When The Sun Shines We’ll Shine Together. Told You I Would Be Here Forever. That I Will Always Be Your Friend. Took An Oath Lmma Stick It Out Till The End.
Whew~! Agak lama juga saya tak menjengah blog. Tak berkesempatan. Bulan Julai dan Ogos mmg akan agak sibuk dengan ‘future alignments’ dan urusan untuk konvo. There were myriads of things happened sepanjang my hiatus in writting blog ni. Where do I begin?
On fateful 11th of July, I went down to Penang (AHH, it was so good to be back in Penang ,inhaling the breeze of tropical island!! My State! You can take me outta Penang but you can never take Penang outta me y’all!~) to catch filem “Harry Potter & The Order of The Phoenix” with Kat (premiere day tu) after a back-to-back movie “Transformers” (Okla..not bad). OH MY GOD! The director David Yates mmg telah ‘menyeramkan’ visual dalam filem Harry Potter dan jalan ceritanya is one of the most honest adaptasi daripada novel. Bagi saya (dan Naz) yg merupakan peminat berat Harry Potter, filem ke-5 ni mmg tak mengecewakan dan saya bagi 5 bintang outta 5 stars!~ Well, opinions might differed bagi peminat yg tak fanatik dgn Harry Potter but what can u say?! Can’t wait for the release novel “Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows” Sabtu ni (21st July)! Anyway, it was nice getaway dengan Kat; reminiscing those good ole days of Doncha Club; karaoke-ing (Kat, i still owe u la..hehee)! Too bad Efy tak join us… Doncha rules!~ Anyway, thanks to dear friend Muzem yg sudi tumpangkan me for a night! Kinda envy him having a tempat tinggal dekat plak ngan tempat keja kat USM tu (hehe). Neeway, I would like to extend my appreciation to both Kat & Muzem for making my day worthwhile in Penang. Kat for the Doncha-ness reliving and Muzem for the encouraging advices! Thanks People!~
On Saturday, pushed off to KL around 11.15pm.Sampai Pudu 6am lebey. The AFFIN BANK interview was on 17th (Selasa) at Menara Affin, Jalan Raja Chulan. The journey was somewhat tiresome gakla; at least for Abg Zam. First, we pushed off to Putrajaya to hantar my sis and nephew with car. Sampai sana, Abg Zam and me naik motor plak to KL. Jauh gakla; approximately half an hour trip (speed la; kalao me bawak I think lambat la). Abg Zam dropped me at Menara Weld (which happened to be a shopping mall tepi Menara Affin). We had an English debate (which I am kinda nervous but managed to fake that nervousness) that day as final interview stage. I had a blast day and enjoyed my experience to the max. After that, had luncheon with Regina, Rina, Muna and Nik at Menara Weld and we just being so loud chatting in the cafetaria (teringat plak zaman Doncha)! I have to admit that we felt like we are part of the PROFFESIONAL WORLD – goin out for lunch with office attire and reliving the hustle-bustle life of metropolitan world (kan dalam cerita Ally Mcbeal; like everyone was so bz walking tepi2x jalan, crossing roads, with their offices attires and briefcases, etc).
Since Abg Zam balik pukul 5pm, initially the plan was to ‘dump’ me at KLCC. But luckily Rina plak free masa tu so I asked her to accompany aka tour guide me to KLCC. Together with Muna we headed to KLCC walking. It was nice exploring the heart of KL by walking. No biggie for me sbb Donchas always walk dulu (influent by Kat la..heeh). Hangout for a while and I then boarded Putra-lrt to Menara Tabung Haji at Ampang Park (luckily penah naik sebelum ni. dah tau la hehe). That night jugak Miss Nadia called me informing that I have been accepted to join the Affin Programme! aka MADE THE FINAL CUT OUTTA 2000 APPLICANTS.~ I am scheduled to start the programme on 1st August 2007. Alhamdulillah!
Nak balik Kedah malam tu juga coz on Thursday (today) ada exam cikgu Inggeris MRSM (oh, KPLI i didnt get; but I applied rayuan) kat MRSM Merbok. Nak dijadikan cerita Allah menduga kesabaran; tiket ke Jitra dibeli masa tuh pukul 10.30 malam di Pudu tetapi naik di Hentian Putra bertarikh 19/7/2007 sedangkan malam tu 17/7/2007! Saya hanya sedar bila ditunjukkan oleh penjaga kaunter lelaki yg BITCHY GILOS (memang babi this guy!) yg tarikh adalah silap! saya agak bengang + panik jugakla sebab penting sgt balik mlm tuh. Last2x Abg Zam reason with that STINKING BITHCY GUY & the officer, boley tukar tiket ke Alor Star mlm tu. Baki Rm3.00 dikira hangus! Geram betul sbb bukannya salah kitaorang; tapi silap lah jugak sebab tak check betul2x. In the end, Alhamdulillah sampailah di Alor Star.
Cliche as the saying ‘What Goes Around Comes Around”, banyak offer datang silih berganti bila ada peluang yg me-reject kita. Ada lagi beberapa offer selain dripada yg telah saya sebutkan di atas tapi apa2pun, saya bersyukur kepada Allah SWT bahwa at least secure one chance of becoming a working citizen. I understand what my sis meant about my mom’s anxiety; saya tahu yg laluan untuk saya memang susah berbanding org lain due to my personality and superficial outlook. Tapi saya takkan mengalah. I’m a fighter for myself and I always look high upon myself (but i’m not snooty or snobbish!). It’s a cruel world out there and I have to charm all those boring ugly professional people out there one-by-one, Insya Allah. (dramatic haha) . Saya berharap saya dapat menyesuaikan diri dengan new environment perkerjaan tu nanti. =)
Now That It’s Raining More Than Ever. Know That We Still Have Each Other. You Can Stand Under My Umbrella.
* “Umbrella” by Robyn Rihanna is a song I dedicate to all my faithful frieds who have been supportive to me through my ups & downs. The lyric is so meaningful (tak guna kalao asyik nyanyi lagu tapi tak paham makna lirik-lirik lagu tuh) about a friend who stick up to the sanctity of friendship throughout the ‘sunny’ and ‘rainy’ days of life! I am always a loyal friend and I appreciate friends who appreciate me. But I also discard friends who forget me.
