hey peeps! how's your Qurban? mine was alhamdulillah..simple and nice.and it was relaxing too! but with toooo much beefs!! bleurghhh!! but it was my first time witnessing the Qurban without feeling fear but blessed. the ceremony was really beautiful (although a little bit freaked out looking at the blood) but i feel like SubhanAllah..sucha beautiful ceremony and peaceful. the pak haji who did the Qurban was really pro. it was less than a minute i guess. the cow was not struggling he/she was just succumb..but despite the view of the whole ceremony was quite frightful, but i was holding to one word "semoga dia menjadi saksi kita di akhirat nanti..." SubhanaAllah..
Daripada Aisyah r.a Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. telah bersabda yang bermaksud: "Tiada suatu amalan yang dilakukan oleh manusia pada Hari Raya Qurban, yang lebih dicintai Allah selain daripada menyembelih haiwan qurban. Sesungguhnya haiwan qurban itu pada hari kiamat kelak akan datang berserta dengan tanduk-tanduknya, bulu-bulunya dan kuku-kukunya, dan sesungguhnya sebelum darah qurban itu menyentuh tanah, ia (pahalanya) telah diterima disisi Allah, maka beruntunglah kamu semua dengan (pahala) qurban itu." (Riwayat al-Tarmuzi, Ibnu Majah dan al-Hakim)
and so the whole day for Qurban was spent with family and the ladies was assigned to cut the meat and distribute to the neighbors in kampung. the feeling of slicing the beef was really.. 'rare'. i'm not sure if you've cut a freshly slaughtered cow :P the beef felt warm against your touch. imagine 2 hours before, the cow was still breathing and the warm blood ran through it's veins. the feeling was..masyaAllah..'thrill' and awed. i managed to film a short video of the Qurban ceremony here it's only 21seconds till the cow stopped struggling.masyaAllah..
the next day was spent with close relatives in Pasir Mas and another rounds of beef with some nasi impit and keropok lekors.ahhh..the perks of being Kelantanese ;) we stayed in Kelantan for 3days.and another 2days in Cherating for a short vacayyyy!! after the tonnes of beef eating during hari raya..i think i am done with beefs! :P i had nasi berlauk almost everyday..and nasi dagang, nasi lemak.gosh! i am sooo toasted!
on the way to Cherating, we can see beautiful sights of coconut palms waving and swaying..we even stopped for some sata and kerepok lekor in Kemaman.it was no doubt yummmyyy!!
|face too excited cause having the carbs of her life.lol|

hey peeps.it's sunny sunday! and sunday is laundry day for me.and i love lazy sundays :) i get more time to spend with my family (i'm a weekend family woman.lol) i know i need to make full use of my weekends with my loved ones..as you all know that ten months from now..i will no longer spending time weekends waking up late on my 'haunted bed'. yep,my bad is really haunted..every time i put my head on the pillow..i will end up sleeping for 8hours straight.haha..no noise can wake me up.how deep sleep can that be?? my mom has a very superb taste in choosing comforters, pillows and mattresses.i'm blessed.my beds are all haunted that once u decide to 'just' lie down and watch the ceiling, you will end up taking long hours nap ;P
so i'm sure gonna miss that haunted bed.spacious room and yes,my privacy.i can ensure you,that! hehe..but getting married is not a bad idea.trust me.i can't give a preach on that for now,but i will let u know when the time comes :) so i'm adjusting to few things like..stretching every Ringgits i have. i have to pick every single detail of food going into my tummy (yes,calories/carbs control) i become really picky when deciding to buy groceries. there's so many things to do but so little money in my pocket. haha! sometimes,we (rashid and i ) were tested with great obstacles.sometimes,when we were about to stack our money..some incidents just keep on surfacing. we were just left with no choice but to chip out a bit of our savings.it's saddening but insyaAllah, Allah have great plans for us. for me, i do hope that every single kindness i do..will come back in a good way. i do pray sometimes when i was about to succumb to hardship,i will just be thankful as the obstacles are not greater than what ever we had. maybe it's just a pinch of salt. in every yummy life.
i am also adjusting to become a NO NO person.remember i told you back then, i was really bad at saying NO to things. but for now, i believe that i must be firm and steady with every decisions i make. if i keep on saying yeses and at the end, i was the one who will face the consequences..well i guess you just have to put on a straight face and say NO. that's it. i do pray to be as cold as i can be on that. but i just hope that some people will understand that the things that i do is for my own goodness.not them.so shoosshh scaryy and possessive people! :P work had been fine.alhamdulillah..it's been three years now..but I do hope that the choices that i made will keep my ducks in a row. i do want to pursue my second degree someday.insyaAllah..and i do have aims.butttt..it all has to line up..one duck after another ok :)
and so,lets laze for now.it's sunday..just stay in,drink coffee and laze around.. (^__^) much love xx

oh my oh my! i'm 45mins away from talking in public today.. (>___<) remember i told you i was taking over a friend's post recently..today,the usual work done by her..is gonna be done by me! and i am going to do a 30mins talk about our company's system. scarrryyy!! i mean,it's not like scary scary..kinda thing..more of nervous!! i have not been speaking in public for how many years now?? arrghkkk..i can hear my tummy screaminggg :P
wish me luck peeps! i hope i won't drown by the big podium (knowing my lil petite height.lol) and no,i don't wear heels at work so don't expect me to put on one! and i know i should at least eat something to calm me down right now.but i'm on my 'puasa ganti' day 12 today.and i think, if i choose to eat today..it will be worse.the more food u have in your body, the more you will feel like 'puking' or 'dispersing' ..oppps!ok2..i gotta go back to rehearsing.i hope everything will go well..bismillahirrahmanirrahim.. much love xx

hey peeps! how's everything? ;) i'm not lazy to blog or having a writer's block kinda thing..but i was preoccupied with work lately..i just took over a colleague's work because she has left our department to find a new place for work..(she must be soo stressed with work.. :( ) so since i'm taking over,everything is kinda pumped up at work and i barely have time to blog.no,i don't blog at work.but i blog when there's nothing to do.haha! so,looking at the calendar..i realized...it's already 15th of October? that's like another 2 weeks to end of October? can you believe it??
i'm not yet in the bride to be mode.yet.but i have started browsing some magazines. just for ideas.i am so confused and gosh! there's so many beautiful dais i tell you! i am over the moon just by looking at it! sheeshh!! but i'm not making any decisions yet.encik is yet to decide on anything which is good.for me.because i am lost and confused myself.lol.but we already found the photographer and videographer for our wedding,insyaAllah..if everything goes well :) not jinxing it just yet.and the hall is booked actually,because in TTDI, the hall is like pisang panas! you hafta book like a year ahead! yes. A YEAR! :P pfftt! so at least these three things are most important for me :P but the dresses..hmm nikah dress sent. :D (cepat kan?? haha) so i am left with decorations for the halls,dresses and just the hantaran design etc.of course the rest like doorgifts, family dress etc..but that can be done later :)
i'm not gonna stuffed my head with stressful thoughts for the wedding preps yet.it's not like 2months away..so i'm chilling a bit..but once 2013 emerge..i will start to be in 4th gear, at least :P i'm not gonna turn my blog into a bridezilla or bride to be blog.don't worry.it may be the last thing i wanna talk about.i prefer my blog to be just about anything happened lately according to...my iphone? haha i remembered back then, when i was 18 (yes,i started blog when I was 18) i love to write.i have 5 diaries! and yes,diaries are more of who's your crush.what made u cry or things that are kept to yourself.but i started to write when i feel like telling people what my mind want to speak. i'm not a good writer,though.i just feel like sharing with people what's new place to go,where's the hype place to get a nice cozy drinks and food. where to hang out with friends,family and loved ones. where i went,how's raya,how's life yada yada yada..so yeah,don't let me spoil your mood to read about crappy things ok.. (i'm not a celebrity anyways) maybe just a way to keep long distance friends in UK,US,Japan,Indonesia,Holland and Barcelona close to me :P i miss them, the least i can do is to let them know i'm still living and kicking ♥ so..don't give up reading.i'm still here..just need to tune in with the new schedule ;) have a nice day peeps! much love xx

lately fashionistas are busy with color blocking which i am yet to understand what and how was it to put the color blocking on me without ending up becoming a paddle pop ice cream.lol.
so recently i am doing a sugar block diet.and nope.it doesn't work.LOL.cos i will always find my way to at least one or two pieces of those hershey's kisses (now i've finished it all..pfftt!) so i am trying to do the atkins diet.pfft! atkins what?? well my dietitian told me that i need to do a sugarblock diet. which means, no sugar.no potatoes.no rice.or anything to do with carbs.so the first 4 days last week, i made it! alhamdulillah..but i bailed on weekend.just to reward myself with some nice food :P
but i did cut down on my rice though.from 15times a week.to twice a week.haha.gila drastik kan? but no,it's not easy. (i can't help but salute Raimi.cos he's like the low carb/no carb guru!) so i just got started this sugar roadblocking.but i prefer to just take it slow.cut down on my carbs.mostly rice.and i narrow it to 'at least' 20g of carbs per day. (just like atkins diet) but oh boy!i think it's kinda torturing me (no,actually its not torturing..it's just that i am pure MALAY that can't live without rice.lol) but alhamdulillah..i made it through.it's just that i'm out of ideas to make varieties of meals.i was down to omelette and sausages.and sautee veggies.and fish fillet (tofu), and back to omelette and sausages, sautee veggies.and fish fillet.HAHA! seriously..i need to learn more recipes on these low carb diet.
but if i was to eat on malay meals,i choose just the meat and veggies.it's easier that way.but me and veggies are NO BFF.i do and i can eat veggies..but i will go like this..i think if i'm a small kid, i will making faces like it's the end of freedom.LOL
i scooped like a huge portion of spinaches,and after a while..(let say 10minutes,i feel like puking.hahaha) that is how bad my relationship with veggies are.but,brocolli and asparagus in oyster sauce is fine with me.just don't make me eat it like every seconds of the day.i might die,green!i can eat them,but i am not a big fan.sorry.haha..
so,after going for two weeks (it's my week two..day 8) i'm out of ideas.so i go for KFC.no skins.as long as it's still in the range of my calories intake per day :P i don't want to get myself to drastic with this diet.just to goof around a bit..and see how it goes for me (i'm a foodie by the way) i'm still 11 months away.but i do like this low carb diet.it makes me lighter,but i tend to become hungry every 3hours.haha..so just stocked up some Nuts & Honey Oatmeal biscuits and i'm good to go! insyaAllah ;) ..wish me me luck! ;) have a nice day! ♥ much love xx
