As I Ponder...

Sometimes, the everyday things in life that happens makes me wonder if it would lead to something bigger. Grander. Destiny.

My family and friends know me for one who has never really paid much heed about matters of the heart. Preferring to be nonchalant about it most of the time. They also know that in all my 26 years of life, I've never even been in a romantic relationship with a man. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about... love.

The last few... I'm not even sure when it actually began, someone's been giving me some particular attention. Rather unexpectedly, I must confess. The kind of attention that is rather pleasant. Courtingly. Could it be that I've met someone?

I really can't say. At least not yet.

It started with him indicating that he'd ask me out some time, although until today he hasn't asked me for my digits. Then he packed me food which he bought at lunch time but passed to me through a medium. And yesterday, he did it again and openly gave the food to me in front of colleagues. He also called my extension to ask how I was after I returned to work from being sick. Seeming concerned or perhaps just making conversation before getting down to business.

Anyways, I'll keep writing about it until it gets figured out. That's pretty much how things get sorted out for me. When it's written down or drawn out, until I get to the point when it's crystal clear.

Talking to peeps and family help too but sometimes, we don't get to hear what we want/need to hear and needed to rely on ourselves to decide in the end. So I'll take the independent road for now. Sort of to leave it to fate but see if I could make a destiny. And it's not just about love, but also life in general too.

Nevertheless, I still need you, my friend. You're still important in my life. Coz you make it bigger and grander in every way.

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…
