Poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth

I must say that the last time I did for jotting down notes was in MMU time.., but the documentary titled ‘Treasure of Islam’ @Oasis made the pink notebook practical again. I was very fascinated that I penned every point-to-google-later like I understand what the narrator said.. kerana dalam language aku tak paham.. Ok, it was all about the early of Islamic history in Andalucia.. I guess it was Spain’s production and yap, featured gorgeous landscapes and historical building..with Arabic architectural style..very magnificient! Wahh..I’m even more obsessed with Palace of Al Hambra.. If you still remember my visit to Muzium Islam and Taman Tamadun Islam..

Ok, this one very cute..(bercakap harus macam pernah pergi) there are four great halls, one with the famous Patio de los Leones – the lion court, figures of lions that carry a fountain..and in it with some poetry – (translate siap2)



“Sedikit bicara dan kamu akan menemui kedamaian”


..omg so wonderful, how to make guests feel welcome because the path will lead us to next hall..yang macam ucap Assalamualaikum..best kan..








Ok I have even more to share.. there was a king named Al- Mu’tamid or famous known as the poet King for Seville (or Sevilla lebih classic) the city of poet. He was immortalized by his verse;

She stood in all her slender grace

Veiling the sun’s orb from my face

O may her beauty ever be

So veiled from times inconstancy


It was as if she knew, I guess,

She was a moon of loveliness;

And may aught else the bright sun veil

Except the moon's own lustre pale?


One day..chewah macam narrator tu cakap, as per subtitle la..While leisurely walking along the river's bank, the King unrehearsed a half verse, challenging his accompanies to supply the second verse on the spot. But before he could take up the rhyme, one of the washerwomen beside the river promptly replied. Mesmerized by her beauty and cleverness, the King brought her to the palace. Her name was I'timad and became his Queen of heart..






..macam fairy tale..dramatic haha

Mood baik nampak aku nih..la la la ~


..the milky way upon the heaven is twinking just for you..and Mr Moon he came by to say goodnight to you..haah baru dengar MLTR. Nite everyone..



p/s apparently haven’t posted for 2009 resolution.

al fatihah

Duli Yang Maha Mulia Tuanku Jaafar ..
but will remain like his father on our bank note

zoo trip

It was all my idea to visit zoo.. zooOOoo..thee hee.. aktiviti riadah la pula kali nih.. :P ok, maybe it was hubby’s idea long ago but I was too afraid of mosquitoes..zoo = mosquitoes..fobia nyamuk setelah denggi..urghh..BUT if it wasn’t because of the leopard-printed shawl..haha, sesuai pegi zoo.


I can’t think any appropriate reason I could wear such leopard-printed fabric. Do you? But it was actually look pretty good, maybe I should have leopard-printed high heel.



Ok. I suppose to talk about our zoo trip.


We reached zoo at 12, and because of public holiday the place was a bit crowded. The more, the merrier kan..



sempat masuk Bernama TV..yg ni ayah suh upload


Alex, Marty and Gloria were there.. I never had such so much fun to see animals.. lebih2 lagi bila jumpa die nih haa..comel dan geram..


Bambi and his girlfriends


Well, it took real patience to have a nice shot of them..arghh.. We were quite surprised that the place actually well maintained. There were activities held, also animals show but it was too crowded..public holiday kan.



like my childhood view



camel..ok semua tahu


posisi selesa


..and then it took 4 hours to complete the trip.. it was fun, at least for my first ever zoo visit. kaki melecet tapi . sed

SLR hunting




for 24 DEC update

I was too young to understand about death or such ‘going away’. I was lying in my bed, at Yayasan Sabah’s place, when ayah called me about my gapa (grandpa) have passed away. It was my first day at new place, but little did I know that it was my last day to have him. It was yesterday and 14 years ago. hmm..Al Fatihah.

Today, I was driving in crawl traffic with one mission. CAMERA hunting. Kayrunie (please note the new spelling, and I’ll tell you later) was so excited for her ‘all hail’ day.. the SLR, the reason for all effort of 3 weeks part time work, her dream..her future bestfriend..bla bla..you know how much she have yearned for SLR..So, today would be the day..’all hail’! haha

..and I’ve been super supportive to cancel my previous work plan, accompanied her for the hunting.. We were at sg besi when the traffic jam was actually caused by the inconsiderate freaks drivers who wouldn't give way to signal drivers in left lane.. tak suka kan, kalo dah signal org tak kasi masuk..


dah setahun kot tersadai, takde org nak beli?

So, we reached SgWang at 12, and I realized that wahh..it was a while since my last here..sungguh hingar. We were strolling around and waited for ayah, cuci mata.. and made the final comparison..actually, I know nothing about the toy..so I let her alone, lagi pun confirm derang cakap cina..

In point of fact that ayah is SLR-fan, he knows details at his best.. have encouraged my sister’s new hobby..haha, best la die..hmm, ape hobi aku ek.. Teringat masa dulu-dulu, we got embarrassed every time ayah bawak ‘kamera besar’ ..sekarang ni, in trend pula..


After Sg Wang, we went to ASWARA.., ayah supposed to meet his friends..tak tau la, kenapa ayah nak sangat kami masuk ASWARA dulu..hmm, apa bakat aku?



seronok la jadik model

the weekend : outing The Curve

to balance my previous knowledge-base outing :D We went to The Curve, fuhh after some time..and yes, the ‘saving sale’ was crazy inside!


..but the flea market outside was just very nice.. eh, susun atur baru ek korang?
huhu..susun atur
jualan murah..lensa kamera
yes, I always come out with those bahasa melayu gilenye ayat


Anyway, this is not a photo blog, it just that I’m in a mood to upload pictures, or maybe someday if I lose my memory,..isk, nauzubillah..or (sambung lagi tuh..) maybe I lost myself in different place, and I can’t remember where I did I come from (mcm Dou Mind Se tu..) and suddenly I can speak French! believe me I was ..and remind me to show you my certificate..

Anyway, this is us


..dear kerry, we are missing U



Kanye's courtesy



oh ya, we won't be around for New Year's eve..

with miss Pouty



..and mr Pouty? omg..
and last but not least...,



mari ke Vincci..mari2..murah2


the weekend : national museum






It was last week when I drove through the highway, the banner caught my attention, Traditional Weapon Exhibition: Mystery & Mystical Beliefs..very interesting!

.. so the very next day, we spent the evening visited national museum.. and it was the third time for this year. I really am a museum fan.. lol.. Luckily that any reading doings will be just fine for him.


I was thinking the same as you.. a collection of keris in clear glass racks with each label of it..or maybe swords, spears..any? Actually it was more than those.



The presentation held in way more creative in its effort to encourage us and gain the deep understanding of this traditional weapon. I was wondering how they beat the gun at those age..maybe this sounds lame, but hey.. So from my reading it was actually not just an ordinary weapon.. but were the soul and the pride of the carrier. Fuhh..semangat!




from the legendary..cepat teka!

Weapon also used as medium in the practice of traditional healing.. heh.. I met this man, who can turn out a gemstone, and it look like a clear diamond called body stone from his urmm.. mouth, I swear I saw it!

Other than Malay’s, there were also weapon from ancient Chinese, Indian and many others but I was actually fascinated by this Senoi’s weapon called Sumpitan, the blowpipe bamboo. They carved the bamboo with motifs used symbolizes nature such as mountains, tress, water etc..each with diverse meaning and story.. artistic soul

Now which one is water?

dream

Have you ever dreamed of a dream, in that dream.. I don’t know how to make it straightforward.. but, yeah in that dream you are recognizing the real part till you can still remind yourself that you’re dreaming! You can tell yourself the consequences for next time it occurs, like when you experienced on a complicated moment and you know how to get out of it. It’s like a chaining dream! So bizarre but this has happened to me several times.

It was a late evening, monochrome vision.

There was a long road ahead, embraced in dark and shady background. Trees and branches, the wind blew with barely a whisper.. and I realized that I got lost in deep dark woods area at twilight. I thought if I walked through, I could make it to the end but as I tried to listen to the silence, I just went too far.


Suddenly, I glimpsed of this house (normal, not the haunted look) and hiked towards.. I immediately opened the door and stepped inside. It was a nice organized home, and it really wasn’t scary and haunted at all. I kept wandered around like Gordilocks and the three bears minus the porridge..and ended with a long pause..and sigh, I’ve been here before.. I was very positive that I still recognized the wardrobe and its kit inside, the couch and everything! And as I looked through the windowpane, I thought this house was at the seashore-blue sky-gentle breeze the last time I 'came in'?..and yeah, I repeat..I had a chaining dream..and it was some time ago…

Ok back in the mood... I saw a portraits album and it merely evoked reflection in me,..but the last thing I remembered was when I stood motionless in front of the door, without trying figured out how to open it.. and suddenly there was the omniscient narrator of Desperate Housewives..
" be careful of letting yourself in, because you might not know how to get out"
I’ve told you my dream was fantastic!


Cut!.. “Open the door and let me go..” I forgot my script, again..

Ok.. I made the last part..ok, not funny.


Anyway, dream doesn’t have to be so serious next time..but a vividly emotional, not logical..but I welcome myself to the house again next time.. at different place, beside a scenery lake, maybe?
Sharing as above, this is something we might be interested in,..
..or just freak us out.

Dreams may no longer be secret with Japan computer screen

TOKYO (AFP) – A Japanese research team has revealed it had created a technology that could eventually display on a computer screen what people have on their minds, such as dreams.
Researchers at the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories succeeded in processing and displaying images directly from the human brain, they said in a study unveiled ahead of publication in the US magazine Neuron.
While the team for now has managed to reproduce only simple images from the brain, they said the technology could eventually be used to figure out dreams and other secrets inside people's minds.
"It was the first time in the world that it was possible to visualise what people see directly from the brain activity," the private institute said in a statement.
"By applying this technology, it may become possible to record and replay subjective images that people perceive like dreams."
When people look at an object, the eye's retina recognises an image that is converted into electrical signals which go into the brain's visual cortex.
The team, led by chief researcher Yukiyasu Kamitani, succeeded in catching the signals and then reconstructing what people see.
In their experiment, the researchers showed people the six letters in the word "neuron" and then succeeded in reconstructing the letters on a computer screen by measuring their brain activity.
The team said that it first figured out people's individual brain patterns by showing them some 400 different still images.

the weekend

I was literally exhausted yesterday, and it seemed like we spent the whole day at KLCC.
We went to KL PC fair and as always I hate it when the crowd caused traffic jam, with the limited parking space which assigned us to make a few rounds. Yeah, Gaby absolutely right! I was busy preparing my tudung and oil-blotting the unwanted excessive..also few snaps to check my make up done..BUT I replied to him.. “ what?this will be your most precious things when I died”, after he gave me his whatever-look.
But the level of hatred was heartbreaking! The result? We parked about 2 kilometers away from the building.

The hot sun wouldn’t give in for my preparation. I was all sweltering because of the heat, felt regret for not agreed with him to bring perabot cempaka punya free gift umbrella (eww..takkan nk masuk KLCC bawa payung? hi kitorang pegi perabot cempaka??) I surrendered my dear shoe sulking in the mud .. hihi, we crossed the grass to make it shorter walk.
Two hours and a half surviving the ocean of people yang macam sardin, not to mention hingar and assorted fragrance smells..urghh..That was like amazing. Serius macam dalam tin sardin....REMIND me not to repeat that again. I won’t!


So, we continued to Suria (Suria?) along the terowong memang dah terasa kesardinan lagi..ya Allah, what makes people as crazy as this! Everything was so unpleased except for the tall, huge Christmass tree.. Everybody was like stoned or busy SLR-ing this year end must have decoration.. but, they can’t beat my hunger for food..(sebenarnya dengki sebab tak ada SLR) char keow teow la..sebab tiba2 terlalu Little Penang, and actually we didn’t come across any char keow teow when we were at penang, haha..lame excuse! But it was very tasty, tak tipu..ok Little Penang kat atas tu..



Ouh ya before the late luncheon, (after I gave my eva green-look to persuade him) I spent a little time at Coach to find out latest designs they have..you know, perhaps for next online shopping..hikhik, ya laa..the observation (observe?) made me believe even more that online shopping is very good at the purpose to buy the best design at your affordability. You can look through many designs more than what they have and get much, much cheaper..unless you have friend assigned for conference in US and will help you to get it at Macy..kalau dia tersilap beli?naaa..

…tiba2 tertoleh kat pintu satu butik ni.. and I saw tiny note with “..only limited customer..”, I don’t think they should posted notice like this, La Fayatte pon takde tulis macam ni kot..kat 101 Avenue pon ntah sapa2 bole masuk..daaa..malas la.

Actually, it was pretty interesting to watch people doing their shopping agenda..macam2 perangai! I caught this 2 girls kat MNG..kelakar je..

Girl1: haa..macamana ni? Dah terpegang ni? Hikhikhik (gelak gedik)
Girl2: hammbikkkkk…

I'm not an expert , but this is totally fashion crime #1. fesyen bangla..ok la, unless org tuh hensem nak pecah..takpe
After the above observation, hubby told me that I should write something about where and how to invest money : Online Shopping..daaa..which I don’t think it was such a compliment..hehe..After wandering back and forth, we left and drove back home. Empty..hukhuk. One sweet day for Shopping Failure , saving success :P


sampai malam

career diversion


… or jobs I could have done better..

While driving yesterday, I dragged myself out of frustration with the traffic jam, or at least the hello-I’m new here-driver. I pictured myself in different situations.

Caution : you might find names repeat continuously, as these people whom I mingled for the entire of my life and so to their’s ..hohoho~


.:: 1: Sales Promoter / Personal Shopper ::.

I intended to write this after accompanied fizaros to Kamdar. Maybe she’s right. Maybe I should be a salesgirl or a promoter, be it in anyway. Often when we are doing our shopping leisure, I will be the most becok-joyah telling which they should grab..

Situation 1 : Searching for kain ela at Kamdar.

There were me, fizabelle and fizaroosli wandering around atau bersaie about 15 minutes before ‘we’ (the supporting friends) picked the absolute for her mum, when the kain2 begin to appear less orderly, due to our searching skills..yang sana nak, tak jadi..sini bawa turun, taknak pulaaa..

So I gave her a few choices, and I don’t mind of carrying the bundle of kain just to make sure it will perfect with the outside layer. And I don’t mind if people around think that I’m the sales promoter, because I talked loud and I’m doing exactly like what a sales promoter does.. maybe I’m better..maybe if the boss sees me, I will be promoted as a supervisor.

Situation 2 : hunting for the skin care at Guardian.

As a good promoter, I do not lie about products. I would not suggest products which I never use before. Aida, my friends always turn to me when she is up to for a skin care. It’s not because I have a crystal clear complexion but I’m not afraid using different products for my skin, please note that every products change will cost you new blemish. But would you rather throw away all the freebies from Cleo, or just try them?

So, from rack to rack I have had willingly consult the product ingredients, like what Salicylic Acid is for, or the right beads size for a forming wash… I could be the ambassador! ..wait, I thought Sodium Laureth Sulfate was dangerous or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate? ok yang ni belum khatam..ouh, maybe I should further for cosmetic course..thee hee hee..


.:: 2: Writer / Author ::.

When we were classmate back then, I was a secretary for our group in bahasa class. Most of the time, I penned the scratch ideas by fizaros or mesun (my groupmate) and the finishing part done by me..ohoo, sound professional? NO. I was bullied!

.. pasrah.

But I don’t mind it anyway, thanks to the complements they gave..ntah ikhlas ke tak.. nak jadi mak dah ko mesun..


.:: 3: Actress ::.

College life was the place I’ll always admire. There was a boy next door who I like to copy his gesture and the way he talked.. I don’t want to be mean, but we just did it for fun!

I act calm and cool when I’m about to kelentong..hoho~ so whenever my girls ask questions, I just gave the answers even sometimes I made them, hey BECAUSE I don’t want them to be disappointed, tak baik tak jawab orang tanya..

.:: 4: Counselor ::.

I felt honored when my friends trust me to share their life reveal. Maybe I’m not the best person to refer but I think I’m a good listener.

Sometimes I deal with stories enough to make my mouth fall open..haha ape la tuh..well, life is unpredictable. Even stranger I met pun tiba2 cerita about her deep dark secret.No! I'm too friendly?

But, the below situation memang ntahapa2..

Girl 1 : aku bgtau ko je tau..ko jangan bgtau orang lain
me : tak..aku tak bgtau sape2..ko jangan risau..nanti kite lepak kat oldtown, aku buat2 macam taktau la..

Sampai oldtown,

Girl 3 : weh.. die ^&*() % @ * ..tapi ko jgn bgtau die aku bgtau ko..ko wat2 taktau la ..

Me : (bedebah..)



If you’re in the same circle of friends, this is NORMAL.

*********************

Above all those, none was my previous full time job. Maybe I did it instinctively to spice up my life! And I'm planning a new job..rahsia dulu..I’m working on it, and it's still a 'career diversion.' So wish me luck!
p/s so what's your 'career diversion'?

aidiladha and lemang


We were web–caming (the three of us. khairiah @mum's, me and khairunie tried to fix ourself in 1 camera..girls gossiping :P) before I went to bed almost at 3 a.m last night. As the result, I woke up late for raya. After mandi kambing sunat raya, we rushed to masjid UKM. Surprisingly, ramai! nape budak2 suka main lipat2 telekung? isk..aku tak macamtu masa kecik. The khutbah was nice, I mean no political attached., I hate that.


Initially, I was doubtful of what to wear. Should it be so raya? Or tshirt covered with telekung?yang tak penting nih..

I wasn’t so excited for Aidil Adha sebenarnya, when was the last time I clapped for raya? But it was the first raya alone, he said. Ok then, let’s celebrate. So we had lemang, bought tepi jalan , serunding – last minute nampak kat warta, and rendang, some fruits.. minus satay..


Lemang memang RM10 ke sebatang? Or was it the very reasonable price? I wondered how they made the fire, since it’s been raining non-stop here..maybe pulut dah masak siap2, buluh tu perhiasan je kot..hmmm, nampak ok je kan? sedap..tak tipu!

In point of fact that ayah is SLR-fan, he knows details at his best.. have encouraged my sister’s new hobby..haha, best la die..hmm, ape hobi aku ek.. Teringat masa dulu-dulu, we got embarrassed every time ayah bawak ‘kamera besar’ ..sekarang ni, in trend pula..


After Sg Wang, we went to ASWARA.., ayah supposed to meet his friends..tak tau la, kenapa ayah nak sangat kami masuk ASWARA dulu..hmm, apa bakat aku?



seronok la jadik model

the weekend : outing The Curve

to balance my previous knowledge-base outing :D We went to The Curve, fuhh after some time..and yes, the ‘saving sale’ was crazy inside!


..but the flea market outside was just very nice.. eh, susun atur baru ek korang?
huhu..susun atur
jualan murah..lensa kamera
yes, I always come out with those bahasa melayu gilenye ayat


Anyway, this is not a photo blog, it just that I’m in a mood to upload pictures, or maybe someday if I lose my memory,..isk, nauzubillah..or (sambung lagi tuh..) maybe I lost myself in different place, and I can’t remember where I did I come from (mcm Dou Mind Se tu..) and suddenly I can speak French! believe me I was ..and remind me to show you my certificate..

Anyway, this is us


..dear kerry, we are missing U



Kanye's courtesy



oh ya, we won't be around for New Year's eve..

with miss Pouty



..and mr Pouty? omg..
and last but not least...,



mari ke Vincci..mari2..murah2


the weekend : national museum






It was last week when I drove through the highway, the banner caught my attention, Traditional Weapon Exhibition: Mystery & Mystical Beliefs..very interesting!

.. so the very next day, we spent the evening visited national museum.. and it was the third time for this year. I really am a museum fan.. lol.. Luckily that any reading doings will be just fine for him.


I was thinking the same as you.. a collection of keris in clear glass racks with each label of it..or maybe swords, spears..any? Actually it was more than those.



The presentation held in way more creative in its effort to encourage us and gain the deep understanding of this traditional weapon. I was wondering how they beat the gun at those age..maybe this sounds lame, but hey.. So from my reading it was actually not just an ordinary weapon.. but were the soul and the pride of the carrier. Fuhh..semangat!




from the legendary..cepat teka!

Weapon also used as medium in the practice of traditional healing.. heh.. I met this man, who can turn out a gemstone, and it look like a clear diamond called body stone from his urmm.. mouth, I swear I saw it!

Other than Malay’s, there were also weapon from ancient Chinese, Indian and many others but I was actually fascinated by this Senoi’s weapon called Sumpitan, the blowpipe bamboo. They carved the bamboo with motifs used symbolizes nature such as mountains, tress, water etc..each with diverse meaning and story.. artistic soul

Now which one is water?

dream

Have you ever dreamed of a dream, in that dream.. I don’t know how to make it straightforward.. but, yeah in that dream you are recognizing the real part till you can still remind yourself that you’re dreaming! You can tell yourself the consequences for next time it occurs, like when you experienced on a complicated moment and you know how to get out of it. It’s like a chaining dream! So bizarre but this has happened to me several times.

It was a late evening, monochrome vision.

There was a long road ahead, embraced in dark and shady background. Trees and branches, the wind blew with barely a whisper.. and I realized that I got lost in deep dark woods area at twilight. I thought if I walked through, I could make it to the end but as I tried to listen to the silence, I just went too far.


Suddenly, I glimpsed of this house (normal, not the haunted look) and hiked towards.. I immediately opened the door and stepped inside. It was a nice organized home, and it really wasn’t scary and haunted at all. I kept wandered around like Gordilocks and the three bears minus the porridge..and ended with a long pause..and sigh, I’ve been here before.. I was very positive that I still recognized the wardrobe and its kit inside, the couch and everything! And as I looked through the windowpane, I thought this house was at the seashore-blue sky-gentle breeze the last time I 'came in'?..and yeah, I repeat..I had a chaining dream..and it was some time ago…

Ok back in the mood... I saw a portraits album and it merely evoked reflection in me,..but the last thing I remembered was when I stood motionless in front of the door, without trying figured out how to open it.. and suddenly there was the omniscient narrator of Desperate Housewives..
" be careful of letting yourself in, because you might not know how to get out"
I’ve told you my dream was fantastic!


Cut!.. “Open the door and let me go..” I forgot my script, again..

Ok.. I made the last part..ok, not funny.


Anyway, dream doesn’t have to be so serious next time..but a vividly emotional, not logical..but I welcome myself to the house again next time.. at different place, beside a scenery lake, maybe?
Sharing as above, this is something we might be interested in,..
..or just freak us out.

Dreams may no longer be secret with Japan computer screen

TOKYO (AFP) – A Japanese research team has revealed it had created a technology that could eventually display on a computer screen what people have on their minds, such as dreams.
Researchers at the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories succeeded in processing and displaying images directly from the human brain, they said in a study unveiled ahead of publication in the US magazine Neuron.
While the team for now has managed to reproduce only simple images from the brain, they said the technology could eventually be used to figure out dreams and other secrets inside people's minds.
"It was the first time in the world that it was possible to visualise what people see directly from the brain activity," the private institute said in a statement.
"By applying this technology, it may become possible to record and replay subjective images that people perceive like dreams."
When people look at an object, the eye's retina recognises an image that is converted into electrical signals which go into the brain's visual cortex.
The team, led by chief researcher Yukiyasu Kamitani, succeeded in catching the signals and then reconstructing what people see.
In their experiment, the researchers showed people the six letters in the word "neuron" and then succeeded in reconstructing the letters on a computer screen by measuring their brain activity.
The team said that it first figured out people's individual brain patterns by showing them some 400 different still images.

the weekend

I was literally exhausted yesterday, and it seemed like we spent the whole day at KLCC.
We went to KL PC fair and as always I hate it when the crowd caused traffic jam, with the limited parking space which assigned us to make a few rounds. Yeah, Gaby absolutely right! I was busy preparing my tudung and oil-blotting the unwanted excessive..also few snaps to check my make up done..BUT I replied to him.. “ what?this will be your most precious things when I died”, after he gave me his whatever-look.
But the level of hatred was heartbreaking! The result? We parked about 2 kilometers away from the building.

The hot sun wouldn’t give in for my preparation. I was all sweltering because of the heat, felt regret for not agreed with him to bring perabot cempaka punya free gift umbrella (eww..takkan nk masuk KLCC bawa payung? hi kitorang pegi perabot cempaka??) I surrendered my dear shoe sulking in the mud .. hihi, we crossed the grass to make it shorter walk.
Two hours and a half surviving the ocean of people yang macam sardin, not to mention hingar and assorted fragrance smells..urghh..That was like amazing. Serius macam dalam tin sardin....REMIND me not to repeat that again. I won’t!


So, we continued to Suria (Suria?) along the terowong memang dah terasa kesardinan lagi..ya Allah, what makes people as crazy as this! Everything was so unpleased except for the tall, huge Christmass tree.. Everybody was like stoned or busy SLR-ing this year end must have decoration.. but, they can’t beat my hunger for food..(sebenarnya dengki sebab tak ada SLR) char keow teow la..sebab tiba2 terlalu Little Penang, and actually we didn’t come across any char keow teow when we were at penang, haha..lame excuse! But it was very tasty, tak tipu..ok Little Penang kat atas tu..



Ouh ya before the late luncheon, (after I gave my eva green-look to persuade him) I spent a little time at Coach to find out latest designs they have..you know, perhaps for next online shopping..hikhik, ya laa..the observation (observe?) made me believe even more that online shopping is very good at the purpose to buy the best design at your affordability. You can look through many designs more than what they have and get much, much cheaper..unless you have friend assigned for conference in US and will help you to get it at Macy..kalau dia tersilap beli?naaa..

…tiba2 tertoleh kat pintu satu butik ni.. and I saw tiny note with “..only limited customer..”, I don’t think they should posted notice like this, La Fayatte pon takde tulis macam ni kot..kat 101 Avenue pon ntah sapa2 bole masuk..daaa..malas la.

Actually, it was pretty interesting to watch people doing their shopping agenda..macam2 perangai! I caught this 2 girls kat MNG..kelakar je..

Girl1: haa..macamana ni? Dah terpegang ni? Hikhikhik (gelak gedik)
Girl2: hammbikkkkk…

I'm not an expert , but this is totally fashion crime #1. fesyen bangla..ok la, unless org tuh hensem nak pecah..takpe
After the above observation, hubby told me that I should write something about where and how to invest money : Online Shopping..daaa..which I don’t think it was such a compliment..hehe..After wandering back and forth, we left and drove back home. Empty..hukhuk. One sweet day for Shopping Failure , saving success :P


sampai malam

career diversion


… or jobs I could have done better..

While driving yesterday, I dragged myself out of frustration with the traffic jam, or at least the hello-I’m new here-driver. I pictured myself in different situations.

Caution : you might find names repeat continuously, as these people whom I mingled for the entire of my life and so to their’s ..hohoho~


.:: 1: Sales Promoter / Personal Shopper ::.

I intended to write this after accompanied fizaros to Kamdar. Maybe she’s right. Maybe I should be a salesgirl or a promoter, be it in anyway. Often when we are doing our shopping leisure, I will be the most becok-joyah telling which they should grab..

Situation 1 : Searching for kain ela at Kamdar.

There were me, fizabelle and fizaroosli wandering around atau bersaie about 15 minutes before ‘we’ (the supporting friends) picked the absolute for her mum, when the kain2 begin to appear less orderly, due to our searching skills..yang sana nak, tak jadi..sini bawa turun, taknak pulaaa..

So I gave her a few choices, and I don’t mind of carrying the bundle of kain just to make sure it will perfect with the outside layer. And I don’t mind if people around think that I’m the sales promoter, because I talked loud and I’m doing exactly like what a sales promoter does.. maybe I’m better..maybe if the boss sees me, I will be promoted as a supervisor.

Situation 2 : hunting for the skin care at Guardian.

As a good promoter, I do not lie about products. I would not suggest products which I never use before. Aida, my friends always turn to me when she is up to for a skin care. It’s not because I have a crystal clear complexion but I’m not afraid using different products for my skin, please note that every products change will cost you new blemish. But would you rather throw away all the freebies from Cleo, or just try them?

So, from rack to rack I have had willingly consult the product ingredients, like what Salicylic Acid is for, or the right beads size for a forming wash… I could be the ambassador! ..wait, I thought Sodium Laureth Sulfate was dangerous or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate? ok yang ni belum khatam..ouh, maybe I should further for cosmetic course..thee hee hee..


.:: 2: Writer / Author ::.

When we were classmate back then, I was a secretary for our group in bahasa class. Most of the time, I penned the scratch ideas by fizaros or mesun (my groupmate) and the finishing part done by me..ohoo, sound professional? NO. I was bullied!

.. pasrah.

But I don’t mind it anyway, thanks to the complements they gave..ntah ikhlas ke tak.. nak jadi mak dah ko mesun..


.:: 3: Actress ::.

College life was the place I’ll always admire. There was a boy next door who I like to copy his gesture and the way he talked.. I don’t want to be mean, but we just did it for fun!

I act calm and cool when I’m about to kelentong..hoho~ so whenever my girls ask questions, I just gave the answers even sometimes I made them, hey BECAUSE I don’t want them to be disappointed, tak baik tak jawab orang tanya..

.:: 4: Counselor ::.

I felt honored when my friends trust me to share their life reveal. Maybe I’m not the best person to refer but I think I’m a good listener.

Sometimes I deal with stories enough to make my mouth fall open..haha ape la tuh..well, life is unpredictable. Even stranger I met pun tiba2 cerita about her deep dark secret.No! I'm too friendly?

But, the below situation memang ntahapa2..

Girl 1 : aku bgtau ko je tau..ko jangan bgtau orang lain
me : tak..aku tak bgtau sape2..ko jangan risau..nanti kite lepak kat oldtown, aku buat2 macam taktau la..

Sampai oldtown,

Girl 3 : weh.. die ^&*() % @ * ..tapi ko jgn bgtau die aku bgtau ko..ko wat2 taktau la ..

Me : (bedebah..)



If you’re in the same circle of friends, this is NORMAL.

*********************

Above all those, none was my previous full time job. Maybe I did it instinctively to spice up my life! And I'm planning a new job..rahsia dulu..I’m working on it, and it's still a 'career diversion.' So wish me luck!
p/s so what's your 'career diversion'?

aidiladha and lemang


We were web–caming (the three of us. khairiah @mum's, me and khairunie tried to fix ourself in 1 camera..girls gossiping :P) before I went to bed almost at 3 a.m last night. As the result, I woke up late for raya. After mandi kambing sunat raya, we rushed to masjid UKM. Surprisingly, ramai! nape budak2 suka main lipat2 telekung? isk..aku tak macamtu masa kecik. The khutbah was nice, I mean no political attached., I hate that.


Initially, I was doubtful of what to wear. Should it be so raya? Or tshirt covered with telekung?yang tak penting nih..

I wasn’t so excited for Aidil Adha sebenarnya, when was the last time I clapped for raya? But it was the first raya alone, he said. Ok then, let’s celebrate. So we had lemang, bought tepi jalan , serunding – last minute nampak kat warta, and rendang, some fruits.. minus satay..


Lemang memang RM10 ke sebatang? Or was it the very reasonable price? I wondered how they made the fire, since it’s been raining non-stop here..maybe pulut dah masak siap2, buluh tu perhiasan je kot..hmmm, nampak ok je kan? sedap..tak tipu!
