Went for the KILL!

I'm ready to tell...

On the 3rd of September, about a week before Eid, I got the call I was waiting for for the past month. August was just a whole lot of question marks and guessing games about the job offer. But it finally came... Incidentally, I had another episode of bad migraines that day and it sure didn't help that it was in the middle of Ramadhan. So I got home with my MC slip and broke my fast and shortly after, my phone rang. OH JOY!!

So it began, my process... I went for my medical checkup all too quietly and waited excrutiatingly long for the results to come out about a week and a half after. WHOABOY! The company am going in checked up on me to make sure that the results are in. So when Monday, 20th September arrived (the clinic conveniently told me that the results would be ready then), I moved in for the kill. POW!

By 4.30pm that day, I was officially an outgoing employee. My boss tried the 'what if I counter-offer you' speech, the 'One of my biggest worries has come true', the 'I had plans for you... but I don't dare to promise anything', and the 'I'm losing one of my best people' speech. But I was unswayed. NO WAY, JOSE! When I make a decision to leave, I'll leave with conviction and I wouldn't turn back.

And you know what the best part is? I managed to beat the system. After carefully examining my contract with the company, I realised, I HAVE NO CONTRACT with the company. When they conveniently transferred me out to this hell hole from the shit hole, they made a boo boo by not giving me a brand new contract. So, I am only serving a month's notice off of my original contract, as opposed to the usual three. AND since I'm taking 2 weeks off for Perth PLUS I still have a few more days leave left as balance, I only have less than 2 weeks of worktime left. *woot woot*

It's a good thing that I have an interest in law and have studied a little of law before this, or else I would have totally missed that bit when I looked at my contract. It stands even in the courts and no fool here can touch me. WAHOOOO!!!!

ALHAMDULILLAH... THANK YOU ALLAH for giving me this 'REZEKI' to shift to another outfit. I LOVE YOU, ALLAH S.W.T!!

That's awesome news. And you're smart to check your contract and documents! Well done Zima! You had your eyes on the goal & you went for it - takes guts, you know ;)

Thanks Nora! I pray to Allah that this will all turn out great. God willing, I will continue to have the guts to go for gold each time. :D

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…
