My Sacrifice

Last Thursday Linda and i went jalan2 at Suria KLCC. And then i saw it.

Marc Jacobs.




In we went. Immediately my gaze fell on the goddess of all Marc Jacobs bags. She's magnificent. Resting on the shelf, surrounded by her dayang-dayang. She's so inviting, calling me softly. i went to her. i touched her. She's delicate in my hands. Instantly i can see myself with her. Carrying her around. i feel like a rocker goddess already.

Out of nowhere a sales assistant appear. "Miss, got discount on this one.. 40%. Original price is RM7500 almost RM8000, after discount the price is about RM5000... "

OMG.. discount? OMG..
i can't breathe.
i'm hyperventilating.
i'm bursting.

i can afford this!!!
Yeah, it'll leave a massive hole in my account.
But it'll be worth it right???
My very first designer bag!
But you have a house to furnish...
Yeah but it's on 40% discount...
But you saved the money for your very own, pay-with-your-sweat house!
Yeah.. Well, that was before i saw this bag!!!
But your house is much more important than this handbag lust!!!!!!

Before i could argue more with myself, Linda dragged me out.

She told me to think about it. Don't buy now. 10 other people told me to think about it. Don't buy on impulse.

Yes. My house needs furnishing more than i need the handbag. So, broken-heartedly, i sacrifice my Marc Jacobs for a fully-furnished Villa Wangsamas. It'll be worth it. i know.

So, instead of this beautiful baby..

Studded Stam Satchel by marc Jacobs

i got myself this equally gorgeous but a lot cheaper baby:

Quilted flapper bag by Charles & Keith

Thanks Linda and the others (you know who you are) for introducing my brain to my handbag-lust heart. My fully-furnished house owes you one :p

Random Facts #1

i love finding out facts about life, human, animals, etc.. It's good for general knowledge and some of them got me cracking with hysterical laughter. Thought i'd share some in this humble blog of mine..

  1. Corpses don't decompose as fast as they used to because of all of the chemicals and additives we eat now. ( is that good or bad?) 
  2. Your hearing is less sharp if you eat too much. ( Owh.. That's why i'm kinda deaf lately )
  3. Urine was once used as a detergent for washing. ( Euuwwwww!)
  4. It only takes 7 lbs of pressure to rip off your ears 
  5. Brain surgery is done with the patient still awake. The brain has no nerves therefore it has no sensation. The person is put to sleep to open the skull but after that the person wakes up to see the operation be completed.
  6. Smoking makes it almost impossible for a male to have a natural erection and it shrinks the penis. It also reduces the mobility of sperm. ( Ahem.. Sila lah insaf wahai perokok )
  7. You can actually die from a broken heart. Studies have shown that people who had experienced great loss or sadness can develop cracks in their heart which could lead to death.
  8. The only nation whose name begins with an "A", but doesn't end in an "A" is Afghanistan.
  9. In Greek culture, brides carry a lump of sugar in their wedding glove. It's supposed to bring sweetness to their married life. ( Marilah mengangkut bertan-tan gula for the sake of our marriages )
  10. In the 1700's you could purchase insurance against going to hell, in London England.
  11. Donald Duck comics were banned from Finland because he doesn't wear pants.

November 26, 2009


At last, i managed to get hold of tickets to watch 2012. i tried getting the tickets for 2 weeks okeee... i was excited to see this movie because
a) people make a big deal out of it
b) it’s about the end of the world
c) it involve geology, geologist, and all things related to geology
d) Mr. Chenta showed loads of enthusiasm for this movie

So anyway, off we went.

And I must say… the movie is impressive. The facts are logical and in line with geological studies ( far as i know), the actors are good, the visual and sound effects are superb. Yeah, there are some illogical parts like, how do the heroes get lucky all the time- tak kene bola2 api/masuk dalam fault/can fly the planes when he’s a doctor.. Adalah tidak masuk akal.. 

Watching 2012, it scares the hell out of me. Is that how the world would end? People, houses, buildings, swallowed by the (angry) earth; everything disappears in a matter of seconds; supermassive tsunamis drown everything; continents shift (Wisconsin in North Pole? Wtf?). Total catastrophe.  i don’t even wanna be alive when that day arrive.

Being a Muslim, we can’t rely on these theories 100%. Yes, there are some logics in it. After all, they’re all scientific facts- and i am a geologist. Though aku tidaklah tergolong dalam golongan alim ulama (not really a good Muslim.. i'm working on it!), i believe in the Quran. Allah has given us guidelines and hints about the Doomsday. So i really think when it comes to predicting the Doomsday, the Holy Quran is the best book to consult.

i did some research and i found this article on 50 Signs of the Day of Judgment From the Words of Allah and His Messenger (sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam). It’s based on a lecture by Dr. Suhaib Hassan.

 50 Signs of the Day of Judgment From the Words of Allah and His Messenger (sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam):

1. Splitting of the Moon. [i'm not sure what it means.. if you know, do share]

31. The Antichrist (al-masih al-dajjal, the false christ) will appear, with all his tools of deception, and be an immense trial.  He will be followed by 70,000 Jews from Isfahan (present-day Iran).
32. The appearance of Ya’juj and Ma’juj (Gog and Magog), and the associated tribulations.
33. The emergence of the Beast from the Earth, carrying the Staff of Moses and the Seal of Solomon, who will speak to the people, telling them they did not believe with certainty in the Divine Signs.

49. The blowing in the Trumpet by the Angel Israfil, upon which everyone will faint except as Allah wills.

Reading these give me shivers. With every breath we take, we are nearer to The Day. i hope for all of our sake, we'll improve (religiously) and kita tergolong dalam golongan org beriman. Amin

Me the Bridesmaid

I still remember when i was a kid, i was always in love with weddings. Yes, weddings. What's not to love? The beautiful decorations, the door gifts people receive, the way people come together to make the wedding work, delicious foods, the beautiful dresses the bride and groom wear, and of course, the happy, we're-madly-in-love look on the pengantin's faces.

On every weddings i went as a little girl, i made a promise to myself that i'll have the most beautiful wedding ever. And be the prettiest bride ever. Or at least have the hottest wedding dress ever. And have a tall, dark and handsome husband. Come on, every girl has that dream right? Who wants to have a gloomy wedding? Or look like the Bride of Frankenstein?

As i am the eldest in my family, i've never been hugely involved in weddings. So i never really know how it's done. But i'm proud to tell the world that i have officially been a part in not only one, but two different weddings, two weeks in a row. i was the BRIDESMAID! *clap to self*

First of all, let me tell you a thing or two about being the bridesmaid, or in Malay; pengapit. It's not all about looking good, kipas-kipaskan pengantin, and take pictures. No, no, no. It's deeper than that.

1. It's all about the bride and groom. You might hate the color of the dress that the bride ask you to wear, but remember, it's her day. Make it special for her. Bagi chance laaa...
2. Be prepared. Don't show up empty handed. Carry a small clutch with you to put things like tissues, safety pins, wet wipes, lipgloss.. You'll never know when these things will come in handy.
3. Take note. A few days before the events, discuss with the bride or wedding planner on the flow of the events, pelamin arrangements, etc.. On one of the weddings i went to, things weren't smooth because of the pelamin arrangement was not well coordinated. Tempat tepung tawar kosong, hantaran were arranged right in front of the pelamin, the stage looks so crowded! It frustrated the bride and groom. Things weren't pretty, i tell you.
4. Be presentable. Make some effort to put makeup on, and style your hair accordingly. Yes, they're the ones getting married but if you the bridesmaid look ugly, the wedding pictures with you in it will be ugly too.
5. Smile.. And remind the bride and groom to smile. Sometimes, the pengantin gets tired or overwhelmed by mixed feelings that they forget to smile. So, make them smile. They'll thank you later for making them look good in the pictures.
6. Pay attention to the bride. Be aware of any signs of tears, makeup smudges, or sweat beads on her face. Fix her dress/veil/shoes/etc. Remember, it's all about her!

OK, enough babbling. Here are the pictures:

After Anna's solemnization.
This is the only picture i have in my camera.

At Kak Siti's wedding.
This is the same bridesmaid dress i wore at Anna's wedding.

My brothers, their girlfriends, the bride and groom, and i.
I'm the only one without partner. Sobs!

Jalan-jalan selepas kenduri

Being crazy.

Me. Myself. i

p/s: Gosh... i look fat right??

In Case of Emergency...

Lately there are tons of earthquake events around us. All of our neighboring countries have history of earthquake. It's not impossible for Malaysia to experience this (Nau'zubillah *knock on wood*).

Taking this into account, last Wednesday, the building where i work went through an earthquake drill. It's a safety measure the management took to train us on the evacuation process. Basically it means you have to take the emergency staircase and go all the way down to save yourself. If you're working on the 80th floor, silalah turun melalui tangga itu sebanyak 80 tingkat. Ha! Luckily i work on the 28th floor.

Being the smart, sensible career woman that i am, upon hearing the siren i removed my 5-inch pumps, slip on a flat sandal and walk calmly to the emergency staircase.

And being the bimbo that i am, i put on sufficient amount of lipgloss, grabbed my handbag and start taking pictures while going down the stairs. Precious moments.

Enjoy the piccas!

Running for our lives.

Pretending to run for my life

Shit.. Baru tingkat 10?
*at this point segala tulang-tulang di lutut terasa longgar dan bergetar-getar*

We're finally out!!
*seperti sekawan semut berjalan beramai-ramai menuju ke destinasi selamat*

People making their way to the evacuation place

Feet of "survivors"
*our knees were shaking so hard we began to think that there's a real earthquake*

All in all, it's a good practice training us on the evacuation process. Now i know where to run to in case of earthquake (though i surely will run back home to save my loved ones rather than go to the assembly point and wait for them to head count).

The down side is i suffer calf muscle cramp! I can't walk properly and it's emberassing! Turun 28 tingkat okee!

It's a Test

i've been stressed at work lately.

Multitasking is not easy.

Today i'm grateful that one of my task had finally been completed. A meeting with the Senior General Manager concluded it all. Pheww...

Now i have to focus on my main project. The one i've been neglected for two weeks. Sorry, project!

i also have to start studying for my annual assessment. It's an interview where two assessors will ask questions about your jobs to test your knowledge and skills. If you're not lucky the assessors will ask about everything under the sun (erk!!). You'll be rated based on this interview (dapat grade something like A,B,C,D or E!!!).If you suck, consider you're dead. Gulp!

Who says the exams/tests/quizzes stop once we leave uni??

For a Couple of Days

i rarely hang out with my friends after work. It's not that i don't want to, it's just that i'll be waaaaayyyy to tired to lepak. i'd rather go home, mandi, menghadap laptop for a couple of hours, and SLEEP. That's my routine.

Not yesterday. And not today.

Yesterday i lepak with my friend, Nani. Nani is a girl i've known since primary school. We werent exactly friends in primary school, but we got along well when we're thrown in the same class in form 4. When we finished school, we went our separate way. Me, Malacca Matriculation College. Her, Negeri Sembilan Matriculation College. Me, UMS. Her, UTM. Through it all, we're still friends.

So anyway, yesterday we hung out. We had a blast.

First stop: Sakae Sushi!!!

Sangat gelojoh.

Gelojoh bwat2 comel

Eating like a pig? Guilty!

Dengan chopstick2 tu pon dier nak makan!

After stuffing our faces and big tummies with yummy Japanese food, we watched Pisau Cukur!!! My second time okee.... i like the movie. Malay version of Legally Blonde. Mereka sangat lah gediks. They make gedik-ness look so chic!


There, i said it!

*trying not to think of Aaron*

Moving on...

Today i was so stressed by work that i decided i need to shop for makeup. Suddenly i have a fetish for foundation. i never had one. It's about time, right? GOTTA HAVE IT.

i dragged Chuna with me and off we went, hunting for the perfect foundation. We found ourselves at Bobbi Brown's counter. GOTTA HAVE IT.


Make me pretty, please!!!

While i was busy trying things and being made up, Chuna was busy doing this:

Cam whoring!!
i should have known.

The outcome: Tidak la jugak aku flawless. But i like the fact that the foundation looks natural on my skin.
Yes, i bought it!

After we're done playing Barbie, we dashed into Hafiz's waiting car. A little bit about Hafiz: He's a good friend of mine. My driver. My gossip buddy. My karaoke buddy. My whining buddy. My hot-chick-watching buddy. He's like a gay friend except for the fact that he's not gay. He's 100% straight. But he's like, gay., but not gay. OK, whatever.

As i am car-less at the moment, i asked him nicely to drive me to my tailor to get my newly altered baju kebaya. When we dropped Chuna at the Putra station, my eyes saw a steamboat stall. A real steamboat stall with bercucuk-cucuk yummy-looking steamboat. Yayyy! We singgah at the stall and enjoy the joy of tepi-jalan delicacies. Priceless.

The joy of eating hawker food.

Happy tummies = Happy faces!

Okay, mata saya sudah mengantuk. Nanite!

Chinese Lesson

Mr. Chenta is taking Mandarin course this semester.

He's like an excited 5-year-old boy who goes to school for the first time and so eager to learn EVERYTHING! Almost too cute.

As i took Mandarin course for 4 semesters in uni, i kinda know how to speak it. My darling baby is soooo taking advantage of this, treating me like his personal tutor.

Last week, he came to me "Bb, i have Mandarin oral test tomorrow. Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me in Mandarin!!"

So there we were, him trying so hard to pronounce it right, me laughing my ass off, he's scratching his head in confusion, me rolling on the floor laughing. He's like "Bb!! Serious la sikit.." or "Hey... Betul la.. Camtu la pronounce dier"

Then i asked him to read from the text book. To listen and correct his pronouncation. Boy, i swear he's practically shouting.. all the while i was right next to him!

Me: Bb, cakap slow-slow sikit la.. Gurl kat sebelah je ni kan..
Him: Tapi bb... Orang cina memang cakap camni la.. Diorang kan memang cakap kuat-kuat..
Me: But i'm right next to you! Bukan 20 meters away!
Him: Memang la.. But i want to be good at this, so i have to act like them.. Kene cakap kuat-kuat.
Me: But you sound like Maharaja Cina yang sakit gigi!!

i have to say, it's not really easy for us Malays to pronounce the Chinese words right. Terbelit-belit lidah oke.. Back then when i was learning and eager like my Mr. Chinese Emperor, i thought i was saying it right. Now i understand why my Chinese-speaking friends (Shaq and Ain), laughed like there's no tomorrow when they're teaching me. i must've sounded like my Mr. Chinese Emperor. Hurmpf!

Anyway, for the whole one hour Mandarin lesson, we laughed more than he actually learning/me actually teaching. In the end, i asked him to learn from YouTube (my God, they have LOADS of those language teaching videos). i pretended to read (and shaking with silent laughter) while he's shouting the Chinese words confidently.

Since he started this Mandarin course a few month ago, he always send me text messages like these: 

 Translation: You're so pretty
(haha.. yeah, right bb!)

Translation: How are you! I love you!
(notice the exclamation marks? i can imagine his Chinese Emperor voice. Hahahaha)

He's my very own joker. i laugh a lot more when i'm with him. i don't know what i'd do without him.

Child Abuse

It’s unbelievable the way people behave these days.

I stumbled into this piece of news:

It makes me sad, angry, and furious.

In this another child abuse news, a woman not only abuse her stepdaughter repeatedly, she threw her own 9-month-old son into a pond nearby her house. Talk about psycho!

It is reported that she has been abusing her 4-year-old daughter repeatedly for the last 9 months (gigit, pijak badan budak tu, and latest – bantai sampai patah bahu/lengan).

Seriously, what happened to people these days? What are they thinking? Dera budak, sexually abuse budak, buang budak.. Don’t they have hearts? Those are children! Innocent, vulnerable children. They need protection, attention. They need to be LOVED! Not to be hit, threw around, punched, and definitely not a sexually disposable object. It shouldn't hurt to be a child.

It breaks my heart.

Sometimes I wonder, why do these psychopath people blessed with children while many other loving, hopeful couples out there desperately love and want children but unable to conceive. Why oh why?

Yes, maybe I can’t say anything yet because I’m not a mom. But I can differentiate between punishing children as a mean to teach them and downright abuse them. Nau'zubillah.

Seriously, throwing your own son into a fish pond???

I really hope people like this gets heavy, out-of-this-worldly punishment(s). There's no excuse for child abuse.

Come Home

Right now i'm obsessed with this song by One Republic featuring Sara Bareilles, COME HOME. Beautiful voices, soothing melody, meaningful lyrics.

Come Home - One Republic feat. Sara Bareilles

Hello world
Hope you're listening
Forgive me if I’m young
For speaking out of turn
There’s someone I’ve been missing
I think that they could be
The better half of me
They’re in their own place trying to make it right
But I’m tired of justifying
So i say you’ll..

Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long
For so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all i see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
So come home

I get lost in the beauty
Of everything i see
The world ain’t as half as bad
As they paint it to be
If all the sons
If all the daughters
Stopped to take it in
Well then hopefully the hate subsides and the love can begin
It might start now..Yeahh
Maybe I’m just dreaming out loud
Until then

Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long
For so long
Right now there's a war between the vanities
But all i see is you and me
And the fight for you is all I’ve ever known

Ever known
So come home

Everything i can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why i need you here
Everything i can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why i need you here
So hear this now

Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long
For so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all i see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known

Ever known
So come home
Come home

p/s: i can't find the video clip in YouTube. i just have the song. Anyway, hope you enjoy it!

Si Gemok dan Si Kurus

i believe that every single woman in this world is concerned about their weight. Concerned, if not obsessed.

Just look at all means of weight loss products and services available nowadays; diet pills, slimming corsets, liposuction, gym membership, diet drinks, slimming programs, exercise machines..

i admit, i am one of those concerned (if not obsessive) women.

i measure my weight on weekly basis. i measure the inches on my body on days that i feel overly fat and perasan-ly thin.

i have to admit, i gained a few (significant!) kgs in the last 2 years. i really blame it on growing up and being employed. In my university years , i was kinda thin that friends and family were confident that i'm aneroxic (d-uhh!).

Buttttt..... As soon as i started working, badan ini bagaikan dipam-pam! Ye laa.. dah ade duit sdiri, makan pon ikot suke laa.. And it doesn't help when they serve buffet on company trips/bussiness courses. Hurmpff!

It's not that i hate my body now.. i kinda like my curve. But a few inches off  the tummy could REALLY help!


In the past few weeks, i've been receiving positive comments about my weight. People that i havent seen in a long time and suddenly terserempak would say things like:

"Hey.. awak dah kurus laa"
"Babe, i don't know why but you definitely look slimmer"
"Teefa...have u lost weight?"
"Haritu kan.. ko pakai seluar ni macam ketat.. Sekarang longgar gler".

Hehe.. I don't know if they're trying to be nice or what but these comments really make my days. It makes me determined to try to maintain (if not lose) weight.

Sampai lahhhh satu hari ni (today to be exact)... i went to my Grand's house in Damansara. Atok looked at me with extra scruitinized eyes and say " Teefa, ko dah GEMOK la.. Kenape tibe-tibe GEMOK ni?"

i was like *panic* "Ye ke?? Mane ade la tokkk"

He went like " Ye laa.. Ko ni, jaga lah badan.. Nanti muda2 dah GEMOK.. Ko tak tau ke macam-macam penyakit sekarang ni.. bla.. bla.. bla.. Pegi la exercise.. bla.. bla.. bla.. Jaga makan.. bla.. bla.. bla.. At least gi skipping.. bla.. bla.. bla.." and went on babbling about weight management, illnesses, cholestrol, bla.. bla.. bla.

i was practically sobbing inside. Aku dah GEMOK balik ke? Tapi baru tadi Angah cakap aku dah kurus.. More sobs inside.

Bottom line is, fat and thin is a really subjective matter. Well, at least in my case. i can be slim in some people's eyes and fat in other people's eyes (in mine and Atok's eyes). i find it really hard to satisfy myself, let alone satisfying everybody else.

Seriously... AKU DAH GEMOK BALIK???????

i don't wanna be like this!!
*random picture from Flickr*

But i don't wanna be like this either!

Fat and slim me.

Giant Feet

If there is one thing I REALLY hate about my body, it’ll be my size 9 (sometimes 10) feet.

Seriously. I have superhuge feet for a 157cm tall girl.

It’s embarrassing. Really.

Here are some proof:

Miss A:  Hey… lawanye kasut..tinggi la..tak sakit kaki ke?
Me:       *grinned sheepishly*  Tak saket la.. Oke je pakai..
Miss A:  Meh sini.. aku nak try.. *put on shoes*gasp* Ehhhhh…Besar nye kasut ko.. Saiz brape ni???
Me:       *hot in the face*  Um… Size 9…
Miss A:   OMG! Seriously? Ko tak la tinggi sangat.. Besar nye kakiiiiiii!!
Me:       *almost die*


Mr. A:   OMG nyahhh… Hot la kasut ko…Meh aku nak try..*dash for my shoes*
Me:       *watch helplessly.. but hey.. no way he’ll fit in my shoes*
Mr. A:   Ehhhhh…aku muat la kasut ko! Saiz brape ni?
Me:      *gap in horror* Saiz 9…Umm.. Nanti longgar la ko pakai weh…
Mr. A:   Tak la nyah… Kite same size la.. Aku pakai ni pon longgar haa…*giggles* boleh la aku
              catwalk      *began catwalking*
Me:      *close to tears*

Seriously… dude can fit AND catwalk in my shoes?

I don't know from where this giant feet gene comes from.. From my observation, none of my other family members have feet as giant as mine.

Most of the time, I don't mind about the size.. They're just feet right? *try menyedapkan hati*
But it does bother me when i can't find the right shoe size.. Size 8 is too small, and size 9 is too big. Or size 9 is too small, and size 10 is too big. Andddd.... the look on the salesperson face when i ask for a size 10 pump. Priceless.

In the end, i'm just thankful i have feet. To think of it, some people don't right? *bersyukur*

My giant, vine-y foot.

Socked feet are happy feet!

Review on Cuci the Musical

Last night me, Mr. Chenta and my collegues went to watch Cuci the Musical at Istana Budaya.

It's my first theater (yeahhhhh...can u believe that?) and i didn't know what to expect... or what to wear (IB has the dress code and all)..

At the very last minute i chose to wear a NafNaf dress and H&M jacket..

And as for the musical, two words, bebeh:

Insanely funny, highly entertaining, beautifully created.

Okay, i can't stop at two words. even these 6 words can't do the musical justice.

The musical is about four kampung-boy brothers who are working as cleaners at their own company. Led and guided by the eldest brother, Fairil, their ultimate dream is to enter Window Washing Olympic (WWO) and be the champion so that they'll win a contract to clean the Petronas Twin Towers.

But big dreams always come with big hurdles. To be on top, they have to overcome the other 3 brothers (C'tan, Jojo, and Khai) lack of enthusiasm and face a bald badass, Wira of Wiramaju (4 years champion of WWO).

However, it's not all competition in this story. Romance is in the air when CJ, the hot boss who's company organizes WWO (who's also Wira the badass girlfriend) falls for Khai and Farah (CJ's secretary) falls for Jojo.

Cast includes Hans Isaac (director cum actor - as Khai), Afdlin Shauki (Fairil), AC Mizal, (C'tan), Awie (Jojo), Vanida Imran (CJ), Adibah Noor (Farah) and Harith Iskander (Wira).

Seriously, this musical is well directed. Great story line, well-picked actors, and good sound system. And i really admire the dancers. How i wish i could dance, sing, and act like them :p

In fact i think i should be doing theater, intead of being in this Oil & Gas industry. Hahaha... JOKING!

Sadly, i didn't bring my camera.. It's my first ever theater and i forgot to bring my camera!! Hurmpf!
