Later for that

Before anything, tadaaaa, how do u like my new header??
The pictures pretty much sum up who I am.
What can u tell about me when u see those pictures? I say, if u know me very well, u can answer that question rather easily.

I'm planning on changing my background as well, but as of now I can't find one that I like yet. U gotta bet that I'm the MOST indecisive person ev.er. and in consistent for that matter too! I changed my header so many times already, and yet, I hardly post anything~

_________________________ . ..... . . . . ... .. . .. .... . ......

I'm not gonna pretend that I'm still that young kid that does not have to worry anything "too serious", I actually have to start thinking about responsibility of being an "actual adult". I still want to live my la-la-la land and just push away any serious decision. Later I know, it gets back to me sooner than I thought.
I was awaken today by my cousin. She said, I got to know some stuff because I'm the eldest in my family. That hits me big time. Yes, I'm the eldest, and so, I bear that first child responsibility that I bet millions others are bearing as well. Little that I know, that is serious biz. I was so happy talking to her that I dont realise it at that moment. Since the conversation minutes ago, it got me. I'm actually an adult and I have to know so many things, and decide on so many things. I may not have to do it now, but it is not that painful to start think about it. Life has a way to just spring to u unexpected decisions, questions and d.ra.ma. I do not wanna be a naive grown up that thinks she've seen a lot that she knows how to make sense of everything. It is not a huge dilemma, but I'm still trying to find myself. Who am I? What defines me?

I thought I've found my place in this world, but given the 21 years I was in it, I may not even have left any markings yet, not even a tiny one. The real question is, where do u find all the answers to such questions? I simply think u can't. Please don't tell me, it's up to me to find it. It is very cliche, and I hate repetitive things. I wrote, in my other diary, what defines me...and I came up with just 2 things, mainly what I enjoy doing. Err...that does not go so well. Maybe somebody can describe me, either positive or negative. I can take it. Grass is not always greener over the other side. I totally got it if somebody is holding a grunge on me. But if they do, not like they gonna read my blog eh?


I'm gonna leave my so deep inner thoughts just like that. hah. Talking bout responsibility....lol.
Honestly, I'm not ready for that yet... there will be a time where I will ready. U'll see. I'll make the announcement.. haha

Well, happy holidays y'all. Hopefully I'll come back with so many nice pictures and show them to u!

buku panggil mai mai

since when does my blog got so lame? i cant recall...

i rarely updated my blog this semester cos i was a total mess.... a total hot mess. now that it's the exam week, i decided to give my blog a few thoughts. farisa is such a weirdo during exam times. worst part is, i have an exam tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. i should be studying, but my brain couldnt take it anymore and i gotta stop and write somewhere else, other than my notebook!! damn im very scared for the 2 exams left. they are by far the toughest courses i've ever taken. the reading was so intense that i sometimes end up singing while reading...(err....)

u see, i cant actually contain myself anymore from the excitement of my winter holidays! it's gonna be aMaZinG!! despite that, i still have a few more arrangement to do! talking about a hell of a busy semester! i'm already planning what to wear at each city, giloss kan?? haha

oh, i wanna give u a buzz...guess whatt dawg? i just bought a ticket to see freakingly amazing Britney Spears in Toronto for her Circus tour! ahhhhhhhhh! that will be my highlight for next year! and it's in March....somewhat close to my bday, so i can pretty much call it my early bday gift for myself. haha.

all i can think of right now is, how am i gonna save money? lol. that ticket cost me 150dollars (gedik beli front seat) and u cant blame me..huhu i grew up listening to her songs, of course i wanna see her up close. izzy and i were actually considering to buy the VIP tickets. haha. tak beli pon cos that would be 500 bucks. takpe, ini pon utk balas dendam tak pegi tgk spice girls early this year! bengong ticket habess....

korang jgn jeles plakkk :D PCD is the opening act. haha

later gators, buku panggil "mai mai, mai sini"

i can write 2000 words in 1 hour....dlm diary lahh

why is it so hard to finish a paragraph.

I'm writing an essay right now for my Dynamic Earth class.
I'm writing about convergent plate margin which account to why we get :
- explosive volcanoes such as Mt St Helen and Mayon
- deep and shallow earthquakes
- big, tall mountains such as Mt Everest.

It is a 10 pages essay. Right now I have another 3 pages to go, and I seriously don't know if I have enough material left to fill in the 3 pages. Damn it

Ok, balek menulis karangan panjang!

today in a few paragraphs~

I've been very slow with my blog. I never felt so occupied all the time. This year is very jumbled up! I can't blame anyone, or anything, it's freaking third year! I am expected to be busy! and for the record, I am!

haha. what an intro.

Today, I feel proud of myself for so many reasons
The foremost is I spent significant hours in the library studying. This has become my new habit since last week. lol. Last week was my first time to study in Weldon Library since I've been here, but last week was just for an hour. If not cause of hunger and headache, I would have stayed there longer...I'm proud of myself (giving myself a pat)
This is to prove that I'm not a lazy bum. And whom am I trying to prove to? errr...myself.

Today, I went to see my lecturer to ask him some stuff that I dont understand. I asked him in class first....he said bla bla bla....and he touched my head. Fine.
And later I went to see him again in his office to clarify few more stuff...And he freaking touched my head again. I find that weird, cause he is the lecturer! Well, not that I care, just plain weird.

Today, J is looking damn fine. Super Fine. and super hawt too! I was walking (+ talking), with my lecturer (same dgn yg atas) and I bumped into him. I ignored my lecturer to talk to J. Haahaha..sorry cikgu. Cikgu then talked to M who was with J at that time. hohoho. And M told me to go to the colloquium...cause it's supposed to be fun.


Today, I went to my first colloquium ever at UWO! Shame on me! Went there alone, without Izzy whom I parted since 9.30am. I sat at the back, cos sitting at back is supposed to look cool. And the room started to be filled with old lads and unfamiliar faces. I told to myself, damn what am I getting myself into! Finally, when it is almost the time for the talk, few familiar faces walked in, including J. yea, they sat at the back. This proves my claim that sitting at the back is cool. Only old profs sat in front. The talk was fun. Ian, Sam and sape tah were talking bout their trip to Cyprus. And another 3 were talking bout their trip to Cornwall, UK. This is all part of the International Field Camp Program. Listening to their stories make me all pumped up! If possible, I want to join the program next year. Guess where they are going next year??
Freaking Portugal and SPain! Damn, I have to go on that trip! Mahu mahu, no matter what it costs me to! Well, partly it is funded, so I might pay just a lil. But I also have my dreams to go to Arctic next year. ah, I have so many things in mind, so many places to go, all I can ask for is pls, can I have more time here!

yeah. itu sahaja for today. right now, I am still hungry and headache!

Feel this

this is the title of the song i'm currently listening to on my freaking new iPod touch! haha. i'm pretty psyhed with it! lolz. and i gotta make a correction, i do have to pay tax for this iPod, it just said in the email, but not when i paid for it. bummer. damn i hate canada for its tax!

"Feel this
Can you feel this
My heart beating out of my chest
Feel thisCan you feel this
Salvation, under my breath"

in the coming weeks, let me bet on one thing, we will all be pretty much damned. this is all thanks to the upcoming final exam. i can already feel the intensity. i have not start anything yet....and i'm scared. i'm quite behind in many courses....and i have to "thank" GIS for that. GIS took away my whole weekend! it's just cause there is a probability of a pop quiz on monday, so, i have no choice but to study. let alone, this gives no time for me to study for other courses. luckily i took 4 courses this semester, so i can actually breathe a little bit. i know most of us are in the stress mode now, but i must say...dont be. exam is one thing, but stressing out? nah, not worth it. i just wanna to try to relax and just go with the flow. i dont plan out my itinerary for everyday, that's just to remind me, but in the end of the day, i just do what i want.

however, this might sound contradicting from i said above...but, i get stress out by one particular thing. stress and annoyed! but more to the annoyed part. and this has nothing to do with school but it is about a person. serious budak ni me"stress"kan saye...and org lain skali, i think. konsep i dont know ini mineral ape dah tak patut wujud di dalam kamus anda kerana anda sudah tahun keempat. k fine, i pon lupa most of the mineral....but how quartz, plagioclase looked like dlm batu adelah unacceptable!

saye tahu die kawan saye, tp saye tak suke die terlalu bergantung kepada saya dlm hampir SEMUA perkara. semua hal peribadi die pon nak bagitau dan sibuk tanye my point of view which saye pada asalnye tak kisah pon utk berikan. tp asyik bangkang semua yg saye ckp: sy pon malas lerr nak layan enkau dahh. i know some ppl have their own view on some issues, and who am i to say it's wrong, but it gets very annoying if ur p.o.v is absolutely absurd and i feel the need to correct it.

berbalek kpd issue bergantungan. saye suke keje alone, kalau bukan alone, keje in pairs or trios. tp keje pon bincang bukan terus tanye jawapan kawan saye. kite ckp laa ape kite fikir, then kite bincang. tp saye mmg pantang kalau org terus tanye jawapan and tiada usaha sendiri dahulu. masa fieldtrip hari tu pon, kami je yg buat peta n all...die tiru ape kami ckp (ape tgh bincang)...tak bother pon nak tanye nape kami fikir gitu or like at least, tanye laa explanation kalau tak paham. ni tiru je. dan saye tak suke konsep saye tgh tulis, die buleh pegi alih tangan saye utk tgk ape saye tulis....ape kejadah....and, org tgh work on one question, lets say question 2 on page 2....jgn laa tetibe dtg (dari meja lain) dan terus flip muka surat lain. double ape kejadah. dah laa tanye soalan org tak buat....ape kejadah lagi. damn smlm hot giler diri ini. itu ade lah my added stress...tidak melampau utk saye katakan: saye nak ignore die dah pasni. biar lahh saye nmpak jahat or kuang ajar ke ape ke...eden tak rase kehilangan pon kalau die tak kawan ngan saye. haaa, jahat tak jahat...
plus die dah buat kenyataan ini:

"saye tak yah pon amik geology ni, so saye tak yah laa berusaha sekeras korang"

that is bull-schist!
dah takyah amik, buat pe amik! the way die ckp tu, mmg laa nada joke, tp the bitterness of those words go straight to my heart. it's like, korang berusaha keras ah, cos die tahu kitorang kene maintain some average....pastu aku tiru ar. tak paham tanye je...tak yah berusaha pon sebab korang mesti tahu jawapan. ade esemen minggu depan kene hanta, die dah call byk2 kali ajak buat same2. yea right, saye nak buat sndiri. if die call, saye dah nak honest ngan die and ckp awak buat sndiri supaya awak tahu sndiri utk final nanti. itu sy nak ckp...if die call laa...

tp, ape korang rase? ni baru sebahagian stress yg diberikan oleh 1 insan kepada saye.
damn i hope i dont look evil with my decision.
hah. it is the righteous thing to do.

dah arhhh nanti korang sama stress.

in a month and few days, I wil be damn happy. at least for 2 weeks

The downfall of neglecting ur blog is: once u get all pumped out to write your story after that long break, u just don't know where to start! which story to tell first and what not.

That is me now. Damn u 4 labs this semester. I took 4 courses this semester on the hopes that I can concentrate more on watershed hydrology since people are giving me bad comments about that class. Apparently I do not realise that I chose all 4 courses that all has labs. One big sigh!

I know one for sure that I wanna write first. It's a must-tell thing!
Well, winter break is approaching AND I'm pretty sure you are all very excited! That long break (err...) where we can just chill out and spend the money we've saved for so long.
I psyched! that's for sure. Althought I still have to bare in mind that I had to suffer final exams! My schedule this year is bad. I had exams on 8th, 9th, 12th and 13th of Dec. Shish. I was hoping for more gaps between exams.
Back to my excitement...this winter break, I decided to split up with Izyan and teamed up with Nasri, Linda, Mubeen and Sarah. This is my first time ever going on vacation without Izyan. I think it's gonna feel a lil weird.

So, here's the plan: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Grand Canyon and Las Vegas!
I know u are thinking, can I fit all 4 places in 2 weeks. Yeah we can! And pls tell me you are jealous even when u r reading this. haHa.
I've bought my tickets last night. The price was good. I managed to get a ticket from Detroit to SF for only CAD180. That's freaking cheap! but when I added the cost for shuttle from London, it is still good though. Always I would totally go with bus if I know how to get to the airport from Greyhound station. And the return ticket from Las Vegas to Toronto is CAD300. That's ok lahh for 1st January. We are leaving very late at night, so we can still use up the day to jalan2. I'm pretty happy with the price. Who would not when u spend only CAD480 on tickets to those place, considering they are really far from here.
Right now, we are figuring where we are staying bla bla bla. We are probably staying in hostels! If so, that will be my first time ever to sleep in hostel while on vacation. shish. I really wanna stay at proper hotel actually, well cos that's just me. However, if u rationalize it, why spend ur money on hotels when u r not even gonna be there during the day? instead, use that money to go shopping! haha, more sensible eh~!!

next story: semalam i went to my first ever "real" party (bday party dulu2 tak kira) here at UWO. and ape sy rasa? ah! saye telah membazir satu malam yg bahagia!
party itu sungguh menyedihkan ok~!! tpt sempit, org dtg tak ramai...kawan2 pon tak bercakap sesama sendiri...senyap je. music pon takde laa pasang kuat2. takde pon orang mabuk (Thank God)...shish too sad man, too sad. cikgu sorang dtg pakai costume ayam. adeihhh lawak ar. overall, sedih habes! maka tak nak ckp dah. luckily after that, kami pegi makan eskrem dekat marble slab creamery yg best gels. i had cheesecake icecream with cookie dough :) heaven~
tapi downtown mlm smlm, as expected penuh dgn mereka2 yg pakai costume. lawak2 pon ade. tp dah kalau name budak western....costume gile dasyat....sejuk2 getik ni leh nak jadi daisy duke. aww!! irrelevant....dah laa outdoor party kedengaran. pape pon, i couldn't care less about that...haha cos it's not my problem. And as Realplayer news and The Gazette predicted, many people are dressing up as Joker...some tak jadi sgt pon. but nice effort. I saw somebody dressed up as Sweeney Todd. He doesnt look that creepy dowhh.......

and, one more story lahh, and i should go to bed.
I bought an iPod touch tadi :) beli ikut website apple store canada.
saje je because nak that free engrave. lolz.
rupenye free shipping and NO tax. ah, I'm in joy this weekend
The phrase that I engraved I think is so strong and it just came out randomly as I was reading my GIS textbook. Who would knew eh... I love it. Nanti2 ler ckp ape die..

yea, tido time man. smlm dah tido lewat cos berdiscuss ngan kanak2 ni pasal trip. like 4 hours gitu bincang...crazeeee

the joy and the crucial

I just finished watching Gossip Girl! Oh boy, that was a good episode! I've always try to find a favourite character whenever I watch a show. Apparently, it was not until these few weeks that I know who is my favourite character in this show. No, it's not Ms Gossip Girl. I actually love Chuck Bass! Damn I think he's hot. haha, probably right now u r going all "ewww" but yeah, I love his character, and I might as well love Ed Westwick who is playing that character. I hate the way he dresses on the show (his style was supposed to be all classy and regal), but his bad-boy character really caught my *heart*. Having said that..., no, I'm not into bad-a** boys. Just this time, it's a special case. He proves to be very naughty n devil-ish (Ms Gossip Girl called him so), but he has his romantic and sensitive side which I kinda like. Lolz. Kuddos to him for acting it so well :)
Oh, as for the female character, I love Serena. Love her style, her hair, clothes (inspired by Kate Moss), handbags etc etc basically everything bout her. huh. And I want Serena to get back together with Dan! shish! <--my new kinda thing.

Enuf with the d.r.a.m.a I actually gotta study this weekend. As much as I hate it, I have to start getting serious. I was talking to Andrew today and he made me realise how much thinking and consideration I have to make as I enter 4th year. The worst part is, I gotta start NOW! For one thing I know, I have to find a prof to become my mentor. This is for my thesis. As of now, I'm still clueless as to what I wanna do for my thesis. I thought of doing sedimentary, but Andrew said it's like too much core logging interpretations, not so much of the seismic interpretation which I love. I do have an interest in what Neil is doing. He is one hell of bright prof. He is researching on the first life on Earth could "born" at hydrothemal vents. Interesting, but Neil is a bit strict. However, I like his style. He pushes people to do work and sometimes extra work, which I like. So, I don't mind at all although I still have to think about spending time studying since I will be in my 4th year. I have to start thinking and decide fast! Oh, where r u going for winter break? i have few interesting idea. Izzy is going to Edmonton and Vancouver. I still have decide if I wanna follow her. shish. I'm always indecisive....whatevs, I will figure this one out soon.

Since I bore u with my story yg serious tu. Thought wanna show u some pics from my Thanksgiving weekend.
Not in favour of a smooooch from me ehh

TD Waterhouse Stadium. UWO Mustangs rocks this field all the time :)

mari2 mari2 pulangg...

selamat datang ke suite kami (#442)

takde apa2 laaa

seriously, why do i even bother to change my layout. it's just messy now. i lost most of my link, i have to find a picture, then i lost my quote of the day link which i cant seem to be able to add it ever since.

right now, i have no idea at all what to write. i'm just getting worse at this. i know i want to write bout so many things, but when i finally got the time to sit down and type....i just find my story is boring and lame. so takde lahh cerite

so sorry guys, no story to tell.
bunyi sedeh je. tp for the sake of updating my blog on a regular basis, i post this lamest of all post to tell u i got nothing for u. lame to the max, i know but i couldnt care less

What U missed over these couple of weeks...

This past couple of weeks has been damn crazy, and I bet it is happening on every one of us. We got our midterms coming up, hari raya, assignments....open house raya :) I know I've been too busy to update my blog and that left me with a lot of stories to tell. Somehow, I'll just cut it short eh.

Before anything, I want to ask u, have u ever stalk somebody before in your life? Be it on facebook, friendster, blog pages etc.... and I want to be honest here by saying, I do "stalk" people. Sounds way creepy eh.... Yea, I used this modern technology to find people and get to know things about them. And most of the time, I found out some things more than I should know....but that helps to clear out some of my doubts. Here comes the issue of privacy. I kinda break people's privacy in doing so. However, it is not that wrong because they put their life on display on such sites. But what I would not AND should not do is to tell him/her that I know. I normally just keep it to myself. I mean, u stalked somebody, and u want him/her to know...? com'on, that's creepy. Well, I brought this up for some reasons. I don't know if I've been stalked whatsoever, but I know some people are. So, could it be my blog has been used by some people as the source for this crime (haha)?? For so long, I thought my blog appeals only to my own circle, meaning the audience is only my friends...apparently, I was wrong. I'm pretty sure u can do some simple link to what I'm saying here. I do not want to make it too clear for, again, some reasons. that's all on that. U know, if my blog becomes private....sounds good too eh? what do u think?

I had an outdoor lab yesterday. I was not that excited for that outdoor lab, as a matter of fact I was never excited for the labs for that course. We have to meet up by Medway Creek cause we're going to measure the stream flow.....(I seriously DO NOT see how this link to Geology)...and Ranjeet (cikgu) asked for a volunteer, a girl and a boy, to wear the wet suit and these 2 people will be IN THE COLD WATER to measure the stream flow. Nobody wants to volunteer...cause it was 9.30am and it's freezing! Soon enough, one dude volunteered...and no girl want to volunteer. I told Izzy n Lilliana....there's no way I'm going in, although in my heart I was actually excited to go in, but the thought of getting wet and freeze myself in the water....gave me second thoughts. Suddenly, a girl volunteered, I said to myself "shish, now I have no chance". U see, u gotta grab the opportunity while it's there. Damn it! So she tried to get herself in that suit...sekali she said, I can't fit in this suit, it's too small and she checked the boot size for the suit and it's freaking size 5. And I think Ranjeet immediately looked at me, and I have no choice but to say, I'll do it. But it's not a forced decision, I want to do it by heart~ SO I had to walk in the stream....dalam the rapids, almost tripped myself in the stream and the flow was quite fast....I got pushed quite a bit. Shish habes! But at least I contributed :) Ranjeet was like, "look at this brave girl"...and "Farisa, are u ok?"...."Don't fall ok"...yea, damn right he has to be concerned.. huhu. I'm like the smallest girl there...and I have to "battle" the strong flow just to get data. Nevertheless, it was fun cause I got to do it and others just get the honour to watch it by the river banks. hehe. Oh yea, the water temperature was 12C. It was ok...tp sejuk juge if I had my hands in the water for too long.

Fine, now it's my hari raya story :) Weeeee!
The craziness starts with hari raya kedua after we got home from Kak Unda's place....as u can see, both of us had our lovely baju kurung which so happened to be of the same colour. This is totally unplanned! SO, see for urself. As always, I will provide with laporan bergambar.

So, it started with some simple raya pics in our living room. The title
for this pic is, "nak rasa kuih raya? kami buat ni"...
We gave the some of them to Kak Azia, and it was a big hit at Eid prayer :)
and brought the kuih to Toronto too to give them to Aunty Rahidah

Starting to warm the vain poses...
This is still consider acceptable

Haha...korup pics. This picture has a title: Rolling pin drives me crazeee.
Yea, I had the psycho face on the last pic~
I chose to stop here and continue with my pics from Toronto Eid Celebration. hehe, those pics are too darn vain n "corrupted" to be displayed. This rolling pin picture can give u a general idea what poses we will have after that..... (hint: korup tahap tak tahaaannnn~!!!!!!!!!)
Well, we've received an invitation from MASAT to attend their first ever event a.k.a Eid Celebration. So, we went there. Seronok juge... I get to meet old friends, and juniors too. Ramai gels juniors, sampai tak sempat nak kenal semua.

Nathan Phillip Square. We were hanging out with Ashley at this time.
Here is where Toronto Fashion Week is held, if I'm not mistaken.

Some statue somewhere along the way to U of T

Where Mbn lives, reminded me of Med-Syd - my residence in 1st year.
It looks somewhat like this....just less greener. haha

Ah, breakfast! Mbn belanja gune meal plan card. hehe.
All u can eat breakfast tuhhh AND they serve HALAL food here! damn it...
jeles syallll

makan breakfast ngan Linda! This place has a Harry Potter feel to it...woooo

Ah! Raya MASAT! Taylorians reunited after 2 years!! I can't believe
Mr. Joy came! I was very delighted to see him :) There are plenty of Malay food!
Including air bandung which I brought back to London makk aihhh.
Makan ape ek? Oh, we had nasi minyak, ayam masak merah, sate,
dalca, etc...dah lupa.
Linda, Me, Omar~

Sekampung. Kalau laa raya di kampung kannn...
On the way to Aunty's house~!!
It was cold, mine u.

Shafiqah, me and Khadijah yg comel. It seemed like I'm getting attach to kids now.
Oh dear, what happened..haha. bukan kahhh I'm not good with kids? Now I can even
baby sit kids. oh WOOWWWW! that's major to me....
oh, makanan dekat rumah Aunty: rendang, nasi impit, LONTONG (which I've been craving for so longggggggggggggg, thanks Aunty!), sate goreng, ayam merah, tonnes of kuih, air macam2...

the backyard shot.

too small for u to see, sorry...

tak nampak kann...aishh!
After leaving Aunty's house, I went straight to Ashley house. We kinda promised to stay there for the night. AND we're going to NUIT BLANCHE (aka white night in english) where they displayed contemporary art all over downtown toronto! It's just for a night from 7am to 7pm. Guess what? I went out at 1am! It was cold, no doubt bout that...I even had my winter gloves on. It was a one of a kind experience. The only flopside is MY CAMERA IS NOT THAT GOOD FOR NIGHT SHOT. so, I couldnt shoot many interesting things...cos it will be either too bright (due to flash) or underexpose...sigh! I totally recommend this to u, but just make sure u get enough sleep beforehand...I didnt sleep well for 2 nights before that, so I got pretty cranky...haha. sorry Ashley! Here are the 2 shots that I edited to make it look good.....

This doesnt count actually, cause it's a window display at Umbra :P but I like it.

Here's my fave! I've been eyeing this eversince I got the book that shows all the art display.
I ranked this as No 1 MUST SEE~!! It's actually thousands of books stacked to make this.
Using the colour of the book's binder, the artiste create a picture actually, of a sunset by the beach...and this is suppose to represent a hut (I guess).... and ruined hut...
Ok, that's all for now. I'm just staying in for the Thanksgiving holiday. Mbn, Linda, Nasri and I initially planned to go hiking....but that does not work out hehe

Saya bukan Kim Possible...

haaa, for those u r curious bout kenaikan elaun petronas. here's a brief copy+paste conversation i had with En. Aznan. En Aznan tegur nak tanye pasal dah settle belom pasal tiket MAS yang korup tuh.

western, i love u

Feels like writing in Bahasa Melayu for a change.
Dah seminggu dah smpai London. Tapi, to tell u the truth, tak rasa macam dah settle down pon. Banyak lagi barang tak unpack! Our kitchen masih tak berasap, makanan pon takde. SO, for the past 7 days, kitorang makan kat rumah Kak Azia for the most part. Dah makan, tido lagi rumah die, then sahur pulak! Oh gosh! Ade 2 hari je makan kat rumah sendiri, tu pon 1 hari die bekalkan bekalan utk berbuka n sahur. Darn, I felt so bad cos being too dependent on people.

Dah seminggu ni...kelass pon ok. Most of my classmates macam sama je ngan tahun lepas. Tapi this year, takde klas pon ngan KF! ape kess! Baru teringat die different program, tp what the heck...haha, Izzy must be laughing at this! hah. sorry guys, this is totally an inside thing.....
This year, I will be a bit more active with my social life. IISA-klab bdak2 Indonesia- ade macam2 things planned out and since I'm the secretary..I have to be active AND I think I might change few things...for example, devote one day for a Malaysian Day :P And, I intend to be an active member of Outcrop Club too. Walaupon dah miss one activity hari tu iaitu Geopub..hah, time for some ethanol lerr (the way Megan put it).

Fine, lets not bore u anymore with my "amazing" first week....
n just skip to the pictures.
Ni pictures on the way to Canada. We flew from KL-NY-Toronto. And amik shuttle to London!

KLIA, as u might already know. Over skit ye baju tuh, siap dgn rantai!
Semua2 tuh baru tuh...
Boeing 777. This is one freaking huge aeroplane. 2 tingkat, I think this is the plane they usually use to fly to London, UK. NY plane is usually smaller than this. 1 tingkat je ...

First meal in the plane. Omelette with sausage.
Note: tu jam tangan baru
This is my breakfast. Sedap laa juga. Better than Izzy's Nasi Lemak. huhuhu

Nasi Lemak Izzy yang ok lerrr rase die... but cant beat my omelette!

Snack yang dimakan after baru bangun tido donggg

Gamba 2 Si comel. U know, we had one very similar picture we took in our first year.
That was on a flight to London....
Expected kann, kami takde keje lain on this 13 hours flight to Stockholm...

Makan lagi..Lunch this time. It's rice with steamed veggies and lemon fish
yang tak sedap! the lemon fish is a bit too sour for my liking
Makanan Izzy yang lagi sedap than mine.
cesss, chicken bbq with potatoes and veggies


Stockholm, Arlando International Airport. Love the floor... We stopped here for 1 hr 30 mins,
and the custom check semua went ok and not that long, so ok lahhh.

Object of attention here is the hot European guy at the back! hahaha, me and Izzy
are always on cute boys hunt :P J is always welcome to join.

Kasut kami pada hari itu. Dua2 pon baru!

Cincin2 kami pada hari itu. That ring on my ring finger was given to me by my late grandmom.
She bought it in Mekkah. Yang middle finger tu, cincin baru....ibu belikan

Chicken Sandwich with 2 jenis air. Satu susu and satu air best...
and it's not apple juice....

Got milk? hehe
somehow stewardess itu rase klakar that we asked for milk and she keeps bugging us with
"sedap ke susu tu?" weirdo...but i know kombinasi air yg dipilih sgt pelikkkk... boo hooo

Cheers, susu... and that's Miley Cyrus on the cover of Cleo...

Cheers, air sedap! dah nak habes dahhhh... Gile pointless dowh duduk dlm plane lama2

Air2 kami yang pelik pada hari tu....

Dinner yang sedap! Black peppe chicken with rice and steamed veggies

Newark Liberty Airport....yeah! kami dah smpai NY after 20 hours flight...rasa lapar lagi! so kami makan lahh di food court die yg best laa juge. ade kedai asian cafe ke ape, situ ade mamat malaysian keje...die tegur kami almost everytime kami di sana....(3 kali dah). ni pizza cheese sodap...
and kami habeskan makanan kami dgn air ini! share je :P
ini perlu cos kami nak stay up seluruh malam sebab takde orang plak nak jage beg.

Since we have to stay up the whole night, we decided to watch some TV shows, luckily, I have the first episode of the new season of OTH. best dong tgk...tak peduli pon pasang speaker kuat2. hehehe. NY airport ade ramai laa juge orang walaupon dah pagi2 buta. but still, barang kene jaga, now kann byk kess orang letak dadah dlm ur bag. and after that, we kinda just take a look at pictures and start to remisnisce...termasuklahh gamba2 kitorang first year dulu. we look kinda dorky back then. haha, but this year....kitorang ade misi yang sgt banyak. tp misi tu semua berthemakan "all out", so go figure!
SO by 4am, kami lapar balek! maka, kene laa sahur bagi yang berpuasa...
inilahh makanan kami.
geez thanks, we know that already :P

dalam ni bukan coffee dong.... :P

haaa, ni sahur saye. agak lame ye name perisa tuhh...
thought might try this one out cos of the dorky flavour.

hehehe....sedap laa gak mee cup nihh. dah lapar, semua pon makan...

waiting for my flight to YYZ (toronto)
Now that I'm back in London, I felt so relieved from all the travel I had to do just to get here. My jetlag this year was pretty bad. After 3 days, I still have jetlags...which is uncommon to me cos my jetlag is normally just 1 day. But it's ok, i just cherish myself with all the much needed sleep. Now pon dah bulan puasa. We have so many plans for this month. One of them pastinye pegi makan wonder sushi yang sedap. Ade laa gak some parties yang mcm nak attend cos kawan2 yang buat. Then dah nak raya.... nak buat open house. dah ajak dah few people...suruh mereka buat some room utk dtg london...hehehe.
pengumuman: kepada kanak2 petronas, elaun kite akan naik! haha. ni bukan fantasy, tp benar. saye pegi chat ngan en aznan hari tu. just that, bile elaun akan naik adelah ragu2 lagi tp die kate pretty soon lah. and saye fikir akan berlaku this january. tp janganlah korang pegi spend all ur money laks...just at the thought die akan naik...tunggu laa dah confirm aite!
k lahh, saye ni rase sgt macam nak shopping yang macam2. sebab duit summer yg banyak. saye ade mcm2 dlm wish list saye... nak tahu ape ke? hehe, saye pon rase nak ckp sbb mana tahu ade orang rase generous pas bace sini and nak belikan saye perkara itu, i will feel very happy bout that. saye mahu: seluar jeans baru, boots baru - mahu suede and flat, bootie from la senza, a lot of sleepwear yang kiut, sunnies baru, clutch lagi utk tambah dlm collection, and ape lagi ek....high heels yg ala2 gladiator-the newest trend yg any girl will fall for it. hari tu kan, nmpak satu budak western ni kat kedai buku, die pakai cardi with a fancy top and high waisted super short shorts, and paired that outfit with a gladiotar sandals AND an oversized handbag....lolz, i was laughing sikit2 dlm hati. alamak, ni semua hot new trends in one go. ape donng, take it easy laa sikit. And pls take note, high waisted pants/shorts/skirts/jeans are not for everyone... tp that's the nature here at Western, everybody nak pakai new trends tu, konon nak jadi trendsetter lerr tuh kat sini. I dont care pon, cos i enjoy ppl watching :) plus budak2 western kann hot, be it laki or perempuan. U might think I'm just full of myself dgn statement itu, tp dtg laa sendiri n tgk.... mmg ONLY IN UWO :)
k guys n girls, ciao dulu yerr...mcm nak buat groceries je nihh! nak gi pasar tau. first time ni nak gi pasar...and nak gi kedai cina skali...
