Alphatin & Jasper: United At Last

It's July and 2011 is maintaining that good feeling it brought in since January.

One of the most recent happenings for July is... my other good friend got married!! Alphatin and Jasper finally took the plunge for happily-ever-after. So she has joined the likes of Mae & James, Pinkstar & Shark, Yilei & Han, and oh-so-many of my other friends who tied the knot. This wedding is equally as memorable for me as it was for Mae & James' because...
  1. Alphatin is my other best friend in the whole wide world apart from Mae (I only consider these two as my best friends even from schooldays);
  2. I have been given the honour to do Alphatin's makeup for her akad nikah;
  3. She selected me to drive the newlyweds to the reception venue in my humble little Phoenix;
  4. She gave me the honour to bless her wedding among her family members;
  5. Her family reserved a seat for me at the main table to dine with the newlyweds among VIPs.
I really feel blessed for having really good friends. Brings back wonderful memories of Mae's wedding last October. To be able to be involved in my best friends' weddings is truly magical to me. Of course, with the happiness of their weddings, I have to admit that I do feel a little sentimental and sad. But only because we've moved on to greater and bigger things in life. I hope that I would take that journey some time in the future too.

Speaking of which, I'm wondering how everyone would react if I do end up with someone of different double R's. I'm 27-years-old and have NEVER had a malay chap interested in me enough to pursue me. Let alone make the first move on. So how??!? Did I sabotage myself intentionally but subconsciously so that no malay guys would be brave enough to get close to me? Sigh... I wished I don't have this internal dilemma. It was so easy for my sisters and girlfriends who knew that they'd only be interested in malay men. But for me, I've always been intrigued/attracted to non-malay men... BECAUSE THEY'RE ALWAYS BRAVE ENOUGH TO APPROACH ME FIRST. Sigh... I probably did this to myself. So am thinking, maybe I should save myself the trouble and just... not settle down... right??

Thing is... I think I... like someone... who is DECIDEDLY and UNDENIABLY of different double R's and even C=citizenship. Hahahahaha... yeah, see how much trouble/complication I could be in? I don't want to jump the gun since nothing has happened between us... nor do I even know for sure that things could happen between us... or is ever going to happen between us... (Sheesh... this is depressing), but in case it does... Wow! I'll need to go on a hiatus to think things through, for sure. This would definitely be HEAVYDUTY.

Sigh... I need help.

Anyways, enough ramblings from me. Here's the newlyweds all smiles and happiness.

Congratulations, Alphatin & Jasper!

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…
