Now that her nephew passed away, I know it's hard on her. Eventhough it's not her own son but I know how she adored and dotted on all her nieces and nephews. They grew up infront of our very own eyes....
Umar, semoga rohmu di cucuri rahmat dan semoga kau di tempatkan di kalangan orang-orang yang beriman.....AMIN.....
Luckily for me, it's just for 3 days unlike for some of my colleague that have to go and work there for 5 working days! But still I have to think for a place to stay. Sure...they provide the place but it's not the same place like 5 years ago. Yes! It's not the first time for me to go and work in KB. When I started working, I am required to undergo training and rotation and I stayed in KB for a month! They provided a nice place while I was there but this time, the place is taken hence they are giving another place. While I was there, I just coldn't stand life there, it's so quiet! I will go home to Bandar whenever I could and mind you, those days I had to travel a lot further. From 1 end of Brunei to another (from Muara to KB).
Anyhow, I will be there for 3 days only. Thank Godness! Considering that I have to prepare for the upcoming Chinese New Year on the 7th where I will eventually go back to Temburong to be with the rest of the family and InsyaAllah, I will start my 2-week holiday soon after that....
It's raining all over Brunei..haha! Not the rain with water but rain with money...biasalah...bonus is here to stay and go. Yesterday I just couldn't help but to replace my 2 and a half year hp with a new one.... *IMPULSE PURCHASE* which cost me.........hmmm..better left unsaid or rather untyped!
It's Saturday! And I'm drop dead tired! My eyes just wanna close and it's just quarter to 8PM! I haven't finish the Coffee Prince yet and 2 more episodes to go...maybe I will just finish it tonight and tomorrow I can concentrate doing my report *YIKES* I sound like a workaholic!!!

Aunty Fong came to the house yesterday and said that you guys are planning to have a surprise birthday party for Popo on the New Year's eve. How old is she coming? Aunty Fong said that Popo doesn't have any date hence we are celebrating her birthday every the end of the year coming to the new year. Popo is coming to 74 years old then...
Word of advice from your not-so-big-cousin; don't give Popo too much surprise. I don't think her heart can take it. Mind you guys, she just being discharge from the hospital the other day..I don't fancy getting a call to hear that she is warded again..he3! So take it nice and easy...
Last but not least, sorry I couldn't go back to Temburong for the surprise party so I guess I will see you guys in February. It's the Angpow TIME!!!! YEA!!!
Your cousin back home...
For the past week, it had been quiet hectic. The school holz almost over and last week, me and my parents had the oppurtunity to bring my brothers and nieces to Tutong and man, what a roadtrip it was! Why? My dad's driving and him, being a so-called expert driver, took us to the very remote area of Tutong and we ended up lost! YUP! Me and my family were somehow lost in the middle of Tutong. We were from Tasek Merimbun and somehow, my dad used the smaller road which lead to soooo many smaller roads and we ended up pusing sana pusing sini...Hahaha! We strictly followed the road miles and signboards but somehow along the road, the road miles and the signboards just not around *AHAKZ* What a day that was man but Alhamdulilah, we managed to get out into the main highway. Tired from our lost adventure, we stopped by the newly opened Hua Ho in Tutong and fueled up our tummies!
Tasek Merimbun..The last time I went there - that was like 5 years ago - they had the bridge connecting the mainland to the small island but nowdays, there is no longer any bridge! Quiet dissapointing though coz I was planning to bring my nieces over to the other side and they were quiet excited about it but.... *hmmmmmm*
After we came home from our trip to Tutong, I went to the hairdresser and did the hair treatment. Trim my hair a lil' bit...kindda sayang to trim it but nevermind, my hair need a lil' bit of trimming..
Work, as usual. I got some paperworks and reports to do and to be submitted on the first week of January. Changing workplace forced me to finish my reports and all the necessaries before the new year....
My plan for new year's eve? SLEEEPPPPP!! *Hahaha* What a boring life! But that's still KIV for the moment.
I sent my car to the agent last Friday and by friday afternoon, it was not ready yet! The service lady told me that they will try to get it done by Saturday noon. Saturday morning around 10.30AM, I called the service lasdy to inquire about my car and she said, it's not ready yet! *YIKES* Batah jua!!! I asked her when it can be readied and she she probably Monday. WHAT? No car for Saturday night and Sunday! I'm doomed! Even yesterday, I had to borrow my mum's car to go to work! Oh well....But by 11AM, she called and said, ready tia! Macammana kan tu?? Anyway, I don't want to think about that. My $405 gone, my car's back!!! I'm handicapped without it.....
I managed to watch the Alvin and The Chipmunks last Wednesday night *orang sibuk-sibuk bertakbir raya, kami sibuk-sibuk melihat wayang* It's funny and the chipmunks are cuties. Are there any chipmunks being sold? I wanna add to my collections..hehe! And last night, we went to watch the National Treasure 2 - The Book of Secrets..It's a cool movie! I LIKEEEEEE! We took the 10.50PM show, mainly because I don't fancy looking for parking (coz you won't get any) if I took earlier shows; and the movie ends around 1AM!
I woke up this morning, had my shower, breakfast and when I came out, my car gone! Where did I parked my car? Did I left it somewhere? Haha! No lah...I'm not that senile! I rushed up to my parents' room and found out that they were not around. Called my dad and turned out he's driving my car with my mum and niece, Batrisya. I told my dad that I got an appointment at 11AM and I need my car...
I came just in time for my appointment - manicure and pedicure! *AHAKZ* Well, my hand and feet need the pampering too. It was suppose to be an hour treatment but somehow I ended up given a freakin' 2 and a half hour treatment....of coz I LIKEEEE!! Tired but satisfied! And I already make an appointment for the new year... *blisssss* That would be my bonus treatment to me, myself and I.
Tomorrow, another week of work or shall I said, the last week of work in my present workplace.
Next week, another new year
Next week, another new workplace
Next week, another new partner
Once I arrived home, my dad advised me not to use my car (as if I want to risk it). So, I used my dad's car to drive to work and came home 11PM. Tired and exhausted, I woke up early this morning to send my car to the agent.
The computer checking system took 3-freaking-hours! And oooo la la...the ignition coil is busted and I have to change it! *BIG YIKES* I asked them to give an estimated figure to change the ignition coil (PLUS the spark plug and labour charge) and everything comes to FREAKING $405!!! *UUURRRGGGHHHHH* It's the 2nd time in 2 consecutive months that I'm spending too much money in my car! And it's not even bonus yet! *WWWAAAA* Oh well, it's either I fix it or I don't have any car! So....??? Fix it! Money gone, I know but what to do??? Hmmmm...
Alhamdulilah, tomorrow is public holiday but I have to work! Waaaaaa....Till 11PM lagi tu! ISH! Menyeksakan banar eh..baru jua kan rilex! But what to do...work..IKHLASKAN diri....hahaha! And man! I got so many reports pilling up, waiting to be done.... *VERY BIG SIGHHHHHHH*
What do I have to sacrifice this year?? Hmmm....Well, doesn't trimming my precious hair consider as a sacrifice? Haha! Gezz! What a narrow-minded person I am! But hey! I love my long black hair (although it's not that silky) but still it's my hair! And I just trimmed it a bit....so consider sacrfice laaa...
So, there we were, sitting in the living room, watching the Indonesian TV series from my dad's huge giant flatscreen when Atul was jumping on the sofa and Trisya was on the floor - drawing. I think the only thing Trisya ever do whenever she is in this house is to come and knock on my door and said, "Along, minta kertas" and started to draw....Okay, I'm going out of the topic now...
Atul was jumping up and down on the sofa and my mum kept on scolding her.
Mum: Atul, jangan lumpat-lumpat...gugur karang...
Atul: (ignoring my mum, still jumping)
Mum: Atullll...dgr cakap nini, gugur karang...
Atul: (still ignoring my mum...)
Mum: (lost a bit of her temper) ATULLLL! Dgr cakap nini bah..gugur karang..apa kan nie nada dgr cakap ani?
Trisya: (looking up from her drawing and looking ever-so-innocent) ambuk kali....
And me, my dad, bro Faiz, bro Muiz and my mum couldn't help but to laugh!!!
Few minutes passed...
My dad was eating some kacang kuda and when he's done, he asked my bro, Faiz to put away all the extras and Trisya, looking very annoyed and angry approached my dad.
Trisya: Ni (as in Nini), abis makan atu, panyap sendiri bah. Jangan suruh orang.
Dad: (just ignored her and kept on watching the TV)
Trisya: Ni, lain kali, abis makan atu, panyap sendiri bah. Jangan suruh orang.
Dad: (and still my dad ignored her)
Trisya kept on repeating the same dialogue for like 10 times (I think) when my dad finally gave a response.
Dad: Apa kan kaka cakap ani?
Turned out she was so annoyed with my dad that she replied just to annoyed my dad some more...Geeez! Can you imagine kids nowdays? Trust me, my mum said she is a very lucky person to have only a daughter (me) to take care of while my brother, well, he has 3 daughters man! Haha! Good luck Bro!!
I was surfing the Simpur Blogging Nation and I happened to come across this blog site, http://lemmetellyouthis.blogspot.com and I like what's she post in her blog titled "Oh Unfair World..." I asked her permission to copy and paste and Ruzanna, thanx dear! You are a gem!"Hopeless romantics believe in love and fairy tales. They dream of roses and candlelight, walking on the beach at sunset, and dancing in the rain. They know that somewhere out there is a knight in shining armour ready to carry them off, or a beautiful princess waiting to be carried off into the sunset. Hopeless romantics believe in true love, and the eternal bliss that comes from being united with one's soulmate is what they crave most.
Hopeless romantics recognize in themselves the ability to love infinitely deeply, and they ache to be loved with the same fervor in return. When a hopeless romantic has someone to lavish their affection on, lavish they do. Hopeless romantics sometimes write love letters full of poetic phrases and send flowers, but mostly they try to find a thousand thoughtful little ways to show their love. They make romance into an art form.
Hopeless romantics wear rose-colored glasses. In their eagerness to find "the one", a hopeless romantic may either be extraordinarily picky or not discerning enough. Hopeless non-romantics think that hopeless romantics are delusional and too intense. Other than the seeming futility in the search for a soulmate, nothing frustrates a hopeless romantic more than a significant other who does not understand the hopeless romantic temperament.
Sometimes, in this cynical world, it seems like the population of hopeless romantics is declining. One has only to look at the number of movies and songs about love that are currently popular to prove otherwise. It may also seem that there are many more hopelessly romantic women than romantic men. This isn't surprising in a culture where a man might get snapped at for opening the door for a woman. Men and women often have different ways of expressing their emotions, and the number of hopelessly romantic men is probably much higher than anyone could tell simply by observation.
Hopeless romantics are the idealists, the sentimental dreamers, the imaginative, and the fanciful. They give the world its once-upon-a-times and happily-ever-afters. Hopeless romantics may have their feet on the ground, but their souls fly somewhere over the rainbow."
So, am I a hopeless romantics? hmmm...am I?
Don't know the meaning of Blackhole? Well,basically it sucks everything...haha! But nah! I don't suck EVERYTHING. Just most of the things...and I'm getting heavy! 2 years ago, I don't have any tummy but now, hey, I do! Something not to be proud of, I know but you know how sick I am when people kept on telling me that I don't have any tummy and do I eat well..bla bla bla...What? I'm not bulimic or anorexic...Jauh palis! Just because I was underweight, doesn't mean I'm not healthy!
But now, no one can say that I'm underweight and not healthy. Coz' I gain 4kgs for the last 2 years (due to lack of exercise and other ECA) and I'm officially normal. My BMI proves it! But I still need to watch my weight coz at the moment I'm in the middle of normal. If I don't watch out, I will definitly heading to the pre-obese class....Nauzubillah!
What causes my increase in appetite? I dunno! Stress maybe! The workloads are catching up on me..urgghhh.I hate thinking about works on Saturday night.....adiossss!
....And woke up around 8.15am. Went straight for my shower (cold one, mind you) and by the time I'm done, it's already 8.30am! And the cleaning campaign started at 8.30am. Thinking that I am definitly late anyway and I have to travel like 20KM to the place, so I decided NOT to go...Don't fancy rushing on Friday morning....
Went to have breakfast at Faize restaurant with the family and from there..jln2..hehe!
Any of you guys out there ever feel want to live alone in this world? I had thought about it before when I feel the world is unfair in some way or other but after watching this movie, no thanx! I don't want to live alone...It's so freakin' lonely!
"Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable...and manmade. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City...and maybe the world. But he is not alone. He is surrounded by "the Infected"--victims of the plague who have mutated into carnivorous beings who can only exist in the dark and who will devour or infect anyone or anything in their path. For three years, Neville has spent his days scavenging for food and supplies and faithfully sending out radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. All the while, the Infected lurk in the shadows, watching Neville's every move, waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind's last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But his blood is also what The Infected hunt, and Neville knows he is outnumbered and quickly running out of time. " (Copy and paste from Yahoo!)
I have to say that I'm kindda bit dissapointed with this movie. I duuno way. Maybe I hope too much from this movie. But yea! It's an 'alright, okay' movie. But I feel that Will Smith acting is not at his best BUT I love the part where he mimicked the Shreak dialogues...that's cool! Hehe!
Tuesday, work is as usual. I met some of the 'star' (as one of the doctors called it!) patients. But nevermind, nowdays I'm thinking positive and after 3 years 3 months, I will be out of this place and starting January 2nd, I will be in a new place and meeting new patients. I know that I will definitly encounter 'star' patients but I hope not as much as present. Gezz! This area, got so many PIA (as I always called them!) patients. I KNOW that it's part of the job but come on...this area is too much. So yea! I'm looking forward to the new environment and seetings! Something to look forward to and struggle with...Something good might come *wink*wink* Oh yea, that night, I 'fulfilled' a dinner invitation (ahakz! mcm terpksa bunyinya!). Anyway, it went well and he improved a lot (in conversations part!ahakz!) considering for the years that we had known each other.
Wednesday and today, afterwork, I had to rush to RIPAS for Wednesday and Ong Sum Ping for today. I had a CE and a KKC meeting today. Kindda tiring. Instead of going home like everyone else, I'm going to the main offices! Must be a weird working hours I'm having!
Oh yea, before I forgot (my blog post title), just before leaving the office for my meeting, I went to the loo aka toilet coz I need to empty my bladder before caught in the traffic jam. The toilet consists of three stalls and I approached the first stall. Guess what I found or rather saw? No! It's not the poo! Instead of the poo, there are some $1 notes (money) immersed in the loo water and some near the seat. I was thinking, shall I use this seat? I mean, I don't fancy urinating the notes, it has HM's face on it!! Gezz! I can be caught and detained just for doing that. Flush it? Then the money will be gone! So, I take the easy way out - use another stall coz the toilet is mainly empty! I went to the next stall and aaahhhh...emptied my bladder, of course!
While washing my hand, I was thinking about the notes. Shall I fish it out and cleaned it? *yikes* Or just let it be? *hmmm..* Or take a picture of it? *great idea* Remembering that my HP is in my coat (which I'm wearing), I took my HP out and started to make my way to the first stall....when a lady came in! I place my HP back into my coat and with a smile (service with a smile), I walked out of that loo.
Now, some of you must be wondering what I really want to do with that money. Actually, honestly, I think I'm just gonna leave it there. I don't want to fish it out because
1. It's not my money
2. *yuck* I don't fancy immersing my hand into the toilet seat. Dunno what disease I might catch! 3. Sure, it's rezeki but no need to be greedy, right?
So, anyway, our KKC project is progressing very well and yes! now I'm stuck with doing the reports again! Man! I got so many reports to do. I hope my laptop does not explode by the time I finish our project..Nauzubillah! Hehe!
I Am Legend starring Will Smith opened today in cinema here and after fetching my younger bro, Muiz from the Mall, we went straight to Qlap Mall to buy the tickets. Yea! I'm gonna watch I Am Legend in 2 hours time. I think all I do lately is watching movies! A colleague and I were browsing thru' the papers yesterday and we were looking for the movies showing in the cinemas and could you believe it that I saw like 80% of the movies already! My colleague couldn't believe it! And I also couldn't believe it? Beowulf - check! Hitman - check! Enchanted - check! The Kingdom - check! The Heartbreak Kid - check! The Golden Compass - check! What esle I haven't watch? Yikes! As if I don't have any fun thing to do except for watching movie..hehe! Tonight I'll watching the I Am Legend and I'm thinking of watching Alvin and The Chipmunks soon..hehe! They are soo cute....Nanti la....
Tomorrow, I need to attend a cleaning campaign and another meeting before the Christmas and for our department's family day, we will be having a picnic in Muara beach on January 6th and another meeting for that too...Hmmm...MIB - Meeting Inda Beranti....
Anyhoo...I better stop my entry for today/tonight!
If any of you want to know about Cabo (for those who doesn't know like ME!), take a search. Just type in Cabo and from there, surf all you want about this place and it's community!
And believe it or not, I almost got the wrong guy! Don't ask me why but somehow I just can't remember how my blind date looked like..haha! Funny, you must think, right? But that's the truth! I'm good with memorizing anything else but I'm so lousy at remembering faces...YUP! That's me! So, I called my date, asking where he is and he said that he is waiting for me near the ticket counter. I went up to the ticket counter, looked at all the men queing up for the tickets and I spotted this one guy who looked like him. He was queing for the tickets. I smiled at him and he smiled back and I just waited for him by the sides. Then my eyes scanned the area and I saw my date standing near a poster! COULD YOU BELIEVE IT?! I hit on a stranger! Still shocked and embarrased, I went to my date and I pretend nothing happened. I don't want to hurt is feeling by not remembering his face..AHAKZ! I can somehow feel the world is laughing at me but nevermind! At least I didn't go up to the guy and make a conversation...eewww...that would be more ackward!
Anyhow, we watched The Golden Compass and it's kindda full house. It's an interesting movie, I must say...a hint of classis and modern. I like it! It ended around 11.20PM and I went straight home after saying goodbye to my date. It's kindda late for dinner anyway.
This morning, I helped my mum and dad doing some shopping..I LOVE shopping! If I don't have any care or responsibility, I would use up all my money for shopping...don't you just love shopping?! I managed to finish the season 3 of Numb3rs. I'm not that good at maths but watching this series at least refresh my mind on how maths work...hehe.
Around half past 3, I started to make a move to attend my colleague's granddaughter birthday party. And guess what, I witnessed an accident between an Avanza and a Lexus IS200! Man! They were arguing by the roadside. I understand how that feel but somehow both parties were getting hot! If you know what I mean! Polices came half an hour later, taking statements, this and that and well, that's it....lets the insurances think about it...hehe!
Now, m back in my room. I'm suppose to do my KKC report but somehow I'm just lazy! Well, the lazy part always come this time of the day. I just want to lie back and watch the CSI and Bones! Hehehe...laterzzz!!!
Anyway, being a colleague, we never ever talked about each other feelings about personal stuffs. Sure, we gossiped with each other about others (kira mengumpat la tu...hehe), we went out for lunch and afterwork coffee and only recently we watch movie together...and only recently she opened up to me. Well, the thing about her is that she is in her early 30ies and still single. But I admire her courages. I mean, most women I know at this age would just give up on finding someone but no...not for her! She never give up hope in finding someone to spend the rest of her life with and I salute her! Yes..I am!
Recently she had been going out with this guy and although how much she wanted it to work out, it just didn't! They don't have the 'spark' - as she called it!
Now, that is something to ponder upon, don't you think? I mean, sure you will tend to meet alot of people in this lifetime but how many of them you really connected to? So far, there is no a guy that I feel the 'spark'. I'm not choosy but my heart is! Does it makes a difference? Sure it does! I can just 'accept' any guy that I know and be done with with but somehow, I want more than that. I guess, that's what everyone wants, right?
Ummi didn't give up in finding her soulmate, why should I? I mean, life is all about taking risks, don't they? Heartbreaks? It comes with the package....so I will be fine!
I went on blind date....again! After awhile, I think 2 years, I went on a blind date, could you guys believe it?! This thing isn't suppose to happen again coz I promised that I won't go out with strangers again! Urrggghh....But I did!
It's not that the date is that terrible, no! Infact it's quiet the opposite. We had a lot of fun chatting about almost everything! And that's what scared the heck out of me! I mean, I'm not ready for a long term commitment...don't ask me why! And I have a second date with him tomorrow night! YIKES! Don't you thinkit's too fast?!! I think it does!
I don't know what happened lately. Some guys I know that is still single are like racing to ask me out. My colleague, Ummi said that I'm quiet 'laku' this month! Geezzz! I didn't realise that I'm offering special discounts. This week I'm going out with another guy and next week, I have accepted dinner invitation by another....hmmmm...
The name? That's the thing. My brother wanted to named her Adrina Adawiyah while my sister-in-law wanted to name her Adriana Adawiyah AND my dad wanted to name her Nurul Adriana Adawiyah. 3 names, 1 baby!I like Adriana Adawiyah better, sweet and adorable just like her....
