Biasiswa PNB

Firdaus received call from PNB regarding the PNB Overseas Scholarship application. Dia dikehendaki untuk menduduki Ujian Kelayakan Biasiswa PNB on 5th April 2010 in KL. The test will be on Monday morning, so both Faiz and I will be going with him to KL petang Ahad.

I'm actually looking forward to go to KL sebab dah lama tak pegi sana. Lepas Ujian tu nanti, boleh laa ronda pegi tengok furnitures and stuff for my new house (supposed to be getting the keys on 15th April.. hopefully!)

Incidentally, today is Farid's last exam paper for the 2nd Degree he's taking. Kesian, dia kurang sihat sejak yesterday.. demam & diarrhoea. Dah makan ubat tapi masih belum sembuh. Silap makan or stress kot?... He'll be coming home for good on Saturday, insyaAllah. Good to finally have him home after 6 years..

Temuduga MARA

10am, I was at the bank to collect my credit card when Firdaus called. Dia baru check laman web MARA and Alhamdulillah, he was shortlisted to attend interview untuk Penajaan Ijazah Luar Negara (PILN) 2010 di bawah Skim Pelajar Cemerlang (SPC). I hurried home to have a look at the offer letter online.

Tarikh Interview: 13.4.2010
Masa: 11 pagi
Tempat: Pejabat MARA Negeri Perak, Tingkat 5, Bangunan Sri Kinta, Jalan Sultan Idris Shah, Ipoh, Perak.

SMS to Faiz, who was at the office, to make sure he keeps the date free from appointments so that we can all go to Ipoh coz I know I'll be too nervous to accompany Firdaus alone. (heh! orang lain yang nak attend interview, orang lain pulak yang ketaq!)

.. hope for the best .. kalau ada rezki, ada laaa ..

What do you do when you're.....


Monday.. foul mood .. upset about a phrase someone uttered to me:
"First Come, First Serve".

I guess it's not entirely about the phrase itself but more of an accumulation of several other factors related to it that eventually triggered this depressed state of mind.

So how do I handle things on this depressing day?

Since I know I'm in no condition to mingle with family or friends, instead of sitting at home and feeling sorry for myself, I went to Queensbay alone and wandered about aimlessly.. still deep in thought about that 'phrase' ..

While window shopping the various boutiques there, I saw a nice piece of blouse at GEB. Walau tak bercadang nak shopping, I still went in to check it out (sambil pikir-pikir kejap.. "boleh pakai ke ni?"). I hesitated to try it on but the salesgirl was very encouraging.. "try la kak, we have different sizes .. 'L ada'.. 'XL ada'.. 'double XL pun ada'.. mesti boleh pakai punya. tak beli, tak apa. try dulu.." (haha.. notice that she didn't mention the size 'M'?!). well... if she insists.. why not..

Yesss!!! the baju fits nicely, I love the material! She handed me three more to try.. and another three.. and another three.. Uiih! Semua pun cantik aaa! nak pilih yang mana? I selected 5 and told her I'd come and try more next time.. Haaa.. baru hilang tension!

Friday morning, made plans with Kathy & Noraini pegi shopping 'tudung Ariani' di Sg Petani. Had a fun time trying out the variety of 'tudungs' and finally bought 4 pieces to mix and match with my new blouses .. wheeee!

Lepas ni, nak cari shoes and maybe get myself a handbag (walaupun normally tak suka nak carry handbag, but since I'm in 'shopping mode', why not get one. this would complete my shopping spree!).

Saturday morning went for breakfast with Dilla. Pakai baju baruuu... tudung baruuu.. eemm.. tapi kasut masih kasut lama.. and no handbag. Tak paaa... coming soooon..

Sunday morning, feeling much much better. The 'foul mood' is over, I feel revitalised. I've come to realize that part of being human is the inability to maintain the same state of mind forever. As with most things, a person's mood and outlook can actually cycle from depressing lows to lofty highs!

Faiz promised to take me out shopping later petang ni (shopping lagi..! berbaloi jugak 'upset' ni. boleh upset lagi laa..!)

Scholarship Applications

Firdaus minat bidang aeronautic / aircraft engineering so kita pun apply-lah apa-apa yang patut. Lepas ni, doa dan tawakal ..

oh ya.. dalam pada tu.. lewat thursday (18/3) petang, Firdaus got his MYVI! hehe.. happynya dia! that night, he drove us to Kepala Batas to visit my in-laws.

hmm.. lepas all the application's done, will have to sit down and talk to him about pocket money and petrol budget. kasi ada limit sikit naa..
