what does your hubby get for you before he goes outstation ?

Well, my Sunshine left me with these.

Missing in the picture is another can of Coke Light which I finished last night and that packet of M&M’s you see is actually almost empty.

How to lose weight like this ? Hehe.

Mr Sunshine’s on his way to Kelantan and will only be back on Wednesday. InshaAllah.
This house is all mine for the next two nights.

I’m alright. So far.
Work keeps me busy, and by the time I get back from work I’m usually so worn out, the only thing that I can think of is getting to bed.
Lately, I have been pretty swamped with tasks to complete at work that I sometimes have to bring my work back home. Hmm.

Last Saturday after I was done at work, Mr Sunshine and I decided to go to Mesra Mall, Kerteh to check out the newly opened TGV cinema.
We watched Magika because there was nothing else to watch. Hehe. But the movie was not too bad lah. 🙂
Since the place was new, we had no complaints. We sat through the entire movie with smell of new furniture around us.
Here’s Mr Sunshine with his cute Shin Chan pose in front of the cinema.

As you can see, he was not too happy about being forced to pose in public like that. Hehehe.

I am so inspired by a fellow blogger, Su’s weight loss success. I am so round (and flabby) right now, it’s not even funny anymore. I wish I had as much determination as Su has !
I am such a sloth.
If I don’t watch it, sooner or later none of my clothes would fit me. I do not want to look in the mirror and not recognize the person I see.

Apart from work (loads of drama happening there but I am not in the mood to elaborate), my life’s pretty uninteresting in a good way. Get what I mean ?

not all change is good.

I can’t believe the weekend is almost over !

Mr Sunshine and I did what we do best over the weekend.
We stayed up late watching movies on his PC, which usually results in us waking up late the following morning but this weekend we managed to be awake pretty early.
Not only that, we shopped for groceries, paid almost all of our bills, drafted our budgets for this month and the next.

I cooked pucuk paku masak lemak cili api today, fried ikan kembung and made a wickedly hot sambal belacan (the ulcer-causing type). I know those dishes sound simple but they were delicious enough to make Mr Sunshine have THREE plates of rice. Hehe. 😉

The more I reminisce about the good times I had during Eid, and all the good times I would have had with more of my friends back home in Gombak if I had extra time, the more my heart yearns to be back there.

The thought about staying here for a while more might benefit both Mr Sunshine and I (financial-wise) has struck me a hundred times.
Although, that does not mean I am backing out on my plans to move out of here.

New circumstances that I have been forced to deal with have made me really, really, REALLY uncomfortable and dispirited with where I am at now.
I’m getting a bit too old for all this drama lah.
It’s a bit unbelievable that at 40, someone can still such be such a kid (read: annoying, blunt, unprofessional, inconsiderate).

So right now, more than ever, I wished I could teleport back to Gombak.

I don’t wanna jinx anything.

Have you heard the good news ?
Terengganu’s first TGV cineplex opens TODAY in Mesra Mall Kerteh !
Although it’s almost a 2-hour drive from here, but it’s nearer than having to go to Kuantan for my movie fix.
I can’t wait for Mr Sunshine to bring me there ! Yes sayang, you just have to ! Hehe.

I think I have a zit IN my nose. It hurts whenever I squeeze my nose.
I have this habit of frequently squeezing my nose (ok so actually, I am secretly afraid that my nose would grow bigger and bigger as I age so I squeeze it in hopes of halting the process, but everyone does that, right ? RIGHTTTT ???).

Ok bye.

i got you babe.

I am having trouble falling asleep.
I do not know whether it’s because it’s that time of the month, or because I have became accustomed to feeling blue whenever Aidilfitri is nearing since Mummy left.

I am secretly afraid of not being able to programme myself to be happy around Mr Sunshine’s family at Raya. It’s not that they’re bad people or anything (they have been great, Alhamdulillah). But I guess this takes getting used to, because I have not even gotten used to Raya without Mummy around, plus the fact I have never been this far apart from my family my entire life.

Oh yeah, and I am having my period now which means I am not pregnant. Yet.
I know I have seemed pretty cool about it all this while but it’s really, really, really starting to get to me. Like, is there something wrong with me ? I feel like I am disappointing not only myself but everyone around me.
Mr Sunshine especially. 🙁

I am all torn up inside right now.

But as Mr Sunshine always say to me, “Semuanya datang dari Allah SWT.”
I know this is so cliche, but everything does happen for a reason.
I shall try not mope around this year during Raya.
I shall try not to worry about things I cannot control.
I shall try not to take insignificant people’s words or actions to heart.
I shall try not to stress myself up over petty things. – This one is the toughest of ’em all !

I should be appreciating the fact that this year will be the first year Mr Sunshine and I will be celebrating Aidilfitri as husband and wife. InshaAllah. Alhamdulillah.
And that I still have my family around even they are miles away. Alhamdulillah.

This better be just my hormones messing around with me.

I’ve gotta get to bed, Mr Sunshine and I have a long day ahead of us tomorrow.

P.S: Raya cookies status ? Almost gone. Hehe.

they say time heals everything, but i’m still waiting.

Happy birthday Mummy.
You would be 60 if you were still around.
And tomorrow, it will be 4 years since you left us.
I miss you so much that it (literally) hurts, especially since it’s halfway through Ramadhan and Aidilfitri is just around the corner. :'(

This will be the fifth Aidilfitri we will be celebrating without you. I just can’t lie,but things will never be the same without you around.
Daddy misses you. He’s doing alright, but he’s alone for most parts of the day. I hope my transfer application will be approved as soon as possible so that I can be nearer to him. Ameen.
Marc’s doing good. He’s  a lot wiser now. You would be so proud of him, I know I am. He’s no longer naughty little Marc. 🙂
Marlene’s growing up to be a beautiful, smart and strong woman, just like you. She resembles you so much !
I am in the hands of a good man right now. Alhamdulillah.
It’s such a pity that he did not get to see how beautiful you were as a mother and a person.
I’m sure you would have loved him. He’s sweet and hilarious. 🙂
I have gained great new friends, and lost a few insignificant ones.
I have learned so much over these four years. Alhamdulillah.

There’s so much more that I want to tell you about.
I miss having you sit on the living room sofa and listen to me babble on and on.
Sometimes I have old videos with you in it on repeat just so I can listen to your voice.
I still cry myself to sleep at times, but Mr Sunshine is always there to the rescue. Alhamdulillah.

I miss you.
I miss you.

btn for the forth time.

Good morning Tuesday !
How was your sahur ?
I reheated last night’s berbuka food, I am so fortunate that Mr Sunshine’s not fussy when it comes to food.

He’s currently watching Leverage on his computer while waiting for Subuh prayers.
We have a 1-day Biro Tatanegara (BTN) course happening in Seremban tomorrow, so we’re hoping he gets permission to leave work early as the journey would take almost 8 hours from here.
I, on the other hand, have been given the privilege of a ‘traveling day’ by my boss. Mr Sunshine is entitled to a traveling day too, but according to the authorities at his workplace, he’d have to choose either the day before OR the day after, so he’s going for the day after (the course finishes at 1700 hours tomorrow, so it’s a bit ridiculous to be driving 8 hours back here right after that and to be at work the next day).
My boss told me it was the day before AND the day after. Who am I to argue with that eh ? Haha.

While we’re still on the topic of BTN, I just have to tell you that mum in-law pulled some strings and got my baju kurung for the course sewn in one night !
We’re required to wear a white top/baju kurung top and black or dark coloured kain. At first I wanted to buy myself a new Canggih school uniform top (ah, the memories !) and go on a hunt for a black coloured kain, but mum in-law told me she had a friend who could sew it for me.
Of course I thought it was impossible because as with all tailors, they should be super busy with baju Raya tailoring at this time of the year.
But (super)mum in-law made a call, and before I knew it I was buying black and white material on Saturday afternoon and had my baju kurung ready on Sunday morning !
Awesome tak ? 😀
Now if only I had a pair black shoes…

I am wondering why my last month’s claim is not credited into my account yet. It has been almost 2 weeks now. Hmm.
Note to self: Call the accounts unit TODAY.

If all goes well, I should be able to fast tomorrow. I hope.

I’m gonna try to go back to bed after Mr Sunshine leaves for work.
Although I doubt I would be able to because I have this worry about my claim thingy in my head.
Anyway, here’s to a wonderful week for all of us ! ;D

I am not sure whether any of you had noticed some bickering going on in my blog. If you have not, just ignore this next paragraph. Hehe.
For those who have, I apologize for all the negativity in this Holy month of Ramadhan.
The thing is, I usually rant about that person in my private blog, but I stopped writing altogether over there halfway through my first year at work, so I kinda forgot about the whole point of that blog’s privacy.
It was my mistake to bare it all here, in my public and so-called happy blog. Sorry !
The timing of this situation is actually funny because I just finished reading Marian Keyes’ The Other Side of The Story a few days ago, a book which tells a story about three different characters; Gemma Hogan, Lily Wright and Jojo Harvey, and how their lives intertwined through heartbreak and success.
Gemma and Lily were former best friends. Their friendship was torn apart because Lily stole Anton, whom Gemma thought was her love of her life.
Funny because I can relate to the ‘becoming former best friends’ part except that no boyfriend stealing was involved. :p
I am not going to delete any posts or comments because what’s done is done.
No looking back, those are the words that are frequently told to me by Mr Sunshine and Akey.
I believe that when a relationship turns sour, both parties involved should be blamed and responsible for the damage. So I am in no way saying that I have done nothing wrong at all.
But I’ve done my part to try to rectify things, but it was a breakdown waiting to happen.
I am honestly relieved that it finally did.
So yeah, let’s just put all that nonsense behind because I do not intend to be an attention seeker or perfect baby/budak who always thinks she’s right. 🙂

Moving on, today I received some pretty exciting news (work-related).
I am trying not to keep my hopes up but I sure am hoping for the best !
Semoga dipermudahkan semuanya. Ameen.

How did your first day of Ramadhan go ?
Despite all the drama, I made three simple dishes for berbuka just now. Although I am not fasting, I only drank a few gulps of water throughout the whole day so I was pretty famished by Maghrib. :p
Currently waiting for Mr Sunshine to come back from Tarawih prayers.
I feel bad for waking up at 0530 hours this morning for sahur, even though Mr Sunshine had already told me he only wanted to have bread, I still need to practice waking up to prepare a sahur meal, don’t I ?

I better lie down before this headache of mine gets worse.
Here’s to a better day tomorrow, InshAllah. Ameen.
Bye !

don’t worry be happy.

Oh hey, Mr Sunshine’s back !
With my Big Apple donuts !

I’m now thinking about getting a spare phone battery for him. Hahahaha.


Share Button

worry is wasteful.

I do not like not knowing where Mr Sunshine is.
Pardon me, I do not mean to sound like a naggy wife, but he travels A LOT either on his own or with some of his other colleagues, and I get worried for his safety on the road.
And yes, sometimes the worrying almost crosses the border to being paranoid. Almost.

I do not expect hourly reports, but a simple text message to let me know when he has reached somewhere or is leaving to another place would suffice.
It’s a good thing, the both of us have been used to letting each other know about our whereabouts, even before we got married. It’s not something any of us forced unto each other, I guess it was just came naturally to us.
I am not sure whether this is the norm with other couples out there(?).

A short “Saya dah sampai.” or “Saya baru bertolak ke (insert name of place).” are common exchanges between us.
Well of course through the short messaging service those messages are actually shorter. Hehe.

I depend so much on the security of always being able to get in touch with him and his whereabouts so you can only imagine how distressed I would be if he happens to go some place where there is no Maxis coverage.
Or when his phone runs out of battery.
The last text message from him was at 1800 hours, letting me know that he had just left Mesra Mall, Kerteh after his routine inspections at premises in Kemaman were over. Before that he did call to let me know his battery was running low and asked me what flavor of Big Apple donuts that I wanted. Love you.
Based on experience, he should have arrived back home like, hm, now. 🙁

I just want him home safe. 🙁

6 days and 6 nights.

Besides spending time at home talking and joking with Daddy and Marc and helping Daddy with the Streamyx troubleshooting (it turned out the modem was kaput already !), I filled my 6 days and 6 nights back in Gombak with:

1) Having lunch at KLCC with one of my best friends, Diana, who I have known since I was 12.

I love you and I am always here for you. We’re survivors ! 😉

2) Succumbing to these.

And these.

3) Enjoying a late night dinner, chat and dessert with Annisa at Dr Cafe, Solaris, Mont Kiara.

 We were having so much fun, we did not realize it was almost midnight !

4) Gossiping with Putri over Chocolate Cream Chip and Mocha Latte Frapuccinos.

 Thanks for the great time (and stories), dear ! ;D

5) Celebrated these special people’s birthdays

With a whole bunch of special people at Nando’s, Jaya One.

 Felicia, I hope you don’t mind I stole this one from you !

You guys are beyond awesome ! I love you all.

6) Pouring my heart out to my best(est) friend, Akey.

It goes without saying that you’re one in a million, thank you for being there for me through all of this. You know I love you !

7) Devouring the King of Fruits.

With the loves of my life. 🙂

No matter what happens, blood is thicker than water.

All in all, I had an amazing time ! A few glitches here and there but I am still alive. Hehe.
I hope your weekend was as amazing as mine. 🙂

I’m currently waiting patiently for Mr Sunshine to come back home with food for me to berbuka with. 😀
Ok, tipu. Not patiently. My tummy’s growling so badly I feel embarrassed.
Habis kurang pahala puasa saya.
Ok bye.
