Something Different....Hmmm

Thursday, November 29, 2007
It's been like 3 weeks I'm back wearing my glasses and believe it or not, it's quiet suprising how many people doesn't know that I was wearing contact lens all those time. Weird? But true! Considering I'm working with people, some of the regulars looked at me twice just to make sure it is me..hehe! It's quiet funny!

A guy around my age, I don't know his name but he is quiet friendly and last week he came and he stood infront of me for a long time, then when I looked up, he said:

Young Guy: Hey! It's you
Me: (smiling) Of course it'me me. Why? (making dumb face)
YG: Errmm..you look different.
Me: Apa yang lain? (What's the different)
YG: You wearing glasses...
Me: Yea...
YG: I didn't know you wear glasses...
And I just smiled...Work ethics - cannot flirt with the 'client' during office hours..Haha!

He came again this afternoon and again we have this conversation

YG: What? Not wearing any contact lens anymore?
Me: No! Doctor advised me to take a break.
YG: What happened?
Me: Long story short, I got eye infection and allergy
YG: Ahhhh....

This thing happened again few minutes later when an officer from the Ministry whom I'm quiet close with (we were in the same flights to and fro last time BRU-KL-BRU) came.

Officer Fr Ministry: Eh..
Me: Oh! Hi Ji
OFrM: Start bila kau pakai glasses ani?
Me: Batah udh eh
OFrM: Selama ani nda jua kau pakai glasses.
Me: Contact lens la Ji
OFrM: Ahhh...

Haha! One small change in my apperance, everyone noticed! I wonder if anyone noticed my zits just above my upper lips? Hmmm...I think they noticed but it would be impolite to stare so that's why they concentrate mainly on my eyes. Or maybe my eyes is my attraction? Haha..perasan!

My x-bf told me that he likes me better with my glasses coz that's the real me bla bla bla...and a guy who likes me (whom I mentioned before in this blog), also commented that I look cute with glasses..What's up with male and glasses, anyway?

December Coming...

A day to go and it will be December. That's like another 32 more days to the new year 2008! YIKES! 2008?! Part f me looking forward for the new year and some part doesn't! Okay, I admit, I'm looking forward to the new year. I'm hoping to make some changes in my life. I know what I want to change but I just don't want to share it yet! Not yet! Don't worry, I will sure share it sooner or later!

For this December, I will have public holiday duties. My duties is only twice for the December but I'm taking over a colleagues' duty considering that she is celebrating Christmas and her family will fly here for the occassion, so I'm giving her the chance to spend the Christmas with her beloved! That's more like teamwork eh! And I will have more of the KKC meetings. The never ending meeting, I would say. But hopefully we can finish it before the next KKC 'season' and get it over with!

Anyway, new year 2008; I don't have anything planned yet but rumor has it that our department is having a family outting on the new year day. Not sure how true is the rumor but if it's true, then I will be having a BBQ for the new year day. Somewhere in February 2008, we will have our annual gathering and this time, it will be held in Kuala Belait. Do I smell another roadtrip? Yea! I love roadtrips! But I'm not sure I will be going for another annual gathering. For the last 5 years I had been working, I only went once and that was last year! Speaking of work commitment huh! I got so many work commitment that it's kindda hard to keep up with!

I will officially move to the new 'office' starting January 2. More responsibilities, more work! Luckily, my partner is someone I can rely on. At least, it gives me a sense of relief.

Apart from my work life, my specs hunting haven't produced anything just yet! I'm still searching. Gezz! How much searching do I need? Hehe! Well, it's gonna be my 'companion', my 'partner', my 'other half', so I better choose wisely, don't you think? OK! In other word, I'm just plain choosy....PERIOD! No wonder I don't have any boyfriend! HaHaHa! Wherever that comes from....?

The Kingdom

Wednesday, November 28, 2007
I read some comments on the movie, The Kingdom. Some said it contains a lot more actions than the Hitman. So I decided to go and judge the movie for myself. I went to watch The Kingdom yesterday afternoon at The Mall Cineplex.

It's a movie about Americans being killed by suicide bomers in the land of Saudi Arabia. I'm not sure whether they really filmed it in Saudi Arabia but it does look like it - from the bulidings and environments and all. Anyway, FBI Agent Fleury (Jamie Foxx) together with 3 of his team (Jennifer Garner, Chris Cooper and Jason Bateman) went to Saudi Arabia to find and capture a terrorist responsible for a deadly attack on Americans.

It gets hectic and unorganized as well, you know how tight Muslim country is Saudi Arabia. The laws are very strict that it prohibits then from doing their 'job'. However, the agents find themselves strangers in a very strange land until a native police captain takes them under his wing and helps them navigate the deadly streets of Riyadh.


Politics and religions aside, it's a good movie! It filled with actions and the casts are brilliant. The Prince of Saudi (whoever the actor is; he is quiet deliciously goodlooking) But for someone who is sensitive about religion and believes, there is a pro and a con here. The good side is that no matter what the coour of our skins and what are religion and believes are, we help each other for the right cause. The bad side, sure! It targeted mainly on the Muslim; Al-Qaeda, September 11 and all those.

The director is Peter Berg. Some of you might remember him and some of you might not. I even don't remember where I had seen him before. I know he looks familiar but just couldn't place him. I did my serach and guess what, he is the guy from the mid-90's medical TV series - Chicago Hope! I don't know whether any of you remember this TV series but this TV series is quiet the 1st medical TV series that I watched. There was no Grey's Anatomy, House, Medical Investigation, CSI back then but Chicago Hope was a hit! Man! I almost forget all about it. Peter Berg, he sure comes a long way from 1994 and he directed this movie! Awesome!


Is it a lot better than Hitman? My personal view, I like both! I LOVE action movies..PERIOD! But this movie, I have to say, place an impact in my life coz it involved my fellow Muslims. I'm not biased or anything here and I know that what our fellow friends did affected the whole Muslim community in this world....

My Day

Tuesday, November 27, 2007
I was having my off day today and man, don't I just enjoy off days. I woke up a lil' bit late, around 7.45am, had my shower and by 8.30am, I was ready to go to the RIPAS hospital for my eyes followup. Once I arrived in RIPAS, I straight headed for the paying basement parking coz no waste in wating my time to look for free parking. Basically you won't get any. Parking in RIPAS after 7am is almost impossible. So I parked my car (cursed at some irresponsible drivers who just parked their car antam2 and leave not enough space to move), went straight to the registration and I got que no 21.

I thought 21 is not that bad considering it's just 10 minutes to 9am!! But when I look at the electronic numbering system, the number displayed at that time is 7!!!! YIKES! No empry chairs so I was suck standing, watching the Health Awareness programs on TV. The ENS (electronic numbering system) kept on beeping and I kept on looking. But mostly patients by appointment being called first. By 9.30am, my number! Yea! Doctor cleared me of infections but advised me not to wear contact lens everyday as my infection might come back and gave me a prescription for garasone eyedrop and lacrilube. Geez! Better start hunting for new glasses now. The glasses I'm wearing now is 3 years old already! Hmmmm...

Haven't eat any breakfast yet, so me and Bro Muiz (he was tagging along), went to McD. I know! I know! Unhealthy food to start the day but I'm running out of choice and I was hungggrryyy! We were queing up behind these 2 Ah Bengs (that's Chinese men) wearing PINK t-shirts! Rarely I see men wearing PINK t-shirt! I remembered when I was staying in Singapore, there was this hugh news when a Singaporean Idol participant wearing PINK t-shirt for the audition and he had been named Ah Beng eversince. Couldn't remember if he gets in or not! Anyway, infront of those 2 Ah Bengs, there were 3 more couples hence we were the fifth and only one counter opened! Huunnnngggrrryyyy!! Luckily, soon after that, another counter opened (maybe sympathised with my 'deprived-out-of-food-look'). Ate my breakfast and around 11.15am, we out of Gadong. Gotta fetch Bro Faiz from school.

Afternoon, I treated myself to a movie (since there is no one to treat me..hahaha). Of course, I brought my 2 'bodygurads'. We watched The Kingdom. Cool movie! Finished the movie around 4.15pm and went straight home coz I promised my dad to have dinner together. Exhausted! But it's been a great day!

Oh yea, I went to several optical stores but so far, haven't find the one that I like best. It's quiet some times I didn't shop for glasses it makes me forget how stressful it can be! Didn't know shopping for glasses is that stressful. My current one is the one that I made in Singapore. Kindda sayang to replace it considering that this one is using the expensive high index lens which cost me some freaking $450! Hmmm...Back to work tomorrow so InsyaAllah I will continue shopping for glasses this Friday. Sunday, I will be working....

Pejamkan Mata

I found it! I finally found it!! What I meant here is about the poem that I mentioned in the Malaysia's 9 September movie! Btw, it's part of the lyrics of Penjamkan Mata by Ronnie.

Ku pejamkan mata
kau dihadir disisi
ku hulurkan tangan
kau sambut dengan kasih
tenangkanlah hatimu
agar bisa ku senyum
penjamkanlah matamu
jika rindukan wajahku
ku pejamkan mata
kau hadir disisi
bisik mesra darimu
menyemai kasihku
bahagiakan dirimu
agar bisa ku senyum
penjamkanlah matamu
ku pasti disisi
untuk dikau kasih
ku curahkan cinta suci
yang tak mungkin terpadam
akan terus membara
bahagiakan dirimu
agar bisa ku tersenyum
pejamkanlah matamu
jika rindukan wajahku
janjiku kepada
aku pasti disisi

Rough Weather

Although I'm a bit afraid of the deep water, but I always love the sea! It's a feeling that you acquire when you live near the beach for quiet some times. As for me, I spent 14 years of my live stayed by the beach, either the Muara beach or the Serasa beach. I love going to the beach and I love staring out into the endless sea.

This morning, me, my parents and my 2 brothers got nowhere to spend our weekend so rather than just lazying at home, we decided to go to Muara. I miss Muara, to be honest! Mainly because I grew up there and I'm fond of the memories there. It's where I know the meaning of life!

Anyway, we went there, went to Serasa beach - some things had changed! We had a lil' picnic...hehe..mostly unplanned! Then, on our way home, I told my dad I missed Meraggang beach. It is where I used to jog every afternoon, when I didn't go hiking! So my dad made a turn and we went to Meraggang. The waves (for me) is quiet high! The weather looked it's gonna rain so I didn't come down fr the car. I managed to take a picture fr the car though! The weather looked rough and the wave looked 'mean'.


It's almost coming to the end of November. December is just around the corner and the weather is as expected as it is! Where all the months gone?! I feel like I'm left behind....somewhere.....

Geez! It feels that I'm spending all my free times watching movies! I couldn't remember what's the malay movie that I watched before 9 September. I watched Malaysia's 9 September last week with my 2 brothers.

Since then she has kept this hatred towards guys. Her anger is being let out on Kogi (Pierre Andre). Kogi is very much an honest and kind guy. He is seen as someone who is easily a target for Nia to bully. The first time they met was when Nia accidentally entered Kogi's house. Since then many coincidental meetings had happened between them. No matter how many times Kogi is being bullied by Nia, he stills put on a strong front and very much a gentleman most of the time they spend their time together until they eventually fall for each other but this was cut short when Adrian, Nia's ex lover, came back to her.
Without a doubt Nia is still head over heels for Adrian. But her love for him isn't much like it was before. Her mind was always thinking about Kogi . One day Nia decided to fly off to Tokyo with her boyfirend for a year. As she returned from Tokyo her feelings towards Kogi was so overwhelming that she had to search for him but pretty much failed. When she finally found him again a shocking surprise awaits for her. What will be the end of their relationship? Will the two hearts ever be united again in love?"
What's a shocking suprise awaits for her? Well, Kogi loves her by trying to prevent her from leaving Malaysia. Kogi had a cancer (I couldn't remember what cancer). She looks for Kogi but couldn't find him anywhere until she decided to go to an island where she and Kogi were standed a year ago. Kogi was there and they spent the night in each other arms. Kogi died that night! Yup! He died! I nearly cried at this part but another part that make me on the edge of tears is when Nia is about to get married, she ran to Kogi's apartment and found a poem...for her! The poem is so heartbreaking.....
I will try to fnd the poem and when I do, I will post it here....chiow!

Beowulf




Another movie I managed to watch last weekend is Beowulf. I watched it with my bestfriend. I'm not sure whether Beowulf is a myth, legend or true story but I think it's a myth of the Danish.

I don't know how to write the synopsis of this movie coz it's kindda hard to explain the dragon and all etc etc. But what impresses me about this movie is that it's kindda an animation! Yup! At first, I thought it's a real movie with real people, with effects and all but it turned out to be an animation with superb effects!

Don't ask me why they use Angelina Jolie's animation in this movie. Is it because she looks so seducing? Hmmm..maybe! I don't know! Maybe the male know it better than we do!

Hitman



The latest movie played in the cinema. I went to watch it with my colleague, Ummi after we finished our QQC meeting this afternoon. With our baju kurung (for Ummi) and baju fesyen (for me), we went to the Qlap Mall..hehe! We looked weird! Orang lain pakai casual clothes but we went straight from work. Well, What to do? The show is at 7PM and we finished our meeting around 6.30PM.

It is so filled with actions which I LIKE! I LIKE! I just LOVEEE all the action movies with hi-tec guns and all...hehe..I always like bold men! I think they are just so SEXY! Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47 (in this movie), I have to say, is one SEXY lad! Yummy! Ahakz! I watched him with Bruce Willis in Die Hard 4 and sure, he looks good there but here, in Hitman, with no hair..devilishly super-delicious..Haha! Oh yea..the cars just WOW! Audi and Benz mainly used here but hey, with Audi alone, this movie is already my favourite movie - great story, great looking men (well, for Agent 47), great looking cars, what can I ask more? hehe...Gotta buy the DVD once on store...

MUST WATCH for you who like action movies...you won't regret it!

Gossip One, Please!

I'm not the type of person to gossip. I know it's suppose to come with the package but I rarely engage in the game of gossiping. Mainly because I don't care about other people's lives and honestly, it's just a waste of time and adding to my pilling sins aka menambahkan dosa..he3! Besides, I don't like to be gossiped about hence I know how it feel to gossip about others.

But yesterday afternoon, I couldn't help but to get involved or rather stuck in gossiping. I was having a CE (Continuing Education) in RIPAS Hospital yesterday afterwork. After the CE, a male colleague invite me for a cup of coffee. With him and a female colleague (who was with a friend, who happened to be a famous radio dee jay), we ended up sitting in a coffee shop in Qlap.

Who says male don't gossip?! Well, add a male to a group of ladies, he SURE does will gossip! Me, who rarely get involved in work matters after office hours, just couldn't shut my mouth. We gossiped (or as we women termed it as TALK) about a lot of things that we ended up staying there for like 1 and a half hour! YIKES! I only came home around 8pm! Haha! Talked about the power of gossips huh!

But gossip is not always bad, you know. It does help you to keep pace with what's happening. True! Some of the gossips might be untrue, incorrect or whatever you want to call it but some does have truthness in it...

Well,

Kalau nada ribut, nakkan pokok bergoyang....

Stress? Depressed?

Tuesday, November 20, 2007
...or maybe both. I had been sick since last Saturday or rather since last Tuesday. I had an eye infection and on 2 weeks antibiotics treatment and lay off contact lens maybe for a month. Then I had sore throat and it's getting worst last Saturday.


My sinusitis was getting worse and I was having fever last Saturday night. Sunday, I tried to get myself a break and went out and watch a movie. It did relieve some of the pain - physically and emotionally.


Maybe the death of Jojo somehow shut my immune system for a while back then. I do feel sad once in awhile especially when I see KC. But InsyaAllah, time will heal the pain....

Farewell Jojo

Sunday, November 18, 2007
17/11/2007 - It's the day that I lost Jojo. He died caused by infections. He was given 3 shots of injections when I rushed him to the private vet clinic in Gadong late Friday afternoon and being supplied with liquid antibiotics and an eyedrop. I only managed to feed him the antiobiotics twice yesterday and the eyedrop once.

When my mum came home from work that afternoon, he was still alive and tried to move, in a way to greet my mum as he always did but when I came home 10 minutes later, he's gone! What's frustrating, I was not even there to 'acccompany' him for his last breath. But KC was there and he won't even budge from Jojo's body. I somehow can feel KC's pain and saddness.
He is losing the only friend he has....I couldn't even stop crying yesterday that my dad just quickly buried Jojo's body so that I won't be that sad. But I was and I'm still is! I'm losing Jojo. I'm losing something that is so dear to me. I can't stop thinking about him and about KC. Kc will be so lonely. Today, when I fed KC, I cried again coz KC look so lost, so lonely!

Farewell my dear Jojo - May you rest in peace

Jojo - You will always be remembered

Lakaran Kasih

Thursday, November 15, 2007

A novel by Laila Kamilia. Her first novel in my malay novels library list. I'm not sure whether she has any other novels but this is the first one that I came across with.


The main characters - Dzalia and Zuhairee. Both are, in a way, adopted children. Zuhairee, Nizar's son was adopted by Nizar's bestfriend, Zikri and Habibah after the death of his wife.
While Dzalia is a stepdaughter of Nizar. Her mother left her husband, Nidzar when she found that her husband was having an affair. Nizar pitied Dzarina, Dzalia's mother and married her, hence giving Dzalia a father.


As the bestfriends had promised, Nizar with Habibah (after the death of Zikri) made a plan to marry Dzalia and Zuhairee together. Dzalia still couldn't forget her first love - Firwan while Zuhairee afraid to fall in love again after Syikin.


2 days before they got engaged,Dzalia with the help and permision of Zuhairee went to her university reunion. She met with Firwan again after 5 years and infront of every friends, Firwan proposed to Dzalia. And she said yes!


Dzalia went back to her kampong and asked for postpone in hers and Zuhairee's engagement. At this point of story, Dzalia was confused between 2 men - Firwan, her first love and Zuhairee, whom she started to fall in love with. She waited for Zuhairee to say the 'magic' words of love for her to change her mind but it never come.


So Dzalia decided to marry Firwan, even against Nizar's wishes. On her nikah day, she waited for Zuhairee (who had to come when Dzalia asked him for one last time). No words were uttered but Dzalia knew that Zuhairee loves her. But it's too late. She can't afford to humiliate her parents anymore.


A year marriage to Firwan didn't bring Dzalia any happiness. She was constantly being left alone as Firwan 'outstationed'. Truth came out 1 day when Dzalia realized that she is Firwan's second wife. Her used-to-be-bestfriend, Nina (Firwan's girlfriend during school years) is infact Fiwan's first wife with whom they have 2 daughters.


Firwan and Nina passed away, leaving their 2 daughters with Dzalia. Zuhairee, who knows that Dzalia is no one's wife anymore, started to do what he was supposed to do ages ago - fight for the one that he loves!


In the end, Dzalia and Zuhairee were married and somehow, Zuhairee knew that he is Nizar's son and Dzalia knew that she is Nizar's stepdaughter.


Honestly, if you ask me, when I was reading this book, somehow I feel lost! Why? Because the chapter in this novels sometime being alternate between the past and present and that makes me confused. Furthermore, I think this novel is incomplete. Well, there is no explaination on how Firwan and Nina died (except that they involved in a crash) and in the end of this novel, Nizar passed away and only letters to Dzalia and Zuhairee explained little bit of it. No story on how Zuhairee's reaction knowing that he is Nizar's son; on how and why Nizar's passed away. It just ended.


Don't get me wrong. The storyline is interesting and catching and I managed to read it in a workday. But I think it would be more interesting if the writer elaborate more on the details. Then I wouldn't be that confused..but it's okay.


I will sure look forward to read more from Laila Kamilia. I know she will do great.

The Updates!

Sunday, November 11, 2007
It's been a while I didn't properly update my blog and here I am, insyaAllah will try my best to fill in what's been happening in my life lately. Overall, it's been a rough week.

Last Saturday, last week, I went to one of my bosses' openhouse. Considering that I was onleave, I didn't manage to get the address. And guess what, I ended up lost! Haha! Yup, I was lost somewhere in Menglait but Alhamdulilah, I finally managed to find her house. That night, I dragged my bros, Faiz and Muiz to the late night movie to watch the 30 Days of Night; just before I started working again.

My car, which I just did servicing and complained of leaking somehow leak again! I called the agent before they went off for their half day and told them my problem and somehow they just take it lightly and said, it's common after changing the overflow radiator tank and just asked me to top up the water.

Monday - 5th November

It's quiet hectic. I got loads of paperworks to attend to. I went home for just for lunch and half and hour later came back to office and start to do my pending paperwork and I got to prepare for my QCC meeting coming Thursday.


My car water tank goes below minimum and I called the agent to set up for appointment.

Tuesday - 6th November

.....Urrmmm...

Honestly I can't remember what out-of-the-usual that I did last Tuesday apart from work.

Wednesday - 7th November

My sister-in-law messaged me around noon saying that her father passed away after battling with cancer. My brother called soon after that. I, being kepoh (busybody or rather as I like to call it, emotional intelligence) called my dad and informed him. I told my colleague that I might come a bit late to office but by 1.30PM, my brother informed that the body is still in the hospital so I decided to drop by at the office first. By 2.30PM, I made my way to Beribi and by that time, I had to park sooooo far away and hike my way to my sister-in-law's house.
Once I entered the house, it was so packed and I can hear my younger niece, Rabiatul crying. I went to her and managed to console her and from that moment on, she won't let go of me. Even after the cleaning and praying of the jenazah, she still won't let me go. Thinking that I had to go back to the office (as it was only 3.45PM), I had no choice but to hand her to my heavily pregnant sister-in-law. She was crying but my sister-in-law said that she is tired and sleepy and said she will be okay after a nap. I left the house and went back to work.


Once I arrived at the office, a good male friend of mine messaged me and told me another heartbreaking news. His girlfriend passed away Tuesday night and safely buried that morning (Wednesday morning). Me, haven't recover from my shock, just lost of words. I don't know what to say to him and just asked him to bertawakal...

Semoga roh-roh mereka dicucuri rahmat dan ditempatkan bersama orang-orang yang beriman...

My mid-week is rough already and I don't know how I can survive the rest of the week.

Thursday - 8th November

I attended my QCC meeting after work that day and only came home around 6PM. The night is coming early these days. By 6PM, it's getting dark already. I got reports to do, which I haven't touch yet! That night, I accompanied my best male friend, Daneil to the Mall. Actually I was tired but as I made promise with him earlier, I just fullfilled it. Came home around 11PM.

Friday - 9th November

I got terrible headache early morning but considering that I made an appointment with my car agent, I went and arrived there by 8AM. Things got messy when my dad pitched in and asked the mechanics to inspect my car PROPERLY! 2 weeks ago, I complained of leaking and they claimed that my overflow radiator tank was leaking and I paid $500 for that includes servicing. 2 weeks after that, it's still leaking and they discovered that the waterpump is the one that leaked! My dad got pissed off and they said that will redeam that by not charging the labour charge (FYI I paid freaking $150 for the labour charge the last time). After some checking, they found that the sparepart department don't have the waterpump stock! Next shipment is in 3 weeks! YIKES! Dad lost his patience and asked to see the manager.

After some arguing and all, one and a half hour later, they solved it by dismantling the waterpump from one of the new cars and fix it into my car! They lost one new car but what do I care?! If they diagonse my car problem 2 weeks earlier and made the order back then, by now, I will have the waterpump, right?! But no! Because of their careless mistake, they lost a new car and honestly, eventhough this sounds so selfish, I DON'T CARE!! Let them think about their coming stock and let them fix the new waterpump to the new car! And they got no choice but to give me 30% discount for the waterpump.

I was having terrible headache throughout the day but I had to accompanied my mum to attend my cousin's nikah. The function ended around 5.30PM and when I came home, I went straight to bed and sleep till 5AM the next day! Yeah! I slept the whole 12 hours!

Saturday - 10th November

I woke up that morning with slight headache but I'm good after breakfast and ready to work. It was quiet busy but I managed to do some paperworks.

Today, I had to wake up early as I need to attend a half-day course in RIPAS. It ends around 12 noon and it was drizzling. I planned to go and watch the movie but I was so lazy to go out in the rain, so I cancelled my plan. I watched the first 4 episodes of the CSI Season 8 instead....

After this, I need to type in my QCC report and emailed it to the members. I also need to finish up my drug usage report and ready to be submitted by the new year. Everyone has been congralting me on my new appointment..Hmmm...

This coming Friday, Health Expo kicks off and we are asked to attend the symposium in ICC. It will take the whole day....

December, I will have 3 extended duties to do....

I don't think I will have any rest!

Btw, Happy Belated Deepavali to all the Hindus...

Overspent....AGAIN!

Friday, November 2, 2007
This is what happened when I am onleave and got nothing to do! I SHOP! And I think I better stop soon or I will end up broke before the end of the month (ewekk!). Apart from my saving, my salary for October is running low already..hehe!

Just today, I think I blew around $500+! YIKES! What did I bought?! Hmmm..let's see. I bought 3 novels, 2 magazines, some stationeries, another quilt cover set from Aussino, some socks (3 pairs to be exact), brooches, bracelet and some stuffs (hehe!)...

Hmm...if any of you guys outthere know who I am and didn't see me anytime in the future, that means I'm stuck at home, trying very hard to control myself...hehe!

Flying

I don't know whether any of you guys (in Brunei) noticed the RBA planes kept on roaming in the sky yesterday. I think they were having their training or something. One time around 11.30am yesterday, I was in Gadong area and I saw one of the planes flying low, too low in my opinion coz you can see the heat emiting from the engines...

You Parking Idiot

No! I'm not talking about someone in particular. I was just killing my time last night and read some of the well-known blogs that exist in Simpur Blog webiste. From all those long list of bloggers, I coluldn't help but to click on youparkingidiot.blogspot.com. I read the recent posts and I found it quiet funny (on how some of us parked our cars, not realising that it can cause inconveniences to others).

After reading on all those comments and viewing most of the pictures, I couldn't help but wonder whether MY car listed as one of the parking idiots. I managed to scroll backward, from October till March this year and so far, I didn't see MY car or any car that I know.

I'm not expecting MY car to be listed. Although they always said that women are the worst drivers (and there are some proves backing that facts) but I am trying my very best to be a good driver. But I have to say that I'm good at parking. I can do all sort of parkings eventhought driving different type of cars. People I know always told me that they amaze on how I can park a 9-seater van perfectly..hehe! Bragging?! Not so! Hehe!

Anyhow, this blog is intereseting to read and to comment. I even felt frustrated on how some irresponsible drivers just parked their cars everywhere and I can imagine how the contributors feel. After reading all those comments, now I'm on a watchout...My eyes and HP will be ready to snap any parked cars that I FEEL really irritating..so you have been WARNED! hehehe

Any of you that haven't been to this blog and have time to kill, go to this blog...it will sure brighten up your days (or not! if your car is in it....hehehe!)

Where All d'$$$ Gone?!

I started the first day of November by splurging myself! And it was quiet satisfying and filled! In the morning, I went to the banl to pay my dad's credit card but somehow the cash deposit machine in the Jerudong Branch is temporarily out of service so I made a move to the Gadong Branch. We all know how pack Gadong always is so I only managed to get a parking after second round. Settled that, I went straight home, cook for my brothers then fetched them from school.

Around 1.30pm, me and my 2 bros went to the Mall. As a habit of mine, I always aim straight for the basement parking coz I know my chances of getting an outside parking almost none! My youngest bro, Muiz asked me to make a round before heading for the basement parking. He said who knows today I might be lucky. True to his word (masin la katakan), I managed to get a parking, right infront of the main entrance and underneath a tree (so cozy)! Happy with the parking, we got down from the car.....

My first stop is Ko Fom! I know it's kindda late to buy kain for raya (or way too early for next raya) but I need some kain to make work cloth so we headed to Ko Fom! It's been awhile I didn't go to the textile shop and I kindda amazed looking at the latest designs! With my choices and comments from my brothers, I grabbed 3 kains for myself and 1 for my mum and 3 tudongs (scarfs) which all and all cost me.....well, a lot!

My youngest bro met his friends and he went off with his friends so it's just me and Bro Faiz from that moment on. Our next stop, the cinema! We were planning to watch the latest vampire movie, 30 Days of Night but the next show is around 3.40pm and I had an appointment later in the evening, so we postponed our plan till next week (when my bros finish their exam).

From there, we stopped by at The FaceShop. Any of you guys watched Fireworks, the Korean TV dramas. Anyway, in that drama, there is this shop called The FaceStory, more or less like The FaceShop and it's korean! I ended up buying a perfume Soul Green Breeze! It reminds me of iaNTi (sigh!)!

We entered some HP shops (I'm thinking of changing my 3-year old HP), looking at all the latest models but so far, I haven't find the one that I like best. A lot of people I know are using Nokia coz they said it's so easy and user friendly but for me, Nokia is kindda difficult to use ! I know I'm weird!I used to have 1, 3 years ago (before my present Motorola) and I only used it for 3 months before I exchanged with my dad. Anyway, I'm still thinking (coz I spent a lot already for this month) but I like the SonyEriccson W850i...

After HP shops, we stopped at the shoe shops! Charles and Keith - nothing new and nothing that 'catch' my eyes! Cartino Sonea - I fancy 1 shoe but they don't have my size! For shoes, it's kindda hard to find my size coz my feet too small! Even if I managed to find the almost fit, I had to place some paddings (haha!) to make it the perfect fit! And Bro Faiz commented that the heels are too high! Men - they tried to agree with everything you said but brothers - they speak the truth! That's one of the reason I like to shop with my brothers. Another reason, I don't have a man to bring shopping..hahaha!

Tired from all those, we stopped at Swensen! I'm craving for the chocolate ice-creams! Hehe! Spent nearly an hour there, me and Bro Faiz started to make a move. On our way home, we stopped at one of the leading department stores to buy some bulbs and aprons (ours are well worn already) and from the store, I went straight to my tailor, sending all my 3 kains! Hehe! Talk about express huh!

We arrived home around 4.30pm. I'm on 'holiday' (another kind of holiday) so I did some ironing and by 6pm, I took my shower and get ready to go to my best friend's house! She's having an openhouse. Stayed there for 3 hours before I need to go and fetch Bro Muiz from the Mall. Just came home and so drop dead exhausted!

Tomorrow, I'm going for another shopping spree.....not too much, I hope! InsyaAllah! Gezzz...where all my $$$ gone?!!!
