On Graveyard Shift

I'm here yet again in BDC, working on Friday night *sigh*. At some point, I wish I don't have to drag myself all the way to Bangi to work when everybody else is enjoying the start of weekend. But at some other point, I know I'm gonna miss all these operations people who keep us entertained while coping with our graveyard shift. I mean, if it's not because of this project, we wouldn't be hanging out together at all man!

But sometimes all that's left between me and SRB on Friday nights are...

...some kind of notes I left behind as an attempt to console him a bit for having to spend the night alone hehe. Sajelaa, wanna be conventional once in a while ahaks. Lame - I know.

But tonight I think we're gonna finish earlier than planned, so I really hope SRB and I sempat to catch Twilight's midnight show malam ni! We're just gonna gamble pegi sana baru beli ticket, so GSC Pavillion, please save 2 tix for me pleasseee! Edward Cullen, Jacob Black...I will come to youuuuu~

Under One Roof

Despite the news that Pet has bought over iP to become one of its subsidiaries again, we still got kicked out of the tower due to insufficient office space for Pet's growing staff, cisss buruk sikut siottt hahaha! So all of us have moved to a brand new building called Menara Perak - located right across Convex, behind Impiana, beside Menara UOA. It's about 15-minute leisure walk from KLCC. So not that far - if the weather is nice. If it rains, bloody hell it's gonna be a mess!

The building looks very ordinary on the outside but kinda nice & modern inside. Yelah, everything still new and shiny so best aaa. But the smell of new furnitures, new carpet and newly painted walls kinda makes people dizzy by the end of the day. More reason to go back sharp at 5 PM hihi! But it's good to have everybody work in the same building - merapatkan silaturrahim sikit chewahhhh! Previously, some of us tercampak at L8, L10, L59, L60 that we don't even know our own shipmates.

I like my new cubicle, mainly coz it's further away from our beloved Madam haha. Plus she's sitting right beside the big boss. So she won't be able to use her unprofessional way of getting things done; i.e. shouting at people like a crazy witch, like she did before (I truly hope) coz she knows that big boss dislikes that very much hehe.

New place, hopefully comes with new work resolutions. Or maybe that can wait till the next New Year haha! In the meantime, let's take it slow bebeh hihi~

Little Niece new little niece!!!!
Sorry Suri Cruise, you're officially kicked off
from my No. 1 spot for the most adorable baby.
My niece is on the top of the list now hehe.

Hello, my name is Khayra binti Shah Faezal.
This is me at my 3rd hour into the world.
My auntie says I'm soo very cute that she wants to
put me in her pocket and take me with her hihiks!

Welcome to the family little darling~

Ipoh Mali

Our day started early this morning, considering it's weekend and I just got home around 1-2 AM last night. Reached USJ at 8.30 AM to pick up my parents and off we went to Ipoh for Aini's wedding. After sesat seround dua, sambil sight-seeing Ipoh city unintentionally hehe, we finally managed to find the right place around noon. Met some familiar faces and some 'long-time-no-see' faces as well.

Congrats Aini & Eddy!
Semoga berbahagia hingga ke akhir hayat =)

Work in Progress

Been driving back and forth from KL to USJ more often these days. Ngaaa...macam manelah nanti when we actually have to drive to work from Subang everyday. I love the new place, but I'm sure as hell gonna miss the current 15-minute drive to work *sigh*.

The renovation work is showing some good progress so far. This will be the only time I'll be very excited to see that someone has left a few big gaping holes on my dinding, the front porch tiles stacked on my lawn and some of my beloved white-picket-fence dah dicabut leaving my pagar 'rongak' sedikit.

Can't wait for the new roof to come up and for the whole exterior to be painted with a new color too - that would be the ultimate face-lift!

Since we're already paying other people to reburfish the new house, for the current house plak - all refurbishment or redecoration work for the new tenant kenalaa buat sendiri. Bankrupt aa dooo if semua benda bayar org buat. So next project is repainting the apartment. I'll let SRB take the lead on this since he's the one yg bersemangat sgt - I'm clueless on wall painting dude. And it has to be real SOON babe!

Pak Long passed away last Sunday due to heart failure isk. For those who came to my engagement and nikah ceremonies, you'd know him as the spokeperson for SRB's family. With his beautiful speeches - penuh dgn pepatah & peribahasa Melayu, we'll always always be grateful to him for making those events among the most memorable moments in our lives.

Went back to JB on Sunday night and Alhamdulillah...jenazah selamat dikebumikan on Monday after Zuhur. SRB even got his first experience riding in van jenazah to JB hehe. Reached KL around 11-ish PM Monday and both of us were too tired to get up for work the next morning that we sleepily decided to take half-day leave hehe.

Semoga Allah mencucuri rahmat ke atas roh Pak Long dan menempatkannya di kalangan orang-orang yang beriman. Al-Fatihah...

The Heart of the Matter

Watched an old episode of Grey's Anatomy S4 recently and ohh, how I love Callie in that "The Heart of the Matter" episode.

Izzie: Callie, I'm sorry...about the cafeteria.
I didn't know that you wanted to talk to me.
I thought you wanted to kill me.
I'm sorry about everything.
With George, I'm really sorry. I feel terrible.

Callie: You feel terrible? You took advantage.
He was your best friend. I tried to trust you.
And then you pull that thing in the cafeteria today?
It's not bad enough that you humiliate me
by getting in bed with my husband.
You have to humiliate me at work, too.
George might be the one who broke his vows,
but you...we're women, Izzie.
You did this to another woman. You...took something from me.
You stole something from me like a petty little thief.
You are the one who should be humiliated.
You are the one who should be ashamed.
So don't you dare come to me for forgiveness, you traitorous bitch!

Pergghhh...YOU GO GIRL!! This is definitely my 2nd favourite scene throughout the whole GA series. 1st is of course Christina Yang's "I'm fine, I'm fine" nervous breakdown scene after her miscarriage in S2 - the one where she couldn't stop crying hysterically and was later 'ssshhhh'ed by Burke. Omg LOVE it!

But now, I don't even bother to watch GA S5 coz Mer&Der is like wuteverrr AND they turned Callie into a lesbian? Oh come on...such a cliche! But as Robert Downey Jr. said, everybody's gay once in a while in Hollywood hahaha so true!

With all the relationship dramas I witness around me currently - among friends, colleagues and even the Abby+Norman Hakim case (ohoo don't lemme get started on that!), this particular scene really knocked some sense into me. So to all women out there, don't be a thief! Whatever fishy business you're doing with somebody else's boyfriends/ husbands right now, please know that you're also hurting/betraying the other woman - who has feelings just like your-selfish-self. And if you don't care about that, well...that just goes to show that you are indeed a traitorous B*#%CH after all eh?

Goshh, all of this makes me feel like....babe, I'm just glad I found you wakakaka selingan jiwang sket!

A Night at the Movies

Everybody's got their own favourite place to get their DVD ciplak with top-notch picture quality aku sorang jek yg menyokong piracy here? Sorrylaaa, gue tak mampu nak beli RM60's original DVD maa. Well...our favourite place is a shop called Dot Audio Enterprise in TTDI, near the big Maybank on the corner tu (Nadiah, you'd know this place. Dekat gile dgn ur house hehe).

Seriously, best gile kedai ni. Old movies, latest movies - semua ade for RM10 each. And with very very good visual and audio quality. The owner will even tell you honestly if the picture quality is not soo good (I don't understand why he has to put the DVD out if he knows the picture is not great, kiasu punye case aa ni kot). And if you collect 10 stamps (1 DVD, 1 stamp), you'll get 1 free DVD - any movie of your choice. 80% of our DVD collections are bought from this shop and so far, it only has a 'disappointment rate' of perhaps 5% laaa - some of the English subtitles are absolute crap! But other than that, it's all gooood.

The latest addition to our collections are

Burn After Reading - omg you have to watch it. Brad Pitt's hilarioussss in it!

Nanny Diaries - my choice of chick flick this time around. Shed a tear or two at the end of it. Okaylaa.

Righteous Kill - SRB's attempt to neutralize our DVD collections (which are mostly cartoons and romcoms and love dramas hehe) with 'manly' movies haha. Haven't seen it yet but I hope with Deniro and Al Pacino in it, the movie won't disappoint.

The Dark Knight - Christian Bale is super hot and the late Heath Ledger gave a GREAT performance here, so why not? I just love the scene when the big truck slowly terbalik, just awesome mannn.

Next time have to make sure to get 'Madagascar', in preparation to watch the sequel 'Madagascar 2' which will be out soon hehe. I'd like to move it move itttt~

P/S: The renovation work starts today. I can't believe this day would come. Hopefully everything turns out great Insya Allah aminnnn. I can't wait to see the results yippeee!

WWR Plan

After almost 1-month break, now we're back to execution mode a.k.a working on weekend nights aarrgghhh! Although it's fun & lawakss to see colleagues acting silly and weird when everyone dah mamai and high on teh tarik (semua personal secrets pon kluar, boleh gune utk blackmail ni one day muakaka), of course I'd very much prefer to spend the weekend doing my own thinglah kan. *Sigh*

November's gonna be quite an uneventful month, except for one trip to Ipoh at the end of the month for a friend's wedding. Oh crap, belom book cheap hotel to spend a night.

Come December, we're going white-water rafting oo yeahhh!

Errr, obviously Malaysian rivers are not exactly like the pic but it'll be EXCITING nevertheless! The first time I went white-water rafting was in Sabah with my girlfriends before daku berkahwin hehe and it was...BEST giler! Sakit tekak menjerit mcm pompuan gila and sakit perot ketawa sampai dah takleh bercakap. Ohh the sweet timesss.

Anyway, this time around a colleague is organizing it as sort of unofficial team-building session. Bagos ade colleague yg rajin organize events and get-togethers ni. Spouses, partners and friends are also invited coz bayar sendiri2 pun hehe. SRB has agreed to join the fun so yeayyy - if you taknak dear, you know I'll manipulate things till you agree to come hihihi!

Most of my ofismates were surprised when I told them I've done it before - they thought I'm this very lemah-lembut, feminine lady who's afraid of getting physically hurt, sunburnt, etc. thought wrong dude! Just because I wear baju kurung most of the time at work, doesn't mean I'm a perempuan Melayu terakhir in all ways beb. It just means that I'm too lazy to iron my pants and shirts ok muahahaha!

So I'm reading this book 'Twilight' by Stephenie Meyer currently

no.1, there's a movie coming out based on this book and you know how I like reading books that are turned into a movie (yeah lame I know, but so what?) and no.2, because the actor playing the hero is sexayyy bebeh hehe (yeah superficial I know, but so what?).

It's about a teenage girl who's in love with a teenage vampire (of course she didn't know at first that he's a vampire laaa gile ke) this is kinda light-reading ajelah. I've been reading it before bedtime and I haven't even reached the part where the book actually explains that he is a vampire, but demmit I have been having nightmares for 2 nights in a row!

First, I dreamed that I can talk to Orang Bunian, they're everywhere but aku sorang jek boleh nampak diorang, WTH aa kan and second night, I dreamed that there's this some sort of lembaga hitam who kept following me around huwaarrgghh! I know it's mainan tido and all, but this is exactly why I am very anti-horror movie okkk. I will keep on terbayang2 hantu tu and terbawak ke tido and then wake up feeling restless.

I'm starting to like the book but please laaa don't gimme nightmares. Ke aku ni yg penakot sgt? Nahhh...I don't think so hahaha!

Testing new template coz am just in the mood to do so.
Let's try this for a few days...until I crave the normalcy back.

Sunday, November 2, 2008


Spent the weekend ke hulur ke hilir finding the right materials within our citarasa and most importantly, our budget. As much as I wanna dread it - coz penat nak pikir about the paperwork, detailed design, colors, etc - we gotta start the work soon before the economy turns realll bad over here. Arrgghhh benci aaa sume org naikkan harga barang becoz of oil-price hike dulu. Now that harge minyak dah turun, harge barang taknak ikut turun plak sheeeshhhh!!!! Bloodey unfair~

I kept on worrying whether our choice of colors make sense or whether the whole thing is gonna look like a circus. So while waiting for the contractor to provide the full sketch, we decided to make one on our own hehe. Went to MidValley for some shopping and bought a sketching pad, crayons as well hihi. Found a comfy spot in Coffee Bean and we're all set to start working bebeh chewahhh...

SRB, the more artsy-type compared to me, did some sketching on the new house from different views. I just gave a bit of instructions and couldn't wait to color jek hahaha!

It looked nice on our amateur sketch, so hopefully it turns out great later aminnnn...Now all we have to do is prepare the moolah huwaaaa bankruptlah akuuu!!!
