GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
Tuesday, September 4, 2012


Hard work pays off, trust me.

Sounds good, eh?

Hehehe.

I was on emergency leave tadi. My not so new tyre on my car has formed some kind of impact bubble. Thanks to abah, sebab dia perasan benda ni. Kalau nak harapkan orang yang jenis tahu drive je ni, memang tak boleh harap la. Hehe. So abah kata tayar kembang. Hahaha. First time dengar ok. Kembang macam mana tu?

Well it looks a little something like this,


Hahaha, tapi ni bukan my tayar ok. Picture googled je ni.

Rasanya my fault lah kot sebab I was probably running over a pot hole.

Jadinya, when I saw the bubble, I knew I was going to have to get a new tyre but I had no idea how expensive it was going to be. So again, thanks to abah. He helped me a lot.

Dah petang-petang sikit, dalam pukul 5.30 pm, I read a good news. Hehehe. My boss texted me and cakap, congratulations! Hehe. And I opened my office e-mail and check sendiri lepas tu. Macam tak percaya pun ada sebab selalu sangat on leave tahun ni.

So, yay, my hard work finally paid off. Thank you, Allah. Special thanks to my parents and colleagues for all the love, hugs, support and prayers.

All those sleepless and stressful nights, plus all the tears that I cried are all worth it. Hehe. Good things really come to those who wait, believe and work hard.

But, this is not the end. It's only the beginning of something even bigger, InshaAllah. It's the beginning of my career, my stepping stone towards how I want my future to be. The hard fact on being single, you get to really create the life that is most meaningful to you. Sob sob. But it will change, one day.

Oh, I'm worried about growing old alone.

Tapi itulah, kita hanya mampu merancang. But, He knows best.

Ok, cukup-cukup cakap pasal benda yang satu ni.

So I need a reward. Hehe. I've decided my treat will be a purse or bag or tote. Anything.


And I have had this image saved to my computer for months, right after I came back from my Europe trip in May.  Saw this bag in La Fayette, Paris. Unik kan. Cute. One of the hottest accessories. It comes in about 10 different colors so there is definitely a color for everyone.

This elusive satchel is actually Furla Candy Satchel. I love the shape, with bold material and a choice of rubber.

Now, I just have to decide which color is right for me. I'm leaning towards the pink version, but I'm drawn to the blue and yellow colour as well. Hehehe.

Ok, ni beg yang jenis lebih kurang sama, tapi langsung tak serupa hahaha. Tapi sangatla bag doraemon sebab semua benda boleh sumbat.

Tunggu gaji baru masuk and I'll buy that Candy. Meroyan dah ni kalau tak dapat. Hahahaha.

Good night :)
