Closing Ramadhan to welcome Syawal

It's the LAST DAY of Ramadhan 2011. Can you believe how time flies?? The last entry I put in was when I was heading for my Tioman roadtrip! Plenty have occured since then one of which is the holy month. It just went by in a breeze, I barely even had time to fully grasp it. Alhamdulillah, this Ramadhan has been good albeit some unavoidable challenges surrounding work. Nevertheless, I wouldn't have traded it for anything in the world. Every year, I honestly always look forward to Ramadhan when peace seem to overcome me. And it is not without sadness that bid adieu to it again to make way for Syawal. I hope and pray I'll see it again next year. I'd want to invest in it better than this year, InsyaAllah.

So since it's the last day of Ramadhan, I'd like to wish all of you "Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir & Batin" from the bottom of my heart. If I had intentionally or unintentionally, consciously or unconsciously hurt you or offended you, I truly apologise. I am weak as a human being and only you and Allah may forgive me for all my setbacks.

So have a wonderful celebration, stay safe and see you in September 2011, with many more good things to come, InsyaAllah.

Lotsa love. <3

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…

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 1

Hello Blogosphere!!
It is I, back from an unintended retirement from the blogging world. Actually, I never did intend to hang my blogging shoes as I did my dancing shoes. But after what seems like (a) lack of time due to work, and (b) lack of inspiration to write about things without sounding like I'm whining (phew... that was a long one), I decided that after a year of hiatus, it is high time to put some thoughts to ... what do you call this?... not paper... blank blog page? Well just type out some thoughts.
So here we go. 
Starting now.
Right. Now.
Ok. Any moment now. .

. . . .
Maybe I need to eat first. Haha!
