Counter attack

What a day! The game was strategized really well. Went across the street, took all 4 corners of the field and brought everything together just in time to make a pitstop at some phone booths and for break fast at home!

What game am I talking about? Shopping! Hehe..

Went to Isetan Lot 10 late in the evening today (parked at Sungei Wang). Got everything I needed at one place. I was suprised on how many things that caught my eyes at the Isetan Sale. The discounts were jaw-dropping! Believe it or not, I saved over RM300! Couldn't have done it without Mer. He's so supportive in giving comments and suggestions :D

We checked out some handphones before we for home. Yes, I'm phone-hunting and I've got my sight on some pretty interesting ones. I'm still open to any other recommendations though. So by all means, give me some models (handphone models that is :P).

Over all, it was fairly quick. Left for KL at 4 something and we managed to get home in time for break fast at my place. Lets do that again! Hehe..

November Rains

Woah..where did all the time go? Just when I thought I just graduated, feeling very fresh and young, now it's close to the end of 2004! I'm turning 23 next year! Aaaaa...the horrorr!! All of the sudden I feel so old..*checks for wrinkles*

That reminds me, I've mentioned before that 2004 would be a prominent year in my life as this is the year my life advance forward in a lot of aspects. Lets see now, I've graduated, started working..hey that's about it so far! But that's a huge step. There are 2 more months before the end of 2004 and it's still not too late for any other advances to happen. Lets wait and see. Check on me on 31st Dec '04 ;)

So when 2005 comes, when people ask how old I am, do I say 20 or 21? Hmmm..that's a thought to ponder upon..hehe! Hey, I look 16 ok :P Just imagine me in a school uniform with a ponytail and a lollypop.

If I'm able to go back in time, say til I was 15, I would change a lot of things, like not hook up with some guys. I wasn't a player, mind you :P Just that I had a bad history in relationships until I finally met Mer *wink* Somehow, it has helped me appreciate him much more. Know what I mean? (I can feel Mer smiling while reading this. Here's a smile back at ya! :D)

One thing I wouldn't change is the friends I've made, especially the chicks. They've been around to see me at my lowest of the lowest, seen the good and evil(?) side of me, seen me at my worse appearance(?) and they still stick to me anyways. They are such sweethearts and I love them all :D Friends come and go but the true ones never go (did I say that right?).

Ah, enough. I feel like a granny telling her grandchildren her teenage story :P Come along kids..

@ work again

This is the 2nd time I'm writing from the office. I'm able to write this coz most of the bigshots are in a meeting and I'm very2 free right now (hope it stays that way for the rest of the day).

Yesterday, the person in charge of all journalists' schedule, lets call him Lee, told me that I'll be working on Hari Raya! I knew there was a possibility for me to work on that day but I was hoping he would be kind enough to let me off..but he wasn't :( That's the disadvantage of being a trainee.

But the good thing is, I requested to work on the 2nd day of raya instead of the 1st..and it was granted! :D I'm gonna be around here during that time no biggie. Oh and peeps, if you guys wanna come over for raya, do let me know in advance ;)

Ooops, line not too clear anymore. Will continue next time..

Muahaha..I'm off from work today :D I had a pretty busy 3 days of work and I wanna make the best out of today. Had a long good night sleep (about 11 hours) and had so many things planned. But I just realised that there isn't any car at home :( Gotta wait for daddy to come back..hopefully really soon.

Guess where I broke fast last Sunday..
On a Marine Police yacht in the middle of Straights of Malacca :D

And guess what I had..
A whole lot of galah prawns and 3 kinds of fish cooked in 3 different styles :D

Guess how many rounds I had..
Well, actually it's no biggie..only 2 :D

And guess what I did before that..
I got to see those marine police in action. They inspected 2 boats carrying Indons with a whole lot of stuff for transporting. They didn't make any captures though. But I did get to see those men holding guns and wearing bullet-prove vests...very cool! :D

The media was invited to see the marine police at work and also for break fast. Very nice people, they are. It was totally opposite from where I broke fast the day before that, at Jalan Masjid India..hehe! This one was a whole lot of fun. And no, I didn't get sea-sick at all. Lets do that again! I hope to be able to go on the heli one day ;)

Note to all: Only kids can order kid's meal

Last night went break fasting at Pizza Hut Sunway with Mer, Boolat, Najhan, Red-eyed Lara whom I suggested for her to wear an eye-patch ala Angelina Jolie in Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow AND her other half..ehehe..

It was inconjunction with Boolat's 22nd birthday celebration. We had a good time exchanging stories and making fun of this malay couple at this other table who couldn't get their hands off each other. I know it's not good especially during Ramadan but I just can't help it! I tried not saying anything about them but the way they were behaving, it's as if they screamed to be made fun of. Get what I mean? :D

Ah, enough about them. Lara has difficulty choosing her food. Since she came quite late, we (Boolat, Mer and me) thought of ordering a kid's meal for her. So we called the waitress, and started ordering. It turns out, we were not eligible to order the kid's meal. We hafta be 12 & below! we know, haha!

We did take a few pictures but not with my camera. Gotta wait for Mer or Najhan to pass me them pics. Hurry up guys!

Oh, did I mention that I just got back from work? Got home at 10 tonight, feeling very2 tired and I can't sleep in tomorrow coz it's a working day for meeee.... Goodnight world and sweet dreams everyone. I'm out..zzZz..

I'm off today (Thursday) and Friday coz I'll be working this weekend. I'm taking things day by day and trying to make the best out of it even though I'm not having that much fun at the news department (what do you's news!). Ah well, I'm surviving so I guess that's cool ;)

Roll the rolling roller stuff

Muahahaha..for once I have a progressive shopping day! I came back frustratingly empty handed the last time but not yesterday, no sirree! Spent my evening walking around Mid Valley with Mer and broke fast at Chilli's.

Notice how kids woosh around shopping malls with their rollershoes? I find it kinna irritating actually. Don't know if I would be doing the same thing if I were to be their age though..hehe.. I notice parents don't bring their kids with those shoes to sections of the mall that sells crystals and such. Once rolled considered sold!

Think again, if they allow kids to use those rollershoes, why not rollerblades right? I saw 2 mat salleh kids using them yesterday in the mall..hahaha! You go kids! Show those rollershoes kids who's boss :P Now I'm being quite childish, aren't I?

Last but not least, to my buddy..

Happy 23rd Birthday Lin!

(that's Lin and me at the theater)

She's taking the plunge

I'm not sure if I get the green light to break the news just yet, so I'm not gonna mention any names. I'm just too excited to keep it to myself, so here goes..

One of my closest friends is engaged! Yes, with the ring and all! They've even set the date :D Friends always think that I would be the first to go, but it's proven wrong..muahaha >:)

Should've heard how we screeeaamed when we heard the news! This friend of mine secretly recorded it on her phone. We felt so silly when we heard the playback..hehehe.. We sounded histerical alright!

Oh well, I'm so happy for her and I wish her all the happiness in the world ;)

Before I end,

Happy 22nd Birthday Boolat!

(that's Boolat and me at OU's Burger King back in March, just before our finals)

Selamat Berpuasa

Had a rather relaxing week at work and I'm enjoying it while it lasts. I'm sooooo not looking forward to next week! I'll be attached with the news department for the whole month starting next Monday and I predict it would be a very tiring and long month. Wish me luck and look out for my hand holding out the mic..haha.. :P

To all my muslim friends, have a great fasting month ahead.. :)

Our 1st Idol

Spent the whole day at home today, something that I haven't done for quite a while. I was watching TV and went online most of the time, downloading songs and Smallville season 4 :P Cloe's alive! Muahahaha.. >:)

Oh yes, I was looking forward for Malaysian Idol too, although I (and many other people out there) expected who was gonna win. Woo hoo! What did I say about giving the Malaysian Idol title straight to Jac? Hehehe.. She did absolutely fabulous throughout the whole season. I don't remember her singing a single bad note nor did she ever spoil a song. She's tha bomb! Fantasia, watch out! :D

Malaysian Idol @ Genting

Went karaoke again last Wednesday night. It turns out it was ladies night, so no cover charge for us girls :D It was so much fun. I came to realise that karaoke can be addictive coz I can't seem to get enough of it. Should get a karaoke set at home one day.

Yesterday I had a full day. Woke up around 4 something (4 am that is), had to report to work at 5 am to attend a show's live transmission from KLIA. Left the office at 4 pm coz I had transportation problems. (Note to self: gotta get a car)

Hurried back to the office again at 5 pm to meet up with some colleagues to go to Genting Arena of Stars to catch Malaysia Idols Grand Finals! :D If you think they sounded good on TV, imagine it live! Had goosebumbs..hehe..The show was great, Jac blew away the show with her definately-kalah-fantasia-barrino voice and I brought back that big Hand back home as rememberance.

Got home at 1 am and collapse to bed soon after..what a day!

@ work

My day at the office..

Chapter 1 - Amirah
This is the first time I'm writing at work. My colleague, Amirah, is pastering me to write about her. So there you have it, Amirah Alkaff everyone :D

Ok2, that was too short. Gotta continue..

Amirah's pants have buttons from knee down and Naz wants to open them ALL..kinky stuff happening at work eh? On the other hand, she wants Adli to take off HIS pants, coz apparently she HAS to sew it - there's a hole near one of his pockets.

Chapter 2 - Cerekarama
There's this office drama going on between Amirah and a particular journalist. He likes her, he thinks she likes him when actually she was just being friendly, he wants to ask her out, she doesn't want, he insisted and someone else signed his name in the SMS that she sent him. That sparked a controversy and would've led violence if they happen to meet face to face.

The power a lady have over men..muahahaha >:) I don't wanna mention names but this so-called journalist, is a very 'well-liked' journalist. FAT, BALD, and loves CRIME. Do the Math. (She wrote that :P)

Catching up with them peeps

Last Sunday Mer and me met up with Lara, Boolat, Hanz and Lara's other half, Kamarul. It was another post-birthday celebration and suprised me with a chocolate cake! (with candles showing that I'm 32, thanx to Lara :P) They just knew how much I love chocolate. So sweet of them :D

After that we went for a few rounds of foosball and pool. It was a very fun day indeed :) Hoping to meet up again before the fasting month for more fun, karaoke maybe? Hehe..

Oh yes, remember the theater titled Tat Nenas, the one I went to about 2 months back? Well, they became champions of the Malaysian Theater Festival and won RM15,000! They will be staging it yet again in April next year. This time at Istana Budaya! Bravo! Bravo! I'm so proud to be an MMU graduate :D Just in case anyone forgets, the theater originated from MMU :P

She Rawks!

Yyyyyyyeeeeeeeaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!! Alicia Keys Rocks y'all!!

It is such a waste for any R&B lover who missed it coz it was filled with energy. Reshmonu got things started by performing for the 1st 1/2 hour. Altimet (of Teh Tarik Crew) was his guest for his Like This Like That song. After that we waited for another 15 minutes before the lady herself took over the stage, with her trademark hat while holding a cane and everybody just went AaAAaaaaaaAaAaaaaaaAaaaaaa!! *clap*clap*clap*

What's an Alicia Keys's concert without a grand piano? She performed about half the show with the piano and the other half showing off her sultry dancing skills which was pretty cool. I remember her singing one song while flirting with the audience by laying on the piano and later played part of the intro to her next song (while still laying on the piano) - get what I mean?

She belted out a mixture of tunes from her 1st album and the lastest one. Can't recall the sequence, but these are some of them:

A Woman's Worth
How Come You Don't Call Me?
Rock With You
If I Ain't Got You
Never Felt This Way
You Don't Know My Name

There are a few songs that I don't recognize. I remember her singing a cover song about war but I fail to know its title. If anyone knows, please share with me ;)

Getting out of the parking area was like a whole new ball game. Cars were parked on the grass area with only 1 narrow way out. The only way to get out of the place is to wait for owners of cars that were blocking the way to remove them, or just go through the high curb - which didn't seem to be a problem for SUVs and MPVs.

There we saw Malaysians and foreigners working together to help each other get their car over the curb, by instructing them on where to turn and strategically placing bricks to cushion their tires on its way down and to avoid scraping their car. People were standing around to look at other people's attempts and they went wooo everytime someone scraps the bottom of their car or misses the bricks.

We decided not to join the fun and waited till the path was clear. What a way to end the night :D
