Robe Day

It has been 2 weeks since my graduation, and I've finished CAT in December 2014 (yup, it is almost a year already LOLOLLLL). And this late post is due to my final exam that has just finished yesterday (DON'T YOU DARE TO SPOIL MY HOLIDAY BY ASKING HOW WAS IT HOHOHO), mianhe!

Honestly, I did not feel the heat of graduating, even when the invitation letter came into my family's mailbox. It was my parents that were so excited about it, asking me about what to wear, or have I paid for the graduation pack already, and chanting about it for weeks. I guess it is because the finals is just around the corner (can you imagine? Exactly a week after graduation, that's crazy!), so I don't really bother about it.

It remains that way until the day itself, as I woke up that morning, and looked at my baju kurung. It's a mix of white, black and copper brown, with orange as the theme colour. Then I took a look at my robe, I've ironed it last night together with the orange hood (it's the colour of my faculty).

'Okay, it's today,' I murmured to myself.

I got up, showered, and did my Subuh prayer. My family was getting themself ready too. I slipped into my clothes, and all of sudden, I could feel it.

We reached PICC around 7.20, and I was supposed to be at Level 2 at 7.15. I simply took the lift (it was reserved for the VIPs, but who cares, the VIPs were not here yet), as I know it would take me a lot of time as I was wearing heels. Yes, I repeat, HEELS.
Too excited LOL
As I reached Level 2, I saw my friends and they were so busy working on the hood. And taking pictures hahaha
Then, the ceremony began, we're the first session for the graduation.
Forgive my Abang for the shakiness haha

My hands were all sweaty before I got on stage. Miss DD was there, guiding us, and she patted my shoulder and said that everything will be fine.

Perfect timing by Abang
Say hello to the Minister 
I nailed it! Great shot by the official photographer woohoo
I guess the main reason I was not really into celebrating my graduation is because I was expecting Ma will be on stage on behalf of me. That was my dream since the result for CAT Semester 1 had been released in August 2013. I could not fulfill my own dream.

HAAAAAA curi bunga kitaaaaaaaa
But as my parents were really excited about it, especially Pa, the pain healed. I was so glad that Pa was happy, really happy I could say. It went the same for the rest of my family.

My strength, my happiness, my everything
Well, I ain't going to stop. ACCA, here I come.

I've read too much love stories I guess. And I can't wait to write a book of mine. Each of them is sweet in its own way. Why is it sweet? Because they are not just madly in love, but they are also sincere in loving each other.

A book? Ya, maknanya, panjang berjela hua hua hua hua

Balloon, and I

Balloon has always attracted me with its super duper strong force. In fact, whenever I see free balloon giveaways, I'll be right there queing up together with children (most of the time, depends on the situation lol). Hahaha yup, I don't give a damn.

But, it won't stay long with me. It is not because of it popped or flew away, but I could not bear the toddlers's eyes eyeing on the balloon in my possession. You know, those kind of eyes that say 'please give me the balloon'.

So, I'll hold on to it until I head home. Can you see the struggles? I have to endure those eyes (I CANNOT STAND THEIR PLEADING EYES BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST TOO ADORABLE AND AAAAAA I'M SUCH A SOFTIE DEMMIT) all way long.

Yesterday, there was a free balloon giveaway. But, I did not join the crowd because there are so many children waiting for the lady to give them each a balloon. My friends, however, managed to grab two of them. I was like whaaaat and she said, 'I took it for you okay' (MUEHEHEHE MY FRIENDS HAVE KNOWN ME TOO WELL FOR THIS HIHIHI). I'm so happy, and ignored everything around me.

I thought of bringing it home, but as I went down the escalator and heading to the carpark, I saw a girl with her brother and parents, waiting for the lift. I showed my balloon to her, and she nodded with a big smile. As I handed her the balloon, she said 'Thank you aunty'. Glad that I could make a child happy.

p/s: Aunty pun boleh lololololollllll

He that got married at 20

His name is Zarif, and I've known him since 2013. He is a crackhead; he loves to joke around and annoy people with his jokes (well not really 'annoyed', but I do feel like choking him at times). 

Without our knowledge, we have a lot in common. The first is that both of us are in the same age, and we share the same passion of wrecking our heads in the world of accounting. Both of us favour to engage with people, that is how we first get to know each other, which is through volunteering. He believes in high school love, and so do I. But, the thing that differs us is that he sealed his belief with a halal knot by marrying the one that he loves at a very young age.

This is not a post solely about his recent wedding, but a piece of mind that I had after hearing his love story in brief.

He'd known her since Year 3 in primary school. He's unsure when did he realised that he likes her, yet he started to make a move on her during the preparation for PMR (as I've stated earlier, he's crazy). 

Aisyah, his beautiful wife, is such a darling. A very wife-material choice I have to admit, tip top. She is a year younger than us, but I believe she is smart and wise. She spoke softly, and brought herself as a wife to Zarif very well (she recognised my friend and I before Zarif had a chance to indroduce us, I'm honoured).

They are so lucky as both families blessed their decision to get married at a very young age, in fact they are still studying.

Most people say that high school lovers won't last, but they manage to prove it wrong. I've been eyeing on their love story in Instagram since Zarif told me that he's engaged. On his wedding day, he treated Aisyah like a queen, I could see that he loves her sincerely.

Barakallah my friend. May Allah bless your marriage till the end of your life. Anddddddddd please don't stop being a crackhead, even when you have children later on.

3 Muka

Kita semua ada tiga muka. Muka pertama yang kebanyakan orang tengok, lagi-lagi apa yang strangers nampak. Muka kedua, muka dengan orang yang selalu ada dengan kita, macam family, kawan baik and boyfriend. Muka ketiga, muka yang kita sahaja tahu macam mana, sebab selalunya muka ni ada masa kita tengah ada masalah atau rasa gila babun punya down.

Muka kedua. Tak ramai yang nampak aku dengan muka ni. Selalunya ramai yang kata aku muka ketat.

Tapi bila aku dah tonjolkan muka ni pada orang yang aku dah selesa, dia yang tak boleh terima. Mungkin dia selesa dengan suasana 'stranger' dulu kot? Entah.

Define woman

A real man never hurt a woman.

Be very careful when you make a woman cry, because God counts her tears.

A woman came out from man's rib, not his feet to be walked on, nor his head to be superior, but from his side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and beside his heart to be loved.

Visit Malaysia #005: Melaka Again, with the Es

This time, kita pergi dengan gegirl Eminent weeheeeeeee!! Ni memang random plan, geng pun random hahahaha

Aida: Mijah, kau free tak?
Me: Awat? Class la cam biasa.
Aida: Melaka jom? Ngan Mang, Melly sekali.
Me: Aaaaaa on je la.

Depa tengah cuti sem. Therefore, I skipped my Friday class. Muehehehehehe

Here, I present to youuuuuuu, the FOUR LOLOLOLOLLLL

Aida; the drebar
MangJi; sidekick Aida
Melloy; tukang bising
And me; pemberat kereta wahahaha
So we started our trip with WATERPARKKKKKKK! Who does not love waterpark (you must hate bathing too ewwww sit away from me hahaha)? Haritu dah pergi ngan geng kolej, so this time, dah tahu where to go muehehehe.. Banyak amek video sebab Aida bawak Gopro (mannnnn it is so cool dohh, got to have one soon). 

Family raft yang melipat orang
We went to almost all slides, except for the one yang tinggi gila and super steepppp, ada yang rasa nak meninggal nanti hahaha! Tu pun, ada this one slide nama dia Ice-cream (a cone-shape slide at the end and it's bigg), ketaq lutut bila keluar daripada float and we almost had a heart attack. Oh oh and there is this one slide named Family Raft (it's a big flat raft-like float), it is fun, tapi mini heart attack kat situ sebab dia terkejut-kejut bila dia macam nak lipat-lipat kitorang dalam tu.

We stayed for about 5 hours before we gave up. Oh, before I forgot, we spent around RM 40 for each ticket (adult price), which included lunch. We rented a big locker that cost us RM 12 per usage, and 2 double tube (8-shape) which cost RM 11 each and RM 10 for deposit.

Next stop, Pantai Klebangggggggggg!!

Seronok sangat kejar bubbles
Plan asal nak pergi bukit pasir, tapi ada air bertakung tengah jalan. Ada je kereta lalu, but we didn't want to spoil this trip. That is when we saw this bubble thingy. Masa beli tu ada mengadu kat pakcik yang jual tu yang kitorang tak dapat pergi situ.

Pakcik: Tak payah la pergi nak, awak semua perempuan. Dah petang dah pun ni, kejap lagi Maghrib.

Terpempan sekejap kat situ. Baru perasan, kitorang terlampau syok sangat bersuka-ria, sampai lupa untuk jaga diri. Thank you pakcik! We had fun anyway with the bubbles.

We then decided to check in the hotel that we've booked earlier, as Magrhrib will be approaching soon. Jeng jeng jeng.. Guess what? Bila sampai je hotel, receptionist tu tak bagi check in. Reason? We booked a 2-person room where we're actually 4! Dangggg student kot come on. Beria aku ngan Aida call operator to cancel it, selamba bagi alasan ada emergency. Memang emergency la, mana nak tidoq malam tu woi adehh. Nasib baik boleh, apa lagi terus chiao ah.

Jadi, bermulalah misi pencarian tempat tidur malam ni. Mang navigate, Aida drive, Melly tengok keliling kot-kot ada hotel yang boleh redah, aku usha balik hotel online. Bila cari yang murah, banyak yang jenis dorm and the bathroom is not detached. Gilaa kau memang tak ah. We went to 2 hotels already, harga walk-in lari jauh dari bajet. Aida dah bersandar.

Aida: Kita try cari satu lagi.
Mang: Kalau takde? Balik KL?
Aida: Aku mintak tolong ayah aku la kot hahaha

Last try, search kat area Banda Hilir. Jumpa satu, dekat dengan Dataran Pahlawan, and still lari daripada bajet. But, semua setuju untuk duduk situ, takkan nak balik KL kot hahahaha.. Kira okay la, tak la banyak sangat lari, plus dalam RM 100 from our original budget for a room with 2 queen-size bed, and the most important is with a detached bathroom, siap ada water heater weh, luas pulak tu. In fact, dah dekat dengan tempat-tempat nak pusing esok, compared to the one yang kitorang booked before. Takde la banyak buang masa for travelling.

Lepas check in, we went out for dinner (more to supper actually because it's 10+). Andddd we met our headboy, as he saw Mang checked in Melaka through Swarmapp.
Kat KL takde pulak nak jumpa LOL
After a good (soundly) sleep, kita jalan-jalan!!!! We parked in front of Menara Taming Sari and simply walked around, random visits to the places. Oh, the parking ticket was just RM 5 for the whole day, it's totally worth it. You can park anywhere in Melaka with the ticket.

The first place that we went is Menara Taming Sari where we're given a chance to ride and view 360 degrees throughout Banda Hilir. As it was still early (we're among the first customers haha), the queue was not that long yet. The ticket was RM 15 each (student price with myKad), and they even gave us 2 packs which each contains a water bottle and snacks. The ride was about 7 minutes and we're given a briefing about all the exciting places around the tower throughout the ride.

Aida main-main dengan statues
dalam Muzium Samudera
Next, we headed to Muzium Samudera, which is located near to the tower. The museum itself was  built as a replica of Flor de la Mar, a Portuguese ship, which was  always related to Afonso de Albuquerque. The replica represented  Malacca's dominance in maritime during its golden era. With only  RM 5 per entry, we're free to discover all the exhibits on our own. It also provided the visitors with a gadget that will brief you about all the exhibits.

I was so into the wooden sculpture, it's such a beaut.

Not to forget, the River Cruise, which is next to the museum . It was so fun, and we only need to share the boat with another family. It was a great ride, with all the murals on each side of the river. We even passed a few kampungs, the red painted Dutch buildings and many others. This was when we realised how clean Melaka is, compared to KL. It's not that the garbage bin was everywhere, some were still in walking distance, but they managed to keep the city clean along with the great management by the city council.


We keep on touring around Melaka, and we ended up heading toward the Stadthuys. These red buildings symbolised Melaka, and there were a lot of tourists from all over the world (I heard someone talking in Korean, and maybe Russian too).

I personally love this shot
Here are some of the cool sculptures.

Waiting for the next leader I guess? (cue for the one now to beware LOL)
I'm not so sure what does this mean, but I think it has something to do with people nowadays and technology 
We then headed up to the Fort as it will be dawn soon. Not much info to understand what it's all about, but I love the way it was built. The bricks were left without being covered with cement, it's so cool.
In the fort
There were a lot of trishaws that were nicely decorated (there were some with Frozen theme too!) as we went down from the Fort.

The decorations for the beca was so coollllll and the pakcik was  nice too

That night, we strolled along Jonker Walk after having dinner with Melly's family. It was like pasar malam, and the hawkers were mostly Chinese. There were a few craft shops too that sell crafty artworks and handmade stuffs.

The next day, we visited the 3D Art Museum before heading back to KL. The arts were so alive, and the best part was there were marks for each art that show which angle to make it look like a 3D.

Andddd here is some of the results.

Our attempt to make 'a Beatles-like walk but someone fall in the middle'
Melly: Pahal kau boleh keluar pulak ni??
Mang: Sebab aku ada super power muehehehe
Trapped in a glass
The Majestic Mang with no cape lololololol
Eh eh tak maluuuuu usha orang
With that, it marks the end of our girls getaway. Full of randomness, yet so fun.

Reminiscing our moments in school, danggggg we really miss it. All the fun together.

3 days and 2 nights with them, terubat sikit rindu tu maybe?

Let's do this again, shall we?
