Month: November 2010

All i want for Christmas…

Its a peaceful night tonight. No noisy sound from the neighbors or some mat rempit with their bike ..Just the sound of the water at the swimming pool beside my apartment..Peaceful…

December comes in few days, and so do my little prayer-will God give me the chance? In a few days, i will know, and everything will change. I really looking forward for that change in my life..and of course the good one 🙂

I had stop dreaming for other things to happen, and its weird to fell nothing now. Its feel like, i really don’t care anymore.

  But God…i want this, uhm…maybe as Christmas present for me? He he he. I never quite for something that i really pray for-even how tough it was. Pleeeeeessseeee 😀

i’ll decorating my home with big Christmas tree this year! Can’t wait for it! 😀

The Adat

When my friend Lita announce that her boyfriend had proposed, all of us-the girls, with eye open wide started screaming ‘shut upp!!!!’, and get really excited. Well of course starting to ask how he propose, when, how she react and stuffs..ha ha..

She officially announce her E day via face book, using cutely created video and start busy with all her E day preparation :).

During discussion with families on her E day programs, well of course custom ‘adat‘ is the main discussion. Of course as a young generation, we have a very little knowledge in adat, and sometimes confuse on why should we have to follow it.

One of the interesting adat we come to know is during the engagement the man’s family (of course including himself) have to go back before the sunset. I haven’t get to know the main purpose, but as the elders says, it is so wrong for the family of the fiance and himself, to stay at the girl’s house on the engagement day. If the man is not from the same area, they can stay until night, but they still have to go back on the same day. No stay back until morning. This adat usually practiced by Penampang Kadazan, and Dusuns. Hmm..not sure about other race.

One of my friend who married a Dutch, actually having a hard time explaining to him about the adat. Of course for him, it doesn’t make sense at all. But having the respect of the adat, he and his representative checked in to nearest hotel for the night. Ha ha..cool!

Its really interesting to get to know all Dusun’s adat actually. Especially when its something that i never heard of before. There must be a reason on all the adat, and i always believe that our tribe’s adat need to be honored, even how much world has changed.

The Friendship and The Langs

It was 9 years back when all of us, met at KIK Matriculation. Me and Nana in Biology Class, Kuyung,Lita,Jack in Physics Class and Jess the only one in Accounting Class.

Maybe being ‘released’ from secondary school, away from family makes us close to each other. Those were the old good days, that created the friendship that will  last forever.

 I am the only one who actually from different school, and district. Ha ha…All of them from Keningau and this is the Ranau girl :D..

 In just 1 year, we become very close like sisters,  friend and family. We do almost everything together. Luckily we were not all in the same class…if not..hmmmm..

(Jess, Lita, Me, Jack)

I met Tracy, Ladyia and Olly  some years after that. 3 of them were  friends of the girls back to secondary school and we get along very well as well…

(Jack, Me, Lita, Jess, Kuyung)
And last Saturday our very own Jack finally get married with her high school boyfriend..he he..As the good forever friend, we give her all our ‘Girl Power’ on her big day! Its a real fun to celebrate our best girl friend’s wedding, all girls with all the stupid jokes, teasing and laugh..

 Nana married with 2 beautiful children, and same goes with Tracy. But yea, friendship never had limits. They are still the HOT MAMA..! 🙂

 (Me, Tracy, Jess, Lita, Ladyia)
Sometimes i really miss the those time, when we always have each other..but yea, we all now have our own life, family and responsibility. Even tho we can’t spend times together, everyday, as before..it makes us more closer by heart.
To the Langs , look at us now, we all have our own career and life, and  lesser time to hang out. But in our heart, we always be the girl like we used to be..We grow up, become a woman, think and act like one. But only when we together (ONLY ah hehe) we can do stupid things, talk rubbish , mocking people and laugh out loud like we own this world..
4th Dec will be Lita’s ‘E’ Day!! Yayyy…having the girls back to Keningau..see you there lovely Langseus!!

November says Hello..

As i can’t stop the time from moving, i can only complain, it moving way too fast..

I remember when i was in my primary school, every year, i will wait for December to come..And it seems too long- the waiting. I have to go through 3 semesters, some 2 weeks school break and then only come the ‘cuti panjang’ long holiday. And every month is like a year..and a year like..uhm..10 years? ha ha..

Another month for Christmas, and there’s no cuti panjang for me anymore. Sometimes i wonder, why didn’t i take a long long holiday after i graduated, but started work to fast? Maybe i’m so energetic those days. Trying as quick as i can to start a career. Its been five years….and i never really have more than 2 weeks for my own…Its all about work work and work..

Here in Sabah, life is all about taking the opportunity. There’s a lot of things i can do, and work for. I started join Tupperware to gain knowledge in business. And it never fail me, i did learn a lot when i join it. The money i earn from it not as much as the knowledge i gain.. Well, maybe yea, people will look at it as some MLM thingy, it is. But i am just not the kind who will see things as other people see..To be frank, i didn’t really see the thing that i have to sale to gain profit..But i see something, the connection of other thing from it…

Maybe i did grow up, and my surviving skills become better, he he.But one thing i learn in life, is that, handwork is important. You can be smart, but without implementation, anything can be just a dream..You can be the mommy’s girl, or the sweetheart, but you need to grow up-be a strong woman. Because you can’t be a little girl forever.

Anyway, its just Nov 2010…I am young in my 20s! And i am enjoying my life! 🙂

I am so thankful to my late Grandma, who really taught me a lot about handwork.She’s just a typical Dusun woman who will work so so and i mean it soooooooo hard, in everything she do…RIP Ina..
