old place, old memories

the team & i had our team lunch at bumbu bali last monday. management allocates certain amount of money for each team and the team then decide what they would like to do with the money and how they would like it to be spend (eg lunch, karaoke, bowling, gift voucher etc). we decided to go for lunch as that was the most convenient time for everyone and the easiest thing to settle for. we left the office around 1.30pm and headed straight to the restaurant which is located at bandar puteri, puchong. that was my first time being there after a year and the area is developing fast. traffic is heavier, shops are everywhere, two hospitals and there’s even a new flyover under construction. last time, Giant can be seen from the main road being the only landmark there, but now..not even a glimpse!

thank God i have moved out from that congested area. used to stay there for 3 years. 3 wonderful years..well you can say so. bitter sweet memories and hell yeah..life before was full of surprises! too many surprises that i almost stumble and fall..almost..*wink* well, i was living life to the fullest and experiencing a whole lot of experiences.bottom line is, there are things to be remembered and there are things you just have to forgive and forget. it was kinda hard to let them go at first but you just have to be strong and keep moving forward.

“live life to the fullest”..so they said. i’m just glad i have lived mine :P

shops hoping with E

it has been quite a while since my last entry. reason being, i was damn busy with work! but that was 2 weeks ago when i was caught up with this massive book. cleared the book the week after i got back from Spore and everything was fine until 2 weeks later, editor decided to do another review on the content. helloooo..u are not supposed to do that after the clearance date! turned out she did not do thorough checking the first time and publishing manager picked up some content errors and made her check every single sentence and of course amendments need to be done.

yes, i was the “lucky” PE who had to clean up her mess and redo the whole book. at that time, i was busy with another book and the other book was also a top priority. so there i was, juggling 2 books at once and never in my life on friday night, i have to stay late until 9pm. usually the latest for me would be around 7pm. stress..of course! and it certainly not good if you are planning to be a mom. finally i am able to breathe again..things are sailing smooth now. still windy here and there but quite on a good track. TL was away the whole week and i have to step up as the interim TL and thank God..no major problem. the team and i were in our own world and everybody kinda knew what we were supposed to do, so that kept us busy or at least we pretended to be busy :P

saturday the 8th was voting day for Malaysians and my very first too. not a big fan of politics but kinda enthusiastic to pay my responsibility. the opposition won and having that, clearly Malaysians want new state government to rule and i hope this new government will fulfill their promises. whatever it is, lets just hope for the best.

then on sunday, went shopping with one of my gurls..we decided to park @the gardens, to avoid the crowd in midvalley. we told ourselves, "naaa…tak mau la pegi midvalley, ramai orang! kita shop sini jer la.." and i told hubby.. "saya teman jer..nothing to buy pon..just jalan-jalan" but that was before stepping into the shops that have “SALE/DISCOUNT 50-70%” signs that made me went berserk! i got myself a 9West handbag, a cute baby-T from GAP and another shirt from Esprit (okay, Esprit is in Midvalley..oooppsss…looked like these 2 girls have changed their minds!). before i knew, i too have a list of things to buy…hehehe..so much of “teman jer & nothing to buy”. did try a pair of jeans @esprit but the cutting just wont fit..i still prefer Levi’s. i could fit into it and she couldnt..we were in different fitting rooms but we could still holler at each other & giggled like ain’t nobody’s business.. :P it was fun! i didnt manage to buy a pair of shoes/sandal. i want something comfortable which i could wear it to office & for leisure. guess & 9west..on sale but the heels were like 3-4 inches high..so not comfortable. we had lunch at this thai restaurant. the food was delicious but a bit spicy though..thai food..what do u expect? hehehe..nways, it sure gave us energy that made us changed our minds to go to MV. we were out for 6 hrs and by the end of the day..we were too exhausted and kaki sangat sakit okay..tak larat nak jalan..headache..too many people..so that was it..balik timee!

owh, regarding the handbag, we bought the same one only hers is black and mine is dark blue. both of us walked out of the store grinning from ear to ear, satisfied with our little investments. we do share the same taste since school years. we fancy the same clothes, shoes, handbags, purse, movies, books, hobbies, guys..well..so far no major argument..we totally respect each other preferences.

still related to handbag, my mom gave me one of her own, said that its suit me well than to her. i really like it but nothing compare to her maroon limited edition LC handbag. she said, “that one cannot give..not now..but feel free to have it if you want to borrow” ehehe..okay Umi..the other handbag pon cantik gaks..thanks. love u much!
