* Goodbye 2004 *

The year ended with two.....long days of staff meeting.... Informative, enriching but mentally draining. So much details on the different protocols...the school really want to lay down all the rules and set the motion right from the start...So first day of school ...lessons start....we mean business...

I'm a form teacher of a sec 4 (academic) class.....fuyoh....help me!!..Heard there are groups of "malay gangsters" and "ah bengs" in the class..Hope i wont be caught in between a racial riot or something..haha....Looks like soon i'd be talking like mats and minahs....Niwae just had a look at their profiles and family background..... most come from single parent family with financial probs...whats new... I'm quite psyched up to face the challenge though....wish me all the best.

My workstation (still empty for now)....and a gd time to get rid of the stuffed toys in my room

* The one with the "paper-thin" stuffs *

Letters....written on beautiful flowered papers (sometimes just plain tkgs foolscap).....filled with teenage emotions....cryouts....bitching.......sealed with promises of eternal friendship....
or messages like "keep this a secret or DIE!!"...basically just full of CRAP!!



I thought reading my diary was bad enough...but reading these letters was worse.....Gazillion times worse!! Me and long time bestfriend effe had a letter reading session over dinner...laughing our heads off over the things we said/did... Pages and pages of them....sometimes with some "animations" to illustrate our points.....and there was even a MAP or two to accurately place certain pple in specific places...(gosh..we were that looney!)

Reading one of the leters she wrote to me.....

It just go to show that we had too much free time...to engage in such nonsense-smonsense..instead of making better use of time...STUDYING or something...haha...
Effe brought along the letters I wrote to her (some even posted mind you)....and reading the contents...OMIGOD...felt like burning them....
Girls will be girls in one way or another... but was I so gurl...!!!ewwwww.....all mushy and love-stricken.....*save me * save me*!!

I guess ....most teenage girls write letters to their friends as a way of sharing or expressing how they feel...(or passing top-secret information)
Hmm...Dunno about this generation M kids though... now with msn..icq...and sms....perhaps writing letters are a thing of the past...for those devonian periods.....

Oh ya...btw effe was incessantly promoting this paper-thin prata....coated with sweet honey....*thumbs up*

* The one with lots and lots of Holiday "activities" *

True to my words of holidaying to the max...i spent the last few days with lots of activities....First and foremost i went to watch VEER-ZAARA again!!!!!!
With two darling frenz (mama ana and mummy effe)....and a lil gal...and they were tearing and sobbing through the movie....while the lil gal fell asleep through half of the movie......Gotta to say that i am so going to buy the vcd once it comes out *nutz*

Next dropped by my aunt's newly opened food stall......


Located @tampines (pasar bulat)..where the former al-amin restaurant was.....
I heard that for the opening ceremony ...Taufik s'pore idol just might be making an appearance.....Meanwhile the gemz tried to glitz the place....(jadi minah2 kedai kopi)


Then later that night we went to our usual night hang-out spot..the east coast lagoon for the delish roti-john..And we were entertained my a very young usher singing and dancing YEAH....with his "hunky" brothers also singing along....hehe... want to catch these entertainers??? Go to stall 56....hahahhaa

The following day had lunch with family @Bali Thai....actually the occasion was that my parents wanted to treat my grandparents (both sides) to an end of year lunch tingy... But in the end more pple tagged along...my aunt from australia



and my australian cuzs.....


Cute toddlers affifah and farah

Ohh...those cheeks...and yes it includes his too...

Lastly met up with my gemz AGAIN after the lunch to celebrate nora's bday......didnt take pics...but i'm sure u'll find them at lulu
s blog....hahahaha....okies so dat all the "activites" for now....

Meanwhile i'll leave u with more pics of Baby Afifah...who they all say look like me when i was young..awwww...such cuteness........

* The one with the Egyptian "princesses" *

From the recent hindi film craze(actually still ongoing) to now added Egyptian mania.......all from the mid-asian continent...For a while there was feeling-feeling staring @the egyptian pyramids.....

But these are only miniatures

Welcomed back our egyptian gem with "style".....who brought home with her precious treasures all the way from Alexandria...Cairo...Bahrain

We had a whiff of desert rose.... our new egyptian scent filled in a delicate....traditional and crystal bottle...


Also had our treasure boxes adorned with "precious gemz"....specially for gemz like us.........thanx to egyptian princess the second....

Egyptian princesses.....all available except the one in pink..hehe

* Veer-Zaara *

Veer Zaara:

So whats the movie about?? A Indian man and a Pakistani girl fall in love ....and their love is separated by the borders (indian n pakistan sour ties)....and she (preity zinta) is to be married to a Pakistani politician while her heart yearns for Veer (shahrukh khan).....the clip shows her thoughts and desires on the day of her wedding............



MAIN YAHAAN HOON off movie Veer-Zaara


jaanam dekh lo miT ga'ii.n duuriyaa.n
... Darling, look around; the distance between us is dispelled.
mai.n yahaa.n huu.n yahaa.n huu.n yahaa.n huu.n yahaa.n
I'm here, I'm here, I'm here, here!

kaisii sarhade.n kaisii majbuuriyaa.n
What borders are there now? What obstacles?
mai.n yahaa.n huu.n yahaa.n huu.n yahaa.n huu.n yahaa.n
I'm here, I'm here, I'm here, here!

tum chupa na sakogii mai.n voh raaz huu.n
I'm the secret that you can't hide;
tum bhula na sakogii voh a.ndaaz huu.n
I'm the impulse that you can't forget.

guu.njtaa huu.n jo dil me.n to hairaan ho kyo.n
When I echo in your heart, why are you surprised?
mai.n tumhaare hii dil kii to aawaaz huu.n
I'm your heart's very voice.
sun sako to suno dhaRkano.n kii zubaan
If you can hear it, then listen to the language of your heartbeat.


The more i listen to the music and watch the video...the more i loooove this movie...and yes lulu...have to agree with u shahrukh khan is like extra charming in this movie *melts*..... (hmm...i *melt* quite a lot nowdays huh..soon u'll just see a puddle of me lying around somewhere)

Some pple must be wondering what is the hype about all these hindi movies....they think its all dance (round the coconut tree n downhill)...melodrama...and love tragedies...

Well...actually all the above IS true..and more (except the coconut tree part) ......and to actually fully appreciate the movie you have to appreciate the songs and lyrics coz they play such important roles in the whole movie....so.. for those of you who watch hindi movies and skip the songs....you are not truly enjoying the essence of the movie so its no wonder you dun understand the hindi movie hype....haha ...and so says the bollywood fan *me*me*...

The songs are actually depiction of their dreams.....and deepest desires...so kind of singing and dancing their thoughts out loud....So in a way it helps us viewers also "act out" our dreams and all....things you wish you said....(and they do it so poetically and beautifully) and feelings you wished you'd show ( and they do it with so much passionate and love)....ok time for drama-queen to end her little entry.... i feel like watching veer-zaara again.........!!!!!!!

* *

Had a big breakfast.....its quite a big thing for me considering the fact that I seldom have breakfast (since by the time i wake up its time for lunch...)



This is the time to savour leisurely breakfast....once school starts..i'll have to say goodbye to such simple pleasures...

Oh i'll miss u holiday...you r not even gone yet and i already fear the day you leave me....So since you are here with me right now...i'll absorb every inch and every ounce of you....i'll squeeze all the holiday goodness out of you....Yet etched at the back of my mind.....I reign the day that "they" callously grab you away from me....the pain will tear me apart....my heart will ache for you.... You just mean too much to me for me to let you go...ooo...what will i ever do without you?? ...sigh...need i say more...once you are gone "they" will try to make me forget you with all the work "they" pile on me.."bury yourself with work and you'll forget what you've lost" thats way "they'll" say....
But I will never forget you...the more they try to take me away from you...the more i burn for you.....At times it hurts me so much that i'll go to the doctor for medication to ease my pain....I am thankful the doctor noes just what will cure this pain...no modern medicine...no jabs.....only the chance I get to meet you!!....even if only for a day....sometimes two...but never more than that...But the guilt i feel when i meet you during those times.....but it was worth....it was all worth....

But even after you are gone this time round.....we'll meet again soon won't we.....it will be short meetings ..but nevertheless I will get to see you again holiday...Oo...why am I wasting my time talking about the future when I have you here...now.......I'll make this last 2 weeks with you...a time we'll never forget...We will enjoy each other won't we?.....we'll make memories....we'll have fun....ooo...it makes my heart pump ....leaping with excitement....thinking of all the fun we'll have.... but time is running away from us....so fast...but at least i still have you here with me.......for now......
OOO..I hate you...I hate what you are doing to me.....why is it so hard for me to be with you forever....BUt no matter how i say I hate you.......once you are with me again ...i forget the pain of leaving you....until the time comes for you to leave me again......all my life we've had this love-hate relationship...but over these times....i've learned to love you more..... i've learnt to savour the moments i get with you....so forgive me if i have not been at my best.......i'll really make full use of ur presence, though short-lived...but at least i can still have you...thats better than not having you at all....

* Aik!!...masih Raya ke? *

Now that i'm already on the ball....blogging and all...(hey that rhymes)...Time to update gambar2 "basi"....No lah..the pple in the pics are all "hunks" and "babes"...so mana leh basi kan..kan???*rolls eyes*.


Raya 2004

As usual....had the mass jalan raya with my darlin frenz and guys...Lots of laughter and foto taking...Let me try to recall those candid moments...Lets see..there was the usual food "attack" @ every house...and the traditional "samping wearing session" @ the first house....


Then there was the traditonal group fotos at EVERY house ...and the trick is to take group fotos just before we leave..well its like a signal tt we r moving on to the next house...
It goes something like"Eh ..we've been here long enough..Lets take a group foto!!"..And when the guys (who always seem to have their eyes glued to the tv screen) dun seem to want to make their move..the gals will start arranging ourselves in "group foto positions" and then ......SNAP OUR OWN PICS....(minus the guys)..that


Then one of the houses turned into a photoshoot studio...sempat ambik "family potrait"


Lepas tu tgah feeling2 nak ambik gambar couple......


*Tup*tup*...tersalah "partner" pulak!!!


And That was the spark and the start of the "gay" relationships.....maybe togther with the fact that the guys were busy "entertaining themselves"....Hahahaa...



We ended the day with the episode of "man-boy" with the macaroon....

Now you see it....


Now you don't....

So that was a fun raya visiting...till next year....adios...

* Singgah selalu *

Its been ages since i've updated..... you know... me and blogging have our "on and off" seasons..
Lets just say that the blog is like a stop or "persinggahan"...where as i'm going on through my journey in life ....I will stopover now and then to give updates...but smtimes i'll just give it "the stop" a miss.
Kadang2 singgah....kadang2 singgah selalu...kadang2 tak singgah langsung..haha...(so lately tak slalu lah aku singgah di sini)..Haha...whatever.. me and my theories and philosophies....what crap!


Well I guess i'm just really lazy to update even though there is actually quite a lot going on...Because perhaps i'm just too lazy to gather my thoughts and type them out into logical sentences and sequences...

I've actually lots of pics to post....but i'll do it slowly...once I gain back my blogging momentum...For now the latest update is on my recent "persinggahans"..

Sunday night me and frenz managed to singgah di tempat yang tidak selalu kami singgahi...... Restoran Singgah selalu JB (hey thats the real name of the restaurant ok).....Didnt take pics there...coz I was busy eating delicious CHILLI CRAB...it was by far the most succulent and meaty crab i've ever eaten...

So today I went to Johor again...alah negara yang paling selalu aku singgah.......dan juga singgah lagik pat Restoran Singgah selalu tu....dari tak selalu singgah jadi singgah selalu pulak....haha...

What!! Is that belimbing juice? *wink*


What!! Is that nasi goreng kampung? *wink*wink* (alamak sakit pulak mata kenyit-mengeyit)

Lepas tu singgah pulak di tempat yang kita selalu singgah untuk GROCERY SHOPPING...Giant lah!! (hmmm ..actually more of junk food shopping)


Dunno why but we so love to go to supermarkets....(especially ME.... coz its so cold, clean and convenient...unlike WET markets!!)....
Somehow the fun of wheeling down the different ailes with the shopping cart still thrills me...

Check out the "thrilled" look...haha

Feel like a little girl once again going all googoo gaga over the colurful ..alluring junk on the shelves....
Only this time I dun have to go "Mummy can I buy this...or that?" ...coz I'm finally financially independant and can grab anything I fancy!! woohoo....

"Haha...No one can stop me now!!!"


"...Or him!!!"


Happy shopper's look



And then it was time to pay........and pay

But a die-hard shopperholic like me never say NO to more shopping ...
We left Giant...a happy couple....ready for more action!!


After that kita singgah pulak pat Angsana.... where I did more of my retail therapy..The die-hard shopperholic does shopping ranging from food to clothes.....and even shoes..all in a day....


So what does a bored guy do when his girl is deep into shopping??....He Takes silly pictures!!

That wraps up my persinggahan entry....singgah menyinggah ni penat jugak tau...So to those yg selalu2 singgah ke sini...singgah lah lagi...singgah jangan tak singgah...singgah lah selalu....
