Accident March 31, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — hubbsnmoi @ 5:32 pm

Savvy is involved in accident. Again. In the carpark. Again. Two spots away from the previous accident. Agaknye, memang that row is jinxed big time.

Previously, my PARKED car was hit by an international student who accidentally stepped on the accelerator instead of brake. He didn’t have any license with him. He was driving a car which was rent ‘illegally’. Means, one of the staff rented out his car, so the students have access to staff’s parking spaces. Itu orang aku dah sumpah dah dulu.

This morning, I was easing my way into the parking space, head first. Between two big cars. As per normal, mesti nak straighten the car right? I looked left and right, OK no car. I put my car in reverse, when suddenly, in a split second my reverse sensor beeped, followed by a loud horn and BANG!. Di pagi hari yang aman tu, mestilah tergamam. Confused pun ada. I turned, and saw a white wira. Ohh, berasap juga hatiku. Dari mana datangnya kereta bertuah ini. The husband of a new clerk in my department was driving.  Grrrr. Bontot Savvy still intact. Tapi ada battlescar dgn lekuk. *Sekuat tuannya, i guess*. Tapi wira tu agak parah. The front passenger door is dented. One of the library staff who saw the incident, asked the man to parked his car at the side. Utk berbincang. Berbincang mincang. All i remember was, he went out of his car, and checked HIS damage ONLY. As if implying it was my fault. Pfft. And all he could say was – “macam mana ni kak?”. I raised an eyebrow and said – “macam mana? macam itu la! saya reverse slow.. dari mana awak datang?”

The man said – “Kita settle kemudian la. Saya pun dah lambat, nak g keje dulu. Apa2 bincang dengan isteri saya.” POINT 1 – he admitted he was in rush. takpe aku simpan dulu reason dia. I was in NO MOOD to dilly dally whatsoever. Deep inside, i felt this is not entirely my fault.

So, I went searching for witness. There were TWO. Both of them said he was speeding, in a carpark. Both of them saw I was reversing when the car dashed in. One of them also said, just pay him RM50 sudah.  So, after lunch I talked to the wife. She said, her husband went to a workshop to assess the damage. *btw, workshop kawan dia.* Katanya, total in RM400. Crap. Ingat bawak BMW kapa sampai gitu. Terus cancel nak kasi wang ihsan RM50. THIS IS WAR MAN!

So, I consulted few male staffs, asking their opinion. Called up my hubby and dad. Ada lah script2 yang mereka beri to defend myself. Conclusion : AM NOT GOING TO PAY A SINGLE CENT. PAYING MEANS IT’S MY FAULT. AND WHO’S GOING TO PAY FOR MY DAMAGE? BESIDES IT’S A PARKING LOT, AND U’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO SPEED. AND I WAS REVERSING. HOW FAST CAN I REVERSE?

Now waiting for her husband to fetch her. We’re going to berbincang schmincang. Wish me luck.

Ruby Rubita March 26, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — hubbsnmoi @ 5:29 pm

Tired, but happy. That could sum up the past two days in the office. The librarians (S41 and S44) are attending an English course from Wednesday to friday, with a consultant who was a librarian WITH our organisation wayyyy back in the 80’s. Blimey, she reminds me of Farrah Fawcett, and I was told, during her younger days, that’s what they called her! She don’t look her age. NOTHING LIKE HER AGE. I’ll try taking a picture of her tomorrow.

Anyway, we were having a blast. The class was fun, and am looking forward for tomorrow. Today, we had a role play for the session before lunch, and unlucky for me, I had to play a part, as a grumpy, grumbling student who complained a lot. Hah! Part komplen komplen ni, mmg aku sangat suka!

So, to inject some element of drama to our role play, I became Ruby Rubita. Hehe. Have no idea where that name comes from. The name kinda stick to me, even Pn. Farrah Fawcett thought it was my real name, which she has used throughout the class. Hahaha. And me being cheeky, I continued to address myself as Ruby Rubita. Even the colleagues went along! hehe

The funny part was, when Pn. Farrah Fawcett was having lunch with THE bosses, she did mention me, as in Ruby Rubita, to them. Fyi, the bosses don’t join the classes. which is good, if not we won’t have as much fun. The boss punyelah berkerut2, “We don’t have a librarian named Ruby Rubita.”, and Pn. Farrah Fawcett kept insisting, “there WAS a Ruby Rubita in my class!”

Kehkehkehkeh.

The adventure of Ruby Rubita continues…

 

Hunting Crocodile March 22, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — hubbsnmoi @ 4:39 pm

Happy Sunday! hmm happyke sunday ni? to me, it’s a mixed feeling. happy that it’s still sunday, but then came the sad part cos tomorrow would be monday.

anywaysss… cerita pasal weekend. Hari jumaat yang lepas, saya duty malam. clock in at 2.45pm chow at 10.00pm. as a librarian, kdg2 mmg kena duty reference desk memalam. nasib hari tu x ramai student. ada la dalam 10 orang je from 5pm-10pm. mebe xde sapa nk dtg psl librarian yg on duty tak mekap kot? kehkehkeh

So, pada mulenye hubby kena paksa mengoffer to fetch me frm work. Tetapi, mengenangkan he was on night shift the night before PLUS in the evening he had to supervise orang pindah2kn barang from his house in S’pore to  MIL’s in Pasir Gudang, he would be without sleep for 24 hours. Maka, dengan malasnye, terpaksa la mengdrive ke work, then malam join him at MIL’s in Pasir Gudang. Adeh.. Skudai-Pasir Gudang is 30mins of driving over speed limit. Jd plannya adalah we would spend the weekend over there. lagipun dah lama x jenguk rumah situ. Debu adalah tebal seinci agaknye.

Disebabkan dia dah concussed once he’s in Pasir Gudang, I pun memborong segala food ratio for the weekend to be brought there once i finished working. Saya suka rumah kt PG tu. Sejuk dan damai je pagi2, easy to maintain, tapi sayangnya we won’t have it for long 😦 MIL pun da jarang sangat balik sana, sebab takde transport. For us to live there pulak.. the location is far from our working place (sebab tu im still living w my parents, sementara menunggu rumah sendiri siap). So sementara rumah PG tu masih ada, it’s a getaway place for us.

Rancangan pada pagi ahad adalah mencari Sarang Buaya Pasir Gudang. Iye, saya pun baru tahu ada Sarang Buaya kt Johor ni. Since masing2 bawak kereta, hubby pn lead the way (jadi kalau sesat, dia punya salah). Ingatkan dekat, tapi jauhhhhhhhh lagi ke dalam.. jalan menghala ke Pelabuhan Tanjung Langsat. Dalam berjalan tu, baru la tahu ada mcm2 tempat kt Johor ni rupenye. Tg. Langsat tu rasanya masih dlm development lagi. give it 2-3 years, maybe boleh challenge Harbour Front kat Singapore tu kot? 😉 Sepanjang perjalanan pun dah naik bunting and billboard promoting sarang buaya tu. The landscape looked good. Teruja rasanya.

Nak dijadikan cerita, nak ke sarang tu kena lalu checkpoint kt Tg. Langsat. Abt 11-ish kitorg tiba kat Pintu Masuk Pelabuhan Tg. Langsat, tengok semua (erm..sebenarnye tiga kereta je, inc. mine n hubby) keter pusing balik. Mak aii.. nampak mcm xde orang.. barrier pun tak angkat..as if mcm kita masuk restricted area gitu. So cakap dgn hubby, kita pusing alik je. Sbb asalnya just want to see how the place look like. Maybe dah siap nanti bleh la memburu buaya-buaya di Johor ini. I donnolah kan. geram pun ade. we drove alllll the way there, only to be dissapointed.

Balik rumah, terus google la sarang buaya pasir gudang. Surprisingly, it’s SUPPOSED to be open on SUNDAY, from 9 am. tapi, serious macam xde makhluk pun sepanjang perjalanan kita ke sana. Another surprised would be, from the website, tujuan sarang buaya tu untuk attract pelancong luar, and nak promote eco-tourism. Tapi cuba lah tengok harga tiket utk pelancong non-malaysian tu berapa. Sorry to say, I would not agree to be part with that amount of money just for me n hubby.

Maybe next time la kan?

p/s: Saya kalah lagi main Uno. This time the loser WAJIB mandikan si Jac. Adik mandikan Jac SEKALI seumur hidup aje, dan dia keluar toilet dengan battlescar. OOooH.. I’m so scared.

Wish me luck.

 

A Confession from An Ex-Coffee Addict March 19, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — hubbsnmoi @ 2:13 pm

I’m at the stage of trying to wean off coffee. I used to have a cup of coffee EVERY morning. I would even stop at any petrol station, and bancuh kopi sendiri, and bring it to work. Kalau tak sempat, go to any McD drive thru, and bought the coffee only. Even at one time, *before the boycotting started*, I would had an ice blended or a latte for lunch too. Being near to JJ Tmn U with s*tarbucks outlet, isn’t helping at all. During that time, I needed that extra caffeine to stay hyper, in order to finish my workload. Ye, saya menjadi sangat hyper, sangat happy after drinking coffee. Coffee to me is like Shell V Power to a car. Go figure.

I need caffeine to jump-start my day. I even need coffee to, ahem.. do the ‘Number 2’. Now, I drink hot choc every morning instead for that caffeine fix (yes, choc has caffeine in it. minute amount). But, the result sangatlah slow. But, I’m trying to wean off. It’s do or die.

Yes, there’s a moment where i feel sangattt teringin to have one. Jadi everytime buat kopi for hubby, amiklah dalam satu sudu. Kadang seduttt bau dalam dalam. syiOknye. whenever passes by s*tarbucks or co*ffee bean, jalan pelan2.. sedutttt lagi dalam-dalam. Kalau tak tahan sangat, minum la dalam quarter cup je. jadilaaa..

Tapi, saya kalah pada hari ini. I bought a grande. Siap suruh masuk dalam tumbler. dapatlah rm2 off. and i’m happy and hyper. type pun laju je ni.. with RU and Misi ke Greece, dua-dua kena siapkan esok tapi dua-dua banyaaakk lagi lom siap SO there’s a HUGE possibility i’m staying back today.

Hehe. dah start ketawa sorang-sorang da. hehe.

Enjoy.

 

Oh No, UNO! March 18, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — hubbsnmoi @ 9:07 am

Yesterday, after fetching me from work, hubby and me decided to drop in to our favourite nearby ‘kedai mamak new age’ aka C*altex, mencari jajan.  Bought myself Cornetto Black Forest yang sangat mengujakan! Hubby tak sudah2 with his soya bean drink. Nowadays, most of the convenience store in pump stations are selling toys, card games along with tidbits ntah-hape-hape tu kan, whick i think sgtlah merbahaya kalau bawak kanak2 kecik. Anyway, time lalu aisle toys and games tu, terpandang lah satu kotak Uno for RM10! wahhh.. back in school both of us were avid players of Uno and many versions of it.. Uno donkey la.. Uno beruk la.. so naturally we grabbed one. Murahkan. hehe. Lagipun, nothing good was on TV semlm, maka terisilah masa lapang kami mlm nanti. kehkehkeh.

So, dengan semangatnya, pas dinner, ajak Syiqah main sekali. This time set rule, best of 4 wins (mula-mula best of 5, tp mcm lama sgt nak abis, tukar jadi 4). Yang paling selalu kalah kena belanja McD, kaw kaw punye. and me being OPTIMISTIC, siap da plan nak Big and Tasty Meal. ngehngehngeh. maka dengan hebatnya, aku lah jadi shuffler aka kocok kad. hubby kata ‘cong’ kad. tak kisah la kan..cong or cing… permainan pun bermula..

I was leading in the 1st two round. wahh.. big and tasty dlm genggaman. dah 2 mata dah ni, another 2 and I’m going to win. Dah celebrate dah. hehe. Adik asik kalah je. Hubby plak asik selamat 2nd place. Tapi, sebanyak mana aku menang, banyak tu jugak aku kalah. Last-last, tak citer pon tau da kan.. siapa yang kena belanja orang lain McD..

Yang sakit hati tu, kena gelak mati2 dgn hubby.. “Tulah, never celebrate too early..”

McD tunda next week boleh? tunggu gaji 😉

From a Woman, to Another.. March 12, 2009

Filed under: flashback,Moflow — hubbsnmoi @ 2:07 pm
Tags: ,

..so, if you’re a man, just skip this post.

I’m having a major moflo going on. This is the 3rd moflo since my  miscarriage, in late November 08. In January, 1st moflo came. The pain, mak aii.. I guess tengah mencuci what’s left kot?. 28 days after, the 2nd moflo came, which wasn’t good. Not a flow at all, if you know what I mean.   Lasted only 4 days. Decided that I had enough of waiting and letting ‘nature take its course’. Started to take supplement(s) religiously. Then came 3rd moflo on day 22. One week early.

Prior to that, been having pms-y sign – particulary b*s*m tenderness A DAY after 2nd moflo. Told hubby, ni macam lain ni. baru abis moflo takkan dah show pms signs?  Was it moflo or implantation bleeding? Last time when I didn’t know I was pregnant, I felt this way too, especially the tenderness, leg cramps, and extra-sensitivity to smell.   Ditambah pula flu and pening kepala tu kan.. Jadi, there’s a glint of hope within me, saying.. “This could be it.. this could be it”.

Alas, I guess, have to keep on hoping. and trying. and enjoying the trying part. haha.

Author’s note : moflo = monthly flow

Author’s note II : as si Syiqah wished, I have to censored that last part. Iye, adik ku yang tengok cerita Watchmen yg rated 18PL tu, geli geleman baca the last part. poyo kan? :p
