A kagillion 'Thank You' to you

I'm not gonna write out the history between Mer and me, how we met and all those. But I one thing that is most important I should mention is that it all started with my friend, Syuhaida Hidayah or better known as Syu.

She's the cupid who somehow got us together. She was the middle person during the initial stages and witnessed how the relationship grew over time. With that I would like to express my greatest appreciation to her for meeting me with my jodoh.

Thank you so very much Syu, you're such an angel :)

Rattan Cut Ring

I've been trying to keep this to myself for the past week. Glad that I've been busy to keep my mind off it..haha! I HAVE been busy for the past week with work. But at the same time I was busy preparing for today. I had family members coming over today and I was the reason why they were here.

Mer's family came over to scout me..hehe! They came to merisik! :D Because of this I also learnt something new, Cincin Belah Rotan (Direct Translation: Rattan Cut Ring). Imagine The One Ring in LOTR, it's similar except without the scribbles and evil spell. No rattan involved :P

Anyways, I received that ring from his side, as a sign of acceptance, I think. I'm so lost in these things so correct me if I'm wrong :) No dates have been set just yet. Hmm..we can't be considered as engaged just yet. Let's just say we're pre-engaged :D

This is another life-changing experience for me in 2004 :) I'm so excited, I can't hide it..hehe!

I apologize for the crappy post..just felt like writing :)

@ work part 3

This week has been good for me. I come home feeling much happier as compared to the past month. Told you that magazine is much more interesting. The people here are so much nicer to hang around with.

I'm attached to MedikTV for a month starting yesterday. I've never watched it before so I was basically clueless about the show, although I know it must have something to do with medical stuff. It's 2nd season will start in January, so look out for me in case I appear..haha!

I'll be very occupied this weekend. I have a few open houses and a wedding to attend to. It should be so much fun. I'm looking forward to it :D

Satisfaction guaranteed?

I was so glad that I'm done with News..I still am actually. But today is the first time I felt a job satisfaction.

Remember I mentioned about this story I did about someone's sister who went missing? They aired it in last night's news. I watched today's afternoon news and guess what? They found the girl! Yay! :D

It's like I've done my part in making a difference and helping people, ya know? It feels so nice..

i'm feather weight again!

Such heavy weight have been lifted from me. I'm through with news department and I survived!

Just when I thought news was bearable, they gave me a terrible last assignment. I had nothing to do the whole day (working hours 9am-6pm) but they assigned me to cover an event at 6pm. I was so unmotivated!

It was something I didn't have a clue about. It was very chinese oriented about some chinese exercise ala tai chi, conducted entirely in chinese and served chinese (non-halal) food. But the people there were kind enough to translate the important points for us and also gave us some money to get food some outside since we couldn't eat theirs.

But still, it wasn't a very nice experience. Thank God it's over! Woohooo!!

10 years after primary school reunion

I was chillin' at home, watching the 2-hour season premier of Amazing Race when Mun called me up. Some primary school buddies of ours, Taf and Fazleem, dropped by her place for Raya and according to Mun, they wanted to meet Alia and me.

These primary school buddies, who were more like hi-bye friends all this while, turned out to be interesting actually. We shared stories on what we've been doing for the past half our life while having some ketupats, lemangs and cakes.

Then we played foosball til past midnight. The next day was a working day for Alia and me so we called it quits after countless rounds, not only because we needed the sleep but coz we won too many times..hahaha! :P

It was a lot of fun hanging out and getting to know these people again. At least if they hear my name next time, they won't recall that tall, big-sized, bunny-teethed, high-ponytailed 12-year-old me..hehe!

Hari Raya..yeaaaah!

I am so glad I got a day off for Hari Raya. I don't mind working throughout this whole week, as long as I get the first day off. That's when I would go about my routine for every 1st Raya, spend from day to night visiting relatives around KL - start with my granny's (mom's side) in the day, and end the night at my Pak Ngah's place (dad's side).

The picture below was taken at my Pak Ngah's. Click on it to see more..

Started work on 2nd day of Raya. I was in such a festive mood that I wore a baju kurung to work. I was expecting to go to some VIP's open house but nooo..I had to cover an accident at the highway towards Nilai (N9). When we got to the location, the accident was at the other side of the road. So there I was with my baju kurung, crossing the highway and going over the divider. I'll leave that to your imagination :P

We Are The World, We Are The Children

Fuhh..it has been one hectic week for me! Not that it's that interesting to be told in detail. Went to many places which include an Indian massage center (work purposes please), MIC HQ (got the chance to listen to Samy singing..no more please! My ears just recovered from shock), KLIA, Putrajaya and a few other places.

This morning I met a couple who came over to Sri Pentas asking for our help in finding their lost child. Poor folks, I'm suprised they pulled themselves together really well and didn't cry, although the mother almost did. I was told that I could've somewhat "pushed" her a lil bit in order to make those tears come out. Tsk tsk..bad colleague, he is.

And it's devastating to know that the mother who was in coma for weeks after being kicked off the bike by snatch thieves, died this afternoon. I was so hoping she could make it, although her chances were slim. With the baby and all, it's very sad indeed. What has the world turned into??

So my fellow girlfriends, do take good care of yourselves when you're out on the streets and even when you drive. Be aware of your surroundings, keep away from dark isolated places and always keep your car locked. If you wanna stage an assult-scene, find a location without CCTV :P

This public awareness message was brought to you by mua.

Birthday shout out for my buddy Hanz (Solo?) or is it Anakin wannabe? Ah well, here goes:

Happy Birthday 22nd Hanz!
*blueks*

(Hanz on a Palace of Golden Horses's horse)

Note: I had a choice of posting a picture of us or a kinky one of his where he was showing his rear end to the camera while going on the horse..hahahah..but I guess this is just nice ;) Hanz, open table after raya right? :D

Marvelous Blazin' Dudette

I dreaded going to work today since it's a Sunday and I've been off from work for the last 4 days. But my day started quite well actually. First thing I did was watch The Incredibles Special Screening! It was a very good movie indeed. To add more joy, I got a Cadbury goodie bag! Everyone knows I love chocolates :D Weeee...

Thought it was all over for the day. I could've gone home at 5 if nothing else came up and I could've joined my family for break fast at my granny's. But noooo..they just HAD to assign me to another story at 4 pm. I was out of the office at that time for some fresh air with my colleague and they actually called me up. Assign to someone else laaa :(

But I couldn't say that so I obliged. Went to KL Tower to check out an event organized by MMU students, 36 hours non-stop debate. To be included in the Malaysian Book of Records. Very enthusiastic bunch of organizers, very proud of them. I made the effort in mentioning MMU a few times in the story I wrote :D

Lucky thing the sponsored food at the office was good today. I left quite late waiting for my family to get back from granny's. I'm glad to be home. Now I can watch my newly-downloaded Smallville season 4 episode 7..yesss! I smell jealousy from some of you peeps. Don't worry, I'll write down the spoilers real soon...muahaha! :P

Girly Night

I had a BLAST with the chicks last night! We broke fast together at Viccuda in Damansara Utama. After that, Mun had to get something at OU and all of us decided to tag along :D Later that night we went for desserts at TGIF. This was what we ordered:
  • Mocha Mud Pie
  • Brownie Ice Cream
  • Smoothie (that's Alia's)
  • Ice Lemon Tea (Refilled 4-5 times)
Oh yes, I received birthday gifts (yes, we haven't met for THAT long) . Got some pretty nice smelling teddybear soaps from the twins and very sweet looking sandals from Sha and Mun. Such sweethearts :D I received an early present from Heydeq before she left for UK a few months back, which was a notebook - just nice before I started work :)

Speaking of Heydeq, we're looking forward for you to come back! In December as I was told, right? Correct me if I'm wrong.

I realise it isn't always simple to make plans with the girls. There would always be changes in place, date and time, which would result in a lot of phone calls and SMSs between us. But we don't mind it coz we have a whole lot of fun when we meet.

We talked a lot about Mun's soon-to-be married life (yes, SHE's getting married :D). Ever since her big announcement, I've been less pressured by them...phew! But that doesn't stop the pressure from my relatives..hmph!

If all goes well, we'll be going out again next week for some Raya shopping and break fast :D

I just joined this Hi5 community thing (ala Friendster, Myspace, etc.)
Do add me at http://www.hi5.com/i?l=AAMH53W so that I don't look like such an anti-social :D
Thanx y'all!

A thankful 16 year old

I'm just sharing this bit and I'm not being arrogant or anything, but this is what I've been told by many people:
I'm very lucky to have landed a job that many would want and difficult to get.

I remember many people applied back then and some compete in the PONDs Inspirasiku to be in my shoes. This being my first job and enjoying it, all I can say is Alhamdulillah for all that God has given me..

I never thought I would end up in this line of job, at least not seriously. I always saw myself as being a housewife or a princess..haha! Now that I'm here, I give my 100% in all I do, eventhough I might not like News Department very much. But it will be over about 2 weeks time then I get to proceed with other things that I prefer. I couldn't have done it without the support from my family, friends and Mer *huggies*

Anyways, here's the usual conversation I get with people at work..

dude/chick: where are you from?
me: from multimedia university
d/c: miim? (formerly known as akademi tv3)
me: no no..mmu, in cyberjaya
d/c: oooh that one! so how long is your practical?
me: i'm not a practical student, i'm a contract staff
d/c: oh really? i thought you're a trainee
me: *giggle* no i'm not
d/c: what did you study? mass comm?
me: no, I did IT
d/c: hahaha..how did you get into broadcasting?
me: (bla bla bla..)
d/c: how do u like it so far?
me: it's been great..been learning a lot
d/c: so you're attached to news/magazine?
me: technically no..(i go on explaining my situation which they find confusing)
d/c: i see.. in the end they will decide where to put you or you decide?
me: they decide but I guess I get to let them know my preference
d/c: so which department do u like most?
me: i have yet to decide (although I have very much made up my mind :P)


Every bit in that conversation is true. Even the MIIM part. I can't give them the abbreviation, MMU, at first coz it's not very well known over there. Sad but true :(

And yes, many think I'm a trainee. That's what I get for looking like a 16 year old..muahaha :P
