How time flies. Before you realise it, it's already the last week of Ramadhan. I'm going to really miss it. It's been a nice Ramadhan so far. The only sad bit is that I haven't been able to fast as much as I wanted to. The perils of being a woman and being unlucky to have been struck twice in a month. *sigh* But enough of that. I have to keep a positive mind. Insyaallah, by the time Syawal comes, I will be clean and ready for Eid Payers.
I have a few things to update.
First, my computer is all fixed and working like a charm. IT LIVES!! I was really excited that it didn't cost as much as I thought it would be to fix it and I needn't buy a new computer AND everything in the hard disk is retrievable. YAY!
Second, the internet at home is no longer out of commission. After a thorough check with Comp Doc at his shop and countless calls to the ISP's tech support, I almost gave up hope when the moment I plug in at home and it still wouldn't work. But by the grace of GOD, I got an inspiration to test out the connection at another telephone port upstairs and VOILA! It was up and running and more efficient than ever. I was happy, happy, happy!
Third, Buffy's wedding is coming up in EIGHTEEN DAYS!!! Wait, Eid comes first in 5 days (how can I ever forget that?!). But seriously, I have been forgetting Eid because of Buffy's wedding. Sad but true... Anyways, I think I'm almost all set for both events. I finally bought a ready-made kurung (which I NEVER DO because I could never find a size that fits. Somehow, miraculously I found one that fitted perfectly!). And my outfits for Buffy's wedding are also complete - I just have to pick them up from the tailor. The only things I HAVEN'T got done are:
- Road signages for Buffy's wedding
- The emceeing script (GAH!!)
- My appreciation speech (EEP!!)
I've also been given additional tasks as makeup artist for Buffy's 'Malam Berinai' and Cake Cutting Ceremony. But we haven't practiced the looks yet. Will have to find some time to do that this Eid.
Fourth & fifth, behold my culinary delights for the past two weekends! *Sorry for the crappy pictures. They were taken with a mobile cam*

That's it for now. Will be updating more often now that the internet's back on at home. Have a blessed last week of Ramadhan y'all!
