Reconcile

rentetan dari hal semalam

my boss did reply my mail a while after
and he did clarify on things

and now, just to clear the air,
yeah....we're good
not that we weren't
but we did speak heart to heart this morning
and no heart feelings
Alhamdulillah

and to make it even better,
I just got icing on the cake


syukur Alhamdulillah

may we have a Tea-rific year too!!!!

Letter of Disappointment

I just wrote one to the director

Call me mengada,
but I just couldn't keep it up inside
I could do it face to face, he just went off
I could do it via phone, I knew he's in a middle of an errand
so, I wrote him a 'love' email
just to let if out of my system! 

dont worry
no harsh words
just my 2 cents, in polite words

I am disappointed
I knew, I had resigned
but I did agreed to prolonged my service here
even for a month
it should be a deal

and do correct me if I'm wrong
a deal is not a deal unless 2 party did get something beneficial out of the terms
in which for this case, I didn't get any

I'm disappointed. totally
I've never had major issues with the company or management for the past 4 years
they had treated me good
and I had to say this, I did enjoyed working here

but now, as I'm ending my service here,
I felt...urm....unappreciated
out of sudden, they neglected me.
and how fair is that?


p/s: ikutkan aku, ade yg aku cabut je ni kang. masuk keje baru 1st feb ni....lagi bagus kan?

Friday, January 21, 2011

not well

at the clinic!
'________'

I'm down with fever last night
I was well all along
sempat mkn nasi lemak by mak (MIL)
oh yeah. we had a sleepover at mak's place last night
as dear myPerson went off for futsal with his friends,
I stay at home, watching Kayangan

habis je Kayangan, I rasa mcm seram sejuk
satu badan tetiba mcm sakit2
sengal2.....
rasa nk kene demam urat...

sempat text myPerson, and doze off
sedar2 ade org kiss dahi, with a glass of water on a hand and a pill on the other

pastu, I had trouble sleeping
pusing sini tak kena, pusing sana tak kena
myPerson being such a sweetheart, urut sana sini
kesian dia...tak pepasal dia pon tak dpt nk tdo
kejap2, i terjaga, tgk dia pon terjaga
he'll usap2, tepuk2 i mcm bobok kan baby :)
love u syg!

and pagi ni, he initially took half day off
konon nk hantar i g klinik
tp mak offered to bring me
so instead of following us, he stayed home
tau2, dia amik cuti terus! :)

so td g klinik, ngan mak
nothing serious
just demam biasa
but with ulcers all over my mouth,
it makes it slightly worse la

and yeah
I've been introduced to folic acid
one of the much needed vitamins for those yg trying to conceive
nk tau kebaikan dia, google sendiri la k

k lah
pening dah
nk tidoooooooo

hopefully, by the time myPerson got back from solat,
I'll be ok
nak balikkkkkkkk
eh nk g tesco dulu
nk beli groceries sikit

n kalau dh betol ok,
untung2, dpt tgk khurafat tonight!
;)

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

rilek la!

baru sebulan kawin kot?
lek laaaa

i yg rilek ni tak pepasal stress sbb org keliling
we're definitely enjoying each other's companion
adjusting to the new environment and responsibilities are sure not an easy task

but we're coping ok

xmo la bagi komen yg bukan²
bottom line, kami tak plan!
ade rezeki, ade laaaa

jgn la buat andaian sendiri
jgn la ckp bende yg menyakitkan hati
jgn la luah ape yg tak patut
apetah lagi yg berbau sindiran yg menyentuh privasi kami

Resepi 2 - Nasi Ayam

ari sabtu aritu,
tinggal sesorg kt umah
terasa mcm suri rumah pulak
plus, its our first weekend yg dok umah
sblm ni ade je program ke sana sini

so ni ade peluang dok umah,
i ambil kesempatan utk feel suri rumah
dr pagi, dok kemas satu umah
mop and vacuum bagai
cuci baju, cadar, telekung, towel etc
fuuuuuhhh...mmg pnat
siapa kata suri rumah ni goyang kaki huh huh huh????

setel semua, terasa cam nk masak
nk masak nasi

:)

Cara-cara
1. Blend kering bahan *
2. Lebur semua bahan dalam periuk, and renih dgn api kecil. tambah garam secukup rasa
3. hiris daun sup n daun bawang sblm hidang

Note: air tu biar lebih. akan diguna utk nasi pula
  


Sambal Nasi Ayam

Bahan-bahan
5 ulas bawang putih *
4 tangkai lada merah *
sebiji jus limau kasturi / cuka
garam
gula





Cara-cara
1. Blend basah bahan * dan tuang dlm mangkuk
2. campur jus limau. tambah garam dan gula secukup rasa.
3. tambah air kalau terlalu pekat


Nasi Ayam

Bahan-bahan
1 pot beras basmathi (biasa pon boleh cuma basmathi, berasnye panjang²)

1 btg halia dititik
Air rebusan ayam
1 sudu butter (kalau ada)
sedikit minyak

Cara-cara
1. Cuci beras, and rendam beras at least 10 minit. (tips yg mmg i amalkan utk nasi berperisa eg: nasi lemak, beriani, minyak etc) Tos selepas 10 minit
2. Blend bahan *
3. Tumis bahan yg di blend dan serai dgn sedikit minyak n butter smpai kekuningan...kalau tak perlu minyak, tak payah..kang oily sgt.
4. masukkan beras. goreng perlahan smpai sekata, n beras jd kekuningan sikit. (jgn kacau sgt. takut beras pecah)
5. sukat air rebusan dalam rice cooker's pot (utk basmathi, 1 pot nasi = 2 pot air) rase air rebusan tu. make sure air tu masin mcm air laut (memang nk kasi masin sikit). on kan rice cooker, biar air rebusan terus mendidih dlm cooker.
6. bila air dlm cooker dh menggelegak and beras dh kekuningan, masuk beras dlm cooker. and biar masak.

Happy Birthday Hubster!

ok.
ni lambat update
almaklum, rumah blom ade line tenet
ni pon tumpang kt umah MIL
haru betul dpt menantu mcm ni
dh la jenguk umah mak seminggu bape kali je
asal balik, dok tenung laptop je...
hik hik

btw, last fri, 14 Jan, was myPerson's birthday
for the first time, for the last almost 5 years,
i tak plan ahead

mentang² dh kawin, kalau tak beli hadiah pon takpe
lagi pon dh bape kali i tanye dia nk hadiah ape
dia akan ckp "xpe...x pyh hadiah dah...ni kt depan ni lah hadiah paling 'besar'..."
haih...mcm mane lah saya tak jatuh cinta dgn awak??!!!
suke tau wat ayat2 manis gitu... ''___''

anyhoo, takkan la i wat dunno je on his bday kan
dh la first bday as my dear husband kan

so i buat la something 'surprise sikit' utk dia...

jumaat tu, diam², i amik half day
cuak betol masa tu
ye la...dh la tak mintak izin nk cuti dr suami
pastu boleh lagi legar² beli brg kt tesco
masa tu tawakal je byk²
betol takut sbb keluar tanpa izin suami.. :(
tp sbb btol² nekad nk wat surprise utk dia.....

takmolah citer detail sgt
fast forward ke masa dia blk

supposedly dia abis keje 5.30
so kalau betol on time, 5.45-5.50, dia akan smpai umah
so by that time, i dh ready dh kt umah
selang 30 saat, i tiptoed ke pintu umah
ngendap kt pintu tgk dia dh smpai belom

sekali kol 6 dia call, tanye i dh kt umah belom
cos dia baru nk kua opis... '__'
haih...pnat je i excited sesorg

dgr dia kate gitu
i lepak² jap tgk tv suria..ade tom tom bak masa tu

tunggu punye tunggu...
tepat pukul 6.23, org yg dinanti smpai


i dgr dia dh smpai dpn pintu


tp i lek je dulu
kasi dia tenung ni dulu

dh lama i impikan saat ni
i mean the moment that i could by a card
that says "My Husband"

tapi rupenye, tak byk kad utk birthday suami eh
i searched high and low for such card
kebykan is for anniversary...
yg ade ni pon cam tak bape cantik
tapi i rembat je coz its the only card yg i jumpe
ade perkataan "birthday" and "husband".. :)

bile dia ketuk pintu, baru i bukak
sengih² member smbil pegang kad tu
hihihih

masuk² umah, he was welcomed with this
 

he was....surprised!
truly surprised cos he said he'd never thought i'd do all this for him
;)

later while he got changed
i hidangkan our special dinner
which are all his favourite!
the menu?

jemput-jemput @ cekodok as starter

pic: googled (lupe nk snap)

roti jala and kari ayam for the main dish



excuse the messiness...dh separuh jln mkn baru teringat nk snap... '__'


and of course, a slice of chocolate and blueberry cheese cake each for dessert



there's nothing more serene than
a sight of your dear birthday husband
enjoying a meal,
specially prepared by you
pulak tu tak habis² puji kata sedap


and that, makes him a happy man!


i love you so much syg
many happy days and years to come
:-)


p/s: my phone's camera menunjukkan tanda² negatif lately ni...gamba makin blur. tak mcm 8MP langsung! tak kuasa lak nk kuarkan slr semata²...haih

Resipi 1 - Kentang goreng kicap

ciqot!
bah...di atas suggestion ko kt fb
buat julung-julung kalinye (eicewah)
aku share resepi pertama kt sini
hehehhe

as I've mentioned before,
my dear hubster kalau boleh, xnk mkn nasi for dinner
so its definitely a (fun) adventure for me to fikir what to serve for dinner

and last night,
i made kentang goreng kicap
senang je nk buat ni
bahan yg nk guna pon simple² je
takde yg pelik

ni i bg resipi utk 2 org makan la eh
nk buat lbih, pepandai korg la gandakan k

2 biji kentang
3 batang cili padi *
3 ulas bwg putih *
ikan bilis 2 cubit (agak²) *
1 biji bawang besar (yg kecik je) dihiris
sebiji telur
kicap
garam

cara dia:
1. kupas kentang, potong kecik (mcm bite size gitu), goreng hingga perang. jgn hangus! and tos kan la yea
2. sementara tunggu kentang digoreng, blend kan bahan² *
3. tumis bahan yg dh blender hingga garing sikit. jgn pakai minyak byk sgt tau...minyak kt kentang pon dh byk...so, kurang² kan la ape yg patut dikurang k...
4. tambah garam secukup rasa
5. masuk bawang yg dihiris. i tak suke layu sgt. so tak payah tunggu lama
6. masuk kentang yg dh digoreng. kacau serba sikit. jgn smpai kentang hancur/benyek lak
7. tambah kicap. kuantiti ikut suka la eh...kalau bole, kasi hitam sikit...
8. finally, masukkan telur yg dh dikacau dulu. then kacau sebati. biar telur masak sikit, then siap!

smlm weols mkn ni dgn roti
wat mcm sandwich gitu
tp tak payah la toast roti tu dulu
nk mkn ngan nasi pon bole la kot

sorry la...smlm masa masak tak terpikir lak nk share kt blog
so takde la amik gambar bagai kan
btw, ni gambar yg i jumpe, ikhsan google
that looked ALMOST mcm yg i masak smlm

yg ni ikan bilis nye tak di blend...good idea jugak kan...goreng dulu ikan bilis tu, mesti krap krup... style ni mkn ngan nasi, mcm best! :)



yg ni ade tambah tempe...tp kalau mkn ngan roti, muak kot. with nasi, sesuai! tambah kacang panjang, lg best kot...


btw, it is myPerson's first time mkn bende ni smlm
and he loved it!
dia suke mkn gitu je
berebut² kitorg smlm

mcm dh tak cukup
tp bile berdua ni
lebih baik tak cukup dari terlebih
kang membazir lak
heheheheh

so kalau korang rajin,
try la eh resipi yg tak seberapa ni...
hehehhehe

and kalau sesape yg ade idea
any dish yg simple
yg tak bukan base dgn nasi, share la eh
kalau malas nk share resepi,
just drop the name/brief description of the dish
kalau rajin, pandai2 la i cari or experiment sendiri.. ;)

Finally

I can come out clean
no more beating around the bush

this shall explain those status 'tergantung' that i left on my fb
a couple of times for the past week
which I've deleted
as I'm afraid that someone might sense the 'something-is-not-right' thingie
I did invi it from them
but still, masih rase insecure, so i deleted it

well, if I could still remember those
it went something like this

1. its my second time doing this. am i ready?
2. rezeki oh rezeki
3. I'm nervous. its my first time. ever!
4. berdebar gile rase....dup dap dup dap. can't wait to vent it out! '__'

ok!
something like that lah
and those status, triggered a 'commotion'
only to one issue

kononnye I'm preggo!
as much as I wish that's the news that I want to blurt out,
its NOT!
at least, not yet laaa
its hard to tell now la kan
as my 'bestfriend' just paid me a visit, exactly on our bertandang reception
so, plus minus, though kami dh kawin sebulan,
its impossible for us to 'bunting pelamin'
so, dream on guys! '___'

ok ok
if I'm not prego, then what?

actually, I've resigned from my current company!
dh 4 tahun ok i keje kt tmpat skg
4 years on my first ever job
with my one and only employer to date!
tu la dia

as status no. 1
it refers to the interviews that i went to
in searching for a new job!

its my second time attending interviews
first was for SPA for the post Pegawai IT
which i got accepted, but then, I turned down the offer
with some reasons, that only I understand
others (read: family) knows, but just couldn't understand

at that moment, I've been with the current company for 3 years to date
oh yeah. keje skrg ni, i tak interview pon
i came here for my internship
and they offered me a job during my final exams
which i instantly accepted! :)


and so, this time around,
I went for three interviews
which I carefully and personally shortlist myself
one in Pasir Gudang, another in Permas Jaya and the other in Kempas
if u're a JBians, u can see the locations that i've picked
one near to in-law, another near to my parents and the one in PJ is somewhere in between
very strategically planned ;)

and, syukur Alhamdulillah
I succeeded on all 3 interviews
all 3 companies offered me the position
which, explains the status no.2
rezeki baru berkahwin :)

and as for status no. 3,
it is my first time ever to resign!
without having decided which company I shall move on to,
I resigned! gile kan?
it just shows how bad I want to move on to another company

nevertheless, to write a resignation letter to a company
that has thought me, and brought me to who i am today,
is definitely not easy!
as much as i love working here,
its time to move on. '__'

all this process, I did it silently,
behind my colleague's back
I did not blurt out any single clue to her
that i'm in the middle of looking for a new job
or attending interviews
or even writing a resignation letter
mind you, this whole process, started a couple of weeks before I got married

and thus, last monday
referring to status no. 4 
I decided to come out clean
and tell her everything
it didn't went quite well
lots of drama and tears involved
I totally understand her feeling as I've went the whole same situation before
when my previous leader resigned

and as for now,
she'd accepted the fact that I'm leaving (I guess)
and now, for this 2 months, I'll be even more busy
hope this transition period will go smoothly
and end soon!

to my new company,
please be good to me
and I definitely hope for the best
for my future
and of course, my dear family! :)

Update on Our 'so-called-Casa'

this was last week


kami berpiknik di rumah sendiri
ye lah...umah kosong lagi masa tu...
maka nye, makan atas lantai je laaa
beralaskan kadbod
kalau ayah tgk ni, kompem dia terus belikan dining table. as if!!!!
pffffftttttttt..hihihi


masa tu ari isnin
kt tmn rinting ade pasar malam,
so tapau tahu bakar, kuih bakar and drinks
singgah umah sewa jap, nk kemas serba sikit

keje i, ni

pasang langsir
sliding door sebesar alam
bende ni la yg paling penting sebelom kite 'isi' kan umah
kang org sekodeng, mana kite tau kan kan kan

and him, dh name lelaki kan...
tang ni la yg paling dia pentingkan...


ni pon dh menggeletis, takde astro
it just happens that masa ni laaa astro konon nk update system
so though dh register, we have to wait myb for another 1-2 months for the installation
lambat gils...takpe...
dok jb ni, cenel spore pon dh cukup best!



btw, the main purpose of this entry
is nk post yg fridge and washing machine dh sampai!!!!


woottt wooottttt
pegh...tu pon nk kecoh kan?
mcm laaa dpt TV LED 80"...(eh..ade ke? ;p)


berhempas pulas kami memasang berdua smlm
we bought em in JJ
the thing is, diorg hanya deliver, tak tolong pasang
tu la masalahnye
i mmg dh tau benda ni
tp rezeki kami, someone gave us JJ voucher as wedding gift
so we decided to use it for bende besar mcm ni
snang nk igt... :)

advice to others,
personally, i rase, benda sebesar and mahal mcm ni,
elakkan la beli kt pasaraya besar
better beli kt kedai2 lektrik biasa je
sebab dpt tawar harge
plus, untung², dpt free gift
bukan takat downy and dynamo, silap², rice cooker pon bole dpt tau...
nnt kalau ade prob pon, snang nk deal kalao dgn kedai biasa
kalau dh pasaraya gitu, asek berpassing² je la nanti
'___'

plus, korg mungkin tak akan kene drama
"esok baru kami hantar, driver balik awal lah kak"
bile dh esok, "esok baru dpt hantar, driver tak nak hantar mlm"
stresssss haku!!!!
len kali, ckp je "tahun depan baru kami hantar kak"..  "__"

and after dekat sejam,
berpeluh ketiak berdua,
terhasillah ini



my favourite space in the house
biasa la...perempuan kannn
bak kata org² tua,
perempuan, blaja tinggi mana pon, akhirnye, ke dapur jua.... '__'


tp masih belom beli cabinet/meja
tgk laaa...rice cooker and thermos pot, masih atas lantai


nampak kan dapur gas kt tepi kanan tu....
tu bukan hiasan je tauuuu
sbb kan kitorg ni jakun gile,
dan dan tu gak try machine
basuh 1 set of bedsheet

so sementara nk tunggu siap basuh,
kite panaskan la enjin stove
presenting, our first home-cooked meal



maggie mamee Xtra pedas letak telur and hotdog
Ya Allah...its the best meal we've ever had....
sumpah sedap gileeeee
hihihhihhihi.... ;)

ciqot...ko igt tak periuk tu...
maybe sbb periuk tu kot, yg maggi aku sedap...
hehehehehe
