Masa kat rumah last week, budak kecik ni slept over. malam2 before tido main2 dgn dia. Dah bersuara sikit2 dah sekarang ni. Suka gelak2. One thing pasal baby Hadief, dia xtakut org, xsuka nangis xpasal2. Klau nangis tu mesti bersebab,macam lapar ke,ngantuk ke.

My name is Julia. And I’m not a terrorist.

“My name is Rizvan Khan. I might seem a little different to you. That is because I have Aspergers Syndrome. It is named after Dr Hans Aspersers who first noticed the traits in children. Having Aspergers does not mean I am stupid. I am very intelligent, but I don't understand people. I don't know why people say things they don't mean. For example, they say come to my house any time, and when I go to their house they say why have you come at this time? Sometimes people think I am rude. I don't mean to be rude, being rude is not good. My mother said there are only good people and bad people in the world and I am a good person...”

 My Name is Khan is a must see movie. Fullstop.

main_image-51571

Since i missed “3 Idiots” during the show in cinema, i wanted to make sure i won’t miss My Name is Khan starring my favourite Shahrukh Khan and the lovely Kajol, directed by Karan Johar. Shahrukh and Kajol – what a better combination could it be right? Even better with the touch of Karan. I like them as movie partne r since the Baazigar, Karan Arjun, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and up until the memorable 2001 Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham. 9 years of waiting for another pairing in a good movie. The Karan-Shah Rukh-Kajol combo strikes once more!

I went to watch My Name is Khan yesterday. And I regret that i didn’t watch it sooner. Damn it was a great movie. But of course, there are still a few gap here and there. And for some of you, may be you won’t really like this movie because of the religion issue. Mind you one thing, you won’t see any dancing scene choreographed in this music. No romantic item like Suraj Hua Madham.. or enjoyable songs and dance like Koi Mil Gaya. A bit frustrating for me tho. :P

Short synopsis:

Rizvan Khan, a Muslim man from India, moves to San Francisco and lives with his brother and sister-in-law. Rizvan, who has Aspergers Syndrome, falls in love with Mandira. Despite protests from his family they get married and start a small business together. They are happy until September 11, 2001 when attitudes towards Muslims undergo a sea-change. When tragedy strikes, Mandira is devastated and they split. Rizvan is confused and very upset that the love of his life has left him. To win her back, he embarks on a touching and inspiring journey across America.

Attention please!

Rumah Titian Kasih, Titiwangsa

If u ever came across my entry about PBSM Malaysia located in Jalan Nipah, off Jalan Ampang, KL, you’ll remember about the unused item (mostly clothes) yang kami sekeluarga hantar as a donation so that they can sell and use the money for their PBSM activity.

So few months back, i did a closet clearance and have some clothes that I don’t use anymore and wanted to send it off to PBSM. Then call cousins & aunts tanya kalau2 ada jugak barang nak hantar sana, boleh kumpul2 hantar sekali. tetiba bila dah kumpul macam banyak pulak. then mum said, this time x payah hantar kat PBSM la. she read about an orphanage home, Rumah Titian Kasih (RTK), near Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. So she gave me the address and I went there with my aunt & cousin. Masa tu, pergi, hantar clothes and some dry foods, then balik. Nothing much.

SDC10122

Lebih kurang seminggu yang lepas, sepupu ada buat kenduri tahlil hari ke 40 untuk pakcik kat rumah atuk (the same house i live in). Masa kenduri tu, kami ada buat bungkusan2 makanan2 kering (kueh mueh, buah, jelly etc) untuk bagi pada tetamu2. So, sepupu tu buat la lebih sebab nak sedekah kat rumah anak yatim sikit. Ikutkan rumah yang kitorang pergi tu, ada la dalam 50 orang mcm tu kot (anggaran je).

So esok tu, kitorang pun pergi la ke Rumah Titian Kasih tu, bawak bungkusan2 tu dan ada baju2 dari ahli keluarga yang x digunakan lagi.

Sampai-sampai kami carik Mak Pah, pengurus rumah tu. Mak Pah kata x ramai orang hari tu sebab ada orang bawak diorang pergi kenduri kahwin. Ok, x kisah lah tu.

Mak Pah tanya kami pernah pergi tak rumah lagi satu, rumah yang menempatkan anak2 perempuan. Ohhh.. rupanya baru kami tahu rumah yang ni ialah rumah lelaki, tapi sebab pejabat kat sini so Mak Pah selalu kat sini. Rumah lagi satu rumah perempuan. Mak Pah kata kat rumah perempuan ada orang OKU dan warga emas jugak. Mak Pah ajak kami pergi rumah tu. Ok gak. sebab x pernah pergi tengok pun.

SDC10117

Sementara tunggu Mak Pah and pergi rumah perempuan, kami beli la sikit2 makanan2 yang dijual, hasil tangan ibu2 tunggal di sini, sebagai salah satu punca pendapatan. Ada kerepek, kuih dan acar buah.
Sampai kat rumah perempuan, tengok x ramai orang. Mak Pah kata ada yang pergi kem motivasi, ada yang pergi kenduri kahwin.

Masuk dalam rumah tu, ternampak ada seorang kanak-kanak perempuan ni. nampak macam umur 2-3 tahun. Duduk sorang2 je. Mak Pah bagi satu bungkusan yang kamu bawak tu. dia masuk bilik, duduk sorang2 je terkial-kial nak bukak bungksan tu. Bila nampak die macam susah nak bukak tu, kitorang datang kat dia nak tolong dia..

DSC05817nama panggilan dia kak cik. ayah kak cik baru je meninggal. ibu kak cik xtau la pulak mane.

DSC05819see that’s my niece, Nurin in yellow shirt. she’s 4+ years old. kak cik is much smaller than Nurin,kan. But she’s actually 5. Mak Pah kata dia sangat x cukup makan, x cukup zat before masuk RTK ni. Kak Cik ada 2 org abang yang sama2 tinggal di sini.

Then, there’s a girl named Nana. 24 years old. I can’t remember ape nama penyakit dia Mak Pah ada bagitau. But she talks reaaalllyy slow. bukan gagap. she kept on asking “mana ibu nana…?” “kenapa ibu x datang..?” she called cousin Kak Lina, aunt and my mum “Ibu…Ibu….”.. and she kept on repeating “Mak Pah baik… jaga kami….mak Pah baik sangat….”  Mak Pah cakap diorang pun x tau kat mana ibu Nana sebenarnya..

This is Haziq and his sister Farah. both parents are alive. but sadly dua-dua bermasalah, and pity this beautiful kids, kat sini tempat mereka akan membesar.. i wonder where are the other family member..grandparents? aunties? uncles? :(

bercerita pasal pergi Rumah Titian Kasih ni bukan dengan tujuan nak berlagak. kami pun bukan orang senang sangat pun. tapi kami teringin nak tolong setakat mana yang mampu. InsyaAllah, Allah tahu niat kami ikhlas.
and i hope and pray, kalau la ada yang lebih mampu, bantu-bantu lah mereka ni jugak. RTK bukan di bawah biayaan Jabatan Kerajaan Masyarakat ataupun Baitimal. They stand on their own feet. and they need help.

Sambungan cerita Kota Singa

07.02.2010

Lets continue with the 2nd day of my Singapore trip story.

Woke up early morning, had breakfast and we were out heading to the Sentosa Island. Since it’s just a short trip, we didn’t plan to spend the whole day there. Just make a quick stop to bring the kids there.

Took the MRT from the Farrer Park station heading to Harbour Front station, where VivoCity is located. Mum suggested that we take the cable car but the cable car was closed for maintenance or something so we took the Sentosa Express. Sentosa Express monorail station is integrated in the Vivocity Mall.

We stopped at the Beach Station. Headed to a shop to buy some souvenirs, then went to the beach for photo session. Pity the children they were literally dying to swim. haha. sorry yer.. lain kali je ;p

17174_279755093043_575488043_3323471_6950070_n

Then there were these Skyride and Luge that look totally awesome and think we should try. I didn’t want to take the Luge at first. Since nephew, Hilman wasn’t feeling well, i thought of taking him to take the Skyride on return trip. But when cousin Effa was buying the tix for Skyride+Luge for herself and nephew, Amir, the kakak at the counter told her that the price for 2 person (Skyride+Luge) was SG$22 but it cost SG$ 28 for 4 person! Dang! so there were me & mom decided that we’re gonna try the Luge as well. heeee!

17174_279761908043_575488043_3323489_5902217_n 17174_279764888043_575488043_3323493_7420834_n This ride was awesoommmmeeee!!! Boley drift wooooo! haha

After then, we took the Sentosa Express back, and took off at the Imbiah Sation for see another huge Merlion.

17174_279769998043_575488043_3323509_4093332_n

The huge merlion is actually one of the tourist attraction at Sentosa Island. It’s the Imbiah Lookout where you can see the whole Sentosa, and Singapore southern shores from up above. See the open mouth of the merlion? Yes. you can actually be up there.

After more and more camwhoring session at Sentosa Island, we were back at the VivoCity and everyone was already starving for lunch. Had at lunch at the food court. Hey,wait! see the fake beach on top of the mall!! It’s on the 3rd level of VivoCity. But swimming is not allowed. Untuk lepak2 sahaja, ok.

17174_279770753043_575488043_3323522_6035524_n Level 3, Vivocity

Next? Bugis street. Bugis Street is similar to our Petaling Street in KL. You can find a lot of stuffs here. But it was very crowded that we only spend a little time here.

17174_279773903043_575488043_3323538_3084865_n Bugis Street

Across the street of the Bugis street is the Bugis Juction. Old old buildings, renovated, air-conditioned. Nice place I can say.

17174_279783548043_575488043_3323565_2287686_n

After then, we went to Bedok to see some family member. But we only had the chance to go to one house, Uncle Othman’s. ok2. next time (er..ada ke next time? ;p ) we should see more family members there, ok!

17174_279785128043_575488043_3323569_4976770_n

From Bedok, nephew Amir requested that we take the double decker. He wanted to take a ride on the double decker since he saw one on our arrival in Singapore. So we decided to take the double decker to go back. But since there were no straigt double decker bus to our hotel, we went to Orchard Rd to change bus/MRT. (alasan jer switch bus tu sebenarnya… well.. it’s Orchard Rd bebehh! haha)

17174_279787803043_575488043_3323581_5778324_n

So, Orchard Road again!! Had dinner at Wisma Atria before going back to Little India by MRT.

17174_279787838043_575488043_3323585_4956211_n 17174_279791193043_575488043_3323610_5703204_n

Ok. Enough. Penat. Back to the hotel. Tidur. Esok balik.

So the next morning, woke up, breakfast and spent the last few hours in Singapore at the City Square Mall. Why la mesti ada Charles & Keith boutique in the City Square Mall, that just across the hotel…? –_-“ Dah. Jom balik.

17174_279796833043_575488043_3323624_386470_n I wish that the old buildings at Lebuh Ampang & Masjid Jamek area will be nicely renovated and painted like this17174_279796848043_575488043_3323625_853910_nKTM Tanjong Pagar Station

So this is the end of the trip. I seriously wish to come again. There’s just a lot more places to be visited in Singapore.

*ehem*ehem*

Ma..thank you for the trip! ada rezeki boleh belanje g Singapore lagi. ;p

Jalan jalan bersama keluarga ke Kota Singa

04.02.2010

Last weekend I went to Singapore for a holiday with my family – mum, auntie, cousins and nephews. A short, simple holiday but is enough to help me take my mind off of things.

Went there by KTM train, departure from KL Sentral station on the 29th January, 2230 hrs and arrived at Tanjong Pagar station the next morning at 0800hrs, after a short stop at Woodlands train check point around 0700 hrs.

Had breakfast at Tanjong Pagar station. Then walked to the nearest MRT which is Tanjong Pagar, to go to our hotel in Little India.

17174_279697928043_575488043_3323278_1691514_n

[Tips] We bought the EZLink card (similar to our TnG card) and would likely to suggest you to buy the card if u’re going there for a hols. Your trip there would be much easier, no need to queue for tickets. EZlink can be used for MRT, buses etc. It’s sold at SG$ 15, with SG$ 10 amount in it. It means that you pay SG$ 5 for the card. BUT. each trip by MRT or bus, u’ll get discount. so it’ll cover your SG$5 back. Plus, it lasts for 5 years when it’s not used. And the balance amount in the card is refundable. But the card itself isn’t. So you can refund the balance at the end of your trip, and keep the card for next trip :p

The hotel was located in Little India but the nearest station was the Farrer Park. Since it was still early for check-in, we went to the City Square Mall, which was linked to the Farrer Park MRT station. The mall is a newly opened mall with ‘go green’ theme and just across our hotel.

Our first destination on the trip was to Orchard Road. OMG!! This place is a serious shopping heaven. Kalau rasa2 nak habiskan duit sekelip mata, sila lah ke sini. There are too many shopping complexes here e.g Lucky Plaza, Wisma Atria, ION Mall. 

17174_279689933043_575488043_3323267_7045255_n17174_279704753043_575488043_3323292_1760935_n17174_279697938043_575488043_3323279_3326056_n Yes, Chinese New Year is nearing and sale are everywhere!17174_279697948043_575488043_3323281_278889_n 17174_279726953043_575488043_3323386_680652_nYeah. Whatever. As long as I’m happy :P

After the ‘cuci mata’ session at the Orchard Road, we went to the Merlion Park to see the must-see and must-snap-photo-with Merlion. Taking the MRT to the next destination sangat mencabar jugak. There are boutiques and shop lots everywhere through the link at the underpass. *sigh*

The floating stadium is located on the water. yes it is floating. but as far as i can see, and through the pictures on the internet, i can’t see any high fences surrounding the museum. So what happened if the balls were kicked so high and went outside the field? O_o

It was late evening so we decided to go back to the hotel, and just spend the night in the hotel area - the Little India area, City Square Mall, Seragoon Plaza etc. We walked to the Victoria Memorial to wait for the bus.

But the decision to take the bus was a big mistake. We forgot that the hotel was in Little India, and it was the night of the Thaipusam. We were stuck on the traffic jam as some road were closed for the well-carrying marching for the Thaipusam. –_-“  we should’ve take the MRT instead..

So we had some rest, we went out to have dinner at the City Square Mall and to Seragoon Plaza.

 [Tips] Print out the Singapore MRT map (click here for map) and bring it everywhere. Helpful. Very very helpful.
