Long Overdue : 1/12/2012 - Raptai Penutupan MAHA International 2012

Ni masa raptai Penutupan MAHA. I had to take charge on behalf of my team sebab Kak Siti ada engagment lain sebelah pagi.

Team from my company Vocalwealth Networks :-)

Sessi sound check......I conducted the choir through the sound check sessions.

By noon , Kak Siti dah sampai to conduct the choir untuk sessi Raptai akhir.

Sebagai bukan seorang penjawat awam , saya sangat-sangat teruja bila dapat baju yang ada embroidery Jata Negara with my name on it! Hahaha! Orang kerja kerajaan memang dah tak hairan dengan baju-baju ni but for me , it's an honour to be able to contribute my musical talent to the country.

Koir MAHA 2012. I mulakan tugas training this more or less 70 choir members from various department under the Ministry Of Agriculture from mid June till end of November 2012. 5 bulan! Kerja dah habis 2 December lepas tapi sampai la ni *31st March 2013* , payment belum dapat lagi :-(

Choir members of MAHA 2012 in their respective vocal group.

Photo with the Choir's manager , Encik Khushairi aka Abang Chai. Kepala best!

Lepas show , Abang Chai bawak round-round ke booth member-member dia di MAHA. Oh my,,,,,penuh tangan bawak balik goody bags & samples! Abang Chai siap jadi banker , pinjam-kan I RM200 & Kak Siti entah tak ingat berapa ratus ringgit....budak-budak I pun pinjam cash jugak dengan Abang Chai untuk shopping kat MAHA. In the pic above is Kacang Pool. One of my favourite food. I mula kenal Kacang Pool ni dari keluarga Arwah Seniwati Normadiah. She and family orang Singapore , they taught me to eat it. Last 2 years masa MAHA 2010 , ini jugak food yang I makan kat food court MAHA ni. Hmmmm.....kena cari Dumb Cooking method to cook it. Hehehe! 

Yay! We did it. I'm so happy that untuk MAHA 2012 , I dapat buat vocal arrangements untuk 2 lagu penuh! Syukur kerana diberi kepercayaan dan bakat :-)

Long Overdue : 4 & 5/12/2012 - Putrajaya Treat For The Girls :-)

This was last December when Nova Nona had a show with AADK at PICC , Putrajaya. Checked-in at Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside Hotel. It was a treat for Yna and her girlfriends laa kira-nya. Tapi yang sebenor-benornya I yang malas nak ulang-alik Ampang - Putrajaya waktu tu. 

Couple of days before Nova Nona's show , I had to conduct a 2 days vocal workshop for the AADK Idol finalists at the AADK's HQ in Sungai Merab , just nearby Putrajaya. I also had to squeeze time to judge at a singing competition at Taman Warisan Putrajaya with my business partner Cikgu Siti Hajar. Masa tu juga lah me & my studio team kena selenggarakan koir MAHA di Tapak MAEPS , Serdang untuk Majlis Penutupan MAHA 2012. So , 3 - 4 hari dok main area Putrajaya.....on that note , checking in at Pullman looks like a good call....hehehe!

It was my second time here at the Pullman's. The first time I came to this hotel was to attend a wedding. Tapi masa tu datang malam. Unique hotel.

The hotel's walkway to our room.

Our room at the Pullman's , the only room yang ada during that time. Wanted a bigger suite tapi penuh. Kinda small for RM300+ per nite. 

The girls don't mind having to share a small room. MP was a sport too. All of us crashed in a room. 

Shot wajib....hahaha!

Another wajib shot :-)

Hmmm....katanya bilik penuh....tapi sunyi sesunyi sunyinya....

Breakfast time........macam-macam ada at the breakfast buffet spread.

Took the opportunity to walk around the hotel with the kids.

Spent some time chilling at the pool.....

A cosy pool when there's not many people....

All smiles in the water.....

Putrajaya International Convention Centre aka PICC on the background , it was where the girls had their gig the night before.

Not everyday that we got to go jalan-jalan in Putrajaya. Took the opportunity to explore parts of Putrajaya.

Untung Ashel sebab dapat manja-manja dengan 'kakak-kakak' dia yang lain.

Nova Nona , tahun ni kena slow down sikit aktiviti seni especially for Yasmin & Yna. Both ambil UPSR.

Had a great time in Putrajaya these few days. Tak habis explore lagi pun. As for me , memang kerap ke Putrajaya tapi banyak lagi destinasi menarik I yang belum sampai kat Purtajaya ni. Insya'Allah , will find time to explore more of Putrajaya in future.

Bersawang Dowh!


As Salam and Good Day to all.....

Janji yang sangat-sangat tidak dapat ditepati. Janji nak cuba update blog regularly but unfortunately , I can't. Work load banyak sangat. Too tired most of the time. Sleep is my number one priority than to stay up till late on the net. When I do stay up , it has to be me & my music. Endless vocal arrangements to be done now that I'm involved with a musical theatre production.  *sigh*....

MP helped a lot by sending me here and there for my work despite having his own chores to do. Lucky me that MP works on his own so he can adjust his time to suit mine. Lots of compromisation needed between me & MP and so far things went well. Alhamdulillah. 

Honestly , I'm satisfied with my work as a vocal instructor. Kalau boleh nak stop mengajar and lead my simple life as a mummy to my kids. Tapi , tak boleh lagi. Praying for a financial miracle on my side to happen , hehehe!.....then only I will step down from doing what am doing now. The money's good and the pay helped me & my family a lot. 

Maybe you're wondering , why am I so busy working?

Been 3 years now and here's why......

Dah 3 tahun , MP's no more working with a company as a CLO (Chief Liaison Officer) , he's now a freelancer. A bit tough but he's had it working with a company. It's a move that he had to take and I have to respect his decision even though it certainly affected the family's financial situation. As his legal life-partner , I support whatever he does  as long as he's not involve in any business yang salah di sisi undang-undang dan agama.

With MP working on his own , that means we have to work extra hard to beef up our income to accommodate our needs & expenses. MP tak suruh I kerja pun but since I can earn that extra income for the family doing what I love doing,,,,,why not? That way , MP can focus on the important expenses and I can help top-up whatever that's needed. Tak perlulah semuanya nak bergantung pada MP seorang.

I pray that MP will succeed with his new 'venture' coz if he does,,,,,I'll get to share the cake too *wink*.



And as for me , I know my strength as a Vocal Instructor. I grew from an Assistant Vocal Trainer to a Vocal Trainer and now am a Vocal Instructor. Syukur. I've conducted choir groups in front of a Ketua Pengarah , KSUs , Deputy Ministers and Ministers.......tinggal nak tunggu peluang untuk conduct choir depan TPM , PM. Kalau dapat conduct choir depan Sultan & Agong....itu kira bonus laa. In-sya-Allah. Dulu ni semua kerja Kak Siti , tak pernah terbayang pun yang I akan dapat peluang untuk conduct choir.....but now I have the chance to do so. Amin :-)


Last week semasa perhimpunan bulan Mac di Ibu Pejabat Agensi Anti Dadah Kebangsaan (AADK) , Ketua Pengarah announced yang kumpulan choir AADK adalah yang terbaik di bawah Kementerian Dalam Negeri. Senang hati bila KP convey mesej yang Menteri KDN puji kumpulan choir AADK. Syukur! Syukur! Syukur!


Tahun ni je dah 2 kali KDN jemput choir AADK buat persembahan untuk event KDN. Both event attended by Pak Menteri himself. I'm so happy that I managed to mole the choir group from nothing and became the best within choir groups in KDN! Under my supervision since October 2010 , mission accomplished. 


Seperti biasa , bila kita berjaya buat perubahan di satu-satu tempat tu,,,,tak semua yang berkenan walaupun bekerja di bawah bumbung yang sama. Boss suka , student suka tapi ada pegawai bawah yang tak suka walaupun kejayaan itu adalah untuk agensi mereka sendiri , bukan untuk I pun. To me , I believe in Allah. My rezeki is in His hands. I serah semua soal rezeki pada Dia , without question. Bila berurusan dengan insan-insan yang ada PHD ni , I tak kuasa. Better let God lay the path for me. Selagi ada rezeki di satu-satu tempat tu , I will do my work full heartedly. I have to give my all and do my best. Hal-hal remeh-temeh lain , serah pada Dia. He'll manage those scumbags on my behalf. That way , I'm safe. I can concentrate on my work and stay sane...hehehe! Depa nak meroyan , nak terlingkup , nak cemburu , nak marah , nak hangin....tu depa punya pasal. Hidup ni senang bila kita berserah pada Dia. Bukan kata kita tak perlu buat apa-apa....boleh je kalau nak , tapi buat setakat yang baik-baik sahaja. Kalau dah ada terdetik nak aniayakan orang , nak lempang orang , nak bunuh orang.....makanya.....we have to know when to let it go. Sabar. Let Allah do it for you. 


Will have to stop here , nak kena siap-siap. Ada kelas. Talk soon. Take care all. Tata!


Ni gambar masa event mesyuarat Menteri dengan pengarah & pegawai kanan kerajaan di KDN. Caption-caption tu kerja budak-budak choir AADK....tak dapek den nak nolong....hahaha!


A note for me : Another event with Hishamuddin coming end of March  :-)
