knowing me, n knowing u know me, i dont really have a resolute resolution. sangat suka just to go with the flow. what will be, will be. what goes around comes around. well u get my drift. kekadang memang, rasa macam daun berguguran, kalau jatuh atas tanah pun takde impact to anyone. i think not being content with my work (ie pharmacy) has got a lot to do with it.
a few things i hope to make things better next year:
1) lose weight!! (since when this is not a resolution every bloody year?) my weight really yo-yoed this year, n its really noticeable especially to those who are close to me. let me see, what i had tried:
+ Herbalife - (oh no that doesnt count because its last year)
+ Premium Beautiful - wore it for only two weeks religiously, then on off for two months. lost 7cm on my butt and 9 cm on my waist. been like that until now eventhough i havent worn it for more than 1 month. good no? tapi tak larat nak pakai pagi2. bila bangun je i was like, damn i have to wear that bloody pants. its so not good for my temper (am not a morning person). never minded wearing the bra and corset though. apakah nasib, bumper power sangat(??!!!)
+ Master Cleanse diet - havent tried anything this extreme before, but i was desperate to detox myself. Sila google untuk maklumat lanjut. Oh, btw, i only lasted two (bloody) days. but dua hari pun, ppl kat ofis noticed my face mcm kecik sikit n looked better. tak rasa lapar pun actually, tapi i crave teruk sgt on the second day sampai nangis mintak hariz belikan nasi ayam yang kedainya dah setahun kitorg tak pegi. gila kan, tetiba teringat.
skali skala buleh buat lagi satu ke dua hari. sedap!
ada satu lagi. baru beli ni ha. tgk la, bila dah selesai n ada hasil, i'll write it down here.
2) nnti esok2 pk lagi ok. later!

thanks partly to my sis, my hubba hubba, annnddddd my lipstick fitflop, i'm aching all over after a whole day of shopping. dah lama tak shopping, ni la jadinya. we were there before 11, and went back home well after 5. juz shop n makan, no wayang whatsoever! selalunya kalo one whole day tu mesti sebab tengok wayang la, kalau tak, not so long.
me and my sis have our own shopping list(!!) so we hit the stores soon after we parked. mad women, we were. kejap ke sana, kejap ke sini. hariz pun ngekor je (shopping list dia aku yang buat, duh). come to think of it, all we did was buy our essentials, nothing luxe, but still!!
we managed to grab a pair of ivory pumps for me, white(??!!) working shoes for hariz. working apparels for hariz. since dia dah boring terlalu ramai org pakai striped shirts to work (dulu masa awal2 trend tu keluar dia sorg je pakai ke hospital), he's back to plain shirts, and now has a thing for (gasp!!) checkered pants!
a bag for shuhada, boxes of coloured lenses for me, a few skincare items and accesories for us girls. shuhada punya pasal we surveyed on sunglasses as well, but now aku yang terkenang2kan fossil sunglasses that i saw!!i want, can? hariz kata kalau mimpi kena la pegi 1u balik :D
oh, i found a home for my stila eyeshadows! i'll tell u in another post okies! later!

i was hopping round the net when i came across allure.com's Get Youthful Skin: 12 Easy Anti-aging Tricks (omg aku rasa tua gila bila baca ni). some yg betul2 terkena batang hidung sendiri:
Tip no9: CLEAN UP YOUR ACTION
Remember the little things. They can lead to big trouble—like premature aging.
• Stop squinting (sunglasses help). And if you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, make sure your prescription is up to date.
• Avoid sipping through a straw. It contributes to lines around the mouth.
• Break the habit of resting your chin on your hand. (It stretches the skin.)
• Switch to a smooth satin pillowcase. The creases in cotton eventually make their mark on your face.
when i read this i was like omaigod omaigod i do all this i squint i sip through straws i rest my chin on my hands ALL THE TIME!!

kesian blog ni. kurang perhatian rupanya (macam tuan punya dia jugak). ntah la, tak rasa nak tulis apa. nak update pun... nothing interesting. i think.
bila baca blog reena, teringat yg i havent reviewed a book in a loooooonnnnggg time. the last i had a new one was a 2in1 book by nora roberts, 'dangerous'. tu pun i think, masa bulan puasa. other than that, i've been rereading harry potter 1 through 7 again. and again. and again. u know, like, baca dari buku satu sampai buku tujuh, then, ulang balik buku satu sampai buku tujuh. berapa kali khatam i've lost track.*
dari kecik mmg aku ni tak berapa normal agaknya. mak cakap, dulu masa aku takde adik lagi (ie b4 4 yrs old) mmg asyik telek children's encyclopedia and dictionary. tak payah mak aku suruh aku mmg suka telek (dan koyak) buku. n dalam banyak2 my siblings, aku la yg paling dapat perhatian penuh dari mak untuk learn how to read and count (nama pun anak sulonnnnggg), hence, b4 age 2 i've known how to spell simple words. and, nak tambah tak normal lagi, dah la pi tadika 2 tahun, on top of pegi tadika, i went for night tuition for BM, english and maths when i was 6!

1. went to subang parade while waiting hariz balik keja. bump into a senior colleague who went:
anis ni kalo jumpa je asyik siap bermekap. my impression sllunya mak datin je yg rajin p mekap2 kat counter ni. anis nak jadi datin ke?
assumption paling pelik penah aku dengar. ada je kengkawan aku rajin p beauty counter tp bukan datin punnn...
2. hubster balik keja sabtu malam dan buat muka terkejut bahawa bini kesayangan dia telah mengemas rumah persis org nak datang melawat. selalu mesti nak tunggu dia buat sama2, katanya. ok fine lain kali i'll wait :D
3. terlupa ada invitation openhouse on sunday. instead, p berdating dengan jayanya berdua. tengok surrogates. ok la, mcm sci-fi lain. tp ending dia membuatkan aku pk, 'huh, dah abis?'
balik umah mengadap pulak taking of pelham 123 sambil makan aunty anne's pretzels and vienna bagels (gila banyak makan!). pun dapat reaksi sama dari aku.
huh, dah abis?
tp denzel washington tetap hot di hatiku. saw screening of the book of eli, i want i want i want!!!
4. sangat kecewa sandal yg disukai hanya tinggal yg display, dan ada sedikit flaw yg menyebabkan hariz was against me taking it. sudahnya, malam2 mimpi2. sedih.

on mc again today. dunno if i'm gonna use my mc tomorrow.
maka sekarang berlingkar tgk g.i.joe utk kali kedua. not so bad. well a hot fella in an action movie is (almost) always interesting. n i couldnt believe its sienna miller until i watched she being a blondie part. and its the cute guy from third rock from the sun playing 'the commander'?!! besar dah budak tu.. cute! i've always been a fan of cartoons (still am) and g.i.joe didnt miss my attention. aku yg pelik sbb hariz tak ingat cne lagu katun g.i.joe tu, aku yg ingat hahaha (pls dgr kat youtube for the cartoon version) i've always wondered if they included the song in the movie. tp takde.
baru tgk the proposal during the weekend. sandra bullock is always a favourite in a comedy. sgt klakar. meleleh air mata aku sbb gelak masa scene she rapped lagu get low in the woods. that song used to be aired in hariz's car for quite some time when we're still dating!! brings back happy memories ^_^
nak sambung tgk cerita. karang nk p masak, hariz dah nak balik! :D later!

alas, my happiness last night was shortlived.
last night was my first attempt to make puding jagung. yg aku tak tahu menahu ingredient apa nak letak. main bantai saja agak-agak from what i tasted yg sgt sedap during makan-makan time uni.
bila google2 tak la banyak ingredients but it varies la from one recipe to another.n anyway, i couldnt trust the ratio in the recipes given sebab kekadang sesetengah org suka letak tepung kastad dengan banyaknya, which i didnt like. so in the end, aku main letak dan agak2 saja.
1 cup tepung custard, larutkan dlm 1 cup air
1 tin 400g susu cair
1 tin corn cream and 1/2 tin corn kernel
3/4 cup gula
1 tsp vanilla essence
garam skitttt saja
rupa sudah agak lawa (i.e., rupa puding laaaaaa, tak la rupa cam hareeeemmm). but in my haste dan cuakness disebabkan gatal pakai periuk nipis, dan letak atas burner besar (nama pun eksperimen) aku rasa aku masak tak cukup lama, sbb ada sedikit rasa tepung, dan apparently terlebih sedikit liquid, maka tak set cantik2.
i know. i'm one impatient woman.
maka, hari ni, breakfast: puding jagung tak siap.
tapiiiiii, taste wise sudah dapat thumbs up from 3 panelists (yg aku jamin perut kebal). hepi!!!

the SA was thorough enough to ask me hows my makeup regime and threw in some tips for my skin as she spotted me having uneven skintone between my Tzone and the rest of my face. her unforgettable saying:
'u should exfoliate more than once a week la sayang. tgk ni, foundation susah nak lekat. kulit dah cantik, tapi kena jaga juga.'
kantoi la pulakkkkk that week tu aku malas nya ya rabbi nak cuci muka pun, apatah lagi pakai exfoliant yg menyebabkan i have to double cleanse.
fyi i'm using ginvera marvel gel to exfoliate, puas ati dpt tgk kulit2 mati tu nmpk atas tangan kan. baru tau betapa byk benda mati atas muka hahaha.. the downside of this product is u have to really clean all the 'debris' yg bergentel2 tu smpai really squeaky clean, or else nnti jerawat naik. so after marvel gel, i have to use scrub to clean them. jadi dua keja la kan?
time2 aku rajin almost every other day buat (it can be used everday) so nampak la muka berseri2 skt, tapi kalo sindrom M melanda habis laaa..
ok so the SA swatched some foundation near my jaw for match and recommended Perfectly Real Foundation in shade 63 (Fresh Beige) as i wanted the sheerest of coverage since i dont really use foundation much.
i used it during raya to see how it fares throughout the day. the verdict?
colour selection: good match!
coverage: ok. if u want it sheer then fine, because it wont cover up freckles taik lalat whatsoever. if not, stay out of this range.
staying power: my blush stayed on well until the evening which i considered a success!
cons: it does have this weird smell that a lot of foundation has, but with clinique somehow the smell is quite prominent. luckily tak kuat sgt and dissipated after a while. another thing it seemed to cake a bit near the base of my nose, and a lot of reviews seem to have the same prob.
since the SA gave quite a bit more than a week's worth of foundation, it'll last quite a while with me. i havent had any foundation since my MAC, so lets see if i havent find anything more interesting than this! :D

pfffttt. all of us know kalo time bulan puasa and raya, mesti kena diarrhea 1-2 round. well, to me at least.
maka, semalam mc setelah asyik berulang kali keluar masuk toilet. plus muntah yang projection nya mcm air paip yg dipasang full blast.
well, no worries ladies. dah ok dah. at least as of now. i'll make sure i'm a whole lot better b4 farina's openhouse. karang kecik hati mek kalo aku tak p, kan kan kan?
'apalah gunanya openhouse di rumah aku, kalo takde anis dan hariz'. ahaks!
nampak sangat pemakan yang extra berjaya!
ok, on to more serious matters.
no raya pictures to show, since the only ones we had was masa pagi raya. tu pun yang skema ones, u know yg berdiri tegak beramai-ramai sambil senyum ke arah kamera. others, nada. sbb siang malam sibuk melayan org, and in between that, membuta untuk menambah tenaga sebelum org len dtg umah.
we were in trganu for a week, then i head to kedah alone while hariz came home in KD. dont blame him, blame the hospital. gila nakkkk jugak buat stock take time org nak beraya.
nnti cerita lagi ok. later!

benda paling seronok ialah dapat mkn dodol. tak main la dodol yg dah siap pack kecik2 cam pyramid tu ok, mesti mau yg lembik panas2 hot from the kuali. orgasmic gilaaaa!!!
my MIL, an avid dodol fan, even asked me to courier some to her. apparently dodol yg dijual panas2 tu susah nak jumpa, she said kat kedah saja dia jumpa, tmpat len takdak. i was like, oooo... no wonder the first time she asked me aku blur-blur, sbb kat sp mmg jual mcm tu, so aku tak paham bila dia tanya mana nak carik dodol yg baru masak panas2.
the best ones are those yg lembik gilaaaaa u have to scrape off the bits on ur fingers with ur teeth. ffuuuuhhh! lapar pulak. hehe.
tgh2 mkn dodol abah siap cerita, dulu masa kecik2 ada satu time tu lepas makan dodol, dia keluar main mercun. mercun lekat beb kat jari! cuak tak hengat punya. he couldnt remember what happened next, but i know for a fact he still has all his fingers on :)
abah aku mmg cmtu, byk kisah main mercun dia. hilang kening n bulu mata tu biasa jadik la..
n ppl wonder why my youngest brother sgt boisterous n naughty.

it was a known fact that my dream of all dreams is to be a housewife yg takde keje lain pegi shopping n spa-menyepa, which is sadly, i know, will forever be a dream.
i mean, gila ke hapa nak quit job (even though i never ever liked it, right from the time i was studying it). i'm still sane, thank you. but still, its all coming fast. extended hours, 24 hour services (which means working in shifts that i really couldnt ...) n this h1n1 thingy still 'sepak'ing my ass every bloody week, makes me long to live my dream.
still, a job is a job however u say it. i really envy those who really enjoy what they do to earn a living, bcoz i simply couldnt.
kesimpulannya, tensi esok kejaaaaaa!!!!!!
Wednesday, August 26, 2009
nothing. u juz seethe in silence, hoping it'll soon go away.
the fact that ur stomach made a scene after sahur didnt help one bit.
heartache, i'm telling u. heartache.
Sunday, August 23, 2009
actually i do know why. something did keep simmering in my mind, n i juz had to lose myself in books to get it off my head.
well on the bright side i didnt miss teman hariz for sahur this morning.
yeah, i dont usually eat, juz a mug of milo and sometimes kurma / roti / whatever's handy. it didnt start off right, with me sahur with panadol yesterday, but pagi tadi aku makan nasik pulak.
maybe its easier to swallow something spicy when u havent slept beforehand.
iftar semalam and sahur pagi ni menu yang sama. mixed white/brown rice with bawal sweet sour, telur dadar and sayur kangkung. oh, and some cekodok on the side. i cant seem to get it stuck in my head that its not good to mix binatang laut n darat in one meal.
susah la nak pk telur tu binatang. hmm..
hari ni malas masak. nak p intai kat ttdi's bazar apa nak makan for iftar. better be going early to avoid the crowd.

eventhough i'm not sick by the virus, but the virus is giving me headache. h1n1 i'm telling u, is not making anybody profit but the pharmaceutical companies. i think even those companies is getting headache to cope with the demands.
rainy season is coming soon = more ppl with flu = i shudder to think what will happen next.
rain, rain, go away,
come again another day,
little anis wants to play!!

that is precisely why i never finished watching maverick, n tonight, for the first time, baru nak tgk gladiator. but as i watched commodus smothering his father the caesar in his embrace, i think i know, i'll never finish watching it, as with maverick.
nothing, i mean nothing, can make me watch movies with sad endings till the end. especially if the storyline is all sad and soppy. call me a dreamer if u will, but i believe in happy endings.
the same thing goes with public enemy. masa tengok gazette dia teringin sangat nak tgk johnny depp pakai trench coat. but the minute i know he dies in the movie, CANCEL.
sentap la cmni. baik tengok kabhi kushi kabhi gham.

marwan: boring ah, org siap tidoq2
shuhada: i told you all my friends said tak best but i juz want to see it.
hariz: tu lah, ingat ke ada byk lawan2, last2 mati cmtu je??!!
as for me, here's what i think:
no doubt when the reviewers said its a filler, it is a filler. but then again if ur a harry potter fan u'd know that the story is like that albeit all the embellishment in the movie. i do know that, n juz went with the flow. its juz that its disappointing to see the climax turned out to be soo anticlimactic. i imagined a lot of emphasis would be on the fighting scene in hogwarts, as with the book. ni habok pun tarak. si dumbledore tu mati kering je last2.
n another thing that made me pissed was all the story about horcruxes. abis tunggang terbalik. dumbledore is a wise man, he's SUPPOSED to know. ni like, baru la sibuk nak tau. kesian la. nampak cam x bijak. not the dumbledore i came to know from the book.
the saver, i say, would be ron. kalo tak... hmm.. habis la..

dr kat umah lama aku punya common phrase when i walk in his room:
ya, ada apa cik siti?
mcm cerita ali baba bujang lapok pulak.
enough about my health woes. smlm dgn tak sedar diri x sihat telah p berjalan2 dgn adik2 dan juga suami. i have my sis and bro crashing our pad since uni diorg tutup for a week. menarik jugak jalan2 time weekday. jalan dalam shopping complex sgt luas. nak p mana pun senang.
tapi last2 kecewa, disebabkan snowfly dan hush puppies tgh sale. but since i juz got my fitflop i think its not wise to pool more of the house's dosh into investing lotsa shoes. but snowfly's boots were like OH EMM GEE sgt sedappppp pakai ok. n bukan senang snowlfy nak sale.
but u know me. beli la apa pun last2 pakai sandals jugak.
susah la nak carik pic but i think this resemble what i tried yesterday the most, minus a few inches of the heel and its not patent leather.

am recovering now, this month mmg record ah. dua kali mc, 3 kali p klinik. sometimes i wonder if i got this body secondhand, fragile la ya rabbi. migraine la, flu la. thats not counting a dry spell that hit my whole face so bad it itched, then flaked on me.
its like i dont recognise ME anymore. everythings alien now. dah la muka buat perangai, my lips on some days start to itch in the morning, then swell, reddens like mad n dry up.
i hate to say this but i might NEED another lipbalm!

baru balik rumah. hariz ada sunway tourney. 1st round menang, yeay!! isnin ada lagi. sampai umah, mandi2 pastu panaskan krispy kreme yg tak habis semlm. verdict baru: buleh tahan la kalo makan panas2. agaknya semlm tu dah sejuk kan, tu pasal la tak sedap. ceh alasan.
dah pack barang. off to sg petani in a bit. juz me and my oldest and bestest friend annurul. girls' only ya. seronok la hariz tu, jadi weekend bachelor. takpa la sekali sekala :)
balik sp yeay! balik sp yeay! durian durian 15kg!!! weeehhuuuu!!
ni lah padahnya kalo lepas keja asek p berdating x balik2 rumah sampai tengah malam. we did three things in a go yesterday:
1. went to visit ayah cu (hariz's great-uncle) in PPUM. i think PPUM did a great job feeding him, his face looked fuller than when we last saw him at his daughter (hariz's auntie, but about our age)'s wedding. since hariz puasa, we made our move juz before azan, siap dapat bekal. klakar, org sakit yg bagi bekal kat org melawat :)
2. we headed straight to midvalley for a movie date. org len sibuk nak tgk harry potter, dok ligan dia punya premier night, we juz went sashaying in dgn sorg pakai long sleeve shirt and pants, sorg lagi baju kurung batik and bought ice age 3 3D tics. nampak sgt baru balik keja.
my verdict for the movie, 4 thumbs up!! adding in new characters didnt crowd the movie, but rather enhanced it. awek scrat sangat sexy dengan ekor nampak fluffy gila bila di-3Dkan, buck yg gila pgg batu seketul kat telinga konon2 ckp kat tpon. peaches, anak manny dgn eli comel gilaaaa!!
3. while waiting for the movie, hariz iftar kat carl's jr. fries dia the best everrr!! dgn perut yg masih tamak we headed down to krispy kreme for our original glaze fix. betul la org kata, kat sini agak biasa ori glaze tu. i remembered the first time i tried it years before in jakarta, sinking my teeth into the donut, mmmmhhhhh..... orgasmic gilaaa!! n no, the one i tasted yesterday, nope, definitely not the same. dunno why though.
our verdict: 2 thumbs down. sedih. nampak gaya mmg kena p outside malaysia to have those glazed donuts
