Recent Events!

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim.

Assalamualaikum WRT WBT..

Hahahahha.. Needed to get that out first before I continue to write. Sorry again folks. If you look at the shoutbox at the side, you'll notice my sister urging me to update my blog. Ok la ok la.. Ill update :P

So whats been going on with my life? :P

First of all, I have to mention the fact that there have and will be lots and lots of kenduri this year. Friends getting engaged, getting married, so on and so forth. Looks like I'll me going to and fro from JB to KL a bunch of times this year. Hehe.

Let me mention the majlis yang dah lepas.. lets see..
1. Lilly & Ameer tunang (both are close friends)
2. Khalid & Wani kawen (both are friends)
3. Kak Ira & Syawal tunang (both close friends)
4. Sue & Eddie kawen (Sue close friend)

Fiuh. Alhamdulillah I was able to attend two of these events. I really apologise to Khalid and Sue sbb tak dpt attend you guys punye ceremony. Especially Sue :( Im so sorry babe. InsyaAllah I'll come to Eddie's side ok.

Ok, picture time :D

1st, Ameer and Lilly! hehhe..

It was kinda a majlis tunang com small reunion! Hehe.. it was great. Lama betul tak jumpa my friends. Had a blast. Well worth the long journey.

Next, KakIra & Syawal. This was last weekend. hehe.

Ok, please forgive the excessive picture taking. Hahhahaha. You know us girls. Takleh tengok camera. Kitorg mmg mcm ni, especially when all of us are photographers (not professionals, but have the knowledge :P) and always want to try new poses. Hahaha.

Well, these are my uni friends.

In between these events, lots have been happening at home.

One: Aimi and I are now wearing braces! Aghhhhhhh! hehehhehe.. Its a combination of two totally different emotions. For me la. 1st suka, 2nd agony. Hahhaha.

Who ever said wearing braces is nothing mmg nak kene sepak ngan aku. Im sure those who've experienced it can vouch for me when I say it HURTS.

Alhamdulillah mine takde la sakit like Aimi's. The dentist said that my teeth only need rearranging. Tak jonggang (kasar ek perkataan jonggang tu). Aimi kept saying that it really really hurts, but this isnt the case for me.

Although I have to admit that it hurts to eat, and it hurts when you wake up in the morning, etc, but I havent had the need to eat any pain killers just yet. Alhamdulillah.

I have two theories for this. (cewah, ade theory lagi tu! hahaha.. ntah betul ntah tidak). Anyway, my first theory is that since I already used to have terrible headaches (which I found out was partially caused by my whole upper jaw being shifted to the right), my pain threshold is very high. Which might mean that compared to the pain I used to have, this kind of pain is very very mild. Again, just a theory :P

Second theory: since my teeth only need to be realigned, compared to Aliya (dulu2 la) and Aimi, and Raihana (jiran belakang rumah who I interviewed the other day) which were slightly misplaced and slightly in a forward position (Im trying to find the translation of jonggang -- which I find slightly offensive), my teeth dont need to be pushed in. Again a theory.

But I do have difficulty eating -- a GOOD thing, since it will prevent me from eating hard snacks. Haha..

And a huge thanks Aliya :D You know why. Thanks a bunch sis!

So now, bukan aje me and Aimi a very simillar height, we also have the same teeth!! hahahahha. Aida la paling untung, gigi die lawa! Untunglaaaaaaaaaa :P hehe.

Banyak lagi nak cite ni. But I think I have to stop for now. Nak gi solat. Hehe..

Till next time! Over and Out.

Oh yes, before I forget. Im going to further privatise my blog, so kalau tibe2 tak boleh bukak this URL, paham2 la sendiri. After this, all updates will be done at my public blog.

Thank You for understanding.

Sensitivity Level

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim,

I know I havent been blogging for a while. Which might explain why Im stressed out all the time these past few months. My blog has always been a place for venting and expressing my hurt and sorrows, my disappointments and shame. Ive always found it to be my own self therapy. Its a medium to get out all the things crowded in my head so that it can be a little free and peaceful.

Last week, I found out something about myself. After a few episodes and incidents, I realised a significant change in me, which can be seen as either good or bad.

I found out about my sensitivity level.

When I think about my University days, I always remember myself to be this confident and strong person. Someone who is able to control her emotions when a stressful situation is brought upon her and who is able to deal with problems and solve them in a short period of time. Although Im a soft spoken person, I am strict. AND I can control myself when it comes to confrontations. I voice out my opinions with confidence and without fear of rejection.

But now?

I find myself easily shedding a tear here and there. I get emotional with the littlest things, I cry when I see other people crying and confrontation will always lead to a tear fest. I always feel emotional when it comes to things I did wrong, things that are my fault and things that is supposed to be my right but not given to me. I cry when my wrong is corrected by others, and I cry when I know Im at fault.

I actually shed tears when my bos advised me about something. I couldnt believe myself. Why the heck should I be that emotional? When all she taught me was how to handle difficult customers.

I dont see myself as this strong confident person anymore. Its as if Ive changed over a course of a few months. I would rather stay quiet and say nothing than voice out what I think. Why is that?

Seriously, its worrying. Although Im glad Allah gave me the gift of tears, sometimes its inappropriate in certain situations.

I noticed that since the huge failure in my life, Im very sensitive when it comes to failing anything. I get emotional when it comes to not fulfilling others expectations. Time and time again, Ive always said that my not being able to go to UK really affected me, but no one really believes me.

People think that Im healed, but Im the only one who can verify it. And no, Im not healed. I still feel like a failure and that Im not good at anything.

Ayah and Nenek keep asking me if I still want to further my studies. But I never answer. The truth is, Im not confident that Im able to. The rejection was like I was pushed into a huge ravine, and Im still trying to climb back up. Without the proper help and motivation, I might just give up and stay inside.

I noticed how I no longer set big goals in my career. Its like my settling with my current job coz that what Im confident I can do. How pathetic is that? I know I can do better, but Im not confident enough to try.

On thr brighter side, crying is another form of therapy, its a way to express sadness and get the emotion out of my sistem. I cry for my sins and my faults. I find myself closer to Allah. Which is good.

But I still need to do something. I think theres something wrong with me, its just that I dont know what it is and how to deal with it. Any ideas?


Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim,

Assalamualaikum WRT WBT.

Wau, its been a while hasnt it. Unexpectedly, I have this awkward feeling sitting in front of the computer and actually blogging. Wierd huh.

Im awfully sorry folks for not updating. A lot has been happening in my life, from big events to small little but significant ones. I do apologise for the absence, there's always something else to do when there's time to write.

Right now pun, Im actually supposed to do something else, but since my blog might merajok if I dont 'feed' it, Im putting the other task on KIV.

So heya all. I hope everyone's doing great. Wau, I have so much to write about that Im not sure where I should start.

Maybe I should start by explaining why Ive been so busy lately. The end of last year and early this year was filled with job hunting. It was a long winding road, with bumps and holes. But I made thru it alhamdulillah.

As a result of my patience, Alhamdulillah I got a decent offer working as a graphic designer just near home. Its only 5 minutes away. Although I can just walk to the office, but with this current heat wave, its safer to drive.

Please take note that I will be complaining about my work in the near future, no doubt about that, but generally speaking, its been ok. No major problems or upsets just yet. Im praying there wont be any in the future. May Allah help me and guide me along the way.

I also just got my 1st pay check last weekend :D hehehhe.. alhamdulillah. Nenek said, "Gaji pertama ni kene bagi orang, supaya duit to berkembang.." Ala, you know what she means. So I belanja my family (semua including Aimi) to Nando's the other night. Alhamdulillah.

Thats basically the tip of the iceberg of whats been happening with my life. Although my work has become one of the many priorities in my life right now, its not the ONLY priority. Ive always been active with KBJ and JJB and ofkos dakwah. My absence these past months are actually due to the fact that Im still trying to reorganise my time and my energy so that all these priorities can be balanced.

If you dont see me online and my blog is suddenly dusty with cobwebs, that means Im still trying to get a hang on things, so do excuse me. When Im really really settled and am able to manage my time more systematically, Ill be updating InsyaAllah.

Gimme a couple of months *wink*

Till next time, over and out.
