Around 1pm (Malaysia time) today, my uncle Syed Omar Alsagoff passed away. Sembahyang jenazah will be performed after Asar today at Masjid Setiawangsa.

My heartfelt condolence to Aunty Dah and family. They are great people. I wish i could be there for Aunty Dah. I hope Nedj and Kak Nadia are doing well, coping with the news from far.

Am super bummed. I dont know how to deal with death very well.


Encik Tom, ooOooOOo Encik Tom!

Today, was SUPPOSEDLY to be our house inspection, by the property agency. The letter said, to expect them between 8.30am - 5pm.

Ive been waiting dengan penuh debaran (yelah, sbb first time, dunno what to expect) since 9am this morning.

So, its 3.25pm now. Wahai Encik Tom Mojivanic (if im not mistaken), kalau ekau tak sampei2 lagi, pukul 5 tepat, eden kunci pintu tak bagi ekau masuk yoo!

Ok guys. Jom tgk jam di dinding. Tick tock tick tock.

a busy Saturday

Oh we had great fun!!!

We arrived at Burswood Park around 8.45am, yeah yeah we were teeny weeny bit late. We went straight for registraton to get our food coupons and I dashed to the que to get the Nasi Lemak. (sadly, nasi lemak kureennngggg!) Abg Shahid & Kak Nadia hasnt arrived yet. We had to wait for them because we're gonna sit with them (plus kitorg takda picnic blanket! haha takkan nk duduk atas rumput kann???). Everyone had their picnic blanket and chairs. Ada yang siap bawak meja lagi! Fuh! Jelous tgk basket2 picnic diorg, we just brought our stuff in a green bag haha

When they arrived, all five of us, including baby Aishya settled a spot under a tree, with a view of the main "pondok", with the Malaysia's flag and all. We watched the ladies and some men joined for the aerobic dance. I wish I had gone to join them, tp kak Nadia kena jaga baby, takkan nk pegi sorg2 hehe (padahal segan nak mampus!)

Then, rain comes, and all of us ran to shelter. Since it rained, the day has been ruined (to me that is). After the guys finished their treasure hunting, (I asked abg shahid, dpt nombor berapa. He said, no 1. Dari belakang.) we packed our stuff, and left the park. We were headed to nowhere, since all of us dont want to go home yet. So abg shahid made plans on the spot to take a short road trip up to the north. Nak lepaskan geram lah tu, they're going back to Msia for 3 months holiday! JELOUS!
So, we ended up going to 3 shopping malls, including Ikea in Innaloo, then went to North Beach. The beach is beautiful! The sand is so white, and the water is green. Ada surfers pulak tu. FUH! Snap snap situ sini, lps tu naik keta, pegi beach lain pulak. Snap2 lg, then we headed to Sorento Quay, at Hillary's harbour. Snap2 pictures lg, kat sini ada boat. Whoahhhh! Memang very2 nice laa. Berangan boleh beli satu nnt. Someday, someday. Had "lunch" since it was already 5pm, perut dh berkeroncong. Makan fish and chips, child's portion btw, pelik, dtg sini tak larat pulak nk mkn adult portion. Banyak sangat! Kalau kat Msia, nasi tambah berpinggan2, tapi kurus. Sini, child's portion tapi gemuk tak boleh bla! Uwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa You'll see that's ive gained weight from the pictures below.

p/s nampak gaya kena beli weight scale nih. kalau tak, tak sedar2 kegemukan melanda.

YES! Hubby ku gemuk juga. Boleh geng!

Ha ni, ni. Can u see my gemukness? Hehe

With kak Nadia and Aishya. Kesian dia panas2 silau mata papa die paksa jugak amik gamba

Love, from us.
pp/s too many pictures uploaded, especially to chinntet! sbb die tkde facebook. hmmpphh! :p

Malaysian Family Day

Tomorrow morning, we'll be going to this.

Mintak-mintak ada gambar yang bakal disnap, and boleh diguna pakai. Aminnnn.

rindu lagi

Rindu badak gemuk ni.

Time ni comel, kiut lah. Pipi gebu-gebu lagi. Mata pun bulat je.



Fuyooooo posing!

Wahhh! Mana muka kiut??? Ni muka dah matang boleh cari girlfriend dah ni!

Cepat kan diorang grow up? Nasib baik suara kiut annoying ada lagi. Kalau suara dah macam akil baligh susah lah! Tak boleh nak "Aaawwww", jantung gugur dengar suara dalam telefon.

Jangan cakap I bias sebab asyik-asyik gambar Iman. Mana gambar Muhammad and Umar? Yeaaa Im wondering the same thing. Ni pon orang bagi. Gambar2 lama tersesat dalam laptop. Aisyah, please send me some of the badak2 tu punya pictures please pretty please. I can barely remember how they look like ;p

Oh, jumpa gambar-gambar yang tak seberapa.

Iman gedik depan camera as always. Aisyah memang natural gedik

Umar, yang tak nampak muka langsung

Muhammad nampak lebih kiut dari biasa

Hadi, I gelak berdekah-dekah bila melihat gambar ini. Fuhh! Memang tak boleh bla.

Hakeem, sentiasa dengan muka berstatement "Yes, I am handsome".

Jangan marah dengan gambar-gambar yang dipost. Ni je lah yang saya ada, yang ditatap hari-hari (selain facebook). Pengubat rindu lah katakan. Selain nak malu kan korang hihihi.

Good night!

Cencaluk drink

We were having lunch at Es Teler 77, and he ordered this.

I totally forgot what the name of this drink since I dont really like it, so I asked him, "Air ape dah ni?"




"What? Tak dengar."


"Huh?" Suddenly remembers. "Bukan CINCAU ke?"

My husband's face suddenly changed, and die sengih2 macam kerang busuk!

waste of our time, and his money

We watched this movie last Saturday.

This is our first movie after two months here.

And we saw this.


Ape ke bengong???

Ive been asking hubby to watch a movie since the first week we got here. Back in Malaysia, that's our favourite thing to do. So last Saturday, we finally had our own sweet time to go to the cinema.

First impression of the cinema. Not bad. Cun jugak, macam GSC dekat OU. Very big. Selection of movies are disappointing though. We watched the list over and over again, and we could not decide as there are not one movie that we are familiar of. Plus semua movie, actors tak kenal. Few movies that we had in mind, Quantum of Solace, Madagascar 2, and The Dutchess (this is more to me-yg-gila-nk-tgk) although they may not show it anymore. To our dismay, none were listed. And Quantum of Solace release date is 18 Nov! Bengong. Kat Malaysia org dh tgk 2-3 kali dah!

So we iniminiminimo these two...

After we decided which movie to watch (Sexdrive), I suddenly saw the poster above. I dont know a single thing about this movie, but when I saw George Clooney and Brad Pitt's name, I said to hubby, "Ni ada George Cloony dgn Brad Pitt. Tah2 ni lg best." "Ok, selambe." So we queued right away, without any second thoughts. After we bought the tickets (more of Syed yg beli ehehe), we left the counter dgn muka yg terkejut gila. Why? Because the tickets costs us AUD32! MAHAL GILA!

To make it short, after we left the cinema, both of us were really bummed out. Why? The movie suck big time, and it was a total waste of money. Kecewa. What an experience.

Menyesal tak sudah we didnt watch the other two. Read the review just now, it should be better than what we watched instead.

p/s I am no good movie reviewer, so if you still want to watch the movie above, please do by all means. But if you hate it, I TOLD YOU SO!

at Forrest Place

Like Ive mention last week, we were going to Forrest Place nearby our apartment to see Santa switch on the Christmas lights.

Thats my first time to see Santa in flesh. Yeah, i was somewhat excited. Dekat Malaysia manade Santa!

So here are the pictures that we took, which is way sikit btw. And there's no picture of both of us. There's one actually, but hubby made a hideous face, and it was all blurry. Haih. *geram je rase nak letak jugak*

And, yang ni..
That's the closest I can get to Santa.

no eggs???

I felt like baking today.

Checked the pantry for ingredients. Check, check, everything checked.

Bila nk start, I opened the fridge to take 3 eggs. Guess what? I only have 1! I forgot, we ARE going to buy groceries pun petang ni.

Oh kecewa nya rasa...

Dah lama tunggu that moment to start baking again. Bila dah ada that feel, no eggs???

Shitty betul rasa.

What have I become???

If you are wearing headscarves/hijab/tudung/headcovers, your highlight would be your scarf. Right?

A friend (dont know if I can actually say her name) commented on my latest, pemalas appearance. Lacking of attractiveness, she said, or something like that.

The first time I webcam-ed with her, the first thing she said was, "Sarr, what is wrong with your tudung?!?" Ohh fogive me darling, I was in a hurry was my reply. At that time, I was in a cybercafe. Then the next one came in. "Sarr, I think you should fix your this and that."

Alah, was it that bad? Do I look that bad, my dearest ****?

Then, a phone call (by me to her). Again, "Sarr, I tgk gamba u, view dh cun. Yang tak cun tudung u je. Dull." Alaaaaaaaaaaa, I malas! Then she asked the million AUD question, "This and that dah fix???" "Dah. Sikit." Damn. She's so persistent.

Told hubby what she said, and he said, "Tu lah. Asyik2 plain." ALAMAK!

I was once told myself, bila dah kawin, still nak put effort to look nice (pretty, cun or vavavoom) whenever I go out, especially with my husband. But after we moved here, kemalasan nak put effort tu membuak-buak. I only put on make up once in a while, if we were going out with other people, pegi BBQ rumah org etc. Tapiiiii kalau berdua je, malas nak mampus!

My alasan, again, was "Alaaa Syed tu slalu suruh cepat. So kena lah cepat. Nak cun kena lama sikit".

And again, another friend, was chatting with her commented on my latest pictures I uploaded in FB. "Lawa lah gamba baru u. View lawa sangat. Tapi nape u pakai slipper je???"

Ahahahahahaha. Seriously mmg nak avoid sangat2 to wear that. I never wear slippers/flip flop when I go out. Im always with my heels, or sandals. *sigh* Punye lah praying people wont comment on my slippers, skali ada jugak. And i did not expect that coming from her! Haha but thank you very much for that comment.

To tell you the truth, its not that I dont have nice shoes/sandals/heels etc, its just that when we arrived, it was early spring. The weather was still cold. I only brought my wedges and a brand new leather flats. I couldnt wear both because I had blisters, a real bad ones, because of that bloody flats. Ive worn it a few times back in KL, ok je! The whole time kat airport tak sakit pun. Sampai sini, luka2. And not just normal blisters yea people. There's blood everywhere! And it stained my flats with blood as well. The flat jadi keras. Not soft anymore. Sedih. I could not wear anything that might make the cuts even worse. So the next best thing was to buy and wear a flip flop.

So now, I am trying to be better. I wear much nicer attire now. Oh i forgot another thing, my sis Hajar commented something too when she came to Perth for Raya last month. "Bila nak dress up macam Aussie?" Yeah, I wore pakaian2 dari Malaysia yg dah tak cool. So I said, "Haa, tu kena tunggu shopping."

So again, now, I wear almost like what people here wear (to fit in, haha). Dah tak terlalu ke'Msian'an sangat ;p. And i am avoiding wearing my flip flop when i go out, unless i do grocery shopping, which requires me to walk very fast. I put on makeup more. At least compact powder, and gloss, even grocery shopping. Org sini, mana2 pegi sume makeup. Siap mascara & eyeliner! Jealous! And oh they dress up too!

My scarves? Still ada time malas. All my printed scarves are long ones, the shawl-ish type long. So only wear those bila ada banyak time to siap. Plus I get headaches if i wear the inner scarf (tak sanggup nak letak anak tudung, tp erk, letak jugak!) for too long.

*note-to-self: blk Msia, must buy more square scarves, and most importantly, PRINTED!*

Oh whoever knows where I can get the ala-ala anak tudung yg arab2 pakai tu, yg tak gatal2, not our typical anak tudung yg hitam, putih, kelabu etc tu, pls let me know. I saw some girls wear it. It looks like streachable cotton or something, and they come with variety of colors. Saya mahu cuba yang itu. Nak tahu gatal/pening ke tak kalau pakai.

Ok. Thank you. And thank you babes, for the terlalu jujur and tak berlapik langsung (:p) comments about me. Really appreciate it.

p/s Sweetie pie, i dah fix my this and that. And I think it looks better now ;p Nanti I share the after look with you yea haha

Love. In 2am in the morning.

suraisyah oh suraisyah

Do you still remember me?

If you do, please do not hesitate to invite me to you blognota.

Sakit hati dan berkecil hati bila mendapat tahu.

Kalau tak tahu email, bertambah kecil hati ini, if you know what i mean.

Dah lah tak update pun betultaktipu. I gere u know! (please put my usual, you-will-laugh-hard tone)

Thank you very very much for your time.


Your lovely sister

Santa is coming to town. So where is MY santa?

This year, the city of Perth will be casting magic over WA with the Festival of Chrishtmas. So tomorrow, is the launching day, and they will be switching on the Christmas light at Forrest Place.

This shall be our first time experiencing real Christmas environment (of course we dont have a tree, Christmas dinner and will not be exchanging gifts). The streets are already been decorated with lights and Christmas deco, and it looks gorgeous! I notice the big Christmas tree yesterday while I was out to the mall, but I didnt do anything, not even take a picture (walaupun teringin) since I was alone. Awkward lah nak amik gamba sorang2.

As I read on the event plan for tomorrow, there will also be Santa (of course!) and after he switched the lights on, he will leave on his sleigh to David Jones (a Mall) and will be there until Christmas. I wonder if Im allowed to sit on Santa's lap and tell him what I want for Christmas? Hmmm...

And the best part is, of course, the sale!!! Ehehehehehe

But Christmas here wont be a white one. Its summer! So Santa with all that heavy suit? I dont know how he will stand it. But in TV ad, I saw a Santa wearing a summer shirt (bunga2 ala2 Hawaii), and heads to the beach to go surfing. Haha! Ah well, they have to make do with whatever they have.

So since its Christmas...

What I want for Christmas:

1) An ironing board
2) A grocery trolley
3) A very very good vacuum cleaner

Gila tak cool my wishlist. But those are the things i need!!! Ok, new wishlist for tamak me pulak.

1) Leather flats
2) Benefit makeups (sini murahhhhhh)
3) Bobbi Brown Moisturizer SPF25 (tp kat sini takde) or Benefit Dear John or ape2 good face moisturizer lah pendek kata & night cream eheheheh
4) Clothes, clothes, and more clothes!!! Summer is coming, need new summer wardrobe ehehehhe
5)CASH. MORE CASH. Not for grocery, but for me, ALL for me.
6) Flight tickets for me to balik Malaysia ehehehehehhe
7) Camera itu! DSLR baru cool. Gamba die i meant.

Bang, bila nak pegi IKEA? For my first wishlist. (Abang??? Eeewwwwww!) Ahahaha

Second wishlist tu pandai2 lah ye. Dah HINT HINT big time!

hari hadi dah pandai letak comment


Nak buat post je lah.

Seriously, in the previous post means, mak oi buruk betul! Kalau I amik gamba tu dah lama i delete, from camera lg! Tayah transfer2. Lagi2 nk upload.
And another seriously means, ermm, *bunyi cengkerik*, pointless. bazir masa betul. *click close*.
Ok cukup lah ye explanation yg tak seberapa. Ok, lepas ni no more cakap tak baik. Rasa tak baik lah. Nak gossip, call je.

Dan explanation psl news2 tu, is that two of my friends are getting married. An old friend, she is getting married in a very very short notice. If I were her, I would die sbb tak cukup masa nk plan the wedding thoroughly. Can u imagine, hari ni tunang, hari ni decide date kawin, which is another 20+ hari. Tak gedebuk gedebak ke jantung???
And the other friend is also getting married, just tatau exact date.
Oh yeah, totally forgot, my sweet classmate back in UTP is also getting married. Cik Faeeza. I hope u dont mind me memberitahu disini. Since mcm byk je wedding prep kann??? *wink wink* Date exactly, im not really sure. But I know which month, and I know I wont be able to make it. Haihh. Sedih.

AND AIZUDDIN. NO, I AM NOT! Tak baik buat cerita yg tidak betul. Kalau ayah saya baca blog saya and baca comment awk mcm mane??? News2 tu sume related to wedding bells sahaja ye. Iskkkkk! If I am, kemungkinan akan di beritahu kat sini tu ada. Tp mungkin je lahhh ;p Tak pun nk surprise je. Macam, tadaaaa!!! Boleh?




I told hubby about the whole google and ***** hair thingy tu. And he said, ermm uh huh. So? And I was like, WTH? Tak klaka ke? And to which he quickly replies, tak pun.

Ye ke? I thought it was hilarious. Maybe he thought hair rather than "hair" perhaps? Ke camne korang pikir? Isk.

Oh ye, I didnt say WTH out loud. Nak kena marah dengan encik suami?


Tomorrow morning Kak Maiza is coming to my hse to learn how to make trifle. Pelik pulak rasa nk blaja siap datang rumah. But I dont mind at all, at least I have company in the morning.
This morning I was accompanied by the handyman who was fixing here and there in our aparment. Ok laa tu ada jugak org teman dkt rumah, tak laa sorg2 sgt hihi

Our lights in the hallway and in the bedroom has been changed by the super handyman. Dont judge us for not changing them ourselves. Our ceiling's 3m high! Even the handyman was like, whoaaa that's a high ceiling. This ladder wont make it to up there. Oh he brought a normal ladder and had to go back and bring another ladder. So i guess we need to buy a very2 high ladder for next time. Susah jugak nk tuka lampu ni.

Anyhow, after the guy left, I took my lappie to the bedroom, and berinternet atas katil, under the quilt. Ahhh now that's more like it. Hubby got home, and I was like, "Look look, best kan bilik kita dh terang? Terang macam...(macammmm for a minute)...macam terang, kan?" Jakun betul bilik well lit. Sampai tatau nk describe how bright our room is now. Excuse me, when we moved in, the light bulb mmg tak dituka lg. So all this while bergelap gelita. Janji nk tuka cpt2, lepas sebulan lebih br nk dtg. Hmmpphh! But all forgiven, sebab bilik kami terang! Tapi Abg Shahid ckp, tak best laa dh tak romantik. Haha!


Hari ni, we continued discussing on nanti nak balik rumah sape dulu, and berapa lama, and all that. Yes, we actually are having this endless conversation for the first time. We bought the tickets to Malaysia for Raya on Sept next year. So we have to decide which date to go to Terengganu, and back to KL. Tak best lah kena decide benda2 macam ni. Maybe sebab first time kot? Thank god my kampung is an hour drive away from his house, so boleh laa kesana kemari. Mintak2 lah next year raya kat kampung. What if my nenek tiba2 je cakap, "Kite raya KL lah tahun ni. Aku malas kemas rumah." Tak ke naya i??? Tak. Tak mungkin.

Dah laa Sarah. Raya dah habis lah!

Ok. So I pun habis lah sini.

Good night Malaysia. And Australia. And Moscow! :p

what I like, and what I don't like, and something funny

Dearest readers,

Today it says,


Yahoo Malaysia punya headlight for the day. Wahhh! Teringin makan roti canai! And teh tarik. And Nasi Kandar! *sobbb* And semua lah! Burger King, MCD, KFC... (air liur dah meleleh)

Ok, stop it.

I was browsing friendster, yeap, i still do that sometimes bila facebook dh takde benda menarik (i.e no new notifications, no one wants to write on my wall, etc), and came by to a friend of mine. Tak rapat pn, tp kawan lah jugak time skolah2 dulu. So baca lah blog dia as well, as i saw a link. Before the page is uploaded, I knew what to expect. But seriously? I mean seriously? Haih, I dont want to say too much, but seriously?

I know I am no one to judge anyone, but seriously? And I came across another friend the other day, who has flikr, and I have no idea why I opened it. Somehow I know what's coming, and I thought maybe I would be wrong. But oh boy, I was totally right! Oh hell, it was junk. Really. But I read her blog once. Its not that bad though.

Sometimes I feel bad even thinking about it, but now Im writing about it! Teruk gila. Rasa macam, what the hell is **** thinking??? But bear with me people, I have no one to mengumpat with haha!

Ok, enought of cakap tidak baik.

Last night I spent hours online blog hopping. I clicked to this and that blogs, and it was ALL GOOD! I had stomach cramps because I laughed so hard, and so silently. Encik hubby is snoring (literally) in the bedroom, so tak baik lah buat bising :p
Anyways, I was so impressed because all the blogs I read was Malaysian, and all of them uses Bahasa, in full. I know lots who wrote in English, and my sister also used to blog in English. But now, she's come up to the next level, which is both English and Bahasa hehe. Why Im impressed? Because I dont know how to write a perfect sentence in Bahasa. Karangan dulu pun bole lah sikit2. But to express myself, and blog is so difficult in Bahasa. To me, that is. I know Im not THAT good in English either. But Im much comfortable in English. Honestly, ckp dlm hati pn speaking. Sms, English most of the time. Kalau marah pn Im more to English. Kalau BM, mcm susah je? Gila gedik kan?

But I do want to blog in Bahasa. Sometimes it sounded much cooler, and funnier. I think I had a few that I wrote in Bahasa, but not full. So must try to write one next time FULL. Kalau boleh nk selitkan peribahasa dan pantun sekali. Ye lah tu.


I've had enough of people asking me, "Sekarang pukul berapa kat sana?". Tapi I did the same all the time, both to my sister (she's in Brisbane btw, IN THE SAME COUNTRY! pun berjuta kali nak tanya) and my brother (Moscow). I know both time differences, but I still asked sometimes anyway. Weird isnt it? Why lah?


I googled my name for the first time. But I didnt googled full name. Just my not-so-famous-but-everyone-knows-me-by-that name. So yadaa yadaa yadaa, the usual results of facebook, my blog, and friendster. But when I scrolled down some more, and I saw this!

Small Brow Shader 23
The secret to natural brow coloring. Pure pahmi hair ensures a firm, yet flexible touch for fine-tuned application and blending.


Damn funny. Pahmi hair... kih kih kih kih kih. I am never ever going to buy that brush!
If my Dad reads this, I couldnt imagine his face. Hi Ayah! :D

Great news, always.

Wah wah wah, today, I heard 2 great news! And although they dont read my blog here, CONGRATULATIONS anyway! Am so happy for both of them.

I love great news like those two from Malaysia. It makes me feel closer to home and always updated. Org jauh2 slalu tau lg awal sbb in case can make time and balik hehe But sedih takleh share2 as much as I wish.

Anyhow, on a brighter side, Insyallah I will be there for Suraya Rahman on her big day and share her happy day with her and all the ladies! Yeay! Which does not include the 2 great news above btw. But I just need some time to persuade hubby hehe sabar ye suraya. Dh confirm nnt, kite bgtau ;) (Ohh mcm lah die baca blog ni jugak!)

Bought the flight tickets for raya NEXT YEAR! Hahah I know, I know. My sis ckp, semangat nyeee beli awal2! And Dad was like, "Wow, sept ko dec? As in raya haji?" Haha I wish lah Ayah, I wish. We got a very, very good deal for the tickets, so THANK YOU AIR ASIA! If you make promos like that more often, now everyone can fly home every month. Yeayyyyyy!

Perut lapar. Jumaat Syed tak blk for lunch. And of course, if he's not home for lunch, my lunch will go bye bye jugak. Sbb mls nk masak for one. So let's see what's in the fridge, shall we?

Growing Up

Once upon a time, when I was small, I always thanked God for a blessed, and a happy family that I have.

Our world was not perfect and that comfortable back in those days. Dad was working really hard to feed us all. He would go away for weeks for some money. But when he's home, he made the time to give us piggy rides on his back all around the house, while mom watching, smiling and laughing. We would wear his safety helmets and goggles and his coverall. And all four of us would argue who would go first. And we would always decide two-by-two. Me and Hajar, Hadi and Hakeem. Its only fair. Not fair to Dad's back though.

We would take pictures all the time, even at home. Dad loves taking pictures of mom and us. Every snap he took is still in the albums, and we would sit around and look at one album at a time, laughing and making fun of each other on how ridiculous and ugly we were when we were kids. Im glad he loves taking pictures of us.

Dinner time was like a birthday party, every night. We would eat, and tell stories, and talked and joked. Everyday, we would tell our parents how our day was. And they did too.

During weekends when he's around, we would spend ours helping him (or more of bugging him actually) while he do his gardening. We love raking out leaves and put it in a huge bundle, and dad would burnt it. Yes ppl, we had open fire in our backyard all the time. But back then there's no jerebu heh heh

I remember one night, we had a blackout, and dad told us to grab our chairs (we each had a small, bright colored chair) and go outside. And we sit outside for hours talking and looking at the stars that night. It was beautiful.

Mom was always home. I am always glad I had a full time mom. She would be there whenever we needed her. I always loved her hot milo she made in the morning for me before going to school. And she always packed me a "teh O" in my yellow tumbler for me to have during breaks. Pelik, but i always loved it.

When i hoped off the bus after school, I would ran into the house and take off my school uniform and my bag all over the house and wear nothing but my underwear. Ye, dgn tak malu nye mengaku. And mom would patiently picked all up and put it in my room. And I would play and watch TV with my sister and brothers.

At night, we read Quran in front of Mom right after Isya', still in our praying clothes. And Dad would take pictures again.

Weekends, we would helped Dad wash his car, or the carpet, or anything that has to do with the water hose, and we would be jumping up and down taking our clothes off and head for the shower. And Dad would take pictures too.

Dad was always blunt with showing his affection to Mom. He would hug her, hold her hands, and touching her head in front of us. And even in public. I know sometimes Mom was very shy, and sometimes she would avoid all the PA. But I know deep down she felt loved and happy and knew that the man she married loves her so very much that he would want the world to know how lucky he is to have her.

We love each other.

I love the fact that all of us are so close with each other. I would spend hours on the phone with my sisters or brothers even though I know I would see them the very next day. I love the fact I can always talk to them about everything and anything. And we could all understand our jokes. Except Aisyah! Haha Ok just kidding cah ;p

As I grow up, we never get to do all that anymore. But I get to see my other sister and brothers (after Hakeem) get their happy growing up moments. And Im glad things never change in our house.

And whenever I think of those good old days, I would smile, and felt so proud and blessed, and I wish my children will feel the same way I felt growing up.

As you can see, my life is full of noise. And people. And love.

So when its quite, it felt awful. Just awful.

An announcement!

If you want to buy perfume, with a good price, sila lah ke sini ye. I think the price is very affordable ;)

Sambil2 tu boleh laa tgk kot2 ada gamba kitorg jugak hehe


The one with the dinner party

Im guessing some may think "Kesian sarah kat Perth tu, hilang social life dia takde kawan."

Haa, if u dont, i did. Felt upset a lil bit since we dont know many people, YET. Our house is so quite, the only noise (which is quite noisy though) is syed's loud voice talking on the phone. Sedih kan? Haha and our entertainment is the internet and TV, most of the time especially on weekdays. And sometimes i was entertained by syed when he's boring tahap gila buat lawak main kejar2 or sorok belakang pintu terkejutkan org.

But this whole week was quite different.

The first guests we had at our house was Ayah Mat and Aunty Nora for dinner on Sunday, and i made spaghetti. Ape lg yg expert ye tak? hehe Kalau nk masak nasi ngn lauk still beginner lg. Lauk pn limited bak kate syed. Sorry ye encik Syed, makan je lah ape yg ade ;p

Then, we were planning to go for pot luck on Friday at Kak Nor's hse on Friday, which we've never met btw. We were invited by Kak Maiza, which we met at Harbour Town and were exchanging numbers and became instant friends. But on Thursday Kak Maiza called and told me that Kak Nor's busy on Friday so we couldnt have it at her hse and Kak Maiza suggested to have it at our hse instead, if its ok with us. Of course I said yes, excited as i was. Called hubby right away, and went to the butcher after lunch. It was the first time i took a bus alone and out of the city.

As some may know, I loveeeeee having dinner parties. Hosting one is my favourite. But unfortunately i dont think hubby knows, and he's not a fan of hosting one, cakap takut penat nnt. But of course lah kena jugak since i was too eager and i already said yes to Kak Maiza hehe. And i told him, once he's home from work, all he has to do is just laze around until ppl shows up, and i'll take care of the rest. All i asked was for him to be the photographer for the night. Punyalah nk amik hati.

So we ended up having a nice dinner "party" at our house on Friday. Ppl showed up around 7.30pm. The funny thing was we didnt even know or met our first guests before! Punya lah awkward, tp kena lah friendly jugak kan? Hehe And later Kak Maiza showed up with the rest of the crew. Lega sikit ada yg kenal. Our house was full! I was so excited and happy because we never have so many ppl in our small apartment before. And later Kak Nadia, Abg Shahid and baby Aishya showed up. Baby Aishya comel, but she slept the whole time! Tak sempat nk main2 ngn dia. I think we had around 12 ppl who came. Penuh rumah. We had a great night, eating, talking and laughing. And not forgetting exchanging phone numbers! I made friends with everyone. Bahagia. =D

They left around 11pm. They helped with the dishes as well. Best best. Kalau kt kl sendiri basuh sume maa... Hehe

After everyone was gone, we were exhausted. Lepak dpn tv and borak, and hubby said "It seems like we had a housewarming party or something." Boleh lah. Sekali kan je. Plus Kak Nadia and Abg Shahid never been to our hse before. Before this kitorg je menyemak kt rumah diorg every weekend. Muka tak malu betul. Lps tu tak ajak dtg rumah pn hehe. Sorry lah ye Kak Nadia, bukan tanak ajak, tp rumah still byk kekurangan. Nk menjamu pn rasa segan. But after we got our stuff from Malaysia, and the fridge has been restocked with loads of food, boleh laa buat makan2 lagi ;D

The sedih part sikit was, Syed Ahmad Khairi tak amik gamba langsung! :( Takleh nk show off kat sini haha
