Continuing the anniversary countdown….

Unfortunately I’m not as artistic or creative as Azwaj to write him a song but I found this poem by Susan Leilani and I feel that it really describe the way I feel when Azwaj came into my life.. So this one is for you, my Love…

And Out of My Dreams Came You!
by Susan Leilani

Deep in the silence, one nightfall
When the moon sat still, shone bright,
Came the utterance of one single moonbeam
At my window… tapping, ever so light;

And in the flicker of one swift instant
I felt its warming embrace;
It encompassed me and then I trembled
As before me appeared your sweet face.

Then the radiance of that gentle smile,
The love shining soft in your eyes,
Began to penetrate with the moonlight
Straight through me, to deafen my cries.

Now, no longer am I ever lonely.
With each nightfall there’s you and love’s true:
In the darkness I seek out my moonbeam
And out of my dreaming… comes you!

Counting down to our 8th anniversary next month.. I thought it would be nice to retrace our love story.. our beginning I guess…

Me and Azwaj knew each other from a chat room. The Malaysian room to be exact. That room was always so active. Lots of activities, lots of chatters. So when I first joined the room, I had my own cliques, while he had his own. We would exchange greetings and that would be it.

But what fascinated me to him was that he would always “sing” in the room. What I mean is, he would type the lyrics to songs that were “in” at the time. One song that was a big hit that time was “I don’t want to miss at thing” by Aerosmith (that eventually became our song btw..) day he “PM” me and we started to chat…and chat…and chat.. and after some time we eventually started calling each other.

Then one day he told me he wrote me a song. Can you imagine my excitement? He said he would call me later that night to sing it to me… I was on cloud nine the whole day.

Here’s the lyrics to the song…. just a quick note though…my id was t@ti@n@ (just love the name, don’t know why) then and the song was in Malay..ok…hehehe

Tercipta suatu lagenda (So started a story)
Antara aku dan si dia (about me and her)
Tak pernah ku temui (someone I’ve not met)
Tak pernah ku kenali (someone I’ve not known)

Namun hatiku selalu bertanya (But my heart keep asking)
Siapakah gerangan si dia (who is she?)
Mencuri hatiku dalam bicara (the one who stole my heart with her words)
Mungkinkan mimpi ataupun nyata (is this truth of fantasy?)

Adakan aku bersandiwara (am I fantasizing?)
Mencari mimpi yg tiada nyata (searching for a dream?)
Mencari mu ohhh.. t@ti@n@ (searching for you.. t@ti@n@)

Sampaikan salam ku ini (send my regards to her)
Bukakan lah pintu hati (open up her heart)
Oohhh t@ti@n@…. (oh.. t@ti@n@)

***lyrics copyright protected

Now you tell me… What woman would not swoon after hearing that?? I literally had tears in my eyes as I was listening to him singing and strumming his guitar all the way from KL via phone.

It was a feeling that I’ve never felt before and I knew… I had fallen in love and this was to be my destiny….

After yesterday’s ranting and venting.. it’s time to find three things that I found pleasurable today:

  1. The smell of curry coming from the kitchen from my neighbour below. I wonder if they mind if I knocked on the door with a bowl in hand?? Lolzz;
  2. The sight of my clean floor after being vacuumed and mopped;
  3. Playing hide and seek with Aggie – she’s was meowing and calling me from the center of the room and when I went to pick her up, she started to run.. so we ended up playing hide and seek instead.. and here’s she is…
all panting after running
around with me….lolzz

I can’t please everyone and I can’t make everyone happy and most of all I can’t make everyone love me. So in sight of all these, sometimes I just have to sit back, take a pause and say thank you to you for all these feelings you stirred that is being pent up inside of me…

So thank you…

Thank you …

for making me feel like I don’t belong;
for making me feel like I don’t deserve to be in your company;
for ignoring me and making me totally uncomfortable;
and most of all…
for making me feel like an outsider!

I know it’s bad to wish this but I hope someone will return the favour to you 🙂

Have a good life…

I have always been curious when I blog hopped and see entries with the tag 3BT. I sort of understood the concept but I wanted to be sure. So today I decided to find out what it was all about.

The search brought me to a site called Three Beautiful Things. The idea is to write daily three things that have given you pleasure . I think it is a wonderful idea so here is what I found pleasurable today.

  1. Azwaj came home today saying that he does not need to work after all.. Yeay!!
  2. After six weeks of not eating any seafood, except fish because of my surgery, I ate a full plate of Char Kuay Teow minus the bean sprouts with lots of cockles and prawns. Yummy!!
  3. Anja looking all pretty again after her bath

Dear Diary..

Six weeks ago today, I went through my very first hospital stay. It was for a fibroid removal surgery. I always told myself that I would keep myself healthy so that I never need to be admitted to the hospital and the only reason I would is going to be for maternity purposes. Well, you know what? It was not quite for maternity reasons but I was admitted into the maternity ward! How coincidental is that right? You just have to laugh at the irony.

Anyway all went fine. Despite the two runaway threads adventure, I’ve healed wonderfully. No fever, no swelling, no pain. In fact, Abah actually called me “one tough nut”… I think he meant cookie…heheh… I was really touched with Abah and Mama kindness and love when I was there. For that I am thankful. My own mother is thousands of miles away so to know that you have family here too really feels good and heart warming.

So officially I am off the “pantang”. I actually had a piece of prawn last week just for a test drive and since there was no side effect, I have been itching to eat anything seafood and yesterday I did! I had prawn sambal! OOohhhhh it was delicious!!! I can never understand how people can be vegetarian and miss out on all these sinfully delightful meaty dishes! Oh well! Who am I to say anything right??

Oh I also took my first motorbike ride today to Azwaj’s office which is about a 10minutes ride from home. Again, just to test drive the stomach muscle. The verdict?? I’m cured!! Yahoo!! Alhamdullilah!!

Ok.. am off to bed now. Azwaj is again away tomorrow. I wonder what I’ll do ya?? Hmm Anja do you want a bath??

I am always on the lookout for new templates.. too bad I can’t create my own but I love tweaking what I can find. Anyway.. I simply fell in love with this one and after looking at and trying out several designs, I made up my mind. The header on this one is absolutely beautiful and so fitting for this blog so I decided.. this is it! Even Azwaj approved! Yeaysss..

What do you think??


Posted by LadyJava On February 21, 2008 No comments READ FULL POST

I do.. Really! Always have and always will.

This past week since Azwaj gotten this onsite job at the client’s, I decided that I will just hang around the house for a while. Yes, I am a housewife but most of my time is spent at Azwaj’s office coz he just can’t bear to be away from me..(yeah rite!..lolzzz).. Anyway that’s just the way it is. He would leave in the morning and come back in the afternoon to pick me up for lunch and I would stay at the office till whatever time he leaves, which can even be in the wee hours of the morning…

Since last week however, he has been stuck at TTDI for this major project that he’s gotten just before the Chinese New Year and since I can’t jolly well hang around at the client’s place, I stayed home instead.

And I absolutely loved it. You know, so many of my SG relatives and friends were absolutely surprised that I can actually be a housewife knowing how I was before I moved here. They were all like “aren’t you kids some more!”. My answer now and is.. “hello!.. if you can’t enjoy your own company, how can other people enjoy yours?” and that normally shut them up..lolzz.

But seriously. I enjoy my own company. I have so many things that I want to that I simply can’t do when Azwaj is around. Things like putting on my facial mask, putting on henna on my fingers or simply just putting a peel on my nose for that darn blackheads! Not that I can’t be myself when I am with him.. but it’s just a woman thing that I do to be pretty.. No need for him to know the process and as far as he’s concern.. I always look lovely…lolzz..

And there’s always that time when I just want to relax in front of the tv to watch the programs I love like Travel and Living or the AFC or E! Channels on Astro.. channels that he won’t normally want to watch and I always let him win with the remote control (aren’t I the good wife?!…lolzz!)…

So last week had been great.. this week I pretty much have fallen into a routine…Next week? Who knows?? I love being with Azwaj too!!! Lolzzzz!

I have never been one to sleep in the afternoon. In fact I avoid it like the plague simply because I always wake up feeling groggy and more tired than I actually was.

Afternoon naps are only for when I am not feeling well, late nights – which means I literally sleep at dawn, or just because it’s a lazy day, which I don’t have very often. Anyway, today, after Azwaj left for work, I was still feeling sleepy but because I had loadful of laundry in the washing machine, I wanted to wait it out first before deciding whether I was going to return to my comfy bed or not. That was around 10am.

While waiting for my laundry to complete it’s cycle, I vacuumed the floor and reheat the grilled chicken that was going to be lunch today. I thought, ok with all these activities, I will, for sure, be wide awake. I was wrong, coz even coffee did not help, not that it ever did anyway..lolzz.

I took Miss Fly to the living room and watched tv for a while while eating my grilled chicken sandwich. I watched Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres show followed by the Bold and The Beautiful. After that I surrendered, coz my back was beginning to hurt and I was still darn sleepy. I packed up everything from the living room and adjourned to the waiting bed. Just so you know this was around 4pm.

The next thing I knew, Azwaj was entering the bedroom! It was already 8pm! I was totally knocked out! I did not even hear the phone call from him to ask what I wanted for dinner.

Now that’s what I call deep slumber. I guess your body will tell you what it needs.. and in this case… SLEEP!!!

Sometimes in life we take for granted that everything is going to go fine. When something bad happens, you believe it is always to someone else. Well wake up call today for me.

It was around 7pm today. I just finished my shower after taking a break from my DVD marathon of Cashmere Mafia when there was a loud knock on my door. Upon checking it was Sally, our neighbour who told me that there was a fire on the 11th floor. “Prepare to leave!” she said.

I got ready, grabbed my important paperwork and called Azwaj, who had to work today. He told me to get ready and he’s coming home. The next thing on my mind was our kitties. There are six of them. What do I do if I really to leave the apartment? I can’t leave them here, all locked up with no where to go. A thousand and one things went through my mind. Ideas on how to get them to safety in case the fire really spread. OMG! The thought that I might have to leave them behind, unprotected, really scare me. The best thing I can do is just let them come out with me and hope they would follow me down the stairs and hope someone will be nice enough to help me carry them down.

Luckily, the fire was not serious and was put off easily and any crisis was averted. Alhamdullilah!

However, this incident really put things in perspective. We need an evacuation plan, not just for us but also for the kitties. Will talk to Azwaj tonight when he comes home.

Valentine’s Day.. ahh.. the day of love for so many and yet I’ve never been one to celebrate it. In fact even when I was with my first boyfriend, we both decided that the event was over commercialized and decided not to celebrate it.

Now, with Azwaj, it is just another day. Just a day when lovers all over the world spend money needlessly to show their love for one another. Sadly it is always the women that makes such a fuss about it and it’s the men that just follow along with it to pacify their otherwise paranoid significant other.

I personally don’t have anything against the day. It is a wonderful concept to celebrate love. I mean there’s a day for everything else. There’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Teacher’s Day and I even celebrated Secretarial Day, although that one was more like a Secretarial Week! So No, I don’t have anything against it. Who can? It’s a day for love!

So, nothing happened today at our household for this day and it is alright with me. In fact, Azwaj only came back home from work at around 9pm bearing food for dinner. We spent a nice time eating dinner and discussing the day events.

Yes, it was a nice Valentine’s Day. It was a nice normal day 🙂

I decided today to just sit and reflect back on my life these seven years.

The reason why I’m doing this is because our wedding anniversary is coming soon. It’s going to be eight years on March, 25th! Eight wonderful years! It has it’s ups and downs of course. I’d be in self-denial if I did not admit that. However, on the whole, the sweetness outweigh any bitterness that exist.

Wow, seven years ago, I married this wonderful man that I’ve only known for one and half years. It was such a whirlwind romance because of our distance. Me, a born and bred Singaporean and he a full pledged Bumiputera Malaysian. We got to know one another from, you guessed it, cyber world.

I remember I was a late bloomer in the chatting world. I only started chatting at the age of twenty nine and that also because I was crazy over the boyband “Boyzone“. They were having this chat session and boy did I want to be there to chat with Ronan Keating. Anyway that’s a different story although but that the start of my chatting adventure. I was introduced to Yahoo and it pager and from then on, I was hooked. I found this Malaysian room that was really buzzing with action and I was chatting every opportunity I got.

And there he was and there I were. We started chatting and the next thing we knew, we met, we fell in love and the rest, like they say, is history.

How have I changed since getting married?

  1. I’ve grown to be more mellow. That’s the first obvious thing you would noticed about me. I, no longer lose my temper as easily as before. Oh I’m still temperamental and sulk sometimes but it has gone down a 80% notch.
  2. I am also more patient or forced to be patient. Where before it’s now, now, now. I am now more willing to go with “in a while” kind of thing.
  3. I’ve leant the fundamentals of being a wife like cooking, washing, cleaning house. Back when I was single, all these chores were done for me by my mom. Yeap, I was a spoilt brat. I would come home and my dinner would already been served on the table. I did not do any housework at all. And to avoid ironing, my pet peeve when it comes to household, I always made sure I got clothes that require none or very little ironing. The rest just goes to the Mr Laundry Man..lolzz
  4. I am more careful with my money. As I am no longer financial independent, I tend to think and rethink before I purchase anything. Before, I was such a terrible shopper. I see something I like and I will buy it immediately. I was also such an impulse buyer as well. I am no longer like that anymore.
  5. I now think for two. It’s no longer me only anymore. I don’t make decision without consulting Azwaj and I don’t even want to. I want any decision to be made only when we both know what’s happening or I won’t feel good otherwise

Hmm… I guess that’s a lot in seven years. Who knows what else I’ll change in the future when perhaps there’s three or four of us in the picture… By then, I’ll look back at this entry and smile and add more things I’m sure 😉

This is the year of the Rat for the Chinese. And from what I read, it’s not a year that favor me, a Rooster. Everywhere I read, I’m supposed to save up, not splurge and take it easy.

Luckily for me though, I don’t believe in horoscope! Otherwise I am in trouble. However that being said, I think I will take it easy this year on the spending area of my life that is. This year is as good as any to start saving for those rainy days! On the other hand, it is a fantastic year for Azwaj who is a Monkey! I guess it balances thing eh!

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

The year of the Rat promises good fortune for everyone. The Chinese believe that the rat are a bunch of hardworking animals and that means good business for everyone.

It’s looking good for hubby’s business as well. He landed a big project involving not only sales but also networking setup and maintenance contract early this month and the project is underway already.

And that is why, I’m blogging from his office right now coz he’s working on five pc’s which is due for delivery on Monday and I am keeping him company while he’s there.

Looks like a hectic Chinese New Year break for both of us!

Don’t you just love February??!! It’s the month of love, who does not love that! Even though I personally don’t celebrate it simply because I believe love should be celebrated all year round, I still can’t help but get into the spirit. I mean who wouldn’t with all the cute stuff floating around in real and cyber world.

So how apt that this new blog is born in this love month.

Welcome to my blog 🙂
