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.

Kak Siti’s married !

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 !

sins of pride.

Currently feeling: Sleepy
Currently listening to: Nothing

I can’t remember where I got this from but I think it’s worth sharing.
It’s a list of some of the sins that pride gives birth to (ouch !):

Covetousness – because you believe you deserve something more than others.

Ungodly ambition – because you believe that you are most qualified, and the idea of someone else being preferred over you is an insult to your perceived worth.

Boasting – because everyone should know who you are and what you have accomplished.

Contention – because in picking fights you feel a sense of superiority over those who may (or may not) be in error.

Unthankfulness – because you deserve everything you get!

Selfishness – because others do not!

Self-deceit – because it’s easier to believe you are something, when in fact you are nothing.

A judgmental attitude – because you believe the errors of others are much more serious than your own.

Gossip – because you look so much better when telling others how awful someone else is. Mayo said that the proud “endeavor to build their own praise upon the ruins of others’ reputation.”

Complaining – because God should have consulted you before orchestrating the events of your day/life.

Hypocrisy – because you must hide the truth, your own failures, in order to avoid shame and accumulate praise.


Pride, envy, avarice — these are the sparks that have set on fire the souls of man. (Dante Alighieri)

it’s all coming back to me now.

Currently feeling: Sleepy
Currently listening to: Nothing

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.
Sorry.
Let me rephrase that, why the postpone ??
Sigh.

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.

the key is in being rational.

Currently feeling: Perplexed
Currently listening to: Breaking My Heart – Aqualung

Be stronger. You can be. No reason you can’t be. It’s all in the mind. You have a reason to hate him. To not want to see him. To not even want to think about him. You’ve been through so much. I know you’re much stronger than you think you are. You think about it. You’ve been through more emotional ups and downs than I have. The key is in being rational. (Gan, 2007)

Now I don’t wanna hate him, I just wanna get over him.
I can.
I know I can.
Right ?

Hello.
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.

Hmm.
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.


Heikal.


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.
Hmm.
Lene and Marc just have to shove it down their throat I guess.
Heee.

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

Happy holidays !

xoxo
