Sweet Escape

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum peeps!

It's been a month since I last wrote on my blog. Apologising won't be enough. Truth is, I am so lazy to write down all the thoughts and babbles in my mind. These days I just sat down alone and ponder really hard about those random thoughts.

So I am to sit for my final examination in few days. I AM FINISHING MY FOURTH SEMESTER, PEOPLE! How time really flies. I feel like it was only last month I wrote about how my third semester went and now, I am about to babble about the end of my fourth semester.

The very next semester I will be choosing my major/concentration subjects! I am doing Bachelor of English (Hons) currently, so I have few options; Journalism, Public Relation, Creative Writing, Literature and TESOL. Lately, I am so interested to pursue creative writing but the lecturers are advising us to take TESOL as it has more job scopes. 

Anyway, put that aside. The real reason I'm writing is ..... (refer to the title above). How do you guys escape from things? I have always dreamed of relaxing by the pretty blue beach, under the shade of tall coconut tree, accompanied by mountain of tropical fruits and scrumptious foods. *wipe drools. Well, that's my dream. Initially. If not a beach or an island, I just want to be in some foreign places, quiet and peaceful, enjoying some me times. Haduh hah gittew. Berangan taknak kalah uols.

After five years of living in boarding school and now another four years in University, I appreciate the companionship given by my family. I started to see that no place can hold me calm and grant me happiness but home. No matter how exhausted I am, my heart will always rejoice at the sight of my parents and my family. I think that they are better option for sweet and short escape. Plus, they are free! Hahaha. 

Well, when you are home, you pay nothing to eat finger licking good foods and excellent companionship. Your siblings might annoy you, but that's why they are created. Hahaha. To annoy you. But seriously mannnnnn, there's no place as good as home. To wake up for your mother's endless lectures, your siblings' fights, that's definitely the best.

And as I grow up more, read more, I realise that the best thing to do is to always appreciate your life. Looking back, I notice how lucky I am to have a family. Not that we are rich or anything, but the fact that I have someone to love me with no condition comforts me in so many ways. For such beautiful gift, I thank Allah everyday. Home will always be the best place for short escape. :)

Till then.
Be good, do good. XOXO

My Parents are Getting Old

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum peeps.

It's been so long since I last post anything up on this dull blog. Now I feel like telling some stories. I was originally intended to write this on Facebook but hey, my mom is on Facebook. She can't know that I'm writing some melancholic things like this. I'll be teased by my parents till the day I die.

So, I just had my one week break. Every time I come back to uni from home, I like to think about random stuff en route to Kelaana Jaya all the way from Terengganu. I noticed that my parents are getting old and I am going to turn 21 anytime soon. It's not that I don't like the getting old process. I just don't like the idea of my parents getting old.

I grew up with a bookworm mother. She bought lot of novels, her favourite magazine is Majalah Seri Dewi dan Keluarga and she was always reading. I was used to seeing her reading in between cooking. You know like when shes cooking ayam masak merah and while waiting for the water to simmer down, she'll grab her novel and start reading.

Lately, when I offer to buy her favourite magazine she would recline saying that she is too old and her eyesight is not as excellent. But she's reading Facebook and Whatsapp conversations from tiny screen guys. Guess where the wonderful eyesight has gone to? -,-'. Anyway, that's not the point. The point is she's getting old and I'm still hoping that she will age slowly. Duh, what a waste sending me to MRSM. I can't even understand the concept of aging that will come to everyone (except those who die young). -,-'

Same goes to my father. He's getting old even faster than I could ever imagine. When I was still a toddler, I remember sending him off to kebun and he would give my brother and me 50 cent each. Shopping allowance back then sure is cheap. haha. Then we'll see him around noon before we went off to his small kedai kopi after Asar and come home late in the night. he was a busy bee and we always joke how he was busier than the PM.

Now my father still run his small kedai kopi except the kedai has moved to new location which is exactly next to my house. I don't really like the idea of my father has to work in his late 50 but at least he's working nearby the house and my mother is there to help as well. Alhamdulillah. He's grown soft over the edges too. hehe. He doesn't mind if I give him kisses on his cheeks now. I f I'm doing it few years before this, all I'm getting is a hard pushing over the face. My father is not a romantic man everyone. He's a man of few words and he don't express his love. Cute, innit?

All I 'm worrying about now if I will be ever granted the chance to shower them with some wealth and quality time. What if they say their eternal goodbye before I could even start pampering them? Why do aging has to be so fast and quick? Ergh. I pray to Allah that everyone of us will have the chance to live longer with our parents, cherish them and make them happy. My parents are the next best thing after Islam. I am really glad to have them. And I know, they are glad to have me too. :P

So melancholic and sentimental innit?
Be good, do good guys.
The End.

Third Sem is Done!

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum peeps!

Sooooo, I am done with my third sem. Ya Rabbi, Tuhan je tahu betapa happy dan gumbiranya hati ini menghabiskan sem ketiga degree. Towards the end of the sem tu, memang tersangatlah busy. I had to manage an event, a drama for our assignment the next day and an oral examination the day after the next day. kahkah. Pertama kali hidup terasa seperti pelajar unibasiti. Sebab sebelum ni hidup aku amatlah aman dan damai. kehkeh

 Semua student sepatutnya perform untuk event ni, tapi sebab kami kaki putar belit, berjaya jadi committee. Miahahaha.

 Habis kelas pun nak bergambar ke kak? Perempuan sangattt.

Bibi is not in the picture. But hey, everyone's looking genuinely happy!

Anyway, I had my last paper on 15th September 2015. But! But! But! As my friends and I were entering the hall, I sensed something's off but could not tell what it was. So I sat for my exam, answer quickly and get out from the hall (keluar awal masa exam tu benda biasa in my uni). Dah keluar, tunggu member lain siap lepas tu kitorang gerak gi makan. Macam biasa, masa makan tak pernah tak semangat. Tengah makan baru perasan apa yang off.


Tapi tak sempat gelabah, tengok member tu dah jalan dengan member sorang lagi. Semua kat meja lega like PHEWWWW. THERE HE WAS. HA! WE GOT NERVOUS FOR NOTH

'Cissss. Repeat! Aku overslept.' - fred

Semua macam dah tergamam. Nasi dah rasa pasir kat tekak. Cewah ni ayat novel sangat. Takde. Masa tu aku dah habis makan. Ayam pun tinggal tulang je hah. So kami terkebil kebil tengok dia dalam lima nam saat sebelum masing masing start fire soalan. Memang semua panic habis. Siapa tak panic. Miss final paper weh. Kau boleh relaks? Repeat satu sem 1000 ringgit. Matilah kau noks.

But in the end, everything was fine. He managed to sit for special examination. So no need to repeat the whole semester. Good for him and his financial. hahaha. Tapi memang rasa bersalah. Yelah, kawan kau miss final paper because of overslept. Ada enam orang kawan tapi satu pun tak teringat nak kejut. So sorry Fred! 

Tetiba dah takde benda nak ramble. Well, this sem is good. I've learnt a lot and I hope I've improved a lot too. Aamiin. Anyway, sesiapa ada suggestion nak bagi kurang selebet boleh la sumbangkang. hewhew. Dah masuk berapa sem dah serupa jugak tak lawanya. 

Till then. Be good, do good.

Treat People Like You Want to be Treated

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum peeps!

Sorry for the long time no update on this humble blog of mine. So basically everything is fine. I am still living. Alhamdulillah. I don't have much things to say but recently, I had the first hectic week in my university life. Third semester in degree, only now I feel busy. Pheww.

I noticed sometimes people want you to understand them but they refuse to do the same. I had few encounters of these kind of things in my life. Have you? And myself could be doing that to other people too. To those people that I have done these things, I am so sorry. I apologised sincerely. I never meant to do that. I am trying my best to understand everyone but as human I am, I could always overlook and err. I am so so sorry.

It is so heartbreaking when people assume you are not willing to help them. They said you are not worthy of a friend and so what not. But little did they know that you yourself don't have enough hands on your works. They don't bother to ask if you have free time or work before assuming. When you say no politely, they are furious. That people, is human. We tend to seek understanding from other people but sometimes we don't do the same. Duhh.

I think the best way is to move on. Don't remember people for their fault or mistakes. They are human too. Forgive them because we might be in the same boat in the future. Always treat other people like how you want to be treated. Life is all about balance. What you give you get back.

Wehh I am literally talking nonsense. Understand that I just want to update this dusty blog. Lol. Oh by the way my semester break is coming very soon. Let's pray that I will write more.

Till then, bye! Be good do good.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum peeps.

They say good friends last a lifetime. Alhamdulillah, I met mine back in school. Not all of them, but most of them are sure good friends. They are willing to spend their times listening to me blabber and chatter nonsense. They are there to help and console me when I need them. Anyway, my life has always been blessed with good people around me. Alhamdulillah. 

There were lot of laughs and smiles and stories. I can't write how good it feels to meet them and share load of things together. Anyway, my other half wasn't joining the iftar since he got some problems. That's a bit frustrating.

My fellow classmates. Megat is in red and our driver is in greyy. Baby's wearing pinkkkk. She's more matured now. Hiks. The rest, awesome as always.

The one in the red is Aini. Our orang kuat. Lewls. But seriously, she makes the iftar happens. Weeee

I dont know there's such good person in my batch. Hahah. He or she has sponsored these two tasty cakes. Yeayyy! Allah bless you.

I would love to write more but currently is not good time. Toodles! Thanks for reading. May Allah bless. 

The whole lot of us. ❤❤

A Little Gift Goes A Long Way

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum everyone!

Remember the camp I've told you guys before? So, ada satu slot dalam kem tu yang bagi participants share their silent battles. Tajuk slot tu Hero. Menurut Puan Mariah Carey, there's a hero in youuuuuuuuuuuu. Haa gittew. So memang ramai la yang mempunyai keberanian yang mengagumkan aku share their stories. Lemme remind you, bukan battle sebarang battle okayyy. Some of them ada menyelamatkan parents dari bercerai berai, ada yang cari duit untuk parents and so what not. Then, bila dengar cerita yang orang lain share, suddenly rasa kecik sangat. Rasa macam Ya Allah canne lah hebat sangat diorang boleh go through broken phase ni?

Anyway, bukan benda ni yang aku nak share. Biasa ah pompuan dia punya mukaddimah sama panjang dengan imam Makkah baca surah masa malam tarawikh tu. Haa macam kat sekolah dulu dulu kan? Mesti ada ustaz yang suka baca panjang panjang, ada yang suka baca pendek berdessup settle lapan rakaat. Haa kan menyimpang lagi tu aku punya cerita. Okay okay. Sudah cukup sudah. 

So salah seorang kawan aku yang share cerita pasal battle dia ada mention mengenai bagi hadiah dekat orang lain ni. Katanya, dalam rezeki kita tu ada rezeki orang lain. Takyah nak pening kepala lah kan, time ada member rapat yang celebrate birthday bagi je hadiah sikit. Bawah RM10 cukup katanya. Maksudnya, ikut budget masing masing la kannn. This friend of mine has never failed to give me birthday present since we first met (Allah bless her eternally, Amiin). 

Dua kali bukak almari ada hadiah dengan notes kecik wish birthday. Ya Allah dia punya feeling tu memang tak tergambar. Rasa terharu, happy, bersyukur. Terharu sebab ada orang susah payah spend some money on us. Happy sebab, well obviously sebab dapat hadiah la kan. Bersyukur sebab baiknya Allah kurniakan aku seorang sahabat yang taktau lah macam mana boleh baik sangat padahal aku ni perangai serupa asdfghjkl. 

Kali ni aku try buat benda sama dekat dia. Tak ni bukan nak cerita gebang aku baik bagi hadiah kat member, tak. Bukan tu motifnya. Yang aku nak bagitau ialah perasaan bila boleh buat orang tu happy. Walaupun hadiah tu tak seberapa. Bila orang tu whatsapp cakap terima kasih dengan gelak hahahahahahaaahahahaahahhaaahahaha yang panjang berserta typo nampak la kan dia happy. Tak terbayang lah pulak kalau dia sengaja fake kan typo tu. XD.

That's why the title is 'A Little Gift Goes A Long Way'. When you give someone a gift, it means you let him or her knows that in your heart, they have their own places. You made their days and put a smile on their faces. I think it is a beautiful thing to be done. To make others smile. The price of the gift does not matter. Some of us could be bless with extra wealth, so they can give better things. But remember, the price does not matter, the sincerity is. Be sincere in giving, it goes a long wayyyyy. :)

It's Ramadhan Kareem. Do good, be good. :)
May Allah bless.

Thank for reading!

Quick Update

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيم

Assalamualaikum and hi everyone!

So it has been ages since I last update my blog. To those loyal readers, I apologise sincerely. My hostel is not equipped with WiFi and I despise updating my blog using mobile phone. Plus I'm living such a typical life and I feel like there's not much things to write. Hence, the seldom update. 

Anyway, I'm currently in my third semester for my Bachelor of English at a local university in our lovely country. And I am having my semester braykkkkkk everyone. Yias. A break with Y. I love some glitter in normal words, pardon me. However my brayk is coming to an end. It should end tomorrow but a rebellious me would like to extend my awesome brayk. I know I know, that's so good of me isn't it? XD

I went for a mandatory camp for the first week of my brayk. What a nice thing kan? Blergh. But the camp was so good and I could not move on for the first few days after it ended. I think that means the camp is excellent, brilliant, fun, eye-opener and God-knows-the-mighty-words-to-describe-it. The first five days were held at Sunway University and the rest two days were at Mujahadah Agro Camp (MACC) somewhere in Semenyih. It's a shame I can't share the picture of the MAC site since we need to hand over our phones and laptops and so what not.  I would like to share some of the awesomeness through the pictures I curi from MAC facebook. :D

So basically this is the hall. The camp is so simple. It is kind of back to basic.

This one is one of my favourite facilitators. We call him Abang Joe and he is so fabulous. hahaha

Did I mention it is like back to basic? Yes. We eat in the talam and wash it ourselves.

A whole lot of us. These easy going people are so awesome!! <3

Well that's one of the most memorable things happen lately. While I'm still at home I'll be updating this blog as much as possible. lewls.

Till then. 


p/s: Thanks for reading! My writing skill is long gone. :(

Hingga Hujung Usia

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Hingga hujung usia ini
Tidakkan lupus rasa bersalah di hati
Manakan mungkin sesal ini mati.

Bersalah untuk beberapa perkara
Bilamana aku gagal menjuarai cita cita
Kerana menghampakan ibu bapa
Membiar basi kan peluang yang ada
Tapi yang paling utama
Bersalah kerana menggagalkan harapan jiwa
Itu yang paling nyata.

Sesal kerana dua tiga benda
Membiarkan diri ragu ragu
Ragu ragu dengan diri aku.
Membiarkan diri dihantui satu rasa
Rasa takut dengan segala benda
Ternyata di akhirnya aku yang binasa
Sesal kerana segala benda
Segala pilihan dan keputusan yang terlaksana
Yang membinasakan di akhirnya.

Hayat ini aku teruskan hidup yang berbaki
Hayat akan datang akan ku buktikan aku manusia yang bermimpi
Dan menjadikan mimpinya realiti.

Kalau Boleh

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Kalau boleh,
Aku nak travel satu dunia.
Minum kopi di Manhattan
Tonton fashion show di Milan
Santap fresh croissant di Perancis
Jalan tepi Sungai Thames jamu mata
Singgah di Itali kunyah pizza
Sedut udara Wales yang segar
Pilih rempah ratus di India
Tilik barang murah di China
Atau pergi sahaja ke mana mana
Yang kaki ku mampu bawa
Yang penting setiap suasana
Aku mahu ambil gambar
Dan kongsikan di insta.

Kalau lah boleh.
Kalau lah jalan jalan itu murah.
Kalau lah diri ini pandai berjimat, bukan setakat berangan.
Hidup kalau sembang pasal kalau, kalau boleh taknak kalah taknak habis taknak sudah.

Kalau lah kan.
