Hubby's Birthday

i bought this interesting looking cake from Meidi-ya. the girl at the counter told me it's 'sangat sedap'. welll.... i didnt quite believe her but i didnt have much choice. wanted to surprise my hubby with a cake at the stroke of midnight and didnt have time to get another cake. Believe me, it looks better than it tastes (but then again, it could be my photography skill, i must say i have an eye for angles and lighting HAHA)
anyway, we had fun just plain eating it.

"Happy Birthday Hubby!"

i recently had a nightmarish experience that shook my world of security. How often we take the everyday comforts for granted.

it all started with a phone call at 6am on a monday morning. of course i rushed to pick up the call, thinking it must be an emergency. no one answered, i think the line was cut. several seconds later, i got a disturbing sms.. call it sexual harassement. immediately my heart froze. it was unnerving and it struck fear in me. however, my hubby told me to ignore it, probrably a prank call.

so i woke up later and got ready for work. while driving, i started getting more calls from the same harasser. he kept calling up to 5 times, showing his impatience and since i didnt pick up, he sent even more threathening sms'es. I immediately called my hubby to stay home and wait for me.

from there, we went straight to make a police report and cancelled my number.

it was a terrible day and that incident filled me with paranoia. i am now more aware of my surroundings and can't help but keep checking if anyone is following or looking at me suspiciously.

my whole world of comfort and security just crashed. And all it took was a phone call.

Its been 2 days now and i'm calmer. This incident has taught me several things:
1. I will not live in fear of this harrasser. I will not let him scare me into being a victim of his sick fantasies.
2. I will trust and have faith that God's blood will cover and keep me protected.
3. Not to take things for granted. You can never be too careful. Look around before entering your car, don't go to lonely corridors / toilets alone, carry a self-defense item (pepper spray) while walking alone.

To the rescue!

How often do you get to witness firemen rescuing a stranded cat here in Malaysia?? haha, we had such fun when one lazy Sunday afternoon, we heard loud clinking and clanking behind our condo.
Lo and behold! Our upstairs neighbours' cat was stuck (how come the silly thing can't jump down?)

everyone staring at the silly creature
firemen contemplating who would get the honour of rescuing the cat
aha! the chosen one ascends!

and descends with the rescued creature

the "handover". see how highly strung the cat is. shouldnt they be relaxed since they have like 9 lives?

the great big fire engine rolling away after a hard day's work. at the expense of tax payer's money

hmmph, and goodbye neighbour and silly cat. I think the owner should have just used a stick to nudge the creature to the edge and force it to jump down.

Clear Blue Skies

Just a beautiful picture I saw and couldnt resist posting it.
Its nice to just sit back and be reminded that the skies are cleared and calm again after thunderstorms of the day.
