A Happy Grown Up, I am!

It's my birthday!!! Hahaha. Talk about self-love, right?

Anyways, for yet another year I am spending my birthday working my arse off because I couldn't get time off of work. And it was a good day until the powerpoint file I was editing decided to make my life a living hell. Thanks for sending me a corrupted file to start with operations office! Sheesh.

So much drama there because I truly was enjoying my day today.

Whoawell, it's now no longer in my court because I've sent the editted file to them to do whatever they want. See... that's probably why I should have just gone to the operations office this week instead of staying behind. At least there'd be a win-win situation created. They'd get the 'problem' with the slides fixed there and then AND I'd get my date with my eye-candy. Hahaha!

Okay, since it's almost 5pm now, which marks the END OF THE OFFICIAL WORK DAY, I think I'm going to decide that today is a GREAT day despite the tech drama. I'd say more than 70% of it was a great day at work. I honestly could not stop being happy because there's just positivity all around.

Managed to catch a few goss with Alphatin and Makbed dearie after what seems like aeons! And we discussed my eye-candy. Wahoo!! So I decided to grab the bull by the balls and make the move that I was so chicken shit about - CALL HIM! Muahahaha. That's what I did and I have to say, it was the best thing I did for myself today because it has been rewarding ever since. :)

Did I mention that Alphatin gave me a birthday dinner last night? SO MUCH FUN and I also had cake and a chorus of birthday singers. YAYY!! Am lucky or what...

Me and my cake! :D

Making faces

Magnifying our making faces session. Haha!

Plus, not to mention the ABUNDANCE of birthday wishes from my friends and family. Even though my birthday this year falls right smack in the middle of the work week, I am transported to my birthday weekend fantasy thanks to all my lovely people. Even food boy (who btw, I have decided to shelf again) sent some well wishes via FB. Well, most of the birthday wish are from FB anyways. Sigh... Happy! *beams*

A lovely birthday card from my parents <3
Hope everyone had as much a great day as I have. *Muahs & hugs*

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…
