Recap Of Life

I was going to make a one year one post but a year and three months passed before I realized that oops, not one year one post then >_<.
Without further ado let's start the recap of 2016.

2016 started with a bit on depressing side, work is tiring and getting worse and worse, boss was super stressing and no raise pay happened. I started to seriously trying to find a new better job.

On April I got 2 job offers, wow me! I chose one and rejected the other. By June I've quit the job I was working for the past 2.5 years and started on the new job that promised better pay, better colleagues and better working situation.

On July, I was jobless and unemployed. Turned out the job that I chose was even worse than my former job and the owner was a scammer/frauder/flat out liar.

To cut the story short, since the I have been looking for a new job and is back being a freelancer; doing admin consultancy, baking, etc.

inside in it's pretty depressing and entirely not a good life, 2016 was. And now is March 2017 and I haven't got stable job I'm looking for yet.

Outside looking in, people never can guessed what's happening in me. They always think my life is steady peaceful and overall okay. well if only they knew lol. But there's no point in telling someone your miserable pathetic story if that someone can't even be a good listener or being a good friend, let alone trying to help ease your burden of life, hah.

I should stop this post here, because basically that's it. no needs for further details imo. It's a recap, not a point by point review lol.

So now, dear ol me, all the best wishes for yourself after this, I need a helluva good luck to survive.

Sincerely, me.

At The End Of 2015

Well Hello..... it's been few years.

A bit recap: 2011 was crazy, the moment in my life where there are more bad things happen than the good ones. 2012 was worse, It was crazy and painful and full of angst. 2013 was when things finally start moving on albeit with bruises everywhere. 2014 was full of many things such as a new place to live and I was officially rebuilding my new life with healing bruises from before.

And 2015. There are few turning points and meaningfull means in this year.

First and the most important is that when I realized that even though my life has felt better than two years before, it still not going anywhere. I have goals and for them to be reached and fulfilled, I need to make changes in my life once again. First is to start a job hunt again ((the current job situation is not healthy. It's not comfortable at all, psychologically. The place is toxic)). By early next year at the latest, I have to find a better place to work.  

Second is that we have to move once again coz darling landlord one-sidedly canceled our still six month lease and 'asked' ((demand)) us to empty the house by the end of the year. Talk about not proffesional and all other bad attitude personality. Went on a house hunt like crazy for a month and Thank God at least now it's settled. A bit farther away but nearer to a train station and within 5km from the nearest Toll gate so.. yeah. That's the few only perks but still better than none ((a reminderto self  that no matter what I have to able to buy my own house in less than 2 years ahead)). Hope the new house will accompany us to a better future, amen.

Third, I feel I've matured and grown up more. Heh. There's really no stopping in learning things for someone. I understand that wholly now, or at least better. By learning it's not 'studying' theories or the likes. But more to understanding things emotionally and how you socially live yourlife fully and nicely, with respect and honour.

Fourth, siblings are still an itch under your skin that you can't dig out no matter what. While parents are children, just bigger in size. I don't have to have a child to know what it feel to be living with one. Try two at the same time. Yeap, darling mom and dad lol.

I'm anticipating 2016. Highly. I really want to taste big, oustanding turning points in my life that haven't yet ever happened to me. ((Buying my own house for an example :D. Or having that perfect job)).


Thank you 2015, for the great lessons and wisdoms.

And looking forward for you 2016!!! Bring it on!!!!

Greeting!

It's finally truly exists, the journal of me! Which took about thousands of days before I finally decided yes, I'm going to have one and really going to make one.

To whoever who'd get stumbled here, let me say welcome to you. Hope you'd be an open minded person.  It's near the end of the world so please be mindful and kind, you don't know when you're going to die so make the best of every second of your life.

My Homemade Buns 01



I have lots of free time since last month. Since my studies are in 'holiday' period. And there hasn't any new translating job to do.

I've been in a mood for baking nowadays, to fill my time basically, but I found my self to be enjoying it very much.
I have always loved baking. Be it making cookies, cakes, bread or baked meals. But bread has always been my least achievement in baking :p..
So I really really want to succeed in baking some yummy, soft or flaky, satisfying bread.
So I dig out my old recipe books. However, one look at them i found my self not wanting to try those recipes. Coz I remember when I tried them years go, they weren't good and needs to many imported ingredients that are expensive and quite difficult to get here. So I looked for some new recipes from the internet.   

And well, here are few of the 'good' result :)

This are the assorted sweet buns. There are Cinnamon buns, Chocolate buns and plain buns. My mum praised the cinnamon ones, not surprising coz it's her favorite bread after croissant.  
For me, this breads are good enough, okay, for a first try :). BUt the crust is still a bit hard. A bit too dry I guess.

 


This is bacon & cheese buns. I like this better than the cinnamon bun coz it's softer and fluffier.
Made this few days after the first batch ( the assorted buns). There were few Kaya Buns too but my dad ate it before I managed to take a picture of it >_<.


And this one, is a pastry actually, not a bread. Made it for my friend's son's one-month party.
She wanted an edible souvenir for the guests to bring back home and she chose this as one of the goodies :). This sticks are very highly appreciated. Everyone seems a bit crazy over it :).
I'm very satisfy with it. It's very cheesy, a bit soft inside and no artificial additional ingredients at all. 


So far, I'm satisfied with the result. Even though the bread isn't anywhere like those the bakery boutique made out there :p.. But the taste are edible enough to make my parents and their friends to grab one more. So, yeah, ^^.

That's all for now, I have to clean up the kitchen heeeh...
Ja~

What Is Your Card?


I quite like a test which you can't guessed what the result would be. Like this one :)



You are The Tower


Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.


The Tower represents war,
destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views
and ideas will change as a result.


The Tower is a card about war, a
war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The
Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for
real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It
sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring
down beliefs that are so well constructed. What's most important to
remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful,
makes room for something new to be built.


What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.




Copy and paste the code in this box if you wish to display the results on your blog, webpage or Livejournal.

Feels Like Just Got Trolled!!

I feel duped. Trolled, stupid...

I was in a bookstore, trying to find a book that might interest me. After more than 15 minutes in the fiction department, I decided that no, I don't think I'm going to buy anything coz there's no new or old books that interest me. But suddenly there's this guy, he works there, he was tidying the shelf, asked me, "cari apa mba?" (what are you looking for?) I said that I was just looking around but the I can't find the book that I want. He asked again what's the title of the book that I want, I grabbed one and showed it to him; "here, this is the third book, I'm lookin gfor the 1st one." XD. I'm pretty sure the 1st book is not available coz it's out of print since months ago. And he went blblblblba on "oh we ran out of this book, is there any other that you'd like, why don;t I recommend some?" and just because, I nodded and he went "this book.." I went, "READ it already." and so on. I was getting impatient and was desperately trying to get away >_< so finally I just say, "just give me one book that you like, maybe I haven't read it and maybe I'd be interested to read it." He grab a book and said, "This one, it's fantasy, and you like those kind right? (yeah I like fantasy/YA books -_-) and this is the 1st book, the 2nd one has been published too, so if you like it, you could get the 2nd book too." I took it, look at the cover, it seems a little interesting (wondering to my self why I never saw it before) and said thank you.

Once I got home, I open the plastic and start reading. It's my habit to open the beginning of the pages, where the copyright and writers and so on is printed. I just want to know when was this book written and all. SO I was surprised to see that it's a new book, (2010). Read it again and trying to find what's the publisher and who's the translator and lalalala, there's no information on that. That's when I realized one true fact: IT"S NOT A FOREIGN BOOK. THAT'S WHY IT DOESN'T HAVE A TRANSLATOR. AND THAT'S WHY THERE'S NO PUBLISHER LIKE BANTAM/HARPER'S/YADA YADA PRINTED ON THE PAGE.

*HEADDESK*

NO wonder I never saw it before, I always stay away from local fantasy/YA genre wannabe books, just not my cup of tea. Don't judge me, I like many local novels, local fantasy novels is just not one of them.
