The one with... food for thought.

A colleague forwarded me this one very interesting email, of which I would like to share it here. After all, it's Friday + freezing cold + sleepy + weekend is starting (plus it's payday wee hoo!!) = lazy to do work.

Ouuhhh will you just cut me some slack!

:)

Anyway, here goes.

A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one is still in use while the other disused. Only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track.

The train is coming, and you are just beside the track interchange. You can make the train changes its course to the disused track and save most of the kids.

However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the disused track would be sacrificed.
Or would you rather let the train go its way?

Let's take a pause to think what kind of decision we could make....

Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child. You might think the same way, I guess...

Exactly, to save most of the children at the expense of only one child was rational decision most people would make, morally and emotionally.

But, have you ever thought that the child choosing to play on the disused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?

Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was.

This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday. In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society -- the minority is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted and knowledgeable the minority are.

The child who chose not to play with the rest on the operational track was sidelined. And in the case he was sacrificed, no one would shed a tear for him.

The great critic Leo Velski Julian who told the story said he would not try to change the course of the train because he believed that the kids playing on the operational track should have known very well that track was still in use, and that they should have run away if they heard the train's sirens.. If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he never thought the train could come over to that track!

Moreover, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe. If the train was diverted to the track, we could put the lives of all passengers on board at stake! And in your attempt to save a few kids by sacrificing one child, you might end up sacrificing hundreds of people to save these few kids.

While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may not realize that hasty decisions may not always be the right one.

'Remember that what's right isn't always popular..... and what's popular isn't always right.'

Interesting, no?

Well to me this is rather a spot on. I remember entering the working world 5 years back, with the (naïve) thought -- I'll just do what I need to do / just mind my own business / to heck with other people and the office politics -- but thing is the world doesn't revolve around you and only you.

You just cannot be alone. You won't survive. Yes performance matters, but.. entah. I don't know how to put this. Like, kena pandai2 bawak diri lah okey to survive. Just like how my boss always told me whenever there's a new challenge -- You just gotta swim if you gotta swim. Otherwise you will die drowning.

But whatever it is, please.. don't be a freaking fake and such a suck-up... can?!

That, is plain annoying. *puke*

Anyway, I was once told -- everyone is not indispensable.. *ouchh!* =(

Renung2 kannnn.. dannnn.. selamat beramalllllll. Okie dokie people enjoy your weekend!!~* :)

The one with... mentua VS menantu.

Wahhhh tajuk tak boleh blah :P

Well the (thinking too much) point I'm trying to raise here is, in my case it's (bakal) mentua = satu kepala = (bakal) menantu.

Not that I'm complaining, I am definitely more than grateful and happy sukasangatsangat to have such a good sport soon-to-be MIL (wah I finally can use this abbreviation -- big deal!).. It's just that, when things get too comfortable and too complacent, more often than not I am somehow not 'guarded' in my action.. You know, bukan lah nak kena control and be someone else ke ape.. Cuma ye lah, you just need to have the line drawn somewhere kan.. At least when the MIL is being a liiiiittle bit difficult, you somehow will be more conscious with your behaviour you see.

The thing is whenever I have her around me, I have the tendency to let loose of myself! She is just SO pleasant to be with. So everytime I got back home I'll be ended up feeling so worried thinking what would she thinks of me after all the gelak ketawa and tepuk tampar I had with and let myself be towards her. Hmmm.


Though I know this worry-too-much thought is not necessary, but let's just be realistic here. We human tend to get annoyed easily kan if the other person, though how ngam and how well can blend in with us, reach to a point of "eh eh lebih2 pulak dia ni..". You get what I mean?

Ahh well. At least I know she's very straightforward come the things yang dia tak suka (ye, dah pernah kena tegur dah on certain something :P) so all I need to do is just to be more berpada2 next time.. Means kalau tak suka dia cakap, and if tak cakap ape2 means ok la tu... (kot? :P) Anyway I'll just savor this being-so-comfortable moment with her as much as it can last alrightey? Hopefully as forever as I'm gonna be with and love her son :)

On another unrelated note, I went to Nilai 3 with both fiancé and his mother last Sunday (I realllly hope it's gonna be the last time I had to go there -- the place is just so freaking hot thankyouverymuch) and had the chance to drop by at Farah's oh-so-nice new crib.. Just so happened her mother was there too. Had a really good time catching up with the 2 of them (we are friends since standard 5) and touring around her new house.. A 22 x 75 double storey terrace house with a price below than RM200k -- how am I not green with envy? Huhu.. Kat KL ni, where gotttttt.

Anyway Farah I am so happy for you, thanks for having us the other day, and I will definitely come again.. Perhaps when your baby boy has popped out huh? ;)

Ok lah, it's time to watch Intan now =) Till later~*

The one with... general ramblings.

  • I had to go to JB yesterday, alone and it was my first time boarding Firefly because both Air Asia & MAS were fully booked. I had no expectation whatsoever, all I've ever heard was about the plane being so small. So yes the plane was a bit small as compared to the other two but rather I had quite a pleasant journey to and fro -- no hassle, assigned seating, being served with muffin & a drink and the flight was on time. Only thing was maybe because the plane was small, langgar awan sikit2 pun you can feel it -- now that's a bit scary to me!

  • As always my weekend since February has been a bit busy with my wedding preps, this weekend is no exception. Well, it's not that Kerol & I have like A LOT of things to do per se, it was more like we are taking things one by one, on our sweet time. So I might sound as if I am doing a lot for the W day, no it's not. One weekend perhaps was spent to tick 1 or 2 things off the list only.. =) The clock is ticking, yes we know... but entah.. our chill pills are still working I guess :P We shall see come mid-April later, especially when I deal with mak andam re my wedding dress nanti.. SO far I heard that's the most dramatic part about the whole pre-wedding stuff.. Huhu..

  • Oh Erin told me about this International Gold & Jewellery Fair 2009, so both Kerol & I went to KL Convention Centre today to have a look, see whether any bling-bling worth buying. But we were dissapointed by the fact that we didn't follow the dress code.. YES there's a dress code to observe!! And mind you we had to fill in a registration form and paid a RM10 entrance fee ye.. Haihhh, apa ingat pakai selipar takde duit nak beli diamond ka?? doink!~*

  • My dearest friend Tina has finally given birth! Everything happened so fast, the next thing I know her new bundle of joy has arrived.. Oh I am so happy for her. Though baby E (let Tina herself announce the baby's name ya?) was born pre-matured (8 months and 1 week), but thank God both the hot mama and the adorable baby are safe and healthy. Went to give her a visit earlier today at Hospital Selayang and as always I got all 'ngilu' and whatnot listening to the whole giving birth tell and tale.. *yiKes!* Tina was chirpy as ever, but I didn't get to see baby E yet for he was put in the incubator for observation still. Read here and here for more stories.

  • If there's a list of 'things I regret doing in life', watching this movie will definitely top the list without a doubt! *puKe* I owe Kerol an apology just because I insisted him to teman to watch it :P (ya ya you can pull a sour face and laugh at me now dear *buwek*)

  • I found Ayu's blog via my statcounter account, and she made me go all addicted with this thing called zahada riddles! huhu.. (To Ayu - Hi!! *waving* You are back to the blogging world :) I want to drop a word or two but your new blog has no place for that -- no place to comment, no shoutout box also. Just to let you know that I'm struggling to reach level 11, how can you reach level 44?? *impressive* huhu..)

Alritey people, guess that's all I have for now. Till later~* Nite2.

The one with... I hate this part right hereeeee.

It's 9pm and I am still in office.. and not proud of it.

*siGh*

The thing is...


  • I can't do my part yet as I am waiting for the other members from the team to pass theirs for me to have a look at.

  • While waiting for them, I can't do much also. Internet connection is limited, and I have no mood to do other work as I just want to get it done and deal with this one work first...PRONTO!

  • I sent my car to the workshop this morning, it was Kerol who drove me to work (which is very rare -- so I'm loving it! *smiLing hati berbunga2*).. But he hasn't been feeling well since yesterday, and today towards the end of office hour his flu got worsen so he's back at home already by now. Hmmm.. camno nak balik jap lagi ni?

  • Tomorrow I'm driving to Melaka for a meeting. It's gonna be a day trip journey and it's gonna be a presentation meeting with a difficult client.. Speaking out of experience, I foresee that I would have a problem to drive back nanti.. Hmmm.

  • I am now on a no-food-after-7pm diet (whoa!! :P) but dah kena stay back ni rasa stress pulak. Stress = lapar. Rasa macam boleh tahan lagi ni, tapi silap2 kang TER have a late night binge (not unusual). Air masak dah minum bercawan2 dah ni. Tapi tetap rasa lapar jugak ni. *Note to self - Don't call McD or Pizza okie dokie !!!!

The one with... Wedding preps with fiancé + Goku + Maya + Girlfriends = Great weekend.

Don’t know why these few days I found myself getting so tired easily. I did make sure that I get to have the 8 hours beauty sleep, yet it somehow didn’t work wonders the way I thought it would be.

That’s why though we know that we have lots of things to take care of come the weekend, somehow this weekend we just called for a break. Both Kerol and I decided to go through the weekend free & easy style.

Friday night – went to watch Dragonball Evolution. I don’t want to elaborate much for I don’t want to sound so poyo as if I’ve been a fan since day 1. Given that restriction, I’d thought the movie was nice and had all the right elements to spell entertainment. I know the fan would have to say otherwise (?), nevertheless, I’m sure everyone would be on the same page with me and agree that San-Goku is oh-so-kamehameha-cute!!!! Kan? Kan? =)

*pictures are the courtesy of Google, like obviously.

Going out at night after work doesn’t seem to fit anymore to the lifestyle of the aging 20 something us, so it was already 3.30pm when Kerol reached my house the next day on Saturday to go to Jalan TAR.. Quite late, we know.. *hehe* That’s why it didn’t catch us by surprise that we got stuck there under the heavy downpour as soon as we reached Jalan TAR… Did what we were supposed to do, then without both umbrella and patience, we decided to just go run under the heavy rain to get to the car.. It was far from romantic -- trust me, but it was fun! :P Alang2 dah soaking wet, we then decided to go to Kampung Baru pulak to have our late lunch. Again, another session of running to and fro under the heavy rain.. =)

As it was a free & easy weekend, we then decided to find a place with a free internet connection to do a research on something.. It was then suddenly I thought of one better place to go -- Famie & Muni’s crib! *gRin* Free internet connection and one thing for sure -- a cute baby! Thanks to Muni’s sis who updated her blog regarding the perKEMBANGAN of Maya Arissa, I was SO tempted to witness that myself :)

From then,

She has now grown into such a cute and chubby and adorable little girl!!! SO geram !! :)

*Pictures were of a low quality as it was an unplanned visit, so I didn't bring my camera. I used my phone's camera instead.

Today on Sunday, again we had another late start.. Went to the wedding of my childhood’s friend -- Hazreen.. Brought along my camera to capture the moment, especially that I have not seen her for 15 years! But it was such a bummer, didn’t realise that my camera was with low battery. *sheeshhh*. But thank God, I met Shah over there who was the photographer for the day.. :) Shah is Erin’s friend who took these pictures. So, I have no pictures with me with Hazreen now as he hasn’t given those to me yet -- that would be another entry then hah.

Left Hazreen’s wedding around 3pm to proceed with this one wedding preps related agenda. Did just that until 5.30pm, before I got back home and got changed to meet my girls Alin & Dayana! Met them at GE Mall and oh I had such a great time, and I meant REALLY great! *gRin* Thanks so much girls, especially you Alin… =)

Ahhh.. another great weekend.. Settled few stuff and such :’)

I'd better stop now and get the much needed sleep to savor the moment before Monday comes and kill ‘em all.

Till later~* :)

The one with... terpaksa berblog, again :P

  • ... sebab panas yang teramat kerana my office building is having some technical problems with the chiller and therefore, affected the central air-conditioning.
But always everytime in time like this, especially masa zaman belajar dulu, the question of "Which one is better -- no electricity or no water?" came popping up in my mind.

I used to, and will always choose -- i'ts better no electricity than no water.

Same goes everytime whenever I go for weddings, when it was fiercing hot.. the question goes "Which one is better -- panas terik or hujan lebat?"

And whenever I have flu and sneezing non-stop, I would think of "Which one is better -- selsema dan terbersin2 srot sret srot sret or sakit tekak dan terbatuk2 ohok ohok?"

Adakah saya the only one yang always think like this or I am not the only one here? :)

  • ... sebab panas hati dan sedih sedu sedan.

SiGh.

Guess I have no choice but to get back to work. May the force be with me.

Till later~*

Tuesday, 10 March 2009

The one with.. terpaksa..

Hoho terpaksa blog, coz I am like so freaking mengantok!

I couldn't sleep well last night, my thinking-too-much button was switched on without me asking for it, all at the wrong timing for the wrong(?) reasons!

And here I am feeling all grumpy at work, with so many things to rush out for. *siGh*

Saya mahu balik dan tidur....

Saya mahu bercuti..

Saya mahu.. saya mahu kahwin! Haha ok scratch that.

Saya mahu.. more money.. Kita punya banyak uwang...! Kita punya banyak uwang..! (Siapa boleh teka, dialog cerita apa? :P)

Saya mahu.. saya mahu tahu apakah status baju sanding saya.. Tapi Kak Andam tu macam grumpy2 pulak.. Dia pun tak cukup tidur kah? I mean, adakah itu normal? Kamu hantar kain and tempah awal2 from the bridal boutique only to receive silent treatment from them...? Alasan mereka - busy with March wedding. Adakah aku kesah? Nope. Tapi adakah mereka kesah? Hmm nggak jugak. So, pasrah sajelah. Kalau lah saya punya banyak uwang, akan saya demand macam2. *siGh* Tatapi saya tidak punya banyak uwang, maka saya tak akan dapat demand macam2. Tunggu je lah. Diorang kata akan call nanti. Haaaa kenapa nanti? Itu yang kita taktau.

Baju nikah saya dihantar ke tailor yang biasanya tolong jahit baju2 kurung & kebaya saya, hantar minggu lepas, minggu ni dah potong kain.. Siap call tolong update kan the overall progress.. I mean, that's the level of comfort I'm looking for.. Managing the customers' expectation.. Haihhh itu lah bezanya kot tailor biasa with the so-called busy-with-other-weddings bridal boutique..

Saya mahu... cuti 3 bulan bergaji. Mesti best kan.. Hari2 boleh focus untuk wedding preparation and untuk wedding life afterwards.. Belajar memasak especially.. :)

Saya mahu... berhenti merepek and sambung buat kerja.. dan menjadi rajin. To Farah, sila reply email. To others, sila update blog. Jangan lah rajin sangat buat kerja.. *gRin*

Haihhh.. Till later~*

Entry ini diakhiri dengan lirik lagu baru yang saya dengar from h0t.fm tapi menurut adik Kerol sudah pun popular sebelum ini.. yang kiranya saya rasa sangat laaaa catchy dan merepek akan tapi mengapa lah selalu lagu catchy dan merepek ini lah yang dok terngiang2 dalam kepala otak saya... Huhu..

Project Pop - Bukan Superstar

Andai aku Pasha Ungu
semua wanita kan memburuku
Bila aku Ariel Peterpan
kau yakin ngefans karena urang keren

Sexy badannya.. Mulan Jameela
cantiknya dia seperti aku
Giring Nidji sahabat aku
dekat denganku.. dialah aku..

Tapi kenyataan aku bukan siapa-siapa
kuingin engkau mencintaiku apa adanya

Ku bukan superstar.. kaya dan terkenal
Ku bukan saudagar.. yang punya banyak kapal
Ku bukan bangsawan.. ku bukan priyayi
Ku hanyalah orang yang ingin dicintai

Haa haa haaa… Haa haa haaa…

Andai ku Letto wis pasti aku wong jowo
Tapi kenyataan aku bukan siapa-siapa
kuingin engkau mencintaiku apa adanya

Ku bukan superstar.. kaya dan terkenal
Ku bukan saudagar.. yang punya banyak kapal
Ku bukan bangsawan.. ku bukan priyayi
Ku hanyalah orang yang ingin dicintai

Kata orang ku mirip Glenn Fredly
suara merdu, wanita jatuh hati
Namun semua itu hanya mimpi bagimu woohoo~

Jadi… semua itu hanya mimpi?
Ya iya laah… masya ya iya dong
duren aja dibelah bukan dibedong

Ku bukan superstar.. kaya dan terkenal
Ku bukan saudagar.. yang punya banyak kapal
Ku bukan bangsawan.. ku bukan priyayi
Ku hanyalah orang yang ingin dicintai

Kamu bukan super, kamu bukan setar
Kalo digabungin kamu bukan supersetarr..
Ku bukan bangsawan, ku bukan priyayi
Ku hanyalah orang yang ingin dicintai
Haa haa haaa… Haa haa haaa…

Haaaa.... have you heard this song before? :)

Daaa~*

The one with... the current (interesting) routine of my life.

I SO want to update my blog but I have nothing much to talk about just because my activities are so mundane and routine now.. They are very exciting to me, but can bore the others -- or so I believe. My life is now all about:

Busy with wedding preps.
Busy with wedding preps.
Busy with wedding preps -- long weekend has never been this tiring!
Busy with work -- this is not new.

I have other things that happened around me, like:


  • A farewell dinner with colleagues at SouLed Out last Friday, held for a colleague who’s going to be seconded to Vietnam for 2 years.

  • Another farewell dinner on the recent Friday, again for the same colleague, but that time around was only held for the close friends at work. It was held at this one recently married colleague’s house, which I found to be oh-so-big-&-nice-&-beautiful! She obviously had downplayed the whole thing about her house having no furniture and as such, I should have known it better..! The gathering was of a nice one, with one colleague finally put his words into action, that he can really cook all the pastas and such.. better than those normally served at the restaurant.. :) And with another colleague who finally introduced her long-distant on-and-off boyfriend to the gang.

  • A quick catch-up moment here and there with friends via email, YM, and a quick meet-up. Oh I SO don’t want to be one of those who’s SO busy settling down until unintentionally leaving out friends out of the picture.. Never! At least to the best I can, that is.

  • Mak Rado still insist nak Rado kahwin contract, I mean WTH?!! (Astro Channel 105, Monday to Friday, 11pm to 12am :p)

But the thing is I don’t like to talk so much about colleagues by showing their pictures and such, for I believe they deserve some respects there. That’s why I don’t understand how come sometime people can simply put up the pictures of their colleagues, ok maybe the colleagues equal to friends -- that, I understand for I myself have that, but pictures of the bosses? I don’t think the bosses would want that, do they? Oh well, who I am to say kan.. *roLLing eyes*

And those quick catching-up moments, naahhh I’ll just keep that to myself..

So there you go.. Nothing much, everything is same old same old.. Oh except for the wedding preps of course -- that, is definitely something new, like totally! :) But it's not that I don't want to share about it here.. Sikit2 boleh la kot.. I just don't want people to have any expectation about it... Plus, I shy lah! :P

Okie dokie people, till I have something better to share and spill it out here ya!

Nite2..

The one with... geram no more :P

Ini adalah following to my previous entry..

Not that this entry is necessary.. Tapi lantak lah kan.. :P

Dah tak geram dah and dah tak rasa ralat dah coz baru tau yang contest tu sebenarnya kena teka 2 lagu, when I thought all I had to guess was only 1 song.. So even if I knew the title of that Faizal Tahir song, I wouldn't win that RM1,000 for I seriously had no idea what the other song was... I mean, I didn't even knew that there was another lyrics of another song being read to me.. ! Ngeh3x.

=)

So I am now geram no more... *smiLing sheepishLy*

By the way, a caller had won Rm4k ++ for being able to get it right in guessing that 2 sets of song I was supposed to guess. And now they are throwing another sets of song for the caller to guess.. A different amount of cash-prize is up for grab yaw! :) More details is here.

Till later~*

Tuesday, 3 March 2009

The one with.. geramnye!!! *iSk*

Siapa..
Sebenarnya aku padamu..
Mungkin sama dengan teman lain..
Yang bisa kau buat begitu..
Dan bila..
Tiada lagi teman bermain..
Kau pulang tuk dapatkan aku..
Itulah aku…padamu...

*iSk*

Hoho.. bukan.. bukan kerana merajuk dengan Kerol ke hape I put this nice and sweet melancholy song..

It was because of this lyrics, I missed the chance to win a cash-prize! Adoiiiii la.

Well, it was one of the usual nights where I was on my way back home from office and I got stuck in the bad traffic due to the heavy downpour in KL.. and as usual I will switch on my second favourite radio station h0t.fm (the first being h1tz.fm).. and they were having this god-knows-what’s-the-name-of-the-contest where you have to sms them, and if you are lucky, they will call you. And then they will read to you in some monotonous confusing tones, a few lines of lyrics of a song.. and within few seconds you have to guess what song is that and who’s the singer.

Easy-peasy aite?

Or so I thought!

So I sms-ed them just for the fun of it.. I did that for 5 times and that was it. I’ve always told myself that I will not send more than 5 sms-es for a radio contest. I mean, if it is meant to be, one sms will do actually.. aite?

20 minutes or so has passed, and there was no call.

Life continued as usual.

Got home, parked my car, said hi to Mama, and went upstairs to get a change.

And that's when suddenly the phone rang.

My My.. LADY LUCK WAS ON MY SIDE YAW! :)

The DJs called me, and read out lout the above lyrics. I was kinda blur in the beginning cause like I said they would use this one kind confusing, monotonous tone as a trick. But the moment they came to stop at the part.. “Dan bila..Tiada lagi teman bermain.. Kau pulang tuk dapatkan aku…


I was like “AHAH!!! I KNOW I KNOW!!”

It’s a song by Faizal Tahir.. entitled.. aaaaa… urmmmmm.. alaaaaa.. I know! I know! I swear I know this song! Alaaa… it’s… urmmm.. aaaaaaa….

Yes people, can you believe that?? I went all point blank not being able to remember the title of the song!!!!

Geramnye!! If only the PC was on, I swear I would have just about enough time to actually quickly google for it!

The DJs had to tell me that my time was up, so there you go… Just like that…

MY LADY LUCK FLEW AWAY….

Sheeeshhhh. The song is so god damn familiar!

By the way, korang tau ke tajuk lagu tu? I mean without having to ask others or google for it? Tau ke? Tau ke??? :P (Oh please just say no... No? :P)

So tell me again, why didn’t I win that cash?

A. I cheated.
B. I was lucky.
C. I am a genius.
D. It’s written.

(Pengaruh cerita slumdog.. hoho!)

Of course the answer is D – it’s written that I was not meant to be.

Oh well.

Hmm you want to know WHY I go all-berserk now? Because I KNOW I knew the song.. and most important.. Because the cash-prize offered was…

A good RM1,000 !!!!

Dang! Yes, mari go berserk sama2.

I guess history hardly repeats itself huh? (notice I use the word ‘hardly’ not ‘never’… So I definitely won’t stop entering radio contest yaw!)

=)

Okie dokie. It's time to watch Intan and do my ironing.. Till later~*

p.s. I hope none of you who knows me was actually listening to h0t.fm just now, for I sounded so freaking funny!! :P Cukuplah Kerol & his 2 saksi managed to catch it and had me as the laughing stock... Huhu.. (Kerol was in the car with Zul & Najib at that time when I told him, he was on the way to get his borang nikah signed and approved.. ;p)

The one with... ticking things off THE list one by one…

Boy does the trip to Nilai 3 and Jalan TAR for the wedding preps can be very tiring yet overwhelming, doesn’t it? :)

I finally have had my fair share of such experience. Went to Nilai 3 on Saturday and to Jalan TAR on Sunday to survey and buy some wedding-related stuff. Overall it was quite tiring, what with the fact that I had to wake up quite early, to walk under the hot weather, to go through the places crowded with people from different walks of life, to then consider the heavy rains everytime come 4pm, to face and manage the different opinions of each family members, and not to mention to let the money flows out of the pocket like nobody’s business… ~~ !!!

But thank God I am surprise at myself on how I can be quite flexible and not too fussy about choosing and agreeing on some of the things.. *few pats on the shoulder hoho* =) (Perhaps maybe because I am more worried about the post-wedding? Ah, the fickle-minded me. Kejap worry about wedding itself. Kejap worry about the life after-wedding. Senang cerita, I'm in the state where I tend to worry just about everything!! *yeLps!*)..

Anyways.

So overall I had quite a smooth sailing experience at those two places.. of which I’m gonna need to come back for another round or two visits sooN.. Huhu!

Both Kerol and I are on leave tomorrow, for we’re going to take that HIV test thingy and plus we need to start dealing with the formal procedures of that ‘permohonan untuk berkahwin’ and whatnot.

So yeah.. Ticking things off THE list slowly one by one, yet there are 1,001 things more to go!

Wish us luck. And enjoy the Monday blues yaw! ;)

Till later~*
