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.
