I'm handling one Myanmar project at the moment. So I have to go back and fro like every quarter of the year. Maybe after this, once a month as the project will soon be in the engineering design stage. During my first trip there, I was so bored that I dont know what to do or where to go. There just isnt any place that is interesting (for me) to visit. But before my second visit, I did some serious google and I just found out that actually Myanmar is very famous with their gemstones. (How dumb am I huh?)
Myanmar is one of the biggest suppliers in gemstones especially rubies and sapphires. They are also among the best gemstones in the world. You can find various colors of sapphires, even in pastel shades with very reasonable price.
Since I've accidentally misplaced my diamond ring (the one that bf bought at Habib few years back, tho it's just a commercial ring, but still) at home, I decided to have one colored stone ring (just in case I found back my diamond ring, so I wont be having 2 similar ring), as I plan to have a proper (means: 4c checklist) diamond ring for my nikah.
Blue sapphire is not one of my option as I think I dont look good in anything in blue (ok memang saiko sikit) neither do ruby as dark red is not my preference. So guess what's in between these two stones? PINK!! yes, pink sapphire! but some people called it pink ruby.. anyway it is still the same minerals. If it is in a subtle pale pink, they called it pink sapphire, but if it is more to a deep rich pink, they will called it pink ruby.
So to cut the story short, I went to the famous Yangon Gem Museum, and bought my first gemstone. So there you go, my pink sapphire ring, that I'm going to use it as my engagement ring. Kalau Kate Middleton pakai blue sapphire, I ada pink sapphire..tak main lah ikut2 orang nih..kerlass kan?? ahaks!! :p
i've dated my bf for 4 1/2 years now (Alhamdulillah) but technicallay, we've been dating for less than half of the duration due to his work nature..4 weeks dekat darat and another 4 weeks dekat laut..it's quite a hard time for me..not on emotional side but more on having to live and do things all by myself when he was not around..tayar kereta pecah, batteri kereta flat, paip rumah bocor, dinner makan sorang2, etc. but Alhamdulillah, I managed to sort my own life during his absence..which is a good thing for now i know that i'm actually quite a tough girl :D (clap clap for my own self).
but, dating and being married are two different thing..being apart when you're still a couple is ok..but being apart after u're getting married, tambah2 if dah pregnant or dah ada baby..perghh i can forsee quite a challenge there..even my mom pun risau if masa tgh pregnant nak terbersalin n hubby tak dapat balik..kan susah? but considereing his work nature, i have to accept it no matter what..kang tak bagi dia pi ke laut, sapa pulak nak bagi nafkah kan? he had tried to apply for office base work but takde yg memberangsangkan..either tak lepas interview..or gaji tak berpatutan with his experience..nak buat macam mana kan..hmm
orang selalu cakap kalau kita ikhlas nak membina masjid, somehow Allah akan permudahkan and permurahkan rezeki...so to cut the story short, bf finally dapat an offer way beyond our expectation..gaji yang on par with his old salary and the best part is..his office building is just behind my office building..syukur yg amat2..so lepas kawin boleh la car pool :D
tapi bila dia dah sentiasa dekat dengan kite nih..mula lah rasa mengada2 tu lebih sikit..semua benda nak bergantung harap kat dia..terus dah tak jadi tough n independent lady..jadi needy n gedix pulak..ishh apa kes nih? -_-"
