Hello, I’m back.
I actually noted down everything that had happened during my Terengganu trip in my phone but I realized it was wayyyyyy too long and has serious potential of being dead boring. So I’ll just summarize things for you people.

The day we decided to take a trip to the east coast was definitely a wrong day. A drive to Marang which usually takes 5 to 6 hours, took us 16 hours.
Yes, 16.
All because of the floods everywhere along the way. We had to stop every now and then, make long detours etc etc.
We left the house (with three other cars following) at 9:30 am Thursday and we only reached the Seri Malaysia Hotel in Marang at 1:30 am Friday !
Imagine how exhausted we all were, especially the brother who was behind the wheel throughout the whole journey.
Plus, I was SICK. Sneezing and coughing non stop. Sobs.
On the same night we arrived, a couple staying two doors away from our room got nabbed by the Jabatan Agama. The guy who got caught was the same guy who got angry at Kak Siti because we were making so much noise when we checked in. Hmm.

Anyway, the wedding or to be precise the Upacara Menyambut Menantu last Friday went well. It was certainly different than other weddings I have ever been to. I was even sicker that day.

We left for Kuala Terengganu on Saturday. Stopped by a batik factory and the Masjid Terapung. Stayed at the Grand Continental Hotel. We also spent a little time at the Batu Burok beach, Pasar Payang and Losong where they were selling all sorts of keropok.
I had fun playing ball with the kids in the pool, even though I can’t swim.
Checked out on Sunday. And no, we didn’t take 16 hours this time, we were home in 6 hours. Alhamdulillah.
I didn’t take as many pictures like I normally do though.

Me in the car on the way, looking as sick as I can be. I forgot to bring my sweater along so I had to use Marc’s.

The newlyweds looking very happy.

Marc and Kak Siti.

Marlene and Kak Siti.

Kak Siti and I (still sick and fat. sobs).

Daddy and Alya (my other stepsister, Kak Faridah’s youngest. I hope I got the spelling right) at Masjid Terapung, Kuala Terengganu. She’s a real sight for sore eyes ! Sigh.

Abang Mizan (Kak Faridah’s husband) and his son, Hakim (the kid squatting) flying a kite while Kak Liza (in tudung) and Marc (in black) watch on. The little kid running is Aisya.

Daddy with Alya again ! *heart smiles*

So there you go.
It feels good to be back.

Marc turns 21 today ! Wheee !
Happy Birthday lil’ brother !
Here’s to many more birthdays to come, Aamin.

The whole family had a simple birthday lunch at Cozy House, Ampang Park where Marc and I shared a banana split.

I’ll get you a present when I start working, okay ?

Heikal and I watched Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium last Saturday and had a late (and oh so satiating!) dinner at TGIF. The movie was a disappointment though.

I honestly don’t get why people wear sunglasses indoors. Maybe it’s supposed to be trendy (or whatever they call it these days) but I just find it ridiculous.

I woke up today to a call by the ex’s mum. She was just checking on me and wanted to let me know that his younger sister is getting married next month. She wants me to come for the solemnization ceremony.

I have cried myself to sleep three days in a row now. Depressing okay.

Kak Siti got married today.

The bridegroom, Abang Shukeri

She officially became a wife with one lafaz only. Alhamdulillah. It was touching to see Daddy and Kak Siti all teary eyed.

Daddy as the wali

Kak Siti’s married !

Upacara membatalkan air sembahyang

After the solemnization ceremony, Marc, Lene and I were already bathed in sweat (there goes my makeup !) while carrying the hantaran trays and walking to the hall where the kenduri was held. Camera flashes were everywhere. My tudung kept going out of shape and I had to fix it every now and then. Not exactly a sight that I would want to get recorded on cameras.

It was a pretty busy day for the siblings and I, walking around being ushers and handing out bunga telur to every guests on their table.
So yeah, from 1030am right up until 430pm, we were busy bees !
Tiring gila okay.
But I’m glad everything went well, Alhamdulillah.

Marc and Daddy

Daddy and I (oily faced and hair like a mop)

Oh, oh, I just had to post this photo of the oh-so-cute Abdul Rasheed, Kak Faridah’s son. He’s so adorable ! Cheeky too !

it’s all coming back to me now.

Daddy’s blood test and checkup was postponed to April next year. The last checkup he had was in February this year which means no checkup for more than a year.
I am angry.
Angry at the fact that they couldn’t call or mail or text or use other means of communication to let Daddy know that it was postponed instead of him having to drive all the way there for nothing. What a waste of time, fuel and energy !
Okay so maybe it was not a total waste, he did get to take his new supply of medications.
I really don’t get these people.
Why the postponation ?
Haha, I know, postponation is not a word. It just sounded cool (and funny) in my head.
Let me rephrase that, why the postpone ??

I was in Shah Alam with Lene earlier, printing four copies of my thesis.
Then I left them with Pojie as she’s gonna hand them over to Chona who will then pass them to Farhan who’s responsible of bringing the whole class’ thesis for the hard cover binding process.

I’m tired.
I’m hungry.
I’m sad.

Daddy has to go for his routine blood test at IJN tomorrow morning.
I hope everything turns out well.

I have been watching DVDs/CDs like a freak.
From Monster In Law to Alfie to Transformers.
I have License To Wed on my lappie and I intend to watch that too, soon.

I did 30 minutes of dance.
That should be enough, for starters.
I need to curb this appetite of mine.
I’ve gotten so used to eating that this shivering hunger state is kinda hard to adapt to.
As at now I’m hungry and craving boiled sausages.
I’m sure I’ll be fine in a few days/weeks.

Remember I told you that you annoy me sometimes ?
This is one of those times.
Silence is better. Words can hurt.
But then again, in this situation, silence can hurt too.

I know this is like the umpteenth time I have changed my blog URL and I really apologize for any trouble caused. *blushes*

This was just something I had to do.

The holidays have officially started for me today.
After three weeks of sucky exams and two days of presentations, I’m free !
For a month that is.

There has been a lot going on in my boring-yet-full-of-drama life even though I haven’t been updating much.

What better way to start a new blog than with pictures !
Load and loads of them !

Okay, here goes.
So for the past three weeks, I had this.

Frosted Chocolate Malt

And this.

Chicken Baked Rice

And this.

Cookie Summit

And a few mouthfuls of this.

Mac and Cheese

With this guy.

At Swensen’s.
On different days, mind you.
Gosh, sedap gila okay !
I believe we’ll be going there often after this.
Because I said so. Okay ?

The whole family was at Aunt Maziey’s place on the night of November 3rd. Faiz was back for awhile.
It was the first time I’ve ever tasted Nasi Bukhara.
The spaghetti was delicious ! It had some kind of beans in it if I remember correctly. Not that any of you cared right.

Anis, Alice and I.

With cousins, Lynn, Faizal and Qistina.

Marc and I.

Faiz and I.

One of my schoolmates, Melina Su got married on that same weekend.
I was ecstatic that I got to meet Yus who was the bridesmaid that day.
It’s been ages that we last saw each other.

The newlyweds.

Akey, Yus and I.

Some of my ex schoolmates.

The one and only, Akey.

With Halim.


On Deepavali, my classmate, Chona had her open house.

Nanab, Zana and I almost went into the wrong house as two doors away from Chona’s had tents all put up. The three of us were actually already standing in front of that house looking inside trying to look for any of our classmates. Malu okay.

From left: Yamin, Zana, Nanab, Chona and me.

Ina, my roomie with her boyfriend.

Lene and I spent Deepavali night at Barath’s.
We had yummy mutton curry. I had two, erm maybe three servings of it.
Cheryl and I couldn’t stop munching on the murukku and nuts.
No pictures though. Sad.

Last Saturday was the last day of Syawal and I was at Akey’s place having pizza, satay and Nasi Daging. Nyum.
We talked until it was almost 3am and I had to rush home as Daddy woke up hypoglycemic.

The sister and I have also managed to watch 1408, Stardust (and OMG Charlie Cox is delicious !) and 30 Days of Nights.

My research presentation last Monday went well, Alhamdulillah.
It was funny though when I confidently fed my lecturers bullshit crap while answering one particular question that I didn’t know the answer to.
I think they believed me. Heee.
My project site presentation yesterday was okay too, despite the fact that we were bombarded with comments and questions by the HTAR pharmacists.
I was the only one answering and I almost snapped at them. Almost.
All in all everything went fine.
I’m just glad everything’s over.

I put too much belacan in the kangkung belacan I cooked just now.
Lene and Marc just have to shove it down their throat I guess.

I’m gonna continue YouTubing.
Or probably sleep the rest of the day off.
Eh, I can’t. I’m supposed to exercise later.

Happy holidays !
