Coping with losing Joey Love

Pets are a very important part of the family. When they pass away, it's as though a part of the family has died too, not just an animal.

Yasmin is heartbroken, and I don't know what to do. Though Joey was with her for only 3 weeks, she has grown very attached to him. He was the bright spot in her life. She gave him so much love, kindness and attention... fussing about him all the time.

I know how much he meant to her. We are all going to miss him dearly...

The one best place to bury a pet ...
... is in the heart of its master.

I've just hiccuped for what seems like ("Hic!") the tenth time since this morning!

Tak mau hilang... ("Hic!") comes and goes ... then ("Hic!") come again... and goes... ("Hic!")

Orang cakap some of the ways to get rid of hiccups:-

1. try ("Hic!") holding your breath and count to 10
2. drink water from the "wrong" side ("Hic!") of the cup
3. put sugar under the tongue ("Hic!")

well ...

1. I ("Hic!") held my breath till I nearly suffocated ("Hic!") myself!
2. I drank lots ("Hic!") of water till I felt like a walking ("Hic!") 'water tank'!
3. I makan macam-macam sweets ("Hic!") till it destroyed my taste buds of ("Hic!") anything else!

still ...




Maybe should try the last ("Hic!") suggested treatment —

Having ("Hic!") someone jump out and scare me out of my wits ("Hic!") when I'm not expecting it!! Boo!!

opocot !!!




while typing this entry
my hiccups went away!

It's been almost a year since I last updated about Weight Loss ( or should I label it as Weight Gain!!?? ).

The treatment was fine. Gradually losing weight and everything...

Then ...

my family and I went to Europe for the holidays ...

Wah! holiday means... total relaxing .. enjoying .. no restrictions !


Weight Gained !!

Lepas tu, lazy nak pegi Slimming centre... postponing from one appointment to the other. Lastly, busy pulak dengan house renovations and stuff.

To date ...

naik 4kg uuuuuuuu!!!

huarggghhhh !!! help!!

x o

Hari ni, bought protein shake meal replacement. Aduiihh... gotta do something with the extra weight, gotta start somewhere !

Hopefully by starting now, combined with 'coming soon' Ramadhan fasting would be able to help shed off some kgs (for me to look good for Raya and fully enjoy the Raya feast!!).

Apa la nak jadi... nak kurus... tapi nak jugak makan...

My poor body is confused ... isy! isy ! isy!

x o

"Dolly...! I'm home !", ... as Faiz breezed in through the front door. "I beli your favourite...".

"Yeay! Apa tuuu?"

Hor Lor

...oooppsie... !!

(my protein shake is STARING at me !)

errrmmm... (dengan tanpa rasa bersalahnya) ... simpan u dulu la, eh? Rezeki jangan di tolak !

Apology Accepted

passed days...
hurt with the way things were stated against me...
now comes the apology

YES, you have your reasons
I’m sorry too for what-so-ever things I must have done,
justified enough in your eyes
for you to bring upon such anger.

The thing is ...
Both were hurt ...
and things won’t be forgotten quite as it is.

Sometimes people do say useless words against me
but they don’t hurt me,
for I know myself better than they do.

But when the words come from people close at heart,
it kills me to my being.

I got hurt...
I wrote it down...
and silenced it with my prayers
that’s my way of healing things.

Patching things up won’t be easy.
It's hard to mend things that have offended the heart.

Though I have accepted your apology...
The hurt remains...
I am sorry for feeling this way,
It’s just me...

The warmth of a friend's presence brings joy to our hearts...
sunlight to our souls...
and pleasure to all of life.

... And this morning, I had the pleasure - times three!!

***Kathy, Noraini and Dilla***

Pagi-pagi... had our usual breakfast. Oh! Enna, Rina and Kila were already at the Bukit Jambul Astaka when I arrived.

10.30am, my three friends and I left for 'Little India'. Kita ada 'projek' nak dibuat kat situ. Tak lama pun... kejap jer dah selesai.

Still early...


"Let's go to Gurney".
"Ok, all of us only need to be back home by 1pm anyway."
"Jom !"

On the way, singgah pick-up a couple of skincare items at Blaze.

Then, we're off to ....

... for Scones, Earl Grey Tea and Chai Latte.

Sweetest sense of happiness
comes from simply
being together

I had fun, food and funny moments today.

it's not my birthday ... yet


i've got a lovely gift

handmade specially for me...

my very own initial embossed coins purse

Thanks, Kathy. Bukan sebarang thanks tau. Terima kasih daun keladi...

Later, Noraini and I were treated to perfect cups of brewed coffee at Kathy's place. Compliments to Encik Ridzuan's (wow!) Red Hot CBTL Coffee Maker.

milk frother

I particularly loved the sprinkling of cocoa on the frothed milk. The taste and aroma was heavenly ... yuummmm ...

Meet ...


... and ... ISABELLE

Yasmin's (Joey) and Nabila's (Isabelle) Sugar Glider pets... small, cute and relatively easy to care for.

Saturday, June 04, 2011

Yeay! .. My sister is coming back for a week's holiday. Yasmin is also home for the weekend. Am really looking forward to spending quality time with both of them. Have lots of catching up and 'exchanging notes' to do between the three of us !
