You've got Mail

Came home. And I found THIS in the mailbox.


Then I became so excited cause immediately I knew who it was from. So I quickly called Ikhwan to ask him if I could open it fisrt or does he want me to wait to open it up with him. I mean both our names are on it. But Ikhwan failed to pick up my call. I called 3 times. "Aaaah " I thought to myself. Too bad he didn't answer. Plus I am certain he wouldn't mind. So...I


Yup! Opened it. It was so pweety!! I got even more excited. Again, I called Ikhwan. Still no answer. So then, I ....


Read it to myself with a huge grin across my face. Wishing I waited for Ikhwan. That way, I could share the moment with him. Our FIRST ever ENGAGEMENT card. Duh!! We have NEVER been engaged. Well not that I know off anyway. Sayang if you are reading this, the answer better be same as mine. The first!!!


THANK YOU ANETA, RUDY & LIL KAILA 
for the wonderful, sweet and thoughtful card which flew all the way from your hearts to our hearts....It means so much to us to be receiving this card from the 3 of you. All all all the way from London. Hugs and Kisses to the 3 of you and a huge sloppy I mean serious sloppy one to Lil Kaila. Can't wait to see Kaila next year hope you guys can make it for the wedding. Plus I have confidently said to everyone I don't need to hire a make-up artist cause you will be coming. No preassure though *yikes*

Oh and YES...after half an hour, Ikhwan rang me back and I mentioned about the card and that I opened it. TOLD YOU he wouldn't mind. I love you !! Anyway, again to Aneta, Rudy & Lil Kaila, THANK YOU from Ikhwan & me! He will inbox you guys personally. xoxo

A Dedicated Post to My One & Only Man....Ikhwan Sha

It is 9.05 pm and as I was opening and checking our Joint Email Account (Ikhwan's and mine) I came across an email which caught my attention and my eye.It was an email from ******** that Ikhwan and me have been waiting for all these years.

With great excitement and enthusiasm, I opened the email.  And the image attached to it made me jump with joy shouting and screaming my lungs out in my small room. I immediately dialled Ikhwan's number. Obviously he has not seen the email. Am certain of it. Duh...it still had the unopened envelope symbol and if he did, I would be the FIRST he would call to inform.

With a high toned voice, controlling myself, I asked Ikhwan to open the email NOW. And I waited impatiently on the other end. I guided him through it asked him to look at Mr*******'s email. Open it ! And he was nervous. So was I. Only afraid he would be upset at the end result. But NO! He was as thrilled as me. Even more, if I may add! 

It came. It's happening. All Ikhwan's hard work and dedication and all the time consumed with sleepless nights all felt paid off with the email. Just an email you may think. But that is our live. His life. His dreams. His goals. 

This post is especially for you sayang. I am so proud of you I can't describe it with words no-more. I knew you would do it and could do it! You have proved them all wrong! That you are what you say you are and you have become what you said you would become. It is all happening my love. 2012 is our year. Your year, my year! Thank you Allah for blessing Ikhwan and me in many great ways. I will always be by your side. We shall not stop here my love. This is only the beginning. Many more to come for you and me. Many many many more. Amen.

To my beautiful readers from all over the world, I can't wait to share with you this special outrageous news on Ikhwan. But like I mentioned in all my previous posts, I will never be able to mention or disclose any information until it is there for you to see. 90% is done. Hopefully by early March I will be able to do a post just to honour my one and only IKHWAN SHA. Remember that name, and you saw it here FIRST*wink*

I am extremely excited and happy today. Just got off the phone with Ikhwan and it's all set. This Saturday, the both of us shall be shopping for our "hantaran" items. And THE RING !! That's the most exciting part. His ring and my ring.. *smile*

I am certain it is gonna be a long day BUT a funnn long day. Where to go? What to do ? What to buy. Actually, we know what to buy and what we need. All left is where to buy it and which shop has the cheaper same or even better product / goods. This is gonna be capital fun!!

Nick of Time

I have been running up and down doing last minute preparations for the engagement. Better yet we are adding few stuff and ideas here and there and deleting some. Which is causing me tension and when I refer it back with Ikhwan, he adds the stress cause god knows what is going on on his side of preparations.

We would both then argue just because of stupid silly pelamins, clothes colour, and hantaran etc which is NOT making me pleased. We shouldn't be arguing. But people around us are pissing us off that the end park would be on each other. But Ikhwan is so sweet to text me saying he is sorry and didn't mean to hurt me on purpose and that he loves me and wants to marry me..*melts*

How can I stay mad after receiving a text like that!  I am the luckiest girl ever to have found a wonderful man like him. I seriously wish we could skip all these preparations and step by step procedure and just get married with the tok kadi in the mosque and be done with it. Cause I seriously cannot wait to be his wife and stay in the same house with him.

Cook dinner and watch Tv together. Wake up together and get ready for work and have our goodbye kisses...*sigh* I want all that NOW..I hate this preparation part with guest list and buying things and renting stuff and bla-di-bla-di-bla Hurry up time. Please be March 2013 already!

Just My Luck

I have never had a terrible day like this in my entire life before. I was practically jinxed from the minute I woke up till just now 7pm. What happened? Well...embrace yourselves please. Here is how it all began.

I have training today which is at Bangi and my company provides free bus transportation to Bangi Centre. Okay so the day before, I checked with my co-workers where the pick up point was. And they explained to me to wait at Maybank Central Market. Central Market....a place I am NOT familiar with. So I took the Putra Lrt and reached Pasar Seni at 7am bus arrives at 7.30 am

Confidently, I crossed the overhead bridge just like what they explained to me and saw the sign Maybank at Menara Dayabumi. The key point place for today is wait in front of Maybank which has a 7-Eleven next to it. So I walked into the Dayabumi building, saw Maybank and asked the security guard how do I get outside to the main entrance of Maybank and he told me to go up certain stairs and down some hallways and I would reach the main entrance. There I was at the main entrance. Guess what!!! It was facing the highway! And there was no freaking 7-Eleven. 

I decided to call the bus driver and asked for explanations again and he was like oh no....you went to the wrong Maybank. Go back to the Lrt station and it is just below there. And he added hurry! The 7.30 am bus is there and the next bus is at 7.50am for the day. I "slowly" ran in my heels going through all the hassle walk again. And finally I saw the Maybank he was talking about. Goddamnit!!! It was just below the Lrt. Pffft

So I waited for the 7.50am bus. The bus arrived. I seriously don't know how...But I fell down from the pavement to the road flat on my palms and knees. It was so blooooody embarrassing. I fell just behind the line where all the other people from the same company as me, but from different branches were lining up. And 2 men turned around and helped me up and asked if I was okay and was telling me not to rush and not to worry that the bus won't leave me. I will get my chance to get on the bus! *face all red* but I pretended to act all pity for falling.

Reached my destination. Got up to my training center thank god those people were not in the same room as me. I went to the washroom to freshen up and then I realized my feet hurts so bad. I took off my shoes and saw that my entire skin on my big toe was peeled off and there was this huge red patch which is causing a "pedih" feeling and it was hurting me so bad I wanted to get out of my heels. But I had no choice but to suck it in till 5.30 pm

Came 5.30 pm...I rushed to the bus pick up spot in the Bangi Center. And I was so happy I got into the bus and did not miss it. Somehow, with the traffic and all I fell asleep. No no no...listen listen!! I fell asleep. I was awaken when the bus stopped. And people started getting off. Me being an idiot got off too soooo confidently and after the bus left, I came to realize, this is not my stop at all. I was at the old Railway Station. I panicked and called Ikhwan saying I wanted to cry I am lost I dunno where I am and my feet hurts like hell. I walked into the KTM Station and I saw the same man who helped me up when I fell. I asked him how do I go to the nearest Putra Lrt and he said " oh why did you get off here then? The nearest Lrt is the stop the bus picked us up which is about 300 meters walk from here" I said thank you and left.

With my heels and my feet killing me I had to walk 300 meters to the Putra. Wanna add more drama, it started to rain heavily and I didn't have an umbrella. All I had was my jacket which I used to cover my head. And I walked very very slowly due to the fact that my feet hurts and that I didn't wanna slip and fall again with the floor being slippery and all. 

In the end my dear dear people, I reached the Putra Lrt, got onto the train and went to my stop and went home! I have never been so glad to have found a Lrt Station. I was overwhelmed with joy when I saw the train. The familiar train. And I have never panicked that much in my life.

Today was seriously not my day. Bad Karma was around me and out to get me! It all began at 7 am and I only reached home safely at 7 pm. Glad to be home. Wanna hear something else? Tomorrow I have training again. This time, I am gonna be alert and I am gonna wear the flattest flats ever created in the world with an umbrella, just in case, and will NOT fall asleep in the bus on the way home. There you have it! How was your day?

Guest List

Oh thank goodness !! Guest List for my engagement is DONE ! Finally came to a decision with mommy just now. I hate this part the most. The thing is,  I want a small engagement. With close family and friends. But when you look at the whole picture, it is easier said then done.

This would happen in all families out there. I am 100 % certain of it. Who is important to invite and who not to. And those not invited will feel hurt and upset. Oh my god! Drama drama drama... Sometimes people have to remember and think. Maybe he/she wants a small function. Maybe the location and space can only fit a certain amount of people. Maybe he/she wants it intimate.

Anyways, I managed to talk mommy into it and gave her the list of people I WANT to invite and those we shall invite because they are the eldest and must be present on our joyfulness occasion. So bottom line is, we are calling ALL mommy and daddy's brothers and sisters AND the FIRST BORN of their family with their spouse only. And of course my closest cousins (whom I actually grew up with and still keep the bond with till today. like seriously close close type of close) it's only fair! I'm close to them . .  That way, no one will feel offended. Trust me, if I call every of my cousins, the guest list will turn to a wedding list.

I am so glad this worst part is settled. But frankly speaking, if I were to hear stories coming back to me saying this so and so was not invited and was offended, to hell with them. I can't invite and please every tom, dick and harry. Wait for the WEDDING. THEY WILL ALL be invited. Sometimes in life, I guess we ought to know when certain things need to be done and not. *phew*

Measure ME !!

Went to the tailor just now with mommy. Hani ? Bailed on me...Dianah ? Bailed on me...Useless sisters I have. Idiots! 

Anyway, who is my tailor ? Well, that's a secret I will never tell. *wink* She measured me up, gave ideas, and bla bla bla. And guess what...we took the cloth back because we forgot to buy lining for her to sew  with the cloth I have for my outfit for the ENGAGEMENT.

So, we gotta hunt for lining a.s.a.p and give it to her by this week so it can be ready by the 1st of March. Just in time for me to try and do last minute alters (if I gain weight and my boobs expand). Nothing much actually, cause my mom and her were deciding on how long the sleeves will be, how long the sarong will be and how low the neckline will be. All I managed to say was, I want the sarong to start below waist. The old skool Baju Kurungs, let it be modern or not, the sarongs would start high waisted and it's so uncomfortable. So lucky me, I managed to jump in at the right moment.

I'm Back

It has been a very very long week for me. Been extremely busy with work, with chores, with stuff! However, I managed to get some lil things done in between. Want a full recap? Here goes.

Am bumming in my older sisters house for the whole of last week including next. Just for the fun of it! I take the train to work from Kelana Jaya back and forth. We only reach home at 8 to 9 pm coz we would eat dinner after that then head home.

Watch a couple hours of TV then off to bed! That has been my entire week for the entire of last week. Although it may sound boring...It was not  ookay. We go Chatime , we go to Tropicana , Papa Rich , and Giza. However, last weekend, my sisters and I went to curve for lunch with her friends at Paddington Pancake and *droools* it was delicious. Must bring Ikhwan there. The pancakes were so soft and fluffy and to-die-for....

After lunch,we did some walking about. Had to hunt birthday present for a teenager. Hate doing that cause teenagers to me a VERY fickle minded and everything you think they would like would be like "childish" for them. Don't you agree ? Haish....some kids wanna grow up way faster then they are supposed to. But I ended up buying something (which I hope she likes) that my younger sister said "yeah!! nice" since she is a teenager herself.
