That feeling.

That feeling when you get the same understanding with your lecturer. This why I miss school. I dont feel stupid. I get to feel my brain running around looking for answers. 

If only this dude was around during my Power System Communication class back in school. I would be moreeee interested to go to work. But then again back then I could not imagine what the lessons are about. But still, this dude's method of teaching was superb ! Its like learning mathematics all over again but the topic was about distance protection. 
Now I get what the zones are all about. 

Yeah, it is quite sad that only NOW I know how the transformer windings are drawn. Well, better late than never.

PS: i miss school especially you mathematics T_T

The Cat Lover The Frog Lover

Strictly loves the soft toy of it. Not the real thing but I guess that was during those hingusan school days. I have no idea why I loved the frog. That species is on top of my gross list. Sorry amphibians, you and me, we are never going to get along well, like ever. 

Enough intro for the title. This is just a random life update post between this cat lover and this used-to-be frog lover. We used to talk about, well know, what did we used to talk about Mia? I think I have Dory's Amnesia. Lately I have a lot of trouble remembering things and No I am not getting old yet. Anyways, yesterday chat made me felt like we've leveled up in life. Its just a brief chat about a lipstick but it made me smile and made me forget the 3 hours drive back home (usually 45 mins). I'm savoring every little things we do and talk about because that's what I do and kept me being sane. 
Pretty right? The color. The brightness. The person (kenyit mata). 

And its flour-less! Yeah that's my one rule for applying lipstick. No tepung feeling lipstick allowed. Haha. And knowing this, she excitedly share me the info! I Love You ketat ketat! 

PS: yes i'll be updating this dusty blog as frequent as I can.
PSS: the first one is entirely for you bebigurl!

Knock knock, hellooo traffic!

Helllooo traffic jam!
Hellooo early morning rush hour!
Hellooo rules and regulations!
Hellooo dressing up formally!
Hellooo bosses!
Hellooo KPI's!
Hellooo audits and stuffs!
Hellooo big appetite!
Hellooo big temptations!
Hellooo evening rush hours!

and Helloo working industry!

Yes, I am now officially considering myself as one of those 100,000 people, ehem, belia, entering this new world, a world where all the worries in life bulking up one by one, according to the responsibility that we chose ourselves. Gone are the late wake up routines or late night burning the midnight oil while increasing your eyesight level. Gone are the era of going to "vocal training" in the middle of the day or night during weekdays. Now I listen intensely to the traffic updates on air, YES, i do that earnestly (acting like i know the roads mentioned) and I tend to follow the DJ's tips with anything related to the office; ie; tips on staying awake in the office and so on.

Aaaaand these are my first week story! well, I do not know how long will it last for a weekly update but here's to it while it last! The story begins from Sunday, maybe because I was too nervous, or scared, I woke up at 6 on a Sunday thinking it was Monday and I was late for work! Jumped out of bed for nothing and laughed by myself *giggles* (okay this is so maya, note to self, not to write that again) SO, first day! Papa woke up 1/2 hour early than he's normal routine to make sure I'm awake and gave me a good luck hug in his pyjama before going back upstairs and getting prepared himself, since due to Bangsar, I am the first one to leave for work. Mama on the other hand, took the liberty of preparing fried spaghetti for breakfast! SCORE! I could finish the whole packet of it, there's some addiction to me when it comes to fried spaghetti!


Thank you Papa Mama for the lovely thought, I hope I could always be the daughter you would be proud of! Nina, now now, willingly helping me, despite the  princess-ordering-behaviour, for my first day photoshoot. Esya will always be Esya. Thank you baby girl, I love ya !

\

My morning routine drive, now I am one of those who would need to go through the bizarre traffic jam of Federal Highway. 


The 6th floor cubicle, whilst waiting for the next order, spent the rest of the day here.


SCADA & EMS cubicle, more privacy and a bit more peaceful environment :)


This was beef bread lasagne, mama first attempt! How I wish someday I could be as a great of a cook as mama is!, Even at first trial, she scored it! me? pfft!


Our first pinned notice! hahahahaha okay I know this was childish but of course you would be excited for the first time of eveything right?

In summary of the first week, basically had nothing to do, we were in the introduction phase, hence, not too detailed explanation from the colleague, just a brief story of the department jobscope. The people seems nice, and the office were cozy! Not to mention, how active and chatty the YEDP whatsapp group was for this past week. okay, YEDP stands for Young Executive Development Program. Can't wait to meet the rest of them next week! Slowly learning and adapting myself in this world. I however, have not yet feel the moment where I can call myself an engineer, hoping that day and the level of confidence would come soon. InsyaAllah, Amin.

Saranghae Beehah unnieeee


Saeng chuka hamnida
Saeng chuka hamnida
Saranghae Beehah unnieeee
Saeng chuka hamnida!!!


You would have turned 25 today, I would have begged you to accompany me shopping, picking out beautiful blouses and formal attires. I would have asked you lots of things on make ups and shawls and stuff. you were always so easy to talk to, now I am slowly learning in dressing up decently. How I wish you were here to see me. I would have asked you to go karok one last time before entering this new world. I would have definitely copied your dress code because I really adore your confidence.

All of these would have and could been are just empty thoughts held inside.
Missing you so much.
Saranghae Unnie.

Yours sincerely,
your dongsaeng

9/11/12

Hey! its the most anticipated day of your entire degree life, all those sweats and tears finally paid off, GRADUATION DAY! Its the day you are allowed to get hyped about on dressing up w/o getting rolled eyes since it is YOUR day, well except for the wedding day, but that is miles away, so this is the first step to be all crazy and stuff. 

For me, I've just bought myself a new gold glitter shawl to match my raya kurung and heels. Little that I know that my robe was in yellow stripes, so yeah, I was in the royal colour that day! Just a recap of my past "award days"; what I called for the days of the important results day, ie, UPSR, PMR, SPM. I think I have no luck with those days, I've always missed those exact moments where you share your success, happiness with your friends. It was either I was late, or was not there when the teachers call out name of those who scored all A's. For SPM, I did not score perfectly, but at least I had the chance to face the tension of waiting for my name to be called by the teachers. Lastly, the degree graduation day, it was a bitter-sweet moment graduating with only 10+ friends from the whole batch. Story of my life, lulz but anyhow, it was an amazing day. 

Did you know that the tassel, the string thingie on your graduation cap has their own definition? I saw it from GLEE, in their graduation episode, they would place the tassel from right to left after they received their scrolls from the principal. The significance of the tassel is to certify you as officially a graduate. (thanks to papa, wikipedia and some random website for the info) Here is my facial interpretation of the tassel definition.

Right -> Left
Done with studies -> Officially graduated

I would also like to thank my lovely family, whom willingly waited for the ceremony, in Malaysian hot weather, to congratulate me and giving me flowers. Your presence alone was enough for me, I was so touched with everyone of them who came and wished from afar. I LOVE YOU LAH! what do you do when you have LOTS LOTS LOTS LOTS LOTS LOTS LOTS of pictures and you want to show them all? MONTAGE~! (thanks to lisma for introducing me to flipagram) Here are some of our family jump shots! It was epic seeing them all! I know this is me being selfish, but how I wish everybody was here.

A few days later, I am back in UNITEN for my convo photoshoot with the gang. I would like to take this opportunity to thank NAJIB for being the best-patient-sporting-photographer a friend could ever wished for! I'm not that photogenic and really does not know how to pose and stuff, I'd be so awkward in such pictures. So here are some of the thousands great moments caught on camera!

video

Awesome props kudos to Najib!

No motive here, just fooling around.

So blessed to have known every one of them, I may not be the most subtle friend, but fyi, you guys will always have a special place in my heart! and Here's a flipagram dedicated to every one of you!

video

Yes, you can count on me like 1 2 3 and I'll be there, always :)

Make You Feel My Love

Okay, I planned to have the posts(of how I spend my 2013) all in chronological order but I got excited for this one, so yeah, here's an exception. Fresh from the oven as they say. First time Ever, uploading such things. Always thought of it, but never had the Guts to actually do it, but yeah, I finally did it.

Learned this song from Nina,
and loved it even more when I heard Sam Kelly from Britain's Got Talent sang it beautifully. *tears*

This was just for fun since now I am one of those unemployed belia's. OMG that phase is here(more on these sheenanigans later). So here's a little portion of the song by yours truly. :')

The pictures were there just so I could use the guitar recordings as a video to combine with the vocals. I dont have or own or even knows how to operate those sounds mixer and yada yada yada, so this was 100% published by the loyal yet sometimes a headache windows movie maker. YES. Live with it.

video

PS: Dear Husband, I know you are great, that's why I love you, but you'll be more dashing if you could sing me this song, on our wedding day perhaps? That would be breath taking ;)

Island Hopperz 1.0

This is the story of how it all begins. The branding of Island Hopperz started with this tale.

Once upon a time,a group of 13 friends went for a quick getaway, in the middle of their hectic semester life for three days of fun and fun and fun, not leisure, most definitely, just fun. Thanks to Qila and Noni for bringing up this idea and did not turn out to be just omong-omong kosong ! and through this journey, I've met and made some new friends. Let's go down memory lane and rekindle some memories for me to share. ohya! our first journey was to the Land of Eagle, Langkawi!

We left our cars at Faiz's and took the LRT to Pudu station. Hamim came a day later since she could not afford to miss her lab session. In my defense, the last time I rode the LRT was when they still use paper tickets, so I was a bit excited to use the chip coins, yeah, just a bit.


The dude in the white, red, blue and black were definitely a stranger to me at the moment this picture was taken, yes they are the new friends that I've made and yeah, they're alright.



owh owh, I think since this trip, our friendship grew a lot deeper kan guys? 
The red hair is Echo and the middle is Najib.


I think this was my first bus ride going for a vacation with friends (bus to genting is still considered quite close right?) and also counting out the school trips (duhhh). Basically, this is the overview of the journey, LRT - BUS -FERRY - VAN. Thousands of gratitude to Qila for sponsoring our 3 days 2 night stay at the apartment and Faiz for getting us great price of renting the van and also as our tour guide for the whole trip! So, first agenda, GO-CART ! and the winner was.... Reen ? I think.


Next stop, BERAS TERBAKAR, since we were nearby the place and the boys need to perform their Friday prayers and there's a mosque nearby. Legend has it, hurmmmm not quite sure the legend behind this historical place but there's still some pieces of the burnt rice left for public view. Let's ask our emcee's/host/artist/performer/model what this place was all about!


Too bad this was just a picture, unfortunately I was not able to upload their video =.= Too bad though, it was a nice and funny video, curse you over-sized-video-and-the-software-always-crash-when-I-want-to-resize-the-video. Moving on, we were on our way to the airport to pick up the running-late-girl-whom-has-to-go-to-her-lab and passed through this beautiful paddy field when suddenly we decided to stop. YES, SUDDENLY. you could call it a spontaneous response when someone asked, "Nak turun tak?" and everybody were like "NAAAAAAK". Atiq, pulled over and we had some photoshoots while enjoying the beautiful green view of the paddy field. It was exquisite, and it was my first trip to a paddy field, I mean literally, walking in between them, sorrylah, not among the perks of being a city girl :p

The cool thing was, while we were busy getting full of ourselves, taking pictures and what not, an elder approach us and ask of our origins. We had a little conversation with him and it turns out he was poisoning the "ketam batu" from killing off the paddy, I assume it was his field, maybe. Apparently, this crabs are a parasite to the paddy field and the best way to kill them is by crashing them. He was kind enough to catch one to show to us. 

Thank you  sir for the knowledge and your time, it was really kind of you. 


Their body was like a glass. So beautiful yet so dangerous.


Our photographers of the trip!


Me, as the official videographer of the trip!


I just love this shot :')

After picking up Hamim, we went for dinner and of all the time in the world, I had a mini gastric attack, yes talk about perfect timing right? Luckily it went away after dinner and we head out to the beach to set out the campfire~! Now as promised, whatever happens that night, stays there. Hence, to honor the truce, I'll just post some photos of what happened and let your imagination run wild XD




My first marshy! 


It rained that evening, so it was not easy to find dry wooden sticks, so had to cheat a bit by using some oils, was it? x ingatlah. Had some game which was, VERY INTERESTING and managed to pull a prank on Hamim for her birthday and THAT was another spontaneous act by everyone. :)

Next stop? Island Hopping !!!! Why is it called that? because we'll be hopping from a few islands and some few stops and that's how we got our name! Island Hopperz :)  


Last shot before the hopping begins ! There were a few islands that we visited but I could only remember, Tasik Dayang Bunting, Pantai Beras Basah, Gua Kelawar and Pusat Ternak Ikan. The last 2 places that I mention were really the "best" part. I'm sure we will never forget those two places and the reasons shall be explained later.




Okay this was the Pusat Ternak Ikan which, at first, based on our boat driver, he mentioned that this place is so much better than the famous Langkawi Under Water World. pfft. presentation-wise, of course it could not beat it but we did learn some interesting facts about sea creatures, so its kinda a 70-30 win-win situation, to me lah. I dont remember the significance of the pose in the picture above but I love the moment we spend there, our mind was at peace.

I think our last stop was Pulau Beras Basah where we were left there for an hour or so to play by the beach. This beach was quite commercialized since there were rental places for flippers and stuff and some water activities. We decided to just play among ourselves and had a beach ball comp. and inevitably some jumping shots, well, us and pictures are inseparable. While they were playing in the waters, I went to buy a drink and sat under the shades while having some of Noni's chipsmore. I was saving it for the rest until I had an unexpected friend joining me and finishing off the rest of the cookies. This is some modern monkey, I was told to be aware of them and this fella just sat right next to me and leisurely munching off all the cookies =.= and surprisingly in z very civilized manner. kudos to you monkey.





I just had to try the rope hanging from the tree. heee

After freshen up and had our late lunch, we went for the cable car ride at Mount Mat Cincang. Nothing much here, except the fact that they were all dancing a few hundreds feet above ground under my orders. haha korang ni memang ikuttt je kan request aku? :')



Gangnam Style was the in-thing at that moment, thus explaining the picture below. The other one was one of the epic dance step performed by Echo the night before.



and with that, day 2 ends. The last day was aaaaallll about shopping and buying things-our-moms-ordered-day. The ladies of this amazing trip, from left, Qila, Reen, Me, Noni and Hamim.


Well, Langkawi is the heaven of very cheap chocolates. This trolley cost us RM ........


Done and ready to go home, well, this was our catch of the day !

Us. The beginning of a legacy perhaps? Probably. The first edition of Island Hopperz.
