Maafkan aku

The moment I opened my email this morning, the message below popped out. Almost forgotten how fast time goes by and suddenly it's the fasting month again.
Do'a malaikat Jibril menjelang Ramadhan " "Ya Allah tolong abaikan puasa ummat Muhammad, apabila sebelum memasuki bulan Ramadhan dia tidak melakukan hal-hal yang berikut: * Tidak memohon maaf terlebih dahulu kepada kedua orang tuanya (jika masih ada); * Tidak berma'afan terlebih dahulu antara suami isteri; * Tidak bermaafan terlebih dahulu dengan orang-orang sekitarnya. Maka Rasulullah pun mengatakan Amiin sebanyak 3 kali. Dapatkah kita bayangkan, yang berdo'a adalah Malaikat dan yang meng-amiinkan adalah Rasullullah dan para sahabat , dan dilakukan pada hari Jumaat. Oleh itu SAYA TERLEBIH DAHULU MEMOHON MAAF jika saya ada berbuat kesalahan, baik yang tidak di sengaja maupun yang di sengaja , semoga kita dapat menjalani ibadah puasa dengan penuh keberkatan..
Sahabat2ku sekelian, maafkan segala silap ku.

Junior and the good old days at ITM

Had a nice surprise just now when my brother who is staying in KL called and told me that somebody would like to speak to me, of all the people, I never expected to hear from her again. The last I heard or saw her was when she was doing her Pre-Commerce in 1990 at UiTM (then ITMCS). She was in the first batch of freshies that initiated the Semariang Campus then. It was my first time being an OC (Orientation Committee). But then the ragging thingy was already banned after the UPM's case earlier on. Still we did manage to put the freshies under pressure or rather the so-called orientation kind of a thing. But compared to my orientation days back in 1987, they fare better than us. We had miserably endured 11 days of orientation week back in ITM Batu Lintang then, we had to face the constant shouting, ridiculous requests such as looking for pregnant ants, kissing and hugging a tree, walking like ducks and quacking away at the same time. We had little time to sleep. We were practically…

Counting the days

It has been 3 weeks since the accident and my car is still in the workshop till now. I missed my car so much and it's so difficult trying to get things done without having one. How I wish the workshop would speed up the whole thing. I called AIG last Monday and was told that the workshop should have fixed my car in about a week only as the accident was a minor one and yet it's coming to the third week already. I'm supposed to be angry with the whole thing but I'm just too tired to even lost my temper over that. I just called the workshop last Tuesday, at first Ms Pang (the lady at the workshop) was a bit reluctant when I asked about my car, and when I told her that I called AIG earlier on, unbelievably(I thought so but I knew the mention of AIG made her jump of course!!!...) she asked her towkey about it. She told me to call back later, I insisted that I would wait while she called for her towkey, a minute or so later, according to her towkey, they need to spray my car…

Funny?!!!

Received sms from a travel agent 1341 hours just now.

Sms from Mei Mei: U hv T house address?..

Me: (laughed heartily) when I saw the sms

Called M & the following conversation follows below:

Me: Hello darling!..(giggling again)

Mei Mei: Hami su chabo?....(watsup girl)

Me: (giggling again) Your sms lor, I can't give you the address(giggling again), I don't know which one lor. I have the official one, the other non-official one, I don't know, so how? (giggling again).

Mei Mei: (giggling away at the other end) aiyooo! I forgot la ho...sori la chabo....kesian u...

Me: Ya lor...i takut nanti i give you the wrong address meant for the wrong person, mati o like that.... I suggest you call himself and ask him which one.

Mei Mei: ok Amoi...sorry ho!...(laughing)

(Everytime I think of this, I would giggle and smile quietly. Just another day in a secretary's diary)

Chaotic

Today is definitely not the day I would look forward to actually. The last few days was chaotic to me and Mbok, myself busy with convocation and Mbok being pressed with a lot of things especially on some of our deals. But yesterday was considered the ultimate. After getting a few hints and clues here and there, both of us were finally struck with the hard truth about this guy. We were practically shoved around making things easy for him and and by the end of the day he would be getting the fruit of our labour. How pathetically sick and gross!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Both of us were fuming with anger. Well!!! This has to stop and if he has something up his sleeve, both of us has our own "tricks" too. Urggggggggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!...I hate it when this happens. Of all the people we've encountered and work with he was the last person that we thought would be the main culprit or villain. Actually nak, mun nya sik tamak gilak eh, dah 2 - 3 igek dah deal masuk. ....eeeeeeeeeee!!!..…

Too tired

Messy table, huhuhu...after 3 days away from the office, that's how it is.... Sweet cake from Japan, mcm kek lapis Sarawak pun ada, rasa pun mcm kek lapis juak. The flavour is green tea, nice n yummy.

Another sweet treats from Japan - rice cake

Beautiful bouqet for Su's birthday yesterday given by Reen. Just love the fresh roses and cherries


Felt so lazy to go to the office today. After the last session yesterday, my body was aching all over, my feet are just killing me. Went home, took a nice long cooling bath and doze off till morning. My chest hurt a little, it's a normal thing to me, whenever I'm too tired, my chest hurts but the pain will always disappear whenever I take a long rest and good night sleep. Woke up at 0500 am this morning feeling much better though still feeling tired.
By the way, rindok jak nak ngkah irrelevant pictures kat atas ya, just for fun, sik tauk nak ngkah gambar apa gik. Please ignore the quality of the pictures taken ya.

2nd day Konvo

Tired but still smiling, the morning session just ended, rehat lepas nyusun folder di kerusi jemputan (L-R, Djen,Sue, me & Reen)

Hadapilah apa jua dihadapan dgn penuh senyuman!..
Uniform baru PT for this year, tapi mcm group marhaban jak..kekekekekeke. Taken awal pagi sebelum bertugas di DU
Today is the 2nd of the convocation, both sessions held in the morning and afternoon. Awal pagi dah bergambar sakan. The pictures were taken in the morning and during the break on the second day. Tapi banyak gossip le...malas nak cerita, biarlah rahsia.

Konvo - 1st day

Come to think of it, suasana konvo tidak terasa sgt bila aku pikirkan tentang macam2 yang berlaku kebelakangan ini. Biasanya sebelum majlis konvo, rasa excited semacam je, tiba harinya mcm tak best pulak. For the last 3 -4 tahun, semangat bertugas begitu excited sgt hinggakan aku dan geng2 PT yg lain akan keluar dari rumah selepas subuh, seawal 0530 pagi, bulan dan bintang masih kelihatan lagi di langit, kami dah on the way ke kampus hendak menjalankan tugas. This morning, aku sampai office dalam jam 0710 pagi, kalau sebelum ni, jam 0630 pagi dah sampai ke office. That bad huh! Rupanya, I'm not the only yang berperasaan begitu, the rest of the geng pun sama. Masing2 berkata, nothing much to look forward to convocation this year, business as usual kan? I guess one of the reason why me and the others are not so excited this year because a few of our friends were not appointed again. We missed them so much and for the fact that there are really good in handling fussy parents and fami…

Hari kedua Majlis Konvo 2005

Majlis Konvo 2005 - Bilik VVIP (Me, Reen & Kak Ma)

Perasmian pesta konvo 2004 - tema pakaian, kebaya nyonya.

Hari ini 08.08.08 ada majlis perasmian Pesta Konvo ke-12. Tahun ini some of us di Canselori tidak terlibat untuk perasmian Pesta Konvo tetapi terlibat di Majlis Konvokesyen ke-12 yang akan berlangsung minggu depan pada 11 - 13 Ogos 2008. This whole week actually suasana di kampus sibuk dan meriah sekali dengan persediaan untuk majlis konvo yang akan datang.
Banyak kenangan aku sewaktu bertugas sebagai Penyambut Tetamu Universiti setiap kali majlis konvo berlangsung. Aku mula dilantik menjadi Penyambut Tetamu Universiti pada tahun 2004. Sebelum berpindah ke Canselori aku bertugas di Fakulti Sains & Teknologi Sumber di pejabat Timbalan Dekan. (tukar slang sarawak lok, dah sik da idea nak nulis dlm bahasa rasmi, sabar jaklah owh!!!) Ada kenangan manis …

Karma

As my fingers are tapping the keyboard, I was trying to figure out what shall I put as the subject of my posting today. Feeling a little bit disturbed this morning when I received a call from somebody just now, I began to think and recap all the things that I've been through all these years. Let me just refer that somebody as "A". When I look at it, the karma of life is doing its cycle now and obviously its payback time for "A". From the voice at the other end, I could somehow detect the uneasiness in "A's" voice. Somehow there were more words that "A" wished to tell me but I was aloof and cold. Why so? Mmmmmmmmmmm. After all these years and everything that has happened, why wouldn't I be? I still have the same respect towards "A" but things are just not the same any longer.

Years ago "A" made a decision that changed everything. His decision somehow created such a chain reaction that everybody was badly affected.

Noni AF5

Adik Jepung at Simply Sedap, Tabuan

I'm at loss at the moment, my car is still in the workshop, I missed my car so much. The last weekend was quite hectic for me, I slept over at my friend's house, she brought me here and there to help me with my errands, sent me home. At home, cleared my laundry and the weather was sooooooooo hot. Happy to hear that Noni was coming over to perform at Kuching Waterfront last Saturday evening. I didn't go because I don't fancy myself being in a big crowd like that. My sister took some pictures and recorded her performances. At home, same time, I prepared Chocolate Brownies for her, she loves chocolate cake I was told.

Finally met her on Sunday, picked her up from the hotel and brought her for breakfast at Simply Sedap, Tabuan. Fortunately, the place was very quiet when we came so Noni was able to enjoy her breakfast peacefully.
