The state I am in

Sharul didn't go to work yesterday too: his car broke down. I had offered to lend him my car but he had to send me to school first, which he refused coz he had to be at his work station by 7am. The next thing I knew, I was down with asthma and cough that I stayed home yesterday instead. Sharul could've used my Kia to work if I had it coming.. Anyway, I had another sick leave today. Apparently, it was my blood pressure that forced me to stay in bed.

It read: 140/106. I didn't know what to say. 1. Because I can never tell how bad it is with those numbers. 2. I was surprised. Simply because I didn't feel nausea or any headache like I used to have when my blood pressure was bad some time last year.. Besides, when I had it checked last month, it was normal. But now...

I've gotta get on track. And it better stop raining now or I can never get to work my butt out. I miss hiking. I miss brisk walking. But with this wet weather, it doesn't really help much, does it!

I miss the sun. For now, I should start fasting again. At least, the rain will be a great favour with an empty stomach.. That will be by next week coz I am on medication now. I've gotta finish up my anti biotic, ventolin and flu pills within 5 days. These pills are really strong for me: I slept the whole day today. Let's hope I won't be sleepy in class tomorrow..

Another drama lesson in the afternoon tomorrow. Last week's was a blast! Those kids really got talent. It started off with a request to go out of the class and do some chasing games in the school compound. A character was out chasing the rest: whoever she touched on would transform into animals that they desired and would start chasing those who had not become part of the monstrous family. While chasing, they would behave as animals they thought they were: with hand gestures and sounds. A fun game indeed :)

Back in the classroom, I gave the students an assignment: "Bear With Me" I called it. They were given 30 minutes to create a scenario carrying a comedy genre. Divided into two groups, one group was doing a scene in a clinic, another of a recording advert. Both teams were brilliant. I couldn't stop laughing LoL!

I wish that the school would agree to my proposal: the End of Year Concert. It would be lovely having the kids perform on stage. With the talents that they have, I am sure the audience will love them! :)

Hmmm .. I think I shall stop here. Erghh! Now it's time to take the pills... My head is spinning already due to oversleeping the whole day today. Oh God. Have mercy on me. Give me strength to overcome this sickness I am having..

I miss my Sharul :((

PS: Sharul took me out the whole day yesterday. I could tell he was worried about my condition. He took me to the movie, "Frozen", which ended up me upset. It didn't help much when I had to watch some wolves eating up the characters in the movie errghh!! Then we had our dinner after I bought us tickets to tomorrow's "Eclipse". We're lucky getting great seats! Then he sent me home, with Fluffy in my arms. It was a lovely day. And I miss them both dearly now :((

PPS: Happy birthday to my brother, Saiful Rizal a.k.a. Abo. I pray that happiness shall stay with him and wife forever. Can't wait to see our little niece/nephew :'D

The unfavoured..

It's 8 past and I am in bed when I am supposed to be at work. I woke up with not just the flu (which has since stuck with me almost a week now) but also a bad cough and the worst, asthma. I thought, I should stay in bed today. My body is weak and the moment I open my mouth, the intense it gets for me to cough. So unfavourable!

I am tired. The weather is bad this time too. Yesterday also drained my energy out. We had to facilitate a professional development right up til after 5pm. I was out of breath by then. Sharul took me to the massage. I felt better a bit then off to bed. The next 8 hours, I found my self asthmatic. So I thought, I need rest. My body is controlling my mind now. I'm unfit and as much as I need to be with my students, my body needs to attach to my warm blanket. I feel like an old lady!

I hate feeling inferior this way but I know there's not much I can do. Sunday was a long day but alhamdulillah, dear sister, Nurul, and Ede are now officially and happily engaged. We all stayed up late the night before the day to do touch ups and such. Embarrasing when there aren't enough chairs for all the guests. Thankfully, our immediate kins care enough to provide theirs for Ede's side. So at night, Nurul treated our uncles, aunts and kids at Soto Tinis Restaurant at Jalan Bedil. Everyone was grateful. My sayang stuck around too. I felt amazingly complete now that he's part of us by being there the whole day :')

If only my body is unweak, I would still feel the same as the recent Sunday. The condition I am in could also be the impact of yesterday's shocking experience at work: a female student being possessed by this so called kid spirit named Mimi. I wasn't afraid when she was screaming and shouting uncontrollably over the recitation of the Quranic verses. It was that very afternoon that I started feeling weary. I guess the psychological impact had occured to me slowly.

I am off to the clinic soon. I wonder if my lil brother, Azri, has gotten ready or not. The World Cup fever is not much favourable lately. You know what I mean. It's kind of disappointing having kids, especially boys, with red eyes and passive in class when I was there standing at the front, struggling to get my voice out to teach with the flu that I am having.

So unfavourable..

The reasons behind the silence

Hi all. The two weeks holidays have just ended. Schools are reopen *bummer* and I am struggling at going to bed and waking up early now. The past three days were difficult. Colleagues commented that I looked weary even in smiles or laughs. It must have been obvious! Having PMS also didn't help much. Hope to get my energy back soon, coz tomorrow is CCA. I've to be on-the-move coz I am supervising Drama lessons for the kids. I've to act and be at their level: being a kid. And energy is all I need to be one.

I wanted to blog during the holidays but things got so hectic that I found my self going here and there, doing this and that. The next thing I knew, I was preparing lessons for this week. No wonder friends were complaining about their wedding preparations. Now I get what they meant. It was hard work. But it's not bad so far. I think I managed ;) Last week alone, I drove to Miri 3 times looking for stuff for the wedding. Good thing was, Sharul could save some cash for the wedding at his side. Good for him! I spent more for mine but never mind. What's important is, they're all done! Yeayyy! :D

Since the engagement, I had planned everything. I don't want to burden my parents. I want to do it all my self unless when advice is needed. Being away most of the time due to overtime at work, Sharul can't help much with everything. I understand. But now, I've covered most of the important stuff for the wedding. On counting, we have 6 months for the big day. Now we can relax a bit I guess :)

I got stories to share and pictures to show but with the condition I am in now (this sore throat that seems to stay with this hot-cold-hot weather), I guess that can wait.

And tell you what. I told mom where we're gonna have our honeymoon, she said, "ikuuut!!" LoL! Hmm.. I guess I am still her baby girl ;)

The next on the feline line : )

Introducing our new cat Garnette, borned on 25th February 2010. We took her home last 28th May 2010.

We thought Garnette was a male (the ex owner thought so too) but as we reached home, we found that it's a SHE so Garnette now is Geisha but it seems that we all prefer calling her Garnette though it's a name for a a male cat :P

So Garnette is Geisha, and Geisha is Garnette : ) Enjoy the pictures! :D
She's taking after her father's looks and features
We love her big eyes!
Tired after running here and there chasing after her senior cat family :D
Garnette@Geisha sleeping on her cert. Ain't she adorable! :D

PS: The day we took her home, Sharul's dad was opening the door. He fell in love with her right away, shutting Sharul's mom up from making any comments hehe --> She actually had warned Sharul NOT to add anymore member to the cat family. Now, FORTUNATELY, she's well accepted and loved. She's even sleeping in Sharul's parents' room at night! Heee :D
