Thank you Allah

It’s never too late for reflections, I believe. Never too late to give thanks to your Creator.

2011 has come and gone.

The year before that (2010) was a challenging year for me. I was full of sadness, anger, depressed and have never felt more at loss in my entire life. There was a point of time when I wanted to give up on my loved ones. I was betrayed in so many ways, I could feel every positive aura just seep out of me. My patience was pushed to the limit till I snapped.

So I prayed. It was the best thing to do. I knew He wouldn’t back out on me when the ones I counted on did. I knew He would have my back and make things right again. I prayed for forgiveness. I prayed for patience. I prayed to find my happiness once more.

With all my faith in Allah, I plunged head on into 2011 and took it one day at a time.

As the sun set on the 31st of December, I looked back on all that was 2011 and gave thanks to Allah for He had not only answered my prayers, He blessed me with so much more. Once in a while, He’d throw in a challenge related with the past, and I guess it’s just a reminder to me to not forget Him as I go about enjoying his blessings. As I thought about it more and more, He has shown me that indeed He listens. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah.

My new baby

Year end is here, and this is usually the time when I treat myself to something nice. It’s like a congratulations-for-surviving-the-year” gift from me to me ๐Ÿ™‚

This year is extra special, because I can finally afford something I’ve been wanting since 2008!

I still thought about it long and hard. Gave myself tonnes of justifications and reasons for purchasing it. I asked for the husbands opinion, my friends, read reviews and heck I even asked my boss if it’s ok for me to make the purchase! (Ey, don’t laugh, he partly approves my bonus so he would know if I can afford to splurge or not)

So after much contemplation and thinking and knocking head on wall, I silently made a decision.

The husband knows me all too well, yesterday night, he said “Let’s go” and took me to One Utama and we headed straight to Mac City ๐Ÿ˜€

Chemps was staring at aย Christmasย bauble that she dropped and it was rolling all the way across the shop

Barely 20 minutes in the shop, I was a proud owner of a brand new 11-inch MacBook Air.

My baby, packed and ready to go home with me ๐Ÿ˜€

ย Everyone, please welcome the latest addition to the Doodle family, little miss Bayu!

Feeling very traditional today, heheheh, hair’s up in a bun, donned a baju kurung to work, and named my laptop Bayu ๐Ÿ˜€

ย 
See how thin and sleek she is? My Bayu’s so elegant and chic!

Ok, some of you are already going “Dia kat opis ke tuh?”

Yes yes, I took Bayu to work with me. I can’t bear to leave her at home, too excited, hik.

That’s my office tag you see right there hanging around my neck. So now I’d better stop playing around with Bayu before my boss turns SonGoku on me *grin*

I won a Samsung Galaxy SII!!

Ho yeaaahh!! I did!! *high fives all around*

Yesterday night was the main office’s annual dinner and boy did I have a blast!! The theme was denim and diamonds and so most of the guests showed up in jeans and a blingy top. Of course, diamond accessories are a must.

I initially wanted to don my Ed Hardy tee with my tight MNG jeans but changed my mind and went with a glittery Guess top instead.

I love annual dinners, it’s one day of the year where I get to totally dress up and have fun with my friends and take lots of vain pictures, hahahaha! Unfortunately I was only equipped with my iPhone, so not that many pictures were taken. Will upload more as and when I receive better pictures from friends.

With Mr Best Dressed ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shiela Majid entertained the guests ๐Ÿ™‚

This year was super sweet because I won one of the cool prizes given out during the lucky draw. That’s right, I won a Samsung Galaxy SII ๐Ÿ˜€ wooohoooo! That’s one heck of a gorgeous phone!! The phone that I got was ceramic white in colour. Uber-chic and stylish! Oh what joy, what joyyy!!!

I won this!! I won this!!

However, thinking it through, I don’t think I’ll be keeping my Samsung phone. I’m still an iPhonista, hehehe.. so, the Samsung Galaxy SII is for sale ๐Ÿ˜‰ it retails for RM1899 but I’m letting it go for less. If anyone is interested, leave a comment here and I’ll email you back ๐Ÿ˜€

Update : SOLD!
