Raya ke-3

Dulu masa kecik2, suka lah raya. Bila dah jadi mokcik2, raya means d end of Ramadhan, teruslah hati rasa sedeyyyy mengenangkan tadarus yang tak abes serta checklist yang tak berapa nak banyak ticked tu.

Saya pernah dengar ceramah, bila Allah tak berkehendakkan kita, Dia akan sibukkan kita dengan urusan dunia. Insaf.

Dalam sedih tak sedih tu, 4,5 pinggan juga habis...

This year Dhani dah pandai bercakap. It always fun listening to him n his brother, Danish. Paling tak menahan dia suka bergurau "poke", sakit gila kot..

Izzati came back on Friday, I fetched her at Behrang R&R. Her friends were on their way to Temerloh. Sometimes I could not believe our first niece is 21 and going to be a teacher in 3 years time.

Nadia, Zudin, Ecah n An came back a day later. Fun-filled raya after stormy affair over Emon, the cat. Poyo!!!

Arif took a long break, first time.
One of Acho's friends sembelih lembu to be distributed to the kampung-folk on Friday evening. So that night, all my bros n their friends lapah daging in front of #18.
Untung ada ramai adik lelaki. Saya tarik selimut n tidur.

We had our traditional soup on Raya eve. My sisters r good cook.
On d first raya, despite her condition, Nik n her daughters made Mee Rebus. Sedap gilerrr..

on 2nd raya, saya dah start puasa. Partly, saya takut tak sempat habis sebab saya tak larat sangat puasa hari kerja sekarang, mainly sebab saya sangat berharap tahun depan saya akan berpeluang dijemput ke tanah suci.

The keyword is JEMPUTAN.
Duit banyak, badan yang sihat, CGPA 4# pun belum tentu akan diizin ke sana.

Doa-doakanlah...,

Ramadhan 27: corot

I woke up at 3 a.m. Take bath, solat n did tadarus until 5a.m.
Stopped and had sahur.
Double cheese burger, thats it.

After Subuh prayer, I did d laundry. Then, went out.
On my way stopped and picked the newspaper. The shopkeeper greeted me warmly.

What a splendid day ahead.

Everything was great.
Talked to d kids. Browsed pics left by d kids, completed d task and all.
The calling letter which I requested was already uploaded in d portal.
I couldnt ask for more.
Thnx to Mr Shrul, if I were rich, memang beliau masuk dalam list yang saya nak kasi kereta sorang sebijik.
Mr Shril had already downloaded n diseminated it. Another in my list.

In a way, I m blessed working with great people.

I skipped assembly in order to prepare n send documents to MBD Muallim and Pusat Ko. It cant wait. Urgent matter..
Again, Mr Shril helped me with the fax thingy. Mokcik agak noob di situ..

Thanks, everything goes as planned.

Later, I tried to complete the lesson plan when twin came. Some of the parents are waiting.

I went up. The girls had arranged the chairs neatly.
Flowery hati mokcik...

I really love seeing d parent. Harap2 mereka pun begitu. I could see some improvement. 13/17 parents came.
An achievement!!!!

Once finished , I went down. I meant to write Reading Clinic notification for parents, text for public speaking and set up d committee members. Everything must be ready on the first day after Raya break.

Fid came.
"Tau tak kita antara 7 sekolah yang corot di daerah?", dia tanya. That is why d officers datang berjemaah d day before.

Hari mokcik yang indah terus suram bagai gerhana matahari.
Not again...
Masa tengah marah kita cakap bukan2..

Bila otak dah stabil, I contacted d officer terus. Senang! Mokcik x redha jadi corot.
Kot korang ingat dia boleh ejas supaya tak corot lagi, memang konfemla tidak.

We discussed about ways to improve.
Makcik bukak lappie dan terus taip pelan intervensi.

"Kena ada kerjasama", dia ingatkan lagi.
Last year bila dia cakap gitu , I was flabbergasted, nak kerjasama apa lagi?????

This year sebab Ezazul is in d team, I m really hopeful.
He is a team player.

Gigih mokcik kira how many must pass so that we can get 80% passes. I told them my plan. Nak kutuk mokcik poyo pun, I just couldnt care less.

Being corot Sangat memalukan.
Hari yang indah telah suram. I went to d office, jam DKNY tertinggal. I talked to Mr A about d printing, only to come back later, sebab lupa nak diskas about Reading Clinic n Public Speaking venue.


I locked up d door, only to realise, budu yang Jun kasi tertinggal on my table.
I wEnt home, talked to mommy then went back to 12A, then patah balik... saya tertinggal a packet of cornflakes.

On my way home, kepala masih tak stabil.
Jadi saya terus baking cookies. I need something to distract me. Pronto.


Now dah nak pukul seploh, baru saya teringat...

Baju kat ampaian tak angkat.

#stress

Ramadhan 26: yang berat itu amanah

Last week a friend told me that it is GG turn to conduct morning assembly. Actually my dearest sist, Yuni is in-charge, tapi saya fikir she is so busy lately, jadi saya terus plan n trained d kids,

Then, something unexpected happened.
I told Yuni n d kids how sorry I was.

I asked Rad to help out too.
Zaw took d pics.

Compared to my previous students yg kot dapat tablet, penuh muka selfie depa, this time around, I m quite surprised:)

Layan...

Dia dapat 25K, tapi saya ikhlas...

It is a tradition I will help out both TheOldFriend n TheOtherFriend print out d slips. Nak tolong yang lain saya pun lemah gemalai. Mokcik ikhlas...

ThIs time marked d first time saya dan TheOtherFriend tinggal berdua. Walau persahabatan kami disulami ribut, taufan, puting beliung sekalipun, saya tak berfikir panjang untuk menghulurkan bantuan. Saya ikhlas.

Saya kirimkan whatsapps.

Me: Dah print out slips?
TOF: belum
Me: nak kita tolong tak?
TOF: username; xxxx Xxx
          Password: xxxx

Nampak tak permainannya?

Mokcik terus download, copypasted dan edit mana yang patut. The boss came n announced he will go out for a meet in a shortwhile.

Terburu2 mokcik siapkan n later berlari to get his verification. Takut tak sempat..

Oh gosh...
Last time when TheOtherFriend relayed my message to d upper echelon, he reported, "aku segan, dia tanya kenapa aku pula yang sampaikan mesej hang".

Ok...
I have to be quick.
The least I want is drama akasia, padahal saya ikhlas kot...

"Boss, boss tau tak Ayob (bukan nama sebenar) baru dapat dividen 25K? Tu la kita printkan slip ni. Tapi kita ikhlas boss", mokcik cakap, muka ikhlas sangat...

Boss tengok muka mokcik, "ikhlas... Tapi sebut pasal duit orang tu. Ikhlas la sangat...", dia ejek...

Kalau mokcik redha menerima tohmahan, takkanlah TheOtherFriend tak boleh redha menerima kemuluttempayanan mokcik dengan ikhlas.


Hahaha...

Ramadhan 25: MBD Tapah Iftar

I meet Yunie Abdurahman on daily basis, but we hardly talk about  other than work-related thingy. Yunie tak banyak cakap, saya pulak waktu kerja sangat gigih mengEmas meja, nak sembang apa?

Luckily she could attend d MBD Iftar, panjang sikit kitaorang sembang...


I knew Josephine Selvaraj Since 2012 and Ita Makcu in 2013.
Jo was our chief.

2 years later, Sunita n I sealed our friendships when we scoured Tapah to find Evian at d backseat of a stranger's car together. Hahhaha.. a long story though.

So much things had happened. Anyway, a guide smiles and sings under all difficulties, katanya... When there is problems, we ironed up things, we dont 'iron' people up to 80% degree burnt.

Tonight is Jo first buka puasa do. Glad she could make it.
Even her family was surprised with her decision. Hahhahhaa


Tapi lps tu I overslept n almost tak jadi datang.

"At least make some effortla. U suruh I datang, now I come n u x dtg plak" dia marah ... hahahhahahha.., dont tell anyone I drove 140km/hour. Sorry MACC. Mokcik terpaksa...

Tri left earlier than us. Jo, Sunita n I sambung berbual sejam dua.
Then kitaorang bangun dan bid gud bye.
Setengah jam kemudian barulah kitaorang betul2 balik.
Kawan baik kot... banyak benda nak cerita hahhahah

In Girl Guides we believe a guide is a friend to all and a sister to every other guide, albeit their faith, race n skin colour.

Orang jemput makan, kita makan bersama. Kita tak 'makan' kawan dek...

Come n join us!

PERSONALLOG@MBD Tapah iftar

#mokcikonfrienships

Petikkk!!! popcorn lima!!!

Today d calling letter arrived. A meeting with a big shot.

Saya rasa nak tendang dinding.
Saya sangat tidak redha nama saya dipetik.

The meeting wud be 100km away. Saya benci d torturous journey.

Top of all, saya sangat tak gembira.
Dulu saya fikir Lindungan Kaabah ialah seburuk-buruk perbuatan. Now saya tambah satu lagi, power struggle.

Saya pernah tulis dalam satu entri, perbuatan acah-acah turn down d offer to lead padahal dalam hati bagai digaru is so yesterday. TMJ n KJ offered themselves to handle FAM n Youth Ministry. Both did extremely well.

Kalau ko bagus, offer je la diri n cakap terang-terang. Tak payahla nak kipas-kipas,  padamkan lilin orang, curi tangga orang sebab nak naik ke atas. Ni figuratif  ye.
Lagipun taktik ni hanya sesuai untuk yang pemalas dan tidak berkebolehan.

These bunch of people are d top in their field. Sampai sudah saya tak faham, why they prefer to stoop so low.

Now, things get bigger. Habis mokcik  pun terbabit sekali.
Saya betul-betul tak redha.

" I choose u, I know u could be trusted" said one.
"I sayang u, u r reliable", said another.

Well...
They do not know me much.
Trusted in term of what? Kalau kena bersekongkol dan berkata YA untuk fakta yang saya tahu salah, sorry, count me out.

Reliable does not mean I did not ask questions.
Reliable does not mean I will oblige all the time.

I fancy myself as a very opinionated person.
U might be surprised if sometimes I will say, " hey u guys shut up n listen to me".


Because u see...
Kalau korang tak main wayang sejak mula, takder la kita semua berjemaah mengadap the big shot.

What a s#it.






Petik!!! Popcorn!!

Trust me.
I've seen a lot. I've heard more than I should.
In the end, saya lebih percaya pada fakta.

Like someone yang selama ini selalu low-profile, tiba-tiba bukan main friendly dan actively- involved dengan semua work-related events of course it raised an eyebrow. Dulu anti-social, sekarang kemain bangga telling all n sundry about his achievements,  hehhehe...
It did not take long for others to see, he is vying for promotion.

Usaha lagi bang!!!
Kipas kuat sikit.
Padamkan lebih banyak lilin orang.
Tak lama lagi tercapailah cita-cita tu.. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Cuma jangan guna skrip, " aku tak nak semua ni. Aku terpaksa... Ye lah.. Orang dah bagi,  kita terima je la..."
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Setelah berhempas pulas mengipas, apple-polishing segala, d least you could do is enjoy ur sweet victory.

If u think orang lain tak perasan betapa hebatnya kau berusaha mencapai cita-cita menuju puncak, aiyooo think again.

At least, in my humble opinion, I would prefer to remain silent.

Popcorn!!!!!

Ramadhan 24: petik!!!

Someone texted me, "kalau dah siap tolong send". Saya baca, tapi tak balas.

I didnt ask either.  I have seen a lot of people like that, main petikkk je... Siapa yang harus in-charge pun dia x tahu..
d best, Just ignore or else, panjang pula ceritanya nanti.

Today, I had a hard time reading d slides. All d data were there. Accurate. Tapi a few should come from me, yg tu saya konpius.  why cant he ask me instead of belasah je tulis.

A different HE.

Luckily a form were distributed.  I was asked to fill it up, together with few others.
I did.
Of course there is descrepansies.
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Saya malas nak fikir.
Nak cakap pun malas.

Petikkk je la selagi mampu.
Meanwhile,  mokcik n these two HE tetap penuh kasih sayang kekdahnya.

Gasaklah..

Ramadhan 23: outing with mommy

On Friday mommy tanya if I can buy some chickens. Dia tak suruh, she asked, I bought but I asked her if she wants to do groceries on Sunday.

"Mana-manalah" mak saya jadi. Meaning she wants to go.

Terburu2 saya balik ke#18 pagi ni.

"Orang bangun lewat mak.." saya beritahu.

I told her pagar istana dikunci n was opened after More  which was 10.30 n I waited another half an hour sebab d car could not get through. Sampai rumah pukul 1.30a.m n 2 hours later baru saya terlelap.

"Pagi ni sejuk sangat, rupanya hujan mak.... tu la bangun lewat.." ye... semua benda saya cerita . Mak saya tak marah pun.

A day before going to d palace saya memang bermimpi yang pelik sangat.
At that time saya dah rasa cuak dah.
Bila balik lewat, terus saya bertambah cuak.
Tu yang bangun lewat tu hahhahah

Mak berhenti mengaji dan bersiap, kami terus ke Teluk Intan. We fetched Cu Na n later wEnt to TF.

Few things r on discounted price so I buy in bulk.
D bill is RM405.**.
Nampak macam mahal, tapi jangan lupa Adnan clan sangat ramai, so berbaloi la tu..

It always fun shopping with mum. We split n sa e time.
Whereas Cu Na picked her groceries on her own.

It was raining whEn wE wEnt out.
Mom wanted to buy some chips. We headed to her fav shop in town.
Nothing much,
Shopping in pouring rain was not easy.

We stopped at Cu Na before heading home. Mom was too tired to move.
Missed chance to see Pak Cu though.

We went straight home. Mom slept throughout d journey.
Sampai rumah saya memunggah. Mak terus solat zohor.

Letih weh...
We bid goodbye.

Saya nak cepat sebab semangat nak buat kuih raya. Hahhahahha




Ramadhan 22: sisters are forever

Since d beginning Tuanku announced her choice of place,  As dah stress. Dia baru pindah ke PPD, so she is still struggling with her new post.

"Saya stress Kak", dia cakap lagi during our LEC meeting. I feel her.
Saya faham.

I had been in her shoes too.

Dont get me wrong. Tuanku RNM had work harder. So did our KPC n d Timbalan. Kalau As tak lena tidur, mereka bertiga pun sama.
Bezanya they are seasoned player, As is a firt-timer.

Mokcik x reti nak tolong, bulan puasa kot... dahla Kuala Kangsar tu jauh...
I hate travelling bila puasa. D journey is two hours n half, gila lama.

But I still come. I did not take any kids because d event is in d afternoon. Memang takkan sempat nak balik rumah for breakfasting nanti.

The event went smoothly.
Thanks God.
Kudos to d team n sponsors.

D girls tolong kemas. A bliss.
Sudahnya tinggal KPC, Timbalan , As n two of her teammates.

Sebagai tanda sokongan, mokcik pun menyempit juga tolong apa yang patut.
It was 5.30p.m when we left d hall.
A team of men were there sebab esoknya mereka pula nak guna hall tu.

"Oh leganya..." As cakap when we strolled around d Iskandariah Palace that breezy night.
Unlike weeks before, we laughed out loud over a silly matter.


"Kak A cakap, jangan ambil hati bila Tuanku murka sebab dia pun kena juga lagi teruk", As cerita. The truth during d previous meeting Tuanku was a bit annoyed with As' district report.

"Akak pula kena  masa First AGM. Baru dilantik, dahla tak tau apa, pergi dengan kawan, badge ada satu je, sebab takut uniform tak lengkap, I gave her my badge   I pakai baju logo. Semua kakak2 tu tepuk dahi tengok...",

By this time As dah ketawa berguling, sehodoh2 pemandangan bila dalam majlis rasmi, kau sorang je yang salah pakai baju,

"That was not all. Masa bagi pelaporan, akak salah cakap n tuanku murka dan titahkan Setiausaha send show-caused letter pada my teammates".

" Dah pernah kena la ni?" As tanya, ketawa lagi.

"Ye la, at least As dah kenal kitaorang, dalam mesyuarat Lembaga Eksekutif je pun kena marah, ni dah la AGM, orang ramai, kita pun first time datang"

Hahahahhahahahaahha... seronok pula bila dithrowback.

Later that day kakak2 tu datang dan pujuk saya jangan ambil hati.

" Kak A cakap dia jumpa tuanku dan cakap akak budak baru, dia puji2 habis la" hahahhahaha kami ketawa lagi.

To be honest, saya sentiasa thankful pada Kak A. Pozitibiti betul!!!

Tuanku was Oxford graduate, mestilah tahap ketelitian dia sesuai dengan kelulusan. I respect people bukan kerana pangkat, harta dan keturunan, silap2 saya maki je semula, but she is very capable.
Yang dia tegur tu betul, jadi saya terima dengan muka malu la kan...


Knowing d sisters were there to give me guiding lights, hati mokcik tenang.
Now, seeing As predicament, guess it was my turn nak mengikut jejak langkah kakak2 tu...

Gigih mokcik bertunggu tangga kat Kuala Kangsor dari siang sampai malam katanya.,

Ramadhan 20: Oh Men!

Yesterday I went back at 5.40p.m. Kalau ikut hati pukul doblas saya nak balik rumah, but d sponsor texted, jadi haruslah saya berkorban masa dan berbincang.

Upper echelon is not happy with d budget.
Saya dah cakap banyak kali, paperwork tu saya yg buat, I can revise, d Kids punya pasal seploh kali revise pun saya redha. Asalkan mereka untung..
Tapi mokcik sangat straightforward, janganlah berkias2. I kenot digest!!!
Men!

People said, perempuan memang payah diajak berbincang. Diorang lupa kot, I worked with many Men. Bila saya jadi Ketua Derjah, I told these Men, what I want. They delivered. End of story. Till now, we r still friends.

Berbincang means, we tell what we expect clearly. Before d decision is made, we looked into all angle.

I m far from good, but we come to serve.
Profesional is d keyword.

In a way I must say, I m a bit stress out.

I contacted d sponsor, pronto, after d brief discussion.  Given em' options.

Guess what?
Today I contacted d sponsor again,
" kindly ignore d options, hari ni mereka kasi notification lain pula." tentu saja saya akhiri dengan emoticon πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Diorang tak fikir ke air muka saya?
D sponsor tu bukanlah calang2 orang.

Nak revise budget tu pun saya sangat malu, ni nak suruh lupakan options is another.
No one has courtesy to consult me sedangkan d sponsor kasi ribu-riban kot.

The old norizan will go n clarify.
The new norizan cuma baca notification dan menangis di bucu katil sajalah...

There is another.
Saya cakap dengan kawan saya nak tumpang dia pergi run sementelah pula dia nak bawa d Kids. Gigih saya registerkan, for d Kids mokcik takkan berkira.

"muat tak?", saya tanya.

Yesterday he gave 6 names. Means saya muat menyelit.
Later, he added another one.
7? No way I can Fit in.

Why cant he be honest?
Kalau tak nak kasi tumpang cakap je la...

The old norizan will go n clarify.
The new norizan cuma registered, print out confirmation slips, kirim dengan orang suruh sampaikan dan menangis di bucu katil sajalah...

I keep reminding myself, Just because d Men I see in daily basis treated me badly,  takkanlah saya nak berhenti kerja pulak. Dahla hutang keliling pinggangπŸ˜‚

Cuma yelah...
Mokcik pun manusia biasa.
Ada hari kuat macam Tiger, ada hari mokcik hati tisu.

So today at 2.03p.m I punched out n went home.
