What happened to August?!

OMG peeps!! It's already SEPTEMBER 3rd! Should I be freaking out? Bestie's wedding is about a month away and I still need to do a few things to prepare for the trip to windy Perth...

- Get travelling visa
- Find a dress as MOH - It's now in the making. Sent the materials to the Tailor
- Find shoes (maybe)
- RSVP the wedding!!! - Apparently I missed the deadline but I emailed the bride. Ngee! Sorry babe.. :P
- Officially apply for my leave (verbally got the consent so am not too worried about this)
- Print out my e-ticket
- Mental & physical preparation for the trip on a no-frills flight
- Finalise 'Hen Party' plan
- Change currencies (GAAHHH!)
- Get SUPER DUPER excited - an understatement, for sure!
- Try to lose a little bit more weight (although it may have plateaued for the time being)
- Clear up any pending work/handover work - Handover EVERYTHING as I'm saying sayonara for good! Muahaha.
- Plan what I want to do while in Perth. Will be there for TWO WEEKS, yo! WAHOO!

Thing is, this month will be just as crazy mad packed and busy like July and August. Next week is Eid, and to tell you honestly... I AM NOT PREPARED FOR THAT EITHER! This weekend, I will commit to GETTING things for both Eid and Mae's wedding, by hook or by crook.

And then this month is also Cikinot's birthday and we will be doing something to celebrate that. And then an ex-schoolmate's wedding which I'm seriously considering to go because she took the trouble actually sending the invitation card to me. And then with work there's madness abrewing because of appraisal time (I'm feeling a strong urge to run around like a headless chook right about now). And then I am pretty sure that Alphatin will have an engagement ceremony with Jasper some time this month too. And then there's family things as well to balance up. And then before long, I'll be flying off to Perth. YAHOOOOO!!!!

GOD, please let me have enough time and strength to do all this and keep my sanity at the same time. Amin... :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…
