.a lil bead crazy. (manik bersilang)

You have no idea how much time I spend staring and standing in front of all the beads in one of the beads shops in town until the salesgirl whispered loudly to her friend; 'cuba kau layan dulu customer baju merah ni' and she's gone minute later.  And nobody entertained me after that. Oh, so much for budi bahasa budaya kita.  Sobs.  But it's alright coz I love to do the beads-browsing alone.  Like you know, it feels so awkward if somebody acting so much like a digi-i-will-follow-you; following every single step you make. Ehe.

So I went home with all the beads I need. See, the staring is worth it ok, salesgirl. Eh?

Then I tried to mix and match all the beads I bought.  And tadaaa....  

Not as tidy and pretty as the one I saw in google tho.   But there's no harm in trying kan. ;)

.lagu berjuara.

AJL.  Sudah masuk yang ke-28.  Tak sangka.  Kali terakhir tengok AJL masa umur 17 tahun.  Itu pun tengok sampai pukul 10 lebih.  Sebab biological clock cakap pukul 10 harus tidur.ehe.

Satu-satunya AJL yang tengok sampai habis adalah pada tahun 1998 (ya ampun skemanya ayat).  Tak tau macam mana boleh bertahan sampai lewat malam. Minum kopi lima cawan kali.

Selepas 17 tahun, masuk maktab dan university, eh tiba-tiba tak tahu AJL tu berdiri untuk apa (baca: stands for what). Ceh. Padahal tak ada tv dan malas tengok atas talian (baca: online). 

Teringat, masa Aizat menang tahun lalu.  Ramai yang menghebahkan cerita yang Aizat sangat cool pegang mug nyanyi lagu Yuna.  Cuba mencarinya di Youtube.  Cis. Lagu 'terukir di bintang tak mungkin hilang...' Sebab saya tak suka lagu itu saya tak jadi menikmati ke-cool-an Aizat pegang mug.(alaa mug ja pun) 

Malam ini, saya mengulangi sejarah tahun 1998. Itu pun sebab tertidur pukul 8 dan terbangun pukul 9 lebih.  Baru perasan irama traditional, balada dan pop rock sudah tiada bah kan? Iya. Ketinggalan zaman. Biar.

Tapi heels yang di pakai Jac sangat cantik.

p/s: Oh, such an abrupt ending.  Coz it's 1 am.  and I'm not a 'night owl'. Time to sleep everyone. Kroih kroih

.say sawi to pm.

This kangkung-thingy is kinda overrated (especially on fb). Move on people.  It's not like the pm is gonna cancel the price hike just because you threaten and intimidate him with your never ending kangkung story. 

On the Authority of Abu Hurairah, the Messenger of Allah said,
"Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak good things or keep silent." 
(HR Bukhari dan Muslim)
So if we think that our kangkung-post is not relevant or involved more emotional than intellectual thought, then perhaps we better keep quiet.
p/s: The funniest kangkung joke so far: "This kangkung obsession is fast becoming a laughing stalk. I predict a celery increase soon.  But the government doesn't carrot all.  Lettuce get to the root of the problem. We have mushroom for improvement." (a compilation of Harith Iskander's twit.hihi)
Eyp rama.  This is not relevant at all! Ok. Keep quiet. Keep quiet.

.hold my hands.

Send someone to love me
I need to rest in arms
Keep me safe from harm
In pouring rain

I dunno, I keep on humming this song today.
And the only person I can think of is you

Remember that one night, I sneaked into your room.  It was midnight.   Thank God, you were still awake while your roommates was sleeping.  You asked me 'Why?' and I had nothing to say but cried in you arms; your comfy-fluffy arms as you used to call it. You said 'No worries.  Everything will get better in time.'

3 years later.  Once again I sneaked into your room.  You asked 'Is everything ok?' I said nothing but cried. In your arms.  Again. It felt so warmth and tender I wish I could rest in your arms forever. 'No worries. If the decision you've made bring you closer to Him, then worry not.' Ah, you are getting wiser in giving advices.  No wonder everybody loves you.

I thank Allah many times for sending you and each one of you girls to me.  That sisterly hugs.  That tender arms.  That joy and happiness. *smile. Hope everyone is doing good despite all the resentment that we are facing now.

p/s: It's raining outside. and I miss everyone so bad.

.the kindergarten days.

My nephew's second week at kindergarten: 

'Hari ni abang buat apa di sekolah?'
'Teacher suruh kaler apa?'
'Apple. Teacher suruh kaler red.  Abang tak mahu. Abang mahu kaler hijau.'
'Eh mana boleh camtu. Jadi teacher bagi ka kaler hijau?'
'Tidak. Jadi abang tak mau buat.'

He loves green. Nanti besar kita tau sudah dia pangkah mana satu masa PRU. ehe

'Abang nangis ka di sekolah hari ni?'
'Kenapa abang nangis? Teacher marah?'
'Tidak. Kawan abang nangis.'
'Abang pun nangis la.'

Every day he provides me with different stories. Most of his stories required me to use KBKK a lot. lol

.the basketball story.

Malam tu,
Bintang tak ada.
Balik dari library, ketuk pintu bilik sambil senyum.
ajak mereka main basketball
10 malam!
tak sangka mereka ikut. (*senyum)
main dengan semangat.
ketawa sana sini.
lepas main, eh, tiba-tiba emo
menangis tumbuk tiang basketball.
supaya nampak matang, konon.
kumpul satu bulatan,
mereka dengar cerita sedih.
satu-satu muka berkerut
satu-satu bagi nasihat
satu-satu bagi pinjam bahu

That was the basketball story from MY point of view.
When I heard the same story from dib and iylia, lol! I can't believe it's totally the other way round! :

Malam tu,
semua sudah kami buat,
Basuh muka, cuci kaki, pakai lotion tangan dan kaki,
Tinggal tidur ja.
Tetiba kau masuk bilik.
muka miserable gila ajak main basket.
10 malam!
tapi sebab muka miserable tu, kami ikut main.
walaupun badan melekit-lekit,
akibat lotion dan peluh menjadi sebati,
kami tetap main dengan penuh semangat,
lepas main, eh, tiba-tiba nangis.
kau nangis macam drama tv.
bole menang Oscar.
paha kami kau tumbuk. Lebam-lebam.
semua tahan sakit
tapi tak apa.
kau kan kawan.

Hahaha. Now, I can laugh about it. Silly me. No wonder muka berkerut-kerut.  Ingatkan tumbuk tiang, rupanya tumbuk kawan. Ampun.

Maka, dengan ini saya ingin meminta maaf kepada kawan-kawan yang terlibat dalam basketball 10 malam, dua tahun lalu. =)

.dress like a princess.

I had promised myself not to look at their page again. Not until I've got enough money to buy at least a piece for each colour (eh, over).  But, God! The temptation is too high. Too high until I can't even stop myself from scrolling their page and imagining how perfectly beautiful we can be if we could manage to grab one.  Somehow, I think I'm willing to be the model just so I could wear the dress for free. Oii patheticnya ya Tuhan.

Since most brides opt for pastel colours for nikah, I think this is perfect for the event:

and this dusty pink dress for reception:

and for dinner, I think this glorious maroon will look nice too:

 and if you want to look more elegant, this stunning black might be a little bit of help.

This is for tea party or casual look. The colour will bring the sweetness in you. =)

For those who don't really favour white, may be you can step out of your comfort zone for a while and try this white-y dress for your big day. You will surely look stunning!  White dress and red roses, such a perfect combo!

Oh, was definitely love at first sight when I saw these dresses on fb.

I think the setting helps to light up the dress.  The stairs and the dresses are too perfect together. Imagine, running down the stairs with your flow-y dress swifts nicely in every step you take.  And with a pair of delicate glass shoes to complete your look, you pretend to fall and left one shoe just so the prince could have the other pair. Then he would find you no matter where you are coz you are 'the girl in a flowy dress and a glass shoe'.  Tsk. Too imaginative.  Too Cinderella-ish. Ok stop.

Btw, for those of you who have money but still wondering how to use it, may be you can visit this link and buy the dress to cheer you up. Hoho.

p/s:  I'm positive that it's all because of the model, the dress has nothing to do with it.  If she's not adorable, do you think people will buy it? (ayat kasi sedap hati bai!)
