1- These few weeks I choose to stay in library instead of my cubical in Postgrad room. I came to think that I do actually like library better. And the Postgrad room has freezing air-conditioning that my hands get stiff after a few hours =.= (eh.. camana nak main snow nih kalau tak tahan sejuk??). Plus I can stay in library comfortably til late, 10.30pm, while the Postgrad room will start to be empty after 7pm, leaving me alone with unwelcome thoughts of hantu might appear at any time. Just kidding, I dont fear of that, but it’s a little tiny bit uncomfortable of being alone til late night in an empty office room at the 3rd floor with nobody’s around.
2- Dr Umi gave me til end of this month to finalize my program and analyze the outputs, and by November I’ll have to start writing thesis. One month. Hopefully I’ll manage to get it done accordingly.
3- Alot of credit cards usage this month which makes me feel bad that I had to rely on my parents to pay the bills still. From Kelisa maintenance service to changing the exhaust pipe to replacing my broken printer (and even the new printer got breakdown after 2nd usage T_T now waiting for HP to send a replacement). And some unnecessary makeup and beauty stuff I suddenly had to buy for the engagement. Tak jadik cantik sgt pon.. :/
4- My serviced apartment business is going good, Alhamdulillah. Got a number of bookings til December, mostly during weekends. It makes me a busy hotel manager now, getting calls and making calls every now and then.. haiyoh.
5- It’s both sensible and not sensible if I say I’m still not thinking about wedding preparation yet, even though the family have discussed that it will be happening in 4 months. I know normal people would start planning one year ahead before the big day, but to me.. I’m just too busy and lazy to think about wedding. Or maybe it’s still not really my thing. (Can I actually say that?). Tsk..
6- But but but!! I’m already excitedly preparing for our trip to India in April. The trip is way more important than wedding, hahaha.
7- Oooppss.. terlepas cakap pulak :P
YAY. Who could have thought, this new business of mine started way better this time, and I had someone booking for a stay in my apartment even before I finished furnishing ;-) She was searching “hotel chantique” on Google and arrived right into my blog when I was talking about the furnishing the other week. The family came over to Kota Bharu for holiday and attending kenduri, and while initially they wanted to stay for 2 nights, this afternoon when they just arrived here and I brought them inside the apartment, they’ve now decided to extend the stay for another night! So yay, Alhamdulillah :) Nasib baik sempat kemas & siapkan apartment tuh last minit sebelum diorang datang! ^_^;

Thanks to some technical error, by the time these pictures were taken, we were still waiting for the wardrobe, TV table, kitchen cabinet and dining table to arrive at the apartment =,= Expected by tonight we’ll be having everything at place. Until then, here is a glance of our serviced apartment by this afternoon.
