Another "Blue" Day

Today, my student, Sang Jun, asked me why I looked so pale. I didnt realised that it shows on my face, the stress of working there is draining me emotionally and physically. I might as well quit, tak larat dah.. too tired.

Anyway, since hari ni adalah hari "Blue" sedunia, so aku macam malas nak tulis panjang. Why is it hari blue sedunia? I woke up to a gloomy weather, nampak mcm nak hujan, but tak hujan. No sun, no rain, cam nak ribut, takde angin, it was so gloomy. The weather this morning was a perfect reflection of my feeling.

Maybe I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, I dunno.. But everything serba tak kena. Iman's appointment was supposed to be at 10am today, but we went there 2 hrs early sebab Iman hilangkan the original appointment card. I thought it was at 8am, but I was mistaken. Maka, tunggu la kat situ sampai pukul 10am. At least today, I can rest in peace knowing that there's nothing serious abt Iman's condition.

She has been having this bout of stomach pain for quite a while. We dunno what it is. According to the doctor today, nothing that require immediate attention. Phew! I can sigh in relief now. But unfortunately my "blues" doesnt seem to want to leave me.. zzz..

I'm not gonna talk abt that blue, it's too depressing. Recipe Carrot Cake tu akan aku paste di bawah ni with the alteration to the original recipe.
