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…

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…
