Karnival Teratak GLAM Raya

The first week of Ramadhan has already passed. How have you guys been? I hope, we’re all getting whatever that we aim to achieve in this Holy month. 3 more weeks to greet Syawal. How’s your preparation? I gotta admit though, I actually dislike Syawal. In order to welcome Syawal, you have to prepare everything to celebrate the 30 days of fasting. It is very time and money consuming even though I know, it actually doesn’t have to be that way. I honestly prefer if we can just puasa for a month and only celebrate it for a day, which is only on the 1st of Syawal. Then, the next day, we just chill at home with family, eating raya food and watch raya programs on TV. Mcm Aidiladha la.. Sempoi je. But since we can’t, since there are gonna be open houses to attend (or even to host!), friends and relatives to visit, places to go and etc, we have to, I repeat, HAVE TO, make baju raya for those events. Not just for baju raya, but us girls, tudung raya, kasut raya, handbag raya, jewellery raya, sekarang ni nail raya pulak with homemade inai, contact lens raya jugak maybe.. Macam2!

So, yesterday I went to this Karnival Teratak Glam Raya which is organised by Hanis Zalikha, to do some raya shopping. This year, I’ve been twice to this kind of events. The other was hosted by Vendeur, a month ago in the same place. This Glam event was a lil bit more interesting because you also get to see other Malay celebrities opening their booths, selling their preloved items, like Lisa Surihani, Liyana Jasmay, AwalScha, Elfira etc.

I went to this carnival with my sister and my niece. Just the three of us. Hubby didn’t go because he said there was nothing for him there. Yeah okay. As you can see, the place was really really crowded. 11 a.m. and onwards, people were starting to flood in and it was kinda difficult to stop at certain booths because people kept pushing you, unless, you move to the side and squeezed yourself into the booths. It was not as crowded as Vendeur tho, because if I’m not mistaken, this event was only joined by 200 vendors compared to 400 at Vendeur Festival last time. However, when an event is also participated by celebrities, paham-paham sajoooo lah yoo.. Some of the aisles were blocked by people who wanted to take a peek at the celebs but too shy to ask for a photograph. So, diorang berdiri je la kat situ ramai2 and caused the traffic jam. So in order to move, you have to squeeze in yourself between the queues and crowd. Orang raba kau, kau raba orang. Gitu laa.. Haha

Saw other celebrities too like Awal and Diana Danielle but we didn’t stop for pictures, instead heading straight to the entrance. Kepala ingat nak balik je time tu, exhausted.

Damages done. Bought a scarf to match my JM dress at Dhia Collection and Malady Couture to match my baju raya on the 1st Syawal.

There… My raya shopping, done! Only for myself tho. Hubby still hasn’t done his part. Ladies first, words of a gentleman. Hihi

 

Happy Aidilfitri From The Blind Kitten

Hi people. I am in Muar right now, raya’ing with my family in law. Sorry that I have been ignoring this blog, lately. It is just that I have been so busy with raya preparation as well as……. my transferring process (I haven’t told you about this one yet, I will soon). I didn’t even get to wish you guys Selamat Hari Raya kan?

So, here.

SELAMAT HARI RAYA, MAAF ZAHIR BATIN.
IKHLAS DARI THE BLIND KITTEN

p/s- I’ll post the proper entry about my raya celebration, first time with a husband.

A Little Bit Of Here And There

Yeah, blogging again!

Lately, I keep blogging. Why? Coz I love my new layout so I’m in high spirit updating my blog. So, if any of you are getting tired of it, you can always surf away. It’s that simple. 🙂

Okay. It’s now the twentieth day of Ramadhan for us, Moslems. How is everyone doing? I’ve already had my MC for almost a week, sooo I guess I am doing good. Haha. It’s now getting nearer to raya. This is going to be my first raya as a wife. I’m kind of excited and already finished doing major shopping (like shoes, handbags, dresses, baju melayu, scarves etc) for both of us. Our raya theme is purple+pink. I actually wanted some turqoise but I couldn’t say no to the purple baju kurung moden that I saw in Tangkak with Mr.Gonzales. But we’re planning to peek at some last-minute shopping too. Maybe I could catch a few more…? And this time turqoise?? Let’s see. Owh, almost forgot! I haven’t bought any raya brooch yet! Okay, put that in the list.

Some of this actually not for raya, for example that scarf. It's for casual outings. Bought it coz.... I love it?

While blogging, I’m also downloading Daughtry’s songs. I’m planning to burn those awesome songs into a CD and put it in my car. So whenever Hitz.fm is playing suckie songs, I can always play this. Erm, not just Daughtry actually, I’m also downloading Lifehouse’s. I love this kinda bands you know, Daughtry, Lifehouse, Nickelback, Rascal Flatts, I used to like 3 Doors Down too (please note, I didn’t mention Westlife coz that was the band I used to like in my TEENAGE years). But my favourite would be Daughtry, Chris Daughtry. I believe he has the manliest voice ever on Earth!

How I wish I can play guitar.. No, I’m too lazy to learn. I want it to magically happens. Boleh? #LikeABoss

Hmm.. What else to ramble here? Owh, here’s this funy+sweet story about my Year 5 students. I was mad, like really mad at them on last two Friday. I was so mad that I walked out of the class just like that even though it wasn’t really time yet. Then, when I was in the staffroom, this Year 3 boy came to me and gave me something. It was a letter. He said, ‘Cher, ni budak2 darjah 5 bagi.’ It surprised me a little bit, so I asked, ‘Budak darjah 5 tu sape?’ and he said ‘Tah, budak2 lelaki’. I said thanks to the boy, and read the letter. Yes, it was an apology letter. Too bad I already threw it out otherwise I can put the picture here. I was not convinced by their apology. On the next Monday, I was still mad, so I didn’t enter the class. I just gave them work to finish. I did the same thing on Tuesday. Wednesday was on off day due to Nuzul Quran, so on Thursday, I decided to enter the class. Enough la merajuk with kids. Hmm… I didn’t mention anything about the Friday incident, I straight away went on with my Literature lesson. Well… I guess they behaved better this time. When I walked out of the class, these two girls came to me, and handed me something. It was presents. I asked them,’What for?’ One of them said, ‘Kitorang tak tau birthday teacher bile, so kitorg bagi je la..’ I laughed and said, ‘My birthday bulan April. Dah lame lepas..’ ‘Takpe la teacher.. Ambik je..’ I was touched. I think I knew why they gave me the ‘birthday presents’. I smiled and thanked the sweet girls. As I opened the box, owh I love it!!! This handphone string that has my name on it, and this very cute little house, full of red and green flower petals in it. I thought they were very cute. And, they were RED, my favourite colour! I told Mr.Gonzales about it, and he was soo jealous that I have such sweet students. Hehe

Look at that handphone string. Lovely!

The little house. I put this on my car's dashboard. 🙂

Okay, speaking about Mr.Gonzales, I have something to clarify here. In the last entry, when I said I was really mad about him coz he was being too nice, some have misunderstood what I was trying to say. Some have claimed that I’m not being grateful for what I have? Maybe because of my poor writing that the message was not well delivered. But if you read carefully, it was actually a compliment I wrote for him. What I meant was, he is the only one who can put up with me at my worst. He is the only one who could be that patient with me. And it actually works well for our relationship. If you asked me, do I want someone who’s as stubborn as me, as bad-tempered as me, as mean as me, HELL NO! I am sure our house will be torn apart. What I am saying is, yes, he’s so patient, always gives in, always takes whatever bullets I shoot at him and hardly shoot them back at me, that at some points I find it boring and no challenges at all, but thank you God, it works that way, because if it didn’t we wouldn’t get to this point. We wouldn’t get married to each other. He teaches me to be a better person in his own way, even though so.far.it.doesn’t.really.succeed.coz.i’m.still.bad.tempered.as.ever but my point is, unlike any other men, he is able to handle me. I feel like he’s the only man who can do that. I appreciate him. I’m grateful that I have him in my life. I won’t trade him for anything in this world, even if Michael Owen or Jensen Ackles get in the way. Okay. Full stop.

The luckiest or not-so-luckiest man in the world<- My beloved husband. 🙂

Okay, I’ve rambled quite a lot already. I think that’s all for this time. Pray I won’t be blogging again for the next 24 hours.

Bye.

Let’s Do Some Catchin-Up #15

Hi lovely people out there! We meet again! As promised, I’m now updating my blog and I really hope I can publish it tonight instead of saving it as a draft. There are soooo many drafts in my wordpress dashboard. I will delete them after this. Menyemak! Nways, how are you people? Life’s going great? Good! My life has been the same, there were ups and downs as usual, but overall, okay la… I survived! Hehe.

So, last few weeks, I was sent to Concorde Inn Hotel, Sepang for LINUS meeting. I was there for 4 days, translating Mathematic modul for Year 2 from Malay to English. I don’t teach lower primary at all, but I still had to go for this meeting coz none of the teachers at my school were willing to go and do the translation. But you know, it wasn’t that bad. Even tho the schedule was packed (we had morning, afternoon and evening sessions), but all we did at the meeting room was just sitting in front of laptop and translated the module. No groupwork, presentations, LDK or whatever. So, I enjoyed it. Haha. I finished my part on Day 2, so for the rest of the sessions (until Day 4), I was just Facebooking, Twittering and etc. Hahahahahah! NICE! What made it nicer? The FOOD!!!! It was really really really really good!! I love it!!! Bersemangat btol gi cafe house dier. Haha.

Going to Concorde Inn, Sepang.. Let's go Chullie!

Had to use GPS coz I had (still have) really really poor sense of direction. Haha

I also made friends with many interesting and cool people. One of them is Geetha from SKJT Sentul. She was also my roomate. We had many things in common, and that made me soo comfortable with her! Hehe. Geetha babe, if you’re reading this, I just wanna let you know that I miss you so much! I tried to find our pics together, the ones that you sent me on our last day, but I couldnt find them! Huhu.. Can you send them back to me please…?

Then, the next week, I was called again for the second phase of the meeting, but this time in Seri Cempaka Services Suite in Cheras. It was pretty much the same thing; editing the translation that we did the previous week. But I think, this was more stressed compared to the previous work, coz we had to EDIT the whole translation. It wasn’t easy you know. I prefer deleted the whole thing and wrote the new translation. Hm, good thing bout this second meeting, was the suite itself. It was awesome! I love it! But the food, ergh! I didnt really like the food. Everytime I entered the bistro, there was always this smell like…. Capsicum smell. Haha. I dont know how to describe the smell, but I hate it! The food in Concorde was soo much better and delicious. Yummy!

The suite!

My future master bedroom. Haha. Really like this!

I love the space! Soo.. spacious! Haha

On my way back to Shah Alam (sis’ place), I didn’t use the GPS coz my roomate, Kak Azi had already told me the easiest way to get to Federal Highway. But then, hmm…. I got lost. When I switched on the GPS, it gave me wrong direction again (or was it me who didn’t understand the instruction?). I was mad, frustrated and for the first time, I shouted at the GPS. Hahaha. Bodo! I almost cried, panic and etc, but finally I managed to get to the Federal Highway. I saw Midvalley on my right and at that moment, I was sooooo relieved! Haha. That was my first time driving alone around KL. So, kelam kabut sket.. Haha

Yay! X sesat dah! Sampai gak Jakel Shah Alam. Haha

I was supposed to go for the third meeting next week in Kuala Lumpur International Hotel, but… Hehe. I did something evil. When I was in Cheras, I decided that I didn’t wanna go for the third meeting, so I scratched my name off, and wrote my colleague’s name. Few days ago, I heard that she already got the letter, and our GB asked her to go. Yeay me! Haha!

Okay! Next, about my E-Day preparation. It was almost 70% done. The set of hantaran, the mini pelamin, the make-up, the photographer and the dress! Hmm, I would like to post some of the pictures here, especially the pictures of set hantaran, but… Nanti x surprise la pulak kan..? Hihi.. Satu gambar je la ek..

One of the stuff for hantaran, Maroon Towel with our names. Hehe

I want both my special days (E-Day and W-Day) to be smooth and perfect. So I already cracked my brain to get some ideas for my W-Day, such as the theme colours, the pelamin, baju sanding and baju nikah, the photographer, the decoration, the invitation cards and etc. I’ve never thought it could be this headache thinking and planning about our own W-Day. Or maybe I am just too fussy. Hmm.. Maybe!

Last two weeks, I shopped some stuff for E-Day. One of the stuff that I bought was Mr.Gonzales’ baju melayu for akad nikah together with its sampin songket. I love the combination of the colours. Hihi. I already gave it to the lady who worked on my gubahan hantaran and the other day, I got this MMS of the gubahan baju melayu and songket. It was SO.BEAUTIFUL! Thanks akak (tah akak ape, tatau nama)! You’re the best! Owh, I also bought the bed sheet for my W-Day. Haha. Mak la yg suruh beli.. Senang dh beli awal2.. Hehe.. And I am planning to buy hantaran stuff for W-Day this December, during Christmas sale together with Mr.Gonzales. Hehe! Cant wait!!

Okay! Next! This is sooo exciting! Now, I wanna make an official announcement to all of you lovely readers. I wanna welcome, our new little angel in Abdul Malik’s family, Aurellya Darlene binti Muhd Asyraf! That’s the correct spelling of her name. Before this I spelled her name, Aurelia, but it is actually Aurellya. What a classic name right? As you have already guessed, this is not an Arabic name. It’s taken from Latin language. Aurellya means……… Hm.. Ape ek? I cannot remember la.. But if I’m not mistaken, Darlene means ‘beloved daughter’, or ‘Yang Dikasihi’. Macam darling gitu.. Hehe. Something like that lah! Eh, tapi mang kitorg panggil dier Darling pon. Except, mom. She calls her, ‘Puteri’. Hehe

She looks just like Abg Bob!

Our Darling. Sooo precious!!

Owh my! The lovely pink angel!!!

My favourite pic! Darling kena jemur to avoid sakit kuning. She looks sooo gemok! Hehe

The latest pic of Darling! She smiles in her beauty sleep! Hihi. COMEL!

I want my children to be as cute, beautiful and healthy as her! Darling, you are really such a darling.. We love you so much! And we welcome you to our family with arms and heart wide opened. Welcome beautiful girl! 🙂

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Okay! I think that’s all for today! Ngntuk sudaa.. Mahu tidur. Wa.. Wanna sleep already?? It’s the weekend! Owh. Loser sungguh kehidupanku!
