Weekend lepas

My brothers and sisters were at my house on Saturday, together with my father. It’s a pleasure to have them around.

I cooked butter rice and then forget the fact that I have no evaporated milk to complete the rice, so what I did was mix my Anlene to the rice haha. Lucky me it turned out great, nobody noticed. I think they didn’t even know what’s inside the perfectly cooked (ehem) rice except for me and my SIL.

On the other hand, my brother was thinking of having Kenny Rogers chicken but I guessed it’s not our luck because the branch in Alamanda was closed for renovation, so I went to get some Ayam Golek from a stall near Gate 1. It tasted great and quite cheap, RM18 for whole chicken. I thought it was RM20 last year. :)

Then, I prepared some sambal eggs which Father loves so much, it’s such a delightful thing to see him eat that. :)

Then, my brother Firdaus and his wife brought some chicken curry to complete our dishes that day. Anyway, I did prepare a pot of chicken curry and since my brother’s mother in law had prepared curry too, I thought of keeping my curry for sahur. :) Sebenarnya I risau kari I tak sesedap yang mak mentua Firdaus masak. My curry turned out great and very thick, the way I love it :)

And, no photo of the day because I was too rushing in doing all cooking. Can’t believe I prepared all the dishes! :) Proud of myself!

Alhamdulillah, for having the chance to be with my family. Can’t wait to come home for raya :)

P.s ; Need to remind my brother to book some chicken for raya usage.

This year the Kelab at the office planned a Buka Puasa with Anak2 Yatim and they had displayed 46 stickers of wishes from the kids. Our association decided to contribute for three kids and after approval on how much we could spend, I volunteered to be the shopper. Ehem, it’s not a task at all. I like shopping, and finding the best deal!

I hope they liked what we’ve (I’ve) purchased, (even curated) for them. But, it’s  quite a challenging task to buy clothes based on their age, not the exact size, but I really hope that their wishes are fulfilled.

Can’t wait to see them for buka puasa this Friday, but most of all, can’t wait to be home for buka puasa tomorrow, and the day after, and on weekend, when my family planned to be here for the long weekend.

InsyaAllah.

Sempurna Waktu by Ir Radzi

Sempurna waktu
Ada dirimu
Ada cintamu

Apakah kita
Akan bersama
Harus bersama

Semua indah
Kan bererti
Rasa hati lagi

Sungguh ku milikmu
Kau milikku
Takkan ada
Yang pisahkan kita

Ku mampu bertahan
Cepat atau lambat
Mampu bertahan
Sempurna oleh waktu

Sungguh ku melikmu
Kau juga milikku
Sempurna

Semua indah
Kan bererti
Rasa hati lagi

Sungguh ku milikmu
Kau milikku
Takkan ada
Yang pisahkan kita

Ku mampu bertahan
Cepat atau lambat
Mampu bertahan
Sempurna oleh waktu

Takkan aku tinggalkan dirimu

Ku mampu bertahan
Cepat atau lambat
Mampu bertahan
Sempurna oleh waktu
Sempurna oleh waktu

Not so glam, not so rich, not so smart, but it’s okay

Sebab Tuhan dah jadikan semua orang itu terbaik, terpulang pada diri sendiri on how to make the best of what we have now.

I selalu juga ingatkan diri, tapi memang mudah terlupa. Tak semua yang kita nak tu baik untuk kita (obviously, aishah). Tapi, susah kan. Temptation is everywhere.

Semoga kita sentiasa bersyukur. Amin.

It’s not my day, maybe

I woke up to the rain, thanking Allah for the rain, as I don’t have to water the plant, this could save me few more minutes on the bed, yup, wasted. I know.

I planned to meet a friend for breakfast but he got stuck up with job whatevs, when I was around his office I met another senior officer, met him before at KLIA during one of my duty there. So I said hi to him, he looked at me and asked me where I am working now, for sure I knew he didn’t remember me, but he’s older, he got to see lot of faces everyday so it’s fair, plus, I always memorize people well.

And then his memory hit him, and he said… “you’re so good.. .still remembers me” of course I do. I remember him asking one of his staff to take me to dinner after seeing me gone pale resulting of full day standing, and having no enough time to eat decently. That was almost two years ago.

But hey, that was not the main story. The story was, I couldn’t get to do the first appointment, which was to have breakfast with my friend. So instead I went to my favourite stall to tapau some rice and chicken curry which made my day.

When I reached the office, discussed few things with my assistant, then it occurred to me that she’s done something without me approving it. Well, the damage was done when I was in KK on Monday. Nothing much I could say. Just move on from whatever’s done.

Then, my monthly claim was returned due to some documents missing, which actually were there but the finance somehow couldn’t find it because I printed in on the other side, print depan belakang to save paper, no, no that was not encouraged here, I know. Weird. I managed to blame some people at my office (not the finance) but I guess they understand me enough to not take my words to the heart. Hopefully.

Then… this day still not finished.

I wonder and somehow think that this might be a dugaan pre Ramadan. Nak solat terawih kat mana malam ni? Nak sahur sorang? huuaaa

Selamat berpuasa semua. :)

Kadang-kadang tak perlu minta maaf pun

Saya nak bising pasal etika pemakaian JPJ tu. Dah terang-terang kalau ada urusan rasmi kerajaan, perlu ada etika pemakaian. Pertama, untuk menghormati urusan rasmi tu, kedua untuk menghormati tempat tu dan ketiga, menghormati perasaan dan pandangan orang lain. Mungkin orang ramai tak sedar yang sesuatu etika tu dibuat untuk keselesaan orang ramai. Orang ramai, orang ramai. Mungkin ada yang tak selesa, tapi tak ramai. So, majority wins.

Kisah seorang makcik yang upload gambar beliau disuruh pakai sarung oleh pegawai JPJ di satu cawangan JPJ.

i) Makcik tu sendiri upload with the title… “what this country has became?” to me, that was insulting enough, for not believing in your own country, but hey, you were there to do the official stuff, for your car you pandai pula ikut peraturan. EH tak, dia kata… semuanya adalah pained to her, sudahlah kena menapak ke pejabat JPJ… oh, macam dia sorang je yang kena pergi JPJ tu untuk selesaikan urusan. Orang lain, JPJ datang ke rumah… agaknya…

ii) Dia diberi sarung, yang universal, ada yang kata to prepare skirt whatever, susahlah bab sizing nanti, tak muat di pinggang ke di punggung ke etc. Memang tak cantik pakai sarung kalau tak reti tapi bukannya tak dibagi masa untuk pakai elok elok (saya rasa lah)… dan dah tahu tak cantik “like a bag” buat apa upload? Buat apa upload, sebab nak kenakan JPJ???? Kan? sebab menyusahkan auntie kan? Auntie tak tahu ke tindakan auntie tu menyusahkan dan menyesakkan orang.

iii) JPJ keluarkan kenyataan maaf. yang bagi saya macam mengarut. Semua tu dah ada dalam etika pemakaian. Kalau tak patuh memang patut kena denda (denda di sini kena pakai sarung).

iv) Saya tak faham kenapa jadi macam ni, sebab saya dah diasuh melalui pemerhatian saya yang berurusan dengan kerajaan banyak kali juga, sejak kecil saya memang perhatikan semua etika pemakaian tu. Jadi saya tak faham kenapa makcik ni boleh tak aware dengan peraturan ni. Peraturan ni dah ada sekian lama… So saya sangat tak puas hati dengan pernyataan makcik “what this country has became” mungkin makcik dah lama duduk di luar negara agaknya.

Ada kawan mesej saya dan tanya kenapa saya emo bila bab ni… Saya emo sebab

i) orang yang buat kerja (pegawai JPJ yang bagi kain) seperti tak dihargai oleh boss sendiri,

ii) JPJ sendiri tak tetap pendirian (keluarkan pernyataan maaf)

iii) kenapa orang ramai sekarang ni tak hormat public place, tak rasa nak berpakaian kemas untuk berurusan dengan kerajaan… buat macam nak gi interview, please?

iv) kenapa kalau dress code lain, boleh je dipatuhi?

Okay that would be all.

Terima kasih.
