Bon Voyage Chuopa

Gurindam jiwa ... khas untuk Chuopa ...

Gurindam Jiwa
dinyanyikan semula oleh Orkestra Anak-anak Tumpangan Ganu

Tuai padi antara masak
esok jangan layu layuan
intai kami antara nampak
esok jangan rindu rindu
Simpan gaji didalam kotak

Esok jangan pokai pokaian
intai kami jgn tak nampak
esok jgn rindu rinduan
anak cina pasang lukah
lukah dipasang di Tanjung Jati
didalam hati tidak ku lupa
sebagai rambut bersimpul mati
BKC bocor carpetnya basah
Kokitab blackout lampunya mati
Kami disini tak akan lupa
Bagai disimpan didalam hati
Batang selasih permainan budak
daun selasih dimakan kuda
bercerai kasik talak tiada
seribu tahun kembali juga
Celup tepung banyaknya lemak
Sedap dimakan bersama sama
berpisah kita bukannya lama
Balik HQ nanti kan jumpa jua
burung merpati terbang seribu
hinggap seekor ditengah laman
hendak mati dihujung kubur
hendak berkubur ditapak tangan
Beramai-ramai datang dahulu
Seorang kan ke kampung halaman
Walaupun Tuan pulang dahulu
kami disini dilupa jangan
kalau tuan mudik kehulu
carikan saya bunga kemboja
kalau tuan mati dahulu
nantikan saya dipintu syurga
Bawah pokok minum selalu
Pagi-pagi makan bersama
Kalau pulang ke HQ dahulu
Nantikan kami semua disana
Catz: jangan nangis ek Chuopa ...

I'm Back ...

Just arrived from KL this evening. So since I’m pretty tired to write, I guess I’ll just photo blog for today’s entry … :)

Today's Highlight
Got this message from Wkh. He called last two days telling that he’s expecting the baby very soon. To both Alia & Wkh … congrats for your new born and to baby Haziq ... welcome to the world :) Err to Wkh, you got your three days leave starting today ;)

Merdeka Parade
The photo was taken at Marang. All other vehicle was forced to stop along the roadside to give way for this Merdeka Parade. It took about an hour until the last car passed by … one of the reason why I reached KL pretty late that night.

Catz: wonder if baby Haziq boleh nyanyi lagu irama Malaysia ... hehehe

Lost and Not Found

I don’t usually lost my personal things, but lately I’ve been so reckless!!

The other day, I dropped my camera on the pavement. Lucky no damage found ... IXUS is so durable and reliable :)

Yesterday, I left my mobile phone at the front desk and totally forgot about it. Lucky, Edy found it and returned it to me.

Today at lunch, I lost one of my most valuable things. I lost my car key peeps! Why am I so damn careless!!?? Lucky I have a spare key at home. WKH drove me home for the spare keys.

The Missing Key
This photo was taken months ago. Err if anybody found my keys … please let me know :) I’m still hoping somebody kind enough to return it back to me ….

Merdeka at Tropix
I had dinner at Tropix. We stopped at a local gas station for some petrol and air for my tyres. While I got my hand dirty filing up some air into my tyres, Chuopa was standing nearby watching … aci? *LOL*

Catz: esok balik KL ... yahooo!

Bubur Pulut Hitam

Back from the office, I went straight home to get ready for Ckin's get2gether dinner at Tenang around 8:00pm. Soon after I reached the 6th floor, a delicious aroma of bubur pulut hitam filled the air, uih sedapnye bau! I miss Mak's bubur so much! Terliur jugak bau jiran sebelah ni masak bubur, teringin pulak nak rasa, but then tak kan nak pegi mintak semangkuk pulak kan ... hehe. And kalau mintak, I bet the whole apartment will know about it tomorrow in the morning news ... *LOL*

Feeling frustrated and semi-kempunan, I went to the fridge, thought of having some munchies ... mengalas perut lah kononnye before the big dinner.

Suddenly ... Bling! Bling! (macam magic) ... huhuhu

Ada sekotak ice cream potong in da fridge, and the best thing was ... ada perasa pulut hitam!!! Yahoo ... ku tak kempunan lagi. Tak dapat the real bubuq, dapat ice cream perasa pulut hitam pun jadilah ...

Time bila beli tak tau ....

Catz: syioknya kalau dpt balik KL ...

Sunday Wedding Invitation

How often do you get invited to a wedding during office hours? For me, it’s my first time and I’m so excited!

Today the tribe convoyed to Taman Sri Putra, Tok Jembal for Ilham’s sister’s wedding. This would be an irresistible invitation to miss, especially at this time of the month … makan free beb, sapa tak nak? *LOL*

I guess most of the people at the wedding can recognize us as we had our access card hanging around our neck. So easy to spot! Dah la segerombolan macam gangsta paradise datang kenduri. Anyway, the food was so nice as we’re so hungry & broke :) Thanks to Ilham for inviting … Bila agaknye turn Ilham pulak? That time I think ramai lah jejaka2 kat office yang gegetz jari … *LOL*

It’s a beautiful wedding at a beautiful location. Love the scenery nearby. Most of the houses are facing or near the white sandy beach. Amazing! Wonder if there are any available house to rent? :)

Breezy and Calm
This photo was taken from the place we park our cars. Nice kan? Breezy yet so calm ... So anak-anak, know where is the titik lenyap?

Bride's Canopy
Ilham's house from far ... From our observation, this is actually a new elite residential area, just next to the beach. I likeeee ....

The bride's porch close up

Tersenyum simpul semuanya time nak balik ... wonder why? Sebab perut dah kenyang and hati pun senang lah ... *LOL*

The Gifts
Gifts from the wedding; a box of cup cake and a scrapbook with the bride's and groom's name on it. Nice kan? Only ladies got to have both gifts :) Jangan jelez guys!

The Tribal Dance
Sukanya! Tepi jalan pun nak menari dorang ni ... goyang! goyang! eceh eceh ... ewah ... cakpong cakpong ... jgn marah aaa guys ... joking maaaa hahahaha

Catz: nak cari rumah facing the beach lak ...

Boring Weekend

I’m bored.

Almost everybody went back to KL. Wonder why I didn’t follow them? *sigh* … miss home oledy!

Few minutes after 2:00pm, me & Chuopa grabbed some lunch at KFC Batu Buruk. We wanted to kamikaze drive to Gong Badak and surprised Fly & Family … but that would not be a good idea anyway unless there’re some goreng cempedak panas waiting for us... *LOL*

Chuopa SMSed Cik Sern & co, there were at the Store. So we headed to The Store for window shopping, and guess who we bumped into? Fly & family! … What a small Kuala Terengganu world after all … *LOL*

Rain, Rain, Go Away.
Right after we reached Permint, rain fell in buckets. Lucky we didn't leypark somewhere at Dataran Syahbandar like what Chuopa suggested. This photo was taken when I heard a rush of wind howled and flustered the windowpane. It sounded scary, but I’m getting used to it.

My Newest Addiction
Whenever I'm in Mydin Mall, this will definitely be in my grocery list. I like the packaging and the chocolate has a smooth taste. I like the combination of peaches and almond too ... yum!

My Old Time Addiction
I love M&M peanut. This was a treat from our big Boss on his 2nd trip here in KT Branch. Thanks Boss :) Thanks to Shonna for choosing M&M.

Catz: miss home lah ...

I'm not feeling very well.

Stuffed & running nose, itchy eyes, cough, mucus … you name it! I have it all. I’ve been down with this flu since last week. My stuffy nose is giving me a hard time! I’m not having enough sleep to begin with and I cannot breathe properly; my nasal is totally blocked as if there’s a growing colony living inside it.

Oops! No, I'm not actually sleeping ... I'm just stressed out and unwell :)

One of my old time favorites. Just like me rite now ... unwell :) Cute gak Rob Thomas ni kan ...

Matchbox 20

All day staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something

Hold on
Feeling like I'm headed for a breakdown
And I don't know why

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

I'm talking to myself in public
Dodging glances on the train
And I know, I know they've all been talking about me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me
Out of all the hours thinking
Somehow I've lost my mind

[Repeat Chorus]
I've been talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they'll come to get me
Yeah, they're taking me away

[Repeat Chorus]
Yeah, how I used to be
How I used to be
Well, I'm just a little unwell
How I used to be
How I used to be
I'm just a little unwell

Catz: bila agaknya nak sihat ni ...

Pak Guard

I have a bunch of nice and friendly Security Guards or Pak Guard here in this apartment complex. Even though I don’t have a legal parking sticker, they still let me in and wave to me all the time with a big smile in their faces.

Chuopa always protest that those Pak Guards treated him differently. They’ll give him a look he dislikes.

Today, after dinner I went home and saw those Pak Guards near my apartment door. I was surprised and suddenly blood rushed to my brain sending signals that I don’t really understand … terrified, shocked and blank put together.

I asked one of them, “Buat apa kat sini?”. He answered, “Dok sini …”, pointing to the apartment next to mine.

Laaaaa jiranku rupanya!! No wonder they’re so nice to me. All this while, they knew I'm their neighbor, but I dont recognize my own neighbors? *LOL*

Catz: now i have so many nice neigbors :)

Lone Ranger

A week ago, the Sorority House was fully booked. The tribe mates from HQ came over to settle off some project issues. They went back to KL yesterday. So today, I have to go home to an empty apartment. *Sigh* … home alone again.

It was a very busy week, but we had a blast. Spending the whole day at the office was kinda fun if we hang out with the right people. Our schedule was very tight but I can still hear the laughter in the air. Having fun while working will reduce stress ... tak percaya? Cubalah! :)

The Last Breakfast
Our last breakfast together this week. Macam-macam kuih-muih ada. Kerja kuat, makan mesti kuat :)

Laughter is the best medicine
Mok lah kalau you all lama-lama dok Terengganu ... asyik makan, gelak, makan, tido, makan, keje ... makan lagi ... dan makan lagi ... agenda full of makan! :)

High fashion pose by Baby Sofia
Auntie Shonna buli Sofia by blocking her eyes with her hat. Cute kan! Right after we're back at home, Baby Sofia buli both me & Shonna pulak, her mommy left her bottle at the office ... huhuhu nyaris Sofia nak kena minum susu guna picagari. Thanks to Lala & Cik Amad for sending the bottle to us ... :) FYI, me and shonna volunteered to babysit Sofia while her mommy have to stay at the office with others.

Catz: lone ranger again

His Wish Came True

Abah has been talking about it in months. Our ears were immune by the chant he made for it. Just like when it was in World Cup season, where he 'tido bola' & 'makan bola'. This one has no season, we got to hear it all the time. Everytime we ran into one, he will make his good remark about it. He could talk about it for hours.

I had 9 missed called from home the other day. I was at Batu Buruk, wondering around an unauthentic designer's handbag store. So I called Mak asking about the missed calls, and she sounded pretty excited and asked me to call Abah urgently. Feeling excited myself, I called Abah. He was with my bro at the sales office, checking out bunch of catalogs. He said "dark grey, ok ke?". "Ada mocha color tak?", I asked him. He answered, "Tak ... dark grey lah, macam Pakcik sebelah" ... bla bla bla ... lastly I said OK and he sounded so excited.

Finally, his wish came true.

Abah will get his new ride soon. Good for him, but so sad to see his BEW gone ... :)

Andai ku Tahu

Syahdunya lagu ...

Andai kutahu

andai kutahu
kapan tiba ajalku
ku akan memohon
Tuhan tolong panjangkan umurku

andai kutahu
kapan tiba masaku
ku akan memohon
Tuhan jangan Kau ambil nyawaku

aku takut
akan semua dosa dosaku
aku takut
dosa yang terus membayangiku

andai kutahu
malaikatMukan menjemputku
izinkan aku
mengucapkan kata tobat padaMu

ampuni aku
dari segala dosa dosaku
ampuni aku
menangisku bertobat padamu

aku manusia
yang takut neraka
namun aku juga
tak pantas di surga

Catz: insaf ...

today ada 120 visitors from UUM, penat giler melayan ... tapi seronok tgk fresh young minds asking questions pasal development process, lama dah tak menjawab soalan-soalan yg sebegitu rupa ... so ada karat sikit lah tapi still maintain cool *LOL*

tak cukup dengan visitors yg ramai & soalan yang bertubi-tubi macam machine gun tu, project pulak memang tgh urgent kejar deadline next week, so berlari kesana, terkejar ke sini, tumit pun dah rasa sakit ... letihnya!

tgh-tgh busy camni lah perut memanjang asyik lapar je, camne nak diet camni? dinner tadi, dek kerana tersangat lapar, dicampur dengan keletihan yang tak terhingga, sempat jugak we all order masakan panas lauk berhidang ... keja kuat, makan pun mesti kuat! *LOL*

malam ni Sorority House ni tinggal me & Shonna je, KS dah balik KL this morning 8.20am flight, Jajad & Sofia tumpang Azrul drive balik KL. So we all aje lah yg tinggal ... and if Shonna is not around, tinggal sorang je lah like always .... :)

Farewell Vai Atras

Today is Atras’s last day in NSB and Terengganu. He’s going back to KL for good tonite. It’s kinda sad to see him go, but he insisted to fulfill his quest in his career goals. For that reason, We have to let him go.

To Atras, all the best in your future plans and thank you so much for everything.

Almost all of this sketches was taken from AT's farewell flash movie, traced and colored by the Vai himself. As I post this entry, most of the tribe mates have not seen the farewell movie AT made for them yet ... :)

AT's last message to the tribe ...

The farewell dinner we had for Atras & Ckin at Ikan Bakar Bawah Jambatan. Jauh menung tu, tengah susun strategy seterusnya dalam career ... *LOL*

Hari-hari akhir di NSB & KT, bergurau dengan kawan2 ... bertumbuk pun boleh senyum-senyum ... :)

BKC's East Wing was flooded with water the day we were supposed to meet up for AT's farewell dinner. I was late to join the others coz by this unfortunate event. The same night, we had dinner in the rain as the storm hit us while we were enjoying our food ... Agus's lips (he's car ... not his real lips hehe), broke when he parked his Super Purple in front of the farewell dinner location ... too many unfortunate event for one night? Maybe someone, something, somewhere was sad to let AT go ... like us :)

This got nothing to do with AT's farewell ... *LOL*. My neighbor gave me the durian (thanks neighbor!), but unfortunately I have no tool to open it!!! *gulp*

Catz: perginya seorang Vai ...
