Day 31 - Why do you blog?

My answer would be...

*Saja suka-suka!*

It's great to be able to get acquainted with other bloggers, sharing life-stories, exchange opinions, tips, travel info, places, etc.
The best part is when any of the blogger-friends turn out to be one of your close sisters! Bonus!! *wink*

Alhamdulillah... successfully completed my 30 Days Blog Challenge 
eventho I had revised some topics! Hihihihhi...

Few stories of what happening this month to be updated next...

Day 20 – Difficult time in your life

Growing up without daddy since 10yo. Somehow, I personally think that we are ok with it.  The difficult part of it, of coz mom has to work hard to raise us without any financial support from dad. Kalau tgh bulan habis beras, habis gas, mmg sgt menyedihkan! Berapa sgt la gaji promoter kan?! Eventually, three of us (mom, me and bro) live happily. Mom must be very proud of herself! And I’m very proud of her too!

First year without daddy
To be diagnosed with BC is indeed a nightmare! It leaves me no choice but to complete treatments as suggested by doctor. Luckily my company is taking care of all the medical expenses. If it’s not, I don’t think I’ll be ‘happily’ completed my treatments. Well, at least I don’t have to think much bout the bills rite?!

during chemo

Marriage. Difficult? Honestly, yup! LOL To be honest, many things had happened in these 6 years. Anyway, every relationship will encounter thick and thin, high and low moments. So yaa… I just go with the flow. Pray everything will be alright and that we will be celebrating wedversary for many more years. Amin.  It was not easy to be together, hence we can't easily give up!

Day 17 – Most Proud Moments

Conquered Mt Kinabalu 

My mom and aunt were surprised, worried and hesitated when I told them I want join the climb. They knew that I’m not an active and tough kinda person. I don’t get myself involved in outdoor activities. But, Mt Kinabalu is different case! Hahahaha.. 

Baru perasan.. sama saja tu baju! Pakai balik!! Hahahahah

Without fully prepared, no exercise, no nothing, in fact I just came back from Labuan few days before the climb, yet my strong determination had pushed me to continue my journey no matter how hard it is. Only 3 out of 10 of us managed to be there, the summit of Mt Kinabalu. 

I came down and went home dengan bangganya! Semua tidak picaya! But, I made it and I made it again the following year! 3rd time?? Hmmm… 

Convocation in 2002 

Not only myself, but I know my mom too! She was soo excited that she spent RM200++ for her attire to be worn during my convocation. She also ‘upgraded’ her dentures which she did it at the private clinic. Cost her RM1k++ for two sets dentures. I know it’s a big amount to her. Yet dia tutup mata saja! She really, really wants to look great on my convocation day. Love you mommy! 

Completed BC treatments 

It was not easy but I made it! Life goes on... in fact, it’s like 2nd life-chance to me that I wanna use it to the fullest. I began see things differently. I began appreciate things more. 

They are my life!
To all CA patients especially to CathJ and another colleague of mine who has diagnosed with BC and undergone mastectomy on last Thursday, stay strong, stay positive, believe in God, keep on fighting.. take care.. *hugs*

Day 16 – On top of your bucket list

For long term, I want to clear all debts. Debts lagi???!!! Adoiiiii…

For extra-short term (next month perhaps! hehehehe), need to invest on :

1. 2nd hp. Just a cheap one for ‘emergency’. The disadvantage of using Blackberry is that u can’t insert other simcard to the device! *sigh* 

Apa kata beli hp ni? hehehehe

2. Powerbank

For medium-short term (ada ka ni term?!),

Soo looking forward for my TWO trips in coming May. *wink* 

Till then, happy weekend ppl!

Saving for kids’ education. So they can say no to PTPTN!

Business - actual shop!

Charity - donation to breast cancer association, cleft lip and palate association, etc

Day 13 - Early Memories

I tot I wanna skip and revise this topic. But then, I managed to recall some memories after reading Mia's lipan story. hehehehe...

So here you goes, some of my early (mau ckp earliest tu tidak la!) memories in random.. 

Lovebite by lintah!!! Can't really recall when was the incident. But it should be before i was 9yo. Budak bandar masuk sawah.... suka la c lintah! Bila nampak ada benda hitam di kaki, wahhh nangis2 and jerit2 panggil 'maaaaaaaaaammmmyyyyyy'!! I think that should be my last time playing at the paddy field! Sadis!

Loving my dad's kampung at Tenom. Mom said we went back to dad's kampung by train few times when I was still toddler. But my last memory at Tenom was when I went back there for the last time before dad left us. I still remember we have to park our car far outside the kampung. Kereta tidak dapat masuk. Jalan tidak la jauh betul. Tapi kena reda sungai berbatu2. Rumah kampung beratap daun nipah dan berdindingkan bulu. Jari kaki terluka sbb tepijak bhgn lantai yg bulu tajam. Masih ingat rasa pedih tu luka bila mandi di sungai. Tapi mandi-manda di sungai mmg best! Ada 'kolam' semulajadi. Ada air terjun mini dari bukit. Jarang dpt mandi sungai sbb kampung my mom tiada sungai! huhuhuh...

The only kindie photo I have!

Broke my arm at home sebab buat aktiviti lompat c katak lompat yg extreme! Sempat kena tempiling/pelempang dari my dad before he sent me to the hospital. Due to warded for almost 1 mth at the hospital, I was not able to attend my kindie graduation day! Maka, tiada la gambar saya pakai tupi time kindie!! Wuarghhhh...

Keberatan beg!! Hahahah

Took 'MC' from school with the intention to avoid my dad from noticing my wounded elbow! Gara-gara Tejatuh time main! LOL

I guess that's all la.. Kalau tidak, lagi banyak ingatan2 yg 'menyedihkan'... Hmmm...

Day 9 – Worst Habits

Low self-esteem. No confident! – perangai ka ni???
I hate public speaking the most. I hate mic. I hate when ppl looking/staring at me.  Despite the stage-fear, I ‘performed’ few times on stage. Will brag about it next time. Scan photos dulu aa.. Hihihii…

Tidur Mati! – Perangai ka ni??
Ribut taufan kebakaran gaduh2 pun tidak sedar! LOL
Orang yg kacau saya tidur, confirm kena marah. Paling best, saya tidak tau pun saya marah2 org yang kacau saya tidur. Tau2 ja, nampak org masam2 muka sama saya the next day! Huhuhuuh..  

Less water intake. Kadang2 sampai satu hari tidak minum air!

no vege!
btw, mee goreng Sabah jg la paling sedap!!

Eat no vege! Kalau makan pun, terpaksa dan dipaksa!

Empat ja la.. hihihihi...

Day 8 - What's in your wallet

You won't believe this.

Lately, I don't carry wallet in my handbag.

I think the wallet bikin berat saja! Besides, mau kurik duit seja ba kan. LOL

Hence, this pouch has become my wallet. 

Bawa IC, atm kad, lesen (mintapuji ja tu) and $$..

*wink wink*

Day 7 – VIP Person

Revised of My Pet Hates

I don’t have pets.. so yeahh… tukar tajuk! *wink*

Can you guess who will be the VIP person in my heart??

Without her, I will not be in this world.

She is my mom and she is my dad at the same time! She worked very hard to raise us both me and bro after dad left us. It was indeed one of our difficult times!

Love to see her smiling face
Back then, she is no best friend to me. She used to leave home early to work and when she is home, she will be busy with house chores. We don’t really have “heart to heart” session. Glad that we have overcome the ‘probs’. She’s like my buddies now. I can share my probs if I want to which sometimes I refused coz I don’t wanna make her worries.

I want to be strong and gritty like her!

A zillion thanks will never be enough... I wish that I can give her happiness…

You are my HERO(IN) mommy!
