Things that start with 'Happy'

Whoa... look at the 'cobwebs' in this place! It's been close to THREE months since my last update. Thankfully not a single part of my life has been put on hold except the updating bit. Haha.

So hello again everyone... How have y'all been doin? Happy Christmas; Happy New Year; Happy Birthday to Mae (my bestest friend in the www Whole Wide World!!); Happy Chinese New Year; and soon-to-be Happy Valentine's Day; and Happy Maulidur Rasul. Hope y'all are fan-freakin-tastic and life is just giving you all the goodness and wholesomeness it has to offer.

This year, 2011, even though has only 'barely' begun (yes, I know... it's already February) has been SO full that I felt like it's MORE than February. I mean time is moving so fast and so sudden that I hardly seem to have any time to breathe! But at the same time, I am living... like really enjoying life. My life has restarted somehow. My job is getting more and more interesting and challenging daily; I feel like I'm that sponge I once was at (ehem) 21 when I had my very first job. I feel energised and renewed that it's liberating. I feel like anything that I put my mind and heart to is possible. It's a world of huge possibilities and for the first time in a long time, I wake up day after day with excitement and exhilaration over what's in store. I have resuscitated the workaholic in me it's RIDICULOUS! And the best part is, I can still laugh and have fun in the process.

I also have made new friends along the way. Good, fun people who make my day-to-day interesting. I'd say they're the finishing touches to the goodness of my new job. Good company. I am grateful for my old friends who love me for who I am, and my family who... well I guess they just HAVE to love me coz I'm their flesh and blood. Haha! But seriously, my heart, right now, is just full of good feeling, which makes up for all and any of, or lack thereof, of boyfriends or lovers. I want to be in this state long, long time, and I want to remember this so that if and when I start to have my down days, I can read back on this and be super grateful. InsyaAllah and AMIN...

Now... I know I have LOADS to update on, especially on past happenings which were really HAPPENING to the max. But time doesn't permit me to right now. The very ONE thing that I just HAVE to update on would be my best friend's wedding back in TEN-TEN-TENNNN!!! (yeah... I wrote about this some time in November - I think - but it's not complete now issit?!). I'll try to put up some pictorial updates on this and hopefully that will be the start of my regular updating again. Whatever it is, I must update BEFORE the next time I travel to Perth, which should be (GOD-willing) in late August or early September. Hehehe...

And if I feel like it, I'll even tell about some 'fellas' that I met who have caught my interest. Haha! At this point my friends would probably say, "There she goes again with the next crush in her plate. When will she ever get a boyfriend?!". If only I was the risk-taking type right, peeps? :p

Okay, so this (ehem) 25 year old lady still needs a bit of growing up to do. But am determined to make my life an adventure every single day. I work hard, I play hard and GOD-willing, pray hard!

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 …
