Chimmi Churri Cherating

Hey guys! doing good? Gonna share with you about my last month trip with my buddy Ain Radhi. Sorry am a bit slow on my writing lately. So here you go a beach trip on Deepavali weeks. A trip that definitely i wont forget because i gained more weight!LOL so many things happen before we went there. But who cares, as long as we had fun while exploring the city. We didnt really put down our leg near the place we stay, we went all around including Kemaman in Terengganu.

First, the place we stay called Mandurah. Sounds Indian name right? Because its Deepavali! Is a nice place to stay, quite environment, i can even swim in the sea but the water is a bit yellow-ish tho. But at the end of the day am so happy because i got to meet sand beaches, sound of waves and ocean breeze after my Miri trip last May.

The next day, after breakfast. I really wanted to go to this place call Ombok. Some kind of a small cafe own by the local, they also have surfing shop and they also coach people how to surf, and also renting surfboards. Was planning to go for a surf this time. Sadly, waves is not here yet. This lady from the shop told us that we can come later early November towards December. Damn i was a bit excited when i reached that place but too bad Fatin, you should plan properly next time. Kudos! but its okay, we do had the best soft pancakes they served with butter and honey. nyums!

Pocket camera, go pro, phones, you name it. All this gadgets is in our hands all the time. Snap pictures here and there. We even went to this one beach call Monica Bay or local named it as Pantai Mok Nik. It’s been awhile i didnt go to this beach, usually we went for Sata, Keropok Lekor, Mee Calung, and some other things its from the local delicacies. You should try at this place call Che Wan! in Kemaman, different states already its in Terengganu. Sata is one of my favorite even though i dont take fish but this one is acceptions. Than on the way back we had a Mee Calung Sup Tulang. Nahhh i dont like it! its kinda sweet, i could not take it.

Am gonna continue later, need to upgrade my storage! Good bye for now!

I Don’t Get Attached Easily, So If I Make An Effort, You Really Mean Something To Me

Good Morning! Today am on blue baju kurung, red lipstick, listening to TGiF track on Spotify, having my hot black coffee while writing this. Such a nice weather outside to do some activities. Read this & enjoy your Friday folks 🙂

I keep my distance from most people. I don’t let myself get close to anyone. I try not to get too invested. I’m not the kind of person who says I love you before getting to know you. I’m not the kind of person who daydreams about marriage after the first date. I’m not the kind of person who uses words like soulmate and forever.

I have high standards for myself and for everyone around me. I don’t get attached easily. So if I make an effort with you by texting first and dropping compliments and inviting you out, then that means you actually matter to me. It means you are an exception.

Most people won’t see that vulnerable side of me. They will have their texts ignored because I don’t feel like answering. They will hear me make excuses for why I can’t hang out today, and no, not tomorrow either.

I will push most people out of my life before they really get to know me. I will keep my secrets close to my chest so that no one discovers the truth. I will try my hardest to form a protective bubble around me, keeping out anyone who could hurt me.

I’m not the kind of person who is always in a relationship. I’m not the kind of person who tells strangers my life story. I’m not the kind of person who is comfortable wearing my heart on my sleeve.

For me, little acts of kindness are actually huge steps. It’s a big deal if I put on nice clothes and travel to see you instead of telling you I’m too busy to hang out. It’s a big deal if I text back in two seconds instead of forgetting my phone has any notifications. It’s a big deal if I lean in for a hug instead of awkwardly waving goodbye to you. I don’t do those things with most people. I don’t let myself get close to people.

If I actually make an effort with you, then you must be important to me. You must have made an impact. You must be different from the rest.

If I actually make an effort with you, then I’m hoping that you will make an effort with me, too. I’m hoping that you will feel the same way that I feel. I’m hoping that you will help me see that trusting others isn’t always the worst idea.

If I actually make an effort with you, I hope you don’t take my kindness for granted. I hope you don’t assume that I flirt with everyone like this — because that is far from the truth.

Most of the time, I have no problem cutting people out of my life. I feel like the world is easier when I am walking alone.

But I’m making an effort with you, because you are worth it. Because, even though I hate pretty much everyone around me, you’re one of the rare people that I actually want around.

Could it be love?

Kau datang dan jantungku berdegup kencang
Kau buatku terbang melayang
Tidak ku sangka getaran ini ada
Saat jumpa yang pertama

Mataku tak dapat terlepas darimu
Perhatikan setiap tingkahmu
Tertawa pada setiap candamu
Tersenyum pada setiap lirikan matamu

Could it be love?
Could this be something that I never had?
Could it be love?
Mungkinkah ini cinta?

We would roll down the rapids, to find a wave that fits

Hey there, hows things going on? I’ve been busy with works lately. I don’t think i can commit to such workloads. But hell yeah, this too shall pass. And some stuff stuck in my mind currently. I just agreed to this article about a high quality woman that you should consider. Enjoy!

When she inspires you to reach your true potential and to achieve greater things without being too demanding about it. She won’t force you to pursue the things you should because she trusts you enough to know that you’ll take the right decisions.

When she doesn’t play childish games or make attempts to get you jealous. She doesn’t have any insecurities about her relationship. She knows what she’s worth and she doesn’t feel the need to keep proving it to you or to herself.

When she doesn’t act like the whole world revolves around her. She wants love and respect from you and she’s willing to offer you the same. She won’t expect you to suppress your own desires just to keep her happy all the time.
When she doesn’t need you to be present in her life 24/7. She understands that you’re both two independent individuals who have a life outside of this relationship as well. You both give each other ample space and time to invest in your friends, family and career.

When you’ve never felt anxious about taking her to meet any of your friends or even your parents, for that matter. You’re aware that she can carry herself well and interact with all kinds of people. She’s wise enough to know what topics to discuss with your parents and when she’s with your friends, she can let loose and enjoy a good time.

When she knows how to take care of herself. She never wanted a relationship just so she could depend on someone for all kinds of physical, financial and mental support. No, she was in this to enjoy your company as an equal, to split all the bills, and to make sure that one person in the relationship isn’t being over-burdened.

When her social media presence is not something that she’ll ever need to hide or be embarrassed about. She knows how to present herself in front of people, whether it’s in person or on a computer screen.

When she is never shy in the bedroom. If there’s something that she doesn’t or does want to do, she’ll come right out and say it. She’ll even explain her reasons for it instead of just getting awkward. She doesn’t act like your intimacy is something to be hidden and never talked about. She’s mature enough to accept it as a completely normal and healthy part of your relationship, the part that actually keeps the spark alive between you two.

When she has strong opinions on almost every topic. And she’ll never shy down from expressing them just to avoid arguments or to keep everyone happy. But this doesn’t mean that she’ll ever impose those opinions on you or anyone else. She is open to discussions and any disagreement you have won’t turn into a raging battle.

If you have a fight or an argument, she won’t to try to end it by stating stereotypes like ‘all men are the same’ or ‘you men can’t ever understand us’. She realizes that every situation is different and you need to discuss the cause behind your fight rather than trying to put each other down with generalized statements.

When she is sure about her purpose in life. She has defined goals and benchmarks for herself and they won’t get affected by any obstacles that come her way.
You feel like the luckiest guy in the world when you’re with her. Because one thing you’re sure of is that someone as amazing as her wouldn’t just date any guy. She is a strong independent woman and she isn’t afraid of being alone, so she must really like you if she has chosen to share her life with you!

E.i.d

Hello from my work desk. Replying email’s, still working while most people out there already gone to their home town. Hows your preparation for Eid this year? everything is great? you better be! i just realize something from last night text with my girl Pam. She migrate to London with her husband around last two months, she is Malaysian and i believed she enjoy all the festive season all around we’ve been celebrated in Malaysia as a multi-cultural country. The main conversation is about my home address. She was asking for it. Than, suddenly is just came up in my mind there is when she said “damn that’s very tempting” when i said you’ll get money packets if you visit me on Eid 🙂 that’s cute. is just that i realize something i would have been grateful all this year’s been spending time & celebrating with my parents and family with all festive season like Eid, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Christmas definitely! and others small occasions too. I mean all this happen only in Malaysia. I just feeling a little upset when we can’t have the festive vibes when you are not at your home. Home mean your own country that fill with loves. But i know she will enjoy more over that side. Feeling a bit patriotic i guess? LOL

While waiting for my office to announce the early release, (i have no idea if they will), writing nonsense is not a bad idea at all 😀 To all folks, whether local or outstation, hope you guys have a safe journey back home and from the very bottom of my heart, i would like to wish all Muslims who celebrating Eid al-Fitr this year a Selamat Hari Raya, wishing the rest have a great holidays! I will be off the rest of the week. I’ll hang “do not disturb” sign in just few more hours! Enjoy folks!

Vacay : Sri Lanka

Hello everyone, how are you? Been busy with work lately, no time to update anything in here. I talked about a trip about a month ago right? so here i am writing about it. So i went to Sri Lanka on the month of April. A very short trip, i would say yes if my friends want to extend but sadly i have to comeback to my mom, i don’t want to miss her birthday. The plan was at first, my ex colleague Pam, remember? she having her wedding reception in Sri Lanka. So i decided, to call up my friends who would like to go with me on a trip to Lanka to be my wedding partner. We planned this like a few months back like since last year. Since Pam told me she inviting me to her wedding and i was so shocked because it will be in Sri Lanka, who on earth will thought am accepting her invites and really looking forward for the trip.

Firstly, you know how i am if i really get exited for the things that is confirmed especially on a trip like this. I would never have Sri Lanka in my list, but this time why not? I make Pam’s wedding receptions as a point for me to fly to Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is a place where you can find a very friendly people, clean street, most of the cars are hybrid cars, love the facts where the communication is not a problem, as you know they used English, easy to communicate with the local, but not when you trying to negotiate or cursed them or talked bad about them while you with your friends LOL but not that you know we hate or disliked them, because they are nicest people! Really, from the city to the suburbs, they are really kind. I never expected Lanka is this nice. I mean i experienced the most wonderful place.

We arrived Lanka on the night before the reception. Reception took place in Weligama, on the South Coast area. We spend the night in Colombo City, Bunkyard Hostel. Most of the guess who stayed here are backpackers, just like the 4 of us. We already pre-booked all the stayed before we fly by using Booking.com. I think this is the most convenient website for hotel booking in anywhere you go. They either charged you at the hotel itself or direct to your debit/credit card. This place where we stayed on the first night charged us on the time we checked-in. So we pay by US Dollar. We already put a side for hotels. A tips, please look at currency first before you make a payment by using their local currency. I think most of it cheaper by using US Dollar if you are from Malaysia, but if you are from other country am not so sure about it. Our room is double bunk bed, the room is spacious, with our own toilet and bathroom and also balcony. Wi-fi at the highest signal when you are at their common space downstairs. Our room is just on the first floor anyway. You can just feel free to used their common space, kitchen, and dining. They served mix kinda breakfast (local/western), we have it with all other guess as well. Our bed is very comfy, we really had a good sleep that night. Because of time different, we are a bit of jet lag that night. So we slept a bit late where we need to get up early the next morning to catch a cab to go down the south. Owh not to mentioned, the next door was an art gallery, i definitely go if they are open, sadly they are not.

Next day, we have to rushed for the wedding reception where we don’t want to miss it. That’s the main reason why we were there. So we asked the same driver from last night cab to bring us to Weligama. Its about a 3 hours drive from Colombo City. The journey exactly like our back home highway with green-ish view from the city to the place we supposed to go. Really, as far we are from the city, we doesn’t feel the hassle since we arrived in Lanka. This place make me wanna come back for more. So when we arrived to the place we stayed, they called it We Escape. A place i called heaven on earth. I would never hate any of the place in Lanka. I felt in love right away when i saw this place. Love the carvings, love the colonial white building, love the environment, love the hospitality, love the services everything. This place also famous with backpackers while they called it poshtel. Spend a night here, make me regret not to stay longer. Anyway, this place is very near to the beach. I took a surf lesson the next day. It cost me LKR 2000. Overall 2 hours per lesson. A list that i need to checked. Am a happy girl!

After we arrived in We Escape, we get ready for the Wedding Reception. Just the 2 of us. It’s a very small and close occasions. Its a bout 40 pax only. Again i felt in love with the villa this time. A place called Eraeliya Villas and Gardens, about 5 minutes from our stay. We took tuk tuk to go there. how cool right? We asked the hotel to get us a tuk tuk. While you view all the photos, i will continue this post some other time, because am freaking sleepy right now! good night adios!

Hey, am back! okay so lets talk about the weeding. It’s my dream wedding, to have it by the beach, with the sound of waves, sunset, ocean breeze, close friends and family. Is like a dream come true to attended this kind of wedding reception. Thank you Pam for having me! such a lovely wedding with lovely couple. Congratulations again!Hope to see you again next year when you come back from UK 🙂

Than the next day,we decided to go back to Colombo city by a train. Why not? Such an awesome view from Weligama to Colombo with almost 4 hours train ride. Very rustic kinda train still using steamer. An open window train, no air-cond just a small lil fan on top. What an experienced. I would love to do this again.

Once we arrived Colombo, right away take a tuk tuk to go to our next stay called Moss Colombo. Located at very serene area, white color building with green here and there. Love the services, and comfy bed and breakfast too! We got the best serviced while we are in Lanka. This place we took two rooms. One double bed and one king bed. Attached toilet, that’s the most important thing.

We have the whole day for us to go round town this time. So we went for a coffee, walked along Colombo University, souvenir shop, shopping mall, stadium, tasted the best Briyani in town according to the local, visited some memorial parks where the local usually do picnics and heritage buildings. Am in love with this city, even i don’t quite enjoy city for a vacation. It’s a good and amazing experienced that i will not get from other places. Thank you Sri Lanka, you do good! See you next round!
