.Hard Rockin' Day.

the three days and two nights honeymoon trip to Hard Rock Hotel Penang was totally awesome! everything rocks and we had a blast. from the bed to the food, to the spa and the pool, the room, the beach, the lobby, the hotel shops, the hallways, the people, the live bands.. everything at the hotel have made us wanting to stay there forever.

well, i couldnt agree more when it is called first class entertainment hotel. we were allowed to turn on the music as loud as we can in the hotel room and no one was bothered about it. that's one of the coolest thing that one can do at this hotel. ngeh ngeh.

let the pictures do the talking (nway, these pics are taken by camera phone. pictures from the camera still cannot be retrieved)

petang tadi jalan jalan tengok Dungun banjir. masuk kampung keluar kampung... it's flooding everywhere. kesian those people yang umah and kedai masuk air. some shops are still operating mencari rezeki. some food stalls along the road to UiTM are also operating though air kat bawah sket je lutut. and some people still go to the flooded eateries to fill up their hungry stomach. duk bersila atas kerusi. nice.

now the rain has just stopped but i believe it will come back soon. the frogs are singing, calling for the rain =)

anyway, there was a mouse in my kitchen. i noticed the poos here and there but couldnt find exactly where it was hiding until yesterday i heard such sounds it made. went to 5 shops around town to get the trap but it was a total failure. couldnt get any. went home, frustrated.

was cleaning the kitchen when i suddenly heard the sounds again. behind the kitchen cabinet. grabbed the air wick odour stop (citrus) spray and sprayed in the cabinet. didnt have to wait long when i saw the small greyish creature coming out from the cabinet to escape under the kitchen door out of the house. blocked the gap under the door. relieved.

will be going to Kuantan tomorrow. cant wait to see him. we will be house hunting insyaAllah and watch a movie. New Moon maybe?

.having babies.

......................is it supposed to be planned or not?

.this is for Jet and Shef.

Congratulations dear Jet and Shef on your new bundle of joy, Adam Zuhayr.

.some wedding shots.

.finally she speaks.

here i am again. it has been some time i havent written anything here and it makes me feel guilty of not doing so. was too busy with almost everything i barely had time to go online.

well, married life is totally cool. though i am only married for 10 days, there are already ups and downs and i believe these are the things that are making it even more beautiful. new things are discovered and learned and we are enjoying every moment of it.

talking about the wedding, it was a dream came true and i loved everything about it. for those who made it there, thank you so much for being a part of our beautiful wedding memories. we had a whole bunch of great time and it was the moment i'll never forget. and for those who were not there, it is okay, insyaAllah we will meet again some day. and friends dearest, thank you so much for the gifts and wishes.

Eidul Adha was celebrated with joy, everybody was excited with the 'newly weds' that we had to go here and there visiting families of both sides, getting to know 'em. exhausting but worth the effort, after all they are families.

and now i am finally home in Dungun. re-organizing my life as a wife, a paid worker and a daughter. there are many things to be considered. the house is still in a total mess. wedding stuffs are still laying around here and there, wedding gifts are consuming a quarter of my living hall, there are laundries needed to be done and the weather frustrates me, it has been raining since early morning and i wonder when it will stop. i just cant wait to move out and live together with him. properly.

.the life after this.

at times i wish i have more time for everything. wedding preps, school, work, family, him, friends and myself. i have been really busy with everything that i always get sick these days. migraines, gastritis and extreme exhaustion. some nights i barely sleep causing me to sleep under my desk at the office during the days in between classes. and when i get home, i will be really tired to really do anything at all. in fact, sometimes i refuse to talk to anyone especially when i teach four classes in a day which is equivalent to eight hours of teaching in a day. im currently havin difficulties focusing on my work and study and things always get messed up.

im about to embark a new life soon. will have someone living in the same house, sharing things, doing chores, being responsible, being tolerate, extended families i barely know but will get to know 'em better, restrictions and bla bla bla...

can i cope?
insyaAllah...

.chentahati.



you make my day.
thank you

.the babies' affair.

encikluzd's cousin is now a proud daddy of a boy. born some time last week- i cant remember exactly the date of birth but i remember we were very excited looking for the perfect gifts to give him. did some shopping and bought him a very damn cute romper and a pair of baby shoes. hopefully we can see the baby some time this weekend as we're going back to KT.

and Jetto my dearest friend announced in her blog that she is going to have a boy too! insyaAllah. kinda excited to shop for the comin baby though her wedding gift is still pending. haha. sorry ek Jet. now the excitement has transferred to your baby. abes la dia.. aunty suya just cant hardly wait!!!!

oh, and cute Nawal, though we still have not met, i miss you dearly. you too have special gifts from me =) im really sorry for not comin to see you. been really busy these past few weeks . i will try my best to see you ok. pwomish!

and the other day nadia sent me a picture of little Salma. she has really grown. the last time i saw her was months ago. if im not mistaken, during Jalak's wedding. and now even Jalak is going to be a father soon. anyway, Salma has started to walk. what an incredible thing to watch. i miss you too Salma.

congratulations proud mommy and daddy.
i am so proud of you.

assignments and work are killing me. lack of sleep just adds up to the burden. things are very difficult now with tonnes of things to do with so little time to fit in. at times i really feel like abandoning everything- work, study, wedding, assignments.. and snuggle comfortably on my not-so-cool-couch-but-so-grateful-to-have-it and watch TV and do nothing else but watch TV.
oh, and cook. i just realized that i might have fallen in love with cooking.

today, the menu was nasi ayam. and it was my first time. and he enjoyed it. he really enjoyed it.

=)

.lovin it.

wedding preparation is really making me exhausted. anyway i just love these. would want these kinds of pelamin for my wedding.



(for nikah)



(reception at the hall)
my small-spaced living hall is in a total mess and i am so damn lazy to clean it up. was working on the door gifts and now that it is done, i hate the fact of cleaning up the mess. hmm...
anyway, life has been really hectic these past few weeks that i hardly have time to blog or facebook. been a silent reader to some blogs though.

up to this day, the activity of fasting is great. Alhamdullillah, no signs of gastritis. and ive lost 2 kilos but not really proud of it as my eating habit is still crazy. haha.

oh, and it is kinda sad to break fast alone at home. most of the days. but then, thinking of it again and again, what choice do i have. at times i think that maybe im losing weight because of this because sangat tidak berselera to break fast alone. in fact i tried to tambah nasi today but failed. satu pinggan sudah cukup. couldnt eat more though the lauk i bought sangat sedap. huhu.

classes are crazy. i hardly have time to rest at work. everything is in a hurry because i need to cover the syllabus ASAP. the mid term test will be in the first week of September. plus, classes are packed. i have two days of six hours teaching without gaps. lucky the classes are not located far from each other or i might die on my way rushing to the class. always i am out of breath once i enter the classroom and the students will look at me as if i just ran a marathon. and while they feel chilled in the air-conditioned room, i sweat like hell in front of the class. duhhh!

and during yesterday's night class, the students hold a birthday party to one of the class member. it was fun but i was so full to eat the slice of cake. it was done after the class ended. i went home early as my encikluzd was here in Dungun. just couldnt wait to see him.

tomorrow i am going to KL with him. there are a lot of things to do and buy. hopefully everything will be great and as according to plans.

.Happy Ramadhan friends.

stole this from Hana.

"It was the month of Ramadān in which the Qur’ān was [first] bestowed from on high as a guidance unto man and a self-evident proof of that guidance... (2:185) Al-Quran.....Ramadan Kareem! May Allah accept our duas & help us rejuvenate our faith."

. i want to be a master too.

so i went to the wedding exhibition at Centrum, Setiawangsa today with pijat who was kind enough to accompany me. the place is so new that there are no clear directions to it but we were lucky enough to accidentally find it despite the heavy rain and traffic jams.

not many booths were set up yet because they only started the event today and will last until the 15th of August (if im not mistaken). i was there to only check out the wedding invitation cards. did some surveys and discussions and decided on one. will email them the particulars as soon as possible.

and later we went to KK deco at ampang because i needed to buy some wedding stuffs. most stuffs are on sale but i didnt get mine on a good bargain. danggg!

nway, congratulations dear Hana on your graduation. well, u are a master now and i am so jealous of you! i still have one year and a half to go and that will only happen if i do well. haha. oh.. i hope i will do well. i want to be a master too.

.bila aku kata rindu.

dia kata: adi pon rindu tuya gop. meh ar sini kuatam. kite berdatim.

Monday, August 10, 2009

i have no idea what went wrong but the wireless router is not working again today. it really frustrates me because i just bought this one (Belkin) a couple of weeks ago.

the listening test paper for BEL260 is still in the making. been wasting a lot of time doing something else rather than this and was being asked to submit it tomorrow. kinda a last minute work but since I've done this before, there shouldn't be any problem i hope.

as for tomorrow, classes will be canceled again because there is going to be a meeting for the new lecturers which i have no idea why some of us who have served for more than a year is considered 'new'. honestly, at times, it sucks to have the classes canceled when i am so prepared with the activities and materials and very eager to teach and be part of the learning process. duhh...

and today, one of my students showed one of the major symptoms of H1N1- non stop sneezing which had made me asked him to leave the class for the clinic. very much to my surprise, he refused at first by saying that he didnt want to miss the lesson. oh boy..
anyway, i insisted for him to leave as to avoid the spreading of the virus to others and reminded the class the importance of wearing the mask.

thinking about the virus, it's scary but it's the fact.

.the fetish.

well, here i am again. exhausted but somehow excited of everything especially about the wedding. did some wedding shopping with my dearest little sister at KLCC last two weeks. Acca Kappa was having such a promotion we could not resist from not buying. so, i bought the hibiscus perfume set (EDP parfum, bar soap & body lotion) and two hair combs! one for me and the other for baby sister. had been eyeing on that perfume set for quite some time and the promotion was just like 'langkah kanan' for that day! and i will be adding that set with the other toiletries from Crabtree & Evelyn for my hantaran.

and since my encikluzd came to KL as well last week, we did surveyed on Sony Ericsson handphones for his hantaran. it was part of my plan to make it a surprise wedding gift for him, but then after realizing that he should choose the kind of phone that he likes, i guess, it's no more a surprise. nway, he still havent decided on which phone he wants. it's ok love, you still have time. we also went ring-hunting and found a perfect one for him. he loves it. i knew it from the looks on his face when he tried it on his finger.

it was fun doing wedding shopping with baby sister and my encikluzd. they understand me. they know what i want.

oh, encikluzd and i also attended Zalina's wedding reception at Bandar Manjalara. Zalina and i were in the same class in primary school (Sek Rantau Petronas, Kertih). we lost contact when i moved to Kuala Terengganu and managed to find each other on Facebook! it was great to meet some school friends again and to see familiar faces of people who used to be in the Rantau Petronas community. later after the wedding, both of us went to Ikea and Pet Safari at Ikano. did some shopping and had a great deal of time at Pet Safari since both of us love pets especially fishes! i think he just got into this after being influenced by me plus he must be envying my serene aquarium and had decided to have one too one day! (i'll post the photo of the aquarium one day when im not too lazy to do it)

also, went to check out the wedding invitation cards at Sunflower (Ikano). set my eye on this one particular card, discussed about the quotation and all but still deciding because i saw more wonderful cards on the web just now. hmm... will decide soon.

and got some new ideas on the decoration of the pelamin. will have to discuss about it with abg zol the wedding planner. and havent searched for the person to make up me nanti on my wedding day. i do have some names but im not sure of how good they are. maybe one of these days i will have to go make up testing first and see how.

time flies really fast i wish i have more days.

.she says she's starving.

just came back from class, starving to death. there seems to be many edible stuffs in the fridge but nothing is tempted to me as for the time being. plain rice and tom yam will do though but really have to be strict this time. i need to lose weight. the same issue again and again but no changes with my weight at all. duhh!!

really. this time. i only have four months to go.

p/s: once i tried really hard not to eat rice for a week and i ended up havin really bad fever. coincidence? i dont think so- demam rindukan nasi =)

.more time needed.

i have always loved long distance driving so i wouldnt mind doing the driving back and forth Dungun-KL. but last nite's trip was really exhausting that i slept right away once reached home and woke up quite late this morning. lucky class is at 4.30PM today and i still have plenty of time to clean up the house and prepare teaching materials.

talking about work, the responsiblities are gained more each day. some of us in Language Centre are being assigned to do the question papers for the mid-semester and final examinations for UiTM. did that last semester and some people at the campus are enquiring why we have to do it again this semester and what actually happens to the question bank? there should be a lot of sets as not only us in Dungun campus were preparing the question papers but also those from other campuses in Malaysia. some says they have used it for the inter-session final exam and some says that we are chosen because we did it as according to the right exam format. well, i really have no idea about this. all i know is that im happy with such assignment as this helps me to gain more knowledge and new experiences. after all, very much to my surprise, some of my questions did came out in the final examination paper last semester. and others from Dungun too.. their questions did came out in the final exam papers last semester.

despite all the complaints and whines, we are still doing it again this semester as it is part of our duty and plus, this helps for the SKT!! really. and as for me, i really think at least we should be told earlier and given more time for this because most of those who have to do this are also part time students who have to travel every weekend to KL to study, doing assignments, prepare lesson plans and havin other responsibilites at workplace.

so, Ikram and I will be preparing the listening paper for the final exam. we already did this together last semester and all went well. hopefully this time it will be even better. really need to find good and reliable materials.

and hoping that there'll be no PKA meeting this week.

.their bundle of joy.


my best friend since primary school Aleya and her husband, Sahak received their bundle of joy two days ago at 1145. baby boy Rayyan Bin Ishaq Hakim weighs 2.68kg.

Congratulations Aleya and Sahak!!





.last weekend in KL.

classes at UKM started last week. at first i thought of taking only 2 subjects (academic writing II & research methodology II) for this semester as i need more time to focus on my work and wedding preps- this is deeply considered since i believe that i am a very slow learner. however, after attending Dr. Juriah's class of Applied Linguistics, i fell in love right away. so now i guess i'll be taking 3 subjects and should be concerned of time management as well. insyaAllah i can do this.

anyway, had a blast accompanying Pijat shopping at I Setan last weekend. she really did her shopping this time and it was a whole lot of fun. the sale has started and we went crazy but she went crazier as she had the cash!! damn, i envied you girl!! but then, she also bought me Mooks's handbag which was on sale! love it love it. tengssssss.

and i bought a pair of Timberland sneakers for him which was on sale too. could see the excitement on his face when i gave him the shoebox. i knew he'd love it. i am never wrong about his stuffs. we happen to know each other well in the fashion sense and maybe music too. and i also bought a very nice classical look of black and white top for myself. not able to post the photo of it because i just dumped it in the washing machine. it was on a 70% sale so could not help but spending the not-so-much money in my purse. dont blame me, it was way too cheap to not buy it plus pijat also said it's okay to spend for that. haha (laughing the evil laugh)

watched Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen again yesterday. it was not a well planned thingy to go watch it again. Abg Yee and his family from KT were on their way to Kuantan to watch the movie when he called asking me to come along in order to assist his wife with their two little boys and since i had nothing much to do at home, i decided to follow them.

because we departed quite late from Dungun, i asked encikluzd to buy the tix for 7.55PM. as soon as we arrived, we met him at Megamall and all of us had early dinner at KFC. it was fun seeing him getting along very well with my cousins. they really like him.

i am currently watching Michael Jackson memorial service on 8TV. and it is really a distraction to write because Stevie Wonder's tribute is so-making-me-speechless. i cant think of any suitable word to describe it. this event is amazing.

i cant write. im going to watch the show. i have always loved MJ. i dont want to miss this.

.where there is love, i'll be there.

it is very sad to lose someone so special like him whom had touched so many hearts all over the world.

we miss you.



MJ, you're always and forever in my heart.

p/s: watching Michael Jackson memorial service, the last tribute, is really heart breaking.

.curiosity.



is it true that Megan Fox is a man?

check this out --> MEGAN FOX IS A MAN!

.Dear Dana.



Count all her toes
and kiss her sweet cheeks
love and cherish her
for she is unique

Congratulations on your baby girl Dana!!

p/s: cant wait to meet her =)

.no title for this one.

well, the semester is about to begin soon. i dont know exactly how i feel. some things are not happening as i thought they would be especially the part where i thought i'd get a job in Kuantan.
deeply frustrated but i guess this is where i should be at the moment (or maybe forever?). i'll keep on trying but as for now, i need to focus on both - my current job and my life as a student.oh, not to forget, my wedding this November.

hmm... i had prepared some teaching materials to be used for this comin' semester and looking forward to make improvements in various aspects like time management, class management, teaching materials, relationships with working colleagues and more. and as a student, i really have to improve a lot more this comin semester. had made the payment for the tuition fees and currently still thinking about the classes that i am about to enroll. i dont want to repeat the mistakes i did last semester so i have to be really sure of my ability this time.

as for my wedding preparations, things are all handled quite okay up to this day. i am rather busy decorating the door gifts and listing the guests. also, planning to buy his ring some time in August or September depending on my financial status =)
and some more stuffs for the hantaran. during my discussion with his mom last weekend, she said it's gonna be 9 'dulang'. and obviously this means that i have to give him 11 'dulang' rite?
(supposedly he and i had decided on 7-9)

anyway, my life has been wonderful these couple of weeks despite the ups and downs.
overall, im enjoyin the days and nights that are passing by.

.finally.



finally, it happened last weekend.
it was worth waiting.
thank you, love.

p/s: no reviews. i dont think you need one.

.Happy 20th Birthday lil' sister.




You are my guiding star
You are my shining light
You are my everything
what helps me through the night.
You are my heart
You are my soul
You are my savoir
what makes me feel whole.
You are more than my sister
You are my best friend
You are the one that will be there
when my heart needs to mend.
I love you sister
more than you will ever know
You are my other half
with you i am whole

.the dream guy that never existed.

the other day he hurt my feelings. badly.
and made me realized that in my case,
it is impossible to find my dream guy. ever.
i guess most guys are just the same. MOST. not all.
at the end of the day, a guy friend finally told me, 'most guys are like that'.
well, what more can i say.
cured the pain caused and face the fact.
