Impulsive buying/purchase.

I have this bad habit of buying something I don't really need, and it's unplanned. Whenever I stroll at the mall, I will remind myself not to buy something unnecessary, but normally when stress strikes, I forget what I have remind myself earlier.

Was looking to get a new toilet doors yesterday, as to replace the old ones. Reput dan dah terkopak. Went to this one kedai with Perempuan Cantik, and we agreed to get this 3 pintu at affordable price when I suddenly gatal tanya amoi kedai tu "you ada jual gate sekali ka?"

So instead of only getting new doors for the toilets, I ended up terbeli pintu pagar sekali.

I don't mind to pay (hutang credit card, you bet), but that face of Perempuan Cantik at that time when I asked "nak ke?" is ultimately priceless. Happy mom is happy.

And yes, I believe that impulsive buying happened when once again pang of distress strikes, and shopping is always a good therapy, no?

Before we left the kedai, I told mom "doakan dapat kerja kat company T".

Tips menghilangkan sedu (hiccup).

Betul ka hiccup is "sedu" in bahasa melayu? Anyway, kalau anda ada masalah sedu, ini ada tips ringkas yang teramat berkesan. Adalah diingatkan tips ini tidak sesuai untuk bayi (unless depa faham instruction, then ok je).

Apa yang perlu anda buat?
1- Bongkokkan badan seolah sedang ruku'.
2- tarik nafas dalam dalam. 
3- Lepas nafas perlahan lahan.

And tadaaa, in split second hiccup tersebut hilang. Allahuakhbar!!

Selamat mencuba. Good night!

soalan temuduga kerja.

I remember during the interview my boss asked "awak boleh ke kerja dengan melayu, you know kat sini i'd say 99% are malay?

I replied rather desperately "I know I can".

Only after almost a year, I realized I cannot (or still adapting, idk).

idk.

Mulut macibai.

I had this conversation with someone whom I have so much respect, given that she's older than me. But party pooper (ala-ala Wardina Saffiyah) ni really gonna kill the "excitement" bila bercakap dengan depa. Ada je benda yang irritating dia akan cakap.

Bagus lah dah berhijrah. But you really think "biar mulut jahat, asalkan hati baik" really applicable these days?

Bukankah apa yang kita cakap, semuanya datang dari hati?

So which part of "hati baik" you claimed if mulut macaibai?

Selamat Tahun Baru 2015.

Aku rasa there's a fine line yang membezakan merajuk, kecik hati and annoyed. 

Aku sangat annoyed dengan insan yang suka melaga-lagakan orang lain. Bila dah cuba menjauhkan diri, dikatanya kita merajuk. Kecik hati ada lah sikit, tapi takdelah sampai merajuk.

Pondan saja merajuk, and I think kecik hati sinonim dengan marah yang tak di-express. Kan?

Selamat tahun baru semua. A year older, and hopefully a million years wiser lah.
