Happy Independence Day!!

Make your celebration meaningful with your patriotism.

Unlike others, I'm not celebrating this historical moment anywhere but to stay at home and am about to hit the bed. I'm going a to have a long journey back to Seri Iskandar tomorrow morning with my brother and most probably will be breaking the fast alone.


Happy 2nd Anniversary to us, sayang.

I know that you're taking the flight to Miri tomorrow afternoon and will be living in that humongous ship for 4-6 months.

Just so you know, I've never been this sure about my future. With you, everything seems so true and believable. It has been a meaningful-2 year with you sayang. I hope we'll be counting for more years and decades.

I love Malaysia! And I love this particular Malaysian too. You! ;D

Not Just Yet


Currently I am numb.

SailorBoy is leaving. This time the ship is heading to Yemen and maybe the USA. Whatever it is, wherever the ship goes, the fact here is this is the beginning of waiting.

I don't hate waiting for him. I will always wait. But boy, I'm going to have a hard time missing you. And it is not easy when parts of your body are taken away from you. How are you going to live without them? Hardly. Especially when you are used to have them with you. All the time.

I Am My Mother's Daughter.

I think I am slowly turning into my mom.

She will choose one night of her weeks or maybe month to sit on the chair with her directory and her phone in her hand. That is the time when she will attend all the massages that are stranded in the inbox or that need to be given follow ups. She will spend the whole night to call her friends and sisters whom she has not been keeping in touch with for like months, maybe. Or maybe weeks. She will laugh and draw her surprise face and whatnot in between the calls and conversation.

That's just exactly what I did just now (or last night, following the time frame). I texted those whom I have always intended to text but yet to do so, and called them who are maybe expecting for my calls.

See, I'm becoming like my mom. It's just that I don't have my own directory to store all my friends' number. I'll reach those who are in my phone's contacts list.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow....

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high.
There's a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue.
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.
Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, Away above the chimney tops.
That's where you'll find me.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then - oh, why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,
Why, oh, why can't I?

This evening on our way back to Seri Is we saw a rainbow when we dropped by Medan Gopeng fetching Adib. I was so excited upon seeing it after years of wondering "lama dah tak nampak rainbow...". It was like once in a blue moon event to get to see the rainbow today. :)

Out of all the colours red is my favourite.

There's nothing about me that makes people remember me but my shoes (think so). Colours is one of the ways to let them speak on my behalf.

Btw the connection here is really getting on my nerves!! Nitenite people! Till then when the connection is at the peak~

Body Massage, Anyone?

Well, it's already 2.45 a.m and I am still awake. Not so fresh yet my eyes refuse to sleep. Ini kan malam minggu. Thus, here I have been seating watching online TV series that I missed for like 4 hours. By the way, actually there's one thing that I really really want right now. No, not shushi - had it for dinner with friends. Okay, advertisement: it is a 'Unagi Time' at Shushi now. There are many types of unagi shushi. It lasts until 31st August. To all unagi fans, go crash your Shushi King now~

Okay okay back to my wish.

Right now, how I wish I was at a spa having a deep aromatherapic massage for the whole body. Especially the legs and feet. Aaa..the waist too. And my back. There are many reasons for those muscles pain and whatnot - not having enough rest, not sleeping in a thousand ringgit bed and mattress and too much of walking. Well, walking around in heels or maybe stilettos is no easy walk. I'd rather say it is a quite painful walk at the end of the day. Plus, climbing up the stairs and the bumpy roads. Oyy, not to forget the cuts and blisters my shoes gave me for the first few times wearing them (I mean some of them. Some are good girls). My most valuable asset is now losing its values. Yes, I have another choice of not wearing it but I've spoken up my mind as it makes me look professional, elegant and well, maybe a bit stylish. To be honest, I feel sexy wearing heels. Ha ha!

Dah! Dah! Mari mari siapa nak bagi free whole body massage?

Eh. Eh. Dah pukul 3. Mari bersahur. Nanti siang nak puasa~

I notice that...after one month...

  • I have started nagging in class.
  • I have started showing my anger to my students (I dabbed the duster onto one of my students' face as he was talking when I was busy explaining).
  • I even started to feel like throwing away the textbook that I am holding when the students are talking in my class when they are not asked to.
  • I have started feeling tired like my whole body is aching; during weekend.
  • I have started to appreciate weekends more than I thought I would.
I felt guilty for dabbing the duster part but to my defense, he deserved that, didn't he?

Those changes connote that I am serious about my job, am I not?. If only those students are serious with their studies.

Btw, we still haven't gotten our first pay. How am I going to survive? I'm still alive and having enough of everything that is necessary, kudos to me.
Even though I still feel that I need more than that.

Oh, I love my life. I'm serious. Alhamdulillah.
I love living in Ipoh and Seri Is. Alhamdulillah. Eventhough sometimes I am immuned already with things that are offered in Seri Is.

But thanks to Adeb and Moon who are always making me happy.

And get to spend weekends in Ipoh is more than enough to me when there is nothing to do in Seri Is without the transportation and maybe, entertainment. Thanks to Moon and Kakteng for having me in.

P.S: Most probably we're going to the UTP Convo Fair tonight. New thing that Seri Iskandar has to offer. My mentor, whose husband is the staff there said there are many fun things that I might like there. Lets see how fun it is tonight.

Kuala Kangsar I

At Medan Laksa dan ABC in Kuala Kangsar you can get...

...this ABC and...

this cendol...for less than RM3. And...

this delicious laksa for RM 2.20...

FOR two! Yes RM2.20 for two plates of laksa!

I had a fun trip in Kuala Kangsar. Thanks to Moon for taking me there. In Kuala Kangsar I got to see the legendary MCKK and Masjid Ubudiah. The mosque is so beautiful and the domes are covered with pure gold. The interior of the mosque is also beautifully built by black and red marble. We also went to Galeri Sultan Azlan Shah.

Oops! I got to go! More reviews and pictures in my next post okay.

Hallo. I'm Still Alive.

Hallo again...

It's been a while since my last post. I have nothing much to say here, I suppose; as I usually share everything with my lovely friends whom I get to laugh and be crazy together. Well, maybe I blog when I have nobody to tell my story to. For example right now, I am alone in my room, my roomate (mentor) has a morning class this morning; so do Adib and Moon whose classes are also at 8 a.m. And I, I have nothing today! My 9 a.m class is canceled for my students are scheduled to go for their site visit. Meanwhile, the meeting that was supposed to be in the afternoon was also canceled. Thus, here I am, alone, got nothing to do or maybe refuse to mark the essays as I am so damn sleepy and can't even think straight! And oh, I am hungry too!

But finally it is Friday. Fridays are always the most dearly day for those who are working. Well, sedar tak sedar dah sebulan kerja ni. Through out this one month, I am positive to say that I have changed a lot, in so many ways. I don't know where to start but the most obvious change is that I have started to send my clothes to the laundry for wash and yes, for ironing. Yes, all my baju kurungs for next week are at the laundry. Pemalas ke? No lah. I am too tired to stand there ironing my 5-7 outfits to work. I chose to do a marathon ironing as I realized that to iron every night is quite tedious and I might possibly change the plan to iron my clothes the next morning in which I am afraid I would wake up late. To play safe it is, I choose one night to stand there, ironing everything.

Food. During my first few weeks here, I was so amazed with the food here. I was thrilled to try different eating place and food as I am sure that they would taste good. Don't get me wrong. The food here is still good, delicious and nyummy. Maybe it is me who's getting bored of eating outside. I want to eat at home. Something that we cook ourselves. Okay, waiting for the first pay to get the stove and other home appliances. Cepatla gaji!

Adeh~ Laparnye! Oh, this weekend I'm going to Moon's nenek's house in Kuala Kangsar. She's taking me there to try the famous Laksa. I don't know how famous it is but the Perakians said it is nyummy. So, I am on again for food hunting! She's also taking me to see the beautiful Msjid Tunku Ubudiah. Just so you know, I am actually a big fan of art. I don't speak art, but I do appreciate it. I love monuments, buildings - modern and old. Sounds like I should have changed my major earlier. So I am looking forward to be there. I even heard in Tronoh itself there is one place where all the old buildings are located. That area is very old even a filming production chose that place for the setting. I shall try that place too.

Okay, it is almost 10 now. I am going for breakfirst with Moon after she finished her class. Today, I promise myself to plan my lessons for next week. (*puke!puke!*) I mean the whole week for next week. I am packed with replacement classes!! Adoyaiii!!

P.S: I love my job. I really do. I love my students. They are fun. eventhough ada yang perangai macam ta*i
