26 December 2006

It is exactly five more days to 2007. So much have happened be it good or bad. Be it either one it only serves as something to learn from. From it you mature and I must say I have mature quite abit looking back at where I started. This is the ending of 2006 and I started it with a big bang. Haha! Not a positive one that is. I recalled having to spend my New Year at home. The reason being I sprained my ankle while playing zero point during Camp Nexus. Stupid.

But this year I am definitely going to spend it in a very special way. There are so many reasons for me to look forward to 2007. I am excited to start afresh with those people who have always mean so much to me. The people who witness my downfall and my success. I wish for a better life ahead. A life which is still unpredictable. A life full of challenges. A life with the growing love and passion. A life that I can call my own.

I will never regret the events that had happened to me in the past because that is when I create my own history. My life history. Like any history textbook you read, definitely there will be stories about the gloomy failure and the victorious sucess of a country. Our life is similar to it. When we are facing our difficult moments, it feels like War. When we are experiencing happiness, it feels like a prosperous occasion. So many comparison can be drawn only with the word Life. There is so much to Life that at times when you heard news of someone committing suicide, you begin to wonder. Is it really nothing in the name of Life that Death is a better option? And we continously wonder. But have yet to find an answer.

I digress.

I was in the middle of sharing the reasons why I cant wait for 2007 to arrive. And I am about to share my new year's resolution if I am capable of producing it at this very limited time span.

First thing first..
The Reasons..

a) Obviously the utmost reason why i cant wait for the year to end and substituting it with the next year is because this year have too much going on. Too much for me to handle. I need to close this old chapter that have gone way too long and start a new fresh chapter.

In random order the lists of events of 2006

- Major Project that brought along a very major headache and burden together with it existence. Surviving in the group was already a big chore by itself and to top it all the topic chosen was too ambitious.

- Completed MP and began with Final Year Exam which was a struggle due to multiple commitments. Too much to cope with.

- Sins.

- Tainted Flower. Beneath the Batik. The first stepping stone. A play that opened various doors of opportunities. Not all were taken wisely. Some were rejected.

- Parlez. Franco-phobe moment.

-Tepak Sireh. Tonnes of adlibs.

- DreamScape 3.0. Who says Dream cannot become a Reality? 'Cos it did in this one. Right Nad? ;)

- Friendship strengthens.

- Enter the biggest commitment of all time. And very glad still in it.

- Words can break or make people. At one point it broke us. Not for long. Friends forever. :)

- The Most memorable Birthday.

- Graduation. Diploma in Food Science and Nutrition. Useless!

- Job-hunting period. The frustration and the disappointment. And not to forget the rejection and the discrimination too!

- Getting in touch with the woman within

- Sacrifices..

- Entered the working industry. Realise it isnt like bed of roses. Realise the ugly side of life.

- Adapting to it and accepting it as it is.

Welcome into the Adult World!!
where entertainment is second to responsiblity
where CPF, DPS,Medishield and NETs are all that matters
where fast food restaurants come second to luxurious dining experience
where personality outshine superficiality
where boys become men
where girls become ladies

Apart from those mentioned reasons. I am also glad that I finally met up with the long lost friends. I really mean for a long time. This year I have met up with my primary school friends. Those friends I used to hang out with and grow up with.
Haier Diana.
Rozeanna.
Faridah.
Rosazlinda.
Munir.
Fahmi.
Anis.
Hidayah.
Muzil.

A small note to those that matters:

Congrats to Nurul'aini for surviving and still tolerating Cik Kham's attitude. And also for making it somewhere in the Media industry. Kudos!

Finally, Marissa you found the one you truly adore. Wish you all the best with him. May it not be those monkey love you had back in secondary school. And congrats for making it permanent in Supreme Court IT Department.

The thorn among the roses. Shahdon. Be strong while serving the NS. And I dont mean Physically like Aaron Aziz which I know you wanna. But be strong Mentally because it is more like a mental torture. I shall wait for me to win another of your infamous "Call from Tekong" competition. Haaha!

I heart IMH tour we had on Sunday. Truly enriching. Truly Asia! Haha. What can i say..You end up in the most unexpected place and doing well there. Have to salute your go with your instinct attitude. Very bold of you. Now you have yet to find your other half but I am still waiting for that very moment to happen. So that i can shut Shah up from pestering a Dinner together with my other half. I dont want to make the same mistake. Haha!

Lots of Love,
Halimah

Like any other bloggers that I have read their blogs talking about New year. I am not excluded.
I am also one of those who is wishing for the New Year to arrive and thus leaving this 2006 at the back of my mind. Like wise the same wish I had back in 2005. Haha! Guess some things never change but I bet this year is way way way better than the previous year.
Hey maybe I shall post up a line graph showing the different peak of my life this year. Cool huh? To better illustrate my point for 2006. Hehe.

Graph 1: Summary of Year 2006

Today was awesome. I never laughed so much for quite sometime and tonight was definitely a night to remember. Night at the museum. OMG! It was freaking funny lah! And I am so in love with those exhibits. Haha! T-rex rules ah (pun intended)! HAHAHAHA! Great show to laugh your stress out and wish it will never NEVER return again. That was what I did. And it works!! Very effective. Like the saying goes " Laughter is the best medicine". I was sick but i receive the cure to it.

Since it is just 2 days before Christmas aka Public HOLIDAY! Wohoo! I will like to wish those Christians and those non-Christian who thinks they are Christian and want to join along in the celebration..

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU!!
SHOP SHOP AND SHOP before the GST increase next year hor!


Opps apology to those colour blinds out there. Too bad you can read my special wish if it is meant to be dedicated to you that is. Oh well anyway i know you cant be bothered about my wish either so no fuss lah. Haha

Returning to the topic of new year. Yes i am getting excited as the DAY is approaching. My countdown starts a week in advance. And guess I have to prepare my New year's resolution very soon. Once I have compile everything I might just be posting it up here soon. Apart from the resolution I have alot of socialising to be done. Haha!
Meeting up with the other 2 friends that have gone through thick and thin with me in the weekend or most likely Monday.
Having Post-Christmas plus catching up session with 2 of my secondary school classmates.
Surprising someone with the guest appearance that is tentative.
So that are some of the plans ahead. End of the year isnt as bad afterall.

And I have yet to do some shopping for myself. I need to do it a.s.a.p before the Christmas is over and the year is ending.

Oh my I have lots to update but just look at the clock now. It is already past my bedtime and amazingly I am not even sleepy. Must be the festive season mood. I shall continue this another day with my very own reflection and review of 2006. Stay tune till day good day. Enjoy the Holiday.



17 December 2006

I am in dire need of some fun during the weekdays but i am almost broke. Ya i know what a time to be broke huh? Out of all time it is Christmas Season. It sucks i tell you. Moreover nowadays i just feel quite lonely. Need to be all hype up once again.

13 December 2006

Time and again he try talking sense to me.
But eversince graduation, I cant possibly register any sense.
My life is not making any sense right now. Not anymore for now.
I failed to live whatever expectation I have for myself.
I think I'm such a failure. Loser. Totally.
What have I done with my life?
Which path am I heading?
Which direction is my boat steering to?
God, how can I be so fickle?
Is this what I really want?
Come to think of it again..What exactly I want?
What is my goal in life?
-------

New year is coming soon and it is time to really do up some review about 2006. It is time to set new goals and be specific. It's time for changes. It's time to get serious.

Ps: Thanks Ashikin and Shahdon for the lunch date today. It really help me to get away from my senseless life for that less than 1 hour.

10 December 2006

Sinful day it was. Started the day with the first meal of the day and had masala tosai. As the day progressed, went out with Ashikin and Shahdon. An unplanned outing which was supposedly to be a planned one. But due to some misunderstanding and miscommunication it was cancelled the day before. So we headed to Arab Street. Indulged in the fine dining experience at Samar. I loved the ambience. Breath-taking. Exquisite. Love it! We dined the Arab-style. Was a short outing but a nice one. At least now Shahdon will leave for NS with a good note I guess. Haha! At home, had dinner. Which was obviously done not frequently. I was again transported to a different country altogether. Indonesia was the next stop. Had Nasi Ayam penyet. Gosh I'm stuffed with food the entire day. I need to watch what I eat from tomorrow. I dont wish to end up gaining additional kilos in the next coming years. I need to maintain it or lose it.

------

I'm getting bitchier day after day. It comes with age.

--------
Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.
-fort minor-
Pictures speak a thousand words but nonetheless I shall insert captions to go with it.
Enjoy the art of photography and photoshop! :)

-The End-

07 December 2006

Once upon a December, the three children went out to play. Heading Central where the real entertainment is. It was an exciting and unplanned quest for them. It was even unplanned for one of them since she got for herself an advanced Christmas present. Something she craved for long. Finally she received it. She was beaming with happiness while her other two friends celebrated the happiness with lots of laughter and joy. The craziness was up to its beam and soon it was overflowing. It was rare to experience the feeling especially on a weekday where people supposedly to be resting at home. But not for them. They never rest.

Anyway, the Christmas present she received will be posted soon if time permits.

-----------------------------------------------------

Enough of what happened previously. The more important point that I want to bring across is coming very soon now. Guess what..I actually met SOMEBODY i never plan of meeting. If Ashikin you are reading be prepared to just smile and look to your either side. Haha!
*drum rolls*
It is....
.............................
................
.....
..
H...


HILYAH!!
Not only Hilyah..
HILYAH AND HER BOYFRIEND...

THIN HILYAH AND HER ANNOYING BOYFRIEND!!!!!

That is so the "Oh My God" moment! And I actually said "Hi" to her and proceeded with asking how's life and where she's studying. I cant even believe myself that I actually tried so hard not to burst out into laughter while walking away from them. What a hilarious encounter i must admit.

It is about time for me to head on to the nearest sofa and turn on the tv set. Switch to Art Central to watch a Documentary. Haha! Yes Shahdon i'm about to follow your footstep. I'm your follower and you are my confucius. Wahaha! Whatever lah eh. Enough of me for now. Will upload pictures and the new Christmas present if time permits.

I will end this with another lyric from Carpenters. I'm so madly in love with them. I cant believe it. Love at the first hearing! And the female singer from Carpenters actually died of Bulimia! I know I'm slow but the cause of death is so...VIRUS. (finally I have a word to describe it with the help of Shah)

*******************
I need to be in Love
*******************
The hardest thing I've ever done is keep believing
There's someone in this crazy world for me
The way that people come and go through temporary lives
My chance could come and I might never know
I used to say "No promises, let's keep it simple"But freedom only helps you say goodbye
It took a while for me to learn that nothing comes for free
The price I paid is high enough for me

I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world

And fool enough to think that's what I'll find

So here I am with pockets full of good intentions
But none of them will comfort me tonight
I'm wide awake at 4 a.m. without a friend in sight
I'm hanging on a hope but I'm all right

03 December 2006

Recently, have been listening to songs by Carpenters. I become an instant fan. Even borrowed the CD from my colleague.
2 of my favourite songs are Mr. Postman and This Masquerade.

~This Masquerade~

Are we really happy with
This lonely game we play
Looking for the right words to say
Searching but not finding
Understanding anyway
We're lost in this masquerade
Both afraid to say we're just too far away
From being close together from the start
We tried to talk it over
But the words got in the way
We're lost inside this lonely game we play
(*) Thoughts of leaving disappear
Each time I see your eyes
And no matter how hard I try
To understand the reason
Why we carry on this way
And we're lost in this masquerade
We tried to talk it over
But the words got in the way
We're lost inside this lonely game we play
Repeat (*)
We're lost in a masquerade
