Thanks to Air Asia. Our flight on the return journey from Kota Bharu was delayed (again).
As a result, we got home past midnight. We all took a shower and went straight to bed.

The next morning:

MOM: Tasha, Can you please go and take a shower?

TASHA: I already showered this morning.

MOM: Don't lie, girl. You just woke up.

TASHA: Mom, I showered at 12.42 this morning when we came back from KB, so, technically, I already have my morning shower.

MOM: !@#$^&*())

As usual, I contracted Tasha's baju raya to my dearest sister, Roza so that all the cousins will have matching clothes. I allow this little indugence because they look so adorable all together and i can't say no to this priceless experience!
However, for Franco et moi, for the 5th or 6th years running (or porbably longer than that), I haven't made myself new baju raya, preferring to wear whatever I have from my existing wardrobe.
Afterall, Ramadhan is the training ground for resisting pleasure and indulgence in life.
With that in mind, why then should raya be a celebration of extravagance and excessiveness?

Swave is the new craze....

After Tasha's Grade 4 music theory exam this morning, I decided to buy her her own swave board since all the while she has been borrowing Tia's.

So, we headed to One Utama and found one at the first store we went in - Studio R.
She couldn't control her excitement and started swaving in the mall.

19th MAY 2010

Probably the worst day of my professional life. The event was too stupid to be repeated here but one of the outcomes served as a revelation for me.
While I was being bashed by the Clients (I won't get into details here cause I don't want you to think that our Clients are a bunch of insecured jokers!), he stood by in my defence while the rest of my team scrambled to sell their soul (and mine) to save their skin.

SHELDON KRAHE - You are the best boss ever.

For two years in a row, we have been delinquent with the renewal of our road tax.
Last year we drove all the way to Singapore only to be refused entry by car and escorted out of Singapore.
This year, we did the same thing again, only the repercussion is not so serious (not yet....since I have not received the renewal). I am trying to stay out of the radar and it is just so hard to drive 80km/h on the road I am used to at least double the speed!
Had Sharma still be around, I would NEVER be in this predicament. We miss you Sharma.

n.b: Sharma was Franco's driver for more than 10 years. His official title was actually "Asset Manager". He passed away in his sleep 2 years ago and his replacement was not even half as good as he was.


We finished playing squash with some neighbours and our special guest, Carrie Yeoh (who used to be on the National team) and his adorable son of 8 years old, when the son turned to Franco while pointing at me and asked,
"Is that your daughter?"
Franco didn't find it amusing and resolved to dye his white hair while I gloated the whole night!
