My boys

... and their biggest milestones yet.

AI has just completed his dip and AF will be following suit with his degree in a months time. Then, one will pursue his studies while the other will be send off to his first posting...all these major changes happening mid year.

And i'm guessing its both exhilarating & daunting at the same time.

Semoga anak2 mama berjaya dunia akhirat :)

Abe - miss you already la.
AI- beringat la kat picnic tu.. dont want anything to happen to my soon to be bodyguard ;p
AF - see you in a bit... drive carefully yang!!
AH - just you n me again babe but the AA women will stay strong aight :)

Unexpected places

.. yup, solace can be found where you least expect it.

Sometimes when you're down or when that old, familiar feelings of abandonment creeps up on you and the darkness seem just a stone throw away, God sends you these wisps of hope from the weirdest and most unusual of sources.

Who would have thought a miley cyrus song could make me feel better lol.. but feel better i did, thanks to the simple but surprisingly meaningful lyrics :D

I can almost see it.
That dream I'm dreamin', but
There's a voice inside my head sayin'
You'll never reach it
Every step I'm takin'
Every move I make
Feels lost with no direction,
My faith is shakin'
But I gotta keep tryin'
Gotta keep my head held high..

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facin'
The chances I'm takin'
Sometimes might knock me down, but
No I'm not breakin'
I may not know it, but
These are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most
I've just gotta keep goin', and
I gotta be strong
Just keep pushin' on, but..

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side
It's the climb

Keep on movin'
Keep climbin'
Keep faith baby
It's all about,
It's all about
The climb
Keep the faith,
Keep your faith.. woah
[ The Climb Lyrics on ]

Nobody in my household actually listens to her (everyone's passed the hannah montana stage obviously lol).. but i guess it goes to show we really shouldnt discriminate ;)

... its FULL HOUSE this weekend!!

Yup, both the boys decided to head home... seems that AF's gf will be reading her poems at mph tomorrow and they're back to provide a little moral support :)

I'm just happy they're all home.

Extremely happy :)

There's a couple of loose ends that can be attended to with them around... heading the list is of course AI's botak tyres and Abe's phone upgrade, something that only mr. gadget man himself can settle hehehe.

Kesian abah la aie, dah lama dia dok tunggu tau!!

AH as usual is keeping busy... on top of her tuition, music, scriptwriting, kickboxing and whatever else, she's also out bowling with her teachers under the mentor/mentee programme. hmmm, bowling? i wonder how thats supposed to work?!!

Apapun, my cup runneth over :D

2nd extension

... and by the grace of God i still have golfman with me :)

We were supposed to be in klia this morning saying our (to be more specific just mine) teary goodbyes but instead, we went out stomping and shaking our butts to the loud music at dataran shah alam lol.

However much a slavedriver the boss of the hubs can sometimes be, he's still humane enough to prolong the otherwise short stints home with meetings upon meetings. yes, in certain cases endless meetings can be good.


Life's pretty goooood..for now :)

A lonely 8

... in a week where exercise has been almost non-existent.

no running
nor walking
nor swimming
just lots and lots of cooking....and inevitably, eating.

But i have my man with me, so its ok ;)

AI needed his baju melayu for a pre-graduation lunch on sunday so the three of us went down to lendu immediately after golfman's game. its also the last opportunity for us to check out his digs before he completes his dip this sem.

Waaah.. bersih giler siot!! nothing at all like AF's or for that matter, his abah's place during his student days lol. way to go dude... tapi kat umah pun kena la maintain macam tu gak ek!!

And AI's suggestion of dinner at Seoul Garden was a good call indeed. rupanya tak rugi turun bandar melaka.. although i had my misgivings especially when we started hitting the massive traffic jams into the city. best jugak masak on-the-spot macam tu (wish you were with us aie)... bila makan panas2 sedap je semua. silap2 terasa macam berlakun drama korea pulak ekekeh ;)

The ride back home was pretty scary tho... while in melaka, the air was thick with kelkatus busily kamikazying themselves against my windscreen. thank god it got better as we entered the NS border. i wonder what could've triggered their presence? the mess they made was bad enough but washing their remains off the car was extremely yukky business :(

Nasib baik la the kelkatus in these parts remained sane lol

AF - i'm glad you're back in sp safe & sound. the long journey to trengganu must've been backbreaking or at the very lease, butt-aching lol.
AI - honestly anak, abah & me both agree we've never been to a rumah bujang more spick & span than yours -_-' and please remind me of the tayar botak the moment you get home k!

If life is a drama

... you better make sure you get a good scriptwriter ;)

Earlier this year AH was coerced by her friends in the drama group into producing a script for the school drama competition. In true 'bidan terjun' fashion, she came up with an adaptation of jodi picoult's my sister's keeper.. and unfortunately in true 'primadonna' fashion, her friends missed the fine nuances and failed to grasp the depth of the story.

They were used to the vava voom, mami jarum, datuk datin, glam kind of script that's focused more on direct delivery & action, rather than articulation & body language. so the moment they laid their hands on a more 'suitable' alternative (makcik berada's son falls for makcik nasi lemak's daughter, who's father dies tragically and mother becomes disabled and one of them turns desolate enough to want to kill themselves.. or something along that line), they dumped her script and didnt even have the decency to let her know about it face to face. she found out about it much much later from someone totally unrelated.

Come on la, that was totally uncalled for. of course you can do whatever you like but at least deal with it the proper, more 'gentlemanly' way. is it that hard to be open and honest?!!

Anyway, AH is again involved in the makings of another script and this time its for a bunch of her male buddies. arshad zamir (of the kurus fame) approached her for a favour.. seems that he & gang wanted to put up 'something' for teacher's day and gave her free license with content. 'something' turns out to be a short play about the desperate bid of a nerd to shake his pathetic image in a spectacular 360 deg turn.. and in the process, finds himself. they had a practice session down by the tasik last sat and AH admits the predominantly male cast was way easier to handle so shes probably going to stick to that formula from now on lol.

Apa2 je la sayang... asalkan bahagia ;)

Oh and yesterday was the audition for the annual Teacher's Day concert.. dunno if AH's rendition of manbai's kau ilham ku caught her teacher's fancy or not.

F1 fever..

.. and the need for speed.

Its the F1 season again and time for all the racing enthusiasts to come out and play. i was in suria klcc on saturday and right there by the lobby where they had this mini exhibition going on, you could almost smell the track through the feverish excitement of the crowd.

Why do some people (me included) find pleasure in speed?

What draws us to fast cars and even faster driving?

Is it the feeling of power?
The rush of adrenaline coursing through our veins?
The lack of control in an otherwise regulated existence?
Is it to compensate for the excitement missing from our dull & dreary lives?
A means of escape?

There must surely be 1001 different reasons for each and everyone of us... but i sometimes wonder if it all boils down to our inherent fascination with death.

Flat feet

.. is when you're feeling flat on your feet hehehe!!

I havent been running lately. baru je nak get back into regular motion, god presents me with the unresistable opportunity of snuggling in the mornings.. and how can i turn my back on such rare & precious moments?!

Sooo... even though i'm feeling extremely light of heart, i'm starting to feel pretty heavy on my feet. Since theres not a chance in hell i'm going to forego my sleep-ins, i need to come up with plan B and that would mean either running right after work (omg the heat!!) or after dinner (golfman's not going to like that one bit lol).



It'll sort itself out... when theres a will, theres a way :)

(i hope so anyway)

Oh and btw, did anyone turn out a fool today?

AF - abah's been asking about you so you better haul your ass home tomorrow k :)
AI - sayang mama ni mcm mana lak sampai bole kena saman? ish ish.. pls be more mindful of consequences la yang.
AH - i'm not trying to be a pain in u know where but getting a krs uniform at this point in time seems pretty wasteful.
Abe - GANBATTE dearest :D
