In the August Pipeline

Waaaa! It's already the middle of August. Where have the time gone?! It was only the previous entry that it was beginning of the month. Suddenly, we're faced with 17th August. Gaaah!!

But then, when I see 17th August, I know what it means too. It means there's only THREE days before we head out to Lumut to see our dear friend Liza J (glamour name Makbed). Miahahahaha!!! By the way, in case you didn't catch on 'we' here refers to Alphatin, Jasper, Cikinot and moi. :D

So anyways, life has not been without dramas. There is simply A LOT that has unravelled especially in the Alphatin and Jasper episode. All I could say is, whatever it is they have mine and Makbed's support. They have decided to... TIE THE KNOT!!!! Dum, dum, da-daaa (wedding march theme). And it comes with a whole baggage of drama for the two of them. HOWEVER, the determination is there and I'm confident they will get through all the havoc created by others. So ALL THE BEST TO THEM! More updates on the upcoming nuptials. Ngeee! :D

Next, ahaa! Remember the thing that I'm counting down to? Remember when I went all out for my little weight loss project. I think it's time. It's TIME to reveal...

A little something came in the mail from Australia. And it contains...

A wedding invitation! My bestie's getting married!!!!! *woot woot*

Now, if Alphatin marries by December this year (Insyaallah), TWO of my besties will be tying the knot and starting a new life. Wahooooo!!!!!!

Another thing that is in the pipeline for little ol' me is...

I'm taking the plunge to upgrade my ride. *Woot woot*

This has been going on for a while now but until recently I was never really serious about it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my car. To bits! But I think it's time that I get going with my self-fulfilling prophecy and get a better, more economical and efficient, more reliable, Japanese car rather than putting on the pressure on my poor local car... :(

Now, I even have a date that I will get my 'new' car - 28th August 2010. Looks like my family and I will get a chance to celebrate Eid in a NEW car. Wahooo!!!!

Aside from that, Ramadhan is going smooth so far. I pray it goes the same for everyone too. Have a great one!!

Well, it's a 2nd hand car so it's technically 'new'. Hehehe! Have decided on a Toyota Vios, 2005model. :D

Don't worry, I'll definitely be taking piccas of my new baby. Ngee!

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 …
