Reverse and Rewind

I have not been a very good camper when it comes to updating my blog of late. I'd say it's partly because my lappy is still somewhat under the weather (even after it's been repaired) because I can't connect to the internet at home. I figured since the modem's led is okay and the computer id now able to detect my USB Lan converter, it must be the lan cable that is problematic. Yes, the Lan port is fried and unsaveable but thank goodness for the converter.
In the course of repairing my lappy, I've also made friends with the computer shop guys! All thanks to Dieselfire. Muahaha!! Those guys are really helpful. I don't know much about computers but whatever it was, they totally turned my 6-year-old laptop around. :D

Anyways, like I said, a few things have happened in the course of one month or so. So here is a pictorial blog entry (?) to help summarise the events...

Reverse and rewind to end of March 2009...

Office movement...

8.30pm - 28th March 2009 (Earth Hour in the Rozalli Household)

Finally lit up my Nutcracker candle which I got for Christmas 2004! Yay... Now it's headless post-Earth Hour. :P

Me! - during Earth Hour :P

4th April 2009

Company Annual Dinner - I was dressed like in the 70's, no?

Me in my dance outfit - Yep, I danced on stage for entertainment sake.

JJ yo!

Me again...

More me... :P

Post office movement/Annual Dinner - New workstation with a view! :D

These are pictures only from the end of March to the early days of April. The second half of April was a little mellow consisting of me falling ill, going home to Hippo to be with my parents post-40th Anniversary and getting a new toy which I love, love, LOOVE! ;)

Didn't exactly take any pics on those things as my camera has died since just after the annual dinner. I knoww... I should recharge the batteries soon. Have to be prepared to snap pics in a moments notice! Hehe.

More good things to come, I hope!

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…

Life After... Pt4

"I want to see the trees."
Those were his last words to me on 26th May 2017. The day when we discovered Mum's cancer, the day Dad did his darnedest during physio at his bed just to get on the wheelchair, the day we took him for a little walk around the ward, the day before the 1st of Ramadhan... The day he had a stroke.
We would never hear his voice again after that day until Allah called him home on 16th June 2017, 21st Ramadhan 1438H. 
There were a few things that he wanted, which I failed to fulfill. For breakfast the day he was first brought to the hospital in Ipoh, he had told me he wanted fresh milk from Salim's Restaurant - I'm sure with 3 teaspoons of sugar for that perfect taste. While he was in the ward, he wanted some Miso soup from Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant, but logistically it was hard to get to the nearest Rakuzen and I only got him some Miso soup from Sushi Zanmai. He wanted some jelly when he was sitting on the wheelchair - I told him we would b…

Life After... Pt 2

Dad was admitted in the ICU on the morning of 30th April. He had a severe case of pneumonia (and no one knew how things escalated so quickly to acute pneumonia save for Allah). When we first arrived at the Accident & Emergency, the attending physician who is a Cardiologist specially assigned by a friend’s father as the Director of the hospital, explained that all they needed to do was to give Dad antibiotics and nebulizer. Dad was supposed to be in the ICU for three days for monitoring and treatment, and it was expected that he would be right as rain. Although the Doctor did say that there was a possibility that Dad may be intubated just to help him recover better. I didn’t know it then but it turned out that “intubated” meant Dad would be sedated. So when he was wheeled to his bay at the ICU and suddenly the Doctor said there was a complication, I felt an awful feeling at the pit of my stomach. Dad’s case was much more complex than a normal pneumonia case would be because he was …
