Unexpected gifts

It had been awhile since I last bought/read humour magazine "Gila-Gila"..but the cover of this month's edition caught my eyes the other day :

I thot it was quite funny the way the girl in purple baju kurung was posing, and what she said..:-)..

(check out that two grinning customers..wanted to join them too..hehe)

This topic arose at the time when it was quite difficult to get supplies of cooking oil,

..but I guess by now the guy is happy that she'd accepted his proposal (with all the gifts, minus the oils..hehehe..)

[ note : I've yet to read the mag.. :-) ]

Talk about gifts, last Monday I was pleasantly surprised when I got a lovely material from a former office mate who has been like an older sister since I first knew her..

She said the soft colour suited me and asked me to make a "Kebaya" dress style out of this material as she'd like to see me in one, but I said I prefer Baju Kurung as it will last longer...[tqvm but sorry ye sis!]

And later on in the evening whilst practising bowling with my friends, each one of us got a rose..

..may not be the real one but nice.. tq. :-)

Lovely gestures..made my day.
(even thou I played bowling badly that evening..hehe..)

I miss gila-gila! I have not been reading it for more than 10 years now. I wonder whether the content maintained gila2 tak?
I was also a big fan of Ujang. Ada lagi tak ya...But anyway, I will be able to find out soon when I go back! ;)

I pun lama tak baca gila2. Dulu2 suka baca. Mad pun I beli gak.

Cheqna said...

Cheqna said...


I wonder if they actually stopped the production for many years b'cos tak lah perasan the mags kat bookstores or stalls?

..the time when it was a must buy for us was during raya hols..berebut nak baca the special edition..hehe.
