10 Days In

It's been 10 days since us Muslims performing our obligations in this Holy month of Ramadhan.

I haven't had any problem adjusting during the day but getting up at 3 in the morning is still difficult. I at least snoozed my alarm for 3 times.

Sigh. Still aiming to become a better Muslim.

Praying while at work is definitely not easy as there's no provided space to Solat so i make do everyday to pray in the Account Department. Alhamdulillah.

Ya Allah, please make me a stronger person while facing your challenges in throughout this Ramadhan~ amin.

Ramadhan 1437H

Ramadhan comes again. I pray that we all can go through this Holy month and become a better Muslim by the end of it.

One of the things that I have made myself promise is to not buying food from bazaar. The reason is definitely because I want to encourage myself to cook healthy food at home and sharing house. Less sweet food as well.

6 Weeks In

So it's been about a month and a half since I moved into this Sharing House. Yep. That's what I call the house that I'm renting currently.

Overall, I find my housemates are really into their own routines as some of them have been living in the house for about 5 years so her routine is quite fixed.

While the others have been living for about 2 to 3 years but I don't really know about them much as I never actually get to sit them and chat.

Then there are the new ones like me who moved in about 2 weeks before me and these girls are always doing stuffs together. I tried to be among them for the first few weeks but I gave up recently. It's hard for me to intervene in their conversations as it always about them and most importantly, I don't have much in common with any of those girls.

I usually arrived around 6 in the evening at the house and I haven't started planning to cook dinner for myself yet so I usually just go up to my room right away, watching drama, shower and then off to bed like 9 p.m. haha I know! As someone who used to sleep like 2 in the morning, having to wake up early means I need to sleep early as I usually take some time to get up. But recently, I usually get up the latest at 6 a.m., be the first to shower, and getting dressed at 7 a.m. and off to work. I'm taking the bus most of the time as I don't want to drenched in my own sweat if I were to walk to the office in the morning.

I walked home most of the time but if I were to work extra hours, I usually get a ride home with my colleague or to somewhere in KK where I meet my parents for dinner. They'll send me home right after.

So that's pretty much my routine during the weekdays. It's beautifully boring I tell you.

But still, I'm grateful to Allah and hopefully I can mend my parents' broken hearts bit by bit.

Sharing House 2.0

The last time I lived in a rent house was back in 2009.

As commuting to my work place is quite time-consuming as dad needed to drive me 6 in the morning to avoid traffic and pick me up in the evening right after work, I figured it's better to just get a room to rent that isn't so far from the office.

So I went on Mudah.com and listed out like 10 possible places to rent and went for room hunting yesterday. The first place was Chanyai Villa in Likas. It's about 20 minutes walk from my office and it was a small studio apartment with 2 girls looking for a third roommate. The whole place was a mess and it's so hot in there. We went to the next location right after.

The next place is actually a double-storey house in Taman Likas and from the look of it, all my neighbours probably have been living in that neighbourhood for more than 30 years if not a third generation at least. The windows are made of old-fashioned grilled with wooden panels, the switches are yellowish, probably aged 20 years, there's even old air-condition on the wall...

But I decided to choose that place as it's only 15 minutes walk from the office and the house is actually quite nice.

I haven't really meet my housemates yet so hopefully all of them are good people.

Hopefully.

Thinking About Life

It's been over 6 months since I moved back to Sabah and I'm pretty much settled in.

The one thing I realised ever since I got back is I no longer have friends that I can hang out with. Friends that are single and have no other life commitment.

I really miss my best friend especially on days like this. Where I just wanna go out and have fun with my best girl.

Not gonna happen any time soon I guess. Sigh

Anyway, Happy Birthday, babe! Just know I always love you and I hope you will finally get the happiness that you seek i.e. getting married! haha

Rasa Ingin Tahu?

Segalanya bermula kira-kira dalam 2 atau 3 semester yang lepas. Sesungguhnya aku pun tidak pasti.

Setiap kali kami terjumpa, dengan tidak sengaja aku akan melihat dia dari atas sampai ke bawah dan dia juga begitu.

... dan setiap kali itulah kami akan berkerut dahi sambil memerhatikan satu sama lain.

Pelik sangatkah aku? Hodoh sangatkah aku? Selekeh sangatkah aku? ... banyak persoalan bermain di minda pada setiap kali kejadian itu berlaku.

Pada kali pertama, aku masih ingat lagi akan waktu itu di mana aku sedang dalam perjalanan menuju ke kelas dan mungkin dia juga begitu, kami saling terpandang, walhal masing-masing sedang khusyuk bermain telefon pintar sendiri 5 saat sebelumnya.

Pada kali kedua atau ketiga, mungkin juga keempat, aku terperasan dia duduk selang tiga atau empat kerusi di dalam bas menuju ke stesen LRT. Setiap kali aku memandang ke arahnya, dia berpaling.

Mungkin... aku sahaja yang berperasan sebegini.

Pertemuan kali ke... entah berapa, aku ternampak dia sedang menikmati secawan kopi di luar Starbucks.

Oh, mungkin dia juga pergi ke kafe yang sama denganku, fikirku lagi.

Sudah agak lama kejadian-kejadian itu berlaku sehinggalah hari ini, aku bertemu dia lagi dan bermulah rutin kami setiap kali terjumpa.

Namun kali ini, terdetik di hati seolah-olah timbul sesuatu yang mungkin kurang menyenangkan di fikiran si dia kerana dia memandangku dengan serba tidak kena.

Apakah dia berasa aku mengekorinya seperti orang gila?

Pelik. Sungguh pelik.

Walaupun pada dasarnya kami pergi ke universiti yang sama, kafe Starbucks yang kami pergi itu adalah cawangan yang terdekat dari universiti, dan selain dari tempat-tempat itu, kami tidak terjumpa di tempat lain.

Mungkin ini semua hanya satu kebetulan.

Mungkin.

Looking Back

I have to admit, after living for about 8 years far from my family, I feel like as I'm on the edge whenever someone asked me about my feelings all this time. 

Truth is, I've always want to come home and just live a simple life. 

Staying at home, being just a regular kampung girl. Gathering with some girls laughing with me at malam badak on Saturday nights and having occasional shopping spree at KK while looking forward to social gatherings in the village. 

... I'm not saying that's all what typical village girls are doing but... I was like that.. at least in my teenage years. 

It's just that during those times, I feel so carefree and.. happy. 

I've noticed that whenever I come home, some of my relatives were like talking about my fashion sense and whatnot... saying I should have been wearing this and that... instead of this and that... pointing out why I don't even wear makeups... sigh. I don't know that living in KL means I have to be on pointy stilettos, wearing the latest fashion item, know where the local celebs hanging out and put on makeups while shopping for kitchen supplies. Well, I know. Sounds exaggerating, at least the last part.  

I started living in KL when I was just turning 18 and back then I feel I'm going to finish my studies like in just few years and honestly, I'm still not sure whether I'm on the right track or not.

Yep, I feel lost.

Trip to Labuan




Honestly.... I haven't transferred the photos that I took using my Nikon D5100 so yeah. For now these are the ones that I can share with you guys. LOL

Above photos are basically the ones that I took using my iPhone while we're on the huge ferry as we're leaving the island. 

I've been on the island for merely 2 days and one night, so there are not much I can say about this trip other than shopping on perfumes and chocolates. Believe me, the prices are crazy! I bought my Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina EDT and EDP miniatures for merely RM80! Miniatures aren't meant to be sold but I was so tempted to get them as it's great for travelling. 

So yeah, I'll update some more when I transferred those photos into my all-in-one later. 

Until then, take care!

Surviving 3rd Semester in Architecture

Alhamdulillah, I survived the second attempt of Architectural Design 1. Though there are other subjects I didn't score well but I still feel relief the fact that my study plan isn't interrupted this time around.

There are many things I want to say as honestly I'm really on the edge right now. Sigh.

Looking at other people who are moving on with their lives, I can't help but feeling a little bit envy. Well, this isn't news to anyone that's close to me. Though my best friend has reminded me how she had gone through the same thing over and over again but I still can't help feeling restless over the fact that I'm still here.

In this very university.

Sometimes I wonder if there are other reason why God still put me in here.

Why did I still want to continue my studies here in this uni? Was being familiar with this university a very big concern during the time I made my decision to stay here? I don't even remember about that.

After doing a lot of thinking (pulling out me legal pads and whatnot LOL) I arrived to a conclusion that I have to look for something that can make my life here in this uni less suffering.

yes, babe! You should've furthered your studies here!

But what could that be?
