Magnitude 7.9


I was faithfully writing a proposal in the office when I had this 'shaky' feelin..

After few minutes, Nurul urgent everyone to leave the building (saw some people running around at the lobby).

Apparently it has been confirmed that there was an earthquake in Indonesia (thanks to Tuan Khairul for his suppa-de-duppa update, phuh!).
When I was updating this, there were 5 people at my department who hesitance to leave the office (I'm included). Some of other major buildings in the golden triangle has requested their tenant to evacuate the building.
Ada gegaran susulan...JOM BALIK!(Unta? Berbaloi to die for?)

Raya crave

  • Raya : Had a good one except that MAJOR damaged done to other half''s wallet. Most expensive raya ever. Terima kasih Tuhan swt (dan suami) atas rezeki kali ini. Shopping? I will repent.. for real (Ya Allah, please give me strength)

  • Still on raya: Glad that abang Lan came back for raya. Mak was happy until 5th day of raya when he depart back. We promise mak that we will be flying off to visit abg Lan at middle east next year IF Allah's (and financial) permits..inshaAllah.

  • Passing: Al-fatihah to Atuk Rusdi who passed away two days before Eid. Al-fatihah

  • Life: happy with hubby's new success story, alhamdulillah. Like ustaz said, "kejayaan pun adalah satu dugaan, Allah nak duga how far we'll get carried away with it"... Subhanallah

  • Work: Busy with system migration .. (this was written kat opis la pagi2 sabtu nih, nak nangis pun ada..)

  • Hutang? InshaAllah bayar hutang puasa soonest possible, partly motivated by fidyah sponsored by hubby.

  • Bola? Macam teringin nak join hubby support Man City

  • Tennis? C'mon la abang Nadal, janji buat come back.. bagi sayur itu Del Potro!

  • Breakaway!! Please refer to Item (2) above.

  • Crave : I wonder why I have this crave over the thing that I used to dislike; stilletos, jimmy choo to be specific? (mabuk ape haku nih? pakai pump shoes pun da tergolek), ramen noodles (da dapat semalam! cheap & tasty), LV (dulu cakap the monogram is one ugly design), DSLR (funding still in progress), BB (yeay!), kuih tart (ingat tak lawak '8' kuih ini?), lagu2 Indon (I like! Influenced by Alin & Raja Azura)


    Sharing is caring.. on the last ramadhan's tazkirah, ustaz mentioned that it is useless for those who attend but did not share the knowledge with others. Dia cakap; "sampaikan! sampaikan! kan Nabi SAW cakap sampaikan walaupun satu ayat! tak guna datang kalau tak share ilmu, baik jangan datang!" ... I wanted to share BUT (1). What if information that I passed on is inaccurate? (2). Riyak? Nanti kata berlagak pulak, initial posting pun sedara mara bule misinterpret, nanti ni lagi la ~remember PakCik Gani told mak that her niece(u know who you are) crying teresak-esak sebab cousin cun ni sembur dia (?)eee takut! bukan patut I ker yg nangis psl story itu? Cian hubby I..

    Anyway, I will share the knowledge yg mana ingat, selit sikit2 dlm each posting untuk kebaikan bersama. InsyaAllah
    1. Sometimes


      Sometimes Allah breaks our spirit to save our soul.
      HE breaks our heart to makes us whole.
      HE sends us pain so we can be stronger.
      HE sends us failure to makes us humbler.
      HE sends us illness so we can take care of ourselves.
      Sometimes, ALLAH takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything..
      Allahuakbar!


      p/s: Beautifully composed..received this from a friend for raya greetings.Selamat Hari raya. Maaf dari saya.

      Raya migration


      How to fully enjoy raya when I have to work on Saturday, 26th Sept for system migration?

      Christmas? they declare embargo period, even big meetings are cancelled but raya time not important. Reason : There are non-malays that can support the migration during the festive season. Haku?
      How to implement 1Malaysia nih?

      An apology to my team (and others that had to come back that day). I will be on site as well (tak buleh la haku nak pi open house hari itu). Looks like kita di jajah inggeris lagi.

      Have been very loyal for not taking any Raya leave for the first 10 years (until took a day off last year). And my name will be on top for standby during the early years since I'm local.

      adakah berbaloi?
      Macam Nami kata "sudah makan pengat" (sendiri mau ingat)..
      at least I have a job.. I am grateful for what I have, alhamdulillah.

      Yang paling dekat..

      One morning after sahur Mak was crying thinking of her belated sister.. (al-fatihah untuk bibik Hairiya) and coincidentally that nite I hardly close my eyes thinking of the tazkirah day before. The tazkirah was about 'mati' & ustaz was saying antara benda yang paling hampir dalam bulan Ramadhan adalah 'mati'.

      Rasa sayu bila teringat balik the things that used to haunt me..;
      ..who will take care of my children when I'm gone?
      ..sapa nak bayar hutang2 ku, ganti puasa ku?
      ..sapa nak tanggung org2 di bawah tangunggan ku?
      ..will I be able to repent before the time come?
      ..adake amalan untuk bekalan?

      To other other half ;terima kasih kerana maafkan dosa2 dan membayarkan fidyah ibu.

      Today another passing came to my ears, being a budak cengeng,I just can't help this teary eyes upon hearing that Sara's arwah sis-in law just gave birth before her passing. Semoga Allah menempatkan mereka yang telah pergi dikalangan orang2 mukmin yang beriman dan semoga mereka yang masih hidup diberikan panduan dan pedoman. Amin

      Ramadan Day 20

      Ramadhan is coming to an end. , dimanakah saya?:-

      1. I have religiously wear baju kurung to office thruout Ramadhan.. rasanye decent enuff to attend the daily tazkirah..(layak kah saya masuk Wanita Melayu aka sopan dan ayu contest itu?)


      2. To date I only missed 2 tazkirah (alhamdulillah). Pray that I will be able to implement the things that I have learnt from the ceramah. There are a lot of knowledge that I have gained and I also accidentally meng "amin" kan to the ustaz when he was praying (doa) for the male audience & female's other half to expand their network (kawin 2?)


      3. No major damaged to wallet (yet). I was at Low Yatt yesterday looking for Nazurah's DVD gadget & notebook cooler for Haziq until I stumbled upon this... (Cis! ada ke patut canon buat promo for EP1 besar2-an kat foyer tuh!) I believe 'setan memang kena rantai bulan puasa' else the credit card itu memang tercedera coz I realize I did perform more than one tawaf round the booth.


        (Hey EP1! aper pandang2?)


      4. No LV (yet)! manage to refrain the temptation. But I bought mak a Liz Claiborne handbag for her birthday (to match the purse that I her gave last month). Damage: Minimal. (Below pics: membuat lawak depan kedai LV-abg Joned hanya menggelakkan bila dapat mms ni)




      5. Buka puasa buffet.. turn down vendors' invitation.. ramadhan is family time & thanks to hubby for paying the iftar at Dewan Perdana Felda for parents & PIL (equivalant my budget to bibik one month salary). BTW I managed to organize 2 buka puasa at my place-love family gathering!


      6. Puasa- as usual, lembik as ever. Haziq was far better than mine, he hasn't missed a single day & has been performing his solat faithfully. Praise to the almighty and credit to the ustaz yang ajar ngaji for his advise to my son. Terima kasih to hubby for the daily puasa insentive to both of us.


      7. Abg Lan has left to middle east, alhamdulillah mak is beginning to accept the fact & we keep her occupied so that she doesn't think much. Thanks to notty nazurah for keeping her nenek 'busy' and kudos to the technology which enable mak to skype-ing with my brother.


      8. Alhamdulillah.. another achievement for hubby.. dapat jugak rasa tempiasnye *wink*wink*. (Congratulations dear, you lar husband paling charming dalam dunia..wohooo!!!)

      9. Finally, mendoakan semoga Ramadhan kali ini lebih menjadi baik dari tahun lepas & semoga dapat dipertemukan pada Ramadhan akan datang. Also prayer for all to accept my apology & ukhuwah serta hubungan persaudaraan yang lebih baik. Amin.

      OOhhh..



      1. Want to recap some sweet moments few weeks before Ramadhan, I bump into my ex-UUM mate.. one of the gathering is an accidental meeting with the Mia's. Yup! I was so terkejut beruk excited to see them (tapi kumpulan Mia ni cool ajer, tak nampak teruja pun). Imagine how big Pavi is and of all places we bump into each other is at Tepanyaki.

      2. Speaking of coincident, it was the moment that both Harrie & I were talking about Mr. Mia when he suddenly appear before us (Iffil/Sara : mail me if you wanna know what it is all about..) Had lunch Kak Lyn Sukma (ye, your 2nd LV memang cantik*jeles*) & later joined Niena & Liza.

      3. Anyway, love meeting you guys, though it wasn't a plan one (it was supposed to be their BFF meeting). And I swear it was the first time that I had to ponteng skip work in my 12th year career. Big credit to my team who never failed to cover amazed their 'kepala'.

      4. Had another ex-UUM gathering at KLCC. I must admit that I finally agreed with a friend who used to quote this 20 years ago; "..people changed Huslina!". I realized that I was a bit quiet that day, but Alin was even more silent than I do. Kesian kita, we were supposed to go for our melalak singing session.


      5. It's not that I don't love reunion; it's just that some things have changed. By the way I met another ex UUM in Sunway (I swear that I do remember their faces but I couldn't recall their names). Surprisingly they recognize me because I don't change (ehem!) except for the tudung.

      6. Speaking of tudung, there were one or two incident in both reunions touching the topic. (It's OK people...a good reminder for myself too) but my message to them; merokok merbahayakan kesihatan..I care for you all, babe!!.

      7. A cousin finally got engaged, alhamdulillah. And to date I was the 'cheapest' dowry/hantaran amongst the female cousins he he.. (Nonoi; jangan gelak!).

      8. All in all.. there are people that you can talk or do about anything in the world, this includes merapu-ing, bun hunting (I like!) , rapping, joget shuffle dan sebagainya..but there are people that you have to be mindful with. (Harrie; don't worry, you'll get used to it)

      9. Tapi kawan2 saya memang cun, maintain!!

      Note to myself: kembalilah ke pangkal jalan.

      wordy wordy



      Have you ever surprised how sharp tongued can some people be? For those who knows me, ‘cursing’(or cakap melayu maki!) is one big pantang & truly a one trait that is a NO, NO compromise!. It is truly an ear sore upon hearing some people cursing others, be it the makcik nasi lemak raising her voice to her foreign assistance or some drivers raising their middle finger to the law breaker motorcyclist.

      I believe there are other alternative than having to said ba-alif-ba-ya or the big ‘F’ word . My favourite would be ba-wau-dal-wau-ha (yup, I spell them instead of saying “bodoh” out loud). "Bangang" is also in my vocabulary but me & hubby favourite terms would be K-H-E (my in law gonna kill me if they know the meaning, he he..)

      I pray that I don’t have to use/say any of the dirty words throughout my life. Well, I admit that I do use them for the Israelis Jew who continuously hurt the Palestinian people (they burnt the Palestinan dates farm ‘ladang kurma’ during this ramadhan, screw them!) Alhamdulillah, hubby share the same and I have never once hear any of those words from him.. (hopefully belakang pun tak ada lar)but he likes to say ‘bangang’ during his ‘handy-many’ or ‘bob the builder’ whenever the DIY project facing hiccups… (ha ha.. blame the manufacturer dear,.)

      I am writing this because I read a friends’ fb status which mention, that these people (sharp tongued) bearing invasion of poor character….
      BUT be mindful, cursing not necessarily put harm to others, there are also non harsh words which can emotionally cause stress to others i.e “ibu hitam!” (thank you sayang). Ini pun boleh mengugat emosi sekiranya seseorang itu wake up in the wrong side of the bed.

      I don’t see how cursing can satisfy one.
      Try this, so far it works…
      When a motorist speeded and you almost hit them;
      Instead of saying “woi, nak mampus ka??” say this instead;
      "Ya Allah, dia bawak laju sure dia tak tahan nak pergi toilet"

      When you heard rumors about you,
      Instead of publishing them in your blog (he he..) try this
      "Ooh, this people really care for me"

      When the boss raises his voice to you in front of the whole department,
      Instead of arguing back, tell yourself this
      Dia ni period kot” or if it still doesn’t work, go to the toilet and be a weepy baby
      Err.. this works for me everytime (proof: good bonus, good increment!)

      But my dear adik Nurul quite disagree with my above statement, she said "Kak Nana, instead of saying anything, you just pray to Allah swt for them to change, its for their own good anyway" (InsyaAllah dik!-I learn a lot from the juniors).

      You see, I have a great team members in the office. Words such as gemuk, panjang, botak, pekak, nyanyuk, pendek, kecik has become a daily vocab… Can you guess which one is being used to reflect the team leader? (well, they started it, I just follow them)

      Note: Yang baik datangnya dari ALLAH, yang buruk, salah dalam blog ini sesungguhnya atas kelemahan saya sendiri. Harap maafkan kesalahan saya.I didn’t say I am right or I never said that others are wrong. I make mistakes too, yup… lots of them.

      Mana dia..


      Mana anak ibu
      Yang sulung putih kulitnya itu
      Comel pipinya kulitnya gebu
      Sampai orang sangkakan ibu dulu pembantu

      Mana anak ibu
      Satu perempuan yang petahnya mulutnya
      Tak tahu duduk diam tingkah laku
      Jadi tunggang langgang rumah jadinya

      Mana anak ibu
      Si kecil bam bam pipinya itu
      Harinya penuh senyum selalu
      Manjanya dia terlebih-lebih

      Wahai anak-anak ibu
      Janganlah nakal janganlah sedih
      Ibu doakan bersama kasih
      Semoga menjadi anak yang soleh
      Solat jangan dilupa bila waktunya
      Agama jadikan pedoman
      Ilmu jadikan panduan
      InsyaAllah hidupmu dirahmati Tuhan

      ~alhamdulillah~
