I closed Chapter 2009 & opened Chapter 2010

This was how I ended 2009...

And this was how I began 2010...

Suffice to say, the last day of 2009 was hectic to say the least. What with rushing through settling shite at work complete with drama here and there, I was just more than glad to moozy outta there and say good riddance to work life in 2009. Thankfully, my old buddy from back in the school days contacted me about 2 days before new year's eve and made plans for a movie marathon. So at the back of my mind, I made fairly sure that the thought of happier after hours to come stayed all througout the day while at work.

Made my way to One Utama and met up with Phatin and her friend Shikin. We started with dinner first in Carl's Jr. and rushed to get to the cinema for Cirque Du Freak. After that, we sort of fooled around with the camera waiting for our next movie at the stroke of midnight hoping to catch the fireworks before that. So we hung out as time ticks by, took pictures, laughed our asses off and then went totally nutso (I believe due to fatigue from the LOOONG day and excitement).

Then... fireworks! Yayy!!!

When we finally made our way to the cinema, we were like excited little girls. Henceforth, we had giggling fits, sleepiness, even MORE craziness, loud exclamations during the movie and more sleepiness. By the time the movie ended and we were paying for the parking ticket at the autopay station, we could barely make a) a coherent sentence, b) properly focus on putting the money in the slot, c) remember that the new year had begun.

All in all, it was an absolutely fun night indeed!

(that was our toast for the new year. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!)

How was Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant? Any good?

Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant was very funny at the beginning. Then it started to get a little choppy IMO. Maybe they ran out of time/budget to properly explain/show things. Still an okay movie to watch. :)

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 …
