Speculating June

It's a new month. HAPPY 1st of JUNE!

The new month brings the following:

Reading
I have new books...
- Read 'Life on the Refrigerator Door' by Alice Kuipers last night.
- Finally got a copy of 'P.S. I Love You' by Cecelia Ahern.
- Bought 'Perfect' by Sara Shepard.
- ...and did I ever mentioned that I found a copy of 'Love Letters of Great Men' recently? Yes, it has the infamous love letter by Ludwig van Beethoven which was quoted in the 'Sex and the City' movie: Ever Thine, Ever Mine, Ever Ours.

Work
- One month without a manager leading us.
- End of the month, the coming of a new manager.
- Being an exhibitor, yet again, for the Company in the bi-annual industry exhibition.
- Working my arse off for the Company's new benefit scheme for staff.

Life
- Two male cousins' wedding in the coming weekend.
- One high school friend's wedding this Thursday (yes, I know...).
- One colleague/friend's engagement ceremony.
- Mak's 67th birthday!!

Maybe I should run the first of the Pancake Party series for Mak's birthday. I'd have to be really good at it come June 24th though. Hehehe.

On a seperate note, sometimes I can't help but wonder if I unintentionally did something that angered certain people. Family and friends in particular, of course. I wouldn't give a rat's ass if it were people I'd meet on the streets. Nonetheless, it's a quizzing thing that we're always so much nicer to strangers than we are to people we care about. Is it an automatic defense mechanism or just plain stupid psychology?

Lately, I've been feeling like I've done something wrong but I don't exactly know what. It's like I've been walking on eggshells without realising it. Suddenly, without warning, I would find myself... secluded or isolated from things that I was parte to initially. I'm just wondering... I know everyone has the right to include and exclude whoever they desire, that's a given. But was I excluded intentionally for something I said or did? Or maybe I just imagined things wrongly. Hmm... First speculation of the new month.

Anyways, I hope for the best for everyone this new month.

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…
