Assalamu'alaikum. It's a material world and who is not material anyways? But come to think of it, we deserve to be a lil' bit selfish sometimes. I mean, it's more about giving ourselves a treat for all those hard works and sacrifices we've been giving others. Others but ourselves. We tend to forget to put our interests before that of others, of which people tend to always take for granted. That's what happens to most women nowadays, especially the independant ones.
I am one of them. But now I want to change. I have changed. A lot. I have learned to give myself maintenance constantly and deservingly so. I owe myself that much. For all those odd hours of striving and taking care of so many people around me all my life. For all those pains and sufferings heart-aches ups and downs bitter-sweet blood and sweat. I have arrived to a destination called present. I wanna be present at this present tense and present myself with loads of self gratitudes by giving myself loads of presents. Are you present? Stop being absent.
Assalamu'alaikum. It's almost the end of Monday, rejoice to all of you who dislike Monday (if not loathe it). Next time how about focusing on the funday Sunday late at night and welcoming Monday with things you love the best the moment you wake up for Fajr prayer?
Like, I focused on the good times I had with my sister killing time over our cuppa coffees.
And the nice photos she took of me.
Then came Monday morning, summoned my thoughts with my wishlists (read: new handbags).
Assalamu'alaikum. It's been such a round-the-clock week, really. Now it's time to chill and how about posting an entry, shall we? (A quick post, that is!) How's your weekend so far, lovelies? Mine is gonna be laid back, I guess for mom has gone back to check our Terengganu's house with bibik. Last weekend though, was dedicated solely for me familia and we had a wedding to attend in Kota Damansara (hubby's cousin). Let's just walk the pictures, shall we?
Here's mom donning her most favorite outfits and handbag:
My father-in-law came from Kuantan and was taken to KLCC for some excitement, extra-added value. ^^ He enjoyed the fountain's show and never seemed to stop talking about it. That was the night before the wedding, by the way.
Bibik was a part of the bunch as well, wearing her pink hijab.
Nice pelamin, don't you think? Even junior appreciated it.
And the weekend was summed up with watching Akademi Fantasia's finale at home, even though I only made a point of watching Firman in the first place. He won, of course, deservingly so. The fact that sifu M. Nasir had composed a song for him was an evidence, a leak already ~ plain to see, while the rest was just accessories thereto.
Anyhow, have a great weekend to you all.. Assalamu'alaikum.
Assalamu'alaikum. It's Friday already, could hardly believe it! How time flies, seems like we just began the week yesterday and here we are wishing each other Juma'ah Barakah. These days of late I have been juggling with the clock, literally and technically speaking. One of the obvious facts known mostly to those around me, especially when I tend to show up with my hoodies and no lipsticks on. Let's do a quick sum up of the week now, shall we? Oh, by the way, I'm free now after Asar prayer and about to call it the day. Here's me earlier today before lunch:
And I guess I'd better do some flashbacks, dear friends. Ok, so it started with pink guava hoodie on Monday, which evidently wasn't a fun day looking at the picture, right? Near gloomy, I'd say. LOL.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday was quite okay and I appeared with lipsticks on, mostly because I had to attend appointments so who wanna see a gloomy counsel, right? However, I don't have any picture taken on Thursday for I was stuck in the courtroom right until 12pm and by the time I reached the office I had to come up with a crazy deadline of an urgent matter. Gila ko nak selfie bagai?
Tuesday: Mint green hoodie and Wednesday: Light Yellow one.
And this one was a cute cotton pencil case I stumbled upon after work at Mr. D.I.Y when I was looking for a few things for my D.I.Y projects. It was ironic, really for I was like exchanging comments in a friend's instagram about how much we missed London earlier on at the office. So I snapped this picture and posted it to my IG, which was obviously appreciated by those who mattered. Yeah, I really do miss a few familiar places but that's what life is all about: sentimental values.
Anyhow, that's a wrap of my week in a nutshell, minus the seriousness of my works, of course. Have a jolly good weekend ahead and take care! Assalamu'alaikum.
Assalamu'alaikum. Suka minum teh? Ok, rephrased. Suka try macam-macam jenis teh dan tak kisah keluarkan extra budget? Nak tukar selera dan check in luxurious place? Maka molek benarlah cuba try test TWG Tea kat Pavilion KL, Bukit Bintang sana. Memang automatik jadik prim and proper gitieww! Oh, nak bawak bonda carik nahas la tapi, mana boleh dia tempat-tempat macam tu, membazir katanya. Belum tengok menu, belum tengok harga.. Dia dah akan mogok, piket, tarik muncung segala, ada bran? Tapi kalu slow talk dan bgtau sebab-musababnya nak raikan cinta dan kasih mesra terhadap seorang ibu, tanda terima kasih yang tak terhingga atas segala jasa dan pengorbanannya selama membesarkan kami, maka dia akan C.A.I.R akhirnya. (Nampak? Dah siap plan dialog untuk bawak bonda next trip!)
1st impression aku: Nice deco and concept. Mesti mahal tak ingat punya!
Bila belek-belek menu, takde la mengerikan tahap pitam koma segala. Untuk minum petang, masih terlajak laris (read: Mahal) sebenarnya. Tapi untuk special occasion with special persons, duit boleh dicarik sayang... Kebahagiaan itu priceless! (Ayat kena power, kennn?) Tapi seriously, bajet dalam RM50 sorang makan ~ kurang daripada tu pon, tengok apa yang kita pilih jugak, aku bagi rough figure je. Bajet banyak tu dah penuh meja dapat makanan, tau.
Dah pegi tempat macam tu, maka selamat mencuci mata ler tengok sudu garpu pinggan mangkuk piring teko segala kenn? Tengok gambar sket: Crystal clear pot rasa nak songlap bawak balik rumah masuk almari display. Siapa gatal tangan gores dan menang, memang carik maut gitiewww...! Dan untuk makluman, teko air teh tu siap bleh jadik cermin hokeh? Sungguh menawan kalbu!
Awesome burger set. Ha, itulah komen Junior bila ditanya sedap ke tak. Beef burger set ni yang paling mahal petang tu kekdahnya, amboi anak aku kan main ya? RM49 sepinggan, nampak macam kecik je saiz burger tu tapi jangan bimbang, budak kecik siap kena mintak budak besar (daddy dia ler) perabis lagi separuh. Kecuali anak korang jenis kuat makan la, of kos. Tu dah lain cerita..
Deceivingly small bites. Itu komen aku pulak lepas tengok Junior tersandar kekenyangan dan sanggup habiskan separuh je burger tu. Cekedingnya lahai ini budak!
Clear Table: An Aftermath. Jenuh nak perabiskan sebenarnya makanan sebab portion sepinggan tu banyak, bleh share and care with loved ones. Rosak la diet kalau selalu minum petang macam ni, weh! Malam tu aku tak makan dah, rasa berdosa sangat nak makan lagi. Hehehhe. Bangun pagi besoknya gila lapo! Padan muka kennn?
Tea and those things related thereto are up for sale. Aku tengok je la, gila nak beli? Satu balang nak letak serbuk teh pon harga RM300++ maka terima kasih je ler..
Dah kenyang. Solat Maghrib. Balik ler apa lagi.. Hehehhe.
Nah, belanja sekeping gambo. Terima kasih tau singgah. Jemput ler belanja aku kat TWG, apa kata survey? Hahahha. Sayang korang! Bye..
Assalamu'alaikum. Setinggi-tinggi tahniah kepada pasukan bola Negeri Pahang Darul Makmur dan kesemua penyokongnya. Bangga la semua orang Pahang, kan? Habis la Mat Yo kena jadi laughing stock dua tiga hari mulai dari saat dan detik dia gagal sempurnakan tendangan penalti tadi! Bagus jugak, kalau tak aku dah bosan semua asyik masuk gol je tendang tadi. Terima kasih la bebanyak, Mat Yo.. Jasamu kukenang. Terhibur sungguh!
Tahniah jugak kepada kedua-dua pasukan yang dah bertungkus lumus (termasuk Mat Yo, jangan lupa!) memastikan Final Piala Malaysia 2014 berjaya dihabiskan dengan bergaya. Dan yang paling legend, kesemua penyokong yang datang memeriahkan majlis, termasuk la kaum kerabat koi dari Temerloh sana dan adik ipo koi yang belum lagi sampai ke rumah dari Bukit Jalil. Korang memang superb! Dah selamat pegi Stadium tu bebaik la di jalan raya.. Selamat pulang ke destinasi masing-masing!
