Banjir oh banjir..

My hometown Pulai Chondong dan lebih specific lagi my mom's house kebanjiran hari ni. As early as 7.30am, my mom called heboh2 pasal rumah masuk air.. waahhh.. how i wish i am in kelantan now and can enjoy the musim boh ni.

The last time i experienced this musim boh was right after my final paper, final semester uni time, 2000. I took the first flight to kb that day just to ensure that i didn't missed the banjir and someone needed to help my mom to rescue the house. My house - my living room tenggelam up to knee length. Hah!.. best main air!

Today wasn't so bad, air masuk kat dapor je, and our living room pulak about two inch away je lagi utk tenggelam.. hehehe..

Bandung oh bandung.. part 1

I am dreaming of my bandung trip terribly lately.. hehehe..everyday and nights, whenever free.. i'll be surfing the net and get as much info as i can..in order to ensure our trip (family & friends) will be as smooth as expected.

I have made reservation for accommodation already. At first was thinking to stay in Galeria Ciumbulueit but then after reading bout it, that place is quite far from the Riau-Dago shopping streets.. and not easily accessible - need transport all the time to go in/out.. So not really a good choice.

Then, after reading and talking to Pak Agus (was introduced by my big brother), Grand Serela is a 3 star hotel and located within walking distance to FO. Thank goodness. But the rate is slightly higher but after i did some calculation to prev hotel + transport and this hotel.. it's the same amount though.. so let's stay in Grand Serela.

My thinking is.. my buddies - loub, ed and hanim will surely find their way in/out FO at any time they like.. and me? - maybe stranded with the 2 angels and in/out of this hotel numerous times a day.. hahahaha..

Some info quoted from my reading...

Bandung is Dago and Dago is Bandung
Once you are in Dago, it is easy to go anywhere. Grand Serela at Jalan Riau just around factory outlets such as the Heritage would be my first choice... , Grand Setiabudi less convenient for its location except it is near the famous Rumah Mode factory outlet

And please read the lengthy review at this page:

Below are some of the worth mention factory outlets in Bandung.
1. Rumah Mode ( the best in Bandung and a must visit) - Jln Setiabudi
2. Terminal Tas ( lots of branded ladies handbag)
3. Summit
4. Heritage
5. Merdeka Outlet
6. Level FO
7. Victoria FO
8. Mode Plus and Donatello – Jln Setiabudi
9. Secret Factory Outlet- the latest FO at Jalan Riau

And for Pak Agus services, this guy can provide hotel reservation (with some mark up to Indonesian rate!) and also transportation to anywhere u like.. and the charges he gave me was like a day rate (24 hrs available) for 7 person transportation = IDR600,000. This is pretty expensive for me.. I'll try to negotiate again if we agree to hire him on 12 hours basis..

that's all for today..

2009 Resolution Number 3...

Untuk menjadi Anak yang Soleh, Isteri yang Mithali dan Mommy yang paling Best!

hi all,
i woke up late this morning and had my subuh prayer quite late. Since i'm on mc, my 2 angels were inside the duvet with me too.. And after performing my solat, i was on the pray mat and thinking that i shouldn't do this again in the future.. Am already in my 30's and i need to be a better person. So, i pledge that i'll be a better person! I Promise.

And after sending the angels to school and while having my small breakfast (on diet lor..) on my own, i sneaked out on my emails and doing some internet banking thingy.. i got this one good email from my 40's sister.. he he he..

here is the tazkirah for this morning..


There is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out ALL OF IT, of course!!!

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lostt, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft.

Each day it opens a new account for you.
Each night it burns the remains of the day.
If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours.
There is no going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow."

So live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in good deeds, health, happiness, and success! The clock is running. Make the most of today.
