Assalamualaikum. =)

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: "Do you know who is most generous? God is the Most Generous, then I am most generous to mankind, and the most generous people after me will be those who will acquire knowledge and then disseminate it. They will come on the Day of Resurrection singly, like a ruler."

Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 93

Off for a "Long" winter holiday! Hee. :D

Hey peeps! :D




First thing first, I just had an awesome day! Went for a jog early in the morning and Ice-Skating later in the evening at Carlton Hotel, Galway! Hee. Haven't really skate for quite sometime now. Lost a bit of those special balancing skills on ice. *fell twice right down the knees! LOL* Anyway, glad to have an ice rink over here in Galway. :DDD (I loved it when they played "Fireworks" by Katy Perry. My favourite song aka Booster of all times! Heee. )







   So, I'm off tomorrow night to Dublin-Bristol. Bristol-Southampton-Portsmouth-London-Manchester-Dublin-Belfast(PUISI). Long list huh? I'm just a follower, didn't even helped the seniors with anything really. Hehe. Excited to have my first winter holiday without my family. Insya-Allah, hope everything goes well as planned. Amin! May the journey throughout UK and Northern Ireland be smooth. :)



P/S : I'll try my best to update my blog with pictures to share. Insya-Allah. :)

Semester 1? Over! Hee. :)

Insya-Allah it will be over for me, for my friends. Hope no one will face any failures. :)
(Please God. I don't want to see those Biochem and Pharmacology come creeping on me again. LOL!)

Bismillahir rahmanir rahim. :)

   So, 1.1 is over and here comes holiday. Yeay, my first winter holiday ever abroad! Alhamdulillah. (Oh wait! I once went to Perth, Australia during winter.) *Memory lost* Anyway, I hope this holiday would be the most memorable event so far for me. UK Winter Trip! Hee. Insya-Allah. :D

   Talking about winter. Hmm. I wonder when will the snow really fall on Galway? So far there's only hail and this evening, it snows "partially". Really wants it to snow. Despite of the degree of coldness. Hee. ^-^ Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope it snows here in Galway. If not, no big deal. I could play snowball fights at Belfast anyway. Haha. :P

   Aftermath of exams? Hmm. Let me see. Null! Glad its over. Never gonna face those "times" again, hoping so. Lets make du'a, whenever and wherever we are. Remember to not forget Allah in times of happiness. FYI, happiness, wealth and health is a challenge too! You need Allah's blessings always, both in hardships and happy times. Remember! :D

   Okay. That's it for now. Lets get going for baking and movie marathons AND winter trip! Hehehe. :DDD

Salthill  - 8 Dec 2011

N.A.'A.


P/S : Stress is good, in a way that it pushes us out of our comfort zone, resulting in HARD WORK! May Allah permit those hard work into success. Insya-Allah. :)

Salthill.


Not a pro in doing video editing or stuffs. Did this just for self-satisfaction. Hihi. :D


I LOVE SALTHILL. :D

Midst of the Exam Week. =)

Assalam. Hey readers, how ye doin? LOL. (Stop doing that, you don't sound Irish okay?!) Pfffttt. =.='

Never lose hope of Allah and yourself. :D
Yeah, as the tittle says so, I'm in the midst of the EXAM week. Exam, yeah, EXAM. End of Semester EXAM! I don't actually need to emphasize more on the "exam" word should I? The amount of pressure could demonstrate better impacts. Trolololo. =S

   The exam week had actually kicked off last Friday, yesterday (Monday) the Anatomy Spot test and today was the Physiology MCQ. =.=' Oh, I shall not discuss about the frustrations on the Immunology questions. Let it be what it wants to be. Let Allah decide what happens next. Insya-Allah, I believe I've worked my best. I put my faith in Allah. ;)
Bismillahi tawakkaltu 'alallah, wala haula wala quwwata illa billah : 
In the name of Allah, there is no strength nor power except with Allah. =)
   Next up is the Leisureland bound Anatomy MCQ! Yeay. I'm expressing a YEAY for Leisureland, not Anatomy MCQ. FYI, Leisureland have a mini golf park, swimming pool and a whole lotta other fun things! Never been into the building, but I've managed to check it out once, when I went for a run at Salthill. It looks awesome and one of the seniors told me it is actually AWESOME! Hihi. Hope so. :DDD

My baby in Galway. Meet Ger (Gerina). Its a she! <3
   Nothing much happened these past weeks. Been busy with revisions for the exams and stuff. The weather is getting colder as we approach winter. It rained ICE twice last week. And its an ouchy-feely when you try jogging in Ice-Rain! LOL. +.+

   And oh, here's a good article on Life (Hidup itu Perjalanan, bukan destinasi). A quote really did catch my eyes straight down my heart :
Umat Islam akan diuji dengan lima perkara iaitu saudara seagama yang sentiasa dengki terhadapnya, orang munafiq yang sentiasa membencinya, orang kafir yang sentiasa memeranginya, syaitan yang sentiasa berusaha menyesatkannya dan bisikan hawa nafsu yang sentiasa menggoncang keimanannya. Semuanya ini menuntut kesabaran dan di dalamnya terdapat ganjaran pahala yang besar daripada Allah SWT.


P/S : Google translate it if you can't read Malay. Heee. Today is Ashura day! May Allah bless today, tomorrow and the coming days. Good luck in your exams Galwegians! ;D

Hijrah! :D

Assalam. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. =)

Our new year is here! Alhamdulillah. Thankful to still be given time to live up to this new year of Islam, 1433 Hijrah. Happy New Year, Happy Awal Muharram! ;D

   So, as usual, every new year there's always new wishes/targets are being set. :)

New year, new hope, new me, new you, new us. Insya-Allah. :)

   All I want for myself is, to be a better person. Still in progress. Step by step. Insya-Allah. :)


P/S : Exam in a week's time, lets work hard. May Allah ease. ;)

Priceless.

Assalam. Owh hey peeps! :D

   Things don't always go your way. Your whims and fancies aren't always satisfied, never will be, forever. Today's your lucky day, but perhaps not tomorrow. Only God knows. All these abstract things in life could only be understood after having to go through that peak point in life. No pain, no gain. Thus, every second of that hardship is PRICELESS. The most valuable thing money can't buy. Allah knows best. =)

   After all, looking back and reflecting on what you have been through so far, says much on how far you've traveled through life and how much priceless experiences have you picked up. To me, there are lots more ahead, even more challenging ones. So, here's when the RISK factor comes in. Being a risk taker is something exciting, adrenaline pumping (sounds like my F1 tagline. Haha). Without risk taking, life is dull. Living in the world of the same old daily routine is lame and it'll surely bore you to death. So, come on friends, get to know new stuffs everyday, make new friends, talk to a stranger, do something out of the norm. Be adventurous once in awhile! :D

   Take advantage of what you have right in front of you and you shall not have regrets. Heee. :D


P/S : Be grateful and never forget to take your chances. Turn imaginations into reality! Insya-Allah may Allah give us barakah in our life. Amin! :)

Islamic Etiquette.

Assalamualaikum again for the second time this morning. Heee. :D

In this post, I would like to share a little bit on Islamic Etiquette, which I stumbled upon a few days ago on this website called "My First Steps in Islam". Here's the link to Islamic Etiquette. It's very interesting to get to know the little things that we should and shouldn't do in the everyday life. :)


   So, I decided to share on a few of those over here. Don't hesitate to add on if you know some other important points. ;D

  1. Say Bismillah (in the name of Allah) before eating/drinking, and say Alhamdulillah (thank you Allah) upon it. Eat with your right hand, and eat what's in front of you. Islam emphasizes on modesty, thus eat modestly.\
  2. Never criticize on food. Be grateful of what you have. If you don't like it, leave it intact, let other people have it instead. You may be the lucky ones with food, imagine how many more in other parts of the world whom are on food starvation. And, remember to not waste on food! Don't take what you can't finish.
    "Indeed, the wasteful are brothers of the devils, and ever has Satan been to his Lord ungrateful." Al-Isra : 27 
  3. Supress yawning. Either by covering the mouth with your right palm or the back of your left palm or make a fist out of your left palm. Remember to not make sounds out of the yawn as Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) quoted : “Yawning is from the Shaytaan. When one of you feels like yawning, let him suppress it as much as he can. And if one of you yawns making sound, “Aahh!” Shaytaan laughs.” (Bukhari #3115)
  4. Say Alhamdulillah upon sneezing. The Prophet (pbuh) said : “When one of you sneezes, let him say, ‘Alhamdulillaah,’ his brother or companion should say to him, ‘Yarhamuk-Allahu,’ and the one who sneezed should say, ‘Yahdeekumullaah wa yuslihu baalakum.’ ” (Bukhari #5870)
  5. Do not burp out loud in public. It is seen as non-ethical. Everyone knows burping out loud is not the nicest thing to be heard/seen right? So, I need not elaborate on this. :)
  6. Upon sleeping, make du'a to Allah : Doa Tidur. Sleep laying to your right side, and if possible, face the kiblah sleeping. بِاسْمِكَ اللّهُمَّ أَحْيَاوَأَمُوتُ : Bismikallahumma ahya wa amutu [With Your name I live and I die]. Upon waking up, say : اَلْحَمْدُ ِللهِ الَّذِى أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَمَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ : Alhamdulillahil ladzi ahyana ba’da ma amatana wailaihin nusyur [All praise is due to Allah, Who gives us live after He has caused us to die and to Him will be the resurrection].
  7. Upon leaving your home, say ‘Bismillaahi, tawakkaltu ‘ala Allahi, laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaah.’ This is further elaborated in my previous post Tawakkal. And it does not only apply to leaving homes, it do apply upon our daily life too. Tawakkal is the act upon someone or something to place faith and confidence, and it directly refers to Allah. After having to do your best in something, you leave it to Allah to decide what's the best outcome of it. Insya-Allah, He knows best. And my dad always practice the habit of versing Ayatul Kursi (1:255) every time leaving home. Insya-Allah, May Allah protect us. =)

P/S : Really hope this helps. Hee. Insya-Allah. Lets share what we know! ;D

Bismillah. =)

Assalam blog readers. =)

   Everything we do must begin with Bismillah, in the name of Allah. =)



Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, Most Compassionate. (Dengan nama Allah, yang Maha Pemurah, Maha Penyayang/Mengasihani)

   Yes, it is a simple word, but truly it brings a significant meaning to every action we do.

   Had some spare time, so figured out to google on it. Look what I've found about Bismillah.

Using these basic roots, the term bismillah might be translated as :
- By means of the very essence of God
- For the glory of our Creator
- With the light of the One
- With the guidance of The Divine
- As an instrument of the One
- In harmony with Divine Presence
   As we begin our daily chores, say Bismillah, because everything we do on earth is for One purpose, that is for Allah. Insya-Allah. May Allah give His blessing. =)

P/S : Add on anything if you wish to. And correct me if I'm wrong. I'm still new in these things. May Allah give us guidance through life. Insya-Allah. ;)

Deteriorating.

Assalam. Sorry. This is not going to be much positive post at the moment. =S


______________________________________________________
BEWARE, it's DEMOTIVATING.

______________________________________________________

   Medicine is hard as expected. Yeah, it is. Sometimes, I do think I don't fit in well. "Perhaps, this isn't my thing. Perhaps I should have stick on Asasi and try my luck on Mechy instead. Medic? So not me." I really am hating this feeling, this sucks to the core, dude! ='(

   I've been figuring out ways to increase, at least a little, just a little of my marks on the tests. Guess what? All those hard work apparently are NOT WORKING. No changes seen. Hypothesis accepted. I'm born average. Just some ordinary girl whose brain aren't really expanding and emo-ness over-rides. Sometimes, stuffs just make me feel stupid, really stupid. As if I have a brain as small as the size of a pea. Grrrrrreat! =.='

   Yeah, people will say I am not grateful of what I've been given. No way. I'm grateful to be given this golden chance of travelling this far to Ireland. But, do you understand the pressure I have? No you won't, because you aren't in my shoes. Things are complicated in my own ways. Emotions, feelings, studies, homesickness, tiredness, stress, peer pressure, workloads, time constraints. What more could you get yourself soaked into? I've tried almost everything to distract my emotions from being so high up top. Not much had worked, except for crying. Sad case. T-T

   Jogging comes in right. If a jog doesn't work, ice-creams would help ease better. Endorphin in chocolates are just temporary substitutes. After all, the best I could do was to turn to Him. Al-Quran is the ultimate healer of all, yes. But, sometimes things aren't that simple. Hormonal imbalance would cost you mind disruptions. RedBull is one of the cause. #.#

   Okay. That's it. I've spilled everything. Almost everything. Don't worry. I'm okay, still smiling despite of the immunity against my own stupidity. *fake smile* Duhhh. This is normal I guess? Hmmm. Insya-Allah, I pray I will not fail any of the subjects. I hope the RedBull consumptions wasn't just a waste. Hope so. =S


P/S : Sorry for the incredibly crappy emotion spill, I just needed a place to spill it all out. May Allah ease my burdens. May Allah forgive my mistakes. May Allah give me better days ahead. May Allah do the same to you readers too. Insya-Allah. =')

The same, yet different.

Assalamualaikum wbt.
Young hearts, I believe that we're not far, from becoming who we truly are. Dreamers, you see everything in colours, while the world is getting darker. So, hold on another day, cause love is on its way. You're gonna be okay, cause love is on its way. It's alright, you'll find a brighter day, cause love is on its way.

Okay. That is not from me, it's entirely based on the lyrics of the song "Love Is On Its Way" by The Jonas Brothers. Yeay, JB still have my heart up until now! :DDD

    Anyways, this title was random. Nothing significant, really.

This weekend marks the 7th week upon my arrival here in Galway, Ireland. Alright, I'm tired of doing the countdown thingy already. Duhhh. Speaking about time, the daylight saving time has ended and now, we are an hour behind. A larger time difference between Ireland and Malaysia. Grrrrrreat. =.='''

   By far, no homesickness had been detected YET, just missing my family and some of my friends. Most probably because we were so preoccupied with tests and exams for the few past weeks, studies had been the priority to most of us. And to me too, of course. Haha. And YEAY, good news keep coming from home and apparently my newly wed brother is going to be a father! Hee. Two to-be-fathers in the house! I'm gonna be an auntie soon. Hehe. Insya-Allah. :DDD

   All work, no play makes Jack a dull boy. Yeah, true! Luckily, there were many things that had been helpful in terms of filling my time during the weekends, which is NOT academically related. Geez, I would die of boredom if everyday were filled with Medicine. -.-' Sports, Orchestra, COOKING (God. I still can't believe I could cook! Haha.) and not forgetting some spiritual-soul feeding sessions of usrah. Heee. I'm loving everything here, except for the cold extremities that's going on right now. =S
   Last week, I've been to Dublin and this week I've managed to tour Bunratty Castle & Folk Park in County Clare. Both venues had been awesome, Alhamdulillah. =) Travelling aren't just about travels, it's always about gaining something. When you sacrifice or give something, you'll get something back. Wallahu 'Alam. :)

   The big winter exam is just around the corner. There's no time to fool around anymore. The only issue I'm having right now is to learn how to RELAX. Still trying to find ways to not push myself too hard. Insya-Allah, may Allah ease. Studying Medicine is no easy job dude, never underestimate the level of toughness it has. People whom survive these 5 years of struggle are tough people! Never look down on them. Hope I will be one of them, Insya-Allah. Amin. :D


P/S : Trying to save up for the winter trip to UK! Heeeee. Insya-Allah. :D

Tawakkal.



‘Bismillaahi, tawakkaltu ‘ala Allahi, laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaah.’


Meaning: I begin with the Name of Allah, I put my trust in Allah, there is no ability or might except with Allah.’


…it will be said to him, ‘Your affair has been taken care of, you have been protected [from all evil], and the Shaytaan moves away from him.” (Tirmidhi #3426 & Abu Dawood #5095)

You're Beautiful.

I see Your face in every sunrise
The colors of the morning are inside Your eyes
The world awakens in the light of the day
I look up to the sky and say
You're beautiful

I see Your power in the moonlit night
Where planets are in motion and galaxies are bright
We are amazed in the light of the stars
It's all proclaiming who You are
You're beautiful, You're beautiful

I see you there hanging on a tree
You bled and then you died and then you rose again for me
Now you are sitting on Your heavenly throne
Soon we will be coming home
You're beautiful, you're beautiful

When we arrive at eternity's shore
Where death is just a memory and tears are no more
We'll enter in as the wedding bells ring
Your bride will come together and we'll sing
You're beautiful, You're beautiful, You're beautiful

I see Your face, You're beautiful, You're beautiful, You're beautiful
I see Your face, You're beautiful, You're beautiful, You're beautiful
I see Your face, I see Your face
I see Your face, You're beautiful, You're beautiful, You're beautiful

*A song by Phil Wickham. Although it's a Christian song, I redirect it to Allah SWT. It's amazing how songs could be diverted to praising Allah if you listen and understand it well enough. :)
Subhanallah. Allahu Akhbar. =')


P/S : Only to Him the eternal love will remain. Insya-Allah. O' Allah may You bless me a good life and never let me go astray on this temporary dunya. =')

10 Thousands miles away.

Assalamualaikum.

Masya-Allah. We are already in the month of October! My fourth week here and yet I feel I've been here for almost year. Pretty much covered the maps of Galway and trying to reach out to places in Ireland. Insya-Allah. =)

   Up to this point, I've realized things are always to be shared. No matter what, when and how. Working alone, going solo all the time, will get you nowhere, for real. Why did I said so? Perhaps being in my shoes would provide you a better understanding. On occasions, I feel tremendously terrible of myself. Of things. Fortunately, Allah always sends me someone to help me get through those terrible days. Alhamdulillah. Allah never send you tests or musibah that you couldn't afford to handle. He knows whats best for you. And every incident, every action and every second of everything have its hikmah. Subhanallah. =')

   Today's conclusion? Share whatever goods you have in you. Giving is far better than receiving. But, things work in a bilateral way, so give and take with people, and may Allah bless you for sharing. :)

P/S : I've gain so much so far here. May Allah give us hidayah to change for the better and do good to others. Insya-Allah. Amin! =')

Time Flies! =O

Assalamualaikum everyone. :D

It has past midnight right now in Galway, and I'm still wide awake. For the past 2 weeks here in Galway, my eyes couldn't bare up to even 11pm. So yeah, tonight is an exceptional case. Most probably because it's Friday night, no classes on weekends, a big YEAY for that! Hee. Alhamdulillah, finally a REST for the week! :D

   After going through another hectic start of the week, it pretty much enhanced some of my soft skills with people and I'm fitting in quite well among my classmates, not only the Malaysians, also the Europeans and students of all around the globe, i.e. US, Canada, Philippines, and etc. Generally speaking, things around me, the pieces of puzzle are fitting in one by one, step by step each and everyday. Insya-Allah, looking forward to better days ahead.

   Up to date, the MCQ quizzes are going to start next week, and the laboratory practicals had started for the past week. Can't really imagine when the time comes for us to start with the cadaver dissection sessions. I hope I will be strong enough and mentally prepared to face the cadaver. =S

   That's it for now, I have lots to revise on for each subject. Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology and Professionalism 1.1. Pfffttt. Each individual subject is a big challenge, what more could it be for the total 5 of them? Gosh. I hope my time management will work it way throughout this whole course. Insya-Allah. :)

   May Allah bless this journey of ours in being better persons upon life. May He always grant our doa and may He always give us strength, with an addition of enough taqwa to be better muslims, to remind ourselves always of our roots and religion, what more in a foreign country like this. Insya-Allah. Amin. :)

P/S : I do not feel much of the homesickness with my friends being here as my support system. Alhamdulillah. I'm grateful of being in a such fortunate community of great individuals. Insya-Allah, hope this will build me some inner confidence and give me enough strength to perform in my studies and life, for the sake of Allah in being a better doctor. AMIN AMIN AMIN, Ya Rabbal alamin. =)

Be Grateful. :)

Assalamualaikum.

Alhamdulillah. It has been almost 5 days since I arrived here in Galway, Ireland. Autumn in Galway and the past few days were very windy, cloudy and cold. Constantly it was 15 degrees and below. And Alhamdulillah, today the weather was getting better as the Sunshine is shining, but still, its cold. =S

   Started my classes for the second day today. You won't believe it, if I were to say my class is in a capacity of 240+ students. Drastic expansion of the size of medical student in Galway. Most probably because of the money crisis they are facing right now. Hehehe. =X

   So far, so good. Insya-Allah. Trying my very best to fit in the weather and to mingle around as much as possible. Classmates from all over the world, an eye-opener for me. :)

   Honestly, my seniors are the coolest people on earth! Despite of the scarce free time they had, they tried to guide us around and provide many many many great tips for survival. Thank you guys! I love you all. Only God could repay all your good deeds! Amin. :DDD

   I'm getting homesick already. To get halal food here is a hard thing for sure. Now I'm really appreciating Malaysia very very very much! ='( It seems like I'm gonna lose a lot of weight these 3 years. Walking to and fro the university everday, plus with the difficulty of getting halal meat, I'm gonna be a temporary vegetarian here.(Hope not so)

   That's it for now, it's 10pm right now in Galway, Ireland. And it's approximately 5am there in KL. I miss my family, my crazy sisters, my cats and my friends. Insya-Allah. I will you all soon. Do skype with me when you see me on skype yeah? =')

Every Breath ♥




It sounds like this is nothing new and that it hasn't been for awhile
You wake up on the other side and you strain to force a smile
The fairytale inside your head has become your new best friend
But I can assure you, that I'll be there before the story ends

'Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me, you'll be the only light I see

I'm racing the finish line of a lifetime thats barely started
The piece of mind I left behind, I pray you keep in your perfect garden
You're waiting on a minute hand in a countdown that lasts for days
But I'm here to tell you, it won't be long before I'm here to stay

'Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me, you'll be the only light I see

The weightlessness and the lack of rest
away from you, im in over my head
Even when it's dark before the dawn
I will feel your grace and carry on
And with every breath of me, you'll be the only light I see

When I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me, you'll be the only light I see

Even when it's dark before the dawn
I will feel your grace and carry on
And with every breath of me, you'll be the only light I see
The only light I see

With every breath I make

P/S : To you, you, you, you, you, you, and every person I care about. May Allah give me strength in these last few days. Holding back my tears as hard as I could. ='(

Meow Meow. :D

Assalam peeps! :D

I'm still in Kuching, Sarawak. The fourth fifth day, and the last night here. Hee. Did a little tour around the area, that's about it. Too tired and too busy to tour about further into Sarawak. Hehe. Perhaps next time, Insya-Allah. :)

   Heading home to KL tomorrow morning (practically it's today. Duhhh.). My lovely Firefly apparently delayed my flight to 1025, owh never mind, at least I was informed about the delay 2 days earlier.

   Anyway, done with my brother's wedding reception and all. Now, I have a new official member in the family! TeeHee. Welcome Kak Intan! :D Congrats to my eldest bro of the super grand marriage and I hope the reception in KL will be superb too, Insya-Allah. I hope I will get the chance to view, at least pictures of the October reception. Kinda sad that I won't have the chance to help my bro organize the KL reception. ='( Insya-Allah, it will all go well with my crazy-minded sisters around. Hahaha. :P

   As soon as I get back to Ampang, I would have to start to pack my stuffs already. Goshhh. I just hate packing. 4 more days. I will make sure these remaining days will be filled with great moments and memorable laughters, with God's willing. Insya-Allah. ;)


P/S : To friends, good luck in your Degree intake. Lets work harder in this tertiary level of education. One more, pleaseeeee don't send me at the airport, I'm pretty sure I will not have the time to talk and hang out with you guys, and I'm definitely sure I will breakdown with tears flowing like a WATERFALL over there. I don't wish for you to see me crying. ='(

Aidilfitri! :D

Assalam.

First thing first. I would like to wish all muslims,

EID MUBARAK! :D

   These few days of mine was a bit hectic, with the last preparations for Eid and all. So, yeah. Raya is the most important thing in my mind right now. I want to enjoy it to its fullest. May Allah bless this Syawal and accept our fasting and ibadahs in Ramadhan. Insya-Allah. Amin. 

   To my dear blog readers and friends, I would like to apologize sincerely from the bottom of my heart, if I've ever created or sparked any bad or uncomfortable feelings in you. Sorry and may I be forgive for whatever wrongdoings I've did this whole time of knowing anyone of you. May Allah forgive us and let us change towards the better. Allahu Akhbar. =)

P/S : Even though it's Raya festive, don't forget your prayers and watch over your diet okie? Take care. :D

I SHEEP! :D





P/S : I wish I could adopt one in Eire. :P

A Better Person.

"Whatever career you may choose for yourself - doctor, lawyer, teacher - let me propose an avocation to be pursued along with it. Become a dedicated fighter for civil rights. Make it a central part of your life. It will make you a better doctor, a better lawyer, a better teacher. It will enrich your spirit as nothing else possibly can. It will give you that rare sense of nobility that can only spring from love and selflessly helping your fellow man. Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for human rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country and a finer world to live in."
Martin Luther King

The past few weeks of CRAZINESS. =S

Assalamualaikum, blog readers. =)

I have not blogged for the past few weeks already. My life have been filled with busyness from the moment I started working till today and still the busyness will prolong till the day I head to Eire, I'm pretty sure. I wonder will it extend until the day I return to Malaysia? I hope not. Pfffttt. =.='

   Alright! Enough crapping. Lets get straight to the point, shall we?

By right, today is already the 26th of August. Four more days of Ramadhan, and we'll celebrate our long awaited Eid Mubarak. I do not sound thrilled, do I? Curious to know why? Hurm. This is why...

   My brother will be getting married on the 2nd September in Kuching. I will only be able to celebrate Eid in KL for TWO days, and then I'm off to Sarawak until the 6th. Upon returning in KL, I will be busy packing for my next longgggg journey. This is when I really must stay strong. ='( ALL THIS IN SUCH A SHORT TIME! I'm very very very depressed when I come to think of the day it will be at the airport.

   People had been saying, "Oh you're independent, you're strong, you're brave". Only God knows how weak and dependent I will be when I'm away from my family! Argh. ~.~

P/S : I've been depressed, sad, exhausted, crazy and kinda feel like a loner these few weeks. So, yeah. Breaking it all up and getting my Raya mood soon. Insya-Allah. Ramadhan had been testing much on my patience. Insya-Allah, Allah has His plans of doing so. I've pickup a lot on Life ever since these problems arise. Thankful, but still I feel stressed out. May Allah ease my Life. Amin. =)

Good Tips for Ramadhan and some other days. :D

Lets spare some of our time to watch this useful video shall we? I assure you, much benefits will be gained, despite of the fact that the video is quite a long one. Something useful are to be shared and spread after all, aite? Insya-Allah. :)


How to stay productive during Ramadhan? Three main items : Focus, Energy and Balance.

INTENTION is a very very very important thing in everything of Life. Insya-Allah, with a good and right intention, we'll live a good life. :)

   TIME. Discard the unnecessary items, the distractions that takes much of our time in our daily life. We don't actually do much in one day, do we? Yes, distraction fill much of our life (mine too!). So, ponder for awhile, what have we done in a week, a month, a year? And how much of the time are filled with distractions and not quality time with Allah The Almighty? Astaghafirullah. This is a reminder for myself and maybe this could be for you too. So, try to make your days more productive okie? :)

   From this video, there are a few great tips that drew my attention into it. One of it was, the Sleep cycle part and the POWER NAP! :DDD Please watch it and I give you 300% assurance that you'll never regret watching it. The first part was quite slow, yes. But as you proceed beyond time 12.36, you'll be WOW-ed like me! Haha. =O! 

   I want to share a little about the power nap part here. Hee. You just have to spend about 20minutes of your time to gain about 4hours' sleep time. That's cool right?! Just sit and relax, close your eyes and try to relax our body and mind, free yourself from any work. After 20mins, you'll feel fresher than ever! I've really tried it, during before Zohor, it really works! This is also the Sunnah of Rasulullah (pbuh). Lets try this out and you will have the rest of the day filled with energy. Insya-Allah. :DDD

   Insya-Allah. Hope this entry of mine and the video could assist all of us towards a better and more productive Ramadhan. Insya-Allah. Amin. ;)



P/S : We are almost reaching half of Ramadhan. Much challenges had been faced by me, my family and my friends. May Allah give us the strength and patience to endure the remaining Ramadhans. Insya-Allah. :)
Stay strong friends. Especially FT! I want the cheeky, cheerful dude back! ='(

Am back in the REAL world after being kidnapped by the workaholic cinematic alienated ME. :P

Assalamualaikum, world! :DDD

At de Palma Hotel. :)
Finally! I've end my part-time working days (bubye TGV ='( I will miss you!) and am back to the social buzzing world. Sorry for abandoning you, dear bloggie. ='/

Goodbye TGV! ='( 
   Sorry that I've been busy for the past month and not replying much of my friends' text on phone or chat messages on facebook. Sorry guys. I've been really busy and tired of work. A million, trillion and gazillion sorry! +.+

   Here I am today. Free of work. BUT! Am not free of things to be settled. Tons of stuffs to do. I would say, it is a preparation for the "short" trip to somewhere far away. Nahhh. Lets not get there. I will be emo-ish when I talk about this. I really don't feel like leaving, you know. ='(

   Anyways. At least today, I've bought my stationary and my study needs (books and dissecting kit). The rest? I'm still waiting for my offer letter from them, dude. It's almost mid August, yet I only have the agreement forms in hand. Pfffttt. Seems like I would have to rush things within this week, before I attend the pre-departure programme in Penang and in KL. And YEAH, it's gonna be another busy week for me!

   I wonder when will I have proper rest at home and enjoy them slowly? Plus, my brother is getting married this Raya, and that adds to the busyness schedule. ='( I need a break. Please. =.='

   Today marks the last day of the first 10 Ramadhans. Insya-Allah. May Allah give us blessing for the next 19 days of Ramadhan. Amin. :)

Awwww! I miss you guys already! The last day of work and hope this won't be the last hangout. ='(

P/S : I am already missing my TGV gang. Work wouldn't have been fun without you guys! Thanks for the wonderful experiences! =')

La Tahzan! =)

Assalam. Today I came across an interesting article in iLuvislam.com. These few paragraphs interest me the most. Lets spare your time and read it. =)
Firman Allah dalam surah Al-Baqarah ayat 216:
".......Dan boleh jadi kamu benci akan sesuatu sedang ia lebih baik bagimu, Dan boleh jadi kamu kasihi sesuatu sedang ia melarat kepadamu. Dan Allah mengetahui tetapi kamu tidak mengetahui.........."



Sometimes I asked for strength but Allah gave me difficulties so that i will be stronger.
Sometimes I asked for wisdom but Allah gave me problems so that i could think the ways of solving them.
Sometimes I asked for prosperity but Allah gave me brain so that i could use it to become a successful Muslim.
Sometimes I asked for courage but Allah gave me dangers so that i could find the ways to overcome those obstacles.
Sometimes I asked for love but Allah gave me tears so that i could drop them when I see those orphans live without love.

Sometimes I received nothing that I wanted but Allah always gave me everything that I Need.


LA TAHZAN YA MUSLIMIN, INNALLAHAMAAKUM!

Lets get Serious.

Emo-ish state is over. Yeahhhhhhh. Greattttttt. Felt like writing something useful to share. So, here it goes. :)

Before I start my so called Serious-Life-Session, lets watch this video, shall we? Heee. :)

Aiman Azlan. I admire his way of portraying his ideas in Vlogs. :)

Ever think of getting married? Finding the perfect person who would fit you, until death tears you apart until the hereafter? Yes, I do. And I would like to share, the type of husband I would love to have, with Allah's will. Insya-Allah. I could only plan in my head, only He The Almighty, could really make things happen. Allahu Akhbar. :D

My DREAM husband's characteristics:

  1. He whom rarely and barely miss his solah.
  2. He whom always does Amar Makruf & Nahi Mungkar.
  3. He whom knows his limits and reminds the others of it. (esp. me)
  4. He whom cares and do things in the Islamic way.
  5. He whom could tear his ego and pride away when dealing with people, regardless of the gender, race and religion.
  6. A good education background.
  7. I do not want a "somebody's" son. I just want someone special out of the ordinary. After all, we are all Allah's slave, we are all equally the same before Allah.
  8. He must be funny and matured at the same time. :D
And not forgetting Rasulullah S.A.W.'s guide in choosing a wife/husband. =)
The Prophet (s.a.w) said : "A woman may be married for four reasons : for her property, her status, her beauty, and her religion; so try to get one who is religious, may you be blessed."
We all want to marry someone who could be a good father/mother to our future child. So, yeah. I want someone who fits me well enough and someone who could guide me through my life, change me towards the better. :)

So far, I have not really found one yet. Insya-Allah, I pray to Allah, may He bless me a great future ahead and send me someone whom really could walk through life and into Jannah along with me. Insya-Allah. Amin. :)

P/S : I know this is too early for me to plan for my marriage and all, but I really wanted to pour all these since awhile ago. Since many raised the issue of marriage to me lately, so I finally had the courage to post this on my bloggie. Hope we all will find our perfect partners soon. Insya-Allah. Hoping for best, always. :D

Absent-Minded AGAIN.

Absent-Minded Exact same month this happened again this year. Crazy month of July.

Again I went into the Absent-Minded world. Perhaps, I think too much of things. Yeahhhhh. Things.

   And again I went into the emo-ish state of crying. Yeah. Crying. ='( It helps. Yeah, it does sometimes.

   Hope things could be clearer by today evening. Insya-Allah. Stop me from thinking too much, Ya-Allah. Pleaseeeeee. I'm breaking down. People just kept on messing with my soul. Save my soul from crying oh Allah.


P/S : I'm quitting my work soon. I can't stand the things that are going on right now. I rather spend my Ramadhan at home with my beloved family.

Skyscraper ♥





Skies are crying,
I am watching,
Catching teardrops in my hands.
Only silence, as it's ending,
Like we never had a chance.
Do you have to make me feel
Like there's nothing left of me?

You can take everything I have,
You can break everything I am,
Like I'm made of glass,
Like I'm made of paper.
Go on and try to tear me down.
I will be rising from the ground,
Like a skyscraper,
Like a skyscraper.

As the smoke clears,
I awaken,
And untangle you from me.
Would it make you feel better
To watch me, while I bleed?
All my windows still are broken,
But I'm standing on my feet.
You can take everything I have,
You can break everything I am,
Like I'm made of glass,
Like I'm made of paper.
Go on and try to tear me down.
I will be rising from the ground,
Like a skyscraper,
Like a skyscraper.

Go run, run, run.
I'm gonna stay right here,
Watch you disappear.
Yeah, ohh.
Go run, run, run.
Yeah, it's a long way down,
But I am closer to the clouds,
Up here.

You can take everything I have,
You can break everything I am,
Like I'm made of glass,
Like I'm made of paper.

Ohhh

Go on and try to tear me down.
I will be rising from the ground,
Like a skyscraper,
Like a skyscraper.
(Like a skyscraper)
Like a skyscraper,
Like a skyscraper.


P/S : This song is soooo soooo soooo COOL! I Love Demi!

TGV. =)

Tanjong Golden Village. That's the name of the entertainment cum cinema industry I'm currently in. :)


   Not including today, I've worked for 4 days here in TGV. Overall, I could say this is a whole new sight on life for me. Being in the customer service-entertainment line, it is not an easy job, but it's fun though! ;DDD  By far, the only thing that bothers me is the tiredness of returning home late at night. You see, I'm on night shift everyday, 4pm-11pm. By the time I arrive home, it's around 12 midnight already, so I will go straight to bed. No night life for me huh? Never mind. This is temporary. Be patient. =)

   My colleagues are so cool! I really like working with them. I'm the youngest there I suppose. Haha. And I don't get bullied okayyy. Haha. They are really helpful and caring, so yeah, in 2 days time I felt like I've worked there for 2 months. I blend in fast, don't I? Too fast maybe? Haha.

   I must say, I'm frustrated to have to handle the ticket box (the counter where you all purchase the tickets) for straight 4 days! Argh. I want to be placed either in the candy bar or floor in the nearest time soon. Hope so! I want to learn as much as possible. It's the experience that matters, not the money. If I lose something and gain back something better, I'd love it! ;)))

   So, yeah. Next month will be Ramadhan. I will try my best to request to work on day shifts. I wouldn't want to miss my terawih prayers. :)

   That's all for now peeps! If you happen to come across TGV KLCC, and see me working, come greet me and say hi okie? Heeee. =D

P/S : I've got an interview at PPUKM this Tuesday. Wish me and my friends good luck! Insya-Allah. Hoping for the best future. ;D

Hati. =)

Dalam setiap badan manusia itu ada seketul daging, jika baik daging itu maka baiklah keseluruhannya, jika buruk daging itu maka buruklah keseluruhannya. Itu adalah HATI.

Hati. Umpama raja dalam diri. Kawallah raja itu, agar setiap masa bersama Ilahi, moga nanti badan bergerak seperti seorang manusiawi.

A quote taken from iluvislam.com : Ayuh Proses Hati.


P/S : Lets clean our hearts, lets be good muslims. Its about time to reflect on the bad things we did and repent right away. Insya-Allah. May Allah give us the strength and courage to change to the better. Especially me. Amin. :D

Tuesday, 12 July 2011

Work. Hee. :D

Assalam. :)

Yes! I've finally got the chance to work. No, it's not too late. Never a thing will be too late to begin. :)

   I will start working tomorrow (Wednesday). What kinda job? I will be a CRO (Customer Relations Officer) at TGV KLCC. Heee. Do come and give me a visit okie? I will be on night shifts. The pay is kinda good, that doesn't matter though, all I want is experience and new skills. Insya-Allah, I believe I will obtain much of those by the end of the month. :D


   By the way, am still waiting for the Eire interview results. If not, I have to attend the 19th July interview at PPUKM, Cheras. Hope to hear good news. Insya-Allah.

   Last week was spent with my family, I loved it. I will try to maximize my time with my family instead of my friends, not to say I don't want to hang out with you guys, its just that my family are more important to me right now. After entering Medical School later on (Insya-Allah), I will not get to spend this much time at home already. So, appreciate your family and cherish every moment you have with them. I love my family! ;D

P/S : Good Luck with the Eire interview results, peeps! ;)

Untuk Renungan. =)


“Dulu sebelum kalian ada seorang lelaki yang membunuh sembilan puluh sembilan orang, sehingga dia bertanyakan tentang orang yang paling alim di kalangan penduduk bumi. Mereka menunjukkannya kepada seorang rahib (ahli ibadah), kemudian orang tersebut mendatanginya dan berkata bahwa dia telah membunuh sembilan puluh sembilan orang. Apakah masih ada kesempatan baginya untuk bertaubat? Rahib tadi berkata: “Tidak.” Orang itu lalu membunuhnya, sehingga genap menjadi seratus orang. Kemudian dia bertanya tentang penduduk bumi yang paling alim. Maka ditunjukkan kepadanya seorang alim. Dia berkata kepadanya bahawa dia telah membunuh seratus orang. Apakah masih ada kesempatan baginya untuk bertaubat? Orang alim tersebut menjawab: “Ya! Dan siapakah yang mampu menghalang antaramu dengan taubat. Pergilah ke negeri ini dan itu, kerana di sana ada orang-orang yang beribadah kepada Allah Ta’ala. Beribadahlah bersama mereka, dan jangan kembali ke negerimu karena negerimu adalah negeri yang jelek.” Kemudian orang itu pergi tetapi di tengah-tengah perjalanan dia meninggal. Lalu malaikat rahmat dan malaikat adzab saling berselisih tentangnya. Malaikat rahmat berkata: “Dia datang dalam keadaan bertaubat, menghadap Allah.” Malaikat azab berkata: “Dia belum beramal shalih sama sekali.” Kemudian datanglah kepada kedua malaikat itu seorang malaikat dalam bentuk manusia. Mereka (kedua malaikat itu) menjadikannya sebagai pemutus urusan mereka. Malaikat itu berkata: “Ukurlah antara dua negeri tersebut. Mana yang lebih dekat (jaraknya dengan kedua negeri itu) maka itulah lebih berhak.” Mereka kemudian mengukurnya. Ternyata mereka dapati bahwa dia (orang yang mati itu) lebih dekat ke negeri yang baik. Maka malaikat rahmat mengambilnya.” 

- Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim -

P/S : Janganlah sesekali berputus asa. Insya-Allah. ;)

Hello! :D


Meet Mr. Green Teddy. Heee. :D

Life is A RACE to be WON!

Imagine yourself sprinting in a 100 metre race. You are currently at the 80 metre marking point, and you are about to win. 20 more metres and you will win! But, with the exhaustion in your legs, you seriously feel that you cannot continue up to the finish line. Not even the cheers from your fans could help you replenish the energy of your muscles. What actually goes through your mind at that very point?

   If I were that athlete, this is what I would have in mind :
"20 more metres, and the winning trophy will be mine. Lets give the race all out, despite of the pain and cramp I will suffer later on. I've worked such a long distance, why can't I put a little bit more afford in completion of the 20 metres? Go, girl! Go get that finish line you've always dreamed of! You can do it. Your fans had cheered for you, and lets not crush their big hopes for you. Sprint!"



Now, lets apply that imagination on this real life. For example, in the very situation I'm facing right now.

   Yea, the reality is I failed to get through the first interview with the Irish. But, it's not over yet. Alhamdulillah, I still have my second chance with the Irish and I've got a backup. The race is still on. Like the race I've mentioned earlier on, even though you are full in fatigue-ness, and thinking of the bad consequences that you will face later on, you must go on, continuing the race, because it's not over yet! Trying your best is the best option you have at this very moment. Optimism is what I need. "Will I be sad and heart-broken again, if I don't get through this time?" Lets just set that thought aside for the meantime. =)

   And the hopes of the fans represents your family and friends' hope for you. You don't want them to be sad and see you giving up too soon right? So, think of yourself, your family, friends and most importantly Allah swt. Allah don't like to see us giving up too soon. Always be on the stronger side of yourself. Insya-Allah. ;D

 Before I end my point of view, one more crucial thing. Sometimes, when people try to drag down your emotions, fight back! Show them that you can win too! :D 

P/S : I am writing this to inspire myself for the second interview, this coming 5th July. Because I am kinda in the lazy mood to study for the interviews right now. Hahaha. Hope it could inspire you in anything you do in life. ;)

The honesty straight from my heart. =)

Assalammualaikum wbt.

Today, I would like to let out my honestest opinion on myself. :)

   Alright. Lets begin.

First of all, I honestly am confused of myself at times. Sometimes, I am being the always-up-to-date girl. I socialize too much, yea I do, I admit. I always know it's wrong to socialize too much, it's haram in Islam, but I do not understand why I can't resist that feeling of continuing it. Sometimes, I feel my Iman is weaking, and sometimes it bounces back to be higher than usual. So, you could see how confused I am now, right? :S

   There are times when I feel of changing myself. A change towards the better. Being a better muslim. Controlling what I do and socialize in. But, there are times when I myself couldn't control my emotions and start doing the wrong things. May Allah show me the right path. Subhanallah. =/

   The point here is, I need some guidance on the right path, to enable myself to do the things in Allah's way, the right Islamic way. Insya-Allah, I hope to find a person who really can guide me throughout this life and live a blessed life to head to Jannah. Insya-Allah. Amin. May Allah give me the strength to change me. :D


P/S : This time around, I have higher faith and stronger Iman to be a little better. Thanks to the incidents of life this week, it taught me to be stronger. This post is sincerely from my heart. Let it speak for this once. :)

Allahu Akhbar. =')

If this seems like a sad story to you, you are pathetically heartless mean. Haha.

I did not lose. I've learnt instead. I've learnt so many things that I couldn't even possibly have learnt without falling and feeling on the verge of giving up. There stood my family and friends, cheered me and tried to lift my spirit back up. I stood wondering, wanted to give up at first. But then, something in me woke up and fought back, which is - The spirit that had been long dead since the news of Ireland came into my consciousness. I'm grateful to be given a chance to fall, this breaks my ego. Alhamdulillah. :)

Hereby, I announce. The full-spirited Aisha is back. The fight is not over till I graduate from Medical School. Insya-Allah, I will remain patience regardless of what anybody says of me. I am me, yes I'm not perfect, but the right thing to do is never the wrong thing. Yea, sometimes I do speak my mind. If you hate me, only Allah could judge you. Do whatever you like, but never hesitate to give me constructive criticism, because I would love to improve myself from time to time. Thank you. Pray for my best. Insya-Allah. Allah always know whats best for me and you. ;)

Repeatedly it goes.

Repeatedly the same things go about in my life. Every year. No regrets. Just the feeling of being crushed over and over again. I am not that strong after all, am I?

Thank you friends for trying to lift up my spirit back, but I think it's about time to stop it. Ireland is not for me and that shall be it. Fullstop! I'm tired of trying to be optimistic. Tired of trying to be the best. Tired of all the lies in life. Tired of doing things with sincerity, but been accused of bad intentions. Tired of the hard relationships to keep.  Sometimes, I prefer to be left all alone, because I'm tired. T-T

P/S : Friends please do not let my emotions affect your spirit okie? Go on fighting, but I can't be with you. =')

Feeling out of the League. ='(

Giving up is so not me. But, I am created by Allah to feel weak. I am a normal human being too. Frankly speaking, I do feel like giving up right now. But, thinking of the afford I've put in for more than a year, and my parents' high hopes on me, NO! I cannot just let things slip out of my hand that easily without trying. So now, I will try my best to get hold of it. Insya-Allah. The decision and fate is all with Allah. He decides best. =')

Saturday, 25 June 2011

Errrr.

I feel exhausted. Mentally and physically. Nothing much to say on the BTN programme. Hoping for something great to happen in the coming days. That's all I could say for now. Good Luck! I need to rest, before more tasks pops out onto my life. Tata. :)

My Solo Adventure to the Merlion City. ;)


Throughout this year, I've been travelling solo a lot. Penang, Kelantan and etc. But this trip is by far the most adventurous trip I've been to. So, I would like to share it with you all. Enjoy the pics followed by the experience. Hehe. ;)




The costly new built TBS terminal in Bandar Tasik Selatan. Bigger and more advanced than the newly built Puduraya though. :)

11 June 2011, Saturday.
   Travelled from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan in Bandar Tasik Selatan to the neighbouring city of lights, via an express bus, at 4pm with my dad. Arrived in the center of Singapore City around 9pm, after having to go through 2 hours of Malaysian and Singaporean checkpoints =.=! Finally, after having our supper tapau-ed at one of the famous Briyani and Murtabak restaurant, my dad and I headed to Boon Lay (my auntie's apartment) via the MRT. It was a long trip from Raffles Place to Boon Lay dude, 1 hour plus plus. Tiring much, but luckily the MRT was fast and air-conditioned. We ate and had our good night rest. ;)

12 June 2011, Sunday.
   Early in the morning, after doing our Subuh prayers, we started packing. Packed and loaded the stuffs on the rented lorry. My 70 year old auntie was to move back to Bedok, our original house, because she had just lost her husband. He past away of heart-attack at work recently. Inalillahi wainnaillahi raji'un. May Allah bless his soul.
   And, we packed, and loaded. Three trips had to be made, and I was in-charge of unpacking the stuffs at Bedok. Wosh, it was a super-tiring job! From morning till night. Waaaaaaaa. =.=

13 June 2011, Monday.
   Still we were unpacking the stuffs. Went back to Boon Lay to pick up a few things and headed back to Bedok to continue the journey of unpackinggggg. =.='
   Before going to Boon Lay, we had had our lunch near the Tampines Mall. Went to SingTel (kinda like our Telekom Malaysia) in Tampines Mall, in order to fix a telephone line at our Bedok house. :)




The Woodlands checkpoint and the Causeway Point Mall opposite the Woodlands MRT station. :)

14 June 2011, Tuesday.
   A little more of the unpacking. My dad went back to KL on today's evening. I followed him till Woodlands checkpoint and I went back to Bedok by MRT and bus. Interchange here, interchange there, there I go... From this point onwards, I was all by myself. Yeah! The real adventure starts the following day! ;)


15 June 2011, Wednesday.
   The whole adventure of mine was totally 100% via bus and MRT trains only, plus most of my journey are on foot alone. I love walking! Heee. FYI, MRT stands for Mass Rapid Transit. It includes buses, taxis and train services. You don't really need a car to travel in Singapore, because the country is fully organized and everywhere there is an easy route to get to. Thus, train and bus alone are the best transport for everyone here. I love their system, as it reduces the amount of cars in the country that reduces traffic jams and indirectly has its impact in reducing air pollution. ;)

   Okay, lets see where i went and what i did on this particular first day of my solo adventure. :D







The beautiful Bedok Reservoir Park located right across my apartment building. Beautiful ain't it? ;)

   Early in the morning, I started my adventure with fresh-filled air. Went to the beautiful Bedok reservoir park near to my apartment block. Walked around the reservoir and took some pictures of them. One of the most beautiful parks I've been to. I wish Malaysia could built and maintain lots of these here. Owh please? =/

   My very next stop was Changi Airport. A good adventure requires an organized plan, and it all had to start off with a good understanding of the places of interest. So, I went all the way to Changi Airport to get maps and brochures from the airport's Tourism Centre. And seriously, I took lots of them. Next, I had my all time favourite Mee Rebus at Bedok Interchange and headed back home for Zohor. Whenever you are in Singapore, you MUST try the Briyani, Murtabak, Mee Rebus and all the other famous foods there. Its a MUST! Yum yum. (I'm gonna gain a lot weight if I continued staying in Singapore. Haha.)



Bugis Street. The real shopping heaven! Looking over-crowded right? Hee. Just like our very own Petaling Street in KL. ;D

   After resting and flipping through the brochures, I decided to go on a short shopping adventure on Bugis Street. Hee. What I bought? It's a secret. :P If I were to compare the shopping capacity between S'pore and Malaysia, I would say Malaysia is a lot cheaper. The clothes, the souvenirs, the EVERYTHING lahhh, is way cheaper in Malaysia. But, if you are working in Singapore, with that kind of salary and currency, nothing in Singapore is expensive to you. The problem was, my head kept on converting between the currencies. Expensive much dude. =.=' So, I window-shopped most of the time in order to search for the best thing to shop for. Hehe. This is called a "budget-shopping". Huhu. :P

16 June 2011, Thursday.
Alright! The next exciting adventure day. :)
   Guess what? I actually went to Sentosa Island finally! After having travelled to Singapore almost every year since I was a kid. Yeah, I usually return to Singapore during festive eves like Hari Raya. Because, my arwah grandma used to live in Singapore. I miss my BabaMa, that's how we address her as. May Allah bless your soul. =')










































From Vivo City to Sentosa Island. The pictures tell a better story of the beauty of the wonderful island. ;)

   The day was kicked off with about 1 hour ++ trip from Bedok to Harbour Front by MRT, there situated a mall called Vivo City. From Vivo City, I chose to walk on the Sentosa Board Walk. Entrance fee is only $1 per person. Not as expensive as what I've been told. Haaa. You can also board the monorail from Vivo City to Sentosa, I board the monorail on my way back. Free. Hee. :D

   Yeah, walking about 1 kilometre into Sentosa via Board Walk is kinda tiring, but I'm glad to have to feel the sea breeze and got a chance to slowly ingest the view of Sentosa across the sea. Hee. ;D Above are the pictures of the journey. Enjoy it. The beaches, the buildings, the people. All was AWESOME! ;) 

   I wanted to enter the well-known Universal Studios of Singapore, but enjoying the fun alone in there isn't exciting. So, I will spare the trip with my family next time. Insya-Allah. ;D

   But, that wasn't the end of the day. I still had some time, so I decided to give the Funan DigitaLife Mall and then Clarke Quay a visit. ;)











Clarke Quay is best visited at night. It is the most happening place for the Europeans. Bars and steamboats. Happening nightlife. :)

   What interest me most at Clarke Quay was the G-Max Ride. I will ride it next time, next trip to Singapore. $30 student price. Heee. Lets go peeps? I guarantee you, it's more awesome than Solero in Genting. Adrenaline pumping games, I loike! Heeee. :D

17 June 2011, Friday & 18 June 2011, Saturday.
   I did nothing much these two days. Stayed home to take care of my auntie. She had her vertigo attack suddenly, so I had to look after her. Hurm. Saturday morning, which is yesterday, I decided to head back to KL, as I have to attend a brain-wash camp BTN tomorrow. =.='


The conclusion of the solo adventure? AWESOME. Now, I have my full confidence on being independent. I believe if I were to be dumped anywhere in the world, Insya-Allah I'm confident I'll survive well. ;)

This trip has really brought some new learning experience to me. Communication skills are seemingly improving, as I had to speak English and Mandarin most of the time in Singapore. I met a lot of foreigners and had some time to exchange a little bit of infos. Indonesians, Pinoys, France ( I met a France dude on my way to Sentosa. Hehehe. :D). Singapore is truly an international country! I admire the system much. Especially the organized and disciplined society. ;D

And I've learn a whole lot of other new things in life. Thanks to the trip. :)

I really hope I will get more chances to travel abroad. Hoping Ireland will be one of the destination of my exploration. Insya-Allah. Praying hard to give them the best out of me in this second chance. :)

P/S : I am off to BTN camp starting tomorrow up to Friday. Get ready to get brain-washed by the government. Woahhhh. =S
