Hormone

A week passed by, a few things has happened but one thing for sure is, my mood will swing like wheel. Sometimes I feel sad..and a moment later I can smile like nothing has happened. I do not understand why this happened. I guess the hormone is the answer to my query. Al hamdulillah, so far my pregnancy goes very well just I can't wait for the morning sickness to wave 'bye-bye' to me.

Fatigue- Yes it hit me like a bomb. I can spend the whole day just lying in bed.

I try to gain my knowledge in labour and birth from time to time. I almost can accept the fact that labour is inevitable. I will experience it somehow soon..So,nothing to be scared of..just I rely on everything to Allah..

I can cook!

After suffering from cannot-cook-syndrom, suddenly out of the blue all the syndroms have disappeared. The funny thing was, I dreamt of cooking in the last 2 night. So today, I browsed the cooking website to find something that I really want to eat. Lastly, I decided to make nasi kukus, sambal belacan, ayam goreng berempah and ulam.

I ate like pig and I had 3 servings to fulfill my big stomach. Well, it acceptable I think because I ate for two..hehehhee..I still need Am to help me in cooking especially when it involves with onion or garlic. I still cannot accept the smell though...But it is ok as long as not as bad as before.

Ok la..next monday I am officially in a week 12 and the last phase of trimester one. Can't wait for trimester two as I am longing for foodddddd!

Is he good?

Since I cannot do the house chores because of the Nausea, AM is helping me with everything. From doing the laundry, cooking, house cleaning and even serving the food into our bedroom. I do not 'mengada-ngada' but seriously living room and kitchen make me sick. I guess, the hormone of pregnant woman sometimes quite hard to understand until we face it by ourself. This morning, I was so pity of him when he had to wake up at the early morning..even though he slept at 5 am just to prepare my meal before he headed to the university. Sometimes, the food did not taste good but it was so shame to waste it since he put so much effort to cook it for me. I owe you my dear husband..I do not know you are so much responsible person until I fell pregnant. Thank you..thank you..

I vividly remember when I was 7 years old. My mum was pregnant for my little sister. She asked me to buy her nasi lemak at aunty A. But, I was so lazy to ride my bike to aunty A..so I bought her nasi lemak at aunty B instead. The fact was, both nasi lemak look aliked and the tasted was a little bit same. But, when my mum tried to eat the nasi lemak, she knew the nasi lemak was from different shop. She just left it and I finished the nasi lemak for myself. I knew she was frustrated with me and I just too self centred to think about my mum craving thingy. Now, I understand when it happen to me, It is soo hard if you cannot get the food that you want to. It is so hard to describe in a word..

Pregnancy make me realize how I love and appreciate my mum more than I do before. If I knew this earlier, surely I will never ever crossed with my mum and just did what she wanted me to do without second thought..

Nasi dagang...nasi kerabu..how I crave for Kelantan's food soo much..

First time

First time knowing that I am pregnant was on 3rd December 2008. I woke up in the morning and suddenly the idea of doing the test popped in my mind.I just took one of the test stick and peed on it. In a couple of minutes it showed two lines. I was totally, utterly happy and feel unbelievable. So that, I took another two sticks and peed on them.Al hamdulillah..aLL of the sticks showed the same results. Thank GOD for your gift. After test I waited for two weeks before meeting the GYN and midwife. I just not ready to do it earlier since I have an experience of miscarried last year. I do not want the happinesss last for a while like before. I keep praying and when I have enough courage I went off to the clinic to meet the GP first. She proposed me to go to the hospital and do the blood and urine test. So, after two days..I went for the test. At first I was so scared because I knew this time involved the blood. I deserved right, when the nurse took eight tubes of my blood for the test.And the truth was, I just about to pass out after the test. In another three weeks time,I need to go for another blood test again,'scanning for the syndrome down test' that they call it. I think I am ok this time, because if I ready to fall pregnant that mean I must get ready to be a cushion to be poke by doctor and nurse everytime and everywhere when they need.

A week after the blood test, I headed to the hospital once again on 10th December 2008 to meet the midwife and Gyn. The midwife asked me a million of questions and she checked me thoroughly. She performed the pap smear test..and what a shocked because the test is painless. I tried to avoid it thrice before..If I knew it was not this bad..surely I will go for the test..hehehhee..

After that, the midwife told me that my baby will be due on 18th July 2009...I was nine week pregnant when she did the test. Now I am in the middle of week ten to continue the journey of the first time mum to be.

The nausea hit me like hell. It is so torture when you crave for things that you could not get. Especially the foods. It much painful when I keep vomiting everyday in no time. I frequently go to the toilet to pee and everything. this pregnancy totally change my life at all...But, on the contrary..I am so glad to have this chance in my life...to be a mum after two years of our marriage...Do pray for me and the baby k..Hope everything goes fine..InsyaAllah...

Rambling in week 10

Yes, yes I know if I keep writing about my pregnancy experience, some of you might think my blog is turning to PIBG blog. Well, I guess it will somehow in no time. So pardon me for the uneasy entry about all this k. Heehehe..I am planning to make this 40 weeks of my journey as a special journal, so that I can remember it precisely when I am a few years ahead later on. I want to appreciate every moment of it. InsyaAllah.

Since a few weeks back, I face the same problem, nausea. But I read somewhere that this problem will go away when you up to 12 or 13 weeks of pregnancy, and I do hope so. It is very awful indeed to go through this morning sickness. It not just in the morning, it will come anytime though! And sometimes it can make my day worsen or even worst!

Oh by the way, I know it is too soon to buy for baby thingy but I cannot help myself from doing the survey on it. I visited a few baby shops and so far the cheapest white baby cot I can get is from IKEA ( I only want white colour for the baby cot, mosses basket and wardrobe for the baby, that is my so -called dream since I was single k..hhehee..jauh betul impian tu). Yep, so do you know, in Europe IKEA is the cheapest shop to buy furniture thingy and it is suitable for the budget people like us. It is so contrast compare to Malaysia. Maybe because of the currency converter, I guess!

Ops, we already received our ID thus, I will plan for our next trip soon, maybe in this coming February. I do not even know where our destination this time is, but I want to get out from Belgium soon. Bosan la wei! Ok hope I will find the best offer and place to visit soon. Ciao!

Lilypie Expecting a baby Ticker

Here is the greatest news I want to share with all...We are expecting our little baby next year. The due date is around 18th July 2009..Yehaa...So now, I am in the week nine of my pregnancy. Nothing much happend, just I face the nausea problem. The morning sickness is quite bad. I cannot cook and the worst is I will vomit everytime I see our kitchen. So, I only stay in our bedroom to avoid the kitchen view..Uwekkkkk..

First time of my check up was last week. The nurse took 8tubes of my blood and truthfully, I just about to pass out during the test..But, lucky me, I did not. The nurse gave me a glass of water to make myself better. And today, again we off to the hospital for the first time check up with genecologist. I deserved right, when she performed pap smear test on me just now. ahahhaa..I tried to avoid from this test thrice time in the U.K, but today ..no more chance to avoid it. But, it does not matter because the test is painless. In a couple of second the test is finished. So, my next appointment is another one month. Oh by the way, I received plenty of freebie items for our future baby from the hospital..I likeeeeee..hehehe..

Ok la..that's all..my first scan is on 9th January..so I hope everything goes very well..Wish me luck for the pregnancy, labour, birth and baby k..Insya Allah..amin..

Eid's Stories

After being quite a while stopping from blogging…I now have a few more ideas to update my blog. Before that, I want to wish Salam Aidiladha to all my Muslims friends and family and hope we will be a better person from year to year. Our Eid celebration was not so bad at all, it was superb and great!!!!!! A day before Eid, we packed our bag and went off to take the train and headed to Brussels. We stayed overnight at one of the Embassy’s officer, En Adnan and his wife Pn. Nurul. They both such a very lovely and nice people. Very nice indeed. They made us lost the ‘segan silu’ thingy when we were there. Our earlier planned was to catch a bus from the Metro station to their house, but they insisted to collect us at the Metro station. So we were too thankful for that and ‘segan sebenarnya’.hehhehe.. Then En Adnan droved us to their house. What a massive and a nice house they have. Yes..Yes I know that the Malaysian Government house but whose care? Now they live in the house so the house is theirs...hahaha...Since we stepping our feet in theirs, En Adnan’s wife, Nurul has started cooked a few dishes as a pre celebration. After cooking, we ate together with another embassy families that came to join the ‘makan2’.

I ate a lot. Part of the menu’s were, ‘masak lemak cili padi ikan talang’, ‘ikan bakar air asam’, ‘kari ikan merah’, and plenty more to list down. We were talking, eating, laughing and bla2..until12pm. Then we off to bed to take a better rest before tomorrow long day’s activities.

In the early morning, we woke up and get ready for ‘sembahyang raya’ at the embassy. The first time ever after 3 years I celebrated Eid properly with the ‘takbir raya’ and ‘solat raya’. It was so lovely and nice to join the activities. After ‘solat raya’ we headed to the ground floor for ‘jamuan raya’. I was so happy to fulfill my cravings for kuew teow kerang ..hhahahaa..There was plenty of dishes like, nasi himpit, rendang, fried vermicelli, apple pie and plenty more. Again, I made myself full for the whole day by eating like pig..hehhehe..

In the afternoon we return to En adnan's with our friends , before going to Cik Jamaliah house in the evening.Cik Jamaliah is one of the embassy staff also. Before that, once again we were having another serving at En. Adnan’s house. Bubur kacang, nasi daging, keropok goreng, biscuits and plenty of foods to choose from.After talking and eating, we off to Cik Jamaliah’s house for another food festival..hehhhee.. When I was there, I have already full so I just ate laksa and serawa durin. The foods were soo good to be wasted off. So again, I fill in my full stomach ..until burppppp…haahaha..

At 10pm..Most of the guests were heading off home and one more time we felt so ‘terharu’ and ‘terkejut’ because suddenly, En adnan and Nurul were offering to drive us back to Liege in the middle of the night. I told them Brussels – Liege was not so near. It almost 90km for one way. But they insisted! So with the guilty feeling we agree to be droved off back home, even we felt so pity to both of our hosts. Yela, depa dah la penat masak bagi kami makan..and penat dengan aktiviti seharian tetiba nak anta kami balik pulak..huhuhu..So there we were, hitting the road heading to Liege. We arrived at Liege at almost 11 pm in the night. After talking and drinking two cups of coffee they went off back to Brussels…Oh my…To En Adnan and Nurul…thankssssssssss a lot k..Next time kami datang lagi..both of you such a very nice person indeed!!!!!!!!Kami terhutang budi banyak je rasa,,huhuhu,,but we are glad to join the Eid celebration and I am full of happiness until now…hahahhaa..

Giving Birth story


I always scare when people talk about their experiences of giving birth. I cannot stand the 'cutting of the private part', the contraction and all the related things with delivery. Frankly, if I know in details about their traumatic experiences, my body seems can feel how the pain is. And my fragile spirit easily make me pass out. Even though I do not have any idea how terrible the pain is, but I do know it is terrible enough to put your life on the cracking egg. Well, that is me..heehhee.

My friend, En. Onn once told me about his real experience when he accompanied his wife in the labour room. He was there for almost an hour (and the truth was, he was about to reach the panic points in his 'waiting' session since there was some complication with his wife 's condition). Apparently, when he was there, he could hear clearly one of the patient (Indian lady) in the next room was screaming out loud with her healthy lungs while giving birth.The atmosphere was very chaos and then out of the blue, one nurse hurriedly rushed into the room with a stretcher. My friend was so scared just if that lady could not make it and he kept praying to GOD to save that lady's life.

In a few minute later, the same nurse was strolling out the stretcher from the room. And what a massive shocked to En. Onn to witness one gros Indian guy was laying on the stretcher instead! That guy was unconscious because of the traumatic experience in the labour room, like the blood, the 'cutting part' and everything. The nurse just left him outside, I mean just by the labour room's door.(He still unconscious on the stretcher k and nobody gave him any emergency treatment!) Hahaha..I guess, everybody was in a full hands so no more space to rescue the poor guy. Pity of his wife. But I think if I was there, I am pretty sure to give the poor guy a big laughs even though I am faint-hearted like him..hahaaha.

Well, I guess this phenomenon is going to happen if, the husband does not mentally and physically ready. Spouse is someone that should be there to welcome their new comer. To cherish your wife more by witness their pain to give you the most precious thing in the world. Oh dear...I do not know if I can get through the labour pain. But, I just knew I will somehow. Cannot wait to preggy again and experience it to myself....But, now I am getting better than I used to be. I do not want to think about it deeply until the time has come. Let nature take its course, I reckon!

'Empty vessels'


Hey guys! I have a question to ask. The question is sounds like this. What is the difference between 'hardworking and workaholic' with the ' great talkers'? What I mean by 'great talkers' is 'those people who talk a lot and are always teaching others, and they usually do not do much work'. In Malay term is 'orang yang betul-betul tahu buat kerja' dengan 'orang yang tahu membodek dan kelentong'. My personal experiences when I was working with private companies in the few years back made me recognize these types of people easily. Hardworking people normally talk less, work more but at the end they come out with the results and vice versa to the 'empty vessels'.

My former project manager was really suit in this 'kelentong' type of people. He knows how to blabber around, and if you people do not know him very well, you will think he is such an adorable and talented person. Just ask him, he will know everything. Even though sometimes he just talk nonsense like an idiot to the smart people. But, one thing is good for these people are, they can survive in any conditions. They can climb up to the top position in the company. Without hesitate, they are about or inclined to do everything like poker face just to achieve their mission in life.

Most of the 'empty vessels' normally have a little knowledge in something specifically, but they do know all. If you know what I mean! And they usually talk the most and make the greatest fuss. Like, they know this and that, they achieve this and that,
If you tell them your experience in doing 'let's say project A', straightaway, they will start all the craps by saying, they also did it before and better than you. All is about they are the best. No one else. .In the meetings, they will show off like they did everything to save the company and bla..bla..bla..But the truth is, they just use other people hard work and then claimed as theirs. What a shame people!

I do not know if the condition of this is happen or not in your students life, or your workplace but in my life, it did happen. For me to notice this type of 'empty vessels', does not take too long. For the first time it hard to tell. But after twice or thrice it will reveal and you just knew it. But why? The answer is because 'Empty vessels make the most noise'. And sometimes I was wondering, can we just cut all the crap and make our jobs properly to success in our life in today's world? Can we survive without' bodek and kelentong' to get the promotion? I think the answer is impossible and definitely not!

Reality or fantasy?

The idea of browsing about the benefit of the astronaut programme came across my mind. It is simply because, I cannot help myself from wondering and thinking where is the research report, or whatsoever related things from the return of Dr. Muzafar after the space programme. I know, our government claimed, the astronaut was sent to the space to do some research about the cancer illness. So what was exactly the research all about? All I can see from this programme is, he becomes more 'supermodel type' instead of I do not know the exact word to call him until now though. To use the word 'astronaut' is too demand enough I think. Maybe the right word is, 'a visitor to the space'. Nevertheless, since our government is insisting on address him as the astronaut so ok..just go with the flow, shall we? Only GOD knows how I am going to slap myself for that title.huhuhuh.

I am not here to condemn the effort by our government that costed us RM 95 millions ringgit to accomplish the space mission. The idea is to become one of the prestigous countries in order to position
Malaysia in the eyes of the world. But believe me; Malaysia is not well known enough throughout the whole world even though after the space programme! Nothing much changes before and after the programme. When I was in Malaysia, I was 100% believed when our government claimed; Malaysia is a well known country in the world's eyes. But for those who used to live in overseas, I dare say only little people know about Malaysia. And if they do know, they only know a little or less. Even though the simple and basic facts like where the exact location of our Malaysia is is on the map, about the existence of Malaysia and so on. It is ok though not to know the location, since some of you might say,’ we do not even know where Belgium is, so what is the big deal? I know it is not a big deal. But, what I want to emphasize here is we should live in a reality life. Stop dreaming and let the presence of our mind decide what the reality is and what the fantasy is. Do not too over proud of something that we actually should not. Personally, I think we should invest our tax payer’s money on something more profitable such as on the 'real' Research and Development field that our country far away left behind.

I know some of you could not agree more with my opinion but, just set aside our ignorance and pride. Just think carefully, Is Malaysia good enough to be known in the eyes of the world by sending 'a visitor to the space’ that costed us a bomb?

For the closure, I think I love the writing article from Australian writer for 'The Age' newspaper. He is actually telling the honest opinion that I have ever heard about Malaysia ASTRONAUT PROGRAMME

Click.

p/s - If some of you really do not know the world map, please take a look now in the internet. So tak la 'kemalu-maluan' bila org lain talk about the world map. Geografi kena tau k..Pengetahuan am tu..ciao!

Dreams


Bizarre dreams seem to take place in my sleeps every now and then. Likeness one of the must play film every time I shut my eyes out. Despite that, I hardly or barely remember how many times I can sleep peacefully, dreamless in my entire life. It sounds weird. But, yes it is true. Nightmares and sweet dreams keep taking turn in my daily night sleeps such as never ending mysterious world. Sometimes, I do hope my sweet dreams will never end. But, on the contrary, it always never reach the ending. It either I was waking up in the middle of my sleeping or I cannot remember what the ending were. Or if I remembered, I did not remember it well and I guess,my human memories fade by the time I woke up and it was frustrating like an unsolved mystery.

Last night, I dreamt about my late grandma. The dreamt was like this. My late grandma did not know that she is dead. That mean, she kept living like human being. But she did realize she is not normal as she used to be. Nobody in the family had nerves to tell her that she is actually dead. She kept mentioning to us that, everybody was ignoring her and asking why was her handphone on the dressing table in her bedroom was left uncharging for quite sometimes until the battery went dead and dusty. The reality was, my late grandma never ever had a mobile phone in her entire life. Hehehe. Actually nobody can see her. Only us, her closed family. It was quite a bizzard dreamt for me. I know it only just a dreamt but I cannot help myself preoccupied for the whole day. Nevertheless, I think it just about the time for me to alms and recite 'yassin' to her. May Allah bless her soul...Al fatihah..amin

Wait, the story does not end yet, there was another dreamt in the same night that I want to tale about.I guess I am a good dreamer after all..hehehe.. I dreamt of drinking two mugs of coffee. The coffee was the best coffee that I have ever had. When I woke up, I still can smell the aromatic. Crapppp..I am craving for coffee now.. Be right back! I need to indulge myself first before continuing my entry. A cup of cofee would be nice in the middle of the night to keep me awake..kikikiki..

Slurpp...Ok, let's continue. In spite of the weirdness, I do have a great dreams though! And dare I say, if I am a good writer or a film director, perhaps I can use the story line based on my dreams to write a novel or to produce a film. And I could win award from that. HAHAHHAH. In your dream, Nurul! Ok, what I want to say is 'mimpi tu mainan tidur' and wash your feet before you lie in bed la..and recite 'ayat quran' so that we will be 'looked after' for the whole night..Insya Allah..

Au revoir Mon Mari poisson

My husband fish in the fish tanks are dead. The causes of the death , still mystery..nantila kena buat post mortem..hahaahha..in my heart..guddddddd ikan dah mati..if not he will put 100% attention pd fish..sukeeeeee ikan mati!

My personal opinion about languages

Before moving to Belgium, my mind and heart were too stubborn to learn a new language, in my case is French. So, I will focus on French and English languages only in this entry k. I was telling myself, I will not going to learn French even Liege people use French as their first language. I kept refusing when Am told me to buy any relevant French books in advance, when we were in Manchester. I insinuated him by saying ' try to keep your intention to learn French to yourself k, I am not interested. I will stick to the gun to use English language to communicate with Liege people later on'. I was so pig headed and soulless in this matter. Eventually, Am was giving up to persuade me. He carried out learning alone and said, 'do not regret it later if you are having trouble in communication with French community'. I just gave him nonchalantly looked like an 'orang utan'..hehehhe.

Well, what to do? I was so proud to use only English as the medium of communication with foreigner. Well, you know how Malaysian people think about English, right?. In our people's mind are, English is a posh language. If you can speak very well, you are great! That the normal scenario in Malaysia. Am I right? But, I am not regret this condition k. At least we, as a Malaysian will improve ourselves in a communication skills in the eyes of the world..Cheewah..Unfortunately, one thing I cannot stand though, if people try to create, make or sound some 'accent' when use the English language. Such as, 'british accent', ' American accent' or whatsoever accents. I just afraid I will puke straightaway on your face if you guys do that..hahahaa..Just kidding but Come on k, if belacan takkan jadi cheese k! I was struggling to improve my English language to suit Malaysia condition when I return for good later. I was taking English class for almost two years and in fact, I was sitting for the exam and getting the certificate in the language.

My stubbornness finally disappeared in the thin air when one incident happened to me in the supermarket here. Well, lets me figured out the incident carefully in the right sequences k. The story was like this, one day I went to Delhaize to buy some groceries. I chose self check out counter to pay my items. When I was paying, accidently I pressed one number of recycle bag to collect point in my shopping card. Suddenly, the standby cashier at the self check out till came approached me and said in French something that I could not understand at all. I said to her, I did not understand French and could she tell me in English instead. You know what she did when I asked her that? She kept mumbling and pulling her face like b#tch and insisting on telling me in French what the fuss was all about. I knew for sure she was insulting and bad cursed me because I did understand one bad word that she said though! The word meant 'stupid person'. Can you imagine how my feeling was? I felt annoying and angry with her. I talked back to her in Malay since I had already lost my grip! For sure I bad language her either..haahahaa..

Truthfully, that is not the main point k. What I'd like to emphasize in this entry is, since that day I have changed my mind setting. I was urging my friend to looking for the place to learn French on behalf of me. Let's all the stupidest attitude of the old me be water under the bridge! So, here I am, a new me, in the middle of learning. I promised to myself, I will and must know how to speak French sooner or later. I do not want to glorify the only English language too much in my life. Never ever again. I can see how French people proud of their language. I know other people in the whole world will proud if foreigners try to learn and use their mother tongue language. It is does not matter at all if you have done the mistakes in the usage, since you dare to use them. So, to those who think like I was before, It just about the right time for you to rethink about it. For me all languages are posh if we, people appreciate the language itself. Like the proverb said, when in Rome do as a Roman! So, that is exactly what I am trying to do right now. To adapt myself with Belgian lor..

P/s-What the lady was trying to say was, I cannot simply pressed the number of the recycle bag, if I did not have any. In her mind, I was trying to cheat to get the extra point in my shopping card quickly and easily. So that, I can claim the prize shortly soon. In other word, she thought, I am a cheater.

New language and the mistakes I made ..

Have you guys ever done any mistakes when you used a new language? For me, I am getting used to do the stupid mistakes when I used French in my daily life. When I was in Namur, I want to ask the lady at the tourist info centre about the nearest interesting places or castle in Namur. So ,we can save budget and time by walking to that place.

Ok, the conversation was like this, où est les cheveux? Then I saw the face expression the lady gave me made me realized I said the wrong word.In French language, castle is Le chateau but I said Les cheveux instead. Oh crap, in english the sentence is sound like this,' where is the 'hair'?'..hahaahaa. It was not so bad though! I just cannot imagine if I wrongly pronounced the word Le cheveux like this, où est le cheval? The meaning in english is, where is the horse? Sooo teribble isn'it? No wonder she gave me the weird expression. Ok then, I corrected the mistake by asking the right word. She told me, the destination that we planned to visit was quite far and it was impossible to take a walk. Then she asked me, the mode of transport if I want to go there, And I answered, A pied instead of A voiture / A bus..She looked more confusing, suddenly I realized, again I made the second mistakes. A pied mean by foot. So how on earth I can go to the far distance place by foot. hehehehe..

So, now I will be more careful to use the right words in French, but it's ok..we learn from our mistakes, right? The more mistakes I made, the easier I will catch up the language...Hopefully la kan..InsyaAllah..

Handbag story..

I hate when it happened. What is 'it'? Ok, the thing is like this, every time I go shopping or thinking of doing something, Am seems to read what is lingering in my mind. For example, yesterday incident when we were in Namur. I told him that I want to buy a handbag. I was feeling like ages since the last time I bought a handbag. Boley caya ke? So, we hit all the shopping complex in Namur just to find the right handbag that I am dreaming of. From one shop to another, nothing seemed to suit my taste. If yes, the price attached on the bag made me just walked away from the shop. Well, so you know, the perfect and beautiful items always come together with the higher price.

When I almost gave up, I said to him, 'let's try this shop, maybe I will fancy one of their collections.' Luckily, he just agree and tagged along into the shop. Truthfully, I fancy one of the handbag in that shop. The green colour and the design of the handbag just look alike my lost River Island bag, that I like too bits! The one I was shipping from Manchester to Belgium when we were moving in here. Unfortunately, we lost all the boxes while they are in the hands of the postal services. ( five boxes to be precise, and we spent almost 200 pound for the fees) . We could not trace them since all the boxes had already left U.K. So, I am not complaining. Maybe those were not meant to be ours. Perhaps, it was foreordain to be lost in shipping. Something happened for a reason, right?

Now, back to my story...Am was trying to refrain me from buying that green bag. The reason he gave me was simple and dare I say it not just a reason, it was a fact. hehehee..He said that if I bought that green bag, sooner or later, I will ask him to buy me another one with the different colour. Some of you may think, why another one? Aha, the answer is, how many colours are really blend very well with green? I mean in terms of the outfit. Me, personally I think the colour can suit the green bag is limited. It not appropriate to carry green bag with orange or purple outfit, right? Well, maybe he was right..but what I cannot stand was, the way he read my mind. Like a book, I can tell!

Actually, I have to admit that, I was just about thinking of buying green colour outfit or perhaps another handbag if I bought that green one..Hahahaha..Pity me. Don't worry k, I did not buy it. The weird thing was, I never regret of not buying the bag. Maybe I am in the right track of piling up saving in my account instead of spending them to unwanted items. I think, I am getting wiser in handling money. Am I ?

Seriously, I need to save some money to settle my debt. Not too much in debt but still, I want to pay it all , so I will free from the debt fetter. It does take awhile before getting used with the saving habit. But, I will try no matter how difficult it is going to be...InsyaAllah...

Itchiness

Have you ever heard about 'kelopak garam'? It kind of skin problem but not in skin disease's category, and it can make you feel very itchy indeed. The causes of this problem have never been classified precisely, but some sources that I read were saying, it can occur because of our skin is allergy by the surroundings, eating habit etc.

Since the last two days, I was suffering with it and my skin was turning reddish and blotching everywhere especially on the top body. It was soo itchy cum uncomfortable and I kept scratching like a mad monkey until its bleading and leaving scar on my skin. The thing was, I kept applying special cream for skin problem repeatedly all over the blotched area but it was not making any difference. It just made my skin getting worst. I was showing and asking Am while wondering what has happened to my skin? Suddenly, he popped in with the words ' lapar garam', and he said, the only way to cure this problem was, by applying a mixture of cooking salt, turmeric and cooking oil. I was insisting him to make those things and applying it on my skin. After a while, I can feel the difference. I nevermore felt itchy. The itchiness has disappeared and I fell asleep for the whole night with those mixtures on my body. Believe it or not, it never been better..hehehehhe. Nevertheless, it was ok since I can sleep like baby.

I asked Am once last night, how he got the idea of making the mixtures to cure my itchiness. And he said, the tips is coming from elderly people. So, I guess that is why elderly tips become handy sometimes. And you can save money too, from buying the medicine. This experience makes me appreciate elderly tips soo much since!

Namur


As in my entry before, we went off to visit Namur for the first time since we have been in Belgium.


Namur is the capital city of Walonnia, the French speaking area in Belgium. It has its own charm and characteristic that can attract tourist to come to visit this place. The signature thing of Namur is the countryside, with the picturesque view from the top of the citidel.


This town is located at the southern part of Belgium and only 50 minutes from Liege city centre. Actually, Mozat was our main destination at the first place. Unfortunately, due to the several reasons we chose Namur instead. And I was glad we did that because, we were totally indulging ourselves into the countryside, and we were closed to the nature as what we really wanted and planned in a few days back.


The medival town, castle and building on the top view of the citidel were soo lovely. Namur's castle is surrounding by the park, enhace the beauty of the castle itself. The park has been decorating beautifully since, and suit the medival age period of history. My wishful thinking was, to stay there even for one night! How I wish we could. But, arghh...in my dream..there was no hotel or whatsoever nearby the place. Thus, I ended up being in Liege and updating my blog to share my experience with my blog's visitor. Well, maybe we will return to Namur later, if we choose Mozet for our next countryside visit.

We are bored I guess? Thus, we are planning to visit Namur later and enjoy the countryside..Ok hope the weather is permitting for the outdoor activities...Ciao!

Rakyat Malaysia kekal nikmati 6 bulan perjalanan tanpa visa di Britain

05/11/2008 9:08pm

KUALA LUMPUR 5 Nov. — Rakyat Malaysia masih diberi kebenaran menikmati tempoh melancong enam bulan tanpa visa ke Britain walaupun terdapat perubahan dalam peraturan mengenai visa United Kingdom (UK), kata Pesuruhjaya Tinggi British ke Malaysia Boyd McCleary.

Katanya beliau memberi jaminan bahawa para pelancong sentiasa dialu-alukan untuk mengunjungi Britain, dan sehingga ini tidak ada peraturan yang memerlukan rakyat Malaysia memiliki visa umum untuk memasuki Bitain.

“Pelancong Malaysia ke UK masih menikmati tempoh perjalanan enam bulan bebas visa. Kumpulan yang perlu memohon visa ketika ini adalah kalangan mereka yang merancang untuk tinggal lebih lama dari enam bulan, mungkin untuk bekerja atau belajar,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.

McCleary mengeluarkan kenyataan itu ekoran beberapa laporan media sejak kebelakangan ini mengenai perubahan dalam peraturan mengenai visa UK.

Beliau menjelaskan bahawa UK sedang memperkenalkan ’Points Based System’ untuk akses pemohon visa, sama seperti sistem yang digunakan oleh kerajaan Australia, dan ia akan diperkenalkan secara berperingkat pada bulan-bulan akan datang, bergantung kepada kategori visa.

Beliau berkata peringkat pertama diperkenalkan hujung bulan Jun lepas dan peringkat berikutnya yang meliputi pekerja mahir dengan tawaran kerja akan dimulakan hujung bulan ini.

Berhubung masalah pendatang haram ke UK, Mc Cleary berkata UK sedang menangani masa itu di bawah Visa Waiver Test, dan bagi rakyat Malaysia, kerajaan UK sedang bekerjasama rapat dengan pihak berkuasa Malaysia.

“Satu keputusan akan dibuat berhubung hasil proses ini awal tahun depan,” katanya.

Isnin lepas Menteri Luar Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim dilaporkan berkata rakyat Malaysia yang tinggal lebih tempoh dan yang bekerja tanpa kebenaran di UK perlu pulang ke tanah air.

Info

Malaysia mungkin hadapi peraturan visa baru EU

KUALA LUMPUR 4 Nov. - Malaysia mungkin berhadapan peraturan visa baru daripada Kesatuan Eropah (EU) jika 30,000 rakyatnya yang tinggal melebihi tempoh di United Kingdom (UK) masih gagal pulang ke negara ini.

Menteri Dalam Negeri, Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar berkata, kerajaan Britain sedang meneliti untuk menggunakan peraturan visa baru ke atas 11 buah negara termasuk Malaysia kerana menyalahgunakan visa dan tinggal melebihi tempoh yang dibenarkan.

"Mereka ini perlu segera memberi maklum balas untuk pulang. Kita minta mereka patuh undang-undang untuk elakkan negara EU kenakan peraturan terhadap kita,'' katanya pada sidang akhbar selepas merasmikan mesyuarat Ketua-Ketua Pengarah Imigresen ASEAN dan Ketua-Ketua Bahagian Hal Ehwal Konsul Kementerian-Kementerian Luar (DGICM) di sini hari ini.

Jumaat lepas, Syed Hamid mendedahkan terdapat lebih 30,000 rakyat Malaysia yang tinggal melebihi tempoh di United Kingdom dinasihatkan segera pulang ke tanah air sebelum kerajaan negara itu mengambil tindakan undang-undang terhadap mereka.

Tambah beliau, melalui perundingan dua hala, kerajaan Britain memberikan insentif tiket penerbangan sehala percuma untuk menggalakkan rakyat Malaysia pulang dalam tempoh Julai hingga Disember ini.

Jelasnya lagi, kira-kira 271,000 orang dari negara ini memasuki United Kingdom setiap tahun dan keperluan untuk menggunakan visa hanya akan membebankan rakyat.

Oleh itu, katanya lagi, pemberian insentif tiket penerbangan sehala percuma oleh kerajaan Britain sebenarnya banyak membantu dan mendapat sambutan positif daripada rakyat negara ini di sana.

"Kita diberi tempoh enam bulan untuk menunggu kepulangan rakyat Malaysia di sana dan keputusan penggunaan visa pada tahun depan,'' jelasnya.

Syed Hamid berkata, kesungguhan yang ditunjukkan oleh negara-negara lain dalam usaha memastikan tiada pihak yang dapat tinggal secara haram di United Kingdom seharusnya dicontohi rakyat negara ini yang bermigrasi di sana.

Katanya, rakyat negara ini yang memasuki United Kingdom diminta jujur dan tidak membuat perkara yang menyalahi undang-undang atau tersasar daripada tujuan asal mereka ke sana.

"Jangan cakap hendak jadi pelajar, tetapi apabila sampai ke sana bekerja dan tinggal melebihi tempoh. Begitu juga sebaliknya,'' ujarnya.

It has never been easier!


Belgium? The procedure has never been easier, especially when you need to deal with the City Administrative. For us as a student and the dependant, we need to renew our Identity Card at the City Administrative yearly. But, bear in mind, their procedures always change from time to time. The last renewal date for the ID for the next semester is 31st October 2008, to be precise is tomorrow.

As usual, we went to the City Administrative to renew our ID last week. Apparently, we still unable to renew it since there was three documents that needed to be provided by us. The stupidest thing was, they did not mention it in the letter issued by them in a few days earlier. So, again we went back home to make all the documents ready such as, the mediacal report (spouse only), the letter of the good conduct by Belgium police (spouse only) and the health insurance letter by the insurance company (spouse only). We were back and forth from one department to another just to get the things ready before 31st October. Unfortunately, the police report will only be ready for collection by next week! So what the heck? The last renewal date is tomorrow. So, again we headed to the City Administrative just now to ask about it.

When we were there, we proceeded Am's application first, since all the documents for him has already completed. The registration went through easily without any harm or whatsoever. When it was my turn, we told the officer that only the police report is still pending for me. So what should we do ? furthermore, the last renewal date for the ID is tomorrow!

The officer, "well, the date is doesn't matter, you still can come after 31st October 2008 to renew it." Ok good news then! My heart was thudding in powerful beats of excitement..Yes I was so happy because I thought they will send me back to Malaysia for good at the first place..huhuhu..But, before reciting thankful to GOD, suddenly..

The officer , "Did the policeman come to check the condition of your house before?"

And confidently I answered him with my beam face...

I said, "yes they did come,but the policeman just left a card and requested us to go to the police station instead!".

The officer, "well...even you got the police report by the next week, you still can't proceed the application because the policeman must come and check the house first, and now what I can do is, give an order to the police to visit your house first. This is compulsory! to confirm you as a husband and wife live in there together. And then after that you can bring all the relevant documents to renew your ID."

Oh my GOD! I can feel adrenaline came rushing in so fast made me felt dizzy. I was so angry with the fussiness. It is so bizarre procedures! Very bizarre indeed!

What is the difference eh? Yes we are married but, does our marriage certificate is not good enough for them? For your info, in Belgium the ID card is the most important things. They do not even look at your international passport k! Only the stupid ID is count in here! Oh dear..Dealing with the City Administrative is never been easier. Trust me!

The officer told us that, we cannot travel out from Belgium country before we get the ID. Which is takes two months to be processed. Yes, it is to Am. But not for me eh? until the policeman comes and proceeds all the procedures like bla bla bla..It will take..emm.. I do not know how long, but I can tell up to three months!! huhuhuh...I am so boredddddddddd with the system! The silver lining is? Nope..nothing! just a thick piece of shit!

A friend in need is a friend indeed


I have to warn you about my lengthy entry, but I think it worth to read until the last dot.Hehehe..Like English proverb says, "A friend in need is a friend indeed"..What exactly does this mean? Surely the person helping the needy one is the true friend. Someone who comes to your aid when you're in difficulty is a true friend. That is the story that I want to share it here. My real experience when I really need a help from my two types of friends.

I can vividly remember in the year of 2002. I just resigned from my first job in Seremban, and I was looking for a new job. Suddenly, I have seen the advertisement in the paper for the post of Civil Engineer. It said, the interested applicant can walk in on the certain date and time. So, I said to my self, 'why don't I give it a try?, since I jobless, so who knows? Maybe this job is foreordain to be mine'. So, impatiently I rang my friend , 'S'. ( actually, I met her when I was in Matriculation 2 in Penang, and we were pretty closed! I can tell.) I told 'S' about the walk in interview and everything. I asked 'S' whether she could collect me at the bus station and drove me to the interview place (since, I didn't know anybody in Kedah during that time ). I also told 'S' that I need to overnight at her house after the interwiew that was held in the evening. I was pretty knackered to return back to KL at the same day. She said 'ok, no problem'. So, there I was!

In a few days later, I received a called from that company, The HR was saying that I got the job. I was so over the moon. So, I kept thinking, where should I headed to for the first day in Kedah before finding a house and everything, I did not have a car and friends to help me, except 'S'! So, in a guilty feeling, I rang her to asked for her help again. I was saying that I got the job and for the first 2 days I need to stay at her place before I could find a house. Only for two days! Not more than that! So, here the thing has started. When 'S' heard I need to stay at her house for 2 nights, she tried to avoid from answering my called. When the third time I called, her auntie was picking up the line and straightaway said to me, "this house only has 3 bedrooms. Plus, we have to take care of our sick grandma, so there is no extra place for you, especially if you want to stay for quite a while". I was feeling annoying with the statement by her auntie. Kindly, I said " It only for 2 nights, not more than that". So, with the awkward feeling, I stayed at 'S' house for the first night. Tomorrow in the early morning, I went off to my new office and when I was there, I asked my officemate to drive me around to survey for the 'house to rent' nearby our office. Of course, It was impossible to get the house in 1 day. I was at my wits end. I really did not want to spend extra night at 'S' place. No more! I have my self-respect k.

Suddenly, I knew from a friend of mine that Zura, is from Kedah. So, I called my friends around to get Zura's contact number. Fortunately, I managed to reach her. I told her all about my problems. Suddenly, she was offering me to stay at her house. She said, I can stay there if I could not find the house. I was totally, utterly flattered. I was thankful to GOD for give her in my needful. Even, I barely knew her that time, but she was so sincere to help me. I stayed at her's for almost three months before finding an affordable house. Since then, I indebted with her...I know, I can't pay her kindness. I really glad to know her as one of my closed friends. So, Zura, if you come across my blog and read this entry, I really want you to know that, I really appreciate what you have done to me and I will do my uttermost to help you, if you need me later in the future! Thanks k..to you and your family. Thank you sooo much! Oh my God, I feel so melancholy when I write this entry..huhuhu..

The moral of this story is, you do not know whose your real friend is, until you are in difficulties and they are willing to offer and lend you a hand! To 'S', until today, I still can't erase the words that your auntie said to me, but I still thankful though when you were helping me with the interview. To ask for your help again in the future is totally NOT, NEVER EVER! You, people can call me cold, heartless or stubborn bitch but, you will know the feelings when you are in my shoes! To Zura, Again..thankssss byk2..aku doakan jasa ko tuhan je balas..aminnnn

Real tips and advice?

Have you been noticing that your dress size has been creeping up a number or two? Are your favorite jeans getting a little snug? If you answered yes to any of these question, then you may be considering losing a little weight to help your body to get back into shape. But (as most of us know!) weight loss is not an easy thing to attempt, and, if done improperly, it can be leaded to serious health risks.

Me, myself, I am piling up a few pounds..To be exact 4kg. I can't continue my exercise regime since the weather is getting colder. I can't stand the outside weather without my jacket and gloves. So how on earth I can exercise with so-called 'heavy outfits and bleak weather'? So, I need any ideas from my readers what is the best way that you ever used to loose some weight. The cliche advivce does not count in here. What I mean by cliche advice is, give the tips without try it on to yourselves. I want the reality and experimented advice how you really loose your weight. If possible with the proof of before and after, pics..hehehhhe..Is it too much to ask? Bukan apa, as a motivation la! That's all.

Currently, I reduce the intakes of-

1. Rice-only once a day before 7.pm.
2. No heavy foods at night, just plain water and if I am too hungry, I go for biscuits or a slice of bread.

I really am feeling annoying and inferiority complex with my current weight. huhuhu..Any ideas anybody?

Antwerpen Open house

Natrah and I, thanks to abg mazli for the pic above

Yes, I was feeling knackered but full of joys, right after coming back from the open house in Antwerp. We went there in the early morning and met the others Malaysian in Belgium at Antwerp Central train station. Our big agenda before going to the open house was stopping at the two bargain shops to take a look around and maybe buy something if we fancy it. (Oh..yes, for pretty sure we bought something at those two shops!) It was soo good to walk around in the town with our bunch of friends. To share the tales, stories and stupid jokes while talking and laughing. After sightseeing and shopping, we headed to Abang Mazli House to fill in our stomach that were rumbling like hell. Even we had difficulties to step in our feet in the house (since there were soo many people), but it was worth it when we were serving with plenty of nice and tasty foods like soto, hainan chicken rice, nasi lemak and etc. Well, hope next year Eid is merrier than this year, like the proverb says"the more the merrier!"...hahaha..Very nice day indeed!

Lets all these pics talk for themselves..



Birthday boy..Helmi ..
Natrah made a surprised to her husband..bon anniversaire a vous..helmi.
Guests were talking and eating
Gossipping eh?

Drifting away

Ok, that was not my cup of tea before..but, it is now..I am soo fanatic with my new novels collection by Sophie Kinsella that I ordered via my friend, Faz in Manchester. I 'm spending hours and days in reading. It feels like I am living in the strange and other wordly place everytime I read them. Well, I am completely obsessed that I would straightaway continue my reading as soon as I wake up in the morning until midday, like a psycho. I just about skived from French class just simply to finish my third novels. Well, of course I did not. With Am at home there was no chance to pull sickie or play truant..hehehee. Apparently, another 1 novel to go before I can totally relax.

About the novels, I used to read the reviews about the interesting way the novelist, sophie produced her novels. I wasn't so sure about buying her novels before, but once I read 'can u keep a secret?', I started to love the novel to bits. Truthfully, I was soo taken aback by how good the storey line in every novel is. I can't refrain myself from continuing to read the rest of my collection. I am totally, utterly gobsmacked with them. I was drifting in various emotions of happy, sad, angry and etc..I was smiling, pulling my face and giggling like somebody was tickling me, while I was reading them.

In spite of that, I have to speed up the reading process because I have plenty of reading materials like Marie Clare, Cosmo and french magazine that are still waiting to be read. Plus, a new french learning grammar book that I must read before the test soon. I am almost ignoring my french studies since I am glued to the novels. I finished 3 novels, 'can u keep a secret' , 'shopaholic and sister' and 'shopaholic and baby'. Now, I am in the middle of 'remember me' and I have already told Am to order the other four of Sophie Kinsella novels via Amazon's website. How addicted I am! I will be the new fan of Sophie. I will indeed..

Our open House

Open house was held at our place yesterday for the first time ever since we were in a foreign land. The idea of the open house has popped into our minds since we were still in Manchester, but due to several reasons, the idea was just left as an imagination instead..hehehhe..well, this year, it did happen. We invited almost 25 people to join our party and a million thanks to those who came. Appreciate it sooo much..

Well, I was cooking up a storm since 8 am and finished the preparation at 12pm. Just about the time right before our guests entered our main door. I cooked nasi tomato together with ayam masak kicap ala mamak, ayam masak ros, beef curry, pan fried vegy and some desserts, complimentary from our friends...

Since I am in no mood for leghty entry, so enjoy the pics..rejoice!

Again, thanks to all for coming ...
