My First Driving Lesson

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Salam and hi people!

I'm 22 years old and I never feel like having a driving license is really important. I know that it is actually important but I just feel like I can live without it. Studying in Kelana Jaya, I can reach lot of places by buses and LRT. And ever since Uber and Grab exist, life is so much easier. So, I never feel like I need a driving license.
But then, life changed. I finished degree and came home for a good few months before I start planning my career path. I went to two interviews and both of them asking me about me having driving license or not. Mannnn, is it a must now? Family members started to pressure me abut that. So stressful lah. I no longer can use the excuse of commuting by bus or LRT because they do not exist in Terengganu. 
Well the buses do exist but they don't cover much area. Every time I'm going out my super kind hearted friends will pick me up and send me home. I am so blessed to have my friends. I love y'all.
Long short, I decided to start my driving lesson. First time driving, IT WAS TERRIBLE. I stopped at the middle of two way road. Half of the car was in my lane while the other half was in the opposite lane. People around assured me that I will be fine and I will enjoy driving. Well, I. DID. NOT.
My first time driving, I was so nervous that I had my mental blocked. I could not listen to any of the instructions from the instructor and the engine kept turning off. Four times, I think. I am an embarrassment!!! That time, I felt like I was really stupid and a failure. LOL. Still think that way actually. To add salt to the injury, my legs are short they could not reach the clutch pedal properly. URGHHH.
Anyway, I had another driving lesson tomorrow. Writing this entry just to vent off my frustration towards driving. Hhahah. I think am not destined for driving. But still, I will just work hard to get my driving license and maybe will never ever drive. LOL. Pray for me y'all. Pakcik Teksi, Uber, Grab and buses, I never appreciate y'all enough. I will always use more public transport after this. I promise. *sobs*
Y'ALL ARE HEROS! *and driving still suck* 
Thanks for reading my rant about nonsense thing like this. Hahahah.

Good Ol' Games

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
*SUPER LONG POST Y'ALL*
Salam and Hi, people!
Last night, I had a fun conversation with my second sister and her husband. We talked about the good old times when our family had our first PC. It was Acer desktop with blue colour CPU and big translucent on/off button. My mom set up a password on that desktop so only she had the access to the fun, exciting games. Three of us - kak ngoh, cik mat and me had an hour each to play everyday. Looking back, I am glad kakak was in boarding school and rarely home or else we will fight worse than we were to play game on the computer.
The computer was in the family from 2002 until 2012 (I think) and undergone many operations because we were so rough with it and we did not have any basic understanding about technology. Haha you can say we were a bunch of newbies back then. Anyway, I was in boarding school since 2008. Every semester break, I was so excited to play and score the best only to get disappointed. You want to know why? Well, my dear mother and father basically spent their free time battling each other in the games while their cute, lovely kinds went to school. THEY. SCORE. SOME. HIGH. FREAKING. SCORES. WHICH. NONE. OF. OUR. SIBLINGS. CAN. TOP. OFF.
Urghh. It was so annoying to give your best only to know that it's not even eligible to be in the Top 10! Anyway, do you guys remember your favourite video games back the? I do! Even though I am not a good player, I enjoy playing them. Lemme share with y'all and tell me if we had any common fav games!

1. Chocolatier 2 - Secret Ingredients
This game took my social life away. I went out playing the bicycle lesser than ever, didn't play in the river as much and skipped watching my favourie cartoons just to play with it. It was so so so FUN! The player had to go around the world, collecting the best ingredient for the chocolate. And then, we had to design the billboard, the chocolate wrapper and manage the inventory. Oh, when we found the unique ingredients, we have to haggle for the best price as well! I learnt the word haggle from this game hehehe.

2. Iggle Pop!
Anyone remember this?? OMG they were so cuteeee! We can choose the hero and then proceed to save those colourful cute furball. The smoke like things were the villains. They will break the chain of the iggles we save. The iggles will be in chain behind us before we deliver them home according to the colour. Anddddd, the more iggle in the same colour (sequence) the more marks for combo you get! Weeeehuuuu. Oh, we can eat the FREEZE things and put the villains frozen for a while. I like this game so much because it's so cute heheh. The sound effects were also cute hehehe some more.

3. Bomberman
I have to admit that I don't know much about this game but I still remember the thrilling experience of it. It's a really simple game but I had so much fun with it.

4. Tumblebugs
Ahhhh these colourful sphere bugs. This was one of the games with my mom's name as the high scorer. It was nerve wrecking when you got all the wrong colours yet the bugs were all closed to the hole. This game also has nice sound effects. I like the colours and the levels. Sometimes, when the name register was full (not only for this game), our siblings play dirty. We either delete others' name or we rename the name with high level. Hehehe.

5. Feeding Frenzy 
Feeding Frenzy *sound effect* Need any explanation about this game? I dont think so. It was fun playing this game but the excitement can never beat the one felt while playing Chocolatier Secret Ingredients.

6. Pizza Frenzy
This one let me created my own pizza as well. I discovered my Italian side in this game. Haha. Remember what happens when you took order from a thief? The police sirens? Ahhhhhh good game, people. Goooood game.

7. Diner Dash
It's your girl, Flo! Damnnnnn this game so nice I struggled placing those angry customers because like I have said, I was not a good player. I was not fast enough to excel in this kind of game. My sister, kakngoh was the ace. She scored every level, mannn.
There were also few games with the word Dash if I am not mistaken. I remember the Wedding Dash. Uuuu that one was so fun. Choosing all the food and place weeee. So nice. But also, nerve wrecking because it was chaotic.

8. Plantasia 
Weird plants, everyone. Weird plants. My sister confessed to me last night how much she hated the soil with stones and weeds because we had to dig the stones/weeds out, prepare the soil and after that only plant the weird plants. If we were out of energy or spells, then the stones or weeds came back. According to her, it was tiring hahaha. I dont really remember what's the point of planting these weirdos but some of them were pretty so okay, I'll play with y'all.

9. Chuzzle Deluxe
It's the popping colourful furball, people! When you matched certain amounts of these colourful balls, they will expand and POP! The sound effects were funny and I love them because they were cute and their eyes moved around when you slides them hehe.

10. Insaniquarium 
Well, according to this game, I was one successful aquarium keeper. My fish even breed diamonds. Beat that, Aquaria staff! But in all seriousness, this game got me hook up as well. I like it so much because they were err cute hehe and they also breed unusual things or have amazing power.  

11. Fish Tycoon
Y'all not only I bred fish super successfully, I was freaking rich coz I was a fish tycoon! Fuhh, tried so hard to breed unique or special fish. I even wrote a note about what type of fish with what type of fish will produce what type of fish. If I am this hardworking during my SPM year, I will be huge mannn. But then, there was big KPop wave and I was drown in it and the rest was history. *sobs in corner*

12. Cake Mania
This one taught me how to bribe people with food. So y'all, I learnt that when people got angry, calm them down with free cupcakes! I remember that I can upgrade everything in my cake shop. Even the tray to put the cake also can be upgraded into two tier. Mind-blowing lol. Until today, I havent change my mind. Christmas shaped cake with the purple icing is the ugliest. 

13. Family Feud
I love this game because I feel smart playing it. Hahaha. No actually, some of the questions were really nonsense, not to mention the answers. But I had a grand time answering and guessing what will be the top answers and then laugh myself silly when the top answer is revealed.

14. Jojo Fashion Show
This game is most popular among the girls. Well, of course it should be popular. It let us dress the models with beautiful, sexy and stylish clothing up to our taste. Hehehe I was never good in fashion so I didnt play this very well. 

15. Inspector Gadget
This one was as fun! Jumping around, grabbing food and fighting off enemies. I dont really remember what else in this game but I know I enjoy it very much back then.

Well, these games are among what I played when I was younger. There were lot more I didnt list - Burger Story, Zumba, Alice Greenfingers etc etc. What a goooooooood time. Now I am older I also feel a bit sad to realise that back then we had Game Boy Simulator with loads of amazing games. There were more than 150++ games but as newbies back then, we didnt appreciate it enough. Now I spend time phone playing Ramboat and Design Home on tiny screen. *sobs*
Feel free to comment and add on for any games I missed! Or simply just tell me if there is any common favourite game we share!
Thanks for reading.
Bye!

How to Create Signature in PDF

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ


People, this was me when I read the invoice for my graduation and convocation fees. And I got more shocked when I knew that my scholarship may or may not be paying these fees. WHATTTT? *internal scream* No, actually I really screamed. Now I have to whack my poor brain thinking all possible solutions how to pay all these fees if my scholarship chooses not to pay for them.

So, I emailed the company idk what are they but I know that they manage us, all the scholars under Yayasan Peneraju. They asked me to write a letter, a formal request letter for Peneraju, duly signed. What is duly signed? At that time idk either. So my mentor said that I have to prepare a letter in PDF format and make sure my signature is hand-written.

I am not the brightest child in whole wide world, y'all. So I was thinking of typing the letter in Words, print it out, sign it and scan it into PDF. Then, I will email it to Peneraju. Hah! I am so outdated and stupid. Guys, actually there are super easy ways to sign in your PDF letters. Come let Teacher Ba teaches you how to. hiks.

1. Write your normal letter in Words with space for signature.
Like dis okay y'all? Make sure the space can fit your signature nicely. 

2. Save your letter in PDF.

4 years in university and I only learn this during my final year. Well like I said, I'm not the brightest kid, people. Not even in the class.

3. Open letter in PDF format.
 Click on the 'fill and sign' option in the right bar,

 4. Click on sign bar, then choose add signature.
Almost there guys. 

5. Click on image.
 So you can choose how would you like to sign your signature. I choose image. Easy guys. You just have to take a picture of your signature. Select that picture or image and it will look like...

6. THIS!
 See? It will look like this. Now you click apply. 

ANDDDDDD.

7. Place it!
Place there and just save! Easy right??!

After I have done with the letter, I beamed at myself you know? It felt surreal hahaha. I thought it was a very difficult task until I found this accidentally. You know what I looked like when I was done with the letter? I luk laik dis gais.

But then I suddenly realised that there was no guarantee of my scholarship paying for my convocation and graduation fees. So I went back to my old face. 


Pray for me guys!
Bye.

Wedding and Mini Reunion

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

People, 
I have officially entered the stage of attending-your-friends'-weddings in life. I'm 22 years old and I have attended two weddings. Both are my friends from school. It hits me like BAMMM! I'm an adult. My friends are getting married and here I am, rummaging my drawer looking for my old Doraemon comics. I need to grow up, people. Well, maybe later. My friend, Nik Fatihah get married last Friday and this upcoming Friday, another friend will get hitched.

Anyway, wedding brings people closer. I have awesome schoolmates (well after school, we kinda feel okay with each other even though we all got cliques and dislike one another back then hahahha). So we planned to go to Nik's wedding together. God knows how excited I am. And then I thought of putting make up HAHAHAHAHA who am I kidding? I. AM. DELUSIONAL. But I tried wearing mascara and successfully smudged it by rubbing my eyes because it was itchy. (-_-'')Smudge or no, I met my friends!! Yehuuuuu.

It is my pleasure to serve my readers' eyes with plenty of pretty ugly pictures of us. Hehehe

Almost all of us. Nik looked so lovely, sweet, charming ____________, ______________ (insert suitable words to describe a bride). The pelamin was simple but I like the colour and the decoration idk what they call the bulu bulu renda carpet kerusi and all that lah.

Ops didnt notice Tasyi was not ready yet (far right). Or maybe I noticed but still put this picture. Idk. I hate my friends. I wore platform shoes and I was still the shortest. UNFAIR. Not to mention I consumed most of the space. (Longer spelling for FAT hahaha)

And then we left Nik. Well, she got herself a husband isnt she? We got ourselves, camera and nice lighting. So bye Nik. Hello amateur and havoc photo shoot. Hiks.

Wow I must be a wood descendant. Look at my pose. So kayu euwww. I didnt know that Mirah was a photo shoot expert. The way she threw one shoulder and bent one leg fuhhh she thinks she Rozita Che Wan is it? Che B was looking very polite awhhhh if there are any guys looking at her, they would be attracted immediately hahah. Piqah was caught mid-pose. I think she's trying to do the 'peace pose' while talking kahkah.

Break up. 
Left: Black and blue team. Vet good teamwork. The slimmer one cooperated very well in hiding bigger friend hahaha. 
Right: Inconsistent team. Teamwork is bad. No one knows the team colour. Bad team. Some of them didnt want to be in the team at all. Like Ecah. Hahahah.

What kind of lame pose and amateur selfie is this? Well, I smiled my usual retard smile, Mirah was promoting Colgate, Darlie and Sensodyne all at once, Piqah tried to look goddess and other was doing okay. I guess. If I am to take selfie after this, I will look at this picture and shake myself out of the disillusionment. I am a descendant of wood. What can I do in a picture?????  

Okay this one was okay. Except for Mirah. She was fired from being the toothpastes ambassador and replaced with Wawa. Hence the 'kerituk-keritak' face. Cik B.... Hmmmm how do I begin with Cik B. Well, she was Cik b in this photo. Only half face shown what?

This one... hmmmm. maybe we tried to mimic the trees behind us. Nah, the sun shone too brightly we couldn't open our eyes properly. Anyway, I think Mirah was sleeping for real. The burden on her left shoulder (me) was too heavy.


There were lot of pictures. Everyone shared pictures from their phone and fuhhh I had hard time to choose which picture to share on instagram. Obvs not because every picture was breath taking. It was more like every picture looked heart breaking. Aiyya. There will be at least one friend, ternganga lah, tudung senget lah, eyes closed lah, busy talking lah (that's me), trying to walk out of the frame lah (that's Jiera and she probably thought of portraits at Hogwarts when she's walking out of the frame). Long short, ada je yang cacat dalam gambar. Aiyya.

So most of us shared the picture from the official photographer. Demmm nice lighting, everyone looked like Dato' Vida. Flawless I tell you. All in all, we had a very nice catch up session. We gossiped, shared stories, made silly jokes, laugh at our own jokes coz we are independent ladies, tried to annoy each other and of course, took a lot of pictures. Sometimes I think if we are still using the old Kodak camera...Hah! Die la us have to fast to save money to cuci the gambar we took.

Whoop! I think I have written long enough about this mini reunion and of course, Nik's wedding. Hahaha. I really really can't wait for another wedding. It means meeting old friends and having real good laugh enough to last for the whole day! Cherish your friends and the moments you share together! It will be the things you treasure the most in the old age. 

Bye!
Thanks for reading. :)

Current Life

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Hi everyone!

It's been almost two months since I finished my internship. So, I have been to one job interview, and it was really really lovely. I wanted to work there so bad. It was an assistant teacher position and the payment was not a lot, it's only 1k (after probation), BUT considering it's a job offer for SPM leavers I think it's good money. The school environment was so so so lovely and they had exciting activities and plans with the students. The only downside is the working hour; 6.50 am - 6 pm. Phewww.

I don't actually mind the working hours because honestly, I think it is very important for me to gain experience in education field. But the, I have no driving license yet and I am going to rely on my father. Soooo, I don't really like the idea of me asking him to send me to work around 6.30 am when he only goes to sleep around 12 in the midnight. Sad it was but I had to email them my decision not to accept the offer. T___T

Anyway, I decided to learn how to drive. I went to the 6 hours ceramah memandu yesterday. The second half teacher was so funny, I literally cried while I laughed. I will sit for the computer test tomorrow and mannn I am so nervous. I haven't study for test for so longggg. I only read novels, magazines and blogs. Hmppph. Let's hope I will do well tomorrow.

My blog is looking so boring and empty now. I was busy doing other people's blogs. I think I did around 4 blogs already and I enjoyed the process. I cant say I designed the blog because design is like something talented and I am nothing near talented except if you count turning catchy songs into monotonous poem, then I have a talent. I want to give new minimalist look to my dear bog but I dont have any ideas, yet. So, back to the basic template it is.

I think that's what I have to ramble now. It's a cloudy day here and I feel like sleeping hehe.

Jobless and Poor

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Hi peeps.



THIS IS LITERALLY HOW I FEEL NOW *cry cry cry*

As per my previous post, I am a free lady. I have finished my degree but mannnnn, it's mentally exhausting to live without income. Don't take me wrong, I am very grateful to be alive and still breathing, enjoying every moment but heyy, I won't say no to any financial aid hahah. I was supported by my scholarship when I was studying. I have steady allowance coming in every month. Now, I even have to ask money from my mother to buy some mobile top-up. T__T

Ramadhan is just around the corner so I have decided to bake some cookies and sell them. Nowadays, I am willing to go extra miles for pocket money, guys. Be supportive guys and buy cookies from me!! Hahah. I even applied to several freelance jobs. Like writing, translating etc etc. And oh, I also promoted myself as assignment helper haha. Pay me guys so I can actually liveeeee. 

Anyway, I feel like I need to tell people about Shopback (because I need to make money). Have you guys tried? Well, sad if you did not. Because IT. IS. FREAKING. AWESOME. I have around RM25 in my account just because I promoted my link to my friends. Once they had redeemable cashback in their account, I enjoy some bonus too! So YES YES YES for Shopback. It is very useful to people who like to shop online. Some sites offer up to 11% cashback. Soooo nice!

If you are still confuse how to use Shopback, refer HERE. I wrote it few months back. And for some cash in your account (and for me too hehehe) use my link!

https://www.shopback.my/referred-signup-bonus?raf=DiGlZr <----- CLICK CLICK CLICK

Well, that's all I have to rent for now. 
Till then.
Bye!

Thanks for reading!

p/s: I sound a bit desperate for money now I read my own writing lolol

Life after Internship

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Hello everyone!

It's been so looooooooooong since I last write something in my blog. Sorry everyone but I was so occupied during internship. Now I'm back in my home with my lovely parents. You know how I feel after finishing my internship? You don't know? Then, let me tell you.


This is exactly how I felt the moment I stepped out from the school, FREEDOM! I am free everyone, freeeee! The world suddenly seemed brighter, people seemed kinder and I felt like dancing everywhere pfft which of course I did not do. Anyway, I thought feeling free is the only feeling I would feel after internship. I am wrong, people. I AM COMPLETELY WRONG.

I MISS MY STUDENTS. BIG TIME. 

They are lovely, they are funny. They cause terrible headache but magically, somehow, they are the cures for my headache as well. I miss their constant chit chatting in the class, their silly questions and their childish whines and complaints. I miss the hustle and bustle I have to face going to work, planning lessons and activities and playing around with my students. 

Sigh. Who thought that I would miss internship? I, myself am not prepared for this kind of feeling. It stings like a bee and I feel like I missed a limb. I thought once I finished internship, I would feel happy. You know, like those women who are happy to come home and finally took off their bras? Yah, that kind of feeling I thought I would be getting.

Instead, here I am. All sappy and sad, missing my students whom I hope will miss me as much. But I know them, they will forget me in two months. Lol. Maybe eve faster than that. Haha. Jokes aside, I am forever grateful for my wonderful students. They made internship ten times better for me and that was the best thing for me.

Well, I ran out of things to rant but not tears to cry. *boooohooo! I am such a weakling. Got to find silent corner and cry, guys. 

Bye!
Thanks for reading.

Love to The Rescue

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum peeps

Internship is wearing me out, people. I really really really love teaching. I love my students, I love the work I have to do but mannnnn, I am so tired. Going out before 7 in the morning and arriving home around 6 something in the evening, I don't really love that. My eyes are a mess, my sleeping patterns are even worse and my chair is basically full with unfolded laundry.

I think it's time for some breaks.

Who am I kidding? I am in my internship programme and if I'm taking any leave, I will have to replace it. T____T. I want to see my family so bad but had no time to go back to Terengganu. God is the ultimate planner. I planned and He planned and He is the best! My parents and the two youngest among the siblings are coming to KL! Yiasss.

I went back to my eldest sister's house yesterday and my heart immediately rejoiced! Seeing my parents and all the familiar family faces just got my energy recharged. I feel like there's nothing I cannot do now kahkah. I really can understand when people say love can cure almost everything. I feel the same way too. 

Cherish your parents while you can. While we are busy building your career and life, they are growing old as well. Remember to spend time with them before they leave us.

Thanks for reading!
Do good, be good!
