Hula Girl

So my daughter had her first concert on 22 November 2012 at Royal Selangor Golf Club. Since I'm working in Miri, I have to take leave for a day just to attend and show my undivided support. 

The concert was on THURSDAY at 6.30PM! Well if you are KLites, you know what I'm talking about. Bloody traffic are madness!

When I was informed by Kak Ana (my helper), I asked her 3 times on the concert date, time and venue. I am confident that she must gave me the wrong info. It turn out that the concert is on weekday. Oh yes, one more thing, I get to know about the concert 1 week before the actual date.

I am so lucky my sister and husband helped me to sorted the costume. She has to get a full hula girl costume (that reminds me of my younger time, I did have the same costume theme when I'm 6 years old). Anyway... I definitely wont have the time to buy. I just fly back to KL for the concert and leave to Miri the next morning (which I missed the morning flight, bugger!).

Back to the concert.... We reached there at 6.20pm with my son, nephew and niece tag along. Men, my nephew and niece really can make me get a migraine. Running in the refreshment area where they can easily trample to the glasses or hot water. Pffffttt..

Luckily my sister and Pippa came on time and I basically just concentrate to the concert. Mind you, I am a short temper person that is one of the reason why my mom against the idea of me bringing both kids to the concert. Lesson learnt, BIG TIME.

Ok back to the concert. Arianna was looking around for her parents (we have to hide earlier because she can cry and be passive if she see us). Mommie being Mommie, I waved my hand to her excitedly despite all the talks that "Daddy you don't wave at her or she will never dance".

SHE DID CRIED AND RAN TO US! *claps my hands on my forehead few times*

My husband was really pissed at me. I can tell by the look. Hehe..

With Adik on my right side, I ushered Arianna back to the stage and she positively climb up and joined back her group. Errrrr only for awhile then she was busy admiring the microphone (she like singing so much!).

I told my husband that it is a great success to have her join the group and be on stage with the costume because I know she HATES to wore the fringe thingy and watched by hundreds eyes. I will share the video on my next post.

Kakak.... Mommie, Daddy and Adik so proud of you! Next year we try to improve ok? XOXO

My Last Day In Miri

Today is my last day in Miri after received short notice instruction on my transfer.

I would like to thank to my team especially Michele (my right arm) for the support, belief and commitment that was shown during my tenure in Miri. I also go home knowing that without my dedicated team, very little of this would be possible. So thank you for the faith and trust...

Thank you my team. Thank you Miri for having me...

Burger Lah & Bringin Cafe










Last night Gang Gagak Putih (Jay, Michele and myself) explored a new restaurant called Burger Lah at Centre Point, Miri. Since I never had a chance to try the famous burger bakar in KL, Burger Lah has somehow mend my craving for the patty burger.

The best part of this restaurant they provide a "burger challenge" ala Man Vs Food programme, whereby if you managed to finish it within 30 minutes, you don't have to pay for it. If you didn't finish the burger within the time given then you are required to pay MYR60. Anyone can take the challenge at any time.

The challenge plate consist of 4 burgers (2 beef & 2 chicken) and 1kg of french fries. If you successfully finish within time given, your photo will be up on their Wall of Shame (it is not a typo error, they really did called it as Wall of Shame).

Three of us had a great time and laughed. The food was great! It's up to the standard. Our bills only MYR45.30! Cheap kan..

Now we have 2 new place to eat, first Burger Lah, second is Bringin Cafe - served plenty of Nogori and Semenanjung food! Very delicious! We ate there during lunch time. By the way the owner is from Negeri Sembilan and his wife is local. They just open the cafe last year. I took ikan patin masak tempoyak, vege (nasi, of coz!) and ordered ice tea. Guess how much it cost me? MYR6! Now I am looking forward for our next lunch.

Sick

Very sick this morning and I thought I might have appendicitis. I am so grateful that my staff, Michele offered to send me to the clinic. Most of clinics in Miri are close today so we have to travel quite a distant to see the doctor.

This clinic is full of people (good sign that the doctor is good) but they make me waited for 2 and half hours!

Everything is good now. There is no appendicitis. Thank god!

Arianna 4th Birthday




My daughter HATES any version of birthday songs. It all started from my 30th birthday... 

She obviously upset after we forced her to listen her own birthday song... Hehe.. Mommie love you Kakak!


My Rockstar!



He must have watched his Daddy talking using the microphone.. Smart boy.. =) 

Doomsday?



Just read in my friend status in FB saying that the entire world will be a total blackout from 23rd to 25th December 012, due to an alignment of the universe. Honestly, I am so freak out when I read that. Already planned to get any ticket available back to KL. Tata to my job. I just don't care anymore. I rather jobless (ok la that is so drama even I do have my own company to support me if I decided to leave) and be with my family than sitting here alone. 

But then, people like to talk rubbish. There is a rumour before that it will be a doomsday on 12/12/12. All started from the stupid movie.

After getting my sense back, I started to investigate and this is what you need to know. 
NASA has predicted no such thing! Indeed, the phrases used above — "total blackout of planet," "alignment of the universe," "shift from the current third dimension to zero dimension," etc. — are not only undefined, but meaningless. It's pseudo-scientific nonsense.

Phewww... Ok, now back to work!

My Boy Turns Two!




I am so blessed to have a pair (first born is Arianna Ayesha), Aariz Jihadi is my second child. Since I am busy with my kids during my long leave, I don't get a chance to buy the presents yet. Usually I will buy 2 present. 1 for Arianna and 1 for Aariz. This is to avoid problem in the future. Parents with two or more kids definitely understand what I'm talking about. Mayhem babe!

Planning to get the present this Saturday before leaving.

Adik, 
I held you in my arms when I saw you first,
The first time ever I felt my emotions burst.
My heart filled up when I saw your serene face,
I don’t think I can ever get over that phase.
Happy Birthday My Love,
My life and everything above.

Love, Mommie....
