2 months and counting

No, I am not pregnant if thats what you think when you read the title.
At least not yet. *hehehe*

Yesterday marked the 2 months for us, to be in this holy knot, lifetime commitment between me and booTak.
Boo hoo, no fancy celebration what not, instead we were at klcc * i was forced to wait at klcc for him as he worked late yesterday*, had dinner at foodcourt (did I tell you the ikan bakar + sotong with spicy sauce is damn good there) and while waiting for the food to arrive, we played game

Oh well not really a game la, more like sticker game kind of thing.

I was at eclipse yesterday trying to kill time but unfortunately I killed my wallet too when I was there browsing for the latest collection. Cant blame me though, the 50% tag really played its role in persuasive action. HEBAT!

Anyway, before I move further can I just tell you that eclipse store at klcc has the best customer service personnel! EVER! there were very nice, the both of them and very friendly. and they were selling this charity sticker by World Vision (i think thats also part of the paperdoll project to raise money for children in africa)

"Sayang, beli la sticker, 10 ringgit je, boleh tolong kanak2, kesian diorang"

"Tapi kalau beli 2 15 ringgit je"

Oh well, how can I say no to anything relates to charity. They showed me that the sticker that I bought are for helping the kids to get water. Ahhhhhh, makes me feel like buying more sticker then.

In the end, I did pay for the sticker and the both of them were really happy as if I bought something that they sell personally and they gain profit out of it. Sincerity really shows its face yesterday for the both of them and I felt warm

So, back to the earlier story, while waiting, we stick the stickers onto the main board and we had fun. Really, I tell you sometimes the small small stuff that you do together with your significant others really makes your realtionship feels warm and the laugh that we had when I stick the sticker perigi floating on the air was genuine

Maybe you should try too, if lazy to buy sticker just play fruit ninja or play Amazing Race games on iPad.


ketap bibir like kanak kanak je

can you see the floating perigi? *kekekekkee*

booTak decided to be gila kuasa and stick them all. no laaahhh kidding...

So far, no doubt marriage really needs effort from both parties, and adjusting may need time but I am grateful to have him as my husband because seriously who can really take my crap anyway? hehehe

Love you booTak! *i doubt you are reading this. lagi menarik kot. hehehehe

So my inai dah nak habis.
That marks the end of my bride moment...
I have to admit
I miss being a bride
I dont miss the prep time, I certainly miss the wedding day itself
Its so nice when people attended to your needs by any means...eventhough sometimes it did sound unreasonable

But now,
Back to reality...
*slaps forehead*

p/s: I just realised I have yet to write about my wedding day. hhahahaha....

[Review]: Ombak Rindu

The phenomena of Ombak Rindu (OR) is amazingly crazy. It has been the talk of the town since its opening night and remain as such ever since. If we look at it from a positive point of view, this is truly an achievement to Malay Film industry as it is not easy to attract audience nowadays. Unless you have some cheap gimmick from your movie and list of ‘beautiful and handsome’ cast in it, your movie will highly unlike to become hit and blockbuster rated

Nonetheless, OR also has these element. Albeit the director gave his assurance that he does not sell cheap sex scene in the movie, you have to admit the thoughts of Aaron Aziz and Maya Karin performing sex scene surely is inviting to some crowd. Let's be honest, we always love some provocative elements in our lives and this is one of it.

When I heard about the phenomena created by this movie, I told myself I have to validate its accuracy. So we did, and we weren’t happy with the outcome.

The movie surely missed one important element in a good film. Climax! Ombak Rindu doesn’t have a pinnacle in it. True, everybody love happy ending but it has to have content, meaning to it. Not just sipping tropical drinks and eating fruits on yacht and sailing to a happy ending. Yesterday I read one review on OR written by one critics that is specializing in literature, and I totally agree with his point of view. Nur Izzah (Maya Karin) did not win anything in this battle. She didn’t manage to bring Hariz (Aaron Aziz) into Islam and embracing it. Her battle is purely to ensure that Hariz is hers, but whether or not the marriage is going to be great one, we don’t know.

There are too many typical local film scenes in this movie. I don’t understand the need of showing a night club scene in this movie. I understand the fact the she was sold to become a prostitute by her uncle Pakcik Taha, but seriously does prostitution really takes place in night club? Shouldn’t the scene takes place at one dodgy area (looking at peanut payment received by his uncle for selling her)? I seriously don’t understand why night club scene is a must in a Malay movie.

Another typical scene or more to character is Datuk Suffiah (Azizah Mahzan), Hariz’s mother. What is up with the slang? I happened to know a lot of Datins Datins and they surely don’t talk like one. That surely gave a wrong impression of the Datins community and I don’t think they like it.

When it comes to improvement in acting, I have to give it to Maya Karin. She surely did improved and I believe her sadness in this movie. The character itself is not those typical ‘wanita malang dan teraniaya’ and hoping that one day the truth will reveal itself. Im glad the director did not visualize her as such.

source [Google]

But Lisa Surihani (as Mila), is a total disappointment. I don’t really like her acting nowadays, she overdone it in certain ways. I like her better in Lagenda Budak Setan. I don’t really understand the needs of screaming and jegil mata all the time. No no for me

Aaron Aziz? Hurm, don’t know what to comment. I don’t fancy him neither his acting. I don’t really like those typical romantic guy bla bla bla character that he played in Nora Elena (but who am I to comment, I only watch one episode), but he was the total opposite in this movie. In terms of how he managed to convinced me in his emotion in this movie, probably in some scene. That’s all.

Ouh ya another thing, Bront Palarae wasted his talent in this movie. He is an awesome actor and he did not give any impact to this movie. The movie will still sell if it’s someone else.

What else, hurm none I guess. I better stop here before people hate me for this comment. Hahahahaha

Last Saturday was a hectic day for me, attended mini convo for my Shariah Law certificate in the morning, had a power nap; the two of us in the car at parking lot KLCC for one solid hour, had lunch and we ran to KL Convention Centre to watch the much anticipated event for the year

STOMP' 11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally, I had the chance to score good seats for the show, much thanks to booTak for sponsoring :)

Erm, I dont think stomp need any introduction, eventhough I had it explained briefly in my previous post. All I can say is its freaking awesome and I dont mind killing good bucks in my wallet *cough* hubby's wallet *cough* for it

Off we go to Door 2 to enter and we ran into Nanayau and siapa lagi, BF nyer lah....

Bergambar seketika

To sum the show up, I like all parts of it. Be it the broom session, the sink session, the paper session and so on...

But my favourite one was this....

ZOMG! mcm terbang ok

and this one. this part was super awesome. I saw the front row there were 2 kids were enjoying themselves kengkonon mcm tgh bergendang jugak. SOOOO CUTEEEE!!!!

who said brooms cannot be entertaining meh?

They really managed to get the crowd cheering non stop, even for us to clap. They really got us involved, I like the part where they made us imitate what they did...super cute...

Its funky, and it has beats and even kids likes it. Im sure one day once we have our kid we will definitely bring them to this show. (if datang KL lagi la kan...)

STOMP, sila datang lagi ye.....

Selamanya, selamanya, selamanya Harimau Malaya

We did it,
Harimau Muda!
Terima kasih kerana mengembalikan kegemilangan bola sepak malaysia. It was a very very good fight. 120mins on the field with limited recovery time after their match in semi were really challenging, but they made it
Despite tonnes of obstacles encountered prior the match, boo-ed by the spectators, Negaraku was not respected by them, our Jalur Gemilang burned by the Indonesians, alhamdulillah...Allah itu maha Kaya. Allah hanya menguji hambaNya yang mampu dan tabah mengatasinya

Harimau muda was under the great pressure during last night event, nonetheless they made through. I think i better stop giving such an obvious comment like Zainal Abidin...

TV Host: Apa pendapat abang zainal dan expectation abang zainal untuk separuh masa kedua ini dari aspek permainan?

Zainal: "Saya rasa team Harimau Muda akan bermain dengan lebih baik lagi dan lebih bersungguh- sungguh"

Duhhhhh...itu makcik milah pun leh comment kot

I watched this with my hubby and MIL last night, and the house filled with me screaming and shouting most of the time

"Aduhhh, FAKRI ni apsal ni?"
"Indon play act siot"
"Bodoh punya ref, bias ar"

Three common statements made by the three of us. I cant say the same for MIL, she did not say bodoh and all hahahahha its just me and hubby. Luckily mama werent shocked with it...

apa punya menantu daaaa...

Anyway, FAKRI was the contributing factor of my high blood pressure last night. For a moment, I googled his roots to know whether or not he has indonesian blood. Just in case...

The second factor was the rude and uncivilised Indonesian fans. Negaraku did not get the proper respect as it should. I agree, we pretty much did the same for Singapore National Anthem during the last World Cup qualifying but it wasnt that bad. At least we did not boo the anthem and there was no middle finger action showing up on the TV screen. How embarassing...

We ended up winning with penalty, even under such circumstances our Harimau Muda perseverence deserve a big fat thumbs up.

Congrats Harimau Muda. Walaupun KFCM kaki clubbing, takpelah!!! He's too good for us to bother about his sucky love life. hahahhaaha

Despite the bad treatments received by our players, our condolences to the family of 2 indonesians whom their lives ended during the match, after massive stampade happened at Section 15 of Gelora Bung Karno Stadium. The total turnout for yesterday's match was close to 100k, I believe bigger than what the stadium's capacity.

Semoga kejadian begini tidak akan berlaku di negara kita yang aman damai ini. Tanah tumpahnya darahku

Heartpumping shows

OMG, how awesome is this. STOMP is coming back to Malaysia and it is happening in Kuala Lumpur. Yeayyyyy!!!!

I missed their performance back in 2006 (or was it 2005). Could not make it that time and I was very very disappointed. When I read about it, excitedly ask booTak about it only to receive this from him...

"STOMP? Apa tu?"

Pfftttt, and he called himself happening guy. Chittt porraaahhh

To you, i mean you people who dont know what STOMP is, STOMP is a performance show with unstoppable energy and toe-tapping exuberance, and takes the clutter and junk of everyday life – bins, Zippo lighters and even the kitchen sink – and transforms it into a pulsating, witty, utterly irresistible theatrical event. Clearly this is the event that you don’t want to miss to see what all the noise is about!

Ticket is now on sale via TicketPro

Price ranging from RM168 to RM308. Since this is a noisy show, better get the middle seat for you not to be drown by the loud beat produced by those equipments

I am so very excited for this. Cant say the same for my husband as he is not all thrilled for it. Hahahaha. Whatever, this is the price that you have to pay for forcing me to watch Alamak Toyol and Abuya. (by the way these 2 movie sucks to the max so dont bother watching it at all. I shall write some review about it soon)

On another related note, I just found out about the Grand Finale of The Challenger MuayThai. Arghhhh and its tomorrow....

Can I get tickets still for this? Who wants to go with me? My treat!

Love her

I found this from Izrin's blog (which I think she found it from her friend's FB, so the credit should go the her friend's fb whom I guess found it from someone else FB and the list go on. Tengs)

Love her …when she sips on your coffee or tea. She only wants to make sure it tastes just right for you.

Love her…when she "pushes" you to pray. She wants to be with you in Jannah.

Love her…when she asks you to play with the kids. She did not "make" them on her own.

Love her...when she is jealous. Out of all the men she can have, she chose you

Love her…when she has annoying little habits that drives you nuts. You have them too.

Love her…when her cooking is bad. She tries.

Love her…when she looks dishevelled in the morning. She always grooms herself up again.

Love her…when she asks to help with the kids homework. She only wants you to be part of the home.

Love her...when she asks if she looks fat. Your opinion counts, so tell her she's beautiful.

Love her…when she looks beautiful. She's yours so appreciate her.

Love her...when she spends hours to get ready. She only wants to look her best for you.

Love her…when she buys you gifts you don't like. Smile and tell her it's what you've always wanted.

Love her…when she has developed a bad habit. You have many more and with wisdom and politeness you have all the time to help her change.

Love her…when she cries for absolutely nothing. Don't ask, tell her its going to be okay

Love her…when she suffers from PMS. Buy chocolate, rub her feet and back and just chat to her

Love her…when whatever you do is not pleasing. It happens and will pass

Love her…when she stains your clothes. You needed a new thobe (kurta) anyway

Love her…when she tells you how to drive. She only wants you to be safe.

Love her…when she argues. She only wants to make things right for both

Love her…she is yours. You don't need any other special reason!!!!

All this forms part of a Woman's Character. Women are part of your life and should be treated as the Queen.

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) advised concerning the woman:

Treat the women well.

This post was written by a man. May Allah bless his marriage life for reminding other men to be what they are supposed to be.

Today is the day,
The day where tonnes of wedding hall were booked years earlier,
The day where all tok kadi are fully booked,

The day where the newbies in the wedding industries get to shine themselves and tell the whole world that "hey, we are here and we are as good as the rest"

Three of my friends are getting married today, 2 are having their solemnization and one friend is getting her marriage registered today...

What a perfect date to get married,

Husband has no excuse to forget the date as it is pretty simple date,
and that is considered awesome.

I dont really have time to blog about our reception at felda on the deepavali day last 2 weeks, but I will do it soon once I receive the official picture from danialhaikal studio. But for now just some teaser...

Till then,

New Journey

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:

A woman may be married for four reasons: for her property, her status. her beauty and her religion, so try to get one who is religious, may your hand be besmeared with dust.

{Chapter 35, Book 8, Number 3457 : Sahih Muslim}

Alhamdulillah, Ive found my match in this man and we sincerely pray and hope for our marriage to last forever...

To all friends who came to our wedding, thank you so very much. It really brought joy to our big day and again, thank you

Special thank you to all vendors who helped me throughout the whole preparation and making it a success.

Holes Inside...

When all that you've tried, leaves nothing but holes inside,
It seems like you're wired, to stay here held in time,
Cos nothing seems to change, oh no.
No nothing's gonna change, at all.
I can see it in your face, the hope has gone astray.

But if you hold tight, shadows will be lost in the light.
Oh cos sometimes, fate and your dreams will collide.
So don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me.

Your feet are stuck, no they cannot move,
Don't tell me that they're glued,
Yeh they're far from.
At home, at ease but give sometime to breathe

When nothing seems to change, oh no.
No nothing's gonna change, at all.
I can see it in your face, the hope has gone away.

But if you hold tight, shadows will be lost in the light.
Oh cos sometimes, fate and your dreams will collide.
So don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me.

But everthing will be ok,
I know that it's so easy to say,
But the pain inside will fade,
Please tell me that you'll stay.

If we hold tight, shadows will be lost in the light.
Oh cos sometimes, fate and your dreams can collide.
So don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me.

When all that you've tried, leaves nothing but holes inside.

R.I.P Steve Jobs

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life,"

"Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important."

- Steve Jobs

The most shocking news to the world this morning is the demise of the co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs. In mid-2004, Jobs announced to his employees that he had been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his pancreas. The prognosis for pancreatic cancer is usually very poor; Jobs, however, stated that he had a rare, far less aggressive type known as islet cell neuroendocrine tumor. After initially resisting the idea of conventional medical intervention and embarking on a special diet to thwart the disease, Jobs underwent a pancreaticoduodenectomy (or "Whipple procedure") in July 2004 that appeared to successfully remove the tumor. Jobs apparently did not require nor receive chemotherapy or radiation therapy (source: wikipedia)

From the reading I did this morning, I can only make one conclusion. Steve Jobs never wanted the whole world to know that he is sick. He never wants sympathy. Instead, he fought hard and always be positive about his health condition. At one of the media event he attended, he ended his keynote address with "110/70" referring to his blood pressure, stating that he would not address any further questions about his health condition.

He reminds me so much of my late father-in-law. Similar characteristics, similar class of acts and similar success stories. Arwah abah may not invented iPhone (he used one actually :), but Abah had his own fair shares of great stories. Recently, KLIFF 2011 Award has listed abah as one of the recipients, "The Most Outstanding Performance in Islamic Finance", Mama and Rizhan accepted the award. Abah did tremendous great work in Islamic Finance, creating Malaysia as the biggest hub for Islamic Finance, allowing banks to grow in Islamic industries and many more that I cant even begin to list down.

My heart goes to his family members. May they gather the strength to pursue life with his absence and always be strong.

RIP Steve Jobs

Life, Marriage and challenges...

"Finding the right man for marriage is the second challenge. The first challenge is to be the right woman that a right man wants to marry."

(Taken from A Girl's Say)

15 days to go...

and yah I am not going to talk about my wedding preparation here. Instead it feels right to talk about the preparation to enter marriage.

booTak asked me a question yesterday, "are you ready to get married?"

You might wonder what was my reaction towards that? Some might think that I might throw a fighting scream

"hey, apa soalan ni?

u ingat I tak ready ke?

Kenapa awak fikir macam ni?

This is just not fair to ask me this now"


I didnt...

The first 4 awkward seconds I was just there, keeping it silent and trying to find the right answer only to realise there is no right answer to this question. Your answer wasnt supposed to please your other half, instead the answer should please you and makes you feel comfortable with it.

My answer "Yes, I am ready"

I know in my heart that I am ready for this.

Often we notice nowadays couples who wants to get married are focusing their energy to get the perfect wedding. What we should be focusing actually is to the journey afterwards, the marriage itself. We have to set a goal, an objective so we know the hurdle that we have to go through in the preparation is actually nothing. Greater things awaits us the moment he finally say his lafaz, accepting his responsibility to be the husband and for you to be his wife.

Ive seen one lavish and super cool wedding, and the couple divorced 6 months later. My first reaction was "aiyak, wasted only money spent on the wedding". I wasnt on the right track as well, that moment I should be thinking how frustrating that such a holly ikatan can be broken after only 6 months.

I realise marriage takes even greater effort and challenges than the wedding itself...and I am ready for that. I've found the right man (insyaAllah), now I just have to be the right woman to be with my right man....

Friends Forever

Do you ever has somebody that fits this...

undeniably trustworthy,
incredibly supportive and understanding
fantastic and fabulous
an incredible and wonderful person

That is a Super Friend award

I know I have one...
But she is flying off to UK tonight to pursue her dreams in modeling *NOT*
Pursuing her Masters actually (I hate scholarship)

I've met Annette my entire life. She has been there with me for 10 years already. First met her during our early year in uniten and we have been best friends ever since. I am annette and annette is me. Literaly....

Even her family is mine already, vice versa.

Even after we graduated we were still glued to each other. We worked at the same place, we stayed in the same house and spend weekends together until we got sick of each others and we decided yah we should get a boyfriend.

But even when the both of us are with someone in our life, that never change the fact that we are still best friends. After I had that traumatic experience in uni when I've realised I should never trust girls, I can still trust her, in fact she was the only one whom I put my trust that moment.

Today she is leaving me, leaving us to pursue her dream and some white dudes. I am so glad she has this opportunity to shine and I am glad she no longer has to work on weekends and sometimes at night.

Babe, if you are reading this, please know that you will always have my heart, my thoughts and my sincere prayer for your happiness and success in the English Land. You have been the best person/friend in my life and I thank you for that. It is sad not to have you around during my big day but I know somehow you are hurt too. The thoughts of not having you around to listen to all my crap is unbearable, but this is all for the best and I wish you the best of luck in your life.

Hit on some white dudes for me if you can (as I can no longer do that pfffttt), pls pls pls do travel, and live life to the fullest. Dont be such a nerd (yah, sitting at the front seat of a class is considered nerd) and pls dont listen to linkin park song's while studying; your roommate may hate you for that. Dont play video games in uni (Return of Castle Wolfenstein whatnot is so not cool) and during your free time dont do jigsaw puzzle in your room. Roomies may think you are weird. Hehhehe *peace*. Kick ass in your study okay, I know you will (cough *nerd* cough) and please do remember me. :)

What else...
Hurm yah!
Please dont bring puncher from malaysia and buy your stationaries at Leeds!

I love you babe...
Thank you for being my best friend

I can only do these kind of pose with her...

SAVE THE DATE: Goodbye Singlehood

Salam & Surpriseeeeee! *NOT*

I guess some of you may have noticed that I'm engaged recently. Thanks to those who uploaded my engagement pictures, now its no longer a surpise event. *boohoo*

So yah, I am regret to inform that I can no longer brag about singlehood but I am happy to announce that by the blessing and will of Allah SWT, I will be marrying the love of my life whom I met with the help of magical power of match-making...! Go cupid!

Sadly, he still thinks wearing dirty sneakers is awesome (he probably would wear those to our wedding *slaps forehead*), but he makes me smile whenever I hear his name mentioned and still manage to give me all sort of butterflies whenever he's around. I wonder how he does that. Pfffttttt!

Okay enough of sappiness, lets get back to business. I'd love for you guys to come and sharing the day with us. Promise you, no cheesy love songs!

So, please Save the Date ~22 October 2011~ for a day of joy, happiness and eternity to follow

Ouh ya, kindly drop me your address for the sending of invitation cards. This message is applicable for those who thinks they wont see me before the wedding date. Whoever that has eye contact with me for the next 40 days ur invi card will be flying to you pretty soon *winks*

Sayu terpisah
Hikayat indah kini hanya tinggal sejarah
Berhembus angin rindu
Begitu nyamannya terhidu wangian kasihmu
Hujan lebat mencurah kini
Bagaikan tiada henti
Kaulah laguku kau irama terindah
Tak lagi kudengari
Kau pergi... pergi...
Sepi tanpa kata
Terdiam dan kaku tak daya kau kulupa
Apa pun kata mereka
Biarkan kenangan berbunga di ranting usia

Hujan lebat mencurah kini
Bagaikan tiada henti
Kaulah laguku kau irama terindah
Tak lagi kudengari
Kau pergi... pergi...

Hujan lebat mencurah kini
Bagaikan tiada henti
Kaulah laguku kau irama terindah
Tak lagi kudengari
Kau pergi... pergi...
Kau pergi... pergi...

Aizat - Pergi

It has been 29 days...

We miss you, really, really miss you...

Changes; inevitably...

Inevitably it will ensue...
No one knows for sure what will the future holds once changes takes place, its all about adapting to it.

Often we know people succumb to changes and let it take affect on their lives. Good way or bad way? It is all depending on how you adapt to it. Again, adapt is the key word here.

I know how tough changes can be to anyone, and I know for sure adapting is strenuous at this point.

You are a tough person, I know you are...
You make me proud of you; everytime I lay my eyes on you and in every single thing that you do...

I pray for these strength to last forever as you are well needed as the leader...
To your family and most certainly to me...
and I pray for Allah to always be by your side to guide you in every decision making in future...

In loving memory of Abah, Al - Fatihah

Before I begin this post, appreciate if readers can recite al-fatihah to Allahyarham Dato' Haji Mohd Razif Abdul Kadir, or Abah as the family called him.

My path with arwah abah crossed officially last year when Rizhan introduced me to him as his girlfriend. Often we know that the first meeting with the future in-law can be rather daunting. Furthermore, the fact that abah was the big boss in the organization that I work with; makes it even harder.

My heart was pounding as I reached Damansara Specialist Hospital that morning. The plan was to go for a lil jogging and walking at TTDI park as abah was warded the day before after he was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I was merely practicing my line :-

"Assalamualaikum uncle, my name is Suhana. How are you? how are you feeling today?"

Keep on mumbling the above sentences, I think I repeated those for more than 20 times

When he arrived, shook his hand and the first thing that came out was: -

"Good morning Dato' "

pfffttttt. So much of practising I have to say. Rizhan and Rushdi were laughing out loud while arwah abah smiled at me and replied "ooo good morning nana"

I was embarassed. Little that I know he already knew my shortnames. He shook my hand with a gesture of acceptance and his smile ease all the anxiety.

After the jogging session, I suggested for a breakfast at some kopitiam. He said, "eh no need, we breakfast at the hospital room, theres so many food. We can share the nasi lemak"

Thank you Allah, thats what I praised that morning when I realised how friendly and accepting he was towards me. Being the DG, he asked about my supervision work and asked me how well I am coping with the working environment.

His second question was "so, how many overseas inspection have you been"

Yeiks, I was stunned. Maybe overseas inspection is the benchmark of how succesful you are as a supervisor. "ermmm, none so far uncle"

"Its okay, the opportunity will come. It is a very good exposure for you, once its there must make sure you utilise it"

From that moment I realised my journey with this family is going to be a smooth ride. Coupled with the fact that Mama is always nice to me, I told myself this is the place to be. I have found the one.

During the period where he was fighting the cancer, he never failed to show high spirit and always objective and positive in the outcome. He never show any sign of pain in front of us, always smile and always cheerful.

After i was registered as his BBM friends, abah always bbm me. Behind rizhan's back he always asked me on our plan to get married to a point where sometimes I feel scared if I received his bbm text. His favourite line

"you must push rizhan to make that call. Only you can do it, we have tried on your behalf but boy he is a stubborn child"

"Uncle nak nana asked him the question, asked him where is he going with you in this relationship. I dont want my son to keep on bringing you here and there with no ikatan. I am equally guilty"

Not just the above, abah once bbm me "Good luck on your marathon. Uncle doakan a good race for you". Rizhan was so bitter since abah didnt even sms him...

With all the sms, bbm text and phone calls, i felt closer to abah. But sometimes abah can be a person where he will text you when he cant say it in front of your face. One text that I will remember for the rest of my life:-

"take great care of my son. His eczema has never been easy to him, sometimes he will be grumpy. please sabar. I hope you will love him as much as we do"

I remembered he was very excited after rizhan came to my parents house, to meet my parents. One after another bbm text came in asking how was it.

"Rizhan dah mula, now its uncle and aunty punya turn to follow suit. nana set date with your parents, uncle nak book nana nanti dikebas orang"

Rizhan was pissed when he read it. "Abah ni tak sabar la"
I can only smile because I understand the reason why abah was so excited. But the decision is not in my hand.

When rizhan proposed, abah and mama were at Singapore for treatment. Right after he proposed to me, mama called and I heard abah's voice at the back. "we are so happy nana"

To any girl, approval from your future in law is rather enough but having them to be equally excited with the decision makes me feel so blessed to be around. Abah didnt make it for the engagement, but Im glad he had the chance to be involved in the merisik.

His only question during the merisik "can we set the date? nnt kita nak book dewan"

Now I realised he was rushing the date; so he can be there with us. Im so sorry abah...

Abah passed away peacefully with family members surrounding his bedside, and tonnes of friends and relatives flooded the ICU. Abah was a great man, not even a soul who doesnt like him. He fought hard with his illness to the very end with no sign of giving up. Abah was a fighter, he never complained of his pain not even one single second. For one year and 2 months, he fought it hard but Allah loves him even more. Abah passed away in this Holly month of Ramadhan, ternyata Allah lebih tau rancanganNya kepada setiap hambanya.

For beloved abah, you will always be in my mind and my heart. Even though it was short, for me to call you abah and for you to see me as your daughter but it was a sweet one. Thank you for everything abah, you makes it thousand times easier to enter the family and God knows how much I love you. You were the best father-in-law one can ever get. Im sorry for any wrong doings and we will miss you dearly. InsyaAllah I will take great care of Rizhan and we will be there for mama, ana, udi, rahimi and fitri; and we will always remember you.

Al - fatihah

Semoga rohnya dicucuri rahmat dan diletakkan di kalangan orang beriman.

Common Mistakes People Make with GPS and Cell Phones

I received this email from my boss this morning and it makes me thinking and at the end thanking Allah for not having GPS (eventhough I have to say GPS does helps when you are clueless)

Kindly read this....

With all the new electronic technology - this experience gives all of us something to think about.


A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken-into while they were at a Football game.
Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the
car included:
- a garage door Remote Control,
- some money and
- a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.
When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen.

1. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house.
2. They then used the Garage Remote Control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house.
3. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house.
4. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS -
don't put your home address in it. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but
no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.

Hurm, I never thought of this.......

This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen.
Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet... Etc...was stolen.
20 minutes later when she called her husband from a Pay Phone telling him what had happened, he said 'I received your text asking about our Pin Number and I've replied a little while ago.'

When they rushed down to the Bank, their money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text 'Hubby' in the Contact List and got hold of the Pin Number.. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn considerable amount of money from their Bank Account.

Moral of the lesson:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your Contact List.
Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc....
(yah, i know some may have smiles on their faces when 'Sweetheart' appears on your phone)

And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.

Also, when you're being text by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call them back to Confirm that the Message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you.

Harimau Malaya, kita akan bangkit suatu hari nanti

source: google

Yah, we didnt win last night. Nonetheless, my full support will always be with Harimau Malaya team. Despite the high spirit projected at earlier time, we were defeated with stronger mind game played by the player from the kiasu-land. Hence the name, those sore losers will do whatever it takes to qualify to the third even if it means jeopardizing their reputation and by not being professional.

A few points to ponder. Not that I am good in this area anway, heck I cant even play futsal right. But I still think even with the non-professional match brought by the team that take pride of their neutralised players, Malaysian players still projected few mistakes that shouldnt happen at big game like this.

Passing Missmatch
Hurm, thats way disappointing to me I must say. Often we saw a lot of good chances were not utilised wisely by the MF. At this level, passing balls to the opponent would be a big NO-NO. I am not sure whether they were rushed or they cant really measure the dimension, but still the clear cut passing should be a breeze to them and it didnt happen last night.

Poor Defender
We have to admit, our defender and MF were a bit sloppy last night. Defender, yah we know that KFCM is that awesome but still you guys have to play your role. The goal scored by the loser-land was a little bit too easy. I guess they were expecting KFCM to block it and it didnt happen. Defender were a little bit lazy to chase the ball at the last 10 minutes (where this is the moment where they should have fought harder), they took too long to pass the ball (simpan lama lama tak dapat score bang) and yah the list goes on. King Raja has to do some amendment to this area I believe. I think Under 23 team's defender played better (again, just my humble view)

Yah, we are so going to win Oscar Award this year
I should not elaborate much. 90,000 spectators in the stadium (oh well minus those 500 losers in Spore box. Is that the best you can give? 500? Nampak sangat takut) saw what happened. The goal keeper is the one that bring my blood to its boiling point. Sakit otak ke bang asek pegang kepala je? Taknak injured, taknak hantuk kepala pergi main skipping la. and whats with the more than 6 times stretcher moment. Budak stretcher pun malas la dah nak masuk. I dont know, being a sportsperson I am, the most embarassing moment is when you have to be carried out from the field due to injury but I guess in loser-land they enjoy it.

Ref factor
I am so going to kick this fella's ass if I ever see him again. I was so close to even throw my bottle when they passed by the tunnel. He was concentrating on the 'lets-fake-injuries- game played by Singapura-pura and he wasnt firm in his decision. The linesman, OMG dont get me started on this one. pffftttttt.... Ref should not let loser-land controlled his judgement. Come on la, takkan langgar sikit dah ada gegaran otak kot. Please la.

No Mat Yo and Safiq
Hurm, things would be much different if Mat Yo and Safiq were around. But I guess, the luck is not on our side.

Nonetheless, the man of the match; it has to be KFCM, Kuna and Muslim. Seriously. Even Safee tak menyerlah sangat semalam.

Its okay Harimau Malaya, we supporters are not like what we used to be. Boo-ing if you lose and such. We are now matured supporters. We will stand by you whatever happen.


p/s: kesian kat aunty jaga injury loser-land player, asek kena masuk padang je.

Deal: Comida "The Way You Like It" is...

Another friday to went through before the weekend, and we were wondering where should we head out for lunch.

My first thought, lets browse some deals should there be any...

Found one!

50% off on food and drinks at Comida, Solaris Dutamas, pay RM20 instead of Rm40 for Gourmet food "The Way We Like It"

Ahhhhh cheap

Lets buy...

Done, so 12.30 we head straight to Comida

ahhhhhh parking was easy at this hour, probably because it was at Block D. Not so high on occupancy just yet

[the interior]

It is a small restaurant that promotes range of Tex-Mex food including variation of Italian food. Comida is actually the brainchild of Basil, a food enthusiast who dreamed of owning a succesful chain of restaurant. The menu is quite wide spread, so it is all up to you to make your choice

They also have some lunch promo starting from Rm16.90 (with complimentary soup and ice lemon tea)

But being greedy, we ordered extra drinks. Heeee...

[ the almost finish comida soup]

Its actually a pumpkin soup. Miza didnt quite like the taste, it is quite distinct and somehow were lacking in the salt department

So the food that we ordered:

Me: Seafood Paella
Miza: BBQ Chicken Pizza
Ina: Hell's pizza
Mr Ir: Fried Steak


And so we waited...

Tick tock tick tock

After 30 minutes still no sign of our food.


You see, one thing about me is I am the type of person who treasures time, and waiting for food in the restaurant for unappropriate amount of time is not considered acceptable to me.

*double sigh*

After almost 45 minutes, the pizza arrived. Thank good for the crunchy thin crust that almost crack in your mouth when you bite it as well as lovely topping. That kinda justify the waiting time

*sorry no pic of pizza, so hungry already*

But I certainly cant say the same for my seafood paella and Mr Ir's Fried steak. It did not worth the wait, so to speak. The paella was too salty and the rice was a little bit hard.

And his fried steak was so-so. I'd give it 5.5/10

[Seafood Paella: RM35.90]

*again sorry no pic of fried steak. heeee....*

They are still new I think, so I might give it a try again for JUST the pizza. But not sure whether I can wait that long.
