Hello World

Hellew.  What a beautiful morning I had today.  I woke up at 5:30, took the train at 7:20, reached my destination at 8:00..Well, I should say a total change in my schedule.

9 years of working, I never took the train to work.  I drove.  Now I can see people walk here and there with books, laptops, electronic gadgets. I could sense the early morning vibes which I never did before.  That's beautiful to me.  I can see different people every day.

The best sight that I saw was when people from every races put up tables to sell nasi lemak, kuih, soya bean, newspapers.. There's a lot of them.  Customers swarmed like ants coming from both of the stations to buy breakfast.  Their return of investment can be pretty high..tskkk.   

What not nice to watch was an old lady sitting down on a bench with a pair of torn sneakers (bet she dug it from the dustbin) looking at the pedestrians with a pair of sad eyes.  I don't know what I felt, it cut me deep.  Not far away from her, laid a man with his private part flashing and disgusting yellowish liquid flowed from him.  Oohh.

Yerp, I think that's all I have in my mind right now.  I am 30 minutes away to see my new boss to report duty, and to see the new team that I will linger around for the next couple of years.

See you guys soon....

I suited up with black and grey attire. Dressed safe. Vibrant attire is a big no-no on anyone's first day at work. Its a neat look.  But I'm thinking of wearing sport-shoes to work than these aching heels.

London: Trafalgar Square

Happy Saturday everyone!...How was your week?  I had a good one.  Hope yours were too.

I would like to continue documenting our family trip to the UK, here at the blog through the photos, and would like to share it with you guys.  It may not contain the whole description of the journey but it dictates our 9 days stay at the UK.

In London, we either took a bus or just walked from Church Street.  The buses facilities are very convenient, the cheapest, and most importantly baby friendly.  It only requires you to buy an Oyster Card.  With 4£ per person, you can tour the whole London.

The bus route interchange map. The system is so easy to understand.

Our 3rd day mini adventure brought us from Church Street to Trafalgar Square.  I always remember this place as one of the location in TV3 drama:  'Cinta Antara Benua' played  by Ahmad Idham and Azhar Sulaiman.  This was the location where the heroin walked at the square, through a flock of pigeons, wearing baju kurung with a  baseball jacket. Fashion antara benua...

I would say the square serves the same purpose as our own Dataran Merdeka.  Roughly two centuries ago, King George IV commissioned the architect John Nash to redevelop the area that being assumed as the center of London.  Nash envisioned forming an open square in the Kings Mews (King's Stable) which was built since the 14th century.

At the center, impose the statue of Admiral Nelson's that commemorate his victory and heroic death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.  Now, the square is being used for public and tourist attraction.

Friends With Benefits....

My husband watched this picture on his day off and called me up that he loved it and he said it is similar as what we did a couple of years ago (except for the sex thingy).  I watched it and yerp it brought us back to memory lane.

I knew Mr Shan since we were 19.  I was the thinnest, smallest in my gang and he was for his.  These two gangs combined and becoming a circle of friends of 20.  The big gang was later created pairs of couples and for some reasons the remaining  were just chasing one girl, my best friend, and that left me and him with none.

Even that happened, we had a great fun of 4 - 5 years together as a group.  In between those years, I managed to find myself a fling and Mr Shan was hooked up with a girl.  

Anyway, since the day I met him, I've never failed to not to look for him after classes, or the time when we skipped classes, well at least twice a week.  Every night before I go to sleep I would go to their house, find him and tell him my story of the day.  We enjoyed our each other's company even though we had boyfriend/girlfriend at that time.  That lasted for years even when we were graduated and then working.

Finally at year 6 of our friendship, he took a break from his gf for a year and hearing that, I broke off with my crappy bf.  The next day we met, we decided on to have a 'Love Contract'.  We would act as a couple, we will spend each day together and basically we do what any other couples would do.  Just for the sake of understanding what a girl and a boy expect in a relationship.  No feelings incurred.  I put my terms and conditions and he put his.  If something wrong happens, 'Yes Its Okay. Cause We Are Just Friends'.    

A year passed by.  The act fit in well with us.  Its unexplainable.  We are friends but at the same time we benefit from each other.  It was a great year for us.  Unfortunately one fine evening, Mr Shan's gf called up, to pick up whatever they had left before.  I was so nervous, full of hope, but well ready for any consequences.   I knew that I love this guy and whatever happens, as we said, we still remain as friends.

No big drama then.  Obviously, I won his heart and still winning it.  We tied the knot months after that.  We are still friends even after 12 years.  We realized that we never wanted to spend our time with anyone else than each other.  The End.
