I’m Not In It To Win It, I’m In It For You

–The title of the entry is actually a lyric from If It’s Love by Train, which I’m listening to right now. I dunno if it’s related to the entry.. but……. erm……. yeah! Whatever!–

I always have trouble writing the introduction for my entry. I know I always start with something like this, ‘Hi there! It’s been awhile I last updated this blog.. Bla bla bla..’ Right? Getting sick of that line. So.. There! My introduction. I’m actually talking about writing the introduction, for my introduction of this entry. Whatt…??

Well… Today, I had Seminar Teknik Menjawab UPSR for three subjects which were Bahasa Melayu, Science and Maths. English seminar will be held next week, because of time constraint. We cant pack everything at one day, that’s for sure. So, as you can see in my Twitter page, it was actually very boring at first, but then, after few hours, I started to enjoy it. Some of the input given by the penceramah¬†reminded me when I was in Year 6, preparing myself for UPSR, just like them. Nways, during the Science seminar, the penceramah gave the students tips about the changes in litmus papers caused by acid and alkali. Well, I remembered learning this topic, but my teacher had never told me this.It’s actually quite an interesting tip. It’s from the word, SAMBAL.

<–SA.M.B.AL–>

SA represent acid, M is red (Merah), B is blue (Biru) and AL represents alkali. If the litmus paper changes from blue to red, it means acid (read from B to the left), and if it’s otherwise, red to blue, it means, alkali (read from M to the right). Well, it is interesting! ūüėÄ And I’m glad that those students now have easier way to remember this.

After the seminar ended which was at 5pm, I quickly met my tailor, which I called Auntie. I wanted her to make me a very beautiful engagement dress. Actually, I’ve already bought the kain months ago with my sis. The base colour is cream colour, decorated with sexy red sulaman/ kerawang or whatever you call it. It’s beautiful. Why did I choose cream colour as the base colour? Well, I’ve asked few experts (tokey butik2 pengantin) about what colour is the most suitable colour for engagement. Most of them told me, it’s whether white or cream. It’s the current trend. It’s simple (coz it’s only an engagement ceremony) but at the same time, it looks very nice and I would say… elegant! Well, of course I don’t wanna be behind the trend, so cream it is. And why is it with red sulaman/ kerawang? Coz I like red! It’s something to do with Liverpool. Haha!!

Chifon, cream+red

The pearl cream coloured lining...

Actually, I wanted to post a picture of me wrapped with those fabrics by the salesgirl at Jakel, Shah Alam (in front of everyone at that bridal floor!), but… It was too.. funny! I’ll just post it later.

Auntie said, baju tu siap in October, coz now she’s busy making raya dresses, which I dont really mind, coz the engagement day will be almost in the end of the year, so I’m not really in a hurry. It’s just that… I can’t wait to see the dress!!!

And honestly, when I was driving back home, I smiled from ear to ear! I was (still am) sooo happy!

Just A Minute! Quick Update~

Bank Rakyat guy just came here today. He handed me few forms that I need to fill in regarding to the new baby that I’m gonna get within these two months. I’m soo excited! ūüėÄ

Nways, in my previous entry, here and here, I did mention that my new baby will be in baby blue colour right? Well, first I mentioned, it would be pearl white, then black and then baby blue. Erm… Here it goes! I’m gonna change it again! Haha.. It’ll be something in… RED! HA! My red baby (as in Liverpool RED!). Garang sket! Hihi..

I have one last request (One last request? NO, that doesn’t sound right).

MIE 2304.

Can I choose this as my plate number??  Can I? Plz plz..
I hope it’s not that impossible.

Okaylah. Mahu mandi. Jap lgi nk buka puase.
Babai!

Tennessee Line

Tennessee Line by Daughtry

I open my lungs to breathe in forgiveness and love
Haunting me now reminders of how I used to be
And on down the road my troubles are sure to follow
Looking out the window, the hell if I know where I will go
So I’ll just keep on driving

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight, Tennessee line just changed my mind
Well, it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

Who would’ve known that pride is so hard to swallow?
As I rest on the shoulder of a road growing colder
With the trouble I own, should I just keep on driving?

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight, Tennessee line just changed my mind
Well, it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

I know I must be doing something right
Head the other way, back to where I started out
Ask myself if I can turn it all around tonight
And stop living with doubt

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight, Tennessee line just changed my mind
Well, it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
It’s my heart I’ll follow this time
I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
I’m gonna turn it all around tonight, turn it all around tonight
Turn it all around tonight
I’m gonna turn it all around tonight at the Tennessee line

I didn’t know the song, and I bet this is not his popular single of his album. But the other day, when I was surfing the net, I heard this song on the TV. I know it’s by Daughtry (his voice is one of a kind, you see). I quickly ran in front of the TV, to check out the song, what’s the title and etc. Turned out it wasn’t a video clip, it was a trailer with the song as its background music. It was Justified trailer, the TV-series.

Justified TV-Series

The song suits the wordings of the trailer very well. It even fits the background of the series, country setting. I fell in love with the song instantly! Daughtry has the best manly voice ever!!

Enjoy the song!

Butterflies Fly Away… (SPP Was Over! Phew!)

Here. I wanna share with you guys my SPP interview experience! There are 1001 stories behind the interview actually. Well, not really 1001, I exaggerated, but you know what I mean. Nways, I stayed over at my brother’s house, Abg Bob in Klang because her wife, Kak Seha would be the one who drove me to Putrajaya, the next morning. So, that night, I memorized lots of facts, NKRA, PIPP, NEP, TEP, SGM and blah blah blah, not forgotten all those Ministers’ names along with their titles. At the same time, I prayed very hard that I wouldn’t be asked those questions during the interview. I’m really bad at memorizing names and facts. :-p

Nways, the next morning, I woke up at 5.30am. Right after I took my shower, suddenly.. PUF! Blackout! I was like.. HUH??? Darkness around me, I couldn’t see a thing. I hadn’t even dressed yet! So, everything I did, dressed, prayed, getting ready for the interview, only with a little help from the torch light, but I still managed to put on my make-up and dressed well. Hehe. So, at 6.30am, Kak Seha and I drove to Putrajaya. In the car, Kak Seha said, ‘tak pernah ade blackout kat rumah tu. Tetiber je blackout. Pelik btol.’ Hu… Was that a bad sign or what..???

We arrived there, around 7.15am. While walking to the post-guard to collect the INTERVIEWEE PASS, I saw Intan. My friend when I was in IPBA. I was so surprised to see her! She said, she was also expecting Syafwah. The three of us would be interviewed on the same day! I had no idea! Haha. Then, more surprises! I saw Ellie!!! Ellie was my dorm-mate when I was in Form 4. My ex-school mate. It’s been a long time since I last met her. I basically screamed in front of the post-guard coz I was shocked to see her that day. I didn’t know she is a teacher.

It didn’t just stop there. The surprises, I mean. When I was trying to grab my wallet to take out my IC, I realized it wasn’t there. My wallet was not in my bag! I suddenly remembered, I put my wallet on the bed before I slept last night… And… I did NOT put it back into my bag. ARGH!!! I left it!!! Damn! I tried to talk to the Urusetia, if I could just go for the interview without the IC, coz I already had the certified photocopy, and they said NO. So, the solution was, Kak Seha had to drive back to Klang to pick up my wallet, and then drove back to Putrajaya. It took almost two hours. So, from the first session, I was pushed to second session, coz I didn’t have the IC, so I couldn’t register and took the turn. Not just that, I misplaced my photos too! It was sooo clumsy! Syafwah and Intan helped me to find the photos. We even asked few interviewees to stand up and move over to see if the photos were somehow under their chairs or somewhere near them. I KNOW I was really making a scene! The IC was one thing, now the photos! Hahah. Finally, we found it. It was in my file, between the photocopies of my documents. Phew! Thank God I didn’t lose it. Owh, before the photos, it was my certified photocopy of my SPM cert that was missing. It took me 10 minutes to find the damn thing that was actually terselit kat document2 yg lain. That one kakak urusetia la yg salah. Hihi

So, 9.30am, after I got my IC, I registered, and there.. I was the 8th person to be interviewed. Intan and Syafwah were long gone by then. They finished around 8.15am I guess, so that left me alone. With Ellie, actually. But Ellie sat at the back, with her few friends, so I just took the time to recall everything that I read the night before. After the 7th person walked out from the room, I was ready to go in, until I saw the Encik ??? (the interviewer.. I dunno the name until now) walked out, and he said, ‘Saya nk rehat kejap.’ Haih… I had to wait longer! Comon! I wanna get this over with! After half an hour, I saw him walking in. IT’S TIME! Few seconds after that, TING! My turn! I prepared myself, and walked in. I was told by the Urusetia that he was not the Dato’ or whatever, so just addressed him as Encik or Tuan. I sat, and put my bag on a chair beside me. He was flicking through my files and looking at my certs. He asked me to say something bout myself, so I went bla bla bla until I ran out of things to say, then I was just silent. He looked at my degree and said, ‘Owh.. Australia.. Banyak ijazah dari Australia yg x diiktraf. Awak tau x?’ I nodded my head and said, ‘Ye, kakak urusetia ade bgtau saye tdi. B.Ed Math and Science contohnye yang x diiktiraf tu.’ The Encik said, ‘Ha.. Untung la awak.. Ni dh diiktiraf ni kire okay la.. Senang urusan.’

Then, he asked me a million dollar question. ‘Dah kawen?’ I smiled and said, ‘Ermm.. Belum lgi. Belum sampai masa.’ He seemed surprised. ‘Eh, bile nk tgu masa smpai?? Skarang la masenye!’ And then I said, ‘Ye la.. Maksud saya, nk kerja dulu, cari duit dulu. Hehe…’ He nodded his head again.’Dah ada la ni kan..??’ ‘Erm.. Dah’. And he asked me how did we (Mr.Gonzales and I) meet and such things. I said, we were in the same course, bla bla bla.. Suddenly, he looked at me, cut me off and said, ‘Ha! Ni la. Org suruh belajar, die gi mengorat pulak! Sape mula dulu?? I laughed nervously. ‘Erm.. Tah. Same2 kot..’ And he said, ‘Mane boleh same2.. Mesti awak mula dulu kan??’ This time I laughed real hard. “Tak la Encik, mane ade. Dier mula dulu kot.. Btol encik..’ He laughed. ‘Ye la die mula ni.. Entah2 awak mula dulu..’ Did I mention his skin face was very very fair! And when he laughed, his face turned to red. Well… Kinda cute! Hahahhahaha

So, back to the interview, he asked me the toughest challenge that I’ve been facing teaching in the rural school so far. So, I said this and that, bla bla bla, yada yada yada… We debated about few issues a little bit, challenged each other’s opinions and etc, until he said, ‘Hm.. Okay lah. Saya saje je nk berborak2, berbahas sket2 ngn awak.’ I was like…?? Eh, it’s over already?? Really? I asked him, ‘Dah ke Encik?? Saya dah hafal NKRA sume ni. Takde tanye pon’. He responded, ‘Buat apa saya nk tanyer, awak boleh baca semua tu sendiri. Saya tanye pada bnde2 yang melibatkan penyelesaian masalah, cara awak berfikir, bercakap, tu je.. Semua fakta2 tu, awak bleh baca sendiri. Itu pon kalo x interview awak x bace kan?’ I quickly said, ‘Eh, takde lah Encik. Saya bace la.. Saya bnde2 ni mang amek tau.. Cume bile nk interview ni, saya bace detail lah sket.. Heheheh’. Obviously, I lied. I dont even have to tell you that, right? Haha

So, I guess everything went well. I didn’t get tough questions, even though I was ready for it.¬† I walked out of the room and the other interviewees asked me how was he, did he ask weird questions, and etc. I simply said, ‘No la.. Sembang2 jer…’ They said again, ‘Lamenye u tdi kat dalam tu..’. I looked at my watch. Haah la.. Almost half an hour. X sedar pon.. Hehe. After saying goodbyes to them, I walked out of the building happily! I was sooo relieved! I met Kak Seha, and we went for lunch before heading back to Klang!

There were few things we did after that, I mean we didn’t drive straight home, but I’ll just share the other stories in next entries. Owh! Did I mention I took another CRK for the next day? Yes! Haha.

Okay! Bubbye for now!

Here, My Sunday Words…

Butterflies in my stomach. That is how I’m feeling now. Really! I’ve been memorizing facts, mumbling them, and thinking bout them every time. I am sooo nervous bout the SPP interview that I’m gonna face this Wednesday! Argh! I hate the feeling! But at the same time, I cant wait for it to be over.

Pink folder tu...

Just wish me luck guys!

Another thing, it is about my baby. Instead of black, pearl white and very recently yellow, maybe now I’ll change the colour to… Baby Blue. It sounds… not so sporty, yeah, I know, but I haven’t made the final decision yet, maybe I’ll change it back to pearl white (Well, I change my mind every two minutes. Owh yeah, I’m a freak!)¬† Haha.

Few days ago, I purposely shut my Facebook account down, and now, I’M AN OFFICIAL ‘CHIPSMORE’. Why? No particular reason actually.. I’m just getting sick and bored of it. I told Mr.Gonzales about it, and he asked me to shut down his too. Haha. So, now both of us are Facebookless. I decided to activate it again when my new baby arrives (after I make up my mind about the colour, that is). Her pictures will be the first thing to upload after I reactivate my account. Haha. In the meantime, since NO-FACEBOOK at the moment, I’ll just tweet everything that happens around me on my Twitter and kalo rajin lgi, I’ll update my blog. Okies?

What else to update here..???

I guess no. So, till we meet again. Bye folks!

p/s – Mr.Gonzales, I command you to get well soon! Hurry! I’m dying of boredom.

p/s/s – GUH! What a boring entry!
