BLACK SWAN

A promise is a promise. Went for a 7 hours ladies day out@Sunway Piramid with my sis - Aina & my 3 cousins - Kak Chak, Kak Ngah n Kak Chik. Mind you they are all younger than me. Fortunately, my other 2 sisters were not around to join us. Hehe....otherwise we would have to use 2 cars. =P

From the parking lot, we entered through the Asian Avenue and I immediately found a handbag that coincidentally match my outfit, bought it and started using it there and then. =P We had our lunch at Sushi King. We took just wuteva that is on display. I didn't forget to order my Ebi Tenpura. =P We ate quite a lot, especially Kak Chak who managed to have a second round before getting off. =P

We went to the cinema n bought 5 tickets to watch Black Swan. Mind you that Kak Chik is underage and that show is for 18 yrs n above. Hehe.....we got away with it anyway. But, I totally regretted it afterward. Too much explicit scene for underage. How irresponsible of me though she looked away through the scene, even the rest of us did....huhu....(+__+)


The storyline is quite interesting though (minus the explicit part). About the determination of a girl who wants to achieve her dreams. Plus, having 2 future doctors around - Aina n Kak Chak, I get to know the terms OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder n others that I don't remember....hehe....that seems like what Nina Sayers (played by Natalie Portman) is experiencing in the movie. Getting too obsess with being perfect in things she do, she slowly loses her mind and started to hallucinates all the way to her death. Quite tragic though, the way her life ended. Just like the White Swan.

We went for a stroll afterward & I manage to get a cute phone case with Paul Frank on it.
Cute huh~~ hehe....

P/s: Can't wait to do it again next time. We'll wait for Dira n Syaz. Maybe during their 4 months semester break.

Sony Ericsson Ku Dicuri Orang

Bagai satu petanda. Ehem...ehem...hehe....Saya telah kehilangan telefon bimbit Sony Ericsson W705 pada hari ini, Jumaat (25/2/2011) jam 1:45pm exactly 2 minggu sebelum my birthday. Not exactly hilang disebabkan kecuaian meletakkannya di merata-rata tempat, tetapi telah DICURI ORANG. Yup, dicuri ketika sedang sibuk mencuci mata di Jalan TAR. Agaknya fon tu dah merajuk kowt sebab tuan dia selalu meluahkan hasrat untuk membeli iPhone 4....mungkin dah tiba masa dia mencari tuan baru....hehe...  =))

First pakai fon tu in November 2009. Yup, beli sendiri. Kenapa pilih fon tu? Bukan semata-mata sebab ia berwarna pink. (not my topmost favorite color pun) Tapi, sebab tonanya yang seswai dengan design fon tersebut. Untuk makluman, saya memilih fon bukan tengok spec sangat.

Nak dijadikan cerita, lepas main game kat iPhone 4 abang akhir tahun lepas, tergerak lak hati nak pakai fon sama. Tapi, memikirkan fon yang ada masih lagi baru (waktu tu x sampai setahun pakai), hajat itu di-put on hold. Plus, lagi berkenan dengan iPhone 4 yang kaler putih n stock yg tu belum ada lagi. Memandangkan birthday dah dekat, gatal2 la gi masukkan fon tu dalam wish list tahun ni. Dengan harapan ayah akan belikan....hehe...=P

Owh ye, fon je ke yang hilang? TIDAK. 

Sarung nyer...hehe...kad TnG serta kad keahlian Fitness First turut hilang sama kerana telah diletakkan bersekali dalam sarung fon tersebut....

Perkara yang paling menyedihkan ialah saya kehilangan koleksi gambar yang diambil menggunakan fon tersebut. Plus, tidur malamku kini tidak lagi ditemani lagu2 dari playlist fon tersebut. :'(

P/s: Papa, sponsor fon baru yek...=))

B.O.S.A.N (ini adalah entry yang membosankan - jangan baca kalau xnak menyesal)

Awal2 tahun ni, kemasukan beban tugas tersangatlah perlahan sehingga menyebabkan kebosanan terlampau. Saya tidak sibuk sepanjang tahun. Beban tugas datang secara berkala. Kebiasaannya, akan menjadi sangat-sangat sibuk di penghujung tahun. Biasalah, kerja kat Bahagian Kewangan. Oleh kerana beban tugas yang ada sekarang tersangatlah sedikit, saya mengambil keputusan untuk menulis entry ini. 

Sebagai makluman, saya menguruskan perolehan Sebut Harga dan Pembelian Terus bagi Kementerian Penerangan, Komunikasi dan Kebudayaan Malaysia(KPKK). Saya bermula dengan Pembelian Terus dan  mengambil alih portfolio Sebut Harga pada pertengahan tahun 2010. Menuju ke akhir tahun, bebas tugas bertambah dengan banyaknya sampai tak cukup tangan nak buat kerja. OT dah menjadi satu kebiasaan walaupun tiada elaun diberi. Nasib baik saya dibekalkan dengan 2 orang EO dan 3 PT untuk membantu melancarkan tugasan yang banyak itteww. 

Dari sudut beban kerja, terima kasih diucapkan kepada Bahagian Khidmat Pengurusan yang rajin membuat perolehan Sebut Harga, terutamanya di hujung-hujung tahun serta kepada Bahagian Pengurusan Acara yang banyak membuat perolehan  Pembelian Terus untuk pelaksanaan Majlis Rumah Terbuka Malaysia bagi  enam perayaan utama di Malaysia. (Ini bukan perli tapi ikhlas. Walaupun sibuk, at least ada kerja. Takdelah kebosanan macam sekarang ni...huhu...)

Kalau nak diikutkan, dengan beban tugas yang ada sekarang, tiap2 hari pun boleh mengarang entry sebab kurang kerja. Tapi, takde idea lah pulak. (+__+) Itu pun jadi masalah jugak. *sigh*

Biasanya kalau bosan camni, akan cari kawan-kawan untuk berborak. Tapi, kesian la pulak. Diorang sibuk. So, apa nak buat ek??

Ikutkan hati nak je pergi perasmian Hari Kraf Kebangsaan 2011 di Kompleks Kraftangan Jalan Conlay. Tapi, mana boleh pergi time office hour. Itu suicide namanya...hehe....Tambahan pulak big boss ada kat sana untuk perasmian tu. *patut mintak kebenaran untuk escort dia pagi tadi....hehe....sukati jek....*

Ending my entry here.....nak menyibukkan diri mencari kerja. =))

Cerita syok sendiri. Memang x boleh jadi pengarang. (banyak melalut)

Kau, aku dan dia......(walaupun xde org sgt yg baca blog ni, still nak buat karangan poyo2 cam dalam majalah remaja...macam tengah bercerita face to face...hehe...konon2 org lain pun ada yang menghadapi dilema yang sama).

Al-kisah,

Ada sorang my friend nih. Dia menghadapi masalah yg sama ngan I. Ekceli, bukan masalah sangat pun...

Ok, kita tukar kepada situasi.

Ada sorang kawan ni, dia dalam situasi yang sama dengan I. (pelik la bunyi.....emm.....wuteva.....) 
Dia ni perempuan. Nama dirahsiakan. Tak baik la pulak. Nanti orang kenal. Apa yang sama???
"Kitorang single." HAHAHA.....(gelak jahat).... Astaghfirullah Al-azim.....teruk betul budak sorang nih.

Hehe...sorila ye....I ada habit membebel kat diri sendiri...=)) [ok, sambung cerita]

Ekceli, dia bukan saje2 mintak nak jadi single. Tapi, mungkin memilih sangat kowt. Tak puas ati sikit jek, terus nak reject. Macam la calon tu ada banyak. Da la zaman sekarang nih lelaki lagi sikit dari perempuan. (Lalalala.....mengata orang. Diri sendiri pun lebey kurang jek....hehehe....memilih gak....)

Ok, abaikan. Ini cerita pasal kawan, bukan pasal diri sendiri. Yang tu cerita nanti.

Latest yang orang dengar. Dia ada berkenalan dengan sorang mamat nih. Kira hensem gak la. Ala...dia pun apa kurang nyer. Ada jek yg puji dia cantik. Especially non-Malays. Dia tu je yang tak pernah rasa diri cantik. Lantak hang la...kang x reti bersyukur, Allah S.W.T. tarik balik nikmat tu baru tau. Padan muka.

Dia kenal ngan FA nih kat satu function (FA bukan singkatan sebenar, saje guna singkatan Fahrin Ahmad...hehe....). Ekceli dia da penah nampak FA nih before. Cuma tak pernah bertegur sapa. Nak dijadikan cerita, kawan dia bagitau yang FA nih mintak nombor dia. Nak berkenalan katanya. Tak tau la betul tak. Tapi, at the same time, dia pun simpan jugak la nombor FA nih. Just in case katanya. Before abes event tu, drg berkenalan. 

Lepas pada tu, drg still keep in touch melalui alam maya & hubungan dia ngan FA nih jadi rapat. Rapat gitu2 je la. Drg banyak kongsi cerita. Dia cakap dia senang kawan ngan FA nih sebab orangnyer jujur. Tak banyak berselindung la kiranya. Pastu pulak, dia tengok didikan agama si FA nih kira bagus la jugak. Memang sesuai sangatlah nak buat calon. Background family pun OK. Arakian, dia pun mula suka kat FA nih sebab ada ciri2 lelaki idaman dia katanya. Apa ciri2 tu secara detail tidaklah diketahui. Malas nak tanya.

Yang menjadi masalahnyer dan menjadi dilema kepada kawan sorang nih, si FA nih tak pernah pulak menunjukkan tanda2 yg dia suka. Mungkin FA nih just nak jadi kawan je kowt. Al-maklum la. Good-looking. Kawan perempuan pun ramai. Pilihan punya la banyak. Keeping his options wide open kowt. Masih membuat tapisan calon2 yang tersangat la ramai itteww. Kawan orang nih pun satu, takde lelaki lain ke hang nak minat? Kan dah menyemakkan fikiran sendiri. Punya la banyak lagi lelaki single kat luar tu. Cuba la bagi peluang kat drg. Mana tau jodoh ada kat situ.

So, macamana ek? Kalau tanya I, my advice is, lupakan je la hasrat hati tu. Step back before terluka. Mungkin itu hanya mainan perasaan je. Biasa la, perempuan ngan lelaki ni mana bole rapat sangat. Time tu la syaitan nak cucuk jarum.

Banyak masa lagi. Hukum mana yang kata perempuan kena settle down before 30? Xde kan? Hukum sesame manusia mungkin la kot. Abaikan aje. Mulut orang, kita bukan boleh tutup. Berkawanlah selagi boleh. Jodoh di tangan Tuhan. Janganlah mengharap sangat pada yang satu tu. Keep your options wide open. Nanti tak dapat, frust menonggeng pulak. Jadi macam orang dulu2. Kisah kuciwa 5 tahun dulu....huhu....frust jek, tak menonggeng pun....hehe....sebab orang tengok dari sudut positif. Berpegang pada satu perkara - Kalau dia bukan jodoh kita, tak guna nak dipaksa.

Live happily. Ada jodoh tu ada la. Jangan terhadkan pencarian....=))....Allah S.W.T. itu Maha Mendengar.

LOL, XOXO

Crush

Crush by David Archuletta
(edited a bit by Ruzanna)

I hung up the phone tonight
Something happened for the first time
Deep inside it was a rush, what a rush
'Cause the possibility
That you would ever feel the same way
About me, just too much, just too much

Why do I keep running from the truth?
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
And I just got to know

Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we can be, where this thing can go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it really just another crush?

Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way I do?
'Cause I've tried and tried to walk away
But I know this crush ain't going away-ay-ay
Going away-ay-ay

Has it ever crossed your mind
When we're hanging, spending time boy?
Are we just friends? Is there more? Is there more?

See it's a chance we've gotta take
'Cause I believe that we can make this into
Something that will last, last forever, forever!

Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we could be, where this thing could go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it really just another crush?

Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way I do?
'Cause I've tried and tried to walk away
But I know this crush ain't going away-ay-ay
Going away-ay-ay

Why do I keep running from the truth?
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
And I just got to know

Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we could be, where this thing could go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it really just another crush?

Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way I do?
'Cause I've tried and tried to walk away
But I know this crush ain't going away-ay-ay
This crush ain't going away-ay-ay

Going away
Going away-ay-ay
Going away-ay-ay


Listening to this song last week got me thinking that I might be having just another crush. Typical lonely girl... which I shouldn't be... =))

Status terkini hati dan perasaan

Mencuba dengan gigihnyer (gigih ker?hehe...) untuk membuang perasaan tersebut sebelum 'sang kuciwa' datang melawat....=))
Sedang muhasabah dan menilai diri sendiri....=))

Post Meroyan

Dear Mr.GI,

In my head I keep asking
All I need is to clarify something
But, I just don't know how to express it
Or what is the best way to do it.

Dear Mr.GI,

Sorry for what I did yesterday
Didn't mean it, I got carried away
I am lucky enough you are understanding, it's true
Otherwise, it would hurt me much to lose someone like you.

Dear Mr.GI,

Whenever needed you are there
Willing to listen, to show you care
Forever grateful for having you
For I can be myself when I am with you.

Dear Mr.GI,

I am happy that I don't have to pretend
You are never there to judge but just be my friend
Though irritated, you are open for a second chance
All I can say is I am lucky to have YOU as a FRIEND!


*But sorry, I just love to annoy you. =))

UK Trip - From Oxford to London

Where do I start.....emmm.....firstly, thanks to KPKK for giving me this chance to have a paid trip to go oversea....=)

Pre-trip (26/1/2011)
Started to pack my stuff at about 11.30pm and done with it at about 1 or 2 in the morning I guess....couldn't quite remember.

27/1/2011
I got up quite early than usual. Adrenaline rush - nervous@excited maybe...The journey started with me taking an Airport Limo at 7.30 in the morning. It was a chaotic one indeed. All my family members had left the house to go to work or school. Once the cab arrived, I dragged my huge luggage out and got back into the house to take the rest of my stuff. Then, I set the alarm on and locked the front door, only to realize that I don't have the remote to close my automated wrought iron main gate. Got back inside, put the alarm off, close the main gate, get the key to the small gate and clumsily tries to lock the front door back after setting the alarm on for the second time. Boy, it was tough having my handbag on one hand and jacket plus winter coat on the other while locking the door. But finally, I arrived safely at the airport at about 8.15 am. Checked-in and waited at the lounge before boarding - upgraded to Business Class meh...hikhik...btw, the rendang ayam was superb....=P


The flight departed at 10.45 am. It was a 12 hrs 50mins flight of DAYLIGHTS. A very tiring one indeed. Thankfully, we were given hot towels every now and then to rejuvenate our self.

Immediately after the flight took off, we were served with what looks like an endless supplies of foods. First, we had our lunch. From appetizer to main course to the desserts, I took it all in while watching movie. Hehe....except for the chocolate muffin....too full already....=P

The list are as follows:
Appetizer - satay & smoked norwegian salmon + bread & butter + fruit salad
Main course - grilled beef tenderloin + mashed potato
Desserts - Häagen-Dazs ice cream




Throughout the journey I managed to take 2-3 hours nap and watched 3 movies - You Again, The Social Network & Life As We Know It. About 2 hours before landing, we were served with SO-CALLED light meals.

The list again:
Appetizer -  cured salmon with marinated + bread & butter + prawn fruit salad
Main course - skipped this one
Desserts - skipped this one


Arrived at the Heathrow Airport at about 4.15 pm (local time) with the temperature at 3°C. On immigration check & while waiting for the luggage, all I can think of was service in KLIA is way better...=P....Was extremely sleepy during this time while waiting for the company's rep to pick us up. Usually, should already be in bed (Malaysia time - 1.00 am). The weather outside was very cold. So, I stayed in instead whilst checking out the shop. Checked-in at Travelodge at 7.15 pm and went for a dinner at 8pm. It is a must since the rep had already prepared the meal for us at his house. Got back and went to sleep at 10.30 pm.


My room - spacious & comfy

28/1/2011


Pergi UK pun sibuk nak bawak kereta. =))
Our lodge is next to Holiday Inn

Checked-out at 7.30 am and had a breakfast at Starbucks; hot chocolate with whipped cream & chocolate muffin with Belgian choc-centered; YUCKS - TOO SWEET; pening kepala nak habiskan muffin ni & rasa macam nak muntah....wekk....huhu....


Met with Azli, our tourist guide (asal Melaka; engineering student@London South Bank University) and Dariusz Dziala, appointed photographer (freelancer from Poland).


Spent 3 hours at Oxford Centre of Islamic Studies (menghayati keindahan seni ukiran kayu Malaysia) and continued our journey to London. Before that, we had our lunch first and stopped at Bicester Village - Outlet Shopping to shop on the way. This is the place to get branded items at a low price. Sort of like factory outlet store. (http://www.bicestervillage.com/)

OXCIS

Impressive woodworks


Reached our hotel in London, Corus Hyde Park Hotel at 8pm, checked-in and went out for dinner at 'tuk din - flavours of Malaysia' sambil dengar radio ERA....hehe....





29/1/2011
Breathed in fresh morning air in front of the hotel and catched a glimpse of the Hyde Park while waiting for Azli. Breakfast at Malaysia Hall. The place is a bit small, but serves variety of dishes. Plenty to choose from. Got our UK sim card - Lebara. Travelled to McArthur Glen Designer Outlet, Swindon to shop from noon till late evening. The store is housed in the beautifully restored Great Western railway works with a Swindon-built locomotive (Hagley Hall) on display in the eating area. Bought a blazer, ties, perfumes and shirt from Marks & Spencer, Cadbury chocolate, calendars,etc.....Had fish & chip (minus the chip) for lunch. My biggest regret....didn't manage to buy a Skechers' sneakers n Radley's handbag....(+__+). That night we shopped for souvenirs at Bayswater Road.

Sight-seeing day - - - > We took the Tube to travel from place to place...it is quite efficient actually....We used Oyster; similar to Touch n Go in Malaysia. Our destination was the Westminster station to see Westminster Abbey, Big Ben & Eye of London. Then, we walked along the road to see Richmond House (Dept. of Health), Downing Street (PM's house) and buildings that housed other ministries; the area is sort of like Putrajaya to us. Then, we head to the National Gallery down the road with the big fountain used to be found in the film with lots of wild doves. But, nowadays, there are not much dove left to be seen.

After that, we took the double-decker to the Tower Hill. Standing under the Tower Bridge, we can see the Tower of London (place for execution of death penalty), the London Bridge (always get mistaken by tourists with the Tower Bridge); Potter's Field Park (the location where Malaysian - London Week was held) and panoramic view of the Tower Hill itself.

Before heading back to the hotel, we stopped at Lillywhites - a sports retailer based at Piccadilly Circus to shop for a while. That late evening, we went to Madame Tussauds to have a little tour there. For me, it ended in just an hour. It bores me off as I am not that fanatic to any of the wax figures there. ;-P Having escaped my breakfast cause not being in the mood and missed our lunch because of the tour, we stopped for a drink at Caffé Nero before heading back.

Madame Tussauds





31/1/2011
Headed to Oxford Street (the whole stretch from Marble Arch to Oxford Circus) early in the morning to shop as that was our final day there. Our flight was at 10 pm and we needed to take off from the hotel by 5.00 pm. Or else, we would miss our flight. Of course we does not want that to happen as the price of a new ticket....can be quite expensive I must say....=P

Had some breakfast at Starbucks while waiting for the shops to open. All I bought here was some souvenirs from the roadside stalls (shirts and key-chains) and Fossil watch (totally love this) - I did get permission from my dad first before purchasing this. =)

My self-bought early birthday present. =)




Came across this while strolling down the street


Followed Azlin into the LV store.


LV Planet

Waiting


At 5.00 pm, we headed for the airport, checked-in and had some meals at the waiting lounge. Getting into the airplane, I didn't realize that I had dropped my phone on the couch at the lounge. At least not until I went looking for it to switch it off for departure. Luckily, somebody found it and passed it to the attendant there. Or else, I would be having a brand new mobile phone by now - probably an iPhone4.... hehe...

On the plane, I skipped my meal, went straight into sleeping mode and woke up 5 hours later to enjoy chicken rolls while watching The Clique & Magika. Feeling bored, I went through the Introduction of 'Dr. Mahathir's Selected Letters to World Leaders' book and have light meals served 2 hours before landing.


I hate having raisins in my foods.

1/2/2011
Touched down at 6.20 pm. Felt great to be back in Malaysia. Took a cab. Fell asleep on the way. Arrived safely before 8.00 pm. Home sweet home. Gave out souvenirs to my family members, got nothing interesting on the TV, went to sleep early at 10.00 pm.
