Huh?

When I first took d challenge, I found d hurdles. Lots of it
"Jangan sampai nama kita kena petik", saya ingatkan mereka. 

Tapi setengah orang memang dilahirkan untuk menyelamatkan dunia mungkin. Dia ada super power, jadi pakai seluar dalam di luar pun, dia relaks..

I was devastated with d outcome here. Mereka fikir ini benda kecil kah? Reputation kot...

Setelah difikirkan 80kali, saya memilih untuk menanti arahan. Kalau dipetik kita bergerak. Kalau tidak, biarlah, no point. 
Ada banyak lagi jalan lain ke syurga:)

Today, I got a text mesage asking for e-mail, as d sender put it, easier to diseminate info. 

Hehe..
Zaman sekarang orang diseminate info via whatsapp group or telegram ye. I rarely open my e-mail account. 
Besides, last year we were given a form to fill. Semua info ada dalam tu.
After a year, I m not sure mereka baca atau tidak. 

Sorry... saya masih rasa terhina dengan kejadian tu. Reputation kot...

Saya pun bukan serba sempurna, tapi saya fikir, kalau nak pergi miting bawa pen sebatang, homework tak buat, follow-up xder, teamwork spirit yillek, bangga pulak tu bila kelemahan pihak sendiri dicanangkan langsung takder effort nak siasat duduk perkara...

Saya cuma ada satu perkataan saja.
Fed up.


Okkk..
Dat is 2 words

Tetiba..

1. Kawan menteri.
Menteri mana saya x mo tulis.
Cuma tetiba seseorang tanya saya,
" Menteri XXXX tu kawan Ijan kan?".
Menteri dari Parti yang kurang saya senangi, terhina betul saya rasa.
"Tak..", saya jawab pendek.
"Derang kata, derang baca kat fesbuk Ijan".
Duh... saya x pernah tulis begitu. Tak mungkin. Kalaupun saya  cemolot dengan mana2 VVVIP, tak pernah saya declare di media sosial.
"Eh... yang kawan ngan menteri tu, senior kita la kak sewaktu mereka di UK. Kita kawan ngan akak sorang je kak", saya jawab bila teringat
Well... kakak tu bukan aktif di media sosial pun...
Sapa pulak yang gigih membawang ni:)


2. Seperti dahulu.
Dulu ada orang suka kirim2kan klip video lucu atau yang seram dengan niat mengusik. Saya sangat hargai sebab saya pun suka ketawa sampai jatuh kerusi.
Tapi bila hal2 kerjaya dia lebih suka bercakap di belakang dan tarik muka berjemaah pula tu. Setahun, 3,4 tahun saya chillex dulu, tapi bila Abang Bro dan TheOldFriend pindah dia teamed up dengan rakan2nya dan setahun dua kebelakangan ini saya fikir kesabaran yang saya wayangkan sudah sampai ke penghujung.
The final blow was when I found out ada tangan2 ajaib doing something which I've written at great length in this blog months ago.
In 2014 beliau dan rakan2nya dah pernah buat begitu dan sampai sekarang masih berterusan, saya fikir cukup2lah...
Cuma, takder masa pula saya nak pungpangpang. Kalau pertolongan saya diperlukan, berlari saya membantu, just because he treated me badly, doesn't mean I have to stoop to his level too.
Hahahahaha...
Here comes best part.

On my capacity as Ketua Derjah Kecik gilerr I wrote in d group dat I have to re-schedule as I might fly on dat date. Cerita habis di situ. I don't elaborate as there is a change in government so I m not sure it will approve by d ministry or not.

Then comes d well-wishes message. Aikkk... sejak team up dengan geng Lindungan Kaabah x pernah wish pun🤣🤣🤣
Tetiba cerita2 lucu yang  terhenti sejak tahun 2015 muncul kembali untuk dikongsi. 🙄

Dulu saya layan sebab kami ada banyak kerja yang mesti dilakukan bersama. Sekarang, bukan awak ke yang pulaukan kita n keep doing/saying things behind my back.
Perlu ke nak bermesej perkara yang sangat tidak perlu dan tidak ada kena mengena dengan dunia kerjaya?

Dear Yu,
Yang belajar sehingga 28 senawi tu awak, yang sesuci embun pagi pun awak. So, please stop sending text messages. Kalau nak tau perkembangan terkini saya (so that u can brag to everyone how nice n caring u r to err...everyone) u can always ask.

There will be NO MORE rahsia kita berdua. 
Sampai kehujung nyawa kita berdua.
Noktah

How was ur raya?

Mine was splendid.
Everyone came back on d first day raya and had beef soup on d Raya Eve.

This year Acho sedekah daging for... I dunno for whom, but it is part of his tradition to sedekah during Eid.

On d Raya Eve, ada UPACARA bercerita. Splendid. Luqman buka kedai maka beratur ramai2 gunting rambut.

On Raya morning, everything was fine as mom insisted to have Nasi Daging by Angah. Ramai orang, saya pun x sempat rasa.. Ermmm..

Late afternoon Uda n I visited our colleague who is diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer. She was full of laughter and very cheerful. I could feel d positive vibes despite all this while we were not so close judging from d not-so-nice-stories she spreads about us. Of course we r aware of it 🤣🤣🤣
Now seeing her so happy n full of life, I guessed d saying, bila Allah uji  rakan2, mungkin sebenarnya Allah sedang menguji kita juga.
Semoga kita semua berjaya dalam ujian kiriman Allah.

Whatever it is, saya pun tak tau berapa lama lagi Allah pinjamkan nikmat usia. Ermmm..

Kalau ada orang yang terus-terusan melayan kita bagai sampah, saya fikir elok kita jauhkan diri. Putuskan semua hubungan peribadi. Letakkan jarak, dan jika tidak kerana urusan profesional, bertegur sapa pun tidak perlu.

Kurang sikit hati kita disakiti.
Andai mereka diuji dengan kehilangan harta, kasih sayang atau kesihatan, hati kita lebih ikhlas untuk menghulurkan bantuan.

Hidup ini singkat sangat.
Harta yang dikejar tak mungkin cukup.
Nama, pangkat dan pengiktirafan yang direbut, belum tentu sama nilai dengan kasih sayang sahabat, sanak saudara dan keluarga yang kita korbankan.


Satu hari bila kita buka mata, tengok2 kain putih pembalut tubuh.
Ermmm...

Jadi kita chillex sudah
Enjoy quality time with family.
Find time to do charity.
Go travel. See d world.
Savour great food:)

Selamat Hari Raya!

Azhan we hate chuu

I m referring to his character in Nur drama. In real life I've seen many ustaz dualam like him, trust me, he played his role very well up to d point bila cerita pukul 7 tu he was there as Abang Ali yang baik hati, I switched off d tv. Eh hello..
Kau x layak jadi baik kott .

In d interview in MHI recently, d director said he wanted to produce a heavy issue drama which anyone can relate to. He succeed.

Except for Ms Fatimah who lacks soul in her acting (atau mungkin saya yang berharap lebih), d rest r superb, including d younger brother whom I didnt know his name is.

Ok one, Deeja or whatever her character's name is, she is so kayu kayan. Furthermore, long fingernail is a no no when u portrayed urself as someone from pious family.

Yang lain xder komen
I hope Azhan will win the supporting role, because he did a brilliant job.




Of run and dream

For a start, saya fikir kalau saya ada kuasa, benda pertama yang saya akan tukar ialah Larian Merentas Desa. Membosankan dan discriminating.

Larian berskala besar sepatutnya menggembirakan, tapi kot dilaksanakan sewaktu matahari tegak di atas kepala, saya pun tak sudi nak lari. Tu belum cerita pasal bib tulis tangan dari kain bulu2 tu, sangat kurang memberi motivasi.

Besides, kenapa hanya 1-10 saja yang dapat hadiah? Pencapaian tak seharusnya diukur cepat atau lambat sampai ke garisan penamat. Dah sah2 kanak2 obesiti atau bermasalah kesihatan sehingga kehujung nyawa pun tak mungkin mampu memegang pingat. The fact they can finish their run is supposed to be an achievement.

While podium is out of their reach, why not the run being a turning point for them to lead a healthy life. Give them medals to bring home, to hold, to embrace and to inspire them to achieve the unthinkable (with an additional cost of course!)

There r many running events all year through tapi mahalnya Ya Allah... I am glad there is a generous organiser like Sultan Nazrin Birthday Run. It is free for U15 and a very minimum fee for other categories. (I hope they made some profits!)

Last year I registered few kids after discussed with TheOtherFriend. Unfortunately, mungkin lebih banyak yang kami berdua perlu pelajari tentang cara berkerja masing-masing sebelum berfikir untuk berkerjasama semula as it did not turn out well. Syukur saya sempat let go semua bib kepada yang lebih memerlukan melalui kumpulan Whatapps pelari tempatan.

Tahun ini saya berhasrat untuk berkerjasama dengan orang lain pula. Dengan yakinnya saya bercadang ingin menyewa bas dan membawa 40 girls for the exciting yearly running event.

Gigih saya kira bajet and I even planned to contact my Kuala Kangsar District Commissioner friend for tourist guide n place to set up tent. Told u, I want to make running an affordable yet interesting  event for everyone, especially kids.

Awal2 saya dah suruh kawan2 saya bersedia dengan senarai nama dan nombor kad pengenalan the girls.
"Cepat sebab nanti berdesup slot kena sambar", saya ingatkan mereka.

The registration started at 7th June. It was such a hassle to get through. I tried after Sahur on the next day while texting my friends to do the same...

Guess what????
The 6000 slots were sold out..
😢😢😢😢😢😢
I am aware that it is d most-awaited-running event in Malaysia but sold out in one day😢
Saya sendiri pun tak sempat register. Mereka register taim bila wehhhh?????

"Keciwanya...." saya beritahu semua orang. Semua pun dengar dan angguk2...
Mereka tak mungkin faham 😭😭😭

"I was allocated 6 slots. Do you want one?"  someone texted a day later. I know it was meant for his old boys clan n his generosity is much appreciated.

Mungkin impian nak menyemai minat bersukan secara konsisten dalam diri the girls (so that they wont end up leading a sedentry life like moi) belum lagi Allah makbul. Tapi kiriman rakan yang baik hati dari-Nya sangat saya syukuri.

Semoga Allah rahmati hidup rakan-rakan saya juga:)
Aminn...

Tapau

Arif came straight to #12A from his workplace. He arrived at 7.15p.m. I was ready for iftar.

"Adik... ingat tak jadi datang", I lamented... because I already cooked. I m thrilled beyond words.

After performing Maghrib prayer we went to TR Tomyam for Buka Puasa buffet. There were still many food left.Yippee..

Arif took scrambled egg which he claimed surprisingly nice and crispy, spice fried chicken and some vege. I had squid salad, fried prawns with ginger and grilled fish. Of course a plateful of crabs n clams with black pepper sauce. Yummy..

Before long we were accompanied by Bibik who keep asking us to try this and that. A very nice lady indeed.

When we told her we were so full, she took d plastic bag n packed tomyum, squid salad n salty fish kailan for us   haha... d untouched grilled fish also packed.

Hari2 saya bersyukur jumpa orang yang penuh kasih sayang.
Semoga murah rezeki toke kedai dan Bibik itu juga.
Aminn

Domestic sangatt..

It is good when u can lie-in on Monday morning:)

Spent 2 hours playing games. Heaven!!!

Then cuci kain n make samosa filling. While waiting for it to b done, I started cleaning d refrigerator. Settled.
Flowery💐💐💐 hati saya bila tengok semua bahan2 untuk kuih raya bersejuk2 dalam peti ais secara berjemaah🤣🤣

Once done ( d cooking n d cleaning) saya gentel jem 🍍nenas untuk buat tat🍍. I might bake tonight, or after Subuh tomorrow depends on my mood. 😉

Then, I went out to dry laundry. It took less than 5 mins n later I took out d popia skin. 

Buat samosa pula. Untuk rekod malam tadi saya dah siap 100pcs mini popia. Saya suka buat kuih, sebab selalu mak saya pun suka.

Siap samosa tu, saya siang ikan n kukus with ginger n lime.
Awal??

Eh saya memang suka buat kerja awal2..

Passion flare, secret unravel



Been trying to finish this book for quite some time. Reason being, need to focus on marking n later, d editing.

Now d school hol resume I could read whenever I like. Hephephurray..

Will upload d book later
#sigh

Another day with mommy

Last week we went to Day Market in Sungkai. Today mommy requested to go again. D market is so huge!
Saya ok je.. . Uda joined us.

Punyalah ramai orang n getting a parking space was such a hassle. Akhirnya I got.. ngee...

Mom bought lots of things or d truth is, kita yang suruh2 dia beli hahahag...

I didnt but anything though...
But i really treasured time soent with mommy.  😍😍😍

2 hours later we w3nt home. 
I packed things n went back to #12A. 

I didnt start baking yet..
Unfortunately.. mood yillekk so I made popia instead.

Maybe tomorrow I will go home n send d popia n samosa .. hahahhaha




Part 2..

When I finished with my steal, mommy had done her salty fish shopping as well. D nyonya complained she lost too much weight though..

"Talipon Cu kamu ye", she instructed. Aiseyyy... 2 hours before I've called but she did not pick up. I didnt put much hope..

Her luck.
Cu pick up and agreed to help mommy. Maka kami pun pergi ke Kedai Emas Dzul.
2 hours we were there. Penatnya tuhan saja yang tau...
Twin n I main games saja in d crowded shop.

Obviously mommy was very satisfied with her bargain. Mahal nak mampppsss... #sigh..
Thanks to my aunt who help her out.
We parted our way and dashed to Tf.

Mommy was really exhausted as it was very hot and humid. RM356 later we went home n satu kerja saya punggah barang sensorang aa everyone at home were taking nap .

By Asar.. everything was done plus washing bedcover n duvet. Saya baring dan... bila celik mata hari dah gelap n everyone was either dah masuk bilik nak solat atau kat bilik air.

Thats was when my saw me and asked, "bila balik?".

"Mak... orang ada dalam bilikla tidur... kenapa mak tak kejut?", saya tanya.
Mak cuma geleng kepala dan cakap dia pun tertidur dan hanya bangun pukul 6 petang. She thought I long gone home as I told her saya nak baking.. hahahha

"Orang pun heran kenapa kau tidur beria sangat", Arif kata sambil ketawa. Dia tak kejut sebab kasihan dan lepas tu dia pun lupa...

To be honest.. both mommy n I were really exhausted. In fact, halfway home my mom fell asleep.
Dats y I never go out when I m fasting:)

Eh bila balik?

Bila kau bangun tidur n ur mom tegur cenggitu tak rasa nak nangis berguling ke?.
And it was 7.45p.m. I missed iftar sebab tertidur.

Let me start from the beginning.

Last week I  told my mom that I want to help her doing raya grocery this Saturday.
"Pergi Isninlah...", mommy said.
"Isnin orang puasa mak.", jawab anak bertuahnya itu.

Jadi selepas selesai cuci kain n kemas rumah, kami gerak. Sampai di Teluk Intan pukul 9.30 pagi. Tempat pertama kedai ikan masin.
Wajib!

Oh hari itu saya ada order kerusi tinggi dari kawan. RM50 each is a bargain sebab saya tengok kat IKEA ratus ratusan. Kebetulan Zira order untuk Sc Lab jadi dia beri harga murah sebab beli banyak. (In case u r wondering I will get separate invoice n receipt ye, thnx for asking🤣)

Out of curiosity, I went to d furniture store n survey d price. No ready stock but they might have them in d store.
By the way, d quite similar pattern but a bit lower in quality stool is sold at RM65.

Ook.. I followed d lady to d store, opposite d shop.

It is a two-storey old shophouse filled with furniture. Beds, wardrobes, kitchenettes, settees, coffee tables, racks, u name it.

"Kerusi di atas,", dia kata.
Oh no... d wooden ladder is so steep. Yang itu saya agak cuak.

Upstairs segala jenis kerusi ada. Kerusi pejabat, kerusi makan, kerusi taman, kerusi belajar, u name it.
High stool yang saya nak tu xder pulak...

"Kesian awak... penat buka stor kakak x beli pula", saya kata.
Serius penat masuk stor tu. Stuffy somemore.

"Takper la kak. Biasa saja. Tak beli pun tak apa" dia kata "lagipun kerusi yang akak nak tu x ada kan.." dia tambah.

Saya tak sampai hati dan beli kerusi kecil jenana 3V warna warna ada 9 warna jadi saya beli 9 at RM11 each. Katanya dia bagi sebab I was d first customer. When I checked at TF d same chair from dif brand priced at RM14.90. Aminnn..

While she get d chairs I looked around and enjoying d vast collection of chairs!

"How much is this bar stool?" , saya tanya. Bila dia cakap harga, I know I had strike a bargain!
Saya tak nak tulis harga as she mentioned few times, she gave me good bargain because I was d first. Ehem...

Jadi saya pun sambar dua!

Maka penuhlah bonet dan tempat duduk belakang tu...

Ook.. nak mandi kejap

Kita kan haluan kiri...

I was drowsy n laid on d sofa for a while. When I opened my eyes, Kak Sal n Fid were talking about... I do not know...

Maybe something about being d boss pet, apple polishing n all. I really dunno.
And Kak Sal acah2 sedih kata dia tak masuk dalam list, "kita kan haluan kiri".

Nope. I beg to differ.
"Takla kak. Sorang tu je yang kata akak haluan kiri.", saya cakap dengan serius dua rius. " Yang haluan kiri tu sorang je dan akak masuk dalam circle tu. It is not ur fault. Akak ok... bos2 yang lain semua sayangkan kita..."  saya tambah sambil petik nama our ex-bosses.

Yang labelkan Kak Sal haluan kiri tu, sampai ke hari ini saya masih contact🤣. Dia ok je. In fact saya ok je dengan semua bosses as long as derang jangan aniaya saya teruk2 🤣🤣🤣
Kalau sikit2 saya fikir memang selayaknya saya ditegur.

True enough. Sampai hari ini kami berdua masih kekal penuh kasih sayang dengan ex-bosses tu. We talked about them all d time n missed them so much. Saya tak mo tulis nama here nanti kot mereka google nama sendiri, terjumpa plak blog ni.

Saya fikir kalau d bosses tahu dan mahu buat kerja, Kak Sal n I will be in their good book. Hahaha...
Yang perangai Lindungan Kaabah will find us hard to work with.  Suffice to say, we don't play games. 🤣🤣🤣

Just now I read d news, one of our ex-superiors met a fatal accident. I m so sorry for d family n I wish to say something errr nice, but I just can't.

He was a good man but never d best superior. We were cordial n parted in a good way. Just like colleague did.

I made it a point to say HI whenever I happen to visit d ex-superiors new place, he was not one of them. But still, if we bumped into one another we still can engage in a small talk, just like friends do. He was a good man. That is for sure.

The news made me realised, being a Ketua Derjah myself, I wished I would make an impact in my subordinates' life. I wished them know, I really care about them n genuinely interested to help them grow. I wished I would be remembered fondly by them.

I strive to give my best without stepping on anyone's toe. But somehow my best is not good enough to some quarter, I hope they won't feel sidelined or discriminate because that it something I vow not to do. I aimed to be fair n just to everyone.

Orang kata, selagi diberi peluang, let us do d best for one another. Either people like it or not, jangan fikir, sebab bukan mereka yang kira dosa pahala. Jangan sibuk nak bagi nasihat acah2 ko maksum sangat, chillex sudah...

Bila sampai masanya kita akan dijemput pulang, yang dibawa cuma amalan.

Al-fatihah untuk ex-bosses n ex-superiors. May Allah showers u with rahmat in life n hereafter.



Selected listening.

I coined d term 🤣🤣
Ini sambungan entri sebelum ini.

Pagi2 Lida beritahu hari ini ada lagi briefing. Jadi saya printout minit taklimat sebelum ini.

Before that saya submit borang . I wasnt happy melayan kekhinziran ini yu know. But early in d morning two people came n asked me to. Ok... I hope this time d upper echelon better do their talk.

Baru je last week saya submit another form with a thick file of evidences boleh dia cakap, "ehhh tak payah... bagi borang je..". Like? Seriously???? Habis tu ko bagi markah guna apa? Acicatcilot?
It was 3 years assessment, how could you do d blunder?
Trust me... I wasn't happy at all. Kalau nak menipu, count me out. I worked hard to maintain my integrity.

Yeah... I wasn't happy melayan kekhinziran ini🤣🤣🤣.

"Come n hv a seat" d boss said, when I came with minute.
We have a brief discussion on previous meeting. Hal paragraph 3 dan 4 tu he has nothing to do jadi takderla dipetik🤣🤣🤣

Instead I asked about d heated argument among my frens vs Hazeda n I...

"Zeda, kita berdua yang salah, mereka tu betul", saya meluru sampaikan pada Zeda. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

"Tu lah..." yang lain ketawakan..

Yeah rite...
We both sentiasa fokus hal positif... tapi ada juga hal yang kami berdua kurang positif.

C'est la vie.
