we're back !

I'm back ! Alhamdulillah.
Well, I've been back for two days already.
I'm still in one piece ! Or in two three pieces extra, since they fed us SIX times a day everyday.
The whole induction course was quite a relaxed one. We did not have to wake up at wee hours of the morning or go through torturous physical and mental exercises. In fact, we had zero exercise. Haha.
I would say the course was a test of how good we were at refraining ourselves from falling asleep during the non stop talks and lectures. I succeeded pretty well though there were times I had to shove my mouth with mint every 5 minutes and slap myself to keep me awake.
It reminded me a lot of how it was in class during degree. Hehe. Furthermore, I was sitting next to the same person who sat next to me for four years, Zana !

I learnt quite a bit from those four days, about ethics, financial management, circulars and budaya korporat. There was this one talk that I found really inspiring where the speaker reminded us on and on about our purpose in work and life.
He reminded us about how important it is to be sincere and do things for the sake of Allah. Then, InshaAllah, He will pull you through everything and anything.
It's all in the niat, people. :)

It was such a blessing that I had hubby bubbly as my roomie. :D
We heard that married couples were not encouraged to stay in the same room throughout the course, but during check-in at Felda Residence, Trolak, the receptionist was kind enough to let us have a room to ourselves. :)
The room was not too bad. We did not enjoy the food though.

I was super happy to get to meet old friends from high school, UiTM and my previous workplace. :D




Made new pharmacists and dentists friends as well. :D
There were no doctors this time around.

Mr Sunshine and I will be driving back to Batu Pahat this evening, we're having our reception for his side this Sunday. :)
Jadi pengantin baru lagi. Hee. :p
Hoping to see you all there ! :)

Gotta go get ready for work now, bye !

induction course in sungkai.

Mr Sunshine and I (and almost all of the PRPs from our batch) just got to know yesterday that we're gonna have to go for a four day induction course tomorrow.
Ours will be at Felda Residence Trolak, Sungkai, Perak.
And no, I do not know where that is.
I do not know whether I should be happy about the whole thing.
It's good that the hubby will be there with me even though we're gonna be placed in separate rooms for sure. It's good to get the course over and done with so that we get our confirmation in service as soon as possible.
But I am really, really, really not in the mood to socialize right now. Blame it on the hormones.
I know there will be people we already know going to be there too.
I guess it'll be alright eh ?
*crosses fingers*

Ok lah, I'm gonna go cuddle with my hubby bubbly. Haha.
Goodnight !

i need my own cheerleader.

I am very disappointed with myself.
The last time I exercised and broke a sweat was two days before my wedding, which was ALMOST TWO WEEKS AGO.
I wake up every morning telling myself that I will and must do so, but by the time I get back from work I'm either worn out or sleepy.
I am not planning to lose more weight (though I wouldn't mind dropping a few more kilos), I just want to stay toned.
This is starting to get depressing.

Mr Sunshine just left, he has some work to do tonight.
I hope he does not stay out too late. :(
We managed to have dinner at home together first though.

I still have not gotten used to addressing him as my husband/hubby/suami. Hee.

I was on medical leave today. I would like to jump straight to the reason I was given the leave but I think I'd let you all in on the series of events that led to me being in pain.

Hubby bubbly (haha) and I went shopping for tudungs on Saturday.
Yes, as seen here, I have started covering my aurat after tying the knot. Since then, I have been using the old tudungs/shawls that I already own.
That's alright because they go perfectly with my dresses and tops, but I do not own any that would go with any of my baju kurungs for work. And I was going back to work on Sunday (yesterday !).
This intention of mine to cover up was not a hasty one, I have been wanting to do so for almost a year now. But I did not want to rush into it and wanted to make sure that my heart was really into it, because I do not want it to be an ephemeral change. I am trying, slowly, InshaAllah.
I am still my old self, a better me, hopefully, InshaAllah.
Despite it not being a rushed decision, I did not have time to go tudung hunting all this while because I was too preoccupied with other things (read: my wedding !). Which explains the last minute shopping lah.
Bought a few plain and neutral coloured ones which I hope would match with my baju kurungs.

The highlight of that Saturday was definitely lunch time, where Mr Sunshine took me to my favourite place. McDonald's lah, where else ! Hehe.
I had the Double Chicken Prosperity Burger set. The large set.
Sorry, I am a glutton when it comes to McD's. :D
Mr Sunshine had the chicken porridge. Tak mencabar langsung. *yawns*

Mr Sunshine and I had our first home cooked meal that night. Nothing much, just spicy (a bit too spicy !) fried rice with fried eggs. :p
We do not have a stove yet but I used the multipurpose cooker which was given to us as a wedding gift (I really really can't remember from who, sorry, but thank you so much !). It was my first time cooking in the cooker, and I had trouble getting the eggs I fried to be round in shape. Sobs. :p

Mr Sunshine tambah empat kali tau. I'm thinking I did alright. :p

So that was Saturday.
Yesterday morning, after Mr Sunshine headed off to work, I started getting this terrible pain in my tummy.
I was having a gastric attack ! The pain worsened by the minute. I took 6 tablets of antacids at home but they did not work.
I went to work and took some more antacids, but the pain did not go away. In fact it was getting worse.

I held myself together, I told myself I am not gonna let the pain control me because there were only two of us at work yesterday and I could not leave my colleague alone.
But the pain was unbearable, even after 8  Magnesium Trisilicate tablets, one tablespoon of Magnesium Trisilicate mixture and 1 Ranitidine tablet, I was still crunching in pain.
I was as pale as a dead person.
Sakit sangat. :'(
One of the senior pharmacy assistant rushed me to the Emergency Department where I was injected with an analgesic, Diclofenac Sodium and placed on IV Sodium Chloride drip with IV Ranitidine. :(

So yes, that's how I got my medical leave.
Still don't get it ?

Okay, bye.


langkawi !

Oh hi.
Have you heard ?

I am officially Mrs Sunshine ! 
I've been married for 6 blissful days now. Alhamdulillah.
Thank you for all the well wishes.
Thank you for all the gifts and contributions.
I apologize as I know I did not get to meet and greet every single one of you but do believe me, I truly appreciate your presence !

We just got back from our honeymoon in Langkawi yesterday evening. :)
And now we're back in Terengganu. Sobs. Time sure flies when you're having a great time.
We did just a bit of unpacking to get an idea of what else we need for this house.
Mr Sunshine is out for Friday prayers and I am supposed to get ready, as we're heading out to shop for necessities. :)

But I'm still sleeeeeeeeepyyyyyy lah.

chocolate chip macadamia nuts.

Hi all.
How is the first day of the new year treating you ?

I had to work today. My day did not start really well, I had to handle the Methadone Clinic this morning and I was in a bit of a mess. First, I left the name list of the clients back at the pharmacy and had to walk back to get it, then I spilled some of the Methadone syrup on the table resulting in quite a bit of a shortage. :(

What's life without a few bumps eh ?

After work, I had a New Year's lunch with two of my colleagues at the KFC here
Then I was back home, worked out a little, took a nap.
And here I am, sipping my Peach Passion flavoured yogurt drink while watching MTV.

Nope, I was not out celebrating last night. I think I've gotten a bit too old for all that. Haha.
I got a bit emotional when I came to realize that I was all alone on New Year's eve and it was the first time that I'm this far away from my family and friends. :(
But I heard that there were fireworks in town ! Next year, maybe ? :)

Mr Sunshine and I met each other for dinner last night and told ourselves that we're gonna try not to meet each other until THE day. Actually, I told him that. :p
Baru rinduuuuu. Hehe.
Last night I found out that he has never eaten Famous Amos cookies ! How can like that ??!?
After a few seconds of staring at him and asking him repeatedly, "Are you serious, awak ??", I bought him 100grams of Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut cookies.
"Sedap !"  he said. :D
I felt so proud. :p

Ok, I've got some laundry to do, bye !


happy new year !


Here's to a better year for all of us, InshaAllah. :)

Be happy, but stay safe ok. :)
