Touchbase + arvo update

Sorry I haven't been 'good' at updating. I don't have much of an excuse really. Not that I didn't try to put in a post but it was just timing I suppose.

I'm still here. Just got back from a rather nice family island getaway (tell you more about a little later) and trying to kick off this sickness I've been having since before the vacation (the flu and I don't mix well). For now, I'm back at work and will be trying to get into the groove. More updates to come!

Till then, hope everyone's doing fine.


Update @ 3.02pm

You know, I was feeling crappy mainly due to my flu today. But the best part of this whole crappy s**te (not going to directly swear coz I'm fasting today) was that I somehow managed to 'confront' one of my "friends" in the office on why she is not talking to me. I swear, it was like I did not exist! The funny thing was this... apparently one day about TWO WEEKS ago, I spoke to her about work in a loud voice and she has it in her mind that I 'tengking' (scolded) her. I don't remember being angry at her so it was definitely news to me! Because of that, she did not want to talk to me and I suppose she decided she hates me for it too. My GOD! What are we, in highschool?!

At first I said I was sorry if I did offend her but after that... you know, I just came to a point of not-caring-anymore. I felt upset that SHE of all people (one of the CLOSEST friends I made at work - and I rarely make friends at work) would mistake my loudness for a scolding. It's not like she hasn't seen how loud I could be! That was when I said these words to her...

"Next time, if you are angry at me for something, I would appreciate you actually telling me about it and not just keeping quiet. I don't like that! I thought we were friends and I'm sorry if I offended you. But if you don't want to be friends, then it does not matter to me at all."

And with that, the friendship sank like the very Titanic. I truly canNOT be bothered anymore with people who think oh-so-highly of themselves enough to think that they are not to be spoken to in a loud voice. I grew tired of these nonsense way back in highschool k! Please, keep your sensitivity at home where it belongs. DO NOT BRING IT IN MY FACE WHILE WE'RE AT WORK. I am not here to cater to your whims and fancies.

My point is, dear friends, if I did do anything wrong, please by all means tell me what I did wrong. I may not have done it knowingly. If you know me, you know how oblivious I can be. But do not, I beg of you, do NOT go around talking behind my back while ignoring me AND while I, like an idiot, treat you like my good friend thinking that there's nothing wrong between us. I would like to repair the bridge while there's still hope left but please do not take it for granted because as far as I'm concerned, I am not a doormat!

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…
