One week later

Wouldn't you know it... it's already APRIL! Where did the time go? It seemed like time just went by in a blur. A lot of things happening all at one time, making me sometimes confused over what day it was! Scary innit?

Anyways, the past close to two weeks since my last post have been rather hectic. It's already Friday the 3rd of April 2009. Three days into the new month and I still haven't got a clue. Meh!

So things that happened since the last post... Not too much because it staggers.

1) Office movement exercise - Yes, the third time I've move offices since joining this group in 2007. Can you believe that?! I shouldn't complain so much since I haven't really been here as long as some people and have moved as many times as they have in the past. I have been told that this company has been moving offices for more than five times already. Amazingly enough, it's always within the same vicinity as we are right now. The good thing about this move is, we're still in the same building but only in different floors. Now, we're just trying to settle in and get in the groove of working again. Btw, did I mention there is no air conditioning in the new place? That is to say, the air conditioning is not activated yet because of some... problems. *hint hint*

So, here we are working in swelteringly negative conditions trying to give the best that we can. Stupid much! Thank GOD it's Friday.

2) Annual Dinner plans - The company's about to have an annual dinner that comes once in a blue moon... It's tomorrow night. And guess what. I'm in the organising committee - not by choice, I might add. More like sucked into it by gravitational pull. This is what happens when you can't say 'NO'. When I say organising committee, it means I have to be involved in the dance performance, be the opening emcee, write the speech for the Chairman, go for dance practices and waste away my Saturday from morning until late at night tomorrow. Aiya... But I hope that it will be enjoyable that I won't even mind it. Besides, I have a nice dress that I am really excited to wear. Yay!!

So add all this and the office movement, you will get exhaustion, inability to sleep well and brain drain (because I also need brain power and energy to do the normal work that requires thinking. Dayum!).

I've also got some news... :)

One of my applications, you know the one that requires me to take an assessment test with maths in them (yeah, that one), is about to fruit into an interview. YES!! I know this for a fact because the HR people called me up and told me this, and hopefully by next week they will contact me to set an interview with me. So friends, please pray for me and with me and keep your fingers crossed. GOD, please... Thank you. Amin...

More updates to come with pictures. Ta!

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 …
