Wonderful Jan: Dreaming Again

Assalamualaikum. Annyeong.

The vacation ticker on the right sidebar says another three weeks to go! Yeah!!! Hardly can't wait. Macam berkurun sudah aku mengikat badan di rumah. Cuti hujung tahun pun berperap di rumah sebab semester break belum start hence ndak boleh berangan lebih mau bercuti2 sakan.

Still, I was given the opportunity to spend my year end with good companions. Alhamdulillah.

Anyway, in three weeks time I will have my most awaited holiday with Bunda! Ndak dapat holiday jauh2 sebab poket gue sudah kering. Nevermind lah kan janji dapat spend time with her. Itu yang lebih penting. Insya Allah, panjang umur murah rezeki...akan aku jauhkan lagi peta untuk bawa Bunda jalan2

Last year, bawa Bunda naik Bukit Kokol. Somewhere outskirts of KK city. Ini alkisah percubaan beli hati sebab few weeks lepas tu aku tripping K-pop di Korea. 
I left her with the children for about a week...pasal tu kena usaha keras membeli hati. Tapi malang, misi bodek duit belanja ndak diterima pakai. Gagal ke laut.
Our first out-the-country vacation together. Masa ni Bunda baru resigned from her eight-to-five work. While waiting for the kedai makan to complete its renovation & start operating, we stole sometime for a short vacation together. It's indeed a bliss holiday for us. Trip I-pop jak masa ni sebab Hallyu belum menerusup jiwa lagi.
Us before the temple at Lake Bratan. I miss this moment! Minus the ever bulging tummy

Insya Allah, semua itinerary sudah siap. Lengkap & padat. Kunun! Settle bab packing & we're ready to go. Haraplah semua yang aku plan berjalan lancar. My humble gift for Bunda it will be. Kalau bagi hujung2 takut aku ndak cukup budget sebab lupa diri beli itu ini. Better kan bagi awal tahun. Ngek.

Sejak poyo buat jadual for my solo trip last June, aku jadi addicted pula buat itinerary ni. Ntah siapa yang kasi jangkit ni kan? Biasalah kalau orang suka bermimpian. That hasn't include perangai sedih jadi orang kuning dalam googlemap. Lagi sandi. Sekian.

Wonderful Jan: Luncheon Date

Assalamualaikum. Annyeong.

Oh yeah, finally aku berjaya menjadi sang Penangguh paling tegar! Pegang title & sudah sign agreement sampai mati. Paling berzaman mau update. Malar masuk draft folder. 

Last week, ada acara luncheon with the YS girlfriends. Sempena masuk tahun 2013; kira ni first get together kami. Kizzy sudah kerja balik after her 44 days so called berpantang. As usual kalau kami jumpa, jam berputar super laju. Ntah apa jak isi cerita. Macam2 topik dicover. 

Apa yang penting, dalam sibuk kami sama urusan harian...and diorang plus urusan rumahtangga lagi, kami tetap cari masa untuk jumpa. At least once a month. Over lunch pun ndak pa. Apart from facebook & instagram; ndak lah kami totally depends on technology for updates kan.

On the first day of 2013, I uploaded a photo of me dining at Sushi King. Kizzy commented & asked are the meals serve suit her tastebuds. Since si Mama Icha tu ndak pernah lagi makan di situ, Zai & I planned to just bring her there. Alang2 tunaikan permintaan dia dari penat memikir mana mau mentekedarah. Daia yang last aku jumpa on her wedding reception last year; joined us as well.
Macam aku yang baru habis pantang! Diorang suka bawa aku keluar time aku sangat masam. As in, masa aku sangat ndak bercomel. Kalau tau lunch bersama, harus aku pakai ala ayu...touch up sikit. Ini muka togel gila bah dibawa keluar. Al kisah memang make-up case aku stay di rumah sepanjang masa. Hatta secalit bedak tiada di muka...apalagi segaris eye-liner. Sungguh tiada natural beauty ya hence sibuk gebang pasal touch up bagai. Harap maklum.
Ini tidak adil...tidak adil...tidak adil bagiku. See those three ladies. Berbaju kurung sungguh ayu. Semua imej ala korporat...si Err juga imej macam makcik jual rokok di pasar. Huhu saiko oii. Sila bersyukur seadanya jangan komplen itu ini. Salah siapa sendiri kunun mau sempoi kalau pigi cafe? Erk?!

Anyway, the ever brilliant moi accidentally deleted the previous post titled; From Chichil to Chompok. Sudahlah jarang & susah mau update, sana lagi mempintarkan diri men-delete bagai kan Bie. Memang paling sekian perangai kau.

Wonderful Jan: Annyeong Chichil

Assalamualaikum. Annyeong.

Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Allah gives me another opportunity to adopt a kitten today. Words couldn’t explain how happy I am.

On my way to cafe this morning, I received a call from Bunda. She told me to stop by any vet to buy med for an injured cat. I know that Bunda & her workers feed a cat & a kitten at the restaurant. The Mom & her child will come to the restaurant early in the morning for breakfast, lunch in the afternoon & later dinner in the late evening. Literally they aren’t stray cats because they sleep at the garage at a house behind the restaurant.

Upon being told that the Mom was bitten & beaten by five stray dogs;  I rushed to a nearby vet. Bunda said the Mom was severly injured; bleeding & too weak to move.  The one clinic I happened to know is in Kingfisher. Situated right next to the clinic I always bring my workers for their medical check up.

Alas, when I reached Bunda’s place...she’s already gone. I was late by 5 minutes!!! It breaks my heart upon seeing the wounds on her body. She must have suffered too much. I hold my tears when I saw the bloods on his coat. I put her on my laps & I could smell her urine. Her coat near her rear legs was damped. God! The pain must have been unbearable she pees on her own coat.

Suddenly I heard a soft meow. And I saw a kitten under a car; to scare to go out. Seems rather confuse as if he was searching for his mom. He ran out from his hiding place as soon as one of Bunda’s worker laid down his Mom’s remain on the road. He walked slowly; encircling his dead Mom. That definitely breaks my heart even more. How can I leave him alone on the street like that? He has no one to look after him. His Mom died protecting him from being harm by the stray dogs. Seeing him so lost...I immediately made up my mind. That is to bring this kitten home. Regardless what Bunda has to say. All I know now is to save him. What if the stray dogs come again later tonight? It scares to me to imagine what’s gonna happened to him.

Alhamdulillah, Bunda didn’t oppose my intention to bring the kitten. I told Bunda I have name for him already. Chichil! The initial C has to be used of course.

I lost Chubby to a viral disease. Chumi & Cicil fell down from the window while I was at work. Chumi had never been found while Cicil; I saw him at one of my neighbour’s house not long after his disappearance. Being taken care so handsomely I decided to just let him be with his new family. Bukan rezeki aku untuk jaga. It’s not like he’s being abandoned nor abused there. If that’s the case, harus aku pigi menyerang & jemput Chichil balik.

Now, I hava a new child. Named Chichil. NOT to replace the previous Cicil but to celebrate his present healthy life. The moment I made up my mind to take him, I realized the bigger responsibility awaits me. Insya Allah. Rezeki from Allah comes in various forms. Having Chichil is one of them; I believe that.

Chichil took his first vaccine shot just now. I bought him a collar band; specially designed to kill fleas. He lives on the streets, remember. His coat must have them. Smart way to prevent infection among the children at home, yes?

I can’t wait to take him home & bathe him! Kasi wangi. But I can’t imagine what will Cafe reacts later on? What will he do to show his jealousy? Some kinda rebel act, perhaps? They will be the bestest of friend in no time...let’s pray for that. Ngek.

Ya Allah, tidak ku harap balasan dari Mu dengan apa yang aku perbuat. Kerana aku tahu, tiada aku punya hak untuk itu. Rahmat Mu, rezeki yang Kau kurniakan kepadaku sudah lebih dari cukup. Tidak terbilang olehku. Namun aku bermohon, andai mampu aku meminta...dengan apa yang aku telah perbuat, moga Kau kurangkan dosa ku yang menggunung tinggi.

Wonderful Jan: Kpop! Ngek!

Assalamualaikum. Annyeong.


I listened to their music ever since The Boys; their single in 2011 came to my hearing sometime Nov, last year. I fell in love with the music...and eventually the girls. Nine very hardworking & pretty young lasses. I started reading their stories after their debut. Ain't gonna called myself one of the Sone as yet though I listened to their songs almost every day. Not to forget youtube-ing their MVs.

Because those mellyjelly so-called cute-ish kinda songs are never my taste. Unfortunately, most of the girls' songs are like that.

So-nyeoh Shidae latest single; I Got A Boy...really showed that the girls have matured through the years. Regardless what others say...yang penting aku suka lagu tu. And yeah, MV adalah super comel. With that PINK background, shall I say more?

Sekian, terima kasih.

Wonderful Jan: Friday Night

Assalamualaikum. Annyeong.

It's been a while since I last had an evening out with friends. I almost forgot how the famous Gaya Street looks like at night. In the weekdays to be more specific. Thanks to Ms U for bringing up the idea to dine at one of the most-talked cafe in town. Party*Play; Life Style Cafe. Ms G & I have been planning to come to the cafe's branch in Luyang since last year. But we never got the chance to execute the plan due to family & work commitment. 

Alhamdulillah, wish came true last Friday. Ms J & the husband will be going back to Kolumpor on Saturday hence we took the chance to meet up the day before their departure. I went there after work; fortunate enough it's the exam month. Less students came to the cafe so I got to go back early. 

Cut the story short...the husband & wife had to leave early for they had another makan session with her in laws. It's their last night in KK; everyone seem to want to bid goodbye to them. Kenalah divide masa dengan saksama. 

Because I acted bloody brilliant that day...kenalah satisfied ambil gambar guna camera hape jak. Brought the camera with me but the memory card is still attached to the lappy at home. What a bummer! Lucky me! Miss Sam has pretty reliable night shot option. See the results below. Less editing job done but they look clear enough. Sharp lagi. 
My dinner; black pepper lamb chop, marvelous chocolate dessert & lemon pink. Grateful I am for the food Ya Rabb! But too big a portion for me, I guess next time if I were to dine here I'll have to share. Only the lamb NOT the dessert. Sedap gila I'm craving for it at this very moment ok!
Group photo. Taken from Ms G's fb album. I don't have much trust with stranger holding Miss Sam. With the night shot is on, kalau orang ndak biasa mesti blur habis gambar. Nanti aku sendiri seteghes kalau hasil nan ado.
Muka puas hati...food is good, ambiance as well. They have live band performing after 9p. Not sure if it's on daily basis or only in the weekend. As Friday night considered as the beginning of a weekend, right? 

Anyway, I have sealed a deal with my diet program. Am gonna splurge on food twice in a month; which I called it Cheat Day. This will only be executed in the weekend though. 

Insya Allah, sila jangan poyo setakat bazir liur menggebang ya Bie.

Edisi: Year End

*outdated entry*

Assalamualaikum. Annyeong.

It’s the second day of a brand new year. Or is it the fifth day already? Fine, I've put this entry in the draft folder for three busuk days! 

Anyways, nothing quite interesting happened as yet. I had sushi luncheon date with Bunda yesterday before we headed to Angah’s house in Telipok. Right, am not going to story-telling about what I did on the new year. 

Pictures below taken few days before 2012 ended. Literally telling how I spent my last three days in 2012. Be warned, this entry is loaded with too many pictures.

On the evening of the 29th, I attended one of my close guyfriend's wedding reception at One Borneo ballroom. Went there with the Rio's. Harus car pool sebab Ms G pity me who have to drive all the way from Beverly; alone. Told her many times already...do not show too much love for I tend to take that for granted. Huh?!

I personally love this customized magazine. Photos during their pre-wed photoshoot are printed in this magazine-like album. Hmm...nanti time aku, macam mau tiru ni konsep. Tettt. The doorgift was filled with my favourite ferrero chocs! Makan time2 tu juga ah.

Bunting I super like, too! Semualah bah like kan Bie. Yang attract aku haruslah the color! Such sweet combinations; white & pink & black.
Ms G.
Us ladies & the children. Friends from my diploma years. 
The newly wed. Yeah the groom finished that drink in the jug; in one shot! Not the one in the glass ok! Enough to tell us how happy he is for getting hitched.
We were seated at the back; near the entrance door. Hence no pictures with the pengantin at the stage. Nor there are pictures during the cake cutting ceremony. Too lazy to drag my lemak-full ass to the stage area.
Gambar solo adalah perlu. Loving my peplum dress I bought online from Colourcyle*Boutique. I shall get rid of those fats residing in my arms & tummy asap! Putting this dress on, I tend to hunch more in order to hide the drawers at the belly area. Ok kenapa perlu suddenly promo peplum bagai?! And kutuk lemak sendiri? Ugh.
Congratulations to both of u. Thanks for inviting. I pray for ur marriage be filled with happiness, many good fortunes & blessings.

On the 30th, we had a simple bbq at Olumis Pogun. Official name for Syl+Unang'snew home. It was a double celebrations; in commemoration to the year end & house warming. Jackie & husband who went back to Sabah for their Christmas holiday joined us as well. It's not like everyday we could meet each other like that.

A place called home. Congrats!
Buat busy padahal the lady who went down to KK all the way from Tenom; did all the cooking. We only helped with the preparation. 
Guys did what they do best? Kerja panggang memanggang definitely serah sama diorang. 
We had the exchange gift session as well. Simply to make the evening merrier. 
And of course 'hadiah masuk rumah baru' as we called it. Happy hostess she is. "Ndak payah sudah beli ni...ni...ni"
This goes to the frame. 

We parted quite early that evening as Yours Truly still need to work the very next day.

I didn't do anything special on new year's eve either. Stayed at home with Bunda; layan aktiviti solo. Me with my Kdrama marathon (again??) through the lappy...and the Madam stick in front of the tele till midnight. We ain't into the countdown kinda thing so; staying at home is always the best. Ndak stress stuck in traffic jammed...because road blocks were everywhere that night. As what I've been told.

Edisi: Kasih Sayang

Assalamualaikum. Annyeong.

I can't wait to go home...and play with the children. Forever my stress reliever. Looking at their pictures while being at the cafe make me miss them more.

Will buy something for them on my way back from work later. Rewards for behaving well this week.


p/s Pictures of the cat bonsai I saw in fb recently really break my heart. How could human be that cruel, heartless?!?
