BirthDay AlerT

4th January had been the most important date in my life. It is my birthday! This time around I didn’t feel like to disclose how old I am today. But for those who closed to me, should have known about it. SMS and MMS messages had started pouring in soon after 00.01 am of 4th January 2008 (thanks to all my dear friends!) This year, my birthday falls on Friday, thus I’m hoping this year I’ll get more “keberkatan” from Him. In fact, during the evening, it had been raining heavily as ever (a sign of more keberkatan, maybe)

Presents time! My ‘mak’ bought a blouse (that I’d been aiming but couldn’t afford to buy as it was over rm100); Ana gave me a Crabtree & Evelyn body and hand set. Alia gave me a 4 in 1 teddy bear (you can sit on it or make a pillow of it or hug it or scare the cat using it) I named it “Chocolate” (taken from my favorite anime character in ‘Sugar2 Rune’) (but please pronounced it as cokeli) Dear mum and sis, terime kasih daun keladi, tahun depan bagi lg k!

On Sat, I with two married couples (Azhar+Rina and Miru+Ella) had another birthday celebration at the Red Box Karaoke. Initially, Mawar had agreed to join us, but last minute she had to cancel as suddenly she falls sick (get well soon, mate!) so I tried my luck in persuading Mr. X to join us. But as usual he’s the family first type (got a kenduri to attend), thus he had to say no to me. Nah, never mind, with or without him, the karaoke session was great! Just imagine how many songs we had sang throughout the 2 hours and 45 minutes session (please incl. Spice Girls + Kuch2 Hota Hai + Dangdut + Joget and of course our must sing song ‘Cinta’)

Soon after the karaoke+luncheon session, it’s window shopping (for me for who is penniless) and shopping (for Rina and Ella) time. This birthday outing was then ended by having tea session at Secret Recipe (thanks gals and guys for the cake)

Well, the celebration had ended, but the problem with getting one year older had just begun. Most of my cousins and even my sister are busy of getting married. And my mum had been constantly reminded me that my age (specifically this year age!) is perfect for getting married. I’m getting serabut now. There were times that I think I’m ready for all of this. But most of the time, I don’t think now is the right time. As I don’t want to marry someone for the sake of getting married before people started gossiping me around and for the fact that I’ve yet found my Mr. Right.

Me, Exam & Fever

First of all, this was not an excuse but in fact two days before I sat for the exam, I had fall sick (fever+sore throat+flu) one of the reasons might be due to the late night stay up for last time review of notes in an air con room. So, on the day itself, I wasn’t really fully recovered (maybe because of the stress) and started to have the headaches. I’m sweating throughout the exam; those Acti fast panadol didn’t help at all and I can hardly focus on answering the question. Feels like everything I learnt had gone with the wind just like that. But one of my important exam tips was, though I didn’t have any idea at all, I must at least attempt the question with any possible answers (so despite of being blank, I did managed to answer all the questions, though it was a total crap!), as we never know when the crap is actually the answers the we had been looking for. Exam had ended but now I’m having this guilty feeling (towards my lecturer, Mrs Lydia) as I’d this instinct that I’d failed this paper (anyway, passing the paper with marginal marks; 55-50 marks is same as I had just failed the paper) Thus, Mrs. Lydia, I’m so sorry for disappointing you. It was not your fault as you had been a great lecturer, but it just happened that I fall sick and I’m all to be blamed for not taking care of my health before going for the exam. Somehow, the harm had been done, just wait for the results to come out.

2007 vs 2008

Last year, had been a great year for me. My bestfriend, Rina, finally tied the knot with Azhar. Few of my friends also had getting married. Those who had already married, get their first or second child. My mum got promotion. My sister had completed her degree in accountancy. My youngest sister had finished her school. My only brother had come into his own sense by getting himself a job. Me? Finally, I’d got the gut to resign from the company. That was a few of good things that had happened last year.

This 2008, I believed that more good things will be happening. My sister’s convocation which will be somewhere in April. Then followed by her engagement in August, and insya allah the wedding will be in December. As the STPM result will be released soon, I’m also expecting that my youngest sister will be in the University soon. Currently, I’m still looking for suitable job position, as I’m planning to work there for a long time. Now, is the time to get serious with my life! Planning to buy a car. And hopefully I can complete all Part 2 ACCA paper by the end of this year. God’s willing, if I get promotion or huge salary increment, I’m considering of buying a house.

My mother and I also are planning of having our annual trip to Langkawi or Bandung (depending on the budget). I’m also hoping for more reunion or gathering with ex-semestarian + ex-qepohian + ex-shadapian + ex-utpian. Anyway, all had been planned and with God’s willing, I hope everything can be realized this year. Amin~
