Dread to great.


Salam,


*mood nak blog in Bahasa*

Khamis lepas, pergi Kursus BTN (Biro Tatanegara) dekat Ulu Sepri, Rembau Negeri Sembilan. Pergghh sebelum pergi tu sumpah malas gila, dah la kena beli baju sekolah putih tak pasal-pasal. Cari merata-Carrefour, Parkson, Mydin semua takde. Pelik gak, bile bukan musim masuk sekolah, diorang tak jual, habis tu kalau tengah-tengah tahun baju sume da koyak rabak, parents nak beli kat mane?? Nasib la jumpa satu kedai kat Precinct 15 jual baju sekolah, tu pon RM28.90 sehelai. Kayap beli 3 helai, untuk pakai 5 hari je. Anak sapa tak cukup baju meh sini nak jual half price. Nasib skirt hitam ada cukup 3 helai tak payah beli.

So berlepas la ke US pagi Khamis. Dalam hati, Tuhan je yang tahu. Biasalah, kaki complain huhu. Mula-mula dalam surat tulis 'Penggunaan telefon bimbit adalah dilarang'. Dah redha dah. Sekali masa first day, jurulatih cakap phone bole je gune, tapi bukan time ceramah. Yelah, yang datang tu mak mak bapak bapak orang, sure la nak guna phone tanya khabar anak kat rumah. Dah seronok boleh guna phone, sekali jurulatih cakap Maxis memang takde lain langsung. Uwaaaa pasrah. Celcom je yang ade, tu pun sebab dulu ade Kursus Perdana buat kt US, CEO Celcom join kursus tu. Sekali dia tengok Celcom takde line, habis kursus terus naik menara Celcom kat situ. Good job Mr. CEO. Bertindak pantas! 

Jadi, bermulalah kembara seorang budak sekolah 'wannabe' tanpa komunikasi dengan dunia luar selama 5 hari.

OK malas nak cerita panjang-panjang pasal BTN. Ringkasannya, BTN kali ni (last time pergi time 2007, sebelum fly ke US), memang lenient gila. Boleh kata 60% je ikut jadual asal. Patut ada senaman pagi petang, ade la 3 kali je kot daripada patutnya 8 kali tu. Aktiviti utama ialah MAKAN. 6 meals per day, memang menggemukkan. Ceramah 2 jam, makan. Sambung ceramah, pastu makan balik. Tapi biasalah kan, nama pun sleepyhead, selalu gak la terlelap time ceramah. Even masa discussion dalam kumpulan kecil pun, boleh tersengguk. Sah-sah fasi tu nampak, nasib lulus gak. Alhamdulillah.

Yang seronok, dapat tengok kerenah dan telatah orang-orang yang lebih senior pergi kursus. Dulu masa 2007, pergi dgn budak-budak nak sambung degree, so perangai lebih kurang sama. Ini ada yang dah jadi medical doctor, nak sambung buat sub-specialist dalam oncology la, pediatrics la. Mostly semua kat situ lecturers dari local unis, nak sambung Master or PhD. So umur dalam lingkungan 30s-40s la. Geli hati gak tengok perangai diorang. Dah ada anak berderet pun tapi bila pergi kursus perangai revert jadi macam budak-budak sekolah balik. Seronok sebab dapat buat networking; yelah diorang tu semua somebody in their own fields, so dapat la input sikit-sikit pasal different fields. And in the future kalau perlu bantuan pape, dah ade orang nak contact. Tapi what amazed me was that bila tanya akak-akak ni nak sambung buat ape, mostly cakap Engineering. Akak-akak ye, bukan abang-abang. Aku je kot yang jakun tengok banyak engineers perempuan. Macam kagum pun ada, aku rasa 'engineering' tu satu benda yang amat complex untuk belajar and rasa lelaki je yang is built for this job, tapi still ada ramai perempuan dalam bidang ni. Flower power hoyeah!

Pictures time!! *Gambar tak banyak, sebab malas bawak kamera sendiri. Ni pun harap orang tag huhu*

Group 3 :)

Makan dalam group okay. Baca doa sama-sama.
 Pastu kena basuh tray and cawan sendiri. LOL

Last night dekat BTN. Ada pertandingan lagu patriotik. 
Muka cuak tak hafal lirik hehe

Bukti tak hafal lirik - bawak lirik naik pentas. Kat atas tu dah cuak sgt, lirik pun tak ingt, nak tengok pn kelam kabut, last nye main bantai je. Oh, kena nyanyi lagu Malaysia Baru. Sumpah tak pernah dengar before this. Rupanya lagu Saloma. Sekali menang no. 3 seh. Padahal mmg beterabur gila (me, at least). Agaknya sebab lagu tu best kot. Fasi cakap lagu tu mmg salu menang.

Oh, masa first day, recognized dua orang ni, rasa macam kenal. Sekali mmg betul, seniors kat Bainun dulu. Main orkestra sama. Abg Elly and Kak Fatim, seniors Form 5 and Form 3 masa Form 1 dulu. What a small world.

Last day, ada Kembara. Masuk hutan, daki bukit, turun bukit, trekking untuk ke Empangan Ulu Sepri. Semput seh, lama tak exercise.
Pic with Kak Fi and Juju. Kak Fi sehati sejiwa, timing pergi tandas selalu je sama. Haha. Pasni ade geng dah kat Penang yahoo!

Inilah empangan terbabit. Kitorang sampai kat atas tu lepas jungle trekking 30 mins camtu, pastu amik-amik gambar kat atas tu, pastu turun. Perrghh turun seyes mencabar lutut. Siap ada yang abseiling.


Apa dapat pergi BTN ni? 

Well, thanks to BTN, now dah ingat balik cerita sejarah kemerdekaan dan sejarah Malaysia. Biasalah, manusia cepat lupa, kena selalu diingatkan. Harapnya negara kita ni aman damailah ye sehingga ke hujungnya. Kepada pengkhianat bangsa dan negara tu, kalau rasa nak hidup macam kat Palestine, Iraq dan Afghanistan, hidup dalam peperangan, darah sana sini, teruskan lah buat what you do best.    Paham, korang jadi macam tu sebab lack of knowledge tentang sejarah kita, selalu dok ikut orang je, nampak rusuhan and demonstrasi tu mcm the 'in' thing, so ikut je la. *tetibe emo* Sedih ok tengok video anak bangsa sendiri merusuh, baling baling batu kat kereta polis, tak hormat Sultan. Pastu bayangkan pulak daripada baling-baling batu tu, terjadi peperangan macam kat Palestine semua tu, menangis beb tengok video tu. Korang hati batu maybe tak rasa la kot. Tah tah seronok sebab tengok muka korang tengah baling batu kat orang dalam video tu. *masih emo* Kesimpulannye, apa yang korang nak buat pun, kalau taknak fikir diri sendiri, fikir la generasi akan datang, anak-anak korang. Kita kat sini sekarang, atas tindak tanduk orang-orang terdahulu yang berjuangkan kemerdekaan. Kita berterima kasih kat diorang. Tapi nanti bila turn anak-anak korang, tah tah korang kena maki, hidup sia-sia gaduh sana gaduh sini, anak-anak korang yang hidup masa akan datang tu hidup merempat. Renung-renungkan dan selamat beramal *emo tamat*

 Ada dua benda yang lekat kat kepala lepas tamat BTN haritu. Ni more kepada life values la.

Orang yang berjaya, mesti cepat adapt dan adjust dengan keadaan sekeliling.
Ni introduction fasi Group 3 mase discussion pertama. En. Hambali cakap mesti ramai yang meronta-ronta *exaggerate* taknak pergi BTN. Tapi nak buat macamana, menangis air mata darah sekali pun (ni ayat Mama suka guna), memang kena pergi BTN kalau nak fly. Jadi daripada kita dok buang masa sedih, monyok, marah, emo pasal kene g BTN, pasal katil tak empuk, makan tak sedap, tandas tak bole flush, just terima hakikat tu dan adjust dengan benda-benda tu. Orang yang buang masa fikirkan apa yang dia tak dapat dan apa yang dia patut dapat, bukanlah seorang yang berjaya.

Orang yang 'happy', adalah orang yang sentiasa berterima kasih, yakni bersyukur.
Apa maksud 'happiness'? Setiap kali lepas habis exam, happy. Kalau dapat A, happy; kalau fail, monyok. Bila masa akan dapat 'ultimate happiness' kalau lepas setiap kali happy, pastu mesti ada benda yang buat kita tak happy. En.Hambali share dengan Group 3, punca kebahagiaan yang sebenar ialah apabila kita sentiasa berterima kasih, bila kita bersyukur pada Allah dalam setiap perkara. Bila kita acknowledge suatu perkara yang berlaku tu, and kita berterima kasih sebab ianya terjadi, nescaya kita akan rasa happy dan contented. 

Jom kita amalkan dua benda ni?

OK sumpah panjang gila dah ni. Let me finish it up with a teka-teki. Sape rajin jawab, drop your answers kat comment.

Teka-teki ni untuk teka bilangan adik-beradik korang. Kira termasuk diri sendiri k.

Jumlah adik-beradik lelaki (ingat kira diri sendiri kalau korang lelaki) + 1 = a
a X 2 = b
b + 1 = c
c X 5 = d
d + Jumlah adik-beradik perempuan (tambah diri sendiri kalau korang perempuan) = e


Beritahu number yang korang dapat untuk 'e', then I can tell how many siblings you have :P

Belated.

Salam,

I'm 23 years and 1 week old today!!! Yay me!!

Oh my, it took me one week to post this entry. I'm getting lazier by the day, not a good sign :(

So anyways, my birthday was exactly one week ago, on June 15. I celebrated my birthday three times this year, before, on the day and after. I'm blessed with loving people around me, who threw me surprises, wished me and all. Thank you everyone! I definitely felt the love!

So on June 11, my auntie had asked all of us to gather at Restoran Nelayan, Titiwangsa because she received a bonus and wanted to treat everyone dinner. It was a normal family dinner, where everyone chatted and updated about each other's lives. Oh, something extra during this family gathering, my other auntie (Acu) and 3 my cousins brought their brand new Samsung Tablet and Ipad 2. So yeah, there were about 20+ of us, busy trying out the new gadgets. Obviously I had no inkling that they were going to threw me a surprise, but then I caught my cousin Hakimi distributing party hats to people behind my back. Oh before that, Acu suddenly came to my table and asked me to play with her tablet. I was like, 'Okay, see what else I can do to your FB (I helped her created FB account earlier)'. And then they started singing and a cake popped out! I was touched, but only a little surprise because I already saw Hakimi with the hats. Spoiler! Haha. Oh the cake, was scrumptious! It was Chocolate Chip Walnut from Secret Recipe. I've never tried it before, I didn't even know it existed until that day. The mastermind was, none other than my lovely CC. Thank you CC! This is the second year my extended family threw me a surprise party. Last year, right after I landed at KLIA from the US, I went straight to our Family Day @ Port Dickson. They surprised me there, as well. Good timing, eh? Tee hee hee.



Second surprise came on the day of birthday. The night before, somebody claimed he forgotten that it was my birthday. I totally believed him given the circumstances we had previously. Sedih jugak lah, of all people I didn't expect him to not remember my birthday *hoi Dila who do you think you are???!!* The next day, one courier guy came to the office. When I saw it was parcel I quickly shrieked 'Ha, XX beli ape ni??' XX is my colleague. Normally we only receive documents for the company, if it is parcel, it must be XX's because she online-shopped a lot. Hihi. But then the courier guy uttered, 'Happy Birthday to you (he was reading the wrapper)' and I was like 'Eehhh it's for me!' And when I saw his name on the consignment form, I just couldn't stop smiling! He was just acting last night! Boy, was he a good actor! I know you are reading this, THANK YOU SO MUCH :) ! 

On Friday, I went to meet up with my keks at KLCC. Initial plan was to meet on Wednesday. I thought I could tell Chili's it's my birthday, mana tahu dapat complimentary meal ke, drink ke, cake ke. Hihi tak maluuuu >.< But then Kekya couldn't make it on Wednesday so we went on Friday instead. Again, I swear I had no inkling that they were going to surprise me. Apparently they were playing all along with me while waiting for everyone to arrive. Kekny picked her phone and said, 'Ha Ita, bla bla bla.. (Ita is Kekny's sister)' Turned out, it wasn't Ita, it was Kekngah! They were planning the last details of the surprise. Kekngah and Kekny pura-pura datang lambat, rupanya they were already in KLCC busy buying cakes and balloons! And Kekya had to distract me, no wonder she never said no whenever I wanted to enter this store lah, that store lah. The best part was when the Chili's crews sang the birthday song. Even bila dengar diorang nyanyi, I didn't think it was for me, until they reached our table with the cake and balloon. Oh you should hear them singing, one guy agaknya penat sangat kot, mungkin dah nyanyi kali ke-44 that day, his voice, kuat gila garau gila macam suara harimau nyanyi birthday song. Haha. I really had fun that night. Thanks girls! Kekna and Kekwa, even though you guys were not physically there, I could feel your spirits. Hihi 





Again, thanks everyone who wished, yang doakan saya panjang umur, dimurahkan rezeki dan lain-lain. Terima kasih banyak-banyak. I had a great birthday this year because of all of you :))

Mundane day.

A sudden thought came while typing out this paperwork.

It's a question of duty, responsibility, passion and sincerity.

One day I feel like I'm the right place, doing the right thing.

Another day, I feel like I'm dead wood, and quitting is the only answer.

One day I love my job, the next day I hate it.

I envy people who easily say they love their jobs.

Where do they find such fondness in what they do daily?

I used to dream of this job, where I can wear nice clothes, carry nice handbags and wear nice shoes to work,  instead of donning the white lab coat (you can wear anything underneath no one will notice), and wearing closed-toe shoes 9-5.

But, look at me now, questioning what I am doing.

.
.
.

I don't even know what I am going to do in the next ten years is of passion and responsibility or just responsibility.

I might be able to quit this one, but I don't think I am able to do that again for the next ten years.

Ya Allah, show me the way, tell me that I'm on the right path, that everything will fall into place after this.

Revisited.


Have you ever felt like ditching the plan you made with your friends, because somewhere along planning that outing, either you messed up, or your friends messed up or somebody else messed up? You felt so lazy to get up, to drive, to shower, to dress up, you simply have no mood whatsoever to go out you started making tonnes of excuses why you couldn't make it? But you went anyway, because you didn't want to upset your friend, because you promised your friend that you would turn up, or simply because you love your friend you didn't want to let him/her down. At the end of the day, it was an awesome outing, you had so much fun, you forgot that you almost missed it because of your stupid mood swings.


Fuuuuhhhh...that's a long introduction. You get what I mean, kan?


I had my share last weekend.

I will spare you from all the drama. Long story short, everybody messed up. Most important thing is, despite all the dramas, I managed to go on with the plan, and I had a great time :)

I volunteered for JBM 3, and on Sunday we brought the kids to Petrosains. Oh memories! I used to volunteer there for 3 months last year. I was supposed to help out on Saturday as well, but I had this family gathering in the evening, so I didn't want to rush for it, so I passed on volunteering for that day (I got my surprise party at the gathering!! Will post about it later).


I spent the day mostly with Tira actually, seemed like I volunteered for her, not JBM, haha. I met some of my Petrosains colleagues and good thing they still remember me, even though I was there for just a short while :))) Oh Tira and I me our long lost mutual friend, Pean. She's volunteering there as well, before she flies of to UK for her clinical years. Fate works in some weird ways sometimes. I knew Pean quite well then, compared to Tira, even though Pean was in a different program, and Tira and I were in the same program (all three of us studied at INTEC for our foundation programs).


After Petrosains visit, we headed to the KLCC park to have our packed lunch. While waiting for the food, guess what we did? Camwhoring! Haha what else, meh? Plus we got a nice view of the towers, we just couldn't miss that, right? I'd love it more if it is at night, with all the lights glittering the towers.



There was a little bit of a twist that day. We were supposed to head over to Shah Alam right after lunch for presentation session. But Tira had bought these Skybridge tickets as a gift to her friend who is going to pursue her PhD in Aussie this year. Too bad, her friend and family couldn't make it that day. We couldn't go on any other day because the tickets were fixed for Sunday, at 2 pm. We could easily bypassed the tickets, because they cost only RM3 each, but then Tira had asked Arif, the Petronas engineer guy to get them for her earlier. So macam sayang pulak nak burn macam tu je. So we decided to us the tickets for ourselves :)) And off we went up up and above! 

Actually it was my second time; my first time was when I had my volunteer training session last year. Tira could have gone with somebody else, but because she loves me so much, I just had to follow her :P It was a brief visit - 7-minutes video screening, 40 secs elevator ride up, 15 minutes visit on the bridge, and 40 secs elevator ride down. Btw, the bridge is at Level 41 (Sorry no photos of the sceneries up there, we did took some but Tira didn't send me those). More or less, plus waiting time, it was just a 30-minutes visit. We managed to drive back to Shah Alam, and made it in time for the kids' presentations. Along the way to Shah Alam, we had a heart-to-heart talk; it was so refreshing. Haven't had such a talk with her for such a long time :) Thanks dear for listening :))






JBM ended at 6. Since the place is close to the Les Copaque office (if you don't know what/who Les Copaque does/is, sila tekup muka dengan selimut sekarang! They are Upin Ipin producer lahh!!), we went to the office and snapped a few pictures. Haha. Actually it was Kak Shu's (Tira's friend from MGI) idea, she loves the botak kids to bits; so we had to tag along since Tira was the only one with camera (I brought mine, tapi malas nak ambil gambar huhu). And later, we had quick bites at Geng's Corner, a restaurant owned by Les Copaque, just across their office. Did a quick post-mortem, and it was Maghrib by then, so off we went.

JBM 3 kids with the organizer and volunteers. Form 4 kids of SMK Seksyen 16, Shah Alam.

As decided during the post-mortem, JBM will take a break for a while, as the organizer, Hamidah needs to revise the modules and plan for better JBM next time. However, she will be available as 'penceramah' for JBM if anyone would want to use her service and expertise.

So back to what I said in the intro..

I dreaded waking up that Sunday morning, no, not because of you Tira, because of what happened to the planning and all, and it's not your fault , don't get me wrong okay? It was more of me battling with my moods and questioning my intentions.

But at the end of the day, I had a lot of fun, laughed a lot, talked a lot and helped a little bit :P But I do hope that the kids did gain something out of the two-day program. Now I can't wait to join KULN NY-NJ Summer Camp in Hulu Langat next month :)

Till then, au revoir!

The girl with A LOT of dreams.

Or more precisely, a lot of ANGAN-ANGAN..(What is angan-angan in English? I asked Erin but she doesn't know sheeesh)

Thinker or executor?

I think I'm the former. I like to let my mind linger, think about all sort of things. But at the end of the day, nothing is done, or shall I say 'not done YET'. In other words, saya seorang yang kuat berangan, tapi tak buat apa-apa pun untuk capai angan-angan tu. 

Jangan gelak okay dengar kisah angan-angan ni. Who knows one day I'll realize one or two, if not all? Berangan, tak salah, asalkan tahu bertempat *pasang lagu Jay Jay* Taktahulah my angan-angan ni bertempat ke tak, you tell me.

1. When I got back to Malaysia last year, I was jobless for quite a while. So I thought maybe I could do some volunteer work. I thought of teaching English to kids at the centre I used to go last time. I even thought of the method of teaching I'd be using, which is through music and lyrics. Personally, I learn a lot from reading and listening to music, and not from the school syllabus. The only time I think I really learn English was when I studied at INTEC. Teaching English using music sounds like fun, no? Past tense, present tense, future tense - boringggggg hahaha.

2. After I joined the first 'Jom Belajar Matematik', my 'berangan' gene started to kick in. I imagined myself being a tuition teacher. I even asked for tips from a friend of mine who is one! I was at the point where I could drive to the bookstore first thing in the morning to get some reference books to study about what I'm going to teach. At first I thought maybe I could start with giving free tuition to my cousins, and the later, seeing how AWESOME of a teacher I am, they would ask their friends to join in and I'd start getting paid for it. Hahaha. That thought kinda got flushed away after a while, but it didn't just stop there. I then thought of doing it in Putrajaya instead, here at my apartment complex, because traveling to KL to teach could be a hassle. A lot of thought was put into this, kan? Hahaha saya suka berfikir jauh :P

3. I fancy creative stuff, but I myself is lacking in that department. Zaman sekolah dulu, I liked to go Jusco and stood in front of these shelves of colored papers and deciding what colors to buy because really I felt like buying them all.


Picture from Google.

And then when I went to the States, I came to know this store called Michaels. That's heaven of artsy stuff in there. They have everything-flowers, cards, frames, party stuff, baking and sewing stuff, decorative items, just name it! The scrapbooking section is to die for! Papers, stickers, scrapbook stuff, pens, ribbons, beads ooh macam-macam lah. You can leave me there the whole day I won't mind. Just remember to pick me up later :P

I got myself a scrapbook kit during my first year; thought of making it like a 'travelogue scrapbook', where I would put all pictures, tickets, memorabilia of the places I visited. It went well....but only for two places I visited in my first year - Chicago and New York City. Let's just say, the interest died off after that. Haha


Inside Michaels store. Picture from Google.






Then, sometime in 2009, I found a blog whose author sells handmade cards. You know what comes next, right? I wanted to be handmade card makers too! Hahaha I've lived with handmade cards since high school. My BFFs are a bunch of creative people, we always exchange handmade cards/notes during birthdays and other events. 


Zaf gave me the card before I left to the States, and Nany gave me one for my 20th birthday.







So last Spring, I was being so rajin and made two birthday cards for dear friends of mine, Sakina and Jiji. Too bad I don't keep pictures of the cards I made. I think they turned out pretty good :P (Self-praise is no praise, eh? Hihi) I still want to make handmade cards though. I just need time..and, a store like Michaels in Malaysia. Do you guys know of any? I know Papier at The Curve, but haven't got a chance to spend time there. I'd like to think that I'm creative, when the reality is, I am NOT! Haha.

Okay okay, I promise this is the last one. Hahaha

4. This is the ultimate angan-angan ever! One that I wish I will fulfill in the future. I want to OPEN A CAFE!! A cute pink and white cafe on the block. My cafe will have cupcakes, pastries, snacks, quick meals, smoothies, coffee (even though I'm not a fan), chocolate drinks and many more! Typical menu of a cafe. I even have a name for it, which I'm not gonna tell. Malu :P 




I am not a good cook, or a baker, NOW, but I promise I will slowly learn and become very good at both and make this dream of mine come true! Pray for me, please? If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. My muse is the DC cupcakes sisters, owner of Georgetown Cupcake, Washington. Love the show! Oh and also Wondermilk Cafe here in Damansara.





All pictures from Google.



There you go! I've just revealed my life secrets right there. The girl with A LOT OF ANGAN-ANGAN. Don't use them against me later, kay? 

Everyone can..

dreaaaammmmeeeee 
dream dream dream

*pasang lagu All I Have to Dream, Everly Brothers* :))))


Thanks for reading my angan-angan. May I know yours? Hihi

Rambling at 2 in the morning.


Fluid. Constantly changing. Visionary. Impatience. Paranoid. Forgetful.

I'm all of the above.

When I desire something, I vision myself in it, doing it, living with it. And I plan for it. If the plan worked, great. If it fell through, then too bad. I don't know where I get this trait from. My parents are not planners. They are more like 'wait-and-see' kinda people. I, on the other hand, want to know what's gonna happen to me in the 5 years or so, in black and white, so to speak. Paranoia is a best friend to my visionary department. I always have the 'what-ifs' questions. To me, there's a lot more that could go wrong, than can go right. 

*

I don't like to sit and wait. Certain things, you just gotta wait for it to happen. But I'm very impatient. When I vision something, I want it to come to fruition almost immediately. I think that's why, in everything I do, I get bored easily. When things are not moving, stagnant, not going I want it to be, I get bored. What happens when I get bored? I move on. I escape. I move to other things. And the cycle continues.

*

I find my brain working in a very peculiar way. When I moved on from something, I kinda erase all memories associated with it. I hardly remember things, once I decided to move on from it. When people ask what happened, why, how, when, I could not give them proper answers, because I just can't remember. I almost thought I had amnesia at one point.

*

Motive of this post? No idea. A sudden thought came when I was about to sleep just now. I think I need to change. I'm a putting things in jeopardy, with all those traits of mine. But then again, maybe I just think too much. Which is another superior trait of mine. Sigh. STOP THINKING TOO MUCH!



kthxbai!

Color crazyyyyy

OMG OMG, I'm so excited.

Chill Dila chill..take deep breathe..In..Out..In..Out

Fuuuhhhhhhhh...

OK now I'm more composed. NOT!!

Blame the mating season, everyone is talking about wedding these few weeks. Me included! But I have been keeping it to myself, or just on Twitter, but I cannot tahan alreadyyyy! This must go out!

I found out an awesome blog 'The Perfect Palette' from my friend's blog, NenaMalek. OMG I fell in love with it the moment I saw the first color palette. Not even after reading the first post. I haven't really read the blog, which is something I would normally do (read cover-to-cover) when I found an awesome blog like this. I just had to blog about it first. Cannot tahan, cannot tahan.

I know I know, I'm not getting married anytime soon, but berangan tak salah, kan? Girls just wanna have fun, haha. Definitely going to be my reference, when the time comes :))

So you brides-to-be, please check it out! Grooms-to-be nak check out boleh jugak, tee hee hee.

Now, who wants to berangan with me? Let's jom!

Pic taken from The Perfect Palette


OK OK now back to work...(Let's see if I can do that muahahaha)

Supir.

 Salam,

Hari ni jadi supir, drive dari Putrajaya ke Seremban. Keluar je Tol Kajang, perghhh jam bumper-to-bumper. Tak bajet plak jam seawal tu, ingatkan paling teruk pun jam kat Nilai. Sekali tengok message board kat highway tu, 'Trafik perlahan dari Bangi ke Seremban. Harap Bersabar'. Fuuhh nasib baik CC aka the pregnant lady aka my sister tahu ikut jalan dalam. Masuk simpang Bangi, patah balik Putrajaya, cari jalan masuk Dengkil, pegi Seremban ikut jalan dalam. Sampai gak la dalam sejam lebih. Kalau ikut PLUS tu mahu 2-3 jam nak sampai Seremban tu. Time tu dah la lapar gila, nasib ada bawak roti telur dalam kereta, sebab tak sempat makan kat rumah. Maka bersuap lah dua makhluk dalam kereta tu sementara nak sampai.

Sampai je Seremban, terus Ayah bawa pegi area Stadium Paroi, makan kat Nasi Arab Damsyik. Actually a friend of mine yang suggest, so pegi la try. Lagipun setiap kali datang Seremban, asyik makan tempat sama je, makan masak lemak cili api, kali ni tukar selera plak.


It's actually a restaurant in a house. Keliling semua banglo, tetibe satu rumah jadi restaurant.

Indoor seating macam ala-ala Mediterranean. Ade outdoor seating jugak.

Chai tea (tea with peppermint leaves) and their signature drink Mango Lassi. Mango Lassi tu mmg sedap la, tapi Chai tea tu kureng sikit. Tak rasa sangat mint nye.

Set Thalasa Ayam+Kambing, for 3 pax. Ada set Wahid for 1 pax and set for 5 and 10 pax. Tak silap ada ayam and kambing je. Sedap! Nasi tu ade rasa ayam, rasa daging and rempah-rempah semua cukup. Oh set for 3 ni harganya RM50. Served in a dulang.

Licin yo! Haha Overall memang sedap. Cuma yang kurang part menu la, tak macam restaurant arab yang lain. Yang ni mmg simple je. Jalan Jalan Cari Makan pun dah sampai sini. Pasni nak try Sahara Tent plak, or Al Rawsha ke. Yang memang pure Arab-style punye. Oh yg ni owned by Malays kalau tak silap, sebab waiter sume Malays. Sahara Tent tu semua macam owned by Arabs.

A- for food.
A+ for ambiance.

For dinner, CC aka the pregnant lady aka my sister mengidam makan sotong kangkung. Ayah being a caring daddy, bawak la dia pegi satisfy her craving. Last nye bukak sotong kangkung je, kerang bakar and tauhu bakar pun masuk list.


Oh oh, something funny happened tonight before dinner (tetibe English pulak dah). Kelam kabut siap tadi, Ayah dah tunggu kat luar. Terhegeh-hegeh nak iron baju (padahal makan kat tempat gelap je pun gigih nak iron baju) sekali terbakar baju. Ok terbakar tu exaggerate. Macam terlekat kesan burnt la kat baju tu. Dah kelam kabut takde baju nak pakai, pegi sarung je baju Mama. Tak penah share baju ng Mama selama 23 tahun hidup okay, melainkan baju kelawar ke maxi ke. Ni baju berjalan pakai baju Mama. Nasib la okay. Keluar je rumah kene gelak ngan CC and Ayah, sebab baju tu besar sikit, and nampak macam makcik. Dah la tudung pun sarung tudung Indon Mama. Adoi lah.


See? See? Makcik much? 
Eh gambar satu lagi takde watermark. Malas pulak dah.

Ok itu sahaja kthxbai!
