Birds on wire

One fine evening, I saw a flock of birds on a wire when we walked to our car. Cutenyer berderet2 dorang bertenggek. Ala2 macam Pixar's short story For the Birds hehe.

Birds on wire

Since Cheep parked the car near the lamp post i thought i can get a good shot of the birds right below it. Adalah dalam few seconds dongak 90degrees nak amik gambar then only i realized the possibility kene taik burung is 99.9%. Sangat lambat pickup aku neh!

Birds on wire

Barulah terkial2 nak masuk dalam keta sambil balance badan sbb sblah tuh longkang. Huhuhu i was lucky enough tak kene pape (-.-')

Birds on wire

Burung tuh tengah tunggu keta abes lalu then dorang turun makan. Tuh jer citer saya :)

Lunch @ Georgetown Kopitiam, Wangsa Walk

We planned to make a surprise birthday get together for D but terkantoi plak dalam email biler kak fara terincludekan email group. lol! Si D plak bleh buat senyap2 konon cam tatau biler kitowang tgh rancak borak dalam gmail. But biler Dani noticed terpaksa lah sumer start berlakon that cengkononnyer we will proceed je the gathering on Friday wpon D dah found out. The only fact that she didn't know is that the real thing was ekceli on Wednesday.

So pada hari kejadian we gathered at Popeye Midvalley and waited for the birthday girl to make an appearance yang dibawa oleh driver yang ditempah khas. We were so sure that she'll be surprised that the GLC were having a meetup without her! And it worked hehehe!

Penang Revisit - Day 2

That morning we had breakfast around 7am. Since hotel tak ramai orang, there was no buffet /sad. So we can only order nasi goreng/mihun goreng served with telur mata kerbau. Lepas tuh balik bilik pack barang and trus checkout. You'll notice that this entry akan ada banyak pekataan "dolu" because that shows lama giler tak balik kampung! Biler balik terkejut sana tekejut sini tgk changes. Last month balik Penang pon kejap jer pegi kampung Cheep, attend kenduri, masuk gurney mall, makan kat gurney drive, masuk queensbay mall and lalu batu feringhi. Ok menyimpang plak. Back to present, Nani picked us up and off we went to the land office for our hearing session at 10am. Sangat nervous time nie because we don't really know what to do during the hearing and what to expect. Siap ada tampal notis kat luar nama kitowang huhu!

Penang Revisit

Masuk mini court, kitowang betiga...me, my sis and makcik misah kene baca sumpah. Then the pegawai (ptd kot) started asking questions and mintak original documents. Kudos to my sis because sumer documents dia bawak and susun elok dalam clear folder senang nak carik. Geran tanah lah, cukai tanah, cukai pintu, sijil mati, surat itu surat ini. Meanwhile, banyak gak scene senyap sambil tunggu the pegawai layan menulis...macam tulis karangan jer aku nengok. But our case agak clear cut, so alhamdulillah tada pape scene tak puas ati macam dalam drama yang slalu kiter tgk biler pasal pembahagian harta pusaka hehe. Dalam setengah jam lebey our case dah settled yay! Once done, we visited Tok Chik's house (my dad's aunt) yang dah kene abandoned because nobody lives there anymore.

Penang Revisit

Dalam banyak2 umah atok, umah Tok Chik lah paling cozy surrounded by gardens and macam2 jenis pokok buah. Tapik lepas Tok Chik passed away tada dah sumer tuh /sad. Check out the wall texture yang macam anyam2 tuh. Mmg classic oh!

Penang Revisit

Lepas visit Mak Wah (My dad's cousin's wife), we planned to visit Mak Teh (My dad's half sister). Lalu jalan Balik Pulau yang pusing2 macam Genting tuh. Kalo dolu bleh tgk banyak pokok durian and ada net kaver blah2 atas jalan sbb takot durian jatuh kene keta, but now we were greeted with constructions /sad. Dorang nak buat flyover yang merentas pokok durian, so lepas nie should be lagik cepat sampai lah and less dangerous for drivers and motorcyclists.



Sampai jer bawah, Nani took us for lunch at Cargas Cafe. She said kedai nih famous for nasik kandar in the area. Sampai2 tgk queue bleh tahan gak panjang and kari dia sedap. Tak macam kari mamak sangat yang pekat and masam2, this one more like kari melayu.

Penang Revisit

My sis's happy face tak sabar nak makan.

Penang Revisit

Row of old shops. Dolu kecik2 balik kampung yang staun skali jer tuh, biler lalu jalan nie tau lah maknanya nak sampai umah dah tuh :D

Penang Revisit

The other side of shop lot. I remembered there was a salon here where mom used to go. The Cargas Cafe is at the left end of this row.

Penang Revisit

Muahaha vintage look takk? Signboard kedai tuh pon classic kan? Tempat2 camni is hard to find nowadays. Better amik gambar slagik boleh. Dolu tak de nye lah nak bazir filem amik gambar bangunan semata yedak.

Penang Revisit

Lepas dah burped2 ayam goreng and tangan bau kari, we headed to umah Mak Teh and borak2. Then kitowang singgah balik umah Nani to kill time because bus transnasional ke KL gerak kol 3.30. Time tuh baru pukul 1pm. The night before datang tak nampak aper dah siang baru lah terang nak amik gambar. Gambar far left is the driveway nak masuk umah from main road. Gambar tengah is umah macik Misah and sblah was umah my Tok. Hurmmphh dah kene roboh yang blah atas sbb bocor teruk and skang dah rupa dah macam garage /sad. Rindu ohh umah lama tuh and it's sad that we don't have any picture of the whole house. Hope one day, biler ada duit boleh lah buat sebijik umah kat stu and would be awesome if we can build the house exactly macam umah Tok yang dolu based on our memories. Possible ker? Depan umah macik Misah and Tok plak ada skolah baru. Dolu nampak bendang and pokok ngahahaha. It's sad to see banyak kawasan2 kampung dah developed jadik kawasan perumahan. Sungai2 kecik sumer dah mati. Ohhh tambah sedey (T__T)




I think less than 1 hour kat umah Nani tuh we decided to balik KL sbb aku dah start2 nantok hehe. I'm sure Nani pon dah penat kene drive us around, sian gak dia. So sampai jer Nibong Tebal trus beli ticket bus Eagle aper tah sbb tuh jer bus yang dah nak gerak. Not bad gak our trip nie, because by 2pm me and my sis dah settled kan hal tanah, sempat visit relatives and sempat makan nasik kandar. Although it's a short one, but dapat jugak reminisced our childhood memories :)

Penang Revisit

On 2nd week of January, me and my sis head up north for a hearing at land office. I can say spanjang hidup nie, this is my first time travel ngan my sis alone...by bus plak tuh (^.~) Something funny happened while we're on our way to Penang which the same thing happened a while ago when i traveled with my dad by bus.

Usually bus akan stop for toilet break at R&R right? So time tuh my dad turun with few other passengers while i stay put in the bus. Suddenly bus gerak macam nak exit from R&R. Aku dengan panicnyer jerit kat driver asked him to stop but he answered "takpe saya park kat depan nih jer" hangennyer aku time tuh because it's quite far from the toilet area and i had to wait until the driver stop sbb kang aku plak tatau kat mana dia park. dahler malam buta and drizzling plak tuh cemanalah orang nak nampak which bus yang dorang naik earlier. so i called my dad's phone but dia dah tereksidenly answered the phone without realizing it because he was trying to call me at the same time. I know he was really panic because i heard him chanting "habeslaaa habeslaaa" Aku pon jerit over the phone "Bapakkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!" tapik dia tak dengar. Instead i heard his conversation with other passengers yang also panic kene tinggal bus.

Bapak: Anak saya ada dalam itu bus tapik dia tido!
Me: (Adehhh!)
Bapak: Kiter share amik taxi sampai Nibong Tebal dan amik bag kat sana

And i was like ohh nooo! Kang dia amik taxi plakkk! Lepas bus stopped aku pon trus lari turun pegi carik dia. Dalam hujan okehhhh! Mmg bodo punyer bus driver...sangat tak patot buat camtuh! Then i saw him walking towards the taxi area, and aku pon terpaksa buat drama swasta lagik "Bapakkkkkk!!!" I tot my voice kuat but susah gak oh nak project suara dalam hujan! After caught their attention we ran back to the bus sbb takot kene tinggal lagik. Naik jer bus kene bising ngan my dad.

Bapak: Tuh lah hang kejer dok tidoq jer tau!
Me: Aper plak! Dah soh driver tuh stop!
Me: (Driver bus dia tak marah, tapik marah cheq plak -.-')

But looking back, that was seriously funny! Mmg kenangan sungguh and baper kali citer scene tuh ngan my sis musti tergelak ngan my dad punyer kalut. Ohhh back to present, when the bus stopped at R&R, my sis went to the toilet when the bus moved...again! Dejavu siot! Yang bes nyer my sis tak bawak turun henpon dia. So i went to the driver and said ada orang tak naik lagik. The driver dengan relaxnyer cakap "takper, kiter benti makan for 30 mins" and then he parked sebelah deretan bus. Aper lahh masalah dorang nie? Susah sangat ker nak inform awal2 before passengers turun if he intended to tukar parking spot?! Kalo orang tak ingat plate number caner? Time tuh i just hope my sis doesn't panic because we just rerun the same story that morning! So when i got off the bus and heading towards the toilet, i saw her and few other passengers as well. Ada sket muka mengah disitu ahahha and she said "ada sket panic ah tapik dah agakkk dah!":P

Then we arrived in Penang around 3.30pm and naik taxi gi hotel sri mesia. Mahal betoi taxi letak fixed rate RM15 padahal kalo ikot meter RM5.90 jer. Lepas tuh kuar balik carik makan kat Sunshine mall which to our disappointment tak banyak choice langsung. Dahler tada keta terpaksa lah menapak. Luckily time nak balik hotel tuh we saw a food court building. We ordered tomyam sup, ayam masak pedas, sotong goreng and kailan ikan masin. Baru jer nak hepi food dah sampai i saw something weird floating dalam tomyam. Alahaiii anak lipas plakkk grosss! Orang kedai tuh appologize banyak kali and we asked her to change it to sup daging to avoid dorang buat kejer senang, buang lipas pehtu serve balik. Lepas makan, jalan balik hotel and freshen up. Because we're going to Macik Misah's house that night to discuss nak cakap aper besok.

Nani our cousin picked us up and bawak gi umah dia. Lepas borak2 and balik hotel, we stopped by the nearest kedai makan to tapau our food then makan dalam bilik. Layan tv kejap pehtu tidoq because it's gonna be early morning for us the next day. Alhamdulillah day 1 went smoothly according to plan.

Shitty Tuesday

It started since this morning when everything started to go wrong. Some of you may know for the past few days, i became pengguna LRT sejati. So Cheep helped me to drop & pick up at KJ station. So today we leaved the house a bit late, it was almost 8am and it's raining. We decided to try NKVE since hari2 sblom nih traffic kat fed hiway still menunjukkan pattern yang sama. Then it all started...where everything goes wrong.

1. Time nak masuk toll NKVE, dah sangkut jam. tapik takper...normal lah tuh jam kan. Tapik traffic yang paling dasat is the jalan yang nak combine ngan main road ke KJ (i don't know nama jalan). Jam dengan sendatnyer secara total sbb bottleneck kat depan. Setelah rasa SANGAT lama disitu, Cheep decided to U-turn kat blah giant kot. Tapik tatau caner nak gi KJ ikot jalan lain plak. Kalo nak u-turn balik mmg kejer giler because the traffic was really heavy along the strecth. So i asked Cheep to send me sampai KL trus because 1jam lebey to sampai LRT, naik LRT lagik 30mins, nak jalan lagik from station to office dalam hujan. Mau pukul baper sampai opis tuh? huaaa!

2. So we decided nak masuk NPE. Tapik biler sampai kat jambatan ala2 penang bridge tuh ada polis jaga. Kalo ikot trepik lite mmg takleh pegi straight. Tapik petang2 ada jer keta yang tunggu depan trepik lite tuh...muskel2. Dengan sedikit kaget Cheep trus masuk fedhiway yang menghala balik ke shah alam. Aku dah start panas bontot mulalah bagi suggestion yang merapu. Panic okehh meeting kol 10.30. hohhh lepas nih tanak dah set meeting pepagi.

3. Then exit Subang dengan harapan yang tinggi...skali nampak jam jugak! ohhh kelatnyer muka aku time tuh. Lepas jer lalu sunway pyramid, traffic dah ok sket. Bayar lagik toll NPE Rm1.60x2 :( Then masuk KL traffic still agak ok. Dalam smart tunnel pon jam kat tempat biasa which is at the exit. Sampai opis almost 10am (-.-). Sian Cheep kene redah jam balik SA plak.

4. Tetiba Cheep called tanya if ada teramik touch&go tak. I remembered i saw him pegang touch&go tuh before masuk smart tunnel. and usually dia letak tempat biasa lepas pakai pelik lah hilang camtuh jer dah geledah satu keta and my handbag still x jumpe. Dahler baru reload. Sib ler tak reload banyak :(

5. Pehtu 10.30 masuk meeting sorang2 (abes macho la neh sbb my team mate ada hal lain) dengan blurnyer dan tak ready nya kene pungpangpungpang ngan users. Haih sumer benda tak kene neh! So i was like hmmm what else could possibly go wrong after this?

6. Gi lunch kat NZ, food sampai lambat. Kelaparannnn! Mas sorang jer yang dapat dolu...sampai lah dia habes makan baru kitowang dapat our food grrrr!

I think tuh jelah kot. Since entry nih terpospone aku pon dah luper aper lagik benda takbes yang terjadik. Sumernya kebetulan tapik biler benda yang tak bes happened berderet2 sangat lah tak bes and boleh spoil mood for the rest of the day.

Orphan the movie

This entry might have a spoiler. So for those who haven't watch and wanted to watch, please skip reading this ;) The movie flow dia agak predictable like any other psychopath punyer citer. But the twist is kinda interesting. Budak yang blakon as Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman) nih mmg terel blakon dengan muka manipulative with fake russian accent hehe.

The sweetest thing actress in this movie is Max (Aryana Engineer). Everytime i saw her on screen i kept saying how adorable she is! I read her profile that she is hearing-impaired in real life /sad. Her father is Iranian and her mother is Scottish. She's such a sweet heart and a great little actress!

Citer nih sangat hebat sampai emosional telampau tgk. Risau giler if anything happen to lil Max. And yang paling menyampah biler bapak dia baghal sangat backing Esther. Moral of the story, always trust your mother/wife's instinct hehe. At least do some research lah kannn don't just ignore their complaints. Expect lots of scenes yang terkejut and for me as usual nyorok blakang bantal lah, part yang takde pape skeri pon siap melatah opocot. Ngaahahaha!

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Selesai nonton a stop motion film, Fantastic Mr. Fox. Dolu tgk trailer tak baper menarik, well because it's a stop motion hehe. Macam citer Night Before Christmas camtuh lah. But the movie has high rating 8.3/10 kat IMDB so haruslah kene tgk! And after watching it, i agree it's a good movie plus it has a great voice cast :D



Each character ada own identity. Yang dua atas nie is the mr & mrs fox. Ada jer idea mr fox nie nak carik makan. And mrs fox plak character dia sangat cool, like ppl always said behind every great man (fox) there's a great woman :D

Character human (left) plak mmg ada pangai manusia ego. Kalo tak puas ati, habes binasa sumer benda sampai tak sedar benda lain yang dorang hilang. Yang rat (right) tuh part dia sket tapik gedik abes hahaha.

This is how small the props were. I always admire orang yang boleh buat miniature. So if anyone running out of idea what movie to watch, give this movie a chance. Because for me jalan citer dia something different from other animation movie.

Lunch @ Dominos, The Weld

Tetiba tingin nak makan classified chicken ari tuh. As far as i know of, Dominos tak banyak dine in and time tuh i can only think of Midvalley tapik jauhnyer yaamatz. So dengan bantuan aifontriji mas, she checked the website and found out that the nearest Dominos to our office is The Weld. So to The Weld we went.

Sampai2 trus order kat counter. Cashier tuh tanya nama, rupanya for order updates. Wuuuu but tgk lah tuh salah eja nama huh! I always faced that problem where orang eja Suzila instead of Suliza haish!

Lunch @ Dominos, The Weld

Mas category classic ker? new york style ker? crunchy thin ker? hehehe
Lunch @ Dominos, The Weld

Pizza baru sampai. One classified chicken and the other one is spicy sambal pizza. Both thin crust so ada rasa cam makan lempeng gak ler. Cepat jer abes and risau tak cukup hahaha.
Lunch @ Dominos, The Weld

Then tetiba ada waiter bagi calendar for each table. Mintak dua tak kasik hurmphh. So wat muka kesian kat mas sbb aku takde desktop calendar lagik heheheh. The calendar cam style subway ada promotion coupons boleh koyak biler nak order.

11 Januari

Why 11th Januari is a special date? It's the day i met Cheep for the first time. He report duty kat MMSC with another couple of new staff and Niza HR introduce them around. Kenapa aku senang nak ingat? Because aku pon budak baru kat stu (one week earlier) so of course lah check out budak baru lain yang for sure muka nervous pucat macam aku on my first day kat stu muahahaha. But i didn't catch his name, and i tot he's chinese tapik ada malay look but nak kater melayu ada chinese look. hurmphhh i'll find out later. Pehtuh aku sambung layan intenet kejer kat pc. Reminiscing the past....Who would've thought hehe!

That's why i love this song, 11 Januari by Gigi.


And that is why 11th Januari is so significant that we held our reception on that date :)Read wedding entry here ✿(。◕‿‿◕。)✿ It's nice to rekindle some past memories once in a while.

After 5 years of friendship, 6 months of engagement, we're now married for 1 year (^.^) Sangat setahun jagung but always berdoa yang baik2 buat kami. Read Cheep's nikah entry here and mine here.

Solemnisation @ Cheras

On the 10.01.10 (nice date huh) we celebrated our anniversary at the Look Out Point, Ampang. There are 5 restaurants there and we chose Haven, yang featured in paper recently. We arrived around 6pm, enough time for us to choose table and check out other restaurants to compare view.

At first dapat meja tepi because yang kat edge sumer dah ada orang duduk. But the waiter was very nice. He said once satu meja tuh dah kosong, he will transfer us to that table. And he kept his word, when the customer yang duduk meja tuh bangun jer he cleared and setup the table and bawak all our food there. *Happy! happy!*

Dinner @ Haven, Look Out Point Ampang

Duduk lama kat situ sampai dahaga balik. So we ordered a drink, Strawberry Barbican (pronounce Bar-bi-kan). It's a non-alcoholic drink and manufactured in Dubai. First time rasa....sedap gak macam soda! Should've order nih at first instead of ice lemon tea.

There was never a better emotion than this, knowing that i can share anything with my favorite person in the world, my best friend & my lou kong, Cheep bebeh ehehe ♥♥ p.s: I feel very bad because tak beli hadiah pape for him. Errr tunggu next monthlah eh chayang?

The frustrated part was, i still haven't receive my wedding video. I smsed the cousin twice with no reply, i'm afraid if i send another sms it's gonna be a harsh one. Sangat malas nak call and listen to more excuses -.-
