kalau pening kepala + batuk kering + sakit tekak + selesema tu maksudnya apa?

Sebenarnya saya kini berada dalam keadaan dimana tekak saya rasa macam ada kertas pasir, bunyi batuk sayang "kong kong" dan bukan "cough cough" seperti biasa, hidung saya berair sejak dua tiga hari lalu, badan saya tibia-tiba banyak area-area yang gatal (I mandi la Abah) dan kepala saya asyik rasa macam nak pitam.

Jadi, sebab sedikit risau, saya pun google lah swine flu (which is all the hype right now but is something i tak tahu much about sebab seperti yang telah ditekankan oleh Abah, saya penduduk universe yang ignorant)

Berikut adalah syptoms swine flu yang famous tersebut:

  • fever, which is usually high, but unlike seasonal flu, is sometimes absent
  • cough
  • runny nose or stuffy nose
  • sore throat
  • body aches
  • headache
  • chills
  • fatigue or tiredness, which can be extreme
  • diarrhea and vomiting, sometimes, but more commonly seen than with seasonal flu

ternyata, saya ada beberapa symptoms yang tertera diatas.
so....cane ni?
kena quarantine kah?

a love that lasts a lifetime: my tribute to an exceptional woman

my hero

In spite of all the articles, verse and arguments I've read and heard for as long as I have lived, I still could never fully admit that men are stronger or more capable than women. I have been proven right countless of times without fail. This article is a tribute to two woman who has, time and time again, proven worthy of high expectations and respect so to those who despise when women are put in a higher position than men, please stop reading this post right about now.

Of all the women I have known in my lifetime, my mom is by far the one I look up to most. I know that many will say quite simply that it's only natural for me to say that as I am her daughter and what daughter isn't proud of her mother, but she truly is deserving. My mother is the type of woman who works hard to provide for her family, ensure that everybody is well taken care of and is happy. Never once have I seen her put herself before any of us, only rejecting our requests when it is necessary or when what is asked is ludicrous and uncalled for. I owe to her my life. She has taught me many things that I have seen other mothers fail to do. She taught me to respect, to be independent and to work hard and earn deserving pay instead of only asking for cash. She taught me that nothing comes by easily and at some point during my childhood, she taught me to be strong as a woman and to fight for things that are rightfully mine. Through her experiences, I learned that when things are not easy, i should never give up. I believe in my own capabilities and have a greater self-esteem today thanks to her. She never directly said to my face to chase my dreams but by never undermining them, she told me that I could be anything and anybody that I aspire to be and that who I become in the future is of my own making.

She has provided me with more than I could possibly hope for and until today is still teaching me without fail. She is the best a girl could ask for and I honestly have never wished for more than what she is. No material goods or pools of money could replace her.

She is my million dollar gem and I'm a millionaire because of her.

bila Clan Merican menyerang

Last weekend, my family (as in the whole load of Mericans minus few) and I made our way to Pasir Hor, Kota Bharu, Kelantan sebab nak pegi meminang (Farah, i believe you now know this word now, right?) anak orang. It was a rollercoaster ride in more ways than 10.

9 hours on the road
and when we finally made it there that fateful Friday at around 1 a.m., we decided to go to Wakaf Che Yeh as if we weren't tired. Unluckily for us, they were closed so we had to look for fruits for the hantaran elsewhere sebab buah yang kitorang bawak dah rosak and busuk. That night, we also found out that THE CAKE which was also for the hantaran had landslides in it due to the rough and heaty journey. Therefore, i had to call my trusty but not there tour guide to find out where we might find a cake to replace the landslide-y one. Mr. Ridzuan told us the location so we went scouting that night so that it would be easier for us to find the shop the next day. But WAIT! The deal does NOT end there! (sila baca dalam nada SmartShop menjual barangan di TV) Walaupun kami yang pergi berjalan tengah-tengah malam ini telah pun makan, kami membuat keputusan untuk makan LAGI (seperti biasa, kami memang tak pernah kenyang). Dan the roti canai that we god, it was perfect.

the landslide-y cake and the lesu-ed, lebam-ed, lecur-ed fruits

Keesokan harinya, we sent the future husband out with his father and mother and one of our aunts to find a cake to replace the landslide-y one after a breakfast of nasi putih dengan kuah apa ntah tak tahu plus ayam goreng yang sangat lah sedap (orang kelantan memang makan nasi dengan banyaknye seharian) And so...this cake story is very long so i won't elaborate. In short, we found a plain cheesecake dan telah mengamanahkan my mom to make it pretty. We loved the results, definitely :)

the new and improved cake and fruits
After some MORE drama that involved some crying on my part (silly,silly girl) we went to pinang the very pretty Anis in high hopes that she'd make a good addition to our excessively loud, boisterous and psychotic (in a good way) family. The whole thing went fairly well (especially because they served us really good nasi dagang) and though it included some teasing, shy giggles and the usual "konon-konon malu" stuff, it ended with a set date for the akad (see, this is a BIG deal because he's the first cousin to be married). That night we went to Wakaf Che Yeh after an Okay-rated dinner and I tagged along as my mommy borong-ed tudung bawal and jersey tiruan.

the rombongan

Sunday morning started early as my mommy apeared on TV :) on a 6 a.m. show (who the hell watches this show?) and after we were all ready, Anis and family joined our chaotic one for a breakfast of the-ever-blue nasi kerabu AND MORE nasi dagang (YUMMY!) plus roti bakar. I am not proud to say this but I found heaven when the waiter brought out a huge bowl FILLED with telur long it has been since I've had one of those (sorry to disappoint guys, this is my only fault when it comes to endangered species) and due to my excitement, i knocked over my glass of iced tea and it fell onto the table and spilled onto my lap but still i sat there smiling, wet from the waist down, devouring my turtle egg. and after i changed (which i performed in the car with my brother standing guard) into not-so-clean-but-definitely-dry-clothes (which were my long sleeved kinda tight t-shirt and my brothers jeans which made me look like a rapstar or more a confused pengkid in tudung) we made our way to Pasar Siti Khadijah and there, i witnessed what it really means when they say "BORONG". By God, mothers can really BUY! I bet the shop owners were getting a headache although they were secretly pleased. I mean, my mom alone spent 800++ in ONE SHOP!

Anis yang konon-konon bahagia padahal dah penat dan pening melayang kerenah kitorang

Sebab ada some time constraints, there were several places we didn't get to go, food we didn't get to eat (itu sebenarnya) but we HOPE that when we go there for the wedding in October, we'll have a little more coordination and less drama so we can spend more quality time on SIYUPER (bak kata Nana) food :)

We FINALLY reached KL at approximately 11.30 pm, which technically made it a 10 hour trip.



ya Allah, syukur alhamdulillah God you have answered my prayers....
I'm getting wireless in MY ROOM!!!!!!!!!!!

this girl is officially H.A.P.P.Y
