Last week, a small party has been organized at my office to welcome a new rookie which is me. Taadahhhh. No dear, I am kidding. Actually, it is to welcome all new staffs that have recently joined the company . That includes me. So, there's a little welcoming session where we had to introduce ourselves to the old staffs. And then, we had delicious food and cakes for lunch.
Mutton and briyani rice, plus officemade float
Once the stomach is loaded, get back to work lah dude and dudettes.
When you reached adulthood, when you have secured a steady job, when you received your monthly salary, how much would you keep as savings? I have been working for a couple of months now and I started to think about the percentage of income that I should save in order to be considered financially responsible.
Basically, our salary would go to paying electricity, water, phone bills, car and house rental. I know different people have different way of managing their salary. I mean, what comes first, what comes second and so on. Not everyone is lucky enough to be financially supported by parents, whether partly or fully. I always, always, always feel grateful that my father gives me a car so that I don't have to worry allocating some percentage of my salary just to pay for the vehicle. And I am ever grateful that I'm staying with my family, as for now, so I don't have to think about house rental like others. But when the time comes, I will be married and stay at another house. However as for now, car and house rental are not in my concern list.
While other people are working damn hard everyday just to find almost half of their salary goes to pay needed stuffs, I feel more than blessed to not have to worry about these things. Nevertheless, I have high awareness about future savings and because of that, I plan to save as much as I can monthly so that the money won't be wasted to satisfy my endless women needs such as clothing, handbags, shoes etc. I don't need that! (yeah right, we'll see). As much as I want to resist the feminine side of me, I failed miserably. It's hard to stop yourself from buying, especially when there's great sales at the shopping complex. Nothing is wrong with it. The most important thing is to know your limit, girls out there!
"It's not what you earned, but what you save that counts"
Some people are so hooked up with luxorious lifestyle. Eat at fancy restaurant, wear branded designer's clothings, drive expensive car. Whatever it is, save some portion of your salary. Wouldn't it be great when you have more than ten thousands in your bank account at the end of the day? Start saving, people. It's for your own good.
Stuff I want so so bad but don't know how or where to get it.
Say hi to polaroid camera. Aren't they just super cute?
I never have an obsession towards cameras. Digital, DSLR, any sort of camera basically. Some people are so hooked up to this little invention, carry it around, take a snap even in the toilet. Teehehe. Come to think of it, I'm not even interested with ipad, iphone, blackberry etc. I'm not cool eh? Ask me anything about the latest gadgets invented for your pleasure. I will definitely reply with a blur face and a wrinkled brow.
But. But. But.
This. Poloroid. Thing. Is. Super. Cool. Cool. Cool.
This entry is just another medium for me to find escapism.
From work, from doing research, from writing scripts. From mental block basically.
As much as I love the nature of my job, somehow sometimes my brain gets numb. I have no idea as to why it gets numb, slow, almost retard. Dear brain, please bear with me. And today I'm such a sleepy head. I feel sleepy all of sudden, could it be the super cold aircond? And my eyes gets blur, I hate staring at the computer screen from morning to evening.
Finding yourself working hard five days a week, and the only thing you wait to happen is to spend your weekend relaxing at home with family, or engaging in your love life. Whichever it is, we can never have enough time only for ourselves. Life itself is indeed demanding, yet full of colours and stories. Did I just make myself sounded lame? Teehehehe.
Sometimes bored with the cliche idea of spending the weekends watching movies at the cinema, or go for a karaoke session, why not say hello to the world of horseriding?
Moments before I hopped onto the big horse, I was really nervous thinking of falling down, or the horse might become wild because of my body weight. What a reason eh. Excitement kills all the nervousness once you get the hold of it. Feels like Quzandria Ambak for moments (teehehehe)
What a day, I had so much fun. Definitely should make horseriding a weekly outdoor activity.
As much as I resist to waste hundreds of bucks for a concert ticket, I finally ended up buying a pass to see Super Junior, here in Kuala Lumpur. This would be my second time, the first was in last year. Only managed to snap a few photos, because I'm so enchanted by the singing, the dancing, the whole feel of being in that big indoor stadium.
And there I sit at the end of the world. Far away from the stage.
Since I was in the secondary school, I found eternal comfort in sneaker, casual footwear. They aren't only comfortable, but also simple and looks youthful. This explains my collection of sneakers arranged on the shoe rack at home. Most of them are the old ones, bought during my diploma years. Everytime I pass by a shoe store, I can't help but to go inside and have a look. Once I set my eyes on a cool sneaker, there goes my money.
They're all worth buying, because I'm a loyal shoes wearer. I wear them until they become dirty, torn and in the end, end up looking like a vegetable.
For me, sneaker is timeless. It will always be a fashion. A trend. Always in, never outdated.
Well, I have been working for a month. My very first job since I graduated. There are so many things to be learned, so many things to contribute. My prayer is, everything will go smoothly.
A day or so before I started working, a question popped in my mind. What manner will it be if I wear a sneaker to work? That is the last thing that I would want to do. Having no appropriate footwear for work, I then decided to buy one. Thank you, mother for the lovely shoes.
For nearly a month, I have been putting this on everyday. Hopefully, I'll be wearing this for a very long time. Maybe until it becomes a vegetable, just like my old sneaker.
So many things going on lately, that I can''t find even a minute to post a new entry. Busy with work at the office, family weddings, being an awesome buddy, being an obedient daughter, being a dedicated worker (errrrr betul tak bos?), being so many things.
Yet, I am grateful for I am still here.
Writing stuff happened in my life.
Live life. Inhale the fresh air. Get to meet my loved ones (I love you dear)
On March 12, marks the solemnization of my beloved elder sister, kaklong. Right after that on the afternoon, people flocks in to the wedding reception at CAC banquet hall in IIUM. I fell deeply in love with the grand hall, especially the decoration of the pelamin, with all the pink and white roses. Got me mesmerized for seconds. I guess I was right when introducing the designer, Hazree Wahid to my mom.
We had a double wedding on that day, makes that 2 brides and 2 grooms celebrating the most wonderful moment of their lives (feels like crying, really, don't ask why). So, who's next? Hahahahaha.
The hall reminds me of old interior from France, Italy, somewhere there. Maybe the lights, maybe the dining table, maybe the composition of the photo itself.
Isn't this just lovely?
My sister and hubby. May you have a blessed life along the way.
