Hectic

Hello again! I just got in the office this morning after a week-long break. Just a quick update before work gets in the way.

Well, to sum it up, it was a hectic week.

The Jakarta trip was cancelled because i) MrNordin couldn’t get away from work at the very last minute, ii) my youngest brother could not take leave, and iii) my second brother was admitted to a hospital for viral fever. I had to cancel all 13 tickets which had been paid in advance (that’s about RM5k in total). Nak buat macamana? To change to a different date pun, kena bayar extra charges. Further, we couldn’t decide when the next best date would be for everyone to travel together. So in the end, we decided to let it burn. Tak apalah, tak ada rezeki. Perhaps next time.

Since I was still on leave, we decided to go down to JB to follow MrNordin to work. He has been quite stressed out lately due to work pressure. I feel sorry for him and I wish I could do more to help. I shall not discuss about it here but suffice to say that the reason why we tagged along was just to give him our moral support. We were in JB for 4 solid days. It was raining mostly, but I managed to steal some quiet times with him over a late night supper and breakfast on a rainy Sunday morning. And that was nice...

Oh yes! The Makcik Bloggers meeting this Sunday is still on, by the way. So far, 14 people have indicated their interests in coming and that’s a good number! I can’t wait! Can you please e-mail me your mobile number so I can contact you directly on the venue (should there be any changes at the last minute)? My e-mail is this: ladyluck_m2001@yahoo.com.

Ok, I've to go now. Will write more later. Cheers!

Kak Teh,

Madam Tai Tai said...

I confirm datang! Tick my name in the list ok.

Haiyaa..thot you were living it up in Jakarta. What a waste of money for the tickets! Tak sedekah kat orang aje?

Tak pe lah tak de rezeki, apa nak buat. But at least you did something good for MrN. I'm sure he was very pleased to have all of you in JB with him.

See you on Saturday at my mum's house, ok!

tireless mom said...

Hi BJ

I pun thot you dah ber masaj masaj at Jakarta. Tak pelah blessing in disguise. At least you get time out with Mr N kan. I know you like that so much.

If my flight tak ada complication, maybe I can make it on Sunday. 50 50. My sis will tahu I can make it or not and let you know that day. Tapi nak sangat jumpa you all.

Coincidently on 28th the following Sunday tu, at the same place, we are having Srikandi 83 gathering. Makan and ketawa je end year ni.

MrsNordin said...

Mdm/TM,

Ya lah... tak de rezeki nampaknya nak pegi Jakarta this time around. Perhaps there's a blessing in disguise, I don't know.

Yatt, please TRY and make it this Sunday, if you can. I'd love to see you and Kay there together.

Have a good trip to Phuket. Enjoy yourself and leave all your worries behind..

MrsNordin said...

Kay,

I'm so looking forward to meeting you all. Too bad Yatt can't make it... but there's always another time.

Yes, the Jkt trip was off. Tak apalah... next time, insyaallah.. I see that you're back from Perth. Glad you and family had a good time there.

Cheers!
