guy fawkes night!!

'remember,remember the fifth of november'..does that line sound familiar?..hope it's a line from one of my favourite movies entitled 'V for Vendetta'..i like this movie very much because it's bout the fight of the people towards their government..since i seems to have quite an interest in politic myself,i couldn't think of any reason on why shouldn't i like this movie..

last week,on 7th of november, my friends and i went to the celebration located in tyres hill..we weren't quite sure wut it's called therefore we juz regard it as 'Guy Fawkes Night'..we went there by nightfall..

at first i thought that we will be going there by bus..but actually it's a 1 hour walk..owh my..the weather is freezing..but we still went since we didn't want to miss the firewoks.. n so we walked n walked..

when we arrived there,it's freezing..damn freezing..the temperature might b below 3 degrees..but it's quite a nice place..n quite an interesting tiny n small funfair..but we weren't there for that..we wanted to see the fireworks..we secluded the best spot ever n stood there for almost an hour..

finally it began..gotta tell u that it was amazing..the fireworks lasted for almost half an hour..wutever it is,i was glad since after admiring the movie for years, finally i got to involve in a celebration relating to it..

'reading week' in Margate yeah!!

's me again..well,who else could it b rite? i'm going to write about my recent visit to was a picnic since margate is located by the seaside..or margate is located by the sea shore..or margate is near to the sea..

judging by the title of this particular post,1 would b wondering y wuz it written in such a way..well it's bcoz i went there during the reading's a week dedicated to us by our beloved university so that we would able to catch up n work out on our assignments..but instead of doing all that,here i was..margate..then london..but i still managed to do some work towards the end of this reading week so no worries..hihi..

we went there by bus n it took bout 45minutes to get there..upon arriving there,i felt at peace since it's a sea..typical rite?..sea does bring back many memories..hihi..but it was quite windy n towards the evening,it wuz starting to get damn cold..but we still managed to hav a gud time n took many photos..

i learnt something on that day which is no matter where you go, sea will always be the same..wutever that means..hihi

london,tale of the 3 visits..

heyya2 i'm going to write briefly about 3 of my recent visits to london..well to be exact it's not that recent but screw it anyway..hihi.. old city with an ancient history dated back thousand of years ago..n i've been dreaming to be here since i was small..well, dreams do come true rite?..i've been to london 3 times..however,each 1 of my visit had it's own agende n none of them included tour of london i supposed..

well,the first was on 26 of september..we went there to attend the Malaysian Student Department's (MSD) raya open house..since this is da first time that we went to london,i was quite excited..however, a series of unfortunate event had tore those cheerful thoughts..

then, during the second visit, which was very brief, i went there with 4 of my friends to cash in our travellers's another a series of unfortunate event but i dun wanna write it down..lalalala

finally, the most recent visit, last 2 weeks i supposed, was to do my winter shopping..i went there with 6 of my friends n all of them were girls..juz imagined the amount of time that i had to wait for them to do their shopping..hihi..

we went to primark which is located in oxford street in order to do our shopping..even though it was weekdays,there were still so many people..they even lining up to use the fitting room..however,i met someone that day..someone who used to be famous..n still famous i's pak lah!..hihi..or Tun Abdullah Ahmad's ironic coz i've been in malaysia for 20 years but never saw him..well,life is unpredictable rite..

i went there n approached with the coolest line ever..i said 'assalamualaikum..pak lah?..then he nodded''s so refreshing..then he uttered the best line ever,'enjoy!'..indeed we will..

after that, upon finishing our shopping, we strolled across da oxford street..people were staring at us since we carried so many bags..i supposed that it might be normal back in Malaysia but it's kinda weird here..wutever that means..a lot of people,tourist i supposed were asking us the location of's like we were an ambassador or something..we just carried on n on..

now i'm looking forward for my next trip to london which is due in 24th of december..that will b da coolest trip ever bcoz i will visit most of the interesting place over there..=)

canterbury,kent,united kingdom, the raya..

heyya2..long time no always,i will do the best to invest my time in this thing that we all call blog..n i've got a lot of catching up to do..beginning with this 1 which is about the hari raya celebration that we celebrated almost 2 months ago..

as u can see, this is the first time that we celebrated our raya thousand miles apart from our loved ones..well,there's nothing that we can do about it so we decided just to get on with it..

during the early of the raya morning, when i woke up, a surge of sadness kept coming into my head..then i started to listen to da takbir n some of the raya songs in youtube which in return had worsen my condition..

after that i decided to go for a jog in order to sure the sadness..therefore i went i embracing the 'nothingness' of raya celebration here..that's quite an experience bcoz back in Malaysia there's no way that i will get the chance to do something like that..

in the afternoon, we went to john's house n celebrated our raya my very own surprised,it was quite nice..we got to meet some of the lecturers n took some photos n things like that..

so this is what it feels like to celebrate raya abroad, i told myself..n it's going to b like this for the next 3 years..mayb next year i'll celebrate da raya in europe or else..who knows rite?..=p

canterbury,kent,united kingdom,the arrival..

heyya2..long time no see..huhu..sorry for haven't posted anything for such a very long time..juz not in a mood to write since i went to singapore..but it doesn't matter..coz now i'm full with energy to write..=)

well,for the first time,i am writing this post from more than a thousand miles away from my country,malaysia..this is due to the fact that i've just arrived here in canterbury,kent,united kingdom approximately 2 days ago..finally eyh?..huhu..indeed it's true..coz after 2 years of juz talking n babbling about it,finally it happened..

to b frank,the thought of having arrived in uk n the fact that i'm going to spend the next 3years of my life here still haven't sunk in..i still think that it's all juz a dream..but's not..this is reality..

anyway..during the flight to heathrow airport,something unexpected happened..a passenger had passed away due to heart failure..a very awful experience if u ask me..then,upon our arrival at heathrow,i wuz so excited..if u have in a flight for 12 hours u'll understand why..there we met john n joana,the respected lecturers from our university n then we took 2 coaches to canterbury,kent..

about 1 n a half hour later,we arrived in canterbury,kent..i hav to admit that it's a very nice n beautiful place..when we were showed our accommodation,i wuz amazed..coz it's so splendid..(well,for 3++ pounds per month it better b)..then we took a brief tour around the city of canterbury..a very,very nice place,i hav to say again..huhu..

then on the very next day,we were showed our way around the university's a 10minutes walk from our house..the campus is great of course..but i'm going to need sum time to remember all the ways to here n there..coz i'm still a bit blur n juz followed every1 else..but no worries,coz i'm going to explore the city on my own later..

well,i think i'm going to stop here..i'll write more n more after this lads..=)..

retreating from a wonderful trip..
hye again..finally..the final entry for the trip to singapore..during the end of part 2,i stopped at the point where we almost fainted upon performing our zuhur prayer at the sultan mosque..well,considering the fact that we had walked n walked for hours,it'd be a surprised if we didn't..we still had a lot of places to go,n we still haven't done our shopping friend faez even retreated from our plan to go to orchard road that night n asked me if i could go there alone..i wuz like wut the heck..but he might be rite,we r damn tired..

but juz when it seemed that all hope is lost,we met faez's relative..she's a distant relative of him,as i said b4 in part 1,she's faez's mother's brother's wife's sister..we call her mak a..upon meeting her,she's really happy upon seeing us n lamenting why hadn't we call her earlier..coz if we did,she would've been able to take us to more n more places..but wut's done is done rite..she took us to the arab street n we did a lot of our shopping there..i'm surprised with the fact that it's damn cheap to shop here..u can get 6 keychains for juz 3dollar..a wallet for 2dollar,a shirt for juz 5dollar n lots of other things..i did most of my shopping for my family n friends over there..finally,i said to myself..when u went for a trip,it'd b a must to buy something for ur family n friends..if not then i'd feel a surge of guilt..dun noe why..mayb it's bcoz dat it's a sign of remembrance..wutever that means..u figure that out..lalalala..

after that,mak a took us to a nice place to hav our lunch..she said that they r pioneer in briyani..n many famous people had been there..even najib..well,quite a place..n the briyani also was very delicious..during lunch,we got to hear a lot of stories from her..a bit bout her family,about singapore n wuz in this moment too that mak a received a phone call,from her sister i guess..then after hung up,she told us that we will be going back to our hotel,check out n spend the night at their place question asked..we were in shock..but we didn't hav a choice..then mak a took us to bugis mrt's like petaling street over there..with lotz n lotz of shops n people..since i've done my shopping juz now,i juz made a quick tour over the place without buying anything..there were so many people n it's quite hard for u to do your shopping..but i thought that a girl would definitely never giv a damn bout that n would've done their shopping anyway..but i'm not a girl..nor i'm a dat's it..hihi..

then,we went to our hotel..pliz bear in mind that it's a very,very long walk from the mrt station..but we walked anyway..upon arriving at the hotel,we discovered that we wouldn't be able to get our money back for the other night since it's it meant 63dollar juz burnt like dat..or so we thought..y did i say so?..later u'll know..:P..after finishing our packing,we went to mak a first i wuz like owh my..hav to walk again to the mrt station..with our bags..but then something happened..mak a stopped a cab..can u believe it?..a cab..faez n i were like, seems that mak a really knew exactly wut wuz in our mind..she's very nice really..even if we juz met,the way she approached us was like she had known us for a very long's gud to know a nice people like her..

it took us almost 15minutes to mak a house..upon arriving at her house,we were like this true?'s a double storey house..with lawn n everything..can u imagine? in singapore n get to own a huge house..with the lawn n everything..n there's a car too..not juz a car,it's u hav any idea how much would it cost u to own a car in singapore?..but we kept our amazement to ourselves..then,we met the rest of faez's relative..there's six people residing in the house..4 of them r mak a's siblings n the other 1 is their aunty..we recieved the warmest welcome ever from all of them despite of the fact that their house is undergoing a huge renovation at the moment..they even gave us ang pow..owh my..diz is too much,we both thought..but we couldn't do anything..then we had a rest for a while n went to orchard road that evening..

we took a bus to the mrt station n took a train straight to orchard be exact,orchard road is like starhill..hav u been to bintang walk?..pretty much like dat..except that it's more happening n nice..we walked n's so beautiful n havoc to be here on saturday nite..but hey,it's worth it..:)..then we went to hard rock cafe singapore n mak a bought us a great gift from there..we were overwhelmed at that moment..she's so nice,nice n nice to us..we tried to refuse her gift but to no avail..then,she took us to dinner at coffee bean..we ate egg sandwiches n drank ice blended chocolate..very's an unforgettable meal..very delicious..then we went home..

upon arriving at home,we were so damn tired..but i'd rather not to sleep straightaway..coz i didnt want that night to end..coz we will be going home the next day n i wouldn't want that to happen actually..i was so sad that eventually this wonderful trip will finally come to an end..before dozing off,i read the latest issue of readers digest n reflecting a bit on the trip..but hey,we still hav one place to go's the changi airport..mak a had promised us to take us n we r going to hav our breakfast there at the cool is dat?..then before i knew it,i had fallen asleep..zzzzzzzzz

the next morning,we went to the changi airport,the top 5 on the chart for busiest airport around the world..there r 3 terminal,terminal 1,terminal 2 n terminal 3 with terminal 3 being the latest to be built..we went to terminal 3 first..we discovered that it's so wonderful..the design is very,very nice n splendid indeed..i wuz so amazed..damn amazed a drunken master we took a lot of photos inside,outside n beneath the's airport is a wonder..wutever that means..huhu..after having breakfast,we went for a brief tour to kallang national stadium(kallang roar) n mustapha centre(mydin malaysia) before finally going back..i felt so damn sad at that moment..but hey,there's gotta be more to come rite?..i told myself..

as a brief reflection on this wonderful trip,i had learnt so many things..we should always be nice to people..n we should always stick together as family no matter wut..n no matter where we go,friendship will always be there(only certain people will know wut this actually means,:P)..i would like to thank mak a n all of her family members one more time..meeting u guyz wuz the best thing that ever happened to us..i wish u guys every happiness..hope that we'll meet again another time..n 1 more thing,i kinda discovered my real self in this trip..i realised now wut actually tend to be my's travelling..i really love to travel..n dat's da truth..hope that there's more to come..:)
