My Jojo & The LuSuka WaSuka Band - what a weekend!!!

Ok, first of all, it was kinda frustrating & depressing to find out that my fiance can't leave Jakarta due to the fact that his re-entry permit has expired on the 4th of April 2011!! Argghh... Everything was ready, he was already at the airport waiting to board the plane but while he was at the Immigration section, they held him & informed him that he can't leave the country due to his permit!! WTF!!!! Apparently his Consultant did not inform him about the expiry as that is supposed to be their job! What a douche bag!!! Idiot!! I was really mad & furious as everything was planned for the weekend + I even got my leave on Monday approved by my boss! Sigghhhh..... Everything happened for a reason I guess.... Adalah tu hikmah Allah kan?

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

Here are some of the photos taken :

Diamonds are a girl's best friend :D

My last weekend was great as I got a diamond ring solitaire from my fiance!! weeeeee... TQ syg!! But that could only be used in like approx. 9 mths from now....siigghhh... I was like admiring the ring a gazillion times & I never knew that diamonds could be sooo beautiful coz am not really a diamond freak nor am a person dat goes to these kedai2 emas like habib or pohkong or wah chan for that matter. As I was perusing through & admiring these gold/diamond rings, I felt interested in wanting to know more, hence, now i know y they say, diamonds are a girl's bestfriend!!! :D
The main reason we were there was to collect my brother's and his fiance's ring and at the same time, to source out my wedding ring. Instead, my mom & my aunty each got themselves a diamond ring too!!! hahahaha... My mom was kinda like 'pujuk-ing' my dad on this white gold sapphire diamond ring for their wedding anniversary (which was on 7th April). And of course, my dad obliged (what choice has he got)... hehehehe... We were thankful as we got it at a fairly GOOD price, thanks to my Maklong who knows the Branch Manager there for years!! In the end, we all came out feeling glee & gay & wonderful!! Weeeeeeee... p/s : next trip is to bring my fiance & get his ring there ( and also, gonna pujuk him to get me either the sapphire ring or a tennis bracelet ) hehehehe... :P

Cheerful & Fruitful Day

Today I was at Kiwanis, PJ for a TV9 program shooting called 'Stanza'. I was there with 2 of my colleagues. The main highlight is actually my colleague who was Ms. Malaysia International. The 2 of us were just the 'extra actors' to add some spice in the TV show.. hahahah... We visited the Down Syndrome kids while they were in their class with their teachers. We were observing & distributing chocolates to them & their teachers. 1 particular boy caught my eye as his teacher were trying to feed him but he just refused to eat! And at 1 point,he was forced to open his mouth in order to feed him but the boy threw the whole thing out! The teacher really need a lot of patient when dealing with these special kids. On my part, I suddenly felt a bit remorseful & thankful that I was born physically complete, healthy & fit. :) Alhamdulillah..... We visited 3 classes today & these children are actually a happy- go- lucky fellas! They sing, they dance & they even know how to give you a hand shake & flying kiss !!! :D This program will be aired some time in May, on Tuesday night @ 9.30pm. The exact date has yet to be confirmed!

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.



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

After a month.....

It's been awhile since I wrote in here... heheheh... been to busy + I have no mood to even write!!! :D a lot has happened & too many to even remember... My fiance was here these past few days... n went back to Jkt today... :( oh well, we're getting used to it already... I guess the saying " absence makes d heart grows fonder" is applicable to both of us. We tend to appreciate each other even more when we're apart! Altho at first it was difficult to part from him, after awhile, we got the hang of it already! Of course we missed each others company, but we managed. :D After this, Insya Allah, in approx. 10 mths time, we'll be married & I'll be with him in Jkt. Yippeeee!!! New life, new environment, new friends ...... new adjustments all together.... :) but in the meantime, this is how it's gonna be... skype every nite ( well, almost!) BBM-ing each other every day & night & face-booking! TQ to technology, we could easily be in touch nowadays!

Apart from that, I'm starting to lose the passion @ work!! siigghhhh... dunno how long I can or will last! boley naik gila!! This is stressing me out & draining me out unnecessarily...sigghhh... And am not the only one feeling this way, even the rest of the employees & our senior managers felt the same way too.... Well, I have to bear & sabar with it at least till end of the year before my wedding.. & after that I guess it's Goodbye ...

I hope I won't look like this by the end of the year! :))
