Tag-o-rama

This is me, de-stressing.

Was tagged by NK some few entries ago, and it so happens that I’m in the mood for the tagging business.

First tag.

1) Take a recent picture of yourself or take a picture of yourself right NOW!. 2) DON’T change your clothes, DON’T fix your hair…just take a picture. 3) Post that picture with NO editing. 4) Post these instruction with your picture. 5) Tag 10 people to do this.

My phone doesn’t have a camera (It’s a 4 year-old Nokia 6610 which still functions VERY WELL despite multiple falls and toilet misfortunes HAHA. And I intend to keep this baby of mine until I earn enough moolah to buy myself a Blackberry. Which will be lagi 2 years kot?) and my digital camera apparently eats alkaline battery for breakfast, hence the pictureless post.

Next tag.

A wedding tag. 🙂 A few of my girlfriends are getting engaged/married very soon, so I’ve been indulging in their wedding fantasies a bit too much that I just have to come up with my own set of answers! Mind you I have a very limited imagination and I enjoy being practical, so what you read here might materialize sebijik-sebijik during the wedding. If it’ll ever take place lah. LOL.

1.How old are you?
22.

2. Are you single?
Very.

3. In what age do you think you’ll get married?
Hmmh. I’d say around 28-30. Considering a woman’s short reproductive age and to avoid cancer risks, I don’t oppose the idea of tying the knot even earlier than that though. Nuha said and I quote – “The clock is ticking!

4. Do you think you’ll be marrying the person you are with now?
Not applicable.

5. If not, who do you want to marry?
Mister Right. The one I fall head over heels for. The one who make me go weak at the knees.

6. Do you want a garden/beach wedding, or the traditional wedding?
A garden wedding! I do want some traditional aspects incorporated because I’m just conventional like that. Beach wedding won’t work for me, nanti tudung kulop y’all. LOL.

7. Your ideal motif?
WHITE, with blue irises/orange lilies as deco. But if were to pick a colour, a light shade of orange would be nice. But it depends on the colour of the groom as well. Ehem.

8. Where do you plan to go on a honeymoon?
MONACO!! Basically anywhere nice with a kick ass hotel service because as newlyweds we would wanna spend more of our time indoors….right? Haha.

9. How many guests do you think you’ll invite?
I have a BIG family, so a small intimate event won’t work for me. Probably a thousand guests.

10. Do you want an extravagant wedding or a simple wedding?
A classy, sophisticated one.

11. Do you want the traditional vows or something you’d make up on your own??
I’ll totally make up something on my own, and it’ll be as corny as hell so you’ve been warned! And it’d be nice if he would somehow emulate Preston Burke’s vow and put a little twist to make it sound his own.

12. How many layers of cake do you want to have?
A sumptuous 2-tier red velvet cake, covered in white icing swirls and topped with sugar roses.

13. Do you prefer having your reception at a hotel or at a simple place?
Hotel receptions would cost a bomb, plus it won’t accommodate a lot of guest. So at home it will be. A destination wedding would be nice, but it would be a hassle to plan for. Not practical.

14. When do you want to get married, evening or morning?
Doesn’t matter, as long as it doesn’t interrupt waktu solat and tak panas. I don’t wanna mess my make-up!

15. You’d rather have your reception outdoors or indoors?
Outdoors, please.

16. Do you like a grand entrance for your groom/bride?
Yes!

17. Name the song/tune you’d like played at your wedding?
These 3 songs will be played on heavy rotation : Carpenter’s Close To You, Dewa 19’s Kasidah Cinta, and Edwin McCain’s I Couldn’t Ask For More.  And he has to sing me Angel by Jack Johnson to which I would reply with Love Is You by Chrisette Michele. Hoho.

18. Are you a morning person or a night person?
A night person. I am veryyyy cranky in the morning sans my coffee fix.

19. Do you want a solemn ceremony or a light one?
A light one.

20. What age do you want to get married?
Hmmmh. 28 ish? After internship, definitely.

21. Describe your ideal husband/wife.

BLACK,BALD,BUFF,LOOKS LIKE TYSON BECKFORD,SINGS LIKE JOHN LEGEND,

Just someone who gets me. Someone who is funny, witty, intellectual, confident but self-deprecating, adventurous, and spiritual. Someone who respects me, my family, and my friends. Someone who will not stand in the way of my ambitions, and supports me throughout the way. Andddd kalau boleh someone who is not a doctor. Cukuplah aku sorang je geek.

I’d like to think that all the aforementioned qualities are actually achievable. Insha-Allah. 🙂 (Yes Dinie, I remain optimistic!)

22. Do you prefer fine dining or just the normal spoon & fork/knife?
Normal fork and spoon. Tangan pun ok.

23. Champagne or red wine?
Neither.

24. Honeymoon right after the wedding or days after the wedding?
Right after! I doubt if that is possible though, because my mom had always said that “Lepas habis majlis, pengantin kena tolong sental periuk“. But we’re definitely getting a caterer so there’ll be no periuk to sental la kan?

25. Money or household item?
Tak kisah. Surprise me!

26. Who will pay for the bills?
Both of us will.

27. Are you ready for married life?
As for now, hell no.

28. Do you think you will still be a virgin until u get married?
Definitely. But quoting NK, “Unless John Legend/James Mc Avoy/Thierry Henry is all alone with me on a deserted island. Hahahaa.”

29. Will you always be true to your wife/husband?
Always will. And hopefully it’ll go both ways too. I’ll beat the crap out of him if  he cheats haha.

30. How many kids do you like?
2-3. No twins please. Too much to handle at one time.

31. A new house for a newly wed or an old one?
A new one. Probably a cosy apartment for two in the suburbs of KL. Kot-kot I marry a millionnaire, a place like The Troika is an option too. Ngee.

32. Will you celebrate silver wedding, gold wedding, or diamond wedding?
Doesn’t really matter. But I do want to have something like a vow-renewal ceremony when we get older, to reaffirm our love and whatnot. Sweeeet.

33. What kind of cuisine would you like for your wedding?
Fusion. East meets west. Will it be too much to ask for kambing golek? Oh and a dessert bar is a must!

34. Will you record your honeymoon in a cd or dvd?
Dvd. Cd mesti takkan muat.

I’m tagging my UPM mates: Farah, Munie, Anot, Lynn and Nana. De-stress people! Hahaa

Be A Gooner, Be A Giver

Clichy wears a PINK wig! ROFLMAO!

Things could turn sweeter if we can wipe that smug look off Gerrard’s face come Sunday.

Do us proud, Boys.

Pilahdelphia

So the 28 of us were shooed away to the district of Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan for 6 weeks of Community Medicine posting. Little did we know that it was the posting that would change our lives collectively, in one way or another.

Putting aside the academical aspect, this is the best posting everrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Enjoy tak ingat punya. We had so much free time on our hands, so we filled em up with daily badminton/football/touch rugby games, baling selipar, and the girls even had aerobics at the vacant lecture hall in the evenings!

And the ‘trip’ wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t take the chance to explore some interesting eateries around Kuala Pilah. Our favs included a Chinese restaurant in Kuala Pilah Government Rest House, Kuey Tiaw Kerang Special at Taman Sri Juasseh(tapi abang kedai tu kerek), Kedai Roti Special in Bahau (roti ice cream!), Cendol at Kuala Pilah Bus Station as well as a roadside stall selling Karipap Panas+Air Kelapa Muda on the way to Juasseh. We certainly left Kuala Pilah with a few more pounds gained, no doubt.

Oh and the roadtrips.

Jeram Tengkek

Jeram Tengkek is by far the best waterfall I have visited in yonks. This jeram has everything you look for in a waterfall – crystal clear water, moderate current, and challenging slopes. If you happen to pass by Kuala Pilah, do pay a visit to this hidden treasure near Batu Kikir. It is definitely better than the overrated Ulu Bendul, but you’ll encounter piles and piles of cow dung along the way, so beware!

We also had weekend getaways to PD, Melaka, and other historical places like Istana Seri Menanti and Teratak Za’aba during the 6 weeks. I know it sounds very touristy, but trips with the groupmates were never a bore.

If it hadn’t been for our stay in Kuala Pilah, I probably wouldn’t know a lot of random facts about my groupmates. For instance, Gi Ni’s selamba habit of parking his big ass Honda Civic at inappropriate places (like, tengah-tengah jalan), or the fact that Lini is actually a kaki shopping extraordinaire behind her ayu and shy exterior. We shared so many inside jokes that when we got back to KL for the exams, it was harder to communicate with the rest of the class because they just don’t get the jokes HAHAHA.

Love is also in the air for a pair of lovebirds in the class, and hopefully all goes well for them. ❤

I know we’re all back to being our usual kiasu selves in OBGYN now, but I LOVE YOU GUYS! Hopefully the faculty won’t separate us next year. 😦

Anyhoots, Pilahdelphia rocks!
