funny how i feel this relates to me personally...

Steve Jobs resigned from Apple.


Tetibe aku plak rasa sedih, like sedih as in my fav boss resigns, camtu.

No, I never worked in apple. J gosh, that would be lovely!

Nor, I am a true fan of his products or him…


But.. (ok, don’t laugh! I take my books seriously, ok?)

I read one of SEP’s books that mentioned him and the struggle of all techies that era.. somewhere 70s, if not mistaken.

Those young ‘uns in Silicon Valley


Although the book (Hot Shot) is about a fictional hero/heroine and fictional company, but they were involved in the whole struggle as the two Steves were.. and the two Steves were mentioned more than once in the book. Like I was there in their initial struggle.


Haha… I couldn’t be any weirder, huh? But still.. I am sad.

Cookies for My Bees

I promised Aqish I’d bake the Famous Amos cookies for her. I somehow misplaced the original recipe.. (I haven’t made them for at least a year!). I told her that I don’t have the recipe. You know what she said?


‘Dekat computer kan ada, Ma? Carik je..’


*scratches my head..

how in the world does she know that we can search recipes in the net??


Anyway, here’s the recipe gotten from the net, as advised by Aqish:


1 bar butter (approx 250g)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla essence
2 cups plain flour
2 1/2 cups oatmeal, blended to powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
340g chocolate chips
250g Chocolate bar, grated
100g nuts (your choice), chopped


1. Preheat oven at 190C
2. Cream the butter and both sugars
3. Add eggs and vanilla, mix evenly
4. Fold in flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda.
5. Add chocolate chips, grated chocolate bar and nuts. Mix well (I used my hands in a food grade plastic bag, as it is too thick for my mixer).
6. Roll into small balls (around 1 inch in diameter) and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet/tray.
7. Bake for 10 minutes at 190 C.


When the cookies are removed, they are soft. But when left cool, it will harden up and become slightly crisp outside (but chewy inside).


I know its kinda last minute but trust me, its all easy peasy! J

Aku phobia.


Malam tadi Hailey susah nak tidur, arching2 badan die and crying VERY loud (nasib baik, I guess?)

Tapi Alhamdulillah dia badan dia x panas.

Dia tak mo putting.

Susu Alhamdulillah minum.. walaupun x sebanyak biasa tapi masih dikategorikan sebagai banyak.



Aku phobia sebab Busyra’s meningitis dulu…


Frens, tolong doakan yeah? So that she is ok?


Eventho you all baca dalam hati, I hope it counts as a doa.


“Ya Allah, kau jauhkanlah Baiduri Hailey dari segala penyakit dan sakit. Sihatkanlah dia, Ya Allah”


Thanks you guys.

books- guylit

I’ve been trying my hands on male authors.. uhm… you know what I mean. (dang, too much of Male thoughts corrupting me mind!! @$!#!!)


I tried a guylit book by Matt Dunn, and I guess, I mistakenly chose ‘Accidental Proposal’ for my first read.

And I was in a freakin’ badmood for the whole 2 weeks! (yes, it took me 2 freakin’ weeks to at last tap that red bar at the end of the ebook- no thanks, Kobo for your ‘easiness’ in cheating reading books!).


Anyway, to summarize what I endured- I HATE IT FULL STOP. Lame and boring giler. Sadly, there was once mentioned somewhere (quotes) that to know how men thinks, read Matt Dunn. I feel sorry for men if this is true. U guys sure have such complicated thoughts.. but you chose the most-not-what-women-would-prefer to be said out loud.


This guy (the hero in this book) reminds me of that ‘Marry Me’ song by Bruno Mars. Giler x romantic cara ko propose.. :p

This Edward, he thought his then girlfriend proposed to him, and he assumed he’s engaged, got the ring bla bla bla…but never ever ever had the decency to really confront his ‘fiance’ on his doubt. Stooooopid. And there were other doubts too.. semua wasn’t confronted. At the end, most of his doubts were cleared by his fiance’s admission, not because he asked, tho! Stooooopid lagi.


And whats with this hero being so thick headed- selalu salah tafsir? C’mon!!

And not trusting his fiancé? I hope not all men (especially ikan) are not like si Edward nih. You have doubts, honey, you come and ask me point blank.


Ke, is this how men view their world? Dang menyedihkan dan menghampakan. I soooo much prefer female chic lit and romance authors. Imagination and women fantasy thumbs up. J

On fb.

Ok, I’m no popular person, not one of those which people dream to be friends with.. but just like blogs, we have our own reason and criteria, do we not?


1-       On accepting friends

Ok, masa zaman memula FB baru muncul dulu, I was like those people who accept anybody, cause the truth is, those times, theres no hanky panky going on in FB. Those requesting are truly acquaintances or friends or whatever. But the reason is connecting, friendship.. and all that crap.


And…. Those times, when a ‘Baiduri Hailey’ requests to be your friend, you definitely know who this Baiduri Hailey is, as in that is her true name. Or some other names you recognize. I don’t mind those. Walaupun the name is shorten to B Hailey or whatever. And then, the photos, they are genuine.. well at least almost 90% of the photos are. I know why some people don’t put their photos- there’s a lot of psychos out there, and your privacy what not… ok. Understood.


But nowadays! OMG! I don’t even know where to begin!


I don’t accept everyone nowadays to tell you the truth. Even though you put your full name.. sebab honestly, sometimes your full name is too fancy hehehhe J. Basic idea is, if you really want to be FB friends, just introduce properly.. they provide you the appropriate fields, didn’t they? Very easy peasy- ‘hey, Hailey ni, your cutest doter’. See..?


Terlanjur bulan ramadhan nih… so, if your friend request happened to be ignored by someone (particularly, moi), don’t take it personal. I may not recognize your fancy mommy-given name J. Sincere apologies by the way.


Oh, and I don’t accept any business whatsoever anymore too.. except personally requested by a trusted friend. ;-)


2-       On leaving wall posts

Honestly, I just prefer to blab everything about my life here.. in this blog. So, its either you’re my friend or you’re just a stranger reading about me.. well, I value my privacy too… corny as it is ;-)


3-       On leaving comments

I do tooo am active in a way in FB! I put comments when I see fit. Even my comments aren’t techy… no tagging (don’t know how), lots of misspellings (blame it on iPod’s dictionary- yes, pathetic me, im one of those whose company blocks FB and im stuck with unblocked internet via wifi through Aqish’s iPod. *sighs…* well, at least ada gak connection, rite? syukurrr


4-       On Posting Pics

Oooohhh… sorry.. I try not to do this. You know, the whole privacy thingy.. tapi, I don’t mind at all if my friends tag me in theirs tho. Im not that private.


(hahah, ikan did upload some of our pics in bandung, I think.. last time.. I don’t mind this, like I said. Meylu but its ok..)


5-       On Blocking/ deleting you from my FB

Tell me, if you think you have been dropped from being a fren in anyone’s FB, do you go and confront the poor girl and ask her why? I mean… cant you get the picture? Paham-paham jelah. I don’t mind if a fren dropped me or blocked me.. they have their own reason, I guess.


Ok, masa awal2 dulu, pernah la aku termistake function from FB and when I wanted to block their posts on my newsfeeds, tetibe I ter block them altogether. Oops, sorry! :p. tapi tu awal2 FB ler… tapi, kalau nak confirm org tu deleted purposely you or not, invite to be your friend again. If she/he doesn’t accept… you NOW know :p


But, this is only me. Lain org, lain cara.

my arwah ayah's birthday today.



‘Ya Tuhanku, kasihanilah kedua-dua ibubapaku sebagaimana mereka mengasihani aku sewaktu aku kecil’
