Malaysia day

I celebrated Malaysia Day for the first time, away from home. Nasib KL pun cuti sudah sekarang time 16th Sept. Kalau nda mana ada cuti kan. Started the morning with a Zumba session at the Free Market PJ. 





Interesting market concept. People come together and bring their stuff to give away. Macam tamu tapi nda payah bayar. Disebabkan percuma then of course paling capat la abis segala barang.

I didn't stay lama-lama sana sebab hujan, then sambung pigi workout di gym lagi. My sister is doing internship in KL now so siok la ada geng sini. For now.


And later in the evening, we attended the Moonshine 9th Anniversary Special at the Laundry, Curve. Awesome event. Get to see the who's who people in the art/music scene in KL.


Also to support my friend, Nadhira and Jin for their awesome set.


Happy Malaysia Day! 

First Wedding Anniversary

Time flies. 140913. And now a year later, I finally get to stay in the same place and the same house with the mister. A lot of people do not know how long ( It's almost ten years since we started dating ) we have been on a long distance relationship even after we are married. Yes, lepas kawin pun masih jauh-jauh. And yet I was bombarded with the question on why we are not having kids yet. 

It's kinda sad to know that people always generalize and now entering the 1st year married status, eyebrows are being raised and more hush hush talk behind our backs and things are looking as if we are not fertile. Up to that extent!!! Oh well, people gonna say what they want. It is our life that we gonna live.

All I can say, I am grateful for all the blessings up until now. Looking for the infinite years to be together.

Wedding anniversary dinner at Gangnam 88 Restaurant in Solaris Dutamas sebab memang kami trip Kuria. Haha.

Yummy! But if i were to recommend this place to others. Nahhhh.. Nda juga la must try. Ada lagi tempat lebih sedap makanan dia. Haha.


And of course dessert time at Caffe Bene, the Pat Bingsoo. The Korean Summer Dessert.

It's on my back

I remember last time when I did my first tattoo and I blogged about it, I think it was Chegu Carol who said to me that it will be more and that's not gonna be the only one.

Hey, it's true.

During the final week of my service as a teacher in SMKT, before going to be a full time student, I wanted to do something that should remind me that I am always an educator. ( I have the feeling that after leaving the school for quite some time, I might not want to be a teacher anymore in the future )

Live to inspire and be inspired

These are the words that have kept me going in teaching for the past 6 (coming to 7 ) years. So, it should be permanently there.

Before


After

Hahaha, ini kana tampal di belakang. Macam menstruation pad pula kan.. Yeah, it did bleed a little.

Now. 


Mo tahan hati juga la mo tahan daripada mo garu tu belakang while it was healing.

And it has been quite some time since my first tattoo, so masa mo kana tattoo tu belakang bulih-bulih juga la bikin sengsara sakit dia especially yang dakat itu spine. T_T

Adjusting

Macam lama la betul sudah padahal baru 2 minggu lebih sini. 

I am so used to having a lot of people and cats and dogs around me at home and now suddenly it's all silence and just the fan circling above my head.

Mau masak lunch pun tiada motivation. So this is lunch most of the time. Ahahahaha. Gaya pemalas tu ba. Memang terunggul sekali.

 
Traffic is a major headache here and boy, I tell you; kalau satu hari nda salah jalan nda sah. I am cursing like mad all the time. Be it the road junctions, the toll, the queue, uncivilized drivers. 

Generally KL drivers are all very inhumane. They hardly give way, they compete for junctions, they don't know what's a signal light. It's the attitude I-only-care-about-myself-go-to-hell-with-the-others. I am scared I am slowly turning to be one of them soon. Gone or the days when people just drive slow slow macam itu pick up from Mengkabong that travels at 40km/h only. Definitely that one di Sabah saja ada.

Ada juga yang bagus punya driver but very rare. So if you found one on the road, I will not only give out a thankful prayer, I will sing for God in gratitude. 

Yeah, like seriously.

School again

This week is the registration week. And with that, i am officially a student again.


How am I gonna cope with all this? Am i really ready for this? 


Ok, tabahkan hati. Walaupun baru nampak banyak sikit tulisan macam ada tanda tanda panik sudah. Baiklah. Tenang. Tenang.

I am opting for Cuti Belajar Tanpa Gaji. Yes, memang miskin ni. Terpaksa la kerja part time to make ends meet. Kedai kupi punya waitress ka. Kerja kedai potostet ka. Ajar tusyen ka.

But my no pay leave is still pending for approval and thus making more anxious. I am like on a neither here nor there situation now because i am actually at the mercy of my principal. If i dont get any black and white concerning my cuti by the end of this month, i might have to go back and work again. 

Capat la lulus cuti! Tulung la.

In the meantime, i got the interview for the offer for Cuti Belajar Gaji Penuh. Ah, itu lagi punya headache juga. I gotta prepare a research proposal in which i have zero idea on that. Mau mimpi mimpi dulu la mengarang ni.

I am not sure on my chances for the full pay leave (which will only be known the result by end of the year). But, you just have to try your luck and do the best you can right?

Jadi... Untuk memastikan loan kereta boleh dibayar ini bulan, saya kerja part time jadi cleaner dulu. RM60 for 4 hours (that's the day maid rate here). Hahaha. I need to clean house twice a week for a month so that I can pay my car loan.

Sakit juga la pinggang untuk cuci rumah bertingkat tingkat. Nasib juga ada training before this kasi bersih rumah sendiri.

Transition

Usually if you move to a new place, how long do you give yourself to be in a transition period?

It's like a crash course happening for me right now. Currently on a transition from Borneo to the west. Kampung girl roaming around the city. 

I would like to blog more about this once the dust settled. Too many things to take in.

Leaving my job

Leaving my hometown

Leaving my routine back home

Missing my family back home 

Missing my friends 

Missing my students

Bringing my stuff over

Being a student again

So many things. 

And yeah, to those who are still in the dark. Now, you have the answer. I am officially moving to Kuala Lumpur for good. My husband is based here. It's surreal to know that the day I move is finally here.


My mom and my sisters are with me during my first weekend here. Masih happy, then they go back KK. Sedih lagi balik.

The mister isn't around for the first week of my transfer so I kinda have to deal everything on my own. He is in US for training. Thank God, my sis is doing her internship in KL now, so it is not that bad lah.

Ok, good night. Another day to adjust tomorrow and more sorting out of my personal stuff.
