Ships of Friends...

Can we be a little serious now?

I don't get it. I have friends who think I am neglecting and forgetting them? Just because I have been hanging out with my good friend from SCHOOL and her BROTHER and COUSIN and making some new friends along the way. haih... sorry. Really, I'm just sorry.

Maybe I did get caught up on hanging out with them for the past few weeks. But it's only because we had lots of things happening in succession with each other. It all started with the Twilight thing anyways. But to say that about my schoolmate is not true at all. We have been hanging out from time to time. Just not as often as this past 2 months.

I didn't know that I can't have fun with others. I thought we understood that. That eventhough we don't see each other so often that we'd still remain good friends. That you're free to go on with your life and I am free to go on with mine. Pick up where we left off as if no time has passed whenever we do meet up. Be spontaneous. I don't complain when you only see your mates eventhough I also know some of them. I don't complain when you have new friends and new activities that you go for. I am happy for you. I just hope you would be happy for me without making me feel like such a jerk.

The last thing I want is to lose the friendship that we have over a silly thing like this. I have plenty of room in my heart for friendships. Yours would always be dear to me. Please, please, please. I don't want to lose you over this. It hardly seems worth it.

OMG! How silly of people. I meet up with my best friends like once every 3 or 4 months and that does not mean we neglect each other - We just have different schedules now.

Please, these so-called friends who say that you're neglecting them are being silly and IMHO are attention whores. Let them dwell in their own immaturity. You do not need hangers on like these who'll just sap you of your positive energy.

Real friends understand.

Thanks babe. I just felt like crap. As if I haven't enough things going on in my plate, I also have to worry about this. I mean maybe I'm imagining it but I have a strong feeling I'm not. And my friends really did feel this way, well this post is to tell them they don't have to.

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…
