March and April will be hectic for me. Bukan hectic mana lah sangat. Hectic duit! Banyak duit nak guna for this month for many, many, many things. For my never-ending driver's license, for my online boutique, nak hire a graphic designer to revamp my blogs, online shopping for personal and Krabi use, nak stock-up new makeups, nak simpan duit for Krabi next month, nak pay-up my mother, groceries, house bills and im in dire need of a good facial and manicure pedicure service. Kalau mcmni lah gaya nya, income 10k per month pun tak cukup kan?

Tiba-tiba tersedar yang i dah lama tak post up new pictures here. Pictures of my friends, activities semua ciput je. I should take more pictures after this ...

Supposedly today nak p visit my dad's grave, but i woke up late (cause i slept around 9ish am tadi), then bila bangun hujan pulak until now. Must go within this week. Nak clean up the grave and also my grandparents' graves. Its been awhile. Speaking of deaths, a good friend texted me last night, telling me that her grandfather dah passed away.

To Salina; Im very sorry to hear about the loss of your granpa. I know he meant alot to you. Please accept my deepest condolences on you and your family's loss. He's in a better place now. May he rest in peace. Please be strong.

There's so many things that i want to write, but i dont feel like squeezing everything in this post ... I'll write more tomorrow. And i want to share this with my beloved readers;

"O Allah you are my Lord, none has the right to be worshipped except You. You created me and i am Your servant and i abide to Your covenant and promise as best i can. I take refuge in You from the evil of which i commited. I acknowledge Your favor upon me and i acknowledge my sin, so forgive me for verily none can forgive sin except you."

This is taken from a '25 Ways To Enter Jannah' article. It is said that if someone recites this invocation during the day, and if the person should die then, he will be from the people of Jannah. And if you recite this at night, and if you should die on the same day, you will be from the people of Jannah.

So dear readers, the best way to do is to save this in your handphone, and recite this when you're awake and before you go to bed. Because im sure, that the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night is check your phone right? This isn't much, but hopefully it'll benefit all of us, insyaAllah.

Ada Apa Dengan Cinta?

Ku lari ke hutan kemudian menyanyiku
Ku lari ke pantai kemudian teriakku
Sepi, sepi dan sendiri aku benci
Aku ingin bingar
Aku mau di pasar

Bosan aku dengan penat
Dan enyah saja kau pekat
Seperti berjelaga
Jika ku sendiri

Pecahkan saja gelasnya

Biar ramai

Biar mengaduh sampai gaduh

Ah ... ada malaikat menyulam jaring laba-laba belang di tembok keraton putih
Kenapa tak goyangkan saja locengnya
Biar terdera

Atau aku harus lari ke hutan ...
Belok ke pantai?

Dear diary ...

Today marks the 6th year of my father's passing. I don't have much to write.

Except that i miss him so much.

May Allah bless your soul, and forgive you for all your sins, and may you be awarded a dignified position in Jannah. Amin.

I'll always miss you.

Lucky Number Slevin

After reading Sabrina's blog, i totally changed my mind on what i wanted for my wedding. Everything became clearer and easier. Alhamdulillah. Thanks a million to Sab. Alot of infos of haram dan halal, dos and donts that she wrote is very useful to use as a guide for me to plan my wedding in the future.

I used to dream of a wedding, it was nothing big ... but its a very different vision from what i have in mind now. I dont feel the need to do 'bersanding' anymore now, i dont feel the need to give 10 hantarans, i dont feel the need for menepung tawar and such. Things that are not essential, not necessary to do but everyone is doing it because of 'adat' that isnt as important as what is 'harus' and 'halal'.

I still have a long way to go to understand more about Islam. And im learning now. Alhamdulillah i can think much clearly now. But i dont deny sometimes terleka jugak. Of course. I am still young. The feeling nak enjoy lagi, i wont deny, its still there. But semakin hari, semakin berkurang. Sometimes i feel old. Older than my mother perhaps. But sometimes i feel so young and all energetic. I just cant make up my mind what i want and what i dont. But i hope with the guidance of few people, i can be strong and keep pushing myself to do whats best for me in life and in the afterlife, insyaAllah. I can see that i am much better and much stronger now compare to before. Alot of things still nak kena improve, but im happy that im progressing and working on my flaws. I dont know why, but talking about all this ... sometimes terasa sebak sangat. I've done alot of things, God knows alot of things that im not proud of. And im so blessed and lucky that i am 'awake' now. Thanks a million to my pillar of strength, my boyfriend yang tak putus putus nasihat, yang tak putus putus pushing me to be a better person, yang tak putus putus loving me. Thank you for making me a better person and for being the bestest friend in the world.

Today marks the 7th year of our relationship. Happy anniversary E.

ILU. Always have and always will.

On a perfect day
I know that i can count on you
When that's not possible
Tell me can you weather the storm
Cause i need somebody who will stand by me
Through the good times and bad times
She will always, always be right there

Sunny days
Everybody loves them
Tell me can you stand the rain
Storms will come
This we know for sure
Can you stand the rain

Love unconditional
Im not asking this of you
We've got to make it last
I'll do whatever needs to be done
Cause i need somebody who will stand by me
When its tough she won't run
She will always, be right there for me

Weddings And All Its Mumbo Jumbos!

Lately, few of my friends tanya, why i tak jadi a wedding planner or an event organiser since i suka plan parties, trips dan sewaktu dengannya. Minat tu memanglah minat and whenever something i plan berjalan dengan smoothly, perasaan satisfaction tu tak dapat digambarkan. Macam sewaktu dalam kelaparan teramat sangat akibat tak makan for 15 hours then dapat one nasi with lauk pauk yang sedap. Its like heaven on earth!

The main reason why i tak nak be a wedding planner is that i know i will never forgive myself kalau ada cacat cela in the wedding yang i buat. In my opinion, all weddings should be beautiful, perfect and magical. And knowing me, i don't think i can get one done within the budget given if its small. And if the person hiring is willing to pay then its okay, if not of course susah. Kalau nak cantik, duit pun kena cantik. Tak sanggup i nak buat wedding orang sekadar main tangkap muat je. Sebab kalau i buat, i buat sebab minat dan bukan sebab untung. I tak nak buat anything gitu gitu je sebab its THEIR WEDDING DAY for God's sake. And i also nak use all fresh flowers only so macamana tu? Fresh flowers dah sedia maklum pricey and if nak guna banyak of course lah banyak duit yang nak kena pakai. Thats why i tak nak. It being the most important day in a person's life so seriously i cannot and will never forgive myself if ada benda benda yang buruk terjadi or if i tak dapat buat/plan the wedding mengikut my taste.

So disebabkan benda benda ni, to help my friends/readers yang bakal-bakal berkahwin, i nak buat a secondary blog to help out and to make your life easier. I'll be your e-wedding planner, ha ha boleh gitu?

Will tempek the url here bila dah dapat a name for it okay!

Once you kill a cow, you gotta make a Big Mac right?

My life is getting much better each day, alhamdulillah. Yesterday dapat the sample dresses from an online boutique and sangat sangat puas hati dengan everything. The material, size ... etc. And not only the dresses sesuai pakai dengan hijab and also those yang pregnant pun sesuai because of the stretchy material so its flexible la. Tak sabar nak tunggu the rest sampai! Ha ha i am so excited. Tapi tak set up a site lagi for the online boutique. Still thinking whether nak buat sendiri a simple one ke nak suruh orang lain buat so that nampak lah fancy shmancy sikit kan?

Besides the online boutique, i am also planning to do something else but its kinda big so i dont know if my mom would approve ke tak because i think she still doubt my kesungguhan nak buat something, because she knows me very well. Procrastinate je kerja aku ni. Ya Allah, harap dapat lah buang tabiat buruk ni! Dah melekat macam apa binatang tu dekat pantai/lumpur yang selalu melekat berdua tu? Shit dah lupa nama la. Color hitam cam hodoh tu. Please if anyone know leave me a message okay, ha ha. So dua benda penting yang i've to settle now is the online boutique and driving license. I feel so malu okay sebab dah tua bangka baru tercangak-cangak nak ambil license, especially masa dengar ceramah 5 hours too, gila so malu semua budak budak. Please lah this time nak pass and tak nak procrastinate lagi! Kesian my mom dah habis duit ribu riban for me. To my mom if you're reading this ILU okay and thanks a bunch for everything, you're the greatest mom ever, period. This is not a bodek statement okay, this is for real. Its fo' shizzle ma' nizzle!

Tadi lepas sembahyang Jumaat went to my FPIL's house. Seperti biasa kalau p rumah Ezar perutku akan dipenuhi oleh makanan yang sedap sedap belaka. Lunch makan nasi lauk sayur apetah with ayam goreng and taukua sambal yang oh sedap! Then dinner makan koey teow goreng pedas pedas and Domino's Pizzaaaa. Eeei sedap. Kalau hari makan makanan sedap kan best! Patut badan sekarang gemuk cam tong drum, 24/7 online, tidur, makan, repeat 'till pengsan. And now lagi malas nak keluar since dah addicted to online shopping. Hari hari kerja click sana click sini, order sana order sini. Kalau naik taxi p Queensbay return fare dah RM35. Kalau online boleh dapat satu jeggings ke, singlet ke apa ke. Kan berbaloi baloi namanya tu. Sejak aktiviti online shopping ni semakin menular, lagi bertambah tambah lah kemalasan diriku. Banyak sangat benda yang cantik online. One click je esok postman sampai rumah bagi salam and parcel. So convenient kan!

Btw, to those yang keep on asking which shopblogs yang i selalu shop, cuci cuci mata boleh click kat bawah ni. 

Tapi awas sapa sapa yang tangan gatai tak reti dok diam please pejamkan mata and move away from this entry. Sebab online shopping is really addictive and to those yang ada online banking please stay far away from all the evil blogshops!

Yellow Cab Trappings - For those yang suka Supre, F21, Urban Outfitters, etc
Butik eDast - Hijabs, anak tudungs and such
House Of Allure - Long short dresses, tops ...
Velvet Ribbon, An Old Flame, Winkstick, Pumpkin dan banyak lagi harap maklum kalau nak list down sampai esok lusa pun tak habis sebab my list keeps on growing everyday.

Next week nak p Hatyai, next month to Krabi, macam mana nak simpan duit ni?

1001 Mimpi

Lately ni suka mimpi pasal someone who used to be my childhood sweetheart. Tapi bukan lah mimpi ahem ahem, mimpi biasa biasa ja tapi mesti nak kena ada gak muka dia. This year saja dah few times. Kenapa haaa? Yang peliknya, dah lost contact dengan dia for almost 10 years plus kot dan sejak switch from my old school to CGL memang dah tak nampak batang hidung dia eventhough kalau balik rumah my granma atau apa memang tak nampak dia. So why dia ni keep on appearing in my dreams? So weirddd man. The question is, adakah ini satu sign or whatever? Im not big on dreams and shit but its really weird lah sebab mimpi apa apa saja mesti ada muka mamat ni. Nak kata hensem, rupa tu boleh tahan lah. Bf sendiri pun tak keluar dalam mimpi sebanyak dia ni. So the question is, should i call him? (Dah dapat his number from a friend sebab tak puas hati pasal benda ni). And if i call him, what should i say? He's not married yet so lucky me boleh cakap apa apa saja sesuka hati tapi nak kata apa bila dah contact dia? That i keep on dreaming about him and rasa tak puas hati sebab tu call dia? Call geli ahhh nak call dia nak cakap apa pun taktau. Haha but selagi tak call selagi tu tak senang duduk and tertanya tanya. Damn. Takkan kot jodoh aku dengan dia? Nooooooooooo.

Lelaki Oh Lelaki!

I find myself asking the same question over and over again. Apa yang dicari oleh kaum lelaki sebenarnya? I pelik. Ramai yang ada gf cantik, bini lawa badan bergetah segala tapi in the end, still cari 'makan' kat luar or in other words, main kayu 3 ... 4 atau 5. Bila ditanya, jawapan typical yang diberi yang buat aku nak lempang their faces is that lelaki boleh kahwin empat. Kalau sunnah Nabi tu lah yang di junjung tinggi sangat, sunnah Nabi yang lain, tak ingat pulak nak buat kan? Kalau pasal nafsu ni, apa pun sanggup redah.

Sometimes, i feel so kesian dengan the females out there yang ditipu. (That includes myself, im talking from my experience also yang pernah di tipu dan menipu. Biasalah, dulu budak budak, baru belajar nak tengok dunia, sebab tu gedik. Now im 24. I can think well and i've changed so much from my old self.) Sebab if they're the reason why the partner buat hal, its acceptable, tapi sometimes they're okay, treat the partner well, but still the partner tak puas jugak yang satu. What is the problem actually? If rasa tak habis enjoy lagi, why settle down? Tak kesian ke kat anak bini? And most importantly, tak kisah ke pasal dosa pahala?

Yang perempuan pun satu, rela sangat jadi gundik. Zaman sekarang perempuan dah desperate. Tak kisah macamana pun. Lelaki orang pun sanggup asalkan dapat benefit. Kalau cinta datang tulus dari hati, mungkin boleh accept jugak. Tapi ni tak. Sanggup jadi gundik sebab wang dan harta benda, dalam erti kata lain sanggup nak hidup mewah dengan cara yang mudah. Bukak rabbit hole, business sure laku. Of course lah. Ada ke orang nak bagi beg Chanel dengan cuma bersms atau bercakap phone? One in a million kot. And also, to you gundiks out there, tak fikir ke, maybe sekarang you buat kat perempuan lain. Tapi Allah SWT tu kan maha adil. Mungkin sekarang you berseronok and gedik-gedik atas kesengsaraan orang lain, atas kedukaan orang lain, tapi satu hari nanti, perempuan lain pulak akan buat benda yang sama. Atau maybe Allah tak tunjuk dengan cara tu. Maybe dia tunjuk dengan cara lain. Rumahtangga tak aman, marriage tak bahagia, takda zuriat ... etc. Jadi beringatlah dari sekarang sebab sekarang ni Tuhan bayar cash. Sekelip mata saja bala tu boleh datang. Kalau rasa hidup tak senang, tak aman, ask yourselves ... what did i do to deserve this? Why is my life like this, unhappy like others? Look deep down and from there, maybe you'll see what you've done. Hidup dah jadi tunggang langgang sebab karma dah datang and say hello mumbo jumbo.

And to all the gatai-gatai guys out there, kalau dah dapat someone who's perfect as your wife/girlfriend please treat her well. Semuanya dah cukup. Apa yang nak cari lagi? Kalau nak kira pasal nafsu ni, sampai kiamat pun tak habis. Kalau tak, takda lah cerita tok wan, tok ayah, rogol cucu cicit sendiri, rogol anak jiran dan sebagainya. Thats nafsu. Kalau tak dapat kawal, musnah hidup. And trust me, kalau hidup bergelumang dengan dosa dan nafsu, buat apa lah, memang takkan aman. You can have all the money in the world, all the Birkins, Ferraris, penthouses but you'll never be happy and satisfied with your life. You might think you are, but really ... you are not.

Renung renungkan lah my readers. Im not perfect. I still have a long way to go to be a good Muslim. This is just my two cents. Kalau kita tak ingat mati, keep on doing perkara perkara yang keji, if esok lusa ajal kita sampai, and tak sempat bertaubat, tak sempat nak ask Allah for His forgiveness and we leave the world dengan semua dosa dosa yang tinggi mengunung cam Gunung Everest, pahala kita pulak sekecil siput babi ... there's no turning back, no second chance for us, because we had our chance when we were alive but we didn't use it.

Nafsu boleh dikawal. Its up to yourself. When there's a will, there's a way.

Shweeet Dweaaams ... Heee ...

Okay, since two friends of mine posted this thing on their FB status, i feel terpanggil to write a post about this.

I fucking hate babytalks, period.

I don't understand how can some people (with their age over 20 year old, mind you) find all this digusting babytalks cute? I don't find it cute at all. WTF? What is wrong with you babies people? How old are you? A fucking 2 year old? Jebussssssss!

For example: "shweet jewk" or "sayee shukerrr" or "bawwuu buchukk" and the disgusting list goes on.

Bahasa Melayu and English is quite simple. Why do you want to trouble yourself fingers typing another few more extra words? You can write "jewwk" as "je" or "kowwt" as "kot". You might find it cute i tell you, but it really is disgusting to other. And its not only me saying this, trust me ... there's alot of others out friend who would agree on this.

So what im trying to say is, please age your age. You don't have to be cute when you're old. You can be cute in how you act, but not in your words please its too much to bear. I've a friend who uses this babytalk all the time and i honestly tak paham every single word yang dia tulis. And i don't know how some people can understand sebab tengok sekali je buat aku pening kepala okay! Your face doesn't go together with the way you talk. Its embarassing. Try to be normal like others please? Please try ... before i go into my 'Red Queen' mode.

Makan. Makan. Makann.

Went out with my mom yesterday to renew my passport for my upcoming Hatyai & Krabi trip. Im really excited to go on these trip esp. Krabi but at the same time im worried about my hamsters. Will they be okay if i leave them for 5 days? My mom la punya pasal ni, p tanya pulak like this now hilang all the excitement .... Haih.

Went to Feringghi with Anna and Sazzy around 9ish to check-out about the transportation to Krabi. I think i kinda prefer the company in Chulia Street more than this Feringghi one. Idk why. Then went for our dinner because the three of us were starving mad. Had Kompo fish which is ikan masak with dried chilli and gajus kot, i think. And another two dish was sotong goreng tepung and kangkung goreng belacan. Food was good. But the Kompo fish wasn't as good as when Anna and I had it for the first time.

I slept at Anna's last night, usung si Jedi sekali and godknows what other things that made my bag so heavy macam nak stay over for a week. Our plan was to go jogging lah petang tadi, but hujan pulak so tak sempat nak jog today and tak sempat nak rasmi my kasut. Poor thing tersadai dalam kotak for months dah. Being the mengada girlfriend that i am, i asked Ezar if his mom rajin to cook me my favourite sambal udang for today and of course lah boleh! So after Subuh he went to the market and bought RM30 worth of prawns. Went to his house after Maghrib for dinner. As usual my FMIL's cooking memang tak pernah menghampakan. Zara had fun playing with Jedi. And i had a huge smile plastered on my face when im done because the food was good. Dah lah lunch Anna's mom made nasi lauk yang sedap, dinner pun sedap. Gemok lah camni. Ada hati nak p jog konon. Macam lah nak jog everyday!

After dinner, sembang sembang the girls came to pick me up around 11pm and we went to see Alice In Wonderful. The movie was okay lah. I prefer the old version though. I had it when they try to remake any of the old cartoons, movies and shit. Buat rosak filem je.

4.36am and im still awake. Dok window online-shopping. Is it too early to buy clothes for Krabi? The trip is almost 2 months away. Whaddaya say?

Life's A Peach

PMS yang paling teruk in my 24 years of living, earlier today. Could barely move and eat. The pain was so excruciating but alhamdulillah is all gone now, and im feeling better.

Im planning to go to Hatyai soon. Next week or end of this month. But i need to renew my passport first. I've never been to Hatyai before and im a bit nervous to go because to me Hatyai is not a safe place. But few friends who went there assured me that its fine so okay, i hope my trip will be a good one. Im going to scour the flea and night markets for some things for my future plans. Hopefully i'll get what i want.

That aside, i've moved Jedi (my hamster) from my granma's house to my aunt's house (where i live) because i feel that Jedi has been such a good boy lately and come to think of it, Jedi is always good, always behaving himself and has never bitten me before, unlike Peaches. Peaches is grumpy at times and please don't be fooled by the cute face and furry fur because she can be naugthy. She bit me 3-4 times and it was so painful and you should see the blood coming out of my fingers. She has very sharp teeth. My hamster, Lulubelle died because of her. I don't know what happened that night because they usually sleep together and i usually went to bed late (after Subuh) but i was so sleepy that night i slept before midnight and the next morning i went to check them out, Lulu was sitting quietly in the corner, soaking wet. I thought it was because of the water from the water bottle but i was so shocked to see that i was her own blood. I was too late to bring her to vet. She died on the way there. I was so sad, i cried. I really cried because i loved Lulu so much eventhough i could never hold her in my hands (she's not the tame type) but i loved her still.

Sometimes it scares me how quickly you forget someone after that person is gone. The memories will always be there but somehow after awhile you don't remember how the person really is anymore and it is so hard to remember because she's/he's not there.

Sometimes when i think about my dad, im terrified because i am forgetting him. His face, his smell and his voice ... I am scared i will forget all of it. I carry his photo with me everyday but its just a photo, nothing much. I wonder, can i go through another 24 years and still remember all this details about him when right now its all slipping away. Time goes by so fast, taking away all the precious memories i have of him. What an evil thing to do. What a cruel, cruel thing to do.

I miss you Abah, always have and always will.

A Thought ...

Perubahan dilakukan dengan perbuatan, bukan dengan percakapan. Dan janganlah kita menidakkan hukum hakam agama, dosa dan pahala kerana ianya telah ditetapkan. Kita bukannya malaikat atau maksum. Kita cuma manusia biasa yang takkan lari dari membuat kesilapan dan sebagai manusia biasa, kita terikat kepada perintahNya. Jika terlalai, bangunlah dengan cepat dan jangan sesekali biarkan diri hanyut di dalam dosa kerana dunia telah menunjukkan tanda tanda kedatangan Kiamat. Berubahlah sebelum terlambat. Sebagai manusia yang mudah alpa, mudah terpengaruh, i feel blessed to have someone to guide me. Alhamdulillah now my life is better than ever.

Terrific, Terrific Weekend!

As all you Malaysians know, Babyface came down to perform here on Friday as part of his Southeast Asian tour and Malaysia tanahairku yang tercinta is chosen as his first stop!

This is sedikit sebanyak coretan of what had happened on Friday, 5th of Mac and Saturday ...

My flight pukul 1.10pm, and i went to airport at 10ish am. Checked-in at 11am thinking it was 12pm. (salah tengok jam!). Alone and bored to death i went to the cafe because i was starving. But there was nothing interesting there so i bought a hotdog bun. Nasib baiklah before i makan i sempat tertengok the bun, ya Allah how shocked was i to see that the bun dah moldy. So i told the auntie and she replaced me a new bun, but same thing happened with that bun. I tak nak make a scene because i wasn't in the mood so i told her its okay and opted for a Maggi cup instead of godknows whats in the other buns kan! Bosannn menunggu and dah lah takda Wifi. Pastu tetiba ternampak Farah Fauzana & Faizal FBI. Terubat jugak lah kebosanan aku. Fafau bercermin mata gelap dan memakai cap. Maybe tak nak peminat perasan that she's there kot?

On the plane, i slept like a baby and was awake for less than 10mins untuk sumbat the mango juice & strawberry muffin into my mouth. Lepas tu sambung tidur. I was so goddamn tired, sampai je kat airport Subang i took a cab to my hotel. Supposedly a friend offered to pick me up but i couldn't wait for him because i was super sleepy. Went to my room, charged my phone and slept for almost 2 hours.

Then bangun, siap, siap mandi and went to JW Marriot to pick-up my concert tickets from my cousin. Then took a cab to KLCC for the concert. 5ish pm ... traffic in KL at that time was reaaal bad. Sabar, sabar punya sabar, akhirnya i sampai KLCC at 6.30pm. Masa tu i dah start gelabah because i thought everyone dah sampai sana then when a contacted a few friends, including my sister, they were all still stuck in the traffic. So i ngangalah keseorangan until my sister finally came at 7.45pm! I was damn pissed. Luckily i bumped into Liyana and Azrul 20mins before that. At least ada jugaklah kawan nak merepek and of course, sempat jugaklah snap one or two photos, thanks to Azrul.

Liyana and i

My sister, Diana

Sarimah was the emcee for the night. She's truly gorgeous in real life! And Najwa who is the daughter of current Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister, Tan Sri Dato Haji Muhyiddin Yassin opened the show with few of her songs including the one she did with Malique Too Phat (i don't know whats the title and too lazy to Google). Her voice memang truly beautiful. Sangat speechless bila dengar dia menyanyi! And Babyface came out around 9ish! Sangat lambat. But masyaAllah his voice memang exactly the same as in his tapes, vids etc. I was very starstrucked and i think i screamed the whole time when he sang my faves such as Mama, I'll Make Love To You, End Of The Road ... all by Boyz II Men, Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton, Everytime I Close My Eyes and When Can I see You Again (unplugged, acoustic?) ... WCISUA was the last song he sang and everyone gave him a standing ovation! His voice is truly beautiful and ticket yang berharga RM453 was so worth it! ILU Babyface!

Najwa doin' her thang

Sarimah in the middle


I saw few celebs there ... Natasha Hudson who is drop dead gorgeous in her killer outfit, Puteri Sarah with her boyfriend, Ning Baizura with husband, Noryn Aziz sat in front of my seat, Anuar Zain, Syed Hussien and Zain of Ruffedge, both with their partners/wife, Tengku Zawyah (Dato K's ex wife) who sat in the same row as me and my sister, Tengku Siska of Hairdreams Extension who is very petite and very gorgeous! I love her hair, outfit and that canary yellow Chanel handbag of hers! Ahh so jealous! And i also saw the founder of product Biodex and Paklah's SIL, who else ... KJ yang sangat handsome! When i saw him i was like .... WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT? Sebab sebelum ni i tak pernah pun terfikir yang dia ni handsome tapi setelah melihat KJ in real life, memang lah dia ni Brad Pitt Malaysia. Ha ha. Gila handsome.

Lepas habis concert, of course mesti ada photography session. Took few pics with friends then balik to the hotel. Went to 21 and Werner's in Changkat BB. Had fun with my friends and Mr. Jay and co.

In short, i had a greaaaaaaat weekend. Thanks to my mom, sister and friends.

A Good Day.

Everyone who is close to me knows that i have a serious case of allergies, since 10 years ago. Few nights ago, i was so bored i sengajalah google about the long term side effects of Zyrtec (the one and only allergy med that works on me), and i was shocked. Some of the side effects i dah pun ada such as insomnia, weight gain problem, moodswings, dry mouth and dry skin. No wonder. And i've been taking this pills for so long and lately since its not working so well (maybe i dah immune to it kot), i started to take 3 pills at a go. Sometimes im scared i might ODed for taking to much and mixing my pills.

So yesterday my mom took me to Island Hospital because one of my cousins dah okay after getting her treatment from the skin doctor there. I got there first because mom had things to do so she came 10 mins after i registered myself. Since i was bored, sebab tunggu my giliran lama sangat, i online lah using my phone, Wifi kat situ free, takkan nak tengok je kan? 

My turn (and mom) sampai, went in for about 20 mins. Doc gave me 4 strips of Aeres (this one tak pernah try lagi), cream, a strip of green pills to take before i sleep and a soap, i think its called Ellgy or something, can't remember. When i was in the elevator, i baru realize that i tertinggal my Gucci handphone pouch. My mom bising lah cause its expensive, almost 1k and plus its leather ... so pretty and so sad that it's now gone. My mom suruh pakai Gucci Feringghi lepas ni. What a cruel cruel world. This is the second time i lost my Gucci handphone pouch. First time, the one Awy bought from HK. That one is much prettier than yang recently hilang ni. Maybe takda jodoh kot nak pakai.

After seeing the doc, we went to the petshop. I bought food for my babies and i also bought tiny outfits for them. Ha ha. So cute tapi what a waste they couldn't fit into it cause its a much bigger than them. Too bad. If not they'll look so cute in the tiny colourful dresses! After petshop went to Cold Storage for groceries, and alhamdulillah i found the caramel syrup that Ezar's mom wanted. Can't wait to see what she's going to do with it because his mom is a really great cook!

On our way back, mom and i discussed about cars. Hopefully, insyaallah i can get one when im done with my driver's license. This is the 5th time im taking it. Note to self: stop procrastinating goddamn it Melissa! My boyfriend pun dah pening everytime when i cakap about my license. Haihh. Then balik, i fell asleep because i was so tired. Tak cukup tidur and all, plus i woke up early. Woke up around 8ish then mandi and siap siap because my boyfriend's coming to pick me up for dinner. I was so damn hungry and i wanted really heavy food and he suggested Hameediyah (his favourite and my late dad's too). At first i was like tak nak lah because i don't really like the place. Because you see, im a nasi campur type of person. But in food department, i somehow always give in to Ezar. But, masyaAllah. Couldn't believe myself this time i wallop till licin. I find it really weird because i've been here many many times (since i was a kid) and never once i enjoyed eating here but this time it was different. The food was reaal good. And now im craving for it! Can't wait for Saturday. Im going back again. Macamana lah tak gemok kan?

After Hameediyah, Ezar wanted ice creams and he suggested Baskin Robbins. I was like tak nak lah sebab memang after Hameediyah, every single time, lepas makan jadi mengantuk and lazy like a goddamn fat cow. Thats why i don't like eating there!

So Ezar settled with this pralines ice cream at BR and i had this cake-something ice cream and masyaAllah it was so good! It had shortcake in it and pretty much tasted like a cake ice cream, hence the name.

I got home a very happy young lady many thanks to my darling boyfriend and my awesome mother. I should start packing for my trip to KL trip tomorrow. For Babyface! And hopefully after that i can get my Indomee at Bistari, double shot only mind you. Such a fatso! But i am happy fatso so its all good i guess.

Happy Times

Last Saturday was Zara's (my boyfriend's little niece) first birthday. And as usual if there's a party, i would be the most excited person. Its like tasting creme brulee for the first time. Ahhh ... Because i love planning events. So i offered to order cupcakes for her as a gift. Tapi dugaan demi dugaan yang datang. Because supposedly the mother nak buat the birthday this coming Saturday, on the 6th of March because Zara's actually birth date is on the 2nd of March. But because one of my boyfriend's sister couldn't attend next week so the birthday was fast-forwarded to last Saturday and i was given a 4-3 days notice. Hell i was panic. Because which baker would want to take a last minute order right?

So i started my search for cupcakes bakers in Penang. Found a few, tapi most of wasn't available on that date. Then a friend suggested me to try out this baker from mainland. I was happy because she accepted my order eventhough it was very last minute. But thankfully i also ordered a box from another baker as a back-up. And boy, i was glad i did that because the lady baker from mainland only informed me on Thursday night that she had to 'balik kampung' on Saturday morning! So i continued with my order with Alvin, from Cupcakes Passion. Totally recommended all of my readers to order from them because their cupcakes bukan saja sedap (mine was choc moist cupcakes), tak muak eventhough you eat a lot and the fresh cream icing aren't sweet like some other cupcakes. I was very satisfied and thankful to Alvin for taking up my last minute order and for entertaining my endless questions.

So here's the photos:

So pretty, tasty and colourful! Happy birthday baby Zara!

Okay, enough about the little girl's birthday. On to four more celebrations. Recently, three of my friends got married and another one got engaged. They all looked bride-licious and so gorgeous in their wedding attire.

This is the girl who got engaged. Without makeup she is already beautiful because her face always has this certain glow. And im jealous of that. Ye lah i kena tempek Benefit Dandelion baru nak nampak macam tu. But not her, cause hers memang natural. Mak jealous you!

And here's is three of my friends who got married.

This is Wani. Her solemnization was on Valentine's Day and her reception will be on the 1st of May. Tried finding her photo with her mother during this but there's none. Her mother is a beautiful lady and you won't believe thats her mother because they look more like sisters. Well as they say, like mother like daughter. If the mother is pretty, of course daughter also pretty.

And this is Ita. Her wedding was on 20th of Feb. She's of Pakistani heritage. The interesting thing about her wedding is, because she's of Pakistani heritage, their culture does not accept 'wang hantaran' or known as dowry money but they acceot gold as replacement. And so this lucky bride got RM21,000 worth of gold from her husband! Phewww ...

She wears Pakistani/Punjabi attire for most of her reception as you can see on the photo above. Feels as if im looking at Abishek Bachan and Aishawarya Rai pulak. 

And last but not least, one of my old friend, Sal. Her wedding reception was on Valentine's Day too, same as Wani. Kenangan yang tak dapat dilupakan is when me and my friends semua sibuk naik ke atas stage untuk bergambar di pelamin with the newlyweds. Dan sebab spotlight yang sangat terang, her husband decided untuk tutup the spotlight for awhile with the small pillow yang digunakan untuk meletak tangan sewaktu merenjis. Lebih kurang 10 minutes jugak lah kami mengedik snap pics atas tu. Then suddenly one of my friends terbau asap as if ada benda yang terbakar. Tengok tengok pillow tu dah half hancur on one side. Nasib baik we were fast. If not mungkin satu pelamin tu terbakar. Thank God that didn't happen. Ha ha.

Congratulations to Aja, Wani, Ita and Sal. I wish you girls all the best in this new chapter of life. May you love and hold each other in the worst of times with trust, faith and belief. May God grant you girls a happy married life! Amin.
