Five hours of sitting down and waiting for all the students to receive their scroll is indeed tiring. It left me with back pain and a huge pain(numbness) in the ass. This is the third time I’ve tortured myself in such situation, every year I would vow not to attend to the next convocation and in the end I always end up being there. I’m pretty sure this is because attendance is compulsory.

I’m so jealous of her highness that can put a smile on her face for all events regardless how tiring it may be. Just imagine how her highness can endure sitting for hours handing out the scroll to all the students. Isn’t she tired? She’s in her 80-s. Last night the Santapan Diraja event also ended quite late and I was definitely torn out. It was so difficult for me to wake up this morning. I think I need more vitamins so that I can be as healthy as her.

Beaten up

Due to the recession of the global economic condition, sponsorship for SLAB /SLAI for postgraduate studies will be in local universities ONLY starting strictly in 2009, and for PhD, only critical courses will be offered abroad. It shattered most of my future plans..

I cannot bear to wait any longer and waste my time waiting. I’ll face the fact and continue to achieve what I’ve set for myself. Before this in 2001, all twinning programmes were stopped at that time, so I enrolled in a local uni. Surprisingly in 2002, they offered the programme back again… It was just not my luck.. this is the second turnover..
A poor start for 2009. There goes my beautiful dream. to continue being dreams...

I’m also jealous of the new Honda city 1.5E, it’s so luxurious and spacious..

if only I’d waited longer.. in both events… I would have got what I wanted. It is just not fated for me and no matter what, I learn to be grateful of what I have now.

east coast

my family and I arrived safely from the long hours of driving from Terengganu last nite at 10 o’clock. The 7 hours journey was definitely tiring as we never travelled for such a long time frame driving on the road.. and I don’t think neither one of us will get used to it. I think that is the main reason why we have never been to Terengganu as a ‘family’. I would be in Terengganu for work similar like ayah and mak will only attend a few occasions with her best friends.

While growing up here and there, our family was really left apart from all my mother’s relatives back in Terengganu. I don’t know them at all, but their names were sometimes mentioned by my mother when she tells us about her childhood memories with her cousins. So, for the past 20 years they have never met my mother all that I can tell u is to just imagine how ecstatic they were when we arrived there. It was frantic with lots of faces in disbelief. As for me I was totally blur coz I don’t know who they were. I was like a lost puppy.. It’s not a matter of meeting 5 or 6 people. It’s like 30 plus that is actually less than the whole extended family. I was like asking each person who they were so that I can put the pieces together in understanding the whole family. Alas, now I’ve met and hopefully will remember their faces in the future. They all hope we’ll visit come again soon and not in the next 20 years time. I am happy that we managed to rekindle the relationship that we will always have. :)

Overall, Terengganu was fun. Lots of seafood (as expected) and they even threw a barbeque party during the malam berinai.. such a different chaotic celebration there I should say. So we travelled all the way to Terengganu just to attend a wedding ceremony. The bride is my mother’s cousin who is also actually the same age as mua. Therefore the relationship between me n the bride would be more of a mak saudara something like that but I don’t call her makcikla..

They were a list of things which surprised me in Terengganu:

1. Went to Mesra mall. Ada Bid Apple, (Not but still 2 thumbs up! Cayala.. the q wasn't long.. :)

2. The wedding ceremony was simple and it only had 2 canopies. We were like biar betul, cukup keR?.. if it was held here, there would be 7-10 canopies. 2 is for engagement ceremonies. Maybe that’s how it’s done there. It is for the separation between male n female seating. One canopy is for the male, the other for female.. we all slumber je sat together. Whose rule is it anyway?

3. The ‘Tuan rumah’ either the mother/any family member will sit in the house waiting for visitors to come while giving out door gifts. Relax jer tak payah amek flower girl..

4. Aturcara majlis 12 noon until 8 pm.. fuyoo lamanya…

5. Difference between majlis perkahwinan and majlis kesyukuran. Differing from perkahwinan, Majlis kesyukuran does not accept any form of money from guest. Presents are accepted :). I actually knew this before from a wedding in Kelantan (my friend’s brother wedding)

6. Lastly, the most upsetting thing of all, I met a nice lady who looks like Shalin zulkifli with her short hair in her mid 30-s. She introduced herself as one of my mom’s cousin, I shook hands with her and we chatted for a while.. On the journey back, I asked my mom about this particular cousin, I was numbed to find out that she is actually a he…

The supposed to be exciting journey ended miserably for me.

I rarely get to watch tv lately but I was so amazed to watch Slamball on AXN. I was so dumbfound to not know the sport that is really cool. I can’t wait for Malaysia to build a court for Slamball.. it’s really fun just watching the game. It is kinda playing basketball but it is more fun as in the 2 pointer shooting area the floor is made from trampoline and the players can actually bounce. They will play basketball in the center court and when moving towards the area the players will jump on the trampoline and shoot in amazing ways. Just like the anime Slamdunk..

I don’t know how the scoring is like since I only got to watch a few minutes of the game but I think the time played are according to quarters like basketball. Maybe the points are the same as well. Am not quite sure.. well here’s a clip of the game. Enjoy.

innalillah wainnailaihirajiun
al-fatihah to ayah fied yg telah pulang ke rahmatullah.
semoga ditempatkan dikalangan org beriman..

kematian sebenarnya menyedarkan kita tentang amalan kita, kerana dgn amalanlah yang dapat mengiri kita ke kehidupan yg baik di akhirat kelak.

i found a text about kematian, it says that..
ianya hanya ketiadaan hidup di dunia.
"Janganlah kamu mengatakan terhadap orang-orang yang meninggal di jalan Allah bahwa 'mereka itu telah mati,' sebenarnya mereka hidup, tetapi kamu tidak menyedarinya" (Surah Al-Baqarah [2]: 154).

"Janganlah kamu menduga bahwa orang-orang yang gugur di jalan Allah itu mati, tetapi mereka itu hidup di sisi Tuhannya dengan mendapat rezeki" (Surah Ali-'Imran [3]: 169).

kerana itula tuhan mengambil mereka kerana tuhan lebih sayangkan mereka.
kita yang masih hidup perlu bykkan beramal dan berdoa supaya Allah luruskan hati kita dan ditunjukkan jalan yang benar untuk kehidupan yang baik di dunia dan akhirat.
amin ya rabbal alamin

in the wee hours

I’m back from the Terengganu trip. Last night I arrived at N9 around 3a.m in the morning. Since I parked my car at the office, I had to drive it all the way back to Bangi. No one was at home to pick me up so by hook or crook I had to drive back. I thought about other alternatives like checking in the nearest hotel, but the thought of going back home the next day and heading to the office again in the morning was tiring, so without hesitation I automatically cancelled the hotel option.

Before I started my journey I thought of many things such as who to call if my car breaks down since my family isn’t around, which radio station I should tune into, when to extremely accelerate (since there’s a Chinese cemetery along the way). I seemed to be relaxed at the beginning of the journey and I managed to occupy myself by singing to the songs on the radio. It was when I got to the nearest toll I felt a sudden rush and my heart started beating fast. Psychologically, maybe it was due to the fact that I didn’t see any cars around me.

Again, I composed myself. My deepest worry was at the cemetery.

So I drove alone in the middle lane and was extremely happy to see a few lorries around. but what disappointed me was that they were going too slow. therefore in the end I overtook them and was all alone by myself. There were a few cars that sped like lightening. hmm.. I would have done that as well but the condition of my car didn’t allow me to do so. So lalalaaa.. I was driving 110km/h and in the middle of the way there was a man standing on the highway signaling me to stop. I didn’t know why but the car kinda automatically slowed down although I was pressing the accelerator . Since my car was slowing down, I caught a glimpse of the man. What I felt at that time was indescribable and I myself couldn't figure out why I was looking at him.... Then thank god that the car was at its normal speed again and I dashed off having lots of questions in my mind which I didn’t have any answer to like did i really experience that? Was it real? Is he lost? Where’s his car/ bike? And a whole load of other questions. I drove off until I reached my destination without thinking about the cemetry which i was supposed to be scared of...

Until now I keep on asking myself those questions. It creeps me out. I will never know the truth. So much of me being curious.
If he was a real person, I hope he’s safe, if not, please go away and rest in peace.

Demam raya

Selamat hari raya aidilfitri
Maaf zahir n batin =)

Raya was a short and simple celebration for me

At first we planned to ‘balik kampung’ to a place where my mum was raised but it was cancelled at the last minute since there was a slight problem with bringing along the two elderly people in our family in an eight hour journey. The fact of it sounds stressful as much as the journey would be. So cancel lah. In the end, Raya was conducted at the same usual spot which is my house. First day of raya would be our open house day from noon till night as we’ve been hosting it for the past years. Early in the morning we’ll save a slot for the sunat aidilfitri prayers and to visit one or two houses in the neighbourhood.

A few days after raya, I surrendered myself to the feeling of drowsiness and had an extremely sore throat. So the following week I had an extended raya break due to a week of MCs. So, I had a short celebration indeed with a long painful –trying to heal break. Although this is the third week, I’m not feeling as good as before since I’m still feeling the on and off cold + fever and my cough is getting worse.

Oh I’ve really been wanting to drink coke since the medicines are not working.

An inner sight

Last night in conjunction with the small family celebration that we had, we contributed for the moreh for the local mosque nearby. Since it’s the weekend, there were many people and the food finished in a vast! Despite the shortage, Alhamdulillah my mission was accomplished.

Before the moreh, during the solat terawikh, a whisper from two girls beside me struck my mind. An act of what I normally do seemed so strange and clicked them from comparing me to a famous figure.

The situation: the carpet of the mosque in my area had been changed to a really thick, soft and comfortable carpet. It’s so comfortable that anyone would lie down and can even fall asleep soundly on it.

The behaviour: when we pray, we place a sejadah (mattress) on the carpet. Since the carpet is so soft, the sejadah would be in a total mess after a performance of 2rakaat terawikh. So after giving ‘salam’ for each solat I would readjust and ensure that the sejadah is in a neat and tidy situation again so that in the following rakaat, I would ‘sujud’ at a sejadah that is neat. Who wouldn’t want that anyway?

So well, surprisingly my actions were observed by the two particular girls

The comment: “Tengok akak tu, macam Bree dalam desperate housewives”

After overhearing them, I looked at them and smiled. It was a realization period for me. Is it true? Am I really like BREE VANDERCAMP? Oh no!! then the fact that I looked at them and smiled was also so bree-ish. I just couldn’t accept the fact. So during the next two terawikh I was not 100% khusyuk, I was thinking about the statement and it really disturbed me in my prayers and it made me evaluate more about myself.
It was such a reality check!

So what if I like neat things and classify items in order? I will be in a total chaos if I don’t. the situation of not doing things in order would make me feel even more uncomfortable. And yes finally I do admit that I am vandercamp-ish a bit.. it is me and I take it as a part of my life. I never thought of myself like the character in bree, but since I have a figure to compare to it does give me an advantage to learn more about myself. :)

Since I am so Bree-ish, I had some baking done today as a preparation for the eid Mubarak celebration. Pulling the cookies from the oven fascinates me. I am truly excited to bake another type tomorrow!

Dude, where’s my bumper?

Don’t worry. It’s not my car.

This is the front rear of a car which unluckily has a driver with the inability to drive and doesn’t have manners. The person driving JFW doesn’t have manners at all.

His car accidently hit my sister’s car while she was at the roundabout. I was with my sister at the time and I was so shocked because of the incident. We did what we had to do, so we stopped at the roadside to see the damages. Then of course the car stopped behind us. We were hit from the back from the left hand side. Our car only suffered a slight dent and our scratch marks on the bumper. But unfortunately, for that JFW, the whole front bumper came off.

The driver of the car came out raging with anger and scolded at us blindly. I was calm throughout the whole process since why should you yell at people with vulgar words. It’s not going to rewind the time and repair all the damages. What's the point? Do you think that you’re so good coz you are able to use the F word and other ranges of it? It in fact reflects the other side of your personality which is having no EQ. not only EQ but IQ as well, okay…let’s say if my bumper came off, I would collect it. I told him to collect his but he didn’t want to. I didn’t know what he was thinking at that time and since I didn’t want to force him so I just let his stupidity be with him. It was getting late so we decided to meet up the next morning to further discuss about the incident.

The next morning, we were ready to lodge a police report, he came to meet us bringing along his sister and practically the entire family (in another car).. I was wondering where the girlfriend was..(he was driving with his girlfriend that night).when the sister came to me I was expecting someone wiser and able to handle the situation well unlike the brother but she was the same as him. Someone with low EQ as well. It must be in the breed. They demanded us to pay them, and I was like..hello, do u think I am stupid? I wanted to lodge a report. Unsatisfied about my decision, she consulted her husband and after 15 minutes of discussion, she made up her mind to follow us to the police station.

At the police station, we lodged our reports but we didn’t know what each other testified. My sister lodged the report since she was driving the car. As the investigation proceeded, both were found guilty since they both took the wrong lane at the roundabout. So the sergeant came out with a verdict and said, “dua-dua rosak, jadi claimla insurance masing2.”

We were frustrated since we could have won since he hit us from the back side but the law is still the law and we ought to respect it. This dude and family wasn’t, so they were fuming with rage and kept on saying that they want to claim it on our insurance. Why is that so? They said that WE crashed into them.they put the blame 100% on a small dent in front of our car that was caused 5 years ago. but realistically, the damage that was on the car due to that accident was on the left side!! How could it be infront?! where's your sense of logic?.! We finally managed to put the pieces together that he actually lodged a false report admitting that we hit them. Luckily the police did their own investigation of a liar’s claim. How could there possibly be 2 dents on different sides of a car in a single crash?. Come on-la idiot!

This low IQ and EQ man surely needs to practice driving and try to remember what happened during the accident. His low memory of the accident reflects why his IQ is low. If we really wanted to, we could have sued him for making a false report and not pasting ‘P’ sticker – we found out that he was a ‘P’ driver after making the report.

I guess in the end dumb people don’t get anything. Then I realized, no wonder he didn’t want to collect his bumper (which was still in good condition). He was so sure that he’ll claim it on our insurance/ we’ll pay him. I feel so sorry for him- in an evil kind of way. The most of all is I pity his girlfriend having to live her life with this man and the family which doesn’t have manners.

Of my own matters

At times we forget to ask ourselves why we are here on earth. We tend to succumb to the materialistic world and become more in love with it thus forget why we chase for it in the first place. I hope I won’t forget my roots. Without realizing, sometimes we are so tempt in searching for all the necessity in life because it is a need. What we really have to do is ask ourselves why we need it in the first place and remind ourselves constantly of why we are here.

"Kejutkan aku seandainya aku tertidur, tegurla aku seandainya ada tersilap, bangunkan aku seandainya aku terjatuh dan kuburkan serta talkinkanlah aku seandainya aku mati.."

Have you wondered what will happen if you are not here anymore? We often experience the loss of a loved one but imagine that you’re the one. It scary to think about that and makes me hard to sleep at night. As human beings, it is a norm. Thus, to ensure we are safe and happy in this world and hereafter, we need to remember why we are here and perform good deeds and pray for the best. Even though when a person is not around us anymore, we have to pray for the best for him/her for the betterment of their life after death. It is the prayers of good friends and family that will ensure us to live happily ‘ever-after’.

So much for being a Libra!

Lost parents

Tonight I had to work and buy my own dinner. My dad had to attend a meeting at KLCC, my mom tagged along since she’s planning to go shopping.

At 8 o’clock I had the weirdest phone call from my mom,

-Kak Ngah, where’s the toilet here?..

I was like -Ha?.. where?


-Mak…. (malu)..tengokla sign (dalam hati: mesti lupa bawa spek ni)

-Surau sekali…mak tak jumpa…

While I was verbally illustrating it to her through the phone, there was something else that lingered my mind. They are so the homey type of parents whom I love spending time at home with. But sometimes you’ve got to step out in your comfort zone once a while to explore new things.

Mom and dad never wanted to follow us (siblings) shopping; they would just drop us at the entrance. Next time, I have a solid reason to force them to come with us.

esok cuti israk mikraj.

that's all i need now.

I’m 24 and I think someone broke my heart..

I feel like one of Picasso’s painting.

Thursday, July 24, 2008


A student stopped me at 2 o’clock when I was on my way to another class on one of the days where I had a packed schedule from 8am-4pm.

Student: Miss, what’s the meaning of pretzel?

Me: Pretzel. Something you can a snack. It’s between a biscuit – bread. Softer than biscuit harder than bread.

Student: confused face.

Me : it’s like this.. (tried drawing on my book with my imaginary pen-my finger)

Student still confused. Some of her friends nodded.

Me? tired of explaining.

Me: After this go to Alamanda, find Auntie Anne’s kiosk and buy a pretzel.

I left them clueless. Hopefully they did go and learn how a pretzel looks like and buy one to taste it. As for me, I know that I’m so cruel. Poor students. Wrong timing, it was lunch hour and i haven't eaten anything since the morning..You can put the blame on me, I was hungry…


Tomorrow I have to attend a course about Learning Management System. I don’t have a single idea of what it’s related to so I thought I would do a little bit of studying before the actual class starts.

The definition; taken from e-learning consulting is
The Learning Management System (LMS) manages the delivery of self-paced, e-learning courses. The LMS lets you publish courses and place them in an online catalog. Learners log into the LMS using a browser, select courses from the catalog and launch them. The LMS tracks the learners’ activities with the courses. The LMS provides online reports for each course and learner.

Okay. Enough studying. Ehee. Basically, it’s something related to e-learning.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll learn about the software used for this system and how to use it. Hands on learning is surely exciting..

Ok. Tired already.
Time to sleep.

Study + Tido(Tidur) = Studo

Not a handsome result

I wanted to get something to soothe my throat so I went to the clinic. When it was time for the doctor to check me I became extremely nervous. It was like a sudden rush out of nowhere. he asked me numerous questions, checked my throat and took my BP, then… he immediately told me to lie down. I was like..”why do I have to lie down..i’m not pregnant… then negative thoughts clouded my mind. Am I sick? Do I have to take my appendix out and lots of other stuff which I really don’t know how the thought could cross my mind. The doc continued checking my stomach, which at that time produced various sounds which at the end made the doc to ask me” have you taken ur lunch?.. I smiled. Is that an indication of yes or no. why didn’t you eat yet? to be honest I forgot to eat and when i wanted to I was busy with other stuff.. But I drank Nescafe in the morning.. (it was just as a cover)

Me not taking anything yet until 4pm led him to more questions which I didn’t want to answer because I wasn’t in a pleasant mood of explaining. To make it short, coz I’m not in a mood explaining myself he told me that my BP was a little too high which was 130/90. (That was why he needed to check my BP and stomach etc..)

He told me:
Not to skip any meals even though you’re busy.
Not too pressure myself about work.
Get enough sleep.

How can I not worry about work. It’s the first and last thing I think about everyday. I have to plan a workshop for the new batch before the first week of july. I need to work on modules and evaluate and develop new materials. This is excluding the programme that is presently running and programmes that will commence during orientation week for students.

Now I really feel like I don’t have a life.
On top of that, I got something that I didn’t bargain for..

Oh, Kim Yeow

I met Uncle Kim today. He was as cheerful as always but today he brought an umbrella since it was drizzling and surprisingly he wasn’t on his bike.
He smiled and waved his hand at me. I replied back.

I said, “Hi Uncle, jalan kaki pulak hari ini”
“Harga minyak sudah naik”, he said.
Then we both laughed and he continued his journey.

Uncle Kim owns a workshop nearby our house. A man rich as rich as uncle kim is also saving up on petrol by walking to work every day instead of riding his motorbike/driving his car. Only fuel can change a man.

i got it from my papa

Advices from my father:

1. There's nothing easy in this world. If everything was meant to be easy there wouldn't be a purpose for us to live in this world.
this always comes out after any exams or anything difficult things that i had gone through when he asks me how the day was like.

2. Everything needs to be systematic
from organizing papers until arranging the clothes in your closet.
yup everything has its own routine of procedure of doing things. i was raised this way since i was small.

3. Do things the right way
everything that is executed must be correct.and make sure you do it correctly the first time. if you don't know how to it ask for help.but only ask for help, not for others to do it for you.

4. Finish up everything that u put on your plate.
finish your food. if you're the one who scooped it, you better finish it. i think this one is to avoid wasting any food since he's the breadwinner of the family. so take small portions and if it's not enough you can add some more. as for me i always took a lot and i ended up stuffing myself and now i'm a stuffed human being.

5. Have a back up plan
need a plan B if your original plan fails. he always tests me if it doesn't work out this way how would i overcome it etc. i always have a back up plan since i know he'll ask me. then he'll ask me another back-up plan for the back-up plan. i don't worry too much about this cause i know he's thinking of another plan as well.

i think that's all. the crucial ones that he is particular about.
oh one more, don't make simple things complicated.

i am what i am now because of my dad.
blame it on him.

happy father's day to all fathers out there

orang gaji

I don’t think paying civil servants twice a month is a brilliant move. Even when they are paying us once a month we are eagerly waiting for the money. When it becomes twice a month we’ll be waiting the first time and will eagerly wait again for the next payment. It doubles the grey hair production. It is certainly not good for the hair.

i just don’t like to fact that I’m going to receive the pay slip with only half the amount that I’m getting now-twice. It’s not good for the ego. It’s also hard to save up as well. I don’t know why the government needs to change this and that, that are making me feel uncomfortable. Majority knows that the government is in its phase of shortage of RMs. Why don’t they just admit it? Blame it on the ego.


I just got back from KL. Today’s the submission for all the scripts before being checked for the last time tomorrow. Hopefully there won’t be anything that needs amendment.

After that, I’ll be free! Free! Free! I’ve been burying my head in the ground lately and there were several things that I just had to pass such as going to Singapore (which were supposed to gotoday) and cancelling a few trips with my friends as part of cuti2 malaysia for the last 2 weeks: they always have fun when I’m stuck with work.

Last night, I had a terrible dream. I dreamt that on the morning that I had to hand in the scripts I still had a bundle of scripts which were left unmarked. I freaked out and started to imagine my group leader scolding me; then I suddenly woke up and my grandma was next to me trying to wake me up just to ask whether ‘dah azan subuh’ or not. Fuh, luckily it was just a dream.

I have to get myself straight now. Enough is enough.

i miss my office.

what a strange statement but ireally do miss it. it has been a week since i haven't been to my all started last week when i had to do some 'outstation' work, although the distance from the my office wasn't more than 10 km.heheee.

but still, it required me to be there for more than eight hours whereby i had to leave my house at 6:30 in the morning, arrive on location before 7:30am... never in my life i had to wake up extra early which was at 5:30am to bathe and get ready to work.. i did that for wvery single day for last week and 2 more days to go for this week.

so last week from monday till thursday i didn't go to campus, then i was called for a meeting on friday,i still didn't make it to my room as i went straight back home since it ended quite late in the evening. now, still i'm still in my'OS' mode but the work is nearly settled and everything is falling into place.

so can't wait to be in my office on thursday! i have never been so excited to go to office.seriously.

one more thing that i miss is..
eating doughnuts which i think are the best doughnuts evar..kalah big apple n dunkin doughnuts..
i only ate it three times. it was introduced by my friend the first time where we had to queue up so long but wow! after eating it it was worth waiting for.

2nd time had it in indonesia(kak yanti said this is where it all not sure about the fact but will try to dig about it later..),surpisingly line wasn't as long as the line in malaysia. there were only 3 people queuing up. yay! and the third time was thanks to kak.yanti for bringing some back home. but it's still not enuff, i want more, i want more!!
must eat doughnuts once a week, eventhough the que is long!

go all out for mouth watering, indulging unluckily fattening food

other tasty dishes that i lurrve

Beef rice @ Dakken Coffee and Steak

Waffles @ Alamanda foodcourt

i heard this somewhere, it might be from one of oprah's guest
"once on your lips, forever on your hips"

future kueh raya

What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You

You are unique, creative, and fascinating.

You don't do what's expected of you.

You go for what's unknown and uncharted.

You are emotionally expressive and sensitive.

You're effected by everything around you.

Your friends appreciate your open heart, but they are afraid of hurting your feelings.

You love to be the center of attention. You enjoy entertaining your friends.

You feel lost when no one is interested in you... You're too interesting to be ignored.

sep, awk kena!

being tagged feels like when u were back in kindergarten playing the chasing game with your friends. sep, u kena!. then suddenly it becomes your turn to chase around others. after running around and using all your strength to run, in the end, especially when you fail to 'sep' others you tend to give up and think, why am i chasing them for...

i think the same concept applies here.

well, i don't know the objective of tagging, but i guess no one cares since the questions are simple to answer and like other ordinary people they continue tagging.. but seriously, why was it created in the first place?seriously, i don't know and i'm going to leave that for a point to ponder on...

Normally I won’t be writing these things online. But just in case I have Alzheimer or become senile when I’m older at least I have it jotted online.

Last weekend (21st April- today ) was a hectic life for moi

  • Had tonnes of assignments to complete
  • Help prepare the list of part timers for next semester (anyone interested?)
  • Surprise Birthday celebration for my friend
  • Attended three ‘lectures’ which was beneficial for weight watchers like moi
  • KPM marking.
  • Went to Indonesia, needed a whole load of RM’s for shopping.
  • Had fun entertaining moi x-roommate at home and became roommates once again
  • Attended one important examination’s meeting. Not mentioning which one.
  • Invigilate. Invigilate. Invigilate. = marking. Marking means more scripts!!

My body wants more rest while my mind is thinking about work.
Tomorrow – rest. Labour Day

ROLD-rest on labour day

Weekend wrap-up

I spent the weekend at Glory Beach Resort, PD. The resort was ok-lah ,there is not much to elaborate on..but the pool was fun-tastic especially the slide (it’s suitable for small kids and big kids like me. B-D )

I didn’t bring along my camera(the pic above is from a website). So, sorry mates. No pictures to serve you. I attended a seminar given by Prof Dr Mohamed Amin Embi about publishing and it was definitely fruitful for me as a novice2 researcher. At least now I get to know the do’s and don’ts in writing articles and how to expand my scope of studies. Right now, I’m so pumped up to write another article! I also managed to buy a book from Prof Amin. It’s about e-learning and it is actually a compilation of several researchers on e-learning conducted around Malaysia. Am too lazy to get the book right now, maybe next time I’ll tell you the title. It costs around RM36 outside, but through Prof, I managed to but it at a cheaper price. I am so happy! I love buying books and the smell of brand new books is definitely tempting.

Back to the course, I was there as a guest for a day only since while the rest had to revise the course modules and other training stuff which I was happy to observe and evaluate. Hehe.. I sound so cruel right now. That night while other people were busy revising and doing other academic stuff, I spent the night meeting one of my bestie (shima) with her husband.. We hung out like the old times, had dinner n talked a lot…and the next morning we took a stroll along the not so white sandy beach…and continued talking about anything that we could create a subject on. Mmmm…We really wished that all our friends can spend a weekend together to catch up on stuffs. Really miss ‘em much!

Altogether my weekend was a blast! I enjoyed all my activities and really balanced my life in terms of personal life and work. Hopefully in the future I’ll have more opportunities to hang out with my friends and family and work productively at the same time. I don’t want to work hard all the time while leaving all the fun activities aside. It is much better to kill two birds with one stone.

11th April

11th April 2008 – sister’s birthday

Why I call her weird.

When invited to go out to celebrate she refuses. She doesn’t even want to get out of the house. She refuses any kind of cake, muffin or even brownies. She rejected everything handed or offered to her.

What do you want to do?
All she wants to do is stay indoors and lock herself in her room. Now, she is listening to a particular song for the hundredth time I think... It’s so irritating.

I hope someone won’t die on their birthday.

Maybe she’s just afraid of getting older or she’s in denial of what reality brings. Sometimes we do have that feeling of not wanting to grow up, but when reality snaps back in we realize that we cannot be childish forever.

topping resolved

Last night I slept at 1 am in the morning baking muffins for my students. They invited me to the party at the last minute, that was why I didn’t have time to prepare before hand. Well I managed to gather all the ingredients needed and finally at 11 the baking process started. I also made the topping and I found a simple recipe for the topping which I will definitely use next time.

For the topping, you’ll need
½ a cup of cocoa
½ a cup of condensed muilk
1 tbs oil

as easy as that.
it's so simple.

it's true when people say that
"it is the easiest things that are so challenging to do".

in pain

It hurts so bad!

I knocked my head onto something square and hard. My head hit exactly at the corner of that stupid metal thingy. It was really painful and it still is. At the time of incident, I wished I could swear out loud. But then I didn’t since the students were lingering to and fro. I think that there’s a dent in my brain. My head is swollen. Am so damn scared to see the doctor, what is even more humiliating is to tell him what happened. Wanna put some ointment on the area affected but it’s a bit weird putting some on your head or to be precise hair. Well if it doesn’t heal until next week, I’ll see the doctor.

Since last Monday, my left eye selalu berdenyut. It hasn’t stopped and is still beating fast till today.. Confusela. Penyakit ke, petanda buruk ni..
