Rindu Bayangan

Sometimes you wonder... how much you miss the past?
Sometimes you forget about the past - when you are drowned in time...
Sometimes you remember them, especially when something flicked your mind...
This picture tells a tale of two person in love i.e. my mom and dad (middle and right seated)
It was taken in UK after their wedding registration.
Sitting on the left was my late grand-uncle...

A part of my life was written here... my grandparents' house - in Kelantan. This was taken when we first moved in, from the Gudang house (a name we called the previous house).

Oh, Angin... sampaikanlah lagu ku padanya... yang sedih pilu...

My late beloved grandfather... minum kopi time. He looked like a chinese man... wonder what made he beamed with smile?

Me - four beradik... guess which one is me??

Again... my late grandfather - cant help but to put this pic... he was a good looking lad. no wonder my grandma fell for him. and no wonder all his children are good looking too... (also grandchildren!)

Bila ku kenang ku renung gambar wajahmu...
Kisah yang lalu tak akan berulang lagi
lupakan saja cerita lama... usah dirayu pada yang tak sudi...

an old place - the Gudang. Later converted into a place we called home... i was raised there with late grandpa and grandma. Was spoilt cos being the only child, i got almost anything... but Abah was strictest with me... no nonsense... but in his strictness, i could sense his love and care and concern... he taught me a lot.

Family pictures taken almost every year, at the famous MEDO studio. Father wasnt there... he already went to UK. My grandparents (see how beautiful my grandma was) and two aunties and three uncles... I was closer to my youngest uncle, grew up with him - he irritated me and i irritated him but we had each others back. FYI, he had a big collection of miniature planes... which i misplaced all of them... sorry! he taught me how to play combat and how to make fireworks from kabait!

Berputar-putar membelitkan kata-kata...hanya linangan air mata yang menitis

pada bayangan di angin lalu... membisikkan kata rindu bayangan

a'che spa - secretaries' week quality hotel

22 April 2008 - Matrade
Artist - Kris Dayanti before event... we got this table situated near the VIP registration
yup, we were the first one to arrive!

all ready to go (can see arin sitting there... khusyuk bangats)

we have 2 buntings - one of a'che spa and the other of Tanamera (pinjam from Tanamera)

special for that day - purchase more than rm50, you'll get these cute gifts (a body moisturiser and body scrub) - tempting eh?

23 April 2008 - 7th Floor, SOGO

Artists - Noryn Aziz & Jamal Abdillah

Arin behind the booth (tengah marah Zureen ke?)
Heheheh... actually kelamkabut carik change - nampak kotak pitih tuh?

Phew... 2 days of outside event - very tiring! but satisfying. We managed to meet Noryn Aziz but not Jamal Abdillah... sigh...
Arin (again) all ready to leave the place with the trolley she managed to hijacked from SOGO supermarket... hehehhe

We got the door gift from Quality Hotel! Nicely packed in this goodie bag!
What's inside?
hmmm... banyak jugak la - bio-essence products, little trees, aura seri and vouchers
oppsss... yg cun from a'che spa, of course! cash voucher RM20 (eh, ok sangat tu cos our pricing is lower than others in our area - promote jgn tak promote)

CAKK!! Saje interframe - Zureen texting belakang tu... tunggu cik abang kot!

Although the sales was lower than what we expected... but we found out later from Tanamera that it was great outcome - we did a great job! So, we feel proud of ourselves. Fair to say that good teamwork plays a great role here...

Arin, job well done! Very professional - Memang tak sesia aku amik ko heheheh...

Zureen, with the minimum payment we could only afford to pay you... you did swell! thank you soooooooooo much!

Last 3 years, i joined my company trip to Bali and we found a seafood restaurant which brought back familiar thoughts to me and the rest of the girls... Bubba Gump Shrimp & Co!

Ring any bell to you?

Yup, it was Forrest Gump pact with his friend Bubba to open a shrimp business - and based from that idea, they opened up this restaurant cum souvenir shop! It was very interesting and fun and unique. But at that time, we didnt dine there cos we were uncertain of the halal status, nonetheless it never stop us from buying some souvenirs... heheheh

I got myself a t-shirt for my hubby - a shrimp riding a harley! and a small mini tee for baby hazeem which written as baby shrimp - bali!

Why I am writing about this now?

I was reading the newspaper when i saw an article on this restaurant and they just opened their branch in Malaysia!!! Finally....

This is how the logo looks like... cute eh!
This is one of the shrimp menu...

Should any of you wonders where the heck is this place? They are in The Curve, Damansara...

suddenly i got the urge of having seafood... hmmm! Funny how a movie influenced your tastebud..!

cinta... kini kau datang jua
melanda dua insan
cinta... sungguh indah c'ritamu
dunia terasa hampa
bila kau tiada
hati-hati cinta juga bisa membawa duka...
batas lingkaran yang slalu bisa membawa suka...
demi dikau... yang kusayang
demi kasih ... yang kudamba selalu
tiada seindah kasih sayang
cinta suci lagu syahdu merdu
tiada seindah kharismanya
pabila kau tahu
cinta itu suci
broery marantika & dewi yull

carik pasal

i think after this malicious act of me putting my friends pics (taking into consideration whether i look nice or not and dont care what they look like :)) - i foresee more old pics are coming out of closets after this. thanks to makcheq for initiating this event! :D
this was taken in Klebang, Melaka. Occasion? Tak ingat la... a birthday celebration. I wonder how did i manage to escape and attend this makan2?? Maybe becos i went with koyong? (those who knew me back then... will understand this)

Err.... i think this was 5Science1. Muka2 samseng kononnya... heheheh. But dont be surprised... some of us were actually bullies!

Sapa lak nih? Hehehe... saja carik pasal byk penjuru. These are close friends of my hubby and myself as well. Guys, if you are reading this - you know who you are :D

ANGEL . aerosmith

Im alone yeah

I dont know if I can face the night

Im in tears and the cryin that I do is for you

I want your love lets break the wall between us

Dont make it tough, Ill put away my pride

Enoughs enough, Ive suffered and Ive seen the light

Youre my angel come and save me tonight

Youre my angel come and make it alright

Youre my angel come and save me tonight

Dont know what Im gonna do about thins feeling inside

Yes, its true loneliness took me for a ride

Without your love, Im nothin but a beggar

Without your love, a dog without a bone

What can I do, Im sleepin in this bed alone

Youre the reason I liveYoure the reason I die

Youre the reason I give when I break down and cry

Dont need no reason why

Baby, baby, baby
during my college days, my husband gave this song to me... i love the melody.
when i listened to it again, felt like yesterday had come to visit us

more movies for me!

We Own The NightOne of my fav actors - Mark Wahlberg and not to forget my Johnny Cash, that is Joaquin Phoenix. As any other Mark's movies, it involves witty lines and foul languages, blood, and ever so refreshing cunning plots.
Acted by Keri Russell, it's all about pies... choc pie, blueberry pie, meat pie, and many other pies that will make you hungry. Sweet but kinda slow.
Mad Money

Who would not go mad over $$$$? Same goes with Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah and Katie Holmes... funny movie and cleverly planned strategies to 'take' $$$ from Reserve Bank. sapa x gile tengok duit uiiii....

i got these from a friend...

Finally , the guys' side of the story. ( I must admit, it's pretty good.) We always hear ' the rules 'From the female side.

Now here are the rules from the male side.
These are our rules!Please note.. these are all numbered '1 ' ON PURPOSE!

1. Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat.You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.We need it up, you need it down.You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.Let it be.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work!Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do.Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become Null and void after 7 Days.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are.Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

1. You can either ask us to do something Or tell us how you want it done. Not both.If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials..

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say 'nothing,' We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really .

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball or golf.
1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

1. Thank you for reading this.Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

Pass this to as many men as you can -to give them a laugh.

Pass this to as many women as you can -
to give them a bigger laugh.

Formula 1

dated 23 March 2008
FI, Sepang, Malaysia
a world craze over a number of cars going around in circles
frankly... me don't quite understand why people are so fascinated about F1
my hubby likes it but i only saw him watched the start off and finishing
...hmm... in between? he was busy with hazeem or doing housechores
but of course, you cant understand others passion like they may not understand yours
fair enough? yup

ok - back to the pics
hubby got a free ticket, yes ... A ticket, so he went alone
ehheheh... he got a seat at diamond area
he made a new friend with a 18 year old boy
luckily there were only a few pictures on skimpfully dressed petronas girls (god knows what were their purpose??) and A LOT of pictures on cars and pitstops and all
(also meant that my husband is like any other normal guys... who love cars and 'no-brain' accessories attached to or lingered near it)

he hesitated to go initially
i told him it would be stupid not to go and also he deserves a break after months of stupid audit he had in office
so he went and he totally enjoyed it

wonder when would be my enjoyment pulak... maybe after this?

anak aku

anak aku nama dia amir hazeem bin hairuzzamil
hidup aku lepas dapat dia bertambah kelamkabut
kucar kacir
havoc giler
tapi... tanpa dia hidup aku tak best
balik umah lepas jaga spa... penat - sekali dia buat lawak perghhh hilang penat aku
(anak aku ni pak lawak) hasil ajaran MR BEAN
suka menyanyi (sometimes lebih kepada melalak) lagu fav dia Gemuruh FAIZAL TAHIR
fav toys dia bob the builder (basically any construction toys) & thomas & friends
so, pakcik2 aku panggil dia BOB
kengkadang dia layan spongebob pastu main flute ngan idung dia (mcm spongebob)
dia pandai speaking omputeh - kengkadang aku pun terkejut ngan vocab dia
mana dia belajar - MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE
dia suka layan atuk dia (bapak mertua aku) - kasik org tua tu rokok, layan dia buat repair around the house (mcm HANDY MANNY)
lagi satu dia suka FIREMAN SAM
ini semua hasil dari ASTRO la
citer fav dia TAXI - queen latifah tuh
hmmm... dia suka makan tempe, tapi dia sememangnya putih (tak mcm khir toyo)
sebelum makan dia baca doa makan, siap ada lagu tuh

hazeem ni quite sensitive... kalau aku menangis ke, dia dtg dekat pastu lap airmata aku

itu la anak aku
harapan aku dia membesar jadi org berjaya - dunia akhirat
dia headstrong, so i hope dia jadi a good charismatic leader
sihat tubuh badan dan mempunyai kehidupan yg diberkati Allah
(sapa taknak anak dia berjaya ye tak?)

wajah baru

nice kan... but still trying to understand how to change templates and all related issues since i am IT illiterate :)


i have been watching movies... catching up with what i have missed after few months
so, this month will be my movie month!

let's start with this one...
THE HUNTING PARTY - Richard Gere & Terrence Howard (awww... love him!)
Ganas but sarcastically funny... Loooooove it!

what about this one?
AUGUST RUSH - Freddie Highmore (charlie & choc factory), Keri Russell (the waitress), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (match point), Robin Williams (sapa x kenal dia...?) & Terrence Howard (perghh..... aku suka...)
about a boy looking for their parents thru music. entertaining! musically entertaining...

recommending both movies!

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

saw a competition in HerWorld mag about free tickets for a new movie, DEFINITELY, MAYBE - a romantic comedy

seeing it as a good opportunity, due to several reasons...

1. i am broke but still want entertainment

2. it has been ages since the last movie i watched with hubby - apa lagi romantic movie... :-)

3. i am broke but still want entertainment

good reasons, eh?
yup... so i sent 2 smses to that mentioned number.
lucky me... i got 4 free tickets!!

on 9 April 2008, at Cineplex Dsara, movie starts at 930pm. It was free seating so we were like little chldren trying to grab the best seats - so we thought...

it was a great movie... something different but yes, for those non-romantically attached to their feelings - may not like it. but i LOVE it.

my husband liked it... (phew...!)
highly recommended. go. watch it.
my view... after that movie...

if you want somebody... or something to be a part of ur life... dont hesitate to show it
but of course, sometimes u have doubts... sometimes u have hunches
sometimes u think u are sure, and sometimes u are lost
well, too bad... we are just human... and to err is human
that's why under circumstances where u cant even weigh a situation - u always seek Allah's help

in that movie, eventually he managed to get what he wants but only after he lost it
but in real life, how many of us manage to get back what we've lost...?
something to think about, isnt it...

but do not get me wrong... it is good to always have a go at anything that we want, as long as it is rightfully yours to have and do not cross any border - be it religious or law :D

anyhow... good movie - go and watch it.

my baby

I consider my spa as my baby in business...

Those who know me knows where I came from - as a child, I wanted to be an architect (i can draw :D). As I grew up, my parents drilled my mind to be an engineer (cos they are engineers and also I was good in maths). After SPM, I enrolled in estate management course right after I completed my ALevels.

After graduated, I worked in an international property consultancy firm with a starting salary that was not very international @RM1,000 per month! I was working like a dog initially... but when i couldnt see a bright 'light' at the end of that tunnel - i hold firmly to a principle "when you pay peanuts, you'll get monkeys".. ehemm... i was one of the monkeys. one of the rebels.

ok, how did i get my baby?

my spa...

after resigning from being a monkeys - i looked into alternative health (since it also saved my husband from a disease) and had my trainings and certification from singapore in energy health. combined with my interest in interior and designing passion, i decided to open up my spa - a'che spa!

my life in business - some may see as a leisure...

some may see the darker side of it...

yup, i am more satisfied now since i can design, i can create and i can control

what i cannot control is my income...

another thing i cant control is my loan - yes, for those who knew my story - i did not get my loan yet! it has been almost 4 months (they promise it will take about a month or more... but i never expect mths!)

why do i need the $$$$?

i need to do promotion.... for my spa to increase the bloody sale!

muntah darah!

to a certain extent, i was ashamed at myself cos I had to borrow $$$ from family members.

but i saw the potential of the spa....

i know it will go far...

and to make me smile, in every dark clouds there is a silver lining (betul kan?)

this month, we will be in matrade for secretaries' week luncheon... will be another big step for us... insyaallah...

we meet again

He looked so young. Very healthy. I was amazed...

Wearing his old specs, with thick black frame. His hair neatly combed with hair cream - brylcream or something-10.
We were cruising on his old mercedes and he saw an old friend at a shop. I told him to stop by and say hello to his friend... "Abah jumpa la dia... cerita macamana Abah jadi sihat balik..." Of course the conversation went on in Kelantanese dialect :-)

Then... I woke up. At first, I forgot I had that dream. After breakfast with husband, I tried to remember cos I knew I had a strange dream. After a while, it all started to came to me...

It was a sweet dream... a medicine for missing heart. But sometimes, to be reminded that you miss someone - can be very hurtful, especially when it can only be a dream...
