid. I played alone, and with my best friend; my granny Hatimah Illyas.
I miss your hug. It was very tender, warm with love. She was always never busy for me. She always said that I am the best, though I am not. I remember I ran to her and sobbing that my mum scolded me about my paper exam..and she in a very comfortable way said " belajar memang susah, nanti bole cuba". We always have our time together, watching TVB/Korean/Japan series.
I can’t take it. She shouldn’t depart at this time. She must with me when I have my first salary, on my wedding day or playing with my kids.
Every night I will make sure that she is alright, her door closed so that she can sleep tight. How can I leave her alone here?
I love you.
And as the last soil hide her body, I know that the love will live alive.
It was a very hard time for me. I cried every time. I just can’t help myself. One night my youngest nephew suddenly said ‘nenek’ like he calling my granny to this old lady. Some said innocent kids can see beyond us. And I was like chasing the old lady. I want to have her hand and kiss it. But in the crowd, I lost her. I was despairing. I must be crazy. But when it’s true, it’s true.
It was a very terrible year for me. I keep telling everyone about my granny. And when I lay down on bed, I make my hand up to the ceiling like reaching her. I know she is so far away. But I still met her in my dream. I must be crazy.
One day my mum’s aunt said to me that I must let her to continue her long journey. I can’t be miserable for this. Instead, pray for her. “dia pergi tak kembali” ..And she gave me this book Alam Kubur and I began so obsessed to know Hidup Sudah Mati.
Now, I almost didn’t dream about her. Maybe she is busy in her journey . I know, I must be good so I could be in her hug again, one sweet day. Heaven knows.
It’s almost 2 years, and time will always further on.
But I just want to let everyone knows that we still living with her memories.
Al – Fatihah.

P/s I remember the soundtrack for An American Tale, an animated film movie I watched with her when I was 9 or so. It’s a very sweet song.

Somewhere Out There
by Linda Ronstadt & Jamew Ingram
Somewhere out there
Beneath the pale moon light
Someone's thinking of me
And loving me tonight
Somewhere out there
Someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another
In that big somewhere out there
And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing
On the same bright star
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky
And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing
On the same bright star
Somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

Be Bedazzled

Big girls love bling bling. Blame the nature, we just love cute things as accessories, jewelries, iced (kata lain missy Elliot untuk diamond) and the like. The act of the shining, its like saying “ hey, see me..its me here!”..haha, but for me, the less is more. Today, while browsing and cuci cuci mata kat ebay, I found this website; http://www.hiphopcapital.com/

The website is hosting an online orders for hip hopers stuff, and I found some ‘interesting’ among them, which is common to snoop dog, but too weird for me..so, lets have a look.

this is so called pump cup..can u zoom in the iced..mungkin saya biasa melihatnya di E! but hello, a thousand dollar for a cup? and a cup for the red carpet walk?ok la..its worth for the photography session.

ok jgn terkejut, bentuk mcm gigi...mmg pasang kat gigi pon..urkk..not a pink teeth please..anyway this eww thing called iced grill.

haha..so bizarre, dont they?

tak dela..saje je..anyway, my earlier intention was to browse some sample of 'bedazzaled work', I mean a handphone deco work yang gelamer dan tengah style sekang ni..coz I remember last time I saw Motorola RAZR latest collection, crusted with swarovski crystals. punye la cun..isk! rasa nk nangih..






cute!






nak hadiah birthday

haa..dah jadik chanel pula

Actually this deco cost a thousand juga, if use a real Swarovski crystal..check this out; My Frost. kalo pakai artifial punya murah la skit..ada je jual gantung2 kt kedai hanphone tuh. for me this is very interesting..so handphone pun takde la boring jadik tempat msgs or mp3 port je kan..he he he..

Im loving it!

and lucky me, i got mine! Macam tak pecaye je hubby pandai wat deco..dlm kebusyan die study last 2 nights, he spent some time to made mine..and not bad. We came to this one shop and bought this at very cheap price..they already glued, so just tinggal nk susun2 je..


so maybe mine arent that luxurius but simple (wpun ade cita2 kat swarovski tu) but that doesnt matter. im loving it. its hubby that made for me..ehehe..ma kasih, pak!

Kopitiam Everywhere

I remember there was a sitcom titled kopitiam, but not to my knowledge where the word derived from. So while browsing I search the “Kopitiam” word (punya la tak ade keje). And then, ouh..kopitiam means ‘kedai kopi’..hehe, as simple as that..zzz…

Kopitiam trend is now everywhere..pegi bangi, jumpe Bangi Kopitiam..pegi wangsa maju juga they have kopitiam..Ipoh Kopitiam la..and of course Old Town White Coffee stand tall among the brand. Sape tak pernah lepak kat Oldtown.

But still they are the ordinary ‘kedai kopi’ plus the new concept which includes the presentation and food varieties..very nice! No more messy or noisy, instead a pleasurable surrounds with comfort seat, Lionel Richie music on the air and of course the smiley waiter. If Coffee Bean or Starbucks can run the business with their main coffee menu, now I think they should be ready with the coming competitors.

I had my first drink at Oldtown when someone introduced me. The ordering system which I dislike; we have to tick order ourself. Some say its cool..depends.. ( My first drink was Hazelnut blend..eh yeke) Since then Oldtown becomes the place for partaking break..hehe..

Here some proofs of this new madness..hehe


en adnan, k hani, azuan and k raja aida..k hani belanje bfast kt oldtown tadi..tq!


lalu saya dan k aida pun gembira..tipu je k raja aida tak makan pun..

Tengok la waktu ofis pun kami berkunjung ke kedai kopi ini..after ofis hour toksah nak cakap la..kami memang setia dengan Oldtown Jaya One PJ..asal pukul 5 je..we start calling each other..the members mesti la lynn, fizaros dan fizah..kami warga PJ! So yesterday we had our gathering, again..yay! tapi fizah absent sebab die baru sign up for fitness first..tak pegi rugi. fizah adalah kawan saya yang sgt rajin, mmg occupied je setiap masa..I wonder where she get the energy. So lets proceed je la..food and gossiping also energy..hehe

fizaros, manager Kerinchi kopitiam


me and my galfren lynn kat Oldtown yesterday, selepas bersurai


me having lunch with lynn di hari yang lain


saya dan abg Is meng'wiFi' kat Oldtown terdekat rumah kami, kosas ampang.

so have you Oldtown today? i think Xi Mut drink is nyummmy...

Learning the Islamic Art

I do like to have my day at Taman Tasik Perdana. Best sebenarnye, walaupun bunyi macam boring..I have myself several times down here. Last weekend, hubby and I went to have a little vacation to the Islamic Museum Art Gallery, sited in front of the Masjid Negara. The building was huge, white in color and yeah memang macam art building la.

Toward the inside,I was like..ouh this is museum the museum..haha, it is so quiet and almost nobody is around..adalah some tourist, itu pun tak banyak..well, after pay a RM24 tickets for two ( I will have half of the price if I bring my MMU student card) we start to find out the Islamic Art.

The collection of the famous mosque replica from around the globe impressed me. The architecture (the dome, calligraphy, colors assortment) illustrates Islamic civilization and other factors made this mosque a famous and everlastingly become place to unite Muslim.

The Dome of Rock, Ummayad Dynasty Jurusalem. (691 AD) The octagonal structure surrounds a rock that memorialize the spot from which the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) ascended on his Night Journey to Heaven ( Isra’ Mikraj).

org kate dulu kubah die plated gold

This structural design I admire most. Khodja Ahmad Yassaviy Mosque & Mousoleum Kazakhtan (14 century AD) construct with a typical of Timur’s imperial style.


memang hebat rekaannye

Xian Mosque, China (Tang dynasty)

we can still sees the Chinese tradition in both its design and artistic look.

The Great Mosque of Al – Haram 7 century AD. The holliest place on earth. Architecturally, reflects classical neo- Ottaman style. Kiswah, adalah kain yang menutup dinding-dinding Kaabah, dan Burqu’ adalah kain yang menutup pintu Kaabah. As the holliest place, we must well know about this Sacred Mosque, Mosque of Al- Haram



Taj Mahal, Agra India - 1648 AD. The white domed marble is superb. I become excited to read about this mausoleum after watching documentary about this great creation. Beside the story about his favourite wife Mumtaz, they have said that Shah Jahan was so obsessed about God and try to place himself beside God that he decorated the Taj Mahal assisted by one famous sufi as the diagram of The Final Judgement. Although he was an arrogant leader, but he fight back to protect Islam in his era. Until his dead, his face turn towards Mecca.
The 32 million rupees with human workforce were not enough for him to build another Black Taj Mahal. Hebat! After all an appreciation must give to its designer, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. Do read the detail, you must be amazed! Taj Mahal, someday..


me practicing my pose infront of Taj Mahal

Ok, I finished visited the famous mosque..hehe..the picture I didn’t upload was Masjid Nabawi, Madinah / Ibnu Tulun Mosque, Cairo / Selimiye Mosque ,Edirne Turkey / Imam Mosque, Isfahan. But they must forgot the Mosque of Cordoba, Spain..sigh*
After all, no camera is allowed here..but I cant help my self! I am excited to be here, museum the museum..ok next photograph..

Actually, don’t you think Istanbul is a great place? Because the location, and somehow they have European influence in style. Lets walk back to Ottaman era Turkey 1235 AH.

Assalamualaikum, sebelum masuk rumah orang ye..

The picture show when I was in the most important room qa’a. hehe I was reminiscent of Roman classical! The floor were made of marble, ceiling was constructed out of wooden and painted, not to forget the fountain and my favorite chandelier.

Al-Quran 1269 AH, Ottaman Turkey

I saw the history of Islam globalization to India and China region thru the example of crockery, jewelries, textile and even the home decoration. Awesome! Also found their version of calender, prayer book and wedding certificate.

But it come to gloomy when I read about the forgotten Palestin. As we know our previous Kiblat point was Jurusalem, lets pray for the goodness of our brothers and sisters in Palestin..amin..

It’s about 30 minutes before the museum to closed that we went to this Special Gallery. There is an exhibition about Faith & Power Women in Islam.

The exhibition present us the past great women on earth, Asiyah, Maryam (the only woman to have the chapter in Qur'an), Khadijah, Aishah..you know the name. Others like queen Arwa of Yamen, Sultana Radiya of Delhi, Cik Siti Wan Kembang pun ade tau

the potrait of Queen of Sheba a.k.a Ratu Balqis the ruler of great kingdom of Yamen at the time of Prophet Sulaiman

Tapi boring sikit la pameran ni because they expect us to read all the stuff. I wish that diorang ni rajin sikit. My suggestion, kurangkan karangan..banyak kan benda untuk di lihat. Sangat tidak berpuas hati kerana kita di larang mengambil gambar..hey, tak sempat la nak baca semua..Sedih tak dapat ambil gambar contoh kotak make up zaman dulu..its very nice, you know!

Even so, we then know that women have a place in authority and occupied of power.

There was a quotation I remember I read;

Whoever knows the worth of women and the mystery reposing in them will not refrain from loving them, indeed love for them is part of the perfection of a man who knows God, for it is legacy of the Prophet and Divine love.

Nice one, right?

Its worth the museum tour, so plan your weekend ok ..hehe
It was raining when we finished...so makan time!

We love high heels

Sometimes I thank for the billboards that we have along the highway, at least I am not that bored when stuck in traffic jam. There is one Shoe advertisement across Midvalley caught my attention. And I suddenly thinking that yes girls are crazy about this masterpiece and I am confident that every each of us must have our high heels, at least one black strap high heel, right?

Because high heels can make girls look more beautiful, sexy and eye-catching. The fact that contestants in the annual Miss America/Miss USA/Miss Universe (Miss MMU) beauty pageants have worn high heels confirms or supports these positive points. Also, high heels can obviously make a person taller, which can be desirable or even an asset in some situations and make the wearer movement very feminine and graceful.. daaa..

High heel footwear has been used for several centuries. They already have a place in this world! A high heel is a must. I wonder if Nefertiti ( Akhenaten the Pharaoh’s lover – used to be my obsession after watching her discovery on NGEO) also wear them? How are they look like. High heels must have its innovation from the past trend till now.

The fact that we know high heels is bad for our health that can cause for back pain for a long-term use. But, cute shoes can always make your day. The heel, the colors and maybe some beads here and there ..or to be so lucky with swarovski crystal (wah!) hehe, yes they really does!

I want! I want!

A high heel is fashion means that it is totally satisfactory for us to wear high heels anywhere in public at anytime, but what about men? Don’t they want to wear cute shoe too? Nowadays I notice man also wear shoe with heel. Maybe its not that high but still it got some inches. Fashion can do anything.

So, lets start with getting the right pair …
fiza and I are now ready for our hunting..hehe

Last day me and my galfren, fiza went to Midvalley ( the nearest ) after office hour. Memule tu temujanji adalah menemankan fiza makan..tapi mmg niat saya nak cari kasut..tak tahu sape pengaruh sape..lastly, dua dua pun beli..best!

After having our lunch+dinner, and have some energy, we start our hunting..tapi biasa la, kate cari kasut..tapi rasanya sume kedai pon kami masuk..window shopping..release tension keje ofis. So i have myself a pair of wedges..yes! While fiza is looking for a pair of simple flip flop..simple la..nak carinye susah!




tgh confuse2 ni..but pleasurable

At last we are done! hehe..lain kali kite hunting lagi


p/s tak sabar nk tgk mama rina bawa enter sandman. lagu zaman duk hostel dulu2.

Unforgettable Beijing

Dealing with hectic life- office life to be exact, sangat la tak best. Everyday I feel like I had a déjà vu. Everyday pun you are doing with the same thing, keluar rumah pagi masuk rumah malam. So, after plan punya plan with hubby we had choose our destination to orient area, Beijing.
I love art and historic building so much! I often read a travel column in magazines, and this place attracts me most. After Europe, I have always dream to discover the Chinese art.

my travelogue..

The largest city square in the world, Tiananmen Square. The square is a conglomeration of splendid and beautiful flowers and the red national flag, which flutters in the wind. Me, hubby and the other peserta POTO travel seawal pagi lagi dah berada kat square ni. Bayangkan keadaan cuaca yang mencecah 1 degree celcius, sangat la sejuk! Tapi nyaman..hehe.


kirip kanan..kirip!

After some snapshots, we walked to Forbidden City. Magnificent. Rasa tak berkelip mata saya melihat a splendid palace complex seperti ini. Di katakan, this is one of the five world-famous palaces with the Palace of Versailles in France, Buckingham Palace in England, the White House in the U.S. and the Kremlin in Russia. Hebat kan!
forbidden cityposing sket..

A Chinese saying goes that He who has never been to the Great Wall is not a true man.
Hmm..its not that easy to climb this wall. I almost given hope to reach the first station pun, but there is kakak yang melewati saya said “ ai, dah sampai takkan tak nak naik ke atas?” so, saya kembali bersemangat. Dalam duk terkial-kial menapak tangga tuh, baru saya perasaan that hubby tengah merakamkan aksi saya dari jauh.Cheh..malunya!



successful attempt
If you ask which place I most celebrate in Beijing? No doubt, I would say its Summer Palace. Once been a summer resort for the emperors in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). If you had ever read about the China emperor history, you will know how much this worth to be discovers.
Kunming Lake welcome us. Helo abg Is are you freezing?
Damai

Because we had a limited time and this place fascinating me that I can stop myself from running from one place to another. I snapshot the living room, bedroom, dressing room and the painted wall. All decorated in an imperial style, luxurious and delicate. Though sometimes rasa seram juga tengok sebab terbayang macam-macam..hehe.
Classy
After all, you can't help imagining the life of the imperial family. While visiting the hutongs in Beijing, I have deep understanding of the common people. We have a ride by a pedicab and visit courtyards of both former aristocrat and local people. Menarik! Hutong ni kira macam Kg Baru la

kat melaka pun tak naik beca ni

I have night sightseeing. This big city offers me a wonderful view at night. When the lights, the traffic and the fast movement of everybody here, I conclude that Beijing is the busiest city I have ever been. When I was in Zurich, I remember that all the shops closed as the sunset. But here the people are still everywhere, so maybe this is how Asian lifestyle. Yelah macam kat KL la juga..dah pukul 9 pun federal highway still jam lagi..zzz.
But they do practicing a healthy life because I was informed that the citizen will pay and have their parks card and every morning they will enjoy the gardens or parks and have some walk or little exercise. Di Beijing juga kebanyakkan orang mengguna basikal sebagai kenderaan..tak ke sihat tu?
The muslim community is large here. Its easy for us to reach halal food, and mosque is everywhere. There is district named Naujie, the muslim area where we found the large mosque and markets. Di masjid ini saya sempat bersapa dengan imam besar who can fluently speak Arabic. And to his surprise that I can converse a little.hehe.. " Kaifa haluk?" and I let hubby do the rest.

friday praying

Adalah pemandangan biasa melihat ramai peminta sedekah menunggu jemaah ini keluar dari masjid. Kasihan melihat mereka. I was told that these people comes from pelusuk kampung. They are craving for food. But I noticed a lovely cute girl asking me for some. I felt pity for her, and dalam sibuk-sibuk mencari sedikit makanan untuk dia, dia lari pula..dah la saya dah jumpa this very nice mashmellow, rasa nak kongsi dengan dia..so, maybe i can have a lil chat with her..comel sgt budak nih. Dan berlaku la kejar mengejar antara kami..hehehe, rupanya die tidak hairan kepada mashmellow itu..anyway, i hope the girl will fine. She will doing fine..kan?

We visited the Panda Zoo. Along the way to the cage, I found various kind of souvenirs. All with the smiley and happy Panda image! But, when I came to the real Panda, I don’t know..I somehow felt that the real Panda is not so cheer like what I thought when I saw the souvenirs image. Panda having its extinction and to China, killing Panda is a very serious, immoral actions. Panda tu pun malu malu je bile orang nak ambik gambar die..mungkin die hilang keyakinan diri??

Melihat kepada manufactured barangan mereka..uishh sangat la canggih. Bayangkan Handphone Nokia N family yang dijual dengan harga lebih RM2K, saya dapati di sini mereka mengklonkan handphone dan dijual dalam harga separuh daripada itu. Hebat sangat..and have you ever cross a thumbdrive 32G. I never. Adalah tapi that’s called portable hard drive kan. Correct me if I am wrong..isk.tapi still, I didn’t buy any of them. Takut la juga. Anyway, kalau kita kata Malaysia Boleh..saya boleh katakana China Semua Boleh.



under the Beijing Subway
As we know that the Olympic games will be held in Beijing this August. Semua orang berharap kekacauan yang berlaku di Tibet tidak menganggu perjalanan temasya sukan yang besar ini. Because I saw how much they struggle for the preparation. Not to mention the people, their new Stadium so called Bird’s Nest saya lihat tersergam indah dengan perkampungan sukan mereka

Shopping part now. Hehe..actually I didn’t spend so much for shopping activities. But I have myself some clothes and fabrics, silk, jewelries and whats else ya? P/s tipu je..banyak shopping ni…

So, we have so much fun. Ternyata bumi Allah ini memberi satu pengalaman yang berharga buat saya dan hubby. So much places that so little that I can write here, so maybe you can visit my album. Picture wrote a thousand words.

Balik KL? Demam! I was warded 2 days kat Taman Desa Medical Centre. The doc said that blood saya tak bersih, sebab ade kuman. Begitula adanya laporan doc tu..Not so convincing me. i know that the virus have to be flush away from my body system, and that need me to drink lot of water. minum adalah lambat, so I myself yang offer to be warded so that mereka akan menyambung air ke badan saya. Bukan tak biasa cucuk cucuk ni. Alhamdullillah I am fine now..and back to work..sigh.

- Big city. Big living. Big dreams. Thanks for everything, Beijing

Shopaholic goes movie!

I remember my girl friend, reynna introduced the Sophie Kinsella’s books. Since then, I couldn't put down any of the Shopaholic series. ngehehe..and my sister told me that the series now goes movie yay! why I always be the last to know a good news? But anyway, another hilarious-super fab movie (erk..for a fan like moi!) now filming. Though we know that the movie will not be exactly like the book ( like always) but I can’t wait...best..best sgt!..hmm..but the movie is filming in NYC, when the actual story was set up in England…or maybe they are combining the books?

Deal..Deal..Deal

Deal ..Deal..Deal

I have started my day earlier than other weekend and we rushed out to meet my future tenure. At first, I felt a bit uncertain to agree with the contract because there was some problem with the payment and the condition of the unit. But after some discussion, and hubby was concerning my extended travel (because my office was shifted to Bukit Raja), we then have the deal! So by tomorrow I will packing my stuff to move out to our first own house..hahaha..ok..

i love choc muffin


To celebrate, we had our lunch at Kenny Roger’s. Surprisingly, one boutique owner called and with half an hour notice, he wanted to have a meeting with me. gile..Luckily, I always have my sample of piece in my car. So terpaksa la makan cepat2 kan..


The tauke seems like my collection, but he wanted to take a look some more. So, by next week I have to get ready with more collection. I do really hope will have the deal. Amin..

At the afternoon, hubby pula has his discussion with contractor at Cyberjaya. Although I am not so familiar with this place, I have promised to accompany. I didn’t know any of the animals they are discussing or maybe I have heard something like ‘papan tanda’ /road / or bridge? (hubby is working at Road Department, Public Work Department) But I hope hubby will have his deal. So, boring la kan..tapi keje saya dah selesai.kena la teman die pula..




sedang meneliti peta cyberjaya..tgk pun pening.






Actually at the same time, the BIG boss also lepak kat sini. When I say Big Boss, thats mean the Minister of Work- Dato'Ir Md Zin (successor Dato' Seri Samy Vellu), saw him and other members kat meja lain..rasa nk je snap gambar (excited biase la..excited jumpe boss hubby) tapi, since nanti poyo, takpe la. But we pass by at surau sebelah Padi Hse tu.

good bye PJ office

Today is my last day at office PJ. We will be moving out to our HQ, effective this Monday. So I was busy contacting all my suppliers to inform this news. Of course most of them said “ alaa..Bukit Raja ke? Jauhnya..” and I replied “ tu la Mr Alex, I pun jauh nak travel ni..” hehe..
Certainly, I will miss this place..cheh..all this while rasa tak nak je masuk office..but I dunno why today I feel a bit cheerless...

the exhibition area

Because of workload, I did my packing last minute. Terkocoh2..tapi muke selamba je..and adalah a bundle of paper yang saya tinggalkan macam invoices / company profile yang lama2 tu.. and I found the copy of my first letter ( I think it is a Certificate of Practical Completion) to contractors. Ingat lagi, inila first assignment yang my supervisor minta buatkan.hehe..kelaka sangat masa tuh, CPC pun saya taktau And I notice the date was 7th September 2005...gosh..Time goes really fast. Suddenly its reminds me when I was called for this position interview, my friend bagi instruction and I translate it to maps..hehe, rasa kelaka sangat masa tu..and my first day pun memang blank sangat..tak pernah kenal medical equipment ni, kena study balik..but it was a nice experience..


tshirt ofis, mcm hari keluarga

So today we did the last checking, to ensure that nothing left out..alaaa..I will miss this place for several reasons;
1) My office yang selesa..lepas ni kena duk kat lab..Amcare Lab namanya..erkk..
2) Oldtown PJ
3) Parking yang selesa

Speaking about parking yang selesa, guard kat building ni baik2 belaka..ada sorang guard, budak mude indonesian semua parking orang pun dia letak tanda kerusi..hehe..rajin. I told hubby, and I was suggested belanja la die..So ade la sekali tu bagi die kuih pagi “beli untuk kamu” cheh..saya terasa baik hati.

teddy wanna say bye2


So, after all the stuffing, takde keje..lepak je la hari ni..To celebrate my last day kat office PJ, I had my lunch with finie..kat food foundry, seksyen 17. The food really fine, western menu. Kedai ni biasa2 je, tapi ada branch kat US..www.foodfoundry.us . Yang kelaka nya, chef dia asik memantau kitorang makan..dah la macam bonzer. Tak sedap pun, jadi sedap..tapi memang sedap la..(p/s recommended)

hope everything will be just fine..good luck to my team!

i saw a rainbow

The traffic was crawling, very slowly when I was about heading to workplace. But the sun shines so bright, not as usual. Perhaps, it was raining cats and dogs last night. 'catadoupe'. Whatever.

Suddenly, I saw a rainbow..yes..a R A I N B O W !
It was quite some times that I didn’t see this gorgeous spectrum of colors
Hehe..hehehe..
The rainbow made my day!


Somewhere over the rainbow..
Skies are blue...
And the dreams that you dare to dream...
Really do come true ..

It's a little gift from heaven.
Life is beautiful.

Hello Fantastico

Forget about medical equipment stuff..Hello Fantastico..

I never thought building a website would be this fun. And I am really into it! Especially playing (I am trial and error) with softwares / products in Fantastico . I am residing myself with this project (my baby project) for the past 3 weeks. After my domain hosting was activated, naaa I start challenge myself to build this website on my own..But we will see..how much time it is gonna take for me to launch the website..hihi

But frankly, I never heard Fantastico before. When I browse Internet and found this package I know that it will benefit me. I love this virtual universe so much! Always give a benefit to everybody. Anyway, Fantastico will automate installation of various web applications;

1) Photo Sharing <-- image galleries
2)E commerce <-- Shopping cart software
3) Scripts <-- php and the family.. Uninteresting..
And so forth…
Please be inform that Fantastico runs on cPanel platform (memang byk kena ingat) So,I will zoom and concentrate on stuff that I will use for my project aje.. E- commerce.

Fun..fun..this is cool.. I modified the template with colors (why all the templates using boring design, so yesterday!) .. and I paint here, there and oopss careful with the brush.. I think I love decorating. Gifted..ngehehe..Browsing some flowers image..this gonna be spanking..The box should placed here..or there..and when I preview it..weh takkan pink sangat..Must amend some part..will added other pastel c o l o r s..ernie! hahah..

Wallla.. my templates are now ready..It is time for me to configure it, so it will look like a store..(not a flower store though) an online store. Store ape, rahsia dulu..So, I am dealing with constructing an E-commerce website. No more painting or decorating now. At first, I am blank. Blur and I have no knowledge at all! So I take initiative to learn through the tutorial. I browse again, search for Zen Cart tutorial (because I am using Zen Cart – a shopping cart software). The tutorials give me the step by step understanding (and headache) on how to configure the online store. From adding product attributes, to payment modules..and shipping tax ( I don’t think I need it for this time..takde la hebat sgt kan..biase2 je dulu) and I must be aware of my future database..I have to master on how to house-keeping them.

Honestly, memang agak memecahkan kepala..no wonder people employ other to build their website..even a simple web yang ada company profile je..Me? I am the one yang beriya2 nak buat sendiri. So I believe anything that we choose to start, we meant to finish..sed.. but, I'm proud of myself.

So guys..wish me luck..and here is a little preview..


why is it hard to say "No"?

can you...

can you....

can you....


No..sorry... I cant.. I am fully occupied...


Yes...anything?

Earth Hum

My sisters and I have the same curiosity and at all times share to each other. Often, we send sms..If you had the chance to open my inbox, the senders name semua nama dia je la…(du uhh) * Xpax maaa..

If you ever notice that after some time, our Yahoo search bar logo will turn to look like this;


Love Our Earth! Do Recycle!


Cute one isn’t? And suddenly I remember one of my sister’s msgs, she told me (she probably just watching Discovery Ch) earth have a mysterious sound, that completely imperceptible to the human ear. The sound is something like “ hummm..” erk…eww..haha..ya, at first, I thought it was disgusting but the curiosity still drive me to google the fact. This is what I found..

Competing with the natural emissions from stars and other celestial objects, our Earth sings like a canary -- it drones on in a constant hum of a gazillion notes. If it were several octaves higher, and hence, audible to the human ear, it could probably drown out the noise from a hundred TV talk shows.
In recent years scientists have used seismographs to sort out these subsurface sound waves from earthquakes (all seismic waves are, essentially, the in-ground equivalent of sound waves). But what causes the hum, which researchers call the background-free oscillation, has been a mystery.

A space symphony?
Because Mars and Venus are both solid bodies with atmospheres, our two nearest planetary neighbors are probably humming too, creating a miniature symphony in space.Because the density of these atmospheres is different, amplitudes of the 'sound' might be different,The sounds are below 10 millihertz, whereas 10,000 millihertz is about the lowest audible to the human ear. Which means you can't hear the hum. Good thing, because the discordant sound has been described by one geophysicist as "a very messy noise."
<-- cute nye!

(for more visit http://www.space.com/)

By reading many version fact of the Earth hum, I am starting to imagine, if Earth is a human, how does she look like? Sedangkan zaman Rasulullah (SAW) bumi di ibaratkan wanita tua..jadi sekarang ni, cane la ye..No doubt, she has gracious heart..Memberi tanpa meminta..isn’t she?
Love our Earth!

Good Luck Honey

Hello everybody..
Tomorrow is hubby’s exam day. At last, after 2 months (been telling everyone about his PTK exam) so in less than 24 hours from now..he will sit for the boring exam..and we will have more time to hang out ( I already find my list of vacations) He was much occupied with the exam pressure.
Before, I left hubby with pizza (that we ordered the night before) and went out to plaza alam sentral with lynn for some work..and as I arrived home at late evening, I saw him still make some revision. Ahh..he must be jaded with road works design/geotechnical/bridge assesment/whatever.. huhu

It was my plan to have the Oldtown tonight. I think he really needs some refreshment (walaupun hubby kate poyo study kt kedai makan..but I really crave for the curry sticky rice.sebenarnye)For the first 10 minutes, I was eager ordering some food..and as I finished.. ouh..and I became bored..haha..hubby seems so quiet..cant bother…
Suddenly everything appear so loud.. I can listen to everyone’s topic..some talking about money (must be MLM) and I heard the mother telling off the kids for being manners ( do I act like that too?) and of course there are couple having their time..huhu..(me too, except the books)
What’s in my head?
1- Breakfast tomorrow
2- Traffic jam tomorrow
3- My new pink handbag..tak pakai lagi..nanti lupe la tuh
4- Buy a cat, so that I can name her Miley Cyrus..Abigail also nice.. Clemantine?
5- CheckUEM share
6- Google sample of resign letter
7- Can I try a hair rebonding?
8- Visit my tailor
9- Contact my hosting agent..when can I have my .com.my?
10- Transferring some mp3s with my sister..I want Rihanna- Take a bow
11- Da..da..da..
12- Buy the Lancome lipsticks offered by Lynn..its cheaper that the mall counter
13- Alamak..my bedazzled (refer to my phone) beads dan byk tercabut, must hide from hubby
saya sangap

yay.. at last hubby ask me if I want to go home..YES..in minutes I will have my pillow and bed..and my Yo Te Amor (my lullaby song)..so Good Nite everyone..or Good Morning..hehe

Good Luck, honey.

unhealthy?

hello folks.

Today I get to federal highway sooner than usual. I felt like want to reach office earlier. Not because of the 830am meeting,(remember our GM had just left office, we might not have the meeting..for a while ..yay!) but I was looking forward to have my breakfast at Mc Donald..boleh tak tibe2?
As the traffic was still congested, I think I better called Mc Donald as an alternative.

“welcome to Mc Donald delivery services..press 1 to continue..”

hehe..in 45 mins I will have my Mc Muffin..yay..I was thinking to ask the crew to cancel the Arabica coffee (which I dislike) but she probably will say that it’s in package. So, but nevermind..I will put that aside then…
So today, I will punch my card earlier.. and I might be the first to come in my department.. I can park my car in front of the building..my bos will impress..

In a minute I changed my mind.. I called Fizah..hehe, selalu dia mesti dah ada around here.. maybe I can cancel the order, and have our Mc Donald together..boleh borak2..mesti lagi best

Me : fizah..ko dah kat mane tuh?
Fizah : (suara ngantuk) aku EL ari nih..
Me: (sed..erk anyway..) aku dah sampai sebelah rebung..hebat tak..(consider it was 8.10 am)

…and we continue till I reach office)…






by the way, this is Fizah..
I always envy the nose








and this is me and fizabelle..
so that you can differentiate my fizas




so, from my story it quite show I am not so determine.
But anyway, my meal was ready as I reach office.hehe

ya i know, i start my day with unhealthy meal but..i promise that i will have some balance meal later for luncheon.

I had KFC.
Unhealthy.

*****************************************************
Why I always be jealous? Or maybe all girls have their own stupid jealousy?..

haha..after I read fiza's blog about Copacabana (she is organizing her boss’s trip to Rio)..and all the places that she mentioned (especially Paris. ever since been always in love with Paris) I have the thought that fiza is going to the same places too..and I start imagining fiza’s nice pictures from her vacation..haha..(ok bertindak saiko disini..tapi series ni..)

dah dengki dah ni…

and I remember after a vacation, I ask my girls to lepak so that they can have the souvenirs I bought (kitorang mmg suke tukar2 hadiah..we are thoughtfulness!) After my sms, one of my girlfren replied

ernie..simpan souvenir aku, jgn tukar ngan f*za tau..

see.. girls will always have their jealousy.
So are you will consider this as unhealthy?

But still, I believe this is cute! We are born to act cute..hahaha

xyz

hello everybody,

xyz je title..blur.
perjalanan ke ofis tadi membuatkan saya memikirkan beberapa perkara yang saya rasa tak best, tak best langsung ..dan saya percaya sangat la tak best.
antaranya;

1. mengapa sejak akhir2 ni saya sering mengalami kecederaan yg tdk sengaja..clumsy! atau terpaksa disengajakan..
yg tak sengaja


ouch..dats hurt! kecederaan terkena besi tajam, yg
tibe2 je muncul kt tepi meja pc ketika saya sedang leka men'online.parut nih kompem tak hilang.
yg terpaksa di sengajakan





seperti yg saya ceritakan sebelum ini, saya telah masuk wad dan di smbg air..hasilnya my body is itching..nape eh?tak selesa!

2. saya berfikir cane nk lari dr traffic jam? ofis masuk 830. duk ampang tapi bertegas kuar umah kul 8 pg, dan beberapa kali di gelakkan oleh fizah.walaupun perjalanan mengambil mase 45 mins dan fyi, kitorang exec kt sini (exec la sgt) everyday ade meeting at 830 am..hasilnye, saya selalu lambat..GM pula yg tggu saya..dan yg lebih sedih, arini last day GM pun saya tak tau.tapi ade farewell party..yay!

selamat bersara Mr Michael Loh



berbalik pade keadaan jam,tempat yg kronik ade la ;
SAB (sek aminudin baki) ke bulatan kg pandan
Jln Sg Besi ke Jln Istana
Federal highway..sokmo la congested

ini la yg saya harungi hari2..zzz

Dan dlm kete pula beberapa perkara yg saya terfikir utk buat bg memenuhi masa lapang, antaranya;
a) menyumpah kete depan
b)berduet ngan org kete sebelah
tapi end up, selalunye saya menambah volume radio ke 30. (fizah tau sgt la nih) kuat gile. nak nak pula lagu ' i wonder if u know , how to live in tokeyooo' (lirik sendiri je)


3) hari hari saya belajar term baru barang2 spital..kate meniaga medical equipment..kalo nk listkan package pun, ahhh..byk sgt..itu belum termasuk items kt dlm tuh lagi..

oleh kerana MMU bg saya degree IT, dan hari2 saya terpaksa berdepan ngan pharmacist la, bdk biomed yg hebat2..director2 mane2 ntah..maka saya terpaksa membuat muke selamba dan confident mcm saya tau sume brg2 tuh..and i did it well..huhu

c)traffic jam kt federal tu ..aduh..
d)alaa tak dpt nk borak ngan akak cleaner a.k.a kak linda lagi pasal indonesia kt pantry ofis pj nih.
aahh..nk resign pun susah..sebab?
a)saya adalah pekerja kegemaran dan harapan bos (sebab kurang pekerja la..takde pilihan lain) so, nk cakap minta benti pon rasa serba salah..cane nihhh???
b)saham UEM tgh jatuh gile..jual sekang, rugi pula..tak boleh..tak boleh lagi nk tender nih..

so saya tensen

It's All Coming Back To Me

It was raining when we visited one of our colleagues. Her mother has passed away. Al Fatihah.

Later when I drive back home, the gloomy sundown brought me to the past years. Suddenly it’s all coming back to me.
There was me in hospital ward together with the other family members, standing beside our beloved. She was in critical condition, unconscious. In about 30 minutes the doctor and few nurses confirmed that we have just loss her. And I was begging the doctor to allow the oxygen to be supplied for at least a little some time. I just can’t believe.
It was Ramadhan 2005.
At the graveyard, I just let myself alone. From the hill I can saw our bendang. Yesterday I was playing with her, my granny. Yesterday I was 9, usually after school I walk myself to bendang and fool around with her and my late grandpa. I don’t have so many friends when I was a kid. I played alone, and with my best friend; my granny Hatimah Illyas.
I miss your hug. It was very tender, warm with love. She was always never busy for me. She always said that I am the best, though I am not. I remember I ran to her and sobbing that my mum scolded me about my paper exam..and she in a very comfortable way said " belajar memang susah, nanti bole cuba". We always have our time together, watching TVB/Korean/Japan series.
I can’t take it. She shouldn’t depart at this time. She must with me when I have my first salary, on my wedding day or playing with my kids.
Every night I will make sure that she is alright, her door closed so that she can sleep tight. How can I leave her alone here?
I love you.
And as the last soil hide her body, I know that the love will live alive.
It was a very hard time for me. I cried every time. I just can’t help myself. One night my youngest nephew suddenly said ‘nenek’ like he calling my granny to this old lady. Some said innocent kids can see beyond us. And I was like chasing the old lady. I want to have her hand and kiss it. But in the crowd, I lost her. I was despairing. I must be crazy. But when it’s true, it’s true.
It was a very terrible year for me. I keep telling everyone about my granny. And when I lay down on bed, I make my hand up to the ceiling like reaching her. I know she is so far away. But I still met her in my dream. I must be crazy.
One day my mum’s aunt said to me that I must let her to continue her long journey. I can’t be miserable for this. Instead, pray for her. “dia pergi tak kembali” ..And she gave me this book Alam Kubur and I began so obsessed to know Hidup Sudah Mati.
Now, I almost didn’t dream about her. Maybe she is busy in her journey . I know, I must be good so I could be in her hug again, one sweet day. Heaven knows.
It’s almost 2 years, and time will always further on.
But I just want to let everyone knows that we still living with her memories.
Al – Fatihah.

P/s I remember the soundtrack for An American Tale, an animated film movie I watched with her when I was 9 or so. It’s a very sweet song.

Somewhere Out There
by Linda Ronstadt & Jamew Ingram
Somewhere out there
Beneath the pale moon light
Someone's thinking of me
And loving me tonight
Somewhere out there
Someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another
In that big somewhere out there
And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing
On the same bright star
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky
And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing
On the same bright star
Somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

Be Bedazzled

Big girls love bling bling. Blame the nature, we just love cute things as accessories, jewelries, iced (kata lain missy Elliot untuk diamond) and the like. The act of the shining, its like saying “ hey, see me..its me here!”..haha, but for me, the less is more. Today, while browsing and cuci cuci mata kat ebay, I found this website; http://www.hiphopcapital.com/

The website is hosting an online orders for hip hopers stuff, and I found some ‘interesting’ among them, which is common to snoop dog, but too weird for me..so, lets have a look.

this is so called pump cup..can u zoom in the iced..mungkin saya biasa melihatnya di E! but hello, a thousand dollar for a cup? and a cup for the red carpet walk?ok la..its worth for the photography session.

ok jgn terkejut, bentuk mcm gigi...mmg pasang kat gigi pon..urkk..not a pink teeth please..anyway this eww thing called iced grill.

haha..so bizarre, dont they?

tak dela..saje je..anyway, my earlier intention was to browse some sample of 'bedazzaled work', I mean a handphone deco work yang gelamer dan tengah style sekang ni..coz I remember last time I saw Motorola RAZR latest collection, crusted with swarovski crystals. punye la cun..isk! rasa nk nangih..






cute!






nak hadiah birthday

haa..dah jadik chanel pula

Actually this deco cost a thousand juga, if use a real Swarovski crystal..check this out; My Frost. kalo pakai artifial punya murah la skit..ada je jual gantung2 kt kedai hanphone tuh. for me this is very interesting..so handphone pun takde la boring jadik tempat msgs or mp3 port je kan..he he he..

Im loving it!

and lucky me, i got mine! Macam tak pecaye je hubby pandai wat deco..dlm kebusyan die study last 2 nights, he spent some time to made mine..and not bad. We came to this one shop and bought this at very cheap price..they already glued, so just tinggal nk susun2 je..


so maybe mine arent that luxurius but simple (wpun ade cita2 kat swarovski tu) but that doesnt matter. im loving it. its hubby that made for me..ehehe..ma kasih, pak!

Kopitiam Everywhere

I remember there was a sitcom titled kopitiam, but not to my knowledge where the word derived from. So while browsing I search the “Kopitiam” word (punya la tak ade keje). And then, ouh..kopitiam means ‘kedai kopi’..hehe, as simple as that..zzz…

Kopitiam trend is now everywhere..pegi bangi, jumpe Bangi Kopitiam..pegi wangsa maju juga they have kopitiam..Ipoh Kopitiam la..and of course Old Town White Coffee stand tall among the brand. Sape tak pernah lepak kat Oldtown.

But still they are the ordinary ‘kedai kopi’ plus the new concept which includes the presentation and food varieties..very nice! No more messy or noisy, instead a pleasurable surrounds with comfort seat, Lionel Richie music on the air and of course the smiley waiter. If Coffee Bean or Starbucks can run the business with their main coffee menu, now I think they should be ready with the coming competitors.

I had my first drink at Oldtown when someone introduced me. The ordering system which I dislike; we have to tick order ourself. Some say its cool..depends.. ( My first drink was Hazelnut blend..eh yeke) Since then Oldtown becomes the place for partaking break..hehe..

Here some proofs of this new madness..hehe


en adnan, k hani, azuan and k raja aida..k hani belanje bfast kt oldtown tadi..tq!


lalu saya dan k aida pun gembira..tipu je k raja aida tak makan pun..

Tengok la waktu ofis pun kami berkunjung ke kedai kopi ini..after ofis hour toksah nak cakap la..kami memang setia dengan Oldtown Jaya One PJ..asal pukul 5 je..we start calling each other..the members mesti la lynn, fizaros dan fizah..kami warga PJ! So yesterday we had our gathering, again..yay! tapi fizah absent sebab die baru sign up for fitness first..tak pegi rugi. fizah adalah kawan saya yang sgt rajin, mmg occupied je setiap masa..I wonder where she get the energy. So lets proceed je la..food and gossiping also energy..hehe

fizaros, manager Kerinchi kopitiam


me and my galfren lynn kat Oldtown yesterday, selepas bersurai


me having lunch with lynn di hari yang lain


saya dan abg Is meng'wiFi' kat Oldtown terdekat rumah kami, kosas ampang.

so have you Oldtown today? i think Xi Mut drink is nyummmy...

Learning the Islamic Art

I do like to have my day at Taman Tasik Perdana. Best sebenarnye, walaupun bunyi macam boring..I have myself several times down here. Last weekend, hubby and I went to have a little vacation to the Islamic Museum Art Gallery, sited in front of the Masjid Negara. The building was huge, white in color and yeah memang macam art building la.

Toward the inside,I was like..ouh this is museum the museum..haha, it is so quiet and almost nobody is around..adalah some tourist, itu pun tak banyak..well, after pay a RM24 tickets for two ( I will have half of the price if I bring my MMU student card) we start to find out the Islamic Art.

The collection of the famous mosque replica from around the globe impressed me. The architecture (the dome, calligraphy, colors assortment) illustrates Islamic civilization and other factors made this mosque a famous and everlastingly become place to unite Muslim.

The Dome of Rock, Ummayad Dynasty Jurusalem. (691 AD) The octagonal structure surrounds a rock that memorialize the spot from which the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) ascended on his Night Journey to Heaven ( Isra’ Mikraj).

org kate dulu kubah die plated gold

This structural design I admire most. Khodja Ahmad Yassaviy Mosque & Mousoleum Kazakhtan (14 century AD) construct with a typical of Timur’s imperial style.


memang hebat rekaannye

Xian Mosque, China (Tang dynasty)

we can still sees the Chinese tradition in both its design and artistic look.

The Great Mosque of Al – Haram 7 century AD. The holliest place on earth. Architecturally, reflects classical neo- Ottaman style. Kiswah, adalah kain yang menutup dinding-dinding Kaabah, dan Burqu’ adalah kain yang menutup pintu Kaabah. As the holliest place, we must well know about this Sacred Mosque, Mosque of Al- Haram



Taj Mahal, Agra India - 1648 AD. The white domed marble is superb. I become excited to read about this mausoleum after watching documentary about this great creation. Beside the story about his favourite wife Mumtaz, they have said that Shah Jahan was so obsessed about God and try to place himself beside God that he decorated the Taj Mahal assisted by one famous sufi as the diagram of The Final Judgement. Although he was an arrogant leader, but he fight back to protect Islam in his era. Until his dead, his face turn towards Mecca.
The 32 million rupees with human workforce were not enough for him to build another Black Taj Mahal. Hebat! After all an appreciation must give to its designer, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. Do read the detail, you must be amazed! Taj Mahal, someday..


me practicing my pose infront of Taj Mahal

Ok, I finished visited the famous mosque..hehe..the picture I didn’t upload was Masjid Nabawi, Madinah / Ibnu Tulun Mosque, Cairo / Selimiye Mosque ,Edirne Turkey / Imam Mosque, Isfahan. But they must forgot the Mosque of Cordoba, Spain..sigh*
After all, no camera is allowed here..but I cant help my self! I am excited to be here, museum the museum..ok next photograph..

Actually, don’t you think Istanbul is a great place? Because the location, and somehow they have European influence in style. Lets walk back to Ottaman era Turkey 1235 AH.

Assalamualaikum, sebelum masuk rumah orang ye..

The picture show when I was in the most important room qa’a. hehe I was reminiscent of Roman classical! The floor were made of marble, ceiling was constructed out of wooden and painted, not to forget the fountain and my favorite chandelier.

Al-Quran 1269 AH, Ottaman Turkey

I saw the history of Islam globalization to India and China region thru the example of crockery, jewelries, textile and even the home decoration. Awesome! Also found their version of calender, prayer book and wedding certificate.

But it come to gloomy when I read about the forgotten Palestin. As we know our previous Kiblat point was Jurusalem, lets pray for the goodness of our brothers and sisters in Palestin..amin..

It’s about 30 minutes before the museum to closed that we went to this Special Gallery. There is an exhibition about Faith & Power Women in Islam.

The exhibition present us the past great women on earth, Asiyah, Maryam (the only woman to have the chapter in Qur'an), Khadijah, Aishah..you know the name. Others like queen Arwa of Yamen, Sultana Radiya of Delhi, Cik Siti Wan Kembang pun ade tau

the potrait of Queen of Sheba a.k.a Ratu Balqis the ruler of great kingdom of Yamen at the time of Prophet Sulaiman

Tapi boring sikit la pameran ni because they expect us to read all the stuff. I wish that diorang ni rajin sikit. My suggestion, kurangkan karangan..banyak kan benda untuk di lihat. Sangat tidak berpuas hati kerana kita di larang mengambil gambar..hey, tak sempat la nak baca semua..Sedih tak dapat ambil gambar contoh kotak make up zaman dulu..its very nice, you know!

Even so, we then know that women have a place in authority and occupied of power.

There was a quotation I remember I read;

Whoever knows the worth of women and the mystery reposing in them will not refrain from loving them, indeed love for them is part of the perfection of a man who knows God, for it is legacy of the Prophet and Divine love.

Nice one, right?

Its worth the museum tour, so plan your weekend ok ..hehe
It was raining when we finished...so makan time!

We love high heels

Sometimes I thank for the billboards that we have along the highway, at least I am not that bored when stuck in traffic jam. There is one Shoe advertisement across Midvalley caught my attention. And I suddenly thinking that yes girls are crazy about this masterpiece and I am confident that every each of us must have our high heels, at least one black strap high heel, right?

Because high heels can make girls look more beautiful, sexy and eye-catching. The fact that contestants in the annual Miss America/Miss USA/Miss Universe (Miss MMU) beauty pageants have worn high heels confirms or supports these positive points. Also, high heels can obviously make a person taller, which can be desirable or even an asset in some situations and make the wearer movement very feminine and graceful.. daaa..

High heel footwear has been used for several centuries. They already have a place in this world! A high heel is a must. I wonder if Nefertiti ( Akhenaten the Pharaoh’s lover – used to be my obsession after watching her discovery on NGEO) also wear them? How are they look like. High heels must have its innovation from the past trend till now.

The fact that we know high heels is bad for our health that can cause for back pain for a long-term use. But, cute shoes can always make your day. The heel, the colors and maybe some beads here and there ..or to be so lucky with swarovski crystal (wah!) hehe, yes they really does!

I want! I want!

A high heel is fashion means that it is totally satisfactory for us to wear high heels anywhere in public at anytime, but what about men? Don’t they want to wear cute shoe too? Nowadays I notice man also wear shoe with heel. Maybe its not that high but still it got some inches. Fashion can do anything.

So, lets start with getting the right pair …
fiza and I are now ready for our hunting..hehe

Last day me and my galfren, fiza went to Midvalley ( the nearest ) after office hour. Memule tu temujanji adalah menemankan fiza makan..tapi mmg niat saya nak cari kasut..tak tahu sape pengaruh sape..lastly, dua dua pun beli..best!

After having our lunch+dinner, and have some energy, we start our hunting..tapi biasa la, kate cari kasut..tapi rasanya sume kedai pon kami masuk..window shopping..release tension keje ofis. So i have myself a pair of wedges..yes! While fiza is looking for a pair of simple flip flop..simple la..nak carinye susah!




tgh confuse2 ni..but pleasurable

At last we are done! hehe..lain kali kite hunting lagi


p/s tak sabar nk tgk mama rina bawa enter sandman. lagu zaman duk hostel dulu2.

Unforgettable Beijing

Dealing with hectic life- office life to be exact, sangat la tak best. Everyday I feel like I had a déjà vu. Everyday pun you are doing with the same thing, keluar rumah pagi masuk rumah malam. So, after plan punya plan with hubby we had choose our destination to orient area, Beijing.
I love art and historic building so much! I often read a travel column in magazines, and this place attracts me most. After Europe, I have always dream to discover the Chinese art.

my travelogue..

The largest city square in the world, Tiananmen Square. The square is a conglomeration of splendid and beautiful flowers and the red national flag, which flutters in the wind. Me, hubby and the other peserta POTO travel seawal pagi lagi dah berada kat square ni. Bayangkan keadaan cuaca yang mencecah 1 degree celcius, sangat la sejuk! Tapi nyaman..hehe.


kirip kanan..kirip!

After some snapshots, we walked to Forbidden City. Magnificent. Rasa tak berkelip mata saya melihat a splendid palace complex seperti ini. Di katakan, this is one of the five world-famous palaces with the Palace of Versailles in France, Buckingham Palace in England, the White House in the U.S. and the Kremlin in Russia. Hebat kan!
forbidden cityposing sket..

A Chinese saying goes that He who has never been to the Great Wall is not a true man.
Hmm..its not that easy to climb this wall. I almost given hope to reach the first station pun, but there is kakak yang melewati saya said “ ai, dah sampai takkan tak nak naik ke atas?” so, saya kembali bersemangat. Dalam duk terkial-kial menapak tangga tuh, baru saya perasaan that hubby tengah merakamkan aksi saya dari jauh.Cheh..malunya!



successful attempt
If you ask which place I most celebrate in Beijing? No doubt, I would say its Summer Palace. Once been a summer resort for the emperors in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). If you had ever read about the China emperor history, you will know how much this worth to be discovers.
Kunming Lake welcome us. Helo abg Is are you freezing?
Damai

Because we had a limited time and this place fascinating me that I can stop myself from running from one place to another. I snapshot the living room, bedroom, dressing room and the painted wall. All decorated in an imperial style, luxurious and delicate. Though sometimes rasa seram juga tengok sebab terbayang macam-macam..hehe.
Classy
After all, you can't help imagining the life of the imperial family. While visiting the hutongs in Beijing, I have deep understanding of the common people. We have a ride by a pedicab and visit courtyards of both former aristocrat and local people. Menarik! Hutong ni kira macam Kg Baru la

kat melaka pun tak naik beca ni

I have night sightseeing. This big city offers me a wonderful view at night. When the lights, the traffic and the fast movement of everybody here, I conclude that Beijing is the busiest city I have ever been. When I was in Zurich, I remember that all the shops closed as the sunset. But here the people are still everywhere, so maybe this is how Asian lifestyle. Yelah macam kat KL la juga..dah pukul 9 pun federal highway still jam lagi..zzz.
But they do practicing a healthy life because I was informed that the citizen will pay and have their parks card and every morning they will enjoy the gardens or parks and have some walk or little exercise. Di Beijing juga kebanyakkan orang mengguna basikal sebagai kenderaan..tak ke sihat tu?
The muslim community is large here. Its easy for us to reach halal food, and mosque is everywhere. There is district named Naujie, the muslim area where we found the large mosque and markets. Di masjid ini saya sempat bersapa dengan imam besar who can fluently speak Arabic. And to his surprise that I can converse a little.hehe.. " Kaifa haluk?" and I let hubby do the rest.

friday praying

Adalah pemandangan biasa melihat ramai peminta sedekah menunggu jemaah ini keluar dari masjid. Kasihan melihat mereka. I was told that these people comes from pelusuk kampung. They are craving for food. But I noticed a lovely cute girl asking me for some. I felt pity for her, and dalam sibuk-sibuk mencari sedikit makanan untuk dia, dia lari pula..dah la saya dah jumpa this very nice mashmellow, rasa nak kongsi dengan dia..so, maybe i can have a lil chat with her..comel sgt budak nih. Dan berlaku la kejar mengejar antara kami..hehehe, rupanya die tidak hairan kepada mashmellow itu..anyway, i hope the girl will fine. She will doing fine..kan?

We visited the Panda Zoo. Along the way to the cage, I found various kind of souvenirs. All with the smiley and happy Panda image! But, when I came to the real Panda, I don’t know..I somehow felt that the real Panda is not so cheer like what I thought when I saw the souvenirs image. Panda having its extinction and to China, killing Panda is a very serious, immoral actions. Panda tu pun malu malu je bile orang nak ambik gambar die..mungkin die hilang keyakinan diri??

Melihat kepada manufactured barangan mereka..uishh sangat la canggih. Bayangkan Handphone Nokia N family yang dijual dengan harga lebih RM2K, saya dapati di sini mereka mengklonkan handphone dan dijual dalam harga separuh daripada itu. Hebat sangat..and have you ever cross a thumbdrive 32G. I never. Adalah tapi that’s called portable hard drive kan. Correct me if I am wrong..isk.tapi still, I didn’t buy any of them. Takut la juga. Anyway, kalau kita kata Malaysia Boleh..saya boleh katakana China Semua Boleh.



under the Beijing Subway
As we know that the Olympic games will be held in Beijing this August. Semua orang berharap kekacauan yang berlaku di Tibet tidak menganggu perjalanan temasya sukan yang besar ini. Because I saw how much they struggle for the preparation. Not to mention the people, their new Stadium so called Bird’s Nest saya lihat tersergam indah dengan perkampungan sukan mereka

Shopping part now. Hehe..actually I didn’t spend so much for shopping activities. But I have myself some clothes and fabrics, silk, jewelries and whats else ya? P/s tipu je..banyak shopping ni…

So, we have so much fun. Ternyata bumi Allah ini memberi satu pengalaman yang berharga buat saya dan hubby. So much places that so little that I can write here, so maybe you can visit my album. Picture wrote a thousand words.

Balik KL? Demam! I was warded 2 days kat Taman Desa Medical Centre. The doc said that blood saya tak bersih, sebab ade kuman. Begitula adanya laporan doc tu..Not so convincing me. i know that the virus have to be flush away from my body system, and that need me to drink lot of water. minum adalah lambat, so I myself yang offer to be warded so that mereka akan menyambung air ke badan saya. Bukan tak biasa cucuk cucuk ni. Alhamdullillah I am fine now..and back to work..sigh.

- Big city. Big living. Big dreams. Thanks for everything, Beijing
