sudah habis kerja hari ini

Untuk julung-julung kalinya, saya telah menyelesaikan semua kerja-kerja yang saya telah rancang untuk selesaikan hari ini.

Maka, saya fikir, adalah baik, jika saya menghabiskan masa kerja yang tinggal sedikit lagi ini, untuk meng-update blog saya.

Namun takde lah cerita apa yang menarik sangat, yang ingin saya sampaikan sekarang.  Kalau ada pun, agak terlalu panjang untuk ditaipkan semua - nanti takut TER-overtime pulak.

Malam ini saya akan pergi makan malam dengan rakan-rakan sekerja, kerana salah satu dari mereka akan membelanja kami makan!  Ini adalah kerana, dia baru mendapat ijazah MBIT.  Saya akan cuba (try / hawil) petik gambar yang baik-baik, untuk diposkan ke blog saya nanti.

Sementara itu, saya sangat berharap, yang anda semua akan 'have a sweet night' (susah nak translate ke Melayu).

Ha.. waktu kerja pun baru tamat.

Sekian wassalam.

p.s. hadi, hanaa, eema - pastikan kerja rumah dah selesai, by the time I get back.  Love you!

yesterday Hadi was doing his math, when suddenly he cried, " Oaaarggch".

I asked "why? what happened?"

"It's the big words and numbers,'s hurting my brains."


He may be exaggerating.. but I think the brains do get hurt from overworking.. that's how u get migraine sometimes right?

At the office this afternoon, there were too many stuff to think about, decisions to make, things to do, people to talk/discuss/chat to.. I was processing quite a few things at the same time, inside this tiny-not-so-tiny-but-big-also-not-so-big-brain of mine.

At one point, a colleague asked a simple question like "Did you confirm this yesterday?" I almost literally felt like there's no where in this tiny-not-so-tiny-but-big-also-not-so-big-brain, to squeeze that little process - to find the answer to that question.

I told/asked him, "Can i answer u that, later or tomorrow? I'm having a brain overload right now."

MARS! on 27th August..

I got this email today:

Dear All,


*Two moons on 27 August*

*27th Aug the Whole World is waiting for .............*

Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August.

It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will cultivate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of earth. Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am . It will look like the earth has 2 moons. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again.


This email is somewhat true..
if not for the fact that they have forgotten to put the... YEAR!
It happened like 4 years ago.. 27th August 2003.

I remember i went down with Fazi and my girls, sat at the beach at night to catch a glimpse of the 'red' star/moon - whatever u want to call it.

So.. whoever got this and was looking forward to it.. sorry guys..
u're not 25 minutes too late.. but 4 YEARS too late.

but no worries guys,
Nah.. kesian siapa yang's a pic of Mars from

Beautiful isn't it?

kalau nadhrah ada


I was driving, while Eema and Nadhrah was at the backseat, talking.

kak eema, nadhrah nak yang pink tu.

tak boleh. kak eema nak.

alaaaa..nadhrah tak nak kasi kak eema nadhrah punya pushpop ah......
kalau nadhrah ada.


Many interesting, fun and not so normal things, happened this week:

:: Found out about the small world.. or more like small singapore, we live in, when a fellow blogger, saw me in my own office.
:: Went down to borders late at night with my girls, and girls only, cause the boys were out of town.
:: the girls and I made cupcakes! and it was the first time for me. Actually, it was more like designing it la.. cause Mai was the one who baked the cupcakes. We just had fun. Thanks dearie!
:: I did makeup on someone and took quite nice photos.
:: Met the uncles and aunts at a wedding, and they suggested that we disappear from singapore next sunday. Have to check with 'The Boss'
:: The girls and I, went to Om's place to cubit and gigit main2 dgn iman zulfikar - the cutest baby.
:: Blossmobile had a flat tyre - for the FIRST time, terkena paku. Alhamdulillah, it happened when I was at my brother's place, so I, of course, called him down to help me with the tyres. Thanks Om!
:: Being greeted by a lost mexican, whom I miss over the weekends, when i got home.

the interesting girl u fell for

A guy sees a girl..
she's interesting.. the way she is.
She looks so cheerful and jovial - among her friends,
so confident, doing the stuff she likes.
She's quite fashionable and attractive.

He woos her. She responds.

Then he wants to keep her to himself.
She loves him, she listens to him.

She stop seeing her friends.
She stop doing the stuff she likes.
She dresses down, as per his request,
and she's with him all the time.
She grows dependent on him.
He is all she has now.

Then he sees..
She's not as cheerful and jovial, anymore.
She's not as confident as before.
She's not as interesting as before.
She's clinging to him ALL the time.
She's kind of boring.

Then he sees ANOTHER girl,
she's interesting.. the way she is.

what am i trying to say?
let ur wife continue to be the interesting person, u once fell for.

this is not meant to be a poem or anything like that.
I'm so not good at those. =p

driving the car

just now, hadi came out from my car, jumping with joy and dancing about.

because, he drove the car - only for about 50m or so.. kat bawah block.
but that, sure made his night. =D

NO Hadi, of course you cannot borrow the car.
No, not even when you're 18.

jap, I transfer CINTA

ingat tak, hari tu dalam bag I ada CINTA?

well, i just bought the soundtrack.
yeah i know.. macam slow.. but.. whatever la..

I bought it and i'm loving it!
no, not McD..
cinta punya soundtrack.


me : i got the song
nur : how do u find it?
me : errr.. i bought it.
nur : hehe.. as in how do u find the song?

Ok, this reminds me of my japanese friend, Mika. I brought her out for dinner in town. After she got her food, i asked her," how do you find the food here?"
She looked at me, blur, and answered quite hesitantly, "eeh!(japanese style) you... brought me here"

=D.. i miss her.

me : u want it?
nur : can!
me : jap, sekarang, I tengah transfer CINTA (to my phone)
nur : haha! so u will be like a cupid.

it feels like

I like weird feelings - the 'it-feels-like'
but it's actually not so..


friday night go out late.
come home, sleep,
and wake up on Saturday, thinking it's Sunday.
But it's only SATURDAY.

Or like when the day is filled with sooooo many things and activities,
by night time,
it feels like the morning was yesterday.

like having been up north on friday and saturday.
Come back early sunday morning.
Then, Sunday, go out with nadh to the nearby mall.
it feels like i've been home the whole time.
hard to believe i was in a totally different place the same time, yesterday.

yup.. those kind of weird feelings. I like.

this time, all that she wants.. to eat.

what?, she didn't balloon up, when we left, she's still the same size as when we arrived. next..

WHAT? NO! she didn't shove her finger down her throat to puke the food out.. she doesn't have that eating disorder.

.... no, we didn't weigh, but she's not going to be complacent. She says she'll be going to the gym very soon.

... yes, the food are all generally ok. And i have developed a theory...the more hungrier we are, the nicer the food taste.

... what?.. oh.. takde actually this time, it's just to use up the free one night stay voucher, before it expires., we are NOT going up north again any time soon. at least there are no plans la..

...yes, it was one of the most enjoyable time i've spent with her.
