Wind wind wind

This evening one of my close friends treated a few of us for dinner at a seafood restaurant. We had lala, prawn, steamed seabass, pucuk paku goreng sambal belacan, sweet and sour crabs, salted egg crabs and steamed buns. I literally licked the salted egg from the crab shells. Absolutely yummy. And now I'm all gung-ho to face a few days of water retention from all the extra sodium intake.

On the way home I had trouble talking in the car due to a bout of hiccups. Most probably from all the eating and drinking and talking. My friend commented on how it's funny I still can get hiccups at my age.

Orang tua-tua cakap kalau kanak-kanak kecil tersedu-sedu maknanya nak membesar atau meninggi lagi. God have mercy on me if it meant adding a few more inches to my 5'11'' height. Death by decapitation from the fan blades in the living room of your house sounds rather painful and messy.

aKew bk@n Dak hinGusanZ myspace occay!

I got this text message a few minutes ago from one of my ex-students (and none of the content has been changed):

''bOnjouR m@daME how R u? iNGat largIye x kat s@yeww nIeYy .. walaupunzz maD@me slaRlew marAh kt sayerr i stIlL misS u la m@@m ahaks sumTiMEz sy 6pk miz kt TtDi tp nak tewgo maluwww hik hik''

I cannot remember who the student is because he/she didn't give me his/her name. So I cannot remember why I was always angry at him/her. But after the hassle of trying to decipher the sms, sekarang ni aku jadi marah balik.

Signs of old age #5

Low rise skinny jeans: a tight fitting item of clothing that not only glorifies your muffin top, but is also so tight that wearing it for more than 4 hours can cause restriction of blood circulation to the legs and induce water retention.

I tried on a pair a few days ago and could only manage to get it past my knees.

Je m'appelle Nurhayati Yahya

This morning my students sat for their mid-semester French test. At the end of the one-hour test, I discovered a few things about my students. Besides the fact that everyone thought the test was difficult, I also found out that not every one of them knew how to spell my name correctly.

So I've compiled a list:

My real name (as it appears on my IC): Nurhayati Binti Yahya

Here are the variants cooked up by them:

-Miss Yati
-Madam Nurhayat
-Mme Nur Hayati
-Mrs Noor Hayati (I have now the option of being either single or married)
-Cik Siti Nurhayati
-Miss Noor
-Nurhayati bte Yaman

...and last but not least, ''Puan''. Let's just keep it short and simple, shall we?
