2011 is coming!


source

I love my work and enjoying every minute doing it. And I promise to work harder next year and perform better.


source

One of the things that I enjoy doing is traveling. This year I didn't get to travel as much as I want to. So I hope I can travel more next year (POSSIBLE KE?). Places that I wish to visit is Australia, Italy or yang dekat2 probably Vietnam or Bangkok. (Owh... and I really2 want to go to Paris and New York... one day perhaps)

source

I'm 30 years now, and my responsibility is increasing. In order to be responsible on other things, I need to be responsible on my own health first. I need to really discipline, and more aware of what I put into my mouth and into my body. I will eat healthily, eat more greens, drink more water, eat less sugar and processed food. And starting to religiously take my supplements too.

source

I will pray harder too. Indeed I need to be more discipline. And I've been thinking of wearing Hijab for quite sometime already. Perhaps I'll do it next year? InsyaAllah....


source

I guess this is the hardest part of all. I am determined to get my self a thread-mill. I'm not in a condition that allows me to work-out, diet, loose weight and get in shape right now. I can only do that probably in August next year. So by 08/2011, I'll get my self a thread-mill, and work my-ass out on it and hoping to make my body somewhat like the girl in the picture above :p


source

And I dont know if I can do this next year, but I really2 wish I can get back to diving. I am a certified scuba diver and its been quite sometimes since I last been under the water. I really2 miss it. And I miss my dive buddy. And I miss my pink fins (yerp, my fins are in hot pink.. hehe)


wish me lots of luck! hehehe.... happy new year to all of you my lovely readers :)

Laksa Teluk Kechai

Everyone who knows that my in laws are in Alor Setar, asked me if I have tried Laksa Teluk Kechai. It seems that it is a must try!

So hubby and my in laws made a few attempts to take me there, but unfortunately, the laksa is finished (yup, the laksa can be sold out as early as 5pm!) or the stall is closed!

So finally, the last time we are back in Alor Setar, we managed to get it at around 2pm.

According to hubby, this is the most famous ones, Zakaria, Laksa Teluk Kechai (along Jalan Kuala Kedah)

Customers started filling up the kedai.



So we decided to just tapau. The funny thing is, you didnt get to order by the normal quantity, say 4 bungkus laksa, or 8 bungkus laksa and so on. It goes by kilos! hehehe... We ordered for 1kg laksa (it serves for about 5 - 6 pax). The price is RM10/kg.

This is the condiments for 1kg laksa. It is not pre-cut for you. Dia bagi seketul-seketul... bawang, timun, cili padi, telur... balik rumah, potong la sendiri ye. Bagus jugak, you get to cut and serve it fresh as and when you want to consume the laksa.

The condiments is prepared by my sis-in-law, not me... thats why it looks presentable... hehe

And the most important ingredient is this "sambal kelapa". It is made with coconut, obviously. It is not spicy as the name suggest, but the sambal kelapa will make the laksa thicker and gives more "kick" to it. Seriously... memang kaw!

So apa lagi, sila la try if you happen to be in Alor Setar.. I'm not sure if this Laksa is available else where.

We have been Married for 1 year :) (and still counting)


(Anniversary by Tony Toni Tone, I love this song so much! Enjoy...)


It's our anniversary!

12.12.09 ~ 12.12.10 and still counting.

Our marriage is one year old!

The year gone by just like that. Tak terasa pun. Probably because we both were busy adjusting ourselves to married life. Adjusting to staying together, learning about each other’s behavior, adapting to each other’s family, and most of all, busy enjoying each other’s company.

I felt bless. People said marriage is a gamble. But I didn’t get into this “gamble” blindly without doing some calculative risk. So far, I am confident to say that I made the right decision. My husband is my true love, my best friend and my soul mate. He really completed me. He is my better half, literally. I’m the hot tempered half, he is the calm half, I am the talkative and social half, he is the shy and homely half, I am the shallow half, he is the deep thinker.

So far, in our one year of married life, we never got into argument. I was the one who always “merajuk”, pulling faces, giving the silent treatment, if things doesn’t go the way I expected. But he will be the one who will just keep quiet, patiently, waiting for my “emotional roller coaster” settle.

But then again, that’s what people said setahun jagung. Things are still new. We are still learning. Orang kata benda baru semua bau wangi :)

I hope I can still say the same for our 2nd, 3rd, 4th anniversary and so on. I hope this feeling that we have for each other will last forever. Even when the small one arrives.

In in love, so much in love.

choc and beyond

Tried and tested, new product from cadbury. Accidentally bumped into this choc when I was doing my grocery shopping at Giant Hypermarket this evening. For some reason now choc loose its magical effect on me. I am not tempted at all. Dulu memang pantang tengok... I will finish it in a blink of an eye!

But still, trying out new product gives no harm (especially chocolate :p)

Its called Cadbury Fingers (RM3.90)


It is a chocolate coated waffer. Just like the chocolate that people normally use for hantaran... ala, chocolate yang orang selalu guna untuk jadi "pagar rumah", yang wrapper kilat2 tu... yup, that one. It taste exactly the same. Cuma this one rasa "mahal" sikit :)

Awal Muharam (Doa Awal Tahun & Akhir Tahun Hijrah)

Doa Akhir Tahun dibaca 3 kali pada akhir waktu Asar atau sebelum masuk waktu Maghrib pada akhir bulan Zulhijjah.

Sesiapa yang membaca doa ini, Syaitan berkata
“Kesusahan bagiku dan sia-sia lah pekerjaanku menggoda anak Adam pada setahun ini dan Allah binasakan
aku satu saat jua. Dengan sebab membaca doa ini, Allah ampunkan dosanya setahun”
Berikut adalah Doa Akhir Tahun




Doa Awal Tahun
dibaca 3 kali selepas maghrib pada malam satu Muharram. Sesiapa yang membaca doa ini, Syaitan berkata
“Telah amanlah anak Adam ini daripada godaan pada tahun ini kerana Allah telah mewakilkan
dua Malaikat memeliharanya daripada fitnah Syaitan”.
Berikut adalah Doa Awal Tahun

Year End Syndrom

I left home like usual this morning. In fact, a lil bit late. But I arrived office early then usual. The road is empty. Not literally, but close to empty, not like the typical Monday morning.

I just realized that tomorrow is a Public Holiday. Awal Muharram. The whole of Malaysia will be on holiday. So people take the opportunity by taking their annual leave today to get a long stretch holiday. And a lot of people is taking the opportunity to finish up what's left of their annual leave.

I kindda like it coz the traffic is less heavy, and its easy to get parking in the office. But it sux big time coz I'm stucked in the empty office!

BORINGGGGGGGGGGG

what is cooking tonite?

I made this a few weeks ago for dinner. Tak selera hari2 makan nasi and I ran out of idea of what to cook for hubby for dinner. It's fish and chips with steamed mixed vege, mashed potato, and french fries.

NOOODLES

Are you a fan of noodles? I'm not a fan, but bila jemu makan nasi, or sandwich, and dunno what else to eat, I'll resort to noodles. All sorts of noodles, prawn noodles, curry noodles, all sorts of laksa, and the list goes on.

When I was in Subang Skypark (formerly known as Subang Terminal 3 Airport), I bumped into a restaurant that sells all sorts of noodles! The name of the restaurants, well, errr, NOOODLES STATION (spelled with 3 "O")


Just like any other typical restaurant, well arranged and most importantly, clean.

I had Nyonya Prawn Noodle Soup (RM9.90). I like the fact that the soup is thick and you can actually taste the prawn-ness in the soup and dorang tak kedekut rencah. lots of vege, egg, fish cakes and prawns.

Hubby had this. Chicken Porridge with condiments. I forgot what is the price. But I think it is about RM10 too.


What is so special about this restaurant is they make their own noodles. They claimed that their specialty springy egg noodles is made using high protein flour with no artificial colouring or preservatives.

They also offer a wide range choices such as western food, rice dishes, childrens' meals and more.

A.W.A.Y

Sorry I've been away for quite some time. So many things happening to me (and people close to me) for the past 2 weeks.

First, I've been to a 3D2N training in Hulu Langat. As the name of the place suggest, true enough, tempat tu tersangat la "ulu" to the extent there was no phone signals, not even a bar!

And it was a spiritual enhancement training. So the timing was really packed, had to get up as early as 3.30am (for solat taubat, solat hajat, solat tasbih, tahajud, solat witir, and finally solat subuh.. phew) and sleep as late as 11.30pm everyday! It was quite taxing on me. But it was so "cleansing"... trust me. Kalau harap nak perform all the prayers on my own, jangan harap la kan... So it was a golden opportunity.

And the place is in the middle of a jungle and there was no source of clean water and electricity. The electricity source is from generator, so please don’t expect water heater or air-cond for that matter. And please bear in mind that it is in the middle of a jungle and the weather can get so fre@king cold in the morning… ice cold! Susah gile nak mandi!

And the best part is the source of water. The main source of water is… “Drum roll please”….. RIVER! Air sungai ok, yang tak tapis2… why I said tak tapis is because, my friend who stayed at the chalet next to mine, found a small fish inside her basin! Hahahaha… and if its raining, the water will get really murky, macam the ais… yuck! I had to brush my teeth with mineral water! Tak selera nak rinse my mouth with that water… haih

Tapi come to think of it again, org Zaman dulu2, hidup tepi sungai, macam tu la their lifestyle kan. Ok je. Kita nie je (I’m referring to yours truly) yang being pampered all the time, susah nak back to nature. *self reflecting moment*

Secondly, on the day that I got back from the training, my nephew text me and said that my mom felt down and she is in so much pain. To cut the long story short, after sending her to emergency ward in University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC; formerly known as University Hospital), the doctor informed her that she fractured her thigh and had to be warded and later operated. She stayed in the hospital for 1 week, had her surgery on last Tuesday and was discharged last night. I was here and there between home, office and hospital non-stop. On the day she went for surgery, I spent 8hours in the hospital. And the parking area in the hospital is nightmare! On average, during peak hours, I had to drive up and down the parking building for 2omins before I can secure a spot. Exhausted!

Thirdly, it is purely myself. But I will tell you that in my next (future) entry.

All of the above made my life somewhat miserable. Every day I just look forward to go home, hit the shower, put my head on the pillow and sleep. That is the only time I have to retreat. My house is a mess. TV pun tak sempat tgk, apatah lagi nak cuci baju, iron baju, kemas rumah, masak, etc.

Now I am back on track again, hopefully.

Looking forward to the long break end of this year. I’m not going anywhere pun. Just wanted to wrap myself in blanket, and watch endless movie in the comfort of my home.

I promise you more updates soon... more entry, more story
