HeLp..We are Dying!!!


honestly..that's what haunted me these few days..my plants in the office are dying. it has not rained since last weekend. it was a very hot days for the past 7 days..yes, very the very hot days..i was away for a week for the PISA coding and left the key to the balcony to my fellow colleague. i left a tumbler full of water and to my surprise the tumbler was still full when i got back in the office on Monday.

there was my asthmatic colleague..telling me that he lost the key..what? okay, i was trying not to get panic. it should be somewhere..so i told him to keep on searching. he might accidentally take it home..after 3 days of constant nag at him..i finally gave up. i asked my office assistant, Mariam to look for spare key. she quietly whispered to me..the key is not missing Madam Rose has it. what? Mr Malek forgot to lock the door so Madam Rose locked it and took the key as well. i dint want to go and ask her straight away..okay, she wanted to play a game. so, i let her. after 5 days and there was no sign that she's giving the key back to me.

everyday i look at my plants with tears.. yes, no kidding i was crying..well, they are my babies. i plant them from seeds and was happy to see the flowers started to bloom. in fact, that what keeps me happy on such down days in the workplace. why couldnt people be more human? i just need to water the plant.

the office was freezing cold during last 5 days. i wonder why the maintenance failed to fix it. my flu is gone after me being absent from the office for 5 days. i doubt that it would go away so quick if still stuck in the office...yeah, had it for 2 weeks and boxes of tissues wasted. can you imagine it was like -10 in the office but 40 outside (okay..i might exaggerating it) but hey some of my colleagues had to put their gloves on..wearing sweater and wrapped shawl on their bodies. the latest one is..many of them have this electric hot water pillow..it's funny. hey nobody wants to be frozen. my fingers were numb and i believe me. it was freaking cold! mr malek had a blanket with him keeping him warm and protected. he had a serious asthma attack last month and was admitted to ER...poor guy. i dont think it will be fun to see him having attack in the office especially when im around. it's going to be very scary..and sad to see someone gasping. i was by the bedside of two close people in my life while they were dying..no kidding, i dont want to see that anymore..

back to my plants..that's it! madam Rose was extremely busy today so i had no chance to bug her and demand the key back. it was almost 430pm..the sun still shinning bright. my plants..owh..owh..my plants. okay, a girl has to do what a girl has to do. i remembered the possibility of getting to the balcony from other way..the meeting room? they were having meeting at that time. so i dint want to wait to wait till they finished..which probably 530pm or 6pm. then...i had an idea..the documents room.. tadaa..yes the room which stores the old yellowish documents.

hahaha.. im in charged now.yes, i am the storekeeper.so i have the keys. there is a window in the room and im quite positive that it only locked from the inside. there there was me..with a tumbler full of 2L water. hooray..i could open it.. so i took the chair and climbed out from the window..1 2 3..jump...my babies are drying, the soil cracked due to heat.. i generously poured the water on them..saying "now..now..dont be scared darling, mommy going to take care of you no matter how".

climbing back to the room was not easy when you are wearing a skirt..luckily the window is wide enough to fit the chair. i pulled the chair outside and climbed back for extra water and did the same again. hope the plants will be okay and it rain during these couple of days. perhaps i should do the nafl prayer and ask Allah to make it rain. to madam Rose, please dont let us frozen..and pity my plants. plants are important to us..they give us oxygen..need not to say more since she was a former science teacher and must be fully aware with the fact that we do need PLANTS to breathe.

How Do You Pronounce his Name...?

im back in the office after a week away..and by the time i reached the elevator, i was asked "So, are you feeling all nervous for the big day?" i was just smiling..thinking, should i feel nervous?

obviously the news spread, good! that's my intention.
congratulation Bulan!Congrat Miss Bulan!
and i gave them a big smile..yes a big one that almost break my jaw.

that's lovely, then the question popped a gain " are feeling all nervous?" i replied " dont know, i'm just going to get married" weird..weird..weird. their questions do make me nervous..it's like do i have to get nervous? am i all right if i dont get nervous? sort of feeling guilty for not getting nervous.

  • so, who is the groom? A close friend of mine
  • how do you Pronounce his name? Z...again? I SAID Z....
  • where is he from? Outer space..the Greeno Planet
  • where on earth did you meet him? Yes, i met him on earth in the varsity to be precised..while we were doing our Master degree.
  • where are going to stay afterwards? Here! well, i dont feel the need to announce to them the "hijrah" that we are going to make later on..just my family know about it and that's fine to them.
  • Are you aware of the this kindda marriage? yes, i am fully aware of the inter-species relationship. we are the same, except that i dont speak his native language, i dont cook his traditional cuisine, i dont know his culture, i dont like maths, i dont play sport, i dont understand French, i dont like winter..etc..others than that we are the SAME
  • you have to make sure that he doesnt control you? it depends sometimes i do need to be controlled. NO he doesnt tell me DOs and DONTs. He guides me on the RIGHTs and WRONGs which i gladly accepted.
  • You should teach him our culture..Yes, he is fully aware of MY CULTURE..and that's the most important culture. my culture might not compliment others'..
  • why dont you have a big wedding? i always have a dream wedding which is a simple nikah. an akad ceremony in masjid, a small reception at home and off we go for a private holiday. so i guess..it's going to work as it's planned. INSYAALLAH :)
  • but the most popular response..shall i say top rated...is YOUR CHILDREN SURELY LOOK BEAUTIFUL..Insyaallah..i take it as a dua since me and my Honey Star loves children and we wanted to have a dozen of them :)


a bunch of happy kitties with lots of love

Me, My HoneY StaR, a Wedding and 1000+ booklets to be coded

i'll be married to my Honey Star in less than a month..and been busy running here and there. both work and doing some preparation for the day. Alhamdulillah 90% are done. including the most challenging task..which is buying the wedding shoes. it always not easy to find suitable shoes for me..or shall i say it's easy since i only have limited store to get it: Pedal Works & Shuz in Isetan, Pedal Works main outlet in Subang, Clarks and Vincci + well, if i go for strappy heels, Pedal Works is a good choice but lately i settled for Clarks..easy pick any design and ask for size 8...surely fit me perfectly. the best thing is the Clarks outlet is just walking distance from my office so i could always browse through and mark it first...till the next pay day.

last sunday, me, Honey Star and Taheerah were all around the city looking for my wedding shoes. 4 malls..countless outlets..till Honey Star finally agreed that his "wife" is blessed with beautiful large feet. so..yes! we ended up in Clarks and bought a simple but sweet beige heels..plain but i might decorate it on my own..perhaps sticking some beads.i dont know. we'll see.
the wedding dress is ready, as well as Honey Stars'. i sent it for dry clean and hope to pick it this friday back from the "PISA CODING". i just need to buy buttons for Honey Star, candies for the gifts, new curtain for my room...and that's it...i think

my flu is almost gone and i got my teeth checked....yes, miss lazy to floss had to do filling for her tooth :P better get it done now before it gets worse..i dont want to be sick on my wedding day and of course for the holiday after that. just me, my Honey Star and Lots of LOVE
the invitation cards were nicely designed but the printer was not doing a good job. the cards turned all blurry..:( sadly, it's too late to get it reprinted...we had no choice but to send it anyway..the map to the wedding reception is still visible..i guess all be fine. what could be interesting than this..a surprising proposal, simple engagement, small party but HEAPS OF HAPPINESS!!!! it's going to be so much fun, two diversed culture, lots of food, friends, children running around and "gossip aunties"..hahahaha
now..im alone in the hotel room and be here till friday noon...hurgh..
my group is really fast and we finished ahead from others but we need to wait for others before moved to second stage. it was easy-peasy for me since i did the coding for the pilot study before. same questions, same answers but different students and waaaayyyy to many booklets.


I am a Bigfoot Cinderella and Yes I have found my Prince Charming :)
