this lease of life…

Exactly at this hour, 11.30pm on this date 17th September last year…I was lying in a hospital bed talking to my neurologist about my Pterional Craniotomy Surgery procedure on the next morning.

Gosh! I can’t believe that tomorrow is my ONE year anniversary of my brain surgery. Thank you GOD for granting me this lease of life…I am so blessed with all your unconditional Loves.

After endured an eight-hour brain surgery, 10 days hospital stay and 4 months hospitalization leave without complaint, I learnt and faced my days with confidence, hoping to be better, stronger and able to do more independently in whatever endeavors.

Yeah, it was such an eventful one year really and here I am now…feeling great as always.

14th January 2013…my 5th BT Post Surgery Doctor’s check-up went quite okay…my Visual Field eye test seemed improving too. Despite all those, I am still unfit to start work and have been given another month to rest in addition of my 4 month’s medical-leave. But yeah!! Being me…AFiey the AFlame, AFire, eager and enthusiastic as always, decided to kick off my work on the dot of my 4th months medical-leave that falls on 16th January 2013 instead. I know it’s a risk but I took a chance as I feel it’s a need for me to get back into the groove, establish my self-confidence level and absorbing as much design updates activities in the market to gear up myself in phases until my actual work starting date.

Back to Work

Back to Work

 16th January 2013…I was one excited early bird, getting ready for the day. Put up my best, smart and casual office attire, some make-up on and perfume. Had a good healthy breakfast and yes…I am set to Rock’nRolla…!

Doing what I do best...

Doing what I do best…

Being in the office environment with my superb team, sketching some space planning, catching up with my Clients, visiting few of my completed Projects after a long break…kind of made me feel like…Well AFiey, you are so so back in action and so so ready to shake the world…*It’s Great to be Back!!…It has been a while though and Hey!…Doña Hermosa, Tranquilo…take it easy babe, nice and slow…!

AFiey is back in action!

Beginning is a new Ending

Praise to Almighty that I am still here and fully alive to face the New Year 2013..! Hope everyone is alive too and wishing all a very Happy New Year with the new Chapter. So now, I guess the movie “2012” is officially a Boo Boo and same goes to the Mayan who’s prediction!

2012

2012

Indeed 2012 was such an eventful year for me and family with all those ups and downs, happiness and sadness but here I am, still breathing and surviving to face 2013. I hope new year will grant more happiness and health to me, my family and to us all.

Last 12 years ago, after Y2K, which was in year 2000 the 2nd Millennium year, I did it again tonight – walking around in Kuala Lumpur city centre on New Year eve with my loved ones *now with additional our darling Ally for sure…:)) We were there with few more thousand people, locals and tourist gearing up for the New Year Countdown at Kuala Lumpur Merdeka Square.

It was well planned to end the eventful 2012 with something lively and start 2013 in a great spirit. As usual, it’s always have and always be a double celebrations on the last day of the year. It’s the 41th Birthday of my beloved husband on 31st December and New Year Eve on 1st January. In order to be there by midnight and not to be stuck in a massive traffic, we started our festive celebration journey by taking a MyRapid light rail transit (LRT) from my place to the heart of Kuala Lumpur and walked to the hotel.

Yes! We have pre-booked a traveller boutique hotel located within Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Leboh Ampang the historic downtown area, which is near the KL Merdeka Square, the Central Market and also the famous China Town – The Petaling Street. The hotel called “Hotel 1915” as it’s occupying an elegant old building that constructed in 1915 and freshly renovated in chic modern contemporary welcoming interior design concept. Complete with sustainable green materials and finishes and muted shades of grey, olive and white. We’re quite impressed with the Hotel in overall from the location, the architecture and design, the concept, services and facilities. It’s just nice and perfect and fully recommended for the first timer Kuala Lumpur traveller.

After checked in the hotel, we walked to the Central Market and Petaling Street – The China Town. Then we walked around the city enjoying and absorbing the city centre night feels. An hour to midnight we finally walked back to our hotel to keep our stuff and get ready to march with other thousands more people on the road to the KL Merdeka Square. It’s totally amazing experience -The people, the colours, the loudness and cheers, those vuvuzelas, whistles, blowers, and those batteries powered colourful head-gears…they were tremendously crazy.!!

A few more seconds to 12am 1st January 2013…everyone started counting…5,4,3,2,1…..and cheering….Happy New Year !!! Then, Bang Bang Boom above us all…those Firework displays were AF spectacular!!!

It was great be out here, breathing some fresh air and be somewhere like home away from home after my 4 months Post Surgery recovery period. Nevertheless, It’s a New Year…The new Year with the New Beginning, New Hopes and a New Creative Healthy Me…;)

Happy 2013.

Happy 41th Birthday my CINTA (LOVE)

My CINTAs...as in LOVE

My CINTAs…as in LOVE

My Partner my Lover, he is now forty one
Gotta reach up for a kiss cuz he ain’t no shorty man
He’s tall, he’s dark and he’s handsome too
Don’t try to clock him cuz he said I do
I do already to a girl – like 16 years back
I do already to a girl – that’s me, his sweetheart

Doesn’t matter if you feel and looking good

Better than you should

For a guy whose turning 41 from the four Zero

Still Hot as a Volcano…Kickin ass like Theo

Still Hard like Armadillo…Yummy like Cocoa

Still Flexible like Playdoh…Smooth Spicy like Aglio Olio

Even at 41 he looks so young

35 year olds folks still call him son

Mistakenly think him as a Uni Student sometime

Well baby, Praise to HIM …it’s a great compliment.

Wishing you many happy days

Of being great in so many ways

Happy happy forty one, may more to come

Keeps it going till the break of dawn

So never change baby, just stay as you are

Your heart, your way, your repertoire

Here in Kay Jay, Kay Ell and everywhere

Wherever you go
You should always know
I love you so and GOD loves you more
As much as air and as crystal clear as H2O

Happy 41th Birthday, love.

 Yours truely

Afiey – 31.12.12

Love Life & Live Love

It has been three months of my Post Surgery and I am still resting at home accompanied by my darling daughter as it is her year-end school holiday. I supposed to start work like right now but according to my doctor’s last check up on 12th Dec 2012, things are improving but I am unfit still to start work as I am suffering with slight nervous system and mild anxiety issues. So, I have been given another month to rest and continue my medication.

Which means, I will probably start my work as usual like mid January next year 2013…*Hope I will survive the Mayan’s prophecy though..!

Mayan Who ??

Since I have to rest at home for four months, I take this opportunity to spend my quality time with my beloved family and myself…Re-plan and re-organize my future…Updating myself with latest Interior Design and Architecture news…Do a lot of readings about Love Life and Live Love…research about Brain Tumour awareness and cures too.

Love Life Live Love

My great achievement today is…I finally found my most waited debut album ever – “The World From the Side of The Moon” by the humbled and inspired singer, Phillip Phillips, which I have been looking for a month after it has been released since 19th November 2012 worldwide. What a lucky girl I am as that is the first, the one and only copy in the shop before it will be restored in a week time… Gosh! I am so Energizerateored…”Like a drum my heart never stop beating”…Gone Gone Gone – PP
