12 for 180

Paulo Coelho-my latest favorite author.
I'm a slow reader. I think his creations suit me well, as it needs concentration to understand hiss hidden messages.
Just started with The Alchemist (orang lain dh berzaman baca, aku baru nak baca. hehe..pedulikan, better to be late than never..hehe) i'm looking forward to continue with the other books. So, I went to Bangalore, India and found this series of books at the airport.
I hold the box for 15 minutes just to make the calculation..foreign exchange conversion.. $&%@* very bad with maths..having 2nd thoughts and finally made decided to take it home..
Very Cheap meeehhh..RM15 for each book (average). I bought the 1st book-The Alchemist- for RM34.90. See the differences? If you notice, the new set also comes with The Alchemist but who cares...hahahah!!
Maybe i should initiate a book club..hmmm..

Mix and match!

Kesimpulannya jaga pinggang anda.
Berhati-hati ketika mengangkat pokok

Jangan perasan anda BADANG.

The So-called-Daur-Ulang-Kitar-Semula-Recycle


This morning, on my way to canteen i saw three colourful objects..
these three objects made me happy and proud..


PROPER RECYCLE BIN in MARDI..at last..!!

But i wonder if only these 3 bins are going to support the whole institute..(hahaha!!) or not.. i hope not. I will look around to find the others.. :)

Well, early this year I made an effort through our centre's Charity Club to initiate the recycle bin and activities. But it was not well received due to $$$ issues.. but since these colourful bins are already inside..maybe i can voice it out again.. as in "Saya dah nampak kat TS ada tong tu..so apa kata kita pun adakan juga..beli sendiri atau minta dari pengurusan.." People know that these recycle item will generate income. full stop. that's it. i wish they know that every effort they make will contributes to better environment & saving mother earth beside of 'generating income'. well, it is not easy to give awareness to people..environment awareness especially..but let's not give up!

Maghrib

Semalam aku pulang lewat kerana mesyuarat tamat jam 6 petang. Kemas bilik, solat dan sebagainya...aku keluar dari pejabat jam 6.40 petang. Tetiba teringat kain baju di dobi belum diambil..YA aku hantar baju kat dobi sebab sekarang musim hujan dan aku pantang betul kain baju aku bau masam sebab tak kering, plus aku baru balik out station jadi laundry memang sudah luar biasa banyak..hehehee

Tiba di Dobi, azan berkumandang..aku teruskan niat aku nak mengambil pakaian..
sambil menunggu pekerja tu mengembalikan duit baki bayaran (7kg=RM14..not bad haa..murah la) datang seorang jejaka..berkain pelekat dan sejadah di bahu, dia juga singgah sebentar di dobi..menanti pekerja dobi itu..
aku lihat wajahnya..terus tertawan..ewah..serius..betul ni..sejuk mata memandang..wajahnya masih basah dengan wudhu'.. dia bicara bahasa Indonesia. selesai urusanku dan urusannya, kami bawa haluan masing-masing..Semoga dia dirahmati..who ever you are.. :)

Perasanggg!!

Semalam aku perasan cantik sebab ramai betul puji aku putih..
Semalam aku juga dikatakan kurus..(geli hati aarr..) mungkinkah kerana aku menggayakan
baju yang sedikit berbeza..warnanya juga kot..
Ye aku tahu selalu aku hitam sebab selalu main tengah panas..
Muka lebam aje..seminggu dua ni aku banyak 'berteduh'..
Ketahuilah sebenarnya aku putih..hahahaha..jangan tertipu..

p/s: biar muka hitam, jangan HATI HITAM..huhu
