Last Sunday, Aniki and Rozi got engaged. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the ceremony due to work committments which I couldn't get out of! :( Fortunately, my dear cousin Pinah (a.k.a. Nomad) took some photos of the event at my house. I'm just waiting to see the photos from the actual ceremony held at Rozi's. Anyway, just wanted to wish the both of them many congratulations and best wishes!!!
So today I found out that Irra (my office mate) knows my cousin through her brother-in-law (Irra's, that is). Gila eh, small world berabis! Anyway, Irra wanted to make sure that my cousin (Rozie) was the same person she knew. So off I went to google her name to find a photo and guess what I came across - turns out that Rozie's a bit of a sharpshooter. She was the best eagle eye shooter at the Annual Shooting Competition amongst Branches of Women Police in Brunei two years in a row! I found one Borneo Bulletin article for 2008 and a few articles from last year (here's an article from the Brunei Times). It's so amazing, my laidback cousin being the best shooter! I'm so proud of her! Congratulations, Rozie!!! [hug]

So I'm now well into the third week at work (though the "first week" was a joke, since I only "worked" for one day before going on a 4-day weekend for Hari Raya, haha!). It's been good so far but also rather tough, lots to learn but so little time (so what else is new?!). Anyway, just wanted to post a few photos of me and my WONDERFUL (NOT! haha!) new collegues AND friends, Irra and Jay. Oh yeah, during my interviews and so-called first day of work, I was wearing the headscarf (see first photo), just to be on the safe side. As you can see, the moment I found out that it's not a requirement, off with the tudong, haha! ;p
And here are Irra and Jay a.k.a. Firdaus (isn't that a cute photo of Jay, hehe). Irra's sharing an office with me, and she started working the same time as me. There's also Nani but she's working on the ground floor - I don't have a photo yet! Jay's been in the company a while, though it doesn't show, hahaha! >;D Anyway, he has an office of his own, but it's ok, I bet he's lonely, hehe. So hope this working life remains smooth-going, satisfying and fun - Amin!
It is almost the end of the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri. I think it was a good day, albeit a bit tiring. Tomorrow will be even more hectic, I think, but oh well... Right, just wishing every Muslim out there:
SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI!!! MAAF ZAHIR DAN BATIN!
