In case you’re wondering why I purposely looked at the floor and the bag, it’s because I ain’t photogenic and most of the time, maybe about 95% of the time, I take bad pictures #sadfact. The other 5% is a miracle where my face turns out okay. Cameras somehow hate my face so I decided to hide it. It’s either the awkward smile or the weird eyes. Most of the time, both.

Whatevs.

IT IS ON!

12

What’s on?? Yeay, the school holiday mode is ON! I’ve never failed to make this shoutout without feeling like a school girl. At this 28 years of age, I feel so young that I still can talk about school! That’s the good thing being a teacher. You’re just never old. 🙂

So far, I still have no solid plan of what what I’m gonna do, or where I’m gonna go. I was thinking of  Redang or Perhentian, but the places are fully booked. If anything still available, it’s gonna be so expensive.

Hmm.. Still thinking. Ideas?

While I was still searching, my fingers ‘accidentally’ clicked on this very familiar website. Thereeeee you gooo…..

I love caftan! It’s flowy, airy.. Haha! Sesuai sangat la dengan weather Malaysia yang ‘sejuk’ ni kan.. My favourite would be that purple green caftan and also that pink beige dress. Cant buy them now tho. Have to ask hubby if he’s okay with it. This is only the first collection, there will be other collections coming from them soon. Check out their website for more raya designs okay?

Before I go, I just wanna post some pictures of yesterday’s event. My colleagues and I were assigned to be apart of the Teacher’s Day Celebration for Muar Level in Dataran Tanjung Mas. We were in charge of the gifts and souvenirs as well as the emcees for that prize giving ceremony. For that matter, 2 months ago I went to Bandung to buy our uniform for this event (click here if you miss my Bandung story), and this is the result of that uniform!

Today, we went to our new house again. The kitchen is almost done, but I’m planning to fix some of the things that didn’t turn out as what I have expected. Yeah, I’m fussy when it comes to this kind of things. Even if you have all money in the world, house renovation is not something that you do every year right? Because it’s not just about money, but TIME mainly! So once you do it, you need to do it right, or else you have to suck it up and live with it (which I hate). Alhamdulillah, today we manage to find solution to the kitchen flaws and hopefully after this, it’ll turn out well.

Also, a bad news for today.

My EG Tukar result. As expected.

My EG Tukar result. As expected.

Seriously, the thought of working for another year at that school is very torturous. I don’t mind people being strict or too particular for that matter, because in everything we do, we always wanna see good results out of it. Right? That’s normal and I wouldn’t complain about people being fussy because I’m a fussy person myself. I can bear with that.

But how can you bear with people who are so full of favouritism, speak with a forked tongue like a snake and cause fights among the colleagues, disrespectful and so manipulative. It’ll become worse if those are the acts of a leader. People like this are nothing but poisons of an institution or an organisation. You can never be happy working for this kind of people. No one can.

Better luck for me next year, I hope.

Off to the post office. Remember that TPL group I talked about in my previous entry? I sold two more dresses in my wardrobe (to give room to other new dresses haha) because I rarely use them. That’s unfair to the dresses, right? They surely deserve better owner. Haha

Bye!

Little This And That

Last week, I already shopped 3 dresses from my favourite clothing line, The Poplook, but I still haven’t got a chance to try them on yet because right now I’m in Sabak Bernam and those are addressed to my house in Muar. Huaaa… Cant wait! But, to get rid of the guilt (of wasting money on dresses again), I decided to sell some of my dresses in my wardrobe, those with the tags are still attached. Yang baru ade, yang dah yg pakai sekali dua, then x pakai dah pun ade. I should do a clearance sale kan.. Usually I let go of my stuff in TPL Group on Facebook, they’re always sold out. That’s why I love buying TPL stuff, because they have high second value and whenever I don’t need them, I can always sell ’em. Here’s the best part. There’s always buyers! Hahaha cool right!

This is the group. It's done me a lot of favours so far. Hehe

Okay, by the way, these are the dresses that I bought, which I might sell in the future! Haha but if they’re soooo worth to keep, i’ll just keep them then.

Today is my second day at home, and when I say home, I mean Rumah Sabak Bernam. I’m only gonna be here until this Sunday, and then I’ll go back to Muar to monitor the whole progress of our house renovation. Can’t wait to see my new kitchen. I hope they won’t mess things up while we’re not around.

Speaking about kitchen, well, I decided to cook today since I RARELY cooked in our own house (yes, in caps!). Hubby requested Nasi Lemak with sambal sotong and ayam bakar rempah. So, here they are!

The whole thing for lunch. Ye, org makan nasik lemak biase mase breakfast, tapi kitorg makan time lunch pulak. Haha ada haku kesaaahhh? Yg penting hubby cakap ‘sedap’, and mak approved!

Macam bengong je puji masakan sendiri. Hahahaha. It’s actually quite an accomplishment for a newbie like me, you know. That’s why I’m bragging about my cooking right now. Haha

Today is 27th November 2013. It’s 2 months (2 months and 1 day) now since ayah passed away. The pain of losing him is still there (how can you lose it, you’ll never lose it), but we know he’s in a better place right now. I still get a glimpse of him sometimes in my sleep and his voice still lingers in my ears. Just now when I got back from buying groceries for mom, we passed by the cemetery where ayah was buried, the balai raya where ayah used to go for kampung meeting and the mosque. Every inch of this place reminds me of him. Lagi2 bila tgk parit2 kat sepanjang jalan. I used to help ayah printing those pictures of parit for kampung development files and documentations. Hehe.. Kdg2 ayah keluar rumah bwk camera, saje tanye, ‘Ayah nak gi mana?’ He said, ‘Nak tgkp gambar parit. Nak ikot ke?’ Hehehe.. Or, balik rumah tanye mak, ayah kat mana, mak said, ‘Alah, tgkp gambar parit la tu…’ Haha. Parit parit parit! Memories! Always love and miss you ayah!

Pen off now. See ya!

Unnecessary Dilemma

0512-united-bamboo-cat-calendar-casting-2013-fa

My mother in law once asked me about places that she could buy clothes or blouses from, at low price, so I replied, ‘Eh, mak kan orang sini (Muar). Patutnye mak la lagi tau’.  But since she really didn’t know, I tried to name a few places around here that I could recommend her, but nothing really came to mind. Here’s why! Because all this while, I’ve been shopping online!! Haha. (Berbalik pada cerita mother in law tadi, we finally brought her to Wetex Parade and bought a couple blouses there. Our treat, so kalau mahal pun xpa la pasal memang susah nak carik yang cantik dan murah kan.. Quality comes with the price. Hihi)

My favourite online shopping website is of course, ThePoplook.com. Till today, I’ve spent over a thousand buying dresses and blouses from that famous line. They’re just my taste! Hihi. Senang beli online sebab xyah round round jalan penat kaki kalau x jumpa apa kita nak kan.. Penat carik and still x jumpa, fed-up, boleh main Facebook terus, or better yet, shut down laptop, tido saja. Haha

Look at those!

All the dresses and tops I bought from ThePoplook.com. Hubby said I’m a crazy shopper. Naahh, there are many out there who are way crazier than me.

Just now, when I was browsing the website (the most dangerous activity for me because I always end up buying something), I saw these caftans. There are three designs, but these two are my favs. I’m just torn apart between them and I can’t pick one! Help!

I’m more to Lime Print, but Light Brown pun cantik jugak especially when I pair it with my dark purple long skirt. But I belum pernah ada baju colour lime tu. Takkanla kena beli BOTH pulaaaak though I really love caftans. Caftans are the best! They are comfy and flowy, perfct to beat the heat nowadays. It’s just been extra hot for the weather right now, kan? Tak tahan nk pakai baju fit2 lagi. So uncomfortable. Kejap je badan dah melekit macam hape.

Okay, so, which ONE??

p/s- Hubby said, ‘shopping selagi boleh, nanti dah ada anak kena berkorban sikit duit tu for baby.’

p/s/s – No, I’m not pregnant yet.
