(The) Not Extraordinary Story



One guy in Turkey, one girl in Malaysia. They knew each other on Interpals site on 2009.

They became friend and talked everyday on net.

Until one day, they realized they love each other more than a friend.


The guy planned to visit the girl for the first time in his life after 3 years in a long distance love.

He bought a flight ticket and came to Malaysia for the girl.

The first meeting was the bitter-sweet moment for the guy.

The girl arrived late at the airport and made the guy waited for her about 2 hours.

The guy was upset and mad with the girl.

When the guy saw the girl for the first time, his mood turned to be happy.

And for the first time in their life, they can touched each other.

They hug each other and everyone in the arrival level watched them.

But they didn’t care as they felt like the time paused.

It was just like a movie.


One morning, the guy taught the girl how to swim in the beach.

They swam to the little deep.

Suddenly, he stepped on baby stingray’s barb which was buried in the sand.

He knew he couldn’t let the girl drown in the water.

He hold the girl even he felt so much pain.

It was the bitter moment but the sweet memory for them.


They cried before they leaved each other.

The guy back to Turkey. The girl was so sad. She cried all night long.

Goodbye was the hardest word for them.


The girl went to Turkey to meet the guy after their first meeting in Malaysia.

It was a long journey, more than 15 hours from Malaysia to Adana.

But the hours was not a big matter.


The guy took the girl to his workplace and introduced her to his boss and staffs.

The next day, he made another surprise. He brought the girl back to his hometown to meet his parent.

The girl felt like a princess.

That was the “serious thing” he did for her.


The girl said ” Seni seviyorum” to they guy.

The guy replied ” Ben seni seviyorum”


No real relationship without fighting and sulking.


The guy wished the pillow was her.

The girl missed him so much so she hug Winnie the Pooh the guy gave to her.


They made a plan to be together.

But, the plan is not easy like they thought.

They have to face many obstacles just to be together in real world.

But, they will survive for the sake of love.

3 days ago, I joined a farewell dinner with other colleagues in Grand Riverview Hotel.

It was a farewell dinner for our Deputy Registrar.

She gave a half an hour speech. It was a brief and “full of moments” message from her.


The invitation card


After finished our Malay dinner.


29 years for USM

She said ” It’s not easy for me to leave this job but I had to do it for my beloved husband. I worked for 29 years and now it’s a perfect time for me to leave. Some of my staffs asked me to wait for a few months to get retired so I can get new salary, but I can’t wait. I don’t mind about it. My current salary is extra enough for me. My husband needs me more than anyone else. My job needed me to work 24 hours. I had to leave my husband many times in 29 years because of my duty.  I thank to him for his understanding and sacrifice. Thank you so much”.

She was the person who interviewed me for the position I have now.  I got two interviews with her.

One for Librarian position and another was Administration Officer.

I remember she asked me about my brooch I wore with my Kebaya dress.

She said “I noticed you like to wear brown dress and animal brooch. Do u like the animal brooch instead of flower brooch?”.

That was a trick question to trap me :D Luckily I got the job :)

Thank you Mrs. JB for chose me among other candidates.

May Allah bless you and your family. And thank you for your 29 years excellent service with us :)

Since a few days ago, I was craving for Iskander doner.

But I know I couldn’t find it here 😦

So, I decided to prepare a homemade Twister for my break-fasting meal.

I found the frozen potato wraps, some slices of chicken bologna and chicken nuggets in my fridge.

I chopped some cabbages and baby tomatoes.

Deep fried a slice chicken bologna and 3 pieces of chicken nuggets (cut into  small pieces).

Heat the wraps in the microwave and put the vegetables on it, add some pepper, thousand islands and chili sauce, a slice of deep-fried chicken bologna and tiny deep-fried chicken nuggets.

Then, I rolled up the wraps as tightly as I can. It was so tasty like KFC Twister.

Homemade twister

Next time, I no need to drive-thru for KFC Twister. I can made it by myself.
