If it's meant to be, it's meant to be

I just got home from 2 weddings.
Actually I went to the same wedding but at 2 different venues.
Why is this possible u may ask.
It's because the groom was my former classmate in secondary school & the bride was 2 years my junior, also from the same school.
Come to think of it, both were dating different people back in school & after school ended.
Call it fate, destiny or 'jodoh', who would have thought now the two of them are on their journey to matrimonial bliss.

Dear Hafiz & Ana,
May Allah bless this marriage & hope ur lives be filled with love, respect & tiny feet running around.

Christmas my way

First and foremost, I'd like to wish everyone who's celebrating, Merry Christmas!
May this be a season of joy & happiness.
Fyi, I wished Henry Golding on my Twitter & he replied!
Might be a small matter for some people but it sure is a big deal to me.
*continues hyperventilating*

Yesterday, I spent Christmas Eve singing my heart out at a karaoke joint with Bobet, Zilah, Bobo & later joined by their friend, Hamzah.
The two of them surprised Bobet & myself with a huge cake to celebrate our belated birthdays & me for getting a new job.
Thanks u two, I still have leftovers (lots!) in the fridge.
Just a slice would do but anyway, I really appreciate the gesture.
We were there for almost 4 hours which I spent an hour sleeping because I was so sleepy while the rest of them belting out tunes from their favourite singers.
Yes, I have been born with the ability to fall sleep anywhere in any way I want when I'm really, really sleepy.
I had fun but it would be better if the songs were up to date.
Most of the songs we wanted weren't on the selection so we just had to settle for what we have.
Definitely not worth the rm28 we paid.
Next time, we're switching venues.
For sure.

Today, I went Christmas visiting with Juz & Ap to our former schoolmates' houses.
Later in the evening we watched my favourite man of comedy, Jack Black in Gulliver's Travels.
A classic tale with a modern & hilarious twist.
A must see!
And the forgetful me managed to misplace something I bought at the shopping mall somewhere in the shopping mall.
Searched at both potential places where I could have left the stuff but no sight of it.
I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Now I'm lying in bed, thinking about what to wear to a friend's wedding tomorrow.
Most of my 'kenduri' clothes which are mostly 'kurung moden' are getting tighter due to my growing love for food.
So much for weighing 50kg by the end of the year.

Back to reality

I'm no longer at Damai Puri Resorts & Spa but instead at the comfort of my own home since yesterday.
To be frank, I needed a little adjusting to sleeping on my own bed last night after spending 3 nights on a hotel bed.
Thanks again Kak Zue for having Fieza & myself there.
You're welcome to visit anytime.

On a different note, I have more good news to share.
I'll be posted here in Kuching for my new job!
Now I can stop worrying about leaving my parents & having to adjust to an unfamiliar place. And it's just 10 minutes from my house!
Double yay!
Can't wait to start work on the 3rd!

Destination: The Beach

Lying on a bed, covered in a comfy duvet.
Chillaxing under a cabana sipping margharitas (as if).
Waking up with the sound of the waves, the sea view right from the balcony.
This is the kind of life I can get used to immediately.
*breathing in deeply*
Even just for a couple of days.

I'm at Damai Puri Resort & Spa (formerly known as Damai Lagoon) with Fieza & a blogger friend, Kak Zue.
She's here for a short trip & the two of us became her unofficial tour guide.
It's been 3 years since I last checked in a hotel.
Those days, my buddies & I, almost 10 of us would check in for a weekend.
No special occasion, just a little bonding time with each other.
We got ourselves 2 rooms, one for the boys & another for us girls but usually the boys will come by our room mainly becos most of the food & drinks were with us & becos we're so much fun to be with.
Now, most of them are married & a few are based in the Peninsular so we didn't get to do most of the things we used to when we were younger.

But as I get older, instead of friends, I always imagine checking in with my husband.
I've always dreamt of an island getaway or any beach destinations for my honeymoon like Hawaii, Cabo San Lucas, Krabi, St Tropez & the list goes on.
Nude beaches would be considered if husband can control himself.
*throws a suspicious look at any guy passing by*
A little far fetched considering I'm still single at the moment but it won't hurt to dream right?
So at the meantime, let me just sit back, relax & enjoy the present.
The future can wait.

Night of musical enlightenment

Being cooped up in the house for almost 48 hours straight is totally not good for me.
I can feel I'm slowly (pun intended) morphing into a sloth, basically doing nothing all day.
(I resigned on Thursday so I'm a stay-at-home-bitch at the moment)
Any chance of going out (with a purpose rather than eating) is what I'm waiting for so when Bobet asked whether I'd like to join her & her colleagues watch an orchestra performed by Simfoni Orkestra Negeri Sarawak (SONS), I immediately said YES.
No pause, no hesitation.
It's like being in a relationship for the longest time & your boyfriend finally went down on one knee & proposed.
Ok, that was a bad analogy but u get what I mean.
I'm finally out of the house!
That was a little drama queen moment there but I'm so glad I tagged along.
The performance was absolutely freakingly AWESOME!
One piece with a violin solo almost brought me to tears.
That's how absorbed I was with the music.
And an hour and a half definitely wasn't enough for me, for all of us present.
Really looking forward for more musical and artistic experience similar to this.
Better still, maybe a musical on Broadway be it Cats, Hairspray, Chicago, Les Miserables or Cirque Du Soleil in Vegas.

For someone more precious than any diamond or pearl

"Your love is like a river, peaceful and deep.
Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep.
When I look into your eyes, I know that it's true.
God must have spent a little more time on you."

With that said, I'd like to wish the leading lady in my life,
My beloved mother,
Puan Saudah binti Dolah,
Happy 55th birthday!
Thank you for bringing me into this world & for loving me unconditionally.
I love you, Mak!
*wipes tears*

ps: it's also Brad Pitt's birthday today! :)

Thank you Allah

This might be old news *shushing those who already knew* but it's still good news & good news shall be shared I must say.
So I'd like to announce that. . .
I got myself a new job!
After numerous exams & a few interviews later, I finally managed to secure myself a permanent spot that fit my qualifications in the government sector.
I'm really looking forward, at the same time anxious for the prospect of a new job, new surroundings & new faces.
Hopefully everything will turn out alright.
And please pray for me to be posted somewhere near or better still, here in Kuching.
I'm gonna need all the prayers I can get.

I am now a Sushi King member!
For just rm20, I received a member starter pack that consisted of a 2011 calendar, a soup/rice bowl, a rm20 voucher & a membership card.
Now I can enjoy my favourites: salmon mayo, tuna mayo, chuka kurage, golden balls, unagi temaki with 10% discount!
Not just that, remember the rm2 bonanza that happened a few months ago?
I wrote about it on my FB wall about people queuing as long as a hundred feet outside of Sushi King for it's rm2 bonanza.
Just imagine, everything on the conveyor belt is only for rm2 each & u can bring 4 of ur sushi loving friends / family members along!
For 3 days, there's no such thing as pink, red & purple plates.
Everything is beige!
Too bad I wasn't a member then, now that I am, really looking forward for it next year.
With that said, who's up for japanese food?
