Thought birth

Help me stay awake!!

After enjoying 4 days of no work, sleeping in late, doing spontaneous activites and going to bed late at night, I am once again at my workstation trying to do some work and hoping that the first day back is not so hectic and mad. So far, thankfully, it's been good. I hope it stays this way for the rest of the day until closing time. Yes, I am unenthusiastic about starting the day. Simply because, I am just not a morning person!!

I know... I have to change this habit. Seriously though, I usually function a whole lot better if I can wake up at like 8 or 9am and just work till late at night. That's probably why I sometimes believe that I am not suited to working in a usual "9 to 5" environment or even be in my line of work. It makes me sound so selfish to want my weekends and sleep in late at the same time. But one can wish, right?

I know what people would normally say, "If you want that, be your own boss!" Yes, I get the picture. My answer - I'm working on it! I just have to figure out my "strategic talent" that would help me do just that. Hopefully, I'll figure out something that I really can sink my teeth into soon. As I was driving to work this morning, I did think of something interesting to do as a business and career later in life (or maybe not so much later in life). The details are still a little vague right now because the business is not really very well known in the local scene (I think) and it will involve lots of capital investments and risks, but if done correctly can be hugely profitable. Three simple words to decribe this is... location, location and... location (with a little twist). Let me swim this through my noodle and research first before I go into deeper.

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…
