After 3.12.2011

Wedding reception for KK side is done, now left with Sarikei side. And the venue is atttttttt *drum rolls* 

long house!

It's going to be an occasion with lots of tuaks and beer, karaoke frenzy, poco poco and whatnots. I can only imagine ha ha ha ha.

I havent got any pictures from my kk side wedding reception, actually i had few but hubbeh brought his camera back to Kuching (kch).  Speaking of which, i'm going to fly off kk to kch this afternoon, this one's for good. Of course the sadness is there but, i am still here in KK because my husband let me to pursue what i've started while he stays alone in Kch. Sedih ok stay sendiri2 tiada wife dirumah urus itu ini.

So hubbeh, i'm kambing homeeeeee. Ambil gue di airport nanti yaaaahhh.

About my reception in KK, I'm glad i get many positive feedback from most of my guests. Food wise, overall said good, entertainment tidak payah cakap la haha. Macam penyanyi2 bah yg datang pigi reception saya tu heee :), one of 'em is Juend. Emcee performed great, you know what he did? two of my friends were singing Celine Dion's 'because you loved me'. If you know the song well, there's one distinct high note before last chorus.
You know what happened when my friends reached that note?
My emcee mute the volume, left only my friends voice yg bertariak. hahaha. Nasib nafas dorang panjang boleh sustained the high note. That's sooo funny sampai terstop sekijap conversation saya dgn rakan rakan ok. With that,i never listen to that song the same way again. So fani.

Of course there were things that didn't went as planned. I never expect 2 of my tables were unoccupied, coz i am very certain the guests sitting in that table have confirmed their attendance. What hurt me the most was that, they dont even bother to inform either to me or my husband for not showing up. I remember i invited all friends and families, bukan orang yang baru kenal kami 2-3 hari. Uh i'm so emo about this. A friend trying to console us, dia bilang 'itu bukan kawan lah tu kalau begitu'. I'd like to believe so.

I know this kind of situation is expected to happen in every wedding, but i cant accept it despite my awesome reception. So friends, respond accordingly to any wedding reception u're about to attend.
Tidak dapat datang, cakap saja tidak.
Maybe attending, cakap saja maybe tapi kasi confirm
Dapat datang, cakap datang and confirmed. kalau tidak datang juga, inform somebody. If u have last minute situation to face that refrain you from coming, we would understand but at least, inform us. Dont make us feel that we are inviting outsiders who didnt bother about the wedding at all. 

I'm getting more emo, should've stop now.

And by the way, the foods for the 2 unoccupied tables were already cooked, i have to distributed the foods to my guests who stayed till the end of the event. Most of my families went home early, they were driving back to Ranau that night juga ok -_-".

Since i dont have any pictures to share, i'll let you see the pics from Beverly, the makeup artist for my special day. here's the facebook page MuaH KK

Ok, that's all to share for now.  More picah coming soon! yiheeee.

9 days!

I went to JBridal for gown testing today. I gain extra weight here and there but ok lah, muat juga...waktu berdiri lah haha..waktu duduk main tahan2 nafas seja la auummm.

One of the gown i opt for :)
That was one of my pre wedding pictures. I wore it during sunset shot, the gown is glowing dibawah sinaran matahari sunset. I am the first one to wear it coz ramai yang tidak muat in it since the gown is using a zipper instead of the typical lace up corset. 

Another gown i shall reveal after the reception oukay? :D

What else? Oh i've selected my bouquet juga. pinkish gerbera and purple rose. Nice yes? I shall plant si gerbera at home in future. harap2 tumbuh la coz i like them soooo veryyyyyy much.

Somemore..i've been wanting to write about this since last week. One important advice to share with future brides among the readers. Please please please be careful upon selecting your wedding vendor, be it your decorator pelamin ka, caterer ka, tukang buat kek ka, tukang pasang canopy ka, everything. Pigi lah read testimonial about their service. Fb works most of the time. Bukan terus pigi klik 'photo' utk tgk previous work dorang coz it might be bogus, manatau kopipasta dari internet.

I've read a post shared by my friend about penipu punya wedding planner in kk. I dont want to type the detail in here, it's not the nature of this blog (hahaha). For more info,my fb friends can find the post in my wall coz i shared it as well. Cerita cerita yang tidak bagus pasal wedding ni bukan utk kasi aib siapa siapa, anggap saja sebagai pengajaran utk kita to be extra cautious. I dont enjoy reading the details, i cant even imagine the horror.

After you hv read the post, i guess you'll know what to do. Not that you have obligation of doing something but, you know what i mean lah.

Ok lah, i think that's all to share. Other stuffs shall be reveal after 9 days ok. Banyak lagi kerja mau buat, malar lagi menaip2 disini haha.

Take care y'all! :)

Coming towards 3dec

I had an alarming dream about my wedding reception.

In that dream my decorator came to decorate the hall during the reception bah. Pukul 8pm ok.. Orang makan2 dia sibuk taruk2 bunga. Baru bukan kaler bunga yg saya mau lagi tu. Saya pula penuh dgn kekecewaan berteriak 'kasi balik duit aku penipu'. Garang or not? Dalam mimpi seja lah begitu haha.

Then, i did my own makeup. lepas touchup baru sedar yang 'eh si Beverly ba yg patut buat ni,suda bayar pun'. Aduhai.

Bila bangun pagi, the first thing i did was go thru my guests list. We are aiming at least 200 guests to attend, tapi tgk list, 150 org pun tidak sampai. You know why?

- It's coming towards the wedding month. Berapa banyak invitation sd kamu dapat utk december wedding seja? Aduhai.
- Most of my friends who are about the same age as me are tying knot end of this year as well, so ramai decline. Not only my friends, but my cousin is getting married 5 days after my reception.

Well, all of these are part and parcel of organizing an event like this yes? Cool seja bah sy. Bikin stressful lagi fikir mo packing stuffs then pindah ke Kuching. Tidak tau mana satu mau pack dulu. Kereta tu tahun depan baru kasi pindah pg Kch. I was thinking of suru adik sambung byr loan tu kereta but see how la.

Ok lah the ramblings shall stop now.

Till then.

Writing mode

My thesis-writing setting.

facing the wide Sg. Batang Rajang. Halo Sibu.

When i'm on my quick neck stretch, i just flip the curtain and enjoy the view

Not the typical sea view punya view (??) nonetheless, it's good to have this kind of setting when you're doing a task that requires 110% of your focus. My 2 long years work depends strongly on this thesis. You see, one can do enormous kinds of work but at the end of the day, all the hard work boils down to one single paper/report that defines it. So kalau bos bilang 'buat balik ini report/thesis', means whatever you wrote is not convincing enough. So if you cant convince them, confuse them (??)

The most difficult thing in writing this so far is to organize every facts in my head and type it down accordingly.
I've tried to organize the facts by drafting it in my book,but once i started typing, all the planned flow is changing. I've tried typing sub topic by sub topic but when i joined them to make a 'story', i still have to change here and there coz they appear individually rather than a continuation of something. Last2, i delete everything and write from scratch coz apa yang suda ada bikin bingung seja. Anyway, chapter outline is the first, must-thing to do. It focuses your mind to write accordingly. 

And a good place to write complements everything. I'm not implying the message of having to stay in hebat2 place just to write anything nice, it just complements the right state of mind that u're in.

Ok lah, that's all. Pening pula sy tgk tulisan panjang2 disini.

I view it differently

Upon reading Just post about this, it brings back memories of almost 13 years ago. Most of my friends know the fact that my mom had passed away due to cancer,and despite me writing down few posts in my blog about her, only few know the story behind it.

My late mom is a nurse, and even a nurse herself, she found out about the 50sen size of lump on her left breast quite late. She was 40. During that moment we were still in Lahad Datu, so mom and dad had to traveled to Tawau, the nearest hospital with such facilities for treatment. She went to operation and removed her whole left breast. When she returned home, she was never the same person anymore. I was 13-14, it was painful to not be able to do anything.

Fast forward, after the operation and months of healing process, i can see that she regained her old self back. She had moved on with life, even start working again. Everything is good. Until a year later.

She went for post review after the operation, and Dr. mentioned her cancerous cell were spreading. She played it cool this time, she went for chemo treatments. I saw the physical changes of her after chemo, but as far as i can recall, she never complained. How difficult it must be for her to stay positive despite the pain that she faced, and to see us everyday, knowing it might be her last day with us. Anyway, i am glad she did that, coz it has left a profound impact on myself, especially at times of trial. She chose to stay optimistic and never give up.

She passed away peacefully on June 2001 at the age of 43. Only that time i know about how severe her cancer was. It was already spreading to the liver. I took me a week after her passing to say 'I am glad God ended her suffering', i believe in God's way although i seldom go to church.

The cancer had damaged my mom's body but never her strength. And that is the greatest legacy that she left us with. That attitude had shaped me to become who i am today.

Besides, i had a new perspective of death. I read a book about the prisoners during Pol Pot's era, they viewed death as 'a privilege' coz they rather be dead than be perpetually tortured. Similarly in a way, I believe God loves her more, so He took her to heaven and end her sufferings. While i was browsing the old album at home, i saw her funeral pictures and the image of her lifeless body in the coffin. I cant shed a tear anymore, i am just thankful it happened.

My late mom during her life, is a strong fighter, optimistic and always put her children first. Ma, although your time is short, you've taught us enough. You are always in our mind in everything we do.

Overdue post

As mentioned in my last post, i attended a conference in USM engineering campus in Nibong Tebal, Penang as a paper presenter. I arrived in Bayan Lepas International airport a day earlier from the conference date, fetched by the conference' secretariate, and headed straight to Nibong Tebal. The journey took about 1 hour coz it was a peak hour which cause congestion especially at the Penang bridge. Despite that, we managed to take pictures on the bridge itself yihuuu.

Throughout the conference, the participants stayed in the postgrad hostels located outside the campus, if i get it right, Desasiswa is the name. I loveeee the hostel, we have bathroom inside our room (not the sharing type oukay), there's a lif (hahaha) up to level 7 (my room is at level 6), and most importantly we have the view of jalan raya with mat rempit merempit every weekend starting friday night. Now i can officially declared i have witness the real scene of mat rempit doing superman pose on their bike and yang satu orang tu lagi berdiri di belakang -_-". What a scene. kalau ada polis lagi siok (??)

My presentation was scheduled at the last session, as expected not many audiences but the secretariats, the other presenters and the chairperson himself. I was expecting less question as well, but boy how wrong i was. My chair person is a man of curiosity. I ended my presentation answering no less than 5 questions. Anyway, i enjoyed the session. This is way different from my past experiences presenting in exhibitions, in competitions coz the chairperson is always an academician, they (most of the time) asked the right question, the kind of question that you always doubt in conducting your research. Boleh bikin gagap oh dengar soalan begitu.

Apart from that, i received so many funny responses from the international participants. A friend from HK asked me why i do not wear a hijab, he even asked the male driver 'how many wives you have' -_-", some thought i look like pan asian -_-", my Nigerian friends complimenting my english coz i dont have the kind of slang that i cant really explain how but i know how it sound, which makes me happy hahaha. Some people dont know where is Sabah but they know where Borneo is -_-". Some Sjung friends thought 'bulih bah kalau kau' sounds like 'bulih ba kalakaw' HAHAHAHA..aduhaiiii how can i not love this conference.

Anyway, enjoy the piccies.

After the closing ceremony which is on Sat, a day after i went to the island coz I think it's bad idea to stay in the mainland when you have a morning flight to catch tmrw. I dont wanna risk to be stuck at the bridge, hari isnin lagi tu. So i stayed a night in Tune hotel and since the check in time is 2pm, i had time to jalan2 walaupun mengantuk.

IMHO, Tune hotel is at the best of location. I traveled alone and enjoyed it, i even went to Prangin Mall, Komtar, and i accidentally found the 'best cendol in Penang' while i was on my way to buy the buah Salak and buah pala (nutmeg) pickles (situated along the Penang road heading to Georgetown). All places are so near to each other.

A is where Tune hotel is situated, B is Prangin Mall and the one in circle is the pedestrian crossing bridge. You dont have to cross the road at all. Along the way to Prangin mall is Komtar Walk. Banyak juga shops sana. Ada wifi lagi tu, sempat sy check-in heh :p.

The Best Penang cendol is the stall on the right. Semua makan di tepi jalan dkt longkang termasuk saya la ba juga.
Pun femes juga sebab pernah masuk dalam nwpaper. ttuuuu nnaaa dia lekat.

All in all, this trip is a memorable one for me, not only because i traveled alone to a new, foreign place which elevates my confidence to another higher level but i make friends with interesting people as well. I shall not forget their remarks about me hahaha. Moreover, i discovered so much thing about myself and people around me. Now i can say i have truly understand the meaning of 'jauh perjalanan, luas pemandangan' rather than typing it per se in this post.

Till then.
