End of first trimester

Surely, ibu never knew meeting a gynea is far more interesting than meeting your papa when he was Ibu's boyfriend :p Even though sometimes ibu felt worried about my health but truly the gynea will always present an exciting news for Ibu to listen.

Actually our appointment is schedule at 1.30pm but we came earlier - about 11am. As the receptionist already recognized Ibu, so it is easier to register. Usually we will talk about your grandma and Ibu's work. FYI, my mum has given birth 5 out of 7 of my siblings at Sambhi Clinic.

Yesterday, Ibu slept at 4 am just because Ibu could not resist watching Fear Factor with your Papa. Papa was begging Ibu to sleep earlier but your stubborn Ibu ignored his words. And to that effect, once Ibu jumped into the car, Ibu already flies to Pluto. Ehee

As usual, each visit to Sambhi Clinic, Ibu has been instructed to do the urine test and weighing my weight but surprisingly Ibu did not put on weight at all. Weird. Of course I do. Imagine, Ibu could not zip my jeans, no more wearing suits to the office and sometimes Ibu eats like nobody business. Pelik kan sayang.

Scanning. The most historic part about pregnancy. If only they allow Ibu to watch you for 24 hours, I will do. Once the doctor put the gadget on my tummy, I could see you straight away. Wow, there is no more little bean inside my womb but it already turns into - how should I say - nice body / features. The doctor explained from this time around, you will be measured by your head and now you are 2.7 cm and your full length is approximately 6.8 cm. And, the doctor shows Ibu your cute leg, hands and head. Besides, more and more of your organs are functioning every day.

Baby, when the doctor was explaining about you to us, suddenly you have given a surprise gesture. You raised your hand as if you want to say hi to us and it does make us burst into laughter. Are you trying to say something? The doctor printed your picture while you were sucking your finger(s). And I just got to know that three months little baby has the ability to suck you own finger(s).

Alhamdulillah, your heart beating well. But ibu did asked the doctor about my hands and fingers. Usually, when Ibu is having a shower, it is normal for Ibu to start shivering but lately it is not only shivering but Ibu hands and fingers turns into blue in color. Bruise. Scary right. But when the doctor checked, alhamdulillah everything is ok. And from Ibu's reading material, maybe it because of Ibu's blood demands has increased to 30% and Ibu could not supply enough blood to support the demands. Hmm I will deal with that. Ibu understand as you are really beginning to show, you give Ibu the stretch marks and as a result Ibu will start scratching here and there and your papa will hold my hands to stop me.

Ibu has been advised by the doctor to drink a lot of plain water which Ibu already predict that she will be going to say that to Ibu. This past few week, ibu admit that Ibu did not eat a proper meals since Ibu was so exhausted after a long day at work, but luckily Ibu has your papa to make sure that Ibu drinks two glasses of milk, soybeans, all the vitamins for us and etc every day. We are lucky because we have a man who really cares about us especially you. Every movement, your papa will remind Ibu "baik-baik sikit, baby kite dalam tu".

And this is the end of our first trimester. Ibu should thank you for not giving much problem during this period. No morning sickness. Sometimes, ibu did not realize that ibu is carrying you because of my daily routine lifestyles. But ibu promise to give the best that I can for you to have a comfy space inside my womb. But honestly, I am afraid what will happen to us during Ibu's peak period March & April. What can only Ibu says, Allah is beside us.

You are the best hubby in the world

Whoa, that is seriously a relief after a week of hard work. This whole week, I am on my first annual leave but only today mark a full rest day of my beautiful leave. I still came to the office but still, I have not yet completed all the assignments given. Yeah, when I talk about work, there is no sign of full stop. Last week not only was a good practice for me to cope up with the compliance season but also the best time for my hubby to understand the nature of my work.

Went back at 11 pm, and came to the office as usual the next morning was totally something that basically I have to avoid especially during my pregnancy period. But, for me it is complicated to explain. But as I told my husband, I love the pressure and I am coming to a place whereby I love this job. Sound crazy huh? Honestly, being on pressure sometimes it is a positive thing. It really keeps me focused on task, and at the same time, I have the opportunity to learn.

Sometimes, I continue asking myself whether I am on the right path? Doing the right thing? What I put myself into? And so on.. But I guess, I have gone through one stage where I let myself go with the time. I do keep my options open but the result is always - "you have to be here, doing tax".

Anyway, on top of that, a big hugs and kisses for my hubby for his support even though at once he complained. Hai, laki mane tak complain kan bile bini die keje sampai ke malam. But he is my real hero, friends, husband and boyfriend. He will wait for me until I finish my work, call me every now and then to ensure that I am ok and etc. Yesterday, he was beside me until 3 am in the office!! Thanks dear.

Tomorrow is my appointment with my gynea, Cant wait to meet my baby!!

UTP ku sayang - Masjid terapung UTP

Even though UTP is located in the isolate area, honestly I am proud to become one of the Utpian. Being rewarded as a Petronas scholar, it is the best gift to compensate the fact that i dint get the opportunity to study abroad. Well, Petronas as a multinational company with business interests around the world, is not only concern on making money, but their responsibility as the corporate citizen has created a smile to other people.

And i get those smiles. I am proud to witness the development of the most beuatiful university in Malaysia - I guess - Seriously, the design is awesome, ask anyone whom has visited the new UTP campus, I bet they are surprised to see that Tronoh is the host of this beuatiful architecture. The Chancellor building, schools, hostels, etc.. Opss, not to forget - the hottest place in Malaysia. I tell u, pokok tak hidup :D.

And Masjid Terapung is the latest building which is now the talk of the town. Yeah - floating mosque hmm.. Last time, I was only able to see the structure and now, this mosque is ready to be used by everyone. Nothing I can comment since Ive never been entering the mosque yet.

And BRAVO to Petronas..

Do you know that?

I was playing around with Dearie, yeah we love to kacau each other. So, one day, I put my head on his tummy, pretending that I was listening his baby heartbeat. As I was probing on his tummy, he snoared (intentionally), and once I settled at one spot, I could listen clearly a sound which I did not sure where it came from.

I told my husband and listened again to the sound, but Dearie continuing making that noise and ignoring my question. Frustrated, I turned around to show my objection, and as usual, Dearie would quickly gave me a hug.

And he said "Sebab tu la, orang mengandung ni, die kene selalu baca Quran, sebab ape yang kite cakap, baby boleh dengar. Tak boleh nak marah-marah, kene selalu cakap dengan baby, sebab suara tu bile kite cakap mengalir sampai kat perut"

And that night, I learnt something useful to myself. A reason behind it.

Second time

Yeah, definitely im back after a few weeks away from blogging and not even has the opportunity to view other bloggers. November was the hectic month for me and it is getting worst in December. Okey, talking about work is endless point to debate on, all I need to do is - counting my year end annual leave and preparing myself for the ten days full rest with my dearest hubby. Even though we have no plan for vacation, err actually Dearie did suggested some places but I dont feel like going anywhere.

Maybe it was an outdated news for you, but FYI I took another MC the end of last month. Only a day but it was awful. My sister in law met an accident at Sungai Buluh, and inside the car was her 10 years old daughter. I wont describe how was it happened but alhamdulillah both mother and daughter are in the stable condition. I rushed to the Sungai Buloh Hospital as I received the news with Dearie, as soon as I reached there, I volunteered myself to accompany my sister in law to the ladies. No toilet inside the small building.

But unfortunately, I fell down. Yeah, the floor was slippery. It was not painful at all. But.. late at night, hanya tuhan yang tahu betapa sakitnya perutku ini. I cried not because it was painful but I was afraid for my baby condition. But, seriously, it was subhanallah. Sakit ya amat. I never experienced that painful before. But alhamdulillah, after a few hours fighting for the painful, im ok.

Only the next day, I went to see my gynea. And hehe, I managed to see my baby for the second time. That was a really a good compensation after panicking moment. According to the doctor, there was nothing I could worry since both of us were doing fine. Hah, once I heard the news, all the negative perception run off from my head.

The doctor gave an option whether I wanted to scan or not since he was surely confident that the baby is "laughing" in my womb. Since it was an option, of cos I wont let myself missed this second chance. So, lets scan.

The same process again. I laid down on the bed, the doctor put some lotion and jeng jeng jeng. I was surprised to see the small little bean last 2 weeks has grown up to 4cm. Last time my baby was only 1cm. And amazingly, once the doctor placed that gadget on my tummy, I could easily recognize my baby on the screen. Note: Last time took about few minutes before the doctor showed my baby.

My little baby was "jumping" and "jumping" around its yolk. FYI, this yolk supplies food for the baby before it has its own "tali pusat". Haha, what we call tali pusat in English. Nyeh nyeh. My baby was actively running inside this comfy space as if he/she was playing football. Both of us laughed to share this sweet moment with our doctor and nurse. The doctor said "see, your baby is doing great!!"

We enjoyed our time watching our little baby playing inside my tummy, yeah, I hardly couldn't describe other word besides "play" and "jump". Even the doctor complained that it was difficult to capture the picture of my baby besides its yolk since this baby tak reti duduk diam. Anyway, I will upload the picture tomorrow - if only he remembers to upload it. (I asked for his help). But unfortunately, the picture was not as we requested. (without yolk). But, looking back on my baby's progress, best sangat!! Tak dapat gambar pun tak pe, janji die sihat. Kan baby??

After 3 months

Today, I was having a serious discussion with my colleague pertaining our future. And both of us are in the same line in understanding our working culture. We ended our conversation with two unsolved questions - are we in the right path?

On the other hand, i felt uneasy during the office hour. Considering to take MC for the rest of the day, I doubt to do so as more assignments coming in. Dunno how to describe but it is more or likely as having a stomachache - indigestion. It was painful at once but it slowly disappeared after a few minutes, but the sad thing, it attacked me again and again.

But when i told my baby "Ape baby buat ni, ibu sakit lah" (lebih kurang la ayat die) Im telling you... suddenly it stopped!! How beautiful the relationship between mother and child even though it may coincidently happened.

Good sign to show he/she is obedient.. hehe.. InsyaAllah

Whoaa, for the first time ever when I know the world of blogging, my counter was such a big hit last two days. Ok, maybe it is not a hit to other bloggers but for me, its awesome. Yeah, my baby posting beat my entry on my wedding day. My statcounter shows the statistic of 312 hits this webpage last Wednesday, (but its including the returning visitors :).

I wonder the person who typed my name in Google. Hehe.. Siapakah anda?

Anyway, thank you.

Bile makan depan orang puasa

Dearie is still on his Puasa Enam but I.. having my breakfast in front of him even asked him to accompany me to Cikgu Rohaya's stall at Jalan J. There, I had my Nasi Lemak and Teh O suam

For my lunch, I just bought two Dunkin Donuts as I already ate heavy breakfast.

After office hour, we went to Giant Melawati but I was too starving to walk. Yeah, today was quite a hectic day for a pregnant woman like me. Went to IRB Wangsa Maju, then back to office - today I don't have enough time to breathe as one of my manager is going on annual leave starting tomorrow. So, most of the assignment due today, and later in the evening, I rushed to IRB Jalan Duta to settle a case.

That was the reason I looked pale and HUNGRY. Dearie had to see his wife eating Cheeseburger as if I don't have any other business to worry. Hehe. Dah isi minyak, then we shopped, but after that I forced dearie to go to Pasar Malam. So here is the story.

For dinner

- I eat for almost one hour. Yes ladies and gents, one hour...
Rice, Prawns, Fish, Sate (3 cucuk je), Roti John, Mango, Soybean, Keropok, Milk..

and the result...

I vomitted for the first time. Penat je makan. Dearie laughed. He was kinda so happy to watch me learnt a lesson.

Conclusion : Jangan makan ikut nafsu..
Jangan makan depan orang puasa

When the First time i saw you

It was a lovely Saturday morning when Ibu woke up just as the sun was rising. It was the day that Ibu has counted since the day one I know you are inside my womb. Ibu was excited to meet the gynea as I may see you for the first time.

Baby. That day, Ibu skipped breakfast and I am pretty sure that was the first time you learn to fast. Sorry dear, Ibu thought Ibu has to fast in order to do the scanning, but Ibu was wrong. First time lah dear.

I guess you already know that "eating" is already become Ibu's middle name. Since you are in, foods always inside my bag as to make sure that both of us are well-supplied with food. Papa always mentioned that Ibu loves to use you for some reason but as a matter of fact, Ibu enjoys eating with you and never in my mind Ibu worries about putting on weight. If Ibu didn't keep my stomach full at all times, Ibu became queasy. But, you don't have to worry because Ibu knows what should be on our diet. Do you love all the multivitamins? Fruits? Milks? Chicken? Especially milk and vegetables, well, to tell you the truth dear, Ibu hates milk and always avoid to choose vege as my lauk, but for our benefits, I forced myself to eat it so that you will have enough calcium and vitamins.

But baby, you make me craving for McD's nugget and you should thanks all of your aunties and uncles (Ibu's friends) for brought the nuggets when they visited Ibu. Not only nuggets, Ibu is craving for Pisang Goreng at Jalan J and only yesterday Ibu's managed to grabbed all the pisang goreng. Coincidently, the seller was Auntie Ainaa's friend and your auntie purposely told her friend that Ibu was craving for that pisang. Haiyaa.

Back to the Saturday's morning story, 30 minutes driving to Sambhi Clinic was filled with all the stories inside Ibu's head. Yeah, everyone keeps telling their own version of bleeding which sending me into complete panic, but of course Ibu will always pray the best for you.

When Ibu's entered the scanning room, Ibu has been asked by the nurse to lie down on the bed. Papa gave a big smile to Ibu. When the doctor touched Ibu's tummy with his gadget, Ibu's eyes just glued on the screen, waiting for some words from the doctor. The doctor took a few minutes before showing YOU. Yes, its you. Ibu could see the little "bean" that was growing inside Ibu and its beating heart. Papa took a closer looked to see you and honestly subhanallah. Ibu kept telling the doctor it was amazing and unbelievable. It is miracle when someone is living inside your body.

If only Ibu could swim in my own womb, I will hug you and give you a very first kiss but as stated on paper, it could only be done on 5th July 2006. When the doctor gave the consultation, Ibu realized that Ibu was the only person listening to the doctor while Papa was busy watching you on the screen. Alhamdulillah, the doctor explained that you are fine in my tummy.

Out from the room, Papa gave a kiss on Ibu's forehead, I guess he was so happy to watch his 1cm baby and Ibu remembered when he whispered "Kite taknak bagi die nangis lagi". Yeah, Ibu easily cried even for a small thing. :) Baby, do you know, Papa is kissing you everyday?

Back to Kemensah, I spread your pictures to your aunties and uncles and your Atok. Your Atok (Im not sure what you should call Ibu's father) gave a really big smile when he looked at you. Your Mummy (Ibu's Mama) just has a chance to see you just now as she was in Ipoh during the weekend. Yes, everyone is happy to have you and I am sure when you come to the world, you will shower with all loves from us.

I love you, I love you, I love you.

Oklah, duduk diam-diam dalam perut ibu. Jangan bagi ibu morning sickness. Mari kite same-same break record takde morning sickness, so bile takde kite boleh makan banyak-banyak. Tapi tak mo la nugget lagi, Ibu dah tak leh tengok nugget dah. Pisang ibu boleh terime lagi. Hehe, tau tak pe..


p/s Congratulations to Kak Loly on your 9th week and Kak Wan for your 8th baby. Same-samelah kite beratur kat hospital nanti. 7,8,9 - good combination :p

All for my dearly family

Hai peeps, 27 October was the last posting. Well, a lot of things happened up to this date. Sampaikan nak wish Selamat Hari Raya pun tak sempat. Dah siap plan dah, nak upload gambar mase raye, almaklum first time raye ngan hubby, nak gak share ngan orang lain. Tapi ye laa ape leh buat kite ni merancang Tuhan yang menentukan.

Anyway, tak terlambat kalau Mira n Em wish Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri Maaf Zahir Batin kepada seluruh umat Islam di dunia. Maaf kad raya tahun ni pun tak sempat nak jenguk. setakat kasik email dengan hantar SMS je.

Sekarang ni Mira MC, kalau masuk hari ni kire dah seminggu lebih MC kalau masuk cuti raya kire dah setengah bulan laa mira tak datang opis. Tak tau laa ape perception derang tetambah pulak mira ni still under probation. But what ever it is, i am ready. Ready for anything. All for my dearly baby.

Nak dipendekkan cerite, mira ade bleeding sikit, maybe sebab terlasak sikit mase nak dekat raye, tambah lak travel KL-Melaka-KL-Gerik-KL. Jauh kan. Paling best on the way back from Gerik to KL, our car brokedown at Tanjung Malim, bukan dekat highway, tapi dekat jalan lame. Kononnye nak elak jam kat highway, rupenye mase tu lagi teruk jam dekat jalan lame. Pulak tu dah malam and parahnyer kerete berhenti dekat tengah-tengah alam where there is no houses nearby, hutan belantara je.

Yes, i cried. That time, i was too afraid because anything oould happen. Ade satu insiden yang buat Mira bersyukur teramat, mase tu hubby suruh Mira betulkan parking kereta sebab kereta tetibe stop dekat tempat yang agak bahaya, kire antara border atas jalan dengan kat tepi tu. So, hubby tolak kerete, mira kire pusing stereng kete. Hubby suruh mira pusing kire, so Mira dengan jujurnyer pusing kiri sampai.... nearly kereta masuk dalam gaung. (sebelah tu gaung)

Mase kerete nak approach gaung, Mira dah menjerit2 dalam kete, tak terpikir pun rasenyer nak belok kanan. Tapi hubby tak berape dengar, i make a mistake sebab satu tingkap pun tak bukak. So hubby panik and mira lagi laa panik, and alhamdulillah Tuhan nak panjangkan umur mira, kereta stop exactly before ke gaung without tarik any handbrake (tak terfikir pun nak tarik handbrake). Mase tu Tuhan je tau macam mane perasan kiterang mase tu. We both hugged each other sampai tak terkata ape-ape.

And mase tu la buat pertama kalinyer Mira call 999 asking for help. Alhamdulillah settle semuanya tapi poket kiterang boleh tahan, mane tak nyer kene tukar gearbox. Tapi betul kate polis tu, nasib baik libatkan kete je. Nasib baik sebab Ani ngan adik beradik die on the way balik KL, so kire suruh derang stop dekat Tanjung Malim jap. Kesian derang sebab tambah kiterang 2, maunyer berhimpit sorang sikit. At last, sampai jugak rumah auntie kat PJ kul 12am lepas bertolak dari Kl pukul 12pm. Alhamdulillah..

The next day mira pi opis macam biase, settlekan ape2 keje sebelum amik MC, ye laa mase tu pun mira dah nak demam-demam dah. So bile pi jumpe doktor, bising doktor sebab mira kate mira pi jugak opis hari tu bile mira mention mira ade bleeding, langsung die bagi injection and kene stay on bed 2 minggu. Kire hari ni, baru 3 hari mira tengok dunia luar selain dari bilik ngan toilet. Baru leh jalan-jalan around the house.

Gile bosan, mane tak nyer, dengan tak tengok tvnyer, dengan adik-adik (mira duk kemensah) semua tak de kat rumah, pergh gile boring.. Sebab tu mira force setiap hari ade orang datang visit Mira. Nak gerak sikit, mama dah bising, yerp mira memang totally 100% on bed for a week +. makan pun atas katil. Nasib baik ade kawan2 datang jenguk, ade jugak orang nak ajak borak. Paling best, majoriti yang datang bawak chicken Mc nugget McD punyer. Ohh, im craving for nugget McD, nugget lain nak telan tak leh :P Lagi satu goreng pisang, tapi tak reti nak describe goreng pisang cam mane mira nak tu. Goreng pisang tu jual kat Jalan J, tapi sampai sekarang tak bukak2 kedai tu lagi. :( Sbb bile hubby beli - it is not that i want. heheh. So, tak tau laa how my body lepas ni. Hubby dah gelak2 dah, everyday kene cubit pipi "tembamnyer bini aku". Kalau 40 kali die cakap cam tu.. mak aii..

Macam mane pun, lepas dah duduk diam-diam seminggu ni, banyak mira fikir, banyak mira nak buat decision. Again, it is all for my dearly baby. Hmm ok laa, banyak lak celoteh, anyway, thanks for all the wishes. I will be back to office this coming Thursday - maknenyer hari lasak akan tiba semulaa.. aduhh.. (aduh saliha).. :p ok bye..

I bet, Ramadhan has a different meaning for different people. Some may see Ramadhan as a perfect way to understand the needs of the needy and poorer people where as some people may define it as the best month to lose weight.

For me, this Ramadhan is very priceless and valuable. It is all first time and first memory ever in my life. Becoming a wife, I have to let myself thinking about my husband situation and as Mama's daughter, I missed the time when I just sit on the chair only waiting for the food! And not to forget, this may be the first time I will celebrate Raya without the presence of my family.

Apart from above, there is something makes me so hyper and over excited. Well, a few days back, I was not feeling well and uncomfortable. At first I thought it was a sign of "stressful" syndrome. Yeah, lately I have loads of work even I have to carry the "lovely" assignment at home. But since I missed my period, I tend to be extra careful of my steps.

I found myself feeling fatigued and tired and the worst part, I can easily feel drowsy no matter how long I had my rest. Plus, I make extra few trips to the toilet but all these symptoms to be honest are what I am waiting for. But, a few months back, I experienced the same scenario, then I went to see the doctor but I was disappointed when the UPT test showed it was negative.

So this time around, im not keeping too much hope, even hubby was afraid to let me to do the test. Afraid that I will burst into tears again. But of cos I couldn't wait any much longer. I forced hubby to drive me to Watson and I bought the pregnancy kit test. I tried and ITS POSITIVE. I shouted and guess what, my hubby did not trust the first test, so he went to the Watson again and bought the new kit and again ITS POSITIVE.

And today, I went to see the doctor and ITS POSITIVE but still too early to speak about it. Even I have to recheck again for confirmation. But this good news, will be the best Ramadhan ever in my life. Hehe.. Yeah, im 3-4 weeks pregnant!! Alhamdulillah.

p/s My family is sooooooo happy!! And word cant describe how happy I am

Alfatihah..

Tak boleh tido

Today is the first time i went to The Curve, a brand new shopping mall in the heart of Mutiara Damansara (next to Ikano). Actually, my hubby insisted to go to Pet Safari at Ikano. Oh, FYI, Dearie is in the middle of his craziness for FISH. Aquatic fish. He may go anywhere if anyone suggested it is a better place for FISH. Hehe. And conclusion, kasihku terbahagi dua. :p

Anyway,it is interesting to see the marine's life. Marine 88 in Subang for me is the best place in town to hunt for fish especially for the beginner. But if you want to safe cost, Jalan Pasar is much much more cheaper compared to other places provided that you buy the fish from the "illegal" trader. nyeh nyeh..

Just now, we break our fast at Vivo, at first I was nagging to bukak puasa at Ikea but then when i saw the Vivo's concept and the design, I changed my mind :p. I had my salmon with cream sauce pasta (with rice) while hubby had his black pepper chicken also with nasik (forgot the name) and to end our session, American cheesecake was awesome. Yeah, i know i know.. Ape nak buat, dah gemuk dah pun. :p. Btw, Vivo has a different ordering system which involves writing down your table number, then your orders according to the numbers on the menu and presenting them at the counter. Good idea - can reduce your resources.

Eversince the fasting month started, i guess my expenses for food was tremendously increased. The good reason for this, im lazy to cook after work. Btw, yesterday while we were having our supper at one of mamak's stall in Taman Desa, we saw AF3 ex students (the Sabahan), well enough said, Taman Desa ni dah jadik tempat perkumpulan budak-budak AF nampaknye. Ramai jugak derang dok area-area ni.

To tell you the truth, i couldnt sleep. Pusing kiri, pusing kanan, tak boleh jugak, sebabnye after i went back from Ikano, I terus tido tarak ingat punye, and now hmm kenelaa layan diri sbb Dearie dah pi planet pluto kot sekarang..

Okeh, time to prepare for sahur.. Tadaa..

Our tradition

Hari Raya is a joyous occasion for Muslims, as it signifies a personal triumph, a victory of self-restraint and abstinence, symbolising purification and renewal. In Malaysia especially in the big city it is common to see open houses throughout the month even though Hari Raya is celebrated on a grander scale for the first three days as urbanites make their annual pilgrimage to their hometowns to be with our family, relatives and friends.

The tradition continues from years to years and the beauty of Syawal is where it is time to forgive and forget. Visiting our relatives is a must especially to those newly weds as it is the best way to introduce our spouse to our family. But, I was called to type this down after listening to the conversation between my two colleagues where both of them are married with kids.

They were busy talking about the preparation for Hari Raya and it is natural for the woman to spend more than it takes for Hari Raya mainly for the children. Ok, it is not interesting, but what makes me so enchanted as a "silent partner" in the conversation when one of my colleague recall Hari Raya as the best way to go for the vacation as it can avoid her family to pay for a visit and to stay away from relatives to come over to her house. And this tradition continues for her family.

Well, does our modern society will slowly kill our tradition? When this behavior pass from mother to daughter, our generation will tend to generate an individualistic people that will be more concerned with individual rights rather than the good of the community. We are afraid that one day it is Ok to listen that an uncle does not recognize his niece/nephew or it is more comfortable to hang out with our friends rather than our cousins.

I did not deny that friends are also important but the priority to understand the important of relationship should be a must for each of us. At least keep a good contact with our close relatives as they may be our best referral in the future. (Note: we wouldn't know what will happen next)

I came from a family where we really value and appreciate the bond between relatives. I may -refer my mum as a person who really ensure that the hierarchical of our family is well-recorded in her children memory. Even though sometimes we are quite lazy to follow her doing the tawaf (it will consume our energy for the rest of the day!!) but at least the effort to force her children to get to know our relatives is payable. I may not know their houses, but usually I know who and where to find them.

And that is the reason why I was surprised!!

Thats it. I already register for the ACCA but still dont sign any contract yet. Already get clarification from PETT and EY, so the journey has just begun. And guess what, i still could nt get rid of IT because my partner has assigned me for the system development project. So, more work, more work, more work..

Tag?? Layan je

Seven things I plan to do before I die:

1) mintak ampun kat semua orang

Puasa puasa

Halo hello, assalammualaikum, ape kabar? Hows ur puasa? Hows ur ibadah? as wrote in teh's blog. What if is this our last Ramadhan?Me.. not doing well, honestly.. kalau duduk kemensah sonok sikit, rumah depan surau, melangkah je pergi. Anyway, thats not a good reason kan. :)

Puasa mira, alhamdulillah, tahun ni lagi seronok sebab im a WIFE!! bukak puasa, makan sahur dengan hubby, terawikh pergi dengan die. Tapi lagi best, kali ni kene prepare all by myself. Hehe, mama duk gelak-gelak sebab dulu, bangun sahur je, bukak mate, turun bawah, makcik dah sediakan makanan. Kali ni nak taknak kene masak sendiri, kalau tak kebulur la suamiku itu. Nasib baik si Em ni die tak demand bab-bab makan, asal ade cukup.

Tapi weekend je, zoommm kerete balik kemensah, dapat rase makan best sikit n meriah. Ingat bile dah kawin ni nak ngade ngan baba mama dah tak de dah, tapi rupenyer boleh lagi. Baru-baru ni, im really craving for perut lembu (perut lembu english kate ape erk?) Nak carik perut lembu susah sebab kalau pasar biase biase ni mahai sikit. So mira pun "merengek" la kat baba suruh beli perut lembu dekat pasar borong selayang. Ingat die tak layan, tapi esok nyer baba call kate die dah beli kan. yaho!! tapi tak best betul kene kongsi ratah kerabu perut tu ngan ika, paling tak best die yang habiskan. Die pun same naik belasah perut lembu. Note:Craving doesnt mean im pregnant :)

Ramai betul orang suruh mira buat open house. Bulan puase ni susah kot, mira kalau weekend je cabut balik kemensah sebab bukak ngan family lagi best. but dun worry, raya insyaAllah anda dijemput. kalau tak kat rumah mira, gamaknyer kat kemensah laa, tapi macam kat kemensah je sebab ramai boleh tolong. kalau kat sini, sorang-sorang la nampak nyer mira kene masak especially bab-bab potong bawang ni. lemah betul, baru dua tige bijik je mate berair-air. gune petua orang tue pun tak jalan jugak, kalau nak masak rendang, bawang kene banyak :D. kalau ade sape2 yang boleh kupaskan bawang n bagi mira masak, boleh le buat kat sini. (Khas ditujukan kepada Usamah Jamaluddin) kwang kwang kwang.

Keje? Off the record, tak berani lagi nak cerite lebih-lebih lagipun mira bahagian high risk management. Silap sikit, tak pasal-pasal kang kene sue. But alhamdullilah, mira dah enjoy walaupun banyak keje. Series punye banyak keje, memang tak de time la nak chatting sangat ke ape ke. Keje banyak, tapi bile timesheet tak reti pulak nak bubuh ape.

Baru baru ni pi klcc jap jumpe client, satu bende tak best bile pi klcc, ramai betul budak yang kenal, budak utp apetah lagi, rase macam utp no 2. Bayangkan mase nak amik visitor pass tu, dah ade orang tegur. "Ni dari Melawati kan?". Yang paling best bile jumpe.. "Miss Amira, lecturer Stamford kan?" Oh no, i met my student. Hehe, best betul sebab still panggil miss lagi..

Khas untuk budak-budak utp yang amik reskilling program
Baru-baru ni pett datang kat ey bagi motivation talk to all petronas scholar, mainly for bumiputera. Boss die dah tukar, en rashid. En rashid pun ade same mase meeting tu. Mira ngan sadat laa yang paling banyak cerite sekali al maklum la kite ni kan datang dari planet lain. So, cakap punye cakap, pett kate die nak sponsor sume fees kite tapi ngan syarat only ACCA n MICPA n we promise to come back to pett after getting our CA. Mase mira cakap mira nak amik MIT and sadat nak amik CISA, punyelah die tak kasik. Die kate, kalau macam tu lepas tige tahun pun tak dapat laa nak keje balik ngan derang and paling tak best, kene bayor sendiri.

Hai hai hai, tough decision, dearie, suamiku yang sporting tak kisah mira amik cume die pesan jangan lupe priority. Tapi kalau dah amik ni, hmm. i wish i can take acca but dunno whether i can take the pressure or not. Kalau mira bujang, ape salah nyer kan, pulun 3 tahun gile-gile nak dapat lagi 20 tahun gaji yang menggile - insyaallah. Tapi dah kawin ni, tak sanggup lak rasenye. i love my hubby very very very much :) Tapi macam mane pun, kudos to pett, sebab mira rase die bagi full support pade kite, cume terserah pade kite nak amik ke tanak. Mira rase kalau ape-ape baik kite contact nazreen kalau nak tau ape details lagi.

Ok, 3.40 time to cook for sahur. Ok, see ya!!

Bile kite meningkat dewasa, care pemikiran kite akan berubah. Umur dan persekitaran memainkan peranan, kalau kite anak sulung atau kite ni jadi tulang belakang mak ayah kite, care kite membesar berbeza.

Terlalu banyak paparan mengenai kesusahan hidup rakyat malaysia yang di tonjolkan di tv-tv. Terlalu banyak warna kehidupan di sebalik kegemilangan malaysia di mata dunia. Masih ade lagi insan-insan yang bertungkus lumus mencari sesuap nasi untuk meneruskan baki-baki 24 jam sehari.

Dan, seharusnya kite bersyukur dengan ape yang kite ade, dengan ape yang kite miliki dan ape yang telah allah berikan kepada kite. Bile lihat balik posting mira yang lalu, terasa macam mira tidak bersyukur dengan ape yang mira perolehi.

bukan tidak bersyukur, tapi sebagai manusia, mira tak dapat lari dari menghadiahkan yang terbaik untuk diri sendiri. Walau macam mane pun, hadiah utama dalam hidup adalah kebahagiaan sebab "bahagia" adalah satu simbolik kehidupan yang tidak dapat dijual beli.

Mira bukan datang dari keluarga berada, mama dan baba tak pernah manjakan anak-anak dengan wang. Kebanyakan keinginan kami adik beradik, dipenuhi dengan duit tabung sendiri. Mama dan baba berusaha keras untuk menyara kami adik beradik, al maklum makan pakai dan kelengkapan anak-anak bukan murah ketika ini. Tapi, yang pasti kami bahagia. Bahagia dengan apa yang ada.

Memiliki suami yang bertanggungjawab dan penyanyang menjadi idaman setiap wanita dalam dunia ni dan alhamdulillah allah telah menghadiahkan rezeki itu kepada mira. Walaupun kehidupan kami tidak kaya dari segi harta, tapi kehidupan kami kaya kasih sayang. Kami masih di dalam peringkat mencari kestabilan rezeki. Walaupun ada keinginan kami yang tak dapat dipenuhi, tapi kami bangga kerana kehidupan kami adalah hasil titik peluh sendiri.

Pahit jerit mencari wang kini tak sama ketika bujang dahulu. Walaupun gaji sebagai lecturer di kolej dahulu jauh lebih rendah dari gaji yang dimiliki kini, namum perbelanjaan adalah berbeze. Selepas berkahwin, komitmen lebih diutamakan, kehidupan masa akan datang lebih diberi perhatian, bantuan untuk keluarga mula diberikan dan perbelanjaan harian dirancangkan.

Mira percaya pada rezeki, rezeki ada di mana-mana cuma kite kene berusaha mencarinya. Perjalanan kami berdua masih jauh, Emran ade agenda yang tersendiri dan Mira ade plan yang tersendiri walaupun Dearie duk cakap mira ni banyak sangat plan. Kami berusaha untuk menaikkann taraf kehiduapn kami, yang pasti bukan untuk kami, khas untuk generasi kami, insyaAllah.

Syukur kite di Malaysia kerana kite bebas mencari rezeki tanpa ade sekatan. Jika rezeki lebih jangan lah dilupakan kepada mereka yang memerlukan kerana tangan yang memberi itu lebih baik dari yang menerima.

Lastly, selamat menyambut kedatangan al-mubarak...

Berjumpe dengan rakan-rakan

Selepas kahwin, jarang benar rasanya mira jumpe dengan rakan-rakan, ada tapi setakat berjumpe one to one, dah lame tak kembalikan zaman mase dekat U dulu keluar beramai-ramai.

Dan hari ni, yeah!! girls day out, terima kasih kepada suamiku yang tercinta yang membenarkan puan wan faziatul amira keluar bersama geng-geng di utp. Walaupun agak lama tiba di Mid Valley disebabkan terpaksa menguruskan hal pembelian rumah dan Suamiku nak pergi tengok exhibition IPTA dekat PWTC dulu, tapi tak menjadi alasan untuk jumpe jugak dengan derang.

Awal-awal lagi mira dah pesan, "tidak dibenarkan gosip selagi mira tak sampai" nyeh nyeh nyeh, sekali betulll pesanan itu diambil kire. Cayanggg kawan-kawanku.

Noli - lame tak jumpe orang PTD sorang ni. Sama macam dulu, tak banyak beze, still ajak makan bile2 pun tak akan ditolak.

ujie - budak ni selalu jumpe die sebab rumah die on the way nak ke rumah mak sedara abang kite. so tak banyak beze. cuma bile jumpe die tu dah kat rumah tak de lah nampak ape. Satu perubahan, kawan ni make up dah sekarang.. amboi amboi

ain - makin lawa.. thats the truth!! bile cakap kat Dearie, die cakap "mestilah, adik kite" Note:Ain adik angkat Em

farah - same.. tak banyak beze, last sekali jumpe die mase mira interview kat kpmg. memang tak banyak beze, tapi asyik on the phone, tak sure lah pulak dengan sape.. hmmm

ida - cik kak kite ni, lagi tak banyak beze, kire tak tau langsung ape nak beze. still the same..

Gambar takde, mira tak bawak kamera, kite ni bukannye gune handphone ade kamera, nak pakai kamera em, canggih sangat sampai mira tak tau nak gune, lagipun besau sangat..

kesimpulannya, kiterang still same.. biase lah soalan cepu emas yang tak kan terlepas "dah ade ke belum".. heard that a few of my friends are getting married, already married, dah tunang, ade anak, dah clash, dah ade yang baru.. a lot to catch up.. and a lot yang mira tak tau.. hai..

but, the outing memang best, ape tah lagi dengan anak dara semua. rase macam zaman dolu-dolu. kesian derang, derang teringin nak datang rumah, tapi mira tak kasik. hehe, sori erk, next time, next week pun tak pe, but not this week.. ada masalah teknikal yang tak dapat dielakkan. :p

and terima kasih kepada suamiku yang baik budi melepaskan bini die berpoya-poya dengan kawan-kawan buat pertama kali. hehe kesian die sebab mira tinggalkan die without bagi die makan dulu.. hahah jahat kan :p tapi suamiku sangat sporting tolong anto dan amikkan bini die ni

Mase pergi kat pwtc tadi, jenguk jugak dekat utp punye booth, malangnye lah kan.. kenape tunjuk research pasal engineering, wheres research in IT? jangan lah PETRONAS outsource kan IT, ketepikan jugak research in IT.. hmmph..

mira jumpe lagi dua budak jasin yang tak pernah jumpe, zulfadzli - jumpe kat pwtc.. good, dah keje sendiri, datang jauh dari terengganu sebab dapat peluang duduk dalam parlimen mase pembentangan belanjawan 2006. effa - fazilah, keje dekat england optical kat mid valley jadi optician. so sape-sape rosak mate macam mira, boleh lah jumpe die. seronok dengar balik pasal kawan-kawan.. tapi yang pasti, semakin jauh usia kite melangkah semakin jauh kite tinggalkan masa yang telah digunakan. So, hargailah ape yang kite ada kini sebelum kite jauh meninggalkannye..
Budget 2006 part ii

Full budget of 2006 has been presented by Pak Lah late this evening. At my office, all the upper management together with the clients has been assigned to be an observer for this upcoming budget and for us; it was a so call party since no bosses were around to spy on us. A staff told me that every year when the budget is announced, all the upper management will stay back usually until late at night to discuss and review the changes before it is circulated to all "covered person".

After the budget session, we quickly catch the managers to get the highlights on the budget session but most of them just said "no drastic changes". When I was busy checking the Income Tax Act, I received a SMS from hubby, he informed that he will affected with the changes. BONUS!!

This year, our budget theme is "Strengthening Resilience, Meeting Challenges". This Budget emphasies various measures to enhance national resilience and our ability to meet emerging external challenges, arising from escalating oil prices, higher interest rates and increasing global competition.

For me, these points have gained my interest

1.With the measures in this Budget, growth will remain strong at 5.5% in 2006.

2.A sum of RM136.8 billion to be appropriated in 2006 Budget, an increase of 5% compared to 2005. - good as it will help our people

3.Will focus on improving the facilities mainly for the school children to avoid fatal accidents.

4.Tax on liquor up by 9% and tax on cigarettes up by 13%

5.Improving further the government's delivery system - hope it will come true as I deal a lot with the Inland Revenue

6.In line with the move to enhance the delivery system, financially autonomous statutory bodies will be allowed to determine their own schemes of service. - im looking more on EPF, SOCSO and Tabung Haji

7.Recognising the importance of corporate compliance, audit fees will be allowed tax deductions - but I am not sure how it will be done

8.The Government proposes that the tax relief of RM4,000 for each child studying in local U or higher learning based would be given automatically. - good news for my parents

9.In encouraging lifelong learning, the scope of courses that qualify for tax relief of RM5,000 to individual tax payers will be broadened. - I will take ACCA or MIT into considerations then

10.Programs for unemployed graduates

11.Private diesel vehicles exceeding 1,600 cc be given a road tax reduction of 40% effective 5 October 2005.

12.Old and the needy will be increased from RM135 to RM200 per month and

13.A special payment of RM200 for pensioners in October 2005. - big smile for my inlaws

14.RM80-RM100 will be given for the orphans and poor children. - alhamdulillah

15.The Government proposes that the option for RPGT exemption be given to the owner of the residential property, irrespective whether it is the husband or the wife and each of them are allowed to claim one property for exemption of RPGT on a once in a life-time basis. - now I have more cases.. hmmphh

For my hubby and my parents, they loveee these..
16.RM150 a month for those working in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Ampang Jaya, Kajang, Klang, Selayang, Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya, Johor Bahru, Georgetown and Butterworth

17.The ITKA for all officers in Grades 41 and 42 as well as Grade 45 for lecturers will be fixed at RM300 per month

18.Those earning more than RM1,000 a month will be paid a bonus of one month salary subject to a minimum of RM1,500.

Nothing interests me on ICT hehe and face the fact, nothing on house buyers except for the developer who has been encouraged to develop the low cost houses. By the way, great work Pak Lah..

Deep inside my heart

Everyday when I get out of bed, one question that lingered around my head, "Am I doing the right thing?" and "Am I sure?" But, I am afraid to turning back, there is no way to turn back and start all over again after all the hassles that I have gone through. Plus, I should realize that age is the main factor not to go back to square one.

Since my childhood, I love to be stand out person or in other words "the best among the best", but honestly I lost this self esteem when I was in jasin and it became worst after my cycle of friends has been offered a scholarship to study abroad. I still remember, since I was small, I never missed and read Hari Raya wishes from those who studied abroad, hoping that it will inspire me one day. Even though, I am happy that most of my friends have appeared in the newspaper, but deep inside my heart, I am disappointed.

I do understand Allah has a better plan for me. After a long heart broken (not getting that scholarship), I tried to breath again and telling the world that I am fine. And telling myself, there is still some space of improvement and ways to success.

And with this determination, I tried to jump into this field especially when I am aware that the qualification is priceless. Sometimes i feel i aim too high but i feel good about it, at least that is a colourful of my life. But, with this little knowledge, I am scared. Scared to fail, scared to move on although I am in love with this job. It sucks when people think that I am dumb and slow as I know I can shine brightly. And again, it effects my self esteem - badly..

But, i must motivate myself that everyone is looking at me so all I need to do is, stop thinking negatively and create a positive thinking and it must start with "MIRA WORLD!!!" :) Amin...

Not my day

I did a biggggg mistake that can ruin my reputation. The bad news is, one of the senior manager is not happy with what i did, damn ****. It started when one of the senior associate asked me to prepare a fax letter for a company in belgium, but what i did was, i did prepared the letter but using my own sentences and directly faxed it to belgium. Fax tu pulak ade la dalam tebal 2cm and it contains the personal details of a client. It took about 2 hours for the transmission, and unlucky for me because all the papers went through.

Supposedly, i need to get verification and approval from the upper level but hmm.. Ok, it's over, should learn from the mistake but up until now, i couldnt manage to say sorry for myself. End of story.


Nurul najahah adakah anda bace blog saya? Kalau bace, selamat hari lahir yang ke 23, sorry la dear, terlupe pulak, waa birthday ko tahun ni, buncit la perut ko kan :) selamat hari lahir, murah rezeki dan panjang umur..


Ayak, baru je nak beronline, hubby dah suruh tolong die, sebab minggu ni dah start iso audit, ish ish ish.. kacau betul :p Oh by the way, dearie suruh mira betulkan ayat ni.

and my fave response is "ape nak buat dah jodoh, but im enjoying it" --- > written in my last entry

Dearie kate bunyi macam terpakse.. Mane ade laa sayang, jenuh orang pujuk die, nasib baik ade skill :p Bunyi macam terpakse erk? anyway, im happy, happy sesangat, u can judge from my face, badan (makin besorrrr!!) orang gemuk ni happy kan.. so, korang pun paham2 laa yer.. ok nak tolong Mr Emran. n..

Mereka kate

I understand lately i always grumble about my current job and today, i will write it again.. hehehe. After most of my colleagues knows that i have this title -- err Ms. Emran, at least each one of them would begin with a very well-known conversation when we started to chit chatting.. The usual frantic situation

"i heard u r married"
"u look quite young"
"not many people here getting married in the early age"

and my fave response is "ape nak buat dah jodoh, but im enjoying it"

And the conversation does not end there. By heart, i realized that they are trying to tell me that this job requires times and sacrification. Their experienced during the peak season will be the best flavour in playing with my capability and mix emotion.

"Mira tau tak, mase peak period, kiterang siap tido kat opis lagi, senior manager pun tido kat opis, december dah start balik lambat, pukul 9.30pm malam tu biase laa, kalau mase april, lagi laa, tengah malam baru balik, esok datang ofis macam biase"

"amira, you know rite during the peak period, weekend oso with hv to come to work"

"still remember last 30 apr, the last date of submission, i came at 6am and went back at 6am the next day, i dint sleep at all. no joke man.."

"suami akak datang tengok akak datang keje, menangis die tengok akak keje, mase tu pulak akak tengah pregnant 3 bulan"

AND that is why one of the interviewer really emphasized on pregnancy during the intervewing session. Hmm, bukan peak period pun, i am bz, every now and then the senior manager will be chasing us to catch for the datelines, follow ups and progress.

To be honest, i am not afraid on my capability, i know i am capable to do it because i do have one determination that i really want to prove to everyone, BUT what im afraid of is - MY RESPONSIBILITY AS A WIFE... can i cope out?


Weird.. Really weird, even though they noticed that PETRONAS is giving out 6 months bonus (like samah said) but kakak-kakak kat sini (oh, im the 2nd youngest in the dept) they dont really, how to say yer.. derang memang berperasaan pasal bonus, tapi derang macam tak heran.. (i dunno how to describe). why?? that is what i have to find out, when i asked, they just smiled and laughed, "alaa kat sini kene tahan je, tahan kene marah dengan client, tahan kene marah dengan boss, kalau nak tahu, keje lame sikit"

ayoo!! can i??

Membayar Saman

Ni semalam punyer cerite tapi update arini sebab log in kat opis.. :)

Hari yang sangat memenatkan lagi meletihkan.
Masuk kerje dengan muka yang segar tapi balik dengan lemah longlai.
Bermulanya kisah di mana WFA datang ofis dengan tidak berape ade keje,
lepas keadaan yang sungguh membosankan, WFA membuatlah aktiviti yang
diwajibkan kepada semua staff EY, ape lagi kalau bukan web based learning.
Sekali bile WFA buat, banyak lah pulak salah die, lalu WFA pun berhenti
dan duduk diam-diam. Sekali bile dah mule duduk diam-diam, WFA
kebosanan lalu berjumpe lah seorang demi seorang dan mintak kerje, dan
hasilnya!! ya betul, banyakkkkkk keje jadinya. Tapi tak pe, kali ni punye keje
memang apply betul lah ape yang belajar dalam kelas tax dekat MICPA
dulu. Hari ni first time sediakan client punye tax computation dari A
sampai Z. Not perfect,banyak jugak salah, but im having fun!!

Walaupun dekat mane-mane tempat keje kite pergi ade pros and cons tapi
dekat EY ni ape mira suke, derang sikit pun tak kedekut ilmu. Mintak
lah tolong derang ajarkan tak kire lah mase derang sibuk ke tidak,
sungguh-sungguh derang ajar kite sampaikan cara nak insert table pun derang
tolong ajarkan.. hehe tapi mira senyap je laa, takkan la nak tunjuk
terror pulak kan. Anyway, kalau orang kate Chinese kedekut ilmu, but in EY
theres no such thing as they are kedekut ilmu. Sharing knowledges is
ciculated around the dept even though they are the managers..

But still, i have to admit, the workload is tiring, tak tau laa macam
mane kalau peak season kan.. huh!! Dearie siap cakap lagi boleh ke mira
nak tahan keje macam ni. Nak-nak lepas ni kalau kene amik profesional
cert, lagi laaa, dah la kelas die weekend je, kalau amik, memang confirm
dah tak de holidays langsung selama 3-5 tahun :(


Right after the office hour, hubby and i went to IOI Puchong to pay for
the summons, actually yesterday we went to 1utama but unlucky for us,
the counter was closed although it was only 8.30pm. Dekat IOI, dari jauh
dah nampak orang beratur panjang, mak aiiii, ikut hati malas la pulak
nak beratur, tapi disebabkan datang bukan main jem lagi, kiterang pun
belasah beratur, siap beli paper, makanan semua, sebab q memang panjang
macam komuter, (panjang tapi slow). Beratur punyer beratur, sekali
kiterang dapat tau yang line kiterang beratur tu untuk check saman, bukan
untuk bayo saman. Adoiii!! mase tu rase nak pengsan sebab barisan nak
bayo panjang berjele, dah la panjang tak campur lagi dengan orang potong
line. Pulak tu satu kaunter je derang sediakan.

So, terpaksalah pulak beratur balik. Nasib badan. But since, daku di
sebelahnye dan die di sebelah daku, tak de la boring sangat, sampai amoi
dekat belakang kiterang siap cakap lagi seronok tengok kiterang, hehe.
Beratur sikit punyer lame, sekali bile lagi 6 orang depan kiterang,
polis tu announce die dah nak tutup kaunter, waaa macam nak jerit pulak
sebab dah beratur 2 jam, siap pakat, kalau orang tu last person boleh
bayo, kiterang nak suruh orang yang last bayokan.. Tapi nasib kiterang
baik sebab sempat!! pergh!! wat a day..


Tahukah anda bahawa pekerja-pekerja PETRONAS mendapat habuan 4 bulan
gaji sempena sambutan PETRONAS yang ke 30. AAh, sungguh cemburu, tapi tak
mengapa, itu rezeki mereka.

entry yang dah lame

I've been keeping this entry too long and its not worth to delete it as it can be a diary on my first few days in EY. Actually, i write almost everyday but since we dont have internet connection, so, i just deleted when i feel it is already oudated. Although once in a while i simply log in to blogger but lately hubby seems very strict on it.. (note:if im connected at nite, it means i tapped the connection :p) Ok, do enjoy this entry..



I do admit that I am too excited talking about my new job, perhaps it is a job of a lifetime. Having a degree in IT, I never thought that i will become a tax people one day. So, my first day in EY is scheduled as I expected. As you can see in Dearie’s last entry, it showed how I was quite nervous yet happy.

Only during the registration process, I realized that I am one of 15 new employees, of course my first glanced at the list, I searched for a malay’s name. Well to me, when you have the same races around you, it will be easier and more secured. Before I waited for the girls to walk in the room, I talked to this guy and apparently he was in the same situation as mine, having a non-related degree and jumped into tax line. Yeah, strike 1 - I am not alone.

The orientation started with a short briefing from the HR exec basically the instruction to fill in the employment form, medical checkup and etc. Then, she told us that we need to attend two days orientation mainly to help us to familiarize with the working environment.

The information given are very useful to us but of course at one point I was feeling drowsy, yeah too much info - Strike 2. But it changed when the presenter highlights on the promotion, salary and benefits, that’s where I proved that I have two spotlight eyes.

Out of 15, only 5 of us under the tax line and luckily one of them are in the same department as mine. We chatted and chatted and I found out she is my lecturer's niece back in UTP (Mrs. Satirenjit), what a smalllll world!!

On the second day, the orientation emphasized more on the paperless system, how to use our lotus notes, filling the timesheet, leave and etc. Well, actually I had used Lotus Notes before during my intern even I developed a system using the domino designer. BUT guess what, I looked soo dumb in the class, asking a lot of questions as if I do not know computer at all. It was all started because the notebook given to me having some technical problem and I was left behind for the lesson. Ish ish ish..

By the way, I was the only one who has this title – Mrs. Some of them gets shocked because they said I am too young to get married. Its fine with me especially when the mentioned – I look young. Hehe. There was a conversation between me and this girl where she gave an unintentional expression about married woman without realizing that she was talking to a married woman, hehe. I just listened to her but at the end of it, I told her my status, and it was soooo funny to see her blushing and of course she did apologized.

I did my medical checked up yesterday, and official result for my new weight, increased 5 kg since I get married but decreased 3 kg since I last checked. Hmm still not good.

Make it happen

Double it takes when your words two times running from your action where every seconds your hearts pounding like a valcano waiting to explode. The passionate to be in the taxation was a gift as I could see myself 20 years from now sitting in the room where it is only occupied for "some" senior staff. (tak salah kan berangan)

But only when I find the real exposure of being in the corporate world, make me realize that obsessive is not enough to count your dedication towards the job. Energy and commitment are those important aspects that counts your goals towards your life. At this point, promise is not a mere promise, but promise is incredible that I must treasure to find the real motivation – "make it happen".


Hunting to get a place to live in is easier but hunting to get a dream house to live in is harder. As you know, at first we are already agreed to buy a house in Melawati and we already paid for the legal process, but after the deepest thought, we rather lose that amount of money instead of putting ourself into the next 30 years paying for the house.
We are eyeing on several options mostly double story link house in Klang Valley but at the end we understand money is the biggest issue that we couldn’t bear off. Even though parents are behind us to help with the financial but we want it to be our very own meaningful asset.
Alas, we decided to buy a small condo located quite a distance from our office to end our house hunting for a momment. Enough to charter our family for the next 10 years, insyaAllah. And now, I am looking forward to interior design and to "make it happen", I need more money to pump into my bank account. I really hope its satisfy my desire when our house is completed at the end of next year. Abang, allow me to waste my money on it because that will make me soooooo happy. Im sure you love to see my smiling face kann :p and I would be more appreciate if you be part of it :).


Last but not least, i want a baby.. sooooo "make it happen"

Friday, September 09, 2005

dah lame

Im updating from the office, no one is around so i take this opportunity to &*#$%(%@. My department is organizing a treasure hunt, but since im still new, so i refused to take part. yeah maybe later..

hows work? basically i do a lot of computation, playing with the figures and filing the documents. This job require accuracy even though we are the first timer because if one figure is missing, it means we are in trouble. I did one mistake recently whereby i coincidently underestimate the space to write in client's address, (im using typrewriter: note:typewriter is used to fill in some forms. ) hmm its a big deal because the client already signed the form. Luckily, we had another form.

the beauty of this job, hmm rahsie.. :p well, when u r talking about tax it is really p&c. on the other hand, mvec in mid valley currently organizing property event for bumiputera and it is good chance for us to buy our property at a special rate. Note: We had cancelled to buy a house in Melawati due to some considerations and now we are looking something big.. insyaAllah

ok, anyone going for saufy's wedding this weekend? do PM me.. bye

A new report for a new life

First of all, thank you for all the sms-es, shoutbox messages and telephones called that I received as a motivational factor for my first day at work. Seriously it was not easy for a person who has 4 months break to get back to the employment world again.

Waking up early in the morning is much more difficult than awaking Dearie because I need to be ready earlier than him. Luckily Dearie is not demanding for his breakfast so I can skip the job for the time being.

But honestly, my house is totally a mess, and I hope, no one will call me this weekend to come over to my house. I am still in the learning process to balance up my career and my duties as a wife, so please dun give me a heart attack that u r a mile away from my house.

Anyway, after this, Women's Day brings more definition to me as I just realized woman is the backbone of the history. The experience being a career woman for two days makes me proud of being a woman. I salute to all beautiful mothers and wife out there who have been working so hard to earn for a living and improving our family financial. Seriously, it is quite tiring to keep fit after the office hour but since it is a job that most pahala is gained, cooking for hubby and doing all the house chores honestly becomes more challenging than before.

To this, Mama you are still on top of my list. I remember once I popped out a question "tak penatke mama dah 20 tahun buat keje yang same". Mama, once she step in the house, she will walk quickly towards the kitchen to ensure the food is there. If not, with the tudung is still covering her head, she will cook for us. Then, she will assist my two little siblings for their homework, and the routine continues for more than 15 years. Back to the questioned, she just smiled and told me sooner or later I would understand the meaningful of "creating" a generation. And only now, I found out the statement is nowhere to be found in the text book but it is in our cyclical of life.

Trust me, once u have a baby, going back home and see your baby smiling at you, definitely it will pay your day and I dream for it.. :)

Yeah!! My cousin is getting married!!

She may not reading this blog and not even know that im having a space in cyberworld to express my inner thought, but good news is worth to share!! Yeah, a cousin of mine, Intan is getting married this coming December. Ani, intan soksek dulu tu!!

Wo wo wo, shes younger than me, same age with Saffuan, im so excited because she is the next person after me who is getting married. Tak sabar nak tolong die for preparation, and my mum too is excited hearing this shocking news!! Boleh bukak a new club. She came over to my house yesterday and we were chit chatting like hell!! How i missed my gossipping.. keh keh keh..


Eh betul ke Mencari Cinta dah habis?? Semalam tak sempat nak catch up , tak tahu pulak dah final episode. Ade orang yang tengok? Can u update for me?? Malaysian Idol - haha Adam terkeluar. My sis told me, i missed the result show. Ntah laa mira rase Adam tu tak sesuai nak jadik Malaysian Idol, to be honest, i cant see any contestant who has a good voice quality + star value like Jac. Rase macam Malaysian Idol 2 ni banyak hambar die.


Tok Ndak Mira dekat Ipoh meninggal dunia Ahad lepas. Mira tak sempat nak ke sana sebab mase weekend mira ade dekat Melaka. Kalau balik Taiping atau gerik, my family never failed to pay a visit there. Mama told me, tok ndak cakap die nak sangat tengok kenduri mira tapi tak boleh nak pergi sebab tak sihat. Semoga roh arwah dicucuri rahmat. Alfatihah..


Tomorrow is my last day as unemployed graduate. Keh keh keh, im sure i will miss my day cooking for hubby's lunch, watching TV and tidur balik lepas Dearie pi keje!! Im excited but nervous at the same time because i do not know what to expect. Anyway, here i come..


We bought Mawi's CD hahah. Dearie & Me were giggling all the way towards the cashier, rase macam kelakar pulak as if we are too fanatic with Mawi. Dearie tak habis-habis cakap "Mira mira tutup CD tu nanti orang nampak lak kite beli Mawi". Are we fanatic?? Actually we even want to buy a cassette but SOLD OUT!! Hehe.. Mawi mawi..


Malam ni ade kenduri kawin, but right after kenduri kawin, hubby, me, jiji and mimi are heading to klcc :p Not to celebrate Merdeka but accompany my hubby to snap pictures in order to particpate in MERDEKA photography contest.

I miss..

It started when i read an article about alumni and it reminds me on my "those days" where i had spent most of my 24 hours session with that beloved places. It begins with..

Sek Keb Ampang. I spent 6 years here, this is the place where i learnt about the importance in having a true friendship. At this place, i met my long time best friend. Most of my childhood memories has been created here..

Then, i moved to SMK Taman Melawati. Melawati, as it names, i learnt more about social lifestyle in KL. I dont have any SMKTM pictures but they are part of the circle of my friends in Melawati. Samah, Nad, Yani, gambar korang tak de laa :p Oh, i spent 3 years here

Then i moved to MRSM Jasin, the place that has given me the strength to start a new journey since i have failed to enforce my original planned. *sigh.. Anyway, this is Examination Hall aka Dewan Besar but to Jasinian we called it as DeBen - Dewan Bendahara. 98 & 99, the year that has affected my entire life...

I really missed this bed since i had been using it for 3 years. 2 tahun lagi tu kat tempat lame. This is in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS where i pursued my tertiary level for 4 1/2 years but alas i dint use my degree. 5 years definitely this place is SOMETHING to me. If it is not because of UTP, i wouldnt know computer, driving a car, Lumut, Teluk Batik, Manjung, living with different races, religions, lovely housemates, dedicated team mates, handphones, shopping, GOSSIP and HOT stuff (I meannnn really HOT!!). Inilah tempatnya kasihku akhirnya bertaut pada si dia.. ewahh ewaahh..

My first introduction to the employment world and this is my first cubicle as a lecturer in StamfordCollege. Even though i talked a lot about the ichy bitchy stuff but i really missed my colleagues there. We are very close to each other (until now) but life has to move on.

Although i completed my eight months training in petronas compared to this college (6months) but the time spent in Stamford is much more valuable and priceless especially in teaching me to appreciate $$$.

Last but not least, PAAC, hmm.. only 3 months but it twists my paths of my career and finally it shows what i am capable to do, insyaAllah. Bile ingat balik, mase kat PAAC ni laa mira tercungap-cungap nak amik periksa, kawin, preparation tuk untuk kawin, and mase nilah paling banyak bertekak dengan hubby, huhuhu... but alhamdulillah at last, i passed the exam, im married and HAPPY...:)

Akhir kata, setiap detik, setiap langkah, setiap bicara, setiap kata, melambangkan kedewasaan kita, kematangan kita dan ketabahan kita. Dengan melihat dekat mana mira pergi, mira akan ingat apa yang dah mira belajar, mira ikut dan mira turut..

Selamat Pengantin Baru Wan & Azmi

Selamat Pengantin Baru to Wan Anisha and Azmi. Anyway, i called the bride Kak Wan. Hubby's friend in Legenda, we used to have "sistem barter" when hubby was still working there. Kalau mira tidur sane, ade jugak tumpang tido kat rumah si kak wan ni, si azmi lak, without fail tido rumah Dearie...

Anyway, picture worths a thousands words. To Legenda-rian, please ask Emran for the pictures..

Gambar ni mase tengah makeup, mira yang ambil gambar ni so takde la artistik nyer. Itupun Dearie suruh masuk balik, sebab die kate mira ambil gambar tak kene dengan care die..

Detik-detik sebelum jadi Puan. Since i can be considered as "new wedly couple" so i contributed some ideas for the bride to pose. This is part of it.. hehe

First time dalam sejarah hidup mira, akad nikah pukul 12 tengah malam sebab pihak laki kete rosak dekat Bukit Merah. Although the groom arrived earlier but he had to wait for that car because that person holding the mas kahwin. Yang best tu tok kadi siap balik rumah balik tido dulu.

Bergelarlah suami isteri

Dan bermulalah sesi bergambar..

The next day, the bride with the hantarans that she created herself, soo creative, and i honestly in love with the color..

Beatiful smile that rocks Azmi's world!!

Pengantin lame dengan pengantin baru.. :p Mase ni kak wan senyum lagi, kesian die, a few minutes after that, her purse has been stolen. Pity her, among hundreds guests attended the wedding, she's the target. Tak de rezeki ape nak buat kan..

Emm, saje nak tunjuk gambar mira dengan kawan-kawan baru kat situ :p.. Dearie bukan kawan? He was there but too bz with the camera, sape2 lepas ni nak suruh die jadik cameraman, silakan silakan

Dengan Lengenda-rian.. Hubby sorang je laki yang muncul, yang lain ade hal. Lepas ni dalam group tu sorang-sorang tunggu giliran

Sebab mira dah jadi macam tuan rumah kat situ, so terpaksa lah makan lambat sikit. AND buat pertama kalinye mira belasah dua pinggan dekat kenduri kawin tanpa segan silunye. Ish ish ish,mane tak naik kan :p

Selamat pengantin baru Kak Wan and hubby, semoga bahagia ke anak cucu. Good luck and cherish every momment with your hubby and im sure you will enjoy it!!

off to PENANG!!

My last entry dated 17 august, and i WAS planning to post an entry especially dedicated to my bro for his birthday, but unfortunately something came across and my mind and deleted all my plan!! Ish ish ish..

Anyway, happy belated birthday to Saffuan - Wan Ahmad Saffuan Wan Mohd Salleh, "beliau merupakan anak yang kedua dari 7 adik bearadik, berasal dari kuala lumpur, berusia 22 tahun" - (note:sila bace macam gaye Aznil introduce pelajar AF.. hehe)

Saffuan saffuan.. we used to have alot of fight during our childhood days and i still remember the last time he punched me when i was 14 years old. Usually it happened because i loved to blab (even until now) and as usual guys cant stand it and finally used violence against "woman".. ish ish ish

We had a lot of stupid games that i can still recall especially he "helped" me to loose my weight. I admit, my "ketembaman" terserlah since i was young and people love to make fun of me. So, one day, i had this wild idea to reduce my weight but i need someone to help me and of course saffuan is the best person. So, i stand behind the "closet door" and asked saffuan to push me hoping that i can shrink immediately!! Among the conversation that i can remember

"Kak long dah kurus ke"
"Belum lagi, tolak kuat-kuat sikit"

Hehe. Heloo, that time i was just 6 years old, but at least i have the idea rite??.. Anyway, even though both of us have different personalities but we can talk until azan subuh. Tak kire lah topik ape pun but of course once in a while, like many others, the arguments is still there.

Satu bende yang best pasal saffuan, die tak kisah bawak adik-adik die pi jejalan, tapi adik yang kecik-kecik laa. TAPI kalau nak jalan ngan kakak die, adik bawah die, HAREMMMMM die nak buat.. Kalau jalan pun, satu utara satu selatan..

Anyway, Happy birthday, i know u r reading this, tapi buat buat bodo :p Happy Birthday, like i said in the sms, panjang umur murah rezeki and ingat tuhan.

p/s Lepas ni nak pi Penang, now waiting for hubby. dia ade kelas, not a second honeymoon, but attending hubby's friend wedding. Tapi sambil menyelam minum air gak kan :p

Minggu yang sangat penat

I never knew that life has change tremendously after getting married. Honestly, you have to balance up your life even though you really want it. Marriage has changed the old Amira, no more - "alaa, lain kali boleh buat". Now, i am more focused in planning my future life.

As you all know, the main reason why i joined the three month conversion program under MICPA is because I am aware of the value of this qualification and the broad prospect of business advisory skills it'll give. I want to learn from a different dimension where i am able to learn the business areas. InsyaAllah, i can help hubby in his business.

But, as times goes by, i realised that auditing is far beyond my capability as a wife. It is not impossible for a woman to have a career and at the same time successfully provide for her family, but to me, auditing will limit our quality time with our own family. You know, im thinking IF i have a child one fine day, would i be a great mom that my child can see me as her/his idol. I understand that in auditing, the first three years is hell but after that your sky is your limit, but honestly i cant exchange it with what i have now.

But, i am very interested to be in this line, so then, i applied to be a tax consultant since becoming an auditor is not an option. A few of my friends told me "rugilaa mira" but for me, buat laa keje ape pun, kalau kite rajin, memang boleh berjaya. Of course i was puzzled and worried if im not in the right path. So yesterday, i went to MIT to ask everything that makes me headache. And i really satisfied with the answer. Yang mira tak berape sure lagi, how is the work culture.. All i know is, it is not as bad as auditing!!

On a different occasion, we just settled our housing loan and now we are just waiting for the loan approval. Guys, if you want to buy a property, you can always come and ask me since i have "some" experienced to share especially in selecting which Home loan you are going to use. :) Anyway, talking about our house, it is located in Taman Melawati Phase 6, sape-sape nak sewa rumah, silakan laa yer.. Tak pun, i hope you can spread out the words.. Thanks Setakat ni, kiterang tak advertise lagi. Oh, we are not planning to move there, we are more comfortable to live in Taman Desa since it is nearer to our office.. Ok, babai

Mencari Cinta

Reality TV has developed along with the medium and has changed as the nation changed. It has amused, surprised, and mortified millions of viewers through the years. The changes in program content reflect the changing times, what viewers want to know about the participants as well as what participants allow to be known about them has increased over the years.

In Malaysia, I guess it starts with Akademi Fantasia (tell me if it is wrong), and as usual the first appearance will always turn out to be more favorable even though now we have Malaysian Idol, Mentor, Audition, Victor Challenge, Explorace, Rexona No Sweat Challenge, AspirasiKu, Bersamamu and the latest reality show Mencari Cinta (ade lagi ke?), but as you can see, Mawi is still talks of the town. Heheh

Most of the reality Tv program has some similarity whereby it highlights on the participants talent but except for Mencari Cinta, it concentrates on love and passion. Mencari Cinta which aired on TV3 every Tuesday creates a new atmosphere for a reality show (im talking on behalf of Malaysia). Basically the show is about 9 male contestants (above 30 I guess - ujie fave age :p) trying to win a girl heart, not only a girl but her family too.

Most of us have banned the series as it is not suitable for our Malay culture but that doesn't stop me to be hooked on tv watching the show for an hour. Even my mum once told me "I cant believe my daughter watching the show" Oh, my mum really really hate the show even though last time she watched Average Joe with me.

I admit at one point this program is rubbish - is it too harsh :) even though we can see all the contestants really put an effort to entitle "the best man win". I understand, to them it is not about the game, it is about the love that one's can get at the end of the day.

Culture issues have been seriously debated from the viewers day by day, which definitely will raise the statistic of the show. And as far as I can see, her family plays a big role in determine which guy should be with Elly, and most of the times, the elimination result basically is based on her family valuation and this make me so sucked up with her decision!!

To me, reality program should instead be helping spread moral values, and honestly I cant see any in this program. Copying an idea from the westerners is fine, but the application must be suitable for the local situation. A girl entertaining 9 guys at one time will definitely bring defamation to her and her family. People will start comparing your attitudes and your looks and no doubt the viewers will talk about your family.

Although she told the reporters she is ready to face any feedback from the audience but hurting your family is hurting yourself to the bone! What do you think about this program??

Read this - if you are interested. The first person to be eliminated "online diary"

Jerebu dah pergi, AP senyap..

A poisonous haze blamed on forest fires in Indonesia reached dangerous levels in Klang Valley and nearby areas closing schools, halting some flights and keeping residents indoors and although the API readings have been dropping through out the day especially Kuala Selangor and Port Klang (Read this for new update on API) but we still have to limit our outdoor activity until it is safe for us!!

Azyan (my youngest sister) called me to inform that she “gets” 3 days holidays and persuading me (actually hubby) to fetch her to come over to my house. She is dying to play in the swimming pool, but of course my parents wont let her go.

Imagine, she has been SMS-ing and calling me and hubby every single minute reporting her daily routine. This is some of her SMS


So, I replied "Alaa senang je, jawapan die paku"


So after a few messages, I SMS her

“Eh ika, mama tak marah ke ika main telefon mama ni”


She typed all in capital letters. Haiii, I guess this is what happen when the children is on holidays or to be exact – during the emergency. Duit pun melayang-layang, ye laa – call laa, sms laa (kan everything involve money) hehehehe ..

Bird Park Contest

Although its a bit late for this entry, but i feel it is a waste not to share this good news. Before that, Mawi is the champ, well, enough said, everyone knows he is going to win. And since that, every day we have been forced to read about his winning as the headlines of the papers. And today, in Harian Metro, his fiancee also become one of the most wanted person to increase the sales of the newspaper. Read this..

But AF has create a history for me as the program has bring my family and hubby's friends gathered at my house watching the show. Why it is a history? The first time ever, i have to entertain them all by myself especially serving the food!! Before this, i just outsourced it to mama or to my maid. Hehe. Tak pun, i only prepared for one or two dishes than makcik or mama will complete the rest. Anyway, i enjoyed it even though tak sedap mane pun but at least i know what to expect next. Kan samah kan!! :D

Back to the story, my hubby has been announced as one of the winner in the Bird Park Contest last Saturday. At first, he was so frustrated because he just won the consolation prize but after looking at other pictures, then only he proud of himself. Plus, this is his first experience. Mira pun tumpang bangge, you know my hubby loves camera and he put a lot of efforts to capture the best picture of the birds!!

This is the pic..

Mase prize giving ceremony

At first we tot this enggang picture is going to win, i really loves this pic, sekali gambar lain pulak menang. Each of the participant is allowed to send 10 pictures. Ade exhibition dekat kl Bird Park, so this is the only pic besides the winning pic from Dearie in the exhibition.

Dearie with one of the judges, he said hubby's pic has a fine art. He said, if only the pic has a good composition..

Me, with Dearie pic. Tapi gambar burung ni bile print jadi gelap sikit..

With the 1st prize winner under the professional category.. Lawa kan gambar die

Ok, ni die orang yang menang Amateur & Professional.

Mira pulak excited, sebab Dearie pun dah syiokkk ngan contest-contest ni..:p

I have understood English for ages but as you can see it isn't very good yet. I used to be very unconfident when it comes to speak English even though I read a big pile of books written in English without any problems.

I have put a lot of effort in improving my English especially in writing, because to me, from writing, it portrays how my performance in English. Therefore, one of my self-improvement is writing some of my blog entries in English even though Im sure theres a lot of grammatical and spelling error. But who cares rite?

A few people care. That is the fact, this people I might say humiliating "US" who writes in English as if we are not recognizing our Malay language. Come on, you are sooo lucky, staying abroad and surrounded with the mat saleh, of course English is your medium and no doubt in one year you can speak fluently plus with the accent. I am not jealous, but somehow you should give more respect and put yourself in our shoes. End of story.

By the way, in my opinion, the best way to improve our English is watching tv without reading the subtitle. I have been doing this for a quite sometimes, but when I watch CSI, I really need the subtitle sebab memang mira mengaku mira susah nak paham. Hehe. In conclusion, (ade conclusion pulak :D) its worth to develop you English skills as a large part of the written material in the world is in English, so I supppose that it’s bound to be helpful at some point.
