25 tahun sudah

It's been so long since i abandoned this page. I haven't got an excuse for that. Partially being lazy as i didn't even had the time to bake cakes or cookies for the festive season, so please excuse my laziness. Apart from that, it hadn't stop me from being lazily in love. Please LOL!

Here I am today being 25 years old, a year older and yes, being lazy. Super lazy! like Adik Azreena would call me.

Sudah sudah la tu MR LAZY, sampai bile kan ? Actually I'm just so excited to share about my 25th birthday celebration. Nothing so grand like the ones you see on MTV super sweet 16 or such. Perhaps i prefer celebrating with smaller crowds, close friends and family or just family instead of tonnes of people i hardly know. Been there, done that.That's just what i feel, we may be different, no?

So back to the topic, it was actually the day before my birthday. It was actually after Mr. Mystery's sister's engagement ceremony, kenduri/open house and all of us, everyone was tired, every drop of sweat was drained out of the system and i had no plans the whole day but to just lie down and rest. Totally forgotten that it was the night of my birthday. Seriously.

And so, he asked me out for dinner with the newly-engaged. And i thought, as normal it was. I was hungry and so was he. However, it was a little weird when we drove to some place none other than the regular. Perhaps it was a new place he discovered. Tak kesah lah mak, janji ade food i'm fine :) until we came to this lovely place that made reminded me so much of Bandung. It was Bora Asmara. (Pls, pls try the oriental chic chop, SEDAP!) Some place i would love to celebrate my birthday. PERFECT! So 100points for you,Mr Sword (Btw, don't be mistaken Mr Mystery and Mr Sword is the same person)

The moment i walked in, i thought how lovely it was to have my wedding here for close friends *berangan mode* and there it was RESERVED for ******* (Mr. Mystery). Goodness! Reserved? Means it was planned. Then, i remembered when my sister told me about her sms-ing with Mr Mystery few weeks back. "Hmm takpelah. Buatpe nak jealous kan? She's my sister" i thought. But there's seats for 10?!? He expects me to seat at one end while i'm on the other ke? No way! Jauh sangat kot, we're not like what he said dracula and vampire in an eerie mansion. Sangatlah tak romantic Miss Sayangness nih kan?. haha!

To cut the story short as well as to avoid from those reading from puking green stuff due to my corny mushy talks (who would even want to read all the details, so I'll just keep in mind what happened and spare the rest) the rest of the crowd came (Mr. Mystery's brother and the newly engaged). There it was a birthday tiramisu cake (sponsored by the newly engaged) and a paperbag full of pressies (from Mr Mystery's dad). I was practically jumping out of my seat, due to overdose of excitement. I really hoped he didn't noticed. Anyways, i think he did. But whatthehell!

To add a little bit of twist, the resident band, i think it was a 6piece band, unplugged sang me the birthday song and another two number but my fave was I'm yours by Jason Mraz. Was this all planned or did it fall in place just perfectly. Seriously dreamy as it sounds,right? But he claims himself as not being romantic, Whatever you say...

We went back after the gang left us earlier. And so the rest of the night was spent, quietly and romantically, NOT! We were so out of ideas plus exhausted at the same time hence we figured to go home and rest well would be a better suggestion. Anyways, i could always celebrate it the next day, right? Cos it's still 27th?!

So see you tomorrow to fill in the blanks _______ :)

1LOVE: Sponsor an Orphan

Salam dear friends,

In this holy month of Ramadhan al-Mubarak, I, Noradura Zubir and a few friends would like to ask for your great help in helping to support our event: Sponsor an orphan.

We would require a contribution of RM20 for each orphan in which it will include:
- a meal,
- a goodie bag
- RM10 Duit Raya.

We will be donating to these homes:

1. Wisma Anak-Anak Yatim Islam Perempuan Penang with 39 orphans and 11supervisors, which is located at Jalan Masjid Negeri, Penang [8th of September 2009].

2. Wisma Anak2 Yatim Lelaki Islam, Farlim Penang with 35 orphans and 15supervisors.[10th september 2009]

3. Rumah Anak-anak Yatim Balik Pulau, Penang with 15 orphans. [9th September 2009]

4. Rumah Kebajikan Anak Yatim At-Taqwa, which is located at Jalan Kapar, Klang, Selangor with over 80 orphans. [13th September 2009]

Hence, the collection should be latest by 15th September 2009 (Tuesday) at 5pm.

InsyaAllah with great sponsorships from all of us, perhaps we would be able to support more for these orphanage houses.

Therefore, I’d like to sincerely request for all your kind co-operation for sponsoring an orphan, the least while more would be much appreciated.

Sesungguhnya Islam menganjurkan umatnya mengadakan majlis berbuka puasa untuk menjamu makan bagi mereka yang berpuasa. Firman Allah S.W.T: “Mereka juga memberi makan sebarang makanan yang dihajati dan disukainya kepada orang miskin, anak yatim dan tawanan (sambil berkata dengan lidah atau hati): Sesungguhnya kami memberi makan kepada kamu semata-mata kerana Allah dan kami langsung tidak inginkan sebarang balasan daripada kamu atau ucapan terima kasih.” -Surah al-Insaan: 8-9.

Menjamu makan untuk berbuka puasa telah dijanjikan dengan ganjaran pahala yang begitu besar. Semakin ramai jumlah orang yang dijamu makan, semakin tinggilah jumlah gandaan pahalanya. Sabda baginda s.a.w: “Sesiapa yang menjamu makanan untuk berbuka bagi orang yang berpuasa, pahalanya sama seperti pahala orang yang berpuasa, iaitu pahala orang yang berpuasa yang tidak dikurangkan walau sedikit.” - Hadis riwayat al-Tirmizi no: 735..

Eiffel im in love *part trois*

22nd July 2009

The next day started out so lousily as my topup was out. Here my head was practically screaming "I wanna go home now!" because calls were much cheaper,but whatever, i'll have to bear with it for the next 12 days. *sigh* Thankfully lil Miss ET loaned her phone to still keep me connected. Hence, pursuing our tour of the French land.

Then again it was super sunny and i was dressed lightly compared to yesterday. I just could not bear the heat. And breakfast was super yummy too. Thank you my French mama. She made the best hot choc and i had scramble eggs and croissant with peach jam and cherry yogurt. Need energy to keep me going for the whole day since food don't go cheap there, thus i might as well stuff myself where there's limitless food at the buffet table right?

the honeymooners

We first went to Musee de lourve (pronounced as musi de loo). Hehe, funny kan? Cos the train station stopped at Palais Royale Musee de Lourve and apparently Et said, Kelantanese would be the one who'd pronounce it perfectly. Here, the museum stores the great paintings of Monalisa and its bad to admit that i could not care less about it. It's just a painting. Perhaps, i would be back to stand in the line and get my pretty-self in the museum and really appreciate the painting and other treasures there.

cafe marly at musee de lourve

However, i did not waste any time there since the scenery, the people was just too beautiful for the day and it was really perfect to drink a cup of lemonade instead of a hot chamomile tea with honey (yours truly needed a hot drink since she was not feeling well) suggested by our good-looking waiter, Pierre.

don't you girls agree with pierre?

After a while, Sayangness and ET marched to Champs-Elysees where there'll be the Arc d Triomphe. It was so exciting since the roads were full of boutique and designer labels, whatever you need. And since my dear friend was tired walking in her oxford heels, she needed a gladi flats badly, urgently!

We both dined at Monte Cristo Cafe which took us an hour to get our meal. Perut dah berjoget berzapin baru nak sampai but thankfully the oh-so-sweet-with-chic-name-i-forgot ice cream came first, so tak sempat lah the both of us nak mengamuk di tempat kejadian.

my goyfy et

I was in search of souvenirs and knowing myself i would not buy a little as most of it comes in bulks. Thus, Et said the best place to shop for souvenirs is at Rambuteau (pronounced as Rambuto, i think :) It was heaven! From postcards to t-shirts to fridge magnets to keychains, this place has it all cheap and i mean it!

And here Et was so looking forward to have KFC and i'm like WTH since i came all the way from Malaysia to have KFC. But i don't complain since it was all good. We tapau-ed the KFC and had our good time eating it in our room with the magnificent view. Full tummy, sleepy eyes, tired feet and a great bed.

Goodnight, ET! *kishkish*
