:2011 ROCKS!!::

Final day to 2012..2011 is gonna leave us soon..Kejap je rasa.. Baru lagi kut rasa pegi lepak kat Kg. Baru tgk bunga api KLCC..Tau2 dah nak abis sethn pun..How's your 2011??..In my case..I'd say..AWESOME!!..I had a rough time on 2009 and a gloomy one on 2010..But Allah is always with me going through the ups and downs..Alhamdulillah..2011 is kinda a fabulous year to me..2011 did bring sweet memories to me..Xde psg apa2 azam pun awalnya but had some plans in my mind earlier..And Alhamdulillah almost semua berjln lancar..Began the year with some properties purchase..The booking starts on the end of 2010 and done in 2011..

Got the dream car of mine on 030311.. Yes it has been only in my dream that I never thought I could actually own it someday or soon..Mazda 3 Sport 1.6 (A) which I've been "usharing" is finally mine..Pak Da his name is..Been admiring the design, the coolness, the bla2...Pak Da came just on the right time with a right offer and a right budget that I could prepare for..And spending time with Pak Da throughout the days couldn't be sweeter...And for Pak Da to come in, I had to let go my precious Kelisa a.k.a Winona..Will redeem you back baby when the time comes..*Winona will always be kept close to my heart*...

June 2011..Officially moved to my own house..Just a 2nd hand 2-bedroom low cost flat but at least, to buy a house is a very big step to take at the young age (young la sgt kannnnnn...;)) ..Been conflicting with myself at the early time trying to decide on which house to buy..Shall I get the landed or non one temporarily and finally..Che' Mah came into my life..That's her name is..Moga2 ada rezeki utk yg landed punya 1 sweet day..Harga rumah yg sgt2 mhl really made me think of at least buying a small house first for living currently and investment in the future..Instead of paying for rental, I in fact pay for my own house..

Got my Pemberian Taraf Berpencen (PTB) status in July 2011..PTB is synonym to a government servant who's been working for 3 years and opted for the pension scheme..And also the indicator for my confirmation of job..Tu semua xde hal la..Yg plg penting..Dpt kuarkan duit KWSP yg dah selamat simpan ASB dah pun haaa..;)..Telah dgn pura2 yakinnya memilih skim pencen sbb ikutkan ckp mak ayah pada hal ikutkan hati prefer KWSP Lagi masyuk kut incomenya..Hohoh..

August 2011..My PHD scholarship was approved and my application was granted.. Alhamdulillah..Has been starting the life as a student again since the past 4 months..Mcm x caya tgh sambung PHD but that's the fact of my current life kut..Pray hard to Allah that I'll be getting the scroll on time..Moga2 tabah menghadapi segala cabaran..Insyaallah..

My 2011 ending is the sweetest.. Rezeki Allah S.W.T..Sgt x tersangka-sangka.. Anugerah Perkhidmatan Cemerlang (APC 2010)..Berkat nangis, tension, stress, tapi keep on doing works as they are.. Alhamdulillah.. Nothing to be proud of actually but to me, it's something that would motivate and relieve those painful thoughts in doing my job.. Have been not so passionate doing but still trying my best to perform it..

Sure there are still some downs instead of ups..Itulah hidup..Byk warna.. Things beyond my control seem yet to be achieved..Jodoh, perkahwinan, bla2..Gone through some almost-to-be-a-relationship but to Allah's will, I believe he knows what's the best for me and I don't mind waiting..Though this year is my last time being 20's, all in all..My 2011 rocks!!!.. Syukur Alhamdulillah for great things happened and I'm so praying for 2012 to be better.. Xde nak psg apa2 azam but my biggest wish is to stay pious, healthy and happy going through the superb life of mine..InsyaAllah..Dan semoga tabah menghadapi fasa umur yg baru..Hahaha..So wishing all of you...

Malaysia is finally has factory outlet of its own!!..Ni bkn mcm FOS ke Reject Shop ke pe bagai hokkay.. This is a whole complex where those designer's brand are under 1 roof and products are sold at relatively cheaper compared to those in malls..That's the actual understanding yeah..Known as Johor Premium Outlet (JPO)..So sah2 la terletak dkt Johor (nampak sgt nak attract Singaporean..Choyy!!).. Actually ada student trip ke Johor and on the way back to KL, we dropped by to "investigate" what JPO is actually all about..;)

"Signature tower"

Masa sampai tu, tgh hujan lebat so cuaca sgt dingin dan mendung.. So my very 1st impression to the JPO complex was like.."Wahhh..Ala2 oversea gak ni"..Yepp the place does remind me of Roermond Designer Outlet in Holland that I went to back in 2009..The shop building's design and concept mmg ala2 oversea tapi xdela sama sejibik kut.. Yet boleh tangkap feeling oversea gak la lagi2 lps hujan sbb sejuk.. Kuikuikui..

"Car drop off area and one of the main entrance"

JPO ni projek Genting Bhd. and FYI, projek Sentosa Island kat Singapore tu pun Genting punya jugak (bapak kaya la keturunan Goh Tong tu)..Seluruh kompleks JPO ni mmg luas dan dibina mengikut level tanah..Secara keseluruhan ade 2 tingkat kompleks bangunan yg dibina ikut terrain..So tingkat 1 n 2 berada pada terrain level yg berbeza jadi nampak smart la design conceptnya..Secara keseluruhan ade lebih kurang 60 outlets dan bakal ditambah menjadi 130 lagi dgr2..

Antara brands outlet yg ada kat situ mcm Coach, Lacoste, CK, Nike Store, Adidas, Fossil, Cotton 0n, Burberry, Guess, Charles & Keith (ni je favorite gua pun), Padini Concept Store, The Bodyshop,DKNY, Levi's, Armani, Clarks, Salvatore Ferragamo, Poney dan byk lagi la..During my trip, there are several outlets which are yet to open mcm Braun Buffel..I'd say the brands in JPO are relatively those which are in common purchase of Malaysian..Not much on the high-end brands like GUCCI ke Prada ke D&G ke..Tapi ok la..Memenuhi selera Malaysia..

Ckp pasal harga..General understanding, this kind of outlet is supposed to provide price of factory level a.k.a cheaper whereby the products might not be the latest of trend but that doesn't really bother customers as long as the price is kinda cheap..So kat JPO ni..Masa pegi smlm, tgh opening SALE..Nak kata murah..Emmm...Rasa2 lebih krg mcm kat KL bila ada YES..Fossil purse and wallet starting price at RM80 during the SALE..Tgk tag harga asal kalau x SALE tu mcm harga kat KL je rasanya..Ratus2..Berkenan satu DKNY watch at price of RM320 and x tunjuk harga asal but the salesperson claims that the watch has been discounted for 50%..Meaning harga asal dlm nearly RM700..So ape beza kat KL?..50% due to the opening SALE and surprisingly the warranty given is only 2 weeks sbb kate salesperson tu dah discount byk..50% off, I shall get 6 month warranty la if by proper Mathematics..

In my own case, ssh nk ckp pasal mhl murah sbb harga brg2 branded kat Malaysia ni dlm lingkungan ratus2 ke ribu (tgk brg la)..So kalau kat outlet, murah ke mhl still figure yg sama..Hahaha..Whereby kalau kat oversea, 3 figures price of a product, you could get at 2 figures price dekat outlet..Baru terasa murah kut..Hahaha..

To summarize on the price range, depends la atas tahap perbelanjaan or keinginan seseorg tu sbb sgt subjektif kut..In my case..I'd just say, to spend on fuel and tolls going to south for the sake of saving few hundreds on a particular item, it's just back to square 1 actually..Tapi agak untung la utk Southern people and of course, Singaporeans..Please be reminded..Avoid to go there on weekends.. Singaporeans are way too many there..Bikin menyampah kuttt..

Pada sape2 yg nak mmbygkan factory outlet kat oversea tu mcm mana..You could go to JPO right after hujan..Mmg lebih kurang sama environmentnya..Hehehe..JPO ni complete ada foodcourt, surau, ATM.. Nak duduk shopping pagi-petang sampai lebam pun xpe..

To those who would like to visit JPO, it is located in the area of Indahpura at the roadside of Senai Interchange.

From KL via KL-JB Plus Highway
Ambil exit Nusajaya/Tuas (exit 253)in the direction to Singapore 2nd link..Then ambil exit to Senai airport (Route E 204). 600m from the exit, you will see the JPO exit signboard.

Her: "Apa perkara kau takutkan dlm hidup ni ye?..
Me : "Hahahaha..Nape tanye aku mcm tu eh?"
Her: "Sbb ko nampak mcm xde apa nak ditakutkan..X takut hantu..Org
ke ape ke.."
Me : "Hahaha..Aku tkt je hantu tp x terlalu pikirkan psl tu..Tu je..
Aku penakut..Byk hal aku takut.."
Her: "Apa?"

That was part of a conversation between me and a good friend.. What am I scared of?..What is my fear?..And surely we are not talking about afraid of Allah, death and a such..That's already an understanding of it..We were talking about matters..She thought I'm not such a person of fear which is contrary to who I actually am..

I'm just a typical person with so many things that I'm afraid of, if only not to the view or thought of other people..I just couldn't know which fear is the biggest..They might be just on par of each other..

Loss is 1 of those.."Yela..Tu semua org takut"..That's what she said..Yes n I'm just 1 of those..No matter how, strong, bold or blunt I look as from people's view, I'm just totally scared of losing.. Especially my beloveds..To ever imagine the loss will already shed tears out of me..Moreover to face it..Patah tumbuh hilang berganti..Ayat senang la direka, ditulis..Mcm mana pun.. Kehilangan tu salah satu dari lumrah..Or maybe also a "fitrah".. Nak x nak..Takut ke tak..Suka ke x suka..Tetap kene hadapi..Faced few loss before..Should be adapted to it but I just know that I still can't bare with it if ever it happens again..

What more to scare of??..In my case..Rejection is another matter.. If ever I look so blunt, strict, strong and feeling-less (that's what claimed by some friends..;P), rejection is a thing that I just don't feel like encountering, whether by purpose or by coincidence.. Rejection ni byk perkara..Tak payah nak pikir bab cintan-cintun je.. My rejection fear could be to some extent, it sounds not logic anymore to actually scared of..Tapi nak buat mcm mana..Humans are just not same of each other..

Future..Juga antara perkara yg ditakuti..Tapi lebih kpd yg dirisaukan..But I once read a book..

"Tiada apa harus dirisaukan tentang masa depan kerana hari esok itu masih berada dlm perkara2 yg ghaib..Nikmati apa yg anda ada hari ini dan bljr dari kesilapan smlm"

Apa or mcm mana sekalipun ketakutan kita..Yg penting kawalan diri.. Rasa mcm takutkan hantu..Don't think much of it krn itu betul2 mainan fikiran.. Sentiasa berwaspada n jg keselamatan diri..That's what I've been doing..Self preservation is part of it.. I don't portray myself of the fear to both matters, loss and rejection.. Seldom for me to show to people of how hurtful I am of the loss and rejection..As I try to avoid both from the beginning.. Trying my best no to lose stuff or to be rejected at first..Loss is sometime out of my control but rejection is not..To not start,be more reserve, to just lay back is how I manage my fear of rejection..It's funny and strange to people, but it works well to me..And that concludes why do I look feeling-less, strong, garang and bla2 to some people.....;)
