~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ok...back to stories. It was an enjoyable weekend, despite the fact that I had to work on Sunday ehhehe. Saturday, Zul and me went for our friend's wedding. Pengantin lelaki was Zul's ex-colleague and also a chatter like us, and was the last member of the geng to get married. So far, Zul and me had never missed any of the geng's wedding la..sampai ke Terengganu we went. The people in these geng are my abang. Kalau jumpa memang banyak memori la especially with Zul :). We picked up Sepol and wife too who came all the way from Langkawi to attend the wedding. It was nice to meet them. I had a meaningful conversation with Sepol about a friend, meaningful enough to make me feel less guilty for treating a friend in such a way. Here are the pictures during the wedding. Tak banyak ambik gambar as kepala aku dah migraine with the hot weather. Sepol took lots of pictures, am waiting for Siti to load the pictures once they're back to Langkawi.
Balik dari wedding singgah opis jap...Nooo,bukan aku buat keje! Aku singgah untuk sembahyang Zohor je sebab takut tak sempat coz we were planning to drop by Bukit Jalil tengok rumah. The last time I went with Ayah, Zul was working. So, since dia cuti aku ajak la walaupun sebenornya kepala aku dah sakit sangat. He was grinning ear to ear but didn't comment much about the house. We (read:I) were imagining where to put what as we walk around the empty house. Seronok berangan nih!

Balik,I came home and rupanya budak comel ni ada kat rumah..tido.
That night, as I planned several weeks before - I treated the whole family to Sri Tha* opposite PJ H*lton. Sempat snapped pictures of the two dishes je, coz bila tomyam, ayam pandan and telur bungkus sampai aku busy makan :). Sangat yummylicious! Aku belanja to celebrate both mama and ayah's birthdays, and also to celebrate Zul's,Tiyah's and my increment. Abang's project pun is in place..so, alhamdulillah on the rezeki that He granted us so far.
My favorite dish - Kerapu masak Thai.. Akif is wearing the shirt I gave :)

Sunday I had to work in KL Convent*on Centre for the Educ Fair. 2 things made me smile that day. First, an info from a senior lecturer...entah betul entah tidak, kalau betul alhamdulillah again. Second,I bumped into my ex-colleague in Max*s - Lan. Lama gila tak jumpa. I knew he is working in one of the private colleges too but I didn't know which department. His booth was actually next to my booth. He screamed my name, sabo jek :). He was one of the closest friends in the previous company, we always have our dinner together. Sembang kejap (kejap pun 10 minit gak la, tu pun terpaksa stop sbb entrance dah buka to public hik hik)..at the end of the day, he gave me some free pens from his College and I distributed it to my colleagues. Sakit jugak la kaki on that day, lucky I was car pooling with my colleagues and I don't have to drive :P

By the time I reached home, sempat Maghrib je then ajak B pegi Pyram*d. Erm sebenarnya nak cari suar, and at the same time nak main bowling.Prektis la konon sbb aku ada tournament on Monday kan? Tapi bowling alley semua penuh, we can only play at 10pm. Fuh, mmg fail la sbb we promised to meet Sepol at 9.30pm that night minum-minum. So, cancel bowling, had dinner and sambil nak kuar tu, 'ter' singgah la JCo hiks. Bought 1/2 dozen to eat with Sepol and wife. Sambil sembang2 tu, then only I found out rupanya Siti, Sepol's wife read this blog. Haduihh, malu seh. :P

Monday,tournament day..seperti biasa siapkan keje dgn kelam kabut sekali to ensure I'll be able to leave office by 6pm, game starts at 6.30pm. I received the increment letter from boss, but sadly it didn't mention anything about the senior position. I was already upgraded to the max grade in Exec position last year so he said I would need to wait for another year for another upgrade. And he mentioned with a senior position, I would then need to oversee everybody's work here. Huh? That difficult to become a senior ke?

I was a bit sad by the time I leave office. But it's no excuse for my bad performance during the game. I scored 164 for the first game and merely 136 for the second game (tu pun dah tambah handicap points 30 ok??). The boys scored wayyyy better. Although there is handicap points, I would think that it's better to have different category la - Men and women. Cewah macam aku plak organizer. Since I was one of the two staffs attended the tournament, the student asked me to be the prize presenter at the end of the game.Malu seh. But I waited. Kesian plak bebudak tu. As I waited at one corner, the boy didn't see me bila prize ceremony started. So, he end up giving all the prizes himself and I left. He came to the office yesterday with a hamper for me. He said he could not find me and was actually saving the hamper for a token of appreciation, aku segan nak ambik since aku tak deliver pun what he wanted me to do. But he insisted for me to take the hamper. Rezeki jgn ditolak kan? :). Bukannya cikai2 punya hamper, banyak biskut sedap2 and the standard sparkling juice. I distributed some in my dept and brought back some.

And the happy news didn't end there. I received a call from the company yg aku pegi 2nd interview hari tu. She asked me to collect the offer letter Monday next week. I actually thought they had rejected me after 2 weeks of no news. I did try to call them actually last week tapi macam susah nak get through and I stop calling due to me catching up with the madness of my work. Over the phone,she told me how much I would get - RM100 less than what I'm getting now and she asked how much I am earning now. They might compensate the difference by giving allowance but the position is the same position as what I'm holding now- I told her I would need time to think it over once I got the letter. Had spoken to hubby, Mama and a friend in the same field. I have mixed feelings on this. Semua happen at the same time kan with my current employment and potential employer. Saya pening nak pikir, do give your comments ya?

Hari ni saya ambik cuti, nak pegi relax2kan diri. Besok public holiday, Jumaat office tutup..so kalau nak dikirakan 5 hari straight la cuti..oh, jgn excited sangat. Aku rasa aku pegi gak office Jumaat and Sabtu - berlambak weh keje. Malam ni nak tengok wayang! You know la Zul and me with the animation movies :). Picture taken here

Panjang siot cerita this time. Stok seminggu ok? :) I'm meeting this birthday girl and my future besan japgi. More on this in the next posting!

Amy, kedai makan tu kedai apa? mcm best ja... ;). Pasal kerja tue, kalau sama, kena pikir baik2 sebab takut keluar mulut sunga, masuk mulut buaya. The best thing is cuba try calling2 ppl kat company baru (kalau kenallah) and tanya pasal working environment dia. Sebab takut lose out on seniority gak kan? I understand ur dilemma. ;)

Anie said...

Huhu.. menatang berkaki banyok dah menikoh. Cantik Rayban dia.
Tuh la masalah dia, masa tgh hangin ngan boss pi apply tempat len, pehtu susah payah pi interbiu pehtu bila dah dapat dok berdilema plak kan? Hmm.

Kalau ingat janji2 palsu bos ko dulu2 tuh kan, mesti ko accept jek kan? Hik hik.

Kalau saya, saya amik jek sebab saya seorang yg sukakan cabaran. Heh.

Selamatlah hendaknya. Amin.

Amy said...

Anon - AMboi, takde courtesy nak tinggal nama ek? Siapa lah gerangannya.. ye Lipan dah kaweN. Tak pegi ke? :P

Mel - Yup, he's happily married. Eh, takde la bila hangin nak apply..Aku apply sbb nakkan career enhancement. Takmo duduk kat satu takuk lama2. Aku percaya yg kalau aku tak accept pun, kalau ada rezeki yg lebih baik, aku akan dapat jugak nanti. I just want to give it a thought first before I make my decision.
