- The use of kata ganda in Bahasa Malaysia (see subject line above). Guna ke tak guna sekarang? I feel so outdated hokesss...
- People who refuse to be tolerant towards workmates. Do note that we're (you're) not always right. And no, we don't find princessy attitude (read: selfish me me me) favourable.
- The workings of permed hair. I got a perm job a moth ago and now it's arrow straight sans da curl spray-volumising cream-sculpting lotion combo.
- Why my muscles still hurt after that RPM class. Hello, it's not like I've never cycled in my life.
- Why I keep forgetting that the last time I went cycling was 10 years ago.
- My insatiable habit to spend, spend, spend. Happy - spend. Emo - spend. Tak hepi dan tak emo pun - spend.
- The need to dwell on petty issues. I do it, you do it, everybody does. But why do we do it la?
- Malaysian public transports. Convenient only if you stay within 10 mins walking distance to the LRT station. Else, bas tak boleh harap. Komuter pun just as bad with the unreliable schedule. Dan orang Malaysia suka tolak-menolak dalam train. Dan suka berdiri dekat pintu and never make way for others when the train stops. Oi kawan, orang lain mau turun naik la. And it's expensive ya. How I envy the Europeans. Even their single trip tickets are cheap. Passes for multiple trips lagi la murah. [Luahan hati of a car-less lady.]
- Kenapa saya tak rasa tua sangat. I'm like, OLD old. But I still feel da very da youthful (hah!). Reality hits hard when all shop assistants start calling me 'Kak'. And this stupid SMIDEC officer called me 'Puan'. Incik, do I LOOK MARRIED to you? My ring finger is still 'vacant' ok?
- Menu yang mengelirukan seperti berikut:
Pok Piah No Pork? Hawww...mak konfius. Hehe.
WHy can't I find a decent Laksa Sarawak in KL? WHY? WHY? WHY? Huaaaaaaa.....
No, I didn't have this at the restaurant in Pic 1 above (mak tak sanggup!). This is Barrett's Laksa. Tiang's Cafe at the Bormill, Kuching.
Best. Sangat. *drool*

I just got back from attending a forum on innovation and the way forward for the industry. excellent speakers from the private sectors but same old same old from the public sector. no offence to anyone and i'm certainly not going to blog about the content of the forum. although, someone from the boston consulting group is now the object of my envy (man, i wanna be this girl). and oh, ever notice how some peeps really like to take photos of speakers at events? I mean, i get it if they're snapshots of the presentation slides but of the speakers...? wonder if them pics go into da reports (yes boss i went to the boring seminar u forced me to attend and as a proof of me not playing hookie here's a snapshot of the speaker(s) in slot 1,2, 3 and 4.)
i almost skipped the afternoon session but something held me back and yep, i stayed on till da forum ended. As I was about to leave the venue suddenly i saw a very familiar face just a few yards away and i was like, Oh My God....
...jeng jeng jeng, it was a good friend from my uni days whom i haven't seen for 4 1/2 years! Fine, not a celebrity or anyone famous but it's so nice to have met him after all these years and to catch up. Well, i didn't expect to ever gonna see him again. Having gone to Oxford for his doctorate I had thought he would be bought over from his sponsors by some mega bio company and stays abroad for indefinitely. I'm sure he received offers but he came back and is serving the country. That's what you call a 'national'. And he's the same old guy, very humble, and it looks like his colleagues love him to bits just like all of us did in uni. Dr. Teh Oooi Kock is the same Mr. Teh we all knew in our retro years. *terharu*
Some peeps just aren't like that. Gosh how i hate those i'm-foreign uni-certified-and-you're-not-therefore-i'm better-off peeps. Yeah yeah this may sound very juve of moi but this breed still exists and 'all grown up' is not checked off on their list yet. Oh yeah, their cousins would be those in MNCs or are some 'selected bunch of public servants' (you know what i mean) who make faces when u tell them that u work for a small local company. You meet them everywhere. Sigh...world peace and unity is definitely a far-fetched goal in humankind.
Back to discussing on work-related stuff, i wanna share with u the following jotting i meant to put up online earlier (i kinda passed out immediately after shower last night. must be an effect of that low-fat lunch regime, yikes!). My work requires me to do a lot of research on everything, and translate them to useful stuff for business proposals. As i was perusing the Net to get some insights on Ruby on Rails I stumbled upon this comment on a blog which I find very cute and funny ha-ha:
"I started reading Damian Conway's book on object oriented Perl a few years ago and it made my head hurt so badly that I gave up."
That's it. A good statement for me to quote in justifying my decision to have left the programming hell for good. A lot of people have passed judgements when i told them that i have a BSc in Computer Science, grrrrrr.....
So people, be nice to everyone. We're all entitled to feeling superior over others, but try to be mean only to those who snub us. Hello, i'm not exactly a saint so i have a tendency to retaliate when offended okay....? huhu.

Gruesome day at work. Last minute major assigment. Expect non-holiday tomorrow. Plus, I think someone's a bit pissed that I was called back to the office from 'station X'. And guess what, Mr Boss knows my blog. Crap. Uhhh biarlah. (If you're reading this, well, hello Boss!)
Happy Deepavali to all. Oh, gua kena kerja hari ni. Kerja yang banyak. *sob sob*

rumah belum habis kemas.
baju raya belum collect kat tailor.
bos bagi balik pukul 4 tapi saya dah stop buat keja. eeeiii..malas.
hari gelap. ada harapan hujan lebat kejap lagi.
macam mana nak pergi kat tailor? nak park kereta kat mana pun tak tau sebab itu bukan territory saya. iyelah, pertama complex. tempat orang old skool macam encik scarlet kingsnake (ahah, jgn marah bro). saya muda. saya tak biasa. sebab bukannya the curve ke kan. heheh.
oh, semalam saya dapat duit raya. terima kasih
selamat hari raya aidilfitri people. if at any time my jottings have offended you, ampun dan maaf zahir dan batin :)
i'll be on the road on raya II. bah! kalau naik flight 8 jam macam tu dah nak sampai europe dah sikit lagi. eh, south africa kot. eh tah lah. tak mau cakap pasal europe ke tempat jauh2. tak ada duit sudah nak gi vacation lepas ni. huhuhu...
**Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri**

Lunchtime saya pergi bayar bill telefon yang dah overdue 2 hari. i must control my yakking habit dengan sesiapa sahaja yang saya boleh mengekol. (memang dari kecik say suka bersembang tepon. tak tau la gene mana ni. maybe i have mutated genes. maybe it's the ubat nyamuk that i 'devoured' on when i was still a baby. intoxicated. hoh.). Dah la beratur lama kat maxis tu. selalu macam tu. they should have an auto kiosk where you just key in your phone num and deposit your pay. saves the time to repeat your num to the service person multi-times.
Lepas phone bill episode habis, i 'embarked' on a journey to hunt for kasut raya. for the umpteenth time. sudah sebulan kita berpuasa, tapi pencarian kasut raya saya masih belum selesai. nothing triggers my fancy so far. i want wedges. somehow i think i should get a vertical upgrade this year. i know they're very spring/summer and it's fall now but 'do i look like i care?'. you see, i have narrow feet and most of the time they aren't wedges-friendly. and i want slip-on wedges, not slingbacks. tetapi di marie-claire spanish collection di Bata (ohoh, sungguh ole skool) ada sling-back wedges yg sangat delish in brown leather. i didn't wanna get them at first because of the price. so back to my shoe-hunting cherita. pergi sana, pergi sini semua tak minat. masuk pretty fit. oh, ada jugak la yg saya minat. 'hi, do you have these in size 37?'. 'sorry miss, sudah habis'. masuk lewre, 'size 37 please.' yesss, ada! oh, oh, oh kaki saya sgt hodoh dlm wedges ini. jari jari kaki yang panjang terjuloq keluar kat depan sangatlah hodoh. ooohh, how about this other design? damn comfy, sangat best. and on half price! 37? 'Sorry kak, dah habis. cuba tengok kat metrojaya'. so i walked to the other end of the mall looking for my perfect fit shoes. haha, guess wot? tak ada! saya berasa saya nak beli yang kat marie-claire tu. biar lah slingbacks pun, dia chantek. dan saya akan menjadi tinggi. nyammm. (berperasaan sangat superior drp nazli dan nypd haha)
Haih...saya frust. dah la demam. ok maybe belum demam, a bit 'ekzejeret' there. no shoes. ugghh. and to top it off, i actually also do not have a beg raya. haruskah berjalan 5 minit ke The Gardens dan membeli beg kecil brand *tutttttt yang sgt ridiculous harganya itu? sebenarnya tidak harus but no shoes no purse equals to 'NO RIANG RIA DI HARI RAYA'. camney tok?
Mira has new shoes, new lippie, and a brand spankin' new mini-monogram speedy! all for raya, aggghhhh...jeles yang amat sangat. (babe, saya ini adalah sangat sedih)

anda suka ini template? very serene kan? compared to my old template lah which was very broody and 'mandom'...
in approx 8 days, 'mira nadia binti mohd shawal' will be born. congratulations to fied and wale for the upcoming latest addition to the family. kalau nama ni korang amik aku dgn mira bagi duit raya lebih, ngehngehngeh...(saya adalah sangat hepi sebab nak dapat god daughter yeay!)

with good companion
with a good companion
who has always been there
heartache, pain, misery...
the good times
the security i could feel in his arms
the bond shared all through the years
through difficult times
and through the times
i was being very difficult
but i took my heart
and turned the other way
now succumbing to my own defeat
for i'm longing for
the good food
the good companion
the good times

miss my goat's cheese but im not exactly running to get bits of what's
left. Maybe if i have some nice saltines to go with it there would be

it's kinda a pleasure to be working. Frap, muffin, macchiato, and a
loved one sitting next to moi. Him on his notebook (digital), moi on
mine (V-analog, the paper-n-pen kind), Paul Mccartney on the speakers.
And lotsa quiet smiling moments. Bliss? You bet ;-)

But the crowd was shitty. Kanye was givin' me my money's worth. RM123
well spent. Cant understand why these peeps just watched, or shall i
say, STARED, at the stage??? Only the 2 girls in front of moi were
genuinely enjoying demselves. Fine, they're kinda annoying pre kanye
but they actually saved moi frm having a sordid concert episode.
If only i'm 5 years younger, i would've dashed off to da standing
arena where the kids were having a blast. Drats! Note to mind: please
also make sure that the next concert partner is somebody who actually
'gets' the meaning of 'concert' and 'dance' and 'fun'.
KW, you're the best.

Mengartikan dirimu di dalam hatiku
Betapa ku sesali adanya dirimu
Haruskah ku bertahan demi cinta ini
Yang tak mungkin
Andaikan saja ada keteguhan hati
Tuk membuka kembali jalan cinta ini
Biarkan ku menanti semua janji kita
Sampai batas waktu mengakhiri
Dan tak mungkin untuk kita bersama
Di atas perbedaan yang slamanya mengingkari
Dan tak mungkin bila ku melepasmu
Sungguh hati tak mampu
Dan tak mungkin
Semestinya tak ada yang memisahkan cinta ini
Karna hanya dirimu satu cintaku

You peeps must think i've gone cuckoos for putting up another post here. Fact is, i am a little pening in the head. i did a test on Tickle. "Someone" forwarded to me lah, of course. Quite challenging, the questions.
Ironically, i aced the test. Here's what the MENSA brains at Tickle resolved for my state of currently unsound mind:
Nadia, you're fit to commit because you've met the right person
Sure, you've been in love before, but it looks like you've really found a match in this one. You've probably been around the block a few times, and you know exactly what's out there. Whether you've had a few heartbreaks or some dating disasters, you know a keeper when you find it.
You're a fun and energetic catch yourself, and you know that the secret to a great relationship is good communication and good times. An honest soul, you believe in lasting love and making things work. Keep up the good work!

It was the moon that stole my slumber
Across the night
I fell in love with people sleeping
I don't mean to make you cry
But this feeling will run right through the night
And I'll only make you cry with these feelings
Never seen the sunshine
From higher points than sunrise
I don't wanna be lonely
I just wanna be alone
I'm not, not sure,
Not too sure how it feels
To handle everyday
Like the one that just past
In the crowds of all the people
(You said) I've no respect for you
And I miss you love
And I miss us love

Rooster (1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005)
The Rooster fares better this year with lucky stars flying into their chart. There is wealth luck indicated, but most of this luck will be tied to connections you make over the course of the year. This is a period of renewal for the Rooster, who emerges after a rocky year stronger and readier than ever to make good things that had to be put on hold. This is a great year for the Rooster to improve their skills or go back to school for additional qualifications. There will be love distractions at work.

anywayssss, if you happen to be one of those folks like moi who check out frens' blogs and the comments of each entry, then perhaps you will have read one of the comments in my last. i really feel like rolling about on the floor, laughing and abusing my tear ducts like a YM emoticon. kelakar ok, this person obviously checked out my friendster profile, saw my shout out of the week, got really upset (why, i'm not sure..hehehe), and didn't know how to convey his/her pent-up anger at moi when he/she suddenly remembered, "ahah, this adiepot has a blog!", and has used this oppo to channel out his/her sincere feelings to moi. sigh...kesian. he/she had to go through all the trouble to let me know that i have that pull factor on him/her. thank you darling, i'm flattered, hihihi.... (FYI, i'm still giggling as i type this entry. hihihihihihiiiiiiii....)
ok lah, what i had for my frenster shout out was this:
I have nothing against peeps who study abroad. i've got a pool of best friends who studied, still studying and professionally working in foreign countries yet they're all amazing humble people (u know who u are babes!). i wrote that because i read something somewhere la, that ada la this person ni whom has a liking to 'teach' stuff to people as though people don't read, don't travel, don't surf da Net, don't watch discovery channel/travel/animal planet/berita/etc etc, etc... Yeah, i've always had a grudge on peeps who parade around with a "better-than-thou' attitude. And i've seen this person doing it many, many times before. And i guess i too, let it go to my head last week hence that emotional shout out. Didn't know la got somebody else will get very emo-core because of it hihihi....
in summary, i'm AMUSED by his/her determination to "talk" to moi. the drive, oh my...go, go, go! hehehe...
speaking of being amused, MUSE is coming to town! so people, if you can make yourself available on Feb 25th let's chill out to some brit rock! Oh, hopefully there won't be any "fashion muse" attending the gig. they're pretty, they're rich, and they're just gonna be there prancing around in punk-ish get-ups from their designer friends. gag! (eh, eh, emo la pulak)
M says i'm too old for MUSE, so what? jealous ke sayang? i like their music. funny, i hate Coldplay but MUSE gets to moi. I missed the 30% discount promo but Enddee seems to have offered me some free tix, no? hahaha....you are definitely givin' 'em to moi bro.
MUSE on Feb 25th, Stadium Negara

- i will constantly remind you that you have to. oh sudah tentu....
- it won't be cool to share wif other people when u are married. u only share wif your husband lah of coz. and married people always give nice pressies dont they? *wink wink
- when u share wif your husband, your husband pays, which practically means you can demand for whatever u want to buy for your bestest best fren (this would be moi).
- or at least, very likely you'll earn beribu-ribu lemon already by that time. a gempak-est gift will not scratch your gucci purses the slightest bit.
- i will also remind you time and again that you have left me all cold and alone by choosing to get married first, which will make you very much laden with guilt, and the gempak-est gift is an offering to moi untuk menebus rasa bersalah anda hahahaha!
- single and looking
- single but not looking
- in a relationship and getting married soon
- in a relationship but not getting married anytime soon and very comfortable with this arrangement so please stop asking them the KBL
This, in itself, will be a great conversation guideline, no?
Anyhow, i'm not all bitter and grumpy lah... So to all of my babes who will take the plunge soon, i wish you congratulations and semoga berkekalan ke anak cucu y'all! Married or not, you guys will always be the best friends anyone could have :)

One must not be the slightest bit jealous of one's mate. It is EXTREMELY against the the 10 Commandments of Eternal Friendship. More so if it's someone whom one has known for many...many years.

'twas my job to minute all the yapping,
It started out very much confusing,
but half-way through didnt't look like it was ending.
What fun can a girl have in the middle of this
when All she wanted to do was doodling,
Cause one of the guys was talking-cum-a-spitting!
- by adiepot ketepot
That's moi all confused and the know-it-all guy who talked non-stop getting on the nerves of everybody. Okay, so there were actually more than 2 people at the meeting. But I can only draw on Paint and it's not so fun using a mouse, eh? Let's pretend that everybody else is also in the picture that i drew :D
