old boys and old friends.

Hello all !
Updates, as promised.  

As if anyone really reads my blog, haha.

Two weeks ago, Mr. Sunshine brought Khayla and I to Ipoh, again. This time around it was for his former school, Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman's (STAR) Old Boys Weekend. We took leave on Friday and checked in at Impiana Hotel, Ipoh that afternoon. Khayla and I spent most of our time in the room while Mr. Sunshine met up with his ex-schoolmates.

Khayla and Ayah at STAR, Ipoh on the evening we arrived. Mr. Sunshine took us on a tour of his school. I had goosebumps, as though it was my former school !


Khayla was pretty excited throughout the whole trip, polishing her walking skills and exploring every nook and cranny in the hotel room.

"Ayah is leaving us in the room ? No biggie, I'll just lie down and watch telly !"
"...or maybe lie down and check out what I can order from the room service menu !"

Trying to call room service ? Hehe.

I guess she found her happy place. Hehe.
Told ya she enjoyed herself !

Immediately after we reached home on Sunday evening (16/9/2012), we freshened up and headed to Gan & Wei Ting's wedding. Lene was supposed to come along, but she found a date at the very last minute and met us there instead. :)

It was such a beautiful night ! I got to meet my beautiful friends (and probably the only people apart from my family who know how to pronounce my name correctly, haha tetiba) and celebrate the lovely couple. I had tears in my eyes when I saw the bride & groom walking hand in hand. This is the guy I've known since I was 14 ! I know our friendship has changed over the years and we're not as close as we were before, but I was truly happy for him ! *nangis*

CONGRATULATIONS MR. & MRS GAN !! :))

The ever so beautiful Felicia and I. Even Khayla was enamoured by her.

L-R: Khayla, Me, Judith, Felicia, Marlene & Jaclyn. :)

Group photo ! See, Khayla is still trying to peek at Felicia ! Hehehe.

Ayah, who had to tend to Khayla when she started to get sleepy and cranky.
Looking forward to get together with all of them soon, since I'm back in Gombak already.

I had to go for a 4 days-3 nights induction course at UiTM's Training Centre, Kampung Gajah, Perak from last Friday to Monday.
I was fortunate that I had already attended an induction when I was working with the Ministry of Health, so I only had to attend 4 out of the 14 days of induction. Alhamdulillah.
I was very impressed by the rooms they provided for us for the course. Almost hotel-like, with two twin beds, air condition, water heater and we even have to insert our keycard for power. Hehe. It was a comfortable stay, plus I had an awesome roomie so all in all it was good.
I sure hope I aced the exam ! Ameen.

They even provided us with towels, shampoos & shower gels. :)






Mr. Sunshine and I will be moving out from Gombak to Shah Alam soon. We found a 2-storey house to rent for the time being. Why move out ? Well, it's an effort to save energy, time, and money. :)
We went to see the house two nights ago and it was okayyy lah. It isn't my dream house, but I can live in it. I think. Haha.

Although Syawal has ended, I'm gonna leave you people with two snapshots of my colleagues and I during our office's Raya celebration.

With my boss (in purple) and the pharmacy assistants. :)

Comel tak kami ? Haha.
 Here's to a smashing weekend, bye !

xoxo
