Hello fellow readers...!!! I know it's been ages since I updated my blog. I don't know, I felt like I didn't have much thing to write while I was on my holiday. Well, scratch that. I should say I was on my semester break, because I think using the word "holiday" suits you going on a vacation. Hurm, maybe. I don't know.

Well actually as I write this I don't really know what to say. I am just updating this blog because I feel sorry for my blog as I've been neglecting it for a long time. Last time I abandoned my blog was in late 2007 and I didn't blog for the whole of 2008 because I just didn't feel like blogging anymore. When I got to ASASI in July 2009, suddenly I had the urge to blog again. I was thinking grammar and writing were vital aspects in learning English so I thought by lightning up my blog again will enable me to have a better English proficiency.

Speaking of English proficiency, I just remembered that I had gotten my result last week. Yes, the result of the first part of my study in B.Ed TESL. I only got 3.20 this semester. I felt okay with my result but there were some parties that thought having much better result than me was not good at all. I knew they didn't get in the Dean's list but couldn't they just be grateful for what they got? It's normal anyway, people can never be grateful for what they have. It's never enough.

I somehow thought it was ridiculous for me to even pass. If you were a loyal reader of mine, you would know how I ranted about those extremely difficult papers that I had to answer. I knew that I would pass TITAS, Linguistics and Literature, but I wasn't so sure about GnC and HDoE because they were a total disaster! It turned out that I got A- for TITAS, B+ for GnC and HDoE, B for my Linguistics and Literature and B- for National Kesatria. 

Frankly, I was shocked myself. TITAS was the only course where I never stayed awake and listened to the lecture. The course has already bored me to death, let alone the lecturer and his lectures. Well, thank goodness that my lecturer gave me an A for this. I think the reason I got an A for this course was because I did my very best in my presentation. Even though I presented it in Malay, I think I aced it. I thought I would fail GnC adn HDoE because they were damn hard but apparently I worried for nothing because I got better results than Linguistics and Literature, the two courses that I felt okay.

Well, I think this is it. It's a wake up call for me to be more serious next semester. I hope even given my result turned out to be a so-so, I hope I can get into the Dean's list next semester. I can do it...!!!

It's a wrap...!!! That's the end of Part 1 of B.Ed TESL. We closed the curtain by finishing our very last paper, TSL420 a.k.a Literature in English. The paper was not that bad after all as this was the only course where I saw a lot of people finished their paper early, maybe because the paper was easy...???

Well, I don't think I can say the same about me. It was easier compared to other papers but nothing was easy as you go towards the end of Part 1. Yeah, I think we were spoiled by the circumstances. The circumstance where we honeymooned too much this semester.

So this is it. The holiday has already started and I postponed posting this entry because a really close friend of mine had just lost his beloved sister due to breast cancer. Our condolences is for him and his family. May Allah bless the soul of his sister and place her with those who are in the virtue. Amiin. Al-fatihah.

Owh my...!!! I finally finished 4 out of 5 papers for my exam this semester. After 2 disastrous papers back-to-back which made me feel like dying, linguistics paper turned it all around and I'm really grateful for that...!!!

The night before the exam, I downloaded the previous semester's question paper. I felt like stabbing myself with a knife when I discovered the format of the question, and what kind of questions will be asked. I started to get a little paranoid. I was afraid that my fate will end up the same just like GnC and HDoE. I was thinking that I will fail this semester. I just didn't have the confidence anymore.

Well, it all turned around when I opened the question booklet during the exam. Apparently, there was a lot of questions that I could answer. Some question I couldn't recall in Part B, and I chose to answer 3 questions that I can remember. Till I was in Part C, 2 questions that must be answered and I didn't have a clue what were the questions asked. The terms in the question were alien to me. But I answered them anyway, hope Madam Rose won't be crying blood when she sees my answers.

Okay, here's the best part. My stomach got upset in the 10th minute of the exam. I couldn't get out of the hall because rule has it I can only get out of the exam hall only after 30 minutes after the exam starts. I have finished all my multiple choice questions by then. I looked at the clock hanged on the wall, it was 9.15am. So, I started writing my answer for Part B.

I kept on writing when the next time I looked at the time it was already 9.35am. Yeay...!!! I took my saline solution, the contact lens liquid and wrote my name in the temporary exit form. I went out and noticed that the female lecturer followed me from behind.I knew that every time a student goes out of the exam hall, the invigilating lecturer must follow them to wherever he/she goes. So, I didn't really mind she following me.

I went into the toilet and chose the "sitting" kind of cubicle. So, I got down to business answering the nature's call. Suddenly, I heard a female voice from outside of the toilet. "Are you okay in there?" she said, half shouting. I was stunned. Numbed. Flabbergasted. Perplexed. No...!!! There is no adjective that can describe what I felt back then. I was so shocked that the lecturer would even ask me whether I was okay or not. A FEMALE LECTURER. What was she thinking? What would I be doing in the toilet, in the cubicle? Owh my...!!! I didn't know what to do but my mouth just utter the word "YES" loudly, so she could hear me. 

As I got out from the cubicle, I saw her waiting outside of the toilet. She didn't see me, so I went to the sink and washed my hands. I put a few drops of saline solution into both of my eyes, reconditioning it to avoid my eyes became dry. I got out of the toilet and she asked me, "Are you okay?" I said "Yes, I just had to re-wet my eyes." while showing her the saline solution in my hand. I saw her went into the toilet as I climbed the stairs. Maybe she suspected me copying notes in the toilet while I was actually SHITTING. Well, that's me. I always spend a lot of time if I were to be in the toilet. I entered the hall, signed my name on the form and continued answering the paper.

Frankly speaking, this is one hell of an experience. I wouldn't feel anything if it was a male lecturer who followed me and asked me that question, but it became really odd, weird and awkward because it was a female lecturer who did that. Luckily, I didn't really know who she was and I rarely see her at the faculty. Phew!

I'm currently reading Black Beauty written by the poor Anna Sewell. I've just read 4 chapters and it has been really getting on my nerves because it's so boring. I can't do anything because it's in the syllabus. I can't wait to finish reading the novel so I can start reading the book that I bought weeks ago, Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero which is still unwrapped because I don't want to lose focus during my exam.

Better get going now, the green book of Black Beauty is waiting for me. Until next time...!!!

Another paper has been taken care of...!!! I'm currently waiting for somebody to get out of the batroom because I'm waiting for my turn to take my shower.

Well, I can say that this paper was freaking hard as well, but not as disastrous as GnC. This paper required me to write a lot, I mean, A LOT of essays. I must tell you, I answered this paper without much enthusiasm. I don't know is it just me or both EDU courses, GnC and HDoE are effing hard as hell...!!! I mean, I did my revision but nothing seem to come to avail from my mind. I didn't managed to pour my idea right. (T__T)

Again I hope Mr. Rizal would be merciful enough to mark our paper with patience and virtue. I'm so stressed out right, it's the aftermath of both papers. I think I sucked, big time...!!!

Click to enlarge

By the way, we have gotten our carry marks. I got 34 out of 50 marks. means that I only have to score 6 more marks to at least pass. Well, obviously I don't just want to pass the paper with the minimum marks, I would love to score Linguistics. That is the reason why this entry is a short one because I have to get back to my book and squeeze my brain for linguistics skills.

So, I have to go now. Wish me luck for tomorrow's Linguistics paper. Talk (write?) to you later...!!!

Owh my goodness...!!! I've been bitten by ants...!!! I can't stand it...!!! It makes my body itchy...!!!

Since I moved in to this house, I've never been bitten by ants before but not today. They attacked me like I was a feast. Hello little ants, don't you realize it takes more than just your little mandibles to take me down...??? (-___-)"

I can assure you, compared to mosquito bites, ant bites are more exasperating. Well, I'm not saying I'd rather been bitten by mosquitoes but I prefer to be bitten by NONE...!!! I'm scratching my whole body as I write this entry. I hope I can find the source of the ants and destroy them. I don't think I need to plant insecticide whatsoever.

I hope I can have a good sleep tonight. I will kill you soon, you little ants...!!!

See this picture above? This is how I felt when I got out from Cendana hall, where the exam for GnC took place. Instead of feeling good after finished answering the paper, I think I'm the one who needs the counseling now. (-___-)"

I would say, I underestimated this course. What we have learned in the book was nothing like it was questioned in the exam earlier today. I just didn't get what the question actually wanted. Things like I have never learned before. Seeing a past year question the night before the exam made me feel like I have learned nothing while I was in the first semester of B.Ed TESL.

Most of the questions were application base question. Given the circumstances, I have never prepared myself from that kind of question before. I mean, for this course only. Frankly speaking, I felt stupid when I was writing down my answers on the paper. I slept a few times wishing miracles to happen, like some sort of "hidayah" would come and give me answers but to no avail. I looked at everyone around me, they seemed to have no problem writing answers. I even saw somebody asked for extra answer booklet, Motif...???

So, it turned out that most of us didn't really know what we were writing. I couldn't even explain what was Eclecticism. I wrote this on my paper, "Eclecticism is ...", literally. It reached to the extent where I couldn't even "goreng" anything because I was so fucked up. Yeah, I never use cursing words in my daily life but this affected my mind now. (-___-)"

So, I'm shutting myself down for today. Tomorrow, I'll be working hard revising HDoE and Linguistics (I hope...!!!). I wish Mdm Sharifah will have LOADS of mercy when she marks our paper later...

Here we go again. Just like last semester, I posted an entry for every paper taken for the final exam. I should be revising my GnC but I just can't get my mind off of this entry that has been postponed a few days now.

So, our first paper was Islam & Asian Civilizations or usually called as TITAS. This paper is taught and examined by using our mother tongue, Bahasa Malaysia. I was pretty anxious about this paper because everybody knows that things that have something to do with history are not my forte, so let alone TITAS. I had problems with memorizing history facts, even thought I have the ability of remembrance. I just can't because history facts are boring. Given the circumstance, answering this paper on last Thursday was not that bad after all.

The paper consists of 40 multiple choice questions and 3 essays which only 2 needed to be answered. Practically, the paper was all about Islamic Civilization with 2 to 3 questions ONLY about Chinese and Indian Civilizations. I think they should just change the course name into something else because they're not doing these 2 civilizations any justice for doing that. Having said that, I actually felt grateful because 95% of the questions in the paper was all about Islamic Civilization which what I've known since I was able to differentiate between the dos and don'ts.

After finished with this paper, I had a little more faith in me about passing this paper, I seriously thought that I would fail this paper but not anymore. If I'm not getting an A, I know that I'll pass.

So, I'll be sitting for EDU430, Introduction to Guidance & Counseling or people usually called as GnC. I don't know why all EDU courses aren't my friend this semester. Well, I better get going now. GnC notes, here I come...!!!

Chill peeps...!!! Don't be scared. I know how much all of you care for Iz Rijap, but he doesn't have dengue fever for the 2nd time. No, not this time. 

As a matter of fact, it was my elder brother who got suspected for dengue fever. Yes, past tense everyone. He has been cleared from the disease hence made him a free man now. 

It all happened when I was writing (more like TYPING) my previous entry. While I was working on the thing, my brother got home from work and looked like he was just hit by a truck or something. He approached me and suddenly asked me about the symptoms of dengue. So, I told him what I've been through. First off I had a fever, a really high temperate one. Then, when I felt like I was okay I begin to lose my appetite, towards rice exactly. I could consume anything (forcibly) except for rice. I guess my body was telling me how much American I'd become. Okay, cut the crap! I also told him that before I was diagnosed with dengue, the last thing to show up was rashes-like redness. It was not a rash, more like the blood started to surface up to my skin.

So, I took a look at his skin and I saw some rashes-like redness on his thigh, close to his knee. The moment I saw it I could tell that it was dengue symptom. The fact that he has been having a fever for 6 days now made me more sure of it. So, I ended up bringing him to his panel clinic. So, I followed him into the consultation room where I met a weird-accented female doctor. I couldn't make out what she was actually saying and where is she coming from but I figured she is a Chinese, but I have never encountered Chinese people like her.

I can say that the doctor somehow incompetent, because she had to stick the needle to 3 places on my brother to get enough blood sample to make the blood test for platelet counts. I pitied my brother for having to experience that, considering his skinny build which didn't help when the doctor stuck the needles into his right arm, the back of his right palm and left arm.

So, we waited for the result for the whole day today. He got a call at 2pm and the nurse on the line told him that his platelet counts was at 152 and as far as I can remember I was hospitalized because my platelet counts was below 90. So, he's a free man now. He has MC for today, but he's gotta pull himself together today because he needs to go back to work tomorrow.

Owh my, I'm so starving. Hah, so much for not having dinner. I guess I can't do that for the time being. The starvation is killing me. I'm off for now. Catch all of you fellow readers later okay...!!!

Hey there fellow readers...!!! Long time haven't read my entry I guess.Yeah, life has been never better. There's no superlative word can describe how happy I am with my life right now. If you see me around, you'll catch me smiling alone. Well, I don't think I really have to put what actually happens right now into words because I know anyone who's reading this entry could possibly guess right now. Wanting to know the identity of the person who manages to brighten my day? Well, let's keep it anonymous for now okay?

I'm now enjoying my study leave. I think the week is literally to leave your study before going for the final exam. NOT...!!! I really need to get going and read my TITAS textbook, because that's the first paper. Luckily there are gaps between papers, except for HDoE and Linguistics because they are back to back paper for 2 consecutive days. So, I'll be studying more and more after this.

So, talking about major upgrades (as stated in the title above), I had finally terminated my Celcom Broadband which used to cost me RM98 and I have resubscribed to another Celcom Broadband which now cost me RM68. The reason of this sudden change is because I've been feeling quite burdened by the cost of paying the bills as I'm also using BlackBerry right now which cost me more and more. So, I've come up to a solution where I decreased the speed of my broadband which also decrease the monthly bills that I've had to pay so I can use the extra money which I saved from paying the bills to buy food, or even topup for my BB.

Since I'll not be using any cars for the next few months, I think I can use that time to save up. Yeah, I've returned the kancil back to my cousin because it was such a problematic car and the only car that I have right now is Proton Saga, which belongs to my brother (note that the car was bought under his name but using my COMPETENT DRIVING LICENSE) will be lent to his BELOVED girlfriend since she doesn't have a transportation to go work, so I'm told.

Now, I still don't know what to do during my semester break. I'll have one months plus and I'm not sure if I want to use that period of time to work or just enjoy the holiday. Money is always the issue for me, for my lifestyle to be exact.

I guess I better go because my tummy has played Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Gotta go and buy Nasi Lemak Jati. Gonna make full use of the Proton Saga, while I still have it.

Sweet anticipation
It's giving me the butterflies
And my heartbeat's racing
Because loving you is beautiful
When you're so irresistible

So don't stop
What you're doing baby
So good
And it drives me crazy
One touch
I'm in heaven
Because loving you is so beautiful baby

You are all I need to get me through
Like a falling star I fell for you
You have taught me how to love
An angel sent from high above
Now I know that all I need is you

Before I knew what love was
I always ended up in tears
It's just the way my world was
Until you walked into my life
It's something that I just can't hide

Real love
Has come my way
And I know
That it's here to stay
And it feels
Like never before
Because loving you is so beautiful baby

You're my inspiration
My world just seems a brighter place
I just wanna tell you
I've never ever felt this way
I've never thought I'd see the day

You are all I need to get me through
Like a falling star I fell for you
You have taught me how to love
An angel sent from high above
Now I know that all I need is you

I specially dedicate this to YOU, you know who you are...I love you...!!!

I'm currently listening to Alicia Keys featuring Beyonce song, Put It in a Love Song. I think this is a great song, a type of song that I would love to dance to. The beat is just so tempting. Feel like I wanna get up from the chair that I'm sitting on right now and pull out all those daring and sexy dance moves. Hah! I just can't wait to find the opportunity to do that someday, on stage preferably.

From the past few days, I've been hearing a lot of rumors. Rumors about people used to be in a relationship, rumors about how people aren't as innocent as they seem, rumors about how the people have changed 360 degrees, and so much more. Last week, I thought my gossiping skills have degraded but apparently my skills have never been better. I'm back people! The Iz you've known all this while has come back with brand new techniques to gossip, ethically.

I have a different way of gossiping, that's why I'm an expert in it. I only gossip about things that are 100% confirmed true. I won't be going around spreading rumors if it's not true because I would hate that very much if that were to happen to me. So, golden rule people. Don't do to others what you don't want others do to you. I love gossiping, I hate being in the realm of not knowing what's happening around me. That's why I would do anything to investigate about the truthfulness of the story that I've been told.

I heard that the people from the other campus (I don't wanna mention which one, but obviously not Shah Alam) have been pulling some extreme stunts. They always skip classes, asked people to cover for them, breaking in to people's room, going through people's stuffs without the owner's permission and apparently some of them don't seem to care what are others perspectives about them because they thought that it's not really vital.

I still don't know if any of these are true, but I'm gonna get to the bottom of this. I don't want to judge them based on others' story about them. It's the matter of "he said, she said" actually. So, being the great gossiper as I am I won't report things that aren't true. I know some things are better left unsaid, but heck let's just do it shall we?

Somehow I miss Bombay when it comes to gossiping. He sure knows how to gossip well. There were loads of gossip we shared together during ASASI TESL. How I wish he would be here right now. I can just imagine his reaction about the whole thing.

Okay, I'm off for now. I have linguistics class with Madam Roslinda at 2.10pm. Gonna get the key, open the class and cool it off. Later...!!! (^__^)

Owh my goodness...!!! I just noticed it's been quite some time since the last time I updated my blog. I'm hoping that I can find more time to write about my life. Sometimes I wonder if there are people really interested in reading about my life. Guess what? They are! Well, I'm not sure if it's true but I've come to a discovery that even people from outer space (that's an exaggeration!) do read my blog. Maybe they stumbled upon my blog randomly when they were Google-ing about TESL. Who knows, right?

My busy university life has been made more hectic because of the house thingy. Yeah, I'm now living in a 3 roomed apartment. It's at the 1st floor of the building, and it's near to the block of stores at Section 17. The reason why we chose Section 17 is because it's near to our faculty. I don't want to upload any pictures of any parts of the house yet because things are still everywhere and haven't been tidied yet but I promise I'll show every part of the house once we have finished touching it up. For the time being, only Amir and I have completely moved in to the house. We're still waiting for Anas, Pokjak, Ijat, Kerey, Menyor and my brother.

Tomorrow, we'll be submitting out linguistics assignment. I had finished the assignmenst last week. I used the "be quiet!" poster posted in the INTEC library. Found 3 mistakes altogether and I hope they are enough to make Madam Roslinda give me flying colors. Adam had the sudden great idea of using my mistakes in my previous posts. I know I made a lot of grammatical errors in my previous posts and I think I still do, but not as much as before I get into ASASI TESL. Reading all those entries made me reminisced about all the bitter and sweet moment I had spent here in Shah Alam. It also made me realize that I have improved a lot since then. I used to think that my English was extraordinarily superb, but once I get myself into the program I felt so small, because I met a lot more people who have really great English proficiency. They helped me went through the resistances and suspicions of learning the language I love so much. Loving English doesn't mean that I love Malay less, so you can just save you breath from telling me how much "kacang lupakan kulit" I am for learning English. We are in the 21st Century for crying out loud, so suck it up and move on with your life.

Somehow I comprehended that every time I have a best friend in my life, it will backfire. I think I better off without any best friends at all. As far as I'm concerned, I'm not the one who's got the problem here because other friends are okay being friends with me. I think from now on I'm gonna mingle with more and more people.

I have registered my courses for the 2nd semester, which will start in December 2010. I'll be seeing some old faces, some new faces and some not-so-old-but-not-so-new faces as well. I think this is a great opportunity to mingle with more people. The final exam is rapidly approaching and I don't even know if I'm ready for it yet.

I think I better get some sleep now because I need it so badly, even though I can get extra sleep in TITAS class...Huhuhuh XD

Wouldn't it be wonderful if I have eyes like the picture above? I couldn't remember when was the last time I updated my blog. Well, with the Internet connection like hell I don't think I can update my blog as frequent as I used to.

Since I bought BlackBerry Storm2, I've been updating my status on Facebook non-stop till sometimes it's frustrating not being able to update my status using that device because Celcom has such a crappy service. Even I heard people are annoyed because I updated my status all the time. Well, I paid for the service baby so it would be such a waste if I don't use it. I don't even understand why do I still hold on to Celcom, still subscribing to its broadband service and everything.

I've disabled my emoticons. I haven't uninstalled the software yet, just in case if I want to use it again in the future. I don't know, maybe I'll be a boring blogger from now on. It's a handful to use that emoticon. Sometimes I would get my idea faded away while choosing for the right emoticon to use.

I actually wanted to write about my eye defects. Yes, plural people. Defects. Just so you know, I wear spectacles. I've been wearing glasses since I was 10. Since I finished high school, I've started to wear contact lenses.

I went to Giant in Section 13, the biggest Giant in Shah Alam. I went there with Anas and Pokjak right after we had lunch at Anjung Melur. My initial intention was to find an appropriate size of bag so that I can put my dirty laundry in it because I have to send them to the launders as all washing machines in Meranti broke down. I ended up buying a wire extension, a green mug and a green shopping bag which I used for putting my dirty laundry.

While I was walking around, I saw this one small corner where they set up an optical store. It says "free check-ups". I went there asking for the optician to check on my eyes. She said that my dazzle-sightedness (I'm not sure if this term exists) has increased tremendously to 150+. That explains why these past few days I've been feeling like all cars were giving me high beams whenever I drive at night. She also said my dazzle-sightedness may have increased because I wear contact lenses that only cater to my short-sightedness. She said that if I want to use contact lenses that cater to all my eye defects, I have to buy them for a price of RM100+ per pair and they only can be worn for only a month. Obviously, I don't have that kind of budget so I might as well just wear the current contact lens. She advised me to change to a new pair of glasses soon, because if I don't then my eye powers will continue to increase.

And just found that my blog is being viewed by Americans...!!! Owh my, I have never imagined this...!!! I found out about this through the new function in Blogger, where they help us to get viewers statistics. I wanna thank all of you who's been reading my blog till now. This gives me a new motivation to write more about my life as a TESL student...!!!

I'll write more, this I promise you...(^__^)

I am currently at Sepang, as we speak (or as I write and as you read). Finally, after a few days of single-handedness in the room B208 of Meranti college. What interests me the most was I've finally used GPS for the first time! Yeay! Well, what do you expect? I didn't have a car before this and using a GPS application was never a necessity. I used GPS to get me to Sepang, where my cousin house is situated. Well, Fafay and my cousin actually told me which route to use but it was my first time driving to Sepang so it wouldn't hurt with the help of GPS, right?

Before I departed from Shah Alam, I went to the nearest Bank Islam ATM machine. I was thinking of withdrawing some cash because I need to fill out the gas but I didn't have much with me. I slipped the card into the slot, keyed in my PIN number and opted to check on my balance. To my revelation, my account balanced had been increased to RM3k+, means that my PTPTN loan has been banked in. I was so excited, I squeaked like I always do when I get too thrilled. I'm happy...!!!

So, when I reached Sepang I suddenly had the urged to buy a baju melayu for myself. I haven't gotten myself a baju melayu so I figured since I've got the money now it wouldn't hurt to pamper myself a bit. I asked my family at home about our theme this year, and I was told that it was turquoise. Today, I went to Nilai Square with Sis Anie to look for it. When I got there, I was baffled to see 2 kinds of turquoise. One looked like blueish turquoise, and another looked like greenish turquoise. I took a picture of it and sent it to my elder sister, which turquoise should I buy because I didn't wanna get the wrong one.

So, I finally bought the greenish turquoise, the one on the left in the picture above. After looking around for quite some time, I finally chose to buy that. It cost me RM70, a discount price after RM99.90. I also bought golden diamond button to be paired with that newly baju melayu. The pants was quite long though, well I have never bought a pair of pants that really suit me in terms of length because I have a pair of short legs. The pants have to be altered but I don't know if I have the time because once I arrive at KK I'll immediately drive everybody to Mom's hometown in Papar. Since everybody can't drive (more like have the license but never drives), it all end up to me. Sometimes I just can't think how someone who has a driving license, who never drives thinks that she can tell me how to be a competent driver, literally. I'm way competent than anybody in the house who had been competent drivers (Dad excluded) because I never quit driving, even for one second. So, stop telling me how should I drive because you're no driver and I know you can't even move the car if it's in the 1st shift of a manual gear. Can't you see that your attitude has been the reason why people are staying away from you...???

Okay, there I go again, being emotional. Fine, I'm gonna stop these bad emotion and respire calmly because I don't wanna ruin the Eid mood. I think I'm gonna stop here and update another entry with loads of felicity of Eid Mubarak.

SeCReT ReCiPe, PLaZa MaSaLaM & i-CiTY...!!!

Since yesterday was the last day I was in Shah Alam in Ramadhan, I felt like taking a vengeance on my boredom that I've been through since everybody went home. See, I've been alone in the room B208 since a few days ago and I only watched As The World Turns, a lot...!!!

So I went to Secret Recipe and there I was sitting alone, wretched. While waiting for the waiter to get my order, I pulled out my Blueberry and logged on to Facebook reading people's status updates. When he came, I ordered Prawn Macaroni and Cheese, Shepherd's Pie and Iced Lemon Tea. Then suddenly the waiter asked me if I wanted to order for the other patron or I'll wait for him/her to arrive. I felt like I was struck by a lightning. I felt pathetic for going there breaking fast alone, but breaking fast alone in my room in Meranti was not an option. The waiter apologized for his mistake when I told him that I'll be having my meal alone.

So I quickly finished my meal, and get my hot ass out of there. I didn't know what to do so I went up and stepped inside MPH Bookstore. Found some new books but unfortunately I don't have enough money to buy them so I just went out of there. I paid my parking and in the spur of the moment, I suddenly wanted to go to Plaza Masalam. I remembered Niessa told me to look for Blackberry Storm2 there. Instead, I found iPhone 4 there...!!! The price was almost to RM4k and I think that I should just forget on getting that phone for myself. So, I'm sticking with Blackberry Storm2, which is more cheap than iPhone 4.

I left Plaza Masalam with nowhere to go. I arrived at Meranti with no parking available at that moment. I couldn't park at the parking box because I'll get summon ticket after 8 am the next day. So to kill the time, I suddenly have the urge to go to i-City. I was surprised to find out that I need to pay RM10 to enter. I was reluctant to pay for it but I paid it anyway. It was kind of creepy at the parking lot but I managed to find the entrance anyway. It was nice to be there, but I don't think it worth my Rm10 for going there because there was nothing special. So, here are the pictures.

I immediately went back to Meranti and this time I've gotten a parking in front of there. So tomorrow I'll be going to Sepang sending my brother for his flight to go back to Sabah. I'll stay there for a couple of days and then it'll be my time to fly back to Sabah. Can't wait to go back and celebrate Raya there. Hope it'll be different this time.

I went out to Sunway Pyramid (again) together with Amir, Anas, Pokjak, Daus, Kerey, Eta and Nad. For the first time in my life, I didn't go there to watch movies, but to solely go shopping. Before that, we played bowling and I lost to everyone. Since raya is just around the corner, I need to get myself a few things because I haven't been shopping for raya celebration for the past few years. Yeah, somehow I usually shop when there was no celebration.

So, I bought myself a checkered green button down shirt that I've been looking for since the past few months, 2 pairs of Renoma boxer-brief and a pair of green crocs. Not that much and I bought them right away because they were on sale.

Original Price: RM79.90
After Discount: 63.90

Original Price: RM35.90
After Discount: 32.50

Original Price with no discount: RM29.90

After finished shopping, we went to Secret Recipe to break fast. I ate Meatball Spaghetti and it was mouthwatering. Everybody was silent while having their meal, unlike usually people will make noises even when they were eating. All I could hear was the sound of the battle between the ceramic plates and the stainless steel cutlery.

So I'll be going back to Sabah in a few days time. I'm really looking forward to celebrating this year's raya with my family. It's not that I'm having a different perspective on how my family celebrate our raya, but I'm just giving it the benefit of the doubt. Besides, I hope that I can make it to visit my maternal grandparents because the last time I heard from Mom that they couldn't recognize people around them and they had to wear diapers.

Owh yeah, I would like to take this opportunity to wish Happy 53rd Independence Day to every Malaysian citizen who is currently reading my blog. May the peace and harmony in our country will last long and we treasure every moment of it.

Alright peeps, I need to go now. Hope all of you will have a very happy and nice Ramadhan month and a worthwhile Raya celebration coming soon.

Till we meet again...!!!

We had a blast in Sunway Pyramid...!!! Anas, Amir, Eija and I went there to watch the movie starred by Angelina Jolie, Salt. It was a great movie. We went window shopping after that, but ended up shopping anyway but Amir was the one who bought the most things. I only bought a pair of shades, a brand new hair product for my daily use and a pair of green boxer-brief. We had our fast breaking dinner at Fullhouse restaurant and it worth every penny because its delicacies were scrumptious. Well, let the pictures speak for
