The Night of 'Forced Insomnia'

It's the wee small hours of the morning and despite being tired from spending the whole day walking around town with my siblings and suffering through one of the worst times of the month (OI!), I find myself unable to sleep! Although, I'm pretty sure if I were to lay my head down hugging this hot water bottle to ease this female 'curse' I'm having, I would be asleep in a second. But then if sleeping means me waking up in the middle of the night with terrible pains mixed with the atrophy of sleep, then count me out. This may be the worst way for me to handle this situation but if I can be awake most of the night and skip the struggle and discomfort in unconsciousness, I'd go for it and gladly pay for it later (somehow I think I will regret saying that).

Who knows, maybe after this blog entry and a series of 'Phineas and Ferb', I'll drag meself upstairs and pull over the covers for some rest. It is already 4am! Heh... I'm just glad tomorrow is still a weekend. Eventhough it's the dreaded Sunday... which will bring Monday. AUUGGGHHHhh!!

Okay Zima, let's not get ahead of yourself. I seriously need to learn to relax and enjoy the moment rather than think of potential dreads the workdays would bring.

Anyways, I think it's only fair to update this bit... I am on a job hunt - okay more like a career hunt. Better? And I know we're in the middle of an economic crisis and a job change should be the LAST thing on anyone's mind, especially one who has a job, but this is important to me so that I can feel like my talents will be put to better use. I hope it will happen soon because after three years of being in my line and the many complains and tears of unhappiness I've expresed, I have decided to just take a chance. No risk, no gain right? It's no picnic but I am striving on.

On this note, if things get on well, I shall update the progress and hopefully start having more excitement in life and at work. *Countless prayers!*

Okay, I'm gonna put in more hot water in this hot water bottle and get on to la-la land... *Yawn* More updates to come!

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…
