Currently feeling: Melancholic
Currently listening to: Nothing

Here's how I spent my Merdeka eve night.
The family and I left home after Maghrib, to Aunty Maziey's place.
Reached there around 8 p.m. and the cousins were outside setting up the barbeque grill. After one round of hellos, salams, hugs and kisses to everyone present, Marc, Marlene and I joined the cousins outside.

Them lighting up the grill.

I helped too. I mean, we. It was good exercise OK. I was sweating profusely. Luckily there were no food on the grill yet. As you can see we were all hyped up already.

The barbequeing has started !

Oh yummy !

While we were busy outside, the people inside were also busy, gossiping.

There were more food inside waiting for us.

Yes, that's me in the background with my bowl of curry noodles.

I helped to fan the meat for a bit. Stopped when I started to sweat. Ergh.

So I decided to snap pictures instead.





And act like a monkey.

And some sort of a fish.

I know, I'm speechless too.

We had a few rounds of makan makan after all the grilling was done. Boy, was I stuffed !

Had a round of teka teki at the dining table.

And we continued to snap photos.

Alice !

Before we knew it, midnight had arrived and we were all screaming "Merdeka !!". OK, so we did not. Everyone was so tired from all the eating I guess.
Nevertheless, all of us had a blast.
It's sad Faiz wasn't around to join us. He was at some PLKN camp.
Faira's going back to Ukraine next Thursday.

Salam Ramadhan to everyone.
Happy fasting !

In the spirit of Merdeka, I shall leave you people with these lovely pictures from Annisa's Super Camera.

urine analysis.

Currently feeling: Okay
Currently listening to: I Believe - Blessid Union Of Souls

I was at HKL yesterday morning for my medical checkup.
It took me a good ten minutes to fill in all of the forms they provided.
They measured my height and weight was measured and to my surprise, I was two centimetres taller than I've always thought I was. But then again the reading could have been inaccurate.
Then my eyes were tested. The usual close-one-eye-and-read-the-alphabets routine. I'm grateful my eyes are still working perfectly.
Then I was told to fill two containers half full with my urine. I was pretty worried as I was fasting and I didn't know whether I was gonna have enough urine to fill them up. Zana even reminded to bring a bottle of water, just in case.
It turned out I had more urine in me that I thought. I filled both containers. Full !
And I still had some more if they wanted me to fill a third one.
OK sorry, I am done disgusting you with tales of my urine.
After that Daddy and I had to walk to the main building to pass my urine sample to the lab and get my X-Ray done.
I am told to come back on the 10th to get my results and the rest of my checkup done.
Oh, I had to go to my dentist to get him to stamp the teeth checkup section of the medical checkup form.
Have I ever told you guys I loved my dentist ?
He is like the best dentist ever OK. Sangat cool !

I do not need to fast anymore. I am done with all my ganti-ing.

Annisa and I were at Putrajaya to watch the Malaysian International Fireworks Competition last night.
The admission was free because this year's show wasn't a competition.
The show started a few minutes after 10 p.m. and we witnessed half an hour of an insanely beautiful (read: orgasmic) fireworks show. I tried snapping photos with my camera but they did not turn out very nice. Not nice at all, actually.
I recorded a video instead. However, Annisa managed to get wonderful snapshots with her Super Camera (yes that's what I'm calling it, who cares if it's an SLR ke DSLR ke). The both of us were sweating throughout the whole thirty minutes and my hands were sore from holding my camera up for so long, I can't imagine how Annisa felt holding her huge camera. I can't wait to get the photos from her camera.

Happy Merdeka, everyone !

mati pecah.

Currently feeling: Frustrated
Currently listening to: Black Hole -Aqualung

Yesterday I managed to get a Commissioner for Oaths at Wisma Central to sign my statutory declaration form for no charge at all.
He said that since I'm just starting to work, it was on him.
Nice, huh ?
So I was feeling all gleefully and lucky and was about to brag about it to Mr. Sunshine when he told me that he got his done for free too.
*straight face*

Lene and I watched The Dark Knight while waiting for buka yesterday.
It was her first time watching it and the second for me.
I broke my fast in the cinema with water and my usual daily tablets.
We had Burger King after that.

I just came to know that we (my classmates and I) might only be reporting for duty after Raya.
That's such a HUGE disappointment for me.
I have been a stay-at-home pharmacist for a month now and probably would continue to be one for another whole month (or more).
This whole thing sucks big time OK.
My brain cells are obviously half dead already from all the sleeping and nonsense I've been doing/reading online.
And not to mention that I am dead broke.
Siapa nak ajak saya keluar sila belanja saya, okay ? Thanks.

But next month is Ramadhan already, so I guess I should try focusing on other things to get my mind off this stupid mess.
Like praying and cooking.
I guess.

Who I am trying to kid ?


Have a nice day, everyone.
*fake smile*

always hormonal.

Currently feeling: Flabby
Currently listening to: Sand In My Shoes - Dido

It's Mummy's birthday today.
Happy birthday Mummy. You'd be 58 if you were still around.
Tomorrow would mark 2 years since you've been gone. Why hasn't time healed anything ?
I want you to know that I miss you to death.
There are times I still hear your laughs and can still see your face around.
I miss you.
I miss you !
Oh, I miss you so terribly.

Well, hello dear blog of mine,
I apologize for abandoning you for the past week or so.
It's just that things have been just a little crazy lately.
But I am back, feeling stuffed as I had 7 pieces for drummets for buka (yeah, I still haven't finished ganti-ing my puasa) and am ready to rant about whatever that had been going on.

That paragraph was really unnecessary, wasn't it ?

Okay, I started off last week (Monday) by getting my stitches removed.
Initially I was really anxious on whether I was gonna bleed or be in severe pain or if the swelling's gonna get worse, but it turned out the whole process took less than a minute and it was painless.
As at today, I still feel uncomfortable once in awhile as the wound is still healing but it's bearable !
Right after my dentist appointment, Lene and I took the LRT to The Curve and there was where we met Baby and her Mr. A for the Zombie Apocalypse a coffee and gossip session.
We had real fun and this time we didn't forget to snap piccies !

Just in case you people didn't know, Baby was one of the few friends I made in Form I while I was (briefly) in Kuala Selangor Science School. So she has witnessed me at my worst. Hint: Faint spells and incessant crying episodes. Malunya ! We met again in UiTM. Small world eh ?
Oh, and her dad and Daddy know each other.
A few more pictures from the night.

Cheryl had her birthday/graduation party last Friday night at The National Press Club. There was buffet dinner and and I think I might have overdosed on the Coke refills. There was karaoke too.

Happy Birthday and Congratulations again, babe !

The happy couple.

Bryan drove us home that night and we had a series of photo snapped in the car.
This is my favourite.

The Pretend to Laugh Pose. We're pretty good aren't we ? Haha.

Woke up last Saturday with Daddy at my door holding a huge white envelope saying, "The letter is here !".
I jumped straight out of bed and took it from him and ripped it open.
It was the offer letter from SPA. Finally ! Alhamdulillah.
The letter came with a few forms I needed to fill in, including one that needs a Commissioner for Oaths' signature too. There's also a need for me to go for a medical check up which (I just found out) can only be done in a governmental hospital or clinic. I initially thought of going to the same private clinic I went to before my UiTM admission. Sigh.
Okay so the letter had all that, but not the date of when I have to report for duty or the whereabouts of my placement.
That I'll know in another letter, which will be from KKM.
Oh sigh, all this waiting is really sucks.
It can't be healthy to be all anxious 24 hours a day, right ?
It's affecting my mood and my energy level.
Okay maybe my energy level is just being attacked by the lazy bug.

I am seriously sangat lazy lah nowadays okay.
I sit at home and do nothing.
Haven't been working out for a few days now.
I do take evening walks with the sister but somehow I don't think that's barely enough the intensity to get my heart pumping hard.
I hate the fact that you can lose muscle mass so quickly !
Oh sigh.

Mr. Sunshine was in town since last week, staying at his best friend's place in Seri Kembangan.
Was out with him yesterday (and a few days last week - bliss).

On our date yesterday, I experimented with a new hairband I bought a few weeks ago. I'm used to wearing hairbands with my fringe sticking out (?) but yesterday I decided to sweep all of my hair back.
I didn't like the end result.

How many foreheads do I have lah ? Eiii.

Obviously, I had it taken off by the middle of the day. I walked around with flat hair but I suppose flat hair is better than multiple alien-like foreheads, right ?
We watched Penelope. I enjoyed it.
I had Nando's for buka last night and it was absolutely heavenly to be able to chew and chomp on chicken. Yummeh ! Hee.

Chew chew chomp chomp !

Me: Awak ! Tunggulah kejap, saya tak habis makan lagi ni.
Him: (Snaps photo)
Me: Ergggh. Bak sini tengokk ! (Grabs camera)
Him: *straight face*
Me: Haha muka awak tak ada, padan muka !

A happy chicken lover and her boyfriend who still can't seem to get his entire face in the picture.

There has been slight tension between us for the past few days because he was superbly busy with a couple of things he had to settle here, and I felt, well, neglected. Or in other words, mengada.
Biarlah aku nak mengada dengan boyfriend aku kan. Dia suka pujuk. Yay ! Hee.
But he's back in his hometown right now. Sobs.

Oh, dear boyfriend ku, saya support awak !

I have been really hormonal this past month. What am I talking about ? I am always hormonal.
But my menses were a week early.
My face is starting to look like a pizza with extra pepperoni and cheese.
And I have been wasting way too much of my tears.

A friend came up with something really unexpected recently and it kinda hurt my feelings.
Oh well, people change.
But don't you think your reason was a pretty superficial one ?

I loved Wall E.
