Take five

I have this urge to write something but the minute I want to write it down I just don't know how to say it. :P So much of mix emotions inside wanting to burst out. I guess I just can't seem to concentrate on my work at this moment so I just take 5 and drop by my personal blog and release whatever I feel here to make me feel better. Usually it works.....well, most of the time it does.

My PC is really testing my patience.....so did my HP today actually. But, I just kept calm and carried on with work. I realise, no point in thinking too much about it. Instead of panicking.....just think of how to solve the problem. And before you know it, you'll find a solution. Well.....sometimes it works that way and sometimes it doesn't. I'm just tired of getting panicked about it that's all. So, I just "buat dek" je laaaa hehehe......and go with the flow.

Went for a search for felt this afternoon but couldn't find any. I wonder if they do sell it here in Alor Setar. Does anybody know?? Do tell.......I would really love to buy some here. Where would one find them anyway?? At the fabric shop?? Or........a special craft shop?? I just don't know where else to buy them other than buying them online. That would be the easiest way though. Click here and there and before you know it, it arrives at your doorstep! Easy peasy!

Aaahhhhh work beckons......so lazy to continue at this hour.....but but but......I gotta do what I gotta do coz no one will help do it for me right? :P

Right at this moment.....my mood: major cranky, major emo, major hungry for chocolates and french fries or anything that is fried and crispy, major itchy and major sleepy. Sekian terima kasih. :P

p.s. This is post number 777.....cool number right? ;)

Down

Wow....it's been a while since I last blogged here. Have not been feeling well for the past few days. I still don't feel well today. It sucks being sick isn't it? :P Especially when it's 24/7 thingy. It also sucks when I've finally found a solution to my health problem but couldn't afford to buy it. Yup....feel so sad about that. :(

I don't even have the spirit to work. Feel like whatever I do now, is a little forced. I can't seem to concentrate on my work because of the pain and the itch....it really does bother me a lot. Walking for me now is especially hard....as I can feel my skin crack every time I make my steps. I'm not in a good mood and temperamental. It's not good....not good at all. Just want to be left alone most of the time and rest rest rest......but that's not possible right now. Lot of work to be done.

Got problems with my PC as well. Just yesterday it kept giving me problems. I am not sure if it has anything to do with virus or something else. I just hope it's nothing serious as I got tons of work to be done and if something goes wrong with it.....I'll be in a big trouble. I almost missed the quilling blog hop I participated this evening because of it. Luckily I managed to get it done on time without any problem. Thank you God! Alhamdulillah!

Hope this is just a temporary thing...........hope it will all go away soon.

Mind over matter

Had to drag myself out of the house this morning to workout at the park. I just had to. But before getting on my bike, I just didn't have the mood to go at all. The minute I stepped on the paddle, I immediately remembered why I love to cycle in the first place. Strange....but true. 

It's the morning air you see......that's what kept me going. Something about that fresh morning air that makes you feel good inside.Cycling in the morning, breathing in that fresh cool air is a bliss! :)

I know something is wrong with me......something doesn't feel right. Something is missing. I'm trying to make it better but somehow it's not happening the way I want it. Just have to accept that fact for now. But I'm glad I went to the park this morning even though I didn't feel like it. Sometimes you just have to force yourself to do it even if your body refuse to budge. Mind over matter.

I just have less than a week now to get most of my work done before my short getaway.....huhuhu..... >.<

The Tides of Providence

I came across this inspirational poem today that I love so much and would love to share it with everyone. It's from a poet named Patience Strong. That is her pen name by the way. Her real name is Winifred Emma May. The poem is entitled "The Tides of Providence". Love it so much! :)  

 
It’s not what you gather, but what you sow,
That gives the heart a warming glow.
It’s not what you get, but what you give,
Decides the kind of life you live.

It’s not what you have,
But what you spare.
It’s not what you take,
But what you share

That pays the greater dividend
And makes you richer in the end.
It’s not what you spend upon yourself
Or hide away upon a shelf,

That brings a blessing for the day.
It’s what you scatter by the way.
A wasted effort it may seem.
But what you cast upon the stream
Comes back to you recompense
Upon the tides of providence.

May

I just can't wait for 1st of May.......seriously.

What will I see in the first 6 months.....?

Hopefully 6 months is all I need to see some really good results. Because so far, the first 3 months has already put a  little smile on my face. 

I sometimes do wonder, what if 6 months is not enough......what if after 6 months, nothing much has improved? What's next? Should I just continue doing what I'm doing now or should I seek something else....some other alternative?

There seems to be no answers to my questions now......I just carry on doing what I think is right and wait patiently for May. Only time will tell.............if nothing good comes in May......then maybe I'll have to wait for the next 6 months after that......that's all I can do. :(

May I find my answers in May.........

The heat



The hot season is back in town! Yeeehaaaa! It's hot hot hot over here.......so much so that you can actually cook an egg on the concrete floor outside the house. LOL!

It's been a while since Alor Setar been hit by the hot weather. I remember what it was like last year. Terrible heat I'm telling you......during these times, the air conditioner is our savior and cold drinks are a favourite during the afternoons. In fact, I'm sipping a nice cold mug of Milo as I'm blogging right now hehehe! I haven't had a cold one like this for a long long time.

One thing great thing about the hot weather is that it's great for doing laundry. It will dry your clean laundry in no time! tehehehe! I've done my laundry this morning and they all dried up long before lunch time. So fast!

The hot season is gonna stay here for a while.........so, I can't complain.....just go with the flow......and drink as much Milo ice as I can.....hahahaha.....hey....why not ya? It's cooling and it makes me happy ;)

Productive day

A very very very productive day it has been indeed! Even though I got up a little late this morning but at least I got my work done at the end of the day. :)

My brain is working so much lately.......feeling a little dizzy......but it's good no? To be working the brain a lot rather than having it just sitting there not doing anything right? It's very important to use our brain everyday.....otherwise it will loose it's function. Huhuhu.....I never want that to happen......so we gotta keep it working ya! ;)

Just visiting

I haven't blogged for 2 days! Gosh! There goes my dream of blogging non stop everyday for one whole year! hahaha!! I was really hoping to achieve that dream this year but what to do....huhu...the inevitable happened and I had to miss those 2 days. Oh well! Perhaps I should just try blogging everyday non stop for a month first and see how I can achieve that hehehe. That would be a good practice for me :).

I was not at home yesterday from morning till very late in the afternoon because I was in Parit Buntar with my family. Visited a very close relative there. Had a great time with my Pak Ngah and Mak Ngah. She cooked for us lunch as she normally would if we ever came to visit. Pak Ngah does not like to eat outside food....so lunch at home is the best choice for them. 

That's me feeling giddy posing with my most soft spoken aunt who is such a sweet person too :) She was the one who took the trouble to cook all the yummy food below :).


 These were menu for lunch.....fish curry, fried chicken, grilled fish etc etc... ;)



But I loved this dessert the best! She made it a little different because she used brown sugar instead of white sugar, so that's why you see it's kinda brown in color. It's called "Serawa labu" or "Pengat labu". Labu is pumpkin, by the way :).

Today.....is stay at home and do work day haha.....lots of work lined up for this month.....and I've just got about 2 more weeks before another "getaway" ;). So I better get all my work done before that day comes.

Sensitive tooth

Maybe due to the cold weather or just plain sensitive.......not sure which one is the cause but my tooth is killing me right now. I can't seem to work when there is this unbearable pain in the mouth. I guess the tooth is acting up again. 

I had it checked and fixed by the dentist months ago......and I'm supposed to see the dentist again for another check up.......well actually it's gonna be more than just a simple check up. I'm supposed to go through another sickening procedure. That's why I've been postponing it. :P

Pain pain go away...................................................................... :'(


Note: Although there is much pain now......I'm pinching myself still about the awesome offer I received today. Am I still dreaming or was it really real?  I guess number 6 is a lucky number for me this year hehehu..

Mendung


A view from the window in my studio......it's been raining all day......hujan rahmat :).
Cuaca mendung jer.... sejuknya Tuhan saja yang tahu. Rasa macam tinggal di luar negeri pun ada hehehehe!

Dah banyak hari dah asyik hujan ja di sini........harap-harap tak ada la nak banjir pula dalam masa yang terdekat nih di sini.

Hmmm.....can't help but think about what happened yesterday evening.....it was a really memorable day. I'll never see  my Paypal the same way again hehehehe. I guess there's always a first in everything. So happy about that. :)

Even though it's just the first month of the year......kekadang rasa macam lemah semangat pun ada. But....I'm trying my best to keep myself motivated and be in high spirits. Must never give up....no matter what.

The pen

Pretty exhausting day.

But full of surprises and good news. Alhamdulillah. :)

Drove out to my fave stationery shop this afternoon to get some supplies but after shopping there I lost one item on my way back to my car. Booohooohoo... :'( I didn't realise that the plastic bag was torn  at the bottom and the pen I bought slipped out of it as I was walking towards the car. I only realised it was lost the minute I reached home. Sigh.......I was really looking forward to do some experiments with that pen. For sketching mostly and for writing wordings on cards. Luckily it was not that expensive. But I was not upset about losing money over the lost pen. I was upset because I was so excited on using the pen and right this instant I can't. Gotta go and get a new one soon. 

Funny how one small thing like that can be such a huge deal for me. It's not like I lost a piece of gold or some jewelry. It was just a pen! There's something about the things that are related to my craft work that somehow gives such a huge impact on me. And the strange thing is, I found out that, it's not just me. Some of my friends feels the same way about it too. We sometimes feel like it's a waste of money to spend on a lot of clothes or other girly stuff. But we never feel it's waste of money to spend on our craft materials. Strange. 

We would always give excuses for buying them. No matter how silly the excuses can be. As long as we get them. Sooner or later......we have to have it! It's in our wish list. hehe! And yes.....that pen, was in my wish list. Believe it or not......

p.s. I hope whoever found the pen is having loads of fun with it.... :P

Magika


Last night I actually watched this movie "Magika" on Astro. If you knew me well, you would be very very surprised as to why I watched it. Well, I watched it mainly because I was so curious to know if the movie was good or not since it won so many awards recently.

I gotta admit......the screenplay was pretty ok.....no time at all for me to feel bored as it was pretty fast moving. Initially I only wanted to watch it for 10 minutes. In the end......I watched the whole thing!. :P But.....there were many times I had to turn off the sound of the TV because I couldn't stand listening to Dania Danielle and Mawi singing hahahaha! Awful!!! Can't take it! So I had to turn off the sound for a while until they finished singing. LOL! They sang a few times in the movie......so I had to turn off the volume a few times too! hehe! I didn't want my ears to bleed. :P

Honestly since it's a musical......so most of the characters in this movie had to sing out some of their dialogues. I've seen a lot of musicals before and this particular one seems funny to me hehehe.....well, I applaud them for trying their best to make a good musical....but I know they can do better next time.

There were a few scenes in the movie that I love......pretty funny! One example is the part when the Nenek Kebayan answered the phone (which was made from an empty tin). I really didn't expect that! It reminded me of my childhood days! We used to play like that when we were younger. And Ziana Zain is so funny! She's a really good actress. Love her! I think she was the most outstanding in the movie.

Another thing that caught my eyes was a scene with Adibah Noor in it where I saw they made a TV using the "wayang kulit"! So cool! Wonder who thought of that idea! haha! :D It's so funny! Imagine having a TV like that. Pretty interesting!

Overall, I would give the movie 3 stars. And honestly I can only watch it once. Once is enough. hehehe! :)

Happy New Year 2011

Happy New Year everyone!!! It's 1.1.11 today! That is such a nice number ya? :). 

;) So excited! This is the first post for my personal blog this new year. It's like writing a new chapter of my life. I'm very pleased with the new blog layout. I've changed it a few times before deciding on this one. And I love it! It looks so bright and fresh! I love waking up to this new view everyday. It's nice for a change. Out with the old and in with the new. :)

Since it's a new year......a new beginning......I'm making plans for some changes in my life. Why not right? We can't keep on doing the same things year in year out. There's gotta be some changes. :) The changes will make our lives much more interesting :).

New year resolutions? Of course I have some in my new list. :) Don't want to get over ambitious about it. Just jotting down what I believe I can achieve by year end. It's gotta be realistic.

I guess I've gotten tired of certain things in my life......so much so that I'm so determine to see them change this year. The sooner the better. It's not going to be easy, I know. But it's a good thing. It's a good challenge for me.

I just want a chance to start over my life again.....do things right this time. Mistakes happen unintentionally. I'm only human. Everyone makes mistakes in their lives. But we owe it to ourselves to make that change. Time flies before us so fast.....so much so that before we know it we have reached the destination. But I before I reach it, I wanna make sure I achieve certain things first.

I know I can do it.......................if everyone else can.....why not me? :) It's a choice really. Do or do not!
