My friend posted something interesting on Facebook.

Something that goes like, "There are 3 great apples that change this world. The forbidden apple Eve made Adam eat, the apple that fell on Sir Isaac Newton, and the Apple created by Steve Jobs."

Terus I rase nak beli anything Apple just because I want to be a part of something great. Haha, poyo! Mudahnya terpengaruh...

Mark, my travel partner, went to New Zealand without me knowing, so I am like, "Why didn't you tell me?!!!"

Mark: Because you are married.
Me: That's not an excuse! I haven't even been to a honeymoon yet!
Mark: You want to go for your honeymoon with me?
Me: Nooo!!! It's perfect because I can bring my husband and you'd be there to take our photos! Hahahaha...!

I really hate the fact that being married changes how a friendship works.

Hani: You know, maybe, the reason you are pregnant yet is because you haven't gone for a honeeymoon yet. So, go on, go get the mood going!
Me: Pandai ah you buat theory...
Hani: No, really, that's what my dad said...
Okay, so now everybody is talking about my childless marriage eh?

My friend, let's call him Patrick, found out about his father's other wife last year during a vacation overseas. According to Patrick, his father's naughty habit was no secret but he never thought his father would go that far. It hurt him because despite being the first-born, he was the last to know, and his younger siblings seemed indifferent about it. He never found out more about it because ignorance is bliss. He'd rather not acknowledge the fact that his father is polygamous.

This year, he bumped into his father's car in a condominium compound, in a different state!

What a coincidence, eh?

He wanted to play detective.

Me: Eh, I thought his other wife lives in another country? What happened?
Patrick: I don't know...And I don't know whether this is a new woman, or the same wife he brought back.
Me: You know, since everybody in the family knows about it, why don't you just ask him straight?
Patrick: There's no fun in that! Besides, we don't really talk about it.

It's funny at this age, we still feel excited about things like this.

But in the end, of course, the stake-out did not happen because we have too many other important things to do.

I still remember, about 10 years ago, my friend bumped into her uncle doing dirty dancing with a woman half his age in a club. Can you imagine seeing that?

I always talk to Patrick about how modernisation has made the marriage institution less sacred. How it has become widely acceptable in the society, that it is normal to fall in and out of love just like that.

It's sad. I wish to elabprate more on this but this is a sensitive topic. I mean, there are always two sides of a story and who am I to judge?

All I can say is, Kim Kardashian, why!!!

I sometimes envy those people who get to live abroad.

Me? I live in a rural area. I rasa otak I tak berkembang macam ni!

Earlier on, my husband used to apologize to me for bringing me here. But, he no longer does it. Maybe he thinks I am now okay with it.

I am not. Well, at least not now.

One time, we got into a fight because of something small. But do you know how it is like when you suddenly explode? I poured out everything like a volcano.

At that time, my husband had said really hurtful things to me. But, I guess, he was hurt too.

Hey, who would have thought sacrificing, and going through the ups and downs, particularly, together, are actually difficult in practical?

We made up, as usual, like couples do.

Two days after, I received an SMS from Mother. "How are you? I heard the water is bad, scary looking even. Don't use the tap water, buy mineral water instead."

I showed it to my husband and he said like mother, like daughter, and we laughed it off.

See, I am not the only one who's being a diva here! It proves that my concerns are not crazy.

I had a rat in my shoes the other day. Can you imagine, early in the morning, not expecting anything, and suddenly when I was just about to slip my feet into my shoes, a rat came running out from it?!

I swear the rat had bitten my finger a bit. I cried on the way to work. My husband found it amusing. He said it was a frog. Like that would make it any better!

The only consolation despite all this is my husband.

He's been great. He treats me like a princess, me likey, but at night, he treats me like a bolster.


Are all husbands like this?

I need my space when I sleep, but he likes to hug and caress me. He has this habit that his skin must touch mine, as if I would disappear if he lets go. Then, whenever he feels like it, he would put his legs across my body and tightly squeeze me. I feel like a helpless doll.

As much as he interrupts my sleep, making me annoyed and irritated, I could feel the love.

I just spent hours surfing blogs because, you know, I was out of civilisation for a month!

Basically, I am now based at a new workplace. It's different than the old one. From being the only Muslim in the whole department to ---> ALL Muslims in the entire department (who hold the same job position as mine).

I have so much to write, actually. But as usual, currently I am all blank.

What's new?

I am still not pregnant. (Rolls eyes)
You see, I have this weird obsession that I just have to give birth at the end of the year. I don't want my child to be born from January to June.

I don't want them to be old in their classes. That's why I just need to get pregnant now and be safe from having due dates in the early year!

How does it feel like to give birth? I imagine it like having to shit out really hard and big stool. Man, that's painful. I'd rather have diarrhoea than passing out hard shit. But whenever I'm having those painful episodes in the toilet, I treat it as a practise for my future giving birth experience. Talk about the ultimate optimism...

Okay, I'll stop being disgusting.

Mother...Mother is into iPad now ever since my brother introduced it to her. Come on, she is a grandMother and her oldest grandchild is a tween now. She said she could read the Quran with it and it can zoom in and out with just a touch awayyy..."So convenient," she said.

Mother: Belilah satu...Bukan mahal sangat pun...Seribu lebih je...

Sure, if it is not THAT expensive, why don't you buy me one, Mother...?

Haha, she sounded like me when I was younger, asking for a new gadget!

Like always, I ask, why can't I be richer!

I am grateful with what I have but I wonder how can other people afford things I could not afford when they earn as much, or probably, less than me! Don't they have bills to pay? Or savings for rainy days?

Anyway, I am using up my free time to hang out with my favourite people.

Met a friend and asked him who's his latest scandal.

He said he went clubbing with a girl and her friends, one of them is a doctor. The doctor was so drunk, that when it's time to leave, he got aggressive and refused the others from touching his carkeys. My friend and the two girls got pretty scared to ride with him, so, they simply took a cab and left him.

I was like, "What the hell! What kind of friends are you! How could you just leave him there! It's so dangerous!"

And the funny part is, the doctor could not recall a single thing. The next day, he asked, "What happened last night?" and they lied to him, "Oh, we don't know. You just left without telling us, so, we ended up taking the cab home..."

The doctor completely fell for that! And he said, "I am surprised that I got home safely, even though there are a lot of scratches on my cars..."

It made me so angry because

1) You are a doctor, you should know NOT to exceed your limit when it comes to alcohol. Especially when you are driving, you idiot!

2) My friend's mother got killed by a drunk driver and my colleague got killed because everyone was drunk in the car.

3) How could you leave your drunk friend like that! He could have been mugged and beaten up and abducted and his organs could have been sold!

Stop drinking, will ya! You are too old for that...
