malam tu. aku tak terawih. tanak laa jangkitkan wabak yg melanda kat org lain. jdnye aku tgk mentalist.diikuti ceplos. diikuti grey's anatomy (btw..sape2 rase nak propose kat aku, kalo korang buat cam dr.shepard buat, mmg aku konfem terime korang sama ada utk jd gf/isteri la). aku terharu sbb akhirnya diorg akan kawin! . lepas grey's aku tgk bukan bidadari. drama yang org kate pelik dan jelik. tp realitinye. aku rase mmg byk terjadi. malas nak cite byk. sbb aku tak ske sgt dgn pelakon drama tu. pastu aku tgk britannica high. cite ala2 high school. diikuti singgah sahur. dan akhirnya cite yg dinanti2. head over heels.
aku igt lagi memori disebalik cite nie. mase tu dekat metana ke etana. aku kat bilik bestfren aku; Rina dan eja. aku rase pidah, lyn dan mawar pun ade kot. kami tgk cite nie beramai2.sape punye cd pun aku tatau. mmg layanlaa cite nie.1st sbb ade freddie prinze jr . keduanye plot cite menarik. ketiga sbb nie cite komedi romantik dgn sedikit sentuhan triler. keempat sbb gelagat model2 yg turut berlakon. sbb dah lame sgt tak tgk. so aku tgk cam baru 1st time tgk. sambil gelak sorang2.
movie nie pasal sorang minah nie duduk dgn 4 org model yg gile2. pada mase yg same. umah die bertentangan dgn umah sorang mamat hensem nie yg die ske. jadi hari2 heroin tu dan kawan2 die usha umah mamat tu. tujuannye nak cari ape kekurangan mamat tu. dan kebetulannye minah dan mamat nie jatuh cinta. tp satu hari tu heroin nampak hero bunuh org. pas tu. mcm2 laa benda yg kelaka+pelik+ sedih terjadi. cite nie happy ending. sbb tu aku layan.
sape2 yg kurang tahu. head over heels bermaksud dlm omputih - hopelessly, completely. contoh penggunaanye : "Nadia soon found herself head over heels in love with this guy." pape jelah.

Amalan bangun sahur ini membezakan antara puasa orang Islam dengan puasa orang Yahudi dan Nasrani (ahli kitab). Hal ini disebut dalam sabda Rasulullah yang diriwayatkan oleh Imam Muslim, yang bermaksud : “Perbezaan di antara puasa kami dengan puasa ahli kitab (Yahudi dan Nasrani) ialah adanya makan sahur.”
Sahur adalah satu rahmat dan berkat yang dikurniakan Allah ke atas umat Islam. Anjuran bersahur itu dapat dilihat lagi dalam hadis Nabi bermaksud: “Makanlah sahur, sekalipun dengan seteguk air.” (Hadis riwayat Ibnu Hibban) Hadis tadi menunjukkan kepentingan bersahur kepada orang yang berpuasa walaupun makan atau minum dengan sedikit saja sekalipun dengan hanya seteguk air. Dalam hadis lain, kelebihan ke atas orang yang bersahur itu ialah seperti sabda Rasulullah bermaksud: “Sesungguhnya Allah dan malaikatnya mengucapkan selawat (berdoa dan memohon daripada Allah akan keampunan dan keredaan) ke atas orang yang bersahur.” (Hadis riwayat At-Tabrani).
Selain disunatkan bersahur kita juga disunatkan untuk melambatkan waktu bersahur itu kerana amalan itu dilakukan oleh utusan Allah dan sahabat. Imam Ahmad meriwayatkan bahawa Rasulullah bersabda yang bermaksud: “Sentiasa umatku dalam kebaikan selama mereka mahu bersegera berbuka puasanya dan mengakhirkan makan sahurnya.” Melewatkan sahur bermaksud bersahur ketika menghampiri waktu Subuh. Berkaitan perkara ini, Zaid bin Thabit pernah berkata: “Kami pernah bersahur bersama nabi, kemudian kami bangun untuk melakukan solat (Subuh). Zaid ditanya : “Berapa lama masa antara kedua-duanya (yakni antara makan sahur dan solat Subuh)?” Berkata Zaid: “Sekadar membaca 50 ayat al-Quran.” (Hadis riwayat Bukhari) Dalam kitab Nailul Authar, disebutkan Imam Ibn Abdil Bar berkata bahawa hadis yang menerangkan kepentingan menyegerakan berbuka puasa dan melewatkan sahur semuanya bertaraf sahih dan mutawatir. Penekanan Nabi agar sahur dilewatkan dan tidak diabaikan amat signifikan lagi saintifik kerana ia menepati waktu bersarapan pagi.
This is our first sahur without my sis, Liyana eversince she got married. Btw, she is heavily pregnant with her firstborn. So, as usual the routine continues, on weekends – mum will prepare for sahur n weekdays it is on us, me n my youngest sister. As for buka, it is totally will be last minute thingy; either to cook/ to pack or to dine out. So far, we had packed our iftar. (me n my mum decided it worthless to cook just for two of us) . Eventually, cooking for sahur is one tough task. 1st of all, you had to wake up significantly early from the rest. 2nd, you need to come out with something that is not too spicy and appetizing enough to be eaten for the sahur (which is the hardest part). And finally, you had a time constrain. (unless you’re willing to wake up 2 or 3 hours before imsak to prepare for the dishes)
So, to make things easier, we cooked extra rice for the iftar so the leftover can be reheat for sahur. Then, mum had peeled of lots of onion and garlics to fasten up the preparation of cooking. I on the other hand, had prepared a big Tupperware of blended chili paste. Stocking up eggs, leafy vegetables also helped in cutting down the preparation time. The most important thing is to plan ahead. That’s including setting up the alarm clock and the dishes. (how I wish we could just simply tapau anything and then just reheat the next morning, but the fact fast food usually contains lots of unhealthy additional flavours, guess had to pass on that)

PTD exams started on 9 am and ended at 4.30 pm with 5 sections. General knowledge/maths and penyelesaian masalah/essay comprehension/ English essay and malay essay. The exams was not that tough. But having all being held on the same day, it was soo tiring. Got to know Kak Wan. She sat in front of me. Very friendly, offered me the biscuits that she brought and she even offered to drop me at the monorail station later after the exam. Alhamdulillah.
am thinking and worrying of resigning and searching for a new job. Thinking of about the exam. Thinking - whether I’d made the right decision of letting him go. Worrying for my sister and her chaotic life and soon to be more chaotic when the baby arrives. Thinking of him again.
The nightmares had been in so many forms it could possibly be. Once, it was about me stabbing a thief with a knife and didn’t feel scared at all. Then, somebody that I know was trying to harm me. I’d lost count the occasional dreams of me being bitten and chased by snakes. Recently I dreamt about Mr. K.A. After so many years! he told me that he divorced his wife to be with me and he’s been looking for me for quite long time. I woke up with a migraine later that day.

After freshen up and prayed, I lie on the bed while browsing thru the Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows hoping that I will be slowly deprived into sleep while reading it. eventually, I was a bit worried (more to scared), as I had to sleep alone in the room where the bed was just beside the window. So, I slept with the lights on, with the yaasin book beside me and few times terjaga all the night. I only managed to fall into deep sleep after the subuh.
Woke up around 8. rina had already woke up. She was lying on the sofa while watching the astro. She told me that she had a stomach ache. As both of us had been eating the same thing since yesterday morning, and I didn’t experience any mild diarrhea or stomach pain, I assumed that this might be due to improper meal time which cause gas in the stomach. Soon, everybody had woke up, even the little one, Fatin. Fatin will wake up whenever her parents are awake (dunno whether this is good thing or other wise) azhar n kimi bought some roti canai at ridiculously cheap price but good enough to be our bfast for that morning. 1 hour later, all were dressed up and packed up ready to check out to our last destination. Before our departure, the homestay owner had captured few pictures of us to be uploaded into their blog later.
2nd last destination, was the historical building at melaka. Frankly, I didn’t bother about what the place was called and what is was used to be before, as my main focus was to take tones of pictures. Indeed, supplied with 3 cameras (1 kodak+1 sony+1 sony dslr) I bet there were soooo many pictures! What I can recall is that, I climbed up&down lots of stairs till I gave up on my primavera wedges and changed into the comfy cheap slipper.
The day was getting hotter and Fatin started to cry once in a while with the fact that she refused to wear the cap, though there still a lot of place to jalan2, I think we had enough. We had our lunch at jonker 88 again! This time around I ate the mango ice kacang (drooling!) and nasi lemak sambal udang (just ignored this pls! ) while the rest opted for durian cendol+cendol+laksa asam+nasi lemak rendang. Finished eating around 3 p.m. and now time to go home (so sad, why good thing ended fast?)
So, overall, I’d spent: RM30 (accommodation), RM26 (seafood), RM8.70(late lunch at McD) RM69.90 (blouse) RM1.70(ice kacang), RM6.20(mango ice kacang n nasi lemak) = RM 142.50..(not incl toll and petrol) ..for 2d/1n at melaka..murahlaa tu!
Project member consisted of kimi, izma (mastermind ni), rina, azhar, fatin (org melaka yg pura2 jadi pelancong) and me (jonker walk’s addict)
To satisfy our thirst, we bought cendol and ice kacang at Jonker 88. This was my 2nd time there, but this was the 1st time for rina+azhar+kimi+izma. So, I was not too overwhelmed with the taste of the ice kacang n its gula melaka. The rest otherwise were drooling over the cendol. So far, this was the best abc and cendol I’d ever eaten. The ice was so smooth and the thickness of gula melaka was such a good complement to each other! (too yummy..till we decided for another trip tomorrow)
The restaurant was located further inside nearby the Sungai Duyong. From the jonker walk, it took around 10 minutes to reach there. By the time we reached there, around 7pm, the place had been crowded with ppl, we managed to spot a place nearby the river. It was advised (based on Kimi and Izma’s experience, to not to seat nearby the walls, try to find a place nearby the river or with fans, so that you wont be having bad ventilation problem while savouring the seafood later)
We then hand picked ourself the seafood for our dinner. I joined Rina and Izma for a while, but as I was 1st time there and unsure of what to eat I just left the decision up to them. So, we ordered; one jug of fresh orange and lime ice, siakap bakar cili, ketam masak cili, pepahat masak serai and halia kot, kepah masak sweet sour, garlic and buttered prawn, sotong goring tepung and last but not least the kalian ikan masin. Sounds too much rite? But aint too much for us, as we slowly savouring the dishes till nothing left except the shell and bones! Btw, while waiting for the food, I can’t help to notice of how fast the waiter cleans up the table. once the customer leaves the table a group of 4-5 youngster will head to the table with broom, dustpan, wiping cloth and basin to put all the plates, jugs and others. These fasten up the process, which within 2-3 minutes the table is ready for the next customer. Beside having the seafood, we also had the tauhu bakar. While rina+azhar n izma+kimi had nasi lemak. Since we still had unfilled compartment, we ordered for otak2 as our dessert. This otak2 were good too. It was hot and when you tasted it you’ll know that the seafood used was fresh. Everything had been eaten, next was the payment. For all of what we had ordered, it cost us RM 131 (murah tak? Murah kan?)
lupe nak comment on the food..
pepahat masak halia - the 1st one i ate had pasir inside it..so i tried the second one, ok plak. however the 3rd one ade a bit pasir..soo who's up to the adventure bolehlaa try.
siakap bakar - the fish meat sgt lembut n membuka selera.. maybe becoz it was fresh from the sea..
ketam masak cili - spicy and such and adventure to eat for my teeth(nasib baik ketam tu byk isi, else sia2 laa gigit bagai nak rak)..sampai tudung pun ikut makan skali..
kepah sweet sour - yummy..kepah die besar2..so i was lost of count how much i ate it..
garlic buttered prawn - not too oily and the prawns were big and such a heaven for prawn lover's like me
sotong goreng tepung - not oily at all..very crunchy..nyum2 nyum2..
The day hadn’t over yet. After dinner, we hit the MBMB park. The trees in blue and white colours, made a nice spot for taking lots of photos during the nite. There was also small fountain which brings lots of joy to the kids and of course fatin loves it too. Tired and full, we went back to the apartment for a good nite sleep. Can’t wait for the next day; we had another two mission tomorrow!
