Affairs I've had from May to June

The weekends from Mother's Day in May until now have been quite the family affair. We've had lunches, dinners, weddings, after weddings, after weddings and the best part is, June is only just beginning (technically speaking).

Behold... evidence of human activity in my life.


On Mummy's Day - despite Mak being very busy with her NGO's charity dinner that night, we managed to hijack her for some scrumptious dim sum lunch.


Mak reading our 'Scrapbook' Mother's Day card aloud for everyone to hear. Clearly Bapak was amused.


Later that night, the big dinner Mak's been stressing about

The children showing support to Mak. GO MAK GO!

One of Mak's many contributions to the NGO. Spot the name?
Hint: She's number 2 on 'Persiapan Tempat' (Venue arrangement)


And that night we were entertained by 'Evergreen' performers from the 60's and 70's


Then, things quieted down a little for the next couple of weekends. A few things did happen but I didn't have my camera with me. One of the things I do remember happening was a mini-family gathering with my immediate family where Mak paid for dinner. Actually, she just didn't feel like cooking. Hehe! And after that a house-warming kenduri at a cousin's place on the 30th of May.

The following day, this happened...


My cousin's married, yo! AND he's my age...



The wife greeting the husband home. Aww...



Can you tell that it's HOT???


Yes, you can. :P

A few days after that... on a Thursday night.

I went to yet another wedding (for realz!). This time of my high-school friend who I have not seen in YEARS! Amazingly enough meeting some old faces from school was very pleasant and a lot of fun. We have all grown up. Some were married, some getting married, some with babies, and some with babies on the way.


A few classmates and form mates


Shairil: I used to sit next to her in Islamic Studies class and copy off of her. Really smart. Figures she's a doctor now. :P


Izyan: This woman is now a lawyer. I've known her since primary school.


The beautiful bride extremely excited seeing our us at our table just waiting for her!


I grabbed her the moment I had a chance.

Part 2 would have more happenings featuring a double wedding celebration and more pictures of Ameerul Hussin. Wanna know what he's up to? Stick around...

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…
