spotted

it’s a very busy schedule for S daily even though she looks like she is not doing anything at all.

then again, ‘busy’ is an understatement. more to hectic.

in work, in personal life, in family and last but never the least — in cats.

are things beginning to prosper?
one can never tell — not even yours truly.

rumour has it S is in a relationship. but where art thou is the beau?

you really have to be careful of what you wish for. you want a husband, you will get it, along with other things that you do not want that comes with this package called ‘husband’. in a way, i find that my life has not changed 360 degrees, not even a full ten degrees to begin with. it’s not even a matter of too-early-to-say when things have been fast forwarded already, but it does remained to be materialized.

well… good luck, S.

just for the heck of lipsticks and such

it’s been awhile i’ve blogged something like this, i want to know how different is the feeling of the aftermath.

am i really officially colder?

oh yea, before we start, there are two things i’ve been hearing from people that i find it hard to believe. things i heard from people, about moi, none other yours truly here.

one — that i am getting prettier. okay, there are a few notable people i thanked too, albeit not to their face, because, well, it’s Suessy Suraya Suhaimi. there’s always a plausible reason she’s a frenemy to certain people — but she doesn’t bite the hands who fed her. rather, they found a new pet, or, treated her like a runner for their errands.

see?

back to imgettingprettier. previously she have heard of people raving about her bestie whose beauty graph chart increased each moment. a person who just gets prettier and prettier. amazing. i could never live up to that.

but apparently, as we speak, people commented that i am. despite still being dentally challenged.

thank you.

second — get this: i lost weight. lost? seriously? especially after the fasting month. seriously? i still feel bloated, huge and wide. but they say i sooo am.

if that is true, then, OhMG, i must’ve been way bigger and huge-r than now.

nevertheless, thank you.

now back to business.

+ in the voice of a la Gossip Girl +

it takes more than simply being nineteen days ahead to invite a waldorf to your party, especially after what you did to a waldorf. don’t take it for granted that you were once close to her, and then she walked away. for plausible reasons. not that you have done anything to proved otherwise anyway.

despite being alone and trapped in her own depression state of mind and losing a handful of bridesmaids, S is very well booked off throughout the year. to the point she hated for what she was booked for.

a whirlwind of romances and flings and assholisms as the new cult one should always avoid, S is currently seen frolicking around between music notes and leaves of books with a tall, artsy-fartsy companion.

it is unknown though widely speculated but S does not settled with anyone. she is just having a good year. so far.

therefore —

for the heck of it, okay, read that? chill, aku takkan menyemakkan letter box kau atau bersusah payah handwrite this. aku send text terus —

sorry, can’t make it for your engagement. will be in penang til tuesday. thanks for the invite, have a wonderful day!

hm. best jugak getting back to blogging with the required capital letters. nampak cantik.

so, the word of the day is — cantik.

there. habis lunch time aku blogging. it’s been fun revisiting.

the azubirian kids had a party last night and went home the next day

the day before yesterday, i realized i did girly stuffs with my cousins.

we went to a pharmacy and spent twenty minutes choosing a hair colour after we decided to get our hair coloured together, while dba ran around the premise replenishing her toiletries needs.

we got back to the flat and had our hair coloured, went to a party, strolled along the night market looking for flops and dba bought a cocktail ring, got back home and watched a sappy romance movie.

they’re going through hell tonight

on the third night in penang, on the way back from kepala batas with the happiest and blissful thoughts i’ve ever had in all my twenty-seven Eids, azmie broke it with two words, “eh, gaduh…”

mum awoke immediately from her slumber at hearing them and she panicked, telling us to lock the already locked doors of ms lilac.

we saw someone full of rage, kicking with all his might to an unseen victim. when we passed in front of them, we saw someone already KO on the sidewalk, cradled by his three waling friends. azmie said he saw the skull cracked and dripped blood.

and i thought, theyre going through hell tonight.

kesian. immigrants. born with hardship in life. merantau ke negara orang. nak cari rezeki untuk hidup lebih selesa sedikit. tapi, malam ni they are going through hell. kena sepak terajang. pasti kena ugut lepas dimaki hamun. meratap tengok kawan kena bantai sampai tak sedar diri. lagi histeria tengok darah. nak fikirkan macam-macam. nyawa, duit yang seperti tak tercapai dalam tangan. hendak merayu, menagih, mengadu pada siapa?

kemudian kes arwah dato’ sosilawati. setelah melalui pahit jerih hidup, akhirnya dapat hidup selesa dengan harta yang dikumpul. rumah besar, kereta mewah, pendidikan yang baik untuk anak-anak. semua yang dapat diberikan untuk menjamin masa depan yang cerah.

tapi, bertemu dengan someone yang full of greed, ditambah dengan tanpa hati perutnya itu — keempat-empat mereka dipukul, ditikam, dibunuh dan dibakar. kalau tengok lelaki kena sepak terajang pun menyayat hati, apetah lagi perempuan yang kena. just the same thoughts of mine, they went through hell that night.

a sheltered life?

when in penang, suessy screws any existing diet

may 21st
we’re heading to penang for the weekend to attend the engagement of my cousin, azmie, on saturday. mum and i are pretty excited to arrive at the isle as early as possible so we planned to have breakfast at section 14 after dropping my brother at school. there’s a kedai lontong mak yah, where you may have to lined up for almost an hour and the lontong could finish as fast as the first three hours it opens — your rezeki really counts. i love to order the lontong sotong where i specifically ask for no sambal, extra kuah kacang and only the janggut part of the sotong. the guy is pretty generous with the janggut because mum said not everyone likes it. turns out, mum and i got up late after late night making the chocolate hazelnut cookies as one of the engagement offerings. we shared halves of mcdonald’s big n’ tasty. i had mine with a cup of oldtown white coffee.

we left the haus around ten a.m. and as i drove up to north, i had half a bottle of coke and a bag of potato chips, original flavour. these days i have low tolerant for other flavours, the basic one is always the best. we stopped at r&r tapah where mum just wants to hang out there because it’s a weekday and there’s no traffic at its parking lot. mum had keladi masak asam and some green veggies on top of white rice. i wasn’t hungry and i have no idea what to eat but just because we were sitting in front of a nasi ayam stall, i had one of those — roasted. it was too salty since they poured soy sauce on the plate before putting on the rice. i only ate half of it.

we arrived penang around one p.m. but because mum badly wanted to buy something for afiq, azmie’s two-year-old nephew, we stopped at a shopping mall first hence arriving at the actual location — azmies haus — at three p.m.. when we arrived, the smell of my aunt’s delicious curry lingers. then again, i’m not a fan of curry. we settled around the haus and we were served late-lunch-almost-hi-tea. we brought with us some raw ikan keli and roe of ikan sembilang for the haushold. immediately, my aunt put some of the roe into her curry as she reheats it. mum had the fish curry with rice. i had some of the roe because i’m a big fan but mostly i was indulging with my aunt’s sweet and sour garoupa. she puts in lots of onion slices which i really like and i feel it is as good as any veggies.

later we had this decadent dessert of cold bubur pulut hitam with evaporated milk. i don’t fancy bubur pulut hitam much but anything’s good with evaporated milk, eh? i had two bowls. and then, i helped myself to homemade shrimp currypuffs. my aunt made them — chicken, beef, shrimp — and sell them frozen. at the time, my aunt was making a batch of the beef currypuffs for an order. i topped some of the minced meat on top of my currypuffs. she’s making it in smaller size these days, i never bother to know why but i like them better.

we had a small birthday party for my aunt who turned sixty-two. azmie’s brother, alane came over with his wife, alina and their son, afiq, towed with present and a blackforest cake.

nescafé with sugar is served around the clock.

mum and my aunt went to alane’s haus for last minute preparation while azmie and i went to pick up my brother at the bus station — he came down after he took his history test at school. we stopped at a mamak restaurant, and the boys had rice, curry and fried chicken for my brother, tandoori chicken for azmie. i said i won’t take any dinner, but i was inkling for kue tiow goreng with fried chicken. it was not a good one, i only finished the chicken.

my cousins keep pointing out my biceps. they said i am fat now — its their very first comment after six months — but then they realized it’s only my biceps and that i am still slim. not much comfort, though, the weight scale at sime darby medical centre don’t lie.

may 22nd
alane’s haus is the pit stop for the whole entourage to gather before heading to the engagement. i got up and found my mum arranging the newly fried currypuffs in a box to bring it there. i asked one from her because it smells so good, still warm and its puff is crispy.

for breakfast, my aunt made briyani vermicelli with lots of cabbage and carrot slices. my brother and i don’t fancy it that much, we had some and our mum finished it off. we feasted on the nescafé and the homemade currypuffs.

we went to alane’s haus at 11 a.m. bringing the ironed baju kurungs and shirts, new heels, the frozen currypuffs my pregnant cousin who we are meeting there ordered, two pineapples to make jelatah and the currypuffs in a box. alane ordered somewhat curry-ish looking ayam masak merah, dalca, really red daging masak merah and nasi hujan panas for lunch. alane’s wife, alina, my aunt and mum made jelatah. i was the first to dived in.

we left for the engagement at three p.m.. the weather was really hot and the haus is linda’s granny, azmie’s fianceé-to-be, at one of those malay villages in jelutong. the streets are really narrow, the kind only one-car-at-a-time-don’t-think-about-another-car-coming-from-the-opposite-direction. it was an eleven-car-entourage and at first we wanted to all parked at the surau but then the walk to the haus will not only drenched our clothes but melted the chocolate spirals on my mother’s cookies in five seconds flat. when we finally arrived, we discovered that the haus’ yard is big enough for a decent parking space. the theme was pink down to all linda’s brothers wearing pale pink polo tees. after the introduction, the discussion, official announcement of the wedding date, my aunt putting on the ring on linda’s finger, hi-tea is served. there were pulut kuning, roti jala, kari daging, more currypuffs, kuih bengkang and kuih lompang. i was still full so i only had the kuih lompang which were nicely chilled, not sweet and striking in its shocking pink and sunshine yellow colour with white salted grated coconut on top. they served ice cold syrup drinks and coffee at just the right hotness temperature. it was a good black coffee indeed.

we returned to the alane’s haus after the engagement. i unsuccessfully helped my mum finished her nasi hujan panas, chicken and beef. i just realized that someone brought in sambal ikan kering when alina told me it was nice but i don’t feel like having them. afiq and i helped ourselves to mango jellies — they’re one of the engagement offerings from linda’s side. there was also a moist chocolate cake layered with toffee, i had a small slice. just like at my aunt’s haus, nescafé with sugar is served around the clock, along with tea, black coffee and nescafé with milk and sugar.

may 23rd
breakfast is one my aunt’s famous dishes — sunny side eggs with slices of onions and tomatoes cooked with ghee butter. but first, i had some fried rice with sambal sardin of which she fried the sardines first before cooking it with the gravy which most people said it is a lot nicer. then, i had the egg with the eminent roti benggali. mum said when she was a kid growing up with eleven siblings, they dislike it so much and gardenia bread is considered a luxury. these days my uncle and his son fight for it over soup, especially for the crust slices.

for lunch before we head home, my aunt made fish head curry, kobis masak lemak putih and reheated the leftover sambal ikan kering. i’m everything for the white gravy against the brilliant red so i finally tried the sambal with the cabbage. still, i didn’t eat much because i was still full with breakfast.

we left penang around 3.30 p.m. and arrived kelana jaya at 7.20 p.m.. we stopped at a café for dinner. both mum and my brother had the char kue tiow and i honestly don’t know what to order because i don’t know what i feel like eating since i’m neither full nor hungry. eventually i ordered clear chicken soup with rice but they got my order very late i cancelled it and ordered the char kue tiow to go. when i got home, the gravy is just nicely soaked into the rice noodles. i separated the shrimps from its skin and gave the meat bit by bit to my cat, moeli. i ate the warm noodles with relish and realized that its soy sauce is really, really, really delicious — it was a delicious char kue tiow indeed.

i made a mug of nescafé with sugar and milk and drank a bottle of mineral water. tomorrow, i feel like having pizza for lunch, and my mum and i again planned to go the lontong haus after dropping my brother at school.

it’s been awhile, and i miss this entry series —

+ in the voice of a la gossip girl +

S spotted back in the isle after almost half a year battling with her personal issues in the city. she was first seen at the shopping mall with mum buying heels for the cousin’s very pink engagement the next day. in the evening she was seen with the groom-to-be cousin and sid-vicious-wannabe brother — a la korean (tresses in a clip, a thin metal headband with ribbon detail) and a la LA Candy (long cardy, skinny jeans and ballet flats). S is currently pretty private, rsvp-ing to none and popping only at certain gatherings while inkling to shut down or deactivate her facebook account — its one of those phases. these days she is aggressively reblogging tumblr posts and tending to her four two-month-old kittens.

it’s been awhile also that i avoid listening to my favourite joe flizzow’s tracks but while i’m in penang right now, i only want to listen to him. call me is like a love anthem minus the “too many ladies, too many cities” part.

oh, serena vdw is truly revolting these days. read ’em here, and you might just turn your back to it — you’ve been forewarned. blair is the one last very thin thread for moi and i might just let ’em go altogether. thank god for entourage — come soon, 26th of june!

confirmed by her mother, suessy will not be attending the front seat of the 82nd academy awards this march 8th (MY time). she will be attending to business instead at the nu working place of a woot-woot newly built tower in the hills with instilled dedication so that next year she won’t missed the 83rd academy awards. that is, unless she married a rich harta halal dunia akhirat ebizo ichikawa xi lookalike, or whatever else comes first. aamiiin.

in relation to the above, her nu BFF asked whether suessy watched the 52nd grammy awards to which suessy promptly answered, “sorry, aku tak layan grammys. i only watched the oscars.” along with her l’oréal-mascaraed lashes for a more dramatical effect before heading to the ladies with a roll of kleenex.

suessy is reported to recently received a bootie call at approximately 3 am. when asked how did it go, suessy replied, “some fun we had. some, indeed. some some some. get it?” it was also reported that she received another bootie call the next morning, only two hours earlier, to which suessy has not responded due to the some effect that is unknown.

suessy is inkling for the ketuk² screen-oriented telecommunication device, namely blackberry 9550, but after reading the reviews on her trusted site, gsmarena.com, it wilted her crazy drive to purchased it via credit. in fact, the rest of the other phones’ review, namely htc hero, samsung corby, sonyericsson YARI and AINO have also drove her back to be loyal to the current layla II – SEG705. these days, it is not only enough to have a phone that can take/make calls and write/receive texts, but also WiFi and 3G enabled. with that, you should be thankful with your cellphone already.

after the wedding on valentine’s day, the client was so happy that they paid pharhunt and his partner, yours truly, more than mutually agreed. looks like suessy can add that to her resume and already multi-side incomes.

suessy is now looking forward to reserve her tresses to a tremendous length so that she can do a svdw’s hairstyle. why it is not blair waldorf’s hairstyle being inspired instead is never seriously discussed. supposedly long-hair girls have more fun provided that you are a blonde and loves to party which is pretty much sums up the current state of suessy to avoid minding her ever-ticking biological clock.
