ear pain : ep 1

I went to work. Around 8.45am I went to clinic nearby called Allan & Gunstensen. My ear was getting on my nerve. It didn’t hurt but keep beeping as fast as the heartbeat for almost a week. It made me couldn’t sleep last night. I went to see Doctor Sukumaran. He was a very good doctor. I told him about my 4 problems. My right ear, my skin disease (it was insect bite but last for months!), my shaking hands (I had refer to 2 other clinics before but they told me it was nothing serious) and my headache that happen all in sudden. He told me that the ear was just fine, the wax on the right ear is way too much compare to the left one -- it blocks and that's why I got that beeping sound. So he gave me medicine, I need to drop into my right ear about 4 drops twice a day and I’ve to see him again on Thursday for further checking. The shaking hand was about tremor. He said nothing to worry about since many people has this problem. He gave me pills to take half each time twice a day. About my insect bite, doctor said it was actually eczema -- kind of skin disease. I was speechless. Last was about the headache, he told me that it was just dizziness. He gave me panadol for that. Perhaps, he was right since I couldn’t sleep caused by the ear beeping non-stop.

The great news was about my niece. Doctor has confirmed that no problem with her platelet anymore, it was just virus and she is just fine now :)


Sushi anyone? Hehe to tell you the truth, I'm not fan of sushi but I love to try anything that can be eaten in the world (Yes halal ones of course :P)

So these were sushi that I tried. Taste funny but at least I know how the taste is :)


They bought bouncer at last. The bouncer cost around RM70 and the balance they bought shirt for Puteri and hats :) (remember I gave money to my sis before?)

She looked so adorable.

bbq party

I worked overtime yesterday from 10am to 2pm. Finished all the medical bills and went home. Reached home had lunch and rested for a while. Started at 5pm, we moved tables and chairs. Around 7pm we started to burn the coals and grilled the chicken, potatoes and satay. Other dishes like bihun goreng, honey dew, nasi impit, lemang and rendang. I’d say all the food were so mouth-watering! (but urgh, to grill them were tiring and hot!)

We finish around 3am (I know you won't believe this) after roughly around 100 people came. I was so tired, didn’t eat much though and right after we cleared the rubbish and brought back those tables and chairs in the house I showered and slept.

kitaro concert 30th nov 2007

I'm still looking for friend who wants to go to Genting Highlands on 30th November for Kitaro’s concert. I had miss the chance to see Richard Clayderman concert and to miss this opportunity for Kitaro is impossible. Anyone interested? Let me know :)

raya celebration by ppn

Today Pejabat Pengarah Negeri (PPN) had a party for Inland Revenue Board, Penang. The menu were delicious -- soto, rendang, nasi impit, laksa, ketupat and some raya cookies. Special thanks to all of them for the great hospitality.

Office was boring and worse when I’ve to sing with the choir group from 3-5pm. Urgh!

Went back at 6:15pm and stuck in jam for 2 hours. I really hate when they do work on the bridge, it’ll ruin the whole highway!

malay dilemma

I borrowed a book from my colleague titled “Malay Dilemma” by Tun Dr. Mahathir. This is the book I was searching for weeks. I’ll update this blog as soon as I finish :)

hotel checking

Today I went to Grand Paradise Hotel with my boss for rooms checking and facilities for course. It was a good hotel with fish-bone’s structure. Meaning, all the rooms facing the sea ;)

The Sale Assistant Manager treated us lunch and it was quite ok. I ate Nasi Goreng Kampung (with fried chicken, satay and crackers) with pineapple juice.

Nothing much today, was bored at office.

uncle warded

On my way home with mom, we got sms from Kak Su that my uncle Pak Chak was warded at Pantai Hospital. We went there straight as they never delay on any of us when we were in trouble or warded. So I agree with “What goes around comes around” :)

My uncle was still in his lately condition, couldn’t talk right and even walk properly. Doctor detected block in his brain that could heading to stroke. Uncle should rest in ward and blood sample will be taken tomorrow morning after fasting for 10 hours. He told me he got vision problem all in sudden; his right eye.

We went home around 8 and bought dinner -- char koey teow and fried rice somewhere nearby the house.

lim goh tong

One of my idols Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong has passed away (the owner of Genting Highlands). Even though I haven’t read his book but the way he grabbed the chance was really amazing. He died at age 90 and left 14.6 billions assets. How incredible? He migrated from Fujian China to Malaysia with RM665 and a suitcase. He was the 3rd richest man in Malaysia before he died.

He’ll be my idol forever. Rest in peace…

I bought spirulina for my sister. Hopefully the baby can get the benefit from it even though not 100%.

Here is info about spirulina that attract my attention :

“Spirulina contains unusually high amounts of protein, between 55 and 77% by dry weight, depending upon the source. It is a complete protein, containing all essential amino acids, though with reduced amounts of methionine, cysteine, and lysine, as compared to standard proteins such as that from meat, eggs, or milk. It is, however, superior to all standard plant protein, such as that from legumes.[6][7]

properties investment

I'm looking forward to buy a house in Penang. The 1st house would be a flat. Not for living but for properties investment/trading. I’ll update the blog if there’s anything new about it.

life never easy

I was still not really in the mood to work. Yeah I know, I shouldn’t be this way but I just couldn’t help. Go to work every morning, thinks that you get paid equally even though you work your ass so hard is really killing me. No appetite and just ate few pieces of lemang brought by Linda (together with chicken rendang) for the whole day; it was delicious I’d say. Heavy rain poured the whole day. Around 4.30pm I got news that it was flooding in my living area. Urgh! Pathetic. My house won't be sank by the flood since it’s a little high from others. But the entrance to my housing area… it has 2 entrance but both full with water. So, I did overtime rather than stuck in the water for hours. Some of my friends were there with me too at the office. Heavy rain, came by bike, what do you expect? We ordered fast food, yes what else better idea than that? Mc Donalds of course. Went back around 8.30pm and I reached home around 9pm. As soon as I reached home, I felt asleep.

Woke up around 11pm and ran for shower (yes I need to shower anyway). Rest for a while and I couldn’t sleep, yes you know why. Mom told me that Puteri Balqis Ibtisam name should be changed (for some reasons given by my aunty in Muar referring to the clergy), which I didn’t agree. But who am I to comment? I had a conversation with Bob about life, business, family matter and financial problem that my family facing now. I think I’ll be the one who look older than anyone in my family as I want them all to be happy and problem free as they wish. But I'm not a superman. Sometimes I felt sad that I’ve tried my best but nothing I could change. This really stresses me. I hate financial problem or worse to worse wallet cancer which I never face this but my family. I’ll try to help them but it’s up to them to choose their life.

Right now, I'm 100% working on info about TTP, how do you get it and how to cure it.

puteri warded ep : 2

Puteri’s 2nd day in hospital. I was still worry about her. I tried to find more info about her disease; through internet and friends. I’ll gather more info about it and will find way to cure her. Even she is my niece; I treat her like my own daughter. I love her so much and hope she will be fine soon. My relatives came to visit her -- Mak Chak, Kak Su, Pak Chak, Abg Izan, Kak Ilah, Kak Chak, Abg Chak and the kids. We went home around 9pm and stopped a while at KFC. Mom didn’t have much money, I know. So the meals were on me. If she’s happy, I’d be happy too. Bob came back and reach airport around 10am, then he went straight to the hospital to see Puteri. We’re still worry about Puteri…

Puteri's un-happy face

On the way to hospital

In the hospital

puteri warded ep : 1

We planned to go to my cousin’s open house (he’s the YB though) but cancelled at last minute. My niece had been warded. Her parent brought her to the kid specialist early in the morning and the doctor suspected either low yellow blood (thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP)) or liver problem since she got few red spots on the face and it’s a bit reddish in the mouth (I suppose it’s itchy since she didn’t cry much showing soreness or something). The doctor referred her to General Hospital but we refused to go there as it’d be very slow and we hate long queue. So we went to the private hospital; Lam Wah Ee Hospital. She had been warded at 2nd class ward. They took blood sample and the reddish spot in the mouth sample using the cotton bud. Around 10pm the result came out. Low yellow blood (thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP)) -- which she should has 150 but she just got 15. They pump some yellow blood into her around 10.30pm. I went for late dinner around 9pm at Deen Nasi Kandar with my youngest sister and her friend Hadi. Bought sister bihun goreng and rice with beef, finger lady and boiled egg. I hope Puteri will be fine tomorrow and could be discharged.

We reached home around 11pm luckily I still manage to watch Arsenal and Chelsea game (I watched Liverpool game at the restaurant too hehe). Congratulation to Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool for winning the today’s game. Not to forget Man Utd with big win over Aston Villa 4-1. Glory Man Utd!!

old but sweet

These are some old photos I found in all4one’s forum. Sweet memories :)

Years ago in modeling :P

Minden, Germany

night life

Went out with colleague last night around 12. Met them at Frenz (somewhere in Crystal Point) -- it was a rock café. There I got the Unity Band which I was searching around for months. It wasn’t enough and we continued the excitement at Homes (I can’t give you the road names as I'm not good at it :P), in town. It was a dangdut club, didn’t really suit my taste but the fun with friends counted. After the fun, we went to Kassim Mustafa for breakfast I suppose :P I ate maggie goreng. Reached home at 4am. Hangover…

Takdir and Firdaus at Frenz, Crystal Point

This is really funny :D They put it in the toilet

The Unity Band!! Yay~

longan ribena sparkling

Bob’s recipe. He mixed ribena with sparkling water and add some longan. Trust me it really taste good! I was half-asleep and I could still drink a lot :)

toasted oat

Bob bought toasted oat for breakfast. It’s kind of cereals mixed with wild berries -- strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. I ate it with low fat milk and it was delicious. Try it if you love cereals :)

pizza hut

We went to Pizza Hut around 9pm. We ordered a lot -- 1 regular pizza & 1 large pizza (Super Supreme and Hawaiian Chicken -- I prefer pepperoni with cheese :P), mushroom soup, chicken wings (I prefer prawn tempura :P), salads and some cheese sticks. I didn’t eat much though. I've no appetite lately, no idea why. Perhaps tiredness or just no appetite. Some people would think I'm on diet :)

Puteri was with us and she looked happy :) I've fun at pizza though. And not to forget thanks to Bob for the treat :)

the seeker

Yesterday I came back from work and rest for a while. Joseph bought the tickets in the afternoon so that we don’t need to queue up at night. Bob, Joseph and I went to Queensbay Mall around 8.30pm and reached there around 9pm. The parking was full. The show was in the smaller cinema, not as I expected. The movie (The Seeker) was so so. I gave 3 out of 5 stars for rating.

insect bite marks

I’ve been worried about the insect bite mark for months. It happen 4 places on my body -- right thumb, left wrist and 2 marks on my abs. I'm not sure whether I should go to see the skin specialist or not. Currently I start to use the cream given by the skin specialist for my forehead in August.

2nd& 3rd raya

Went to maklong’s house on 2nd raya. She served mee goreng and bihun goreng. After that we went straight to maklong’s house (this is dad’s eldest sis). There everybody was there. 1st time I met new paklang (a policeman, what do you expect). It was fun had a conversation with abang long and wan. Yeah not really have time to visit them some other times, busy with works and weekends are the only days left for my own thing.

3rd raya went to market with mom to buy stuff for lontong. Rained few times today and nothing much to write about today. Paksu and family came and Nurul’s friends.

It’s Bob’s birthday today and we plan to celebrate at KFC, in Bayan Baru. But I’m still full haha. Maybe I can eat salad there :P

Thinking of going to work tomorrow is really pain in the ass haha!

hari raya

The day went well but it was quite bored during the day time. Around 5pm we went to Mak Ngah and Mak Chak’s house. Around 10pm they came to our house. This is like a routine since grandma still alive :) I wish she was with us enjoying the day.

The foods were various and mouth-watering, really. Next tiring day would be on 27th --BBQ party! Haha :)

selamat hari raya [eid mubarak]

Again we celebrate our biggest occasion in Malaysia -- Hari Raya. So, I’ll take this opportunity to wish all Moslem in Malaysia, in fact in the whole world, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Forgive me if there’s anything I said wrong, I did wrong, sarcasm and misunderstood. On this blessed day, I also forgive others including my parent, family, relatives and friends.

flu & bouncer

I got another strike of flu last night. It was the worst. There was no cough but the cold was terrible. Urgh!

Bob was still here. I bet he didn't feel like going back, just the matter of "have to".

Daddy bought some fresh crabs. It was so delicious, hardly describe in words though. Yummy! Even though the flu killed my taste of food (it really killed my appetite seriously) I still could taste the sweetness in the crab :P

Right after dinner, I took Bob to the airport. As soon as I reached home, have a little conversation with mom and I felt asleep.

Andy is going back today and last night was the last night for him. We didn’t manage to meet as I'm still got flu and he shouldn’t be infected as he needs to fly to other country as well. Not to have vacation in sickness.

I still couldn’t find time to buy something special for Puteri. I didn’t want to buy shirts as it’s so common. Mom told me that they (sis and bro in law) wanted to go out and buy a bouncer for Puteri. So, I hurriedly see my sis and gave her a hundred buck. At last, I got her something that she could remember when she’s getting older :)

the golden compass

I've finished with 1st episode of His Dark Materials -- The Golden Compass. Today I still caught in flu which cause no flavor in food at all. Ewww..! (yeah, be grateful as the cough and cold not much as anoyying as days before).

En't much to write about for today. I beter get going with the 2nd episode The Subtle Knife before my bed time. Ciao...

Monday, October 08, 2007


Oh great… I’ve flu today. Woke up early morning for breakfast (we eat before we fast) and found out I’ve cold, sore throat, a little bit of cough and middling fever. This isn’t a good thing, but luckily I've finished with my budget that boss gave to me last Friday (I went overtime on Saturday, remember?). Text my boss and she didn’t go to work as well as she has fever plus she got 2 days leaves. Since the weather isn’t accurate and unpredictable it’s nothing outlandish that everybody falls sick including mom and sister. I’ll go to clinic around 9am since they open at 9.30am. Catch up later…

fun fast-break dinner

Sister’s family stayed here since yesterday (Saturday). I know she loves to stay here, in her family, enjoy the conversation. Nothing much I did today rather than reading. Yeah, I missed Puteri a lot too.

Miza came here for fast-break dinner. It was fun that she joined the dinner. Sweet memories re-played :)

She also brought along the laundry paperwork which put a big smile on my face :)
Yeah, at least I got the picture of how the business would be.

Watched soccer Arsenal and Liverpool games. Boring ones I’d say.

Took her home around 9pm. Thanks for joining the dinner yah :)

United 4 Wigan 0

Carlos Teves opened United’s account eight minutes into the second period, before Christiano Ronaldo netted a double and Wayne Rooney wrapped up the scoring. The Red Devil’s sixth straight league win did come at a price with the loss through injury of Louis Saha before the match and Nemanja Vidic and John O’Shea during it.

Hail Man Utd!!!
