A tak-sedar-diri-byk-keje day!

Its 1.34am now and I'm in school STILL finishing the report. Sheesh! I really suck at translating English to BM and vice versa. The fact that right now, I haven't slept for exactly 43 hours doesn't actually help that much does it. I've already consumed 5 tins of Nescafe Latte and about to take my next dose of it if someone doesn't stop me at once!

Anyway, I admit, it might me a tad bit my own fault. I had promised Ad and Yee to go to the IPS Exhibition in Penang and take the 1st shift there. We had planned to go to Gurney after that (and this was waaaay before I knew about the report) and somehow, I still didn't wanna miss it..

So there I was.. I had stayed in school until 6.30am and only went home after Subuh prayers. Then I got ready before going out to pick up Ad and Yee and go to Penang for the exhibition. I was already a bit sleepy now but Aje came to cheer me up with his usual jokes.

Oh yeah, something unusual DID happen which left me, Ad and Yee confused.. and laughing our heads off. This 'incident' delayed our initial plan of going to Gurney right after our shift ended (1.00pm) and we only started our journey there around 2.30pm.

During that incident, we went to Chowrasta. Otw there, Ad noticed something.. apparently, public phones are still in fashion. Seems the MPPP decided to spruce up public phones and the telephone booths. I had tried to capture it on my phone but there we too many cars here. But I think you can see the kindergarten-colorful phones in the booth decorated with some sort of design here.. on second thought, am I the only one who found this fascinating?

Anyway, when we arrived at Chowrasta, I felt this great big sense of deja vu and suddenly saw myself, Misa and Amoi going around the shops here in search of old issues of Dragon Ball comics. Here, we bought them at RM2 per book.. quite a bargain, huh? Especially for us then school goers. Ami was the one who told me about these second hand book stores when she bought boxes of the Sweet Dreams series (also sold at RM2 per book). After that, whenever we went out, we were sure to come here in search for books. My friend As once even hunted for the medical handbook (?) here and suprises of suprises, they had a good copy (just like brand new.. honest!!) for her. I couldn't resist sending Misa a picture of one of our favourite stores there..

..then there was the magazine stand where we almost always bought our Dragon Ball, Dragon Quest, Yuyu Hakusho, Slam Dunk bla bla.. I sent a picture to both Amoi and Misa and both instantly recognized the magazine stand..

..but when Misa comented on how much she missed Maxim's sandwiches, I really laughed out loud. Just merely 5 minutes before her sms, I had just told Ad and Yee that Maxim's was our favourite bakery back then hehe.. Misa, awak mesti ingat kan, sebelum balik je, meluru kite gi Maxim's beli sandwich ngan bruchetta! Tapi tadi tak sempat la nak singgah.. :(

Anyway, fast forward to Gurney. We arrived around 3.30pm and quickly grabbed some lunch. Then I went to buy my facila cleanser and ended up buying the Total Turnaround as well. Lame giler dah tak pakai bende ni. Check out what else I received for my purchase hehe..

Then, as usual I got the vouchers and I bought this..

..for my bracelets and bangles! Yeay! I already had one before, bought at Lovely Lace..

..but it couldn't hold all my bracelets, thus this second purchase. The price on the tag was RM56.90 but I only paid RM1.20 heheh..

Before heading back here, we went donut hunting and THIS, dear readers, WAS my dinner (Half-eaten Aline there!). Now all are safely in my tummy, except for three quarters of the pinky one there :D

I actually have THREE classes tomorrow. 9.30-11.00am, 11.15 to 12.45pm and 5.15 to 6.45pm. Hmm, wondering if I'd be able to stay awake during teaching?!?! Or should I take a couple more doses of Nescafe, Dr Ina?

You know one thing I know I'd hate: People telling me they hate me..

You know another thing that I hate on a similar level: Telling people I hate them!

So it bugs me when I've tried to as politely as possible to say, "Actually, I despise you" with sugar coated words (sprinkled with a bit of pepper and horn salt* perhaps?!!?) AND to have that person say ,"Sorry, it won't happen again" causing me in to be in this false sense of relief for a few hours before they bug me to make me tell them I HATE THEM (or in this case, I HATE YOU!) again.

For God's sake, you don't expect my answer to different everytime you ask me the EXACT SAME QUESTION do you?!?! AND STOP forcing me to hate you even more!!!

My friend, Dzul recently had an entry in his blog. The title made me laugh at that time but I now realize, he is better at putting things into words as he had sum-up all my words here in two simple words:

Berambus boley?!!?

And dude, piss off will ya!

P/S Horn salt is a Norweigan type of salt. I think its similar to the smelling salt people use to revive people from faints

Still can't believe how I was tricked into being an MC

A few weeks ago, we had this meeting to choose the committees for our Stress Management Workshop. I don't mind giving a hand in these committee but..

You see, for the past 3 years, I've always been in the food committee (coz I'm chubby perhaps?!) or the souvenier committee. I've grown quite sick of being in these two committee because eventhough they sound like 'easy jobs', they are actually the ones with the most small-details-you-can't-afford-to-miss.

In fact, two years ago we had this Thesis Writing Workshop and I had voiced my need to NOT be in the food committee. Remy had asked me why, to him its an easy job. Ye laaa, Remy had always been the leader, never one in the smaller committees so I guess he doesn't know the hassle of being in these small committees. Not that he's not a good leader, he's a GREAT one, in fact. This was proved by his willingness to be in the smaller committess instead, thus choosing the food committee along with Erwan.

The workshop was only for a day and I laughed out loud when I saw Remy and Erwan 'passed out' on the post grad sofa after lunch. Amik korang, tau pun bende tu penat hahah.. w/pun name nye AJK makanan, cam senang, tapi bende kecik² tu banyak kene jage. But I still pitied them for their first attempt in the konon² girly committee when the food for lunch was not enough and they had to go out and buy some. They thought they didn't have to supervise the food during the breaks when I told them, THAT was one of the small things they had to do. As a result, the foreigners took more lauk than they could eat, wasting it in the end la kannnn.. sape nak makan lebih diorg! Sakit ati tul!

Anyway, we had a good laugh about it haha.. and never again did anyone try to force me to be in the food committee. Instead, everyone took turns.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when abg Fadzil had asked who'd volunteer to be in the food committee, I just looked away. Even when he asked about the souveniers jugak Ayu buat tatau.. alasan: Ayu nak keje mencabar skit hahah! Kunun la kaaaannn.. in the end, Irnis and Dayah was in the food committee while Ad and Yee was in charge of the souveniers.

I asked to be in the registration committee but abg Fadzil said: "Hang tak cukup lawa!" Cehhhhh..

Near the end of the meeting, we remembered we still didn't have an MC.

*to be continued*

Intruder alert! Intruder alert!

I had a horrid suprise this morning.. one I hope to NEVER encounter again.

Last night, as obvious from my entry, I stayed at school after eating the yummy burger. Had a few small things to do regarding our Stress Management Workshop next week AND had a round of games to play hahah..

It was only at 12.21am did I realize the time so I rushed back home, not wanting to miss the midnite movie TV3 seems to be playing every week now. This month is the Rocky special so yesterday (or more like this morning) was Rocky IV. I'm not actually a fan of Stallone but I've never seen these movies and since I don't have anything better to do on weekends, I usually plonk myself in front of the tv for any movie they play for the night.

It was around 2.30am that the movie ended to I went to take my pre-sleep wudhu and got ready for bed. After reciting the usual surahs and ayats I do before sleep, I managed to get into dreamland without the hassle of tossing and turning. But I DID mumble to myself when I realized my 'beloved' neighbour had left their porch lights on, thus making my bedroom very 'bright' indeed. This annoyed me a bit as I love it pitch dark when sleeping. Still, being very sleepy, I just went to bed.

Suddenly I was awaken by a knocking sound. At that time, I was sure it was the sound of knocking on the window pane but now I'm not sure what. I grabbed the clock at my bedside and noticed it was 3.35am. Thinking I had heard one of the local tomcats, I drifted off to sleep in no time. A few minutes later I was awoken again by the same sound. Feeling a bit annoyed (especially when I remembered how the dogs outside my house had made quite a ruckus earlier), I went up to the window just outside my bedroom and started to open it..

..and I screamed!

There, just outside my bedroom window was a face looking right at me, with hands on my window pane. It actually helped that my neighbours had switched on the light but in my haste to slam the window panes shut, I only managed to see a bespectacled chubby and fair face (which when I try my darnest to remember now, I keep seeing a caucasian version of Ultraman.. WITH the mask on!)

When I peeked into the living room (which is next to my bedroom), I noticed the same face looking through the missing window pane and I freaked out.

My heart was pounding as I grabbed my phone and rushed to the middle room of the house and I stood there clutching my phone, my mind blank not knowing what to do next. I couldn't even think of WHO I could call at this time and I ended up sending smses to Ad, Puga and Sharil, hoping one of them would reply so I could call back (The bangang me was afraid of waking them up! Mangkuk punye Ayu!! Of course la pagi ni kene 'marah' with them sebab bleh fikir takmo kaco diorg tido in an emergency camtu..)

And of course la jugak, takde sape bgn if you sms je kan.. unless la tone for the sms tu nyaring and panjang giler, OR if it sounds like your alarm clock. It was only after a few minutes, after I calmed down a bit (Calm down pun, jantung cam nak terkeluar jugak.. I felt as if the intruder could hear my heart beat!) that I thought of dialing 999.

I couldn't even speak, I was almost in tears and my voice was so shaky, I couldn't recognize it but the operator was very patient and helped connect me to the nearest police station. By then, the intruder must've cabut la already kan.

The police officer called me as they headed towards my house and I guess he sensed the panic in me so he stayed on the line until they were in front of my house. After checking around, finding no one (Suprise!!), I went out to them to give the report. They were very kind and it helped to clear my mind a bit. I was a bit afraid if they thought it was a crank call since the intruder had fled but the pak cik police assured me he understood that maybe the intruder had ran away.

I didn't know if I was relieved (That it proves I wasn't doing a crank call) or more horrified (That there actually WAS an intruder) when we found the fingerprints of the person on my dusty window pane. When they asked me to describe the person, it took my whole will to not say "fair looking Ultraman with a mask as his actual face".

After triple checking, the officers asked me to go inside and lock all doors. I didn't sleep in my room after that but just stayed in the middle room of my house, willing the morning to come as quickly as possible. I even locked the middle room.. just in case!

Around 6.30am, I was brave enough to go outta the room. Besides, I had to perform my Subuh prayers. After I had finished, I noticed that it was already dawn so I bravely ventured outside. I didn't notice if the intruder took anything but there was a suspiscious puddle of I-dunno-what near the front tyres of my car. And from the looks of it, it was poured or something.. you know the small splatters of liquid you get when you pour something? THAT was what was around the puddle.

Now that its broad daylight, I feel a bit brave.

Three things bug me though..
1. Why was the intruder knocking on my window, as if intentionally wanting to wake me up?
2. Why was the light of my neighbours porch turned off when the police had arrived? You'd think they heard me scream or something but their house was very quiet when the police tried to peer inside their compound.
3. Why didn't I hear the sound of a car or motorcycle (if the inturder fled in it) while waiitng for the police to arrive?

I am sooo not looking forward to nightfall!

I am VERY, VERY, VERY grateful to Yee. After her incident with the P******** (why is it that we have problems with the foreigners here?), she had bought me and Ad some pepper sprays. Being the berlagak me, I had kept mine at school, sure that I won't need it but right now, I'm taking it everywhere I go!

Workstation tag?!?

This is a first hahah..

As tag yang buh gambo, this is my second la. Tp tak penah pun kene tag on my workstation. But there's a first to everything kan so here's my cube. Sorry that I can't display a neater cube hahah.. like I said a few entries ago, dalam dapat buang sampah satu plastik beg hitam besar tu, sy nye cube cam tadek beze pun.. Uhh, masih kecewe!

Anyway, this is the view of my cube dari pintu depan bilik postgrad. See the comics on my partition. Those are from I had pasted them during the final stages of my MSc as I kept being distracted by people peeping into my cube (Ye la, mine is the first visibly occupied cube so indirectly, I'm the kaunter pertanyaan for the room) Tp upenye lagi teruk! After pasting them, laaaaaagi ramai benti at my cube sebab nak bace the comics.. cehhh!

Ni plak view from abg Fadzil's cube. The entrance to my cube la kan.. iyerr, masih ade cartoons in front of it. Mane la orang tak benti bace Ayu oiiii.. very lousy idea la you had then haha.. Oh ye, bola dalam cube itu bukan untuk disepak ye. Given by Izati when she was still horrified by the idea I had watched football for a while. Atas skit tu is the sign I had put after the 'Nescafe incident'.. uhh, kecik la pulak rasenye!

Haaa.. lets get up close and personal with the sign here. Pic courtesy of Sharil. Tah bile tah dia amik gambo ni untuk dibuat bahan gelak. Huh.. tak patut!

This is my actually workstation. PC ni dah lame, eversince my MSc.. tapi dah orang bagi, amik je la kan.. Jangan complain banyak la Ayu heheh.. When I first started my PhD, Dr Farhan had asked if I wanted a new pc. Tp PC ni ade sentimental value la kot, siang malam ngadap mase writing for my thesis so sayang la jugak nak berpisah.

The bear on top to hadiah dari Yun for my 2* tak ingat birthday. The kangaroo and koala bear pulak adiah from Bebe when he went to Australia a few years back. Tetibe je dpt parcel and tengok ade 2 menatang cute ini. Sgt suke hehe.. Kat belakang those two, ade this musical frame from kak Wahid for my birthday jugak a few years back (jugek tak ingat birthday ke berape!)

Erkkk, adeh! tak pasan plak Oreos I makan tadi tak simpan before taking the pictures.

Di sebelah PC ku ini terdapat dinding ini yang mempunyai pelbagai bende yang tidak dapat dikategorikan. There's Yun, Ana, As and Afizal's addresses, a few quotes I like, IC numbers of Izati, Ikram and Adi (nape I simpan ek Adi?), acc num Izati (kes mintak duit lah ni hehe..), titles of books I want to buy, Dunkin Donut Garfiled card, the lyrics for the song My Wish by Rascal Flatts, picture of me and my siblings minus Iwan sbb dia tak balik raya time tu and another picture of us eating laksa at Farah's house, id and password for Neopets of Dgon and Ramlah, in case they ask me to collect their freebies, two colourful notes from Dgon to me (thanx Dgon! :)), ticket to Muzium Diorama Mahsuri (cut me some slack la.. 1st time I went to Langkawi nih heheh..) and a Melaka book mark.. errkk, ade lagi ke ek?

Eh, cable tenet tu nmpk la pulak hehehehehe..

This one below plak the wall near the 'entrance' of my cube yang nasib baik tak dirosakkan semase incident 'Nescafe' itu. Mostly it has souveniers my friends have given me, keychains, bookmarks and stuff. But what I treasure most is the photo collage here. It has pictures of my Carebears, me and our winning team for the JKR Treasure Hunt, me and my juniors during a motivational course at MRSM Transkerian, my degree convo with kak Wahid, the hands of me and my juniors during one jom-amik-gambo-tangan-reramai pose, a picture of us at the bus station where everyone had lowered their body a bit after I told them I hate being the shortest in the picture (Hahaha.. I love this!), a picture of me and arwah Tok Hassan, picture of me, Adi, Is, Uncle Maarof and Dayang eating durian at Menora and so many more. There's even passport pictures of me I had put chronologically which many times have been the butt of jokes here haha..

Oh ye, kenape Ayu byk kotak? The printer box is for when I have to return this printer to Dr Farhan (we had bought it with the grant.. agak² dia mau bg trus tak kat me nanti?!?!) and the smaller box beside it contains only half of the raw data for my MSc. Nak anto gi recycle centre sebenarnye tu.

This one plak is my file/book rack yang sungguh kurang buku. The read hard bound book is my MSc thesis, the other book are manuals I used in my study. HCM 94, HCM2000, MHCM, Arahan Teknik bla.. bla.. Eh, my undergraduate thesis pun ade la (But the one I 'curik' form Dr Farhan.. nak copy tak copy² lagik!). The files contain journals and papers yang sudah lame tidak berusik.

Erkk, baru pasan limau balik Yana kasik tadi ade atas tu tepi mug merah Lie kasik..

Oh ye jugek. Not all cubes ade settee cam mine. Ni sebenarnye from Dr Mail's room. Salleh kemaskan bilik abang dia pastu tatau nak buh kat mane so dia and abg Fadzil came with this 'bright' idea to put it in my cube since its the supposedly the counselling cube.. ceh! Last², jadi tmpt Ayu letak bag je hehe..

Heheh.. make habis la tag ku ini. And as tags go, I'd like to tag:

1. Adi, Ana and Mael (Depe ni kene buh name sekali.. tapi tag lain² naaa, tak aci sekali!)
2. Sentot (..and her new workplace!)
3. Ayeen.. nak tengok Inteliers nye workstation camne
4. Jida.. yours too!
5. Pojie jugak
6. Dr Dzul the dentist with the desk I've never seen
7. Dr Ina.. errkk, dia ni dok cuti lame, tatau ade workstation ke tak
8. Kak Zarina.. jauh tuuu
9. Lie.. pun jauh jugak
10. Sape lagi yang bace.. but please tell me, nak bace and tengok nanti hehe..

Teruk la Ayu ni. like a roller coaster je rase arini. Just this afternoon rase sangat happy with my students (both my class and the class I took over this week), then tetibe ade rase sedey..

Just cam back from meeting my friends.. thus the picture above AGAIN! Hahah..

The meeting was just between me, my two best 'cousins' Toroque and Yokies, and another friend Mat Nizam, all who are in the photo above.

Kenape ye Ayu rase lain?

I dunno. Sebenarnye ngan Mat Nizam tak le heran sgt coz I'm not that close to him. But with my two 'cousins', tetibe tadi bleh jadi tatau nak cakap ape. Once upon a time dulu, we talked sampai takde topic nak bercakap. Ngan Toroque lagi la, especially the time I was so sad about IM, he'd listen to me talk on and on about IM sampai 4-5 pagi. Yokies (and kak Maria, his wife) pun same, kept calling me mase tu to make sure I'm okay, kept trying to make me laugh..

Tapi tadi, I didn't know what to talk about with them. They talked about anak² la, family la, beli rumah la, kereta la.. and I didn't know how to butt in. Senyum je la.. Its not that I don't like it, in fact I laughed at Toroque when he scolded Yokies for 'bawak anak keluar malam²'. Sebenarnye, it makes me feel all fuzzy and warm inside to see how good fathers they have become, though to me its still a bit comical when I remember how they were during our undergraduate years.. its just that I suddenly feel 'so outta league'.

Suddenly the content feeling I had earlier had disappeared when I had this feeling of.. I dunno.. being 'inadequate' (aci ke gune perkataan tu?). Even Mat Nizam who's to get married in December pun dah beli rumah.. and though I laughed when Yokies said, "Ayu dah tertekan dengaq Mat Nizam pun dah nak kawen..", deep inside, I suddenly wondered, where am I heading to?

Friends my age dah ade anak 3 (Read: Budak 2 org tu la..).. dah beli rumah sendiri, in fact Jida is among the first and from what I heard (Sowi Jida, saya takat remember what you told me je, pegi rumah awak pun belum kan padehal dah janji bertahun heheh..) her house is not even the 'bujang' type of house. Complete ngan renovations and fully furnished. Own their own cars (while I'm still paying off my car to Abah). Gaji pun dah tak main takat 4-5 ribu.. and from what I can see: doing things they enjoy (as opposed to Ayu yang tak enjoy studying lagi!)

What went wrong ah?

I know, I guess I sound ungrateful + tak bersyukur.. Astaghfirullahaladzim, I really do.. insaf Ayu.. insaf..

Another Kodak moment :)

Uhh.. 2 entry berturut² pasal student hahah.. but actually, these are the things that make me smile these few days. And sesape yang tanye, why my YM status asyik, "Rase bes la plak..", its because of these kids.

During the year, I have my own class. I teach 2 classes for form 1, 1 class for form 2 and another class for form 3. But sometimes, I'd be asked to substitute other teachers who couldn't make it to their classes.

Anyway, after my previous class, while making my way to the clerks to hand in my attendance, I notice a 'commotion'. Turned out, some students who had just finished their science (rase nye laaa..) SPM paper had come to the tuition centre to meet Cikgu Thiru who had been teaching them science for the whole year. They were happily telling him that they could answer all questions and all that and I smiled while looking at Cikgu Thiru who is sure happy to have students coming to thank him (I know the feeling *smiles*). It was a whole group of boys so I just smiled at Cikgu Thiru then went on my way. Then..

"Cikgu.. cikgu.."

..dan Ayu masih berjalan.

"Cikgu Ayu!!"

Huh?!?! I turned to the group of boys and it was then that I realized they looked kinda familiar. Then they came to me and thanked me for teaching them and all that.. but all the while I was confused. I mean, I might forget the names of my students but I usually don't forget their faces. But I just couldn't remember where I had met these boys.

It was then that one of them said to me: "Cikgu tak ingat kat kitorang eh? Cikgu penah ganti kelas kitorang satu hari dulu.. cikgu ingat tak?"

Only THEN did I remember them.. but I was suprised they remembered me as I only taught them ONCE! And I'm sure I was a bit cranky at the time hahah.. Then one of them reminded me about something I had told them..

You see, they were in form 5, but they took a form 4 class. Some of the girls in the class were being a bit cruel about that fact and I saw how their faces had changed at the girl's remark. Looking at their crestfallen faces, I had told the class, I admire that group of boys because they had the courage to take this class even though they were being laughed at. I admired that group of boys because they wanted to excel and they were clearly striving for it. I admired those boys because I myself am not that brave to admit 'I don't know'.

God! That 'speech' lasted only for a minute.. but THEY REMEMBERED! And to think that sometimes I think that whatever I say, masuk tinge kanan, kluar tinge kiri..

And yes, once again I left my class smiling.. :)

Ni yang seronok jadi cikgu ni.. :)

Some people call it, sweet.. Some people call it adorable.. Others prefer the Mastercard touch by simply calling it: Priceless

..and it sure fed the ego of the teacher in me! :)

The class wasn't my class. I was just asked to substitute the teacher for the week, and it wasn't actually my favourite class as it was a tad too noisy for my taste (Yup, I've taught them before). Halfway through the class, I told them their teacher was coming back to teach them, and while some told me they only then knew I wasn't their teacher, another voice suddenly said out..

"Cikgu.. tak payah la ganti je kelas ni. Cikgu jadi la cikgu kitorang terus sampai habis.. Kalau cikgu jadi cikgu kitorang, mesti kitorang siapkan semua keje cikgu suruh buat.. boleh kan cikgu?"

THIS coming from a boy who usually just tiru the answers from his friend.. or rather, the whole group of them copy the answer from the same friend.

And to prove his point, he answered all my questions by himself.. making sure I KNEW he did it himself :)

Yup.. I agree!

A busy Sunday

It's 7.07pm and I'm still in school hehe..

Sebenarnye cam takde keje kan, padehal bleh je duk umah kemas umah.. tul tak?

Woke up to the usual Sunday cartoons on tv, and as usual, on Sunday mornings, I'm back to being an 8-year-old ngadap cartoon tak abih. Ended my tv marathon (which reminds me, the Penang bridge marathon tu arini ke?) at 12.30pm THEN baru pegi mandi hahah.. so what if I'm a kambing on Sundays, its not like I live with anyone else :p

Around 1pm I finished getting ready and headed off to Jusco. Iyer, ganti balik pegi Jusco time tutup aritu haha.. Bought some chicken, meat, marinated lamb and salmon. Also bought lots of veges (Hmm.. dah la liat makan sayur kan! Habis ke tak la sayur tu nanti) and dried mushrooms (thank God I live alone, klau tak boring sumer org asyik nak makan mushroom tu je).

Dishwashing liquid was also on the list and instead of my usual Sunlight (Iyerr, tau ade org boikot, tapi nak buat camne, thats the only dishwashing liquid that my manja hands tahan.. tried Axion the other day and mak aiii, mengelupas tangan²!) I tried the Jusco brand. Reason: Murah RM2 (Tu pun nak berkire ke Ayu?) and it should be gentle on the hands too. alos bought some snacks and was very tempted to go borong some chocolate but the guilt in me keeps reminding myself on my plan to lose some accumulated weight I gained a few months back *sigh*

Arrived back home around 2.45pm (Iyer, saya pegi sane untuk shopping barang rumah sahaje :p) and trus tukar baju to go to school. Reason being, arini bercadang nak kemas cube.

Actually, had planned to reorganize my cube eversince the incident with the I***ians yang telah mencemarkan cube ku ini with Nescafe but never got to it. Today however, feeling sick of seeing the sign "This is not a coffee shop" in front of my cube, I thought of saving my cards yang telah tercemar itu and to clean up my cube.

These are the cards yang half tercemar and especially after abg Fadzil and Ramadhan made the joke of that guy spitting his Nescafe on the cards (yang harus membuatku geli!), I've had mixed feelings of keeping the cards or throwing them away.. but the sentimental part of me insisted on keeping them (instead of displaying them until my next birthday.. which Ive been doing every year hahah.. esok nak birthday, baru bukak last year's cards to give way to this year's cards hehe..)

Then had a big smile on my face when reading back all the cards before keeping them back in their envelopes and stashing them somewhere safe (I hope!).. little things like this really make you feel loved *sengih like kerang busuk!*

After 'saving' my cards, started on clearing the drawers of this desk and wiping all surfaces I could reach (I'm short, remember!). Then rearranged my whaddyacallit book+file rack and realized there were a lot of odds and ends I don't use hanging around in there. After a few hours, I noticed the black rubbish bag I bought from home was satisfyingly full and that made me smile..

..but wait a minute!

Ni yang tak suke ni. After hours of slaving and feeling as if I've accomplished something, I suddenly realized: TAK BERUBAH PUN RUPE CUBE SAYA NI!!!

With all the rubbish I managed to put in the rubbish bag, I can't say that my cube looked a bit more 'organized' than before.. except for my cardless wall lah.. uhhh, sabo je laaaa..

So this is me, looking at the big, black rubbish bag and wondering why oh why does a whole bag of rubbish not help in changing the look of my cube!

Took some 'before' pictures tapi tak mo letak coz the 'after' pictures takde beze.. sedey tul!

(Wanna Get To Know You) That Good! ~ Sape ye Ayu?!? Heheh..

Actually this morning has been a bit hectic, tau la kan when dealing with 'org² atasan' yang tak reti duk bilik.. and especially when they're not in the same campus as you! Sheesh, sgt nyusahkan!

Anyway, while waiting for the 10-minute-interval-for-trying-to-call-them, I opened this website for downloading songs (Hahaha.. cam takde keje kan?!), intending to find some other songs but then stumbled upon Shania Twain's Up! album.. ok, ade jugak citer lain di sebalik album ni kenape I was excited when I found it but for now I just wanna paste the lyrics of one of my favourite songs in this album (Ade another song but that would be a story for another day la kan.. huhuh, kasik la can nak dwell on the past kejap before I share it hehe..)

I'll be there when you're sleepin'
and every hour you're awake
I wanna hear your secrets
Wanna share your worries
Wanna go the deepest
I don't wanna hurry

I wanna take a lifetime to memorize your face
Wanna hold you closer
Kiss you longer
Wanna hear your heartbeat
Stronger and stronger

Wanna know you all over
Till I know you by heart
Gotta know you with all that I got

I wanna know you that good!
I wanna know you
Gonna reach way down deep in your mind
I wanna get to know you--
Wanna get to know you
Wanna get to know you that good..

..gonna know you right through
You know I want to
So badly it hurts all the time
I wanna get to know you--
Wanna get to know
Wanna get to know you that good
Yeah, I wanna know you that good

Every feel of your fingers
Every curl in your hair
Don't wanna miss a minute
Wanna be right in it
Do everything you're doin'
Go everywhere you're goin'

Wanna know you all over
Till I know you by heart
Gotta know you with all that I got

[Repeat Chorus]

I wanna know you that good

Wanna know your emotions
Wanna taste every tear
Wanna hear you breathin'
Feel what your feelin'
I wanna get to know
Know you that good!

Like no one knows you
Gonna reach way down deep in your mind
I wanna get to know you
Wanna get to know
I wanna get to know you
Wanna get to know
Wanna get to know you

To know you
I wanna know you by heart
I wanna know you that good
