Farewell Kak Rose..May you rest in peace - Al Fatihah



Met this beautiful lady on 10 of October.. a PR and Branding consultant for 1nita workshop I've attended. She looks so vibrant even though she's not feeling well that day..wearing her oriental look blouse with embroidery of roses on blouse shoulder, enthusiastic sharing knowledge and tips.



She seems age gracefully with a long hair claimed her age is 50. WOW... I want to be exactly like her if ever I could live that long, full of energy.

25th October received sms from Datin Norizan saying that she's critically ill at HKL in High Dependency Ward... Got to know that she was on life support machine & was in comma. Me, Zaklean, Shereen, Nas & Eda decided to visit her the next morning...

HKL - how life was so fragile...looking at her stiffed and hopeless was something unexpected and unimaginable ...How I wish and feel she will survive. A total opposite than the person I got to know. I read Yassin beside her...only God knows what she really felt at that moment... She had leaukimia that spread aggressively just within 2 months. How very sad..for someone that really take care of what she ate and live healthily. Still remember tips given by her to eat guava that good for skin..and consume drinking water by looking carefully at the PH level.

Got to rush back to fetch Syamil from school, on my way driving back received sms said that she's gone. Shhhgghhh...Innalillah....Rest in peace Kak Rose...Al fatihah.

EAT PRAY LOVE

I took a break in between my hectic life watched EAT PRAY LOVE with Gigi...I always adore Julia Roberts..one of the reason I am watching..It inspired me to travel...I am not sure how possible that to me though:) This remind me of Tasha that have so much courage to travel by end of Nov for six months under working holiday visa to NZ, all by herself..I am so envy...

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia is a 2006 memoir by American author Elizabeth Gilbert. The memoir chronicles the author's trip around the world after her divorce and what she discovered during her travels.


At 32 years old, Elizabeth Gilbert was educated and had a home, a husband, and a successful career as a writer. However, she was unhappy in her marriage and often spent the night crying on her bathroom floor. She has an affair, during which she separated from her husband and initiated a divorce, which he contested. The affair continued for some time but did not work out, leaving her devastated and alone. While writing an article on yoga vacations in Bali, she met a ninth-generation medicine man who told her she would come back and study with him. After finalizing her difficult divorce, she spent the next year traveling. She spent four months in Italy, eating and enjoying life (Eat). She spent four months in India, finding her spirituality (Pray). She ended the year in Bali, Indonesia, looking for "balance" of the two and found love (Love) in the form of a dashing Brazilian factory owner.


Many interesting characters...beautiful places. THUMBS UP:)

For a new business to have our own ULR address and for FREE is an ideal situation. I need to be seen as profesional. I used wordpress as a platform, I wish I could make something better but I got to satisfied with whatever I had for the time being. The function of www.littlesyam.my is to introduce services or products I offering and they could contact me should they interested to use my services or purchasing my products. dot(.)mydomainregistry has arranged a workshop to guide a participant in basic IT knowledge. Furthermore 1nita community could also advertise in http://www.1nita.my website. It is like a virtual shop. What I can say is 1nita initiative has became one of my marketing tool.



On 8 october 2010 dot(.)mydomainregistry has invited 1nita community/participant to a networking session vs raya gathering in Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Even the number of students not many this time, but I am happy to have them around. I prefer to have it at place where everything is ready... but since the space are available for use and very close to my home so why not and I just give a try but taking care the food side and facility and teaching at the same time is not my forte, but by help from hot chick everything went smoothly. (how can I do without you Gigi..thanksssss). Students seems to catch the lesson quite fast probably 2 of them are from design background.
