Fuel Reduced & Bonus

Fuel is reduced to 10 sen more by today. It will be sold at RM2.45 per litre. I hope it will reduce further soon. Well, I guess, I can only hope!

And to all Sabah Civil Servants, they must be smiling extra wide this weekend. Half month bonus will be given to them. The other half will be paid in December. Well, as you all know, I've received mine earlier but it's okay, hubby is getting his, so boleh minta belanja lah ni :)


My Simple Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday :) No grand celebration and no cakes for me. Sudah tua ni tidak payah celebrate besar-besaran LoL. Family dinner saja lah :)

After attending evening mass, we went out to celebrate. A simple dinner. We ordered these:

Salad chicken


Nestum prawns

Ham-choi Fish Head

and of course, this..



I do always receive wedding invitations but this one is special ;) It because the groom I think is related to Philip and the bride could be the sister of Vivien. The thing is, both Philip and Vivien are my blog buddies. Small world isn't it? So now, Philip and Vivien, I think both of you are now officially related in marriage :)

Anyways, congratulations to Oliver and Anne Marie on your wedding day. Their reception will be held at KDCA, Penampang today at 6.30pm. And you know what, my hubby and his band called 'The Salapa' will entertain the newly wedded couples and all the guests tonight.


Never Ever Lie to a Woman

A man called home to his wife and said, 'Darling, I have been asked to go fishing up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends. We'll be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I've been wanting, so could you please pack enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and fishing box, we're leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick my things up'

'Oh! Please pack my new blue silk pyjamas'

The wife thinks this sounds a bit fishy but being the good wife she is, did exactly what her husband asked.

The following weekend he came home a little tired but otherwise looking good. The wife welcomed him home and asked if he caught many fish?

He said, 'Yes! Lots of salmons, some bluegills and a few swordfishes. But why didn't you pack my new blue silk pyjamas like I asked you to do?'

The wife replied, 'I did, dear. They're in your fishing box!'

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Merdeka's Celebration at our Church

To all my faithful readers, I am so sorry as I couldn't update my blog for the past few days. My modem and also the CPU were totally damaged due to a great thunderstorms in my area. In fact, not only mine but my neighbours also encountered the same problem.

It seemed that, my computer also wanted to have a Merdeka holiday!

Back to the title above. Last Sunday, we had a Merdeka Mass. It was a very nice homily given by Mgr. Primus Jouil and it was all about Independent Day! Towards the end of the Mass, we proceeded to the outside of the church and had a raising the flag ceremony and sang 'Negaraku'. Then, with full patriotic spirit, Mgr. Jouil shouted 'Merdeka!' three times to which we shouted back the same. It was a very memorable Merdeka celebration for me ;)

Singing 'Negaraku' led by Mgr. Primus Jouil

The Choir

The flag a.k.a. Jalur Gemilang

Final blessing from Mgr. Primus Jouil

After the blessing, it was the time to greet 'Merdeka' to one another
