She will be missed

When my brother passed away in January, I was hoping that I wouldn't have to go through anything similar again.
At least not in the near future.
But 5 months & a week later, my aunt had her final breath back in our village home.
I was stunned when I heard the news but I didn't cry.
Not until I saw her lifeless body.
She had been sick for a long time & as much as I'd like her to stay with us, deep down inside I believe that she's better off in another place.
Closer to God.
May her soul rest in peace.
Al Fatihah.

Just my kind of misunderstanding ;)

At my nephew, Andika's majlis cukur jambul,
a few people there thought that I was the younger sister.
Fyi, my sister and I have a 10 year old gap between us.
She's 16 years old.
That means I'm 15?
Get out of town!

Here are pics of us, u be the judge.
Maybe it's because she looks way mature beyond her age or I have found my fountain of youth, soaked myself silly in it thus reflected on my face and manner.
Or maybe because I'm just plain short.

What next?

I'm sure I was fully prepared for any questions or comments related to the dreaded topic: marriage but I definitely wasn't prepared for this.

Mum: First grandchild is a boy, then a girl, another girl and followed by two boys. Next would be a surprise cause we don't know which one ur sister is carrying. After that, who knows?

She looked at me as if waiting for me to say something. I knew exactly where the conversation was heading and there's no way I'm going there.

Me: After that would be a boy and a girl cause I'll be having twins. Would u like that?

Mum: I would like that very much.

I was actually being sarcastic but she looked pleased with the answer so I just left it at that.

As long as she's happy, I'm happy. :)

And AMIN to that cause I've always wanted twins, a boy and a girl.

my not so humble wishlist :D

(1) flora by gucci
just love the sophisticated yet subtle flowery fragrance

(2) silver mirrored aviator sunglasses
i may not fly a plane but anyone would look damn good in it

(3) black suede pump heels with animal printed lining
utterly orgasmic!

(4) black tote bag
one could never go out of style

(5) black with sequinned maillot
just because u don't swim, it doesn't mean u can't look good soaking in the sun next to the pool

(6) full body massage or facial - my tensed & tired muscle could really use some pampering

(7) a year subscription of CLEO / FEMALE / SHAPE magazine

(8) gym ball, elastic band or dumbells - so i won't have any excuse not to work out anymore

(9) hair makeover - sick & tired of how my tresses currently look, a little revamping would be appreciated

(10) return flight tickets to New York - i miss him so much! :(

It's a small world after all : the sequel

Remember the entry I once wrote about my high school crush?

Well, there's actually a sequel to that.
I attended my officemate's wedding today,



I was expecting him to be there because he is the bride's brother but I sure didn't expect to be all jittery.
Even after 14 years, he still has that effect on me.
He's a lot thinner & has that more matured look.
And he still smile as sweet as ever.
The smile that made me liked him in the first place.
I liked him so much that I asked a fellow senior to gave him a box of KFC nuggets & dodol.
Yes, for real.
Don't ask why.

So today, when I saw him again after all these years, I was suddenly brought back to high school & I automatically turned into that very shy girl again.
The shy girl who was speechless, who couldn't even smile let alone said HI.
So now, I'm beating myself up for being too caught up in nostalgia.
I'm going to be 27 this june for God's sake!
I should start making a move.

Got this from an officemate who just got back from the holidays.
Measuring at almost 30cm, it must have been the longest & biggest pencil I've ever possessed.
Just look how puny Gingy looks besides it.
