... ceritera train ... no 3....

pd satu pagi... (mcm cerita kanak2 lak)
saya beratur didepan skali eh tak.. saya beratur then sbb train yg datg tu mcm dah penuh, so ketepi lah tunggu train berikutnya... so saya jd depan sekali (bnyk nya so aku)
line lagi satu adalah sorang chinese lady, umur lewat 30-an ke awal 40-an (tak vogue, tak cantik, tak bergaya, berpakaian sederhana saja)...
tak lama lepas tu dtg lah sorang old lady (umur dlm 60-an keatas lah, rambut curly putih semua, sedikit bongkok, berpakaian sederhana saja) berdiri ditgh2 diantara kami berdua, kira tak berbaris lah...
personally, i tak kisah sbb she is an old lady, she needs the privilege sama lah mcm pregnant lady, they are allowed to potong queue
akan tetapi, the not-so-young lady boleh membahasakan that old lady suh beratur... dia ckp in mandarin (i guess so) dan mmg lah saya tidak paham brg sebutir tp dr intonasi, body language dia mmg dia tgh marahkan that old lady suh beratur jugak kat belakang...
the old lady keep quiet, buat tak tahu je... but i think…

... hustle and bustle of kuala lumpur ...

saya bekerja di area golden triangle of kuala lumpur.... ofis ku yg setinggi 24 tingkat terasa agak kecil di celah2 pencakar langit yg lain...

sepanjang 2 tahun penetapan di sini, ada beberapa perkara yg menarik perhatian saya....
sekali pandang mcm tak luas sgt, tp tanah itu tetap cukup untuk mendirikan sebuah bangunan yg bertingkat2 lebih dari 10 lah...
car park yg besar (yg kapasiti lebih dr 100 kereta) mesti tak akan bertahan lama lah... mesti *ka-ching* bertukar menjadi bangunan
kuala lumpur tidak penah cukup hotel, buat bangunan baru je, hotel, hotel, hotel
tak percaya?? percayalah..... (sila nyanyi ;) ) tak lama lagi klcc akan dikelilingi dgn hotel; existing: mandarin oriental, traders, maya will be: hyatt, four season
bnyk bangunan baru, apa jd dgn bangunan lama? boleh di 'mekap' tmbh sket kosmetik (cermin , new paint) and voila... dah jadi bangunan baru
taknak mekap? takpe... extend je bangunan sedia ada, kembangkan sisi2 yg boleh berkembang
back lane yg tak digunakan pun diu…

... anecdote 3 ... makan

Scenario A

Aiman: Ibu masak apa malam ni?
Me: Nasi lah.
Aiman: Alah, tak nak lah. Hari2 makan nasi.
(terpaksa lah ibu nye tukar menu dinner)


Scenario B

At a kedai makan, waiter dtg to get the order...
Aiman: Air ribena satu
Erina: Air oren
(waiter jot down the order, we order and he wrote some more then he went away)
Aiman: Eh! Meja ni tak lap.
(fortunately waiter tu tak dgr, aiman sounds a little bit rude and got scolded by hubby)
Aiman: Aiman order ribena, apsal abang tu tulis O mula2...ribena mana ada O
(actually, by the time he finished said his order, the waiter have finished write ribena in short form and starting to write oren)


Scenario C

Going out for lunch with hubby's mom and granny.
Waiter: Okey ini air kopi nye.. (to hubby's granny)
Aiman: Eh apsal onyang (hubby's granny) tak minum nescafo?
Me and hubby: Huh? Nescafo? Apa tu?
Aiman: nescafo lah... onyang selalu minum kat rumah nenek
Then it struck us... Nescaffe 'O' is nescafo :D


Scenario D

I cook for dinner, I set up the ta…

... Ikhlaskah kita??? ...

Sejauh mana kah keikhlasan kita dlm melakukan satu2 perkara? Be it either for our personal life, work or etc.

erkk... ini bukan lah tazkirah sbb saya tidaklah alim sangat... cuma sbg peringatan kepada diri sendiri (terutamanya) dan juga sesapa yg membaca...

i believe in doing everything sincerely, kena ikhlas barulah berkat...
a simple example, memasak utk family. being a working mom, balik keje baru lah kelam kabut nak masak, kekdg sampai rumah dekat kul 7 mlm, anak2 dah kelaparan (budak2 besar 4,5 tahun mana paham suh tunggu or tahan perut). mmg saya seboleh2nya tak nak bagi junk food to my kids especially at night time, takut diorg hyperactive memlm. so mmg nak masak proper dinner cepat2. dah lah saya jenis yg bukan boleh masak time nak masuk dlm kuali time tu baru potong bhn2...mmg kena sediakan semua ingredients dulu pastu lebur dan lebur (=masak). jadi... bila memasak dlm keadaan yg agak huru hara itu, ditmbh dgn anak2 yg bergaduh sesama sendiri, saya akan memasak dlm keadaan emosi…

... ceritera train ... no 2

disbbkan stesen kegemaran saya adalah klcc, dimana ianya juga adalah stesen kegemaran lebih ramai orang terutamanya time cuti sekolah... normal lah kan namanya pun public transport... hehe...

akan tetapi satu benda yg tak suka time ramai2 waktu cuti sekolah ialah pengguna2 yg tidak biasa menggunakan lrt (newbies).... org lain semua dah beratur dgn cantiknya single line tepi pintu, satu line belah kanan satu line belah kiri, dah agak panjang dah line ni (> 2 org), boleh lak newbies ni terjah je buat line lain kat tgh2 area pintu.... takkan lah tak nampak line2 yg cantik tu... takkan lah tak leh berpk kalau diorg duk tgh2 situ camna dgn org yg nak turun... itu pemikiran secara logik shj...

one more thing... cuti sekolah... so ramai2 lah budak2 sekolah yg kuar2... sbb sblm ni takde bersekolah di kl, jd rasa mcm pelik tgk dressing budak2 ni...mmg mcm up to date... tp mostly mcm over, maksud saya mcm over age, tak dressing appropriately for their age... muka mcm 13 or 14 thn je, tp dressi…

ceritera in the train... no 1...

a very serene morning....
many sleepy heads....
then from nowhere, a moving radio.... actually, it is a guy who wearing headphone hearing some loud musics but i who sat more than 2 metres from him can also hear his musics. :D
very very annoying for sleepy head like me who take the morning trip as a place to take a nap.
but, i do wonder, if i was 2 metres away could hear the song clearly, how on earth is his ears taking it? rasa boleh pecah gegendang telinga....
hmmmm...

public transportation

Do you use public transportation? I use it every working days. For some people, it is very difficult since have to 'bersesak-sesak'. Have to wait. Out of their way. And many other reasons that applicable to those who do not want to use it. I am not being judgmental. Just laying out all the possible reasons that I can think of.As for me, I always live nearby public transportation hub or station. If something happen to our own vehicle, public transportation is always there to be as a backup. Despite the irregularities of the arrival schedule, I think is enough as backup plan. I do not drive yet and thats became the main reason for me to use public transportation. Plus the parking fee at my office area is ridiculously expensive. Parking fee for a month could buy me a pair of Primavera shoes :)Another reason is because I find using public transportation is greener. Less carbon foot print. Just another small contribution to save the world. :)
There are always enough "entertainm…

....smbgn kisah "Cycle 2"...



walaupun Aiman dah kebah dr demam, chicken pox nya (atau dlm bahasa aiman "chicken pop" ) dah kering.... akan tetapi disbb kan masih nampak kesan2 yg sungguh tak cantik itu (bak kata alang nye "eee aiman monster"), maka aiman telah kuhantar pulang ke rumah ibunda terchenta...



sblm kena tinggal, kejap2 aiman kata nak ikut balik ke kj, kejap2 dia suh ibu & ayah nye cepat gi balik and tinggalkan dia.... bila kami betul2 nak balik, dia bye2 kejap je pastu terus lari masuk rumah smbg tgk tv, bak kata hubby, mungkin dia tak nak menangis depan kitorg...



but i did cry a little bit, of coz lah kan, sepanjang umur dia dah 5 tahun 5 bulan ni, cuma 1 mlm je dia tdo without me in the same house....for now it will be 4 nights....



i called him at noon, he seemed happy so good :)



aiman with his various expressions, ni tgh posing sorang2Note: walang = bersedih hati, berdukacita

Cartoon Attractions

Image
Last Tuesday I read an article in The Sun titled "Cartoon Attractions". In short the author, Anna Tham, told about the benefits of children watching cartoon. One way to spend quality time with our kids is through watching cartoon together, hence we as parents could point out the moral behind the cartoon's storyline. Some of the cartoons are also educational which I found are very beneficial for pre-school children.
However there are some guidelines on providing this comfort activity to the kids. The children must be supervised during watching the cartoon. The cartoon must not contain any sexual, violence or bad manners. So that said, anime is really out of the equation. Anime should be labelled as 18SX or 18SG. :)
I really believe in the right cartoon as an educational tool. When I was in Standard One, my then English Teacher gave us a lesson by let us watch an episode of Alvin and the Chipmunks. I still remember in that episode, the chipmunks was learning of how to spell …

My Water Moments

Image
An outing in a big group of family or friends will be more memorable if somehow it involves water activities. For the past few months, my family have gone to two waterfalls nearby Klang Valley. The first one was a picnic with my officemate at Sg. Chongkak.The kids really enjoy themselves with the perfect spot of the river, a lot of friends and delicious meals.Splashing water is a great activity to make new friends. But with Sony TX5 special features of BIONZ imaging process and high sensitivity of "Exmor R" CMOS sensor, I guess the picture above could capture the water droplet more clearly and also the happy expression of the kids.
Aiman at his utmost playfulness mood. This shot could be more creative taken with half shot underwater with water proof Sony TX5. My hubby latest craze of his nature shot - waterfall. Sony TX5 ability to capture a single optimized image by superimposing six visual frames could produce a more dramatic and natural image of this small waterfall.
Then a …

Cycle 2

Penat lelah dari Cycle 1 belum betul2 habis lagi... then on last Thursday evening, Aiman slept early, by 9 dia dah lelap. But then on 10++ dia dah bangun gi toilet tapi lepas tu dah tak leh lelap. So I try to pujuk dia tdo balik tapi rasa badan dia teramat lah panas. Panic jap. Then buka baju dia nampak lah pulak.....chicken pox.
There goes the start of Cycle 2 of interrupted beauty sleep. :|
Anyway, hubby is taking the day off this Monday to tend to Aiman. Woohooo selamat cuti aku... hehe...
So tak tau lah lagi bila the end of this Cycle 2.

Chicken pox "Chickenpox or chicken pox is a highly contagious illness caused by primary infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV).[1] It usually starts with vesicular skin rash mainly on the body and head rather than at the periphery and become itchy, raw pockmarks, which mostly heal without scarring. Chicken pox is spread easily through coughs or sneezes of ill individuals or through direct contact with secretions from the rash. Following primary infection there is usually lifelong protective immunity from further episodes of chickenpox.Chickenpox is rarely fatal, although it is generally more severe in adult males than in adult females or children. Pregnant women and those with a suppressed immune system are at highest risk of serious complications. Chicken pox is now believed to be the cause of one third of stroke cases in children.[2] The most common late complication of chicken pox is shingles, caused by reactivation of the varicella zoster virus decades after the initial e…

anecdote2

Aiman baru belajar or should I say hafal (hmm... ) surah al-fatihah. It sounds okay for a 5-year old boy. Then yesterday, he recited surah al-ikhlas according to his way"qul hu allah hu ahad allah hu samad yam yam yam yam yalid yulad" by then both me and hubby have been trying very hard not to laugh for the 'yam yam' part.
:) but we feel very proud of him to be able to recite those surahs.
and he recited it again during jamaah with hubby during solat maghrib :) hehe
