on selawat ke atas Junjungan besar Nabi Muhammad

Balik dari sekolah on Monday, Lydia told us that there were a lot of wild monkeys near the daycare centre. The nite before, memang ada keluar kat news, under segment 'Aduan Rakyat', yang lately banyak sangat monyet2 liar berkeliaran kat area2 Sementa, Klang. Apparently those monkeys demanded more than bananas. Monyet2 ni berani bertindak sampai memasuki rumah penduduk, and they were not scared of people since diorang lebih ramai.

I was quite worried. So was Lydia. So dia bagitau pasal tu, dia kata semua orang dok je dalam rumah and just watched the monkeys from far. then she continued,

"Lydia diam je masa tgk monyet2 tu. dalam hati, Lydia baca selawat.."

"kenapa?" aku tanya balik

"sebab Lydia takut, teringat dalam tv. pastu, lydia baca la selawat, mak kan kata, bila kita takut, baca je selawat banyak2.."

uummm.. yup I did told her that. I told her when i was small, our house was hit by twister (i hv an entry about this), since then i was afraid every time its raining, so my mom selalu suh berselawat utk tenangkan hati yang resah gelisah tu .. so even until now.. am still scared and even worse now after series of natural disaster.

so ok, fair lah dia takut kat monyet2 yg ganas, dia baca selawat, kan?

now i need to send another messge to her, baca selawat bukan cuma masa takut sahaja, tapi amalan yg baik bila2 masa sahaja, sebagai zikir .. (ok, reminder to self)

I dont know if she can take it, tapi no harm to do, right?

Friday for the ladies :-)

I am not a big fan of ayam penyet, an Indonesian food that has become very popular among Malaysians. i have tried ayam penyet from few restaurants ..but so far none came to my list of favourite food. Normally they were too dry. Some of the restaurant served it with soup and some not. 


But I had it today anyway. It’s because I had lunch at ampang park (again) and there are not many food outlets there and I have been to all of them (except for the non-halal one, of course – Oldtown White Coffee is halal rite?-anyone can verify?).. and this Ayam penyet Best was just opened, next to Manhattan Fish, replacing the expensive-but-not-so-good –no-wonder-it-closed Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa.


The chicken looked as though it has been frozen for ages! It looked blue (to black). The beancurd was way too dry! But I like the sambal though.. it was hot.. and tasted great to me :). But the place is quite good for hangout if you take the indoor seats. Outdoor seats were hot during lunch time and can ruined your make-up (ehehe since now I am putting on make-up to office, I must consider this point, no?). ok despite the food too dry, I actually left the plate clear! Haha


Ok that’s about it, I am going to review about the food or the restaurant btw (I just did it I guess) . Actually I went there for another friendly Friday lunch. :-) This time, Ellyn and Mauze. Mus was supposed to join but she couldn’t make it last minute. Next time hopefully!


Catching up as usual. Good news from them, Alhamdulilllah. Rezeki kawan2, I am happy for them. Lunch was on Mauze, thanks babe!! Wish you all the best in your future job! :-)


Great lunch ladies!

Everything happens for a reason :-)

It has been ages since I blogged about my rebanamaya friends. It’s because the last time I met few of them was somewhere end of last year. It was when we watched Hantu Kak Limah Balik Rumah at KLCC and ended I lost my iphone. (My mistake though, and everything happened for a reason, I believe, which is true, as now am a proud owner of ip4.. eerkkk… sorry, this is not a show off statement okay? I am just being honest, and lesson learned for me to be extra careful).

Thank you to Delinn, for organizing the last-minute gathering cum birthday celeb for our dear Arc. :-) HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARC!

Fortunately most of us are on twitter so we managed to catch up on each other through it. It’s a good thing.. at least when you meet, you have familiar  issues to talk about, rather than have to ask what are their current happenings .. go twitter! If you are still not having one, go get it, and follow me! Haha!

Arc, Delinn, Yam, Angah, CL, Wan, Kong, Deo, Razi and Joe were there. Good to see everyone were in good shape :)  The almost 3 and a half hours session was full of laughter, as usual :-) Overall, fun. But I didn’t eat much … just had 2 small portions of ayam golek, which were actually balance from Delinn and Yam! Ahahah peace! But I ordered one whole chicken to bring back home, so I guess u know why I didn’t bother to eat much in there. :-)

Thank you to Angah for the lift (going) and thanks to Kong also for the lift (back to PJ).

I was about to reach Setia Alam when suddenly I noticed my laptop was not in the car! So had to go back again to Ayam Golek. Lucky they kept it for me. Thanks bro cashier!

So I’ll remember to behave myself. Not to be too hyperactive in any gathering, esp. with Rebanamaya – or I’ll be coming home leaving something behind! *sigh

OK, pics .. not many ..

Beautiful Sunday :-)

Phewww! As I mentioned in my previous post.. I was so looking forward to ‘something’ to happen on last Sunday..

My husband laughed when I told him I wanted to take basic make-up class.. Not that he discourage me, but from the sewing class I took last year.. He said he is not sure if this class can really benefit me.. ekeke ok maybe he was right .. but he didn’t stop me though … which am glad! :-) I am glad that he allowed me to spend a day with my girlfriends and he will take care of our kids .. I am touched!

Like other events with the girls, this one too started from email discussion, or we call it daily spam-in-office-hour-to-have-some-time-off-and-tense-release.

Whatever.

From spam discussions we made it into a real event. As we like to see those beautiful faces, we asked ourselves why not taking a class where we can get something from it, learning something and at the same time having fun?! It is indeed a great way of hanging out with friends other than food hunting, rite? Or can I say it’s a good way of spending money? Ekekeke.. OK that depends.. For me, yeah! Why not? We all worked hard (right?), and we deserved it! Hahaha.. what a statement!

Ok OK! Enough rambling! Straight to the point, hahaha! Please lah… I always want to tell the whole story from A to Z on how something was started. SOrryy! 

Shara suggested Bunga, a make-up artist from www.sichantekjelita.com to be our trainer. The place was at Putrajaya. In the morning, my husband dropped me at Shah Alam and from there I went with Sol.. ehehhe! Nice journey rite, sol? Many things we talked and then we took the wrong way due to my inability to use PAPAGO in my phone lol! Ended up we followed direction from google map.. Meeting point was at Petronas P9. The place looks familiar to me. No wonder.. Few of my friends live there and I have been to this place quiet few times…

Members of the floor, me, Diana, Shara, Soulie and Dani and missing in the list are Mauze, Mas, Jannah and Zaza. But we had additional members, non-GLCians Lisa, Nor, Delailah, Julie and Maya.

1st 1 hour, was intro to the creams, powders brushes and sponges… OMG! I think these was more difficult to digest compared to technical items in SAP. Ekekekek. At least for the 1st few mins .. I was like,,wth that she is talking about .. and she was using all these beauty terms?? Smokey?? Socket?? Dap?? Omg! I lost! Hahaha! Some of us were taking notes (hats off to Sol, Shara and dani !) some of us recording it using their phone and cams .. and me? Nope. I was just focusing on Bunga, and her model. And I didn’t stop 'oooohh'ing  and 'waaahhh'ing every time Bunga made new steps and showed us the result… I was stunned gitu.

And then time to practice.. lemah sket this part ekeke.. It was almost 1 PM and I was hungry.. but we just proceed. Nothing to describe here, exept fun! It was fun.. a room full with excited ladies, playing with colors, brushes, sponges .. what else to say? Fun!

The most challenging was doing the eyes. I really messed up this part! Drawing eye-brow was so hard! And applying eye shadow were tedious.. no wonders guys always whining about girls taking soo  much time to get ready for outings .. ehehe… I normally took only few minutes to get myself ready .. hmmm . no wonder ..


After so many corrections, finally am done with my eyes .. not so satisfied but I don’t want to stress myself too focusing on that .. I’ll improve next time .. don’t want to spoil my mood by the way .. then applied lipstick.. and done! Ops.. not yet .. not until we put eye lashes!! I didn’t bring one so had to buy from Delailah ,.. ehehehe … I guess eyelashes helped to the overall make-over! :-) and when everyone done, we started to camwhoring! Ahahah! Fuiyooh! I actually couldn’t  believe that I have done the make up on my own! Wahaha! Not bad for someone who had never done it!  I was a different person! Hahaha!

Ok, pics, u may have seen them from Diana’s blog … we left Bunga’s place with happy feeling.. errkk.. model feeling pon ada .. we continued the cawhoring session in the green area below Bunga’s apartment .. jadik lah! It was around 4.30 when we finally wrapped up!

All in all.. it was great, fun, exciting and we really enjoyed ourselves!  For more photos of transformations.. please take a look at Diana’s blog. Check it out!





 Bye! :-)

Friendly Lunch :-)

And .... It's Friday again! :-)

I kinda enjoyed this week. Not so busy not so relax .. I managed to get up quite early every morning,early enough to get everything prepared before Fahren woke up at 6. and because of that, i was able to start early to work, and reached office by or before 9. for record, for the last couple of months, my check in time mostly at 10am. So starting this week no more 10AM. Good achievement so far in April it seems. Hoping to maintain this for the whole month :-). At least for my own satisfaction.. getting better in time management. :-) bravo!

project team is sizing down .. as we are approaching project completion, most subcontractors are released from the team.  Kinda sad to see people leaving .. but that's normal anyway. am pretty sure we'll bump into each other again someday..as this is a small business world. Development works have completed (do i make it sound like we are in building construction? ekekek... its actually BI portal development--as if you care??!) and we're into testings and trainings and all the preparations for the final Go live which scheduled in June.. good we had previous phase's as pilot so had some lessons learned at least we know what to expect from this phase. Good. All is great ..all is great*sing it as in 3 idiots*- please watch this movie!!*

oppss.. can't believe am talking about work here. dull, no?~

ok.. what else? oh.. today's lunch time-well as most aware, friday is supposed to be a long-lunch-break, isnt it? no? ok at least for me then. hhuhuhuh! not really correct though, because actually i can go to a long-lunch-break anytime i want .  i went to ampang park, 5 stations away from here.. which for me its consider as near hahaha! well I went to ampang park when i was working in PJ u know!it's like from end to end.. so, pasar seni to ampang park?? really not a big deal .. lalalalala


Great lunch. Had it with my college friends, Juita and Farah. There were 8 of us during college, and now its quiet difficult to gather. Our normal gathering would be during hari raya .. but last hari raya I missed it..so the last time I saw them was during iftar last year. lamanya!!...Juita just completed her 2 months maternity leave.. she had a dougter to make it a pair, after her 2 years son. Farah is still in honeymoon phase .. and i can see she has put some weight .. huhuu cant help to notice that, Farah! but its okay..u are still looking good! :-) montokss oopss..

Meeting old friends are always great, no? now next in list.. nexr week will be meeting close buddy, Mus, Ellyn and MAuze .. gonna have a LOT LOT LOT to talk about! soo excited! and before that --

The boy is mine :-)

Hi peeps! 

I have never had a fever that caused a 3 days sick leave. Not until last week. I had to revisit the doctor asking for different medicines. Alhamdulillah, today am feeling much better

My kids were sweet and loving to me when I was sick--ok, they are sweet all the time not only when am sick, hahaha!. As I couldn’t take care of them, my kids were still sent to the babysitter during daytime. Honestly I felt guilty to do that, but it was hubby who decided. He said when you should rest, you rest. Like a veto gitu kan.. So I was supposed to rest but hubby caught me tweeting so he took the phone away and forced me to sleep.

And in the evening when the kids got home, Idlan came running to me and asked, “mak dah sihat…?” with the cutest voice that melted a mother’s heart. He is a pre-schooler now, and he is our ‘TV’ with his acts and words that always make us laugh.

His observations to things around him are very good. When I ate fruits, he said to me, “mak, makan la banyak2 buah tembikai tu… nanti mak cepat sihat” and when his brother cried, he said,”mak, adik susukan la adik tu..dia nangis..” so I teased him, “kalau abang Lan nangis, mak susukan jugak ye?” and he replied fast “tak payah lah, alan susu lah sendiri!”  and giggled. Soo cute! He called himself ‘alan’ in short of abang Lan. He is ‘abang’ to everyone including Lydia. When Lydia wanted something from the kitchen and scared, he volunteered himself to accompany. He said, “Jom alan temankan. Mana ada kumbang kat sini!”

One day he said, ”kalau nak memancing, bawak la badminton”. I laughed out loud. I couldn’t figure out why he came up with that so I just laughed as though what he said was meaningless. Then hubby replied to him,”abang Lan, bukan badminton.. itu namanya tangguk ikan..” opss .. ohhkayyy.. Now shame on me… he was referring to the net that people use to catch fishes! OMG! He actually can relate the net and badminton.

Smart boy, isn’t he?

Mondays are not always blues :-)

 Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was fine. Spent Saturday morning watching my 3 beautiful children playing together (not really 100% watching as I was running here and there doing some chores). Later in the afternoon we went to Tesco, our so called favourite weekend getaway.. :-) ekekeke


Sunday was fine too. We Spent at MIL’s place. I was glued to Sophie Kinsella’s Twenties Girl. Once started, couldn’t stop. Keep on reading til very late at nite.. well actually it was today at 3am when I finally finished all chapters. Nice story.. sweet one and as usual, funny~


~and now Iam feeling sleeeeeepy ZZZZzzzz~


I have to write about this. I got my confirmation letter and its effective today. Alhamdulillah :-) The thing is, our financial  year was from Apr to March, so they will only have KPI review to permanent staff confirmed before or on 31st march. So technically i am not included. Too bad, isn’t it? I was just  4 days behind. What a shame~


But I suppose not everything should follow the rules. Allah know best. When I have already accepted the fact that my past 6 months here will not entitles me for any monitory reward as in ‘bonus’…. My boss mailed me, with ‘Good News’ as his 1st sentence. And that brings a smile to my face. Alhamdulillah, bila Allah berkehendak, ia akan berlaku :-)


ok it doesn’t mean I will get bonus, but at least I will be reviewed. It is already an appreciation, isnt’t it?


Till we meet again~

positive tones

April is here :-)

Hopefully April will be as interesting as March, or better! Eh, it looks like am back to track here .. got to write something here almost in daily basis... yeyeh!

No big plan yet so far for April but I can see some interesting events ... hmmm hope everything will goes well, amin.

Wait.

Actually the first interesting thing happening in April is today. :-) *grin
Alhamdulillah.. I have completed my 6-months-probation period in my current job. It's a happy news of course, but at the same time, it means more notice period for me in case i want to resign--hmm why am i thinking of that? .. well, as i said, just in case... huhuhu!

well, no increment though, but it doesnt mean i can't be happy about it rite? so, what about a self-reward then? hehehe.. why not kan??? Now, really look forward for weekend and syukur lah tomorrow is Saturday. yey!

ok, so let us all hoping (praying) for everything to be fine and smooth for everyone in April, and the months after!

So please help yourself! saya belanja! yey! -- erkk.. sorry boss, amik nama. this was actually came from my boss, not for me but for everyone yang attend training wakkaka ....
