The next day I was at Sunway Hotel with my boss & colleague. We went & distributed flyers at the parking lot of the hotel! It is part of our marketing strategy to attract the people for our upcoming event. That's why sometimes I love my job! It's tiring but it's fun! Even though the weather was soooo freaking hot that day!! I was actually sweating from head to toe.. gosh!! After work is done, boss treated us for some nice makan2 & minum2 at Sunway.. :D And my colleague & I went window shopping after that.. hehehe...
At night, I was out again, with my girlfriends.. i.e the Divas! We went dancing @ Zeta Bar. I love to hear the band playing.. they were really awesome especially the main male vocalist, whom to me looked like the younger version of Lionel Richie.. He is extremely tall, I think he is about 6ft 7' maybe??
Currenly am @ my parent's crib in S.A. Just relaxing & chilling with them & also with mom's new cat called Kuntum aka Tum Tum.. hahaha.. she's just soo adorable & manja...
I hope it will be another good week... :)

Anyhow, last nite was a blast as we watched our band LuSuka WaSuka (LSWS in short) performed in front of the public @ Patio 21, USJ 21, for the 1st time!! It was a get together for all ex-MRSMs, I think. Sume dah bapak2 org. My fiance was supposed to be singing with them but since he's stuck in Jakarta, he can't be there with them...So they were left with only 1 singer. However, their performance was great, for a first timer band to perform in front of the public! Kudos to them.. I guess the every Friday nite & weekend jamming sessions @ BBB Hartamas, Powerhouse, & Uptown Studio paid off! although there was some minor hiccups... that's normal.. :D

On a different note, here is something to share that I got in my email from a friend :
This is amazing, Randy Pausch 47 yrs old, A computer Sc. lecturer from Mellon University. He died of pancreatic cancer in 2008,but wrote a book ‘The last lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind…
In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan , and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow.
May you be blessed by his insight.
POINTS ON HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE
1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
3. Don't over do; keep your limits
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
15. Call your family often
16. Each day give something good to others
17. Forgive everyone for everything
18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
19. Try to make at least three people smile each day
20. What other people think of you is none of your business
21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.
22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.
23. GOD heals everything
24. Do the right things
25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change
26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
27. The best is yet to come
28. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful
29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it
30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy.
While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with, people you play with, people you work with and people you live with.
Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you.
Remember: GOOD THINGS ARE FOR US TO SHARE.....!!!!!!
Have a great day!! Xoxo... :D

PERCAYA kepada malaikat adalah antara rukun iman . Ada malaikat yang ditugaskan berdoa kepada makhluk manusia dan sudah tentu seseorang yang didoakan malaikat mendapat keistimewaan. Dalam hidup, kita sangat memerlukan bantuan rohani dalam menghadapi ujian yang kian mencabar. Bantuan dan sokongan malaikat sangat diperlukan.Kali ini penulis ingin menyenaraikan antara jenis manusia yang akan menerima doa malaikat. Ketika itulah sewaktu kita menghadapi masalah, kerumitan, keperluan dan bimbingan, bukan saja kita perlukan kekuatan doa dari lidah, tetapi juga sokongan malaikat.
Antara orang yang mendapat doa malaikat ialah:
1. Orang yang tidur dalam keadaan bersuci.
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Sesiapa yang tidur dalam keadaan suci, malaikat akan bersamanya di dalam pakaiannya. Dia tidak akan bangun hingga malaikat berdoa: "Ya Allah, ampunilah hamba-Mu si fulan kerana tidur dalam keadaan suci."
2. Orang yang sedang duduk menunggu waktu solat.
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda maksudnya: "Tidaklah salah seorang antara kalian yang duduk menunggu solat, selama ia berada dalam keadaan suci, kecuali kalangan malaikat akan mendoakannya: 'Ya Allah, ampunilah ia. Ya Allah sayangilah ia.'"
3. Orang yang berada di saf depan solat berjemaah.
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Sesungguhnya Allah dan kalangan malaikat-Nya berselawat ke atas (orang) yang berada pada saf depan."
4. Orang yang menyambung saf pada solat berjemaah (tidak membiarkan kekosongan di dalam saf).
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Sesungguhnya Allah dan kalangan malaikat selalu berselawat kepada orang yang menyambung saf."
5. Kalangan malaikat mengucapkan 'amin' ketika seorang imam selesai membaca al-Fatihah.
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda maksudnya: "Jika seorang imam membaca...(ayat terakhir al-Fatihah sehingga selesai), ucapkanlah oleh kamu 'aamiin' kerana sesiapa yang ucapannya itu bertepatan dengan ucapan malaikat, dia akan diampuni dosanya yang lalu."
6. Orang yang duduk di tempat solatnya selepas melakukan solat.
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Kalangan malaikat akan selalu berselawat kepada satu antara kalian selama ia ada di dalam tempat solat, dimana ia melakukan solat."
7. Orang yang melakukan solat Subuh dan Asar secara berjemaah.
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda maksudnya: "Kalangan malaikat berkumpul pada saat solat Subuh lalu malaikat (yang menyertai hamba) pada malam hari (yang sudah bertugas malam hari hingga Subuh) naik (ke langit) dan malaikat pada siang hari tetap tinggal.
"Kemudian mereka berkumpul lagi pada waktu solat Asar dan malaikat yang ditugaskan pada siang hari (hingga solat Asar) naik (ke langit) sedangkan malaikat yang bertugas pada malam hari tetap tinggal lalu Allah bertanya kepada mereka: "Bagai mana kalian meninggalkan hamba-Ku?"
Mereka menjawab: 'Kami datang sedangkan mereka sedang melakukan solat dan kami tinggalkan mereka sedangkan mereka sedang melakukan solat, ampunilah mereka pada hari kiamat.'"
9. Orang yang membelanjakan harta (infak).
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Tidak satu hari pun di mana pagi harinya seorang hamba ada padanya kecuali dua malaikat turun kepadanya, satu antara kedua-duanya berkata: 'Ya Allah, berikanlah ganti bagi orang yang berinfak...' "
10. Orang yang sedang makan sahur.
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda maksudnya: "Sesungguhnya Allah dan kalangan malaikat-Nya berselawat kepada orang yang sedang makan sahur."
11. Orang yang sedang menjenguk (melawat) orang sakit.
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Tidaklah seorang mukmin menjenguk saudaranya kecuali Allah akan mengutus 70,000 malaikat untuknya yang akan berselawat kepadanya di waktu siang hingga petang dan di waktu malam hingga Subuh."

Wow! it's been awhile since I wrote in here.. Lots of things had happened these past few days!!!
1st-ly, had a fight with my mom last weekend due to some communication breakdown! We both din't talk to each other for like the whole day!!!. I got stressed out & went out to the Salon & had a hair wash n massage & off to Subang Parade after that just to 'cuci mata' & 'window shopping whilst having Baskin Robbins ice-cream!!! yummy... Whenever I'm in a mall, I feel so relaxed & gay!! That's one of my so-called therapy for releasing stress!!! :D Anyhow, come night time, my mom & I had a talk & we both kissed , hugged & I said sorry to her for the way I reacted!! Whatever it is, syurga dibawah tapak kaki ibu. I love her so dearly.. she's the best mom ever!!!! I know she's just so stressed out in preparing my brother's wedding this coming June/July. After that it'll be the prep of my wedding pulak..Loads to plan...
2nd-ly, had an emotional breakdown with my fiance the next day.. It turned out that I'm having my menses! hahahaha... I got so uptight & emotional all at the same time... I dint realize that my menses came slightly early this mth! We've discussed about our wedding day & what to do after we got married! We've decided that I would still be working in KL after married & once we've settled down financially, then I'd move to Jakarta & stay there. I make it a point to travel back & forth Jakarta frequently & vice versa.. After all, there's Air Asia, MAS & KLM. And it's only 2- hour flight. Well, that's the plan, for now..
3rd-ly, as usual at the office, got a bit stressed out on work + my boss!! arrgghhhh... as always la kan... although he had mellowed down a lot lately, he can still give the stress to us!!! *&^$%#&..
There are at 1 point, I feel like am losing passion on work already coz apparently the business has deviated than what we were doing when I first came in! I'm starting to lose interest already... gosh!!! At times, I don't look forward going to work anymore. Helppp!!!!!
What do I do??? :(
4th-ly, am actually getting a bit uptight, sensitive & emotional all at once!! I suddenly get 'terasa' very easily when some 'not-so-nice words' came out from whoever's mouth altho I know it meant to be a joke!!! Are my hormones imbalanced?? Or age is catching up??? Or again, it all comes back to my PMS mode!!!??? Rasa macam 'jiwa kacau'. :(( This is the time where I would isolate myself from others & just wanna be alone! And that's exactly what I'm doing at the moment........

Wednesday is a day of the week in the Gregorian calendar. According to international standard ISO 8601, it is the third day of the week. This day is between Tuesday and Thursday. The name is derived from Old English Wōdnesdæg and Middle English Wednesdei, ultimately a calque of dies Mercurii "day of Mercury"
Wednesday is in the middle of the common Western 5-day workweek that starts on Monday and finishes on Friday. Also, when Sunday is taken as the first of every week, Wednesday is the day in the middle.
Anyway, this morning I got up quite early than usual. Each time I get up for Solat Subuh, for sure akan tido balik lah, at least until 8am-ish. :P But today, I managed to stay up to watch "Tanyalah Ustaz" at 7 am on TV9! The topic was 'Jgn Mengeluh'. Ustaz Kazim Elias was the speaker. I really admire him & love to hear his ceramah on YouTube! He was explaining that jika kita ditimpa musibah, jgn mengeluh. Instead selalu2 lah mintak doa dgn Allah & bersyukur kerana musibah yg diturunkan Allah kepada kita is to 'cuci' dosa2 kita yg lalu & also Allah will give us something much better later on. :) Cuma we have to bersabarlah apabila ditimpa musibah. Musibah yang berlaku ketika di dunia ada orang akan tolong for eg : Families, friends & etc.. Tapi musibah di dalam alam kubur, tiada siapa dapat tolong kita, i.e we will be alone in it, scary huh??
Those are some of the ceramah given by Ustaz Kazim which I could remember by heart. It's easier said than done kan? It made me realized that when bad things happen to me, I would sometimes show my tantrum & naik angin tak tentu pasal! It's as tho it's the end of everything-lah! But when I came back to my senses & cooled down a bit, I try (very hard) to think of it that ada hikmah disebaliknya & kept pondering on what have I done to deserve this musibah? Dugaan, Dugaan... I try to take it on the positive side lah.. Furthermore, ade org lagi susah dari kita & that keeps me going forward lah.
Ustaz Kazim also mentioned about Surah Ibrahim ayat 40 & Surah As-Syuraa' ayat 19. ( refer to the Tafsiran Quran for the meaning)
Surah As-Syuraa' ayat 19 : Isteri baca ke atas ubun2 suami semasa dia sedang tido sebanyak 19 kali supaya suami lembut hati.
Surah Ibrahim ayat 40 : Ibubapa baca utk anak2 supaya rajin solat.
Apparently musibah berlaku ke atas setiap hamba Allah either musibah dgn suami, isteri, anak2, parents, parents-in-law, diri sendiri & etc... even God gave us wealth & health BUT if we takbur & tak solat/berdoa to Allah,anytime DIA boley tarik balik kesemua nikmat itu. It's a reminder to oneself.
Just to share some ilmu, moga2 mendpt. keberkatan & keredhaan.., Insya Allah.... correct me if am wrong :)
And now am wondering how do I get through IF there is a Dugaan for me when I become a Wife? Am I strong enough to face all the challenges?? M just pondering....

On Sunday had a makan2 session @ my aunty's place in Melawati. The usual family gathering we have lah! Funny thing happened to my Maklong. She accidentally drank vinegar!!! Well, she was feeling very thirsty & opened the fridge to look for cold water. Then she saw a transparent bottle & quickly opened it & gulping it down the throat & only to realize that it is NOT water but vinegar instead! She quickly spit out whatever there is left in her throat!! Hahahahahahah.... We all had a good laugh!! Actually, I have the same perangai like her.. Always dash into things without thinking & it gets us in trouble sometimes! hahahah... I guess since the both of us are Kaklongs, so there's the similarity there... ;)
Today's Monday & am on leave!! yahooo... Got the chance to watch the Academy Awards LIVE from Kodak Theatre, LA!! Franco & Hathaway was ok lah to host the show, maybe because they r still young, still need a lot of improvement... but they make a good couple on stage tho.. :D
I can't wait to watch most of the movies shown at the Oscars!

brisk-walking & etc... (well, that was 5 yrs ago!!).. Now my routine is just go to work, come home, which is usually late at night, watch tv & sleep.. Weekend is the time where i rest & recuperate.... & once in a while I would do some spring cleaning... dah jadi malas to go jogging or even work-out nowadays! So, I hope after today, it is an eye-opener for me... :( I just need some motivation now!! :P

It's Friday & the weekend is here!! Yipppeee...
Anyway, last nite we've celebrated my sister's 26th b'day by having dinner at this Seafood Restaurant in Kg. Subang...( I can't remember the name). It is situated right in front of the Airod & TUDM Subang's runway.. The food was somewhat scrumptious!!! We had Ketam Telur Masin, Kepah, Oyster, Garupa sweet sour fish, Baby Kailan Oyster Sauce & Baskin Robbin's Ice Cream Cake for dessert!! Yummy.....
After dinner, we took a stroll at the aquarium & was mesmerized by the types of aqua living creatures... Of course they have the lobsters, crabs, moray eels, all kinds of fish, abalones, escargo and etc.. 1 type of sea living creature actually caught my attention; it's called the 'GEO-DUCK'. I have never heard of it nor have ever seen this sea creature before. It's longish & have the similarity of a sea cucumber, only thing it's white in color & with clam. My sister & I were already giggling as it looks like Men's Dick!! hahahahahahaahaha....( dirty-minded we are sometimes, but look at the picture & you would agree with me, kan?) :D Then we found out thru my friend that this GEO-DUCK is a species of LARGE saltwater clam.. ahhh..so desu ne..that explains the clam-like features there... heheheh...
Well, you learn something new everyday, hey?? :D

That reminds me of my boss. He would say," You must finished what you've started! Never leave things half way.. It's like baking a cake." Oh well, it's up to us to listen rite? hahahahha.. But he has a point there tho, despite all his sometimes-annoying- 'sermons' & 'nagging' towards us. Hehehehehe... Ok enuff said about him....
By the way, this year is the year where wedding bells are actively 'ringing' in my family. My younger brother will be getting hitched this mid June/July. Yep! I repeat my YOUNGER Brother... I dunno how am I gonna cope coz by that time I've just finished my bi-annual charity event on 11th June & at the same time I have my good friend's wedding to attend and also to partially be involved in helping out on my bro's wedding.. And approx. 6 mths after that, it's gonna My Big Day...insya allah... Arrgghhh!!! I can foresee the stress!!!
And I have yet to decide what to do after being married ( I know my fiance is gonna kill me reading this)... I haven't told my boss about it whether should i resign & follow my hubby to live in Jkt OR would he allow me to take sabbatical leave & when am back I'd still have a job??... siiiighhhh... I guess sooner or later I have to decide, kan?? I'm still indecisive!! ... and the clock is ticking!... tick tock, tick tock...!!
Ok, I think that's all for now as my introduction... Will write more when am Free or doing nothing (+ when am in the MOOD to do so.. )
