...wind blew the pages of my diary...

I was at Batu Ferringhi watching the beautiful sun setting and two child playing with the sand, happily chatting away and they too, I bet, were enjoying the beautiful sunset.
Streched my body, getting ready to dip myself in the sea water when the wind blew the pages of my old diary and just stopped at that one particular page.... the page I wrote many years ago...the page that I have not read all these years...the page that now reminds me of Josh....
I stood still for a few seconds, thinking if I should read it or just run to the beach, jump over the waves and say 'haha...u missed me'!! But my heart says..."read it...read it....". And so i took the diary and read it...


?? January 1998

1 MONTH AGO: I saw him at the library seriously preparing for finals. Books stacked up on his table, I could see his eyes focusing on that one page. Such a smart boy! How sad, he didn’t notice me sitting just opposite his table.

1 WEEK AGO: I saw him at the dance practice, showing off his cool moves, imitating MJ and then he stopped. The crowd cheered and whistled at him. I was there, leaning on a pillar, right beside a very tall figure. I cheered too. But how sad he didn’t notice me at all!

1 DAY AGO: I saw him gazing at a group of girls as they walked across his table and then he whispered something to his friend and smiled at the girls. Wow…what a smile! How sad he didn’t notice me sitting just beside his table.

1 HOUR AGO: I saw him running down the field, sweating and tired but still looking gorgeous, raising his hand proudly after scoring a goal for his team. I cheered together with the crowd but how sad he didn’t notice me at all!!

1 MINUTE AGO: I saw him sitting at the cafeteria having a hot cup of tea, chattering away with his friends. Isn’t he the cutest thing on earth! How sad he didn’t notice me at all!

1 SECOND AGO: I was sitting rite there waiting for a bus and there he was opposite the road waving at someone…..someone probably sitting beside me at the bus stop. Wait a minute…. There’s no one here. Oh my god ….. he’s waving at ME!!! He’s calling me….arrghh!!

BAANNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!

NOW: I’m sitting right next to him admiring his sad face…his eyes filled with tears. What beautiful eyes. How sad, all this while I didn’t notice him looking at me.


Tears running down my cheeks...memories of Josh came into my mind....I remembered that sad day....or rather an embarrassing day of my whole entire life (actually there's even worse moments).... Josh was actually sad and with all that tears in his eyes because the bus ran over his pencil case!!! Arrghh...!!! He was waving at me, asking me to take his DUMB pencil case before the bus crushes it....


"Oh my god....why does things like this happen to me...."


I dropped the diary and ran to the beach, jumped over the waves and said...."haha Josh you missed me"!!!! ;-)

One of God's Greatest Gifts

All through our life, god has always been beside us. Watching us grow up and achieve the best in our lives. I believe HE has helped through till who I am today and will continue to give the best till the last day. HE has blessed me with a happy family and great friends.

Five years in UTM, I really enjoyed my life there. I truly miss those days with my friends. Now that all of us are busy working, we only meet up occasionally. It's one of god's greatest gift to me that i meet this group of 12 guys and 2 girls on May 15th, 2002 (i think so that's the day). Some snapshots of fun times with them....

'Going jalan-jalan on sampan'


'Tenggelamla jetti!!'
'The whole gang'

'Kummi adi, kummi adi'

'Chicken burn edy la'

'Say Cheese'

Her Special Day

The most "can't-wait-for-it" celebration of the year 2009 is coming up. My sister's wedding. I'm so very excited about it, especially the part where I get to choose my Saree for the wedding day and my dress for the wedding dinner. Hehehe....

Actually I'm more excited about the wedding dinner because it is hosted by the bride's family (our side).

Well ofcourse we all are working hard on our part to make her special day, very very special. Dad's busy with the venue bookings and 'paresam'. Mum's busy on the house decoration and the 'paresam'. Anne & Anni (Brother & Sister-In-Law) busy with the decoration, photograph & video bookings, food, music and ect. And I'm busy deciding the saree and dress colour and the jeweleries. Not for the bride...it's for me.Hehehe..! And not to forget Jaya, who's very busy with her semester exams, I wonder what she'll be contributing for the wedding preparation.

The excitement is killing me, I actually went around the mall looking for a dress for the wedding dinner. And I saw this beautiful black dress with nice black shinny stones, stiched in flowery pattern on it. I really fell in love with the dress, and to my suprise it was only RM 200.00!! Oh wow...!

Then came the "too-bad-you-can't-have-it" part. It actually didn't fit me! It's size 'XS'...extra small!! (hey...I know what you're thinking...I'm size 'S' okay!) Ohh...my heart broke into pieces when the sales girl told me only size 'XS' is available.

But all this will never stop my quest to look for the most beautiful dress I can find (and afford to buy) for the dinner. Hehehe....



"To my dearest sister, Radha, wish you all the best!"
