(The) Not Extraordinary Story

ENGAGEMENT

On this date last month, I got engaged to my 3 years and a half long distance boyfriend.

Yes, you read it right. Long distance boyfriend 🙂 But, I’m not going to tell you about

  • How I met my long distance love.
  • or How to survive a long distance relationship.

I’d like to talk about has anyone’s relationship changed after getting engaged?

I know that mine had. I wouldn’t say that mine have much. But, maybe in some ways things are more like reality and an adult-like 🙂

We are just growing up and getting used to the idea of taking care of each other for the rest of our lives.

We are very much in love and things are still amazing, it just seems more real, I guess because now it is official that we are going to be married soon! 🙂

And I am also a lot more relaxed with him now that we are official although I am stressing out about future planning!

It’s just a lot more exciting to know that you will have a partner for the rest of your life and you wont be alone!

Sick in love! 🙂

GOODBYE MRS. JB

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.

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 :)

THE GIFTS THAT MADE MY DAY

Which one I like?

My boyfriend knows I love Pistachio.

He sometimes called me Pistachio :)

The black tea now become my favorite tea.

I asked my boyfriend to send one box for my birthday and here it is.

Those two books are books for learning Turkish.

They are good book but quite tough, I think so.

The long sleeve shirt bought in LC Waikiki, the boutique where my boyfriend love to buy.

The birthday card is the “love” one. It’s simple but unique.

I love everything that he sent to me.

Thank you so much my most generous and romantic boyfriend.
