The Difference of Biodegradable, Degradable and Compostable.


let's face it - whether we like it or not, plastic plays a major role in our life.

it's inevitable.

yes. we do love our world and we want to protect it too.

but to buy a cotton bag or whatever recycle bags that we have in market is not enough.


why did we buy plastics in the first place?

i don't know about you but for me, i use it so that i can get rid off of it after finish using it.



example:

for picnic/party :
plastic plates, cups, food container and most importantly, dustbin plastic bag.


ha. itu baru cakap pasal kegunaan plastik masa piknik/party.

belum lagi pasal everyday use.


kesimpulannya, we need plastic in our life to make things easy.

so how are we supposed to use plastic without endangering our earth?

the answer is: BIO-BAG!


WHAT.THE.HECK.IS.BIO.BAG?, u might ask.


so people,to answer your question, today i'm gonna talk about BIODEGRADABLE.


read further below.


source


the difference of:
Biodegradable, Degradable and Compostable Plastic Bag.



Biodegradable Plastics


Biodegradable products break down through the action of a naturally occurring microorganism,
such as bacteria, fungi etc. over a period of time. These products are usually made from plant or animal sources.

Examples of biodegradable include paper, vegetable scraps and some forms of plastics made from ingredients such as corn starch.


There are some disadvantages to biodegradable waste.

When dumped in landfills, it's often dug under where the "good" bacteria can't survive in the oxygen depleted environment. It then breaks down under anaerobic conditions which creates methane, a greenhouse gas with over 62 times the GWP (Global Warming Potential) of carbon dioxide.

Also, biodegrable waste can contain toxins. For example, human and animal waste, which is considered biodegradable may contain traces of all sorts of toxins such as heavy metals and pesticides depending on the person/animal's diet.


Degradable Plastics


Degradable plastics are oil based and break down through chemical reactions rather than the activity of micro-organisms, so they can degrade in an anaerobic environment into water, CO2, biomass and trace elements.

Compostable Plastic


This is pretty close to biodegrable plastic but "greener".

According to the American Society for Testing & Materials, for plastic to be considered as compostable, it must be able to break down into carbon dioxide, water and biomass at the same rate as paper. It also needs to look like compost, should not produce any toxic material and should be able to support plant life.

Compostable items are made from plant materials such as corn, potato, cellulose, soy and sugar.

So:


Biodegradable - green, but can leave traces of toxins

Degradable - made from oil, but breaks down into harmless materials

Compostable - green from start to finish.. perhaps



It looks like the greenest choice is clear - compostable plastics are the most earth friendly option.

Or is it?


Green plastic challenge

One of the problems involved with creating green plastics is the amount of energy needed in production. In some scenarios, the fossil fuel input is more than what it is to create the equivalent in crude oil based plastic product.

All breakdown of the above three kinds of "green" plastics also creates carbon dioxide. We're somewhat caught between a rock and a hard place in this. The compromise appears to be using the plants that the plastic is created from also as an energy source for production.

Instead of carbon emissions being generated from sources sequestered under the ground such as coal and oil, the burning of corn stalks and other plants would not increase net carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, because new plants would absorb an equal amount of the gas.




i guess, that's pretty much of it. hope this info will help you in understanding about the whole biodegradable thingy.



remember: REDUCE. REUSE. RECYCLE.

nightmare.

i had a nightmare.



but i couldnt remember the details.
yang pastinya bukan macam drama Flash Forward tu la tapinya.
he.

ok. dah. dah. sambung tido jom.





note: awal betul aku Subuh harini. ngee.

feeling suicidal

there was one time, Meredith Grey purposedly threw herself and jumped into the sea.
and there's another time, Bella Swan too, did the same thing.

i'm feeling the same way too right now.

NO.
i don't mean to jump and die.
gila ke apa nak buat macam tu.

what i mean here is that, i know how that feel.
emptiness.
eventho there're lot of people around you, like your friends. but you still feel that emptiness inside.

i was thinking to go to the swimming pool today.
not for a swim.
but i just want to sit at the bottom of the pool.
dalam air.
feel the silent. and the calm. and the peacefulness that surround me.
water= tranquility.
macam Percy Jackson :)
rasa aman. sangat.

(tapi tak jadi sebab malas nak salin swimming suit. lagipun right now sangat sejuk sebab baru lepas hujan..so aku duduk dekat balkoni, thinking about nothing.. )

hmm.
i'm feeling miserable sangat today.
mostly sebab life sendiri kot.
sometimes i wish that i can bring myself to anywhere that i wanna go - far from people i know.
i guess that's why i'm planning to go 'somewhere' next year kot.
as an escapism.

escape from what??

entah.
maybe what they say is true;

"Sometimes people run because they want to be chased.. and saved".
(ok. yang saved tu saye tambah sendiri. he)



maybe i want to be saved.
but not now.
later, perhaps.
when i'm drowning.


to u.
i cant accept u
[right now] not becos i dont like u.
but.
bcos i just dont have the feeling to get married. yet.
not now. maybe not even next year kot.
entah ler. belum sampai seru kot..



hurm..
macam mana nak escape dari diri sendiri eh?








ps:
btw,
mom send me sms, asking my name.
MY. FREAKING. NAME.
could my day can get any better? *sigh*

Ancient

History was my favourite subject when i was in school.
no matter how lazy i was when it comes to study (selalu tidur time prep.. yang bestnye tak pernah kantoi dengan warden. ngee~), i'll make sure i get an A for History subject.
there was one time, i was kind of mad at my history teacher because she didn't give me 100% marks for my History paper (result trial SPM) with the reason "memang dah syarat tak boleh bagi student markah 100% dalam esei walaupun complete semua point". i was like "WTF..????" - dalam hati je la tapi. huhu.

u might say "only 2 points. so what's the different? sama juga A+ kan?".
well honey, 100% gonna make my name to be on top of the History scorer list among all Form 5 students. but with 98%-> it means that i'm just a good student, not excellent. hm. i hate being ordinary or 'just good enough' on my fav subject.

so yeah.
i love History.
prolly because i love reading since i was a kid, so rembat je la semua bahan bacaan yang boleh di baca termasuk lah buku teks Sejarah. ngee.

tapi dalam banyak-banyak chapter, saye paling tak blei blah dengan chapter pasal Dewan Rakyat ke Dewan Negara ke dan segala yang sewaktu dengannya. haa..yang itu memang lembap sket masuk dalam kepala. sebab tu saye tak berminat ambil exam SPA sebab tau memang akan kantoi. haha.



anyway,
the place that i'm planning to visit next year will mostly include museum and some ancient buildings which i loikeeee!
picturing myself to be at that place really excites me.

BUT (yes, there's a but)
am not sure who's gonna come along, though.
sebab confirm laaa takder orang minat nak pergi muzium-muzium nih. it's gonna be boring for them.

so am not sure if the plan gonna be executed or not.
maybe it will. maybe it won't.
but if nobody interested in that, i'll change it to some other country which is nearer (and cheaper) like.. hmm.. Gold Coast maybe (but i'm more interested to go to New Zealand).
tah ler. tak fikir lagi pasal back-up plan.

haaih.. bila laaaaaa boleh dapat kerja yang require me to travel around the world tapi tayah kuar sesen pun nih ekk... ngeh3.


tu la.. dulu elok-elok dah dapat offer, tapi tolak sebab kunun-kunun degree in IT, so nak stick to IT jugak. and now, sape yang susah? nape la haku nih suka sangat tolak tuah/rezeki ek..? hmm.

Everybody's fine


i thought this is a boring movie.
turns out,it is a good movie.
a sad one.
a good sad movie, i must say.
and demmit i couldn't stop crying.

Everybody's Fine
Cast:
Robert De Niro, Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale, Sam Rockwell.

(great line up eh?though i only know 3 of them. haha. )

Plot Summary:

Frank Goode lives by himself in Elmira, NY, a recent widow with heart trouble, retired from a factory job, proud of having pushed his adult children toward success. In the summer, all four kids bail on a reunion, so, against doctor's orders, Frank decides to surprise each with a visit.

For too long
I was out on my own
Every day I spent trying to prove
I could make it alone
It was fun hanging on to the moon
Heading into the sun..

What is someone like you doing in a place like this?

so many things to talk about, but i just dunno where to start.
hurm. nevermind. i'll get to the other things later. for now..


  1. am writing this blog while watching Uruguay vs Korea.
    good game. so far, Uruguay is leading.
    (tapi tengok sorang2 tak best la compared to watching WC at Jalan Damai. ngee.)


  2. currently i keep playing Timbaland's Morning After Dark & If We Ever Meet Again & Carryout. and not forgetting, Usher's songs!


  3. wish i can get FREE tix to see Usher this July. tapi harapan adalah sangat tipis nampak gayanya. huhu~ T__T
    why FREE tix? it's because i can't afford the RM488 tix. i really wanna be there when Usher sings Slow Jams! so that bolei la nak perasan-perasan dan sengih sorang-sorang masa dia nyanyi lagu tu. ngeee~



  4. i'm thinking to go somewhere next year.
    forget about ASEAN.
    i'm talking about much farther than that.
    haven't discussed with anyone yet cause,
    well, it will cost a lot of money.
    and i don't think any of my friends will agree to it.. :(

    can i afford it?
    dunno. but i hope so.
    one thing for sure,
    i'll definitely broke laaa lepas balik malaysia balik.
    huhu~

    so to prevent that from happening,
    'guess i need to find other job in which gonna be difficult since i'm comfortable with current job.
    the only problem is the s*lary.sungguh tidak berpatutan.
    huhu~

    and even if i do manage to get a job with a satisfied s*lary,
    boleh keeee nak sesukahatisesedaprasa nak minta cuti sebulan when the time comes?
    jangan kata sebulan, seminggu pun belum tentu lepas kotttt.
    i did get offer(s) from other company that can give much more than my current s*lary, but i declined because.. i'm too comfortable with my current job and i don't think i wanna work outside from oil & gas industry. cos it's like... (no, i'm not gonna finish this sentence. he.)


    hurm.
    i need to get out from my comfort zone.
    it's now or never.
    so what if it's not O&G company, as long as it can gimme what i want, it should be good.. right? err, right?

    E,
    here i come!!! ;)

My Water Moments


Phi Phi Island, 2009

in case if you don't know yet,
this blog. my blog. was named the travel junkie lady.
when i created this blog, my intention was to make it as my travelogue.
from my past trip to the most recent ones.

mula-mula jer bersemangat.
but then i get lazy.
there're few more places that i haven't updated in this blog;
Singapore.. Bali.. and few others.

hurm..
i wonder where has the spirit goes..

ok fine. it's not really because of LAZY.
the truth is,
it's because of the picture quality that makes me feel so embarassed to show the pictures to other people ! :(

you see,
i have been an 'adventure junkie' since i was in school.
i've been:
mountain hiking, wall climbing, kayaking, water rafting, camping, scuba diving, flying-foxing, etc (basically whatever that has 'ing' behind it) ;p
so, a VERY GOOD camera is important to me to capture all those precious moment.

and when i say GOOD it means:
water-proof,shock-proof, temperature-proof!

and not to forget,
it must be a small and slim too so that i can put in my bag easily for my daily use.

yes. it must be THAT GOOD.

if you read my blog, most of my trips involved WATER!
be it the ocean, waterfall or any water theme park.
(and thanks to god, my house has a swimming pool too! heee)
yerp. WATER is my escapism from the outside world.

After my last camera has died last 2 years after Tioman Island trip
[thanks to the non-waterproof camera. :( ],
i never bought any camera ever since.
i kind of 'merajuk'.

i borrowed my sister's camera to Krabi for Songkran Festival, 2009 and since it's a non-waterproof camera, i had to use waterproof case to avoid it from water.


(image from google)

and my god, it was really, really, REALLY IRRITATING!
like, seriously.
it's difficult to take pictures as it takes a while for the camera to stabilize the lens inside that plastic.
so there goes all the candid moment that i wanted to capture.. *sigh*


Phi Phi Island, Krabi, Thailand
2009


the recent trip that i took was in March 2010:

the Trip to Sipadan Island-

which is one of the most precious island on earth!
and since i was going there to have a go on scuba diving, it got me thinking to buy a new camera.

ye la kan. kena lah ambil gambar underwater.


like hello, it was going to be my first time scuba diving so of course,

i need to capture that 'historic' moment!

ngeee~

i need an 'awesome-easy to use-super-cool' camera!
so i googled on the net and guess what i found?

YES-

the SONY TX5!





click at the image to view the description

it's a complete package-all-in-one camera~!

or in other words:
Small wonder!

as i quote from Sony:


"Amazing things come in this small package. The Cyber-shot® TX5 has it all, from a stunningly thin 3/4" body to advanced technologies that make it easy to shoot gorgeous photos and videos. Aside from its remarkable intelligence, the TX5 is also built extremely tough. Its airtight construction is waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, and freeze-proof. Just slip it in your pocket and you're prepared to capture the world in style, no matter where you are. "

i guess i don't need to explain more, eh?
me likeeee TX5!
^___^





i was very excited about it and i remember I went to Sony, Pavillion to buy it BUT i was very FRUSTRATED 'cause at that time,
TX5 hasn't hit Malaysia's market yet!


and you have nooooo idea how devastated i was.. :(
[you can read the frustration over here, btw]


anyway, to cut this entry short
( i know, this is longgggg already. haha. hey, am trying to make a point here. hihi),
i let you to see some of the evidence of my poorly captured pictures.

Tioman Island, Malaysia,
2008


to take these pictures, i had to go inside the boat, took my friends' pictures and then asked someone from the boat to take OUR pictures and then go inside the boat again to keep the camera inside a plastic bag. tsk.

and because of it's not a waterproof camera,
i was not able to take the wonderful and all those amazing underwater creatures while snorkeling.. :(

Tioman Island, 2008

what a stunning beach!
but unfortunately, this is where my camera hold it last breath after sucking too much water.. :(


Below:

Department Trip @ Pulau Pangkor
2008


we looked like a bunch of ghosts!

*lol*

you know what,

TX 5 has this 'Great Low-light Shots Without a Flash' function.

so above 'ghostly' image won't happen with TX5.

this was actually, a very scary moment.

we were in the water,

when suddenly came this one HUGE wave threw us back and forth in it!

tak sempat nak buat apa-apa. were trying hard to grasp for air.

i even thought that i was gonna die. huhu~


nasib baik tak trauma. hehe.

that was us- in our hotel's swimming pool, the following day.

:)

I had my first banana boat ride during this holiday.

but none of us took any picture of it because we left it in the hotel.

it's okay for us to be wet, but NOT our CAMERA!!


Below:

Krabi, Thailand, 2009


Songkran Festival in Phi Phi Island.

(taken with camera inside that 'plastic waterproof case')

see the images?

bad, isn't it?

this won't happen with Sony TX5 as it has anti-motion blur technology.


Below:

Pulau Sipadan, 2010


good eh?

oh well, it was taken using our guide's camera, which we rented it, btw :(

mati la kalau asyik kena rent camera everytime nak masuk dalam laut, kan?

wish i have one waterproof camera for myself..

from this entry.

Faz's camera fell into the water.

we managed to get it back after awhile, but it's pointless anyway.

the camera has broken.

it's not Sony TX5, you know.. not a waterproof camera. not a shockproof camera.. (T__T)


hmm..
if only i had that Sony TX5, all above pictures would have been so much better..

and only nuffnang & sony can make my dream comes true ;)

Six Selfish Reasons

via treehugger.

Six Selfish Reasons You Don't Want Dead Oceans
by April Streeter, Portland, Oregon on 06.18.10


TreeHugger asked Andrew Sharpless, CEO for the Oceana ocean protection organization, why we really personally care about the health and fate of the world's big water bodies. Many of us, after all, live far from the coast. TH asked Sharpless to please tell us how and why the health of the oceans affects each of us directly.

Here are his replies:



1. You May Eat Seafood, Too.

"First of all, you get most of your seafood from the oceans," Sharpless said. "So if you enjoy seafood, the health of the oceans should be very important to you." In fact, right now is a good time to help save the Gulf seafood industry by actually indulging in its products. Many delicacies including Gulf oysters, and wild-caught Gulf shrimp, are available in stores and according to NPR, there are three tiers of protection to help make sure seafood affected by the spill doesn't make it to market.



2. And Even If You Don't, Someone Else May Want To.

If you are concerned about hunger and feeding the world's burgeoning population, you should be very concerned about keeping our oceans healthy. Over a billion people, most of them very poor, rely on seafood as a major source of protein, Sharpless says.

3. Fishermen Aren't the Only Water Workers.
If you are worried about the economy and jobs, you should care about the ocean. "Hundreds of millions of jobs around the world - ranging from fishermen to lifeguards - depend on healthy seas and fisheries," Sharpless said. The current economic situation in the Gulf, where jobs are being lost and businesses are folding due to the ongoing oil spill, is proof positive that a body of water is only an economic engine when it stays healthy. Sharpless says over 200 million people worldwide rely on the ocean's bounty for their livelihoods.

4. Oceans Are A Climate Change Temp Control.

"The oceans play a large role in regulating the planet's temperature," Sharpless says, "making them crucial to helping us combat climate change." Since the Industrial Revolution, the oceans have absorbed 30 percent of the carbon dioxide we put into the atmosphere, moderating and masking its global impact. Eventually, Sharpless explains, the oceans may not be able to absorb as much carbon dioxide, hastening climate change. And, this excess carbon is already making the oceans more acidic, and making it more difficult for coral reefs, phytoplankton and shellfish to form their shells. This includes many animals that are the base of the marine food chain and critical to the oceans' overall health. Coral reefs in particular, the nurseries of the seas and home to a quarter of all marine life, could be devastated by acidifying oceans.

But couldn't oceans soak up CO2 even if they were overfished and polluted? To a certain degree, Sharpless replied. "As long as you don't kill all the photoplankton, the oceans will continue to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. So overfishing is not likely to have a direct impact on the ability of the oceans to help regulate the climate of the planet. Pollution is another matter, since some forms of pollution can clobber the microscopic algae-like plants that grow in the ocean and which pull down a lot of CO2."

5. Collapse Is No Fun for Coastal Tourists.

"if you enjoy going to the ocean," Sharpless says, "and enjoying the wonder of the seas, you should care about what is happening. We are on the verge of a collapse- because of overfishing and pollution. If we lose the life that forms the basis of so much of our oceans, everything else that depends on it is going to change. This is already happening in places like the Costa del Sol where famous beaches are now periodically, overrun by swarms of jellyfish, in places like Cape Cod where cod is now only a memory, in famous diving spots like Shark Ray Alley in Belize where there are few sharks to be found."

6. Saving Oceans Saves Your Bacon...Literally.

According to the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization, 29% of the fish in the world are used as food for animals or for other fish, Sharpless explains. After aquaculture, much of it gets fed to pigs and to chickens. A smaller portion goes into pet foods and pharmaceuticals. Since 1981, the proportion of fishmeal used in aquaculture has been increasing. "So the answer is fishing does connect to your (ham) steak and bacon, and in a direct way," Sharpless said. "If the world's wild fisheries continue their collapse, there will likely be price increases in store for you at the pork and chicken counter."

Mulanya di sini..


all lights were turned off..
the bride and the groom entered the hall..
only a spotlight focused on them..
and this Mulanya Di Sini song was in the air.

i dunno how to describe my feeling that time.
it was a very sentimental moment.

romantic.
sweet.
meremangkan bulu roma pun iya juga.
tiba-tiba hati sangat sayu sebab teringat seseorang. sobs.

by the way,
lagu ini saya sukaaaaaa :)
memang kena sungguh untuk starting majlis kawen.
sweet, don't u think so too? ;)






Mulanya Di Sini - Freedom

Tibanya di sini
Bagai terulang lagi
Kisah yang indah
Antara kita berdua

Sehingga di sini
Tiada berpaling lagi
Kita berteman
Seiring jalan dan sehaluan

Sama sama menjejak mimpi
Sama sama mencari dan menanti
Segalanya direstui cinta sejati
Sama sama gunung didaki
Sama sama turun ke lembah sepi
Suka duka bersama dirasai

Mulanya di sini
Ku kenali dirimu
Sehingga kini
Sehingga ke akhir waktu

Akhirnya di sini
Ku kenali hatimu
Sehingga kini
Kita akan terus berlalu

Sama sama menjejak mimpi
Sama sama mencari dan menanti
Segalanya direstui cinta sejati
Sama sama gunung didaki
Sama sama turun ke lembah sepi
Suka duka bersama dirasai

Di hadapan kita ada jalan
Menuju di kejauhan ada sinar menanti
Di penghujung perjalanan ini

Oh... sambil bernyanyi
Mendendang senandung yang syahdu
Riangnya hati dan indah duniaku

Sama sama menjejak mimpi
Sama sama mencari dan menanti
Segalanya direstui cinta sejati
Sama sama gunung didaki
Sama sama turun ke lembah sepi
Suka duka bersama dirasai

reached at the bride's house quite late [kerana telah mengalami kesesatan. signboard ada tak nak tengok. sibuk tengok GPS je. haha. tahapehape], so i didn't witness the solemnization ceremony.
frust sangat.
i'm sorry Cuk.. sebab tak dapat tengok '1 lafaz'.
hebak mung! *lol*

gambar tadak, so tak bolei nak upload sini.
tak amek gambar sebab segan nak keluarkan kamera comel sebab semua orang bawak kamera besar. tambah lagi ada geng Candid Syndrome; especially Saiful Nang.
so rasa amat segan di situ. huhu.

takpe. yang penting.
ada gambar saye yang diambil oleh mereka. hahahahaha.

shhh.
actually kan,
ada sekeping dua gambar kacuk & farra, tapi sangat blur.
maybe ill update later kot.

You spin my head right round, right round


  • mengantuknya lahai..

  • arini balik lambat ..

  • sebab sampai ofis sangattttt lewat..

  • lewat sebab malam tadi tidur lambat..

  • tidur lambat sebab tengok movie A-Team yang super kelakar sampai saye berguling-guling di atas sofa yang serba empuk itu.urmmm..

  • hurm, i wonder cerita tu best sebab memang best ke.. atau terpaksa kata best sebab tengok movie yang harga tiketnya RM40??

  • oh yes. A Team adalah sangat, sangat, sangat kelakar! tapi macam malas nak review sebab mataku masih separuh terbuka. haha. kalau saye rajin (which i know, i'm not), akan saye update.

  • ooh tiba-tiba terngiang-ngiang lagu Right Round sambil terbayang seorang pilot yang 'gila' (Murdock) berpaut di kipas helikopter di saat semua orang kelam kabut nak escape dari polis Mexico. haha. sengal gila.

  • btw, semalam masa tengok poster Ecplise, hati terus rasa berdebar-debar. ngee. macam peminat fanatik pula, which the truth is, NO. i'm not a fanatic. tapi layan laaaa juga sebab i like reading the books :)

  • First time tengok movie dalam Platinum suite. sebelum nih paling hebat pun sekadar Premiere je. so bila dapat chance semalam..oooh la la. rasa sungguh awesome. since i'm a small size, maka dapat duduk sofa gabak besar tu terasa macam tengah baring2 atas katil. ngeee~

if you must steal, then steal away my sorrows...



may you never steal, lie or cheat.

But if you must steal,

then steal away my sorrows.

And if you must lie,

lie with me all the nights of my life.

And if you must cheat, then please cheat death,

because l couldn't live a day without you.

-Leap Year-





a nice movie, i must say.
agak comel kot.
it's simple and typical.
but i kinda like this one.
prolly because the breathtaking scenery that was shown in this movie.
hee.

i love this type of movie.
well, any movie that involves road trip + travel + amazing scenery will definitely be my fav.
:)

kadang-kadang, tengok cerita yang simple-simple macam ni lagi best.
even dah tahu how the story's gonna end, tapi mungkin sebab sangat lah indah pemandangan yang ditunjuk membuatkan cerita yang tipikal menjadi luar biasa.
ceh. ayat tak bolei blah.

some might think I*T people should love all those CGI's movie.
but me..?
naaahh.
i opt for something much simpler.
such as;

(500) Days of Summer,
Once,
Imagine Me & You,
Elizabethtown,
The Holiday,
Wicker Park,
etc.
(tak ingat dah. rasa macam banyak lagi kot.)

it's not because of the love story.
i sort of hate cheesy movie anyway ;p

what i do enjoy is seeing the scenery.

i always dream that one day i'll have the chance to travel in Europe
(and around the world ;p).

backpack. roadtrip.
either one will do just fine for me.
sangat suka tempat yang ada:-

beautiful greenish scenery
[Switzerland (Bella & Edward's. hee), New Zealand, Ireland, Japan, etc]
+
historical/ancient building/monuments
[Venice, Paris, Amsterdam, England]
+
culture
(Turki, Egypt, India, etc).


cambest je kan kalau dapat pergi..

i kinda hope that one day, if i EVER find my soulmate
(apasal aku rase macam euuw bila sebut soulmate eh..?)
he's also must be a travel junkie.
ye la kan. at least ada kawan nak jalan-jalan.
tayah risau kena kidnap.
or just in case ada inn-keeper suh kish, tader ar cuak sebab sah2 la halal. ngehngeh.


kawen sebab nak ada kawan berjalan-jalan? haha. yer. saye tau, saye memang sengal (^___-)


ok bye.
dah habis merepek.
nite nite everyone~

melancholy


aku pernah dengar dia menangis. tapi thru phone.
kali ni first time aku tengok sendiri depan-depan, dia menangis.


ok fine.
bukan depan-depan.

aku tengok dari belakang dia senyap-senyap.
tatau pun dia menangis sebenarnya.
aku cuma perasan masa sebelum sempat aku panggil nama dia, aku nampak dia gosok-gosok mata.
dan bunyik sok-sek. sok-sek.

confirm. bukan selsema.
bukan juga sebab rokok.
sebab aku nampak air mata jatuh.
orang lalu lalang depan kaki lima pun dah pandang-pandang.

lama juga la aku diri belakang dia.
sebab tatau nak buat apa.
mula-mula nak buat selamba je panggil dia ajak balik, konon-konon tak perasan.
but i can't.
words stucked in my throat.
it loss even before i could open my mouth to speak.

few minutes later,
aku panggil nama dia.
cepat-cepat dia kesat mata.


sad.
i feel sad. i feel bad.
kalau dia adik aku si Haziq tu, mungkin boleh aku gosok-gosok belakang dia pujuk jangan menangis.
pujuk bagi gula-gula ke. janji belikan McFlurry Oreo ke. bawak pergi playground ke. layan dia main rollerblade ke. make a deal with Abang to let him play PS ke..

tapi dia ni.. bukan adik aku. bukan budak kecik.
dah besar dah. dah dewasa.
so aku tatau nak buat apa.

masuk kereta, dia senyum.
damn u. tolong jangan senyum depan aku boleh?
tolong lah pretend depan orang lain, tapi bukan dengan aku.

kalau dengan aku pun ko nak senyum-senyum, and said "aku tak pape, aku ok",
i felt insulted.
like, seriously freaking insulted.
kita bukan baru kenal semalam..kan?



lelaki menangis, tak macho?















that's bullsh*t.



note:
salu kalau aku stress, stuck and dunno what else to do, aku salu baca nih :
romanize : "Hasbunallahu wa nikmalwakil".
maksud: "Cukup lah ALLAH untuk (menolong) kami dan Dia lah sebaik-baik pengurus (Dan terserah kepadaNya segala urusan kami)"

->normally aku baca ni bila stress kerja. lepas baca nih, automatik rasa stress tu hilang. tapi untuk big problem, tak pernah la pulak try sebab aku tak pernah ada big problem so far. Alhamdulillah :)

it ain't easy..


..being a woman.

so today i'm on MC leave.
MC sendiri je sebab malas nak pergi klinik. last month dah amek MC atas sebab yang sama, so this month, amek EL je la kot.

having menstrual cramp every month is no fun, i tell you.
especially if it happens during weekdays.
tambah lagi, bila tengah mengejar dateline kerja.
it kind of affected my work performance. huhu~

tapi nak buat camno kan? bukan aku minta pun benda nih.
i'm lucky enough if the cramps attack on weekend-
takyah risau pasal kerja. takyah risau reason nak amek cuti kat boss. tak payah dengar doktor aku bebel-bebel pasal tak consume Omega Oil (i think what she meant is the Evening Primrose Oil kot..)

aku dah pernah dah try EPO tu.
mom bought it for me few years back.
sama je kot. i still had the menstrual cramps every month. the pain is there, cuma tak teruk.
memandangkan EPO tu macam mahal, so aku pun takde la nak continue telan pil tu lagi.
'sides, sapa la yang suka makan pil..?? huhu~

aku tak rasa perlu makan EPO sebab eventho the pain is unbearable,
it only takes 24 hours time je.
let's say the pain starts at 2pm on May 25th, it will be over around 2pm on May 26th.
siap ada time lagi. haha.
tapi agak senang la haku nak agak and plan.
contohnya kalau it starts on Sunday morning, then it will end on Monday morning.
maknanya esok tu boleh la aku pergi kerja half day.

hmm..
tak bolei ke pergi kerja time tu..?

gila laaaa..!
kalau boleh.. i won't be writing this entry today. T___T

office = aircond + sejuk+ work pressure .
me= severe pain + muka dah pucat +fatigue+ going to the ladies every 10 minutes (toilet kat luar, so it feels like forever to reach to the toilet from my cubic )+ otak dah tak boleh fikir pasal kerja + orang buat lawak, buat haku rasa nak tumbuk je muka orang tu.. and the list goes on...


There's one time,
(i think it was 2,3 months back)
one of my collegue yang memang by nature mulut dia nih kurang ajar (he's a male, btw), usik-usik pasal aku dengan Loki. normally aku buat tatau je bila dia usik-usik.
BUT, unfortunately that day i was having menstrual cramp (masa tu dah petang around 4pm camtu),
and i was totally pissed when he said something about me & Loki,
so secara tiba-tibanya,
first time in my 3 years working here,
aku tinggikan suara and said "ENGKAU NI MAKIN MELAMPAU EH?MAKIN MENJADI-JADI! KAU INGAT AKU SUKA KE KO USIK-USIK MACAM TU, HAH?"
// notice the 'Engkau'..? i've never said 'Engkau' before this.
// the 'hah' tu aku exaggerate je. haha.

he kind of terdiam la bila aku cakap macam tu. surprised, maybe.
dah la masa tu agak ramai orang ada kat situ. haha. padan muka, malu.
pastu dia pun memblahkan dirinya.
suka hatiku. lalallaa.

ok.
dah habis membebel.
i'll see you when i see you, ok? :)


note:
picture above demonstrates what i do to ease the pain. tapi aku lagi hebat la. letak air panas dalam botol. pastu golek- golek the bottle on my stomach. hoho.

the end.

Travelogue Mabul - Sipadan Trip : Day 3 [Part III]

because i'm in such a good mood today, i guess i shall continue updating my 'stone-age' trip.
i won't write much tho.
you know what they say right, 'a picture worth a thousand words',
so let's get going!
^___^



we were extremely exhausted after coming back from the diving trip.
Both Faz & Adan were not feeling well. maybe because dehydration. or maybe because it was the side affect after being under water.
and as for me, i was very tired and all i could think about during this time was to sleep!
but at the same time, i don't want to miss the Bajau's Wedding too.

//diving is very tiring i tell you!
//but yeah, it was definitely fun :)



we arrived to the venue a wee bit early so we decided to taste Mabul's Air Batu Campur.
yummy!~

i was forced by these kids to take their picture!!
T___T
see the t-shirt?
ganas dowh budak2 nih.

there were lots of people that night.
not only the local villagers, but the tourists as well.
// and it looks like there was a concert being held ;p


while waiting for the bride & the groom,
we were entertained by a local singer.
sumpah tatau mamat tu nyanyi lagu apa. tak faham.
kejap rasa macam hindustan. kejap rasa macam philipino.
haih. layan kan aje lah.
hee.


finally,
here comes the bridegroom~


see their sour face?
there's no smile. not even a glimpse.

it happened that this marriage was actually, an arranged marriage.
kesian.




the villagers came up the stage to give these girls money.
nasib la saya pakai t-shirt, kalau tak, boleh gak cuba nasib. ngeh3.

the ceremony took hours!!
so there's nothing better to do than killing the time by cam-whoring.
*lol*

//dancers pun jadi mangsa kitorang untuk bergambar. muahahah.





muka tak tahu malu sibuk nak bergambar dengan pengantin.
dah la pakai t-shirt je.
Pak Lah lagi selamba dek, pakai suar pendek je.
hahaa.
oh well, it's not like you have the oppurtunity to attend an island wedding everyday, right?
=)
