Attempting the stupid...

Yesterday being the 24th December, we decided to go out. Yes, me shasha and darwis (later joined by Kak D, Abg D and Nasir). We needed to get a headstart on the preparations for the Singapore Seminar. So we decided on Liat Towers Starbucks. Yes very stupid of us. Why did we even think of Orchard Rd on Christmas Eve?

So after wrapping up our work, we had dinner at Far East and were joined by Shasha's frens.

And the journey to the MRT station was complete and utter mayhem. Sprayed by a deluge of fake snow (snow in a can). We kept getting smothered by all the stupid asses who apparently wanted it to snow really badly in singapore. Go for a winter holiday then idiots! Don't mess up Orchard Road.

This wasnt my first brush with annoying holiday merrymakers.This was exactly wat happened in Bukit Bintang a year ago. I was sprayed incessantly by all those party streamers in a can.

I should have learnt from my mistake last year.

No more going out on the eve of Christmas and on the day of Christmas it self.Period

I'm probably going to be VERY EXTREMELY BUSY this whole semester. More involvement with MUIS. So u know what that means.

Don't miss me aight.

Snap, snap, snap...

That's how my Sunday went.

Snap went the camera and snap went my sandal. Yes. My Charles & Keith sandal i bought just a few months ago. What a bloody waste.


Kho and I wanted to go out and shoot some pics using our SLR's. *maklumlah kawan kiter tu tgh amek photojournalism so dier nak practice*

So we left quite early in the morning. Around 11am on a SUNDAY morning mind you.

We reached Bugis and i just had the urge to spend. So we went to Dorothy Perkins and i bought 2 lovely tops. No black this time round thank god. I'm sick of mourning oredi.

After that we jalan-jalan around Bugis Village but there wasn't much to see cos many shops were still closed. But we did get to see a humongous cat that looked a lot like a dog to me.

Then we walked all the way to Suntec.

We were already ravenous by that time so we headed to Burger King and had lunch. Super duper hungry.

We cleaned up that tray really fast.

Then walked some more to Esplanade.

Took pictures at the garden at the top of the esplanade. Pity the weather was lousy. It was all cloudy and stuff. Just hope the pics turn out well.

Walked over to the merlion.

Started to rain. Took out the umbrellas and proceeded on to fullerton hotel, thinking we could shoot some more pics at the tunnel/underpass near the old esplanade.

Then yours truly here tripped.

SNAP...went the front part of my sandal.

And it happened in front of a few people.

Embarassing but not so bad. At least i know that i wont be seeing those people ever again. haha.

So i had a throbbing foot and a broken sandal. Canceled our plans and hailed a cab. Apparently the cab driver saw me walking barefoot in the rain and had nice little chuckle.

Drove over to bugis junction.

Walked barefoot on ONE foot with the good sandal still on.

Looked around for a pair of sandals/slippers i could get cheap. Got a pair for $10

Good enough.

Paid then left.

Was so bloody tired. Reached home around 6.30pm.

Not to mention i was going back to kl that same night.

And yes. I just arrived at my dorm room at 6am.

And i have a class at EIGHT in the morning. So i cant go back to sleep. If not i will definitely miss the class. And i'd hate to get on Br. Mazlan's bad side.

Going to shower now.

Hope this stiff neck goes away soon.

Driving me nuts...

I think this is the first time in 2 yrs that i havent been able to do it.

Do what you say?


It just kills me that im not able to go back on thursdays.

Why the fuss?

Well, cmg back to singapore on a thursday means that i'll have a long weekend ahead of me. I mean who wouldn't want to have a long weekend? Everyone looks forward to it.

This semester im already a 3rd yr student -alhamdullillah- so i guess its time to make some sacrifices before graduation. I mean how long can i possibly avoid not having a friday class? Considering the fact that i come from a small department, the possibility of me gttg a friday class is high. I say sooner rather than later.

So i'll leave after my 8am class. At least I know im going back with good company. There's always a trade off.

On another note,

I miss my little Dika & Comel.

By the way, just want to say a little


My dearest Zak! Muacks! Love ya loads babe!

My up-stairs neighbour, classmate/coursemate, Nora!

Congrats on FINALLY turning 21!

*I. Feel. Ancient.*

Off to bed then, well not technically. After watching Moonson Wedding that is.

Home sweet home tomorrow.


Wednesday, December 14, 2005


Yes, been getting dreamless sleep which was really good. Refreshed and recharged myself over the weekend back at my kampung.

Helped with the gardening and the raking and the wheelbarrowing. I push a mean wheelbarrow. Haha.

Except for the fact that the water supply was cut off, everything else was gd. I mean who can resist grandma's good old cooking.

Nasi minyak was waiting for me when i arrived late friday afternoon.

Then on monday (which was a public holiday in Selangor) i spent it at my great-grandpa's place and had the best kampung meal in my life.

Just plain rice with tempoyak, petai and fried fish made my day.

The taste still lingers in my mouth. Yummy.

So it was back to school yesterday.

I thought it was a monday. so i brought along my psycholinguistics txt. So very der smangat. And so very der selenger. Buat berat bag je.

Classes started at 10am and went all the way till 5pm with only an hour for lunch and zuhur. Then at 5pm had to rush for a meeting. Tu lah...nak sangat masuk EXCO kan...haaaa rasaaakaaaannn.

Den off to dinner and watched IPAC (islamic performing arts something)...all the way to 11pm.

Was so knackered.

And today is another long day.

Hope all goes well.

42 more days to the 24th of Jan

Wish me luck!

My million little pieces...

"I don't want to be alone. I have never wanted to be alone. I fucking hate it. I hate that I have no one to talk to, I hate that I have no one to call, I hate that I have no one to hold my hand, hug me, tell me everything is going to be alright. I hate that I have no one to share my hopes and my dreams with, I hate that I no longer have any hopes or dreams, I hate that I have no one to hold on, tht I can find them again. I hate that when i scream, and I scream bloody murder, that I am screaming into emptiness. I hate that there is no one to hear my scream and that there is no one to help me learn how to stop screaming."
James Frey, a million little pieces, pg 79

Save for the part that i striked out, Frey just took the words right out of my mouth.
The most graphic novel/account I've ever read. And i just HAD to read all the gross bits while i was eating.
I have never been as emotionally involved with a book. Period.
And i'm not even done with it yet.
Thanks Kho for lending it to me even when you're not done with it.
My msg to all of you:

Go. Grab. The. Book.

5 random things...

Thank you so much eh Kho for tagging me ngan bende ni. *makes face* naseb lah ader internet connection dlm bilik sem ni. Rajin sket aku check blog aku. So i guess i have no excuse NOT to do this right?

So here goes...

5 Random/Weird Things About Me

1) I still have an imaginary friend *i know, it freaks me out too*

2) I have NEVER eaten a mangosteen in my life. Period.

3) Deep down, I still want to be an Egyptologist and spend all my time in Egypt.

4) I dig brainy guys

5) I LOVE ANCIENT HISTORY. 'nuff said.

I'm a kind soul so i won't tag anyone lah. Save you all the misery hehehehe...

UIA has got wireless connection! And im proud to be typing this from the comforts of my hostel room. Okaylah...i noe other people out there have got wireless connections long before i have. But to have it in the middle of an "ulu" place is something to take note of okay.

Im happy to report that the connection is quite fast and efficient as well. Paying as low as RM30 for a month's worth of internet usage. Not bad huh. I am so freakin' happy!!!

*ni macam kalau tak nak balik singapore pun tak kesah*


The first day of class went off well. Even though my class started at 8 in the morning. Yes. You heard me right. 8am. And i didnt have too much trouble waking up in the morning either. Thanks to the temp job i was holding for the past 2 weeks, it actually helped me train to wake up early. Actually about half an hour earlier than the preset time on my alarm. Your truly here woke up startled, thinking that my alarm didnt go off. And when i checked the clock, it was only 5.25am. So i just crawled back to bed. Got a little more shut eye and then woke up at 6plus to shower and do my morning prayers.

Class was scheduled to start at 8am and i was actually early! I was so damned proud of myself! By 7.25am i was all ready to head out the door. And not to mention i was the very FERST person to reach class. How about that hehehe....i guess im almost back to my normal self once again. I hope i can keep this up...

Even then, the day did have a little hiccup like i mentioned earlier. My class scheduled at eight didnt have the lecturer arriving on time. Which is very strange considering that the lecturer is a very punctual person. So Firah and I decided to go and see him in his office to ask him whether there was going to be class on wednesday or not. First time round he wasn't in his room. So later on i tried again. This time he was already on campus, in the writing lab.

Apparently he did go to class.

Only at a different time. Hehehehe...He was unfortunately greeted by an empty classroom cos his schedule was slated for a 9am class. Luckily i met him and told him of the slight change in his schedule. Hehehe...a misfortune for him but a fortunate event for us.


Arrived in Gombak at 4.30pm yesterday after a 7hour journey frm singapore. Yeah...its the longest bus -ride ever that i've had to take to get to campus. The pit stops and the congestions just made things worse. So yeah...i was exausted by the time i got to my room, hauling me with my luggage and stuff. The room is almost back in order and yours truly is simply knackered today after a hectic ferst day. Alhamdullillah, classes are in order and soon will be gttg guests from Mad. Aljunied and NUS Muslim Society.

Now that should keep me busy for the next couple of days.

p/s: if u can't get a hold of me on my msian mobile this weekend means that im away at my kampung.

thats all.

Guess what...

*dances around...twirling...skipping...humming to herself*

Guess who's got tickets to watch BSB live in concert.





i. shall. dream. of. kevin richardson. from. tonight. onwards. till. the. concert.

some people might know that i fancied the pants off of this guy that i even had an email add with his name at the back. which is defunct by the way.

my parents made fun of me for months...

they said: "berangan lah tu nak kawen ngan mat salleh"

occasionally they still laff at me about it.

they still haven't lived it down


somehow my dreams have been granted!

i can't believe it.

BSB here i come!!!!!!


Wednesday, November 30, 2005

Another day...

I really like manning the phone lines. For some strange absurd reason.

I think im gonna miss it here when i end on friday. So sad...

countdown counter: 3 days till i go back

this is so depressing...

but i miss my teej.

she is my sanity when im there...and vice versa.

actually im more excited about seeing her than going back to class...

okay enough ranting and raving...i have to get back to work...


Tuesday, November 29, 2005

That was refreshing...

after a long drought (esp from me when its the holidays) of non-blogging activity...

seriously, you should go online more often. then i can chat my time away. u made time go faster (thank god...cant wait for my headbanging session in the bus).

Pillow fights and mistaken identities. Geez...i had to chuckle quietly at my desk...or risk the employers of this fine company to think that im a nutcase.

Dun worry...i don't think i'll mistake you for someone...uniquely achit...heheheheeee


On another note. Exam results out oredi.

A bit disappointed with the outcome. Especially for journalism.

I. am. so. not. happy. with. the. grade. given. to. me.

*sembarang lah this lecturer. he's so vague about everything...gonna appeal for rechecking*

Other than that...i am happy to say i got the A i wanted for leadership & management. Thank you so much guys! I really had fun working on the same team! Hope you're all as pleased about the outcome as i am.

i also have to say all that hard studying for fiqh sirah paid off...managed to pull off a B (as compared to all the C's i've gotten for all the other IRK subjs) very grateful. I don't think i really had a problem with the subject. Its prolly becos i had a deep interest in the subj.

*once a history freak always a history freak*


and the countdown begins...

4 more days till i return to KL.

the reluctant vagabond once more, i become...

*although there is the floorball camp to look forward to. Bukit Jalil Sports School here i come!*


Monday, November 28, 2005

I never knew...

-take note: this entry might not be suitable to those under 20-

that anyone in a blue jumper + white hardhat could look so sexy *grrrrrrr*

Neither did i know that someone who is so shy manages to make it so attractive

Not only that,

he's oblivious about it too. *which makes it all the more attractive*

I like men working with heavy machinery...*sighs*

nampak sangat boring kat kerja....


Friday, November 25, 2005

And that's the way it goes...

Talked to one of my younger cousins yday to ask abt his PSLE results. Alhamdullillah, he did well. So did my other cuz.

-semua dah selamat dah, amin-

And yes monkey's unkle; that's my dad...granted that he was pretty pooped at the time we were taking that picture. Dat's why he looked like, sembarang like that, thus displaying his happy belly.

*you know him eh? *

Was so tired last night that i slept at 11pm (or thereabouts lah). The earliest i've slept this whole holiday period. Work pretty much saps a lot of my energy, even if im not doing much. But come month end i 'll probably be quite bz.

Its confirmed. Results will come out on the 28th Nov.2005 InsyaAllah. I wish you guys all the best.

Probably won't be much updates during the weekend cos of the open house and jalan raya saturday and sunday respectively.

Till then.


Thursday, November 24, 2005

And so i thought...

I had to miss classes just to go to that Backstreet Boys concert. I...mean not that i minded anyway.

But what luck! The concert falls in the week that i have my inter-semestral vacation! Brilliant news! I am so ecstatic!

Thank you to the Almighty who seems to have been very generous to me lately.

*silent prayer*

-note to self: study extra hard for the mid-terms and then boogie down to the BSB! yipeee!-

By the way, my parents still don't know.

I can't afford the VIP seats unfortunately *unless of course some kind soul decides to sponsor me or i come into a very large inheritance* cos it will burn a hole in my almost empty pockets (SGD250!!! SIAPA NAK LAYAN!?)

Anyway, I'll settle for SGD160 seats. Not so bad. Thank God for the temp job im holding now. Alhamdullillah.


Wednesday, November 23, 2005

Bear with me...

yours truly

need i say more?

*with Usama and Uthman*

thanks for joining us =D
gerls, feel free to take ur pick hehehhe

all the ladies in the house plus little Shafiq!

okaylah nanti dpt lagik i update k?

bersabarlah korang semua...


Tuesday, November 22, 2005

To watch out for...

24th January 2006...the date that i've waited for a whole decade! The Backstreet Boys are FINALLY coming to town!

I can already feel myself hyperventilating. I am going. Thats it. I won't take no for an answer. I am going to Suntec Convention Hall to watch them live! Front row. Nothing less.

I remember pleading and crying to my parents to let me go to the midnight album launch of Millenium. My mother said yes; on the condition that I will not be able to see them if they ever come to singapore and perform live in concert.

I kept true to that promise and ended up NOT going to the album launch *which i sobbed dearly about for the next few weeks*

Now that the day is finally here, I will not give up this chance of a lifetime.

Call me a groupie or a fanatic; I DON'T CARE!

10 years. I thought the day would never come. I can't believe i've actually waited a whole decade. But then again, I'm so glad i waited!!!

*tak sia-sia aku simpan itu BSB posters berfile-file, sampai berhabuk!*


Now that's what Backstreet's Back truly means.


I sit here in front of my brand new pc at werk (well i say new cos its been upgraded frm the previous model when i used to work here) with Cameron Diaz looking at me. Its so unnerving to have her stare at me.

Relax. Its just a cardboard version of Ms. Diaz. S**********r decided to have a cut out of her to promote the upcoming DnD. Apparently its Espionage Nite. Wonder what people will go dressed up like...

Another cold blustery day in singapore...called ms tijah up last night and she safely arrived in KL last night with her sis, Bibi, in tow. I miss her dearly...wonder what she'll be up to when her sis is busy with orientations and stuff.

I had so many things to write about last night but it all went -poof-

Oh now i remember.

i just have to get this out. Apparently this instituition has been a breeding ground for cuties

-well the kinds i like anyway-

tinggi, besar and hemsem...esp those born in 1984. Hari tu jalan raya pas tu nampak this one guy...cair beb, cair! It was eye candy galore. I don't think i could have taken my eyes off of him the whole time.

*dream on suckerrr*

wait till i get thorpie on my lap. I will be the happiest woman alive i tell u.

Taufiq insinuated that its time for me to get a boyfriend...let me get my head screwed on straight then u go find me one lah k Fiq?

Bhavie's coming hoooommmmeeeee! She' s been gone in Aussie for far too long. I want to see her this weekend...she'd better come to the open house i did specially for her.

Oh darn, there's a meeting tomorrow and then have to go all the way to tampines to see my darling kak ct. tomorrow i promise u kak ct we take picture many-many becos i have officially hijacked the digicam.

On the agenda today, gi rumah Kak D and finally take a look at her bersanding pics. I think its taken me 4 months to just make the effort to go to her place. If not for Raya then I don't think I'd be able to look at her gorgeous pics.

2nd day of Puasa ganti plus puasa 6. InsyaAllah takder halangan untuk menjalankan puasa hari ni...amin.

To my gerlfrens: See ya this weekend! *hums: tak tahan lagiii*...

To those still slaving over their exams, keep with it. It's gonna be over in just a bit! All the best!

Just browsing around...

and stumbled upon this. Now this suddenly helps to me resolve the "pool" question. Dontcha think munkeys unkle?

You Are 70% Boyish and 30% Girlish

You are pretty evenly split down the middle - a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.
You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.
How Boyish or Girlish Are You?

A spanking brand-new Fujitsu Lifebook!
Shall i name her? *gee i've already assigned a gender to it already -sheesh-*

Not to mention that I got it at a real bargain! Wheeeeeeeeee! Now that's what families are for i tell ya.

Thank you so much Cik Wan (of course i couldnt have worked out the bargain with my mom. And she even generously offered to pay half! Alhamdullillah)


Friday, November 18, 2005

It's getting really boring around here...

I've been offered a job at my old workplace. Yes. The thought of making money for this next 2 weeks just brings tears to my eyes.

Love it. And the pay's not bad either. Travelling expenses covered pretty much. The only thing deducted will be for CPF which isn't at all bad is it? Wheeee...things are really looking up somehow.

I hope this good streak continues all the way into the 2nd semester.

Which reminds me, EXAM RESULTS are friggin' around the corner!

It's worse thinking about the results than taking the exam.

Saw my CA marks. Not so bad. But the only results that have been released for CA have been my core modules. None from my minor modules have come up on the screen. Worrying big time for Fiqh Sirah and Method's Of Da'wah.

At least I have my temp job to tide my anxiety over. Thank Goodness.

The ELITES i hope won't make bog me down with work. Still wondering how i'm going to make it through the next semester with new responsiblities, although i know that it will look pretty darn good in my CV.

I miss my Tijah. Haiz...she's changed her Bruneian number so I can't even sms her. Truly miss her. Missing the times we bitch about stuff in our room.

Oi! When you coming back to singapore for a visit!? Think of the endless shopping!

Well, gtg now. Getting pretty bored now. And tomorrow...I resume jalan raya AGAIN! With my family of course. This is so tiring. And these houses i cannot miss. They're my aunts and uncles! Cannot miss! Wait tak dpt duit raya! Hehehehe...

Somehow...its very true...
How You Are In Love

You take a while to fall in love with someone. Trust takes time.

You tend to give more than take in relationships.

You tend to get very attached when you're with someone. You want to see your love all the time.

You love your partner unconditionally and don't try to make them change.

You stay in love for a long time, even if you aren't loved back. When you fall, you fall hard.

Your Birthdate: April 8

Watch out Donald Trump! You've got a head for business and money.You'll make it rich some day, even if you haven't figured out how yet.A supreme individualist, you shouldn't get stuck in a corporate job.Instead, make your own way - so that you can be the boss.

Your strength: Your undying determination
Your weakness: You require an opulent lifestyle
Your power color: Plum
Your power symbol: Dollar sign *kachingggg*
Your power month: August

Like the title reads...yesterday i went on my rounds of visiting...with my uni mates that is. And i still haven't gone to the seniors houses yet. gttg a headache just thinking about it.

We started off early in the morning...9 friggin' in the morning okay! So that meant that I had to get up at least 2 hours in advance to shower and primp in order to get to the meeting point in time. Sheesh...i didn't even get ready at 7am on the ferst day.

But the event was well organized thanks to the people in charge
*thanks aisyah spec, shasha and hafiz - you guys made it all worthwhile!*

We got to the ferst house bright and early at ard 9.30am in cck...had breakfast...on the menu, mee hoon goreng, fishball in sambal, fried chicken wings, epok-epok and samosa...yum...sedaaapppp you all!

Next area we hit was woodlands...makan again! Wah wah...on the menu: mee hoon goreng. Next house, makan again. This time it was nuggets and fries! Then off we went to hougang for more fries!

Thank god for the change in menu to fries cos the next house, you guessed it...mee hoon awaited us in bedok reservoir.

*dah plak itu lift accepted a maximum of 5 people only. lift dah nazak lah katakan hhehehehe*

after bedok, we went to pasir ris to zaleha's house for mee siam...(mee hoon berkuah *mee hoon lagi*)

and then at the next 3 houses we were greeted by mee siam, mee hoon and mee hoon *all in order of visit*

Pengsaaaaannnn...luckily at the last house we were treated to some dessert of ice-cream and ferrero rochers galore
So after much gorging on mee hoon, i have decided to go on a break of mee hoon for the next month or so. I will go sick at the sight of mee hoon if i ever come across it again in the next few weeks
Peekchures will have to wait 'cos i didn't have my digicam with me courtesy of my sis *bluek*
So its all down to the rest lah for photos.
Patience is advised.

p/s: abg sofian has the most gorgeous and adorable looking niece eva! And the pictures don't do her an ounce of justice at all. i want to keep her all to myself!!!

To be continued...

Have you ever felt...

There are some days you just wished that God punished you sooner rather than later.

Then there are days that you just wish someone would give a damn.

Other times you just want the floor to open up beneath you and swallow you whole.

And then of course there are moments that you want to tear someone's head/body apart and start eating his/her innards.

Sometimes you want God to answer your prayers (very very badly)

And then you wished that someone could hold you and tell you everything's gonna turn out alright.

Today i'm all of the above.

*How to jalan raya in peace like this?*

To be continued...

Thursday, November 10, 2005


I've noticed that a lot of people are taking a loooooonnnngggg time to get back into their blogging modes.

Korang tak habes beraya lagi ke?

Okay, granted that some people are bz with exams but what happened to the rest?

On my current "miss list":

1)Hartijah or affectionately known as TEEJ(my longtime roomie)

2)my two other roomies

3)the ability to call and make plans with my gerls (not possible since many are in EXAM mode...pfft)

4)strangely enough i miss my hang out spot in campus.

5)and last but not least, boy watching in school *cue dreamy sigh*

Haven't been out much these past few days.Not even raya-ing with my friends. Jalan raya with my gerlfrens postponed till the 26th or 27th (after all their exams) so the one thing to look forward to is the jalan raya which will resume this weekend.

*crosses fingers that my family will make our way to my uncle's place so i can take a look at the laptop that i was promised...yayness*

A few invites this weekend...don't know whether i'll be able to make it or not...

By the way, have you people noticed the trailer for that new Channel 5 drama entitled 'Lifeline'?

What is it with Gurmit Singh that makes it so wrong for him to be in that show? I think a haircut is not gonna help people...

Hums *put the lime in the Coke u nut...*

Annoying but somehow catchy...thanks to the little annoying little brat that i love.

And my favourite diamond...the one in the Soo Kee advert...that is one hell of a ROCK...can i have one? pWeeety please?


Tuesday, November 08, 2005

I am sick of this!

I've tried twice -unsucessfully might i add- at adding the pics to my blog.

The first time, the pc hung up on me...

The second time...i deleted it ALL by accident!!!

It is very frustrating.

I am not in the mood to upload it again. I'll just do it tomorrow or the day after that...

Was so excited to post them up...but I'll let u have a sneak peak.

At least that's one pic up...many many more to patient k?


Wednesday, November 02, 2005

Home at last...

Reached home yesterday morning at 5am...sahur by myself cos all my other family members dah malas nak bangun just chugged a glass of cold water and switched on the pc...hehehhe...revengeeeee!

so after subuh, i went to bed and woke up at 12nn! Got the sleep that i wanted to recharge my overused batteries. After that mom decided to go out. Biler kiter tanyer, she said she didn't know where she was heading to but she just wanted to get out of the house...ahakz...tht's the last thing i'd expected my mom to say.

So we headed to... GEYLANG! At last, finally got to go even though its the end of ramadhan...kinda packed...really hot weather and i could feel myself wilting in the sun.

Got some raya essentials, tudung's galore coutesy of mum...and also a new abaya...wheeeeeee...sukaaaaaa! And of course not forgetting the dengdeng! Nice, sweet and juicy...i want moooorrrreeee!

So half the floor's been mopped, need to go do the other half...then more chores await...gotta geta move on now.

Eid Mubarak to all!

All's Not Well...

This year alone i've had diarrheoa thrice...the first putting me out for almost one week. The second time was last week. The Singapore students assoc. ordered food from one of the hostels which do catering and their food gave many of us stomach pains and diarrheoa. The third time being today. My energy is wiped out. I'm so dehydrated and my stomach still makes funny noises and it hurts. I'm suspecting it was the nasi kandar i had yesterday for iftar.

Other than that, my exams will commence on friday. And i am nowhere near prepared. I'm so scared shitless. 2 novels that i haven't had time to finish and victorian poets. Why of all things victorian poets? I am so not prepared!!!

On a lighter note, my leadership and management exam went very well. I was so pleased and chuffed by the efforts made by all the other team members. I've never enjoyed working in a group until i met them. They are certainly a cut above the rest. THANK YOU GUYS for making the experience worthwhile!

We entered the room all jittery and nervous wrecks. Who wouldn't when you have to present a proposal to a panel of 5 individuals? Our presentation went rather smoothly. Me, of all people had to do the introduction. I was sooo nervous i could feel my stomach turning somersaults. When I started off, i was a bit shaky but soon after i regained my composure and i felt better afterwards(once i finished, my ears were burning!).

Everyone did great despite their nervousness. And the best part was when my groupmate Yusuf tied up all the strings with the conclusion. He did it very beautifully. And when the panel started off with their comments, we were all grinning like fools.

They were simply blown away by the visual aids, even though it was just mahjong paper (cos no power point presentations are allowed for some reason)and they outrightly said that our proposal was very good and much better compared to the other 2 groups. I was beaming on the inside! They said we did very well with the presentation and they were so impressed with our effort especially with all the visual aids. Our group really deserved it. We all put in a lot of effort and I will be surprised if all of us don't do well.

Missing my group mates already (not to mention they're not even from my faculty. all of them are engineering students with me as the odd one out)!

Meanwhile, I'm missing all things singapore. The dengdeng, the takoyaki, the air kathira and the all the other sedap foods! Suddenly im having a hankering for kachang phool and laksa singapore! Less than 2 weeks to go!!! And less than 2 days to shop at Geylang!

And yes Taufiq sorry i missed out on the greetings the previous two posts, so here goes:

Thanks for being one of my bestest friends ever. Almost a year has passed and i'm truly blessed by your friendship. Must go jalan² with me to Geylang when i get back k?! And don't buih!

p/s: All the best for you exams dude!

With that,

Breaking my own word

Thought u wouldn't be seeing me anymore rite? Ahakz...just wanted to share my selenger moment...

Last week, i was told that my Leadership and Management grp wanted to meet on monday at 8pm in the library.

I was nowhere near the point of ready at 8.35pm since i got so worked up with the assignment at hand. Speedily dressed, and got my bum at the library by 9.10pm.

I got a shock when there wasn't a soul in the pre-determined room we agreed to meet in.

Thinking i was late, i called up one of my grpmates and got diverted to the voicemail (i hate voicemails!). Not just one grp member but two!

So i thought i'd spend some time catching up with emails and blogging,and then calling my members up only after terawih.

When i called, imagine the surprise when my grpmate said:


And no one had the courtesy to even sms me that today's meeting had been cancelled.

If i knew i wouldn't have left the room!!! Aaaarrrgghhhh!

I foresee that this week is going to be a long and trying one.

Oh Allah give me strength!

Ramadhan '05

I feel that its been so long since i've last written. I hope that i do get to satisfy my fellow blog readers.

This is my ferst Ramadhan (7/8 of it) being spent away from home. It feels so strange not to be home to break fast with your family and sahur with them. I suspect im going to be homesick for quite some time (even though i've made my way back to singapore almost every other week the whole of this semester).

Some people have been scarce in my life lately...very scarce. Geez i dun even noe why i bother sometimes.

One down, another assignment and presentation to go through. And this saturday (or sunday) im going to have to sit for my very ferst exam! Aaaaaaccckkkkk! I'm so stressed right now. I can't even think straight. I even had a hard time falling asleep on the bus last night. Which is VERY RARE. I'd normally take less than 10 min to fall asleep on that uncomfortable chair. Felt so tired today...(walaupun tak berpuasa khekhekehkehkeh)

Weather was unbearably HOT! And i had to make my way down to the nearest money changer (cos mother dearest didnt change the money for me like she usually does, and by the time i left the house, all the money changers were closed!) which is abt 20mins away by bus. And i had to walk for abt 5 mins in the scorching hot sun in my black outfit. Yes, smart rite? *smacks head* should have grabbed something else out of my cupboard.

Spent the whole of saturday doing my phonetics assignment all the way till sahur (not a wink of sleep!) and then i find out that almost all the computers here on campus are not "phonetically friendly". All my IPA symbols got wiped out when i transferred them to another computer! Arrrgghhhh! It sent me into a little tizzy late this afternoon. Had to run back and forth from one lab to another, while i was supposed to be in a class.

Finally solved it by editing all my hard work on my roomie's laptop and printing it direct from there. Once it was printed, i realised something...I FORGOT TO EDIT THE SYMBOLS ON THE COVER PAGE! So now they're all the wingding, and dingbats and watnot forms...uuurggghhhhh! Tulah pandai sangat kan!

I had better start my revision this week. By hook or by crook!

And i just realised that i have only 2 days to go to Geylang once i get back from KL!!! And i havent bought shoes OR a bag to match my outfits! Aaaaccckk!!! Disaster...

Tak sabar lah nak Rayaaaaa! Cepat lah sket! Hehehehehe....

Which reminds me, i'd better go book my tix for Raya...nanti habes menangis lah aku plak...

Oklah...nothing much more for me to write...although i do noe that there are probably lots more in my brain...just can't seem to get it out now...

Well when i do have the time then i will InsyaAllah write. Till then, assalamualaikum.

To my peeps: Zak, shereen, azimah (happy studying and all the best for your remaining tests! wish me luck!)

To shahidah: lady where are u? havent seen you online in quite a long while!

To some new peeps i've made in the blogging scene: Kak Crab and Crab Junior (thanks for dropping by! will add both of u to my blog roll soon!) and to Kak Rouge(hang in there, takmo sedih2 when hubby isn't around k? smile always!)

To Linda NJ: Miss pls hor, Come down to KL in december! Slmt mugging tuk tests and etc etc...

To the rest: Happy Fasting! Drink lots of water and remember to get your Ramadhan's worth cos you might not noe when your last one will be. May Allah S.W.T. guide us all and keep us safe! Ramadhan Mubarak once again!

I hope i've covered all the bases, if i haven't, sorry!

Till the next post.

Rasa cam this week asyik kena bubble je.

First, biler budak2 Indonesia ngan Brunei. Kata nak main futsal. Last minute batalkan. Takut ke per?

Pas tu hari ni plak.

Grp member kata nak email some documents for Leadership & Management. Tunggu peh tunggu tak sampai2 lagik.

Abeh lagi satu plak...

Dek tu kata nak hantar all the addresses. Takder pun!!!

Eeeeeee sakit hati tau!

I can't do my work if things keep stalling. I'm already under pressure from higher powers...arrrgghhhhhh!

Deadlines, deadlines and more deadlines. I am really going beserk.

I think its about time i announced my month long hiatus frm blogging. Not forever. I dun think i can stay away from my blog more than that.

Exams are on from October 20th till the end of the month. Bummer.

So this will be the last week im gonna be here in singapore. Gonna be in KL for the rest of the month and most of Ramadhan.

Anyways, Ramadhan Mubarak to all. May you have a fruitful fasting month this yr. Amin.

Lectures, classes & more assignments...

Its the final lap to this semester. I have roughly about 3 weeks (or probably even less) before my exams hit me like a type 4 hurricane.

Slides for next presentation are all ready. I managed to finish it all up by last night. In an hour. Immediately after i came back from my evening tuition class. I also have no idea how i managed to pull it off so fast. I guess i work under pressure better than i expected.

2 more pending assignments and 2 more presentations PLUS 2 tests, The dreaded number two again.

Tonight is the dreaded futsal match between the Singaporean Students Assocn. against the Brunei, Thailand and Indonesian student societies. I am a wreck. The Indonesian gerls are combining with some other International students and that's what's worrying me to the max. There is no second keeper. That means that I'm the only keeper throughout the 2 matches. I am so not looking forward to it.

Other things aside, me and xxxxxx are getting on pretty well. I was surprised when he wanted to go out with my friends during our annual jalan raya. Still baffled. Or am i the one getting ahead of myself. I really don't want to get myself worked up for something that might not happen. Really. I've had to much to deal with this semester lah. Cannot tahan oredi. I will turn into a basket case after this semester i tell you.

There is this tiny glimer hope still burning for xxxxxx. Would love it to see it go somewhere. But i doubt he'd end up anywhere near the pool though.

Oh, and did i mention i managed to register for my classes next semester VERY successfully? Alhamdullillah! I was really worked up on the fact that i might not have gotten the classes i wanted on Plan A. But everything worked out! Pretty pleased with myself! So gerls, you guys have me on fridays again! Hehehehe....i still managed to evade friday classes and start in the afternoon for my monday and wednesday classes. So happy about that!

Looking back at this semester, i'd say it would have to be one of the most challenging semesters i've had academically, socially, as well as mentally. I think i've written in my diary more than i have in the last few semesters combined. I might also be tempted to go see my guidance counsellor if i can't take the pressures. But the healthy relationship i have with Allah has definitely helped me a lot.

Which brings me to the coming month of Ramadhan! I can't wait! Although most of it will be spent sitting for the exams. But i know that i will manage. InsyaAllah. Really looking forward to performing the terawih with my sch peeps! And it sure is gonna be sad since Kak CT isn't at IIU anymore. *really miss you!*

And lets hope xxxxxx asks me out to iftar with him! Khrkhrkhrkhr

He truly lights up my Life

Starting to Worry?

This is a quote i got from someone's blogpost. A lady nonetheless. On some things she wants to pass to her daughter.

"Study hard and do well in your education...but no need to go until PHD. Wait too educated not easy to find man. If you end up a spinster I lagi susah."

Starting to wonder if it rings true.

Always wanted to become a doctor (the medical kind). Now since that it kinda impossible at this point in my life, i actually thought of getting a doctorate in philosophy(in linguistics)...

*ponders hard*

The stars were all aligned in a pretty row...

Yesterday saw me going out wif taufiq (at last!) after about 3 cancellations and rain checks...but it was well worth it! *pastes a silly grin on my face*

We had made plans the night before and as i waited, and waited and waited and waited most of my afternoon for mr chua's call to confirm our no avail. I was almost willing the phone to ring hehehe...

Finally mr no-show did call only at 5.20pm. After making panicked plans i decided to meet him at plaza singapura so that we could catch Brothers Grimm the 6.50pm show. By the time i boarded the train it was already 6.30pm and there was no way that we were going to make it.

So we just decided on eating at Liang Seah St. yummy...

Parking was somehow easy to hassle...which was gd! Considering cirque du soleil were performing nearby. After dinner, we hurriedly made the decision to go catch Cinderella Man at Great World Plaza at 9.15pm.

The moment we got into the cinema to get tickets, this malay lady frm hsbc approached us and gave us FREE tix to watch the movie heheheh...apparently hsbc was having some movie screening for members and some people were unable to make it. So we basically saved $19! Hehehe....dpt makan free lagi you!

I was so happy and so was mr chua...*smiles*. He said it must have been me bringing all the gd fortune khrkrhkrhkrh...

Even the movie wasn't a disappointment! (although i don't really fancy russell crowe cos somehow his acting stinks in most of his movies lah, then again i'm partial to other actors). Its probably one of the best roles his taken on. I still think he stank up Gladiator.

He was extremely brilliant in portraying the character of James J. Braddock, complete wif the 'Nuuu York' accent. Plotwise, its nothing you've never seen before. Basically its all about overcoming the odds especially in the wake of the Depression (movie was set in 1930s).

Like the title says, its a cinderella story. Making a comeback and all that. But i'll leave you all to watch the movie yourselves k? Won't want to spoil it for you. And i really urge you to watch it!

Ratings: 4/5

And you'll never go wrong with Renee Zelwegger as a member of the cast. Watch out for next year's Oscars. They'll be a contender for sure!

Where has everyone else gone?

Back to KL i suppose. Leaving me here all alone to fend for myself (takderrrlah sangat!)

I simply can't stand it anymore. Everybody else's problems end up becoming my problem.Why?

'Cos some people (aka "A") like to piss the hell out of another person (aka "B") and then "B" takes it out on me.I'm pretty pissed about that.

And then its when someone else's responsibility becomes mine because they simply don't feel like doing it.

" What? The whole world revolves around you issit!?"

And then the best part is, when that person doesn't do it then i automatically become the person to do it. It really annoys me. I hardly get thanks for anything. Irks the hell out of me.

And of course there's exhibit "C" who (also like "A") likes to make me lose my temper.

And if next week, anyone wants to take a shot at me better be wary cos I'll just take the crap outta you!

And really,i can't see why/how anyone is going to get into the pool. Trust me on that.

A total of 7 hours...

That's the number of hours i spent in KL on monday.


You read it correctly.Its not a hoax. Believe me.

I went back to KL as per normal on sunday night. Just like every other sunday night of this semester. Knew before hand that there wasn't any water being supplied to my campus. It's happened before so I didn't think anything of it. -Nothing serious- or so i thought...

I reached campus at around 4.30am in the morning. Standard arrival time. And i had to pee. Damn. And there was no water! Couldn't hold it.

People who noe me well should know that i really have a weak bladder. I can still remember the nickname given to me 'toilet queen' if im not mistaken.

So i just went to the loo. At least it didn't smell as bad as i imagined it to be. Used a little bit of someone else's water (pls forgive me!) and that was the end of that. went to bed after that at around 5am

I don't have a morning class and only start my monday classes at 3.30pm so i sleep through most of the morning till 9am at least. Only yesterday was a bit different.

I was awakened by an announcement made on the PA system. i distinctively heard the lady saying that wasn't going to be any class frm 1pm onwards till wednesday. Ahakz...I was immediately plastered with a smile on my sleepy face and guess wat!?

I don't have to sit for my phonetics test this week!!! Yipeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!

I get to at least buy some more time yahoooooooooooo.....i think this has been one of the best 2 weeks ever this whole semester.

So i decided to go back (yeah wat else do i do right?) to singapore. wahakz. aint that a surprise? so i took the 2.30pm bus back home i practically just slept when i was in KL. that's all. wat a laugh. its been a really hilarious week so far. lets hope they extend the closure for the rest of the week. (crosses fingers)

Now i shall go email a lecturer about postponing my e. lit one test to next week. And now i actually get to buy a whole week's worth of presentation time! Yahooooooo....

Hope Prof. Syed Nasir will be nice. I'm sure he is.


Thursday, September 08, 2005


Could i please have this? Pwetty pweeeeezzzzeeeeee????

It just looks so gorgeous! Haiz...this would beat Nasir's metallic green mini i-pod ANY day!

Counting the seconds...

Lazy Weekend

I have been officially bumming since yday. Managed to do a little light reading after a really uncomfortable journey back from KL late thursday night.

Lazing, reading...a nice change. I even went back home immediately after the math class i was tutoring. Changed into a comfy pair of pants and my ever-nostalgic JC orientation shirt (of which i have 5!) and went straight to bed.

I was so pooped.

Woke up feeling really happy and was laughing my head off when my sis answered (or tried to answer) her hp.

After abt 3-5 rings, my sister proceeded to say "HELLO", when she hadn't in fact even picked up her phone yet. Hahahahahhaha. She was so cold out from her nap she didn't even realise it. It was so blaardy farny...and im still in stitches after her silly little antic.

On another note, i can't believe some people are so selfish and so ungrateful after what i thought i did seemed like a favour to them. But noooooooo, they think that im trying to wreck them. Oh please that is so juvenile. Been there done that (and i am so not proud of what i did). If i were being really mean i wouldn't even have told them in the first place.

And btw if you-know-who-you-are-and-you're-reading-this:

I am doing this to satisfy my own curiousity and im only in search of the truth. In no way have i been asked to approach you by any group of individuals. I only seek the truth and like you im just sick of hearing what i've heard. And there you go blowing your top off cos u think im saying salacious things abt you. Well even if i did, I DID IT IN YOUR FACE!

And i don't understand why some people have got to be so high & mighty thinking that people should worship the ground they walk on. Have you people heard of respect begetting respect??? (nothing to do with the above comments)

And btw, this is my blog so i am entitled this little space on the web to just rant whatever bits in my mind that seem to be bothering me. Its called freedom of speech.So live with it. Not happy. You shldn't even have bothered coming here. So go scram.


Tuesday, August 30, 2005

How do i do this?

I constantly never fail to amaze myself with the kind of predicaments that i usually get mysef into. It really does.

Sometimes doing the right thing suddenly seems wrong and then you feel that you should have shut up from the very beginning.

See, sometimes doing the right thing also makes you feel so guilty and so bad.

Well then, i'll stop moping now.

I can't believe Huda's getting engaged in less than a months's time! I'm excited and happy for her to see her finally settling.

Spiderman, wherefore art thou spiderman?

Arrggghhhh, im simply stressed out and really driving myself up the wall with small and inane subjects.

Havent even had a decent holiday.

Let's hope i'll get to see the Blue Mosque next year.


Friday, August 26, 2005


We left, we boarded the bus and we arrived.

Thats the usual summary i guess.

But yesterday was better.
Left with the Duchess and kakak Twins.

We talked and talked and talked till our heavy eyelids could not hold on no more.

Fast asleep all the way frm Kajang (i think) to Yong Peng. Too much partying this week. Ummatic Week has always been a blast but sure as hell takes up too much energy.

When we awoke, we filled our empty stomachs and chatted...-me and the Duchess-...

The 'angau' period is still looming around. Yes i now noe i shouldn't be looking for my knight and his white charger but wait for Spiderman.
I doubt if i ever will see him again.

Suddenly im motivated to save moolah to head down to Egypt next yr.


The CoMoRoS dudes rawked the still chanting that song repetitively in my head. Ouh and this time round i have plenty more pics to share from ummatic week.
Nasir enjoying the 5 mins of fame as pengantin

Shiok Sendiri.

Have you ever gotten the feeling that someone was talking about you in their blog.

I bet at least 70% of you have. and i don't mean being spoken about on the blog with your name displayed for all the world to see okay.

i am probably losing it as it write this all down right now. how can he possibly have been writing about me? i must be crazy. it was just THAT part in his blog. so insignificant.

so why the hell am i making such a big deal out of it?

cos he's brainy, good-looking,plus he's very much grounded in religion (i loike!), loves literature (better yet!) and he's back home for his hols.and he can go on about literature for hours. trust me.

there are not many guys in the world like that okayyyyy

the skies seem sunny now but the winds might just change, making "his gold complexion dimm'd".

and it was just that one saturday that i wished i'd bump into someone i know...but to no avail. i had to go round the whole of bugis/bras basah and kacau daun nyer si azimahandmukmin.

all this crap is getting me down.

Prince Charming sesat on his white charger i guess heheheh.


Saturday, August 20, 2005


I've had the busiest of weeks so far in my two yrs in Uni...its kinda putting a toll on my SOCIAL life...crap...


today i got to see lots of eye candy hehehehe...from near and far.

but there has been a guy thats been drifting in and out of my conciousness. and recently he came back.

i tried to keep it in. but it refused to stay put. i dunno why. its just that charisma of his.

i dun even noe why i even bother thinking abt him.

its that unnattainable.

On a lighter note. THE HAZE HAS GONE!

Lets hope it stays that way. Nice and clean fresh air...just the way i like it.


Saturday, August 13, 2005

Cough, sputter, cough, cough...

I probably inhaled about a year's worth of carbon dioxide. Swirls of black clouds hung heavy and mind you, it wasn't rain clouds. It was more like thick heavy smoke.

On thursday, the weather took a turn for the worse. Between 10am-12pm, the heavy smog just got thicker and thicker till the trees in the distance were not clearly visible. It was so bad that tonnes of people started buying masks. It was certainly very surreal. I never remembered singapore being swamped in that kind of smoke. It was much worse than wat Singapore experienced the last time.

Shortness of breath and tightness in the chest were what i experienced. Thank God i left KL that night. By then i had been sneezing since wednesday evening. Air quality was so bad but i was still at futsal training. God only knows why i went. Sheesh. But then again i did get my new jersey.

Its a beautiful orange and black colour. Think of the Dutch national side.Red and white were out of the options thanks to the indonesians that got first pick since they are our guests. So we've stuck with orange and black for the past 2 yrs.

Anyways, national day celebration at Kl was a blast. I was really happy that everything turned out right.Although the security guard almost spoiled the whole night. We almost got thrown out of the venue thanks the fact that they thought we were holding some illegal gathering. Sheesh. Of all the days. But the cake was really pretty. I'm still struggling with my new hp...cant seem to get it to cooperate with the pc

nice or not?

Anyway here are the before and after pics of the haze.

Before and...


Anyway, thanks to all me mates that made the National Day celebrations a real blast. I had a real great time working at breakneck speed with the rest of the EXCO members. But i truly think the people that deserve the greatest thanks would be to my Shash Kebab and Kho. Not forgetting the ever trusty Secretary, Seri.

Tak sabar next program lah pulak! Hehehehe....I really hope that the Treasure Hunt will go well! InsyaAllah!

Yeay besok payday! Sandals i must get. Shoesies??? Ugh...spend and spend and spend je!

Next up: 2 tests and an assignment to hand in!

Blardy crap.


Saturday, August 06, 2005

A Little Something Something...

Just something to get everyone

-well maybe not everyone but i noe i am-

into the mood...the thought of my first NDP away frm home as a overseas student...KL overseas also OKAY! (different country already)

I screwed up just now. When have I not ever screwed up? Haiz...

I'm really sorry to all the parties involved. Sorry to have disappointed all of you...

Have a great weekend.


Thursday, August 04, 2005

I. am. tired. and. cranky.

Thanks to the oh-so-much-un-needed-fire-drill-at-midnite-last-nite i am now running low on my batteries. I am tired. Very tired.

Was just about to sleep when this annoying alarm rang and mind you, i just ended class at 10pm, studied for abt an hour and then when i wanted to sleep at midnite, this stupid alarm went off. So all of the inhabitants of the hostel blocks had to wake up (in watever state you were in) grab something to cover the head and just head down to the quad.

It was an oh-not-very-funny-moment.

By the time i got back to the room after their briefings and the headcount it was already 12.45am. And i was already too excited by the developments earlier on to go immediately into a slumber. I think i dozed off close to 2am and i had a class just now at 8.30am. And its gonna be a long day today. My lids feel heavy. I think i know how Linda feels rite now.

P/s i think you're just a bit too excited being back in school...hehehe relax k? Ni baru start sem...nanti lama2 u bleh tanding ngan panda heheheeh

Last sunday i went out wif my girlies...celebrated sha's and shereen's bdae. Hehehe...we were like dysfunctional shopaholics gone amok at the sight of every single thing on sale. The lingerie was especially crazy...hullo? where to get 2 for $29???

And i tell you...Secret Recipe is fabulous...i love their brownie with ice-cream on top! It is so sinfully delicious...oh god, and the choc sauce they drizzle on top of the brownie...uuuummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm yum....provides orgasmic pleasure minus the sex of course....and you could go wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the whole day....

And of course the highlight of the day was when i got PUNK'D...and it was not even funny....yeah i can still hear all of u gerls sniggering at me...

Me and my little obsession wif Taufik Batisah went a little overboard till i didn't even know that i was being punk'd. It all started with shereen, azimah and sha who pasted all these excited expressions on their faces about taufik being at IMM that naturally i got all hyper.

- especially after all that choclatey goodness of a brownie-

And den these pple get me all excited and not expect me to do something...hullo...u mention taufik **** also i will get excited hhehehhee....pokoknyer kalau namanyer taufik and they reside in singpore sudah sah i will go a little NUTS.

At first i said no, cos i probably thought hey it was a hoax...but then my curiosity got the better of me and then i had to drag azimah and get her to show me where taufik was. prepared wif camera and everything u noe! and den she brings me to the Straits Times exhibition and there stood taufik...a life-sized POSTER! Aiyoooohhhh i was mortified...sheesh...

So when i got back to where the rest of the gerls were, they were all sniggering and laughing at me...haiyohhh they all bluffed me...i felt like a complete ass.

Ah well, heheh i'll get them back for that hehehehe

Now back to my free and idyllic time (till about 11.15 at least)

I wonder...

I wonder how long this is going to keep up. This simply defies the rules.

Watever was done shouldn't have been done.

True, i wanted it but then at what expense? It seemed so easy to comprehend at that moment.

It was so easy and comfortable.

I am so in dip-shit....

I knew i should have just kept my mouth shut.

On the other hand, my flu hasn't made a comeback, alhamdullillah.
But my throat still kinda feels sore. But i've been chugging water like im trying to be the next singaporean reservoir. So i would say i am well onto the path of recovery.

I already missed one training of futsal. Daym...i simply can't believe HOW bz i am this semester. I hope that i get to finish one of my assignments soon.

There are tests due in 2 weeks time. And i havent gotten down to reading the damned General Prologue. But it should be fun.

The new academic calendar has been altered to accomodate the groans of students being unable to enjoy EidulFitr. And thus, yours truly now has only 3 days of a mid-sem break. 3days...wat can i possibly do in 3 days to de-stress!? this is utter madness...

Another bummer to add the the already burgeoning list would be the fact that i won't have a revision period. So examinations start from the 20th October to the 1st of November. AND, hari raya is on the 3rd of november. already pple are worried about getting tickets and not being able to come back on time.

please release the exam time-table now...i noe its a tad bit early but i still would like to spend some of my ramadhan here in singapore.

the thought of no iftar with the girls, no jalan² at the Geylang bazaar simply sends shivers to my spine.

Already i don't get to spend national day and enjoy national day + adam's 7th bdae this yr (and of course not being able to catch taufik in his acting debut in shooting stars! reads:i. am.majorly.and. royally. pissed.). it is simply disheartening.

I feel stretched like a rubber band and im about to break.

So how now about Ummatic Week: Sister's Cultural participate or not? I'm sorry girls. I simply cant make that kind of commitment anymore. Im sorry to disappoint you all. another jam packed weekend for me again...wat else is new?

As expected...

Like i said before... I'm suffering that breakdown of mine. Went to the doc yday with a runny nose, a sore throat and feeling a tad feverish.

Came out of the docs office with a prescription for swollen tonsils, flu and fever.

My throat still kinda itches and aches. I've been in bed most of the time. Just decided that i had to get out of bed, get lunch and then later after that take my meds....

When i am ill, It is He who cures me....Amin

Kak CT i miss you too!!!!!!!!!!!! Muackks...Wish it were during the old days...

I can't believe this.

I cant believe...

1) that SHE is such a selfish and self-centered bitch. she thinks the world revolves around her and quite frankly, she should be kicked out if she doesn't give a hand or two.

2) that my body is already breaking down though its only been 2 weeks into the semester. My throat is all scratchy. I'm feeling irritable and my head feels full of cotton. My stomach wants to be emptied of its contents. And frankly i should stop here before i make other people sick.

3)that I'm so busy this semester. I'm still waiting for a breather. *sob sob* bye bye Bali...

My social life...or the nonexistence of it more like it

Its been a tough 2 weeks back at the uni. More challenges this time round. An additional subject rather than the usual 5. Assignments galore. Not to mention the presentations.

This is going to be a very daunting semester. And i guess i have to shelve that plan of going to Bali this september(wishful thinking all along).

I desperately need a break. Before I break down.

...Full soon thy Soul shall have her earthly freight,
And custom lie upon thee with a weight...
W. Wordsworth

That's what I feel like I'm going through right now.
Just want to share one of my fav poems.
One that I ferst saw at the back of a door in a loo at Lakeside, UK heheheh...

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretch'd in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Semester One...

Okay so i had a bad start to the new semester yesterday. I'm so blardy jinxed i tell ya.

While getting out of the car at Kranji mrt stn, i dropped my hp pouch (which incidentally held my ex-link card as well) onto the blardy floor. And it was only when i boarded the bus that i realized the pouch wasn't with me and the bus was already moving. I was almost on the verge of screaming and hysterical (knowing for a fact that i had so many contacts listed in moi hp). I called me dad on his hp -using my fren's hp of course- but he said he didn't hear any ringing from my hp. Then i finally came to the conclusion that it fell to the floor while I was getting out of the car.

I was already on the verge of tears cos i didnt want to lose my precious hp. SO i called up kak masykurah who happened to still be at the bus stop and asked her to help me look for the hp. She called back 5 mins later telling me and Aisyah Spec that my darling hp had been found. And guess where it was.

It was on the fcuking road!!!!!

Lucky no bus came and ran over my baby! Phew.

Now i guess u could say that i'm all set for the new semester.

Let's pray that my hp doesn't decide to bail on me again.

*Sheesh. How am i gonna get through the semester in one piece?*

So long, goodbye...till we see each other again

I feel so forlorn. Especially my heart. Not good at all. Feel bloody lousy...

Ahh forget it. Its not worth my time and effort anyway. And i shall stick to what i've always thought about guys (or men>>its wat they like to be called).

No offence to those nice guys out there.

I'll be back soon. Wish me luck!

Need. I. Say. More?

This day has been the WORST of all the other days that I've been stuck at home.

o.n.e : my uni web server decided to crash on the day that all year two students were due to do their add/drop exercise.

*how bloody convenient*

t.w.o : the electricity was due to be cut off today so that the workers outside could change the electrical riser's wires. so i was devoid of electricity from 8.30am to about 3.30pm just now. so there was no fan. no internet. even the fridge was out. thank god for the phone. i thot i was going to die.

thank god for my girlies.

so yesterday i managed another quick outing wif ma gerls...yeay! went to changi airport. picked up shereen frm werk wif sha and azimah. poor shereen, she was soooo sleepy. i probably bet that she's sleeping right this moment too.

finally getting the shot rite!

went to bugis. ogled at all the pretty stuff at seiyu. i promise u dorothy i will come back and bring u home!

walked walked walked until we worked up a thirst for some of coffeebean and tealeaf's new belgium choc ice blended! it was soooooo tastebuds were dancing with delight! haiz. i love u so belgium choc ice blend. keep it on the menu pls!!!

Dinner was held at ZamZam with 4 of us settling for the same thing: mutton chop....superbly YUMMY! Zak had the mee goreng mamak to which she surrendered after only going through about half of it. then off we went to snap snap peekchures like a couple of cam whores.

aren't we all happy?

bumped into a couple pple. Rofitah at coffeebean and then Fizzy at ZamZam. So happy to see you all!!!

I just have one more thing to add. YJC Girls have been crowned floorball champs!!! I love you gerls!!! Congrats are in order! Thanks especially to Coach Ngasti. I knoe u've been waiting for this one a LONG time! Yeay! We have a trophy! Keep up the gd werk gerls!

Now i shall go back to nursing my poor little finger that got caught at the door of Golden Landmark. (yes it was a bloody mess with some of my skin coming off) And now its a bit swollen.

I guess this will probably be my second last post till i go back to KL *again*
baaahhh humbug.


Sunday, July 03, 2005


Wah, i tell you this hols has been one smorgasbord of good food the whole way thru and thru. Sedaps ke per. When i got back the first thing i indulged in abt my eating habits was the very very VERY sinful laksa at Banquet Jurong East. dreaming of that as i write this (not forgetting to mention that my mouth just waters when i think about that sinful dish!) - i think i'll probably whip that up before i leave for KL next week.

The other piece of gastronomical delight that i had was crab that mummy cooked to perfection last week. Chilli crab...yum. I only have that special dish at home probably about once every six months. I practically cracked and sucked out every piece of that hard exoskeleton till it was mush. I can't imagine how messy i'd look if i had to eat that at a restaurant. its another six month wait till the next crab dish.

This week itself, TWO pple blanja me makan. Once at Seoul Garden and the other at Sofra International Food. Courtesy of dad and Abg Mustaqim (tak sia-sia jadi usher utk MOU b/w Pergas n UIA hhehehe). Seoul Garden at AMK is very disappointing. Not a lot of variety. Plus its very diff to manouevre yourself in that establishment. The best so far (according to me lah but dun quote me k!) the ones at Takashimaya, Causeway Point and Marina Square. Floor plan for seoul garden very impt k! But nevertheless i enjoyed myself cos i got to spend time with my family.

Yesterday Abg Mus blanje makan kat Sofra! Woah...sedap jugak arh. Tapi biasalah kan kalau arab and mediterranean food is a bit bland and they loveeeee tomatoes. Dunno why. Anyway i had the shish kebab...the portion was JUST NICE! and the prices are akin to that of Swensens. So u shld head down there and try it for yourself. Its at Shaw Towers. Level 2. Click here for more info about Sofra International Food.

Ader tak siaper-siaper lagi tak yang nak blanjer kiter makan???

Aniwaes i had a pretty tiring day and i was completely bushed out just now thanks to the tuition. Its good to be tutoring again. But one of the kids im tutoring aiyah dunno whether lazy, slow, uninterested OR has a learning disability.
[Sabarlah ye. Patience is half of Iman]

Another week has come and gone. One more week left. I'm gonna miss this sunny island of singapore. if i live on an island, why is it that i havent seen the beach yet!!! Aaaaaaaarrrrggggghhhhhh. Must see the laut at least once before i go back. If not i will never get a chance to see it for the whole of next sem!

.::Dreaming Of The Seabreeze::.


p/s: methinks me forgot to mention that lovely lunch sponsored by Shasha courtesy of Sabar Menanti *wootness* credit should be given where credit is due heheheh

Actually I ____________
(dunno wat to write/im bored)

Its already the second week of hols. And the week is coming to a close already. Some milestones of this hols were:

1. managed to get a tutoring stint at yew tee (yeahhhh i hear the sound "kachingggg" already)

2. tutored the wits out of my brother

3. spent way too much time on the pc (heheh)

4. spent some money on _________ (i loike!)

5. Free lunch courtesy of Shasha (thanks again babe!)

Not bad lah for a three week vacation. Haiz...wish it were longer. Just a bit. Need to visit grandpa soon too. His leg is swollen cos of gout. My grandpa looks older than he shld be. Haiz. Its that bad leg of his. I pray tht he'll still have his health. Amin.

Watched Kal Ho Naa Ho wif my gerlfrens at Shereen's place. Such a nice time wif the gerls. Just lepaking and pigging out on cookies and ice-cream as well as just all the little gerl talk. Shereen i can't believe you told ur mom that! hehhe im so mortified. So paisey to go ur house! hehehhehe no harm done though k? hehehe...

Pity zak couldnt join us. Next time k!

So amacam? This friday kiter gi rumah sha plak...Eye 10! Yehaaaaaa...Pas tu sunday kiter gi Mak's hhehehehe...i loikkkeeeeee!

Tomorrow...i plan to...rot @home.


Saturday, June 25, 2005 has been...

Ok im not going to now u dont have to miss me that much k?

Like it ever made a difference to you.

My evenings are now laden with guilt. I still remember how i unmistakenly and unknowingly messed everything up.

Like the sign on msn messenger reads: i've got the midas touch of disaster.

It still irks me how he refuses to take any ounce of blame. How he says he's not in any way reponsible.

How could you!? Why are you being such a jerk? Does it make you feel better that im miserable?

I'm sure it does.

I can practically see that smirk on your face...enjoying every second of my misery. Grow up will you? I was wrong too. I know that. At least i admitted to everything I did.

You want to throw our friendship down the drain go ahead. Its your loss.


Suddenly i feel lost.

Suddenly i feel lazy

Suddenly i feel lethargic.

I can't seem to think of anything nice to say anymore. It just takes up too much energy and too much time.

There's a million things running through my mind right now and i don't know even where to begin. Was told to blog. Didn't know wat to write. bonjolboy asked me to write abt myself. I don't think its worth writing or mentioning. Nothing interesting. Just the usual i'm-bumming-at-home-for-my-holidays repertoire.Nothing new. The only thing new is moi coveting that pair of gorgeous charles & keith sandals to replace my veryveryveryveryvery worn out pair of bata sandals.

But then again ALL girls covet a pair of gorgeous/elegant looking footwear.

I need to hear the wonderful sounds of cash registers ringing up my purchases. *One more patient!* An aural delight. That in itself is therapeutic.

I hope azimah has decided to come along with me to KL this coming monday night. if she doesnt, i won't even bother. i need to shop! do some retail therapy. Not to mention i need to do some escorting pertaining to the new students entering the uni this cmg semester. so we're there to help them iron out the kinks. its definitely gonna be a LOOOOONNNNNNNGGGG day.

If not for azimah, i wont be going to KL cos i sure as hell don't need to be there earlier than im supposed to. I don't miss sch that much either. Well not yet anyway. I still need a break. A longer one.

Now i shall disappear and continue setting this exam paper for my mom.

I. Need. A. Break.

This running around like a headless chicken is proving to be taking more energy than expected.

I need more than a break. I need a massage, a pedicure and a manicure perhaps. A little facial wouldn't hurt. Let's see whether we can get my aunt to sponsor me on that. Heh heh.

Tomorrow will be my first programme since being appointed as a member of the exco. Kinda nervous. Hopeful. Testy. sooo stressed out. I have so many things to cover. I JUST HOPE I DON'T SCREW UP.

I managed to meet my gerls yesterday. Was a short meeting but i enjoyed every minute of it nevertheless. We had a quick dinner...chatted, gossiped (the gossip was JUICY) heheheh...I love you gerls. U are my heart and soul. I pray that we'll always be together and see each other go thru the gd times as well as the bad. And i can't wait for the time for the first of us to get married/engaged/watever! *sabarlah maryam kalau ye pun!*

I may have to take a quick trip to KL on tuesday. Dunno whether azimah nak ikut tak eh. Satu hari pun jadi lah kan? heheheh...

On the other hand...i havent been having a gd night's rest these days. My heart hangs heavy. Entah. tak tau aper lah yg buat aku risau sangat. sedih tak. happy pun takderlah sampai ke tahap ecstatic. Pls God help me take this emptiness away...the dull throb is almost gone. But i'm proud of how far i've come. I'm glad that im not making the same mistakes that i've made before.*sigh*

Let's hope that tomorrow will have better things in store.
