genting highlands.. :)

glad that i decided to join the first trip for MB's FD this year. when the FD committee first announced... genting highlands... the expression was like.. 'laaa.. genting highlands?' *sigh*.. the fact is that, if it was not a sponsored trip.. i dont know when will i take joelis there. :)

we had a great time... despite me being busy with the rehearsal and sound check and stuff.. thanks to my cuz andy... :) he helped out in baby sitting joelis. first nite when we arrived, we went for the 'fly show' it was cool! good acrobats and dance.. lisa enjoyed the show very much and she got really excited! heheh :D joey was a bit cranky that nite... probably he was tired through out the journey. we had supper at kenny rogers.. took some pictures and headed to our room.. we had a small misunderstanding that nite.. joelis and i.. and later before going to bed, lisa put a note 'i m sorry' on the pillow... and i thot that was so sweet. :)

I guess everyone was tired… and cranky.. me included. to make things worst, my hp rang at 120am…and one stupid guy called just to say, ‘i nak berkenalan dgn u boleh?’ what the %$#@... tension betul… pepagi buta!!! and biasa lah after that i could not sleep. andy was still watching the tv. about half hour later, MB smsed. and his sms was long-awaited. hehehe and we ended up smsing till 330am…

second day, got up early to catch the breakfast... well, nothing fancy.. the food was quite tasteless. went straight to the ballroom, coz we were supposed to have the rehearsal. somehow we got stuck there for a while. we then decided to cover the indoor theme park first.. played most of the rides that joelis can... but kesian joey... he is still not tall enough for some of the rides. :) he was on the bumper car all by himself.. he enjoyed it anyway.. lisa and andy went in the adult bumper car.. and i accompanied joey out of the ring. we had lunch later at burger king… and i went back to the ballroom for sound check while andy and joelis went back to the room. it was 130pm… was supposed to be done by 230pm…but… i was there till 430pm… joelis were already restless.. they came to the ballroom and i told andy to take them to the ‘ripley’s believe it or not’.. at least until I am done… and looks like 15 mins after they left, i am done with the sound check… by 530pm we already had to go back and get ready… for the grand dinner… it was a success.. i was satisfied.. heheh:D after many years singing with the band… that night was the first night that i did not look at the lyrics! hahhaha:D stayed till dinner ends.

third day was free for joelis… no restrictions. we marked the rides/games that we wanted to play on the pamphlet, makes it easier for us… we do not waste much time.. i have not been on roller coaster for so long.. after giving birth to joey… and that day… lisa made me!! gosh… but hey…not bad at all… it was lisa’s 1st ride on roller coaster! and i tried the spinner too!! crazy okay! joey cried all the way and i felt helpless… i cant do anything…kesian dia.. and the last roller coaster (the only one that joey can ride) was cancelled due to the rain… lagi la sedih joey… hmmm tak apa la.. next time we had late lunch at kenny rogers again… and drove down at 530pm… reached home at 630pm. and later went out with james for teh tarik… hehehe..:D

check out the photos

time to celebrate!

joelis just finished their 1st term exam... both got straight A's... although some may not be a perfect A... :) i am proud of both of them! saw the glow in joey's eyes when he got 100 for his english paper.. hehehe:D and i told him... 'can u imagine how happier you would be if you got 100 for more papers?' ;) and he gave me this cheeky grin.. i checked his bahasa melayu paper and found one of the mistake... basikal - mengayuh.. but he answered 'memandu' instead... and we (lisa and i) started to tease him.. and dengan selamba he answered me, 'ma, i know its cycling... but i dont know what its called in bahasa..' hehe.. gosh.. who's fault is that now..? errrkk.. both of them are already giving me hints... 'mama nak bagi kitorang hadiah apa? or.. i can have a birthday party on my birthday right?' or.. blah.. blah.. blah.. :)

we are going away for the weekend. joelis are not feeling well... i just hope it wont spoil their mood to enjoy the rides and stuff. i have been really tight up... with work, dance practise... jamming session.. really looking forward for an exciting weekend! i will update more when we come back.. and of course..hopefully with lots of photos to share! stay tuned people... ;)

oh yes... something sweet just happened... :) it definitely has made my week different... exciting.. and its like, looking forward for the next day.. ;) hmmm... :)

just do it!

have you ever felt that you wish you can do all the challenging stuff that you never thought that you can do it/them? :) i felt that... and i know/feel that somehow, life is too short to be wasted on unproductive things... worrying about unneccessary stuffs... etc...
however, it is still nice to still think of the sweet memories that you might have with someone. :) although that someone have made you cried... for crushing your heart and hope. it's that short moment of time that you have had with them managed to make you happy...
i am about to try something which i have been wanting to do, but i am scared. so, now i have to overcome my fear first.. right? anyway... if i succeed, i will announce it here... wakakaka.. aahhh sungguh teruja! hehehehe...
below are the things / activities that i never thot of doing but have done.. or in my plans... ahah!

> cat walk on stage - done it in 2005, managed to get into the semi-final, with lisa.
> snorkelling - done it in 2006. had this problem of not wanting to share the equipment. so, i bought my own snorkelling gear and i did it! :)
> mountain climbing - this is something that is quite far to reach.. heh..heh..
> diving - hmmm... thinking hard about it.. :)

well anyway, our office's family day is near... excited to go with joelis. its gonna be in genting highlands this time. okay la... joey has been asking me when i can bring him there, so since this is gonna be a free trip. ayuh je lah! the theme for the dinner this year is 'denim'. i went for shopping yesterday with james. frust giler... saw the jeans that i wanted, but i couldnt fit into them!! OMG!! felt like crying... ahhh... james had his time teasing me... chiss... tak per.. so, in the end, i did not buy any new pants/jeans... but i bought 2 tops.. okay la.. i can just modify the jeans that i have at home... huk.. huk.. huk... :( tension sih!

i managed to watch the repeat concert for AF5 last sunday... can u believe that i cried watching aizat sang that song... gosh... jiwang karat tul. but he did a good job during the concert. honestly i thot he wont be able to sing the song but he did it...!! and milla was sweet and wonderful. :) she did well with that 'drama' song...

isu terkini - anak yg hilang

everyday i will be waiting for the newspaper just to read the updates on the latest isu of 'yin'. whatever i am writing is on how i feel... and i am not on anybody's side. coz, penat lah asyik nak salahkan orang lain tapi tak fikir salah diri sendiri. if you ask my personal opinion, i would first blame the father. dah tau, your son is hyper, kenapa 'bijak' and left the son alone while in the changing room. i remembered last time when joey was a few months old. we brought both joelis for shopping in JJ. we had something to tie lisa's hand to the stroller, and lisa was 3 years old at that time. she was not a hyperactive kid, but since at that time she will wonder around, it is safer to have our daughter with us. people... well, knowing malaysians.. stared at us.. sure depa fikir, apa punya parents pi ikat anak lagu tu... well... its better that we ikat, than hilang... tak ke? joelis' daddy was embarrassed of course...but knowing me, i dont care what other people would think. susah tau nak beranak! and i remembered last year when joelis' daddy brought them out and left them at kinokuniya all by themselves and he queued to get the tickets for a movie!!! there wont be any next time for this to happen!! see how fathers think... gosh... alhamdulillah nothing happened. so fathers out there...children are never to be left alone!!!
back to 'yin'. my opinion, biar lah polis selesaikan their investigation. if i were in yin's parents' situation, i would leave it to the police. it is not them being ungrateful but, sebagai orang luar, when i read their (the couple who kept yin), keterangan, it looks like ada yang tak betul. i received an email today, tak tau siapa yang tulis, tapi dok ngata2 parents yin being ungrateful. secara mata kasar boleh la nampak macam tu, but what if betul mereka ada niat tak baik?? secara logik la, kalau dah jumpa kanak2, pass aje lah kat balai polis. that is always the best thing to do... i dont see the logic of keeping a lost child when you know you are keluarga miskin, and dah ada 5 existing kids... hemmm i may sound harsh saying this myself... but kalau betul ada naluri keibuan, we would always think what is best for the child. hmmm orang2 kat luar tu, kalau nak bela sangat the couple pun, tunggu la police habiskan their investigation dulu..
apa-apa pun.... parents out there, kalau nak try baju kat shopping mall, bawak masuk anak sekali dalam changing room kalau tak de sape yang tengokkan anak tu...!!
hishh...lotih mokcik bebel hah!!! :D

happy birthday!

happy birthday to my elder sister and her husband... my younger sister organised a nice family dinner at grand season hotel. i have never been to that hotel, but the food is delicious! i dont really eat that much but, it was different that night. i tried almost most of the spread. the grilled lamb (my fav) was superb! the chef is my younger sister's student. and he made a special birthday cake for us... sedapnya chocolate cake... not too sweet...and it's moist.

he'eh rasa macam short essay kat sekolah je kan.. hehehe... more pictures here


before i proceed writing on events during the weekend, sad news again for james. less than 3 months after his father passed away.. his younger brother passed away yesterday at around 4pm at putrajaya hospital. al-fatihah...

did i marry the right person?

i got this in my inbox just after lunch.. this is a very good article. read it. those who are still single may learn something from here.... those who are already married may take it as a guideline to improve your marriage....


During one of our seminars, a woman asked a common question. She said, "How do I know if I married the right person?" I noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so I said, "It depends. Is that your husband?" In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?"
Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind.
Here's the answer.
EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love with your spouse wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love... Because it's happening TO YOU.
People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Think about the imagery of that __expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.
Falling is love is easy. It's a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria of love fades. It's the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts.
The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.
At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking, "Did I marry the right person?" And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when marriages breakdown. People blame their spouse for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage for fulfillment.
Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most obvious. But sometimes people turn to work,a hobby, a friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances.
But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it. I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this): THE KEY TO SUCCEEDING IN MARRIAGE IS NOT FINDING THE RIGHT PERSON; IT'S LEARNING TO LOVE THE PERSON YOU FOUND.
SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. It'll NEVER just happen to you. You can't "find" LASTING love. You have to "make" it day in and day out. That's why we have the __expression "the labor of love."
Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make your marriage work.
Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your spouse) to succeed with your marriage.
Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger. It's a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are can "make" love.
Love in marriage is indeed a "decision"... Not just a feeling .

sizzzlliingg hot!!! F1 experience..

Hey..hey…hey… i can still feel the heat! went to watch F1 for the first time! yeup.. i finally did it.. went to sepang on saturday and sunday. i loved it.. very very much!! and still feel excited… hehehehe.. been wanting to update my blog right after the race, but time was not on my side..again.. been really busy.. well anyway..this is how it got started.. i am/was not an F1 fan… used to dislike the season. back to memory lane, Cam used to watch tv in the room and i hated the sound of the cars… wiiiiuungggggggg.. and uurrgghh..hated it… but somehow, many months back before the F1 season started, i just had the thot.. and i told james. if he gets tickets this year, i wanna go..i just want to have the least once.. i am 34 and i wanna go to F1! unfortunately, when he finally got the tickets, he did not ask me to go with him… so, i was kinda sad... tried to rub it off my mind..
it so happened i had lunch with CM few days before the weekend. and she had tickets with her… better seats!! and the best thing ever… she asked, ‘u wanna go?’ fuhhh… i din know what to say… or feel.. i was like… i am actually going now?? started to feel nervous the nite before. what if it is really hot..? what if i cant stand the loud roaring engine? but.. i cant back off now… CM is gonna kill me!! her terms were, if i wanna go, i must go saturday and sunday :D and you know what…? saturday came.. i was glad that i went! CM and i are F1 virgin.. wakakaka! Lol! many thanks to CM’s hubby for the VIP treatment that we received. CM’s driver brought us to kompleks bunga raya, and we took the shuttle right to the mall. and just love the red tshirts!! so, on saturday, 4 of us decided to wear red on sunday. not that i am a fan of Ferrari… i just love the tshirt and the bright red color.. hehehe..bought the red sleeveless. CM bought one too! it was really hot…luckily it rained for a while.. i had the ear plugs on but the sound was still too loud for me to handle. i talked to CM about buying the headphones… and we got them on sunday! i enjoyed myself very much. and... good looking guys…all around..!! and oh ya…guess what..? we, RS, her bf and one of the coll (i think his name is John) queued to buy some drinks… and suddenly there’s one mat salleh came and ask if John can snap a picture for him… and he told John, ‘i want to take a picture with her!’ i went.. eerrrkk.. hehehe… so, apa lagi, i said, ‘ok!’ and he said thanks after that and blah.. hahaha the funny thing is, i don’t even remember how he looked like, but i know he was tall. hishh…rugi betul! hahaha john was still stunned. he said to me, ‘wow.. you must be flattered’ i giggled and said, ‘haha…it must be the fan that i was using!’ wokayy… enough berangan… lets talk about the cars!! err.. cars? what is there to talk about? i don’t even know the terms that they used. when i was seated there… i looked at the cars..i was my head was thinking… whoa… i just couldn’t write the right words to express my feelings about being there! when i saw them putting on the tyres…and saw it go… i was like…‘ternganga!!’ well, okay.. i admit, i did fall asleep during the race..kekekeke.. dozed off for a few minutes, until CM’s hubby threw something to me and woke me up! :D and watched the race till the end… went back with james and his gang on sunday, had early dinner at hartamas and james drove me home, reached home just after 8pm..or was it before 8pm? Before 10pm…i was already on dreamland…zzzzz feeling... satisfied! very.. !!
now, i understand how or why people love F1… well, maybe, i have not/don’t fully understand F1 like they do…but i am starting to understand more… and next year..if i get free ticket again, i will definitely go… with the same crowd, i hope. :D just one thing…i should have taken lots more photos! anyway, enjoy these photos… :)
