It's been a while since I've updated...been soooo busy with work nowadays...a lot has been happening this past week...good things and bad things.

I have officially called this month 'the somber month', due to the passings of family members of my friends,my student, and the passing of my uncle last week...My heart and prayers goes out to all of them,may they be strong to overcome such trial.

On a totally different note, I went back home to enjoy a 3-day stress-free break, as I was too tensed with work lately..It felt so gooooood to be back!!

And the moment I entered the door, my dad greeted me with a parcel from Singapore! my lip gloss has arrived!!! I won a bid on a Stila lip gloss, and the best part was that it only costs me RM10!!including postage!! what a steal!!

*my first ever parcel from Singapore!!*

* It came perfectly wrapped with a Stila sticker!*

* ta-Dah!!!*

The next day,which was Saturday, I got another parcel, this time from the States, which could only mean a thing...My DVD is finally here!!!!

I have been dying to buy Cool Runnings for a long time, and now I finally got the chance to buy em' out of my own pocket!

* If you can squint your eyes,the square 'chop' was from the Customs*
(the reason why it came late)

*drum roll*

And 5 minutes ago, my dad informed me that Huda's imported REDBALLOON cds have arrived straight up from Hong Kong!!

MeLakA's Visit


I spent my weekend in Melaka,visiting my aunt and having the chance to go back to the wonder that is Melaka. I haven't been there in like 3 years, and recently I was sooo stressed out, I could really use a break!!!

I arrived at my aunt's house Friday night (really late night!!) along with my uncle and aunt whm I'm living with in Batu Pahat...the moment we arrived, I went straight to bed cos I was soooo sleepy!! the next day,we were served with a buffet of breakfast!

* (l-r) apam,kuih keria,kuih koci (ate em' all)*

* nasi lemak...(brrp)*

*deep fried sukun!!!haven't had this in a loong time!!*

Afterwards, I followed my aunt to Tesco Melaka to buy some groceries,here are some interesting things I found there:

* a SHAKEY'S??? such a rarity to find one anywhere!!*

* For those who wanna feel like a superman
(or Faizal Tahir for that matter!!)*

* A guy doing a smart blender demo*

*what a variety and colors!!!!*

*hmm...Kluang in Melaka???*

I wanna take more piccies but my handphone battery went kaput not long after this pic was taken!!!

Overall, I had a great time, albeit being a little tired..shoot, I even forgot that Monday's still going to pay me a visit!!!!!

2nd post today..

Last two weeks,just before I had to go back to work,my parents decided to visit our relatives (in conjuction with the aidilfitri celebration of course) in Parit Karjo, one of the many 'parits' that are available in Batu Pahat..We were there to visit my mom's aunt and uncles who live right next to one another..While there, I noticed this old abandoned house right in front of my great uncle's house, but didn't care much, until afterwards when my mom told me that,that house was the house that my grandma grew up in,and it has been there since the 1920s..It amazed me how it can still be standing there, having survived the war and,the termites...Therefore I took these pictures for keepsake, in case they decided to pull down the house later on,which I highly doubt though since it is now a chicken coop..too bad nobody have the time to maintain it...*sigh

the house is surrounded by several palm trees

notice the rooster??

First off...

I actually lost my old blog account, so I decided, what the hey, just do another one!

Yesterday after work, I decided to stop by Batu Pahat Mall, the latest attraction in Batu Pahat, just in order to do some retail therapy, cos my goodness, I can definately use it!!! I have been so busy and stressed out with work, just walking around the mall is already considered a therapy for me!!!! I even treated myself to a pair of shoes! on sale!!!

It was only then did I realized that we women soooo cannot live without shopping!!
